You are Jareth, Disciple of Elshhu and heroic slayer of creepy lizard-cultists. Right now you are doing something you haven't done in a long time, namely meditating. You were never all that great at it even before you learned more entertaining methods of mana recovery, your mind just wanders too easily you suppose, but for your current purposes it's probably the best method of getting your thoughts in order.“What are you doing, Jareth?” Rihara's voice asks, a little husky and a lot more annoyed.“Meditating, need to figure something out.”“Seriously? After what you just did, you're just going to plop yourself down on the floor and start meditating? What the hell?”“That's right.”“I am so tempted to kick you right now.”“Don't kick a man when he's meditating, and eat your lunch, it's going to get cold,” you sigh, Rihara's retort fading away as you sink deeper into the well of power within you, visualized as swirling gold and purple, whatever that says about you.The reason for your sudden interest in meditation is that you have, in recent days, been a lot more active and energetic than you've been in months prior. Not only has this led to your body becoming more receptive to mana, expanding upon the channels flowing through your spirit, but the energy within you has also started to feel more... malleable for lack of a better term.Which means it's time to figure out how best to shape this newfound control over your mana into enhancing your abilities, especially now that you seem to have angered some demon-worshipping cult for some unknown reason.>Upgrades: http://pastebin.com/WpzKab6rI will begin voting for which upgrade you want in 20 minutes, in the meantime if you want to write-in any additional ideas or clarify anything, now is the time to do so.
>>42190297any chance of like a mana shield or mana infused toughness?
>>42190356Mana shield is a bit outside of Jareth's area of expertise, you'd want to invest in something like the mana blasts first so that he gets more used to external mana usage.The mana infused toughness though I can add to the list.
So I'm assuming agility would basically decrease DCs for dodging stuff and speed decrease them for getting in peoples faces and hitting stuff?
>>42190401Pretty much, they will also have non-combat applications for getting around.
>>42190297>Pressure PointsYou hear a voice in your head "Your heart will explode"
>>42190297>Enhanced Agilitylets get pressure points next
>>42190420So enhanced Agility will have a secondary application as a travel power, with parkour like stuff to get around the city?
>>42190459Sure can, if you're willing to spend some mana getting around.
>>42190459and more flexible mindblowing sex
>>42190463Can we use pressure points for sexual reasons also? You know, like super effective massages and the like?
>>42190420They're basically both necessary to invest in then, just a matter of which to start with. Agility seems the most advantageous to start with though.>>42190459They'd both increase our traveling ability logically.
>>42190495Yup, everything has its non-combat applications.
>Pressure PointsRoses are red.Violets are blue.Omae wa mo shinderu.
Okay, 20 minutes up, voting for an upgrade begins now.>http://pastebin.com/WpzKab6r
>>42190297Would some kind of danger sense be possible to cultivate with Jareth's abilities?
>>42190534Yup, start with the Enhanced Senses upgrade and build up to it from there.
>>42190531>Pressure PointsYour heart will explode!
>>42190531hold up, are any of these useful when not spending any mana? because passives a best.
>>42190566All of them aside from mana blasts, healing hands and pressure points have slight passive benefits which are greatly increased by spending mana.
>>42190579enhanced agility it is.we will be a sexual Jackie Chan.
Okay, Enhanced Agility wins.Writing.
>>42190297Wait, was thread 11 lost? I don't see it in the link and, of course that's the only one I missed.
>>42190672Nope, just me being dumb and forgetting to add it, it's on there now.
>not getting Enhanced SensesOh well, we could've been a bloodhound and sniffed out any enemy who got away, go full Daredevil, but that cane come later.I assume Enhanced Strength+Agility+Resistance+Speed+Senses+Pressure Points+Mana Blast would basically make Jareth Goomonryong, or at least his apprentice tier(see The Breaker for more info, has some decent ideas since it's about enhancing bodies with Ki), breaking arms without touching them? Can strength+Speed+Blast+Resistance be combined to break steel armor with a single punch and come out unscathed?
You don't know how long you were sat there for, reshaping and channelling your mana before you had it just the way you wanted, but by the time you open your eyes and peer out the grimy window the sun is high overhead, so a couple of hours at least. Rihara is nowhere to be seen, so you hop to your feet, stretching and twisting, your body feeling strangely light and flexible, bending and twisting just a little more than you expect it to. You suppose you'll get used to it after a while.Shaking off after your stretches, you figure you may as well put your newfound abilities to the test, and with a grin, you hop up, twisting your body back in midair to land on your palms. Pushing up off of your palms, you leave the floor once more, hitting the wall of the small chamber with your feet, knees bending as you spring off of the cheap wallpaper, once again landing back in the centre of the room on your hands.The door opens, Rihara stepping inside, raising an eyebrow as she looks down at you smiling up at her from your handstand.“What're you doing?”“Not much, just practicing, care to join me?”“I'll pass, so this means you're done meditating then?” your sister asks, her tone strangely level.“All done, can't you tell from this inner peace I'm radiating?”(cont)
>>42190917“Then in that case...” she grins, lunging forward and seizing you around the middle, pulling you up from where you're balanced.“This is for ignoring me, you dick,” she laughs, flipping you over and tossing you to the ground. It wouldn't have been a hard drop, since she's aiming you towards the ratty rug in the middle of the floor, but she has underestimated your new skills, and you simply twist midair and land comfortably once more on your hands.“Nice try, Rihara, but you'll have to do better than that if you want to get your vengeance on me,” you smirk, flipping back over onto your feet.“Fine, but I'm still a little mad at you,” she frowns, flopping down onto the edge of the bed.“The sooner you come to term with your feelings and cast off the oppressive shackles of sexual stigma placed upon you by a repressed society, the happier you'll be. That's some religious guidance from a priest of Elshhu, free of charge,” you shrug, stretching again.“That was a very flowery way of saying we should fuck.”“I prefer erudite to flowery, but yes.”>Go try out your new skills in a more open area (5 mana)>Hang out with your dear sister>Go check out the Elshhuan temple, it's been a while>Other (write-in)
>>42190840Both of those things you said are perfectly doable, yes.
>>42190929>>Go check out the Elshhuan temple, it's been a whileI'm curious about what it actually looks like. I have a feeling that, due to clever statue designs, the entrance to the temple is likely literally between the legs of our goddess.
>>42190929>>Hang out with your dear sister
>>42190929>Go try out your new skills in a more open area (5 mana)
>>42190929>Hang out with your dear sister
>>42190929>Go check out the Elshhuan temple, it's been a while
Hanging out with Rihara wins.Writing.
We should take our sister to the temple. Show her around.
You glance over at Rihara, she doesn't look too annoyed honestly, but she's pouting a little, and you know your sister well enough to know that she's the type to bottle up and sulk when it comes to problems she can't just fight her way out of.“Alright, how about this, we've been running around doing all kinds of stuff since our tearful reunion, so today it can be just you and me out enjoying the town,” you smile, finishing your stretching and sitting down on the edge of the bed next to her.“Oh yeah, what did you have in mind?”“No idea, what're you in the mood for? We could go hit the taverns and clubs, although it might be a bit early for that. We could check out the arena over in The Spiral, if you're in the mood to watch some competition. How about the Elshhuan Temple, you ever been there? Something tells me you'd like it. Or I guess we could just go for a wander around and see what's going on out there.”“Eh, that all sounds alright, I'll leave it up to you, but if the first place you take me is a sex club I'm punching you in the dick,” Rihara smirks, hopping up off of the bed.“Does the temple count as a sex club to you?”“Almost, but I think I can forgive you for that one.”>Hit the taverns and clubs, 2pm isn't too early to start drinking, right?>Go check out the Arena, see what's going on>Visit the Elshhuan Temple>Eh, just go for a wander, see what happens
>>42191176>Visit the Elshhuan Temple
>>42191176>Go check out the Arena, see what's going on
>>42191176>>Visit the Elshhuan Temple
Off to the temple you go.Writing.
>>42190942How about using Mana Blast during a "normal" punch to have the force pass through the armor/skin/etc. and hit just the bone/organ/whatever we want to hit? Like when those martial artists punch a row of glass bottles and only break the one in the middle or whatever, if that's even a thing.
>>42191453You couldn't do that with basic mana blast, but it's something you could build up to.
“Temple it is then, I think you'll like the priestess there, she's a class act,” you grin.“I shudder to think what you consider a class act,” Rihara chuckles as you walk over to the door, stepping out into the corridor and closing it behind your sister.Gurby must be in the back somewhere, because you don't see him on your way out, so you head out onto the street. With the nice weather, people are out in force on the streets, which around here means a whole lot of gangers and thugs. Fortunately you've cracked enough heads by now that none of them start any trouble with the two of you, and you're mostly ignored on your way out to the Bridgeway.“Any word about the Sunbringers?” Rihara asks, a question which you suspect means 'any word about mom'.“Not really, I've been keeping out of their way since I left.”“Yeah, me too. Haven't even gone near Radiant Square, hell, haven't gone near that whole district,” your sister sighs, as the two of you push past a slow moving gaggle of Priests of Pomurius, clanking along in their silver chains.“Ran into Juliana a little while ago though.”“That must've been fun, how was she?”“Still hot, still hates me. Some higher ranked Sunbringer yanked on her collar before she could start tearing up the street though,” you smirk, the two of you breaking off from the Bridgeway towards the imaginately named Temple Way.“That girl needs a good dicking, or twenty, can't believe she's still holding a grudge after all this time.”“I don't think it's a dicking she's lusting after, that's part of the problem,” you chuckle, stepping out onto Temple Way.(cont)
>>42191938“Lamascki, Pomurius, Baramtir, Quey Jal... I don't even recognize that one,” Rihara mumbles as you wander past the rows of grandiose structures decked out with the symbols of the great city's most affluent and popular deities.“It's Jiten, Snow Country god. All about honor and duty to your superiors.”“Sounds lame, hard to believe that took off.”“Snow Country merchants give discount rates to Jitenites, the temple was part of some big trade deal or something.”“Fascinating, so where't he Elshhuan Temple, I don't see a building with a big pair of tits carved into the front,” Rihara snorts.“We don't get one on the main Way, sadly,” you shrug, leading Rihara down a smaller side street.“Welcome to Prayer Alley, a nice quiet out of the way location for the less respectable deities,” you grin, holding out your arms in a dramatic gesture as you lead Rihara down the narrow street.While Temple Way had the scent of fresh flowers and expensive incense, crisp scents purified by ongoing latent magics woven into the stone itself, Prayer Alley has quite a different feel to it. The scents and sounds are heady, the heavy incense mingling with the scent of burning drugs and strange powders. You remember feeling drunk as hell the first few times you came here, before you got used to the ever-present haze. The sounds of chanting and prayer from Temple Way giving way to more energetic shouts and mantras, and the sounds of sex and combat drifting up from the depths of the buildings. Hawkers and salesmen are peddling a thousand different good luck charms, tacky talismans and icons on every bit of street they haven't been cleared off from, and you watch some Grimandian Priest involved in a shouting match with a peddler who'd set up a stall in such a way that it was blocking the doorway to the temple, a shouting match which ends with the hulking priest breaking the stall by putting the unfortunate peddler straight through it.(cont)
>>42191952“Damn, hard to believe this place is just off Temple Way,” Rihara smirks, stepping aside to let a priestess of Vjapa the Pure by, the shaven-headed priestess' hands clasped tight as she mumbles her chant, clad in nothing more than religious bodypaint.“Believe me, if the temples on the main way could move us on, they would, but even with all their money and influence they're reluctant to offend two dozen deities,” you shrug.“Just as well, this is the kind of religion I can get behind,” your sister grins, the two of you putting your hands in your pockets as you pass the temple of Lotium, keeping any of the young initiates milling around outside from making off with any of your gold.“Well, here we are, the Temple of Elshhu, it's not much, but it could be worse, some gods don't get more than a street-side shrine,” you explain, gesturing to the entrance way to the temple, the open doors flanked by carvings of people of all races and cultures engaged in all manner of lewdness.“This is pretty much exactly what I expected,” Rihara smiles, as the two of you step inside.The inside, while hardly wealthy, is undoubtedly comfortable, soft cushions, thick carpets, wall hangings depicting Elshhu's many sexual escapades, all a little stained, although Deva does her best to keep them as clean as possible. Right now, the priestess is nowhere to be seen, maybe out back somewhere.>Wait around, explain some of the wall hangings and such to Rihara>Call out for Deva>Eh, you're a priest, just go in back and look for her
>>42191959>Eh, you're a priest, just go in back and look for her

>>42191959>>Call out for DevaQuestion for you warlord, can an Elshua priest cure peoples STDs with there holy dickings?
>>42192013With the correct powers, yes, but not naturally.You cannot however catch an STD as long as you have at least 1 mana in your system.
>>42191959>>>Wait around, explain some of the wall hangings and such to RiharaIf Deva doesn't turn up once we finish explaining our favorite wall hangings to Rihara, we'll go in the back and look for her.

>>42191959Basically these >>42192035 >>42192052
You glance over at Rihara, your sister admiring one of the raciest wall hangings.“That one's from the time Elshhu disguised herself as Ifumia of Sukal, a travelling storyteller.”Rihara raises an eyebrow as she stares at the images, tapping her chin with a finger.“Must be hard to tell stories when you've got a mouthful of dick.”“That bit came later, dumbass, let me finish the story,” you reply, give your smirking sister a light jab in the side with your elbow.Holding up her hands, Rihara smiles silently as you continue.“Ifumia of Sukal came to the fief of Lord Cardrys, a man engaged in an ongoing struggle with his neighbour Lord Brynt. While the king had forbidden the two from letting their conflict lead to all-out warfare, the two still could not get along, they resorted to petty thefts and vandalism, but it was obvious to all involved that sooner or later one of the two would ignore the king's command and blood would be shed.”Leaning back against the wall, you look up at the wall hanging to your side.“Ifumia went before both lords, first Lord Cardrys, then Lord Brynt, to tell stories, to earn the trust of the two lords, and coax from them the reasons behind their conflict. The reason, as it turned out, was a dissatisfaction both men shared. Both men suspected their wives of lusting for the other, and both found their wives to be distant and cold.”“I think I can see where this is going, but can I just get the quick version,” Rihara sighs, brushing some hair from her face.(cont)
>>42192757“It's a tragedy to think that my own sister can't appreciate a good story in its entirety, but fine. Short version is, Ifumia lured both men to a barn with promises of a midnight tryst, and both the men's wives to the barn with promises of a tryst with the other's husband an hour later. The two lords were not happy to encounter each other in the barn, but Ifumia's seduction quickly made them forget their conflict and come together in the spirit of friendship to enjoy the disguised goddess. Needless to say their wives were rather surprised to turn up an hour later and discover their husbands plowing the travelling storyteller together,” you explain, pushing off from the wall and walking over to your sister.“Long story short, everyone fucked, Ifumia, Lord Cardrys, Lord Brynt, their two wives, they all just wound up in one big fuckpile, and as a result bloodshed was averted as the two couples learned to love one another.”“That was a beautiful telling, Jareth,” a familiar voice announces, Deva giving a somewhat sarcastic clap as you turn.“Sadly my dear sister here lacks the patience for the full version,” you shrug, walking over to grinning priestess as she holds out her arms, standing up on tiptoes to bring you into a warm hug and a kiss on the cheek.She's the same as ever, all strawberry blonde curls and curves, decked out in the light, airy, easy to remove and figure-hugging robes preferred by Elshhuans during rituals.“It's been a while. I'd begun to worry you'd forgotten the way,” Deva smiles, releasing you from the hug as she steps back.“Yeah, things have been kind of crazy recently.”“Really? Artor and Senta didn't mention anything when they stopped by,” Deva frowns, cocking her head a little, her curly hair bouncing at the motion.Your eyes widen as your thoughts grind to a halt. Those dicks, they were this close by all this time?(cont)
>>42192776“Wait what, they were here?”“A couple of days ago. Congratulations on finishing your training by the way, I knew you could do it,” Deva beams, the shorter woman standing up on tiptoes to pat you on the shoulder.“I put in a lot of long, hard hours of training, but it all paid off in the end,” you nod, a mock look of seriousness across your features.“Well, they said they were going to let you go do your own thing, and they were off to...um... Isthima for a while, I think they said.”You groan, face in your palm. They've left the city, gone to the islands out east, no way you're getting your money back now.“Cheer up Jareth, everyone has to step out from the shadow of their elders someday,” Deva smiles, you suppose your teachers forgot to mention to her the bit where they robbed you.“Anyway, I see you've brought your dear sister, who is every bit as beautiful as I'd imagined,” the priestess continues, turning to your sister and taking her hand.“Oh, Jareth mentioned me?” Rihara grins, her eyes wandering from Deva's smiling face down to the impressive cleavage of her robes.“Many times, I can tell your brother is very fond of you. He was ever so worried, even asked me to keep an eye out for you, but sadly no-one I asked had seen you,” Deva sighs, an apologetic smile on her lips.“Yeah, I was... kinda hard to reach, I guess.”You raise an eyebrow, aside from her time with the Sisterhood, you really don't know how Rihara spent the past few years come to think of it. It's weird of her to be so evasive though, perhaps you should bug her about it later.“Well, you're here now, and that's all that matters. So, would the two of you care to come out to the back? I have drink, and cake, and comfortable chairs.”>We were just checking in>Sure, we can stick around for a while
>>42192796>Sure, we can stick around for a whileRefreshments!
>>42192796Leave it to Rihara, this day is about hanging out, after all.
>>42192796>Sure, we can stick around for a while
Mention the idea if our dwarf pet maybe taking up the task of decorating the church with stone carving. If she's onboard and we get crafting tools, we can get her out of the red sisterhood and into doing her hobby for fun again, a blank canvas for her to work on
>>42193101She might enjoy the change of pace from the sisterhood to Elshhu.
“Want to stick around for a bit? This is your day,” you smile, turning to your sister.“Sure, sounds like fun,” Rihara grins, drawing her eyes up from Deva's chest to look over at you.“Wonderful, come on through and I'll show you what I've got on offer,” the priestess smiles, turning and heading for the door beside the altar as the two of you admire the way the robe clings to her impressive backside.“You know, she's a priestess of Elshhu, if you want to fuck just ask her,” you whisper, wrapping an arm around Rihara's shoulders as you lead her to the door.“Maybe I will, but since I've had time to work out some of that frustration I was dealing with after leaving the sisterhood, I'm trying not to act like quite such a sexual predator anymore, you know,” she sighs, leaning into you as the two of you squeeze through the doorway.“Good to know, I wouldn't want my beloved sibling to wind up a convicted rapist,” you smirk, as Deva leads you through into her chambers out the back, gesturing to a plush couch up against one wall.“Make yourselves comfortable, I'll go get you something. Um, let's see, I have tea, cinnamon tea, coffee, dwarven coffee, orcish coffee...”You wince, you remember your one encounter with orcish coffee, never again, at least not without mana to burn on healing afterwards.“...or maybe something a little stronger if you're in the mood for it, one of the temple's regular worshippers came by and dropped off a bottle of some sort of caramel liquor earlier.”“Dwarven coffee, thanks,” Rihara replies, as you request a regular coffee.“Okay,” Deva chirps, disappearing out into her kitchen.(cont)
Perhaps Deva might assist to sow the seed of freedom of sexual stigmas regarding incest in our sister's mind.
>>42193171You mean that she'd get to be on top?
>>42193440“By the way Deva, you need any carving work done here? I know a girl looking for a change in her life, mentioned she was something of a stonecarver.”“Well, I could do, the pillars could certainly do with touching up once we get the structural work done. I'm afraid a troll I was teaching good interspecies positions to got a bit overexcitable last week. Tell her to come over and we'll talk it out,” she calls from the back.“Hilda?” Rihara asks, glancing over.“Yeah, she really doesn't feel like a good fit for the Sisterhood.”“You mean because she's not a fucking psycho, yeah, I can see that,” your sister snorts, as Deva leans around the door.“Sugar? Quith?”“Quith?” your sister asks, raising an eyebrow.“It's lovely, adds a spicy flavor, and really warms you up,” Deva beams.“By 'warms you up' she means it's a mild aphrodisiac,” you smirk, as the priestess nods in agreement.“You just offer aphrodisiacs to people in their drinks?”“Sure, a lot of people who come here the first time are kind of nervous, it helps them relax,” Deva explains.“You're having it?”“I sure am, never go without it,” the priestess smiles.Rihara frowns, glancing over at you.“It's not all that strong,” you reply with a shrug.She seems unsure, you suppose you could give your dear sister some advice, or just leave her to make her mind up.>Go for it.>Give it a miss this time>Let her decide
>>42193466>Let her decideIts not the biggest of deals, besides the amount of hormones running through your average Elshuan priest could probably kill a normal person.
>>42193466>Go for it.It's mild, Rihara's not a wimp. She'll be fine.
>>42193466>>Give it a miss this timeWe're planning to visit some other places afterwards, maybe some other time.She doesn't seem comfortable with the idea, wouldn't want her to do it out of feeling pressured.
>>42193466>>Let her decide
>>42193466>Go for it.
>>42193466>Let her decide
Well, let her decide is probably just equivalent to give it a miss, but encouraging her to take an aphrodisiac when we've acknowledged we're trying to fuck her seems kind of sleazy in a not hot way.
>>42193466"Rihara, free will is an illusion of the overactive mind. Drink the slut-juice."
“Up to you,” you shrug.There's a long pause before Rihara shakes her head.“None for me, I'll just have it as it is.”“Same,” you reply, Elshhu knows you've never needed any herbal assistance to get in the mood.Deva disappears back into the kitchen, emerging a little while later with three gently steaming mugs and a place of assorted cakes. Placing the plate and mugs down on a low table, she nudges me over, squeezing in on the couch next to me, leaving me comfortably placed between her and Rihara.“So, what're you two up to these days?” she asks, picking up her mug and blowing on it, the mingling scent of tea and quith tickling my nostrils as the steam drifts by.“I'm an adventurer now, you know, got a party and everything. Sometimes I let Rihara be my assistant,” you grin, earning a punch on the shoulder from your sister, not that she bothers to stop stuffing cake into her mouth to say anything.“That does sound exciting, not that I think I'd be cut out for it, I enjoy my comforts too much to go running around in dungeons,” Deva smiles, sipping her tea, a flush creeping into her cheeks as the quith takes effect.“It's alright, I guess, sure beats what I was doing before,” Rihara adds, gulping down the last of the cake.“No need to be shy, I can tell how much you enjoy spending time together,” Deva beams, leaning over to pat Rihara on the knee, inadvertently(?) balancing her other hand against your crotch as she does so.(cont)
>>42194198“She's got a bit of an obsession about me, it's true,” you grin, Rihara frowning as she goes for another cake, she's going to have devoured the whole plate before long at this rate.“She's probably just worried about the sort of trouble you'd get into without her around to look after you. You do have a knack for it,” Deva giggles, as her fingertips start to brush against your shaft through your trousers, sweeping aside all questions of whether this is inadvertant.“Damn right, I don't know how he lived the past few years without me there watching his back,” Rihara smirks, oblivious to Deva's activities as the two of them enjoy a good laugh at your expense.“He's always rushing head-first into everything, this one is. Back when he was first with Artor and Senta, he almost got himself smited for it, trying to seduce the assistant of the Quey Jalian high priest.”“He was working the poor girl to the bone, she deserved some fun, and how was I supposed to know that she was his niece,” you shrug, as the conversation quickly turns towards your past misadventures, Deva and Rihara chattering away as Deva's hand slips inside your pants, warm fingers wrapping around you.Just as things are starting to get good however, you hear a voice echoing from out the front of the temple, Deva giving a puffy-cheeked little frown.“Oh darn, no-one visits all day and then they pick now to turn up. Sorry, this won't take long,” she sighs, her hand slipping out from your pants as she starts to rise.>Let her go see whoever it is>You're a priest too, leave her to chat with Rihara while you deal with it
>>42194198>tickling my nostrilsyour Freud is showing, QM.
>>42194216>>You're a priest too, leave her to chat with Rihara while you deal with it
>>42194216>Well, we are a man of the clothSpeak to Sis, we can deal with the devoted and she can spend some time with the cougar here. She did want to make a pass afterall.
>>42194216>You're a priest too, leave her to chat with Rihara while you deal with it
The advantage here is if we Shadowrunned correctly the snake cult are targeting the temple and its worshippers instead of just us
>>42194229You caught me, my fetish is spicy tea.
>>42194216>Let her go see whoever it isAsk RIhara for help
>>42194216>>Let her go see whoever it is
>>42194216>Leave Rihara to her cake, accompany Deva on her priestly dutiesgot a bad feeling about this
>>42194216Is >>42194402 an option, Lordy? If so if so, I'm voting for it, Rihara's a big girl, she can handle a couple minutes on her own, and we can get in some more casual lewdness with Deva less subtly without our sister there.
Okay, looks like you're going to go check out the front.
>>42194425Sorry anon, just too late.
>>42194429I have a feeling Deva would be more apt at dealing with nonhostile visitors though, can't we have her accompany us?
>>42194463it was not voted for and MC can handle nonhostile vistors well
>>42194463Have you forgotten we're not actually just a punch things guy?
>>42194573I never said we were.>>42194507I never said he can't.
>>42194463We can seduce, therefore we can be diplomatic.
>>42194573We've put a fair amount of our skill points into punching, whereas she seems to have put all her skill points into CHA.
>>42194601This thread is the first time we've put points into anything.We can use our powers to fight or to charm. We're now more effective at using our powers to jump around like a crazy person.
“I can go deal with it, I'm a full-fledged priest now after all,” you smile, gulping down the rest of your coffee as you pick yourself up.“Thanks Jareth, if it's anything major you can come get me,” Deva smiles, as you leave the two to no doubt continue talking about your mishaps.Pushing the door open you damn near collide with a man who was obviously about to push his way through into the back. He's a skinny man, no more than 18 or 19 you'd guess, just a little shorter than you, dressed in reasonably pricey clothes, perhaps a mid-ranked guildsman or at least the relative of one, a bunch of red flowers clutched in his hands.He steps back with a sharp frown, towards the far larger man behind him, a hulking trollkin, patches of blue along his cheeks and up his bare arms, a pair of great curling horns poking out of his forehead. The trollkin says nothing as he catches the smaller man, his features stony and flat.“What? Who're you? Where's Deva?” the skinny man snaps, squinting at you.“Deva's busy with something out back, I'm helping out for today. Something I can help you with?” you smile, ignoring the sharp tone for now as your eyes drift from the skinny man up to who you suspect is his bodyguard.“I need to see Deva, it's important.”“Well, you might be waiting a while, but I am also a fully qualified priest of Elshhu if you have something you want to discuss,” you reply, glancing down at the flowers. You suppose he must be here to give them to her, although his sharp tone seems rather at odds with that.Tapping his foot, the man mutters something under his breath, glaring at you.“It won't take long, I'm just here to give these to her, I won't interrupt whatever she's doing,” he frowns, stepping forwards as if to push past you.>Let him through>Tell him to wait here>Tell him you'll pass the flowers on to her>Suggest he comes back later>Tell him to fuck off
>>42194696>Tell him to wait here
>>42194696>Tell him you'll pass the flowers on to her
>>42194696>Offer to pass the flowers to her, if he doesn't accept then tell him to wait here.
>>42194696>>Tell him to wait hereAw, poor dude I think he is in love with Deva.
>>42194762I doubt it, he seems far too aggressive for that, and he came with an impressive bodyguard.Seems more like the flowers are just an excuse, especially since he can't give them to her while "not interrupting whatever she's doing" it looks to me like he's planning something bad, possibly magical.
>>42194793Bring flowers for woman you have some kind of attraction to, some dude walks out. I think most people would be a little uncomfortable at the very least. considering Devas occupation he's actually more likely to be jealous.
>>42194793Erm, maybe but he doesn't really have any reason to bring flowers to fool us. Unless he was somehow aware we were there which is unlikely...Most likely, he was going to say he loved her and force her to accept his feelings with the help of his bodyguard.
Telling him to wait here wins.Writing.
>>42194862She's practically literally a whore who works for free.He has no reason to be surprised.>>42194883If he is targeting Elshhuans, it could have been in case we or someone else was there.
>>42194940People are surprisingly stupid when i comes to developing an attraction to sex workers, like I said people actually get very jealous, because being capable of rational thought does not mean you will use it when you catch the feels for your favourite whore.
>>42195013Well, at the high end it is more like having a paid mistress than looking through the catalog at what flavor you want to fuck today.
“Alright, wait here, I'll go see if Deva's free to come see you,” you reply, holding up a hand.“Great, thanks,” he nods, something vaguely resembling a smile passing across his features as you step back through the door, closing it behind you.Wandering back down the corridor, you hear the voices of Deva and Rihara drifting through from Deva's quarters.“Well, you're on birth control, aren't you?”“Sure, isn't everyone?”“and the two of you obviously care about each other a lot.”“Yeah, but, I don't know if I care about him in THAT way.”“Oh?”“I mean, he's my brother, it would be really weird.”“You keep saying that, but you still haven't said why, sweetie.”“I dunno, it's just... I dunno.”“I don't think the problem is a lack of attraction, I think it's because you're afraid of-”You head a knock on the door behind you, the man's voice echoing down the corridor.“Have you asked her yet, hello?”Sighing, you push open the door, the conversation cutting off abruptly.“Did you need some help out front?” Deva asks, smiling.“Some guy looking for you, brought flowers and a big trollkin,” you reply.Deva sighs, rubbing her fingertips against her brow.“While flowers and big trollkin are two things I like a lot, it sounds like you just had an encounter with Ormin. He's... something of a fan of mine, I suppose one could say.”“You want me to get rid of him?”“No, no, I'll deal with it. He's harmless, just pushy, you relax and have some cake,” Deva smiles, picking herself up from the couch and smoothing down her robe.>Stay with Rihara>Loiter behind the door while she deals with it>Go out there with her
>>42195123>>Loiter behind the door while she deals with it
>>42194904Get his name!
>>42195123>Loiter behind the door while she deals with it
>>42195123>Loiter Well, its only a crime if you arnt working there...
>>42195123>>Loiter behind the door while she deals with itWe can step in if need be, do the old "Need any help?" as if we hadn't been listening in on their conversation the whole time.
>>42195123>Stay with Rihara
>>42195123Well, if we loiter at least tell her we will be there.Arrange a safewo-code word
>>42195123>>Go out there with herYeah, no, I don't trust him to listen to her.
RIP Golem Knight Quest F
You frown, while she said he was harmless, you're less convinced, he seemed kind of twitchy to you. Deva heads off out of the room as Rihara glances up at you questioningly, a slight blush on her cheeks for reasons that you most certainly did not overhear from outside the door.“Just going to keep an eye on her,” you explain, waiting until Deva has reached the far door before following her out.Ormin's tone sounds completely different from the harsh one he greeted you with, he sounds positively excitable.“...oh, and I brought you these, but, then there was that other fellow and-”“Oh yes, he's another priest, he agreed to help out a bit while I was dealing with some other work,” Deva cuts in, her tone calm and soothing.“Ah, I see, well, nevermind, I'm just glad I could see you. Are you well, I hope you aren't working too hard, you look tired.”“Oh you know me, happy and healthy as ever.”“Right, right, well that's good. Have you, have you thought any more about my offer?”“I have, and while I'm very flattered, I don't really think it would be possible, this temple needs me to look after it.”“Well what about that other guy, couldn't he take over the temple?”“I'm afraid not, like most of my religion he's a bit flighty to deal with the day to day duties,” she chuckles softly.“Surely there must be someone who could take over from you.”“I'm sorry Ormin, I'm flattered, really I am, but I really can't.”“You can't, you can't, of course you can,” he snaps, his voice regaining the harsh tone from before.“Ormin...”“We could go right now, this second, nothing's stopping you except this rundown dump,” he snarls, sounds like he's getting very agitated, though Deva's voice still sounds as calm as ever.>Step in>Leave it to Deva for a bit longer
>>42195392Sorry anon, I really cannot run three quests at once with my schedule, I was burning myself out.GKQ will return someday, but not until I have more free time.
>>42195542>Leave it to Deva for a bit longer
>>42195542>Leave it to Deva for a bit longerLet's hope diplomacy wokds and wait until we really need to. Though I wouldn't be surprised if Deva can handle herself.
>>42195542She's trained in combat too right? I remember you said it the augmented martial arts was standard.
>>42195602Yes, it's part of Elshhuan training, Elshhu likes her followers to train and care for their bodies.
>>42195639>Leave it to Deva for a bit longerThen
Going to be a slight delay before the next post, I'll be back soon.
>>42195542>>Leave it to Deva for a bit longerShe's a priest like us, she must know how to calm people down.
>>42195542>Leave it to Deva for a bit longerit's not like she doesn't know we're here. we'll step in when she clearly needs us to.no need for any macho crap.
>>42196092>it's not like she doesn't know we're hereShe doesn't, we didn't tell her we would be behind the door.
Back and writing.
>>42196308How much longer are you running for, Lordy? School is starting up again so I might have to leave before you finish to wake up on time.
>>42196513I dunno, 3-5 hours maybe.
Deva knows what she's doing, and despite her appearance, you know she's more than capable of looking after herself. Still, you feel your muscles tensing, ready to spring out and punch some faces if the need for macho bullshit presents itself.“Enough Ormin, I love this temple, I built it up from damn near nothing, and I will not have it insulted,” Deva replies, her voice calm, but lacking the usual light playfulness to it.“I-”“Thank you for the flowers, however my mind is made up, this is where I belong. If you require religious guidance, you are always welcome, but for today I'm going to have to ask you to leave.”“But-”“Goodbye, Ormin.”“S-sorry,” Ormin mumbles, as you listen to two sets of footsteps walking away, back outside the temple.You lean back against the wall, Deva sighing as she opens it.“You've gotten awfully good at eavesdropping.”“Please, you've known I was there both times,” you smirk, as she steps through the door, shutting it behind her.“Of course, there's no secrets from me in this place. Thank you for looking out for me, and thank you for not bursting out too, I would imagine that might have been enough to push poor Ormin into doing something foolish.”“You sure you're okay with him?”“Nothing I haven't dealt with before, sadly some people have trouble understanding that sleeping with them in my religious capacity does not mean I want them to take me away from all this, I happen to enjoy all this,” Deva chuckles, wrapping an arm around your waist as the two of you head back to her quarters.“I know you do, you perverted little minx,” you smirk, the two of you stepping back into the room.(cont)
>>42196682“With time, I think Ormin can work through his issues, and then I think he could make someone very happy, just... not me. He's actually a remarkably competent lover when he's not letting anxiety get the best of him.”“I'll take your word for it.”“Well, enough about him, what are you two going to do now?”You didn't miss the tone in her voice as she says that, her arm still around your waist.>Well, we could stay a little while longer>Actually, I think Rihara had a question for you>We should get going
>>42196699>Actually, I think Rihara had a question for you
>>42196699>Well, we could stay a little while longer
>>42196682>S-sorryPoor guy must suck being a sperg without the internet.
>>42196699>>Actually, I think Rihara had a question for youEither she joins the clergy too, or gets laid. Either way would work.
>>42196699>>We should get going
>>42196724>>42196757>>42196768>>42196779>>42196791You realize this is encouraging them to lez out, right?>>42196827>she joins the clergyPFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFT
>>42196851Yes? and? It's practically our job to encourage it.
>>42196851Hey, gotta make her even more relaxed with sexuality. Deva is a good influence on her.
>>42196851>>42196851Yeah because them lezzing out totally wouldn't ever lead to a threesome.
>>42196879Just making sure you're aware.And I personally would think it's more our job to encourage that she abandon her stigma about incest.>>42196887I personally think she could help more in that regard by talking as a sort of counseling and a friend, than a lover, considering the remarkable progress she made while we were dealing with Ormin, but fair enough, it's for you to decide for yourself.>>42196912Not right now, it wouldn't, if we're being realistic.The threesome option is the "stay a little while longer" option, this is leaving Rihara to have some one on one with Deva, if I'm reading things right.
>>42196945Pretty sure it's letting them continue that convo from before anon. Y'know the one about incest being totally cool and she should fuck us if she wants to.
>>42197094That was a conversation in private though that stopped the moment we walked in.
>>42197239Hence actually I'm pretty sure she has something to ask you rather than sticking around.
>>42197290No, the thing she has to ask her is if she's down to fuck, see >>42193440>If you want to fuck just ask her>Maybe I will
>>42197526Either way she'll be way more likely to get her to be down for "sibling affection" than us sticking around. She almost managed it in like 30 seconds.
>>42197572It's almost like you just want to fuck Rihara and don't want to spend time with her normally.
“Hmm, vaguely, it's been a while,” Deva hums, kneeling down in front of Rihara, her hands gently parting your sibling's legs, exposing her tidy slit.She starts kissing her way up Rihara's thigh from the knee, strawberry blonde curls tickling the smooth skin as your sister's breath starts to quicken, Deva occasionally pausing a little longer to suck and nip at the flesh, provoking a gasp from Rihara every time. She's talented as ever, and even before she reaches Rihara's slit she has your sister moaning and writhing in her seat.Rihara's head flops back as Deva reaches her prize, a lusty moan escaping her lips, sadly the act is mostly obscured from you by Deva's hair, though the wet licking and sucking sounds coupled with the gasps of your sibling as she grinds her hips against the priestess' face paints a pretty good picture.You watch the scene for quite some time, leaning back against the wall as you admire your sister's flushed features, her heaving chest and smooth skin. There's no denying she's a beauty, as expected of your twin, and it's nice to see her enjoying herself without trying too hard. Her eyes flutter open, meeting your gaze, heavy with lust, her lips parting as if to speak before her words become lost, caught up in the wave of her climax as she bucks against Deva's attentions, back arched, giving out a throaty moan as she rides out the sensations.Deva picks herself up, a cheery smile on her now wet face, brushing strands of sweat-soaked hair aside.“Tastes as good as I expected, and there's certainly a similarity. I would ask if you enjoyed the show, but I can see you did from here,” she giggles, glancing down at the noticeable sign of your interest straining against your pants.(cont)
>>42197700does pillow talk while basking in the afterglow count?
>>42197700I want to get past the awkward stage.
>>42197737“That was, that was something...” Rihara gasps, resting her arms on her knees as she catches her breath.“Glad you liked it, not to brag, but I'm pretty confident in my abilities,” Deva giggles, as she picks up her robe off the floor.“Didn't you want me to...” Rihara starts, but the priestess shakes her head, cutting her off.“Some other time, sweetie. I do actually have some work to do, and you should go enjoy the rest of your day with your brother.”“Fine, guess I'll come see you some other time for another consultation,” your sister smirks, as she starts to pull her own clothes back on, much of her earlier awkwardness gone.“I'll be looking forward to it, and don't you be a stranger either Jareth, I always did enjoy your visits,” Deva giggles, showing the two of you to the door.You step out, your sister following, heading back to the front of the temple. As you go to leave, Deva lays a hand on Rihara's shoulder, leaning in close to whisper something in her ear. You can't make it out, but whatever it was had quite the effect on your sister, who gulps audibly, biting her lip and looking away.Deva beams at the two of you, patting Rihara on the shoulder and waving as you step outside.“So, where to now?”>Tavern, time to drink>Arena, check out some of the matches>Go wandering, look for something fun to do>Other (write-in)
>>42197758>>Arena, check out some of the matches
Did you skip a post?
>>42197758>Arena, check out some of the matches
>>42197758>ArenaLet's talk to her about her time after she left mom's order
>>42197784I also thought this.
>>42197825I'm pretty sure you did, unless Deva just started eating Rihara out without Rihara ven asking her to do something lewd with her.
>>42197784>>42197889Oh shit, you're right, my bad.
“Actually, I think Rihara had a question for you,” you grin, Rihara turning a little red in the cheeks as you put her on the spot.“Oh? I already answered some of your questions earlier, so don't be shy,” Deva smiles up at her, Rihara freezing with a cake halfway to her mouth.“No, I din't really, I was just-”After how blatant Rihara has been in the past, it's kind of funny to watch her getting flustered, you suppose that now that her frustration from her Sisterhood days has faded, she really is a little less predatory. It's kind of adorable to watch.“Well if you won't tell me, how about I try guessing,” Deva smiles, tugging at a knot on the shoulder of the robes, the whole thing coming away in one smooth motion, as Elshhuan robes were designed to do.“Are all you Elshhuans like this,” Rihara smiles, giving a nervous laugh as Deva steps out of the crumpled robe, her curvy figure completely exposed.Despite her embarrassment, you can already see it giving way to lust as your sister eyes up the priestess, biting her lip as she takes in the sight before her.“Well? Am I going to be the only one here naked?” Deva smiles, hands on her hips.Rihara's eyes flick over to me, then back to the nude priestess.(cont)Missed out the whole damned first page in fact.
>>42197925“It's nothing he hasn't seen before, I'm sure.”“Just recently in fact, when the two of us had some fun with a couple of-”“Yeah, yeah, okay,” Rihara frowns, gulping down the cake in her hand and standing up, tugging off her shirt, the lightly tanned skin of her chest exposed save for the light fabric covering her breasts.Deva steps forward, cupping Rihara's cheeks and drawing her into a kiss, your sister frozen for a split second before she begins to eagerly return the attention, pressing up against the priestess' nude form.They break off from the kiss, Deva smiling up at the slightly taller woman, their cheeks flushed from the contact.“You two really do look so alike.”“Well, we are twins after all,” Rihara shrugs, as Deva's hands slip down to her waist, tugging her out of her leggings.“I have to wonder how similar you taste,” the priestess smiles, nudging Rihara gently back down onto the couch as she tugs her leggings and panties down around her ankles, your sister's legs closed in a strangely demure fashion, the neatly trimmed hairs of her crotch poking out between them.“You remember how I taste?”(cont at >>42197737 )
Arena wins, but I'm afraid I'm going to have to call it a day there and continue next time. I'm coming over really tired all of a sudden, and I'm worried my posts are going to suffer for it.I can hang around for some Q&A, but there won't be a final post today, sorry everyone.
>>42198143Does Deva appreciate both wild animalistic ravenous hard fucking and slow affectionate gentle soft loving cuddly lovemaking with plenty of kisses equally? How about Jareth, does he need to have his eyes opened regarding the latter?There isn't enough of the latter, I'd like to do that with her at some point. I'd also like to do that with Valia, but that's beside the point.
>>42198269From what Jareth knows of Deva, she enjoys the former, but likes the latter maybe a little bit more.Jareth's experience leans more towards the former, but he's not opposed to the latter, he just hasn't really had a chance to explore it in any of the scenes so far. I'm sure you'll get your chance for some cuddly gentle scenes before too long.
>>42198269Shes a Priestess of Elshhu, from what we've seen emotions are just as important as the actual act itself, if cuddling brings about enjoyment then it is just as powerful an act as raw sex is.
Iden buttlove fucking when?
>>42198470After the girls, I wouldn't want to get in a relationship with anyone in the party before Valia
Good night, Lordy, try to steer clear if Sharia zones
>>42198514>relationsipAlso why? It's not like Valia is going to get jealous or something. She saw the aftermath of us nearly doing Bone Chick. Just made her all hot and bothered.
