EC Session 2.9

Evening, Boltember 1 Pluday.
Hours pass. The blobs get bigger. Fortunately, you manage to avoid directly encountering any more - so far.
But as you search, it becomes increasingly apparently that Fluffy is not now within the city, if she ever was.
Hector: "Huh."
Ahiru: "If she's not here, maybe we should check on our friends?"
You see fewer and fewer Viera not part of the blobs as time goes by - either they left the city, or they were absorbed.
Cassandra Lionheart: "Well, there and what about the caves also?"
ORN: "It is possible"
Pak: "We should probably check with those researchers… they might not know the situation. n.n;"
Hector: "Hm. Not a bad idea. Don't want them getting killed."
Cassandra Lionheart: "Okay."
ORN nods
Pak: "And maybe they'll have heard more about Fluffy."
Cassandra Lionheart: "Well, I say we high tail it, before the blob finds us!"
ORN nods
ORN: "This unit would agree with haste."
[OOC] ORN: and so we run?
Pak: "Let's-a go~"
Cassandra_Lionheart breathes deeply, and begins a fast sprint with Pak
ORN kneels for a moment and blasts off, leaping across the rooftops
[OOC] Pak: …just to check, what level is everyone else on?
[OOC] ORN: 13
[OOC] Hector: 13/6
[OOC] WC GM: 13, no?
[OOC] Pak: …Ah, I need to level at some point then.
[OOC] ORN: didn't mark down the changes but they're in the history
[OOC] Pak: Thanks. n.n;
[OOC] Cassandra Lionheart: yeah 13
[OOC] WC GM: So you're trying to find Sess & company?
[OOC] ORN: yup
[OOC] Pak: Yup
[OOC] Cassandra Lionheart: yes
[OOC] WC GM: Stealth check, all.
ORN rolled 1d100: 56 [Total: 56 (High), Avg and got 56.00]
Cassandra Lionheart rolled 1d100 and got 12 ( Total: 12 )
[OOC] ORN: most likely a fail off default
Hector rolled 1d100: 80 [Total: 80 (High), Avg and got 80.00]
Pak rolled 1d100 and got 10 ( Total: 10 )
[OOC] Hector: Fail by 30 D:
[OOC] Cassandra Lionheart: I don't have that? Do I get it?
[OOC] Pak: Pass~)\)
[OOC] WC GM: Stealth is Intuitive, no?
[OOC] Pak: And cassie, you didn't roll QUITE low enough.
[OOC] Hector: I can never pass skill checks unless I crit. This is really fucked-up.
[OOC] Cassandra Lionheart: okay, thanks Pak, its still a pass then
[OOC] Hector: I need to wear underwear made of rabbits' feet when I RP or something.
[OOC] WC GM: Ahiru/Sakha?
[OOC] Pak: A 12 passes if you have at least… 5 agi
Ahiru rolled 1d100: 87 [Total: 87 (High), Avg and got 87.00]
Sakha rolled 1d100: 31 [Total: 31 (Low), Avg and got 31.00]
[OOC] Cassandra Lionheart: AGI 9
[OOC] Sakha: FAil by 16 - would pass if it was an agi check
Pak and Cassandra almost aren't there. ORN manages to catch the sun just so, however, and Ahiru, Hector, and Sakha trip across a wooden beam in their haste - which was holding up a building, causing it to collapse noisily.
[OOC] Pak: …Hahahahaha XD
Some of the large blobs in the distance begin heading your way.
ORN: "Incoming!"
[OOC] Hector: I really truly honestly believe my shitty roles are going to give me an ulcer.
[OOC] Hector: Rolls.
Cassandra Lionheart: "Oh beautiful!"
[OOC] Hector: I already have stress and anxiety problems.
Sakha prepares to block any approaches with a wall of ice to delay pursuit.
Hector: "Keep running!"
Sakha is.
ORN keeps jumping
Ahiru scrambles on her way.
Cassandra_Lionheart burns speed.
You're nearly to the edge of the city - odd, there do not seem to be any blobs out there, though surely Viera have fled that way.
Pak runrunrunrunrun!
Sakha: "Hmm… Maybe the blobs are localized in the city?"
Hector: "We'll…think about that…when we're done…with running!"
Hector huff puff
Cassandra Lionheart: "Yeah…keep going and don't look back!"
Sakha glares at him and continues on herway.
A blob tries to step on you - only for a massive fireball to impact it, sending it reeeling.
ORN: "?!?"
Sakha blinks and looks to the source of the fireball.
?: "Reload quickly! The way they're congregating, there's more survivors in there!"
It's coming from outside the walls. There's a gate nearby.
Cassandra Lionheart: "All right!"
Hector runs toward the voice.
Ahiru obeys happily and hops over.
ORN leaps up towards the noise, see if he can see it
Cassandra_Lionheart runs towards the voice also.
Sakha stalks closer at her own pace - she's not going to jump when someone says so just because.
[OOC] Sakha: I'm such a cat.
Outside is…farmland? Somewhat. And a crude ballista.
[OOC] Hector: Kitty. :3
[OOC] ORN: can I see who/what's there from the jump?
Pak oooohs at the ballista.
It's Sess and her friends. Most of them are tending to the land, trying to quickly pull food out for the large number of Viera - apparently ex-residents of the city.
One of them pulls a large carrot out of the ground and loads it into the ballista.
Hector slows to a jog, then to a stop in front of Sess.
Hector: "Yo. What's up?"
Cassandra Lionheart: "Sess! Thank goodness! Need help?"
It does not take long to notice - where they used to have a variety of plants, now they are growing almost entirely carrots.
ORN lands near the Viera and looks around… just in case
Hector quirks an eyebrow up. //"Carrot missiles?"
ORN: "…. ?"
The second thing you notice is that they all have bags under their eyes - bags under bags, in Sess's case.
Pak: "Bwah?"
Cassandra Lionheart: "Sess, you look like hell!"
Sess: "It's what we could grow quickly. I don't suppose any of you can aim this thing?"
Sakha swishes her tail indignantly.
ORN looks it over
Hector: "Ranged combat's not exactly my thing."
ORN: "This unit can likely steer it in the proper direction"
[OOC] ORN: Systems?
Hector: "You do that, Orn."
Cassandra Lionheart: "Erm, I'm not good with it. I can heal any injured thought."
Sess: "We've been making enough food for everyone."
You count easily tens of thousands of Viera sitting around. "It's…we're almost ready to drop."
[OOC] WC GM: Weapon Systems
Pak: "Right. x.x"
ORN: "Please rest."
[OOC] WC GM: Though I'll allow Systems at a penalty.
Pak gives Sess a Cure to help restore her energy.
Cassandra Lionheart: "Um, Sess can I help with anything?"
[OOC] ORN: Depending on penalty I may be better off with defaulting AGI?
Sess tries to intercept Pak, but can barely lift her limbs - her tiredness is more fatigue than wounds.
[OOC] ORN: systems probably better. Add acc to it as weapon?
Pak: "Hm… :/"
Sess: "If you can help with the growing, or tend to my people."
[OOC] ORN: systems+ACC = 111 before penalties anyways.
Cassandra Lionheart: "I'll tend to the people. I don't think I'm good with the growing part."
Hector: "Take a rest. We've got it covered."
[OOC] WC GM: Systems would be a straight check. Weapon Systems would get +ACC
Pak: "Growing?"
ORN loads the ballista
Hector: "Food."
Hector: "And not dead people."
Pak: "I know, I don't know how to do that. Maybe Sis can?"
[OOC] ORN: kk. in that case I'm defaulting weapon systems, since that'll be higher with ACC than just systems alone
[OOC] WC GM: Alright. Roll to hit.
[OOC] ORN: 79 vs 50..
ORN rolled 1d100-79 and got 94 ( Total: 15 )
One of the attendants lights the carrot ablaze before ORN triggers the launcher.
[OOC] Hector: fffffffffffffffffffffffffffuck
Cassandra_Lionheart goes to the garden and begins to help as best as she can.
ORN gonna use GF on that
ORN rolled 1d100-79 and got 63 ( Total: -16 )
It hits! Skewering one blob that was about to step over the city wall. The blob reels, staggers, and collapses with a CRASH.
You can see it lighting up - though the blob itself is no longer visible above the wall, its flames are.
ORN looks over to the attendant
Sakha: "… Maybe I can help channel your magics to speedgrow the plants…"
ORN: "Thank you."
Hector: "Huh. Do those things just hate carrots or something?"
[OOC] Hector: blobs = Kou Uraki? XD
Attendant: "They hate fire. Carrots…like Sess said, it's what we can grow."
Hector: "Hm. Pretty damned clever."
Cassandra Lionheart: "Okay!"
Attendant: "Though it helps that they're kind of like flaming stakes."
ORN picks up another bigass carrot and loads it on the launcher
Hector: "I bet the place is gonna smell pretty awful after this is all over."
Cassandra Lionheart: "Okay, so what can I do here to help?"
ORN: "Hector does not like Carrots?"
Sess: "I hate to impose, but can you make sure my people are safe?"
Cassandra Lionheart: "Sure, Sess. Where are they?"
Hector: "What? I'm talking about the piles of blob-flesh."
She gestures around. "Here, and beyond."
Pak ohs. "Hey, I can cast fire! :3"
Sess: "ALL of my people."
Cassandra_Lionheart runs and begins to adminster Cure and healing power to her need y allies.
Hector: "Hm."
Attendant: "…if you can do that, I can concentrate on making your ammo. I think I'm good for four more shots."
Three more blobs approach from behind the city wall.
Hector: "Alright, Orn. Make 'em count."
Pak: "Ack!"
Pak hmms.
Pak: "Lemme give you a boost!"
ORN nods
There is a carrot - not yet flaming - on the launcher.
ORN readies, waits for pak to light it
Pak IMs Fire to light it up.
ORN Fires!
[OOC] Pak: MP cost?
ORN rolled 1d100-79 and got 34 ( Total: -45 )
[OOC] WC GM: Costs same as Fire.
Pak then uses a Moogle Reels!
Pak rolled 1d10 and got 3 ( Total: 3 )
One blob down! Two to go. The attendant concentrates - given the very large leaves near her feet, it's an easy guess where the next projectile is.
ORN: "This unit could learn to appreciate the use of such weapon systems…"
Pak rolled 1d100 and got 1 ( Total: 1 )
Pak rolled 1d100 and got 75 ( Total: 75 )
[OOC] Hector: …holy crap.
[OOC] Hector: You SUPERCRITTED the first one.
[OOC] Pak: Hah, that's still a fail.
[OOC] Hector: *cry*
[OOC] Hector: What's a 3, anyway?
[OOC] Pak: Star- As in, Moogle Healing Dance
[OOC] Pak: And I have to go for a while. It probably shouldn't be longer than 10 minutes
[OOC] WC GM: So, loading and lighting the next one?
[OOC] Pak: Just have me keep lighting
ORN nod
ORN aims and fires at the next blob
ORN rolled 1d100-79 and got 74 ( Total: -5 )
[OOC] ORN: eep… hope they don't have any evade
A grazing hit, but not enough. Blob 2 keeps coming.
[OOC] Hector: Man, it'd be nice if Pak got the bunnygirl kiss and used it on Orn.
[OOC] WC GM: That's what Pak was going for. Didn't happen, unfortunately.
ORN: "This unit will require additional ammunition. My appologies"
[OOC] Hector: i'm glad I wasn't the only one who thought of it.
ORN looks around in case there's other spare carrots other than those the attendant is making
The attendant nods, concentrating more. She wobbles unsteadily on her feet - but soon enough, there's another one ready.
There are many carrots around - but none nearly big enough to serve as ammunition.
ORN gives her a tintcure
ORN loads the carrot, waits for it to be lit, and fires
ORN rolled 1d100-79 and got 60 ( Total: -19 )
Cassandra Lionheart: "Anybody need help here?"
[OOC] ORN: looks like I'll be rolling high today
ORN: "Please aid this ammunition-crafter. She seems rather unsteady"
The attendant blinks, slightly more alert. "Thanks. That…will help."
Another grazing hit. Blob 2 is almost over the wall!
Hector gives his Tincture to the attendant as well. "I'm sorry to have to make you do this."
A few more seconds, and the next projectile is ready.
ORN Loads, waits for pak, and then fires again
ORN rolled 1d100-79 and got 42 ( Total: -37 )
[OOC] ORN: I was half expecting a 99
Attendant: "I choose to do this of my own will. But I thank you for your help."
The second blob is down, almost directly atop the first! My, that's a pretty bonfire it makes.
[OOC] ORN: need a bloody 1 or something!
Cassandra Lionheart: "No problem."
[OOC] Sakha: Can I make the food too?
A few more seconds, and the next projectile is ready.
ORN lets pak light it and fires at the third one, obviously low on time
ORN rolled 1d100-79 and got 8 ( Total: -71 )
[OOC] WC GM: You'd have to check vs. Lore: Magic or the like - you've never seen the spells they're using.
[OOC] Hector: CRIT!
Sakha rolled 1d100: 17 [Total: 17 (Low), Avg and got 17.00]
[OOC] Sakha: Thasts a pass
[OOC] WC GM: Crit. Not only extra damage, but you crit-learn Weapon Systems.
[OOC] Amatsu: * The carrot transforms into a homing missile and bombards the blob.
[OOC] ORN: niiice… at what rating, 20?
Hector: "…Wow. I bet that was a hell of a learning experience, eh, Orn?"
He laughs.
[OOC] WC GM: Yep.
[OOC] Hector: ICBM TOSS!
ORN: "This unit may be able to repeat such feats in the future."
This carrot sails straight and true, and EXPLODES within the blob. It'd look nicer if it didn't explode into flaming half-digested Viera bodies.
ORN: "… … Could we use something pointier next time?"
Hector: "Let's hope so. I think I may have to design some kind of explosive launcher for you."
ORN: "That may be appreciated."
[OOC] WC GM: Sakha: so, yes, you can help via IM.
Hector gets hit squarely in the face with a boob.
Hector falls backwards.
Sakha starts channeling her energies to assist in the food/ammo creation.
Sess: "…we're safe for the moment. Thank you."
Hector pushes the boob off of his face and gets up.
ORN nods
ORN: "This was an entertaining experience. This unit thanks you"
Cassandra_Lionheart looks around, and sees everybody is all right, and sighs.
Sess: "I'm going to fall asleep now."
She does so, without ceremony, collapsing to the ground.
Hector picks her up. "That's no place for a woman to sleep. You need a real bed."
Hector looks for a tent.
The only tents visible, are almost overflowing with occupants. It appears that many of the evacuees are almost freeloading.
Ahiru wanders up to some of the freeloaders. "Whatcha doin?"
ORN pokes hector on the shoulder
ORN points at pak
Evacuee: "Trying to figure out what just happened. Why can't I eat my children any more?"
Cassandra_Lionheart goes to one of the tents and says "Mind if we have someone sleep in here?"
[OOC] ORN: *snicker* .. nice line WC
[OOC] ORN: oh noes, morals?
[OOC] Julian: Great, the feline duo there made my brain asplode
ORN: "Eat ammunition. It appears to be well suited to you"
The tent is full up - most of the occupants asleep, though a few awake enough to give Cassandra a look.
Hector goes over to the least-full tent.
Evacuee: "Ammunition…?"
ORN points at the ballista ammo
Cassandra Lionheart: "I'm sorry, I didn't mean to wake anybody."
[OOC] ORN: and the ones that were too small, obviously failed attempts
Evacuee: "…you mean, carrots? But…they taste so wierd."
Evacuee2: "I'm not certain I want to trust anything that didn't come out of my body."
ORN: "Most of this unit's companions would consider babies to taste rather strange also. Perhaps some form of sauce?"
Hector puts Sess down on a length of mattress or cloth.
Hector: "Well, it's no royal suite, but I suppose we can find you one later."
The least-full tent has a few Viera making out. But there's room to put Sess to the side.
The occupants do not seem to mind - or notice.
Cassandra Lionheart: "I'm sorry, I can't eat anything I birth. Its so gross."
Hector leaves before anything can happen.
Ahiru eats a carrot.
Hector goes over to Ahiru. "How're you holding up?"
Evacuee: "Ehhhh…?"
She blinks. "Oh! You're stock. I suppose you might find it that way."
Ahiru blinks "Alright, but not knowing where Fluffy is makes Fakir get that much ahead…"
Cassandra Lionheart: "I'm not stock! For the last time! I am intruigued by how it was done, but still! Geeze!"
ORN steps closer to cassie
Evacuee: "Of course you're stock. You're not a Viera, so you're stock."
ORN: "This unit's companions are not to be considered stock. Failure to remember this will result in living ammunition"
Hector: "Well, we'll pick up some leads."
Cassandra Lionheart: "ORN, let me handle this!"
ORN nods and backs off a step
Evacuee2 looks at Evacuee. "Maybe they were someone's pets or something."
Hector puts his hand on Ahiru's shoulder. "No worries, 'kay?"
Ahiru: "'Course."
Evacuee: "Maybe. So sad - even pets like that have to be cared for."
Cassandra_Lionheart walks into the tent with them and says "Look! I am not sotkc, nor a pet. I have not had the process done to me, like it was done to you! I am intruged, but not to eat me own child!"
These evacuees are not in a tent.
Hector heads back to the ballista and starts looking it over.
Evacuee2: "Listen to her. She's delusional from the stress."
ORN goes to see hector
Cassandra Lionheart: "Oh, I am. How the hell do I prove it to you?"
Ahiru wanders back int the Viera/Stock convo "Viera, Humans, Mithra, they're all living things, think and have… culture… Why can't you conceive of not eating meat? I never knew a rabbit that ate meat."
The ballista was very crudely made - obviously a rush job.
ORN: "Would it be possible to make a higher quality, portable version, perhaps using heavier ammunition?"
Hector: "Possible, but I'm not really that much of a craftsman. I'm just good at putting pieces together in my head."
[OOC] Pak: Back~
Hector: "With a little bit more research, I might be able to rig up some explosive ammunition, though."
[OOC] Hector: Is the Explosives skill just used for handling them, or could it apply to making them, given all the proper ingredients?
[OOC] WC GM: Nominally, I think it'd be Alchemy to make them - but I could allow Explosives too.
ORN: "This unit cannot realistically carry this particular model however. Strengthening to survive jumps would be required."
Cassandra_Lionheart taps her foot and says "I haven't even conceived yet."
[OOC] Hector: Please allow that, too.
ORN: "Perhaps crystaline construction?"
Hector: "I don't know. I'd need to do some research."
Attendant: "You might want to talk to the dwarves. I…used to live with them, when I was younger. Before…"
Sakha: "Before what?"
Attendant: "…well…you might need something like this to unseal the passage."
ORN nods
Hector: "Figured that."
Attendant: "They used to dig through the occasional rockslides that sealed off the tunnel. But the last one…they never did, and we've been too busy with our own survival to figure out why."
Hector: "We could also ask them to design something for Orn, some kind of body-mounted launcher."
[OOC] ORN: Every dragoon needs a tank gun?
ORN sparkles happily
Evacuee: "Oh! Is this a pet that wants to become stock?"
ORN stares
ORN: "? ? ?"
Hector: "Orn, get everyone together. We've got some dwarves to visit."
[OOC] ORN: who's she looking/refering to?
[OOC] Hector: brb, toilet
Evacuee2: "Well, no reason why she can't. Her former master is probably in there."
She nods towards the city.
[OOC] Hector: Cassie
[OOC] WC GM: Cassandra
Cassandra_Lionheart looks and says "Um, okay."
Pak: "…I'm lost. x.x"
ORN: "Who?"
Evacuee points to Hector. "There's some male stock. Just jump him."
ORN: "As enjoyable as Hector may find this, This unit is afraid your food-creation breeding cycle has been severely disrupted by current events"
Cassandra_Lionheart looks and laughs and says "I think not. He doesn't like me."
ORN: "Carrot ammunition will be required"
Evacuee's eyes lower. "…yeah. I guess…for now."
[OOC] ORN: First encounter with carrots was using them to take down giant legion-monsters. Obviously these vierra were meant to chew on shells.
[OOC] Hector: back
Sakha glares at the bunnies. "If you want some bunny to eat, I would not be opposed to serving up the next one to call any member of this group a 'pet' or 'stock'"
Cassandra_Lionheart looks at the Evacuee and says "Trust me. I'll be fine with his seed growing in me."
Evacuee2 looks at Sakha. "…oh. THAT would be your master."
Hector: "Yeah, Sakha's right. None of us are pets or stock."
Hector: "We have no masters but ourselves. This is a horrible culture shock to you, I'm sure."
Sakha is not hiding her mithraness
Pak: ">_> She's just my sister, not master…"
Evacuee: "Yeah. She looks the part. If I didn't know better, I'd swear she was a Mithra."
[OOC] ORN: though she'd sure like to use him in similar ways?
Sakha: "I AM."
Cassandra Lionheart: "Sakha!
ORN: "Your lives were just saved by Mithra"
Sakha is looking for a fight.
Evacuee: "…"
Evacuee2: "…"
ORN: "They also have not eaten you, as you can see. Please stand down and consume these Carrots"
Cassandra Lionheart: "Look if you can just forget this rift right now, maybe we can live in peace!"
Several eyes turn to Sakha.
Sakha stares them down right back
[OOC] WC GM: Sakha: Intimidation check.
Sakha rolled 1d100: 94 [Total: 94 (High), Avg and got 94.00]
[OOC] Pak: …
[OOC] ORN: …
[OOC] Pak: *cough*
[OOC] ORN: Seduction I say?
[OOC] WC GM: If you want.
Pak: "I'm a mithra too! T_T;;;"
ORN rolled 1d100: 85 [Total: 85 (High), Avg and got 85.00]
[OOC] ORN: Damn those bunnygirls >.<
[OOC] Pak: …can I roll a check of some kind? n.n;
[OOC] Sakha: Seduction is a skill i actually have
Cassandra Lionheart: "Come on. No fighting please!"
[OOC] ORN: well I did mean you ^^;;
[OOC] WC GM: Pak - sure. Intimidation, if you want.
[OOC] WC GM: Unless you're trying something else?
Hector rolled 1d100: 48 [Total: 48 (Low), Avg and got 48.00]
[OOC] Hector: attempted intimidation failed I bet
[OOC] Pak: I don't have that, but I have seduction!
Pak rolled 1d100 and got 56 ( Total: 56 )
[OOC] Pak: Fail :<
[OOC] Pak: …GF!@
Pak rolled 1d100 and got 27 ( Total: 27 )
[OOC] ORN: what's with highwind and sugar today? why hate us so?
[OOC] Pak: …fail by 7
[OOC] ORN: nice.
[OOC] Hector: None of us can make skill rolls unless we crit.
[OOC] ORN: … aw
Several Viera gather. "Mithra." "Mithra."
Pak: "…Male mithra…"
He mumbles but doesn't seem too confident.
Viera: "Maybe Milf's displeased we let a Mithra survive."
[OOC] Amatsu: I'm guessing Viera hate Mithra. >.>;
Viera2: "Will she make everything right if we kill them?"
ORN: "Unlikely. Milf has gone berserk"
Hector: "…oh, great. They've turned into moronic zealots."
[OOC] WC GM: Amatsu: read the back logs. But the short answer is yes.
ORN: "Mithra are currently your only hope of survival"
Sakha increases her aura with an emanation of cold. ((retry intimidation.))
Cassandra Lionheart: "No, it won't. It may drive Milf crazier!"
Sakha rolled 1d100: 11 [Total: 11 (Low), Avg and got 11.00]
[OOC] ORN: there we go
[OOC] Sakha: pass default
Pak: "It's more likely that she went mad 'cause of Patches' Suicide…"
ORN: "Or from the Incessant praying"
A very few of the Viera continue to hold their ground. Behind them, though, tens of thousands of voices call out "M-MITHRAAAAAA!"
…and then tens of thousands of Viera flee for their lives.
Cassandra_Lionheart blinks and says "Well, damn!"
[OOC] Sakha: I didn't QUITE crit though…
Sakha: "… good riddance."
[OOC] WC GM: No, but with the bonus you had, close enough.
Sakha: "They're little better than mindless animals."
Hector dusts his hands off. "Well, now that that's out of the way, I suppose we've got some dwarves to see."
Cassandra Lionheart: "I hope Sess didn't get rampled."
Pak: "I thought we needed to help them with stuff?"
[OOC] Ahiru: Did any remain at all?
[OOC] ORN: Sess and her bunch should
Nine Viera continue to circle Sakha and company.
In addition to Sess and her companions - who took shelter from the evacuating evacuees.
Ahiru thinks. "Any of you know where Fluffy is?"
Cassandra Lionheart: "Okay, back off, we don't want to fight you. We were just talking to you about the process. There was no need for this!"
ORN: "This unit would not suggest hostilities on the part of your wounded selves. Both groups have more important matters to attend to."
Hector: "Cripes. Look, I don't expect you to understand or support what we're doing. But for now, if you're in our way, you'll be forcefully ejected from this mortal coil by the business end of my whip."
ORN starts charging a CB
Viera: "Fluffy? If we knew where SHE was, we'd have executed her already."
Pak: "…Why's that- oh. For abandoning the city?"
Ahiru: "Why?"
Viera: "We were part of Patches' honor guard. We're not about to back down to some Mithra."
ORN: "…. That is unfortunate. It would have made our work much easier if you had."
Cassandra Lionheart: "No fighting! Damn it!"
ORN: "Where would she escape to?"
Hector puts his hand on Cassie's mouth. "Shut it. You're about as good of a diplomat sober as I am drunk."
Sakha gets haughty. "The come at me- if you dare~"
FormerSoldier: "Fluffy hasn't been seen in the city for months - and we haven't heard reports of her elsewhere."
FormerSoldier: "It's like she was hiding."
Cassandra_Lionheart sighs and says throught Hector's mouth "You taste like Viera, Hector!"
Hector pulls his hand back. "Low blow."
FormerSoldier: "Last I heard, she was talking about some 'solution to all our problems'."
FormerSoldier: "…why am I wasting my breath on a Mithra?"
She charges.
WC GM: //Battle order: FormerSoldierD:16 FormerSoldierF:16 ORN:15 FormerSoldierA:15 FormerSoldierB:15 Pak:14 Sakha:14 Hector:14 FormerSoldierI:14 FormerSoldierE:13 FormerSoldierH:13 Ahiru:12 Cassandra:10 FormerSoldierG:10 FormerSoldierC:9

Cassandra_Lionheart laughs and says //"But you are right about me not being diplomatic."
Hector: "Then try to stay quiet more often."
D and F try to claw Sakha!
WC GM rolled 2d100 and got 90, 44 ( Total: 134 )
Hector: "Hmph. Looks like we're in the middle of something."
[OOC] Hector: Did Sakha use her limit yet? 'cause that'd be awesome if she hasn't.
Both hit.
[OOC] Sakha: 100 hp to limit with unaware…. maybe
WC GM rolled 2d10+64,200% and got 3, 3 ( Total: 140.0 )
WC GM rolled 2d10+64 and got 10, 9 ( Total: 83 )
Sakha takes 140, ARM then 83, ARM damage.

[OOC] ORN: … us I'm not worried about. its the two mithra. Cherry blossom should help but…
[OOC] Sakha: Raise me, I AOE
[OOC] Hector: Unless Pak can IK half of them, we're fucked. The only people with the armor to survive more than one hit are me, Orn, and maybe Cass.
[OOC] Hector: I suggest we run.
[OOC] Pak: Lemme see…
Pak goes down too.
[OOC] Sakha: I can survive 1 hit of 83…

[OOC] Hector: We're FUCKED.
[OOC] ORN: I have one, but I'm about to fire
[OOC] Cassandra Lionheart: Damn.
[OOC] Sakha: They did just down 2 pt members like nothing
[OOC] Hector: So yes, we're going to run. Discretion is the better part of valor.
[OOC] Hector: And I rolled a sixteen so I hope that was successful.
[OOC] Sakha: Sakha won't like that when she gets up
[OOC] Julian: Depends if both enemies roll worse
Hector escapes!
[OOC] Sakha: leaving behind the mithra?
[OOC] ORN: yup
[OOC] Sakha: alone?
[OOC] ORN: I can't actually run
[OOC] Hector: …
[OOC] Hector: Wait, what.
[OOC] ORN: charging. I can take a round though… maybe
[OOC] Hector: Aren't we ALL RUNNING?
[OOC] Hector: Like, I select run and everyone runs.
[OOC] ORN: … isn't it individual run?
[OOC] Sakha: The mithra are down we can't
[OOC] WC GM: Each conscious combatant has to escape.
[OOC] Pak: BUT
[OOC] Cassandra Lionheart: I'm still here! I'll pick up Pak and Sakha
[OOC] WC GM: They can take KOed PCs with them.
[OOC] Pak: If ORN falls, he's assumed to be able to be picked up later.
Hector grabbed Pak on his way out.
[OOC] WC GM: But the combat continues until all are either escaped or KOed.
[OOC] Pak: Since he doesn't rot.
[OOC] ORN: … well limit at 0, but hopefully that'll charge it a bit
Soldiers I, E, and H round upon ORN, seeming to charge up something of their own.
[OOC] Aerdan: Um, dudes. egame canon? All the non-KO'd PCs can run away and the KO'd ones magically still go with them?
[OOC] WC GM: Ahiru!
[OOC] Julian: This ain't an e-game, Yoshi
[OOC] Aerdan: …And?
[OOC] Aerdan: WC pretty much stated that that's what happens here, so…

[OOC] Ahiru: pass SPD
[OOC] Ahiru: by 9
[OOC] Pak: …Er.
Ahiru escapes as well.
ORN fires spear straight up over the battlefield, waits a moment and makes a fist with right hand, shattering it and raining black death over all the enemies.
[OOC] Pak: Well… the way escape checks work, they roll against all enemy combatant's speeds.
ORN rolled 2d12+84,75% and got 6, 10 ( Total: 75.0 )
[OOC] Pak: But…That's nearly impossible to pass.
[OOC] Pak: So yeah…
[OOC] Amatsu: The best part is if ORN somehow wins, he'll get all the EXP I think.
[OOC] WC GM: Err…no, just against their own SPD.
[OOC] ORN: I better, if I'm getting abandoned -_-
[OOC] Amatsu: Cowards never reap rewards. :D
[OOC] WC GM: Cassandra!
[OOC] Hector: BIte me.
[OOC] ORN: Whether I stay or go depends on how much damage they're gonna deal me before my next action though
[OOC] Hector: who the fuck keeps fighting something that can oneshot them?
[OOC] Amatsu: Those with courage.
[OOC] Hector: This isn't SRW. We can't cast Alert.
[OOC] Ahiru: Ahiru just trust Hector's leadership.
[OOC] Hector: Fuck, man. Even Evasion barely works in this system.
Cassandra_Lionheart looks and says //"ORN..I'll stay." and slashes at A!
[OOC] ORN: Every single shmup ship in existance? ;p
[OOC] Amatsu: Because those with Courage can defy any odds!
Cassandra Lionheart rolled 1d100 and got 87 ( Total: 87 )
[OOC] Hector: Courage and a giant robot.
[OOC] ORN: hell yeah
[OOC] Amatsu: ORN is close to a robot.
[OOC] Hector: And we have no giant robots.
[OOC] ORN: WC: how wounded do they look?
[OOC] Ahiru: Sakha was 2-shotted, she would have survived 1 hit from 1 enemyt
[OOC] WC GM: Hit
[OOC] Hector: Yes, I'd like to just stomp around this shithole country in Daitarn 3, but that's not gonna happen.

[OOC] ORN: take 10% in status phase right?
[OOC] WC GM: Yes.
[OOC] WC GM: 10% of current
Sakha: (10%current))
[OOC] ORN: 123/162
ORN: "This group lacks support. This unit will be forced to escape."
Cassandra Lionheart: "Go! Take Pak with you."
ORN: "Follow"
[OOC] WC GM: Since there's only two left - if you're both escaping, only one needs to succeed. The other can carry.
[OOC] Pak: Hector grabbed Pak
ORN rolled 1d100: 72 [Total: 72 (High), Avg and got 72.00]

[OOC] Cassandra Lionheart: sorry
Cassandra_Lionheart runs!
Cassandra Lionheart rolled 1d100 and got 72 ( Total: 72 )
[OOC] Cassandra Lionheart: Shoot!
[OOC] ORN: this is where jumping away would come in handy..
WC GM rolled 1d100: 66 [Total: 66 (High), Avg and got 66.00]
The former soldiers circle ORN and Cassandra. //"Your friends seem to have run off on you."
[OOC] Pak: …Yeah, why didn't you just use jump? >_>
ORN nods
ORN: "That will not be forgotten"
FormerSoldier: "Why do you travel with Mithra?"
ORN: "To restore the balance."
Cassandra Lionheart: "We are on a fact finding mission."
ORN: "Races matter not for this purpose"
Cassandra Lionheart: "Yes."
ORN: "Most of the elemental spirits, not only milf, but others as well, have gone berserk"
Cassandra_Lionheart shuts up now and looks down
FormerSoldier: "Other elemental spirits? What, are you some kind of Gaia avatar?"
ORN: "Much as the only food you were capable of consuming were your own offspring, Others have had different problems. The lightning spirit and its army of machinae had to be put down to free those it was oppressing, for example"
ORN shrugs
ORN: "This unit is connected to Gaia and Grav, but would not know much else"
ORN: "Official designation is ORN Countermachina Autonomous Golem IV"
ORN points to number of eyes
ORN: "This unit was asked by creators to aid others, and has been aiding Grav in restoring events"
The Viera's face scrunches up a bit. "…Grav? Who's he?"
ORN: "Elemental spirit in control of gravity"
ORN: "Allows this unit to… not… break things… while walking around. Similar to Milf's control over life, but for gravity"
ORN: "Bolt Controlled lightning, but went berserk. It was also found that Milf, and all other spirits, have also. We have been tasked with re-establishing the balance. For example, Vierra appear to originally have consumed vegetation."
ORN: "This changed, perhaps some time after their arrival on this world"
ORN: "We were given a warning regarding that additional moon from the Viera Leader before she ended her life to contain Milf, however. It may be the source."
ORN: "It is likely your invasion and elimination of the Mithra was due to this imbalance, and the original purpose of your travel forgotten?"
FormerSoldier: "I've been eating other Viera for as long as I know. And watching out for fluffers wanting to eat met - so my tattoo ink will grow their fur."
ORN sparkles all heroically and knowlegable (sorta. I saw the pictures)
[OOC] WC GM: Right. Roll it. :P
ORN rolled 1d100: 81 [Total: 81 (High), Avg and got 81.00]
[OOC] ORN: failed ^^;
They're not going for it yet.
ORN: "This unit has not been around very long either."
ORN: "Creation date was first of Gaial in the last year."
ORN: "Nevertheless, in current mission, matters of race must be put asside. Survival of all races require it. You may consider this unit as Elvaan representative if it aids in your comprehension."
ORN: "Companion Cassie is Human. This group has also encountered Viera researchers which had come to similar conclusions. The result are these orange projectiles which appear to be easily consumed by your race"
FormerSoldier: "What is this…Human you speak of?"
ORN: "Yet another race. Furless but not tattooed, and not Viera. Note the lack of ears"
ORN looks over at Cassie
The Viera do too.
Cassandra_Lionheart smiles and blushes a bit
ORN: "Elvaan are similar to this unit, though not made of rock, and much smaller"
ORN: "Creators also lacked stablisation section in the rear, and number of eyes similar to elder unit Two."
FormerSoldier: "There are Viera, Elvaan, Moogle, Dwarves, and M-mithra…"
ORN: "Also Human, and possibly others."
Cassandra Lionheart: "And humans. Which is what I am."
FormerSoldier: "…I've never heard of Human."
ORN: "They are from a seperate region, and were being controlled by Bolt's Avatar"
The Viera walks up to Cassandra. "Didn't someone say you were a pet?" She pokes Cassandra in the ears, feeling the non-pointed lobes.
ORN: "It is likely Milf was split for some reason, and was incarnated as both the patch and fluffist leaders. It would explain her continued dissapearance and what your leader told us."
Cassandra Lionheart: "I was not a pet! Darn it, I am not even stock!"
ORN: "Cassie is not from these lands. Neither are any of this group save the encountered viera. No stock is present no required in this fashion in these lands"
[OOC] Sakha: <Sakha> "I want to kiiiiiiiiiill theeeeeeeeeeeeeeem~"
ORN: "It will no longer, here, if we are allowed to knock sense back into Milf through her defeat. Those in other lands consume grown foods and do not require gestation for supper"
Cassandra Lionheart: "Look, if you want to check me out, got ahead."
The Viera blinks, confused by both ORN's and Cassandra's words.
ORN: "Please ask questions if you require clarification"
[OOC] Cassandra Lionheart: Roll seduction?
ORN Sparkles confidently
[OOC] WC GM: Make it clearer what you're offering first, Cass.
[OOC] Cassandra Lionheart: Okay.
[OOC] ORN: I do think she's offering… 'a closer look' ^_~
Cassandra Lionheart: "Look, I will show you all, I am different from the Mithra and other races!"
*begins to strip down*
The Viera looks her up and down.
[OOC] WC GM: Now you can roll. ;)
Cassandra Lionheart rolled 1d100 and got 39 ( Total: 39 )
ORN: "An excellent example as you can see."
[OOC] Cassandra Lionheart: Thank you
…the Viera, Cass, and ORN wind up making love, not war.
Meanwhile, the other four make their getaway! Runrunrun…it doesn't seem like the Viera are following.
What do you do?
[OOC] Amatsu: Nothing wrong with that.
Hector stops.
Hector looks back.
[OOC] WC GM: How far away did you stop?
[OOC] Hector: Couldn't have made it that far in one round.
[OOC] Hector: A half-mile at MOST.
At this point, the Viera have ORN and Cassandra encircled, and appear to be talking to them.
[OOC] Ahiru: I think only to cover then I'd stop
You're too far away to hear what they're saying.
Ahiru walks back, leaving Sakha somewhere safe and comfy.
[OOC] WC GM: BTW, during the, shall we say, action, one of the Viera cures ORN's Poison.
[OOC] ORN: cool.
[OOC] WC GM: Leaving the details of exactly how it's removed offscreen. >_>
[OOC] ORN: how many extra rounds of damage should I tick? ^^;
Hector is still carrying Pak.
[OOC] WC GM: Let's call it two.
Hector is also QUITE surprised that Orn and Cassie are making nice with the viera.
Hector: "…what the?"
[OOC] ORN: they just walked back to us or what?
Suddenly, Hector sees Cassandra begin to strip.
[OOC] WC GM: No, they're watching from a distance.
[OOC] Ahiru: Ahiru's coming back
[OOC] WC GM: Ah, K.
Hector stops and immediately turns around.
[OOC] WC GM: So Hector's now facing away?
[OOC] Hector: Yes. I do not want to see Cassie naked.
[OOC] ORN: you's missing out ;p
[OOC] Hector: The goggles do nothing.
[OOC] Amatsu: They never do.
The Viera see Ahiru approaching. "…you were with them. Are you a…Human…too?"
Ahiru: "Ummm…. sorta?"
[OOC] Hector: ahiru is a duck-quack
ORN: "This is a duck."
ORN: "Modified due to grav's influence it would appear, though she occasionally takes her original form."
Ahiru: "Not right now tho."
FormerSoldier: "So…you mean, right now she's not a duck."
ORN: "Human at this moment"
[OOC] Julian: OH MY GOD. That was funny! "This is a duck" was never something I thought I'd ever hear said seriously
Hector puts Pak down. His arms hurt.
FormerSoldier: "I've only seen ducks in picture books."
Pak is layed next to Sakha, I guess.
FormerSoldier: "They looked tasty."
Hector stretches up, then down, then around, and sees Ahiru also making nice with the viera.
[OOC] ORN: is this after all the happy happy funtime?
ORN: "They seem to be quite vicious in assault"
[OOC] WC GM: No, it's still leading up to it.
Ahiru changes into a duck and quacks.
[OOC] ORN: ooh
Hector sees Cassandra still naked. A couple of the Viera are inspecting her quite closely.
[OOC] Hector: I'm seeing her naked from the back or front?
The Viera picks Ahiru up, looking at her from all angles.
WC GM rolled 1d4 and got 4 ( Total: 4 )
[OOC] WC GM: From the right
Ahiru quacks again.
Hector covers his eyes.
[OOC] Pak: Sideboob?
[OOC] Amatsu: Hector doesn't like looking at girls?
The Viera inspects Ahiru like someone who's never personally held a cute furry - or in this case, feathered - creature would do.
[OOC] Hector: Hector doesn't like looking at Cassie.
[OOC] Ahiru: just not girls that are like a sister
Cassandra_Lionheart sees Hector not looking at her and sighs
ORN sparkles suggestively.
Ahiru flaps her wings
Cassandra Lionheart: "But as you can see, I'm pretty much the same functionally as you all are. I just nevr had the magic done to me."
[OOC] WC GM: Didn't defeat in combat, but still "defeated" them - 1890 XP and 703 Gil each for the battle, plus 2000 XP each for the pre-battle stuff.
[OOC] ORN: just us two for the defeat?
[OOC] WC GM: I'm overriding/house-ruling that part, since the story structure requires I keep the PCs at the same level. "Each" means everyone.
[OOC] ORN: k
[OOC] Hector: HOORAY! </Zoidberg>
ORN: "This unit would suggest that any other differences you may be interested in could be discovered with a more liberal application of.. touching."
The Viera take up ORN's suggestion, both for Cassandra and Ahiru.
[OOC] Ahiru: Bestiality? Carress the bitd!
Ahiru gets petted, stroked, and cuddled.
[OOC] Hector: Hey, we levelled.
Cassandra…well, ahem, let's just say this would be a good point to end the public log.//
