Misdirection sound good.

Something like, "hmmmm... you say you don't care what I think even though I never mentioned anything about what I thought of you, only thinking about totems... and yet... you were trying your best earlier to tell me that farming is a proud and noble profession... so why not just continue farming with that high respect you get for being a proud and noble farmer? Why worry about proving yourself as a knight?

Things probably won't go well for you in this battle if all your focus in life was helping people by farming but having very little experience with focusing on training and fighting as a knight. Why not just be happy with working in your proud profession as a noble farmer?"

You consider this quietly for a moment. Looking between Ganache and Dolly, you take in their differences.

When you shadowed Ganache, it was a lot of gentle speaking and soft conversation over drinks. Basically therapy. 
With Dolly, you get the feeling it's going to be different - she has an air of professionalism and a good nature so far, but the way she moves and looks at you and the patrons, it's like there's something... else.

"Okay," You say, leaning back. "So I've been through training and shadowing, and it's been fine, but I'm dying to hear some hot tips from the pros. Anything I should know before going out there?"

The two of your companions look at each other. Dolly speaks first.
"It's different when you're alone," she says, pushing her glass back to Ganache, who takes it behind the bar. "It can feel isolated sometimes. But we've got your back. Anything gets weird, go ask for an assist in the app. My best advice is to push yourself a little farther than you're comfortable."
"I mean, my comfort zone is pretty wide," you say, and she laughs quieter now. 
"You're going to find something to push you every day. Don't skimp on your boundaries, but do push them."

Huh. Surprisingly sage advice.

You nod at the practical answer.

"I was thinking of trying to be a drinking buddy first and a lover second, but I'd be down to clown if the client really wants it. Not sure if I want to be known as someone who's particularly into freaky stuff, though; I was hoping to have a more grounded reputation if that makes sense? Like, obviously, I can't be as subtle as Ganache, but I want to be someone a guy or gal can shoot the shit with? So I'm wondering, how do I find a balance between pushing my boundaries and minding my character? Or will they just naturally balance out?"

This creature is making a noise with increasing volume and displaying a threat while moving closer slowly. I interpret that as it's territorial, but doesn't see you as prey. Running away might work but you'd leave the shelter unattended. Similarly, hiding in the shelter will waste time and risks it being damaged by this creature, though that is unlikely.
Yell at it to stay back and fire a warning shot. That should make things clear to it.

Hm. More humanoid. Leaking and sparking. Obvious danger signs, but we already know we can presume little here. Still, this reeks of hostility.

Take a cue from the last encounter. Draw a line, then retreat, still facing the thing. If this is intelligent it might react to an attempt at communicating, however primitive. And if it crosses the line, ignoring it completely, you know it’s not concerned with such trappings.

This could be a threat display, as well, trying to chase you away, off its turf. You’ll know if it attempts to close the distance, or if it lingers in the periphery.

If it does close the distance, do not hesitate to try to cut a line in front of it for, stronger emphasis, or cut it itself if it ignores even that.

1. Find out what the situation is and see if we can solve it. Be sure to throw your weight around and tell them they can take it up with Bagrag if they have a problem.

Our goal is ostensibly to get treasure out of the ruins. Bagrag and the goblins probably don't really have much worth taking, but you can bet the necromancer probably has some unguents and reagents and maybe a grimoire or tome or whatnot full of dark secrets. Maybe even an accursed object of magical power!

Exalted 2.5e (4/4 Players); Using houserules written by James Leng.

== The First Scream ==
Six days ago, an incident occured that shook the very foundations of Malfeas and his inhabitants. This incident would be known by demonic historians as the First Scream-- if, indeed, any historians are left after the events following ensue. The effects of the first scream were felt strongly by demons, akuma and Green Sun Princes alike. Without fail, all of them suffered-- Akuma and Princes felt a flood of Torment, curling into balls or fighting with one another, unable to understand what madness had befallen the Demon City. Demons let out screams of pain, despair and agony, and the city fell to chaos. Were it not for the timely intervention of the other members of the Reclamation, the Demon City may well have eaten itself alive.

A green sheen grew upon its surface from the eighth hour onwards, and the screams subsided into a low sobbing and gibbering, the whispers heard by all residents and fevered madness grinding against their sould. Ligier and other souls of Malfeas were inconsolable, impossible to speak to-- either from rage or despair, none could tell. A Thing was held immediately after control was wrested over the surrounding area by less addled Yozi, and all Infernals who could attend were ordered to. Something was very, very wrong with Malfeas.

== And Their Fears ==
What came afterwards was no shock to those who understood the underlying fears of the Yozi, but caused a great clamor nonetheless. The Ebon Dragon, hat in hand, ordered everyone to stop work on the Second Reclamation, and in turn each Primordial after gave their own orders to do the same. Something much more urgent had occurred-- something that must remain secret at all costs, but which demanded that Malfeas play on the defensive for the next decade, at least-- until the issue could be directly resolved. All hands on deck.

Let's resolve a few things and get back on track. We'll go step by step, as suggested.

Firstly: After a bit more negotiation, Baldy's Read Motive (posted in Discord, thanks) breaks through her DVs. You seem to understand she wants to sign this agreement, desperately-- and that she had no plans to harm anyone in the first place. Her violence was incidental-- just her nature. It's clear that the violence she committed was not her objective, and that she was after something else. She has no clear killing intent towards you-- she just murders as naturally as she breathes. In fact, she's looking down condescendingly at this very moment.

Eventually she relents, at fistpoint, she actually signs the document, realizing she has no leverage. It's about now she starts asking for food in an obnoxious manner-- and gets her jaw ripped out by Doom for begging, making her silent and, well, not cooperative with further questioning. Probably still hungry, too. This does not endear her to the group, and she begins exploring options to kill herself silently. Baldy, still reading her motivations, understands she's plotting something.

Can I get a feel for the actual physical construction of the cage you are putting her in?

First thought for the deathknight containment cell is basically a multi-story variant of https://www.gunnerkrigg.com/?p=25 plus a series of stone-slab portcullises, operated by winches in water-filled tunnels underneath. Each section between a pair of slabs has a set of levers connected to little flags up above, through rod-logic inside the walls, so it's possible to send simple prearranged messages to the people controlling the doors but not social attacks. Convenient 'mounting points' for thaumaturgical wards and Private Plaza Of Downcast Eyes throughout the entire structure of course. Comfortable apartment at the center if reasonably possible, including storage space for barrels full of supplies and a basic food-prep area in case she ends up spending significant time there. Maybe glass peepholes in the slabs so it's always possible to look at the entire next-inmost section, confirm vacancy before opening? Ideally the dragon kings can install crystal-tech light sources, rig up basic alarm wards, and enclose it with that wide-area fixed version of the Celestial Air Path's capstone.

Oh, also: if Cleaving consents to medical care, and there's nothing more urgent going on, I'll use the Resplendent Satchel's Instrument of Regrowth to provide her with a new jaw - incidentally presenting a chance to delay those nefarious plans by the nigh-foolproof expedient of total anaesthesia, examine grafted weapons more closely, and harvest, pack for storage, and transfer to Maharani's Elsewhere pockets any bodily exotic ingredients the deathknight wouldn't miss - as much blood as the Wound-Mending Needles can safely replace in time, Mournful Eyes if those criteria seem likely to apply and the whole face could be regrown as a single piece, etc.

When informed of her counterpart's plans, 'Rani will attempt to assist by leveraging her burgeoning influence among the dragon kinds to recruit the necessary specialists: individuals with knowledge of the Art of Warding and Exorcism, with dots in the Solid Earth path, and a master (or near-master) or the Celestial Air path.

Per the houserules for recruiting help, the roll for that is Appearance 10 + (Contacts or Backing). 'Rani doesn't have a variant of either social background relevant to this community, but if she's successfully instilled an intimacy of Adoring Devotion in a chunk of the population, then that might be good for a bonus- and if she's successfully added them to her cult, then that background could be rolled instead.

Assuming that the creepers will be casting raising the earth's bones to facilitate the process, John clears the relevant area and provides markers as required for the spell to be cast; afterwards, it sets about creating wooden furnishings for the apartment- table, chairs, dresser and blankets, wooden dishes and mugs, as well as a rug and other decorations. Might be unwise to give a prisoner ample places to hide things, but with the airlock set up it's probably easy enough to avoid ever being in a position where that's a problem.

Naturally Suuzen and her cohort request privacy during the creation of the cell, to ensure sensitive information isn't linked- John should be able to stay relatively unseen during the process.

Spending four personal motes on Flesh Weaving Tendrils, then seven more to finish forty one hours of work for every hour invested. If I've been awarded at least two dots of stunt awards among my last two posts, then I don't need to spend any peripheral, so my anima banner is still at 0.

Humans gave us our forms. Once, we were like fog, dispersed, without identity or purpose. Then they came, and they made stories, they influenced one another, and they, more than anything else, believed. The fog we once were became something more. It shifted, it swirled, it separated, gained color and density. Things they wanted, things they wished for, things they desired and adored. Things they hated, things they worried about, things they despised and things they feared. In some ages, we were called gods. In others, we were called fey. In still others, angels, or aliens.

Beings of power, that's the point. Manifestations of everything they believe.

"It's a good time, Eva. You should be proud." A young man and his best friend progress down the halls of their college. He's in a wheelchair - granted, a wheelchair that looks like an iPod is somewhere in its ancestry - and she's walking beside him. His dark hair and dark eyes, frail-looking frame, and heavy clothes made to obscure his body rather than make a statement contrast with the wild red hair and bright green eyes of his friend, her bright fashion and total lack of shame in her athletic body. They've always been seen together, since middle school at least. A study of opposites, in everything from appearance to class, Timothy and Eavan. "You're getting antsy and it's affecting your performance."

"I know, I know. But I'm still missing something." the young woman mopes, raising her arms in an expression of frustration that makes the young man chuckle. She punches the air, bouncing on her heels. "I'll get it next time. It's gotta be my diet or something, I know I'll really be on point tomorrow!"

They part ways as they leave the school for home. Unseen, overhead, a blue fire flickers in the air, shifting as it watches them leave.

:pohicon:It's a little difficult to explain to someone who isn't a Manifestation. That is, an elemental being of power, a... sort of condensed lump of belief in something. There's many of us. I am Justice. My rival, or rather, the enemy overall, is Villainy. Remember, not evil, Villainy. The distinction is important. Evil is too powerful to bother with our affairs. But Villainy is petty. He started all of this. So very very long ago, he murdered one of our number. Killed them utterly, erasing them. No matter what side you're on, that's... That is taboo. It hurts reality. Myself and most of the other Manifestations at the time took issue with it, but Manifestations usually cannot interact directly.

"Which is why the murder was so foul. It was supposed to be impossible."

:pohicon:Exactly. Among other reasons that are difficult to explain. So we took champions to right the wrong, and we clashed with Villainy's side and his champions. We were not victorious. Beaten and broken, he found one among us and changed them. I don't even remember their name or which one was changed, no one does. When Villainy did these things - the murder, the conversion - it was like removing a thread from a tapestry and burning it, or dying it. They were just...

>Beaten and broken, he found one among us and changed them.
"I take it Evil wasn't as disturbed. So what is the concept of 'evil' in this universe? It's so... nebulous, at this point."

>Before you ask, he wasn't the man with the bad haircut and tiny stache. Some doctor, I think? One of the other Manifestations chose little man with the big voice as his champion. It was his type.
"Ah. I take it Narcissism chose the loudmouth. And chose again, recently. As for the doctors, they needed guinea pigs for the science they'd been forbidden to research for years; orchestrating the escalation of a world-spanning war just so they could finally get a lifetime supply of test subjects is exactly what I'd expect of the concept of 'villainy'."

"So what was the Manifestation background behind Operation Paperclip?
Can multiple Manifestations inhabit the same body or does that cause schism paradox failure?
Can you loosely describe the concept that was murdered, or is there an information block on all of humanity as a result of their nonexistence?
What happens when champions 'team up', per se? Does this make memes related to the concepts of the champions intertwined or merged together?
Am I insane and hallucinating all of this as my body bleeds out in a bush?"
