EC Session 5.6

Afternoon, Boltember 3 Minday.
The group has just come out of a tunnel into a rather dense forest.
So dense, Trombe has trouble moving around in it.
But the toads you encountered don't - and have begged for release from Mer.
WC GM: Battle order: Ahiru:26 ORN:24 Eric:22 Sakha:20 Cassandra:20 Hector:20 Pak:20 GiganToadI:20 GiganToadA:19 Riia:18 GiganToadG:18 Felicia:17 GiganToadD:15 GiganToadH:15 GiganToadB:14 GiganToadC:13 GiganToadE:12 GiganToadF:11 GiganToadJ:11
[OOC] WC GM: Ahiru!
[OOC] Hector: For a second, I thought it said "Battletoad".
[OOC] Hector: Alternately, GiganToad is a distant relative of Giganscudo.
[OOC] Eric Lionheart: I wish it did for the lulz.
[OOC] Pak: Just another trial x.x
Eric Lionheart: "Quite a few toads here…"
[OOC] Hector: Has any BP original ever had some kind of connection with frogs, like a fear or whatever?
[OOC] ORN: toad battle, not battle toad ;p
[OOC] ORN: don't think so
Cassandra Lionheart: "Yeah…I hope they take defeat easily."
[OOC] Hector: I keep thinking there is. Maybe it's mentioned deep in some supplemental materials about one of the more obscure games.
Ahiru (as King since she'd been prepared for battle for a while last time) sends out an eletrically charged attack!
[OOC] Ahiru: using Lightning Snap!
[OOC] WC GM: Not W: Lightning this time.
Ahiru rolled 1d100 and got 59 for a total of 59
[OOC] WC GM: hit
[OOC] WC GM: Target?
[OOC] Ahiru: I
Gigan Toad I bounces like rubber. There may be much water in it, but that does not seem to channel the lightning as hoped. It still leaves a mark, though.
Ahiru rolled 3d8+256 and got 7, 2, 1 for a total of 266
Ahiru rolled 1d100 and got 3 for a total of 3

[OOC] Aerdan: Pssst. Try ice.
[OOC] Ahiru: Don't got Ice
[OOC] Pak: Totally doesn't have ice.
ORN: "… The noises are somewhat annoying…"
ORN closes up his arm, brings both hands together and shapes a nice little ball of lightning before tossing it into the middle of the enemy formation and detonating it!
[OOC] Hector: I'm kind of like Kos-Mos in Namco X Capcom: nothing but physical attacks until levelled enough.
[OOC] Hector: Though, I'm not quite as beastly as she is. I'd say I'm probably on the same level as Stahn+Rutee.
ORN rolled 3d12+299 and got 6, 8, 7 for a total of 320
[OOC] Hector: Now I wish I could do MAJIN RENGOKUSATSU.

Four of the toads are silenced - but only for a moment, before they keep ribbeting! (I: Seal)
[OOC] WC GM: Eric!
Eric_Lionheart hmms thoughtfully.
Sakha hasn't noticed the frogs yet.
Pak: "Can you scan them?"
Eric Lionheart: "I'm sure I can find something useful about them. One moment."
Cassandra Lionheart: "Yes, please. Scan these little buggers.
Eric_Lionheart examines the frogs closely…though he's using magic with this examination. (Scan)
[OOC] WC GM: Which one specifically?
Pak: "They're not really weak to lightning."
[OOC] Eric Lionheart: A.
[OOC] Hector: Orn is our Kos-Mos.

[OOC] Sakha: I was talking Xenosaga
[OOC] Hector: Sakha is, uh…shit, what's her name. The woman who voices Lacus. Rie Kumiya or something.
[OOC] ORN: ;
[OOC] WC GM: Sakha!
Eric Lionheart: "Hopefully they possess weaknesses we can take advantage of, then…ah, I see now."
[OOC] ORN: that's kinda mean. no one should be related to lacus ^^;;;
Pak: "Weak to ice…"
[OOC] Hector: She's got a good voice for it.
Eric Lionheart: "Don't even bother trying to confuse or charm them, though."
Pak: "Sakha could wipe them out in one strike! Sis, go get them! >:3"
[OOC] Hector: Pak is, obviously, Romi Paku.)
Eric Lionheart: "Abilities that can seal them somehow also will be ineffective."
Sakha blinks coming out of her reverie on blasma and reproduction and gets er wand out grumbling about never aving enough free time to think.
Pak: "…"
[OOC] WC GM: Cassandra!
Cassandra_Lionheart screams
Pak sweatdrops. "Spacing again…"
Felicia: "…As expected."
[OOC] Hector: WAIT I KNOW.
[OOC] WC GM: Hector!
Hector: "Go forth, for justice!" *Command: Assault*
[OOC] ORN: plasma and reproduction? … somehow those two just seem wrong combined ^^;;;;;
[OOC] Sakha: I haven't had an opponent who deserved limiting on in way too long, if these things are down tat much from ORN's attack…
[OOC] Eric Lionheart: What does Assault do anyways?
[OOC] Felicia: +1 DS
[OOC] ORN: in other words, makes ORN very very happy.
[OOC] Hector: +1 Damage scale on physical attacks, physical skills, and limit breaks that are physically-based.
[OOC] WC GM: Gain 1 DS, and not the Nintendo kind.
[OOC] Eric Lionheart: But not magic, huh.

Hector's whip strikes deep into Toad B, breaking its rubbery armor!
[OOC] Hector: Lasts 6.
[OOC] Sakha: Sigh, I wish limit meters didn't reset to 0 no matter what ~_~
[OOC] Eric Lionheart: I still need to make my limits sometime. >.>
[OOC] WC GM: Pak!
[OOC] WC GM: And yes, you do. Outside of session.
[OOC] Felicia: Eh. Youll have to get hit first anyway :p
Pak hmms. "Okay… Lesse…"
Pak sighs and just Moogle Reels, as usual x.x

[OOC] Pak: Er, oops

Pak calls out Bunny Girl~!
Riia urks
[OOC] Hector: Oh, christ.
[OOC] Felicia: Cmoooon toshi
Hector: "…brace yourselves!"
Cassandra Lionheart: "Again?"
The Bunny Girl appears! Looks around…
Eric Lionheart: "…Not again."
Before the Bunny Girl can see Riia, Gigan Toad I's tongue lashses out and sticks to her!
Riia braces…
Pak: "…What."
Felicia: "…"
ORN glares at the bunny girl
Bunny Girl struggles against the tongue. It appears that the toad is trying to eat her in one bite.
[OOC] Cassandra Lionheart: brb
Pak: "H-hey! >_<"
Pak: "That's my ally!"
[OOC] Hector: When the bunnygirl turns upside-down, she's an ally? Or is she an enemy? I'm confused. Where's Garrod when you need him?
ORN just observes, waiting to confirm hostility
[OOC] WC GM: No one reacting?
Pak pounces to try and help >_<
Cassandra Lionheart: "Let her go you brute!"
[OOC] Riia: I figured we had to wait for initiative…
[OOC] Felicia: Didnt know we had an option :p
[OOC] WC GM: Eh, this scene is out of initiative
[OOC] Riia: Kay
Cassandra_Lionheart leaps at I chops chops at its tounge
[OOC] ORN: not sure if enemy or not given what happened last time, plus, you know, still in battle so not acting out of turn, so ORN's just waiting to see
Eric_Lionheart attempts to use his power over wind to pull the bunnygirl back. (IM Aera)
Riia is gonna…gonna shoot the toad.
Ahiru helps Pak and grabs for the Bunny girl
Cassandra Lionheart: "She is a friend…no matter what!:"
The summoned girl is soon freed! Toad I's tongue is severed!
[OOC] Riia: She did kill me, you know.
Hector figures not to get involved, since so many people are helping out.
Summoned girl looks around, kisses Ahiru/King, and vanishes, leaving the severed half of the tongue that was on her back to fall to the ground.
Sakha doesn't help cuz it's a bunny.
Cassandra_Lionheart looks at the Toads and blinks
[OOC] Ahiru: So now I have 255% ACC and Increased Crit Rating for How long?
Gigan Toad I blinks back. Shoots what's left of its tongue at Riia.
[OOC] Riia: Hokay, that's twice she's not murdered me. So far it's even between times summoned and killed Riia versus times summoned and not killed Riia
[OOC] WC GM: For the rest of the battle.
WC GM rolled 1d100 and got 81 ( Total: 81 )
[OOC] Riia: EVA 42…
[OOC] Pak: Riia, she only killed you once. >_>
Riia's initiative is halved!
[OOC] Riia: I'm pretty sure she killed me twice in that battle. Someone rez'd me.
[OOC] Ahiru: ah.. Now whether to revert and go Duck or to Play up with Mark…
[OOC] Pak: That doesn't count x.x
[OOC] Riia: And she said naw you don't.
[OOC] Riia: Furthermore, you summoned her twice that battle.
Gigan Toad A vomits up…clear water without any stench? Still hurts from the pressure.
Those who know of the spell quickly identify Watera…and was that Blue Magic the other toad used?

ORN: "Water stains suits?"
Pak: "Eric, we're gonna need some restoration next chance you get x.x"
[OOC] Felicia: Err. What happened to Riia's turn?
Cassandra Lionheart: "…" *looks down* "Sorry, I only heard the sound of the vomit, ORN."
[OOC] Riia: Init halved
[OOC] WC GM: Riia's init got cut by half
[OOC] Felicia: Ahh, halved right.
Eric Lionheart: "Understood…though I'd rather get some sort of protection up as well."
[OOC] WC GM: She goes at 9 now

WC GM rolled 6d100 and got 15, 20, 34, 81, 20, 60 for a total of 230
ORN glances in hector's direction, nods and keeps an eye out for further assaults
[OOC] Hector: SOS Shell and Power-Up.
[OOC] Eric Lionheart: If Cassie thinks water stains, I bet acid would stain alot more…so maybe it's a good thing the toads didn't manage to swallow anyone. >.>
[OOC] ORN: sentinel
[OOC] Hector: I'm still 260 off from my AoE limit. D:

[OOC] ORN: er, hector; would've been shielding you anyways remember?
[OOC] Eric Lionheart: HP: 117/417, MP: 560/563, SoS: 104
[OOC] Felicia: HP: 118/474, MP: 416/421, SoS: 118
[OOC] Felicia: Oh hey
Eric Lionheart: "I…can't take another blow like that…"
[OOC] Hector: Do you have Curaga, Eric?
Riia pulls out a small box and pushes a button. It hums. Spirit Up to the party.
[OOC] ORN: 207/377
[OOC] Eric Lionheart: Not yet. Figured Protectga would have been more useful considering we was up against a majority of physical attackers…
[OOC] Riia: 6 rounds

WC GM: Status Phase - Cassandra: AGI Up(3),POW Up(3)
WC GM: Status Phase - GiganToadB: ARM Break(5)

[OOC] Sakha: HP:219/376-MP:475/475-Limit:1352/376/564.0/752.0/940.0-SOS:94.0
Felicia is suddenly surrounded by a group of spirits, erecting a magical barrier around her!
[OOC] Felicia: SOS-Protect/Shell
[OOC] Hector: We don't have our 3/1 or 4/1. No point in calculating.
Hector 's shield glows yellow.
ORN pulses with a green glow for a moment, refocuses and fires off a wide arc of lightning across the enemy group!
Hector 's gauntlets glow red, too. Crazy, huh.
[OOC] Hector: btw, with this armor setup, I look like Gilgamesh with a whip.
ORN rolled 3d12+322 and got 3, 8, 3 for a total of 336
[OOC] ORN: lit, ARM as usual of course
[OOC] Hector: Gilgamesh or Arthur.
Toad D isn't angry - or moving - any more. Toad I seems ticked, though.
[OOC] WC GM: Sakha!
Sakha takes a deep breath and decides she doesn't want to mess with these croakers.
Sakha composes herself, the magical energy building around her. She taps her nose three times and the energy shoots to the sky, summoning dark clouds that blot out the sun. It however does not rain, but shower millions of tiny ice needles that slip through the cracks of armor and convey their mistress' pain to her enemies. ~Rain of Needles~
Sakha rolled 3d8+450,175% and got 2, 6, 1 for a total of 803.25
[OOC] ORN: overkill much? ^^
[OOC] Eric Lionheart: I should totally use Tame to get one of these toads. >.>
[OOC] ORN: you're a round too late for that eric, though I didn't expect the finisher to be THAT ^^:
[OOC] Felicia: Nah, it's a reaction ability.
[OOC] Eric Lionheart: In fact I think I can use it at ANYTIME, even when it's not my turn, as long as a enemy has hit 0 HP first. >.>
[OOC] ORN: ah
[OOC] Felicia: As long as one of them dies, he can use it.
[OOC] ORN: thought it was command
Eric Lionheart: "Hold on a minute."
[OOC] WC GM: Yep.
The toads make nice ice sculptures.
Hector kneels down and starts coughing violently.
They almost immediately begin to melt.
Eric Lionheart: "Think I can convince one of these toads to help us for a bit."
Hector: "Ech! Bloody dammit, that toad got me right good!"
[OOC] Eric Lionheart: Using Tame on one of them…shouldn't matter which one since it automatically works.
Ahiru: "No problem, Mer shouldn't bother with them now."
Pak: "We need some healin's."
Riia pats Hector on the shoulder and hyperpotions at 150%.
The toads are deaf to Eric's pleas. (I: Mystify)
Felicia: "Well they're liquified."
[OOC] Riia: 187 HP
[OOC] Hector: …wait, 150% Hyper Pot is…375?
ORN nods
Eric_Lionheart casts Cura on everyone.
Cassandra Lionheart: "Well, they hurt me alot. I hope we don't run into anymore."
[OOC] Riia: Whoops, wrong one on the list
[OOC] Riia: Yeah, 375
ORN: "Moderately damaging. Double their numbers could have proved troublesome."
[OOC] Pak: Roll for Cura
Eric Lionheart rolled 3d8+228,75% and got 3, 7, 7 for a total of 183.75
Cassandra_Lionheart looks to ORN and nods in agreement
[OOC] Cassandra Lionheart: 460/479
Hector stands up after downing Riia's potion. "Ah, thanks a lot!" He pats her on the shoulder.
[OOC] Riia: 215/215
Riia looks around for others who may still be in need of healing after the Cura
Felicia grumbles as she pulls herself up, her barrier dispersing.
WC GM rolled 10d100 and got 80, 83, 66, 50, 44, 87, 64, 65, 5, 25 ( Total: 569 )
[OOC] Eric Lionheart: As a note, nothing in the Job PDF says Tame can be blocked with I:Mystify.
[OOC] Felicia: HP: 255/474, MP: 416/421, SoS: 118
[OOC] Felicia: Yeah. It does.
[OOC] WC GM: And it was blocked - see above.
[OOC] Felicia: Tame allows the Mediator to ‘spare’ a single opponent reduced to 0 HP prior to the Mediator’s turn in the current Round, recruiting them as a temporary ally. Treat this as a Mystify-type effect;
[OOC] Eric Lionheart: OH, there's the line. Nice useless subjob now, huh.
[OOC] WC GM: Only for I: Mystify enemies.
[OOC] Felicia: Entrust, dude >_>
[OOC] WC GM: Tame isn't that useful, but it has occasional uses.
[OOC] Felicia: I mean… Yeah. Tactical skill number 1.
Pak is totally healed except for a tiiiiny scratch on his arm. (316/317 HP)
Hector tosses a Hyper Pot to Felicia. "Here ya go. Gotta make sure we're all in fighting shape."
Sakha is at 100%
6 Dream Powders, 3 Hi-Potions, and 1 Remedy are left when the toads finish melting.
Pak: "oooh~"
Pak grabs a Dream Powder. <3
Sakha actually seems to be smiling and is in an extremely good mood.
[OOC] WC GM: 8827 XP & 3383 Gil each from the fight
Hector thinks.
ORN grabs nothing
Riia snags one of the hi-potions
Felicia nods. She hands it to Riia though, since she seems better at applying these.
Hector: "Riia, you want all the potions?"
Sakha: "That was WEEKS worth of therapy."
Hector: "Figure you're probably better at that thany any of us are."
Pak: "IT's good to see you work off some tension, sis n.n"
Riia shrugs and nods
[OOC] Riia: Can't wait till I get the overflow one, though.
Cassandra Lionheart: "Sakha..You got to learn to let it out once in a while. You must be taxing your nervous system doing that."
Hector nods at Sakha. "Feeling better, I see. That's good."
Sakha: "I don't need advice from YOU."
[OOC] Hector: lol tsun relapse.
Sakha: "But whatever…" she turns and smiles at Hector.
Hector scratches the back of his head. "I think I'm gonna have to agree with Sakha on this one, Cassie. Don't be giving out advice if you're not sure that someone needs it."
[OOC] Riia: Straight back to dere!
[OOC] Sakha: She's just in that good of a mood.
Riia looks from Sakha to Cassie to Sakha to Cassie
[OOC] Hector: Thus far, Hector has avoided receiving the TSUNDERE PUNCH.
Cassandra Lionheart: "Okay. No problem."
Felicia: "…"
[OOC] Sakha: Sakha doesn't punch, she freezes
Cassandra Lionheart: "Your right…Here I am screaming my lungs out…I should talk."
[OOC] Hector: Tsundere Ice-Beam?
Felicia looks around.
[OOC] ORN: sorry, phone. gonna be getting familynapped in probably an hour and a half to 2 hours ^^:;;
[OOC] Riia: Pshaw, tell them to stick to LaTuque!
Pak: "Huu~"
Pak stretches~
Eric Lionheart: "Hmm."
Pak: "I feel pent up too, actually."
[OOC] ORN: 1.5 hours means they're in 3rivers right now and thus already on the way
Pak: "I think I'll totally decimate any frogs that draw near >:3"
Riia looks around the area…
Hector pats Pak on the head.
[OOC] WC GM: We can try to wrap up by then.
Hector: "Those damn things pissed me off right good, too."
[OOC] WC GM: That's our usual time limit anyway.
[OOC] ORN: eh no worries. I can stall'em slightly at worst
ORN stares at Sakha
ORN: "Is being struck truly theraputic? ? ?"
Felicia sweatdrops. "You all get worked up fairly easily…"
[OOC] WC GM: Tell us if they arrive and we're still playing, though - that'll be note to wrap up quickly.
[OOC] ORN: probly not 'fore 5 so no worries.
Sakha: "Struck? No, it's the STRIKING BACK that is."
ORN: "Hm. Then should you not also derive satisfaction from striking beforehand, thus avoiding the stress and general discomfort of being wounded?"
ORN: "It would likely ensure a happier existance. Nothing This Unit kills seems to improve your mood the rest of the time …"
Hector: "…somebody please stop Orn 'fore he goes into one of those…mental logical loop things."
ORN sinks a little
Cassandra_Lionheart looks at Orn and pats his shoulder
Hector rubs his temples. "You're talkin' so damn much, yer more like a parrot than a construct."
Sakha: "Oh that's all well and good, but you can't avoid etting hit all the time so hitting back makes up for it."
Cassandra Lionheart: "Hector be nice. He is only..what? A year old?"
ORN: "This Unit learned to talk to even larger groups, Hector. This Group is only moderately talkative by comparison."
Ahiru: "… I'm not much older…"
Pak: "ORN."
Pak: "You know when you turn into an even bigger robot?"
ORN: "In addition, This Group generally only holds two or three simultaneous conversations. That's nothing!"
Pak: "And start doing nothing but dealing massive amounts of destruction?"
ORN nods and thinks of comittees
ORN nods again at Pak
Cassandra Lionheart: "Well, ORN, you talk about death, destruction…We talk about other things."
Pak: "Doesn't that feel good? >_>;"
ORN: "Of Course. That was This Unit's point. The knowledge that every blow helps bring happiness to a neutral or friendly somewhere makes striking most satisfactory. Striking back carries the stigma of having taken damage in the first place."
ORN: "If Sakha were to derive pleasure from non-retaliatory strikes, given This Group's function, she would lead a blissful existance ^^.
Pak: "…Ahh, nevermind."
Pak: "You don't get it."
Cassandra_Lionheart looks at ORN "That smile scares me."
Pak: "It's not about just striking first."
ORN: "Cassie appears to enjoy the not-back part of striking"
Pak: "It's that getting hit causes stress."
Cassandra Lionheart: "ORN…what do you mean?"
Pak: "This stress builds up more and more until it explodes in a ball of total awesomeness."
ORN turns to Cassie
Sakha: "Awww Pak <3" She hugs him.
ORN: "You seem satisfied when striking"
Pak kyans~!
ORN turns back to Pak
Cassandra Lionheart: "Well yeah. It releases some of the stress."
ORN: "But if she was happy AND exploding into spheres of total awesomeness, it would be both healthier and happier"
Pak blushes. "W-well, Sakha in particular has very effective stress relief in terms of destruction. n.n;"
Hector: "I'll say!"
ORN: "It's certainly not that This Unit cannot comprehend relieving mental anguish through applied destructive arts."
Cassandra Lionheart: 'Not alot of it. But some…." *looks at everybody* "Well, next time, I ask for a bullseye on my armor."
Riia: ó.o
ORN: "But happiness can be found in performing violence for reasons other than retaliation. It hurts less."
ORN: "? ? ?"
Cassandra_Lionheart looks at ORN "There are other ways to make happiness."
ORN: "Indeed. However sexual practices, as interesting as they are, tend to leave those in neigboring villages most unfortunately unaware and unaided."
Eric_Lionheart just shakes his head and keeps out of the conversation.
Felicia: "…"
Cassandra Lionheart: "What do you mean by that ORN?"
Hector stretches his arms straight up. "That was a fine little distraction we had. C'mon, guys. We got some happiness t'spread elsewhere, y'know."
Riia laughs silently
Riia nods at Hector, though.
ORN tries to sound like hector for a moment
[OOC] Riia: We were looking for Primiera, right?
Pak: "Right. n.n"
ORN: "Kill bad things. Make village happy. Kill more bad things. make kingdom happy. Screw Viera patrol, only patrol made happy"
ORN nods wisely
Pak: "…>_>;"
Cassandra_Lionheart packs her sword into the starps on the back of the armor..and drops the sword after ORN metions that!
Pak: "…Well…"
Pak: "Nevermind. Let's keep moving."
ORN: "There is something relaxing about small-scale operations, however. This Unit can agree."
Cassandra Lionheart: "You know they asked to see what I looked like! We did nothing!"
ORN nods at Pak
ORN shakes head
ORN: "Plenty was done. Notably, the entire patrol."
Cassandra_Lionheart is a bright red in her face
Pak walks along with Sakha. Actually, he looks pretty tense, though seeing Sakha cheery really helps relieve the tension. n.n;
ORN sparkles and nods at cassie
Eric Lionheart: "…"
Sakha doesn't seem to be listening to ORN anymore and just settles into her own little happy world
Riia hikes up to Pak and pats him on the shoulder
Cassandra_Lionheart looks at Eric "Really..I did nothing. They wanted to see me…oh my..I thought.." *quicklyrunstothefrontawayfromeverybody*
[OOC] Riia: So much for Sakha's happy mood, btw.
[OOC] ORN: her mood's pretty much directly linked to her limit gauge. she'll be happy for little while ;p
[OOC] Sakha: Sakha is still pretending Riia doesn't exist
[OOC] Riia: Even with a Viera two feet away from her?
Felicia sighs, checking out the surroundings.
Hector leans against Trombe and watches everyone, waiting for them to take the hint.
[OOC] Riia: Snerk
[OOC] Sakha: It is what was agreed on when she joined thhe group essentially.
Cassandra_Lionheart jumps onto Trombe, and tries to hide.
ORN grabs whoever's nearest, picking them up and leaping onto Trombe
Riia hops up
Cassandra is snatched from midair!
Pak: "…Oh yeah."
Cassandra_Lionheart screams "ORN!!!" Please let me down!"
?: "Hello. Who have we here?"
Ahiru blinks, eh?
ORN's hands are around someone else.
Pak sweatdrops. "Sakha, we could- hm?"
Cassandra sees a decidedly mithran set of hands around her.
Felicia blinks.
Riia raises rifle, but does not point at unknown…
Sakha turns. "Hm?"
ORN looks
Cassandra_Lionheart looks at the hands "Excuse me??? Let go please?"
Pak: "There's some mithra there…"
A mithra in ragged but durable robes is hanging, upside down, by her knees from a tree, easily holding Cassandra with a quasi-hug.
Cassandra_Lionheart is blushing "Hi. And you arE?"
Hector looks up at the mithra. "Well, hey there. What's going on?"
ORN: "Hm."
The mithra smiles. "Welcome to the jungle. I haven't seen anyone with one of THOSE working in years."
?: "Call me Segunda. Everyone else does."
Riia enhats
[OOC] Riia: Or rather, makes sure her hood is on firmly to begin with
Cassandra Lionheart: "Thanks we found him. Anyways…Segunda, can you put me down gently, please?" *smiles*
Segunda: "Sure!" She lets Cassandra go, dropping her onto Trombe.
ORN: "Attempts to disable it would result in loss of said jungle. You are Segunda? This Group was told of your existance."
Cassandra_Lionheart tres to land gracefully "So you know of us coming then?"
Segunda: "Oh?" She yanks herself up, twirls, and crouches on a branch. "And no - I heard a battle and came running."
Segunda: "Looks like you took care of yourself, though."
ORN nods
Riia holsters rifle
Cassandra Lionheart: "Ahhh.
Sakha: "No problems at all~"
Sakha beams.
Pak: "It was just some frogs. We turned them into Frogcicles. n.n"
ORN nods
ORN: "They melted rather quickly afterwards however."
Pak smiles happily at Segunda. n.n
Eric_Lionheart hmms.
Segunda tilts her head. "Melted? Huh - Mer's getting fickle again. So where did you come from? Besides just that tunnel."
Cassandra Lionheart: "Refuge."
Hector: "There's a place on the other side of the mountains to the south, called Refuge. We're from there."
Pak: "A far away place inhabited by various races."
Pak: "Including humans and robots and elves and dwarves and moogles."
Pak: "And, uh, Mithra, too."
Hector chuckles. "Couldn't forget yer own race, little bro."
ORN nods
Segunda puts a finger to her lips. "Refuge…? Terceira mentioned sending spies to there and elsewhere. I sometimes wondered if she was making that up, but I knew there had to be something south of the montains."
ORN: "Many things are south of the mountains."
Felicia: "Yup. We exist."
Pak: "Yup!~"
Segunda: "I suppose I'd better get you to the work camp. C'mon, this way." She flips off and vanishes into the trees.
Hector: "A varied civilization a'…"
Hector: "…nevermind."
Cassandra_Lionheart looks "Work camp?"
Hector: "Work camp? If she's expectin' us to be hard labor, I'm gonna have to break a few skulls."
ORN nods at Hector
Felicia: "I assume we'll find out in a minute."
Cassandra Lionheart: "Yeah, I guess so."
Trombe struggles, but seems firmly wedged in the trees.
ORN: "… ."
ORN leaps off and fires at the trees
Pak follows- er.
ORN: "It would appear labor will have been performed on the way there."
ORN frees Trombe! But there are many many more trees in the area.
Pak: "…Where'd she go?"
Pak: "Anyway."
Pak: "Trombe, you stay here."
ORN gonna fire as often as he can generate the ammo, and lancer the rest
Trombe: "Affirmative."
Pak: "It'll be safer if you hide with your broken brothers."
ORN: "This Unit will escort the Trombe Unit"
ORN fells many trees! But there are still more.
Pak: "Then noone will try to dismantle you…"
Hector: "…two different things goin' on."
Eric Lionheart: "Hmm."
Trombe: "Estimate chances of stealth greatly improved without guardian unit."
Cassandra Lionheart: "Well can I help fell some trees?"
Pak: "ORN, cut that out. x.x"
ORN: "Trees can only grow so fast, however."
ORN: "Very well. However…"
Segunda's voice echoes from the forest, "Hey! If you're going to knock 'em down, could you help carry them in?"
Pak: "It'll take days or weeks to clear that many trees, and we probably won't take that long. Plus I don't want more frogs attacking because you disturbed their homes >_>;"
ORN grabs a smaller trunk and loads it on the catapult
ORN: "Use this to signal in case of any attacks. Any attempts at disabling the Trombe Unit must be dealt with using excessive force."
Hector: "Really. I think Trombe should duck into the cave."
Hector: "We've got legs. We can walk places."
Trombe: "Affirmative." Trombe walks backwards into the tunnel after ORN has equipped it.
ORN joins the others
Pak walks after Segunda's voice
Felicia follows along.
Eric_Lionheart follows the group.
Cassandra_Lionheart follows Pak
Segunda drops from above with an annoyed huff, and picks up one of the felled trees - with diameter equal to her skull - in each hand. "Slackers."
She then navigates the forest, manipulating the long cargo with obviously practiced ease.
Cassandra Lionheart: "What the!" *looks at her strenght."
ORN wonders what she's doing with the felled obstacle
Segunda just appears to be carrying them, for now.
ORN: "… Do you use these as weapons?"
Pak: "I think they probably use them to build stuff."
Pak: "Also, I told you you shouldn't knock down so many trees…"
Segunda: "If I have to. A big one can cave in a toad's head."
ORN: "… They were in the way, Pak."
Cassandra Lionheart: "Nice. Anyways, lead on, Segunda."
Segunda: "But yes, they're mostly for building. It's what the pirates demand."
Riia pounds fist into closed hand
ORN: "… You work for the pirates."
Segunda: "Well, you've talked to my little sister, so that's what you'd know them as. Or, ahem."
Pak: "Most people probably do, you know…"
ORN: "Willfully aiding them is an act of hostility"
Segunda tries to imitate Terceira's voice, doing a reasonable job. "Pah-riates."
Segunda: "Working for them is an act of survival."
Hector: "Yeah. Why do you sound so normal?"
Cassandra Lionheart: "Oy vey."
Segunda: "This sounds normal to you?"
ORN: "'survival' ?"
Hector: "Well, Terceira had that…accent with the strange way she said stuff."
Hector: "And you don't. Is it a regional thing?"
Segunda: "Yes. Survival. Of myself, my sisters, and everyone else who isn't one of Mer's personal slaves."
Pak: "Huu…"
Cassandra Lionheart: "So who did we beat up earlier? Are they under Mer's control. Because we fought a bunch of pirates."
Pak: "We tried communicating with them. It descended into nothing but "Yaaar" ing."
Segunda: "Terceira still speaks like we used to. Mer wanted us to alter our diction, make it like a certain foreign land's, once."
Sakha: "Are there different groups of Pirates?" she asks idly.
ORN nods at Sakha
Pak: "…A foreign land?"
ORN: "Those This Group has encountered, and those which still live."
Segunda: "You may think it's exceptionally crazy, even for one of Mer's requests. Some of us did. The rest of us are still around."
Pak: "…Mer's totally mad, huh?"
Pak: "Why is that? Because it's so big?"
Segunda shrugs, almost as if the trees were not on her shoulders. "Maybe that foreign land was your Refuge."
Pak: "Is she freaking out because of her potential imminent domain destruction?"
Pak hmms.
Felicia: "There's always that."
ORN: "The impact would guarantee her annihilation. Despite this she is proving hostile to This Group. That will not do."
Segunda: "And…well, Mer's fickle. Her emotions dictate her demands, and no one can ever predict them."
Sakha: "An emotional spirit…"
Segunda: "The rest of us try to placate Mer as best we can, and get along with what's left of our lives."
Hector whistles.
Segunda: "At least my sisters have kind of stable lives. If I can guarantee that, well, I'll take what I can get.'
Cassandra_Lionheart nods "Family is important." then looks at Eric "Unless your my mother."
ORN: "If she wishes for continued existance and has any reason left she will aid This Group. However, certain others have likely been ensuring continued degeneration…"
Eric_Lionheart nods.
Segunda: "I think Mer was once thinking of replacing us with those toads. Or maybe still is."
Felicia: "Probably not."
Riia shakes her head
Hector: "Hm. S'pose our battle's not gonna be easy. Then again, even if it's an elemental spirit, it's gonna go down if ya hit it enough times."
ORN nods at Hector
Hector: "But the problem is that we gotta find out what it is we gotta beat the stuffin' outta first."
ORN: "If it exists, it can be disrupted. If it does not, it need not be."
ORN: "Likely a 'whom' once more. Or an ocean or other bodies of water."
Pak: "They'll probably run away at some point."
Pak: "Just like Gaia >_<"
Pak sighs.
Pak: "Well, anyway…"
Pak: "So your village gathers wood, and the wood gets made into ships, is that it? :3"
ORN: "Gaia required replacement anyways."
Cassandra Lionheart: "Let us just see these guys. I want to see why they have the same fighting style I do."
ORN mumbles something to self and glares at the ground
ORN looks at cassie
Cassandra_Lionheart hears ORN "You best NOT be talking about me."
ORN: "Negative. However, about your comment. They use swords. Is it really so strange?"
Cassandra Lionheart: "They use the same fighting style as I do. Anybody can pick a sword up and swing it. But it takes a master to do the things I do with it."
Segunda: "Shipbuilding is the main thing we do, but not the only thing. Likewise, Terceira's folk mostly make food, and Primeira's doing metalcraft."
Hector: "There's a lotta different fighting styles. S'probably all the same origin if ya go far back enough, so 'course there's gonna be some similarities."
[OOC] Hector: METAL CRAFT! \m/
Pak: "OH!"
Pak: "Primeira's still around?"
Pak: "I thought that one girl said she was banished."
[OOC] Pak: WC you are not helping the "settlers of cat-tan" pun at all
[OOC] Pak: Or maybe it's less like a pun and more like subtext
Segunda pauses, ever so slightly. "…yeah, she's alive. We know that for a fact."
[OOC] ORN: damnit saiai I was TRYING not to say anything about that
Pak: "Oh, that's good…"
Felicia: "Hm…"
[OOC] Pak: Wheat. Wood. Iron. >_>;
[OOC] WC GM: Subtext with narrative implications. See if you can spot the rest! ;)
[OOC] ORN: pirates » thief, and everyone's a sheep
[OOC] ORN: where's the bricks?
[OOC] WC GM: No clay, no sheep separate from wheat. So it's not Settlers primary…
[OOC] Pak: …There's gonna be a volcano or something
[OOC] WC GM: A Volcannon?
[OOC] Eric Lionheart: osnapz
Segunda: "We send her letters, and she sends replies. I've asked her things the pirates wouldn't know, so I'm satisfied it's her writing them."
Pak: "Ahh, hmm."
Pak: "…We might need to go her way eventually… but anyway."
Hector scratches his chin. This is fascinating to him.
Cassandra_Lionheart listens in and blinks
Segunda: "If you find her, please let me know."
ORN nods
Hector: "Sure thing."
Cassandra Lionheart: "We weill. We promise."
Pak: "We've got something to ask her about. But anyway~"
Pak skips along.
Segunda: "Thanks. It's…been too long…"
Segunda shrugs again. "Can't afford to let myself get depressed. Back to work."
Segunda: "No matter how much I miss her."
Segunda shakes her head and runs forward.
ORN accelerates
Hector 's eyebrows go up. He thinks *Oh, geez. She's trying her best not to crack. Poor woman. Wonder what I could do to help.*
Before long, the party reaches the work camp. A village about as large as Terceira's, but all of the buildings are very obviously temporary.
Riia eyes Sakha, eyes Hector, and debates a sound thwack
Pak: "Hmm…"
Cassandra Lionheart: "Hmm. Nice little place."
[OOC] Hector: Is Riia psychic?
Pak waves to everyone. "Hello! n.n"
Drydocks dominate the area, with ships in various stages of completion.
No one returns Pak's wave.
[OOC] Hector: It's not like Hector's getting that "I'M GONNA GET ME SOME MITHRA BOOTY" look on his face.
ORN looks around… depressed? are there really so few targets in the area?
Felicia: "…Friendly bunch."
[OOC] Sakha: Riia is motherly, the next closest thing.
Cassandra Lionheart: "Yeah."
[OOC] Riia: Indeed. You cannot hide your inmost thoughts from the Riia.
[OOC] Hector: o_O
Segunda drops the trees in an open pit near a sawmill. The ground shakes a bit. THAT gets a bit of attention from some of the workers.
[OOC] Riia: Who knows what lurks in the hearts of men? The Shadow knows. And Riia.
Only then do they notice the new arrivals, and stop and stare in wonder.
[OOC] Hector: Who knows what lurks in the hearts of men? Cardiologists know.
[OOC] Pak: brb
[OOC] ORN: well sometimes they're still not quite sure and wanna open you up for it -_-
Hector procures a handkerchief from his jacket and wipes his face off, a little self-conscious.
Riia rechecks that hood.
[OOC] Riia: Also, ORN, they're just trying to keep you alive, don't take it personally!
Hector: "Hi."
Cassandra Lionheart: "Hello everbody."
[OOC] ORN: no no, sometimes they're just curious -_- do trust me on that one -_-
[OOC] Pak: Back
[OOC] WC GM: Disguise check, Riia.
Riia rolled 1d100 and got 75 ( Total: 75 )
[OOC] Felicia: :awesome:
[OOC] Riia: Also, defaulting.
[OOC] ORN: uh oh. ah well, goodbye village ^^
Riia tugs the hood tight and crosses fingers
[OOC] WC GM: Awareness check, everybody else.
Cassandra Lionheart rolled 1d100 and got 47 for a total of 47
[OOC] WC GM: At -20
ORN rolled 1d100 and got 78 ( Total: 78 )
[OOC] Cassandra Lionheart: 34 before mods
[OOC] Cassandra Lionheart: pass by..
[OOC] ORN: pass by 2 after -20
Eric Lionheart rolled 1d100 and got 68 ( Total: 68 )
[OOC] ORN: oh wait, was that a penalty or a bonus?
Hector rolled 1d100 and got 76 for a total of 76
[OOC] ORN: either way, 22 before mods
[OOC] Riia: I figured penalty…
[OOC] Eric Lionheart: Failed by 2 with mods.
[OOC] Hector: At -20…still a pass, I think.
[OOC] Hector: I needed to roll 80 or less, right?
Sakha rolled 1d100 and got 94 ( Total: 94 )
Ahiru rolled 1d100 and got 86 ( Total: 86 )
[OOC] Hector: 'cause I'm at 100.
Sakha is completely oblivious
[OOC] ORN: ditto ^^;
[OOC] Ahiru: pass by 6
[OOC] Ahiru: so… fail
Those who pass can see one of Riia's ears sticking out of her hood.
ORN gets between riia and locals immediately
The workers seem a bit confused - fortunately, none are nearly as close as the party.
ORN turns and points to her head
Riia eeps and tucks it back under!
Cassandra_Lionheart quickly goes behind Riia, and tucks the ear in the hat.
Cassandra Lionheart: ""Oops..Sorry Riia!"
[OOC] Hector: Racism D:
[OOC] Hector: They should love bunnygirls. Everyone should lvoe bunnygirls.
One of the workers walks up, reaching out to Felicia's ears.
[OOC] Riia: Even bunny girls who steal and raep your mans?
Felicia: "…"
[OOC] Hector: I'm in your civilization, raping your mans.
Felicia blinks.
ORN eyes the 'curious one'
Worker: "…no tail, and this…reminds me of something…"
Felicia: "Ex-…Excuse me?"
Cassandra_Lionheart watches the workers, hoping they don't try something quick on her.
Segunda: "They're from Refuge! Terce's tales were right."
[OOC] Pak: BRB even more ._.
ORN: "She is of Elvaan design, if that is what you are wondering."
The worker backs off. "…oh."
The worker bows a bit. "Excuse me. I…we…have never seen anyone like you before, strangers."
ORN recognises the situation from his great experience and sparkles
ORN: "You will best understand if you rub them."
Cassandra Lionheart: "ORN!"
ORN nods wisely
Hector: "No worries."
Felicia coughs, blushing slightly. "Right-No, no, that will not be neccesary."
The worker looks at Riia. "Are you their master? You look fearsome enough."
Riia coughs
Cassandra Lionheart: "No, she is a friend of ours."
Riia shakes her head
Segunda: "Alright, BACK TO WORK WITH YOU! The ships won't build themselves, and our lords will have another head if we don't launch one of these by sunset."
Worker: "Excuse me." The worker runs back to her duties.
ORN: "Mastery of single individuals would be petty and small-scaled. Why would anyone bother?"
Cassandra_Lionheart nods
[OOC] Hector: How high is Segunda's Str if she can lift a huge trunk?
[OOC] WC GM: High Enough.
[OOC] ORN: probly mid-high 20's
[OOC] Hector: Did they ever give a maximum lifting weight per Str score?
[OOC] Felicia: Nah.
[OOC] Felicia: Felicia could prolly do the same.
Sakha: "Why do people think SHE's in charge?"
[OOC] WC GM: Lore: Magic or Enchantment check if anyone's seriously looking at Segunda and wondering at her strength.
Segunda walks back to the group. "Because I am."
[OOC] Hector: I'm going to have all my lores maxed in ten levels. HOW DO I GETTED MORE?
[OOC] Eric Lionheart: Hmm.
Felicia rolled 1d100 and got 20 ( Total: 20 )
Eric Lionheart rolled 1d100 and got 15 ( Total: 15 )
[OOC] ORN: got neither ^^:
[OOC] Felicia: Yup. Das a pass.
[OOC] Eric Lionheart: Pass by 45.
Riia shakes her head quickly and taps her chest.
Sakha rolled 1d100 and got 26 ( Total: 26 )
Hector: "I think she was talkin' 'bout Riia."
[OOC] Felicia: pass by 80
Riia winks at Sakha and blows a kiss at her
[OOC] Sakha: passity
Cassandra_Lionheart giggles.
Sakha starts losing a bit of her good mood and hmphs.
[OOC] Riia: Not my thing, but would Biology apply?
Eric, Felicia, and Sakha easily identify the aura of enchantment from a belt under Segunda's robes. Whatever natural strength she has, it is apparently amplified.
Eric_Lionheart hmms thoughtfully.
Cassandra Lionheart: "What is it Eric?"
[OOC] WC GM: Biology - autopass with bonuses - just tells you that she's naturally strong, and has lead a life that has developed her muscles. Say, by carrying trees and other heavy things for years.
Sakha sidles up. "Where can I get one of those?"
Hector quirks an eyebrow up at Sakha's comment.
Eric Lionheart: "Her strength is being amplified with some sort of enchantment…that said, she is likely naturally fairly strong to begin with."
ORN: "Enchantment?"
Sakha: "It'd certainly be nie to have, Segunda~"
Cassandra Lionheart: "Wow. Nice. What ever it is. I want it."
Hector doesn't think he could lift entire logs with his feeble muscles.
Pak: "Hmm~"
Pak walks over to see.
Hector looks around for anyplace that looks like it'd be serving food.
Cassandra Lionheart: "Can I help bringing some of the logs, Segunda?"
Segunda: "Ah…you mean this thing?" She lifts her robe enough to give a clear view of one thigh and the belt on it.
Sakha nods.
Cassandra Lionheart: "Yeah…"
Segunda: "Sorry, but it was a one-time gift - and I'd probably be dead for rejecting it if they found me without it."
ORN: "???"
Cassandra Lionheart: "Aww, no problem then. But I want to help still."
Pak: "It's pretty nice, still."
Sakha: "Who gave it?"
Pak thinks, wondering if he can summon anything to help…
Pak: "Lemme try to call something to help with work. n.n"
Pak reels~
Segunda lets her robe fall again, then walks off towards one of the buildings. "Who do you THINK? C'mon, your guy looks hungry, I'll get you some food."
Pak rolled 1d10 and got 7 for a total of 7
[OOC] Pak: GF
Pak rolled 1d10 and got 9 for a total of 9
Pak rolled 1d100 and got 13 for a total of 13
Pak rolled 1d100 and got 37 for a total of 37
Cassandra Lionheart: "Okay. Food first, then I get to help, okay?"
ORN looks around for some tasties
Pak rolled 1d10 and got 7 for a total of 7
Sakha: "That GUY? Juan I think?"
Hector: "I'm no one's guy. Not yet, anyway."
[OOC] Pak: Uh… GF.
Pak rolled 1d10 and got 2 for a total of 2
Segundda: "No, your guy." She points to Hector.
Sakha: "I was guessing who gave it, silly."
Pak: "Oh, I'm a guy too- aah~ X_X"
Pak suddenly catches on fire~! (Ifrit)
Felicia: "…"
Pak: "…Uh…"
Hector: "!!!"
Pak: "Someone put me out, please."
Felicia sighs.
Segunda: "Oh. No, I-HEY!"
Hector tackles Pak and tries to smother the fire with his cape.
Pak ack~!
Sakha douses Pak and Hector
Riia faceplants…
Felicia bonks Pak on the head, water flowing from her sword.
Cassandra Lionheart: "Heh. Hector? Hungry." *laughs*
[OOC] Riia: Wet tshirt contest
Segunda picks up Pak and Hector, and throws them both into the ocean.
Pak waaaaaaaaaaahs
Felicia: "…"
Segunda: "CAREFUL with fire around here!"
Hector lands unceremoniously in the water. Good thing he had swimming lessons from his parents at the river.
Pak flails!
Pak clings to Hector. "D:"
Segunda tossed them at least 200 meters.
Eric Lionheart: "…"
Pak: "Heelp, I can't swiiim ;-;"
Hector swims to shore, Pak in tow.
Pak: "…Oh, wait."
Cassandra_Lionheart laughs out loud
Felicia shakes her head. "Still can't swim…"
Pak teleports them back to shore.
Pak: "…Sorry about that x.x"
Hector: "Did you put on weight or somethin'? I thought all those girls you did it with woulda helped you lose a few pounds, geez."
Pak: "The water makes our clothes heavier."
Hector shakes off.
ORN looks around; surely construction materials = real food somewhere; their work can't ALL be that shoddy and wooden!
Pak shakes off in a dog-like manner.
Pak: "Arf."
Hector chuckles.
Sakha: "That wasn't necessary…"
[OOC] WC GM: ORN: Survival check.
Felicia whips up a little wind with her sword to dry Pak off.
ORN rolled 1d100 and got 8 ( Total: 8 )
[OOC] ORN: pass by 42. also, crit.
Hector: "Jus' be a bit more careful with yer magic, alright?"
As ORN is looking around for food, the construct's eyes spy the sandy beach.
Hector: "Y'coulda burned down a perfectly good restaurant."
Pak heads over towards Segunda.
ORN identifies the many small-grained silicates that make up the beach.
ORN: "… Silicates."
Pak: "Sorry… I accidentially summoned Pyr instead of Gaia."
ORN sparkles brightly, kneels and jumps! (target: beach!)
Pak: "I wanted to help lift some trees…"
[OOC] WC GM: hit
Pak: "Anyway, as I was saying. Segunda, I'm a boy too!"
[OOC] WC GM: Auto-crit, even
Hector shakes the rest of the water off him as he gets back to the camp.
Segunda: "You are? Hmm, mind if I confirm that?"
Hector: "Right. Before Pak burst into flame, I was tryin' to say that I'm not Sakha's, or anyone's for that matter."
ORN crashes into it, kneels into the crater, slams an arm in and starts focusing on assimilating and glassing the rest
Hector: "Society works differently in Refuge, y'know."
There is far more beach than ORN can assimilate in one go. Still, ORN's nutritive needs are more than satisfied.
Pak: "Er…"
Pak hesitates.
Felicia: "…He's a boy."
Pak: "Y-yes. T_T;"
ORN modifies a good 20kg or so to a single chunk, in case there's more of that useless forest ground later on, and goes looking for the party
Hector: "He's a man."
Cassandra Lionheart: "I can a test to it."
Hector: "Yes, a man. He's growin' up day by day, y'know."
Pak: "…Er, hector."
Pak: "I'm actually not gonna get much taller."
Pak is equivilantly 16.
Hector sighs. "I'm not talkin' about literally growin' up."
Pak: "Oh, okay."
Pak: "Anyway, uhh…"
ORN: "Hm?"
Hector: "You're maturin', y'know. That's what bein' a man is all about."
Cassandra Lionheart: "Actually speaking of which…a birthday cake sounds good now."
Pak: "Oh, right, food!"
Pak heads over towards the hut.
ORN leaps over to pak
ORN: "There is a buffet down that way"
ORN nods and shows the large glassed chunk
Segunda pouts a bit, but leads the group into a cafeteria.
The fare here is not that much different than what was served in Terceira's village, though a lot more packaged for efficiency.
The main menu item seems to be the flat wheat pancakes, with chopped up meat and vegetables and other items piled on top, then the pancakes rolled around them into a portable package.
Eric_Lionheart hmms.
Cassandra_Lionheart drools "Nice."
Pak eats the pancakes happily <#
[OOC] Hector: You made me hungry, you bastard.
A few containers of liquid are collected at one end, with faucets apparently designed to mate up with something.
[OOC] WC GM: I'm going to have to get food after the game too. :P
ORN investigates the faucets themselves
[OOC] Riia: Aha, burritos instead of fajitas.
Segunda: "Oh, that's right, you wouldn't have any. HEY, CHEFIE, SOME GOURDS PLEASE!"
Hector gets one of those pancakes and fills it up with meat and nothing else.
A set of leather pouches are flung from the kitchen in back. Each one is topped with a nozzle that seems like the other half of the dispensers.
Cassandra_Lionheart makes a couple of burritoes and sits down, leaving room for Riia or Eric to sit next to her.
Hector sits next to Pak.
Segunda grabs them and distributes, then stows the leftovers nearby. "We use these to carry around drinks."
Felicia: "…Ah!"
Eric Lionheart: "Intresting."
Pak eats burritos~ <3
Pak: "Ah, um, thanks, miss Segunda~"
Hector: "Hm. Int'r'sting."
ORN finds a spot to sit and observe
[OOC] Sakha: Fountain Drinks?
Felicia tries some of this…
[OOC] WC GM: Basically. Water, unsweetened cocoa, and lemonade.
[OOC] WC GM: Also coffee, of course.
Hector gets coffee.
Pak sips froms the gourds. "Oooh… Tasty <3"
Pak got lemonade :3
Eric_Lionheart takes some lemonade.
Pak drinks plenty of it!
Pak: "…"
Pak: "…Aha!"
Pak: "Umm… uhh…"
Pak nods. "Segunda, where can I go to the bathroom? >_>"
Cassandra_Lionheart takes some lemonade and smiles
Segunda smiles, and offers her hand to Pak. "I'll show you. <3"
Sakha gets te lemonade too.
Ahiru sticks with water.
Riia doesn't trust this "sugar" stuff and sticks with water as well.
[OOC] Riia: Also, looks like more pakpron.
Hector quirks an eyebrow up at Pak. Yeah, his little brother's becoming a man alright. More than he is. Sigh.
ORN watches
[OOC] Hector: As in, "more often".
[OOC] Hector: Pak gets more bumper than a bodyshop.
[OOC] Felicia: *rimshot*
Pak gets led off by Segunda. n.n;
Riia munches on a burrito…
ORN nods
ORN looks at Eric and ponders
Cassandra_Lionheart eats her burrito also and smiles for once.
Eric_Lionheart blinks at ORN.
Hector gets another MEAT-TACULAR burrito.
Hector wishes there was cheese, but he hasn't seen a cow in ages.
ORN: "You have not been violated by females in any way since joining This Group. Is this the doing of your magical style?"
[OOC] Riia: Heh. Naw, it's just that he hasn't been here THAT long…
Cassandra_Lionheart spits out her burriot "ORN!!"
Sakha: "Being violated isn't required to be in the group, ORN."
[OOC] Cassandra Lionheart: burrito even
Eric Lionheart: "…"
ORN: "But This Group has encountered several villages already. Is it not strange?"
ORN points at pak's empty seat
ORN: "Hector was also popular in the Viera lands."
Sakha: "We aren't among Viera."
Cassandra Lionheart: "No it is not strage. And for the record, I was not violated by them, okay?"
ORN: "… … … Cassie is not male."
[OOC] Cassandra Lionheart: strange
Felicia coughs.
[OOC] Sakha: But Cassie has been violated by ORN hasn't she?
Cassandra_Lionheart looks at ORN and ia flushed red with anger!
[OOC] ORN: more like she comitted statutory rape
[OOC] Cassandra Lionheart: We kind of planned that…never came to be.
[OOC] Hector: Statue-tory?
[OOC] ORN: term for screwing someone underaged if you're not also underaged.
Hector: "Besides Pak and Sakha, mithra don't seem to like me."
[OOC] Sakha: Isn't she 17?
[OOC] WC GM: And he isn't.
[OOC] Cassandra Lionheart: Yes
[OOC] Hector: STATUE.
[OOC] Sakha: I got it
[OOC] WC GM: Or, well, it. And at least one person got the joke. ;)
[OOC] Felicia: Lulz.
Eric Lionheart: "…This group is so…bizarre at times."
Sakha: "Who says I like you?" She smiles at Hector.
Cassandra_Lionheart looks at Eric "They wanted to see me naked. They ganged up on me. I wasn't removing clothes willingly!"
ORN: "Your smiles for one"
Eric Lionheart: "…"
ORN nods at Sakha
Eric Lionheart: "I…did not…need to know that…"
ORN: "This Unit will claim it at least."
Cassandra_Lionheart shuts up, and goes back to eating
ORN shakes head at Eric
Sakha glares at ORN.
ORN: "Worry not, it is only natural. Cassie is quite attractive, although their tastes may have been a little on the easy side. They also found heavy attraction to waterfowl."
ORN: "Mind you their tastes were not necessarily all that strange, given their enjoyment of This Unit's participation."
Cassandra_Lionheart blushes big time "ORN!! Please."
Ahiru looks up, and goes to eat some lettuce.
Riia is not listening.
Riia leaves the room to facilitate her not listening.
Cassandra_Lionheart follow Riia, after getting another burrito
Cassandra Lionheart: "I can't believe you would say that ORN!!"
ORN: "? ? ?"
Thus it is that Riia and Cassandra see an argument on the beach, between the workers and some recently-arrived pirates.
ORN: "Cassie IS quite attractive. As is Riia. This Unit does not see how that would be construed as an insult"
Riia creeps up and listens
Eric Lionheart: "…"
Felicia growls at ORN.
Eric Lionheart: "I'm going over here to read."
Pirate: "It was supposed to be half again as long!"
ORN nods
ORN: "You also"
Worker: "But we were told-"
[OOC] ORN: can't leave poor felicia out ;p
Cassandra_Lionheart creeps also, and looks at Riia.
Pirate: "Nevermind that! Make it longer or ELSE!"
Sakha follows Eric. "Sounds like a plan, what will you be reviewing?"
Hector is left all alone again.
Eric Lionheart: "Some magical theory."
[OOC] ORN: hector has competition?
Cassandra_Lionheart looks at Riia, and gives her a confused look
Sakha: "Pertaining to which subject? It's a broad category."
Riia looks around and snarls silently…
[OOC] Hector: Hard to tell.
Cassandra_Lionheart listens in
[OOC] Hector: Nerds of a feather or something.
[OOC] Riia: Pirates probably leaving…
[OOC] Riia: Hopefully, anyway…
Worker: "B-but we can't finish it by tonight!"
Hector wonders what's taking Pak so long. In the meantime, he's just drinking coffee.
Riia looks for a ship
[OOC] Riia: Well, that screws that…
[OOC] Riia: Riia's looking for the ship the pirates came on, btw.
Riia easily sees the pirates' ship, docked by coincidence where ORN was feeding earlier.
Felicia gets up, going to look around a bit.
[OOC] Riia: Aha, the beach.
Cassandra_Lionheart is still confused "What are they trying to finish?" whipsering to herself
ORN: "?"
Riia hears Felicia coming outside, rolls over, waves to get Felicia's attention, then puts her finger to her lips.
Felicia sees Cassandra and Riia looking at the pirates.
[OOC] Riia: I can't figure out how to sign pirates, though.
Felicia: "…?"
Cassandra_Lionheart whispers "They are planning something."
[OOC] Sakha: Make an "ARR!" face?
[OOC] WC GM: Make a fist, but extend the pointer and middle fingers in a hook-like arc, then draw it in waves horizontally.
ORN: "Problem?"
[OOC] WC GM: Unofficial American Sign Language for "ARRR!", based on the ASL sign for "R".
Riia taps Cassie and points at the ship that's been made, and holds up one finger on each hand. then slides one hand over to join the other so the two are together.
Cassandra Lionheart: "Trying to finish it? Now? It doesn't even look half way done."
Riia shrugs
Eric Lionheart: "Just in general, Sakha."
ORN: "… Eliminating the pirates would grant them additional time would it not?"
Riia shrugs
Cassandra Lionheart: "Shall we see what they need then?"
Riia puts her finger to her lips
Sakha: "Well you HAVE to start somewhere. I was reviewing the relations of the elements this morning with Pak for instance."
Cassandra_Lionheart nods, and stops talkng to listen in.
Pak pops up right about then, literally. Teleporting is fun.
[OOC] Riia: Though that's just because Riia prefers to hide and watch, she thinks that attacking without clear superiority is idiocy.
Pak: "Segunda heard something, what's happening?"
[OOC] Riia: Does Pak have pants on?
[OOC] Pak: Yes.
[OOC] Riia: Aww.
Cassandra_Lionheart looks at Pak, and shushes him!
Segunda runs out of the cafeteria, sees most of the party hiding, and hides with them.
Felicia jumps from surprise.
Eric Lionheart: "That could be a good part to start with…."
Riia pounces Pak and takes him to the ground, covering his mouth with her hand
Riia can smell Segunda's scent on Pak.
[OOC] Riia: Figures.
Cassandra_Lionheart whispers "Segunda, are they your pirates?"
Riia sits up, puts the finger from one hand against her lips, and takes the other one off his mouth.
Segunda nods.
ORN: "… Its just wood and pirates. Elimination can proceed smoothly if you wish for a day off."
Pirate: "Well, we'll just wait here 'til sundown."
Cassandra_Lionheart blinks and listens in
The pirate looks off to the horizon. "And what do you know? It's sundown already!"
Cassandra Lionheart: "Think we can take them?
[OOC] Cassandra Lionheart: "
ORN nods at Cassie
Segunda growls quietly. "This was NOT the deal!"
ORN: "Deal?"
Segunda: "They must be here to recruit more slaves."
Cassandra Lionheart: "Segunda..up to you now. What do you want to do?"
ORN: "?"
Pak mmph? x.x
Riia sighs
Hector is drinking coffee at the food-place, still, waiting for someone to get back.
Pak is confused…
Riia shrugs and make a repeating stabbing gesture.
ORN: "By changing the terms of a contract without authorisation, do they not effectively break this contract, freeing you from obligation?"
Hector saw Segunda running by, form the bathroom to outside, in quite a hurry.
Cassandra Lionheart: "Pak, get the others, and tell them to be very quiet, okay?"
[OOC] Riia: That is, just like me, Riia recommends stabbing.
ORN shatters right hand, splits the forearm and sets a round
Segunda: "Contract? They give us orders. We follow them or die."
Riia draws rifle, then draws the Energetic Booster.
ORN: "… Then you have no qualms about This Unit performing genocide on the pirate race."
Cassandra Lionheart: "So, YOU'RE hostage to them pretty much?"
Hector puts his coffee down and looks out the door.
ORN nods at Riia, seeing her getting ready to do the same
Segunda blinks at ORN. "…that would be my wildest dream, yes."
[OOC] Riia: Stabbing it is.
Felicia: "It could be obliged…"
Hector: "Delusions?"
Segunda stands up. "EXCUSE ME."
The pirates look at her, noticing the party.
ORN: "… Then This Unit suggests the preparation of festivities"
Cassandra_Lionheart stands up with her "Yeah, what do you think you are doing?"
Hector looks for Sakha and Eric. Maybe they know where Segunda went.
Even Hector hears Segunda's call.
ORN levels his arm and lancer's a background (or foreground) pirate before stepping forward
Hector: "Hm."
Pak looks up?
[OOC] Riia: But does Sakha?
Pak: "I'm confused… but I guess we're fighting?"
Hector is still looking around for Eric and Sakha. If there's gonna be a throwdown, he wants the whole crew there.
[OOC] WC GM: Yep. Everyone in the village heard it unless they were ignoring it. Of course, Sakha might take a bit longer to respond.
[OOC] Riia: Also, ORN, according to convention we bluster first before combat starts.
Hector sees Eric, and a pending throwdown, outside.
[OOC] ORN: she said excuse me. talking was made. its all good.
[OOC] WC GM: Nothing prevents ORN from stepping forward.
Pirate: "Looking to fight, eh?"
[OOC] ORN: besides, if half of them are swordies, then making'em need a round to close in on all our range users pits the odds further on us
[OOC] Sakha: Sakha doesn't hurry, she'll come at the call, but she'll take her time and get there by second round
Hector: "Hey, Eric. Y'hear that? You 'n Sakha should probably come with me."
Cassandra Lionheart: "No, wondering about a couple of thing actually."
The pirate looks to her fellows. "Alright, my hearties. Y'ARR!"
Eric Lionheart: "Hmm? Okay."
Hector: "My best guess is that everyone else is there."
ORN loudly points out: "Negative. Simple systematic slaughter."
Pak hops up, ready to attack! "YAAAR!"
Hector rushes to the where everyone else is.
The other pirates draw their swords and echo in perfect harmony, "Y'ARRR!"
Felicia draws her sword. "What they said."
Riia snarls
Cassandra_Lionheart screams her head off "RAAAWWWWRRR!"
The workers back away.
Ahiru: "Y'ARRRRR! heehee that's fun!"
The pirates sweatdrop. The captain responds, "No, no. Y'ARR."
Cassandra Lionheart: "You better back off!"
[OOC] Eric Lionheart: Wasn't we supposed to end around now?
Eric Lionheart: "Arr?"
Cassandra Lionheart: "Okay..YYYYYAAAAARRRR!"
PirateCaptain: "Better! Y'ARR!"
Hector facepalms.
Hector: "Unbridled idiocy."
Cassandra Lionheart: "Wait…why are we YARRing for?"
[OOC] ORN: I gotta get going in about 5
PirateCaptain: "Not that it'll matter once you're dead!" She points her sword at the group.
Sakha: "This is just a shouting contest?"
Cassandra Lionheart: "Dead? Please. What can you do?"
[OOC] Sakha: And on with the Curling match!
Pak: "Yarrrrr!"
PirateCaptain: "This! CHARRRRRRGE!"
The pirates do just that.
