EC Session 8.1

Afternoon, Merch 3 Gaiaday. //
[OOC] WC GM: Amatsu's running late, so…
[OOC] Hector: Electric Chocobo: Altered Plot F.
[OOC] WC GM: I try to keep backup plots for just this sort of situation.
[OOC] WC GM: It's hard, though.
The screams of chaos that accompanied your return to the surface, and the general destruction attendant to it, have begun to die down.
Riia knows the kinda thing that happens in situations of mass panic. She keeps her rifle ready.
Hector: "…just when I was getting used to it, too."
[OOC] ORN: Eric's negotiation will have to wait then since it starts another fight
Trombe has picked up the party - forcibly, in at least one case - and is running towards the fleet.
Pak: "Where we going off to now?"
Riia signs: "Fleet, Regent"
Pak feels like he can command the power of the aeons more readily, now that he's actually contacted one.
ORN mumbles something mutedly through the beak
A few of the creatures that you had released are hunting down the Yeti. Left and right you can see a seemingly infinite variety of methods employed to torture, maim, or just slaughter the fleeing white furry hulks.
Hector leans forward on his arms. "I hope Random's there, or somewhere around. I've got so much money I feel like I'm gonna turn into a jerkass."
Pak waves to some of the Aeons.
Pak: "Hiii. :O"
Riia frowns.
Cassandra_Lionheart looks at Pak, and blinks.
[OOC] Riia: Hey, look who it is, almost an hour late
[OOC] Hector: That's generally a tactless and not-nice thing to say.
[OOC] WC GM: But it is also true
[OOC] Hector: You could have just said Hi.
[OOC] Pak: hi
[OOC] Eric Lionheart: Not my fault, had unexpected RL stuff to handle. And was lied to about how long it would take. >.>
[OOC] Pak: So now WC hits the load state button to unalter plot?
[OOC] WC GM: Yep
[OOC] WC GM: Actually, I had not yet gotten to the branch point
[OOC] Pak: Ah, okay
[OOC] Riia: Gotta love that F3 key
[OOC] Riia: …shoot, I think that's select state. Load state is F4…
[OOC] Hector: F3 is load in ePSXe.
[OOC] Hector: F3 is also "load save state 3" in VBA or OSwan.
The few Aeons who had not gone to the moon, part the Yeti in the party's path - literally, in a few cases.
Eric Lionheart: "Pak. Request they stop."
[OOC] Riia: I'd been thinking ZSnes.
Pak: "Um."
Pak: "Hey, guys! Could you, sorta, like, corral the yeti so they're all caught in a big circle for negotiations?"
Pak: "Without killing most of them in the process, y'know."
[OOC] ORN: *snrk
Cassandra_Lionheart shakes her head.
The Aeons do not react. It does not look like most of them even heard Pak - and the rest were not paying attention.
Pak: "Aww…"
Pak: "._. They're not really listening.'
Pak: "Oh, that's right, most of them are on the moon."
Pak: "…Wait, so what about these ones that AREN'T on the moon?"
Pak looks at the non-moon-bound-aeons.
Riia shrugs
Eric Lionheart: "They do not appear to listen to you, for some reason."
ORN mumbles something through the beak
Riia signs: "IF they were listening, the'd be on the moon"
Eric Lionheart: "Perhaps they are different then the ones that did?"
[OOC] Pak: WC said a few of them were still around.
[OOC] Pak: So.
[OOC] Riia: No, no.
[OOC] ORN: and that would be the angry ones that DON'T appreciate being tortured for who knows how long they were
[OOC] Riia: If they were listening to you, they'd have already left. Therefore the ones that are left are either unwilling or unable to listen to Pak.
Eric Lionheart: "This could be a problem. We cannot have them running around like this."
Riia loads an Aura Bomb into her rifle and fires it into the air. While the effects will hopefully not be that significant, the spinning, glowing, and flashing should attract the attention of at least some of the Aeons.
Pak: "Or they're consumed with bloodlust, which could be bad."
Hector scratches the side of his head. He figures it's better not to say anything, lest it become a self-fulfilling prophecy.
ORN mumbles something longer, though the shrug's not actually visible
A few of them look up. Looks like you will need something more powerful to reach all of them, though. From their general actions, it appears that Pak's diagnosis is correct.
Riia blinks, looks around the party, and settles her eyes on Sakha.
Eric Lionheart: "This is the one time I wish I studied Holy magic…but I might have a idea."
Riia taps Sakha on the shoulder and signs: "Can you make big magic noise, attract attention?"
[OOC] ORN: shoot HER up into the air? ^^;;;;;;;
[OOC] ORN: granted the explosion would center on US but it certainly would get the attention ;p
[OOC] Riia: Shoot, have you read the fluff for her Limits? Riia's seen her do some damn powerful stuff.
Eric Lionheart: "I'll need Sakha's help for my idea…possibly Pak's as well."
Sakha hms and thinks. "I do have a couple spells I could maximize the noise on… What were you discussing anyway? I was off reviewing information in my head…"
Riia points out the Aeons that are still rampaging.
Riia signs: "Want to calm, so can negotiate with Yeti."
Pak hm.
Pak oh.
Pak: "I can cast some spells."
Eric Lionheart: "If we time our spells correctly, it could result in a highly flashy and hopefully distractive display over a wide area."
Pak: "I think… I can use the Aeon's power a bit more reliably now."
Felicia: "Spell noise?"
Pak: "Since I made contact with them."
Pak: "So…"
Cassandra_Lionheart looks at the other and mumbles "Well, at least it is a better idea then what I was thinking of…"
Eric Lionheart: "The noise likely isn't relavant…we don't know enough to assume that's a reliable method."
Felicia: "Youll either get their attention or startle them. Or both."
Pak: "Well, they're pretty much just killing everything now."
Pak: "Hey, ORN."
Eric Lionheart: "And while we talk, they keep doing that."
Pak: "Can you shoot bombs into the air that explode WITHOUT raining death down upon people's heads?"
Eric Lionheart: "…"
Eric_Lionheart sighs.
ORN taps the beak and mumbles something
Pak: "Like, explode in midair?"
Pak: "Oh, right."
Cassandra Lionheart: "Oh wait…Mind if I try to scream?"
Eric Lionheart: "I'll just keep my ideas to myself then."
Sakha: "Maybe Lightning can me maximized for sound output but minimized in damage output…"
Riia pushes her ears down to her head….
Pak: "Anyway, I'll start off the fireworks!"
Hector: "Lightning? Hey, I can do that!"
Pak spins and tosses some coins into the air~
[OOC] ORN: do I have an arm sticking out?
Pak: The results for Magic Reels are: Left Reel: T H. Center Reel: 1x. Right Reel: N D. Because of the T H and N D results, the Gambler may choose the level of his spell and which spell from that level to cast, which will be cast 1 times.
[OOC] Pak: …ooooh.
[OOC] Eric Lionheart: You almost killed the Aeons. >.>;
[OOC] Pak: No! I was just gonna make something cool happen!
[OOC] Pak: …hm, which spell
[OOC] ORN: you know its gotta be ultima
[OOC] Pak: Old, Black Hole, Celestial Statis, Massacre, Meltdown, Break, Holy, Rebirth, Shield.
[OOC] Pak: Except that it's ST only.
Eric_Lionheart sighs.
[OOC] ORN: old, black hole and break won't work. shield and rebirth kinda pointless here
[OOC] Riia: We're just trying to attract attention, here. Something big and flashy is all that matters.
[OOC] Pak: Holy works then.
Pak fires the coins into the sky, where they turn brighter, and brighter, and brighter…!
Pak shields his eyes from the magical flare lighting up the entire battlefield.
That lights up the area nearby - still not quite enough.
Pak: "Hmm."
Eric_Lionheart casts Absorb: Wind on the party. "Get down."
Pak: "That wasn't quite what I needed."
Pak eep?
ORN decides to take the time, not like he's anything better to do, to try and figure out that assimilation defense on trombe and change things a bit
Riia braces for impact
Cassandra_Lionheart ducks and braces.
Trombe squats down - releasing ORN in the process.
Eric_Lionheart holds up his staff, as the winds pick up rapidly, swirling around the party. He takes a deep breath…and yells "ENOUGH! STOP NOW!", using the wind to carry his voice a considerble distance, hopefully reaching all of those that need to hear it.
ORN snaps his right arm back and smacks his forehead
THAT gets the Aeons' attention. As the echoes of Eric's voice die down, complete and utter silence falls upon the scene.
It is difficult for anyone else to be heard over the winds - but they do carry Eric's voice.
Pak: "…:O"
Riia looks expectantly at Eric.
[OOC] Riia: Jeez, man, type faster
ORN: "Because attracting the bloodlust of those tortured for over a century is an excellent idea when one wants said aeons to remain safe…"
[OOC] Eric Lionheart: Unless you want me to type slower, SHUSH.
ORN is barely heard, over the winds, by anyone aside from himself.
[OOC] Eric Lionheart: It's not exactly easy coming up with the exact thing to say, you know.
[OOC] Riia: Approximate
Riia watches as Eric hunts for the right words. She raises a single eyebrow.
ORN hops onto trombe
Sakha: "I suppose I wasn't needed after all……………."
Eric_Lionheart hmms, taking a moment to think about what to say now that all eyes are on him, knowing full well the fate of a entire race is in his hands now. "Why must you fight? Hasn't there been enough bloodshed already for everyone here? This violence will only result in pointless death and destruction, on a scale not just effecting yourselves, but the entire world."
ORN says quietly, but loudly enough that party can hear "Please do not make your speeches so full of holes that even This Unit can counter…"
[OOC] Riia: Dude, speeches are about emotion, not logic.
[OOC] Riia: If you want logic, read a paper.
[OOC] Eric Lionheart: …
A chorus of…cheering growls?…greet Eric. Apparently they think that affecting the world would be a good thing.
[OOC] Eric Lionheart: Why do I even bother. :/
[OOC] Eric Lionheart: Which side is growling?
[OOC] WC GM: What Riia said.
[OOC] WC GM: The Aeons.
[OOC] Riia: You've got them interested. We don't have time for a full, real speech, so move to the body of your claim.
[OOC] ORN: just make it damn good: remember THEY'VE been fucked over royally, its not as one sided as the fight's making it seem
Eric_Lionheart looks towards the growling Aeons. "…This isn't your world to have a affect on. Perhaps there was once a world you had that right, but you do not have the right to decide that here."
[OOC] Riia: Doesn't have to be that good, this is just a game.
[OOC] Riia: Also, whoa now….
Riia frowns at that.
Pak ._.
Pak: "Um… uh…"
Riia starts debating actions…
ORN: "… ."
The cheering stops instantly.
Pak: "T…t…that was kinda what I promised them, Eric. That this could be their home. ._."
[OOC] Riia: Actions being considered: shooting Eric
Those Aeons the party can see, look contemplative. The Yeti are still running for their lives.
[OOC] Eric Lionheart: Yes, because I'm not a psychic and know everything.
[OOC] ORN: indeed. that was very, very, very dumb…
Riia signs to Eric: "And where else should they go?"
[OOC] ORN: I mean the character, not the player, don't worry ^^;
ORN: "If you will go this route, they need an alternative. a good one."
[OOC] WC GM: For a "very, very, very dumb" line, it worked very, very, very well. Arguing with results, are we? :P
ORN: "do not force them away"
Cassandra_Lionheart is just stunned.
Eric Lionheart: "That doesn't mean, however, that you cannot stay on this world…but to have a dramatic effect on it on the level I describe, that should be earned, not merely given."
Sakha: "And what kind of life would that be if they could not have any lasting effect on the world they live in?"
ORN: "You ask that they and their pain be ignored and forgotten?"
Hector: "I think you all should just shut up 'n let Eric do his thing. The guy's tryin' to have his moment to shine, 'n you're just screwin' it up."
Fakir: "Indeed. Look - he's winning them over!"
Sakha: "If they live here, they have the right to affect this world, but frankly, destroying it would mean they'd have no place TO live. They should work to make the world a more fitting place instead."
The Aeons do, in fact, seem to have given up on hunting the Yeti for now, and are gathering around the party.
It is a small circle - most of the Aeons being up above, heading for the moon - but those with any magic sensitivity immediately feel a dramatic rise in the local concentration of power.
ORN: "There is no right in denying any their voice. If their actions are just, as they were, if rather lost in it, then their effect on the world is undeniable."
Pak feels it. :O
The winds finally die down, and there is peace…for now.
Eric_Lionheart looks around at the assembled crowd of Aeons, not needing the wind to commuicate with them at this point. He knows he has achieved a very unstable break in the fighting, and it cannot be wasted.
Pak stands ready in case they decide to eat Eric.
Riia stands by in case Eric says something monumentally stupid. Again.
[OOC] Hector: brb, yo.
ORN doesn't: the way he said these things to them, its probably better if they do before he makes them hostile to the planet
Pak: "…Uh, so."
Pak: "…We wanna send these guys to the moon too?"
The silence is, eventually, broken by the soft crunching of snow under approaching feet.
Pak: "That's where the big guy who commanded eating all your planets came from-hm?"
ORN: "They deserve to live here. As do the Viera."
Regent and her army are approaching - slowly, carefully.
Cassandra Lionheart: "So, I say we help each other out. That way everybody ends up happy?"
ORN: "Those wishing to fight one of the sources of their capture are welcome to join This Group, but all who were orphaned from their worlds by the Yeti can find refuge on this world. Attempts to the contrary will be met with maximum force, This Unit promises the aeons"
ORN: "Ah, but most innocents and friendlies are really soft, so be careful when playing with them!"
[OOC] Hector: hi.
[OOC] ORN: wb
[OOC] Hector: Not as serious as what kept me out of the game last week, thankfully.
The Aeons cock their heads - apparently, Eric was able to speak to them, but they seem confused by Cassandra and ORN.
ORN: "A greater understanding should likely be required: Pak, are they capable of direct communication? If not, please translate for This Unit"
Pak: "Um."
Pak: "I'm not sure."
Pak: "Hey, can you guys speak any languages?"
ORN: "Then please relay This Unit's previous words"
ORN: "… however, ease of communication should be developped as soon as possible to ensure proper understanding of these new inhabitants"
Hector idly leans over and puts his head on Sakha's shoulder.
ORN looks over at Riia and nods, in a 'your job probably' way
Cassandra_Lionheart looks at the aeons and smiles "You are welcome here is what ORN means."
ORN waits for pak to repeat what he said before saying anything else
Pak …is trying to figure out what ORN said.
Pak isn't the smartest kitty.
Pak: "Um… Okay."
Sakha: "Perhaps magic is the commonality of their communication?"
She's focused on the question at hand and so doesn't complain at Hector.
Eric Lionheart: "I think he wants you, or perhaps I, who they seem to understand, to ask if they know how to speak, Pak."
Pak: "So, he's saying, if you want, you can make this world your home, or you can come help us beat up the moon."
[OOC] ORN: orn said those who want to fight grav are welcome to join the party's upcomming assault on it, but all those who lost their worlds to the yeti are welcome on our planet; just, be careful because some of the innocents and friendlies are really soft and they're pretty strong
ORN: "NO pak. Both."
Pak: "Or both."
One of the Aeons - a four-legged beast, with a horn on its head - walks forward to the group…only to stumble, its leg apparently broken.
Hector moves his eyes upwards to look at Sakha, realizes he's not gonna get blasted, so he doesn't move.
ORN: "Just because they cannot or do not wish to fight does not imply an inability to remain here. An inability to combat marks them as innocents or neutrals at worst"
Pak: "Also, we'll beat up anyone who doesn't like you living here, but we ask that you extend the same courtesy to us and not cause crazy weather or something-eep!"
Eric_Lionheart hops off of Trombe and heads on over slowly, to indicate he isn't a threat. How bad is the wound?
ORN eyes it curiously
Pak doesn't head over slowly.
[OOC] Pak: as in, he heads over non-slowly.
Pak checks the poor thing's leg. :<
ORN muses… beat up, wipe out… eh, pak was close enough
ORN blows out a reis wind pulse; party needed it anyways probably too
Visually, it seems to be just an ordinary broken leg. But Eric can feel the power behind it, and knows it will take more than ordinary arts to set this right.
ORN's wind, for instance, barely cauterizes the wound.
Eric_Lionheart carefully examines the wound, and starts pulling out medical supplies just in case magic isn't effective. "Hmm…this could be tricky, but I'll try. Could you hold still?"
Cassandra_Lionheart looks on. "Eric, Can I help?"
ORN: "ah… most of it went through"
Ahiru walks up and looks at the wound, kneeling next to the Unicorn and petting it comfortingly.
ORN: "they may require a non-destructive form of white…"
Eric Lionheart: "I don't think so, Cassie…this is more then just a mere wound, even if it appears to be as such."
ORN: "Are any others in need of assistance or capable of direct communication?"
Sakha approaches. "That really… it has a strange power I agree…"
[OOC] Riia: Horse with a broken leg, dude, not that hard to deal with. And Riia has a gun…
Cassandra_Lionheart nods and sits down on Trombe and waits
ORN: "Also, Riia, anything in databases regarding such possibilities crafted by the yeti in the past?"
Eric Lionheart: "Sakha, perhaps if we combine our magical power it may work. You do know some healing spells, correct?"
Unicorn - Pak and Ahiru can sense its name - sighs and leans into Ahiru's petting. It mumbles something.
Sakha attempts to Dispel the strange power about the wound.
Riia shrugs.
Eric_Lionheart uses Esuna, just in case it's not something that can be dispelled, but rather purified instead.
Pak: "Spirit's power?"
Riia signs to ORN: "Not know for Yeti, but Moogles definitely had translators."
Pak: "It said something about our Spirit's power."
Pak looks at Ahiru.
Dispel analyzes it at least - the power is Unicorn's life force. It will take something strong - elemental, perhaps - to fix.
ORN: "… they have a use?"
Pak: "Apparently!"
ORN looks at sakha
ORN: "?"
Sakha: "Elemental…?"
Eric Lionheart: "I'm not sure healing magic will work here."
ORN: "? elaborate"
ORN: "Elemental effects, such as with absorbtion shields?"
Eric Lionheart: "Hmm, perhaps."
Sakha: "Ahiru. Channel Milf's powers into the creature, won't you?"
ORN: "Please confirm: any requiring electrical or white in this manner can come to This Unit. In such cases it will seem far rougher than it feels"
Ahiru looks up and nods changing into her Fluffy/Patches form and uses her power.
The wound slowly responds - as if fixing a million wounds all overlapped upon each other.
It takes some concentration, but Ahiru is able to force the bone back into place…
Eric Lionheart: "I must wonder how such a wound can occur."
With a *SNAP*, it suddenly heals.
ORN: "ask the yeti"
Eric Lionheart: "So healing magic won't work on them, but the power of the Spirits can have a effect…"
Unicorn lowers head and looks at Ahiru, eye to eye, horn coming to rest atop Ahiru-Milf's head between her ears.
Eric_Lionheart looks around. Are any of the other Aeons wounded?
Quite a few, now that you have a chance to look. Perhaps this is why they did not head moonwards.
Cassandra_Lionheart breathe a sigh of relief. "It is to pretty to be hurting like that."
ORN: "Which ones however may be relatively uncertain. It would be ideal to have direct communication in order to best handle such aid would it not? Perhaps pak can relay the explanations"
Eric Lionheart: "It seems they can understand me at least."
Hector is watching the whole scene, and just raises his eyebrows in amazement.
ORN: "At the least indicate that nodding and shaking head are common factors in communication here for affirmation and negation"
[OOC] Hector: Sorry. Can't do much here. I'm diplomatically, elementally, and magically inert.
ORN: "even just that could help things in the future greatly"
Ahiru strokes the horn and channels her power into it.
The horn comes off! …well, the outer shell of it. A new, stronger horn grows in underneath.
Pak: "Hm."
ORN: "… ah!"
ORN sparkles a bit
Pak: "Looks like we'll have to heal all these poor aeons."
Pak: "Let's do that first."
Hector: "So you're saying that Ahiru can infuse these things with spirit-power to make them more easily-able to live here?"
Cassandra Lionheart: "That is good news to hear today."
ORN breaks off a finger and offers it to the unicorn
[OOC] Pak: …
Some strands of Unicorn's fur came loose as well, and are now resting in Ahiru's hand.
[OOC] Pak: snrk
Cassandra Lionheart: "Ouch..geeze ORN!"
ORN grows a slightly smaller one back as a show of "see we have things in common"
Eric Lionheart: "Indeed…can any of you speak? It would help greatly in helping you all if we know what to do."
Unicorn looks at Eric and neighs.
Pak: "It wants our 'goddess' to heal them. I guess that's Ahiru."
Pak: "Go ahead~"
Eric Lionheart: "Does the power used matter, though?"
Pak: "I think it does."
ORN: "others have power; it would be worthwhile to understand what works best until such time as they can find an entire flock of ducks. Most races should be capable of aiding eachother after all, but one requires knowledge for this."
Ahiru braids the strands of hair and makes it into a necklace for herself. "My… Goddess?"
[OOC] WC GM: Items obtained just then, if it's not clear: Unicorn Horn (weapon for Sakha), Unicorn Hair (weapon for Ahiru), Ribbon (of unicorn's hair, for Ahiru).
Eric Lionheart: "We might have to see if we can teach them our common language to aid commuication, but that could take awhile…"
Pak: "I'm okay standing around here."
Cassandra Lionheart: "Good thing I can teach."
Pak: "I'm not sure it'd help."
[OOC] Riia: How close is Regent's army?
Pak: "I can understand 'em 'cause I was basically infused with aeon beams from space."
ORN: "learn how to fire those, then."
ORN: "This Unit would certainly like to communicate"
Eric Lionheart: "Okay…how come they understand me, then?"
Pak: "Because you were talking really hard?"
Regent and her companions have been slowly advancing this entire time, just watching the scene play out. They are now gathered in front of Trombe.
Eric Lionheart: "Oh."
Pak: "I dunno."
Eric Lionheart: "Okay guys, talk…harder?"
Cassandra Lionheart: "Maybe they felt your kindness?"
Riia signs at Regent: "Hello, Regent"
Pak: "I think you were communicating on a non-vocal level."
Regent waves to Riia and whispers, "Hi. Umm, is it…safe?"
Eric_Lionheart hmms and nods, then looks at the Regent. "Ah, good to see you are well, Regent."
Pak: "They're calmed down, yeah."
ORN waves at the Regent
Pak: "Ahiru, please heal the others."
ORN: "These are new inhabitants to This World. Communication appears to be a problem at the moment, but that will be resolved in due time. They are not hostile."
Eric Lionheart: "Pak, see if you can learn what form Ahiru should be using first for each one…"
Ahiru casts her healing mgic on the group of Aeons.
ORN takes a closer look at that
ORN tries something less phsyical and bursts out Healing Wind
[OOC] ORN: all 99+2d6 healing of it. POWERFUL stuff
The Aeons approach, one at a time, to be healed. Each one needs a different approach - this one needs Gaia and masonry, that one needs Bolt to tease the spark of life back up, and so on.
None of it is purely healing magic, per se.
Riia eyes Regent, then signs, "We need to go to Moon, or Grav will repeat attacks."
Eric_Lionheart takes notes. This is a most intresting experience…then does a count of just how many are still here.
Ahiru giggles and laughs, liking the feeling of being needed by them.
ORN takes good note of those affected by white, earth manipulation and electricity
There seem to be 49 in all - though 3 of them feel like 1, so really it's only 47.
[OOC] Pak: …wait, so is Doomtrain around then?
And that's discounting obvious group entities, like Doomtrain and its passengers, or those crusader-looking fellows.
[OOC] WC GM: Yes.
Pak climbs up on Doomtrain. :3
Doomtrain toots happily.
[OOC] Eric Lionheart: And most gone to the moon…
Cassandra_Lionheart watches the streams of aeons go by, and stares in awe.
Eric Lionheart: "There appears to be alot of them…"
ORN will go to those he has elements for and try and tell them if they ever need but can't find ahiru, he can help with those.
Eric Lionheart: "This could take years to learn even a fraction of what we can."
ORN: "If translation can be achieved, it will go much faster."
Eric Lionheart: "Well, they can understand me, but I can't understand them. Pak can translate, but he's only one person. It's a disadvantage…hopefully they can learn our language."
ORN does not see Ahiru using White - Plu's and Min's powers are not yet captured. Ahiru has a little more trouble with the Aeons specializing in those elements, but they do respond to her treatment.
ORN will tentatively try to supplement with his own white on one; holding way back to make sure first
One of the more obviously mechanical Aeons - Alexander, as Ahiru and Pak know - responds well to that.
Pak blinks.
Cassandra_Lionheart waves to the aeons as they pass by, looking happy as they pass by her.
Pak suddenly, looks around.
[OOC] Eric Lionheart: Does this mean Ark is around and we have a kickass airship? >.>
[OOC] WC GM: Aye
Pak: "…Someone…"
Pak crawls along the top of doomtrain. "Someone here seems similar to me."
Eric_Lionheart looks up at the airship shaped Aeon. "Hmm…"
Pak sniffsniff.
Sakha walks and helps the spirits she can with thunder, fire, water and ice.
ORN nods at the mechanical one
Eric Lionheart: "Could we use that one to get to the moon? It's flying."
Pak clambers along towards an aeon near the edge of the group.
Cassandra Lionheart: "Uh Eric?"
Pak: "…"
Cassandra_Lionheart looks to where he is looking.
Pak: "This guy!"
ORN: "A lack of thrusters… gravitics perhaps? however this could mean interference from Grav."
Pak: "This guy right here!"
Eric Lionheart: "Just a thought…we do kind of need a way to get up there."
Eric_Lionheart looks at Pak. "Huh?"
Pak suddenly runs up to… Yojimbo!
Pak looks up at the samurai. ":x"
As ORN says that, one of the Aeons - a dark sphere crackling with energy - hovers over ORN's head.
ORN feels lighter suddenly - but barely not enough to float.
Yojimbo looks impassively back at Pak.
[OOC] Ahiru: Now in our next game, it will be 1000 years later in this world where we will then have Summons
ORN: "Ah. Eric, Sakha. Direct elemental offensives function to heal their damage, if of the appropriate classifica~ oo.oo"
Pak: "…"
Eric Lionheart: "I wonder who this one is. It seems to like you, ORN."
Pak: "You like money too, huh?"
ORN: "Hm!"
Pak tailswish.
Yojimbo nods.
Cassandra Lionheart: "Wow…"
Eric Lionheart: "Maybe a combined effort from multiple ones could get us to the moon…"
Hector sits back up and isn't on Sakha's shoulder anymore. He rubs the back of his neck and watches the scene.
Eric_Lionheart takes note of that one's effect.
Pak: "I wonder if the whole money-spending thing… was 'cause of you."
Yojimbo's helmeted head shakes in the negative.
ORN: "The ORN series welcomes you, dark one. Feel free to try a toss: repairs are easy given the current obsidian. Your idenfication would be appreciated of course"
Pak: "Oh."
Pak: "I wonder what that was, then~!"
Yojimbo makes a bunny-ears sign atop its helmet.
Eric Lionheart: "I'm going to need another notebook, and I'm going to need some names here."
Pak: "…Ah. Well, I know THAT, but I mean… why money? c.c"
ORN: "This Unit likes this one!"
Yojimbo shrugs.
Pak: "Oh, right. Converters."
Pak shrugs and heads off~
Hector looks around, wondering if any of the aeons are beautiful women.
[OOC] Pak: They are.
Quite a few of the aeons are.
Pak heads over to Hector. "Whatcha looking at?"
There's that one who gives "Ice Queen" a whole new meaning, for example - but breathtaking to look at.
Hector: "Oh, uh…just admirin' the scenery."
Pak: "…"
Pak looks around.
Pak: "Ah, I see!"
ORN tries making himself into a similar ball
ORN eventually feels himself floating off the ground…before the sphere almost seems to sigh, and gravity returns to normal.
ORN impacts the ground, rolls, and sparkles
Hector: "Probably doesn't even work that way in the first place, so lookin' is all I can do."
He sighs, sort of sadly.
Pak: "I'll find out~"
Cassandra Lionheart: "These creatures are very beautiful in thier own ways. And also very powerful."
[OOC] ORN: just make sure you don't freeze it off in the process
Pak heads for… yeah, no, no more ice queens.
Eric Lionheart: "Indeed…good thing we can help them."
Pak looks around more.
Eric Lionheart: "Pak, get us their names so we can start identifing them if you can."
Pak: "Oh, kay!"
Pak starts at wherever he is. "Hey, can I have your names?"
Actually, looking at that Ice Queen a bit more…she almost seems similar to Sakha. No tail, though, and otherwise more human than mithra.
Eric_Lionheart walks up to Pak so he doesn't have to yell the names over to him.
Pak gets a list of names. It is quite a long list.
Hector quirks an eyebrow up, suspiciously, at the ice queen. Something seems a bit too familiar.
ORN forms back to standard and walks over
[OOC] WC GM: Need me to name them all?
Pak heads back to Hector. "Okay, so that ice-girl is Shiva…"
Pak: "That nearly naked girl with the harp is Siren, that girl in the robes is Lakshmi…"
[OOC] Hector: Open up the FFX strategy guide and that's about 20 named right there.
[OOC] WC GM: For the record, it's the standard Summon set in FFRPG Core.
Hector: "So that's 'er name, huh."
Pak: "Those tiny girls there with wings are Sylph, those three bug-costumed girls are the Magus sisters…"
Eric_Lionheart seems to be writing down the basic description and name.
[OOC] Hector: The only remotely-attractive Magus sister is the middle one. I DO NOT LIKE GONKS AND LOLIS. D:
Pak: "That larger girl with the wings is Fairy… that 3-headed-girl-thing is Asura…"
Cassandra_Lionheart waves to the Magus sisters.
ORN will add it to his library crystal
The Magus sisters seem to be distacted, talking amongst themselves.
Pak: "That angel girl is Seraphim…"
Pak: "…Oh, and… uh."
Pak looks at a certain chained-up, wailing figure.
Pak: "…I think that one's a girl, but I don't know why. Anyway, I think she yelled 'anima' at me."
Hector: "Some of 'em are certainly easy on the eyes, gotta say that."
ORN: "You may wish to identify those not of a female gender also"
ORN nods at Hector
Pak: "I have the rest of them on this list."
Pak holds it up.
Pak: "I was just getting Hector filled in :3"
Eric Lionheart: "…You already wrote them down?"
Pak: "Yeah. It wasn't hard."
Cassandra_Lionheart looks and siits back down.
Eric_Lionheart takes the list and starts making a copy.
ORN notes those down
ORN: "Diabolos hm?"
ORN nods
Pak looks up at the airship buzzing around.
Pak: "The airship's name is Ark!"
Pak: "We could probably ask him to transport us around."
Eric Lionheart: "Can we use Ark to reach the moon?"
[OOC] Hector: Actually, I wonder: would there be a story-sequel campaign to this one at some point?
[OOC] WC GM: We can discuss that when we reach the end.
Pak heads back towards Siren. >.>~
Pak: "This is probably a bad idea~"
Cassandra Lionheart: "Why is using Ark a bad idea?"
Pak: "Oh, no, Ark seems fine!"
ORN: "Well for one thing using implies exploitation"
Pak: "Mr. Ark, would you help us with our transportation needs? :O"
Cassandra Lionheart: "Please, sir?"
Ark squawks and squeals.
Pak: "…"
ORN: "It may require something?"
Pak: "…I didn't expect it to sound like a bird. ._."
Pak: "Ark says he can only take us around on the planet."
Pak: "He can't fly in space."
The squawks and squeals are obviously mechanical, though similar to birds'.
Cassandra Lionheart: "Ah, okay."
ORN points at the orb
Pak: "Atomos maybe."
ORN: "Controlling gravity could allow one to retain enough air for you to survive when combined, as well as possibly allowing escape from the planet"
Riia shrugs.
[OOC] Pak: The orb is Atomos? Isn't atomos a giant mouth?
[OOC] ORN: orb should be diabolos
Pak: "…Oh."
Riia signs: "Want to speak with Mignon Yeti, and settle her in with other Mignons, perhaps…"
Pak: "Apparently, this orb…"
Pak: "Is only enough to barely lift us."
Riia signs: "But teleport wall is gone, is long, long trip now."
Pak: "Atomos got beat up by Grav."
Cassandra Lionheart: "Oh, yeah, we need to do that."
Pak: "Where is Atomos's body?"
Pak touches the black orb, as if looking around for something that's missing.
ORN: "Perhaps one should research the possibility in refuge's libraries"
Cassandra Lionheart: "I think we should look up the possibilty there."
ORN: "Alternatively, if Diabolos would like a copy of this float stone…"
Pak: "No, this is Atomos. Diabolos is that dracula-looking guy."
Pak points to the devilish-looking person surrounded by bats.
ORN: "Ah. This Unit apologises."
The black orb ripples. A pure tone rings out.
Pak oh?
[OOC] Pak: Dracula is canon.
[OOC] Pak: Because the Belmonts were vampire hunters. :3
[OOC] ORN: yeah but he shows up as a bigass orb ;p
Pak: "Oh, sorry!"
Pak takes his hand away.
ORN: "?"
Pak: "Ahiruuu, Atomos really hurts still."
[OOC] WC GM: Actually, Diablos is a demon-like figure. Or vampire-like.
[OOC] Pak: Well, yeah.
ORN: "What does he require?"
[OOC] Hector: One of my artifacts is a Belmont family heirloom from a castle-exploring ancestor.
[OOC] Pak: Hector tells stories about his ancestors to Pak, at least he did at one point probably.
ORN: "If mass and materials, a transfer should be simple enough"
[OOC] Pak: So Pak's never actually SEEN Dracula~ just knows it's evil and bats.
ORN stares at the delicious cooling magma below
[OOC] Hector: More than likely. "Lemme tell you a little something about the awesome history of the Belmont family!"
[OOC] Pak: Ooh, tell me a story oniichan~
[OOC] Pak: etc etc
Riia frowns and signs at Pak: "What is required for healing?"
Pak: "What do you need to get healed, Mr. Atomos?"
Riia signs in clarification: "Just energy of proper type? And here, is Negative Energy, like Min?"
Atomos speaks in another tone.
[OOC] Pak: Also, Pak + Can't Swim + Siren = Bad End. :O
[OOC] Riia: lawl
[OOC] ORN: well maybe she can keep you well oxygenated?
Pak: "He says he needs time… but that we don't have time, 'cause grav'll come after us."
Riia frowns.
ORN: "That much was already understood. He need not worry."
Eric Lionheart: "There is still a few things that need doing…"
Riia nods.
ORN: "… hm…"
ORN tosses atomos a speed drink
Pak: "For now…"
Pak: "!"
Pak grin!
Pak: "Hey, Regent!"
Pak suddenly spins.
The speed drink disappears into Atomos.
Cassandra_Lionheart looks at Pak and sighs "I hate that grin sometimes."
Pak: "I got an idea!"
Regent: "Hmm?"
Pak: "Let's let the aeons and yeti take refuge in Refuge until all this is dealt with!"
ORN: "Its not much time, but if sakha explained properly there is a slim chance that will help"
ORN: "…"
ORN shakes head
Eric Lionheart: "We'll have to talk with the Yeti first."
ORN: "Bad idea to keep them together right now"
Regent: "…"
Pak: "…Or at least the aeons."
Eric Lionheart: "Lets see if we can find a group of them and see if they are willing to listen."
Regent: "…we could take the Aeons, sure."
ORN: "do you honestly want them in the same area when the aeons may still be incapable of proper defense? The yeti may have regrouped and rethought their tactics by now."
Pak: "What do we do with the remaining yeti, then?"
ORN nods at Regent
Regent: "The Yeti…really should stay here."
Pak: "…Okay."
Pak: "I guess it's not cold enough down south anyway."
Pak looks at the aeons.
ORN: "… not that dragging invaders to warmer climates would be entirely unamusing to This Unit at the moment…"
Riia points at the arctic wasteland around them and signs: "Is perfect for yeti. However, want integration to prevent recurrance of prior wars."
ORN nod
Cassandra_Lionheart looks at ORN and cracks a smile.
Pak: "Any of you that are capable, we'd like to go to someplace warmer to plan things."
Eric Lionheart: "Riia is right."
Pak: "Ark, can you carry us and some Aeons to refuge?"
ORN: "Discern which are capable of surrender and which continue to plan the annihilation of this world."
Riia signs: "Perhaps volunteers for ambassadors?"
Pak: "Any that are small enough."
Regent: "I've had some of our forces round up the Yeti. A few of them can speak our language."
Hector is the de facto representative of Shaft at this point. :E
ORN: "after the elimination of the latter, the others can stay here. no one else likes this place anyways except perhaps her"
ORN looks at shiva for a moment at saying that ^^;
Riia shrugs, then blinks
Riia shakes her head breifly, thinking-
Hector blushes a little bit after looking at Shiva.
Shiva shrugs, leans on Ramuh and Ifrit, and grins.
[OOC] Riia: This is the South Pole, right? The Elvaan are at the North pole?
Riia signs: "North Pole Elvaan do not mind cold. Perhaps integration can begin with them?"
Cassandra Lionheart: "That could work."
ORN: "They are well armed and equipped while led by santa. This could work."
ORN nods at Riia
[OOC] Pak: Oh, yeah, it's south pole.
[OOC] WC GM: Yes.
Riia nods: "Can defend selves, if repaired home base can move, adjusted to environment."
Riia signs: "Seems perfect, if willing to accept truce."
Riia signs: "Further, encourage visits by Moogles. Moogles fought Grav directly, not Yeti, so may be willing to set aside."
Riia gives people a chance to read that, then finishes with, "Moogles can trade, encouraging integration."
ORN: "any making threats or unreasonable demands or otherwise showing remaining hostility must be eliminated so integration can occur with the remainder. Also be wary of explosives often carried by their offspring."
ORN: "Santa's forces should know how to handle themselves without much incident, however"
Cassandra Lionheart: "Yeah."
Regent begins making her way back to the ships. Her army and the Aeons follow.
Pak looks up at Ark, to see if he'll help with transportation.
Ark is merilly bopping along in the sky.
ORN pats poor trombe, already being replaced in pak's heart ;;.;;
Riia signs: "Visit Mignons, visit Mignon Yet" before she frantically rewrites.
Riia signs: "Mignons very good example for integration!"
Cassandra_Lionheart nods "Very true."
Eric Lionheart: "You know, that's a very good point."
Riia signs: "Hume, Elvaan, Mithra, and Yeti!"
Hector: "Well, we should visit the Mignons, anyway. They've got fairly good armor-crafting skills, even if their taste is a bit…horrible."
Riia signs: Can persuade to relocate here?"
ORN: "This Party may be a less… distasteful example of integration, if that is your argument, Riia…"
Pak: "Kay, he looks like he'll help."
Pak: "Let's get everyone that wants to travel with us on Ark!"
"Can you carry Trombe, Ark?"
ORN: "or do you wish to frill, bow and lace torture victims so early in their freedom?"
Ark swoops down and plucks a startled Trombe from the ground!
ORN jumps on
Cassandra Lionheart: "ORN. I like thier cute outfits. Don 't knock them!"
Ark pauses, reverses, and settles down for everyone else to board.
Pak: "W-what D:"
Riia blinks
Riia boards, then.
ORN: "Trombe Unit, Hold Fire. Pak's Orders were erroneous, simply."
Cassandra_Lionheart get on Ark and smiles
Hector climbs aboard, honestly a little weirded-out at the idea of a sentient airship.
Pak helps shoo everyone who doesn't travel via water or fly to get on. Including many summons.
ORN happy to meet more sentient nonfleshies
Pak: "…>_> M-miss Siren~ Are you gonna travel with us?"
The Aeons resist being shooed onto Ark.
Pak: "…Aw…"
Regent: "Let me handle them. You go on ah-"
Regent pauses, bringing her radio to her ear.
Regent: "…you DEFINITELY go on ahead. There's something waiting for you in Refuge City."
She smiles.
Pak: "…Oh? Okay."
[OOC] Riia: Oh yeay, invasion with mind control
Pak climbs onto Ark, then.
ORN: "?"
Cassandra_Lionheart looks at Regent and frowns.
Felicia: "?"
Eric Lionheart: "I suppose we'll leave things here up to you, then, Regent?"
ORN: "Is it the kind of thing one annihilates, or the kind of thing one rejoices at?"
Regent: "The latter. I'm pretty sure."
Pak: "Let's go, then! Everyone on!"
Pak peeks down at the aeons from Ark's bridge.
Eric_Lionheart boards Ark.
Pak: "… H…hurry along, then, okay?"
Regent: "We will!"
Eric Lionheart: "Well, we can't get to the moon, but it'll speed travel up at least. That helps."
ORN: "Ensure their safety on the way."
Ark takes off once all are aboard.

[OOC] Riia: 17, rather
Those who failed the check wind up against the rear bulkhead, before the initial burst of acceleration dies down. Fortunately, Trombe passed.
Eric_Lionheart erghs a bit. "Unexpected…"
ORN: "Excellent"
Hector manages to keep his balance. "Ah! Whew, okay. I think I'm fine."
Cassandra_Lionheart hits hard "Ouch! That is some strudy wood!"
[OOC] Hector: Sakha didn't even roll. :E
Pak rolled 1d100 and got 26 for a total of 26
Pak doesn't.
Sakha rolled 1d100 and got 33 for a total of 33
[OOC] WC GM: Neither did Ahiru?
[OOC] Sakha: What am I rolling?
[OOC] Hector: Too bad Sakha and I didn't fail, or else it could be some lulz moments.
[OOC] WC GM: AGI check
Ahiru rolled 1d100 and got 73 for a total of 73
[OOC] Hector: You're rolling Agi to avoid crashing into the backseat of the airship, essentially.
WC GM rolled 1d100 and got 2 for a total of 2
[OOC] Ahiru: pass
[OOC] Sakha: pass
Fakir stands QUITE firm against the acceleration. Has an arm around Ahiru to brace her, even.
ORN: "Ah?"
ORN looks down over the edge
Hector looks over at Sakha. "Well, good thing to you grabbed onto my arm when you did."
Cassandra_Lionheart finally is able to move again, and walks over to Erc, and hugs him.
The world is rushing by underneath, at a faster pace than ORN has ever witnessed before.
Pak @_@
Sakha: "I-It was just handy, that's all."
She blushes
Hector: "I'm handy now, am I?"
He chuckles.
ORN: "This Unit must learn such acceleration.. should prove handy…"
ORN: "Pak! Ask Ark how!"
ORN: "This Unit wishes to learn!"
Ark toots merrily before Pak can translate.
Felicia: "It's faster than I thought it would be…"
Riia nods.
Pak: "I am the wind! Watch me soar!"
"is what he said."
Even at this speed, though, it still takes until sunset to return to Refuge City.
There is a small crater next to the city, that was not there last time.
Ark sets down in said crater.
ORN: "hm. conversion or sheathing in an alternate element then? … perhaps he integrates wind as one does earth?"
ORN: "… ?"
Cassandra_Lionheart see the crater, and tries to see if you know whose house is where Cass thinks it is….
The city seems intact, and mostly as remembered. The crater did not affect any structures.
ORN jumps down into the crater, sticks it in, and tries to see if there's residue that would indicate what blew up
Pak: "Crater…?"
Pak looks about.
ORN finds traces of explosive compounds, lots of water, and soon intuits moogles' work.
Riia signs: "Kupostein?"
ORN: "It would seem… Moogles tried to fly"
Cassandra Lionheart: "Tried being the operative word.."
Eric Lionheart: "Hmm…"
[OOC] ORN: half wish I'd had sunglasses there ;p
Trombe hops out - only to be picked up by a Yeti.
Trombe: "…"
Pak: "…w-wah"
Cassandra Lionheart: "Put Trombe down..He is orney today!"
The Yeti waves. "Regent said you would be coming!"
Cassandra Lionheart: "Oh, hey. How are you doing?"
ORN: "… Oh. its that one"
Hector Hm's. "Well, s'pose there's such thing as the universe having a running gag."
MignonLilas: "Go easy on her! She hasn't come up with-"
MignonRose: "Nyo!"
Riia sighs
ORN: "Ark. That particular one has had its conciousness eliminated and replaced with that of… … one of those girls."
ORN: "Be warned however you may be at risk of… decoration."
Riia petpets Mignon Yeti
Hector imagines Ark repainted pink and with ribbons and sparkles, and then is suddenly overcome with a very real feeling of dread.
MignonLilas: "Ark? Oh, is that your airship?"
She steps out from behind the white furry tower.
Eric Lionheart: "…"
Cassandra Lionheart: "Hello, ladies. How are things?"
Mignon Rose steps out as well, on the other side. "We're not here for that nyo. We're here to upgrade Trombe nyo!"
ORN: "… Does it involve what detonated here?"
Eric Lionheart: "Upgrade? What sort of upgrade?"
Riia grins delightedly.
Riia points at the moon and tilts her head, questioning.
A certain other mithra smith steps out behind Mignon Rose, blushing in her cute black outfit. "Umm. Hi guys, long time no see!"
Mignon Rose GLARES at her. "Nyo, Noir, nyo."
Noir: "…nyo."
[OOC] Riia: Ahh, the almost Mignon Noir
Cassandra_Lionheart giggles "How cute."
Noir looks quite put upon.
Pak: ":3"
Hector: "Hey, nice to see you all, too. So, let's get down to business."
Riia gives Noir a brief hug.
Noir hugs back, and whispers, "Help?"
ORN nods at Noir
Riia signs to Noir: "How?"
[OOC] ORN: but doesn't help
Cassandra Lionheart: "Yes, business."
Mignon Rose bops Noir on the head. "No escape for you, nyo! You're my apprenticce and that's that, nyo!"
MignonLilas: "Umm. Thank you for finding our sister, Mignon Blanc."
Riia hears a distinct lack of excitement there.
MignonLilas: "Could…I talk to you for a moment?"
She looks at the other three. "In private?"
Cassandra_Lionheart head tilts.
ORN: "… To all?"
MignonRose: "Huh nyo?"
Pak: "Okay."
Noir: "She said she wanted to talk to them alone."
Mignon Rose glares at Noir.
Noir: "…nyo."
Cassandra Lionheart: "Eric, do you think we have to visit HER again to get any help?"
MignonRose: "Oh nyo. Okay nyo! Let's go nyo!"
[OOC] Hector: All I can think of when I see "Noir" is the Strike Noir from Stargazer/SRWK.
Eric Lionheart: "I think we'd be better talking to a brick wall in that case, Cassandra."
Mignon Rose leads the two - with Trombe, still being carried - back into the city.
[OOC] Riia: Hey, you could be thinking of lesbian assassins.
Mignon Lilas looks distinctly nervous as they leave.
[OOC] Hector: So she's…a mecha-musume.
Cassandra Lionheart: "Yeah. But she'll talk as normal, as long as I am not there it seems. She is still wise…I think."
[OOC] ORN: I do so love the look of the shurouga. pretty much what I'd imagined orn as originally way back when, save a bit on the colors ^^;;;
Pak: "Hm…"
ORN: "In any case, what is the reason for this private conversation?"
MignonLilas: "Well…I think the fact that Blanc had herself fired out of a cannon to get back here quickly proves that she's back to her old self…"
Riia raises an eyebrow.
Cassandra Lionheart: "I dunno..Maybe discussing the upgrades?"
MignonLilas: "Ah! I'm rambling. I…err…w-wanted to make sure you knew exactly why I am so grateful to you."
MignonLilas: "But this needs to remain a secret."
ORN: "?"
MignonLilas: "You see…umm…she…wasn't my scatterbrained clerk. Not originally, anyway."
Riia raises the other eyebrow, too.
Hector is sitting behind Sakha with his arms around her stomach.
MignonLilas: "Just a hunch, but she's probably said or done something to indicate she was around back at the time of the Volcannon, right?"
ORN nods
MignonLilas: "And from your reaction, I take take it you know about her Soul Stab."
MignonLilas: "Though I didn't see that thing on her."
Eric Lionheart: "We destroyed it."
Mignon Lilas blinks.
Pak: "Well, no, it got destroyed in the process of her changing bodies."
ORN: "Without allowing This Unit to eat, either -_-"
MignonLilas: "Just using it would not have destroyed it."
ORN shakes head at Pak
Pak: "…Oh?"
ORN: "he threw it at felicia's plasma"
Pak: "I thought it did. NEvermind."
Cassandra Lionheart: "Really?"
ORN: "Knowing full well This Unit was walking around in tasteless land and hungry…"
ORN: "It was a mean and inconsiderate form of disposal, but the use of the dagger did not, as mingon guessed, destroy it"
Mignon Lilas looks, wide-eyed, then runs up and hugs Felicia. "You? Th-thank you!"
Eric Lionheart: "ORN, to be fair I don't exactly think you absorbing a soul sucking dagger was a good idea."
ORN: "Magma doesn't turn This Unit into a volcano, why would soul sucking daggers turn This Unit into a soul sucking dagger?"
After a bit, the Mignon releases Felicia. "I…should have done that after I first saw it. It ruined my mentor."
MignonLilas: "Even if it did save her life."
Riia blinks and nods, understanding.
ORN: "So that's what she was"
MignonLilas: "She…she was old when I first knew her. She taught me everything. I adored her…but her health was failing."
MignonLilas: "After the Volcannon fired - when those with knowledge were hunted…"
ORN: "Unfortunately those without knowledge were later hunted after pyr's elimination."
MignonLilas: "One tried to trash her…well, my, by that point…shop. My mentor had been working on this as an experiment, and used it."
Pak …!
Riia blinks
Riia nods.
Pak: "O…oh! So then, it wasn't her original body to begin with?"
Riia signs: "Exactly."
Riia signs: "Was mental trauma result of swap, or shock, or guilt?"
Mignon Lilas shakes her head. "But the transfer…her new body was messed up or something. Most of her mind didn't make it."
Pak: "…c.c"
Hector sighs. "Wow, that's pretty tragic."
Pak: "Oh…?"
MignonLilas: "M-maybe it was just the result of taking a damaged body. I haven't seen any sign of that this time."
Riia signs: "When you say back to normal, do you mean back to Volcannon-era self?"
ORN: "Possible. It would likely be inadvisable to transfer a conciousness to a damaged section"
MignonLilas: "Maybe the body I first knew her in wasn't her original. She'd be the only one who'd know, and now…"
Lilas shrugs.
MignonLilas: "She still doesn't remember being who she was. I think that part of her is gone forever."
Pak: "…Well, it's gone now, right? Or…"
Pak: "…"
Riia nods…
MignonLilas: "She does remember being my assistant."
Felicia: "A-ah, it was nothing."
Pak >.O
Pak: "Well, wait."
MignonLilas: "So, instead of my mother, she is my sister - our sister, with Rose and Noir too."
Pak: "…Ohhhhhhh."
Riia nods.
Pak: "I see. :O"
Cassandra Lionheart: "Aww."
[OOC] Hector: …and there's a Gundam Rose, too. Two of them are mecha-musume. XD
ORN: "… This Unit can see how that would be a good thing. Mothers are extremely hostile…"
Cassandra Lionheart: "This is different ORN. My mom is senile."
ORN: "?"
[OOC] Hector: So…Mignon Lilas is the Nobel Gundam, and Mignon Yeti is Boss Borot.
MignonLilas: "Come by tomorrow and we can talk more. Right now, however, there is someone else who wishes to see you."
Pak: "Someone else?"
ORN: "?"
Eric Lionheart: "ORN, my mother isn't hostile, so Cassandra's is a very extreme exception."
ORN: "… ah. you have one too"
Cassandra Lionheart: "Very, VERY, extreme."
Mignon Lilas nods, standing up straighter, her nervousness gone. "Yes! In fact, we were specifically asked to take you to them - we said we needed to talk with you to get to work on Trombe first, but after that."
Pak: "Oh! Okay, let's go. c.c Where are we going?"
Cassandra_Lionheart wonders who they are talking about…
ORN: "So what exactly is their use anyways?"
Mignon Lilas heads into town, beckoning the group to follow. "Oh, it's just a little something."
Pak is curious…
The Mignon smiles.
Cassandra_Lionheart shrugs and follows.
Riia points up at the moon and tilts her head interrogatively.
Eric_Lionheart follows.
ORN looks at eric and cassie while following
ORN: "?"
Eric Lionheart: "Hmm?"
MignonLilas: "You can worry about your duties in the morning. For now, someone else wants to help you relax."
ORN: "What is their use when not hostile?"
Cassandra Lionheart: "Relax?"
Riia signs at ORN: "ORN: you understand creator?"
Pak wants to know who it iiis. ._.
ORN nod at Riia
Riia signs: "All living things make own copy. Is part of why is life."
ORN: "Of course. This Unit understood the Creators and their wishes quite well."
ORN: "… self copies?"
Mignon Lilas rounds a corner onto a main street. The street is lined with tables of food and filled with crowds. A banner strung overhead spells out, "WELCOME HEROES".
Riia signs further: "Most known things have two creators, one which has part of…instruction, and one of which has rest of instruction and….factory?"
Eric Lionheart: "Well, copies isn't the word I'd us-…"
MignonLilas: "Well, everyone, actually. It's a party in your honor!"
Pak …!
Pak: "P…partyyy~!"
Riia signs: "Creator with factory is 'Mother.'"
The crowd erupts in a cheer and mobs the group.
ORN: "… Ah, like viera food production errors that resulted in sentients?"
Riia blinks
Pak kyaAAAH~
MignonLilas disappears quickly amidst the crowd.
Cassandra_Lionheart smiles..and quickly frowns, looking around for her or any other "sisters" of her own..
Eric Lionheart: "Wow."
ORN: "Well, during Milf's disrupted time"
Riia blinks a few moments, pushing back bad memories. "Essentially, but…"
Riia signs: "But non-sentients were errors, errors created and reinforced by Milf."
ORN: "So the mother is the one comitting the rape with the goal of self-replication."
Cassandra sees no sign of her family. They may be there, but if so, it is hard to see.
ORN: "is the presence of the other gender the reason for eric not being identical to his own mother?"
Riia blinks
Cassandra_Lionheart goes to sit down at a table.
Riia signs: "In most cases, rape is not correct."
ORN just looks straight at pak
ORN looks back at Riia
Riia signs: "Are cultural issues. First, though, yes, other gender is why Eric not identical."
Hector gets off of Trombe, helping Sakha down as well.
ORN stares back at Pak… then back at Riia
Riia signs: "….Most cases, yes?"
The crowd surges among the group, separating most of them…though they let Hector and Sakha, Ahiru and Fakir, and Cassandra and Eric stay together.
Eric Lionheart: "Busy here."
[OOC] WC GM: Retcon Hector's action: Trombe is long since gone.
ORN: "is this a random chance affair, or does one or the other have influence in the design?"
Pak w-wwaahh~
