[OOC] Sugarlips: Grand Total: 282
[OOC] Gerald: crit, it ded
Aleith|DM: RIP
[OOC] Gerald: actually it ded even from static damage alone
Gerald: "…Anyway."
Garrett` flies back onto the deck and resumes his cross-armed stance.
Garrett: "Where were we…"
Ernst: "Waiting to reach our destination, mostly."
Rock: "Good work with those devils! They didn’t know what hit 'em!"
Rock: "Onwards to Thistle Palace!'
Gerald: "That's how we typically operate, yeah."
Chandrasekhar: "Nicely done, everyone." Chandrasekhar's been piloting the ship stalwartly!
Aleith|DM: The Chessboard Forest burns below you during your short flight towards the palace. To the east of the forest marches a century of devils, fire marking much of their trail.
Aleith|DM: As you approach Clover, the capital city burns in places, and the Great Delve River has drained through one of the cracks in the world, leaving behind a muddy grotto that splits the city. The noble east bank has the most damage, with its wealthy houses thoroughly ransacked for gold.
Garrett: "…it looks more like a checkerboard now."
Garrett: "…okay that was rude."
Garrett‘ rubs his face.
Zane: "But not inaccurate."
Gerald: "What’s the - oh, the red."
Aleith|DM: As you approach the palace, you can make out a much larger airship about 400 feet above the palace.
Aleith|DM: Nearly two hundred feet long, the airship belches diesel smoke from behind two broad steering wings woven of gold thread. Narrower stabilizing fins line the port and starboard, also gold. In fact, the entire hull is painted gold, and anything that can be made of metal is ostentatiously gold. There are even golden grills on the bottom of the hull.
Aleith|DM: Dozens of arcane fusils sit behind closed weapon ports along each side of the ship.
Zane: "Wow. That… is certainly something."
Aleith|DM: Lesser devils escort cargo thopters from elsewhere in the city to the huge infernal treasure ship, and the crew offloads assorted golden items into the hold.
Garrett: "It's very…" He sighs, looks at the group. "Adjectives, everyone."
Zane: "It *is* very."
Phyllis: "Gaudy."
Gerald: "Structurally unsound. Do they not know how weak and malluable gold is, and how low it's melting point is?"
Aleith|DM: It was easy to miss with how fast they died, but all of the devils you fought earlier were wrapped in a ton of gold chains.
Garrett: "You'd think devils, of all people, would know."
Chandrasekhar: "…or they're relying on its mystical properties for some reason. Or collecting it to try and make a new Seal?"
Garrett: "… that's not a terrible idea, if we could steal their ship."
Gerald: "Didn't it sort of lose its properties when the universe broke?"
Garrett: "Use its corpse as a different seal."
Zane rubs at his collar. "Its OK, Lucille. I won't let them make a seal out of you."
Chandrasekhar: "Gold is still gold."
Aleith|DM: So? Heading for the Palace, or for the airship first? What's the plan?
Gerald: "…Did it do something other than block teleportation and be a shitty metal and dumb people pay way too much money for?"
[OOC] Gerald: -and +that
Garrett: "More of a fan of platinum?"
Gerald: "It's a more practical metal, yes."
Phyllis: "Yet the Ancients still used it to seal the planes, even before Urim was in place."
Zane: "It's practical for seals because it doesnt naturally corrode like silver or iron."
Gerald: "Hmm. Fair enough."
Gerald: "At any rate, are we storming it or?"
Zane: "But in general yeah it's pretty worthless."
Zane looks at the airship. "It isnt small and it has a lot of guns and crew. I am not sure I want to pick a direct fight with it."
Garrett: "Eh… when we need to."
Phyllis: "It's a good conductor, isn't it?"
Phyllis: "Yes, I'm still on the metallurgy thing."
Chandrasekhar: "Maybe demons just like being flashy."
Zane shrugs. "That I don't know. Not a lot of technical courses in my curriculum."
Garrett: "We still need to get to… Clover, was it?"
Garrett: "Oh o wait we -are- here."
Garrett: "Well…"
Garrett‘ turns to Rock. "Anyone in particular we need to pick up, or…"
Rock: "As many as you can!"
Garrett` cracks his knuckles.
Garrett: "So, here’s what I'm thinking."
Zane: "Oooookay."
Zane looks at the ship. At the burning city.
Garrett‘ shakes his head.
Zane: "We are going to get fucking mobbed."
Garrett: "No no no, we’re playing this one subtly."
Phyllis: "Boarding party?"
Zane: "No I mean, as soon as that population finds out there is a method of egress every single damned one of them is going to want to hitch a ride. And I am almost positive that we do not have anywhere near enough room for that."
Zane: "We are gonna get mobbed."
Phyllis: "Ahem."
Garrett: "The devils are still looting the city and area. We jump a group of them while they're grounded, commendeer their smaller cargo ship, and fly on up towards the big one."
Phyllis taps her ritual book.
Garrett: "Then… do what we do best and raise hell. Bring hell down. But not on the people. You get me."
Zane ponders. Looks at the gold ship. "Bring hell down…"
Zane: "We could fit a bunch more people on that thing, its true."
Phyllis: "And if we have time for Planar Portal to take even more excess capacity home, that's an option. I hope."
Garrett‘ nods.
Garrett: "We’ll have to gauge it as we go."
Ernst shrugs. "I can always store them in my planar seed and let them out later."
Garrett: "We may need some sort of illusion or smokescreen if the big ship is going to expect hordes of devils hanging off of it much like the ones we just fought, but…" He casually nods to Phyllis. "I figure we have that covered, in some way."
Phyllis: "Maybe not at that scale. Hm."
Garrett: "Just needs to last long enough to get us inside the firing arc of their cannons and hopefully into a…" he waves a hand '-cargo bay or airdock or however they're connecting with the main ship. "
Garrett: "Or we could hastily make Devil skinsuits, but I'm pretty sure they smell even worse on the inside."
Gerald: "That would almost certainly take longer than stealing a ship."
Garrett: "Thoughts, objections, proposals?"
Aleith|DM: The cargo thopters don't seem to be the same as the windskiffs, more like cargo hauler constructs with propellers that carry them up. You haven't really seen any more windskiffs since the first one.
Zane: "We could hide ourselves in a crate and get hauled in."
Chandrasekhar: "Would that I could extend my invisibility."
Zane: "Shit, with Phyllis or Ernst we could put one of them in a box and the rest of us hide in some cross-dimensional hideyhole."
Garrett: "We -do- have a number of those."
Garrett: "The web is harmless enough, right?"
Zane: "Hm. I… Hmmm. I don't know, actually. I don't *think* there's anything lurking in it, but I also have never actually gone looking."
Garrett: "Rock came out of it no worse for wear." He turns to Rock. "Remember anything about your time in there?"
Rock: "Nah. One minute I was in the tunnel and fell asleep, next I know you were pulling me out of it."
Garrett: "There you have it. Five of us in the web, a sixth sneaks into a cargo box, lets everyone out once the ride's done."
Phyllis: "We just need to worry about someone else pulling them out of the web. I don't think ours is the only one."
Zane: "I guess thats you or me on sneaking duty, all things considered."
Garrett: "They'd need to know we were in there. To which…"
Garrett: "Well."
Garrett: "We'd have some severe problems then."
Garrett: "Because it'd mean that someone within earshot of this plan a'int on our side."
Gerald: "Not for very long."
Zane thinks. "That may be our best bet."
Gerald‘ nods.
Phyllis: "I’m on board with the plan. Is Zane the best person to be the man on the inside and carry us around, given his ability to blend in?"
Gerald: "Probably."
Garrett‘ nods. "That’s my thinking, too."
Zane looks the devils over. "Hmm. Hm. Tricky. But not impossible."
Zane: "Give me fifteen minutes. That halo is going to be a bitch though."
Garrett‘ slips off his Shadow Band and hands it to Zane. [Shadows leak from this ring to fill the space around you. When needed, you can call upon the ring to fully cover yourself in obscuring shadows.] [Equip: Gain Partial Concealment.] [Daily - Gain total concealment UEoNT, but since we hit a milestone, UEoEncounter, which is 5 minutes in this context isn’t it?]
Garrett: "Convince your magic hat that the halo is just… a really, really, really, really, really fancy hat?"
Zane: "Thats my plan."
Zane: "Let me see what I can work with." And he vanishes belowdecks.
Garrett‘ nods. "Rock, you coming along?"
Zane rolled 1d20+28 and got 9 ( Total: 37.0 )
Rock: "I’ll stay with the ship. Once you hit the devils' ship, should we hold ground, or head for the palace?"
Garrett: "Considering we're about to smoke out a hornet's nest with a breath full of feyweed- so to speak-, just sort of wait until you see what the rest of the army is going to do. If it seems like they start attacking the main ship in an effort to down it and have it take us with the wreck, give us some dogfighting support."
Garrett: "If they just generally peel off the city and head back up though, go for the palace."
Rock: "Will do, Your Majesty!" He snaps a sloppy salute.
Garrett‘ salutes back before turning to the crew. "Assemebled crew, you’ve got another ten minutes before we move, and then do your best to hold strong! And if gold rains from the sky, try not to grab it, it'll probably be molten," he says, with half a chuckle.
Zane re-emerges in fifteen minutes, sure enough. Wrapped in gold chains and with a burning crescent held up by very thin wire. "God I hope I dont have to fight in this crap."
Gerald: "Pretend it's a garrote."
Zane: "Now I *really* dont want it around my neck. Thanks, Garrett."
Gerald: "Haha."
Garrett: "Hah! Good job."
Garrett: "Okay everyone, if you have to use the restroom, do it before getting inside."
Gerald‘ is ready for infiltration.
Garrett: "We’re in your hands, Zane, good hunting," he says, before slipping into the web.
Phyllis gives Zane a nod before stepping into the web.
Zane grins. "No pressure. See you all soon."
Aleith|DM: It's alright. Once they enter the web, they're basically in stasis for up to a month.
Zane fades into semi-obscurity and moves into the crowd of devils, trying to unobtrusively get on the cargo fliers and up to the ship.
Aleith|DM: It's easy for you to blend in, between the disguise and the constant shadows obscuring you.
Zane looks for an out of the way corner of the ship to unload his comrades.
Aleith|DM: It doesn't take too long for you to find one shielded by the remains of the buildings around it from others' view.
Aleith|DM: Once you get aboard…
Aleith|DM: Frankly, the view is amazing.
Aleith|DM: Inside the cargo gold has to be enough gold to fund more epic level items….
[OOC] Aleith|DM: *cargo hold
Gerald‘ .oO( What do they even need all this gold for… )
Zane: "Sweet tiny gods…"
Aleith|DM: There’s definitely space to do it in here, even still.
Aleith|DM: But you can find a safer spot at the back of the ship.
Aleith|DM: There's quite a number of devils aboard the ship, but it doesn't seem to be the full complement, considering the amount that are on the ground.
Zane is all about that. It puts them closer to the pilot conn too, probably. He ducks back into the alcove and starts helping people out of the web. "OK. This is going to be… tricky, but possible."
Garrett‘ . o O (That’s all the chance we need.)
Gerald‘ .oO(Huh, no time gap. That’s interesting.)
Garrett‘ . o O (We’ll keep it quiet for as long as possible… but yeah get ready for a slugfest.)
Zane .oO(There's a LOT of throats to be cut, I can't really do my usual silent removal. Sorry.)
Aleith|DM: There's a legionnaire company like before. Three horned devils with their golden spiked chains. Five groups of five legionnaires each, called Elite Stars by the Golden Legion.
Gerald‘ glances at Garret, glances at his arsenal (as opposed to The Arsenal).
Garrett` . o O (Eh, we’re in this together!)
Zane passes Garrett his ring back.
Garrett‘ slips the ring back on.
Aleith|DM: And they appear to be lead by a beautiful, statuesque woman, who’s blonde hair is woven with golden chains that trail from piercing in her cheeks and in the scales of her bare skin. She wears a long black captain's coat that hangs seductively open, leaving her shoulders uncovered, threatening at any moment to fall free from her perfectly-curved figure. Strands of barbed gold thread in and out of the fabric and wrap around her arms and legs.
Zane .oO(Garrett NO.)
Garrett‘ sighs. . o O (Okay but we -are- commissioning this event in a tapestry.)
Gerald` .oO(Whatever floats your boat.)
Chandrasekhar HEROICALLY does not laugh.
Garrett` . o O (Unlike the Coaltongue, I know what floats my-…. you know what, nevermind. Let’s just… let's. Let's kill them.)
Garrett` draws his daggers and slowly advances.
