More than 2 years have passed since you became The OverlordMany things have happened, you think you headed towards a pirate cove, you ripped out another man's spine, and you got some new bodyguardsLast we left off: You were getting surrounded by piratesPrevious Thread: http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/qstarchive/410744/Archive: http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/qstarchive.html?tags=MastahTwitter: https://twitter.com/OverlordQMCharacter Sheet: http://pastebin.com/6TfyJwggForge Pastebin: http://pastebin.com/PH7i5BUPMajority wins, No rigid time limit for votes, Ties will be broken with a die roll.

Pastebin sidestories may be rewarded with a win/choice ticket. And remember evil always finds a way.>23, Huge Success>Lightning JavelinTwo shots ring out through the fighting, you feel pain. But you suffer no wounds, you have a pain in the ass and they are all standing in front of you. You raise your arm up and create a spear made of red lightning, your anger manifest. Releasing the bolt into the air it takes no perceivable time to meet its target and turn him into red mist, continuing its path it collides with another man. The impaled man remains standing showing a pained look of "triumph", until the bolt arches and causes all his pistols to fire and bombs on his person to explode. The bolt free from a fleshy target turns sharply and impales the next closest man before shattering into 3 smaller bolts and repeating the cycle once more, each bolt coming in contact with a man arching and igniting any powder or bomb on them. The true beauty of the event could probably only be enjoyed by yourself. A small breeze clearing the smoke reveals only 4 survivors of your would be attackers, and their disorientation says they are no longer a threat to you. Gore however does not leave that to chance and they quickly join their shipmates. Boats will certainly be leaving for the ship soon you need to find something in the captain's cabin. Kicking the door in you survey the room, there is a desk, a wardrobe, a chest of drawers, a bed and 2 bookcases. Your time is limited what do you search through first?>Pick 1 and roll d20>Desk>Wardrobe>Chest of drawers>Bed>Bookcases

>>438162You basically yanked out the desk drawer and dumped out the contents and with the crew dead no
Rolled 12 (1d20)>>438172Chest of drawers
>12, Slight successSearching through the chest of drawers you find that it is filled with maps, charts, and ledgers. Best guessing is shipping lanes and what ship was hit and where, looks like one country or company is a favored target being hit a bit more than the others. Interesting. Do you search through the chest of drawers more or do you search something else?>Keep searching>Search something elseRoll a d20 for either

Rolled 12 (1d20)>>438706>Bed

Rolled 17 (1d20)>>438773
>>438790what is your selection?
>17, SuccessJust in case you rip apart everything again and find a journal but it doesn't seem to be the captain's log it has much more personal entries in it. You'll have to have a more thorough look later. "Master, rowboat are approaching" You had hoped you had more time. Maybe Gore can make some more time, or perhaps it's best to leave now.>Gore makes time, search something else (Specify, roll d20)>Time to go
Rolled 14 (1d20)>>438826>Gore makes time (desk)

Rolled 8 (1d20)>>438826>Gore makes time (desk)
>14, Success"Make time" Gore leaves and you send the reds with him hopefully they can stretch this out. You slam your hands on the desk, you need more dirt and now. A hollow thunk comes from the floor, a small lockbox is under the desk where it wasn't previously. Using the key from earlier opens it right up revealing some personal treasures, a letter and a few drawings, some professional others clearly from a child, and a locket. You hear the reds throw fireballs, the rowboats are getting closer. >Wardrobe(d20)>Bookcases(d20)>Enough searching, leave
Rolled 9 (1d20)>>438879>Bookcases(d20)
>>438879Enough searching leave.
>Enough SearchingNot so much worried about being overwhelmed but knowing the longer you stay the harder it will be to leaving you choose to end your search through the captain's quarters. The reds have done a decent job at burning rowboats, preventing three from pulling up. Gore is standing on a rowboat covered in bodies, he is sinking or killing the occupants of others. Climbing down to a boat your minions join you and after capsizing another rowboat so does Gore. Gore gets you to shore quickly and the other rowboats are still a few minutes behind, you beat feet back to the abandoned shack luckily not running into more pirates, probably because they were in the rowboats after you. You collect your breathe and look at what you collected; A journal, a lockbox of personal treasures, and a ship's ledger. What do you examine more closely first?>Journal>Lockbox>LedgerLast post of the night, goodnight minions
>>438990Just take the ledger and journal with us and book it. >>439007Before we leave.
>>439426I would like to point out that you are already back at the shack with all three of those things
>LockboxLooking through the lockbox first the locket inside catches your attention, the craftsmanship is excellent but its details are slightly worn and some scratches and nicks are in it. The inside has two portraits, the one on the left is a woman with fair skin and black hair, if you find her she would make an excellent candidate for a mistress. The other portrait is a small child with hair just as dark as the woman's, her child? You don't really want baggage with possible mistresses, this will be taken into consideration if you ever do actually find this woman. The drawings are a mix of professional quality and those from a child, all show depictions of a family, the woman, the child and a large man, Captain kelley you presume. The last thing in the box is a sealed letter. You know the captain has a family, which you can exploit, you don't really need anymore than that. But the letter might reveal something else you might need to know. Open the letter?>Open it, you stole it might as well read it>Don't, you have enough to exploit the Captain
>>440863>Open it, you stole it might as well read it
>Open it, you stole it might as well read it
>Open itYou open the letter and the immediate thing you notice is that there appears to be some water stains one obscuring the name at the end but otherwise everything else is legible.Nate, First I want to let you know that I love you very much and I wish fate had taken a different path. I have to leave and I'm not sure if I am ever coming back. You might be angry with me at first but I hope in time you can forgive me. Maybe you will think that going after me might be for the best, I have put precautions into place to ensure you won't be able to track me down. If I want you to find me, I will find you. You will be taken care of, you have your sister and Wyatt will be able to help you through the tough parts. Please stay strong.Fair winds and following sea, -AThats interesting to say the least, looks like the captain's wife left him. You might still be able to use this to your advantage. You still have the ledger and the journal to look though if you want to.>Look through ledger>Look through journal>Find the captain and exploit him
>Look through ledger
>>441054>Look through journal
Rolled 6 (1d10)>>441077odds>>441091evens
>JournalTime to look through the personal thoughts and musings of the captain. Selecting days that are a little more filled out than other you notice a pattern, the journal is more like 1/2 captain's log and 1/2 diary. First the captain talks about the weather, usually just stating if it was a sunny, windy, or rainy day. Next is a small note if they raided a ship or have set eyes on a potential target. Finally are the personal thoughts or struggles, usually dealing with the crew but sometimes it is a personal struggle. Several entries involve Wyatt and other crew members by name, One entry in particular catches your eye. Wyatt rebuffed my advances, I feel like such a fool. If the crew found out I would never hear the end of it and I would probably have leave out of humiliation. Looks like the captain tried leaning on Wyatt a little too much. This certainly could be useful. Just the ledger left, do you read it or do you try finding and exploiting the captain?>Read ledger>Find the captain
>LedgerYou have it might as well read it, and it proves to be extremely valuable if you want to cause a mutiny. The ledger is separated into three parts. The first section is all the goods and loot stolen from passing ships as well as some details on those ships. A noticeable majority of ships are from a "Shizukanaseieki Shipping Services" and come from a country far far to the west. But during the accounting it looks like a commission fee is earned for each ship hit, interesting. The second section concerns payroll, but look at the way things are divided up the captain is making a rather large pay difference even considering her position. The last section contain information on a tontine. Looks like it is being used as a retirement plan but the payout is huge. 234K in gold, it's ludicrously lucrative for the survivor. Maybe they participants don't quite know how much they are really sitting on, or they haven't even been told about it. This ledger has been very enlightening. So are going to use this information to blackmail the captain, or are you going to cause a mutiny? Or you feeling particularly evil and will shoot for both?>Blackmail>Mutiny>Why not both? (Hard)
>BlackmailYou can give the captain a chance to surrender the old fashioned way, no need to destroy any more than what already has been. Having your collected evidence you head back to the manor, it clearly has to be the captain's home off the ship. The streets around your shack are quiet but you can hear the frantic search for you and the lust to spill your guts. Guts will be spilled if you are found, they just won't be yours and Gore will make sure of that. Heading back up the path you took from the manor you find the bodies of the escorts you killed still left where you last placed them, which is a good sign means there should be nobody in the area. Continuing towards the manor you can see that there are some more guards then there was before. Nobody secures a building if there isn't nobody important inside, the captain is there or at the very least Wyatt is there. But how are you going to deal with the guards? A frontal assault will let anyone inside know there are unwelcomed guests, but if you botch sneaking in you will be surrounded for sure.>Frontal Assault, the longer it takes getting room to room the harder it will get (Specify Magic or Melee, d20+4)>Sneak in, Fuck this up and you'll have no escape routes (d20)

Domination magic might be your ticket here, making more meatshields while simultaneously reducing enemy moral and number. Alright here goes nothing, rushing forward grabs the attention of the pirates. Most pull a pistol from their belt and aim at you and Gore, metal balls fly toward you. A metal twang rings out as bullet hits your armor and ricochets, now within range of your magic you try to make a new follower. While Gore fights the some other pirates, you successfully take over the mind of one. You new enslaved follower goes to join in the fight with Gore, his former companions confused about his betrayal but a bullet quickly shows the inside of his skull the light. Gore takes the opportunity to strike down another pirate and another readies a shot in your direction. Maybe mind magic isn't the most effective way through this.

Rolled 17, 8, 10 + 1 = 36 (3d20 + 1)>21, SuccessSweeping your minions into distract the pirate, you quickly lay down an Ice trap without his notice. Pulling the minions towards you the pirate follows and stumbles into the trap, shivering and cold he tries to lift his arm to fire a shot at you. Casually you walk over and the pistol from his hands and bring it to his head. He can't move and you are almost certain he already died from the cold but you pull the trigger anyways and his head shatters into bloody shards of frozen bone and meat. Gore has been holding his own but there are still a few more pirates close to him. Are you going to assist him or you going to head straight inside and deal with the next room?>Head inside, he can take care of himself>Assist him, better not go in alone>>443884I don't think I have ever seen you roll above a 7. How do you make it through games Anti?
>>443905Through cunning. When luck isn't on your side. Minimize chances. Does make me feel cheap once in a while though.
>>443905>Assist. Hack and slash and toss a bolt of lightning here and there.
>AssistLeaving him behind won't help you clear out rooms any faster, you should help him out. One pirate jumps back from a slash that would have ended him, you don't let him get the wrong idea about him and fate. His head rolls in front of his feet, another pirate distracted by the sudden addition of a new foes is quickly turned into a red paste. The last pirate takes the coward's way out and shoots himself in the head, well the front of the manor is clear now. Time to go inside, stepping into the front entrance the shots of several pistols going off force you back out. A massive pain is running through your left shoulder, shit one actually got you. Gore isn't unscathed either and has a new hole in his right forearm, you bother were lucky all things considered. But how are you going to clear this room? Rushing in isn't an option, so magic it is unless you want to try seeing if you can use the bombs off your new dead friends?>Magic (d20+4)>Bombs (d20)

>6, Fail>BombsLet's see how much damage you can do with one of these bombs. Collecting some up without putting yourself into line of sight is relatively easy. You stand next to the door, just light and toss. Light and toss. Light toss. You give the bomb a light toss through the doorway and you hear a few shouts and scrambles to the floor. Silence. You hear a few footsteps then a laugh, a lit bomb comes back out the door. Welp fuck.

"Remember to light it this ti-" Your not sure if the explosion killed him or merely drowned out his voice, either way mission accomplished. Stepping inside no one is pointing guns at you, either because they are dead or they are trying to find their bearing. Gore steps in and quickly covers the scorch marks on the walls and floor with a healthy coat of red. Time to go to the next room, the meeting room. Opening the door there is only a lone soul in there, Wyatt. "Thought you'd come back. Why don't you and I settle this like men." He draws his cutlass, will you accept his request?>Honor his request, sword fight>Who needs honor, magicRoll d20+4

"I am surprised you know of honor, Butcher" "Honor is reserved for the strong, let's see if you are worthy of it" He makes the first move with a quick jab forward, you deflect the hit. Another jab at you which again you deflect, he is rather fast but he shouldn't be too much to handle. You go for a vertical slash after the deflect, he sidesteps your attack and goes a slash on your left side. You armor catches it but the jarring reminds you of the fact you have a fucking bullet in your shoulder.

5, Critical FailHonor is the name of the game here and skill will take his life. You go for a slash across his chest, and he just casually steps back. He is making you look like a fool, you need to change the tide of battle, trying a flurry of blows to overwhelm him. Blocked, blocked, deflected, blocked, parried. This man is a machine, you have yet to even put a scratch on him. "You journey ends here, Butcher" Anger washes over you, going for a heavy swing it should meet it mark. You feel no resistance when you should have, and looking over Wyatt's shoulder you can see why. Your khopesh is sunk deep into the wall, your slash accidentally became a throw. A pain drives through your right shoulder, there is a sword in it but quickly leaves and is held to your throat "Final words?">Fuck you>Not today2d20 and how will you get out of this mess?

>>444682Oh what is it?
>1, Critical Failure"Not Today" You start to lift your arm, Wyatt drives the sword through your throat. Instinctively you grasp your throat, warm blood is spilling on to the front of your armor. Truly a gruesome sight, blood is starting to pool below you. You can't concentrate enough to cast healing wind, and it probably is too late for that anyway. Is this really how you die? It has been 12 years since you last had that thought, do you finally get the answer today? You hear screaming and metal hitting metal, but you are too tired to see what is going on. For the first time in your life you are cold but you don't shiver. It's hard to keep your eyes open, maybe you will rest them for a moment and figure something out later. It doesn't feel cold anymore, it feels like nothing. And you don't feel tired anymore. Open your eyes?>Yes>No
>>444693Open em. (Actually I wasn't able to play)
>>444690I run "A Safe Haven" Quest.
>YesYou open your eyes and they are greeted to a hellscape none like you could have ever imagined. People chained to walls with their own bones and sinew, twisted versions of homes and hearths devouring and eviscerating those who wandered near, and wraiths wandering acting as jailers and wardens with no one to keep their depravity in check. In all honesty you wouldn't mind this place so much if you were its ruler and not an occupant, a wraith releases you from your bindings and gestures for you to follow it. Seeing no option otherwise you comply, it takes you on a twisted path through this realm showcasing some if more intricate torturing and punishment of the damned. Arriving at a throne of skulls and spines you meet the ruler of this realm. You notice the similarities of yourself and him immediately, and your recognize those burning eyes. "You arrive too early, whelp" How do you even respond?>Sorry?>Who you calling whelp?
>>444740>No fucking shit. Let's get this done with, we don't exactly have eternity.
>>444740>Who you calling whelp?
"Well that's a fucking shocker. I could tell because there weren't any fucking balloons or confetti. And I'm the goddamn Overlord not a whelp, I don't give a fuck who you are. No disrespects me." The ruler laughs "I was The Overlord before you were even a twinkle in your father's eye and before he was a twinkle in mine. Wait what? He continues "Let's cut to the chance, you died. Clearly this is bad for you, and it is bad for me as well. I can send you back to just before the moment you died. Here's the catch, I will take something that is yours. A trait, an attribute, an ability, or something you hold close, it doesn't matter to me. Well that's totally a reasonable deal.... >Offer up something (Strength, Endurance, Magic, Precognition, Write-in)>No deal (End of thread?)Last post tonight
>>444827So what if we give up will we need to work it up again or is it not that simple.
>>444842Sorry should have explained that, For a Stat You give up your progress and it can be worked up again. When you give up something it will be set to a score of -3. Abilities like precog you just lose but if you are resourceful you can find a way to get it againThe more you die the worse these deals are going to get
>>444827>Offer up Frenzy because attack with reckless abandon almost always ends badly for us.
>>444871I'll back this.
>>444827He wants something we have, and he can supernaturally take it.He wants us alive, clearly, so we can help him later.What if we 'offered' our mortality? Surely, to some, mortality is a blessing - being unable to die for all eternity can be seen as a curse. But, to two overlords in cahoots, it's a beneficial sacrifice for sure. That's assuming he can even accept that deal, though - it's probable that he might not be capable of the task, since it's an attempt at getting a favorable outcome out of what should be a punishment.
>>444944Changing to this.

>>445316Oh, huh.I assumed it wouldn't be required to be mortal to actually stay on the mortal plane, since undead and presumably other kinds of immortals are present there. Though, it may just be because of exactly how he returns us to before our death - the method very well might require us to remain mortal.Guess we're gonna have to search for that fabled immortality with a less easy method, then. I'm willing to offer up frenzy too, since mortality is a losing option.
>Though, it may just be because of exactly how he returns us to before our death - the method very well might require us to remain mortal.Returning you after the moment of death would just make you a shambling corpse held together with magic. The Netherghuls are the only undead recorded to have consciousness and only Gnarl knows how to make them. And clearly they didn't pan out last time so his willingness to make you one is small to say the least.
>>445333Nice trips dioPerhaps we should start looking into established methods of gaining immortality if we want to be an eternal overlord. Or, if there are none, perhaps we can begin experiments of our own. I personally think lifeforce might be the key to increasing one's lifespan and power - if it can strengthen weapons and armor, why not the overlord himself? And, since minions are born of the lifeforce of another, perhaps we can devise a method to try to strengthen an already existent minion with additional lifeforce, rather than using it to birth excess minions. Yes, I definitely think that we ought to start some lifeforce research and experimentation when we get back to the tower. There's bound to be a lot of potential in such studies.

>Offer up Frenzy"The deal is made, this will not be the last time we meet. Pray that it is not these circumstances again." You want to ask him something but before you can your body is engulfed in flames, you can hear laughter before your vision fades to black again. "Final words?" Your vision returns and Wyatt again is standing in front you holding a sword to your throat. Did you imagine what just happened? No, you are sure it did happen.

>16, Success"You can't stop me, no one can stop me" You grab the cutlass before he can drive it into your throat like last time, he tries thrusting the sword the rest of the way through but your grasp holds firm. Ice engulfs the length of the blade and with just minimal effort you shatter it, you start preparing a domination spell. Wyatt throws the remain part to the side. "I see we have abandoned honor, good." He pulls out two flintlocks and aims them at you. This is a turn of events but you are still confident you'll kill him if not make him you mind slave. The spell is ready and you unleash it on him, he pulls both triggers. A bullet glances off your armor, and Wyatt drops to his knees. Yes you are... Wyatt slumps to the ground, his brains coating the ceiling. Pity, he would have made a good servant. You need to continue through if you are ever going to get to the captain. The next room is empty of pirates and just before you go to enter the next room your eye catches the sight of someone outside. Do you head outside and confront them or continue through the manor?>Confront>Continue

>ConfrontOne person isn't much of a threat but you learned you lesson about underestimating a single opponent and bad luck. Heading outside the sun is in your eyes so it is difficult to see but it looks like a woman standing by the cliff. You walk up slowly, "Surrender now and I can guarantee you will not be killed." She doesn't turn to face you, "So you are the one trying to take over the cove. I was expecting we could hold out a little longer than we did" Hmm, She must be a wife or wench of a member of the crew. "What can I offer to keep it under our control?" Wait you recognize this, your vision before you left. This woman is the one that controls everything, which means... A large sack of gold drops at your feet, intuition tells you it is the price you tried negotiating earlier with Wyatt. She turns to face you and you finally get a good look at her, Skin tanned from long voyages out to sea and long hair as black as tar. "If gold isn't what you are after then tell me what you want" What is your price? Is the gold enough? It is definitely passed when you originally wanted it by, but gold is gold. Or is your price a bit more carnal in nature? She is definitely of good stock.>Accept the gold, better late than never>Her, gold is too little too late

My men will back down, but let's get one thing straight. It is still MY cove, not OUR cove." Feisty.

8, FailBefore you go maybe you can have them teach you the ways of using flintlocks and bombs effectively, this however was too much to hope for. A lot of the flintlocks are too small for your hands to handle properly and the prep time to even load them is unbearable. How did these ever become a staple of piracy? They are clunky, inaccurate beyond just a few paces, and have no sort of reliability. They don't work if they get wet, they don't work if you prep them too long ahead of time, and they don't work if there isn't enough powder. Might as well beat them with the bloody thing. Bombs are easier, right? No. They can fail just as easily too, and there isn't even a rhyme or reason why. Light the bomb, throw the bomb, doesn't go off. But you drop them too hard and they'll make you regret you for it. Now you understand why pirates have eye patches, hook hands and peg legs. The weapon is more reliably going to kill you then your opponent, you'll stick your sword and magic.>Head back to The UnderspireThis trip was exhausting, time to relax. "You call that a dagger? This is a dagger, red. And looks like you got your knives covered but maybe you should keep them on the side of your belt not the side of your head." Fuck.

Eva peeks over your shoulder and then adjusts the map before sticking a dagger into it "Blue things like your are there, no need to thank me you can just grovel later. Oh and watch out for mermaids, they'll ruin your day in a heartbeat." And just as she entered she is gone.

>>446930First off, send Gore to the arena to be the champion of that place. He's going to increase revenue and fame for sure, especially if we get some custom armor made for him - he's an elite member of our army, and he should look the part damnit. We want everyone to know that THIS is the might of someone who merely SERVES the overlord.Second, we should begin researching alternative uses of Lifeforce, like I mentioned a few posts back.If sending gore to the arena is a free action, then my other choice for the day is to train stealth since we could have sorely used it last time. If it WASNT a free action, then just ignore this part then.
Rolled 2 (1d3)>Audit and InspectionYou domain will not expect a second audit so quickly after the first, but it is as effective as expected. In your entire domain, bar Cutter's Cove, a total of 47 gold is unaccounted for. Impressive really, you've gotten them quite into shape. Inspection of the villages shows the previous issues they once had have been resolved for now. Someone is bound to fuck it up and you will be there to turn their mind into paste. Cutter's Cove is the model for bookkeeping surprisingly but you did get a look at the ledgers before, no gold is left unaccounted for. 1, Talk2, New Weapon3, Train

>Gore up the Arena (Free Action)The arena was teetering on getting dull without some actual gladiators going into it, Gore will certainly breathe new life into it. It will also double as showing how powerful your non minion army is, if anything you might get an influx of volunteers. Many initially believe Gore is a prisoner sent in to die, only you have entered the arena before and no one recognizes him. However it becomes abundantly clear afterwards, you control a monster guising as a human. Nevertheless the people love Gore, not as much as you though, and many strapping young lads want to be just as strong as him when they grow up. You should get more gladiators for the arena. >New WeaponYou've been doing a damn fine job and you are going to treat yourself to a new weapon but what will it be?>Another Khopesh, because why not learn dual wielding>A whip, really play that dominating theme>Write in

Silently walking is what she eventually settles with. She demonstrates by walking from about 10 meters away to right behind you without a single step echoing through the chamber. The how process is literally learning how to walk again, planting your toes first then slowly setting down the ball of your foot and finally your heel.

Initial examination shows an immediate fix, they are lobbing there fireballs rather than actually throwing them. Quickly you teaching them how to actually throw a fireball and their range is improved by 75%. Reflecting back on it you do find it odd while they can produce fireballs they don't actually get propelled forward by magic, maybe it is just too much mana to bother with for them or maybe even that degree of magic is just impossible for them.

>22, Success (?)Time to dust off some books and do some research. "Lifeforce is the energy in all beings that allow them to live. Undead can contain life force and the general consensus is that high amounts of mana bind lifeforce to their body and allow for interaction with the world even after death. Ghosts while made of energy do not drop lifeforce when slain, this leads many to the belief of lifeforce and the soul being two separate components of life. Interestingly, animals that are below the size of an average dog do not always drop lifeforce when killed, scholars are in debate what this could point to but some say that is simply means the creature was meant to die soon through natural processes. This maybe be supported by the fact some creatures drop more than one orb of lifeforce upon death, this could mean that lifeforce dropped is simply excess life that they were supposed to live and through intervention were denied death via natural processes. Well that was a read, you wonder how much of that is true and what can be extrapolated from it.>Year 12, Month 12>Browns x2035>Reds x200>Greens x200>Total Gold: 30.4k>(Pick 2)>Order a new weapon>Order a new piece of armor>Train(Specify)>Take in a request from village(Specify)>Destroy Village(Specify)>Dominate Village(Specify)>Talk to a Mistress>Research (Specify)>Improve minion burrows (10k per hive)>Write in
>>449449Creatures that drop more than one orb must either be powerful, or have a long lifespan ahead of them, or some combination of the two.

Rolled 2 (1d10)>Train Battle ForesightIf your duel with Wyatt made anything clear it was your mortality and your battle foresight is taking too long to get going, only one of those you can change easily. Training with Lysandra you realize the problem, when you initially developed the skill you expected fights to last longer and be against people with skill just about matching your own. This was a flawed idea because either you were just superior in skill and might and overwhelmed them or you get lucky and the fight ends quickly after you start to lose. After these training sessions you get the battle foresight to start working around 12 seconds (Start of 3rd round of combat). This should help with foes with a similar skill level while not having to worry about the lower end enemies making you use it.>Research moreodds>Train Strength/Enduranceevens
>Train Strength/EnduranceLet's see how your favorite gladiator is doing. It's not time for him to go into the arena so he is inspecting his gear and performing maintenance on it, it takes him a full day to just to sharpen the edge on his sword. You try investigating into his past but he is vague about it just telling you something unforgivable happened and he will kill the one responsible. This is interesting to you, people dominated by your magic shouldn't be able to be vague. Maybe he is under the compulsion of another magic? But why?

He still isn't completely adjusted to his new armor and you'll take advantage to that, you rush forward. Gore delivers a mighty swing which could have easily ended your existence but you leaped out of the way just in time and close the distance. With a heavy swing of your own you knock off Gore's helmet and bring your blade right to his throat. The match is yours in no time at all. "Again" Gore challenges you to another fight, do you agree? This was rather one side maybe you should make it more of a spectacle for the crowd.>Yes>No

Kicking the back of his knee in you bring the edge of your blade to his visor. The match is yours again with minimal effort. Long time arena goers know what this means, you are on a completely different tier of power and skill. Anyone who doubted you because your first showing in the arena are forever impressed, you must be a demon to beat Gore so easily. Fear initially fills the arena before the cheers do, there will be know third match.

>16, Success (?)Time again to research again. Lifeforce's origins are unknown. The Elves believe that it is created and placed into all beings by the Mother Goddess and the She has an eternal amount of Lifeforce, this claim is supported by the fact that even new born creatures have lifeforce. The Dwarves claim that it comes from deep within the earth and trickles through and is spread naturally by the consumption of other creatures, this is supported by the ability to absorb lifeforce of a recently felled creature. Lifeforce is still a difficult thing to study because of the nature of it. You cannot see what it is directly causing inside of a living being, attempting to touch it will cause it to be immediately absorbed, and letting it sit will cause it to eventually to evaporate. One interesting characteristic of lifeforce is that with quick thinking and enough you can revive a fallen creature by reinserting its lifeforce into it. This only works with the creature's dropped lifeforce, any attempt to use substituted lifeforce will create an undead. This points towards lifeforce playing an integral role to binding the soul to the body.

This will most certainly start a chain reaction of only getting her help by bribing her with something or the other mistresses wanting gifts of just as ludicrously expensive. But you have secured the help of Eva. Leaving almost immediately after her guns come in you find your first snag in the trek, the coastal caves the blues are supposedly in are filled with water knee deep.

Interesting results, you'll have to study this further. For now you won't need it, small beams of light are coming through lighting your path.

Your question came off unexpectedly deep, Eva hesitates to answer for just a moment. "Sail to a far away place and finally stop concerning myself with ghosts." Well better shift topics again, "How do you like the guns? They cost me a lot to get them ready this quickly." Eva inspects one of them, "I think you are an idiot for completely bankrupting the treasury for a request. That being said... I'm glad you did get them. Pirates take pride in their weapons. A matching of 3 is a rare sight, I might be the only one in all of the eastern sea to have a set match so well. Just need a new set of daggers after this."

>24, Critical SuccessYour blood is boiling, the mermaid is going to regret its very existence. Blasting an ice shard through the rock wall about as wide as you are it destroys the wall and skewers the mermaid to the wall behind her. Eva didn't even get a chance to fire a shot, "Remind me to not piss you off" You let out a short laugh, got a little carried away taking care of that mermaid. A rock falls into the water, then another and another. You can hear the rock above you buckling and shifting, grabbing Eva you throw her farther down the cave tunnel right before the ceiling caves in. "Bloody idiot now we're split up" she calls from the crumpled wall. She's right and this will take too long to clear away and more magic might just make it worse. "Just stay there I'll find a way around" You hear grumbling but no actual words.Choose who you will act as>The Overlord, he is the Main Character after all>Eva, she isn't a damsel to be savedLast Post of the night
