EC Session 4.12

Morning, Boltember 3 Merday.
The two Mignons glare at each other, rivalry plain as day on their faces.
All around you is evidence of their handiwork - in perfectly-matched pairs.
Even the cold, impersonal gray steel room, initially designed mainly to keep the water at bay, now looks comfortable, warm, inviting, and cute.
Ahiru wonders if red/pink or purple would look better on her…
Hector rubs his eyes, not sure if he's dreaming this up.
Exactly half the room is decked out in pinks and reds; the rest in shades of lavender and purple. Which half seems to keep changing, though, as the two circle each other.
Felicia blinks.
Cassandra_Lionheart looks at Pak and sighs "Ready?"
[OOC] ORN: : oh yeah, the FAE
[OOC] WC GM: Yep.
Pak: "…Huh."
Pak stares for a bit.
Pak: "Umm…"
Cassandra Lionheart: "We got to stop them from doing this."
Pak: "Yes."
Pak raises his hand. "Mignons~ I have a question."
MignonRose: "…nyo?"
MignonLilas: "What…"
MignonRose: "…is…"
MignonLilas: "…it…"
MignonRose: "…nyo?"
ORN stares through both of them menacingly but lets pak and cassie do the talking
Cassandra Lionheart: "Could you two sit down, and think about what your doing?"
Pak: "Well… Because your designs are so amazing, I was wondering if you could give me some fashion advice."
Pak: "For instance…"
Pak looks at Cassie.
Pak: "Well, she's wearing a largely white outfit, and I'm wearing a mostly black one."
Cassandra_Lionheart nods with Pak.
Pak: "Which do you think is a better color?"
MignonLilas: "They…"
MignonRose: "…both…"
MignonLilas: "…work…"
MignonRose: "…nyo."
Cassandra_Lionheart blinks "So, you think we should go black and white then?"
Pak: "Good, then I'm glad you agree on one thing, at least. n.n"
Pak hms. Maybe his hunch is off.
MignonRose: "Pink nyo! Life's true color nyo!"
The two Mignons resume glaring at each other.
Pak: "Hmm~"
Pak: "How do you feel about Blue?"
They shrug in unison. "All…" "…colors…" "…work…" "…in…" "…the…" "…right…" "…situation…" "…nyo."
Cassandra Lionheart: "That is true. Just like both of you."
MignonLilas: "?"
MignonRose: "Nyo?"
ORN: "Therefore this argument is utterly meaningless"
Cassandra Lionheart: "If you both work together, beautiful things can happen."
Sakha is in an outfit that is Red and Purple.
Mignons: "Work…""…together…""…nyo?"
Pak points at his sister!
Pak: "Yes!"
Pak: "Look at the way those two colors synthesize together!"
Cassandra Lionheart: "Open a shop together. You both have the knowledge and expertise in fashion. Why not?"
MignonRose: "I already have a shop nyo. And I'm sure someone that talented does too nyo."
MignonLilas: "…"
Cassandra Lionheart: "I think it would be great for you both to work together."
Pak: "I'd really like that too!"
MignonRose: "What about her customers nyo? I couldn't pull someone like that away from her responsibilities nyo!"
Cassandra Lionheart: "Open a seperate shop in her area. Expand."
ORN: "Refusal and continued arguments over bloody colors would result in a combination of the physical spaces containing your bodies at exceedingly unsafe velocities. You will open a shop midway between each of your original shops, leaving subordinates to handle sales at the original locations."
[OOC] WC GM: Awareness roll if you don't remember a certain critical something here.
Pak: "Ahh, that'd work. An HQ!"
Hector rolled 1d100 and got 99 ( Total: 99 )
Cassandra Lionheart rolled 1d100 and got 10 for a total of 10
ORN: "This minimises travel time to either of your original shops for custom orders or fittings, and allows an additional, centralised location to work from, reducing material transport costs."
[OOC] Hector: …fffffffffffffuck.
Pak rolled 1d100 and got 86 for a total of 86
[OOC] Pak: Pass by 14.
[OOC] Cassandra Lionheart: cool I see everything
Pak: "…"
Pak: "Ohhh wait."
ORN tries to absorb any precipitate around him
Cassandra Lionheart: "Oh my…Guys, her shop was lost in the lava. This would be perfect then to work together!"
Pak: "Her shop fell into the lava."
MignonRose: "…what nyo?"
Pak: "Her shop fell into the lava."
Pak repeats himself.
MignonLilas: "…"
ORN: "Hm… this makes things easier ^^.
"
MignonRose: "…you mean…nyo…"
ORN nods
ORN: "BOOM"
MignonRose: "That's so sad nyo! A craftsman as good as me without her tools nyo!"
Cassandra Lionheart: "Yeah, it was destroyed. If you both open a shop together now, think of the increase in customers."
MignonLilas: "You…really think I'm good?"
MignonRose: "Well of course nyo. Just look around nyo. You've matched me, the best armorsmith in Refuge, perfectly nyo."
Pak: "n.n"
Pak: "It's almost as if you were related somehow. n.n;"
Mignons: "…"
Cassandra Lionheart: "Yeah…"
MignonRose: "…nyo."
ORN: "Evil clones?"
Cassandra Lionheart: "What do you say, ladies?" *looks at ORN* "No."
MignonLilas: "I suppose…"
MignonRose: "…we could try nyo."
Cassandra Lionheart: "Good."
They reach out to shake hands - and freeze, the moment they make contact.
Cassandra_Lionheart walks over to both of them
Cassandra Lionheart: "Huh?"
Hector is afraid to talk. The voice of a regular heterosexual man who doesn't want their clothes might scare them.
Felicia: "…"
Pak: "!"
Pak: "W-wah."
Sakha: "…you know… you two have chemistry…"
[OOC] Hector: …symmetrical docking?
[OOC] Hector: Mignonryujin?
[OOC] WC GM: Only their hands are touching at this time.
Cassandra Lionheart: "Wow…My magic sence! This is intense!!"
Pak: "Waruuu.."
Pak: "That's bad, I think. Maybe my hunch was correct after all."
They slowly let go, expressions fading from their faces.
Hector: "'sup, kid? You smell somethin' bad? Think we should book it?"
ORN: "… this could be a problem"
Cassandra_Lionheart holds her head
Pak: "It's…"
Then they whirl as one and point at the party.
Pak: "Eee?!"
Cassandra Lionheart: "Huh?"
Mignons: "There is a third of us out there, somewhere. YOU will find her and rescue her!"
MignonRose: "Nyo."
Cassandra Lionheart: "We can try."
Pak: "…A…a third?"
MignonLilas: "Another sister."
Sakha: "I wonder what race she would be?"
Pak blinks…
MignonRose: "Who shares our soul nyo."
MignonLilas: "We felt her just now."
MignonRose: "Thank you for leading us to each other nyo."
[OOC] Hector: Lilas is an elf, so what's Rose? Also an elf?
[OOC] WC GM: Mithra.
[OOC] Pak: Rose is Mithra.
[OOC] Hector: Hmm.
[OOC] Hector: So she'd be either a dwarf, moogle, human, or viera.
[OOC] Pak: Possibilities- Viera, Moogle, Hume, Dwarf…
[OOC] WC GM: Or something else. ;)
Hector: "Yeah, no problem."
[OOC] Sakha: Oh no… a Yeti?
[OOC] Hector: HUGE GUTS.
[OOC] WC GM: Not saying 'til you meet her. Which won't be for a while.
Pak: "…Um…"
Pak: "Out of curiosity."
Pak: "Do you know her Color Scheme?"
Pak: "It'd help us very much in finding her."
Mignon Lilas shakes her head. "Sorry."
Pak: "It's okay~"
Mignon Rose does likewise, in unison. "Drawing a blank nyo."
ORN: "… Between this demand and the environmental damage you have caused… This Unit trusts there are… 'incentives' for this?"
Pak: "We'll look around in places that are Yellow or Green or Blue Or Orange!"
MignonLilas: "…doesn't sound right."
Pak: "…Eh?"
MignonRose: "Blanker than that nyo."
Pak: "But those are the colors that are left… aren't they? *.*"
Pak: "White, maybe? Hm."
Mignons: "Maybe."
MignonRose: "Nyo."
ORN: "Also red and white. Perhaps they get paler."
Pak: "Or grey or black…"
Pak: "We'll see."
Felicia ponders.
Pak nods.
Pak: "And ORN…"
Pak: "Well, think of it this way. n.n;"
Hector: "Right. Well, since you could feel her, do you have any kind of vague lead we can follow, or not?"
Cassandra Lionheart: "But whaever it is, we have to get her back with her other sisters."
MignonLilas: "Beyond a shield."
Pak: "Shield? O_O"
Hector: "Hm. Alright, thanks."
Pak: "Wait, where have I heard that?"
ORN: "… The ice-region barrier field"
MignonRose: "She knows not of us nyo."
Cassandra Lionheart: "I don;t know Pak."
Pak: "Ah well…"
Pak bows.
Pak: "Anyway."
Pak: "…Please clean up after yourselves!"
Mignons: "We will~"
Pak: "You'll need all that material to make your new shop!"
MignonRose: "Nyo."
Pak grins and walks away. "Situation is controlled!@"
ORN: "And… This Unit IS thinking of it this way, Pak. It would be rude not to be offered due payment for requests that do not involve the slaying and looting of a specific target"
Pak: "…"
Pak points at the Mignons.
ORN nodnods
Pak: "Then make us armor next time we come through refuge!"
[OOC] ORN: been putting points in trade!
Mignons: "Find us our sister and we'll be able to make the best armor!"
MignonRose: "Nyo."
Pak: "Sure! n.n"
Cassandra Lionheart: "Cool. Okay, you got it."
ORN nods
[OOC] WC GM: I will give you this hint for when this'll come back up: think Artifacts.
[OOC] Pak: I figured that. n.n
[OOC] Felicia: DUN DUN
[OOC] Hector: Shweet.
Sakha: "Well we've resolved this situation… so… shall we get back to ensure the safety of the Elvaan knowledge?"
Pak: "Yes!"
Pak: "Also, fighting Pyr."
Cassandra Lionheart: "Yeah, we still got to do that."
Pak follows the trail backwards out of Seaburg. "…"
Pak: "Wait one second."
ORN: "Haste is required"
ORN heads out quickly
Pak suddenly ducks behind a pillar… and emerges in male clothes! An open trenchcoat and shorts!
Pak: ">:3"
Cassandra Lionheart: "…"
Felicia: "…"
Pak: "I need to show off to the older residents here."
Pak: "Hehehe… saved by a male mithra…"
Cassandra Lionheart: "So your going to flash them?"
Pak: "… no."
Sakha: "How crude Cass"
Cassandra Lionheart: "I'm kidding, Pak. You need to do what you need too."
ORN: "Is it that difficult to tell the difference?"
Pak nods.
Cassandra_Lionheart looks to Sakha "Sorry…"
Pak strides proudly at the head of the group.
ORN: "This Unit has only seen two male mithra in its existance"
Pak: "To be a man you must have honor, honor and a peeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeenis~"
Pak sings~
Hector chuckles. "I've taught him well."
Cassandra_Lionheart sighs
Sakha: "Pak!"
ORN: "?"
Pak: "I'll show this whole backwards dome the truth~"
Felicia coughs.
Pak doesn't listen to objections.
The mithra you pass on the way out seem stunned.
It is hard to tell if it is due to aftershock of the Mignons, or Pak.
Pak: "Iiii am the saaavior of seeeaburg~"
Hector is walking a few feet behind Pak.
ORN follows, looking curiously at all the shocked faces, interested
Pak: "Though I am a man, I still accomplished somethiiiing~"
Cassandra_Lionheart sigs as she walks with ORN
Pak: "I've escaped my role as breeding stock and become a great hero~"
ORN can distinguish even a few male faces among the shocked crowds
Pak: "Rise up, my fellow felines~ Prove you can do more than just sit around being housewives~!"
Pak: "The whole world and its treasures await you!"
Pak is positively glowing with confidence and charisma.
Cassandra_Lionheart is shaking her head now
Hector: "Heh. Didn't think he'd try to become so culturally significant at his age."
Hector laughs. "Well, that's what being a man is about!"
Pak stops being all dramatic, though, once they manage to leave Seaburg properly.
Even Trombe falls into line alongside the party as you make your way back into the sunlight.
Pak: "…hee. That was awesome~ <3"
Hector pats Trombe. "Did any of the cuteness cause you damage?"
Pak: "I've never felt so manly before~ And I got to make an impression on those backwards-brained elders!"
Cassandra Lionheart: Okay, it was, but still…Well got another issue now."
Pak: "Right, I'm done."
ORN: "He is quite capable of holding his own in combat, there is no reason these others should not be capable either should they attempt to"
ORN: "It may aid them additionally should word spread through remaining in non-female clothing for a time"
Pak puts on a tanktop under his trenchcoat and all of a sudden it's hard to tell if he's a boy or a girl again.
ORN would facepalm but doesn't know how
Pak: "Oh? Good point."
Pak takes it back off.
Cassandra_Lionheart hugs Pak though "Sorry about the flashing comment. It was out of context for me."
Felicia shakes her head.
ORN nods
Pak reveals his delicious flat chest to the world again.
Pak: "Right, so now let's go deal with Pyr."
ORN: "It is difficult to argue for your males rights when walking around as a female."
ORN nods at cassie and pats her on the head
ORN: "There is also nothing wrong with expressing one's desires"
ORN sparkles
Hector: "Now that we've got the chance, you think we should do a quick resupply before heading back out?"
Cassandra_Lionheart gets patted and smiles "Pak is Pak. Simple as that."
Pak: "Not sure I need supplies…"
Cassandra Lionheart: "Resupply, and weapon buying. Sure."
ORN nods
Pak: "We
Pak: "We'll stop in… Dwarf-land, on our way to Pyr."
ORN: "These books gave This Unit certain ideas on improving penetration power and reach…"
Pak: "So we can check in on Pyrtyr."
Cassandra Lionheart: "Yeah. We should do that also."
[OOC] Sakha: So wrong ORN
[OOC] ORN: hey, if there's no holes, its This Unit's job to thrust one into it!
[OOC] Cassandra Lionheart: erm…
[OOC] Sakha: That's worse ORN
Getting back to the Dwarven capital takes most of the day.
It is evening by the time you drop down the elevator shaft. Pyrtyr waves to you at the bottom.
Pak: "Hey~!"
Cassandra Lionheart: "Hi Pyrtyr."
Standing next to him is the one you named Regent.
Hector: "We ran into some mows again. Damn things never leave us alone."
Pak: "Ah, and Regent!"
ORN nods in greeting
Sakha: "Oh hey it's the Bunny, doing business as usual."
Felicia waves.
Regent: "Mows? I thought they had gone into hiding."
Cassandra Lionheart: "Hi regent. What arre you doing here?" *blushes at her*
Hector: "I think they'll be around long as the elements are crazy."
Pyrtyr: "She says she's some kind of official in the surface kingdom, so I've entrusted the books to her."
Hector: "In any case, good to see you again."
Pak: "Oh! Yes."
Sakha: "Perfect."
Pak: "She's the current head of Refuge."
Pak waves to her. :3
Cassandra Lionheart: "She is. she is also my friend." *goes and hugs the regent*
Felicia: "Indeed."
Pyrtyr: "…"
Ahiru: "We left her in charge up here, yup yup."
Pak: "So how's the lavamonster situation?"
Pyrtyr: "Ah! Aheh, well, there's been no further word. Actually, it has been far quieter than I expected."
Pak blinks?
Pak looks at Pyr funny.
Pak looks at the Regen.
[OOC] Pak: …t
Cassandra Lionheart: "Regent..is it getting that bad again?"
Regent: "Hmm?"
Cassandra_Lionheart continues to hug the Regent "Oh, I thought you and Pyrtyr were…um.." *blushes*
[OOC] ORN: :
Regent: "Oh! Silly!" She pats Cassandra. "You know I'm engaged."
ORN: "Cassie is therefeore her only mistress?"
Regent whispers, "Besides, he wouldn't go for it. I'd swear Pyrtyr's a eunuch."
Pyrtyr gives Regent a funny look.
Cassandra Lionheart: "I know." *lets go of the hug, before looking her up and down, and blushes at ORN, while here the Regent whisper to her. "Ahhhh."
Pak: "Oh, right…"
Pak: "How IS random, anyway? :3 And when's the wedding?"
Felicia blinks.
Regent stands back up. "He's…recovering. We're not planning on getting married until we're sure there'll be a world to raise our children in."
Regent: "Pyrtyr has told me quite a lot of history."
Regent: "Some of it almost sounded familiar."
ORN: "It IS effectively the subterranean parallel to surface history after all. A "meanwhile", as opposed to a seperate history"
Pak: "Hm…"
Regent: "Anyway, he says your friend got kidnapped, and that a certain trio is planning on summoning something."
Pak: "Yes, they-"
Pak: "…Wait, what?"
Pak: "Our friend was kidnapped?! Who?"
Regent: "I've dispatched ships to the surface sea above where it'll happen, just in case they break through."
[OOC] ORN: who got kidnapped?
Cassandra Lionheart: "Yeah…HM?"
Regent: "Fakir?"
Ahiru: Fakir, silly."
ORN: "… … . . of course. who else would dissapear"
Cassandra Lionheart: "Heh. Ture. Lets gets ome supplies and get going!"
Regent: "It would be better if you could take care of it, of course. If they break through - we could save the surface, but I don't know what would become of your friend."
ORN: "This Group has no intention of allowing them to break through."
Cassandra Lionheart: "Yeah."
Pak: "So!"
Pak: "Let's go."
Cassandra Lionheart: "Resuppling Pak?"
Pak: "Yeah."
Pak: "Stuff like that~"
Sakha: "It's time to teach them that they can't take the heat."
Sakha: "So they should chill out."
Cassandra_Lionheart giggles as she walks to Pak "Come on. We should get some new stuff, then we will bust tem up."
Hector: "o_O"
Felicia: "…"
Regent: "Oh! By the way, one of the court engineers wanted to see Trombe some time. He said he had come up with an upgrade."
Hector looks to Felicia briefly. "Man, you've got such an unreadable face."
ORN: "This would be most useful"
Elvarien: (I art here and or hello.)
Regent: "I think he's in this city, actually."
Pak: "Ooh~"
Felicia: "Hm?"
Hector ZOOMS his head back to Regent.
Cassandra Lionheart: "It would be useful."
Hector: "An upgrade for Trombe? Wonderful! Spectacular! Fantastic!"
Sakha: "Fine, it can wait for a bit… Pak, I'll go shopping with you."
Hector: "Trombe! Let's find this upgrader, and get you fitted for a new pair a'shoes."
Regent: "You'll have to find him. He just said he wanted to explore his ancestors' main town."
Ahiru smiles and hops over to join the shop team.
Pak: "!"
Pak takes Sakha's hand. <3
Pak: "Okay~ Let's go!"
Hector: "Orn? Felicia? Cassie? What about you guys?"
Cassandra Lionheart: "I can see about a new Sword, and such."
Sakha blushes a little. Pak actually looked pretty good dressed as a guy…
ORN: "This unit will commit to both. Searching can be aided from above"
Felicia looks over herself. "I'm fine, for the moment. But I don't mind tagging along."
Pyrtyr: "I need to finish some business with your Regent friend. When you are ready to go, find me on the south shore."
Cassandra_Lionheart stops next to the Regent, and smiles at her "Please be safe."
[OOC] Felicia: bbiaf, teehee
Regent: "I shall, friend."
Hector: "Ah. That's a good idea, Orn. Be my eyes in the sky."
Cassandra_Lionheart blushes as she runs off to go shopping.
[OOC] Ahiru: Oh if only we were 32 I could get a Thief Hat…
Hector: "Considering how damn high the ceiling is, you probably won't be htiting it anytime soon."
[OOC] Hector: I get most of my upgrades at 32/33.
[OOC] Pak: Yeah, I'm not that worried about upgrades x.x;")
[OOC] Sakha: If it's only 1 level difference can I scrounge that up?
Pak follows Sakha to go shopping.
[OOC] Pak: Nah, it means we could upgrade after boss fight
ORN: "This Unit requires a description of this person"
Ahiru hops along behind.
Regent: "A dwarf - he says he's met you before, when he promised to work on upgrades for Trombe."
[OOC] Pak: But I DO have something I could buy.
ORN: "Very well."
[OOC] Sakha: I wanna get a gold armlet
[OOC] Ahiru: I'm going for a new Ribbon <3
ORN nods and heads up, towards the shopping sector from above, keeping an eye out
Pak oogs~
Pak oohs, rather.
Pak: "Sakha! Look at this cape! It's so nice~"
Sakha: "Cape?"
Hector takes Trombe and starts asking around if anyone's seen a particularly foreign-looking dwarf.
Ahiru oooohs with Pak.
Hector: "Yeah, he's a surface dwarf, squishy all his life…"
Ahiru: "I like it!"
Pak Zephyr Cape.
Pak er, shows that off.
[OOC] Hector: I should get one of those, soon.
Pak: "I'm getting this. n.n"
[OOC] Hector: I'm only using a Wolf Mantle.
[OOC] Hector: Evade is AWESOME.
A lot of "foreign" dwarves from Mountainsburg are walking around.
Ahiru: "I want one tooo! Is there another?"
[OOC] Pak: It's only awesome if you use shields n.n;
Hector: "Crap. Hm."
[OOC] Hector: I do.
[OOC] Hector: I figured I'll forget the new weapon thing. Having a whip is part of my identity as a Belmont.
A city full of ancestor-seeking people in an "exotic" locale, now only one elevator ride away. The tourist trade is happening.
Sakha: If you really want something so trivial… At least let me see if I can get you a deal buying two…"
[OOC] Pak: Hector, come along and see if we can get a good deal.
[OOC] WC GM: Trade and Negotiation are quite allowable at this time, yes.
[OOC] Hector: In a bit.
Sakha rolled 1d100 and got 69 for a total of 69
[OOC] Hector: Once Trombe gets his midseason upgrade, I'll catch up with you and at least get a cape upgrade.
[OOC] Sakha: Pass by 3
[OOC] ORN: will roll hp/mp while I'm at it, done with level save for that
ORN rolled 1d10+7 and got 7 for a total of 14
[OOC] WC GM: Pass by 3 is good for a 5% discount, party-wide.
Hector asks around where the tourist dwarves are for a specific royal scientist-type who may have mentioned a robotic chocobo.
Sakha: "Tough cookies… but at least we got something…"
Pak rolled 1d8+5 and got 3 for a total of 8
[OOC] Hector: I rolled HP last session and got…14, I think.
Cassandra Lionheart: "I guess, I will wait for getting goods then. That Ogre Nix, is calling my name."
[OOC] Hector: My HP rolls = rox
[OOC] ORN: avail 56 right?
[OOC] Cassandra Lionheart: 55
[OOC] Hector: Saiai said 55.
Ahiru: "Thanks Saki!" She buys herself the cape.
Pak buys cape too~
Pak sells back his old one as well.
[OOC] WC GM: Hector: Inquiry check, but with a bonus.
Sakha sees some nice gold jewelry that she trades her mithril armlet in for.
[OOC] ORN: how much gil last session by the way? set xp to what everyone else had but gil…
[OOC] WC GM: See logs page for last session's XP/Gil rewards.
[OOC] Hector: My notepad says 2710.
[OOC] ORN: nevermind, will check log
Hector rolled 1d100 and got 44 ( Total: 44 )
[OOC] WC GM: Passes thanks to bonus.
[OOC] Hector: WOO
Dwarf: "Royal, you say? Aye, I heard one o' the newcomers say somethin' 'bout that. O'er thataway." She points.
[OOC] WC GM: ORN, Awareness check if you're looking for the same dwarf.
ORN rolled 1d100 and got 32 ( Total: 32 )
[OOC] ORN: passed by 64
Hector: "Thanks!"
Cassandra Lionheart rolled 1d100 and got 83 for a total of 83
[OOC] Hector: Cassie is not looking for a dwarf.
[OOC] Hector: She is in a shop.
[OOC] Cassandra Lionheart: oy, sorry. I thought I typed I exited.
Hector heads 'thataway', as it were.
ORN spies the dwarf, chatting with quite a few others. It seems they are as interested in what he has to say as he is in what they have.
ORN: "hm…"
ORN will crashland himself right behind him
RoyalDwarf: "Ach! Laddie, watch where you're landin'!"
ORN: "This Unit's landings are relatively flawless."
ORN stands back up and nods
[OOC] ORN: and yes, I realise 'relatively flawless' is like saying 'just a FEW flipper babies'
Hector runs over to where Orn slammed.
ORN: "This Unit was informed of upgrade possibilities for the Trombe Unit, from your person?"
Hector: "The Regent told us, so you know we're good."
RoyalDwarf: "Aye. Not surprised ye came lookin' fer me once ye heard o' it."
Felicia waves at the Dwarf.
The dwarf waves back. "Ahoy, Captain!"
RoyalDwarf: "Fancy meetin' ya on dry land."
Felicia nods with a smile. "An unfortunate circumstance."
[OOC] ORN: wait, is this the same dwarf I'd tried to talk into giving me that ship's main gun?
[OOC] WC GM: Yes.
RoyalDwarf: "Me, I'd call it fortunate. Now, I haven't had much luck lookin' into weapons, but I came up with some propulsion fer ya."
ORN darkens and slouches a bit
ORN: "This Unit was hoping to assimilate new and wonderful feelings…"
RoyalDwarf: "Got an idea from one Kupostein, figured I'd give it a whirl."
RoyalDwarf: "If ye'd lemma borrow Trombe for a few, I'll return it with the upgrades installed."
ORN nods
Cassandra_Lionheart walks out the store with nothing.
Hector: "Sure. Trombe, go with the nice dwarf."
Hector gestures.
Hector: "He'll fix you up good."
Trombe: "Affirmative."
Cassandra_Lionheart looks for the others
The dwarf and Trombe walk off together.
Hector dusts his hands off and heads back into the city to see what the others are up to.
Pak shopping~
Cassandra_Lionheart sighs, and looks some more
Pak picks up a Megapit!
[OOC] Pak: Er, Megapot.
Dwarf: "Ye lot are from upstairs, then?"
Hector is looking around the general area of the city where he saw everyone else depart to.
Felicia is following along.
ORN finishes grabbing a few things and returns towards the group
One of the dwarves nearby taps Hector on the side and repeats his question.
Hector turns around.
Hector: "Oh, sorry. I was a little lost in thought."
[OOC] Hector: brb
Hector: "Yeah, we are."
Dwarf: "I recognize ya'. Ye've come through here befor'. Some o' the elvaan I got at my inn, they talked aboutcha too."
Dwarf: "Don't suppose I could get ye lot to stay at my inn tonight, and tell yer stories? I'll give ye board for the night, and the ale's free - one o' my guests be makin' some good stuff, an' he says he can make all we can drink."
Cassandra_Lionheart hears that and rushes to where Hector is "Well, sounds good to me."
Hector: "Um…yeah, I'd be okay with that."
Hector: "I'm sure Orn could regale you guys with stories about how we brough happiness through mayhem and murder."
ORN: "Did someone mention the spreading of joy?"
The dwarf points to a nearby building. "Alright. I'm runnin' tha' one. We're closin' up within the hour, so make sure yer there before then."
Hector refers Orn to the dwarf.
Said dwarf then walks over to it.
Hector heads into the store where everyone else is.
Cassandra_Lionheart slaps her forehead "ORN…We really need to talk about that."
[OOC] Hector: having finally found it and such.
Hector waves at Pak from across the place.
Pak oohs!
Pak heads there, pulling Ahiru and Sakha along.
Pak: "What is it?"
Sakha looks a little annoying being dragged around.
Hector: "We just dropped off Trombe with the dwarf, and we've got a free night of rest tonight in exchange for telling some stories."
Ahiru laughs
Hector: "They've got some killer ale, too, apparently."
Cassandra Lionheart: "cool."
Hector: "I'm going to pick something up here and then head over. You can go ahead if you want."
ORN nods
Cassandra_Lionheart nods, and walks to the Inn
Hector looks around the store for something, something…he has a weird feeling in his gut, that he should get.
Sakha: "Ale…"
Pak: "Ahh, cool~"
Pak pulls Sakha along. <3 "Let's get drunk, sis~"
Cassandra_Lionheart blinks at Pak "You sure you want to?"
Sakha: "eh? I do NOT get drunk!"
Hector sells off his Wolf Mantle and gets a Zephyr Cape.
Cassandra_Lionheart looks for the Regent actually, before going to get drunk
[OOC] Hector: doing math now.
[OOC] Hector: JESUS CHRIST EIGHTY EVADE.
Pak: "Well… that's fine."
Pak: "Just drink with us."
[OOC] Pak: I have 85. <3
[OOC] Pak: But yeah~
Regent is still near the elevator, talking with Pyrtyr.
[OOC] Hector: I'm gonna get more at the next availability tier.
ORN: "If you do not get drunk, this will place you in an advantageous position compared to several others within the party"
Regent: "Ahh? Cassandra, what can we do for you?"
[OOC] Felicia: You and evade
[OOC] Hector: And I've got good armor, too!
[OOC] Hector: Once Speed hits 14, I'm putting Vit to 14.
[OOC] Hector: Basically, I'm doing Str/Vit/Agi/Spd.
[OOC] Hector: Spr's 12/15, so that's all I need. I needed MArm, but my better armor will make up for it.
Cassandra Lionheart: "I was wondering…how is my mom?" *looks down and sighs* "I still worry about her."
Hector thanks the shopkeeper.
Sakha: "… fine…"
Pak gets himself and Sakha drinks.
[OOC] Hector: 5% discount saved me 300 gil. Thanks, Sakha.
Regent: "Actually, I haven't heard anything more about her."
Hector heads into the inn, and is surprised to see Pak's already making with the ale.
Pak however, gets them both something non-alcoholic. But doesn't tell Sakha.
Cassandra_Lionheart looks up at the Regent "Really? I though she was going to Forestburg?"
Sakha eyes the drink suspiciously and sips it.
Hector: "Hm, now what to do."
Regent nods. "And that's the last I heard from her."
Regent: "I'm sure I would've heard if something bad happened."
Pak sips it. Root beer. <3
Hector takes a seat at the bar and gets half a glass of the regular not-too-strong ale to start with.
Cassandra Lionheart: "Thanks Regent." *gets closer to whisper to her ear* "Thanks, you are going to be a big help to me, that is for sure."
The ale is potent. Even the root beer is potent.
Regent nods.
[OOC] ORN: stone tables?
Regent: "You're welcome."
[OOC] WC GM: Yep.
Cassandra_Lionheart hugs the regent tight, and blushes a bit
Regent hugs back
ORN sits, then ».»
Pak eeks.
Pak: "This is strong. O_O"
[OOC] Hector: Is Cassie some kind of half-lesbian? She hugs Regent a lot.
ORN nods
ORN: "Delicious"
Felicia takes a seat at the bar, she just gets some water though.
Hector: "Huh. Well, it's no surprise."
[OOC] Cassandra Lionheart: she sees the Regent as a mother figure really.
DwarfInnkeeper: "…oh, right! Yer that crystal-eater, ain't ya?"
The innkeeper tosses a piece of quartz to ORN.
[OOC] ORN: people don't have lesbian orgies with their mothers ^^;;;;;;;;;;
ORN grabs it
[OOC] Hector: That's a surprisingly complex story.
ORN: "Appreciate it ^^.
"
Cassandra_Lionheart lets go "Want to have a drink with us at least before you go?"
ORN lets go of the table a bit
ORN assimilates
Regent: "Wish I could. I need to return to Refuge."
[OOC] Cassandra Lionheart: Well, Cassie see something motherly in her, and is trying to attach to it
Hector: "Y'got anything to eat? If I'm going to be drinkin' all night, I don't wanna get plastered 'fore the fun starts."
Cassandra Lionheart: "Okay…Be careful please?"
Pak: "Oh, yeah! Food would be good too!"
Regent pats Cassandra on the head. "Sure. You take care too."
ORN: "This group has multiple stories, most of which involve a certain level of action and violence."
Cassandra Lionheart: "Okay. Mom." *covers her mouth, and blushes*
Innkeeper: "Food ye' wan', eh? Well…"
ElvaanChef: "Serpent sirloin!"
Pak: "Ooh!"
The innkeeper BLINKS.
[OOC] ORN: holy freaky issues, batm… er, cassie!
[OOC] Cassandra Lionheart: Blah! It will all work out.
Before the innkeeper can react, a plate of grilled fish-steak the size of the table lands on the group's table.
Sakha: "Serpent….? Hm…"
Regent giggles, lets go, and heads up via the elevator, waving as she does.
ORN stares at the plate itself intently
Cassandra_Lionheart waves back, and rushes into the Inn
ORN: "Best for last huh…"
The ceramic plate gleams under the meat.
Pak: "Awesooome~"
Pak DIGS IN~
Pak: "This must be the food we caught~!"
ElvaanChef: "Garnish!"
Pak: "Garnish?"
Hector eats, too. SO HUNGRY
Cassandra_Lionheart raises her hand to the chef "I'm with them. Can I get an ale please?"
Onions and radishes and peppers - likewise cooked - land upon and next to the meat. There is more than enough for Ahiru to dine on them alone.
A mug of ale appears in Cassandra's hand. It is difficult to say from which direction it came.
Ahiru: "Mmmmm nyummy."
Cassandra_Lionheart blinks and sits down next to Pak
ORN: "… Thousands of years of high heat, porous, unglazed crystalline texture, easily fractured but truly worth it… This truly is a quality plate…"
ORN sloly slides his hand towards it
ORN stares at the shining beacon of taste
Pak eeeeat~
Cassandra Lionheart: "Can we get another plate for ORN to eat here please?"
Pak: "Ahh… It's been so long since we had a real feast~"
Felicia takes a few bites.
Hector: "Sound the horn, we've got a meal."
ORN moves back with a few parts that didn't have food on them cleanly taken away….
[OOC] Hector: y'know, 'cause it's a feast, and we need the Feasting Horn. And a viking.
DwarfInnkeeper: "Let 'im eat what's on th' table before ye ask fer seconds."
Cassandra_Lionheart takes a small bit of fish, and drinks a bit more ale. "All right. Sorry."
ORN: "The table too?"
ORN sprakles brightly
The innkeeper sweatdrops.
Hector rolls up a few onion slices in a piece of meat.
Hector chows down.
Cassandra_Lionheart looks to ORN "No we need SOMETHING to keep the food on!"
[OOC] Hector: THIS IS MAKING ME FOR REALS HUNGRY.
ORN: "… oh."
Another Elvaan laughs. "G'wan! I can do stonecraft!"
ORN nods
DwarfInnkeeper: "A…alright. In…that case, sure, g'head."
ORN stands, brings his fist up and SLAMS it down through the table, before sitting again and sparkling
Pak grabs his share and digs in. "Such a delicious, almost firey taste… <3"
Cassandra Lionheart: "I like it." *picks up her plate and ale before ORN destroys the table* "Stop playing with your food!"
ORN leaves a hole through the table. The rest of it is sturdy enough - for now - to hold up the feast.
ORN: "This unit was not playing"
Cassandra Lionheart: "oh, well…still be more carful."
ORN brings up fist and points at the large, slowly shrinking mass of granite stuck to it
ORN: "Walking all the time erodes joints, you know."
The stonecraft Elvaan weaves some plasma magic. Before long, the table's dark stone is restored.
Pak: "…Cool!"
Hector drinks the weak ale while eating.
StonecraftElvaan: "Just don't take it for granite ell oh ell zee."
Cassandra_Lionheart laughs at the Elvaan, and finishes her first glass of ale, asking for a second one.
Pak sipping strong root beer, eating tasty cooked strong veggies with strongly-flavored meat from a strong monster.
The stonecraft Elvaan seems to be laughing a bit.
ORN: "Agreed"
ORN sparkles and nods
Hector: "Hey, Pak. Doesn't all of us, sitting around here, eating a meal remind you of the old days in the cave, where we'd eat off that huge table we stole from the rich furniture salesman?"
Cassandra_Lionheart looks to Hector and blinks "Oh…I must have come around after you did it then. I thought you actually had it there for a while?"
Hector: "Nah. We never had huge furniture in Shaft. Guess that's why the salesman came around. He thought we need stuff that was huge. Like we could afford it. What a wanker."
ORN: "?"
ORN: "How did you survive if you lacked enough funds to procure furniture?"
Cassandra Lionheart: "They were thieves, ORN."
Pak: "Yeah… <3"
StonecraftElvaan: "There are caves in the surface world?"
Cassandra Lionheart: "But they took from the rich, and spread it aound Shaft."
ORN nods at the Elvaan
Hector: "We barely had any farmland, too."
StonecraftElvaan: "What's farmland?"
Hector: "So we'd steal basic supplies, mostly."
ORN: "Numerous ones. A rare few which lead to the subterranean regions, hordes of blue slimes, or the primary PMA forges and hangars"
Cassandra_Lionheart nods "Yeah. i remember some of the "food runs" I had to do."
ORN: "Farmland are areas where ammunition and foodstuffs are grown"
The Elvaan stares at ORN blankly.
ORN: "Similar to natural crystal growth from sedimentation it seems, but faster and not edible."
Pak: "…"
Pak: "Uh…"
Pak: "You grow plants there."
ORN: "… yes, plants. that's right."
ORN nods, remembering the word now
DwarfInnkeeper: "It's a kinda earth magic. Ye plan' some seeds, an' th' seeds turn into oth'r things by themselves."
Cassandra Lionheart: "Hector, now that I think of it, since I am an outcast to my family, we should take from them if needed."
Hector chuckles.
Hector: "Hey, if your family's got somethin' we can use in our quest to save the world, might as well liberate it from 'em, right?"
StonecraftElvaan: "…alright. I kinda get it. I think."
ORN nods at hector
Cassandra_Lionheart laughs "They have enough White Spells, that is for sure."
ORN: "Just imagine soft ground as automatic plasma manipulation for certain materials placed within."
ORN: "Given enough time, things can be pulled out. Far slower, however."
The elvaan nods.
Cassandra_Lionheart chugs back to ale and sighs
ORN: "Certain things can be eaten by these people, wheras others, usually colored bright orange as a warning, serve as projectiles for siege weaponry."
Cassandra Lionheart: "Carrots are food also ORN."
The elvaan blinks.
ORN: "Nonsense. The creators relentlessly warned This Series that consumption of explosives was detrimental to the health of most races"
Cassandra Lionheart: "If the carrot is not on fire, it is a food. A good food."
ORN: "… What if it were to ignite within?"
StonecraftElvaan: "Wouldn't it be easier just to…" He waves his fingers, generating small firecrackers in the air which go off almost as soon as they are formed.
ORN thinks back to childhood
Pak: "Hey, Ahiru."
ORN: "Bombs! You mustn't bite it!"
Pak: "Do you like carrots?"
Cassandra Lionheart: "Yeah, but we didn't have that in the Viera lands."
Ahiru nods.
OtherElvaan: "Wha you do? Is dat some magics?"
ORN nods at the Elvaan
StonecraftElvaan: "…no…well…yes and no…it's what Pyrtyr taught me. I never thought about it that much until now."
ORN: "However, their method does not require the use of magic or energy manipulation, and is pre-readied given enough time."
ORN shakes head at the other Elvaan
OtherElvaan: "You know we chased magics out."
The stonecraft elvaan looks uncomfortable.
ORN: "There is little to no difference between plasma manipulation and magic other than the name. Both are the manipulation of energy and matter to achieve one's ends."
Cassandra Lionheart: "Come on…no fighting here, pleasE?"
Hector: "Man, Orn…"
Cassandra_Lionheart hicups after saying that.
Hector: "Doncha think it's a little late in the day to make people question their belief system?"
ORN: "It was the teaching methods that certain people disagreed with"
ORN shakes head
ORN: "Of course not"
ORN: "Good or ill are a matter of whom uses the ability and for what purpose"
OtherElvaan: "Whut. You mean, like, was de mages and not de magics that were bad?"
ORN: "The backlash against 'magic users' was due to the large number of self-proclaimed users of such abilities that comitted atrocities or controlled the population."
Cassandra Lionheart: "The mages. Yes. Power can corrupt."
OtherElvaan: "…alright. I can live wit dat."
ORN: "Their abilities became taboo as a social norm because of this. However the power itself is no different, and was continued to be used, even for cooking."
ORN nods
StonecraftElvaan: "Huh. Well, if that's the case…"
StonecraftElvaan: "…"
StonecraftElvaan: "…wait. The legends say, they fled to the south, seeking the surface."
ORN: "An open mind is useful to all: The ban on 'magic' as you call it is no different than if all slashing weaponry was banned because an invading army used them and was repelled"
StonecraftElvaan: "This is the south. And…" He points up.
ORN nods
ORN: "This Unit's creators, in Forestburg."
To a one (other than Felicia), the elvaan present freeze and STARE in surprise.
ORN blinks
ORN: "What?"
Pak: "H..huh?"
Cassandra Lionheart: "what is wrong sir?"
DwarfInnkeeper: "Ye just said ye were made by their long-chased-'way cousins."
Pak: "Hm."
Pak: "Actually."
Pak raises his hand.
Pak: "We took care of that."
Pak: "The elves and moogles were creating robots…"
Pak: "That were oppressing people on the surface."
DwarfInnkeeper: "Ye' don' say."
Pak: "But that was because of Bolt."
ORN: "Those sentinels were created by the moogles; Tech school designs to be exact"
Pak: "We took him out and now the robots can go to more useful-"
Pak: "…Oh!"
Pak: "So THAT'S why you're made of Crystals and not metal."
Pak: "You're an Elvaan design!"
ORN: "It is true that This Series was created to take them out. However any sentient techschool designs will remain to be eliminated"
Hector: "…fascinatin'."
Pak: "Hm."
DwarfInnkeeper: "Oh really, now?"
Pak: "To be honest… I don't know a thing about Elvaan Society on the surface."
Pak: "Hey, Felicia."
Cassandra Lionheart: "Wait..My father worked on this unit. Did you knwo of his name?"
Pak: "What's life in Forestburg like? You must know more than us, at least."
ORN: "There were many trees, numerous streets, and people walking about. This Unit was located on the outskirts due to the storage location…"
Cassandra_Lionheart points at ORN "technically this is my brother."
Felicia tilts her head. "Dunno. Never lived there."
ORN: "Not all that different from any other cities This Group has encountered"
Pak: "Hm."
Pak: "…Hee."
ORN: "More stone and crystal, less metal, however."
Pak: "To be honest, there could still be lingering elitism…"
Pak: "Among the surviving mages… but…"
Pak: "I really wouldn't know, and it's definitely not obvious."
ORN: "There are likely several survivors, however This Unit was ordered not to remain for long"
The innkeeper claps. "Alright, e'ryone. I think ye've all had 'nough t' drink fer tonight. Ye elvaan wanna seek out Forestburg, ye can do it inna mornin'."
Pak: "Right, sorry. n.n;"
StonecraftElvaan: "Survivors?!?"
Pak: "I dunno."
ORN: "The Layout of the city is not well known to This Unit… The PMA underground sectors were where most time was spent."
The innkeeper sighs. "Was afraid 'e'd pick up on that."
ORN: "It can be assumed… Even a massive conflagration can leave some people unharmed."
The stonecraft Elvaan stands up. "Survivors? Conflaguration? Did something happen?"
Cassandra_Lionheart blinks and sighs, trying to get an ale for the road
ORN: "Any Creators not on PMA grounds or capable of surviving intense heat could have survived, provided they were not underground during the collapse."
Pak: "The forest caught on fire."
ORN nods at the elvaan
Felicia: "In short."
Hector: "We got blamed for it, too."
ORN: "It was the 'trio', it seems. These same ones being protected by the elemental spirits"
Hector: "A total freakin' set-up, too. The wanted posters for us showed up way too quickly after the fire."
OtherElvaan: "Whut? Even up there, Pyr chased our kin?"
Hector: "Coulda been Bolt. Y'shoot lightning at a tree, it's gonna light up like a matchstick."
ORN nods
ORN: "Put enough energy through something and it gets rather hot"
ORN stares at his lance
Pak coughs.
Pak has a feeling that this is all gonna turn out badly.
The elvaan exchange glances. In two minutes, the inn is empty of all save the innkeeper and the party.
The innkeeper sighs.
Pak: "…sorry."
Pak: "Should we go take care of that?"
Hector finishes eating and starts patting Pak on the head.
DwarfInnkeeper: "No worries. 'Least they'd already paid fer their rooms."
Pak: "But… fire."
DwarfInnkeeper: "And nah, I'd let 'em be."
ORN: "???"
DwarfInnkeeper: "What I hear, it'd do 'em some good to see their bogeymen fer what they really are."
DwarfInnkeeper: "If it's out of compassion, so much the better than if 't'were out of fear."
Cassandra_Lionheart nods
Pak: "Hmm."
Pak: "Alright…"
DwarfInnkeeper: "Now, I don' doubt ye've got more savin' t' be doin', right?"
Hector scratches Pak behind his ears.
ORN nods
DwarfInnkeeper: "So get some rest. I'll clean up fer ye down here."
Hector: "We do what we gotta do, they do what they gotta do. Simple as that."
ORN: "Very well."
ORN: "Thank you for the tables."
DwarfInnkeeper: "Yer welcome. Thank ya fer the world t' have tables in."
[OOC] WC GM: 7500 XP for today.
[OOC] Pak: yay.
