Re: No Schedules Scord
I'll leave my note to her with her, teleport the other women the same way and return. Hopefully only a couple of seconds later.

I write a note I'll be giving to Lee on a $5 Canadian bill, "I'm sorry I brought you so close to danger. Stay in hiding until you hear that Slidehammer has disappeared."


A meaningless gesture. You'll see.

quote:
I call Carter, "Carter, get ready to teleport Slidehammer or a Demigod of Chaos into your hypercube."


Carter says "What the hell maan!!! I never agreed to help you!!! I was after Whitmore, I got no beef with Slidehammer!!!"

Then he shuts it off. He won't answer.

quote:
I hold one Hammer in each hand, and string the cross around my neck next to my wooden cross (Whips and hatchet on my belt, Rifle strapped to my back).


So you're loaded for bear.

quote:
"If you can hold him off a few seconds, I'll teleport the women out as fast as I can. Alright, enough delaying. Let's get him."


Samantha grabs her chain, sword, and a few other things she's got. She doesn't care about Carter's help or lack thereof. She just wants to kick his ass!!!

quote:
If she has no suggestions, I Chaos teleport into the dungeon, grab Lee and Chaos Teleport out, dropping her off and only stopping long enough to Chaos Heal her with the Hammer if she is life-threateningly injured.


So you grab Samantha's arm and teleport there. You're standing in a dimly-lit hallway. There's rows of naked women chained to the walls. Some are bleeding, some are screaming, some are unconscious. Lee Holloway is there. She's naked and unconscious, and bleeding from her forehead. When you attempt to teleport them out, you realize that their chains are made from black iron. They're going to resist magic. You can neither heal them nor teleport them out at the moment.

Then you hear Slider cackling behind you. Turning around, he's got his white iron hammer in hand. His eyes are glowing. The women which are conscious all turn and begin screaming a loud cacophony of fear and panic. You can barely hear Slider.

"Looks like I'm gonna add Samantha to my harem, and make you watch. This is gonna be fun!!!"

Samantha uncoils her chain. She's got it wrapped around her left forearm.

What are you doing?

OOC) You should know shit like this never goes down the way you expect!!!!

OOC: of course! That's part of the challenge and fun!
This will possibly be my first real longer fight. I'm not entirely sure how the combat system works. I assume it's it turn by turn, so I'll post accordingly.

IC:

Wearing the Priest's Cope, my copper bracelet, my amber in coil pendant and miniature sculpture of Christ's pierced hand in a cloth bag on a gold chain, I hold my hammers out in front of me in the shape of the cross (Chaos hammer in front and held parallel to the ground, Order hammer perpendicular and closer to me), and pray, "Heavenly Father, until Slidehammer desires only good, Your will and what is right, blind him from all sense and sight!" If I Have time, I repeat that in Greek.
((I am mostly trying to make him blind to vision, Chaos/Order vision and Scriff vectors if possible.))


Then I prepare myself to use concepts of turning an enemy's attack back to the attacker from 1@10 Kickboxing Judo to absorb the energy from any Chaos attack through my Chaos Hammer and counter with a physical blow with my Order Hammer (Order Teleporting to get behind him).

Did you learn nothing from your last world? You're not strong enough yet to combine Order and Chaos magic!!!!

You pass out instantly.

But it can't be fore more than a few minutes because when you come to, Samantha's chain is wrapped around Slidehammer's body. His arms are pinned at his sides. His hammer is laying on the ground. He's bucking and moaning like a wild dog on a leash. But Samantha pulls the chain towards her. You see the chain pass through Slidehammer's body. And now, wrapped up in it is a white light demon. It looks like a pock-marked meteor. The features are a study in prime numbers. One mouth, two nostrils, three eyes, and five spikes come out of the top of the head. Each of these five spikes branches off into seven, then eleven, then thirteen branches, in a tangle of prime numbers. It's the Demigod of Chaos in its true form. Slider collapses on the ground, unconscious.

Samantha struggles with it even more viciously than before. She finally yanks the chain with everything she's got. It flies over your body and back behind Samantha. The chain unwraps and the DOC flies free.

Until it flies straight into a crystalline jar, held by Magehammer. He's just there behind you. He slams the lid down on the jar, looks at the squirming DOC and says "Gotcha Fucker!!!"

OOC: I was actually trying to do Yahweh magic without letting go of the hammers, but it's cool. No contest.
Would the judo thing have worked if he threw a fireball or something at me?
What about the combat system itself? Turn based?
Did just touching the Hammers together cause me to pass out, or the attempted curse (assuming it had been Order-Chaos).
I assume combining Order and Chaos spells could happen as a weapon user, but that I'd have to be much more advanced. Is that the case? I'm guessing 2@1 at least in both relevant spells?

IC:

I start examining the black iron chains for a way to open them.

"Magehammer! How are you? It's freakin great to see you, especially since I just lost consciousness in the middle of a battle!

"Awesome work, Samantha!"


I pray over the women for healing.

OOC) The way you said that, it sounded like you were trying to do all three of them at the same time. Glad you're not upset.

OOC) The Zen answer would be "Aren't you glad you didn't have to find out?"

quote:

OOC) Yup!!! But the winner of this was decided about the time the world started. We just needed to hammer out how it would go down.

That will be taken care of.

quote:
"Magehammer! How are you? It's freakin great to see you, especially since I just lost consciousness in the middle of a battle!


He looks at you with no recognition at all. "Do I know you? I must. You've got one of my hammers. Where did you get the other weapons? You'll have to excuse me. I've been in the verse for I don't know how long. I don't even think there's a word for how long I've been out here. I've met millions of people, tens of thousands of versers. You don't expect me to remember everybody do you? How's that hammer working for you?"

He's gonna leave at the end of this, but you'll get another post or two to talk to him.

quote:
"Awesome work, Samantha!"


At this Magehammer says "Sambina? Is that you? Her I remember."

"Mister Magehammer, what are you doing here?"

"I was over in my other verse. Then the gods of Order and Chaos summoned me. Said I'd have a chance to catch the DOC. They gave me this jar and brought me up to speed on what was happening. And here I am."

Slider meanwhile starts moaning. He's waking up. Magehammer goes up to him and takes away his hammer and other magic weapons.

Slider says "Mage? I'm in trouble aren't I?"

Magehammer says "Not with me. But what you're gonna do now is abdicate the throne to your vice president. I understand that's somebody named Whitmore. Then you're gonna be a good boy from now on. Got it?"

Slider nods "Got it." He's completely powerless and he knows it.

Then Magehammer snaps his fingers and a Chaos wave goes down the hallway and reduces all of the women's chains to powder. The women all fall to the ground. He looks at you and Samantha and says "You two got this, right?"

Samantha nods.

And then Magehammer disappears.

quote:
I pray over the women for healing.


After he leaves, you kneel down and pray. All of the women stop bleeding. Those that are unconscious regain consciousness. They're all looking to you and Samantha for answers. Several of them start to move at Slider. It's clear they will tear him apart if you don't do anything.

a silver coin (from LHOTP)
Florins (appears to be made out of nickel): 1 cent, 5 cent, 10 cent, 25 cent, 50 cent and 1 florin

I quickly use my Order hammer to 1@2 Stealth Conceal Other Slider, and I say, "Ladies, this man has been possessed by an evil spirit for a long time. He is abdicating his throne to me, and he is my prisoner, and therefore I am keeping him safe for the time being.

He looks at the Chaos hammer and says "Yeah, that's a nail hybrid. Did I make that as an Order hammer?"

And he says that before you mention the nail hybrid.

Then he says "I saw you pass out trying to use the Order hammer and Chaos hammer together. If you want to gain strength quickly, try alternating between Order and Chaos whenever possible. So you don't get overloaded on one kind."

quote:

He looks confused and happy for you. "I told you that? That's strange. I've never heard of a tool user who could make weapons from wood. The nail hybrids, yeah, I've seen those before. But as far as I know, you're unique if you're a tool user who can make weapons from raw materials."

He also told you that he had no idea how to jump dimensions. Which is what he did to get here.

quote:
"Don't worry about it. This is only my fourth world. Have you made anything for Samantha or cast any beneficial spells on her yet?"


"Yeah I have. She started out as an elderly woman. Weak and frail. I gave her the ability to manipulate her age so she could be young again."

Samantha started out as an eight year old girl.

quote:
"I cannot thank you enough! It has helped me save uncounted numbers of lives already. Most of whom were originally harmed by Slidehammer.


"That's cool!! Most tool users can't do magic at all. Sounds like you might be on your way to becoming a mage."

quote:
"Hey, I remember that you help your brother collect special coins. I've kept a few from the places I've been, and I'm starting to collect paper currency. Would you like to see if I have any you might want?" I show him what I have:

quote:

OOC) Some GMs would make that a new skill. But sure. New Use.

New Use on Conceal Other

Most of them kind of jump when Slider disappears. But they all stop moving at him. You also hear a lot of confused "Long time? Time being?"

They don't understand those concepts.

quote:
"What he has done to you is purely evil. And you now have a choice to make.

GE16

They all want to be healed of their current injuries. But for the rest, there is no unilateral decision. Some want to be made beautiful, some want to stay as they are. Some want to remember, some want to forget.

I'd like to get a few new uses out of that, especially the ones who want to forget. I don't have any Chaos Hammer skills yet.
Using the Chaos hammer, I will try to draw the Chaos out of the mind of one who wants to forget.

But first I heal Lee and ask if she is willing to stay on as my secretary. If she agrees, I announce that I'll be right back, and stealth her and myself. I explain that she will be invisible for a bit. I use my Order Hammer to make Slider sleep, and use handcuffs to restrain him. I try to use the crowbar to magically seal the handcuffs. I hand my Paintball gun to Lee and ask her to shoot Slider with a paintball if he wakes up.

Then I try to Chaos teleport to my room. I check to see if the surveillance videos have been recording. If they have been, I save the last few hours on a disk or cd or tape or whatever and take it with me as I Chaos teleport back to the prison and finish the healings.

"Indeed you should."

"Woah, you're a divergent Magehammer from the one I knew. This Samantha first versed as an eight year old."

quote:
"That would certainly be interesting. One last thing, the Magehammer I knew didn't know how to jump between dimensions or verses. Do you mind telling me how you do that?"


"Wish I knew. The gods of Order and Chaos summoned me. One minute I'm walking down the street, then all of a sudden I'm in their presence. They gave me this jar and sent me here. They said they needed a high level mage for a job. Who was I to argue? I expect they're going to summon me back to collect the DOC, then put me back on the street I was on."

He takes out the jar to show it to you. It's crystal, and crystal clear. The Demigod of Chaos is inside. You see it as a white light with three eyes. But it looks malevolent and furious.

"Crystal is good for making Order weapons. Try making a crystal Order shield sometime."

And then he just vanishes.

OOC) Don't forget, Slidehammer was a Chaos mage. Everything he promised can be done with Chaos magic. Of course, it can also be done with Order magic....... Also, sorry to disappoint, but why would you expect New Uses for doing the exact same thing over and over?

First attempt to remove a woman's memories fails. But you focus and try again. A white aura flows from her head and into the hammer. Suddenly she's looking at you blankly, asking where she is and how she got here. And why is she naked? She's not getting violent, but she wants some answers pronto.

Might want to heal them and get their clothes first before you start removing memories. But 1@1 Chaos remove memories.

OOC) Confused. First you said you going to draw out memories, later you said first you were going to heal Lee. So which is it? A retcon is only a request away.

GE 14

She's remarkably calm. She's also most grateful that you intervened before he could take her virginity away. You heal Lee with the Chaos hammer. Removing the white aura. She's still naked but she's fine. She will remain as your secretary and do as you ask provided you blank her memory of this event.

You knock out Slider and seal the handcuffs. Now only your tool will unlock them.

1@1 Chaos healing.
1@2 Seal locks with Multitool.

GE 18

It's on a Betamax videotape.

Samantha searches the prison for their clothes. You heal, you blank memories and you make some beautiful. The ones with their memories blanked are confused but not violent. No new uses, but lots of practice.

1@1 Chaos make beautiful.

Just thought of this.
I ask Magehammer, "I don't want to worry about any contested items trouble when Slider or I verse out, so if that would be an issue, ignore this request. But, would it be possible for me to take any of those for myself? Plus, Samantha is now a Chaos Mage, so if I truly need anything, I'm sure she could help me."

quote:
It's crystal, and crystal clear


Now, when you say crystal, do you mean the same kind of crystal that is used to make dishes and which would be part of working glass, or the kind that forms naturally in caves and geodes such?

I snap my fingers, and say, "I knew it! But I don't think I'm advanced enough yet in working glass. Soon, I hope."
1@5 Shaping Glass
1@10 Stone weaponry (flaking flint & quartz etc)

4 new skills, and one already at 1@2 - I'm not disappointed at all. Except that I imagined some might have different ailments than others, but I am happy to assume they all had the same injuries, and get new uses from other things later on.

quote:

For the rest, I do.

quote:

I'm happy with the current results.

I do attempt to make one person more beautiful with Order Magic using my Order hammer, and also I try to remove memories with Order, even though I have my doubts that it will even work.

Once the women are healed, dressed (including Lee) and freed from the room, I go with Lee, Samantha and Slider out to someplace private. I remove the stealthing and invisibilities, and then try to release the sleeping spell to wake him up.

Once he is awake, I say, "Alright, Slider. Let's work out the details of this abdication. We need to give everyone a good reason. We have a few choices. I am willing to allow you to save face in this, but the stories of what you have done will leak out, and your life will be in danger.

"This is what I propose.
"We tell everyone that you were caught in the midst of illicit violent sex acts against many women, and that out of remorse for your crimes you have abdicated to myself, and have agreed to imprisonment.

"I'll have a prison for you made, and keep you there - keeping those who would harm you away from you. Within the prison, you will be free to roam. Food and beverages will be provided. I will visit you from time to time, and will allow others to visit you under certain conditions (especially that they do not harm you). You are a famous man, and there will likely be some women who will want to meet you for conjugal visits. This of course will be permitted.

"I also acknowledge that we will likely meet again sometime in another universe. So I am willing to provide you with nearly anything you ask so long as it harms no one, and doesn't let you break free from the prison. Including television, books, drugs, and other entertainments.

"Also, after the abdication and a period of time allowed for public inquiry and confirmation of facts, any time you choose, I am willing to provide you with a means of versing out.

"Your other choice is that we go to a public trial. I will still provide you with a means of versing out, if the punishment will do more harm than good. You are immortal, and even though others may not understand that fact, I know that your only hope is to find peace and goodness - to find your niche in which you can do good and serve life and find joy and love and fulfilment."

"There are other possibilities, but I fear you would find them far less desirable. What say you, old friend?"

"Dude, white iron is unbelievably unstable. Even for advanced mages like me. It isn't a question of if these are going to botch and destroy a world. It's a question of when will they botch and destroy a world? I hate messing with this stuff. I only made them in the first place because the gods of Order and Chaos commanded me to. I guess they wanted Slider to do this. Maybe so I could catch the DOC? Who knows? But when I leave with them, there will be no question of contested ownership. They can't verse out of an alternate universe."

So the answer is no.

OOC) Time for me to come clean. This is something my GM would do. You might notice I sometimes skirt questions like this. It boils down to four words. "How would you know?" Can you tell the difference between crystal glass and natural crystal? Because if you can't tell the difference, then I can't really tell you. That's why I often skirt questions like this. How would you know?

As far as injuries, it's mostly blunt force hammer blows and cuts. You're removing pretty much the same memories from all of them.

quote:

Removing Chaos removes the memory. Adding Order covers it up. On the other side, Order is more effective at making someone beautiful. Removing Chaos take them to their maximum potential. Adding Order increases their potential. But you've got 1@1 Order make beautiful and 1@2 Order cover memories.

Slider tells you that the torture dungeon has a tunnel that leads back to the mansion. Looking through your hammer, you see no lying Chaos. So you follow that back. From there, you've got a limo driver who will take them home in batches.

But as far as what to do about his abdication, he says "Why not an old fashioned assassination????"

"How do you want to go? I'm sure anything could be arranged. Death by OD? Mauled to death by a mob of angry naked women? Chased off a cliff by a charging bull? Frozen to death in Order Ice? Bullet to the head? How do you want it?"


Once this is over, I call up carter, "Hey bud! I'm the king of the world! Slidehammer is gone. No need to run anymore. In fact, I'd like to appoint you as technological advisor. Are you up to it? Payment in drugs or whatever.

Re: No Schedules Scord
Slider ponders and says "I always liked the way president Fitzgerald John Lincoln Kennedy was killed. Sniper shot to the back of the head while riding in a limo. A gilded cage is still a cage. Mage said he versed himself out to escape prison. That's what I'd do. You gotta understand maan, except for this, I am a beloved ruler. I want to keep that. You understand, right?"

When you call Carter, he says he'll teleport right over. There's the blue light wave. Unfortunately though, Lee Holloway is standing not inches from the spot of his teleportation. She's hit by an electrical wave strong enough to electrocute her. She verses out.

Carter starts to say "Hidey ho verserino!!! I......"

But he's cut off. A flat electronic device like an Ipod materializes in the room on the exact spot Lee Holloway was standing. Carter picks it up and it starts playing.

It's a recorded video of Lee Holloway. Far from the mousy submissive that you met. She's decked out in a black leather jacket with her hair in Statue of Liberty spikes all painted different colors. She's waving around a knife that would make a Klingon crap his pants. She says harshly "Looks like that stone-brain son-of-a-bitch got my virginity after all!!!! You tell him if I ever catch him out here, I'll kill him deader than he's ever been. You hear me Slidehammer???? I'LL KILL YOU DEADER THAN YOU'VE EVER BEEN!!!!!!!"

Then the video shuts off. That's the only thing it will play.

Carter muses "Scriff mail. Interesting."

Slider gulps.

Re: No Schedules Scord
"very interesting! I really wish you hadn't versed out my secretary, though. She was a very good one. Now I need a new one.

"Thank you for coming, Carter. I have a whole bunch of ideas and I can't wait to get started. My endgame goal is a scientocracy luxury communism peaceful interplanetary colonization civilization. I want benevolent AI, automated production of everything, and personal freedom for everyone. Ultimately I want to see a world where there are no laws because laws aren't needed. People can't be killed, because they are automatically uploaded into a data core, and can be downloaded into a new body within seconds. A world where you only die when you are ready to die. A world where you can change your gender or physical appearance as easily as you change your wardrobe. A world where the pursuit of life and love are paramount, and made accessible to everyone.

"How we get there, I am of course not entirely sure. But I have a few ideas on how to start. First, we need fully automated food production. The people who currently make their livings providing for that and who would be out of a job, should be provided a pension based on the income of the automated food production.

"Automate everything we can, until everyone has a pension and no one needs to work.

"Then we focus on maintaining a generous but not excessive population until interstellar colonization becomes a reality. At that point we focus on planetary defence systems while expansion continues.

"Any thoughts?


I turn to Slider, "Alright, you'll have your parade. I'll even pull the trigger."

I might do this, but I'm not decided yet. It depends on Slider.
quote:
I use my Order hammer to silence Slider (and if possible his telepathic abilities?), and I use my Chaos hammer to make a false image of him smiling and waving like he's in a parade, and one that makes the cuffs seem to disappear. Then I lead Slider into the main palace.

I find someone to take over as secretary, and arrange for the parade. I tell a body guard that Slidehammer is high as a kite, and needs someone to watch him.
To anyone who asks, I introduce Samantha as my new wife.

When it comes time for the parade, I use my Order hammer to stealth myself and then my Chaos hammer to make the guard think that he is me, then I get set up in a position to shoot him with my rifle.

Re: No Schedules Scord
GE 9

Carter says "Yeah, I think I can pull some of that off. Chance to stretch my brain muscles. Really see what I can do. For the right compensation, that is."

You can almost hear the gears turning in his head.

"As far as interstellar travel though, that ain't gonna happen. Didn't you ever notice there's no stars when the sun goes down? As far as I can tell, this is a completely self-contained universe. The sun is only a few blinktards across, and that's fine, because it's only a few hundred blinktards away. This universe is like a hydrogen atom. The planet is the nucleus and the sun is the electron circling. And that's the whole universe."

OOC) A blinktard is an imaginary unit of measurement so I don't have to worry about getting any science right there.

Slider agrees to your sniper plan. He's upset though because he really is a beloved ruler here. All the public sees are unattractive women being made beautiful. They're better than before. They don't even remember what happened to them. Did he really do anything wrong?

The public sees him removing Chaos from crops so they will grow better. They see him leveling rocky areas for building. You're going to have a lot to live up to when he verses out.

Now he has to go out into the verse with nothing. Now he's just a kid. He hasn't really learned anything new other than magic since Candy Store. And now he has no magic. And he's got crazy Lee Holloway out there too. But once this story breaks, all that's over anyway. So better to verse himself out now before that.

This is going to be like if, after his death, a torture dungeon was discovered underneath Mister Rogers' house. He's that well loved.

So he wants to be taken out in the next hour. Make an announcement of a parade or something. On this world, things like that can be arranged unbelievably quickly.

"Yeah, I wondered about that. I was going to try to teleport out away from the planet surface to see what I could find out there, but that saves me the trouble. Instead, I guess we'll have to put them on the track to interuniversal colonization.

"In the meantime I have a plan to prevent overpopulation. Is there a way we can control the fertility of everyone on the planet with technology?"


quote:

"I'm starting to think it might be best if history here only remembers your goodness. Im going to destroy the dungeon when we leave it.

"You know, Slider? You've really grown a lot as a person since Minnesota. I swept up your mess there. Fortunately it was all a fake universe created by the gods of Order and Chaos specifically to slow you down and probably to test me as well.

"Now you are loved. That takes a lot of growth.

"What you did was almost not bad. The problem is that you didn't get their permission first. You could have interviewed them, told them everything that might have happened to them and if they agreed, wipe their memory of the interview and take them. If they declined, wiped their memory of the interview and let them go. That would have been perfectly acceptable in my mind at least. The proof that it wasn't good is in the anger of Lee.

"Speaking of which, I might be able to help you there. This is a Scriff Sense blocking watch. Activate it, and your Scriff vector will be undetectable. Do you own any guns? You'll need 'em. We can get you some if you don't own any."

"Next, let me tell you about Yahweh." 

I give him my Scriff blocking watch and evangelize him, then I say, "And the power of God is real." I pray, "Heavenly Father, give us a sign of Your presence and Your power. Fill this room with Divine light and our hearts and minds with the ecstasy of Your Love" I repeat the prayer in Greek. My goal is to have a shadowless light fill the room, and for everyone in the room to feel deeply and completely loved and accepted.

OOC: IRL, I helped one person through their journey as they converted to Christianity, baptizing them at the end. And have introduced others to the faith. I have also had an "enlightenment" or "mountaintop" experience which includes that feeling of being loved.

After this is done, I will make an announcement of a parade, and get things ready. I try to use my Chaos hammer to simply create an image of myself.

Before I forget, I obtain this world's equivalent of a Bible for my collection.

Once everyone is out of the dungeon, I destroy it like this:

I create sand by removing the Order, then add Chaos to crumble some more, then add Order to make rubble into crystal or whatever, then remove Chaos to turn rubble into sandstone, then remove Order to make more break, then add Chaos to burn stuff, then add order to freeze stuff, then remove Chaos to blunt sharp edges, then repeat until the dungeon is utterly destroyed.

Any new uses/skills?

Re: No Schedules Scord
I try to find suicide pills that I can give to Slider, and I explain to him that the Scriff blocking of the watch only lasts for 12 hours.

Also before I forget, I ask Carter if he has an electronic copy of Paintball World's Bible that I could have.

For Carter's pay, I offer him all the drugs I have access to.

I'd like benevolent AI to be my successor after Samantha.

I'll continue Slidehammer's offer to level things and such, and I'll expand that to include Order services, and ask Samantha to help with Chaos ones.

I'll also eventually ask Samantha to make me some more nails and a Chaos blade.

For the population control:
Everyone is born with the right to one child. That right can be sold to the government for a (very) small pension.
Rights to additional children can be similarly bought or earned.
   Passing a child psychology based parenting test gives you the right to one more child.
   Passing a further intelligence test gives the right to another.
   Being particularly healthy gives additional child rights.
Victims of child-loss by murder or other not-at-fault reasons get a free right-to-breed child.
Babies use up 1 portion of a right from each genetic parent for a total of 1 per child.
Good parents (who pass multiple parenting tests) can adopt unwanted children and are given a small pension to cover the added costs.

Carter looks confused. "Why do you want to control their population? Do you think they're overcrowded? Based on my tracking of your scriff vector, you only saw a tenth of a tenth of a tenth of the planet. These folks are nomadic. Nomads tend to hit spots where they bunch up together, leaving the rest of the place a virtual no man's land. I assure you, this place is not overcrowded. Travel a thousand miles east and you'll see it's pretty barren of people."

quote:
"Speaking of which, I might be able to help you there. This is a Scriff Sense blocking watch. Activate it, and your Scriff vector will be undetectable. Do you own any guns? You'll need 'em. We can get you some if you don't own any."


Slider first asks you to take the handcuffs off.

As for guns, he kind of snickers. "Do I have any guns......."

And he shows you his personal collection. Somewhere, Charlton Heston is drooling.

Slider listens to your speeches, nods and smiles. You kind of get the impression that, no matter what you say, he's just going to follow Robert Downey Jr's motto "Listen, Smile, Agree, and then do whatever the fuck you were gonna do anyway."

quote:
"Next, let me tell you about Yahweh."

My goal is to have a shadowless light fill the room, and for everyone in the room to feel deeply and completely loved and accepted.


You pray, and the room lights. Shadows disappear. The room is warm, light and serene. Everyone else is in awe. Slider just kind of shrugs. He was a Chaos mage. He's not impressed.

quote:

You don't create an image of yourself with a Chaos hammer. You Chaos the mind of the person seeing it so they think you're there. But it's not.

quote:

You've got one. All references to time are gone.

Success, success, botch, GE 26

You remove Order and the walls weaken. They begin to crumble to sand. Then you add Chaos and it's really beginning to fall apart. Not quite yet though. But when you try to add Order to crystallize it, the whole place collapses on you. The last thing you will see is Samantha trying to undo it with her Chaos hammer. But she's too late.

Thou Art Dead.

Re: No Schedules Scord
Okay, but I want to wrap a few things up.

quote:

1@1 Light of Yahweh? High level would burn evil things?

quote:
Why do you want to control their population? Do you think they're overcrowded?

"Overpopulation was only a small portion of the concern. We can increase the base number to two or three for now, and reduce it as necessary. The primary purpose is a gentle form of Eugenics. My home world was plagued by malgenics. The intelligent poor refrained from children to limit their financial burden, while the stupid and lazy had many children. This happened for so long that my world was on the brink of causing its own extinction when I versed out. An attempt at eugenics had been made decades before my birth, but it was a militant eugenics in which mentally ill and handicapped and the imprisoned were forcibly castrated. And this was done in the world's supposed shining example of democracy. The eugenics of this design is meant to maintain a high degree of genetic diversity and freedom while rewarding evolutionarily advantageous behavior."

quote:
He was a Chaos mage. He's not impressed.


"Look, I'm just trying to show you that there are other forms of power beyond Chaos and Order magic. Diversify."

quote:
You don't create an image of yourself with a Chaos hammer. You Chaos the mind of the person seeing it so they think you're there. But it's not.


So this works on a whole crowd?

I don't want retcon, but I wouldn't have done it like that. I wasn't clear in my explanation, so my fault. I would have been outside of the danger zone during the whole process, even if it took longer.

Whether or not you were in the danger zone, you still rolled a lethal botch. You're still dead. Maybe I misinterpreted how it would play out, but you're dead nonetheless.
