In my experience the first thing I should say shouldn't include the word slavers.

Ugh, some of those words don't exist in that dialect...um

"We are Almost-Humans. We are children made from Human and Other....uh...we rest our heads needing...for food lack thereof...help please. Who you are?"

"Veni, help...She is throwing off my internal balance, and I'm getting queasy..."

"Quiet Iagn. These are the Mo Sala. I think the only reason they haven't killed us is because of you. So stop blubbering. It's unbecoming of a representative of Rezo."

"May help we have please?"

"Your tongue is tied. Very odd."

it seems Iagn is part Mo Sala. they can recognize thier own.
he said

then she said
"Your ears. They are Mo Sala. But they are not Mo Sala. You come from Human? You come from Mo Sala?" which is why i propose his heredity

i guess give him a rough number or 'many' if you can't get a number. and that you live on a land across the ocean or 'big water' or something. you were here for a test to show that you are worthy of being a leader to your people and are on your way back home.
No. 210410 ID: c2c011

You can probably tell him. And mention that you're not exactly a friend of the local rulers.

Hmm, you know, it might be a good idea to bring along some of them as honored guests. And I do mean as guests, not slaves or anything. For a sort of diplomatic exchange. Could give you valuble allies here if you ever return with a claim on the throne.

"...And what help need you?"

"Rest. Place to hide. Humans here not friends. Enemies. We bring prisoners of them. And-"

"You capture live humans? Hah! I like this odd one."

"Now we are going home while the...chiefs fight each other. But we need rest, and a place to hide from the human soldiers."

"We could give for you the place of rest. But you must aid us while here."

"No I told you she's throwing off my equilibrium. I'm getting sick..."

"Eki. Eki. Eki. They bend so easy."

Anyway...it seems the Mo Sala want me to distract Hayaso patrols or something. I'm not sure about this. While I don't doubt my soldiers skill, I don't know if we can risk spending the time staying here. but at the same time, I can sense the aversion in the Mo Sala, the one right next to me is just waiting for an excuse to kill me...
No. 210565 ID: f798ff

so our options are decline and possibly die here, or accept and do stuff for a bit?

state that once your group have recovered enough to start moving again you must leave but before then you will do your best to assist them in their endeavor.

best relocate and distract plan would be not to move in the opposite direction but at an odd angle from it so that if they catch on that you are trying to mislead them they will still fail to figure where you have moved to.

Getting sick? You'd better inform the girl that if she doesn't stop messing with his ears soon he's gonna puke.
No. 210612 ID: 701a19

Tell them that she should probably stop doing that, since to his people that's a proposal of marriage. They'll make her stop.

If they want to move, then the simplest solution is for them to accompany you as far as the contested lands.

"I barely understand you but I understood that. We already know where to go. We have many places of hiding. But we need help protecting our weaker and unarmed people. Humans are passing through our lands and there good chance of detection. You are required to distract humans. Attack them in directions away from people of ours."

So we are a distraction.
No. 210624 ID: 3578a1

fair enough. got anything that could make you extra distracting?
No. 210642 ID: c2c011

You can probably make that work out. Just ask them to take the slaves along with them and keep them safe while you deal with patrols. And ask Iagn to stay with the slaves and make sure they don't do anything stupid or try to run away, and make sure the Mo Sala don't just slit their throats.

"Is there any specific plan? Something we can use?"

"There is Odd one. Kamagan shall stay behind to aid you. He already has a plan, all you need is decide who should follow through."


"It may be difficult with our prisoners about. Some are still restless and may try to escape while we are fighting. Perhaps if they went with you..."

"You misunderstand. Until arriving of you, Kamagan was meant to be abandoned. We are leaving and do not expect of anyone to follow. Kamagan was meant to fight until he goes to the Heavens. However with you, we are hoping he need not sacrifice himself."

[b]"So you are telling me we are all going to die?!"

"Not at all. With you present we believe Kamagan can give an illusion that an army hides in the forest. When they do, the humans will run. They always do."
No. 211202 ID: c2c011

Hmm, seems like a decent plan. You and your men can sort of strike as ghosts from the illusions and make the human forces hopefully piss themselves in fear and run away quick as hell.

But in case it doesn't work out you should probably look for some alternate way out.

And you could probably keep the slaves in the abandoned settlement under guard. That should hopefully keep them calm.

Oh, ask what Kamagan is to do after you have driven the enemy away. Will he rejoin his people immediatly or is it possible that he could help you on your way to the coast. Having an illusionist around sounds like something that could be useful.
No. 211216 ID: 46a397
File 127987535990.png - (47.28KB , 922x768 , 21.png )

I suppose. Considering It's that or face Hayaso on open ground.

"Is there plan to fight?"

"Yes. Humans are marching to west for fighting. They want to cut through our land to gain faster. The plan is to lure them down this road with mountain ranges next to. I make illusion copies of me and your best defender to fight. When they are lured under cliff, someone will drop rockslide. But we must wait until the leader human is on the other side. Then we kill leader, which will make other humans run. They will want to bring army to fight us. And they will bring army to fight us but will find only wind and dust when arrival. Who good for fighting?"

I could barely make that plan out but I think he is asking for my best warrior well...Shadeleaf is more ambush from afar. That would leave me, Iagn, and Kuta if he wakes up. But each of our fighting styles are different though.

"Will the humans magic bringing of?"

"I know not. This is small force. Sometime they bring mage. Sometime it is not important enough to bring one."
No. 211219 ID: 8dc279

is a good enough plan, but plans never survive contact with the enemy. let us have you with the guy and shadeleaf and iagn hiding nearby in case something goes wrong.
No. 211293 ID: c71597

Ask them if they can wake up Kuta. Have you, Kuta and the guy grab their attention while Iagn and Shadeleaf find a good spot for a possible ambush of a mage if they have one.

With Kuta there you can deal with any magic they have. Disguise him a bit though so that they won't recognise him.

And make a plan for getting out of there alive if everythning goes to shit. Kamagan is welcome to stay and fight to the death but you need to get back home alive and with your merchendise.
No. 211294 ID: 5c0e65

he can't have the axe with him. iagn can have it though. but having an anti-magic axe while having an illusion spell cast on you sounds like a bad idea.
No. 211297 ID: c71597

It could be nearby. As long as he's not holding it things should work out decently.
No. 211311 ID: 701a19

Sounds like a fine plan, but have the people who are attacking disguised, and have a squad of people 'rescue' the leader instead.
Then you have the option of keeping him, or keeping up a pretense of refugees while he's with you then repatriating him to his own side as a 'show of good faith' in order to secure passage.
Also, he likely has current troop movement information.

Well first I'd like to explore all my possibilities.


"I have a man who may prove useful should a mage arise. But he has sustained many injuries. Do you have an apothecary?"

"Minujia is skilled very well in the healing arts. Let her see him, and he should be well enough to fight. At least for the time now."

Well that means Kuta is now available...

"How exactly are we going to attack?"

"From here. My magic should cloak us well enough. And it allows us to move rapidly between the two ambush points, where I have the upper hand. But I do not know where the leader will be. He may be the sort that hides in the back (Meaning it will be a long battle), or from the front(My specialty).
No. 211403 ID: 2ab682

hrmm, so we have a roughly 50-50 chance of it being good for one of you and a unknown chance that kuta would be good. since the odds are 50-50 we should choose in a way that is fifty fifty. get a coin and flip it. heads you go, tails iagn goes.

These are dire times, and we have been seeing to her well-being and happiness. He has been protecting her and keeping her happy, and aiding him has proven to be in her best interests.
As far as her family, we cannot say for we do not know. However, an ill wind blows when a princess's family renounces her life. Be wary of their lands; troubled times approach.

We will do our best to help you survive, Kamagan, but we are too unsure of the outcome to make promises.

Right well you'd best make yourselves more convincing. In case you've also forgotten, forcing your will on a mortal too many times destroys their mind. If you have to do it with the human please wait until I am done with him.

"Yes, this jewel is Chang. Hold on to it, as luck shall be bought to you."


"Patrol shall arrive upon one day. I will need time to prepare illusion ritual. If you need preparations, make them tonight."

Well you heard him. Prepare. Not sure how though, there are many loose ends that need tying. Which ones are most important?
No. 212417 ID: 8e11a3

let's see... getting the slaves in the town and assigning guards and selecting troops for the mission is good. telling shadeleaf the plan is a good idea too. how about the progress you have made on the princess, is she your loyal slave willing to die at the drop of a hat for you?
No. 212482 ID: c71597

Well not exactly THAT much, though I do think I earned her trust.



"I will need you overlooking the village. We have respite here, but in exchange we need to divert a Hayaso force heading in this direction."

"Lord you know we do not have the resources to take on even a scouting force!"

"But the men hear guarantee me that we will have a magic that will give us an advantage. In any case your task is to find the leader as we lure him into open ground and you will kill him. That should send the forces running. But I need you to scout the cliffside overlooking the village because I need to to kill him as soon as possible."

"Very well lord..."

Well with that done I should look about. There are the north and south exits of the village, the square,where my troops are setting camp, and the Chieftan's home both where the Mo Sala are organizing the exodus of their people and the Guest Quarters where I have the princess held. There are no other places that could be used as an escape or of any importance to me.

She recognized us, meaning that she can probably tell us more about how we work. Such as side effects and the like.
Besides that? People can't keep secrets from us, so we'll be able to tell how devoted she is to you. We can also explain the plan to get past her father's troops and her part in it.

There is much work to do. You have your part here and now, while we have to arrange things in advance.
No. 216337 ID: c2c011

I would rather supervise stuff here. Oh, and you should give someone you trust back in the village orders to prepare for a hasty retreat if it becomes necessary.

You should always make back up plans in case the first plan fails, and then back up plans for the back up plans and so on. Have to make sure there is virtually no possibility of getting surprised.

Oh, no. She's quite right; we're a rather dangerous artifact. The Mo Sala said we would bring luck, not that we're harmless. However, that just makes it more important that we know more about what we are and what we can do.

Know this: we are many who are one, each voice distinct but fleeting and any of us may cooperate or disagree with one another. Our overall nature is to assist and guide by suggestion, to the benefit of all we ally with. We offer many possibilities but in the end your decisions are your own.

That's Lord Venian. He's pretty cool, have you seen him fight yet? His bones hold no secrets though, he's as human as they come.

Your skeleton though, what stories do your bones tell, princess? Have you studied anatomy, or will we need to get a book later on this?

Also, we asked to talk to you and Lord Venian granted that request. We're hoping to get to know you better.
No. 216948 ID: 40cb26

Just a little reminder, we can hear your thoughts. The surface ones at least. Makes it simpler than speaking out loud, and as a bonus you look less crazy. So, how did you father describe us?
No. 216969 ID: c2c011

Well you didn't seem to listen to closely to your father. If you did then I don't think they would have found a servant spanking you.

Anyway, why does that bitch of an advisor that your father keep around hate your guts so much? And your siblings as well it seems.
No. 216981 ID: 701a19

When did your father hand us to you, and why?
Further, what do you know about us? Our abilities? Our nature?

There's no sense denying your perversions, as we have been with Veni the entire time and seen your behavior. You would do well to be honest with us, first and foremost about your attraction to Veni and your desire to be his love slave.

Beyond that, we have created a golden opportunity for you. You see, Lord Venian is a Rezan nobleman, and among the Rezan it is an abomination to sleep with a slave that is below a certain rank. If he indulged in you then at minimum it would mean disownment on par with your own, but there would be a decent chance of execution.
In order for you to properly have the place you desire - and don't insult us by trying to deny it - we have arranged for you to have a chance to advance your rank.
In a few days you will come within range of your father's forces. The basic plan is for everybody to disguise as refugees, and have you and Lord Venian ride out to meet with their officers to secure passage. They will not know about your dismissal, so you will be able to very easily convince them that you and a few royal guards are traveling with refugees fleeing the war zone. If they express concern over Lord Venian's obviously foreign nature, then tell them he's there for 'diplomatic talks' in such a way as to suggest that you are sleeping together and that the officers should keep that information to themselves. There is a decent supply of money should you feel a bribe is appropriate.

This plan proves to Lord Venian's people that you are loyal, and it meets the criteria for improved rank by saving the lives of Lord Venian and his troops. This is the situation you need to be in if you want to have a happy life.

So, what do you think of this plan?
No. 216990 ID: f62611

The more honest you are, the better we can tailor your enviroment. Or we can just berate you fo' info. That isn't nice though

Oh...well i was in heat. And-and normally I stay locked in my room until the urges pass, but my door was unlocked and well...I lost control. But that was the only time!!

And what advisor are you talking about. My father has many of those.

I couldn't make out the first part...ah...I see. I suppose that plan could be effective...though normally I am expected to stay out of sight of the commoners and have a royal guard speak on my behalf...perhaps Lord Venian-jin
No. 217277 ID: 732129


We speak the way people need to be spoken to, Princess. Calculated crassness can help shock a woman out of old modes of thinking, help her evaluate things as they are instead of how they ought to be.

So. Why'd you steal us if you weren't going to use us?
No. 217281 ID: 701a19

Oh? So you've been in heat the entire time you've been his prisoner? You've been enjoying this treatment, and it's rather bold to claim otherwise.
We've been altering events to get you the life we think you want, but if you cooperate with us by telling what you desire then we can do a far superior job of it.

We heard that anecdote from Li Jue. Chang Narobu's Third Strategist and First Mistress.
That said, I'm curious why your father would let you have such a valuable artifact when he was so displeased with you.
It might be that Li Jue is manipulating your father in preparation for betraying him, in which case we would like you to make one small alteration to the plan. Namely, that you make the officers swear on their families honor to tell no one but your father himself that Li Jue is planning on betraying him and has already made a failed attempt on your life, as well as that if you are missing or dead within the month then it means she has succeeded. True or false, that works to your advantage.

Beyond that, there is a decent chance that they will try to separate you from your entourage in order to be sure that you aren't being coerced. If that happens then your story needs to match what Lord Venian tells them.

I don't understand...Li Jue was so kind to me...why? I thought she may have resented my mother but...I never knew it stretched to me or my siblings...And now here I am. Slave to a Ju Gwah lord, to be subjected to I don't know...I don't know why she would do this. I don't know if my father really wanted me gone. But if he did-it hurts now.

I never suggested you stole it. Quite the contrary, I was mulling over how contradictory those two actions are.

Regardless, you need to tell us what you want from this life. You're currently on track for being Lord Venian's personal plaything; does this please you? How would you like your relationship with him to be? What position would you like by his side? Or not?
Answer completely and truthfully.
No. 217313 ID: c2c011

Don't worry about it. We will make sure that bitch pays and you get a good life. We got some grand plans for a bright new future. I'm sure you will grow to appreciate it in time.

By the way, do you have any insight in how your father might move around his troops in this invasion. Anything that allows us to bypass them would be helpful.

wait wait wait, this is making less and less sense.
Why would your dad tell you about us if he wanted it delivered. You could have been a liability if he wanted you dead...

I have a feeling you were expected to have us, and that he sent you out for your own good.

She's aware of the plan and has agreed to it.

We're nearly certain that her father is being betrayed by his mistress, but haven't informed the princess of this fact. This is important, since it requires us to make changes to the plan to account for divergent loyalties.

Also, she may have been in heat since you encountered her. Interesting, but not particularly useful. Wrap some velvet on your iron fist when handling her.

ugh, one in here thought it would be funny to say how much you want to bang her. and as you know everything is said, we can't silence another.

anyway. it seems this may indeed all be a ploy of Li Jue, as she was on a mission to give us to her brother when you got us. she also claims that the rumor was just somehow her door was unlocked while she was in heat, resulting in her wanting to bang the first thing that walked in. still has a spanking fetish though, her denying it SO hard means it is true. you don't react like that to falsehood.

Not just at some point, but apparently we helped him with his meteoric rise to power.

We didn't remember this because of the nature of our enchantment. Who knew, huh?

Anyway Gyoji was blind-sided by her expectations of how we would behave.

I suspect there's a reason why her father stopped using us. A good one, not just that we're crass and rude. She said she was to deliver us to her brother. I wonder if he is a full-blooded brother, or a half brother by Li Jue? I didn't get a chance to clarify before we upset her.

Well it's good to know she agrees. It means she's becoming less resistant and easier to manipulate. Which means less hassle for me. Now that the um...'inscribing' thing is done, that paint is cold especially in my nethers, what else should I inspect?

A good observation. If the fight does go into the city, I want to know where we can defend ourselves. Iagn has been exploring the village to get rid of his nausea, so if anyone has a good knowledge of the layout it's him.

"Iagn, I-what happened to you? You look different I-"

"Hat hair. That's it."

"Right. How does defense look in the village should fighting pour into here?"

"It's the worst place I could possibly be. There are no walls, the only defense they have is this barrier and it allows anyone in. The buildings are flimsy, flammable, and aside from the Chieftan's house, can be easily surrounded. The only plus I can see is that all the civilians are leaving before the fighting starts. That way I don't waste any energy killing them if they get in the way. My best suggestion for defense is do NOT allow it to pour in here otherwise it will be a bloodbath."

Well that's good to know I guess, don't fight in the village. Possibly torch the whole place if you need to withdraw and hope it slows down pursuers.

Hmm, maybe you should actually put the slaves and the people who won't be fighting to the south side of the village to make sure they can withdraw easily, and order a few of them to be ready to torch the entire place at your order.

True he does seem smarter than his superior. Though the original plan is to wait for Kamagan's signal. Right now, all I am to do is to wait for Kamagan to move the dolls into position.

Well the illusions is one part. Personally I want to bring that general here where I am standing. It will give Shadeleaf a perfect shot at him. FAiling that close enough so my blades can shear that ugly face of his.

While I do want to anger him, I need to provoke him to attack. If I did that, he would probably send his entire troop against me, which isn't the plan.

"If he had then you'd be dead already. I'm just here looking for fresh meat for the slave paddocks back home. Too bad you're all so incompetent I wouldn't even trust you to muck stables properly."

"Upstart! You shall regret those words soon enough. Kajiro! Punish him!"

"Oh? Must the mighty general hide behind his lackeys?"

"You have not earned the right to die by my blade! That tainted blood of yours would sully a weapon such as mine beyond use. Kajiro, what are you waiting for strike him down!"

"But my lord surely this is a tra-"

"You are not here to think! You are here to fight! Kill this vile creature!"

It seems your initial guess was correct, this old man shows some intelligence. Now it seems I must face him. I just hope Shadeleaf does not mistake him for the leader.

HA, i like mustache dude. it is saddening that he is about to die, just a little. if you can i suggest trying to make it look like it's a close match for a little. warm up on him.
No. 241175 ID: 701a19

This guy realized it was a trap, which means he's both smart and clearheaded. My advice would be to try to avoid killing him; the fact that the leader called him by name means that he's a direct subordinate, which means he would be taking the position when his commander fell.

You can use this.
If he lives and the leader dies then you can suggest he have his new command avoid battles that wouldn't harm his real enemy.
No. 241219 ID: c2c011

Tell mustache dude that you can make an exception for him. He could get some quite nice position, he just needs to surrender.

If he doesn't then kill his old ass. If he does then further insult the leader and tell him that he's so incompetent he turns loyal soldiers into turncoats, because they can't stand serving under such a moron.

Now you can say something like:
"So, 'commander', you obviously didn't get your position for your wits, sending others to die in your place means it wasn't for your honor or bravery, so that leaves few options.
Tell me, was it your skill in combat, or did your mother sleep her way into you inheriting this position?
Or maybe you and your lord has an unseemly fondness for men?"
No. 242048 ID: c2c011

He can still use his arms. Better take out one of them as well.

Then we can keep insulting the commander. Something about how it's a great shame that his incompetence cost him such a good subordinate. Not that it was any real challenge, but the guy obviously had more smarts and a better fashion sense when it comes to helmets.
No. 242153 ID: 701a19

No. He lost his foot, and that's enough. Beyond just making him unable to fight effectively, it very clearly shows that he is completely outclassed. Doing any further harm to him would be taken as uncertainty.
No. 242155 ID: c71597

He can still present a threat. He could throw the spear or use it as a crutch to hobble over and distract us at a most inoppurtune moment. Safe thing to do is to make sure he's completly out of comission.
No. 242158 ID: 701a19

You haven't spent much time around limb loss, have you?
The chance of him being conscious is very low, we can take a few steps and keep him within our field of vision, his morale and loyalty are in the pits right now due to his commanding officer giving him an absurdly stupid order, and there is a small army of unharmed people there who are more than capable of interfering.

Attacking a crippled man would be taken as a sign of uncertainty and weakness. Besides, we want him alive and in fairly good condition.
No. 242190 ID: c71597

He hasn't lost that foot though. If he had, then that would have been fine, nothing else would be neede, he would likely pass out or be catatonic from chock. But it's still attached. Which is why we should make sure he can't do anything stupid that would force us to kill him. If we have to we can explain our reasoning to the others.

Even if we do cripple him for life he can still be useful. He seems pretty bright and observant. We should be able to find somehting nice for him to do where he can use those smarts for something good.

Well decapitation works here. Cut off the head, tell them he was a moron that has lead them to their death. Throw the head into their middle and then laugh, ask them who is next.

That's just it. He shows the skills to be a slave but...

"If you think I will talk Ju Gwah, then you will be disappointed. My loyalty lies only with Hayaso, the true Emperor of Hangzung! Kill me already and take my head to your abomination of a leader."

...that springs up. Eastaland soldiers are in general fanatical to their lord, Kuta being one of those rare exceptions. Yes a Holdmaster can break that near unbending loyalty, but it's costly and time consuming. This is why I'm conflicted. I can gain valuable insight into the Hayaso nation, perhaps even a staunch bodyguard, but until such a time I will have a rebellious spirit more difficult than the princess.
