    This was not how you imagined your day going.

    The sparks from the wall behind you scatter to the floor as the arrow dings off the crumbled stone wall. Gritting your teeth you roll behind the corner as a second arrow passes through your previous spot. A curse leaves your lips, shouts coming from beyond your weathered cover. You count to three before daring to peak your head over a low spot on the wall.

    You squint then roll your eyes as you get a good look at your assailants. Recognition followed by frustration flash through your mind as you duck back into cover. While it is annoying to have to deal with them again, it is not surprising that they’re still coming after you. Not after what you did to them anyway.

    [] Dragon Bloodline Slayer: You killed the Seventh Dragon Emperor of the Draconic Imperium. Mainly because he threatened to “Drown the World In Neverending Fire”. You couldn’t exactly let him do that (you do live in the World after all), so you gathered your adventuring buddies and took him down. That wasn’t the end of it though. Turns out the guy had kids. A lot of kids. Kids that really wanted you dead, since you got the last hit on their dad. Before you knew it, you completely annihilated the guy’s entire family.

    • Unburnt Flesh (Bloodline Benefit): Your child will be completely immune to all fire-based damage/effects/spells (including lava), and get an extra dice against Draconic foes in combat.

    • A Shattered Empire (World Effect): The Dragon Emperor is dead and so are all his direct descendants. As such, the Empire has no leader and has broken apart into separate Warlords. They are all vying for power, and know that the best way to gain it is by killing you.

    [] Demon’s Bane: You’re the one who put a stop to the Demonic Invasion that the King and Queen tried to start. You got reports that more and more demons were being seen within the Mortal Plane, which isn’t that strange. What is strange is when you start seeing entire camps of them set up just outside of major population centers, hidden from sight via illusion magic. That’s what made you gather your crew, discover that the King and Queen were prepping for a major offensive, rally the various kingdoms to assist you when you informed them, and completely halt their plans. And you mean halt. You killed the Demon King’s wife and their entire Upper Circle of Magi. Just to be sure they didn’t try that shit again.

    • Demonic Resistance (Bloodline Benefit): Your child will be completely immune to all demonic based damage/effects/spells, and get an extra dice against Demonic foes in combat.

    • Absence of Purpose (World Effect): The Demon King has been traumatized by the whole ordeal, leaving the Demon Plane in a state of disarray. Many Demons have gone to the Mortal Plane to find a new purpose, but others have joined up with any surviving generals and magi. These Demons are hunting you down with the hope of turning you into one of them, and possibly replacing their King. Your consent is not required for this.

    [] The Shadow Hunter: You’re the one that dismantled The Order Of The Azure Path. They used to be a secretive organization that ran the world from the shadows. Any major event, any popular political figure, and all the guilds were connected to them in some way, shape or form. There wasn’t much that they didn’t have their hands in. That is until you came along. You tracked those bastards down and destroyed their entire operation. Stone by stone, man by man, coin by coin, you brought them down. Now they are but a shadow of their former selves, with all the clout they once had gone.

    • A Hunter’s Instincts (Bloodline Benefit): Your child will be completely immune to all trickery and illusion based effects/spells, can’t be surprised nor poisoned, and gets an extra dice against Agents of Secret Organizations in combat.

    • Who Watches The Shadows? (World Effect): The Azure Path weren’t a benevolent force, but their power kept all the other groups in check. Rulers, thieves, assassins, any one who skulks in the dark will come crawling out of the woodwork to take their place. And while they know to avoid you, they also know that leaving a threat such as you alive will come back to bite them one day.

    You hear shouts and another arrow bounces off part of the wall to your right. You shake your head while preparing yourself for battle. You can’t head home with these guys trailing you. They’ll make sure word gets out about where you live. While that wouldn’t normally be a problem...things are different now.

    They don’t deserve that. Not until they’re ready.

    Taking them down shouldn’t be too hard. You the strongest-

    [] Man
    [] Woman
    [] (Optional) Appearance (Write In...)

    -in the world...at least you like to think you are. Though there aren’t many who would disagree with you, considering what you are.

    [] Warlord (Martial Might ): Upon first glance, many people think there’s not much to you. Just another “Warrior” who is meant to be a shield so the magic users can do all the “real work”. They second guess themselves after you finish an engagement by ripping a piece of the earth with two hands and toss it at the approaching enemy forces. They rethink it after you power through any and all magic thrown at you to punch the enemy magic-user hard enough to remove their head from their shoulders. While you’re a master with all weapons (even siege) that doesn’t mean you need them to be effective.

    • You can train your child in Martial Stats at home rather than send them to a Class
    • Your child starts with a Martial Combat Skill: Adrenaline Surge
    • Your child starts with a 10 in all Martial Stats
    • Your child gains an x1.5 Multiplier to all Martial Stat Gains

    [] Archmage (Magic Manifested): Other magic users tend to stop at a certain point. They figure they’ve hit their limits and that any further study would either be fruitless or dangerous. You didn’t. You put everything on the line to obtain the ultimate in magical power. Your body, your mind, even your soul. You went through the absolute ringer in order to obtain the power that underlies the entirety of your world. And you got it. Mystic power flows through your veins, and you command it with a Will that will never break.

    • You can Teach your child in Magical Stats at home rather than send them to a Class
    • Your child starts with a Magic Combat Skill: Storm Bolt
    • Your child starts with a 10 in all Magic Stats
    • Your child gains an x1.5 Multiplier to all Magic Stat Gains

    [] Nightblade (The Pinnacle Of Skill): You’ve gotten damn good at taking enemies down before they even know you’re there. To the point where you’ve heard people whisper that you use illusion magic to instantly move from place to place. This isn’t true in the slightest. You’re just that good. Of course, that doesn’t mean you’re fucked if someone manages to catch you before you can take them out. Your skills working best when you’re unseen doesn’t mean you can’t use them in a straight-up brawl. Luckily for you, no one seems to understand this until it’s too late.

    • You can Teach your child Trickery Stats at home rather than send them to a Class
    • Your child starts with a Trickery Combat Skill: Shadow Flare
    • Your child starts with a 10 in all Trickery Stats
    • Your child gains an x1.5 Multiplier to all Trickery Stat Gains




    Hello everyone! Welcome to my new Quest that I hope to actually continue.

    This is another situation where I had an idea for something, and couldn't let it go until I wrote it.

    As you can likely tell from the Quest Title, this Quest is based off the Princess Maker Game Series. Except this time around, you'll able to choose whether you'll be making a Princess or a Prince. I'll explain how that all works later. For now, I'll explain how things work for your character.

    Firstly, you're character will never have to roll for anything. You're THE premier mega badass Hero/Heroine. You do not "try" you "do". While I will describe things happening to you and during certain Events will have you all vote on how to proceed, you'll mostly just deal with things as they come.

    The main things you need to worry about are Gold, Trust, and Rep.

    Gold is exactly what it sounds like. It's your money, and you use it for a variety of things. Buying gifts for your kid, paying for them to go to Classes, going on vacations and so on. You'll get a Stipend of 1000 Gold from the King every two weeks (cause of course the leading political figure wants to be in the good graces of the person who can bring his entire kingdom down on their lonesome), but that won't take care of all your expenses. There will be plenty of ways for you (and your child) to earn money during the Quest.

    Trust is how much your child both trust and likes you. It doesn't have a maximum or minimum, and can be raised and lowered based on the things you do or have your child do. You want to keep this high as it not only governs if your child likes you, but also if they'll listen to you. High trust ensures your child will listen to your every word, while Low trust might lead to them disobeying and not going to Classes or hanging out with the "Wrong Crowd".

    Rep is short for Reputation. Reputation measures what the different factions/people in the world think of your character. Rep represents more than just being liked or disliked by a certain faction or person. How they view both you and your actions is influenced by this, and can be mixed and matched. A faction with a low reputation might hate your guts, but respect you and leave you alone if they understand you can destroy them. A faction with a high reputation might even begin to create legends about you, while bending the truth to suit their version.

    Rep is also not limited to you. It can affect how people see those that associate with you. Including your child A person who despises you and runs one of the Classes your child can go to, is likely to try and hassle your kid while you're away. Or, someone who runs one of the Classes and likes you, might spoil or put unrealistic expectations upon your child, affecting their performance.

    The votes should be self-explanatory, but if anyone has any questions feel free to ask them.

    Thanks, but this version might as well be dead.

    I did post it up on SV though and it gained traction. So you hop on over there if you want.
