Lovely how will that go?

She looks... pleased. Very pleased. "You will find her up to the job."

Several emperors have tried.

And I'm sure they met their end in a dragon's digestive track.

"Don't worry. You're immuned to posion. At least no demon emperor has ever suffered its effects... and they have tried. Often."

"Well there's one less thing to worry about, just a million others to go..."

Yep.

Good.

Okay.

Hows that go?

You're the DEMON EMPEROR.

So yes I can tank them or think of something other than melee?

"Well, that's something I don't have to worry about, at least. Still, the way I see it, the best course of action would be to accept whoever they try to set me up with. It should keep them happy for a while while they wait and see if the one they chose manages to get her hooks into me deep enough, and possibly even beyond that if I can manage a good enough balancing act.
It should also give an idea what they want based on whatever the girl will be trying to do, and possibly expose some previously unknown agents and/or allies they might have here."

I pause to pinch the bridge of my nose.

"I expect it's going to be a headache, though. I'd like to think I'm not that easily manipulated, but I'm a sucker for hot chicks. Thankfully, the Princess should be able to keep me in line if it comes down to it."
The progenitor of the Dragon Clans was the Black Dread Emperor Dragon. Black Dragons were a race of dragons seeped in dark magic who breathed black hellfire. Today's Fire Dragons are their closest decendents, but have lost their full dark power.
How'd that happen? Losing their full power, I mean?
As for the oath, the Black Dread swore that he and his line would serve the Demon Emperor loyally and without complaint, while the Emperor swore to ensure that he and his progeny lived as dragons should. The main part is that there is limited a keep what you kill clause with loot. If the dragons kill something or are directly involved, they have second pickings with 10% of all loot for their hoards.
I'm guessing the Demon Emperor retained the first pickings and a larger share of the loot, with the rest going to various other vassals and houses involved?
There are a number, but I'd put my focus into getting into the Onis' good grances for now though you can probably get the graces of several of the lesser beast clans easily considering your concubines.
"My Arachne Concubine has already asked as her Boon that I unite the Arachne and put her officially in charge, while unofficially leaving things to me. Any issues that are likely to arouse from this that I should know about?"
Heh.
Don't laugh! Razz
Hopefully they have statistics, though.
No, no she's not. Very busy, very distant.
Alright, putting this off until later, then; no need to piss off one of the important figures in my realm just out of curiosity.

Ah.

Being present to offer advice and information is currently one of the things I feel I need most from them.

While you don't dig up any nests you do come across a number of wandering imps... and blow them up.

Decent fun, bit more challenge... but lacks the same "MUHAHAHAHA!" as shooting fish in a barrel.

Likely for the best. I let the maid inevitably appearing behind me when I start to turn around that since we have guests now we might as well do a full breakfast tomorrow. Big table for all of my dependents and an invitation to both Ruby and Blue. Which is surely going to turn out horribly but will at least provide morning entertainment.

Then I have some tea, thank the other ninja-maid politely, and collapse into bed with my onis.

I made a mental note to show them I appreciated that somehow; maybe some sort of gift, though I'd have to find out what they'd like in that regard, first. Maybe during the dinner after returning from the trip.

I then turn towards the Lady Seneshall, waiting for Ruby-Eyes to introduce us. At least, that's what I think is the correct procedure here, if what trivia I remember about high-society manners is correct.
Once she has done so, I give the Seneshall either a handshake or -kiss, depending on how she seems to react.

I blink at that, "If I were still human, I'd likely beg enough spirits to give an entire flight of dragons liver failure, in a mad attempt to erase that image from my mind....not sure if I've changed my mind..."

"Of course."

Cue Burns 'excellent'

"Hm. Very well." she replies looking a bit pleased. "It serves me to keep you alive. So when do you wish to begin?"

I grin, "It warms my heart at your concern. I guess letting you see what I can do first and give me a summary of your opinions after that. Once you've seen my skill thus far we could have a spar to see how I compare, completely at your discretion of course. It'd do neither of us any real good if I haven't learned enough to be worth sparring with yet."

"The more actually think about it, the more I'm convinced this will somehow end in fire and screaming. So yes, certainly."

The Maid reappears moments later. "M'lord, m'lady princess wishes to bring a guest."

Assuming this is the same guest she wants to bring along on the trip ...

I give the maid a sleepy nod and briefly contemplate pulling her into the pile to use as a hug pillow.

"Tell her it's fine and please make the arrangements."

"And how does that work in this case? So far, I've only heard about this from the Duke, where he describes something similar being used to form cults, who receive power and possibly transformation into a Demon if they serve us."
He seems to think so. "On the same note the Princess has an open request to speak with you again. That said, so do most of the lords and ladies of the realm."
"The Grand Princess of the Dragon Clan, I'm guessing?"
Honestly, one of the things I couldn't help but wonder about is how people here got by just using titles. I could see it working fine when it comes to unique individuals or positions, but I couldn't help but wonder if it didn't cause misunderstandings, or necessitate expanded explanations in situations where there were multiple people with the same or similar titles.
"She is impressive for one so young."
No doubt about that, heh.
Having people in the know is always a good thing.
Definitely.
Heheheheh.
What's so funny?
She accepts it with good cheer. "M'lord."
"I'll probably ask to speak with you about various matters in the near future, trying to get a better grasp on the responsibilities of my new position, but for now I hope you'll just enjoy the day with us."

I briefly think about also asking her some personal questions, like her friendship with Ruby-Eyes, but I figure doing so while standing around in the palace, rather than maybe asking while sitting on a nice beach, enjoying the sun, and sipping some pina colada, would be a bit of a dumb move on my part.

"Well, then; shall we go on our little vacation?"

OOC: So had a recent chat with Psyckosama invited me over to this and mentioned that this has been a little less hectic for him, so figure I try throwing my hat into the ring.

Oh lord, what the heck?!
I feel sick combined with the worse headaches ever.  Someone shoot me! @_@

Which finally ends with impact against hard stone floor.  It was to my relief that the headache, dizziness, and nausea all gradually faded away and suppressing the urge to vomit.  Perhaps a good thing as I finally noticed the two unnerving beings in front of me.  A demonic look pig and woman stood before me.  

Well, this can't be good.  Even if the demonic woman has very ample display of her 'endowed assets'.  Better not stare.

It was moment before any words came to my mouth, as I just steel my nerves and try to analyze the situation I'm in.  They both are standing before me as if expecting me.  "Uh... Why am I here?  I take it that I've been summoned," I ask the most obvious question that comes to me with the most deduced conclusion I came to.

"Thank you." I say with a nod then i pause. "Is that pose personal preference, bucking for a promotion or trained into you?"

The next morning everyone is there... plus one.

She seems to be chatting with the princess who seems much more relaxed around her.

As you reorient yourself your vision starts to clear.

The pig like one laughs and looks down at you with a vicious smile. "Huh. Well, this one's got balls that's for sure. And here I was hoping to give him a scare."

"Well," a voice from behind you comments, "He seems to have survived the summoning process unharmed. Do not worry, all will be made clear soon."

The woman frowns and looks over. "Can we throw this one back in favor of a more physically impressive specimen?"

"No."

You actually manage to not to too horrible, and at one point actually impress her.

By now I am fairly certain that it would be easier and quicker to simply name those individuals - particularly girls/women - that *aren't* smoking hot.

I wonder if it's something in the air...?

Mh... I thought we were going via portal to one of the islands in the Chaos Sea, or whatever it was called? The place that was crawling with pirates and the like?
Or does the ship have the ability to open portals on its own?

"And a good morning to all," I say casually, walking up to the table. I could just blithely state that I see a new face and ask if this is Ruby's guest ... but really, that's self-evident and I expect she'll take care of introductions.

Not really.

She dresses you and asks what you wish to have for breakfast.

Demon Chicks, dude. Demon Chicks. They don't do average.

You have to get to the portal before you can cross it, don't you?

You rather walk? :p

"This is the Lady Seneschal," Ruby Eyes introduces her as. "My cousin and the manager of the royal household"

She bows politely.

The demon sisters whisper over. "And her most trusted companion."

"Some believe their relationship is closer than simple family..."

She likely thinks I'm crazy.

You actually manage to not to too horrible, and at one point actually impress her.

"I'm glad to be worthy of your praise." If this includes a spar then I ask about magic, if it doesn't then I ask if I'm worth having a spar with her.

Shelved for the moment, but useful information. And yes, that, I'm trying not to think about that, really ... it's almost working too.
