Cz 11

Now talking in #Terranotos
Starsinger: alright, picking up dinner right now and then all distraction free
[OOC] Raziel: the pizza place said my order would be ready 20 minutes ago sorry
JayM: We didn't start yet
JayM: All ready?
[OOC] Raziel: Yep
JayM: Alright
Split Worlds - Mission 11: Raging Siege
It has been… A little while since you left a trail of utter destruction behind you. But your calculations you should have enough distance between you and them that you can afford to slow down a little bit to let the engine rest, you've been redlining it hardcore, maybe even come to full stop for some ten minutes to regain your strength
There is no sounds in the marshlands right now, except perhaps the strange chirping of strange birds
Hauser lays her sword out in front of her in the back - someone else has the wheel for now. "Fort, pass me the aether ratchet."
Fortunata rummages through various piles of things that have been knocked quite astray by their latest adventure.
Fortunata: "Uh, yeah, gimme a moment."
Lynne leans back and tries to unwind a little. "This hemisphere… So perilous."
Fortunata finally finds the thing after looking through that first pile right there after the umpteenth time, then passes it over to Hauser. "Really? Perilous. That's all."
Fortunata laughs.
Raziel: "It's kind of exciting though… knowing we might never make it home… and that we might die and never see our loved ones again…" Ray looks down, "Yeah… exciting…"
Right about now you start hearing a noise- That's just the comm system signalling an incoming call
Hauser untightens the bolts holding the two halves of her sword together, revealing the crystal running through the center of it. "Somebody get that."
Fortunata kicks aside an empty crate ( "Ow, dammit!" ) and picks up the line.
Fortunata: "Yeah?"
Lynne laughs with Fort. "I'm beginning to consider the wiser choice to solidify our contacts on the light side."
Lynne: "As opposed to obtaining some here."
Hauser: "If we let our contacts come down along traditional lines, we'll end up with planetary war."
It's voice-only, but he definitely sounds in panic, although simultaneously relieved "Guys! Guys you're there I found you!" it's Raf
Fortunata: "Oh come on, Raf, do you really think we'd kick it this early?"
Fortunata: "So what's the good news?"
Fortunata snorts.
You hear a muffled nose from the other side "N-not good! At all! We're-" there's a moment of silent "Under attack!"
Raf: "The White Fire's being jammed, I don't know how- Lost contact with you days ago, managed to get some router drones working- You gotta get back-"
Fortunata: "Ahaha. Well, shit."
JayM: The call's breaking up somewhat
Fortunata: "How d'you reckon we do that?"
Raziel: "Raf! We have to go save him!"
Hauser curses under her breath, beginning to work faster. Replacing the blade sections, opening up a panel to insert the [E-En Core] into the side. She tests it quickly, the blade sparking to life, phantom projections of the blade jutting out with a shimmer.
Hauser: "That we do. Get coordinates if you can."
Lynne: "I agree. He sounded like he desired assistance."
Raf: "Grr-" you hear some more noises "L-look, I think I can get a lock on you… Get the car running- I'll put the hyperwarp gate here to work- Be careful I don't have precise coordinates"
Raf: "Alright- In twelve"
Hauser: "That should do it." [T2 -> T3, Ether-Arm Blade "Purest Element" .]
Fortunata: "Awesome."
One… Two… Three… Six… Eleven… By the perfect twelfth second- Nothing? Nope, delayed, takes a while more for the gate to open- First a line, a strangely two-dimensional line in space, which splits open in a panel of blue color in the ground, six runes appear in it's surface, and the blue color dissolves into a view of the other side, the exit gateway
If only, however, the gate hadn't been opened askew in the ground below you, and the gate were in the wall- With gravity performing crazy contortions as you fly through a little unexpectedly, the vehicle ends up landing upside-down in the transport bay. A sizeable room of the headquarters that's been kept exclusively for use of the large hyperwarp gate
Hauser yells angrily as she slams against the roof with a deafening thud.
Hauser: "…Yeah, that's… about the best we coulda expected."
Fortunata had already done her weaponwork beforehand. Hell, that's what half the piles of junk were for! [Ship Power Core + TADS + Energy Capacitor: +5 Accuracy]
Fortunata: "Look at it this way, boss, at least we weren't dumped into space."
Loud thumping noises, you leave the car just in time to see Raf jumping down the stairs to get where you are "There you are" he looks hurt, added a green cloak to his attire, and is wearing a black bandanna, this is about the first time you've seen him with his weapons, a pair of blade tonfas "Are you alright, did I-" he looks at the surveyor "I didn't. Are you okay?"
Fortunata: "Tired. Grumpy. Alive. Sardonic."
Raf: "Not going to get better-" you hear explosions, although a weird 'muted' kind, yeah that's telltale of wind magic "-Dammit. Okay, quick rundown"
Raziel‘ gives Raf a flying tackle hug. "I’m so glad you aren't dead!"
Raf: "I don't know what's going on, but a large amount of troops came from nowhere-" Raf nearly topples as Raziel tackles him, but he steadies himself "Y-yeah wasn't going to just die anyway"
Raf: "*ahem*" he'll just hold Raz for as long as he remains there "Anyway, those troops came out of nowhere, they're locals from the looks of it, don't fly any banners. Big problem, they're hitting us just with long-range artillery, mostly wind-type and fire-type magic, our defenses are holding well but this isn't a fortress. Bigger problem, they haven't gotten to melee range yet because
JayM: a defense force from town actually intercepted them! "
Hauser: "At least there's that."
Raf: "I don't know why they did so, they seemed to be expecting that, somehow. Either way, we gotta put an end to this"
Hauser: "There's a local war under our noses? What a pain."
Raf: "Maybe… Maybe not. We're not really on top of the city, they're putting an effort to hit us too. Either way we're stuck in the crossfire we gotta do something-"
Hauser: "Ilirians still in atmosphere?"
Raf: "I'm not really good at this planning thing though- Anyway, come on up, at least I got a good image of what the field looks like"
Raf: "Yes, mostly, not engaged in battle, though"
Raziel‘ finally lets go of Raf. "Don’t scare me like that again."
Raf: "They've hit the White Fire with some very powerful EW attacks, though"
Fortunata: "…ew?"
Fortunata sounds it out like the phrase, not the initials.
Raf: "Er, electronic warfare"
Hauser: "We tangled with darkside forces on our mission out - don't know if you got the intel - but the Ilirians seem to have met up with them."
Hauser: "So, this could end up as a very, very messy proxy war."
Raf: "N-no, we lost contact soon after you left. Dammit…"
Lynne stares at a corner and thinks deeply… "Hmm… Why would the light side citizens come to our defense…"
Raf: "W-well, first problems first, let's see if we can solve this and then see if we can contact HQ about this"
Fortunata scratches behind an ear. "Man, doesn't this just beat all…"
Fortunata: "Wasn't this supposed to be more of an expedition?"
Raf drags you all back to the upper floor, the meeting room "Yes it was…"
Raf: "From what I know this isn't the first time the White Fire gets in this sort of tangle, though"
Fortunata: "Ah well, complaining isn't gonna make things any better."
Raziel‘ ponders, "I wonder if this has something to do with that illirian with the shotgun in the outer dream world…"
Raf halts "Outer Dream World?"
Hauser: "They’re coming to our defense because the darksiders on the wrong side."
Fortunata: "Outer… wat?"
Raf: "Hrm… I remember being asked a lot of stuff about that by the science team"
Fortunata: "…is that anything like Outer Heaven?"
Raziel: "No, this is a real place. I was there when you guys put me in that tube, remember?"
Lynne: "Dreams are just fanciful stories, Raziel. Stories… wait…"
Fortunata: "…mmmmaybe? We were all banged up pretty bad."
Fortunata: "I was focusing on trying not to fall apart."
At any rate, Raf pulls out a schematic of how the battle's going. There's a very large force coming, although they have a semblance of a formation they're more like layered disorganized groups, a close combat force in front, a group of ranged strikers behind them and a artillery after, with a small location pinpointed with very few enemies, but they're there. Forces from the city have
JayM: gathered in the nearby woods, the schematic indicates they're fighting with quite the trained military precision, which is probably why the vastly inferior forces are keeping up
JayM: The way it looks like, this could be a very long drawn out engagement of one organized and trained force against a larger untrained and undisciplined force
Hauser: "My gut instinct is to crush their artillery."
Hauser: "It's most of what they've got that can threaten the HQ."
JayM: Look, not even the basic sort of safeties taken in large engagements the darkside forces have taken, flanks completely open… Doesn't even takes Hauser's military background to notice this, even if you've played some RTS games before you'd notice. Only thing preventing the lightside forces from moving there is… That they're trying to halt advance towards the city's direction
Fortunata: "We can't just not pay attention to the fighters, though. They would still overwhelm us."
Raziel: "What about the EAS?"
Fortunata: "Isn't it still in maintenance?"
Fortunata: "I, uh. Ran mine right through its paces, poor girl."
Raf: "Hrm… Let me check it out"
Lynne shakes her head and tunes back in. "I can hypothesize the why later. Strategy for the present obstacle is more important."
He pulls out some controls, looks at them, turns the screen to you all, it seems to show a status of the entire party, there's a gague called 'E-En', which is pretty empty "No power, it seems"
Fortunata: "How… meta."
Hauser: "Well, the machines are fine. We just can't get them down here."
Fortunata chuckles. "You want me to get behind one and push?"
Hauser sighs. "…Anyway, it's simple enough. We band up together with the local forces, together we can keep the city covered and crush the rabble one by one."
Raf: "If we could get you up there, maybe you could rappel it down"
Hauser: "…The only problem is, that means- well, planet war."
Fortunata: "That sounds ABSURDLY dangerous."
Fortunata: "And fun."
Fortunata: (The rappelling, not the planetary war.)
Raf looks at the battle for a moment "You know, my dad told me once that an army without a commander is like dust in the rain"
Raf: "Maybe we could try to hit the command of this group? Local forces seem to be handling the offense well, but can't move"
Fortunata: "Pretty sure anyone with a military parent would say that, though. It's basic tactics, yeah?"
Raf: "(Well, not quite like that but…)"
Hauser: "Hmm."
Raf: "I mean… I don't know how you guys do it, really, i'm not good with straight-on fighting myself"
Hauser: "Yeah, best way to do it. We know where their command is?"
Raf: "Hrm… Not quite sure, but… I have a hunch" he points a place behind everyone else where very few people are "A thing of interest is that I detected a very large energy signature here"
Fortunata: "That could be any number of really bad things."
Lynne: "Concerns of planetary escalation are best saved for later. Let's do what it takes to seize victory."
Raf: "I tried running a comparison of the energy signatures I found in the battle and I found out that this is… Peculiar, it's similar to the aura reading I got off of Sunwave and Bloodsun, but distinctively different"
Fortunata: "A generator? A siege cannon? Etheric surge?"
Raziel: "Like a generator, or an etheric energy converter, or a refrigerator"
Fortunata turns and stares at Raziel.
Raf: "It… Might be a Darkbearer, I think"
Hauser: "Hmph. So that's what we're heading out to engage?"
Raf: "I'm hoping it is the right target"
Fortunata: "Well, we'll soon find out."
Raf: "Alright, those guys are well distracted by the local force, and I don't believe they got any long-range sensors, so you should be able to take the long route around them"
Hauser: "Well, any huge energy spike is worth taking out."
Raf: "Alright… Hum… Okay, up to you now, then"
Hauser: "Alright." She cracks her neck, limbering up.
Raf: "I'll stay around and make sure nothing happens over here- Actually, i'll see if I can give some information from here"
Raziel: "Be careful, Raf. You're not allowed to die while we're gone…"
Hauser: "Got a ride for us, or would marching out have a lower profile?"
Raf: "Hrm… Let's see… The surveyor's too damaged, the convec's probably too much of a tank and not well-armed enough. Actually, let me see a thing"
Raf goes down to the garage, looking over the other choice of vehicle, two hoverbikes "Hrm, they've got additional armoring and off-road boosters so there's enough size, if you double-up on both bikes, this should be best"
Fortunata: "BIKES!"
Fortunata: "This is gonna be AWESOME!"
Hauser follows along. "Right. Given the situation…"
JayM: So how about this… Let's have a Navigation/Stealth [TN 5] just to see if you get the drop on them or if you crash into it
[OOC] Hauser: Well, I have Discretion on Nav, at least.
[OOC] Raziel: I have too easy Nav
Fortunata is a seasoned pro at doing cool things with bikes! Maybe they'll LITERALLY get the drop on them! [Expertise: Navigation]
[OOC] Lynne: Lucky, do over on Nav
[OOC] Fortunata: Add another two luckies for wilderness and scoundrel, if I can do both :D
[OOC] Lynne: I got a Stealth trick too
[OOC] Hauser: It helps if you explain what your skills actually do to the dice, then someone can set them up and roll them!
[OOC] Raziel: Oh sorry, Too easy lets me force a four, so it doesn't help
[OOC] Lynne: Lucky adds one reel, and Trick turns one reel into "Best of 2 rolls"
[OOC] Fortunata: Looks like Expertise + Too Easy for autosuccess?
Fortunata rolled 7d8 and got 6, 7, 1, 3, 8, 7, 7 ( Total: 39 ) for and a free 4, TN4 due to expertise
Also rolled 2d8 and got 6, 1 [Total: 7 (Low), Avg: 3.50]
Total: 46, Avg: 5.11
JayM: That is a lot of successes
[OOC] Raziel: We are super successful bikepilots!!
It doesn't takes long to maneuver past the entire formation, you only hear the din of battle and see the flashes of light above the canopy of the trees to guide you. As you advance further and further you start approaching where the energy signature is… You see something in the distance, and magnifying it a little you see that… It looks like a small encampment. Five or so people, all
JayM: skimakers, with one exception. Standing as tall as a monster, body muscular like nothing else you've seen before, wearing metal brastplate and four jet black horns on his head
JayM: The camp's really just four tents, a small firepit in the center, two wooden altars as well in the edges. One of the tents looks like it's just for meetings
Raziel‘ grins, enjoying the ride despite the circumstances "This is really fun! We didn’t really have bikes where I grew up… so this is actually my first time."
Hauser: "There's the enemy. Hang on."
Hauser roars into the enemy's command camp, sword carving through the command tent as she rides past it, skidding to a stop in front of the leader.
As you move right through, you catch them by surprise, you manage to isolate the commander from the other people, he is out of reaction for now!
JayM: Surprise round! You can all act!
JayM: Howevr, only the commander is in this field of battle. The others? Well, what are the others doing? For now they're in stunned silence!
[OOC] Raziel: Do we act all willy nilly surprise round or is there actual initiative?
Hauser lays into the commander with her longblade! [Charge Edge - 54D]
Hauser rolled 1d100 and got 39 ( Total: 39 ) for C90
Hauser rolled 1d12+220 and got 3 ( Total: 223.0 ) **
JayM: No actual initiative!
The commander's struck with Hauser's charged sword, he stumbles backwards, opening his large leathery wings to prevent himself from falling. He spins around slightly and shields himself with his left hand. You notice that not just are both of his hands clawed and very dangerous, his left hand is definitely larger and meaner looking, and he isn't armed
Fortunata darts around behind the commander, striking out while Hauser's keeping him busy! [Attack, 44D]
Fortunata rolled 1d100 and got 5 ( Total: 5 ) for 85/10
Fortunata rolled 1d10*2+120*2 and got 7 ( Total: 254.0 )

Lynne rolled 1d100 and got 44 ( Total: 44 )

Raziel` points at the commander as four stars fall from the heavens, crashing into him.
The field commander roar "What is this?! You dare come here and challange a heir of the dark throne?!"
Fortunata: "That’s about it, yeah."
Field Commander: "SO BE IT! Come on then, fools, let me show you what true power is!"
Fortunata: "You gonna make the best of it, or are you gonna keep whining!"
[OOC] Raziel: He will show us frue destruction!
The rest of the people who were around just… Stay there, kind of watching

Lynne takes a bottle out and downs its contents! [Tincture, 30D]

Raziel: "How are you still standing…? What's this guy made of?"
Raziel‘ points the Codex at him to find out. ((Divine Insight 18D))
JayM: Darkbearer Field Commander - L20 Humanoid Normal/Boss - HP: 2506/3360, MP: 800/800 - A: Shadow, W: Holy
JayM: Omega Report: Darkbearer, powerful. In charge of the strike force. Very large amount of energy condensed in his horns. Similarities to the Lightsider’s 'Angel Wings' ability [Demon Horns]
JayM: S-something's different this time, Raziel. When you can't contact the White Fire to send them the scan data, something ELSE you're not quite sure what it was delivers some additional information to your Codex
Raziel‘ frowns, "Where is this coming from?"
Fortunata: "Hell if I know. I’ve never felt better about being out of magic juice, though!"
The Field Commander growls, and raises his left fist "Come on, hear me call and come to me, minions! [Open Gate]!" he punches the air and space distorts, a strange gateway appears in the air, an opressive breeze blows by, chilling to the bone and smelling of death, dust flies through it. It remains open for a few moments until two objects made of… Viscous inky black color slip through…
JayM: They have strange forms, as if floating, living runes… Shadow Elementals
The gate closes as soon as they cross over

Hauser: "Scrub out the support. This could be a long one."
Fortunata: "…oh! That reminds me!"
Lynne stares at the tincture she just drank. "Mmmm… Is this the effects of the medicine…? In any case, I could get used to this."
[OOC] Hauser: yes you have debuffs on your weapon, don't you?
Fortunata: "I guess I have that one trick they wouldn't just eat up."
Hauser rushes towards the back row, driving her blade deep into a shadow element, pinning it up against the altar. [Parry Edge - 54D!]
Hauser rolled 1d100 and got 99 ( Total: 99 ) for C90
Hauser: But it slips free!
JayM: It doesn't gets hit, sadly

The Field Commander then points both of his hands forward "Come forth, scion of darkness, thy dark soul who crosses the pathway to death! Charon!" three green spheres with flames within then circle around him for a moment as a magical circle appears before him.
[OOC] Raziel: shit all th ebricks
Fortunata: "I guess some things never do change."
A sickly mist appears from the circle, and you hear the sound of something sloshing, the characteristic sound of wood grinding on metal. You can see a vaguely humanoid shape within the mist as it starts to dissipate, until it's completely gone… A man, stirring a large cauldron, clad in black robes, looking emaciated and gaunt, pale as death itself [Summon Charon]
JayM: Although really, the name's definitely odd to call it, that's DEFINITELY Hades?
JayM: Maybe they got a different name for him over here

Raziel bonks him right in the head! He wobbles for a moment, growling "Now this is… Humiliating" he’s weakned, and it seems the last blow helped dispel the last bits of the hex on his mind "Enough of this rolyshit" he straigthens himself, spreading his wings and raising his left hand "The Left Hand Of God…" a sphere of dark energy starts gathering in it… The energy is terribly
JayM: intense, you can feel it…
Fortunata: "I think not."
The sphere grows ever more dense by the second-
JayM: And you got just a moment to decide on a course of action before he does something with it
Fortunata simply darts forward and takes a swing at this "Hand of God."
JayM: Raziel, Lynne, Hauser and Rohius, what are you doing?
Rohius shoots his hand. THIS IS A GREAT IDEA.
[OOC] Raziel: Can I scan the sphere?
Hauser rushes up by Fortunata's side, section after section of the drive-blade phasing in, fortress panels flipping open as she skids to a braced stop to follow up Fort's strike-
Lynne desperately uses whatever magic power she can muster to throw something at it, even if it's just fancy sparks!
He brings down his hand, Fortunata who's the closest of it for a moment can feen the intense energy, this was definitely a bad tactical choice on her place… Suddenly everything you feel around you is darkness… You feel the terrible and intense flow of energy over your bodies- You know for sure this would have been fatal, but something- This energy, you're certain only starship weapons
JayM: could be this powerful
Fortunata grits her teeth, trying to show no reaction, but she really can't help crying out at this point. It's all too much.
When you finally regain your vision, you tumble forward, the sheer power of the strike was what was keeping you standing. In front of you- Sunwave, who looks terribly hurt, his clothes are pretty much gone, his armor cracked, his wings missing most feathers, his body is supported by Hauser's, her armor completely damaged, the arms have fallen off as they didn't sustain the strike. The
JayM: combined shielding of both probably is the only thing that saved both of you
Sunwave coughs "D-did I arrive… Too late?"
Hauser: "Hmph. Just in time."
Hauser: "This is my true form, just so you know."
Fortunata coughs. "Augh. Okay."
Sunwave looks at Hauser "J-just a kid… Hah… You're definitely something else…"
Fortunata: "Yeah. I'm great."
Rohius: "I'm not sure HOW, but I know that it is. OW."
Hauser: "Some of us more than others."
Lynne is out like a light, both mind and body have given all that they've got.
Hauser picks herself off the ground, dragging her sword out of the deep groove it carved into the earth.
Fortunata just stares upward at the planet's weird-ass sky.
Raziel: "… Did I die…?"
Sunwave just falls back and sits "T-thanks for… For helping. Normally this doesn't ends up this fast, or well…"
Rohius slumps forward.
Raziel‘ looks around, "Oh… you guys are all here… did you die too?"
Rohius: "OW."
Fortunata: "I was gonna say he’s no Airgetlam… but something of that level… ergh."
Sunwave: "That was… A foolish move of his, the Left Hand Of God is not to be abused as such, not for this… Silly conflict over the mines"
Sunwave: "What do they even want with the mines anyway…"
JayM: He sounds tired. And annoyed. But mostly tired
Fortunata: "Must be really really important."
Hauser: "I don't think it's just over the mines."
Fortunata: "Right now I really don't care."
Fortunata: "Mostly trying to stay in one piece."
Hauser: "A kind of…" She coughs a bit of fluid up. Her chest-piece sparks.
Hauser: "…Fifth kingdom got in touch with the other side."
Lynne starts to come to, groaning as she pulls herself back up…
Fortunata: "I don't THINK anything important is broken. Badly."
Sunwave: "They've… Been fighting over the damn mines for years now, we can't quite gte the empires to interfere. This time it was really odd, too"
Hauser: "We think they might be bringing our war to you."
Sunwave: "Hrm? What do you mean?"
Hauser: "The kingdom we represent has been at a very long war with another one. They've come to your planet, and our forces and theirs have been fighting in the sky - you may have seen the lights and the fires."
Hauser: "…If they want something from your planet, they'll need to push us out of the way first."
Hauser: "And if we've made contact with the Light side, they'll try to broil up war with allies in the Dark side to do it."
Sunwave: "… I've notice the lights in the sky… But… How is that possible?"
Hauser: "To have a battle in the sky, you mean?"
Sunwave: "That… That'd be difficult. Some… Minor skirmishes aside with those… Restless brutes. The two kingdoms have been at peace"
Raziel: "Do you think that's what this Left Hand of God is? Like them calling in an orbital strike given to them?"
Sunwave: "Yes"
Lynne: "…My head must not be all there, did Hauser just say…"
Sunwave lifts his left hand "The Left Hand Of God, the power passed down to us of royal blood by the Three Kings"
Hauser: "Well, first, you make a ship that flies. Second, you strap guns to it."
Hauser: "Third, you hope you don't crash."
Hauser: "That's about the long and short of it."
[OOC] Raziel: Is there some sort of… Prime Directive thing that we're violating right now?
JayM: Not at all
JayM: Like there's laws to prevent ABUSE of underdeveloped planets, but there is no such thing as a prime directive or something
JayM: You're not quite allowed to directly intervene in their politics through your superior firepower and fighting a proxy war is definitely not allowed. But… You know… The Ilirians never cared for the galactic law anyway
Sunwave: "A ship that flies? That looks pretty absurd to me- But… I'm hurting too much right now to care"
Raziel‘ looks at the Codex to see if it captured any data before the Left Hand went off.
Sunwave: "M-maybe we should head back? Their forces scattered when this fight broke out… And the healers are waiting"
Hauser: "Yes. Yes we should. Thank you."
JayM: That was, sadly, just energy readings, Raziel
[OOC] Hauser: Basically, we really, really, really want to prevent proxy war. Nevertheless, we kinda have one.
Lynne: "Healers. …Healers." Lynne has a content smile.
Fortunata: "Yeah. Healers."
JayM: Although it appears to be a thaumaturgical spell similar to Scathe in nature… Just… You never saw an actual thaumaturge this powerful
Fortunata coughs. "I’m supposed to be at least halfassed at that. But instead I was chasing power. Heh…"
JayM: Given… You HAVE read about a thaumaturgical WMD that was stronger than even reflex weapons… But that was on an untrustworthy tabloid
Raziel: "Hrm…"
Sunwave stands up slowly. He pats his wings lightly makings the feathers that were hanging just by a thread to finally fall- His stomach complains of hunger "W-well, let's go, then…"
Raziel‘ turns to Sunwave, "Hey, you said ’The Left Hand of God isn't for such petty'… somethings. What do you know about it?"
[OOC] Raziel: this is what happens when you get raised by scientists
Sunwave: "This is the divine power we've been given by birthright. It is not to be abused"
Raziel: "How long has it been around?"
Sunwave: "Hah… Since the age of the Three Kings, of course"
Raziel: "And that was how long ago?"
Lynne: "How do you deal with the Hand? Assuming an ideal situation where you have ample time and resources to formulate a counter."
Sunwave: "Ahaha, you don't"
Sunwave: "Well, someone with a more powerful crown can certainly use his own against the other… That is normally how a real battle between us rulers go, if it really gets down to it"
Lynne: "Might you have a clue how many of those crowns there are?"
Raziel‘ looks at Sunwave, "Curious… how does it work? I mean, I know it’s not for trivial things… but could you use it right now if you wanted?"
Sunwave: "Aha- Not in this state, i'm about to fall over. But i'd just have to call the power-" he looks at Lynne "Are you- Well-" he looks over at Fortunata, who might notice that the attack pretty caused your disguises to malfunction, they're slowly returning to normal "Was going to ask if you're really from THAT far away, but, i've never seen someone with ears like that before, so I
JayM: guess you are "
Fortunata: "Yeah. You could say that."
Fortunata: "Sometimes I think I have more ears than brains."
Hauser: "You do have a whole lot of ears, Fort."
Fortunata: "Throwing myself right at something like that was a pretty terrible idea, in retrospect."
Fortunata: "Thought I'd try to take his hand off."
Sunwave: "Those crowns" he tap his rather simple circlet, which as a single gem in it "Are our burdens, the reminder of those we've killed. Though they're also passed from parent to child. They are our power, we earn them when a life is taken by our hands"
Raziel‘ writes all of this down in the Codex
In hindsight, you remember that the guy you were fighting had a circlet as well, although it was jet-black rather than brilliant silver and looked like made of stone instead of metal, and it had three gems, a larger in the center and two small ones beside it
Raziel: "That man had 3 gems on his circlet… was his crown stronger than yours?"
Sunwave: "Definitely… My family’s been caring for this town for generations… We're not killers"
Fortunata: "So… if I had actually succeeded…"
Fortunata: "I'd be wearing the crown?"
Sunwave: "That man… I don't trust him as long as he's in my sight"
Raziel: "I don't know if you'd be able to do anything with it, Fort… I'm thinking it might be some sort of biological based thaumaturgical WMD."
Sunwave scratches his head "Well, you're not a lightbearer. Can't say I ever saw a lightbearer die to one who wasn't of the ruler line, either"
Lynne turns bright red and grabs her ears, looking around in a panic- but after five or six seconds, she sighs and calms herself down. "…But they are numerous, these crowns. Interesting."
Fortunata grins, but it's still rather pained-looking. "First time for everything, right…?"
Hauser: "…If at all possible, we shouldn't be doing any coups here."
Fortunata: "That wasn't really my intent, though."
Fortunata: "Just… stop the thing from happening."
Fortunata: "Didn't work anyway."
Hauser nods. "Mmhm. Just… when it comes to putting our plan into place. It's not about…"
Hauser: "…How do we fight that?"
Hauser: "It's about… how do we not fight that."
Raziel: "But I mean why? Why does this exist in the first place? I doubt something like this could have been developed simultaneously by both sides with identical aspects… So presumably it was created by a third party… but then why can the Lightbearers and Darkbearers both use it? Who builds a super weapon and gives it to two opposing groups?"
Sunwave: "We're not that different, they just live in over there"
Fortunata: "Someone far too easily amused."
Raziel: "I mean… I suppose you could be trying to enforce a cold war scenario… But we just saw evidence that there are people crazy enough to use it."
Sunwave: "But we're all the same, descendants of the Three Kings"
Raziel: "Tell me about the Three Kings."
Raziel‘ looks at the Codex
Sunwave: "We’re born with this power- Or well, when we ascend to Lightbearers is when that happens, but you know"
Raziel‘ writes down a speculation and keeps listening to Sunwave
Rohius is still laying there, wondering if his urethra and ribs are broken or sprained, how something like that could be broken/sprained, and occassionally gurgling in pain.
Sunwave: "Hrm… I remember telling you about the history of the Three Kings. But in short, back ago, very, very long ago, in the age wherein demons controlled the land, the Three Kings drove them away"
Raziel: "Well yes… but I’m paying more attention now." ((/lampshade))
Sunwave: "Us lightbearers and the darkbearers are descendants of two of those kings, and inherited their great power"
Raziel: "And the third king?"
Sunwave: "The struggle against the demons nearly brought an end to everything that is, as the Third King had to unsheathe the Shadow Calibur. That simple act was enough to slice apart everything, all life, the land, even the stars. It was thw sacrifice of the other two kings who protected the land, and the Third King is said to have made his way to the stars to put them back together"
Raziel‘ nods. "Thank you, Sunwave."
Sunwave: "No, thank you. If you hadn’t interfered this battle would have lasted weeks, months even"
Raziel: "I have a theory guys… Let's head back to HQ and discuss it." Raziel says as he turns and falls over from wounds.
Fortunata: "I'm not going anywhere until my limbs work proper."
JayM: What a perfect place to stop

JayM: And you gte a [Broken Horn - T3 Boss]
JayM: (some study on that indicates that this horn contains enormous amounts of magical energy, it's stored in a capacitive state, in a way, and the horn is insanely efficient in storage. Well, no, this one WOULD have immense energy if he hadn't just immediately used it before loosing this horn)
Gravagar: Do we get fullheals after this then?
Julian: For your health
Julian: You get capped :D
