EC Session 5.13

Mid-day, Merch 1 Aerday. //
The trip back from the backup farm has been quiet. Too quiet. But it is almost complete now.
It has taken about three, maybe three and a half, hours in total.
[OOC] WC GM: Awareness, all.
Cassandra Lionheart rolled 1d100 and got 91 for a total of 91
Felicia rolled 1d100 and got 77 ( Total: 77 ) **
Hector rolled 1d100 and got 21 for a total of 21
Riia rolled 1d100 and got 35 ( Total: 35 )
[OOC] Cassandra Lionheart: fail by 5
[OOC] Felicia: Pass by 22 :B
ORN rolled 1d100 and got 73 ( Total: 73 )
[OOC] Hector: Pass by 79 without penalty.
Pak rolled 1d100 and got 85 for a total of 85
[OOC] Pak: passu by 15
[OOC] ORN: pass by 27
Eric Lionheart rolled 1d100 and got 77 for a total of 77
[OOC] Riia: Pass by 22.
[OOC] Riia: ….dragon time!
[OOC] Eric Lionheart: Pass by 11.
Those who pass, except for Hector, see two old Mithra poke their heads out of the entrance ahead. The same ones you met at the baths.
[OOC] Hector: Wait, what?
Hector happens to be looking backwards at that moment.
[OOC] Hector: I said PASS BY 79.
[OOC] Pak: You'll see.
[OOC] WC GM: Exactly.
[OOC] Riia: Yeah.
Pak hopes they aren't still naked x_x
[OOC] WC GM: Means you get the most important bit.
Pak: "Hello!"
They are not. They seem to be wearing armor.
Cassandra_Lionheart doesn't notice. Trying to keep the food from spilling out of her bag
Pak sighs in relief.
ORN nods
Hector quirks an eyebrow up. Why is he the only person who ever notices these things?
Eric Lionheart: "Hmm."
Hector: "…is it me, or is the moon swinging by us even faster than usual?"
The two sentries look to the group. One of them waves to the group and nudges her companion. "Oh, hey there! Hey, you, go get Primeira."
Eric Lionheart: "Huh?"
Eric_Lionheart turns around.
The other sentry pops back inside.
[OOC] Riia: Wuh-oh, earthquake?
Sure enough, the inner moon has just crested the horizon in the distance.
Cassandra Lionheart: "Huh?"
Hector points at the sky. "I keep seeing it."
Pak: "Huh? Wait, wait…"
It will be maybe about ten minutes until it makes another pass.
Pak: "We JUST saw it!"
Riia looks for Sniffer to keep her steady
Pak: ">_<; This isn't good. How can it be going FASTER?!"
Sniffer is quickly making for the entrance.
Eric Lionheart: "I suggest we seek cover."
ORN: "This makes sense, being closer but… Accelerating?"
Riia follows with what she's carrying
[OOC] WC GM: You last saw it about three hours ago. Which is faster, yes.
Eric Lionheart: "Accelerating is bad, right?"
Hector: "My guess is that Aer is makin' the thing go around really, really fast so it doesn't fall on us. So we gotta speed up like a red comet or things'll probably get worse."
Felicia: "In the case of the moon, probably."
Cassandra Lionheart: "Yeah!"
ORN: "Perhaps not bad… IF he can accelerate it enough"
Hector: "And it's havin' a really weird effect on things down here, though."
Eric Lionheart: "Now I don't know much about how the moon works, but I figure something that big going around the planet THAT fast can't be good."
Riia shrugs
You can see the red of volcanos going off under the moon in the distance.
Riia twiddles with her stick…producing "slower = lower"
Riia replaces that with "but still tides"
Hector: "I wonder how the underground elves're doin' with all the volcanoes spewin' shit all over the place."
Pak hmms.
Pak: "A-anyway."
Cassandra Lionheart: "We got to worry about ourselves first!"
Pak: "Should we get inside?"
Hector: "Probably."
Riia shrugs
Riia throws out "earthquakes"
Cassandra_Lionheart runs for the enterance
OldMithra: "What? You see something back there?"
Hector thumbs behind him as he turns. "The moon's speedin' up."
Hector: "if it stops, it's gonna fall straight on us, so it's better than stoppin'."
ORN: "It will have to gain altitude to reduce the damages of its acceleration… otherwise it only makes things worse."
[OOC] Riia: That's orbital mechanics for ya, ORN, if you accelerate it it WILL gain altitude.
Hector: "C'mon, let's get this delivered."
[OOC] ORN: you could also accelerate downwards a little ;p
[OOC] Riia: Mind you, Grav can just gently carress with the orbit as well.
Hector starts heading into the cave.
[OOC] WC GM: True, but if it loses altitude then it makes orbits more often. Which is what's happening.
[OOC] Hector: Not like we can do anything right now, so let's just ADVANCE THE DAMN PLOT.
[OOC] ORN: yup
Fortunately, the party has enough time to get inside before the earthquake and avalanche start…but not by much.
[OOC] Riia: I'm still not sure I'd rather be inside for the earthquake.
Pak ducked inside like superfast.
[OOC] ORN: yeah.. ^^;;;;;;;
OldMithra: "Dearie me! This is worse than last time!"
[OOC] Hector: You need to stop looking over your shoulder or you're going to trip over something.
Cassandra Lionheart: "Yeah…Come on, lets get some shelter."
Eric_Lionheart goes inside, not a fan of becoming a pancake.
OldMithra: "Good thing we built this place to last."
Sniffer: "Wait…weren't you going to be digging a new tunnel?"
OldMithra: "Yeah, but Primeira wanted us on lookout duty for you instead."
[OOC] Hector: Why do I have the sudden urge to call Sniffer "Sniff-chan"?
Sniffer is already running, having dropped her sack of goods.
Riia: //=S //
[OOC] Pak: Did the guards we fixed up come back?
[OOC] WC GM: No, they stayed at the farm.
[OOC] Pak: Oh, kay.
[OOC] Hector: Well, they're gonna be dragon-food. Or pancakes. Or both.
[OOC] Hector: Everyone without a name that gets fixed up by the heroes just ends up dying anyway. It's a rule.
[OOC] Riia: Eh, they've weathered quakes before.
[OOC] WC GM: They're high up enough to avoid the worst of the avalanche. Dragons - well, you don't know how they've avoided those.
OldMithra: "…? Now why'd she run off like that?"
[OOC] Hector: Dragon turns into human form, bangs mithras, decides not to kill something that gives good head.
Pak: "Hmm…"
[OOC] Pak: x_x;
The old mithra leads you through the entrance tunnel, to the foyer.
Cassandra Lionheart: "She might have been afraid?"
[OOC] Pak: Well, it might have something to do with why they're seabloods now…
OldMithra: "Just drop your food here. I'll get it put away."
ORN: "Of?"
Riia leaves food…
Hector puts the food sacks down.
ORN dumps the sacks he was carrying
Pak drops food. Looks around to make sure everyone's inside.
Cassandra_Lionheart puts her sack of food down and looks to ORN "Maybe she didn't want to hear if from Primeria about running from battle?"
Eric Lionheart: "Hmm…"
Everyone is inside. The room is still shaking a bit from the earthquake, but the mithra's claims about structural integrity seem true.
Felicia drops a sack near the others, looking around.
Eric Lionheart: "I wonder…"
Cassandra Lionheart: "About what Eric?"
Eric Lionheart: "No, it's nothing. I'm likely wrong."
Cassandra_Lionheart looks at Eric "You usualy speak your mind…so spill it."
Pak: "…>_>"
ORN: "?"
Pak frowns. Thinking about something.
Hector isn't worrying about it too much.
Cassandra_Lionheart is looking at Eric, hands on her hips
Felicia: "…"
Cassandra Lionheart: "Come on. Say it, or I'll make you say it!"
Eric_Lionheart whispers to Cassandra. "I noticed that Sniffer was able to run from the fight…and yet the mithra guards we fought were being controled and Juan resisted the control. Why would Sniffer not be immobilized by a control attempt?"
OldMithra: "What's this about a fight?"
Riia sighs
Hector scratches the tip of his nose.
ORN: "She is not 'infected' or whatever the term they used, as they say."
ORN: "Similar to Sakha and Pak"
Riia twiddles with her stick, revealing the word "Mer"
Cassandra Lionheart: "Riia could be right. And ORN has a point also. I guess we have to find out, huh?"
Pak: "They must have gotten Salt Water in them somehow."
Pak: "Or something."
Eric Lionheart: "If she was born here, and I assume that to be the case…"
Pak: "…Wait."
Pak: "waitwait."
Riia raises an eyebrow
Pak looks over at Eric.
Hector: "Didn't they say that they found her?"
Felicia: "Hm?"
Pak: "Yeah, I was gonna say!"
Cassandra Lionheart: "Yeah they did."
Pak: "She wasn't born here, so why doesn't she have Seablood?"
Eric Lionheart: "Hmm. That's a valid point."
Hector: "So in all likelihood, she's not a native of this immediate area."
ORN nod
Eric Lionheart: "As I said, I was likely mistaken and that proves it."
Pak: "But that doesn't explain why those guards were infected either."
Pak hmms.
Cassandra Lionheart: "Very true."
Hector shrug. "I wouldn't worry 'bout it too much."
Riia raises an eyebrow at Eric
ORN: "Perhaps This Group should inquire as to the exact method of infection"
Pak looks over at Sakha and Juan.
Riia fiddles and throws up a "how wrong?"
Cassandra_Lionheart walks over to Eric and pat him on the shoulder "its okay."
Pak: "That'd be useful."
Sakha is snuggling with him not paying attention.
Eric Lionheart: "Wrong enough, Riia."
Pak hrm. "Primey should be by shortly."
Juan is walking with an arm around Sakha, looking around.
Riia removes the "wrong" part, leaving "how"
Juan: "…should she not have been here by now?"
Hector narrows his eyes at Juan.
Riia frowns
Pak: "I think I have a good idea of a potential infection method. But…"
Riia worries
Eric Lionheart: "…Maybe we should investigate and save this discussion for later."
Sakha: "Who? Primeira? That ruckus outside probably slowing her down."
Cassandra_Lionheart nods
Pak: "I think I haven't learned enough yet to make any real guesses.'
OldMithra: "If you want to find her, she's in the back supervising the new tunnel construction."
ORN looks to eric
ORN: "How does one infect things normally?"
Cassandra Lionheart: "Thank you sir."
[OOC] Cassandra Lionheart: madam…
[OOC] WC GM: -sir +madam
[OOC] WC GM: Unless you want her to bap ya. :P
Eric Lionheart: "I wonder if those earthquakes effected the tunnel…"
Hector furrows his brow. He may have a plan of some sort, but he's not sure.
Pak: "Infections?"
Cassandra Lionheart: "I mean madam…Geeze."
Pak: "Like, uh. Normal, non-magical ones?"
Pak heads back towards the tunnel.
Eric Lionheart: "Maybe we should head to the tunnel and again save this discussion for later…"
Juan: "I wonder as well. A new tunnel would not have had time to put up supports yet, no?"
Hector starts walking to where Prim's expected to be.
Eric_Lionheart heads for the tunnel as well.
Juan follows, still cuddling Sakha.
Cassandra_Lionheart follows Eric
Pak: "Well, ORN, you probably wouldn't know about normal diseases."
Felicia follows along.
ORN shakes head no at pak
Pak: "Since you're made of material that isn't good for carrying such things."
Pak: "I know that… uh…"
The party hears furious scrabbling ahead - the sound of small rocks going everywhere.
Pak sweatdrops.
ORN: "hm.."
Eric Lionheart: "Alot of things can cause a infection, ORN. A simple cut can."
Pak: "ORN, we'll save that for later. Go eat, it sounds like there's been a cave-in!"
ORN: "How? … hm, Very well."
Eric_Lionheart prepares his healing magic.
Pak is glad he didn't have to try and make up things for how infections work. He… really doesn't know much
ORN excitedly heads forward hoping its good
Rounding a bend - indeed, there has been a cave-in. Sniffer is trying to dig through it, but is not very effective.
Cassandra_Lionheart rushes to see if she can help move some rocks
Riia: //=O //
Riia helps as much as she can…
ORN rams an arm in and gives it a taste
The rocks are bland, but edible to ORN.
ORN: "… … Why is it that everything here….."
Sakha uses Aera in an attempt to sweep the rock away.
[OOC] WC GM: STR check from those digging through - except for ORN (VIT) and Sakha (MAG).
ORN reluctantly goes through the damn imitation-brand-gruel
Eric_Lionheart aids Sakha in the Aera efforts with his own magic.
Hector starts picking up decent-sized rocks and tossing them out of the way.
Cassandra Lionheart rolled 1d100 and got 83 for a total of 83
Sakha rolled 1d100 and got 2 ( Total: 2 )
ORN rolled 1d100 and got 65 ( Total: 65 )
Hector rolled 1d100 and got 23 for a total of 23
[OOC] WC GM: MAG from Eric too
Riia rolled 1d100 and got 90 ( Total: 90 )
[OOC] Hector: That's a pass.
[OOC] ORN: fail by 7
Eric Lionheart rolled 1d100 and got 67 for a total of 67
Pak sweatdrops. He's got arms too skinny to move rocks. ;_;
[OOC] Cassandra Lionheart: fial by 28
[OOC] Hector: So pass by…38.
ORN: "… … bleh"
ORN and Eric make holes. Sakha makes a BIG hole.
[OOC] Eric Lionheart: Pass by…7.
The cave-in is soon cleared.
[OOC] Riia: Yeah…not from me.
Pak: "Wait, I c- dammit. x_x"
Eric Lionheart: "…Sakha…your magical skill is incredible."
Felicia just watches; Everyone else seems to have it covered.
Pak just remembered he had Stona."
Sakha: "I practice."
Hector: "I gotta say, she did the lion's share of the work."
Pak: "…I could have melted the rocks with magic ._."
Cassandra_Lionheart sighs
Hector: "Probably not even her plan."
ORN: "Sakha is most capable at destruction. An oft beautiful sight"
The other old mithra is revealed in the cave-in, having been holding stones over her head to make a cavity.
OldMithra: "Thanks. This took me by surprise."
OldMithra: "Primeira's further ahe-"
Hector: "No problem."
Sniffer races past now that the way is clear.
ORN follows
Pak continues after her!
Cassandra_Lionheart follows also
ORN: "Please find less bland cave-ins!"
OldMithra: "Heh. She's worried about her adopted mommy, she is."
Riia too
ORN rushes after her
Eric_Lionheart follows as well.
Hector Belmont-walks after everyone.
[OOC] Hector: The Belmont Walk, yo.
Felicia ditto.
[OOC] Hector: Felicia does the Belmont Walk, too?!
No further cave-ins are to be found. Most of the town's residents are found at the end of the tunnel, checking each other for injuries.
[OOC] WC GM: She learned from the best?
[OOC] Hector: …god help me, I lol'd.
Pak: "Huu x_x"
Pak: "Okay, listen!"
Eric_Lionheart gets to healing up any wounded.
[OOC] ORN: I'm not sure having one leg grown literally in front of the other is all that great in not-a-sidescroller ;p
Pak: "Just about every 3 hours there's gonna be another quake. The moon's accelerating in its orbit!"
[OOC] WC GM: Nah, just walk sideways in that case.
Pak: "So get this tunnel reinforced!"
Sniffer is found glomped onto Primeira, who is petting her on the head and reassuring her.
Hector goes over to Prim and Sniff-chan. "Ah, so you're alright. That's good."
Riia tries not to look too worried…
Eric Lionheart: "Or stop using the tunnel. Either one works."
MineWorker: "Three hours? It is speeding up. We thought we had another hour to get the reinforcements up. Thanks."
Cassandra Lionheart: "Primeira, are you all right?"
Primeira: "We're fine. We'd started to get the reinforcements in when it hit."
[OOC] Hector: All I can think of when I hear "reinforcements" is SRW. D:
Cassandra_Lionheart nods and smiles "Good to hear."
ORN: "Do further reinforcements require assistance?"
Primeira: "Although this one could do with being less scared."
She smiles and gently bops Sniffer.
Primeira: "No, we're fine."
Cassandra Lionheart: "Sniffer is all right."
Pak: "Huu…"
Pak: "Okay! :x"
Cassandra Lionheart: "Sometimes, it is best to run."
Primeira: "Since you're back, I assume you got the food?"
Hector: "That we did."
Pak: "We had some problems."
Cassandra_Lionheart nods
Primeira quirks an eyebrow. "Problems?"
Pak: "Your guards seem to be infected with sea-ness."
Felicia: "Nothing we couldn't handle, but…"
Felicia: "Yeah."
ORN: "Ah, yes"
ORN turns to pak and eric
Primeira: "Explain."
ORN: "You were going to explain how infections function"
Pak: "Well, they tried to attack us… :x"
Primeira: "…"
Primeira's eyes grow wide a bit.
Sniffer: "I…I'm sorry…I tried to lead them…"
Riia pets Sniffer
Pak: "They're still alive, dun worry >_>"
Primeira: "What exactly happened?"
Eric Lionheart: "They attacked us, we knocked them out."
Primeira: "What? Why?"
ORN: "… They attacked."
Hector: "I assume they were possessed by Mer or something like that."
Riia nods
Primeira: "…MER."
She frowns.
Hector: "We couldn't even talk to 'em 'till we knocked 'em around."
Sniffer: "I…I tried to fight…but…"
[OOC] Riia: I don't recall ever talking to them, we took the food and left.
ORN: "Violence worked quite well. They were better now."
[OOC] Hector: I mean in a general "They were so berserk that all they wanted to do was fight, at which point, they regained their senses."
[OOC] Hector: Sort of way. fux.
Primeira: "I see. Well, thank you for that."
ORN pats sniffer on the head once and nods
Hector: "We have to plan our next move, as well."
Primeira: "Were there any other difficulties?"
Cassandra Lionheart: "Well, Juan was fighting it to not attack us."
Primeira: "Ju…"
ORN: "The food had already been prepared for shipping"
Pak SMACKS Cassie.
Pak hits her, like, kinda hard.
Pak: "T_T;"
Felicia blinks.
Hector smirks. He's not gonna scold Pak for that.
Juan is very much NOT visible at this time. Probably hanging back, snuggling with Sakha.
Primeira: "You mean…THE Juan?"
Riia shrugs
Eric Lionheart: "…"
Cassandra Lionheart: "Yes."
Riia sighs heavily
Primeira: "What's he doing here? And able to fight?"
Eric Lionheart: "Cassandra, you idiot."
ORN shakes head no at that last part
Pak: "He's…"
ORN: "He appears paralyzed in combat."
Pak: "We rescued him.'
Cassandra_Lionheart looks at Eric "What?"
Primeira: "Isn't he the prize on Maria's…"
Pak sigh.
Eric Lionheart: "We rescued him after defeating Maria."
Riia twiddles - "not any more"
[OOC] ORN: now he's the prize on sakha's…
Ahiru: "We freed him He didn't like them."
Hector: "He's a free man. As free as any of us are."
Cassandra_Lionheart hits smacks her forehead "DAMN IT."
[OOC] Riia: Huh - I kinda expected Eric of all to be a little gentler talking about us killing Prim's mom.
ORN: "Save for Mer's control attempts…"
Hector: "Well, besides the whole Mer thing."
[OOC] ORN: and they say I have no tact ;p
Riia realises something…
[OOC] Riia: Well, you don't…but it's usually Eric saying it, too.
[OOC] Sakha: Does this mean Juan is… THEIR FATHER?
Cassandra_Lionheart sighs and shuts up
Primeira: "And now he's here. Hmm."
[OOC] Riia: Possible but extremely unlikely.
Primeira: "You…didn't take him HERE, did you?"
Pak: "U-uh…"
[OOC] Riia: Maria left the three when she went to try to defeat Mer, and wound up becoming Mer's avvie.
Cassandra Lionheart: "No, he is not here."
Pak ._.;
Hector: "I s'pose he'll go off somewhere once he finds someplace he thinks he belongs."
Ahiru: "Here where? We left him with the old lady."
[OOC] Riia: Juan, as far as we know, has been with the pirates all along - though….
[OOC] ORN: indeed.
Primeira: "…"
[OOC] Eric Lionheart: Eric also knows the planet is getting closer to doom and really wants to speed things up.
Pak: "._."
[OOC] Riia: Though that would be a great way to spread the Mer-dominance…
Pak: "Wait, what old lady?"
Eric Lionheart: "…I thought he was with Sakha."
Pak looks at Ahiru all T_T;;; like.
Eric Lionheart: "…"
Pak bleeehs. Noone has their story straight.
Pak: "…Eric."
Primeira: "I…see. I'll go have to have a…talk…with him."
She smiles.
Cassandra_Lionheart looks at Pak, and shakes her head
Ahiru: "The old cat-lady at the entrance."
Riia shakes her head at Prim
Riia stands in front
Hector: "Have fun tryin' to get past Sakha for that."
ORN: "Most likely."
Riia holds up a sign saying "About?"
Primeira: "Sak…wait. He was here earlier? You didn't just find him?"
Riia also checks Prim for weapons.
Riia nods
Pak: "Huh?"
Eric Lionheart: "Depending on what you want to talk about, I might have to insist on most if not all of us being there as well."
Riia can easily see that Primeira is indeed armed. Sword only, though.
Primeira: "Well, but first. Your trip. Did you run into anything else?"
Pak: "No, no dragons."
Primeira: "That's a relief. I was counting on Sniffer for that."
Sniffer: "I…I'm sorry I couldn't…"
[OOC] Riia: Really I'm just wondering what she means by "talking…" because I'm 20% confident she wants to talk to him with his, err, 'sword' but 80% confident she wants to talk to him with her sword.
Primeira: "What? No dragons. That's what I needed you for."
Sniffer: "B-but I ran away from danger!"
Primeira: "Yes. Exactly."
ORN: "This Group would gladly meet with these dragons. However, none were found."
Sniffer: "…"
ORN: "?"
Pak leans down to sniffer, patting her head.
Primeira looks at the group. "Did something…ELSE happen I should know about, regarding my Sniffer?"
Pak: "As a male who's had to work his way up in the world, knowing when to run was a very useful skill~"
Hector: "I'm not sure what you're getting at, but nothin' weird happened."
Felicia shakes her head.
Cassandra Lionheart: "Well, she didn't freeze up like the others did."
ORN: "Ah. It seemed like she was chasing down an alternate threat. She found none and became sad, however."
Pak: "It's okay to know when you're outmatched. Just make sure you get away safely and get stronger for next time, okay? n.n"
Pak: "And yeah, she didn't have any infectious issues."
Primeira blinks. "…oh. You mean she ran away from combat screaming?"
Pak: "Yup."
Sniffer O_Os.
ORN: "This Unit is still awaiting explanations on how these work, Pak"
ORN shrugs *tried*
Pak: "This one seems to work by…"
Primeira: "She does that. Like I said, that's what I was coun-"
Cassandra_Lionheart nods "Not exactly, but she ran of her own free will."
Sniffer slugs her HARD.
Pak pfft XD
Sniffer: "W H A T ? ! ?"
Hector: "Mm."
ORN: "Why would you count on such a thing?"
Cassandra Lionheart: "Oh geeze. No fighting, please??"
ORN: "… … … how?"
Riia: //=D //
Sniffer: "I…I've tried to be brave for you! And you say you COUNT on me to be a c…coward?"
Riia isn't laughing out loud, but she's obviously laughing
Eric Lionheart: "…"
Pak pouts. His message didn't seem to cheer her up.
Primeira: "No, sweetie. I count on you to be wise."
Felicia nods.
Sniffer snarls and runs off.
Pak: "Hey, Primey."
Primeira: "…oh dear. She didn't take that very well."
Felicia sighs. "Not surprising."
Cassandra_Lionheart sighs
Pak: "How does the seawater infection spread anyway?"
Cassandra Lionheart: "Sniffer…"
Primeira: "Infection? What infection?"
ORN: "Indeed. Please explain how infections function"
Hector: "It seems that only mithras from this specific area can be controlled by Mer."
Felicia: "The 'Mer in your blood' thing."
Pak: "And do you guys have mer in your blood too?"
Primeira raises an eyebrow. "I think I may need to ask you about this, not the other way around."
Pak shrugs. "We wanna know what happened."
Pak: "…Oh."
ORN: "How does one get Mer inside them?"
Pak: "Okay, okay… uhh…"
Pak: "Let's get Juan and…"
Primeira looks at one of the mine workers. "You clean up here. I need to talk to these people."
Pak: "All sit down for a chat someplace. Okay?"
MineWorker: "Aye aye!"
Primeira ushers the group back up the tunnel. "Yes, that sounds like a good idea."
Cassandra_Lionheart follows Primeira
Hector thinks that it's good that Sniff-chan stood up for herself.
ORN: "hm."
Pak: "Anyway."
Pak: "Eric, could you explain to ORN how NORMAL infections work?"
Pak: "I-it… uh… has something to do with…"
Pak sweatdrops. Still doesn't really know.
Hector: "Can't we just give Orn a pile of books about this kinda stuff so we don't have t'keep explainin' things to him?"
ORN: "Would you?"
Hector: "It's becomin' a headache."
The group soon finds themselves in a makeshift lounge. Enough chairs are scattered around for all to sit.
Juan rejoins the group with Sakha shortly after they enter.
Cassandra_Lionheart takes a seat and waits for Primeira to sit down and talk
Primeira: "So. The Juan."
Pak nods.
Hector takes a seat, then once again gives an angry hateful look to Juan.
Juan applies hand to forehead.
Juan: "I had a feeling this would happen."
Pak: "Yeah, sorry. x_x"
Sakha looks at Prim territorally.
Pak: "Your cover got blown…"
Hector: "It's entirely Cassie's fault for not being able to shut up."
Riia coughs
Cassandra_Lionheart sighs and shakes her head "I get it okay."
Pak: "…Sorry."
Riia waggles a hand
Juan: "It is alright. I can attempt to hide."
ORN: "It may, however, aid This Group in understanding how the guards obtain some of Mer within themselves."
Riia nods in agreement with ORN.
Pak: "Yeah, we need to understand how this infection process works."
[OOC] Sakha: That sounds wrong ORN
Juan sits, pointedly seating Sakha on his lap - cuddling her, but also positioning her like a shield.
Riia frowns at this….
Eric Lionheart: "…"
Sakha blushes.
[OOC] Riia: It sounds wrong, but it may be right. =p
Juan: "Besides, I have my own protection."
[OOC] Riia: Do you have a little captain in you?
[OOC] ORN: indeed.
Eric Lionheart: "Hmm."
[OOC] ORN: how'd ya like somethin big blue and wavy inside ya?
Juan: "Might I ask exactly what you are insinuating?"
Juan looks at ORN.
Riia fiddles with her sign - "You seen Mer at work."
ORN: "This Unit is attempting to understand how infections work, as this was mentioned. This Group also seeks answers as to how one becomes afflicted by Mer's control."
Riia replaces that with "You show much insight."
ORN: "For example, why only Mithra in this region appear affected, and still, not all to the same degree"
Juan nods at Riia. "Ah. For a moment, I was afraid you meant to imply that I had somehow slept with all of them or something. Which is of course absurd."
ORN: "If the answers to both these questions happened to coincide, it would require far less questioning."
ORN: "… Is this how it works? Then Sakha would be…"
Riia shakes her head
Sakha: "VERY."
she growls.
Riia coughs
Pak: "T_T"
Riia holds out "Sniffer said no"
ORN: "true."
Riia nods…
ORN: "How, then?"
ORN looks back at Pak and Eric
Pak hmm.
Riia raises an eyebrow and looks at Pak…
Pak: "I was taught at school that some diseases CAN be transmitted in such a fashion."
Eric Lionheart: "…"
Riia nods, but still thinks
Sakha: "Maybe it's just the water in the area or that Mer has played with these Mithra so long."
Riia holds up "how many guys seen here?"
Juan: "Indeed."
Pak: "But seeing as this isn't exactly a normal 'disease'…"
Pak: "We need to know other methods."
Juan: "The water gets in the food. Also, the Mithra must drink. Eventually that has some effect."
Juan: "If that is Mer's method."
Hector: "Then why wasn't Sniffer affected?"
Juan: "That is a good question. Perhaps she is immune?"
Hector: "And also Pak and Sakha. And then I took a bath! But I'm a hume, and I don't think Mer cares much for them."
Juan: "Primeira - where exactly does Sniffer come from?"
Sakha: "Maybe it's all the meat she eats?"
Primeira: "…I don't know. Terci found her first, from one of the spies."
ORN: "How would go a long way to clearing many of these questions…"
Primeira: "She came here in short order, washed up like so much of the rest of Mer's rejects."
Cassandra_Lionheart listens in
Primeira: "It's possible she's from Refuge."
Hector: "Hm."
Hector: "How long has she been here?"
[OOC] Sakha: Lore: History check for Mithra child lost in the water?
Primeira: "About five years now."
[OOC] WC GM: Sure.
Sakha rolled 1d100 and got 17 ( Total: 17 )
Hector: "Hm."
[OOC] Riia: Huh, unless there are a LOT of penalties on that…
[OOC] Sakha: Pass by 33
[OOC] Sakha: pr er 83
[OOC] WC GM: Results PMed
Riia thinks for a bit.
Sakha: "I remember hearing a story about a blind child lost at the eastern temple some years back."
[OOC] WC GM: Navigation check, if anyone wants.
Sakha: "Those temples are the passages out of refuge to the other sections of the world, so she must be one and the same then."
Felicia: "Washed up…"
Hector rolled 1d100 and got 50 for a total of 50
Felicia rolled 1d100 and got 36 ( Total: 36 )
[OOC] Hector: pass by 30 without penalty.
[OOC] Felicia: 56
Riia rolled 1d100 and got 60 ( Total: 60 ) **
[OOC] Riia: Fail…
Sakha: "The adults threatened us with the story that the same would happen to us… whatever they're just fuddy duddies."
ORN: "What are fuddy duddies?"
Pak: "x_x"
Felicia: "Those temples… she would have had to come straight through… the uhh, 'demon's territory."
Felicia points it out on the map.
Pak: "Hm?"
Pak: "Maybe…"
Hector looks.
Riia blinks
Hector: "Huh."
Felicia traces a finger leading straight through Vieraland.
Riia nods…
Sakha: "She does know what they smell like."
Riia throws up "Maybe heard of her"
Primeira: "That would explain a lot."
Pak: "Oh?"
Pak looks over to Riia.
Pak: "You heard of her before?"
Riia nods
Riia shrugs
Pak: "Anything in detail, or…?"
ORN: "?"
Sakha: "… she remembers smells by eating things…"
Riia shakes head
Pak: "Hm."
Pak: "But that sounds like that's likely…"
Pak: "That she slipped through- oh, DUH."
Pak smacks his forehead.
Pak: "Of course!"
Pak: "She's blind. The dark tunnels wouldn't bother her in the least. ~_~;"
ORN: "Then she would remember Mer by eating Mer."
ORN: "Without being infected, perhaps she is capable of proper assimilation?"
Pak: "…Hm."
Pak: "We should test this."
Cassandra Lionheart: "No way. We'd probably have to fight her then, Pak."
ORN: "Make her consume Mer upon encounter?"
Pak: "Er…"
Pak: "Well, dunno about that. i was gonna suggest something less… dangerous? n.n;"
Felicia: "That would be best, but…"
Pak: "A-anyway."
Pak: "The fact of the matter is…"
ORN: "If she is capable of assimilating Mer, then there is little danger. This Group can provide shielding and violence."
Pak: "Even if Mer took control of those other Mithra, all the ones around us aren't infected. At least as much."
Pak: "Otherwise Mer would just take control of them, right?"
ORN: "Making the question of how and why rather interesting and potentially critical is it not?"
Eric Lionheart: "And if that was so, we'd be quite dead by now."
Pak murmurs.
Pak: "…Juan."
Pak: "You had to resist control too, so you have it in your blood as well, yes?"
Sakha: "Well he IS from here."
Pak: "And he was on the ocean as well."
Pak: "AND he was Maria's plaything."
Pak: "So that explains that."
Pak stands.
Pak: "But this still doesn't help us find Mer's other half…'
Pak: "…"
Pak: "…"
Pak suddenly browfurrows.
Pak: "Wait…"
Pak: "…Mer in the blood. Taking control of them…"
Pak paces, tail swishing.
Pak: "…>_>"
[OOC] Pak: …someone else say something
Felicia: "…So Prim, you said Mer's rejects just wash up?"
[OOC] Pak: THANK you
Primeira: "That is the way of things, yes."
ORN: "What decides if they are rejected or not?"
Cassandra Lionheart: "Then…everybody might have a small piece of Mer's influence in them?"
ORN: "Are those rejected capable of anything those not rejected cannot?"
Primeira: "Usually the pirates - Mer's minions."
ORN: "Or the opposite?"
Primeira: "It is more often things than people. Flotsam, jetsam, or the like."
Pak: "…"
Primeira: "We were supposed to be their slave colony, making metal in exchange for food."
Primeira: "Thanks to you, we may have a chance to change that."
Felicia ponders her own washing ashore… but that was way back in Refuge.
Primeira: "Ah…"
She sniffs.
Hector leans back and puts his hands up behind his head.
Primeira: "I don't need to be Sniffer to know when food is up!"
The matriarch stands, smiling. "Would you care to join me?"
ORN wonders what they mean by things washing shores
Riia nods
Pak: "Mrr…"
ORN: "Ah… Already ate."
Pak is worried.
Primeira leads the group to the mess hall. The food there at this time is somewhat spicier and tastier than before.
Pak mumbles.
Pak: "What if Mer doesn't have just two halves?"
Riia will be keeping an eye on Juan…
Pak: "x_x"
Cassandra_Lionheart follows, and sniffs the air.
Juan follows, but remains disguised - and keeping VERY close to Sakha.
Cassandra can smell the food as well.
Sakha seems to be walking on a cloud
Riia follows Juan and Sakha
Felicia pats Pak on the head. "Don't try to think about it too hard."
No Actually she just cast float on herself and Juan
[OOC] Riia: รณ.o
Hector could use teh f00dz.
Pak calms. Better food!
The food is almost as good as it was in Terceira's.
Pak chompchomp~
Riia munches a bit
Burritos, mainly.
Cassandra_Lionheart makes a couple of burritoes and smiles
Hector is eating and not glaring menacingly at Juan right now.
Pak mmm~
Pak: "…"
Pak looks around for Sniffer.
Felicia takes a seat, and eats up. Enjoy the food while it lasts~
Pak feels a wooden sword poking him in the leg.
Sniffer has seated herself next to Pak.
Pak kyah!
[OOC] Eric Lionheart: Bloody connection.
Pak: "Mmph. Mmnn mmnn mm?"
Riia grins at Sniffer and Pak
Pak tries to talk to her with his mouth full.
[OOC] Riia: Is that a sword at your side or are you just happy to see me?
[OOC] Hector: But that would mean that Sniffer is the…yeah.
[OOC] Hector: Not that I'm complaining, but I'd prefer her to be with another female in that case.
[OOC] Riia: Ah, Mae West, will your words ever get old?
ORN looks around figuring someone must be hiding some GOOD minerals somewhere…
The smith from last night seeks out ORN, with iron ore crystals.
Smith: "Here. What do you think of these?"
Sniffer frowns. "Think of me as a coward, does she? HMPH!"
Sniffer: "If that's what she thinks, I'll prove her wrong."
Pak puts a burrito in front of her, then sits, swallowing.
Pak: "Don't do anything foolish~"
Sniffer does not touch it yet. "While we were walking, I got a fix on where those dragons are nesting. I'm going to take them out."
ORN grabs one and tries it out
Hector: "…you're joking, right?"
Pak: ">_>"
ORN finds it is…iron ore. Certainly better than the regular rocks sampled so far today.
Felicia nearly chokes on her burrito, looking towards Sniffer.
Sniffer: "Nope. But you're coming along."
Pak: "O…kay?"
Sniffer: "I want to show her how brave I am, not how stupid."
Hector thinks for a minute.
Pak: "Good."
Pak chomps.
Pak: "…"
ORN: "… A small sparkle of taste in these grounds of blandest dirts. Thank you."
Now Sniffer partakes of the offered burrito.
Smith: "You're welcome."
ORN takes the rest and gives the guy 100gp
Hector: "Are the dragons an actual problem? If they're large and dangerous, I wouldn't wanna mess with them unless they're impedin' your ability t'live normally."
Riia: //=S //
The smith walks off, examining these wierd gold pieces, and wondering how they can be converted to gil.
Pak: "They're probably under Mer's control."
Pak: "We'll have to kill them eventually, so…"
Sniffer: "Exactly."
Pak grins and pats the top of her head.
Pak: "Hey, why are you so short, anyway?"
Sniffer pouts. "I'm still growing~!"
Pak: "Ah, okay."
Pak: "When I first met you I thought you might be a boy."
Sniffer's ears lie flat.
Sniffer: "A…boy?"
Pak mumbles. "The first other male mithra I find and he's so… opposite-of-me."
Pak: "Eh? Umm…"
Pak: "Well…"
Sniffer grabs Pak around the neck and puts her face in his. "How about some time later I prove I'm a girl - and I make you a man?"
Pak: "H-hey~!"
Sniffer goes wide-eyed and quickly releases Pak.
Hector: "Pak's already been made a man several times before."
Sniffer: "I-I mean…"
Ahiru: "He's already a man, and so am I… I think…"
Pak: "Y-yeah, I-i was gonna say…"
Pak: "…"
[OOC] ORN: and possibly a woman once or twice?
Sniffer: "…can't believe I just said that…"
Pak: "…"
[OOC] Felicia: To be a man you must have honor and a PEEEENIS
Pak bluuuuuush.
Sniffer BLUSHES brightly.
[OOC] Hector: A drill is the soul of a man.
Eric_Lionheart hmms.
Pak: "…U-um… ./‘`/``/."
Sniffer: "W-well…m-maybe later…"
Pak: "…D…don’t worry about it…"
Sniffer: "I m-mean, I've n-never…"
Pak: "O-oh, er, I mean…"
[OOC] Hector: "What makes a man? *elaborate soliloquoy*" "That, and a pair of testicles."
Sniffer gulps and nods.
Pak: "…"
Ahiru: "I've never been a woman yet… I wonder what that's like…"
[OOC] Eric Lionheart: Courage and guts also help.
Pak: "…You could always ask Hector for help. >_>"
Pak: "A-anyway."
Sniffer: "M-maybe later…s-someday…"
[OOC] Hector: And doing it with little girls. Frequently.
Ahiru: "Really?"
Felicia: "…"
Cassandra_Lionheart swallows hard on a piece of burrito and coughs
[OOC] Ahiru: I can go busty Viera
ORN: "Today is some day."
Sniffer: "So. We wait for the next earthquake, then go."
Pak pats the top of Sniffer's head. "Uhh…"
Pak: "R-right!"
Hector quirks an eyebrow up. "And nobody considers what I might think of this?"
Felicia: "A-Anyway. Dragons."
Pak: "I'm, I'm fine with that. T_T;"
Sniffer: "It won't be that far, but I'd like to make sure we aren't interrupted."
Ahiru: "You lked the Viera didn't you?"
Pak: "…"
Hector: "They WERE easy on the eyes."
Pak: "x_x Kyah…"
Riia is not hearing this conversation! >.<
Ahiru: "I can be a Viera lady."
Hector: "I…think I'll pass on that."
Sniffer: "You were…WITH…them?"
Pak: "I don't mind helping out. I just hope we can drag Sis along…"
Sniffer blinks.
Cassandra_Lionheart coughs some more and sighs
Pak: "…Er…"
[OOC] Riia: Clearly it's been too long since we saw Fakir. She's trying to seduce Hector now…
Sniffer: "Is…"
Pak: "It's… a long story."
Sniffer looks at Hector. Looks at Riia. Looks at Hector
Pak: "…"
Pak: "No, no…"
[OOC] Riia: Looks?
Sniffer whispers to Hector, "Is she wearing their perfume to try to seduce you?"
[OOC] Ahiru: Naw Ahiru has no romantic inclinations. Fakir is 'master'. Ahiru just a faithful pet.
[OOC] WC GM: Looks.
[OOC] Pak: But she liked having sex with womens so
Hector sighs. "No, she's not. And she's not trying to seduce me. And I'm not trying to seduce her."
Sniffer's whisper is not as quiet as she would like; the others easily overhear.
[OOC] Ahiru: No. Women seduced her. No man has.
Riia is NOT hearing this! >.<;;
Ahiru: "I just want to know what it's like to be a woman…"
Pak: "…"
[OOC] ORN: that just makes it sound worse :P
Pak hehehe.
Hector: "Too much assuming going on here."
Pak suddenly cackles.
[OOC] Ahiru: I'm a DUCK
Pak: "W-well, Ahiru~"
Felicia sweatdrops.
Pak: "You could always ask, oh…"
Pak: "Cassie? I believe she's one of the most experienced there"
ORN: "Likely what you observed with those viera guards and Cassie."
Pak: "Yeah, that's what I was gonna say~"
Ahiru: "Ask? Why ask when I can BE?"
Pak mrrs.
Pak: "…Well…"
Pak: "…"
Cassandra_Lionheart blushes, and chokes again on another piece of burrito "They only asked me why I could not do what they did!"
Pak nahs. Has other things to tend to first.
Pak: "I'd take care of it myself, but… um… sniffer has dibs on womanification."
Pak: "So…"
Sniffer blushes again.
ORN stares; this will be very interesting
Pak: "We'll worry about that later, and maybe… we'll see to getting you womanified if we can't find Fakir soon."
Sniffer: "Who's Fakir?"
Pak: "Friend of ours."
Ahiru: "… Fakir womanify?"
Felicia: ">\\\>"
Pak: "Uh… I don't know how to describe him to you, 'cause…"
Hector: "If we can get him to stay in one place long enough."
Pak: "…I'm not exactly familiar with his smell."
Pak: "Hey, Ahiru, what's Fakir smell like?"
Hector: "Fakir's a hume, like me. And he's a hell of a swordsman."
Ahiru: "He smells like soil and books and metal.
Sniffer: "Sounds like he's important to you."
ORN: "It should be relatively easy to perform 'womanification?' with Fakir in one of your female forms, Ahiru"
ORN sparkles and nods
Pak: "He's Ahiru's… something or other."
Pak: "Not sure what to call it."
Pak eats.
Ahiru: "He takes care of Ahiru."
[OOC] Eric Lionheart: I shall destroy this connection with the rage of athousand suns!
Pak: "Yes~ That's a good way to put it."
[OOC] Hector: Ten thousand deaths are not enough for it?
[OOC] WC GM: But then you couldn't play at all.
ORN: "This way you could take care of eachother."
Riia bites her lip, thinking about something….
Ahiru: "Ahiru will help him take care of the world."
[OOC] Riia: Why do I think that statement needs a muahahahaha?
Sniffer smiles. "He sounds nice. Like the kind of person you'd spend your entire life with. I hope you find him."
Sniffer: "I wish I had someone like that."
Pak: "…"
Pak sweatdrops. Guilt arrows.
[OOC] Ahiru: * Sniffer sniffs sadly
Cassandra Lionheart: "Sniffer, I am sure you will find someone."
Hector: "Actually, I have to wonder, where ARE all your males, anyway?"
ORN: "How long is an entire life anyways?"
Pak: "Yeah, Hector has a point? >.>"
Hector: "The only ones I've seen in my whole time here have been Pak and Juan."
Pak …dammit
Eric Lionheart: "Indeed."
Pak sweatdrops. Sniffer hadn't heard he was around.
Sniffer: "There are a few."
Pak: "…Are they, um, hidden? :x"
[OOC] Hector: Catboy Cage.
Sniffer: "Not so much."
Sniffer: "Just - in the back."
ORN: "??? in the back?"
Sniffer: "For example, they're in the kitchen right now."
Pak grabs a Burrito or two for the road. "I wanna see 'em!"
Sniffer: "Some of them, anyway."
Pak: "I haven't gotten to talk to any of my kind for a while."
Felicia is curious…
Pak: "Excluding a certain person."
Pak heads into the kitchen~
Cassandra_Lionheart sighs and gets up. "Got to make sure nothing bad happens."
ORN: "And you find yourself incapable of finding someone whose presence you enjoy enough to spend longer amounts of time with within this village?"
Juan: "If you'll excuse us - there might be problems for us there…"
Felicia follows along~
Juan stands up, offering a hand to Sakha, to lead her away.
A guard stands at the door to the kitchen.
Riia follows Juan and Sakha, at an unobtrusive distance
Pak: "…"
Guard: "Hey! No bothering the…"
Sakha smiles shyly and takes it.
Guard: "Oh. You're the ones from Refuge."
Pak: "._.; There wasn't a guard here last time."
Pak: "…Also, ones?"
Pak looks back to see Cassie having followed him.
Juan leads Sakha away, to a less public place.
Pak: "…Why are you following me? :x"
Felicia waves.
Pak then blinks at Felicia too.
Cassandra Lionheart: "I want to see. Is that wrong Pak?"
*she frowns*
Pak: "…Mou."
Felicia: "Hm? I'm curious to see what they're up to."
[OOC] Hector: Cassie wants to check out the MEAT MARKET.
Pak: "Fine… c_c"
Guard: "Our males are concentrated in the kitchen right now, making up rations. Primeira wanted me to make sure they weren't disturbed."
Felicia: "I grew up around mithra too, y'know…"
Pak: "I know!"
Guard: "But I guess it'd be alright if you went in."
ORN: "It should prove entertaining"
Pak: "You still haven't taught me to swim- ORN TOO"
Pak sighs x_x
Pak anyways, thanks the guard. n.n "Appreciate it!"
Felicia blinks. "We've been busy with things."
ORN: "This Unit is capable of swimming along the bottom. The surface part…er…"
Riia tails Juan and Sakha until they reach an observation room with a great view of the sea - at which point, Juan pointedly closes the door to said room.
[OOC] Pak: Just lay your ear flat and slide it under the door)
Sakha gasps enjoying the view, eyes sparkling.
Hector has finished eating, and is having a decaf coffee.
[OOC] Riia: Sakha'd step on it. Juan values his privacy - Sakha is vindictive.
Pak cutes at the guard a little~ before walking in.
[OOC] ORN: that's a hilarious thought though but how would it help her see? ;p
[OOC] ORN: though I guess viera can hear all the noises pretty well ;p
Riia will stay outside the door, keeping alert enough to make sure that nothing violent is going on…
Cassandra_Lionheart looks at Pak and smiles "Besides, it would be good to see other Mithra males."
Hector looks around to see if Prim's still there.
Inside is a busy kitchen. The staff is all male.
Hector can easily find Primeira.
Pak hmms.
Hector gets up and sits across from Prim, setting his coffee down.
Pak looks over them curiously~ "Hnn~"
None of the kitchen staff are nearly as manly as Juan. Most are not even as much as Pak.
Hector: "S'pose it's just down to the two of us, huh?"
Chef: "Can I help you?"
Felicia peeks in.
Pak isn't manly at ALL.
Primeira: "Everyone else left already?"
And many of the chefs are less than Pak.
[OOC] Pak: <Pak
Pak: "Ah…"
Hector: "Mm-hm."
*picks his coffee back up*
Pak: "Well, Um…"
[OOC] WC GM: Sub-Pak?
Pak: "I mostly just wanted to see what it was like back here."
Cassandra Lionheart: "Hi, we are here to see what your doing."
Pak , at least, has his DFC showing, since he's wearing a jacket that's open in front.
Primeira: "Well. You know I was in hearing range for that."
Eric_Lionheart nods.
Pak is pretty clearly a boy. Wonders if the chefs had heard about him? >_>
Chef: "Oh! The Refuge heroes! Well, take a look around."
Pak looks around curiously~
Cassandra Lionheart: "Thank you."
Hector: "Kinda figured you were."
*sip* "At this point, I'm not sure what I'm going to do with my love life."
Felicia: "We won't bother you too much~."
Pak has seen kitchens - but rarely ones as busy as this.
Hector: "Probably should throw in the towel. It's not worth it."
Pak sniffs. "Smells delicious~"
Ingredients are lined up, quickly being made into foods for preservation.
Primeira chuckles. "That's your own problem. I meant before that."
ORN: "This was rather unexpected…"
Pak: "…What were you expecting?"
Pak takes another bite of burrito, stowing the extra one in his pocket.
Hector: "Ah, the dragons."
*sip* "I guess that's next on our agenda."
Primeira: "Besides."
She pecks Hector on the forehead. "Someone like you? You'll find someone. Or maybe you have."
Primeira nods. "Now don't tell Sniffer."
Hector finishes his coffee and sets the cup down. "Hm?"
Primeira: "I…kinda messed up, eariler. She wants to be like me."
Primeira: "I want her to be like me too. But - she thinks I'm a brave warrior. I've come to understand it takes more than courage or strength to lead."
Cassandra Lionheart: "You guys are busy in here."
Hector: "Mm. That's true."
Pak buzzes around happily, trying to help out if he can~
ORN: "Hm. Why not tell her?"
[OOC] WC GM: ORN's in the kitchen, no?
[OOC] WC GM: Not with Primeira/Hector?
The chefs wave off Pak's offer of help. They seem to have their process down to a production line.
Felicia peeks over one of the chef's shoulders.
Pak pouts.
Felicia sees quite a bit of teamwork in the process.
[OOC] ORN: ah, thought they were in the kitchen. sorry. barely awake here.
Primeira: "Courage? Terci's got plenty of that - it's easy to be brave when you're safe."
Primeira: "Strength? My other sister, the musclehead."
[OOC] Pak: Oh COME ON >.<
Primeira: "But to be a good leader takes wisdom more than anything else. I'm hoping someday she'll take over for me."
[OOC] WC GM: Sorry. Was too easy to make. ^_^;;
[OOC] Pak: Gaaaaaah
[OOC] Hector: Clever.
Cassandra Lionheart: "So, guys, what do you do after all the cooking is done?
[OOC] WC GM: Even if I did spend all chapter setting it up.
Hector: "Mm."
Hector: "Wisdom, courage, and strength."
Chef: "Pack it up and store it."
Hector: "All good qualities to have individually, but together, someone is truly great."
Pak: "Hmm…"
Pak wishes he could help his bretheren in malemithratude
Primeira: "Indeed. And she's certainly got the courage…well, she's working on it. Same with the strength."
Pak: "Hmm…"
Pak doesn't know what to say really :x
The lead chef points to a bundle. "Here, you want to help? Take these to the pantry."
Pak: "S-sure!"
Pak does so immediately!
Cassandra_Lionheart watches the chef's and smiles
The "pantry" turns out to be a large, somewhat cool, storehouse cavern. Lots of supplies are gathered within.
Pak: "…Ohhh~"
Pak sniffs around. "This is interesting~"
Pak stores the stuff, exploring some
Not all food supplies, either. Pak's eye is soon drawn to the glittering hoard of gems.
Hector pours himself a little bit more coffee, and then raises his cup. "You're doing a fine job as a leader. Cheers?"
Primeira: "Cheers?"
She raises her cup, clinking off of Hector's.
Hector chuckles, then drinks.
Primeira copies Hector's motion.
Pak *_*
Pak: "T-treasure…"
Pak crouches down, looking over it.
Cassandra_Lionheart watches the chefs
Hector: "I can't say I understand completely how you feel, but I've got a pretty good idea."
The guard is at Pak's side in an instant. "Er-HEM."
Pak: "I-i was just looking! ;_;"
Hector: "A leader is the burden of a god, yet mere men are expected to shoulder it."
Pak: "It's so shiny… I haven't seen this much money in one place since the casino boat…"
Guard: "Primeira said this was to be untouched."
Guard: "Look all you want, though."
Pak: "Untouched?"
Pak: "…"
Primeira: "Indeed."
Pak: "W-why'd you tell me that~! ;_;"
Guard: "So that you wouldn't touch it."
Pak: "Now I really wanna touch it, though!"
Felicia: "…"
Pak stands, pouting!
The guard rolls her eyes and picks up Pak.
Pak: "H-hey! x_x;"
The guard begins to return to the kitchen.
Pak wrigglewriggle.
Felicia giggles.
Guard: "Don't think you can distract me by making out with me."
Pak: "I-i wasn't thinking that >_<;"
Pak hmph ;_;
[OOC] ORN: but she was
[OOC] Pak: obviously
Pak: "Y-you're the one who's thinking such things…'
[OOC] ORN: guard distract YOU!
Pak doesn't offer any resistance other than wriggling.
The guard returns to the kitchen, plopping Pak down in front of Cassandra and Felicia. "He's getting in a mood. Can you take care of him?"
[OOC] Eric Lionheart: Only in Soviet EC.
Pak: "Hey, hey, what's that mean! T_T;"
Pak: "What's a mood, huh? T_T;"
Felicia sweatdrops.
Pak fussfuss.
Guard: "The bedchamber with toys is down the hall and to the right, if you want to get fancy."
Cassandra_Lionheart looks at Pa, and giggles
ORN: "Hm."
Pak: "…"
Felicia: "W-What?"
[OOC] Hector: I'm sure it's already OCCUPADO.
ORN: "Ah. She must be on duty."
Pak: "o_o"
Guard: "You travel with them, so you're THEIR male, right?"
Pak: "…O…oh."
Guard: "I'm not about to infringe on someone else's male."
Pak: "Er, no, that's not how it works."
Felicia: "…"
Eric_Lionheart enters the kitchen. "What did I miss? I thought I seen someone injured and gone to help."
Guard: "Besides, none of that on duty."
Pak: "I'm nobody's, really."
Cassandra Lionheart: "Um…Pak, and I?"
Hector scratches his nose.
[OOC] Riia: Fyr would love to hear that.
Pak: "Well, there's someone, but, uhh…"
Pak: "…"
Pak: "It's not her. >_>"
The guard looks at Eric. "…hmm…naaah."
Pak points to Cassie.
Eric Lionheart: "…Nah what?"
Pak: "She's with the stone guy."
Eric_Lionheart is blissfully unaware of the discussion!
Guard: "Oh, I was just thinking you might not have the taboo we have against men being with men."
Cassandra Lionheart: "The gaurds think..I am not! ORN is my brother!"
Hector: "I have to say, Prim, that it's good to finally meet a mithra who'll talk to me as her equal. Most of 'em were just ignorin' me 'cause I'm a hume."
Eric Lionheart: "…"
Hector: "Well, equal, relatively speaking."
ORN: "…"
Pak: "…"
Primeira: "You're a leader. From Refuge, but still."
Pak: "Oh!"
Pak: "That."
Pak: "No, no, I'm not his either. n.n;"
Eric Lionheart: "…"
Felicia: "…"
Hector: "And Sakha just treats me like I'm crap."
Cassandra Lionheart: "Geeze…I am not looking for that right now! I got more important things to do!"
ORN: "This Unit is not really even the same race, however"
Guard: "Oh. Alright. So I don't have to warn you against the sin of a man taking a man in private around here."
Pak: "er… well, actually…"
Hector: "With Juan around, there's nothin' I can do."
ORN: "Private is bad? … hmmm…."
Pak: "We don't really have that AS MUCH from where we're from, but…"
Eric Lionheart: "…I think public is bad too, ORN."
Pak: "It, yeah. Got it."
Pak: "…'
Pak: "Is… is this a problem around here?"
Pak blinks.
[OOC] Hector: Are we going to have ship-to-ship combat from people who support EricxPak and people who support HectorxPak?
[OOC] Eric Lionheart: EricxPak would be lulzy, I think. >.>
[OOC] Pak: It's kinda random yup
ORN: "But if both private and public are bad, this leads to boredom. Or many arrests."
ORN: "!"
Hector leans back. "I can't compete with that."
ORN: "AH! Many arrests! The Guards. That's how it is."
Cassandra Lionheart: "Anyways…Nice kitchen here."
Primeira: "Have faith, hume. Things have a way of working out…eventually."
Pak: "…"
Eric Lionheart: "…"
Pak looks at ORN funny, wondering what the heck he's thinking.
Guard: "Actually, the problem is only in private."
Pak: "…"
Pak: "Wait."
ORN: "… ah."
Cassandra Lionheart: "ORN…Please."
ORN lets the idea dissapear ;.;
Pak: "So it's okay if two boys make out in public…?"
ORN: "Yes?"
Pak is… confused.
Sniffer sticks her head into the kitchen. "Yeah! 'Cause it's hot!"
Pak: "…Y-you can't even see it!"
Pak hrm.
Hector shrugs.
Eric_Lionheart can't help but think how odd this culture is.
The guard frowns at Sniffer. "You! You know you're not supposed to be in here now! Out!"
Pak sighs. "…"
Cassandra_Lionheart shakes her head also "I don't want to know about the females."
Pak: "This is… silly."
Guard: "…go on, all of you. Out. Shoo."
Pak shoos. ._.;
The guard ushers the group out of the kitchen.
Cassandra Lionheart: "I'm going."
Pak also, looks over at Sniffer.
ORN: "That would be preferable however."
Pak: "…"
ORN nods and heads out
Eric Lionheart: "What a odd culture this place has…"
Pak: "…You like boy-on-boy stuff? :x I didn't think you were the type."
Sniffer stands outside, giggling.
Sniffer: "Well…I don't get it myself, but that's what I heard the older ones say."
Pak: "Ah."
Pak: "Well…"
Sniffer: "What's 'hot' mean?"
Felicia: "It's… different. But cute~"
Sniffer: "I mean, they don't burn up or anything, do they?"
Pak sweatdrops. "Felicia too?"
Eric Lionheart: "…I would assume they don't."
Felicia: "What?"
Cassandra_Lionheart looks at Felicia and giggles
Pak: "…"
Pak: "Well, Elvaan males ARE rather pretty."
Pak: "So… I could see why you'd like that."
Eric Lionheart: "…"
Felicia: "I-I can't help it that it is! >\\\>"
Pak nods.
Pak: "…"
Pak: "I…"
Felicia: "I've never even seen Elvaan do it…"
Pak: "…dammit."
ORN nods and sparkles
Cassandra Lionheart: "I thought I had to worry abouut Hector and ORN getting into me…Now all of this worries me."
ORN: "Its the sparkling."
Pak: "Well, I had my anatomical materials before, but… Fyl has them all now."
ORN: "Very pretty."
Eric Lionheart: "…"
Pak: "Otherwise I would have showed them to ya, Felicia :x"
ORN patpats Cassie
ORN: "Worry not. Most males would gladly get into you"
Eric Lionheart: "This conversation is bizzare."
ORN nods and sparkles some more
Pak: "…"
Cassandra Lionheart: "Except you Eric..Mom…wait she all ready DID throw me out of the family."
Pak: "Actually…'
Pak: "… Nah."
Felicia: "…What"
Pak :x.
Eric Lionheart: "…I don't think I'd be getting 'into you' any time soon, Cassandra. Not that you aren't pretty or anything like that, just…"
Pak: "Well…"
Pak: "Uhh…"
Cassandra_Lionheart shakes her head and looks at Eric "ERIC!" and blushes
Pak: "…"
Eric_Lionheart blushes a bit too.
Pak: "Felicia. T.T I'll try to look for Elvaan anatomical materials when we get back to refuge!"
Cassandra_Lionheart shakes her head and laughs "Since when did you have a crush on me?"
Pak: "To repay you for my swimming lessons."
Eric Lionheart: "I don't have a crush on you! I just said you was pretty!"
[OOC] ORN: you *was*? nice touch
Cassandra_Lionheart blushes "Why….you!"
Eric Lionheart: "…"
Cassandra Lionheart: "WAS?"
Felicia blinks, blushing. "That's not neccessary. I'm not too big on my own kind anyway…"
Eric Lionheart: "…I didn't mean it like THAT!"
Pak: "Oh."
Pak: "…"
Cassandra_Lionheart stops and blinks
Pak: "…"
ORN: "Ah, perhaps he prefered when you were much younger?"
Pak: "now I'm curious. x_x"
Pak drags sniffer and Felicia aside.
ORN: "But that would be rather bizzare would it not?"
Pak drags them away from the incest~
Eric Lionheart: "…"
Cassandra Lionheart: "What do you mean was? I can't help it that I can't work on my looks with all the battling!"
ORN shakes head
Pak: "If you don't like Elvaan, which do you prefer? :x"
Sniffer is dragged, pouting.
ORN: "Cassie is quite attractive. That is likely not the issue."
Eric Lionheart: "I was merely stating that I made that statement in the past tense. Doesn't mean you aren't pretty now."
ORN: "However, perhaps he prefers those with less height."
Eric Lionheart: "…"
Pak: "Oh, and 'hot' is something like… 'causes arousal'."
Eric Lionheart: "ORN?"
ORN pictures eric nuzzling a dwarven girl's beard
Pak addresses Sniffer's question.
Cassandra_Lionheart looks at ORN "I am your sister! Wow."
ORN shrugs
Eric Lionheart: "And I'm her cousin!"
Cassandra_Lionheart looks at both ORN and Eric "And you"
Pak: "It makes their skin and blood feel warm, so… that's why they say it's hot to see two boys doing it. >_>"
Felicia b links, being dragged aside. "It's not important."
ORN: "You are not of the same series. Or race. There does not seem to be any issue at hand."
Eric Lionheart: "…"
Sniffer: "Oh."
She blinks. "Somehow I thought it was more."
Pak: "…Uh…"
Pak: "Well…"
Pak: "Honestly, there's probably more to it."
Cassandra Lionheart: "Well…You guys want me to look..cuter?"
Pak: "I've never seen two boys do it myself."
Eric Lionheart: "…"
ORN: "Is there some form of problem? Or are those considered relatives supposed to be hated and unenjoyed?"
Eric Lionheart: "Relatives usually do not do THAT sort of thing with eachother."
Pak blushes and pats Sniffer's head.
Pak: "Besides, didn't you get all excited randomly earlier anyway?"
Sniffer: "You haven't? Then…Juan's scent on you…"
She blushes. "Must be something else. I thought for a moment…naaaah."
Cassandra Lionheart: "You think I am related anymore, Eric?"
ORN: "Negative. Those… monsters with the ribbons would not be a good idea. In addition it hides too much of your form in combat."
Pak: "E-eeeh?"
Eric Lionheart: "We are still family by blood, though…"
ORN: "Cassie is quite capable as is."
Cassandra_Lionheart sighs "ORN. Darn it."
Pak: "Hey, I thought you said that was Seawater!"
Eric Lionheart: "Though, seeing the look on your mother's face would be hilarious, I'll admit."
Sniffer: "That is Juan's scent. He is a man of the sea."
Cassandra Lionheart: "Eric, ORN. Can we honestly talk?"
Pak: "Oh…"
Cassandra_Lionheart looks at Eric and smiles "Yeah, it would."
Pak nods. "That's right. 'cause of that pipe leak…"
ORN: "Of course. Why would you believe This Unit incapable of talking?"
Cassandra Lionheart: "ORN..Nevermind. Guys, can you keep something from the others?"
Pak: "…"
ORN nods
Pak: "…Er…"
ORN: "Very well"
Felicia: ">_>"
Cassandra Lionheart: "Eric, you need to stay quiet also."
Pak: "…Anyway, I'm curious >_O"
Eric Lionheart: "Alright…"
Pak turns to Felicia!
Pak: "So what kind DO you like?"
Cassandra Lionheart: "Both of you…I need to see the smither…My armor is getting tighter in some places, all right."
ORN: "… This should be remedied before you or the armor suffer damage."
Felicia: "I said it's not important…"
Eric Lionheart: "…That's what you wanted to say?"
Pak: "…"
Pak peeer.
Felicia: "<_<;;"
ORN: "In the meantime, you could redistribute your frontal mass to less occupied areas until such time as you can find armor capable of supporting a larger frame"
Pak: "…"
Cassandra_Lionheart nods "Been this way for the past couple of weeks." *looks at Eric* "Yes…The last thing I need is Hector looking at me like I am some piece of meat, all right?"
Pak: "…It's Mithra, isn't it~?"
Eric Lionheart: "I doubt he'd do that."
Hector sighs and facepalms.
Cassandra_Lionheart looks at ORN "No, I can't."
Pak: "Since you spent so much time with them~"
Cassandra Lionheart: "Can we just go to the smither right now."
ORN nods
Eric_Lionheart nods. "Umm…I have some…books to read."
The smith is indeed on duty, and even has a few new wares available.
ORN: "This Unit fails to see how this was critical to keep secret, but will do so neverthele…. … then how do you expect to give such information to the smith if you are unwilling to share it?"
Eric Lionheart: "Going to a smith and dealing with heavy armor I can't even lift seems to be a good thing for you two to do, though…"
[OOC] WC GM: 9500 XP each - thus level, thus better Availability
[OOC] Pak: Yay~
Cassandra Lionheart: "Because the smither has to fix the sizing, ORN."
[OOC] Pak: Almost time for Tier 3 limits.
Felicia: "N-not necessarily…"
Pak: "…Hm."
Eric Lionheart: "Actually, I should see if there is anything for me purchase, then read…"
[OOC] Felicia: More explosions
[OOC] Cassandra Lionheart: But I just bought new things 2 games ago! Oh..sword!
Pak: "…Aw, I was hoping I had guessed right. ._."
Pak pout~
Felicia blushes at the pouting Pak. "…Aww~"
Pak: "…Aha, knew it~"
Felicia: "!"
Pak: "n.n Don't worry, I won't tell anyone."
[OOC] ORN: 46 or 45 now?
Felicia: "N-No! That's not what… Dammit. <_<;"
Cassandra Lionheart: "Anyways, it will be all right. The smither is female, and will understand.
Pak: "Let's just say…"
Pak: "Hmm~"
Pak: "Well, you were gonna teach me to swim anyway, so~"
[OOC] Hector: 45.
[OOC] Hector: I still can't get a new whip until lv40. D:
Pak: "Getting to see me in a swimsuit panicking as I flail in water should be a sort of reward~"
Pak giggles and heads off. "I'm gonna go shopping for one now~"
Hector stands. "I believe I have a few things to take care of."
Hector: "So I'll see you later, Prim."
Primeira: "Later, Hector."
Hector heads off to the smithy.
Felicia sighs. "Ah… I should probably finish up my shopping too…"
Cassandra_Lionheart heads to the smither and see Hector "Damn it!"
Hector: "…what?"
[OOC] ORN: "he got to her first! now he'll have the better bra! UNFAIR!"
Cassandra_Lionheart blinks at Hector "umm.uhh…nothing, Hector!"
Hector: "I have no idea what you're on about."
Cassandra Lionheart: "Umm, what do you mean?"
Hector: "What do YOU mean?"
Hector: "I'm just here because it occured to me I should stock up a bit before our next battle."
Cassandra Lionheart: "Well, I am here for…um.."
Cassandra_Lionheart looks and HOPES ORN didn't follow.
Hector: "Look, if it's something you need some privacy to handle, I'll leave."
Cassandra Lionheart: "No…not really..I just need my armor to be…remade."
ORN as inconspicuously wall behind her as the other wall behind him
Hector: "I…see. Well, good luck with that."
Hector goes shopping.
The smith looks at the two from behind her counter. "Oh, hey, I've heard of this."
Smith: "Do you need a…what do they call those Refuge things…"
Cassandra Lionheart: "Hello…Heard of what?"
Smith: "…ahh…tux…e…do and gown?"
Hector turns to the smith and facepalms. "What's going ON here?"
Smith: "For the pairing ceremony you have in Refuge."
ORN nods from behind them at the smith
Smith: "We…wed-something."
Hector: "…pairing? What?! I'm not going to marry her."
[OOC] ORN: no idea but he's offering free stuff!
Cassandra_Lionheart looks at the smither and goes pale white "Nooo! I just need to get my armor let out a bit!" *looks at Hector, and grimmaces.*
Smith: "Oh! Wedding, that's it!"
Cassandra Lionheart: "No!"
Smith: "So you're not going to have a wedding with him?"
ORN nods at the smith some more from behind them
Cassandra Lionheart: "I like Hector as a friend…But we are not THAT friendly."
ORN still not sure what they're talking about but this way seems more entertaining
Smith: "Alright. Hand your armor over and let's see what needs doing."
Felicia walks up, having lost some of her fluster. "…Cassandra and Hector? That'll be the day."
Cassandra_Lionheart takes her armor off, and gives it to the smither
ORN looks to Felicia
Pak hmms.
[OOC] Pak: Do they even sell swimsuits here? >_O
ORN: "Is that what the smith was refering to?"
Cassandra_Lionheart then blushes and puts her arms over her chest
[OOC] ORN: well the bread armor would probably count but wrong game ;p
[OOC] Hector: …
Pak finds no swimsuits. It seems these mithra do not like the water, for some reason.
[OOC] Hector: Orn seriously reminds me of Muppy from Mana-Khemia.
Felicia looks through the available weaponry and whatnot…
[OOC] Riia: Nah, swimsuits are just a much more modern invention
Cassandra Lionheart: "It is getting snug in some places."
Pak pouts. He was worried about that.
Felicia: "Probably."
She calls back to ORN.
[OOC] Riia: I mean seriously, clothes that you wear INTO the water?
Pak will have to pick one up at Refuge…
Smith: "Hmm…I see. Aha!"
The smith points at Cassandra. "You've been putting on weight!"
Cassandra_Lionheart looks at the smither and is red "What?"
ORN nods from behind them again
Pak goes shopping for other things in the meantime. Suddenly, thinks about the crazy fashion elf and mithra. Wonders.
The smith taps Cassandra's arms where they are covering her chest. "Up here in particular."
Cassandra_Lionheart is really blushing now "I have had to adjust it alot lately."
Smith: "I've got you covered. Well…I'll GET you covered, better."
Cassandra Lionheart: "…Um.."
*stops and thinks*
Cassandra_Lionheart pulls the smither closer to her "Um…is there a doctor around here?"
Smith: "A doctor? For what?"
Felicia looks through things. The armor is good, but pretty plain. If she could get the proper materials she could spiff it up a bit; In time, of course.
Cassandra_Lionheart whispers into her ear "A check up."
[OOC] Hector: Alright, I should probably go. I have teh company over.
[OOC] WC GM: Yeah, let's end soon.
[OOC] Felicia: Im just buying stuff/pondering special materials at this point
Smith: "Well - our doctors aren't really specialized in what a hume's like. Primeira says we'll be breaking through to where you come from soon. It may be best to wait until you're back home for that."
[OOC] Riia: I've been sitting outside Juan and Sakha's door for a while.
Riia hears the muted conversation trail off.
Then the unmistakable sound of a kiss.
[OOC] Pak: I'm looking through stuff~
ORN: "Eric is a healer is he not?"
Pak ooohs, new hats
Cassandra Lionheart: "Okay. Thanks. When will the armor be done?"
Smith: "If you just need the bust let out, maybe an hour."
Smith: "If you need new materials, it'll take longer."
Cassandra_Lionheart nods "Just let the bust out, please."
Pak oohs! "A 'maiden's wrist'?"
Pak: "…"
Pak: "How exactly do they enchant these? >_O;"
Felicia: "Hmm. How long to add personalization to a few of these pieces?"
Felicia has stacked up most of a set of diamond armor…
Smith: "Depends on what you want."
Cassandra_Lionheart is blushing as she turns to look at the toehrs, including Hector
Felicia pouts. "Well I could probably help with a few, if the load is too cumbersome."
[OOC] Cassandra Lionheart: others…
Smith: "You smith too? I wouldn't mind the help, while you're here."
[OOC] Eric Lionheart: I'll BRB.
Smith: "Is it true that you use gold-plated wedding armor?"
Felicia blinks. "Ah, I haven't heard of someone doing that… but I don't suppose it's impossible."
The smith gets to work on Cassandra's armor as she speaks. //
ORN: "What is wedding armor? … This seems to be an interesting form of ceremony. What form of combat is involved?"
Smith: "Was hoping you could tell me."
[OOC] WC GM: Seems like we're at a good point for logend, unless anyone objects?
