EC Session 2.1

Afternoon, Gaial 3 Pyrday
[OOC] Hector: I put down a bunch of derivations for my defense scores so I'd always know what's what.
[OOC] ORN: evasion 23, arm 26, Marm 14
It has been an…unusual…couple of days, with Ahiru pretending to be King - with much advice from Sakha.
[OOC] Hector: Evasion 38, Arm 35, MEva 19, MArm 20
[OOC] Sakha: Arm 16, Eva 15, MARM 26, MEVA 22
[OOC] WC GM: I just needed Hector's, as he still doesn't put that on the wiki >_>
[OOC] ORN: waiting a level for all the new armor and weapon to unlock
[OOC] Ahiru: ARM 30, Eva 22, MARM 30, MEva 21 - but we want to share
Construction of the robots to stop exploration has ceased, and the army is now focused on fighting the monsters instead of on trying to eradicate non-city settlements.
Which leaves Shaft safe for a long time.
[OOC] Pak: Also, rebuild efforts for Forestburg!
[OOC] WC GM: Well, yeah. ;)
[OOC] Cassie: Heh.
Now you have gathered at the eastern temple. Somehow, you've shaken the courtiers and would-be advisors that tried to descend upon you to //"help run the kingdom".
Hector brokered a deal to get food for Shaft at a reduced price and sent a message that he's still looking for a new place for them to live. Even with the king technically out of commission, he still wants them to move somewhere else so that future kings won't oppress them.
You get the feeling they'll be running things in King's absence.
The tunnel away is as much to help you get away from them, as to find out just what danger does lie ahead - not to mention, see what's up with Fakir and Milf.
Thus it is that no one but you sees you at the open hatch to the tunnel leading under the sea.
[OOC] WC GM: Recap done, and - go!
Hector walks forward. "Alright, let's get going. This tunnel's going to travel through itself."
Pak: "…Wait, what?"
[OOC] Hector: Not…going to travel through itself.
Sakha: "Those robots will still be around, now lets kick their butts, shall we and head on our way to the homeland?"
ORN: "In that case why would we need to get going?"
ORN shimmers at the thought of breaking more bots
Hector: "Ah, shut up and follow me."
Cassie: "Lets just go, ORN."
There are indeed four bots blocking the way.
Pak: "Kay."
Pak: "…Oh!"
Pak: "There's the robots."
Pak points at them.
Cassie: "Um…who that and why, please?"
Sakha smiles and checks some notes. "Go ahead guys, I'll be there in a minute."
Ahiru: "Let's go! Let's go! Fakir's on the other end!"
Cassie steps into the tunnel and begins to walk towards the robots.
Ahiru rushes in and attacks the first bot right off.
ORN jumps
ORN: //(target: bot A)

[OOC] Hector: Free combat round?
Cassie: "Ahiru! Um…shoot!"
[OOC] Ahiru: Can you jump in a tunnel?
[OOC] Ahiru: ORN hits his head!
[OOC] ORN: yes. yes we can. as long as its a jump attack, tunnels are little deterrent!
[OOC] ORN: or, ya know, I could just jump up, then jump/boost myself back down from there
[OOC] Hector: Suspend your disbelief.
[OOC] Ahiru: Oky, how about ORN Phasejumps?
[OOC] Hector: Yo, WC. Is this a preemptive strike or something?
WC GM: Battle order: ORN:19 Hector:19 Pak:17 Cassie:16 BotSentinelD:15 BotSentinelB:14 Ahiru:12 Sakha:11 BotSentinelA:11 BotSentinelC:11

[OOC] Ahiru: Oh yeah, I rush in first and I'm with the second last initiative score
ORN said it up there. jump. target bot A
[OOC] WC GM: Hector!
[OOC] Ahiru: Command?

[OOC] Hector: Not talking about Four Murasame, mind you. She is delicious cake.
[OOC] WC GM: Actually, this may be the best time.
[OOC] Sakha: Okay, I'll use water, they're water weak right?

Sakha: "I've been saving this for you!"
Sakha smiles cynically at her opponents with one hand on her hips, her eyes however smoulder with cold fire. She puts one hand on her shoulder and turns her back haughtily causing a wave of mystical cold to strike her enemies as she snubs them. ~Cold Shoulder~

Hector scrapes a few icicles off his nose. //"Good show, Sakha."
ORN lands in the middle of nowhere and looks kinda sad
Ahiru grabs a potion
[OOC] WC GM: 643 XP & 296 Gil each
Hector picks up the Electro Marbles and tosses them to Pak.
ORN grabs nothing
Pak blinks.
Sakha: "They hurt Pak last time, I had to get them back for that."
Pak passes one to Sakha.
Sakha: "Thanks bro, you never know whan you have to fall back on a mana-store."
Pak: "Here, neechan. Thanks for that!"
Also rolled Hector and got Minimum Total XP for level 10: 22500. Additional XP needed for level 11: 5000. Availability for level 10: 82. Starting Gil for level 10: 5000.
ORN: "This unit requires a faster ballistic trajectory"
Hector yawns. "Well, that got the blood flowing."
Hector cracks his knuckles as he continues down the tunnel.
Cassie sheathes her sword and lets out a sigh of relief.
ORN follows
Pak picks up a potion.
The tunnel stretches on…
Pak: "Wait, there's one more…"
Sakha: "I'm finally going to see the truth…"
Pak shrugs and pockets it.
ORN: "Truth regarding ?"
Sakha: "Where the Mithra came from."
Sakha drinks a tonic as she walks.
?: "…came from…"
?: "…destination entered…"
ORN: "are there not adult mithras, as with the creators?"
Twin eyes gleam from the darkness.
Sakha: "Yes there are, but this is where THEIR creators came from."
Ahiru looks at the lights.
Sakha seems oblivious
Pak suddenly feels nervous.
ORN stares at the lights, weapon ready
ORN: "Therefore you seek the home of your creators creators."
Pak: "W-wait… What if… what if… what if we run into those, those long-ear demons, sis…?"
A metal beak reaches down from the dark and snatches up Sakha, pulling her out of sight.
Hector: "What the!"
Pak: "KYaa!! Sakhaaa!!"
ORN jumps after it
Hector: "Battle positions!"
Sakha: "Then I'll just… AAAHH!"
Pak spins around in a panic.
Sakha and ORN and lost to the party's sight.
Ahiru: "… I want to go to where the mithra came from too…"
She says to the ceiling
[OOC] ORN: jump does allow me a fair bit of distance
Cassie: "Wait! Ahiru!"
Hector: "Everyone! Stay low!"
Hector: "If we can get a good look at what took Sakha, we can track it."
Pak lies flat on the ground, whimpering. "W-what's going on?"
Hector ducks low and leans against the wall.
Sakha: "It's okay I think! It's a robotic chocobo!"
She calls back
Pak: "…A what?!"
Cassie lays close to the ground
Hector looks up to where Sakha's voice came from. "Is it going to eat you?"
ORN: "There appears to be no current danger"
Sakha: "NO!"
Hector: "Hm."
Cassie gets up, and dusts herself off
Ahiru pouts. "It took Sakha when she said the Mithra home, but not me…"
ORN looks around the giant mech
Hector stands up. "Well, then. Yo! Show me this mithra home, whoever you are. I don't appreciate you taking my crew members."
[OOC] ORN: machina lore perhaps?
As you get closer, you see that it is indeed a mechanical chocobo.
Large enough for the party to ride.
[OOC] WC GM: Go for it.
ORN rolled 1d100 and got 56 ( Total: 56 )
ORN: //16 over my flat score…

[OOC] WC GM: Fail
ORN has no knowledge of such a thing.
Cassie gets on the chobo, and it feels a bit cold to her legs
Ahiru runs to catch up with the Chocobo and hops on.
Hector walks over to it and gently puts his hand on it.
Pak: "How do we get onto its back?"
Ahiru runs to catch up with the Chocobo and hops on.
Hector walks over to it and gently puts his hand on it.
Pak: "How do we get onto its back?"
Hector: "Hm."
The chocobo plucks up Pak on his words.
Soon depositing Pak next to Sakha.
Hector: "Guess I should ride too, then."
Pak acks~! //"Kyaaa~ This doesn't feel right…"
Pak plops down next to Sakha.
Sakha snuggles Pak.
ORN: "Information on this machina class is not within known creator databanks."
Pak blushes.
ORN: "This unit cannot guarantee safety or hostility."
Pak: "I-i'm glad you're safe, sis…"
Hector attempts to climb on.
ORN stares curiously at pak and sakha
Hector has little trouble climbing.
Hector: "Huh. So where does this thunderhorse take us?"
The chocobo ignores anyone but the two mithra.
Cassie climbs into a sitting position behind Hector
Sakha: "Let's get going to the Mithra homeland."
Pak: "Orn, get up here!"
The chocobo immediately begins striding quickly down the tunnel.
Sakha: "He's behind you."
Everyone is aboard.
Hector scratches the back of his head. "Well, damn. It'd be nice if we had one of these earlier, huh?"
ORN already on
Cassie: "Yes, I agree."
Sakha: "It only listens to mithra… probably so the enemy couldn't follow."
It is difficult to tell, given the darkness and the monotony of the tunnel, but this chocobo appears to be going much faster than normal chocobos.
ORN: "This unit would like to inquire as to how fur blushes"
ORN staring straight at pak
Pak: "Oh."
Pak: "…I don't have fur! T_T"
Pak: "Well… on my tail and ears…"
Sakha: "We're not furry, we're just fuzzy."
Pak: "Yeah."
ORN: "But it was also red."
Cassie holds Hector tight now, as everything feels like it is zipping by fast
Pak: "…Wha?"
Hector :O
Hector attempts to get Cassie to loosen her grip.
Cassie does loosen her grip a bit and says "Sorry."
ORN wonders if he is supposed to also hug something.
Pak: "Er… in that case, it'd be because…"
Pak mumbles.
ORN stares curious
Ahiru sees ORN looking left out and hugs ORN/
[OOC] ORN: hector: ow. poor cassie
Pak: "…I actually don't know."
ORN sparkles and nods
Hector: "Oh, geez. Orn, just leave 'im alone."
Sakha: "I wonder how long it will take to get to the end of this tunnel."
The tunnel goes on and on…
Eventually, you see something blink past…was that a skeleton?
Sakha: "Chocobo, can you tell us how much longer?"
ORN: "what was that skeleton?"
Ahiru: "It was yellowy."
Cassie: "Hector. Sorry about hugging to tight. I just felt like I was going to fall off. This Chocobo feels like it is going fast. "
Hector: "You don't need to apologize or explain."
Chocobo: "Estimated time of arrival at point of origin 36 hours."
Pak: "…Wa…"
Cassie: "Okay."
Sakha: "… Did anyone bring Cards…?"
Chocobo: "Estimate possibly incorrect - travel unit has engaged in substantial maintenance since previous journey."
Pak pulls out cards.
Pak: "I have some."
Hector chuckles at the chocobo referring to itself as a unit. "He sounds like a relative of yours, Orn."
Sakha: "Ooo how about we all play a game of Trump?"
ORN: "This unit would request travel unit information, maintenence description and construction data"
ORN pokes the chocobo
ORN sparkles, maybe seductively ?
[OOC] ORN: its… worth a shot ???
The chocobo ignores ORN.
Sakha: "…"
She sighs. "Chocobo, what is your… travel unit information, maitenance description and construction data?"
Cassie lets go of Hector for a bit, and she begins to figit with something. She then puts her arms back around Hector, but not in a vice grip like she had before.
Chocobo: "This unit created to assist in travel through underwater tunnels."
Pak: "Did anyone pack any food?"
Cassie: "Um..not really."
Pak: "…Hmm."
ORN: "this unit can obtain various healthy minerals from passing stalactites. These were generally unappreciated by creators however."
Pak thinks about this. "If only one of us had a food-creating spell…"
Chocobo: "Tunnel network disrupted - this unit isolated from other tunnels for past 99.8 years."
Ahiru pulls out a few packages. "I went to the kitchen with Sakha as the King and got them to give us travel food."
Pak: "Oh! Yay~"
Pak hmms. "I still wish I could make food with magic, but oh well."
Hector thinks for a minute. "Hey, Orn. Do you have the ability to check to see if certain plants and fungus are poisonous?"
ORN: "this unit can supply travel unit with known information on tunnel disruption and sealing."
Sakha: "She wouldn't have thought of it without me."
ORN: "I appologise. Biological materials are mostly outside of this unit‘s field of kitchen-expertise."
Sakha takes a package and pulls out a meat pie.
Hector: "Ah, well. Hey, maybe those mithra could upgrade you so that you could."
ORN stares
ORN stares over at the mithra
Ahiru opens a differently colored package. It’s full of carrots, lettuce and tomatoes.
Hector: "Not these mithra. The ones at our destination."
Hector: "The only machine Pak knows anything about is a slot machine."
ORN: "Are non-creators capable of upgrading various qualities on creator-designed frames?"
Cassie giggles, and looks over Hector's shoulder
Ahiru: "I was improved by Grav, and he didn't make me to begin with. At least… I don't think he did…"
ORN thinks for a moment
Pak oohs as he finds a package of Fried Chocobo~
[OOC] Ahiru: And thus enters a story reason for ORN to get new transformations :P
ORN: "This unit‘s float-core may be inadequate for speeds required in combat. Any aid or advice would be appreciated"
[OOC] ORN: oh I`ve plenty of THOSE planned ;p
Pak looks up from his pile of chicken. "Mmph?"
Cassie looks at the food, and shakes her head
[OOC] Ahiru: You know… I just realized that every time Nova plays with us, he’s some sort of machine.
Hector gets a turkey sandwich out of the food-pack.
[OOC] ORN: er, I‘ve only played once
[OOC] Hector: He’s a mechafag. What do you expect?
[OOC] Ahiru: Will you be a machine in Saiai's hame too, weren't you in the BESM game?
[OOC] ORN: granted my last character was an engineer but those are an awesome class
[OOC] Ahiru: As the Eva-alike?
[OOC] ORN: what besm game?
[OOC] WC GM: You're thinking of Chibi.
[OOC] Ahiru: Oh
[OOC] ORN: but yes. I do loves teh mechas.
Cassie: "I'm not hungry right now. I'll wait."
[OOC] Sakha: So we're passing the time by playing cards and chowing down… anything exciting happen on the trip?
As you go on, eventually you see more and more things flash by - most of them skeletons without a doubt.
[OOC] ORN: if saiai will have me, dunno yet. do kinda wanna play a bluemage. However yes, I do love mechanical stuff. hell its even me job
Ahiru looks at ORN. "They're still yellowy."
ORN: //(humanoid or otherwise; ie gigantic?)

Pak: "Chocorobo, why are there so many skeletons on this road?"
ORN: "perhaps attempts to cross the tunnel by foot"
Some of them apparently smashed against the wall. All of them with tails - mithra, apparently.
ORN: o.o
?: "This unit was only available unit in tunnel for previous transit."
Sakha: "I'd take that to mean ORN was right."
Chocobo: "Some travellers fell off. Some travellers forced to try passage by foot - most with inadequate supplies, or in improper health."
Cassie: "Ah."
Chocobo: "Roughly ten percent survived journey."
Pak: "…Can you make sure we don't fall off?"
Sakha: "I think people would have fallen off because of greed and self-preservation to get away from the enemy."
Chocobo: "This unit designed for safe passage for groups of up to ten."
ORN: "perhaps this is the reason for all the hugging."
Chocobo: "Groups of a thousand or more not safe."
Pak: "…A thousand…"
Sakha: "Ten percent would only be one hundred…"
ORN: "This travel unit was impressively overengineered"
Pak: "And… only 10 of those would be males if they were lucky."
Chocobo: "This unit made two and a half round trips. Remaining mithra travelled by foot. This unit counted twenty out of one thousand that survived that way."
Hector: "Whoa."
Sakha: "Why only two and a HALF what happened?"
Chocobo: "From what this unit overheard, approximating zero percent survival rate among those failing to enter the tunnel before it was sealed."
Hector: "Well, if the starting point is the other side, then half a trip ends at this side."
ORN: "Tunnels were sealed to avoid further contact with opposite ends. It is likely any survivors managing to get through after sealing would have been eliminated."
Chocobo: "No one remaining at origin point after third trip from origin point. No reason to return to origin point."
ORN: "This Unit would request information on the point or origin."
The chocobo continues to ignore the non-mithra.
Cassie: "No reason? Something bad happen?"
ORN: "no travellers remaining. The travel unit did not return upon embarking the final group."
Sakha wants to know too but is annoyed at having to trpeat it for orn. //"What do you know about the point of origin?"
Chocobo: "Original travellers referred to conditions at the time as 'slaughterhouse'."
Sakha: "…"
ORN: "This travel unit may answer should helper Sakha demand he communicate with this unit."
Cassie: "This isn't good."
*grips Hector a bit tighter now*
ORN: "Things at origin point were being eaten for meat?"
Chocobo: "Original travellers inhabited land, sharing it with other known species, until new species arrived."
Chocobo: "New species - designated Viera - apparently originated from new moon."
Pak: "New spec- KYA"
Pak: "T-the long-ears x.x"
Sakha: "Viera… the enemy…"
Chocobo: "Viera population grew exponentially, usurping breeding potential of other races through genetics."
ORN: "Please describe Enemy Viera"
Chocobo: "Viera eventually dominated land, enslaved other races - except for mithra."
ORN: "No predators to control viera population ?"
Sakha: "… long ears… and breed like… rabbits."
[OOC] ORN: dude, he‘s saying the bred like rabbits. thus outbreeding everything around them. unchecked species.
[OOC] Hector: I thought he meant the bunnygirls were evil.
[OOC] Sakha: They are evil, according to mithra
[OOC] ORN: as far as any other species would be concerned in this case, yes, yes they are. please! think of the catgirls!
Hector: "Rabbits? Huh. So there’s…cat-people, like mithra. And the viera are rabbit-people."
Chocobo: "Definite cause for hostilities unknown. Possible causes include mithra protection of males, and visual similarities causing racial prejudice."
[OOC] Sakha: Think of the catBOYS
Hector thinks of a moment for what a bunnygirl would look like. "…whoa."
Pak: "…Wait…"
Hector: "Well, it'd be a welcome sight…"
Cassie: "So, they just outbred the Mithra? That is sad."
Chocobo: "Outcome of hostilities known. Mithra population before evacuation numbering several million."
Cassie looks at Hector, and sighs
ORN: "Viera are hostile to species for protecting their males? Was this an attempt to free Mithra males?"
Pak: "Why would Mithra Protection of Males cause…?"
Pak thinks.
Chocobo: "Mithra population post-evacuation previously stated."
Pak: "I guess we'll find out when we get there."
Hector holds his chin sagely. "I think we should meet this viera and get as much information about them as possible when we arrive."
Sakha: "Maybe they don't have many males either…?"
Chocobo: "Viera species entirely female."
Cassie looks at Hector and shakes her head
ORN: "If males are a large percentage of the population and are kept from battling, this would significantly reduce the fighting force."
Chocobo: "Use males of other species as breeding stock."
Hector: "All…female…rabbit-girls?"
Pak: "…Ohhh…"
Pak: "OHHH."
Pak: "I see!"
[OOC] Sakha: And hear hector cheer
Chocobo: "Mithra reluctance to allow use of their males not appreciated by Viera."
ORN: "… This unit will be required to attract attention of female Viera as a protective measure against the kidnapping and sexual enslavement of helpers Hector and Pak. The creators would wish this."
Cassie just blinks at the news and says "Sex slaves, and the Mithra didn't apprecicate it."
Pak: "…Kyun…"
Pak worries.
Hector: "Whoa! Whoa! Don't you think that being kidnapped would be a good thing? Then I'd get a good look at their headquarters."
Pak: "But, but, Niichan, it's too risky!"
ORN: "Crushed Pelvises."
Hector: "'course, they might not kidnap us on reflex."
Cassie: "Ye, what if they torture you?"
Sakha looks at Hector. "… I hate them already."
Pak: "…Well… wait."
Pak: "That was the state of things 100 years ago."
Pak: "It's possible that they're different now…"
ORN: "Helper cassie is correct. Their mating and breeding methods are not known to this unit. These may be most unpleasant as opposed to observed rituals during hangar downtime"
Cassie: "True, Pak."
Pak: "…"
Pak looks at ORN funny.
Hector: "I'd like to meet them, regardless."
Pak: "Well, it sounds like we will.. in a day or so."
ORN: "Various insects shred and consume their mates"
Sakha: "Less now."
Chocobo: "Warning! This unit has just completed population projections based on previously known data."
Pak: "Yeah."
Cassie: "You don't think that this and Milf could be conected, Ahiru?"
Pak: "O_O"
Ahiru: "They're bunies, not insects."
Pak: "What did you learn, Chocobo?"
Chocobo: "Population estimate exceeds physical capacity of known land area."
Hector chuckles. "Chill out, Sakha. Don't let your racial bias get the best of you."
Ahiru: "And… maybe… that could be the imbalance that I'm supposed to clear up."
Sakha: "If they're all female, they don't have any need for females, do they?"
Pak: "This could be bad…"
Hector: "Of course it's going to be bad. But it's up to us to make it good."
Sakha: "What do you think they'd do to us?"
Cassie: "Not much. But too Pak and Hector, who knows?"
Novacat: //(I just missed a minute here, java died.)

Hector: "Stop worrying about us. Pak's good at escaping situations like these."
Sakha: "Cassie. 'SLAUGHTERHOUSE.'"
Chocobo: "Specifically, capacity for Viera to physically stand upon land area without crushing one another."
Pak blinks.
Hector: "Heh, maybe they moved underground. Rabbits do live in holes, you know."
Cassie: "Yes, I understand that Sakha. Its horrible."
Novacat: "Travel unit: Please recalculate projections using known foodstocks, assuming a similar daily intake to mithra."
Pak: "…"
Pak repeats what ORN said
[OOC] Pak: Nova, change nick
Sakha: "You said they wouldn't do much, they'll probably kill us."
ORN: "Living species require larger living areas for production of foodstuffs and avoidance of "cabinfever" situations which can lead to detrimental warfare."
Ahiru: "Maybe they have food magic like Pak said?"
Cassie: "Sakha, your right. But still, we have to go in there thinking things will be calm. If not, well, it will turn back into the slaughterhouse."
ORN: "regardless. This would still require production facilities. further "slaughter" situations would have ensued. Also remains the matter of lack of suitable mating materials. With no males to aquire, an all-female race may dwindle if its primary source of mating is missing."
Pak: "Hm…"
Pak: "All of this is speculation."
Pak: "We'll see what's really happening when we get there."
Chocobo: "Alert - maintenance projections significantly altered travel time estimate. End of tunnel now approaching."
Hector: "There's too many factors to account for and we don't have enough information at this time."
ORN: "Indeed. I appologise for any errors this may incur."
Explosions can be heard up ahead.
Sakha: "We just need to get on with it, but we should be careful."
Cassie: "roght."
ORN: "identify nature of the explosions"
Pak: "…Wha?!"
Ahiru: "Maybe the bunnies are trying to get into the sealed tunnel?"
Hector: "Oh, bloody hell."
Sakha stops and starts making notes about everything the Chocobo told them.
[OOC] Sakha: I'
ORN: "Helpers Hector and Pak may require claims of being already mate to others when the enemy Viera are encountered to avoid violence.<"
[OOC] Sakha: I'm ready for battle.
Hector: "Hell no."
Ahiru: "I'm not sure if that would help…"
Hector: "HELL no."
ORN kneels on the chocobo‘s back, spear pointed forwards and ready to jump
Ahiru: "I’m not sure if that would help…"
Hector: "HELL no."
Hector: "I'm not faking marriage."
ORN: "marriage is irrelevant to status of mate."
ORN: "however, status of mate may also be irrelevant to status of other mates"
Sakha: "These bunnies kill women that claim men, that definitely isn't going to work."
The tunnel's end does indeed rapidly approach. Your ride skids to a halt as the tunnel narrows, stopping before it is too small for the robot - but still large enough for you.
Pak: "Okay… guess this is our stop."
Cassie: "Last stop, then."
ORN: "This unit will therefore revert to original plan and obtain attention of all enemy females."
The metal lining the tunnel appears to have been banged in considerably.
[OOC] Sakha: One of ORN
[OOC] Sakha: One of ORN's transgormatons should have confuse and charm attach focuses XD
Pak: "ORN, let's… try to stay stealthy for now. >_>"
Pak: "Until we see what's happening."
Hector climbs off the chocobo.
There far end is almost vertical - it's climbable, and an unsteady-looking sheet of metal covers the far end.
[OOC] WC GM: *The far end
Sakha is furiously making notes.
Pak heads towards the tunnel opening… and blinks at the climb.
ORN jumps off quietly.
Cassie gets off the chocobo, and walks behind Hector
The explosions are coming from above.
Hector looks up. //"Huh."
ORN: "attempts to detonate alternate routes into the tunnel?"
Sakha looks up and gets off the chocobo, floating the book and pen and continuing to write magically as she climbs.
Chocobo: "This unit used to be able to egress from this end, and originally entered from this end."
Ahiru climbs normally.
Hector climbs, too, but carefully.
ORN: "Travel unit maintnence was most impressive. This unit thanks you for your assistance."
[OOC] Ahiru: Hector doesn't want to damage his goods before getting bunnyaction
Chocobo: "This unit requested one previous traveller to investigate. Said previous traveller has yet to return."
Ahiru: "Must be Fakir!"
Sakha: "Is Fakir a mithra…? Why did you listen to him…?"
ORN: "This traveller may be known to Helper Ahiru. This unit will attempt to investigate in his stead."
[OOC] Hector: Damn right.
Chocobo: "Said traveller was human - this unit did not listen to human, nor offer transport."
Pak: "Oh, I see."
Pak: "You just asked…"
Pak: "…Ack!"
Chocobo: "But this unit's orders do not preclude requesting aid from non-mithra."
Pak: "But Fakir's a male!"
Pak thinks.
ORN: "Helper Ahiru. If Fakir came through this tunnel it is entirely possible he has been forced into mating multiple Vierra."
Ahiru: "… the bunnies wouldn't hurt him then."
Pak: "Ahiru!"
Pak: "Become a duck and fly up to the top of the tunnel."
ORN: "This occupation may be the cause for his late return."
Cassie: "True."
Pak: "Then we can find out what's going on‘"
Ahiru: "Um… okay…"
[OOC] ORN: as far as ORN`s concerned, Vierra do nothing but have sex and kill things that try to stop them from getting more. at least, that`s what all the info`s been telling him.
Ahiru transforms into a duck and moves ahead to the top of the ladder to see what’s going on.
There is not enough room between the plate and the tunnel to squeeze out. Some muscle will be needed to open it.
[OOC] WC GM: STR check, -20
Ahiru rolled 1d100 and got 6 ( Total: 6 )
[OOC] Hector: hory shid
[OOC] Ahiru: Whee! I critted!
[OOC] WC GM: You needed a 5, I think.
[OOC] ORN: that‘s one strong duck
[OOC] WC GM: Still, since it was a crit…
Ahiru manages to force the plate open just enough to poke her head out - but not enough to fit her body through. Which, as it turns out, is a good thing.
Hector: "…wow."
ORN: //?

Cassie: "She should have stayed human. She could have opened it a bit more."
Ahiru wiggles back down. //"It looks like furry bunny girls are shooting at non-furry bunny girls and the other way around."
Ahiru changes back before saying that.
Pak: "…Furry? Non-Furry?"
Hector: "So, what? We wait for one side to win? That could take a few days for all we know."
ORN: "Furry and non-furry bunny girls ?"
ORN: "What sort of weaponry is being fired?"
Pak: "Maybe they’re half-breeds."
Ahiru: "Umm… they're small pellets that go bang ting."
Hector: "Instead of speculating, let's figure out what we're going to DO."
Cassie: "So rushing in would hurt right now."
Pak: "We can't go out there now, we'll get shot!~"
ORN stares at ahiru
ORN: "what are they fired from?"
Ahiru: "The long wood and metal hunting weapons."
Pak: "…"
Pak giggles helplessly.
Pak: "ORN, Ahiru only knows nature. She doesn't know anything about weapons!"
ORN: "… Understood"
Hector: "…it's called a rifle."
Ahiru: "Hey! Maybe the men could go out and we could be okay because they won't hurt men… I could go as the King too and maybe I'll see Fakir!"
ORN: "Such weapons propel ammunition at high velocities and good range. This unit‘s phase two main weapon has similar range"
Pak: "So… one of us should go out and explore?"
Hector: "If that’s the case, I'll go."
Ahiru: "I will!"
Pak: "W-what?!"
Cassie: "I'll do it…huh?"
Pak grabs Hector's arm. "Niichan, it's too dangerous!"
ORN: "This unit is likely best suited for this."
Sakha: "I think Ahiru is a better choice. If she gets caught she can duch and get away."
ORN gets ready to jump up right into/through the hole
Pak: "…"
Cassie: "ORN! Crap."
Pak: "Oh, wait."
Pak: "ORN would be best."
Hector pulls his arm away from Pak. "This is something that I, as a man, must do."
Pak: "He's not a male, or food."
Pak: "…"
ORN: "All helpers, This unit suggests moving away from possible debris"
Pak: "Well…"
ORN jumps
[OOC] WC GM: Gimme a damage roll vs. that plate.
Ahiru changes into King, just in case.
[OOC] Hector: What is WITH you people? You play with a paranoia reserved for D&D players with assholes like Kazz at the helm.
[OOC] WC GM: 200% - it's Unaware, being a metal plate. ;)
ORN rolled 1d12+55,200% and got 11 ( Total: 132.0 )
The metal plate SHATTERS as ORN plows through it.
[OOC] ORN: hec: hackmaster. where the EASY traps are the ones that only kill you ;p
Even before ORN reaches the apex of his jump, the battle in progress trails off.
[OOC] Ahiru: It's unaware being an OLD metal plate
[OOC] Pak: Or, you know.
[OOC] Hector: Armor -10
[OOC] Pak: You forget something.
A rubble-strewn battlefield lies above.
[OOC] WC GM: Hmm?
[OOC] Pak: JUMP does 200% NORMALLY.
ORN nods
Hector climbs up after Orn.
Pak climbs up after Hector.
Cassie follows
ORN looks around, weapon readied
Two sides are crouched behind embankments.
Ahiru climbs up too as the dashing King
Pak: "Huh…?"
They stare at ORN, not entirely comprehending.
Sakha shakes her head and stays out of sight a moment longer finishing her notes.
[OOC] Hector: So, that brings up a question: If Ahiru, in king-mode, gets some, is the genetic material that of Ahiru or of the King?
[OOC] ORN: heh. quacking bunnygirls?
On one side are furry - mostly white-furred - Viera. On the other are tatooed Viera.
Hector looks at the Viera on one side, then on the other.
Pak: "Tatoos?"
ORN stares, sparkling in the light all heroically and stuff
Hector then gets a nosebleed.
Pak looks over at them, trying to see if they're Mithra-like.
Hector gets up. "I'm okay. I'm okay."
Cassie: "Right, Hector."
Eventually, one of the Viera speaks up. "H…hey! You, with the harem." She points to Pak.
[OOC] Pak: The Tatoos, I mean.
Pak: "…Harem…?"
Viera: "Are you a fluffist or a patcher?"
Hector chuckles.
Pak: "I'm neither."
ORN: "What are fluffists and patchers?"
Ahiru: "That's a boy…"
Pak: "I'm a MITHRA!"
Viera: "…"
Ahiru takes Cassie. "This is a girl."
Pak: "And that's a human, and that's a robot. And another human."
Pak: "And Ahiru."
Viera2: "…deranged."
ORN: "This unit requests information on the current situation to avoid etiquette errors"
Ahiru: "King Ahiru."
Viera3: "Yeah. See those ears? I don't know what they've done to that poor girl, but she must've suffered horribly."
Viera1: "And yet still she has a harem."
Ahiru tries to emit King's sense of style and charm.
Hector scratches the back of his head.
Hector: "I hate to break it to ya, but I don't belong to anyone."
ORN: "Helper cassie is considered most attractive to these males."
ORN: "This unit still requests information regarding what a patcher and fluffist entails."
Hector backhands Orn.
Cassie blinks and shakes her head
Sakha makes notes of whats going on as they AREN'T being slaughtered.
Hector: "Cassie's boring! I like exotic girls! Like these viera!"
ORN: "Then again…"
Viera2: "He's offering himself? Freely?"
Cassie backhands Hector and says "Boring? Hmmph!"
Pak: "…"
Hector ducks.
Hector grins.
Pak: "What's wrong with you?!"
Pak pouts.
Hector: "I'm not offering myself to anyone. But feel free to throw yourself at my feet."
Sakha irks, and comes up. "Hey, Are you crazy!?"
Pak: "Well… maybe you don't believe us 'cause it's been 100 years."
Pak: "But we're not Viera."
Pak: "Not even a little."
ORN: "We have come in search of "
[OOC] ORN: heh
Ahiru: "Hey, we came to learn about these people right? So we should go with them, and maybe they know Fakir."
The viera mutter among themselves, unsure what to make of this.
Cassie sighs and says "Maybe we should." She then GLARES at Hector
Sakha climbs and takes a stand with everyone and looks at Cassie. "You're such a pushover."
They shut up the instant Sakha emerges.
Pak blinks.
Pak looks at Sakha.
Cassie urks at the quote from Sakha and just stares
Viera: "…that…*is*…"
Sakha swishes tail irritably.
[OOC] ORN: uh oh
Both sides scream and run away.
Pak: "…"
Sakha blinks.
Pak: "…"
Pak: "COOL!"
Hector: "…well, crap."
Pak hugs Sakha.
Pak: "That was awesome!"
ORN: "It appears they are most afraid of you."
Cassie: "Good job, Sakha. Now we can go in."
[OOC] Sakha: OMG I'm laughing so hard
[OOC] Sakha: Were they actually speaking Common?
[OOC] ORN: Say the bunnygirls to the party: "oh noes! its a catgirl! run away!"
[OOC] WC GM: Their language was close enough to Common.
[OOC] Sakha: Aww and I took the trouble of learning it too…
[OOC] Sakha: ;-;
[OOC] Sakha: Should I redistribute those lore points if it's pointless?
[OOC] WC GM: Don't worry, it'll come in handy later. ;)
Cassie looks around and says "What are we waiting for? Get behind Sakha, and move in?"
Pak: "Well…"
Pak looks about.
Hector: "Bloody hell."
Sakha: "Well it seems we're not the only ones that had fears about the other…"
ORN: "These were afraid but it is possible they would have hardier fighters around."
Ahiru turns back into Ahiru.
Pak: "…Let's see if they dropped any items or weapons when they ran!"
Hector: "I suppose we should find a situation where we can speak to them in a civilized manner."
Pak zips over to the embankment and loots!
ORN: "There is also a matter of these warring factions."
ORN: "One may prove more righteous than the other."
Hector: "Or maybe they're both wrong."
ORN: "Then again, it may be war over the colors of various hats."
Sakha: "I suppose. And here I thought that we'd have trouble with them killing us… but now we have trouble because I scare the hell out of them."
Cassie: "No ORn."
Hector: "Let's worry about one thing at a time."
ORN stares
Pak: "Maybe you should put your hood up?"
ORN: "Helper Cassie does not believe in the existance of colored hats ?"
Hector: "If they're scared of Sakha, they might refuse to rest of us shelter and such."
Cassie: "I do, but a war over colored hats?"
[OOC] WC GM: Pak: Search, if you're checking for items.
ORN: "It is entirely possible. Their earlier assaults appeared to be sub-racial in nature. The furred fluffists and tatooed non-fluffists."
Hector: "Therefore, the most prudent course of action would be to somehow disguise that Sakha is a mithra."
Sakha sighs and does so. She also tucks her tail around her.
Sakha: "There, no mithra."
Cassie: "Okay, ORN. I see what you mean."
[OOC] Pak: Search?!
Hector: "So let's get going. This place isn't going to explore itself."
[OOC] Pak: What the heck is search
[OOC] Sakha: Search is only animal companions :P
[OOC] Sakha: Maybe… awareness? Tracking? Poach?
[OOC] Hector: Pak is not my animal companion.
[OOC] Sakha: Well he is in a sense
[OOC] ORN: ^^;
Ahiru joins Pak in looking around.
[OOC] WC GM: …right. Awareness/Tracking/Poach.
[OOC] Ahiru: Ahiru is morso :P
Pak rolled 1d100 and got 49 ( Total: 49 )
[OOC] ORN: what the. this thing has smilies or something.
Cassie joins in the searching
[OOC] WC GM: Sorry, forgot it wasn't here.
[OOC] Pak: Pass by 17 on Awareness
Cassie rolled 1d100 and got 77 ( Total: 77 )
ORN will check the other embankment.
Ahiru rolled 1d100 and got 8 ( Total: 8 )
ORN: //(awareness)

ORN rolled 1d100 and got 54 ( Total: 54 )
Cassie looks around, and feels like there is nothing around for her
ORN: (succeed by 2. Ahiru‘s rolling crits today!)
[OOC] Ahiru: CRIT! pass by 32 Awareness and 56 Tracking
Pak and ORN each find a Valiant. Ahiru finds a Silver Rifle.
Pak blinks at the Valiant.
Pak: "What is this thing?"
ORN takes it and stares…
Ahiru: "It’s an all shiny hunting weapon…"
ORN: "High powered hunting rifle. This is more likely used against others."
Pak: "Hmm."
Pak: "I can't use guns, so maybe we could sell it."
Hector goes over to what Ahiru has. //"Well, I'll be. That's a pretty nice piece of equipment."
[OOC] WC GM: …actually, forgot your Avail. Make that Silver Rifle for Pak and ORN, and Ulysses for Ahiru.
Hector: "I'd like that, if you please."
Ahiru: "Umm… okay… but give me a treat when we get to town?"
Hector: "Uh…sure. Whatever you want."
Ahiru smiles and hands over the gun
A fast and heavy group of footfalls approach.
Pak looks around. "Where is the nearest town-eH?"
Hector puts the gun in his pack.
Pak looks around…
ORN brings up spear
A highly armed group of Viera - mixed furred and non-furred - arrive, weapons ready.
Viera: "Where's the mithra?"
ORN: //(is sakha sufficiently disguised ?)

Pak: "She ran off."
Pak has a hat on.
[OOC] WC GM: They're not immediately pointing all their weapons at Sakha. Guess. ;)
Hector: "Nowhere around here, far as I can tell."
ORN: "The one with a tail chased in that direction (points randomly not where they came from). There was talk of "edible viera child""
Ahiru: "We're new here, can you tell us what this is about?"
[OOC] Hector: PS: I'm going to learn rifles.
ORN: "This unit‘s group requires some directions due to long distance travel."
[OOC] Pak: Can you use them as a White Pirate?
Viera: "Huh. Must’ve been after some food. Come on, let's get you to safety."
ORN: "This is appreciated."
ORN sparkles
Sakha: "…"
The lead Viera points with her rifle, back the way they came.
Pak: "We're travelers from far away, so we don't really know what's happening."
[OOC] Hector: No. Fuckballs.
Viera: "Suuure you are."
Hector sighs.
Ahiru: "And we're looking for someone that came by this way… He's tall, has dark hair and likes to wear blue."
Viera: "Everyone knows of the war between the fluffists and the patchers."
ORN nod."indeed. This is appreciated. Are there any towns or shops from this direction?"
Ahiru: "Well we don't."
ORN: "This unit does not."
Viera: "We're trying to stay out of it. Haven't had much luck."
Hector hushes Ahiru and the rest of the group.
Pak: "Oh, I see…"
ORN: "Is this in reference to the various physical differences?"
Ahiru looks at Hector.
ORN: "This unit would like to know the reasons for such combat so as to avoid diplomatic errors"
Hector steps forward. //"Hey. We'd appreciate any help you could give. If it's just an escort to town."
The Viera simply stares at ORN.
Hector glares at Orn. "Shut UP!"
ORN stops, confused
Ahiru: "… Cats are scary…"
Ahiru comments and stays close to ORN.
Hector stomps over to Orn and gets up to his face and hisses. "This is a delicate situation and I'd appreciate it if you left your constant damned questions to yourself for now."
Sakha: "…"
Viera: "Sure. We can put you up for the night, if you can give us a couple."
She looks close at Hector. "Shouldn't be a problem for you - you don't seem used that much."
Hector turns back around.
Hector: "Oh, trust me. With this bunch, I'm damn near fresh."
Cassie shakes her head and whispers "Ass."
[OOC] ORN: what, don‘t you want to.. er… mediate very important diplomatic talks between the two groups, to bring them together for some… peace and harmony?
[OOC] Hector: You all talk too damn much.
The Viera raises her eyebrow. "You mean you don’t…"
Ahiru looks curious, hides behind ORN, changes into King and turns back, curious.
Pak: "…?"
Pak steps forward. "Eh?"
Hector chuckles.
Viera: "…huh. So you just take all your food from your enemies? You *must* be tough, if you can pull that off consistently."
Pak thinks. That actually was what they did back in Shaft…
Pak: "Actually, that's true."
Hector: "Yeah. A master of banditry, I was, 'till I got pulled into something a little bigger."
Ahiru: "We've come a long way, so we have to be tough for people that travel a lot, we're not affiliated with any group either."
Viera: "'Banditry' Well…I guess you could call it that."
Pak: "…"
Hector chuckles. "Oh, man. We're on two different levels here, aren't we?"
Pak whispers to the cloaked Sakha. "I have no clue what's going on."
Hector: "You don't mean food in a literal sense, do you?"
He laughs.
flat look* "Of course we do."
[OOC] WC GM: -we +I
Pak: "…"
Hector: "Oh, geez."
Pak: "Ooh."
Sakha: "… probably there are too many of them, too little area, so all that's left is to fight each other for men and food."
Hector: "Oh, geez."
Hector: "Oh! OH!"
Pak: "…Well…"
The Viera nods. "And with the men, come the food."
Pak: "Men make food?"
ORN: "Are the men capable farmers?"
Hector: "We had to, just like you do. Only our excuse was a lack of suitable farmland."
Viera: "Milf lets us turn their seed into food."
Pak: "…"
Hector: "…whoa."
[OOC] ORN: … …. …. If I wasn‘t in a public place right now I`d be screaming with laughter…….
Cassie: "erm, all rigth then."
[OOC] WC GM: Wait for it. ;)
Pak: "So… you plant their… s…seeds…?"
Pak is about 500% paler than he was a second ago.
Hector: "Man. I’ve heard about women swallowing, but that's ridiculous."
Viera: "Anyway. We're hungry, and our stock is tired. So, the sooner you can give us a couple - three or four, if you can spare it - the better."
Pak: "…"
Pak covers his ears and looks like he's going to scream.
Cassie looks sicken all of a sudeen
Sakha: "That's not what she means. I have heard that it can be very nutritious from some sources."
Sakha is trying to keep her cool, but hearing this situation makes her feel sorry for them.
ORN looks quite curious
[OOC] WC GM: Pak and Cassie get it.
[OOC] WC GM: I think.
[OOC] Cassie: i do..I DO
[OOC] Pak: Not quite.
Hector chcukles.
[OOC] Sakha: I get it
ORN: "This method of producing foodstuffs is definitely most intriguing. I was not aware of the reasons for such acts when performed."
[OOC] Pak: I don't know HOW the seeds become food.
Cassie: "Orn!!!"
[OOC] Hector: Proteins. XD
Ahiru: "I get to make food…? That might be interesting…"
ORN: "I apologise. I failed to remember creator instructions on never speaking of such acts to any wives."
Pak looks over at Ahiru slowly.
Pak: "…I-i'm not sure you want to…"
Ahiru is completely clueless about sex, and is currently King.
Pak: "…"
Hector thinks for a minute.
[OOC] Ahiru: This'll be an interesting experience for the duck.
[OOC] ORN: for duck as king ya mean
Pak: "…So… the seeds… they… how do they become food? Do you plant them in the ground?"
Pak: "Or…"
blurts it out* "Guys, they want to eat the babies!" >_<
The Viera nods. "We plant them in our wombs."
Cassie runs behind a hill and throws up
Pak freaks out and runs screaming towards the tunnel. "AAAAAAAH!!!!"
Hector quirks an eyebrow up.
Sakha: "…"
ORN: //(er, that‘s definitely an interesting metabolic boost from milf there considering the high energy/nutritional intake required to bring a kid to term. Bloody efficient bunnies.)

[OOC] WC GM: Aye. The boost is all Milf.
ORN: "And this provides nourishment, correct ?"
[OOC] Hector: So, if baby fluid is nutrients for women, are men expected to take it up the ass to eat?
[OOC] Pak: No, no.
[OOC] ORN: likely just eating the girls (out) is enough
[OOC] Hector: Because I am not letting anyone stick it in my pooper.
[OOC] Pak: They have an extremely high birthrate.
Sakha: "… if you think about it, it makes perfect sense for them… morbid, but perfect sense."
[OOC] Pak: And then they eat their children.
[OOC] Pak: Most of the time.
Viera: "Correct. Milf lets us gestate the babies quickly, and grow them quickly. It doesn’t make for a very stable person - but as food, it suffices."
Cassie: "Perfect…*pukes*..sense?"
Hector: "Huh."
Pak comes back slowly…
ORN: "…"
Pak: "…So… how often do you keep the kid?"
Hector: "Is there any other source of food?"
Sakha is only 14, she's young and doesn't know much about the finer things in life.
Viera: "A few, but we reserve those for stock. They are not as blessed by Milf as we are."
Ahiru is a duck and just doesn't get it, then thinks about eggs being eaten and cries.
ORN: "If Travel Unit‘s estimations were correct it is unlikely the available land is capable of sustaining to that level, which would make this the `regular` way to eat."
Pak: "Stock?"
The Viera looks at Pak. //"Only when we have enough food to bring up another child."
Pak: "I see."
ORN picks up Ahiru and puts her on his shoulder.
Hector scratches the back of his head. "We’ve got our work cut out for us here, huh. Man, Grav doesn't make anything easy, does he?"
The Viera pats Hector on the hip and smiles. "Stock."
ORN: "Helpers crying is unacceptable. Please be happy."
Cassie wipes her mouth and says "Gross."
Pak: "…"
Pak: "OHhh…"
Pak: "…"
Sakha: "At least they don't expect the stock to eat what they do."
Pak looks down at himself.
Pak: "It's a man's duty to help people."
Ahiru: "Eating eggs would be horrible…"
Pak: "Isn't that right, Niichan…?"
Hector turns to Pak. "Exactly!"
Cassie looks at Pak and says "What?"
Pak: "…"
Pak: "Well, then, as the only 'Man' here…"
Pak grabs Hector's hand.
Hector: "Wa!"
Hector: "You're sixteen. You can do this, too."
Pak: "…"
Pak: "N…no I can't. >_>;"
Viera: "…what are you talking about? She's a girl."
Viera: "All Viera are girls."
Hector facepalms.
Sakha laughs out loud.
Pak: "…"
Hector: "You know what? Nevermind."
Cassie grabs Pak from behind and says "Yeah, Hector, she can't do it."
Pak: "…"
Hector looks at Ahiru-King. "Are you in?"
Pak thinks.
Pak: "But… Can I ask one more question?"
Viera: "We'll be back with your stock in a bit. We'll gestate on the way to town, so dinner should be ready by the time we're back."
Pak: "Why are Mithra so scary?"
Ahiru: "Umm… well… I want to know what happened to Fakir and he probably had to help them to… right?"
Viera: "…please don't mention the M-word just now."
Pak: "I mean… I saw it, and how all the soldiers ran away."
Pak: "…Right, sorry."
Pak: "But what do the M-word do exactly? I've never heard the details."
Viera: "Not when we're about to…well…it spoils the food."
Viera: "We can talk about that later, if you really want to know."
Cassie looks and shakes her head saying"What your doing spoils anything."
Pak: "I'm fine with that."
Sakha: "We've already eaten today, so we'll be fine. Right girls?"
Pak: "Right, Sis!"
The Viera grabs Hector and walks a short distance away with her posse.
Pak: "Wait! Don't you want him?"
Hector: "I assume so, Ah-"
Pak points to Ahiru.
Pak: "Or is he too old?"
[OOC] Pak: I like that noone even asks about ORN. :D
ORN: //(maybe the burger king in an elvis suit is too unattractive to them. they don‘t want bad food ;p)

[OOC] Cassie: Yeah,
[OOC] ORN: I don`t like that! I`m the pretty one here! ;p
Viera: "We only need two, and this one can provide. But if you’re worried about tiring your stock - sure."
Pak: "…"
Pak looks at Ahiru.
She makes a 'come hither' gesture to Ahiru-King.
Ahiru: "Um… okay…"
Ahiru follows.
[OOC] WC GM: ORN, while attractive, can't sire offspring.
Pak: "Ahiru!"
Pak: "…Um…"
Ahiru looks back.
Pak: "Just, don't change!"
[OOC] ORN: well, I can sculpt, I‘m sure. ;p
Pak: "That would be… awkward."
[OOC] Cassie: oy.
[OOC] Ahiru: lol
Ahiru: "They want a man so why would I change?"
Pak: "Well… it’s fairly taxing."
Hector: "Just…be quiet and come with them, alright!"
ORN: (once the viera group‘s out of hearing range, quietly)"If you are to be disguised as Viera, this may require a proper explanation as to your lack of such ability or tastes."
Pak: "Just keep focused and you’ll be okay!"
Pak looks to ORN
Pak: "…Um…"
Pak: "We're… we were badly hurt in an explosion."
The Viera take Hector and Ahiru out of sight.
Sakha: "We still have the food from the palace."
Cassie: "Well, Pak, be glad for now. I bet us girls are going to have our day."
[OOC] WC GM: Do Hector and Ahiru want this RPed, or just skip? ;)
Pak: "I'm just worried what will happen if they discover me."
ORN: "An "unblessed region" may not be sufficient, there are likely temples or area-effects, unless Milf has affected the race makeup directly"
Sakha: "It sounds like they make babies in an hour."
ORN: (oh we want this RP‘d)
[OOC] Pak: It’s their choice. :3
[OOC] Pak: One could say yes, and one could say no.
Cassie: "Don't worry Pak."// *hugs him* "I'm sure your a good disgusier, that you won't be found."
[OOC] Ahiru: I think ir would be educational for Ahiru to RP it
[OOC] ORN: well maybe not hector‘s but DEFINITELY ahiru
[OOC] Hector: RPing sex makes me uncomfortable.
[OOC] Ahiru: Hector’s encounter would be very straightforward
[OOC] WC GM: Alright. I'll RP w/Ahiru after the main session - which is almost over.
[OOC] Ahiru: Ahiru, not so much
[OOC] Hector: For all my talk, I'd like to not risk arousal typing something out that will never happen to me.
The proceedings are quick and businesslike, taking but half an hour.
[OOC] ORN: heh.
[OOC] Ahiru: We should take it to another channel and anyone that wants to watch can :P
[OOC] Hector: I'm a sociopath, I look like a potsmoker with down's syndrome, and I sound like a frog who's talking through a voice box. I'm going to die alone.
[OOC] ORN: not sure how much longer I can stay on past 5 so someone has to promise to copypaste and mail it to me!
[OOC] ORN: moc.liamtoh|d45_xineohp#moc.liamtoh|d45_xineohp
Once they are done, the Viera lead you back to "town".
[OOC] Hector: Can we wrap now? My legs are starting to hurt, my head is KILLING ME, and my friend's supposed to be here in a few minutes.
Pak looks at Hector. "How… >_> Was it?"
[OOC] WC GM: Wrapping up. ;)
Sakha: "I mean really… that's how fast they gestate and make babies? It's disgusting but its reliable. And we can easily say we've already eaten every time."
Hector: "Well, at least I know it works after all the disuse since this little adventure's started."
Said town is about what you'd expect, from a group that's hiding out from two warring factions.
Hector: "Still, not even a 'thank you'."
A hole in the wall for an entrance, into a fortified warehouse.
Cassie looks at Hector and mutters "Pig." under her breathe
Ramshackle quarters, commons with barely-functional plumbing…
Pak crawls into the hole.
quietly to sakha* "you‘ll need to eat eventually"
ORN: //(well why would they thank you when they`re making the food ;p)

Sakha: "We have our supplies from the palace, Ahiru only eats veggies so if they giver her as a guy meat she can bring that to us."
Cassie follows in and looks around
…and off to the side is what can only be the combination magic circle/maternity ward/kitchen, which is thankfully secluded from view from the areas you pass through.
ORN: (I take it its not painful either, else they`d all starve to death)
Pak sighs. //"This is… strange…"
Pak: "…So…"
Cassie: "Wait, what if a male gets frisky with us girls? Is the same thing going to happen?"
*she looks on in horror*
Pak: "…I don’t think so. >_>"
Pak: "You're a human."
ORN: "This would depend on whether this is a racial trait, localised subrace, or an area-effect by milf on all females in the area."
Viera: "You can sleep in the underground storage. No one's using it."
ORN: "Examining such possibilities may be required."
Pak: "Thanks."
Cassie: "Well, Pak, what if this magic affected us also just now? You never know?"
Pak sighs… his thoughts drift to the Mithra-guard.
Hector thinks.
Cassie looks at ORN and says "You do it first."
Sakha: "Of course, if they want to make us eat I could just take off my hood."
Hector wonders if it's possible to do some kind of forest-foraging every now and then.
Off to the other side is a collection of what can only be described as pens.
Pak: "…"
Pak looks at the rest of the group.
Pak: "You guys go ahead!"
ORN: "I am unlikely capable of such attempts."
Pak: "I wanna check out their… stock."
Sakha: "I'll go with you."
Pak peeks into the pens cautiously.
A despirited collection of elvaan, moogles, and dwarves sits behind bars.
Pak: "Hmm…"
Pak: "…"
Cassie follows Pak
Pak whispers to Sakha.
Pak: "Moogle… x.x"
[OOC] Pak: Yeah. x.x
Cassie: "Gosh…what the heck?"
The Viera leave you alone once inside, off to tend to their own business.
[OOC] Hector: Have they no standards?
[OOC] Sakha: A baby is a baby
[OOC] Pak: Hector, they eat their own fruit of the loins.
Hector sits on the floor and props himself up against a wall.
[OOC] WC GM: Survival is their standard.
Pak: "…"
[OOC] ORN: it would explain the fluffers
Pak looks to see if there's any humans or Mithramales.
ORN: "… … How is it decided who gets to eat the bobble ?"
[OOC] Hector: Anyway, this arrangment is gross and we have to fix it.
[OOC] Pak: Yes.
[OOC] ORN: milf‘s obviously berserk, indeed.
Sakha: "I wonder what the war is about…?"
Cassie: "This is weird. I hate to eat my own…if I had one."
[OOC] ORN: but that`s what we`re here for
There are no humans or mithra to be seen, aside from the party.
Pak: "We’ll ask soon."
ORN: "cassie, their population suggests they do not necessarily always do so."
Pak: "Along with asking about what… M-words do."
Cassie: "Yeah, ORN, I heard. Then it is just theem."
Sakha: "Dwarves from underground, Elves from a world underground beyond the dwarves and moogles from the sky… the humans were just there…"
Hector: "This is some screwed-up crap. I don't agree with it one bit."
Pak: ">_> Hector, you should be careful."
ORN: "Gestation is likely far easier in these conditions than when unassisted by white magic in other regions."
Cassie: "Yeah, Hector."
Sakha: "So obviously there are passages to the dwarven underground here, you think…?"
Pak: "You're human, and they don't have any humans in these pens."
Pak: "So they might… you know, think you're a rare flavor or something. x.x"
[OOC] Sakha: Am I on the right track WC?
[OOC] WC GM: That you are.
Hector: "So they won't want to damage the goods."
Pak: "…Hey, why don't they take food from monsters?"
Pak: "…Er… that came out wrong."
One cage holds females, for a change - all pregnant.
Hector looks to Sakha. "Hm. And those passages could lead to the island we came from, as well as others."
Cassie giggles at Pak
Pak blushes and places his hand on his forehead.
ORN: "Blue slimes may be edible."
ORN: "Are females also considered stock ?"
Pak: "Hm? Females?"
Pak peers to see what race the females in the pens are.
Sakha: "Viera are all female, so they only have Female Viera children…."
Cassie: "They all look pregenant? Maybe normal birthing?"
The three females are the same races as the others - one each elf, moogle, and dwarf.
ORN: "I see. This is to ensure a continuation of the breeding stock."
Pak: "No, she said they didn't do that."
Sakha: "They need to keep getting male children."
Pak: "Ah…"
Pak: "So it is normal birth then."
ORN: "Female children would also be required to ensure a continuation of these. There may be further populations elsewhere."
Hector sighs. "Can we navel-gaze in the morning? I'm tired."
Pak: "Kay."
ORN: "Perhaps subduing Milf will allow for male vierra?"
Pak: "Be sure to wear two pairs of underpants, Hector!"
Sakha: "They probably allow for a replacement female every decade or so."
Cassie sighs and says "Poor girls. How long have you been here, alone like this?"
Pak: "Just in case someone tries to sneak a midnight snack."
Pak heads to the underground storage.
Those in the pens don't even seem to have noticed you.
Cassie looks and follows
Sakha: "They're like cattle."
They wear universal looks of despair - or tiredness.
ORN: "This is unacceptable"
Cassie: "I agree ORN."
ORN: "However, the subjugation of male mithra by female mithra should also be considered similarly deplorable to this."
Sakha: "We could probably solve some of the problem by reducing there population."
Sakha says with a smile.
Pak: "…Similarly, but it's not usually as bad."
Pak: "Except in certain places in Seaburg."
Cassie: "anyways, we'll figure out how to help them later."
A young Viera - prepubescent, juding by her size - comes by. "Oh! Here you are. Mommy and mommy said to show you to the storage place."
Hector: "We could…I dunno. Do these people know how to fish?"
Pak: "Storage? >_> Kay…"
Cassie: "mommy and Mommy?"
Hector: "And maybe we could ask Grav to force more land up from the ocean r'something."
GirlViera: "Are you trying to talk to the stock? Don't bother - we don't teach them how to talk."
Pak: "…"
Pak looks sad.
Cassie: "That is horrible!"
Pak: "Kay…"
Sakha: "There are only frmale Viera and stock, so of course mommy and mommy, really where's your head Cassie, you remember your mommie and mommy right?"
GirlViera: "They're only here for food."
Pak: "…Sakha, they don't think Cassie's a…"
The girl motions you downstairs.
ORN: "shh."
Pak: "K…"
Pak follows.
Hector gets up and halfheartedly goes downstairs.
Sakha: "She lost her ears the poor thing, remember?"
Cassie looks at Pak, and thinks "Say it."
Cassie looks at Sakha and sighs saying "Why me?"
ORN: "as the males are simply stock, it is unlikely they would be considered as the child‘s parents."
Sakha: "Do you want to be in a pen?"
she whispers back.
ORN: //(indeed, you`d be new breeder-breeding stock.)

whispers back* //"Oh, crap, no human. Sakha, sorry."
GirlViera: "I haven’t seen much stock that can talk myself, but I heard they do that some places. You must be from closer to the capital."
Cassie: "Yes, I am."
GirlViera: "So who's winning out there? The fluffists or the patchers?"
Pak: "…"
Sakha: "It's more entertaining when they can talk, don't you think?"
ORN: "This unit does not know. There appeared to be a stalemate in the only fight this unit has witnessed."
Sakha: "We don't know, and don't care really, we don't take sides."
Cassie: "It passes the time, Sakha."
ORN: "This unit is highly uninformed of the causes behind such warfare."
Pak: "We're… well…"
Pak hmms.
ORN: "beyond the capital."
The girl has no fur, and gestures to her untattooed skin. "I'm…well, since I'm not a fluffist, I'd have to be a patcher. But I don't wanna fight and kill. I just wanna live."
Sakha: "It's been going on for so long tho, young people like us just don't know the root of it all do we?"
Pak: "Hey, little girl. Are there monsters anywhere in the world?"
Pak: "Like, things that aren't stock or Viera?"
Hector: "To live, huh."
GirlViera: "Things that aren't stock or Viera? Hmm…well…I've heard some things that live, used as weapons elsewhere."
Sakha: "And that fight and kill fluffers and patchers."
Pak: "We're…"
Pak thinks.
Pak: "…Ah, I know!
GirlViera: "They're used by both sides, so yeah, they can kill both sides."
Pak: "We're from an… island."
Pak: "Most of us, anyway."
GirlViera: "An is…land…oh! You mean those pieces of land that used to be separate from the continent, until we built over them?"
Pak: "Yeah!"
ORN: "Some are far enough that they have not been reached, it seems."
Pak: "That's why we don't know what's going on."
Sakha: "Ours was missed."
She giggles. "You're just being silly. There aren't any more islands out there."
Pak: "…?"
Pak blinks.
ORN: //(they filled it in dude.)

Sakha: "It's farther away than you can see."
ORN: "there are, but at far reaches, many days away from this region."
Pak whispers to Sakha. //"Wasn't… Isn't Refuge a kind of "island"?"
Pak: "Yeah…"
GirlViera: "We've built out for kilometers and kilometers…there haven't been any new islands found since long before I was born."
Pak hmms at that.
Sakha: "Yes… but no one knows how deep the mountains to the north are."
Pak: "True…"
ORN: "It may be too far from your lands."
Pak: "Well, anyway. Our room?"
GirlViera: "Sure we do! The dwarves told us."
Pak: "Oh?"
Pak: "Wait!"
She gestures to an empty room. "Here you are."
ORN: "It is no matter. Just know that we have no wish to take part of this war between furred and furless."
Pak: "oh…"
ORN: "just like you."
Pak shurgs.
Sakha: "I think that's stupid, fighting because some have fur and some don't."
Pak looks at Sakha. "I guess we're like this little girl. We'd probably be Patchers if we had tatoos."
Cassie: "Yeah."
The girl shrugs. "Hey, some of them would rather eat other people than what comes out of them."
Cassie goes next to PRN and whispers "Can I be near you tonight?"
Pak twitches.
Sakha: "Our ears are furred though and we have soft down all over, we have more fur than say, Cassie."
Cassie: "Gross."
[OOC] ORN: you mean ORN ?
[OOC] Cassie: Yeah, sorry
ORN sparkles and nods
GirlViera: "I think it's better to take a life that's never lived, than to snuff out one that's lived a while and might live a while longer."
ORN: "that would make sense."
Pak: "Yup."
GirlViera: "That's how mom says it, anyway."
ORN: "Eating various minerals would be ideal however."
Pak settles into the room.
Sakha: "Yes, a life that hasn't lived doesn't have many people resentinf it's loss."
The room is empty, and slightly dusty.
Hector sighs. "Yeah. Work cut out for us."
GirlViera: "Well, g'night~!"
ORN: "Rest well."
She walks away.
whispers to ORN* "I don't trust anything. I don't want to wake up in a pen. I know Sakha is lying to keep cover for me, but still. If they find out I'm human, they'll take me."
Sakha: "I'm not lying, that's exactly what they thought when they saw you."
Sakha: "Didn't you hear them?"
ORN: "Any attempts at the enslavement of any of this unit‘s helpers will be met with extreme prejudice."
[OOC] WC GM: Cut when you want.
Cassie: "I know. I know. I wish I had a disguse."
[OOC] WC GM: 1000 XP for RP, BTW.
ORN: "Helper sakha is correct however in their assesment of species. They consider you a wounded furless non-patcher."
Sakha: "For now you’re an earless wonder."
ORN: "that attracts men."
Hector sits down on the floor and leans against the wall.
Cassie nods and says "Sakha, sorry about the misunderstanding. I didn't know you were talking about me."
ORN kneels on the ground
Cassie rests right behind ORN
Sakha: "Hey if we stayed you'd end up being stock with Hector, and I don't think you'd want that."
Hector: "Hey, Orn. Watch the door tonight."
Sakha: "Or he would either/"
Pak: "No, they consider ME a wounded furless etc."
Hector: "And neither would I."
Pak: "Sakha has to be careful, since she looks more like a…"
Pak stops.
Cassie: "Yeah. I don't think so."
Pak: "I didn't get a good look at those tatoos.
Sakha: "M-word."
ORN: "None shall lay a hand on the helpers without the annihilation of this unit preceeding such acts."
Pak: "Sakha, do you think they could be similar to the ones our race wears?"
Sakha: "I wouldn't be surprised."
Sakha: "They may associate patchers with Mith-M-words as well."
Pak: "Hmm."
Pak: "Yes. Hector and Cassie, stay safe. :3 You're a rare species. n.n"
Cassie undoes her armor, and is wearing a cotton shirt underneath the armor. She puts it next to ORN and says "Good night everyone."
ORN: "Rest well. This unit shall protect."
Cassie looks at Pak and shakes her head
Hector is already out cold.
[OOC] WC GM: And cut!
Pak: "…Hey, where's Ahiru…?"
Ahiru was just silent pending RP//
