“That is all the questions for now.” You tell Evangeline. “Since you’ve been honest so far, I’ll have you transferred to better quarters.”“Look, it would be easier for everyone to just let me go. You wouldn’t want my father angry with you. He is very strong.” She tries to plead with you as you leave.“Wait why did we capture her if you’re not going to do anything with her?” Ayla asks you. “Or are you trying to tell me that you like blondes better?”Ayla morphs into a replica of the twins to continue her antics, so you ignore her and catch up on Hestia’s reports.Completed Research>Hell pitchforks and swords – Unfortunately during testing these items were destroyed. No new information regarding their abilities or construction was discovered. They were rather crudely fashioned weapons that without being hell forged would be otherwise useless.>Frost knife – While the enchantment on the knife was powerful the defensive ability imparted was inefficiently granted. Hestia has instead imparted the enchantment onto all current force fields. Force fields will now have 50% damage reduction.>Dire flail – Hestia already fully understood how to create the enchantments present on this weapon. Its platinum was melted down and put to good use though.Ongoing ResearchParasite modification - stalledImproved robot design - stalledPower armor – stalledCaptured armor suit - stalledMonofilaments - Nearing completionMana to matter conversion - Currently impossibleHell invitations – stalled(1/2)

The scanner has picked up one man who has rallied their forces and continued to improve their invasion plans.Looks like with the access to all the lakes water it will be simple enough to create enough farms and meat cloners to feed the demons in the city. There is a long list of facilities that are being implemented and it looks like work is going smoothly for now.

>>42216523>> Train alone>tfw first live session
>>42216853Welcome Anon, enjoy the ride
>>42216853Hey there, good to see you.I’m not sure spankings are training, but we can start with Ayla then move into solo. Your max of 10x gravity would be too much for her right now anyways.3d12+12 for training effectiveness.Gothic is a pretty good thematic style for a demon city, but if you have more ideas for styles post some cool stuff to spark the imagination if you want to.
Rolled 12, 2, 4 + 12 = 30 (3d12 + 12)>>42216998
Rolled 10, 12, 3 + 12 = 37 (3d12 + 12)>>42216998I'd love to have a bigass arena in the center of the city, ala rome for official bloodsports, and challenges.Kinda like the Olympics meets Spartacus
Rolled 9, 5, 9 + 12 = 35 (3d12 + 12)>>42216998Training
“Ayla lets head back home and-”“Invite the twins over for fun?”“No, we’ll try the new training room Hestia designed.”“No offence master, but my idea sounds a lot better.”As you walk back to your quarters you decide to change the subject to Ayla’s more destructive impulses.“Why did you have a crate of broken lab equipment?”“It was an accident honestly. I was just helping research things when people started complaining about Sazglangolor being dangerous.”“Do you know why they were saying that?”“Probably because they don’t think me teaching Sazglangolor how to use lightning breath is research?” Alya tries to puzzle out. “I thought they wanted to know more about him?”“And that led to breaking a crate full of stuff how?”“Uh, look! We’re here. Time for training. Too bad we’ll have to talk about it later.” Ayla darts into your house when you arrive.Hestia did a very impressive job designing a new training chamber for you, current maximum gravity increase is five hundred times earth levels with a hundred times faster time flow. You set the chamber to double gravity to start.“Master this training is even more horrible than your last idea!” Ayla says having dissolved into a cloud of smoke pooling against the ground. “I’m all heavy now.”“If you can get used to it, then you’ll be stronger and faster outside.”>37 vs upper dc 35It takes a long time for Ayla to get used to the increase in gravity, but since she apparently doesn’t need to have organs at all to function properly you get her up to an impressive seven times gravity before she can’t endure it any more. It didn’t help you improve very much but Ayla should be in much better physical condition now.You could stop here and go check on other things or increase the intensity and keep training.>Solo training, try to break your limits again>See if the outpost troops are up to anything>Go check on the demon city>Other

Aw, how come we arent doing the battle royale idea? At the very least we ought to train up with the adaptive robot, i doubt the gravity would affect it much.
“Master I’m being smashed to death.” Ayla complains to you. “Are we done yet?”“I’ll keep going for a bit longer but you can rest.” You tell her and turn the gravity and time modifications off.“Thanks! You’re the best.” She hugs you then floats out of the training chamber a little too quickly.>42 vs dc 40This time you focus purely on resisting increased gravity. Since you already trained to survive 10x gravity without any issues you start at 20x.With just pure calisthenics and a focus on full range of motion you keep enduring the gravity as your body breaks down and rebuilds itself. As you break past 100x gravity you pull out your halberd most of your other equipment would be crushed by now, but since the halberd is a part of you it just keeps strengthening with you.When you finally finish you are not sure how much time has passed but you are hardly even able to move back to the control panel to return gravity to normal. The display says that you’ve managed to reach a mind boggling 212x gravity. You body alone weighs over twenty tons from the gravity. With the gravity disabled you feel significantly stronger than ever before.>Deal with another research ring>See if the outpost troops are up to anything>Go see the demon city>Go visit someone>Check up on research>OtherAnd choose one training bonus>Toughness boost>Damage resistance boost>Regeneration boost>Large strength increase>Large constitution increase>Large dexterity increase>Strength, constitution and dexterity increase
Apophis, I'm wondering. If we had played that fight with the skinless demon differently. Maybe gone with that trolls suggestion to knife fight him, how do you think that would have gone down. In my opinion, he seemed cool and seemed to have some honor.

>>42218166>>See if the outpost troops are up to anything
>>42218166>See if the outpost troops are up to anything>Large strength increase>>42218224My goal for the tournament was to find some useful people to help manage our army, or other resources.It would've been nice to have recruited the skinless demon, but it felt like he would have betrayed us if we did. He was also competition for souls, which I think factored into it.
>>42218166>>Strength, constitution and dexterity increase
>>42218224He wasn’t honorable, as soon as your high DR and regeneration would become obvious to him he would have started using really bad things against you. He had blue hellfire, but didn’t use it during the fight.He had a hellfire wave attack that is stronger than your laser.
>>42218306And people didn't want to use magic in that fight.I can't even.
>>42218166>>Deal with another research ring>Large strength increase
When dealing with the outpost this time, i think we should approach the soldiers directly and ask them to stop planning violence, or else.If they refuse, have hestia open fire with turrets.
>>42218439I agree with everything, except attacking them.I want to capture them and convince them to work for us, I'd like more soldiers personally.
>>42218459If they refuse to not plan to assault the city, then hey probably wont be loyal soldiers.Kill them off in that case, dawg.
>>42218490The same think can be said of our researchers, I'd like to try the diplomacy option with them too before we decide to go nuclear on them.I'd find it extreamly ironic to take over their outpost and use it against them.

>>42218607Right. And if they refuse, we kill them.I don't see why we're going in circles here.
>>42218656Good then we're on the smae page
Your bones crack as they quickly reform without the oppressive gravitational field present to continue to shatter them. That was some good training you feel ready to take on that outpost again and whatever it is that they are planning.A quick walk to the research sector of town leaves you noticing that there are less imps and goblins around that usual.You head to Hestia’s monitor room to be greeted by an angry looking avatar.“I’ve been trying to contact you for hours. Obviously I need to create a method of easily transferring data into areas of altered time flow.” Hestia states quickly when you enter.“What is wrong now? I was thinking of finishing up with the outpost.”“Good because that needs to be done now. Apparently the Director Burgess heard that his daughter was taken. He personally accompanied a shipment of power suits down here to give to the soldiers at the outpost.” Hestia continues. “Even I could feel his anger when he arrived, thankfully he was called away on a more important assignment. Unfortunately they are preparing to launch their attack right now, all the suits are manned and mobilized.”“Is it possible to disable them remotely or thin the numbers by using their own turrets against them?”“The turrets lack the fire power to disable their armor. If we had more time to work it could be possible to remotely disable them. Even with our time modification technology we would need hold them off in real time for several hours. The only one capable of that is you so you would be unable to help develop the countermeasure.” Hestia explains.“And the combat ability of their suits, is it the same as the one we captured?”“No, from my readings it seems that the one we captured was put together from spare parts and scrap. These are top of the line models with much better weaponry and armor.”>Go fight the soldiers yourself>Gamble on robots and goblins to delay the enemy>Hand over the girl to try to stop the attack>Other

Have the demons hold them off for a bit. Should get rid of a lot of demon population. and hold them off a bit to buy us some time.We could also send a few lasers their way while they fight demons.Having ayla do the same. >>42219100really..
>>42219141Why do I feel like giving strong demons free citizenship for killing people will end up in rapes and murders?

>Attacking them yourself wins slightly“How long would it take to clone the girl to make a decoy?” You ask.“Too long.” Hestia replies.“Are the suits resistant to electromagnetic pulses?”“If you could disable their shields yes. Damaging the outer armor would increase probability of success as well.”“Could we distribute the panacea implant to all our troops?”“There currently isn’t enough manufactured, we can prepare that for future conflicts however.”Damn not a lot of options it seems.>Try to negotiate>You trained for this, attack them openly>Just vaporize them with lasers>Try to fight enough for an EMP to work>Other

“Alright I’ll see if I can disable to suits myself if I can, that should get your enough time to finish the countermeasure if you want find one.” You tell Hestia.“Very well. Good luck, I will be unavailable for contact until I finish.” Hestia’s avatar vanishes from the screen.You think about taking Ayla or the giant lizard, but these suits have a lot of firepower, perhaps too much to them to handle. So you take a smaller armored hover vehicle and speed over to a position close to the amassing power suits, getting the vehicle into the fight would just be a waste of resources so you ditch it behind some garbage and walk up to confront the outpost troops.“Anyone else get a reading on something approaching just now?” A robotic voice calls out.“Yea it looked pretty big, wait who is that?” Another asks.“Holy shit its one of the targets, we have a hostile here.”The power suits all draw weapons, the ones closest to you pull massive swords and those further out take up rifles and open fire.(1/2)
(2/2)>41 vs dc 30The bullets are supercharged with electricity meant to inflict more harm or stun you for capture but they just harmlessly bounce off of you as the electricity dissipates.“What the fuck is this guy, change ammunition!” Someone shouts.Three suits advance on you wildly swinging their swords, the edges of the blades glow red hot as they pulse with vibration.You draw forth your halberd, you feel your life energy fragment as some is compressed into the weapon. As it manifests it begins to glow with a holy light and electricity arcs across its surface.You dodge their clumsy blows and slam your halberd into them. Your slash shatters the power suit’s shields instantly leaving them open for further attacks. That reminds you to turn your own shield on, so you do so as you charge a burst of energy it the tip of your halberd. Arcs of electricity strike the ground as an electromagnetic pulse erupts.

“You think your armor is going to help you?” You ask them. ”That’s too bad because I’m not letting a single one of you past me after you threatened my city.”You can’t see their faces but they feel a bit shaken.“Try the cryo rounds!” One of them shouts which shakes the others into action, they start to surround you and open fire again. >54Bursts of freezing cold strike your shield and it fails under the onslaught of hundreds of people shooting at you. When they hit you however you just shrug it off like nothing is even happening.“Cold isn’t helping either, switch to explosives!” Someone says.You don’t give them the chance, you are able to close the distance and break the shields of five more suits before they recover from your attack.

A hail of gunfire and explosions nearly cause you to lose your balance. A sword comes flying through the clearing smoke and cuts into your cheek. The vibrations cause blood to flow from the wound faster than normal.>38A quick slash destroys the shield on the suit that attacked you. Then you throw your halberd as hard as possible at another. The halberd shatters the force field instantly, continues on and bounces off the shield of the suit behind the first. Your weapon falls through air right at you, you catch it and spin around to slash the four suits approaching from behind you.

You try to cast the monstrous growth spell again, an extra limb or two could help right now.Your head aches as a pair of massive bull horns sprout from your scalp. Well damn that’s not very helpful.Where one man fails they decide to send ten. You are swarmed by power suits from all sides each aiming to cut into you with their massive swords. You decide to try something new, arcs of electricity build on your halberd as they rush at you.>40There is a brilliant flash of light as you unleash the power of your thunder cannon, detonated point blank on yourself to try to only disable the suits rather than murder everyone.

>>42222735This,Lets just use fog yeah?
You quickly throw down some more spells, a blanket of electricity and holy glow cover the area obscuring everyone’s view.“Damn I lost visual!” Someone yells.“The electricity is messing up all my sensors.” Another calls out.>45They can’t see you but you can sense them. So you stalk through the fog shattering force fields one by one as they try to scramble out of the fog. Guided by the connection to life you have you slash your way through the shields without trouble. Then when you sense too many are out of range to continue cutting you unleash another emp to disable another group of suits.>Your status – 44/44 hp, 20 -> 21/35 mana, 0/16 external mana, 0/20 shield, Halberd manifested, holy aura active>Aura of fear 2/3, fervor 2/3, fog 2/3 turns remain>Enemy status – Over 100 active power suits, 139 disabled suits>Time until countermeasure is finished – 2 turnsThe horns slide back into your skull as the spell fades along with the splitting head ache.The few suits that have escaped the fog are trying to organize efforts to form a counter offensive.>Keep disabling their suits>Laser>Thunder cannon>Other>>42222735Next you are going to point out that it only works within twenty feet.

“Fuck it just open fire into the fog.” Someone yells.You hope that the armor can withstand the gunfire because you’ve tried not to kill them so far. You get hit by rail guns a couple times but it’s nothing you can’t regenerate.>double 40You hear some of the armor being hit but you’re fairly certain that no one else was hurt, yet. So you finish off the last of the suits wandering around in the fog. A few moments near the edges of the fog every now and then is all it takes to get the soldiers outside the fog to group up while firing into one section of the fog.“Nearly finished, keep stalling them.” Hestia sends another message to you.>Your status – 30 -> 44/44 hp, 21 -> 22/35 mana, 0/16 external mana, 0/20 shield, Halberd manifested, holy aura active>Aura of fear 1/3, fervor 1/3, fog 1/3 turns remain>Enemy status – Less than 100 active power suits, 167 disabled suits>Time until countermeasure is finished – 1 turns>Just wait in the fog>Laser time>They are grouped up thunder cannon>Other>>42223352That's what time magic is for!

>>42223449I took into account that you don’t want people to die, but no promises if you decide to launch a 20 mana blast at them.

>>42223765>Keep them at full health
>>42223765>>Keep them aliveHey, they decided to both fuck with us, and shoot their friends.Let em hurt, the dumb fucking bastards.

>>42223840>and shoot their friendsBut... They ARE the friends being shot.And I'm sure their opinion is very different on the matter.
>>42223765>>Keep them alive
>>42224145Yeah, they are shooting eachother, I said that.Why should they get a free pass for being assholes?Let the dudes they shot be pissed at those guys for shooting them, and thankful that we stopped them from bleeding out.
>>42224191What I'm saying is that you're effectively punishing the guys that are being shot at for being shot at.
>>42224258No, punishing them for trying to kill us and fuck with our people.Kind of important, that.
You hunker down in the fog to wait it out, most of their shots are missing anyways due to sensor malfunction.>40, 55, 85, 55The forces outside the fog continue to open fire with their powerful rail guns. Between your shield and the fog you’re confident that they will not kill you but the pilots in the disabled suits are not doing good. Bullets are tearing through their armor, you can feel their lives begin to slip away.“You are killing your own men.” You call out to themYou move through the fog draining your own life to heal anyone that is hit. At this point you are more worried about the condition of the armor as your regeneration kicks in.“Damn he’s still alive, keep shooting!” One of them yells.“Hahahaha take this asshole!” Someone else yells.Mortars begin to drop into the fog, massive explosions blast the ground apart. One of the suits is directly hit, the pilot nearly dies instantly from shock as the lower half of his body is severed. As luck would have it you were just close enough to save the man’s life.You can hear his pained whimpers as you will his legs to regrow. As your fog dissipates you sense that everyone managed to live though the attack, no thanks to their comrades.“Countermeasure complete. Probes linked for deployment. Standby.” Hestia says.(1/2)
(2/2)There is a flash as thousands of drones are teleported into the area.“What the hell is going on?” Someone yells.The drones unleash a high pitched sonic blast, the active suits’ force fields drop. Then moments later the mechanisms for ejection are triggered in all the suits. The drones then use tasers to stun all the soldiers who are too shocked by the ejections to resist. Then they round up all the soldiers for transport to your prison. “You managed to not kill anyone I am surprised.” Hestia says through a done that hovers near you.“Do we even have space for them?”“With spatial compression we have space for anything.”“And that sound?”“I was unable to establish a remote link so I induced a resonance failure in their shield harmonics, then similarly in a critical part of the ejection system. Unless the designs change this will be a critical weakness in any future suits you face. I will prepare a smaller version for your use if needed.”That could actually be useful it would make the suits completely useless against your forces.“Of course when we begin development such a flaw will not exist right?” You ask Hestia.“Of course, there are several other parts of the design that I would like to fix as well -” Hestia begins to tell you about everything she found wrong with the power armor. This may take longer than interrogating all the new prisoners.> [ End ]That’s the end for today. Next thread tomorrow 12 EST.

>>42224800That's a side effect
Let's raise some toughness. That'll be cool. Maybe some chemistry and computers too, we'll probably need it to fix those suits.

>>42225321This is good, higher regen and i presume an easier time willing things into existence.
What does max least creation do for ayla?And what does increasing geo spacial intuition do?
>>42225356Are you retarded or just an optimist to a fault?
>>42225356If you want that to be easy, then get a cool ability like Ayla’s Least creation.>>42225426It lets her create simple things from mana, the less complexity and mass an object has the easier it is to make. So breathable air is easier to make than a full course meal or a pile of gold.Its a mystery, how can never missing and seeing the trajectory of things in motion get better?Anyone want new research or should we just finish up with the dragon scales and other magic things?
>>42225506Let's finish up with researching our magic items. Sans Law orb.
>>42225506Research anti-us technology, for when we run into the alternate unverse evil clone version of us
>>42225562Not the dragonscales.
>>42225649oh you want to trry using our scavenger ability to multiply them right?
>>42225675The best bet is to throw them in a lake and have a bunch of goblins go find them, ten bucks says each of them find at least one
Do you want to include the Lich's crystal in this research plan?If it breaks your skeletons break too.
>>42225768aaah no not yet, I didn't know if the sceletons would be destroyed on not if it broke.It'll be something we'll have to handle personally
>>42225768Not until we get an equal number of robots, can't have the entire workforce just up and disappearing
>>42225768No!>>42225797Learn to read.
Can we research the lichbook curses? Hestia is improved these days, after all.Maybe we can figure out how to destabilize the curses, or weaken them.
>>42225768Has hestias core been reduced in size via spatial shit yet? How many compressed cores could we fit in the same room? Singularity soon
>>42225941>she still can't stump our 100 int infinite mind with the programI wonder whether she would be irritated or turned on
>>42225829You can do this, hyperspeed robot production is possible.>>42225878The inside of the book is obscured by powerful evil magic, you have to open it before learning more. You could beat the curse with your new and improved dice. If you dare to risk it.>>42226122Anons voted for the comfort her option, so it isn’t hard to guess.
>go bake cookies>come back>void got voted up againWhat the fuck is wrong with you people!?
>>42226183Could we invent something that lets us Jack into Hestia without wasting an implant slot?

>>42226459Oh dear, did the lewd disease spread over from the spider?
>>42226183What's stopping us from trying to untangle the exterior curse though? The one that happens when you open it? It should be easy to study the structure of that enchantment.
>>42226525Don't you know?We retroactively consumed its soul orb and got the loods from it!
>>42226632Ueah, this. You dont work from the inside out with this, you start with the outermost curse and work inwards from there. Most accessible to least accessible.
>>42226632Lich plot magic that originates from inside the book itself and so is shielded from being disarmed. When you guys were at 2d10 I warned against opening it, but at 3d15 you have a much better chance.The Lich’s touch curse that triggers on opening the book can’t be counted by mental toughness so if you guys want to open it give me 3d15+11.
>>42226749Does the 100 int double the willpower Save on this? It IS a mental roll, technically, and it does say mental rolls doubled iirc
>>42226838The curse is will save, not a mental roll. The line there is blurry so, why not, if you can roll over a 90 on a 1d100 I'll let you auto succeed opening the book.Otherwise its vs unknown DC with 3d15+11

Hestia’s sensors pick up far more power than should have been locked inside the book. Who know’s what kind of evil magic is locked away.Each spell is bound by a curse similar to the one preventing access to the book but easier to identify. DC 30+3 per level of spell.
>>42227535Excellent. Now can the curse research be done?I also wonder what the sensors picked up for the curse that failed to affect us. Maybe we can put that curse on something we dont want others touching.
>>42227679The sensors only detected a faint magical presence that faded away.Researching the curses would risk destroying the spell pages of course but you can try if you want to. The level one spells are all on one page. Once you resist a curse it fades away forever and can’t be studied.
>>42227786Probably should only research it personally then, instead of having others try
>>42227786>thread end>thread is still goingNigga
>>42227915I was going to end and write lewds but people wanted to open the book.Grab a drink and write up designs for weapons or something. You can make yourself better stuff than you currently use.
>>42228022A rail gun that shoots us.
>>42228022I mean how small can we make things that are alter gravity? How large of an area do they affect? Could we make dart guns that just increase someone's gravity so much they can't move? Could we freeze them in time? Can we make hellfire flame throwers? Have we figured out how to put out hellfire?
>>42228022Can we make armor that throws so much gravity outwards that projectiles thrown at them drop to the floor but leave the wearer unaffected? Could we put shit in the bullets to nullify that affect?
>>42228022I would like to build a gun that fires an inverse translation implant.It would force people to speak and hear in the most obscure languages possible, and self adjusts if anyone appears to understand it.
>>42228022Can we study our intense gravity adapted body so that we can create highly advanced implants for our troops?
>>42228022Are we capable of creating nanites yet? If so could we create nanites that lock down someone's body? Could we create nanites that give Hestia control over the persons body? Could we release nanites via the air?
>>42228303Getting kind of "Transcendent" there, aren't we?
>>42228323All controlling ais are perfectly okay when they love you
>>42228022Regular railguns, these fucks have them and they're enough to damage us, I want them, and I want lots, handheld, mounted, so fucking big they just evaporate shit.
>QuestionsSpatial compression says:Overall outside volume must be equal to 0.00001% of a compressed space area.so pretty small. But the effects are inside a space. You would need a set of drones or something to surround someone for this.Yes but they would burn their containers failry quickly, not every part can be hell forged metal. Hellfire can't be put out by any known means so far.You gravity fields work inside contained areas, so mobile drones would work for this best right now.You'd need to research an inverse translator or something.Hestia would love to study you more.You can VRP which is nanites, so sure research away.Suggested research is just what Hestia can think of doing with what you have, its not a limitation.
>>42228376>Hestia would love to study you more.Of course she would, wouldn't anyone?
>>42228022Hellfire frag grenadesNuclear capabilitiesMana sapping weaponry, I'm sure Ayla can help with that
>>42228376So maybe small tanks of hellfire with goblins manning them so they can just pull the ammo out their ass instead of letting it sit around to let it burn through the tanks?
>>42228422Hell forged* fuck
I wonder what would happen if we put a drop of blood to sign the hell lord contract, while in the goblin city. Would it transport us to hell, freak out, or just do nothing? Things to think about.
>>42228376A gun that funnels our lazer into a smaller size, so we can just bore dime sized holes through people's heads with pure death
>>42228624>Reggie starts spitting his laser through his hand to funnel itHAH!
>More questionsYou have a hand held railgun, and now captured more from the power armors, good research topic.So a hellforged metal container that explodes and spews hellfire everywhere, sure you can make those. Good luck cleaning up after it though. If you can find fissile material somewhere. You have a mana poison already doesn’t sap exactly but counters mages good enough for the enemies goblins can fight.The problem is less about containment and more about unleashing an uncontrollable and inextinguishable fire all over the area you are trying to fight in.
>>42228732Can we try having Hestia put "How do you extinguish hellfire?" Randomly into the demons intelligence program? I'm sure she can test the answer fast enough for it to not seem odd
We should personally research more effective and pure potions. A stamina potion that can help you go for days without any drowsiness or weariness, even if you maintain strenuous activity during it. A regeneration potion that lasts all day. A mana potion that bolsters your reserves to greater heights than they're normally capable of for a little while, and possibly regenerates your mana. An adrenaline potion that helps you in combat situations, enhancing reflexes and strength and whatnot (even if it makes you a bit more aggressive than usual).Stamina + regeneration potion would be fuckin GREAT for training for muscle gains. Hell, we might want to consider some kind of potion that makes it a lot easier to build muscle, or a potion that stimulates the mind in a way that helps you learn things at an increased rate temporarily.And an ADHD potion, for the goblins. Somebody give them adderal.
>>42228797Build receptacles into the computers and randomly send goblins on scavenging hunts for shit that doesn't exist, free tech!
>>42228732Build farms manned by robutts that are under a lot of time speed up, our population is growing immensely and we'll need to step out shit upMaybe build a city out in hellfire land for the demons who don't want to live with humans or just want to live out there, we should Atleast make some use of our hellfire sea
>>42224459>That’s the end for today. Next thread tomorrow 12 EST.Damn, dude. You are a fucking machine!
