    "Things were starting to turn serious. So a certain someone decided to turn serious too."
    ----

    You're not sure if everything he said is true. But if it is, and all profit from it...then why not?

    "Huh, well if I get the go ahead from the Gremory Clan I don't see why I can't help you out." You reply with a sincere smile, putting the number in your pocket. "Heck, there are a couple of other things I can think of that you may find interesting and should be able to help with, but until then nice to meet you Azazel-san. It's nice to know there's someone reasonable in charge of the Grigori."

    "Ahah, I wouldn't do as well without my trusted subordinates. But thanks for the compliment. Goodbye Hyodo-san."

    As he stands up and walks away something comes to your mind. "One last thing, Azazel-san. This Hakuryuukou. What kind of person is he?"

    He stops and puts an hand on his chin. "What kind of person is he? I took care of him since he was a child, and let me tell you: the most fitting word to describe him is [prodigy]. He is someone overflowing with talent and intelligence. I can't get into details, but I firmly believe he is going to be the strongest White Dragon Emperor in history."

    He grins in a strange way, as if he's both proud and apologetic about what he's going to say next. "He's also a battle maniac. He's obsessed in finding strong opponents, and he has reached the point where few of us in Grigori can give him a satisfying battle. He has great expectations about you, his rival."

    You groan. "Sounds like a most troublesome person. Did he achieve Balance Breaker already?" Azazel nods. "Then tell him he needs to wait until I get mine, because there is no way I am going to seriously fight him without at least that. If you want to shorten the time you better prepare a super-special training for me to follow."

    "So eager. I like it. I will prepare something just for you Hyodo-san."

    After he left you lean back and calm down your breath. 'You heard that. Your thought?'

    {This doesn't concern me, but from the history behind it this rivalry is bound by Fate. In this case you are destined to fight regardless of your actions. Regardless, any who opposed a Prince of the Earth will be swiftly and mercilessly put down.}

    [Yes it's fate. I know Albion very well, and I know we will meet each other eventually. If what Azazel said is true he got a good host and a long head-start on us. We need to take your training up a notch partner.]

    'I am not opposed to that, but I don't want to do this blindly. Tell me about Divine Dividing: what kind of Sacred Gear is it? What are its powers?'

    [Divine Dividing is a pair of mechanical wings that let the user fly. It's powers are the opposite of mine: where I Boost and Transfer, he Divides and Steals. Divine Dividing has the power to halve the power of one enemy he touches every ten seconds and adds it to his own.]

    'Nasty. It's a set of powers suited for a one-to-one fight, while mine is more suited to fight with allies.'

    {As the Red Dragon Emperor. As a Solar you have a lot of options to defeat those who are technically stronger that you. I already thought of Charms suitable for the deed ahead. We will begin immediately once you return. The time for you to slack off is over.}

    ----

    The first thing you do after returning home is calling Mittelt, Asia and Eiko to your room and placing a sound-muffling barrier over it. From Mittelt's face she was ready to make a lewd comment, but stops when he sees your serious face.

    Once you're all seated on chairs you brought over you ask her a question. "Mittelt: this may sound strange, but do you know how Azazel, the leader of Grigori, looks like?"

    "Azazel-sama?" She adopts a thinking pose. "I once saw a photo of him in a journal: he's a tall man appearing to be in his twenties, with black hair and golden bangs and a black goatee."

    "So that was really him." You groan. You look them in the eyes. "Not even a hour ago I met Azazel in a bar."

    As their astounded faces you relay the conversation you had with Azazel.

    "I heard there were two Longinus users in Grigori, but I didn't know one of them was the Hakuryuukou." Mittelt comments.

    "Wait, if what Azazel-san said is true does this mean that he personally knows Rias-san's family?" Asia asks.

    "Fufu, Eiko smells a secret affair!" Eiko snaps a fan she picked up who know where. "There are rumors that the current generation's leaders of Devils and Fallen Angels are in a better relationship compared to what it was in the past."

    "Rumors from where?"

    "Why Master, from the Celestial Bureaucracy of course! The Shinto faction keeps a particular eye on the activities in the Underworld. Eiko was taught from the tribe's elders all about this sort of things."

    And thank God she understands politics. You're more comfortable with small groups of people. "I see. If I really receive the okay from the Gremory clan I will accept Azazel's offer. I know this may be dangerous, but it would be worse if I don't accept: at least this way I will know what to expect. In any case, I will need to resume my training. Sorry girls, but my free time will be drastically reduced."

    "Don't worry Ise-san. I understand. I have faith that you will not lose against anyone." Asia reassures you.

    "If you have people gunning for you, you train. That's simple. And we will be happy to help." Mittelt smiles.

    "If the lord goes to war, it's the duty of the vassal to follow. Eiko will assist Master in anything he will needs." Eiko grins and flaps her fan.

    Later, when the girls leave you stop Mittelt. "Before you go, can I ask you something?"

    "What is it?"

    "This may sound strange, but can you tell me what your parents do for a living?"

    "Papa and Mama?" She blinks in surprise. "Papa was in the military before retiring: now he's the director of a company that research alternative sources of energy. Mama is half-time housewife and half-time drunkard."

    What. "D-Drunkard?"

    She shrugs. "She's half-Oni. I don't feel the need, but she needs to be drunk for a certain amount of time regularly or she will suffer from abstinence."

    'Thank whoever is responsible for this: God, Unconquered Sun or anyone else. I will make an offer to you tomorrow ASAP.' "I see. What about your grandparents?"

    "Grandpapa is an archeologist and he often travels around the world. Grandmama is a full-time drunkard and a wanderer."

    What a dysfunctional family! Still, she said her father was in the military time ago. So maybe that's the one Azazel is afraid of? Considering how they don't sound as strict as a typical Japanese family, maybe you don't need to worry about angry fathers trying to castrate you.

    Just in case, you will be on your best behavior around them. Just in case.

    ----

    After dinner you retire to your room. Sitting on your desk you write on a sheet of paper.

    [Snake Gang]

    It's been almost two weeks since you learned about them. You put aside the matter until now, but maybe now is the time to take care of it. While your time is limited it should be easy to take care of the gang: they're just normal guys, while you're and Exalt. But while defeating them is easy, tracking them down is not. You should ask Matsuda and Motohama's help, or whoever may looks like knowledgeable about things like this.

    Pursue Snake?
    [] Yes
    [] No


    [Magnus]

    You're wary about introducing Ruby and Yang to Azazel, but he may be the best person to teach them how to use their Sacred Gears. Asia too.

    Introduce the girls to Azazel?
    [] Yes
    [] No


    [Exaltation]

    Now, that's a conundrum. There is no way Azazel will miss that Boosted Gear is different now. This mean you will probably have to tell him about it. But if he is interested, you may even work together into reproducing Solar technology.

    Tell Azazel about Exaltation and all that it implies?
    [] Yes
    [] No


    [Evil Pieces]

    You don't know if he will be interested, but maybe Azazel can give you advices about your little project.

    Tell Azazel about your research on the Evil Pieces?
    [] Yes
    [] No


    What else?

    [] Write-in.

    After you finish putting your thoughts on paper you focus back on your mental connection with your partners. Just in time to hear fragments of a conversation.

    [...Sure about that?]

    {My analysis don't lie dragon. It was I who perfected biotechnology. Integrity-Protecting Prana will serve the worm well if you decide to go with this training. I am not particularly enthusiastic about it, but I can see the benefits. Grave times call for grave measures.}

    [Perfect!] The dragon guffaws.

    'Ohi. What are you two doing while I am distracted?' You ask, fearing they may be up to no good. While you respect both of your teachers immensely, you are aware of their quirks.

    [Partner! Just in time.] You can picture Ddraig grinning from ear to ear. [Say, want to be a dragon? Or better part of it?]

    '...Explain. Then, I decide how long I need to ignore you.' You deadpan.

    [I'm serious, listen to me. Since your body, albeit perfect according to Bright, is still human I thought of a way to give you an edge against other supernatural beings. The answer?]

    A pause.

    [Dragon Energy. My soul gives Boosted Gear its power, but it's also possible to use directly the energy within. Compared to powers like Demonic Power and Light Power, who are determined by race, anyone can use the power of a Dragon. But many don't because it's hard, and also because losing control of it means either death or your body transforming into that of a dragon.]

    You pinch the bridge between your eyes. 'And you're suggesting this, why?'

    [Because you, partner, can both master it in a short time and avoid getting turned into a Dragon.]

    You blink. 'Go on.'

    [I had Bright made some tests. Not only you are already proficient in the qualities needed to successfully control the Dragon Energy's changes, your Charm "Integrity-Protecting Prana" can protect you from any screw-up and instantly revert your body to normal.]

    'So you want to turn me into a Dragon?' You ask intrigued.

    [Just part it. High-level dragons like myself are shapeshifters: your body will look human, but it will stronger, faster and more resistant. Plus you will acquire some powers that will help you greatly.]

    'You're okay with it Bright-sensei?'

    {Shapeshifting is more the realm of Lunars and audacious Eclipses, but considering the nature of your foes every weapon counts. The only thing that will never change, is that you need to win. Always. Excel in everything and rule as the perfect king. This, is what Solars do.}

    'Hai hai. So Ddraig, how I do this?'

    [You will need to access the newly opened source of Dragon Energy in Boosted Gear and learn how to properly channel it into your body.]

    Materializing Boosted Gear you sit down on the ground and assume the Lotus position.

    [Now, follow my intructions...]

    [] Stunt: write-in.

    Roll: [Wits + Resistance] At the end of each hour
    Difficulty: 3
    Successes needed: 15
    ----

    To celebrate the opening of a new thread, and your past efforts to make a 100-pages long thread, I give you a boon:

    Bonus: 20 Xp!

    Use them well.

    Dragon Knacks:
    Predator Reflexes
    Duration: Permanent
    Dragons are at the top of the food chain, and those who attempt trickery against them soon find out why. When an unexpected attack targets the user with this Knack but he fails to get enough successes on the (Wits + Awareness) roll to notice the attack coming, he instinctively defends himself with his highest applicable DV plus half of it rounded down. The character cannot preemptively attack his attacker or even shout out a warning to his comrades, as he's reacting to an attack that's already taking place, but he is much more likely to dodge or parry that attack. Nonetheless, the user cannot actually join battle himself until everyone else does after the unexpected attack is resolved.

    Dragon Body Hybrid
    Cost: 1m; Duration: One day
    The user of Dragon Power learns how to change a limited part of his body into that of a dragon. He doesn't have to invoke every mutation whenever he uses this Knack: he can choose all or only one. The possible mutations are:
    -Claws: the user's hands acquires short but sharp claws (S:5/A:+1/D:+3L/D:+0/R:3)
    -Enhanced Senses: The user's five senses become unnaturally acute. He gains two dices on all Awareness rolls. The mutation is physically obvious in the eyes, who are slitted like a dragon and glow.
    -Scales: The user's skin changes and he is now covered in delicate but sturdy scales. Add 2B/2L to Soak. He gains one die in all Survival pools and he does not need to wear clothing to protect himself against the elements.
    -Wings: The user has a pair of wings with a wingspan of six yards and can fly. He flies at two times his normal running speed, ascends at his normal running speed and can dive at 10 times his running speed. He does not need to make checks to pull out of dives.

    Dragon's Might Technique (x2)
    Duration: Permanent
    Dragons are eternal: not so easily are their mighty bodies slain. This Knack gives the user additional health levels. He may purchase this Knack multiple times, but no more than once per dot of Stamina. Each purchase provides 1 additional Dying health level and the following:
    -Additional three -2 health levels
    -Additional three -2 health levels

    Deadly Dragoon Warrior
    Cost: 2m; Duration: One scene
    The user can shift into what the Lunar Exalts call the War Form, a monstrous amalgam of human and dragon. He gains several feet in height and increases proportionally in mass. Muscles ripple across his form, which has fearsomely long and sharp fangs and claws. He is three meters tall and has a wingspan of twelve yards, with a tail one yard and half long. When the user is in War Form he heals even faster: halve the healing time for all wounds save Aggravated.
    -When the user is in War Form he adds two dots each to Strength, Dexterity and Stamina. This increase can bring physical Attributes above five and only affect the user when he is in War Form. Any improved Attributes are considered natural.
    -The user gains all mutations from Dragon Body Hybrid plus: Bite (S:5/A:+0/D:+3L/D:-/R:2); Claw Feet (S:5/A:+0/D:+5L/D:-2/R:2); Tail, which is purely cosmetic.

    Infinite Factory of Life
    Cost: -/2m/4m; Duration: Indefinite
    This Knack super-charges the dragon's healing abilities beyond anything it knew before. After purchase it allows the character to heal 1 level of Bashing damage every 10 ticks, this increases to 1 level of Bashing per 5 ticks or 1 level of Lethal per 10 ticks at Essence 4 and 1 level of Bashing per tick and 1 level of Lethal per 5 ticks at Essence 5. The character also gains the ability to spend power to enhance his healing to even greater heights: as a reflexive action he may spend 2 motes per level of Bashing damage and 4 motes per level of Lethal damage healed, however he may only spend a maximum of (Stamina + Resistance) motes every 10 ticks until he gains Essence 4 at which point this cap is removed.

    Granting: "Touched by Dragon"
    Cost: 6m, 1wp; Duration: Permanent
    Those who Dragons favor carry a mark of greatness on their souls: this Knack grants the Merit "Touched by Dragon" to a person the character has a positive Intimacy to. Characters with this Merit finds themselves at ease interacting with Dragons, and vice versa. When those who have the Merit "Touched by Dragon" channels or rolls one virtue, selected when they gain this Merit, add one die.

    Child of Mother Earth
    Duration: Permanent
    Primordial Dragons were born from magma, the life-blood of Earth. This Knack permanently enhances the "Scales" mutation, giving the user an extra +4 soak against all fire attacks.

    Lightning Sprinter
    Cost: 1 Willpower; Duration: One scene
    This Knack doubles the amount of distance the character can cover in a Move and Dash action. What's more, it negates the movement penalties a character should accrue for dashing through water or mud as long as the user began his Dash action on terrain with no such penalty and continues to perform consecutive Dash actions. As long as he keeps dashing his feet skim the surface of the water or muck like a skipping stone. If he should slow down or stop, however, he sinks into the sucking terrain to suffer the normal penalties. He may purchase this Knack multiple times, but no more than once per dot of Dexterity.

    Experience and Training

    Favoured or Caste/Not Favoured or Out-of-Caste

    New Trait Xp Cost Training Time
    Ability 2/3 Immediate/6 days (3+ hours for day)
    Specialty 1/2 Immediate/6 days (3+ hours for day)
    Charm 8/10 (Min. Ability) days (3+ hours for day)/(Min. Ability + Min. Essence) days (3+ hours for day)
    Sorcery Spell 8 (spell circle) weeks (6 days, 3+ hours for days)

    Improve Trait Xp Cost Training Time
    Attribute 6/7/8* 1 month (30 days, 3+ hours for day)
    Ability 3/4 Immediate/6 days (3+ hours for day)
    Specialty 2/3 Immediate/6 days (3+ hours for day)
    Essence (current rating) x8 (current rating) months (30 days, 3+ hours for day)
    Virtue 3 Immediate
    Willpower 3 Immediate
    *(6 Xp to improve it from 1 to 3, 7 Xp to improve it from 4 to 7, 8 Xp to improve it from 8+)

    Spells and Abilities from DxD don't follow this scheme and don't require Xp. They require a teacher and training time, that can be shortened with enough dots in an ability/abilities that resonate with them.

    Bright and Ddraig are very good tutors, so they can reduce the time to train the stuff they knew best in life.
    Bright can use a spell to transfer knowledge directly from mind to mind, so the training time for (Attributes, Abilities, Specialties, Spells, Charms, Essence) is shortened to 1 hour per dot. Bright's rating in that trait must be greater than Issei.

    Things you do during the game can count as training to related things. For example spending a week crafting things count as 7 days of training Craft Charms. Spending a day chatting with your friends counts as training for Socialize. Etc...

    You can stunt your pure training actions, which will reduce the time needed for something to count as your day of training. Same goes for having a good teacher.

    -------------------------------------------

    DxD World's Magic Systems

    Every Magic System follow a Paradigm: a core concept that define it. Spells that resonate with this concept are easier to cast (+1 to Casting roll and Target roll for every Proficiency Rank in it).

    Sacred Gear. "Wish" Paradigm. Component allowed: all of them.
    Norse Magic. "War" Paradigm. Component allowed: Conjure, Damage, Divination, Energy, Enhance, Heal, Movement, New Power, Protect.
    Devil Magic. "Destruction" Paradigm. Components allowed: Control, Damage, Energy, Enhance, Metaspell, Movement, New Power, Protect.
    Angel Magic. "Blessing" Paradigm. Components allowed: Conjure, Damage, Divination, Energy, Enhance, Heal, Movement, New Power, Protect.
    Fallen Angel Magic. "Glamour". Components allowed: Conjure, Control, Damage, Divination, Energy, Illusion, Metaspell, Movement, New Power, Protect.
    Black Magic. "Curse" Paradigm. Components allowed: Control, Damage, Energy, Illusion, Metaspell, Movement.
    White Magic. "Cure" Paradigm. Components allowed: Conjure, Divination, Energy, Enhance, Heal, New Power, Protect.
    Fairy Magic. "Nature" Paradigm. Components allowed: Conjure, Control, Divination, Energy, Enhance, Heal, Illusion, New Power, Protect.
    Summoning Magic. "Travel" Paradigm. Components allowed: Control, Divination, Metaspell, Movement.
    Spirit Magic. "Natural Spirits" Paradigm. Components allowed: Conjure, Control, Divination, Enhance, Metaspell, Movement, New Power.
    Dragon Magic. "Might" Paradigm. Components allowed: Damage, Energy, Enhance, Movement, New Power, Protect.
    Runes. "Symbol" Paradigm. Components allowed: Conjure, Control, Damage, Divination, Energy, Enhance, Heal, Illusion, Metaspell, Movement, New, Power, Protect.
    Onmyouji Arts. "Purification" Paradigm. Components allowed: Conjure, Control, Damage, Divination, Energy, Enhance, Heal, Illusion, Movement, Protect.

    The following arts are not considered magic systems, but they follow the same rules:

    Ki Manipulation. "Ki" Paradigm. Components allowed: Control, Damage, Divination, Energy, Enhance, Heal, Illusion, Movement, Protect.
    Touki. "Ki Mastery" Paradigm. Components allowed: Damage, Enhance, Movement, Protect.
    Senjutsu. "Chakra" Paradigm. Components allowed: Control, Damage, Divination, Enhance, Heal, Illusion, Movement, New Power, Protect.
    Reversal Magic. "Reverse" Paradigm. Components allowed: Metaspell.

    Spells

    Spells of every Magic System are divided into Ranks. The Rank of a Spell is determined by the number of its Components:

    001 - 025 Rank 1: kill a person, destroy a motorcycle
    026 - 050 Rank 2: Kill a Low-Class Devil
    051 - 100 Rank 3: Kill a Middle-Class Devil
    101 - 150 Rank 4: Kill a High-Class Devil
    151 - 200 Rank 5: Kill an Ultimate-Class Devil, decimate an army, destroy a city
    201 - 250+ Rank 6: vaporize a big army, kill a god, wreak a region the size of Saitama's prefecture (every 50 Components add +1 to Casting Difficulty)

    -The roll to see if a Spell Casting is successful is: [Int + Lore + Occult + Essence]. The Difficulty is the Rank of the Spell, Casting is an automatic success if the Difficulty of the Spell is less than half of [Int + Lore + Occult + Essence].
    -If successful there is another roll to see if it hits: the roll is Dexterity+[Attribute](it varies depending on the Magic System)

    -When casting a spell you take one level of Exhaustion Damage (-1 penalty to all actions. Internal Penalty) per Rank of that Spell. The is reduced for each Proficiency gained: IE Rank 3 casting with Rank 1 Proficiency inflicts 2 levels of Exhaustion damage.
    -This damage heals at a rate of 1 level per hour resting for mortals, 1 level per minute for Characters with Essence of 2 or more, and 1 Level per 10 Ticks for Characters with Essence of 6+.
    -Motes can be spend to reduce Exhaustion. The motes cost must be spent separately for every Level:
    -First Level: 2m
    -Second Level: 4m
    -Third Level: 6m
    -Fourth Level: 8m
    -Fifth Level: 10m
    -Sixth Level: 12m
    -7+ Level: 14m

    Learning Spells

    Extended Roll measured in days (3+hours for Exalt Issei).

    Rank One. Requirements (Int+Lore+Occult+Essence) = 3, Successes 10
    Rank Two. Requirements (Int+Lore+Occul+Essence) = 4, Successes 15
    Rank Three. Requirements (Int+Lore+Occult+Essence) = 5, Successes 30
    Rank Four. Requirements (Int+Lore+Occult+Essence) = 6, Successes 50
    Rank Five. Requirements (Int+Lore+Occult+Essnece) = 7, Successes 75
    Rank Six. Requirements (Int+Lore+Occult+Essence) = 8, Successes 100

    Proficiency

    Rank One Proficiency. requirements (Int+Lore+Occult+Essence+Speciality) = 3, Successes 10

    Get them out of our hair now while we have time to spend on them. Eiko can speed our search enormously by scouting around the city from above, in fact she can probably do this on her own while we handle other business. Once we've found the Snakes we go in and have a word with their leader whenever we have some spare time.

    This is the crafting route, and we don't need or want crafting while we're still trying to get up to speed with our combat skills. Maybe later once we're better-established.

    Right, let's go around handing out sensitive information about the devil faction's primary means of reproduction. This can't possibly have any negative repercussions!

    Smuthunter, and those who wants the First Occult Excellency, following EternityChaos's advice I decided that different magic styles uses different ways to roll for hitting.

    Devil, Angel and Fallen Angel magic use [Dexterity+Occult] to target and hit.
    Norse Magic uses [Dexterity+Athletics].
    Black Magic and White Magic, being human creations, use [Dexterity+Lore].

    For now know that every magic system gives bonus to some pursuits, penalize others and don't permit a few. Those that break those rules are super-exceptions like Odin and Ajuka.

    Alexander the magic we have been learning up until now from Akeno, is that Black Magic, or Devil Magic? I figure its Devil what with us learning the primer spells for Devils as it where but better to ask now then regret later and all

    Also, is my Stunt workable or should I rewrite it?

    Devil Magic.

    It's workable.

    Telling Azazel about the Exaltation is not a crafting route. You don't decide now that you will start building something, it merely opens up as a possibility.

    Ah, makes sense that different magic's use different abilities and attributes.

    I forget but do we know what happens if we go full dragon? Would we be a humanoid dragon or full dragon like Ddrig?

    [Edit] By that I mean would we have a human shaped body or a traditional dragon's

    Stunt:-
    An overwhelming amount of red energy bursts out from the boosted gear and surrounds you , trying to invade your body , mind and soul. Desires , impulses , emotions alien to you nature suddenly fills your mind. You want to see your enemies broken at your feet , begging for mercy. All the riches of this world, piled at your feet. And yet an unquenchable desire fills you. You need something more , something greater....

    Just as suddenly, the invasion stops , and warmth feels your body. The feeling was.... It was like one of these cold and rainy days that leave you miserable and make you wonder whether there was any warmth left in the world , and suddenly the clouds part and the warm rays of the sun embrace you , and drive the memory of cold away from your body and mind.

    When you return to your senses , you sense an invisible barrier separating the energy from your being. The red energy seethes about your body , and you can sense its intentions , sort of. It won't bow to your will , but it is willing to work with you , instead of against you.

    [X] First Occult Excellency, Fists of Iron Technique {16 EXP total}

    Pursue Snake?
    [X] Yes
    Get them out of our hair now while we have time to spend on them. Eiko can speed our search enormously by scouting around the city from above, in fact she can probably do this on her own while we handle other business. Once we've found the Snakes we go in and have a word with their leader whenever we have some spare time.

    Introduce the girls to Azazel?
    [X] No
    -[X] But tell the girls about him and let them make their own decisions on whether to contact him or not.
    He's probably going to find out about them sooner or later anyways, and we want the girls to become as strong as possible as soon as possible. Still, this should be their decision and Asia at least may have some reservations about meeting him.


    Tell Azazel about Exaltation and all that it implies?
    [X] No
    -[X] Only after the fight against the Hakuryukou will you tell him of this...that is, if he wanted to know.

    Tell Azazel about your research on the Evil Pieces?
    [X] No
    Right, let's go around handing out sensitive information about the devil faction's primary means of reproduction. This can't possibly have any negative repercussions!

    Stunt [X] You rest on your bed in the lotus position. Opening one eye you survey your room, windows closed with the blinds drawn & all potentially distracting devices turned off & placed away. Across from you in wooden chairs sit Mittelt & Asia. The fallen angel rests her enormous hammer along her shoulders with a bored expression on her face as she leans back, one leg popped against your bed. A few feet to her left, Asia focuses her attention on a novel she's holding tightly. You'd asked her to present to heal you if absorbing the Dragon's Energy placed some injury or strain on your body; you won't let misguided pride or arrogance place you in danger needlessly when you know others still depend on you.

    Boosted Gear forms around your arms power flares, green and full of pride and arrogance, Your mind clears and firms, the Dominion of Dragons is no challenge to the supremacy of one of the Chosen of the Sun.

    Time flows slowly as Dominion wrestles with Excellence, neither giving way, neither surrendering, all the while you watch on from the quite of your mind taking note of how this new power flows and pools within you, and how you may direct it to reduce the strain it places on your body and mind.

    You've tolerated there prescence long enough they are a blight on this city. Expunge them and take your cohort with you.

    [Magnus]

    You're wary about introducing Ruby and Yang to Azazel, but he may be the best person to teach them how to use their Sacred Gears. Asia too.

    Introduce the girls to Azazel?
    [X] Tell them about Azazel and let them decide.

    [Exaltation]

    Now, that's a conundrum. There is no way Azazel will miss that Boosted Gear is different now. This mean you will probably have to tell him about it. But if he is interested, you may even work together into reproducing Solar technology.

    Tell Azazel about Exaltation and all that it implies?
    [X] Yes
    He's gonna hack it anyway and telling him may let you learn more about how things interact and further species unity. And Craft route ain't that bad with a whole new system.

    [Evil Pieces]

    You don't know if he will be interested, but maybe Azazel can give you advices about your little project.

    Tell Azazel about your research on the Evil Pieces?
    [X] Yes
    Didn't he work on this? And he's one of the primeer scientists here with his help we can push new boundaries and maybe even turn this project into something that may turn this ceasefire into a lasting peace.


    [X]You begin to breathe. In down up out. In down up out. You breathe and drown out everything but your breath and the beat of your heart. And when those are the only things in the eye of your mind you open yourself to Ddraig trying to synchronise your heart beats.


    [X]First Occult Excellency,3 Dots Investigation 9 xp,(17/27) , 1 Dot Athletic, Awareness,Dodge 9 xp (26/27)

    That's checking from the Old Op. So this might be off a bit.

    But that should flesh out things like figuring out what people think, tracking down those dirty crooks, not getting hit And casting.

    Though we could probably stand to drop fists of Iron Technique in exchange for maxing many more of our actually favored skill and digging deeper into being a Blaster Master. Our favored skills seem to all but demand we be a lightning Juggernaut Spellslinger who's nigh impossible to hit and even harder to hurt when you do.

    This is a reason to do it later, not when we're trying to gear up our combat skills for big fights against people who are a lot more powerful than us.

    Issei doesn't know that, so this is metagaming.

    It is. We spent some of that buffing our Martial Arts score up to 4.

    Our spells are nifty but none of them are Solar-tier. Fist of the Daystar is the way to go for huge damage and close combat proficiency. Plus it has Heaven Thunder Hammer, so whenever someone gets too close for comfort we can knock them into the next district.

    Telling Azazel about Exaltation is not craft route. If we want Azazel to train us , he at least needs to know the basic principles of how we work. We don't have to blab everything. Let's just give him a general outline.

    Then here's a better reason: we just met the guy and already we're thinking about spilling all our secrets to him, stuff we didn't even tell Rias until we'd known her for a week or two. Let's give him the benefit of the doubt with one thing, and then when he proves himself trustworthy we can deal him in on other things.

    In fact we didn't tell her until after she saw us personally beat the shit out of Raynare with our anima banner flaring right behind us.

    Again , I am not proposing to spill all our secrets. Notice my wording. I want to give him the simplest , most basic outlines of our new power , of which he already has a vague idea. If we are trusting him enough to make a training schedule for us , we might a well trust him enough to give him the necessary information so that the training schedule is more effective.

    True, I wouldn't let him near the boosted gear let alone my exaltation without knowing him personly for awhile
