EC Session 3.11

Afternoon, Boltember 2 Aerday.
You are gathered around the general area where Fakir is expected to break through.
You estimate some time within the next two hours. It was a long trip, with quite the margin of error.
Cassandra_Lionheart watches the area
ORN had started to work on that column with the bone stuff, though that was gonna take more than fakir's ETA
Eventually, you hear rumbling. Sounds like he is about to arrive…over there!
Hector stands up and cracks his knuckles and shoulders.
ORN too busy to notice, so someone else will have to get the guy and duck couple back together ;p
Cassandra_Lionheart runs over to where he is coming out, and gets ready to pounce on him
Hector: "Hm. Well, all I can say is that I hope he hasn't brought anything big with 'im."
Cassandra Lionheart: "Yeah. But worry about it later."
Pak walks over to the spot… with about 50 feet between him and the wall.
Ahiru heads to the rumbling excitedly.
Hector: "Y'should probably back up, though. The rocks'll probably explode outta the way."
Felicia does similarly to Pak. She has no intention of being any closer to an exploding wall than she has to be.
Hector takes several steps back 'till he's standing near Pak.
Cassandra_Lionheart nods to Hector and steps back a bit
The wall does indeed explode out. Fakir charges out, across the "street" next to the wall, and seems about to just charge on through the house on the other side when he blinks, stops, and notices the party.
Sakha wanders over casually, keeping well back
Ahiru runs up and glomps Fakir.
Cassandra Lionheart: "Fakir. Wait, please."
Fakir gapes a bit, his mouth working, then eventually gets out, "…HOW?!?"
ORN: "?!? Ah."
Fakir returns Ahiru's hug freely. He is at least glad to see her.
ORN starts heading back down towards the explosion
Hector: "'sup?"
Ahiru: "We took the train."
Pak: "Train. :3"
Pak: ">:3"
Pak: "Don't expect us to not be able to catch you. If you run off again we'll follow you to the end of the world~"
ORN: "Taking care of Ahiru proves most difficult when her primary motivation continually runs away. It is pointless to resist… … her."
ORN points
Cassandra Lionheart: "Ahiru is worried about you sir."
Ahiru snuggles Fakir.
ORN: "This Group has also been assigned this quest. Failure to assist you would reduce exposure to violence."
ORN: "… for … justice. >.>"
Fakir: "…so I see. I may have underestimated you."
Cassandra_Lionheart looks at ORN and blinks "For justice…"
ORN: "er… yes. Entirely altruistic reasons."
ORN: "There is also the matter of your rapid consumption. Please teach This Unit speed-eating."
Hector: "We should go somewhere a little more private-seemin' and talk."
Felicia: "…I keep telling you he's not eating."
ORN figures barrages of questions works on the idiot trio, and sometimes works on the other folks, so obviously it'll stop him from running
Sakha: "That seems like a good idea.
Cassandra Lionheart: "Yes. We don't want everybody to hear our affairs."
ORN nods
Hector: "Sucks we can't find anyplace with a little less stone. Sound carries so friggin' far I bet you could a hear a child fart from six miles away."
Pak listens.
Hector quirks an eyebrow up. "CAN these dwarves fart? They're pure rock!"
Felicia: "…"
Pak: "The elves could."
Cassandra_Lionheart looks at Hector
Pak listens again.
Pak: "…"
Pak looks at Felicia.
Sakha: "They weren't rock."
Pak: "Hey, can Elves…?"
It occurs to Hector that, no, he has not heard any flatulence the entire time he has been underground. Not even in the flesh dwarves' town.
Hector: "o_O!"
[OOC] ORN: only them filthy humes eh? ;p
[OOC] Pak: Of course, Dwarves don't fart. They ferment.
[OOC] Cassandra Lionheart: Excuse me!
[OOC] ORN: its the beards. anyways.
[OOC] Hector: They probably expel all their gas through their mouths. Dwarven ale-burps = SMELLY.
Cassandra Lionheart: "Anyways, let us ind an Inn, right?"
Pak: "…"
Pak: "Wait, can mithra? o_O"
Felicia: "…"
Pak suddenly panics, not knowing if he can fart!
ORN nods
Felicia: "Yes, let's find an Inn."
Sakha smacks Pak.
Cassandra Lionheart: "Can we stop wondering about ass gas, please!"
ORN: "This Unit will return to the entertainment."
Pak ow.
Pak: "Kay, sorry ._."
ORN heads back over to his eating spot
Cassandra_Lionheart goes to see about an inn
There are quite a few inns, most of them within a block or two of the train station.
Hector wonders who or what Fakir is as he walks. The guy can slice rock, move like lightning, and he survived a punch to the throat which would kill a lesser man.
Cassandra Lionheart: "I found a nice little one. Follow me."
Pak: "Kay."
One of the cheaper, seedier ones - 3 blocks towards the city edge from the station - has a sign on its window: "Only 250 gil per head per night!"
Pak: "…"
Pak: "Per head?"
[OOC] WC GM: Awareness, all.
Pak rolled 1d100 and got 6 for a total of 6

[OOC] Cassandra Lionheart: Fail by 6
[OOC] Felicia: Pass
[OOC] Ahiru: fail by 26
[OOC] Sakha: pass
ORN rolled 1d100 and got 22 for a total of 22
Those who pass notice that it is written in Common, and that all the other signs in the town are written in the Dwarven language, Brogue.
[OOC] ORN: very very pass but not actually there ;p
Ahiru is completely absorbed in snuggling Fakir
Hector was looking at Sakha's legs.
Pak: "…Huh."
Pak: "Why is this in common?"
[OOC] Hector: Secretly!
[OOC] Sakha: XD
Cassandra Lionheart: "Erm…I don't know. It caught my eye."
Hector: "Only one way to find out."
Felicia: "Good question."
Pak peeks in.
Sakha checks the signs in brogue for better deals.
[OOC] WC GM: Roll Lang: Brogue to check them.
Sakha rolled 1d100 and got 97 ( Total: 97 )
Pak erk.
Pak sees a slightly run-down in. Yeah, "seedy" is the term for it.
[OOC] Sakha: ~_~
Pak hmms…
Cassandra Lionheart: "Shall I check the one in common?"
Sakha finds one that seems not to require any Gil at all!
[OOC] Sakha: o.O did I have a +40 bonus or something?
[OOC] Pak: >.>
Save for ORN, at least. The sign: "Rock beings - 100 gil per head. Flesh - one head per head."
[OOC] Pak: Shh. Just tell us about it.
[OOC] ORN: .. damnit, all they have to pay's a head. why do I always get stiffed? :P
[OOC] Cassandra Lionheart: heh
Sakha puzzles at the sign. "Rock beings 100 Gil per head…? I don't really like the wording… but it IS free…"
Pak perks and looks over at Sakha. "Free?"
Sakha: "Only ORN would have to pay here."
Pak: "Ah? Really? o.o"
Hector: "Hm."
Cassandra Lionheart: "Orn, I'll pay for you."
Felicia: "…Oh?"
Pak: "Wait… is it a poorhouse?"
Sakha: "Yeah…" Sakha analyzes the woding. Is the same word used in both instances of "head"?
[OOC] ORN: ORN is over at the big magma skeleton column, feasti… er… making an important passage off to somewhere. up I think it was
It is indeed the same word.
Pak looks at the interior.
The interior seems clean and nice. Pak can not help but notice the angry glares the innkeeper throws at him the instant he looks inside, though.
[OOC] Sakha: Ah nuts… then it's not going to be the 'head' that's 'fun'
[OOC] ORN: … that would be even worse than decapitation
Pak hmms.
[OOC] Sakha: why?
Pak: "Wait, so what does it say exactly?"
Pak looks back out.
Cassandra_Lionheart walks in behind Pak
Hector: "What's up, bro?"
[OOC] Felicia: Dead > Alive without penis
[OOC] Pak: …I think she was thinking another head.
Sakha: "'Flesh: One head per head'."
Pak: "…?"
Pak: "Where would we get heads?"
Hector: "…that sounds…wrong."
Felicia: "…"
Hector: "And dangerous."
Felicia: "I believe we may be better off with our first find."
Cassandra Lionheart: "Erm." *looks to the innkeeper* "Can we stay here please?"
Hector: "Yeah. I'd rather pay money to wake up alive than be dead in the morning for free."
Sakha: "Though ORN could get it cheaper here."
Hector: "Yo, Cass! We're outta here!"
Pak: "That's true."
Pak: "Let's let him stay here. n.n;"
The inkeeper GROWLS at Cassandra in broken Common. "Your filth! Hmph! You pay with your head, you stay here!"
Pak tugs Cassie outside.
Sakha walks away with a sigh.
Cassandra_Lionheart blinks at the innkeeper "How rude buddy! I'll chop your off first, before you get mine!!"
[OOC] ORN: ^^:
The innkeeper glares at Cassandra as if daring her to try.
Hector helps Pak pull Cassie OUT.
Hector: "We're NOT staying here!"
Cassandra Lionheart: "Oh, your asking for it!" *trys to tug back into the inn*
Hector pulls harder. "Cassie, shut the hell UP and let's GO!"
Hector: "Fakir, gimme a hand here."
[OOC] WC GM: Lang: Brogue check if anyone wants to read the inn's name.
Pak siiighs…
Sakha rolled 1d100 and got 76 ( Total: 76 )
Fakir seems to have his hands full - well, one of them - with Ahiru.
[OOC] Sakha: fail by 16 >_>
[OOC] WC GM: Anyone else?
[OOC] ORN: O.O a handful of ahiru eh? wow. in public too
Cassandra_Lionheart struggles to get back in. "I ought to teach you a lesson sir!"
[OOC] ORN: *thumbs up to the duck girl*
Pak thinks…
Pak aha!
Pak whispers to Hector.
Hector: "Cassie, stand the hell down! We're not going to piss off the locals."
Cassandra Lionheart: "I just want to teach him a lesson in economics, Hector!"
Hector grabs Cassie's ass!
Cassandra_Lionheart yelps and turns her head to Hector
Hector takes a couple steps backwards. "Yeah, I did it!"
Pak giggles.
Cassandra Lionheart: "Why I ought too!" *jumps at Hector*
Pak: "That worked. <3"
Hector steps out of the way and starts running for the regular inn.
Sakha shakes her head.
Cassandra_Lionheart lands with a crash on the ground, and holds her head of a second
Felicia coughs.
The innkeeper at the Guillotine Inn shakes his head, but at least does not leave the inn.
Pak hmms.
Pak: "Sakha, think you can find any less lethal deals?"
Cassandra Lionheart: "sorry, guys. But!" *gets a mischivous smile and walks back to the door of the other one and pulls out an ink*
Pak: "…"
Pak: "Nooo x.x"
Hector turns around and does not see Cassie.
Hector: "Oh, crap!"
Pak dammit. That's it.
Pak casts Sleep on Cassie.
[OOC] ORN: ^^; damnit, and I'm gonna miss a fight here? ^^:
Sakha: "I suppose I could try again."
Pak rolled 1d100 and got 18 for a total of 18
[OOC] ORN: … pfft
Cassandra_Lionheart thinks and puts it back…just in time for…
[OOC] Hector: THUD
Pak: "
Pak: "…Almost forgot I had that spell."
Pak drags Cassie away.
Hector sigh of relief.
Sakha rolled 1d100 and got 13 ( Total: 13 )
Cassandra_Lionheart gets dragged, and sighs "What was I thinking?"
Hector looks over at Sakha. "That ass-grab was meant to distract her and get her to chase me back to the regular inn. Then Pak would stand in front of the door and prevent her from trying to get us killed."
[OOC] Cassandra Lionheart: OKAY…
Hector: "I didn't think she'd run back, though. Man, she must've had some kind of vendetta."
Pak reminds himself to cast Sleep more often.
Cassandra_Lionheart gets dragged off, talking in her sleep
Sakha: "Why are you explaining yourself to me?" She hmphs.
Hector: "I just…didn't want you to get the wrong idea."
Hector: "I'm not an irredeemable pervert anymore, I swear."
[OOC] WC GM: What was Sakha's roll for?
Sakha: "Wrong idea? Whatever do yo mean?"
[OOC] ORN: lies!
[OOC] Pak: finding another inn
[OOC] Sakha: trying to find another deal
Hector scratches the back of his head. "I, uh…well.."
[OOC] Sakha: would pass bothe Trade and Brogue :3
Hector sighs. "Nevermind."
The standard rate for inns seems to be about 400 Gil each.
Sakha: "It looks like 250 is the cheapest… for all but ORN…"
Cassandra_Lionheart snores loudly, and rustles in Pak's grip
ORN keeps on assimilating some food up there
Pak: "Hmm."
Pak: "But that place looks stinky."
Pak: "So it's a question of economics."
Pak: "Is a fancier inn worth it?"
Hector: "Well, you know me. Gimme a flat surface, a pillow, and a blanket, and I'm good to go."
Pak: "We DID just come from a comfy sleeping car, though. <3"
[OOC] ORN: 10 000 gil anfd not an ounce of luxury in mind ^^;;;;
[OOC] Hector: 4303. I could use a cheap sleep.
Hector: "How about we vote on it?"
Fakir: "…why are you talking about sleeping? Isn't Gaia here already?"
Pak: "…Oh.":
Pak: "Uh."
Hector: "S'pose so, but I dunno if they'd let us just sit and talk."
Pak: "!"
Pak: "But a restaurant would."
Pak ahas!
Pak: "Yes, that works!"
Hector: "Yeah. And I'm sure that it's a hell of a lot less expensive."
Pak: "Um…"
Pak: "And I can unstone our food! n.n"
Hector: "But would they serve food that we could eat?"
Pak: "…"
Pak: "We could find an Elvan restaurant?"
Fakir's stomach chooses that moment to growl. He looks like he is trying to ignore it.
Sakha: "They didn't seem to like thedwarves much."
Sakha: "Pak, look for an elvaan establishment then."
Pak: "We don't have any dwarves with us though. n.n;"
Pak: "Kay."
Pak rolled 1d100 and got 9 for a total of 9
Pak somehow passes on his pitiful Trade roll!
[OOC] Sakha: Sakha just kindaacknowledgedPak's skills woo
[OOC] Pak: Woo
Pak: "Should we get ORN too?"
[OOC] Sakha: I thought you'd cast sight
[OOC] Pak: n.n;
[OOC] Pak: Well, a crit on trade works too!
[OOC] Pak: Pass by 11
Pak finds an Elvaan restaurant hosting a grand opening! All you can eat, free!
Pak: "Yayyyy~!"
Pak: "This is perfect!"
Pak: "Let's go~!"
Fortunately, many of the Elvaan use Common, as a mutual language between themselves and the dwarves.
The fare is basic - looks like the head chef doesn't know the trade that well yet (which would be why he gives such deals).
But at least it is meat.
Pak rushes in~ nomnomnom
Fakir: "…umm. Ahiru. You still…?"
Ahiru: "Hm?"
Hector: "How disturbingly convenient."
Cassandra_Lionheart continues to Sleep ever though Pak is running ful speed, crashing her into things
Felicia nods in approval, entering the restaurant.
Fakir produces a few green rations for her. "I don't see so much as a single leaf of lettuce here. You never liked meat as a duck; is that still true?"
Pak ohs.
Pak tinks Cassie, waking her up.
Pak: "We found an all-you-can-eat restaurant! n.n"
Ahiru <3's and would waggle her tail looking up at Fakir adoringly.
Cassandra_Lionheart wakes up, and holds her head somemore, mumbling "Good…now can we stop the ringing in my head please?"
Fakir feeds the rations to Ahiru by hand, if she lets him.
Ahiru eats them from Fakir's hand cutely, with great big bites.
[OOC] ORN: kinky
[OOC] Pak: Isn't she a duck?
[OOC] Pak: At the moment
Sakha smiles at Pak and enters the restaurant.
[OOC] Ahiru: not right now
Pak beams at Sakha.
[OOC] Pak: Oh.
[OOC] ORN: think she wasn't at the moment. heheh
[OOC] Pak: …n.n;;
For everyone else - you're not able to quickly identify most of the meat, though there is the occasional chocobo.
But meat it is.
Cassandra_Lionheart gets up, and shakes her head as she enters the restraunt
Pak feasts!
[OOC] WC GM: Imagine a BBQ joint - again, nothing green anywhere.
[OOC] Pak: Bread?
[OOC] WC GM: Nope.
[OOC] Sakha: eeeeeeeeeeeeee Seiei is so cute
There is meat, meat, and fermented meat ale to wash it down.
[OOC] Pak: ?
Pak: "…What…"
[OOC] Sakha: lead character of Gundam 00
Pak: "What is this weird drink?"
Cassandra_Lionheart grabs some of the meat and blinks, continuing to hold her head.
Pak: "It's… it looks like gravy."
ElvaanWaiter: "That's our version of ale, dontchaknow."
Pak: "…"
[OOC] Pak: Canadian Elves?
[OOC] Pak: Gamer elves?
[OOC] Sakha: …
[OOC] WC GM: Gamer
[OOC] Hector: Aboot?
[OOC] ORN: heh
Hector: "Huh."
[OOC] Pak: Or maybe it's just Minnasota
Pak sniffs it.
Pak takes a flagon.
[OOC] Hector: Forget the ))'s.
Felicia is eating meat. So much meat. So sick of bread. Needs more meat.
The ale smells a bit questionable, but it's edible.
Sakha shrugs. "As long as none of it was sentient…"
Pak drinks it.
[OOC] Hector: I could totally make a giggity moment with felicia but I won't.
Cassandra_Lionheart looks at her plate and tries to dig in, but its slow at best
ElvaanWaiter: "Oh? D'ja wan' the loser meat?"
Hector gets two steins or pints of ale and sits down to eat.
Pak: "…Loser meat?"
ElvaanWaiter: "Ya! It's what we got off dudes who wiped out an' got cooked out on the red."
Pak: "…What?"
Sakha blanches.
Cassandra_Lionheart stops eating, and holds her mouth, and rushes into the bathroom
Sakha: "Elves that fell in the magma…"
Pak: "…No, no. We don't want that, thanks."
Pak: "We're fine with this non-loser meat n.n;"
ElvaanWaiter: "Suitcheself. Lawl."
Felicia: "…Quite."
Pak sweatdrops…
Pak: "Felicia, I have no clue what these elves are saying…"
Pak: "Is it even common?"
Sakha: "It's just an unfamiliar dialect."
Pak: "It's really heavy…"
Cassandra_Lionheart comes back out of the bathroom, and is looking pail now, and sits next to ORN.
ElvaanWaiter: "Jus' kiddin', yo! If a dude wipes out, the meat's among the first thing to sizzle off. Even if you COULD get the body before it's all gone, it'd be WAY burnt, yo!"
Pak: "…Ahh…"
Pak: "I-it was a joke! n.n;;;"
ElvaanWaiter: "B'sides, a dude wipes out like that, y'gotta give Pyr 'is share."
Pak: "Sorry, we came through… uh… certain territories where such practices wouldn't be too uncommon. T_T;"
Cassandra_Lionheart looks at the Waiter, and glares at him "Look pal, we just came from a place where Viera ate thier own. That was just in very bad taste!"
Pak: "…"
Felicia: "Im going to have to take it upon myself to learn this dialect when I get the chance…"
Felicia: "…"
Hector: "Christ, Cassie. Stop being so hypersensitive and serious."
Pak: "Cassie, be quieter. We don't wanna ruin their meal."
Hector munchmunchmunch.
ElvaanWaiter: "Viera? Whossat?"
Pak: "It's a bunny person."
Pak: "Our friend there could demonstrate."
Pak points at Ahiru.
The waiter blinks.
Cassandra Lionheart: "Sorry I'm kind of having my um…" *looks at Sakha* "Moment right now."
Hector: "…oh, geez. Don't tell me you're going to run screamign when you see one."
Ahiru blinks and turns into a Viera for demostration and smiles.
Hector: "The rabbit-people did that when they saw those two." *he points to Pak and Sakha*
Pak blushes at Ahiru. >_>
[OOC] ORN: "hawt bunnygirl" reaction, or "GAH!" reaction? hm…
[OOC] Pak: She's still wearing his dead girlfriend's body x.x
Cassandra Lionheart: "No, but I will go back to that Inn, and bust him wide open for what he said earlier!"
[OOC] Ahiru: Actually it's a combination of Fluffy and PAtches.
Cassandra_Lionheart smiles evily at Hector
[OOC] Pak: n.n;
[OOC] Pak: Then my old girlfriend + some tatoos.
The Elvaan blinks again. "…Viera. Huh. I'll remember that."
[OOC] Pak: =p
Ahiru returns to her human form.
Pak resumes eating.
Hector: "You better not."
[OOC] Hector: talking to Cassie
Fakir: "…that was Milf…"
Pak: "Hm?"
Fakir looks at Ahiru.
Pak looks at Fakir.
Pak: "Oh, yeah."
Hector turns to Fakir. "Alright, you owe us some information."
Fakir: "You…absorbed Milf?"
Pak: "Grav has been granting Ahiru the shapes of the avatars of other spirits."
Cassandra_Lionheart looks at Hector "I won't. Just bear with me. I hate my time of the month."
Ahiru blinks and holds up the pendant. "Grav lets me be human and other forms with this."
Fakir: "I…see…"
Hector: "…oh, geez."
Fakir examines the pendant quite closely.
Ahiru: "The spirits are all going crazy, right? So Grav sent us after you to set things right!" She smiles.
Fakir: "I suppose that is better than them doing what they are doing now…but…"
Cassandra Lionheart: "Sorry Hector."
Hector: "There's some indication that what we're doing isn't the right thing."
Hector: "But we haven't been able to come up with any alternatives."
Cassandra Lionheart: "I'll be right back. I have to find ORN." *gets up and walks out of the restraunt*
Fakir sighs. "Indeed. I set out to try to persuade them, convince them they were wrong. Bolt, I had to flee before he fried me. Milf tried to corrupt my body. Gaia…well, as you saw, Gaia took exception as well."
Sakha: "As long as the duck doesn't just give them all up to Grav, I think it should be fine."
Fakir pinches his nose. "Grav's going to be the toughest of all to persuade."
Hector: "…so he's out-of-whack, too? How?"
Ahiru blinks. "But Grav's not crazt."
Felicia: "…"
[OOC] ORN: course he is ^^;
Fakir: "What do you call the moon he brought? This planet only used to have the one moon."
Hector: "Hm. Well, what about the thing that the viera were supposed to warn us about but somehow forgot?"
Ahiru pouts. She found it hard to think badly of Grav, without him, she'd never have found Fakir, never have known anything but being a duck.
Cassandra_Lionheart finds the tunnel he was digging in "ORN!?!?!"
Fakir: "I wish I knew."
ORN: "… ?"
ORN: "Ah. This Unit is a good 2/3 of the way through. Assimilation speed's increased somewhat with practice. Something the matter?"
Cassandra Lionheart: "Hey ORN, we are talking with Fakir now. Want to listen in?"
ORN: "Hm? On what subject?"
Cassandra Lionheart: "Well, the spirits!"
ORN darkens a bit, stands up and nods
ORN: "Where?"
Hector: "This is a very complex situation, and we don't have much to go on."
Cassandra Lionheart: A restraunt. Follow me."
ORN follows
Fakir: "I don't have all the answers either, but I have some."
Hector: "Then share 'em with us."
Cassandra_Lionheart looks back at Orn, and gives a small smile
Sakha: "It does seem that defeating the spirits allows them some merit of sanity back anyway…"
ORN nods and sparkles a bit
Fakir: "That it does. It seems as if, prior to about 100 years ago, the five races of this planet worked in harmony with the eight elemental spirits to bolster their respective lands."
Fakir: "The Mithra on the vast sea. The Moogles with their cloud empire. The Elvaan, ruling over the magma. The Dwarves, in the tunnels underground. And the Hume, weakest of all, sheltered in their plains."
Fakir: "Back then, the belt of mountains above us was not there. The world was not divided as it is today. People could and did freely travel from place to place."
Cassandra_Lionheart returns with ORN, and sits next to it.
ORN nods at the rest
Fakir: "Then came a new star in the heavens. At first people paid it no heed - a star is a star is a star. But it kept growing brighter, and eventually bigger."
ORN: "… Grav"
Fakir: "Grav. And our second moon."
ORN: "The Viera warned us about this."
Fakir: "We had always had gravity, of course, but it was never an elemental force in the same sense as fire, water, or the others. Now it was."
[OOC] Hector: We have to fight the moon? This is FFRPG, not ZELDARPG.
Ahiru: "…"
Fakir: "The races - all except the Hume - banded together to do…SOMETHING. I'm not sure exactly what, but it involved the Volcannon."
[OOC] ORN: … that's what taking the planet over's for *evil grin*
ORN: "They fired it in an attempt to destroy the moon before impact."
ORN: "With obvious results…."
Sakha: "They were gong to shoot the moon out of the sky."
Fakir: "If that is the case…"
Cassandra Lionheart: "So, it didn't happen and it drove the sprits crazy?"
Fakir sighs. "Perhaps the elemental spirits were stressed out by the attempt."
ORN: "Firing did… something, to the spirits… It seems they were more or less willing, but incapable of handling the task."
ORN: "Grav… seems to be using This Group to finish his … task… and them, as the moon appears to be orbiting now."
ORN: "However, without defeating the spirits, they continue their chaos, at the moment."
Hector: "Huh."
Hector eats, deep in thought.
Cassandra_Lionheart listens and thinks
ORN: "Removing their influence may doom this world. Failure to do so dooms this world."
ORN: "A better method of containing them would be needed…"
Pak is eating, not really paying attention
Sakha: "Stop being so gloomy. We do what we have to, let the spirits stew and then we make them see reason, easy."
Cassandra Lionheart: "It maybe to late by then, Sakha."
Fakir: "A better method?" He looks at Ahiru.
Felicia listens intently, contemplating this…
Ahiru looks up. She fidgets.
ORN: "The problem is what happens when this task is complete. Releasing the Spirits is certainly a possibility, but will that be possible at that time?"
ORN: "And will they have recovered, by then. This Unit knows nothing of this amulet."
Fakir pats the back of Ahiru's head, running his fingers through her hair. "Or perhaps we won't have to release them."
Ahiru blinks.
ORN: "?"
[OOC] Ahiru: God is a girl
Cassandra Lionheart: "What do you mean, Fakir?"
Fakir smiles. "Yes. Maybe…it would be tough…but perhaps Ahiru here might just be able to save us all. With your help, of course."
ORN: "… Use bodies to contain the spirits?"
ORN: "… This could also lead to posession as with the previous spirits."
Fakir: "Just the one body. And yes, that is a risk."
Fakir: "Which is why I hesitate to ask."
Ahiru blinks again, not quite understanding.
ORN: "… That could work… however… This Unit also suspected this to be Grav's plan….."
Cassandra Lionheart: "Remember what it did to Sakha?"
Sakha hmphs.
ORN: "Which could prove to be playing directly into its hands."
Hector: "Hm. Think the Volcannon is even the answer?"
Cassandra Lionheart: "Maybe we could all take a spirit? But we have to talk to them about it?"
Hector: "I mean, you'd probably need something even bigger and more powerful if you wanted to get the moon out of the way."
Pak: "But it's done so much devastation…"
Fakir: "No, if the spirits are split then they might fight again."
ORN: "The Volcannon is likely an answer to the moon, if this is still a threat… however using the spirits to power it like last time would result in similar cataclysm."
Cassandra_Lionheart thinks
ORN: "A different source of power?"
Hector: "So we power it with someone even more powerful but more stable?"
Felicia: "…Indeed. Perhaps-Yes, another option?"
ORN: "Wait. You say the spirits fought?"
Fakir: "…where did you think the lava plugs came from?"
Cassandra Lionheart: "I stil think that maybe the sprits can bond with each of us. It would porbably help bolster thier power a bit?"
Pak: "Hm…"
ORN: "Those taste more like a combined effort between Pyr and Gaia than the results of a fight…"
Ahiru thinks.
Fakir: "Theirs was a brief fight, for beings so powerful, though the death toll was countless. Eventually, they divided their territory."
ORN: "Even now those two appear relatively close, however. Please describe the fighting more?"
Fakir: "You've all heard the tale of it. The legend of how the kingdom of Refuge got its name."
ORN: "… still… if 'sealing' them within a body functions, it may be safer than the amulet… and forcing the most bitter to keep eachother safe could prove worthy."
[OOC] Hector: I feel like passing out on my keyboard.
ORN: "The stories made it sound more like it was the races that split. Or did something else convince them?"
Fakir: "The underground races, fleeing from lava and earthquakes? The Mithra, fighting the very sea to arrive? The Moogles, badly damaged from battling the sky itself?"
Fakir: "Tell me, what do you think they were fleeing from?"
Cassandra Lionheart: "The spirits. But they were driven mad by something beforehand. No one knew.
Fakir: "And it all started at about the same time…as if there was a common cause."
ORN: "The individual spirits they worshiped up until the Volcannon blast."
Pak: "Hnn."
ORN: "The same moment, as This Unit understands, the spirits went haywire."
ORN: "The "war" however seems… off, unless these natural disasters were seen as directly clashing upon eachother…"
[OOC] Cassandra Lionheart: brb
ORN: "The earthquakes would have caused the tsunamis… the debris and flame from firing would have affected those living in the sky.. The lava is an obvious result…"
ORN: "This Unit may be wrong, but believes these events were directly related to firing in itself, with berserker spirits also a result. Refuge was formed, but this was not the only set of survivors. The spirits could have hid in their natural sphere of influence, where they are most powerful, having lost their sanity."
ORN: "Speculation, unfortunately, until such time as This Unit can get a word out of Gaia"
[OOC] Cassandra Lionheart: back
Pak: "Wah. o.o"
[OOC] ORN: in other words: "well what do you THINK they were running from. a giant planetary-scale volcano just went off!"
Fakir ponders. "What you say rings of truth."
Cassandra Lionheart: "Well, I say we find Gaia, and get to the volcannon, and talk to it, and see if it will come quietly?"
ORN: "o.o… The Volcannon?"
ORN stares at cassie
Cassandra Lionheart: "Well, Gaia was heading there right?"
Fakir: "…if Gaia hasn't shown up yet, we could set a trap at the Volcannon."
ORN: "… That meal travels through the earth faster than This Group. This Group should also expect an ambush."
Fakir: "Alternately, we could try to get reinforcements."
Hector: "Who? It's not as if anyone likes us."
Sakha: "Reinforcements?"
Cassandra Lionheart: "Unless we as the spirits all ready trapped to help us?"
Sakha: "Are you suggesting we cannot handle it ourselves?"
Fakir: "But they like King." He smiles at Ahiru. "That…WAS Bolt's avatar, right?"
ORN: "The Creators, but that is no longer a possibility. The Viera?"
Cassandra_Lionheart points to the smulet
ORN: "hm…"
Ahiru blinks. "Who likes King?"
Pak: "People in Refuge."
Ahiru scratches her head.
Cassandra Lionheart: "Maybe Hector can take over as Bolt's avatar?"
ORN: "Surface should be reached tomorrow."
Hector facepalms.
Hector: "Cassie, from now on, ALL your opinions are rejected."
[OOC] Ahiru: Yay Bleach
[OOC] Hector: I was waiting to do that.
ORN: "Biggs would shower you with worship and affection."
Cassandra_Lionheart looks at Hector and pouts
Cassandra Lionheart: "I think it would work, Hector."
Hector: "I think you're out of your damn mind."
ORN thinks some more
Hector: "Stop trying to be the brains of this operation, anyway. Orn and Sakha have that covered."
ORN: "Hector is correct."
ORN: "He would make a horrible king."
Pak: "If they're the brains, what's that make me?"
Sakha blushes a little at the compliment.
Hector: "Improvised solutions."
Cassandra_Lionheart growls "Just because I'm younger than you, and a bit sheltered, doesn't mean I can't think, pal!"
Pak: "That's not the reason, Cassie."
Sakha: "You think with your sword, DEAR." She says mockingly.
Hector: "I figure I'm just smart enough to know that I'm not."
[OOC] Sakha: But Sakha thinks with her magic XD
Cassandra_Lionheart looks down after Sakha's comment, and begins to cry
Ahiru pats Cassie.
Felicia sighs.
Cassandra_Lionheart stops crying
Sakha scoffs.
ORN patpats cassie
Cassandra Lionheart: "Well, I think that using the spirits as avatars ourseves would work."
ORN: "Don't worry. This Unit has no brains!"
ORN sparkles brilliantly
Hector: "Hm. Sakha and Orn are the smart ones, Pak's the improvised solution-solver, Ahiru's the specialist, Felicia and I are the battle strategists, and Cassie's the warrior."
[OOC] Sakha: ORN's the scarecrow?
Cassandra_Lionheart sighs, and looks to Hector "sorry for losing it. But consider it for a moment, Hector."
Hector: "I'd rather not, thanks."
Hector finishes up a cheeseburger.
[OOC] Ahiru: this is the point for Ahiru to go offchasing butterflies
Cassandra Lionheart: "Well, if it helps, I'll try it!"
Pak burps.
Pak blushes.
Pak: "This gravy-mead is good. >/‘`/````/`>"
Hector chuckles and pats Pak on the head.
Felicia: "…"
Cassandra Lionheart: "Ahiru? Can I speak with Bolt?"
Ahiru takes off the pendant, changing into a duck and hands it to Cassie.
Cassandra_Lionheart takes the pendant, and tries to channel Bolt
[OOC] WC GM: MAG check
Cassandra Lionheart rolled 1d100 and got 82 for a total of 82
The pendant. It does nothing.
[OOC] ORN: may wanna gf that, that can’t possibly be good ^^:
[OOC] Cassandra Lionheart: I don't have one
[OOC] ORN: oh
[OOC] ORN: oh also.
Cassandra_Lionheart looks at the pendant
Cassandra Lionheart: "Bolt? Can we talk please? Man, I wish I still had my White Magic!"
ORN: "».» sorry"
Cassandra Lionheart: "Don't be sorry, ORN."
Cassandra_Lionheart tries again
ORN will try and help?
Pak nomnomnom
Nothing happens. The pendant completely fails to react.
ORN shrugs
ORN: "Maybe they like Ahiru better."
Cassandra_Lionheart gives up and returns the pendant to Ahiru
Cassandra Lionheart: "I guess so. Tough luck for me."
Ahiru chnages back into a Human and tries to channel Bolt then.
Ahiru rolled 1d100 and got 87 for a total of 87
[OOC] Ahiru: GF?
[OOC] ORN: highwind's HIGH today
Ahiru easily transforms into King. Bolt, however, is not speaking to her yet.
[OOC] WC GM: GF if you want…
Ahiru rolled 1d100 and got 74 ( Total: 74 )
[OOC] Ahiru: poo
ORN: "Perhaps later…"
Ahiru thinks and looks at Fakir, returning to her female form and she starts turning red.
Pak: "Huu."
Pak: "._."
Pak: "So we don't know what to do?"
ORN: "Continue digging. Find the Volcannon. Destroy Gaia's ambush, put Gaia in her proper place, then lay a trap for her or the idiot trio bound to show up."
Cassandra Lionheart: "Sounds good to me then."
ORN: "If the food fights back, discipline"
ORN smashes his fists together
Felicia: "…Is better than no plan at all, I suppose."
Cassandra_Lionheart looks at ORN and blinks
ORN: "In all honesty, violence has generally been the answer so far. The Creators would be proud."
Cassandra Lionheart: "I…guess….so."
[OOC] Ahiru: *imagines ORN as Pinocchio
ORN: "When reasoning with the spirits was attempted, they turned to violence. Fakir can attest to that several times. Defeating them knocked the bright slap of reason into them."
[OOC] Hector: Brightslap fixes everything.
Cassandra Lionheart: "Yeah, but they are not going to talk to us."
Fakir: "…no, it just stopped them from further mischief."
[OOC] Hector: However, blood relatives are immune, because Hathaway got punched and still acted like a dipshit.
ORN: "They regain some sense… the big question is if its both enough AND not temporary… because boy are they nuts before it…"
Cassandra_Lionheart nods
Cassandra Lionheart: "Well, I say we get going then! We need to stop Gaia before it powers the cannon again!"
ORN: "In any case, it does stop them from further mischief, and even if for a brief moment, allows This Group to speak to them."
ORN: "This Unit is worried more about the current sealing method than the act of defeating them."
Cassandra Lionheart: "Yes, true."
Pak: "n.n;"
Fakir: "Then let us be off." He stands up.
Fakir: "Since you're already here, would you happen to know the fastest way to the Volcannon?"
Ahiru is up moments later at his side
Pak: "Sure!"
Cassandra_Lionheart gets up and follows Fakir
Sakha follows behind casually
Fakir nods to Pak. "Then lead the way, please."
ORN nods
Pak: "…Oh."
Pak blinks.
Pak: "Uh…"
Pak: "I think it's on the other side of the city."
Pak looks…
ORN nods
Felicia rises. "Indeed."
ORN: "The Volcannon station is a stop after this one on the train line."
Pak: "I can navigate us through it, but I'll need someone to take my hand so I don't crash.
ORN: "Some Walking will be involved"
ORN picks Pak up and sets him on his shoulder
ORN: "Lead the way."
Pak casts Sight.
[OOC] ORN: pak the automap!
Cassandra_Lionheart nods and follows
The group gets a few odd stares as they walk through the city.
Pak points every now and then.
Cassandra_Lionheart looks at the on lookers and blinks
Soon enough, however, with the heat of the still-active volcano and the orange-red glow suffusing everything, leaving no question that they have arrived at the Volcannon…
…the party finds they are not entirely alone.
