[Let's Play]Choice of Magics -Second run

Valtiel

The most dangerous mistress
Validated User
I don't know what talking to him under a glamour is meant to achieve, exactly. Is it so powerful that we could actually convince him to go and report back that we're not a dangerous wizard and everything is fine? They wouldn't check him for mind control?

I'm also a bit opposed to an "evil" run, because those can get a bit nihilistic... but he DID try to kill us, and Negation magic and "the Black Sun" sound interesting. Then again, they might just be another way to get a "you die of self-inflicted magical illness" ending. 1 or 2. Definitely not 3.

We kill him.

You chase the inquisitor down and slice him to pieces with quick strokes of your luxgladius. (Decreased Church Relationship.) (Increased Calculation.)

"What have you done?" Tal says, aghast. "You murdered him!" (Decreased Tal Relationship.)

"We can't afford to have him report us," you say. "We could be executed."

Tal sighs. "Aren't you practical. Well, he's dead now, so I guess there's nothing we can do. I hope they don't find out."

"Me too," you say. And you hope you can trust Tal. Killing an inquisitor is grounds for execution. But she wouldn't turn you in…would she?

With the inquisitor dealt with, you return your attention to the skeletons. You could wear their clothing if you like—the duelist's uniform or the black robes. They might be magical.

But first, you consider whether you prefer your current appearance.

What do you look like?

1.Bookish and spectacled.
2.Rugged and adventurous.
3.A snappy dresser, popular about town.
4.I dress all in black.

We can trust Tal. She's a shapeshifter, she won't rat us out to the Inquisition.

A snappy dresser!

A snappy dresser.

Though your parents are themselves of modest means, you've always thought that a good outfit is essential. A sharply dressed person can often make friends in unexpected places.
(Gained Charisma.)

What exactly does your outfit look like right now?

1.A bright-yellow shirt and a large feathered hat.
2.The faux-military uniform of a noble duelist.
3.A long, emerald-green velvet dress and an antique pendant.
4.A cute skirt-and-blouse combination I designed myself.
