EC Session 4.8

Morning, Boltember 2 Gravday.
[OOC] Pak: Lavafish~
At least, you assume it is morning. Being in an inn in a magic-crystalline city suspended over (and partially into) a sea of magma in an underground cavern that stretches to the horizon - and beyond - has messed with your sense of time more than just being underground.
[OOC] WC GM: Yeah, getting to that. ;)
But given the clocks, the general activity level of people outside, and the smells of food that can vaguely be presumed to be breakfast, it seems like it is morning.
[OOC] Sakha: like 20 empty bottles of beer in the kitchen… SAiai if you want Sakha drunk…
[OOC] Pak: Hahaha~
Ahiru wakes up in human form - the amulet having apparently found its way back onto her during the evening.
[OOC] WC GM: And yes, that could happen if you want.
[OOC] ORN: drunk, sober, when doesn't he want her? ^_~
[OOC] Pak: :p
Ahiru yawns and stretches, hopping out of bed.
Hector rolls over and lands face-first on the floor.
[OOC] WC GM: It'd mostly be dwarven ale, of course. Though there could be a bottle or two of near-pure alcohol.
Cassandra_Lionheart yarws and looks up to see ORN looking down at her //"Ughhhh…"
Pak purrs~ and rolls Sakha around on the bed before getting up.
Hector snorts and wakes up at his own noise. "Blllllllltghhhhhhhhhhhhhtttttttthhhhhhhhhhh"
[OOC] Sakha: And what do you mean by that?
While the PCs might or might not be able to read Elvaan, there is an easily-recognized spot, several floors up, where people are setting up some large fishing poles. It looks like they'll be a while before they're ready to fish, though.
Hector pushes himself up with his arms. "…the bed wasn't this color when I went to sleep." He blinks, then realizes that he's on the floor.
[OOC] Pak: I'm not sure. Probably squirming and making her roll over
ORN: "… hm…"
Hector: "Cor blimey. And I didn't wake up when I hit the floor?"
Pak yawwwwwwwwns and stretches.
ORN: "This Unit had some remaining inquiries…"
Felicia yawns as she sits up, wiping some drool from the corner of her mouth.
Cassandra Lionheart: "About what, ORN?"
Hector hoits himself up and starts his morning routine.
Sakha elbows Pak, mumbles and gets up.
Pyrtyr stretches, going through some calisthenics as he rises from bed.
ORN: "… … Boats reminded This Unit of a dwarf's promise. There could potentially be interesting new methods to be found here. Possibly those oversized lances Pyrtyr rode before"
ORN: "Or possibly these mounted weapons in themselves.."
Pak: "…Huh?"
Pak somehow misinterprets what ORN was saying.
Pak: "…You mean learning things?"
ORN shakes head
ORN: "Plasma manipulation is also required. This Unit was refering to the oversized lance Pyrtyr was riding on when we first encountered him."
Cassandra Lionheart: "Oh, right.."
*hops off ORN, and walks towards the exit, thinking it is the bathroom* "Let me get dressed and armored up, and we can go!" *opens the door and walks out*
ORN: "With some sharpening…"
Pak: "Oh… okay."
ORN sparkles and imagines stabbing things with a bloody jetbike
Pyrtyr glances at ORN. "…jetbike is called jetbike."
ORN just stares at him
Felicia rubs her eyes.
Cassandra finds herself facing quite a few passers-by outside.
ORN: "You're like those people that kept insisting the ammunition was food"
More than one looks at her appreciatively.
Hector steps out of his room, yawning.
ORN: "… . ."
Pak walks around, smelling the air~
Pyrtyr: "Food for a cannon, maybe."
Cassandra_Lionheart looks and blinks "Oh my word!!!! WHY DO ALL THE DOOR LOOK THE SAME!" *runs back into the room*
ORN starts picturing himself stabbing a carrot-tipped jetbike into things and watching them explode in the distance
Pak can easily detect half a dozen nearby food preparation sources.
Hector: "Hrrrrrrrrrrrggggggggghhhhhhhhaaaaaaaaaaaaaaahhhh!"
Cassandra_Lionheart rushes into the bathroom, and locks the door
Pyrtyr chuckles. "If you'll excuse me, I need to take care of a few things. You wanted to help out with the fishing, right? I'll see you after that."
With that, he heads out.
Pak spins and heads towards one at random
ORN nods
WC GM rolled 1d6 and got 3 for a total of 3
Pak finds…yellow food.
ORN goes up to see what those lances with rope the people up there are setting up
It smells of scrambled eggs. Looks kind of like them, too.
Pak …
Pak sniff… tries some.
Also spongecake.
Cassandra_Lionheart comes out, equipped and blushing "ORN…why didn't you point me in the right direction?"
The eggs taste like cake. The cake tastes like eggs.
ORN: "… ? ? ? ? ? ?"
Cassandra Lionheart: "I just flashes about 10 people in the foyer!"
Felicia: "…Wah?"
Cassandra_Lionheart is still flustered
ORN: "Bold"
ORN: "This Unit is certain their morning was greatly enhanced."
ORN sparkles and thumbs up
Felicia: "…"
Cassandra Lionheart: "I wnt out the exit, thinking it was the bathroom! "
[OOC] Cassandra Lionheart: went
ORN: "ah? You should be more careful then. There may be laws against using the streets in such a manner."
Pak blinks.
Pak eats more eggcake?
Cassandra_Lionheart looks at ORN "I just woke up…Sue me."
Felicia shakes her head and grabs her stuffs. She heads out. Food time.
The lances seem to be flexible crystal. The rope is crystal twine. All of it sparkles in the hellish red light coming in through the large, terrace-like opening in the wall.
Cassandra_Lionheart gives ORN tap on his shoulder, and shakes her hand in pain.
ORN patpats cassie
ORN: "Sorry."
Hector follows his nose towards the food.
ORN: "Pretty… but… these don't seem particularly effective at stabbing. How do you prevent them from breaking after anchoring them into the target?"
Cassandra_Lionheart looks at ORN and smiles "Forget it. It happens. I'm just hungry."
Pak looks up at the red light… "Mmph?"
Pak climbs up to investigate.
The chef who is serving up Pak's eggcake smiles. "Hey dod. You with Pyrtyr. You from surface?"
Hector breaks off a piece of sponge cake and tastes it.
The sponge cake tastes remarkably like scrambled eggs.
Hector: "Mmph?"
The chef swings his smile from Pak to Hector.
Felicia looks for something that smells less eggy.
Cassandra_Lionheart tries some also.
Hector looks closely at the cake to see if his vision's gone insane or not.
The red light is from the magma outside.
It takes a few seconds to confirm - but, yes, the spongecake tastes like eggs and the eggs taste like spongecake.
Cassandra_Lionheart is confused "Sir…I think the food is wrong."
[OOC] WC GM: Felicia: you mean you're trying the eggs-that-are-cake, or a different place altogether?
Hector rubs his eyes. "Y'know, after I had soup that tasted like a roast beef sandwich, somehow this kind of surprises me less."
[OOC] Felicia: different place
Pak is investigating the fishing spot.
Chef: "What you mean? This recipe from my granpapa."
WC GM rolled 1d5 and got 3 for a total of 3
Hector: "It, uh…"
Cassandra Lionheart: "Well, the eggs tastes like Sponge Cake….and the sponge Cake tastes like eggs?"
Hector: "Where I've been, when I had eggs, they tasted like eggs, and not cake."
Felicia finds green food. Specifically, crisp raw vegetables.
The chef blinks at Cassandra in obvious confusion.
Hector: "It's not a big deal, and I've seen a lot of weird crap in the past month or so."
Hector looks around for other food.
Up above, the would-be fishers are taking out rods, setting up mounts, and affixing the one to the other.
Cassandra Lionheart: "Nevermind sir. As long as we are not eating half dead Viera, I'm fine.
They seem to take little notice of Pak so far.
Felicia decides to give some a try.
ORN stares, curious, and repeats his question to one of the workers
WC GM rolled 1d4 and got 4 for a total of 4
[OOC] WC GM: ORN's gotten to the fishing place now?
Pak hmms. And he's even still in that cute black dress.
ORN went straight there because pyrtyr left busy and the others were gonna find food.
Pak leans over and stares at some equipment. "What's this do…?"
Felicia finds that the cucumber tastes of spinach, and vice versa.
Hector finds purple food. Eggplant - but this at least tastes like what it looks like.
Hector picks up a cucumber and tastes it, just praying it doesn't taste like poo.
[OOC] Hector: okay maybe not.
[OOC] WC GM: Eh. They're near each other.
Felicia: "Everything is backwards…"
Hector also has eggplant and decides that he'd rather eat cucumber.
[OOC] WC GM: You could easily see Felicia and try hers, after you find your spot.
One of the Elvaan looks up at Pak and ORN…and up.
Hector tastes the spinach and discovers it tastes like cucumber. Not exactly the best taste.
Fisherelf: "Oh hai there."
Hector: "The eggs 'n cake are reversed."
Hector: "And apparently that's how it's supposed to taste. o_O"
ORN looks up
ORN: "?"
Cassandra_Lionheart takes some vegtables with her, and walk to see ORN and Pak.
Fisherelf: "This is the fishing spot. We be using strong rods, so they don't break under most fish's weight."
Pak looks up too.
Pak: "Ahh…?"
Apparently, the Elvaan was looking up only at ORN and Pak. The ceiling is unremarkable.
ORN pokes a rod
The rod seems sturdy, though surprisingly flexible.
ORN: "How do you make these lances flexible?"
Hector eats some cake and eggs and cucumbers and is now thirsty.
Cassandra_Lionheart looks at the fishing rod and touces it
ORN: "And why is it affixed to the ship with the rope going the other way? How do you stab the fish?"
Hector looks around for coffee or something.
The Elvaan waggles a finger. "How we make them be trade secret."
Pak is confused…
Fisherelf: "But we don't stab. We hook and bring up. You want help out?"
[OOC] Hector: Shit, the lights are flickering.
Pak: "I wanna help out! n.n"
ORN nods, figuring an opportunity might show itself too
Hector easily finds coffee. Black.
ORN: "Hook?"
[OOC] WC GM: Hmm. Might want to designate someone to dopple if needed, Jeff. There will be combat soon.
Cassandra Lionheart: "Can I help also sir?"
[OOC] Hector: …nah, I think I'm fine.
Felicia eats her fill of weird-food, and goes to investigate the fishing implements.
The Elvaan points to large hooks - the size of Pak's forearm - being attached to the ropes.
ORN: "… … … … but…"
Hector gets himself some coffee and sees if he can at least add some sugar to it. Milk in his coffee's…ew.
ORN stares
Fisherelf: "Sure. We can use help - predicted to be large swarm today."
ORN: "Why so complicated?"
Sugar is likewise easy to find.
ORN: "make hook part of lance. fix rope to ship. Less parts, no?"
Cassandra Lionheart: "Okay, sir…Just tell me what to do."
Hector dumps the equivalent of two tablespoons of sugar in his coffee and drinks it down.
Fisherelf: "Magmafish weaker not in magma. We bring up here, THEN stab."
Hector: "Huh, where'd Sakha go?"
Cassandra_Lionheart nods and listens in
ORN: "Then how do you hook them?"
Sakha shoots an ice dagger at Hector.
Fisherelf: "Put bait on hook. They bite."
ORN: "They do not sound suicidal… the only suicidal foes This Unit has encountered detonated themselves rather than impale themselves upon one's weapon"
ORN: "… hm…"
Pak hmms…
ORN: "… . ."
Fisherelf: "They don't see hook until too late."
Pak shrugs and grins. "Well, I'm still up for it~"
ORN imagines himself letting things come stab themselves, thanks to an innovative piece of meat atop the carrot-tip of that "jetbike" lance
ORN nods
Cassandra Lionheart: "Me also."
ORN: "Genius.."
ORN sparkles brightly
ORN: "Well then. What sort of help do you require?"
Hector goes to check on Pak. "How's it goin', kiddo?"
[OOC] ORN: … Meat, Ballista shell, jetbike… …. …. … rocket-propelled enemy-guiding explosive lance!
[OOC] Hector: terra what happened to you D:
Fisherelf: "Help with reeling in, then help with stabbing."
ORN sparkles even brighter
[OOC] Sakha: ? I'm a little out of it
ORN: "This Unit is very capable at stabbing"
Pak looks over at Hector. "We're gonna fish!"
Cassandra_Lionheart nods, and takes a possition at one of the poles
Pak: "Help us pull it up!"
Felicia blinks.
Just as the Elvaan is about to answer, there is a burst of activity.
Pak eeks!
Fisherelf: "Oh hay good timing. We're just getting started now."
Hector: "Uh, sure."
The fishing crew scrambles to the poles, as the lines are dipped. Each of the five rods vibrates immediately - five bites in under half a minute.
Pak … has weak arms. Thinks about this for a moment.
They strain to try to pull their catches in.
Pak aha!~
[OOC] WC GM: STR checks, anyone who wants to help.
ORN helps

Pak misses the ground - instead hitting the magma.
[OOC] Hector: Fail's better than a botch.
[OOC] Pak: Fail by 10
A large chunk of magma surges up - carrying the remaining two with it.
Unfortunately, it also carries things other than the serpents…
Pak erks!
Cassandra Lionheart: "Pak?"
Hector: "If we're gonna fight these fiery things, man, we could use Sakha's help, that's for damned sure."
The leftover magma washes the poles and the Elvaan away from the action. Fortunately, the party is missed.
Pak erk.
Cassandra Lionheart: "Great."
*pulls out her sword and gets ready to fight*
The serpents flop and writhe and GLARE at the party. So do their escorts…
[OOC] Sakha: (Fine I'll just go completely then if being semi-aware isn't good enough

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.

Cassandra_Lionheart lowers her sword and smiles
Hector cracks his whip and sheaths it.
The Elvaan finally get back to the terrace. "Jo ROXXORED THEM!"
Pak yays~
Sakha is Frosty.
Pak hugs Sakha. "Thanks, sis~!"
Cassandra Lionheart: "Yeah..whatever you said."
Felicia sheathes her sword and rubs her neck. "Gee."
ORN nods
ORN: "As stated. This Unit, and group, are excellent at stabbing."
ORN sparkles and bows
Cassandra Lionheart: "Yeah.."
The Elvaan quickly get to dismantling the catches - serpents and grenades. They come up with 1 Wolf Mantle, 3 Hi-Ethers, 1 Hi-Potion, 2 Bomb Cores, and 2 Bomb Fragments for the party.
Hector chuckles nervously. "Y'know, I'm still not used to these kinds of accolades."
Hector takes the HIgh Potion to replace the one he used.
Also, 3375 Gil each.
Cassandra_Lionheart looks at thw Wolf Mantle.
Felicia grabs a single Hi-Ether.
Pak looks at wolf mantle…
[OOC] WC GM: And 7643 XP each.
[OOC] Hector: 15 Eva, 9 MEva for Wolf Mantle.
Felicia blinks at the Wolf Mantle.
Pak shrugs. "I don't need it."
[OOC] Hector: I have one equipped. :3
Felicia: "…Bwuh"
Felicia: "Where did that come from?"
Cassandra Lionheart: "Oh..I don't need it."
ORN grabs one high-ether
One of the Elvaan points to Fire Serpent D.
Pak: "I'll take it for later."
Felicia: "…"
Pak stores it.
Hector: "It ATE the cape?"
Felicia: "But… Lava fish."
On close inspection, the "Wolf" mantle seems to be made of fine scales.
Pak doesn't take any other items.
Felicia: "…Hm."
Cassandra Lionheart: "I'll just restock in town..I have no magic anymore."
ORN patpats
Felicia looks over her own armor. "Maybe I can get something made of these things."
ORN: "Worry not. Drinking potions all the time is likely ill-suited to one's health."
1 Hi-Ether, 2 Bomb Cores, and 2 Bomb Fragments remain.
Pak takes the Bomb stuff
Ahiru takes the Hi-ether
Quite a few of the Elvaan are looking cautiously at Sakha.
Sakha: "What're you staring at?"
Elvaan: "You used the loser arts!"
Hector is sure to be standing behind Sakha.
Cassandra Lionheart: "Hold on guys…she is fine here, okay?"
ORN stands in front of her, smashes his fists together and goes dark
More of the Elvaan gather, grumbling and staring.
Sakha: "Who you calling a loser, loser, I kicked that thing's butt."
Pak: "T_T"
Pak: "Sakha's not a loser!"
ORN: " "
loser arts" from those who ran at the sight of these things."
Pak stomps his foot.
Cassandra_Lionheart stands in front of Sahka "Get away or I'll turn you all into Elvaan ki-bobs!" ((intimidation?))
ORN: "You may wish to re-evaluate your own levels of competance before judging others"
Elvaan: "We got washed away, jo! We got back as soon as we could!"
[OOC] WC GM: Sure, but at a penalty.
Cassandra Lionheart rolled 1d100 and got 26 for a total of 26
Cassandra's display stops a couple of Elvaan who had been going for their weapons.
ORN powers up a lightning ball in his left claw and waits for those who haven't stopped to move
The Elvaan gradually begin to disperse, taking the bodies with them.
Hector: "Hmph. Well, can't expect everyone to like us all the time."
Cassandra_Lionheart sighs and looks back to Sahka
[OOC] Hector: brb 10+ minute toilet break.
ORN: "… Fishermen… are pathetic."
Felicia: "Theyre just not used to seeing magic, remember?"
Pak: "Yeah, but still…"
Cassandra Lionheart: "Ice magic specifically it seems."
Felicia: "…well that's pretty much what she does. But yes."
ORN: "Too set in their ways. Weakens them. Makes them fearful. Hostile."
Cassandra_Lionheart nods with ORN
Felicia: "Though my use of such didnt seem to bother them."
[OOC] Aerdan: Fear leads to anger. Anger leads to hate. Hate leads to the Dark Side. Or something.
Sakha: "You're magic resembles their 'leet roxxor combat moves'. They never even knew Pyrtyr used magic."
[OOC] WC GM: So, when they go to the moon, the final guide to lead them to the dark side of it should be named Hate? :P
[OOC] ORN: Closed mind leads to fear. Fear is weakness. Weakness leads to lynch mobs… and Lynch mobs… lead to 5000 dead civillians and a statue.
[OOC] Aerdan: haha :P
Pak looks around.
Pak: "…That wasn't as fun as I thought."
Pak: "Come on, let's go meet Pyrtyr and learn stuff."
Pyrtyr appears behind Pak.
Cassandra Lionheart: "True, we need to find him."
Pyrtyr: "Or I need to find you."
Cassandra_Lionheart blinks "Nevermind."
Pyrtyr: "I heard what happened."
Pyrtyr: "Sorry about that. They…are proud of having chased their mages away."
Felicia: "Quite."
Cassandra Lionheart: "We are sorry, but they were going to kill her."
ORN: "Sounds familiar, somehow…"
Pak: "They might not have, but…"
Pyrtyr: "It seems I must impose on you for some help."
Pak: "Oh? What's the problem?"
ORN: "But in any case, This Unit would have annihilated them for the greater good."
ORN: "Hm?"
Pyrtyr sighs, suddenly looking older. "There are some who celebrate the exile of the mages by seeking to destroy what of their knowledge remains."
Pyrtyr: "I thought I had put an end to this, but they have of late been making a resurgence."
ORN: "Chaos has had no difficulties in spreading with recent events."
Pyrtyr: "There remains a library - one of our foremost cultural heritages - which they seek to destroy."
Pak: "A… a library?"
Pyrtyr nods. "Hard to believe it still exists, I know."
ORN: "… The place with all the learning stuff?"
ORN grabs his spear and nods
ORN: "Lead the way."
Pak: "I like Libraries!"
Pak: "Let's see what they've got."
Pak grins. "Maybe I'll discover my Lost Art1"
Pyrtyr: "If you care to read, you are welcome to. But I also need your aid in planning its defence."
[OOC] Pak: *!
Pyrtyr leads the group to a familiar floating elevator.
Hector: "Defense, huh."
Cassandra_Lionheart nods "anything to help you Pyrtyr, sir."
Cassandra_Lionheart gets on the elevator
Hector: "Once I take a look at it, I can start planning."
Trombe is already on the elevator platform.
[OOC] Hector: hi im hack
[OOC] WC GM: ?
ORN: "… This Unit's strength is still somewhat depleted, but masses of weaker opponents should be no issue nevertheless."
[OOC] Hector: I said I was going afk.
[OOC] WC GM: Ah.
[OOC] WC GM: I thought someone named "hacK" had taken over your keyboard. :P
[OOC] Hector: dammit i can't type today
Pak nyuhuhuhu.
A brief elevator ride leads to the top of the city.
Pak: "Oh, Pyrtyr, did you watch us fight?"
Pyrtyr: "No. How was it?"
Pak: "Oh…"
ORN: "Simple."
Pak: "Well, I used my special summoning skill."
Pak: "I wanted to know if you knew anything about it."
ORN: "… Speaking of which… Where does one go about obtaining the heavy lance you rode when we first encountered you, and do they carry any additional weaponry?"
Pyrtyr: "Humm? Special summoning?"
Pak: "Yeah."
Pak does a Moogle Reels.
Pak rolled 1d10 and got 3 for a total of 3
Pak rolled 1d100 and got 10 for a total of 10
Pak rolled 1d100 and got 93 for a total of 93
Pak makes the moogles dance again!
Felicia: "…Special, yeah."
Pyrtyr: "I…see. I'd ask the Mogri about it."
Pyrtyr points upwards.
Pak: "…Oh."
Hector: "Those little guys sure like to dance. o_O"
Pak: "Well, it doesn't just summon Mogs."
Pak flicks another coin.
Pak rolled 1d100 and got 66 for a total of 66
ORN: "Shapely females also."
Pak rolled 1d10 and got 5 for a total of 5
[OOC] Sakha: Am I the only one thinking of the movie "Idiocracy" right now?
Pak rolled 1d100 and got 41 for a total of 41
Pyrtyr looks at ORN. "As to jetbikes - there's a shop on the lower levels here, if you really want. I've never heard of them carrying weaponry, but you sound like you know a way to customize them."
Pak spawns a bunch of mini-paks that all run around in a circle.
ORN: "… This Unit simply thought that a weapon mounted on a weapon could prove interesting. However This Unit does know a dwarf…"
Cassandra Lionheart: "Pak!"
*looks* "awww, they got you suit on now."
Hector leans sideways against Trombe.
Hector: "It's not even lunchtime and already we got our daily workout."
Pak flicks one more coin for fun.
Pak rolled 1d100 and got 97 for a total of 97
[OOC] Pak: I keep rolling in the wrong order. T<T
Pak rolled 1d10 and got 4 for a total of 4
Cassandra Lionheart: "Here!"
*tosses Hector a vegtable*
Pak rolled 1d100 and got 97 for a total of 97
ORN: "No worries. A second warm-up may occur soon"
Hector doesn't bother catching it.
At length, the elevator arrives at the top floor.
Pak rolled 1d10 and got 4 for a total of 4
[OOC] Hector: wtf, pak
Pak watches icicles fall someplace out in the lava field.
Cassandra_Lionheart blinks and sighs
Pak: "So you don't know anything about those skills?"
Pyrtyr: "They seem a bit…random."
Felicia joins in the inquiry of Pyrtyr. "Hm. Perhaps you know of some place I could get some armor fitting done?"
Pak: "Yeah. And they cost money…"
Pak: "I just wanna know how to get better at using them!"
Pak: "…Well, I'll look around at the library."
Pyrtyr: "I would reccomend Mignon Lilas, had her shop not been destroyed. Despite her obsession, she's one of our best armorsmiths."
Felicia: "Also… show how you do that conjuring of plasma again, later."
Pyrtyr: "Of course."
ORN nods
Cassandra_Lionheart looks to Felicia and giggles a bit "Your going to look cute!"
ORN: "Further methods of self-manipulation could enhance This Unit's abilities"
Hector hits his palm with his fist.
Pyrtyr: "There are quite capable smiths here, however."
Pyrtyr leads the party into the top floor - which is actually a 3 story warehouse of printed material.
Pak: "!!"
Pak ooooooooOOOOOOooooo
All of the books seem to be thin sheets of metal and rock. No paper is to be seen.
Hector: "Hm."
Hector looks around.
Pak: "Sakha! Tell me if you see anything related to magic or gambling!"
Hector rolled 1d100 and got 43 ( Total: 43 )
ORN looks around
Pak runs into the library and looks around!
Cassandra Lionheart: "Talk about keeping a hard copy of things.."
ORN: "These will nevertheless require defense"
[OOC] Hector: Tactics roll passed by 42, to see how defensible this place can be.
ORN: "Will you allow This Unit to attempt to assimilate the area?"
Pak soon finds the magic section - about half of the library.
Hector takes a look at the stairs to see how wide they are, how far down they lead, etc.
Sakha peruses the materials randomly keeping plasma, food, gambling and randomness as her key focuses of study.
[OOC] ORN: get us a tally of the entrances and exits, etc hector… we'll want to close some off
[OOC] Sakha: Should I roll inquiry?
Hector goes to check the elevator again.
Hector: "Hm."
Hector walks over to Pyrtyr. "Hey, is there anything above this library?"
Hector: "As in, where your people'd want to actually go."
Pak oooh… <3
[OOC] WC GM: Sakha: no need - unless you want to roll at +80.
Pak pokes about!
ORN waits for Pyrtyr's ok to give it a shot
Pyrtyr: "I would rather this library remain intact."
[OOC] Sakha: probably not necessary then :P 180 CoS ha
[OOC] WC GM: Exactly. ;)
Felicia looks around, briefly scanning for things of interest as she goes along.
Hector: "So do we, but someone who wants to get rid of it might try to attack from above."
ORN: "It will. This Unit promises not to consume. This Unit does so only for purposes of mass maintenence anyways."
Cassandra_Lionheart is looking around, maybe trying to find something on her family, and ORN.
Pyrtyr: "Hmm…above? Not unless they were trying to get to the surface - and I've never heard of anyone doing so."
Hector: "Otherwise, we've got two elevators and stairways as the ways to this area, and it looks like there's only one door into the place."
ORN: "… agility comes at somewhat of a grinding cost _;"
Hector: "However, considering how high this is, it might get drilled into from below."
Cassandra's search is in vain. Those who wrote the books here had never heard of her family or of anything like ORN.
ORN: "This Unit has never attempted this, but could at least shrink entrances and exits, potentially know of incoming breaching attempts before battle begins."
Sakha soon finds entire shelves on the art of "pyroformation" - making things from plasma.
[OOC] Sakha: so what do I uncover?
Hector: "How easily could someone make a replacement elevator if we destroyed it or otherwise moved it somewhere they couldn't access it?"
ORN: "Assuming the pain isn't too unbearable when they blow a wall…"
A few of the shelves specifically detail making food from it.
Cassandra_Lionheart smiles "Maybe I can live here afer all. I won't be bothered by family trying to…kick me out of town."
Pak looks around for stuff about gambling, summoning, etc etc.
Sakha studies in detail, taking her own personal notes.
Pyrtyr: "Replacement elevator? Hmm…not hard at all, if you know the enchantments. Possible for the jetbike manufacturers, though they're a bit set in their spells - so they don't have to think of it as magic. Might be hard for them to think of making replacements."
[OOC] Pak: Since I don't have Inquiry as a skill, but it's defaultable, isn't it?
[OOC] WC GM: Yes. You can roll - might even critlearn.
Hector: "Alright. We should move the elevators somewhere, then. If they don't take the hint and make new ones, that'll leave the stairs as the only ways in."
Felicia sees that Sakha has found the plasma section. She'll look into that later. For now she looks for anything resembling her form of swordplay; She's never seen it given a formal name.
ORN shrugs at Pyrtyr's lack of enthusiasm, and starts going around punching into walls that have windows, to try and seal the openings
Pak rolled 1d100 and got 71 for a total of 71
Hector: "Hey, Orn!"
ORN will worry about learning AFTER the learning can be kept safe
[OOC] Pak: Well, I think that's still a pass with +80 anyway
ORN: "?"
Hector: "How easy would it be for you to disable these staircases? I want to leave one entrance that they'll probably use in order to bottleneck their forces."
[OOC] WC GM: You don't have +80 - you're not looking as broadly. It's more of a bare pass for you.
[OOC] Pak: Oh.
ORN: "Additional mass will be required to seal most alternate entrances… Would the staircases be acceptable?"
Hector: "Ah!"
[OOC] Pak: Well… My default is…
Hector: "Use the elevators!"
Hector: "Is that massive enough for you?"
ORN nods and goes to find one
[OOC] Pak: 30, so
Pyrtyr: "I don't think we could get away with shutting down the city."
Hector: "The fewer ways in they have, the better."
Pyrtyr: "That would provoke a larger reaction. The idea is to defend against the assault, then discredit so no further assault will happen."
Hector: "We could also disable the two staircases and just one elevator."
ORN: "This Unit will shut down far more than cities some day. Reinitialising them will make good practice. Its just a little taste >.>"
Pyrtyr: "If I *am*…to retire…I need this dealt with permanently."
ORN: "Enough to cover a window or four"
ORN: "… maybe a door"
ORN ».» «.«».»
Cassandra_Lionheart looks "How about a moat?"
[OOC] WC GM: Felicia can try Inquiry as well. Small bonus, again.
ORN: "They could swim through."
Hector: "If at the very least, we could somehow shore up the other three walls of this place so that going through the front area would be better, that would also work."
Felicia rolled 1d100 and got 9 ( Total: 9 )
[OOC] Felicia: …Hm.
Hector: "A moat? How about a wall of ice?"
[OOC] WC GM: That's a critlearn.
Cassandra Lionheart: "Even Better!"
ORN: "All changes will be relatively temporary"
Sakha also expands her research to include the making of other materials from plasma…
Hector: "Really thick walls of ice."
[OOC] WC GM: Your default is 9; you had a small bonus.
Cassandra Lionheart: "That could do it."
[OOC] Felicia: Yup :p
Hector: "Is a wall of ice too much of a public relations disaster? We can take it down with no problems."
Felicia eventually finds a picture book with some VERY familiar practice exercises.
Hector: "I just want this place to be as secure as we can make it, and also so we fight on as few fronts as possible."
ORN: "Just shield minor entrances. These could also be placed within rather than outside, impeding progress."
Pak looks through lots of books…
It is written in Elvaan - not a problem for her. The title: "Magic Knight Exercises, Beginner Tier".
ORN: "This Unit will obtain a handful of stairs for such measures"
Hector: "Alright, Orn. Do that."
ORN nods and walks off, having made up his mind ten minutes ago anyways about the banquet
Hector: "Now all we have to do is convince Sakha to actually make the ice walls."
Cassandra Lionheart: "Yeah."
Cassandra_Lionheart looks for Sakha
Pyrtyr: "Reinforcing the library should not be a problem. Few people come here these days."
Hector: "Don't worry about her, now."
Hector: "Cass, go keep an eye on Orn and make sure he doesn't consume too much and pass out."
Cassandra Lionheart: "okay."
*skids to a stop* "Yeah."
Felicia perks, and flips through the book. Maybe she can use it when they get back to Refuge to train more Knights…
Cassandra_Lionheart rushes after ORN then!
Cassandra Lionheart: "ORN? Brother? Where are you?"
[OOC] WC GM: RL be calling. I need to wrap things up for today soon.
[OOC] Sakha: I wonder if I could like critlearn lore plasma with this research…
[OOC] Hector: no worries.
ORN: "A little for This Unit… a little for windowframe…"
ORN: "A little for This Unit… a little for wall…"
Cassandra_Lionheart taps ORN on the back
ORN: "!"
ORN: "This Unit is helping ».»"
Cassandra Lionheart: "Borther, what are you doing?"
[OOC] WC GM: Actually, there is enough here to allow for Inquiry rolls to pick up new Lores, if you spend a few days at it.
[OOC] Pak: I wanted to learn Invent.
ORN: "… reinforcing walls and sealing window frames!"
[OOC] Sakha: Can we? <3
[OOC] Pak: But I don't know it IC
Cassandra_Lionheart taps her foot on the ground and looks
[OOC] Pak: D:
ORN has a few things he plans on looking up and learning, though he wants to seal the place up real quick first.
[OOC] WC GM: Hmm…regular skills may be possible as well. We can discuss those outside the session.
[OOC] Sakha: I need more lores, I only have languages the rest are maxed
Cassandra Lionheart: "What are you eating?"
[OOC] Hector: I want to make custom weapons!
[OOC] Hector: So I'll need to get that skill somehow. D:
[OOC] Felicia: gogo 100 Weaponsmithing
ORN: "… This Unit is only temporarily assimilating the emergency staircase over there in order to use the mass on the remaining exits within this room."
[OOC] Felicia: Just need to pick up a tool and some time :p
[OOC] Hector: Or perhaps some kind of explosive-crafting.
Ahiru looks for books about pendants and artifacts
[OOC] Hector: So I'm like a Bomb Knight from Castlevania. :3
[OOC] Felicia: But you use silly whips which are like… tinkering
Cassandra_Lionheart sighs "As long as it doesn't destroy the place! And you get blamed!" *she pokes him in the stomach*
ORN: "This Unit swears that at least 80% of the accumulated mass is added to the structure"
[OOC] Hector: My explosives skill is 38. I've been too busy working on my weapons and awareness.
Pak peeks about
ORN sinks another centimeter into the ground as he says that
[OOC] Felicia: Also need a lava boat that I can ride into the danger zone
[OOC] Ahiru: Should I roll inquiry for looking up my subject?
[OOC] WC GM: Yes.
Ahiru rolled 1d100 and got 80 ( Total: 80 ) **
Cassandra Lionheart: "ORN? Just make sure it is thick enough!"
Ahiru finds books on enchantment, but nothing quite in the style of her amulet is depicted.
[OOC] ORN: lances don't go far enough. Jetbikes = rocket powered lances. Jetbikes with reinforced fronts and beam cannons in the nose = rocket-powered beam lances. ORN's got ambition, so he wants them books safe.
Ahiru keeps looking.
Felicia looks for more picture books, or anything really, related to what she just found.
[OOC] ORN: After all, one needs an appropriate weapon to take over a moon or two
[OOC] ORN: … what is it with my weekend games and characters getting forced into world-domination schemes?
Felicia finds the picture book was shelved with a series of other training material. Now that she knows the key words to look for in titles, they are easy to identify.
[OOC] Ahiru: It's just you. Just you
Pak finds the books on magic seem to all depict orderly, learned progressions.
They almost feel like an imposition of order on a chaotic world.
Cassandra Lionheart: "Hey ORN…I wanted to ask you something."
Pak …
ORN nods
Pak hmphs…
Sakha takes manuscripts out for more detailed perusal.
Pak looks away. "This isn't anything like me…"
Pak: "How am I supposed to get better at gambling?"
Cassandra Lionheart: "The reason why you love me…did my father impart that love to you?"
[OOC] ORN: cheating, of course, pak
ORN: "?"
Cassandra Lionheart: "I mean imprint, into your memory banks."
Pak: "I need something more…"
ORN: "This Unit is unsure of the term to be honest. It is used rather liberally. This Unit certainly cares for members of This Group, but the Series was not enforced into caring for things."
ORN: "… except the original prototypes…. That… did not go so well This Unit was told."
Cassandra Lionheart: "I see."
*looks down* "I miss him you know."
Pak: "Different."
Pak delves into research. It'll probably take a while.
ORN patpats, keeping other arm in the wall
ORN: "This Unit cares for all friendlies and neutrals."
Hector checks on Pak.
Felicia looks over to Pak after grabbing more material. "Well, how did you start doing it in the first place?"
Pak: "…I dunno."
Cassandra Lionheart: "Thanks…brother."
*a tear runs down her cheek*
Pak: "I just…"
ORN: "This Series was taught to protect friendlies, neutrals and innocents with what was deemed "
excessive violence". This ensures their happiness and safety."
Pak: "I'm not even sure. o.o"
Felicia: "…Hm."
Pak hmphs.
Hector pats Pak on the head.
ORN: "This Unit wishes for nothing more than the safety of all through applied genocidal outbursts. This includes you."
Hector: "Just keep at it. You'll be successful."
Felicia: "Well… It was the same way with me and…"
She checks the cover of one of the books. "…Sword Magic?"
Felicia: "So don't feel bad. There's probably something related to it somewhere."
ORN: "When all hostiles are eliminated, the pursuit of happiness can continue unhindered."
Pak: "Well, I'll go look around…
Cassandra_Lionheart looks at ORN with a startled look "ooookkkaaayyy…Awkward."//
[OOC] WC GM: RL's calling a bit more loudly. Mind if I log end for now?
[OOC] Pak: K.
[OOC] Cassandra Lionheart: ok
[OOC] WC GM: Don't worry about HP/MP - you'll recover that near start of next session.
