Page 164 Book 5: The War Diaries
A battle millennia in the works.
Vilkarlig is also known as “Vilkarlig the Ancient” because he’s one of the oldest demons still breathing. As a consequence, he’s been fighting off devils since before they were scaly and red, and is very familiar with them, especially so after his capture. “Hellsmaid” is a demonic term of derision, applied to devils that aren’t assigned to the front lines of the devil/demon war, and in effect saying it is akin to describing someone as a lowly servant, spending their time running errands and licking the boots of the archdevils (if there’s anyone that enjoys the poor public image of the archdevils, it’s the demons they fight).
Compare then Kilzu, an imp under Levistus. Levistus as we already know is the archdevil of treachery and firmly believes that the nine hells have gotten off-track from their original mission of fighting back the demonic hordes. He’s old school, knows how to fight almost anything that breathes (and a large portion of what doesn’t) and he expects similar for everyone under him, from master-at-arms to maid, servant to sycophant. The icy fifth layer, Stygia, is anathema to demons even while Levistus is imprisoned, simply being there is enough to melt a fair few of them. When Kilzu says she was designed to fight demons, she’s legitimately not joking. So whilst a lowly imp might be a poor match against an archdemon-possessed evil queen, Kilzu actually stands a fair chance.
At least…for a while.
And now the news:
If you haven’t noticed it already, there’s a chip-in chart muddled in with the networking tabs on the front-page. I made a video that explains it rather straight-forwardly, but to summarise it: Donate money to help me get a dedicated desktop computer for making videos and comics etc. and in return if the $800 mark is passed I will make an IRL (that means featuring my actual appearance on camera, for the less Internet acquainted among you) video whilst wearing a maid outfit.
Pass it substantially and my frill-laden on-camera appearance will get progressively more…complex. The $1600 mark I’m thinking I’ll re-enact a scene from a maid-sim, but who knows, it all depends on how high it goes. Once the computer itself is paid for in donations, the extras will go into merchandising for Remember and getting the site made all pretty and such since it’s last redesign was more than a couple years back after all.
UPDATE: Chipin seems to be down at the moment, widget and site et al. Give it an hour or two I think and it’ll probably be back online.
