Overlord's Quarters by NyxenAvenger Overlord's Quarters by NyxenAvenger
The art of skull bowling is a common method amongst the Yaoguai of China, especially in such groups like the Black Horn clan. The belief behind it was that the power of your enemy still remained in the skull, and that turning it into a makeshift bowl would draw out the power and into your being through food or through incense.  Overlord Augus took that art seriously, when she was younger and a lot slimmer she was often given the task of skull bowling by her former overlord, as he thought of himself as too dignified to do it himself. Even after years of being overlord and all high class she preferred to do the art by herself, she at least deserved that.

She smiled in her silken pyjamas, truly this was a fine skull bowl. Karah's bones were made of a jade like substance it seemed. After a second of pondering she decided would keep this one to herself, she grinned as she took the bowl to her glamorous golden kitchen and laid it upon the intricate jade counter top. The pan was boiling upon the hellish cooker, with a careful hand she removed it from the toothy hob and poured the sweet-smelling liquid into the hole of the skull. 

"Perfect as always, my glorious overlord." She laughed as she crawled onto the massive bed, taking care not to spill the bowl in hand. The bed was riddled with all manners of blasphemous texts and scrolls, most of it from foreign lands. She sighed as she laid the bowl next to her rather plump side. Her large gut was a greedy thing but it had purpose as a book stand, a warm, grumbling book stand. She placed the book on top of her stomach and read the texts. Yaoguai magic she knew off the top of her horned head, but these strange texts were not suited for her slimy tongue. She raised her clawed hand up in the air.

"Hellfire...Maelstrom?" That was a mistake, a volatile orange energy ball burst from her palm and bounced off the walls like a basketball before flying itself out the jade doors. She winced as she heard the distant scream reverberating throughout the hallways.

"Fucking foreign magic. I can cast my magic without needing such pathetic words." She grumbled as she threw the book out of her sights, she plucked out the spoon from the skull bowl and sipped the sweet contents. She sighed as the warmth flowed through her entire being. You could always count on the rejuvenating taste of Wuxi butter soup to make the night less troubling, she thought as she downed the entire soup into her maw.

She laid to the side as her cheek rested upon the soft pillow, she had been in this place for a year and although she didn't want to admit it she felt slightly homesick. Sentinel Peak was pretty much cut off from the outside world which meant it was a great place to conduct her operations world-wide in secrecy, but she was not used to the cold and the monsters. That and she was living next door to those...things in that mountain, she repressed a shudder. Miss Luvenka had accidentally given her the means to hide out here, but Mrs Luvenka could just as easily kick her and her ilk out with one hand tied behind her back.

But she had been in worse situations, that brought at least some comfort to the chubby overlord as she dazed off into a deep slumber.

Augus is better off sticking with Yaoguai magic, as she contemplates her situation.

Also little reference to :iconcruxia:'s Cruxia in pic, because couple years back (when I was a huge anxious NARD) I did a silly pic with her overlord and my overlord (fav.me/d82ai3a) and I thought it would be a neat little callback to those times. How Augus managed to get such an infernal book with that sigil is beyond me ahaha!

Hope you enjoy, one last pic and Episode 2 will be finished! I cannot wait to do Episode 3, it will be a freaky one haha!

Basically the idea is to cut a big hole at the top of the skull, and then to work in the excess bone to fill in any gaps that might cause the contents to spill (such as the eye sockets and so forth)!

It's cute seeing a monstrous individual in a vulnerable position.
