EC Session 5.7

Sunset, Boltember 3 Minday.
[OOC] Riia: Waiting for init.
[OOC] WC GM: Recapping first. :P
The party, with Segunda, face off against the incoming mob of pirates. //
Segunda looks around. "Everyone who ain't up to fighting, BACK!"
ORN most definitely not 'back'
WC GM: //Battle order: Ahiru:28 ORN:27 BlueBladeGH:21 Segunda:21 Pak:20 Sakha:20 BlueBladeEF:20 BlueBladeIJ:20 Cassandra:19 Hector:19 BlueBladeCD:19 Riia:18 BlueBladeKL:17 BlueBladeAB:16 Eric:15 Felicia:11 //
[OOC] Riia: I wish FFRPG would properly handle ranged weapons.
[OOC] WC GM: Ahiru!
Pak: "I can try to wipe them out quickly…!"
[OOC] Pak: Riia- play a Map Combat game then.
[OOC] Riia: Saiai - even the early FFs, which were NOT map combat, had range. Sort of.
[OOC] Riia: Specifically, you had two ranks.
[OOC] ORN: back in the day we had front/back rows though, they worked quite well there
[OOC] Pak: Rows?
[OOC] Riia: Yup.
[OOC] Hector: Hoes!
[OOC] Riia: Honestly Riia isn't suited for Front Row, given her low HP score.
[OOC] Riia: Anyway, Ahiru's up.
Ahiru shifts into a duck and attacks AB! Whoa fast!
Ahiru rolled 1d100 and got 41 ( Total: 41 ) **
[OOC] WC GM: hit
Ahiru rolled 3d8+198 and got 6, 7, 5 for a total of 216
Blue Blade A gets it in the end. Looks like that hurt!
Though the pirate is still up.
ORN expands the orbiting finger and palm section crystals as they launch upwards in an expanding circle, before firing an arc at them and crashing them into the enemy party, detonating them into a field of electric death!
ORN rolled 3d12+299 and got 4, 5, 4 for a total of 312
[OOC] ORN: they seal immune?
[OOC] WC GM: Yes, but W: Lightning
WC GM rolled 1d1+311,150% and got 1 for a total of 468.0
[OOC] ORN: oooh
While it does not fell any of them, it does obviously hurt.
Blue Blade G strikes at Sakha!
WC GM rolled 1d100 and got 36 ( Total: 36 )
ORN: "Note to This Unit. New hand required. Assimilate targets or buffet upon elimination."
[OOC] Sakha: Not even A?
Pak raaar~!
[OOC] WC GM: Nope. A's not in SOS yet.
Pak: "Stop hiiting my sister~! Especially when she's not PAYING ATTENTION *_*"
WC GM rolled 3d10+180,200% and got 9, 10, 9 for a total of 416.0
Sakha is hit for 416, ARM damage.
Pak Uraaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa
Felicia: "…"
[OOC] Hector: Sakha crumples and dies, right?
Blue Blade H strikes at one of the workers!
[OOC] WC GM: No, she's still up. Berzerk, though.
[OOC] ORN: actually if she was at max hp her armor should still be enough… yeah.
ORN glances at sakha and nods
[OOC] Sakha: HP:21/388-MP:491/491-Limit:367/388/582.0/776.0/970.0-SOS:97.0
[OOC] WC GM: And you just ate, so you just healed HP/MP

WC GM rolled 3d10+180 and got 9, 10, 4 for a total of 203
Pak gaoooos~! "You want water magic?! I'll show you water magic…!"
[OOC] Hector: Is Pak at limit?
The sword sails clear and true for the worker's neck…only to stop in midair.
[OOC] Pak: Yup.
Segunda holds the sword clapped between her hands. "You will NOT harm anyone under my protection!"
[OOC] Hector: Blade Grasp!
[OOC] Hector: Or something.
ORN recognizes a protective style not that dissimilar to his own functions.
[OOC] WC GM: Pak!
[OOC] Sakha: Probably cover
Pak pulls out… more knives than perhaps he should have, throwing them high into the sky!
[OOC] ORN: or their low hp makes them considered SOS for that purpose and she's sentinel on all the workers.
[OOC] ORN: would make sense for it to trigger on things with no combat ability that can be oneshot
Pak snaps his fingers, and a stormcloud appears… a glittering knife falls from it, then another and another, until thousands of knives fall like raindrops onto the enemy pirates!
[OOC] Hector: Shades of Monica from Growlanser 3.
Eric_Lionheart just…blinks.
Pak rolled 12d100 and got 35, 75, 21, 80, 82, 25, 93, 87, 48, 71, 71, 41 for a total of 729
Eric Lionheart: "Since when do storm clouds rain sharp weapons…?"
[OOC] Pak: 130 Chance of success to reduce all targets to 1 HP
[OOC] WC GM: Cover, specifically. Worker's at low HP despite not having been "hit" flavortext-wise.
[OOC] WC GM: Pak: 130, EVA?
[OOC] Sakha: Sakha would comment but cannot since she's berserk
[OOC] Pak: Oh, and… MP damage based on water element and physical
Pak rolled 3d6+162 and got 3, 5, 3 for a total of 173
All of the pirates except G and H get hit a lot.
[OOC] Pak: So if they have MP, they just lost some. Or gained some if they're A- Water or something
ORN looks at Eric: "Rather often given Pak and Sakha's existance."
[OOC] WC GM: Sakha!
Eric Lionheart: "…"
Pak huuus. "…One group attack should take most of them out…"
Cassandra Lionheart: "You got it."
Sakha attacks the one that attacked her with a burst from her wand!
Sakha rolled 1d100 and got 34 ( Total: 34 )
[OOC] Eric Lionheart: Berserk is random target.
[OOC] WC GM: hit
[OOC] WC GM: It is, but I'll allow this one.
Sakha rolled 3d8+209,150% and got 6, 4, 2 for a total of 331.5
Blue Blade G takes it between the legs. Even if she lacks certain equipment there, that still looks like it hurt.
Blue Blades E, F, I, and J look at each other, processing Pak's and Cassandra's comments, and charge with "Y'ARRR"s!
WC GM rolled 4d100 and got 60, 81, 44, 41 ( Total: 226 )
WC GM rolled 4#3d10+180(1) and got 3, 9, 10 for a total of 202

WC GM got a total of 790)
Cassandra is hit for 202, ARM then 195, ARM then 190, ARM then 203, ARM damage.
[OOC] WC GM: Cassandra!
Eric Lionheart: "Cass…Cassandra! Are you okay?!"
[OOC] Cassandra Lionheart: one second…
[OOC] Hector: Completely blasted her HP.
[OOC] Pak: She has decent HP and ARM.
[OOC] Pak: She may have lived
[OOC] Pak: Also, if she took enough damage, sentinel would have kicked in near the end.
[OOC] Pak: >_>
[OOC] Cassandra Lionheart: Can we NOT scroll up, K thanks.
[OOC] ORN: she's probably ok given her armor
[OOC] ORN: and pak's quite right. if any of those hits took her to SOS I took the remaining ones
[OOC] Cassandra Lionheart: 74/488, SOS-Power Up and Limit up
[OOC] WC GM: I believe she's up, but only that last hit put her in SOS, so none of them absorbed by ORN.
[OOC] ORN: in any case, now she's definitely under it.
Cassandra_Lionheart is glowing red with anger "YOU LITTLE PRICKS!!!! POWER WAVE!" and lashes her sword into the groun ripping out a Porjectile at A, that reflectes to all the other pirates!
[OOC] Sakha: So 2 people berserked, fun…
Cassandra Lionheart rolled 3d12+195,300% and got 2, 1, 6 for a total of 612.0
[OOC] Riia: I think the glow is just a side effect of the Power Up'd.
[OOC] Cassandra Lionheart: yeah..they are all dead…
[OOC] Hector: Let your sooooooooooooooooooul glow.
All of the pirates except G and H drop.
BlueBladesGH: "…meep."
Cassandra_Lionheart glares at G and H "BOOO!"
Pak huus~ And cracks his neck~
[OOC] WC GM: Hector!
Pak: "Hector, can you clean these guys up, anyway? n.n"
Hector smirks. "You know what? Let's go!" *Command: Assault*
[OOC] Riia: Heh.
Hector: "And now…"
*charges up a Thunder Strike, which goes off at 7.
[OOC] WC GM: If they live that long. Riia!
Riia hefts the Energetic Booster! …then just shoots H.
Riia rolled 1d100 and got 12 ( Total: 12 )
[OOC] Riia: …..Crit
[OOC] WC GM: Also - "This Cassie of mine is burning red"? ;)
Riia rolled 3d12+322,200% and got 3, 6, 12 for a total of 686.0
[OOC] ORN: indeed she is
There goes H.
[OOC] Riia: All 20 of her HP are gone…
[OOC] WC GM: Eric!
Pak: "One pirate left…"
[OOC] WC GM: Actually, H had 471 HP left.
Riia winces at the mess the bullet made of H's face…
Eric_Lionheart sighs and tries to knock the pirate over with a gust of wind. (Aera)
Eric Lionheart rolled 1d100 and got 98 ( Total: 98 )
[OOC] Eric Lionheart: wut
[OOC] Felicia: Magic.
[OOC] WC GM: Good thing magic can't crit/botch
[OOC] Hector: Ah, that's good. Long as it beats MEva.
[OOC] Hector: Not a lot has high MEva, at least.
Eric fumbles with the wording, but the spell comes through anyway.
[OOC] WC GM: hit
Eric Lionheart rolled 3d8+228 and got 8, 6, 8 for a total of 250
Eric_Lionheart erghs a bit. He's not used to using offensive magic, as his selections there are limited.
G wobbles but she doesn't go down…yet.
[OOC] WC GM: Felicia!
Eric Lionheart: "And I thought I could just push that one over…"
Felicia frowns. This was over quick. She holds up her blade, a bolt of lightning crashing to it as she swings it at the remaining pirate.
Felicia rolled 1d100 and got 51 ( Total: 51 )
Cassandra Lionheart: "Grrr. Just fall will you!"
[OOC] WC GM: hit
Eric Lionheart: "Maybe I need to hit the books later."
Felicia rolled 3d10+312,150% and got 3, 3, 1 for a total of 478.5
Felicia cleanly bisects that last pirate. Her pieces fall.
Pak: "Haaah~"
Sakha is still blasting their corpses in her rage.
Pak: "That felt good~ I got some nice stresses out of my system~!"
Hector finds himself without targets, unless he cares to attack a corpse.
Hector powers down.
Eric_Lionheart looks ill at that scene.
Hector: "Well, that was a little unncessary, thanks to Pak."
Eric_Lionheart spams Cura twice to make sure everyone is healthy, though.
WC GM rolled 12d100 and got 10, 12, 96, 85, 49, 29, 31, 84, 1, 24, 40, 57 ( Total: 518 )
Riia shrugs
Pak: "Anyway, please recover our berserked party members, Eric, before she destroys the entire town. n.n;"
Pak mmmphs~
Eric Lionheart rolled 3d8+228 and got 6, 4, 2 for a total of 240
Eric Lionheart rolled 3d8+228 and got 3, 7, 6 for a total of 244
Pak feels totally relaxed n.n
Eric Lionheart: "Done and done. If that doesn't mend your wounds, nothing will."
[OOC] ORN: ooh… a one…
Cassandra_Lionheart looks as the red glow fades into her gloves
From the ashes of the corpses are recovered 4 Phoenix Downs, 3 Hi-Potions, 3 Water Gems, and 1 Falchion
Sakha: "Dirty… rotten… stinking…"
Riia doesn't take anything, wanting to keep some potions in distribution
Pak: "…Hey, there's a sword."
Pak: "Sword-peeps, go check it out~"
Cassandra_Lionheart picks up a Hi-Potion
Hector snags the three high pots.
[OOC] Hector: More like two.
Felicia is the sword peep. And already has one.
Pak grabs one (1) water gem.
[OOC] Eric Lionheart: Wait a moment, can I use Tame THIS time? >.>
[OOC] Hector: Brings me up to an even ten.
Hector picks up the Falchion and twirls it around.
[OOC] WC GM: You can try.
Pak: "Planning on selling that, Niichan?"
Pak feels very relaxed. n.n
Hector: "Yep."
Pak: "…Aww, and Sakha's all pissed again."
ORN stabs his battle-arm through a corpse, into the beach, and concentrates for a moment
[OOC] ORN: IMing reis wind
Cassandra Lionheart: "Wait…I didn't even get an answer about why they know my fighting style?"
Felicia: "…"
Felicia: "What is there to know?"
The corpse - one of the more intact ones - slowly blinks back to life.
ORN: "You use swords. They use swords. Would not your teacher have learned from somewhere? And would not his teacher have learned from somewhere?"
[OOC] ORN: actually I was just sucking up some calcium, the reis wind was for rest of the party, but eh ^^;;;
Pirate: "Y'AR-"
It is at this point that she apparently realizes there is still a weapon impaling her to the beach.
[OOC] Hector: 7900 gil for the Falchion, so selling it is…3450.
[OOC] ORN: whatever works ^^;
[OOC] WC GM: Something for Eric to Tame.
[OOC] Hector: NOICE.
Cassandra Lionheart: "Yes. but still!"
*see her* "Well hello."
Eric_Lionheart looks at the pirate. "Hey, help us out sometime and you can go your seperate ways. If you don't want to help, well…my companion here likely knows a few ways to…make sure you don't bother us later."
ORN looks at arm
ORN looks at the one staring at him
ORN looks at Eric
Pak: "Oh, awesome."
Pak: "One of them are still alive! :3"
Pirate: "…y'arr?"
Cassandra Lionheart: "Yeah, Y'arr!"
Pak scoots over and smiles cutely at the pirate. n.n
Eric Lionheart: "…I'll take that as a yes. ORN, remove your weapon from the pirate."
Eric Lionheart: "Or your arm, or whatever you call it."
The pirate blinks in confusion at Pak.
ORN rips out his arm, a large slop of quickly changing sand hanging from it, and closes it back up
[OOC] Riia: "Yarr yar yaaarr!"
ORN makes a fist a few times and nods
Pirate: "Yer…tryin' to imitate Juan?"
Pak: "Huh?"
Pak blinks, then shakes his head. "I've never met him~"
Sakha raises an eyebrow.
Eric Lionheart: "Can you tell us more about this Juan?"
Felicia: "…?"
ORN: "Whom do you refer to?"
Pirate: "Well o'course ye haven't met him. Maria keeps 'im under lock an' key."
Pak: "Someone mentioned Juan a while back… oh, yeah…"
Riia blinks
The pirate sits up.
Pak: "Eric, shouldn't you repair that… er, hole… in her stomach?"
Cassandra Lionheart: "Juan? Tell me, did he teach you the same sword techniques I have?"
Pirate: "Ya know, Juan. The perfect man, given t' us by Mer."
Riia grins in quiet triumph
ORN ».» «.« at mention of hole
[OOC] Eric Lionheart: My understanding is that somehow ORN did it, but I could have misread the action.
Sakha: "Pak's no where near perfect."
Pirate: "Well…that's what some say, anyway. Me? I ain't so sure. I've never met 'im either."
[OOC] Riia: Yeah, Reis' Wind IMed.
There is still a large hole in the pirate's belly. She does not seem to notice her bleeding all over the sand.
Pak: "Anyway, how was I imitating him?"
Pak stands and flicks tail.
Pirate: "By tryin' to look…desirable."
Riia points at Pak's hat, then at Pak's boy-parts
Pak: "…Oh."
Pak: "Nah, I wasn't really trying."
[OOC] ORN: yeah, that was sorta to replace the hand ORN threw at them, while also assimilating the party a bit to heal them too while he was ati it ^^;;;
Pak: "I just feel really happy at the moment n.n;"
[OOC] Riia: "I'm desireable without even trying!"
Segunda marches over and imposes herself between the pirate and Pak. "Hands off. He's mine."
[OOC] Pak: That's a trap for ya
[OOC] ORN: dead hostiles aren't something ORN would revive… just that there was armor and calcium to assimilate. Trying to expand culinary horizons here!
Pak: "Eep!"
[OOC] Riia: I wonder when Mithra Guard is gonna show up to dispute the claim.
Hector is checking the rest of the dead pirates for loose change while everyone else is talking.
Cassandra Lionheart: "Anyways. Help us, and we will heal you."
[OOC] Hector: Hey, we have to get gil after each session SOMEHOW, y'know.
[OOC] WC GM: Fyl isn't here, and while the cat's away…
Riia is watching the Pirate Ship with her rifle ready
The ship the pirates came in on seems empty. Looks like you got the entire crew.
Pak: "…"
[OOC] Riia: Right, while the queen is away the tom is free to bang as many chicks as he wants.
Pak: "Hey!"
Eric_Lionheart heals the pirate.
Riia taps ORN's arm and points to the boat with her rifle.
Riia: //? //
Pak: "Maybe we can take their ship! We've been needing a way to get around without wandering around in tunnels.
Between Hector's looting of the corpses and the treasure on the ship, there are 3686 Gil for each member of the party.
Eric Lionheart: "I'm not a big fan of theft…"
[OOC] WC GM: 9333 XP each too.
ORN: "Hostiles do not constitute theft."
Felicia: "They tried to thieve us. We get to thieve them."
Felicia: "Perfectly acceptable."
Riia shakes her head loosely at Eric, but doesn't know how to explain it…
Hector: "Orn and Felicia have a good point."
ORN: "These were rightfully eliminated. Their things now belong to This Group."
[OOC] Riia: Would be something along the lines of using every part of the animal you kill
Hector: "We need a boat more than they do. They have a lot of 'em."
Hector: "We have none."
ORN nods
Eric Lionheart: "Well, this pirate that got restored will hopefully aid us."
Pirate: "…if yer serious…ahh, Mer's gonna kill me if I don't help…"
ORN: "Any remaining pirates on the ship will require elimination. However, due to their ideology and hostility to This Group, slaughter is not a moral issue at this time."
ORN: "Things generally try to kill This Group anyways, so slaughter is rarely a moral issue."
Sakha raises an eyebrow at ORN.
[OOC] Cassandra Lionheart: bb
Pirate: "I know! I'll lead ya straight to Maria's den. That's where ye wanna go anyway, right? Maybe then Mer'll spare me."
Eric Lionheart: "That sounds perfect."
Hector: "That'd work."
ORN shakes head at the pirate
ORN: "His name is Eric."
Riia is confused now
Riia looks at ORN, questioning
Pirate: "No, I mean Mer. Spirit o' the sea."
ORN nods
ORN points at Eric
ORN: "The one you need to worry about now."
By now, Segunda and some workers are tossing the bodies into the forest.
Riia shrugs
Riia raises one hand, raises the other, then shakes both up and down
Eric Lionheart: "I cannot support violence without at least attempting to negotiate, as a note, ORN. If they attack first, that's fine, but if they aren't going after us or others right away, might as well try to talk it out."
[OOC] Riia: Gotta worry about both.
ORN stares at Riia's dancing and nods approvingly
[OOC] Riia: Also, assassination is unethical if you're not planning to eat them, and Riia doesn't believe in eating sentients.
[OOC] Riia: And Riia is NOT doing the hokey pokey!
Eric_Lionheart hmms. "I need to learn some sort of sign language to properly talk with you, Riia…"
[OOC] ORN: …. true… not really any reason to assimilate them if you guys aren't hurt…
Riia winks at Eric and blows him a kiss
Pak: "Okay, good… we can has boat."
Pak nodnods.
Pak: "Now then!"
Eric_Lionheart blushes.
[OOC] Riia: Heh
Pak: "We WERE planning to go meet up with these pirates. We need to deal with Mer…"
Cassandra_Lionheart giggles at Eric "Awww."
Eric_Lionheart blinks at Pak's…abuse of the Common language there.
Riia snickers
ORN sparkles and nods
Hector glances at Sakha, then looks out at the ship.
Cassandra Lionheart: "I don't know. Think I could snea you guys on?"
The pirate slowly stands up, then staggers over to the boat. Along the way, the parts of her armor that ORN assimilated fall apart, though not leaving her completely naked.
[OOC] Riia: Fran-type armor now?
Cassandra_Lionheart picks up the pieces, and goes into the boat
Sakha makes an Ice Staircase to get into the Pirate Ship.
As the pirate climbs a rope ladder, Trombe - having been hidden on deck - leans over the side and picks the pirate's head up in its beak.
Pak: "Do you mind that we're capturing you, by the way? Or would you rather be- wah!"
Trombe: "Hostile detected."
Cassandra Lionheart: "TRombe, she is with us!"
ORN sparkles
Hector: "Trombe! Don't eat her!"
Pak: "Wait, what the heck is Trombe doing here?!"
Hector: "She's important to use alive!"
ORN: "Hostile currently prisoner. Avoid completing slaughter before utility is at an end"
Felicia: "…wut."
Sakha: "The found him, obviously."
Trombe looks at the group, and dumps the pirate on deck.
Trombe: "Negative. Initiative subroutine triggered. Reunion with group desired."
Trombe: "This unit walked around island to reach current location."
Sakha: "…"
Hector chuckles.
The pirate stares at Trombe in utter disbelief.
Hector: "Well, it's good that you're not too heavy for the ship. I was worried that you'd fall through the deck."
Cassandra_Lionheart looks at the female pirate and blinks
Riia grins
ORN: "Presence of the Trombe Unit prefered to organic transport. Water density allow for standard travel?"
Eric Lionheart: "ORN, there will be no slaughter of that pirate…"
Pak: "Can you actually stay on this ship…?"
Riia checks to see if Segunda or workers are near
Felicia clambers up onto the ship.
ORN jumps on
Segunda is walking towards the boat. The workers are starting to return to work.
Eric_Lionheart gets on the boat.
Cassandra Lionheart: "Excuse me, young lady? I wonder…Where did you learn your fighting style with the sword?"
Riia sighs and adjusts her hood
Pak: "Oh, and Segunda! Are you coming with us…?"
Trombe: "Displacement of boat apparently strong enough. Alternate transport method if necessary: this unit can move alongside transport."
ORN shakes head at Riia
Seguna: "What? No. I was hoping you'd stay here."
ORN: "Hiding is likely unneeded. In addition, you could act as a deterrent to the more superstitious ones"
ORN nods at Trombe
Riia: //ó.o //
Pak: "Oh…"
ORN: "Remain on board with This Group for now."
Pirate: "…ain't no one ever called me a 'lady' before."
Pak: "But… um…"
Pak mmphs.
Felicia catches her breath, then looks around for the steering.
Pak: "Okay, let's think about this. x.x"
[OOC] Riia: I should strike up a conversation with one of the workers, just to make WC even MORE distracted.
Cassandra Lionheart: "Well."
*fixes her armor a bit* "Same boat here, madam. I have been thrown out of my family."
[OOC] Riia: Oh wait, mute.
Segunda: "I need to stay here with my people anyway."
[OOC] Hector: Great Success! </Borat>
Hector: "You do that."
Hector: "We'll do what we gotta do, you do what you gotta do. That's how it all works."
Pirate: "…I never knew my family. Other than Mer an' my fellow pirates, that is."
Riia eyes Segunda, then eyes Pak…
Riia: //ô.o //
Pak: "Well, okay…"
Segunda: "But…I couldn't defend my people from the pirates all by myself. Do you seriously think you can take on all the pirates and LIVE?"
Cassandra Lionheart: "Aww. Well, this group here is my family also."
*me smiles, and sees the hole in her stomach* "Shoot! Can I try to help heal?"
Riia nods
Pak: "…Not… all of them?"
ORN: "This Unit's more or less detonated, failed or burned. Finding a new one was relatively simple, however."
Pak: "I'm not sure what our plan is."
The pirate's stomach has mostly been healed by Eric.
[OOC] Eric Lionheart: …I already friggen healed the pirate, Cassandra. ;/
Pak: "Guys, are we really planning to just run into their main fleet and kill everything…?"
Riia shakes head
[OOC] Cassandra Lionheart: ok, one second.
Pak: "Mer could easily sink us D:"
Felicia shrugs.
Riia points at sea…
ORN: "… That would be amusing. However, This Unit is rather ineffective at the surface kind of swimming."
Riia makes a throat slitting gesture and points at the sea.
Eric Lionheart: "…"
looks closer* "Oh, nevermind…It was residual blood. Anyways, where did you learn your swordsmanship?"
Riia sighs, worried that she's not getting her point across.
Pirate: "From th' other pirates."
ORN looks at Riia
[OOC] Riia: Trying to say that we're not gere to kill the pirates, we're here to kill Mer.
Hector: "Yeah, I think we should find a way to gather allies, or more weapons."
ORN: "Do you refer to mer's control over the element itself?"
Riia blinks at Hector's comment
[OOC] ORN: yeah but all ORN'S seeing is pointing at water and slitting throats ^^;
Riia: //=O //
Cassandra Lionheart: "Ah. Look, you remind me of me as I was years ago."
Riia jumps excitedly
Hector: "Somethin' to keep the pirates distracted long enough for us t'beat the crap outta Mer's avatar."
Pak sits on the edge of the boat. "Hnn."
Riia points at Segunda, then raises the number three
Eric Lionheart: "Three…"
Hector quirks an eyebrow up at Riia.
Riia thinks for a moment, shakes her head quickly, and raises the number one.
Felicia: "…"
ORN looks at Hector
ORN: "Such as a manifestation of Bolt's or Pyr's avatars?"
Eric Lionheart: "Hmm."
Eric_Lionheart hands Riia a piece of paper to write down what she is trying to tell the group.
Hector: "I'm not rightly sure. Just anything t'keep their main fleet outta our way."
Riia writes down, in all caps, PRIMEIRA
Eric Lionheart: "I think this will be a bit easier for you, at least."
Sakha: "We took out that group in no time, these guys are pushovers so we have no worries."
Eric Lionheart: "…Oh right."
Pak: "Hmm…"
Pak: "Still, I don't like it…"
ORN: "Trombe's Catapult system could allow for long range penetration of their hulls."
Pak: "…Of course, it doesn't help that I don't know how to swim…"
Pak: "If I could do that I'd probably feel more safe x.x"
ORN: "Pieces of wood are not exactly as resilient as large crystaline cities."
ORN: "This Unit could carry you, Pak"
[OOC] Riia: Eh, depends on the wood and the cities.
Eric Lionheart: "Large crystaline cities don't exist, so pieces of wood will do."
Felicia: "…You just sink, ORN."
Hector looks at the paper. "Ah, yes. Primeira."
ORN nods
[OOC] Riia: "My God, she's got walls of IRON!"
Eric Lionheart: "As a note, we still gotta find Primeira, I think."
Hector: "'cause we know where Terceira 'n Segunda are."
ORN: "This Unit's surface-swimming is rather ineffectual, but Pak's mobility would be unhindered"
Riia rolls eyes at Eric
Hector: "Not t'mention, maybe there's a big city out there with a Mignon innit."
Riia nods slowly
Cassandra_Lionheart nods
ORN: "A mingnon could indeed cause the required distraction. However the ensuing cleanup would be….."
Riia holds up the number three and mimes eating.
Pirate: "Ya lookin' fer the ironmaker? Good luck with that."
Riia holds up the number two and taps the ship with her foot.
Pak: "Why can't we look for her?"
ORN: "Thank you. But wishing luck does not include coordinates."
Riia holds up the number one and points at the pirate's sword…
Hector: "Orn, that's a brilliant idea!"
Pirate: "Yeah, she's th' one who made this."
She holds up her blade.
Pirate: "She does it or she an' her folk starve. 'At's th' deal."
Riia points to the horizons, and tilts her head.
ORN: "Not including coordinates does not seem like a brilliant idea to This Unit, Hector…"
Cassandra_Lionheart looks at the sword and looks over the detail of the sword.
Hector: "A Mignon could in fact whip up enough chaos to keep th'pirates outta the way."
[OOC] Riia: Mignon Primeira? =p
[OOC] Hector: All I can think of is Primada from Gaogaigar.
[OOC] Hector: Who btw is hawt.
Cassandra Lionheart: "Nice sword."
Pak: "Oh… hmm…"
Pak: "It's a really nice sword…"
Pak: "If we had her on our side… hmmm~"
Pak nods. "Could you lead us to her?"
Hector: "Perhaps Primeira AND the Mignon could work together!"
Pirate: "…tell ya what. Jus' head east from here."
The pirate points out to sea.
Cassandra Lionheart: "Yeah…No worries about paying inflated prices on weapons ever again."
Hector chuckles. "And I'd be glad I wouldn't be on th'receiving end a'that stuff."
Pak: "Well…"
Pak: "Uh…"
Pak: "…You're still coming with us. T_T;"
ORN: "… … Are you suggesting the Trombe Unit's catapult system could be used to launch massive razor-sharp pink ribbons, thus decimating incoming ships?"
Pirate: "O'course I'm comin' with ya!"
Pak: "I'm not sure any of us could steer a boat.'
ORN: "A partially assimilated Trombe Unit's catapult system would likely better be used to increase the bore-size of This Unit's white-cannon"
Segunda's ears are flat, and her tail droops. "…so you're determined to go, then."
ORN nods at Segunda
Eric Lionheart: "Sorry Segunda, but we have to."
Felicia waves at Pak. "Uhh."
Pak ohs.
Riia pets Segunda's shoulder and points up at the falling moon.
Segunda sighs, turns around, and heads back ashore. "It was nice knowing you. I hope they give you painless deaths."
Pak: "We have Felicia… okay, that's good…"
Pak: "Hey, we won't die!"
Pak thinks…
Eric Lionheart: "Not as long as I'm around, at least."
ORN: "Suppression of the berserk elemental spirits is required to avoid planetary collisions beyond This Series current capacity to assimilate. Many friendlies and neutrals, not to mention This Unit, would be eliminated by the impact, along with large portions of this planet."
Segunda looks up at the moon. "What about it?"
Pak: "Oh, right."
Pak hops down next to Segunda.
Segunda: "…"
Riia bites her lip…
Pak: "The moon's falling."
ORN: "Well, said moon is currently somewhat of an incoming projectile"
Cassandra_Lionheart looks at Segunda and sighs
Felicia: "Yup."
ORN: "Grav to blame."
ORN: "Thus the earthquakes, increased volcanic activity, severe atmospheric anomalies, increased tidal damage."
ORN: "Most of Mer's existance will be vaporised, however she does not seem to currently be in a state to understand this."
[OOC] Riia: Eh, it'll rain back down…except for what goes into rebuilding the shattered ozone layer.
[OOC] ORN: placing it in Aer's domain. but more to the point, the damage could throw rather massive amounts of matter off the planet
[OOC] Eric Lionheart: Not to mention kill all living things.
Segunda: "…I understand. You're as crazy as Mer."
[OOC] ORN: in the long term the end result is greatly increased mass, good for Gaia and Grav, but potentially shearing off the atmosphere and boiling out the oceans
[OOC] Riia: Mer's not Gaia, how much does she care?
Pak: "We're not crazy! >_<"
Segunda sighs and walks off. "Good luck to y'all."
[OOC] Riia: Not Gaia, Milf.
Pak hmphs!
ORN: "Negative. Insanity is for the weak."
Hector: "We're as sane as the rest a'the world is crazy."
Hector scratches the back of his head. "S'pose it's a hell of a farfetched thing t'think of, but I tell ya it's true."
Cassandra_Lionheart sighs "We have to fight to save everything."
Pak pouts.
Pak: "Anyway…"
Eric Lionheart: "Well, lets go see if we can save the world."
Pak looks at the group. "Is it okay if we come back here after we defeat Mer?"
ORN: "Not so much 'if' as 'in time'."
Eric Lionheart: "I'm not opposed."
ORN nods at Pak
Pak: "Okay, good."
Pak climbs back up onto the boat.
Trombe is on the foredeck, leaning over and gripping the small steering wheel in its massive beak.
ORN: "Of course. Higher incredulousness most likely guarantees higher rewards afterwards!"
Pak: "… Trombe, I don't think you can steer."
Riia lies down to get below the level of the rails and lowers her hood with a sigh of relief
Pak: "Felicia can handle it."
Trombe lets go and backs off.
The pirate STARES at Riia.
ORN glares at the pirate
Pirate: "You…you're…you're a…a…"
Eric_Lionheart looks at the pirate. "Remember, you agreed to help. It's a binding contract, and you will show her respect."
ORN: "She is. You are in no position to complain."
The pirate faints.
Felicia: "…Well."
Cassandra Lionheart: "Viera? Yeah, she is…"
Eric Lionheart: "…Eh, let her sleep for a bit."
Felicia: "Now that that's settled."
Riia closes her eyes with a look of smug satisfaction on her face.
Sakha is still pretending Riia does not exist
Pak: "…"
Eric Lionheart: "…Maybe that'll work against the other pirates.
Felicia blinks, gently attempting to push Trombe to the side.
Eric Lionheart: "
Cassandra_Lionheart sits next to the pirate and admires her sword some more
Pak: "Let's not push our luck with that."
ORN: "This Unit has already suggested as much."
Pak: "Anyway, are we all ready?"
Trombe moves enough for Felicia to have room to work.
ORN nods
Pak: "Let's head East! :3"
Pak: "…"
ORN hops atop the Trombe Unit to keep watch
Pak winces a little. "Ow… x.x;"
Eric Lionheart: "I'm going to study my magical theory."
Eric_Lionheart blinks at Pak. "Are you alright?"
Once the sails are deployed and the ship turned around, the ship does indeed begin to sail east, away from the island.
Sakha: "I'll join you Eric, we can share notes."
Pak: "I'm fine! x.x"
Felicia unwraps her left arm. It's in no position to wield a sword, but it could help her steer a bit…
Pak scoots away.
Felicia rolled 1d100 and got 75 ( Total: 75 )
[OOC] Felicia: Ships are at 100, so >_>
Hector stretches.
Hector: "I think I'm going to check out the captain's quarters."
Pak: "Go ahead~"
Eric Lionheart: "Alright Sakha."
Hector points at Pak. "You're my first mate."
Pak: "…Okay!"
Pak: "And Felicia's navigator?"
Felicia: "…"
Hector: "She'll steer this thing. Orn and Trombe can handle watch."
[OOC] Sakha: Felicia's Robin if we're from One Piece.
Cassandra_Lionheart looks down at the pirate, and props her head up, so she is laying on a bit of Cassie's a pillow
Hector: "Eric, you're the doctor. Keep us alive!"
[OOC] Sakha: Eric can be Chopper.
[OOC] Felicia: He's the pet!
[OOC] Sakha: Pak… is Usopp
[OOC] Pak: I'm not Usopp T_T
A ship is a ship. Although the fine details are unfamiliar, Felicia handles it quite well enough.
[OOC] Pak: I'm much prettier than that!
Eric Lionheart: "I'll certainly keep you alive…or bring you back to life as needed."
Hector: "Sakha can be…well, whatever she wants to be."
Sakha raises an eyebrow at Hector.
Felicia: "It may be best to avoid trying to put us in positions."
[OOC] Sakha: Hector is… hmm… Sanji or Frankie…
Pak heads below deck and looks for an empty room.
ORN: "Trombe Unit. Proof-of-concept outside of combat requirements may be preferable. Partial leg system assimilation of This Unit may be practiced if the Trombe Unit wishes, for This Group's original emergency planning."
[OOC] Sakha: Then Pak has to be Luffy
With the former crew slaughtered, there are plenty of empty rooms.
Hector then runs off to the captain's room.
Cassandra Lionheart: "Geeze…ORN! You did a number on this poor girls armor!"
ORN calls down
[OOC] Sakha: Hector to Sanji, ORN to Frankie
Hector finds the captain's cabin easily enough. Though he probably does not appreciate the porn stash easily found - of male mithras.
ORN: "This Unit needed a new Hand! Bones will be used instead if you wish, however!"
[OOC] ORN: pakmate?
[OOC] Felicia: dibs
Eric Lionheart: "You'll have to wait until we can find something you can use to replace that hand, ORN."
Hector: "…"
ORN: "Negative"
Pak: "Hector, what'd you find there?"
ORN waves the hand he tested earlier
Pak peeks over his shoulder.
Cassandra_Lionheart gets up, and gently rests her head on her old White mage cover "Rooms?"
Pak: "…"
Hector: "I found uh…lots of naked pictures of male mithras."
Trombe: "Agreement with assessment. Spare materials preferable for practice."
Pak: "…"
Pak: "…"
ORN: "The Buffet, rib and armor were more than enough to replace it."
[OOC] Ahiru: What did happen to ORN's hand?
Eric Lionheart: "…"
Hector: "And I'm not sure that anything Eric can cast could clean my eyes."
[OOC] ORN: He threw it and blew it up with that lightning wave
[OOC] Felicia: he shot it at someone
[OOC] Riia: He used it as a weapon.
Pak: "…"
[OOC] Hector: "What do you mean, it doesn't come back?"
[OOC] ORN: he's getting kinda nonchalant about the whole thing the more he does it ^^;;;
Eric Lionheart: "Maybe I can talk you into forgetting about it?"
Hector shoves it into the hallway.
Pak: "H-hey!"
Pak: "What if Sakha sees?!"
Pak grabs them and hides them in another room.
[OOC] ORN: he keeps it shattered and orbiting his wrist anyways when in combat so he can fire
Riia opens one eye
Hector: "They're not mine."
Sakha looks up. "See what?"
ORN nods at Trombe
Pak erks.
The posters and papers are easily removed from the cabin, although otherwise it seems a bit bare.
Pak is carrying a stack of male mithra porn. x.x
Cassandra_Lionheart looks for a room for herself
Hector: "Hm. Think I'll fix it up when I get the chance."
Riia sighs and sits up
ORN: "Base materials currently held from sentinel models may be used for this. Remaining handful will however be required in the modification and assimilation of the next set of destruct-art lessons. Improved defensive measures for plasma-emitters, you understand."
Pak: "…"
Cassandra_Lionheart finds a room "Hey Eric?"
Pak: "Um…"
ORN: "A few additional kilograms were also brought for This Unit's own replacement needs. Practice may commence."
Pak: "…"
Pak runs off into another room before Sakha says anything. x.x
Pak then slaps them down on the table. "T_T Okay, let's compare!"
Hector can easily tell that the captain of this ship would barely have been trusted with a fishing boat in Refuge. No log. No maps. Barely any crew comforts, though there are food supplies and the already-found Gil.
Sakha: "…"
ORN holds up the slab he got off the beach last session and kneels, before breaking up and concentrating on the Trombe Unit
Cassandra_Lionheart opens the door "Eric, can you come here for a minute? Please?"
Pak: "Maybe I'll find pictures of this Juan guy, too…"
Pak studies his own kind.
Hector sighs. "Alright, I'll need a copy of Felicia's map, then, to put on the wall, and then…"
Hector goes on and on about what he needs, even though there's nobody around.
Riia follows Pak curiously, then spots the porn.
Riia: //… //
Trombe stands perfectly still for ORN.
[OOC] Felicia: Bawww this again
[OOC] Riia: Mahtor, Pen!
Eric_Lionheart goes over to Cassie.
[OOC] Felicia: Wut
Cassandra_Lionheart motions Eric to get in the room
[OOC] Riia: Get a friggin landline!
Pak: "T_T I see! So I'm about… probably average size…"
Eric Lionheart: "What is it, cousin? I was about to start studying my magical theory…"
Pak: "We're kinda small, overall, huh…"
If there are any pictures of Juan in the stash, none are explicitly labeled as such.
Felicia yawns, leaning lazily over the wheel.
Pak blinks and looks up at Riia.
Pak: "…"
Riia grabs Pak by the collar and drags him out of the room.
Pak gacks!
Riia closes the door behind them.
Cassandra_Lionheart closes the door behind her when Eric gets into the room
Pak: "H-hey, what are you doing?!"
Riia then crosses her arms and stares at him.
Pak: "T_T;;; What?"
ORN attempts to charge self sections with the white-cannon technique, disruption circle to ensure proper penetration, and stabs all save his head, left standing on Trombe's, into trombe's lower sections
Cassandra Lionheart: "Sorry Eric….Can you help me adjust the armor again?"
Riia shakes her head in a very firm "No."
ORN then sees what he can feel and affect from there
Pak: "Hmph!"
[OOC] Riia: Pak is oversexed enough as it is for such a little boy.
[OOC] ORN: no, he's "not" 'kinda small overall, huh' to riia?
[OOC] Riia: There's a difference between "no" and "not."
As ORN penetrates towards Trombe's control systems, ORN feels itself ejected from the rear.
[OOC] Sakha: Pak IS Sakha's OLDER brother though.
Cassandra_Lionheart takes off the cute armor portion off, and the breastplate looks tight again on her shoulders
Trombe: "Automatic repair mechanisms invoked."
[OOC] Pak: Male mithra are genetically shorter and shota-er
Trombe: "Unable to deactivate."
[OOC] Riia: Sure, but Pak still triggers Riia's "little boy" sensors.
Pak glares up at Riia. "What? Do you wanna read them instead?"
ORN IM's disruption circle to interfere as he tries to integrate himself to the repair system instead; this may be an easier route, maybe
Riia tilts her head, thinking.
Pak: "I was trying to figure out if Juan was among those…"
Riia wonders how hard it would be to build a firestarter…
Cassandra Lionheart: "Eric…how many times did you do this today for me?"
The repair systems immediately eject ORN this time.
Pak: "…Well, and to try and learn about how to deal with such situations."
ORN: "Hm…"
Riia ruffles Pak's hair
Eric Lionheart: "Too many."
ORN tries again, this time without applying any interference from disruption abilities
Riia gives him a pat on the back and leads him away from the pronchamber.
Eric_Lionheart armor adjusts.
Pak vanishes in a poof of teleportation magic, annoyed.
Cassandra_Lionheart nods "One more time please? I think I should talk to Mingnon next time."
ORN: "These repair systems are extremely aggressive but non-assimilating. Something can be learned, Trombe Unit."
[OOC] Riia: Clearly I'm gonna have to take a harder stance on that porn.
ORN finds the best that can be achieved - for now - is installing into Trombe's frame, letting Trombe move about and freeing ORN to act as a turret.
[OOC] Pak: Nah, he's just gonna hide it someplace for now so that Riia doesn't burn it.
[OOC] ORN: riia's gonna have to replace it then so she can 'teach him' "good manners"? ;p
Felicia looks around at what scenery there may be.
[OOC] Pak: After all, Porn Mag is a secret item!
ORN: "Outright combination impossible at this time. This Unit shall attempt exoskeletal functions"
[OOC] Pak: And it might be useful for distracting pirates.
Cassandra Lionheart: "Eric, be careful not to undo it all the way okay? This breaastplate, has been prone to falling apart at the seems."
Eric Lionheart: "You should replace it with a new set sized for you instead."
Felicia finds a vast, open expanse of blue. The party has, by now, sailed all night and most of the day - sleeping or napping somewhere in there.
Eric_Lionheart keeps working.
Sunset again approaches, and still the boat sails.
[OOC] Riia: I don't suppose there are any alchemy components aboard?
[OOC] WC GM: Nope. Not unless you count the food and water.
Cassandra Lionheart: "It was sized for me….A year ago."
[OOC] Riia: Rats. Well, I could try my hand at cooking…
Felicia smiles dreamily.
ORN tries to install as leg exo-armor and head-mounted lancer whitecannon then, and tries that for a time.
As Pak stashes the porn, one picture in particular catches his eye. A softer one - no naughty bits here - and yet there is something about him…
[OOC] WC GM: http:/‘`/``EC-MerHunk.jpg
Pak …!
Pak: "Hey… hmm…"
Pak: "This one’s a bit odd."
No name on this picture. Could be Juan, could be someone else.
ORN: "Groupmembers may be interested in current results. Calling them may be beneficial at this time."
Pak decides to stash the picture.
Pak er, on his person.
Pak: "I'll keep this around and ask people about him."
ORN: "Open beak, attempt converting Tuya-class munition with whitecannon function."
Pak hides the rest and spends the rest of the day around the kitchen.
Pak: "Hungryyy~"
Riia is cooking…
Cassandra_Lionheart sneezes hard.
Pak: "Oh!~"
Pak: "Do you want help?"
Pak has a small amount of Cooking skill.
Anyone checking the map can see that the party is headed towards the "middle" of the northern continent map - the L-intersection of the tunnels with the very small island.
[OOC] Sakha: I'd take Porn Mag if it gave me a significant MAG boost >_>
[OOC] Pak: ?
[OOC] Riia: Is there enough special stuff to make cooking special foods?
[OOC] ORN: Porn: +2 mag
[OOC] Riia: Or is this just passing time?
[OOC] Eric Lionheart: BRB.
Felicia looks around for Trombe. Maybe she *will* let him steer for awhile >_>;
Riia putters around the kitchen with Pak
Pak helps putter
Riia spots some flour, some sugar, some eggs…
Riia and Pak eventually manage to dig up some special materials suitable for cooking - 48 tier 6 crafting points' worth.
ORN: "Please temporarily dismount transport. This Unit would recommend whitecannon and exo-self testing for a moment. It may also allow for entertainment."
[OOC] Riia: Eeeexcellent.
Felicia easily finds Trombe, standing still as ORN attempts modifications. The situation reminds Felicia of Mignon Rose and someone she was upgrading the armor of.
ORN: "The Quiet one may also know of the Trombe Unit's autorepair systems. Asking later would be beneficial"
Cassandra_Lionheart moves around in her armor "Okay Eric, you got. Just as long as the armor doesn't fall apart in battle."
Pak oohs. "Wanna see if we can make anything? :3"
[OOC] WC GM: Riia & Pak can try assembling cooking stuff. Declare what you're making.
[OOC] WC GM: Enough time's passed to use all 48 points.
[OOC] Pak: Umm… what can we make at tier 6?
[OOC] Hector: Co-Op Synthesis!
[OOC] WC GM: 2 Power Up or Magic Up meals.
Felicia sweatdrops.
ORN: "Felicia: What are your current impressions on Full-Armor Trombe combination?"
[OOC] WC GM: Or 3 Agility or Speed Up meals.
[OOC] WC GM: And yes, for each attempt, both Pak & Riia can attempt, getting a bonus from working together.)
[OOC] Eric Lionheart: Back.
[OOC] Riia: Riia discusses with Pak - somehow - a magic-up Meal and a Power-Up Meal
Pak agrees with whatever Riia tries to say.
Cassandra_Lionheart hugs Eric, and opens the door for him
[OOC] Riia: 1 each power-up and magic-up meal it is…
Eric_Lionheart blinks at Cassie.
[OOC] WC GM: Alright. Roll it - 2 Cooking attempts each. Tell me if you pass/fail and by how much.
Pak rolled 1d100 and got 44 for a total of 44
Pak rolled 1d100 and got 47 for a total of 47
[OOC] WC GM: I'll add in the modifiers.
[OOC] Pak: Pass by 6, and then pass by 3
Felicia: "Seems plausible… but is it really neccessary?"
Riia rolled 1d100 and got 22 ( Total: 22 )
Riia rolled 1d100 and got 100 ( Total: 100 ) **
[OOC] Riia: Pass by 26, fail utterly
The Power-Up meal comes out great! The Magic-Up…huh, those ingredients must have been defective. Guess the pirates had not much use for magic.
[OOC] Riia: Shoot.
Hector is sitting in his captain's quarters, wearing a captain's hat and trying to look all important and stuff.
This may be reinforced by the pirate on board having been in a pattern of waking up, wandering around for a bit, inevitably seeing Riia again, and fainting. This has happened at least 6 times during the trip.
Riia rolls her eyes at the pirate
Riia carefully wraps up the food for travel.
Pak mmphs.
ORN tries firing into the sky and ranging it
[OOC] WC GM: Note that for one person, there was a -10 modifier for making the meals.
ORN's shot is shot out of the air!
Pak: "Well, we have the Power up Meal… what should we call it?"
Riia: ""
Pak: "…?"
The sun has gone down, but ORN sees this by moonlight.
Felicia perks. "Uh oh."
ORN: "… Trouble."
On the horizon is a large fleet of ships.
Pak: "I thought I heard a shot outside-"
Eric Lionheart: "…"
They are headed for the group.
Felicia: "…Quite. Alert the others."
Hector's radio crackles.
Pak heads up onto deck.
Riia follows Pak, unslinging rifle.
Hector takes it out of his pocket.
Aerie: "Hey! Are you receiving?"
Hector: "That I am. What's up?"
ORN: "Trombe Unit. Estimated combat stability?"
Aerie: "I thought my readings were off, but - it looks like you're heading right at the center of Mer's power."
Hector: "…oh, boy. That's probably not good."
Pak: "O-oh…"
Pak: "Wow, there's a lot of ships. x.x;"
Riia blanches, as much as a furry creature can
Trombe: "Unknown capability. Suggest superior performance with proven forms."
Felicia: "Mmm."
Hector goes up on deck. "Felicia, full reverse! We're heading straight into the eye of the storm, and that's not at all a good thing!"
Felicia points.
Pak: "Hector! Boats!"
Felicia: "Kinda late there."
Cassandra_Lionheart emerges onto the deck and blinks "Storm?"
Riia enhoods
Eric Lionheart: "…Oh boy."
Aerie: "I can't do much to support you from here, but I'll see if I can at least guide the other bunch of ships towards you."
Hector: "Yeah, yeah. Aerie said so."
*holds up the radio*
ORN nods and detatches, chunks tumbling onto the deck
Hector: "Wait. TOWARDS us?"
Hector: "Wouldn't a bunch of ships of Mer's followers want us deader than dead?"
ORN takes a few moments to reform, and shatters his right arm open, ready
Aerie: "The ones in the southern hemisphere. Those are your friends, right?"
Hector: "Yes, those are fine."
Aerie: "They'll take a while to arrive."
Felicia rubs her chin. "Also, the *eye* of the storm is usually the safest spot."
[OOC] Hector: We're level 36. Shouldn't we be ending the chapter at, um…40?
[OOC] WC GM: Yes. What, you think this is the end of the chapter? :P
[OOC] Riia: Sure, but that doesn't mean this is the final confrontation with Mer.
Pak: "Kyaah…"
[OOC] Hector: I'm just saying.
[OOC] Julian: Or, that means you're in for a very, very long combat ._>
[OOC] Riia: After all, you guys fought Milf twice, and ran around with Pyr for half the chapter.
[OOC] Hector: However, if this is like a Metal Hero plotline, we get our asses kicked, then run off for our midseason upgrade and some training, and THEN we go beat the shit out of Mer.
[OOC] ORN: of course there's 9 spirits and 8 chapters so we're likely to run into two SOMETIME ;p
[OOC] Hector: I almost said "Meer". Which would be just as good.
[OOC] Riia: Plu and Min
Felicia at least attempts to steer the vessel from a head-on collision with the other boats.
[OOC] ORN: Riia: that's what he WANTS us to think
[OOC] Riia: =o
[OOC] Eric Lionheart: Maybe there's a hidden chapter to unlock!
[OOC] Riia: /me eyes WC suspiciously
Pak: "Where are we headed, again…?"
Pak sweatdrops. "All those boats- wait!"
Avoiding collision is not hard. It still takes a bit of time to pull alongside the fleet, though.
Pak looks up at their flag.
[OOC] Riia: ORN: here's how it will work. At the end of chapter 8, Grav shows up to gloat, then we kill him.
[OOC] Pak: We still look like a pirate ship, right?
The biggest ship in the fleet heads right towards the party. The other ships seem to be taking up a surrounding position.
[OOC] Riia: This is Final Fantasy, after all.
Pak: "…Err…'
Pak feels cornered.
[OOC] ORN: at which point the moon reveals itself to have been a showgirl all along, and we then take out the neighboring evil galaxy.
[OOC] Hector: This is FF, not Wild Arms.
Felicia pats Pak. "Stay calm."
[OOC] Hector: Wild Arms is about evil parallel univrses and shit.
[OOC] ORN: in fact, riia turns out to be a micloned version of the MOON itself!
The ship still looks like a pirate ship.
[OOC] Riia: Hector; if this was Wild Arms, I'd say that we finish chapter 8 and find out that there are actually 16 chapters.
The pirate is just laughing to herself.
Pak: "Uhh…"
ORN gonna fire at the idiot that's just standing there laughing
Pak: "What fleet is this, miss Pirate? n.n;"
ORN easily headshots her.
Hector quickly puts the radio away.
[OOC] Pak: …
Pak: "ACK!"
The body falls overboard.
Pak: "Orn! T_T"
[OOC] Riia: Gonna not does!
Pak: "I was TALKING to her!"
Eric Lionheart: "…"
Pak kicks him in the shin in frustration.
Cassandra_Lionheart looks "Noo!"
Felicia: "…"
Eric Lionheart: "ORN."
Felicia sighs.
Pak: "Mean! Stupid! Violent!"
ORN: "They're trying to annihilate this ship."
Hector: "That's some nice shooting, I admit."
Pak: "…"
Pak: "ORN."
Pak: "You shot the Pirate on OUR ship."
Pak: "Not their's."
[OOC] ORN: thought you were talking about on the ship approaching us.
[OOC] Pak: No.
[OOC] Pak: NO.
[OOC] Eric Lionheart: …Bloody idiot.
The large ship soon approaches close enough to make out the people on its railing, far above.
[OOC] Riia: When did she wake back up?
[OOC] ORN: she was unconcious. Riia's on deck. it can't have been ours.
[OOC] WC GM: It was.
[OOC] Pak: She woke back up.
[OOC] Riia: ORN- "the pirate," not "one of the pirates"
[OOC] Pak: She'd been waking back up periodically.
Most of those on the large ship wear bandanas. Only one wears a hat - obviously the captain.
PirateCaptain: "Ahoy down there!"
Pak: "Uh… ahoy!"
Felicia facepalms. "You have got to learn not to shoot first and ask questions later…"
Pak waves meekly.
Eric Lionheart: "Greetings!"
Felicia adjusts her hat. "…Avast?"
PirateCaptain: "Well this is interesting. When I sent my messengers out, I expected them to come back."
Eric_Lionheart does not look pleased, but at least greets the pirate in a friendly manner. He will talk with ORN later.
Pak: "Um…"
PirateCaptain: "Are you the ones Mer's been going all sideways about?"
Pak: "…P…probably."
Eric Lionheart: "Don't know for a fact, but it's a possiblity."
ORN: "…"
PirateCaptain: "The name's Maria. And from what my blood's telling me, Mer wants you deader than dead. Even the cutie."
She winks at Pak.
Pak: "…"
Eric Lionheart: "No need for violence, though."
Pak whines. ._.
Sakha: "It won't happen though, anyone that tries will die first, no problem."
Pak knew this was a bad idea!
Riia quietly rolls her eyes at Eric, but nods at Sakha
ORN: "…"
Sakha speaks casually without looking up.
Hector: "I'm a bit too busy to die right now. I just got my own ship. No way I'm gonna die before I've seen the world, that's for damnably sure."
Pak has never felt so many lusty eyes on him at once, as when he notices the various and countless crewmembers looking at him.
ORN stares at eric, waiting for "the talking" to do something
Pak: "…"
Felicia: "…Your ship?"
Felicia: "…"
Pak: "…Can't… kyaah…"
Eric Lionheart: "I'm sure we can come to a acceptable agreement that will prevent a unneeded battle."
Riia quietly sidles oven to try and keep Pak out of view
Felicia assists Riia.
Hector: "Hey, I'm the captain! It's my ship!"
Maria: "Sure. If you want to kill yourselves and save us the effort, go right ahead. Mer ain't gonna let it be otherwise, though."
Riia sighs and lowers hood, then
[OOC] WC GM: Negotiation impossible.
Pak: ";_;"
Ahiru: "I tought that was already made apparent Eric…"
Pak: "B…but… but…"
[OOC] Riia: Eric forgot about the frogs, either deliberately or by accident.
Maria: "WELL, now. A Viera."
Riia checks gun
Cassandra_Lionheart looks at Maria "Well, Mer wants us dead, but do you want to really kill us? I want to ask you about the fighting style you pirates have? It is the same as mine!"
Felicia stares blankly at Hector. "Sure you are, kid. Sure you are."
Maria: "Is it true that you're the infamous devils from the new moon sent here to steal our men?"
[OOC] Eric Lionheart: Wonder why I picked Mediator for a subjob…
Riia snickers at Maria's comment
Pak: "…"
ORN: "Pirates want This Group dead. And neutrals. And friendlies. The only talk they enjoy is taunting. It is better to fire while they gloat or transform into various outfits than to wait for them to attack, when they are already known hostile factors. The one behind you was simply awaiting a backstab opportunity, having no reason to maintain loyalty if her friends are there and you are dead."
Felicia: "…Wait what?"
[OOC] Riia: Entrust, that's why
[OOC] Felicia: And to give me critical up.
Eric Lionheart: "ORN, you will not open fire at all until there is no other option…"
ORN levels and glares at the pirate
Riia raises a hand up and makes a "gimme" gesture
[OOC] Ahiru: Where is orn getting his references from?
ORN: "Other options were exhausted the first time they yelled Yarr, and mer's condition confirmed this."
Maria: "Perhaps. But I'm a reasonable sort, and I would like to avoid needless bloodshed. So tell you what."
Pak: "Oh?"
Pak listens.
ORN: "Suicide is not an option on this side."
Pak: "She already suggested that."
Maria: "I could have you chop through my crew, making a beeline for me, maybe wearing you down first. But somehow I don't think that'd get anything but a bunch of my crew dead and you with their weapons and gear - or maybe you'd pull some kinda trick."
[OOC] Riia: Rats, was hoping they'd be afraid enough of the demon to give her Juan, fat chance tho.
Pak: "We're pretty strong…"
Maria pulls out her sword. "So let's just cut to the chase, shall we?"
Pak: "I'd rather not kill other Mithra unless necessary."
Pak: "…!"
Eric Lionheart: "…We do not need to fight."
Cassandra Lionheart: "Maria! Fight me!
Maria leaps down at the party. //"Y'ARRR!"
