EC Session 6.2

Morning, Merch 1 Gravday.
Trombe has been transported up to the mountain plateau above Mountainsburg's waterfall.
Quite a few people have gathered to see the party off.
Snow and ice decorate the landscape - a stark contrast to the visible lava flows on the volcanos not too far away.
The party can see the shells of some of the bot sentinels, defeated so long ago.
Riia wonders if there are any salvageable parts on those
There are - but low-quality compared to the parts she has been able to buy outright, with the races coming together.
[OOC] Hector: "So long ago"? Hasn't it only been a month and a half at most?
[OOC] Riia: It's been a long month and a half
[OOC] WC GM: About that time. And yet so much has happened, from the party's point of view, since then.
[OOC] Eric Lionheart: Seems to me each session is roughly a day, am I right?
Pak is looking about…
[OOC] ORN: yeah but its been like 270 game hours ;p
[OOC] WC GM: Each chapter is about a week - and a week in this setting is 10 days.
[OOC] Eric Lionheart: ORN, it takes that long to get all the bonus content!
Fyl is part of the security, keeping the well wishers from mobbing the party.
[OOC] Hector: So on this planet, the average human lifespan is still the same number of years despite the years having more days?
Fyl winks and waves to Pak.
[OOC] Riia: Conflict of interest
[OOC] WC GM: Actually, the years have about the same number of days.
Cassandra_Lionheart looks to see if Cleo or any other Lionhearts are there.
[OOC] Hector: You're no fun.
[OOC] ORN: eric's there cassie
[OOC] WC GM: Ten days per week, three weeks per month, ten months per year - 300 days per year…perhaps slightly longer days, though.
[OOC] Cassandra Lionheart: Yeah, but Cassie does have another sister
Hector is quite surprised to see his uncle Joseph in the crowd.
[OOC] ORN: they're rpg days so much longer. till you go to bed.
Eric_Lionheart hmms thoughtfully.
Pak meeps and blushes, waving to Fyl.
Cassandra only sees her cousin and her adopted brother, of her family.
Ahiru wonders why there are so many people.
Hector leans forward on Trombe, propping himself up on the sides of his arms.
Cassandra_Lionheart looks and sighs "Well, just us Lionhearts to the rescue this time."
Pak: "n.n;"
Riia wonders idly which of her family are still alive
Cassandra_Lionheart points at ORN and Eric and smiles "Lets do this."
Sakha scans the crowd and frowns at them thinking they're all bootlickers.
Pak climbs onto Trombe. "x.x"
Pak: "I'm exhausted…"
Regent is, of course, there. "We still don't know what's safe to land on."
Eric Lionheart: "Eh, more then just us, Cassandra. We all gotta work togetter to save the world."
Riia shrugs and crosses her fingers
Regent: "But the closest clouds are to the north."
[OOC] Riia: Holds them up crossed, that is.
Cassandra Lionheart: "Right. We are just a working part in this team right now."
Regent shrugs. "The moogles who came here lost all records of what their old civilization was like. You could be facing anything."
ORN: "All landings are safe using This Unit's legs."
Sakha hmphs.
Regent looks up, as another cloud is torn apart. "And then there's that."
Pak: "Don't worry too much."
Riia frowns
Cassandra Lionheart: "We have faced worse Regent. But we got each other, and we will over come anything!"
ORN: "Barring minor amounts of shattering"
Felicia: "We'll make due."
Eric Lionheart: "…That could be a small issue it seems."
Pak: "If worst comes to worst, Sakha can cast Float, or I can cast teleport."
Regent nods. "I'd suggest you be prepared to do just that."
Riia checks the pouch that holds her drogue rounds
Eric Lionheart: "I can reduce the damage of the fall with my protective magic."
Cassandra Lionheart: "I…well.."
Riia petpets Cassie
Sakha: "Don't force yourself."
Eric Lionheart: "You can stab things if something attacks us, Cassie."
ORN: "As you can see, Regent, the worst-case scenario therefore involves successful assault landings versus the local ground, followed by additional attempts."
Cassandra_Lionheart looks around, and blinks, getting petted by Riia "Kick ass and take name?" *shrugs her shoulders*
Hector: "We'll be fine. And if we're not, well, at least we died trying." *said without even turning his head*
Riia blinks a little at Sakha's comment, then smiles briefly at her
Pak waves to Fyl once more.
Pak: "Okay! We'll be back soon, hopefully!"
Cassandra Lionheart: "Well..Lets get this show on the road."
Eric Lionheart: "Don't we have close to a 6700% chance, according to ORN's calculations anyways? I don't think we should worry too much about dying."
ORN: "Trombe Unit, prepare for overlay installation. Initiating self-destruct."
Pak: "Okay!"
Riia pulls a pair of goggles that show signs of care, age, and little use…
Hector: "'sides, Eric, we've got your protection and whatever Sakha feels like throwin' our way."
Fyl waves back - only for some other mithra to shoot her glares of INTENSE jealousy.
ORN hops onto the Trombe Unit's head, kneels for a moment and detonates himself
Riia grins fiercely, pulls them over her eyes, and waves Regent back before taking her place on the suborbital rocket.
[OOC] Riia: That's right, baby, the rocket goggles are ON!
Sakha shoots a LOOK at Hector and throws an ice needle at his butt.
[OOC] WC GM: And what, exactly, do the goggles do? :P
Cassandra_Lionheart mouths a small prayer of protection, takes a deep breath, and closes her eyes
[OOC] ORN: absolutely nothing
Eric Lionheart: "Preparing my wind based magic to assist."
Pak …
[OOC] Riia: Look cool
Pak sweatdrops. "That's not ominous! I won't be assaulted by other girl mithra the moment I return, not at all! >_>;"
ORN showers down onto the area, trying to avoid bystanders, the shards slowly pulling together towards the Trombe Unit's legs, head and side-sections
Fyl melts into the crowd to escape the glares.
[OOC] Riia: Heck, the glass has probably fallen out
Hector doesn't even bat an eyelash. He knows Sakha doesn't mean it.
Security has kept the bystanders far enough away that ORN has no problem avoiding them.
ORN slowly reforms into a small chocobo-helm, leg exoskeleton and gets to work on a set of four long crystaline wings
Sakha growls at being ignored and throws another one at his chest.
Cassandra Lionheart: "No worries. We are on our way!"
[OOC] Hector: Riia < Rita
[OOC] Hector: Sorry, it's true.
[OOC] Riia: Rita?
[OOC] ORN: yeah but you have to respond to it anyways hector.
[OOC] ORN: you know the saying: even if she's absolutely wrong, YOU'RE SORRY.
[OOC] ORN: ;p
[OOC] Hector: She's from Tales of Vesperia. She also has goggles. But is a mage, and a tsundere. And voiced by Michelle Ruff.
Pak pouts and melts the ice with a bit of fire. "Stop stabbing Hector!"
[OOC] Riia: Eh, the goggles come off once the flight is over.
[OOC] Sakha: Haet Tales. It needs to stick to one system series *sob*
ORN: "Exoskeletal overlay generation complete. Deploying flight surfaces. Trombe Unit, please advise of any irregularities in movement"
Sakha sticks her tongue out at Pak and harumphs
Hector: "Mm." *looks down at the melting ice on his shirt* "Well, it did need kind of a washing."
[OOC] Hector: Legendia should have stayed in Japan, so we could get Rebirth or Destiny 2.
Felicia: "And a hole in it."
Hector: "It'll be fine."
Hector: "Call it a gut feeling."
Cassandra_Lionheart tries to block out the extra noise..only being concerned with the flight that is about to happen.
[OOC] WC GM: * The GM groans. ^_^;
[OOC] Riia: Don't worry, Hector isn't metagaming. He just can't conceive of failing. =p
[OOC] ORN: at best it'll be a flight like the wright brothers was a flight. ;p
[OOC] WC GM: No, I mean at "gut".
[OOC] ORN: successful ;p
[OOC] WC GM: Considering where the ice needle melted on?
[OOC] WC GM: Anyway.
[OOC] Hector: Hector's pointing out that his clothes are mysteriously repaired shortly after being torn in combat.
[OOC] Hector: So he's more genre-savvy than anything.
Pak sticks his tongue back out at Sakha. "Myuuuu"~
[OOC] ORN: don't you people generate replacements by eating too? so really, clothes are a non-issue when its not fashion-related ^^;;;
[OOC] WC GM: …there are standard enchantments on armor to mend minor holes. What plot holes? >_>
Sakha snaps a static shock on Pak's tail.
Pak k-kyah~!
ORN decides to prod a little into systemic assimilation for the Trombe Unit, to see if the defense system from last time is still around
Cassandra_Lionheart sighs and opens her eyes
Riia frowns at the mithras
Sakha grins and settles down satisfied.
Trombe: "All systems ready. Will proceed on command."
Riia gets low and tries to brace both mithras
ORN finds no defense system.
[OOC] Riia: Wonder if that's what Primeira's people fixed
ORN: "Trombe Unit, deploy auxilary boosters for integration attempt"
[OOC] WC GM: Trombe's been through two completely different sets of mechanics. It's a small wonder it's still working at all.
Trombe: "Boosters deployed. Integration complete."
Trombe's jet engines emerge from its sides.
ORN shortens the wings a little, aims them a bit further back, and gives the engines some feed off his own mana channels
Pak prepares, crouching…!
Riia savors the prelaunch feeling….
Eric Lionheart: "Hmm. Well, this ought to be intresting at least."
Trombe: "Reaction started. Confirm readiness to proceed with transit."
Felicia leans back…
Riia nods
ORN: "Redirecting Whitecannon methods to boosters. All friendlies, shock advisory. Trombe Unit, initiate launch."
Hector is holding on.
Cassandra_Lionheart braces against Eric and nods
Trombe MOVES.
Pak kyaah!
Running and jet engines at full blast - the initial shock of acceleration is soon replaced by the steady press of further acceleration.
It almost feels like gravity has tilted, pressing the party against Trombe's giant saddle's back.
Pak g-guuu!
Riia holds on tight to Pak, a huge grin on her face
Eric Lionheart: "Aaa…what incredible pressure…!"
Before long, gravity tilts more, as Trombe begins running up the side of the largest volcano in the area.
Cassandra_Lionheart continues to hold against Eric and breathes slowly.
The ground below changes from snow to rock to molten lava. Trombe barely seems to notice.
In the distance, the inner moon appears, heading towards the group.
Trombe: "Timing launch to match nearest approach of Grav."
Ahiru: "…"
The moon gets nearer - Trombe reaches the top and LEAPS…
ORN: "Be advised of possible gravitic interference, possible reversal in case of direct assault."
Cassandra_Lionheart does not glance and braces more…poor Eric…
[OOC] Hector: Gravity slingshot, huh.
[OOC] Riia: If the shoe fits
[OOC] ORN: yeah but with a chance of direct backlash if we're too much in his sphere of influence
The moon passes directly overhead. Gravity lightens, pulling the group further upwards, as the volcano erupts beneath them, lava not quite managing to reach the party.
Riia crawls forwards on Trombe, looking for the cloud they are headed towards
A triple-layer cloud appears ahead. Trombe's arc will barely intersect the top one.
Eric Lionheart: "Tell me…when you need a extra boost from my wind magic…!"
Trombe: "Current moment would be appropriate."
Pak: "Moon's right above us…!"
ORN: "Eric: Target The Trombe Unit, directly upwards from below."
ORN: "Twin blasts focused on Overlay, if possible."
The inner moon passes by as quickly as it arrived, and gravity returns to normal.
But the group is in near freefall, only Trombe's boosted jets providing some - minimal - acceleration. It will not be enough to keep the party aloft.
Cassandra Lionheart: "…think fast.."
Hector: "Better make with the uplifting, anyone who can!"
Riia points ahead at the cloud, which it seems like Trombe is no longer gonna make…
Pak m-meep! "T-try and land on the cloud!"
Cassandra Lionheart: "Maybe a fated circle?"
ORN detonates part of the lower-feet overlay downwards for a little extra
Eric_Lionheart casts his wind magic to try to help do as he was asked.
ORN gets to work on shifting the remaining upper-leg mass to extend the gliding surfaces
[OOC] WC GM: Eric & ORN: MAG check
Cassandra_Lionheart fires off a fated circle, exploding the chi right at the same time the wind magic goes off
[OOC] ORN: I suck at mag ^^:;;
[OOC] WC GM: Cassandra too
ORN rolled 1d100 and got 29 ( Total: 29 )
[OOC] ORN: only failed by 7!
Cassandra Lionheart rolled 1d100 and got 6 for a total of 6
[OOC] Cassandra Lionheart: pass by 31
Eric Lionheart rolled 1d100 and got 6 for a total of 6
[OOC] Felicia: lololol
ORN's detonation helps a bit. Cassandra's and Eric's efforts help a LOT more.
[OOC] Eric Lionheart: Pass by over nine thousand.
Trombe easily arcs right into the middle of the top cloud - and drops through.
Riia bites her lip, peering down…
Cassandra Lionheart: "….Son of a….AGAIN!"
The party sees small ice crystals and water droplets, floating all around them.
Eric Lionheart: "…Incredible sight, though…"
ORN: "increased density area?"
Pak: "…E-er…"
And then the party is through the first cloud. The second cloud is coming up.
Pak: "…I-is Trombe too heavy?"
ORN: "Bracing"
Riia eyes the second cloud….
Cassandra_Lionheart goes for another fated circle!
Hector: "Hm. Could my lightning be used to fill somethin' with energy?"
Eric Lionheart: "I dunno, Hector. What was you thinking?"
Cassandra Lionheart: "I think if you aim it down, it will propulse us up a bit more! Anything will do right now!"
Hector: "Anythin' to give you guys some juice."
Eric_Lionheart is preparing another Aeraga to try to slow the descent.
Pak is just panicking. x.x
Eric_Lionheart consults his memories. Can lightning magic be useful in this case? (( Magical Theory check? ))
Felicia: "Might as well give it a shot…"
[OOC] WC GM: Go for it.
Riia hunts the clouds, looking for a possible landing spot of some kind….
ORN: "Trombe Unit: Prepare for offensive-impact lesson."
Eric Lionheart rolled 1d100 and got 93 ( Total: 93 )
Cassandra's circle slows the party's descent a bit, giving the party a bit more time to think.
[OOC] Eric Lionheart: …Fail.
ORN will rip the boosters off their sockets, replacing any damaged lines with own mass, and aim them downwards
[OOC] Eric Lionheart: Even if I raised it during my level ups.
Pak: "U-um…"
Unfortunately, this is completely outside of Eric's field of expertise.
Pak: "…Wait… water and ice crystals?"
Pak: "Sakha! TRy to freeze the next cloud!"
Cassandra_Lionheart nods to Pak
ORN will, if time permits, break down the wings into a crumple-zone, setting up multiple shatterable layers below
The party begins to enter the second cloud. It, too, proves to be a disperse set of crystals.
Eric Lionheart: "The best I can do to help is help Cassandra try to slow our fall."
Cassandra_Lionheart tries another fated circle
Hector: "Pak, good idea."
Hector: "Sakha, please try your largest blast of cold possible to freeze the entire cloud."
Pak: "Sakhaaa!"
Eric_Lionheart casts his magic in time with Cassandra's attack.
Felicia draws on her power, blowing a chilly breath along her sword. She swings her frozen blade, hoping to spread it through the cloud!
ORN reconsiders
[OOC] Hector: Terra wtf are you.
[OOC] Felicia: I is has to make check nao? Lulz Magic Knight
Eric's and Cassandra's efforts slow the party some more.
The cloud REACTS to Felicia's blow, freezing instantly.
Pak blinks.
Felicia: "Oh. It worked."
The fall stops - abruptly.
Cassandra Lionheart: "If worse comes to worse…Hit me…I'll try to build enough power to explode the stored chi!"
Felicia blinks.
Pak oof!
Eric Lionheart: "Well, that worked."
ORN: "Trombe Unit. Appologies. Exterior shell changes will be required"
Eric_Lionheart falls over from the stop.
[OOC] Sakha: Sorry I zoned out
ORN breaks a few chunks of self
Cassandra_Lionheart stops when she realizes it worked.
Eric Lionheart: "Ack!"
Trombe: "No apologies necessary."
Riia blinks, looking about
Hector thuds. "Well, I'm fine, but a little bruised. Good show, Felicia."
ORN considers an alternate design…
Cassandra Lionheart: "Thank you Felicia."
The shock of the impact dispelled some of the cloud. Its core now seems to be one giant floating glacier.
Eric Lionheart: "Better bruised then splatered on the ground in my opinion."
[OOC] WC GM: Lore: Magic check, anyone who wants.
Cassandra_Lionheart hugs her quickly and then lets go, blushing
ORN: "Sakha. Riia. What span would be required to allow indefinite flight under the Trombe Unit's booster power, assuming a mostly wing form?"
Riia rolled 1d100 and got 64 ( Total: 64 )
Cassandra Lionheart rolled 1d100 and got 55 for a total of 55
[OOC] Pak: leveld
[OOC] Cassandra Lionheart: pass by 13
Felicia rolled 1d100 and got 72 for a total of 72
Eric_Lionheart treats any wounds while pondering the cloud.
[OOC] Riia: Fail
[OOC] Felicia: Pass by 28
Eric Lionheart rolled 1d100 and got 19 for a total of 19
[OOC] Felicia: Well magic spirits, butts, whatever
[OOC] Felicia: I forget what I was doing with that lore
Riia looks at Trombe, weighs mass in her head and considers the thrust that Trombe was displaying…
[OOC] Eric Lionheart: Pass by 58.
[OOC] Riia: Invent check to answer ORN's question, WC?
Clouds do not…should not…react that fast. This cloud was enchanted.
[OOC] Eric Lionheart: Wait…read the wrong numbers…pass by 19, actually.
Felicia pokes at it, lightly.
Riia can tell that indefinite flight, with Trombe's thrust to mass ratio, is not possible - especially with passengers.
Eric Lionheart: "Hmm. Seems we found a enchanted cloud of some sort."
Eric Lionheart: "No regular cloud would have reacted in such a manner."
Riia considers, then frowns, then shakes her head at ORN regretfully.
Eric Lionheart: "So…we might be in the right region at least."
The cloud-glacier is solid.
Eric_Lionheart wonders…could he move the cloud-glacier using wind magic as thrust? It seems to be floating on its own…
ORN: "Exterior modifications are possible. This Unit requires time to reform anyways. Do you know of any mass or thrust modifications which would allow this?"
Sakha rolled up 1d100: 46
As Eric ponders that, he feels part of the cloud calling. Off to the right…
Eric Lionheart: "…Hmm?"
Eric_Lionheart looks around towards the right.
Riia frowns in thought, looking around idly.
Pak peeks over.
Riia spots Ahiru's amulet and starts suddenly, then starts thinking harder….
Ahiru looks at Riia confused.
Riia holds up a sign "Kupostein wanted power of fire and water."
Riia replaces that with "How to use?"
ORN: "Solidified cloud not falling, this appears relatively strange."
ORN: "Thrust could be applied to it in the meantime."
Felicia: "Fire and water makes… steam, yes?"
Felicia: "But how does that help?"
Riia shrugs and nods, but doesn't look satisfied
Cassandra Lionheart: " how can we harness that?"
ORN extends further into Trombe to learn a little more, digs the talons in, and aims the engines
Riia waves a hand at that question.
[OOC] ORN: vectored thrust, robot chicken style!
Eric Lionheart: "Something is calling to the right…"
Hector leans backwards a bit and puts his arms up behind his head.
It takes a bit of searching, but Eric soon sees - it almost looks like a machine, formed out of the ice.
Riia tilts her head and nods at the amulet itself, then glances speculatively at Ahiru.
Pak: "…Wait a sec."
Ahiru: "???"
[OOC] Hector: And now I'm thinking Baten Kaitos' cloud-country.
Riia sits down to think hard…
[OOC] WC GM: Hector is not entirely incorrect.
ORN: "… . ?"
[OOC] Hector: I'm surprised that I'm not the only other person on earth to play it.
Trombe's output appears too minimal to move the glacier.
[OOC] WC GM: I hven't played it, but it's a not *that* uncommon setup.
[OOC] Hector: Saiai, buy it, dammit. It's no more than fifteen bucks right now, and you have a Wii.
Eric Lionheart: "There is some sort of machine here, or something."
[OOC] Riia: I'm actually thinking of Clouds of Xeen. =p
[OOC] Pak: I played it…
[OOC] Hector: Good.
Eric Lionheart: "Riia, come here for a moment. Machinery is not my strong point."
Riia blinks at Eric, then springs upright and jogs over
ORN relinks the engines to the chassis then
Riia blinks at the machine
Riia frowns thoughtfully, teasing at a memory…
Riia blinks, her jaw dropping….
Hector: "Mm? You got somethin' in your head, Riia?"
Riia gets a sadistic grin on her face.
Eric Lionheart: "…?"
[OOC] ORN: they out of LoS?
[OOC] WC GM: No, you can see them.
Riia looks at Eric, and tries to figure out how to pantomime-
[OOC] ORN: hm. machinery or mineral lore for the thing?
Riia pulls out her sign: "Can use holy?"
[OOC] WC GM: Machinery, at a steep penalty.
ORN rolled 1d100 and got 31 ( Total: 31 )
[OOC] ORN: made by 57 before penalty
[OOC] WC GM: Were it IRL, the cliche would be "like nothing on Earth".
Hector looks at the machine that Riia's looking at.
Hector: "…huh. Yeah, not my specialty."
Hector: "Unless you wanted to toss it at someone."
Eric Lionheart: "The power of holy is not one I can use."
Riia: =\
Riia shrugs, puts her hands together in front of her mouth, and blows on them, loud enough to make a sound.
Cassandra Lionheart: "Well, what is needed?"
ORN: "… This is not of Elvaan or Tech School design."
ORN: "… This may be Viera design…"
Riia shakes her head at ORN.
Riia points at the moon.
Pak: "…What's that machine thingey."
ORN nods
Eric Lionheart: "It's from the moon?"
Riia nods
ORN: "Similar structures on the crashed ship, correct?"
Riia shakes her head, then taps her chest a couple times.
ORN: "… Shadow functions would also apply. Wind may function as a low powered backup, Eric."
Riia nods
Hector: "Too bad we don't have a holy-elemental spirit. Could just blast it fulla power with Ahiru's amulet."
ORN: "This should be installed upon the Trombe Unit immediately."
Riia blinks as ORN reminds her of what she was thinking of before Eric called her over
Riia heads over to Ahiru, and holds up a sign, "Can you make fire?"
ORN: "This Unit's Whitecannon and reconstruction fields may also function if paired with Pak's shadow-magic. Using Cassie as the original source, this may provide some power."
Cassandra Lionheart: "Yeah..I did use Aero, a bit."
Ahiru nods and changes into Pyrtyr.
Riia nods thoughtfully.
Riia changes the sign: "Create water?"
ORN: "Glacier."
Felicia: "I can do that…"
Pak: "I can only do Shadow…"
Riia hms and nods
Pak: "Holy is… hm."
Riia tries to find something to make designs on…
Felicia draws in the ambient spirits of water in the air, generating a small torrent about her sword.
ORN: "This Unit's white techniques may prove appropriate to combine, Pak."
Riia frowns a little at that, but shrugs
ORN: "In any case, this appears to be an amplification system for, most likely several antipodes, used in thrust"
Eric Lionheart: "Hmm."
ORN: "Is this approximate enough, Riia?"
Felicia: "Water and Fire. Wind and Earth. Thunder and Frost. Perhaps not as potent as others, but I am capable."
Riia nods at ORN
Cassandra_Lionheart sits down and watches the others.
[OOC] Riia: Riia likes the idea of stealing one of the Master's tools to use against them, but she'd prefer to use something of her own…
ORN: "White/Shadow are likely ideal here, but it should be adequate in combination with existing thrust using other sources."
Riia eyes Trombe, and the machine…
Riia sighs and carefully steps down off Trombe, testing the solidity of the glacier before she puts her weight on it.
[OOC] ORN: on the other hand, taking the other guy's warmachines and hitting'em with the new and improved version would be delighfully WW2 germany of you ;p
[OOC] ORN: well its holding up Trombe
Sakha: "How many elements do we need then?"
[OOC] Hector: It happens in UC a lot, too.
The glacier is solid enough
Riia heads over to the machine, looking for control systems.
Pak follows Riia, curious.
The control systems appear to be minimal. There are ports to feed in the elemental energy, and a pressure pad to change direction.
ORN: "Two at a time"
[OOC] Hector: Crappiest airship ever.
Left/right and up/down, with forward controlled by the amount of energy fed in.
[OOC] WC GM: Well yeah. Reason for that.
[OOC] ORN: aw come on, you don't really mean that
[OOC] ORN: its Trombe we're gonna put this on!
[OOC] Hector: We should have Trombe who docks into a larger airship like the J-Bird does with the J-Ark.
[OOC] Hector: And then it shoots a multilaser from its mouth.
[OOC] Eric Lionheart: Trombe, Plug Out! Mega Fusion! >.>
[OOC] Hector: Exactly!
Riia hmms and tries to find how the machine is connected to other things
[OOC] Riia: meaning either attachment points, or if it's part of the cloud.
[OOC] ORN: well right now you have ORN docking onto Trombe, firing off dragoon lancer shots from his mouth. And all this for a fuckload less expensive than that J-Ark
The engine is simply part of the glacier. There does not seem to be a distinct end to the engine and start of the rest of it.
Pak: "Elemental energy…"
Pak: "What element does it use? Just holy?"
Pak: "Why wouldn't it take Wind energy?"
[OOC] Eric Lionheart: Not as epic.
ORN: "It appears to use combinations, Pak."
Riia shakes her head
Cassandra_Lionheart blinks and looks "I wonder what element my chi is?"
ORN: "Shadow and White together, or just wind for lower output"
Sakha: "Combinations of opposites?"
Riia nods
Pak: "Oh!"
Eric Lionheart: "So what combinations would help us the most?"
Pak: "Combos!"
ORN nods
Pak holds up a fiyaball.
Riia shakes her head
ORN starts charging up a healing wind
[OOC] Hector: The talking bear from Bleach is voiced by J in Japanese.
Pak: "o.o?"
ORN: "This may work. Please fire your shadow"
Riia nods
Hector watches, wondering when they'll ever need a lightning burst.
[OOC] Hector: Considering the whip's made of metal, that'd be a damn good lightning rod extension.
[OOC] Riia: When we find a target we need to shoot =p
[OOC] ORN: you've had ORN in the party for a while now. It should be obvious there's ALWAYS a good time for lightning bursts
[OOC] ORN: well, 'cept against bolt
Pak holds up and tosses in a shadow ball
ORN fires off Healing Wind
The healing wind bounces off the input port. The shadow ball is gulped up, though. Everyone can feel a slight rumbling, but nothing more…yet.
Riia frowns.
Eric Lionheart: "Needs more it seems."
ORN: "hm.."
[OOC] WC GM: Lore: Magic, anyone.
Sakha rolled up 1d100: 90
Riia rolled 1d100 and got 25 ( Total: 25 )
ORN rolled 1d100 and got 93 ( Total: 93 )
Eric Lionheart rolled 1d100 and got 48 ( Total: 48 )
[OOC] Riia: Fail by 5
[OOC] Sakha: pass by 10?
Cassandra Lionheart rolled 1d100 and got 29 for a total of 29
[OOC] ORN: fail, default too
ORN: "perhaps narrower targetting?"
[OOC] Cassandra Lionheart: pass by 39
Those who pass quickly recognize the problem from what was said earlier: Healing is not Holy.
Pak: "…That didn't work? Aww."
[OOC] ORN: healing be Unholy! cassie was a chaos zealot all along!
Riia frowns in thought, searching her memories….
Cassandra Lionheart: "Well…Darn."
Riia taps Pak's shoulder and jerks her chin towards the input port.
Cassandra_Lionheart tries to think of what element her chi is…
ORN tries a lancer shot, figuring something he got off a white mage somewhere must work
Eric Lionheart: "ORN, whatever you have is useless for this."
Sakha: "We'd need the actual spell counterpart… And I was never interested in the Dark and Light spheres of Magic. What about you Eric?"
Pak huh?"
Eric Lionheart: "I specialize in Wind for my limited offensive abilities."
Pak …
The lancer shot bounces off too.
ORN: "…"
Hector leans forward and props himself across his arms again.
Riia gestures at the Dark port
Pak tries to put Riia's chin in the input port?
Felicia: "…"
Riia rolls her eyes at the mithra
Riia makes a casting gesture
ORN: "Wind should also function alone, at a lesser degree."
Pak: "Oh. What do you want me to cast?"
The dark energy spurts back out, uselessly - but convering Riia and Pak for a moment.
Cassandra_Lionheart looks at the port, and does another Fated circle…can't hurt right?
Pak g-gah
Felicia: "Hm."
Riia blanches
Riia sighs
Eric Lionheart: "…Cast magic on it, Pak."
Felicia holds her blade at arms length, and spins it, drawing in wind.
ORN: "Sakha: if 'White' magic does not function, where does one obtain White?"
Cassandra's circle does nothing.
Felicia attempts to input her Tornado Slash?
Felicia gains a good amount of wind on her blade.
Cassandra_Lionheart sighs "We are stuck here without Holy it seems.."
Riia rolls her eyes…
Pak casts Fire into it?
Riia shakes her head…
The glacier JOLTS into motion at Felicia's stab.
ORN: "Wind should also work alone to a lesser degree, as was said, Cassie."
Pak's Fire bounces off.
Felicia: "Maybe this wi-OHGOD"
Pak wah!
Cassandra_Lionheart nods "Just trying to help."
Hector is thrust backwards a bit, still on Trombe.
Fortunately, the edge of the glacier is far enough away that no one falls off.
Eric Lionheart: "Ack!"
Hector: "Well, looks like you got it workin'. Who wants to steer it?"
Sakha: "It's in the same sphere as 'white' magic. It is considered to be the utmost power of purity and goodness"
Riia sighs regretfully…
The cloudship travels off in the direction it happened to be pointing in - which, unfortunately, is straight for the volcano Trombe leapt from.
[OOC] Riia: Riia can do it, but is kinda rusty…
Sakha whas as the thing jolts and almost slips.
Pak erk!
Cassandra Lionheart: "Ermmm…"
Eric Lionheart: "Maybe we should figure out the best route to take before moving too far."
Pak: "H-how do we turn it the other way?"
Felicia: "Excellent question."
Eric Lionheart: "Do we have any idea where to go?"
Cassandra_Lionheart looks for the controls!
ORN: "Purity and Goodness ? ? ?"
Felicia looks for something that could do that.
Riia taps the controls.
ORN: "How does one condense this into weapon form?"
Riia pushes the one to turn the glacier left…
The cloud steers under Riia's guidance.
Eric Lionheart: "Usually can't, ORN."
Felicia: "People associate it with such, ORN."
Fortunately, it misses the volcano, soon zooming over Refuge.
ORN: "Yet it IS used for offensive purposes."
Eric Lionheart: "It can be, yes."
The glacier is translucent enough to give the party a view of Refuge from above.
ORN: "In fact, it was used in an attempt against yourself and This Unit was it not?"
Riia wonders if there would be some way to detatch the engine from the glacier
Eric Lionheart: "That does not mean you could forge a weapon using it, however."
Riia sighs at the two
Riia sees that it might be possible, with a better understanding of what was the engine and what was the glacier. All she can see are the input ports, the control pad, and a few openings to vector the thrust.
ORN: "Somehow the concepts of purity and goodness seem erroneous adjectives for the element. Pure Fire would be no less pure than pure Holy."
Felicia shrugs. "In essence it is the same as any other element."
Felicia nods.
ORN: "And goodness is what This Group violently commits, which evidently does not allow it to directly propel this drive any better."
Eric_Lionheart rubs his forehead.
Hector rubs his temples at the listening in to Orn
ORN: "Otherwise the condemned would have been incapable of using it against This Group, lacking 'goodness'."
Pak: "ORN- it's basically light energy condensed."
Riia hmms
Cassandra Lionheart: "ORN…"
ORN nods at Pak
Pak holds up the shadow-stuff. "And this is condensed shadow."
Pak: "The spirits themselves may speak of pure good or evil, but these are their physical manifestations."
[OOC] Pak: brb
Riia sighs and stands
Hector: "Do we have any leads for an actual direction, or are we just gonna fly around 'till we crash inta somethin'?"
Riia looks around the glacier….
ORN: "The other large cloud formations would be a start"
[OOC] Riia: How big is it, btw?
The roughly half-kilometer-long glacier seems particularly barren.
[OOC] Riia: Well duh, it was a cloud ten minutes ago =p
[OOC] Hector: So it's, what, 2000x2000ft?
[OOC] WC GM: Closer to 1000x1000
[OOC] WC GM: …I think?
[OOC] Hector: Hm.
[OOC] Eric Lionheart: That would be width as well.
[OOC] Hector: Big enough to fight random encounters on, lulz.
Pak: "Kyuu."
[OOC] WC GM: 1600x1600, actually.
Pak: "Let's just go looking for more clouds?"
[OOC] WC GM: And you don't yet know how thick/thin it is.
[OOC] Hector: Probably not that thick given that we can see through it.
[OOC] WC GM: But speaking of…
Riia frowns and gestures at the controls, raising her eyebrows inquisitively
The air ripples in the distance. Everywhere a large set of clouds is, is also some distortion.
Pak: "Huh?"
Cassandra_Lionheart goes to the controls and looks them over
Eric Lionheart: "Hmm."
ORN: "… It would appear they did not wish to be seen as anything more from below"
[OOC] Hector: White mist that leads to enemy encounters. Inversion of the black random-battle mist from Rebirth.
[OOC] Hector: I'm seeing everything as a reference to Tales or SRW since that's all I've played in the last week and a half.
Hector is the first to spy some…it looks like white and black mist forming near one end of the glacier.
Riia taps the control panels, trying to line the glacier up on the nearest large cloud formation…
Hector: "Look alive, guys! I Think we've got company!"
Pak: "M-meep."
Pak: "White and black mist?"
The mist forms into eight points - four white, four black.
Eric Lionheart: "A odd setup."
Hector hops off of Trombe.
The glacier is easily aimed towards the nearest substantial clouds.
Cassandra Lionheart: "Stay on guard…I have an odd feeling!"
ORN: "…"
[OOC] ORN: … approach vector huh
Felicia: "…No kidding?"
The eight points fire at the party in unison. Fortunately, from their distance, they miss.
Unfortunately, they fly - staying well outside of melee range. (As in Flight.)

ORN spreads The Trombe Unit's wings out, spooling up the turbines as massive arcs form between all of them
[OOC] WC GM: Except, not so giant.
[OOC] Hector: Pak has gravity.
[OOC] Hector: …right?
ORN fires a storm of lightning bolts at the enemy group!

Hector: "…flying? Wait a minute. Pak, can't you bring 'em down to our level?"
ORN's lightning arcs from enemy to enemy to enemy. Angel Star B looks particularly weak.
Pak: "Sure can! >:3"
Hector: "Alright! Do that. Cassie, start chargin' your Fated Circle. I'll back you up with a power boost."
Angel Star B churns the air, sending a twister to cover the group.
Pak: "But I can only drag down 1 at a time."

[OOC] WC GM: Nope. Only physical is doubled.
[OOC] ORN: not double but not awared
Hector: "Or block the wind."
Eric_Lionheart points his hand forward. "That won't work again." The winds blow around the party, protecting them…but something seems different, as if the wind around the party is starting to get absorbed? (Absorb Wind)
[OOC] Felicia: Whee limit 3
Eric Lionheart: "How about I make it so it refreshes us instead? I think you'll find this a far better event."
Angel Star D tries the same tactic.

Eric_Lionheart pants a bit. "It is a bit more draining, however, then I expected…"
Sakha: "Hmm… the wind up here sure is fickle…"
Devil Star B fires off a ball of darkness at Eric, while Devil Star D puts up a Shield.

Eric Lionheart: "Not like it's effective."
Pak >.>
Pak: "So, which should I drag down?"
Pak is readying a magical tractor beam.

Eric Lionheart: "I'll gather more infomation on our foes in a moment. I am curious about these attackers."
[OOC] Hector: It auto-reapplies whenever you come back to life as long as I wasn't knocked out of it in the interim.
Riia slides a custom round into her rifle, aims it in the general direction of the enemy, and fires.
Riia rolled 1d100 and got 37 ( Total: 37 )
ORN: "Shadow. White. But more could be useful."
[OOC] Riia: Phew
[OOC] WC GM: Target?
[OOC] WC GM: Or what ammo?
Riia pulls the trigger, and a glowing bullet rises out of her rifle, its trajectory bending slightly upwards as though it were attached to something in the sky. All enemies are rendered W: Ice.
[OOC] Riia: 4 rounds
[OOC] WC GM: Ah so. Just in time for Sakha!
Hector: "…I see what you're doing."
Sakha sends another Blizzaga wave against them all!

[OOC] Sakha: She said 4 rounds?
[OOC] Hector: Blizzaga can kill them all.
Eric Lionheart: "Maybe I won't be able to collect infomation…?"
[OOC] Hector: Seriously they don't have much HP.
[OOC] Riia: If it lasts that long
Sakha waits until it goes off then (25)
[OOC] Hector: Prolonging the fight might not be the best idea.
[OOC] Riia: The combat, I mean, and DevilStar D is still shielded.
[OOC] ORN: they were pretty much a threshotter far as I can tell
[OOC] WC GM: 4 rounds, not 4 init ticks.

Eric Lionheart: "Hmm, one left."
Devil Star D meeps and panics - delaying a bit.
[OOC] WC GM: Everyone else go.

[OOC] WC GM: Shield does not block Scan.
[OOC] Hector: I'm just checking. It just might be that broken.
[OOC] WC GM: Was Eric going to Scan?
Hector: "Give it a look, Eric. I'm not stoppin' ya. I just can't do a damn thing."
[OOC] Eric Lionheart: Can I use Tame and Scan? I wanna see if I can Tame one. >.>;
[OOC] Felicia: Eh. Only as broken as any other Tier 8 spell
[OOC] Eric Lionheart: Though I think Tame is autotriggering and more or less it's 'do you want x monster' anyways.
[OOC] WC GM: You can't Tame and Scan in the same round - but you can Tame in the next round.
[OOC] Eric Lionheart: Tame's wording implies the moment a monster hits 0 HP it works, reguardless if it's my turn or not.

Eric_Lionheart attempts to Tame it. Mostly by going over and picking it up.
[OOC] Riia: OTOH, if we had managed to capture an Angel Star as well, we would have a full drive system for our flying glacier.
[OOC] Eric Lionheart: Yeah. >.<
[OOC] Hector: Angel Star = Minovsky Particles?
[OOC] Riia: Ah, well.
Eric's attempt proves very successful.
[OOC] Hector: Some other time.
[OOC] Eric Lionheart: But that was mostly due to a misunderstanding of the rules that should have not even been changed whatsoever.
[OOC] Riia: Jeff's right, you'll get another chance.
[OOC] WC GM: You speak as if you're unable to hunt down more of these guys.
[OOC] WC GM: Or - you will be unable.
Hector: "Mm. Good show, everyone. 'specially you two, Riia and Sakha."
Eric Lionheart: "Shame one of the light ones wasn't left intact. I've never seen creatures like these before."
Pak: "Huu."
Riia puts her rifle back in its holder and nods gratified to Hector, Cassie, and Ahiru.
Pak: "We'll try to catch another next time!"
Pak: "These could be very useful."
Cassandra Lionheart: "Yeah..Odd little creatures."
ORN: "If you wish to dissect the White-based ones, further hunting should be possible."
ORN: "Do these communicate effectively?"
Riia returns to the glacier's control systems, trying to put it on a course for the nearest cloud cluster.
5 Shining Gems and 3 Ultra Potions are left on the glacier.
Pak looks. "Ooh~!"
Eric Lionheart: "I suspect we will encounter many…and I'm not even sure if dissection is possible with such a entity…not really my strong point either. I'm more or less curious how Grav was able to seize control of something sliced off of Min."
Riia snags 1 - no, 2 of the Ultra Potions.
Pak grabs 1 of each.
Eric_Lionheart blinks and picks up a Shining Gem. "Hmm? What's this?"
Cassandra_Lionheart watches and passes
[OOC] WC GM: 12026 XP and 4191 Gil each.
Hector: "Well, if ya pull hard enough on somethin', you're gonna break off a piece, right?"
ORN: "Three Hypotheses in this regard"
Hector: "And nothin' pulls stronger than gravity."
ORN: "First, Min is actively functioning in collaboration with Grav"
ORN: "Plu also fits within these ideas, though their circumstance may be different."
Eric Lionheart: "We need to find another light one to get more infomation yet, but continue."
ORN: "Second, it is possible that Min is subverted or being used by Grav, possibly after aid from the Trio. In this case, Min may or may not be in a berserked state, but is being used against its will."
Cassandra_Lionheart nods "That might be a possible senario."
Felicia shrugs.
ORN: "Third, though possibly actively combating Grav, creations, avatars or minions could easily be controlled directly through enough force, making them effectively puppets due to low physical mass and ease of capture."
Pak yawns tiredly.
Pak: "Kyuu."
ORN: "This could be due to threats similar to yours in hijacking this one, or alternative methods."
Pak: "We gotta find a destination, still…'
Hector pets Pak.
Hector: "A destination, huh? Hey!"
Cassandra_Lionheart looks at ORN and blinks
Hector takes the radio out of his pocket.
Hector: "Let's ask Aerie!"
ORN: "Large areas of clouds will be an effective start, Pak"
ORN nods at Hector
ORN: "If it still functions?"
Hector pushes the button. "Aerie, this is Hector. You in?"
There is only static from the radio.
Cassandra Lionheart: "…."
Hector: "Dammit."
Hector: "I'm still not tossin' this."
Pak: "…Wait."
Hector puts it away.
Pak looks at the radio.
Pak: "…Hmm."
The cloudbank ahead looms and ripples.
Pak: "Anyway…"
Pak looks ahead.
As the party gets closer - more of the white and black dots they just fought can be seen, against a small army of moogles on the top of the cloud.
The glacier's course is set to take it right into the danger zone.
Hector: "S'pose we should give those moogles a hand if they need it?"
Cassandra Lionheart: "Yeah."
Hector: "M'sure the area blasts that Orn 'n Sakha are capable of could level 'em in moments."
ORN: "Indeed. Charging"
Eric Lionheart: "Try to keep a white one intact enough for my efforts. We must know more about what is going on."
Riia tries to fine-tune the cloud so it doesn't smash into the moogles
ORN: "Very well. Sakha?"
Pak: "Moohles~!"
ORN runs up the turbines on the Trombe Unit and gets ready to fire
The cloudship is already aimed at the airspace above the moogles - which, unfortunately, is where the explosions aimed at the stars are occurring.
Hector: "Riia, drop us down some if you know how."
ORN: "Obtaining their attention. Opening fire."
