You are Sallazar, a young wizard who has recently left the army. You have taken a teaching job at Egwen Girls Convent.In addition the Headmaster of the school wants you to run the schools adventurers club, to give some of the schools more unusual girls something fun to do.The Adventurers Club http://pastebin.com/t467eb4qSheets in Excel https://www.dropbox.com/s/ba1zu710zhochvr/Character%20sheets.xlsx?dl=0#_=_Classes and Races http://pastebin.com/wCst2V8BQuest Rules http://pastebin.com/RG9EAvPqMain Character http://pastebin.com/xHFh2iz2Setting http://pastebin.com/ej98zdgDContinent Map http://ibin.co/260vHqwvCza9QM Twitter https://twitter.com/anAspiringQMQM Askfm http://ask.fm/AnAspiringQMArchive http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?tags=Egwen%20School%20QuestAnd https://archive.moe/tg/search/username/Pally/type/op/“Well” you say to the smoke-stained group of girls in front of you “would someone tell me how the fire got started?”You're back at the school, and during the morning of the first day of the school week you had to put out a fire in one of the alchemy labs.In the midst of it all, you found Chame, Phaysis, Evrumine...and a tiefling girl called Amara. Amara is a fairly normal-looking tiefling girl, though she's still smoking, and the large goggles over her eyes are stained black. You wonder how she sees out of them.They all exchange glances, finally the duel of eyes ends...with Phaysis losing.“Um, well sir” she explains “after our last match with the fire gems, we thought something like that would be really useful and so we went to talk to Cleya but making real fire gems is expensive, so Evrumine and I started asking around and it turns out that you can make something very much like a fire gem using alchemy which is very interesting don't you think?”You just raise your eyebrow at her.
Phaysis gives you nervous look, then continues “so we decided to ask Amara about this because she always gets good grades in alchemy and she said she could make us some 'fire bombs' and so we decided to give it a try”If there was ever a story that had holes in it....“So lets sake sure I understand you” you say “you go into an alchemy lab without permission from a teacher – which is against school rules – you miraculously find one that's unlocked” you give Chame a hard look “you brew up something with the intention of creating a volatile combustible, with the help of a girl who has been banned from the alchemy labs seven times this year, is that about right?”Phaysis wilts slightly “Well, I don't think it was unlocked, or at least it might not have been, but Chame said she could get us in.” As she speaks Chame makes 'shut up!' gestures to her, stopping when you turn to glare at her. Chame tries her best to look contrite: her hands clasped in front of her and her head down, though she keeps sneaking glances at you.“So not only were you in an alchemy lab without permission” you say “you broke in. Girls, don't you realise how dangerous it was?”Amara speaks up, in somewhat plaintive tone “but Professor all of the alchemy labs have explosion and fire suppression spells and barriers.”“None of which help if the fire spreads beyond the lab!” you snap “you put not only yourselves in danger, but the whole school.”They all look rather shame-faced at that.“We didn't think of that” Phaysis admits “We certainly never intended anything like that, I'm...I'm so sorry Professor.” The others all express similar sentiments.Ahhhh...they all look so miserable, and the fire was confined to the lab anyway, although about a third of the room will need to be replaced.They should all face some harsh punishment for this, but sometimes you're really soft-hearted with the girls.
“You'll be cleaning up this whole place to start with” you say “and....”What other punishment?>Nothing else>Lose credits (20 as default, or write-in)>Detention, all of you, I'll find some work for you>Other punishment (what?)XXXMore abilities added for Calluna and Phaysis in the classes and races pastebin

>>42307882Since I finally got around to updating the pdf, I noticed a few mistakes.Sallazar hasn't been updated to Abj. Specialisation 10 yet, neither in the Class ability nor in calculation for Reserves (it should be 140/200 now).Is it right that Nevyn lost her Displacement ability?Also she should have Melee Defence 16 in beast form not 15, because she has 22Agi.Anlanesa doesn't have a attack array for her giant form?Phaysis is missing the stats for her longbow.I think there was more, but I forgot.
>>42308079thanks for spotting, will get that corrected
>>42308060It's LimeBreaker. He's known for making art of quest characters and occasionally adding massive futa dicks to them. He's got a fun style.Here's his tumblr: http://limebreaker.tumblr.com/
>>42308098Comment on the Displacement thing? Was it replaced or deleted on accident?
Writing detention option
We only got 5 member in our 14 member club that are neither Wizard nor Sorcerer and that is counting the Priest Natalina.Full on caster supremacy.We also should get a Sorcerer teacher soon, we got even more Sorcerer than Wizards.
>>42308125>Linking TumblrGTFOOnly kidding, thanks Anon!
>>42308126removed by design.Nevyn now has access to other powers, but loses Displacement as a result.
>>42308164Get Sallazar some ranks in Teacher of the Ocean and do something useful with your time instead.
>>42308223Teacher of the Ocean doesn't actually help so much with that because its FAR better for intense training of a few students in what Sallazar is already Master.
>>42308251And he counts as Master in every arcane casting class at rank 5, every casting class at rank 7 and every class at rank 9.
>>42308294Which doesn't matter to the restriction of up to five students for the increased TP gain.
>>42308294I wished people would spend a second to think before they try to be smartasses.
>>42308182To be fair, as long as it's only linking specific relevant pages instead of the fire hose of having an account it's all cool. Like liartownusa or incase
>>42308319That's only if you want to double the extra TP gain, he could teach the entire club as a Master and still grant more TP than a regular Master focusing on a single student.
>>42308351>That's only if you want to double the extra TP gainWhy the hell would you not want that?
>>42308351Considering there is literally no reason to not want the massive extra TP gain, I have no idea what point you're trying to argue here.
>>42308355Because 14 * 5 > 5 * 9 and some of the girls are already starting to pull ahead of their peers due to smaller tutoring groups.
>>42308351>he could teach the entire club as a Master and still grant more TP than a regular Master focusing on a single studentThats wrong though. He wouldn't give more TP gain than a regular Master would.
>>42308396He would, once he actually reaches 5. TotO also gives a flat bonus on TP.Of course anon is ignoring that Sallazar can't actually teach more than 5 people per week due to time constraints, but I'm not sure what is issue is to begin with.
>>42308384>and some of the girls are already starting to pull ahead of their peers due to smaller tutoring groupsAnd? We can easily even that out with XP.
“I'll be finding more work for you” you say “that you'll be doing during detention.”Amara and Evrumine both look suitably chastised, Phaysis gives a soft “oh!” and Chame...tries to hide a smile. Ok, extra duties for Chame it is, you had hoped her recent shunning would have led her to consider the consequences of her actions. “I'll let you know what you'll be doing once I've found some suitable chores” you tell them “now clean this up, then get to class.”You pinch the bridge of your nose as the girls start cleaning, so much to do...A letter was on your desk this morning, informing you of the date, time and location of your hearing date with the Crown Court Magistrates, three days from now. Hopefully you can get this legal mess cleaned up. And certainly not because you want to impress Taynathil, but rather because it will be the right thing to do.You also have girls lining up for private tuition, the wards on the school to strengthen, and probably some more magic items to make.The one bright spot in ever-busy your schedule is that your next scheduled dungeon is two weeks away, giving you just enough time to try to help Nataline, Tisania and Nevyn.Headmaster Sarum has also narrowed down the location of Tisanias father to a small number of possibilities and he has managed to get you a time-limited teleportation pass, permitting you to travel the continent (and farther) on 'official wizards guild business', with an allowance of yourself, and up to three assistants.
>>42308442I wonder if there will be any fluff/IC approach to this.>Hey teacher, why do you keep favoring X and X over the rest of us?>Why does Y get special attention and I have to work my ass off harder than her?>Z is the teacher's pet, let's make fun of her>So, have you two/three/four banged yet?>Student jealousy and etc
To help Nataline you could: talk to the merchants that paid for her to be made Soulbound; talk to the cult that worships her; try to get Tunvarin Guild to cancel the contract somehow; or try to find the other half of her divinity – maybe that might help convince people not to kill her.To help Tisania you could: look for her father; try to get Tunvarin Guild to cancel the contract somehow; or look for other descendants of Umsharishta; or talk to the Blackhallow Adventurers Guild of Silbraxis to try and negotiate a way for Tisania to help them without coming to harm.To help Nevyn you could: speak to the Archmage Galvinius try to get Tunvarin Guild to cancel the contract somehow.For any of the girls you could claim they're part of your Masterwork Project to qualify officially as a Master Abjurer. Exactly how you're going to do that, you're not sure of yet.As a final option, one you don't even want to contemplate, you could make one of the girls your familiar, typing her mind and soul to yours. It is an option you are loathe to use, due to the side-effects. But given the fates the girls might face...Who are you going to help first?>Nataline>Tisania>Nevyn>All (talk to Tunvarin Guild)>Other (?)After choosing who to help, then you can pick how in a follow-up vote, but feel free to discuss it. Only once the follow-up vote is called will votes for method be counted
>>42308498>NevynLet's finish her side plot first, it's already half done.
>>42308493>Hey teacher, why do you keep favoring X and X over the rest of us?I can't really see that since we usually focus on training the 5 girls that actually have active interest in Wizardry/Sorcery, the others just dabble anyway.>>42308498>Tisania
>>42308485And certainly not because you want to impress Taynathil, but rather because it will be the right thing to do.Keep it in your pants, Sal. For now
>>42308426Oh, right, time constraints. Linear temporal existence has foiled me once again.Calluna needs to make the Hyperbolic Time Chamber.>>42308442You can't really make 9 girls catch up to 5 Sallazar-tutored girls when XP was already earned in lower overall amounts than TP before Teacher even existed.
>>42308552>You can't really make 9 girls catch up to 5 Sallazar-tutored girlsYou can if you mix up which 5 girls he tutors every week. Only Safire and Janrael will surge ahead, which isn't that terrible and we could always stop the fixed private tutoring for them once they are at a certain level.
>>42308498>Nevyn>>42308552>Calluna needs to make the Hyperbolic Time Chamber.Why do I have the feeling Flexbro could help with that?
>>42308574That would require a level of order and forethought I've learned not to expect from anons.
>>42308601We managed pretty well sofar.And we only got to rotate between Anlanesa, Lucinda, Tisania and Calluna on 2 open spots. Thats not very difficult to manage.And easier once we got a sorcerer teacher.
Nevyn it is
>>42308657I'm not seeing how a Sorcerer teacher helps, since the girls could spend their time just as well, if not better, by learning their non-caster class while not being tutored by Sallazar.
Ok, you've come pretty far with Nevyn, you might as well get her sorted before dealing with the others.But what's the plan?>Speak to Archmage Galvinius>Speak to the Tunvarin Guild>Talk to Nevyn about her being your Masterwork project>Talk to Nevyn about her being your Familiar>Other (?)
>>42308767>Speak to Archmage Galvinius
>>42308767>>Speak to Archmage Galvinius
>>42308746>since the girls could spend their time just as well, if not better, by learning their non-caster class while not being tutored by SallazarUnless they want to improve their caster class even without Sallazar. I don't see any reason to force them to restrict their training in sorcery to Sallazars schedule when we could easily just get a sorcerer teacher for those girls who only learn sorcery, which frees up Sallazar to teach the wizard girls.
>>42308767>Talk to Nevyn about her being your FamiliarCan't see her not being a cute little kitty pet
>>42308746Except they can easily train both spellcasting and non-caster classes in one week. They got also several spots of free time afterall.There is no reason to artificially stunt their growth.
>>42308892If anyone want's to be the teachers pet, it's- uhh that one girl who has a crush on Sal....I've only got maybe 4 of the girl's names/Soulborn things memoried
>>42308945>it's- uhh that one girl who has a crush on SalI don't think any of them do sofar we know it right now.
Familiar it is, writingJoking
>>42308973Thats not a crush. Thats just hero worship at most.
>>42308973Wanting to impress your respected mentor figure is not a crush anon.
>>42308973Maybe if you make reaching assumptions and misinterpret everything.
>>42309000>>42309017>>42309029consider me chastised
>>42309040Mind, at some point we are going to have to deal with something like that. But it will more likely be Janrael or Tisania.
>>42309000>>42309017>>42309029Wait it's not a crush? Huh.
>>42309060And by deal with, you mean give them the Detention?
>>42309060Calluna will probably act as a point defense system against romantic advances, students or otherwise. Of course, that runs the risk of her deciding someone is a worthy mate for her (adoptive) dad, and then we have to deal with an eldritch daughteru shipping Sallazar with someone.
>>42309077>>42309000Hero worship, if it is that, is often a form of crush.
When is PRQ supposed to begin?
>>42309092I meant let them down gently.
>>42309143Awwww, really? But I like my vote actually mattering
>>42309125>for her (adoptive) dadI don't think she considers him her adoptive dad. She said she hopes her dad is like Sallazar. Though technically she doesn't have oneI don't think she considers him more her dad than any of the other girls do.Which is quite a bit, to be fair.
>>42309125>>42309165Calluna would probably end up becoming sallazar's dad.
>>42309235Thats frightening because Sallazar doesn't actually know his dad so we can't be sure she isn't.
>>42309235I hate time travel.
>>42309235>>42309248>>42309254>>42309266Fantastic.Calluna: I fucked your mom
>>42309125>and then we have to deal with an eldritch daughteru shipping Sallazar with someoneI totally want to deal with that.I wonder what kind of person Calluna would approve of. Maybe if we ever meet some nice abberation soulbound lady.
>>42309334She'll just pick them both up and mash their faces together while saying "Now kiss"
Once the girls have cleaned up the laboratory, you send them to clean themselves up, and then to class.You tell the Headmaster where you're going, ask some of the teachers to cover your lessons for the morning and then head to your room, gather some belongings, and then shift to another plane...XXXYou knock at the door for a fifth time, hopefully someone will answer this time.You're on another plane, all around you is barren dusty waste, and you're standing at the base of a tower, knocking on a wooden door.You look to the top of the tower, did you get the location wrong? Or the plane? The description in the notes you were given seemed clear enough.The door swings open, and an elderly-sounding voice issues from the air “Alright! Alright! Fine, come on up! And that cheese had better be properly cured!”Well, him mistaking you for a delivery man isn't promising, but at least you're in.You wander into a very dusty foyer and to the base of a long flight of stairs. At the bottom of the stairs is...a skeleton, wearing what once might have been a maids outfit.Either this Archmage is so absent-minded he doesn't even notice when his servants die...or he has some odd tastes.But judging from the skeletons position of lying on the stairs unmoving, its probably the former.You walk up the long flight of stairs, teleporting or flying might be best, but old mages can get...tricky. They don't live to old age without having a certain level of paranoia, and you are in his house, so not using magic without permission is polite. Indeed, all around you is the feel of magic, you're probably being examined by some sort of ward or defence, but not one you're familiar with...no wait its a variant but its an alarm spell based upon hostile intent, and magical ability.Eventually you reach the top of the tower, having passed a number of doors on the stairs on your way. Everything is covered in dust.
You knock on the door at the top, and at the sharp “Enter!” you step inside.Inside you see a typical cluttered, messy wizards study, with half-finished projects and notes strewn all over the place.Sat on a cushion-covered chair, poring over a large map with tiny moving things on it, is a wizard so old that you wonder if he's a lich. He looks up from the map and glares at you “You're not Gerald” he grumbles “where's my cheese?”“I don't know” you say diplomatically “I didn't bring any cheese”.“Clearly” he sniffs “Only Gerald delivers my cheese, who are you?”“I'm Sallazar” you say “of the Northern Shtell Mages Guild, and a Teacher. I've come to talk to you about the Emperor Displacer-Beast Soulbound-”“Is it here?” he sits up excitedly “did they find it?”“Not that I know of” you say “but I'm actually here to talk about the contingency clause, specifically the Soulborn.”“Bah!” he says dismissively “that will take too long.”“I'm not sure what Tunvarin have told you” you say “but he had a daughter – one of my students.”“A female, pfah!” he groans “Women are useless.”Ah good, maybe you don't need to convince him to leave Nevyn alone, maybe his own views can keep her safe.“But if she were transformed into a male” he muses, grabbing a piece of parchment and making some notes “given a substantial intelligence upgrade, and most of those useless weepy emotions were removed...” You realise he is sketching a diagram of a brain, one with spikes going into it.Or not...Whilst considering your next argument, you look at the map. It seems to be a map of the plane, and the tiny creatures crawling on it are miniature displacer-beasts, each less than a quarter of an inch long.They're covering most of the plane, ahead of them the map is green and healthy-looking. But the places they occupy are brown and stark and empty-looking.

>>42309625>lying to the ancient archmage in his own sanctuaryBesides that being a hilariously bad idea, you realise he can just scry to find out?
>>42309648>>42309599Did you miss the part where he made it clear that doesn't bother him, because he can just transform her?Seriously, you need to learn how to wizard.
>>42309651He has high Int but apparently has abysmal Wis. Even a rock can lie to him.
>>42309671>He has high Int but apparently has abysmal Wis. Even a rock can lie to him.Yeah because he totally can't have lie detection magic or anything.You absolutely become a powerful ancient achmage by being gullible.
>>42309671> Underestimating wizard paranoiaThis is gonna end well, I can already see it.
>>42309671Thats your assumption.And a poor assumption at that.
>>42309630Just use the secret to make an emperor out of one of the feral ones and give him that instead of actually giving him the secret.
>>42309567>As her teacher I must recamend you look elsewhere.
>>42309716Chances are low he will just let us walk away with the secret if he knows we have it, dude is kinda obsessed.
>>42309745Then get gud at Abjuration and make a Legendary Spell that fries the brain of anyone that tries to read your mind completely.
>>42309716He turned a good part of a plane into a displacer beast wasteland to get this information. Something tells me he won't just accept no for a answer.
>>42309668Do you not see the part where it says Persuade?
>>42309759As I said, killing him will be required if we don't want to give him the secret.
Convincing him girls are useless it isPlease roll 1d20+11

Rolled 11 (1d20)>>42309781>>42309802It probably would work better with intimidate.
>>42309811He's an archmage. That probably isn't an option.
>>42309827Its totally a option, just not a very good one.But I'm sure Sallazar and the Headmaster together can take him.
>>42309850And then he comes back as a clone, or a lich, or just resurrects immediately in an extraplanar doom fortress. This is assuming two people that are Masters in only one school with at least one of them having no Legendary Spells can take on an Archmage.
>>42309891>And then he comes back as a clone, or a lich, or just resurrects immediately in an extraplanar doom fortress.One of us is a necromancer, his soul is going nowhere except the bottle.
>>42309934I think you mean theMOTHER FUCKING BAG, ASSHOLE!
>>42309934That wouldn't prevent the clone or the lich, since the former might not be reliant on the soul (or might have a cloned soul) and the latter would mean the soul is already somewhere else. Might not prevent the resurrection depending on the strength of the soul anchors in his doom fortress.
>>42310003Isn't becoming a lich an active process, not something that just happened when you die after preparing everything?
>>42310049In theory he could be a lich and just hiding it.
“That might work” you say dubiously, trying to sound like you're considering his idea “but do you really want to trust everything to a girl, and a young one at that?”Archmage Galvinius pauses in his sketching “you might be right” he muses “even with a modified brain, this might not work.”“Why do you need an Emperor Displacer-Beast anyway?” you ask him.He gestures at the map and harrumphs “Well world domination sounded so much fun, but now I've gotten bored of the things, and I just want them to leave.”“But you're a master of changing living things” you say “didn't you put some sort of lethality trigger in them?”“Hah!” he cackles, a high-pitched annoying sound “I did in the first batch, its true, but then my enemies discovered it, so the next batch didn't have that. This lot is the, hmm, ninth batch I think. No weaknesses, and a significant improvement on the original.”“Well I wish you the best of luck” you say as diplomatically as you can “but seeing as my student can no longer help you, perhaps you should cancel your request to the Tunvarin Mages Guild?”He grunts, leaning over the map again “I suppose I should, one less thing to worry about.”Ah, excellent, success.“Or...” he says thoughtfully.Uh oh...“Yes!” he stumbles to his feet and totters over to a dusty book case, retrieving a leather tome with a picture of an insect on it, he leafs through it and says “Aha! Yes! By means of this spell an organism can be rapidly gestated and bought to maturity within days, by consuming the mothers life force.”Is he suggesting...?“Fascinating as that sounds” you say, keeping an even tone despite a sudden urge to throw him out of the window “the children of Soulborn inherit only a fraction of their parents power, her children would not be Emperor Displacer-Beasts.”He waves the book at you and gives a high-pitched cackle again “ordinarily no, but I have discovered how to make all manner of creatures breed true.”
Oh no, this is not happening.What do you do?>I think I can find you a male one (you'll convince Nevyn to accept a temporary gender change or something) and bargain for 'his' services (options in follow-up vote)>Tell him she failed to become an Empress (lie)>Offer him the secret of creating Emperor Displacer-Beasts>Other (?)Other options from above are still valid, I just didn't want to clutter the vote too much.

>>42310241>>42310218>>42310217>>42310189I hope you got a plan for when he demands the ecre or the displacer beast from us afterwards.
>>42310269I would argue the last two are within the same minute, but a Slaad could probably pull that off...
>>42310271All they're thinking is futa
>>42310162>Offer him the secret of creating Emperor Displacer-Beasts
>>42310294No, they're thinking gender bending, thats different from futa.
>>42310294No anon, futas are not males.And now I'm genuinely intrigued by how the girls would react to their genderbent versions and each other's.
>>42310269 QQ I swear i'm not
>>42310162>Offer him the secret of creating Emperor Displacer-BeastsDownside, he'll have the secret.Upside, Emperors are practically impossible to control if you aren't a member of the royal family.
>>42310355A rampaging Emperor displacer beast is pretty bad though.
Vote closedI am lumping in the votes to offer to bring him an unspecified male Emperor with the votes to temporarily change Nevyn.Whether you actually change Nevyn, or create a new Emperor will be decided in a follow-up vote after talking to her.I believe the votes are intended to be a commitment to provide him with an Emperor, without saying where you got it from.If this was not the intention of the votes, please let me know.
>>42310455>to provide him with an EmperorProvide him with one temporarily, at least.
>>42310455How many displacer beasts could Nevyn bring with her under the Evil team rules?
>>42310455>I believe the votes are intended to be a commitment to provide him with an Emperor, without saying where you got it from.By that logic then so are >>42310205 except we take it back after.
>>42310546Pretty sure most of the votes go into the direction of taking it back, the default one also is clearly not for leaving Nevyn with him.
>>42310581OK ignore the last 6 words then.
Yeah ok, I admit defeat, I don't really understand what some of these votes are for.Final Destination in 5 minutes from now.Options will beTelling him the secret of how to make Emperor Displacer-BeastsOffering to provide one, without going into detail.Sorry to slow things down and ask for a re-vote, but this is very close.If players want other options on the FD vote, please let me know before I post it.
>>42310635>Offering to provide one, without going into detail.There are two options behind this one though, either we say we bring one to help him get rid of the others, which is what I'm sure the votes were for, or we actually make a new one and give it to him.Thats a pretty important distinction.
>>42310635>I don't really understand what some of these votes are forI'm unsure whats so confusing here?Offering to lend him the services of a emperor displacer beast.
>>42310635>Offering to provide one, without going into detail.
>>42310672Speak for yourself, I'd have preferred to give him a new one instead of bring Nevyn to the same *plane* as this guy.
>>42310672Which can be decided in a follow-up voteStill, if players want, I can split the second option into 2, would you prefer that?>>42310693Please don't vote yet
>>42310699If thats the case there certainly needs to be a third option, to differ between loaning the services of a emperor and making a new one for him to use.>>42310708>Which can be decided in a follow-up voteIf you think that makes sense, then we can do that. I suppose the difference could be considered small enough to not warrant vote splitting.
I don't understand why the gender swapping element is even necessary. Just tell the wizard we'll bring one and get rid of them without being specific about the gender, he doesn't need to fucking inspect her, he just needs the results.
>>42310749>I don't understand why the gender swapping element is even necessary.Because we just convinced him a female one would be useless, so obviously we can't offer to help him with one.You might notice the gender swap option is identical to the "loan Nevyns services" option that already existed before just with the generswap, we made it necessary.
>>42310635I don't understand why people even want to bring her to him. Tell him how to make them on the condition he rescinds any claim to her.
>>42310869Because they don't want the crazy archmage to make more emperor displacer beasts and have Sallazar be responsible for the havoc they wreak.
keeping to orginal 2 options on FD, posting in a few minutes
>>42310885Such as eating him and then sticking primarily to their own territories.
>>42310898>and then sticking primarily to their own territoriesThey are natural teleporters and dimension jumpers. They are not gonna stick to any territory.
Final Destination Vote5 minute time limitDo not quote this postPost only the number, nothing else1 – Offer him the secret of creating Emperor Displacer-Beasts2 – Offer to provide an Emperor Displacer-Beast to get rid of the Displacer-BeastsSecond option is explicitly leaving it open as to where you'll get one from, just that you'll get one to get rid of the masses of displacer beasts. Nor does it mention gender.
>>42310955You linked to Pallys post>>42310946>Do not quote this post
Im kinda confused why we want the crazy guy to unleash a interplanar menace instead of getting Nevyn a displacer beast pack.
closing and counting
>>42311059Because fuck magical realm fags. I'd rather condemn a hundred thousand mortals to the depths of hell than grant a single bloody inch to their ilk.
>>42311088You are the kind of people who torments Pally.
>>42311118He's mad that a random person might have a fetish for genderbending, thus ruining everything forever for everyone, even though it doesn't mean anything.
>>42311118>Gender-bending>Not magical realmDeny as much as you want, it means nothing.>>42311123You have no place in this world, monster.
>>42311123Pally needs that kind of tormenting.
>>42311088As >>42310205 I promise you you we will find another way Anon.
>>42311151You saying Pally is a masochist? Well, he does run quests...
>>42311150>Deny as much as you want, it means nothing.see>>42310946Offer to provide an Emperor Displacer-Beast to get rid of the Displacer-BeastsNo mention of anything like that idiot.
>>42311170He didn't drop PRQ within the first 5 threads.Yes.
>>42311178>No mention of anything like that idiot.Its one of two options, and the far easier of the two too.So its definitly a very possible outcome.
>>42311059I'm just going all WIZARD on the problem, i.e. only giving a damn about things that affect those I care about fuck the rest.
>>42311205Though that almost put me off questing forever, truth be told.
>>42311239Except there was no mention in this vote. There are innumerable things we could do, including illusions, or finding a real displacer beast.
>>42311304Funny you say that because it put me off voting in quests for the most part.
>>42311344>Except there was no mention in this vote.Pally had clearly said that this option will lead to deciding between those options, so yes, this option winning means genderbending Nevyn is on the table.
>>42311394So you're automatically assuming that genderbend is going to when despite it be the most stupid choice? Are you high?
>>42311353It's been to long, what happened please?
>>42311411Hey, it's less stupid than giving a dangerous wizard the secrets to mass producing powerful war beasts.Gendernbending is fairly low risk.
>>42311411Not him, but remember where we are. This is /tg/, /d/'s little brother.
>>42311416So much same fagging. entire One anon armies rose up to kill an choice in the quest
>>42311416Let's not bring that up.
>>42311411>So you're automatically assuming that genderbend is going to when despite it be the most stupid choice? Are you high?I'm not assuming anything, I explained what made the other anon assume genderbending might happen or might be what people who voted for it wanted.Especially since several anons expressed interest in seeing genderbend Nevyn.How about you stop being such a cunt.
>>42311411It had enough support that there's a risk of samefagging once you consider the nature of the option and it's most likely supporters, and paranoia runs rampant through the community.>>42311425I think he meant most stupid choice now that giving him the secret has been eliminated. Which is correct.
>>42311425I meant out of the using an EBD to clean up the mess options. The secret was worse by far.>>42311434Fuck off with that noise.>>42311459>How about you stop being such a cunt.You first mate.
>>42311411>when despite it be the most stupid choice?I don't see how its the most stupid choice?Its certainly one of the safest, compared to the alternative of making a second emperor displacer beast.
>>42311502Depends on how imprinting works and whether we can get the Headmaster to let Calluna have a kitty.
>>42311459I sugested that Thomas might be going for a succubus/demigoddess 2 for 1 in mini paladin and got a lot of positve feedback for it but when I asked if we were going to do it got told NO. Anons joke about stuff they would't back.
>>42311582Calluna really doesn't need a second pet.And honestly, she also really doesn't need to infringe on Nevyns design space.
“You don't need to do that” you say hastily “I think I know where I can find one to get rid of the Displacer-Beasts for you.”He puts the book down “Oh really?” he says interestedly “where from?”“I just know where one might be” you say cagily “besides, the important thing is getting rid of the right? Not the how.”“I suppose not” he concedes “I really would like to experiment on one though” he adds wistfully.“Again, not the main issue” you say “right now, getting rid of them is the plan, although I'm not exactly sure where they can do?”He snorts “the Elemental Plane of Fire, or Water? Who cares about that, just get rid of them.”That seems rather cruel, but given their numbers, you can't think of any place they could go, not all of them anyway.“I'll get on it right away” you say.He fixes you with a beady-eyed glare “I had better see their numbers dropping by the end of the week” he says “or else I'll be going to Tunvarin.”You just nod your head politely, and leave, no point in antagonising him now that you've got him to agree.XXX“So” you say to Nevyn, in-between her classes “I think I can see fit to allocating you some extra credits, because this is a project that could take weeks.”You told her about your trip to the Archmage, though you leave out the creepy bits.“Yeah” she says dubiously “I mean, I dunno if I can even control them, or whatever, and even if I can, they're spread over like three continents, this is going to take time.”“Hence the extra credits” you say “well, are you up for it? If not, then just say, and I'll find some other option.”Nevyn gives you a sceptical look “like what?”“Like elevating a regular Displacer Beast to an Emperor” you say “and having it do all the work.”“You mean” she says “the notoriously stubborn things that don't obey anyone?”Well, not quite, you think of Calluna.“You are, of course, my first choice” you say “but I won't force you or try to guilt you into doing it.”
Nevyn snorts “Oh I'll do it” she says “it sounds interesting, and if nothing else I'll get to learn about Displacer-Beasts, I gotta ask though – do you have to, I dunno, turn me into a guy or anything?”You shake your head “no, since I won't be taking you near Archmage Galvinius. Deal or no deal, that's not a good idea.”“Oh” she says, sounding relieved and (maybe?) a little disappointed.Then she perks up “if they obey me, can I keep some?”“Nevyn” you say patiently “this is a magically-modified strain that grows and breeds incredibly fast, can you see the problem?”“Please?” she begs “just one, a kitten? I'll bet you can change it so that it isn't a problem.”Well, if you can't, a druid probably could....What is the plan regarding:Controlling the Beasts>Nevyn can do it>You'll create a new Emperor Displacer-Beast>Other (?)And Nevyns request?>No pets>Ok, you can have a few>Just one, a kitten>Other (?)Meta: Yes, the druids can remove the creatures more troublesome traits. And yes, sadly the default method of getting rid of them is lethal, but if players want to write-in any other plans, feel free.
>>42311691>Nevyn can do it>Ok, you can have a fewAlright, let's do this
>>42311691>Nevyn can do it>Ok, you can have a fewCute, soon everyone will have a pet.
>>42311674>That seems rather cruel, but given their numbers, you can't think of any place they could go, not all of them anyway.Clearly Sallazar needs to found a displacer beast kingdom.>>42311691>Nevyn can do it>Ok, you can have a few
>>42311691>Nevyn can do it>Just one, a kitten>Try to find a decent, uninhabited plane for them to live on with Headmaster Sarum so you don't have to have a teenager be responsible for genocide, or maybe ask Calluna...?
>>42311691>>Nevyn can do it>Ok, you can have a fewGet the druid to spay and neuter them though.
>>42311691Aren't there drow living across a land bridge and we kind of hate them?Can't we send the displacer beasts there?
>>42311691>>Nevyn can do it>>Just one, a kitten
>>42311691>Nevyn can do it>Just one, a kitten
>>42311691>Nevyn can do it>Ok, you can have a fewI'm repeating my question from before, how many displacer beasts could Nevyn bring with her under the evil team rules?
>>42311691>Nevyn can do it>Ok, you can have a fewSell them to zoos? have them guard the school? we must save them!
>>42311780There's millions of the things, anon. There aren't enough zoos in the cosmology. Zoos can be pretty shitty places to live for regular giant cats, anyway.
>>42311747YesVery aggressive move though
>>42311691Pally, if Sallazar asked nevyn about it and she said she'd do it, why are you giving us an option to deny her when Sal admitted to her being his first choice for this?
>>42311691Oh oh i no! We can transmute them into Dire Blink Corgies!
>>42311775>I'm repeating my question from before, how many displacer beasts could Nevyn bring with her under the evil team rules?Apologies for not answering before.Two if regular size, or one big one.By default, these ones are big ones.
>>42311691>>42311775>how many displacer beasts could Nevyn bring with her under the evil team rules?Seconding the question. Nevyn having a displacer beast pack, ir just familiar would be pretty cool.Or maybe she can gift one to Phaysis as her animal companion.>>42311827Because he can change his mind.
>>42311843What if me made them smaller then normal?
>>42311843>Two if regular size, or one big one.Two would be better, have a pack of her own...
>>42311847Ok, he can, but...you know?>Hey nevyn, I found something you can do and i'd like you to do it over X>Yeah, sure, I can do it>On second thought, let's not.>But I can totally do it!>Better do the X, sorry for teasing you about this Nevyn.
>>42311691>>Nevyn can do it>Just one, a kittenGet it druidedCan we dump them on the plane that wants to sacrafice the girl?
>>42311827>Pally, if Sallazar asked nevyn about it and she said she'd do it, why are you giving us an option to deny her when Sal admitted to her being his first choice for this?Because I said I'd allow a follow-up vote on whether it would be Nevyn or a new 'Beast.And from previous experience, players prefer to ask an NPC their preference before making decisions that affect that NPC.And the first choice thing is Sallazar being encouraging.Telling a student 'you're my last choice, because other choices are better' demoralises them.
>>42311892I think Pally just didn't find a better in-character way for Sallazar to broach the subject to Nevyn while still allowing anons to vote on if Nevyn does it or we make a second one.
Looks like Nevyn and a few 'beasts are the winning options.With not many ideas about where to send them.
>>42311989send them to the cultists
>>42311989We don't really know enough about the planes to think of something.The only thing we could do is going into Callunas head and asking whoever they were made for if they want them, but thats not necessarily a good idea.
>>42312025Those cultists aren't even bad, or the ones that have the contract for Nataline.
>>42311989Pets should stay with their owners, of course. Throw them all in Nevyn's bedroom.
>>42311989I still think asking Calluna or searching for planes with Sarum are the best options.
>>42312049The contract fuckers
>>42312082The merchants? Who are most likely based in a city inhabited by mostly-innocent people on a plane also inhabited by mostly-innocent people?Yeah, nothing morally wrong with dropping millions of magical super-aggressive fast breeding lions there.
>>42311989OK so we send 50 to the guild to reserch, 20 fine beasts is an ok number for a princess to receive from an admirer right? Callunas might be able to send some home, >>42312055 is right and we become very bad at cards and bet a lot fo our "Prime breeding stock."That's a few hundred gone.>>42311817>There's millions of the things, anon.Oh shit.
>>42311989Let's see if we can gather them up, open some kind of massive portal, and drop them right on top of a bunch of Drow.
What is we send them to that one paladin turned Goddess we read about? I'm she'd love to have an army of Displacer beasts to redeem or what ever Paladin gods do
>>42312100I dont even care, fuck em
>>42312168Let's not because that sounds like a really dumb idea. Either it'd work, and then we'd have a horde of displacer beasts on our plane, or it wouldn't, and then we'd have to deal with drow attacking us and endangering the girls.>>42312175Wrong cosmology, anon.
well, given the discussion, I guess I'll add an option about where to send them.Some options might have consequences of course.
>>42312189The former we might be able to solve with Nevyn again, but yeah, people would die in the meantime, and I'm not willing to bet that all of the drow are evil.The latter would be really bad, and could happen even if the main drow civ is wiped out.>>42312184Enjoy Janrael's reaction to Sallazar registering as an extreme evil, then, on top of it not solving the problem because teleportation and planar travel are cheap for rich people.
lets not because they can spill over into dwarfs who kind of like
“You can have a few” you say, rolling your eyes “but they'll be staying locked up until they've been fixed.”“Yes!” Nevyn says, hugging you “you're the best sir!”“I know” you say, with mock arrogance “I am, aren't I?”XXX“Steady” you say, “steady...”You're back on the other plane, a pack of very large displacer beasts closing in around you. In front of you is Nevyn, in her beast form, snarling at them and facing off against them.Your spell mantle is up, and you have little to fear for your own safety, but you're watching carefully, just in case Nevyns powers aren't enough.Alone, Nevyn faces down the entire pack of twenty or more.The beasts snarl back, and several take runs at Nevyn, only to fall back when she turns to face them. You are ignored; their attention is on her. Some of the smaller ones run back and forth, juveniles excited by the confrontation, but unsure what to do.Finally a large scarred displacer-beast walks cautiously forward, snarling at Nevyn all the while. She doesn't back down and they both advance, until they're only a few feet apart.Their snarls become full growls and suddenly they fly at one another, but as soon as contact is made, the scarred one flops to the ground on its back, throat exposed.Nevyn sniffs at it briefly and bats it with her paws, it doesn't fight back. She growls at the rest of the displacer-beasts and they all crouch down on the ground. You let out the breath you didn't even realise you were holding in, it looks like she can do this.[Nevyn gains Command Lesser Kin power]Even when Nevyn changes back into her humanoid form, the beasts still cower. Until she holds out her arms and then they come forwards cautiously to be petted and stroked as Nevyn makes cooing noises over them.“Is it safe?” you ask softly.Now the beasts pay attention to you, surrounding Nevyn and growling at you, crowding protectively around her.She soothes them with a glance.
“It's safe sir” she says “Um Sir, is there anyway we can save them?”“Nevyn” you sat patiently “there's hundreds of thousands of them, where would they go?”“I don't know” she says “another plane?”“Where they would multiply out of control, eating everything” you say, “until they'd stripped it bare and then starve to death.”“Isn't there any plane that could hold them?” she asks plaintively.“I don't know” you admit “maybe, but it could take years to find one, time we just don't have.”“Oh” she says sadly, stroking the head of one of the younger displacer beasts “can we try to make their...their deaths useful, like sending them to the Drow or something?”You laugh, the idea of the drow having to deal with them is funny in a dark sort of way.“I wish” you say “but they might retaliate by sending assassins after the whole school, and even if they don't, if the drow managed to capture some, they might use them as weapons.”Nevyn bites her bottom lip, and looks down, nodding sadly, as tears well up in her eyes.You can't save thousands and thousands of them, that simply isn't an option, but you might be able to save a few hundred...once the druids have helped fix them.What do you say?>We can't help them Nevyn, I'm sorry>We'll find a plane for some to live on>We'll use some on our enemies (who?)>Maybe Calluna can help, somehow>Other (?)And once that's decided, what's next?>Help Nataline>Help Tisania>Wait until court date (3 days)>Other (what?)

>>42312556>We'll find a plane for some to live on>Help TisaniaProbably best to approach the easiest first. Nataline might take a while.
>>42312556If the druids fix them how many could we leave here?
>>42312556>Maybe Calluna can help, somehow>We'll find a plane for some to live on>I'll ask the druids if they can helpCalluna is definitely the first choice, but if that option can't save all of them, then explore the other options to at least save as many as we can.>Help Tisania>>42312663Greedy asshats that would just teleport off-plane if the city guard couldn't put down the beasts making the entire action pointless beyond slaughtering innocents, at that.
>>42312698Potentially thousands[Meta]The druids don't actually like the beasts, and would prefer they all die. They'll help you with some, because you're trying to help them. They won't fix huge numbers of them for you, because from their point of view, these are abberations, not natural animals.
>>42312738All this terrible anti-abberation racism going on. About time Calluan becomes a druid and shows them how its done.
>>42312738Sallazar's opinion on Druids confirmed correct.
TisaniaAsking Calluna, followed by finding a plane for some if that doesn't work
>>42312738We need to point out the time table we're working on, stoping the spread will give the natural animals the chance to recover.
you know I just realized, time we spend trying to save the displacer beasts is time we could spend trying to help the other two girls.
>>42312972Thats the downside of bing easily swayed by teary eyes.Though its only taking a few hours moe or so. And it might actually help getting rid of them faster.
“Calluna might be able to help” you say to Nevyn “if that doesn't work, then we'll find a plane for some of them to live on.”“Ok” she says, drying her tears “So which ones should I pick? And how many can I keep?”“No more than five” you say “as for which ones...I'd say the juveniles” you indicate the smaller displacer-beasts.“Ok” says Nevyn, sizing them up “why?”“Old enough to leave their pack and their parents” you say “young enough to be socialised around people so they don't attack them.”“But a cub would be so cute...” says Nevyn, gently stroking a small fluffy cub.“And would require feeding around the clock” you say “and constant attention all the time. Which I will not be doing for you – ask yourself Nevyn, are you ready to look after a baby?”“On second thought” says Nevyn, pushing the cub back towards one of the adults “the juveniles sound better.”XXXWith Nevyn having picked out her five beasts, you travel back to the school, housing them in a temporary cage, courtesy of groundskeeper Answick.You leave Nevyn soothing the beasts in the cage, as you go to look for Calluna.After explaining the situation to her, she gives you grave look and says “I'll need to talk to some people in my dreams” and refuses to elaborate.Well, with that done, you take your lessons in the afternoon, whilst planning what to do about Tisanias predicament.What are you going to do?>Look for her father>Try to get Tunvarin Guild to cancel the contract somehow>Look for other descendants of Umsharishta>Talk to the Blackhallow Adventurers Guild of Silbraxis to negotiate for Tisanias help >Other (?)

You spend the next two days tracking down potential leads on Tisanias father. You meet a lot of sorcerers with blue dragon and storm elemental ancestry, as well as some with magic items that give them similar powers.You also have a rather tense encounter with a polymorphed young blue dragon who is living amongst humans and working as a dancer in a bar. Still, you come away from that encounter rather puzzled but unhurt.During one of your trips back to the school, Calluna gives you a sheet of hastily written down planar coordinates.“What's this?” you ask her.“If you send the displacer-beasts to there” she says “they'll have somewhere to live.”You try to make sense of the coordinates, a task made easier by your exposure to Calluna.“These don't go anywhere” you say “there isn't a plane there.”Calluna rolls her eyes “I know” she says “it's an inter-planar relay point that diverts travel along the z7, s6, y9, t5, i99, q159 and z12 axis' to a further plane”Hang on, planar coordinates only have 4 particulars, not 7, and the numbers only go up to 87. But theoretically...your head starts to hurt as you try to envisage where that plane would be on the charts you know. A long way away and somewhere strange you decide.XXXThe day before you're due to be in court, you're at a seedy dive, on a different continent, watching a muscular man with his shirt off beat up another man, also semi-naked. Both combatants have magical powers, though the larger giant-blooded man is losing as the lightning storm surrounding the two of them wears him down.Eventually he falls, and the crowd around the fighting pit cheers as the victor raises his hand and gives a brilliant smile. The ladies in the crowd sigh...but he doesn't seem that handsome, rather plain actually, though maybe his victory and obviously fit body have something to do with it.
You are just another face in the crowd as he climbs out of the pit, and a cloak is wrapped around him by one of his four bodyguards. They are tough-looking half-orcs, equipped with expensive magical weapons and armour.Because the pit-fighter known as The Dancing Storm isn't a regular pit fighter, he's the chosen champion of the Torraz crime syndicate, and he just beat the champion of a rival crime syndicate: the Mosias. His appearance, his powers, all match the descriptions you've been given, as well as the contemptuous way he kicked his fallen opponent as they drag his semi-conscious body from the pit. Judging from the fight he's a lot stronger than a normal human, ass befits a dragon soulbound.You're not 100% sure, but this could be Tisanias father, whom she knew as Orin Gitreson.You need to be sure before you act. You could just go and ask him, or maybe ask around in the crowd, someone might now. Or a rival crime family might have dirt they have on him.How will you confirm his identity?>Ask him directly>Ask folk about him>Approach those helping the giant-blood>Follow him back to his lodgings when he leaves>Other (?)
>>42313876>Ask folk about him
>>42313876>Ask him directly
>>42313876>ass befits a dragon soulbound.You sure Sallazaar isn't secretly gay?>Approach those helping the giant-blood
>>42313876>Approach those helping the giant-bloodThey'd probably be interested in seeing him take a leave of absence.
>>42313876>>Ask him directlyShout his name in the crowd, see if he reacts
>>42313876>Approach those helping the giant-blood
tied between asking folk, and approasching those around the giant-blood, breaking in favour of asking around, please roll 1d20+5 fellowship

ok, writing last update of the thread
You decide to take the subtle route, and ask around. Fortunately there are plenty of people willing to talk about the Dancing Storm.He appeared in the city a little under eight years ago and quickly made a name for himself as a fighter, eventually killing the Torrez's former champion.As befits a crime syndicates champion he is rich, able to buy anything he wants, and he is well-protected. The various syndicates use the pit fights as way of settling disputes without resorting to open warfare, and the Dancing Storm has never lost, though a couple of fighters have fought him to a draw.He is also very popular with the ladies. And here's where people start to give vague answers, and look shifty. After careful questioning you discover that many of his one-nighters, and girlfriends end up in the cities free hospitals, with various injuries they insist are accidents. None of them are willing to accuse him, not that it would help, the rumour mill assures you – the Torrez family would just pay them off, or have them dealt with.One old man talks bitterly about his niece who got involved with the Dancing Storm; he relays a tale of emotional and physical abuse that she suffered, even though she apparently insisted that 'it was all her fault'.An interesting little fact is that she told her uncle that the Dancing Storm spoke of a woman he was once married to, and that they lived high in the mountains, with fields of white flowers all around them. She also tells of the rage she saw building with him as he spoke about 'that unfaithful harridan who took my daughter away from me' and how he desperately wants her back.That's enough for you. You squint at the Dancing Storm as he leaves the bar for the night, a crowd of supporters around him, and his ever-present bodyguards.Ok, this is going to take some planning...XXXThank you for playing, I hope you had fun.For your actions today you have gained 4XP and the club has gained 10XP.Next thread will be in 2 weeks.
>>42314380Thanks for running.
>>42314380easy shit, we tell him we know where his daughter is, then lead him into a trap with the mercs
>>42314380Thanks for running boss
>>42314380Do you think he'll come with us if we give him Tisania?
If AA is still around, I assume you made the Totems for Calluna. I got a question if you don't mind spoileringGatherer=LiraelLearner= KayRenewer=Dev Is that right? Or am I overthinking things?
>>42314628I didn't make the totems, and I only have theories on who they represent, for the most part.
>>42314945Ah, I thought you made those. I guess I have to ask Pally next time.Gatherer seems obvious, but I'm not sure about the other two.
