  4. Eclipse has connected.
  5. DNA:    Okay, my bookkeeping is up to date.
  6. Avara:  done
  7.         Alsine Kolstad:         updated~
  8. Kaorin Sakura:  I forgot what happened last. It's been a while.
  9. Avara:  likewise.
  10. Avara:  but that's not nearly as surprising.
  11.         Alsine Kolstad:         We ran into an ecounter on the way to cerulean
  12. DNA:    We ran into a multitude of tiny bees on the way to ceru-
  13. DNA:    ...impressive.
  14.         Alsine Kolstad:         we paused because we weren't ready to do a battle that late at night
  15. Kaorin Sakura:  Okay, today is session 62...
  16. Kaorin Sakura:  Okay so:
  17. Kaorin Sakura:  You guys are in the right spot on the world map.
  18. Kaorin Sakura:  Let me set up the battlefield....
  19. Avara:  right, going to cerulean for supply purposes iirc.
  20. Avara:  and storage
  21. Alsine Kolstad:         indeed
  22. Kaorin Sakura:  Please place your tokens between....
  23. Kaorin Sakura:  Q62 and T68
  24. Avara:  *pokes loading screen*
  25. Kaorin Sakura:  Oh wow. Yeah. I forgot to do your guys Character Tendencies.
  26. Chloe:  huh?
  27. Chloe:  oh, yeah
  28. Avara:  yup
  29. Chloe:  completely slipped my mind too
  30. Avara:  was too busy working on bc stuff for the first time in forever to remember
  31. DNA:    That black square?
  32. Avara:  yus
  33. Saturn Rosewell must wait 26.156 seconds before it may move again!
  34. Saturn Rosewell must wait 0.296 seconds before it may move again!
  35.         Chronicler:     Let me know when you all are ready.
  36.         Chronicler:     If anyone in the know wishes, they can recap. Then, I will re-do the description.
  37. DNA:    I think I'm okay, yeah
  38. Chloe:  I am ready. I can't remember the exact encounter ahead of us, but I know our motivation
  39. Avara:  isn't our motivation here "don't die"?
  40. Avara:  ready for descriptor destructor
  41.         Chronicler:     Oh? No recap? Okay.
  42.         Chronicler:     The creatures flit about in the snow, swarming around a central mound of snow. They move defensively, almost like a Combee around a hive.
  43. Upon closer look...
  44. The minuscule creatures flits about on wings that beat like a hummingbird’s. Its tiny face vaguely resembles a human’s, and its tail ends in a sharp stinger.
  45. Chronicler: (( And now for my d100 roll. ))
  46.         Chronicler:     You then notice, just barely, rising from the snow in the northeast a huge monstrous bugapede. /lazywithdescriptions.
  47.         Monstrous Bugapede:     Handout (click this)
  48. Avara:  something tells me we want to go around.
  49.         Saturn Rosewell:        "...eep." She was barely audible.
  50.         Chloe Blanchett:        "Ew... The little ones are cute though. It looks like they're protecting a hive."
  51.         Saturn Rosewell:        "Well...we could either help them and fight the giant insect, while being targets ourselves...or we could just...go around quietly?"
  52.         Chloe Blanchett:        percpeptifying what kind of activities the bugs are up to!
  53.         Monstrous Bugapede:     Monstrous Bugapede considers its options...
  54. The Monstrous Bugapede looks about carefully. An obvious dislike of the snow and the cold but hunger plastered upon its face
  55. Avara:  i almost tried to pokedex it. then i remembered we don't get those.
  56. Monstrous Bugapede: (( By bugs you mean the Catkwoders? ))
  57.         Chloe Blanchett:        yes
  58. Monstrous Bugapede: (( You could BUILD ONE ))
  59. Avara:  not right this instant. and probably not jen herself. i don't think bardic lets you roll Knowledge for crafting
  60. Monstrous Bugapede: (( You cannot knowledge crafting, no. ))
  61.         Chloe Blanchett:        "They're watching us. I don't think they'll attack unless we threaten them. They're doing the same to the bigbug."
  62.         Saturn Rosewell:        "All right, so at least we know they won't hit us. That's good. But what do we actually do?"
  63.         Chloe Blanchett:        "I don't think they're natural, so I don't think trying to help will win us any favors..."
  64.         Jennifer Attaway 1:     "Are we sure they're guarding a hive, if they're not natural?"
  65.         Chloe Blanchett:        "I have no idea, I just saw bugs and a mound, it's what came to mind..." Chloe looks back at the larger bugapede, making sure it isn't making any sudden movements either.
  66. Jennifer Attaway 1: (( somewhere on this map, there's another jen token ))
  67. Jennifer Attaway 1: (( found, deleted ))
  68. Monstrous Bugapede: (( o.o ))
  69. Avara:  ?
  70. Avara:  i don't remember if jen *knows* about saturn's life-sensing power
  71. Avara:  but saturn could life-sense at the "hive"
  72.         Saturn Rosewell:        Oh, right. I should do that:
  73.         Chloe Blanchett:        "We need shelter for the evening soon. I thought if we could help them, they might let us stay in...wherever. If it is a hive. Or even just a dome."
  74.         Saturn Rosewell:        "Somehow I feel like taking our chances elsewhere might be a better idea..."
  75.         Jennifer Attaway:       "Let's go ahead and do that, then. I don't really feel like getting into this fight."
  76. Monstrous Bugapede whispers: Yes. You can sense life aura within them. Though it is quite similar to voltorb or magnemite.
  77.         Saturn Rosewell:        "They're alive, but kinda like the same way that a Magnemite is alive..."
  78.         Saturn Rosewell:        "So I guess they're...like electrical objects?"
  79.         Chloe Blanchett:        "Well. those are alive." Chloe blinked.
  80.         Chloe Blanchett:        "But I like moving on. Lets keep going for now."
  81. Avara:  everyone gets: +1 Selfish tendency.
  82.         Chloe Blanchett:        Chloe begins to strafe to the east, hoping no to alarm anything as she walked.
  83. * Saturn Rosewell moves as silent as the stones.
  84. Avara:  does the current terrain count as Ice or Deep Snow?
  85. Avara:  if so, those using snow boots: you have -1 overland, but it's not Rough. so yeah.
  86.         Monstrous Bugapede:     Monstrous Bugapede watches your group carefully, moving opposite of you.
  87.         Chronicler:     Counts as Deep Snow.
  88. Avara:  figured.
  89. * Saturn Rosewell is not bothered; she basically moves over it.
  90.         The Star Dazzler:       The Star Dazzler moves effortlessly through the snow.
  91.         Chloe Blanchett:        "Hello little... bugs? Can you speak human Kantese?"
  92.         Chloe Blanchett:        Chloe called out to the smaller bugs, making sure they weren't just blundering their way through a misunderstanding
  93. Avara:  adventurers in a nutshell.
  94.         Catkwoder 6:    The Catkwoder's merely stare at Chloe as she speaks but say nothing in return.
  95.         The Star Dazzler:       "Sssssoooo, just leavin', right?"
  96.         Jennifer Attaway:       "Seems that way."
  97.         Chloe Blanchett:        "It looks like everyone is just avoiding each other."
  98.         Jennifer Attaway:       "Mutually beneficial non-involvement?"
  99.         Saturn Rosewell:        "Maybe they're avoiding a fight as much as we are. Maybe the giant bug isn't a predator of these things."
  100.         Chloe Blanchett:        ((Reached the edge of the map, can we continue to go north east from here?))
  101.         Chronicler:     Yup!
  102.         Chronicler:     I assume you guys are continuing on northeast, correct?
  103. DNA:    yeat
  104. Avara:  yes
  105.         Chloe Blanchett:        mmhm!
  106. Avara:  sorry you ended up putting all of that together for a really awkward avoiding-each-other scene
  107.         Chronicler:     As you continue on, you see the sun rise.
  108. DNA:    I kinda feel bad too. I really really like that thing, but IC I can't justify going out of the way for one.
  109. DNA:    "In a few hours, the sun will rise!"
  110.         Chronicler:     As you get far enough away, explosions behind you in the area erupt. The crackling of metal and the crushing of bone can be heard in the distance.
  111.         Chronicler:     Looking back you can see the waves of a field effect come into existence and the snow in that area crunch downward and the tree's lean just slightly lower toward the ground.
  112. DNA:    Cool guys don't look at explosions.
  113.         Jennifer Attaway:       "... I think we made the right choice. That looks *very* painful."
  114. * Saturn Rosewell gulped.
  115.         Chronicler:     Within minutes the field effect vanishes and a rumbling beneath your feet echoes.
  116. Your journey continuing to the northeast, beyond that distance experience, is uneventful.
  117.         Chronicler:     You continue onward just after 1400 hours and...
  118.         Chronicler:     Come back to the road only to find a red head in a tight leather shirt and shorts (and naught else, noticeably) standing in the icy road punching the ground.
  119. DNA:    Maikoa is that you?
  120.         Chronicler:     She's standing almost a meter and a half deep into her own self-created creator as she continues, glancing up at you briefly before considering you no threat.
  121. DNA:    Self-created crater, right?
  122. Chronicler: (( Mini-crater. D: ))
  123.         Chloe Blanchett:        "Aren't you cold like that?" Chloe asked.
  124.         Strange Red Head:       Strange Red Head pauses and huffs before wiping a bit of sweat from her brow and looks over to Chloe, "Me?" Strange Red Head points to The Star Dazzler, "Your girlfriend there is butt-naked and you're asking if I'm cold?"
  125.         The Star Dazzler:       The Star Dazzler crosses her arms but says nothing. Denies nothing.
  126.         Strange Red Head:       Strange Red Head dusts herself off before cracking her knuckles, "Anythin' I can help you with, by the by? Or just cummin' to gawk at my shapely visage?"
  127.         Chloe Blanchett:        Chloe giggled, "You just seem to be making a striking impression."
  128. * Avara applauds the pun
  129.         The Star Dazzler:       The Star Dazzler glances to Chloe before returning her gaze to the lady, "Still haunted by nightmares and impulses to cover yourself in the blood of the innocent, Gloria?"
  130.         Chloe Blanchett:        "Eh? You know each other?"
  131.         Strange Red Head:       Strange Red Head glares at TSD and turns her head slightly, "I know you, lady?"
  132.         The Star Dazzler:       The Star Dazzler watches her for a moment but says nothing.
  133.         Strange Red Head:       "Well if you're one of those do-gooder types, you can try and stop me from soiling this ground with blood if you want to." Strange Red Head returns to thrusting her fists into the icy soil beneath her, "See if I care."
  134.         The Star Dazzler:       "Who're you going to hurt this time, Gloria?"
  135.         Strange Red Head:       Strange Red Head paused just for a moment as the name 'Gloria' was spoke. But just for a moment.
  136.         Strange Red Head:       "Listen. I dunno who this Glory-gal is but it ain't this beauty you're lookin' at." Strange Red Head grunts as she strikes the ground harder.
  137.         Saturn Rosewell:        "...When did you two meet before?" Saturn's question was aimed at the Star Dazzler.
  138.         Saturn Rosewell:        Intuition to see if the strange red head is telling the truth, at least, 6d6+2 .
  139.         The Star Dazzler:       The Star Dazzler watches the red-head for a moment and turns to Saturn, "Gloria is my arch-nemesis from Saffron." The Star Dazzler sighs heavily, "And my sister."
  140.         Strange Red Head:       Strange Red Head paused entirely at that line and stares at the ground.
  141.         Saturn Rosewell:        "...maybe I shouldn't have asked..."
  142. Strange Red Head whispers: You note something odd is going on. You can literally feel the truth pouring from Star Dazzler but you also can tell that the red-head is also telling the truth.
  143.         Chloe Blanchett:        "I thought you were acting strange, someone like you could only act that upset at someone you care about."
  144.         Strange Red Head:       "Look, I ain't your bloody sis', alright? You're confused. And naked. And oddly silver."
  145. You whisper to Kaorin Sakura: So Gloria has forgotten, or is suppressing it?
  146.         The Star Dazzler:       "My sister didn't know my true identify. But I'm not about to show my true form to someone I fought daily."
  147.         Strange Red Head:       Strange Red Head's eye twitched but she looked down at the dirt and began assaulting it again, "Whatever, lady. But you can rightly fuck-off now."
  148.         The Star Dazzler:       The Star Dazzler looked conflicted and turned to Saturn, "What should I do? I know she's just going to hurt someone, maybe herself and she's lying to me. Probably followed me when I got exiled from Saffron..."
  149.         Chloe Blanchett:        Chloe looked to Saturn, trying to see what she made of the situation.
  150.         Jennifer Attaway:       intuition to detect lies.
  151.         Saturn Rosewell:        "Hmmmmmmm..." Saturn looked like she was mulling it over. She didn't want to leave this alone, but...what to do?
  152. Avara:  did red recognize silver?
  153. The Star Dazzler whispers: You aren't sure which it is, if its either.
  154.         Chloe Blanchett:        "I don't know her at all, but maybe you shouldn't assume the worst. Especially if she's following you. If she does something, you can stop her. Until then...." Chloe was cut off by a loud yawn, "... we have been walking a long time haven't we."
  155.         Saturn Rosewell:        Intuition to detect Gloria's current emotions
  156.         Jennifer Attaway:       "As far as I can tell... she's not lying."
  157. The Star Dazzler: (( Do you have aura reader or something? ))
  158.         Saturn Rosewell:        No, I'm using the Intuition application to detect emotional state. Lemme get the text...
  159.         Saturn Rosewell:        (Might take a while.)
  160.         Saturn Rosewell:        Discerning Intent
  161. You can try and ascertain a natural ‘gut feeling’ about a social encounter, getting a feeling about someone’s behavior, intentions, truthfulness, hidden emotions, displeasure, or even whether or not a person is an imposter. Analyzing someone in this way requires an Intuition check with a DC of 12.
  162.         Saturn Rosewell:        Okay, not as specific as I thought it was, but that's what I'm going for.
  163. The Star Dazzler whispers: Your gut tells you that there is definitely something off about this encounter. You don't know enough about Gloria to be able to get a real bead on how she should behave or not but there's something definitely off about her. Definitely.
  164.         Saturn Rosewell:        "...Something's not right here...something's really not right."
  165.         Saturn Rosewell:        "I can't tell if she doesn't know or she doesn't remember, but there's something we aren't aware of."
  166.         Strange Red Head:       Strange Red Head's fist suddenly crunches sickeningly into the ground and she smiles incredibly slowly.
  167. You whisper to Kaorin Sakura: Intuition to sense life in the area .
  168.         Strange Red Head:       Strange Red Head kneels down and begins digging furiously at the ground with her hands, sending ice, snow and soil everywhere.
  169.         Chloe Blanchett:        Chloe backs off slightly.
  170.         Chloe Blanchett:        "What's she doing Star?"
  171. Strange Red Head whispers: You sense a glimmer of life from Gloria. But none else with her. Nor under her.
  172.         The Star Dazzler:       The Star Dazzler watches with an eyebrow raised, "I'm not sure. Digging? Though poorly."
  173.         Alsine Kolstad:         Alsine lifts Chloe and flies up two meters. "Assume she's good at it. She looks confident.
  174.         Chloe Blanchett:        Chloe makes a mount check, making the burden of carrying her easier. 11
  175.         Strange Red Head:       Strange Red Head suddenly clears enough ground to pull something out of it. In a single swoop and pulls out a coffin and tosses it aside with one hand.
  176. It crashes into the ground heavily and the lid nearly opens.
  177.         The Star Dazzler:       The Star Dazzler drops her hands to her side and watches Gloria intently, "Okay. That's....new."
  178.         Saturn Rosewell:        "...I'm guessing she was looking for this?"
  179. You whisper to Kaorin Sakura: Perception 2d6+2 to notice if she's actually a shapeshifter disguise. Counter by rolling your Stealth.
  180. You whisper to Kaorin Sakura: Or, if it's a physical disguise, vs Guile.
  181.         Strange Red Head:       Strange Red Head turns to you all, "Still here? Morbin wankers..." Strange Red Head moves to the coffin and rips off the lid in two, revealing a skeleton in a red collared shirt, khaki pants and a white lab-coat. Strange Red Head inspects the corpse carefully.
  182. Strange Red Head whispers: You seem convinced she's not a shapeshifter. Or just a good one.
  183.         The Star Dazzler:       "This is graverobbing, isn't it? That's a coffin. This is a crime!"
  184.         Chloe Blanchett:        "We can't really leave after that."
  185.         Strange Red Head:       "In the middle of the road! Come off it, lady!"
  186.         Alsine Kolstad:         Alsine suspects vampyres. Is Strange Red Head one? Occult
  187.         Strange Red Head:       Strange Red Head begins undressing the skeleton at the pants, "Gotta be here..."
  188.         The Star Dazzler:       The Star Dazzler winces at that, "Oh that's it!" The Star Dazzler approaches the strange red head, "Stop right there criminal scum! Your days of graverobbing are at an end!"
  189.         Strange Red Head:       "Sure thing, hot pants. Right after I stick my hand in his pelvis."
  190. The Star Dazzler: (( So uhh, TSD is gonna initiate combat. You guys cool with this or gonna stop her? ))
  191. * Jennifer Attaway puts a hand on Star's shoulder.
  192.         Jennifer Attaway:       "Something is going on here. We shouldn't act without more information."
  193.         Alsine Kolstad:         "What are you?" Alsine asked the woman. Her eyes narrowed. "Not human, clearly."
  194.         Jennifer Attaway:       "Besides... if anything, this'd allow for the grave to be moved to a marked location, rather than being tread upon any time someone comes through here."
  195.         Saturn Rosewell:        "...Information we aren't going to get willingly, it sounds like."
  196. * Saturn Rosewell shuddered at Alsine's comment, though her facial expression didn't change.
  197. * Jennifer Attaway looks to Red. "Would you mind taking a moment to explain the situation and answer questions, so that things don't devolve into fisticuffs? We're all very tired, and have been walking a long time trying to reach town."
  198.         Strange Red Head:       Strange Red Head pulls the pants off the hips of the skeleton and licks her lips, "What? Of course I'm a human." Strange Red Head glances to TSD, "Well, I suppose as much as she is anyway. Gots me some muscles I do..." Strange Red Head sticks her hands literally through the pelvic bone with a loud crack.
  199. Strange Red Head whispers: That was a lie. You felt that lie. Like heat from a fire.
  200.         Saturn Rosewell:        "...Liar."
  201.         Chloe Blanchett:        Chloe winces, wanted to stick to Star's plan more and more as things went on.
  202.         Saturn Rosewell:        "Now I know my friend is correct. What are you?"
  203.         Strange Red Head:       "Well, if I gotta say, and I ain't no liar, I'm looking for a....a map o'sorts." Strange Red Head gently pulls two cylinder devices from the shatter pelvic bone of the corpse. Shaped almost like large batteries Strange Red Head quickly stuffs them under her shirt into her cleavage, "I can put this thing back if it'll make you guys feel better."
  204. Strange Red Head whispers: The words left her lips like venom. Obvious poisonous sarcasm.
  205.         Saturn Rosewell:        "A map...of sorts. A map to what."
  206. You whisper to Kaorin Sakura: So she's actually like Poison-type, or is that just you being poetic?
  207. Strange Red Head whispers: Poetic.
  208.         Strange Red Head:       Strange Red Head positioned herself so the coffin is between her and your group, "Oh, y'know the usual. Untold treasure, incredible power, riches beyond imagine and the age-old, glorious none-of-your-damn-business."
  209.         The Star Dazzler:       The Star Dazzler clenched her hands into fists as she watched the strange red head move and speak.
  210.         Jennifer Attaway:       "..." Jen thinks about it for a bit. And takes her hand off of Dazzler's shoulder.
  211.         Jennifer Attaway:       "Patience ran out."
  212. DNA:    Checking something...
  213.         Chloe Blanchett:        "Do you know of a place to rest nearby? We can help you bury the coffin if you want to join us."
  214.         Alsine Kolstad:         "... read the mood better, Master."
  215. You whisper to Kaorin Sakura: Saturn targets the strange woman immediately with the move Telekinesis
  216. You whisper to Kaorin Sakura: The target becomes Lifted. While under this effect, the target gains the Levitate Ability, loses all movement capabilities except for Levitate, is Slowed, and loses its Evasion bonuses against attacks. It may attempt to remove these effects by spending a Shift Action and rolling 1D20; on 16+, the target is no longer Lifted.
  217.         Strange Red Head:       "Oh, sure. There's a good ol'-how about no? You don't seem the friendly sort. I worry about my well-being. A lone girl in a group o'bandits, yeah?" Strange Red Head steps back a few paces from the coffin, "How's about youuuuuuuuuuuuuu---" Strange Red Head suddenly lifts 4-meters into the air. Obvious psychic aura eminating from Saturn as she does.
  218.         The Star Dazzler:       "I can punch her now?"
  219.         Saturn Rosewell:        "...Drop it."
  220.         Saturn Rosewell:        (Comment directed at the redhead)
  221.         Jennifer Attaway:       "Punch her out of the air, please."
  222.         Strange Red Head:       "Tch, bandits alright. Just gonna thief me goods, right?" Strange Red Head points at Saturn, "Put me down or so help me I'll start firin' my lasers."
  223.         Saturn Rosewell:        "...that's the best threat you could come up with?"
  224.         Jennifer Attaway:       "... Oh, Saturn has her."
  225.         Strange Red Head:       10
  226. * Jennifer Attaway ensures that she's at least 7 meters away from Red.
  227.         Chloe Blanchett:        "What are we doing..." Chloe groaned.
  228.         Strange Red Head:       Strange Red Head wiggles in the air trying to writhe free.
  229.         Saturn Rosewell:        "Talk. Explain yourself now."
  230.         Strange Red Head:       "Tch, like hell I will to a bunch of crooks!" Strange Red Head writhes in the air, "Savages! Crooks! Bandits!" Strange Red Head screams insults as she squirms.
  231.         Strange Red Head:       6
  232.         Saturn Rosewell:        "You can't claim ignorance anymore, not while one of our number knows you and we all just saw you rob a grave specifically looking for those canisters."
  233.         Chloe Blanchett:        "You're the one who robbed from a grave, and we haven't done anything yet."
  234.         Jennifer Attaway:       "This is getting annoying..."
  235.         Saturn Rosewell:        "...Can someone search her, please? I get the feeling she may have something else dangerous on her person."
  236. * Jennifer Attaway gestures to Dazzler, the one with experience dealing with criminals.
  237.         The Star Dazzler:       The Star Dazzler looks up at the redhead, "Well I can't fly but..." The Star Dazzler jumps up into the air and tries to grapple the redhead! 7 vs. DEF Eva!
  238.         Saturn Rosewell:        Then to the redhead, "And can you please just calm down? We don't need to go around stealing people's stuff. That would be foolish."
  239. DNA:    (Gloria is technically about at the ground level - just suspended in midair)
  240.         The Star Dazzler:       The Star Dazzler grabs hold of the Strange Red Head and hangs from her in the air attempting to solidify a hold.
  241. The Star Dazzler: (( 4-meters up. ))
  242. The Star Dazzler: (( Oh, 2-meters. ))
  243. DNA:    2m max up, yes
  244.         Strange Red Head:       Strange Red Head grunts as she's grappled but tries to squirm out.
  245.         Strange Red Head:       Strange Red Head grunts - unable to break free. 12
  246.         Strange Red Head:       Strange Red Head remains held in place by the telekinesis.
  247.         The Star Dazzler:       The Star Dazzler suddenly pins the strange red head to the ground with a thud, holding her against the ground even against the telekinesis.
  248.         Strange Red Head:       Strange Red Head fails to slip out of the hold but continues to try to break the telekinesis. 6
  249.         The Star Dazzler:       "Hng, alright. I got her down. Someone rip her jacket off or....something!"
  250. DNA:    where's Val, dammit
  251.         Strange Red Head:       "You're going to strip me now?!" Strange Red Head grunts, "You leave my clothes alone!"
  252.         Jennifer Attaway:       "... way to make us sound like rapists," Jen snarks. She walks over to try and remove said jacket, though with less violence than suggested.
  253. Jennifer Attaway: (( relevant check? ))
  254. The Star Dazzler: (( Its body slot. So you can't just pull it off. You can attempt to sunder it though. ))
  255.         Jennifer Attaway:       ((ah.))
  256.         Chloe Blanchett:        "Can't you just search it without ripping it..?"
  257.         The Star Dazzler:       "Alright, that's enough of that." The Star Dazzler thrusts her forearm onto the mouth of the strange red head, preventing her from speaking entirely while pinned.
  258.         Jennifer Attaway:       ((just need to open it and check pockets, stuff like that))
  259. The Star Dazzler: (( I'm aware. But she's conscious despite being pinned and won't make that easy. ))
  260.         Chloe Blanchett:        "Let me try...
  261. The Star Dazzler: (( You'll need to make her unconscious or break the thing off. ))
  262.         Chloe Blanchett:        ((Ah. So not easy means impossible))
  263. The Star Dazzler: (( If it were a weapon or bag, I'd say you could disarm it. But its literally her jacket. That'd be like trying to disarm someone's armour. You can't do that. ))
  264.         Chloe Blanchett:        ((chloe does not say let me try then))
  265. Jennifer Attaway: (( can i check pockets, inner pockets, etc without sundering with a perception check? ))
  266. Jennifer Attaway: (( star is kinda pinning her in place ))
  267. The Star Dazzler: (( Not while she's conscious. ))
  268. The Star Dazzler: (( Bags, hand-items, necklaces, bracelets, sure. ))
  269.         Jennifer Attaway:       "... Star, if you're going to gag her, maybe just knock her out?"
  270. The Star Dazzler: (( Body slot items or the pockets of said items no. ))
  271.         Chloe Blanchett:        Chloe sighed.
  272.         Chloe Blanchett:        "It's not like we haven't robbed our fair share of coffins and tombs. I really don't know why we're doing this..."
  273.         The Star Dazzler:       "Sure thing." The Star Dazzler begins applying force with her holds.
  274.         Chloe Blanchett:        "I am literally holding a bow I got from a coffin."
  275.         Jennifer Attaway:       "Trying to find that out. She hasn't been willing to answer anything, and cut me off any time I tried to get talks going."
  276.         Saturn Rosewell:        "...why does everyone we run into hate us...?"
  277. Jennifer Attaway: (( was about to roll charm a couple times, but got cut off ))
  278.         Saturn Rosewell:        "...I feel I could have phrased that better."
  279.         Chloe Blanchett:        "Because we're always there to fight them."
  280.         Strange Red Head:       Strange Red Head suddenly breaks free from the telekinesis but still remains pinned.
  281.         The Star Dazzler:       The Star Dazzler holds her down, choking her, "Shh, shh, shh. Just go to sleep. That's all."
  282.         Chloe Blanchett:        "... fine.... but we're staying with her to make sure she's safe until she wakes up again."
  283.         Jennifer Attaway:       "That was planned, yes."
  284.         The Star Dazzler:       "I planned to put her somewhere safe not to sit around until she can attack us...but if you think that's logical..."
  285.         The Star Dazzler:       The injury lowered the Defense stat!
  286.         Jennifer Attaway:       "That works too. Just... something. Making sure she doesn't die."
  287.         Strange Red Head:       Strange Red Head acquires a bruise on her neck fromt he strangling.
  288.         The Star Dazzler:       "Kinda sorta meant that! Just sleep already!"
  289. * Jennifer Attaway looks at Red. "If you signal surrender, we can stop this idiocy and talk like civilized people."
  290.         Chloe Blanchett:        "We can figure it out. Just keep on her for now, or else it'll be undo pain."
  291.         Alsine Kolstad:         "She'll simply attack if we let her out now. That is not an option Miss Jen. We have her cornered, she does not know if she'll ever wake up once the lights go out."
  292.         Strange Red Head:       Strange Red Head is currently being strangled, unallowed to speak and desperately trying to fight off a silver blond haired super woman.
  293.         Saturn Rosewell:        "...We're not going to leave her to die out here."
  294. Avara:  there are... y'know, arm gestures that could be used to signal surrender.
  295. Avara:  and jen meant stopping the whole strangling her thing
  296.         Alsine Kolstad:         "We're not, Master Chloe spoke on this. But she does not know that. She does not trust that."
  297. Chloe:  her arms are being used to stop herself from getting choked
  298. Avara:  *sigh*
  299. Avara:  whateverjustkeepgoing
  300.         Strange Red Head:       The injury lowered the Speed stat!
  301.         Strange Red Head:       Strange Red Head falls unconscious underneath The Star Dazzler and goes limp.
  302.         The Star Dazzler:       The Star Dazzler pauses for a moment to ensure she isn't feigning before standing up and dusts her form off, "Phew. There. That was...kinda...huh."
  303.         Jennifer Attaway:       "Alright. Someone apply first aid before we start searching for anything."
  304. Avara:  who here has edu medicine?
  305. DNA:    Val's Forretress
  306. Avara:  ...
  307. Avara:  anyone HERE?
  308. DNA:    Finch has 2d6+4 which is the next best thing
  309.         Chloe Blanchett:        Chloe gets down and searches over Strange Red Head as a shift action. 30
  310. DNA:    ...or...
  311. DNA:    Wait, what would I be applying first aid for?
  312.         Strange Red Head:       Strange Red Head is stabilized but still in the negatives.
  313.         Chloe Blanchett:        stop bleed, if it was happening.
  314.         Chronicler:     Unconscious through damage. She was bleeding out.
  315.         Chronicler:     Internal bleeding if you couldn't see it.
  316.         Chloe Blanchett:        that was a perception check
  317. Chronicler: (( Ohhhhh. ))
  318. Chronicler: (( Sorry ))
  319. Avara:  potion will stop bleeding, right?
  320.         Sacrama:        Medicine 14 if relevant
  321.         Chronicler:     Any healing will.
  322. Avara:  does sacrama's check work? if not, i'll use a pot
  323.         Chloe Blanchett:        Chloe can just do in, like, two seconds so she just got it out of the way while the healing issue was discussed.
  324. DNA:    You will use a pair o-*shot*
  325. Avara:  healing boobs would be wonderful. no.
  326.         Chronicler:     Sacrama stabilizes the redhead.
  327. Avara:  a potion.
  328.         Jennifer Attaway:       "So... Saturn. You have psychic powers now?"
  329.         Chloe Blanchett:        "Nothing on her. Just food, potions and the batteries she took. Still warm from her boobs."
  330.         Jennifer Attaway:       "Any chance we can find out what she is without waking her up to ask again?"
  331.         Chloe Blanchett:        "She said she was the same as Star. And Star said they were siblings."
  332.         The Star Dazzler:       "Hey now. I'm a Human."
  333.         The Star Dazzler:       "With transformation powers to become this dazzling lady of incredible prowess."
  334.         Saturn Rosewell:        "Y...Yeah...a little..."
  335.         Jennifer Attaway:       "None of my abilities are all that good on unconscious people, and the open hostility means most of what I can do'll be hard to work with even if she's conscious, so I'd like to figure this all out before she wakes. Anyone who has any ideas, go ahead and try something."
  336.         Saturn Rosewell:        "...I can't read minds or anything - just push things around."
  337.         The Star Dazzler:       "I wasn't worried. I'm impervious to mindbending."
  338.         The Star Dazzler:       "And you're my friends. I trust you." The Star Dazzler giggled, happy and calm, "Though if I began to find any of you ladies sexually appealing I just might begin to question mindbending..."
  339.         Chloe Blanchett:        "...eh?" Chloe blushed.
  340.         The Star Dazzler:       "I'm bad at jokes."
  341.         Alsine Kolstad:         Alsine smiled.
  342.         Alsine Kolstad:         "You'd fall for me first."
  343.         Alsine Kolstad:         Alsine folded her arms under her bossom.
  344.         Saturn Rosewell:        "Iiiiii'm a little too young to be part of this conversation..."
  345. Eclipse:        It's 'bosom;
  346.         Jennifer Attaway:       Knowledge check, Perception check, looking over red's body for any signs, symptoms, etc of what she might actually be.
  347. Eclipse:        That's supposed to be a quote, not a semicolon.
  348.         Alsine Kolstad:         (aw)
  349.         Jennifer Attaway:       "Something's off about her bone structure, but past that she seems normal enough... aside the obvious immunity or resistance to cold. She's actually a little hotter than normal."
  350.         Jennifer Attaway:       "Bones might be cybernetics. They're metallic."
  351.         Saturn Rosewell:        "...Hotter than normal? Like she has a thermal heat source?"
  352.         Jennifer Attaway:       "Maybe. A little hotter than the average female her size and shape."
  353.         Saturn Rosewell:        "Inbee? Do you have any idea why that is?"
  354.         The Star Dazzler:       "Uh, okay that's weird. My sister was super-strong and a great boxer. But metal bones she didn't have." The Star Dazzler flexes her fingers, "I've punched her enough to know the feeling of real bone crunching."
  355.         The Star Dazzler:       The Star Dazzler thought for a moment, "Well, I'm not exactly cold out here. And I haven't had the opportunity to see Gloria outside the city so...I just assumed it was hereditary."
  356.         Chloe Blanchett:        "So a lot of things not adding up? Maybe this really isn't her."
  357.         Saturn Rosewell:        "Maybe not...which ...is kinda what I thought. But if it's not her, who is it?"
  358.         Chloe Blanchett:        "Does anyone have a bandage for her? We should at least help that much."
  359. DNA:    I know, but not IC.
  360.         The Star Dazzler:       The Star Dazzler rubs her chin, "Looks and sounds exactly like her though. Down to the provocative attire and her love of stinky leather."
  361.         Alsine Kolstad:         "Doesn't seem to be an issue of shapeshifting." Alsine examined more closely. Recalling what she knew about unconciousness and shapeshifting as well as trying to identify any wornl magical items. Occult
  362.         Alsine Kolstad:         "Her outfit is glamoured, she has a bodysuit on. Her flesh is her own, she would have returned when she lost conciousness if she was a shapeshifter. At least, any ordinary shapeshifter."
  363.         The Star Dazzler:       The Star Dazzler applies a bandage to the redhead.
  364.         Saturn Rosewell:        "Then she's probably no ordinary shapeshifter. It probably has to do with the metal bones..."
  365.         Alsine Kolstad:         "Perhaps. Or she is who we assume she is."
  366.         Saturn Rosewell:        "And we assume she's...what, exactly?"
  367.         The Star Dazzler:       "So, what do we do with her now? And we're keeping the cylinders, right? Figure out what it is?"
  368.         Chloe Blanchett:        "Wouldn't that make us graverobbers?"
  369.         Chloe Blanchett:        "We watched her dig it up, we let her collect it. We can't just take it and pretend like we didn't know where it came from."
  370.         Saturn Rosewell:        "Can we figure out what they are right now?"
  371.         Chloe Blanchett:        "I... I'm not saying it's anyone's fault. I know you wanted to stop her from the start Star."
  372.         The Star Dazzler:       "So we're just gonna give it back? Pretend like this never happened?"
  373.         Chloe Blanchett:        "They look like batteries of some kind..." Technology.
  374.         Chloe Blanchett:        identifying what they are or what purpose they have
  375.         Jennifer Attaway:       Knowledge, same. had to deal with distractions.
  376.         Chloe Blanchett:        "Strange, the tech looks similar to the suits. I have no idea what they are or what they do. But... that's very suspicious."
  377.         Jennifer Attaway:       "Not sure exactly what they are, but they match up tech-wise with the suits those stranded people were wearing."
  378.         Chloe Blanchett:        "Does anyone else want to have a look?" Chloe held them out.
  379.         Jennifer Attaway:       "If we take them, she'll probably either try to track us down or rob another grave to get more."
  380.         Chloe Blanchett:        "If we take them we really will be bandits. If we want info, we need to get it now. Either we give these back or destroy them." A thought struck Chloe, "If she wakes up, we might be able to bargain for information with the suits we have! We might have a huge lead on whatever it is she's looking for!"
  381.         Saturn Rosewell:        Intuition on the stuff. It probably won't work but it's worth a try:
  382.         Alsine Kolstad:         "If she's looking for the city itself. Not just hidden technology."
  383.         Jennifer Attaway:       "We could probably afford to part with one without giving up our own leads, if we choose to look into it."
  384.         Jennifer Attaway:       "Someone more familiar with technology could go over the suits to see if there's a slot for these things?"
  385.         Finch:  "?"
  386.         Finch:  Tech Edu to analyze the batteries, 6d6+4:
  387. The Star Dazzler: (( No intuition won't work on the batteries. ))
  388.         Chloe Blanchett:        "I don't want to physically give her anything, not with how she was treating us. But if we have something she wants we might force her to work with us."
  389. The Star Dazzler whispers: They're definitely a power source of some kind. Meant to last quite a while but there seems to be more to what they can do than just power things. Something about the technology that links them with distorted time, disfigurement and information storage. You know you're on the right path but you're just short of breaking the code.
  390.         Jennifer Attaway:       "I want to spend as little time around her as possible, but..." she shrugs. "I'll let you handle talking with her, okay?"
  391. You whisper to Kaorin Sakura: What would make me no longer short of breaking the code?
  392.         Chloe Blanchett:        "I don't know what we want, unless something in these batteries reveal something really, really dangerous." Chloe looked at the unconcious woman.
  393.         Finch:  Finch is scrutinizing the batteries.
  394.         Alsine Kolstad:         "Taking your time. That is a good sign."
  395. The Star Dazzler whispers: You're not quite sure. You're a hair shor tand you can't figure out that last stretch.
  396.         Finch:  PokeKanto: "May I have a translator?"
  397. * Jennifer Attaway initiates translations for Finch.
  398.         Finch:  PokeKanto: "The batteries are a power source. The duration is very long but I cannot say how long. They also appear to have another purpose but I don't know what. Something about their technology has to do with distorting time, disfigurement, and information storage."
  399.         Finch:  PokeKanto: "There is a small piece of the puzzle I'm missing. I can't see what it is yet or how it all fits together."
  400.         Chloe Blanchett:        "Information would be good to learn..."
  401.         Jennifer Attaway:       "Could you take the same critical eye to the suits?"
  402.         Chloe Blanchett:        "Star Dazzler, are you any good with technology? Maybe Finch can help you look over it." (assisted check to see if we glean more information)
  403.         Finch:  PokeKanto: "The suits we found from before? With the 10000 time acceleration and all that?"
  404.         Jennifer Attaway:       "Yes."
  405.         Jennifer Attaway:       "See if these go with those, and so on."
  406.         Finch:  Finch gives those a look over too, comparing the new batteries to the bits of the suits he so thoroughly examined before. (Does that require another Tech Edu check, or do I know already?)
  407.         Chloe Blanchett:        "It's not a map though, not like she said. She might be trying to sell these to a power company. That's what I'd do if I were a grave robber. Of course, that kind of technology is good for the world."
  408.         Jennifer Attaway:       "She said 'a map of sorts', it could be metaphorical. Using these to find something, somewhere or someone else."
  409.         The Star Dazzler:       The Star Dazzler shrugs, "Uh, not unless it has a signal."
  410. The Star Dazzler: (( Yeah, it'd require another check. ))
  411.         Chloe Blanchett:        Chloe will try to assist!
  412.         Chloe Blanchett:        Not sure DC!
  413.         Finch:  Tech Edu 6d6+4 plus whatever bonus Chloe can give.
  414. Kaorin Sakura:  So, let's put this on hold.
  415. Kaorin Sakura:  Save here and what-not. I have to give Emi a bath. :/ She found nail polish.
  416. Avara:  'kay
  417. Avara:  *hugs kaorin*
  418. Kaorin Sakura:  I'm just gonna save this and let people read it when they get back to here.
  419.         Finch:  Sure thing.
  420. Kaorin Sakura:  I'll give XP and stuff out later. But you'll get it.
  421.         Finch:  I'll probably put it in the log so we don't forget.
  422.         Chloe Blanchett:        kay!
  423. Chloe is disconnected.
  424. Avara is disconnected.
  425. Eclipse is disconnected.
  426. You have disconnected.
  427. Kaorin Sakura:  TXP:  2
  428. Kaorin Sakura:  PKMN XP:  45
  429. DNA:    TL 19.7
  431. (Later I'm going to input the TXP and PXP for the evening, as well as whatever technobabble Finch did at the end.)
