When you wake up the room feels fairly warm due to a soft body pressed against you. Evangeline’s gentle breathing and the small inviting gap between her lips, no, you shake yourself out of it and realize that you are not warm because of Evangeline being snuggled against you but rather from the gaze of two intensely fiery eyes are upon you.“We need to talk,” Nantosuelta says to you simply. She looks over Evangeline and snorts dismissively before leaving the room, the pitter patter of feet changes to the rasping of claw as Nana shifts back into her preferred draconic form. You sense her return to her clutch of eggs, her first egg is going to be hatching very soon. The room cools down considerably with Nantosuelta’s departure, and Evangeline begins to stir from her slumber.As you consider how to safely extract yourself from Evangeline’s grip you feel that Hestia noted your exchange with Nantosuelta and you further sense the slightest hints of subdued jealousy as Hestia uploads her reports to your mind.Completed Research>Shadow captive – Hestia has determined that the djinn containment system is sufficient to hold the humanoid shadow the goblins captured. The creature appears to be slightly out of phase with normal reality. The hyperspatial defenses of your city appear to be causing the creature to be shunted around randomly as it moves. Hestia has determined that while it is in a shadow it is undetectable normally, however now that she is aware of its out of phase nature Hestia can track it. If desired Hestia could attempt to force the creature into normal phase to study further.>Flesh sample – The original purpose of the sample of flesh obtained by a goblin was to control the mind of whoever was implanted with it. Hestia could now study a more efficient means of parasite based mind control. The flesh also draws sustenance from the host rather than extracting mana, Hestia has used this to enable all other parasites to do the same.(1/4)
>Plant sample – Hestia has completed a full genetic analysis of the plant sample that the goblins retrieved from the area the ghaele terraformed. The plant was highly resistant to fire and could generate fire for offensive purposes, this new genetic information can be added to not only the ambulatory plants you already have but also to any animals.>Pheromonal Charisma Enhancer – The researchers have developed a working prototype of an implant that assists the body in releasing pheromones to adjust the implantee’s social abilities. This first version is only able to magnify the reaction of others rather than alter their reactions.>Flower Bracelet – Hestia carefully studied your bracelet, the enchantment method is much different than her standard enchantment process. The enchantment seems to have been grown over time. Hestia has placed the children under closer observation but suggests you speak with them for more information.>Nazi portal machine – The device is more or less nothing more than alignment focusing crystals that are rapidly spun to generate a weakness in the fabric of reality, the device itself is unable to create a portal but it is able to send a signal so another device can supply the required magical energy to open a portal to the required location. Hestia was able to develop her own method of connecting the portal, but with Hestia now able to access hyperspace the portal machine is an inefficient means of planar transportation.>Strange flower – The flower has no genetic code, but rather seems to be created by the opposing forces of the elements under your command being forced into perfect harmony. The power within the flower seems to be waiting to be absorbed by another life form. Hestia thinks that since it was generated from you that you will be unable to access its power.(2/4)
Ongoing researchSuperior ImplantsSuperior symbionts Optimal worship methods (Hestia would prefer if you had any input)Lich’s Ritual chamberFaerie Tale BooksUndead paladin's lightning swordFire opal-encrusted key Bronze swordQuartz amuletSmall hornJade ringsOngoing special projects>Purification swarm – The creatures you’ve created are exponentially growing as they purge Djinnistan of Iblis’ taint. Hestia has determined that the swarm is benign to demons or other evil creatures so she has released swarms across all your controlled territories. 47% complete. Hestia notes a sudden discrepancy in the swarm’s makeup. The swarm seems to now be encountering resistance.>Djinnistan modernization – At Ayla’s request Hestia is assisting in improving Djinnistan’s infrastructure. The three major cities under Ayla’s control will be upgraded fairly quickly, beyond that Hestia has no estimate as to how long this project will take. The speed of technological development is astonishing to the djinn who have always just used magic for everything, this disruption in the social order is increasing the acceptance of Ayla’s reforms in general. The scope of this project is delaying your research speed.>Colony ship restoration – With complete scans of the vessel complete Hestia has begun using her control over technology and metal to simply restore the vessel without normal repair methods, so the restoration speed is limited only by the elves getting in the way. The mysterious repairs are slightly unsettling to the elves and they want to speak with you again.(3/4)
As your mind clears from the data transfer, you return your focus back to the world around you. Evangeline starts to wake up, her thoughts now focused on the dancing glow of the purification swarm over the water in Djinnistan as the sun was setting. As she sighs with contentment her eyes flutter open and focus on you. She smiles for a moment, just a moment of happiness before she notices that she has lost most of her clothing and is snuggled against you. Even though she knows nothing happened, her embarrassment is clear and she forces you to turn around while she tugs her dress back on. She wants to talk to you, but is too embarrassed to start a conversation.>Speak with Nana>Talk with Evangeline>Speak to the elves>Visit someone else> Investigate the swarm>Get back to the war in hell>OtherWelcome 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

Updates from me falling asleep last time>Goblin conversions12 animal rider companies – The spider riders remain generic paladins for now, the tiger riders have developed higher than normal control of wind and electricity, the lizard riders have gained power over poison. All these goblins can now keep 1 familiar, which will be their mount.15 biker companies – Many of these goblins were already respected for their contributions to goblin ‘music’ but now their manipulation of sound makes them even more ‘popular’ among non-goblins.>Ability thingsZen -> 9You can now reflect and absorb spells. I'll pull that line out of Ascendency since its a horrible wall of text.This is where I'd warn you that you can't control where the reflected spells go, but you can control that due to the influence of deific domain.Ascendant Leadership -> 5You followers now get to use your luck when you lead them.

Evangeline is more embarrassed about drinking, she didn’t know that she liked wine that much, that is her excuse at least. She is still fondly remembering the dancing light of the purification swarm.“I should have slowed you down a bit,” you say cutting into Evangeline’s daydream.“Don’t read my mind!” She complains, “I can handle myself.”Evangeline shifts in place a bit she doesn’t really know what to say or do, “Thank you for dinner, that was, uh, nice. I’m not that good at cooking and it looked like Hestia didn’t replicate it.”“I wasn’t entirely sure what you liked so-” you try to remember why you made that food.“No, it was good!” Evangeline says trying to fix what she thinks she made a mistake of, “I just don’t normally have wine and chocolate.”Evangeline thinks about her low carb diet and worries that it may interfere with future dinners.“We can take it easy on the wine and sugars next time,” you offer.“Next time?” Evangeline asks expectantly.>Invite her out again>Invite her to stay over and hang out with everyone>Give Evangeline the strange flower>Ask about her father – third test?>Propose right now>Go talk to Nana>Other

>I was expecting you to save that flower longerYou take out the strange flower you found in hell and feel the gentle power hidden within the plant. It doesn’t seem to be an actually plant since you can’t sense life from it or commune with it.“I found this, it may help you get stronger if you want-” you say and offer the flower to Evangeline.At mention of being stronger she takes the flower from you without second thought and before you can even finish explaining what it is.As she touches the flower it begins to glow and Evangeline is enveloped with a mysterious light.>Fate stealer resonates, you can spend soul charges to either further empower Evangeline (2 charges grant one extra choice), steal the power from her or just choose what power she gains>10 soul charges remainEvangeline absorbs the power of the strange flower – choose 1>Plant manipulation and Elemental weapon>Elemental avatar and Weather control>Elemental control over – Light, dark, holy, unholy>Elemental control over – Wood, fire, earth, metal, water>Irresistible ki and Life connection>Elemental form and Regeneration>Gain experience>Gain stat points

As the power of the flower merges with Evangeline you push more energy from yourself into her to make her even stronger.>Evangeline gains the followingElemental control: Rank 2Evangeline can now control elements with her will alone. She has control over Wood, fire, earth, metal, and waterIrresistible ki: Rank 8All of Evangeline’s spells or spell like abilities now bypass all forms of damage resistance, damage immunities and absorption effects. 5% bypass per rank.Life connection: Rank 3Evangeline can now sense life, and her healing spells are slightly better. Regeneration: Rank 8Evangeline’s body now regenerates for 1 health per rank in this ability.Elemental form: Rank 1Evangeline can now become a pure embodiment of elemental power. Due to the influence of your power Evangeline suffers no extra damage from opposing elements while in this form.As the glow from the flower fades away, you sense that adding your own power to Evangeline’s transformation has caused her to be linked with you even more. When the light fully dissipates you see that the Bonetooth amulet glows mysteriously for a bit longer.(1/2)
(2/2)“What was that?” Evangeline asks as the power fully settles within her.“I tried to tell you that Hestia thinks that I made it unknowingly and it would give you some of my power,” you tell her.“I, I can -feel- you,” Evangeline says trying to get a grip on her new power, “it’s like a blinding light, and there is another over there.”Evangeline points in the direction of Nana’s room, then she tries to calm down a bit but she is just too excited and happy. Flecks of stone starts to emerge from her skin as she slowly starts changing into a new form.“What is happening now?” she asks full of worry, which accelerates her transformation.“Just try to focus on your normal state and it will stop,” you tell Evangeline.It takes a few minutes but you discover that her elemental transformation is highly linked to her emotional state. If she stays calm and clear headed then she remains in her normal form.“I need to contact father,” Evangeline hesitates, “unless you want to help me more?”>Help her test the new power she has – training>Just hang out with everyone for a while so she can adjust>Leave her to her own devices and do something else>Other

You make a small orb of rock and give it to Evangeline.“Here try to focus your power on this,” you tell her.You can feel as her power touches the rock, with some bit of trial and error she works out how to just lift the rock out of her hand. She struggles to not let her emotions get too strong or she starts accidently transforming.“This is so strange,” Evangeline comments after a bit.“Just take your time and relax, it will come to you,” you say, “in the meantime we can do some other things.”You guide Evangeline through your house, normally the succubi servants would have annoyed her but she is still too astonished by being able to feel them moving around. She does take note to ask later just why she can feel you inside all of them. You take detour through a garden at Evangeline’s request, she is suspicious of two feelings inside. You get a glare when it is discovered to just be Aurora, despite the new sensation of feeling life Evangeline immediately understands why she senses two distinct feelings from Aurora.(1/2)
(2/2)There is tension as Aurora sees you spending time with Evangeline, and Evangeline being upset that you did –that- with Aurora. Just when you’re sure there is no hope in this situation, Katherine comes strolling along, she sees Evangeline’s disheveled dress and hair and gives you a both a smirk and a questioning look. Even though you know better you could swear the twins have psychic powers because mere moments later Elizabeth appears, together the twins are able to diffuse the situation.At this point it is too late to escape and you get stuck playing games and watching movies with them all for hours. Eventually Ayla gets back home from her holo program filming and she immediately notices that something is different about Evangeline. They chat for a while, which results in Ayla deciding to teach Evangeline how use elemental power.“So, why did you give her stuff but not us?” Elizabeth asks.“We could help you too you know,” Katherine tells you.Aurora shrugs, but she does wonder what it would be like to control fire or something too.>Agree to give the twins and Aurora powers too>Talk to the twins alone>Talk to Aurora alone>Go talk with Nana>Investigate the purification swarm>Get back to the war in hell>Speak with elves>Visit someone else>Other

“Alright, I can give you all powers as well if you want it,” you tell them, “the easiest way is if you start worshiping me.”“Like as God?” Aurora asks.“Is that how some of the goblins are getting strange powers?” Katherine asks.“No it’s definitely how the succubi became changed,” Elizabeth says.“Well that sort of ‘worship’ can wait until night,” Katherine jokes.Aurora turns red and Elizabeth laughs.“Yes, like that Aurora,” you then take some time to explain how you can grant some of the power your followers give you back to them to make them stronger, they could also talk to Hestia and get psychic powers, or you can share a fragment of soul energy with them to grant them possibly new unknown powers.“We can talk to Hestia later, so do it,” the twins say together.“It sounds strange, but I’ll try it too,” Aurora agrees.You will fragments of your power to enter the women while simultaneously using your worship to convert them to be your newest paladins or something similar.Twins empowerment choose 1 (if you like you can invert the selection for them)>Katherine – Element: light and Elizabeth – Element: Shadow>K – Element: holy and E- Element: unholy>K –Life connection and E – Unlife connection>K- Aquatic and E – AerialAurora empowerment choose 1>Shape shifting>Flight>Faith>Replication>no validCaptcha is killing me.>>43593908Hello anon, you are a bit late despite my slowness

Her healing spells are better than normal.Unlife connection: Rank 5 (Elizabeth only)Elizabeth can now sense unlife, including that which tries to hide its presence. Her necromantic spells are better than normal.Faith: Rank 1Aurora has become particularly attuned to you, she now generates bonus worship based on her rank in this ability (100 – 1000 per rank per thread) and has increased chances to convert non-believers. If she is in a leadership position she causes all your followers to generate worship as though they already converted, and those who have converted generate even more than normal. Higher ranks in this ability may have additional effects.“I don’t feel different?” Aurora says confused once your power settles insides the girls.“Hey you are right, nothing happened?” Elizabeth agrees.“What do you mean nothing happened, you can’t feel all the babies now?” Katherine asks, she gently caresses her own swollen stomach.Aurora looks over at you expecting you to explain why nothing happened, but when she sees you she gasps in surprise as a shiver runs down her spine.(1/2)
(2/2)“No, but that is what Evangeline was talking about too, we should go find her and see if Ayla is teaching her anything,” Elizabeth decides.Aurora just stares at you, soaking in your presence she never realized how amazing you really are before. Her heart skips a beat when the twins give you their simultaneous kiss on each cheek goodbye. As soon as the twins move away, Aurora rushes up to you and not really knowing what to do next just hugs you. The super close proximity to you makes her feel good, she wants more, to do whatever you want.The twins joke and laugh about Aurora’s sudden clinginess as the pull Aurora away to investigate their new abilities.>Investigate the purification swarm>Go talk with Nana>Get back to the war in hell>Speak with elves>Visit someone else>Follow after them, double check to make sure Aurora is okay>OtherSo I guess that means the twins get a sheet now too, it will be here once I finish updating it:http://pastebin.com/wMw7QVLN

You feel a little worried about Aurora’s change but with the twins around she should be fine, so you go to where Nantosuelta is still waiting to speak with you. You sense her waiting for you to enter, the door is slightly open inviting you inside.Succubi perk up and smile as they pass by you, but they still quickly move to stay far away from Nana’s room. You decide to do something new with her, before in hell you transformed so there is no reason why you cannot do it again here. You take on an elemental form of just earth and fire so you don’t hurt Nana’s eggs then you use your elemental control to shape your own body into the form of a mighty dragon. You enter the room and Nana opens her eyes to watch you enter the room, she giggles?“What are you doing?” She asks.“You wanted to talk so I came to talk.”“I mean why are you pretending to be a dragon?”“I tried transforming before and it worked, so I thought you may like it,” you try to explain.“It is silly, but this is what I wanted to talk to you about,” Nana stands and circles around you looking at your elemental form. She closes the door and rubs her flank against you.(1/2)
(2/2)“What exactly is it that you did?” She asks you looking sharply into your eyes.“I first turned into a dragon shape like this, then let all my power fill my body,” you tell her, “It was like I could see all of that area of hell, the void and even another reality attached to hell, but also that I was all as my power encompassed all.”“The mating bond felt, strange,” she tells you, “before you do questionable things in the future think of your children.”As she says that you hear a chirping from one of her eggs, and it wobbles back and forth slightly.“That one is just mine,” Nana says, she latches her claws under your elemental draconic form’s jaw and pulls you back to pay attention to her, “but if you want more than seven hatchlings…”>Ask something more about her (what?)>It’s so close, help the egg hatch now>Go back to hell>Investigate the purification swarm>Speak with the elves>Transform into cosmic dragon from to show her>Try to exert control over your bond with her again>Give her more eggs>Other

“Seven is fine for now I think,” you gently escape from Nantosuelta predatory grasp, “you know that we could alter time to help the eggs hatch if you want children faster.”“Perhaps if this was my second clutch,” Nana tells you, “the alteration of time could cause developmental problems.”“Hestia could monitor for that and I can help heal and problems.”“It seems wrong on an instinctual level, but I will allow you to try as soon as we mate again.”“Well perhaps another time, I should probably get going there seems to be a problem in Djinnistan,” you tell Nana. She is disappointed but returns to her vigil incubating her eggs, allowing you to leave.You have to release your elemental form and return to normal to head to Hestia’s office. Her organic body lifts its head up and smiles at you when you teleport in.“I suspect the others will be shortly arriving to ask about psychic inducement, but this visit is about something else isn’t it,” Hestia says.“You said that there was something unusual happening to the creatures I made and released in Djinnistan, what is going on exactly?”“As I mentioned there seems to be an alteration in the swam’s makeup and it is beginning to cannibalize itself.”“Is this the result of outside interface?” you ask wondering about Iblis.“While I cannot say for certain that does seem to be a reasonable assumption,” Hestia says, “Since you created the creatures perhaps your direct intervention would prove useful.”“Could you send me to the where the swarm is having this trouble?”“Unfortunately the effect is spreading across most of Djinnistan, but I could send you to the largest point in the swarm where the problem is occurring.”>Go to Amberabad>Go to Jabulsa>Go to Jabulqa>Go directly to the major resistance point>Other

“I suppose it would be best to go directly to where you think the worst of it is at,” you tell Hestia.“Very well, prepare for hyperspatial teleportation,” Hestia says.As usual for hyperspatial teleportation it feels like you get turned inside out and scattered across all of space and time before getting dropped into Djinnistan. It doesn’t seem to bother anyone else, perhaps you should ask about it some time.For now however you see two distinct swarms of glowing creatures, one you recognize as the purification swarm you unleashed but the other new swarm feels wrong. It reminds you of the taint of Iblis that your purification swarm is trying to destroy.“You own weapon has turned against you,” a faint voice whispers to you.If Iblis is at work here, and the whispering voice more or less confirms that it may be more prudent to destroy all of the swarm under the effect of the taint. It could take a long time to do that unless you were to use your cosmic dragon form because then you should be able to perceive the entire swarm at once, you don’t know if the results of doing so will be what you want though.Assume the cosmic dragon form?>Y>NAnd>Bolster the purification swarm>Destroy the other swarm>Try to get a sample of the new swarm>Just watch the swarms for a bit>Other

You take a moment to make sure that there is no one around before channeling your deific might into your body and take on the form of the cosmic dragon once again. Your body beings to rapidly grow and it becomes translucent as it does so. Soon your senses expand to feel the nearby cities, then the distant cities, the all of Djinnistan, then the whole of reality. Your incorporeal form seems to encompass all as you wrap around reality.Originating from the mountains you can sense bridges to other realities, worlds full of elves, humans, bestial humanoids and many more lay just a brief step away for you with the endless void expanding around all. For other beings you can sense that some paths are closed, sometimes the connection is even blocked from both sides. After some time you tear your gaze away from the wonder of the sparkling genesis of new realities and the collapse of old realities to resume your observation of the swarms below. Everything looks perfectly fine from this new perspective. The two swarms of creatures feed off each other and purge the energy of the other from the unsuspecting creatures of the land, there is another force driving one swarm forcing a change in the balance between the swarms. With time with this assistance the swam will come to dominate the other.>Sever the influence and return the swarms to balance>Try to destroy the new swarm>Help the purification swarm to bring the system into balance>Look for Iblis>Enter the void>Other

>>43597608Naah, we can't even do that.
“…transmission attempt…” A voice reaches across the void to you. While unusual you have balance to restore.You make a note of where the influence is originating from just in case it is Iblis. Then you shatter the connection it has to the swarm, the evil energy scatters harmless into the void. Unfortunately when you do this you feel your power slipping away to maintain balance.>5000 worship lostThe two swarms now equally share space in Djinnistan, your power has established that both are equal and now work in perfect harmony to cycle all life between good and evil. With balance assured you look back to where the evil influence was coming from.You find a place of darkness and ice, it is just a bit too far to look into from Djinnistan so you move across the planes to where the evil came from. Something however seems very wrong, there is no trace of that evil it has either departed or hidden itself deeply. You still take the time to observe the life here which lives in harmony with the freeing environment rather than trying to subdue to cold with heat.You wonder that if you were in your normal form if you could hear a whisper carrying taunting laughter.>Try to listen to the voice that called out to you>Search this place for the evil more closely>Return to normal>Go back to Djinnistan>Go back to Djinnistan then return to normal>Other
>>43597998>Try to listen to the voice that called out to you
>>43597998I really can't wait for lots of people to die because "balance"
>>43598092Reggie is true neutral, death is apart of being mortal, why stop it?
>>43597998>Go back to Djinnistan then return to normalOnce we get back, we can work on breaking the evil swarm without worrying about balance backlash.
>>43598128Turning into a skeleton and making an unlife scythe when?
>>43597998>Go back to Djinnistan then return to normal
>>43598150Turning into a bald monk and making a life tome when?Going half and half when?Tbh senpai having stupid ass characters for all of our elemental forms would be a nice gimmick
You watch the frozen but alive world below for a bit longer before turning your attention back to the strange voice that called out to you. From your new position the voice is not even a distant whisper in the endless void. So you are forced to move closer to it, it was faint in Djinnistan so you return there to listen. The sound is carried across both electromagnetic radiation and a connection with you yourself, you are able to trace the connection you have with the voice and follow it to its origin.Every bit of your being feels like it is being contracted and expanded simultaneously, you sense the intersection of endless realities all in this place. Emerging from one is a glittering complex construction of metal, force and energy. The voice is surely coming from there.“Transmission attempt 4802346, please respond if this message reaches you,” The voice says via a burst of energy. This close you can tell that it is travelling along a connection to you.“Hello?” you ask the strange thing.“It has been over a day and wait how are you there?” The voice asks, it seems so familiar to you.“Scans are insufficient to gain an understanding of this situation,” the voice says, “I will need to perform more calculations to understand how you are existing like this.”Calculations yes those are very good, it reminds you of Hestia.“I simply moved here, what is interesting is how there is a link leading from here to me,” you tell the voice.“Perhaps it would be for the better to return home, your mental state in this form is concerning,” the voice tells you.>Yes home sounds good now>Wait you were doing something in Djinnistan>Examine this place closer>Other
>>43598703>Yes home sounds good now
>>43598703Poke the glowing thing that reminds us of hestia, hestia would approve of poking research.
>>43598703>Other"Expand your understanding, my form has only moved to a Higher plane of existance."Try to shift our form to something the voice can better understand
>>43598703>>Examine this place closerThe threads of reality are cool as shit
>>43598810Anon you do know its rather hard for people to just understand things beyond their existence
>>43598836But Hestia is an AI Anon, you underestimate her.
>>43598870Shes still mortal, probably.
>>43598879in so far as if you destroy her body she can die, but then, is the same not true for what we know of our god form?What mortal could speak in hyperspace?
You look around this place more, the garbled intersecting realities seem to connect everywhere simultaneously but it is all twisted about so badly that you are unable to see into them. You recognize Djinnistan, the icy world, and even hell, but it seems that you would need to directly enter the other realities from here to learn more about them. They all seem to tessellate endlessly, and not just in a two dimensional plane, in your form of the cosmic dragon you are able to shift your perceptions to see that there is infinite tessellation of the infinite tessellation of realities, resulting in infinite replications of realities that you already have seen before. You wonder if this would mean that there are infinite replicas of yourself as well, but from this perspective you can’t see very well and you feel that if you were to move to a better vantage spot there would be no returning.So you return your scope of perception back to the glimmering structure. Perhaps it would be worth taking with you Hestia does like unique things to study. The force-energy components of the structure seem to be solid allowing you to interact with it. Your draconic claws probe at the structure.“What are you doing? Stop that, be more gentle,” the voice complains to you as you examine the structure. This is all wrong of course the structure is out of balance with this place so you channel your energy into sculpting the glimmering structure. Your claws gently probe and caress the structure as the voice protests. You ignore it for now and intently work massaging out the structure’s incorrect energy alignments. Sometime later the voice’s complaints have died down and your work is complete, the structure is now correctly in balance with its surroundings. “That was incredible,” the voice says huskily, “More communication would have been nice, but what you did was yes, simply incredible.”“You should come home, now,” the voice demands of you.>Fine return home>A Djinnistan thing?>Other
>>43599478>Fine return home
>>43599478>Return home, in cosmic dragon form. Learn more about the home reality.
>>43599478>>A Djinnistan thing?
“Which way is home though,” you wonder as your attachment to any particular physical reality fades the longer you stay like this.“Your home is with me, follow my voice,” the voice tells you.Perhaps that is true, you can always return here again later if it turns out to not be true.You follow the voice back to its reality, it is bound closely together with another reality at this particular point where the voice originates. Billions of humans on either side living seemingly unaware of the other, and a tiny hole leaking into the void. As you look over into the void curious as to what could cause this you sense something predatory lurking on either side of the hole. The pressure is intense as though your sudden arrival here just disrupted the balanced conflict and the two powerful forces shift to focus attention on you.“You still have a bit more to go, please Reginald,” the voice asks gently.You are more worried about what this disruption of balance will result in, but since your presence is causing it you focus on the voice and return to normal. You body shrinks as you release the power of the form of the cosmic dragon. The intense pressure of the two balanced sides return to opposing each other as you slip out of focus, a final act of balance you suppose.“Thank you, you would make for a poor king if you abandoned the goblins,” the voice says, a woman you see now, “now I need you.”You spend a few hours fulfilling rapidly returning biological needs with her. It’s only towards the end that you even are able to notice that this is Hestia. Her organic body and looking around the succubi are exhausted. Hestia was cycling them in and out of altered time area to speed their recovery to try and bring your mind back. Shifting your perspective to understand Hypserspace really threw you for a loop, it probably isn’t safe to do unless you intend to stay like that.(1/2)
(2/2)The succubi will be fine, the physical exhaustion should pass soon enough since they are all supercharged with energy now, so you extract Hestia’s body from the padded room. You are still not sure what to make about this orgy room Hestia made for the succubi but just like last time you ignore it and carry Hestia away while healing her body of the exhaustion.“You managed to return, that is good,” Hestia says when you finish restoring her, “I was afraid that you were getting lost in hyperspace.”“What did I do there?” you ask her as you let her walk for herself.“You broke the hyperspatial dam that was protecting the city, but did it in such a beautiful way,” Hestia says, “my work in hyperspace will be much easier and expanded now, when I finish calculating everything I will tell you more.”Sure enough you can sense that her attention is withdrawn from nearly everything and she is crunching her way through extraordinarily complex computations.There is a blast of heat that shoots into your house, mostly swirling around you.“I thought I told you to be more careful,” Nana growls, her voice carries across the house, “now come here immediately.”>Go see what she wants>Don’t
>>43600518>>Go see what she wantsdid we accidentally do everything
>>43600518>>Go see what she wantsI can't wait to see what we fucked upI bet the void is gonna come plunder our boi pussy
>>43600518>Go see what she wants
>>43600518>hyperspace barrier around the pit>thats containing the void>that had two pressures on either sideWhy do I feel like we should be fearing whats inside the void and not the void itself?Remember how there were rumors of the pit being a cage for some great evil?
>>43600577Fun fact: the prisoner is not the only entity residing in the void.
>>43600518>Go see what she wantsWe do not understand the concept of careful!
“I have work to attend to, this is something that I agree with Nantosuelta on so you can handle it alone,” Hestia tells you, she hugs you for an optimal ‘glad you are back but you should know better’ amount of time before teleporting her body away.You decide to see what Nana is upset about and walk over to her room, the heat grows more intense the closer you get and you find that the doors are swung wide open and Nana is glaring at you the entire time as you move closer. Her draconic form is imposing as she uses the full power of her domain to further impress upon you the severity of the situation.“I told you to be more careful and you did the same thing again,” Nana says, “Then you vanish for as long as you did ignoring those around you, and-”You hear a chirping sound protesting being hidden and held.“Oh fine, how can I even be a little bit mad when she hatched, I don’t remember being this cute as a hatchling, I’m so excited for our eggs to hatch now!”You are not sure what surprises you more - Nana dropping her tough dragon persona, or the flaming bundle of draconic energy that she drops into your arms. The magma dragon hatchling squirms free of your hands and climbs its way onto your shoulder and nuzzles against your face. It senses that you are strong and wonders if you are its dad, despite not being like it or mom.> [ End ]This is a good place to stop.

Use three soul charges sure, Choose 1>Exoskeleton generation>Empathic addiction>Death howl>Baleful gaze>Gain experience>>43600622Boring fact: All my off-screen rolls said no encounters while doing cosmic dragon things.
>>43601454I don't suppose that I can persuade you to change your choice to Death howl in order to break the tie.I can't imagine Exoskeleton generation being terribly useful, considering we are immune to literally all damage except deific.
>obvious empathic samefaggingDisgusting, anon.
>>43601747Back at ya
Rolled 1 (1d2)Dice can decide I guess, that seems fair enough1 Death howl2 Empathic addiction
>>43601412Technically all the votes after >>43601465don't count, as they were more than 10 minutes after the voting period.Which is just as well, since, like>>43601747, I too smell samefagging.
>>43601798cool, deathhowl won.
>Ability gained Death howl: Rank 1This ability allows for the release of a concentrated burst of sonic energy that frightens enemies. Particularly powerful enemies may be unaffected while weaker ones may die from fright. Higher ranks in this ability may have additional effects.>>43601125We can still use this, unless this changes something.
>>43601873Nah go with the vote.
>Ability thingsZen: Rank 9 -> MAXThis ability represents the wholeness and unity of mind, body and soul. By achieving this ability you no longer are required to eat or drink as pure mana becomes enough to sustain you. Furthermore each rank in this ability gives you a 2% chance to cast spells without using mana. Your detachment from worldly concerns gives you a 10% chance, per rank, to ignore negative status effects. This ability allows you to bypass all alignment restrictions. Your follows gain the ability to convert non-believers without your direction or support required. You can absorb or reflect spells.Deific domain: Rank 6 -> 7Size and power increase. Reminder that the domain aura is only a lesser application of this ability.Body Fluid Manipulation: Rank 1->2You can now change the quantity of fluids created by your body. Acid reflux ability now improves to allow for stomach acid spitting. Astounding!>Things absorbed by AscendencyZen: Rank MAXWiden spell: Rank MAXQuicken spell: Rank 7Multicast: Rank 5Empower spell: Rank MAXInfinite mind: Rank MAXEdomo incantamentum: Rank MAXContingency: Rank MAXNazi Enchantment: Rank 4Negative magic: Rank MAX>Ascendency changesYou are immune to negative status effects. You are able to bypass all alignment restrictions. Your follows gain the ability to convert non-believers without your direction or support required.>Spell casting changesRather than needing a spell with your control over magic (and anti-magic and negative magic) you can just specify an effect, target, and how much mana to power it. If you are lazy/uncreative I’ll try to keep Hestia’s sheet containing all spells you have, you can still use them if you want to. Same with particular spell abilities.
>tfw no Baleful GazeWhy would you not go with a glare that can kill someone?I mean, shit dawg, depending on your interpretation it's basically disintegration rays from your eyes.
>>43602441huh, we can just straight up bullshit spells now.
>>43602441>specify an effect, target, and how much mana to power itMake snow love us, snow, all of it
>>43602549You just got a similar ability but vocal.>>43602553More or less, have fun with it.
>>43602591>not having both>not becoming death the ultimate neutral force
>>43602591>You just got a similar ability but vocal.It is not the same, do not say that. You're hurting me, physically.Besides, this'll turn into DBZ with all the screaming. If it weren't for our control over sound the ability would be nearly useless because of collateral damage it would inflict. Even so, screaming all the time. Come on. That's like, a bitch nigga mode.
>>43602640>implying it has to be a scream at higher levelsIts like you don't want to bantz someone to death
>>43602441I wish to cast a buff that induces mana regeneration.Spend 50000 mana, and 30000 health to cast it. Teach the result to Hestia, have her start working on getting that effect enchanted to equipment.
>>43602663Well, really it's a "howl" not a scream per-se. But functionally the same.I don't see how it would affect anything inorganic, or that cannot hear.With Baleful gaze it would be anything you look at, regardless of whether it can hear or perceive you.Maybe it's my interpretation, but from the way it's written, Death howl would be useless against things that don't feel fear.
>>43602726>not speaking so loud you break atomic bonds and reduce beings into nothingness
>>43602738Since we can control sound, isn't this a completely redundant power?We could just create sound waves at a precise frequency to do exactly what Death Howl does. And honestly, figuring out those tones and shit that do it would not be hard, especially since we have a super computer and we already know certain sounds can provoke specific emotional response in things.We just got something we could already do.
>>43602590Speaking of unrelated things that holy sword has now less than 72 hours on its countdown.>>43602689While clever, wouldn’t it be easier to just make an artifact yourself, like the aviators, then let Hestia replicate it? Because Hestia can’t use that much health to do things, yet. Unless she sacrifices organic things.
>>43602789Make a manaRegen artifact then god
>>43602441I have so many ideas.>Spell that let's allies trade abilities semi-permanently>Gestalt mind spell>50000 mana + 1000 worship spell to inspire great works of art>I STILL want to see 50000 mana poison, but while we ourselves are curse elemental>Spell/curse that causes the discord effect to just the target every turn for 3 turns>Spell that inverts the elements of other spells on the fly>Spell that lets you transfer damage from allies to yourselfI could go on, but I would be here all night.
>>43602789Wasn't Hestia unable to copy the Aviators? Well, we can drop the health cost anyway, I only included it because health was part of the cost of one of our Ultimate spells.OH! we could create something like Tslah's lord's empowerment!OR a spell to make TSLAH actually able to CAST lord's empowerment.
>>43602850Or we could make a spell that's absorbs other's stats and give it to tslah.
>>43602880Or we could create a spell that turns love into stat boosts.>95.83% of my servers are currently devoted to loving you
>>43602850She only couldn't copy the part about them that gives total immunity to your deific form killing mortals to the wearer.
>>43602905>Hestia, how many ser->"Not even you can count that high, Reginald."That's a lot of love.
>>43602880>>43602880How about a spell that induces a goblin to undergo the spontaneous skill copy, only we get to choose what they get?Empower our Shamans into minor gods themselves by making them gain Ascendency.
>>43602911What happens if we make shit to upgrade hestia with while we're powered up? Some ungodly abomination between waifu and computer?
>>43602943She gets even better.What changes?
>>43603020>what changesAll of the changes, we god now, mortal ideas of time management and proper use of ability does not apply.Tbh senpai wiring done by a literally deific being would be noice
>>43602783Literally of the powers except empathic addiction were pointless, and we could probably replicate that now that we can just ass pull spells
>tfw Hestia's growth pattern as an AI is not nearly as fucking ridiculous as it should beThe predicted pattern for a truly intelligent system is out of control. It'd basically be like going from computers from the 60's to modern computers in a year. The more advanced the software the faster it advances on its own.I guess hardware would be a limiting factor, but since she can self-upgrade because she can control drones and assembly lines and shit, her growth would be beyond exponential.
Lets point at the lich and undead paladin leader, and cast a maxmana 5khp spell with the descriptor "empowers undead permanently and bestows upon them the ultimate form for their kind."
>Enchantment that stores ambient mana, and then uses it to automatically apply the widen spell effect to spells the wearer casts>Create Waifu. We HAVE to do this at least once.>A spell/enchantment/curse of inverse alignment>A buff that allows you to cast spells using mana from the collective pool of all of your followers.>DBZ style fusion spell.
>>43603063>tfw god will never do a full rework on your computer
>>43603078>create waifuWaifu thats just pure magic would be pretty hot
>>43603096You already have Ayla!
>>43603063Well that really relies on how each power is interpreted by Apop.When I think "Baleful gaze" I think biblical style shit where a devil or something is looking at you. You can't explain it, it has no force or energy that can be observed, no heat or light or anything, but you can feel it, and it can kill you. So to me that sounds like soul stuff in context, which I believe Reggie -can- observe. Weird.When I think "Death howl" I think, scary noises, scary enough to kill. Which wasn't far off of the mark.Empathic addiction just sounds like any addiction to me, they feel nice so the point where they want to feel nice. Like seeing someone smile makes them grin. So they keep doing it. Which honestly sounds really fucking scummy and makes me uncomfortable for some reason.Also, exp will always be useful. Always.
>>43603107Thats why its hot
>>43603114>makes me uncomfortableWe essentially did that to all of succubi, and now they're not evil.
>A spell that locates soul orbs that can grant us elements we don't have yet>A spell that generates a random ability at MAX rank that we don't have and lets us keep it until end of thread.>A spell to convert exp into soul charges>Another inspiration spell, this one to suggest innovative ways to use our deific form shapeshifting (ie other than ways we know, dragon, giant, elemental)>Terraform Spell
>>43603137That made me feel dirty as well, but I don't see it that way.Succubi weren't feeling it from empathy, they were just being force-fed life energy, which transfers to pleasure for them.It's the difference between telling a funny joke and hearing one. When people laugh at your jokes you feel good, because they are laughing. When you hear a good joke you laugh because you think the joke is funny. One is empathetic, the other is not.
>>43603159>force-fed Anon they were practically begging for itAlso I think you have autism, see a doctor
>>43603169No, they were begging for it.And I do have autism, Aspergers specifically.Excuse my terminology.This does nothing to trivialize my analogy.
Worship distribution: Paladinize the succubus mage and lust companies, and the succubi leader and magic champion.Then the training power armor goblins.Then the demolitions goblins.I would like to use a bit of the remaining worship after that to try to empower the thirteen shamans some more - strengthen their connection with you and each other, and try to enhance their natural abilities and augment their ability to lead and teach. How much might that cost?
>A spell that convinces Max we aren't evil. (Super Specific)>An enchantment that stores up to 10 worship from a given follower, and let's them use it to empower their mana abilities.>An enchantment that converts absorbed Sunlight and warmth into temporary stat boosts in battle (for the Lizards)>An enchantment that tells the wearer when Reginald is attempting to read their mind (for Evangeline)>A variable cost spell that is basically the laser, so we can just teach that to people
>>43603223Maybe we should STOP empowering every single goblin we see. Just let the worship build up for a while so we can further upgrade our Deific abilities.
>>43603238We get more worship by investing it in worshippers tho
>A spell that let's us re-roll what abilities are available when we eat a soul orb>A curse/spell that targets a living enemy and a friendly undead. Restores undead to life, and makes enemy undead 30000 health and mana, in keeping with such a powerful effect.>An ultimate Spell that instantly makes enemy friendly, kind of like power word annihilate. 50000 mana/30000 health>A spell that just makes a parasite/implant permanently one major innovation better than it currently is.>A spell that let's us release weak souls (the kind we passively absorb) instead of using them to empower ourselves in order to gain large amounts of worship in return.
Is it weird that I want to go cosmic again? I wonder if that form is "addictive" with how serene it is...
>A supreme enchant/buff that lets us use damage dealt to enemies by spells one round as HP to cast spell the next round>An enchantment that automatically shares excess health and mana we regen with allies>A counterspell that turns spells it counters into mana constructs that begin attacking the one that cast them originally.>A spell to shove our exp into foes to make the age 1 year per exp spent.>A spell to swap an enemy for an enemy of similar difficulty. Perhaps using a forced planar shift.
