(Use Intricate Webweaver to do something...)>Renexizious. (Default.)
>>2050826>>Elizabeth. (Use Intricate Webweaver to do something...)It's time
>>2050831What did you have in mind anon?>Come up with something!>...Let me give you some ideas?
>>2050927>>...Let me give you some ideas?I'd like to turn ren from a white dragon to something much stronger, like a red or a blue. Others have mentioned wanting Poland to join the Common Wealth some how, but let's indulge in some ideas
>>2050947Well...>Cause a revolt somewhere... (Choose a specific location. For example, Poland, Texas, Ireland, Mongolia, etc...)>Take control of a country's media... (Specify a country. Taking control of a country's media essentially allows for propaganda to be sent stealthily for a time, and otherwise influence the nation.)>Corrupt politicians. (Specify a rival country... You'll essentially corrupt their politicians to work for you.)>Influence Ideology (Specify an ideology to change to be more... Friendly, towards you. For example, turning fascism more monarchistic in a certain area... Or turning democracy in America to be more elitist, and favoring you.)>...Have the DM come up with more complicated and specific plots?>...Come up with a plot Elizabeth would particularly like to do. (...Doing a plot which Elizabeth wants to do will likely boost her happiness, and might even in the future, allow for upgrades to Webweaver.>Write-inYou can come up with plenty of other ideas, but these are basically generic ones.
>>2051053>Cause a revolt somewhere... (Choose a specific location. For example, Poland, Texas, Ireland, Mongolia, etc...)It’ll coincide with the revolt in Hungary.
>>2051061Any specific location, or just Hungary?
>>2051117Poland. The catholic vassals of Germany will revolt together.
Alright.Choose what ideology you want to cause to revolt in Poland.>Polish Falanagist/Nationalist Party (Fascist Catholics, good opinion of Renexizious and Elizabeth.)>Polish Monarchist Party (Monarchist Catholics, good opinion of Renexizious and Elizabeth, but elect their ruler.)>Polish People's Catholic Party (Republican Catholics, moderate opinion of Renexizious, but good opinion of Elizabeth. If Poland is successful in rebellion, they'll become a Republic.)>Polish Communist Party (Communists. Poor opinion of Elizabeth and Renexizious, but drives revolutionary ideals up throughout the German Empire...)>Polish Jacobins (Hardcore Democrats. Poor opinions of Renexizious, but moderate opinion of Elizabeth. Will make Poland a militant democracy, and greatly drive up revolutionary ideals throughout the German Empire.)>...Write-in for ideas for looking for minor parties?
>>2051150>Polish Falangists. Ideally Poland will become independent and then we they can join the commonwealth, which should be easier if the Falangists are in control.
Polish Falangists it is.Elizabeth of course, calls in a few favors, and of course, visits some lonely villages in the dead of night...Roll me a 1d100 anons.
Rolled 14 (1d100)>>2051209Oy vey
Rolled 97, 73, 67 = 237 (3d100)14The Hungarians and Polish rebel at roughly a similar time, but the Germans do manage to organize rather fast to put down their rebellions...Ignore my roll.
The German counter forces are very heavy-handed. In a stunning show of force, the German army marches into Hungary with the full might of their army, while Germans living in Hungary take up arms in a militia. The Hungarians revolutionaries get pushed back steadily to Budapest, and surrounded and cut off by German Panzercorps, and from what you hear, apparently Germany has tested weapons on the revolutionaries, assisting in their quick defeat.After a day, the revolutionaries get pushed to Transylvania, abandoning Budapest.Poland is... Less successful in the German counter-assault, and from what you hear, a prominent field marshal of the German Reich known as Karl Reimann has led a devastating encirclement on the Polish revolutionaries with German Panzercorps and mechanized infantry, and using classic blitzkrieg tactics, have steadily crushed and grinded the Poles in a devastating lightning assault, along with a tactical maneuver involving paratroopers around the countryside, managing to capture much of the Polish military leaders...The odds of Poland and Hungary winning are very low... Almost impossible!Germany itself is literally marching throughout the capital of Hungary, and is rapidly approaching Poland's capital...Actions>...Try to find a way to support the Polish and Hungarians.>Get directly involved. (MAY ESCALATE TO WAR.)>Send volunteers... (Will implicate you... But won't lead to outright war.)>...Ignore it, this plan is a failure...>Write-in
>>2051273>...Try to find a way to support the Polish and Hungarians.Give them intelligence about German strategy and tactics. Send supplies in the form of rations or weapons and ammunition originating from the old Soviet Union like PPSh-41’s
Rolled 11, 36, 40 = 87 (3d100)You of course, use your spy networks and send supplies to the Hungarians and Germans...Second round.
The Germans come to a halt in Hungary and Poland, attempting to reconnect with their supply lines after outrunning them. and during this, both the Polish and Hungarians strike their supply lines, immobilizing the Germans...Your Polish and Hungarian contacts report that anti-tank equipment would be greatly appreciated...>Send spare anti-tank guns. (Cost: 20$ Million.)>...Send nothing. The Russians figured it out, why can't they?>Write-in
>>2051320>Send spare anti-tank guns. (Cost: 20$ Million.)
Rolled 51, 26, 38 + 20 = 135 (3d100 + 20)You of course, send spare anti-tank guns...Third round of rolling.
Rolled 91, 28, 76, 49 = 244 (4d100)The Germans get enough fuel to continue onwards, and manage to get the Hungarians wrapped up a prolonged conflict in Transylvania.The Poles are more successful however, and manage to inflict some damage upon the Germans, managing to damage and destroy some of their tanks and have been fighting furiously for Warsaw...Fourth Round...
The Germans eventually utterly crush the Hungarians, after bombarding them and devastating them with carpet bombing.Their total revolt lasted a mere 31 days.Meanwhile, the Polish peoples are doing very, very well, and are fighting furiously for Warsaw, but the Germans, furious and angered, have ordered a bombardment of Warsaw, after a Polish terrorist apparently attempted to assassinate the Kaiser.The world at the moment, is quite angry at Germany for bombing Warsaw...Actions>...Side on behalf of Germany. (Realpolitiks... Germans will certainly appreciate it, but the rest of the world, not so much.)>Condemn them for bombing Warsaw.>...Threaten intervention on behalf of the Polish...>(Webweaver)...Proclaim Germany to be "regressing" back to Nazism... (May start a large coalition against Germany, but greatly hurt fascist relations throughout the world... But however, for doing this, you might have a bigger boogieman then yourself to fearmonger about... And of course, to look like a hero when you put it down...)>Write-in
>>2051365>Condemn them for bombing Warsaw.
Rolled 2, 92 = 94 (2d100)You decide to stay quiet, and be slightly critical towards the Germans...Ignore the fifth round of rolling.
Rolled 64, 46 = 110 (2d100)The Germans get utterly routed in a surprise night assault by the Polish army, and many Germans are taken prisoner! The Polish gradually begin to push, as the Germans desperately reorganize for a counter-offensive on the rebels...The Poles have pushed the Germans quite a bit back, and are now on the offensive...
Rolled 84, 84 + 20 = 188 (2d100 + 20)The Germans eventually reorganize, and strike across the Polish plains in their Panzers, once again driving the Poles back...However, German reinforcements are arriving from Hungary...Two more rolls remain until the fighting becomes prolonged.
Rolled 73, 17 = 90 (2d100)The Poles and Germany are absolutely perfectly matched in the Danish villages and cities, and only by superior numbers and discipline do the Germans manage to push the Poles back to Warsaw slowly.Final Roll.
Rolled 47, 100, 38, 91 = 276 (4d100)Eventually however, the Germans bombardments and air support overwhelm Warsaw's defenders, who after a bloody siege, surrender to the Germans. A few escape via sewers, and continue the fighting in the countryside.Germany has won the revolts, but at a steep cost!Expect civil unrest, and more rebellions to follow after this, and occasional minor uprisings from the Poles and Hungarians too.Ignore rolls.
A few days go by.After a speech given by the Kaiser, who has declared "enemies on all sides", the German people have become fiercely alienated to outsiders and have become fiercely nationalistic overnight, with embassies from outside powers (including your own) being assaulted or burned down by angry mobs.Germany has become extremely isolationist and very nationalistic, and seems very focused on it's defenses and the threat of outsiders.The Kaiser has however, also been blamed by the German people for intervening in the German army, causing unnecessary failures, and demanding a more competent, and well-funded army, along with angry mobs outside of the Kaiser's palace demanding action taken against the Poles and Hungarians.The only other nation which seems like it may rebel is Switzerland, but overall, that' really it.The Germans have begun to implement fierce anti-spy policies, and have begun to crackdown on immigration and outsiders. In fact, travel to the country itself is banned... Along with leaving the country.Your spies are quite terrified, wanting to leave Germany before they're caught or worse.Actions>...Evacuate your spies. (You won't know a damned thing of what the Germans are doing, and getting spies back in is going to be hellish...)>...Keep them in there. (If they stay, there's a chance they can be caught, and linked back to you... But if they evade detection, they'll continue to supply you with intel.)>Write-in

As barbaric, uncivilized, and generally crude Africans can be, for some reason, people get ever so sensitive about them.""Eeeh. Well, in their eyes, they're people too.""...Well, honestly, I scarcely find it hard to call them people... Some crude mockery, maybe. But not exactly what I'd call a civilized human. Perhaps in time that'll change, but as of now, your average Frenchman likely smells better, and has more of a cultural history then them..."Actions.>Tell her to maybe cool it.

12+8=20You come up with a prototype anti-tank launcher... But the main problem with a bigger and more powerful warhead is two things.Most humans using it seem to be greatly slowed down by the weight, and this severely limits the ammo for a handheld anti-tank device.

If you so want, I can go to Africa for you. Not to mention, you've got Claw, and Pragius... Besides, what exactly are you missing in Africa? A few tribes?""...Well... You just don't really understand Elizabeth."She doesn't take that well at all, and crosses her arms."Yes, what don't I understand? Could you perhaps, enlighten me to what I'm missing?""...Why are you taking this so personally?""Because unlike you, I've changed color three times, and I've given up the ability to color match to my red dresses for simply being able to make plants grow better.""...Come on...""Ren, I swear to God if you say you'd rather be red or blue or some other color, I will be somewhat infuriated with you. I get the ability to make plants grow. Amazing, isn't it? Meanwhile, you can quite literally freeze people to death, or be a mobile freezer, and you aren't green. What goes good with green, Ren? White dresses? Red dresses? Blue dresses? None of them! Now, tell me, if I can handle being able to change dresses, handle trading in the ability to be comfortable for the ability to grow plants, I think you can handle not being as terrifying as the next dragon you see, and I can handle the heat for you, if you can't.""...Listen...""...Ren, I'm frankly tired of hearing people talk about shit they don't know, and you quite literally want to change colors on a whim. I'd rather you just stay the way you are, and not have to go through piles of bullshit about how you've turned colors to the local media or whatever...""...Liz, I think you're just angry because you're tired.""Maybe a little bit, but still... I want my white dragon husband, not some blue one or black one."Actions>...What about red?>...Are you really this angry about colors?

Sort of like you?""...I don't ruin my body...""...Well, I mean, I'd be concerned... Staying inside all day, scarcely seeing the kids or me, and I swear the bed was in intense pain when I left...""Oh fuck off. I'm not fat, and I'm not becoming anti-social.""Oh, don't worry... I'm not judging, I mean, it's just your body and your life. I shouldn't judge, right? I mean, I'm just your wife who'll be with you for the next... Thousand years, or so?""...Grrrh...""Oh I know, how absolutely dreadful. Having to put up with my cooking, me taking care of the kids, me trying to manage your realm while you go and play with your friends and while you mess around in the lab while I do all the serious work...""What's gotten you in this fucking mood?""...Mostly because you reminded me about how you attempted to make fun of me earlier, and of course, for being so smart and yet having such stupid words come out of your mouth.""...God, I'm going to bed.""Oh, what? Not going to ask me for sex or anything? Or are you just going to sneak out of the bed and back into your lab?""...God, come on...

But anyways, thanks for dinner, husband."She stands up, being of course, and kisses you over the head....You can't help but feel like she's a bit taller then usual.

Rolled 11 (1d20)Elizabeth enters the dark cave, barely fitting into it in her dragon form.She eventually however, shifts down to her half-dragon form, and carefully continues on in the dark cave...Eventually, she reaches the bottom of the mine, where she comes into a large cavern. Stalagmites everywhere, and a foot-high pool of water lies in the room, which is illuminated by a glowing gold portal in the center of the room...Welp... Here goes nothing.Elizabeth walks into the portal, and it all goes black...Ignore my roll.
...You feel a pounding sensation through your skull, and feel yourself in a soft bed and hear fire.You get up, grouchy, and feel strange... God, where are you?You look around, noticing yourself residing in a small hut. A small fireplace burns not too far away from you, and you seem to be in a fairly tiny cottage.You get on your feet, finding yourself wearing a crude tunic... God, of course. It scarcely fits you. And of course, is itchy... Speaking of itchy, you seem to be in human form.Hm.Actions>...Look around this strange stone cottage some more.>Leave, you'd rather not be in here when the occupants get back.
>>2067618>...Look around this strange stone cottage some more.
You look around the cottage a bit more.All there really seems to be is a small table with some chairs and plates, along with a bronze knife on it, a wooden chest, and some ornate vases, alongside plates, and what seems to be a small shrine, with some candles lit next to it.There's also a strong smell of fish from outside, and you can easily hear what seems to be waves. It seems you're by the coast, at least.Actions>Examine the shrine a bit?>Try to get into the chest?>Leave...>Take the bronze knife.>Write-in
>>2067673>Examine the shrine a bit?if this isn’t casual and just a a flyby thing then also do >Try to get into the chest?
You examine the shrine.On it, seems to be a small statue. It's shaped like a man in a... Toga, with a trident. He seems rather confident.Judging from this, it'd be safe to assume it's likely Poseidon or Neptune.After this, you attempt to get into the chest.Roll me a 1d20+2 anons for trying to get into it.+2 for ideas on how to break into it.

You of course, leave the building.As you open the door to the outside, you notice the shoreline and ocean in front of you, and secondly, the humidity. It's fairly warm, actually. Not like England at all.You do a quick observation, and notice a small wooden dock (if you can call it that) and what seems to be in the distance a small boat, bobbing in the water. You squint, and you think someone's in it, fishing at sea... This is only reinforced when you track the smell of fish to the side of the cottage, and it seems like there's a large pile of fish.However, as you look around, you notice a rather hilly countryside, along with the fact you've stepped out of a rather Mediterranean cottage. Greek, or Roman. Something along those lines.Surrounding the cottage itself, is a small dirt path leading away, and up a hill. It likely leads to civilization...Actions>Search around the cabin. Maybe you can find something useful.>...Follow the dirt path?>...Maybe try to get the man's attention?>Try to talk to your headmates?>Write-in

He steps out."...You're awake?"Actions>Oh, why yes, indeed I am. Pray tell how I got here?>Of course I am!

Don't eat me!"...It seems like these people are very, very unused to seeing other races. Hm."Relax, I'm not going to e-"The merchant cowers in absolute fear and is actually praying.

He lunges a bit lower, aiming for your feet, and stabs your chainmail slightly, without penetration...However, you backhand him right into Flames, who bashes the warriors in the back of the head... He jumps out of the way, only to fall from dizzyness onto his knees...He yells something in his strange language, and charges at you with wild abandon!Finish him?>Yes!>No! (Knock him out!)

(Note, Renexizious tends to bully and be more dominating in his werewolf forms, but isn't too effected in other forms.)

Liz walks into the harbor of Athens, confused by the sights and sounds of it all. She looks around for whatever may of use to her.Nothing much happens, but many men passing by either are obviously checking her out, attempt to flirt, or otherwise compliment her. One man even gives her 25 coins simply as a gift!Of course, by the end of the night, Liz finds a tavern to spend the night...During of which, she can't help but worry.She tosses and turns in her bed, unable to get sleep... She thinks of the kids. Oh god, how they must miss her... She didn't exactly think it'd take this long to get back... And what about Ren? He's likely missing her... Probably in one way or another. Then of course, not to mention missing England... God, it was so nice to be home and then she buggered off and all this happened...Actions>...You know what? The kids are fine, worry about your husband instead... What if he's injured or drowned? Oh gods... (Liz will tend to worry more about her husband...)>...Oh gods, did you call that baby-sitter?

You attempt to get some sleep, but you can't help but miss feeling Ren right up against you...Liz has a new form mutation avaliable to manifest.Specify a form for it apply in, besides dragon.

Snakelike.Choose upgrade>Elongated (Liz increases in length by another ten meters. This grants even more storage space, and also of course, makes other yuan-ti envious of her and increases her status there.

She additionally usually fires first and more accurately.)>Venom (Liz can bite an enemy to inflict a poison.

Elizabeth feels a a bit... Well, cramped. It feels like her body's resting on hard wood...In fact, when she wakes up, she's surprised by the fact it is! It seems like her recent mutation has caused her to shift to yuan-ti form... Which has left her tail sprawled out all over the floor, and making it somewhat hard to step around in.Not to mention the severe weight on your back. As the longer your tail grows, the more... Weight you have, it seems, particularly in the tail and lower regions. No doubt this will make constricting even easier. You suspect you could probably crush through bone if it gets much better...Elizabeth however, does notice that her body is now a large 40 meters long... It's in fact, long enough to wrap around the room, and coil up on the bed... God, you'll probably have to pick splinters out of your scales or something......Of course, your in a monstrous form. You should probably get out of this scandalous attire before someone notices this or wors-You hear a knock at the door."Everything alright in there? I heard a bang."Alright Liz.

>>2079618Claw...That is one of the most autistic ideas I've ever heard.This idea sounds worse then replacing firefighters tanks with oil to save water.This actually has convinced me that you can infact weaponize stupid.You are literally advocating to spread chaos. Because bringing the ruinous powers over to this dimension is absolutely a good idea isn't it?This totally isn't going to bring literal hell to these people inevitably right?God damnit claw.Just god damnit
>>2079646........Claw lifts his finger to argue, then kind of looks at the floor....Now that you say it like that, it kind of does sound stupid... I mean, I was just thinking a small cult about Khorne... Not really any other Chaos God. Besides, what the hell else am I supposed to do? Play video games, eat pizza and deliver it until I die, while Ren goes off on adventure and loots and women? I want my own adventure, damn it, and maybe this could be it.
>>2079659Spreading the """Good""" word of chaos isn't an adventure. That sounds like some ridiculous plan to end the world. Or at least ruin it. You know normally people that want adventure explore, or make some sort of goal and set out to achieve it.They don't spread the power of multi dimensional gods of suffering and pain. Think about it like thisWhen the word "Cult" and "Adventure" are in the same sentence without words like "Stop" or "Destroy" in it.Something's up
>>2079667And there's my point
>>2079659Gotta agree with the other guy, Claw. Don't be trying to spread the word of Chaos. It's not a nice thing to inflict upon other people, and no one likes being friends with a rampaging murderhobo. You know those guys in DnD games who do absolutely nothing but try to derail the story by murderhobo'ing their way through towns, slaughtering all the NPCs you worked so hard to lovingly build, and completely disregarding your story because they want the power-fantasy of being the almighty destroyer of all, instead of actually paying attention and playing and being a good member of the table? Right now you're advocating for the prick who tries to claim he's chaotic neutral while making baby back ribs from real actual human babies for the party's dinner that night. Don't advocate for murderhobos.

Khornate cults are cool...He thinks....I mean, how about we just kinda... Well, you know, compromise? No chaos stuff... But we just conquer a bunch of shit and make Ren mad? That'd be fun. Also, he fucking deserves it. I can make a way better fucking empire then he can, with his shitty waifus and... Fucking social life... I mean, it's a bit... You know, petty, but he basically threw me out and all I do now is deliver pizzas... That's my fucking life, delivering fucking pizzas. God, it's fucking terrible...Claw gets a bit upset just thinking about his life.>>2079686...I mean, like, yeah, Nurgle and Slaanesh are dicks, but I mean, Khorne's pretty cool. And Tzeentch is... Ok? I mean, I don't like the other ones. And I'm not some murderhobo! I mean, like... Well... Actually... I kind of am...He considers this for a bit....I mean, well... I'm better then a murderhobo, right? I mean, I'm not just someone who exists just to kill things and doesn't have free will. I can kill whoever I want... I mean, like, not that I would just do that, but I mean... God, this is hard....Am I really just a murderhobo? I mean... All I do is murder people when I leave some place. Or sometimes I just kind of act a bit random and chaotic...Claw grow increasingly worried if he's actually indeed a murderhobo, but is still sure that because he has free will, that he's therefor not a murderhobo.God... I mean, it's kind of what I was born to do. It's fun. It's what I do... I mean, it'd be kind of like if Ren stopped ruling. Or I stopped being a giant monster. It'd just be kind... Not me. I guess. I mean... It's not me to not kill things. Not because I hate them... But because they're there, and it's... What I do?Claw can't help but think over this, and starts to question his free will a bit.Feel free to argue a bit more anons, and you might want to reassure Claw that he has 100% free will.
>>2079697Claw if you didn't have free will I wouldn't be debating with the (Semi autistic) gelatinous giant wolf thing.And if you want to take over nations fine. Pillage or whatever is okay but DO NOT SPREAD THE WORD OF CHAOS. This might actually be a good experience for you, learn how to rule and deal with people properly.But yeah you're your own person. Doesn't mean we won't tell you when you're being autistic.
...I mean, fair enough... I guess. Also, I'm not autistic...Claw goes back to reality."I um... Hey uh, nevermind. It's kind of... Not important...""...I see, prince. So many glorious victories?""Yeah... Yeah... Let's just uh, go.""As you wish. The soldiers cannot wait for your speech."OH FUCK MY LIFE WHY.Actions>(Talk to Claw) Reassure Claw.

Besides, you're just expected to go out and get them pumped up a little. Just don't spread the word of Chaos while you're out there. That was a DO NOT, by the way.
Claw barely manages to avoid hyperventilating."I-I'll um... Y-yyeah. So um... Could I just uh, use a restroom?""...A what?""I um... You know.

Excellent speech, prince.""I guess you can say that..""Yes... Now, of course, your father wishes you to lead those troops to Damascus, and take it from the Romans, of course."Oh, great.Actions>Refuse! You remember Constantinople, and you aren't doing this all over again.>Agree! You can do this!>...Tell him you have a "special" way of taking over cities. (See if you can convince him to just let you go and probably monster-rampage there.)>Write-in
>>2080759>Agree! You can do this!
>>2080771Don't you remember Constantinople? I suck at that! Besides, I'm not going to waste my time failing at this...
>>2080788I know Constantinople was a fuck up, like really really big major fuck, but that shouldn’t stop you from trying again. You can’t definitely take on these guys with the troops at your disposal.
>>2080800...Still though, that speech sucked ass. I mean, why don't we just kind of march there, then I sneak off and rampage in city and we just so happen to march inside?
>>2080804That can work

For now, at least.Now, back to Elizabeth...Elizabeth of course, is tossing and turning once again in bed. She's absolutely exhausted, but has made plenty of money (about 700 coins) from taking care of various children for a few days...She's also sleeping in another tavern, after the previous owner tried to lynch her with a mob, claiming she was a shapeshifter.Of course, Liz misses Ren quite fondly, and wakes up in the morning hugging a pillow. Kind of like it was him. She even misses the kids quite a bit... Having at one point, called the daughter of an Equite as Elslif.She gets up and does her daily routine, but this time, finds some more...

>>2081219>Follow the original footprint path.
You follow the original footprint's path, and find a small camp.There seems to be some raiders here, in a variety of armor and weapons. Some even have chain-mail, no doubt successful at their occupation of raiding.There seems to be about twenty raiders total, eight of them in chain-mail armor, and ten of them in leather armor.Actions>Attack!

Hell, I've found more fortune here then in Dacia... Gods, I miss Dacia. The damned huns though... Gods, I hope they aren't after us.Huns... Hm....That farmhouse had plenty of food and loot, enough to keep us going for a while at least. Still though, I'm wishing for a proper fight rather then killing some farmers...Continue reading or do something else?>Continue reading.>Attack!

Rolled 1 + 1 (1d20 + 1)The arrow once again, flies too low, hitting a bush.
The raiders don't even notice the arrow in the slightest, and Elizabeth is enough of a bad shot, that even if she misses it's impossible for them to even notice, thanks to the horrible aim she has.Roll me a 1d20 to fire.+1 for more encouragement! (+1 for wishing you weren't so bad at shooting.)
