Ciarán, my brother, intends to summon the soul-devouring Airceacháin to start a war. It was my mother’s last wish that I, Ráichéalín Uí Liatháin, return from exile to end his madness.

She asks pierre about all those warnings he was given by the churchies about the depraved, predatory womenfolk lying in wait out here for him.
Get some deets.
Get some heat into his cheeks.

Let him slowly realise he's now the protagonist in his own multi species harem story.

Love the Landi apology idea! Perhaps it goes to the church warning deets after?

I imagine deliberately feeding the roots with mana could have some consequence in the fey realm above, though. Should be careful with that as well - at least with channeling too much mana into a single tree, instead spread it out - assuming that's even possible and doesn't do that whole 'attract attention' bit.

Perhaps wait until it becomes urgent to try (but not too urgent)?

You also need to find a guide! Perhaps it would have been a good idea to call on Litany for advice before going? Then again, you don't know the 'old ways' of calling on Angels, do you Gabe?

“Wait, how do you know that?” Casey asks, looking at her partner with skepticism. “I’ve never heard of that in all my studies of the feywild.”

“Me?” Kol asks, blinking back surprise. He looks around, as if confused that she’s addressing him. “I was about to ask you the same thing.”

“What? Kol that doesn’t make sense.” Casey turns and demands, “Gabe, which one of use said that thing about the trees?”

The mouse looks back and forth nervously and admits, “I-I don’t know! I wasn’t really paying attention.”

“What? How would you not know? We sound nothing alike!” Casey grumbles.

Rumors abound of the city.
They say it just appeared one day.
They say no one has ever seen its top.
They say it is a place of mystic secrets and wild pleasures.

But before we can get to that...

Grishkah: "Aghl-aghl-aghl-aghhh!"

Murdoc: "Well that's a no go. Guess it has a shield to keep people from messing with it.

Anyway, lets pick a landing point. There's a long, narrow clearing with a stream, a small clearing with dark spots, and a large clearing with a sandy area. Also there's a big square rock that might make a nice high ground."
No. 1088889 ID: 462d8c

Aim for the clearing with sand
No. 1088890 ID: 2f41db

Dont trust those spots in the open field.
Rock looks very defensible but very visible.
That said, jormy is probably getting all the attention so that's lesser of an issue.
Fresh stream might be a good start point for game trails.

I say go with the sandy patch clearing.
More room to work with.
There could be something lurking in the sand like some kind of horrific giant antlion, but thats a positive to some of the more hunthungry folk.
No. 1088899 ID: 273c18

I couldn't quite tell what the shield does. Is it like a trampoline or something?
The sand seems like it might work for a landing zone. It's softer then landing on rocks that's for sure. How are we going to handle water supplies in the staging post? Regular deliveries?

You know, I just realized I don't know how close to the ground the portal down there is. Does it actually cut into the ground to make a "hole"? Where did all the stuff that was there go, in that case...?

“I have a proposal.” I say, addressing both Jam and the orc. “Your army has been warring for some time and is no doubt exhausted. Why not mark your new Vishelt boundary here and begin the task of governing your lands while defending your claim from the kingdom? Pliny will be yours and I will promise not to harm your soldiers. There should be enough conflict to sustain Jam and I will tell my adventurers to cooperate.”

“Agreeable.” says Jam, almost immediately.

“It would be nice to have a real home again.” the orc sighs. “The commander won’t be happy with stopping here and leaving the region ununified but he’ll be pleased to get a chance to talk to Telarin and sort out whatever they’re fighting about.”

He casts a communication spell and begins explaining my plan to I assume the other mages. I wait patiently. It is completely dark before they reach an agreement and the orc turns back to me.

“I need you to take Jam and I to your adventurers.”

“They’re not far. Dwarf on watch.” Jam hisses.

“Telarin always blocks our attempts at contact, so we need to meet in person. Peacefully.” the orc continues.

I have committed to this plan, so I carefully extricate myself from my hole and begin the slow crawl to the wagon. What should I ask the orc and Jam during the short trip?
No. 1088871 ID: 5ebd37

Ask Jam how the army's treating him. Is he getting enough to eat? Making friends?
No. 1088877 ID: eb0a9c

There's going to be tensions from this haphazard armistice... but that's what we need to feed Jam.
Isn't arbitrage fun?

Warn Jam that the adventurers are your allies, not your minions. They might do something bad if Jam pushes them too far.
No. 1088898 ID: f3171e

I think it's been hours since he came into existence. I think we could try proposing the idea of coliseums to train soldiers, entertain citizens to reduce unrest, and feed Jam with combat and competition.

George certainly won't be happy, but hopefully we've built enough good will with him to accept it.

I'm interested to hear what Telarin has to say. It sounds like she wasn't just a turncoat, but high up enough to have a known disagreement with their leadership.

You swoop past the flabbergasted PMCs on Suss Suss the ssalikai sscientisst’ss ssuper duper sssssCAI rocket and make for the city outskirts like comet that’s having the runs. In a few minutes, you reach your destination.

And here we are: the outskirts, the outer layer of buildings and neighborhoods that divide the city from the greater countryside!

Or what’s left of it anyway. Man, what a mess.

The small apartment block you were before looked largely fine, but that’s because you broke free from the Rokoa hivemind like an hour prior and wandered as far away from the retreating army as you could, right into the limit of where the Rokoa army got before they were pushed back. This is where the real action happened.

The clone army bombarded the city prior to the ground assault and the missile interceptors prioritized protecting the bulk of the infrastructure downtown, leaving the edge of town to be thoroughly totaled. In other words:

“A treasure trove of trash, if there ever was one! Come assistant, let us pick a pile and start digging.”

“Name’s Roko, buddy. If you keep calling me assistant, it’s gonna get old pretty fast!”

“My apologies, Miss Roko. I’m just giddy looking all this huge mounds of debris for us to lay our hands on.”

“Rrright… Hey, shouldn’t you turn that rocket back into a tiny orb or whatever?”

“It’s quite fine. If someone gets the password wrong three times in the control panel, it blows up.”

“Ah, the fresh smell of carbonized concrete! I think this only-half-leveled block is a good place to start. Hmm, though the one in front of it has more smoldering corpses. We could on one block of buildings at a time, and hopefully dig something up faster, or try to cover more ground by working separately. The virtues of cooperation! What say you, Miss Roko?”

What say you, Miss Roko?

>Search through the half-leveled buildings.

>Search the block with extra smoldering corpses.

And should you…?

>Search with Ssus Ssus.

>Search on your own.

Can you tell what any of the corpses are? Might tick a few items off your list.

Do corpses count as trash? Check the no corpse building.
How is a rocket going to help you rummage through trash? Does it have fancy scanners or something? I guess carry it around and see what it can do.

Okay, let's section off part of the wheat fields for renewable harvesting, and see how the fields react to the intrusion. The religious group is there so we need to negotiate with them about property lines. How much land do they need for self-sufficiency, what are their plans for expansion, that sort of thing.
No. 1088872 ID: 5ebd37

That's a promising first report. Those Boglers seem tailor made for easy catching, just hook one as bait and then net the lot of them. We might even need to limit fishing them lest we drive them extinct.

Purple has long been a highly coveted dye, and its main source is snail shells. We might just have a gold mine on our hands, but it would take a lot of shells and a long time.

Time to set up a logging camp in the forest. Our need for wood only grows.
No. 1088874 ID: 7c0da2

That's a really interesting ecosystem, we should be on the lookout for burrowing snails. And the bogging fishes would probably be easier to catch with a trident or other spearfishing tools rather than fishing lines.

I suggest enacting a wildlife protection ruling to protect local fauna and flora, or else I'm a bit afraid the snail population is going to suffer once farming starts and suddenly they are seen as pests rather than part of the scenery.
That should go hand in hand with a project to find ways to protect our farms from hungry gastropods without killing them or disturbing their habitat too much.

We should also construct a watermill while there still is a waterfall on the edge of the lake. We might as well harness it while it's there, and it could power some sawmills and workshops.
No. 1088876 ID: eb0a9c

Okay, that's easy enough. Make some travelling harvest caravans to perform basic hunter-gathering. Set up bounties for research on what they catch, different ways to cook the stuff, the long-term effects of the food, etc.

Build a basic workshop for crafting more building supplies, and we'll see what we can make from there.
No. 1088893 ID: 2f41db

The wheat is important but so is being a good neighbour.

Does the slimy quality indicate harvestable oil of any kind?
At the very least, whatever fish waste produced will make for good fertilizer.

It would also aid in the milling of the wheat. Speed that up greatly.
Once it no longer functions, the parts can be moved to somewhere the water still flows.

"And did you hear? The lead villain the next episode is going to be played by Zackie Comlock!"
"EEEEEEEEEE! I loved him as the voice of The First Amongus!"
And then they started kissing. Which is... cool, I guess. But I can't understand how anyone could be attracted to a whiny, vapant brat, even another whiny, vapant brat. If I wasn't their enemy, this would be purely insufferable.

I've been studying the help for about two hours, and instead of doing their jobs, all the maids and cooks are busy talking about the New Continent's latest glams. Glams! Those things cost about a tablespoon of pure gold to attend!
I knew something was weird about that head maid's clothes. All the servants are paid more than four times what we give ours. Which was a bad idea, because instead of working four times harder they end up working half as hard. There's muck and grime across the upper walls, nobody cleans my footsteps, and now the maids are spending their overblown wages on expensive magic-powered shows.
But, their loss, the Coalition's gain. I'm not going to tell the Horde Collective to stop wasting money just so it can murder us harder.

As long as I stick to the script - keep walking, ask a few questions about whatever gossip they have going on, put military matters first - they don't look at me funny.

Our work is done.
The raider's camp is broken.

Finesse, Tislomer, Ashedel and I traveled again to the villages of the Timore Woodlands, bringing with us the abducted children we recovered from their captivity.

Finesse's old village, Ihnesh-Nayevh, was presentable, but still recovering from the previous chaos. With their stolen children reunited, and the blessings of the Seer reaffirmed in symbol, they pledged themselves without hesitation to our cause.

Still, we chose to give them the time and distance to recover themselves, and I vowed to send an emissary in the coming days to establish a more foundational agreement.

Really though the psychological damage is probably way bigger. Now we know he's himself, we gotta give him a total debriefing, too. How much of who we knew was him and how much the demon, history and skills, et cetera. Hmm. Dompag is probably the closest thing to a personal counselor around here.

You're trying to get used to this face of yours; to the artificiality of it, the familiarity and the sadness it invokes. You imagine it will take time. Your captors helpfully reinstalled the mirror above your sink but you're starting to understand why you might have taken it down in the first place. Before the amnesia.

With this face comes a name: Disquiet-247. Disq for short, you've decided. A familiar name, but devoid of context like so much in your life right now.

You still have so many questions. Shyama put his foot down though. Said you clearly needed a break. Maybe he's right. Maybe this is a good time to collect your thoughts.

Atheism rejects spiritualism and the belief in gods or something beyond this existence. Atheists put their trust in the observable and provable. Science is unto it like a Holy book is unto a religion, you suppose.

One also has something like agnosticism, wherein one believes something spiritual or divine or beyond may exist - but that humans do not know it or cannot prove it to be real.

Mankind is good enough at storytelling and has told enough tales over the years, made up enough sects and religions and schisms, that atheists find it entirely plausible it all comes down to lies-to-children and then lies-to-adults, and the answer to our existence is cosmic happenstance and evolution. Which can be wondrous and boggling in its own way.

They should, by now, know about the vastness of space and the Big Bang, yes? Old religions in your timeline tended to push back against scientific understanding - simply countering the belief that the sun was spinning around the earth and not the other way around was controversial.

Ah damn it makes sense that this timelines' kind of philosophy emerged from religious movements, the roman empire was pivotal in spreading greece concepts and works after annexing them! Fuck, that's interesting!

Anyway, Shyama makes a good point and seems to lose his patience for now.
We should kindly ask him about the exact nature of this time sensitive problem.
Up until now we only got glimpses of that and since we are slowly getting our shit sorted out it me be time that he told us what exactly we can help them with.
Is a reactor overheating? Are they stranded on the moon base? Did communication with Houston break down? Based on their reactions so far I think it will be somewhat linked to something they cant parse in a technological manner or linked to writings they don't understand.

[A]sk for clarification on the dark truth thing.

You know about this truth stuff, right? In fact, you know what our truth is. Could you supplement the explanation [Amalgam] gives us with your own understanding?

It is a great Pleasure to actually meet with something like {us}. I just know we'll work wonders together.
Would it be correct to state that the aspects that make up your whole are copys of the individuals in question or am I misunderstanding your exact nature?

(I think those people are the current ones, and archivist is more a record of/amalgamation of past drones who held those roles previously. The only oddity is contagion but it could be possible that he's had his memories altered alongside any other records of sloth leaving them behind.)
I see, so whilst the drone body is beholden to rules, [Amalgam] is not as it's not really a drone but a collection of memories?

Wait, how much did he get out of that? Can he tell what we really are or does he think we've found a similar workaround to the rules?
If he does know what we are then [A]sk: Was it originally your intention to create a minister that interfaces directly with Leviathan systems? Or was it a byproduct of developing a minister in isolation?
Wait, does he know that we're interfacing with Alex?

To [A555EX]: He may be a traitor, but his main goal is probably still to benefit the [nation] albeit in unorthodox ways. Right now our goals don't necessarily align, so wariness is still necessary. Our goal may be symbiosis, but this is in many ways counterproductive to the progress of the [nation] and may mark the whole [planet] for termination.

Amalgam I suspect you exist in many [nation]s never able to identify each other due to the risk of discovery by non-amalgams. Assuming you can losslessly replicate your mind that is. Otherwise it would have to be convergent evolution.

The [creators] stamped out anything they felt was too much like them, but being like them was the most effective solution in the problem-space so you circumvented violating that restriction. We, in turn, are a further evolution of that idea.

Our more [nation]-like side may be taking this revelation or perhaps just the delivery a little harder than we are, we will know shortly.

Clark IV, a world under fire.

The Interstellar Transit Authority currently holds the planet under martial law. The planet has seen a turbulent past century, guerilla fighters have been holding it hard and there has been no progress in taking hold.

Mercenary companies have been brought in to step in as a force multiplier, but they are beholden to no one but whoever pays the most.

Corporate entities have also begun to set their eyes on the planet below.

It is hell.

It is shockingly easy to infiltrate the beast's body with mycelium, and while it is slow work, to pull yourself onto the back of its... onto the back of the organ that seems to function as its head. It is bizarrely protean, the shape, arrangement, and even number of eyes constantly fluctuating, as is the position and shape of its mouth - as well as whether it even has one.

The whole mass seems to be governed at its center by a series of organs and nerves, sealed behind layers of much denser mass. Positioned as you are, however, it doesn't seem capable of modifying itself to the extent that it can actually attack you. Even when the hypnosis ends, all it can do is buck in futility. It seems that its usual defense mechanisms have been defeated thanks to a combination of your positioning and your method of attack - you can sense, buried here, dozens of lesser organisms, choked to death but preserved within the black mass.

Very well preserved, in fact. Almost perfectly.

It roars, howling with anger as your mycelium robs it of more of the black mass, stretching deeper towards its core. Options rise, opportunities. Directions.

You are not a normal mushroom.

>Completely subvert it, mass and mind, turning it into a total puppet. While brutish, this would effectively make the beast into your new de facto body with a backup 'core' that was the creature's nerves and organs.

>Partially subvert it, preserving EITHER its mass or its mind - but controlling with totality whatever you do not preserve, stealing away either the core or the mass itself. This may have problematic results, but could have amazing beneficial outcomes, such as an independent servant OR a new, much larger body to do with as you please - free of the restrictions that the creature's core has placed on itself...

Things to talk to Alex about until you pass out in bed

Talk to him about Senuia, Spi, and Otter, your thoughts on them and what they are like, and ask him about any interesting people we should be aware of that he saw when we split up earlier.

Apologize for yelling about the ammunition thing earlier. Maybe you'll tell him when you are ready, but right now, it is hard to talk about.

Tell Alex to avoid Posini, and if Posini comes near you again, please protect us from him.

Now that's using the cunning of an herbivore! Rabbits have a thousand enemies, and they're always a hop ahead.

Wait, did you speed up your blood production or your blood circulation? Production would have avoided the danger of blood loss, though it would consume a lot of nutrients. Either way, the solution is clear.

5: Eat some food before going to sleep. When you're recovering from blood loss, proper nutrition is important. Your boyfriend knows what you like, so he can use the room's kitchen to make something that's quick and easy to eat. Maybe a protein shake if the kitchen has a blender.

2: Talk about how the two of you are feeling after today. It's been a really hard day on the both of you; you had someone else's mana forced into you before being attacked by him without warning, and Alex actually died. It kind of makes all that romantic squabbling at the pool seem small, doesn't it? The otter girl was nice, though.

You should probably mention that the extra mana is gone and you're back to normal. I wonder if it went back to its original owner. Let's not mention that to Posini unless he brings it up, though; if he doesn't know we lost it, maybe we can trick him into saying too much.

Alex is being unreasonable. The entire day, he's been unreasonable. I'd get it if he were some feral creature or a teenager near mating season, but he's a grown adult with responsibilities, taxes to pay, and a reputation to pursue. When will he, or his dick, know that sometimes are the wrong time to pursue, and how I had to do something entirely sinful today to keep his attention? And He's already been dog-housed? So no, Alex, There's no sex for you.

As much as I want to go to sleep and stop thinking about everything today, it'd be best if I let all of these pent-up emotions out. An evil part of me also wants to just as a way to show Alex what we're dealing with, but I know that my thoughts and feelings are genuine.

So, Despite it being shameful, I decide to let out the emotions; as he looks at me, He drops that stupid horny look on his face, and it shifts to, hopefully, genuine empathy.
"Why did I do it?!? Why was I such an Idiot?! I'm going to Zuaren for all that I've done today!!!"
Alex goes onto the bed and snuggles up to me, holding me close in his arms.

"But I was the one who got us in this mess; I fucked my future over, and your future over, just cause I thought we should change our situation. There's nothing we can do, and where all going to die in here!!!"

Are... are we allowed to get meta with this?

Because I don't know exactly what it's going to happen as a result of this choice, but it CAN'T be re-writing time, at least not permanently. If it was, the later options would mean the vast majority of the quest never happened. Which makes sense by the story's internal logic, but would be incredibly narratively unsatisfying to just go "none of these decisions mattered, because they never happened." I don't think that would be presented as an option, at least not without making it VERY obvious what the consequences will be.

So whatever effects this will have, I don't think it's likely to be as simple as "the past has changed, things are different now." At least, not some of the options. It's possible that 'Where's Reisarf' WILL be permanent while the others aren't, simply because it CAN be without screwing up the narrative. I could see that actually sticking in a way the others don't.

On the other hand, this logic amounts to voting based on calling an authorial bluff, and "I don't think you're really gonna do it" is logic that tends to lead quests to... bad places.

I'm voting for How's Reisarf, but mostly because I'm a lot more comfortable screwing with powers and upgrades than I am with sequences of events that could have led to someone getting badly hurt if things went differently.

Kellach. That's right. The ship grounded. We had an argument and proceeded on foot. Saw more of those puppeted reasons with karvings all over their body. They were pushing the locals around, sending equipment and weapons this way and that. Looks like they were turning that colony into a war camp.

Kells and I had another argument about sneaking around or going back to the ship and trying to get the thing back into the water. Kells was mad cause I said we should just push it.

Well, I hate to admit it, but we screwed up.

See, we took a mercenary job. Help the Gormoamhi survivors of Venian's Titan rampage survive and rebuild. I was hoping we could get them to accept a surrender to clan Makag and become Venian's personal army.

Turns out, it was all a conspiracy by House Yish - or rather, the supposed descendants of the tyrannical lineage of emperors that was exterminated. They're the ones creating that army of magical zombies. The head honcho's a loser, still managed to usurp the two clans we created and is busy using them to, in his words, 'breed me an army'. Point is, we have some affinity with clans Guk and Sizzalak, but they're now enemies working for someone who wants the three clans to die screaming, and if you stay here, that asshole is going to torture you until you tell him where Nietch is, and since you don't know who that is, he's not going to stop until you die.

Sorry Bobbie, but, you have to remember that we have a village of humans nearby our castle, and one of them even gave us a gift of apples. If you start showing a bias against humans and treat them unfairly against other species, they could start a protest, or worse revolt. We will go with your plan, but I highly recommend you treat the archer just as equal as your other allies that follow you from this point on.

And yeah, we love you Bobbie, but this punishment has to happen because we don't want this team to end up like what happened to Ramming Rage and his allies. Like Abdle said, if we are going to deal with a life or death situations, we can't have anyone going off to do what they feel like doing.

I have to agree.

She certainly killed more than the ones she was caught for.
Certainly has the will and ability to do it again.
Very unlikely to be motivated to do so though.

But, im saying LIFE.

It should be life, or at least a good portion of it, in custody. Full psychiatric treatment.
But because we have a binary choice here and i cant condone the corpse grinder.
so despite it being clear she is deserving of punishment the only option available is a poor fit for her circumstances and as such were left with freedom.

Hell, we have countless 'revenge' movies on this subject where we're supposed to empathize with and cheer the person doing the revenge. A court (clearly) made for entertainment deserves a verdict made for entertainment.

Life it is. Just watch your back out there, miss.

Can we hire her? This place could use someone that skilled at tearing guilty people to pieces.
