EC Session 6.1

Morning, Merch 1 Pyrday.
The trip back to Refuge has taken two and a half days. The only odd part was passing through the polar warp - the party was not allowed outside, so everyone saw the rainbow curtain of energy pass through the ship, and themselves, and then the light was different.
Grav gave up the lens attack after the ship's shade - and the constant protection given by the mages on board - completely blocked the effects.
[OOC] Hector: Lens attack? wtf is this, Tales of Destiny?
[OOC] WC GM: No, from the end of last session.
[OOC] Hector: I'm being facetious. D:
[OOC] WC GM: Where Grav made a magnifying lens - and you were the ants
Pak is lying on a bed tiredly. "Huu…"
Hector isn't quite sure what he should be saying to Sakha, if anything. Maybe he should wait for her to make the next move.
Even so, the ship sailed on - going right through Seaburg, and on up to Refuge City.
Cassandra_Lionheart contines to sit on the deck, real quiet and staring at her sword.
Riia is working on an autotargeting gizmo for her rifle…
Finally, around mid-morning, it docks at the docks.
Pak stirrs.
Pak: "x_x"
Regent is on the dock, smiling and waving. "Heeey~!"
Eric_Lionheart is researching about interactions between various elements.
Pak: "Mrr…"
Pak: "I'm exhausted…"
Pak: "Do we have to get up?"
Riia lowers her hood and massages her ears
Pak sounds worn out.
ORN raises hand and nods
Cassandra_Lionheart sees the regent and waves
Kupostein gets on deck. "Oho. Good, my initial research has concluded. Now I can proceed with kupostruction."
The moogle waves a few laborers over, to transport his equipment to workshops.
Cassandra_Lionheart looks at the regent and smiles "I need to talk to…HER, now please." *a tone of anger in her voice*
Regent: "Her?"
ORN: "The Regent is right there…"
Fakir: "I believe she means her mother."
Riia eyes Cassie thoguhtfully, then follows along.
Cassandra Lionheart: "My…mother."
Eric Lionheart: "Cassandra, are you sure that is wise?"
ORN: "… Did you not kick her out earlier?"
Regent: "Oh! I believe she's at her estate, in mourning for her husband."
Cassandra Lionheart: "I need something for her. Only her and I know about it." *looks to ORN* "She did..but right now, this is more important than family squabbles!"
Cassandra Lionheart: "Mourning? Dad?"
[OOC] Hector: RRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH
Regent: "He died in the Forestburg fire."
ORN: "? ? ? Mourning ?"
Cassandra_Lionheart looks down with a sadden look on her face "Is she taking visitor anyways?"
Regent: "I…haven't asked. I've had other things to deal with."
Cassandra Lionheart: "I'm…going then."
Riia tilts her head and looks at the Regent inquisitively.
Cassandra_Lionheart walks off the boat "Dad…"
Eric Lionheart: "I'll come with you, cousin. I don't think you should go alone."
ORN stares at Riia
ORN: "?"
ORN: "Mourning?"
Riia shrugs and follows the Lionhearts
ORN follows since no one's explaining
Cassandra_Lionheart looks back to Eric and ORN "My father…Your creator…is dead."
ORN: "… Obviously. This Unit informed you of such matters weeks ago."
Cassandra Lionheart: "Well, guess it just hit mom now. ORN if you come, please be careful."
ORN nods
ORN: "Is This Unit ever not on guard?"
Eric Lionheart: "I don't think we'd be attacked or anything…"
Hector yawns tiredly. There wasn't a single drop of coffee on the ship.
Pak gets out of bed, blinking in the sun.
Cassandra Lionheart: "I need to talk to her anyways…Like I said I need something from her, and this situation is bigger than a family squabble."
Pak: "x_x"
Pak: "It's too bright…"
Eric Lionheart: "Something, huh?"
ORN: "?"
Cassandra Lionheart: "Yeah I need our family Sword."
Cassandra_Lionheart begins to walk to her mother's mansion
ORN: "?"
ORN: "And they consistently claim to be pacifists"
Hector waits for Pak to finish waking up.
Cassandra Lionheart: "ORN..It was made way before mom became strictly a healer.
The Lionheart estate is about what one would expect: large, palatial - though not as much as the royal castle, and fenced off from the commoners.
Cassandra_Lionheart walks up too the front door, and knocks
A guard at the gate bars the way.
Pak stands on the deck. "Bleh. x.x"
Cassandra Lionheart: "Erm..Excuse me."
Pak: "Where are we, anyway?"
Pak: "Oh, Regent! Hi."
Guard: "No one but family may proceed while Alexandra is in mourning."
The guard nods to Eric. "You may go in, sir."
Hector puts his hands into his pockets and walks over to Pak. "Mornin'. You feelin' alright, little bro?"
Riia frowns
Eric Lionheart: "She's coming with me."
Eric Lionheart: "So is the hunk of rock."
Cassandra Lionheart: "I am family. Let me through!"
Guard: "I'm afraid I have strict orders. Family only."
[OOC] Riia: I get stuck outside? That's cold, Eric, that's cold.
[OOC] Eric Lionheart: First things first.
[OOC] WC GM: It's a conflict over who counts as "family".
[OOC] WC GM: Riia isn't related. The other two are.
[OOC] Riia: I know, I know.
Cassandra Lionheart: "Let me through. Or I'll cut your life from you!"
[OOC] Hector: Walls and guards are no problem for Orn the Grasshopper-Rock!
Cassandra_Lionheart grips her sword hilt.
Regent has been discussing matters with Fakir while waiting for the others to awaken.
Eric Lionheart: "Cassandra, let me handle this."
[OOC] ORN: indeed ^^;;
Cassandra_Lionheart glares at the guard, and sighs
Cassandra Lionheart: "Go ahead Eric."
Pak hops up to Regent.
Eric Lionheart: "She is family, and the rock and the other one are close friends. I would greatly prefer if you made a exception to your orders and let all of us though."
Pak: "Have you made contact with the Mithra yet?"
Hector nods to Regent and Fakir. "What's up, you two?"
Guard: "…"
Regent: "You mean Primeira and her village? Yes, their tunnel intercepted the tunnel from Mountainsburg."
ORN: "If it is of any help to your decision, This Unit could be discounted as a person entirely and thus not subject to your tresspassing regulations."
Eric Lionheart: "I am positive that my aunt would not mind either. She needs to hear what Cassandra has to say."
The guard looks at ORN. "No, I believe Alexandra's precise words were, 'That THING is a bastard child and is not to be counted as a Lionheart.'"
Guard: "So I'm afraid I do have to count you as a person."
Cassandra Lionheart: "That THING is the last thing my father MADE!"
Cassandra Lionheart: "ORN is as much family as Eric by that right!"
ORN: "That pencilpusher was not one of the Creators, however."
ORN puts hand on cassie's shoulder a moment
ORN nods
Hector starts scratching Pak behind his ears.
ORN: "In any case, not going through is not an issue. This Unit will abide by this poor man's limited duty"
Regent: "They said a 'Juan' left his sword behind, and they figured you should have it."
ORN walks off a few meters, jumps over the wall, and comes up behind the guy, raising hand and nodding at the two
Regent produces a Scimitar, and hands it to Hector.
ORN: "Going Through the gate was circumvented."
Pak: "Ooh!"
Regent blnks. "Do you know what that was about?"
Pak: "Hector, take it~"
Hector quirks an eyebrow up. "Whaddya know."
Pak nods, grinning.
Pak: "Well, anyway, it's good to know we'll have more Mithra around!"
Guard: "…"
Hector takes it and puts it in his pack. "I gave it to 'im 'cause I thought he could do somethin' in a fight. I was completely wrong."
Guard: "Now wait a minute!"
Riia sighs
Pak nods, looking quite cheery~
Eric Lionheart: "At the minimum Cassandra should be permited though, and it seems ORN has his own way."
Pak: "…"
Riia taps the guard on the shoulder
Cassandra Lionheart: "Please..She is my mother damn it!"
Pak randomly looks around, half-expecting to be pounced.
ORN: "If you prefer, additional gates which you are not currently guarding could be created"
The guard looks at Riia.
ORN sparkles brightly
[OOC] ORN: intimidation?
Riia points at him, then points at ORN, then somehow manages to indicate that if he tries to stop ORN, who /probably/ shouldn't be in there…
Riia will go in, and she /definitely/ shouldn't be in there.
[OOC] WC GM: Sure - for Riia, who has his attention just now.
[OOC] Hector: Don't you mean Falchion, though? That's what I gave to Juan.
Hector can easily seen that Juan spent some time honing and upgrading the sword.
[OOC] WC GM: No, I mean Scimitar.
[OOC] Hector: o_O
[OOC] Riia: Not really much of an intimidation attempt…
Hector hms. "I think I'll hold onta this."
[OOC] WC GM: What, thought that investment wouldn't earn interest? ;)
Eric_Lionheart also heads in. "Come along Cassandra."
[OOC] WC GM: Riia - roll it anyway.
[OOC] Riia: What does it default to?
[OOC] WC GM: SPR
Cassandra_Lionheart nods and follows Eric
[OOC] Hector: Do any of the characters actually use 1H swords?
Riia rolled 1d100 and got 28 ( Total: 28 )
[OOC] Riia: SPR chance of 36…
The guard meeps a bit, then sighs and closes his eyes. "You…you snuck past me and I didn't see you go in. Clear?"
[OOC] Riia: I was just trying to get the guard to leave ORN alone.
[OOC] WC GM: I think Felicia does, Hector.
Cassandra_Lionheart nods to the guard and walks by with Riia, Eric and ORN in tow.
[OOC] Riia: But okay!
Eric Lionheart: "Thank you."
Riia shadows the group.
Guard: "Just go."
Guard: "And…please, break her depression if you can, sir."
ORN: "Break her. got it."
The door proves to be unlocked.
Riia twaps ORN, careful in order to not hurt her hand
Eric_Lionheart rubs his forehead.
Cassandra Lionheart: "No ORN! She is depressed..Lets try to make her feel good."
ORN: "… … ."
Cassandra_Lionheart opens the door
Eric Lionheart: "…"
Eric Lionheart: "I think I'll do all the talking."
Pak looks about.
Pak: "…Huh. I half-expected Fyl to pounce atop me."
Pak: "Anyway."
Regent: "Fyl? She's helping Primeira and her village get used to Refuge."
Pak: "Oh!"
Pak: "Cools. Where at?"
Regent: "Mountainsburg."
Pak: "…"
Cassandra Lionheart: "Eric..She will only listen to me about this subject."
Pak looks around, having not really payed attention to where they are.
Hector chuckles. "Guess that's more than a little daytrip, huh?"
Pak: "Yeah. :/"
ORN: "You are the only one capable of making her feel good?"
Pak: "We're in Refuge right now?"
Cassandra_Lionheart looks to ORN "Not in that way bub!"
Fakir: "Refuge City."
ORN stares at cassie, mildly disturbed
Eric_Lionheart rubs his forehead.
Pak: "Kay."
Pak: "Sorry, I've been, uh…'
Hector: "If you're really set on seein' her, couldn't we just grab Trombe and go barrelin' over to Mountainsburg?"
Pak: "Kinda out of it the past few days."
Pak: "I can't imagine Sakha's much better."
The foyer is just as Eric and Cassandra remember it - save for the woman dressed in black, slumped on a couch looking away from them.
Cassandra_Lionheart looks "Mom?"
Riia sidles up against a wall, since her only purpose is moral support
Trombe: "Full transport capabilities restored. Estimate less than one hour to reach Mountainsburg."
Alexandra stiffens, then slowly turns around. "Y O U !"
Cassandra_Lionheart gulps "I'm…not..here..to fight. Please!"
Alexandra scowls at Cassandra. "How DARE you set foot in this house."
ORN: "Feet were already installed prior to entering."
Alexandra: "And that…that…BASTARD of his."
Cassandra_Lionheart shrinks back a bit "Because I care about you still. And I need IT."
Alexandra: "If I had not sworn an oath to the healing arts you would both be dead right now."
Eric_Lionheart adjusts his glasses. "Hello Aunt Alexandra."
ORN breaks open his arm
ORN: "Unlikely"
Cassandra_Lionheart looks down "Really? You'd kill me?"
Hector: "I guess we could pay a visit to Fyl if you want then, Pak."
Alexandra shifts to a smile. "Hello, Eric. On leave from your duties?"
[OOC] Riia: She's not depressed. She's CRAZY
Alexandra: "It is good of you to visit me just now."
She does not seem to even acknowledge Riia's presence.
Pak: ">.>"
Pak: "…Well.."
Eric Lionheart: "You can say that. I came in with Cassandra."
Cassandra_Lionheart sighs
Pak: "Hector, you wanna take a quick trip to mountainsburg?"
[OOC] Hector: Why am I somehow imagining Eric as some kind of hybrid of Alto from Macross Frontier and Lucius from Fire Emblem 7?
Pak: "After all, the rest of the party ran off to Cassie's house."
[OOC] ORN: interesting. and sorta funny
Hector nods. "Yeah, that's fine with me."
Alexandra continues smiling. "Oh? You really should know better than to bring in the trash."
Cassandra_Lionheart gets a bit angry "Trash?"
Pak: "Let's see if Sakha or Ahiru wanna come first."
ORN: "Such containers were already present at the entrance."
Pak looks around for them.
ORN: "This Group did not bring them in from the outside"
ORN: "That would be rather impolite."
Alexandra stands up, walks over, and hugs Eric.
Riia hmms
Riia sets her sign to read "Social conflict: observe" and taps ORN on the shoulder so he reads it.
Eric_Lionheart hugs back. "You know I'm not going to consider my cousin trash…"
Alexandra: "But don't worry about me. I'll get over him…eventually."
ORN: "Hm"
Cassandra_Lionheart begins to tear up "Listen you! I'm here for something that is more important than our little squabble!"
ORN nods at Riia
Alexandra: "Of course not. And I would never consider someone who is still my daughter trash."
Alexandra: "But that person is not here."
[OOC] Riia: …Alexandria believes - holy crap, she IS nuts.
Cassandra_Lionheart forms a fist with her hand "That is IT!"
[OOC] WC GM: Cassandra has a sister. That's the "still my daughter"/"still your cousin" Alexandra's referring to.
[OOC] Riia: Oh.
Cassandra_Lionheart drops her sword and armor "I think you had this coming for a long time!"
[OOC] ORN: you thought she was thinking of her dead husband as a daughter? ;p
ORN: "*Quietly, to Riia* … Are you certain this is a social conflict?"
Eric Lionheart: "Cassandra, enough. This won't help."
Alexandra: "Oh, dear. The trash is becoming agitated."
[OOC] Riia: Nah, I thought she believed there were two Cassies, one who was a fighter, one who was a white mage
Alexandra: "Perhaps I *should* dispose of it myself."
ORN raises arm and sets a charge
Riia shrugs and makes sure her rifle is loaded…
Cassandra_Lionheart walks to her mother "Everybody, back off! She is mine!"
ORN: "Any hostile actions will result in the elimination of Cassie's remaining parent"
Alexandra: "I can't rely on the help for everything."
Riia blinks
Eric Lionheart: "ORN, put that…part of your arm down."
Riia: =|
Alexandra saunters over to the fireplace, and draws the sword hanging over it.
Riia raises a sign "Hired…help…Assassins?"
Alexandra: "I always thought this was in poor taste, for a family of healers. I suppose it is time to dispose of it."
Cassandra Lionheart: "Oh crap.." *races BACK to get her armor and sword!
Alexandra flings the sword at Cassandra!
ORN intercepts
Cassandra_Lionheart covers herself with her own sword
[OOC] Riia: Thowing it on the trash?
The sword shatters against ORN - who stops it from severing Cassandra's neck.
Riia will wait for Cassie's say-so, but her sign is away because her rifle is in her hands…
ORN fires a heavy slug at Alexandra
Cassandra_Lionheart slumps to the ground breathing raggedly "ORN…NO!"
The slug dissapates against a Wall.
Cassandra_Lionheart gets back up "What the hell mom?"
Eric Lionheart: "…Aunt, you have broken literally every word you made about your oath by doing that."
Alexandra: "No I haven't. I heal people, and creatures in need. Trash is trash."
ORN: "Then dispose of yourself."
Eric Lionheart: "Hmph. I wonder what my mother would think about this."
ORN: "Alternatively, This Unit has exceptional patience in combat. How long can you hold up this wall?"
[OOC] Pak: So uhh
[OOC] Pak: Me and Hector will wait for the drama to die out
Alexandra: "And if the trash does not remove itself, there are ways for white magic to burn it away."
ORN sparkles brilliantly and pulses green for a moment
Cassandra_Lionheart blinks "So be it. I though I could ask for the Lionheart sowrd to help the world out in its time of need. But I guess I was wrong."
Alexandra waves, raising a Shield.
Eric_Lionheart casts Null Element: Holy, then Wind.
Eric's Null Element comes up just in time to neutralize Alexandra's Holy.
Cassandra_Lionheart tries to walk to her mother again "YOur being irrational!"
Eric Lionheart: "There, now no one can fling spells and attack eachother. Now lets calm down a little."
[OOC] WC GM: Let's just say, auto-cap level damage, stopped.
Alexandra: "Ah, it is good to see you have been practicing your defensive arts, Eric, but now is hardly the time."
[OOC] ORN: eh, would've survived a shot
Cassandra sees the pieces of her family sword around her.
Cassandra_Lionheart looks at the sword
Cassandra Lionheart: "….It is shattered….Like our family now."
Cassandra_Lionheart begins to pick up the pieces
ORN: "Eric. Phase Two integration on standby. Immediately warn when her barrier system deactivates"
Cassandra Lionheart: "ORN, please!! I did not come to fight damn it!"
Eric Lionheart: "I'm not going to tell you the moment that shield drops…murder is not justified."
ORN: "Self defense. That blade was meant for Cassie. That female is no longer non-hostile"
The pieces are easily enough recovered.
Cassandra_Lionheart picks up the final piece and looks at ORN and her mother "Damn…STOP IT NOW!" screaming at the top of her lungs
ORN: "?"
Alexandra: "Did you hear something, Eric?"
Riia wishes she still had her ears folded up under her hood.
Eric Lionheart: "Yes, I do believe your daughter is trying to tell you to stop this silliness."
Cassandra_Lionheart sighs "You know what…I havewasted my breathe here. Lets go."
[OOC] Pak: Okay
Alexandra: "I do not see my daughter here."
[OOC] Pak: Road trip nao~
Riia steps up to the plate.
Eric Lionheart: "Then…it would seem there is little hope for my request to bring Cassandra back into the family, then."
ORN: "Your targetting is inaccurate. But then This Unit does not see the appropriate person to be mourning for Creator Lionheart's death here either"
Riia holds up her sign, which reads, "I lost all my daughters."
[OOC] WC GM: Pak: you were still waiting for Ahiru/Sakha to wake?
Pak hops up onto Trombe, along with anyone else that's coming with, and rides off to Mountainsburg.
[OOC] Hector: Yeah, we pretty much were.
Riia changes it to "I have missed them since before you were alive, each and every day."
ORN: "They died in eachother's arms, after all"
[OOC] Pak: Yeah, but Terra seems to be idling. So if she wants to come, we'll say we woke her and dragged her along.
Cassandra_Lionheart walks out of the room "Mom…may whatever diety you believe in have mercy on you…Because I don't…anymore."
Alexandra: "I will thank you never to speak that name in my presence again, Eric."
ORN: "Hm?"
Riia follows that with "Here you throw yours away."
Riia finishes with "What is wrong with you?"
[OOC] Sakha: Actually doing side with Jeff
ORN: "riia has created descendant units?"
[OOC] Pak: Oh.
[OOC] Hector: Yeah.
[OOC] Pak: Fine, I'll wait.
[OOC] Hector: I'm not good with dramatic shit, so it may take a while.
Alexandra cocks her head at Riia. "Eric…is that a…Viera, are they called?"
Riia nods
Eric Lionheart: "Yes, she is a friend."
Alexandra: "How nice for you. Though you may wish to advise her to watch her sign. What she puts on it comes across as insulting - clearly a mistake in translation, for you would not make friends with such types."
Alexandra smiles.
[OOC] Riia: Wow, she's really inconsistent.
ORN: "Wow. Racist too. No wonder he left you."
Cassandra_Lionheart walks out of the castle and looks back, with a tear in her eyes.
[OOC] Riia: Actually I don't think that comment was actually racist - just with Alexandra's typical levels of wilful blindness.
[OOC] ORN: dude, that's racism.
[OOC] Riia: Only when it pertains in some way to race, which this didn't.
[OOC] WC GM: Not exactly. It wasn't putting her down just for being another race.
Eric_Lionheart sighs. "Anyways…do you know where my mother is? I need to talk with her."
[OOC] ORN: eh, then hatred of the disabled
[OOC] Riia: Nah, nothing new when she spoke- just the typical 'I'm not doing anything wrong in my life.'
[OOC] Riia: It's too bad she DIDN'T make a racist remark, I had a good comeback about eating one's children…
[OOC] ORN: hey, at least WE don't throw out our kids! we EAT them!
[OOC] Riia: Not that Crazy McPsycho would be able to understand it.
Alexandra: "Hmm. I think Cleopatra was going to Mountainsburg, to greet some new mithra or something."
Cassandra_Lionheart wonders what is taking them so long, and walks back in
Alexandra: "She's probably still there."
ORN stares at eric, waiting for signal, and looks at what's breakable in the room in the meantime
[OOC] Hector: Cleopatra. XD
Eric Lionheart: "Then I'll be heading there then. Goodbye, aunt."
[OOC] WC GM: Hey, given the other names in the family…
Riia follows.
ORN: "Eric?"
Eric_Lionheart heads out. "Come on, ORN. Nothing left to do here."
ORN: "… That female assaulted cassie"
ORN sees a lot of things that are breakable. And a Shield that is growing to cover them.
ORN hurries it then before the shield covers all
Eric Lionheart: "And you stopped that. That's good enough."
ORN charges up some lightning and lets loose across everything
The Shield surges, intercepting the lightning.
Eric_Lionheart rubs his forehead. "You do realize the second I leave you won't be protected by my magic?"
ORN: "The hostility will remain. The hatred will remain."
ORN: "Are you fine with leaving such sources active and living?"
Cassandra_Lionheart stands at the doorway, and sighs
Riia raises a sign "It can wait."
Alexandra: "Eric, please DO remove that trash, or allow me to do so."
Riia raises a sign "Fire later?"
Alexandra: "It is becoming a nuisance."
Eric Lionheart: "I think it'll be dealt with once we reach Mountainsburg."
ORN: "… … …"
ORN: "Very well"
ORN turns
Riia thinks…
Riia: >=D
ORN: "That wall will not protect you forever. Especially not from This Unit's reach."
ORN: "Especially not once the Volcannon has been installed"
ORN walks out
Cassandra Lionheart: "You guys go on ahead, okay?"
[OOC] ORN: soon as I'm out I cherry blossom her roof :P
Eric Lionheart: "No, you are coming too."
Pure light floods the foyer once the party leaves.
Cassandra Lionheart: "Hey!! Ohh..damn!"
Cassandra_Lionheart looks and runs.
Alexandra did not rise to be head of the Lionheart clan without some degree of power, it seems.
Eric_Lionheart leaves.
Cassandra_Lionheart looks at Eric, and then hugs him…real tight
[OOC] WC GM: ORN: in game terms, White Mage who's over twice your level. To fight her for real would end up with you in Fatal. ORN can easily determine this IC.
Cassandra Lionheart: "Darn it…stubborn…woman." *cries into his shoulder*
[OOC] ORN: yeah but right now he doesn't actually care whether she's 99 or 999. Assault on a party member means she'll die as soon as he gets the opportunity ^^;
Eric_Lionheart hugs back. "Well, at least I tried…but I think for now we must speak with my mother before the entire family shatters forever."
Eric Lionheart: "Hopefully she hasn't gone insane since I left."
Cassandra Lionheart: "Eric..I think it is too late now.."
Riia raises her hand, with the fingers crossed
Cassandra_Lionheart lets go and hugs ORN and Riia also "I'm sorry you had to see that ugliness."
[OOC] Hector: Can she be our bonus postgame boss?
[OOC] Hector: We'll grind experience for six more months!
[OOC] Pak: Hahahaha
Eric Lionheart: "Well, I think my mother will be far more reasonable."
Cassandra_Lionheart looks "Yeah..and maybe, she can fix the Lionheart sword."
[OOC] Hector: The Mignon sisters can fix it.
Eric Lionheart: "She did say she'd consider talking to aunt Alexandra about you before I left, so I have hope she'll realize the family is being torn apart."
ORN: "Ah, Eric. Please teach This Unit tha barrier method. That one back there will require elimination. Furthermore… … … ah, please wait a moment."
[OOC] Cassandra Lionheart: yeah, Casse has not thought of that yet.
ORN lancers a hole into the walls around the mansion
Eric Lionheart: "That barrier my aunt used? Nothing I know of can break it."
ORN's lance deflects off another Shield.
ORN: "… … … … Impossible. Everything has a breaking point."
Cassandra Lionheart: "Mountainburg huh? Well, I guess we should go huh?"
Eric Lionheart: "However…it takes alot of magical energy to sustain…energy which she has."
ORN: "ah?"
[OOC] Hector: *air-drums*
ORN: "So were This Unit to continue doing this, she'd die of exhaustion eventually?"
Cassandra Lionheart: "ORN! Enough, please!"
ORN fires another one
ORN hugs Eric and sparkles
The lance is fried by a Holy in mid-air.
Eric Lionheart: "…No, it would just drop…now come on, you hunk of rock."
Cassandra Lionheart: "She can wither and die for all I care!"
Cassandra_Lionheart walks awa from the mansion and begins to sob.
ORN: "That IS the intention, Cassie"
ORN follows
[OOC] Hector: Our availability will reach 1% and we'll use all our money to forge all the best equipment and healing items possible. It'll be like our very own Nippon Ichi game!
Eric Lionheart: "Maybe we should borrow Trombe? Mountainsburg is quite some distance away."
[OOC] Pak: :p~
The Lionhearts and Riia soon reach the docks. Trombe is there, with Pak aboard.
Pak is sitting on Trombe, waiting for Hector and others.
Cassandra Lionheart: "Hey Pak." *looks somber*
Eric Lionheart: "Hey, Pak. Where are you heading with Trombe?"
Hector is on Trombe as well. D:
[OOC] WC GM: Thought Hector was with Sakha?
Riia hops up and pats Pak on the shoulder
Cassandra Lionheart: "Well, I got the sword I need."
[OOC] Sakha: The side RP is in between sessions…
[OOC] Riia: During the trip home, theoretically.
Eric Lionheart: "The downside is said sword is in about ten different pieces."
Cassandra_Lionheart sighs "And I am..trash."
ORN: "Did you truly need it? Your current one does not break as easily"
[OOC] Hector: it's the Gaiden chapter we never got a chance to do beforehand.
ORN points at the pieces
Eric Lionheart: "You are Cassandra Lionheart…and you are more of one then your mother in my opinion."
ORN: "You rather appear to be recycling."
Pak: "Did Sakha want to come along?"
Pak looks back at Hector.
Cassandra_Lionheart looks at ORN "This is the Lionheart's family sword…It has untold power." *looks down* "I didn't tell mom I wanted to weild it…That was why I took up sword fighting."
Pak grins back at Riia. :3
Cassandra_Lionheart looks at Eric, and just begins to cry
Kupostein: "Hey! You're backupo!"
Sakha: "… I don't know what I want… I would still like to do some more reading… but… if you want me to…"
ORN makes connection: Untold power = not much to tell
Eric Lionheart: "It is possible the sword has lost its power from lack of use…I could do research on the pieces…and don't cry Cassandra…"
Fakir: "Err…actually, we never left."
Riia tilts her head at Sakha…
Cassandra_Lionheart looks at Eric "She tried to kill me!"
Kupostein: "No, no, I mean them." The moogle gestures to the Lionhearts and Riia. "I wanted to kupo you all at once."
Hector: "C'mon, Sakha. It could do ya good."
Pak: "You can read on the way there."
ORN: "And as soon as Eric gets over such dangerous pacificstic urges, This Group shall return the favor ten fold."
Sakha shrugs. "Alright."
Cassandra Lionheart: "Oh? What is it Kupostein?"
ORN: "But with more success"
Fakir headtilts, then looks at Cassandra. "Sounds like you've had a bit of an adventure this morning already."
Eric Lionheart: "ORN, you can't kill her. Enough said."
Pak: "We were about to go… >.>"
Pak: "But we can wait a bit. What's up?"
Riia thoughtfully twiddles the handle of her signboard, then raises it towards Sakha, where it reads: "Could you show me how magic works?"
ORN: "YET. They say the same thing about the spirits all the time."
Kupostein: "This won't take long. I've just been working out the production kupo."
Pak: "Okay."
Eric Lionheart: "I'd put better odds on you destroying the moon by yourself then killing her."
Cassandra Lionheart: "Okay, Kupostein..Lead the way."
Kupostein: "The rocket will be done in two weeks!"
Fakir: "…"
Pak: "Ooh!"
Sakha: "I need to learn more about people is all."
Regent: "…"
Pak: "…Wait."
Eric Lionheart: "…Rocket?"
The inner moon passes over the mountains. You can almost hear the volcanos from here.
Pak looks at Fakir and Regent. "Is… there a problem?"
ORN: "You give that female too much credit. She could not even hold on to family members without them quitting or firing them"
Regent: "…I don't think we HAVE two weeks."
Cassandra_Lionheart looks at the regent and Fakir and covers her ears
ORN: "Two weeks is too long."
Riia looks at Kupostein
ORN: "Alternatives are required."
Eric Lionheart: "…That thing is getting too close. We need something now."
Riia raises a sign: "Need help?"
Kupostein: "It'll take as long as it takes kupo. You can't kupo genius."
ORN: "Perhaps, but This Unit does not know what kupoing consists of."
Fakir closes his eyes. "Arrgh. Thanks, but we'll have to find another way."
Regent: "But keep on working on it, as a backup."
Cassandra_Lionheart walks close to the regent and whispers in her ear "Can you keep an eye on my ungrateful mother?"
ORN: "… What are the current alternatives?"
Hector: "Do we HAVE an alternative?"
Kupostein: "Of course! I couldn't stop now if I wanted to! The rush! The thrill! The inspiration! The muse hardly lets me sleep kupo!"
Pak: "Would an airship be done faster? >_>"
Cassandra Lionheart: "Trombe maybe? Outfit him with some type of propulsion system?"
Eric Lionheart: "…So why aren't you working on it now?"
Regent: "You mean Alexandra? We've…been confining her to her estate."
Cassandra_Lionheart looks at the Regent and sighs "How bad has she been?"
ORN: "Attempts by that female were made upon cassie's life. Eric would not aid This Unit in eliminating her shielding just now, but her elimination will eventually be required."
Eric Lionheart: "We are going to talk with my mother about Aunt Alexandra…unless someone already has?"
ORN: "Please be on the lookout for countermeasures."
Eric Lionheart: "And ORN, I am not kidding when I say all I can do is keep you from being incinerated by her magic."
Regent: "She's had no visitors, and there were two reports of…well, let's just say embarassing drunken behavior. Her guard is on my pay, but pretends to be under her orders."
Riia: =j
Pak: "Hmm."
Cassandra_Lionheart hugs the Regent and sobs "Then..I fear, it is too late for her."
Regent: "No visitors in the past week, anyway."
Pak: "This is…"
Fakir: "in any case - Kupostein, Eric's right. You should get back to your shop - we'll need it done as fast as possible."
Pak: "Yeah."
Pak: "Any help you need, we'll give."
ORN: "Meanwhile, alternatives are required."
Kupostein salutes. "Of course, your highness." Then runs away.
Pak: "We're going to mountainsburg~"
Fakir blinks.
Riia grins at that
Riia holds up a sign: "They know?"
Fakir sweatdrops. "Aheh…know what?"
Pak: "What?"
Eric Lionheart: "…"
Riia grins really widely.
Cassandra_Lionheart whispers to the Regent as she lets go of the hug "We still need to have that chat by the way."
Regent shakes her head. "Ahem. If you're going to Mountainsburg, you might want to go now."
Pak: "Kay."
ORN: "Problems?"
Regent nods to Cassandra. "When you return."
ORN looks around to spot the Trombe Unit
Pak makes Trombe run off, once everyone's on board.
Sakha packs up a few books to take on the trip.
ORN sees the Trombe right next to him.
Cassandra_Lionheart nods, and hops onto Trombe
Ahiru follows Fakir like a puppy.
Eric_Lionheart looks over to Sakha and the books, wondering what sort.
Fakir: "I'll stay here, if you don't mind."
Pak: "…Okay."
Pak: "Ahiru, you wanna stay here?"
Fakir hugs Ahiru.
Ahiru nods.
ORN nods
Pak: "Kay."
Pak zooms off on Trombe!
ORN glares at Fakir for a moment
ORN: "Do not run away without carrying her in the process"
ORN hops on trombe
Fakir: "Of course!"
[OOC] Eric Lionheart: inb4 Fakir vanishes again
Fakir winks, then sweeps Ahiru up in his arms as the rest of the group departs.
Ahiru squawks and grabs hold of Fakir.
The ride to Mountainsburg does indeed take less than an hour. Trombe takes the waterway, that providing the most level terrain - for one who can run on water, that is.
Cassandra_Lionheart stays quiet, looking at the broken sword pieces.
Eric_Lionheart looks and studies one of the pieces.
Soon enough, you arrive at the main waterfall - the power plant that still provides most of Refuge's electricity.
[OOC] WC GM: http:/‘`/www.wingedcat.org/sprites/``mountainsburg.gif
Cassandra Lionheart: "…Just like the family right now."
Pak LAUNCHES off of Trombe. "Fyyyyyyyyyyyyyl~!"
[OOC] WC GM: For those who forgot, or joined since the last time that came up.
[OOC] ORN: I remember that ^^;;;;
Pak is intercepted in mid-air. "PAAAAAA-ooof!"
Sakha: "What Family?" She hadn’t gone to see Cassie's mother.
Pak and Fyl collide and drop into the water.
Pak oofs~!
Pak splashes~! "KYAAH HELP CAN'T SWIM"
Cassandra Lionheart: "The Lionheatr's…This IS our family sword….WAS…whatever."
[OOC] Cassandra Lionheart: lionhearts..
Fyl: "The water's not deep here."
Pak …
Pak: "Oh."
Pak stands up.
Eric Lionheart: "I think it can be fixed…"
Fyl stands, the river coming to her waist.
Pak: "…S-still! x.x"
Fyl: "So, ah, how've you been?"
Cassandra Lionheart: "I hope so, Eric." *looks down at the water* "I hope so."
Pak: "Good!"
Riia snickers silently.
ORN: "Ah. Sakha. You've mastered more magic than Eric. The hostile was protected by some form of barrier… How does one eliminate it?"
Pak: "I had sex with a man!"
Pak: "…It's a long story."
[OOC] ORN: PFFFT
Fyl: "…"
Cassandra Lionheart: "Pak!"
Eric Lionheart: "But…I'm not exactly knowledable about this…if we could find out what sort of power it has, and what it is made of, someone skilled in creating stuff like this could repair it."
Eric Lionheart: "…"
Sakha: "I don't know much about swords…" She turns to ORN. "Hostile?"
Cassandra Lionheart: "Sakha..My mother tried to kill me with the sword."
Fyl picks up Pak and looks him in the eyes.
Fyl: "No cheating, unless it's with someone I get to cheat with too."
Sakha: "… Maybe I'm not the best one to be talking to…"
Pak: "I-i wasn't cheating. T_T;"
ORN: "Ah, don't worry. Its ok, it was mostly against his will, right?"
ORN turns back to Sakha
Eric Lionheart: "ORN, you can't break it."
ORN: "They said the same thing about Bolt and the other spirits."
ORN: "If you can't break it, find out how."
Cassandra Lionheart: "Sahka…I rather talk to you right now, than anybody from my "family"…"
Cassandra Lionheart: "Excluding Eric, of course."
Pak: "Well, I got seduced, anyway."
Pak: "Also, he died."
Pak: "Sorry. ._."
Pak holds up the old picture of Juan for Fyl.
Sakha: "Well with a barrier you would use a Dispel on it if it was magical."
Eric Lionheart: "Dispel won't work on it."
Fyl: "…"
Sakha: "Did you try?"
Fyl: "Alright, I forgive you for him."
Eric Lionheart: "I know enough about White Magic to safely determine that it wouldn't work."
Fyl holds Pak VERY close. "But I get you tonight~."
Pak: "n.n;"
Pak: "A-alright…"
Hector chuckles. "Guess that's a little less we have to pay for the inn tonight."
Sakha: "If Dispel won't work it must be a higher level barrier but it uses a lot of power and can't be maintained long."
Eric Lionheart: "It is…but the user has alot of energy."
Trombe steps out of the water, picking up Fyl and Pak with its beak.
ORN: "Energy can be eliminated. Or added to overload."
Pak eep!
Sakha: "Sure but it has to be recast almost constantly to maintain.
Eric Lionheart: "ORN, I don't think it's a worry, compared to the moon that is getting closer to killing us all."
ORN: "That one WILL leave its lair eventually. Better to be ready and expecting it now, as with the trio, than lacking the capability later. Travel is meant for such discovery time"
Sakha: "All you need to do is prevent the person from casting spells or taking any action in the period between the spell ending and the next casting."
Pak looks up at TRombe. "Put us down? >_>"
ORN nods and sparkles at Sakha
Trombe - belatedly - lets Pak and Fyl land on the ground.
ORN: "See? You require more optimism about your violence. Sakha had an answer!"
Cassandra Lionheart: "There is more important things right now…Lets drop the subject and get where we need to go please."
???: "If you're talking about who I think you're talking about - just leave her alone."
Pak yelps, landing on all fours. He shakes himself off like a dog.
ORN: "Unacceptable, it attempted to kill Cassie."
An elderly, but tough, human lady emerges from the cave, walking in the party's direction.
Cassandra_Lionheart looks up to see where the voice came from
ORN: "hm?"
Eric and Cassandra recognize her.
Sakha: "I was just offering professional opinion, thank you very much."
Cassandra Lionheart: "Hi…um.."Auntie"."
Eric Lionheart: "Mom, what a unexpected surprise! We was just coming to see you."
The lady bops Cassandra on the head. "I told you, just call me Cleo."
ORN: "? ? ?"
ORN: "Ah?"
Cassandra_Lionheart rubs her forehead and sighs "Okay, Cleo."
Hector scratches the back of his head. "Wow, pretty convenient for ya to show up, Cassie's Aunt."
Cleo smiles. "I've been hearing about your exploits. When someone saw Trombe headed this way, there was only one group it could be."
Cleo frowns. "Let me guess. You met with Alexandra and now you want to kill her, huh?"
Pak: "I don't, but I didn't meet her."
ORN: "Want? Must"
Pak rolls atop Fyl, trying to dry her off.
Cassandra Lionheart: "I don't care anymore." *shows her the family sword* "this is more important."
Fyl smiles, and lets Pak take his time drying her.
ORN: "It attempted to kill Cassie, using that. And rather large amounts of incineration"
ORN: "And Eric, seeing as he was also in the room."
ORN: "But Sakha has an answer so it will be alright."
Eric Lionheart: "Actually, I don't think she aimed anything at me."
Cassandra_Lionheart begins to sob
Eric Lionheart: "What happened to drive her to violate her oath?"
Cleo folds her arms. "I…see. Well…let's just say, how easily I guessed, you can guess about her relations with those she DOES still consider family."
Cassandra Lionheart: "I saw…She treated Eric with respect."
Pak towl towl.
Riia shakes her head
Cleo: "What DIDN'T happen? First she gets estranged from her husband. Then her daughter takes up fighting. Then her husband dies. Then we all try to defend Cassandra. THEN she finds out he's been 'cheating' on her."
Pak er, towel towel.
Riia holds up a sign: "Pretended respect"
Cleo: "Oh, and in the middle of all that, King dies and her insider line on power vanishes."
[OOC] ORN: its not cheating if he already left
Hector: "No kiddding."
Riia follows that with "Respect listens"
ORN: "Insider line?"
Cassandra_Lionheart hears all that and sighs
[OOC] ORN: so she was cheating too
Eric Lionheart: "It might have been a good thing I neglected to mention I've been traveling with Cassandra as of late."
Sakha: "As in she was in kahoots with the royal line and the powers of Bolt."
Hector: "So she doesn't have much left, does she?"
Cleo: "Nope. I've already run the diagnostics."
Cleo: "If she's left alone - which Regent seems quite intent on making happen - I'd say she's got two, maybe three weeks left before she just…stops."
ORN: "… … Did she have anything positive running for her? One would Think she had joined the trio by now"
ORN: "Ah?"
Cassandra_Lionheart sighs "What a sad end…for a sad woman."
Cleo looks aside. "Dying of heartbreak's always a shame. But I don't think there's anything to be done if she won't accept help, and she won't."
Hector: "Figures."
Sakha: "Stops? You make it sound like she's running out like the duration of a spell."
Cassandra_Lionheart goes silent and looks down
ORN: "Physical and magical shielding was being upkept around the entire mansion perimiter, so perhaps that is exactly the case?"
ORN looks at Sakha for confirmation/answer
Cleo: "She's been abusing magic to make herself look younger, among…other things."
Cleo: "If she hadn't, she'd have at least another decade or two, most likely. But lately she hasn't even been caring."
Hector: "Look younger…why? Is she off bangin' young guys all day 'n night or something?"
Sakha: "… Magic to affect age and time… hmmm… I've done a bit of study on that…"
Cleo smirks at Hector. "You'd think so. But no, she just does it without gaining from it."
ORN: "So such effects accelerate aging?"
Cleo: "They can if done without care."
ORN: "How does aging work anyways?"
Cassandra_Lionheart nods
[OOC] Hector: Orn's seriously not talking like he used to.
Cleo: "If done right, they CAN extend lives. But the way she's gone at it…"
Eric Lionheart: "She doesn't even care about the oath she swore it would seem. Had I not come along, I think ORN, Cassandra and Riia here would be dead."
Hector makes an o_O face.
[OOC] ORN: he's gained a good 30 points in common since the early days.
Riia taps ORN's shoulder and explains cell reproduction
[OOC] ORN: oh wait, no, that's elvaan. still some good points in common too though.
ORN stares at Riia and reads .
[OOC] Riia: Oooh, I wonder if Riia would carry pamphlets for times like this.
Cassandra Lionheart: "anyways, Cleo, why have you come to see us here?"
Cleo: "But it's more her heart - and I don't mean the organ - that's running out."
Cleo: "Oh, I figured you'd want to see me, and I thought I could use a break."
Cassandra_Lionheart nods, and hugs Cleo "Finally another Lionheart whom I can hug."
Cleo: "There's so much going on. Mountainsburg's become the central meeting point for…everyone."
Riia nods…
Riia points north, south, and down
Cleo nods at Riia. "And then there's the viera, too."
[OOC] Hector: http:/‘`/zip.4chan.org/m/res/``1997994.html ongoing worksafe Kos-Mos thread, if anyone cares.
Eric Lionheart: "I did…I wanted to tell you that I’m going to continue traveling with Cassandra and everyone else. I think I can make a great difference by going with them."
Sakha: "Not the Organ…? Does that mean that emotional love is like a spell?"
Hector chuckles. "Not quite."
ORN: "Then it could be powering those barriers."
Cleo: "Her magic's linked in to her emotions, I'll tell you that much."
Pak fluffs Fyl. "Okay, all dry~"
Fyl grins. "Aww, done so soon, my Pak~?" She wraps her tail around him.
Cleo: "Say, Cass. That's the old sword she had over the fireplace, right?"
Sakha: "Is that true for everyone, or just her?"
Cleo nods at Eric. "I think you can. IF you can get up there."
Pak: "Well, I'm still kinda damp myself…"
Cleo: "Depends on the person. More true for her than for most people."
Cassandra Lionheart: "Yes it is."
Cassandra_Lionheart shows what it is now to cleo
Fyl leers at Pak. "Then let me give you a very…thorough…drying." She picks up Pak and walks a short distance away, in private.
Eric_Lionheart holds up one of the pieces. "I plan to research the pieces and see if I can determine any power it might have had."
Pak eeeps!
Cleo: "Hmm. I'm guessing you'll want it reforged."
Cassandra_Lionheart nods "Please."
Hector watches Pak get carried off.
Cleo holds out her hands. "Hand it over. I know some armorers who owe me a few favors."
ORN: "Ah, please tell them to ensure it does not shatter on impact"
Cassandra_Lionheart gives Cleo the pieces of the sword "Thank you."
Cleo: "They've had to expand their shop lately; I've been investing in them. Apparently you had something to do with it."
ORN: "… … . them? This Group? … That would mean…"
Cleo: "That's what they told me, anyway."
Eric_Lionheart hands over the piece he was studying, seeming a bit down at losing what he was researching.
ORN goes dark
Cleo: "You know a Mignon Rose, Mignon Lilas, or Noir?"
ORN: "… . ."
Cassandra Lionheart: "Yup."
Pak: "H-hey… ./‘`/``/."
ORN: "Handing it over may not be the wisest of choices…"
Hector: "How conveniently coincidental."
Cleo: "What do you mean? Their work seems on the up and up."
[OOC] ORN: its gonna have a booooow
[OOC] Hector: the hilt is going to be metal wrought around to LOOK like a bow.
[OOC] WC GM: What Hector said, maybe. It’s a two handed sword, so have the hilt have grips for two hands.
[OOC] Sakha: well we know where artifact weapon for Cassie is coming from
Cassandra Lionheart: "Anyways…I feel the sword will be useful again to all of us."
[OOC] Cassandra Lionheart: yup
Cleo: "Hopefully. So anyway. You guys are heading up to the sky?"
Riia nods
Eric Lionheart: "That was the plan at least."
Cassandra Lionheart: "Yes we are. We need to hurry though."
Eric Lionheart: "But it would appear it might take too long for the way up to be made…"
Cleo looks upwards. Very few large clouds are apparent. The small ones shift hither and yon.
Sakha: "I have not been able to master magic to let me fly unfortunately."
Cleo: "Well, when you DO get up there, there's obviously some kind of battle going on."
ORN: "… … … Trombe Unit's boost system"
ORN: "What would it take to allow the Trombe Unit sustained flight under its own power?"
Trombe: "Negative. Large jumps equal maximum altitude gain."
Cassandra Lionheart: "We know. The three stooges are up there stirring trouble..And we were used from the begining by Grav."
ORN: "Trombe Unit, calculate required modifications for reaching required altitudes"
ORN: "Assume Overlay"
Trombe: "Calculating…"
Trombe: "Outcome…possible."
Trombe: "Success not guaranteed. Failure not guaranteed."
Cassandra_Lionheart sits silently
ORN: "Odds therefore greater than waiting. Specify."
Riia hmms
Hector: "Hm."
Hector: "We have courage, though. And with courage, even a one percent chance becomes a hundred percent."
[OOC] Pak: SAFETY NOT GUARENTEED
[OOC] Pak: push it to the limit~
[OOC] ORN: well, that part never is ;p
Cassandra_Lionheart looks at Hector and smiles "True. I think we have to try…For our home!"
Trombe: "Maximum likelihood if unit ORN focuses all boost into leg components."
Eric Lionheart: "Would my magic be of any help, Trombe? Maybe my wind magic can give us a extra boost."
ORN: "Phase Three integration may add to this. All power shunted to leg components, with additional overlay area to lift surfaces. Estimated chance of success?"
ORN nods at Eric
Pak yelps from someplace.
Cassandra_Lionheart hears Pak and blinks
Trombe: "Including boost from unit Eric, calculate…sixty seven percent odds of success."
ORN looks at Hector
ORN nods
Hector: "Sounds like a hundred to me."
Eric Lionheart: "And what happens if we fail?"
Trombe: "Fall."
Trombe: "From unsurvivable height."
Trombe: "Including all foreseeable descent buffers."
Cassandra Lionheart: "…beautiful."
Eric Lionheart: "…I really need to figure out how to consistantly protect us from physical based things, like falling."
ORN: "Excellent. Combined effectiveness of Trombe Unit, Eric and This Unit to 67%, multiplied by this supposed 'courage' factor of x100, and therefore an effective success chance of approximately 670%."
Cassandra_Lionheart lookd at ORN and sighs
Eric Lionheart: "…I like ORN's calculations."
[OOC] Hector: Now you're thinking like Taiga.
Trombe: "Error: 6700%."
ORN: "Ah. Miscalculation. 6700. Appologies."
Hector: "…can Orn actually miscalculate?"
Cassandra Lionheart: "Anything any of us can do to help bolster the percentage to our advantage?"
Eric Lionheart: "Hmm…if only I had something to further increse my magical power.
Eric Lionheart: "
ORN: "It is already far above guaranteed, Cassie."
Cassandra_Lionheart looks at ORN, then back to Trombe "What about my Power Wave?"
Eric Lionheart: "Hmm…Sakha, are you capible of wind based magic as well?"
ORN looks at Eric
Trombe: "Advise all possible boosts. Also, scouting to find solid landing locations."
ORN: "Float"
Eric Lionheart: "Maybe if we combine our strengths we can further increse the odds of success."
ORN points at Hector
ORN: "Scouting. Radio."
Sakha: "Yes, and if someting goes wrong I can slow descent… I however would prefer to wait on the moogle's invention."
Cassandra_Lionheart nods to Eric and Trombe
Cleo: "Wait a minute. You're…talking about jumping? Into the CLOUDS?!?"
Hector: "Ah, that's right!"
ORN nods at Cleo
ORN: "Affirmative, why?"
Cassandra Lionheart: "Yes Cleo."
Eric Lionheart: "Yes mom. I know it sounds utterly crazy."
Cleo: "…where do you think you'll land?"
Hector takes the radio out and presses the comm button. "Hey, Aerie. Hectorhere."
Eric Lionheart: "But these people…have done things I thought might be impossible."
Hector gets nothing but static.
ORN: "The Aerie should be able to provide landing coordinates."
ORN: "… ah"
Cassandra Lionheart: "Um…"
Hector: "…that doesn't sound good."
Cassandra Lionheart: "They must have…"
Eric Lionheart: "Lets not assume the worst."
Sakha: "So no way to know where to land, we need to use the moogle's device to search the skies."
ORN: "Interference or jamming caused by Combat conditions most likely. They may be too busy to chat."
Hector puts it back into his pocket. "Probably couldn't get rid of it if i tried."
[OOC] Hector: 'cause it's a key item? get it? I SUCK.
Cassandra Lionheart: "Well, no gusts of wind to stop us yet, so…Hopefully she is fighting the madness."
Eric Lionheart: "…Why not see if the moogle's device can be intergrated into Trombe to speed up things?"
Cassandra Lionheart: "Why not? Sounds like a good idea."
ORN: "Static or intereference may increase as a suitable spot is approached."
ORN: "The highest point in the nearby region would be the tip of the volcannon, also providing something of a launch angle would it not?"
Eric Lionheart: "Do we even have time to travel to the Volcannon?"
Trombe: "Trombe unit inquired of Kupostein. Integration of rocket unit not possible prior to rocket unit completion."
ORN: "Trombe Unit's auxilary engines should provide adequate thrust."
ORN looks at the party
Cassandra Lionheart: "Okay then…What now?"
ORN: "If nothing else is required at the moment, Self-destruct and launch"
ORN kneels on the Trombe Unit
Trombe: "Reccomend gathering remainder of party first."
Cassandra_Lionheart looks at ORN and blinks
Cassandra Lionheart: "Yeah, Pak..Remember?"
Cleo: "Umm. Wait, even if you're going up there…"
Eric Lionheart: "We are going to try it now?"
ORN: "Ah, are they still occupied?"
Eric Lionheart: "Maybe we should do some shopping first."
ORN looks at Eric's mother
ORN: "?"
Cassandra Lionheart: "Yeah."
ORN nods at Eric and stands
Hector: "We'll set out first thing in the morning, then."
Eric Lionheart: "And it would appear mom has some sort of concern…"
Sakha: "Shopping and research."
Cleo counts on her fingers.
Hector: "We may not get a chance for a long time after today, so we should make the best of it."
ORN: "Very well. Please allow to time the launch to the moon's passing; additional attraction may provide increased chances."
Sakha: If we need to take time off from the adventure, must make the most of it."
Cleo: "…you'd be taking Fakir with you, right?"
Sakha: "Yes. You know him?"
ORN: "… . . hm…."
Eric Lionheart: "It might be wise to have as much help as possible."
Cleo: "I've heard of him. Geomancer, quite taken with Ahiru, right?"
ORN: "However, with Ahiru present, Aer could be sealed were This Group forced to combat him…"
Cleo: "And vice versa, from what I've been hearing."
Cassandra Lionheart: "Yes."
Cleo frowns. "You really might want to leave Fakir here, then."
Eric Lionheart: "Hmm? Why mom?"
Riia raises an eyebrow
Hector: "We'll have to pry Ahiru off of him first."
Sakha: "Knowing Fakir I understand, but it's surprising you know about Ahiru. She hasn't been around long."
Riia raises a sign: "But she's King"
Cassandra Lionheart: "She is alot, Riia."
Cleo looks at Eric. "Remember your studies, my son. Geomancers draw their power from the terrain around them."
Sakha: "Who has been in the palace for a total of 4 days since that was announced.
Cleo: "What kind of terrain is in the skies?"
ORN: "Empty, and excellent for line of sight"
Cleo nods. "Exactly."
ORN: "Ah. But Eric had not yet seen Fakir consuming ground had he?"
Cleo: "So what do you think would happen to a geomancer up there?"
Cassandra Lionheart: "Nothing."'
Eric Lionheart: "I have not seen that…but she might be right. A Geomancer would be effectively useless."
ORN: "… Would he not use the air?"
ORN: "Or whichever surfaces those in that region make use of?"
Cassandra Lionheart: "No…He needs the earth to attack, ORN."
Cleo: "Worse."
Cleo: "Without ground to draw from, he'd be…fragile."
Hector: "Hm."
Sakha: "But we'd be fighting Air elementals. He would be able to draw on other elements."
Cassandra Lionheart: "So no to Fakir."
[OOC] Sakha: would not
Eric Lionheart: "Geomancers are limited for the most part to power drawn from the earth."
ORN: "Hm."
Eric Lionheart: "No earth, no power. No power, means we have to focus more on defending him if something comes up."
Cassandra_Lionheart nods and sighs
ORN: "If this allows for the amulet to be out of range should Aer's elimination result, this could buy This Group far more time than previously expected. Perhaps days, even."
Sakha: "I thought that was your forte anyway, Eric?"
Hector: "While the rest of us are capable of defending ourselves, a defenseless Fakir would be an extreme liability that would certainly hinder us beyond any acceptable amount."
Hector: "It's not tactically sound."
Cassandra Lionheart: "That is very true. Fakir is better off here for now."
Sakha: "Maybe he can find out how to penetrate the barrier to get to the poles."
Cassandra Lionheart: "That is a good idea."
Riia frowns in thought
Hector: "Penetrate or eliminate."
Eric Lionheart: "As much as I'd like to research the poles myself, it would be best if I go with you people."
Sakha: "I'll have a lot to learn… Did Kupostein say how long his invention would take? I don't remember…"
Eric Lionheart: "Two weeks."
Riia wonders, though
Riia holds up: "Two weeks to moon"
Riia replaces that with "How long to cloud?"
Sakha: "Then two weeks to learn what we can…"
Cassandra_Lionheart sighs "We have to get up there now though."
ORN: "Minutes to hours at most if you hurry with the shopping"
Hector: "I said that we're leaving first thing in the morning, Orn."
Hector: "And that's final.
Hector: "
Trombe: "Trombe unit will retrieve Ahiru, if desired."
ORN: "Additionally, further methods to attaining the moon may be found in that area, shortening the two week delay"
Hector: "Please do." *he gets off of Trombe*
Trombe zooms off once everyone is off.
Cassandra_Lionheart jumps off Trombe and looks around "I'm hungry all of a sudden."
Sakha: "So… no time for study… some respite would have been nice…"
Cleo: "Say, where did those other two mithra run off to?"
Cleo: "Fyl and…Pak, was it?"
Hector: "Private time, I'm guessing."
Sakha: "…."
Cassandra Lionheart: "I heard Pak yelp earlier."
Pak emerges.
Pak: ">_>"
Pak: "I'm here!"
Sakha: "I DON'T CARE!" She blushes.
Fyl emerges behind Pak, smiling.
Pak: "What's up?"
Cassandra Lionheart: "Speak of the little devil."
Pak is dry.
[OOC] Riia: Mostly
[OOC] Pak: No, not mostly. There was a lot of drying. VERY dry.
Cassandra Lionheart: "How was it?" *smiles*
Pak: "I'm dry now. :p"
Pak: "Anyway, what were you talking about with Trombe?"
Cassandra Lionheart: "Excellent. Just in time for dinner."
Pak: "I overheard some weird, random things."
Cassandra Lionheart: "Oh just discussing how to get into the sky."
Pak: "Cool!"
Pak: "Are we sticking around tonight?"
Eric Lionheart: "We have a 6700% chance of reaching the sky, according to ORN and Trombe."
Cassandra Lionheart: "Well, Trombe is going back to get Ahiru so..I guess so."
Pak: "…That's pretty good."
Pak nods.
Pak: "Alright, then what are our plans for the rest of the day?"
Riia looks from Pak to Fyl
Cassandra_Lionheart looks to Eric "and the same percentage to fall and die."
[OOC] ORN: and hector. so hope he's right on the 1»100 thing ;p
Eric Lionheart: "I suppose do whatever…I'm going to stock up and spend sometime with mom, maybe see how the rest of the family is doing."
Cleo: "Well, Primeira's daughter wanted to personally thank-"
Cassandra Lionheart: "Oh?"
Fyl grabs Pak protectively and GLARES and Cleo.
[OOC] Riia: ORN: several GFs and a progambler, we're good
Cleo: "…aaah, right."
Riia grins
Riia holds a sign: "Sniffer?"
Cleo: "That's her name."
Riia grins wider
Cassandra Lionheart: "Oh Sniffer. She got up here huh?"
ORN: "Hm"
ORN: "She and Fyl would get along quite well"
Cleo: "We're going to have a dinner tonight. Representatives of all the races you've helped so far."
Cleo: "Of course you'll be there."
Riia nods
Eric Lionheart: "Sounds good to me."
Cassandra_Lionheart nods and her stomach growls.
ORN: "… Did the non-creators bring architectural sections with them?"
Cleo: "We'll set up in the main arcade behind the waterfall."
Cleo: "Be there about 6 PM, will you?"
Cleo: "Ah - right, you eat rock."
Hector: "No problem."
Cassandra_Lionheart nods and smiles
Cleo: "Some of the dwarves said they'd been picking out samples for you to try."
Cleo: "…can you really eat a quarter ton in one sitting?"
Cleo looks at ORN.
ORN nods
Cassandra_Lionheart looks at ORN and blinks
Pak sweatdrops.
Pak: ">_>"
ORN: "Rate increases slowly, possibly as This Unit improves"
Pak: "Oh… sniffer…"
Pak sweatdrops, looking over to Fyl. "Er… >_>;"
ORN: "However, Non-replacement assimilations can require direct outpout of excess mass, which can cause for something of a hazard zone"
Fyl: "I've already talked to her. You and she are friends." Fyl looks Pak in the eyes. "And it's going to stay that way, right~?"
Pak: "R-right… n.n;"
[OOC] ORN: yeah pak, be GOOD to her too ^_~
Fyl grins. "Good~."
Pak pouts… When'd Fyl suddenly become possessive? End of the world and all must be getting to her. >_>
Cleo: "They…mentioned something about that. We'll have a special place set up for you."
Cleo: "Oh, Pak. You might want to know that Fyl's been hearing stories."
Pak: "Stories? o.o"
Cassandra Lionheart: "Orn…It you become 3X the normal size…i don't think Trombe can hold you up."
Pak: "About what?"
Riia grins and traces her ears
ORN: "However This Unit may then be able to hold the Trombe Unit Up"
Eric Lionheart: "ORN, maybe incresing your mass…unless it can help increse our already considerable odds…is a bad idea…"
Cleo: "Something about you being…shared…wherever you go." She winks.
Pak: "H-hey…"
Cassandra_Lionheart laughs
ORN looks at Eric
Fyl: "Don't worry. I'll make QUITE sure he comes back to me~."
Pak: "I didn't share anything with the dwarves or elves… T_T;"
Fyl's grin shows off sharp teeth.
[OOC] Riia: That's true. Pak is our favorite currency.
Pak: "I'm an ear man!"
ORN: "Said additional mass could be used to form a larger lift surface, and shed explosively for additional velocity boosts."
Pak crosses his arms over his chest.
Pak: "…Or something."
Cassandra Lionheart: "Heh, Pak, your so cute when flustered."
Pak: "Wait, no, that would INCLUDE elves. Dang it."
Cleo: "Oh really? The elvaan said you handled your fishing pole quite well~."
Pak: "…Eh?"
Cassandra_Lionheart laughs a bit louder now
Pak sweatdrops. "Wait, I seriously don't remember…"
Pak: "…Have people been saying things that aren't true? D:"
[OOC] ORN: like the old V1 'buzz bombs' ;p
[OOC] Hector: MAXIMUM D:
ORN: "It is only natural Pak's exploits and persuasive ability would be known throughout the land by now."
Sakha: "Did you go fishing for those Lava Fish Pak?"
Pak: "Oh, I did."
Sakha: "I doubt the Elvaan would have used such a double entendre."
Hector: "It was an actual fishing pole."
Pak: "Yeah, I caught Lava Fish~"
CleoAndFyl: "Oh."
Hector: "Trust me on this one, alright?"
Cleo and Fyl blink.
Cassandra Lionheart: "Then Pak you are a master baiter." *smiles*
Cleo: "The way they described it…"
ORN: "All races appear to find Pak attractive enough to violate"
Pak: "…"
[OOC] Sakha: BAD Keith
Pak: "…"
Cleo gives Cassandra a LOOK.
Eric_Lionheart shakes his head. "The conversations I overhear…"
Pak: "…How did they describe it? o_o;"
Cassandra Lionheart: "What? What?"
Pak: "Bleh!"
Riia is wracked with silent laughter
Pak: "I haven't even slept with any elvaan and I'm getting in trouble for it?! T_T;"
Cleo sighs and shakes her head. "Never mind."
Pak looks annoyed.
Hector: "That's probably the price of being universally appealing."
Pak looks over at Fyl. ">_> If you find a nice elf girl you like, sleep with her for me, okay?"
Cassandra Lionheart: "No, Pak..They just said you handled the worms well."
Fyl: "No."
Pak: "…Fine. T_T"
ORN: "Perhaps due to being surrounded by forceful, eager students at all times"
ORN nods at Cassie
Cleo gives Cassandra another look.
[OOC] Sakha: * Dianel walks by, looks at them with a raised eyebrow and moves on.
Pak: "Anyway, we'll deal with all that later."
Cleo then looks at Eric. "Has she always been this way, or did she pick that up to cope with her travels?"
Cassandra Lionheart: "What? I was just saying he knows how to use the shaft well."
Eric Lionheart: "I have no idea. I only found her after the whole lava thing."
Cleo rolls her eyes.
ORN: "This Unit has learned a lot from Cassie."
Cassandra Lionheart: "Nevermind…He is a good fisherman."
Cassandra_Lionheart looks at ORN "Not that again!"
[OOC] ORN: keep digging girl, keep digging
Pak: "…"
Pak: "So, what should we do until the banquet?"
Pak looks at the sun, estimating the time.
[OOC] ORN: she'd fit right into SDK with that kind of shovel
[OOC] Cassandra Lionheart: o.o
Fyl: "How about Pak and I get…reacquainted~?"
Fyl begins to drag Pak away.
Cassandra_Lionheart laughs
Pak yelps as he's dragged off.
Pak: "Y-you guys go shopping or something! x.x"
Cassandra Lionheart: "Have fun Pak!"
Hector chuckles.
ORN waves, sparkling brightly
Cleo: "Fine, you're on leave for the rest of today, Fyl."
Cassandra Lionheart: "He has her hook, line, and sinker."
Cleo shakes her head. "A good guard, but honestly, when it comes to love…"
Cassandra_Lionheart looks at Cleo and sighs
ORN: "He does that to guardswomen"
ORN: "Or they do that to him. Uncertain now."
Eric Lionheart: "I believe I will stock up on supplies, and see if newer equipment can be purchased for myself in a effort to strengthen my magical power."
Eric Lionheart: "I'd like to get our chance of success even higher if I can."
ORN walks off to gather a handful of supplies and wait for the Trombe Unit
Cassandra Lionheart: "I..am…hungry." *holds her stomach*
Riia hmms, but will go buy cooking supplies…
[OOC] Riia: Gotta test out the AutoCookie!
Cassandra Lionheart: "Cleo, can we talk, please?"
Hector turns to Sakha. "Just us, then."
Hector: "Think we should hit up a few vendors and see if we can't get prepped for our next conflict?"
Sakha gives Hector a LOOK.
Sakha: "You can hold my bags then." She says and stalks off looking for a bargain.
[OOC] Riia: =D
Hector quirks an eyebrow up. "Hey, if you really want me to…" and follows her.
Cleo: "I don't think she meant THOSE bags."
Hector wasn't even thinking about THOSE bags. Geez, he can't catch a break.
[OOC] Riia: That or Mistress Cleo is as big a perv as Cassie
[OOC] WC GM: She's worried about where Cassandra learned it from, and she knows Cass is one of Hector's bandits
[OOC] WC GM: Anyway, that appears to have wrapped it up for today. 10250 XP each.
[OOC] ORN: no, no, if you look at it from an ORN series perspective the one link between all of these is that there's a lionheart involved
