My name is Lellonar Barogought

I am a high court wizard and chief adviser to King Tulose
but I have lied about my talents I am no great mage
were my King to find out the truth he would have me executed on the spot

as a wizard I have magic to help me out of difficult situations
my current spells are:

I can also try to make up magic on the spot, but it will drain my mana a lot faster, and the spell might be unreliable

an Elven ambassador has just arrived.
in five hours there will be a war council meeting.
the elf will be pushing for the king take action, and the king will turn to me for aid I am too weak to provide.

if the meeting doesn't expose me as a fraud, the war to follow will. I have no intention to die this way, I must find a way to save myself!

(suggest actions for Lellonar!)

No. 308595 ID: eba49f

What kind of telekinesis are we talking here?
Important factors are:
Force exerted
Can you concentrate the force in a smaller or larger area
Distance that you can cast at
Number of items lifted
Dexterity of maneuvered items
Do you need to see items to move them

If your telekinesis is good enough, you don't need any other offensive spells.
No. 309441 ID: b6ca92

Better idea: telekinesis on self!
Sure you may not have the power to throw boulders, but a little telekinetic force to your own body means you can throw them yourself!
So as for as making a good impression in court, grab the offending diplomat with telekinetically enforced super-strength, and proclaim you are the mighty MUSCLE WIZARD, SLAYER OF ARMIES, DESTROYER OF CASTLES! Then prove it by throwing one of his servants at a wall, pulverized into a splatter of bloody goo (or perhaps through the wall even)

hmmm discrediting the ambassador might work but how?

I cannot move myself with Telekinesis, I would need a levitate spell to get down that way

I've promised to defend the realm with my amazing powers, a task the King will soon call upon me too fulfill.

the elves despise me, as they do all non-elf wizards.

"fist magic"? what a preposterous idea, besides my Telekinesis is more than adequate for cuffing someone good

my shirt is of the finest make, I'd prefer not to damage it

my Telekinesis is as skilled as my own two hands and has the strength of well trained soldier

Yeah, let's just engage in stealthy murder using telekinesis powers. Don't tell me they have bitchin' forensics in your medieval world yet? It couldn't be too hard to stage a poor accident for the fellow.

Actually let's kill the king and frame the elf with regicide.
No. 312713 ID: 0d095c

This is a GREAT plan. Upvoting killing the king and starting a war with Elf Land. Grand Vizier Quest HOOOOO!

It will surely end our crippling disappointment at your lack of muscles, courage, manliness, beards, hair, honor, magic power.... I'm sad again now.
No. 312718 ID: c2c011

Killing the king would take care of a few problems. But you should probably kill the ambassador as well just to be on the safe side.
No. 312719 ID: 0d095c

Good idea! We assassinate the king, frame the ambassador, AND HAVE HIM EXECUTED! MWUHAHAHAHAHAHAH!
No. 312732 ID: f0e3ae

The problems with "Kill king, frame elf" plan is:
1. How do we actually kill the king, he is guarded.
2. How do we frame the elf?
3. We will still be in trouble for being unable to fulfill our promise... not only did we fail to protect the king, we will then be called to defend the country from the war with the elves, and we are back at square one.
No. 312735 ID: 0d095c

We just said we would telekenetically fatally wound the king with none the wiser and blame the elves. But hey. It was just a suggestion. We could try RUNNING or BECOMING A COMPETENT WIZARD. Every plan has a fatal flaw in it though.
No. 312812 ID: eba49f

I also say killing the king is a terrible idea. If nothing else, we would be known as a failure for letting him get killed.

People probably resist direct magical manipulation. However; here is something we should try:
You pick up a grain of sand with your telekinesis, then slam it into your enemy's head. The concentration of force in a small area should have an effect similar to stabbing them with a needle (except that length is not a problem and it does not have issues with bending like a physical needle would).
No. 312878 ID: c7b6a0

well you can take the diplomatic way out of it. why not simply remind everyone that it is certain they have their own great mages, and that we should not push for the use of magic in fear of escalating the problem?

also telekinesis? damm dude, you need some trainning.
No. 312903 ID: eba49f

Sure there are other spells you need than telekinesis, but if you use it well telekinesis is a great spell. (IMO the cheapest of the standard psi powers. Telepathy can be more powerful when it gets into mind control, but is also much more easily countered.)
No. 313562 ID: b6c6fc
File 130817158705.jpg - (192.26KB , 756x540 , WA2page6.jpg )

I am fairly certain it is completely impossible for the humble Telekinesis spell to do that

yes King Tulose's death would be very convenient for my situation

but how could this be achieved?

yes, the ambassador too must perish, elves are too clever and he would likely see through any subterfuge.

yes . . . framing the ambassador would be an ideal solution

it is exceedingly difficult to kill a man with telekinesis, and to do it with any degree of subtlety would be impossible
No. 313570 ID: c2c011

Well just because you can't use your spell to just sever a few bloodvessels doesn't mean you can do it subtly. Find a razor sharp metal shard, use telekinesis on it and float it up to king, slice throat and he bleeds out in seconds, dispose of blade and accuse cloaked elven assassins. The ambassador sadly did not survive the attempt to apprehend him.
No. 313571 ID: e3f578

It is very simple. Push the king off a high place using telekinesis with the elf nearby. Prejudice and racism will then force all officials to conclude that the elf is the kingslayer.

Or simply poison one of the king's drinks and place the poison within the elf's quarters. You'd have to keep track of the ambassadors location and lure him into the winery at least once. Racism will still prove to be the greatest tool in your plan.
No. 313577 ID: e3f578

You can make an auto-poison spell right? Or do you have to mix known spells and "make" your own spell? Try to make the composite magical poison a famous elven one.

Just hope some progressive douchebag that is intelligent with ample deductive skills wont get involved.
No. 313669 ID: 0d095c

I have an idea. The king is a fairly decent human being right? Find an incompetent JACKASS who DARED demand a position in the king's court. Make sure he is an arrogant loser, who is hungry for power. Give him a knife, convince him that you can turn him invisible so long as he does not speak, have him knife the king/ambassabor/both and then stab him with telekinesis when he tries to escape. Make sure you are JUUUUUST far enough away that you failing to save the king but killing the assassin is plausible.

Shocking how similar Lellonar is to the description I gave. I hope he's better at evil than he is at magic. I'm still bitter at his lack of Muscle Magic... If he isn't good at Evil I don't know what I'll do.
No. 313738 ID: 332ddc

with your current selection fo spells and its own limitations, you better try a sneak approach.

i liked the idea of framing the elf embassador, but this has the downside of actualy leading to a war on 2 fronts, thus increasing your demmand.

if you cant make way to peace, better pack your bags, loot what you can and leave.

but how would I lure the king to such a place with no witnesses?

Arcane poison is not a specialty of mine, but it is indeed an attempt I could make

this could work, but to find a patsy on such short notice may prove difficult . . .

No. 315400 ID: e3f578

here's your damn patsy
let him in on half the motivations
have him kill the king and dress himself up as an elf, then fry his ass with a fire spell immediately after the king is slain you can make up at the cost of more mana to make his body completely unrecognizable and then quickly blame the ambassador as an accomplice in the regicide, that he must have let him in or something. Remember, the petty minds of regular human beings and the meatbag guards will be quick to agree with you irregardless of the elf's claims of innocence and he'll be hung.
just tell this chump about the plan except for the part where you kill him, replace that with letting him conveniently escape through "complex machinations" that you'll set up but you really won't because that's a lie.
If he needs convincing just tell the fool that if you and him leave the king will send the army on a manhunt for the both of you, leaving regicide as the best option here.

Important point: When giving orders to him, disguise yourself as the elven ambassador (either with illusion, or good old-fashioned costumery). In the event everything goes tits-up and the guy gets captured alive, he'll still point the finger at the elves instead of you.

STOP GELTIC! STOP HIM! You were foolish enough to enter the room with him at your side, make this good to avert suspicion. Shout, "GELTIC, WHAT THE HELL ARE YOU DOING!?" And telekinetically knock him off balance. If you do it right, he'll fall into the elvish ambassador and be spitted on the guys' sword, making it look like you tried to get him alive but accidentally killed him.

DON'T LET THIS END UP LIKE MACBETH. DO NOT kill ANYONE after this incident is over unless we specifically tell you to. Too many murders will put all the suspicion on you. You can testify at the trial, however, that Geltic had been babbling that the King was an Elf Lover and would bring doom to this land, and TRUTHFULLY at that.

This should eliminate ALL problems, and hopefully the NEXT king will hate elves. If the heir is too young, try and angle yourself to become his advisor, or even Regent. Then you can seize power without any problem...

And remember, your excuse for coming in with Geltic was that he was distraught and said he needed to speak to the king, and asked you to help him find him.

No. 315626 ID: c2c011

Because the elf knows our patsy has been hexxed. And we can't just kill the elf without killing the guard. There is also the slight chance that the king isn't dead yet and might make it if help arrives soon enough. Or we could be asked to give that help in the form of magical healing, which would reveal that we're not as awesome magicians as we say, which is the whole reason why we're killing the king.

So to make the plan work everyone in the room has to die.

not an hour passed before I was summoned from my chambers.

it's seems Prince Galathas desires my aid with solving mystery behind some recent horrible regecide

Two of his knights and the captian of the guard have escorted me to the scene of the crime

after a show of confusion murmuring and poorly guessed explanations the Prince turns to me

Galathas: "tell me wizard, what do your arcane eyes make of all this?"
No. 326705 ID: 4f4447

Tell them something like 'I see murder, and little else, but this can be fixed'.

say that you need certain spell components or a focus for an advanced spell such as peering into the past. Ask for someone to retrieve some mundane items that will take a few minutes, then ask for everything that is known about the killings, and if anyone else is working on it. The more we know, the easier to lie.
No. 326856 ID: c71597

For now, tell them you'll need several minutes to examine the corpses.

After a while, come out and tell them the following story: The elf possessed Geltic and made him kill the king. He then murdered the guard because he'd witnessed it. Geltic's possession wore off, and they killed each other.
No. 326885 ID: e3f578

Yeah, just tell him arcane magics only work well for offense and defense, maybe some mundane actions like moving items. There's no such things as forensics spells or weird psychic crime spells like Divination or some shit. Tell him you're basically smart enough to do some basic detective work but an experienced detective has more chance to figure out the truth than you. Fortunately, there shouldn't be a way for him to detect your involvement since most of your shit was pulled off with mind control magic (and your telekinesis sword swing at the end, but this scene is all messed up to accurately guess that) and unless he has a way to detect mind control magics, no problem.

You can admit your not an all-knowing wizard, no one expects you to be that (unless you admitted your a god-like wizard with unmatched and unimaginable power then holy fuck you're retarded). Just an adviser and being a generally powerful wizard, which you sorta are since you pulled this off. You're trained in telekinesis but you just need to be creative and wise enough and have the proper mana to do the creative spells you come up with. You know, in all honesty, I forgot why you were so damned worried about this coming war, you have enough mana to mind control and do some razzle dazzle, your charade could have lasted.

I explain to the them what "arcane compenents" I will need to solve this murder.

the Prince dispatches a servant to collect the materials, in the meantime I ask the Captian for more details.

Captian: "whoever did this had a great deal'o skill AN power. judgin by the devestat'n swings and the ability to vanish so quickly after killin four armed men.
If you ask me I reckon this to be the work of some sort of demon!"

The two knights nod in agreement with Captian Rubelt's statement
Prince Galathas on the other hand seems less then impressed by this explanation.

Lellonar: "has anything been moved?"

Captian: "no sir"

Lellonar: "good, I shall examine the bodies"

I put on a show of examining the bodies, find nothing I didn't already know.

You are merely a master wizard of arcane knowledge and practice. There's no such thing as a spell to detect someone's specific knowledge and experiences and magic power of either dark or light elements is not measured in quantity or weird detectable radiation, it is but mere knowledge. Magic is an art studied, like science, it is not gained through magic rays, genetics or other crazy whatnots.

Basically, say trying to detect power levels is a thing of fiction. A motherfucker could have a magic skill of 10 or over 9000 you can't fucking tell because it's skill and this shit ain't got units of measurement. Bitches just got to have rituals written down somewhere or in their head to summon the demon. Then who cares, say you can't sense powerful summons either, like a technique hasn't been invented yet or it's just as impossible.
No. 327455 ID: c71597

There are ways to hide ones magical signature, not a field in which you have great expertise since you're more combat oriented. Or magical artifacts that can duplicate the effect and maintain it for far longer.

Or the magician could have simply found a stealthy way to insert the demon into the palace without triggering your magical detection devices. Could even be that the demon had taken possession of one of the people in the room and once here reassumed its own shape and then possessed someone else and wandered off again. The possibilities of what a twisted but intelligent mind can come up with to get into some place using magic is almost infinite.

I should have you executed for incompetence, but as a fair King I'll give you one chance at redemption.

Ok, so we need a practioner of the dark arts. Or atleast someone looking enough like it. Preferably far away, and preferably the cleric should perish in the attempt as well.

Lets go to the study and look at maps as well as a few history books and religious books. Find some legend or something about a place with a dark and nasty history, then we go there, try to find some practioner of the dark arts and cut off their head. If no dark and evil wizard is found then we just cut of someone evil looking dude's head, or maybe just a head. If it's far away enough then the head is likely to be decayed beyond recognition once you get back.

Then we need to create some "evil cult" evidence, kill some more people who we blame are cultists (fry their bodies) and return with the head of their "leader", in this case the one with most "evil aura" surronding him.
Might as well make this "quest" as long as possible.

another choice is to use the little you know to actualy follow trhu real investigations of cultists, while trainning what you can in cleric magic. you will use the excuse that you want to learn why you failed, so you will start from ground zero with the cleric as a teacher.

having sucess at that part, you must find a way to blame the summoning of demons/the death of them to a party foreign to the country, wich will be your excuse for the failure in its detection.

Run FAR off, since when you fail to return and they find your apparent corpse they'll send in the army to clear this forest out with extreme prejudice.

The prince wants "this summoner's head". The powerful guy we killed was labelled as "summoner". Victory.

If we're gonna put down a fake corpse, better make sure it's a NEW corpse. Otherwise a simple headcount would call suspicion on it being yours.

I think it would be best if we used the female cultist for this.

Tell the priest to occupy the incoming wench while you grab the sword one of them dropped in their haste to run away and cut him down with it. Then finish the one you just stunned and then it's time to decapitate the wench as well. Using mind magic to make her confess to something can backfire on you, better to have the priest's story of your awesome skill in battle and your bravery.

Check if the priest is still alive, if he is then tie up his wounds. Then cut off the head of the summoner, tie it to your belt and then hoist the priest up on your back and start making your way back home. Slice the throat of the remaining cultist while you're at it.

Well fuck, we're going to need to drag the corpse back anyway. And possibly the surviving cultist to act as a witness of how awesome we were in the fight.

Ok, first things first. Get the head off the summoner, then cut off his clothes to use as bindings for the cultist and to strap Partheon's corpse to her. Then it's time to get her up and get moving away from here.

Send him your location and the following:

Then put a sword through your coat as if you were wearing it, cover one of the stab holes with blood as if you were on top of it and bleeding out, charm that female cultist, make her take you to her camp, make her give it to somebody and say she took it off some dead wizard then return to you, and finally flee this land with your new minion never to return.
No. 330546 ID: c71597

His opinion might not change that much, but you will probably gain a bit more respect from other important members of the court. Which would be helpful to you and keep the prince from just having you killed, atleast if you can gain allies in the royal guards, and maybe point out that the prince has been acting a bit irrational since the king died, sending out untrained priests on highly dangerous missions and all that. Get enough support and maybe you can do regicide part 2 and possibly become the ruler after this one, or atleast decide who becomes the next ruler.

Which means you're going to have to return, so bundle up the summoner's head in his clothes, then sling the priest's corpse over your shoulder (this is to show your piety and respect for your fellow men, rather than leave him to be desecrated by the enemy you take his corpse along with you) and possibly kill the last female cultist. Yeah probably better to do that, she would only be trouble anyway.
No. 330551 ID: 0d7a83

You want to say something like this, but you need to beef it up a bit. Leave some cryptic warning that the threat is much greater than you thought and that some ancient evil has awoken so you must try to stop it etc etc.

Pose Partheon's body in a respectable funerary position, then continue after the cultist. We must battle onward. If we gain enough respect in court, and accomplish all the bullshit tasks the prince assigns us, he won't DARE try to harm us, as we'd have the loyalty of the people, and he'd be a bratty prince.
No. 330707 ID: 07416a

Set up a controlled longterm telekinesis spell to carry the bodies of the female cultist and the priest, then retreat as quickly as possible. Also distribute a few scorch marks and scatter blood so the battle looks much larger than it was.

Let's pretend to be a hero. This seems like it is difficult, but for the most part any problems will be obvious. Fleeing would still be sort of suspect, and we could have enemies after us in the shadows instead of in our faces.

better to interrogate whoever looks alive to kill them later. also do they have any strange possessions? a map could do, just scribble a path to the castle and you could have a justifiable excuse to either go there or blame who was there.
