EC Session 2.8

Morning, Boltember 1 Pluday.
As you wake in the freshly devastated ruined city, you think you hear calls - weak, but numerous - of //"Mithra Mithra" from various directions.
The bodies downstairs are still dead - not rotting yet.
Hector sits up.
Nobody's out in the street yet. For the moment, you are safe - for the moment.
Pak kyuuns and shivers. "I feel like someone's walked over my grave…"
Cassandra_Lionheart wakes up and from her post and races towards the door, to get a good look
Pak sits up.
ORN: "Will those following the furries also require eliminating in this way?"
Sakha: "Well, since this place seems to be rather abandoned, lets look for those Furries. We can't really say we're done here until Ahiru's earned that gem."
Hector gets up and brushes himself off.
Cassandra_Lionheart rushes back inside and shakes her head
ORN nods
Hector: "Yeah. But we should keep as low a profile as possible."
ORN: "there also remains the matter of those… amalgamating patches"
Cassandra Lionheart: "Yeah, to both problems."
Pak: "Maybe we could just throw salt on them."
Cassandra_Lionheart looks at Pak and raises an eyebrow
Cassandra Lionheart: "I don't think that would work, Pak."
[OOC] Aerdan: "Anyone got any silver bullets?"~
[OOC] ORN: I have a mithril pike?
[OOC] Hector: Mithril whip here.
[OOC] Aerdan: No, that was supposed to be something I'd say if I were Hector. :p
ORN: "Are they giant snails?"
Pak: "Why not? Their new form looks like a slug…"
[OOC] Pak: I have to go wash the car. brb. Should only take 15 minutes =p
Cassandra Lionheart: "They are not a big slug…that are an amalgamated mass of Viera."
ORN: "This unit would suggest repeating what was done to the first encountered one"
Sakha: "Well they did look pretty raw,so it'd agitate them I'm sure."
Ahiru fingers her pendant.
Cassandra Lionheart: "We need to plan this out, honestly. I mean maybe we could use the big ball of Viera to our advantage."
Hector cracks his knuckles. "In any case, it's just a matter of whose head needs a cracking, right? We just need to get the right head."
ORN: "… it could be thrown at others"
Cassandra Lionheart: "all right, so go back into town, and find te fluffists, and defeat thier leader.
ORN: "These could be combined multiple times perhaps, into a gigantic ball. This gigantic ball could then be rolled over to take care of the fluffists"
Sakha glances at the Viera corpses, sniffs and narrows her eyes then turns away and pointedly ignores them.
Cassandra Lionheart: "Yeah, and we rush in right behind it, and battle the leader!"
[OOC] WC GM: Awareness, all but Sakha.
Cassandra Lionheart rolled 1d100 and got 46 ( Total: 46 )
Ahiru rolled 1d100: 59 [Total: 59 (High), Avg and got 59.00]
Hector rolled 1d100: 61 [Total: 61 (High), Avg and got 61.00]
[OOC] Hector: fail by 5
ORN rolled 1d100 and got 44 ( Total: 44 )
[OOC] Hector: I've never passed an Awareness roll.
[OOC] Aerdan: You did last game, but that was me playing. >.>
[OOC] WC GM: Pak!
[OOC] ORN: passed, just… gotta get stupid page to finish loading so I can say by how much
[OOC] WC GM: Oh, right. AFK.
[OOC] Aerdan: :rolls for Pak.
Those who pass hear Sakha's stomach growl as she sniffs the corpses.
Aerdan rolled 1d100: 34 [Total: 34 (Low), Avg and got 34.00]
[OOC] ORN: by22
ORN: "… Do these viera make you hungry?"
[OOC] Ahiru: Fail by 9 nya
Cassandra Lionheart: "Are you okay, Sahka?"
Sakha: "…No, not at all, it's just having nothing but veggies for a few days."
Sakha: "I'm fine."
Cassandra Lionheart: "Okay."
You're still inside town. Your plan as of the previous night was to head for the dwarven caves, which you know lie quite some distance to the north - unless you have changed your minds.
Hector: "S'pose we've got some dwarves to talk up."
ORN: "we are still being hunted. should we allow the amalgams to 'deal' with fluffers as we make ourselves scarce, or use the chaos this surely has caused to crush the fluffers?"
Cassandra Lionheart: "That sounds like a good idea."
ORN looks over at cassie
ORN: "… which?"
Cassandra Lionheart: "Let the amalgamed Viera take care of the Fluffist, while we go to the dwarf cave."
ORN nods and looks over at rest of group
Cassandra Lionheart: "Agreed?"
Sakha: "But- if they're in this chaos we can look into more… take care of the leaders and then find the vessel of Milf."
ORN: "which is likely to be the fluffist leader."
Ahiru nods. "We can't move on until I've brought Milf down."
Cassandra Lionheart: "Right. This madness will just shorten the job for us hopefully."
ORN: "This unit is favorable to both paths, though would somewhat prefer the elimination of the fluffers to avoid this civil war spilling out"
Hector: "Hm. Well, the sooner we get milf back on track, the better. But we should let the blob do some work for us, simply because it'll give us more energy for the important battles."
Cassandra Lionheart: "So, who wants to go after the Fluffist first?"
Sakha: "I do. I'm taking down these… Viera…"
ORN raises arm
ORN looks like he was gonna raise arm for either though
Ahiru: "We know th Patchist Leader didn't have anything so we have to find the Fluffy one."
Cassandra Lionheart: "Yeah.
Hector: "Y'think the blob has a predetermined target, or it just sort of rolls around at random?"
ORN: "Then it is agreed."
ORN: "We will find out. Either could be put to effective use"
Hector: "If it rolls around at random, we could probably find a way to steer it."
Cassandra Lionheart: "Yeah, we could use it to charge into the fluffist camp."
Hector: "Drop rubble in its path or something."
Cassandra Lionheart: "I guess. But we should hurry."
ORN nods
Hector: "Right. So let's go."
ORN: "This unit suggests we figure out their movement patterns first, and then determine how to use this to steer them towards our enemies."
ORN: "Shall we?"
Cassandra_Lionheart moves to the door and looks around
There are a few of the blobs out in the streets now.
They seem to be vaguely round, having chosen rolling around as their means of propulsion.
ORN will hop onto a rooftop and see if he can watch a few blobs, if they're moving around, as they go across the streets
Cassandra Lionheart: "Okay…I wonder it we can get them to come together somehow."
As you watch, one of them leaps up and pounces on one another, swallowing it and becoming bigger.
Hector: "Huh."
ORN nods to himself and keeps observing
Cassandra Lionheart: "Well, that answers my question."
[OOC] Pak: Back!
They remind those of you who've heard of such things, of amoebas.
Cassandra Lionheart: "Well, as long as we don't get need them, we will be okay. But we have to find a way to control them."
Sakha: "I think it may be beter to eliminate those things before the cover the city as a huge blob…"
ORN looks some more… interested to see how they deal with buildings and barriers especially
Pak: "Hmmm…"
Pak tries casting Poison on the blob.
Sakha: "We'll have to leave SOMETHING for our leafeating friends to take over."
Hector: "That would use up resources we could save for the important battles."
[OOC] WC GM: Pak: roll it.
Hector scratches his chin.
ORN: "if we can simply redirect them, it should do."
Pak rolled 1d100 and got 82 ( Total: 82 )
Cassandra Lionheart: "Well. Do we go towards the Fluffist camp then, and hope they follow?"
Pak rolled 1d8+52 and got 7 ( Total: 59 )
Pak rolled 1d100 and got 34 ( Total: 34 )
[OOC] Pak: MACC = 138.
Hector: "Y'think they'd disappear or dissolve once we got Milf back to normal?"
One of the blobs is poisoned!
Hector: "Huh. Nice shot, little bro."
ORN: "This unit will observe from the rooftops."
Cassandra Lionheart: "Probably dissolve."
Hector: "Wonder if whatever eats that one will be poisoned."
Pak: "I wanna see how they react to Milf's element."
The now purple blob rolls onto another. The pairing is still poisoned.
Hector: "Man, wouldn't that be a trip?"
Hector: "Whoa!"
Cassandra Lionheart: "Huh?"
As if by sheer cosmic coincidence, Hector trips on one of the bodies in the inn.
[OOC] WC GM: :P
Hector gets up.
Hector slaps Pak on the back. "You've just saved us a few hours of work!"
[OOC] ORN: how's their movement? I need more time to figure it out?
Pak: "You think so?"
Pak peeks to see if the poisoned blob keeps gathering other blobs.
Pak: "…Well then, let's go to the Dwarf Caves while this sorts itself out."
Cassandra Lionheart: "Nice job. Lets go."
[OOC] Aerdan: Poison a few more and it'll go faster. :P
Sakha: "I still think we should stay here… Finish what we started… it's… incomplete."
[OOC] WC GM: ORN: …believe it or not, give me a Seduction check, at +40.
[OOC] ORN: heh? alright ^^;
ORN rolled 1d100+40 and got 88 ( Total: 128 )
[OOC] Hector: +40 difficulty?
[OOC] ORN: well, its a blob… it probably has poor tastes
The poisoned blob keeps going, but seems to grow small - shedding dead mass from its poison.
[OOC] WC GM: Other way around.
[OOC] ORN: in that case, 8, and made it by 36
[OOC] WC GM: +40 to skill, so -40 to roll to see if pass.
ORN: //(would've made it by 3 without the 40)

[OOC] WC GM: …that math doesn't seem to add up, but whatev. Pass.
[OOC] Pak: He rolled a 48.
[OOC] ORN: oh, right, yeah. would've failed by 1 ^^:
ORN eventually recognizes the system of attractions between the blobs. Predatory - they're drawn to each other, eating each other to survive.
Hector heads up to where Orn's watching. //"Orn, status report."
They will eventually merge into one. Their only thought is food - including anything organic, like any Viera that did not change.
ORN: "While This unit cannot say how attempts to divert them would function at this point, Their habits are easy to discern."
ORN: "They appear to be attracted to eachother, and are hunting eachother down for additional biomass"
ORN: "In other words, they're all looking to eat eachother and grow bigger."
Hector: "I see. Hm. That gives me an idea."
Sakha: "They may be harder to deal with if they get to be the size of the city."
ORN looks over to sakha
ORN: "The poison shrinks them over time, however."
ORN points at dead corpsebits
It is probably a very good things that the buildings themselves are made of stone, instead of wood.
Hector goes over to Pak. "Poison them like crazy. If they're all poisoned, they'll eventually die out, right?"
Cassandra Lionheart: "Yeah, okay, bad idea. Unless we constantly posion it."
Sakha: "But poison does not last forever, and they can just pick those up again, can't they?"
That said, some of the bigger blobs are starting to attack the buildings - similar to animals cracking bone to get at the marrow.
[OOC] Hector: Poison is technically U. :P
ORN: "Unknown at this point. The dead stuff seems to not have been reaquired so far. We may need it simply to keep them from growing large enough to bowl over the buildings if we are to herd them"
Hector: "How about a trail of dead bodies?"
ORN: "That may work."
Hector: "Get them all into one place, do some poisoning, finish it off while it's weak."
ORN: "a trail of dead bodies leading… to the fluffists?"
Hector: "That's up to you guys. What would you rather do?"
[OOC] Hector: I also have Inks, you know.
ORN: "This requires resolution soon, lest we be faced with a city-sized legion containing milf's essence, and possibly in more concious form than she appears to be in this current state"
[OOC] Pak: LEGION.
Cassandra Lionheart: "Yeah, and we don't need a huge Milf monster."
[OOC] Pak: I heart Legion.
[OOC] Pak: Let's fight Legion!
[OOC] Hector: Well, Hector DOES fight Legion.
[OOC] Hector: and Pak is kind of like his Charlotte.
[OOC] Pak: Yes!
[OOC] ORN: I didn't even realised I'd called it that ^^;;;;
ORN: "So we should end what we have begun."
[OOC] Pak: Well, at this rate it will become Legion, yes?
Hector: "That's why we poison it. To make it weak. A larger body means more poison going through the body."
[OOC] Pak: Giant mass of bodies?
Sakha: "That's what I've been saying."
ORN: "it also NEEDS more poision. let us get going"
Cassandra Lionheart: "Okay, lets do it."
By now, several large blobs are attacking the buildings.
Hector gets his jacket and puts it on dramatically. "Time to salt a few slugs."
The inn you are in is not YET under attack…but it will be soon.
ORN: "Pak, do you require transport for quicker access to the larger blobs?"
ORN: "This unit will help speed up your poison tactic"
Pak: "I don't have unlimited MP, though."
Pak: "I can only poison so many."
Hector gives Pak a Tincture. "Here. Just in case."
Pak pockets it.
ORN: "the more the better."
Pak: "Kay. ORN, take me up and I'll blast the biggest blob."
ORN has an extra he can give you in emergency also.
Cassandra_Lionheart gives Pak all 10 of her Tinctures
Pak: "You guys should head towards the caves just in case. We'll cover you from the roofs."
ORN picks up pak, puts him on his shoulder, kneels down and blasts off towards the biggest blob he can see
[OOC] ORN: roof to roof of course)
[OOC] Pak: We're the tick! :3
[OOC] Hector: dah dwee dah dah dah dwee dow!
Pak aims…
Pak fires~!
Ahiru: "But… Milf… will we just fight a giant blob and hope it's absorbed Milf?"
Pak rolled 1d100 and got 100 ( Total: 100 )
[OOC] Pak: … Er… MACC 138
[OOC] Pak: So it might still work.
Pak misses! There's a Viera who's been fleeing from the blob - she gets hit instead.
[OOC] Aerdan: There are no botches in magic. Thankefully.
[OOC] Hector: Someone fill me in WHY we're going to the caves.
The Viera slows down just enough to get rolled over - the blob is poisoned anyway.
[OOC] Pak: To hide from the blobs.
[OOC] Pak: Blobs are attacking buildings.
[OOC] Sakha: It was suggested as a safe haven from the Viera initially, now the blobs
[OOC] Pak: Me and ORN are mobile enough to outjump them- at least until they hit super-size.
ORN hops on towards the next, pak in tow
[OOC] Hector: Think we're in too deep to run?
Cassandra Lionheart: "Lets move to the cave then. Good luck ORN and Pak."
[OOC] Pak: That's why we're gonna cover you from the streets!
[OOC] WC GM: SPD checks, all but ORN and Pak.
Pak: "ORN, wait! We need to help them get to the cave safely too."
Cassandra Lionheart rolled 1d100 and got 91 ( Total: 91 )
ORN: "?"
Sakha sighs and gets a move on
Hector rolled 1d100: 8 [Total: 8 (Low), Avg and got 8.00]
[OOC] Hector: CRITPASS!
ORN: "Affirmative. where?"
Pak: "Um…"
Pak points to Hector, taking the lead
Sakha rolled 1d100: 46 [Total: 46 (Low), Avg and got 46.00]
[OOC] Sakha: fail by 18
Ahiru rolled 1d100: 40 [Total: 40 (Low), Avg and got 40.00]
[OOC] Ahiru: pass by 3
Cassandra trips and stumbles. Hector helps her on their way, but Sakha's a bit slow too. One of the smaller blobs turns and RACES towards the group!
[OOC] WC GM: One action from everyone before it's upon you.
ORN hopes to intercept… if he can find exactly where they are and get there
Cassandra Lionheart: "Go without me Hector, I'll catch up!"
Hector: "You know I can't do that."
*he returns to Cassie and pulls her out of whatever predicament she's in*
It's not too far back. ORN finds the party just in time for Pak to try one thing.
Pak rolled 1d100 and got 19 ( Total: 19 )
sighs* "We have to fight it now! You should have just ran for it!"
Pak fires poison at it!
ORN crashes in front of the blob, holding up pak like a spear as he fires
Sakha: "I just want to blast them! But noooo leave it to Pak~"
She's sulking
Hector: "I'm not leaving you behind. That's not what family does."
*he smiles and his teeth shine*
Pak hits!
Pak rolled 1d8+52 and got 1 ( Total: 53 )
Pak rolled 1d100 and got 31 ( Total: 31 )
Extra blasting of this one might be desirable - poisoned or not, it's heading your way!
ORN puts down pak and grabs his real weapon
Cassandra Lionheart: "Thanks..but getting to the cave is more important!"
Unless you want to be part of a poisoned mass.
ORN: "RUN!"
ORN gets ready to jump, grabbing pak with other arm
Hector starts to run after Cassie's okay.
ORN bounds off, making sure to remember pak's not a spear this time, back onto the rooftops
Cassandra_Lionheart gets up and runs!
Pak ohs!
Pak casts Sleep on the blob, then.
Pak rolled 1d100 and got 89 ( Total: 89 )
[OOC] WC GM: Pak, wait.
[OOC] Pak: Oh. n.n;_
[OOC] WC GM: Sakha, Ahiru: action?
[OOC] Sakha: Can I use action tonot be unaware first init?
[OOC] WC GM: You're not unaware already. Not in combat yet.
Cassandra Lionheart: "Okay, I have had it!"
[OOC] ORN: ^^' combat starts and THEN you'll get distracted ^^:
[OOC] WC GM: You're trying to avoid combat.
[OOC] Hector: You need to get something that makes you Unaware-proof or something.
Cassandra_Lionheart turns around and begins to chant for an areo spell
[OOC] Hector: Aero or Area?
Sakha is just sulking then - to preoccupied in sulking to notice
[OOC] Cassandra Lionheart: Areo
[OOC] WC GM: Aero
[OOC] WC GM: Not Areo
[OOC] Cassandra Lionheart: oh.
[OOC] WC GM: Ahiru, action?
[OOC] Hector: AREOLA!
Ahiru goes duck and speeds up a bit, also ready to fight if need be.
The mass rolls over the ground - save for ORN and Pak - and immediately starts digesting.
[OOC] WC GM: 10% HP damage to Hector/Cassandra/Ahiru/Sakha. Next action.
[OOC] WC GM: And, yes, this isn't regular combat.
[OOC] WC GM: Trying something slightly different this time.
Pak blahs. "This isn't working…"
Hector keeps running.
Pak: "ORN, try breaking that thing open so they can get out!"
ORN: //…

ORN: "……"
Cassandra Lionheart: "Eww."// *pulls out her sword and stabs at it!*
ORN: "are you capable of ice spells?"
[OOC] WC GM: Missed that Hector ran. K, no damage to Hector.
Hector: "Dammit, just RUN!"
ORN grabs pack by the collar, kneels down and JUMPS
[OOC] Ahiru: Ahiru changed and kept moving but vwas ready to fight
Ahiru: //))

ORN would appreciate something a little more substantial than EnIce if you can, pak, for our landing ^_~
Pak: "No, that's sister."
Pak: "I have Fire."
ORN: "Then get this pike burning red"
Pak Enfires ORN?
[OOC] Hector: THIS PIKE OF MINE IS BURNING RED! TAKE THIS, MY ANGER, MY HATRED, AND ALL OF MY PAIN!
[OOC] ORN: shhhh ;p
[OOC] Hector: SHIIIIIIIIIIINIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIING SPEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEAR!"
[OOC] ORN: although that is pretty much what came to mind when he said "I have fire"
[OOC] Hector: Shining Finger is funny, because basically, it's just poking the enemy in the eyes with your fingers, but they're on FIRE.
ORN will be crashing into the blob in hopes of splitting it with big fiery spear next action.
[OOC] Amatsu: Watching this campaign is always entertaining.
[OOC] Pak: Do I need to make a roll to IM Enfire?
[OOC] ORN: and fuckit, if the twisted laws of RPG physics'll let me do it, I'm using Enice on the tip of the damn thing
[OOC] WC GM: No roll for IM.
[OOC] ORN: Meteor Antipod?
[OOC] WC GM: And, sure - Enfire + Enice GO!
ORN falls out of the sky, pak in one hand and flaming blue-tipped spear in the other
ORN crashes into the center of the blob, releasing massive steam explosion and hopefully not searing poor pak in doing so
[OOC] WC GM: What are those on the ground doing while ORN does this?
[OOC] WC GM: The actions may interact.
[OOC] Pak: Didn't they get engulfed?
[OOC] Pak: Or at least rolled over?
[OOC] WC GM: Hector didn't. And even those who did, can still act from inside.
[OOC] ORN: sounded like both… … hope none of them are dead center of the thing
[OOC] Cassandra Lionheart: Trying to move out, but is engulfed in blob I think
[OOC] Pak: You made Hector take HP damage though.
[OOC] ORN: he rectified that
Sakha glares, and waiting for her brother and his ride to clear from the Monster, she summons a sheet of Water between to buildings and freezes it to make a wall to bar the blob.
[OOC] Sakha: If we're doing IMs
[OOC] WC GM: Yeah - IMs are the point.
[OOC] Sakha: Oh we're INSIDE?
[OOC] WC GM: Though - you're inside the blob. Not sure what the point of the wall is…?
[OOC] WC GM: Yeah. Sakha and Cass are inside - as did Ahiru; changing slowed her enough.
Ahiru transforms again then back to human and on bigger to King.
Sakha then stops the squeezing mass of flesh around HER and encases herself in a hollow block of Ice
Cassandra_Lionheart tried to shred apart the blob with aero
[OOC] WC GM: Roll damage for each. ORN also roll damage - 150%.
[OOC] WC GM: Hector is still running?
Cassandra Lionheart rolled 1d8+32 and got 1 ( Total: 33 )
ORN rolled 6d12+78,150% and got 10, 2, 12, 4, 6, 5 ( Total: 175.5 )
[OOC] ORN: er, wait, do I throw in the jump bonus too?
[OOC] WC GM: Yes.
Pak rolled 1d8+52 and got 4 ( Total: 56 )
[OOC] ORN: would come out to 292.5 then
[OOC] Pak: Damage for Fire.
[OOC] WC GM: Pak: Fire subsumed in ORN's bonus.
[OOC] Pak: K.
[OOC] ORN: no worries pak, you turned that thing into a 250% steam bomb
The blob shudders a bit, then tears open!
Hector turns around and skids to a halt backwards, lowering his body.
Blob pieces are thrown hither and yon - what might have been a leg here, a chest there…
WC GM rolled 1d100: 47 [Total: 47 (Low), Avg and got 47.00]
An ex-groin sails over Hector's head, narrowly missing him.
ORN slowly stands from his landing position, pak thrown over one shoulder and pike firmly planted in the ground
Sakha tumbles out stylishly in a gemstone of ice she dispels upon the ceasation of motion.
ORN rips the spear out, clearing the rest of the steam away
Cassandra_Lionheart coughs and says //"Thanks guys."
[OOC] Hector: Can Sakha make ice crytals that bounce off of walls and freeze enemies as jumping platforms? :P
ORN nods
[OOC] Sakha: Maybeafter I get Float
[OOC] WC GM: Yeah - her magic isn't that powerful yet. Eventually, though.
Ahiru tumbles out a big older man an complains wordlessly
[OOC] Hector: You're going to have Valkyrie Profile-styled puzzles someday?
ORN: "Are you still able to get to the caves?"
Pak climbs up on ORN's back again.
Sakha seethes. "No. We're taking care ofthis Follow me I'llfind the biggest blob and take it down!"
Cassandra_Lionheart gets up and dusts herself off and walks wordlessly towards the caves, following anbody in front of her
ORN: "This was most dangerous…"
The biggest blob is back to the south - away from the caves.
[OOC] WC GM: Which way do y'all go?
ORN will return with pack onto the rooftops and continue the work
Sakha tromps off South.
Pak: "…Maybe we should listen to Sis, she looks… really really mad."
Cassandra_Lionheart sighs and shakes her ead and follows Sakha
Hector: "…yeah."
Hector: "Hell hath no fury like a woman scored by Viera."
ORN: "… Are you sure of this Sakha? This unit cannot really carry two people all that well"
Sakha glares at Hector and a shard of ive scrapes his cheek.
Hector: "…yeah."
ice
Pak: "…Yeeeah… let's go do this."
Sakha continues walking.
ORN: "…"
Cassandra Lionheart: "We are in big trouble."
ORN: "*silently, to pak* this unit would suggest we keep ahead of them and poison these blobs beforehand as to aid Sakha"
Ahiru goes duck again and quacks with a flap to catch up.
Pak: "Yes, let's do so. n.n;"
Pak clings to ORN.
ORN jumps ahead, keeping an eye out for blobs
With a CRACK-THOOM, a blob easily as tall as any of the buildings explodes from what might have been a palace three blocks ahead.
Cassandra Lionheart: "Oh my word…"
ORN: "… how much poison can you instill in this?"
Pak: //'…Let'

Pak: "Let's find out!"
Pak aims…
ORN gets ready to jump away as soon as pak's fired

[OOC] WC GM: 10% max HP per round.

ORN: "That was a relatively large one… This unit hopes they will not double further in size"
Hector brushes body parts off of him.
Cassandra_Lionheart breathes a sigh of relief and says //"Lets hurry then."
Pak: "Was that the biggest one? Where do we go now?
Hector: "Anyone seriously injured?"
Sakha glares at him then heals herself.
A shadow looms over the party briefly as another, larger blob rolls by in the next street over. Apparently, the blobs got larger just in the time that combat took.
Sakha rolled 1d8+64: 3 [Total: 67.0 (Low), Avg and got 3.00]
Hector drinks a potion.
Cassandra Lionheart: "Um, we got a bigger one on the lose."
Hector: "Little bro, how're ya doing?"

Pak: "Okay…"
Pak: "But… x.x"
Pak: "There's more blobs."
Pak: "What do we do?"
Hector: "Hell."
ORN: "Bigger blobs."
ORN: "Bigger blobs demand bigger weapons."
Sakha: "Do YOU want people to meet thatsame fate?"
Hector: "I don't think we have any bigger weapons."
ORN: //… … … If all the viera are dead, wouldn't the shops…..

ORN: (er, that had quotes around it)
Hector: "…yeah. We could steal a load of elemental bombs."
Hector: "Then you could jump up and drop 'em all at once!"
Cassandra Lionheart: "Be free? Yeah."
Pak: "…Ooh."
Pak: "…So where's a shop then?"
[OOC] Sakha: Sakha's a pessimist so I have to say this but I want free stuff…
ORN: "Stealing is wrong. However, This unit doubts that the dead care."
Sakha: "If the blobs haven't eaten it all."
ORN: "They were also enemies"
Cassandra Lionheart: "True."
Hector looks around for any signs on the ground or hanging somewhere that would indicate a shop that sells elemental items.
[OOC] WC GM: 4000 XP for each PC from the fight, BTW.
[OOC] Pak: Level woooo
[OOC] WC GM: Streetwise to find a shop.

[OOC] WC GM: And please leave the !level until after the session.
ORN: "This unit will attempt to locate also."
ORN rolled 1d100: 10 [Total: 10 (Low), Avg and got 10.00]
[OOC] ORN: awareness though, good roll, but might not be enough with penalty
[OOC] Hector: 1-10 is crit.
Pak: .roll 1d100
[OOC] Hector: you can crit skill rolls.
Pak rolled 1d100 and got 45 ( Total: 45 )
You easily find what used to be shops. And looters - it seems some Viera have had the same thought, and wish to survive rather than be consumed.
[OOC] Pak: Pass by…27, I think)
Pak eeks.
Pak: "Oh!"
You find one that hasn't been looted thoroughly, yet.
Hector starts grabbing elemental items, making sure to separate them by element.
ORN: "Over here!"
Pak: "So there are some bunnies that are still sane."
[OOC] Sakha: And what might we find?
ORN looks at what's in there, focusing on equipment/accessories since he's HORRID with elemental items
Cassandra Lionheart: "Probably the Fluffists!"
Sakha: "Probably the fluffers, they still have a leader"
[OOC] WC GM: Determining that.
Hector: "Forget them, momentarily. We need to load up on element bombs."
You see a few Patchists among the looters. It seems, for now, the old war has been forgotten overnight in favor of mere survival.
Pak: "Hmm… >.>"
Cassandra Lionheart: "okay, so lets go for the bombs then. Hopefully there is enough."
ORN: "This unit is inept with elemental throwaways. This unit will seek something more substantial"
Cassandra Lionheart: "I'll just seek anything right now."
[OOC] Hector: Can we wrap soon? I have RL stuff that's encroaching.
You find 10 each Antarctic Winds, Bomb Cores, Lightning Marbles, and Shear Feathers. You also find 10000 gil in the cash registers.
[OOC] WC GM: Right, working towards that.
[OOC] Hector: 1666 gil per person, right?
ORN: (so 1666gp each)
Pak snatches 3 of each.
ORN not touch the elementals
[OOC] WC GM: Split it up how you want. That's what you get in place of gil from the blob. ;)
Cassandra_Lionheart takes one of each elemental bomb
Hector gives two more of each bomb to Pak. //"Stick to these. I know you like to gamble, but this time, we have to bet on the sure thing."
Pak: "Right~"
Pak hands the remaining 4 of each to Sakha.
Hector: "Cass, don't bother with those. We need you doing support and healing."
Pak: "She could use a few, why not?"
ORN: "This unit is the only one who should not be carrying several of these due to incompetance."
Hector: "You and your sister's hands'll be tied with using your offensive powers. Cassie should stick to backup with me."
Cassandra_Lionheart just stands there and listens
ORN: "Additional damage could be required. Pigeonholing would only reduce our chances"
Just then, one of the looters comes up to you. "…stock? Able to fight?"
Hector: "Yeah. Life's funny like that."
ORN spins around and points spear at the looter
She backs off a bit.
Sakha looks at them and hands them to Ahiru. "These are merely toys, I can use my own power for the same." But she does keep one of each.
ORN: "This unit and these helpers are not stock. Any hostilities will be dealt with mercilessly due to the situation"
Hector: "Considering where I'm from, there's no such thing as stock, unless you mean livestock like cows."
Looter: "I can worry about that AFTER I find out why I can't make food anymore."
Pak: "Milf went nuts."
ORN: "This unit knows the reason."
Hector: "Milf's gone bonkers. That's why. And we're going to fix it."
Cassandra Lionheart: "I am getting tired of being called stock! I never had the stupid ritual done to me!"
Sakha: "Your god is unstable, and always has been. Don't rely on her."
ORN: "The influence of Milf has been eliminated, and will not return in proper fashion until such time as all of milf has been properly subdued. This may require the elimination of the fluffer leader."
Looter: "Milf DID seem kind of distant…but she's still there. We can feel her."
ORN: "once re-established, your food may take a vastly different form however."
Looter: "…you said you knew why Milf is being interfered with?"
Cassandra Lionheart: "Yeah, like, not directly from you."
ORN: "Milf was already berserk. Thus your destroyed ecology and bizzare eating habits."
The looter frowns. "Don't talk about our goddess like that!"
Pak: "The leader of the Patchers…"
Pak: "She killed herself. That's why."
[OOC] ORN: yeah, at the end of our weapons ;p
[OOC] Pak: Hey, she did the final deed!
[OOC] Cassandra Lionheart: ran into them….I swear
[OOC] Pak: >.>
Looter: "Patches…dead?"
You notice that she's a Patchist too.
Looter: "…even Milf might cry, for the loss of her…"
Cassandra Lionheart: "How come you haven't been turned to…a blob?"
ORN: "Perhaps they become blobs after going hungry for too long…."
The looter blinks. "Because I've been dodging them?"
Sakha: "Yes, she came to her senses and killed herself from the guilt of not accomplishing her original goal."
Cassandra Lionheart: "okay, bad question."
*she stands there with a sweatdrop over her forehead*
Looter: "I heard my sister praying to Milf for survival, but…then she changed…almost sucked me in. I got away and I've been running all night."
Sakha: "The ones last night were praying too…"
Hector: "Hm. So praying to Milf makes you a blob?"
Sakha: "Some goddess, answering prayers by making you monsters."
[OOC] Hector: That's like the Joker curse gone NUTS.
ORN: "Perhaps losing half of herself has driven her further into insanity. we must end this soon"
[OOC] Hector: Do the Joker curse, turn into one. Or your face'll melt off like in Innocent Sin.
Cassandra Lionheart: "Right."
Looter: "…I'm not sure whether to trust you or to kill you…but my heart says your words sound sincere enough. Here."
The looter pops a few vials - she's a Chemist, apparently. The party's HP and MP recover.
Cassandra Lionheart: "Thank you."
Hector: "Thanks. Now, go find someplace safe to hide. We'll take care of everything."
ORN nods
ORN: "This unit will end this nightmare"
ORN sparkles heroically
[OOC] Amatsu: Quit draining the special effects budget! >.>
Looter: "I'll trACK!"
A psuedopod - made of half a Viera - reaches through a crack in the wall and engulfs the looter's head. She is quickly dragged out, kicking and trying to scream.
Ahiru smiles. "When this is all over, I'll see if Milf can come back and lead you properly."
ORN bursts forward to try and take out the pesudopod
[OOC] Amatsu: Bet that's her sister too. >.>;
Cassandra Lionheart: "NO!"
*rushes after also*
Hector grabs Cass' arm. "No to you."
Hector: "Stop running off after every little tragedy."
ORN gonna try and Enice that pseudopod and shatter it off before the girl gets sucked in completely
Pak: "…You didn't stop ORN, though."
Ahiru pouts after the Viera.
Cassandra_Lionheart get jerked back and slams hard into the ground, but first
Pak points.
[OOC] WC GM: ORN: roll it.
Hector: "You think I can keep him from doing something when he has his mind set on it?"
Sakha: "It's a Viera."
[OOC] ORN: its called inertia. he'd dislocate something ;p
ORN rolled 1d100-134 and got 48 ( Total: -86 )
Cassandra_Lionheart just sits on the ground and stews for a bit…damn that landing hurt
[OOC] ORN: hit? not hit?
ORN manages to free the looter. Unfortunately, her head and neck were already partially digested; she clutches at her throat, trying to breathe.
ORN have no idea what to do about that
[OOC] Amatsu: Nothing a potion can't fix. Potions cure everything but cancer.
ORN: "This viera requires help!"
ORN tries pouring potion on her face?
[OOC] WC GM: They fix HP, not plot injuries.
[OOC] ORN: in a "that always works when I'm missing chunks" way
Hector: "Yeesh."
Sakha: "…"
The Viera's face heals up. The inside of her throat, however, remains clogged; she's coughing up blood.
[OOC] Amatsu: Oh, the 'Why didn't they Phoenix Down Aeris' type of plot damage.
Sakha: "That's crueler than what I would do."
[OOC] Cassandra Lionheart: I got Healing, let me try something
ORN: "She appears to be… choking on something?"
Cassandra_Lionheart runs to her and begins to figure something out
Pak: "Eeegh…"
Cassandra Lionheart rolled 1d100 and got 51 ( Total: 51 )
[OOC] Cassandra Lionheart: pass by 5
[OOC] Sakha: heimlich?
[OOC] WC GM: -40 mod, since she's already almost gone.
[OOC] Cassandra Lionheart: so fail?
[OOC] Sakha: WC is railroading :P
Clearing her throat would be the way to go - but by the time Cassandra can reach in to start, the Viera has breathed her last.
[OOC] WC GM: WC is trying to wrap up as requested :P
[OOC] ORN: indeed ;p
Cassandra Lionheart: "Damn it! Late again!"
ORN: "This unit was not fast enough"
Cassandra_Lionheart puts her head down and walks away.
The blob behind the pseudopod begins banging on the wall.
Hector has seen enough death to just deal with it.
Sakha burns the body as a courtesy.
[OOC] Amatsu: To think, if Hector didn't interfere, the Viera would have lived. >.>
Pak: "Gyun."
[OOC] ORN: heh
[OOC] Hector: Bite me.
Cassandra Lionheart: "Lets get out of here and find a safe haven again!"
[OOC] Hector: He's not a damn psychic, and hindsight's always 20/20.
Pak: "Agreed. n.n;"
ORN nods, a bit down
[OOC] ORN: … the scary part is you're wrong. With some people the hindsight's… just as bad ^^;;;;;;;;;
[OOC] Hector: Bite me.
[OOC] ORN: wasn't refering to you
[OOC] Cassandra Lionheart: End here?
[OOC] Hector: Good timing. Burgers are ready.
With the body burned, the blob stops pounding the walls and moves on. It didn't seem to sense you this time…//
