EC Session 6.7

Evening, Merch 1 Minday.
You stand at the entrance of the largest building any of you can clearly remember seeing - Plainsburg included.
[OOC] Hector: Whoever doppled me last week, did I gain any limit?
[OOC] ORN: it was a really really short fight ;.;
[OOC] WC GM: I think Hector was not hit
[OOC] ORN: but ask terra
[OOC] Hector: Wow.
[OOC] Hector: Alright, just checking.
Pak: "o.o"
[OOC] Riia: Hicks stoned himself, iirc, or maybe it was Wedge - it was awesome
[OOC] Hector: 'cause I'm at 528/558/837/1116 right now.
Riia looks around, a bit bewildered….
[OOC] WC GM: Hicks did
[OOC] Sakha: I used a soft from Hector, got 2 back and a Remedy for him
[OOC] Eric Lionheart: And again the group failed to realize that if they don't destroy the trio they won't come back as quickly. >.>
[OOC] Riia: Eh
[OOC] Sakha: No one has Auto-Reflect do they?
The factory made of ice stretches off, passages winding this way and that. Of course there is no map, and your hosts have already departed into the building.
[OOC] Hector: I don't.
Eric Lionheart: "Hmm."
Cassandra_Lionheart looks and tries to follow the Moogles.
[OOC] Riia: Besides, we might have been talking a lot, and getting stuff out of it - but we were IN COMBAT and just because he hadn't managed to do any significant damage didn't mean he COULDN'T.
[OOC] ORN: actually we tried that way way back when eric. they off themselves, escape, undo bonds, whatever you wanna call it. you'd have to tame all three at once. and we didn't have you for taming back then
Hector: "Hey, Cassie. Hold up. Might not be the best idea to go in alone."
[OOC] Eric Lionheart: Plus they are Notorious.
Cassandra_Lionheart nods and stops
[OOC] Eric Lionheart: Both in monster type and due to their actions.
Felicia: "…Or we should follow them, so as not to get lost by ourselves."
Cassandra Lionheart: "Just trying to keep them n view. No worries I guess."
Hector: "We all gotta stick together 'cause, man, I'm thinkin' this place is gonna confuse us all worse than anythin'."
[OOC] ORN: yeah. which makes a lot of the whole 'stopping them without the killing' really hard. they're immune to being disabled
Hector: "Even if we follow 'em, who knows if we could keep up?"
ORN: "… None of this seems of any taste."
ORN looks at hector
Felicia: "They are moogles."
ORN holds hand up at his head level
Cassandra_Lionheart nods and comes back to the group
ORN then brings it down to moogle head level
The party manages to follow one of the moogles to a work room.
ORN: "This Group's Strides are longer."
[OOC] Felicia: Haw
The moogle looks up. "Can I help you?"
Pak: "Uhh."
Hector: "Point."
Cassandra Lionheart: "Hello, sir. So, what is done in here?"
Moogle: "That's ma'am!"
ORN grumbles something
Pak is looking around curiously. Hopefully he'll see some Converters around.
[OOC] Riia: Heheh
Moogle: "And, just planning and design."
[OOC] Hector: All moogles are traps and reverse traps all at the same time.
Riia is right with Pak on that one…
Cassandra_Lionheart turns away really quickly and is a bit flustered.
[OOC] WC GM: Indeed
Pak: "Design?"
Pak suddenly starts looking at stuff.
Pak: "What sorta designs~?"
ORN: "Deathtraps mostly"
Moogle: "Well, right here, I'm working on the next generation of convertors."
Pak: "!"
Pak LOOK.
Unrecognizable crystalline parts are strewn about the table in front of the moogle.
Hector: "Huh. Neat."
Riia blinks as her attention is called to the moogle.
Pak > LOOK AT NEXT GENERATION CONVERTERS
ORN touches one to test
Cassandra Lionheart: "Sounds really good."
[OOC] ORN: sounds, perhaps. let's see how it tastes
ORN finds…ice.
ORN: "… "
ORN stares solemnly at cassie and shakes his head no
The parts look…well, they're definitely mechanical. And magitek. That's all that can easily be determined just now.
Riia tries to see if there is enough of the structure yet to get an inkling of how the converter works…
Pak: "How… how do these work?"
Hector puts his hands in his pockets and looks about the workshop, the area that's not the moogle+converter parts.
Moogle: "Insert gil, program configuration, get stuff. Just like any other convertor. Except these are smaller, more portable."
Cassandra_Lionheart looks at ORN "You need a better mass converter yourself. If your going to keep transforming, you need something that will keep you stable."
ORN: "What of the assimilation section?"
ORN looks at cassie and points at her
ORN: "This Unit Already has"
Hector sees tools. Except for being made mostly of ice, they could be any Plainsburg workshop from back home.
Pak: "No, I mean…'
Riia: >=D
Pak waves his hand.
Riia looks for plans…
Pak: "How does… I mean…"
Pak mmph.
Pak: "I'm probably not smart enough for this. >_O"
ORN: "However, these did seem extremely voracious, which did peak curiosity"
Cassandra_Lionheart nods at ORN
Riia sees some carvings on ice. The symbols don't seem very coherent, but they are obviously plans - vaguely resembling the parts on the table.
Sakha eyes the parts. "Is any magic involved in it at all?"
Moogle: "Of course! What, you think it could distill gil into energy without magic?"
Riia eyes the carvings and frowns…
Moogle: "Why, the distillation and reformation magics are the very hearts of the process."
ORN looks at Sakha
Pak: "o.o"
Pak: "Tell me about them!"
Sakha: "Hmmm…. do you have any books on the theories?"
ORN: "… ah."
ORN stops waiting for the explanation
[OOC] Riia: Betcha they're at the library…
Moogle: "Yes, at the library."
[OOC] Riia: Also, *pique
Hector: "Well, I wouldn't mind a side trip to the library at some point."
Riia sighs
ORN: "Libraries are always useful"
Hector: "I feel like I've learned all I can 'bout some stuff, and I gotta fill my head with MORE stuff."
Riia holds sign: "Need map to find Aerie"
Sakha: "I wonder if you can also use magic to summon items that already exist in the same plain as you…"
ORN: "Where is the assimilation system?"
Riia follows that with "plans for map at library"
Cassandra_Lionheart lets everybody talk.
The moogle holds up three half-melted parts. "Right here…if I can figure out how to get them to stay together."
ORN nod at Riia
ORN: "Why do they refuse to stay together?"
Riia hmms and looks closely.
Pak: "Hmm…"
Hector: "You need some magical glue or somethin'?"
Hector: "Or…sticky plasma?"
Moogle: "They keep melting from the…"
The moogle looks at Hector. "What did you say?!?"
ORN nod at hector
Riia blinks and hmms, thinking to herself…
Hector: "Sticky plasma, or magical glue?"
Moogle: "Sticky plasma. How do you make plasma sticky?"
ORN: "Sakha can create such. Sakha is also quite efficient at ensuring things remain cold"
Hector: "I really have no idea." *he thumbs to Sakha* "She's got the skills for that kinda stuff."
ORN: "Alternatively, the use of more edible materials would avoid the 'melting'"
Moogle: "…what, like meat? But that couldn't focus energy."
Eric_Lionheart hmms thoughtfully and observes.
Hector sighs. "He, uh…eats rocks."
Hector: "And crystals 'n things like that."
Hector: "Not the same as you 'n me, that's for sure."
Sakha: "It'd be an interesting endeavour…" She summons on the element of Fire to create Plasma as a sticky gelatinous substance
ORN: "Unlike certain barbaric species which subject their tastes to watery blandness"
Cassandra_Lionheart looks at Eric and shrugs here shoulders "ORN just needs crystals."
ORN looks at Cassie
The moogle watches Sakha with obvious interest.
ORN: "At least This Unit does not melt."
[OOC] WC GM: MAG check to make it sticky.
Sakha rolled 1d100 and got 37 for a total of 37
Pak: "We'll have to hit the library after all. n.n;"
Sakha does indeed make plasma napalm.
Felicia: "…Hum."
Eric Lionheart: "Intresting."
ORN sparkles and nods
Hector: "No matter how many times I see that, it never stops amazin' me."
Moogle: "Could you write up how you did that and add it to the library?"
Hector: "Magic's some crazy stuff. wish I had the talent for it, but I gues I gotta settle for whackin' people to death."
Sakha: "I'm not the most mechanically minded however…" She sets the sticky plasma on the counter.
Pak: ">_>"
Eric Lionheart: "Hmm, maybe I could learn how to do that…"
Pak wonders.
ORN: "… ."
Pak: "Hey, hey, you guys."
Hector: "Mm?"
Cassandra Lionheart: "Yes, Pak?"
Pak: "Not YOU guys."
ORN will try and shape a chunk of self into the same as those parts
Pak is pointing at the moogles.
Hector: "You gotta be more specific, kid."
Pak: "I learned how to convert stuff from a moogle."
Sakha: "Hmm… well I could perhaps write up something brief. Do you have the basics of Plasma in you're literature?"
Pak: "Can people use the kind of magic needed to convert material?"
The sticky plasma melts the counter a bit, until the moogle scoops it up with a bowl.
Moogle: "Not…really, to both questions."
Pak: "…"
Pak: "What?"
Pak: "But I can!"
Pak :X
ORN can easily mimic the shape of the parts, but the magic inherent in them is not so easily observed.
Sakha: "Ten I should write a more detailed account of the basics of Plasma…"
The moogle looks at Pak. "…say what?"
ORN hands the mimiced parts to Sakha
ORN: "These should suffice for your plasma"
Sakha blinks. "Huh?"
Pak: "I can convert stuff."
Pak nod.
Riia frowns
ORN looks at Pak
Riia holds up a sign: "Won't plasma melt the parts?"
[OOC] Eric Lionheart: BRB.
Pak: "…Well, not exactly the same way, but still."
ORN looks at Riia and points at the chunks of self he made
ORN looks back at Pak
Sakha can create things, but she sucks at putting them together. "Hand that to the Moogle."
ORN: "Could you convert this table into something worthy of This Unit's tastes?"
Pak: "…"
Pak: "Uhh."
Pak: "…No, I don't think I can do that. >_>"
Pak: "I could see what happens, though."
Hector: "Are we even on the same page with what we're all thinkin' of?"
Pak holds his hand out.
Hector: "'cause we run inta all these language problems with every race."
Pak: "ORN~ Gimmie 200 gil and I'll try my best!"
Riia shrugs
ORN shrugs and does so
Pak flicks it up into the air, catches it…
Pak rolled 1d10 and got 5 for a total of 5
[OOC] Hector: Now might be a good a time as any to run downstairs and start lunch. Been too sick to eat until now.
[OOC] Pak: …
[OOC] Pak: Mmm… no, that's probably a bad idea. GF).)
Pak rolled 1d10 and got 1 for a total of 1
[OOC] Riia: And you wonder why ORN is the one who's always talking.
[OOC] Felicia: Man now I wish I took stone strike instead of stop :p /repeat
Pak rolled 2d100 and got 81, 1 for a total of 82
[OOC] ORN: that would've made felicia a good cook!
Pak opens a gate and a flock of chocobos charge through an open area before vanishing! Pak aims it so it doesn't hit anyone.
Pak: "…"
Pak: "…sorry ._."
Cassandra Lionheart: "Okay.."
[OOC] Riia: Controool! You must learn control!
ORN: "… … … …"
Moogle: "…how?"
ORN tries handing the modified self to Riia then since she puts things together
Cassandra Lionheart: "Pak..Next time, if you are going to make chocobos..make sure we are all warned, okay, sweetheart?"
The moogle leaps up and grabs Pak by the shoulders, bracing her feet on his pelvic bone. "HOW DID YOU DO THAT?"
Riia frowns…
[OOC] Felicia: Technically I havent used it :p
Pak uhh.
Riia tries to figure out if anything needs to be done to the ORN-made pieces to form a proper assembly.
Pak: "o.o"
[OOC] WC GM: Riia: Systems check.
Pak: "I don't know."
Riia rolled 1d100 and got 99 ( Total: 99 )
[OOC] Riia: GF
Pak: "A moogle taught me on a casino boat about how to gamble."
Riia rolled 1d100 and got 78 ( Total: 78 )
[OOC] ORN: if its systems I can try too
[OOC] ORN: if she can't manage it
Pak: "And then someone taught me how to cast magic."
Pak: "And then…"
[OOC] Riia: Aaand fail by 8.
ORN rolled 1d100 and got 31 ( Total: 31 )
Pak: "…I just started doing it that way."
[OOC] WC GM: She's got it at 70, so that's a failure even without the penalty.
[OOC] ORN: pass by 57
Riia can not quite see how to fit the jigsaw together. ORN, who made said jigsaw, does, though.
ORN: "Minor selves go this way."
Riia hands them to ORN, along with the bowl of sticky plasma
The moogle drops off. "You don't…how do…you don't just START doing it that way. You have to learn…have to know…and then start doing things for others to figure out~!"
Hector: "We're special, though."
ORN: "Ah… fused them naturally…"
ORN: "?"
ORN: "Are you claiming This Unit is incapable of putting its own Selves together?"
Pak: "I don't know HOW I started though! ;.;"
Sakha: "My brother is an uncontrolled force of nature."
ORN nod at Sakha
Riia taps ORN on the shoulder and points a thumb at Pak.
Pak whimpers, feeling chastied.
Riia shrugs and hugs the poor kitty.
Pak eep~
ORN patpats Pak and sparkles
Riia holds up a sign: "Not like you had choice"
Sakha: "Maybe we could study him and learn the structure of his magical ability?"
Pak: "That'd be fun! o.o"
[OOC] Sakha: YES! Turn your brother into a lab experiment!
[OOC] Pak: I agree!
[OOC] Pak: Let's do it~
Eric Lionheart: "Hmm."
Cassandra_Lionheart loos at the Mithra pair "okkkkaaaayyyy."
Hector: "Before we do anythin', let's make sure we've got a good blast shield 'n enough runnin' room in case somethin' goes wrong."
ORN: "… Assimilate Pak?"
ORN: "… It would make him substantially harder…"
Pak: "I like that idea!"
Moogle: "Well…we could. We've got a living unit workshop further in."
Pak: "Er, not ORN's idea."
ORN: "… ah."
Riia blinks.
Pak: "But I like the idea of being studied!"
Moogle: "We could totally take him apart and study him. Probably put him back together again in good enough shape afterwards."
Pak: "…"
Pak: "U-uhh."
[OOC] ORN: given all the other girls that 'studied' him its no wonder
Pak SHRINKS BACK.
ORN: "Negative. Pak is incapable of separation"
Pak hides. "D-don't take me apart! ;_;"
The moogle examines Pak with a clinical eye.
Pak: "I'm not a machine. >.< ORN holds that title."
Pak also, decides they REALLY shouldn't tell them about Ahiru.
ORN: "This Unit is NOT so shoddily crafted as to be machinery!"
The moogle looks at ORN. "Oh…?"
ORN: "Such titles should be reserved for techschool creations"
Cassandra Lionheart: "Pak is not some science experiment."
ORN stares back
Pak: "._."
Pak: "…I-i still wanna be studied, but I don't want to be taken apart…"
Pak whimpers.
Pak: "Sakha, do somethiiiing~"
Hector: "S'pose there's a way to do that, but we gotta figure out what it is."
ORN: "Pak refers to the form of study performed upon him by various guardswomen in the other races This Group has encountered."
ORN keeps staring back at that moogle
Hector: "That's…pretty wrong."
The moogle walks slowly around ORN, looking from all angles. "Hmm…"
Pak: "…Uhh… ORN."
Hector: "I mean, in this context. Hopin' we can get this done without takin' anyone's pants off, ya know?"
Pak: "I don't mean that either. >_O"
Felicia: "Er… Maybe they can just observe more uses of his technique, and get information from that?"
Cassandra_Lionheart blushes "We don't need Pak's…pants..off."
Moogle: "You…you're a convertor with legs, arms, and some sort of intelligence, aren't you?"
Moogle: "But it looks like you can only handle a limited range of materials. You're not…pure."
ORN: "Crystaline Assimilation is simply a means to This Unit's ends."
Cassandra_Lionheart blinks and looks away for a bit
ORN: "The Arms and Legs are a variable factor as required, and the intelligence is far beyond that which most techschools have ever proven capable of, let alone their creations"
Moogle: "But you can mostly create just crystal, and raw energy."
Moogle: "You can't even make a carrot, can you?"
Pak: "I can create all sorts of things. >_>"
Pak: "But I can't really control it…"
Riia blinks at that, and blinks widely
ORN: "A refined Lattice is ideal for structural issues. Raw energy involves far less loss than multiple conversions would, and can easily be targetted and directed as required."
Riia holds up sign: "Ask if carrots are easy!"
ORN: "Also, while not yet capable of such scale regularly…"
ORN breaks open the launcher arm and fires a shell into the wall
[OOC] Hector: food's ready. brb.
Moogle: "Yes, yes, but lattices aren't the be all and end all of everything."
ORN: "Minor parts of self meant for detonation are easily created."
Felicia looks around, seeing if that living study lab is nearby.
It does not appear to be within sight - a guide would likely be needed.
ORN: "This Unit is not a vending machine. Why bother with ineffective organics?"
Pak: ">_>"
Riia looks at ORN, but sighs.
Moogle: "For the benefit of the organics around you."
Riia taps Cassie on the shoulder.
ORN: "Partial assimilation can be effected with ease given a few moments of concentration."
[OOC] Riia: Sign still says "ask if carrots are easy, btw"
Cassandra Lionheart: "Yeah Riia?"
Moogle: "Why, we designed carrots to be the ideal nutrient for the organic assistant units our 'friends' were creating."
Riia points at the sign
ORN: "Riia wishes to know if carrots are easy."
Riia blinks
Riia hmms
Cassandra_Lionheart opens her mouth…but ORN asks, and signs "He beat me to it.
Moogle: "Easy? They're one of the basic test patterns we use for all convertors."
Riia tilts her head and points at herself
ORN: "In any case, partial assimilation can be effected with ease given a few moments of concentration. This Unit has assimilated and improved the members of This Group several times already."
Moogle: "They're not the simplest, but they're a well-known design."
Pak: "…"
ORN fires another shot into the wall
ORN looks at Riia
Pak: "How do you make a carrot?"
Pak raises hand.
Pak: "I wanna try."
ORN: "Why did you never mention you wished to consume ammunition? This Unit would gladly have handed pre-arming parts of self"
ORN drops one of his shells into her hand
Pak uses 200 of his own gil this time.
[OOC] Riia: His hand
Pak rolled 1d10 and got 1 for a total of 1
[OOC] Pak: noooo
[OOC] ORN: riia's a he?
[OOC] WC GM: Her hand - Riia's.
[OOC] Pak: GF.
Pak rolled 1d10 and got 4 for a total of 4
Pak rolled 1d100 and got 27 for a total of 27
Pak rolled 1d100 and got 20 for a total of 20
Riia blinks at ORN and looks at the shell, confused
Pak looks up.
ORN nods
Pak hears a high-pitched whistling noise and meeps!
ORN: "Ah. Is it because of the color?"
Pak: "Everyone move!"
ORN: "…"
Eric Lionheart: "Hmm?"
Riia sighs and shelters…
ORN covers whoever he can
Cassandra_Lionheart moves away
Felicia: "…"
Felicia backs away.
Pak suddenly runs away as a carrot crashes through the ceiling, imbedding itself in the floor!
Eric Lionheart: "…"
Cassandra Lionheart: "Um…whoa?"
[OOC] Pak: Aerial Bombardment result.
Pak: "D-don't touch it! It'll explode!"
Riia blinks, and looks at the carrot, though she's still covering behind ORN.
ORN: "… … is that color truly preferable?"
Pak: "I was trying to summon carrots for everyone… ;_;"
Moogle: "…"
Pak: "B-but…"
Pak: "It turned into a bomb…"
Eric_Lionheart puts up Protect and Shell on everyone.
Hector takes a few steps back and furtively sideways next to Sakha.
Sakha looks at him.
ORN walks over and tries to assimilate it, making sure he's in between the party and the shell
Cassandra Lionheart: "Pak…Nice…try??"
Hector smiles!
It explodes on contact.
[OOC] WC GM: Damage to ORN - roll it, Pak.
[OOC] Riia: Aww, and I had a plan
[OOC] WC GM: 'Course, Eric's Protect & Shell are up.
[OOC] ORN: already had anyways
ORN rolled 1d100 and got 39 ( Total: 39 )
[OOC] Riia: You know, Saiai, Pak would get better results if he IM'd gambling instead of using attacks all the time.
Pak rolled 5d8+441 and got 7, 7, 2, 7, 8 for a total of 472
[OOC] ORN: no wait, no need to bother, not in combat : unless he summons a few more ^^;;;
[OOC] Pak: Fire MARM damage
[OOC] ORN: leaves with a bit over half health
Moogle: "That…was not a standard carrot."
ORN: "… …"
[OOC] Hector: At least you got +limit.
Moogle: "I think you had the nitrogen content a bit too high."
Hector: "That had to hurt."
ORN: "All carrots are this way."
Riia shakes head
ORN: "All carrots have proven effective siege weaponry from the very beginning"
Riia holds up a sign: "Not usually contact det"
Moogle: "But you clearly have the basic carbon chains down."
Eric_Lionheart casts Curaga on ORN.
Hector has to wonder if Sakha would do the same for him.
Moogle: "Possibly a little short, though."
Pak: "A-ahh…"
Cassandra Lionheart: "Now to not make them explode…I don't know if I can actually help with that. I have taugh Pak thinks before.."
Pak blushes.
Pak: "S-so…"
Pak: "…Uh, what does this mean, again?"
Pak: ">_>"
Sakha: "Hm?"
ORN: "Actually, solidifying the outermost layers would improve the shrapnel, allowing similar tearing with lower mass requirements."
Hector: "There's some actual techniguqe involved in making a non-exploding carrot, huh. Kinda figures."
ORN turns to Hector
ORN: "… Question…"
The moogle nods approvingly at Hector. "I see you grasp the basics already."
Hector: "The way we do it back home ain't gonna fly here…'cause we're already flyin' and I don't see one single bit a'soil here."
Pak: "I mean, if I can really make carrots, that means I qualify as a converter, right?"
ORN: "What is with This Group's incessant claims that carrots are inert?"
Pak: "Maybe not a totally useful one, but…"
Cassandra Lionheart: "Well, they explode. You just have to work on it Pak."
Hector: "Beucase carrots aren't normally explosives, though that's one of their uses."
Pak: 'R-right."
Hector: "They're not that big, and we eat 'em for food."
Riia nods glumly…
[OOC] ORN: understood as "When I wake up I like to eat bombs". If ORN understood the word hardcore, he'd have a comment there.
Pak looks down at the moogle lady.
Riia sighs at ORN's comment but doesn't know how to explain it.
Pak: ":x"
Hector: "But the carrots they grow in Refuge aren't explodin' ones to begin with."
Felicia: "Indeed."
Hector: "I like choppin' em up and boilin' em and then mixin' 'em with bacon 'n spinach."
Cassandra Lionheart: "Well, we will be all right once he learns how to make them not explode."
Pak: "S-sorry.."
Hector scratches Pak behind his ears. "Makin' mistakes is all part a'learning, y'know."
ORN: "In any case, This Unit's assimilation, while not yet aggressive enough for This Group's final purpose, has proven effective in mending organics. Pak appears capable of handling the rest. What was your original point?"
ORN looks back at the moogle as he says this
Cassandra Lionheart: "Yeah. Mistakes make you better in your craft."
Pak: "Anyway, do I still qualify for study?"
Cassandra Lionheart: "Pak reminds me of when I was studying White Magic."
Pak: "And can this study be undertaken without me being dissected? n.n;"
Eric Lionheart: "Hmm."
Moogle: "Without…dissection? But…but…"
Riia holds up a sign: "Dealbreaker"
Pak T.T
ORN glares
ORN: "Pak will accept dissection if This Unit is first allowed to assimilate and dissect this region's techschools first."
The moogle siiighs. "Fine, I suppose we can put up some sensors and observe. But it won't be as good quality data."
ORN: "Any remaining techschools can then attempt to dissect Pak."
ORN sparkles
Pak: ";_;"
Eric Lionheart: "…"
Pak nods. "O-okay."
Riia lowers her sign.
Cassandra Lionheart: "ORN…Pak is not going to be disected!"
Pak: "Sensors and such are fine!"
Eric Lionheart: "You aren't doing any disecting either, ORN."
The moogle walks off into a passage. "Come on, this way!"
ORN lowers himself and whispers "That's the idea"
Pak follows after the Moogle~
Cassandra_Lionheart follows the moogle
[OOC] Riia: I just realized something. Riia needs an armored elbow pad…so that she can slam ORN in the ribs.
Hector goes along.
[OOC] ORN: should've asked if I can roll trade…
ORN follows closely, picking up the mimicked assimilator sections while he's at it
As the group walks down a corridor, the moogle stops near a window and taps a control panel on the wall opposite.
Pak :o?
A few normal carrots come out of a slot below the panel.
Pak: "…"
Cassandra_Lionheart picks up a carrot and looks at it.
Pak pouts ./‘`/``/.
The moogle holds one up. "This…is a carrot."
Moogle: "Study it. Learn it. Know it."
Hector: "Yes, I know. I’ve eaten many of them."
Cassandra Lionheart: "Mind if I try the carrot out?"
Pak takes it.
Moogle: "Go ahead. They are for you."
Cassandra Lionheart: "Thank you." *takes the carrot, and bites into it*
ORN: "… … . ."
Moogle: "…I MEANT, to study…" She siiighs.
ORN pokes one
It fails to detonate.
Pak looks over his carrot.
Cassandra Lionheart: "Oh..Darn..Sorry. I was hungry."
Pak …licks it.
ORN shapes a projectile like it, then tries to assimilate the carrot like he does the party to heal them
[OOC] Hector: SUGGESTIVE D:
[OOC] Hector: Pak, I mean.
ORN: "It did mention carbon…"
Pak: "Hm!"
Pak nomnomnom
Hector tilts his head to the side at Pak's carrot-licking, then immediately thinks of a few naughty things involving Sakha, Felicia, and Riia.
It is…difficult to assimilate this carrot. It has a carbon lattice, but it is a typical organic product.
ORN just discards all the non-mineral parts, takes his time, learns what he can about the process to refine it
ORN winds up discarding almost all of the carrot.
Those not examining the carrot see motion outside the window.
Riia looks
ORN: "Most of this is useless."
Riia shakes her head absently…
The glacier-cloud the group rode in on is moving.
Pak is slurping his carrot in a not-quite-correct manner of eating it.
[OOC] Riia: Is our own cloud still there?
ORN lines it as graphite along the joints and looks around
[OOC] Riia: …and Trombe?
Several black and white dots cover it, while moogles at the dock it was attached to jump up and down angrily.
Riia blinks!
Pak: "Mmph?"
Pak looks over.
Riia holds up sign: "Stars stealing cloud!"
Cassandra Lionheart: "What is up doc?" *chomps on the carrot, watching the comotion.*
Trombe is with the moogles. The smaller glacier-cloud the group made is still on the being-stolen one.
Riia replaces: "Where Trombe?"
Hector: "…this is great. Let's go get our cloud back."
Cassandra Lionheart: "….Okay."
Riia will go with the group…
A purple twinkle appears in the distance.
ORN: "This Group should have installed the drive onto the Trombe Unit as Riia suggested"
Pak: "…?"
Eric Lionheart: "…"
Pak mmph!
Pak points at the purple thing.
Riia gazes at the twinkle
ORN: "…"
ORN levels the launcher arm at it and kneels
Pak just BITES through the carrot, chewing it noisily.
The twinkle resolves into a comet, that zips towards the stolen cloud - and right through it.
Pak: "…A… a what?"
Cassandra Lionheart: "…"
The dots trying to steal the cloud explode in its wake.
Riia blinks!
Eric Lionheart: "…That does not bode well."
The comet passes out of the group's field of view.
Riia shakes her head…
Riia holds up a sign: "Aer?"
Pak: "That was… interesting…"
Riia nods
Cassandra Lionheart: "If it is…Just great…Honestly."
ORN: "This Unit has not seen Aer before. Is Aer purple?"
Pak noms on the rest of his carrot.
Riia holds up sign: "Was Moogle counter, may have been by Aer."
The moogle looks out the window. "…oh. HER." She sneers.
Riia sighs and nods.
Riia holds up a sign: "Was Aer.ie."
ORN: "… Aer… ie?"
ORN looks at riia
Hector: "…so that's why we haven't been able to talk to her."
The moogle nods. "Yes, HER."
Felicia: "Mmm."
Moogle: "We do not talk about her."
Cassandra Lionheart: "So, they finally drove her off the deep end."
ORN: "Of course. The only one with its pompom installed correctly would be shunned by techschools. What was that weapon?"
Pak: ">_>"
Moogle: "That was her."
Riia relaxes.
Pak: "She's fast~"
Riia nods
Cassandra Lionheart: "…"
Pak: "Ahh, but she saved Trombe, so it's all fine~"
Pak n.n
Moogle: "She's Aer's avatar. Of course she has Aer's speed."
Riia frowns and holds up a sign: "Ask why spirits need avatar?"
Hector: "Where'd Trombe go? He's kind of important to us."
ORN: "Good question"
Riia points at the dock.
ORN: "Why exactly would the elemental spirits require seperate physical avatars in addition to direct elemental configurations?"
The glacier-cloud breaks up and falls as the moogles and Trombe, at the dock, watch the explosions die down.
Cassandra Lionheart: "Why do the spirits need ava…damn!"
Pak: "oxo"
Pak: "Huh."
Riia sighs
Moogle: "Require? They don't require avatars. We required them to have avatars."
ORN: "Explain."
Riia changes her sign: "I see why don't like-" but never finishes
Cassandra Lionheart: "Okay, Why?"
Riia stares intently at the Moogle.
Pak: "Yeah. >_>"
Pak: "Didn't I explain this before?"
Hector: "I assume this is for the Volcannon."
Hector: "Well, WAS."
ORN stares at Riia
ORN: "?"
Pak: "…"
Moogle: "It was, yes. After the elemental spirits were awakened, to coordinate the efforts of the Volcannon, they were encouraged - strongly - to take physical form and identify with those they were awakened to serve."
Pak waves his hand. "You can tell us all about it on the way to the living-subject study-area."
The moogle nods, and walks on down the path.
Riia follows.
Hector: "All they did was serve us a big heaping plate of suck."
Pak had already figured that out from talking with Juan~
ORN nod at Hector
Moogle: "In each case, they bonded with a volunteer - for varying amounts of 'volunteer' - host."
Riia finishes with the sign: "I see why they don't like Aerie."
Cassandra Lionheart: "I wonder…You don't think they are angry over it, do you?"
ORN looks at Riia
Moogle: "Well…MOST of them, anyway."
Riia sighs: "Killed stars, but blew up cloud anyway."
Moogle: "At least, we assume that's what happened from the limited contact we had with the other races."
ORN: "That may indeed be the problem. Sealing powerful units, forcing them to serve rather than teaching them appropriate lessons as the Creators did, and then being shunned by large sections of their own race due to their differences"
Pak: "Well…"
Pak: "…Most of the other ones eventually went bonkers."
Moogle: "Oh, her? No, Ae-SHE was on the outs even before becoming Aer's host."
Hector: "Hm."
Cassandra Lionheart: "Why?"
Hector: "Why was that?"
Pak: "But Aerie is actually trying to keep things from going bad…"
Moogle: "For blaming herself. For losing the faith."
Pak: "Possibly because she has the most to lose from planet-impact…"
Moogle: "She lost her parents in the initial attacks."
Cassandra Lionheart: "Losing faith in what…Oh."
Moogle: "She was already starting to lose it, if you know what I mean."
Riia holds up a sign: "Faith in what?"
Cassandra_Lionheart nods
Moogle: "She, and her parents, were assigned to guard the targetting system for the Volcannon."
Moogle: "We were being attacked then, much as we are now."
ORN: "This Group has already contacted her regarding such matters."
Moogle: "…"
Hector: "Huh, makes sense. Can't say I blame her."
The moogle stops, and looks at ORN. "…she still talks?"
ORN point at Hector
ORN: "Radio?"
Hector: "No signal."
Felicia: "She spoke with us through it on previous occaisons."
ORN: "There has been no signal for several days now."
Cassandra Lionheart: "Maybe we should try now…she is close to us."
Hector: "So there's no way we can actually talk to, unless this thing magically starts workin' again."
Pak is still trying to head along towards the living study area~
Pak steps into said area ahead of the rest of the group.
Eric Lionheart: "Hmm."
There are beds and jars and apparati and control panels and things Pak can not identify.
Hector flips it dramatically back into his pocket.
Pak oooh~
But it does, indeed, look like a place to study living things.
Pak looks around curiously
Cassandra Lionheart: "Eric, maybe you can try to make it work?"
Pak: "What sort of things have you found here? <3"
The moogle leads the rest of the group inside shortly thereafter.
Riia looks around suspiciously.
Eric Lionheart: "I'm a white mage, not a engineer. I don't know anything about radios."
Ahiru looks thoughtful, a feat for her. "So spirits possess existing people? So nine people's lives get taken over… What if there was only one spirit, then things wouldn't be crazy and only one person would give their life."
Cassandra_Lionheart feels a bit uneasy
Hector: "Try anythin' funny, though, and I'm breakin' this place apart like you've never seen before."
ORN: "… … One spirit containing the powers of all the others, Ahiru?"
Moogle: "Nine? We only know of six for sure."
ORN: "And when IT goes berserk?"
Cassandra Lionheart: "I don't think Ahiru would go crazy."
Ahiru: "Well… yeah, but the thing is, if there's one spirit, there's nothing to fight over."
ORN: "Aer, Pyr, Bolt, Min, Plu, Grav, Chilla, Gaia, Milf…"
Riia looks at Ahiru, confused.
Riia holds up a sign: "They weren't fighting each OTHER.'
Pak: "…They did fight eachother a bit."
ORN nods at Riia
Pak: "But yeah."
ORN: "And that would be the problem."
Moogle: "We never found out what happened to Plu and Min. Chilla…err…we don't like to think about what probably happened."
Pak is peering inside one of the jars.
Pak: "What's this~?"
Moogle: "A jar."
ORN: "What occurs when that one spirit decides to rebel or becomes hostile?"
The jar has a murky green liquid inside.
Ahiru: "But they fought to have dominance over everything, right? So why need to fight when you ARE everything?"
ORN: "Then it is not fighting, but a massacre"
Felicia: "…What is inside the jar?"
Hector: "Wait a minute!"
Cassandra Lionheart: "Ahiru is right on that. Think they went crazy because they were seperate?"
Moogle: "Eh? Oh…hmm." The moogle examines the jar.
Hector: "What if Grav wants to do just that? To be the elemental spirit of EVERYTHING."
Riia blinks
Riia: =o
Riia: =O
Pak tailwags.
Eric Lionheart: "It seems beating up the spirits makes them less crazy at least."
Pak: "That's an interesting idea."
Riia holds up a sign: "That makes sense!"
Moogle: "Oh, that's just old soup. I'll flush it."
Pak: "Maybe that's why he wanted us to capture them…"
ORN: "That is possible. Likely, in fact. Hector has a point. By suppressing the others within the amulet, once only Grav's influence remains… Grav is in charge."
Pak …oh.
Cassandra Lionheart: "Then…Well…Right."
Riia replaces that with "When did Chilla die?"
The moogle taps on a control panel. The green liquid drains away.
ORN: "In any case, do you honestly wish for a hostile to be in charge of existance on this world?"
Riia shakes her head at ORN, and follows up her sign: "Grav creates amulet to capture spirits…"
Cassandra Lionheart: "ORN..think about it."
Riia follows that with "Who says he can't wear it?"
Ahiru: "… Grav knows so much…"
ORN look at Riia
Cassandra Lionheart: "Ahiru can say. That is whom."
ORN: "That is also a possibility. However, that would simply make things worse…"
Riia shrugs and follows that with "Or he could have figured out how to become avatar of multiple…"
Hector: "And I gotta wonder if Grav'll fit in the amulet once we kick him down to Mithratown."
Eric Lionheart: "So Grav could have done all this to gain the power of all the spirits?"
Pak looks to see if there are any living things in the living-thing-study-area.
Riia nods
Hector: "Distinct possibility."
Pak: "Of course, he'd have to take it from us."
ORN: "Attraction into a single large mass is within his purpose for existing"
Riia rolls her head to the left and throws up: "Wonder if he's the avatar or the spirit…"
Eric Lionheart: "We can't take that amulet near Grav then."
Ahiru looks at the amulet. How many gem spots were there again?"
Hector: "Exactly, Pak."
ORN: "It does now seem natural for Grav to formulate such goals."
Cassandra Lionheart: "Grav's motives still seem clouded."
ORN: "This only adds additional reasons for the elimination or at the very least study, assimilation and subversion of the Amulet before all spirits are sealed within."
Pak: "We ARE in a good place to study."
Cassandra Lionheart: "Very true."
Eric Lionheart: "Destroying it now could be a bad idea, however."
Pak: "If the information isn't here, it's probably in the library!"
Eric Lionheart: "We don't know what will happen if it breaks."
There are nine spots in Ahiru's brooch. Five of them are full of glowing energy; four are empty.
ORN: "The only advantageous factor is the possibility that Grav is therefore a third party and not a direct ally of the invasion force. They could therefore potentially be used against him, preferably ensuring mutual destruction due to their hostility to life on this world."
Cassandra Lionheart: "Yeah, becuase the stooges said that they got to Grav also."
Riia frowns
Pak continues looking around
Riia holds up sign: "Or did he get to them?"
Cassandra Lionheart: "Good question, Riia. He was helping us out earlier in our adventure."
Cassandra Lionheart: "Even talked to us."
Riia nods: "We were his pawns, then."
[OOC] Riia: Well, "you," but…
ORN: "He was directing This Group to begin action upon this endeavor, however."
Hector: "Pawns no longer, blinded no more."
Riia holds up a sign: "But then trio said he didn't need us any more."
Pak: "We haven't talked to him in a while…"
Riia holds up another: "And he attacked us after we beat Mer."
Cassandra Lionheart: "We did enough damage though."
Eric Lionheart: "That means he might not need the amulet."
Riia finishes with: "I think so."
ORN: "Which is a possibility. Consider what This Group has discovered, in part from the trio."
ORN: "The suppressed and sealed spirits lose much influence on their respective elements. Remaining balance can therefore be assumed to at least partially be picked up by the remainder"
Pak looks in more jars and beds and stuff.
Cassandra Lionheart: "I'm still confused about it all."'
Ahiru: "Is Grav Crazy too…?
Eric Lionheart: "Considering Grav wants to crash into a planet, I'd say so."
Hector: "So crazy he's sane, or so sane that he's crazy. Pick one."
Cassandra Lionheart: "Yeah..Crazy, like a fox.."
Sakha: "Not to mention those three that have run amok with every spirit work for him now. AGAINST us."
Sakha: "You've been dumped, ducky."
Cassandra Lionheart: "Yeah."
Pak: "It's hard to say what's going on…"
Eric Lionheart: "The only one with answers could be Grav. We'll have to remember to ask before beating him."
Pak: "Yes."
[OOC] Hector: Sakha is talking to herself, lols.
Pak looks over to Ahiru.
Eric Lionheart: "Possibly after if he's intact enough."
Pak: "…Actually, we should do some tests with her amulet later…"
Pak: "See if other people can actually use it."
Cassandra Lionheart: "Well, like I said, he used to talk to us…I wonder if there is still a possibility there is some spark of himself left TO talk too?"
Ahiru: "Fakir left to fix the spirits… Grav gives me the POWER to fix the spirits and follow him…"
Ahiru: "But Grav needs fixing too?"
Cassandra_Lionheart thinks and shivers for a bit
ORN: "Ducks can transform. Ahiru is proof. How would any of that be Grav's doing?"
Ahiru hands the brooch to Pak, returning to a Duck.
Cassandra Lionheart: "what if Fakir is an avatar himself?"
ORN: "One cannot use gravity quite that effectively, though it is quite useful at 'transforming' things into pulp"
Hector wrinkles his forehead. "I'd say the answers're beyond my mental abilities."
Pak tries putting the brooch on.
The brooch does nothing to Pak.
Pak: "Hm."
Pak hands it back to Ahiru.
Pak: "Anyway, study time~!"
Ahiru quacks and closes her eyes and doesn't take it back
Pak: "Miss Moogle, what should I do~?"
Pak: "…?"
Pak hands it to Felicia instead.
ORN picks it up then
Ahiru quacks some more.
ORN gives it a taste actually. See what its made of, and just what makes it tick, perhaps?
Riia pets the ducky?
Cassandra_Lionheart watches and sighs "What is up Ahiru?"
The moogle looks at Ahiru. "What…is that?"
Pak: "It's a duck."
Ahiru looks at Moogle. She quacks.
Eric Lionheart: "Might I see the amulet? Maybe my magic can determine something."
The brooch seems to be made mostly of gold, iron, and spirits.
ORN: "Gold, iron, spirits contained within…"
Eric_Lionheart holds out a hand for the amulet.
ORN tries digging in deeper a bit and looks at Eric
ORN: "Please scan in this configuration first."
The moogle's hands fly over the control panel. Various implements descend on ice arms, revolving around Ahiru.
ORN looks towards the moogle
Pak: "NO DISSECTION."
Ahiru quacks in alarm.
The amulet resists ORN's intrusion.
Cassandra_Lionheart looks at the amulet and blinks
ORN: "Any attempts to roast or dissect the duck will be met with deadly force"
ORN: "Ah?"
Felicia blinks.
ORN: "… resisting?"
Riia frowns at the implements…
Pak: "…So, you can't eat it."
Moogle: "Oh, don't worry, I won't touch her. I just want to scan in deeetail~."
Pak: "…"
ORN tries a little more: exactly how's it resisting: what's resisting? how's it trying…
Pak: "Hey, you were supposed to be scanning me! ;_;"
The implements revolve in a tighter circle around Ahiru, like a cage now.
Riia checks to make sure the implements are not, in fact, invasive.
Cassandra Lionheart: "ORN careful."
ORN: "This construct resists… Scan more, Eric."
Eric_Lionheart scans the amulet.
[OOC] WC GM: MAG check, ORN.
ORN: "This could prove useful"
ORN rolled 1d100 and got 9 ( Total: 9 )
Pak pouts, but waits. "fine, I'll wait for her…"
[OOC] ORN: oh wow bloody pass!
Eric Lionheart: "Lets see if it can resist my power."
Ahiru shrinks away from them.
ORN reflexively drops the brooch just as it starts to assimilate him!
Pak: "…"
Eric Lionheart: "…"
Riia blinks at ORN- ?
Hector: "Don't think that's gonna work."
Cassandra Lionheart: "ORN?"
Pak: "There's lots of things trying to eat you today, huh ORN?"
The implements surround Ahiru, leaving no place to shrink to.
[OOC] Ahiru: That wold be bad, a really BIG ORN brooch.
[OOC] Cassandra Lionheart: LOL
Ahiru is caught.
Eric_Lionheart picks up the amulet and continues to scan.
Cassandra_Lionheart attempts to catch the brooch before it falls to the ground
The brooch processes its bit of crystal, before forming a small crown decoration around itself.
Cassandra's and Eric's hands overlap as they catch the jewelry.
ORN: "…"
Eric Lionheart: "…"
Pak: "o_o;"
[OOC] Eric Lionheart: Still waiting on Scan results if any.
Pak looks in a random direction.
Cassandra_Lionheart looks at Eric and blinks "Did not want it to break."
Pak: "It's not a romantic moment! They're related!"
ORN: "One of the converters"
Eric Lionheart: "Likewise. For all we know it could explo-…"
Hector scratches the back of his head. "Any idea what's goin' on, Sakha? I'm confused."
ORN stares at Pak
ORN: "…"
ORN stares at cassie
Pak waves his hand as if talking to an unknown audience.
ORN stares at Sakha
ORN stares at Eric
Cassandra Lionheart: "What ORN?"
Sakha: "I'll let Eric have his turn first."
ORN stares back at Cassie and Pak
The brooch seems to spit out its crystal, forming it into one ring on Cassandra's ring finger and one on Eric's.
Hector: "Hm."
ORN: "… relations are an issue?"
Pak: "…"
Felicia: "…"
Pak: "They are for humans!"
Hector: "Whaddya know."
Cassandra Lionheart: "Huh???"
Eric Lionheart: "…The amulet is bizzare."
ORN: "one would not have thought, given…"
ORN stares at pak and cassie and sakha some more
Sakha: "Now you, moogle what do you get from scanning that Duck?"
Pak looks back at ORN.
Eric Lionheart: "Extremely, extremely bizzare."
Pak: "THEY ARE FOR HUMANS."
Cassandra Lionheart: "Yeah…Okay..Now what?"
Pak: "Other races have different standards."
Eric Lionheart: "Anyways, I'll continue my Scanning of it."
Eric's Scan reveals…an amulet. A totally unmagical brooch. Completely in contrast to the evidence in front of him.
ORN: "The amulet attempted assimilation"
Eric Lionheart: "…This thing is immune to my magic."
[OOC] Pak: Read: Mithra are somewhat incestuous by nature due to their weird-ass male to female ration.
Cassandra_Lionheart looks at the ring on her finger
Eric Lionheart: "If I didn't see what it just did, I'd think it was a normal brooch."
ORN: "Though the taste is different, the attempt was similar to one of the vendor converters back there."
ORN glares at the moogle
More results come from Eric's continued scans…
Riia shrugs
ORN: "This Unit requires the teaching of that level of culinary expertise to proceed."
Riia holds up a sign: "So amulet is moontech. So?"
Level 8 Boss Humanoid. 0/576 HP, 0/0 MP. A: Lightning, I: Fatal.
Pak: "…"
Pak: "That's, uh."
Pak: "That's Bolt."
Cassandra Lionheart: "Yeah."
[OOC] Ahiru: So WC what the Moogle get from Ahiru?
Level 16 Boss Humanoid. 0/2688 HP, 0/224 MP. A: Bio, I: Fatal.
[OOC] WC GM: Typing out Eric's Scan first.
[OOC] Pak: and then finally we can get to Pak-scan~!
Level 24 Boss Humanoid. 0/9216 HP, 0/0 MP. A: Earth, E: Earth, I: Lightning, Fire, W: Water, Wind, I: Toxin, Seal, Fatal.
Eric Lionheart: "Each one seems progressively stronger then the last."
Level 32 Boss Humanoid. 0/6144 HP, 0/512 MP. A: Fire, E: Fire, I: Ice, W: Water, I: Mystify, Seal, Weaken, Fatal.
ORN: "These are the spirits are they not?"
Eric Lionheart: "This could imply as we beat spirits, the remaining grow in strength."
ORN nods
Pak …?
ORN: "Suppression of one spirit redistributes planetary influence amongst the remainder"
Level 40 Boss Humanoid. A: Water, E: Water, W: Lightning, I: Mystify, Toxin, Transform, Weaken, Fatal.
Eric Lionheart: "It might be effective to try to beat multiple ones at the same time."
Cassandra Lionheart: "Meaning…If we leave Grav for last…"
ORN: "As was stated multiple times by this oft-ignored unit."
[OOC] Hector: What's with Gaia having more HP than…Pyr?
ORN nods at Cassie
Cassandra_Lionheart shakes her head
Hector: "Not like we have a choice. We have to GET to Grav."
ORN: "This Unit recommends against doing so. Beating on other spirits should be kept for post-invasion force and Grav elimination."
ORN looks at Hector
Eric Lionheart: "ORN, for once I agree."
Hector: "Might as well fix everythin' we can on the way there."
Eric Lionheart: "Though, this gives me some thoughts."
ORN: "a matter of breaking Grav's expected sequence, if you will"
[OOC] WC GM: Gaia was a rock. Pyrtyr was a martial artist, concentrating more on being hard to hit.
Cassandra Lionheart: "Of What Eric?"
Eric Lionheart: "What would happen if I cast health restoring magic on the amulet?"
[OOC] Hector: Well, good point.
[OOC] WC GM: Tanks evade less than monks.
[OOC] Hector: Pyrtyr was easier, too. XD
Eric Lionheart: "Would the spirits come back? What would happen to the amulet? Is it feasable at this time if the first thought works?"
[OOC] ORN: yeah that's because someone wasn't doing any damage to someone ^^;;;;;;
The implements finally retract.
Cassandra Lionheart: "I don't know. I think maybe the spirits would possibly stir a bit."
ORN: "… perhaps a minimal attempt is in order, Eric"
Moogle: "So…that is a duck."
ORN: "They were defeated before. Can you target a single one at a time?"
Pak: "…Y-yes.'
Eric Lionheart: "Lets start with Bolt. If something goes wrong…we should be over to overcome him."
able -over
ORN: "Additional scanning of the remaining sealed ones may give further information"
Pak looks over at Ahiru. "Are you okay? n.n;"
ORN nods
Sakha: "It's a special duck so I'm curious what you found."
ORN: "Affirmative."
Ahiru quacks.
ORN stands in front of eric, weapon arm ready
Cassandra_Lionheart sighs, and draws her sword
Moogle: "…I've never seen a duck in my life before! I don't know what's 'special'."
ORN: "This could be MOST amusing ^^.
"
ORN sparkles
Sakha: "Well, ducks normally have no magical abilities. They're water birds."
Moogle: "Anyway, now for your companion. The sensors are ready - just try summoning something."
Eric_Lionheart casts Raise on Bolt's part of the amulet.
Moogle: "Wait…water birds?"
Moogle: "…so, just an animal, then?"
Pak: "Yeah."
Moogle: "There isn't supposed to be a soul?"
ORN: "All feet have souls."
Cassandra Lionheart: "ORN…"
Pak: "…Animals don't have souls?"
Hector facepalms. "Thank you, thank you. We'll be here all night."
[OOC] ORN: stupid techschools don't even know that?
Sakha: "I suppose… if animals don't have souls, that would be the case."
ORN: "Why would they not?"
Moogle: "Well…you seem to know about these things…here." The moogle taps away.
Pak gets out some Gil. "Let's see…"
Cassandra_Lionheart is watching both Eric and her new ring..
Sakha goes to a panel an cross-references a regular bird and Ahiru.
The moogle points to another control panel. "I've called the data up over there. See what you can make of it."
[OOC] Eric Lionheart: Hmm.
Nothing happens when Eric's spell goes off - as if he was targeting inanimate jewelry.
Eric Lionheart: "Hmm."
Pak starts off with Element Reels!
ORN: "The device likely interferes with line of sight"
Pak rolled 1d10 and got 5 for a total of 5
Pak rolled 1d100 and got 92 for a total of 92
Eric_Lionheart does rescan Bolt's part, though.
Pak rolled 1d100 and got 14 for a total of 14
Eric gets the same information.
Eric Lionheart: "No change at all."
Cassandra Lionheart: "Oh well, Eric. We tried. But scan the rings."
Pak produces some water on his knife.
ORN: "… Would you be capable of scanning for a comparison between This Unit's assimilation capabilities and the device's?"
Pak then moves to Moogle Reels!
Eric Lionheart: "I could try. Seems I'm getting alot of use out of my magic today."
Pak rolled 1d10 and got 2 for a total of 2
Pak rolled 2d100 and got 90, 98 for a total of 188
ORN nods
Eric_Lionheart scans the rings.
ORN: "Practice is good."
Cassandra Lionheart: "Please do Eric."
Pak makes moogles appear and dance around, healing the party for a minor amount.
ORN stands to let Eric scan him too
Pak then does Status Reels!
Pak rolled 1d10 and got 9 for a total of 9
Pak rolled 2d100 and got 53, 58 for a total of 111
[OOC] ORN: its less invasive than riia
Pak creates a Sleep effect!
Sakha hmms and brings up data for a moogle and a human to cross reference.
Pak finally, finishes off with Chocobo Reels!
Pak rolled 1d10 and got 10 for a total of 10
Pak rolled 2d100 and got 43, 82 for a total of 125
[OOC] Pak: …Oh god i have to try for it. GF on 82_)
Pak rolled 1d100 and got 73 for a total of 73
Sakha blinks.
[OOC] Pak: Fail~
Pak makes carrots pile up! "Ohh!"
Sakha continues searching through the database.
Pak picks one up and eats it, being healed for a decent amount.
Moogle: "Now THAT'S a quality carrot!"
Pak: "n.n"
Pak: "I have some more abilities that don't rely on money."
Pak rolls some dice.
Pak rolled 2d6 and got 6, 1 for a total of 7
Pak rolls some other dice.
Pak rolled 2d6 and got 1, 2 for a total of 3
Pak gets Protect (4).
[OOC] Pak: The first was Dice, the second was Phantom Dice.
The rings Eric scans are…just rings. Definitely former parts of ORN, but now entirely nonmagical. They are suggestive of wedding rings - but surely that is just coincidence, is it not?
[OOC] WC GM: Sorry for the late response - running three threads here. ;)
Sakha takes notes in her research.
Eric_Lionheart blinks and thinks that amulet is totally odd, then scans ORN to see if he can find anything related to ORN's request.
Cassandra_Lionheart looks at Eric, and is blushing a deep red.
Hector sits on the floor and wonders if the Moogles have picked apart Trombe yet. if they have, HEADS WILL ROLL.
Riia eyes the hallway with the converter in it and wonders if it could produce something akin to a reaction chamber…
Level 44 Normal Humanoid. 147/489 HP, 182/191 MP. E: Lightning, I: Water, W: Holy, R: Seal.
Pak: "Any other data you need from me? :x"
Sakha curses. "You're database is incomplete, Ms Moogle. You don't have information on your Avatar's avatar status."
The moogle grins. "Well…if you're up for it…"
Pak: "…"
Pak e-eeps.
The moogle's finger stops above the control panel as she looks at Sakha. "Of course we don't."
Pak: "W-wait, what are you gonna use…?"
Sakha: "Why not? It's a key point to figuring out Ahiru who seems to have changed with contact with a Spirit
ORN: "??? Ahiru changed?"
[OOC] Riia: Pak gonna get prooobed
Moogle: "What, you think she'd be in any place we COULD scan her even if we wanted to?"
[OOC] Pak: …eh, probed is better than dissected »
Cassandra Lionheart: "Hey Eric? I think this is one way to get back into the family for now."
[OOC] ORN: how about we DON'T travel halfway across the galaxy, we DON'T abduct shotas, and we DON'T give them anal probes!
Eric_Lionheart blinks in slight confusion.
[OOC] Riia: ….is Cassie proposing to Eric?
[OOC] ORN: yes. yes she is.
[OOC] ORN: that's certainly one way to keep things in the family. silly white mages.
Pak swallows. "As long as it's not dissection…"
Moogle: "Huh? Oh, right." The moogle's finger lands on the panel.
Pak meep.
Implements descend from above, quickly surrounding Pak, obscuring him from view.
[OOC] Hector: Woot. Ganked a GINN.
Cassandra_Lionheart is still blushing "Well…I um, well…"
One by one, Pak's clothes fly out from the obscured space.
Pak yelps~!
[OOC] Riia: Hahahaha
Hector looks up at what's going on. "This seems to be a common occurance with Pak, fer some reason."
Pak: "x_x; A-auuu…"
Eric Lionheart: "…"
Riia rushes over to gather up the clothes and block views.
Hector sighs. "Not worth botherin' with. 'sides, I don't feel like bein' naked right now."
Pak: "C-can someone collect my-t-thanks, Riia~"
Pak winds up probed and prodded and sampled intimately.
[OOC] Riia: Pending the reveal, that is.
Pak KIIII~
Eric Lionheart: "That doesn't even look remotely fun."
Pak: "A-aAAAh~! Nnn~! N-not so deep~!"
Eric Lionheart: "…"
Riia shrugs
ORN: "… ."
[OOC] Riia: Very intimately.
ORN: "Par for course."
Sakha walks over to pick up the Brooch and inspect it herself… not with a simple scan but with a general sense of magical nature.
The moogle almost leers at the display on her panel, not looking at Pak himself.
[OOC] Pak: Well
[OOC] Pak: That takes care of moogle sex, I guess
[OOC] ORN: she's got a better view there huh ^^;;;;;;
Cassandra Lionheart: "Eric…" *goes to his ear and whipsers* "I do have feelings for you…But I could not…act on them."
[OOC] Pak: This is as close as I'll get to it
[OOC] Pak: I think that means I still have… elves, dwarves…
[OOC] Pak: *checks his checklist*
[OOC] Riia: Whoooooah
[OOC] WC GM: Pak's keeping a little black book now? >_>
[OOC] Eric Lionheart: Yetis. Don't forget the yetis.
[OOC] Pak: Not really
[OOC] ORN: well for elves, if any of the remaining cadet units happened to have a female personality you could probably try it out
[OOC] Pak: Yetis don't count, they're invaders!
[OOC] ORN: oh. and also the fleshy ones.
[OOC] WC GM: Viera are invaders too, no?
[OOC] ORN: wc's right. you've already crossed the line boy. too late. get yerself some sasquatch
[OOC] Pak: Eh, doesn't matter at the moment >_>
[OOC] Pak: Kyaah nooo. I's not a furry. :x
[OOC] Riia: Yes you are
[OOC] Riia: You're a mithra
[OOC] Riia: Any sexing you do is furry
[OOC] Pak: no, Mithra are fuzzy :x
Sakha easily picks up the presence of the spirits. And something about one human shell - Ahiru's "normal" body, apparently.
[OOC] Pak: They don't really have fur.
[OOC] Eric Lionheart: Catboy. Not a true furry. >.>;
Pak whimpers. "A-auuu…"
Eric_Lionheart is blushing deeply.
[OOC] Hector: A dying god coming into human flesh?
Pak: "H-how much longer is this gonna take? ;.;"
Moogle: "He'll need to rest after I'm done with him. There's a bedchamber next door - actually, you all might want to rest up."
Pak: "…;_;"
ORN: "Convertor assimilation system information is still required."
Moogle: "Oh, it shouldn't be more than half an hour for a complete scan~."
ORN: "Resting can wait until such information is available for integration."
Pak: "H-haaah~"
Moogle: "While you rest, I'll see about getting you transport to the library."
Moogle: "It sounds like you have some business there."
Pak: "O-okay… aAAH~!"
ORN: "Assimilation of the incoming planetoid could prove improbable without it. Does this database contain it?"
ORN: "… hm…"
Cassandra Lionheart: "Oh, thank you Madam." *looks at Eric and smiles* "ORN, your guarding Eric and i tonight."
ORN considers… assimilation > library > database > … eating books?
ORN sparkles
Eric Lionheart: "…"
ORN: "Much more resiliant and portable… yes."
Sakha gives the brooch back to Ahiru.
ORN looks at Cassie
ORN: "Very well."
Cassandra_Lionheart looks at Eric, and blushes deeply "If it is okay, Eric?"
Ahiru takes it and reverts to human form. "So no one else is able to use it and you can't find out why it's special?"
Sakha: "Not really… But you're plenty interesting in and of yourself."
Pak KI! "D-d-d-on't prod at that~!"
Eric Lionheart: "It is…fine."
ORN: "It seemed to take shape around Cassie."
Cassandra Lionheart: "Nope..I could not use it, Ahiru."
ORN: "It attempted to assimilate This Unit… Next time the roles will reverse, however."
Cassandra_Lionheart holds her hand out to Ahiru to show the ring
ORN: "It may react to your transformation system"
Felicia: "I wasnt exactly sure what to do with it…"
Sakha: "I'd actually like to compare a scan of you in each of your forms to that of you as a duck…"
ORN stares at Cassie
ORN: "Sectional selves?"
ORN points at the ring
Cassandra Lionheart: "Well there is nothing special with the rings, ORN."
Hector: "Well, least we're pickin' up a lotta good info here."
Hector: "If nothin' else, we're gonna be wiser."
ORN: "An Overlay would indeed look good on you, as it does on the Trombe Unit."
ORN: "It should prove effective at protecting that finger."
ORN sparkles
[OOC] ORN: I'm armor now!
[OOC] WC GM: But you're not a chastity belt, it seems. >_>
Eric Lionheart: "I still ponder if there is a method we could use someday to revive the spirits, but it seems to be beyond my knowledge at this time."
Cassandra_Lionheart nods to Eric "We will find a way..sweetheart."
Eric Lionheart: "…"
Sakha looks to see if the scanning system was free for more tests.
[OOC] Hector: Full-Armor Orndam?
There are additional scanners available for Sakha to use. They seem easy enough to manipulate - the basics, anyway.
Pak: "A-a-a-a-aaaa~"
Cassandra_Lionheart blushes after she says that.
[OOC] ORN: after the FA ZZ gundam, the FA Cassie Gundam?
Sakha leads Ahiru to get tested and calculatingly tells her to change into each of her forms.
Moogle: "I hope you don't mind, but it's been a while since we've had anyone from down below up here - need to calibrate the sensors too."
Moogle: "And male mithra are EXTREMELY rare to get data on."
[OOC] Hector: Actually.
Pak: "I-i don't mind too much-a-a-ah~!"
[OOC] Hector: Sentinel Gundam would be Orn.
Riia sits down, waiting, and starts tinkering with some of the parts she has while trying to ignore Pak's predicament…
[OOC] Hector: 'cause Orn has Sentinel. XD
Pak: "I-it's just that it's treating me kinda rough, d-don't you think?"
Ahiru follows direction curious about what would be discovered.
Sakha cross-references data, taking more notes.
The soul seems similar in all of Ahiru's forms - it's definitely Ahiru, as human, as Bolt-like, as golem…
Sakha also analyzes the physical composition of the forms.
Physically, the forms seem to be in prime health - well, at least as healthy as Ahiru.
Felicia stands nearby, watching as Sakha gathers data.
ORN glares at the moogle, still waiting for the requested info
Riia blinks
Riia holds up the ice gears she has…
Riia frowns…
Riia glances at the whirling instruments behind her, then over at the moogle operating them…
Cassandra Lionheart: "But anyways..If we need rest, lets see."
Pak s-shiver…
Sakha: "Huh…" She looks at the others wondering who'd actually be interested in her discoveries - besides Ahiru. She didn't want to repeat herself.
Riia sighs, torn as always…
ORN standing there
Eric_Lionheart seems to be pondering what to do next, and did at least try to scan the amulet.
ORN always interested in discoveries of course
Felicia: "Hmm… I wonder…"
Sakha: "Who's up for a bit of a discussion about what we're actually DOING?"
ORN nods
Riia folds up Pak's clothes and leaves them, then hops over to Eric. She taps him on the shoulder and gestures for him to follow.
Eric Lionheart: "This sounds like something intresting."
Eric_Lionheart blinks at Riia. "Hmm?"
Felicia: "Ahiru, when Sakha's done, would you mind letting me see your amulet once more?"
Riia leads him over to the Moogle, her sign reading "Need translator…"
Ahiru is back in her basic form and cocks her head at Sakha.
Eric Lionheart: "That's Cassandra that understands Moogle, I think."
Ahiru looks to Eric, and shrugs, handing it back then and there.
The implements finally let up, but still conceal Pak's modesty.
Ahiru quacks, back to being a duck.
Moogle: "Alright, we're done. Get dressed."
Riia changes sign to "We have machine that makes sound, but…"
ORN looks at Sakha
Eric Lionheart: "Hector has that."
Pak's clothes are JUST out of reach of Pak.
Riia holds up the sign without changing it…
ORN: "Well? What do you wish to discuss?"
Riia shrugs, "Is close enough, but I can't speak."
Cassandra_Lionheart gets Pak's clothes and hands then to him
Hector: "Huh?"
Riia signs: "Miniconverter. Problem is, ice keeps melting, yes?"
Eric Lionheart: "Indeed."
Pak puts them on.
Eric Lionheart: "I wonder if a anti-fire spell would protect from that issue."
Pak collapses.
Riia shrugs-
The implements retract to the ceiling.
Pak crawls towards a bed. ;.;
Pak: "H-hahh…"
Riia holds up her sign: "I remember working with them on the moon."
[OOC] ORN: all you need's to use parts that don't melt. made you a few already remember? ;p
Hector goes over to Pak and helps him stand.
Riia follows that with "But not ice…something similar."
Eric Lionheart: "Some sort of crystal, maybe?"
Hector: "C'mon, let's get you to bed 'fore you pass out."
Riia nods
Riia signs: "Was clear, like ice, but not ice…"
Eric Lionheart: "Glass?"
Pak crawls into bed.
Pak: "…"
Moogle: "…what is that servant unit doing? I can't read her sign."
Pak: "T…tell me if she needs more data."
Pak passes out.
Felicia: "…"
Hector makes sure Pak's tucked in all nice and stuff, then goes back to the others.
Hector: "Well, he's not goin' anywhere 'till he sleeps it off."
Riia sighs and waits for someone to translate.
ORN waits for Sakha to answer, since she's apparently gone quiet
Cassandra_Lionheart looks at Eric and blushes "Shall we get a bed also?"
Sakha: "It's about what I've learned about Ahiru… First off… she's probably the only documented case of being a Love Elemental."
Eric Lionheart: "Maybe in a bit."
ORN: "? ? ?"
Felicia: "…A what."
ORN: "Love?"
Eric Lionheart: "…A…what now?"
Moogle: "A love…?"
Riia blinks and looks at Sakha
ORN looks over at the others
The moogle blinks. "There are other documented cases…but they're rare."
Riia shrugs and nods
ORN: "?"
Pak mumbles in his sleep. "Whaaaat."
[OOC] Riia: Pak's in another room =p
Sakha: "A Love Elemental. You know the stories… how a love can become so deep and pure that it creates an embodiment of itself?"
ORN just stares blankly, seeing as there's two or three terms that require explaining right there
Hector: "…whoa."
Sakha: "That is what Ahiru IS. It's why she's not just a normal duck, moreso than the ability to change form. Her soul is an embodiment of love."
ORN: "What does the love element comprise?"
Riia nods
Cassandra Lionheart: "Love for the world? Love in its purest form?"
Hector: "Huh."
Sakha: "It is comprised of good emotions, a force that is invisible and powerful in it's own right, but in and of itself does not change the environment around it like air, fire, water, earth, bio, ect which all command an existing aspect of the natural world."
Felicia: "…Huh."
Riia blinks
Riia blinks hard
Riia holds up a sign: "So kinda an aspect of Plu?"
ORN: "… … Plu."
ORN: "… … a combination of Plu and Grav."
Riia holds up another sign: "Looks like Plu has been shattered."
Moogle: "…that would be…Plu AND Min, if the stories hold."
Moogle: "You know how we didn't used to have Holy or Shadow at all? No Plu, no Min?"
ORN: "Is min not negative emotions? Also those black stars are quite visible and can be targetted."
Riia blinks at the moogle.
ORN: "Not until they were given active forms when the spirits were given conciousness, correct?"
Moogle: "Nooo…we introduced them to the world."
Moogle: "What kind of history do they teach down there?"
ORN: "Large sections of history were systematically found missing due to the incompetance of your landbound bretheren, as well as active denial by the spirits."
Moogle: "We formed them out of…well, you could say Love was what we made Holy and Shadow from."
Sakha: "Plu is LIGHT. Min is DARK. Those are natureal states of the world but the Love Element is something that is harder to harness, and can only be manipulated to evil purposes within magic. There is magic that can simulate it, but it is magic that CORRUPTS a person's will. THe True element doesn't corrupt or go against a person's will, it branches out and urges a reaction from it."
The moogle nods. "You know your magical theory."
ORN: "Therefore, Ahiru is a corruptive influence? This could explain her ability to manipulate the amulet."
Hector: "Hm."
Sakha: "No. Ahiru is not the MAGIC, She is the true form."
Felicia: "…Love Element is a duck."
Cassandra Lionheart: "Yeah…ORN, you got to stop that."
ORN: "However anything she performs would act upon it and therefore corrupt it, correct?"
Ahiru quacks.
Riia shrugs and signs, "Why not?"
ORN: "If This Unit understands correctly, Ahiru could prove key to subverting the hostility of the spirits."
[OOC] Hector: Ahiru is not Ibis.
ORN: "If one corrupts negative views enough, they could become neutral, or even friendly?"
Riia blinks
Hector: "That's probably it, Orn. Well, the first part."
ORN: "Mental assimilation"
Riia gazes at the moogle…
Riia frowns…
Sakha: "No, it's not like that. The Magic forces action, the True Form suggests it, but leaves the others with the will to choose."
Riia holds up a sign: "What did they make the other spirits out of?"
ORN: "But suggesting it is simply a more subversive way of attaining the same result. Lead one to believe a course is what they wish for, and they simply resist less."
The moogle continues to be unable to read Riia's sign.
ORN: "Ducks most definitely are quite effective models…"
ORN: "What are the other indirect spirit series based upon?"
Cassandra Lionheart: "Well…Love can overcome anything." *looks at Eric*
Riia taps ORN and points at her sign
ORN nods and repeats his last question
Eric_Lionheart blushes a bit.
Moogle: "The other spirits? No, we made the spirits from the nine elements - after we introduced the aliens' elements."
ORN: "… and the tenth, Grav already had form upon ariving, correct?"
Sakha: "Alien's?"
Moogle: "Aliens, invaders, 'friends', call them what you will. They are not from this world."
Moogle: "And yes, Grav already existed when it got here, so far as we know."
ORN: "… … … Love elemental remains unwieldy. Given its source This Unit suggest it be redesignated Duck Elemental."
Eric_Lionheart sighs.
Moogle: "But what kind of love could have produced that?"
Riia sighs and wracks her brain, trying to figure out what crystal the aliens used…
[OOC] Riia: ….uh, that's actually a good point. Fakir has an unnatural love?
Sakha: "What do yo mean, Ms Moogle?"
[OOC] ORN: heh.
Moogle: "It would have needed the strongest love in the world, to do something like that."
Moogle: "A partnership - a trust…"
Hector: "Huh. So is that what Fakir and Ahiru have?"
[OOC] ORN: no, what's being suggested is that ahiru's the result.
Moogle: "…something that none of the elemental spirits would have allowed room for, with the chaos they have caused."
[OOC] ORN: so someone out there really, really, really, really, REALLY liked ducks.
[OOC] WC GM: Actually both
[OOC] Pak: No, Ahiru looooooooves Fakir
[OOC] Pak: Like hard-core
Sakha: "Well by all accounts, Fakir was hermit that swore off society and lived alone in the woods with animal companions. Ahiru was foremost among these and she has express that he treated her with human deference from the start and taught her about the world."
[OOC] Eric Lionheart: BRB.
Hector: "Hmmmm. No kiddin'."
Moogle: "Fakir…wait, you're from that human place - Refuge, wasn't it?"
ORN: "Of course."
Felicia nods.
Moogle: "Bolt was cracking down on everything not in the big cities - we saw it from up here."
Moogle: "…was Bolt trying to prevent the formation of a love elemental?"
ORN: "Bolt was eliminated with amusingly extreme prejudice. However, Ahiru was already present within the party at the time."
ORN: "This Unit only joined This Group only shortly before Bolt's elimination, thanks to the many images within the area requesting the aid of This Group, minus This Unit of course. If Bolt was attempting to prevent Ahiru's existance, it failed spectacularly."
Eric Lionheart: "Hmm."
Cassandra Lionheart: "True."
The moogle looks at Ahiru. "…did Bolt sacrifice all those people, just to try to keep you from waking up?"
Ahiru quacks as she gave her brooch to Eric.
Ahiru gives a ducky shrug.
Riia signs: "And Grav attempted to co-op…"
Sakha: "Fakir is also King's son if you recall. So Fakir may have actively tried to create the conditions for one."
ORN: "The Trio also."
Eric Lionheart: "We should have brought Fakir with us, dispite the risks."
Cassandra_Lionheart nods
ORN: "Do not underestimate him. His ability to escape Ahiru's grasp is substantial. He would likely have survived the fall if this was the only method available."
Sakha: "We'll just have to ask him when we get back if he wanted to create a Love Elemental."
Sakha: "But next I want to bring up something that worries me… Where are the Spirits?"
ORN: "Currently sealed within the amulet according to Eric's scan are they not?"
ORN: "However whether this is a portal of some sort similar to the polar barriers…"
ORN: "Is this what you suspect?"
Sakha: "All that's in the amulet are the forms of a buch of avatars that have been correpted by the spirits and retain their abilities."
Felicia takes the amulet from Eric, looking it over.
[OOC] ORN: so… Ahiru as the power source, ORN as a focusing/firing array, mount it all on Trombe… and voila. wipe out grav's little moon and maybe a few fleets.
Sakha: "But I can't warrant anything I'd call a SPIRIT. The only SOUL in the lot of it is Ahiru's."
Eric Lionheart: "And as we know, defeating each one makes the remaining stronger. But we don't know if this effects Grav at this point, however."
Sakha: "There is no other sentience."
Cassandra Lionheart: "Yeah."
ORN: "It would be unwise to assume it does not, as Grav is one of the remaining spirits."
ORN: "This Group would simply be fortunate if it did not."
ORN: "Nevertheless, if Ahiru is also affected, this may aid in countering Grav's influence to a limited degree."
ORN: "However love will do little to affect the planetoid itself unless this mental subversion system can be used to affect physical entities"
Sakha: "So what really happens when we defeat an avatar? Is the spirit released into the world, free from the madness of being an avatar? Or has it ceased to exist? Maybe it's trapped somewhere else? Maybe Grav designed the thing to absorb forms why He nabbed the actual spirits."
Riia: =|
Cassandra Lionheart: "Yeah."
The moogle nods at ORN. "That's kind of how white and black magic work - the basis of Plu's and Min's power."
[OOC] Hector: Can we wrap? I have work tomorrow and I need to wake up between 6:30 and 7.
[OOC] Hector: Since it's not DST this weekend, I'm almost passing out on my keyboard.
[OOC] WC GM: Yeah - this session will wrap when the party naps. Next session starts the next morning.
ORN: "Therefore, Focusing Ahiru through the drive This Group encountered earlier could allow This Group to counter Grav's destructive capabilities with equivalent power?"
Eric Lionheart: "As I said before, I suspect Grav has the answers we want."
Hector sighs. "You guys can talk yourselves dry all night, for all I care. I'm gonna grab some shut-eye."
ORN: "Foremost of which is 'Please, no more, This Spirit begs This Group, please stop', of course."
ORN nods and sparkles
Hector heads to bed, muttering something about his ears bleeding from the not-shutting-up.
Cassandra_Lionheart looks at Eric and blushes "Shall we?'
[OOC] Hector: DOOD IT'S FIRST-COUSIN INCEST EW.
Eric Lionheart: "Y..yes, of course. Rest is important."
[OOC] ORN: do it dood!
[OOC] Riia: This group has had worse.
[OOC] ORN: yeah. much worse.
[OOC] Riia: I love how Eric's not willing to put the whole thing to rest, though. =p
[OOC] Riia: And by that I mean outright deny it =D
[OOC] ORN: why would he? that's how it is with white mages.
Cassandra Lionheart: "ORN? Our door please?"
ORN: "Very well. Nothing shall escape This Unit's observational capabilities."
ORN turns head to the moogle for a moment
Sakha: "The rooms are next to the library did you say Ms Moogle?"
Eric_Lionheart ponders that statement.
Cassandra_Lionheart takes Erc by the hand, and blushes
ORN: "Prepare the information This Unit has requested on invader assimilation systems in the meantime. Information is required."
ORN will cover and reinforce the doorway as requested in the meantime
The moogle nods, pointing to the door Hector and Pak went to. "You can sleep in there."
[OOC] ORN: I gots ta get going, need quick shower first, so I'm done too
Sakha: "And the library is…?"
[OOC] Eric Lionheart: I gots EI to prepare for.
[OOC] Riia: On another cloud, isn't it?
Moogle: "Somewhere in the southern hemisphere, last we knew."
Moogle: "I'll prepare transport to its last known coordinates, but I'm afraid you'll have to search a bit."
Sakha: "Will we be meeting up with it?" Her eyes sparkle.
Moogle: "Hopefully."
Riia looks excited as well.
Felicia briefly attempts to use the amulet as a spirit conduit; in the same way she channels her abilities.
Riia will head back to the first room and look over the dissassembled portable converter, garnering ideas for her own version.
Felicia can feel…power. Raw elemental power.
[OOC] Riia: Sleep can wait, damnit!
Sakha: "Alright, I'll work on that report on the use of Plasma for you then, and go to bed." She takes a room and a fresh Notebook out and sets up a desk workstation, taking out her notes on plasma.
Moogle: "Thanks. Err…" The moogle looks at Riia, then follows her.
Ahiru watches as they try out the amulet.
The power feels a bit unfocused to Felicia - her own elemental arts refine it much more smoothly - but there are definite parallels.
The moogle taps Riia on the shin. "Hey…servant unit?"
Felicia: "Hmm." She compares, imbuing it with the different elements they have encountered so far.
[OOC] WC GM: MAG check, Felicia.
[OOC] Felicia: hoo boy
Felicia rolled 1d100 and got 26 ( Total: 26 )
Riia raises an eyebrow at the moogle.
[OOC] Felicia: Fail by 13
The brooch sucks away all of Felicia's MP! Fortunately she drops it before any permanent harm is done.
It is as if it hungered, for something far more than she has.
Moogle: "Hey…umm, you don't look like you're with the invaders. Are you from that group that crashed?"
Riia nods
Felicia shakes her hand off, stepping away. "Urgh. Hmm. Not what I expected, but interesting anyway."
Moogle: "We tried contacting them, but never got a response. Did…well…umm…"
Riia sighs
Moogle: "We saw what Milf did. Do you even remember how you were made?"
Moogle: "I mean, you DO know you're playing with the things that created you - well, our versions of them - right?"
Riia frowns, turns slightly away, then waggles her fingers and nods.
Felicia tentatively picks it up, handing it back to Ahiru.
Moogle: "So…er…please don't think of yourself as disposable like they did. I don't think your friends would like that."
Moogle: "And I don't want to see what's kinda one of my great great great et cetera grandkids throw herself away."
Riia frowns angrily, but isn't looking (or frowning) at the moo-
Riia blinks at the Moogle.
Riia winks at the Moogle and grins slightly (something like "no worries about that.")
[OOC] ORN: she's not part paladin so she'll be fine
Moogle: "That's…why I'm here, at the factory. I heard what Milf did to the survivors…and, well…I kinda helped design you…"
Riia sighs and nods.
Moogle: "Alright. I guess you have your reasons for not talking to me."
Ahiru changes back into a human.
The moogle wanders off.
Riia points to herself, then puts her hands together and holds them off to the side.
Riia rushes over and taps the moogle.
Riia points at her mouth, shakes her head and shrugs.
The moogle looks back.
Moogle: "Yes, I know you aren't talking to me."
Ahiru: "Sometimes I wish I could take what I want from each form to create my own…"
Riia shakes her head in negation.
Riia waves all around and shrugs again.
Moogle: "A vow of silence, to survive that madness?"
Riia blinks
Ahiru looks at Felicia.
Riia waggles her head ("kinda").
Moogle: "Well, whatever. I need to hit the regen cycle myself."
[OOC] Riia: Besides, it's not the Moogles' fault that the- um. well actually it is…indirectly in about four ways, but yeah…
Riia waves as the moogle leaves, then heads back over to the parts for a quick survey.
Felicia still seems to be shaking her hand off from that feeling. "Well, I wouldnt be surprised if you could. Despite a lack of technical information, you seem to have a better grasp of it than any of us."
Riia obtains Partial Portable Convertor Plans!
Ahiru: "Color… height… form… I wonder if I could… someday… be someone… that's just me… I like being a Duck best, but… there are some things that I like to say sometimes…"
[OOC] WC GM: Yay for no character limitations on item names.
[OOC] Riia: Muahaha
Felicia nods and smiles.
[OOC] WC GM: Anyway, sounds like just Ahiru/Felicia need to wrap up, then we're done for today.
Riia wanders off to the vicinity of the nap room, where she'll do whatever she does that approximates naps but minimizes chance of ambush.
Ahiru smiles back. "If I CAN, then… I'll definitely have wings still."
[OOC] Ahiru: Angel Ahiru!
[OOC] Felicia: Haw
[OOC] WC GM: BTW, 11000 XP each for today.
[OOC] Riia: Niceu
[OOC] Eric Lionheart: That's over nine thousand!
[OOC] WC GM: …ending log on that note. >_>
