    I've been having trouble writing extended pieces, and a while ago Biigoh suggested that I try a quest. This is my first quest, and I hope it goes well.
    =====
    Your name is Theo Anders.

    And you're pretty sure that you're dying.

    Things had been looking up. Your father, Max Anders -CEO of MedHall- aka Kaiser -Leader of the neo-Nazi Organization Empire Eighty-Eight- had pretty much started ignoring you, and from the rumors around the building, was actively trying for children from your maternal cousins. Which freed up a lot of time to spend with Aster, your little half-sister, and her mother Kayden.

    Kayden... She was alright, still no replacement for your long dead mother, Heith, or your Aunt Sharon. But Aster was your light in the darkness, so innocent. And cute, despite the lingering period of time in which she looked like a water logged doll.

    Though, you muse as your life blood seeps out onto the floor, so would you if you had spent nine months in an aquatic environment. Also known as Kayden's womb. You kinda didn't want to think about you mother figure's vagoo, but she wasn't your biological mother and she was girl-next-door-is-a-lingerie-model level of beautiful, if you were honest with yourself.

    You had also started making some inroads on getting close to the girl you liked. Sure, Gwen was a Nazi, sure, she was Rune, but she had run away from her parents in a bout of teenage rebellion, and you didn't disagree with everything your father espoused(It helped that, much like your father, leggy athletic blondes really did it for you, with petite yet incredibly hot brunettes as a close second). You had been toning down Gwen's blatant racism and making arguments for simple folkism. And her Uncle James, aka Krieg, was encouraging the relationship as it would tie his family into the Imperial one.

    All of that considered, you're not sure if you would consider that as heartwarming and, well, good, as knowing that without a doubt your father loved you. Actually cared about you. Was somewhat proud of you. Sure, he wished that you were a bit more athletic and masculine, but you were quite the scholar, and he could find no fault in that.

    Of course, he was babbling this to you in between screaming in absolute desperation for Victor and Othala to come heal you and for someone to call 911. And praying to the Christ-God or any of the Old Gods that might listen. Personally you hoped that Ullr (the Glorious One, who watched over quiet acts of glory, you think that you might qualify), Tyr (Lord of Swords, God of Valor, and the Lawgiver, certainly it was valorous to stand against hate) might take notice of you if the Christ-God didn't, otherwise you hoped that the Lady Hel would welcome you warmly to Helheim.

    You had gotten into a fairly intellectual debate with your father, something of a rarity, but made a misstep somewhere and he exploded in rage, resulting in two blades piercing your chest.

    Anyways, you didn't want to die with the knowledge that your father loved you, and the Gwen might go out on a date with you if you asked her. Might! You wanted to experience that date. With any luck experience what happens after good dates with appreciative girls! You were going to fight this petty thing called dying.

    And now you were getting cold, and the world greyed out. You were losing to Death.

    "Do you wish to live, Theodore Anders? A gift looks for a return, Theodore Anders. Would you trade away your name for power and service?"

    A voice spoke out in the greyed out world, shadows coalescing into a shape reminiscent of -

    [] The Pope - The Bishop of Chalcedony Thurible

    [] An *ahem* irreverently dressed, beautiful beyond words woman that happen to hit all of your buttons. If there was enough blood in your body to support such a thing, you would be physically aroused. - The Lover Clad in the Raiment of Tears

    [] A huge man clad in spiked armor - The First and Forsaken Lion

    [] An ethereally beautiful (black) woman clad in a feathered cloak with a bird's head as a hood. Is she the shadowed half of Lady Hel? -The Princess Magnificent with Lips of Coral and Robes of Black Feathers aka the Black Heron

    ======

    Let's all hope this goes well. I think it might be nice to have some outside 'help' like this. Though I'm no Gromweld or a Sojiko or even a Tanuki. :oops:

    • First Rule of Theo Anders and the Black Exaltation! This is for fun, for me, for you, for your dog.

      Rule jr.: This is currently still a SFW quest. While sex, gore, torture, and other such things will be joked about, mentioned, etc., it should never be particularly explicit or receive undue amounts of time to dwell on those subjects. Follow QQ rules on this. If my writing has strayed over the board rules, let me know. If we can't contain our lusts and we must slake them, I'll see about getting the quest moved to the appropriate NSFW section.

      Rule in the 3rd: Be polite! QQ is a pretty chill board, so I don't expect it to be a problem.

      Rule the IV: Narrative is King. This is far more an exercise in interactive storytelling than one in storytelling and mechanics. Not everything is going to get a roll, sometimes Theo will get an auto succeed or an auto botch, other times I will actually break out 13d10 and roll each one.

      The Fifth Ruling: XP gains! All XP gained for a snip will be posted at the bottom of the snip, and Theo's banked/earned XP will be listed on his sheet.
      -Each non-worldbuilding snip is, after 'The Offer,' given 2-6 XP based off of length and content. An example: A short snip where something major happens would earn 3 or 4 XP as would a longer snip where nothing really happens, but the story is moved a little bit along. A 6XP post is going to likely be fairly lengthy and have several major things happening in it. A post will always earn at least 2xp.
      -Omakes/Fanart are worth .5, 1, or 1.5 xp depending on the quality and length
      -Completion of Milestones. The number of posts, length of those posts, and the difficulty of completing the milestone will decide how much Milestone XP you get.
      -Train-then-Spend is the ruling on spending XP.

      The Sixth Circle of Rules - The majority of my work comes out of the 2e core book, MoEP:Abyssals, and CoCD:Underworld with some things taken from Shards of the Exalted Dream: Modern. However, charms can come from Glories: UCS, Dreams of the First Age, Thousand Correct Actions (Don't have will, need relevant charm if proposed), Ink Monkeys, and the 2.5 Errata in addition to anything coming out of the Core Book, Abyssals manual, and Shards. Sorcery/Necromancy comes from White/Black Treatises + 2.5 Errata. Anything (Homebrew) else must be approved. Revlid's craft and mutations have been approved.

    • Name:The Dark Prince (Formerly Theo Anders)
      Caste: Moonshadow
      Essence: 3
      Personal Motes: 10/15
      Peripheral Motes: 33/38

      Affiliation: Empire 88
      Costume: Winged and Armored Knight, medieval theme
      Gang Tag: Similar to our caste mark, but the ring is replaced subtly with a serpent devouring itself around a dot.

      Anima: A majestic, many winged, beautificaly robed woman with a reptilian bird skull helm
      A single disc of absolute darkness floated in absolute perfection, a gaping maw into the void of oblivion, while a ring of energetic dark light spun clockwise around the disc. The bleeding had long stopped when the icon of negative energy had formed over the stigma.

      Shimmering waves of translucent darkness flowed off of the Dark Prince like an elegant noble robe of energy with silver highlights. While seething black orbs swirled slowly and purposefully around him as of planets around their sun, a miasma of almost black dark purple and silver sparkles trailed behind them.

      And yet, he spent more essence. Pulling at the very fabric of reality, denying its existence, and his aura only grew, forming an ever elaborate robe around him. While the orbs of darkness only multiplied...
      Eventually, reality was rent... and the heavens darkened. One could still see perfectly... and yet, it was as if the very sun and all sources of light had been eclipsed.

      While behind the Dark Prince, a majestic lady stood towering over him. She was dressed as he was, in flowing robes of darkness and glittering silver, a halo of absolute darkness floated above her head, while wings fluttered from her back, countless wings with feathers of infinite darkness and depth. There was a sense that she saw all, despite her eyes being covered by the reptilian bird skull that she wore as a helm.
      Resonance: 4/10
      Doom: Doom of the Scorched Heart
      The Abyssal’s heart becomes as a burnt stone in his
      chest. He neither feels nor expresses emotion—in his actions
      he seems not robotic, but simply dead inside. He effectively
      has no Intimacies while this Doom is in effect, and considers
      only efficiency when selecting a course of action. This lack
      of tact also imposes a -2 internal penalty on all Social rolls.

      Duration: (Essence) days.

      Trigger Condition: The character’s emotions lead him
      into a course of action he regrets.
      Willpower: 6/6
      Motivation: "The Dark Prince is but a young abyssal. Thus, his goals are smaller in scope. To destroy those who would stand in his way, who would harm Kayden and Aster, Fenja and Menja, Rune, and all the other sweet pussy he would tap in the Empire."
      -Mission: Build a government independent knowledge and power base.

      Charms:
      Excellencies: Melee (1st, Infinite, Ravening Mouth), Presence (2nd)
      First (Ability) Excellency
      Cost: 1m per die; Mins: (Ability) 1, Essence 1; Type: Reflexive
      (Step 1 for attacker, Step 2 for defender)
      Keywords: Combo-OK
      Duration: Instant
      Prerequisite Charms: None

      The Exalt’s player can invoke this Charm when
      making a roll based on the relevant Ability. This Charm then
      adds one die to that roll for each mote spent. Cannot add more dice than
      Attribute + Ability)
      Second (Ability) Excellency
      Cost: 2m per success; Mins: (Ability) 1, Essence 1; Type:
      Reflexive (Step 1 for attacker, Step 2 for defender)
      Keywords: Combo-OK
      Duration: Instant
      Prerequisite Charms: None

      The Exalt’s player can invoke this Charm when
      making a roll based on the relevant Ability. This Charm
      adds one success to a roll for every two motes spent. Each
      success purchased with Essence Triumphant is the equivalent
      of purchasing two dice with the First Excellency or some other
      dice adder.
      Infinite (Ability) Mastery
      Cost: 2m+, 1wp; Mins: (Ability) 4, Essence 3; Type: Simple
      Keywords: None
      Duration: One scene
      Prerequisite Charms: Any (Ability) Excellency

      Each two motes
      committed to this Charm reduces the mote cost for the first three
      (Ability) Excellencies by one, to a minimum of 0. Exalted with
      Essence 3 can spend up to six motes on this
      Charm, while Exalted with Essence 4+ can
      spend as many motes as they like.

      Apply the discount to the total expenditure
      on Excellencies relating to a given roll. A character
      who spends motes on the Comboed effects of the
      First and Second Excellencies does not receive the
      discount for the use of both Excellencies on a given
      roll. If the example character activated a Combo
      and spent four motes to buy two successes on a roll
      with the Second Excellency and four motes to
      buy four dice using the First Excellency, the cost would
      be five motes ([4 + 4] – [3 for the six motes committed to the Infinite Melee Mastery]).

      This Charm and the relevant discount are incompatible
      with any effect that invokes the effects of Excellencies as innate
      powers rather than as Charms. A character must have
      the Excellency in order to invoke it at a discount through the
      use of this Charm.
      Ravening Mouth of (Ability)
      Cost: 3m; Mins: (Ability) 4, Essence 3; Type: Reflexive
      Keywords: Combo-OK
      Duration: One scene
      Prerequisite Charms: Any (Ability) Excellency

      Whenever the deathknight takes an action or
      activates a Charm using the chosen Ability, he regains one
      mote for every level of damage the action or Charm inflicts
      to sentient beings as if he had bitten the victims directly. If
      multiple Ravening Mouth of (Ability) Charms could apply
      in a situation, the Abyssal may use only one. Indirect damage
      to that target also awards motes, such as health levels
      paid as part of the costs of defensive Charms. Ravening
      Mouth Charms exist for Archery, Martial Arts, Melee and
      Thrown. Abyssals cannot use this Charm to feed through
      the effects of spells.

      Note that ongoing damage after the initial action or
      Charm (such as from poison) do not award further motes.
      In addition, the Abyssal can never gain more than 20 motes
      during a single one of her actions from any combination of
      Charms including Ravening Mouth of (Ability).

      Melee(F):
      Blade Summoning Gesture (Errata'd)
      Cost: —(1m); Type: Permanent
      Keywords: Merged, Mirror (Call the Blade), Obvious
      Duration: Permanent

      The Abyssal may reflexively spend one mote to activate this
      Charm as described. He may only call his blade from up to (Essence
      x 2) yards away while in battle, however.
      Merged: Hungry Missile Technique (Thrown).
      Resplendent Shadow Blade (Errata'd, keeping TDP's first blade)
      Cost: 3m, 1wp or 5m, 1wp; Mins: Melee 4, Essence 3; Type: Simple
      Keywords: Combo-OK, Emotion, Mirror (Glorious Solar
      Saber; Exalted, p. 192), Obvious
      Duration: One scene
      Prerequisite Charms: Blade-Summoning Gesture

      The Essence of the Abyssal manifests in a weapon formed
      of Essence-hardened shadows adorned or intertwined with
      corpse-elements. This blade inflicts aggravated damage to
      creatures of the Wyld and slightly dims any light brought near
      it. The Exalt can summon this weapon to her hand from anywhere
      it has fallen, as a diceless, miscellaneous action.
      The character defines the form of her weapon upon purchasing
      this Charm. Statistically, the weapon has traits equal to
      single or paired basic 1, 2 or 3-dot close-range soulsteel artifact
      weapon (such as a daiklave, grimcleaver, or direlance) of
      the player’s choice. Paired 1-dot weapons or a singular 2-dot
      weapon costs 3m. Paired 2-dot weapons or a single 3-dot weapon
      costs 5m. “Brawling aides” such as smashfists are not valid
      forms.

      Players wishing to have multiple options may purchase this
      Charm a number of times equal to their character’s Melee
      score, creating a different weapon with each purchase.
      If the character possesses an Overdrive pool, she gains one
      offensive mote to that pool each action while she is wielding
      Resplendent Shadow Blade. The character must be in battle to
      benefit from the one mote drip. She may only benefit from one
      drip from weaponry at a time.

      Additionally, this Charm may be purchased a second time to
      upgrade all weapons that may be created through Resplendent
      Shadow Blade, granting them the benefits detailed on page 130
      of Manual of Exalted Power—The Abyssals
      -The Dark Prince's Shadow Blade: Massive "Buster" Sword of solid shadows (Speed 5; Accuracy +2; Damage +6L; Defense +2; Rate Infinite.)

      Presence(F):
      Dread Lord's Demeanor
      Cost: 7m; Mins: Presence 4, Essence 3;
      Type: Reflexive (Step 2)
      Keywords: Mirror (Majestic Radiant Presence; Exalted, p.
      204), Obvious, Social
      Duration: One scene
      Prerequisite Charms: Any Presence Excellency

      The Abyssal cloaks himself in the grim shadows of death,
      so only the bravest, strongest-willed or most determined
      dare attack him.

      (Relevant Mirror Text)
      This Charm intimidates others, negating
      any physical or social attack made against the Solar unless the
      attacker’s player succeeds on a reflexive resistance roll.

      "a difficulty 2 Willpower roll is the appropriate
      form of resistance."

      The attacker need succeed only once per
      action, no matter how many attacks she makes during a flurry.
      This Charm’s effects are a form of unnatural mental influence,
      and characters can spend three Willpower to resist the effects
      of Majestic Radiant Presence for a scene.
      Heart-Stopping Mien
      Cost: — (1wp); Mins: Presence 5, Essence 3;
      Type: Permanent
      Keywords: Obvious, Social
      Duration: Instant
      Prerequisite Charms: Dread Lord’s Demeanor

      This Charm augments its prerequisite. An Abyssal
      can add this effect by spending one Willpower when
      she activates Dread Lord’s Demeanor. Anyone who
      can bring himself to attack the deathknight suffers a -2
      internal penalty and suffers a number of dice of unsoakable
      lethal damage equal to the Abyssal’s Essence for
      his presumption.

      Athletics(F):
      Raiton's Nimble Perch
      Cost: 3m; Mins: Athletics 1, Essence 2; Type: Reflexive
      Keywords: Combo-OK, Mirror (Graceful Crane Stance;
      Exalted, p. 222)
      Duration: One scene
      Prerequisite Charms: None

      Deathknights move like the ghosts they lord over, stepping
      lighter than a bird over all obstacles.

      (Relevant Mirror Text)
      This Charm lets the Exalt automatically succeed on any valid
      Athletics action to keep his balance. Moreover, this Charm
      allows the Exalt to keep his footing on any surface at least as
      strong and wide as a human hair. He treats it as a three-footwide
      ledge capable of supporting a thousand pounds of weight
      when determining what movement and Athletics actions he
      can take and what penalties to them might apply.

      Linguistics(C):
      Scathing Cynic Attitude
      Cost: 3m; Mins: Linguistics 1, Essence 1; Type: Reflexive
      (Step 2)
      Keywords: Combo-OK, Mirror (Sagacious Reading of Intent;
      Exalted, p. 233), Social
      Duration: Instant
      Prerequisite Charms: None

      Constantly surrounded by the overwrought melodramas of
      the restless dead and jaded by the lies within lies of their Deathlord
      masters, Abyssals become exceedingly difficult to trick.

      (Relevant Mirror Text)

      This Charm identifies
      the motivation behind a given statement that the Exalt reads
      or hears—a one-sentence summary of what the person making
      that statement hopes to gain. If the Exalt invokes this Charm
      to defend against a social attack and the attacker’s purpose is
      fundamentally hostile to the Exalt or the Exalt’s Motivation,
      this Charm perfectly negates the attack.

      Socialize(C):
      Exquisite Etiquette Style
      Cost: 1m; Mins: Socialize 2, Essence 1;
      Type: Reflexive (Step 1 for attacker, Step 2 for defender)
      Keywords: Combo-OK, Mirror (Mastery of Small Manners;
      Exalted, p. 239), Social
      Duration: Until next action
      Prerequisite Charms: None

      Abyssals are horrid monsters full of lies and cruelty, but that
      is no excuse for bad manners. As Moonshadows must remind
      their circlemates, sometimes courtly elegance and sophistication
      can ruin more lives than all the swords in the world.

      (Relevant Mirror Text)
      This Charm makes her responses to social situations
      so natural and appropriate that in social combat she treats all
      enemy groups as one point of Magnitude smaller than they are
      (to a minimum of 0.) It also increases her effective Appearance
      by one dot. When in doubt, other characters will be more apt
      to do small favors and provide hospitality than not. Finally,
      this Charm ensures that the character understands the basic
      motivations of everyone present in the scene, as if her player
      had rolled three successes on a mundane Investigation roll to
      estimate each person’s motives.

      Train-then-spend for XP.

      These are training times(Thanks to SwiftRosenthal for putting to paper what I couldn't quite formulate):
      5 hr = 1 training day
      6 days = 1 week
      5 weeks = 1 month
      3 months = 1 season
      5 seasons = 1 creation year

      Then:

      1 training week = 30 hours
      1 training month = 30 days = 150 hours

      Also: MoEP: Abyssals states that Abyssals must double their training time outside of the Underworld. Fuck that noise. Fuck it long. Fuck it hard. Obviously a ploy to shoe-horn Abyssal campaigns into playing in and out of the shadowlands/underworld instead of out in Creation sword-punch-sploding people where they least expect it.

    Well, Princess Magnificent is a huge no on grounds of we don't want to be attached to that trainwreck. Bishop's a huge fanatic which can be tricky. That leaves FaFL and Lover. I like the social path more than military.

    Lack of Eye and 7 Despairs is saddening though.

    I considered Eye and 7 Despairs as an option, but already listed out four options. And he seems pretty dedicated to his revenge fantasies and not to the mission of exploring (and killing) the place that does not stop showing up in the Well of Udr.

    Could someone familiar with MOEP Abyssals summarize each of these options? I get that we're choosing a Deathlord patron, but I generally only break out that splat when I'm looking for the text to a mirror charm. :oops:

    Pretty much what the description gives....

    The Bishop of Chalcedony Thurible << Religious Fanatic the likes of which not even God would want.
    The Lover Clad in the Raiment of Tears << You're not going to die a virgin. Also... has hidden plans NO ONE expects.
    The First and Forsaken Lion << You're a SOLDIER now, best act like one. Also... is so wanting be out of his shell and fuck the next choice.
    The Princess Magnificent with Lips of Coral and Robes of Black Feathers aka the Black Heron << Fucked up enough times that her bosses shackled her to First and Forsaken Lion. You will have ZERO support and people will be wanting your exaltation and not YOU.

    Considering Theo's thoughts on Rune and Kayden The Lover Clad in the Raiment of Tears seems to be the best option.

    For some reason I just love the idea that Kaiser killed/almostkilled Theo by accident.

    I dropped those thoughts in there because I figured that a relatively spoiled TEENAGER HIGH ON ALL SORTS OF HORMONES (SEXSEXSEXSEXSEX) *ahem* That wasn't yelling merely the force of the hormones pushing against Theo's thoughts as he lay dying. I figured that any teenager left with some kind of time period to contemplate their own violent death would (especially the virginal ones) go 'damn, I never got a chance to hit that.'

    There's a reason why I think Theo would make an awesome anime harem protagonist. He's got Kayden, his twin cousins, and Rune.

    Huh, so this is a thing.

    Hmmm, Death Pope is a hell no. Same for the grand fuck up that is the Princess.

    As I recall the Lover has this issue that she's nearly as fucked up as Adorjan, ie excessive hedonism until you're sick of it. No thanks.

    FaFL, well the worst I can recall about him is that he wants to blow up Gem. Then again it's been awhile since I've read up on Abyssals let alone the Deathlord.

    So [X] FaFL

    As a note; The Lover Clad in the Raiment of Tears has supernatural social-fu and all the Abyssal social charms (and some she probably made herself) at her disposal, and loves toying with the hearts of those under her command. Do we really want to have her messing with Theo's head?

    Edit: Princess Magnificent would probably be my second choice.

    Yay for sexy mentor, though if Princess Magnificent really is "black" then picking her would be a hilarious way to say "fuck you dad".

    I don't know anything about Exalted, so I'm just going to go with the option that sounds like it will get Theo laid.

    Just a reminder this is in the SFW quest section and an FYI I don't really do sexy time scenes very well. So while Theo will get laid if you guys want him to (irregardless of his liege or even appearance. I would find a way for specific protagonist and Theo to meet if that was what it took, she (I subscribe to spec protag is Madison who has major body issues and super kinks) has a temperence flaw when it comes to case 53s necrophillia and guro) unless you guys write a bunch of dirty naughty omakes...

    Basically, you could choose any leige and Theo would get laid if that's how the quest goes. And it'll happen off screen/fade to black unless omaked. And I'll need a headsup or enough people wanting that so I can get the thread moved.

    I chose to do my first quest on QQ cause the community on this board while kinky seems like a bunch of alright peeps and are pretty active. Not because I wanted to do a porn quest.

    Also I intend to close voting before I go to bed tonight around 10 pm est.

    Plan get Theo a Nazi harem is a GO! I should probably read the Abyssal book before taking part of such an important decision, but what's the worst that could happen?
