Forty two men wander about the now empty evacuated city, they are stealing glances at your group occasionally, their weapons ready to draw. Their hostility seems to go beneath the notice of its intended target, Tslah pure gold eyes are focused on you as she basks in the glow of raw power joining your host has granted her. The giant lizard of course doesn’t let basking go unchallenged, and with no small amount of effort the lizard has discovered how to harness the mana that radiates off of you to bask.The leader of the men, Osanas Lightbringer, the man that you guided back home with Ayla’s assistance from his centuries long journey speaks with your group directly. It is by his command and the confusion of Tslah clearly being a demon, yet not evil, that has prevented a fight from breaking out. Osanas himself is intrigued by the story behind you came to met Tslah and her conversion, the Law’s hard-line approach makes such things impossible. You get the impression that your returning of the holy books still has you on incredibly good terms with the Law despite your questionable company and actions. Hestia interrupts your friendly banter to inform you that she has completed her construction in Djinnistan for now. Ayla’s imperial rule is not absolute, there are still many cities which have not yet accepted her rule, however the now fourteen that she does control are now fully modernized.Completed Research>Forced warp enchantment – The basis of the invitations and their magic require someone to willingly read and/or trigger the enchantment. Hestia has been able to bypass this restriction and create a new enchantment that forces those affected to teleport to wherever she desires. Since teleporters already all Hestia to do this the enchantment is largely a waste of power.(1/2)
(2/2)>Psionic jammer – These devices deployed by the administration’s AI before it rebelled are designed to induce a field that disrupts psionic energy thereby stopping psychic powers from functioning. Now that she is aware of how these devices operate Hestia can now alter the ‘frequency’ of her abilities to operate within the jamming field and her own jamming devices now cover the entire spectrum of ‘psionic frequencies’ so that others will be unable to replicate this feat. Some powers are unaffected by the jammers in particular those like Evangeline’s which appear to not utilize any energy externally. Ongoing researchNeural control parasiteDetailed void studiesDragonbane and protection from draconic powerCompleted special projects>Djinnistan modernization – With Hestia having fully implemented her technology into the cities Ayla controls there is no more work to be done until more territory is seized. The final stages of Ayla’s social reforms are being implemented slowly via the learning program. A new capital city has been constructed form the seat of power for Ayla’s empire, but there are rumors of a rival kingdom rising - some worry that it is supported by dark forces.“Our patron has asked us here to offer our assistance for a short time,” Osanas tells you, “word has spread that the nature of hell is changing under your influence so I was asked to give you this.”He presents a crisp and perfectly white envelope to you; the letter’s seal is the visage of a crocodile, the incredible detail makes it look not stamped on but rather created this way. You can feel Hestia’s interest in it as she closely inspects it with her sensors, she draws the conclusion that the letter itself is charged with the same deific power as the mysterious crocodile altar that appeared before.>Open the letter>Don’t open it now>End the evacuation, return people to their homes>Explore the altered city>Talk with someone> Ask Osanas about the Law orb>Other
Welcome back to Afterlife Quest!Twitter: https://twitter.com/ApophisquestsTGAskfm: http://ask.fm/ApophisTG Pastebins: http://pastebin.com/u/ApophisTGPrevious Threads: http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?tags=Afterlife%20QuestSome notesIt was just a brief mention but ignoring the dragon’s demand that you feed it will probably be a bad idea.>New lizard ability unlockedMana basking: Rank 5After joining your host the giant lizard can feel mana, the ever present warmth of magic all around us all can be tapped to enable basking even where there is no light. Such an insight into the nature of basking will truly go down in lizard history. This ability probably helps the lizard recover mana.I forgot to mention Hestia’s changes for worship distribution, right?Her Invocation ability is now maximized. Due to her being the first of your high host and first you’ve tried this on her stat cap increases to 50% of your own and it will be linked like that so further improving you own benefits her as well. She also gains 102 to all her stats for her core and body. She has also gained the unique ability to store worship it you share, among other things this allows her to act as an intermediary for the invocation ability so her pool can drain instead of yours. Well it is yours in the first place since she can’t gain any otherwise but it could still be useful?

>>43853784Add to research: N-dimensional constructionusing spatial manipulation to build in more than 3 dimensions.This should allow infinitely scalable structures only limited by the designers capability to visualize and model multi dimensional objects.example: a 3D cube is 10x10x10 therefore has a surface area of 1000. a 4d cube is 10x10x10x10 or 10000.This should also greatly increase the computation speed of Hestia thanks to connections between cores and memory being shorter.
>>43854314Hestia will be happy that you’ve thought of this independently, she was already working on this avenue on research after you messed with her Hyperspace constructions in Cosmic Dragon mode.
>>43853784>Open the letterHAve hestia make a hole to the void large enough for the dragon, then drop that bitch straight through

The crystal should be able to hold at minimum a few million points of mana. It will be charged by us and then released on the War hell level.
“Is this related to you helping us here?” You ask while looking at the letter closer, it doesn’t seem to be made from paper but rather it is a construct of pure energy.“Not entirely,” Osanas says, “the high priest just told me that you needed that letter without any explanation.”You decide to open the letter and everything swirls around you as your vision shifts.The sound of falling water and chirping birds surrounds you, this time however you are confident that you haven’t shifted planes.You stand atop one of the highest buildings in the Realm of Law, none of the people below seem to notice your presence. The clattering of bones draws your attention to a woman standing on the roof top with you. The same dress made from the bones of forgotten creatures, the same cryptic smile as before greets you, however this time you notice that it isn’t that the woman has no feeling of life but rather it is that her life force encompasses everything.“You hid my altar away, you’ve come this far though so I will call that clever rather than rude,” the woman pauses, “this time.”(1/2)
(2/2)“You wonder why you are here perhaps?” She continues, “you have shown me interesting things and I am sure you have noticed that perception and context are rather important. Thus I have an offer for you young one.”“I am listening,” you let her continue.“Despite your heritage and predilections you have been just and fast to grow, so in light of you call for assistance I feel that an alliance is in order.”The letter you are holding suddenly glows and you see the terms of alliance form from the deific energy.----------•Follower of the Law become non-hostile to all demons within your sphere of influence•Followers of the Law will support your conquest of up to four circles of hell, starting at the fifth• Followers of the Law will support you in your conflict with the proto-dragons•Territory taken from proto-dragons is to be evenly divided•You will provide followers, information, resources, etc to support Lawful endeavors• For the next 10 threads (including this one) you will give 90% of your worship gains to Naras•You will move the Law altar to a suitable public location •Free conversion between both of your followers----------Naras the Goddess of Law stares at you with her chilling gray eyes expecting an answer.>Yes>No>Try to re-negotiate>Other

Tough decision. Give up on worship for the next few threats, but gain an ally against those proto dragons.Followers can freely convert both ways too,
>>43854592>>NoThis is a bad deal, we need no help with hell, we have to give her a tonne of worship and we have to give her a foot hold with the alter. the protodragons can be handled by dumping them into the void and giving our territory is a bad move.
>>43854592• For the next 10 threads (including this one) you will give 90% of your worship gains to Naras•Territory taken from proto-dragons is to be evenly divided•You will move the Law altar to a suitable public location Fuck no

Possibly an attempt to weaken us by denying us of a source of power.>•You will move the Law altar to a suitable public locationnothing too bad with this compared to some of the other shit in here.>•Free conversion between both of your followersyeah we saw the plane they were living in. There are not going to be a lot of converts and honestly those that cannot contact us on their own wouldn't be worth the other concession on this treaty
Looks like we are going for no. Writing.>>43854456Effectively limitless, if you manage to find her upper limit with some crazy idea she can build more. Most are Atheric empowered fusion reactors, but she could swap to the highly dangerous anti-mana reactors if you really need more in a short period of time.>>43854646You don't know her worship gains and use, it could be almost nothing for her.
>>43854844Ok.First things first. Create a simulacrum of our Protective Deity form and use the mana generators to fuel it.
>>43854876oh also start crafting a crystal. A massive fucking crystal. This crystal will be used to cast a Negative Fusion Laser large enough to damage gods.
“This offer is greatly stacked against me and my interests,” you reject her offer outright, “I cannot accept the cost that this would have on me.”“Too much ambition can lead to ruin,” Naras’ eyes seem to light up in response to your rejection, “Very well then, I will continue to watch you disrupt the established rule, when you need assistance I’m sure you will discover how to contact me.”Colors flash before your eyes as you return back to where you were, or at least your perception returns back to your body. You feel a sense of loss, as the artifacts of the Law return to their true owner.>Law Altar and Law Orb lost.Your group has gathered around you, concerned that you spaced out for a while. So you explain to everyone what happened Hestia seems content with your actions, the followers of the law are happy that they don’t have to ally with demons, and everyone else is waiting for you to decide the next course of action.>End the evacuation, return people to their homes>Explore the altered city>Talk with someone>Head back to hell>Go to Alfheim>Do something with your prisoners>Other>>43854876If you are trying to use the spell for this, it requires a corpse. But you are not dead?Hestia can attempt to research the protective field the Cube of Protection generates if that is what you are after.

>>43855268You could have asked Naras about that, that hook went unnoticed though.
>>43855302Nah, I think dear old dad should show up on his own if he is still around, if not, well, shit.
You look up at the white stone floating about the hole to the pit, the proto-dragon sleeping within is not awake so everything here seems to be safe.“Hestia, if you don’t mind lets release everyone. We can redeploy the armies if needed to maintain order,” you say.“Would you like for the city to undergo reconstruction as well?” Hestia asks in a suspiciously monotone voice, you can sense her already designing the new floors and buildings.Let Hestia rebuild the city – will delay research>Sure>Not nowSoon enough the city is full of life once more, your defensive alterations to the city has not gone over well among the rich people as you’ve altered their houses and views. Hestia has taken weapons from the administration’s army and has arranged them before you. You open a gateway to your realm to fetch Director Snow, you have some misgivings about letting her go but along with Director Burgess there should be no open revolts while you transition to being in total control. Director Snow is surprised at the state of the city, and she looks up to where the dragon is sleeping cautiously.However releasing her seems to be a smart decision, she is able to take control of the situation and return the city to a sense of normalcy. Director Snow is rather serious about her surrender and sticks near you much to the dismay of your girls, other than Evangeline. She only moves farther than a feet away from you when there is a sudden scream from the crowd of people now in the city. A man collapsed clutching his own head, blood pools around him as he dies, it happened so abruptly that you do not have time to try to save him.(1/2)
(2/2)“This was one of the Directors of the internal affairs division,” Director Snow explains to you after examining the corpse, “the wide scale deployment of psionic jammers has disrupted the psychic field that supports them.”“One of the directors?” you ask her.“They link as a hive mind of sorts, I know of at least a dozen bodies that they have assimilated,”In the crowd there are more screams as occasionally under the influence of the psionic jammers the internals’ disguises are disrupted and faceless men appear. Hestia’s drones are able to restrain the internals before they cause any damage.Scattered about the population you discover a few thousand internals, Hestia has them held in containment so that their abilities do not cause any harm. The followers of the law are interested in the internals and stop to ask you about them, which gives you a chance to talk to them about Iblis.“Such a creature able to spread its evil with a mere whisper I have never heard of,” Osanas tells you and his men agree, “if it is as truly wicked as you say then we would help you in defeating it.”>Have Hestia deploy psionic jammers everywhere>Try to interrogate your new prisoners>Talk with someone else>Head back to hell>Go to Alfheim>Do something with your prisoners>Other

>>43855792>Sure>>43855810>Have Hestia deploy psionic jammers everywhereWe need to research a Psionic Detection System. the current jammers will also weaken our own people and possibly suppress talented individuals.>Try to interrogate your new prisonerstime to mind rape a gestalt.
>>43855854Support, I'd love Osanas support with Iblis.
With Osanas and the other Law guys on your side for hunting down Iblis you turn your attention to the internals Hestia has captured. You return to the goblins city and endure a few minutes of competitive affection from the girls before heading off to the prison complex. The goat’s eyes follow you as you enter the building, Hestia moved it to the entryway to prevent causing the internals to go insane again.“Are you able to adjust the strength of the jammers so that the Director is not killed when caught in the field?” You ask Hestia through the drone accompanying you to one of the internal’s cell. “Lowering the effect too much may enable them to maintain their disguise and use of psionic abilities,” Hestia informs you.“As long as we can capture the infiltrators alive, better means of detecting the internals would help before re-building the city.”“There have been no successful attempts to change disguises in the segments of the city under my watch,” Hestia notes, “the internals have been careful to not make themselves suspicious.”You wonder just how many internals could have infiltrated already before you took control, while they no longer pose a great threat they can still be rather disruptive. Hestia opens a cell door as you approach, a man in a black suit sits on a chair in the middle of the room.Bees pour out of a horrible gash in his faceless head and swarm around you inflicting horrible pain, at least that is what he wants you to think. Hestia continuously adjusts the psionic jammer to be slightly stronger until the internal’s psychic ability is stopped.(1/2)
(2/2)Before you can even ask a question, his head explodes into a cloud of black mist.“These creatures are most unpleasant are they not Reginald,” the void conduit says, “your little paper golems were most amusing so let make a deal.”“Don’t set up any more of your machines that disrupt psychic power and in return I may answer some of your questions.”>Accept the deal (write-in some questions)>Don’t accept the deal>Deploy psionic jammers immediately>Don’t accept the deal, but don’t deploy jammers either>Try to get answers before considering the deal>Other

>>43856612>Try to get answers before considering the deal"What do you know that would even interest me? You're not secretly my father, are you? Somehow, I have trouble thinking about my mother flirting with a giant void dragon."
>>43856612Psionic Jammers to full Hestia. we have Void infected prisoners.
>>43856612We should probably seal that hole we made in the black anti-void stuff. we can manipulate that stuff now right?
Deal. Of course, we can just turn the ones we already set up into mobile ones, or crank up their area of effect for keks.Questions: tell us about the undead knight's god.Tell us about the remnants of the god who's power we took from the void.Tell us about itself and the slumbering proto dragon.Tell us about iblis.Tell us about our heritage.Tell us the funniest joke it knows,Tell us if it was the voice in our head before we learned to remove influence from the void.Tell us about internals and externals and the shadow dude.Tell us about the void, whats it likeTell us about the goblin lost in the void
>>43856795Yes, you could restore the seal now. Doing so may even buy you some time before not feeding the dragon gets you into trouble.
>>43856818Make the hole bigger instead, dump the dragon in it
>>43857080So you want to move the other proto dragon into the void, then seal it?
Rolled 6 (1d10)>>43857080If you make the hole that big then the prisoner would be able to easily escape, if you care.I guess you can try to be fast enough to seal it up.
>>43857097yep, just throw them in the ground and seal the hole
>>43857115Im thinking, move the dragon right above it, make the hole just big enough, then ram it through and seal that bitch up.
>>43857232Or put the dragon in a space altering container and dump that down there
>>43857243>>43857232>>43857219>thinking fucking with the proto-dragons will be easy
>Don’t accept, try to get answers anyway“Why did you pick now to speak with me?” You ask.“You appeared before my conduit, it was just timing,” the void conduit says.“What do you know that would even interest me?”“I have knowledge of many things.”“You're not secretly my father, are you?”The void conduit laughs, “no, no that is just silly.”“Tell me the funniest joke you know,” you demand.“Now you’re just fishing for information,” the void conduit tsks at you, “have you no shame Reginald?”“Just tell me.”“It doesn’t translate well to human understanding, but it goes something like this,” the void conduit says then makes a horrible ear splitting sound that reverberates throughout the room.And it is absolutely hilarious, it takes a few moments but your sense of sound enables you to understand that the ‘joke’ is a special sequence of tonal frequencies that causes a neurotransmitter imbalance. The imbalance just makes everything hilarious, but is otherwise not harmful.“That wasn’t a joke,” you complain when the sound ends, “psionic jammers to full Hestia!”The influence of the void fades as soon as the internal slumps over, unconscious from the impact of the jammer’s field.“I have recorded the sound for future use,” Hestia informs you.Well that interrogation didn’t work out very well, but if your interpretation is correct then every internal is a void conduit. It’s a masterful level of infiltration, but with your psionic jammers they will be unable to do anything.>Head back to hell>Go to Alfheim>Go visit someone>Attempt to seal the proto-dragon in the void (probably dangerous)>Other

“We are not ready to try and face this level of threat,” you tell Hestia, “it is time to train harder, and achieve the limits of our power.”“Good then shall we begin?” Hestia asks, and a flash of light puts you into the training room.“Wait!” You stop her from cranking up the gravity.“It isn’t just me who needs to train, bring in Izulu and Evangeline as well,” you say, “and ask Nantosuelta if she will assist please.”You kill time training your giant lizard and Ayla’s snake while you wait on Evangeline to finish up working with the power armor and her goblin troops. Surprisingly Nantosuelta agrees to train with you, she is feeling a bit weak after the encounter with just the proto-dragon’s eye despite the jewel you gave her. The reptiles motivation is heightened when they learn that Nana will be teaching them, Sazglangolor has to retire from training when Evangeline arrives since the little snake is too weak to endure the effects of heightened gravity.>55 vs dc 50 pass, vs dc 60 fail>Lizard rolled max for trainingIzulu is the first to fall prey to the gravity, she tried to work with you and Evangeline in human form but ultimately couldn’t cut it, but after wallowing in misery for a moment she remembers that she is a giant bird and transforms back. She is put through her paces for a while by Hestia flying in the intense gravity.(1/3)>>43859115Yes, you can do this if you want.Spend soul charges?>81>Spend some on other people>NoOther
The next to drop out is Evangeline, she can’t handle gravity past one hundred times higher than normal it is just too drastic a change for her. You keep gravity dialed in at one hundred times and heal Evangeline’s bone fractures so she can utilize her unique psychic ability to train everyone. It takes several days worth of training for both you and Nantosuelta to overcome Evangeline’s ability without resorting to raw power and when you finally do she gives up, the training is too intense for her to keep up for days at a time. Izulu despite being unable to beat Evangeline’s ability also gives up at the same time, the intense gravity is particularly hard for her hollow bird bones but she still learned a lot. So it comes down to you, Nantosuelta, and the giant lizard.The lizard is weakest of you three, but with its implant it can regenerate form nearly anything. Its determination is burning hotter than Nana as it tries to show off its skill of high gravity basking. Amused by its tenacity Nana teaches the lizard more about dragons, the side effect is that the lizard develops language skills and talks constantly about meat and basking.Fortunately the lizard’s strength comes to a limit as gravity continues to increase, with the two strongest left Hestia wastes no time putting gravity to its maximum value and activating the holographic training program that she improved with Director Burgess’ skills. The effect it devastatingly brutal, the holograms are able to move about without feelings the effects of the massive gravity leaving you as a sitting duck, Nantosuelta laughs at your predicament and the hellish training goes on. Until you figure out that Nana has been cheating this whole time, she has been using a skin tight focused domain to counteract the effects of gravity. While her focus and power improves her combat sense doesn’t, which is what enables you to overcome her in the end.(2/3)
>>43859211Sure spend soul charges
(3/3)>GainsSazglangolor perfects its lightning breath and psychic abilities. Due to Nana’s insight he also can now fly better, has higher health and mana, gains the ability to cast level one spells. Due to the lizard’s influence he also gains the ability to bask.Giant lizard’s stat cap increases to 200, becomes able to talk and gains Dragon basking 5. The giant lizard also gains 100 to physical stats from channeling your power in an intense environment that is normally beyond her. Plus Izulu gains improvements to her human form combat and 50 to physical stats, plus an additional 100 to constitution.Evangeline’s stat cap increases to 150 and gains 100 to physical stats from channeling your power in an intense environment that is normally beyond her. Her psychic abilities also increased to maximum.Nantosuelta gains only 10 to physical stats, but 75 to willpower and ki. She also gains patience from teaching the lizard and Sazglangolor – useful for hatchlings!Hestia gains amusement from your organic suffering!You gain dice improvement 3d15 -> 4d18. 40 to all stats, high speed movement via Celerity improves as well.And we can pause for a moment here, because other than soul charges you can attempt to use bestowal to improve your followers, if you want to.Suggested people to reward for their hard training ->Izulu>Evangeline>Giant lizard>Nana>Nah, let’s get on with it>Other

Izulu’s seems to be a bit more split, so have some lizard things while more people vote.New Giant lizard AbilitiesSummon Lizards: Rank 3This ability enables the Giant lizard to expend mana to call for more lizards. Results may vary from swarms of small lizards to smaller numbers of larger lizards.Soul bond: Rank 5This ability enables the giant lizard to temporally link the souls of its allies together forcing them to share their suffering (HP damage split between those linked). As a special lizard bonus the giant lizard can also permanently link other lizards into its psychic network. Temporarily summoned lizards linked in this manner become fully real and remain summoned permanently.Lizard Gestalt: Rank MAXThis ability unlocks the lizard’s gattai ability by revealing the true nature of its connection to all the other lizards. Depending on how many lizards join into the gattai the effect may be more or less effective. Synergy with soul bond enables the lizard to permanently fuse.Sensory Shielding: Rank MAXBy reaching the height of monstrous power the giant lizard has developed the ability to totally conceal itself from all forms of detection. This ability is unable to be used if the lizard is attacking, but its skill in this ability allows it to instantly hide if not being attacked.
Okay no one else is here, we'll go with the simple majority.Evangeline bestowal choose THREE> Luck Manipulation>Empathic Addiction>Flight>Gamble>Martial Mimicry>Zen>Lucky Star>Force-Energy manipulation (defensive)>Force-Energy manipulation (offensive)

Higher ranks may have additional effects.Titan’s thunder: Rank 3This ability creates a blast of electricity interlaced with deific power, anything it strikes that is aligned against Izulu’s patron (you) has a high chance of instantaneous death or destruction. Electricity generated by this ability is unable to be resisted or absorbed by any means. Higher ranks may have additional effects.Summon phoenix: Rank MAXIzulu has gained the ability to call forth her phoenix friends to fight with her. Phoenixes summoned by Izulu have the potential to be holy spirit beasts and thus much more powerful than normal.
>>43859391Just to remind everyone, having a base roll of 4d18 means that maxed out supreme badass would grant a total of 14d38.Assuming best of four, on average we would roll 315, with 2/3 of all rolls being within 30 points of that average.Currently our average is 48, with 2/3 of all rolls being within 7 points of that average

Higher ranks may have additional effects.Lesser Ascendency: Rank 0This ability will advance as per Ascendency, however Hestia will be linked to you as a lesser deity, giving you a portion of any worship she gains. Since she is already linked to your worship pool the two of you may freely exchange worship at anytime for no cost. Entropic shield: Rank 7This ability enables Hestia to project a field of pure entropic energy, those she wishes to protect are unaffected by the field and use it as sanctuary. Anything caught in the field will quickly suffer from proton decay and disintegrate away into nothingness. Abilities and spells may be prevented from operating within the influence of the entropic field.

You are not really sure what the pie is for or why you made it so you just leave it behind in the training room before you go to leave.There is a scraping sound as something takes it pie behind your back, but you don’t sense anything as having been there. Turning back to the pie you instead find a gift box tagged with your name.

>Attempt to sense draconic lifeforce on second layer of hell
After getting cleaned up from the training session and taking a rain check Nana’s invitation to some back to her room for a bath, you are fairly certain that she only has pools of lava in there anyways, you teleport to the first circle of hell with a twist of magical energy. The first thing you notice upon arriving is that there are succubi everywhere inside the city’s palace. Hestia’s drones have sealed the portals blocking them from using them, but the succubi don’t seem to care as they are too busy working in the service of their mistress. The succubi seem a bit angry with you and pointed ignore your presence.“Hestia why are the succubi inside the palace?” You ask.“Their leader was being as disruptive as possible without openly breaking any rules until she could live here,” a drone spins as Hestia talks with you, “I would have done something about it but they deliberately misinterpret your sending them here as permission to take over the palace.”“I guess I will need to speak with their leader then,” you shrug and head off through the palace looking for the largest signature of life.The succubi’s mistress predictably has stationed herself in the throne room, she turns her head to face you when you enter the room – drawing her attention away from her slaves. Knowing that Hestia doesn’t allow slavery, they are all willing ‘pretending’ to be slaves of course.“Ah the boring one deigns to visit me, what do you want?” The succubus angrily asks you.>Free her slaves>Evict her from the castle>Try to convert her>Try to convert her followers>Ask her about something>Kill her>Other
>>43863695"I am no fool, yet you seem to think otherwise. I know what you're doing, and you surely must know on some level that only those who are worthy should inhabit this palace. Now, I will give you two options - Apologize and change your ways immediately to suit the INTENT of my rules, or don't apologize, keep trying to do what you're doing, and end up being made an example of in front of every demon in the realm, in the most unpleasant way you can possibly imagine. Which will it be? First or second one?"Use a bit of mind reading to see if she thinks of something specific in regards to potential punishments.
>>43863695>Free her slaves>Evict her from the castleYou seem to have misinterpreted my request.Have Hestia teleport both us and the succubus outside of the city.
>>43863695>Try to convert her>Try to convert her followers>Free her slaves
So roughly get them to behave properly or else? I guess I can write this.>>43863816>mind read a succubus for punishmentsAre you trying to roll sanity and/or hit on her?
>>43863695>>Free her slaves>Try to convert her>Try to convert her followers
>>43864094Its what a succubus would consider bad, not fun
>>43863816I actually like this, support
“Let them go,” you motion to the slaves.“I don’t know what you are talking about, they are free to get up and leave whenever they want,” the succubus tells you.The slaves sit still, you can sense that their legs and arms are broken so they can’t move even if they wanted to. A quick pulse of healing energy fixes that and with a look of surprise on their faces the slaves suddenly run for their lives. The succubus hisses in irritation at this, she once again tries to influence you with lust magic, but her power is too weak to affect you.“You ignore the intent of both my request and the rules here, and yet you still feel worthy to live here above all the others,” you say.“I am the second queen of the succubi is it not natural for me to rule?” The succubus asks as she rises from the throne and stalks closer to you.“Apologize or I will make an example out you in front of everyone,” you threaten.“Either way would cause you to lose control of my girls,” the succubus boldly taunts you back.The other succubi has gathered around waiting, expecting something to happen here. The succubus mistress seems rather intent to have things her way or the highway, but she is right there isn’t much chance to have the succubi follow you since you are a man – or is there.>Make an example out of her>Call on your succubi to seize leadership from her>Just kill her>Other
>>43864388>Call on your succubi to seize leadership from her
>>43864388Any succubus that passes the required tests are allowed to move to Goblin City. Those that continue to disregard the intent of the laws of my realm will be either sent to a lower one or destroyed.I noticed we can Banish her to the third layer of hell. We could teleport after her so that we wouldn't damage our city with this fight.
>>43864388>>Call on your succubi to seize leadership from her
>>43864388"I should hope that they are not so unwise as to follow such a poor leader to their deaths. Not only did you send them against wyverns with such ineffective magic for such an opponent, but now you jeopardize not only your own chance for a place in such a luxurious society, but their places as well. You are truly the worst of the worst, and not even fit to lead yourself, let alone others. For as long as you live, you will be the lowest of the low, below the weakest and most pitiful demon in all of the nine circles. These succubi...they can flourish so much more without you. You've done nothing but hold each and every one of them back with your selfish, foolish endeavors."Basically charisma the fuck out of it and punish this bitch
>>43864388Any of are succubi Bestowalable?
>>43864567SupportCan we use worship to stip her of her powers, or curse her?
>>43864388>>43864567Seconding speech to win em over boss
>>43864594Sure, you have two in your group of succubi you could do it for, the leader and mage.
>>43864667then I'd like to add Bestowing the both of them to my vote >>43864442.
"I should hope that they are not so unwise as to follow such a poor leader to their deaths. Not only did you send them against wyverns with such ineffective magic for such an opponent, but now you jeopardize not only your own chance for a place in such a luxurious society, but their places as well.

You've done nothing but hold each and every one of them back with your selfish, foolish endeavors."You speech sends a shockwave through the minds of the gathered succubi, they may owe much to the succubus mistress but they are not blind to the points you’ve brought up. But even your incredible charisma isn’t enough to push them past their fear of her and her artifacts; they would listen to you if only she were gone. These succubi have been wild and free for a long time they are not eager to give up their ways just yet, so you continue with something that can convince them once and for all. Calling across the planes to you followers you ask your succubi to come to you, and with Hestia’s assistance a group of them teleport directly to your side.(1/2)
(2/2)Their fetish maid outfits are a bit over the top, you still have no idea why Hestia listened to the twins to make such clothing, but the succubi are a far cry from the ragged bunch being abused by the succubus mistress.“Master!” They cry out happily and bow to greet you.“These sluts!” The succubus mistress is angered even more by their presence, “traitors! You cling to a man, girls kill them!”Your succubi battle maids however take advantage of the throne room’s chokepoints to push the now more hostile succubi out and hold position, with you power guiding them the others don’t stand a chance. They also don’t seem to be fighting back at all but are just making a show of it to claim that they were trying later.You are left with just Lara and Lucina, the succubi mage and leader who guide the others for you.“I won’t last in physical combat with her, can you handle this alone Luci?” Lara asks her friend quietly.“With master watching how can I lose?” Lucina whispers back.>Let Lucina fight the succubus mistress>Ask Lara to fight instead>Have them team up on her>Fight her yourself>OtherAnd>Finish things here>Public humiliation in the arena
>>43865196Bestow them, and teleport them to the arena for PUBLIC HUMILIATION. They can decide alone if they want to team up or not.

Gamble is rank 7.No, sorry. It's rank 77.Wait. I've got it.It's actually rank 777.
“Hestia let’s make this into a special event in the arena,” you communicate your intentions across your bond and an instant later you are in the arena, the stadium filled and Ayla morphs into a larger form to yell at the crowd. Ayla’s introduction to the situation and stakes gets the demons in the crowd worked up into a frenzy.“Good luck master~” she winks at you before shrinking down and returning to her seat.“Now I believe that you two can handle this, so I’ll trust your judgment as to who will fight,” you reassure your succubi and with a gentle touch your let a little extra power grow inside each of them.Lucina – succubus leader bestowal choose THREE>Elemental form>Elemental weapon>Spell absorption>Ki strike>Weapon Mastery>Gain elemental power - Fire>Lightning>Dark>GravityPLUSLara – succubus mage bestowal choose THREE>Ice breath>Fire breath>Thunder cannon>Irresistible ki>Telekinesis>Paralysis Touch>Aura Sight>Gain elemental power - Fire + Water>Air + Earth

>>43865934By herself none, but as a ‘paladin’ she can channel all of yours. Giving her once specifically will greatly improve her control and power with it.
>>43865944When we steal an ability, can a follower not even channel it?
New Lucina abilitiesSpell absorption: Rank 6This ability enables Lucina to absorb spells. Any spells that are absorbed provide mostly temporary benefits. Lucina has a 3% chance, per rank in this ability, to absorb spells. 1% chance that Lucina’s maximum mana increases. Higher ranks in this ability may have additional effects. Currently known buffs: health or mana may be restored, gain temporary statistics, gain temporary health or mana, gain elemental resistances, become hasted, Weapon Mastery: Rank MAXLucina has inherited your ability to use any weapon, and extract the maximum usefulness out of any weapon. She also can use improvised weapons with ease.Elemental control: Rank 8A lesser version of your command over the elements this ability enables Lucina to have some measure of control over Gravity. Despite her low strength in controlling her elemental power her connection with you makes this ability vastly more powerful.New Lara abilitiesAura Sight: Rank 4This ability grants Lara the ability to see the flows of magical power directly, this allows her to know what spell an opponent She can get a sense of what a person is thinking and what is on their mind from the pattern of their mana. Higher ranks in this ability may have additional effectsParalysis Touch: Rank 3This ability enables Lara to paralyze with a touch, Strong beings may be able to overcome this effect. There is a high chance that when this ability fails the target is still temporally stunned.Irresistible ki: Rank MAXAll spells or spell like abilities now bypass all forms of damage resistance. Lara’s spells and spell like abilities now bypass damage immunities and absorption effects. Lara gains 5% bypass per rank in this ability. Lara gains the ability to utilize spells and spell like abilities in areas of anti-magic or silence.>>43865988They still could, but its less effective than if they were to have it themselves, unless they are in your host.
The two succubi bubble with happiness that you’ve given them power, but Lara still pushes Lucina forward to fight alone.“You fight her, Luci master is watching,” Lara encourages her while backing off.You decide to leave the succubi to themselves and move up to Ayla to see how she is doing, when you settle into place Lucina and the succubus mistress begin their battle. At first they are just sizing each other up and circle around each other. So you take the chance to chat.“So how are you doing?” You ask.“Master, today was so boring so far after we got done invading,” Ayla complains, “but you taught Sazglangolor a lot of things! He is so fast and can do stuff better it’s super cool- oh she’s in trouble!”Ayla draws you attention back to the arena where the succubus mistress is using a scale of some kind to empower her magic and blast Lucina with spell after spell. You wince has each and every blast manages to bypass the protective ability that Lucina just acquired.When the magic stops the succubus mistress switches to her lantern and launches gouts of flame that badly burn Lucina. Against another succubus Lucina’s lust magic just isn’t helping at all. The lantern starts to pull Lucina’s soul out and into oblivion, you can feel that its only the connection with you enabling her to hold on at all.The succubus mistress is impatient and resumes blasting Lucina with magic, this time however things go a bit better for Lucina. The magic warps on contact with her and the power of the spells are converted into a false layer of health that protects Lucina and Lucina’s speed seems to double.(1/3)
This faster speed however isn’t good enough, the succubus mistress is already larger and faster than Lucina which makes getting an attack in too difficult. The strength of the succubus mistress knocks Lucina down time and time again so soon enough the power from absorbing the spells is spent soon enough. Lucina is on her last legs and the situation seems unable to be recovered when she remembers that she got more than just that one power from you. Lucina distracts the succubus mistress with small stones collected from the ground, each thrown projectile slightly glows with your power as Lucina tries her hardest to achieve victory for you.The succubus mistress tires of these games and endures the attacks to charge forward and pin Lucina to the ground, rows of sharp white teeth gleam as the succubus mistress raises her lantern up to pull out Lucina’s soul. Which is what Lucina was hoping for, she focuses and wills gravity to lift the lantern away from the succubus mistress grasp, and then activate it on her. Lucina fights long and hard to keep the lantern focuses on pulling out the soul while using gravity to keep the succubus mistress in place.When the succubus mistress drops down limp, you can feel that Lucina is a bit sad that it had to turn out like this, but she still collects the artifacts in the hope that you’ll like them. The cheers of the demons fill the stadium, a come from behind story where the weaker one actually wins for once – a sight nearly unseen in the arena where strength rules.(2/3)

>>43866592Invest 1million worship into Deific blast: Rank 8 (Max 20) and another 200k into Acendant leadership.Put 100k into Blessing (?) of Nathair Sgiathach: Rank 1, I'd like to see how much it's able to go up.>>43866661I'd say so, she effictively works for us now.
>>43866623I don't see why not, worship is supposed to be used to improve ourselves in general. We even used it once in conjunction with a spell to grant ourselves a new ability. The one that became florakinesis.
>>43866592Convert Goblin City to worship us.How much worship does it cost?For exp,Florakinesis -> 722 remainingBlessing of the apple pie lizard -> 43 exp left over.
>>43866685Hmmm yeah you're right.
>>43866697Supporting the exp expenditure and the suggested worship use
Why not it could be a magical cloud fetus I'm sure that will work we can feed it easily
>>43866592>No, go ahead whenever you’re ready
>>43866697This cost is going to sound fairly insane and disproportanate, but if you pull it off the results will be impressive. The entire city is going to cost you about.550,000,000You may need to save up a bit more, or try to do it small segments at a time for a lesser overall effect.
>>43866592Research Suggesting:Take all the horns, pelts, skulls, corpses, and etc, we have in are loot that DNA can be collected from and clone whatever they belonged to.
>>43866796DAMN SONI wonder if higher florakinesis lowers it at allAnyways, i guess ill vote for 1 million deific blast, 1 million ascendant leadership, both permabuffs.
>>43866842will support, we got the dosh for it
We shold over our goblin city and connect it to the floating city we have now.We should start planning on how to manipulate the void prison and moving the other proto dragon into it. Do we even know how wide it is? Can we spacially fold it down?
>>43866796Just to be clear, if we successfully convert the entire city, it won't be as effective if we do it piecemeal as it would be to do it all at once?
>>43866974Sure I’ve given you a target, so you can get a special bonus if you can manage to do it all in one go.
So...Exp and worship distrib results?
>>43869222I so want to take another level in badass. That fucking massive >300 average roll...
Since this thing is in some kind of zombie form:Research ideas: A shield generator that draws its power from the user. Sources could include Faith, Mana and Health. A negative shield utilizing the same technique as other negative spells. ignores incoming normal spells and attacks but works as a regular shield against negative spells.
>>43869222Sorry about that I needed some sleep, I'll get the stuff complied in a bit for you guys since this is alive still.>>43870302Good ideas I'll add them in.
>Two million worship lost>Ability updatesFlorakinesis: Rank 5->7You can now request plants to grow special items for you, if you raise your intimacy with the plants unique things may be able to be obtained.Blessing (?) of Nathair Sgiathach: Rank 1 -> 4 -> 7For tempting fate by trying to steal the favor of the dragon gods you have been blessed by the fancy of the fae. With a lock of their hair you can now temporally grant another person a fantastic sylvan folk music theme song, the music lasts for 3d5 hours. Improving this ability will have unknown effects.Deific blast: Rank 8->26 (Max 30)This ability now bypasses 5% of deific energy resistances. Higher ranks increase its power.Ascendant leadership: Rank 17->30 (Max 30)When you personally lead followers in battle they gain 3% of your stats as health and mana. The massive investment into your leadership ability lowers the cost (in worship) of shielding your followers from death to a mere 5% of the lethal damage.
Okay i have a plan to win this shit.Generate an apple pie with a mechanical trap perfectly embedded within it, so that when the crust is breached, it generates a portal about ten feet above the pie and twenty feet wide. The portal will lead to a room we specially created that is solely designed to launch a gigantic twenty foot boxing glove through the portal to smash the pie and whoever disturbed it.Alternatively, when the pie is breached, it tosses a spacially compressed banana cream pie that uncompresses when outside of the apple pie.
>>43870923Alternatively...We chan use chaos creation to craft something with the descriptor "A prank that absolutely anyone would fall for, especially Nathair Sgiathach"
>>43870913Theme songs for everybody!Yay!Also, can we still turn purple while holding our breath? Basically we give someone a theme song, and then tell them we are going to hold our breath until it stops! We can hold our breath for like 15 hours right?
>>43871013Indefinitely. We can perfectly recycle air in our lungs.
>>43871013Ignoring special abilities that increase the limit to infinity, I'd ballpark your current breath holding ability to around four days.
Is Naras...Durga? Or some other god? Can't find shit on naras, boss.
Wonder why hestia hasn't raised any abilities this time
>>43871093I think the meta on this one may give away too much. The alliance would have been a better deal than anons expected though.>>43871126I just haven’t updated companions yet, she just got these new abilities too.
>>43871191I woulda been for it but i was doing black friday shopping, whoopsies...I mean, she would get some unique followers of ours. We would be bound to get some followers from her. We share information. She's bound to be tough enough to seriously help with the protodragons.And who knows what a deity-deity gestalt might be like. Only thing that could compare would be a proto-proto gestalt.
I just had the best fucking idea while I was in the shower.On the fourth layer of hell, let's first project our domain. As far as our domain goes, we will replace corpses with the most magically fertile soil imaginable, and tailor-make it to the carnivorous plant seeds.Then, we will take a bunch of carnivorous plant seeds and bolster the shit out of them, before we plant them. Then, we plant them, and continue bolstering them while they grow in the half a second it takes them to grow. We plant the entire field we made with them.Then, we diplomance the shit out of the carnivorous plants to get them to REALLY LOVE US and be pretty great followers. This is for the sake of getting whatever souls they take.Then, we ask them all to grow just one thing - a soul. The most powerful soul they can imagine. It doesn't matter if it's a collective effort, or if they each make their best soul. We tell them that they can take as long as they need to do this, and that they shouldn't feel rushed about making the soul.Then, we leave, and get loads of souls as the plants keep killing demons and shit. The plants will also begin to eat through the infinite amount of dead bodies that make up the floor, which will make them essentially infinite with their reproduction habits.I should note that when we bolster them, we definitely want to permanently bolster their DEFENSES against shit like fire, and magic in general. Maybe even bolster their REPRODUCTION - if they can grow in soil and dead bodies, maybe they can develop an attack to implant seeds in an opponent and have more allies literally burst out of said opponent. Or horrifically take over the opponent and twist them into a plant monstrosity, somehow.
So, what were the artifacts the succubus mistress had?Also, on the bright side, nana saving up so much EXP means she can pretty much instantly max out that bahamut shit. Good job, Nana!
In the pastebins, you forgot to change the ranks of deific blast and ascendant leadership. Just a notekeeping mistake. Host also only lists Hestia and Ayla. Director snow needs removed from our realm quip. There's at least one instance where "Temporally" is used instead of "Temporarily". I remember it happening a few more times, but I don't know if they were fixed or not.
Whoops! I think I fixed any mistakes. Exp for companions is done - tribe information, research, tech (companion implants included), and then social links are next up.
>>43874029Nano spent a lot for just one rank up. Did she convert a lot of exp into stat points or something?
>>43874701Hestia could be rank two ascendant, but hasn't yet
>>43874765Lucky Star: Rank 6This ability costs nothing to use but takes up Evangeline’s entire turn. It deals from 1 to 11,390,625,000,000 irresistible damage. Higher ranks may have additional effects....We could...easily be oneshot...Holy fuck
>>43874880that's not deific damage.
>>43874701Yes she has been distributing stat points, at multiplies of 800 exp. >>43874880Even if she maximizes the potential with luck and probability manipulation she isn't going to be one shoting very many things. For example your immunity to non-deific damage will override the 'irresistible' part of her ability there. Also the massive damage scale is at this point still meta, she just likes the ability because the stars look cute, not that she'll ever admit it!This was one of the abilities that was added from boosting bestowal, good job finding it.
>>43875070Can we exclude allies from the spell Aura of Death?
>>43875202We control magic to a super fine degree. We can make any spell do anything pretty much.On a different note: power word annihilate with nonlethal modifier. What happens?
I have a spell idea from a book series.Balefire: the things the lightning-like white streaks touch are burned out of existence, even through some measure of time. How far back they are erased is dependent on how much power you put into the spell.For example, enemy kills ally. Five minutes from then, you use balefire strong enough to burn him out to six minutes ago. Ally is alive again, because enemy did not exist to kill ally at five minute mark.Very useful, but very dangerous and should be used sparingly.
>>43875070how do altars change how magic behaves? is it cheaper? I ask because it would be interesting to create contingency spells while in a spell altar and make them activate upon intent of releasing the spell. Might allow us to cast spells that might otherwise kill us.
Research: psionic tracking/sensing/sensors.Psionic nullifier.Psionic amplifier.Psionic inversal.
>>43875459I’ll assume you mean the magical empowerment zones Hestia researched - % increase to the spell’s effect base on how much effort Hestia is willing to put into them, so somewhere around 2-10x normal for now.>>43875367That sounds like the sort of power that goes to your head and gets your hand blown off.
Maybe we should channel worship directly into our kingship amulet...
>>43875733Might be interesting. First deific artifact we create?if it works we should make a few weak deific artifacts so that Hestia and us can science out a way to figure out deific spells.
>>43875681I believe I know what the balefire the anon is referring to. I can only say that it is a bad idea. It's the kind of thing that eventually makes reality say "Fuck you, I'm outta here", and existence ceases to be.
>>43875681>>43875810http://wot.wikia.com/wiki/BalefireIt's fine, what could possibly go wrong with annihilating parts of reality?
So what does dragon basking do?Also, do lizzie's improvements transfer (either in full or slightly) to other lizards?
>>43875681I would like to propose a Very Long time plan: Convert Goblin City.550 million isn't going to be gained in a day (yet).
pic related is how iblis started up
Max rank bodyfluid manipulation.
>>43871191I actually didn't get to vote on that, I'm still a tentative no, but I'm open to it in the future if it wasn't a one time deal.
>>43881402honestly this is a high risk high payoff deal.if we somehow manage to beat the protodragons without other deities help we can consume those souls and grow stronger than when allied.
