This is a site for discussing roleplaying games. Have fun doing so, but there is one major rule: do not discuss political issues that aren't directly and uniquely related to the subject of the thread and about gaming. While this site is dedicated to free speech, the following will not be tolerated: devolving a thread into unrelated political discussion, sockpuppeting (using multiple and/or bogus accounts), disrupting topics without contributing to them, and posting images that could get someone fired in the workplace (an external link is OK, but clearly mark it as Not Safe For Work, or NSFW). If you receive a warning, please take it seriously and either move on to another topic or steer the discussion back to its original RPG-related theme.

LoO - New Prometheus - Dagon (Headless) - Da01

I grab another Heph Idol.  While coiling menacingly above him, and start applying Ego either through the Idol, or directly through eye contact.  

I shouldn't have come, it was a trap.  I don't know this Godling.

"You are the one that imprisoned the beast for a thousand years instead of just killing him.  Seems like a waste to me.  Poor Hephestus, so clever with his hands but so stupid."

Zeus couldn't kill Lankinnin, how am I able to? It must be a trick.  I'm out numbered and right where he wants me.

After sowing doubt, (and hopefully before he kills the troll) I coil above him and come down like a tonne of bricks.  Aiming to bite, knock him off his feet, and death ciol him.  Once we are in physical contact shifting the comtest to ego should be easier.  I sure hope I am ranked higher than him.  :D

"So powerful that his strength could have been used by us when it was needed," the creature rasps as it continues to shrink.

The mind-on-mind force that Dagon brings to bear on the creature weakens and distracts it enough that the troll breaks free of the grip just before Dagon crashes down upon it. The last of the dirt sloughs away revealing a 3 foot tall mauve imp strugling to break free of the naga-coils.

"It's over. Free me," it manages to gasp before the coils squeeze its chest tight.

My coils continue to tighten on him.  Squeezing until he turns a deeper shade of mauve.  I let up before he passes put, but if a rib cracks thats ok.  

I continue the ego assult as well.  I want to dominate him, over whelm his defenses and pull all his secrets from his mind.  

Who are you?  Where is Hephestus?  Tell me everything.

[My goal here is find out everything I can about this place, the troll, and links between this place and Olympus.  If its worth it I will also leave a heavy compulsion on this imp, I still need allies. If I don't trust his loyalty after the interagation and compulsion I will feed him to the troll. You can write some of my lines for the interogation if you want, in the interests of smooth play since you know my goals]

It's begging stops when it can no longer breathe and there is the sound of cracking bones. Dagon feels that the creature has a powerful mind but not so strong as to resist his mental probe. From images and memories brought forth he can read that the imp was summoned by Hephaestus and bound to this temple in order to keep the people cowed into continuing the feeding of the imprisioned troll. The imp was also commanded to attack the troll if he ever escaped his prison. Extra enchantments were laid about the temple but all have been destroyed from battle.

Loosening his grip Dagon asks the imp "That was quite a performance considering you were imprisoned too."

"It was the geas," the creature gasps, "Hephaestus had me bound body and soul to this building."

I loosen my grip, both on his body and his mind.  

"Tell me Imp.  What will you do now that your Geas is broken, and I have set you free?  And how long till Hephestus finds out what has happened here? Is he linked? Does he check in on you often?"

The imp rubs his aching ribs while he speaks.

"The boss would stop by every couple of centuries or so to see what was going on and make a few repairs. I don't know when he will learn of this because nothing like you has ever come around before. And who the hell are you anyway?"

The troll grabs the imp by its thin hair and holds it up to eye level.

"This was the thing keeping me in prison all this time," it guffaws while poking the imp, "Howsabout I eat it in revenge?"

I strike forward.  Wrapping him in my coils and (hopefully) pulling him off balance.  I lay the full strenght of my Ego and my Might against him.  Its time to establish a hierarchy.

"How about I eat you?"  I intone while looming above him my snake jaws unhinging, my cavernous maw gaping opening large enough to swallow the troll.  

(Hands are free to catch his hands if the escape my coils. Ego overwhelming him with my strenght and majesty.)

"I freed you from your prison Troll.  I defeated the Imp in the heart of his strenght.  I Daygon have the plan and the drive,  you both will be my leutenitents, together we will lay these worlds at our feet.  But do not cross me and do not challenge me again our I will tear your arms off and swallow you down."
