Last Time, on Feral Necromancer Quest: You were faced with your firs ever crisis since the birth of the Alliance, indeed a set of three crises. You chose to lead the diplomatic mission to the orcs of the Southern Sea yourself, leaving the Elves with investigations to the East and the West. You met with the orcish raiders, and they feared you as one of their gods, as you approached them in your true form. You quickly dissuaded them of the notion, showing that you are in truth a man and a leader of men, but your show of force made significant inroads with them- furthered by your offering of food and land. After the feast, however, four young orcs had gone missing and you set out to investigate their disappearance. You found them enthralled by a group of dryads, and you failed to convince them to let the orcs go. You chose not to fight them for it, and returned instead to orcs to convince the warlike tribe to move on, finding more success here. They have established themselves near Pernite lands and may become a civilization in their own right. All the while, Bathory had been scouting the Pernite lands, and learned of the coming of a new Prophet. Lathrien, in the meantime, discovered that the city to the East contained stasis pods for over a hundred ancient High Elves. Once more, you have your hands full. And that is where the thirty fourth installment of Feral Necromancer Quest concluded.

The Cast:

Vlad Tepish: You, a necromancer and a shaman of great skill. You achieved your immortality, and your true form is now that of a black dragon. You hold the tie-breaker vote in the Council of Elders of the Alliance.

Bathory Tepish: Your lover and the mother of your child. She is a cunning diplomat in her own right, and she has become the chronicler of the Alliance.

Mihnea: Your ten year old daughter. She is starting to realize that your magic is cool, even if it is not like in the stories. Self-confident and rash, you have made sure she is given all the best education.

first for orcs should have settled nearer to our lands

>>44564206
Lathrien: A Vampire and your erstwhile apprentice, the young elf has grown into a formidable man. A master of discipline and illusion, he can become all but invisible when he wishes to do so, and his mind is honed to a razor's edge.

Melandie: Your best tracker, scout, and an elven berserker, she is a complicated person. She wields a runed greatsword and a greatbow into battle, and has been making friends among kobolds and gnolls to the exclusion of her own race.

Korg: Your orcish blackguard, he is bound to your will. Wielding a massive warhammer, he likes nothing more than to use it. A creature of simple pleasures and direct methods he is a terrifying warrior. Your daughter has taken a liking to him and calls him 'Uncle Korg'.

Halivean (Hal): Your elven blackguard, he is fanatically loyal to you. Strong, fast and clever, he is a terror on the battlefield, but he excels at leading your undead into combat.

Karist: Dwarven runesmith and elder.

Spot: Gnoll rogue and boss.

Vlad the Kobold: Kobold leader.

Amythrien: Elven craftsman and elder.

Sheila: Human elder from your village.

Housekeeping:

I have updated the Character Sheets to include Bathory and to update Lathrien and Melandie to their post-timeskip stats. Character sheets here: http://pastebin.com/vBRyBWfK

I have added Acrobatics, Athletics and Unarmed Perks to the Perks list. Perks list and character advancement here: http://pastebin.com/WwpGdjMJ

I have decided to scrap the Civilization rules for now. They were poorly balanced and thematically inappropriate. It is not yet time for the next time-skip, but expect something more narrative and simplified both for the next Civilization turn.

You have just returned from your diplomatic mission with the raiders and dryads, but already more emergencies have come to your immediate attention.

Certainly, much to consider, but one way or another you feel that meeting the remnants of the ages past should be your priority- if not perhaps and absolutely immediate one.

You land, and turn back into your human form.

'So, how did you like your first adventure?' You say.
'It was really weird!' Mihnea says in a voice that is usually reserved for 'ponies' in a little girl's dictionary.
'Well, I am glad you liked it. I am just happy we could do it without bloodshed.' you say.
'Me too. Do you ever want to fight an epic battle again?'
'I don't want to, but I fear there shall be plenty of those in my life,'
'Why not?'
'Death is not pretty. War is not nice.'
'Not even when you dropped a mountain on the bad elves?'
'That was one of the uglier things I've done. It needed doing, but I am not proud of it,'
'But they deaded the old elf elder,'
'And I did nothing to bring him back. Their deaths were an extreme response.'
'Oh. Okay.'
'No more on that. Go play, I am sure you want to tell your friends all about this.'
'Yes!'

You walk towards your keep. Already some supplicants are coming towards you. You call an emergency council meeting, and within five minutes they are all gathered.

In the meantime, you order your blackguard to fortify your Western borders. Hal and Korg take a hundred of your undead as well as a few dwarven builders and move out to get to work.

And then you are in front of the council.

>Just tell them about the high elves and move immediately to meet them.

The council has changed much in the last ten years. It is all the same people, but two of them are reaching the twilight of their years. Vlad the Kobold and Spot are both reaching the end of their respective lifespans. Where Vlad the Kobold has become more kindly, his rust-coloured scales dusted with grey and his face wrinkled from a near-constant smile, Spot has become meaner, uglier and almost entirely grey. Sheila is well into her middle-age, Karist and Amythrien have changed little in appearance, though both of them have taken to wearing spider-silk outfits, red for Karist and green for Amythrien. They sit around an oval stone table, with you at the head of it, in your hall, lit by torches.

'Gentlemen, lady, I have called this council due to a major change in our circumstances,' you say.
'Grrr finally. Is it war?' says Spot, raspy and irritable.
'Let Vlad finish, will ya?' says Karist.
'This most concerns our elven allies. Little less than a week ago, Lathrien ventured East to investigate an ancient city. It was obvious that it was pre-War of the Magi, and it was incredibly well preserved. We hoped to find artifacts, perhaps some clue of the exact nature of the war. What Lathrien found instead was a significant number of actual ancient elves, suspended in some sort of a stasis. They have now awoken, and we need to respond to them promptly,' you say.
'That's... No, the ancients are lost,' Amythrien says.
'It does sound damnably unlikely,' Sheila says.
'Need I remind you about Lathriens abilities? Or reassure you of his loyalty? If he reports it, I trust that report more than I would trust my own eyes.' you say.
'So what'd we do next?' Karist says.
'We open with diplomacy, of course. There is much that we could learn from them, and there is much that they will need to learn from us to survive,' you say.
'Grrr, dealing with more elves. Fine, if Vlad thinks it's best,' Spot says.
'I think it is, more friends is always best!' Vlad the Kobold says.

>>44565505
'The real Vlad,' Spot says.
'Indeed I do. I might remind you of how our own relationship started, elder Spot,' you say.
'And that's why I'm going along with it. Don't mean I have to be wagging my tail for it,' Spot says.
'Fine. Of course, Amythrien should come with me as representative of the Elves in our Alliance,'
'Hm? Yes. Yes of course,' Amythrien says.
'I shall also be taking Melandie and Lathrien as my close allies and interested parties. Otherwise we shall keep the party small,'
'Yes. Wise. Don't want to show all of our power and such.' Amythrien says, 'How will we approach.'

>'We'll fly. I'll take you there on my back and approach them from a position of strength.'
>'We'll fly to within a day's walk from the city. Then we shall approach them on foot.'
>'We travel in the mundane way. I shall raise a few suitable beasts for riding and we'll be on our way.'
>Write-in additional or alternative approach and travel methods.

'Flight. Their first impression of me should be that of a powerful wizard.'
'Isn't that counter-productive to the taking a small delegation idea?' Amythrien says.
'They are ancient elves. Powerful magic was normal for them. I will not be spoken down to and so I must show them my own power.'
'Oh. Right. Makes sense. In that case, there's this device I'd like to take with us. Nothing fancy, but I think I've managed to re-create one of the Ancient's artifacts from our oldest tales,'
'What does it do?'
'Oh, I have no idea,' Amythrien says.

'That will be all for today. Spot, would you like to stay behind?'
'Better than going back to those idiots,'
'What idiots?'
'My fucking pack. Grarh.'

The rest of the council has left.

'Anything wrong?'
'No, but they refuse to change. We're settlers now. We have allies. We are better off than any of our ancestors. Fucking idiots don't get it.'
'How so?'
'Pah, want to back-stab you, or the council, or everyone. I keep them in line, probably have a passable heir in line but I sure am not dying any time soon,'
'Have they tried to move on you?'
'Gruh? Oh yes, 'course. Once or twice a week. I'm twice the sneak as any two of them combined. Killed the worst ones, but can't afford to make examples, have to hide bodies, be tricksy,'
'Shit, Spot, why didn't you come to me earlier?'
'No. No others. Got to sort it out myself or lose all control. Anyways, what's up with Vlad?'
'Well, the Pernites are stirring. Might be war. Sent Korg and Hal to fortify borders.'
'Well there I have it! Send me and my pack with them. Let us get ready for war if we can't have it now!'
'You know, that's not a half bad idea. Leave by nightfall. Anyways, how has life been treating you. Other than the backstabbing of Gnoll politics, I mean...'

You chat for a few hours and it soon turns to a lighter conversation. The old dog hasn't changed much, and it's a pleasure to talk to someone so unabashedly twisted. Spot isn't dying of anything but old age, you're sure. On the other hand, that day might come sooner rather than later and then you will have a pack of gnolls to contend with. Perhaps you should prepare for that.

You retire to the library to research the gnoll physiology and society in the old books. By nightfall you've learned nothing more than that the Ancients knew even less about the creatures than you do, dismissing them as mindless brutes, or idealizing them as noble savages, but nothing in between.

'Vlad Tepish, I figured it out. See, try channeling some magic into this!'

Amythrien has brought you a device, one of the strange salt-like crystals elves use so often in their crafts, interlaid with metres of brass piping, silver and strange sigils.

You do, and a black liquid flows out of one of the tubes. It is steaming, and fragrant.

'Taste it!'

Fuck it. You do and it tastes bitter, but not altogether unpleasant.

'It makes cohvee!' Amythrien says.
'I see no harm in this, I guess. It could be a useful diplomatic gift. Now, we should start getting on our way.'

You leave the keep and you transform into your true form, once more taking your small delegation with you.

'So, elder Amythien, what ancient tale inspired to make your... device?' you say.
'My, we are very high up! Are you quite certain that is neccessary?'
'The air is less dense up here, I can generate the same lift by flying faster, as I would by flying more slowly and lower down,'
'Oh! Oh that makes sense, and it gives me an idea for... Wait no, never mind, no light enough materials available. What were you asking?'
'The cahvee maker. What sort of a tale did it feature in?'
'Oh we've lost pretty much everything. When we find some ancient writings we keep them, I have quite the collection. Of course, since none of us could read, it was just a collection. Now I've learned and can try to make some of the things.

I fear it was just something of an instruction manual, though I was sure it was for something a little more... impressive. Still though, this cahvee is very nice once you get used to it. Keeps me alert too,'

'Does it now? Interesting. Well, I am certain the elves will be pleased to have their cohvee, just like back home,'
'Yes! That's the hope. Oh, do you think any of their scholars will have survived? Absolutely fascinating subject to me. My ancestors, blah blah, of course lovely, but the feats they accomplished back in their time!'
'You mean like destroying the world?'
'Hm? No! No, that was definitely a mistake on their part. Still though, more knowledge cannot be bad.'
'Right. Might I ask, elder, it seems like this is the first real conversation we've had. Why have you not attempted to get to know me?'
'Hm? Oh, just that you were doing everything more or less right, so I didn't feel like interfering. And there's the tribe to manage.'

did anyone else notice that there's seven ranks of a basketweaving perk available?
>>
'Do you not think that makes you appear subservient?'
'Well, I mean yes. Why would I pretend that you couldn't crush our tribe with a flick of the wrist?'
'But I wouldn't.'
'While we fall in line, be reasonable, sure. What if I say, demanded a ban on all necromancy in line with the cultural history of my people?'
'But your people have no cultural history of anti-necromantic sentiment,'
'As if that would matter at any step of the discussion,'
'I see your point. I doubt any would stand with you on that platform,'
'I can be, ah, more persuasive than you might have guessed. Or maybe I cannot, but assume I could. So, I have convinced the elves that necromancy is evil and that you must stop doing it. What do you do?'
'Try to convince them you're full of shit,'
'You fail. I've convinced them fully and you say the wrong thing. Now we are all offended and demand you cease the use of necromancy, or we shall attack you, what do you do now,'
'Remind you that you would fail and that I could crush your tribe,'
'And that threat would stop us, because we know you could. No. There is no point in arguing with you, unless it is a hill I'm willing to die upon. And if I'm agreeable most of the time, it will be all the more obvious I am serious when I do disagree with you,'
'I am starting to understand,'
'Yes, well see, all of that stems from...'
'Oh shut the fuck up, I get enough of this whenever I visit the tribe,' Melandie says.
'Hm? Melandie, the only thing I keep reminding you is that for the successful advancement of a people a social contract must be set up and followed by all...'
'God fucking dammit! You don't need me, do you? I've not seen you going on about social contract with Lathrien,'
'Oh, that's because he's asked to be considered outside of our society, and instead a part of Vlad Tepish's tribe,'
'But I do not want to be part of any tribe, aside from the Alliance, maybe,'
'Ah. You should have said so,'
'I did. You didn't stop talking.'
>>
>>44567338
'Oh. I apologize. Would you like to talk to your friend?'
'Uh. Sure,' Melandie says, and the elves re-arrange so that Melandie and Lathrien can conveniently talk to you.

There is a strange familiarity between them, you imagine caused by living together for ten years now.

'So, going to meet the ancient elves. Excited?'
'Not much good come out of digging around ancient ruins, has it?' Melandie says.
'Well, I doubt the Alliance could have formed without the knowledge in the temple,'
'Yeah, and by all accounts the lich there didn't even know that there was a war on. Clearly a typical member of the elven society.'
'Well, surely not all the ancient elves could have been snooty and self-important,' you say.
'Actually... They kind of were,' Lathrien says
'What do you mean?' you say
'Well, as far as I understand only those with a high social status were placed in the stasis fields. Only the ones with the most money could afford the most advanced containers, which are the only ones that didn't fail. So, they sort of are snobbish, self-important and whatever other descriptor you might want to use,' Lathrien says
'Fucking fantastic,' Melandie says
'Well, that makes things easier,' you say
'How the fuck does it makes things easier?' Melandie says.
'If they think themselves all-important, it should be easy to get along with them. Just pretend that you agree with them, and they'll love you truly,' you say.
'Vlad, please don't fucking make me do this,' Melandie says.
'Oh! I've always so longed to meet one of the legendary, elegant and beautiful Ancients,' you say, in mock-Melandie voice.
'FUUUUUUUUCK YOOOOOOOU!' Melandie shouts.

Some twenty minutes later you feel magic in the air. You rapidly decelerate and almost smash head-first into a massive magical barrier. Clearly the elves have set up serious magical defences.

'Hm, I know this one,' you say.

You circle the dome once, and you land on a clearing bisected by the dome. You make certain that at least one elf sees you as you turn back into your human form.

You walk up to the dome and knock. Three times, not very loudly.

So a dread necromancer, a berserker with a greatsword and bow, a gaunt vampire and a mad scientist walk up to a giant elven dome.

'I am Vlad Tepish, and I seek audience with your leader.'

It takes about five minutes of nothing much happening and then an elf, older looking, but not ancient starts walking towards you. He walks painfully slowly, sure, there is a water-like flow to his movements, like those of all elves, but where most elves you know remind you of a lively forest brook, this one is more like a great, slow and flat river in his movements.

'Greetings, Vlad Tepish, you are welcome to enter. I knew not that the ruler of the local... tribes... was a dragon,'

>'I am not. I became one seeking immortality.'
>'Well, I am. Please, let us proceed to the meeting.'
>'And I did not think you would ever get here. Seriously, how slowly could you walk,'

'There are many mysteries in this age that were absent in yours. But I am a dragon, as you say,'
'It is an honour to meet you then, Lord Tepish. And companions?' The elf says
'This is Lathrien, he was once my apprentice, but is now a solid wizard in his own right,'
'Greetings,' Lathrien says,
'This is Melandie, a close friend and my best ranger,'
'Hmpf, could you actually walk any more slowly?' Melandie says.
'A pleasure,' says the elf.
'And this is Amythrien, the craftsman and Elder of the elves in our Alliance,'
'Greetings, say, may I ask, about that force-field, I understand it was mostly magical in nature, but I have not seen such a powerful enchantment stay in place for any length of time, not without...'
'There will be time to discuss that and much more once we get inside. I am Valriel, the last survivor of my line, son of Valryn and Maliva. Please, follow me,'

The city is indeed impressive. For one thing it is unreasonably white. Aside from pure marble, there could be no other material of such intense whiteness, and yet, it is not marble, but some more glassy substance that makes up the great spires of this city.

The city is laid out mostly in a circular arrangement, and it grows taller as it approaches the center, with a grand spire, reaching three, four times higher than your tower. Some spires have glass windows, some have verandas and simple openings out into the open.

The roads are paved with very smooth cobbles of the same material as the spires themselves, but with veins of what appears to be pure gold running through them.

It takes your full force of will to avoid being impressed. And you do notice that very little grows here. The few green trees on the sides of the great promenades are clearly enchanted. They would not naturally grow with as little land as is allotted to each, and most certainly would not grow so uniformly, not even with a master gardener.

You are walking towards the center of the city, to the spire in the middle.

'I see. And what would you ask of us?'
'Oh, any old trinket will do, it is merely symbolic you see. But I am quite partial to books myself.'
'Ah, that can certainly be arranged. In fact...'

He reaches into his bag- it seems to be larger on the inside- and pulls out a leather-bound tome with golden filigree.

'The Element of Destruction, it is a beginner level tome, but it has some knowledge on pyromancy. I assume you could find use for it?'
'Ah, I've shown little talent for that particular school in the past, but it is a fine gift. In exchange, this cahvee maker.' You present him with Amythrien's device.

'Ah, yes, a cahvee maker. How delightful, thank you.'

Well there's nothing to it, it's probably fine. Maybe these elves just react to gifts differently than what you are used to.

>Wrong dice used one-time help from your friends.

'Hey, what's so fucking great about a fucking cohvee maker?' Melandie says.
'Sorry?'
'Why are you so freaking excited about a drink making machine?'
'Ah. Well, you see, we seem to have lost all of ours, and I am quite partial to the drink myself. Let me show you to your rooms. Truthfully, you can choose any- we can hardly inhabit a half of the spire by ourselves- but there are ambassador's quarters nearby that should be quite adequate.

You are led inside one of the buildings, and find a lot of red fabric on white glass. It looks absolutely regal, and the bedding is softer than anything you've slept on.

There is a large bath too, in a separate room, heated by either magic or natural hot springs, the water looks milky green against the everpresent white glass that the massive tub is made out of. It is steaming and smells faintly of lavender.

The only slight let-down is the food, mostly dried fruit and herbs, along with some rather badly cooked meat of some small and unassuming creature. You make certain to appear sufficiently impressed by it.

'Thank you, shall we reconvene in, say three hours?'
'Of course, Lord Tepish.'

As soon as he leaves Melandie shivers.

'Yeap, definitely watched by magic.' She says.
'Can you really tell?'
'Sure. Wait... I think it's only checking if we leave the room. Lathrien, with me, you two, out- we're taking a bath.'

You walk to the dining room, and share a meal with Amythrien. You get talking about magical theory and Amythrien is without a doubt the most knowledgeable man you've ever met on the subject, though he doesn't seem to be able to do any magic himself.

An hour passes by in a heartbeat and the two elves return very much refreshed.

'Hm? Let me think,'

Amythrien takes out his knife, and starts etching in calculations into the table first, then moves down onto the floor and back up onto the wall.

Half an hour later he says:

'Oh. Oh shit.'
'Shit? Fuck damn it you don't godsdamned fucking swear, elder,'
'Shit, shit shit. Er, Vlad, I think I might have... somewhat undersold, what the, er, cahvee maker is capable of making,'
'Speak up, man,'
'Well, everything,'
'Sorry, what?'
'The er, maker, can make anything. Any substance. I mean, without alterations it would have to be anything liquid, but... yeah, it can make anything with the correct application of magic. Cahvee just happened to be the default for this particular model,'
'Can you make another one?'
'I used some pretty rare materials. I mean, maybe. In another ten years.'
'You'd been working on it for ten years and were satisfied with it making cahvee?'
'It was nice cahvee!'

>"That’s what happens if you give experimental stuff to people. Let’s give priority to finding the resources to make another one and try to be friendly enough with the High-Elves that the resource is not wasted.
>>
'Amythien, please understand, that I believe that you are one of the most clever people currently alive when I say this,'
'Say what?'
'You're a fucking idiot. Nevermind. We should not be giving experimental stuff to people, from now on at least. Let us go ahead with the meeting.'
'There is still some time, I think,'
'I'm as rested and ready as I am going to be. Let us go. If we are watched they'll know we're coming.'
'Very good, Vlad Tepish. And I am sorry.'
'My own bloody fault. Shouldn't have given you a deadline.'
'Right. Let's go.'

You walk out towards the central tower. The dawn has broken, and the city looks even more beautiful by daylight. Lathrien is focusing very hard indeed to keep himself enveloped in shadows with his magic and it seems that whatever illusion he is weaving, it is good enough to trick sunlight, seeing as he isn't bursting into flames.

You approach the tower and knock on the door. The door is at least thirty feet tall, but you're too annoyed to be intimidated by architecture.

'Lord Tepish, it is still a half an hour until the allotted meeting time.'
'We are as fed and rested as we are likely to get today. We will wait here for your diplomats to arrive.'
'Fear not, they are already on their way. You may sit in the waiting room, or if you prefer, you can wait in one of our many sitting rooms,'
'Thank you.'
'We will call you once they are here.'

In less than ten minutes their diplomats arrive. You are brought into a room where a rectangular table made out of, you guessed it, white glass, awaits, with eight golden goblets filled with suspiciously fresh wine await.

'Please, take your seats,' Valriel says.

'Greetings, delegates. I am Vlad Tepish. Your return to this world has certainly shaken the status quo. Your people are of great interest to me,'
'Naturally. We will do our best to guide you fairly and honestly.'
'Pardon?'
'We recognize that you have come as supplicant to join our great Empire and to serve under us,'
Melandie snorts. She has a really good snort for a girl her size.
'You misunderstand my purpose here. Our Alliance is in a comfortable position. I am here to discuss trade and perhaps exchange knowledge, I am very interested in the war that brought an end to your people,'
'Mmyes, I doubt, however, that you, hmpf less advanced people of lower races could give us any knowledge in exchange.' One elf says.
'Quite, and if you refuse to join us willingly we will have to take your lands by force of course,' says another.

On the one hand, they know you're a dragon, clearly this is only supposed to test how far can they push before you snap. On the other, you are not accustomed to bending for anyone and you will certainly not take anyone threatening your people.

The ground begins to shake slightly. You merely touched the spirit of the earth here.

'Do not take me for a conjurer of a primitive tribe,' you say, calm at first.

The earth begins to quake in earnest. Light is sucked out of the room. And for good measure, supernatural dread fills the meeting hall.

'I will not be spoken down to.'

Glass cracks as a window shatters. Wind begins to howl.

'I will not be mocked when I come to deal in good faith.'

Your face turns at once into the Death's head and the snarling jaw of a dragon,

'And I will most certainly not have my people threatened with war and slavery,'

As Lathrien has seen how dramatic you get and how important this meeting is, this very moment, shadows fill the room to the brim and the warm dawn of a summers day is replaced by a cold and black night,

20. Some sort of Quadruple success!

All at once you cease the demonstration of your magical power and it is all as it was before. Not a single glass of wine was knocked over.

'Now, I believe I was asking you about the war,' you say.'

For a good fifteen seconds, you are met with nothing but pale faces in silence. Then Melandie snorts again, somehow even louder than before.

'Ah, yes, of course, Lord Tepish,' Valriel says, 'What exactly would you like to know?'
'Let us start at the beginning, shall we? How did it start?'
'A- Ah, well, before the war an unprecedented number of mighty wizards were-'
'I am familiar with the situation prior to the war, and the rough mechanics of how it concluded. I am interested in the underlying causes and in the reasons for escalation,'
'O- Of course. The thing you have to understand is that just about every other race was allied with each other to avoid war,'
'Except for the dragons,'
'Indeed, except for the dragons. They had no interest in preserving the peace.'
'Go on,'
'Well, our king at the time had a somewhat, er, low opinion on the les- I mean, on the other races. Relations got somewhat tense,'
'Pray continue,'
'Well, and so a son of his was sent as an envoy to a certain city of a certain human empire, where he was assassinated. Our king had the city burned in retaliation. Things... escalated.'
'Surely, such magics had been used in war before,'
'Quite, but they were also seen as rather illegal. To use such devastating spell on a civilian populace would have been seen as a terrible crime at any other point of our history, but as our king had ordered it, it had to be just.' Valriel said.
'Not all of us thought that. Our city knew what it would lead to, so we made the Dream Eternal. We awoke when your illusionist arrived' another says
'I understand. So, I assume the humans and others started using magic against you?'
'Yes, terrible magic. Shamanism, destructive beyond any other school, necromancy, foul and dreadful,

I heartell that some of them had even conspired with dragons to learn of their dark magics.'
You chuckle.
'No offense,'
'None taken,'
'And so it kept getting worse and worse. Any city without a force dome or an anti-magic field was in the risk of being destroyed. In a while the kobolds developed technological terrors that could bypass even anti-magic fields, so only the most powerful Conjurers could defend cities anymore. That is when we all went into the Dream Eternal.'

'There is one more thing, of course.' you say.
'Hm, what?'
'I shall be taking my gift back,'
'But surely, you cannot-'
'Vlad?' Lathrien says, 'A serious enchantment just got broken some three hundred meters underneath us,'

You rub your temples and make sure to only transform the shade of your eyes as you partially turn into your dragon form.

'Is there perhaps, some little thing you have been hiding from me?'
'N- No, I mean, th- the life support enchantments in the stasis prison should have been shut down before the last person entered Dream Eternal,'
'What. The Fuck. Are You. Talking About?' You say.
'Valriel, they were shut down, right?'
'I do not know, that task was far below me,'
'But you were the last to enter stasis,'
'Oh fucking goblin shit skull-fucking sword sodomizing shitting dick nippled cunt face FUCKS! Snap out of it and tell someone that can actually fucking do something about it what's wrong,' Melandie says.
'We did not have prisons, nor executions. They were thought to be barbaric to use against our own. Our worst criminals were kept in stasis. It seems that they have broken out.'
'Where?' you say.
'Under half a kilometer of rock and glass. There are no exits or entrances, but...'
'But what?'
'But, a good number of them were powerful wizards.'
'I'll deal with it. And I was fucking serious about the cahvee maker. It better be here when I return.'

'If anyone wants to see some REAL magic being cast, shut up, stand around ten feet away, and look suitably impressed. Melandie, Lathrien, stand next to me,' you say.
'Sure,'
'And Melandie?'
'Yeah, Vlad?'
'You kiss Lathrien with that mouth?'
'More than kiss, boss,'
'Yuck.'

This... is quite complex. Commanding spirits of earth is something you've been doing for most of your life, but lately you've been focusing on evocations, your ritual magic is weaker by comparison.

That said, you are twice the Shaman than... Well, you're twice the Shaman than anyone really. It feels good to be the best.

In five minutes a circle cracks around you in the glass. It starts slowly descending. You pick up the pace, placating and intimidating the spirits of the earth as you move downwards. In fifteen more minutes you are about to hit empty air, so you start moving the dirt and stone underneath you as you descend.

You are now in the elven prison.

You focus your own senses and you have Lathrien do the same. Melandie wanders off, searching in the more mundane way.

The first thing that hits you is death. You know you could bind most of the spirits that died here, they are so fresh, and there is nearly a hundred of them.

Then you start feeling living presences, addled somehow. You easily recognize powerful Enchantment at work, and know that there are some fifty people being controlled at the same time.

You also feel half a dozen healthy, if dark living presences, a few rooms over, the direction that Melandie went. Lathrien is clearly with you so far, as he rushes to catch up to Melandie.

You, however, feel something strange. There is a spirit, living, here. An elf, and, for the lack of a better word this spirit is absolutely pure. Not pure as the priest and paladins of Pern, that have all wickedness burned out of them with divine light, but like untarnished silver, never given into the temptation of evil.

As you reach the source of this spirit, you find a coffin, or more likely a holding cell, that has been recently tied with several layers of iron chain, padlocked thrice.

You are Vlad Tepish and you need no help to smite down evil.

You rush, without running towards where most of the prisoners seem to be gathered. You see the room, and as you enter you blast dragon-acid ahead of you, burning nothing, but drawing attention to yourself instead of your allies.

And there is nothing but complete darkness in the room.

Then, one of those elven salt-crystals lights up to reveal a nude and well built elf, with flowing black hair. He raises his hands to his sides and you feel the flow of magic.

Before you can strike, clothes start appearing on him, from the feet, conjuring up, white linen and cotton. As they reach his waist, he throws his hands out in earnest and turns towards you, and a snow-white fur collar forms around his deep-cut jacket.

He clenches his fists, throws something into the air and a dozen other salt-lights come into existence, illuminating the room fully.

At his feet, there are tens of women in various states of undress, touching his feet and legs with their hands.

'Ah! Vlad Tepish. Melandie has already told me so much about you,' he says, conjures an exquisite chaise-longue, and sits down on it. Melandie, blank look on her face stands behind him.

You think quickly, and search for a solid mental defence you could...

'Now, Vlad, good boy. Come on over.'
You walk towards your Master. It feels good to obey. You are his good slave.

You notice that under all the naked elven women there is a pile of dead elven men. How clever your Master is! How powerful.

He doesn't even need to ask you to kneel down and lick his feet, you just do it to please him.

'Now, Vlad, boy come here.' You do. It brings you such pleasure to obey.

'Now, kiss your friend Melandie on the mouth.'

Of course. You will do it. You will do it for Him.

Melandie leans a little closer to you. Her face is completely blank. She doesn't enjoy this. The Master is forcing her to do it. How could she not understand how wonderful it is to obey him.

You kiss Melandie deeply, with tongue, and she reciprocates.

You see a face, gaunt and completely filled with passive hatred. Lathrien stabs the Master in the kidney with a knife. You feel mad at Lathrien for a second, and then you feel absolutely shocked to be in Melandie's mouth. You pull back with such a force that you fall back, flat on the floor.

The room explodes in brilliant light and fifty nude women are attacking you with claws, teeth and fists.

In the fraction of second decision to stop the Mas- The Enchanter's escape or to save the life of these women, you choose to restrain these women to save their lives. You do notice Lathrien's presence leaving, and in truth with his very solid discipline he is the most likely to resist the enchantment magic.

You are just not all that certain that he can track Hi- him. Melandie is doing badly against a pack of feral women, and you make the dead elves hold the living women tight.

It works. You might be a dupe when it comes to resisting mind-control, but you are the greatest living necromancer. Mortal women could no more fight back against your undead than they could dig through solid stone to get out of here.

You regain your sight, and lose it soon after as the room has returned to absolute darkness.

'Never. Fucking. Speaking. Of. This.' Melandie says.
'Agreed.' you say.

You leave the room and rush to Lathrien. He's standing at a wall, staring at it enraged, though under complete control.

'Vlad Tepish, you will forgive me if I do not look at you right now. He is gone. I set a curse on his charms. No one will listen to his un-Enchanted word and all shall see him as uglier than sin. But he got away.'
'We'd be dead without you. We live to fight another day.'
'Can we leave this fucking place.'
'We have to decide what to do with the women.'
'They're all criminals like him. Just wipe this place out.'

'There are degrees of darkness, Lathrien. You know that like few others do,'
'Not in the mood for mercy, Vlad,' Lathrien says.
'Fuck your mood. The wrong choice doesn't become right because it's easier to make.'
Lathrien takes a deep breath.
'You are right. Of course. There is like fifty of them though. And I don't think all of them were enchanted.'
'No, they weren't.'
'So we can't just let them go. We have to fucking interrogate all of them. That's fifty people, all of whom could be lying. We'll be down here for months.'
'We'll see. There is a strange presence I felt here. I shall go investigate.'
'Suit yourself.'

You go to the thrice-locked coffin and open it. Within lies an elf in an armor of mirror-polished steel. His eyes are fully obstructed by his visor.

'I am free. I see darkness in you, but no true Evil. I felt Vaden escape. Your world is not ready for him. Release me to hunt him now or I will see you as an enemy to Justice.'

'Hold on, who are you?'
'I am Warden. I gave up my name when I became one. I sense I am the only one left. So that would make me The Warden,' the Warden says.
'How did you end up here.'
'I see taint. I see all darkness that poisons the souls of men. I saw that darkness in our king. I saw true evil in him. I went to arrest him, but the seething pit of corruption that our nobility had become declared me a traitor and imprisoned me here.'
'I think I understand. I will not stop you, though your quarry is already done. I merely ask you to understand that if you leave, we will have to interrogate the surviving prisoners one by one to see which ones are too dangerous to be left alive. Some might slip through our fingers. Worse, we may kill someone relatively innocent. Will you help us find out which ones deserve a second chance?'

'Thank you for that.'
'You have the bearing of a leader. Do you lead a nation or an army?'
'Both.'
'The elves of this late age seem to be even more corrupt and despicable than the ones I left behind. I would seek you out after my quest is done, if yet I live. Would you accept me in your nation?'

It'd be nice for lath take in these few elves. And gather any valuable secrets. Charm or if he has to turn them. These may all be powerful elves, either with knowledge of spell casters of some sort. Either way a nice addition with the pern war coming up. Lath could use more people to launch gorilla tactics with.

It is nasty business, but it has to be done. The Warden points out a dozen people total and you make their end painless. You rip out their souls and bind them to some beads of glass. Perhaps they might live on as homunculi one day, if you have the time to interrogate their spirits and learn which might be redeemed after all, if any.

And then the interrogations start. You still have thirty seven women to interrogate. You dress them- it seems they were undressed after being released, so there are plenty of plain clothes laying about- and bring them upstairs for interrogation and evaluation.

True to his word, the Warden leaves Southward as soon as he reaches the overworld, racing in the last known direction of the Enchanter.

Crits and Great Successes All Around! Fast and Thorough.

You start with mundane interrogations, but soon understand that as none of you have any training in the art, you need to look for alternate methods. Melandie alone finds the knack for it, shouting and swearing at elven women until they either admit their guilt or prove their innocence to her liking.

You and Lathrien quickly devise a more effective way, however. You meditate, and you forcibly bring the women into your trances. There Lathrien can see them for who they truly are.

It takes you less than a day to get through all of them. In the end, some twenty of them, a little more than half are an actual threat to society. You care little about theft, sedition and subversion of the state, but there are some murderers and serial killers among them, as well as a couple of war criminals, these are the twenty that you deem you cannot release into the world.

>Or, well, 'cannot' is a strong word. There are many monsters in this world already, adding these prisoners would hardly upset the balance of the world. Set everyone free.
>If they cannot live free then death is both easier and in the long run more merciful than constraints. Kill the worst of them, offer the rest to join you or leave.
>Conscript the worst of them as shock troops for the coming war. Let the rest of them choose to join you or to leave to fend for themselves.

'Death.' You declare without emotion.
You are damn good, but you are not tear out twenty souls in an instant good. You will have to execute them by hand.

Bloody work, and not easy in the least, but in an hour the white glass streets run with red blood and your work is done. You have added their bound souls to your collection, and they might one day be given the more comfortable prisons of bound artificial bodies. But for now, you are thankful you took along the bag of black glass beads with you, as you now carry thirty two souls with you.

'I know I have been a dark presence to you over this past day. I say to that, the people I executed were truly evil. That you are alive means that you are not irredeemable. Join me, and you might do some good in the world. Refuse, and you can go free about your business.'

Executing over thirty people is not the best build-up to a recruitment speech. You are not surprised that of the remaining seventeen only five choose to go with you. They are all skilled women, one of them a Conjurer of some significant skill in her own right, and another a legendary cat-burglar of her time. You would not exactly trust any of them with your life at this time, but you know that none of them would betray you.

You walk up to the High Elf leader.

'And I want my fucking cahvee maker back.'

You get it.

So what exactly is our relationship with them now? Their overlords?
>>
>>44574182
Essentially they are aware that they will have to beg for scraps in any trade agreement. Vlad will leave them to think about it until they realize how desperate their situation is.

That Warden fellow seemed to have it under control, and you didn't get this far holding on to grudges. You assume that the Enchanter is being handled, at least until you have any indication otherwise.

There are too many people now for you to carry on your back, so instead you raise and bind some of the wild horses abundant in these parts. In retrospect, perhaps they were not wild, but rather old elven breeds, survived on their own long after their masters abandoned them.

In any case, you ride back, and it takes but few days to return home, where the specter of war looms heavily over the populace.

Something has happened.

And that is where the Thirty Fifth Installment of the Feral Necromancer Quest concludes.

You have 1 exp to spend.

+1

Intelligence seems like the best choice for me, you've been steadily working up dat perk list. Not quite locking it in yet, but will at +1 vote, if no contender appears.

Any perk that the hivemind has decided on, or should I put up a twitter poll up again?

Note that Perks that refer to the Civilization turn will likely be reworked, as the Civilization rules get re-worked, but they should retain comparable or improved utility.

>>44574574
What tier are we on?
>>
>>44574465 (you)
>>44574574
Don't want Int right now but if it wins I'm voting for
Reasoned Argument: When using logic and reasonable arguments in a social situation, you gain an additional +1 to the roll. Furthermore, you produce 2 research points during Civilization turns, as you can keep your researchers to a civilized discourse.

>>44574604
Tier Three

Reasoned Argument: When using logic and reasonable arguments in a social situation, you gain an additional +1 to the roll. Furthermore, you produce 2 research points during Civilization turns, as you can keep your researchers to a civilized discourse.

Wizard: When using research to discover new spells during Civilization turns, you can learn two spells at the same time. Furthermore, all of your Channeling and Ritual checks critically succeed on a 19+.

Craftsman: When using Crafting skills (Alchemy, Smithing, Basketweaving, Others), you can produce ten items in the time that it would take a novice to produce one. Furthermore, you can attempt to craft Masterworks, which at this point will require a critical success.

Once that civilization comes in we will wreck shit.
We will get a some tech off the elves. and once we destroy the pernites we will steal all their tech for ourselves. We will be the most advanced kingdom to exist.

I'll check in on the archives tomorrow, so feel free to keep voting whichever way you want until the thread closes.

That said, Reasoned Argument seems to have a pretty strong majority and I'm going to sleep now.
