Split Worlds - Session 22
A light drizzle, a refreshing breeze that blows past you in a most delectable manner. You have the strangest feeling the very nature around you is thankful to you for your latest feats, giving you as much a respite as you can. Travel for the most part is easy, a thing here and there but nothing you're not used to as you travel the boreal paths. The further north you go, the colder it gets.
You seem to have landed on a beaten path, that leads vaguely northward, and it proceeds smoothly up until you find a… Rather classical snag in the road. A bridge, which according to the map you have should be here, has collapsed. The river that runs underneath it is apparently also very vast, but even that haven't stopped a thin layer of ice to cover the river itself.
Argent looks as if she's undergone…a major wardrobe change-for some inexplicable reason that…-thing-gave her a hell of a lot of strength despite annoying her. Or maybe it was due to her annoyance with it. Regardless, the dress doesn't look…too much like a dress anymore, what with armored plates attached everywhere now.
Jnezdie gave the new!armor a sideways glance once he first saw it.
Jack‘ rubs at his chin as they come to a halt in front of the river, and the bridge out. "Troublesome."
Argent: Shoulderplates, chestplates, the standard armor ’skirts' on the sides-nevermind that the lower part of the 'dress' now has layered armored plates along its edges.
Jnezdie: "It was cuter before. But, y'know, there's a certain charm to this'n."
Argent still has her hat
Argent: "…tch. Broken bridge, shouldn't be too much of an issue."
Sarah: "That has it's own style"
JayM: You could try to cross over the ice with a Running [TN 5] check that includes Sarah. Or you could try to be more inventive
Argent isn't going to really bother with creative or crazy stuff-ice is ice. And Sarah is grabbable in the rush.
Gavriel quietly approves of the armourdress. He does not approve of the broken bridge, however, even a little bit. "…not enough time or resources to build a new one."
[OOC] Argent: Dependable:Physical x2
JayM: The ice thin, if you don't go through fast enough you could end up in the river
Jnezdie: "And me without my ice skates. You know up'n TT they got this other kind o' skatin', with just one big ol' board."
Argent: "Just go already!" Argent is clocking it, even in the newly-armored outfit
Gavriel is not quite made of goes fast, but he'll do his best. [Aptitude: Physical]
Jnezdie shrugs, sliding across. [Trick: Physical][Double or Nothing]
Jack‘ frowns. Well, atleast he’s not the bulky, weighter sort of yeti. [nada]

[OOC] Gavriel: sjfhgjg the trick'd d10+1
[OOC] Gavriel: So that's… uh does Sarah eat a /success/ or a reel?
JayM: A reel
[OOC] Gavriel: Then I think that's a pass!
[OOC] Argent: If not we have some good postroll ones
The party dashes across the iced river. As they're midway across the ice behind them starts to crack omniously, a single crack spidering through the surface… However the party quickly makes it's way to the other, except Jnezdie, the ice beneath his feat shatters and breaks- But he leaps off just in time to to land on the other side fully dry
Jnezdie hops away from the crack, spinning gracefully in the air before landing with a bow.
(18*200/4) = 900
Gavriel: "Showoff." Was that a slight grin?
[OOC] JayM: +3 AP/+900 XP
Jnezdie: "You know it." He drinks 3 celebratory tonics.
Sarah lets go of whoever ended up carrying her "That was… Exciting"
Argent was more dragging Sarah by the arm. "It was the most expedient route." And with that, she starts off again.
Sarah smiles and lets Argent go ahead, walking behind her- To the rest of the party, is that the oddest look Sarah has ever given Argent, was she checking her out or staring weirdly at the dress? Sarah rubs her arms and moves on, regardless
The path is somewhat more treacherous here, there are far more 'natural' accidents like small animal holes, fallen trees and other such nuisances. Jnezdie gets the feeling that whereas everything looks perfectly natural, someone clearly prepared this path to be terribly difficult to cross for some reason
Jack‘ raises an eyebrow.
Jnezdie raises the opposite eyebrow.
Gavriel stares at Jack and Jnezdie. They do that on purpose, don’t they?
Argent largely doesn't have much of an issue with the path-annoyance at the fallen trees, but largely stepping around everything else. "Watch your step, everyone."
Jnezdie: "Hmm…"
Jnezdie nods and hops.
As you're walking, however, you hear's an odd rustling in the trees and then a clicking sound- Suddenly a swooshing noise and the heavy rustling of leaves, Sarah yells "Eep!" in a sharp voice as something grabs her. It's a large… Sort of insect, like a spider except it has four 'hands' with six long and thin fingers connected to the upper torso, whereas the lower torso has three pairs of hairy legs, it has slid down a tree, hanging upside-down, a pair of hands holding Sarah by the shoulders
Argent: "Oh, for the love of…"
Jnezdie: "Hey!" He draws his katana, facing the monster!
Argent drops into a fighting stance herself
Gavriel roars at the monster!
Sarah winces and for a moment nothing seems to happen… She looks up slightly, staring at the monster… It makes a few more clicking noises "Ah… Don't do that…" she says in a crying voice
Jack: "Erm. Sarah is not going to taste particularly good, you might as well put her down."
The monster- Which you now notice is wearing a dusty and rather damaged lab coat and isn't hanging from the tree from silk, but a rope tied to it's lower torso, makes a few clicking noises "Ah, I wasn't expecting a Kivaran here… And can you please speak in their language? I'm sure they're not understanding a single word"
The monster proceeds to make a few more weird clicking noises, it lets Sarah go and arches backwards, holding it's legs with it's hands- Jnezdie has the sensation it's laughing as hard as it can- And then proceeds to adjust himself and lower himself on the ground "Ahem- This language's a bit hard on the windpipe but okay. Sorry for the scare"
Jnezdie: "More friends?"
Sarah makes a face at him, and looks at Jnezdie "Y-yeah. They're friendly people, hum- I don't know this one, though"
Gavriel: "…what." He takes a step back, staring at the- the whatever. Sarah's friends have interesting ways of saying 'long time, no see'.
Argent: "…the clicking's a -language-?" Argent deadpans. "…and grabbing our employer tends to provoke a hostile reaction from us, just as a FYI."
Jack‘ scratches at the side of his face.
Jnezdie: "Well, I mean…"
Jnezdie: "If you wanted a hug there are other ways to get it, man."
The monster- man?- looks at you and nods, making a couple of clicking noises "You can call me Klirek on a jaar-long mission out here"
Jnezdie: "I can’t say many would take you up on that looking like that around here, though, so… y'know, sorry."
Jack: "A what logn now?"
Klirek: "Ahaha, that's why we're not the ones on diplomatic missions"
Klirek: "Uuhn… jaar is, uhn…"
Sarah: "A half-Cycle, Klirek"
Klirek: "Aha, thanks"
Klirek: "Either way, I didn't expect another agent here? Aren't you too far from base for your health?"
Jack: "Hum. They measure time differently on the other continents? Curious!"
Jnezdie: "Well, howdy there, Klirek-on-a-jarr-long-mission-out-there."
Gavriel frowns. He nearly filled this… person?… with lead. "Be more careful."
Jnezdie: "I'm Jnezdie, but you two carry on, carry on."
Sarah: "They do! The jaar isn't the measure of time in homeland, even, but since it's mine that's sponsoring this mission he's using the same calendar as we do"
Klirek: "Indeed. Say, how about I apologize for that scare? Want to have some tea at my home?"
Argent: "…up to Sarah, I'd say."
Klirek: "I'm not really big on the foodstuffs that mammals like but i'm pretty sure my wife's cakes could win even your tastes"
Jack‘ never failed to be amazed at how many more essentric people he’s met through traveling with Sarah as opposed to back in TT.
Jnezdie: "Aw man, you just said the magic word."
Sarah suddenly grins "Ah… I haven't had food like that in forever! Plus, uhm, i'm tired, it'd be nice to sit down and rest for a spell"
Gavriel nods. If Sarah's fine with it, then…
Klirek waves with one of his arms "Follow me if you would and- Do warn me of i'm going to fast, six legs are better at crossing this terrain than two"
Argent nods. Can't argue with the employer.
Jnezdie: "Now you just issued the magic challenge!" He grins, ready to chase after Klirek. "
Argent eyerolls at Jnezdie's statement there, but prepares to keep up nonetheless
He guides you through a series of paths hidden in the brush, he does do a fair bit better than an untrained person would, but he's by no means an athlete and you could outpace him anytime, and takes you finally to a… Small hill? He puts a hand on the incline and suddenly a light swishing noise, and then he walks right trough the wall, vanishing through it. Sarah follows right after, unfazed.
Jack: "Oho!"
Jack‘ glances around a few times, the mimics the hand motion and attempts to walk through the will.
Before moving, you hear her voice from within "Wow, nice. Who gave you the drivers for that? Looks like DXR14" and his answer "This one fellow named Re’Sheran"
Jnezdie watches Jack.
JayM: Your hand touches something that feels metallic… And as you walk through- The hill is but an illusion! A perfect illusion that you could ALMOST feel with your skin as you walked through.
Argent: "…That does look like it'd be something from the ruins" Argent comments as she follows the motions.
Jack: "AMAZING!"
Gavriel staaaaaaaaaaaares. .|
Jnezdie laughs and charges the hill!
Gavriel eventually, pronounces: "Frivolous. At best." He's the last one through.
JayM: On the other side, a short passage that's been cut into the actual hill and into a… Residence, pretty comfy indeed. It's small, mind, a small living room/dinner room combo, there's a rather long table, set for two right now, but no food there yet. Across the room is- Mats and plushy pillows in the ground circling around a type of wide rectangular glassy panel, wherein images are showing. There is a rectangular box connected by wiring to the panel, and four things with a handful of buttons are stacked actop this box
As you enter, Klirek clicks about loudly, and other clicks are heard from across a doorway. A little while longer a different type of insectoid- This one with a darker shade and red stripes across it's torso, comes out of the doorway. It looks at you "Ah, natives! How delightful, we haven't had visitors in forever! I'm Kralie, Klirek's wife and aide" her voice is two tones more bassy than Klirek's
Sarah looks around and takes a few deep breaths "Ahh, feels good to be in this kind of place again"
Jack: "Pffttphaw, you wish, Gavriel!"
Jack: "You're just jealous you dind't think of it first - I know I am!"
Gavriel: "…perhaps."
Jnezdie: "Hey there, Kralie, I'm… Jnezdie." He stares at her, at Klirek, the room arond them, the room over there…
Jack‘ then spins around and bows to their host. "I am known as Jack!"
Argent: "Hm. How much here is from the ruins, if I might ask?" Argent asks with…no real semblance of tact, before introducing herself. "Callsign Argent, by the way."
JayM: That room is a kitchen unlike any you’ve seen before. You're certainly going to be mystified at what those things are
Kralie nods to Jnezdie, Jack and Argent in turn "Nothing, really. Was a pain to set all this up, I tell you"
Jnezdie: "Jeez. I don't know. If you don't mind me sayin', all'o this around here's about as foreign to a ruin to me. All the same, with less dust." He doesn't say it, but he thinks . o O ( and the same amount of weird creatures. )
Sarah: "Oh, right. I didn't introduce myself, i'm Sarah, with Knights"
Argent: "Brought over, then? I see."
Gavriel glances around, curiously, without trying to be rude. Of course, his eye's going to boggle one way or the other- "Gavriel Martim Gurutz." Full name, still, but no rank this time. They're too far north for that sort of thing.
Klirek claps his upper hands- Jnezdie why'd you get the sensation that was a shrug?- "It's alright, we don't know much about this whole ruin thing, that's with- Well, with Sarah's group, I guess"
Klirek: "Still! My little honeydrop, why don't we show some more courtesy? Don't we have some cake ready? Could you set up the tea?"
Kralie: "Oh, dear, you're right! You all must be pretty tired, to be out here in the boonies! I'll whip up something fast for you!"
Kralie rushes back to the kitchen, while Klirek sets up chairs for you around the table, he himself doesn't uses, not like his body supports sitting "Please, sit down"
Klirek: "Sorry if this is a little uncomfortable, we're a researcher pair so most of our space is taken up by the laboratory"
Jack‘ tilts his head. Apparently they expect company from time to time! Jack nods and takes a seat. "understnadable!"
Gavriel nods in complete understanding. "Same thing happens where I’m from. Everything is…" -strange, bizarre, unusual- "…fine."
Klirek: "Ah, could you tell me a bit more about where you're from? Wait, no, better, could you share maybe a little bit of… Medical science, perhaps?"
Argent: "Well then." Their hospitality and mannerisms are more uncomfortable to Argent than the fact that it's a lab. Regardless, she sits down, not bothering to adjust for the dress-anyone looking notes she's wearing pants underneath the dress skirt anyway
Klirek: "We're xenobiologists, you see? And we're working on this thing called Seraph's Leash, but we've kind of hit a snag"
Jnezdie hops into a seat.
Soon enough, Kralie brings back a platter with tea, she also brings a pretty big chocolate cake
Jnezdie 's eyes are immediately drawn to the cake. "…uh? Oh! A snag?"
Jack‘ scratches at the side of his face.
Jack: "Well, I’m not really a doctor, but it's mostly potions with the odd surgery here and there for drastic injuries that need to be set right."
Klirek: "Yeah, you people are kind of mystifying and borderline unnatural. I mean, look just at how much you eat. Anyone else but you people would die of starvation!"
Argent: "…Unless you're asking me for how to strike to injure people in a fight, I've got nothing for medical knowledge."
Jnezdie: "And… yeah, more or less what Jack said. We highjacked an automed, yeah? Been using that here and there."
Jack: "Not that that's even our technnology, ha!"
Jnezdie: "Yup, we totally stole that sucker."
Jack‘ blinks.
Jack: "Everyone where you’re from has an appitite as large as Sarah?"
Klirek: "Ooh, cool"
Argent: Well, that wasn't true for Argent-she did know a bit of field medicine.
Jnezdie: "Also I'm just naturally hot, in case anyone was asking." He rolls up his sleeves and shows off his silvery patterns.
Klirek: "Well, I wouldn't say exactly as large as hers? Hers is a bit more given, I presume, she looses body mass at an accelerated pace. But not much more, I guess"
Kralie: "I can say, you do look striking, for a milk-drinker"
JayM: You're not sure what to make of her tone
Argent: But that probably wasn't anything more than basic- cue eyeroll at Jnezdie. "So what's this 'Seraph's Leash' deal anyway?"
Jack: "…huh."
Jnezdie thinks for a second and then nods approvingly. "I'll take that."
Kralie pours tea for each one of you, gently putting your cups in front of you
Klirek: "Ah, well… How to place it, I think we're actually at non-disclosure orders?"
Klirek: "What say you, miss?"
Sarah: "Ah… You're here on Kivara's orders, you know your job"
Klirek: "Ah, well! Hum… Suffice to say that all water out there is poisonous for the non-natives. The Seraph's Leash is kind of a counter to that!"
Argent: "I can respect that." Argent nods, before tasting a sip of the tea-trying to make sure it doesn't seem to be laced or spiked with anything.
Jack: "(…Where in the world would they get all the food?)"
Jnezdie: "So weird."
JayM: Everyone, Danger Sense [TN 7]
Gavriel peers at the cake. …it's probably trustworthy. Paranoia doesn't always pay. "Hn. Our medical science is.. primitive, compared to what we have seen in the ruins."
Jnezdie has a sudden burst of intuition. [Expertise: Danger Sense] [Aptitude: Wilderness] [
Argent has a sixth-sense for this sort of thing, at least. [Lucky:Wilderness]
Gavriel is still paranoid, however. [Aptitude]
Jack goes with the flow. [No Reels]

JayM: Good enough
The oddest feeling… Gavriel and Argent this weird sensation is familiar, so familiar- Of being herded by a foe, without noticing- Gavriel's eyes dart around- The table's awfully close to a corner, and the way Klirek and Kralie are set on the table- This would be a perfect ambush. Sarah raises a hand as Argent raises the cup of tea to prevent her from doing it "It's poisoned"
Kralie: "W-what? Why'd you say it's poisoned?"
(300*18/4) = 1350
[OOC] JayM: +5 AP/+1350 XP
Jnezdie: "Just don't say the cake's poisoned too, I can do without tea."
Sarah: "Most likely is as well"
Klirek: "Why… ARE you saying that?"
Jnezdie: "Jeez, guys. Calm down. You don't want us to actually believe that it's poisoned, right?"
Sarah: "You forgot to take down your calendar" Sarah points to the other side of the room, wherein the strangest calendar is, there are a few passes circled in red
Argent slams the cup down, looking irate. "I was testing it for that, but…"
Klirek: "Oh…"
Gavriel puts the teacup down, stands behind his chair.
Sarah: "See… Kivarans are kind of cursed… During a period called Hunter's Luna they kind of… Hunt, anything and everything living, for some reason preffering other people"
Jack‘ blinks, glances over to Sarah. "Should I be outraged, or is this a silly mix up…?"
Jack: "Hm. That sound sliek outraged to me."
Sarah: "They can’t help it. Often they lock themselves up and leave the keys to someone else during that period. We kind of came across them the worst time"
Jack‘ nods to himself, then hurls the teacup across the room in as indignat a way as in possible.
Jnezdie: "That is the strangest hunting ritual. Poisoned cake and tea?"
Argent stands, cracking her knuckles. "If that’s the case, we're leaving, now."
Sarah: "They don't get any less intelligent when that period hits"
Kralie: "Ah, well" where did she pull two rifles out of? (under the pillows) and tosses them to Klirek "Nope, we're having you for dinner"
Kralie herself draws four of the weirdest pistols you have ever seen, they don't even have loaders
Jnezdie looks at the party, then looks at those two.
Jnezdie: "This is really happening."
Jack‘ then slams in hands on the table befoer getting up. "This is an outrage! Show some self control, we are leaving this instant! Sir, Madam… GOOD DAY!"
Argent: "Then go to hell!"
Argent drops into a combat stance immediately

Jnezdie: "Man…" He groans. "(I really wanted some cake, too.)"
JayM: They’ve got your escape cut off
Jnezdie stands from his seat.
JayM: However, you're not cornered at least and have room to move about
Sarah: "Hum… If we could incapacitate them and tie down down for a couple of passes? They don't really have much in the way of self-control any longer"
Jnezdie: "Way ahead o' ya' there, Sarah."
Gavriel quietly slings his gun off his back. It is much bigger than their rifles. "I will endeavour not to strike anywhere vital, although I don't know their anatomy."
Argent: "If you insist we pull our strikes to make sure nothing lethal happens, fine."
Klirek raises both rifles, each one held by two hands, and fiddles with them, loading a glowing crimson cartridge. He levels both of them at Argent, and fires [Explosive Impact] [Explosive Impact]

Jnezdie rolled 1d10*3+264*3 and got 9 ( Total: 819.0 )
JayM: That is like, 8x it's current HP, mostly
And leaving Klirek with a large gash across the midsection, frozen over, he passes out
JayM: Victory!
JayM rolled 2d100 and got 51, 51 ( Total: 102 ) **
Argent clearly stole all the stuff that could be usable
[OOC] JayM: +2400 XP/+2720 Gil/+18 AP
Jnezdie: "…well let's make sure they won't -die- die."
Jnezdie: "Think they got anything else around here to eat?"
Jack‘ shakes his head at Jnezdie.
Sarah goes over to them and looks them over "Don’t worry… Kivaran vital systems are pretty deep inside their bodies" she looks around "Uhm… Can you help me a moment, first?"
Jnezdie: "Don't even, man- I have chocolate cake on the brain now."
Argent: "…"
Argent: "Reminds me."
Jnezdie sheathes his katana and ambles over to Sarah.
Argent extends a palm, firing an Aurabolt. At the cake.
Sarah points over to another open room, this one with a heavy door, it has a keypad there "Let's take them to that room, and then… I'll need to reprogram the lock so they can't get out again. Hum, any of you good with cyphers?"
JayM: God, Argent
JayM: Don't make a mess D:
JayM: There were cleaner ways of disposing of it
Jack: "…you could have just put it in the waste bin."
Jnezdie: "I'm pretty sure Jack's really good at pushin' buttons, if that's what you mean."
Argent: It probably fried it if anything, the way I'm imagining those blasts
Jack: "You only get to make indignant messes before or during a scuff, not after. Your ettiquette is terrible, Argent!"
Sarah: "Nah, I can do the button part, I just need a very good code" "
Jnezdie: "Oh."
Argent: "Screw etiquette. They tried to poison us."
Jnezdie: "This is so they don't revive, escape, and hunt someone else."
Jnezdie: "I mean if they got desperate they would have -ate the cake- and well."
Gavriel trudges over. "…may be able to help."
Jnezdie: "Anyway.
Jnezdie: "Naw, I got no ciphers, I don't think."
Jnezdie: "I can try, though."
Sarah: "Kivarans actually, hum…"
Sarah: "Actually, oddly, they don't get kind of desperate or anything they just… Have this overwhelming desire to hunt but if there's no real prey around it's as if they never even suffered from Hunter Luna"
Sarah: "It's the weirdest instinct they got"
The two insects are ungodly heavy, maybe all of those chitinous plates, but they're put in the afore-mentioned room and then Sarah gets to get the lock set up. She's going to give your math a run for it's money, you're not exactly sure why she's asking those exact questions but if the lock is based on that, it should be pretty hard to break
Jnezdie shakes his head. "So weird."
Sarah: "Insects are weird, yes"
Argent: "…eh, fine…I'll see if there's something I can hear from it, I guess." She steps over and helps out with the cipher or something
After that is done with, Sarah lays down on the pillows "Hum… Since they just started their cycle… It should take till the end of the Pass until it's over. Can we wait until then? I don't want to leave them alone, really"
Gavriel does the best he can. Which, given his Material training, is probably pretty good, actually.
Sarah: "(it's kind of scary not being able to trust yourself)"
Jnezdie: "I could take a bit to patch up, yeah."
Gavriel: "…tch. Are Kivarans known for their heartfelt apologies?" He glances at Sarah, though, and nods. "It's true that we could use the shelter."
Argent: "If you insist." Argent cracks her neck a bit.
Jack‘ glances around, then plops down on the fluffiest looking thing in the room.
Sarah: "Actually, they’re a pretty polite and warm people! The sort of thing you'd expect from desert-dwellers"
Sarah: "I'm pretty sure they'll be beside themselves as soon as they're back"
Jnezdie: "Aw, I love a good grillin'. O' the conscience kind."
Jnezdie: "Actually I don't, that's just petty."
Jnezdie: "We'll be here for 'em, yeah?"
Argent: "…right." Still keeping the weapons. Given how much she got perforated, they owe that much.
Jnezdie splays out all akimbo over some pillows.
There's plenty fluffy pillows, although no real seats aside from the (now damaged) chairs. And time will pass, and you get to rest. During this Pass Sarah looks pretty pensieve for a while, and eventually cracks and decides to introduce a one of the things inside here to you, mostly that glass pane, in which moving images are. You've seen illusion shows by the ethereals, but nothing exactly like this. There's some sort of show going on. She ALSO prepares some good food for you- Although something is vastly off with the food here
Argent sits down on a more bare part of the floor.
Gavriel nods. Besides, defeat means friendship, right? He lowers himself to the ground next to Sarah, grumbling about his hand cannon, repairing some finicky bit.
Argent: "Hold it, Sarah, before you serve it."
Sarah: "W-what?"
Argent: "Did you make sure they didn't poison the other stuff in here?"
Jnezdie staaaaaaaaaaaaares at the show.
JayM: It's something adventurous, about a group of heroes who go out to defend some fantasy kingdom from a comically evil villain
Sarah: "I'm sure. Kivaran fangs are poisonous, which is why I thought they probably would have poisoned what they served"
Sarah: "I'm not sure they got any real poison around"
Argent: "…Right, just making sure."
Despite the food smelling and looking as if it'd be just as welcoming as the food she prepared for you during that one holiday break, it's terribly… Unfilling. As if it was gone before it hits your stomach. Sarah is mildly worried at that, though doesn't explains why
And as the Pass winds down you hear knocking from the door the two are stuck behind. Sarah goes check it.
Jnezdie shouts over his shoulder. "OI! WHAT'S THE PASSWORD?"
Argent: "…kgh" Argent was largely doing maintenance on her weapons for the time being.
Klirek: "I… Don't know?"
Argent: Awesome maintenance kit is awesome
Sarah looks at something over the keypad, it has numbers on it "It's good, you're not supposed to!" she taps the actual password and the door opens "Okay, system says you're good now"
Kralie: "Ahh… Sorry, sorry, sorry, so much!" she sounds kind of desperate "Of the whole mwa you go and show up in the one hari we're in Hunter's Luna…"
Sarah: "It's okay, it's not the first time! It comes with working with Kivarans. At least I wasn't alone this time, but…"
Argent: "…right."
Gavriel glances up, shrugs. He's chill.
Sarah: "What WERE you thinking about doing with us? It'd be a death sentence to eat any native of a knight"
Klirek: "The fact that we don't get less intelligent doesn't means we don't get dumb, you know" an odd shudder "It'd have been a suitable end of us at any rate…"
Klirek: "Still… I didn't think that Angelic thing behaved… That way. At least this was some good information we got out of it"
Sarah: "Ah?"
Argent: "…My attack there."
Argent: "And it normally doesn't."
Klirek: "Oh? Usually how is it?"
By now they're moving again, and you're back at the living room
Argent: "Definitely no wings."
Kralie: "Oh, dear, you've still got that movie on loop?"
Jnezdie: "Eh?"
Gavriel raises an eyebrow, amused. Perhaps they -could- provide some data, after all; that'd make him feel rather better about having to fight them.
Klirek: "Ahh… No, that is pretty… Irrelevant, I meant the water"
Klirek: "Does the water always… How to place it… Feel that way?"
Kralie: "Ah, what's on there" she points to the glass panel "Of this whole debacle I actually am feeling guilty not leaving something actually good for you there to watch"
Klirek: "You're so silly…"
Argent: "Feel what way-wait, there's OTHER STUFF on there?" Argent looks to be in relief of the possibility of something other than that show.
Jnezdie: "What, really?"
Jack: "I don't think any of us have been hit by a normal one before, haha."
Jnezdie: "It was pretty good… I mean, there's been hacks that've put on worse shows."
Kralie: "Yeah, here…" she goes over and presses- Something on the screen you can't actually see what it is, but it changes to a different one, this one set in a desert "Hum… I got mostly silly animations and documentaries"
Jnezdie: "But I try not to think about what it actually is, yeah? So there's mor-"
Kralie: "I'm not sure you'd get the animations, though?"
Argent: "…" Argent has never seen a desert in her life.
Gavriel stares at the screen, his attention, as is Argent's, finally caught.
Argent stares, indeed
Klirek: "so you don't know the difference…" he looks at Sarah "Sarah, i've had a small issue with your people's Chained Beast in the past (my bad, I didn't follow safety regulations) and… It felt the same as the Angelic"
Jnezdie cocks his head like a curious dog.
It's a… Documentary, you'd say. Talking about desert wildlife of a faraway place. The most interesting thing is the clear sky and the crimson orb high in the sky, and the darkness and white dots in the sky. It's talking about some sort of snakes who live in the desert
Jnezdie: "Yo, where's all the…" He cocks his head the other way.
Sarah: "That isn't… Possible, unless… Well, i'll pass that on, did that help, though?"
Kralie: "All the what?"
Jack: "Quite the imagine the creates of these images had. A land withing rain? Gwahahaha."
[OOC] Jack: imagination^
Jnezdie: "There's no clouds. How are… what?"
Argent: "…This is completely beyond anything I've imagined."
Jack: "Well, nonsense is certainly enteraining ever now and then, Jnezdie!"
Kralie: "Ahaha, no, that's real. It's the Likeshan Basin in my homeland, Kivara" she crosses her two lower arms "I guess it looks odd, you guys always have had those clouds here. Let's just state that other lands look different!"
Kralie: "The clouds are very important to your lands"
Jnezdie wrinkles his eyebrows. "It sure is, Jack."
Jack‘ stares at Kralie like she just said she say the leaders of the Martial and Etheral Kingdoms making out or something.
Gavriel shakes his head. This isn’t- but- there's nothing else -but- clouds, so what are-
Argent has had her mind blown
Jack: "(They must still be on their high.)"
Klirek: "Dear… I think that you're more or less CROSSING our non-intervention limits. We're not supposed to mention outside biomes to unauthorized personnel, you got any idea what a diplomatic disaster it COULD be if all the stuff about outsiders just kind of spreads uncontrolled?"
Kralie: "A-ah-oh, oh!"
Sarah: "Hum… Well, it's not like you're showing this to everyone and… It's not like they're not going to learn everything during this journey"
Klirek: "Oh, what's your journey about?"
Sarah: "Hum… I'm trying to be sure of just what Phoenix and Ultima are, also trying to locate our lost ship. I'm not really on the diplomatic side, Lillian and Rosalind are on that front"
Klirek: "Hum… I hear they've been having… Issues, is that true?"
Jack: "…Lillian is a diplomat?"
Jack: "Your country si even zanier than ours!"
Sarah: "Oh, hum… Ahaha, kind of"
Sarah: "She's the team leader, she doesn't actually makes contact, though, since she can't get too far from base"
Sarah: "But, speaking of that… The diplomatic teams have already contacted the heads of all three countries, but are having outside interference, i'm not sure what's up, though"
Jnezdie leans back. -Desert-.
Klirek: "Great Sandweaver, we're babbling here! Come one, chill out for as long as you feel like, really, and feel free to continue on your journey as you see fit"
Argent: "…I see."
Argent: "Sarah, your decision as to when."
Gavriel takes a deep breath. Varg are patient, Varg are as the mountains, and eventually, Sarah will see fit to explain things to them, and in time, it might be the truth needed to stop the war for good, and if they are lucky, they'll be in one piece by the time they get Sarah where she needs to go, which is what matters.
Klirek: "Aaaaand really, no more talking too much, we're probably getting into trouble here. However! I am likely to bug *chuckle* you about some technical details"
Gavriel opens his eye, slowly, mind tranquil.
Argent: "What sort of technical details?"
Klirek: "Mostly medical!"
JayM: And [Session End]
