EC Session 3.6

Mid-day, Boltember 1 Gravday.
There is one way forward. Wedge just went down it, shouting for Biggs. You hear nothing else from that direction, for now. What do you do?
Cassandra_Lionheart looks and runs after him
Pak: "We're not letting them get away again! >_<"
Hector follows. "Right, guys. Drink what you need to get yourselves back on your feet, and let's get moving."
Cassandra Lionheart: "Right, so move it!"
ORN nods and grabs spear
Felicia nods, holding onto her sword as she goes after.
ORN: "This interruption was minimally needed. Greater violence on their persons is required!"
ORN heads off after cassie
[OOC] Pak: If I remember correctly I didn't take any damage… or I recovered it
[OOC] Cassandra Lionheart: brb
[OOC] WC GM: This is why I asked you to record. But I think you're right.
[OOC] WC GM: Awareness, all.
[OOC] ORN: saved with current, no problem here

[OOC] Hector: (I passed by…57.
[OOC] Pak: 22/86
You all easily hear it. Chrring, coming from ahead.
Pak: "…Dammit."
[OOC] Ahiru: 44/60
[OOC] Sakha: 14/30
Hector: "We just GOT HERE. Shouldn't those things be popping up later?"
Sakha's coat of fuzz stands on end in irritation.
Cassandra Lionheart: "What the heck?!?"
Pak: ">_>"
Pak gets an alarm clock ready.
Cassandra Lionheart: "It is a wonder how they are here at all, Hector. You would think they would burn up by now."
[OOC] Sakha: WC WC
[OOC] WC GM: Yes yes?
[OOC] WC GM: Thought there'd be more. Moving on…
[OOC] Sakha: aka bathroom
[OOC] Hector: She asks you a question, you say No, she says "Nyoro~n"
[OOC] WC GM: Nah, not bathroom. Was just waiting.
Finally, you emerge from the tunnel, coming out at the wreckage of a village.
At least, some of the rock pieces look like they might have been walls and doors. There is the occasional arm or leg shaped rock, as well, completely detached from anything that could have been its body.
ORN: "…"
ORN darkens a bit
Hector: "…whoa."
Here and there, you see an occasional mow - the red ones and the cyan ones from Vieraland.
Cassandra Lionheart: "What in the world. They could not have done this, could they have?"
Hector: "I wouldn't be surprised."
Ahiru: "Ants can do something similar."
ORN: "…. They could have brought those things with them…."
Pak: "Hnn…"
Cassandra Lionheart: "Very true. I guess we should proceed with caution."
Cassandra_Lionheart walks into town a bit more, trying to be quiet.
Hector checks the wreckage for survivors and/or treasure.
Pak looks about carefully… where are those 3?
ORN: "… Likely running around after, or in front of those…"
Up ahead is Biggs, giving Wedge a bit of a scolding.
Cassandra_Lionheart stops and hides to the side of a building, if there is one.
It is hard to make out exactly what they are saying, but the word "TARTS" comes through loud and clear.
Hector returns to Pak, his search fruitless.
ORN: "…"
ORN looks over at cassie and hector
ORN: "shall we?"
ORN kneels
Cassandra Lionheart: "Let us try to be queit this time ORN. Let us get some info first."
Cassandra_Lionheart tries to get closer to them, with out being noticed.
Pak hmms…
Pak switches to his Ninja Suit.
ORN nods and waits, not being very good on the quiet front
[OOC] WC GM: Stealth check to get closer
Felicia positions herself out of sight, watching over the other two. She wasn't the sneaking type.
Pak rolled 1d100 and got 88 for a total of 88
Cassandra Lionheart rolled 1d100 and got 75 for a total of 75
ORN stays kneeling, ready to jump
Hector rolled 1d100 and got 69 ( Total: 69 )
[OOC] Hector: phaild
[OOC] Cassandra Lionheart: Well, I failed anyways. ><
[OOC] Pak: 88/60. n.n;
The mows CHRRR! Biggs and Wedge snap to attention. Looks like You Have Been Spotted.
Cassandra_Lionheart nods er head "Stop right there you two!"
ORN: "(to self)… if those things are no longer Milf controlled, then where…"
Biggs: "You go ahead. Hicks has probably found that big golem Gaia told us about by now."
Wedge: "…have I ever told you, you give too much away?"
Cassandra_Lionheart blinks and sighs
Hector laughs.
Biggs blinks. "No, why?"
Felicia grumbles, drawing her blade as she steps out from her spot. "Always was a problem of yours."
Wedge sighs. "Nothing." He prods his mount and trots off.
Pak: "Big Golem?"
ORN: "you seem on rather friendly term with the berserk spirits"
Biggs shrugs. "Something about wanting to meet us in person, and a common enemy. The message wasn't too clear."
ORN: "Explain. They seem afraid of something."
Biggs: "Hey, if they help us defeat King's murderers, we're all for it!"
ORN points at Ahiru
ORN: "King still functions."
Ahiru blinks and smiles.
Cassandra_Lionheart looks at Biggs "You knew he wasn't really the King right?"
Biggs: "Yeah, right. Milf told us about Grav's pawn, when she brought us back."
ORN: "… This Unit has been wondering about Grav's Pawns, actually…."
ORN: "It is obvious This Unit is not being told everything…"
Biggs: "And he was the King! Even if he shared his soul with Bolt, he was still the rightful ruler of Refuge."
Cassandra Lionheart: "Are you sure your not being used yourself?"
ORN: "Both sides seem to be, Cassie"
Biggs: "…enough! Mows, GET THEM!"
Hector shrugs. "S'pose we're just acting out our roles. Ah, well. I like mine. I get to kick the ass of chumpy shitheads like you."

[OOC] ORN: ? where'd she go?
[OOC] ORN: most of us chugged a potion or two but that's it
[OOC] WC GM: Err? She didn't drink a Potion or anything?
[OOC] Sakha: I didn't no
[OOC] Hector: Epic facepalm.
[OOC] WC GM: Someone might want to PD her…
[OOC] ORN: hm

The cyan mows crumble. The red mows are not looking too hot…
[OOC] WC GM: Ahiru!
[OOC] Hector: Crumble meaning every cyan mow = deader than dead?
[OOC] WC GM: Pretty much.
[OOC] Hector: Well, that's 15 loads off our back.
[OOC] ORN: I did nearly double my output with that new lance there after armor ^^:
Ahiru waits until 14
[OOC] Cassandra Lionheart: nice
[OOC] Hector: …Hi-Ru Gundam. *kills self*
[OOC] Hector: A Hi-Ru Gundam, even. Groan.
[OOC] WC GM: With the cyan mows dead…Hector!

Cassandra_Lionheart looks at Biggs and smiles
[OOC] Hector: you guys lose your Assault bonus.
[OOC] Cassandra Lionheart: how??

[OOC] WC GM: Felicia!
Cassandra_Lionheart blinks at them also
[OOC] ORN: didn't you not fall asleep? if you did sure we'd lose it, but otherwise its still running
[OOC] Hector: Interesting.
You also notice that Night had no effect on Biggs, almost as if she had specifically protected herself from it.
Felicia sheathes her blade with a smirk, turning away from Biggs. In a blur of steel, she rushes past her, a flurry of slashes etching into her.
[OOC] Felicia: Limit, cuz I can :p
Felicia rolled 2d10+153,200% and got 9, 8 for a total of 340.0

[OOC] Hector: We fucking need Esuna.
[OOC] Cassandra Lionheart: for?
[OOC] Hector: Healing ailments. WHAT ELSE WOULD WE USE IT FOR?!
[OOC] Cassandra Lionheart: Well, not right now right? Geeze.
[OOC] Felicia: First off, that's like a level 6 thing
[OOC] Felicia: Second off, your agility break still works because its not an attack action
[OOC] Hector: it does?
[OOC] WC GM: Pak?
[OOC] WC GM: Yes.
[OOC] Pak: Oh, sorry x.x)O)
[OOC] WC GM: You're still going off on 9.
[OOC] Hector: Well, fuck.
Pak uses a PD on Sakha!
[OOC] ORN: ….. ^^;;;;;;;
[OOC] Felicia: So do all your other knight abilities :P you're not a fighter, you're FINE.
[OOC] WC GM: All that Disable does is stop your basic attack actions. It's not as uberpwn as you think it is.
[OOC] Felicia: Now on me, it sucks balls
[OOC] Felicia: but thats why I have Disable Proof >_>
[OOC] WC GM: And with that, Hector! Target?
[OOC] Hector: I'm just thinking this is like FF12.
[OOC] Hector: Biggs!
Hector rolled 1d100 and got 14 ( Total: 14 )
[OOC] Hector: That was the chance for the Agility Break to work.
[OOC] Hector: 91-Eva

[OOC] Sakha: I'll feel less like I'm wasting it
[OOC] ORN: too bad it doesn't qualify as unaware, else that would be very dead mows ^^;;;
[OOC] Hector: If it's asleep, it can't hit us.
[OOC] Hector: Therefore, I'm okay with it.
[OOC] ORN: probably dead anyways
[OOC] ORN: yeah, its all good
[OOC] WC GM: The 2-1? Yeah, this would be a cinematically appropriate time - even if technically you wouldn't have it until after the battle.
WC GM: Battle order: Ahiru:24 Sakha:19 Cassandra:18 RedMowABC:17 RedMowMNO:17 ORN:16 RedMowDEF:16 Hector:15 RedMowGHI:13 Felicia:12 RedMowJKL:12 Pak:9 Biggs:9

[OOC] WC GM: hit
Ahiru rolled 2d8+36 and got 2, 5 for a total of 43
[OOC] Pak: Sakha's at 1 HP…
Ahiru's attack tinks off of Biggs' armor.
[OOC] WC GM: Sakha!
[OOC] Ahiru: Forgot about that…
Sakha growls in frustration!
Sakha composes herself, the magical energy building around her. She taps her nose three times and the energy shoots to the sky, summoning dark clouds that blot out the sun. It however does not rain, but shower millions of tiny ice needles that slip through the cracks of armor and convey their mistress' pain to her enemies. ~Rain of Needles~
The lack of rain underground is somehow not that surprising.
The clouds, however, are.
Hector whistles.
Sakha rolled 3d8+358,175% and got 6, 1, 7 for a total of 651.0
Cassandra Lionheart: "Holy.."
[OOC] Sakha: Piercing
Pak wah…
Pak: "T…that was amazing…"
When the clouds part, Biggs is nowhere to be seen. The mows are, of course, very very Dead.
ORN: "… Pretty. Will Sakha be warmer now?"
Cassandra Lionheart: "Aw, she got away…again."
Hector feels his Disabling fall off of him, and his muscles relax.
Hector: "…shit. Hey! If any of you can cast a healing spell, toss as many of 'em at Sakha as possible!"
Cassandra_Lionheart gives Sakha a Hi-Potion
WC GM rolled 30d100 and got 22, 43, 84, 3, 73, 55, 68, 54, 13, 76, 44, 98, 75, 69, 5, 4, 26, 3, 87, 39, 41, 25, 88, 93, 1, 36, 15, 78, 69, 6 ( Total: 1393 )
[OOC] ORN: oooh, a few nice ones in there
The fighting uncovered 3 Potions and 6 Hi-Potions among the rubble.
WC GM rolled 1d100 and got 34 ( Total: 34 )
ORN takes one Hi
Cassandra_Lionheart take a Hi for replacement
Hector takes two Hi Pots and tosses one to Sakha.
A seventh Hi-Potion is on the ground near where Biggs was. Perhaps she dropped it.
[OOC] Hector: Three Hi Pots left.
Pak restores his own HP casually with a Cure.
ORN pours one of the regulars on himself to top off
Cassandra Lionheart: "Sakha, you all right?"
Sakha still has a crazy glint in her eyes.
Hector: "Pak, lay one o'them heal spells on me, wouldja?"
Cassandra_Lionheart backs off her a bit
ORN: "Is something wrong?"
Ahiru recuperates Sakja
Pak tosses Hector a Cure.
Ahiru rolled 1d8+33 and got 2 for a total of 35
[OOC] Ahiru: and again
Ahiru rolled 1d8+33 and got 1 for a total of 34
Sakha shakes her head and sighs… "That's a load off…"
Hector is holding a Hi-Pot out to Sakha.
Hector: "One more for the road?"
ORN: "Shall we Continue? They have escaped again and mentioned a large Golem"
Pak smells the air. "It's not as cold around Sakha anymore. It must have been quite a relief…"
Sakha: "I'm good,thanks."
[OOC] Hector: Two recuperates and she says "I'm okay?"
Cassandra Lionheart: "Yes, we need to chase them."
[OOC] Pak: Didn't she get 1 Hi-pot?
[OOC] Hector: I tossed her one but she didn't use it.
[OOC] Hector: So I tried instead holding it out to her to see if she'd actually drink it.
[OOC] Pak: Cassie used one too.
[OOC] Hector: Hm. 'kay.
[OOC] Hector: One more for me, then.
[OOC] Sakha: I missed Cassie's Hi-Pot, 2 recuperats+HiPot =195/212
[OOC] Hector: brb toilet
Cassandra_Lionheart gives Sakha a Tonic to wash down the potions
Sakha looks at it, then brings out one of her own and drinks that
Cassandra Lionheart: "I didn't know. But, anyway I can help, is better than not helping at all."
[OOC] Hector: I took Bigg's hi-pot
Pak: "So I guess she ran off too x.x"
ORN nods
Pak: "Hnn."
ORN: "We should follow"
Sakha stretches.
ORN: "They generally stand in the way of where This Group was required anyways."
Hector: "Everyone's okay? Nobody's half-cocked or running on fumes?"
Cassandra_Lionheart stops wasting time, and follows to where Biggs left.
ORN shakes head and points at the carnage
Hector nods.
Cassandra Lionheart: "I'm fine!"
ORN follows after cassie
Hector: "Hm." He starts off.
Pak: "I'm fine~"
Sakha has a soft-contented smile and a dreamy look, all of that stress must have been something to leave her so mellow…
You find more rubble - this looks far too thorough to have been the trio's work.
Pak: "But it looks like there's a giant golem or something and that's Gaia's real form."
Pak: "Or whatever"
Pak looks at the rubble.
Cassandra Lionheart: "Yeah."
[OOC] WC GM: Awareness, Pak.
Pak rolled 1d100 and got 74 for a total of 74
ORN: "Likely more a guardian of some form, or weapon for them to use, like the Mows"
[OOC] Pak: Pass by…
[OOC] Pak: 12
Hector: "Hm."
Cassandra Lionheart: "I think the Mows are a hinderance."
Pak blinks!
Pak: "Hey!"
Hector: "They usually seem associated with whatever the spirit is."
Pak: "These stones…"
Hector: "These seemed like Milf Mows."
Pak: "They're all marked up."
Pak: "By sword marks. A rapier?"
Cassandra_Lionheart hears Pak, and looks at them.
Pak: "The trio doesn't use sword-"
Pak: "OH!"
Pak: "We must be close! o.o!"
Hector quirks an eyebrow.
ORN: "Hm"
Cassandra Lionheart: "Close?"
Pak turns! "Someone else is down here!"
Ahiru: "Rapier?"
Pak: "Remember? It's Ahiru's friend!"
Cassandra Lionheart: "Oh.."
Pak: "Maybe he's the person who's…!"
Hector: "Well, let's hope we get to him 'fore Dumb, Dumber, and Dumbest do."
Ahiru is all excited
ORN nods
Cassandra_Lionheart nods with Hector
Pak: "Okay, let's follow his trail!"
Pak: "Can anyone track?"
Ahiru races off first, following the swordmarks.
Hector: "Guess so…" He follows Ahiru.
[OOC] Ahiru: Tracking roll?
Ahiru has no problem finding the trail of destruction.
Cassandra_Lionheart follows Ahiru
[OOC] WC GM: Sure, at +100.
Pak follows Ahiru!
[OOC] Hector: lolz and lulz
Ahiru rolled 1d100 and got 92 ( Total: 92 )
The only way this could be easier to follow, would be if the trail itself pulled you along.
[OOC] Ahiru: >_>
ORN: "… There is much to learn from that cause ^^"
Cassandra Lionheart: "Yes, but we have to find this guy first."
Pak dashes along after Ahiru~
Cassandra_Lionheart is following along
ORN following of course
The trail soon leads to a giant head.
By the swordmarks, it is easy to guess this head used to be part of something else.
Pak: "Ooh…"
Beyond it, a giant arm…another giant arm…pieces of a pair of giant legs…
Hector whistles.
Ahiru: "Fakir~!" she calls
Hector: "I could learn a thing or two from him."
Cassandra Lionheart: "Wow..I think..Wow."
ORN: "… That would have been an enjoyable battle…"
From up ahead…
Hicks: "Aack! They've caught up already!"
Biggs: "Gaia's up ahead."
Cassandra Lionheart: "Hicks..just give up!"
Hicks: "Further? But that thing we passed…"
Pak: "How big is this golem? >_<;"
Wedge: "…USED TO be Gaia."
Cassandra Lionheart: "What? Gaia, is…?"
Hector: "Huh."
ORN: "having little difficulty in simply taking over more dirt, as opposed to lifeforms?"
Cassandra Lionheart: "Well…what to do?"
Ahiru: "Of course Gaia can't be defeated, the only way to prevent her coming back is the pendant."
Cassandra_Lionheart eyes Ahiru wearily now
Hector: "I don't think it's this esay. There has to be something deeper."
Wedge: "We can HEAR you, you know!"
Hector: "The feeling's mutual."
Cassandra Lionheart: "Good for you."
ORN: "That is not an Issue. This Group hears you often. However, The sharing of information may prove beneficial, despite the guaranteed amusement your destruction would once again provide otherwise…"
Pak: "…Okay, let's just slow down a second."
From the general direction, it seems they are following the same path you are, even if you can not see them.
Pak: "Look, as much as we'd like to kill you guys again, it… doesn't seem to take."
Pak: "You're trying to figure out what's going on as much as we are, aren't you?"
Cassandra Lionheart: "oky, you three. Let us talk."
Biggs: "Thank Milf for our ressurection."
ORN: "And you seem to know something about the current events that we do not. Every time. This Unit does not enjoy Pawn status…"
ORN: "… This Unit did, though it may be getting a little old by now"
Cassandra Lionheart: "Yeah, indulge us, please."
Hector crosses his arms and thinks.
ORN quietly mutters to himself that a new form of slaughtering them would spice things up… yeah…
Hector: "I gotta say, now that Milf's back to normal, think she's gonna revive you twats after we rip you apart?"
ORN: "… Perhaps…"
Wedge: "Not this time. But we've learned when to retreat."
Cassandra Lionheart: "You showed that to us."
Hector: "So all we have to do, then, is push you into a situation from which you can't retreat. Simple as that."
Ahiru looks at the others blankly - no need to know more bout the whole thing… it all seemed obvious to her… but her command of explanations would be lacking
Hector cracks his knuckles.
ORN: "What exactly ARE the spirits worried about? This Group has only seen the damage caused by their current state, neither the reason nor what they fear."
Biggs: "They're worried about you, of course."
Wedge: "BIGGS!"
Cassandra Lionheart: "No, Biggs. Talk. You shut up Wedge!"
Hicks: "Hey, it's fair. They'd find out before long anyway."
Wedge: "…am I the only one who believes in maximizing the advantage of surprise?"
ORN: "As This Unit said… Only the damage upon various populaces by the spirits is what this group has seen. There is another side. This group will listen to yours."
Hicks: "Yes."
Biggs: "Apparently."
ORN: "Mastery of an environment cannot be achieved without proper understanding."
ORN brings his spear down, though keeps it in hand, and plops down on the ground, sitting
Wedge: "Nyoro~n."
Cassandra_Lionheart sheathes her sword
Biggs: "…anyway."
Pak: "…"
Biggs: "We've found out quite a bit from Milf and Gaia. They tell us that you're trying to destroy the world, spirit by spirit."
Cassandra_Lionheart blinks
ORN: "Grav tells us it sealing them is the only method of saving it due to their recent actions. … Please continue…"
Cassandra_Lionheart thinks back to the Viera
Biggs: "The spirits are the life of the planet. What do you think will happen without them?"
Hector: "Look, this is what I figure."
ORN: "… Then you suspect this pendant to not seal their personalities but all influence?"
Sakha: "If you look at the abominations that occur WITH them…"
Hector: "Better they're cooped-up somewhere they can't do a damn thing than let 'em run batshit crazy."
Hector: "S'pose we could let 'em out if they learned to play nice. Then again, s'pose they could be lying. S'pose Grav could be lying."
Ahiru looks at her Pendant.
Pak: "Besides…"
Cassandra Lionheart: "Wait, did anyone remember anything from the Viera?"
Hector: "S'pose YOU could be lying. S'pose we'll have to find a new way of doing things, period."
ORN: "… However, if sealing them removes their functions in this world as opposed to simply calming them…."
Pak: "They've still done really horrible things."
Hector: "And nobody's told us WHY."
Hector: "Why the hell DID Milf go nuts and forget she was s'posed to give life to th'land so people could grow carrots?"
ORN: "And that secondary moon… The spirits This Group has encountered so far have warned us AFTER calming down, about grav and that moon…"
ORN nods at hector's question and looks back to Biggs
Cassandra Lionheart: "You don't think the thing that send us on this mission is posing as Grav, do you?"
Sakha: "Rabbits into Cannibals, Dwarves into stone, monsters appearing back hom, stopping knowledge and excluding any other beliefs…"
The trio continue to stay out of sight, ahead in the darkness.
Hector: "I mean, I enjoy a flaming carrot missile as much as the next guy, but a flaming carrot missile fired at a giant blob of body parts isn't exactly something that occurs naturally, y'know."
Cassandra_Lionheart sighs
Hicks: "Can't say I don't envy the dwarves, yanno? Sure, they ain't OUR kinda life anymore, but they're A kinda life. And they got all kinds o' beer!"
Wedge: "Someday, you are going to have to tell us exactly HOW you keep squeezing alcohol from the stones around here."
Hector: "It's called ALE, ya fudgepacker!"
ORN: "… Magma flows, This Unit gathers."
Hicks: "What can I say? It's a gift! *hic*"
Wedge: "…you are getting drunk even as we speak, aren't you?"
Hicks: "Hehe."
Pak: "…n.n;;;"
Biggs: "Let it go, Wedge. We've got bigger issues."
ORN: "Indeed."
Cassandra Lionheart: "Well, maybe we should talk with Gaia this time."
ORN: "Can you answer the questions posed before this tangent?"
Wedge: "Maybe you can answer one of ours. You don't seem too fazed by the path we are following. Do you know something about this?"
ORN: "Something is suspicious about This Group's sealing of the spirits…"
Sakha: "The way I see the whole thing is… we can't trust any of them."
ORN: "Negative. However Ahiru suspects the destruction to have been caused by a male she follows."
Hector: "When you see a flaming carrot missile fired into a mass of body parts, stuff just stops bothering you."
Cassandra Lionheart: "No we don't, Wedge."
ORN: "This Unit simply wishes to catch up to the source and learn from it, whether in combat or training."
Cassandra Lionheart: "We just want to figure this all out, guys."
Hicks: "Hehe. Well, maybe we will at the Volcannon."
Biggs: "The Volwhat?"
Cassandra Lionheart: "The Volcannon!"
Hicks: "Didn' ye just hear it? Gaia said's abandoning this body - getting too beat up."
ORN: "This Group has been pushed along by necessity. This does not necessarily imply the methods are correct, though self defense capacity is an absolute requirement of the creators."
Wedge: "…I have heard nothing."
ORN: "… Gaia plans to merge with the Volcannon?"
Hector: "Hooooooly crap."
Cassandra Lionheart: "That is going to be we don't know why."
Sakha: "We can't let that thing fire again, whoknows what the concequences will be?"
Biggs: "Oh! Gaia must be speaking through the drink. What's this Volcannon?"
ORN: "… An earlier attempt to destroy the secondary moon which threatened to annihilate all life currently on this world."
Sakha: "It failed though and split the races."
ORN: "This Unit suspects it had a hand in causing most spirits to go berserk, though this is only a hypothesis. The Creators would understand better, but are no longer available for comments."
ORN: "… However, this is why This Group's duty is suspicious…"
ORN: "If indeed this moon was brought by Grav, then sealing the spirits after having done this….."
ORN: "Is like picking targets off casually after combat casters use berserk on the enemy"
Cassandra Lionheart: "Then..maybe Gaia is trying to shoot one of the moons out?"
Hector: "…and it'll probably fail a second time."
ORN: "Causing the prior cataclysm and mass destruction once more."
Wedge: "Whatever. So long as we're blabbing information, we just found the end of the trail."
Cassandra Lionheart: "We have to tell Gaia not to do it."
Wedge: "If I had to guess, I'd say whatever made this doubled back and is headed your way."
Ahiru: "Fakir~!"
ORN: "It may simply seek it for the defensive housing however."
Cassandra Lionheart: "Then lets try to talk to Gaia this time."
Pak: "Oh!"
A rumbling sounds from above. It sounds like combat.
Pak looks up.
The ceiling is low but solid - though bits of rock rain off of it as it shakes.
Hector looks up, and then there's a panel of his face close-up having a shocked look.
Cassandra_Lionheart looks up, and blinks
Pak hmms…
Pak looks around.
Pak: "I can try phasing through the ceiling if ORN got me up there."
Ahiru: "Fakir~!" She calls again.
There are stalagmites, loose rocks, and some gil in a corner…
ORN nods and puts Pak on his shoulder
That corner must have been the golem's heart. There is enough for 1730 per person.
ORN Jumps up with Pak at the Ceiling
Pak touches the ceiling and ESCAPES
Pak phases 16 meters straight up!
The ceiling is low enough that Pak almost scrapes his head even before ORN jumps.
Cassandra Lionheart: "Good luck, Pak."
ORN crashes back down with a few busted bits after his slight miscalculation
Ahiru tries to find a path up.
ORN: "… Ow."
There is a crater in the ceiling where ORN jumped.
Hector: "Hit it again."
There is no immediately apparent path up - yet.
ORN holds lance up, concentrates for a moment, forming a large spiky shell around it, and jumps again!
[OOC] WC GM: STR check, ORN.
ORN rolled 1d100 and got 6 ( Total: 6 )
ORN slams spear into the ceiling and detonates it
[OOC] ORN: pass by 55 and was that a crit? ^^;
ORN not only shatters the roof, revealing a tunnel, but his spear crashes through and shatters the roof of that tunnel too, that being the floor Pak had come to rest on.
Pak, a rock golem slightly larger than ORN, and a hume very familiar to Ahiru come crashing down…
Pak acks~!
Hector tries to catch Pak.
ORN blinks, … er… victorious?
[OOC] WC GM: And cut! 4920 XP and 1730 Gil each from the combat.
