After conquering the nearest city, your small empire has become sturdy enough to be more or less self sufficient. The farmers grow enough food, and the merchants, though hard pressed without outside trade, have adjusted to the point that the local economy is stable. What's more, your lieutenants have made full recoveries, and are excited to hold a ritual so dark and evil, only the truly demented dare partake in it's fiendish rites. A morning meeting.You sit at the head of the conference table. At your right is Vanessa, you're beautiful and manipulative daughter, who gives you a heart shaped card every father's day. On your left is Duncan, the brown-nosing assassin who has made attempts and failures to follow in your footsteps. As Duncan shuffles a stack of papers addressing the more mundane topics of evil rule, Vanessa moves on to more interesting business."As you know, Daddy, Marigold is a bit of a stand out in the minion pool. As much as I hate to say it, I recommend promoting her. I think if the minions see opportunities for advancement based on performance, it will motivate them to go above and beyond.""Yes, well, that's all good in theory." Duncan's voice is as effeminate as ever. "But it might also lead to sabotage and infighting. I think it's best to keep the minions on a tight leash, so as not to inspire ambition amongst them."Ultimately, it's your call. You lean back in your swivel chair and contemplate the options.>Make Marigold "Captain" of the Minions>Make Marigold Puppet Mayor of the city>Make Marigold a Lieutenant>Leave her where she is, maybe give her a mug or a plaque>OtherPrevious Thread: http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive/45420538/Twitter, for play times and story bites: @BBEG_Questman
>>45534742>Make Marigold "Captain" of the MinionsShe's due for a promotion, but not Lieutenant level. Yet.
>A morning meeting.>Make Marigold "Captain" of the Minions
>>45534813>>45534892You decide to create and subsequently fill the position of Captain. Vanessa makes a note of it."I'll have a more suitable costume made up for her. I'm thinking black leather. But then, I'm always thinking black leather aren't I?""Sir, I also want to bring up the matter of that boy you assigned to me. While I was mending, I started him on simple strength training and a protein and calcium rich diet. He's growing like a weed now. I don't think he's ready for combat, but he's eager to serve."On the subject of Marigold's outfit:>Keep it simple, just add an accent or two>Make it intimidating>Make it eroticOn the subject of the boy:>Keep training him for now>Allow him to join the minions>Other
>>45534958>Keep it simple, just add an accent or two>Keep training him for now
>>45534958>>Keep it simple, just add an accent or twoShe's merely Captain of the grunts, she doesn't deserve an intimidating outfit yet, and especially not a sexy one.>Keep training him for now
>>45535034>>45535112Vanessa begins doodling some concepts, and Duncan moves on to the next order of business."The merchants are upset about the lack of incoming goods. Unfortunately, we're landlocked at the moment, and unless we control a port there's no way we can obtain anything from outside our boundaries without stealing it. The local lords and landowners refuse to deal with us, since we usurped the land we have by force. I strongly recommend marching to the sea, even if we only have two thousand fighting men ready to go. The only risk I foresee is putting all of our eggs in that basket, and leaving our lands defenseless."Duncan speaks true on all accounts. It would be a great boon to have some control over the sea, but it's risky to make that grab.>March for the ocean with all your men>March with half your men>Remain here, and dig in your heels>Other
>>45535232>March with half.Also, can we call that hotline again and get some sea demons on our side?
>>45535232>>Remain here, and dig in your heels
>>45535232>March for the ocean with all your menFortune favors the bold. Also, the enemy will never expect us to be stupid enough to abandon the city we've just conquered. It's brilliant!
>>45535232>March with half your menAlso call up the demon hotline, or hire some mercenaries or something.
>>45535337You decide to split your forces in half and make for the coast. It will be tough, but you'll find a way.As you break up the meeting, you ask Vanessa to set up something with the Demon Temp Agency and see about getting someone in for the trip. You make your noon rounds of the fortress, checking up on this and that as you plan your next move. The minions here seem content enough, and Marigold is excited to hear about her new position. The others pat her on the back and praise her hard work. It's around this time you hear the warning bells begin to ring throughout the fortress.You rush to the walls to see what's happening, and when you look down over the expanse of tasteful wasteland surrounding your home, you see a field littered with groaning and battered minions, all lying prone in the dirt as a familiarly bald fellow whirls like a dervish between them. He spots you soon, and raises the forefinger of his free hand, that which is not throttling the throat of a minions, to point at you."You! I've been seeking you out for days! I demand a rematch, for my honor!" He tosses the minion aside and takes a fighting pose.>"No thank you, please leave.">"And what do I have to gain?">"You're so eager to feel the pain of a broken back so soon after the last one?">"Very well.">Other
>>45535337Goooooood ideaKrakens, yes.Backing tihs.
>>45535499>OtherWe're heading out on a little errand, how about you prove how much stronger you've gotten in the days you spent searching for us an come along?If you're still alive by the end of our trip, you get your rematch.
>>45535532This, I like this. Backing this.Didn't he say he'd serve us if we won last time? Remind him of our deal.
>>45535532Yeah this sounds good. Also tell him to stop beating up our minions or else they'l form a union or something
>>45535532I like this.
>>45535592You warn him that further accosting of your men may result in headache inducing paperwork, which he doesn't seem to fully comprehend. At any rate, you strike a deal with him. Should he help you, you will agree to a rematch. He seems to chew this over for a long time, probably wrestling with his silly ethics or something tedious like that, before finally agreeing, and coming out of his stance. You meet him in the ground, and shake to seal the deal.You introduce him to Vanessa, since Duncan is already familiar with him and his craft. The two get along about as well as oil and water, but they seem to hold their hostility toward one another second to their will to aid you.You spend the next few days preparing for the trip. Vanessa informs you that the best she could get from the agency is a few imps to keep the fortress clean while you're away. It seems the demand for contracted forces has been extremely high thanks to another political power struggle in the underworld. It happens from time to time, and it's always annoying.After making final preparations, you ready the men you hope to take and begin making for the city to grab a few last minute things. With you are Vanessa, Duncan, and the eastern man, who goes by the name Shen. Marigold is assigned to keeping an eye on the fortress, but you suspect the forces you have will suffice.>Travel heavy with food and wagons>Travel modestly, with saddlebags and a few carts>Travel light, foraging and hunting
>>45535711>Travel lightWe're less likely to be found, and minimises losses should some predicament arise, which will of course happen.
>>45535711>Travel light, foraging and huntingNo need to bother with supply lines. We must move quickly and strike before the enemy sees us coming. Afterwards we'll feast on whatever the port city has waiting for us.
>>45535711>>Travel heavy with food and wagonsWere going for a siege right? Were going to need the extra supplies.
>>45535711>>Travel modestly, with saddlebags and a few cartsTravelling heavy will make us slow and more likely to be found like an anon said, but travelling too light might leave us ill-equipped.Might as well go wtih the middle ground.
>>45535761Actually changing my vote to this, if we can sneak up on them we won't need the extra supplies.
>>45535760>>45535761You tell the men to take only what they can carry on their backs, and begin marching northeast toward the Cold Coast. There you will gain access not only to large trade ports, but delicious cold-water delicacies like crab and the ever rare and deadly lobstrosity.The march is rough and taxing. You manage to get two good meals a day, but you miss your pantry more and more with each muffinless morning. It isn't until the third week that you meet with any form of resistance, which comes to you as a town militia, armed with little more than farming tools and the occasional hunting crossbow. Despite their steadfast loyalty to their lord, they are but an insect to a thousand trained men, an assassin, a succubus, and a man of the eastern arts. Still, to ignore them is to invite danger later on.>Send Vanessa to "convince" them of your good will>Send Duncan to "persuade" their leaders>Send Shen to "beat them up with his fists">Let the troops have the town>Other
>>45535867>>Send Vanessa to "convince" them of your good willTry to win without fighting. We need to save our strength for the REAL fight.
>>45535867>>Send Vanessa to "convince" them of your good willMake Daddy proud.
>>45535904Also does anyone else think from the last thread that Merigold has a thing for us? She seemed to enjoy the whipping we gave her.
>>45535928She may just be a sadomasochist.
>>45535897>>45535904Am I the only one who is against pimping our own daughter out? She's a half succubus (and half... what exactly? What are we?) but she's still our little girl damn it!
>>45535928Seems she's just into that stuff.Being a plain farmer girl, you probably repress a whole lot.
>>45535897You give Vanessa the task of negotiating your way through the town. She seems delighted to have a chance to play with the smallfolk, and begins preparing immediately. With her she takes only a bowl, a drum, and Duncan. With a snap of her fingers, her suit shifts, becoming a flowing and rather revealing dancer's ensemble, made from silk and sheer fabric, and finished with gold bangles, chains, and sandals. You see her off one late night, and set up camp out of sight as you wait.It takes only three days for Vanessa to return, not only with a satisfied expression and a slightly round belly, but a chest full of gold and jewelry. Duncan seems quite exhausted, but assures you that the town is now as friendly as as a tired kitten.You and your men march straight through town the next day, and look on at Vanessa's work. Half of the place seems abandoned, and the remaining people merely go about their days dreamily, as if in a daze. Some of them recognize Vanessa and Duncan, and aren't even deterred from conversation when a minion shoves them into the muck. Vanessa plays with them just a bit, promising to return from her trip very soon.>Ask what she did>Head pats for a job well done>Double time to make up for the days you lost>Other
>>45536052>>Head pats for a job well done>Ask what she did
>>45536052>Head pat and question comboShe did good, but we need to know:a) whether the method can be duplicated andb) what resources she needed to do it
>>45536040When I voted for that, I don't think OP had 'whore yourself out' in mind for that option, I figured it was just succubus mind fuckery. I wouldn't vote for anything too vulgar, she IS our little girl.>>45536052>>Ask what she did>>Head pats for a job well done
>>45536052>>Ask what she did>>Head pats for a job well done
>>45536080You ask Duncan exactly what happened. He is slightly embarrassed to recount the tale."We arrived in the dead of night at the inn. She put on a little show for the local drunks, and earned us a room to stay in. The next morning, she danced in the town square, quite adeptly, and earned us a bit of coin. The local men were taken with her, naturally, and the local women with me, as I was forced to beat that damned drum bare chested. She was invited to dance for the mayor, and was able to charm him quite easily into handing over the treasury. The next two nights she spent giving any who would pay two gold coins a "private dance". When she got them alone, she merely had to ask and practically handed her their souls. The men came for her, and the women for me. All in all, she must have feasted on three dozen of them. The last day was nothing but her convincing them to allow us all safe passage."An inefficient plan, but an effective one. You decide to reward Vanessa with some tender affection over dinner, which she appreciates.The remainder of the march is rather uneventful. You even manage to take a small fort by surprise, which would likely have been impossible if not for Vanessa's shrewd tactics. When you finally come within range of the port town, you set up camp a few miles down the road and hold a war meeting to determine the plan.>March in and claim the land as yours, since they have only a basic defense force>Send Duncan to meet with the local cutthroats, and offer them coin for cooperation>Send Vanessa to dance>Send Shen to do something, who cares>Other
>>45536281>>March in and claim the land as yours, since they have only a basic defense forceTime to assert our dominance as the alpha warlord in these parts.
>>45536281>>March in and claim the land as yours, since they have only a basic defense force
>>45536281>>Send Shen to do something, who caresHe still has to prove himself.Besides, what if they only WANT us to think they're weak, but they have a trap waiting for us?
>>45536281>Send Shen to do something, who cares
>>45536536You tell Shen to prove his strength here and now. He is surprised, and a bit confused, but after some thought he seems to come up with a plan. He departs empty handed, confidently striding towards the town. You watch and wait for his return.When he does come back six or so hours later, he kneels before you with bloody hands, and a severed head. He presents it to you proudly."The most powerful man in the town, Daniel the Claw, has come to greet you. His two hundred underlings wished to visit as well, but they were indisposed." Standing, Shen tosses the head into the dirt and grins. "It was a decent workout, I must say, but now the town knows the strength you command. Even the militia has taken to tucking their tails tween their legs and burying their heads in the sand."The head lays on the ground, tongue flopping, flies buzzing about it. Shen does good work, at least. And he is shockingly cruel.>Sucker punch him>Commend him>Other
>>45536606>Sucker punch himWhy? No reason. He did a good job. We just can't stand his guts.
>>45536635>>Sucker punch him>>Commend himCall him a beautiful basterd and drag him to his feet, then put an arm around him and tell him he's going to go far in this business.
>>45536606>>Commend him>>45536635We're professional. That's not professional.Besides, we should make people WANT to work for us, not hate us and plot against us later.
>>45536606I like this guy, we should keep him>Commend Him
>>45536606>Other*Remain silent*The hazing begins
>>45536606>>Commend him>>45536684Maybe something like this, but less violent.
>>45536684You deliver a hard cross to Shen's temple, knocking him into the dirt. He goes down like a sack of turnips, and you laugh. You tell him he's done well, but unfortunately he's just wasted his chance at a rematch. You'll be happy to offer a third one, of course, so long as he sticks around. Even he can't help but be amused by this jackassery. The march into town is easy as pie, but you decide to spend a few days getting things organized. The ships coming and going have no preference for who they hand their goods to or get them from, so long as they get their money. The locals, stricken with fear, offer no resistance, at least not openly. The only real turbulence comes from the remaining criminal element, who seek to fill the power vacuum created by Shen's brawl with the largest gang in town, but even they are quickly quashed.You begin enforcing your laws on the people, who take to them as well as the last town, with the exception of the mandatory military service. They had no army before, and seek no violence now.>Enforce the law>Let them be, you require no cowards>Other
>>45536801>>Enforce the law
>>45536801>Let them beBeing a prick to strangers is petty, and petty we are not.
>>45536846But we are a prick>Enforce the law
>>45536801>Enforce the lawThey may not like it now, but having a dedicated army in these times? Kind of a requirement for a lasting kingdom. Otherwise they'll just get rolled over by the next big guy with an army...Kind of like how they did right now, to be honest.
>>45536801>Enforce the Law
>>45536801>Enforce the lawKill them. Kill them all. Every last gangster. Every last smuggler. Every last pickpocket. Every last con artist. Kill them and display their corpses on the town square. Demonstrate your strength and make anyone think twice before dissenting against your rightful rule.
>>45536801>>OtherTry to convince them by telling them the many fruitful benefits of working with usIf we just keep forcing civilians who want to fight into our ranks, then we'll just have a weak army full of cowards who would likely defect the second they see a good opportunity. >>45536889No, we're professional.The only times we've ever really acted like much of a prick was when the situation really called for it.
>>45536891This is kind of a really good point.Tell 'em they might as well join a strong, stable army like ours than be forcefully taken in by some other shitty guy, or just outright killed.
>>45536837You come down hard on the townsfolk, and before a week is out you have at your disposal nearly three thousand young men, mostly retired criminals, shaking in their boots. Whilst things are being settled in town, you decide to whip them into shape to defend your new territory.>Have Duncan train them, making them more tactical warriors>Have Shen train them, making them stronger warriors>Train them yourself, at the cost of direct control over the town's adjustment>Have Vanessa train them, making them more loyal
>>45536955Speaking of other shitty guys, what are our lands like right now? Do we border any major kingdoms? Are we just some small pocket in another larger kingdom's lands? A map or something would be nice.
>>45536980>Have Vanessa train them, making them ore loyalA strong or tactical army is all fine and dandy, until they betray you. Lead an army of loyal soldiers, they'll fight harder and die for you.
>>45536980>Have duncan train themPhysical training will take too long, god knows how long it took shen to get that strong.Plus, a smart and weak army will always beat a powerful, single-minded one.
>>45536980>>Have Vanessa train them, making them more loyalLoyalty is best for right now.
>>45537004>>45537017I agree with these gentlemen of African descent: loyalty is the way to go now.
>>45536980>>Have Vanessa train them, making them more loyalLoyalty is the most important thing
>>45536984The red dotted line will be us, the other colors are major powers, except the silver, which is mostly free lands. Expansion will start getting tougher now
>>45537105You tell Vanessa to begin training the new minions. She doesn't know much about combat, but she knows everything there is to know about persuasion. A few sweet words here and there, as well as some punishment and reward reinforcement, and within a month the new troops are ready to march into the mouth of hell for her, and by extension you. With things wrapped up, you are ready to make for home. The locals supply you with the food you'll need for the trip, but as you ready the carts you receive dire news from Duncan."My dark lord, the nation to our north has heard of our expansion, and they seek to crush us before we can threaten their borders directly. I can't say for certain their numbers, and I believe them to be fewer than ours certainly, but they have cavalry, and ships. Worse, I know for certain that the great nations often employ mighty warriors as commanders. Should we meet one of them, you would be the only one able to defeat them soundly in combat." By now, Vanessa and Shen have gathered round too. Things are about to get rough, but you must be decisive.>Fortify the town and hold out here>Meet their troops inland, and use your numbers to win>Take to the sea, risking the citizens to save the port>Try to negotiate>Other
>>45537247>DuncanWe're still not talking to him, are we?SAY NOTHING.
>>45537247>>Try to negotiateIf that doesn't work, then..>>45537247>>Fortify the town and hold out here
>>45537247>OtherHire an army of mercenaries with our current funds to meet them in the field, while we send our actual forces around by sea to strike their land and capture land close to our borders.
>>45537247>Meet their troops inland, and use your numbers to winDo we have any good ambush spots?They still have to move through our territory to get to us. Get some locals who know the land to lay traps and prepare ambushes to weaken their army before we fight them.
>>45537308We don't have ships, and I don't think we'll have time to build any.Are you guys sure you want to move in land though? If we do, we'll probably lose the port town that we JUST got.
>>45537247>>Fortify the town and hold out hereOur new troops will be more likely to fight harder and better since they'll be fighting to defend their homes here in the port. The other anon is right, too. If we abandon the Port now, then we'll have to go to the trouble of retaking it again later. If we defeat them inland, they'll probably retreat to the port town and fortify it to defend against us.
>>45537247>Say nothing to Duncan>Fortify the town and Hold outWhen cornered an animal fights harder.Also hi op.
>>45537283You look Duncan dead in the eyes and say nothing. This goes on for over an hour, until Vanessa finally takes charge of the situation.She decides to try and meet with the leader of the approaching force herself, bringing a gift of gold and booty to attempt to bribe him from the enemy's side. Before long, she is off and you are left to secure the town as best you can.A day passes. Three days pass. A week passes, and on the eighth day you hear word from a minion. A message has arrived, in the form of a box. When you open it, inside is a letter, which you unfold."Dear Sir or MadamYour succubus is our prisoner. Her efforts to charm us were for naught, and now her blood flows into our cups like wine at the solstice. If you want her back, come alone to the Cavern of Carrion, northwest of the town. Bring no weapons and no men, or she will die in a way most painful. Sincerely yours, Shaka, general of the 13th battalion.PS, she cries for her "daddy" every night. Please give him our regards."You crumble the letter in your hand and look back into the box. There is a lock of raven hair, and a vile of demon blood. They aren't bluffing.>March in full force>Go alone>Bring Duncan and Shen>Remain in town, it's an obvious trap>Other
>>45537513>Go by yourself>Keep Duncan in charge of reinforcements or defending the town. Have shen... do his weird ninja bullshit since he can just disappear.YOU DO NOT FUCK WITH DADDY'S GIRL....Nor drink her blood if your a 'mighty' champion.
>>45537513>March in full forceBut keep an eye out for an ambush.Under no circumstance do they get away with this.
>>45537513>>Go aloneTime to fuck shit up and show EVERYONE that NOBODY messes with daddy's little girl.>>45537550Shen isn't a ninja, he just happens to be able to go really fast sometimes
>>45537513>Go aloneWe can take 'em, right?
>>45537513>>Go aloneHave reinforcements ready to charge once we safely secure Vanessa.
>>45537583I thought he just flat out disappeared when we looked back the other thread? Thanks for clearing that up anon I thought he had some weird monk/ninja training. just monk tho
>>45537609Nah, it was like in DBZ where they'd be moving and fighting so fast that they'd disappear and reappear and shit
>>45537665I fucking love this quest more and more with that explanation.
>>45537550You smash the box with a heavy stomp, and tell Duncan to keep an eye on the town while you're away. Having not read the letter, he is very confused, but does not question your decision.You march alone with nothing but some dried meat and water, and arrive at the specified location within two days. The cavern itself is dug into a large hill, and the entrance is a clear indication of how it obtained it's name. The stone and soil form a sort of mouth, and the entrance is littered with animal bones. Likely a large predator lived here, or at least did once, since you've seen no tracks on the way here.You stare into the dark maw, unable to sense but the faintest life energy within. You suspect if Vanessa is inside, she's alone. If not, then someone is waiting for you.>Enter boldly>Enter cautiously>Other
>>45537688>Enter Cautiously. Can't let ourselves become dirty.

>>45537688>>Enter boldlyWe gotta show them that ain't NOBODY mess with us OR our daughter
>>45537688>Enter boldlyInitiate papa wolf mode.
>>45537727You step into the cavern with all dignity and pride, stepping on snapping bones and kicking any rock that dares to sit in your path. The smell of mildew and blood are heavy in the air, and the further you go the less light there is to see by. You consider summoning your sword for its flames, but before you get a chance the ground collapses beneath you, revealing a pitfall. You slide down a tunnel, and exit through a wall deep below, landing in a shallow pond fed by trickling water from above. You look around, but the room is pitch black. Suddenly, a torch lights, stuck into the far wall with a nail. It illuminates Vanessa, pinned to the wall by cold iron rivets in her palms and feet. Her blood streams down her arms, toward her navel, and drips into the water. You call to her, but she is unconscious.>Approach>Call out again>Other
>>45537825>OtherSummon the sword, check surroundings. There's no way she's been left unsupervised.

>>45537825>Other HELLO SWORD HOW ARE YOU?!
>>45537825>otherGet sword out and cautiously check the room
>>45537841You reach out a hand, and in a surge of hellfire your sword appears, settling in your grip. The flames that dance along its blade light up the area around you, revealing not just the water and stone floor, but a veritable graveyard of human and animal bones piled and scattered all over. You scoff, and begin approaching Vanessa, but stop when you her a deep cackle from the dark."Welcome, friend. I'm glad you made it, I was beginning to worry about your loyalty to this girl." Your eyes narrow, and settle on a dark figure emerging from behind a stalagmite. He is clad in dingy robes that wrap around him like a mummy, and his face if obscured completely save for a pair of piercing blue eyes beneath a hood. "Tell me, is her father distraught to know of her fate? She misses him so, you see." The man, you presume Shaka, reaches out a hand and runs his knuckles down Vanessa's face, feeling her hair. "I suppose he is loyal to you? What a fool, to send an innocent child to a place like this." Shaka laughs, raising his arms as if to present the dark cavern to you.>"You will die here.">"I am her father.">"Hand her over, and your fate will be swift.">Attack without words>Other
>>45537999>OtherTurn off our fire sword then charge forward, tackle the fucker when he's blinded just as much as we are. Take him to the ground and pummel him.

>>45538065I like tihs anon's way of thinking, backing this. Scream out, "WHY ARE YOU HITTING YOURSELF?! WHY ARE YOU HITTING YOURSELF?!" as we do
>>45538027You say nothing, and plant your forefoot in the ground, using it to launch yourself forward. The ten meters between you shrinks fast, and your aim a lunge at his heart. Naturally, everything must go wrong, and as you approach, the water ripples, and from beneath the surface emerges a pile of bone, which twists and forms into a rough, six-fingered hand. It catches you, and wraps around your body, attempting to crush you. You peer over and see Shaka losing himself in sickening laughter."Say hello to the 13th battalion! My own pride and joy, made all the more powerful thanks to this precious girls demonic blood! Stand proud my creations, and greet our guest!" Shaka continues to laugh, raising a golden totem in one hand, waving it to jingle the small chimes hanging from the end. All around you the bones of fallen creatures rise up and arrange themselves into twisted effigies of men. Once formed, they begin approaching you and adding themselves to the hand that grips you. You struggle to break free, but Vanessa's blood truly has empowered them, and you'd wager Shaka is quite talented in his own right. Your options are few, but you must act quickly.>Try to wake Vanessa, she might be able to help>Teleport out of your armor, losing it but freeing yourself>Summon all your strength to break free>Use the most desperate lifeline you have Vanessa's Mother

Vanessa's mother. Dire straits call for dire solutions. With demonic whips.
>>45538394Fuck they might even revoke our paperwork.
>>45538275>LifelineI also add this to my vote
Lifeline. This seems like the kind of point where we die and this ends if we fuck up.
>>45538578Yeah, that's waht I was thinking too.Since this isn't one of those quests where the outcome of our actions is decided by dice rolls, then I'm guessing the outcomes were already pre-determined by OP and choosing the wrong choice could equal GAME OVER
>>45538457>Fanart>Of my questI'm seriously so happy, I never thought I'd reach this point
>>45538628This is a pretty sick quest, anon. It's well-deserved.
>>45538657I concur. Good quests are always fun to participate in though they make me jelly
>>45538709Why are you jelly?
>>45538735Because I'm shit at running quests myself
>>45538746 are you running any right now
>>45538746I'm sure you'll get the knack of it someday, anon. I sucked shit at drawing for a good decade.
>>45538746 What quest did you run Anon? And you got more balls then me anyway. I wanted to run one but 3spoopy5me
>>45538632You quiet your mind, and try to reach into the deepest pits of fear and anguish hidden within your demented psyche. Hidden away beneath layers of darkness and hatred, lies a tiny kernel of terror. This kernel pops like so much corn, and gives way to a wave of agony that overcomes you, and summons forth the Mistress of the Ninth Circle of Hell, Queen of Pain and Mother of Malady herself.She emerges from the water, which burns like oil at her touch. He skin is red as blood, and smooth as cream. Her hair is black as the depths of the dark sea, and silken to the touch. Her eyes are piercing red, and draw you in like an animal to succulent bait. Her figure is so stunning, to behold it is to invite madness, and her custom-tailored suit fits like a glove of only the finest cotton.As her heeled shoes touch the surface of the water, sending ripples throughout the underground pond, her eyes dart around the room. She spies Vanessa, then Shaka, then you. Her scowl is powerful enough to give even the undead constructs pause."Hello, dear." She spproaches you calmly, her hips swaying so hypnotically you can't take your eyes from them unless it's to glance at her full lips."I see you've gotten yourself into yet another mess. I suppose this is the last time, just like the last two last times?" You have nothing to say, but you do have a throbbing and guilty erection. "Hm. Either way." She turns to Vanessa, and with a wave of her hand the cold iron rivets fall away, releasing your daughter, who falls forward and is then suddenly cushioned by the air itself. She floats slowly into her mother's arms, who carries her like a babe."This is strike three. I knew letting her live with you was a mistake. She's coming back with me and Glen." Fuck Glen. "I'll have my assistant come for her things tomorrow morning.">"I'm sorry.">"At least get me out of this!">"This isn't my fault!">Other
>>45538850>OtherY'know what? She can't baby our daughter forever, and what about strike one or two? This is the first time she has been hurt under our employ, she can go FUCK herself for jumping straight to strike 3.We will see her in court.
>>45538850>OtherIsn't she out of university? Doesn't she have a right to live with us if she so chooses?
>>45538850>I'm sorry>At least get me out of this!Try to be charming. Or at least get her to spread Shaka over the wall for hurting our daughter.
>>45538850>>45538908Also yeah, our child is legally an adult as far as I'm aware. She is actually illegally taking our daughter against her wishes, and therefore can be arrested and taken to court.Our daughter lives where she wants.
>>45538850>Other"B-but I'm LAWFUL evil! I have the best lawyers this side of the Styx at my disposal! You'll hear from them!"
God fucking damn it Anons.>>45538850>She's currently being employed by us with signed paperwork so she can choose to live there willingly on free time but when its time for work she is with us.>"However I must say, you are still as Scarsoualing as before my Love. Tell me how has work been?" YOU ALL FUCKED UP.
>>45538906>>45538908>>45538934Is this really the time to fight over custody?Although Vanessa is an employee of ours...
>>45538908>>45538934She seems pretty high up in the hell rankings. It's going to be tough as shit to find a good lawyer and an unbiased judge.
>>45538850>>"I'm sorry.">>"At least get me out of this!">>"This isn't my fault!"
>>45538973It doesn't matter how high ranking she is, our daughter is a legal adult. She is basically kidnapping her, under the law, if she forcefully takes her away.
>>45538934>implying rules matter when you're that high on the food chain
>>45538850>"This isn't my fault, but so long as she is safe.">"I expect she will be soon to return, on her own terms."
>>45538850>at least get us out of this!
>>45539003I know, but what I'm saying is that she can most likely bend the court to her will, either through her position or her outrageous succubus sex.
>>45538762>>45538774>>45538796I ran a few about half a year ago. I want to start one again as soon as I muster my courage
>>45539037Well we were once under the employ of a much more successful BBEG, we likely have a number of contacts we can call on to fuck her over just as much in court.
>>45539043 what were the quests? and good luck on future ones
>>45539054Let's hope the judge can resist the succ.We should probably focus on that necromancer, try and get the locket somehow.
>>45539043That's great anon. Trust me when I say the only way to improve is to do it over and over.
Guys why not have the Necromancer kill our Ex? It would solve a legal battle. That we are now stuck fucking facing.>>45539043 Good luck on it anon when you do run!
>>45539112Pretty sure necromancer is nowhere near her levelAlso he seems to still really have the hots for her, don't think he could make such a decision.
>>45539013She scoffs, and turns her back to you."Yes, I'm sure she'll be very eager to come back after getting nailed to a wall in a dark cave. And anyway, it's not about what she wants, it's about what she needs. She needs to learn the business from someone who's been in it for three centuries, not be running around with apes and thugs like you two." She gestures to both you and Shaka, who merely shrugs."When she wakes up, I'll let her call you, but I'm locking her up until she sees reason. Even if it takes the rest of your life."With that, the two of them vanish beneath the water's surface, leaving you alone with Shaka, and an awkward silence. "Er, so... I'm sorry about that man, I didn't know what was up.">"Fuck you, asshole.">"It's alright.">"Whatever.">Other
>>45539152>OtherEh, fancy going for a drink and forgetting this ever happened? Call off the whole invasion thing and get fucked up with booze?
>>45539152>"It's alright, asshole."

>>45539249>>45539277Kek, this is my headcannon now. I wouldn't want to kill someone on the same boat as me.Maybe we can get him to work for us and we'll spend our time shooting the shit about our kids and ex wives

>>45539430>I guess that explains why our ex-wife is so condescending to us.I'm pretty sure our ex-wife is condescending to us because she's our ex-wife.
>>45539188You offer to drop the entire issue and go for a drink, rather than pretend to be interested in the remainder of this conflict. He admits to only being here out of obligation, and releases you from your bonds."I have a shortcut I used to make my dramatic entrance, it goes straight to the surface. Just follow me."The two of you make a journey back to town on his horse-drawn wagon, and arrive sullen and thirsty. You ignore Duncan's questions and tell him and the others to get back to work as you make your way to the nearest pub.Three drinks in, you're already on the verge of tearing the place up out of anger, but Shaka manages to calm you down."I know how it be, man. I had two kids back in the day. When I was alive, I mean. Then I go and get ripped in half by a minotaur and suddenly I'm 'an unfit parent'. Makes me wonder why I even made that deal with the undead lord to come back." He pauses to drain a shot glass, wincing afterward. "I joined the army because they takes all kinds, yknow? But now it just feels like I'm doing the same shit, day in and day out, living from paycheck to paycheck. No kids, no house, can't own shit when you're dead. I dunno.

And then they'll fuck and we'll have the best grandkids ever!"We may be more than a little drunk
>>45539465>"Well, given first impressions, I can't offer you a job at the moment. But if you can convince Vanessa that I should employ you (and good luck with THAT Herculean task) I'll do better than that and try to get your sentence lightened.">"How did you manage to capture her, anyways?

>>45539581This fucking too, holy shit and I'm over here with the beer's open.
>>45539581Yeah. Too tempting to pass up
Not to be a spoilsport, but this guy just fucked over our daughter (possibly literally).Why the hell are we treating him so nicely?
>>45539465>Pat him on the back>Recant the day Vanessa was born>Offer him a jobIf he does well enough>Offer to make some calls and try to lighten his sentence
>>45539652Because he too has been dealt a shit hand, And we're gentlemen of evil. We didn't know each other had really shitty or close lives but we can help each other go into the future.
>>45539575>>45539581You ramble on about this and that, stirring up both of your drunken hearts, but after the third bottle of tequila, you start to shift from anger to somber. You begin mumbling about that fateful day twenty-two years ago, when you were still employed by the Sorcerer Vald.It was hot out, because of the burning city you'd just sacked. You and your friends Ray and Bobby were patting each other on the back for the bang up job you did, when suddenly one of the underlings ran up with a message for you. Your wife was going into labor, and the evil midwife you hired was urging you to come in quick. You practically begged Ray to cover for you, and he finally agreed if you promised to name Vanessa after him. You agreed, which is why her middle name is Ray.You burst through the gates of hell, knocking over imps and fiends left and right as you rushed to the delivery room. When you arrived, it was too late, and she was born. The midwife asked you to cut the chord, and you summoned your hellfire sword to do so. As you held that bloody abomination of nature in your arms, screaming like a mandrake, you couldn't help but feel connected. To think something so terrifying had come from you was simply breathtaking. As she suckled from the razorgoat you brought in to milk, and then ate it alive, you fell in love.By the time you finish, Shaka is misty eyed. You ask him if he'd like to help you out, seeing as you seem to get along well enough."I would man, but I gotta finish up this contract. Tell you what," he says, wiping his eyes and reaching into his robes. "Here's my totem address. You ever need some undead whipped up, I'm your man. I can't do big stuff of they'll chew my ass out, but I can do anything amalgam and below." He hands you a wooden coin with heinous runes carved into it. "I should get going. What are you gonna do?">Go to bed>Go home>Go harass some townsfolk>Other
>>45539913>OtherTrain our stress out with our newly formed army, get them up to par with a crash course.
>>45539913>>Other"I think I'll just... stay here, and uh.. Think for a bit. See you around, friend. Let me know whenever you're up for another drink."
>>45539913>Go to bed. No sensible military decisions are being made after three bottles of tequila.
>>45539913>>Go harass some townsfolkLet's work off some of that stress.
>>45539913While we're at it, offer to see if we can do anything to shorten his contract.
>>45539913>OtherHmm...>Give Duncan a tight, almost spine crushing hug>Seriously talk to him for the first time since you've employed him>"Duncan mah boi, I love you. You're like the son my ex-wife could never give me. YOU HEAR THAT, CUNT?! THE SON YOU COULD NEVER GIVE ME!"
>>45540081kek, backing this. The one and only time we actually talk to Duncan, and it's only because we're drunk as fuck.
>>45540081I'd back this too, it's funny.
>>45540103Well that would be our chances of being a BBEGGRANDPA out the window.
>>45539913>Also once your contract is up, hit us up in return. Bones all rest in the graveyard and get raised togeather.>OtherTHIS >>45540081
>>45540081I'd like to go with this as well. Make it happen, OP.
>>45540081Gotta back this, it's just too funny thinking of how Duncan would react to this.
Maybe we give Marigold a visit? We gotta relive the stress we endured seeing our hot ex-wife pop up for all of a minute somehow.
>>45540299She's days, if not a week away. We kiiiind of still have an invading army to deal with.
>>45540081You stumble back to the town hall, knocking over hapless minions as you go, until you find Duncan fast asleep in his bed. You lean over his snoozing body, and shake the mattress until he wakes with a fright. When he looks up, half asleep and confused, you hoist him out of bed and confess that you always thought of him as a son. Your immense, powerful arms squeeze all the air from his lungs as he tries to thank you. He is interrupted by loud and liberal cursing of your ex-wife.When things finally settle down, and Duncan brings you a cup of black coffee, you explain what happened. He seems quite shocked by the events of the day as well, seeing as Vanessa was a friend to him."I'm sorry, sir. If you like, we can go to the orgy tomorrow morning? I'm sure it'll cheer up the minions too.">"No, I just want to go home.">"Sure, couldn't hurt.">"No, we still have work to do.">Other
>>45540299She is AFTER we spinal crush Duncan.>Other, Go find Marigold. We need REAL help not Unholy help
>>45540332>"Sure, couldn't hurt." >OtherPick out Marigold as our main squeeze during the orgy, if you catch my meaning.
>>45540395Basically we bang her the hardest during the orgy.
>>45540332>>Other"IT JUST WON'T BE THE SAME. Nobody could ever compare to Ms. Beg. Goddamn, I want to smash my head into her delicious ass just one more time."
>>45540332>Other, Go find Marigold to fix our issue for the night as a one fuck thing.
>>45540424She's back at the base, man.
Has everyone forgotten that we left Marigold to defend our main stronghold, which is deep in land? Like, days away?
>>45540464Fuck, you're right. How about we just bang the hottest tavern wench then?
>>45540489It'l do. But it's no whip-fu
>>45540534We can visit our whip-fu later
>Joining an orgy with the minions will cheer them up and boost moraleFucking good quest OP, today's been nothing but good laughs all around.Well except for that one bad thing that happened, but still.
>>45540332>"No, I just want to go home."Let's get undrunk before we make a bad decision.
>>45540374You sleep for a few hours, and join the minions for the weekly orgy enforced by your new laws.At first, things are pretty awkward, as is to be expected from people new to the orgy scene. People standing on opposite ends of the room, trying not to make eye contact, trying to keep relatively covered up by their bath towels. It's up to you to show them how it's done, and you do, picking out two girls who look about ripe, and going at them. Before long, people get into the swing of things, and soon you have a proper celebration of hedonism and deviancy. After about four solid hours, things calm down, and you break up the meeting to hit the showers.To your surprise, you do feel a little better, but thinking about Vanessa still makes you feel a little sad. With the town properly settled, Shaka's forces on their way home with bad information about your 'defeat', and not much to do when you return, you wonder why you'd bother going home.>Stay in town and party a little>Head home and get back to business>March south and capture the rest of the coast>Other
>>45540712>March south and capture the rest of the coastFUCK EVERYONE. We will show the courts we can do our job!

>>45540712>Head home and get back to businessTime for a bit of housekeeping
>>45540712>>Stay in town and party a littleWe can afford to loosen up a little, right? Maybe manage things a little, try to forget about our troubles for a bit.Maybe check in on Marigold, see how things are going back home.
>>45540712>head home and get back to business. Time to review and try and come up with a plan.
>>45540712>March south and capture the rest of the coastIt's what Vanessa would've wanted.
>>45540909No wait! Lets call up a lawyer and get our daughter back. I'll be damned if we don't use every resource at our disposal to at least try and get her back.
>>45540909Okay... cancel this.>>45540942Support this instead
>>45540942We can do that while we secure the coast.
>>45540793You begin the long march home, leaving most of the new men behind to defend the town. Thanks to Vanessa's training, they are practically thralls, so you're confident they'll remain steadfast in the face of future attackers.The trek home is quiet and stressful. None dare speak to you unless need be, or they risk a hard backhand into the dirt. By the time you pass through the town that resisted, you think you feel a bit better, but when asked about Vanessa by the charmed citizens there, you go back to moping.Finally, you arrive on your own doorstep, and are greeted by the saluting minions, lead by a newly uniformed Marigold. Her armor is not partially steel, with a small hat in place of a helmet. She too notices Vanessa's absence, and asks about her situation.>"We're going to pick her up soon." (Lie)>"She's gone.">Tell all>Other
>>45541112>"My ex-wife showed up. I don't think you need more explanation than that."
>>45541112>Ex-Wife, Be in my chambers tonight or else. >walk off to call a lawyer to get this fixed.
>>45541156You tell Marigold that Vanessa's mother paid you a visit, and nothing more other than to meet you tonight. She seems confused, but knows better than to question you.You make your way to your office and flip through your Rolodex of Darkness, searching for a single lawyer that isn't soulbound to serving your wife. Turns out, there's only one, and she's Lawful Good, against all odds.

>>45541422>Anything for VanessaA true dark lord has people serving him that don't even know it and think they're a force for good.
>>45541450You pull out the card and establish a connection to the astral plane. Hold takes a total of three seconds, and you are put through to her secretary right away."Good afternoon, you've reached the offices of Sun, Moon, and Stars! If you're calling about a case in progress, I'm afraid you'll have to contact-" You interrupt her here, and tell her you're looking for legal counsel. You explain the situation, and she seems genuinely touched. "I'm sure Miss Blanc will be happy to take your case, let me put you through to her." This again takes a shocking amount of time, only five minutes. You reach Janet Blanc, and explain the situation for the fifth time in all, and she sympathizes."Don't you worry sir, I'll help you fight this. And if it's any consolation, you sound like an amazing father." With that, the line disconnects. You wonder if you should have mentioned the necromancer torture, or any of the hell bits.You have a hardy meal and retire to your evil study for a while, simply ruminating on the situation. With a small nation's worth of land, you should be rushing to secure your borders, but without Vanessa it all seems pointless. all you can do is wait for something to happen.>Sleep in the chair>Go back to your room>Go out>Other
>>45541819Stupid evil pls go.We owe our Ex THREE favours already and she is a deamon. Pissing here off would make the called in favors most likely go from 'mildly annyoing' (that is horrifingly cruel and demanding and quite severly cuts or leisure time) to 'real work'. Pls don't.

>>45541885>OtherCall Duncan and Punchy Mcgee and tell them they're working all night on a plan to defend the newly won lands. Then go back to your room and get to some cherry poppin'
>>45541950You return to your bedroom promptly, quite exhausted. When you enter, Marigold is awkwardly leaning against the far wall, peering out the window beside her at the mountains across the way. When she hears you, her head snaps forward, and she stands upright."Sir. You summoned me here, though I'm not sure I understand why.">Cut to the chase>Approach the subject subtly>Just ask for someone to talk to>Other

>>45542219You sit on your bed and speak calmly, asking Marigold about her feelings on several subjects. She seems to see where things are going, and when you finally arrive at the real subject, you observe a bit of surprise in her eyes."Oh. I didn't know you felt that way about me, sir. I'd always assumed you were interested in more powerful women." Marigold presses a knuckle to her lips, staring at the ground. When she finally does look back to you, she seems to have a newfound determination."I only mean to ask this once, sir. Is this an offer, or an order?">The former>The latter>It doesn't matter>Other
>>45542383>an offer, We won't let this effect work.
>>45542383>Offer We're evil, but the other way would be dam' ungentlemanly
>>45542383"It's a once in a lifetime opportunity to take +5 Blackguard Dick".
>>45542383>The latterIsn't she a masochist? If this isn't the intend i will go with the former option.
>>45542542If she's into that kinda stuff we can figure out all the details mid coitus.
>>45542542Probably sadomasochist, she likes it both ways.
>>45542426"Then I'd like to refuse. As much as I respect your work, I'm afraid I simply don't look at you in a way that would allow me to derive any pleasure from such an experience. The incident during my punishment was certainly eye opening, but my feelings toward you are no more than a subordinate to her superior, due in no small part to my recent promotion. I'm also certain the men wouldn't like to know about such a rendezvous, as we've come to feel united as one. The difficulty of earning respect as a leader when you're a woman is high, and I'd only serve to compromise my position among them by accepting an offer such as this, generous as it is. Goodnight, sir." Marigold tries to stride past you and toward the door, but you spot her red face as she makes for the exit.>Let her go in peace>Stop her>Other
>>45542577>>Let her go in peace
>>45542577>>OtherOkay lads time for us to reveal our ace in the hole. Reveal the whip.
>>45542577>Other"Here I was with this brand new whip to break in and new surplus of goods from one of the noblitys. Guess some lowly minion is gonna have to be used to aid in breaking them in."
>>45542577>Let her go in peaceWe'll find gash elsewhere.
>>45542577>>Let her go in peaceShe has a very good point.
>>45542614+1 for the irresistable whip
>>45542577>>Let her go in peaceShe respects us, why don't we show her a little respect too. Aren't we gentlemen?
>>45542616Marigold freezes with her hand on the door. You fully expect her to turn back, but instead she merely clears her throat."Please, sir. Such bargaining is beneath a man like you." With nothing more to say, she slips out into the hall and shuts the door behind her. You're left alone in your room with a whip, and no daughter to hug goodnight.>Go to sleep>Other
>>45542696>Aren't we gentlemen?
>>45542704>OtherPot noodle and a wank it is, then.
>>45542704Told you guys. >Go to sleep>Cry a little>Cry a lot
>>45542704Ouch.>OtherLook out the window and think about things until we pass out from exhaustion.
>>45542704Welp, bring up Duncan.
>>45542704Good job guys, she likely lost some respect for us with that.>Go to sleep
>>45542704>OtherWe rule this town, right? Invoke droit du seigneur.
>>45542704>OtherLet out a dark booming laugh to cover the fact that she actually stopped instead still moving.then this>>45542747
>OP doesnt pick majority vote or firstThis isn't how this works is it?
>>45542747ThisMaybe Summon DuncanAwkwardly cuddle him to sleep as if he were VanessaJust tell him to play along
>>45542788I could've swore the majority was the one where it was an offer.
>>45542813While petting his head and holding him in a death grip.
>>45542880I'm sorry but I love this whole. " We're the biggest/badass motherfucker around " and our Ex-steals our kid. >Try to get laid>Fail>Call Duncan>Cry and pet him>Go to sleep, with him as a our body pillow in depression>Wake up " SOUL COCAINE IS A HELL OF A DRUG KIDS. "
>>45542939Vanessa was our everything, man. Clearly we just fall apart without her.
>>45542761Retracting this.>>45542813Supporting this now.
>>45542747>>45542749>>45542813You take a few minutes to totally not cry at all, and then step out into the hallway, grabbing a random minion passing by and ordering himself to summon Duncan. If there's one thing you can call him it's prompt, and he is at your door within the minute.You tell Duncan it's time to serve you in a way that only he can. He seems nervous, but accepts his fate.You spend the rest of the night stroking his hair as though it were Vanessa's, ignoring the tone muscle and slightly more masculine whimpers.You awake the next morning well rested, but still slightly downbeat. Duncan is long gone, as is he should be.You attend a morning meeting featuring Marigold, who says nothing of your conversation the previous night, and Shen, who is bored to tears with the tedium of the whole thing. Near the end, Duncan asks if you'll be taking some time off, since you seem a bit distant.>Throw yourself at your work for the time being>Sit around drinking, whoring, and trying to finish that jigsaw puzzle>Other
>>45543058>Throw yourself at your work for the time beingWe are not a pussy, WE WILL DO OUR JOB!
>>45543058>Throw yourself at your work for the time beingFor next time, we go to her and get what we want, how we want it.Point out that we gave her the option and she refused it, we gave her a little time to reflect.So if she's going to be smug, this is what smug gets.She works for US, period.Obviously, this defies my sensibilities IRL, but supervillain.
>>45543093I didn't mean to intend smug, sorry if that's how it came across. It was supposed to be respectful supportiveness without being patronizing
>>45543058>Throw yourself at your work for the time being. We have evil to do, damnit.
>>45543058>Throw ourselves at work, WE MUST DO WHAT OUR DAUGHTER WOULD WON'T.> Write down on a piece of paper - Oh... and Duncan, Hide the booze from our. Tiss a new task for your list of things to do.
>>45543093Yup, were gonna bounce right back into that beast of a woman.
>>45543137want. Holy fuck. Sorry
>>45543058>>Throw yourself at your work for the time beingkek at that one rapey anon
>>45543127Self-righteous, then.Whatever it was, refusing the offer came with the baggage that she doesn't seem to think we're 'good enough'.Well, if we're not 'good enough', we can be bad enough.>>45543187It's in character, I think.Horrible, sure, but we're in an Evil campaign.We wouldn't be otherwise.
>>45543127Its all good. >>45543207>>45543187We only Rape the FINEST of maidens and she is clearly not worthy of our 5-star rapage.
>>45543090You reassure Duncan that recent events will not effect your work, and the others seem quite happy to hear it. Your heart is as black and hateful as ever, and you show this by pressing even harder on the locals, who find it almost reassuring to have you back in the dominant position. As a happy side note, the first children born of your weekly orgy policy have been conceived, and you hope to turn them into fine servants one day.After a few long days, you receive a connection from the ninth level of hell, and sure enough it's Vanessa. You pause whipping a rebellious priest to accept the call."Hi, daddy. Sorry it's been so long, mom just barely let me have the right to establish outside connections within her dominion. She's such a bitch.">"She is. Tell me what's going on, sweetie.">"Don't talk about your mother that way.">Other
>>45543269>>"Don't talk about your mother that way."
>>45543269>"She is. Tell me what's going on, sweetie."At worst, we can pass this off as a joke.
>>45543207I understand that we're the beg, I just find it funny how some anons want to fuck Marigold so badly. Maybe I just don't get it since I don't see the appeal in her? Why do you guys want her so much, anyway?Also, this is just my opinion, but I don't think that she didn't deem us 'good enough'. The red in her face showed that she did want it, it's just that she feared losing the respect of the men. If word got out (and it always does), then the men will stop listening to her and they'll lose their sense of camaraderie. They'll just think she's a dirty whore who used her body to get the promotion she got.
>>45543269>>"She is. Tell me what's going on, sweetie."We invade hell now?
>>45543269>She's your mother only we can call that hot piece of demonic ass a bitch, Now tell me whats going on. You realize you DID sign the paperwork to work for us right? Your mother is causing issues and we can take that to court.
>>45543269>"Don't talk about your mother that way.">"She's not a worthless cunt on stilts that ruined my life, not a bitch."
>>45543332We had to call our ex to save us and our daughter from a single necromancer.Take that as you will.
>>45543332"Not much, mom's basically at work all day and Glen is a pussy. He only lets me have organically harvested souls, because they're supposed to be healthy or something. It's all old people and sick babies. I want a nice juicy serial killer, but mom won't let me go out to eat. I just sit around in my pajamas reading magazines all day. I can only pretend to care about demigod gossip for so long. When are you gonna come and get me? I'm already all better, mom's just paranoid." Despite her joking tone, you can hear the faint hint of desperation and longing.>"You know what? I'll come right now." (Violate the separation agreement)>"Soon, baby. I just need to sort out some things first.">"I can't, your mother is taking this to court. You're only 22, so by demonic law you're a minor, and even if you're only half she has every lawyer sucking on her perky tits so I have to deal with a ton of shit to fight it.">Other
>>45543373And that same necromancer is now a drinking buddy of ours. I say were well on our way.
>>45543458>>"I can't, your mother is taking this to court. You're only 22, so by demonic law you're a minor, and even if you're only half she has every lawyer sucking on her perky tits so I have to deal with a ton of shit to fight it."But papa's gonna get you out one way or the other, courts be damned.
>>45543458>"Hopefully soon, but your mother is taking this to court. You're only 22, so by demonic law you're a minor, and even if you're only half she has every lawyer sucking on her perky tits so I have to deal with a ton of shit to fight it."
>>45543458>>"You know what? I'll come right now." (Violate the separation agreement)WhatCouldPossiblyGoWrong.jpg
>>45543464She completely ignored his ass. Having him on our side isn't much of step up.>>45543458>"I can't, your mother is taking this to court. You're only 22, so by demonic law you're a minor, and even if you're only half she has every lawyer sucking on her perky tits so I have to deal with a ton of shit to fight it."
>>45543458>"Soon, baby. Your mother is taking this to court. You're only 22, so by demonic law you're a minor, and she happens to have every lawyer sucking on her breasts- so I have about three-thousand, four-hundred & sixty-two documents to go through right now. I promise i'm working as fast as i can."
>>45543319My answer for you is that she's the most easily identifiable female character that's not our wife or ex: She is in the first spot for 'new wife' material.Add in the inevitable ego that comes with the job of overlord, and the common, if not inevitable result, is that we should be desirable, and thus she should have accepted our offer, rationality be damned.Basically, we'd be getting our macho stoked by having women desire us, and she's the closest measuring stick we respect.Overanalysis ho!
>>45543458>"Soon, baby. I just need to sort out some things first."
I just want to say, we could have avoided all of this if we just ditched out armor and fought naked
>>45543565Well, uh, wow. Okay, I see your point.
>>45543541You give Vanessa the real story, and she is understandably upset."That's bullshit! I hate it here! I wanna come home already! Ugh, why does she have to be such a-" it goes on like that for a while before coming back around to "-Fine. I'll just sit on my butt and eat old man souls for now. But if you need me to do anything, just ask daddy. I love you!" You hear a kiss come over the connection.>"Take care, sweetie.">"Actually, if you testify it would make things much easier.">Other
>>45543657>>"Actually, if you testify it would make things much easier."DEVILISH
>>45543657>" Actually if you would testify it would make things easier. "
>>45543657>"Actually, if you testify it would make things much easier."
>>45543689It will get her home quicker. Lets be honest with her about it all. Also as soon as we get her home were getting the necromancer to apologise to her, maybe we should tell her that?
>>45543657>>"Actually, if you testify it would make things much easier."
>>45543689Vanessa agrees, and you blow her a kiss before cutting the line and returning to where you left off. You ask Duncan to remind you what you were punishing the naked, bound preacher for."He spoke of rebelling against your strength, my dark lord. He tried to incite the people to riot and turn to his church with promises of bounty and mercy from the gods. He also said you were a deceiver, Shen was a foreign devil, Vanessa was a seed craving whore to demons, and something about a goat, my pen ran out of ink at the end." You nod and unfurl your whip.>Feather touch>Firm but Gentle>This hurts me more than it hurts you>I don't want to have to do this again>We're both gonna be sore tomorrow>Power Drive>The screams. My god, the screams.
>>45543793>THE SCREAMS, CAN YOU HEAR THEM TOO?
>>45543793>>The screams. My god, the screams.Stop before he dies. We're gonna drag this out.
>>45543793>I don't want to have to do this againGets the point across, but shows we're not needlessly a dick.
>>45543793"'Seed craving whore to demons', mm? I suppose you'll see just how wrong you are when she devours your pitiful soul like a stale cracker. Try to taste good, won't you?">The screams. My god, the screams.
Just putting this out there but what kind of trophies do you think our BEG will take? Would he like take weapons and build up a collection or would he do something else?
>>45543793>>The screams. My god, the screams.He talked shit about our daughter. Make him hurt so bad that he'll remember the pain distinctly every time he thinks about it.
>>45543908Heads, weapons, arms.That reminds me, did we pick up our rival's?Get it put in a jar or something, so we can display it on our desk, get a plaque for it.He deserves that much.
>>45543793>Get him on a catapult.'If you like your god so much, why don't you meet him in the sky!?'
>>45543831You lay into him until his back resembles so much ground meat. The cries for mercy are replaced in time by unfettered screams and howls, and finally by vomit and guttural groans. When at last your arm is too sore to go on, you have Shen untie him and wrap his torso in bandages and an antiseptic. If he lives through this, he'll wish he hadn't.You move to the next prisoner in line."This one tried to steal from the treasury, saying he was going to use the money to flee the country. He killed a man in his attempt. Also he tried to send a message to a neighboring lord to ask for asylum.">Feather touch>Firm but Gentle>This hurts me more than it hurts you>I don't want to have to do this again>We're both gonna be sore tomorrow>Power Drive
>>45543981>Power DriveDon't stop till he stops.
>>45543981>This hurts me more than it hurts you>"Pathetic. I am your lord- if you want to ask for mercy, ask me."
>>45543981>OH YAAAA, POWER DRIVE TIME!
>>45543981>We're both gonna be sore tomorrowC'mon guys, we can't be too hard on the populace. We don't want the peasants to form an autonomous collective.
>>45543981>>Power DriveSo what happens after the whipping? Do they go to jail? Or do they just go home?
>>45544082Spotted the rebel scum.
>>45544018You give him the old "long drive to hell". He doesn't last more than five strokes before biting his own tongue and bleeding out on the post. You wave him away and bring out the next victim."This woman is accused of slaying a woman who claimed to be bearing your child. There's no proof she was, but it's the principle of the thing.">Feather touch>Firm but Gentle>This hurts me more than it hurts you>I don't want to have to do this again>We're both gonna be sore tomorrow>Power Drive
>>45544082TRATIOR!>>45544157UH FUCK, What is this one? >I..don't want to do this again, Let her believe what she believes.
>>45544118Oh! Come and see the violence inherent in the system! Help, help, I'm being repressed!
>>45544157>Firm but Gentle
>>45544157I have a nasty idea here, but I'm going to go with>I don't want to have to do this again>"For your own sake, I hope you were wrong."
>>45544157>>This hurts me more than it hurts youThen give her to the men to do with as they please. On their own time of course.
>>45544157>>We're both gonna be sore tomorrowA WASTE OF A LUSTY WOMAN? IN MY DOMAIN?
>>45544157>I don't want to have to do this againIf it is discovered later that she actually was pregnant with our child, this bitch is DEAD.
>>45544157Guys,she fucking KILLED our unborn child?Power Drive x 10
>>45544324No proof.Bitch coulda been lying.Further investigation must be done, however.
>>45544324There's no evidence, dipshit.
>>45544225>>45544204You treat her with just enough gentleness to not to drive her to fainting. Her back is more than fairly torn, but you suspect the skin will heal into scars in time.With all that taken care of, you toss the whip to Duncan and retire to your study with a glass of brandy and order a massage from one of the minions to loosen up your shoulders. If you sleep on these as they are, you're liable to pull something next time.Suddenly, a message comes across the astral connection. You take it, hoping for good news."Hello? This is Janet Blanc's office. Just calling to let you know that we've got a date. I've done everything I can to make this a winning case, to unless we're dealing with a really, really, REALLY corrupt courtroom, we're solid gold, my friend." You clear your throat and agree."Anyway, meet on the appointed date and time and I promise you'll get your daughter back." The connection cuts out, and you fold your arms with uncertainty looming over you. This may be the greatest battle of your life.
>>45544157>Feather touchNothing to see here
>>45544378Time to Phoenix Wright that court room!
>>45544378>No options>Bump limit>Page 8Is this the end for today? If so, thanks. It was fun.
That's a wrap for tonight, I'd start another thread but honestly I was so excited for today I got no sleep at all. I hope everyone enjoyed the thread, and I hope you'll come back same time tomorrow for the exciting conclusion of the babymama arc. Follow the twitter for thread times, and little story bits that I let out as I think of them. I'll be around a little longer, so feel free to ask any questions, and again thank you for coming in and participating!

>>45544459Thanks, it's my favorite one to run so far, and you guys are really great to write for!
>>45544430Christ that was a lot of fun. Will the BEG age like a normal human or does he have a prolonged life?
>>45544515He's already a few centuries old, he's kept alive by evil and all the fairies he ate
>Lawful Good lawyer>she wins our case>get daughter back>her fee isn't money>its good deeds
>>45544572>implying it's not evil dickOptimism, friend
>>45544572Do good deeds that further our goal, then.Feed the populace of our enemy to sway them towards us, etc.
>>45544572So we enslave her and keep her as a secretary and have her work on "community relations" on the side.
>>45544572>Its good deeds>She actually has a weird fetish to NOT!Hook-up with a single dad raising his daughter>" It...it's not like I want to help you! Y...you're daughter just needs a good Moral compess! I swear!"

I gotta say, today had to be my favorite quest, OP. Good fun all around.By the way, can anyone link me to OP's twitter? Or at lest tell me his username
>>45544940Oh wow, I feel pretty stupid for missing that. Thanks.
