EC Session 5.4

Evening, Boltember 3 Milfday. //
The party has joined up on the shore for shopping and - as it turned out - dinner, as the sun set behind them.
Terceira spent much of the time simply boggling at the huge variety of wares Random had crammed into his small boat.
Unfortunately, there is not much room for anything but Random and his wares.
Terceira: "…so ah guess ya may have to trah th' tunnels after all."
ORN sticks his arm a little deeper into the nearest rock crag and samples
ORN finds common silicates - not much different than home. Kind of boring to one of ORN's experienced pallete.
ORN: "… . filthy rations."
Pak: "Hey ORN. Can you sound out where the cave is? >.>"
Cassandra_Lionheart is listening to Terceira and nods as she get her new armor to fit onto her body "ORN, you got to eat though, you look a bit worse for wear."
Hector finishes his purchases, the nods in a friendly manner to Random. "Glad you showed up when you did. You're a lifesaver."
ORN: "… . This Unit has never tried to find holes in the food…"
Terceira: "No, tha tunnel north a' here ain't gonna help. It connects t' that island, which is gone now."
Terceira: "Ah can lead you t' another tunnel. One that leads t' mah sister."
Cassandra Lionheart: "Thank you Random. I needed some new gear."
Random: "It is my pleasure to be of service!"
Pak: "That works."
Pak: "…Still wonder how you floated out here, though…"
Ahiru: "Mysteeeeeeeeerious."
Random: "Oh! I just used the warp."
Felicia: "…The what?"
Eric Lionheart: "…?"
ORN: "?"
Random: "That's exactly what dear Regent said when I told her where I was going, as if she didn't know."
Hector does the "MAXIMUM D:" face
Cassandra Lionheart: "I though you followed our path of destruction."
Eric_Lionheart pulls out a notebook. "Please describe this 'warp'?"
ORN: "Explain. This may be of use later."
Felicia: "Indeed."
Random blinks. "…okay. If you go down south enough from Refuge, there's a curtain of energy. I'm sure you've heard of THAT."
Random: "A lot of people said that was the edge of the world. Tch."
Random: "I just sailed on through it. It links up to another curtain to the north of here."
Eric_Lionheart is writing down everything.
ORN: "… Interesting."
ORN: "Could these be reproduced, preferably at a distance?"
[OOC] Hector: lol in-game excuse for why world wraps around at the south and north
Felicia pulls out her map. "I suppose you could give me a rough estimate of its location on here?"
Even Terceira is paying close attention.
Cassandra Lionheart: "Oh. Nifty information for later."
*looks at Eric jotting the info down* "Good to know."
[OOC] WC GM: Why yes. But this is going to come into play more later. ;)
Random: "…you…really didn't know about this?"
Pak: "Nope…"
[OOC] Pak: Brbs.
Random: "…and…no one else did?"
Cassandra Lionheart: "Random..I think my mother never brought it up in class with me."
ORN: "Negative. Granted, the Creators never mentioned any limits on a planetoid, nor did Units of This Series bother asking…"
Random: "Well of course she wouldn't. We only recently found it. Until King was gone, we couldn't even sail that far."
Cassandra Lionheart: "Ah. There is a good reason then."
Terceira: "Wait…ya said a curtain o' energy. That all shimmerin', rainbow-lahk?"
Random: "Yes. Why, you know about it?"
Hector considers the tactical application of such a warp.
Sakha: "The King tried to suppress exploration, it's not surprising."
Hector rolled 1d100 and got 11 for a total of 11
Terceira: "Ah heard it was set up ah whahle ago, t' keep the ice caps away."
[OOC] Hector: Tactics check at 102.
Cassandra_Lionheart wonders and nods, taking all the info in.
Eric Lionheart: "Intresting knowledge at least."
[OOC] ORN: isn't 100 the max for a skill?
[OOC] Eric Lionheart: Max is 100. Having more then that is against the rules.
[OOC] Hector: Tactics goes over 100 'cause it's based off of my Command Skill, Level, and Agi.
[OOC] Felicia: I think it's his… expert thing. Because White Pirate is an expert.
[OOC] Hector: Read the White Pirate thing.
[OOC] Felicia: Except it doesnt use Tactics% EVER.
[OOC] Felicia: And over 100 is easy with tools and crap.
ORN: "If these were set up, the knowledge to create them should remain. The ability to instantly relocate mass, if variable in size and placable at will, would handle This Group's primary threat rather instantly."
[OOC] WC GM: It's a pass by lots anyway.
Hector thinks for a while.
Hector: "…ice caps? How'd you know there are ice caps?"
ORN: "Notably, redirecting its vector and altering its position…"
ORN points up
Terceira shrugs. "Ah heard there were, on th' other sahd o' them. Ne'er seen 'em mahself."
Hector quirks an eyebrow up.
Hector: "Uh…huh."
Terceira: "Ah was told it was set up by those what could still see 'em."
Sakha: "Ice…"
Terceira: "Somethin' about how if they ever cahm down, we'd have two kinds o' war on our hands."
Hector: "In any case, a warp between two isolated sections of the planet should allow for shipping and exchange of ideas between the top and bottom parts of the world."
ORN: "How large is this curtain, Random?"
Random: "It goes all the way around the world. Both sides, so far as I know."
Hector: "However, this means, also, that Refuge is not safe from those who sail the seas to harm others."
Cassandra Lionheart: "Which, when all of this mess is over, will help immensely to rebuild."
Hector: "Random, when you get back to Refuge, please tell the Regeant to work on naval defenses. I'm not saying you need a huge fleet, but if the pirates ever cross over, I want Refuge to be ready to repel them."
ORN: "… However, the horizon would suggest… …"
Sakha looks at Hector. "You sure think ahead."
Felicia rubs her chin. "I do wonder how they've been doing without me…"
Cassandra_Lionheart nods "But we will try to destroy the threat as quickly as possible."
ORN: "If this world is spherical, and holds strict limits around a certain perimiter… What is currently on the other side?"
Hector looks to Sakha and puts his fist under his chin dramatically. "Foresight's something I learned when I was a bandit, y'know."
Random: "We've been building a merchant fleet anyway, to help supply the Viera. We could arm them with a little time."
Sakha: "Bragging isn't appealing."
she turns away.
Cassandra Lionheart: "That is good enough then."
Terceira shrugs at ORN's question. "Two kinds ah war. That's all ah know."
Hector scratches the back of his head. "It's not bragging if you can do it. Geez."
Eric_Lionheart seems to be in deep thought.
ORN: "… This tells This Unit nothing useful, save for the possibility of effective weaponry to be found."
[OOC] Sakha: Yay for cute Hector/Sakha moment
Terceira: "Sorry. Mahbe if y' asked those who set it up, ya'd get more info. Ah have enough to worry about just 'round here."
Hector: "Anyway, Random. I think some defenses along the populated coastal areas might be a good idea, as well. If you're going to trade with the Viera, you should probably pick up some large carrots."
Hector: "Light them on fire and they make brutally effective missiles."
ORN: "If the world as This Group currently knows it is incomplete, several calculations may need rethinking. Where are those who set these barriers up?"
Random is writing this down. "…large flaming carrots. Got it."
Cassandra_Lionheart looks at Eric "Hey cousin, what are you thinking of?"
Pak: "Pyuu."
Pak wakes up.
Pak: "Wait…"
Terceira: "Ah dunno. Ah heard 'twas those what can still see th' other side."
Pak: "Magic that can help transport people?"
Eric Lionheart: "Just stuff."
Pak suddenly…
Terceira: "T' be honest, could be just a legend."
Pak AAH~!
ORN: "And these are?"
Pak suddenly stands.
Terceira shrugs.
Felicia: "…"
ORN: "An alternative, related question is whether these are passable or not. Depending on their altitude, it may be possible to simply burrow beneath them, given enough consumption time."
Pak looks around for a moment, then raises his arms! A rainbow colored light appears and shapes into a disk in front of him.
Eric Lionheart: "…"
Pak: "…Hey, hey!"
Terceira: "Ah know th' tunnel to th' north was s'pposed to link up with th' warp, near its bottom."
Pak: "Did that big wall look like this?"
[OOC] Pak: IMing Teleport.
[OOC] Pak: :p
Random: "Kind of, yeah."
ORN: "… How large can you make this, Pak?"
Pak: "Uh…"
Pak: "…Only about this big."
Cassandra Lionheart: "Eric, tell me. You look real worried."
ORN: "… oh."
Pak: "I've always been able to transport myself short distances."
ORN: "… still…."
Pak: "It's large enough for you to fit through. :3"
ORN: "Random."
Pak: "Lemme see where it goes!~"
Pak walks in and vanishes.
[OOC] Hector: Pak is now in the "Beyond" section of Bed, Bath, and Beyond.
Pak reappears several meters out to sea. Drops into the water with a splash!
ORN: "When you return to refuge, please attempt to convince mages not currently occupied in the underground war to attempt placing these in the moon's path."
Pak kyaaaaahs~!
Hector: "Little bro!"
Pak: "Heeeelp~! Bleeergh~! I can't swiiim! ;-;"
Random: "In the…we don't have nearly enough range for that."
ORN: "Teleporting large sections of its mass out of the way may help reduce the impact."
Hector: "Paddle this boat over to Pak now, dammit!"
Cassandra_Lionheart sighs, and jumps in to help Pak!
Felicia: "…"
Eric Lionheart: "Uh oh…"
Random does so.
ORN: "… The cloud ones may be capable of aiding you in this endeavor."
Felicia facepalms. "Mithra that can't swim…"
Hector grabs Pak by his arms and PULLS him mightily onboard.
Pak bleeegh x.x
Random is a bit far away and focussed on other things, so does not hear ORN's last comment.
Soon enough, Random paddles back to shore.
Cassandra_Lionheart is right next to the boat and mumbles "Great…" and then swims back to shore
Terceira: "…"
Pak bleeehs, shivering. x.x
Terceira: "…ah ain' NEVAH seen a mithra what can't swim."
Hector digs through Random's wares to find a towel of some sort.
Pak: "I-i can swim! But only if I'm drunk…"
Terceira: "…"
Eric_Lionheart blinks. "Maybe I should get drunk and see if that helps me swim."
Pak: "I don't think it works for non-mithras."
ORN: "Pak should therefore carry alcohol at all times with himself, in case swimming is required."
Random indeed has a towel as well. Seems well used, and he finds it faster than anything else on his boat.
[OOC] Pak: …
[OOC] Pak: Random's one hoopy frood eh
Cassandra_Lionheart goes over to Eric and BONKS him hard on the head "Don't get into drinking."
Pak is towel'd
Hector dries Pak off.
[OOC] WC GM: Something like that. Never know when one might have to hitchhike.
Felicia: "This problem will be remedied in due time."
Pak: "Uhh…"
Pak blehs.
Hector: "Well, that was your excitement for the day, huh, little bro?"
ORN: "There may be more ahead"
Pak pouts, his tail all bushy from moisture.
Cassandra Lionheart: "Eric, drinking is bad. Take it from me, okay?"
Eric_Lionheart eeps.
ORN: "Random, please attempt to communicate with the… furred cloud ones… on getting your mages in range for this. Attempting it would do little harm at the least."
Hector scratches Pak behind his ears.
Random blinks. "With the who now?"
ORN: "Meanwhile This Group should attempt to procure the means by which to create barriers of this size…"
ORN: "hm. Ah."
ORN looks over at Hector
ORN: "Do you not currently have the communication device?"
Cassandra_Lionheart looks to ORN and sighs
Hector: "Oh, uh…yeah."
Hector takes it out of his pocket.
Pak shakes himself off like a dog. "Bleeeh~"
Random takes it and examines it.
Sakha: "Stupid…"
[OOC] Pak: …accidentially opened a second client
ORN looks over at cassie
ORN: "?"
Pak pouts up at Sakha and flicks water at her.
ORN sparkles a bit from the water and nods at Pak
Sakha returns that by DOUSING Pak in a torrent of water.
Hector catches some water on his arm.
Terceira: "Oh mah. You really do have 'im on a chain, don'cha?"
Cassandra Lionheart: "Sorry ORN, it is just very unstable to do that. And the variables with it. Where are you going to put all the pieces of the moon when they teleport through? See what I mean?"
ORN: "If teleporting does not alter their velocity, then numerous directions could prove effective. Alternatively, numerous minute impacts can be spread out in a far less devastating fashion."
Pak w-wAAhhh~
Pak whiiines
Eric_Lionheart calls up some winds to help dry Pak off, considering he isn't doing much else at the moment. (IM Aero)
Pak: "N-now I'm soaked again! And so is the towel! ;-;"
Pak is blow-dried! And fuzzy!
Pak gacks as he's tumbled-about and air-dried
[OOC] ORN: puffypak?
Pak 's tail and ears are all foofy now
Hector wrings the towel out.
[OOC] WC GM: What body hair he has is standing on end.
Cassandra Lionheart: "Yes, but what if you don't take into account that some of the pieces that break off maybe bigger than what you thought? what do you do then?"
Felicia snickers.
[OOC] Pak: As is his normal hair.
Hector hands it back to Random. "Sorry about that. Sakha has a tendency to overreact."
ORN: "That is why testing is required. Do you believe this would not also have been a prime issue with the volcannon shot?"
Pak hmmphs, pouting.
Random shrugs, having moved himself and his boat a bit away from Pak on landing and thus having been out of range of the effect.
Felicia pats Pak's hair down.
Pak looks up at Felicia appreciatively.
Terceira assists Felicia.
Cassandra Lionheart: "I do, but the varibles in that case are quite different that waht your talking about."
Sakha: "…"
ORN: "Assume for a moment if all it succeded in doing was to shatter the moon into several massive pieces, less devastating to this world itself but spreading the destruction far wider for purposes of those living on it?"
ORN: "Depending on the methods by which this warp functions, it may be possible to simply eliminate or convert mass, reducing the damage outright, or even to redirect the moon, piece by piece or perhaps even entirely."
Terceira lingers while smoothing out Pak's tail fur. "Ya sure yer keepin' 'im, Sakha? Ah know many a girl who'd be all over 'im in a heartbeat."
Eric Lionheart: "Hmm. That sounds like it would be difficult to do either way."
Cassandra_Lionheart looks and nods at ORN "Okay, but you need to test it out. Something we don't have a liberty of right now."
ORN: "This Unit at the very least has confidence in its understanding of collisions."
Pak blushes. x.x
ORN: "… On the contrary. Pak, can you create another portal while maintaining sight?"
Pak: "H-hey, don't get her mad again…"
Terceira pecks Pak on the neck and giggles before stepping away.
Pak a-aahn~
Eric Lionheart: "Wouldn't even a single piece of the moon hitting the planet, if large enough, be devestating anyways?"
ORN nods
Sakha: "… he does have someone back home, I don't know how serious they are yet…"
ORN: "Less so than the current threat, which is the entire planetoid crashing."
Cassandra_Lionheart blinks and shifts her armor a bit "Yeah…" *shifts it some more*
Pak: "Eh? You mean Fil?"
[OOC] Pak: Fill, fil, phyll, forget how it's spelled
Terceira's ears perk. "Fil?"
Pak: "She mostly just wanted my babies. x.x;"
[OOC] ORN: … there's now three of them ya poor bastard?
[OOC] ORN: she cloned herself?
Felicia: "…"
Pak: "…What? >_>"
Eric_Lionheart hmms.
Pak: "It's true."
Eric Lionheart: "I think more research into how this warp thing is required."
Cassandra Lionheart: "Yeah it is.."
*grunts* "Eric, can you help me with this plate a bit?"
ORN: "If Pak can create another portal, This Unit can directly experience any velocity or vector changes involved. This will tell This Group how such portals may need to be placed to perform adequately."
Sakha: "…"
Terceira: "Ah know that name from…somewhere…"
Eric Lionheart: "I could try."
Pak: "It takes a lot of energy…"
ORN completely oblivious to the sextalk for once due to the mechanics of planetary cataclysms; which is a far greater source of happiness for all
Cassandra Lionheart: "Darn, get the straps on the right side, and loosen then up a bit, please…and tell me how many loops looser you did it by from where they are now, please?"
Pak: "I'll work on that portal stuff later."
Hector puts his hand on his forehead and lifts the front portion of his hair slightly upwards. "So many coincidences with people on different sides a'th'planet knowin' each other 'n stuff."
Pak pouts. Nobody was impressed by his ability to make portals except ORN…
Pak: "Anyway. How do you know Fil, Terceira?"
Cassandra_Lionheart grunts some more "Darn, It feels a bit restricting.."
Eric_Lionheart works with Cassandra'
[OOC] ORN: and orn's waiting for pak or eric to make a second one to test ^^:
Hector: "It's the magic of coincidence, little bro. We gotta start expectin' everything t'be, y'know…connected."
[OOC] Eric Lionheart: damn enter key.
Eric_Lionheart works with Cassandra's straps for a bit.
Terceira: "…dunno. Heard of her…somewhere. Someone's kid, ah think."
Pak: "hm."
Pak: "We'll ask around in the next town.
[OOC] Pak: Eric can't.
[OOC] Pak: IT's Time Magic, and Pak's the only source of it :p
[OOC] WC GM: But does ORN know that?
[OOC] Eric Lionheart: ORN thinks White Magic blows shit up. Somehow I don't think he knows the difference in types of magic very well…"
[OOC] ORN: ORN understands all the different things magic can DO, but the 'separation' in styles seems more an arbitrary "I don't wanna do that!" from its practicioners given everyone he's met and seen in action
Hector pats Pak on the head.
[OOC] ORN: "I don't know how" is understood well, not everyone knows the same things. but "oh no, I don't do 'time magic' just sounds like prejudice
Hector looks around for Trombe.
[OOC] Pak: It doesn't help that Pak is a crazy anomaly with no explanation or excuses for his abilities other than "oh, this sounds like a cool idea"
[OOC] Felicia: He is a ball of entropy
[OOC] ORN: and sakha does a bit of everything, and then there's elvaan plasma manipulation, and so on.
Cassandra Lionheart: "Great..Eric, you all most done there?"
[OOC] Felicia: that is fuzzy
Trombe is right there, having stayed a bit upshore from the mess.
Hector sighs, relieved
Eric Lionheart: "Almost."
Hector for some reason thought Trombe had wandered off or stayed far, far away.
Cassandra Lionheart: "Good…because i need to take a deep breathe here!"
Eric Lionheart: "Alright, give that a try."
ORN shrugs and watches the stripping/dressing then
Cassandra_Lionheart looks down and adjusts the left side to the same loops as the right, and finally is able to breathe!
Cassandra Lionheart: "Eric…Thanks."
Pak: "Huu."
Pak: "Okay!"
Pak nods.
Pak: "We need to get moving. Where's the next tunnel?"
ORN nods
Terceira: "Well, let's see…"
Terceira: "That was th' only tunnel goin' to th' warp. Ah suspect Fakir was maybe headed that way."
Pak: "Oh. Hmm."
Terceira: "But! Maybe mah sister Segunda could build y'all a boat big enough t' follow him, if that was your plan."
Trombe: "…"
Hector: "But with a boat, we'd have to deal with pirates."
ORN points
Terceira: "The tunnel's ah long trek fer us, with all th' usual transporters disabled."
ORN: "The Trombe Unit was capable of travelling over magma. Water should be little issue, especially at higher velocities."
Terceira: "But you've got one - shouldn't be much of an issue."
Pak: "Eh… n.n;"
Pak: "We'll see, I suppose…"
ORN: "This Group can "
deal with pirates" anyways, if you wish, however."
Cassandra Lionheart: "Yeah I got a bone to pick with them."
Hector: "Correct me if'n I'm wrong, Cassie, but you don't have any kinda personal vendetta with th'pirates, 'cept that they're pirates."
Cassandra Lionheart: "No..they stole my sowrd arts!"
[OOC] Cassandra Lionheart: sword
Pak: "…Oh! They did."
Felicia: "Is it not enough that they attack without provocation?"
Pak: ">_>;"
ORN: "Does Hector?"
Felicia: "…Eh."
ORN: "Was Hector's previous occupation not the looting of various areas?"
Pak: "Yup."
Pak: "But we weren't rich."
Hector: "Yeah, but I only stole from rich people, and that's 'cause we didn't have anything."
Hector: "We didn't even have any land for farmin'!"
ORN: "Logically, then, it would make more sense for one not used to piracy to have a 'bone to pick with them' than for one of their fellows to do so would it not?"
Terceira looks at ORN. "Ya mean, jus' using THAT thang t' cross the water? Unarmed?"
Pak: "Stealing from poor people is boring."
Pak nodnods.
ORN: "… Unarmed would be… inaccurate."
Hector: "When we get back home, I'm gonna tell everyone there that they should move up here. There's plenty a'farmland."
Pak: "Well… Actually…"
Pak: "I'm worried about going onto the water unprotected."
ORN: "However, heavy weaponry is always appreciated, and any sources you could indicate would generate great joy by all within This Group."
Terceira: "As well ya should."
Felicia growls at Hector. "That still doesnt excuse your actions… I swear I'll get around to handling that matter eventually."
Pak: "That Tsunami…"
Pak: "TROMBE couldn't stand up to that sort of force."
ORN: "Could be avoided by diving could it not?"
Cassandra Lionheart: "Felicia, am I in trouble with you also, then?"
Hector: "Yeah, yeah. You say that."
Pak: "Are you kidding?! Diving is even worse almost!"
Trombe: "This unit's internal storage is not air tight. Submerged transport not adivsable."
Pak flails. "There's all sorts of horrible monsters deep in the sea! ;-;"
Felicia scratches her head. "Though… by the time we finish this, you may have earned enough commendation to be pardoned. Maybe."
Felicia: "…"
ORN: "Alternatively… a powerful enough discharge of white magic could vaporise or disrupt it enough for a small-scaled craft such as the Trombe Unit to penetrate with minimal harm."
Felicia bops Pak. "Calm down."
Pak oww.
Sakha: "Who needs weapons, I've got magic."
Hector: "Well, if there's a tsunami comin' our way, Sakha could freeze it."
Hector: "Then Trombe could run up it and jump over our enemies and keep runnin'."
Sakha: "…"
[OOC] Pak: I'm starting to think the reason Pak can't swim is 'cause he refused to learn due to learning prior about undersea monsters…
[OOC] WC GM: Heard some bad things about certain tentacled ones?
[OOC] ORN: .. oh come on, they're not THAT bad, all they do is walk along the bottom and peep. You're a guy, why would you worry?
[OOC] Hector: Men are no longer immune to tentacle monsters.
[OOC] Pak: Tentacle monsters can rape guys too. T_T;
[OOC] Pak: Especially since all male mithra are semi-shota-ish
[OOC] WC GM: And then there are the urethra-raping fish. More damaging to men than to women.
[OOC] ORN: actually men never were; as long as its not a school or magical girl those dicks can shred through tanks.
[OOC] Pak: While I'm at it, WC, can I make a Monsters lore check to see what kind of marine life lives around here?
[OOC] WC GM: Not sure if this world has them, but RL does - it's a not-unheard of medical condition in South America.
[OOC] ORN: yeah but those are small fish living in more swampish conditions and limited to warm water.
[OOC] Hector: The trick, then, is not to swim in any body of water that doesn't have a concrete bottom.
Cassandra_Lionheart sighs as her armor fits properly now.
[OOC] Hector: And also avoid South America.
[OOC] ORN: we'd have more to worry about from a misaimed walrus here (which at their size and weight could definitely hurt)…
Eric_Lionheart hmms thoughtfully. "A blast of my wind magic may be enough to disrupt things…maybe."
ORN nods
[OOC] Hector: Because all that's there is giant statues of Jesus and llamas.
ORN: "Combining Sakha and Eric's destructive capacity should prove effective."
[OOC] WC GM: Pak: it's marine life - you don't have background to get a general overview of all monsters in an area you'd never heard of before, though you might get insights as to particular ones.
ORN: "This Unit may also be of aid in providing additional shielding or penetration force. Alternatively, well placed detonations could severely disrupt the wave also"
[OOC] Pak: K.
ORN brings up a few shells to the surface for demonstration
Cassandra_Lionheart looks at ORN "Stop that, please. The only offensive white spell is the Wind ones we know. And mom hates using it!"
Sakha: "I'm starting to wonder what I can do to make the rock grow some brains…"
ORN: "? ? ?"
ORN: "Are there not several of those?"
ORN: "Is it not destructive?"
Cassandra Lionheart: "Four. And a bit destructive. But only 4."
ORN: "Are there not other abilities held by that style which enhance those in combat directly?"
Terceira begins walking to the south. "C'mon. It'll take us 'til mid-day t' reach th' tunnel. We can sleep at one o' the farm houses on tha way."
ORN nods and starts walking behind her
Sakha casts Cura on ORN. "Feel that? That's white magic."
Pak follows Terceira.
[OOC] Pak: I'll roll it anyway, as I walk.
Pak rolled 1d100 and got 83 for a total of 83
Cassandra_Lionheart follows also
[OOC] Pak: …Fail by 1.
ORN: "Are you certain there are no other offensive spells in your school of thought?"
Pak: "There's Holy spells."
Random pushes his boat away. "…I'll head back. And hope I can slip by these tsunamis."
Pak waves to Random as he walks away.
ORN nods at Pak
Pak: "I almost learned it, but I went with Shadow instead."
Cassandra Lionheart: "Later Random."
Sakha: "They're spells of light that expel darkness. Evil creatures hate it."
ORN: "This Unit learned to intensify detonations with it."
ORN: "Light is energy."
Cassandra Lionheart: "Eric…Thanks for the help. I think i put the armor on too tight."
Eric Lionheart: "White Magic usually is more restorative in nature then destructive…though there is some spells that make use of wind.."
ORN: "And pure, searing light energy"
Eric Lionheart: "There is also the Holy spells Pak mentioned, though I opted not to learn those."
[OOC] WC GM: Awareness at -40, all.
ORN rolled 1d100 and got 48 ( Total: 48 ) **
Eric Lionheart rolled 1d100 and got 66 ( Total: 66 )
[OOC] ORN: made it by 12
Hector rolled 1d100 and got 8 for a total of 8
Cassandra Lionheart rolled 1d100 and got 26 for a total of 26
[OOC] Eric Lionheart: With that mod? Fail by 16.
[OOC] Hector: Critpass.
[OOC] Hector: Critpass…by 42!
Felicia rolled 1d100 and got 80 ( Total: 80 )
[OOC] Cassandra Lionheart: pass by 10
[OOC] Felicia: Lulz fail
Sakha rolled 1d100 and got 88 ( Total: 88 )
Ahiru rolled 1d100 and got 65 ( Total: 65 )
Pak rolled 1d100 and got 18 for a total of 18**
[OOC] Pak: Passu
Even though the sun has set, Terceira needs no torch to guide her. Those who made the roll notice, the outer moon is near full just now, casting more than adequate light to see by - then again, it usually is towards the end of a month.
Eric Lionheart: "But most of White Magic was intended to heal people and defend them. The magic I use to protect against elemental based magic is a good example of the protective aspects of White Magic…"
[OOC] Ahiru: Fail by 15 with penalty
Eric_Lionheart is too busy explaining White Magic to pay much attention.
Hector whistles.
Pak oohs. Moonlight. <3
Sakha is engaged in the magic discussion.
ORN: "And "
other" magics are incapable of this?"
Hector: "Mm. The falling moon's rubbin' 'gainst the top of the planet."
Ahiru doesn't think no torch is strange.
ORN: "Sakha ices large swaths of land on a regular basis. Her ability to destroy is admirable, and she has brought great joy to many for this."
[OOC] Hector: All I can think of about the moon being out is "Yes! I can use the Twin Satellite Cannon!"
ORN: "You yourselves explained that your 'white' magic utilises air and light to destroy your opponents, and that you merely opted not to learn how to do so"
Cassandra_Lionheart listens to ORN and shakes her head
[OOC] WC GM: At this point, it'd be more like the anti-satellite cannon. ;)
Eric Lionheart: "The light part, at least. I opted to learn more protective and curative spells."
ORN: "Enhancing those in combat is merely a different method; indirect destruction through the enhancement of those fighting around you."
Sakha: "My magic is completely geared to destroying opponents on the black side."
[OOC] Hector: It's only called the Satellite Cannon because it tramits a signal from the moon to a satellite to the X/DX.
ORN: "And then there is this…"
Once Hector points it out, others can see - yes, there is a bit of red at the bottom of the inner moon as it passes by in front of you.
Sakha: "White magic i geared to asisting others."
ORN holds up his left hand and forms an arc between his fingers
Sakha: "Even if the others destroy."
ORN: "It feels the same as her repair magic"
It feels slightly wierd seeing the inner moon to the south.
Pak: "Ah, but ORN…"
Eric Lionheart: "Sakha seems to have learned from multiple magic schools…which is not a easy feat."
ORN: "evil things, those who would wish Friendlies and Neutrals harm, are most devastated by it also."
Pak: "There's actually a kind of Magic neither Sakha nor Eric can do."
ORN: "Oh?"
Pak: "Yup."
Eric_Lionheart turns to face Pak. "Oh?"
Pak: "That's my teleport and gravitational magic."
Sakha: "Time Magic you mean?"
As the inner moon reaches its peak, it brightens up, reflecting more sunlight. It fades as it reaches the horizon.
Hector puts his arms up behind his head as he walks, and whistles the "Trombe!" tune he thought up.
Pak: "Yeah, that's the name…"
ORN: "… Why not simply learn how? It seems more and more to This Unit that your entire argument rests on fragile "
well we didn't learn how" claims…"
Pak: "Time Magic is tricky."
Eric Lionheart: "Do you realize how long it takes to learn the basics of magic?"
Felicia: "What basics?"
ORN looks and shrugs
Sakha: "I've studied it some, but I find it impractical. I can put it to a few uses…"
she summons her wand from nothing. "Like so. But really… It's best for the little things."
Cassandra Lionheart: "Yeah…Took me 7 years to finally get the basics down, ORN."
Pak: "In particular, it's one of the most obscure schools."
ORN: "Magic wielders seem relatively uncommon outside of This Group, so This Unit would assume weeks or perhaps months."
Felicia: "I never learned such things, and developed skills intuitively."
Eric Lionheart: "It only took me four."
Eric Lionheart: "What sort of magic do you make use of, Felicia?"
ORN: "She heals, empowers and enhances her weapons. She also has a degree of plasma manipulation it would seem."
Felicia shrugs. "Until recently it was merely a style I developed on my own… but according to some it is referred to as 'spellblade' magic."
Cassandra_Lionheart looks at Eric "Well you were a prodigy. Mom used to get angry with me in study."
Sakha: "…It took me two years to get to the point I'm at now…"
ORN: "Less sinister a method than some considering her weapons are non-sentient…"
[OOC] Hector: One of Sakha's innate skills is "Genius".
Hector: "And aren't you just one of the best 'n brightest, huh, Sakha."
Pak: "Cassie tried to teach me about magic, but… It didn't come out quite right."
ORN: "This Unit learned much about magic from Cassie."
Pak: "So I bet I've always had these talents."
Felicia: "It's merely a channeling of spiritual energy. I… don't really understand how to explain it in more technical terms."
Cassandra_Lionheart blushes "Guys, I am not much of a teacher. Pak, can attest to that."
Eric Lionheart: "I could try teaching."
Eric Lionheart: "And I do have the most extensive White Magic knowledge here."
ORN: "This Unit did learn one other trick… Though whether or not this is more akin to plasma manipulation or magic is as yet unsure to This Unit."
Pak looks to ORN. "Hm?"
ORN concentrates for a while, bursts off a minute outer layer and covers everyone with fine, only marginally assimilating dust
[OOC] ORN: Reis wind!
Eric Lionheart: "…?"
Eric_Lionheart coughs on the dust.
Hector sneezes.
Pak blinks.
Pak: "…"
Eric Lionheart: "What are you trying to do, choke us to death?"
Pak: "I have no clue what that is."
Cassandra Lionheart: "ORN! I just bought this armor! And my face!"
[OOC] WC GM: Cassie just purchased her face?
Hector: "Ow."
[OOC] ORN: ow.
[OOC] Aerdan: haha
[OOC] ORN: its regen 4 by the way ;p
Felicia shakes herself.
[OOC] Hector: Useful, at least, but we're not in combat.
[OOC] Cassandra Lionheart: Yeah..Got those pits out you know!
Pak hmms.
ORN: "It does seem somewhat distracting, but the time required to perform this makes this less than adequate for the elimination of hostiles…"
Cassandra_Lionheart looks for some water to wash the dust off her face
Pak looks at his arm.
Pak: "We'll have to try it again later."
Cassandra easily finds some - the group is by now back in farmland, with a small stream carrying water for irrigation.
ORN: "The ability to heal appears to come hand in hand with destructive power, as has been demonstrated."
Cassandra Lionheart: "Cool."
*bends down and begins to scrub her face of the dust*
The water grabs Cassandra's face and refuses to let go!
ORN: "!"
Pak: "!"
ORN fires at the water if that's in sight
Felicia: "…That can't be good."
The stream shatters under ORN's volley, and returns to being just water.
Cassandra Lionheart: "AHH! Get off of me!"
Terceira: "…oh yeah. Ya wouldn' be used t' that in Refuge. Tha' happens, e'ery once in a while."
Ahiru turns into King! "Water!"
Terceira: "Lahk ah said, Fakir didn't have t' tell US Mer'd gone crazy."
Ahiru growls.
The water is no longer animate.
Cassandra_Lionheart breathes deeply "What did I do to you?"
Hector whistles, amazed.
Terceira: "Don' take it personally. It happens."
Ahiru thinks. "Maybe I should stay in this form here?"
Cassandra Lionheart: "I'm not…Just wondering, that is all."
ORN makes sure cassie's no longer touching it and bolts the stream
Terceira: "Jus' beat on it some an' it'll give up. 'Specially if ya ain' near th' ocean."
Hector: "Orn, calm down, geez. We've all had a long day."
Pak: "It's be useful if we had electricity. n.n;"
Cassandra_Lionheart nods and slowly rejoins the group
ORN: "She said to beat on it some. Lightning is beating."
Hector: "Electricity, huh. I've got a few ideas 'bout that, but nothin' solid yet."
Terceira: "Ya ALREADY beat on it 'nough."
Terceira: "It let her go, didn' it?"
ORN: "Many things do so from far less power than is required to ensure they do not attempt again immediately afterwards."
Cassandra_Lionheart is stil a bit red in the face "Yeah, let it be guys. Lets just get to where we need to."
Pak: "…""
Pak: "It's a river."
[OOC] ORN: although granted concussive detonations in water tend to mean a good spray
Ahiru snaps her King fings an strikes some electricity.
Eric Lionheart: "…"
[OOC] ORN: ORN and King are gonna have to do the tesla-coil tetris song one of these days ^^:;;
[OOC] Hector: Also FUSION-HA.
[OOC] ORN: nah, that's if Trombe needs a better battering-ram-head ;p
Cassandra_Lionheart runs next to Eric and taps him on the shoulder
Pak: "…Anyway!"
Pak: "Can MER control fluids that aren't just water? Like, say, wine?"
Terceira: "Kinda. Not so well."
ORN: "Else it is likely the pirate assaults would end, due to severe intoxication."
Eric Lionheart: "Hmm?"
Terceira: "An' b'fore ya ask, yes, ah HAVE seen Mer control a body's water directly, once."
ORN: "Hm?"
ORN: "Elaborate"
Terceira: "Back when that city was still there. One a' the things that made Mer wanna get rid of it, ah guess."
ORN: "?"
Terceira: "Ah saw a mage trahin' some kind a' water-control enchantment. Somethin' t' put Mer down once an' fer all."
Terceira: "Ah was jus' a kid, so ah didn' get th' details. Didn' e'en fully unnerstan' what ah saw 'til mah sisters explained it years later."
Pak: "Oh… hmm…?"
ORN: "This would certainly best be tested without her knowledge. Any details will be helpful, however."
Terceira is walking a bit more slowly, and shivering.
Pak: "Er…"
Pak: "Why was the island we were going to wiped out?"
ORN: "… Most likely them."
Terceira: "Ah saw her at tha edge, challengin' Mer. An'…an'…"
Terceira stops, staring off into nothing.
ORN: "they are fond of informing all of our impending arrival to ensure further damage to the locale"
ORN stops and looks
ORN gets closer, stares and turns to see what she's staring at
Terceira: "Ah didn' e'en know what blood was. Ah jus' saw her leakin' red from all o'er her body."
Hector goes "D:!" again.
ORN can see her eyes are defocused.
ORN: "… ."
ORN stares at the rest of the group and makes a mental count
[OOC] Hector: Or is it "!D:" ?
Pak: "…kyah…?!"
ORN: "*blood, blood, blood, blood, not sure, blood, blood, blood, blood…*
Felicia: "…"
Terceira: "She couldn' e'en scream. Jus'…withered where she stood, 'til she was dessicated alive."
ORN looks at ahiru
Pak: "o_o;;;"
ORN: "Do ducks have blood?"
Pak: "I-i… so… Mer… pulled the red out of her…?"
Pak: "…T-that's nasty…"
Terceira: "Had nightmares fer a week straight."
Pak shivers.
Sakha blinks.
Cassandra_Lionheart turns aroun and tries to hide being sick
Pak: "I think I'M gonna have nightmares for a week straight."
Terceira: "Jus' thinkin' 'bout it now…"
Pak hugs Terceira.
Sakha thinks. "What an unusual application… pretty nasty…"
Pak: "I-it's okay. You don't need to tell us any more."
ORN picks up, hugs, but repeats his question
Pak can tell that Terceira barely feels it.
Ahiru: "…"
Pak blinks as ORN lifts Tercie and himself.
Terceira: "Ah'm sorry, but…mind if we stop here for t'night?"
She points at a nearby farm house.
ORN: "Hopefully not, as that would allow This Unit some aid in fighting Mer."
ORN puts them down and nods
Pak: "I'm fine with that."
Cassandra Lionheart: "Yes, let us stop, please."
Felicia nods.
Terceira walks - more like stumbles - to the house and is soon wrapped up in one of the beds.
ORN: "Risking instant dessication seems an unacceptable risk to those capable of it. At least This Unit and Ahiru, should ducks prove capable of not-bleeding, can fight without this risk."
Ahiru grins.
Cassandra_Lionheart sits on one of the bed, and takes off her armor, and looks at where the loops connect
Pak: "Ducks have blood."
Pak: "…However."
ORN: "… . oh."
Pak: "Golems don't. >:3"
Sakha: "I'm sure Eric can protect us from that."
Pak: "And that's one shape Ahiru can take."
ORN: "Trombe."
Hector yaaaaaaaaaawns.
Trombe: "This unit possesses no blood."
ORN: "Exactly."
Pak: "…"
Pak: "I meant her Earth form."
Cassandra Lionheart: "I wish I had the old armor…I could see how tight I did it.."
Pak: "Though that might be vulnerable to other attacks."
ORN: "All things are vulnerable to some method or another."
Trombe: "This unit was designed entirely of solid state materials. This unit has heard that its fellows were resistant to Mer's influence as a result."
Hector: "Useful, though I wouldn't 'sactly call ya a combatant."
ORN: "There is… a way."
Hector pats Trombe on the side. "Yer a loyal friend, though."
Trombe: "Hypothesis: Mer desired to destroy said fellows because of their resistance."
[OOC] Hector: Statement: he talks like HK-47.
ORN: "This Unit will ensure no further success in her endeavor is attained."
Eric Lionheart: "I can try to protect us from such a attack…but I'm not sure how it works yet."
ORN: "… assimilation, perhaps"
ORN: "If Mer controls water, its presence surrounding her targets may allow her to directly reach, and thus interact, with the target."
Eric_Lionheart starts writing down some notes.
ORN: "It is then a simple matter of removing or modifying the mass as she wishes"
Cassandra Lionheart: "Well, at any rate it seems another spirit out of control who doesn't want to talk it out."
Eric Lionheart: "So…in other words, protection against the Water element should be enough."
ORN: "In other words, Mer's dietary methods may be similar to This Unit's"
Hector rubs his temples. Jesus christ, how thick-skulled is Cassie, anyway?
ORN: "It seems to protect from direct elemental assault."
[OOC] Hector: That's not talking. That's THINKING. Don't react to that.
Pak: "How can she wash away an island, though?"
ORN: "It may do little save aid her in an attempt to 'heal' you from your watery affliction."
Eric Lionheart: "Hmm…"
[OOC] ORN: in other game terms; evil clerics shouldn't be casting protection from evil, 10ft radius on themselves if they don't want the penalties.
ORN: "As for the island… This may be stretching things a little, but perhaps she accelerated its erosion and dissolution while under her sphere of influence."
ORN: "Alternatively, these islands are weakly anchored or perhaps freely floating, and the force of impact allowed it to be dislodged and sunk."
Pak: "Hm."
ORN: "This Unit must admit that it is minimally knowledgable in this field of expertise, however."
Pak: "Wonder what they did to get washed away like that."
ORN: "It may have been This Group's impending arrival. Note whom was encountered with that tsunami."
Trombe: "Observation: force of impact was sufficient to shove above-sea-level mass of land off of below-sea-level anchor."
Pak: "Ooooh."
ORN: "Consider the ease with which they have obtained aid in causing cataclysm every time."
Pak looks up at trombe Admiringly. :3
Hector whistles.
ORN nods at Trombe
Hector: "That's some good observation ya got there."
ORN: "This Unit appreciates the additional input."
ORN: "Estimated force required to resist such an impact?"
Trombe: "Estimation exceeds group's present abilities."
Pak: "Any potential defenses against such an impact?"
Trombe: "Evasion or deflection advisable."
ORN: "Estimate allowing for combined penetrative assault and Trombe Unit's own resiliance. Prefer downwards-tropic evasion avoiding brunt of the current from beneath?"
Hector scratches the back of his head. "You know, we should probably go ask someone a bit more knowledgeable about what Mer can do."
ORN: "Note that this forces Units into hostile element."
Trombe: "Negative preference for stated reason."
ORN: "…"
ORN stands
ORN: "Estimate current jump capability and amplification potential from partial assimilation."
[OOC] Hector: WC's trying to cockblock you from thinking too far ahead?
Trombe: "Calculating…"
[OOC] ORN: or he's trying to get Trombe riding the collosal lance ^^;;;
[OOC] Hector: There is nothing Orn cannot pierce?
[OOC] ORN: common sense tends to deflect him pretty well ^^;
Trombe: "Strategy suggests possible defense. Alternative defense, depending on situation: this unit run up the water surface, then ride the wave until energy is dissapated."
ORN: "Combine both potential defenses and assume additional wave energy dissipation from Destroyer Lionheart's arts."
Trombe: "Defense possible. Significant irritation of Mer likely secondary result."
ORN: "Irritation leads to potential increased power but more significant increase in error margins. Consider it a bonus result"
Trombe: "Affirmative."
ORN sparkles
ORN turns to whoever's still concious
Eric_Lionheart is writing down everything.
ORN: "Tsunamis should prove a minimal inconvenience. This Group may continue unhindered."
Cassandra_Lionheart looks at ORN "I am going to HAVE to check you."
ORN: "?"
Hector ended up passing out someplace comfortable.
[OOC] Pak: I have to go to someplace at 4.
Cassandra Lionheart: "Your heart is in the right place, but ORN…don't call Eric a destroyer, please."
[OOC] WC GM: Wrapping up.
ORN: "It is not an insult. To claim any of This Group incapable of destruction would be extremely rude, given what this destruction has achieved for this world."
Cassandra_Lionheart looks at ORN and shakes her head //"You need a diagnostic..really. Good night ORN."
[OOC] WC GM: 8500 XP each for today.
ORN: "One well versed in these 'white' magics deserves the title, no less. He will understand its potential and the need for it some day."
ORN: "Sleep well."
