>Arcanitech is the massive conglomerate of magical technology companies that popped up in the years following Paraply's initial bid for world conquest. Once Paraply was shut down for their power mongering, Ignometics had obtained a monopoly, and was broken down into subcompanies by government anti-trust laws. After Vresch's hostile takeover, whatever was left of the various companies rejoined into the group Arcanitech. They seem to have no clear goal.

Alright! First things first. Vresch gave me 25 luxury tickets before I left, so first thing I do is make a beeline for a barbershop. It doesn't take very long to find one, and one luxury ticket later, my hair is looking much cleaner.

Next stop on the list is a hat shop! It was run by a hobgoblin. I'd never met a hobgoblin before. He was a friendly sort of fellow. This hat cost me two luxury tickets. Possibly a rip off, but I have no idea how much things cost here, or even if overcharging me would serve a purpose. Maybe hats just cost two tickets?

Something I've noticed in my wanderings. There aren't any mega-marts or anything. Just hundreds and hundreds of specialty shops. If I were to take a guess, I'd say its probably to boost the total number of available jobs... but that's just a guess.

Last stop on the list is Arcanitech headquarters, and after this, the Sorcerer's Guild. The streets all seem to be sparsely crowded at all times of the day, no matter where I am. This particular street has much shorter buildings than the rest of the city. I think this part of Neotis must have been a part of an older city, and Neotis simply subsumed it. It doesn't take long to find the old Ignometics building, but... it... doesn't look very safe... at all.

...Well, in we go.

"Uhhh, hello!" I say.

The secretary looks up from her paper. "Oh! I'm sorry, I did not see you there. What do you need, madam? Having trouble with product installation? Did you need a runecraft?"

...She speaks very quickly. "W-well, no. I need to see Mister, uhhh, Jay Henderson."

"Do you have an appointment?"

No. 43292 ID: 904da4

Summon Owlbear. Maul Secretary to death. Proceed.

Or failing that, politely inquire as to when it would be possible to set up an appointment with Mr. Henderson. Judging from the state of things in here, it can't be too long. Its not like there's some big hurry, either.

That's just the tail-end of the word IGNOMETICS.

>Do we have something on our person for the purpose of convincing people we're important?
That would be amazingly useful, but anything I had for such a purpose would undoubtedly connect me to Rastin somehow. So, sadly, I'll need to somehow do all this on my own merits.

Although, Vresch said he'd help somehow, but I honestly have no idea what he means by that...

>Claim we came on behalf of Rastin
While that would probably work, it'd connect me to the troll pretty strongly. Not sure I want to do that.
>I doubt we have any way to verify this. We'll probably be laughed out of the building.
Also that.

>Ask to arrange an appointment as soon as possible
"Umm... Could I arrange an appointment to see him?"

"Certainly." She sets down whatever her report is and wheels her chair over to the computer. "Name?"

"Ah, Coralina Madison."

"Reason for your appointment?"

...There's all sorts of things I could say here. I should probably establish some sort of motive for why I'm going to be visiting all these leaders. How should I respond?
No. 43307 ID: 962d6b

hrm, how about a reporter? Are there any newspapers or anything? Just say you'd like to interview him on the group's views and beliefs.

Reporter angle could work well in the long run if we get a big following.

You were hoping they would have a way to fix that seal over your eye.

"Oh, so you're from Bleeding Hearts then. I'll put you in for thursday afternoon. Does 4pm sound good?"

Three days? Oh bugger.

Vresch said he'd help us, right?

See if he somehow slipped us in for a preemptive appointment. Just act like you're a little absentminded. 'Did I already have an appointment registered? I actually forget. Been all over, see...'

Sounds good to me; we'll probably have plenty to do before then anyway.

Now... where else were we going?

Oh, that is a good finishing touch. Now that they actually think Coralina's a reporting (Bleeding Hearts? Really?), if they also think we'd paint them in a positive light (and thus garner positive publicity), they might be more forthcoming with info.

Alright, I take the tramline to 440, and... huh. As I step off the tram's elevator, I see a large crowd is gathered at the base of the Sorcerer's Guild tower.

Should I investigate, or just try and avoid trouble? I could still go somewhere else, there are a lot of groups.

While you're out, it might help to see if you can pick up a newspaper, since they apparently do exist after all. Even if you don't have time to read it now, it's an easy source of information, both for your cover story and maybe even for the research you're doing.

I don't see any violence, just a mass of people with picket signs. I ask someone on the edge what's going on. A teenage boy answers.

"Lady, haven't you heard? ...Oh, duh, if you did you wouldn't be asking. Well, these damn sorcerers have been teaching kids how to use magic, and haven't given them any control! One kid died in his own apartment after setting it on fire last week, and just this morning some kid blew up a buncha his friends by mistake! Teaching people magic is fine and all, but they're just committing secondary homicide! This just can't stand! They need to take responsibility!"

His shirt has a patch on it, but its blank. I'm not sure what significance that has, but it looks weird.

>Visit Remi!

Hrm, as a "reporter" you have a duty to investigate further, and of course get both sides.

Ask about the patch. I don't think there's any harm to people knowing you're new to the city.
No. 43402 ID: 904da4


Should you decide to garner backing from the Sorceror's Guild, you could use this as a way to get the rest of the citizens of Neotis on your side to be more amenable to your future rule. In "reforming" the Sorceror's Guild to be more responsible and cautious in their teachings, you might mollify the civilian population.

Additionally, this is good in another way. It means we won't have to jump through goddamn hoops to learn a bit more about magic, if they're willing to teach it to a bunch of kids too stupid to not practice potentially dangerous magic in their own homes.

Its been at least 3 years, yeah. I met some big group hiding out in a walmart around then. I didn't stay long. I kinda liked living on my own. Solitude is nice, yanno? People tend to muck it up.

But I'm going to have to re-adapt to all this city stuff, since I know I'd do a better job than Rastin. Heck, if I search long enough, maybe I can even find someone to replace me.

I want to know why the front row consists for freaking elves and valkyries. Shouldn't the tall people be in back? Ugh. This is DUMB.

>show us what you see once you are up front.
Right, the matter at hand. There seems to be a small cleared out area in the middle. Some kid is there, alternating between kicking the door, shouting at the door, and riling up the crowd.

This entire district is covered in graffiti. Murals, posters, paintings. Most of the people here have piercings, tattoos, skimpy clothing. There look to be a roughly even mix of brothels and crafts stores.

This building here looks like a good place to ask for Naveen, seeing as her face is plastered on the wall, and the FR symbol is on the door. Its a strange symbol - you look at it one way, you see a fox in a trenchcoat. Another way, its a man in a wig. It took me a minute to see the wig man.

I watch them play out the rest of their game. Rastin is very erratic. He seems to lean towards aggressive, but sometimes does things for reasons I don't really understand.

Roselle plays a slow and steady sort of game. She takes her time, sets up her position, then goes on the offensive.

Rastin loses in short order.

I'm playing Roselle, not Rastin.

I decide to play aggressively, and try to take her out before she can get a good position set up.

Turns out the purple deck is a slower deck. By trying to start aggressively, I weakened my late game position, and just don't have the early power I need to win. We play three games, and I win none of them.

Speaking of actions potentially causing risk, I've been thinking about what sort of summoned armor might provide the best protection and versatility. Some key points I've noticed:

1. Your summons seem to be mainly limited by your imagination and a general mass limit.
2. Summoned creatures can have at least rudimentary intelligence of their own.
3. Even if they look like normal creatures, summons do not have to have physiologies that render them vulnerable to poisons and drugs.
4. For reasons obvious enough that I'm sure you have no need of an explanation, any summons we suggest should be easy to draw.

I suggest starting with a big suit of muscles, chitin plates, and eyes. You'll be blind, so there's no reason not to cover all of your head completely, with a bone grill for breathing through. Give it 2 solid arms of it's own in addition to the hollow arms that fit over yours, and maybe a few tentacles with blades or claws on the end. If your armor looks creepy, you might be be able to scare people off without fighting. If someone's encroaching on your personal space, add spikes.
No. 54784 ID: 904da4

Y'know, I've been wondering. You told us in the beginning that you are unable to summon anything beyond a certain mass, but that you aren't sure what that mass is. You need to test this. Additionally, you need to train your abilities. Perhaps practice summoning defensive objects (such as steel walls) on reaction. These most recent visits have me quite nervous about your wellbeing.

The whole idea of creating weapons and armor for Coralina to fight with is just no good. She's had no training with moving or using them. After all, it's not like she can't just conjure a cage or something similar around any aggressor.
No. 54787 ID: 192956

We also need to have a goal for a creature to summon. I suggest we make it our goal to learn at least enough to summon a Tarrasque. I mean how many summoners can claim they summon the destructive force of godzilla in a CR 30 package.

How does this look? The fibers hold the chitinous plates together, and I can switch which eye I am mindlinked to at almost anytime, so they aren't too much of a weak point. I wasn't sure where to put the spare arms, so I used tentacles instead. The tentacles can have blades or hands on the ends as needed.

>1. Your summons seem to be mainly limited by your imagination and a general mass limit.

>2. Summoned creatures can have at least rudimentary intelligence of their own.
No, they don't. They have a direct telepathic link to me, and everything they do is done by me thinking about it. They have no intelligence of their own.

>3. Even if they look like normal creatures, summons do not have to have physiologies that render them vulnerable to poisons and drugs.

Cora was manhandled because Naveen caught her off guard. Naveen managed to hold her down and manhandle her and all that because she is, get this, physically stronger than Coralina is. Cora, initially, did not think Naveen was a threat, nor did she want to hurt Naveen at any point. Well, she entertained the idea, but her logic said that it was a dumb thought.

Cora specifically said she didn't want it here: >>51190
Cora tried to get Naveen off of her here: >>51207
Cora ended up resorting to summoning a gorilla in a tuxedo to get her off here: >>51262

Cora resisted. Had she known she was going to be raped when she walked in, Naveen never would have pinned her. Just because Cora knows how to fight doesn't mean she's all that physically strong. She's a squishy sorceress.

I dig the new battle form. Considering how well it turned out, maybe we should come up with some others. A spider-suit for mobility and optional poisoning? Or a proxy we could send so as to avoid getting into trouble in the first place.

Alternately, since all of this could be taken from Cora if a fight goes badly, maybe she should hit the gym instead. It's no wonder she's a squishy sorceress if Mr. Bananas has done all the heavy lifting for the last five years.

>How would one go about learning how to improve their summons?
It takes... time. And practice. Lots of practice. Trust me, I've improved a lot in these 6 years. The chart here represents roughly the biggest things I could summon at given times. The reason I can't give you an exact amount for the largest thing I can summon is because I don't have any way to measure, and it depends on how tired I am. I can summon bigger things while I'm refreshed and have a clear mind.

>Make sure your armor has some eyes facing backward, upward, and downward.
There were eyes in the back, yes.

>Unless you're great at avoidance I'd suggest bulking up as much as possible.
I'm one of them dexterity based dodgy types, yes. Besides, that is already as bulked up as I can get it. I packed as much extra mass into the density of the chitinous plates as possible.
