The Raiders – Part 24While most Lairs are relatively small and easily defensible, this is more like a stronghold than a Lair, and carving your place into it was much easier than you'd expected. Despite a late arrival in this material world, you managed to wrest a choice location in the Lair for you and your cadre, create a good number of holding cells for your slaves (though now that you consider it you're going to probably need to make things slightly more comfortable than bare rock....if only to prevent bruising), and have made a tenuous alliance with a nearby cadre for added security. The Leader of that cadre, Joerno, is fairly charming, and has a healthy respect for you, but he is also fiercely intelligent, in addition to being a potent warrior.Which isn't exactly heartening because you have all the time in the world to consider in what ways me might be driven to betray you.Fortunately, you have the distraction of a worried murderer to deal with, one whom is easily distracted herself. As Falna and Schechei erect the opulent and gorgeous tent that will serve as a home away from home, Yashi crafts illusion, fog, spell, and ward to defend your part of the Lair from others who might consider it much easier to collect slaves from you than to collect their own. Auena and Kteine are stalking the area and discussing the necessary supplies, beds, and other accouterments that would provide for the slaves that you and your cadre already own being present to take care of things while you and your Cadre are out collecting more. The gallery that you have taken is large and there is plenty of room for both homemaking and more expansions as needed. Yzia is delicately accosting the supreme Leader's dragon concerning her clever replacement by the Holder of the Compact, who has some kind of vested interest in Yzia and in some respects, yourself.You should probably get around to telling Yzia you learned one of Jacinth's names sometime. Later perhaps. Tzanzi is breathing heavily as you run your hands over her bosom, armored though it is. “Do not tell me you are concerned for my well being – you are most likely the greatest threat to that currently.” A little white lie of sorts; Tzanzi is usually the greatest threat to your well being outside yourself, though Yashi might come a close second. Just because Yashi will apparently follow you into the Hells doesn't mean she won't set you up for fights and assassination.
“No, I don't think so,” she murmurs into your hair, before inhaling deeply through her nose, taking in your scent. The atavistic shiver is unstoppable; the sense of a mouth so close to your precious brains is so deeply ingrained into your entire race that you cannot help even now being aware of the threat. Does not help that Tzanzi bites anyways, of course. “I am much more concerned about Falna, and this unsteady new alliance you have forged. This is a large cadre, Akko, and I do not think it is entirely stable.”You look up at Tzanzi, your arms about her neck as Auena and Kteine join Falna and Schechei in the large silk and satin tent, their voices soft. The sound of the Lair is muted as a shifting mist surrounds the gallery, Yashi's efforts to secure the Lair taking effect. With a sigh you push yourself up on your toes and kiss the warrior again, slow and deep, tracing the sharp spurs with your tongue, including the broken one she refused to let you heal magically. Honestly, would any cadre I put together be stable? I know of at at least one githyanki who is willing to try and replace Falna.... Do tell, and stop using those damn claws or I'm going to make you take Yzia's place. Tell me about Joerno then, you probably know of him already to be this concerned. Oh ye of little faith, if I'd wanted a stable cadre I would have formed one. Write in?Siobhan is curious now too, and would be very interested in having a tête-à-tête with Tzanzi to discuss how they'll fix your – oh sorry, Yzia's – cadre.

Hi XS!>>1700256>You've seen me deal with the unstable. What makes you worried now and not before?>Is it because we're on the Material Plane, with who-knows-what foes roaming around? Or do you think the other Githyanki might give Falna or one of the rival leaders an edge?
>>1700256>[X] Do tell, and stop using those damn claws or I'm going to make you take Yzia's place.>[X] Tell me about Joerno then, you probably know of him already to be this concerned.>As long as I don't go out of my to antagonize Falna, which I suppose I'd be willing to do, I think I've reached an understanding with her. You disagree?Hi XS, sorry I missed you were starting early! How are you tonight and is your friend/pet okay?
>>1700334Too much smoke in the air (hence my missing Ryukusa this week) and she is better now. Still messed up, but better. Gastric bypass surgery does not agree with her, but they can't undo it. Also, fuck SF traffic, seriously.
[X] Tell me about Joerno then, you probably know of him already to be this concerned.[+] Write in? Your concerns are peculiar even for our natural paranoia. Do you suspect something, or do you think I am more flighty than usual?You lower yourself, careful not to allow your armor to catch on hers. You look into her eye, and caress the scars along her face, tracing the dead lines of tissue that have no sensation save pressure for her. She slides her hands to your wrists, gently grasping them but not preventing you from caressing her in a manner others would never be allowed to. If they even dared to do so, or cared to do so. Recalling her comment about your gaze – that you look upon her without making her feel crippled or damaged – you can't help the slight frown that crosses your lips.Tzanzi notices and smiles faintly, but doesn't interrupt your thoughts. She instead kisses your knuckles, lightly and softly, making you shiver in response to performing a caress on you that you typically inflict on others. “Do you believe that Falna would try and garner support agaisnt me from other Leaders, or even the supreme Leader? Or perhaps you think that this particular combination of especially volatile people is dangerous?” She blinks, both eyes closing though only one needs the effort. “Perhaps it is that we are facing unusual foes in situations that favor them, and would make potential betrayals that much more excusable.”Yashi rises, and studies you and Tzanzi from a distance, her ancient eyes and placid expression unreadable. She traces the smooth lines of her emerald staff lightly, the polish of the cold iron banding gleaming in the were-lights cast by other cadres from afar, even to eyes that need no light to see. The slight baring of the tips of your spurs seems to interest her, the equivalent of a smirk among your species drawing her attention further.
Tzanzi slowly pulls one of the rings from your finger, one of the Prisoner rings that you have used on both cadre and slaves alike. She contemplates the decorative cloisonné of shimmering glass-enamel and delicate brass. “Your love of drama, your need to stave off ennui is understandable....but even your keen intellect and the deep understanding you have of our kind is not infallible, Akko.” She looks at you and slowly slides the ring over her finger, almost suggestively. Instantly you are aware of her heartbeat, her breaths, the subtle currents of her mind as she contemplates you.“Perhaps, but I believe Falna will maintain her dignity and honor in this case. It is Schechei who deserves the opportunity, not Falna. While I may purposefully antagonize her at times, I would like to take her at her word this one time at least. She may yet win Kteine back, but betraying me against will not do that for her.” You rise up and trace the damage along her left ear, the injuries of acid and razor teeth. You embrace her at eye level, your spells allowing you to move with as much ease and grace as you would in the Astral. “Tell me what is truly bothering you, Tzanzi. We have served together in too many ways for me to believe that it is this simple an issue. Do you suspect Joerno to be capable of colluding with Falna?”She wraps her arms about your relatively slender waist, her gaze serious as she meets your eyes with her good one. “Joerno is no fool. He is not your equal in any way, but he is cunning, more so than you are. So are Kteine and Auena, however, and I will trust them to keep you safe where I cannot.” You narrow your eyes suspiciously. The grin you receive in reply is wry. “Truly, Akko, your choices are sometimes ridiculously insane in comparison to most. Drinking the blood of your dragon? Hardly a wise decision by any measure.” Her soft nuzzle takes a lot of the bite out of the insults.….unfortunately, she has a point, even if it gave you insight into the making of the Silver Swords. You're right, and I'll keep it in mind, but I think you're reaching. I will rely on the ones I trust to help me when I must, then. Then I will have to trust you and Yzia to protect me out of enlightened self interest. So should I maim her, use my spells to weaken her permanently? Schechei is salvageable, even if Falna is not; she owes me greatly, and admitted as much. Write in?Siobhan is not entirely sure where you are going with your lines of reasoning....you should just admit you want the twins for yourself and arrange it.
>>1700426>I'd argue that I've gotten results from my actions, but I suppose you're correct that they haven't exactly made me -safer-.What do you guys think the difference is between  I will rely on the ones I trust to help me when I must, then.and Then I will have to trust you and Yzia to protect me out of enlightened self interest.Is it mostly that the latter is limiting people we trust to just Yzia and Tzanzi?

My decisions are driven by thoughts deeper and more complex than I could dare explain....and perhaps by a few feelings. Despite that....You pull back, more to look her in the eyes than to escape the embrace, which isn't what you are after. “Are you suggesting that I demonstrate my skills and power in such a manner that leaves Falna wounded permanently, or mentally damaged?” Your calm, matter of fact question seems to reassure Tzanzi, rather than worry her, and Yashi's eyes widen slightly; she might not be close enough to ear but she can read your lips. Information you tuck away fro another turning. “I am having a hard time deciding what it is you are concerned by so much that you are hesitant, Tzanzi. Why are you are nervous about Falna betraying me again?”Her nails dig into the chain-mail that protects your lower back again and pulls your hips into her waist. You oblige her and wrap your legs about her hips, your hands sliding to caress the tendons and soft skin along her neck. The faint rush of blood through her veins and arteries caresses your fingertips; you close your eyes, reveling in her life. “That would make me feel better, yes,” she admits far too readily. “Her skills have improved, more so than my own. She may not be as capable of you, but I still do not trust her not to do something extraordinarily foolish.” You open your eyes and Tzanzi gazes into yours with an intensity that is a little startling. “You are valuable, and not only to me, but to our cause, Akko. We cannot afford to lose you.”With a sigh you pull yourself close, your hands caressing her cheeks, sliding through the fall of thick, obsidian hair. “Very well. I will rely on your words, and trust in those that I can afford to have faith in.” You lick her throat and she cranes her neck, exposing the tender flesh to your mouth. You close your mouth over her soft arteries and the tight, powerful tendons that protect them, your spurs pressing dimples into her skin as you lick the softness hard. Even if they are counted among those Tzanzi does not trust, you add silently knowing she cannot hear you but that Siobhan and Yashi can, punctuating your decision with a firm bite. You're careful not to break skin, however. Siobhan murmurs hot little lust-songs in your head.
Tzanzi gasps, her body stiffening as you inflict on her the pleasure-threats she enjoys inflicting on you so much. You slide your hands deep into her hair and bite harder, moving your body along hers suggestively. She shudders and you pull away, leaving delicate scratches with your spurs that quickly become beaded with sapphire droplets, a deeper, richer sapphire in a place with truly breathable air. “I think that you are borrowing trouble that will never materialize....but I will be wary for the peace of mind it grants you. In any case, much of what I do is for Schechei and Kteine's sake; Falna is a mere hanger on in comparison. They are going to be valuable to the war against the enemy.” The relief she feels is almost palpable as you gently extricate yourself and float away from her. Not entirely for the release from your gentle violence, either.. “Please join the others, I need to make arrangements for such eventualities that you suggest.” A gesture, a few words murmured, a merest fragment of the arcane force you collect, and her mask leaps into your hand. “For now, this is as I wish it; this....selection is effective for what I want and need, dramatis personae withstanding. I will attempt to keep my tendency to cause myself issues to a minimum.” And the twins are not mine to play with; they are valuable, and a love story will make them stronger for each other, or destroy them both. Unacceptable. The latter, of course, is solely for Siobhan. You affix Tzanzi's mask in place slowly as she stares at you in disbelief, your plans further along than she had expected. Not that you had intended it that way from the start, perhaps, but it won't hurt!“....as you command, my Leader,” she murmurs, saluting you and watching you with her one good eye, seeming mollified for thee moment.You watch her leave and before Yashi can follow her into the tent you motion her close. Make a private ceremony of giving her the sword she wants from you. Ask her if she would like her sword delivered in front of the cadre. Test how much she trusts her wards and guards by having her strip naked for you. Confront her directly about how she might use Falna against you. See if she will wear one of your Prisoner Rings. Write in?Siobhan thinks you did right by Tzanzi, but she is uncertain that your assessment is correct.
>>1700510Wow, so we can chat with Tzanzi without it coming to violent sex! Good to know.> Confront her directly about how she might use Falna against you.> Ask her if she would like her sword delivered in front of the cadre.
>>1700510>[X] Test how much she trusts her wards and guards by having her strip naked for you.>[X] Ask her if she would like her sword delivered in front of the cadre.I mean, I definitely wouldn't really say no to Kteine fucking us if she wanted to, but I'm not really interested in anything deeper with her. Also Schechei seems currently off limits due to Githyanki psychology, like maybe if she and Kteine mated they'd be willing to enjoy us, but eh....Might be nice to leer at Kteiene and Schechei, and maybe even with Falna in the mix if she at least maintains the current levels of not fucking up.
>>1700508>Her skills have improved, more so than my own.Is Tzanzi saying that Falna is stronger than her? Or is it more that she's not quite there yet but she's getting close to surpassing her?I hadn't really considered that as an option after hearing about what an amazing deal Tzanzi was, and how effortlessly we defeated Falna even if her resolve was shot.
>>1700510> Test how much she trusts her wards and guards by having her strip naked for you.> See if she will wear one of your Prisoner Rings.Test her boundaries, then> Make a private ceremony of giving her the sword she wants from you.
>>1700524Akko herself knows that Falna, when she isn't mindfucking herself, is a very good warrior. Tzanzi is legendary, but she also knows that flana's improvements in skill outmatch her improvement.She's admitting she's reaching her peak potential, and Flana has not yet done so. Tzanzi is a high ranking murderer, while Falna is a mid ranked warrior striving for high ranked warrior. Tzanzi is around 17-20th level pureblade slayer, Falna was 10th-12th fighter, but has grown, perhaps as high as 15th-17th in Tzanzi's estimation and based on her comparison to Akko.. Tzanai isn't entirely aware of how Akko's abilities have expanded in much different directions, though she is now aware that Akko's magic is MUCH improved since last they Raided together.
>>1700531Hmmm, I'd say Falna's leveling abnormally quickly, but I suppose that would be silly given Akko's progress since the start of the quest. Although Akko has performed a decent number of feats, so I wonder how Falna earned hers. Hard training perhaps.
>>1700535You also have to remember that time isn't exactly a typical factor in such growthfrom another githyanki's point of view - that growth could have been over decades.
>>1700510> Confront her directly about how she might use Falna against you.> Ask her if she would like her sword delivered in front of the cadre.
>>1700538Man, it is pretty impressive that the Githyanki have adjusted to the Astral Plane as well as they have, considering it exists outside of time as we know it, though I guess by that factor, they weren't exactly rushed to adjust to it.
>>1700510>[X] Confront her directly about how she might use Falna against you.
[X] Test how much she trusts her wards and guards by having her strip naked for you.[XX] Confront her directly about how she might use Falna against you.[XX] Ask her if she would like her sword delivered in front of the cadre.Yashi's movements are slightly stilted and hesitant, though you know that's because she's not used to dealing with real gravity as opposed to gravity she can adjust while moving. She is already adapting however, and you land lightly, watching her and working pretty hard at keeping the smile from your face as she struggles with movement in the material world. Siobhan doesn't have to hide her amusement from you of course, which makes it even worse.When she arrives she looks at you seriously, her delicate features nearly blank. Those pale eyes gaze into yours without fear or trepidation at the moment, and the urge to instill fear in them once more is strong. You suspect your blood is still hot from the anticipation of violence with Joerno's cadre. Fortunately, you have something that you can use to cure that.Strip to your skin and jewels, Yashi. I want to see you bare.You told Yashi that githyanki lack the body-shyness of other races, but that was at home, in a Stronghold, with allies and knights a thought away. This is the material world, a dangerous and harsher place, with potential enemies hardly a stone's throw away. Yashi, who has never been subjected to it's intense....well, for lack of a better word, reality, wouldn't be refusing out of shame for her body, but fear for her life.An entirely justified fear that she has already mentioned to you.Yet that tiny, delicate smile crosses her tender lips, and she slowly goes to her knees before you (undoubtedly remembering several luscious images you gave her to consider during your arrival flight), sets her staff aside, and starts unbuckling the leather armor and gear she wears. Her eyes remain on yours as she slowly strips off the sleek mithril-studded and highly decorated armor, along with her regalia. You can't help but enjoy the slowly building liquid heat in your body, as she bares herself: armor, padding, clothing slowly falling away and neatly set aside by the Unseen Servant you conjured. Her eyes never leave yours, save when she must divest herself of some piece of clothing or to blink.You trust in your wards and defenses that much, do you? You reach down, sliding your hand through the tight ringlets and waves of her hair, tracing the delicate chains and jewels in her ear.
Her gaze doesn't waver or shift at all, her attention upon your nearly glowing red eyes. Taking your lead, she responds in silence, but with that rich, nearly otherworldly mixture of emotion, image and words that serves her as telepathy. I am a not rarity even in the Stronghold, Akko, yet one whose work and spells are of a necessity mostly of my own devising. If I did not protect myself well, then what I know, what I am capable of others would be capable of just as easily. I am not an invaluable resource like you or Tzanzi. I must make my value higher than that of others who are spellcasters. She bares her sleek, delicate body, still marked and bruised in small amounts from her play with Tzanzi. So my defenses must be perfect by design and out of necessity. I trust them with more than merely my life.Naked save for her delicate and well designed rings, shimmering mithril and sapphire bracers, a wide and thick necklace of ruby lozenges backed by silver plating, and a belt of delicate chains around her hip that all fasten to a ring of gleaming platinum above the dark curls that crown her otherwise bare slit, she remains kneeling before you. The diadem she wears is silver as well, studded with tiny diamonds save for a large, glistening black opal that burns with flecks of alien fire.She smiles wickedly before she opens her mouth and lets her tongue unfurl, the shining gold and silver studs now joined by a faceted ruby in the center of her tongue, purposefully cut sharp. Just for you, you suspect. Have her ply that tongue while you question her. Play with her tongue a bit before you indulge yourself, you need those answers. See if you make her nervous at all, as you inquire about her plans and desires. Draw Siobhan, see how well she maintains her calm when she sees what you have done. Take out the blade you promised her as you question her. Write in?Siobhan wants to play with her too....maybe see how complex that mind REALLY is....

Even if she's not my favorite Raider, there's something uniquely erotic about Yashi. But I suppose that's her carefully curated strength, hardly a coincidence.
How long do we have until we need to ne ready to raid? Do we have some downtime to get settled, distribute swords, etc?

With slow, deliberate movements you stand before her and reach down, as though to a feral begging for your touch. Yashi watches you with those pale yellow eyes of hers, the faint smile still touching the edges of her mouth as she presents the pierced length of her tongue to you. Your heart beats a little faster as you slowly trace the soft, warm flesh of her tongue, the piercings shining faintly.I do not even have to ask if you would use Falna's jealousy and hate against me, Yashi, you murmur into her mind, not so much accusing as merely stating the facts. To her credit she does not deny the fact. Tzanzi cannot hide her suspicions from you if you are in the room. You do not even need to hear her voice to know what concerns her. The question is, of course, when you would turn her against me for your own amusement. Perhaps not even why....but then again....Her breath is hot against your hand as she starts to pant softly, her eyes not leaving your face though yours are trained on her delicate, warm, glittering tongue. You feel the sharp edges of the ruby-topped stud in the center of her tongue, roll your fingertips over it, wonder how it would feel against your petals, your clitoris. How she might cause it to catch at the edge of an opening if you failed to give her the attention she demanded. She doesn't reply, of course, content to be subservient for the moment.You slowly take her tongue between forefinger and thumb, catching onto the soft flesh using the studs as leverage. I cannot help but notice how you dote on our pretty little psychic twin. How she supports you without instruction. Her eyes narrow ever so slightly, and she leans into the light but inescapable pull against her tongue. You are not used to competition against another, are you, my sleek little beauty. Maybe once, long ago, you would have had to face challengers to your desire, but now you prefer to be the meat that the ferals battle over. Not to want a delectable and naive beauty of your own to admire and play with. So....it would be much easier were Schechei and her mate no longer competition.
I would never dare to place the cadre in an untenable position, my Leader, she protests, though mildly. You believe her – to an extent – but it would be foolish to believe her absolutely. Kteine is....very soft, very....ignorant. She is something that could be cultivates, a gem unpolished and uncut that could become invaluable.looking down at her, it's hard to call her a liar. You see the same things, but you also know how old this creature is, how desperate for anything to kill the endless moments of the Astral as she waits for duty to arrive. Even as a guardian of the Stronghold, a protector of the home that you have claimed as your own, there is far too much time to be filled in sleepless eternities. You take a much more firm grip on her tongue and bare your spurs to her, a grimace of dire threat as she gasps and leans forward a little more, her hands falling to the smooth stone floor and playing out to keep her upright.When you draw Siobhan she isn't too alarmed; you aren't one of those who only draw when you are about to kill someone. Except for that tall, all too wary warrior Kteine's lover is mated to. Tell me how you would turn her on me, Yashi, tell me how she would try and kill me for your pleasure? How you would release Kteine from her bondage of love and hope? She breathes in desperate, hot little gasps, her eyes looking down at your hand, then up at you....finally to the side, where Siobhan waits, ready to slice the tongue from her mouth.Her eyes go wide as she stares into the black metal of your True Silver Sword, the opaline fires shimmering just under the surface, rising and fading like living opal might. You can see her making the connections, solving the puzzle, understanding what it is you have wrought. Her eyes widen as she moves even further, making connections no one but another artisan of magic would understand. Her pale eyes shoot back up to yours as Siobhan purrs in both your minds, asking you in a sweet soft telepathic voice if she may taste the illusionists blood.I would have made it clear to her how you would never release Kteine, how you would turn Schechei against her through Kteine's influence. By manipulating her fears and insecurities, I would reduce her to a paranoiac state, and then craft images and hallucinations within her mind that would lead her into believing you had made Kteine yours, and yet managed to allow Schechei and Kteine to mate, making Schechei yours by default. Then the final straw would be when she came to believe you and Kteine were mated, and that means you would have been her mate by proxy....it would drive her mad with rage as her ego collapsed in the face of your superiority and glory. You can feel the edges of terror and awe through her quickly delivered and richly imagined feast of madness, revenge, and gaslighting.
It would have taken months, perhaps years, but she would have masterminded it beautifully. No one would have suspected a thing, except perhaps Auena and Tzanzi. Auena would not have been immune to the illusionist's spells and charms, only resistant. Tzanzi, on the other hand would have been immune to the magical manipulations and spells....yet she could have been brought to Yashi's side, and might have even helped. The plan was well thought out, entirely workable.With a knowing smile you release her tongue, rising to your full height. Your armor takes itself apart as the Unseen Servant obeys your silent order, and you plant Siobhan between Yashi's legs, the flat of the wickedly barbed and curved blade nearly touching her soft pubis, the edges only finger-widths away from her spread thighs. How would you like your weapon given to you? Before the Cadre in grand presentation, or privately, in our own secret ceremony.She stares up at you, seeming utterly baffled by your seemingly blasé response to her revelation of betrayal.  What? You expect me to act on something you only might do? Feel free. I won't stop you from indulging your appetites. And think of some new plan. That one was entertaining, but a little long term for my taste. Please, Yashi, don't insult my intelligence; that's one plan of many, I suspect. I want Schechei and Kteine intact – emotionally as well as physically. Use another tactic. Write in?Siobhan is still giggling madly at how shocked, afraid, and confused the poor illusionist is.
>>1700629> Please, Yashi, don't insult my intelligence; that's one plan of many, I suspect.> I want Schechei and Kteine intact – emotionally as well as physically. Use another tactic.It's all in good fun. After all, we can't expect our cadre to go around being bored all the time!Yashi is the most fun to bully.
>>1700629> Feel free. I won't stop you from indulging your appetites.> Please, Yashi, don't insult my intelligence; that's one plan of many, I suspect.> And think of some new plan. That one was entertaining, but a little long term for my taste.
>>1700629>[X] What? You expect me to act on something you only might do?>[X] And think of some new plan. That one was entertaining, but a little long term for my taste.>[X] I want Schechei and Kteine intact – emotionally as well as physically. Use another tactic.
>>1700629>[X] I want Schechei and Kteine intact – emotionally as well as physically. Use another tactic.>[X] Please, Yashi, don't insult my intelligence; that's one plan of many, I suspect.>What? Do you expect me to be concerned or surprised? Do you think I asked you to join my cadre without having at least a pretty good understanding of who you are? You revealed much to me when we first met, and I considered it accountable at worst, and a bonus at best.>That being said, if you think your confession deserves punishment... I'd be glad to oblige you.I don't know, is it too cruel or just cruel enough?
>>1700629> I want Schechei and Kteine intact – emotionally as well as physically. Use another tactic.>[+] Though if you pick one I can predict this easily again, I'll have to punish you for it. I'm sure you understandI was tempted to write in Akkio making a cat got your tongue joke but I dunno if gith have pet cats so I couldn't decide if it fit
>>1700640I dunno if Akko should so openly reveal the extent she understands Yashi, and risk also revealing whatever remains that she does not. However, it is definitely suitably cruel, far from too much!
>>1700641The evolutionary precursor to the gith were fairly catlike, if that helps. Akko is apparently familiar with displacer beasts....
>>1700641>[+] Though if you pick one I can predict this easily again, I'll have to punish you for it. I'm sure you understandI don't think we did predict it? We knew she'd do something with Falna, but I don't think we'd have guessed she'd be willing to employ such a long game and pretty much pull an Othello.
>>1700648We didn't get the details, for sure. But Akko certainly seemed to understand she was angling to use the twins to turn Falna on us, both with her earlier taking notice of Yashi interacting with them and calling that out specifically before Yashi spilled her plan. Close enough for me considering that's the major part of the plan, I feel like the specific tricks and spells she listed are pretty normal for someone like Yashi
>>1700646I don't know, when I say "pretty good understanding" I mean>Decently cunning and clever>Gets off on pitting people against each other>Has been alive a very long time so either this is a habit she's only recently felt confident in developing, or she's gotten very good at getting away with itI don't think we need to be Sherlock Holmes to figure that out, especially not when Akko confronted Yashi about provoking drama by encouraging a fight between her and some other Githyanki pretty much right after Akko and Yashi met.If anything, I'm surprised that Yashi is surprised and maybe actually a little offended. With that and how Tzanzi was talking about us earlier... do people think Akko is dumb? Like not dumb-dumb per se, but more whatever-the-term-is-for-deficiency-in-wisdom
>>1700652Well, our wisdom is about half our intelligence.
>>1700647Explains why they're so cute, clearly.>>1700652Yeah I suppose, but in that case we could turn it around and ask why Akko would make note of something so trivial to figure out to the point of almost bragging about it. More importantly though I just feel like with someone like Yashi, leaving her in the dark as much as possible regarding Akko's understanding of her games and politics is both the strongest move, and the one best for alleviating the eternal ennui of Gith - the more left unsaid and ambiguous, the more interesting and fun this game should be for her shouldn't it?
>>1700654I can kind of agree with you, but I feel like leaving Yashi in the dark has kind of gone out the window with>She stares up at you, seeming utterly baffled by your seemingly blasé response to her revelation of betrayal. and>Siobhan is still giggling madly at how shocked, afraid, and confused the poor illusionist is.which is what I'm responding to.Unless she's only pretending to be surprised, in which case Akko boasting would make Yashi think that Akko has been lured into a false sense of security when in reality that's exactly what Akko wanted Yashi to think.I don't know, I don't really see a problem with it but if there is one
>>1700652>If anything, I'm surprised that Yashi is surprised and maybe actually a little offended. With that and how Tzanzi was talking about us earlier... do people think Akko is dumb? Like not dumb-dumb per se, but more whatever-the-term-is-for-deficiency-in-wisdomIt's more a case of most githyanki Leaders - who have the power of life and death over their people - would not approve of a plan that not only usurped their own power, but would also take it as an affront to their leadership. Akko is doing neither of those things, nor demonstrating a damaged ego and retaliating with violence. Entirely the opposite of what Yashi has experienced and seen in her very long life.
>>1700660Well, these Leaders all sound very boring. No wonder there's such a problem with boredom!
>>1700647Hmm, well I'll leave it for now but shuffle it to the back of my mind for later opportunities
>>1700660I get that, but what I don't get is if Yashi thought that Akko actually didn't understand Yashi's interests, or if she believed that Akko expected Yashi to put her interests aside and respect the chain of command? Like is this the first time Yashi has been exposed, or is getting caught and punished almost as fun for her?Guess we'll have time to talk about it with her more
>>1700629Oh and one more thing>So... the weapon?Ideally I'd like to give it to her this thread, but I suppose having it be the start of the next one could work as well.
>>1700640>>1700660>>1700646Also if it really doesn't fit for Akko to say, I'm fine with it not being included, in case that wasn't clear.
[XX] I want Schechei and Kteine intact – emotionally as well as physically. Use another tactic.[X] Please, Yashi, don't insult my intelligence; that's one plan of many, I suspect.[x] And think of some new plan. That one was entertaining, but a little long term for my taste.[X] Write in? I am perfectly aware of your nature and habits; you made them clear to me yourself. I'm not going to punish you for being you, I'm going to punish you for failure if you don't manage it properly.A long, languid stretch is followed by a quick, simple spell; you cleanse yourself using the same basic cantrip that serves you in so many little, yet pleasant ways. You run your hand through Yashi's hair as the Unseen Servant finishes it's task, leaving you as bejeweled and decorous as Yashi, though taller and more tightly muscled and fleshed out. You also have ankle cuffs; perhaps you should make her some later. Your plan is very detailed, and quite workable, except for three very important details. She stares at you, her expression still awestruck.Placing your hand on Siobhan's hilt you push, driving her into the ground more deeply, with a promise that she'll get her chance to play with Yashi soon enough. The crooning melody that is her response is apparently shared with Yashi, who looks at the strange weapon nervously.First of all, this is not a timeless place. You will mature and grow, as will Kteine and Schechei. You are in for some very strange times in short order, and they will be no better off. You are only just past a childer in physical age, and they were as well. Imago have....urges and emotional issues, that will make a careful and detailed plan much less workable in the long run. Shorten your timetable. You lean over and pulls the delicate githyanki up by her armpits, onto her feet and over Siobhan to stand before you. You smile and run your hands along her small, firm breasts. Second, Falna is far less patient than you are. It is entirely possible she would have tried something long before your plans came to fruition. That would most likely aggravate you, I imagine.Her breaths quicken, but she struggles to minimize her reaction to your gentle play. I had planned to adjust her desires as time went on to prevent such a thing. She seems distressed by your amusement, and you can't really blame her.
Leaning in, you grip her breasts rather firmly and she twists, your rough treatment hard for her to deal with in her current state, only made worse as you brush your breasts against hers, nipples rubbing together, the delicate jewels in hers cool against your flesh. Really Yashi, I am almost offended by your attitude. her confusion is bright and strong in your mental picture of her and you slip your hands from her breasts to press closer, kissing her slowly, teasing and then playing with her tongue lovingly as she whines softly to you. You do not think I had no idea what you were planning at all? I imagined several plans, not to mention some that were in play already and others that you simply have not hat time to implement.Yashi breaks the kiss with a soft chirrup of dismay, her mouth in a soft moue of unhappy surprise.Third, and most important, I want Schechei and Kteine unharmed – emotionally, not just physically. her eyes wide and she looks up at you then gasps loudly as you slip your fingers between her legs, smiling at the discover of a jewel set in her soft clitoral hood. Frames her pretty little bud nicely too, designed to do so. I do not care how difficult that makes it for you, I want that to be taken into account. She nods rapidly, her eyes opening to meet yours momentarily. You slip your fingers free and taste her, closing your eyes in bliss.I am not going to punish you for being what you are – I am not that much of a hypocrite. You pull her close and into your arms, your hands rubbing the soft, firm globes of her derrière. Nowhere near as nice as Auena's, but pert and firm. She flushes, unused to that kind of massage apparently. However, your failure will offend me on principle, so see to it that you do not. If you want this to be done, do it well and you will receive the kind of show you hope for. And if you need incentive..... Siobhan giggles wickedly as you direct your phantom slave while you distract Yashi with a slow, warm kiss. ....I can always punish you for being caught out, of course.It takes her some moments to clear her mind enough to answer as you molest her softly, handling her warm breasts, her soft derrière, her body lean and smooth and so very warm along yours. ....You are not reacting the way I was expecting, Akko, she admits, her mental state still in turmoil. Most leaders would not indulge my desires so readily.
You lean in, brushing your cheek along hers, spurs rubbing as you cherish her, your hands spreading her soft derrière wide, making her shiver delightfully. If I was any other leader, you perhaps might have had less trouble and a great deal more to be bored with. She mentally acknowledges the comment. If it will make you feel better, I will give your punishment over to Siobhan.... You glance off to the side and see Yzia winging her way to your new lair within the Lair. She shivers in your arms, well aware that a True Silver Sword could do terrible, terrible things to her. You kiss her softly and slowly, your fingers slipping under her, spreading her, teasing her....and then you push her backwards a step, the Unseen Servant adjusting Siobhan's angle slightly, having oiled her hilt carefully and fully. Siobhan sighs in your mind as you muffle Yashi's high pitched chirp of shock and pain with a kiss even as you gently but firmly impale her cute bottom on Siobhan's hilt. You manage to snatch several images from memory in her silent and somewhat shocked mental burst of vitriol and guilty pleasure of her having had male githyanki perform this act on her.Fortunately – or unfortunately – for her, though it has been a while.You press her onto the hilt fully, and she clutches at you desperately, trapped between you and Siobhan. The Unseen Servant adjusts Siobhan as you lower Yashi to her knees, and then move into her, letting her cling to your legs. Running a hand through Yashi's delicate curls, you direct her head, and she responds immediately and desperately, eager to please you. Her clever, hot little tongue presses the studs into your heated slit, your softest flesh and you gasp aloud as Yzia transforms even as she lands, not using a spell but her will alone. While most of the harnesses and belting transform with her, the one pack she carries – your personal pack – does not. She sets it aside, placing one hand on her hip and cocking her head. The alabaster flesh of the stellar angels and her golden hair shines in the were-lights, her buxom body fully fleshed and well figured. Another form of aasimar of course. Glorious as always.Really, Siobhan, that's quite obscene. Poor thing is bleeding on you a touch. Pressing the sweet illusionists mouth to your sex firmly, you lower your eyes and smile at Yzia. Well, you could take Siobhan's place.... Just whom I needed to see....might I have the sword you're carrying for me? Yashi felt the need to be disciplined, is all....you're welcome to assist. Indulging myself, and Siobhan, at poor Yashi's expense – she needed to see what punishment was in store. You say that as if Siobhan minded a little blood....she's clean otherwise, you know. Write in?Siobhan wants to make the poor illusionist make much more noise!
>>1700692> Indulging myself, and Siobhan, at poor Yashi's expense – she needed to see what punishment was in store.> Yashi felt the need to be disciplined, is all....you're welcome to assist.Like I said earlier, this bullying is quite fun!
>>1700692> Just whom I needed to see....might I have the sword you're carrying for me?> Yashi felt the need to be disciplined, is all....you're welcome to assist.
>>1700692>[X] Yashi felt the need to be disciplined, is all....you're welcome to assist.>[X] Just whom I needed to see....might I have the sword you're carrying for me?"You still have one hole left unattended Yashi, since you didn't answer how you would like to be given your sword, perhaps we can kill two birds with one stone."Probably tasteless even by Githyanki standards, but if not it might give her a head start on bonding with her weapon.
>>1700692>[X] You say that as if Siobhan minded a little blood....she's clean otherwise, you know.
>>1700692> You say that as if Siobhan minded a little blood....she's clean otherwise, you know.> Yashi felt the need to be disciplined, is all....you're welcome to assist.I'm sure Yzia will be a lot more imaginative with our dear sword than a simple Unseen Servant. It'll be like a bonding exercise to see what sweet noises they can coax out of herAlso must say it's fun to have Siobhan's thoughts at the end of every post, really helps flesh her out
>>1700698Haha, that's one way to bond eh. Leave it up to her to get dommed by her own weapon.
>>1700706Yeah I'm just not sure if it's disrespectful somehow to our own craftsmanship if nothing else, so if it does get in I want it to be clear that even though we're currently punishing Yashi, we will nonetheless be taking no for an answer when it comes to that at least.
>>1700692>[X] Yashi felt the need to be disciplined, is all....you're welcome to assist.>[X] Just whom I needed to see....might I have the sword you're carrying for me?
>>1700692> Just whom I needed to see....might I have the sword you're carrying for me?> Yashi felt the need to be disciplined, is all....you're welcome to assist.>"You could take Siobhan's place... but then I would let her fill me to make up for it. On the other hand, you could take *this* place instead, mmmh?" *shake your butt enticingly a bit*So, what do you guys say about using Yashi's new weapon as strap-on between us and her?
>>1700709Agreed on that, Siobhan has it covered in that case anyway. She needs her fun. But sharing is caring!
>>1700719Intrigued. But how do you propose to go about this logistically without entirely too much cut flesh for even githyanki sex?
>>1700698>>1700706>>1700709>>1700719Of course we have to ask the weapon we crafted if it wants to fuck us and Yashi, if the weapon is as sapient as regular Silver Swords.We're not going to impose that on a sapient magic item if it doesn't want to, it's how you get betrayed by your own weapon.
>>1700723Didn't we craft a staff for Yashi?If it's a sword, we could do it with the scabbar on, I suppose.
>>1700727That's true yeah. Actually I forget how smart the weapon is, I just remember that, unfortunately, Akko rolled pretty badly on her crafting check when creating it, so it could be dumber than a normal silver sword.
How smart are normal silver swords compared to Siobhan anyway?
>>1700743Less smart than she is now, but as smart as she was before the upgrade.>>1700730It's sad we rolled badly, but at least we can still upgrade it later. And it makes a kind of sense that we didn't really know how to craft that kind of weapon on a first try.
>>1700746Yeah we probably can, but if Yashi wants it she'll have to front at least most of the bill.
[XX] Yashi felt the need to be disciplined, is all....you're welcome to assist.[X] Just whom I needed to see....might I have the sword you're carrying for me?[x] You say that as if Siobhan minded a little blood....she's clean otherwise, you know.Your first attempt at a telepathic response to your companion and lover is preemptively cut short by discovering that the facets of the ruby are indeed very sharp and a more than merely 'a little' intense against the supremely sensitive flesh of your clitoris. You swallow the shocked chirp that starts in your throat, and tighten your grip in Yashi's hair, reassuring her that yes, she does indeed have most of your attention.Yzia and Siobhan both mentally snicker and giggle at your discomfiture. Disrespectful, but understandable. You probably would have laughed too.Yashi is being punished for her abortive attempt at influencing Falna into an attempted murder. Yashi sifts and then makes a soft, muffled chirp into your sex as she causes herself some discomfort from Siobhan's positioning. Siobhan giggles wickedly as Yzia kneels, her hand caressing the illusionist's nicely presented derrière, studying the deeply embedded sword hilt. She's quite clean, save for – as you mentioned – a touch of blood.Oh yes, I had not considered that none of us have eaten yet. She takes Siobhan by the blade, and holds her steady, making Yashi shiver against you. You twine your fingers in her hair and looks down at her, those tear filled yellow eyes gazing back in lust, fear, and perhaps – just perhaps – a touch of devotion.Worrisome, that last, especially if she's able to fake it during such loving abuse.You are welcome to join us....if you wouldn't mind bringing me the blade I entrusted to you? Yzia smiles and acquiescences....but not before she leans down further and slides her improbably long tongue along Siobhan's blade, across the decorous quillion....and then where her hilt is buried in Yashi's backside, coming away with a trace of rich royal blue along her lips as she rises. The sight makes you clench and bear down, even as Yashi responds to the oral assault by redoubling hers. Dead gods, Yzia....Yashi shudders and suckles firmly, her tongue sliding deep and quick, her teeth framing your sex. Yzia comes back, cradling the bound and protected blade in a case of brass, padded within and sealed with lead. She watches you for a moment, but you finally have to close your eyes, Yashi's efforts driving you closer to the edge faster than you anticipated, even with the rough gem abrading your soft flesh as it is.Maybe even because of that; you didn't think you were a masochist, but it is such an interesting sensation!
>>1700752Or it could be her reward if she does more great things for us.
Yzia sets the case aside and murmurs softly to Siobhan, her words lost in the rushing thunder of your blood and the increasingly desperate efforts of the illusionist to please you. Yashi pulls back against your grip, a soft caterwaul erupting from her; you open your eyes to see Siobhan replaced by Yzia, who is not limiting her attention to the delicate wounded entry but also the more typical location for such pleasure. On her knees between Yashi's now spread legs, supporting her belly with one hand, and licking, deep and slow and sure, Yzia looks at you over the delicate githyanki, whom you hiss at threateningly before she plunges her tongue inside you and covers your sex entirely with her mouth.It doesn't take long at all for you to nearly grey out from the intense, powerful climax she gives you, and you bite your lip, drawing your own blood as you make the gish continue, knowing her tongue is starting to cramp and her pleasure is too mixed with pain to achieve her own climax. When you finally release her she collapses between you and Yzia, who chuckles, looking down at the trembling, exhausted, and thoroughly abused illusionist. You go to your knees and Yzia quickly moves to you, allowing you to lean on her and nuzzle her thigh. I need more practice at such things. I would call that barely adequate as punishment.Yashi opens her eyes, still trembling, exhausted and aching. All this weight and so much restriction on movement....any body pleasure here is punishment enough, she claims, though she is not entirely unhappy about her situation, painful as it was at first. you may consider the incentive worthwhile, my Leader.Leaning against Yzia's leg as the aasimar-formed dragon strokes your long hair, you smile up at her fondly. She smiles down at you knowingly. You in turn stroke Yashi's hair, and she shudders before crawling to lay her head upon your lap. Well, at the very least, I would say you have paid me a small amount of what you will owe me for this.... The Unseen Servant slowly levitates the case containing the weapon you have made for her to your hand and you set it next to her. She turns her head, her breasts heaving prettily as she struggles with the difficulties of weight, atmosphere, and a demanding lover.
You open the case, the lead seals tearing under your powerful grip as you force the issue. Yashi sits up slowly as the first inquisitive notes of an alien melody are softly sung to her. The blade is a slender hand-and-a-half weapon, the hilt long and slender, textured deep crystal of opaque aquamarine wrapped in silk cord with a delicate up-swept and close-in pair of quillons. The blade is dual edged, but one side is simple, a delicate and slim looking weapon with a back of varying serrated curves, reminiscent of oceanic waves in a storm. A small but very wicked hook ends the curved edges, something that will tear at the flesh it penetrates. The blade is the emerald-like void-glass, save the color is inconsistent, though entirely translucent. A mixture of green and transparent, as though you infused emeralds into glass. Tiny explosions of silver and beads of mithril shine within the glass.A reversal of the silver swords, unlike yet exactly like them. Siobhan sings to the new blade, who sings hesitantly for her mistress. Yashi reaches for the blade, and you move the case closer. She runs her fingers along the blade and the hesitation in the mental song vanishes, replaced by a sweet haunting melody of love, desire, power, and promise. Siobhan joins in and Yzia shivers, watching with delight as you prove yourself a Master Smith in the most forbidden way possible.“Fehr Vaed,” murmurs the trembling, exhaust, and exhilarated illusionist, naming the Silver Sword you crafted for her.“Use her well, my darling,” you murmur hotly, the blade's love song echoing in the back of your mind.>To Be Continued....
>>1700772Sword waifus are a Cute! thanks for running XS.
Thank you for reading and playing. We will continue this evening at midnight.
>>1700766Yzia always knows what to do!>>1700772What a cute sword.Thanks for writing! A very satisfying round of Raiding today.
Auena's turn is coming soon, and she'll definitely get double teamed by Akko and Yzia - and unlike Yashi, she has the stamina for extended play in gravity.
>>1700781I'm very much looking forward to it! That curvy butt has teased us for too long.Can Yashi's new blade sing to any other silver swords?
Thanks for running XSI do hope other githyanki won't get suspicious of this unique blade though
>>1700783Yes, but it has no connection to them otherwise. All Silver Swords can communicate empathically, which comes across to the githyanki as a kind of melody that conveys emotions. True Silver Swords can speak and communicate telapathically as well as retaining their empathic abilities.
>>1700784Magic swords aren't terribly unusual - the look and the lack of a connection to other Silver Swords won't give away anything; Siobhan is the only silver sword that the Fehr Vaed can commune/link with.The implications should be terrifying.
>>1700781Oh my.Auena's great, too.Thanks for running!
>>1700774Thanks for running, it's nice to have Tzanzi worry for Akko instead of just sexily intimidate her, and Yashi was a lot of fun.Also this is pretty much entirely tangential but are you familiar with d20pfsrd? They're having a big sale on their stuff but I don't know if they're good, bad, or it's mostly subjective.
>>1700789Siobhan had a baby! That is so scary XS!
>>1700786Alright, that's good then. You won't be able to make me stop considering it Siobhan's cute imouto now.
>>1700789>>1700796>>1700793Technically, Fehr Vaed is our daughter.
>>1700792I am, and I may look into it. Thank you for letting me know.>>1700793>>1700796Only in one of my quests would the players dote on the swords as much as the characters.
>>1700806Well yeah, in Ryukusa they're more cool onee-chans (or ravenous bloodlusting beasts) after all, on the occasions they appear.
>>1700809Ryukusa is more instinctual, so she accepts them as they are, while not really going into their mystical natures. They're just onee-chans because that's how they act to her.
