EC Session 5.8

Evening, Merch 1 Pluday. //
The group's boat is surrounded by the pirate fleet.
Pak feels self-concious. x_x
Including the flagship - a really, really big ship.
Many pirates look at the crew as Maria, their leader, leaps down onto the boat.
Her momentum is such that the boat rocks quite a bit on landing.
Hector cracks his knuckles. "You're saving us a lotta trouble by fightin' us directly."
Hector: "S'pose I should thank ya…so I'll thank ya with my foot up yer ass!"
Maria: "Before we begin - I saw you off me crewmate. Don' blame her - she was jus' followin' orders if she found ye."
Maria: "Leading you into our trap."
Cassandra_Lionheart shrugs her shoulders
[OOC] Riia: Yay, peace between Eric and ORN
Pak: "Hm."
ORN: "Following orders is no excuse. The blame for her actions thus lies with her and the one giving these orders."
ORN: "You shall suffer a similar, if slower, fate."
Eric Lionheart: "Hmph."
Pak: "She's probably too good to be headshotted so easy."
Cassandra Lionheart: "I don't care. She is in my way. I'll plow through her!"
Riia massages her ears for a second, then raises her rifle
ORN: "This Unit DID mention hers would likely be slower"
ORN raises battle-arm and surfaces another round
Maria: "With that settle-"
Cassandra Lionheart: "I don't know why we are just standing here? LEt's go and show her we trapped her this time!"
Six thumps behind Maria announce the arrival of six of her crew.
Pak: "…Hey…"
Maria, a bit wide-eyed, turns around and GLARES at them.
Riia throws off a slanted grin
Maria points back to the flagship deck. "Y'ARRRR!"
The crew point to the party. "Y'arr?"
Pak: "…Were they not listening?"
Felicia: "…"
Riia blinks a bit, cocks her head at Maria, then looks a bit sad
Cassandra Lionheart: "I think not."
Maria slumps, her tail twitching in annoyance. "Y'arr." She slaps her forehead.
[OOC] Riia: So Maria is in the same position as Pyrtyr…
[OOC] ORN: well, technically yes. she's standing and about to be whacked
Cassandra Lionheart: "um, if you don't want them to interfere, make a challenge to us then? That may work?"
*shrugs her shoulders again*
[OOC] Riia: That's not what I meant, and given the chapter length, it's too bad for her that what she's about to do isn't gonna cut it.
ORN: "Leave them. They obviously appear to lack sufficient confidence in their leader to allow her to face This Group on her own merits."
Maria growls at that.
Riia shakes her head and reaches up to put a hand on ORN's shoulder
Hefting one of her crew, she throws the pirate at ORN!

[OOC] Hector: And then she takes 200% damage and is berserked.
[OOC] Pak: Or buzzed
[OOC] ORN: but then that usually means she needs a phoenix down ^^:
Eric_Lionheart pulls out his staff, and starts to spin it around rapidly. Transparent bubbles surround the party then vanish. (Null Element:Water to party)
[OOC] Hector: Does this last until dispelled, or does it only last until someone's hit with a water attack, like the barriers in Digital Devil Saga?
Blue Blade A sees the spell forming, tries to slice to intercept - just barely fails. Still slices at Eric, though.

Pak: "…Nah, ORN would get totally smashed."
[OOC] ORN: ???
Pak looked like he was planning something, but uses Status Reels instead.
Eric Lionheart: "Thanks, Hector."
[OOC] ORN: ORN not mind minor damage if its more to the other side
[OOC] Pak: Pak was gonna, er, 'aggro' the entire enemy group towards him and get ORN to Cover him >_>;

[OOC] ORN: negative statuses so useless ^^;
[OOC] Felicia: Negative Non Toxin/Weak
The enemies are indeed Cursed.

[OOC] Felicia: oh hay
[OOC] Pak: The best statuses in the game are Transform, because NOONE REMEMBERS THEM >:3
[OOC] Hector: Wow. They…can't use slow/fast abilities. Still can use magic, items, and attack, though.
[OOC] ORN: pak basically just disabled sentinel/cover ^^;
[OOC] Pak: Hector- they use sword abilities like Cassie.
[OOC] Pak: If I used this on Cassie she couldn't use ANY of her abilities.
[OOC] Hector: I figured that. So now that's one less headache for us, y'know.
Maria smiles. "Not bad, not bad." She flicks her sword - water comes off. "My blade is useless against you, and you have already stopped most of our techniques. But we're still not helpless."
Pak: "Well, it'd be boring if that was true… n.n;"
[OOC] Cassandra Lionheart: Well I'll be damned…PAK!!!

Pak finds his mind filled with romantic thoughts. He is Charmed(4) by Maria!
[OOC] ORN: someone else do it. This Unit has work to do
Pak wobbles towards the other side, blushing. "Nyan…"
Pak sits at Maria's feet.
Cassandra Lionheart: "Oh my word!"
ORN shatters his rear stablisers with a stroke of lightning, and sends the pieces hovering high above the battlefield for a moment, spinning and accumulating charge
Hector: "Uh-oh. Cassie, slap him out of it! I don't care if he bleeds a little, I don't want him doing to us what he did to them!"
Maria pets Pak.
ORN: "Lesser Selves. Fire"
Cassandra_Lionheart nods

The mithra YELP! Yes, they are still weak to that - even Maria.
ORN returns the mass to himself, and reforms

ORN levels his battle-arm, awash in bright white glow, at the pirate
[OOC] Hector: 27-8=19, 19 goes off before Sakha gets a chance to act, assuming like a half-second, right?
[OOC] WC GM: Init 19. You can go in either order if you want.
[OOC] ORN: if sakha wants to go first I don't mind. go ahead.
[OOC] Hector: Well, it works like that in FF sometimes, due to programming priority.
[OOC] Ahiru: he got the higher roll so…
[OOC] WC GM: Init 19 is ORN, Sakha, Cassandra, Riia - and then Maria.
[OOC] Ahiru: I hope it doesn't kill her… I want Sakha with the final blow
ORN fires a brilliant pearly lance of energy through Maria, shattering the tips of his rails in the process

[OOC] ORN: boom ^^;
[OOC] Sakha: Oh that is baaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaad
[OOC] Riia: So 708 damage
[OOC] Sakha: If that is the final blow…
Between the series of blows, Maria's sword is knocked from her hand. It is sent skittering across the deck, and falls into the sea with a small plop.
Maria is on one knee, but still glares at the party.
Pak: "You're the one who wanted to cut to the chase~"
Cassandra Lionheart: "Where did you learn to fight like that?"
Ahiru is alert with her pendant
ORN: "This Unit did warn that these things are slower. Toughness being the reason."
Hector 's whip discharges the lightning harmlessly.
Maria GRINS, and runs at Hector!
WC GM rolled 1d100 and got 44 ( Total: 44 )

Pak: "What… what'd she just do?"
[OOC] WC GM: Yep.
Felicia: "…Huh."
[OOC] Hector: Wait, is the fight over?
It seems - now that you review it afterwards - Maria pulled most of Hector's blood straight out of him and into her.
[OOC] WC GM: Nope, still going. Eric's turn.
Pak: "…Ow!"
[OOC] Hector: Nevermind the lightning discharge.
[OOC] WC GM: If I may reccomend healing?
[OOC] Hector: I'm still charging, unless that disrupted me.
ORN: "Organic Assimilation… … The… other way around…? Interesting…"
Cassandra_Lionheart glares at Maria "Cheater!"
[OOC] Ahiru: premature discharge
[OOC] Pak: Did you get reraised?
[OOC] ORN: don't worry, she's sure it happens to a lot of humes?
[OOC] Pak: If so, it probably got discharged.
[OOC] Hector: Waiting for the WORD OF GOD.
[OOC] WC GM: Near-Fatal Attack.
[OOC] WC GM: Didn't invoke Reraise.
Eric_Lionheart heals Hector back up rather quickly. (Cura)
[OOC] Pak: Okay, then you're still charged.
[OOC] Hector: USE AN X-POT. D:
[OOC] Hector: Or let me use my own. D:
[OOC] Pak: We'll be fine.
[OOC] Felicia: Dont waste one if you dont have to :p not like there are other people to hit you after her.
[OOC] Pak: Just get revenge for that~!
Pak: "She's still weak…"

Hector lands with a dramatic strike. "THUNDER…CRASH!"

Cassandra_Lionheart blinks and looks at Hector.
[OOC] Riia: Riia thinks Hector talks too much in battle.
[OOC] Pak: He likes hotblood
[OOC] WC GM: Pak!
[OOC] Hector: I make up for Riia's lack of dialogue. Also I play too much SRW and it spills over.
[OOC] Riia: Mind you, this is why Riia never talks EVER.
Pak gyuus! "T_T; N-not fair, draining his life back!"
Cassandra Lionheart: "Thunder Crash??? Your more like a Ragin storm there."
[OOC] Riia: A hundred of years of battle, combined with not talking in battle, very hard on the vocal cords.

A drop of soapy water out of nowhere flicks Pak between the eyes in seming response.
[OOC] Cassandra Lionheart: brb
Pak ack!
A greenish black fog envelops Felicia's weapon, a chilling wind filling the air. She strikes at Maria, attempting to wither her soul!

[OOC] Pak: Actually, if YOU'RE a zombie you can still drain, I think.
[OOC] Pak: But if someone drains FROM you, you get healed.
[OOC] Hector: Didn't work for me in FF6.
Ahiru charges in with another snap at the Mithra!
[OOC] Hector: I had Shadow zombied and cast drain and he LOST HP.
Ahiru rolled 3d8+256,175% and got 5, 4, 4 for a total of 470.75
Maria's eyes widen as the snap envelopes her.
Maria struggles to pull away - but the her efforts are in vain. Ahiru's magic consumes her whole.
[OOC] Hector: PWNED.
When it fades, another socket in Ahiru's pendant glows - half full.
WC GM rolled 7d100 and got 21, 4, 70, 27, 11, 85, 35 ( Total: 253 )
Pak: "…HALF full?"
Pak looks. "That wasn't all of her?"
Ahiru looks at it an goes ?
Felicia: "…There's more, I guess?"
Pak: "…Anyway…"
Pak: "Before we worry about that…"
Cassandra Lionheart: "So..Mer has another half out there."
Pak grabs Maria's hat.
Pak: "We need to deal with these pirates!"
ORN starts accumulating charge across his body, and nods at Pak
Hector leans over the edge of the boat and coughs out some blood. No chunks, at least.
Eric Lionheart: "We will try a peaceful route before the violent one."
Sakha lightnings Maria once more for good measure and nabs the hat from Pak.
1 Hyper Ether, 2 Phoenix Downs, 2 Hi-Potions, 1 Water Gem, and 1 Falchion remain on deck, dropped by the defeated pirates.
Cassandra Lionheart: "Yeah..Enough blood was spilled, and taken!:
Hector grabs the other Falchion!
[OOC] Hector: Money. :3
Cassandra_Lionheart looks at Hector and blinks
Pak kyah! "Hey! I wanted to be captain! ;_;"
As does 3323 Gil each.
ORN: "Very well. The choice is theirs. The consequences… ours to decide."
Pak sighs and grabs the 2 hi-pots.
Eric Lionheart: "Not if they opt for a peaceful route."
[OOC] WC GM: 9014 XP each too.
Cassandra_Lionheart takes the 2 PD's
ORN: "The peaceful route, also holds its own consequences."
Pak: "Yup."
Sakha: "You're not captain Material."
She walks to the railing putting on the hat. "Listen up! I summon lightning, can call the rain and control the winds. We've beaten your captain, your avatar, and you can either follow us or jump into the sea!"
Cassandra Lionheart: "I just want to know how these guys have the same fighting style as I do!"
ORN stands right behind sakha, sparkles, and slowly points out;
Pak: "'Cause you learned from a Pirate."
The pirates start dropping iron balls.
ORN: "The Sea, will also be filled with lightning."
Hector: "When Sakha wants to take control, it's best if you just let her."
The first one put a hole in the boat.
Pak ack?!
ORN: "But it comes with free marine predators."
[OOC] Hector: OUR boat?
So does the second one.
Cassandra Lionheart: "I'll take that as a no guys."
[OOC] WC GM: Your boat.
Felicia: "Oh yeah. That's working real well."
[OOC] Riia: Fight! Fight! Fight!
[OOC] ORN: no, they're committing suicide… … and…. taking…. our loot with it >.<
Hector: "Trombe!"
Sakha summons lightning on the first one to drop the iron ball.
Trombe: "ORN - request assimilation for leg boost. Request all others board."
Riia hops on
[OOC] Sakha: Oh god I'm power tripping.
Cassandra_Lionheart hops onto Trombe
Pak climbs up too.
The first dropper drops - right through the hole she made. She is soon replaced.
Hector gets on Trombe. "Sakha! Get up here, please!"
Felicia shakes her head, getting up onto Trombe.
ORN nods
Hector: "You can shoot lightning while you're on somethin' that's not about to take on way more water than it c'n handle!"
ORN: "All units, Board the Trombe Unit. Temporary Self-destruct sequence initiated"
Eric Lionheart: "…"
Cassandra Lionheart: "Well, there goes reason! Bust them up?"
ORN kneels as arcs of lightning form, multiply and increase across his body
The boat soon resembles Mr. Swiss's cheese.
ORN: "Looting before sinking is recommended. This Unit… will be busy"
ORN explodes, the shards striking Trombe directly
Pak is sitting on Trombe. Will perform emergency teleports to grab people if necessary.
Hector rides Trombe over to Sakha, and grabs her, pulling her off the sinking ship and onto Trombe.
[OOC] Pak: Also, what's ORN doing?
The only loot not yet salvaged is the Hyper Ether and the Water Gem.
At least, of the loot that can be salvaged immediately.
ORN will exo-leg first, and then focus on the head regions for sensory and whitecannon formation once we're underway
Pak had gathered up the gold and stuff…
Sakha: "Hey! I'm showing them who's boss!"
[OOC] ORN: sakha: and they're all quitting over it ^^;;;
Pak sighs and grabs the water gem and hyper ether too.
Felicia: "It doesnt work when they don't care."
Sakha seethes.
Hector: "Not to mention that the ship's about to sink."
With Trombe's legs fortified by ORN, the mechanical bird JUMPS…
Hector: "You'll thank me later."
…up the party goes, right up the tall wall of the ship and beyond…
…the massive ship begins to shrink a bit in the distance…
…but even this massive a jump has its apex. Gravity wins out, and the party begins to descend again.
ORN: "Trombe Unit. Initiate auxilary propulsion and attenuate landings. Joint formation incomplete for several more moments."
Pak: "…I can help!"
Pak IMs Gravity to slow their fall, however slightly
Trombe: "Attempting maximum transfer of kinetic energy to hostile vessel."
Pak: "…Oh."
[OOC] WC GM: Pak: MAG check
Pak rolled 1d100 and got 4 for a total of 4
Pak: "Do you need it HEAVIER, then? >:3 I can do that, too!"
Pak remembers in time that Gravity increases, not decreases, gravity.
ORN: "Offensive methods approved."
Pak: "Okay! GRAVITY UP!"
Trombe: "Suggested action would increase energy to transfer."
The fall is faster than the ascent.
Hector blinks.
ORN IM's Reis wind to keep self solid after the impact
Hector: "Was that actually the best idea?"
Pak: "…I dunno."
Pak: "It's all robot speak. They say faster, I'll give 'em faster!"
Hector: "You gotta think before you act, kid! You and your sister kinda have that same problem."
Trombe lands - through one, two, three decks, sending a score of pirates overboard, some of them through the walls of the lower decks.
Felicia blinks.
Cassandra Lionheart: "Ach!"
The remaining pirates hesitate a bit.
Riia looks for a Juan
Eric Lionheart: "…Now will you try a peaceful route, pirates?"
ORN: "Most Excellent. This Unit would strongly recommend arming the Trombe Unit with talon-upgrades to allow this on a more regular basis. Trombe Unit appears to be a natural at unfriendly landing methods"
Trombe: "Trombe unit adapted methods by observing present company."
ORN , or at least, the helm atop the Trombe Unit's head, sparkles
Cassandra_Lionheart looks at ORN "Your a bad influence to machine-kind."
ORN: "This Unit worried its teaching methods may not be very effective. Spreading understanding of techniques will prove possible in the future. This bodes well."
Pak holds up his picture of maybe-Juan and looks at surrounding pirates for comparison.
There is enough debris that the normal access paths to where you landed are blocked. Pirates could jump in from above, but from the fact that none are soon visible, and the sounds of chopping at the far side of the collapsed wood, it appears they would prefer not to mimic Trombe's entrance.
The pirates that were seen, however, were all female. No Juan there.
Pak: "So, what do we do now…?"
Cassandra Lionheart: "So..Can we FINALLY talk?"
Eric Lionheart: "We'll try negotations first."
ORN: "These ships are lightly equipped with at least moderate amounts of looted valuables."
Cassandra_Lionheart looks at Eric "Good idea." *mumbles8 "I just asked that.."
Hector: "Now that we have a few free seconds, Eric, wouldja throw one more a'those healin' spells on me?"
[OOC] Riia: Is this Maria's ship?
[OOC] WC GM: This was Maria's ship, yes.
ORN: "With Sakha's permission, of course, these should likely at least partially be reassigned to This Group."
ORN: "It is only appropriate for their old captain's valuables to now be the new one's."
Riia looks at the group, points at Pak, then sweeps her hand around the ship - she thinks you should look for the pirates' man.
[OOC] Riia: thra
ORN tries not to be too loud resonating Trombe for speech
Eric_Lionheart Curas Hector.
Eric Lionheart rolled 3d8+228 and got 2, 2, 8 for a total of 240
Cassandra Lionheart: "Okay…Riia I think want us to sweep the ship for this Juan guy."
Felicia hpmhs. "Somehow I doubt we'll get very far, given her leadership."
[OOC] Hector: Full limit, almost full HP. HOORAY.
Pak nods.
Pak: "I'll go out for recon!"
Pak: "One moment, okay?"
Pak: "I'll be right back."
Cassandra_Lionheart hops off Trombe and begins to look around
Pak disappears with a BAMF, teleporting around
Felicia looks around the immediate area.
Riia reaches out for Pak, futiley
Hector scratches his nose.
Sakha drops the hat huffily and starts looking through the ship.
Hector catches the hat and puts it on.
[OOC] WC GM: Pak: MAG check.
Riia jacks a round in the chamber and looks at where the chopping noises are loudes
[OOC] Riia: Loudest
Hector: "Guess that means I'm captain now."

Pak almost teleports into the middle of some pirates, but manages to avoid.
Everyone else finds rubble - except for Sakha, who finds one of the holes in the wall and falls through!
Hector looks through the hole that Sakha fell through, hoping she didn't land in the water.
Eric Lionheart: "…"
Cassandra Lionheart: "Well I'm guessing we crashed the wrong ship."
There is nothing else for Sakha to land in.
Sakha eeks! shortly and drops.
[OOC] Sakha: So I'm in the water?
A piece of flotsam is soon thrust in front of Sakha. "Grab on!"
[OOC] WC GM: Yep.
Sakha nabs and says huffily. "I can swim you know!"
Hector is looking down and wonders what's attached to what Sakha's grabbing onto.
?: "I would hope so. But swimming is not the issue."
Hector sees a mithra - one that looks much like Pak's picture - on the other end of it.
Sakha: "And what exactly IS?"
She turns to see her rescuer.
Hector also notices that, while there should be pirates all over, none others are to be seen.
The rest of the party hears the chopping stop.
Cassandra Lionheart: "Sakha, no worries, I think Juan found us."
Pak sees the pirates reverse course and head for life boats.
Hector: "Juan? I'll be damned."
Juan: "Just the displeasure of Mer."
He points to the horizon.
Riia makes sure she's safely on Trombe
Sakha lays eyes on Juan and blushes.
Pak ahas.
Pak heads back.
Pak: "Hey, guys!"
Sakha: "I'm not afraid of spirits."
Eric Lionheart: "…"
ORN still armoring Trombe ^^;;
Pak: "The pirates are fleeing this ship. Looks like we sank it pretty good~"
[OOC] Hector: Is it possible to get out of the hole and climb down to where Sakha and Juan are?
Cassandra_Lionheart waves "Ahoy Juan. Want a lift up here?"
Riia claps to get them on the metal chocobo so that it can jump and not be crushed by a tsunami
Juan: "It is not the spirit I am worried about. It is the tsunami."
Cassandra_Lionheart sees the tsunami, and books it for Trombe!
Pak climbs on. "What's up, Riia?"
The hole will need a bit of widening to safely traverse, but this can be easily done.
Pak: "Hey, where's Sakha?"
Riia makes a very, very high wave motion
The horizon swells a bit, in a small area.
Hector turns around and thumbs the hole. "Riia, couldja blast this to make it a little ibgger?"
Sakha: "… I can manage…"
She says stubbornly.
Riia nods and shoots it up a bit
Hector: "Thanks.
Hector: "
Pak blinks. "Hector! What are you doing?"
Riia blinks at Pak
ORN charges up the beak
Riia easily widens the space. It is soon big enough for Trombe to pass through!
Hector says nothing, and instead goes through the hole and climbs down to where Sakha's landed.
[OOC] Riia: Oh, yeah, baby, check that precision shooting!
Pak sweatdrops. "Hey, don't leave! We're about to get moving!"
Juan: "If you could, please. I am afraid I am in no shape to do anything."
Hector brushes himself off as he confronts Juan and Sakha.
Hector finds nothing to climb on, unless he is lowering a rope or climbing down the side of the ship.
Sakha blushes some more and casts float on the two of them to bring them above the water's surface.
Pak steers Trombe out after Hector once everyone besides Sakha and Hector is on board.
[OOC] Hector: Side of the ship. I AM A NINJA.
[OOC] Hector: 14 Agi/Spd could probably get me the required dexterity to do so.
[OOC] Hector: Also powered by jealousy.
As Juan emerges from the water, Sakha can see what Juan meant - his body is covered by scars, though those should be easy to heal. Reddish spots on his wrists and ankles indicate one who has been chained up for a while.
Riia claps to try to get their attention, then waves "up, up!"
Riia tries to find some rope or something
Trombe leaps out of the hole, and lands on the water next to Hector.
Trombe seems to be treating the sea as solid ground.
Pak looks down. "…! O_O"
[OOC] Riia: Or that works.
Hector lands on Trombe.
Pak: "You! It's that Juan guy!"
Riia blinks
Hector sighs. "Alright."
Sakha: "Not well-treated were you?"
She casts cura to heal his wounds.
Pak managed to totally miss the Tsunami.
Riia reaches down to give Sakha a hand up…
Hector: "Sakha, we should get going. You want to take Jaun with us?"
ORN helping trombe with the steering anyways
[OOC] Hector: Juan, dammit. D:
Juan blinks. "You…you're mending me?"
Cassandra Lionheart: "What happened Juan?
Sakha: "He's popular enough it'd give us leverage with anyone we meet. And why not? You said you'd save me, even if you didn't, but I guess they say it's the thought that counts."
Juan: "I have not seen mercy since I was selected to be the prize of Maria, many years ago."
Pak: "Alright, then bring him up here! x_x"
Pak: "Or I'll do it myself!"
Pak: "…"
ORN: "…"
Pak: "Why do I hear a rushing sound?"
Riia gives Pak a small shove: 'do it'
Pak suddenly looks around.
Pak: "…"
Pak: "…O…oh."
Pak: "that's why."
ORN: "Trombe Unit. Ready auxilary propulsion units."
Hector: "Come on!"
By now the tsunami has approached a considerable distance.
Felicia blinks.
Sakha: "It's not mercy! I'm not merciful! It's… just…"
The rest of the pirate fleet seems to have scattered.
Hector: "You can finish healing Juan while we're trying to avoid the tsunami!"
Pak jumps down near them! He lands atop Sakha and Juan and teleports the three back onto trombe!
Sakha: "OH YOU SHUT IT!"
Trombe begins to run, indeed.
Riia sighs and relaxes, laying down on Trombe
Sakha stomps over to get on Trombe.
Pak used teleporting to speed that process up.
Trombe is fast. The tsunami is faster. It eevn changes course to aim straight for the party.
Pak: "…"
Pak: "T…"
Pak points at the Tsunami accusingly!
Eric Lionheart: "…"
Eric_Lionheart starts charging up his wind magic.
Riia eyes ORN
Riia makes a jumping motion, then raises an eyebrow inquisitively
ORN gets ready to fire the lance at it
Sakha IMs Haste to make Trombe faster.
ORN: "Inappropriate timing. Jumping will occur when needed."
Hector is watching Juan for inappropriate movements toward Sakha.
[OOC] ORN: depending on jump speed, probably about 1.5 seconds before impact would occur
Trombe is hastened, accelerating to match speed with the tsunami just as its base reaches the party. Trombe is running along the wave, about half a meter above sea level.
Riia hmms
Cassandra Lionheart: "Whoa…Trombe surfing!!"
Riia points South, but doesn't seem sure of herself
[OOC] Riia: We don't want to overrun any islands, since Mer uses the Tsunamis to delete them…
[OOC] Riia: actually…….
Riia blinks excitedly, then points North instead!
Pak: "x_x Nnn… how do you slow water down?"
Riia looks for a map….
ORN: "Trombe Unit. Minimal angular change. Initiate jump presequence."
South is away from the tsunami. North is straight at the stunami.
ORN: "Freeze or Vaporise it"
Trombe: "Affirmative!"
[OOC] WC GM: -typo
[OOC] Riia: Well, we can go around the Tsunami, apparently
Felicia pulls out her map.
[OOC] Pak: Stew-nami :d
[OOC] Pak: Delicious
Riia shrugs and points at the line across the top?
[OOC] Riia: Not sure if a tidal wave can go through a portal…
Trombe: "Prepared to jump. Suggest initiating jump in very near future."
The tsunami is close enough that going around it to the left or right is no longer possible.
Pak: "…Okay…"
Hector: "Hold onto your hats…"
Riia sighs and lays back down…
Pak: "I wish I could make Trombe lighter, I guess I need better Gravity magic, but let's… go for it…!"
Hector holds the hat that Sakha discarded on his head.
[OOC] Pak: …!
Cassandra Lionheart: "Okay, Trombe *lays flat down on Trombe's floor, putting her arms around any thing that is bolted to Trombe*
[OOC] Pak: Wait, actually!
Pak prepares for jumping
Pak rolled 1d8 and got 5 for a total of 5**
ORN: "Reverse upon leaping. Brace for impact."
[OOC] Pak: Kay, nevermind
ORN: "Detonating lowest selves! Now."
Trombe LEAPS!
Up, up, up it goes, straight up the wall of water…
The tsunami stretches, trying to claw at the ascending group.
All it manages is to reach just below the apex of the jump. Trombe lands softly on the crest.
Cassandra Lionheart: "Did we make it?"
Pak: "…Are we gonna run down the back side?!"
Hector smirks.
[OOC] WC GM: http:/‘`/``electricchocobo.mid is the current BGM - Trombe’s travel theme.
Pak: "…T…that's AWESOME!"
Riia is up and pointing at the wave and laughing at maximum volume - i.e. barely audible
[OOC] Hector: I'm listening to FUCKIN' SLAYER.
Trombe wobbles back and forth on the crest, but seems mostly balanced.
ORN focuses on keeping the Trombe unit stablised
Eric Lionheart: "Impressive."
Hector whistles.
Hector focuses his attention back on Juan.
Cassandra Lionheart: "Tell me when it is over please."
Juan is curled up, looking around. "You…are from the legendary Refuge, are you not?"
Pak: "…"
Pak: "Yup."
Pak looks over Juan. COMPARISON.
Sakha: "I think everywhere ELSE is more legendary than Refuge."
ORN: "Most places existing, legends have little to do with it."
Hector: "S'pose Refuge is from a legend, but I don'think s'a legendary place r'anythin'.
Hector: "
Juan is physically between Pak and Hector. Definitely no kid. Stronger, but no a gnarled knot of muscle like Biggs.
[OOC] WC GM: +t
Pak hmms.
Juan's current clothing consists of shorts. His bare skin shimmers slightly in the moonlight.
Pak feels… slightly jealous. ;_; Juan's about as manly as a Mithra could ever be…"
Hector: "So what now? Y'think y'should come with us, or y'want us t'drop ya off in refuge or somethin'?"
Riia looks from Juan, to the sea, thoughtfully…
Pak droops.
[OOC] Riia: You weren't just being scottish for a moment lad?
[OOC] WC GM: Wrong region.
[OOC] Hector: Hector's got kind of a bad-grammar accent.
[OOC] Hector: Randomly truncating words 'cause he's not a book-learnin' kinda guy.
[OOC] Riia: Not Hector, WC…
Juan: "You oppose the pirates. I believe I am safer with you."
[OOC] Eric Lionheart: BRB.
Hector quirks an eyebrow up. Dammit. As long as he's around, Sakha might just go straight for him.
Juan looks upwards. "I have not seen the sky in so long…"
Cassandra_Lionheart looks at Jaun and nods
ORN: "It is the pirates which oppose us"
Juan looks to the inner moon - vanishing off into the distance, it must have made another pass while you were fighting Maria.
Pak: "Aw…"
Pak: "…"
Pak feels his jealousy melt away instantly. ";_; You mean they trapped you there…?"
Hector hms. "So we gotta find the other half a'Mer somehow."
[OOC] Cassandra Lionheart: brb
Pak crawls over and pets Juan's hair. "That's exactly why I ran away from home, so long ago…"
Juan nods. "I was the prize of Maria. She loaned me to others as a reward, but always kept me on her ship."
ORN: "It just attacked This Group, Hector."
ORN: "Hm. But then why would you not be allowed to leave?"
Hector: "That's not what I meant, y'damn tactless bucket a'rocks."
ORN: "Or were your functions similar to that of males held by the Viera?"
Juan leans in to Pak's petting. "I was fought over bef-"
Juan freezes up.
Juan: "…I know not what that word means, yet I feel in my heart it is something to fear."
Pak: "ORN, you don't know how Mithra work?"
Pak: "…Ah, you might not."
Riia checks her hood…
Pak: "I'll explain, if you wish."
ORN: "It is not. Imagine a race identical to yours in all functions, save that their ears and tail look different. Their appetite for the rape of smaller males is identical, as are many of their views."
ORN turns most of trombe's head to pak and looks
ORN: "Very well. Please explain."
Riia doesn't have her hood up, but she's not gonna draw attention by raising it
Sakha: "Viera are a race of only females, they keep men of other races for reproduction."
Cassandra_Lionheart looks at Sakha and sighs
Juan: "What happens to the other races' women?"
[OOC] Riia: Fun that it's bone-deep, though.
ORN: "Some do not mind sharing. The Mithra, however, as you can imagine, very strongly did mind."
Sakha: "They keep them so that they can continue to produce breeders."
Juan: "…"
Juan: "It sounds as if you have personal experience with them."
ORN: "Other than a lack of males for their own species, mitigated by their ability to breed with anything, most clashes formed due to the fact that both are equally obsessed and aggressive in the obtaining and violating of males."
Sakha: "Admittedly, things may be changing now… since we DID fight and overthrow their guardian spirit Milf."
ORN: "If you do not fear the Mithra, you will have nothing to fear from the Viera."
Cassandra Lionheart: "We ran into the Viera earlier in our adventure, but Milf changed thier production..yeah.."
Pak: "…"
Pak: "Considering… Well, nevermind."
Pak: "ORN, you know why Mithra prize their males, right?"
Riia coughs
ORN: "Extreme jealousy, apparent social status symbolism, and a relative rarity of the males, coupled with a lack of training and education leading them to be used as little more than cattle for small broods of females?"
Pak: "…"
Pak: "…Well…"
Hector: "No tact at all…"
Felicia: "They are few."
Pak: "It's mostly the Rarity."
Riia looks from Pak to Juan and back to Pak, then puts a finger to her lips
ORN would be extremely judgemental about it if it was anything more than intellectual curiosities
Pak: "We only have about 1/10th the amount of males to females."
[OOC] ORN: but at that moment, its nothing but "oooh! ooh! I know! I know! pick me!"
Pak: "But various places treat them in different ways."
Pak: "For instance, Male Mithra have more freedoms in the capital of Refuge than they do in Seaburg."
ORN: "You yourself stated you were used or raised as such a trophy, correct?"
Pak: "Not so much a trophy…"
Sakha: "…"
ORN: "There is nothing wrong with being used in such a manner so long as it is consensual by the would-be slave… Which seems to be an issue."
Pak: "I had education and training."
Pak: "But it was all aligned towards eventually becoming a husband."
ORN: "There would likely be less tension if males bred these numbers of their own volition."
Pak: "Bred these numbers…?"
Pak: "How do you mean?"
ORN: "You disliked being trapped in this manner, correct?"
Pak: "Yeah…"
ORN: "That is not to say you dislike the specific act for which you were kept, correct?"
Pak: "That's why I ran away from home."
Pak: "…I'm confused."
Pak: "Oh, wait…'
Sakha turns away uncomfortably and looks out to sea.
ORN: "But if given the chance to perform these deeds of your own free will, then there would be nothing to worry about. Correct?"
Pak: "…Well, yeah, okay."
Pak: "It wouldn't be so bad if that was the case, but…"
Pak: "…Well, lemme put it this way."
Riia sits down next to Sahka, joining her in ignoring this conversation as much as possible
Pak points at Juan.
Pak: "He was apparently tied up and stuff in that ship, right?"
ORN nods
Juan sits on Sakha's other side, lost in his own thoughts.
ORN: "This seems rather detrimental to the mood"
Sakha ignores the bunny.
Pak: "We weren't necessarily… restrained in that way. It was more like… we didn't have any other job opportunities or anything."
Cassandra Lionheart: "You know, lets stop talking about sexual Slavery, please."
Pak: "…>_>"
Pak: "Sorry."
Pak: "Why did everyone get all upset…?"
Pak is confused.
ORN: "The lack of opportunities seems to be the issue at hand then. Not knowing anything else is tantamount to indoctrination, a prison in itself"
ORN: "? ? ?"
Cassandra Lionheart: "I know it is an uncomfortable subject to everybody here. Not just the Viera and the Mithra present."
Eric Lionheart: "…"
ORN: "Would it not be more comfortable if a solution was achieved?"
Pak: "…It's not normally as bad as what the Viera did, honest."
Pak looks down.
Cassandra Lionheart: "Pak, they were magialy manipulated to do it that way."
Pak: "Though I'm sure… back then, things really were that bad."
[OOC] Cassandra Lionheart: magically
ORN: "Ignoring a problem allows it to fester, train, and increase in power. Eliminating it thoroughly ensures happiness for all."
Pak: "No, I mean in terms of capturing people and holding them against their will. n.n;"
Pak: "A…anyway.'
Cassandra_Lionheart looks at ORN and sighs
Pak looks over at Juan.
ORN: "If sexual slavery makes you uncofmortable, but sexual acts in themselves do not, elminate slavery with extreme prejudice."
ORN: "Consensual rape is likely more pleasurable in any case than non-consensual, correct?"
Cassandra Lionheart: "Wait, what make you think the act doesn't make me uncomfortable either?"
*glares at ORN*
ORN: "… ?"
Pak: "…Hey, are we still standing on top of the wave?"
ORN nods
Hector pats Pak on the head.
Pak crawls over next to Juan, Sakha and Riia and peers over the edge.
Pak: "…"
Pak: "Why? Won't this wave crash into something eventually and we'll all die?"
Cassandra_Lionheart sighs "Oay…I am uncomfortable okay."
ORN: "Negative. Jumping is not an issue."
Cassandra_Lionheart then looks at ORN "Rape is not consensual, okay. Now drop it."
ORN: "… ? ? ? ? ?"
Riia pushes two hands towards each other, then taps one with a finger and moves the finger into an arc
ORN nods at Riia
Pak: "Oh, right, we can just drop off."
ORN: "Agreed. Two hands can be seperated despite fingers."
Pak: "Still, won't Mer just crash us someplace far, far, far to the south?"
ORN understands sign language perfectly. yeah.
Trombe: "Described plan appears to correlate to Mer's intentions."
Cassandra_Lionheart shakes her head at ORN "You definitly need a rebooting and reprogramming!"
Riia waves a finger in the air and shrugs
ORN: "This Unit keeps hearing these terms but lacks a definition"
Pak: "I dunno them either. I bet they're things Cassie learned from her dad."
Pak stretches~
Pak: "Anyway, Mr. Juan~"
ORN: "Leaping must not be performed back towards the ocean, Trombe Unit. Mer's Intentions likely correlate to her earlier shown ability to alter the course of the Tsunami rapidly."
ORN: "To do so would likely be a sprung trap."
Trombe: "Affirmative."
Pak grins at him. :3 "We need to get you some clothes! You look cold!"
Juan: "…we may be able to find some, if we are headed where I think we are headed."
ORN: "This Series was taught verbally and through example. Only basic movement, already integrated within the ancestor frames, were contained."
Sakha: "Oh?"
Cassandra_Lionheart looks at Pak, and is mad "My dad was busy making ORN from the ground up, and my mom….don't get me started!!!"
ORN: "Was non-existant in the program."
Juan: "I overheard the pirates describing their larger plans, once. The farming village would be kept on one island. The woodcutters would be moved from place to place as each island was exhausted, leaving the others to lie fallow as they harvested one island clean."
ORN: "This Unit had no reason to believe Creator Lionheart was related to Cassie for this reason. Creator Lionheart and the Chief Enchanter had no children of that age."
ORN looks to Juan
ORN: "And the others?"
Hector: "Hm."
Cassandra_Lionheart looks at ORN and is puzzled
Juan: "The miners were for those that Mer could not control in any way, and would be kept where no surreptitous scouts would think to look."
Pak: "So we're headed to an iron island? I see."
Hector still wonders how the meteor crash could favor Mer in any way.
Juan: "Even if the pirates controlled most of the sea, there was always a danger that some youth would cast off and look for the missing village. They would go from island to island, looking…but never finding."
Juan shakes his head. "We are not headed for any island."
Pak: "…"
Pak: "I'm confused…"
Cassandra Lionheart: "Where are we headed then?"
Juan points south. "We are headed for the sea's end."
ORN: "It may be waiting in the hopes Leaping off will occur when boredom strikes or rations end."
Sakha: "End?"
Juan: "The land beyond which…we know not what lies."
Cassandra Lionheart: "Ok…Time to bail then?"
Pak: "…O_O."
Riia shakes head…
Riia grins
ORN: "… The portals. This may prove interesting. This Unit would recommend against leaving at this moment then."
Juan: "The legends of Refuge say that it is somewhere beyond the sea's end."
Juan: "But those are only legends."
ORN looks to Riia
Riia coughs
Cassandra Lionheart: "Okay."
Juan: "Portals? If you refer to the Shining Curtain, that lies to the north."
[OOC] Hector: We're in the northern hemisphere, right?
[OOC] WC GM: Yes.
ORN: "There may be more on the other side of this world."
[OOC] Hector: So basically we'd just crash into a huge mess of mountains.
[OOC] WC GM: You know that. Juan apparently does not.
[OOC] Riia: Exactly.
ORN: "This Unit wished to study all such portals."
Hector: "If we're going south, I think we're just going to crash into that huge mess a'mountains in the middle."
ORN: "The information from them could prove most useful to This Group's duty"
ORN: "… You underestimate the Trombe Unit and This Unit's ability to navigate terrain at the moment."
Riia coughs
Juan: "Mountains? Yes, that would fit. It is a high place, I heard, with metals sucked from the planet's core by the inner moon."
Cassandra_Lionheart sighs "We should have bailed."
Riia waves a hand around, pointing at the group, then folds her hands across her chest, then points to the mountains. 'we' 'want' 'south'
ORN: "Volcano. Mountainsburg."
Riia then points down at the tidal wave, makes a pushing gesture, and points south with an evil grin.
ORN: "The Trombe Unit demonstrated ability to cross these with little difficulty even without aid and upgrades."
ORN nods at the Engineer
ORN: "This should prove most interesting."
Cassandra Lionheart: "Riia, you want us to bat the tsunami with something to let us go?"
Riia blinks
Riia shakes her head very rapidly
Cassandra Lionheart: "Sounds good to me!"
With the knowledge that the group seems to be manipulating Mer for its own end, the water wave travels on into the night… //
