Notes on Rolls and Voting:

When I request rolls, each set of three rolls counts for one action. For example, a two-step plan would take the first 6 linked rolls. A particularly bad failure can stop your plans early.

When rolling 1d100, I will consider criticals within the first ten linked rolls. Only criticals that occur in the first three rolls will be counted as "supercrits". This is still the case even if you'd have plan long enough to require more than ten rolls.

When I roll 1d20, the rules are the same, but I only consider criticals for the first five rolls, rather than ten. Criticals in the first three are still "supercrits".

When a plot choice results in extensive debate, I'll try to weed out the most popular trains of thought, and then call a vote on them. When voting, please respond with only a link back to the post and the number corresponding to your opinion. Other votes are discounted.

Finally, note that this is not a democracy; it is a benevolent dictatorship.

Recent Events Summary:

You have found all of your shards, and, in a lucky turn of events, met with and allied yourself with the Black Lady. She seeks peace and reconciliation with the rest of the world, and, after extensive discussion, you were able to gain Auriel's support on the matter.

It turns out that she is in fact the same Melody that took the Staff of Winds from Xile. Aside from you, only Auriel knows the full truth of her origins and personal history with Yi Fang, leader of Archon.

While mysteries still await you at Erebus's residence out in the Void, you decided that you had to go after Adavan, Obis, and Freja. With the prophecy hanging over Obis's head, you have to stick by him on a mission as risky as a trip to Aurora, the ancient isle of Leviathan and his followers.

You arrived at Aurora, and managed to slip out of the jaws of a trap. You met with Adavan, who told you that despite attaining the key he sought, Obis had gone back into the depths of the island to rescue Freja from the resident demon.

You found Obis and Freja down for the count and about to be eaten. You managed to free them and defeat their captor - but it turned out it wasn't alone...

Surprised but pleased with your quick defeat of your foe, you rush over to Obis and Freja. It's a simple matter for you to slice them free of their icy cocoons. As soon as they're released from their bonds, the life returns to their eyes. Freja slumps, unconscious, but Obis rolls over, coughing and hacking.

The prince gets to his knees and glances up at you. "...Shadow?"

<The one and only.>

"Well fuck Logi and his mother. I am happy as shit to see you. Did you get all of them?"

<...all of them?>

Obis looks past your shoulder. "...uh oh."

You turn about.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mbVivq7ExWo

Three more identical ice demons are standing at the other end of the room, blocking the passage out.

You quickly decide that a weakened Obis and an incapacitated Freja need to be moved out of harms way. You quickly throw them into your Pocket.

>mana: (34/58)

Meanwhile, the demons are quick to surround you! Two of them come at you from either side, one forming a sword of ice, the other a spear. The third demon lingers behind them, preparing a magical spell.

Can we try to solve the city 002 situation soon?
We've ignored it for over 50 threads, and they are extremely powerful and purpose driven. We know their positions as enemies with us, and not allies with anyone else we know of, based on their interactions with the excavation and our pre-teleport Haven citizenry.

This puts them in the landmine league up there with what I said before about who does or doesn't know about our plan to free Hectate. We know they are reacting to specific events related to their goals, and that they must have a significant underground network by now, and they're after powerful Dynamos [such like Nyxystix has], and seem to go with a violent course of acquiring them.
From that I think we need to find a solution or vet them very soon, because they're not allies with anyone and AFAWK nobody but us and our companions/Haven know of their existence, and only we can really deal with them and their goals and the countries of the world at large are completely ignorant of them and would be utterly unprepared for being attacked, all of these things make them a very extreme kind of wild card that we need to address in some way.

We do also know from before about a larger goal to remain out of war, but I don't feel that is something reliable enough to base the fates of these nations, Haven, and our companions on, especially because as long as it isn't classified as "war" they're okay with it, like attacking pre-teleport Haven and the excavation and who knows who or what else. This is why I think remaining so ignorant of their movements as a whole seems reminiscent of how we ignored the Kelvere situation, though we had very specific priorities there were consequences for that. Dire consequences for Duke V.

I'm sure we've missed our chance to make an advantage out of them, and their level of technology far exceeds everything everyone else has, and they've been very antagonistic in achieving their objectives,-

-so they'll be openly hostile while we try to do anything with them, overprotective of their resources and location, and are very likely to not even consider letting us leave alive if we find out where their city is hidden.
So I would recommend stealth if we manage to pinpoint their location so we can get as much info as we can from them without fighting openly because given what they've told us we know there is a form of central consensus that they refer to and with how steward and others would "magi beam" for info.
And it would be to our advantage to find that.

I've also been thinking about how we deal with Kan-Abar a bit more. The bold and risky idea that I have been thinking of is... going into Kan-Abar. Alone. But stealthed, and for gauging their situation/palace/defenses. But without interfering in anything, all just to gain information that the Alliance can use, something that can form an accurate attack plan for Auriels small strike force idea so it's not worthless, and info that will allow us to better convince the war council of Obis's rightful kingship and generally anything that would better convince everyone of our competence in this issue.
As right now we have Auriels woefully dangerous distraction & strikeforce plot and very little idea of how it would actually be best to go about it. And no, we don't have to tell our companions that we're going there, because we know how they would react to it, and frankly we can't risk them.
Another sidejective in this vein is touching a mana pool that is within Kan-Abar, or scouting for one that isn't utterly defended 100% of the time. I don't feel the need to extrapolate on what kind of advantage that can give everyone.

I've also been thinking more about my maybe risky suggestion of having the Black Lady & Fang meet before the war council, and I think it would be good if we take Ila to meet her, and maybe another person as well. Having more of our companions actually know her, and her know them.

My bad, it was a mistype.

That's all I can think of for now but the city 001/002 situation seemed paramount while the scouting Kan-Abar idea is for an advantage to our alliance allies and friends-meet-melody is for BL-Melody to know what kind of company we keep, and get them to trust her. Though that won't be easy at all.
This time I'm not sorry for sperging because god damn it I suggested to ignore city 002 over trivial things a while ago and I know it can't end well...

The spirit-shock of terror explodes out from you, echoing through the room - and the power stops the two demons cold! Their weapons fall from their hands, melting back to slush.

The third demon's spell unravels as it falls backward, stunned. In a moment, your wraps of spirit are upon it, slipping around and binding its arms and legs up tight.

>mana: 10/58
>(Maker) - Broken

With the demon at a distance dealt with, your stretch your shadow. It darts across the ice-covered ground, silent, but sure. In a moment, you make contact with the shadows the demons cast on the ground - and you have them. You can feel their limbs as if they're you're own, move them with just a thought.

You move them toward yourself, and your maw opens up to greet them. You swallow them whole - and with their shadows bound, they can't even struggle as you dissolve them into their component magical parts.

>you gain 14 experience (19 total)
>you gain 5 mana (15/58)

A sliding of ice on ice grabs your attention. The third demon is still bound up, but it has its arms free. It works frantically with its ice, sawing at your binds of spirit.

You roil over the helpless demon. It struggles harder. You silence it quickly, and its power is yours.

>you've gained 7 EXP (26)
>you've gained 3 mana (18/58)

And with that, your enemies are swiftly dealt with. Clearly they weren't expecting a foe of your caliber. Or maybe you're just that much stronger...you've struggled for so long, it's a strange thought.

You glance around the room, ensuring the space is safe. All is silent. But a heavy magic still lingers in the air.

You press your senses harder. Something is definitely still there...lurking. The master of the demons and spiders?

For now, it's leaving you alone.

You walk out of the room and down the hall. As you go, the patches of ice shrink and melt away, until you return to the oddly heated courtyard, scarred with the ash of burned city-dwellers. The room is as quiet as a grave. In a way, it is a sort of graveyard.

It reminds you of when you met Abigail, in that graveyard...it feels like a lifetime has passed since then. You wonder how she's doing. Fang wouldn't let anything happen to her, certainly. But...you miss her.

You continue through the ruins out the way you came, not wanting to take any further risks until your allies are safe.

The presence watches you, but makes no move to stop you.

You reach the underwater gap between the entrance to the ruins and the sunken elevator you used to descend into the ruins - but the elevator is destroyed! Icy stalagmites have pierced and pummeled the stone to rubble. The mechanism that controls it is gone.

The giant fish still swims through the area, but it hasn't noticed you, at the moment.

You slip into the water, intending to get by the fish without incident. You don't want trouble - at least, not for the moment.

The ruined towers make good cover. You Ink and slither through the coral that has grown up among the stone, and then slide further along the backside of tall pinnacle. The fish now circles the chasm far below, and, confident you're out of sight, you begin to swim toward the surface in earnest.

Aurora's main island creates a huge shadow in the water. You aim for where the walls stretch out in a half-circle, the bay where you left Adavan.

The water is cold - ice cold. Still, that doesn't slow your progress.

But it gets colder still.

Suddenly, ice crystallizes from the water around you! Shards of it swarm in around you, attempting to trap you in an enclosing sphere!

As the daggers of ice close in, you twist your aura into a screw and spin. The quick burst of speed is dizzying, but gives you enough time to get out before the trap closes around you.

But more ice quickly forms, sweeping in from all directions! As long as you're surrounded by water, you're at a huge disadvantage. You swim as fast as you can, barely keeping pace with the crystallizing ice. It comes at you in sheets, spikes, falling from above as stalactites, but you keep one step ahead.

You blast free of the surface in a spray of water. A column of ice follows you up into the air, then recedes as you beat your wings and gain enough speed to leave it behind.

You see the Firebird off at the end of the bay, close to where the snowstorm is held on the outside of the island's natural magic. You make for it as fast as you can, and dump yourself on the deck, drenched and covered in frost.

Adavan scurries down the stairs from the upper deck. "Shadow! Are they alright?"

You retreat your friends from your pocket. Obis and Freja appear next to you. They appear unharmed.

Obis puts a hand on his chest and exhales. "Oh, Logi. Thank you." He actually bends over and kisses the deck of the ship. "I'm sorry I said I'd fuck your mother." His gaze finds you. "Shadow, where the hell were we just now? It was just black, everywhere. Couldn't hear, couldn't see. I couldn't even feel Freja. I thought something had gone wrong. Felt like I spent a day in there."

<Sorry about that. It was just a safe space I can create. Didn't mean to frighten you.>

"Right." He looks to Freja, and his relief turns to concern. He places a light hand on her neck. "...steady pulse." He leans close to her. "I can hear her breathing .I think she'll be alright."

>con't

>> No.28201406

Adavan pushes Obis aside. "Let me check her over for anything nasty that might have come along. And you too, afterward. That demon wasn't - "

"Demons, actually," Obis says.

"There was more than one?!" Adavan shakes his head, then looks at you. "Good thing you got here when you did, Shadow."

A cracking sound echoes over the silence of the bay. You all glance back over your shoulders.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nAVszi8m4oY

Aurora's light pulses - and pulses again, flaring from the top of the ice-palace. And you can seek cracks appearing in the frozen waves of water. And then, the mountain shatters with a sound like the world's largest pane of glass breaking to pieces.

A massive titan of ice steps out of the remains of the mountain. The thud of its footsteps sends a shake through the ocean as it moves forward.

Ice begins to form in a ring around where the ship floats in the bay. The magic that is forming it from the seawater quickly increases in magnitude, stretching under the water and beginning to build a wall up, stopping the ship from moving.

"Holy shit!" Obis shouts. "That thing is huge!"

"We need to get out of here, now!" Adavan says. "I'm going to start the engines!"

It's about five stories tall, taller than you when titanic, but not as wide as you could stretch.

It stepped over about a fifth of the island in one stride, heading directly toward you.

3.scout Kan-Abar for info
4.elf lady for alliance

Though the biggest problem with that is actually contacting them.
We were only able to talk to her through a proxy in the first place because of how isolationist they are. And because of how isolationist they are there probably isn't a great need to join our alliance, and we don't have much to offer them for that in any case.

I know exactly how it works good sir, I said what I said because we have a tendency to use mana for spells in fights and in emergencies within fights, so we may want to use them in a limited way, decisively, because of our low mana.

<I'm going to put you back in that space for safety!>

Adavan pauses before the door to the lower decks, considering your suggestion.

"What?!" Obis shouts. "I really don't want to do that!"

<Well, would you prefer to die?!>

A thundering footstep makes the boat rock. Obis glances up at the ice titan, then back at you. "Alright, but don't let anything happen to this boat! Blackwater would kill me if it takes more than a scra - "

You don't bother letting him finish his sentence before Pocketing him. Adavan nods to you, stiffening a bit as you touch his arm, but vanishing into your Pocket without a peep. You flash away the unconscious Freja, and then you Pocket the ship as well. Wouldn't want it to get a scratch.

>mana:14/58

You hover in midair above the water, where the deck of the ship used to be. It was a good thing you chose your strategy - the icy arms of the bay are closing, a wall of snow and ice quickly piling up to seal it shut. Even if they escaped the smaller ring of ice still growing around you, they'd be trapped in the shallows with nowhere to sail.

The ice titan approaches while you secure your friends. It takes its first thundering step into the water. But rather than sink, a giant plate of ice forms under it, supporting its weight. It stands atop the water, gleaming purple eyes locked onto you.

What do you do?

Why would you be worried about their time spent in the pocket if not for air?

Consuming magic things gives mana, so when we eat the titan, we'll be able to get them out of the pocket immediately.

Even if we have to retreat and burn all our mana doing so, we will get 4 back by regen before they die.

You use Deep Focus.

This isn't a normal creature. It's the keeper of the magic of this place. That explains why it can change the island itself. It feels similar to the demons - likely its controller.

Is it a thinking being? It strikes you that this might be a water elemental - a wild one. Chaotic.

With its element in place all around you, doing significant permanent damage will be difficult. You don't sense anything that might be a weak point...

You again focus all your senses, trying to discern more while your enemy is disoriented.

And you find what you've been looking for - weak points! The titan's power is centered upon five individual cores positioned inside its massive form. One at either shoulder, two more where its legs meet its hips, and another in its head.

But...there's something else.

A line of misty-fine Water trails away from the magic titan and back into the shattered remains of the 'palace'...

It couldn't be more obvious - why fight the puppet when you can go after the puppet master directly?

The titan begins to recover as you soar above its head, flapping to make for the ruins of the palace. It wheels about to follow, but you're quick, and it has a lot of mass to move.

It begins to snow. At first, you're surprised - you'd thought the weather was being held at bay - but then you feel the magic. It knows you're coming - whatever it is.

You dive for the palace as the blizzard increases in intensity. You keep your senses firmly locked on the trail leading from the titan, leaving it several strides behind. You recognize a few of the ruined hallways and -

- there.

Suddenly, the barren simplicity of the palace, and the ruins, is explained. An inner chamber with walls thicker than the outer ring of the island sits to the side, deep within the palace - revealed only because of the titan emerging. Inside is a glittering treasure - gems, golden-leafed chests, even paintings. In the middle of it all is the unmistakable swell of a Water mana pool.

Standing in the middle of the pool is a pedestal, and atop the pedestal is a crystal - half a crystal. Even broken as it is, the smooth half-piece of what must be a mighty gemstone is the largest of its kind you've ever seen.

But you can hardly appreciate it, because the swirl of snow has thickened to a near white-out. The snow beats at you, weighing you down as it accumulates unnaturally quickly. Every beat of your wings is harder than the last.

What do you do?

It's resolve enhancing a magic roll, it's done that in the past without having a problem. Using shards for their intended purpose to slightly heighten a roll doesn't hurt them unless it's against extreme forces.
This is enhancing a nightblaze against a blizzard, with the hope of pushing that 26 higher.

Your nightblaze shocks through the air, turning the snow into flakes of black oil and clear patches of air opaque. For an instant, the world sits like that, resting in negative of itself - and you feel the magic of the blizzard battling back, resisting the imposition of your will.

<Resolve! I need your aid!>

With a roaring press of Shadow, your nightblaze shoves through the blizzard. A gust of wind follows the explosion of power, and the blizzard is pushed back and away.

Silence falls. You Blink to the Water mana pool in an instant.

For a moment, its quiet. Sitting before the gemstone, taking in the surroundings...this is a peaceful place. You remember the burned chamber. Did they hurry to seal away their hopes in this room? A sort of time capsule, frozen still until someone found it?

You use deep focus.

Almost immediately, you sense the five points of power resting within the ice titan positioned almost perfectly above you. You flinch backward into the mana pool, bracing yourself for the worst, getting ready to cast any spell to deflect it -

But nothing happens.

The snow starts to clear. Steadily, gradually, the magic holding it in place fades. And then you see the ice titan sitting above you, frozen mid-motion. A giant fist is cocked back, ready to attack - and it's just caught there. A puppet with the strings cut.

Normally you just wrap things over with your body and absorb them...but this will take a bit of chewing.

You climb your way up to the titan's midsection, using spears of shadow to leverage yourself upward. Eventually, you reach its torso.

It's like cracking open a nut. Only you're drilling and chipping for a few minutes rather than cracking. You consume the cores one by one. They aren't like the stable power cores you remember from the robots - these begin to dissolve and dissipate as soon as you free them from their icy chamber. You're sure to immediately eat them so as to acquire as much energy as possible.

>you've gained 20 exp (46 total)
>HP: 81/81

And now that you're finished eating, you turn back toward the mana pool, ready to return home with another load of the treasure they all seem to like so much. The sooner you get your friends out of your pocket, the better.

Wait.

"Shaaadooooow!"

<Yes, Auriel?>

Auriel jabs her finger at the Firebird, which is not propped up against the side of Haven's inner fortress. "Why is there a SHIP in the middle of my fortress?!"

<Well, I had to put it somewhere.>

"You couldn't have just, I don't know, held on to it for a little while longer?!"

<No,> you say smugly.

"Fine," she snaps. "Now what the fuck is with the fish?!"

The gargantuan fish in question, at least as long as ten men, is now flopping and squirming for breath on the grass in the middle of Haven. <I think it's having trouble breathing,> you say flatly. <Maybe it needs water.>

"EXPLAIN!"

<It needed to be done. Don't worry about it.>

"What the hell are you talking about?"

You proffer a painting up to her. It's a beautiful piece, depicting a long shoreline cast in gold and black by the setting sun. A lone woman stands in the sand, barefoot, watching a ship sail away. <I brought you some more treasure. Now we have something to decorate to fort with.>

"FUCK!" Auriel storms off, spluttering wildly about the Shadow element, paranoid liches, vampires, all interspersed with curse words.

"You're doing this on purpose, aren't you?" Tyrael asks.

<I admit nothing.>

Tyrael chuckles. "You know,I think she needed that after you sprung the Black Lady on her."

<...are you saying this is a good mood?>

"You should know by now, Shadow. She enjoys her anger."

<Here.> You produce for Flint the giant half-gemstone. Even in the half-light of the early morning, it gleams like blue fire. <Give her this as a wedding present.>

Flint has to use both hands to catch the stone as you chuck it at him. "For elements sake, shadow, what's gotten into you?" He eyes the gemstone. "This must be worth half of Arland! ...but, no." He shakes himself. "Seriously. What's with the fish?"

You grin and shrug. <I thought everyone might be hungry.> And then you turn your gaze on your hated foe, watching as its twitching and flopping grows weaker and weaker. You narrow your eyes. <It deserved worse.>

"...uh...ok then," Flint says.

"Actually, I love fish," Tyrael says. He rubs his hands together. "You know, us angels have a lot of time on our hands. I came up with a way of using magic to dry fish meat - I can't be out fishing all the time, you know. Mind if I get my hands dirty?"

<Please do so.>

"Great!" Tyrael, with an odd spring in his step, marches off toward the giant fish. Flint just rubs his forehead and walks off to drop the stone down with the rest of the treasure.

It isn't long before the scent of cooked fish is drifting through the camp. Tyrael gains a huge crowd as he works his magic - quite literally. Short beams of light flash up and down the fish's carcass as he de-bones it. You observe the proceedings with relish. Once they here of this, no fish will ever challenge you again. Never again...

But the earth tree is full of awesome things that we use regularly, and doesn't take much investment at the moment, AND industrial things are better bought EARLY.

I don't think we should buy any of the center tree things, because its all battle abilities.
If we're in battle, we're consuming things, and gaining xp.

If we buy golemtech now, we can build golemtech out of combat and build up haven's defenses WHILE we go out and fight things for your center tree abilities.


It just doesn't make sense to buy shadow rage, army of darkness, resists etc until we need them.

The earth tree is special because it lets us *make* permanent things, and its *doubly* special because we are literally the only one of the planet who knows how to make power cores and dynamos.

That's a gamechanger.

Its basically the equivalent of giving haven a death star.

So we should Tree Gift Earth Tree to her.

I still don't think we should waste artifacting.

We're gonna need to save at least ONE instance of artifact to fix the power seal breach and enact Plan Balance Venia's Mana Flows though.

There's no *reason* to waste our two-of-a-kind ability like that, especially since we haven't even USED our artifact airship for anything yet.
There's just no need to rush in and waste it.

If we make an Artifact, we want to to fulfill a Function, and do something so profound it leaves our legacy to stand through the ages.
Not just being cool.

Anyway, artifacting DOES let us make extra special cool stuff.

So if we're going to reluctantly be forced to artifact a robot by team gundam, then.....
..... we want to get one blown up first in the demon lord war.

I don't see why we can't do both.

The best thing we can do is enlist help building our golems, because we can teach others and there is a way to substitute XP with hard work.

After all, the mortal mages who don't cast magic like we do made an entire civilization of machines. That's not an undertaking you can... just afford to pay xp for.

So finding a way to subsidize and reduce golem construction costs now that we know how is a good thing.

Actually, i was thinking if we're ever in a position to conduct/direct/change the course of venia's manaflow (like erebus once was), a mixture of Earth, Shadow, and Artifact to.... set up an entire regulation system for the place might be a way to actually accomplish our goal.

I pointed this out threads ago, but there's already 5+ demons in the world since they are summoning them as fast as possible and we keep on not doing anything about it.

We attacked 1 in the incident that auriel lost her wings at
weeeks pass
we finally check in on khan-abar afer months of putting it off
two demon lords and giant armies have walked across the continent cutting a bloody swath on an offensive campaign this entire time and we show up just at the END of it.
Its heavily implied that they just keep summoning them when we're warned about the pentarch in the first place (we were also told to target their summoners, which were probably safe in... some other place i think. )
They didn't stop summoning lords forth while the original two were walking their armies around
they can summon two at a time
it takes a few weeks
we've been putting off attacking the demon lords for arc upon arc upon arc upon arc. from before THE ARCHONIUM even.
realizing we only killed ONE lord when auriel lost her powers - leaving one unaccounted for if they can, indeed, summon two at once.

2-1(auriel)+2(fucking up khan abar) +2(that were summoned while we're dicking about ignoring the problem) = 5 demon lords in the world at once. All they have to do is meet up and shit begins.
(the other possibility is that they finished summoning the last two, send them off to reinforce their armies on the way to crush their next target, and started summoning two MORE - leaving 4-7 in the world depending on how many there were to start.)

You know what would fucking suck?

If we stomp out two demon lords and they've summoned enough that there's still 5 anyway.
Because they KEEP SUMMONING THEM AND DON'T STOP WHILE WE"RE DICKING WITH THINGS.

you can't just casaually summone domon lords. and you have no idea how long it took them to summon those first three, it could have been years, since obis was hiding out for 2 years. it takes A LOT OF TIME, MAGIC, AND ENERGY to summon a demon lord. things they can't really spare right now. though it won't suprise me if they summon 1 more by the end of winter making it 3 or 4.

I'm assuming that they summoned up the Two Demon Lords CURRENTLY rampaging khan-abar at the same time, right?
You dig that?

So if they can summon two at a time
and we only killed one
that means they only sent one
and there's one unaccounted for (likely protecting its summoner)

and the two demon lords in khan abar?
They weren't just in it.
They were at the castle, the final bastion of defense
They spent all this time getting to the castle
the summoner wasn't idle after sending his pets to attack
that same time was spent doing more summoning

Its not too hard to follow.

That uncertainty is why the guess is 4-7.

Given the timeframe, I think its 5 currently with the two more about to be finished soon.

Which means we need to take THREE down.

It was confirmed that summoning demon lords become faster the more there are out there, so if 1 takes a 1 year then the next would take less time so in 2 years they made 3 demon lords.
So it is reasonable to believe they are working on a 4TH DEMON LORD RIGHT NOW.

I KNOW, anon! I KNOW.

I'm not generalizing here.

Ready?
The time between Auriel Losing Her Magic and the Trip To Khan-Abar is the timeframe it takes to summon an uncertain amount of demon lords.(at least one, MAYBE two)

Its not casual
It takes weeks/months of preperation and execution
But it doesn't take years.

SM implied that they spent the 2 years since obis got kicked out strengthening their forces and summoning demons. so it took them 1.5-2 years to summon 3. we killed 1. they may have summoned another since then leaving them at 3 max. with a 4 far down the line.

Ah, hell, really?

It make sense, tho. A pentarch is a bunch of demon lords sogging their collective reality-breaking weight on the fabric of reality until they become self-sufficient and unhinged from their creators, entirely selfwilled and self directed.
All it takes is Sufficient Mass.
So it makes sense the more there are, the weaker the walls get.

>can you not understand the concept of summoning things 1 at at time and having them work together

Actually.
That's a good point.
If they can summon two at once, then the unaccounted for one is probably helping nulis summon MORE.
The one urging him into inadvertently creating a pentarch

>>28206335
We didn't. Our allies who were alive during the elemtarchy went OH SHIT.
What we DO know is that the people summoning the demons are summoning them as fast as possible, as recklessly as possible as a military force - and probably don't even know a pentarch is a possibility since its 700 years after the last one was even attempted.

My guess was that a demon lord summoning takes about.... 3-4 weeks, once nulis figured his shit out summoning lesser demons, help/funding/influence/support once his nation realized how powerful it was and threw resources at a demon summoning ritual facility/sacrifices/material components and getting people/another lord to help him with the mystical ordeal.....
Plus Multiple Lord Acceleration factor?

I'd say three weeks for a demon lord is right.
