Heh.

Yes. And a very effective one at that.
Well, I keep working on that, then. Probably control (aka 'specify how much I want to blow something up') first, then things like actually shaping magic for more specific spells later.

Meh. You're a Demon King. You got Hellfire.
True, but now I can't pull any scenes about choking someone with magic while lamenting their lack of faith. At least not for a while.

Just don't ask for the Happy Ending, okay?
Alright, I won't. (As much as I'd like to. Wink)

Zealot groups like that pop up all the time. They normally are encouraged to commit suicide by demon.
How feasible would it be to intentionally leave such groups alone, or even support and somewhat protect them (without their knowledge, of course), while specifically targeting more moderate voices and groups amongst the angels' religion?

"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."
"Alright, so it's not as bad as I thought. Guess that's something, at least."

"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."
"Kind of comparable to the feud between us and the angels?"

"What?"
"Already got a rough idea of how badly we're currently off when you said the previous emperor made all cults and the like rise up, but this drove it home even more." I take a few moments where I just quietly enjoy the maid's massage while thinking things over.

"Where would you focus your attention in regards to rebuilding our intelligence network?"

"Animated corpses are not a fondness of disease."
(OOC: Erm, who's talking with me here? I kinda though this was a discussion betweem player and GM, rather than characters?) No, but Nurgle doesn't represent just disease, he's also the closest thing to a death-related Chaos God, which is kinda the Undead's thing. Though, getting kinda off topic, so I'll just drop it.

Okay.

"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.

"Delicate issue. Was waiting for the right moment."

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

Time and effort.

"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."

She looks... offended by the very idea of tea in the mug.

"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."

"Ah. Right. I think there was a misconception. It's not mutations as much as it attracts all forms of nasties."

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.

So is he hired?

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.

You think that'll take a while to get through to her.

Mistake. And Nurgle is disease. Undead are an enemy ofChaose as Undead represent unchanging stasis and chaos chaotic change.

It's probably gonna take a while until I'll be ready to tackle more advanced magic in the form of actual spells, anyway.

Hence why I'm not asking. I'd rather not get swatted. Razz

"What were you thinking?"
"Pretty much as I said; that I'd be looked down upon due to being summoned into the Royal Family rather than born, and this tainting any potential diplomacy with them," I shrug. "I still don't expect any such diplomacy to be easy, but that's still better than being near impossible."

"It's been worse."
Okay, this I gotta hear.

"I'm working on reestablishing the cults. Will take some time though."
"Alright," I reply, pausing to groan once more in appreciation at the maid's skill, though it seems like the massage is nearing its end. "Thank you for answering my questions; you've given me quite a bit to think about. Are there any issues or topics you'd like to broach on your part?"

After waiting for the reply (and dealing with anything the Duke might actually bring up), I wait until the maid is done with her massage before slipping off the massage lounger, enjoying the relaxed way my body now feels, before turning towards the maid who gave me the massage.

"Thank you very much," I tell her sincerely, gently grasping her hands in mine to plant a kiss on them, "I haven't felt this relaxed in a long while, and I hope I can look forward to enjoying your skill again in the not too far future."

A small part of this might have been to make a good impression on the maid, but the vast majority was completely honest; I felt *great* after this massage.

Next step after talking with the Duke now is to seek out the General.

He's not being crass, not really, this is pure PRIDE in his work talking.

The Ogre cook suddenly looks thoughtful.

The Halfling looks over at him and you swear that if looks could kill you'd be scraping the Ogre off the walls. "Now listen here ye great ball of puss. Ye even think another bloody thought about sabotaging me cookin' and I'll makin' dog food out of yer giblets!"

Time and effort.

You find him splitting logs with a battle axe... and by logs I mean 2-3 foot across at 4-5 ft tall and by with a battle axe I mean with single strikes. And I don't always mean with the grain.

I pause and think for a moment. "That might actually give me some ideas, depending on how things are here. Tell me; what kind of drugs are there? Specifically, are there any that are highly addictive to humans, and could be produced by our alchemists, or grown in the lands of our allies in the mortal world?"

"Purification spells," he points out. "They make drug addictions difficult and magically addictive substances tend to lead to madness and psychosis."


I whistle, impressed, then catch myself. "Sorry, didn't mean to interrupt, but from my point of view this is pretty damn impressive."

"Thanks, laddie!"

The maids are probably going to assassinate you aren't they?  Twisted Evil 

I'll go out on a limb and assume I'm still not the worst offender they've had to deal with, or the most temperamental. ^^

Hey, halfling has to have his pride.

And you get a polite return letter from the Dragon Princess the next morning.

Shiny. I'll read it at breakfast. Unless I have something else penciled in for that, as it was yesterday, in which case read it before breakfast.

It's polite and to the point. And her handwriting is so good you could have it framed.

In general if you'd like to meet before the official clan meeting, she's open to the possibility.

I send a reply in the affirmative. I would very much appreciate having another point of view present. Looking at things from a new perspective can often mean the difference between making or breaking a negotiation, especially as the Grand Princess already acted with my best interests in mind when we first met. And as an aside I add that we have yet to have a discussion about the coffee.

Anyway, I'll inform the staff (ever-present ninja meido!) that she might be coming and have them prepare appropriate lodgings for a personal guest of high rank. That is, unless the dragons already have diplomatic apartments in the Place somewhere? Actually, no, get the staff to prepare something even then.

Sound advice, and given the randomness of some of these summonings it probably bears repeating.

Regardless, I think I'm done training for the day. I'll probably make it part of my daily routine tho, and set aside time for it. I'd like to be able to be a person of mass destruction without calling forth a killer headache as a result.

Good. I could use an extra information vector. Plus, I have yet to see her human-oid form, so that ought to be interesting. Anyway, I send a formal invitation which I get the help of the Younger Handmaiden to draft, appropriate wording and all.

Its more if they're not there you might die, or the overflow might kill them.
Awww... and here I thought they cared about me... Razz

"At least to the part about blowing things up, it seems, yeah. Kinda surprised me, to be honest; considering I have absolutely no experience with magic, I figured it'd take me quite a while to get anything done with it."

"Blowing things up is really all you need to prove your strength. The rest is fluff."
"I'd still prefer to learn as much as possible. I imagine there's a lot of spells and whatnot that will come in handy in various situations."
I grin.
"But I agree that there's most likely plenty of problems that can be solved by a big enough explosion."

He gets a rough overview as well.

"I think you would've liked it quite a bit. Nukes and similar weapons of mass destruction make open warfare between those nations with access to them incredibly risky, so most conflicts are kept 'under the table', so to speak. Assassinations, kidnapping of researchers, extracting defectors, funding rebels, and so on. Someone with your skills probably would have felt right at home."

"Oh... sounds fun!"
"I don't suppose we might be able to create some kind of similar situation amongst the Light-backed nations? Sow dissent amongst some of them, or parts of their population, to keep them busy, and force them to spend resources on such conflicts?"

I pause and think for a moment. "That might actually give me some ideas, depending on how things are here. Tell me; what kind of drugs are there? Specifically, are there any that are highly addictive to humans, and could be produced by our alchemists, or grown in the lands of our allies in the mortal world?"

"Purification spells," he points out. "They make drug addictions difficult and magically addictive substances tend to lead to madness and psychosis."
"Mh, that makes things more difficult of course, though I can think of some factors that might still make this a potentially interesting approach to pursue; simple habit-building might still get people addicted, if not as quickly or thoroughly, and depending on how difficult or draining the casting of purification spells is, might keep priests busy that could otherwise be used elsewhere. Though the final details are obviously left to you; just throwing some ideas out there."

I whistle, impressed, then catch myself. "Sorry, didn't mean to interrupt, but from my point of view this is pretty damn impressive."

"Thanks, laddie!"
"Reminds me that I should probably look into getting some combat training as well, not just learning how to blow things up by thinking at them hard. Though that's not why I'm here; if you have some time, I wanted to learn more about our military and its situation."
