EC Session 5.1

Morning, Boltember 3 Gravday.
Trombe has carried the party through the night. Unfortunately, its jet engines were not very useful in navigating the forest.
However, this has given you a good view of the inner moon - which now glows slightly red along the bottom where it skims the atmosphere.
Hector: "Huh. Well, looks too close to blow up now, so I guess the best thing to do would be to shove it backwards and kick the ass of whatever's pushing it forwards."
[OOC] Eric Lionheart: Am I with the party?
The volcanos underneath it seem to erupt with a bit more force as it passes.
[OOC] WC GM: Yes.
Eric_Lionheart hmms and looks at the moon, frowning.
A burst of static erupts from Hector's pocket.
Cassandra_Lionheart notices, but is still looking at Eric with a vacant stare.
ORN: "This Unit would strongly recomend against spending a large amount of time seeking the other spirits. Assuming it will not already be too late, the elimination of another will guarantee Grav's success in the matter."
Hector: "Whaaa!"
Cassandra Lionheart: "Yeah…"
Cassandra_Lionheart gets up and walks towards Eric and taps his shoulder
There is not far to //"walk" on Trombe's back.
ORN looks over at eric
ORN: "Destroyer. This Unit would recomend a demonstration of your arts upon This Unit. external energy reserves are currently drained, and greater firepower may be required soon."
Pak looks over at Hector.
Pak: "…What was that?"
ORN: "… ?"
Eric_Lionheart blinks and looks at Cassandra. "I'm not a destroyer…but alright…"
Another burst of static from Hector's pocket, and then a muffled voice.
Eric_Lionheart casts a good old fashioned Cure on ORN. He still can't figure out what the hell ORN is.
Hector looks in his pocket.
Sakha sits around reviewing notes.
ORN just stares blankly
ORN: "You are not a 'white' mage?"
Hector: "Did I put something in here and then forget about it?"
Eric Lionheart: "I'm a White Mage…we aren't known for destroying things, though…"
Hector digs up the long-forgotten transceiver from the Volcannon control station.
ORN stares blankly, would do so even more if that was actually possible
Hector: "Well whaddya know."
Sakha: "If anyone is doing destruction… it's me…"
she comments absently.
Aerie's voice comes from said transceiver.
Eric_Lionheart stares back.
ORN: "This Unit has seen this magic at work."
Cassandra Lionheart: "What are you doing here? This is too dangerous. Even all the white magic you know isn't going to help out ith what we are doing."
* she then glares* "I still think your here to do something to me. Don't get me worng, Eric. i know your family, but right now, I don't trust it."
Pak: "Underground."
Aerie: "I've been trying to track you, but you just disappeared!"
Hector presses the button to talk. "We've, uh…been a bit busy underground, with…Pyr and stuff."
Aerie: "…oh. That would explain it."
Felicia: "Quite."
Aerie: "We're doing what we can to keep that moon up."
Eric Lionheart: "Well…I can call forth powerful winds and holy magic, but I doubt you'd want those cast on you…and cousin, I assure you, I am not here to do anything to you."
Aerie: "It's trying to decelerate from orbit. Aer is pushing it forward, re-accelerating it."
ORN: "Those may be preferable. In addition to absorbtion, This Unit requires practice with methods to reform damage on helpers"
Aerie: "Not sure how much time we can buy you like this, so hurry up!"
[OOC] Sakha: don't you mean like the other way around?
ORN stares over at the radio
[OOC] Pak: Nah, it's in orbit.
Pak: "Also, yay!"
Pak: "Aer is actually HELPING!"
Cassandra_Lionheart frowns "I hope so. Because right now, this is bigger than anything, and I can't have mom stop me from helping in any way we can!"
Felicia: "That's new."
Hector: "Huh."
[OOC] WC GM: Orbit =‘`=`` speed. Go fast, you’re in orbit. Go slow or stop, you fall.
[OOC] Hector: Essentially, if it stops "falling" around the earth, it's going to fall ON the earth.
ORN: "… That is not surprising. The impact could easily shear off most of Aer's self"
[OOC] Eric Lionheart: Spoiler in the event the latter happens: You die.
Aerie: "Not like Aer wants to, but if that thing hits, there won't be anything for Aer to be the spirit OF."
ORN: "Unlike Gaia, it is most disadvantageous to Aer's survival, as with, most likely, Mer."
Pak: "Oh, that's true…"
Eric_Lionheart looks at Cassandra. "Could you at least tell me all about your adventures, so I have some idea what is going on?"
Cassandra_Lionheart hears that and sighs "Well, Aer is thinking of survival of its self. Kind of Selfish, but what ever."
ORN: "Please inform Aer that there is no reason for This Group to threaten his existance if he is on This Group's side in matters of preventing impact."
Pak: "We should go see if Mer would help us!"
Hector: "If Aer's currently on our side, I think our next target, as it were, is going to be Mer, so we can make with the steam engine."
ORN: "This Group will provide him with assistance."
Aerie: "There's a lot of storm activity, all over the northern hemisphere. Almost as if Mer is at war with itself and Aer."
ORN: "… Mer's suppression would increase grav's hold on the situation."
Cassandra_Lionheart looks at Eric "So, what news has gone around of me through the family since I left? Did mom tell everybody I lost my magic power?"
Eric_Lionheart nods. "Yes, she did. Didn't say how, though."
ORN: "Much of Mer is held within Aer. Why would Mer attempt to aid Grav and ensure devastating evaporation?"
Pak: "Oh…"
Pak: "It must be confused, poor thing."
Eric Lionheart: "If she did, I wasn't paying attention. I got kinda tired of hearing the insults after awhile."
Pak: "We'll have to go help it. Possibly with explosions."
Hector: "Hard to say, but we've somehow gotta get a hold of water power to make the steam engine if we're gonna be airbone, y'know."
Cassandra Lionheart: "ORN…kind of used took it from me. I opened some type of power within him."
ORN: "Would Sakha not be capable of providing large amounts of water in mer's stead?"
ORN turns to Sakha
Eric_Lionheart nods. "Well, it seems like you fared well with the loss of such power at least…you seem even stronger now without it."
Sakha pours a deluge on ORN.
Aerie: "I might be able to help you with the storms, from time to time, but you're on your own for the most part. …and why are you heading southwest?"
ORN: "You seem happiest raining destruction upon the unweary"
[OOC] Eric Lionheart: lawl at one important and one unimportant discussion going on at the same time.
ORN nods
ORN shakes some off and sparkles brilliantly from the rest
Pak: "We have to go underground again into a big tunnel."
ORN: "The largest deluge you have ever created!"
Eric_Lionheart looks at Sakha. "You are some sort of Black Mage, right?"
Cassandra_Lionheart blushes at the remark "I guess. But I am just part of this team. I am happy this way right now."
Felicia: "…"
Sakha looks up at him. "I study all forms of magic, but I do prefer Black."
Aerie: "…whatever. Just get up there and do something about it. It's bothering Aer, and right now we DON'T want the distraction. Aerie out."
Pak: "God it."
ORN: "Should Mer have gone insane, this will be a problem"
Eric_Lionheart nods. "I've observed alot of different kinds of magic and read about many more."
Cassandra Lionheart: "Right ORN. So lets just get going and figure out what to do!"
Eric Lionheart: "Well, even if my cousin doesn't seem to want me to be here, I'll come with you guys…seems like the world is at stake."
Eric Lionheart: "If you'll have me, of course."
Cassandra_Lionheart closes my eyes "I didn't mean that, Eric. I am just very weary right now. I saw my mother in Refure a while back."
ORN: "Find Dwarves. Create largest ballista in existance. Fire This Unit at the moon. Give This Unit several weeks and enough damage to perform full integration with it. The only remaining issue will be how to make it stab at Grav's avatar without damaging this world."
[OOC] Riia: So ORN is Legann now?
Hector scratches his nose. "I've got no complaints. What about you guys? He's got a good pedigree, bein' a Lionheart without 'is head stuck up his ass."
Eric Lionheart: "…You want…to…be shot at…the moon…?"
[OOC] ORN: well he's got ambitions
Eric_Lionheart seems utterly baffled.
Sakha: "I tend to ignore what he says as it's mainly insane."
Felicia: "…That may be a bit much, ORN."
Pak: "My magic is very hard to learn anything about~"
ORN: "The Largest Buffet This Unit has ever witnessed, coupled with extreme violence and safety and joy for all."
ORN stares
Cassandra Lionheart: "Of course I want Eric here."
*looks down, and hugs him* "I'm sorry."
ORN: "Do YOU not wish to consume it?"
[OOC] Eric Lionheart: Tactics check to see if ORN's plan is remotely viable?
Eric_Lionheart blushes a bit at the hug.
[OOC] Hector: I could do one, too.
[OOC] ORN: probably not with the timeframe we have before its too late, by a few months
[OOC] WC GM: Sure, if you want. Bonus for Hector, because he's already met the complication.
Eric Lionheart rolled 1d100 and got 43 ( Total: 43 ) **
Hector rolled 1d100 and got 59 ( Total: 59 )
[OOC] Eric Lionheart: fail by 3. The white mage isn't exactly a expert with tactics.
[OOC] Hector: Pass 32.
Sakha: "You just don't apply to learning, if you did it'd make more sense. Really!"
Hector: "It'd be a hell of a complex situation. I don't think we could just shoot Orn there and be done with it."
Pak: "Yeah…"
Hector: "For one, we've got the Idiot Trio to worry about, still, and there's probably a helluva lotta defense 'round the moon."
Cassandra Lionheart: "ORN…You wouldn't be able to eat it all anyways…"
Pak: "I mean, ORN usually just slags off whatever he can't handle."
Hector: "If we did go there, we'd all have to go together."
Pak: "So then we'd just have a huge pile of incoming crystal chunks."
Cassandra_Lionheart nods
Eric Lionheart: "Umm…well…I'm not really sure the plan would work, but at the same time, I have no idea what you people can do either."
Sakha is annoyed at being ignored by Pak.
Pak hms?
[OOC] Pak: I got DCed. ;_;
ORN: "Simple. This group can perform any act of violence required to bring happiness and safety to neutrals and friendlies"
[OOC] WC GM: Sakha's comment was after you re-Ced.
Eric Lionheart: "Any act?"
ORN: "Any act imaginable is possible for This Group, destroyer."
[OOC] Pak: Oh, I thought it was aimed at ORN.
Hector puts his hand on Eric's shoulder. "Don't worry 'bout it, man. Not everythin' Orn says is totally worthwhile, and I think he's a bit too literal at times, y'know what I mean."
Cassandra_Lionheart shakes her head "ORN, these acts of violence are some times acts of self-defence."
Pak looks over at Sakha. "Hmph…"
Eric Lionheart: "F..for the last time, I'm not a destroyer. It goes against the whole White Mage thing."
Pak: "At least it's not just ice and water all the time! >x<"
Eric Lionheart: "It's kinda why Cassandra got disowned, though I didn't support that."
Cassandra_Lionheart luaghs a bit "Eric is a real good healer, ORN."
Sakha casts a lightning bolt at Pak.
ORN: "This Unit has experienced your magics first hand. Sakha heals. White mages destroy. This Unit now destroys"
ORN: "Although Sakha prefers not to heal."
Cassandra_Lionheart stops and shrugs her shoulders "They think I am running chopping things up?"
Eric Lionheart: "…I think I need to teach you more about White Magic. You obviously don't know much about it…"
ORN nods proudly at cassie
Eric Lionheart: "Well, your mother does. The others seem a bit iffy on believing it."
Pak zapped. D:
Pak grrrs!
Eric Lionheart: "And I haven't seen Sakha heal much yet either…"
Sakha freezes ORN for the being a healer comment
Pak uses Gravity to flip up Sakha's skirt.
ORN breaks out of the frost after a minute
ORN: "Indeed. Sakha prefers not to."
Felicia sighs at the magic shenanigans.
Hector is currently not looking at Sakha, so he can't catch a glimpse of the upskirt.
Eric_Lionheart blinks as the group starts fighting, and blushes as Sakha's skirt gets blown up.
Sakha eeks and turns red, glaring murder at Pak.
Cassandra_Lionheart gives Eric a blank stare "My god. She really is twisting…" *sees the choas* "STOP THIS NOW OR I'LL CUT YOU ALL OPEN!":
Eric_Lionheart uses Aero to blow the skirt back down for Sakha.
Pak sticks his tongue out. "Your fault for zapping me~"
ORN sparkles and hugs the angry cold one then nods at Cassie
ORN: "Very well."
Sakha: "YOUR fault for saying all I can do is use Water and Ice!"
[OOC] Eric Lionheart: * The group runs out of MP before getting to the boss due to infighting.
ORN: "This Unit was simply happy at being surrounded by multiple destroyers. Learning is always an amusing and enlightening experience"
Cassandra Lionheart: "Everybody! Please…We are still wound up from this ordeal! Cool off!"
ORN points to self, a few icicles still hanging off
Trombe: "Western temple ahead."
Hector leans back. "Yeah, guys. Take five."
ORN: "Done!"
Pak grrs.
Hector: "Maybe not. No rest for us, huh."
Sakha: "If you SAY so Cassie."
She summons up a VERY cold wind.
The forest thins ahead, and sure enough, a temple very similar to the one visited weeks ago appears ahead.
Pak hmphs. Sits apart from Sakha. "Not allowed to say anything to you… All you do is get mad or annoyed… grumblegrumble…"
Hector pats Pak on the head.
Eric_Lionheart shivers in the cold.
Cassandra Lionheart: "Yeah."
*my begins to freeze* "Sakha! Please. Lower the attitude, please. And save your mana reserve!"
Sakha: "I can look after myself, thank you very much!
No one is around, and the temple seems to have chipped in places, dusty and neglected.
Pak: "I never said you couldn't!"
Cassandra_Lionheart blinks and sighs
Pak: "But just because you can take care of yourself doesn't mean you gotta be a jerk to everyone!"
Eric_Lionheart sighs at the same time.
Felicia: "Knock it off or I'll silence you both."
[OOC] Pak: Catfight again. >_>
Eric Lionheart: "Alright, lets settle down for a moment people."
ORN: "One needs not be incapable of taking care of themselves to have aid. This Unit will gladly protect This Group ."
ORN sparkles and drips a bit
[OOC] WC GM: So how long 'til you reach the Mithran war room? ;)
Hector: "Actually, Pak has a point. I'll admit you've saved our bacon multiple times, Sakha, but you should probably be a bit nicer 'cause we're all working to keep everyone else alive, too."
Cassandra Lionheart: "ORN…You need to eat, huh?"
ORN: "… Always, why?"
Felicia: "That and you fall to a light breeze."
Cassandra Lionheart: "You like swords?"
Trombe comes to a halt in front of the stone temple. The door is too small for the mechanical chocobo to fit through.
Pak: "…"
Pak: "Hm."
Pak: "Oh!"
ORN: "… … … They do not really taste like lances… But acceptable, why?"
Pak hops down.
Pak: "Lemme go see if Trombe's cousin is down here!"
ORN nods at pak and jumps off
Cassandra_Lionheart pulls out the Short Sword she got earlier "Have a snack!"
Felicia: "?"
Pak scrambles into the Temple. "Let us cats handle this!"
ORN: "cats?"
ORN looks around
Eric_Lionheart gets off Trombe, though trips and lands on the ground with a oof.
Cassandra Lionheart: "Hey, Pak! Wait up!"
ORN catches the sword, and tries a bit. what's it taste like?
Sakha hmphs and stays put.
jumps down and helps Eric up*
Hector hops off of Trombe.
Ahiru ops off heading to the temple.
Cassandra Lionheart: "Eric..your still tripping?"
Felicia climbs down, and moves forward.
Eric_Lionheart blinks a bit. "Thanks, Cassandra. Guess I'm not used to getting off of robotic chocobos."
Eric_Lionheart scratches the back of his head a bit, and adjusts the glasses on his face.
Hector: "End of one chapter is the beginning of another."
*he starts off towards the temple*
Cassandra_Lionheart giggles "Your not used to getting off of anything if I remember."
Ahiru: "Electric."
Eric Lionheart: "But it's still a machine, right?"
Felicia: "I'm *still* not used to it…"
Cassandra Lionheart: "Og course, Trombe is."
[OOC] Riia: What is it with EC and incest?
Pak is first inside, and easily finds the hidden trap door.
Ahiru shrugs.
[OOC] ORN: … picturing the two as rednecks right now and the whole thing just sounds wrong ;
Eric Lionheart: "Well, lets catch up with everyone else…"
Pak opens up door.
[OOC] ORN: I kin git off you just fine, cuz!
Pak: "Aha…"
Cassandra Lionheart: "Yeah."
[OOC] Eric Lionheart: >.<
Many cold, glassy eyes stare at Pak from the darkness beyond the door…
ORN looks around for the cats apparently needed for this
WC GM: //Battle order: Pak:20 BotSentinelQ:17 BotSentinelD:17 BotSentinelK:16 BotSentinelS:15 BotSentinelN:15 BotSentinelB:15 BotSentinelM:14 BotSentinelJ:14 BotSentinelH:13 BotSentinelO:12 BotSentinelI:12 BotSentinelA:12 BotSentinelP:11 BotSentinelG:10 BotSentinelE:10 BotSentinelR:9 BotSentinelL:9 BotSentinelF:8 BotSentinelC:8

Hector runs up to Pak.
[OOC] WC GM: Pak!
Cassandra_Lionheart cathes up and sighs
[OOC] ORN: combat reflexes, no good?
[OOC] WC GM: Pak's ahead of everyone else. You catch up next round.
[OOC] ORN: kk
Cassandra Lionheart: "ORN..What are you doing?"
[OOC] Felicia: l2run
Pak: "…Uh."
ORN: "… This Unit has never actually… … What IS a cat?"
Cassandra_Lionheart blinks //"ORN, the Mithra."
Pak: "…I forgot about the robots that Bolt set up."
ORN: "… oh. why didn't he say so?"
ORN heads towards pak
Pak ponders for a moment, then…
Pak rolled 1d100 and got 75 for a total of 75
[OOC] Pak: …GF that.
Pak rolled 1d100 and got 50 for a total of 50
[OOC] Pak: …Fail by 10 D:
Pak hesitates, and…
[OOC] Pak: Wait
[OOC] Pak: dammit
…the bot sentinels…just sit there, deactivated.
[OOC] Pak: I have ESCAPE.
[OOC] Pak: …oh.
Pak: "…"
Cassandra Lionheart: "He kind of did."
Pak: "…Um…"
Pak: "Hey guys!"
[OOC] Cassandra Lionheart: brb
Pak: "I found a pile of deactivated robots!"
Pak waves, now standing atop one.
Ahiru goes up.
It tumbles over underneath Pak's weight.
Eric_Lionheart blinks.
Felicia: "…Bots again."
ORN goes completely dark for a moment
Eric_Lionheart pokes one with his staff.
Sakha stays stubbornly on Trombe, reviewing notes
ORN: "Techschool designs… mkII sentinels…"
The one Eric poked collapses.
Pak wah!
ORN starts to sparkle as he walks into the middle and starts focusing ((ct-6 if it matters ;p))
Pak: "Hey, Ahiru."
Eric_Lionheart stands back.
[OOC] WC GM: It matters not. Combat over.
Pak: "If you turned into King, could you reactivate one?"
[OOC] Eric Lionheart: I think ORN is going to eat them. >.>
Pak: "…Hey, where's Sis?"
Ahiru blinks and chages into King.
Eric Lionheart: "Back on Trombe."
ORN fires off a massive electrical field around himself ((machina killer)) and would probably be grinning sadistically if he had a mouth
Hector: "I hope that doesn't send 'em all back into life and then they try to kill us."
ORN: "This Unit recomends… looting"
Ahiru: "Does this mean I don't need to be King?"
The robots' electrical shields (A: Lightning) still seem intact.
Pak heads back for Sakha.
ORN smashes one gleefully with full force, and starts feeling around
Eric Lionheart: "Looting?! That…that wouldn't be nice to steal…"
ORN: "… Their defense is operational. Please proceed with utmost enthusiasm"
ORN smashes - and finds his fist has gone completely through the relatively fragile robot.
Hector: "Hm…"
Ahiru: "But they're all mine aren't they? King put them here."
[OOC] WC GM: 160 HP + 34 ARM - a full force punch would put them into Fatal. >_>
ORN: "Creators. Excellent Work. This Unit holds pride."
Hector: "Regardless of who owns them, they're all pretty pathetic."
[OOC] Cassandra Lionheart: back
Cassandra_Lionheart looks and sighs "ORN…can you stop wrecking them."
Felicia kicks one over. "Pathetic, and yet still a nuisance."
ORN: "… You have two options. First, an unacceptable delay could be used in sending these to support, should Ahiru be capable of their control, our forces underground"
ORN: "Secondly, many components are nevertheless expensive and in several cases even delicious, such as their control systems and frames"
Hector: "You might as well eat the one you just broke the hell out of."
Cassandra Lionheart: "Yeah. Poor thing."
ORN: ".. They also mount integrated weaponry, which while inefficient when compared to This Unit's glorious design, could be bundled up into a massive salvo and……"
ORN blinks
Hector: "They're not working, so let's just keep moving."
Pak yells from the ground. "Sisss!"
About this time, a knocking comes from the temple front.
Cassandra_Lionheart moves close to Eric and walks behind Hector.
ORN: "Trombe Unit. Please mount and store these in your catapult section. Great pleasure may be yet obtained"
Pak: "Come on, hurry up! We might get to find another Chocobo that considers us its master!"
Trombe has begun pecking at the front wall, to carve an opening large enough to follow through.
Felicia growls. "I'd rather we just get rid of them altogether…"
ORN stares over at felicia, a little madness in his eyes
ORN: "But think of all the shock-arms."
Cassandra Lionheart: "Yeah…Just have ORN eat them. He needs to regain his power."
Sakha: "I'll keep Trombe company, thank you. If you're so keen on finding another one, go ahead."
Sakha reads her notes.
Felicia: "I'd prefer not to, knowing you."
Pak: "T_T"
Pak: "Fine, then."
Pak climbs up and sits RIGHT next to her, glaring at her as she studied. T_T
Eric_Lionheart whispers to Cassandra. "Does this always happen?"
ORN starts eating the chassis and ripping off the arms, taking them with him
Cassandra_Lionheart whispers back "A lot. Sakha has a SHORT fuse."
Soon enough, Trombe has pecked out an opening into the temple - and then into the tunnel.
Though it is a tight fit.
Sakha glances up. "What, Pak, would you like a lesson?"
Indeed, only by loading the robots into Trombe can it squeeze by.
Felicia: "…"
The tunnel stretches as far ahead as the party can see.
Eric Lionheart: "Hmm."
ORN comes out and rejoins the others at the top once he's done loading
ORN visibly has a fully reformed right arm now
Pak: "…Sure."
Pak softens.
Pak: "What'cha studying?"
Pak peeks over.
ORN: "Corrupting the designs of evil for This Group's cause would bring great distress to the tech school ^^"
Cassandra Lionheart: "It kind of get frustrating when they fight. They are family…Reminds me of what is happening with me right now…Except my mom is not around to light my fuse."
Eric_Lionheart nods.
Cassandra Lionheart: "So you just got to ignore it…and heal to wounds."
Somewhere not that far away, but still well out of sight and hearing, a certain other Lionheart sneezes.
[OOC] WC GM: Forestburg, specifically.
Pak: "So, let's go~"
Pak points down the tunnel, still reading over Sakha's shoulder.
Trombe begins walking down the tunnel.
Sakha: "Well I'm reviewing my Plasma notes at the moment…"
Cassandra Lionheart: "But enough about her. We got to keep going."
*walks in further*
Hector is on Trombe, just kinda hanging out.
Hector: "Alright, everyone back up on Trombe. I think we're gonna be here for a while."
ORN kneels on trombe pulls out one of the arms and starts experimenting with loading a shell in front of it, or behind it, or clusters around it, and toying with the balance
Trombe: "Inquiry as to expected length of transit."
ORN: "Unknown. Felicia may with map?"
Pak: "Oh! Plasma…"
Felicia: "Hm."
ORN looks at pak for a moment
Cassandra Lionheart: "Huh? Aww."
Pak hms. "I don't think I can make fire hot enough to create plasma yet…"
Pak: "I'll practice to try and make hotter fire."
Felicia pulls out her copy of the map, and begins looking it over.
Felicia: "It's really not that difficult…"
Eric_Lionheart blinks. "What is…plasma? I'm not familar with that term."
ORN holds out his hand, and forms an arc
Felicia: "Hm. Is Trombe capable of its rocket powered transport mode?"
Sakha: "It's a magical matter te Elvaan use to make anyting from food to weapons
Trombe: "Affirmative."
ORN: "However, another method used by felicia, Sakha and several elvaan allows them to shape it into usable materials"
Trombe: "Barely sufficient space to deploy engines."
Eric_Lionheart hmms thoughtfully.
Felicia: "Ah…"
Cassandra Lionheart: "It is really neat actually."
Felicia: "We need more space!"
Trombe demonstrates by extending the cylinders on either side.
Sakha: "Apparently Pyr even made bodies for our incessant pursuers with it."
Sure enough, it fits - barely - within the tunnel.
Eric Lionheart: "Incessant pursuers?"
Hector: "The Idiot Trio. Their names are Hicks, Biggs, and Wedge."
Eric Lionheart: "Maybe while traveling this tunnel, you can all tell me about all the things you've done."
Hector: "They follow us everywhere, and seem intent on stopping our plans."
Eric_Lionheart pulls out a notebook, writing that done.
ORN nods at felicia and starts firing into the side walls
Pak: "Alright…"
Pak: "Use the rockets limitedly at first to test if you can handle zooming along using them."
Pak: "Then proceed to higher speeds."
Cassandra Lionheart: "The idiot trio…Where to start."
Trombe: "Acknowledged."
The transport begins to do just that.
Eric Lionheart: "…I've heard of those three before…couldn't be the same three though, could it?"
Felicia: "More than likely."
Hector: "They were originally part of the Refuge military, just like Felicia."
ORN nods.
ORN: "They are consistently respawned and granted various immunities"
You know, mentally, from the acceleration that you are going faster and faster…yet the same tunnel walls just keep whipping by.
Felicia: "…"
Eric Lionheart: "Hmm…oh well, sounds like they didn't pose much of a challenge for you, right?"
Sakha: "Generally not, but they do get stronger each time we meet."
Eric_Lionheart keeps writing.
ORN: "However, before encountering us they generally cause various problems to local populations such as assassination attempts"
Minutes pass…half an hour…an hour…
Eric_Lionheart swaps to a second notebook.
Cassandra Lionheart: "Yeah. They don't know how to use thier powers well though."
…ninety minutes…two hours…
[OOC] Hector: My playlist really likes black metal.
Sakha yawns.
Eric_Lionheart yawns as well.
Hector: "Considering our speed, shouldn't we be done with this tunnel by now?"
ORN keeps an eye out for side tunnels, just in case…
…a brief blip in the terrain…Trombe shuts off its engines and starts skidding to a halt.
[OOC] Hector: It's the "INFINITE LOOP POWERED BY A WIZARD" dungeon.
Cassandra Lionheart: "Trombe, what is wrong?"
[OOC] WC GM: But not! Though it's certainly that monotonous.
Pak yawns too.
Trombe: "Alternate routes detected."
Pak: "…Hm?"
[OOC] ORN: yes but the trick to those is usually that there's something nasty every time you pass by. you know, like teleporting into spikes
Pak: "Alternate… routs…?"
ORN nods
ORN: "Assessment?"
Trombe backs up to the blip. You find yourselves at a four-way intersection.
Pak: "Oh!"
Pak: "Uh…"
Eric_Lionheart looks around.
Felicia: "Hrm."
[OOC] Riia: AHA
Pak offers a flame for Felicia to see by.
Pak: "So, what's the map say?"
Eric_Lionheart pulls out a compass. (Navigation?)
Felicia tries to gauge how far along they are.
[OOC] Hector: Riia being here means Riia's going to join today?
[OOC] WC GM: Sure, with a bonus.
[OOC] Riia: I hope so
Eric Lionheart rolled 1d100 and got 49 ( Total: 49 )
[OOC] WC GM: And yes, you'll run into Riia before end of session.
[OOC] Eric Lionheart: Pass by 1 without bonus.
The needle points straight down one of the tunnels. And…is there a faint red light down that way?
From the opposite tunnel sounds a faint roaring noise.
Eric_Lionheart informs everyone of this, of course.
Felicia blinks.
Pak: "…U-um."
Pak: "Why do I hear something?"
It is very faint, as if from a long distance away.
Hector: "Probably 'cause somethin' is in fact there."
ORN: //hostiles

Eric Lionheart: "Should we go the way my compass points?"
Pak: "Well… I see Red that way…"
Pak: "And hear sound that way."
Pak: "And there's nothing the other way or the way we came."
Cassandra Lionheart: "Let us go there then."
Sakha shrugs and reviews some notes. //"Do."
[OOC] WC GM: To wit: red to north, sound from south.
Pak: "Okay… let's proceed north, with caution."
Hector: "I think we should go with the compass."
Trombe: "Acknowledged."
Trombe begins heading for the light.
It does not take long before the metal walls give way to rock.
Pak: "That's different."
A shadow flickers across the red light ahead.
Cassandra_Lionheart looks around and sees the shadow "What is that?"
Trombe slows down as it approaches the light…
…in the faint red light, you see an Elvaan. The clerk from the mages' city store.
Clerk: "Oh! It's you!"
Hector: "Hey."
Ahiru: "Hello!"
Cassandra Lionheart: "Hi there."
Clerk: "How'd you get in here?"
ORN: "Pecking order."
Pak: "Um…"
Pak: "I'm more curious as to how you got here, honestly…"
Clerk: "I climbed up the Volcannon. I heard there was a path to other lands in it, and - well, this seems like one."
Pak: "…Oh!"
Hector: "Huh."
Cassandra Lionheart: "So honestly, what are you doing here sir?"
Eric_Lionheart hmms.
She gestures to the light. Now that you are close - that red could be magma.
Sakha: "Hmm… so I guess we turn south, the roaring may have been the Sea."
Indeed, it is a niche in the wall, with a ladder going down.
ORN pokes cassie
ORN: "Is that really a 'sir'?"
Clerk: "I'm still looking for that Mignon, like I said I would."
The tunnel continues on past the ladder.
Cassandra Lionheart: "Oh, sorry..I still must be recovering from the beating I got."
Hector: "Last we saw of the Mignons, they were in Seaburg."
Cassandra Lionheart: "Yeah."
Hector: "And we said we'd find their sister."
The clerk frowns, a sudden look of determination on her face. "I'll find her! I owe it to Mignon Lilas!"
Clerk: "If…if I'm ever to see her again…I should do something she'll notice…"
Hector: "You could always paint something pink that's extremely large and on top of a mountain."
Hector: "That'd be really hard to miss."
Cassandra Lionheart: "So, you want to tailor Pak and mines armor again?"
*shrugs her shoulders*
ORN: "… Annihilating a large incoming planetoid would be an excellent start"
[OOC] Cassandra Lionheart: mine
The clerk blinks at the suggestions. "Ah…m-me? Tailor armor? I-I'm not that good at it…" She nervously taps her fingers together.
Hector: "It's no big deal. You could go to a civilized center and give out free makeovers or somethin'."
Pak: "Hee…"
Pak: "Hey, what's your name, anyway?"
ORN slumps down a little, turns her head and points her at pak
Cassandra Lionheart: "Aww come on, madam. You don't know until you try, right?"
ORN: "May as well get it overwith."
Clerk: "Me? Ah…you can call me Blanc."
ORN: "Time is of the essence, however. please perform atop This Group's transport unit"
Hector: "Orn, stop."
ORN: "?"
Hector: "Really, just…be quiet for a while."
Blanc: "And I swore I'd find that third Mignon! I won't rest until I do!"
Pak: "…Oh!"
Hector: "Oh, so you're looking for her, too?"
Pak: "In that case, come along with us."
Pak: "It's possible she's in Mithra lands!"
Cassandra Lionheart: "Ah, okay."
*giggles* "Yeah, come with us."
Sakha: "Dead weight…"
Hector: "Yeah. We might as well take you along, at least as far as where we're going."
ORN glares at hector
ORN: "This Group does not have the time to wait for fashion. This Unit is simply attempting to render the inevitable less of a delay."
Blanc: "Hmm? Come with you? W-well…"
Blanc looks to the south. "What's back that way? Have you explored there?"
Ahiru: "Not yet."
Felicia: "Working on that."
Pak: "Not yet. We're heading there now."
ORN: "Do not berate This Unit for having gotten to everyone else's point with less meandering."
Blanc: "There? Then…"
She looks behind her, to the north. "What's that way?"
Pak: "…?"
Pak looks." // //
Pak: "There's a path farther north?"
It was a bit difficult to see past the light, but the tunnel does indeed continue north, as far as you can see.
Pak: "Well…"
Pak: "Let's go that way, then!"
Eric Lionheart: "My compass pointed this way…hmm."
ORN: "Destination arctic region. North should be proper. Trombe Unit, please proceed."
Felicia: "Compasses always point north."
Blanc: "Tell you what. You're looking for the third Mignon too, right? Why don't you go one way and I'll go the other. One of us is sure to find her!"
Felicia: "This is still north."
Pak: "Okay. Then go south~"
Hector: "Right."
Pak: "Have fun, Blanc!"
Eric Lionheart: "Didn't we hear something down to the south, though?"
Pak: "…Oh, we did."
ORN: "Likely giant, angered interference requiring violence. However now is not the time for pleasure…"
Sakha: "Like I said, Water."
Pak: "Hm."
Pak: "…Oh, okay."
Pak: "Here, I got an idea."
Blanc: "Water? …wait. Pyrtyr said the surface world had a lot of water on it."
Cassandra Lionheart: "Well, lets go."
Blanc: "Would this tunnel…extend into it?"
Felicia looks down that ladder.
Pak: "Blanc- if you go south, you'll hit a crossroads!"
Pak: "South is water, East is Refuge!"
Pak: "West is something unknown!"
Pak: "Don't do anything dangerous!"
[OOC] Hector: It'd be nice if we had a minimap and a blip on it that marked our next major objective.
Blanc: "Ooh! I wanna see the water!"
[OOC] WC GM: You do have a minimap. See the EC page on the wiki.
[OOC] Eric Lionheart: IT doesn't blip, though.
[OOC] WC GM: The next major objective is the entire northern map.
[OOC] WC GM: So just imagine the entire map blipping. ;)
[OOC] ORN: we're in the southern section right now which means I imagine the up-left crossroad section in lower map
[OOC] ORN: which means we need north straight up if we're to get to the arctic kitty region
Hector: "We probably should head north."
[OOC] WC GM: Yes. More specifically, the mountain just north of that crossroad - which is the Volcannon.
Pak: "You can also see water if you go east!"
Pak: "You'll enter a temple! Exit it and head west to see the ocean!"
Blanc: "Yes, but…that's…"
She blushes.
Blanc taps her fingers together again. "…that's where SHE is, isn't she?"
Blanc: "And her new friend."
Cassandra_Lionheart looks at Blanc "Do you have a crush on her?"
[OOC] Hector: Lilas is an elvaan, so what's Rose? A mithra?
[OOC] WC GM: Yes.
[OOC] Cassandra Lionheart: no, I just did not say that. ><
Pak: "Yup…"
Blanc looks up suddenly. "W-wha?"
Blanc: "I…I…"
ORN: "Crushing her may be detrimental to her desires"
Blushing FURIOUSLY, Blanc runs past the party to the south. "I'mgonnagoseethewater!Goodluck!"
Cassandra Lionheart: "It's okay."
*looks at ORN* "Not that way…"
Cassandra_Lionheart blinks "Hey..No need to hurry off like that!"
Hector facepalms. "Trombe, continue heading north, and please don't fall into the hole."
ORN nods at hector
Trombe: "Affirmative."
Trombe easily steps past the niche in the wall, and continues north.
Cassandra Lionheart: "ORN, you need to learn somethin. She LIKES Mingnon…A crush."
It takes a while to proceed all the way through the Volcannon - at least, you assume you are through when the walls become metal again. Something seems different, as if these tunnels have seen more recent maintenance.
Cassandra_Lionheart looks at ORN
Eric_Lionheart looks around, with a bit of wonder.
ORN nods
Cassandra Lionheart: "Understand?"
ORN: "This Unit understood she wished to enjoy mingion's presence. It is your suggestion of crushing her that did not make sense"
Pak: "Hmm…"
Pak: "…"
Cassandra Lionheart: "Ah. Okay."
Pak: "Well, at least I told her the needed directions."
ORN: "This Unit has it on good authority that ones with much higher mass should not find themselves 'on top' in most circumstances, to avoid damaging those whose company they enjoy."
Pak leans over and looks at the notes more.
A bit over an hour later, the tunnel FINALLY slopes upwards.
Cassandra_Lionheart looks at ORN and sighs "We will have to talk about it later."
Eric Lionheart: "Finally, something different…"
Eric_Lionheart has been writing notes the entire way it seems.
Up, up, until…it stops, at a large hatch.
Sunlight can be seen through cracks around it.
[OOC] Hector: Is the hatch big enough for Trombe to walk through when open?
Pak: "…Ooh~!"
[OOC] WC GM: Yes.
[OOC] Hector: That's good.
Pak: "Wait, we… we found it!"
Pak: "It's a new land!"
Hector: "That we did."
Pak is excited!
[OOC] WC GM: Which is different from the last one you saw.
Hector: "And that it is."
Felicia looks up, having been making notes on her map.
ORN looks around
Ahiru hops up and opens the hatch!
Eric Lionheart: "Wow."
The hatch swings open a bit faster - someone was opening it from the other end. Fakir!
Fakir blinks. "Ahiru?"
Cassandra Lionheart: "Hmmm, lets see where we are now…AH! Fakir!"
Ahiru glomps Fakir crying his name
Eric_Lionheart blinks and looks at Cassandra. "Who's Fakir?"
Hector does the huge "D:!" face that Tasuku does in Original Generations.
Fakir hugs back. "Ahiru, you're a miracle!"
ORN looks at eric
Pak: "!"
Behind Fakir is a Viera.
Ahiru: "Hm?"
She looks at him quizzically.
Riia blinks and watches
ORN: "A runaway consistantly causing Ahiru some distress, possibly due to his lack of specific interest in her new form"
Pak attacks Fakir with rope!
Fakir grabs the Viera and tosses her at you. "Take her and hide! I'll distract them. If I'm right about her, she'll be of use to you!"
Pak ties him up totally.
Pak: "…Oh."
Fakir runs away just before the rope can touch.
Felicia: "…"
Pak: "DAMMIT!"
ORN: "His preference for Ducks is astounding… what?"
Felicia: "lolwut."
ORN tries jumping after him
Hector: "…"
Eric Lionheart: "…What…just happened?"
Pak: "…"
Riia grabs ORN and shakes her head violently
ORN glares
Pak stares at the Viera he's been handed.
ORN: "? ? ?"
Riia puts her finger to her lips, her ears stretching upward to hear every bit of sound she can
Pak: "…Why is there a bunny?"
ORN glares more
Hector: "Why, indeed."
ORN: "? ? ?"
Cassandra Lionheart: "Wait..she wants up to be quiet!"
Riia nods vigorously
Riia mimes much shorter ears on her head and makes a ferocious face
Pak: "…"
ORN waits a moment, then blasts off to help
Felicia: "…"
Pak takes off his hat.
Pak: "Myao?"
Riia jumps back
Riia pauses, then nods vigorously again
Cassandra_Lionheart slaps her face and sighs
Pak: "…Why can't she talk?"
Pak puts hat back on.
Fakir waves to something out of sight. "Hey! Hey! Demon's over this way!" And runs some more.
Hector: "Geez, Orn. Just…try to trust Fakir."
Sakha: "…"
Felicia: "…I'm more confused than usual."
Cassandra Lionheart: "Who knows, but just stay quiet!"
Riia ducks into the tunnel, flattening herself against Trombe
You hear a rumbling.
Pak: "…?"
Pak crawls up to peek out of the hatch.
A mob of several hundred armed Mithra are chasing Fakir.
Hector hops off of Trombe. "Trombe, move back a bit out of immediate sight, alright?"
Ahiru pouts.
Pak: "…!"
Pak: "Mithra!"
Pak clambers out.
Felicia: "That can't be good."
Cassandra Lionheart: "Oh my."
*looks at the Mithra* "Hey! All of you STOP NOW!"
Hector: "Sakha, you better go with him."
Riia blinks
Felicia follows out.
Riia looks at Cassie
[OOC] Cassandra Lionheart: intimidation roll?
ORN still trying to intercept and get a hold of fakir
Pak: "You guys keep that bunny safe. I'm gonna go investigate!"
Sakha: "Fine…"
she heads out.
[OOC] WC GM: Common sense check.
[OOC] ORN: pfft. failed that over a year ago!
Pak tosses Riia his hat.
Cassandra Lionheart rolled 1d100 and got 96 for a total of 96
[OOC] Pak: ahahahahaha
[OOC] Felicia: Ayup.
Hector points to the viera. "You, behind me. Duck if you have to."
[OOC] ORN: you too! nice!
Riia throws the hat on, folding her ears under it uncomfortably
Cassandra is not even noticed by the mob. Which is not necessarily a bad thing.
Pak: "Myaaao!"
Pak hops down. Where is he, anyway?" // //
Cassandra_Lionheart blinks and sighs
[OOC] Pak: What does it look like on the outside?
The Mithra run by, chasing Fakir.
Fakir leads them into a cave.
[OOC] Hector: Cue Benny Hill theme?
[OOC] Pak: Like, is it outside? Inside? Hills? Ocean? What?
Aside from the rampaging mob, the land is fairly peaceful - a beach lies nearby, and some hills to the other side.
Sakha: "Ok, fine, what're we to do now?"
Cassandra Lionheart: "Find a town? Or find Fakir and get him away from them."
Riia sighs and relaxes
Felicia perks. "A beach!"
ORN stabs his arm into the cave mouth
Eric Lionheart: "…"
Hector: "Y'know, I bet Fakir could handle them himself."
Rain is visible in patches on the horizon. Occasional flashes of lightning can be seen. But, right where the party is, the skies are clear, though there is a bit of a breeze.
Hector: "If he can blow through rock like it's no problem, then a wall of flesh should be nothing."
Hector climbs out of the hatch and motions for the viera to follow.
Riia does so
The opening seals before ORN. Looks like Fakir had the same idea.
Cassandra Lionheart: "Yeah, but your talking about Pak's and Sahka's kin there, Hector."
Pak: "Mithra lands…"
Pak: "I'm so happy~"
Felicia: "Me too~"
Hector: "And you're telling me a mithra requires more force to squash than a rock dwarf or rock troll?"
ORN: "… Your constant avoidance and fear of fowl will be the death of you."
ORN starts leaping back and crashes next to the party
Pak: "…So!"
Felicia: "Finally to see a large flowing body that isnt made of molten rock~"
Pak: "The sea~"
Pak: "The Sun! The Hills! The sky!"
Hector sighs. "In any case, I think we're fine for now." He turns to the viera. "Right, well. Fakir entrusted us with you."
Cassandra Lionheart: "Yeah. Water. Can we take a dip?"
Riia nods and bows.
The wind definitely smells of salt water, just like Seaburg.
Pak: "Ahh… <3"
Riia points at her shirt, which has something written on it in Viera
Hector points to himself. "I'm Hector."
Sakha: "It's been a while since I last went swimming…"
[OOC] Pak: Oh! I can read Viera!
Riia taps her mouth and shrugs
Hector: "And I have no idea what that says."
[OOC] Pak: Vieran is ancient, right?
[OOC] WC GM: Yes.
Pak looks over at Riia.
Pak: "…!"
Pak: "Hey, wait!"
Pak grabs her shirt.
Pak: "I can read this!"
[OOC] Riia: It says Riia, it's her nametag.
Cassandra Lionheart: "I know."
*looks to the Viera* "I think she is showing you she can't talk."
Pak: "R…i…i…a."
Pak: "Riia."
Riia coughs and looks just a bit pale
Pak: "So, Riia is…?"
Riia pats her chest.
Pak: "Ah, okay."
Pak: "Riia is the word for shirt."
Cassandra Lionheart: "And..Sick?"
Riia bows again and steps back from Pak, then facepalms
Sakha glances back at the Viera. "Why me…?"
Eric_Lionheart blinks and hmms.
Pak: "…Er, no…?"
Cassandra Lionheart: "Her name IS Riia."
Pak: "Oh, okay."
Eric Lionheart: "Maybe you made a translating error, Pak?"
Riia nods enthusiastically
Hector: "Hm."
Pak: "Is that right? Okay."
Pak: "Riia."
Hector: "So she's Riia, she can't talk, and she's a Viera."
Pak: "Just stay with us and keep your hat on."
Pak: "And, uh…"
Riia nods a bit more soberly
ORN: "hm"
Pak: "Maybe get yourself something that looks like a Mithra tail."
Sakha punches Pak. "Learn more, doofus."
Pak: "Or~!"
Pak oww.
Hector: "S'pose everything else about 'er will unravel as time goes on."
Felicia: "…"
ORN: "Writing may be more efficient."
Riia looks disapprovingly at Sakha and shakes her finger at the mithra
Cassandra Lionheart: "Now now. Let us let Riia take this all in, please."
Sakha: "Don't you start on me you cannibalistic rabbit!"
Riia stares at Sakha and her face goes flat.
Cassandra Lionheart: "Sakha! We don't even know if she did that. By the way she looks…she hasn't."
Riia: //She shakes her head vehemently.

ORN: "Ah. That is true. If living in a different area, perhaps she still requires eating offspring. Or perhaps she never needed to?"
ORN stares curiously
Sakha: "She gets on my nerves just being here."// She grumbles.
Eric_Lionheart blinks. "Alright, settle down everyone."
Riia points at the sea and makes a wiggling gesture
Pak: "…?"
Pak looks.
Cassandra Lionheart: "Sahka. Deal with it. We can use all the help we can get!"
ORN: ".. Yes. there are waves"
ORN nods
Riia also pulls out a small fishing spear
Pak: "Oh!"
ORN: "… Ah! a dragon hunter!"
Sakha: "OH LAY OFF!"
Riia jabs with it, then puts it away
Felicia: "Fishy?"
Eric_Lionheart blinks. "You catch and eat…fish? Right?"
Pak: "So she caught fish."
Riia licks her lips and grins
Pak: "Well, that helps…"
Hector: "Nothin' wrong with fish, 'cept it sucks to be the fish."
Hector laughs.
Riia shrugs at that
Pak: "Anyway…"
Cassandra_Lionheart GLARES at Sakha with a vigor not seen in a while "I have! Your just condeming her right off the bat!"
Pak: "Let's try to get ourselves settled."
ORN: "The elvaan required entire teams to obtain them. Impressive."
Pak heads over to the hatch.
Riia pats Cassies shoulder and shrugs
Pak: "Hey, Trombe!"
Felicia: "Those are lavafish. Different."
Pak: "Can you get out, or are you stuck?"
ORN: "… different how?"
There are no immediate signs of civilization, although there is a beaten path leading northwest, towards the hills.
Trombe emerges from the tunnel, sparkling in the sun.
Sakha: "The Mithra called her Demon right? Suits well enough. Hmph."
Pak: "…Also, sis, stop being racist."
Cassandra_Lionheart looks to Riia and smiles "Sorry. Sahka can be moody. But this vendetta has to end now." *Glares again at Sahka* "RIGHT?"
Eric Lionheart: "Can someone explain to me why Sakha is so angry?"
Pak: "You're being as bad as those Mithra chasing her."
Sakha: "Fine, she doesn't exist."
Pak climbs onto Trombe.
ORN looks over at Eric
Riia shrugs and gestures around waist level. She isn't clear as to what she means, though.
Sakha gets on Trombe.
Riia clambers up the metal thing and looks at it in wonder
Cassandra_Lionheart giggles "Probably."
Pak: "Let's head on over towards that path."
ORN: "Simple. When the viera originally arived on this world, they quickly entered into a war over the rape of males with the Mithra."
Ahiru smiles and shakes Riia's hand.
Eric_Lionheart boards Trombe and blinks at ORN.
Riia sighs and nods
Pak winces. "ORN. Please say it more gently next time? >_<"
Felicia hops up onto the metal bird.
Hector is on Trombe in a flash!
Trombe starts walking along the path once all are aboard.
ORN: "The Mithra were highly protective of their society, and refused to share their unwilling gender. Thus the smaller and physically less imposing males."
Cassandra Lionheart: "Okay Riia..So can you write?"
*she smiles thoughtfully to Riia*
ORN: "The viera having no males whatsoever required the rape to produce offspring for them to consume, and due to their impact point, became directly in contact and conflict with the mithra."
It takes but minutes to come across a small village. Mithra everywhere - moreso even than in Seaburg.
Felicia: "!"
Pak: "So many Mithras~!"
Pak looks for fellow males.
Riia makes sure that hat is seated firmly
Few males in sight. From the grains and fruit being carted around, it looks like this is a farming village in harvest season.
Sakha lights up. "Wow! So many came out here didn't they?"
ORN: "Both sides consider the other vicious 'demons' more or less, although both have striking similarities in their treatment of the other gender, such as the use of bondage and cages."
Eric_Lionheart hmms and nods. "I…see."
ORN gets much closer and quieter to eric
Pak: "Hello there~! n.n"
Pak calls excitedly.
Much of the village stops and stares as the party comes into view.
Cassandra Lionheart: "So much trouble for our friend here."
*gets an idea* "Riia, wear this!" *goes into her duffle bag, and pulls out her worn out White Mage uniform* "This should help hiding your features!"
ORN: "This is also likely why sakha is so easily frustrated with Pak's popularity with females of all races"
Eric Lionheart: "Pak, you really shouldn't have drawn attention to us…"
Cassandra Lionheart: "Oh my."
Pak: "We're riding a giant metal bird."
Mithra: "What…where'd you get onna THOSE things?"
ORN nods and stands back up
Pak hops down. "In the tunnels."
Riia shakes the robe out and looks at it
Pak: "Well, a tunnel very far away."
Sakha: "We picked it up as a pet. He was lonely."
Pak: "Greetings!"
[OOC] WC GM: Lang: Mithra check, for those who have it.
Felicia waves.
Eric Lionheart rolled 1d100 and got 8 ( Total: 8 )
Sakha rolled 1d100 and got 41 ( Total: 41 )
Felicia rolled 1d100 and got 43 ( Total: 43 )
Pak rolled 1d100 and got 61 for a total of 61
Riia rolled 1d100 and got 70 ( Total: 70 )
[OOC] Eric Lionheart: EPIC pass.
[OOC] Felicia: Pass to the max.
[OOC] Pak: …I failed my own language?! D:
Cassandra_Lionheart sighs and doesn't understand what is being said
Eric_Lionheart hops off.
[OOC] Felicia: Hahaha
[OOC] Riia: Epic fail
Hector: "The hat's enough, Cassie."
[OOC] Sakha: pass
Riia really hopes they aren't talking about what she's afraid they are
It soon strikes those versed in the Mithran tongue - what these Mithra are speaking is closer to Common than Mithran.
Hector: "So stop trying to help or you're going to end up making things worse."
There is a detectable ancestry, though.
Cassandra_Lionheart looks at Hector and frowns
Riia pats Hector's shoulder and drapes the robe over her leathers, making sure that the hood covers the hat as a backup
Pak just speaks straight Mithran, not realizing this.
Hector looks back. "Huh? Oh, well…hm. That's good, then."
Mithra: "Last one of those was destroyed decades ago, wannit?"
Hector gets down off of Trombe and stands next to Pak.
Eric_Lionheart smiles softly at the gathered Mithras. At least he can understand and speak their language, though he does look a little nervous.
Pak: "Was well hidden, yup. S'nice to have one~"
Cassandra_Lionheart gets off Trombe and waits for Riia to help her down
Sakha: "This one must be resillient then."
ORN stares
Mithra: "Musta been."
Hector: "Considering all we've put him through, I'd say he's probably some kind of perfect production model or somethin'."
Eric Lionheart: "He's fast too."
Hector: "Or maybe one of those infinite-budget first models that was used as a base."
ORN: "Perhaps simply not crushed by falling rock?"
Cassandra_Lionheart looks at Eric "Um, I need to learn Mitran sometime. I don't understand a word being said."
Mithra: "Nah. Hidden's the only way that'd make sense. Th' pirates woulda trashed 'im bah now o'erwise."
Pak: "Pirates?"
Eric_Lionheart whispers to Cassandra. "I can teach you the basics later."
Hector: "Pirates!"
Felicia: "Pirates? Where?"
Eric Lionheart: "Pirates?"
[OOC] Sakha: They're speaking common with mithran slang
Sakha: "Pirates, hm?"
[OOC] Hector: So it's like speaking English with random Japanese phrases thrown in?
ORN: "Why would pirates destroy these as opposed to reprogramming?"
Pak blinks and switches to common.
[OOC] Felicia: It's like listening to m-flo.
Mithra: "Yeah. Pah-rates. Y'know, terror o' th' seas, takin' what they wan'? THOSE pah-rates?"
Pak: "Pah-rates."
[OOC] WC GM: Hector: pretty much, and the occasional r-to-l mishap.
Pak: "Felicia, you'd know if there were pirates anyplace."
[OOC] WC GM: When you were expecting Japanese.
Eric Lionheart: "Do you get attacked by pirates, though?"
The mithra farmer smiles. "Nah dat much this far from th' coast!"
Eric Lionheart: "Well, that is good then."
Hector: "Yeah, makes sense. Pirates don't go really far inland unless they've got an agenda."
Mithra: "We moved up here so's t' be far from where they're strong."
Pak: "We'll need to keep Trombe Safe…"
Eric_Lionheart seems to be great at talking with people, at least.
Felicia: "Ah… The last pirates I had to deal with were you bunch."
Mithra: "More 'n' that. This far from th' coast, Mer can't strike so hard."
Sakha: "'ow much control and influence do they 'ave elsewhere?"
Riia starts at the mention of Mer, then focuses on what the demon is saying
ORN: "… why would they destroy Trombe Units?"
Pak: "Mer?"
Cassandra Lionheart: "What is Mer doing?"
Pak: "…"
Pak also stares at Sakha.
The farmer shrugs. "They got MER on their side. On the ocean! Yer speakin' like you ain't never seen them, but even if yew somehow haven't, take a wil' guess!"
Sakha: "Same reason King sealed the tunnels."
ORN: "… Then all that is required is to sink their vessels, correct?"
[OOC] Hector: hay gusy i'm gonna hit the bathroom for like 10-15.
[OOC] ORN: …
[OOC] Sakha: diarrhea?
Pak: "Interesting, nyo…"
The farmer blinks. "…waitaminute." She points at Cassandra. "…yew…yew ain't a Mithra."
Pak: "…Oh."
Felicia: "…Well yeah."
The farmer points at Eric. "And yew ain't neither." Then Felicia.
Cassandra Lionheart: "No, we are human."
ORN: "Human, Human, Elvaan."
Eric Lionheart: "No, we aren't. We have traveled from a far away place to these lands."
Felicia: "Neither'm I, though I grew up round'em."
Sakha: "She's a human. We have 3 in our group, and an Elvaan."
Farmer: "Human? Elvaan? Last I heard…"
Riia yanks innocence to MAX
The farmer's eyes grow wide. "Plu and Min preserve us all, are you from…REFUGE?!?"
Pak: "!"
Felicia: "Yup."
ORN nods
Eric Lionheart: "That…would be correct."
Pak: "Yes!"
Sakha: "Yes."
Cassandra Lionheart: "Yes, we are."
Cassandra Lionheart: "We are in trouble, are we not?"
Eric Lionheart: "Cassandra, please, be quiet for a moment."
ORN: "Please note before reacting that any racial intolerance not pertaining to moogles will be met with lethal force."
Cassandra_Lionheart looks down
ORN: "However, This Group currently wishes you no harm."
Farmer: "We…we haven' heard from yew in…decades! We thought yew'd gone off an' DIED. Wha' in tarnation happened?"
Felicia: "Rocks fell."
Riia points at a lightning flash
Pak: "Um…"
Pak: "Well… It's a long story…"
Riia tries to indicate the spirits somehow…
Sakha: "The ruling powers worshipped Bolt and sealed off all history from the firing of the Volcannon."
Farmer: "Oh…mah…"
Riia shrugs and nods
ORN: "The other spirits, notably Bolt in refuge's case, much like mer and your 'pah rates', conspired to seal off the various countries from eachother."
Felicia: "Indeed."
[OOC] Cassandra Lionheart: brb
The farmer calls over her shoulder, "Hey, everyone! These girls be from REFUGE!"
Pak: "We'd love to stay here and spread the word of what's happened in greater detail."
Pak: "…Wait, huh?"
A murmuring, wondering crowd soon gathers at the farmer's back, staring at the group.
ORN: "Dwarves sealed underground, Elvaan split and sealed either above or below, yourselves here it would seem, and the viera in the plains."
ORN: "Others not yet accounted for, though certain non-hostile moogles may be above ground."
Eric Lionheart: "Yes, we would love to hear about everything you know of these lands and current events."
Riia pulls the hood low
Sakha: "Don't speak the V word, rockpile."
Pak: "…Um…"
Pak: "We're not all girls…"
Too late - the crowd freezes.
ORN: "Very well."
Felicia: "…"
Farmer: "Did yew say…Viera?"
ORN: "On a different continent."
Farmer: "They still live?"
ORN: "Live is relative."
Pak: "Yes, but again. Far, far away."
Pak: "Like, there's no Viera around for at least 1000 miles."
Farmer: "…that's a relief."
Pak: "THAT far."
The crowd un-freezes, and resumes murmuring.
Eric Lionheart: "Anyways, lets discuss other matters. I believe that would be what everyone would want, right?"
ORN: "You should note however that much of their hostility was caused by Milf's interference"
Farmer: "We c'n deal wit' them later, then."
Pak: "Also, like I said. We're not all girls."
Pak: "ESpecially him."
Pak points at ORN for emphasis.
ORN: "Milf has since then been violently suppressed, and they are no longer the same race your stories tell of."
ORN nods at pak
ORN: "This Unit is quite capable of forming male sections for the pleasure of environing females."
Farmer: "Yea, yea, 'girls' be th' generic term. Don' wave it in our faces 'at you got a harem, lady, it ain't polite 'round these parts."
ORN sparkles brilliantly in the sun
[OOC] Hector: EW.
Sakha: "….
[OOC] Hector: /quagmire
Eric Lionheart: "…"
ORN shakes head at her last comment though
Felicia: "…"
Hector scratches the back of his head.
ORN: "That is not it. It is that in most other races gender distribution is more equalised."
Pak: "I'm also a boy."
Pak male pride poses.
Eric Lionheart: "Same here."
Farmer: "Yea, I know, harems are easy to get in Ref-"
ORN: "only rare humans obtain harems, as there are roughly as many males as females to go around."
The farmer BLINKS at Pak.
Riia blinks
Riia flinches
Sakha: "There are still more girls in the group than boys."
ORN: "… uh oh."
Felicia: "…Pak."
Hector gets into position to grab Pak and throw him back up on Trombe.
Pak: "…"
ORN stands a little more between them and pak
Farmer: "A…free boy?'
Pak: "W-what?"
Pak: "…"
ORN nods
The farmer licks her lips.
Sakha: "Pak, you're an idiot."
Felicia: "He's ours."
Farmer: "Aww."
Felicia coughs.
Riia agrees with Sakha on that
ORN: "Attempts to eliminate the 'freedom' part of his descriptor will cost you far more citizens than you may imagine."
Farmer: "Oh, well. If'n he's claimed, we'll respect yer claim."
ORN leans closer
ORN: "They are really jealous."
Pak: "Alright, good. n.n;"
Hector: "I think the situation's okay, Orn."
Riia breathes a sigh of relief and relaxes
Farmer: "He's obviously wit' yew anyway."
Eric Lionheart: "ORN, please watch what you say…"
ORN: "?"
Cassandra_Lionheart sighs and shkaes her head
[OOC] Riia: Whoa, sudden blast of deja vu.
Farmer: "So who's his alpha? Her?"
The farmer points at Riia.
ORN: "Is there something displeasing at This Unit's threats? was This Unit's intonation not pleasing?"
Felicia: "…"
Sakha: "No, me."
she steps foreward."
Eric_Lionheart whispers to ORN. "At least let someone well versed in negotiations do most of the talking."
[OOC] Riia: Wohoa, first actual claim!
Pak: "Yup. Sakha's my boss~"
[OOC] Hector: Eric's negotiation skill: 9999999999%.
Pak plays along.
[OOC] Hector: :P
Farmer: "Ah. K. Huh, at first ah thought yew were his sister."
ORN: "This Unit has successfully negotiated with several elemental spirits and peoples, always for the better ^^.
Cassandra_Lionheart looks to Sahka and smiles
ORN: "She is that also"
ORN nods
Farmer: "…"
[OOC] ORN: ever so innocent :
Hector: "it's not what you think!"
Cassandra Lionheart: "ORN!"
Eric Lionheart: "I have a hunch your negotiations involve death and destruction first, questions later, ORN."
Hector: "It's more that she's protecting him until she can find someone suitable for him."
Pak: "I-indeed!"
Farmer: "…ah, yew mus' have a diff'ren' definition of 'sister' 'an we do."
Pak starting to back away from the Farmers. ./‘`/``/.
Farmer: "Oh! Ah see!"
ORN: "prepostrous. All negotiations involve discussion. Hostiles are easily identified by their attacking first."
Sakha: "I’m the girl in charge here tho, so if you don't want to be mithkabobs don't press it."
Farmer: "Mos' girls 'd be happy t' give away a brother that cute, but ah guess yew have differen' standards in Refuge."
ORN: "What is your definition of 'sister' then?"
Eric Lionheart: "Most negotiations don't involve obvious threats, either…"
Hector: "Same as usual, Orn."
Farmer: "Same mama, same papa."
ORN: "Ah. Then there are no differences. We understand eachother perfectly."
Pak: "Yup."
Hector: "Pak and Sakha are brother and sister, but Sakha's the boss of Pak 'cause she wants to make sure he finds someone that lives up to her standards."
Pak: "Yup!"
[OOC] ORN: you deviants have done horrors for poor ORN's understanding of incest laws! ;;.;;
Pak: "And I want Sakha to find someone that lives up to my standards, too!"
[OOC] Hector: And Orn's become Canti.
Sakha glares at Pak.
Cassandra_Lionheart shakes her head and looks to ORN
[OOC] Hector: Absorbing crap and sprouting extra appendages. D:
Cassandra Lionheart: "Anyways. We were wondering if there is anywhere we can stock up here?"
[OOC] Hector: So that means…Hector must become Gundam!
[OOC] Eric Lionheart: And what does Eric become? >.>
[OOC] ORN: but what if gundam becomes hector?
[OOC] Hector: Eric has to become…
[OOC] ORN: or worse yet what if hector becomes destiny gundam
[OOC] Hector: Mazinkaiser!
Pak: "Yes, we'd like a place to stay."
[OOC] Hector: I want to become Hi-Nu. D:
Farmer: "Sure, sure! Fer our sisters from Refuge, yew c'n stay at the inn fer free t'night."
[OOC] ORN: ORN would rather pull a stern Regisseur though ;p
[OOC] Hector: Complete with Norio Wakamoto voice?
ORN stares
Eric_Lionheart nods. "Thank you very much for the offer."
Farmer: "We were about t' have a feast anyway. Now we got a real reason t' feast!"
Cassandra Lionheart: "Thanks. Got any weapons and armor also?"
Pak: "Yay!"
Farmer: "'At, we ain't got so much of."
ORN: "Amazing… This Unit should also look into obtaining siblings to share bed with."
Sakha: "We plan to head out to sea. But I'd love a swim first… after underground tunnels and magma it'd be a treat…"
ORN makes a mental note of the trade advantage this would bring
Cassandra_Lionheart GLARES at ORN "Your NOT getting me into bed!!!"
ORN: "Swim?"
Eric_Lionheart blinks at ORN.
Hector breathes a sigh of relief. "You have regular food here. I was getting tired of bread, water, lavafish, and plasma."
Felicia: "For once I'm inclined to agree with Sakha."
Hector: "And eggs that taste like cake!"
Farmer: "Since we moved here, we been cut off from metal. This island ain't 'xactly got lots o' iron t'mine."
Pak: "A swim~"
Pak: "…Metal? Hm…"
ORN: "Crystal is an razor-sharp alternative."
Eric Lionheart: "I haven't gone for a swim in a long time."
Hector: "Could you tell us, then, where the largest city is?"
Farmer: "Ah ah! I really REALLY wouldn' suggest goin' to th' ocean fer a swim!"
Cassandra Lionheart: "Oh…great."
*mumbles something about being stuck with old armor*
Eric Lionheart: "Though, it does sound excessively dangerous."
Farmer: "We got a small lake ye can play in, but it ain't th' same."
ORN: "However, with the way open, though a long ride, it could be possible for you to trade with the dwarves for goods"
Felicia: "Why not?"
[OOC] Hector: I find it funny that the mithra want to swim, when cats hate water.
Sakha: "Not many Wand materials here then I take it… And why not?"
Cassandra Lionheart: "Sir, anything right now. i need a relaxing dip."
[OOC] ORN: none of my cats have ever hated water. my first one we used to bring with us to the lake.
[OOC] Eric Lionheart: It's likely a female mithra. :/
Farmer: "Ain'cha been LISTENIN', girl?"
[OOC] Sakha: Mithra are seafarers and island dwellers, and Lions love water :P
Farmer: "Mer! Th' pah-rates! 'Ey could strike at any time!"
Eric Lionheart: "Indeed. Lets just take the small lake, if they'll let us."
Felicia: "Meh."
Pak: "Lake works."
Hector: "Either way, we have to get elsewhere."
Cassandra_Lionheart slaps her forehead "Sorry. The last battle was really intense."
Sakha laughs. "Leave them to us. They don't scare me one bit."
Felicia pouts.
ORN: "… Then This Unit should accumulate kinetic energy and perform phase three integration to sink their vessels?"
ORN: "Violence will first be required."
Felicia: "Lakes arent the same… We could probably take them anyway."
Hector: "We could load up a ship with flaming carrots."
Eric Lionheart: "Maybe we should rest up and plan first."
ORN: "… What are their vessels made of?"
Hector: "I'm sure the psychological effect alone would be worth more than ten cannons."
Cassandra Lionheart: "Yeah. Planning woks."
ORN: "… … how deep is this 'coast'?"
Farmer: "Wood, mostly. 'Ey use a little Bio magic t' repair at sea."
Hector: "Wood ships, huh."
[OOC] ORN: not that anyone's thinking of having some magic used to allow underwater action and then torpedo-jump them from below
[OOC] ORN: no one. At all.
[OOC] Cassandra Lionheart: heh
Pak: "Hmm…"
Eric Lionheart: "I can grant us immunity to Bio based magical powers…"
Farmer: "Don' bother tryin' t' set them aflame. We tried that."
Pak: "What about electricity?"
Farmer: "Their power comes from Mer, at th' heart of it."
Eric Lionheart: "But for now, lets just rest up."
ORN: "Then crack them."
Pak: "Rest~"
Pak: "And feast!"
Felicia: "Swim T_T"
Pak: "And swim, too!"
Farmer: "Yeaaah, we ain' got so much 'lectricity. The clouds 've been tryin' t' help, though."
Eric Lionheart: "The travel here was long, and the more rest we can get, the better in my opinion."
ORN forms an arc across his hand
Cassandra_Lionheart looks at Eric "And we can do that by dipping in the lake for a bit."
ORN: "That will not be an issue"
ORN stares at pak
Farmer: "Yeah! Jus' like that! How'd you do that?"
ORN: "How does one swim?"
Hector: "Orn's special."
ORN: "hm? Simple. This Unit uses 'white magic', much like the destroyer, here"
Hector: "And was manufactured by people who really did think of just about everything."
Felicia: "…You go in the water. Then float."
Cassandra_Lionheart looks to ORN "You got no program to swim??"
ORN looks towards Eric saying that
Eric Lionheart: "…How can you possibly call that 'White Magic', ORN?"
ORN: "Program??? Swimming is a play?"
Cassandra Lionheart: "Swimming is enjoyable."
Pak: "…"
Pak sighs.
Pak: "Anyway…"
Pak: "Let's get into town and get settled.
ORN: "Everyone seems to be looking forward to it but no one wishes to explain…"
Eric Lionheart: "Swimming…it's…uh…well, you try to stay afloat in water usually."
Hector: "It's something you have to see in order to understand."
ORN: "Please demonstrate, then."
The other villagers have by now dispersed, and many of them are gathering in the town's main structure, which apparently serves as its tavern and inn among other functions.
Sakha: "I can help with Electricity"
Hector: "There's no water to swim in."
Cassandra Lionheart: "I can't believe dad didn't think of making you mobile in water."
The scent of baking wafts from said building.
Eric Lionheart: "I think I might have forgotten how to swim, though. It's been years…"
Cassandra_Lionheart looks quick to Eric "You also?"
Riia gets an expression of bliss on her face as she smells bread
Felicia looks around for that lake they were talking about. Food can wait. ">_>"
Eric Lionheart: "So, ORN, who taught you what White Magic means?"
Cassandra Lionheart: "Eric.I know you are a book worm…but you can't forget to swim!"
ORN: "Experience."
Eric Lionheart: "…I think your experience is flawed…"
ORN: "The Creators used it to aid in the modification of standard sentinel frames"
Cassandra Lionheart: "well, he did absorb what was left of mine.."
Pak ooohs.
Sakha debates on swimming now or mingling, and decides to mingle. These ARE her people after all.
Pak drifts towards the scent of fresh bread.
ORN: "It was also used on several occasions to destroy large swaths of blue slimes."
The lake is not far from the village. Sure enough, it is not much of a lake - maybe three meters at its deepest, and about fifteen across.
Eric_Lionheart looks at Cassandra. "Don't tell me you taught him about White Magic and he misunderstood your actions as such…"
Riia tries to figure out how to eat without mingling
ORN: "Cassie and Sakha both perform it with large penchants for destruction, and This Unit has obtained this knowledge directly."
ORN: "Furthermore, no known true healers have personalities comparable to the evil pencil-pushing one."
Cassandra_Lionheart looks at Eric and ORN and sighs, going to the lake. "He saw me use Aero a lot, with my sword work…"
ORN: "most are more laid back, such as Hector"
Sakha: "I don't use much White Magic, rockpile."
ORN nods
Eric Lionheart: "Well, there are a few…VERY few, I will add, White Magic spells that can inflict harm…"
ORN: "Exactly. Sakha is capable of white magic and often destroys entire enemy groups in moments"
Eric Lionheart: "Most of them are helpful in nature, like this for example."
Hector: "I'm not a healer, though. I just have to give out potions because Sakha refuses to use her healing magic."
Eric_Lionheart casts Null Element (Water) on ORN.
[OOC] WC GM: Riia: SPR check.
ORN stares and blinks
Sakha: "It's more effective blowing the enemy away!"
Eric Lionheart: "Sakha, could you hit him with your water magic for a moment?"
ORN: "That did not seem particularly effective"
Hector sighs. "Well, at least with Eric around, I'll have a little bit more money because I won't have to spend half the money we find restocking my potions."
Pak has wandered into the tavern. "Such a lovely smell~"
Riia rolled 1d100 and got 12 ( Total: 12 )
[OOC] Hector: That's a pass even with 1 Spr. :P
[OOC] Riia: Pass by 25
Sakha: "Oh?"
She grins. "e does deserve it." She casts Watera.
Cassandra_Lionheart looks at Hector and sighs "Sorry I had ORN absorb mine."
Eric_Lionheart smiles, the spell utterly ineffecting against the barrier Null Element provides.
ORN stares, blinks, and shrugs
While the mithra at the feast are chatty, Riia figures out that by keeping her head down, she can get the message across that she wishes to be a wallflower.
Hector: "I'm not mad at all."
Eric Lionheart: "You can't say that isn't useful or effective."
ORN: "She did that this afternoon too. So This Unit becomes less wet"
Sakha: "… You take the fun out of things, don't you…?"
Riia wallfloweres with a little bit of food
ORN: "… … … Is this to avoid re-grooming in humans and mithra?"
Cassandra Lionheart: "I know Hector."
Felicia spots it! "Awww. That's not so big…" She frowns dissappointed. Might as well eat first.
Eric Lionheart: "Sorry Sakha, I'm trying to teach him White Magic is not destructive…"
Hector gets some food, something to drink, and then sits down.
Pak looks around for some alcohol to go with his food.
ORN forms a massive lightning ball between both hands and fires at the nearby water
Cassandra_Lionheart also sees the lake, and doesn't care. The food can wait
ORN: "White Magic is an excellent source of destruction."
There is indeed alcohol! The bartender seems a bit too happy to serve Pak.
Eric Lionheart: "No it's not!"
Sakha: "Well I want to mingle, later guys!"
She runs off to the hall.
ORN: "This Unit is standing evidence of it ^^.
Pak gets a drink! And drinks it! "Mmm~"
ORN: "You seem to be taking this as less than the compliment it is intended as, however."
Cassandra Lionheart: "ORN, I just enpowered something within you with my White Magic. You took it all."
Riia wanders over by the bar and watches Pak
Pak: "Ahh, nothing like getting drunk at parties~"
Pak: "Oniichan taught me that!"
The beer is strong and hearty, though nowhere near as potent as dwarven or even elvaan drinks.
[OOC] Riia: Not that getting drunk is what Pak does…
[OOC] Riia: No, Pak gets WASTED.
Cassandra_Lionheart takes off her armor, and sits down at the edge of the water, and puts her feet in. "Ahhh."
[OOC] ORN: … and then violated if you're not careful, so your suggestion, your guard duty, bunnygirl!
Hector got a beer of midlevel strength 'cause he doesn't want to drink heavily until he's full of food.
Pak eaahs~s
[OOC] Hector: Pak becomes Yazan and Hambrabi when drunk.
Pak: "Heee~!"
Hector waves Pak over.
Pak: "You know…'
Sakha goes around her fellow mithra trying to learn about the pirates and how the last century has been out here, sampling familiar dishes.
The water is fresh and cool. It seems to be a very wide, relatively calm spot in a stream that passes by.
Pak heads over to Hector, giggling.
ORN jumps in to see what's in there
Eric_Lionheart avoids ORN, getting frustrated.
Cassandra easily sees evidence that it was dug out to create a swimming spot.
[OOC] ORN: the water
[OOC] Sakha: should I do an inquiry check?
Hector: "Stay close, so I can keep an eye on you. I don't want you to get violated by some frisky drunk girls."
ORN's Null Element keeps him dry, for a time.
ORN tries mobility while under that effect then
[OOC] WC GM: Sakha: don't bother - CoS is well over 100%.
Felicia orders a drink. It's been awhile since she's had non-plasma food.
ORN: "hm…"
Pak: "Aww…"
[OOC] Eric Lionheart: Is it over nine thousand?
Eric Lionheart: //))

[OOC] WC GM: Not quite that high.
Cassandra Lionheart: "I need this…I haven't done this in a while."// *looks to see if she is totally alone, and takes the rest of her stuff off, and puts it in her back pack* "A skinny dip won't hurt." *jumps in*
Pak: "But I ain't gotten myself laid since… since… dwarfland!"
Pak is already a bit drunk, grinning.
[OOC] ORN: well that oughta be a good view from the bottom of the lake
Hector: "Around here, you may wake up naked next to a girl who wants to get married and settle down immediately."
Pak: "Sakha doesn't really like it when I try to play with her…"
Hector: "And we can't have that."
Eric_Lionheart samples the various foods. At least it's keeping his mind off of ORN.
Pak: "Eeeh…"
Riia reels slightly from what Pak is saying
Hector gets another plate of food and a larger mug of beer.
Pak: "You've got a point, though…"
Pak: "I'll try to be careful there…"
The foods almost seem familiar…but not quite. Differently prepared dishes, some different plants.
Pak: "At least have SOME 'ntegrity."
Hector: "D'ya even think mithra females find hume males attractive? I mean, 'member how those V-words were all into me?"
Hector: "But, man…Sakha's cold as ice to me."
[OOC] WC GM: Roughly the different between Spanish and, say, German cuisine.
Cassandra_Lionheart gets to the edge of one of the sides of the lake, and float there for a bit, stomach down "Feels good."
Cassandra sees ORN below her.
Pak: "Sakha's cold t' everyone."
Hector munchmunch.
Pak: "Gotta fine someone warmer."
Pak looks over at Riia.
Hector: "I do, don't I?"
Pak: "Hey!"
The lake does not have much to it. It is a swimming hole, not much more.
Hector sighs.
Riia raises an eyebrow
Pak: "How's the food?"
Riia: //?

Cassandra_Lionheart Blinks and screams way out loud.
Riia: n.n
Riia smiles
Eric_Lionheart blinks, hearing the scream. //"That sounds like Cassandra…"
Hector: "Well, if'n I'm still a single man by th'end a'this, I ain't gonna cry."
Felicia guzzles her drink, and orders another. "Light, for a change."
Farmer: "So…Refuge lady. Ah, I shouldn' call ye that. What's yer name?"
Pak: "Eh…"
Hector: "I mean, c'mon. I'm not even twenty yet."
Eric_Lionheart goes to investigate.
Hector: "And you're not even eighteen."
ORN jumps up from the bottom
ORN: "Ye*blub*"
ORN sinks
Pak: "If I'm still single I'll probably end up with that guard from Mount'nburg."
ORN jumps out a little higher this time
The farmer looks at Sakha.
Cassandra Lionheart: "whatareyoudoinghereI'mtryingtorelaxwhatthehellsneakinguponmelikethat!"
Hector: "Mm. What was'er name ag'n? …Feel? Full? Fill?"
Sakha: "Sakha."
ORN: "This Unit now understands the joy of swimming. Water makes for an excellent view!"
ORN hugs, and lets go as he starts sinking to the bottom again
Hector drinks a bit.
Pak: "Fill, yeah."
Hector: "Least y'got someone waitin' for ya. And that's why you gotta survive this."
Cassandra_Lionheart blushes at the hug and goes down to help ORN come back up
Farmer: "Sakha, eh? Hmm. Older, traditional. Guess ye were born in Refuge, then?"
Pak: "…"
Pak droops.
Riia blinks at those ages and does some counting on her fingers
Pak: "Aw man…"
Sakha: "Of course."
Hector scritches Pak behind his ears.
Pak: "Y' reminded me of Patches."
Pak: "Or Fluffy. Or who'ever."
Riia blinks at those names and tilts her head.
Hector: "Ow. M'sorry, bro."
Cassandra Lionheart: "ORN I'm sorry for yelling!"
Pak: "Don' remember which right now."
Pak sighs.
ORN at the bottom and probably doesn't hear
ORN looks around, anything down there?
Hector: "Well, least they're gonna live on in yer memories."
Riia points at Pak and looks curious, very very curious
ORN looks around some more… any way… er… out?
Farmer: "Anyway. So, ah'm guessin' yew didn' know we had some contact witcha after th'…Exodus, I believe yew called it."
Cassandra_Lionheart grasps ORN and tries to pull him up
Pak: "S'pose…"
Pak hms?
Ahiru joins cassie as a duck swimming in the lake.
Farmer: "We used the tunnels to spah on peoples. Ne'er made official contact."
Pak: "Ah, Riia. What's up?"
Hector: "No worries! :D"
ORN shrugs and starts looking for stuff at the bottom
[OOC] Hector: You can always find change at the bottom of the pool. XD
Cassandra_Lionheart sees Ahiru and blinks, then give up trying to lift up ORN
Farmer: "Ne'er heard the Viera still lived. Guess they musta been at that one far continent where some of our folk were."
[OOC] Pak: Watch out for aids
Riia tries to figure out hot to say what she wants to ask…
[OOC] WC GM: Not this pool - it's empty.
[OOC] WC GM: Fortunately, AIDS does not exist in this world.
[OOC] Pak: Yayyy.
Riia picks at a tuft of fur and tilts her head inquisitively
Pak: "…?"
[OOC] Eric Lionheart: Well that is good. >.>
Pak: "…????"
Pak: "Here."
Cassandra_Lionheart swims next to Ahiru and waves "You know ORN is down there?"
Sakha: "Oh? Well it's not too surprising considering te efforts to keep the land seperate and all. And yeah, they're back on through the other tunnel, where we picked up Trombe. Hateful creatures, but funny…"
Pak creates a pool of shadow on the table.
Pak hands Riia a stick.
Sakha laughs. "Seems they were as scare of me as we were of them."
Pak: "Draw 'n it."
Riia writes "Fluffy - you know?"
Hector blinks at the pool of shadow.
Farmer: "O'er th' years, we had less 'n' less reports from 'em, until eventually we just heard nothin'. 'Course, bah then we had our own problems, so we kinda didn' care that much."
Eric_Lionheart finds his way to the lake at least, still investigating the earlier scream.
Pak: "Ah, yeah, Fluffy…"
Pak siiighs.
Farmer: "Oh! That'd be why th' pah-rates ne'er found yer mechobo."
Pak: "She was the avatar of Bio…"
Felicia finishes a round, and marches off to the lake. "¦D"
Pak: "An' also a researcher into Carrots…"
Farmer: "If 'twas on th' fahr side from Refuge, well, 'ey ne'er went 'AT far."
Pak: "An'… an'…"
Cassandra_Lionheart sees Eric, and puts her body underwater, so only her head is showing "ERIC! YOU ALSO!"
Hector: "She also jumped onta Pak's stick."
Pak: "…That was crude, Niichan!"
Pak: "Show some respect for the dead!"
Hector grins stupidly.
Eric_Lionheart eeps and blushes, turning around. "S…sorry Cassie!"
Pak looks pissed. T_T
[OOC] Hector: so tempted to do a lezard quote
ORN looks up for a moment and nods approvingly
Hector: "S…s…sorry."
Cassandra Lionheart: "Look..It is okay. You startled me."
Riia tries to figure out how to write it, then goes the simple route
Sakha: "Understandable… But after all the craziness it's nice to be among Mithra agin."
Riia writes sister
Pak: "Sister?"
Riia nods
Hector: ":O!"
Pak: "Oh, you were Fluffy's sis?"
Riia nods
Pak: "…Sorry about that…"
Riia shrugs
Riia puts her hands together and then pulls them pretty far apart
Hector: "You…weren't close, huh."
Cassandra Lionheart: "Um….Eric, can I… get my pack, so I can get dressed please?"
Riia writes, "long time"
Pak: "Ah, got it."
Eric_Lionheart gets the pack and hands it to Cassie without looking.
[OOC] Riia: Moar incest?
Hector: "Hm."
Pak: "You hadn't seen each other for a while."
Farmer: "Anyhow. We gathered th' spirits were goin' a mite crazy e'erywhere."
ORN leaps out of the water
Farmer: "Sure 'nough, Mer's been…less than helpful."
ORN: "There does not seem to be much at the bottom. The view is excellent, but movement is somewhat hampered"
Cassandra_Lionheart gets out of the water, and holds the pack over her front. "Thanks…Can I now get some privacy?"
Felicia: "Eh? What're you so skittish about Cassie?"
Riia munches on some delicious fish
Farmer: "Now, keep in mind, ah heard mos' o' this from mah mama and gramama, but I trust 'em."
Cassandra Lionheart: "Oh, Felicia, be careful, ORN is on the bottom of the lake."
[OOC] ORN: just lept out next to you guys ^^;
Pak mmphs.
Farmer: "Ah mahself once wen' as far as tha' Volcannon. Biggest thing ah ever did see mahself."
Pak: "I'm gonna go get another drink."
Sakha: "Yes, changing dwarves into rocks, Elvaan able to swim in Lava… The Spirits keep iron fists on their races…"
Cassandra_Lionheart see ORN and eeks again!
Cassandra Lionheart: "Nevermind, Felicia!"
Pak heads back to the barkeeper, looking less cheery than he had before.
Cassandra Lionheart: "Hey Orn, want to be helpful?"
ORN: "Of course"
Felicia shrugs, tossing her sword to the side and beginning to remove her armor.
Farmer: "Well, Mer didn' need t' change us that much, 'less she wan'ed make us able t' live unnerwater. Ah ain' ne'er heard ah no Mithra livin' down there, though, so ah dunno."
Cassandra Lionheart: "Stand straight up, and turn around please!"
Hector finishes up his food and gets a refill on his drink while he's at it.
Farmer: "Maybe she trahed. Maybe she failed, not being 's Bio-like 's Milf."
Hector: "My compliments to the chef, by the way."
ORN nods, not really sure why he should turn though
Farmer: "'Anks. Ah'll tell 'er."
Eric_Lionheart retreats to the inn.
Hector returns to his table.
Sakha: "That's good to hear! This adventure is going to be the best yet I think!"
Pak gets a bigger mug. He stays at the bar for a bit, sipping at it.
Farmer: "Anyway. So we're livin' on islands above th' sea. An' sometimes on drifts."
Hector is keeping an eye on Pak from afar.
Farmer: "'Course, th' islands each have differen' things we need. This island, fer instance, can make food but don' have much wood or metal."
Cassandra_Lionheart turns away from ORN, and takes her clothes out of the backpack, and puts them on. She then puts her armor on around the kna[sack and the sword hanging off the pack in a holder. "It is good to get out of that once in a while."
Felicia cannonballs in, after stripping down.
Farmer: "We ain' the only ones, but when people get tired o' livin' on fish an' kelp, they come here."
Sakha: "Does Mer ever seem to act directly? Or does she delegate to te pirates?"
Cassandra Lionheart: "You can turn around now, ORN. Thanks."
ORN turns
ORN: "… clothed again?"
Farmer: "Oh, she acts directly, for her favored ones."
Farmer: "An' who they are, changes. Ye never know WHO Mer'll back."
[OOC] Pak: …
[OOC] Pak: Wait..
Sakha: "But she doesn't act to punish anyone then?"
Cassandra Lionheart: "Yeah."
[OOC] Pak: Islands that can make food, but no wood or metal…
[OOC] Pak: …Dammit WC
Farmer: "'Course she does. Why d'you think ah warned ye away from th' sea?"
[OOC] WC GM: ?
Cassandra_Lionheart has on just the Cute armor set, and waves
[OOC] Pak: Settlers of Cat-tan. T_T
[OOC] Sakha: XD
[OOC] Felicia: lol
[OOC] Eric Lionheart: lawl
[OOC] Sakha: I wanna play now!
[OOC] Hector: i roffled heartily.
Cassandra Lionheart: "Hey ORN, can you hold my stuff. I want to eat for a bit?"
[OOC] WC GM: Not what I was actually think of, but it's close enough. ;)
[OOC] Hector: I want to play SRW or FES or something. D:
Sakha: "I was just checking… So she favors the pirates then, right?"
ORN nods
Pak drink~
Farmer: "Uh-huh. One particular set, too."
ORN heads over towards the inn
Farmer: "That crew what took the Juan."
Cassandra Lionheart: "Thanks."
*rushes into the food area, and looks for Riia*
Sakha: "Ohhhh? Which set? How do we recognize them?"
Felicia float~ "¦3"
Pak: "…IIii'm going for a swim! T_T"
Riia sees Cassie coming to the feast
Pak clangs his mug down.
Farmer: "Oh, don' worry. Yew look like yew've been through enough adventures 'at you'd know THESE folk on sight."
Sakha: "Really?"
Pak pulls his jacket off and heads towards the lake topless.
Cassandra_Lionheart sits down next to her and smiles "How are you doing?"
Riia smiles
Cassandra Lionheart: "Good. Welcome to the party."
*hold her hand out to shake it*
[OOC] Pak: I wonder if Pak will get a bunch of Mithra following him to peep on him. >_>;
Sakha: "It'd be nice to know anyway, because that's exactly where we need to go."
Farmer: "Yeah. Ah mean, 'ey got the thing 'at ev'ry girl dreams o' gettin'? An' know it? They're th' bosses on top, an' flaunt it."
[OOC] WC GM: Stealth check to avoid that, Pak.
[OOC] Pak: Any penalties for being drunk?
[OOC] WC GM: Though with a bonus, because the local Mithra are mostly well-mannered.
Sakha: "Every girl dreams… you mean a really good-looking guy?"
Pak rolled 1d100 and got 33 for a total of 33**
[OOC] Pak: Pass by 17
ORN sparkles
ORN: "She means treasure. Tall, strong, sparkling, sentient treasure."
ORN stands, posing
The farmer leers a bit. "Eh-heh. Yeah. Ah ain' never seem him before, but ah sure heard o' him."
Pak manages to slip out without Mithran pursuit.
Sakha: "Ohhhhh? Tell!"
Cassandra_Lionheart puts her hand down "How are you feeling Riia? You look sick? Have you been this way for a while?"
Farmer: "'Ey say his heart is as big as th' ocean. How he can love anyone who reaches him, even after heartbreak after heartbreak."
Felicia waves at Pak.
Riia thinks
Riia nods
Pak dives in next to felicia, clad only in his shorts. "Yo~"
Farmer: "The Juan's been something of a prahze the pah-rates keep tryin' t' steal from one another."
Pak: "Apparently Riia was Fluffy's sister."
Pak: "Funny, huh?"
[OOC] Riia: ….the Juan. As in Don Juan…
Pak swims~
[OOC] Hector: The Jaun? Is that like The Todd from Scrubs?
Sakha: "Juan? Is that his name?"
[OOC] WC GM: Riia gets it.
[OOC] Hector: You're no fun.
Farmer: "Ayup."
ORN: "hm.."
Farmer: "Oh! 'At's raight. Might soun' a little funny t' a Sakha."
Felicia: "Weird."
Sakha: "So Mer's favor follows him then ?"
Farmer: "Languages and tastes drifted o'er th' years, y'see."
Farmer: "Whatchew got in Refuge? Closer to mah gramama's tahme."
Felicia: "This lake is so small~… But ish better than nothin."
Cassandra Lionheart: "Just to let you know."
*whispers into her ear* "I felt sorry for the other Viera. The regent is a survivor of what had happened when we went there. I didn't like what was going on, but I felt for them."
Farmer: "An' yeah, whoever got him seems to get Mer on'er side more often 'an not."
Hector is too mellowed-out by the alcohol to start bitching out Cassie for sticking her nose where it doesn't belong.
ORN: "he may be mer"
Sakha: "Hmmm names where I come from are generally sharper… Like Sakha and Pak and Riiku and Tizaa…"
Hector finishes his last drink and then sits back, satisfied.
Riia shudders at what happened to the Viera
Farmer: "'Course, way I figger it, anyone what can keep the Juan aroun', has enough guts and strength t' impress Mer too, an' THAT'S the real reason."
Pak swims around and splashes Felicia!
Cassandra Lionheart: "You also huh?"
*she frowns, and hugs* "I'm so sorry."
ORN: "He may BE mer. Or more specifically mer's avatar"
Felicia: "!"
Pak giggles.
Felicia dunks Pak in retaliation!
The farmer laughs. "Yeah, raight! Him? Mer? He's a guy, fer Mer's sake!"
ORN points at Pak
Pak: "K-kyaAh~! Hehehehe~!"
Farmer: "No, no, if Mer HAS an avatar it'd prolly be one o' th' pah-rates."
Sakha looks at ORN. "Or maybe he's her son. May be possible." She smirks.
ORN: "This one is extremely popular with the females and could be mistaken for one. would the opposite not be possible?"
Pak blubs and squirms around.
ORN: "Pak? Mer's son?"
ORN: "… would he not have similar magics to yourself then?"
Sakha: "Nooooooooo, this Juan fellow."
Felicia: "Ha~"
ORN: "Perhaps, though that would require This Group to find out whom Mer obtains sexual favors from."
Sakha: "And Pak has similar magical capa bilities but no control."
Farmer: "Offspring o' Mer's avatar? Well…hmm…that, ah could see. Maybe."
Farmer: "If Mer has an avatar."
Pak sticks his tongue out at Felicia!
Sakha: "They all do, believe me."
Pak keeps splashing!
Felicia tackles Pak!
Pak: "K-kyaAhh~!"
Cassandra Lionheart: "Riia. I'll protect you, okay? If your found out, just rush behind me, and I'll do my best. Your welcome here with me."
Farmer: "Well, in any event…oh! Speaking o' the spirits, ah didn't tell yew 'bout th' clouds yet."
Felicia: "Now I win! >¦D"
Pak: "Aaah~! O/‘`/``/O"
Sakha: "Oh?"
Pak flails~! Naked elf hugs! Nooo!
Pak Escapes to the other side of the lake~!
Pak: "Aha~"
Farmer: "A bit o’er a week ago, th' clouds - which we think moogles came from, but we ne'er could get people up there…"
Farmer: "…well, laghtnan jus' started eruptin' fer no good reason."
Felicia blinks, and looks down at herself. "Oh!" She rubs her head, blushing. "Forgot >_>"
[OOC] Hector: Cassie is TEH LESBAIN.
Farmer: "And rain. And hail. And winds. And…well…storms."
Pak: "I-it's okay. n.n;"
Pak splashes her anyway!
Pak: "Here, level playing field."
Riia cocks her head and blinks
Pak tosses his damp shorts up onto the bank, then dives underwater.
Riia wonders if there is a clothing store that isn't closed for the feast?
ORN stares and nods
ORN thumbs up at pak
Farmer: "Focusin' on th' pah-rates, they did."
Felicia: "Hey! No hiding!"
She follows after.
Cassandra_Lionheart looks at Riia "What is up?"
Riia is disappointed. All of the town's populace are at the feast.
Pak explores Lakebottom!
Sakha: "Must be what Aerie was talking about…"
Riia sighs
[OOC] Felicia: Ahhh, gotta jet :/
Farmer: "As if Aer took offense t'…waitaminute, what'd yew say?"
[OOC] Riia: That's okay, Felicia and Pak are about ready to offscreen anyway
Cassandra Lionheart: "Can you tell me Riia?"
[OOC] Felicia: As per my aformentioned employee thing
Riia tilts her head
Sakha: "Ah, a moogle aquaintance of ours."
Riia: //?

[OOC] Felicia: lulz
[OOC] WC GM: Yeah, we should wrap up soon.
[OOC] Eric Lionheart: Sounds good to me.
Farmer: "A moogle named Aerie? Nah. Naw, couldn' be!"
[OOC] Pak: We can have more fun later~
Cassandra Lionheart: "You look..disappointed?"
[OOC] Hector: no complaints. I've spent all day trying to reach my friends with no avail so I want to rage around.
Sakha: "Could be she says she's been watching the Volcannon for a century."
Riia tugs at her robe, then points at Cassie. It's her robe, after all.
The farmer pales a bit. //"That's impossible! No moogle live that long!"
Riia tugs at the robe, taps her chest, and shrugs. It can wait.
Cassandra Lionheart: "Oh. No worries. Keep. It just reminds me of something real bad right now."
Sakha: "… now that you mention it…"
Sakha: "But that's what she said."
Farmer: "Aerie is…was…Aerie's tha one who goofed up th' Volcannon shot. 'Cordin' t' mah gramama."
Riia tilts her head questioningly
ORN: "Some footage and several people tell us the shot may have been deflected by something."
Farmer: "Somethin' came outta th' Moon. She was th' one guidin' where th' shot went. Didn' get it aroun' in tahme."
Sakha: "The Volcannon shot got goofed because of the damn bunnies."
ORN: "Most likely it was the Viera colony ship"
Cassandra Lionheart: "Its my families…former families….signatures wardrobe for White Mages. But I'm not a white mage anymore. Nor am I part of the family for that matter."
Riia nods understandingly
Riia blinks, looks back over the sentence, and is confused.
Cassandra Lionheart: " mother kicked me out of the family."
Farmer: "Nah. Even if you COULDA…even if it was…no. There's no way THAT Aerie'd still be ahlaive."
Riia blinks and stands bolt upright
Hector has since gone to bed.
Which is why the transceiver hears none of this.
Riia looks at Cassie and sits back down slowly…
Riia shakes her head and tries to understand.
Cassandra Lionheart: "Um…she…didn't like me taking up swordfighting. And she kicked me out with limited resorces."
Riia mimes rocking a baby to sleep and shakes her head sadly.
Sakha: "Well, whatever… I'm going for a swim."
Hector is totally out of it right now and snoring his ass off.
Cassandra Lionheart: "She also…barred me from all the towns except Refuge."
Sakha: "Oh yeah I didn't get your name…
Farmer: "Ahh, me. Ah mus' be gettin' tired, hearin' things y'all ain' sahyan'."
Pak pokes his head out of the water. >_> <_<
Cassandra Lionheart: "I'm sorry Riia. I guess I'm just bitter with her."
*looks around* "Okay. Time for bed it looks like."
Riia nods in agreement
Riia looks for a nice, safe roof
Cassandra_Lionheart gets up, and smiles "Want to room with me?"
Farmer: "Oh, me? Name's Terceira."
Sakha: "Yeah, a lot softer than the names back home."
Sakha: "Want to join me in a dip Terci?"
Pak swims up to the edge of the lake near Sakha…
Pak considers splashing.
Pak: "…'
Pak considers the concequences and swims away.
Riia shrugs and nods
Cassandra Lionheart: "Okay. No worries. We have ORN also. So he'll let us know if someone tries something."
Terceira: "Nah, ah gotta get tah bed."
Riia relaxes slightly
Cassandra Lionheart: "Come on."
*puts her arm across Riia's shoulder* "Welcome to our adventure."
Sakha strips to her underwear and dives in.
Terceira: "But ah'll leave tha doors on yer rooms unlocked. G'night, y'all."
Pak waves. "Hi Sis~ Having a swim too?"
Sakha: "Of course."
Pak: "I was gonna splash you before you got in, but you have water magic…"
Pak: "So instead, I'll do this!"
Pak dives and grabs her feet!//
Sakha: "Hey!"
[OOC] Pak: Okay, we can finish up on Sakha and Pak swimming together.
[OOC] WC GM: 8000 XP each.
