Oh, hello there.

I don't suppose you could help me out with this?

You see, I'm trying to write a story, but I only have a few ideas about the very beginning. I can't even decide on what it should be about.

So, if you could pick some kind of largish monstrous fantasy race (that isn't a sergal), and a gender (or both of them; if that's what you really want, I won't stop you), I'd be much obliged. We've got to start somewhere!

This will be a story about a naga! (Or whatever you call snake-person-things. I'm going to go with "naga" for consistency, unless you really want me to use "lamia" instead.)

A female naga, since that's what you want.

So, I have another set of questions for you! And I know these are kind of minor cosmetic things, but I'm just trying to make sure that your character looks the way you want her to!

Do you want her to be more or less snakelike? (Or, if you're a visual type and you want something that isn't either one of those options, you could show me that instead.)

And what sort of coloration do you want?

Once I get those questions answered, we can start the actual story!
No. 220699 ID: d677cc

(And before you complain at me, they do have arms! I'm sure you're familiar with this sort of visual shorthand.)

Naga and Lamia are both fine, neither term is used accurately. Nagas had many forms and Lamia was a specific creature just as variable in its description.

Anyways, I vote for more human shape but snake in substance. So scales instead of skin, arms and curves, no hair but more human shaped face.
No. 220721 ID: d677cc


and also like make the options more discrete

SO I AM THROWING OUT ALL OF THE CURRENT VOTES and presenting you with the following options:

* 100% snake. Basically just a snake with like arms attached up near the neck or something.
* Mostly snake, but like with a distinctly humanoid torso up there and presumably tits. Something like the "snakier" option drawn in the image.
* Classic "lamia" type. Like the "less snaky" option drawn up there.
* Some other thing. But you're going to need to be descriptive.

Right! A more snakelike, black-and-copper female naga you want, a more snakelike, black-and-copper female naga you get! (And again, for those of you for whom this might be a concern, and for anyone who wants to draw her, she is supposed to have breasts, since that's what you've voted for. Blame the way I draw if it's not obvious.)

Now, I believe we were going to try to write a story. (In case you've forgotten how this works from last time, the gist of it is you can suggest actions for the protagonist --- or you can suggest things that could happen to the protagonist! Or both! My job is to try to keep things somewhat coherent as we go along; I'm hoping this turns out to have a little more consistency than the original LIAR but I don't want to ruin the spontaneity that people indicated to me was part of its charm. Let's see if we can't have some fun with this!)

Scalene was awoken from her nap by a thunderstorm! She felt an urge to unfurl her hood, although it seemed a bit silly since it wasn't about to provide her cover from the rain.

Scalene sought shelter from the rain in the first good place she could find --- a cave, protected from the elements by a couple of large, well-placed rocks. She was certainly glad to be out of the storm.

But it seemed that the cave was not empty! As she pulled herself all the way inside, she saw a fire up ahead, and something curled up near it... something small... and frightened...

As Scalene continued into the cave, she saw a small rabbit-like creature wearing an inexplicably fancy hat cowering and muttering something to itself. She mused that it probably hadn't expected her to enter what she supposed was probably its cave.

Scalene wondered whether she should do something, or whether she should wait and let the rabbit do something, or ...

File 128254983260.png - (5.94KB , 400x400 , 008.png )

Scalene began to coil herself up near the fire. As she did so, she said to no one in particular, and with the speech impediment serpentine creatures are known for, "Thiss iss Ssnake. I'm in possisshon."

She wasn't sure why she said that, and felt a little silly for doing so. The rabbit was apparently confused enough by this comment to look up at her.

Scalene decided to have a little fun. She pulled herself up a bit and leaned over towards the little rabbit, then said, "Hello there, little rabbit. I am not hungry, just ssoaked. Will you relakss and be good company, or sshould I have company for ssupper?"

As she said this, she gave the rabbit her best smile.

And it seemed to get the desired effect. The rabbit wasn't able to manage much beyond a whimper. Scalene considered what she should do next, or whether the rabbit would do anything besides, presumably, wish there wasn't a naga in its cave.

In the meantime, the storm sounded like it was only getting worse.
No. 221381 ID: 112399

Of course, we need a name for her. Any ideas?

No. 221516 ID: 059120

The rabbit, immediately distressed by Scalene's coiling, introduced himself as Griff, a traveler who was chased into this this cave by a dreadful monster (much more intimidating than a simple Naga, he realized, gaining some courage) that made it's home upon the plains. He kindly asked his uninvited visitor to cease such unbecoming behavior, as her cold blooded nature meant it would not be beneficial, anyway!

No. 221527 ID: 0b2a05

Thankfully, as Scalene was a lamia and not a snake snake, her warmness allowed her to slightly improve the temperature in the cave. The rabbit, while scared, introduced herself as Griffa.
No. 221535 ID: d677cc
File 128260897739.png - (5.24KB , 400x400 , 009.png )

Scalene curled herself around the rabbit and fire to share warmth (being, of course, a relatively warm-blooded creature, and not just a snake, after all) and lowered her torso a bit, so as to scare the small creature less. The rabbit didn't appear to exactly appreciate the gesture, but was still too cowed to voice any protest.

"I am Sscalene," the naga said. "Who are you, if you'll let me assk?"

The rabbit hesitated to respond to her, but after a moment mustered the courage.

"O Naga Scalene, I am called (--was that Griff, or Griffa? Scalene wasn't quite sure--) and I am a traveler. I was forced to hide inside this cavern by a simply dreadful monster! ... No offense intended toward you, of course." While it had managed to respond to her, Griff(a?) still didn't seem comfortable in the presence of a naga. Scalene felt almost like chuckling.

Scalene pondered. Did she know of such a monster? Should she and Griff(a?) continue to converse about something? Would she return to her nap (only to have it inevitably interrupted again)?
No. 221546 ID: 40cb26

Napping now seems pointless if you'll just be awoken again. No reason we can't simply rest though. Continue to converse with Griffa (the "a" sound given little emphasis). Ask it more details about the monster, realizing that it must be light, stealthy, flying or all of those for you not to have noticed it earlier. You can feel and would wake up to the movement of most things near or large.

Then ask it more about its travels.
No. 221548 ID: 117dce

Oh, Scalene remember the monster. It lives in the hills in an old, broken cart and it's name is Vuul. It's a giant jerk that goes around messing with people for no reason. You should probably tell Griffa about it.
No. 221565 ID: 0b2a05

Rest out the storm. Feels nice, in a warm cave, with a bunny, nice fire, with the sound of rain and wind outside. Ask griffer about being a traveler.
No. 221645 ID: 644ca1

Vuul is a young dragon, of a breed much smaller than most. He is not known to show kindness or mild temper. She is not sure if this is the monster Griff(a?) talks about though.
No. 221720 ID: d677cc
File 12826638182.png - (5.59KB , 400x400 , 010.png )

Scalene was in fact aware of something (other than herself) in the local area that could be construed as a monster. A young, ill-tempered dragon named Vuul made its home in the hills in a large, broken cart that had once been garishly decorated as part of a royal procession, and generally made life unpleasant for those around him. He was quite small for one of his kind, but even a creature not much larger than a horse can prove quite destructive when endowed with the ability to breathe fire.

"Sso, Griffa. Thiss monsster you sspeak of. Wass it a dragon? And how, in your travelss, did you arrive in theesse hillss?"

As Scalene waited for her companion to answer, she could hear the storm continuing to rage outside. She supposed resting here for a few hours would be quite alright, if it came to that.
No. 221739 ID: 40cb26

Griffa didn't spend much time looking at it, most time was for running. She does remember red and fire. There was much red which was fire and red which was not fire, which actually describes Vuul rather well.

Griffa came to the hills from over the mountains, having to traverse them because of a large river blocking her path. The mountains, although somewhat small and she only crossed the edge of them, were a difficult trek for her and hoped the smaller hills would prove safer and easier to travel. Until all the red and fire, it was.
No. 221841 ID: 79927b

Griffa told Scalene that yes, a dragon was probably what he saw. Although it could have been anything fiery, really.
No. 221929 ID: f202ec

"I don't know," Griffa cried, still shaking slightly. "It was big and it flew and I didn't see it until it dive-bombed me and then started laughing! I hid in the smallest hole I could fit into until I was sure it was gone... but When I tried to leave, there was fire blocking my path! So went deeper into the hole and eventually, after a long journey involving glowing mushrooms and strange locked gates with obscure puzzles, I found myself in these caverns."
No. 221935 ID: 0b2a05

The Grifster told Scalene that it was impossible to be sure of what was chasing him, as he didn't get a good look at it because of the light. Then Scalene fell asleep to ride out the storm underground... but the storm only got WORSE.
No. 221947 ID: ad7ce3

Nah, Scalene shouldn't sleep yet.

The storm did audibly get much worse though. Scalene couldn't help but think of Vuul getting his just desserts right about now. He hates rain.

But isn't it a bit too early for the huge seasonal rains? Had Scalene lost track of the day?
No. 221963 ID: d677cc
File 128270861788.png - (6.48KB , 400x400 , 011.png )

"It could have been a dragon, yes. Mostly, I only remember a lot of fire. I was traveling through these hills because the mountains proved far too strenuous for me; I hoped they would be safer and easier. Of course I wasn't expecting to run into an incensed firebreather. I ran into these caves for as long as it took to get away from the reach of the flames, and then continued through a surreal area with doors and glowing mushrooms before I found the firepit in this cavern. At that point I was exhausted, and was planning on resting here for some time, but just after I had gotten a fire going you slithered in here and frightened me again," Griffa said to the naga. Poor thing. Scalene felt bad about her comment earlier.

Meanwhile, the storm outside audibly got much worse, and a chilly wind started to blow into the cavern. Griffa shivered, and Scalene wondered if this was the start of the long rains, although it seemed a bit early. She might be down here a while, and would probably need to return to wherever she lived once the rain let up a bit if this was going to be a storm that would last for almost a month.

At least she wouldn't have to deal with Vuul. The dragon really hated the rain, and probably would have left this area by now if he weren't too small to challenge the other territorial creatures in the area.

Scalene wondered if she should continue to chat with the little rabbit about something or other (where was he traveling to, for example?), or perhaps try to comfort him somehow... or maybe she should just sleep until the storm let up a bit.
No. 222025 ID: 0b2a05

Scalene comforted the rabbit by slithering around and wrapping him up tightly (though not damagingly). She said I think you should sit back and relaxss, you're soaked. I'm sure that somehow everything shall start to get much... sweeter soon. She then fell asleep to wait out the storm.

...unfortunately, it only got much much worse, and the cave started to flood.
No. 222035 ID: 40cb26

Scalene has heard strange things concerning places with glowing mushrooms and doors, stories which range from silly to dangerous to downright bizarre. They are best to be avoided and not thought of again. But somehow they seem to not remain in the same places...

During the rains Scalene stays in her not too distant furnished burrow below the old big stump, the bottom remains of an exceptionally large tree whose roots provide her dens structure and cover for exits. She would do well to return there now if the storm ends and an irritable Vuul is in the area. Perhaps she can invite along Griffa to spend time with her there, if Griffa would trust her. Scalene is already well fed, as she is so prepared before every long rain.

Oh dear, tales of travels will have to wait. Griffa is now less likely to refuse keeping Scalene company, at least.
No. 222154 ID: f35afd

Now that Griffa isn't scared anymore, she explains that her home burrows where the other bunnies live was decimated by a plague. The four survivors all set out in different directions to try to find new places to live. Griffa has been looking for a new place to call home, but she hasn't had any luck yet.
No. 222176 ID: f202ec

Scalene decided to wait for a while by the fire to dry, and perhaps wait out the rain.

Griffa begins to tell her tale, of how she and the three other rabbits - two males, two females - set off to the four corners of the map to find a safe new land to call their home. Before they parted, they took a vow to meet again in two years' time.

Scalene was fascinated. She had never heard of a brave rabbit before - though Griffa seemed to be brave only so far as a rabbit can be.

Please ignore all references to Griffa's masculinity in the last post. You guys seem to want a character with no canonically established gender, and I certainly don't want to stop you.

Scalene, of course, stayed in her furnished burrow beneath the remains of an ancient tree during the rains. It was not especially far from this cave, and the naga wondered if perhaps she ought to invite the rabbit to stay with her, as these rains were known last for weeks.

"Sso, where are you trying to go, little Griffa?" Scalene asked the rabbit.

The rabbit seemed like it had prepared an answer for this one. "You see, O Scalene, my home was ravaged by a plague some months ago. Only four of us survived. We set out for the corners of the earth to try and find new homes for ourselves, but made a vow to meet again in two years' time. Or, probably, one year and eight months' time, now. I have not yet been able to find somewhere to live, but I hope I will soon."

Scalene had never thought of a rabbit of any kind as brave before, but she found herself associating the term with the shy creature before her. It must have taken a lot of willpower indeed for such a small, naturally timid thing to agree to travel the earth alone.

She decided she may as well try to make Griffa feel a little better. She wrapped the rabbit up with the end of her tail, figuring this was the most reasonable approximation to a hug she could come up with.

"Wha--!" Griffa instictively struggled against her. "What are you doing?!"

"Relakss, little rabbit. You are cold, and ssoaked -- you musst have fallen in an underground sstream on your way here -- and your fire iss going out. I mean only to keep you warm." The naga wasn't sure that Griffa completely believed her, but whether to avoid offending her or out of genuine trust, the rabbit at least tentatively accepted her explanation.

Scalene could probably return to her nap now, assuming there wasn't anything else she wanted to say to the rabbit, or vice versa. The rain was still, by the sound of it, a good deal heavier than she really wanted to try to slog through, if she could avoid it.

Stored event: Flood.

You can go ahead and nap. If the fire's going out, why not coil yourself up more tightly? You and Griffa will probably be warmer that way.
No. 222525 ID: 117dce

Scalene should let her coils drape loosely, and tell Griffa that she's going to go to sleep. That way Griffa knows that it can just leave if it wants. Scalene should tell Griffa that it can come to her burrow if it wants to once the rain slacks up some.

"Well, little Griffa, I think I will go to ssleep. With the rain thiss bad, I will probably have to sstay here for a while." As Scalene said this, she began to lay down near the rabbit.

"If you want, I sshall let you sstay in my burrow later; theesse rainss will lasst for weekss." Griffa sort of half-nodded.

Before long, the combination of the lack of light, shared warmth, and constant sound of the rain coming down outside led both Scalene and Griffa to fall asleep.

Griffa grabbed Scalene's arm and urged her deeper into the caverns.

"The - the tunnels I came through sloped downhill, so the caverns above must be dryer than here. Right? I... think you can fit. I mean, I'm sure of it!. And I drew a map as I traveled, so I could be sure to find my way back home."

Griffa clung to the naga as she quickly worked her way out of the cave and back into the hills.

How long had they been asleep? Either it had been longer than she thought, or else this was the worst storm to hit this area Scalene could remember. The valleys between the hills were already filling up with water; the naga was going to have to do a lot of swimming to get to her burrow.

But nothing else was going to happen on the way there, right?

The doobies were pests, and seemed appallingly stupid, but was revenge the best plan? Even the most aggressive of the lot was entirely harmless with his soft rubber bat. As likely as not the others had simply blundered into her lair - repeatedly - though blind chance.

Oh yes, there was one still left. She smashed it against the wall to stun it, then coiled around it and crushed it slowly, savoring the moment.

The naga slithered closer to the burrow, when out of the blue—

"Scalene! Behind you!"

She only had a moment to react before she was clocked in the back of the head with ... a foam bat?

Damn it all! Scalene had enough problems with normal doobies, but here was her self-proclaimed "archnemesis," Von Doobus! These guys were more of an annoyance than anything, but that didn't mean she was happy to be hit in the head and—was that another one trying to steal one of her cushions?

Something had to be done about these pests. Scalene figured that phyiscal force might do the job.

She coiled rather tightly around the doobie at her back, and twisted to face him.

"Sstay away from my burrow! You do thiss far too often, and I'm ssick of it. Go find ssomeone elsse to ssteal from."

Von Doobus appeared to be having some trouble breathing and didn't really respond, but as soon as she released him he tore off into the hills, followed rapidly by the rest of his gang.

Now what? Some of Scalene's things were still strewn about in front of her burrow, and she suspected the interior might be a bit ransacked as well. It might take a while to clean this up.

Scalene grabbed the things that were out in the rain, and she and Griffa entered the burrow. The place was a total wreck; the unwanted invaders had gone through whatever they could find, apparently. At least she'd caught them before they could make off with too much.

And there was in fact something in here that the doobies had left behind!

The naga caught only a brief glimpse of two fuzzy things she wasn't all that familiar with huddled together before they quickly darted down one of the passages in apparent fear. Scalene wondered if she shoud go figure out where they went, or leave it for later and get things together for herself and her guest, since the rains were going to last for a while.

Lazuhrek are normally rather larger and tougher than Doobies (especially the mountain type), anything they were keeping must be children. They are also naturally blind, but echolocate as well as seeing.

The doobies must have tapped into the vast cave network in the area, although Scalene found it a bit suspicious that there would be a tunnel she'd never encountered this near her burrow. After a moment of thought, she used her hands and tail to significantly expand the hole in the wall such that she could comfortably pass through it.

Scalene wondered if she and the others should go on inside, or...?

Up ahead, Scalene saw a very faint bluish glow.

The group cautiously slipped into the tunnel, Scalene leading the way. There was a faint, bluish glow coming from something up ahead, though none in the party could see quite what it was. Griffa hopped up onto Scalene's tail to get a better look.

"Oh, this looks much like the caverns I passed through earlier!" the rabbit said.

Griffa stopped to listen and cocked one large ear. "Do you hear that?"

Scalene, being mostly snake, didn't have very good ears. However, she could feel a vibration in the tunnel through her scales. Behind them, the two children huddled into a frightened ball of fur again.

"Do you hear that?"

Scalene did not; her sense of hearing was nowhere near as acute as any of her companions'. However, she was able to feel a vibration coming from further down the tunnel. Evidently, the lazurek heard it too.

It wasn't long before the bluish glow resolved into a blue, glowing cavern nymph, dancing before a treasure and a small spring. As it noticed the naga, it abruptly stopped its celebration and crouched defiantly in front of its possessions while seemingly trying to stare Scalene down.

The nymph sighed and told the group that they couldn't have its treasure unless they answered a riddle, delivering her spiel in a way that suggested she'd done it many times before. Scalene looked to her companions, and then back to the nymph. She asked if any of the treasure was from her burrow. As it happened, it was not.

The naga thought for a moment and decided to give the nymph a small trinket to add to her trove, for which the nymph expressed gratitude.

It had all started when Scalene's mate had dumped her for being too long.

In her post-breakup funk, she sought the company of an old friend: a dreamworm named Roz she had met as a hatchling.

But in the present, the nymph was getting impatient with the naga's indecision. "How dare you harbor that thief? It stole my most precious possession! It probably doesn't even know what that magical watch DOES!"

After letting that slip, the nymph clapped its hands over it's mouth. Was she some sort of guardian or something? And if so, why did she offer her treasure to anyone who happened to wander by? Scalene was getting confused!

Scalene was pulled out of her reminiscing about her old friend by the argument taking place between Griffa and the nymph, who now addressed the naga.

"How dare you harbor that thief? It stole my most precious possession! It probably doesn't even know what that magical watch DOES!"


Scalene wasn't entirely sure what the nymph was talking about. And come to think of it, why was she offering her treasure to anyone who wandered by anyway? The naga wondered how to respond...

"Calm down," Scalene told the nymph. "What'ss going on?"

"That rabbit stole my magical watch!"

Griffa glared at the nymph from behind Scalene, but didn't say anything.

"What do you want uss to do?"

"I want the watch back. And I think the rabbit should have to clean up my cavern to make up for stealing it."

"That rabbit must have caused the watch to make an alternate dimension," The nymph said, "The only way to fix things is to defeat the seven devils maintaining it."

That seemed... a bit contrived, but what choice did she have? Scalene gathered the Lazureks and started to leave when the nymph stopped them.

"Oh no you don't. I don't trust you to clean up your own mess, and I'm not going to do it for you. Leave the children here as proof that you'll return. Don't worry, I'll look after them."

(Even if her tail is infinitely long, it would not collapse unless contained within a finite area, in which case there would be no free space for anything else but her, which is clearly not the case, or if a large portion of it were compressed spectacularly into a sphere of incredible density, the results of which would likely be lethal far before enough mass was contained within a localized Schwarzschild radius.)

Forcing a smile, she Asked the spider if the spider liked snake hugs, because it's spidery wiggling had tickled her in a most pleasant manner.

The spider rubbed her scales a little with one of its legs, and responded by saying that of course it did, and she was the most beautiful snake it had ever seen in its whole entire life.

It leaned in close, rubbing up and down her flank with one gentle pedipalp, and she responded, caressing its smooth cephelothorax.

Feelings that Scalene had never experienced before flowed through her as their mutual caresses continued, making her flush and nervous. They leaned in close, both hungry to explore the alien anatomy of the other.

"... anyway, I'm not one of the Seven Devils. My master is, though. He's the Devil of Lust, and you can find him right down this passage... unless you'd rather stay with me, you beautiful snake~"

To clarify, his shape shifts to be the physical ideal of whomever he encounters. His apparent race and even gender are thus mostly arbitrary.

For the most part, he's relatively amicable to anyone he feels is already significantly driven by lust, since they're "his people", but can get very hostile to anyone he thinks is not. Given the usual devilish mastery over their respective sins, such hostility can have very ugly results- being cursed by a devil of lust can lead to a miserable and twisted existence indeed.

... causing Scalene to become the Demon of Lust herself!

She suddenly felt much... hornier.

The naga wondered what being a Demon of Lust entailed, exactly... and for that matter where she should go to find the next demon.
No. 338421 ID: 3fd4fb

Being a Demon of Lust means that she can no longer gain sustenance from any method but inspiring lust in others. When she does so, she instinctively nibbles off bits of their soul, which sustain her and make her stronger.

If she doesn't inspire any lust and devour souls thereby, she'll eventually wither away and die. On the other hand, if she gorges herself, she'll get all kinds of nifty lust-based magical powers.
No. 338424 ID: 221021

Lust demons aren't allowed to wear equipment or clothes, but they are magically attractive to anything, regardless of their normal tastes in species or gender. They can exert a degree of control over the people who they seduce. Also, they get invited to the annual demon lord picnic!

Scalene found the demon's invitation on a table nearby, and decided to go in his stead to find the rest of the demon lords.
No. 338426 ID: eba49f

Being the Demon of Lust means she now feeds off of others experiencing lust nearby, and has some control over those who are motivated by lust.

It also attracts the occasional inconvenient adventurer who seeks to 'vanquish the evil' (whether this is a euphemism depending on the adventurer), and sometimes attracts worshipers who tend to be kind of creepy.

People naturally give off small pieces of their life force when they are aroused. Luckily for them, it regenerates when they return to a resting state. Unfortunately, Scalene is a demon of lust, and is thus in a state of permanent sexual arousal, constantly losing energy. With her new demonic powers, she can absorb some of the energies of other people she arouses. If she actually sexually gratifies somebody, however, she can take as much of their life force as she wants, up to and including all of it. (Killing them)

Also the thing about the picnic.
No. 338436 ID: 852df7

Scalene decided to check on the spider demon, since technically it should be her minion now.

It explained things like >>338421 and >>338426 to her, and also explained that in the future she should perhaps learn to control automatically shapeshifting into the object of desire for nearby people.

She hadn't even noticed that the prior demon's curse of eight legs had been fulfilled in a manner he(?) probably hadn't expected!

It occurred to Scalene that, while she might not herself understand the ramifications of her curse, the spider in the other room, being a servant of the prior lust demon, probably would.

She headed back through the cave and asked the spider what she had turned into.

"If you've taken his powers... you'll be able to sustain yourself on the lust of others, and control them through their lust. To help you in this, you will be magically attractive to everything. You can no longer wear clothing or equipment and may attract worshippers. Would-be adventurers may come to try to 'vanquish' you, as well. And of course you're invited to the annual picnic of the demons, which will be quite soon..."

It was quite a bit to take in at once. The naga wasn't sure how she should feel about all this...

"... oh, and you can alter your form to whatever is the ideal of anyone around you ... you seem to know how to do that already, though~"

During the subsequent sloppy spider makeouts Scalene developed a plan to defeat the other demons and return to her normal not slutty at all world where maracas have not yet been invented.
No. 339686 ID: ec0bf5

She changed back in fright from realizing that she was a spider, and after gathering herself decided that the best way to take out the demons would be to go to the picnic and turn them against each other. She also felt a little uneasy about the whole shape-shifting thing. She was already both normally and magically attractive, and was worried about what she might change into. What if the person turned out to be attracted to men and made her change genders? What if they liked something really weird, or some kind of form she would be helpless in? A demon could easily be attracted to helpless young girls. Or worse yet, what if they didn't like long tails? Scalene decided that she should be more careful about transforming from now on and figure out how to not automatically do it.
No. 339747 ID: ce4a4d


This, barely. She could feel a tugging at her spirit in the spider's presence, and it took a constant force of will to maintain her natural form beneath the strangely pleasant warmth of the minor devil's lusty gaze.

Before going to the picnic, she thought perhaps she should visit the nymph again to let her know about the situation and perhaps pick up some tips on handling the demons.

"Scalene, what happened to you? What happened to your clothes?"

Her what?
No. 339759 ID: 9c538a

Scalene quickly reverted to her normal form, finding it quite uncomfortable being a spider. Even then, she felt a tugging at her... spirit? while she remained near the spider. She would have to be careful with this new ability.

"Sso... if I killed all the demonss... and got all their powerss..."

"I think you would become the most powerful... but I don't know."

The naga made up her mind to go to the picnic and try to turn the demons against each other to defeat them.

Scalene explained what had transpired and how she had found herself transformed into a new Demon of Lust upon vanquishing the old. The nymph accepted this, but still questioned why this meant the naga wasn't wearing anything.

While trying to think of an answer, Scalene saw for a moment the hazy images of a handsome creature similar to her own subject of affection, which she knew must be the nymph's true desire ... and suddenly found herself holding the nymph's clothes, which immediately caught fire

"What on earth are you doing, you daft snake?!"

She explains that this is part of the curse, and she can't help it. The curse destroys all clothes in her possession and forces her to do the same with any clothes she sees.

I vote for this. The demon of SLOTH(S) was a GROUND SLOTH, because he was so lazy he couldn't climb trees. He was also too lazy to go to the picnic, so it was at his place, the ELEMENTAL PLANE OF BEDS. He had the power to MAKE PEOPLE DO THINGS FOR HIM. The demon of SLEAZE was in fact a HUMAN LAWYER. He had the power to SUE PEOPLE WHO SLIGHTED HIM FOR WHATEVER HE WANTED. The demon of lust was SEXY SNAKE, we know her already. The demon of GRIEVOUS BODILY HARM was a humanoid creature MADE OF BROKEN GLASS. It had the power to MAKE PEOPLE SCARED as well as the power to GIVE DEADLY HUGS. The demon of MISSING SOCKS AND VARIOUS OTHER SMALL THINGS was a small imp, with the power to PICKPOCKET OR GENERALLY STEAL OBJECTS AT RANGE. Because of this ability she was a FRIEND OF THE OLD DEMON OF LUST, for whom she often stole articles of clothing. The demon of REALLY COOL PEOPLE was just a REGULAR OLD ROCK, that had the power to make EVERYBODY PERCEIVE IT AS A REALLY COOL GUY. The demon of THINGS NOT WORKING PROPERLY EVEN WHEN YOU'VE GIVEN THEM A GOOD THUMPING was a GIANT CENTIPEDE that had the ability to CLIMB INTO MACHINES AND CONTROL THEM. She was a big prankster. The demon of NUMERICAL INCONSISTENCIES was... IMPOSSIBLE TO LOOK AT. It just... wasn't there. It is a thing that shouldn't exist, a hole in the world. It had the power to do whatever it wanted WITHOUT BEING SEEN OR PERCEIVED. This made it THE MOST DANGEROUS DEMON.

Scalene was transported to the sex mall, a dimension outside of space and time where anything can be gotten for the right price. As all of the demons were known to have enemies, the "picnic" was not being conducted in the open, but rather in a greenhouse with some... very exotic plants.

The naga discovered that she was the last of the demons to arrive, and found herself being glared at by the seven creatures sitting around the table. A small quadrupedal mammal with an inconsistent number of legs sitting to Scalene's left finally broke the silence her appearance seemed to have caused.

"I suppose you're the new Demon of Lust?"


"Well, now that we're all present, let us go around the table and introduce ourselves, as it would seem that five of our number have been replaced since our last meeting."

As if on cue, the slothlike creature on Scalene's right began to speak.

Time to flesh out the demons a little bit! Scalene's going to have to track them down one by one, so for each of them we'll need things like where they normally hang out and what their abilities and weaknesses are.

"Hi," he droned in a low, gratingly slow voice. "I'm the Demon of Sloth." He paused to yawn very deliberately. "I live across the hall at the Mattress Depot. Can somebody get me a sandwich?"

No one responds. The sloth lolls his head back and forth, looking around the table, before settling on the demon to his right. The sloth's eyes flash, and the man grudgingly passes the nearest sandwich over.

As per paragraph 4 of section 29 of the recently accepted introduction procedures, I should state that my current address of residence is the Interplanar Bureau of Affairs, building 19, penthouse suite. No solicitors. Don't try anything funny, or I'll sue you for everything you've got. Including your soul."

He turned his glare to the sloth. "And that goes double for you. Don't do that again."

Sorry for the delay! Our next pair of demons are the Demon of Grievous Bodily Harm, a humanoid creature made entirely of broken glass, and the Demon of Things Not Working Properly Even When You've Given Them A Good Thumping, a giant centipede capable of controlling machinery with a penchant for pranks. And one of them should probably introduce the Demon of Really Cool People, the rock placed on the table between them.

To begin, Scalene played bad music and taught the demon of sloth to jazzercise.

The Demon of Grievous Bodily Harm slowly walked over to Scalene and said "Hi" in a voice that sounded like grinding glass. He then offered his hand. Scalene just gave him a pointed look, and the Demon of Sleaze chuckled before saying "Seriously Grieves, does that ever work?".
