How do they get any appreciable quantities of trade goods through, then?

Yes. Exactly.
Mkay.

Gets VERY expensive very fast as you raise the stored volume.
Where's the general cut-off line for increased space? Basically, what's the largest thing commonly enchanted that way, and how much can it normally hold?

Still doesn't move past the most critical need: FOOD!
Not *yet* anyway.

She looks amused.
It might be at my cost, but it's still a step up from emotional exhaustion. Progress! Smile

She's still a bit stand offish but has managed to relax somewhat.

If you'd like to just chat about something on the side, a bit give me some topics and I'll tell you how they turned out.
Well, I'd avoid any stressfull topics, like the demon realm's or the world's politics, government business, and so on.

Instead, the first general topic will be the beach-visit today. Mostly what ideas I had for it (lazing about in the sun, some swimming, maybe some ball games, exploring the island a bit and see if we find anything interesting, and towards the evening a beach-barbecue to round things out) and whether she can think of anything interesting to add.

The second general topic will be magic. I'm *really* looking forward to learning it (who in their right fucking mind wouldn't) so I'm kind of interested on getting her take on the various types of magic, especially on Fire, Darkness and Chaos given that they're the three I'd probably have the most access to in regards to learning material. I heard she spent a lot on time on those, so I figure it's something she enjoys, and I'd like to hear about the topic from an enthusiast, before my interest has a chance to get killed by the reality of slow studying and all that.

You find him being given a massage by some of the palace staff. Those Ninja maids got skills.
Okay, sneaking, massage, stealth... I'm getting really curious what else they can do. Probably horrifically murder someone with a feather duster, and the like.

"Ah, greetings awe inspiring one. Lie down and let the servants perform their arts. How are you doing today? Well sexed I see, but beyond that, inquiring minds must know."
"Good morning, sharp tongued one," I reply cheerfully without missing a beat while I take him up on the offer, stripping down to get a massage as well. "I'm quite well; still getting used to everything, but I definitely enjoy the perks.
"However," I continue more seriously, "I also try to take the responsibilities that come with those perks seriously, and get a grasp on things, which is why I'm here. From what you told me during breakfast yesterday, the previous emperor wasn't a big fan of more subtle ways of problem-solving and the angels have won the propaganda war pretty much unopposed, but I was hoping you could give me a bit more details about where we really stand on the covert front. Any issues that need to be addressed, but also any strength that would be worth shoring up; that sort of thing."

Well, if he's coming to the meeting as well I'll have a chance to form my own opinion, but forewarned is forearmed. Still, if by some unlikely and utterly unexpected twist of fate, their cousin the current clan head should find himself removed from his position, would their uncle accept it back? Do they know if he would still be willing to do the job?

Oh, he says that he finds the best way to do it is to simply have some fun blowing things up. Wink

... sounds worth trying. And since we're already at the artillery range ... err, the Emperor's training hall ... we can get right on that.

Now. Target. Target. Well, that rock will do. It looks solid enough and far enough away. I have a sinking suspicion that if I should try to overthink this, it'll just go wrong anyway.

Oh, and that I probably shouldn't start chanting any of Dark Schneider's or Lina Inverse's spells, just to stay on the safe side. I stretch out my hand, imagine there's an invisible line between it and the boulder, and start to imagine flames licking and searing their way through the air, along that line, and at the impromptu target.

Sun, sand, surf, rum-drinks and the locals will do anything for coin.

Sounds appealing. I could probably get a good Mojito there too ^^.

Incidentally, are the seas around them somewhat normal, or are there remnants of horribly chaos-mutated wildlife on the prowl to try and eat whatever enters their realm?

Oh, he's very interested... though if you'd allow it, he'd like to send a letter to his kin to tell them he's still alive. It has been some time since he last wrote and they must be terribly worried.

"Impress us first. Then you'll be able to write about how you cunningly made the best of the predicament and managed to turn the situation to your advantage."

That should be a proper bit of motivation, and a bit of stick in addition to the carrot.

Honestly though even on a normal one you can carry a great deal.

Studying? She laughs and points out as demons you're not well suited to magery. You need to learn to do it by experience and intent! Feel the fire of your blood! The passion, the rage! Embrace your aggressive feelings! Let the hate flow through you.

Cooking we'd do ourselves; it's more meant to be fun rather than about the meal itself. Though if necessary I should know enough to at least produce something edible.
Plus, there's always the option of just raiding the kitchen when we come back.

Well, training, then.

I take it rather than carefully lighting candles or the like, said training will likely consist of blowing stuff up?

Yep. Many skills.
I wonder if those skills also extend to the bedroom...
Though it also sounds like I should have a talk with one in general; find out exactly what those maids can do, and whether their skills and talents are under-utilized.

By the way; is the demon maid waking and otherwise serving me always the same?

"Yes. So have you fucked the help yet?" he chuckles, "I keep trying but they won't give me the time of day..."

The maid gives him a little thump. "Language, m'lord!"

"Yes, yes... I'll be a good... oh yes, that's the spot right there..."
"First time one woke me up, I immediately asked her to join me in bed," I admitted shamelessly, while waiting for another maid to start giving me the same massage-treatment. "She declined, saying that it would be unprofessional. That a running theme?"

Taking a deep breath, I can't help but bang my head against the headrest a few times, then punctuate my sentiment with a loud exclamation of, "Fuckshit!"

"Alright," I continue after a moment to calm down. "First things first. Can you give me a brief run-down of the drivel the angels feed the mortals? Besides the obvious 'demons are evil because they rape and eat you' stuff. Chances are if I understand them right, the angels won't just limit themselves to that, but also use the opportunity to try and tell the mortals how to lead their lives, and I'd like to know what we're dealing with in that regard.
Second, you said 'cults'; so I take it our covert angle has certain religious or spiritual connotations? How are things with groups of a shady but secular nature, though? Thieves', smugglers' and assassins' guilds, and the like?"

Not long after you get over your initial shock, the door opens up and two red skinned female demons enter.

As I eat I ask the general what's happened with him since I went under and what the mood of the troops and what not? Just so I can have a clear picture of the situation.

As for the Duke, I get a better look at his ladies, JUST to see what they are, then I ask him if there's any new news from the clan leaders and how much longer I've got before meeting with all of them?

I also ask the duke and the princess what their opinions about whatever news he brings up if any.

... that was actually going to be what I tried next.

"Let's see," I say, narrowing my eyes as I settle on another target, and begin pacing, back and forth. Seething. The point seems to be to take my emotions, and use them, turning them into my weapons ... that's eerily familiar right there, and I can't rightly stop myself from what comes next.

"There is no peace, there is only passion.
Through passion I gain strength,
Through strength I gain power,
Through power I gain victory,
Through victory my chains are broken,
The Force shall set me free!"

I throw out my hand and trust my feelings.^^

(and the roll in the next post as usual, though given all indicators it's likely to be lousy this time)

Huge and yes...

So, has anyone made combat fishing an institution yet? Because that could be a fair way of getting more foodstuffs back here.

Interesting. Not entirely to my tastes then, but it definitely has potential. I tell him to go with something lighter and with a little more heat next time. After all, it wouldn't be fair to make a snap judgment on this ^^

How did the others enjoy it? (assuming it's not just the sisters and I as the Arachne is still sleeping off this morning's food orgy and the Lamia is still being a Book Golem).

As our Emperor and sworn master we will happily give our lives for you and serve you in all but that one, for as proper maids we will give ourselves to our masters mind body and soul, but our hearts are our own."
I see. Maybe in time, then.

The Duke looks over. "Why did you ever tell me that?"

"Because you are an asshole, m'lord."

"Yes, yes, there is that..."
I can't help but break out in laughter at that. "I like her sass."

"More they plant ideas about excessive rules and morals... about how you must deny ones passions and dedicate yourself to the 'Greater Good' and such rot. Bunch of Self-Denying sexually frustrated ponces..."
Just sex, or other pleasures and passions as well? Basically, trying to get an overall feel for them. Would be a comparison to the medieval christian church be accurate or at least close?

Somewhat. They tend to be less reliable though. There's something to be said about religious zeal...
Detached professionalism has its advantages, too. Though ideally both should be available.

So, how does forming cults or contacting those organizations work, generally?
And how active and strong are the other factions - angels, spirits, undead, and finally the mortals themselves - in that area?

You don't got it.

You let loose an impressive blast of energy but the feedback is AGONIZING. It feels like your brain is being cooked in your skull.

He stumble back and are caught by the Priest. "Easy boy! Easy!"

"Understandable, I'd have done the same thing, immortal or otherwise."

"Priorities. I like that."

"A small miracle I guess."

He chuckles.

As I eat I ask the general what's happened with him since I went under and what the mood of the troops and what not?  Just so I can have a clear picture of the situation.

"They're still smarting from the withdraw and are anxious to bust more skulls." he pauses, "We're orcs. It's our nature."

As for the Duke, I get a better look at his ladies, JUST to see what they are, then I ask him if there's any new news from the clan leaders and how much longer I've got before meeting with all of them?

Need to get pictures. Ask again later.

I also ask the duke and the princess what their opinions about whatever news he brings up if any.

Now that's kinda a strange non-question...

"Let's see," I say, narrowing my eyes as I settle on another target, and begin pacing, back and forth. Seething. The point seems to be to take my emotions, and use them, turning them into my weapons ... that's eerily familiar right there, and I can't rightly stop myself from what comes next.

"There is no peace, there is only passion.
Through passion I gain strength,
Through strength I gain power,
Through power I gain victory,
Through victory my chains are broken,

"Interesting speech, but you need to have focus as well as drive."

So, has anyone made combat fishing an institution yet? Because that could be a fair way of getting more foodstuffs back here.

Yes... but in general most dark world creatures tend to be hard to take down... they live deep and hit fast.

Soo ... basically, they're my people.

Heh.

Interesting. Not entirely to my tastes then, but it definitely has potential. I tell him to go with something lighter and with a little more heat next time. After all, it wouldn't be fair to make a snap judgment on this ^^

He has some ideas... though admits he'd need time to experiment. He also admit he's not used to cooking with high heat. Those peppers are expensive where he's from and they tend to favor different flavors because of it. Still, he's very hopeful that you enjoyed the meal and would be quite pleased to learn other ways of cooking.

Does he pass?

Please note, the food while relatively simple fare was absolutely delicious. Halflings clearly know what the hell they are doing.

How did the others enjoy it? (assuming it's not just the sisters and I as the Arachne is still sleeping off this morning's food orgy and the Lamia is still being a Book Golem).

Well, who did you invite?

Kelenas wrote:Alright.

Gotte admit I'm curious who she'll bring.

You'll see.

Though I'm afraid that this might annoy my handmaidens, given that this was meant to be for the three of us to spend time together. Guess I'll have to find a way to make it up to them.

True...

Somehow I can't shake the impression that the Mythbusters would feel very much at home here. 'When in doubt; C4.' or 'Jamie wants a big boom!'

Heh.

Sure, why not? Roll is below the post.

Earth shattering KABOOM.

Wow; that's pretty impressive.

Generally from the sound of it, if they demons are Sith they're Jedi... with all the stiffness that implies.

Detached professionalism has its advantages, too. Though ideally both should be available.

"A lot of those groups went to ground and the previous emperor was nothing if not a hindrance to relations with them... sadly the Vampires tend to have a strong pull with such groups as a rule and under his gross misconduct a number switched over."

So, how does forming cults or contacting those organizations work, generally?

Power in exchange for loyalty... and even the chance to become a demon.

And how active and strong are the other factions - angels, spirits, undead, and finally the mortals themselves - in that area?

The angels and spirits normally tend to have official sanction in most of the "Light" nations up to and involving a place in state religious. The Undead mostly deal with assassins and the more organized dark organizations. Demons due to their dark and chaotic nature tend to be mostly cults, gangs, rebels and other disorganized groups.

Frankly from the sound of things... You're pretty much the patron lord of "Chaos" in the Warhammer Sense.

I kinda gathered as much. I can definitely see Khorne, Slaanesh (and how!) as well as Tzeench, but (thankfully!) fairly little Nurgle. That's probably more the undead's shtick.

Well, they're among the largest. You're going to have to deal with the Dark Elves who are always a pain in the ass, even on a good day. The Red Oni clan while subordinate members of the Oni family are reasonably powerful. The Humanoid clans might be an issue. Expect the Succubus Queen to try and seduce you.

Yeah. The Priest is here.

He sensed your power.

(or rather the GM got mixed up)

(Nah, it's a legit reason. ^^)

I look appropriately surprised.

"Considering the bureaucratic SNAFU ... err, Situation Normal All-Fucked Up ... that my predecessor's death has no doubt caused, I'm surprised to see you without an appointment," I pause for a bit, still wincing at the headache. "Or more surprised than I should be. I just remembered you've probably had to do this a few times already. Delegation?"

Anyway, since he's hear I'll take the chance to pick his brain and fine-tune my understanding of the basics of blowing things up.

And maybe ...

... hmm.

It's been a bit of darkness but mostly fiery boom so far, hasn't it?

Maybe I need to try something a bit different.

"I take all my pain, all my embarrassments and humiliations," I mutter as I proceed to do just that, as well as horribly improv misquote again. This time I focus, though. Focus on making my emotions into diamond hard tips that _pierce_. "And crush them in my hand. And when I open it, I find a diamond. My diamond is my rage."

I fling a hand forward with a snarl, _willing_ spears of darkness to leap out of my shadow and at the nearest practice target.

"I have diamonds in my eyes."

(roll after. tempting fate)

Regardless of how that turns out ...

"Now, if the lovely maid sure to have appeared right behind me on my uttering of these words would be as kind as to provide a mug of tea or similar concoction, I would be most obliged."

Most of the hostile sea life are Dark World creatures that were attracted by the Dark Energy.

I get the feeling we're talking something distinct from the Demon Realm. Specify further?

Yes sire...

Hey, I've hired cooks on the back of a oneshot performance before. It did not turn out to be a sound business decision or for the best.

Meanwhile, I explain to the Halfing the concept of the hamburger, the club sandwich, and the pizza.

Well, the Laima eats a goodly amount but is demure about it. Good table manners that one...

I do expect them to give feedback other than just eating, you know. It's important. After all, if this goes through the Halfing'll be providing food appropriate for all our tastes, and using trial and error to figure those out isn't necessarily efficient.

The Arache has none on the other hand but doesn't totally lose it this time. Though she does look at the Halfling like he was a self-propelled rump roast.

"And this is why cooks are important, my dear," I tell her. "You'll make sure nothing untoward happens to your source of tasty treats, won't you?"

She's already very enthusiastic. The idea shouldn't be very difficult to grasp at all.

I groan in appreciation.

Okay, they're not QUITE that bad most of the time but its still stifling.

There's a reason angels fall.
I didn't expect it to. What I meant is that we could look into manipulating the mortal parts of the faith/religion/philosophy, and both radicalizing it while strengthening its influence over the populace. Basically, keep tightening the limits and regulations it places on the mortal populace, until said populace is fed up with it and either just stops adhering for the most part, or even throw it out entirely.
As unlikely as it might be, it would probably be more likely to be successful than trying to undo thousands of years of cultural indoctrination by the angels.

"We're rivals to put it politely. In a way they're just as stuffy and hidebound as the angels but instead of putting on airs of being holier than thou, they act like they're oh so important. Though even they recognize the pedigree of the Imperial Line."

I let out a sigh. "Guess it would've been to easy if we could somehow just ally with them against the Angels."

Mortals are always looking to ditch mortality. Who wouldn't.
True.

No longer than half a century.
Damn.

Even the undead kinda shy away from disease.
Yeah, but I take it they still have zombies and the like amongst their forces?

Heh.

That a good 'heh' or a bad one?

As long as we keep havingchances to bust skulls, we're happy.

I chuckle a bit, "There's a certain Zen to uncomplicated desires. Though I'm not sure when we'd march. Likely be a while."

Well, they're among the largest. You're going to have to deal with the Dark Elves who are always a pain in the ass, even on a good day. The Red Oni clan while subordinate members of the Oni family are reasonably powerful. The Humanoid clans might be an issue. Expect the Succubus Queen to try and seduce you.

DO YOU EVER!

It's VERY Good. Spicy and tasty meat dish.

"Would you mind explaining the significance of the position and what giving your true names means in this world while I eat? I haven't eaten since at least four hours before i arrived in this world.

They look at eachother.

"It means we are your personal bodyguards and servants. You will be our master in all things. By giving you our true names we're literally giving you the power of life and death over us."

"We're high class Red Oni commanders, undefeated in battle and skilled in all things political, military, and domestic."

Rieverre wrote:(Nah, it's a legit reason. ^^)

Okay. Remind me who's with you?

I look appropriately surprised.

"Considering the bureaucratic SNAFU ... err, Situation Normal All-Fucked Up ... that my predecessor's death has no doubt caused, I'm surprised to see you without an appointment," I pause for a bit, still wincing at the headache. "Or more surprised than I should be. I just remembered you've probably had to do this a few times already. Delegation?"

"I've chosen to remain out of politics. As is, what I am and what I do ensures the survival of the royal line. As you said, this is a 'Snafu'."

Anyway, since he's hear I'll take the chance to pick his brain and fine-tune my understanding of the basics of blowing things up.

And maybe ...

... hmm.

It's been a bit of darkness but mostly fiery boom so far, hasn't it?

Maybe I need to try something a bit different.

"I take all my pain, all my embarrassments and humiliations," I mutter as I proceed to do just that, as well as horribly improv misquote again. This time I focus, though. Focus on making my emotions into diamond hard tips that _pierce_. "And crush them in my hand. And when I open it, I find a diamond. My diamond is my rage."

I fling a hand forward with a snarl, _willing_ spears of darkness to leap out of my shadow and at the nearest practice target.

"I have diamonds in my eyes."

(roll after. tempting fate)

You have a splitting heachache.

And the spear hits the target and... well... explodes.

Regardless of how that turns out ...

"Now, if the lovely maid sure to have appeared right behind me on my uttering of these words would be as kind as to provide a mug of tea or similar concoction, I would be most obliged."

You turn around to see a Maid filling a delicate tea cup.

"One lump or two master, and do you take cream or milk?"

I get the feeling we're talking something distinct from the Demon Realm. Specify further?

"Noone told you about the 5 worlds?"


Hey, I've hired cooks on the back of a oneshot performance before. It did not turn out to be a sound business decision or for the best.

"Ah, common sense that... my mistake."


Meanwhile, I explain to the Halfing the concept of the hamburger, the club sandwich, and the pizza.

You swear his eyes are glowing.

"You do of course realize, sire, that I will have to experiment?"

If you let him, an hour later you're almost hit with a mountain of burgers, Pizzas, and sandwiches.

Some are good, some are bad, some are just okay, some have combinations that make you question his sanity, others are just fucking awesome...

The lesson, do not give a Halfling a culinary challenge. It ends in tears and food.

I do expect them to give feedback other than just eating, you know. It's important. After all, if this goes through the Halfing'll be providing food appropriate for all our tastes, and using trial and error to figure those out isn't necessarily efficient.

The Lamia takes notes.

"And this is why cooks are important, my dear," I tell her. "You'll make sure nothing untoward happens to your source of tasty treats, won't you?"

She's already very enthusiastic. The idea shouldn't be very difficult to grasp at all.

Nod! Nod! Can't talk, eating!

Kelenas wrote:Well, a romantic dinner for three with pies, then. Somewhat weird, but anything that makes my girls happy. Smile

Meat pies, desert pies, all of the pies!

Now I'm seriously contemplating to get some Kamina glasses, cape, and the like. Just to see the incredulous reaction from any heroes I might have to face later.

You are the Demon King... - Page 16 OYIffy8

So... kind of just an uncontroleld raw magic blast instead, rather than anything actually controlled, shaped and specific?

Yes. And a very effective one at that.

Awwwww.... *disappointed*

Meh. You're a Demon King. You got Hellfire.

I groan in appreciation.

Just don't ask for the Happy Ending, okay?

I didn't expect it to. What I meant is that we could look into manipulating the mortal parts of the faith/religion/philosophy, and both radicalizing it while strengthening its influence over the populace. Basically, keep tightening the limits and regulations it places on the mortal populace, until said populace is fed up with it and either just stops adhering for the most part, or even throw it out entirely.
As unlikely as it might be, it would probably be more likely to be successful than trying to undo thousands of years of cultural indoctrination by the angels.

Zealot groups like that pop up all the time. They normally are encouraged to commit suicide by demon.

"Which would apply to you or the Princess, but not to me due to being summoned. So, if I talk to them, they'll probably be polite on the surface, because they consider themselves 'above' petty rudeness or the like, but below that they'll likely be all sneering and superior in face of the conjured commoner, which would have serious negative impact on any negotiations or diplomacy. I can't send you or the High Priest because you're already busy with your respective duties, and I'm somewhat concerned about the Princess' temper if one of the Vampires throws a few jabs at her or her father."

"You are of the royal bloodline. They'd call you 'sired' rather than 'born' but you still meet the standard by their reckoning."

"As for their personalities... they're smug. Extremely smug."

I let out a sigh. "Guess it would've been to easy if we could somehow just ally with them against the Angels."

"Of course. Besides, they tend to have a standing feud with the spirits. Though to be honest we normally don't get along much too better."


Damn.

"What?"

Yeah, but I take it they still have zombies and the like amongst their forces?

"Animated corpses are not a fondness of disease."

Rank: Emperor

Handmaidens: The Red Oni Sisters
-Kasho: Two horned Red Oni. Elder Handmaiden.
-Haisoksu: One horned Red Oni. Younger Handmaiden

Harem:
Lamia Concubine: Archives clerk with some magical aptitude.
Arachne Concubine: Assassin and bane of food everywhere.

Contacts:
-Grand Princess of the Fire Dragon Clan (pending results of letter)

Pending Events:
- letters to the Grand Princess
- Webmail (Arachne sends letter of thanks to the Princess)
- clan meeting
- seaside vacation happy fun times

Okay. Remind me who's with you?

Just the Handmaidens.

"I've chosen to remain out of politics. As is, what I am and what I do ensures the survival of the royal line. As you said, this is a 'Snafu'."

"I'd have preferred if at some earlier point you'd told me 'oh, and incidentally, that lovely young lady who's glaring at you like she wants to gut you and string up the remains as holiday decorations is your future wife' but I think I understand your reasoning.

You have a splitting heachache.

And the spear hits the target and... well... explodes.

I need to find a way of doing this without the whole 'pain' part.

You turn around to see a Maid filling a delicate tea cup.

"One lump or two master, and do you take cream or milk?"

"Mug, dear. Not cup. Let's save the cups for times and places requiring a degree of propriety. And I take my tea plain. No sugar, no cream or milk."

"Noone told you about the 5 worlds?"

"Oh, I was told about the 5 worlds, but I'm afraid I still haven't pinned down all the names by which each may be called by. I assume by Dark Realm you mean the realm of the undead then? The fact they're aligned with Order put me off, given the islands' and the mutations' chaotic origins."

Meanwhile, I explain to the Halfing the concept of the hamburger, the club sandwich, and the pizza.

You swear his eyes are glowing.

"You do of course realize, sire, that I will have to experiment?"

If you let him, an hour later you're almost hit with a mountain of burgers, Pizzas, and sandwiches.

Some are good, some are bad, some are just okay, some have combinations that make you question his sanity, others are just fucking awesome...

The lesson, do not give a Halfling a culinary challenge. It ends in tears and food.

I count this as being a win, to be honest. After all, how else are you going to learn. Oh, yeah, and I make sure to point the good and the fucking awesome ones out and have the results of the experimentation recorded, so that the successes may be repeated in the future.

I mean, the Demon Realm might not take the world by storm by means of franchise eateries ... but I'm not discounting that as a possible course of action. Stranger things have happened.

Nod! Nod! Can't talk, eating!

Yes, and as she'll likely be eating this well for as long as she stays on, could she please try to pace herself and actually taste the flavors? Once _she_ knows what she likes most instead of just being overwhelmed by the onslaught, she'll be able to inform whoever is cooking so they can make more of it. Or make it better.

"How is the selection process run?" I watch for hesitance in answers, reluctance to make eye contact, nervous twitches and other signs of lying.
