    YO DAWG I PUT YO' GIELOTH INSIDE A GIELOTH SO YOU CAN DESTROY ALL TENTACLES WHILE YOU DESTROY ALL TENTACLES!

    Fighting her straight-up in this place isn't a good idea. I don't think that her psychic abilities are dampened here - if she can speak to us telepathically, then she still has some power here. The biggest problem with A is that we'd probably be fighting blind and without our telepathy to give us a sense of direction. If it were a straight-up fight, we would beat the shit out of Sukhenun, but it isn't. However, if we light this place up, then we can use our eyes and even the odds. Yes, she'll probably use some of her psychic tricks to fuck with us, but after waking up from a 300 years and developing our psionic abilities, I think we've developed some resistance to anything that she might do.

    C for brutal cunning

    Okay I'll go B. It stops the use of other mental abilities but we still might dart dodge and weave out of the tentacles' grip while we burn the place. The only concern I have is that the womb mother might attack us, and the children might react. Oh, and our friends have been mindfucked and are now controlled by Sekhenun. Hopefully the children are afraid of light.

    Treavebro, is our elementalism actually developed enough to torch the place, or would it be along the lines of "HRNGHHH, oh fuck"

    Well... that would be a spoiler. Still, we're pretty early in the game, there's still about twenty thousand years before what
    is foretold here may come to pass...

    It'll light up the slime. But fire requires oxygen to burn, you're in an enclosed space, and the slime can move to smother it out due to its considerable volume. You can put out enough flames that they'd burn for some time, though. It's not strong enough to incinerate the slime outright, but it will serve as a distraction at least, that much I can give you. Whether you manage to survive after this is up to your subsequent decisions.

    So, REJOICE. B is not a dead-end choice.

    B will get us elemental powers and possible 300 years of rest. A will get us sharpened senses and most definitely 300 years of rest. I think we ought to do a round of diplomacy before trying to fire thingy. So C.


    Flip flopping to B.

    What if we say we're here for some "private" time, treavebro?

    That would be an option under Gieloth diplomacy, it's the one where you try to find a diplomatic resolution to the whole mess.

    You know, you do have a point here. When we went up against Shulgi, his underestimation of Ean as just a dumb brute was the key to pushing him out of Akkad. I'm pretty sure Sukhenun plans to deceive us somehow, so if we just play the dumb warrior again it might be enough to get her to put her guard down. At the very least, unlike A and B, we've developed our psionic abilities and have some mental shielding in case she tries some mind control on us.

    Well... that is unless her mind control abilities are so powerful that she manages to use them against us successfully, that is. Then we're pretty fucked.

    Flopped the original post to C

    Maybe if we fail, we'll turn into one of these :mhd:

    That kind of feeling fills me with :desu:

    But still, I don't like the situation we're in; this tentacle can easily reads our mind & fuck us for good...

    B is the most classical action hero response in my opinion, burn those suckers, then beat a hasty retreat with your bros in tow while the monsters swarm around you. A can work if you catch the bitch off-guard, otherwise it could go very badly. C is too risky for my tastes and not Ean's strong suit, he could potentially work it though, I will concede. D is despicable for an immortal.

    A is tempting as we are physically superior, but we would be fighting blind.

    Oh, and A may give us enhanced sensing powers considering we are psychically blocked as well as facing a tentacle monster (Remember treave's post a few pages back). Could be cool if it works out.

    Well, we do know that we gain more power through fighting these things and through dangerous situations. I'd say that enhances senses are significantly more appropriate given our character. Then again, going with A could mean we just get our asses kicked instead of a glorious victory:

    I'm going with C on this one. We'll pounce on her when she's close and her guard is down.

    I don't like our chances with A. We'll be fighting blind and unable to sense her mind. Once she takes her tentacle form we also won't be able to easily orient ourselves to her weak spot just by touch.

    With B I think we'll turn the currently non-hostile womb against us. Sure we'd gain Mutyre and Akil, but they're not fighters anyway. So then we'd have to fight the womb AND Sekhunen at the same time (because we wouldn't run away like pussies right?).
