The winged snake suddenly comes barreling though the air right at you. You grab it out of the air and it coils around your arm, it calms down considerably as it tries to chew on your hand.“Master! Master! Did you see? Sazglangolor can almost fly now, I’m helping him practice.” Ayla runs up excitedly seeming quite pleased with herself.“You shouldn’t throw snakes, it really doesn’t like it.” You try to explain to her.“I know but how else will he learn? It’s like when you make me practice things master.” She shakes her head smugly, obviously still completely oblivious to how her actions affect others despite being able to read minds.Completed Research>Biological science – With the large number of researchers who work in this field all farming, brewing and animal training is greatly improved. Current ongoing researchMadblade – Research is nearly complete, the enchantments have been fully untangled and final examination of their function has now begun.Time distortion – Current progress into researching this topic has stalled.Lazarus serum – With the new addition of biological expertise the researchers think that they have new insight into the problem with the extraction of the nanites.Bio information update – Utilizing the data she has collected Hestia will upgrade and fully integrate the technology acquired from ring three as well as incorporate information on any creatures that have been encountered.(1/2)
(2/2)New items available for research>Meat cloning – Current food supplies are rather limited but the new equipment gathered from ring three it will be possible to grow meat for consumption.Current problems>Research rings – Talking with the new researchers you have recruited it has become clear that none even knew that ring four was taken out. Someone with significant authority must be enforcing a total information blackout.>Containment breach – A few of the researchers claim that Ayla’s winged snake is dangerous and should be properly contained. They show bite makes from their time studying the creature.>Large creature – Since the creation of the sea of flames outside the city goblins say that there is something big stalking them. Sensors indicate nothing.“This report is dumb, Sazglangolor isn’t bad, he is cute.” Ayla complains as she pries the snake off of you.“Sazglangolor is going to go practice more flying now.” Ayla declares, the snake hisses in defeat as she floats away with the creature captive once more.> Deal with another research ring> Try to find the goblin’s creature> Go visit someone> Delve into hell> Train> Other Welcome back to Afterlife Quest!Twitter: https://twitter.com/ApophisquestsTGAskfm: http://ask.fm/ApophisTGPastebins: http://pastebin.com/u/ApophisTGPrevious Threads: http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?tags=Afterlife%20Quest

>>42106598>> Try to find the goblin’s creature
>>42106598> Try to find the goblin’s creature>Have Hestia correlate the data in the winged-snake for us, so we can make an educated decision on whether to place it in containment. Also, warn Ayla, that if Zazglangolor hurts someone it might have to be placed in containment, she could play with it there, but it might not be permitted to leave.
You leave Ayla to her ‘training’ and go to Hestia’s monitor room to get some more information. As usual when you enter Hestia’s blue avatar fills the screen, it nearly imperceptibly smiles at you.“Hello Hestia, do you have anything more for me about this creature sighting?”“I have deployed additional sensors in the area, however the only notable change from normal in the area is an increase in the number of feral feline creatures.”“Could this be like the giant flying creature?”“Diagnostics are still unable to determine how that creature avoided scans, so I am unable to calculate such a possibility.”“Is Ayla’s new pet snake dangerous?”“Data recovered indicates ‘Sazglangolor’ is aggressive and cunning, high probability of inflicting injury on goblins or humans.” Hestia drones on. “No danger is posed to you, Ayla, or the city in general however.”“Anything else interesting about it?”“Marked for highest priority study, possibility of draconic heritage. Perhaps its wings are a further clue?”Sazglangolor’s wings look like:>Reptilian>Feathered>Insectoid“Hestia, if you don’t mind please try not to let it hurt anyone while I go look for this other creature.”>Hunt alone>Bring backup>Other

You keep everyone calm and wait.The large creature begins to slowly creep closer and closer.You can feel it right in front of you, it should be clearly visible and yet it isn’t and Hestia still is unable to confirm its presence. You charge a small laser, you hope, and prepare to unleash it as soon as the creature appears.>24 vs dc 25 failureGarbage goes flying as a massive feline tears itself free from the ground, a claw darts forward and your lizard is instantly torn nearly completely in half, sending you and Ayla flying before you can shoot off your laser. The giant creature then stoops down grabbing the lizard’s regenerating body and shakes it back and forth before biting the lizard to pieces. Hestia immediately directs the robots and goblins to open fire, but the gunfire and missile blasts miss completely or harmlessly are deflected off the beast’s sleek coat. The tiger beasts also begin to break free from cover and race towards the goblins in their vehicles.>Your status - 22/22 hp, 30/30 mana, 16/16 external mana – shielded> Lizard status – DEAD???>Ayla status – 3/3 hp, 210/210 mana – shielded> Hestia’s robot status – 50/50 hp– shielded>Goblins and robots status –fighting off swarming tigers with Hestia’s aid – shielded>Enemy status – One gargantuan feline creature, thousands of saber tooth tiger beasts>Attack the giant beast>Try to use a laser>Have Ayla attack the big one with you>Have Ayla thin the number of creatures >Other

>>42107920oh! great then, I picked just the right number.
Looks like laser the big one while Ayla attacks it too?3d10+11 to try this again.Use spells? Hellfire? 10 mana good for laser?

>>42108094Ayla should poison the shit out of the tiger i think. High ki and able to pump a lot of mana into it.Otherwise i agree to this tactic
>>42108068Looking over the spell list, is the paralize spell that Ayla used on the Hell lord Bind?
>>42108172It was a lightning attack
>>42108172No, she rolled 100 twice on lightning for additional spell effects. She likes the spells mana arrow, searing ray, and lighting as is noted by her * for preparation. She don't have infinite mind or a database to draw from like you or Hestia.Still need two more rolls unless everyone is happy with the 27.

>Your allies rolled amazingly well and there was no good consensus for your spell use.“Hit the big one Ayla!” You yell as you charge mana for a laser.You get a better look at the creature as it darts towards you at incredible speed. Its claw slices through your shield and cuts into you. You body is thankfully able to regenerate the damage. There is a massive pulse of mana as Hestia throws out spells, she must have drained the entire city of power for a split second. Lightning randomly arcs through the tigers ending their lives as they instantly burst into flame from the surge of electricity. The creatures begin to scatter away from the robots and goblins, terrified of Hestia.The huge creature moves to attack again, but Ayla intercepts it with a bolt of lightning. The more lightning strikes tear into the beast temporally stunning it. Which gives you the opening to unleash your laser.>28 vs highest dc 20You try to use ignite weapon with your laser, it worked with hellfire so why not a spell? Then you unleash a giant burst of flame, electricity, and light. The massive cat creature is fighting the aftereffects of Ayla’s lightning and is unable to dodge taking the blast head first.>Your status - 22/22 hp, 30/30 mana, 12/16 external mana – Protected by Hestia>Ignite weapon 11/12 turns.> Lizard status – DEAD???>Ayla status – 3/3 hp, 170/210 mana – shielded and protected by Hestia> Hestia’s robot status – 50/50 hp– shielded>Hestia’s active spells – Stoneskin 11/12 turns, Fervor 11/12, Fortune 11/12, Precision 11/12, Slow 11/12, Aura of fear 11/12, Ignite weapon 11/12.>Goblins and robots status – Culling the fleeing beasts – shielded and protected by Hestia>Enemy status – One vaporized giant feline creature, thousands of dying and fleeing saber tooth tiger beasts>Let the others run away>Kill them all>Try to capture them>OtherAnd first 1d100 to try to loot the vaporized soul of the giant creature.

>>42108496Save them for analysis.
>>42108496>Save them for laterhuh that's different, let's try to study why it's like this before consuming it.
Imagine the effect of using maximized void power with max mana laser.
>>42108529It'll be a true religeous experience.We'll save that for the next possible hell lord we kill.I'm already thinking about when we wont need to use our mouth to use this lazer attack, but instead different parts of our body, like our eyes or hands.Like a kamehameha wave, or cyclop's eyebeams.
You have Hestia, the robots and the Goblins begin to round up the creatures. While you search for the remains of your lizard, and possible a soul orb. Your connection to life draws you to a pile of tiny pearls, did the blast from your laser manage to damage even the soul orb?You hear growling. The giant lizard’s head is gnashing its teeth as it regenerates from what should have been death. You help it along a bit with magic, you’ve already drunk half the mana potion today so you try to send your mana into it in the opposite way Ayla drains things. It makes you feel weak, but your own regeneration fixes that. So you sit for a while healing the lizard back to full health.“I see that the lizard has recovered.” Hestia’s adaptive robot approaches. “Nearly five thousand of the feline creatures have been captured.”“Good, but what do you think of these?” You hold out the orbs for Hestia to examine.“They appear to be what was previously cataloged as soul orbs.” The robot grabs one and tries to damage it. “Despite the smaller size, they remain just as indestructible.”“Would we be able to learn more back at the city?”“Doubtful, if they truly hold the same properties as previously studied examples then there is nothing I can do to study them.” Hestia informs you. “Teleportation back to the city is now prepared, just say when you want to leave.”> Deal with another research ring> Consume orbs anyways> Go visit someone> Delve into hell> Train> Other
>>42108741>Consume orbs anywaysLooks like we can't study them :/> TrainLet's keep training our intelligence and will power, I'd like to take power in hell, but I don't want to be constrained by it's laws.We could also help research on the lazarus serum. I believe it's near completion.

>>42108741Go visit research projects and such, yeah.Let's also have hestia try to interview all of the biological researchers to see what they know about goblins, and to think of ways to get them their intelligence and trollform back.That was a goal, but it's turning out to be rather long-term it seems.

>>42109336Did we decide what type of wings Zazglangolor has yet?Cause when he was first mentioned, I pictured feathered wings.
>>42109502I'm for feathered too
>>42109502I wanted reptile wings, but I'm cool with feathered.Anything but insectile
>>42109502It was tied between feathered and reptile. But I guess it'll go to feathers since people seem to want that slightly more now.
“Hestia, please bring me to the research center I will assist your studies.”“Master that’s so boring! We should go play with Sazglangolor.”There is the teleportation flash and you find yourself in Hestia’s monitor room.“I hope you don’t mind me cutting the pouting short, I sent her to her pet.” Hestia says while preparing equipment for you to work with. “Your assistance with calculating how to compress space and manipulate gravity was most valuable. The researchers are also still struggling with the study of the lizard’s regenerative ability.”>33 vs lower dc 27You look over Hestia’s work so far and correct mistakes in the theoretical models she developed, then the two of you bounce ideas back and forth for a while formulating new equations and designing the process and machinery needed to manipulate time. You recall your arrival here after that Chinese guy hit you with the pommel of his sword, there was some kind of time field there if you recall properly so you are able to work off your experience to further improve your work here.“I believe that with this our work is complete. I will begin to install areas of altered time around the city to improve productivity and defenses. Everyone’s homes will be updated to include a variable adjustment so that no time will pass outside while sleeping if desired.” Hestia proudly states when you finish.(1/2)
(2/2)“Do you need help with anything else?”“No, with this project complete I will be able to easily finish studying the madblade and incorporating the genetic data I have gathered thus far.” Hestia explains, this time you easily catch the subtle changes in her avatar, yes your eyes are certainly working better than before.“I’ll go look at the research into the giant lizard then.” You say your goodbyes and walk over to the newly setup bio-labs. The researchers are friendly enough, but they seem a bit too friendly, too happy to see you. It probably would look to an outsider like you brainwashed these people or something. It is fairly creepy so you just make sure that they obtained the pieces of the lizard that didn’t regenerate, possibly some inactive nanites for them to study in the flesh.They can probably handle it on their own.> Deal with another research ring> Check up on Ayla and the snake> Go visit someone> Delve into hell> Train> Other
>>42109586>> Check up on Ayla and the snake
>>42109586>TrainMind, Wisdom, Intelligence.Prepareing for Lordship 101.
>>42109586Have the lab areas have each individual room with adjustable time. That way, someone can walk out while waiting for something that takes a while to be finished, and come back and have it be done if they do the math correctly. Also, researchers can make a lot more progress from an outside perspective, IE ours, resulting in vast jumps in tech to those who aren't in slowtime.Prepare a hyperbolic time chamber and go in for some INTENSE TRAINING.
>>42109721honestly, we should just make our whole personal house into a hyperbolic time chamber, that way we have more personal time to devote to studying and training, and other recreational activities we want to do.Like maybe setting up a poker knight with some of the original research guys. That sounds like it'd be cool. Maybe they'd be able to induct Reginald into the glorious life of TTRPGs.
>>42109721If we put hestia's core systems in a slowtime area, from an outside perspective she'd be able to calculate things an insane amount faster, too. She might not like it, though, and it has the potential of wearing her systems down a lot quicker (again, from our perspective)
Hestia will be making time things all over for you. Looks like training wins.3d10+10 for effectivenessSpeed up time to train more, faster?>Y>NWrite-ins for training for extra bonus maybe

>>42109828Yes.Work on: Meditating in hot and cold temperature extremes, gravity extremes, while being electrocuted, and environments that we cannot breathe in.Then, do physical training in those things - dexterity training in the gravity extremes will probably be pretty good, along with strength and endurance training.Then, do pain training/bone hardening by punching and kicking into the sturdiest objects we have available all day long, sometimes heating or cooling or electrifying said objects.Then let's go through a rigorous schooling experience with Hestia - not just testing, but actual schooling.
>>42109905oh yeah that's a good classic idea too, we can control gravity now to make it heavier.I mean damn we might as well build a personal training space in our house while we go through this training montage.
Nice plans for training.>>42109956Hestia has already implied that your current level in her training simulation doesn’t exist and it was her directly interacting with you under the guise of the program.
>>42109828btw OP has Reginald's hair grown longer? What length is it currently? Are we still even ageing?
>>42109998Good question about age, you know for sure that since you have found the lich's crystal less than 6 months has passed. The goblins have proven to be adept at building things working very fast.You guys can come up with specifics with hair and beard if you want.
>>42110084I declare we have tony stark hair an beard
>>42110084I'd think it'd look something like this, I don't think we've even looked into a mirror since we're gotten here, nor shaved.We could chane it to whatever right now though.
>>42110156change*>>42110130I'm cool with tony stark hair styles, something like this then?
>>42110206YES thats exactly what i was thinking.
This sucks, but I really need to go to the store, sorry guys hopefully I’m back quick and we’ll keep things going a bit longer than usual to make up for it.Feel free think on anything that I should have addressed in the mean time though.
Alright, made it safely back with booze.Finishing this training montage.
>>42110928Had nothing to think on, welcome back OP.
Again you feel like something is eating at you, Ayla is probably up to no good right now. No, you will treat her like an adult any trouble she gets into she can fix. So you seek out Hestia once more.“Hestia could you set up an area for me to train in? Adjustable time and gravity would be very helpful so that I can get more done faster.”“Are you not worried about the effects on your body?”“I regenerate so it will be fine.”You get teleported to a room you haven’t seen before. There is a track, weights, a pool, some machines, a computer.“I was unsure what you wanted to train with so I have prepared several things for you. I will review your training actions and prepare new facilities for you in your room.”“That sounds good, but I don’t have a room. You built an entire mansion for me, no doubt with plenty of input from Ayla from what I have seen. ”You push that from your mind for now and then begin your training. You push gravity up to double normal, and struggle to perform even simple tasks like swimming. You stick with basic training for some time to acclimate your body to the increase in gravity.Then you begin with the torture, temperature extremes and electrocution while meditating in the pool. You push your implants to the limit finding that intense vacuum causes the oxygen replacer to fail.(1/2)
(2/2)You use your resistance to damage to test just how far you can go physically attacking something before it hurts you, turns out anything less than a solid hunk of hell forged metal set ablaze with hellfire doesn’t even faze you.You continue to push past your limits since your body regenerates near instantly if you go too far too fast. At ten times normal gravity you feel your heart begin to give out, unable to continue pumping blood through your body. So that is what you work in, limbs acting as dead weight as you struggle to even live under the crushing force.So you work with Hestia’s learning program to learn more, you feel like you are back inside virtual reality streams of data fly by challenging you to expand your ability to think. When you finish memorizing, you face a gauntlet of increasingly difficult tests but you finally are able to pass the thousand simultaneous tests of level one million. When you step back from the computer you realize that you’re body has been breaking down and regenerating this entire time and you no longer feel burdened by the effects of high gravity.You make use of your spells to train yourself to remove your mental limits, moving faster and more precisely than before, wielding weaponry with greater finesse.

>>42111660yeah I'd good with doing that, we can start focusing on other starts like con and strength now that int is at 100.Is the Lazarus serum done?
>>42111583Have the Goblins slowly train up to getting used to higher and higher gravities, just like you did. Have hestia make sure they don't go too high and end up killing themselves, though. And have healers and potions on standby for the ones training.
>>42111716Oh good point anonIf the serum isn't done, let's go help them try to extract and engineer it.And afterwards we can give lizzie a few treats, we haven't been all that good to her lately, making her go to hell and whatnot. Maybe see if we can't put a translator into her so she can communicate with us better in some way?
>>42111660>> Deal with another research ring>>42111660yea
>>42111735I'll support that.
So here the list of ideas i support:>delve into hell>maie goblins endure high G training (not above 3x earth gravity)>make a translator for our mount and train it hard
>>42111835I think lizzie needs more affection than training, her opinion of us drained a little since hell.I don't want our pet to hate us.
>>42111849Reward her for training hard with chunks of meat, she will love us and get stronger.

You feel weightless as you get used to normal gravity on your walk back to the research center. You bust down the doors to the Bio-lab by accident and awe everyone with your raw power. Then you proceed to kick the researchers out of the way to research the lizard’s hypospray implant yourself.“Hestia are there any samples of the nanties that have been successfully extracted from the lizard?”“Negative, the current theory is that the nanites are highly unstable outside the host’s body, how they are able to differentiate is unknown.”“Perhaps they have some kind of life sensing ability, if so I think I can mimic the effect long enough to study them.”“An interesting hypothesis, I will teleport the lizard to you now for sample extraction.”There is a flash of light and a blood stained lizard appears, it looks very unhappy that its feeding was interrupted. You pat the lizard to calm it down and draw a sample of its blood. You maintain a constant pulse of life energy via your healing touch.>42 the answer.You place the sample under a high powered microscope, and it reveals that nanites are present in the blood sample. Successful extraction! “Thanks lizard. Hestia I have a viable sample please allow the lizard to continue its feasting.”The lizard vanishes via teleport once more.(1/2)
(2/2)“I will proceed to extract a single nanite for examination.” Hestia says as robotics limbs surround you. A small pulse of focused gravity separates the nanites from the blood and you then have to split your focus on maintaining two areas with life energy. You hold your focus for hours as Hestia delicately maneuvers single nanites through batteries of tests. Every time one nanite crumbles into nothingness, another takes its place until eventually you finish.“I have successfully replicated the design of the nanite. I will design a process for constructing and containing them for future use. We will now be able to vastly improve other implants as well with additional study.” Hestia announces“Thanks for your help, I’m not sure I could keep them from crumbling and study them at the same time.”“Your part was far more important, without your control of ‘life energy’ as you call it the study of the nanites was doomed to never succeed.”> Deal with another research ring> Go visit someone> Delve into hell> Other

>>42112425Dr. Marissa Harrington is effectively you head of research since she is the smartest researcher you’ve found so far. Of course with Hestia guiding everything behind the scenes and her now twice upgraded system, you don’t really need or have an official head of research.
>>42112437Oh, we could have Hestia perform extensive interrogations by placing him in a 'fast time' area so that, from our perspective, she gets info out of him really quickly, but really she can take as long as she wants getting info from him, using methods that would take too long otherwise.
No real consensus other than going back to hell it seems.New nanites will be ready later.Who do you want to take with you?
>>42112800Ayla, no one else can really support us right now.
The researchers are astounded by your fast and over the top research style. You leave the research center behind with a majority of the researched awed. You stroll through the city’s nonsensical pathways looking for Ayla. You find her floating around the fancier lakeside area playing with the feathered serpent, who seems to be able to fly on its own now.“Ayla would you like to go somewhere with me?” You ask as you approach her.“Of course I would love to go on a romantic date with you master, we can -” She starts rambling on about how amazing of an evening you’ll be having.“Hell.” You interrupt.“Wha?”“Let’s go to hell, I want to see if it destabilized any since we last visited.”“Ugh, master you idiot! Hell isn’t a place to take a lady.”“Oh then you don’t want to go?”“I didn’t say that! But master Sazglangolor can’t come.” She tries to appeal to your sense of empathy for the snake. However you can see in the snake’s eyes, ‘yes please take her away from me’, unspoken words pleading with you.“Well if you want to go you’ll just have to play later.”“Fine.” She puffs her cheeks out in false indignation and firmly grasps your arm.You stroll back through the city with her hanging off of you as you seek out the portal to hell that Hestia has sealed away.“I see you desire to go to hell, please take additional probes with you.” Hestia’s avatar appears on a small screen next to the sealed door and a container of probes is teleported next to you. “Please attempt to stay safe, you can always leave you don’t need to fight everything you see.”The door opens revealing the large mirrored surface, and you step through the mirror portal into hell.On the other side you notice that the ever present heat has greatly diminished, if anything it feels lifeless.

“Master this place is all different. It seems less evil” Ayla says while floating about looking at the empty buildings.“Try to find an imp, we can ask what is going on around here.”>97You search around for a while looking for any imps, you hear distant frantic chirping and pull Ayla along to find the source.A large creature with cages is pursuing a pack of imps, several more follow behind already having cages full of dead or dying imps.The imps spot you and scramble their way over to you.“Lord slayer!

We ought to modify hestia's scanners to have hoverflight capabilities, and to run off of ambient mana as a powersource with a backup electrical generator in case of areas with no mana.Then we can just mass produce scanners and put her eyes and ears all over the place, no need to take them with us since they'll come on their own.
>>42114632Good idea, but I'm not sure if it will work. Since, Ayla thinks it's impossible to use the ambiant mana, it might be a problem for Hestia as well.

“Master! We should save the cute imps, those mean things are hurting them.” Ayla says.You heft your sword and race past the imps to engage these new demons. >40You slice into the first creature, its arms cut off easy enough and then you plunge your sword into its head killing it. You prepare to engage the next creature but you are suddenly interrupted.There is a wave of mana behind you as well over a hundred mana arrows are unleashed by Ayla. The wall of force warps around you and strikes the final six of the creatures with pinpoint accuracy, killing them instantly as the cages of imps clatter to the ground.“Whoops! Sorry master I know you were trying to show off.” Ayla floats over to the cages and releases the captured imps. “But they were hurting these cute little evil things.”The imp is nearly crushed to death by Ayla’s affections, poor demon.“Lord slayer! You have helped us. We will remember.” The imps chirp.“If you are thankful why don’t you tell me what is happening here.” “Invaders!

Freedom for the cuties! They can come play with Sazglangolor!” Ayla seems to be excited by the idea.“Yes, if you promise to behave then I can take you out of hell.”“Free from lords! Free from hunters!” The imps cheer. “We’ll try our best lord slayer.”You have Hestia open the portal for the imps to flee through. A few take flight to spread the news to other imps in hiding across this plane of hell and a couple remain behind to guide you to the next part of hell. They take you to a central part of the city and stop.“This is it lord slayer. See how the plane weakens?

We captured a few of the flyers/cliff racers before killing the big boss one, right? I remember a post about having done so, but we didn't capture as many as we could have because of how violent they were which resulted in a few accidental suicides with the nets. What happened to them after the big bad died, and have any laid any sort of eggs?
>>42115952I still have not seen that movie. Any similarities are pure coincidence.
>>42116071They all went ded, mang.But thas good mang.Thas reel, gud.Because fuck Cliff Racers.
>>42116107Not sure how the ones in our care would have died. The ones on the battlefield, sure.
>>42116134Well, they were apparently just scales of the big dude.When he died, they -all- died.Magic.
>>42116134Unlike the fish beasts, spiders, crabs, lizards, and saber tooth beasts the flying creatures were not independent beings. They were simply mobile scales that fell from the main body. When you absorbed the soul but failed to acquire the same shedding ability all the little ones turned to ash and crumbled away.You can always try to will them back in existence, if you want to be the most horrible person ever.
We should improve our food production at this rate; seeing as we recruit like a cult leader.
I wonder...Since we have electric ki, if we used a spell that caused unlife like the orb...Would we make electric skeletons?
>76“Let’s look around more first, perhaps we will find more imps to free.”“Master, you are so smart. I forgot about them already.” Ayla says while you begin to explore the broken demonic city.“How could you forget about them, they were just here a moment ago.” You find more empty buildings, as though this place was created to be just a model of a real city to practice destroying it. You take pieces of broken stones and brick, it doesn’t seem different but perhaps Hestia could examine it closer. “I was too excited to try to open a portal to a new place. I’ve never tried that before master.”“Well try to stay focused and find something interesting down here.”You continue walking until your reach the edge of the city, here some lava still flows so you collect some rocks from the area.“Look master I found something!” Ayla shouts out and points off to a creature in the distance.It looks like a wispy insubstantial horse.>Catch it>Kill it>Ignore it, giant lizards are better>Other

“Master.” Ayla turns to you with her eyes shining.“Yes, we are going to catch it.” You say and she takes off after it without waiting for you.The horse sees her coming and darts off leading you on a wild chase through lava fields and hellfire.> 39 vs upper dc 37“Ayla, I’ll heard it you can shape shift to grab it.” You call out your plan and Ayla melts into a cloud of smoke which spreads out to prepare to grab the horse.It takes a while but eventually you manage to trick the horse into running right at Ayla, her clouds grab at it and try to hold it in place. The horse has too much power though and starts to break free.You however have had enough time to catch up so you tackle the horse to the ground pinning it into place despite its protests.“Yes! We got it master.” Ayla bounces through the air happily.“I would prefer for my property to not be stolen.” A raspy voice says from behind you.“This guy is ba-” Ayla tries to say, but a gesture from the man cuts he short.“Silence creature.” The man says.He cocks his head to the side and examines you for a moment.“You are the one who destroyed the lord of this level correct?” He asks. “How fortuitous, hand over the deed and I shall allow you the honor of you both dying by my hand.”“This is the third time someone has gotten cocky with me.

You charge your laser with every last bit of mana you can gather into it.“Hahaha fool, you want to stand and fight?” The man laughs at your attack. “You cannot hope to defeat me.” Then you channel the void in to yourself, the remaining heat from the hellscape around you vanishes as you become empty. The whispering voices echo throughout your mind begging for you to pay attention to them.The man’s attack comes into fruition as a giant pentagram appears in front of him, a portal tears open and a massive flaming winged demon strides forth to destroy you. The oppressive weight of its evil rolls off of you as though it doesn’t exist.“Reginald, it is time.

“Don’t you see?” The man asks. “You are helpless before my power.”He doesn’t seem to notice that you just wiped his demon and body from existence. The voices tug at your mind, laughing at the foolishness displayed. No really how do you not notice half your body missing?“Now hand over the deed and I shall allow you the honor of you both dying by my hand.”He is repeating himself, perhaps that laser did more than you thought. Again power pulses around him and a pentagram forms in front of him. >36 vs dc ???An imp appears.“Lord slayer!” It chirps, wait it notices you? “The void is tricky even for lords, lord slayer is mighty to control it.”The imp vanishes again with a puff of flame.“What?!?” The man seems surprised. “How did you defeat a demon of that level so quickly?”Alright losing half his brain did a number on this guy, it’s a mercy kill at this point. The whispering voices mock him.You walk up to the man who is franticly trying to cast another spell and you grab him. The whispers guide you a take his pathetic life.The little life he has left is torn from his body, you feel it drain away into the void becoming nothing.You plunge your hand into the remains of his desiccated chest and pull forth an orb.What was once a dense fist sized orb is now neatly divided in two, half holds the man’s power its pulsing remains hint at its previous greatness. The other half is nothing, the remains of a soul annihilated by the void laser your used, the faint emptiness of the void is all that remains in its place.“So strange.” Ayla starts poking you. “It’s like master is gone, but still here.”>Consume orb>Drop the spell, then consume>Save it for later>Other

You let your spell fade, much to Ayla’s delight.“You shouldn’t touch me when I’m like that, I’m still not sure what the effects are entirely.”“PSH! Its fine, its not dangerous at all.

Next time Hestia scans a void thingy, I want us to be data jacked in and watching the scan data in realtime limit her manipulation od the data as much as possible. She is obviously missing something, and since we can "perceive" void stuff we might be able to learn something.
>>42119594The way I see it, that void creature (if there really is one) was imprisoned by something akin to an actual god.Reggie is no god yet so dealing with it in any capacity is a big no-no.While I admit to being incredibly interested, my common sense is screaming "optional post-final-boss final boss" so I am a bit worried.
I think this is the count, updating sheets nowMage1 Mana increase2 Authority of hell5 Boost casting ability7 FamiliarVoid0 Increase whispers1 Lose mana0 Lose health0 Lower statistics0 Lower abilities1 Drain experience0 Drain stat points1 Increase mana1 Increase health5 Elemental connection4 Void connection
>>42119661What if we went void-form, data jacked, and watched her attempt to scan us.
>>42119675SweetOk now that that's done how do we want to speand our Exp?
>>42119697>Void.exe uploading. Execute? Y/Y
>>42119697I'm thinking we drop more scanners down the bottomless hole again, maybe with a goblin and an imp to see if they disappear again.
>>42119698I kinda want our combat to get a boost, in case something survives our laser.Cause we rely on that WAY too fucking hard.
>>42119712>Error, data not found>Compensating...
>>42119742You know, I've been saying for a while that all this focus on magic and the like isn't that great.If we ever get mana-leached or some shit we'll be in a world of hurt.
>>42119780It'll be fine, we have 10x gravity traininghow many people can say the same
>>42119804Strength/endurance, and active combat training are very different.
We should really improve food production
>>42119804Well, I mean, something with 100 strength slapping us will probably still hurt like a bitch.And what's more, a lot of shit out there can still fuck us up. Having a glaring physical weakness begs for our smarter enemies to just drop us in an anti-magic zone and then cast silence TM on us.Our DR and Regen are really what have kept us going so far. Avoiding damage in the first place should be priority.
>>42119675110expRegeneration: Rank 7 to Rank 874exp leftToughness: Rank 3 to Rank 70 exp leftLet's upgrade our defense.
>>42119869So we have Hestia design another compensating combat robot, which is projected to be combat capable at 100 times G
Research: Miniaturized Time-alteration device.When attached to an individual, they can alter time in a small bubble around themselves, usually enough to only fit themselves inside.Slowing time with this would give the individual, from the view of an outsider, extreme reflexes and speed. If we can manage to crank it up to the point where bullets look like they're standing still practically, we could probably fuckin meditate to regenerate mana in the middle of a freakin fight.
>>42119921I'm cool with this.Can't kill what you can't kill.
Right, I forgot to ask what your favorite element or pseudo element is.Toss some at me so I finish your ability gains before you all lock in on an exp plan.
>>42119921I'd like to wait on spending exp until the changes from the soul halves are done>>42119978Almighty
>>42119966That's a good idea.>>42119978Light, pure and simple.The revealer.If I can't pick Light (and therefore increase lazers and or manipulate sight and create illusions) I'll pick fire.
>>42120016Fire will probably be easy to pick up in hell, anon.
>>42119978KineticsEnergy n' vectors n' shit. With our 100 we'd rock at it.
>>42119991Right, I was waiting for that too, but it seemed like people wanted to vote on it beforehand.
>>42120027>>42120022Would gravity be a better option then?
>no one voting for the obvious element of TacosFucking plebes.
>>42120060we already have technology for that anon>>42119978I'll vote with >>42119991on almightysmt games are some of my all-time favs
>>42120073>tacos>not quesadillasIt's like I'm talking to a mortal incarnation of the very concept of idiocy
>>42120016Go ahead and pick anything.light, darkness, death, fire, water, earth, almighty, unholy, force, etcI'll roll with it and come up with something.
>>42120087>smtSuck my taint?
>>42120087what's Almighty?Also I know we have tech for it, but I imagine it'll help us ignore effects like a blackhole thrown at us, or if we throw one at whatever we hate.
>>42120131Shin-magmi-tenseiits a gameIts where the social link joke comes from
>>42120131shin megami tensei, you pleb>>42120136in the games its basically something that very fucking few things have resistance/immunity to, and it almost always deals a fuckton of damage. the better spells of the almighty category tend to target all the enemies around you, and are in fact the strongest spells in the games typically, excluding instant-death ones
>>42120213Violin element?What about Cello?
So a bunch of things, plus 2 for almightyand a 1v1 Mexican drug cartel battle ok.I think I can work with almighty.
I think this is enough power bloat for now yes?Soul consumption effectsMage half>Abilites increased: Quicken spell 2 -> 7, Multicast 3 -> 5New ability gainedFamiliar: Rank 1This ability allows you to bind one creature's soul per rank permanently to your own. You may recall a familiar to your current location for 5 mana this effect bypasses teleport or planar restrictions. In the event of your death all bound familiars will die. Higher ranks may have additional effects.Void halfNew abilities gainedVoid connection: Rank 1You have become connected to the infinite void, you now draw power from nothing restoring 1 health and 1 mana per turn. Higher ranks may have additional effects.Holy ki: Rank 1In consuming the void soul half somehow a bit of some divine being was passed along to you. This ability retypes all spells to inflict holy damage in addition to their standard effects. Higher ranks in this ability may have additional effects.Irresistible ki: Rank 1All spells or spell like abilities now bypass all forms of damage resistance. You gain 2% bypass per rank in this ability. Higher ranks may have additional effects.
>>42120677Fuckin noiceI'll write up an exp proposal then
Soul devourer -> 10 for maxgains next time we eat a soul (plus i'm interested in seeing what max rank in this does)Void connection -> 3 because health AND mana regeneration is fucking BEAST.
>>42120677What are we currently researching?I would like to support the mobile self-sufficient scanners and the personalized time alteration device that some anons mentioned earlier
>>42120677I'm cool withSoul devourer -> 10 Void connection -> 3
>>42120794I’ll add those in, otherwise nothing because you helped finish everything that was on the table.>>42120770Updating with this.
Learn the rest of whatever from our spellbook(s?) y/y?
>>42120897Oh, we finished ALL of it?What did the madblade examinations produce?And what sorta bio information did we gain? Any knowledge about goblins in there? Or the various other creatures down here?
>tfw people are building void power>tfw it just feeds the fucking thing>tfw throwing stuff into the pit is feeding it>tfw this void thing is going to absolutely fuck everything foreverI'm just getting this GG out of the way now.You've opened Pandora's box.
>>42120968The void is powerAND WE ARE THE VOID, ANON!THERE IS NO ESCAPE WHEN YOU ARE WHAT YOU FEAR.
>>42120988Fear? Who says I'm afraid?Nigga I want this nigga to show up.I'ma name his ass Charles, and he is going to kill us and unmake everything.Also, there are really only two options for hurting the void thing.Which is void stuff and almighty stuff.And whatever almighty power fucked him up before only put his ass in a box.So I'm not putting my stock in it.The problem is, the more void power we get, will that make Reg less him, and more something else?I'll have to find out in the next episode!
Research updates next threadGrimoire read, spell learnedCorrosion aura: Cost 100All matter with 100’ of the caster begins to corrode away as if being affected by powerful acids. This effect is particularly effective against organic materials. This effect lasts for three turns.
Since we breached the 100 intelligence gap and greatly increased our mental rolls...Should we try one last upgrade to Hestia to make her maximum overai?Really work her systems beyond what is possible, using the various tech shit we've figured out to do so?
I wonder what the hell lords thought when they saw us vanish a powerful demon and a demon-mage and a good chunk of hell in one go.
>>42121054I can dig it.
>>42121082Probably "...well fuck"
