As the surge of frost power settles within you, you notice the demons that were watching the fight seem, satisfied. With their bloodlust sated for now you can begin to bring order back to the demonic city. While the tournaments will keep the demons in check for a while there is still a large population of them right at your doorstep. The current biggest issue they have is the total lack of food, no doubt normally they would just kill and consume other demons.Completed Research>Hybridization – The researchers were enjoying the new forms of alcohol generated as a result of the improved farming techniques and decided to begin randomly swapping around the genetic code of organisms. Then they started grafting body parts from one creature onto other. The results are nearly completely useless but the possibility of creating useful chimeras has been opened for further pursuit.>Hell material samples – Closer examination of the material recovered has revealed nothing. The rocks found in hell seem to be similar in nature to any other material of a similar nature.Ongoing ResearchParasite modification - stalledImproved robot design - stalledPower armor - stalledMonofilaments (1/2)
(2/2)Current problems>Demonic city – A vast majority of the demons will be unable to complete the process to immigrate to the goblin city in any reasonable amount of time. As such there is a large population of evil creatures without any long term supplies, probability of the brokered peace falling apart is high as the demons will shortly begin to kill and eat each other.>Outpost – A strange building has been teleported down to the pit. It is a fair bit away from your city but with the improvements in dampening our electronic systems should prevent them from spying.Hestia’s robots are working overtime keeping order enforced and cleaning blood off the streets. Since there are many thousands of demons waiting to try to obtain access to the portal it may be worth the time and effort to transform the demonic city from a prop into something more functional.> Seal the hell portal> Improve conditions in the demonic city> Go visit someone> Deal with another research ring> Check out the outpost> Train> Other Welcome back to Afterlife Quest!Twitter: https://twitter.com/ApophisquestsTGAskfm: http://ask.fm/ApophisTG Pastebins: http://pastebin.com/u/ApophisTGPrevious Threads: http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?tags=Afterlife%20Quest

>>42192643>Improve conditions in the demonic cityHay OP, magic anon here.Sorry for getting salty last thread, I was just frustrated with weapon anon's for dragging out the demon fight for the whole thread.Anyway good to have yo back!
>>42192939Welcome back.I try to keep things moving along, but with conflicting views and ties, these things happen.Also saw that request someone had last thread and updated the sheets to show some extra combat stuff.
same anon here, was it the Fighting Power update for regen and DR? I was the one to suggest that. Thanks for including it! I didn't know we actuallt regenned mana.I think you should include Hellfire resistance to that also.
So improving the city3d12+13 for effectivenessIf you have specific things that you want to see in the city now is a good time to mention them. Otherwise it will be mainly Hestia's improvements.>>42193092Added that as well for easier reference.

>No suggestions, Hestia improvement mode is a goYou go and find one of the drones that doesn’t look as busy to contact Hestia through.“How is the organization going Hestia?” You ask the drone.>44 vs highest dc 40“Significantly smoother after your show with the deceased victor of the death match contest.” The drone chimes with Hestia’s voice. “I would suggest massive restrictions on the number of demons that you permit to enter the portal however.”“Actually I was thinking, how much trouble would it be to divert resources to improve this mock city into something usable?”Hestia is silent as she ponders your question.“That would be a significantly better solution, the demons can begin proper socialization here first before being permitted entry to our side.” Hestia states after a while. “I have prepared a set of plans that should be easy for the demons to adjust to for now.”“I’m sure your plans are good, but I sense that there is something that you need done for them, right?”“An astute observation. The current expanding population of goblins and now the massive influx of demon refugees is straining our current water supplies. Full access to the lake would solve this, but you have mentioned the presence of a massive crab laying in wait within the lake. If you could remove the crab and solve the problem with the outpost I would have enough free processing capacity to devote to your project of saving hell from itself.” Hestia drones on.>Take care of the giant crab>Take care of the outpost>Second level of hell is just right there>Other

>>42193521>>Take care of the giant crab>>Take care of the outpostGit Rekt krab
So, bigass watercrab.What does its soul taste like?A big ol' heaping pile of "we get extra limbs" or a nice steaming plate of "we can breathe underwater"?Also. our monstrous transformation spell or whatever it's called, does it allow us to do things other than spider legs now?
>>42193726I was wondering about that, do tigers and other demons also count for that, what about those experiments we're killed?
>>42193760You guys never use that spell so its a mystery.
>>42193781Kek well we'll use it during the crab fight, it'll be a fun experience!
>>42193842At the very least we could use the spider legs to hold onto the thing.Or to stab the thing a bunch. Four extra spear legs coming out of our back, after all.
>>42193616Don’t worry, Hestia loves designing things and architecture.Alright so crab first it looks like. Do you want some back up from Ayla or a giant lizard?And any special suggestions on how to get the crab out of the water to fight, or do you want to use rebreather or implant to do an underwater batter?
>>42193951I figured we'd get Ay;a along with us and elctrifiy the water to force the crab to the surface.
>>42193951Easy, we make a bigass mana trap that looks like a cleaner.It'll pop up for lunch and we'll kill it.Done and done.
>>42194170That's not a bad idea
“Fair enough, I’ll take the crab out first that would give you immediate access to the extra water that you need.”“Try to not be too flashy then, the outpost remains an unknown.” Hestia responds.Then you make your way to the portal, once on the other side you head towards the lake side, Ayla enjoys that section of the city so you should be able to pick her up on the way. As you walk through the city goblins wave and shout chief and imps chirp lord slayer as you pass them by.It takes a little while of looking around but you find her sitting beside a crate with the snake draped around her shoulders. It looks like she is very carefully trying to piece together what looks like a broken test tube.“Did you get into trouble when I was gone?” You ask her.“EEP!” Ayla shouts in surprise and shoots up into the air.“Master, ahahahaha, no no, me and Sazglangolor definitely didn’t break anything.” She says while her smoke pushes the crate away around a corner.“Oh! Look at this master, I taught Sazglangolor a new trick.” She holds the snake up.The snake opens it mouth and small arcs of electricity are discharged.“Isn’t it cool!” Ayla spins the snake around happily.(1/2)
(2/2)“I’m not going to ask what you did right now because I’m hunting down the giant crab. Do you want to come?” you ask her.“The computer- I mean uh,” Ayla struggles for a moment. “Hestia! Yes. Told me ‘to reflect on what I did’ but this sounds much more fun! Sazglangolor can go watch the broken, I mean wait over there.” She tosses the snake into the air and to its credit it takes to the air with much more grace now, calmly flapping its feathered wings as it drifts over to where the crate was hidden.With Ayla firmly attached to your side to head out to the lake while pondering on how to get the crab to surface.At the lakeside there is a drone waiting for you.“I have prepared a large battery filled with mana, according to your previous testimony the crab is attracted to large masses of mana. Good luck.” Hestia says through the drone, with a flash of light the drone is teleported away and replaced with a four foot tall crystal that is brimming with mana.“M-mmmaster, is that for me?” Ayla looks at you with wide sparkling eyes as a torrent of drool escapes her mouth.You are about to answer when the ground shakes and the lake ripples. The crab noticed the crystal it seems.The level of the lake recedes a bit as the crab surfaces, smaller giant crabs tumble off the back of the massive creature as a flood of water drains off of it.“What?!? No way this is mine!” Ayla stands between the crab and the mana battery. The crab gurgles menacingly at her.>Sword>Halberd>Gun>Laser>Electrify the lake>Other

It looks like Hestia already prepared for this; the mana battery is equipped with a device to convert the mana stored in the crystal to electricity. So you turn it on and get the crystal into the lake, arcs of electricity spark where the crystal hits the water.The giant crab gurgles angrily as electricity races up its legs and coats its body like armor. A large mass of electrical energy builds up in one of its claws. Then it fires the energy at you.>36 vs dc 36 passAyla jumps in front of you taking the full force of the blast. She laughs as she absorbs the giant bolt of lightning. You both begin to channel mana, your combination of vile and holy energy create an aura around you that could be useful if the giant crab got close to you. Ayla laces eight large searing rays through the crab’s legs, not hurting it for now, but it should restrict the crab’s movements. Then she unleashes a blast of eighteen mana arrows that uselessly explode against the crab’s armored shell.Then you unleash your laser against the crab, the burst of holy light and electricity slices through the crab’s shell and digs in between its eyes. >Your status - 27/27 hp, 23 -> 25/35 mana, 0/5 external mana, 20/20 shield, Holy aura>Aura of fear 2/3 turns remain>Ayla status – 3/3 hp, 190/120 mana, 20/20 shield>Searing ray – 5/6 turns remain>Enemy status – Giant super massive crab with a hole in its head – movement restricted by searing rays, protected by electrical auraThe crab’s shell begins to reseal as though nothing happened when your laser detonates blasting the crab’s broken shell even more open.>Sword>Halberd>Gun>Laser>Other

You pull out the strange orb and hope it will do something for you as you take aim at the crab’s legs.>92The orb reacts differently this time much differently. It melts and distorts changing into a long javelin that pulsates with energy. It wants to be thrown so you do so and open fire with your gun.>37 vs dc 15Ayla is distracted by the sudden burst of energy that the javelin unleashes as it soars through the air. Mid flight the javelin explodes into brilliant light which causes it to accelerate before colliding with the crab. Simultaneously the bursts of sonic energy collide with one of the crab’s front legs severing it.>New orb function discovered – Dispelling ray: The orb forms a javelin that when thrown smites an enemy with holy energy and strips any beneficial statuses that they may have.The force of your attacks cause the crab to stumble towards you.

You leap right at the fallen crab aiming for the hole between its eyes, the crab swings at you trying to catch you and crush your body.> 34 vs dc 30You quickly cast bind twice and glowing arcs of electricity wrap around the crab stopping it from moving. Climbing the rest of the way into position you consider using your sword or halberd but crab flesh is weak so your tear into the crab with just your hands. As you dig in you feel waves of magic from Ayla blasting the crab’s eyes or something probably.Tearing into the crab’s guts you feel the pulse of its soul orb.So dig towards it deeper into the crab and that’s when you realize that putting on a rebreather first would have been smart but instead you’ll just have to go faster.Ripping apart an organ sack you find the orb. It is about the size of your head and it feels weak.>Consume orb>Save the orb>Other

Those mean people might try to stick Sazglangolor into containment again too.” Ayla ponders while floating along with you.You stop by the brewing center to recover your stamina and mana before preparing to go to the outpost.>Sneak into the outpost with Ayla>Get some reinforcements, vehicles and attack>Blow it up with a giant laser>Other>>42197387But anon, stealing souls is bad, that sounds like a bad guy power.

“Ayla stay close and stay silent we are going to sneak into the outpost.”>42, 43, 44 nice“Oh I can help, watch this master.” Ayla turns into smoke and covers your body, the smoke shimmers for a moment. “Now we are invisible, let’s go!” “That’s great Ayla, but we are nowhere near the outpost right now.”“I can hold on to you for a long time, don’t worry.”So with Ayla whatever it is she’s trying to do to you, you are able to focus on being very quiet since no one can see you already. It also takes longer since you need to walk the entire way, but it is effective.At the outpost you see mounted turrets and foot patrols. The whole think looks like a military installation. With Ayla’s invisibility you are able to sneak inside when the patrols change shifts. The bottom floor of the building is filled with bunks for sleeping and a mess hall. Second floor is empty private quarters and a recreation area.The third floor takes a lot of waiting until it opens up, inside is computing equipment, visual scans of your city are displayed with markings suggesting how to try and invade the mindboggling space Hestia has designed. On a table there are two dossiers spread out with information on you and Ayla, they are both labeled high priority target and unknown persons.The door to the final floor is labeled commander’s area keep out by a piece of paper, obviously not official looking a warning to the newer recruits perhaps? In total during your time here you’ve discovered the presence of about 250 human soldiers, armed with some unknown firearms similar to your sonic gun.

You make your way to the door for the commander’s floor when suddenly –>43 vc dc 40A man comes bustling though and swings the door wide open carelessly giving you entry. Up the stairs and into the top floor easy enough.Inside you find a large testing facility, a researcher is hooking equipment up to a bipedal robot, no wait it is a suit of armor of some kind.“Commander!” The man salutes to the armor, and waits for a moment before the armored person waves its hand. “Uh right, I’ll just continue.”“We have reports of an unusually energy signature that approached the base, sir.”“The signature is unable to be visually accounted for and is currently present inside the base, sir.”“What? Are you all stupid or something? They must have gotten their hands of an invisibility spell.” The researcher yells at the reporting soldier. “Get a full spectral sweep done immediately.”“Yes sir, it will be done right away, sir.” The soldier salutes and departs.The researcher goes back to working on the machines connecting to the armor.>Attack them>Capture them alive>Try to sabotage whatever they are doing with the armor>Other

You start looking into how the computer interfaces with the computer the clacking on the keyboard alerts the terrified researcher.“You’ll never get it to work you monsters!” The researcher screams.“Let’s see what this suit can do!” The suit starts to flex against the cords of holy and electrical energy.You are not sure how strong the suit is, possibly strong enough to break free of the binding you cast. So you work fast, learning the systems while looking for how to eject the armor’s occupant.>Double 49After you understand how to operate everything you pull out a couple probes and your laptop and connect to the computer giving Hestia access. The screen flips back to the power armor control screen where there is a total device shutdown option; it deactivates the armor and ejects the pilot all in one go at the cost of needing to run diagnostic scans later. The shutdown is triggered and you wait for the countdown.“I was going to ask why you wanted help with such a simple task.” Hestia’s avatar appears on screen. “However, this terminal has full administrator access to the facility. There were a few security holes that could transfer data to somewhere above but now I have full control of the outpost. And access to all the information they have gathered, yes this is better than I expected. ”“Alright there is the strength option, prepare to die intruders!” The power armor’s speakers yell.The suit rips the bind spell to pieces and stands up to its full height then the pilot draws the suits massive sword. Only for the shutdown to finish activating. All the lights on the armor are cut and the cockpit opens and the pilot is ejected. Outside of the armor the full effects of your fear aura hit – her.“M-m-my father will make you p-pay for this!” Her eyes are wide with terror as your aura drives her to panic. >Take them prisoner>Interrogate the girl and researcher>Make the turrets open fire>Wire a probe for remote access>Teleport out unnoticed>Other
>>42201945>Take them prisoner>Wire a probe for remote accessinterrogation will come later. let;s get to processing these people.
>>42201945Whoa.Shit.She's actually a total qt.>mfw>Take them prisoner>Teleport out unnoticedHestia can do whatever she wants with control of the facility now.
>>42201945>Wire a probe for remote access>Teleport everyone and the suit back home
>>42201945Do we have jail cells set up for these people?
>>42202191You already have one prisoner, so sure. I need to make a list of prisoners now too.Looks like we take prisoners, get control, then leave for now. Writing.
>>42201945>Teacupping>PX4>Boner defeated!>Take them prisoner>Interrogate the girl and researcher
“You know master, you don’t need to collect more women.” Ayla says as a disapproving face forms from smoke. “She looks so young and useless, just let her go.”You bind and gag the girl and researcher, then have Ayla unmeld from your body to watch them. You also drop the auras so they don’t get electrocuted to death by accident. The girl is terrified by Ayla’s shape shifting and starts struggling helplessly.“You do understand that you are not even a year old right?” You ask Ayla. “She is older than you.”“What? I don’t work like that. I’m a timeless being master.”Yup, this is one of those unwinnable arguments so you help Hestia instead. With her guidance you connect a hidden probe deep in the base’s systems. Unless everything gets disassembled no one will even notice that it is there, giving you total control over their systems.“Good, the base will continue to be under my control when you leave.” Hestia states, “Which will be now, their screams were heard and a team is coming up the stairs now.”There is a teleport flash and you find yourself back in Hestia’s monitor room.“Was the information obtained worthwhile?” You ask Hestia.“No, their scans were very limited they were unable to even penetrate the outer sections of the city.” Hestia’s avatar smiles slightly. “We were able to gain control of their systems so when someone above sends for a report I will be able to trace the request. This and the suit of armor you managed to not destroy were worth the time taken.”“And the prisoners?” “Separated and confined for now, if you wish to speak with them here is their location.” Hestia’s avatar fades to show a map.>Check the prisoner(s)>Deal with a research ring>Go visit someone>Train>Look over the power armor>OtherGrabbing food sorry about delays.
>>42203121>>Go visit someone>>Train>>Look over the power armorGettin' laid by the jailbaitGettin' swoleand gettin' some sweet power armor research bonus
>>42203121>>Go visit someone>>Train>>Look over the power armorSupport, gotta get those gains.Perfect body GO. Training while lit on fire, in hot and cold conditions, bathing in acid. Lifting those 2000 pound weights while under x8 times gravity.Fuck you know what? We need a spotter and a training partner. We should find a demon to pal up with, all we've been doing is hanging out with a genie and talking to our A.I.
>>42203121>Go visit someone (ayla)>Train>Look over the power armorHave ayla, the lizard, the flying feathered serpent, and hestia's adaptive robot enter the hyperbolic time chamber with you. You all will endure great training, learning to fight each other with great efficiency - sometimes in teams against teams, sometimes in 'bossfight mode', and usually with shifting environments and restraints upon the members. Downtime will also be spent on bonding with and training the animals to be better with their owners.

>>42203309I love it
>>42203273We should absolutely master ten times gravity if we havent yet, then move on to twenty times
So I think you want to visit someone but only two people were suggested>Ayla>Outpost commander (captive)Then train, alone for more gains or with others?Then study the power armorLet’s start with 3d12+23 if you want to visit the outpost commander
Rolled 7, 4, 12 + 23 = 46 (3d12 + 23)>>42203754Question the outpost commander.
>>42203754>AylaFighting with them would be pretty intensive i should think, and would make us use more of our body and ki than regular training might, in a way at optimizes the body for fighting even under extreme conditions.So, i dont personally think it would decrease the gains from that logicMight end up being more ability gains than stat gains in practice, tho
Rolled 9, 7, 4 + 23 = 43 (3d12 + 23)>>42203754
Rolled 4, 10, 2 + 23 = 39 (3d12 + 23)>>42203754>and so, late to the party, he will roll like a golden god, but OP will have already posted
>>42204577I was eating, finishing writing now.
>>42204705>tfw if you would have posted, and I would have been late, I would have gotten triple 12s>suffering
You and Ayla go to the holding cells to speak with the outpost commander. When the door opens she immediately tries to run out and escape, which amuses Ayla who uses her smoke to grab the girl and float her back into the cell despite her struggles.“Fine, state your demands mister and missis unknown persons.“ She demands and Ayla begins giggling.“Master she thinks we are married, I changed my mind she’s cute we can keep her.” “W-what? Y-you called him uh,” The girl tries to regain composure. “Where is this? Surely you are not s-slave traders.”“You’re in no position to ask questions.” You tell her. “State your name, rank, and mission.”“Please, just contact my father he’ll pay any ransom.”“State your name, rank, and mission.”“Burgess, my father-”“Answer the question, I don’t know or care about your dad.” Ayla cuts her off, the girl seems shocked.“Evangeline Burgess, acting manager, I was supposed to watch the city the goblins were building and try to find you two.”“Why?” Ayla asks.“Because the two of you don’t have records, you shouldn’t exist.”“A better question is why are you posted here? Clearly you are not trained for this.”“This was supposed to be an easy mission just looking around for the research division. So I had father pull strings to get me appointed here. The command experience would look good on my record.”>Ask something else>Leave, she’s just a political appointment.>Other
>>42205012>>Ask something elseWhos your daddy, and what does he do?
>>42205012"Why is the administration wanting to destroy this city and cull the goblins? I saw the plans, so there's no use trying to lie. You were planning an assault."When she finishes with that,"Tell me everything you know about the defensess and technology your employer has. How much do they know about everything down here? And...have you heard about anything regarding the prison, or the void?"
>>42205012As much as I want to seduce her, because she's qtFuck that noise>>42205075This.She's obviously incompetent and useless, she's a bargaining chip.
>>42205012>>42205075>>42205144supportAsk if she know's anything about DMV chick, or who built the prison for the void
>>42205075Yes this! Go all kindergarten cop on her.
>>42205215For posterity's sake, we'll say "Director Snow" instead of DMV chick.Though I'm inclined to call her "bitch".
More questions alright.3d12+23 to continue on>tfw not a single shadowrun from me leaving out the roll results and dc

>46 vs higher dc 40She’s been telling you the truth. So while she’s being truthful you can get more answers.“Who is your father and what does he do?”“What? How could you possibly not know that?” Evangeline asks you. “My father is Richard Burgess.”She waits clearly expecting you to know and care, but you don’t.“W-wait, you really don’t know? Is that why you kidnapped me for your slave thing?” She starts panicking again. “You won’t get away with this my father-”“Yes you father, what does he do.” You cut her off“He’s the director of the armed forces.”“Good, now why does the administration want to destroy this city and the goblins?”“I don’t know anything about that, this was supposed to be just observation.”“There were plans and stuff for invading.” Ayla tells her.“I really don’t know, I just thought that I could get to learn how to use the combat suit while the men took care of everything.”“Tell me about the defenses and technological capacity of your employer.” You continue the interrogation.“Well my father runs that stuff, but I never asked.” Evangeline tells you. “About technology you should ask the nerd you captured with me, he loves all that stuff.”>46 vs dc highest dc 35She is answering honestly and quickly now, trying to get on your good side it seems.“What do you know about the prison and the void?” You ask her next.“Uh, the prison is just a myth, conspiracy theory guys just eat that garbage up.” She says. “And I think by void you just mean the empty space between the planes? What is important about that?” No help there.(1/2)
(2/2)“Director Snow. Tell me what you know of her.”“She’s father’s colleague I guess? She heads the personnel and logistics department and is known for her open opposition to the whole current system.” Evangeline explains. “I think she used to be in some part of the armed forces because she used to be my father’s boss. I think she’s the oldest director but that’s just a rumor.”That seems to be everything of use that you’ll get out of her right now.>Move on to ‘enhanced interrogation’>Leave and prepare for training>Other> [ End ]That’s the end.
