I find not even knowing the gender of the character we are playing confusing. Because this seems to be a social quest, not just that, but at a school setting.
So its actually rather important.

The chinse/japanese writing is just the character "Light" which is made up of the characters for "Sun;Day" "Moon;Month".

Though Moon and Sun would be more appropriate given the order of the dreams.

If you're timeskipping, please infodump more. We are currently in a position where Tracey can learn a lot about the world, herself, her enemies... all sort of things. All she has to do is ask. We as players would probably be content to keep asking random questions for a very long time, so if you're interested in keeping things moving rather than bogging down the thread with characters giving exposition on various topics you might consider freely answering questions about things that Tracey would reasonably know in here, while leaving the main thread focused on action.

If we timeskip and then run into a situation where we're clueless when Tracey would logically have been informed during the timeskip, it would be very frustrating.

55321

(The scales go Cantrip, Mage, Demigod, High God, each from D- to A+)

Tracy Char sheet (as of start of Oct in game, 5/26 out of game)
Traits:
Really Strong.
Doesn’t Tire Easily.
Really Lusty.
Slightly Crazy.
Slightly Clumsy.
Supernatural Sense of Smell.
Super Penis.

Magic:
Power Sources:
Demon Hunter (Tanaka line): Demigod Scale (C)
Tsukiyomi Magic: Demigod Scale (B)
Drain Shikigami: Mage Scale (C-) I could get some power from draining Foxglove..but that would put my baby is serious danger, and could endanger Foxglove too.

Ritual Magic: Novice
I only really know one real ritual, though Mom's taught me enough that I can power a ritual that Mom sets up. Its not a very safe thing to do though, as Mom has to basically hand off the spell to me, and its not unknown for spells to either explode, or change radically during that process.
If you are willing to go slow enough, and double check everything its not too bad, but doing so, at best, makes it take twice as long.

Known Rituals:

Bind Shikigami (Sex), this one is easy in a certain sense, because of what I am, a little will on my part and some sex and either my partners okay, or me raping them, and bound spirit.

I would rather not use the second ever..but it might be easier than killing some spirits.

Store Shikigami: This requires me making a paper doll and and then chanting quietly while writing Foxglove's name on it over and over again, and then willing her into it, slowly.

The black square is where I _don't_ write. Currently it takes me about an hour, Mom says she got to the point where she could do it in about 5 minutes, and one of the girls she fought beside could do in about 20 seconds.

Spells:

Banishment Chant: This one makes a ball of fire whose "light" hurts 'alien and dark creatures' unfortunately I count as such, and it takes too long to use in combat easily. (Mage Scale: A+, B damage to self. A+ damage to qualified foes in range. Powersource: Demon Hunter)

Quick Bolt: The second spell mom learned, this one just requires a quick thought once you have it trained. Produces a bolt of fiery light. (Mage Scale: C, Damage C, to single target. Can be used on environment, but doesn't reliably set fires. Powersource: Demon Hunter)

Lubricate: I can cast a spell to create sexual lubricant in my or Foxglove’s genitals. Not super useful as I do this anyway when lusty. (Cantrip Scale: C)

(Spells can be upgraded with study/better connection to power sources. Spells can’t get more powerful then their power source.)
>>
No. 55322 ID: fa537b

Marry:
Powersources:
Chosen of Amaterasu/Demon Hunter (Tanaka Line): Mage Scale (B+) ((A+ when she was the heir))

Traits:
Has magic stuff.
Knows combat shinto.
Desperate.
Lazy.
Lusty.
Decent at CQC.
Decently Coordinated. (I.e what DnD calls Dexterity)
Smart, good at math.
Knows about the supernatral.

Ritual Magic: Journey Man. Good enough to coble together new rituals out of the the ones she knows. Knows lots of them, especially ways to bind spirits, and enchant weapons.

Spells: Banishment (Mage Scale B), Fire ball (Mage Scale C+), Flame bolt (Mage Scale D), Hover (Cantrip Scale A), Magical Girl Transformation (Cant use).
>>
No. 55324 ID: fa537b

Marry:
Powersources:
Blood of the Irish (Cantrip/Human C)
Baptized (Cantrip D)

Traits:
Smart.
Good at people.
Knows about the supernatural.
Knows about American magic.
Protective.
Aggressive.
Handsome.

Ritual Magic: Initiate-. Can help marry, and can seriously hurt spirits if she has the time and resources.

Spells: See Fay (Cantrip C), Protect from Spirits (Cantrip D).

what exactly does being on the demigod end of the scale mean?

No. 55420 ID: c3a61c

>>55359
Uh..it means you can pull off spells that are pretty big deals.

Like Heracles had a Demegod A powersource. (Not usable for what we would think of as spells though..)

There are 1000 to 100,000 beings in the whole world with Demigod or higher power-sources.

Also Demigod level abilities start to affect the world in a narrative as opposed to scientific way. (Like scientificly, there's no way to get strong enough to pick up a mountain, cause it will just break into pieces..)

As long as it's relevant to what's happening at the time, and doesn't go on too long, it'll be fine.

Uh, also, could you combine your posts more? It's reading a bit like you're treating it like IRC at times. You can delete multiple posts, then combine them to make a single new post. There's an FAQ from the front page with instructions.

No. 55866 ID: 71d68e

To clarify furthermore, I read this quest for the characters and situation and such. There's plenty going for it without needing to go into in-depth sex scenes. It doesn't bother me if you do those, but I'd be fine with it if you didn't.

No. 55869 ID: b85f8c

I don't know if I should feel bad for you that you have suggesters that want to do that, or feel disgusted that you want to allow it.
>>
No. 55874 ID: 431fa8

>>55869
This is one of those things that makes a lot more sense in context. I don't think any of the suggesters really want it, but it feels like the most practical course of action when seeking to maximize the protagonist's power and minimize the harm done to them and others.

It's a little screwy that said context exists in the first place, but I'm not going to fight that. Not everything is or should be PR-friendly.

As far as writing out the sex scene, mostly that's relevant insofar as what the protagonist is thinking during it since that lets us keep an eye on their mental and emotional state, which ultimately is the center of what the quest is about. Considering their nature, skipping it entirely or glossing too much would make things somewhat more difficult. Up to the author, though, obviously.
>>
No. 55875 ID: 71d68e

>>55874
Yeah, the emotions and such're important, but the physical details not necessarily so much. It's a matter of what one chooses to focus ones writing on. In the end, I think our quest author should just find an approach that works for them.
>>
No. 55883 ID: a356c0

> Yeah, the emotions and such're important, but the physical details not necessarily so much.

That makes sense. I think I might summerise or elipse or something..

Its just I'm the type to like reading sex-scenes in quests..at least usually.

But writing this is just feeling unnecessary, like the rape..there exactly what she was feeling, even physically was important.

Now I just need to rewrite it to transition well.
