EC Session 6.4

Morning, Merch 1 Milfday.
[OOC] Hector: Riia should make a De-Tsun-i-fier for use on Sakha.
[OOC] Hector: The other cure for a tsundere is sex.
Somehow, you slept well despite the light everywhere. Must be the room - seems designed to be restful and conducive to meditation.
[OOC] Riia: That's your job. And problem.
Hector has a sleep bubble about two feet in diameter attached to his nose as he sleeps.
The door that the Moogle was working on stands unlocked and partially open.
Riia crawls out from under her sleeping pad.
Cassandra_Lionheart wakes up, and rubs the sleep from her eyes.
Eric_Lionheart is already up, taking notes about everything.
Sakha sighs and gets up to see what the moogles are up to.
Eric Lionheart: "This place is really quite amazing."
Cassandra Lionheart: "Ugh…I got a headache.."
Pak yaaawns~
Pak is lying atop someone.
Riia heads to the door, checking for unsprung traps and the Moogle who was…unlocking it.
ORN tried one of those crystals while the others slept
Hector 's sleep bubble pops and he bolts awake, sitting up at the speed of light. "Waaaaah!"
ORN finds the crystals are…ice.
Cassandra_Lionheart looks down at Pak, and smiles
ORN: "… . . Filth also"
The moogles seem to have gathered aroudn the outside of the building.
ORN annoyed
Riia can easily see one, two, three…nine possible traps, with what look like cameras.
Sakha approaches the moogles.
Pak peeks outside.
Pak: "Mrr?"
Riia takes a closer look at the cameras…
Felicia stretches, lying on the floor. "Ughuu…" She feels around for her sword and starts to get up.
Eric Lionheart: "Hmm…"
Hector rubs his forehead. "Dammit, not that again."
Hector starts up with his morning ritual of dressing and exercises.
ORN goes over and checks on what Riia is up to
Moogles: "Hey, you're awake!"
The cameras swivel to point at Riia. So do their attached guns.
Riia steps carefully away from the door.
Moogles: "We'll watch from out here!"
ORN looks at Riia
ORN: "?"
Cassandra_Lionheart looks at the cameras "What is going on here?"
The cameras remain pointed at the door, but do not follow beyond that.
[OOC] Hector: Camera-guns?
Pak: "…Why are there guns pointed at us?"
Eric_Lionheart walks up to the group. "I miss anything?"
Moogles: "Those are the defenses."
Felicia rubs her eyes. "…what?"
Cassandra Lionheart: "Defenses? Are you afraid we were going to rob you..Or just defending us?"
Riia rolls her eyes
Riia taps Cassie on the shoulder, waves a finger around to indicate the group, then points at the defenses and mimes clubbing them to death.
ORN: "… More likely these techschool-likes installed them to eliminate This Group in its sleep"
Riia rolls her eyes at ORN's comment
Eric Lionheart: "Lets not assume bad things about these people, ORN."
Moogles: "No.""It's our convertor.""Our source of goods and equipment.""We installed defenses in case anyone ELSE tried to break in."
Hector meets up with everyone, yawning and stretching.
Cassandra Lionheart: "Yeah, ORN. Please."
[OOC] Riia: Also I'm rolling my eyes at the rest of the party's inability to remember the events of last week…
One of the moogles points up for emphasis.
Pak: ">.>?"
Cassandra_Lionheart looks up.
Pak peeks up.
ORN gets in between those nearest the cameras and the cameras themselves
Eric_Lionheart looks up as well.
Hector: "Mm. You do what you gotta do, that's what I always say."
The moogle is pointing at the inner moon.
Riia nods.
Hector scratches Pak behind his ears idly.
Eric Lionheart: "Hmm. It's getting closer."
Moogles: "Apparently some of THEM did.""That's why the defenses are online.""Too bad they didn't come offline like they were supposed to."
Cassandra Lionheart: "Oh. Okay."
Pak purr.
Pak: "Ahh…"
Pak: "…Can you turn them off? We don't like being shot at."
Cassandra Lionheart: "And we don't like destroying property that is not ours."
Riia holds up her sign: "Why do you think they are outside?"
Moogles: "Tried that.""They're stuck.""You'll have to destroy them.""Shouldn't be too hard for you - but we'll watch from back here."
Riia then pulls out her rifle and checks to make sure it's in working order.
Pak: "…"
Eric Lionheart: "What sort of range do the guns have?"
Pak: "Oh."
ORN: "A likely story. This Unit would recommend you evacuate the cloud entirely before This Group is done with these."
Hector: "If we're to take 'em out in your stead, give us all the info 'bout 'em, then."
Moogles: "They defend the room only.""In theory? Quite a long range.""Long enough to do their jobs."
Cassandra_Lionheart sighs and pulls out her sword…Then glares at ORN
Eric Lionheart: "So we can't destroy them from here safely, then."
Hector: "First of all, is lightning gonna short 'em out worse than any other kinda element is?"
Moogles: "Sure!""They're machines, as you can tell.""Their weapons are lasers and plasma throwers - Holy and Fire defenses should serve you well."
Eric_Lionheart glances at ORN as well and sighs.
Riia is already looking for vulnerable points in the machines.
[OOC] Riia: That is, preparing for Disabler.
Eric Lionheart: "I got defense covered."
Moogles: "Lightning?""Yeah, that'll work.""It's not something THEY have.""Don't bother using THEIR elements - they'll bounce right off! Bio too."
Hector: "I can imagine Bio wouldn't work on somethin' that's a machine."
ORN breaks open the launcher arm
Cassandra Lionheart: "Anyways. Shall we light them up?"
Hector: "Thanks for the heads-up."
Hector comes up with a plan.
Riia frowns- throwing her fingers wide to mime the sun, them bringing them in to mime the dark?
One of the moogles scribbles some notes and hands over a sheet.
The sheet is written in Mogri, so only those able to read it can read it.
[OOC] WC GM: http:/‘`/``Power+Turret
Sakha: "Bio is a force of nature, wouldn’t it make metal rust?"
Riia holds up a sign: "Shielded"
Hector: "Orn, keep tossin' your lightning at 'em. I'll take 'em out one at a time with my lightning. I imagine Felicia would do the same."
Riia adds to that while it's still up: "Shielded - Mows"
[OOC] WC GM: So, yeah, they almost literally hand you its character sheet.
Cassandra Lionheart: "Mows? Damn it.."
Eric Lionheart: "Meanwhile I keep us from being incinerated by their attacks."
Felicia: "…so we do what we normally do?"
Felicia: ">_>"
Hector: "Well, more emphasis on lightning than anythin' else today."
Cassandra_Lionheart nods and sighs to Felicia.
[OOC] Hector: Can we have multiple elemental barriers up at once?
Pak: "Eric! Let's set up defenses first."
[OOC] ORN: they have to be cast in succession
Eric Lionheart: "Indeed."
ORN holds his left arm over the right's rails and starts accumulating
Pak casts Elemental Barrier- Holy.
[OOC] Hector: brb toilet.
Eric_Lionheart casts Absorb:Fire.
[OOC] Pak: I: Holy, A: Fire, woos.
Pak: "Okay, feel free to charge in!"
Eric Lionheart: "Now, that should make us impervious to attack."
[OOC] WC GM: As ORN said, but yes. It is theoretically possible to be A: All Elements.
[OOC] Hector: back.
Eric Lionheart: "At least briefly, assuming a lack of attacks we do not know of from the weapons."
Moogles: "Should we mention the magnetic field?""Nah. It won't bother them much."
Cassandra Lionheart: "Magnetic field??"
Pak: "…"
Pak doesn't know what that is. >_>
[OOC] Sakha: This game will be done by spring… probably
[OOC] Hector: btw.
Eric Lionheart: "…"
[OOC] Hector: Our two-year anniversary for EC is on Wednesday.
[OOC] Hector: We started October 8th, 2006.
[OOC] Eric Lionheart: o.o
[OOC] Cassandra Lionheart: oh yeah.
[OOC] ORN: wow
[OOC] Eric Lionheart: EI has run about a year and a half and they aren't even past level 30. ;.;
[OOC] Hector: How long are the sessions?
[OOC] Hector: 'cause we've been doing 3-4.5 hours/week for two years.
[OOC] Hector: And I'd say this is damn good progress, even with Orn's inability to SHUT THE EVERLOVING FUCK UP.
Pak: "…n.n;"
[OOC] WC GM: EI's about the same playtime, but much slower XP progression.
Pak: "Um, what's magentic?"
[OOC] Eric Lionheart: I wonder if magentics would be something Eric knows of…
Moogles: "Don't worry about it.""Some of you will be slowed down.""But you're invincible!"
Hector: "Magnets? Doesn't that make metal stick together?"
Felicia: "…"
Hector: "You SHOULD get rid of it."
[OOC] WC GM: It is. Ditto ORN and Sakha - at the very least.
Cassandra_Lionheart shakes her head "Yeah, darn it!"
Eric Lionheart: "I don't think they can turn it off."
Eric Lionheart: "If they can't turn the guns off, they likely won't be able to turn off the field either."
Cassandra Lionheart: "Nice…And me without Cloth."
ORN: "Should be of little issue"
Eric_Lionheart smiles. "I am glad I don't wield swords and heavy armor now."
ORN: "This Unit also produces magnetic fields. As does Sakha when performing plasma techniques."
Hector: "So we can counter it with our own?"
Eric Lionheart: "I wonder if that would make it better or worse for you to move, ORN."
Sakha: "Plasma is not the most functional for battle."
Moogles: "That's right.""They're designed to slow down enemies while shooting rapid fire.""But you don't care - so long as you go in before those shields run out."
Cassandra_Lionheart looks at Eric, and shakes her head with a miserable look on her face
ORN: "These hostiles will be dealt with. It may, however, slow This Group's pursuit of those Techschool afterwards by several seconds."
[OOC] WC GM: It's been long enough to tick down I: Holy and A: Fire by 1.
ORN: "… … …"
Cassandra Lionheart: "Well…Lets do this!"
Eric Lionheart: "Enough of this talk. Lets smash those guns already before our defense falter."
ORN gets tired of waiting and lets off the thunderstorm
Riia nods at the cannons with one raised eyebrow.
WC GM: Battle order: PowerTurretE:54 PowerTurretF:50 PowerTurretD:48 PowerTurretI:48 PowerTurretA:44 PowerTurretC:42 PowerTurretG:42 PowerTurretB:40 PowerTurretH:40 Ahiru:26 Sakha:23 Eric:23 PowerTurretE:19(EI) PowerTurretF:15(EI) Riia:13 PowerTurretD:13(EI) PowerTurretI:13(EI) ORN:11 Hector:11 Pak:10 Cassandra:9 PowerTurretA:9(EI) Felicia:7 PowerTurretC:7(EI) PowerTurretG:7(EI) PowerTurretB:5(EI) PowerTurretH:5(EI)
[OOC] Felicia: hooray Auto-Slow
The power turrets let loose with a barrage of light and plasma!
To no effect!
[OOC] Hector: Gureeeeeeeeito!
Eric Lionheart: "Useless."
Cassandra Lionheart: "Grrr!"
[OOC] Hector: waiit.
[OOC] Hector: Nevermind.
[OOC] WC GM: Ahiru!
Ahiru raises Nature's Barrier!
[OOC] WC GM: Sakha!
Sakha: "ANOTHER fight? This is such a pain…" She summons her wand.
Two more lasers bounce uselessly off the party's barriers.
[OOC] WC GM: Riia!
[OOC] Eric Lionheart: You forgot me.
[OOC] WC GM: So I did. Eric!
[OOC] Eric Lionheart: Unless you counted my cast of Absorb:Fire as my action while outside of combat.
[OOC] WC GM: No, that's pre-combat.
Eric_Lionheart lets loose a blast of strong winds at the guns! (Aeraga)
Eric Lionheart rolled 1d100 and got 4 for a total of 4
[OOC] Eric Lionheart: Fucking crits. Go away, I don't need you.
[OOC] WC GM: Hit no da
Eric Lionheart rolled 5d8+378 and got 8, 4, 2, 7, 3 for a total of 402
[OOC] Eric Lionheart: …Bloody keyboard.
Eric Lionheart rolled 1d1+401,75% and got 1 for a total of 301.5
Bits of the armor are blown away.
[OOC] Eric Lionheart: Bloody group targeting rules.
[OOC] WC GM: Now Riia!
Riia dashes up to PowerTurretE and starts yanking out vital components.
[OOC] Riia: Dismantler, goes off on 3.
Two more turrets cover the party with plasma. Eric's barrier makes it feel like a relaxing, soothing sauna.
ORN: "Thunder"
ORN lets off his long-accumulated electrical storm across the entire compound
ORN rolled 4d12+390,150% and got 7, 9, 3, 9 for a total of 627.0
Electrical arcs light across the turrets, bouncing from one to another to another. They aren't quite destroyed yet, but almost.
[OOC] WC GM: Hector!
Hector: "Alright, let's finish them off!" *Command: Assault*
Hector takes a swing at Turret A to emphasize his point.
Hector rolled 1d100-200 and got 84 for a total of -116
The turrets are almost impossible to miss. (Hit)
Hector rolled 4d10+247 and got 8, 1, 7, 7 for a total of 270
Turret A splinters to pieces.
[OOC] WC GM: Pak!
Pak wah?
[OOC] Hector: Glad it doesn't have over 200 armor. D:
Pak: "Um…"
Pak goes for an old standby.
Eric Lionheart: "These foes are useless."
Pak rolled up 1d10: 4
[OOC] Hector: I know. I'm just saying that the minibosses and shit we fight have so much armor there's literally no point in attack actions.
Eric Lionheart: "The moogles seriously think they can defend this room?"
[OOC] Felicia: Unless you're a bananagin knight 8D
[OOC] Pak: Do over!
Pak rolled up 1d10: 5
[OOC] Pak: :|
[OOC] Hector: brb, guys. I gotta move somethin'.
[OOC] Pak: GF
Pak rolled up 1d10: 6
[OOC] Pak: hah!
Pak grins, charging his knives with lightning…!
[OOC] WC GM: Actually, even the chocobo riding trio doesn't have over 200 ARM or MARM, as of their last appearance - and I think they're the highest ARM/MARM guys you usually see.
Pak rolled up 1d100: 76
Pak rolled up 1d100: 70
Pak launches!
Pak rolled up 4d6+180,150%: 298.5
[OOC] Hector: back.
All but turrets E, F, and G are destroyed.
[OOC] WC GM: Cassandra!
Cassandra_Lionheart looks and shakes her haed going for a swift swing at F
Cassandra Lionheart rolled 1d100 and got 22 for a total of 22
[OOC] WC GM: hit
[OOC] Hector: Banagin? You mean Bangaa?
[OOC] Cassandra Lionheart: no command?
[OOC] Hector: Yeah, Assault.
[OOC] WC GM: Command's up.
Cassandra Lionheart rolled 3d12+272 and got 8, 7, 2 for a total of 289
[OOC] Hector: The main advantage to a command is that the first one of the fight doesn't use up my turn.
Two turrets remain.
[OOC] WC GM: Felicia!
Felicia yawns, and spins her sword, calling lightning to the blade. She leaps, swinging towards G!
Felicia rolled 1d100 and got 85 ( Total: 85 )
[OOC] WC GM: hit
Felicia rolled 4d10+351,150% and got 7, 7, 10, 7 for a total of 573.0
[OOC] ORN: even if limited that's a free party buff
Cassandra Lionheart: "Tired Felicia?"
[OOC] Hector: The +1 DS at this point is enough to help overcome Arm.
Eric Lionheart: "I think she's bored."
Felicia smashes G into more pieces than Cassandra did.
The only one remaining is the one Riia is working on.
[OOC] WC GM: Speaking of!
Felicia: "Pretty much."
Riia rolled 1d100 and got 82 ( Total: 82 )
[OOC] Riia: GF
Riia rolled 1d100 and got 17 ( Total: 17 )
Cassandra_Lionheart shrugs her shoulders "Never slept on a floor?"
Eric Lionheart: "I might not like fighting, but at least it's more intresting when things are a slight challenge."
Riia lets the final turret break itself.
It snaps, rattling to the floor inert.
The room is secure.
[OOC] Hector: Can I poach machines?
[OOC] Pak: Riia gets dibs.
[OOC] WC GM: Why yes you can.
[OOC] Hector: !!!
Riia hunts through the pile of scrap, looking for something useful.
[OOC] Pak: She gets to scavenge.
Hector starts salvaging the machines for parts.
[OOC] WC GM: Both of you.
[OOC] Hector: I'm at 100. :3
Hector rolled 1d100 and got 75 ( Total: 75 )
Riia rolled 1d100 and got 23 ( Total: 23 )
[OOC] ORN: yeah, riia has the parts-check too
[OOC] Hector: Pass by 25 if no penalty.
[OOC] WC GM: No penalty.
[OOC] Riia: CoS 102%
[OOC] Hector: Oh, right. One check per machine, right?
[OOC] Hector: How many did we fight, then?
[OOC] Riia: Nine, wasn't it?
[OOC] Hector: There we so many EIs that I kinda lost count.
Hector rolled 8#1d100(1) and got 31 for a total of 31
[OOC] Riia: Yeah, nine.
Hector rolled 8#1d100(2) and got 42 for a total of 42

Hector rolled 8#1d100(7) and got 34 for a total of 34
Hector rolled 8#1d100(8) and got 2 for a total of 2
Hector got a total of 295
[OOC] Hector: 94's not a fail on a 1-100, is it?
[OOC] Hector: It's 95-100, right?
[OOC] Pak: yup
[OOC] Pak: It's not a fumble
[OOC] Pak: so you didn't actually, like, CRUSH IT WITH YOUR FEET
Riia manages to salvage part of the turret's elemental defense mechanism. It looks like it could daisy chain into her Skyhook. (Triple Element part)
Riia nods in satisfaction.
WC GM rolled 18d100 and got 19, 45, 53, 42, 83, 44, 36, 5, 99, 46, 68, 94, 57, 49, 92, 10, 66, 40 for a total of 948
[OOC] Riia: Good - that's 150 g I don't have to spend on my new invention.
Hector's ministrations yield just a bit of a haul. Then again, given what they were defending…
8 Fire Gems, 7 Speed Drinks, 2 Ultra Potions, and 1 Shield Armor remain scattered about.
Cassandra_Lionheart grabs 3 Speed drinks
[OOC] Hector: Shield Armor?
Pak grabs 4 fire gems.
Felicia takes the two Ultra Potions.
Cassandra Lionheart: "Finally something I can use!
[OOC] PeterDracos: Thank god all it took was rebooting the router and modem…
[OOC] WC GM: Shield Armor is tier 7 mail w/extra EVA
[OOC] Hector: omg
[OOC] ORN: I'm wearing it
Cassandra_Lionheart looks at the Shield Armor and gakws.
Hector takes the Shield Armor!
[OOC] ORN: er, well, one I bought already I mean
Cassandra Lionheart: »;
[OOC] Hector: I like Eva. :3
[OOC] Cassandra Lionheart: I like tanking….That is Tanking equip
[OOC] Felicia: What?
[OOC] PeterDracos: Psh, ORN's the tank, I've never seen you tank
[OOC] Felicia: You don't tank shit >.>
[OOC] Cassandra Lionheart: …Wrong room…
[OOC] Felicia: lulz
[OOC] PeterDracos: =D
Eric Lionheart: "Hmm."
[OOC] Cassandra Lionheart: And I'm not on WoW either…
Hector: "Pak, throw up a pile a'darkness for me to hide behind while I put this armor on, 'kay?"
Cassandra Lionheart: "Anybody else want these speed drinks?"
[OOC] PeterDracos: Sakha, tell Pak not to!
ORN will grab 2
[OOC] PeterDracos: By the way, what got found and salvaged? Last I saw was the Part.
Pak: "Oh! Kay."
Pak makes some shadowstuff.
[OOC] WC GM: Nick up please?
Hector: "Thanks a lot. :D"
Cassandra_Lionheart looks at the last 2 Speek drinks "Can I take them?"
Hector goes behind it and changes armor as quickly as it's possible to do.
[OOC] Riia: Sorry, forgot entirely
[OOC] Riia: Hector- if I were you I'd have gone INTO the shadow, the building is made of ice.
3520 Gil for each member of the party can also be found.
[OOC] WC GM: 9160 XP each too.
[OOC] Pak: Level~?
[OOC] Riia: I don't think so, though I may have neglected to update my charsheet.
[OOC] Felicia: Yeah. Should be anyway.
Pak o.o!
Pak suddenly feels… strange!
[OOC] WC GM: Total 452209 XP. Level 43 is 451500 XP.
[OOC] WC GM: So, yes, level.
Pak: "Waaah~! @.@
Felicia: "…?"
ORN: "Now for the Techschools…."
Hector thinks those moogle-shaped shadows outside can not see through the wall…probably.
Cassandra_Lionheart holds her head again
[OOC] ORN: hector's already attacking them?
[OOC] WC GM: No. He's changing behind shadowstuff.
[OOC] ORN: I know ;p
[OOC] Hector: Stupid sexy Hector.
[OOC] WC GM: Which means he's concealed from those in the room, but only the ice wall conceals him from the outside.
[OOC] Hector: Feels like he's wearing nothing at all, nothing at all, NOTHING AT ALL.
Cassandra Lionheart: "Argh…It felt like something rushed into my mind…"
[OOC] Hector: Besides, it's not like he took ALL his clothes off.
[OOC] Pak: !
[OOC] Pak: Woah wait
[OOC] Pak: Someone made all the gambler stuff WAY easier
[OOC] Hector: Altered calculations under your nose?!
Eric Lionheart: "…"
[OOC] Pak: Like, you can actually succeed at this stuff now!
Cassandra_Lionheart stumbles to one knee…
Eric Lionheart: "ORN, I do hope you don't plan to attack the moogles."
ORN: "Techschools do these things to harm others. Their use of automatons is precisely an attempt at washing off responsibility"
Hector: "They're not hostiles, though."
ORN: "The Creators taught This Unit many of their dirty tricks."
ORN: "Would you consider Grav non-hostile simply because he empowers the trio rather than assaulting directly?"
Eric Lionheart: "I would be directly opposed if you attack the moogles."
Moogles: "Do you think it was right to sleep them in the meditation room?""What, just because people can gather their thoughts and train in their sleep?""You'd think they'd WANT that.""Still…"
[OOC] Alden: There are too many mes in this room
[OOC] ORN: well there go two of your clones
[OOC] WC GM: That better?
Hector facepalms.
Pak: ">.>"
Pak: "Train in our sleep? Huh~?"
ORN: "Eric. This Unit appreciates your efforts at transforming hostiles into non-hostiles directly. However, these are Techschools. They are not civilised beings capable of understanding such things. They cower behind machinae"
Cassandra Lionheart: "ORN!!! Stop that!"
Eric Lionheart: "I don't see them behind those guns."
Riia blinks and wonders
ORN: "They are behind the wall."
Eric Lionheart: "Is the wall a machine?"
ORN: "Not the guns. Viera stood behind their guns. They were civilised."
Riia holds up a sign: "How are your creators different?"
ORN: "The Creators do not use Machinae, and actually bothered to teach This Series, rather than program it."
Eric Lionheart: "Anyways, you will not attack those moogles…I would be forced to defend them instead of you since they have not attacked us in any way."
ORN: "Except with their guns just now."
Eric Lionheart: "Prove it."
ORN points at the scrapheaps around them
ORN: "This Group just did. Can you prove they did NOT create, program and then set these upon This Group?"
Eric Lionheart: "You can't prove they programmed them to attack us only."
Riia holds up a sign: "How bad were we hurt?"
ORN: "You are correct. They may very well have built them far more indiscriminate."
Felicia: "…"
Cassandra Lionheart: "We were not hurt at all."
Hector sighs. "We're splitting hairs about somethin' that doesn't need to be discussed. Let's just keep movin' already."
Riia follows that with "If this were an attack, then Eric would be too busy to argue with you"
Pak: "They gave us the schematics. >_>"
[OOC] Riia: Also, Hector, ORN will agree that it doesn't need to be discussed. They attacked us. We need to fight them. Period.
Pak: "So… uh, yeah."
[OOC] Hector: And I'm saying we should ADVANCE THE PLOT.
Eric Lionheart: "Do you honestly think they are a threat if they gave us the plans to those guns?"
[OOC] Riia: Eh, that's metagaming
One machine remains in the room. That must be the convertor.
ORN: "… … … … perhaps not a threat per-se now that they have been disarmed…"
Felicia walks next to ORN and Eric.
[OOC] Hector: No it's not.
Riia wanders over to the converter and looks at its controls.))
[OOC] Hector: I'm not saying it lierally.
[OOC] Hector: Hector = man of action, not words.
[OOC] Hector: Too many words means "SHUT UP AND LET'S GO"
[OOC] ORN: save for the whole command thing. you know, words of action ;p
Eric Lionheart: "Anyways, lets check out that converter."
Riia blinks and taps the machine lightly, startled
Pak: "Converter~"
[OOC] Sakha: He uses words to start his action - no problem
Hector gives the converter a sharp look, then shrugs. "This' outta my league. Riia, you handle it."
Riia starts tapping at keys, and despite not even knowing the language, starts putting in orders for parts…
[OOC] ORN: words ARE the action ;p
Riia holds up some gil, showing them to the party, and puts them in the proper slot.
[OOC] Sakha: No no, he can talk and then act
Eric_Lionheart observes.
[OOC] Riia: You know who ORN really reminds me of?
[OOC] Riia: Anyone here ever seen Stealth?
The machine seems foreign, arcane - and yet Riia's use of it speaks of practice with it.
[OOC] ORN: ? nope. anime? movie? series?
Eric Lionheart: "Hmm…"
Pak: "o.o"
[OOC] Riia: Movie, live-action American.
[OOC] Eric Lionheart: I remember that movie.
[OOC] Riia: ORN is so Tin-Man.
[OOC] ORN: ?
[OOC] Riia: Tin-Man =‘`=`` UCAV, AI-controlled plane that goes rogue, mostly due to not enough of a training process
[OOC] Eric Lionheart: I can see the similarities.
[OOC] Pak: …
[OOC] Pak: >_<
[OOC] Pak: Why did you bring that movie up
[OOC] Riia: Is the machine able to crank out returns yet, or will we have to wait?
Cassandra_Lionheart sighs
[OOC] WC GM: It can crank out returns quickly.
Pak: "…!"
Pak O_O!
Pak: "What the HECK!?"
[OOC] Riia: Eeexcellent, not that I can use my parts yet anyway.
Pak STARES at the machine.
[OOC] WC GM: A few minutes per order - less for small stuff like potions, maybe 10 for an armor piece or weapon.
Pak runs all around it, examining it from all angles.
Pak: "What… what is this thing?! Where did you find it?!"
The machine is like nothing Pak has ever seen before, although a few scraps from that rocket seemed similar.
The Vieran rocket, that is.
Pak o_o
Pak: "This thing…"
[OOC] Riia: Are the Moogles in yet, or are they still hiding outside the building?
Pak: "This thing is like me!"
Cassandra Lionheart: "How so Pak?"
The moogles are still outside, unable to hear Pak’s questions.
Riia blinks at Pak, confused
ORN: "???"
Eric Lionheart: "…?"
Felicia: "…Wah?"
Pak: "You put money in and stuff comes out."
Pak holds up a 25 gil piece.
Cassandra_Lionheart blinks "Right.."
Pak flicks it into the air.
[OOC] WC GM: Be grateful Fyl didn't hear Pak say that. :P
Riia pats the machine, mimes using it, and jerks her thumb up at the moon-
Riia: ….
Pak rolled up 1d10: 9
Riia lets her jaw drop
[OOC] Riia: Whoa
[OOC] ORN: because she'd forcefeed him?
[OOC] Cassandra Lionheart: lol
[OOC] Riia: Suddenly we see how he can summon Bunnygirl
[OOC] WC GM: She might test that theory, yes.
[OOC] Hector: I am not going to be perverted about this.
Pak rolled up 1d100: 71
Pak rolled up 1d100: 3
[OOC] Hector: I will maintain regularity.
[OOC] Pak: Pass, under the new formulae.
Pak rolled up 1d10: 7
Pak summons a HUGE ROCK!
Eric Lionheart: "…"
Riia holds up one hand towards Pak, one hand towards the machine, and looks from one to the other, her mind absent in thought….
Pak: "@_@"
Pak: "…"
Eric Lionheart: "Where did the coin go?"
Pak: "I don't know what to do with this."
The rock looks tasty to the hungry ORN.
ORN: "… ."
ORN: "… ."
Pak tosses it to ORN.
ORN: "… are you gonna eat that?"
ORN catches it and immediately spikes through and assimilates it
Cassandra Lionheart: "Hmmm..we can feed ORN here."
Eric Lionheart: "Anyways…is that machine capible of creating items made of cloth or similar lightweight materials?"
[OOC] WC GM: Survival check, anyone who has it - at a bit of a penalty.
ORN rolled 1d100 and got 67 ( Total: 67 )
[OOC] ORN: fail by 9 before penalty, bit busy eating here
Pak: "…The coin vanishes."
Pak: "And then magic comes out."
Pak: "In other words…"
Pak points! "This machine is just like me!"
Hector rolled 1d100 and got 30 ( Total: 30 )
Pak: "OR whatever it is that takes the coins!"
[OOC] Hector: Pass by 15 with no penalty.
Cassandra Lionheart: "No Pak…you can not make rocks to feed ORN."
Riia nods at ORN
Riia rolled 1d100 and got 22 ( Total: 22 )
Hector: "Uh, guys?"
Eric Lionheart: "What is it?"
[OOC] Riia: Pass by 18, sorry about delay
Hector: "I just realized that we haven't eaten today, yet I'm not hungry."
Pak: "Huh?"
Pak: "…"
Eric Lionheart: "…"
Pak: "Neither am I."
Eric Lionheart: "He's right."
Hector: "Orn IS eating, so he must be hungry."
Riia holds up a sign: "ORN always hungry."
ORN nods at Riia
ORN: "Additional Mass can always come in handy"
Felicia: "Indeed."
Hector: "But Orn's not made of what we're made of."
ORN: "Much self was additionally lost detonating for additional altitude while assimilated to the Trombe Unit."
ORN: "?"
Riia blinks
Riia grins and looks at ORN
Eric Lionheart: "This does not explain what is going on now, however."
ORN: "do you not consume things made of earth and dirt, just, processed through life forms?"
Riia holds up a sign to everyone else: "Where do Moogles grow food?"
Eric Lionheart: "…"
ORN looks at Riia
ORN: "The hearts of their enemies and the innocent of course"
Hector: "I was thinkin' they'd just fly around 'n catch birds or flyin' fish or something."
[OOC] ORN: just a FEW misconceptions
Riia replaces that with "No soil for plants…hydro maybe, but…"
Eric Lionheart: "Ignoring ORN…I don't think they can grow things…"
Riia follows that with "ORN wrong but not all way, plants need rock."
ORN: "hm"
Sakha: "… They live on Air."
Riia puts as an aside to ORN: "Plants eat air."
ORN: "Ah?"
ORN: "Is there something to eat in air other than the occasional dust?"
Riia looks at rest of party: "Moogles must use machine…or magic…"
Felicia: "Well there's the air itself…"
Cassandra_Lionheart sighs and thinks
Sakha: "It's Aer."
Riia blinks at Sakha…
Felicia: "…Yes, Air."
Eric Lionheart: "We require air to breathe…maybe air is literally food to the Moogles, and it's effecting us as such being here."
Pak: "Hmm."
Sakha: "The spirits change the races and their land. So Aer has changed this place."
ORN: "They've fallen so far as to consume even the spirits?"
Eric_Lionheart sighs.
Riia frowns and obviously ignores ORN
Eric_Lionheart ignores too.
[OOC] WC GM: Quite a few people IRL would love to live on nothing but spirits - as in booze. >_>
[OOC] Riia: There's a reason beer is called liquid bread.
Hector: "Hm."
Eric Lionheart: "Somehow we've been affected, however. This is most intresting."
[OOC] ORN: indeed. ale's quite full of good stuff. long as you don't drink just that atop all your meals, otherwise hello gut
Riia frowns at Sakha, but…but shrugs, leaving her words unwritten on the sign.
Felicia: "I don't see why you'd be surprised, the smaller spirits get used all the time for all sorts of things. To replace sustenance is just one of the more useful ones."
Riia blinks and tears up
Eric Lionheart: "Either way, it is a advantage to us…we can spend more time figuring things out instead of stopping to eat…hmm? What's wrong Riia?"
Riia sighs: "Too much like Milf"
Pak: "Ohh…"
Pak is still STARING at the Converter.
Pak: "…"
Pak: "…How does this work?"
Felicia: "Don't you just drop gil into it?"
Riia shrugs and gestures towards outside the building, then pauses and grabs a hold of herself.
ORN: "?"
Pak: "No, I mean."
Cassandra Lionheart: "What is up Riia?"
ORN stares at riia curiously
Eric Lionheart: "Hmm."
Riia taps the coin slot, and the item requestor, then steps back and holds up her sign:
Pak: "I drop Gil into empty space and magical power flows into me."
Riia: "Masters use this. Maybe theirs. I not know how."
Pak: "Masters?"
Pak looks at Riia.
Riia jerks a thumb up at the moon.
Pak: "Oh."
Riia replaces her sign with "The bastards who used my people as a meat shield."
Eric Lionheart: "Are you saying there is more of these machines on the moon?"
Pak: "Those guys."
Sakha: "The creators of the Viera."
Riia nods at Eric
Pak: "…"
Cassandra_Lionheart blinks
Pak: "If they invented this…"
Pak: "Maybe they know why I'm some sorta crazy magical mutant!"
Riia shrugs at Pak
Cassandra_Lionheart looks at Pak "Lucky?"
Riia writes something on her sign, but doesn't hold it up
Pak aha~ >:3
Pak looks at the sign.
Hector rubs his chin, thinking.
Eric Lionheart: "Anyways…
Eric Lionheart: "
ORN: "For Creators they seem rather lacking in tact and friendliness, given their hostility…"
Sakha: "If you're a mutant, what am I?"
Riia instead points at Pak, points at the machine, traces a line on the ground between them, and sets the sign on the floor, where it reads: "Bunnygirl?"
[OOC] Riia: Nonmutant
Pak: "o.o"
[OOC] Riia: Mutation is random, silly Sakha
Pak: "…?"
Hector: "Pak, you're no mutant. And neither is Sakha. You're mithras. THat's what counts, I think."
Pak: "That's curious."
Pak: "…A bunny-boy?"
Riia shrugs elaborately
ORN: "… Is it not just a style of magick use?"
Pak: "Nope."
Felicia shrugs.
Pak: "I'm the only person I've met ever that uses magic in my style."
Felicia: "Pak is Pak."
ORN: "You convert coins into random effects."
Pak: "That's why this is kinda exciting~"
ORN: "Then all this means is you are the creator of that style. Many things can be discovered by accident"
Sakha: "I think it's just his personality. Magic runs in the family, but he has no focus so his appears randomly."
Hector tousles Pak's hair. "Don't think about it too much. Just be who you are."
Pak: "It's still a connection."
Riia nods
Pak: "So…"
Eric Lionheart: "Hmm. Do you have a name for your magical style, Pak?"
Pak: "If the Masters created This Machine, and the Viera…"
Pak: "Huh?"
Riia holds up a sign: "Maybe if we look around, we can find how yours work."
Pak: "…Not really."
Pak nods.
Eric Lionheart: "Most magical styles have a name. White Magic, Black Magic, Time Magic, and so forth."
Pak: "Well, there is one thing I forgot."
Pak: "I can speak Viera. oxo"
Pak: "Maybe it was something I picked up while studying their language…"
Pak: "No clue…"
Pak sighs and mutters. "Hmm… It's really mysterious…" He says this in Vieran.
Riia nods deeply
Pak: "We'll look around."
Riia sighs, stretches, and gathers her parts from the machine.
Pak: "Riia, examine this machine while the party uses it to convert things?"
ORN with help with systems if possible
Eric Lionheart: "Can it be used to make things I can use?"
Riia bites her lip…then nods.
Riia nods at Eric.
Eric Lionheart: "Excellent."
Cassandra_Lionheart looks at it, and wonders also
So far, only Riia has been able to use the convertor. It seems to require knowledge of specific instructions and combinations.
Felicia: "What all does it do, anyway? Can it perform modifications?"
ORN observes and tries to learn then
Riia looks it over for a second, then frowns at Felicia and shakes her head.
ORN will see if he can learn by assimilation once they're done so as not to break it
Riia picks up her sign: "Ask Moogles if they built?"
Pak nods and walks over. "Hay moogles!"
[OOC] Riia: All your HP and MP are restored! ….but you're still hungry.
ORN pokes the machine - only to feel it trying to assimilate him!
[OOC] Riia: Also, hay is for horses.
Pak holds up the radio.
Riia looks at some odd output from the machine…
Pak: "Did you make this machine?"
The moogles idle around. "It got quiet in there." "Did you win?" "They're still alive - of course they won."
Cassandra Lionheart: "No we died, and are ghosts! What do you think?"
ORN: "… ."
Moogles: "Us?""Well, not us precisely.""Other moogles did.""They're dead now."
ORN: "This thing is troublesome"
Felicia: "Ah." She shrugs. "Nothing of particular use for me, then." she wanders to join Pak.
ORN pulls back and darkens
The machine does not follow once ORN disengages.
Eric Lionheart: "Hmm."
ORN has taken 4 damage in the process.
Pak: "…Other Moogles did? Oh?"
[OOC] WC GM: It only got a nibble.
Riia traces her fingers over the places where ORN's touch has disrupted the smooth flow of the machine, frowning…
Pak: "So you can't make more?"
The machine quickly restores itself.
Riia shudders away from…it…
Moogles: "Well, we could.""The designs are at the main library.""We think."
Moogles: "But we haven't had to.""This one works just fine.""We hadn't even needed to use it for a while."
Riia thinks for a moment, then shudders away from it in disgust.
Eric Lionheart: "Such a machine would be useful to dupicate, I think."
ORN pokes Riia
Riia steels herself to her task and starts taking orders from the party.
ORN: "This Thing is capable of assimilation to a massive degree"
Riia frowns at ORN and nods.
Riia holds up her sign: "Maybe Creators not only ones to figure it out…."
[OOC] Hector: So…is this thing the item shop?
[OOC] Riia: Yup
ORN: "Are there countermeasures? Also, how common is this system?"
[OOC] WC GM: Basically. Autovendor.
Sakha: "I'd like to see the plans and check them for magical applications…"
[OOC] Hector: Like in Tales.
[OOC] Hector: They're EVERYWHERE in Symphonia.
[OOC] Hector: Every damned Desian base has one.
[OOC] WC GM: Riia's the only one who can use it - not that that's a major limitation, I suspect. ;)
[OOC] WC GM: And you'll find them here. For a reason.
[OOC] Riia: She can hear, she likes to be helpful, and she tries not to be a dsck
[OOC] Hector: Half-elves? :P
Pak: "Okay!"
Pak heads back.
[OOC] WC GM: Nope. You'll see - eventually.
[OOC] Hector: What's our level 43 avail?
[OOC] Eric Lionheart: 40.
[OOC] WC GM: 40
Pak: "We're gonna go to the main library! The designs for this machine are there. :3"
[OOC] Eric Lionheart: Not enough for me to get some stuff I want…
[OOC] Hector: Nice.
Riia nods at Pak.
Cassandra_Lionheart grabs the other 2 Speed Drinks if no one objects….
Riia holds up a sign: "We need to find Aerie, and Sight-booster plans at Library."
Pak: "Sounds like a good idea. Though… we don't actually know where the Library is."
Cassandra Lionheart: "Well, ask the Moogles."
Felicia: "We did."
Riia holds up sign: "Remember? They not know."
Eric Lionheart: "Maybe we could take turns using Sight magic, Pak, and see what we can find."
Cassandra Lionheart: "Doh. Okay."
Riia replaces that with "….it IS on cloud, you know…"
[OOC] Hector: Hm. I can't upgrade anything.
Cassandra_Lionheart walks outside and begins to look again
[OOC] Riia: And I still can't afford Bindsnipe ;.;
[OOC] Riia: Not with Invention to buy, too…
ORN will order an Edincoat and a guard bracelet, will sell off protect ring and shield armor
The convertor processes the leftover equipment into more materials.
[OOC] Hector: I could get a new cape.
[OOC] Hector: Lose 5 Eva, gain 15 MEva.
[OOC] Hector: or gain 5 Eva/MEva.
Hector sells off his Diamond Armor, at least.
Riia wonders if she can rig some bypasses or something to get a discount for the party
[OOC] Riia: Trade check but with Systems or Invent
Pak does his unspecified shopping.
[OOC] Pak: I'll take care of anything I want later.
Cassandra_Lionheart thinks and sighs
The convertor seems to be immune to that sort of rigging. The recipes are as they are.
[OOC] Riia: RATS.
Riia hears a squeak.
Riia blinks, her ears perking up
[OOC] WC GM: Couldn't pass it up. ^_^;
Cassandra Lionheart: "Come on guys, library?"
Eric Lionheart: "We don't have time to be sitting around."
Eric Lionheart: "Order what you want and lets go."
Riia quietly debates invasive research, though she'll hold off until the party has what it needs.
ORN was done here quick
Eric_Lionheart orders 5 X-Ethers and 10 Hyper Ethers.
Pak looks around.
Pak: "…Did anyone else hear a squeak?"
Cassandra Lionheart: "I was not listening, Pak."
Pak: "…Okay."
Another squeak sounds.
Pak eep?"
Eric Lionheart: "…"
[OOC] Riia: It sounded…delicious.
ORN: "?"
Pak peeks outside.
Pak: "…What's happenin'?"
Riia cranes her ears to find where the squeak is coming from.))
The moogles are beginning to disperse.
Moogles: "Not much.""What's happening with you?""Everything okay in there?"
Pak: "We're fine. But we hear a squeak sound…"
Riia eventually locates it in the ceiling. Whatever activated the turrets must have fled into there.
[OOC] Riia: MOWS.
[OOC] WC GM: Nope. Mows chrr.
[OOC] ORN: indeed they chrr
Eric Lionheart: "Hmm."
Hector: "Huh."
[OOC] ORN: no idea what chrr sounds like tho
Riia looks along the length of the ceiling….
[OOC] WC GM: Say it out loud. That's roughly what it sounds like.
[OOC] WC GM: Awareness, Riia.
Riia waves up at the ceiling and looks at the mages in the party
Riia rolled 1d100 and got 4 ( Total: 4 )
[OOC] Riia: Pass.
Looking clooosely…Riia can find a few places in the ceiling that are stone, instead of ice. She can even see fuzzy shadows flitting about - small, bird-like things.
Riia frowns and glances over at ORN.
Riia taps him, then pulls out her gun and uses it to tap some of the stone places.
Riia then mimes eating and looks disingenious.
[OOC] Riia: Oh, I have NO ulterior motives!
ORN nods
[OOC] WC GM: Lore: Mineral for ORN.
ORN: "Ah… do you wish simply eating, or would you rather crushing first?"
ORN rolled 1d100 and got 10 ( Total: 10 )
[OOC] ORN: pass by 82
ORN: "… This wall was formed less than a day ago."
[OOC] Riia: Also in retrospect - that autovend, the Valu-Rep, that made out of ice or metal? My brain is telling me brass, but from my experience my brain and the GM's aren't linked
Riia frowns
ORN: "whatever created it likely produced it in organic fashion. This was grown."
Riia pulls her gun back and checks to see that it's empty.
Riia slides a bullet in…
[OOC] Riia: I hear that every time I use any automatic checkout machine anywhere.
Eric Lionheart: "What are you two doing now?"
Hector: "Hm."
[OOC] WC GM: The convertor you've been using was made of ice.
ORN will assimilate it, and then needle and detonate the inside portion before shattering it
Riia holds up a sign to Eric: "Please, try to keep up."
[OOC] ORN: last it being the wall of course
Several angry squeaks come from the ceiling!
Pak: "There's something in the ceiling!"
Riia aims her gun, kneeling and waiting.
Eric Lionheart: "…"
ORN extends the crystalisation to as much of the room as possible then
Cassandra Lionheart: "Oh boy…Incoming!"
ORN will spike whatever's in there to the best of his ability and let the shockwaves sort them out
ORN: "Gaia"
Eric Lionheart: "…And you have a valid reason to be destroying things why exactly?"
A small flock of angry birds pour from the ceiling.
[OOC] WC GM: Lore: Monster, anyone.
ORN rolled 1d100 and got 37 ( Total: 37 )
[OOC] Riia: Bioweapons count?
[OOC] Riia: Or Biology?
[OOC] ORN: oh wait, don't have it. defaulted and thus fail. they sound damn familiar though; those rock bat things
ORN deathglares at Eric
[OOC] WC GM: Not for Riia, since these aren't things from her previous training.
[OOC] Riia: Rats.
Eric_Lionheart glares back.
ORN: "Listen to Riia. This Wall is partially Gaia construction"
Cassandra Lionheart: "ORN, Eric! Not now!"
Hector: "We dealt with Gaia a while ago, though. What's up with that?"
Riia signs up: "Made. Recent. Things above - maybe set off defenses."
ORN: "Attempting to minimise the number which can form. Protect from boulders if you can"
Riia then replaces: "Which we destroyed. Now we are?"
Pak rolled 1d100 and got 100 for a total of 100
Eric Lionheart: "…You are attacking some sort of bird that looks harmless to me."
[OOC] Pak: …
Riia takes a deep breath and adds more:
[OOC] Pak: …Should I GF? >_>;
Riia builds: "Moogles want converter safe from enemy."
[OOC] WC GM: Probably. We're almost at end of session.
[OOC] WC GM: So GF wasted if not used anyway.
Pak rolled 1d100 and got 97 for a total of 97
Riia follows that with "Enemy HAS converters."
[OOC] Pak: …
[OOC] Pak: …pass by 1.
[OOC] Pak: >_>;
Riia then adds "So why need keep safe?"
[OOC] Pak: Though I think this is a botch, so.
Riia finishes with "So we must defend for them."
[OOC] WC GM: Anyone else?
[OOC] Cassandra Lionheart: I can default?
Eric Lionheart rolled 1d100 and got 57 ( Total: 57 )
[OOC] Riia: Isn't Lore learned only?
[OOC] WC GM: It is, but if you have Scholastic affinity, you can try.
[OOC] Cassandra Lionheart: lore on monster
ORN will try to calm the rock bat things down (I forget what they were called) with monstertalk
[OOC] Eric Lionheart: I can default on Lore though that is afail.
[OOC] Riia: Ah.
[OOC] ORN: though they still freaked and went hostile last time out of fear
[OOC] Eric Lionheart: Did WC at any point state they are rock bats?
ORN recognizes that these are not actually rock bats, though they seem similar.
Pak: "Ice bird~?"
[OOC] WC GM: Roll monster talk if you want.
ORN: "… no, not quite the same. The bats could be reasoned with. These are new, but similar in design."
ORN rolled 1d100 and got 81 ( Total: 81 )
[OOC] ORN: GF that
ORN rolled 1d100 and got 82 ( Total: 82 )
[OOC] Riia: GF hates us, or sugar does
[OOC] ORN: fail by 12 after gf
[OOC] Eric Lionheart: You shouldn't use such a bot.
[OOC] Eric Lionheart: It obviously is made of fail.
[OOC] ORN: highwind hates us too though
[OOC] WC GM: So does Chessa
The birds look at the convertor as one. It changes from ice to stone…and shatters.
ORN: "Eric. Gaia Barrier now!"
Then they turn on the party…
