EC Session 3.3

Mid-day, Boltember 1 Pyrday.
You have followed Sakha's trail of hardened magma well into the lava sea. The cave path is still visible behind you; ahead, there is no land.
Hector yawns.
Finally, you hear a familiar motor. The Elvaan is riding back.
Hector: "Huh. Wonder what his deal is."
His hair is done up in a mohawk, which is currently glowing.
Almost as if it was on fire.
ORN: "… It returns…"
Elvaan: "Yo! Hey, you're still alive! Great!"
Hector: "Yeah. So, what's goin' on with you, then?"
He skids his vehicle to a halt, washing a wave of lava over the path behind you. Fortunately, it drains off, though the path looks a little softer.
Cassandra Lionheart: "Hey, we need this bridge to stay intact!"
ORN glares at the machinery
Elvaan: "I felt something this way, so I came to have a look. Guess it was you."
Elvaan: "What's your story? You just tourists, or you looking to raid the dwarf HQ?"
Pak: "We're trying to fix whatever's broken!"
Pak: "…in terms of Gaia, Pyr, etc."
Sakha: "Would you raid the dwarves?"
ORN: "Tourism does not appear to be much of an industry these days. This group has less of a semblance to raiding groups than yourself"
Elvaan: "That right? Well, I've got no dealings with the dwarves, but I wouldn't mind someone giving them a clue."
Sakha: "About…?"
ORN: "? This group is searching for Clues"
Elvaan: "So you won't be needing this."// He powers up his jetbike, jumps it out of the magma, and smashes the bridge behind you, leaving you on a floating rock.
Cassandra Lionheart: "Yeah, why hold a grudge against the dwarves for?"
Cassandra Lionheart: "Why You!"
Pak: "…Wait. Why… what?"
Pak is confused.
Pak: "Why did he do that? x.x"
ORN grabs spear and points
Cassandra Lionheart: "Because he is insane!"
ORN: "You die now"
He pulls out a rope with a hook on the end, twirls it a bit, then latches on to your rock and proceeds to tow it - in roughly the direction you were going before heading into the lava.
Pak: "Eh?"
Cassandra Lionheart: "Or he is giving us a ride. ORN, stand down."
Elvaan: "No thanks. I'd rather live to see you rout them."
Hector scratches the back of his head. "So, what, we're in a race war now?"
The vehicle's motor hums a bit louder. Wakes of lava rise up on either side of you.
Cassandra Lionheart: "It kind of looks that way, Hector. Whether we like it or not."
Pak squeeeaks and hides in the middle of the group.
Hector: "Sakha, set up an ice shield or somethin', please."
Elvaan: "War? Ell Oh Ell, dude! We've left them alone since the Cataclysm!"
Pak: "Then what…? x.x"
Cassandra Lionheart: "They why do you want to rout them for?"
Sakha finds her magic reserves depleted just now, having spent them to create the magma bridge in the first place.
ORN: "Leading us into a trap will ensure your death comes first, non-creator"
Sakha sighs.
Elvaan: "Just because we've left them alone doesn't mean we don't feel pity for them, dudes."
Elvaan: "They got a little TOO into Gaia, if you know what I mean."
Cassandra Lionheart: "Erm, not really, dude!"
Pak: "…"
The Elvaan gives Cassandra a look. "…that sounds really wierd coming out of you, you know?"
Pak: "OH~!!"
Pak: "I get it!"
Cassandra_Lionheart quiets up
Pak: "It's the MAIN group of dwarves!"
Elvaan: "Main group? You mean you found others?"
Pak: "We met this little off-side group that had been cut off from the rest of Dwarven Society for 100 years."
Elvaan: "That'd be about right. The Cataclysm was 100 years ago."
Elvaan: "You don't know how relieved I am to know there're some who escaped. That makes what you're going to do a little easier."
Hector: "But it's still gonna be difficult as all hell, or else you wouldn't need us."
Hector shrugs. "No big deal. I'm used to this sort of thing."
Elvaan: "More like I don't have the heart to. But it won't be easy, yeah. In fact, you look like you need to toughen up a little."
Cassandra Lionheart: "Plus we are here to quell the spirits, not help in some age old war."
ORN: "This unit requires a heavier weapon."
ORN: "… The frame of your vehicle could do…"
Cassandra_Lionheart goes next to ORN and whispers "We can't let the others know, I lost my Magic."
Elvaan: "Sorry, dude! NO ONE touches my ride but ME!"
Hector has half a mind to poke the guy's ride with his toe the moment he gets the chance.
The Elvaan looks at the party. "You! Whip boy! Show me whatcha got. Try slicin' the waves." He gestures to the lava wake on either side.
ORN looks over at cassie
Hector: "Slicing waves?"
ORN: "For what reason?"
Hector attempts to whip the waves in two.
Elvaan: "You don't even know how, do you? But you'll need mad skills like that if you want to free the dwarves from themselves."
Cassandra_Lionheart looks at ORN and whispers "Because they needed me for healing, and now that I don't have it…"
The waves do not react much.
Hector: "Uh…huh."
Pak: "Mad skill…z?"
Hector: "So who's going to teach me these mad skills I desperately need, then, hm?"
Pak: "I want mad skillz too!"
Cassandra Lionheart: "You, good sir?"
Elvaan: "I guess I'll have to."
Elvaan: "First off, your stance is wrong. Spread your feet out - put one foot in front of the other."
Cassandra_Lionheart blinks
ORN: "Perhaps This Unit could aid in weapon handling. Bones are mineral, perhaps detonating layers of self would function, given a larger daily intake of dairy?"
Hector glares at Orn. "Shut it!"
[OOC] ORN: talking to cassie here, not hec
Cassandra_Lionheart looks at ORN and blinks some more "We don't work that way."
Hector positions his feet the way the Elf told him to.
Elvaan: "Then concentrate on your whip and slice it down in an overhand stroke."
Hector: "Concentrate ON the whip? The hell?"
Elvaan: "You're trying to send out some force that goes beyond where the whip cracks."
Hector looks at his whip.
Elvaan: "Think about it, visualize it, then do it, dude!"
Hector thinks about it REALLY HARD, closes his eyes, and then attempts to slice downwards.
The wave splits in twain.
Hector opens one eye. "Did…?"
Pak: "Yeah~! o.o"
Hector opens the other eye. "…holy crap!"
Elvaan: "Hey! You're a natural! Took me ten tries to get that one."
Hector: "Well, I'm certainly no coordinator."
[OOC] WC GM: I think I do.
[OOC] ORN: … that was bad
[OOC] Hector: XD
Hector does the overhand slice a few more times just to get the hang of it.
Elvaan: "Now try doing that next time you see those…ex-dwarves, you'd call 'em."
Hector: "Hm. Guess I will, then."
Cassandra_Lionheart is impressed with Hector's whip skills
Cassandra_Lionheart unsheathes her sword and looks at the Elvaan "Can I try?"
Elvaan: "Remember, it's the break that's important."
Elvaan: "Sure, dude. Go for it."
Cassandra Lionheart: "Dude, I'm a girl, but for now!"
*raises her sword overhead, and sends a wave of force crashing into th magma*
Rather than split cleanly as it did under Hector's ministrations, the wave shatters chaotically.
Pak aaacks~!
Hector whistles.
Elvaan: "…dude! That's, like, both not the way to do it and yet awesome in its own way."
[OOC] Sakha: Coordinator = Gundam Seed?
Hector: "They say women are demons, and I'm inclined to agree."
[OOC] WC GM: Pokemon, I thought.
[OOC] Hector: Yup. And naturals are non-coordinators.
[OOC] Hector: Get it?
ORN stares, still somewhat suspicious
[OOC] WC GM: Ah, okay.
Cassandra_Lionheart blinks, and pulls the Sword over head and swings again, this time sending a bit less force than before
[OOC] Felicia[Dopple]: <3 Gundam Seed.
[OOC] Hector: There's this whole shit in the series about how Coordinators are the best people ever, but they have reproduction issues.
[OOC] Sakha: *finally manages to get thhe courage to TURN OFF THE PS2!
The wave still breaks up into random fragments, though larger ones - not quite as thoroughly shattered.
Cassandra_Lionheart looks and says "I'll have to work on that."
ORN: "?"
ORN stares at cassie
Cassandra Lionheart: "I need to work on my swordsmanship now."
ORN: "How do you avoid firing self when doing that?"
Cassandra_Lionheart spins her blade in her hand, and sheathes the sword
Cassandra Lionheart: "Well, I basically manipulated my chi, ORN. My Sensei taught me that."
*begins to think*
ORN: "Chi?"
Cassandra Lionheart: "Its knid of like magic, but this is a bit more natural….Come to think of it, was it my chi that has."
*stops and looks at everybody and shuts her mouth again*
Hector quirks an eyebrow up, but thinks nothing of it.
Cassandra Lionheart: "Ahem..heh..Nevermind."
ORN: "This Unit simply manipulates self. Detonation of magma probably not a good idea"
Pak: "Yeah. >_>"
Cassandra Lionheart: "Very true, ORN."
Cassandra_Lionheart pats it on its back
Hector: "Well, y'did what ya had ta do."
Elvaan: "Detonating the magma? Where are you FROM, anyway?"
ORN: "Surface."
Sakha: "We're from where everyone ran TO."
Hector practices his whip strikes.
The Elvaan BLINKS.
Pak: "He's a kind of robot statue thing."
[OOC] Hector: Audibly?
Elvaan: "There's still life up there?"
Pak: "Yes?"
Hector: "Why wouldn't there be?"
[OOC] WC GM: Not loud enough to be heard over his vehicle's engine.
Cassandra Lionheart: "Of course there is life up there."
ORN: "Lifeforms are far more common at the surface. Creators, for example."
Elvaan: "Guess the Volcannon wasn't a complete botch after all."
Cassandra Lionheart: "Huh?"
ORN: ".. .. .. This Unit would like to wield such a thing perhaps. How large is it?"
Sakha: "Volcannon?"
Elvaan: "…you know. The Volcannon? That which, when fired, caused the Cataclysm?"
Hector: "Oh. That. Never heard of it. Hell, hadn't heard about any catacylsms 'till I started this fantastic adventure."
Sakha: "We kinda didn't get that much out of history."
Cassandra Lionheart: "Ummm, we didn't know that."
ORN: "Negative. There were some issues regarding a need for breaking through solidified magma earlier however."
Sakha: "It's like everyone that ran away purposefully wanted to forget
ORN: "Which makes this group's duty somewhat more complex"
Elvaan: "You really don't know about the Volcannon? Dude."
Cassandra_Lionheart sighs "That is what we are saying dude!"
Hector: "I didn't exactly take history lessons as a kid. I was too busy trying to SURVIVE."
Pak: "Um…"
Pak: "Did the Volcannon hit the moon?"
Elvaan: "Well, tell you what. Take care of the dwarves, and you'll run into the Volcannon. The base of it."
Pak: "Kay…"
Elvaan: "They were aiming it at the moon. Don't know if it hit."
Pak: "Hn."
Elvaan: "Wasn't our side's job."
Sakha: "Well I did, and most of these things were left out, they only relate the LEGEND."
Cassandra Lionheart: "Maybe it was what caused the Viera to…Man this is now getting complex!"
Elvaan: "The elvaan and dwarves just worked on the base of it. Mithra and moogles were in charge of aiming."
Hector: "Hm."
ORN: "It would appear it failed if the aim was to destroy it"
Sakha: "Why?"
ORN: "There are still two"
Elvaan: "It failed? But the surface still has people?"
Cassandra Lionheart: "Yes."
Elvaan: "Now THAT doesn't make sense."
Cassandra Lionheart: "why?"
Hector: "Come on, the guy's been living underground for ghod knows how long. He's just as out of touch as we are, in a way."
Elvaan: "Think about it! Got a moon crashing into the surface? Boil the seas, crack the earth. I thought for sure the only ones left alive would be down here."
ORN: "No crashing occured, save the Viera ship"
Sakha: "Was that what the Viera game to warn us about…? But what did happen?"
Elvaan: "…this is just eff'ed up, man."
Hector: "I think I need someone to draw me a picture of what's going on, 'cause there's so many words bein' flung about."
Pak: "The moon didn't crash, but…"
Sakha: "…eff'ed…?"
Pak: "…Whenever it gets close to the volcanos, they seem to erupt."
Elvaan: "Eh? Is THAT what's been drawing the magma out?"
Elvaan: "It's so regular, I thought there was some kind of old pump up there."
Pak: "Hm…"
Elvaan: "Anyway! Here we are."
He pulls his jetbike up to an outcropping of land, towing you close enough to jump over.
Hector walks over to the edge of the rock, holding O, and automatically jumps to land.
Cassandra_Lionheart hops off and looks at the Elvaan
ORN jumps off the rock and crashes down next to hector, ready for an ambush
Pak hops up.
Sakha makes a few notes and crawls out of the boat tiredly…
Pak could also hop down, depending.
Cassandra_Lionheart sees Sakha is tired, and hands her 9 tinctures
ORN: "… What is this place?"
Cassandra Lionheart: "I don't know, maybe the Elvaan does?"
Elvaan: "It's the last undefended point before you get close to dwarf HQ."
Sakha: "… thanks…"
Cassandra_Lionheart smiles at Sakha and says "Your very welcome."
Pak: "Kay."
[OOC] Sakha: So do I have 9x15 MP now?
Pak: "Thanks. n.n"
Elvaan: "By the time you get to the Volcannon, you'll have gone halfway 'round the world."
[OOC] Cassandra Lionheart: yes. It is not much, but just in case.
ORN stares at the bike some more and wonders how well he could stab with it
[OOC] WC GM: Yes.
ORN: "heavier weaponry still required…"
Hector: "no kidding."
Cassandra Lionheart: "Yeah, I need some new stuff also."
Hector: "Halfway around the world and the women would still rather jump my brother than me."
Hector sighs. "It's lonely at the top."
The Elvaan looks at ORN. "Bee tee doubuu. Were you serious about wanting to WIELD the Volcannon?"
Cassandra_Lionheart stares at Hector
Hector: "Stop that. Geez."
Cassandra_Lionheart sighs and shakes her head
ORN: "… If it was to be portable enough…"
ORN: "Though further descriptions made that unlikely…"
[OOC] Sakha: Beeteedoubuu? Elvaan check?
[OOC] WC GM: Nope. It's not slang the Elvaan you know of use.
ORN: "What is a Bee Tee Doub you?"
[OOC] Pak: BTW.
The Elvaan laughs. "No kidding it's not portable! Though if you're lucky, maybe you'll get to fire it!"
Pak: "Hnnn."
Elvaan: "Anyway, I'm outta here! Gee ell and gee aitch, dudes!"
He revs his jetbike's engine, then rides away.
Cassandra Lionheart: "Odd, odd, odd Elvaan!"
ORN: "It did not sound like the Creators at all."
Pak: "Oddddd."
Hector: "Man, being underground must've crushed his brain or somethin'."
ORN: "Neither did the glowing head"
Sakha: "And I thought I knew every language…"
Cassandra_Lionheart shakes her head "Why do we get ourselves in the middle of ugly situations!"
ORN: "Because that is where the violence is to be found"
ORN patpats Cassie
Cassandra_Lionheart sighs "Well, I don't mind it."
Cassandra_Lionheart looks away
ORN: "?"
You are on what can only be described as a "shore" - though you have solid rock at your feet instead of sand, and the glowing lava behind you does not look safely swimmable.
A multitude of tunnels lead away - though there is one main one, leading in the direction you had been taken in.
Pak: "So…"
Cassandra Lionheart: "Well, lets go moving ahead. Who knows what we will find."
Pak: "Exactly.
Hector rolled 1d100 and got 8 ( Total: 8 ) **
[OOC] WC GM: Rolling for…?
Sakha: "See? I was right to come this way."
[OOC] Hector: Made a navigation check to see if I can determine cardinal directions based on where we are.
Hector, despite all the confusion, knows almost exactly where the party is.
ORN follows
Cassandra Lionheart: "Yes you were Sakha. Thanks for pointing us in the right direction."
Hector looks up, then to the left and right.
Hector points to what he thinks is West. "Refuge is THAT way."
[OOC] Hector: Forward, kiddies.
Cassandra_Lionheart looks at ORN and is pale white now
Pak: "o.o"
Hector: "By all accounts, we have to walk under Refuge to get to the Volcannon."
ORN: "Is something the matter?"
Cassandra Lionheart: "ah…Heh..Okay."
Ahiru: "But Fakir wouldn't have gone home yet… would he?"
Pak: "I'm not sure…"
ORN pokes cassie
Cassandra_Lionheart whisper to ORN "Well, you drained my White Magic out of me, if my family finds out I lost wat little I had, I have no one anymore!"
Hector: "Y'know, if the Volcannon was aboveground, it'd still be hidden behind the mountains."
Hector: "…near Shaft."
Hector scratches the back of his head. "Why we never noticed such a big weapon growing up is beyond me."
ORN whispers back "You have this group. You could also easily claim that you used your abilities to avoid a rather massive deathcount, and that this has sealed them?"
Cassandra Lionheart: "So, we have to go back home then?"
Hector: "Sort of."
Pak: "Well, it's still probably underneath Refuge.
Pak: "Remember? The Dwarves couldn't dig their way home."
ORN: "If this weapon is simply built into as part of the mountain, it would be difficult to notice"
Cassandra_Lionheart looks at ORn and whispers "They won't buy that. I know them. Iread like a book when I try to lie to them."
Pak: "So it's probably Gaia that's keeping those groups cut off."
Hector: "Remember the crazy old dwarf back home, Pak?"
ORN whispers back "… This Unit is relatively good at lying without having its face 'read'"
Hector: "Said he heard voices talking to him? I don't think he was crazy at all!"
Whispers back to ORN* "Then you talk to them for me."
Pak: "Hm."
[OOC] Aerdan: Yeah, cos Hector hears voices all the time. :P
ORN continues "This Unit could easily claim it is currently leaching power. That should not be difficult to convince."
[OOC] Hector: Well, he's a Newtype. They hear dead people.
[OOC] Hector: That's why he has so much Evade. NEWTYPE HAX.
Cassandra Lionheart: "Yes, but its still banishment for me!"
*said that outloud this time, and clams up*
Hector: "Geez, Cassie! Calm down! Trying to figure somethin' out!"
Pak: "Can't we just follow those tunnels?"
Cassandra Lionheart: "Sorry, Hector."
Hector puts his fingers on his chin and looks pensive. "Alright, then. We'll heard under Refuge towards where the Volcannon should have been."
Hector looks back. "Sakha, if you're feeling really exhausted, tell me and we'll take a break."
Hector starts off down the tunnel.
Sakha: "Mm…?"
she sighs I'm a little better, but…"
Sakha: "Men…"
Cassandra_Lionheart stays next to ORN, and puts her arms around his
ORN: "? ? ?"
ORN patpats cassie
Pak: "…?"
Pak looks at Sakha funny.
Cassandra_Lionheart looks up to ORN and gives a small smile, but her thoughts are now weighting heavy on her
ORN had no idea what half those terms meant but practices by not asking too many questions, and so just nods and keeps walking
As you walk, you begin noticing some oddly-shaped rubble.
This rock looks like a hand, that boulder like a head.
They seem roughly similar to the rock soldiers you fought earlier.
Pak decides the best course of action would be to kick those into the lava.
ORN: "… Targets…"
Cassandra Lionheart: "What…shoot!"
Pak: "Not more of these. x.x"
Sakha: "…"
Pak: "Maybe if we're quiet they won't wake up?"
Pak tries to sneak by.
Hector tiptoes.
[OOC] WC GM: Awareness, all.

[OOC] Cassandra Lionheart: pass by 41
Those who pass notice weapon marks on the debris.
It seems unlikely they will be getting up again soon.
[OOC] Ahiru: can I switch Ahiru and sakha's rolls? Sakha's supposed to be out of it
[OOC] Hector: No combat. no big deal.
ORN: "These appear thoroughly disabled"
Cassandra Lionheart: "Some one fought these all ready!"
ORN seems a little down saying that
Pak: "Hm."
[OOC] WC GM: Ahiru's thinking of Fakir, perhaps?
Cassandra_Lionheart pats ORN on his arm
Pak kicks them into the lava, then.
[OOC] Ahiru: Well.. maybe… lost in her own thoughts… Sakha takes note but dosn't care
Hector: "Well, less trouble for us."
Cassandra Lionheart: "Maybe we will find the Three Stooges ORN!"
ORN: "… That would be enjoyable."
Cassandra_Lionheart giggles and says "Yeah, for us."
Up ahead are a group of 14 stalactites. No…birds formed of rock, their wings pulled around them, shivering. Almost…quaking.
Pak: "Oh yeah, they did run this way, huh?"
Pak: "…?"
Pak: "W…what are those?"
Cassandra Lionheart: "I dunno."
ORN: "… This could be trouble. Charging."
Hector: "Little over a dozen? Goddamn."
Cassandra Lionheart: "Lets try to keep it down. Maybe they won't attack us."
Pak: "They look kind of scared, so maybe…"
ORN: ".. this unit… is not good at quiet…"
Pak: "…Okay, then."

[OOC] Ahiru: fail 9
[OOC] Pak: AGI
[OOC] Cassandra Lionheart: fail by 30
[OOC] ORN: roughly 30 fail here too off default.
Some of the debris Pak was kicking around FINALLY hits the lava - you were a ways away from it - which wakes the birds.
They wake and flutter around in front of you, filling the tunnel.
Pak: "…OKAY"
Hector: "…"
ORN tries monster talk (yeah, like that'll work)
Judging by their faces, the "fight or flight" instinct is kicking in.
[OOC] WC GM: Roll it, ORN.
ORN rolled 1d100 and got 30 ( Total: 30 )
[OOC] ORN: pass by 10?
ORN: "Hello"
[OOC] WC GM: PMing what they say. They're in no mood to listen.
ORN: "Who is back?"
Sakha is walking drowsily, not taking note.
This Group will not Harm you if you do not initiate Combat. Was something a Threat to you earlier?: "
The birds do not appear to be listening to ORN.
Cassandra_Lionheart sees Sakha, and rushes to hold her up
There are, as you see, a "whole bunch" of us, though We do not know of an earlier "one". Please move aside and be unharmed.: "
[OOC] ORN: well, ya know, they're fellow rocks and all ^^;
The birds' chatting gets more intense.
Hector: "…"
Pak: "o.o"
Who is Him?: "
The birds seem to calm down a bit, then CHARGE!

[OOC] WC GM: 180, ARM to all?
[OOC] Cassandra Lionheart: yes
The birds are thwacked, thwipped, and bashed into each other by Cassandra's attack. The rest get the sense that the fight just got significantly easier…
[OOC] WC GM: Ahiru!
[OOC] Pak: Ahiruuuu
Follower? Dead? … Cassie?: //… They've seen your attack before, Cassie.
Pak: "…Huh?"
Pak: "Whaaaat?"
Pak: "WHAT?!~"
Pak: "HOW?"
Cassandra_Lionheart looks at ORN //"How? The only other person who knows this slash is my sensei, and myself!"
Ahiru delays to 1.
ORN focuses, trying to bring his new frame under enough control to fire
ORN: "This Unit is only translating what seemed pertinent"
Cassandra_Lionheart is now looking at the birds and says "How do they know? Have they been…spying on me or something?"
[OOC] Ahiru: damn parents
ORN: "Your attack caused them to scream about being the follower of someone. The same that had them in such fear earlier."
Pak: "…o.o"
Four Axebeaks dive in at Ahiru.

[OOC] WC GM: And Sakha, if you want to RP it.
[OOC] WC GM: Hector: I meant Sakha.
[OOC] Hector: You a-hole.
Ahiru tenses up from all the stress, bending her legs and squatting on the ground and with her arms and fists clenched against her chest. "Grrr, Alright!" She says and jumps up with a spin, feeling energetic and sending gentle ripples of air to her comrades that infuse them with a similar feeling. ~Energetic Breeze~

[OOC] WC GM: Ahiru!
Ahiru uses a High-Potion.
[OOC] WC GM: Sakha!
[OOC] Ahiru: on herself
Sakha smiles cynically at her opponents with one hand on her hips, her eyes however smoulder with cold fire. She puts one hand on her shoulder and turns her back haughtily causing a wave of mystical cold to strike her enemies as she snubs them. ~Cold Shoulder~
Sakha: "Buzz off!"
Sakha rolled 2d6+255,125% and got 3, 6 for a total of 330.0
Hector gets a faceful of frost and blinks.
Noo! She attacks with the environment too!: " …are their final words, as they shatter.
Only Ahiru and ORN understand them, though.
[OOC] Sakha: Pak has Monster talk too, doesn't he?
[OOC] WC GM: Pak can roll to see if he understands it, then.
[OOC] WC GM: Unless that was the Lang: Monster that turned out to be Lang: Ancient?
Hector wipes the frost off his face and then walks over to Ahiru, who looks pretty slammed.
Cassandra_Lionheart sheathes her sword, and breathes a bit heavily, her wounds showing up on her arms
[OOC] Pak: That was the Lang: Monster and Lang: Ancient.
[OOC] Ahiru: Wait a minute… *forgot about SOS-Fury*
Hector: "Y'took a nasty few hits there. Are you doing alright now?"
[OOC] WC GM: Ahiru attacked instead of Hi-Potioned, then?
[OOC] Ahiru: Yeah… As a duck…
[OOC] WC GM: And is still attacking the rubble?
Hector notices Ahiru is now a duck." //
Ahiru is in duck form and viciously atacking pebbles.
Pak grabs a High-pot off Ahiru and dumps it on her.
[OOC] Pak: There, fixed. n.n;
Cassandra Lionheart: "Why were they talking about my great cleave attack like that for?"
Ahiru turns back into human and sways
ORN blinks
Hector hands Ahiru another High Potion.
ORN: "Huh??"
Hector: "Here. You took a hell of a hit."
Ahiru: "Why'd they have to be so meeeeeeean?"
ORN: "… … It would appear they consider this group to be Fakir's Followers and Duck."
Ahiru takes the potion and drinks
Pak: "So we're getting close? <3"
Cassandra Lionheart: "but it doesn't explain how they saw our attacks before, unless they saw us use them, or saw someone else use them!"
Ahiru: "Who was HER though?"
ORN: "Not ours, but likely one like it."
ORN: "Unsure… They appeared to be afraid of multiple Hers"
Cassandra Lionheart: "Sahka, Ahiru and Myself.."
[OOC] WC GM: 4644 XP and 1692 Gil each.
ORN: "Manipulating the environment, a duck, and Cassie."
Cassandra Lionheart: "We each did a move and they got scared!"
Sakha: "Why would anyone be afraid of you?"
She asks the bespeckacled warrior.
ORN: "… … … Was Fakir formed through the combination of various females?"
Pak: "…E-eh?"
Felicia: "…"
Cassandra_Lionheart blushes and just stares at Sakha, and looks like she is on the verge of tears all of a sudden
[OOC] WC GM: "By your girls combined, I am Captain Fakir"? :P
Hector: "It's entirely possible Cassie's teacher was here at one point."
[OOC] ORN: bespectacled??
Cassandra Lionheart: "I can be feared Sahka!"
Hector: "It's not like she ever knew what they were doing before coming to Shaft."
[OOC] ORN: WC: something like that. though I was thinking more "I'll form, THE CHEST!"
[OOC] Hector: Inevitable Sanger joke.
WC GM rolled 14d100 and got 13, 73, 45, 80, 18, 80, 35, 11, 50, 29, 93, 100, 93, 89 for a total of 809**
Hector is always baffled as to how monsters can have gold when they die.
Cassandra_Lionheart straighten out her armor, fixes her glasses and stares a hole into Sahka
For these monsters, it is at least less baffling: gold runs in their veins - literally.
Ahiru thinks they eat it
Hector: "Huh. Wonder if these guys were ever hunted for their blood."
Hector scratches his chin.
What IS baffling, is how any parts of them can be edible - yet some are. Enough to justify a lunch break.
Pak thinks it's actually just a convenient way of selling their pelts and so on…
Pak: "…Food?"
Pak 's stomach rumbles.
[OOC] ORN: of course its not baffling. they're rock. its delicious.
[OOC] WC GM: Food being the drops.
[OOC] Hector: It is delicious rock, you must eat it.
ORN: "Food indeed"
ORN goes over and grabs a corpse
Felicia: "Seems to be the case."
Pak tries eating some- after cooking it over the lava.
Cassandra_Lionheart sits down and sighs and begins to chug a Hi-Potion down
Hector takes a pensive bite.
ORN shakes a dead one down to make sure there's nothing else in it and assimilates
Ahiru: "I wonder what that was about commanding elements…?"
Cassandra Lionheart: "What if my sensei came down this tube. Would he be travelling with Fakir?"
The texture is a bit sandy, but the smoky flavor more than makes up for that.
Ahiru: "We'd have heard, wouldn't we?"
ORN: "Perhaps he knew a similar move. They seemed rather panicky, memories may have been inaccurate."
Cassandra_Lionheart looks at Ahiru "You never know. He may have not come alone."
Cassandra_Lionheart looks to ORN "I can't stress it though…only my sensei and I know that move."
Pak: "Are you sure your Sensei wasn't Fakir? n.n;"
Hector: "Wouldn't that be a weird coincidence!"
Hector munchmunchmunch
Ahiru: "Fakir can't be older than Felicia…"
ORN: "That is why This Unit says they mayh not have been exact. Translation errors were unlikely, but anything with much light and a sword could have been "
the same" to them?"
Felicia sits, eating some of the spoils. "Indeed. Who was this sensei of yours?"
Hector: "Or so ya think, Ahiru."
Cassandra Lionheart: "Honestly, I never asked his name. I was 12, and didn't ask to be his student. He saw me one day swinging the sword, and he taught me everything I knew until I left town."
ORN: "Besides, when choosing travelling companions… … Would women not be preferable?"
Ahiru: "He's not as old as King!"
Felicia: "…And Im not *that* old."
Cassandra_Lionheart thinks for a bit and looks at Ahiru "Can you give me a description of him?"
ORN: "Old?"
ORN: "… Head creators always got angry when this was mentioned around them…"
Ahiru: "Longish black hair in a ponytail, serious eyes and a smooth stern face."
Cassandra_Lionheart thinks for a minute…and sighs "He away wore a long brimmed hat with him! I could not get a go look at his face. He all ways wanted to face away from him."
Ahiru: "Why is it called a PONY tail?"
Cassandra Lionheart: "I don't know. The way the hair looks afterwards?"
Pak: "Hat…"
Cassandra_Lionheart nods, and makes a circular motion around her face, just coving her eyes
Cassandra Lionheart: "That was how big it was."
ORN: " ? ? ? "
ORN has no idea what a pony is or what its tail looks like
Pak: "Hm."
Pak: "Didn't someone we know ride a pony?"
Cassandra_Lionheart looks at ORN, and smiles. She gathers her hair into a neat bunch and uses a tie from the cute armor to put in her hair. "This is a ponytail, ORN."
ORN: "… Ah."
ORN pictures a female head with a tail like that bouncing down the road
Sakha: "Suits you, horsey."
ORN nods and understands now.
Hector can't help but chuckle a bit at what Sakha said.
Cassandra_Lionheart looks at Sakha and glares "What did I do to you?"
Sakha shrugs
Felicia chuckles to herself.
Cassandra_Lionheart is steaming and begins to chant for the Aero spell….somewhat hoping she doesn't have to "use" it.
ORN: "… ^^; …"
Cassandra_Lionheart finishes chanting…and thrusts her hands out in front of her…with no spell coming out
ORN: "This Unit suggests continuing…."
ORN: ". ."
Hector: "…?"
Cassandra_Lionheart blinks and gets up, and just calmly walks away
Hector shrugs and goes back to eating.
Pak: "Pyon…"
Pak: "So how much farther until we make it to Dwarfland?"
[OOC] Hector: going afk for a bit; bathroom
Cassandra_Lionheart looks for a place to sit alone, away from the group and sighs whispering "It is all gone I guess."
ORN goes over and sits next to cassie
ORN: "?"
Cassandra_Lionheart looks to ORN, and shakes her head "Well, why don't I just blow up next time, and slice her head off." *wipes a tear away*
ORN: "It would appear she was doing the blowing up."
Cassandra Lionheart: "Yeah, but now…everybody knows. I will not be wanted in the group now."
Cassandra_Lionheart just sobs in her arms now
ORN: "… Why not simply continue to damage things with that… chee?"
Cassandra_Lionheart looks at ORN and sighs "True, but I was wanted from being the White Mage. Now I can't even do that."
ORN: "The others appear to do the healing most of the time"
ORN: "Perhaps destruction is a better use of your talents."
ORN: "Most enjoyable."
Cassandra Lionheart: "I know. But was there to be back up to them, in case one falls, and now. I can't do that."
ORN: "Although This Unit is unsure why white magic was not used for such purposes by yourself… lightning blasts appear relatively useful."
Cassandra_Lionheart looks at ORN "I use my sword for peace. I guess that should suffice for now."
ORN: "This Unit uses a lance for similar purposes. Peace of mind through fun-time. ^^"
Pak munches a piece of axebeak.
Pak: "Mmph."
Cassandra_Lionheart looks at ORN and laughs "Okay, but I guess I got some explaining to do, eh?"
Pak: "We need to go already. x.x"
Pak: "I'm full."
Cassandra_Lionheart gets up and hugs ORN,
ORN: "Perhaps. Simply destroy things like you did with magma. It is likely theraputic, like the beating of the idiot trio."
ORN: "If your family proves hostile, This Unit will aid in their elimination."
Cassandra Lionheart: "Right."
*smiles* "let us go back to the others."
ORN nods and gets up
Cassandra Lionheart: "No…don't kill my family, ORN."
Hector brushes himself off and stands.
Cassandra Lionheart: "I will deal with then when the time comes."
Cassandra_Lionheart walks back to the others, and looks at Sakha "I'm sorry. I took what you said to literally. I shouldn't have lashed out at you."
Sakha: "So sensitive…"
Cassandra Lionheart: "Well, I have a reason. I lost my Magic…All of it."
Pak agrees with Sakha.
Pak: "…"
Pak: "Kay."
Pak: "It wasn't too strong, anyway."
Pak: "So don't worry about it. n.n"
Hector isn't touching this conversation with a ten-foot whip.
ORN: "
Cassandra Lionheart: "Um..s.."
*looks at Pak* "Your right, I'll admit it. I paid more attention to swordplay, than to my magic. I have no regrets for that."
[OOC] Hector: Are we wrapping soon?
Cassandra Lionheart: "For now, I have to move on, and I'll deal with my family when the time comes."
ORN: "This Unit fails to understand why your family did not put its magic to more effective ends, however."
Pak: "Um.."
[OOC] WC GM: Yeah. Once this conversation comes to a break point.
Hector: "Humans are weird, Orn. That's about all there is to it."
Pak: "Cassie, didn't you leave your family because they wanted you to be a white mage anyway?"
Pak: "And you didn't want to?""
ORN: "Ah?"
Pak: "So why are you upset? x.x"
Sakha: "… Does this mean I should pay more attention to my whit magic studies…? What a pain…"
ORN: "If that's the case, then you have nothing to worry about. They did not throw you out, you threw them out ^^"
Cassandra Lionheart: "Yes. But I thought I could help everybody here with what I had. I guess not."
Hector: "Think of it this way, Sakha…"
Hector: "You'll be thanked a hell of a lot more often."
Cassandra_Lionheart nods with Hector
Pak: "We do need more magic, but I'd rather get a dedicated source. n.n;"
Cassandra Lionheart: "And I can still teach. Just not apply it myself."
Pak: "You just hit things with your sword, okay?"
Sakha: "Who needs thanks?"
She blushes a bit.
Cassandra_Lionheart smiles and nods
Hector chuckles.
ORN: "You did help with what you had. You just were using what you were less effective with. This Unit will aid in destructive methodology most happily. Perhaps a larger weapon is in order…"
Cassandra Lionheart: "Yes. We need new weapons!"
ORN Nods enthusiastically
ORN: "ALWAYS new weapons!"
Cassandra Lionheart: "I think I bent my sword over one of those things, during the slash."
ORN: "Now let us go find a large volcano cannon and use it on unsuspecting chocobo riders!"
Cassandra Lionheart: "Ermmm, NO ORN!"
ORN: "… Suspecting chocobo riders?"
Hector wonders if there was a way he could mount a smaller version of the Volcannon on Trombe.
[OOC] Hector: Trombe needs lawnchairs.
[OOC] Hector: Specificially, a rawket and a gratification.
[OOC] Cassandra Lionheart: heh
Pak: "Hm."
Pak: "Kay."
Pak: "Let's goooo already x.x"
Cassandra Lionheart: "I agree with Pak."
Hector starts out. "Onward!"
ORN: "Pak Agrees! The idiot Trio will suffer at the hands of Magma!"
ORN starts off, damn near prancing towards the caves//
