My Khaki and Sera are both interested. Not sure about Middy though. She and Lilith aren't on good terms atm.🤣

Lmao hey, you never know! Maybe Middy will accept Lilith as being stronger and decides that she needs an extra boost of power 😄

Would your characters seek out Lilith to obtain the power or would she have to offer it in a time of need for them?

If only Middy didn't get the boss position. But I think they can seek out Lilith. Or Middy could bring them to Lilith if possible.

So how does this loyalty thing go? 

You could even have them show up later in the Despair thread! 

It's basically a contract made between Lilith and another character. The power that can be drawn from the contract's loyalty bands is dependent on their loyalty to Lilith. Free will still exists, but even at it's very weakest they feel compelled to obey her. At it's strongest, their more primal characteristics are brought to the forefront until they find themselves willingly obeying her. Or anywhere in between! Also, Lilith occasionally just grants the power to people who ask for it without bothering to actually command them. But that's not to say she never will.

The little boy with his glowing necklace will swear fealty to Lilith in exchange for power and the possible return of his memories and/or knowledge of his origins. 👀

Yay! I was looking forward to his joining! Is there a name yet?

We shall find out together 👀

😅 but in all seriousness, he doesn't have a name since he doesn't have the memories to back it up. It is very likely Lilith and the lovely ladies with her can, in fact, give him a name, provided he likes it. 👀

Now that you mentioned it, Middy could summon the whole gang if needed. Although, as per membership of the cartel, they already most of their privacy and free will so they are fine with serving Lilith as long as she does not order them to kill each other. But they won't say no to the power boost. And they could also get another chance to bring down a city especially in Terrenus. That Last Chance disaster is still fresh in their hearts. 

Also the additional accomplishments plus Lilith's recommendation would look good in their resume. 😀

Oh and Middy already considers Lilith as a friend. So just give her a call and she'll be there to help.

@Ataraxy How hard does Lilith party?

Oh and in terms of power, can the boost give them enough power to survive a peacekeeper? 

Depends what you mean by that. It might help them not die in an encounter, sure, but if you want something that let's you fight a PK, you need an S-class artifact or plot armor at the least lol

Just enough to survive an encounter. It won't be long before the cartel are hounded by the Pks (hopefully not). Here's to hoping Lilith's power boost can help them survive an encounter.
