  2. Kaorin Sakura has connected.
  3. Kaorin Sakura:  HI
  4. DNA:    Yo.
  5. Kaorin Sakura:  ...
  6. Kaorin Sakura:  Sssssssssso.
  7. Kaorin Sakura:  Solo adventure today?
  8. DNA:    I want to see how long it takes for them to catch on.
  9. Kaorin Sakura:  Well
  10. Kaorin Sakura:  If they don't show I have a solo adventure in mind.
  11. DNA:    oooohh~
  12. DNA:    Testing some macros; one moment...
  13.         Saturn Rosewell:        Saturn Rosewell lost 1 HP!
  14.         Saturn Rosewell:        Saturn Rosewell is healed for 1 HP!
  15.         Saturn Rosewell:        Saturn Rosewell spent 1 AP!
  16.         Saturn Rosewell:        Saturn Rosewell recovered 1 AP!
  17. DNA:    Awesome, so that works.
  18. Kaorin Sakura:  \o/
  19. DNA:    (I didn't look how some of my macros looked words-wise, so I tweaked them somewhat. I wasn't clever enough to do a X/Y AP remaining, though.)
  20. DNA:    (The functions were not disturbed, however, so everything works as usual.)
  21. Kaorin Sakura:  That's good.
  22. DNA:    I kept some of them the same even wording-wise, like Elevation - I couldn't think of a better phrase to use.
  23. DNA:    Also, I gave them all MOUSEOVER TEXT. \o/
  24. DNA:    Speaking of mouseover text, look at "Injury Roll" for yours.
  25. Kaorin Sakura:  The macros?
  26. DNA:    Yeah.
  27. Kaorin Sakura:  Oh, nice.
  28. DNA:    The mouseover is the same as the "How Nice?" macro. ...and that's not what that macro does.
  29. Kaorin Sakura:  Ah, in the tooltip.
  30. DNA:    Yes, that.
  31. Kaorin Sakura:  So, looks like everyone thinks X:30.
  32. * DNA snickers.
  33. DNA:    Who'll be the one to say that they're wrong? You or I?
  34. Kaorin Sakura:  You can. You use kinder wors.
  35. Kaorin Sakura:  Words*
  36. Kaorin Sakura:  Or something.
  37. Chloe has connected.
  38. DNA:    I, use kinder words than you? You quite sure of that?
  39. Kaorin Sakura:  Very.
  40. DNA:    There's a difference between simpler and kinder.
  41. Blondelle Champagne has connected.
  42. Kaorin Sakura:  Seems we're missing someone still.
  43. Blondelle Champagne:    Give Ava a message
  44. Kaorin Sakura:  I poked her.
  45. DNA:    Unsure if Avara will be needed; though Rochette does talk to Pokemon, she is unfit for combat at present. I'm not sure what that will portend.
  46. Kaorin Sakura:  I'll start in 5 min weather or not she'll respond.
  47. DNA:    *whether
  48. Kaorin Sakura:  Yes that.
  49. Kaorin Sakura:  Sorry, still flash flood warning.
  50. DNA:    Will that affect our game at all
  51. Chloe:  She did stay behind
  52. Blondelle Champagne:    true
  53. Kaorin Sakura:  Nothing. SO@
  54. DNA:    Ready!
  55. Kaorin Sakura:  ...With a ! not a @.
  56. Blondelle Champagne:    Ready!
  57. Kaorin Sakura:  ...I forgot what I said 'nothing'. :/
  58. Kaorin Sakura:  Just to make sure I have things in the right order.
  59. Kaorin Sakura:  Saturn, Chloe and Blondelle left behind Rochette at the stone elevator while they ventured into the corridor?
  60. DNA:    I recall Saturn volunteering to stay behind, though traded out for Rochette once she offered
  61. Chloe:  Rochette was the one we agreed to, due to injury.
  62. Kaorin Sakura:  I'll drop the last two descriptions for everyone's memory.
  63. Following the descent for several minutes you come to an enclosed room. It is circular and has stone walls, ceiling and floor. In the center is a suspended stoen platform, held by three large metal chains. The center of the stone platform is slightly more elevated than the rest.
  64. The bottom area is identical to the above area with a single exit, though the corridor is entirely man-made and has no algae.
  65. Chloe:  what did the shaft itself look like? There was a lot of scampering life, was there much room?
  66.         Blondelle Champagne:    Blondelle looks serious; she felt nervous but tried to give the appearance of someone in control of her emotions.
  67. Kaorin Sakura:  The shaft is as big as the initial rooms.
  68. Kaorin Sakura:  The space between the center disc and the outer walls are plentiful for movement. Roughly 2.5m.
  69. DNA:    So the room we're descending into is identical in shape to the room we came from above from?
  70. Kaorin Sakura:  Yes.
  71. Kaorin Sakura:  You haven't moved yet.
  72. DNA:    And a 5m diameter...hm.
  73. Kaorin Sakura:  That 'identical area' is where you currently area.
  74. Kaorin Sakura:  Are*
  75. Kaorin Sakura:  The center disc itself is a 5m diameter.
  76. Kaorin Sakura:  I just wanted to refresh everyone's memory before moving on.
  77.         Blondelle Champagne:    No problem.
  78.         Chloe:  Chloe looked around the room for anything hidden. False walls, hidden cavities or any movable objects made to blend in. She doesn't look to long and is more than willing to follow the group if prompted. 10 Perception
  79.         Blondelle Champagne:    Blondelle was glad they had some light, even if it was the tiniest bit of light.
  80.         Blondelle Champagne:    It made her feel a bit safer.
  81. * Saturn Rosewell was going to do the same thing, actually! She was looking in likely places where traps and such might be found. Perception! 12
  82. DNA:    (As a note, Natasha is assumed to be sitting on her head to provide light.)
  83.         Blondelle Champagne:    Blondelle was not the most perceptive person, but she also looked around once prompted by the rest of the gang.
  84. * Blondelle Champagne rolls: 3d6+2 => 13 + 2 = 15
  85.         Blondelle Champagne:    (muahaha~)
  86. Kaorin Sakura whispers: Does this include touching surfaces?
  87. You whisper to Kaorin Sakura: Not with too much force, but yes.
  88. Kaorin Sakura whispers: You find an ash pile on the floor opposite of the corridor. In it is a broken sword and an old dagger.
  89. Kaorin Sakura whispers: You don't find any hidden traps or switches along the bottom of the sphere shaped elevator room.
  90.         Saturn Rosewell:        "Hm? Wat is dit?" Saturn mumbled, quietly to herself. Looks like she'd found something. Seemed to be some really old weapons.
  91. You whisper to Kaorin Sakura: Medicine check to make sure they're safe to touch: 18
  92.         Chloe:  "Hey look at this." Chloe said. She crouched over a small pile of ash. She had bumped something with her boots as she searched the pile and leaned down to brush off a broken sword and an old dagger.
  93. Kaorin Sakura whispers: Neither seem to be contaminated with any poison or disease.
  94.         Saturn Rosewell:        "...they seem safe to touch."
  95.         Blondelle Champagne:    "Hey!" Blondelle said. "I found something, too."
  96.         Chloe:  ((are these all different?))
  97.         Saturn Rosewell:        Apparently Saturn and Chloe had found the same objects.
  98.         Saturn Rosewell:        (I'm assuming you and I found the same thing, since you just described what I found.)
  99. The old Dagger is an exceptionally small weapon. It does not modify struggle damage base or accuracy in its present condition but can be drawn and sheathed as a Swift Action.
  100. The broken sword, however, is worth 1000 Pokedollars of scrap, that can be used for crafting (excluding inks and refreshments).
  101. DNA:    (You need the edge to turn it into Scrap, right, though? Or is it already Scrap?)
  102. Kaorin Sakura: (( Already scrap. ))
  103. DNA:    (A'right.)
  104. Kaorin Sakura: (( The edge turns finished items into scrap ))
  105.         Chloe:  "Do you want to carry these?"
  106.         Blondelle Champagne:    Blondelle wonders if these weapons would have some occult importance. Perhaps they could be used for more than basic weaponry.
  107.         Saturn Rosewell:        "The dagger looks usable, at least, so one of us should have it ready. I can offer to carry this sword, if you want."
  108.         Chloe:  Chloe stood up, "I have a lot of cloth in my backpack, I'm worried that sword would tear it. I can carry the dagger for now, it has a sheathe. Maybe Rochette would like it."
  109. * Natasha tidies up the sword piecies a bit so they're not as dusty, and places them in a compartment in her purse.
  110.         Natasha:        She gave a thumbs-up, as if to say "I've got this!"
  111. DNA:    I have logged the broken sword in my inventory.
  112. Kaorin Sakura: (( I just realized I haven't enforced weight. ))
  113. Kaorin Sakura: (( I'll do that later. ))
  114. DNA:    Boo weight. You're no fun. ;-;
  115. Kaorin Sakura: (( Weight is fun! ))
  116.         Blondelle Champagne:    we should emulate the games, unlimited weight for everyone
  117. DNA:    Not in any setting i've been in that uses it.
  118. Kaorin Sakura: (( I don't enjoy emulating the handhelds. ))
  119. DNA:    I wasn't even talking about the handhelds.
  120. Kaorin Sakura: (( That was for Jack ))
  121. DNA:    I know; I just like to get the jump on things.
  122. Kaorin Sakura: (( Anyway, any other actions in the sphere room? ))
  123.         Chloe:  Chloe finds a safe place in her backpack for the knife. "Should we move on?"
  124.         Saturn Rosewell:        "I didn't really find anything else here. Should we keep going?"
  125.         Blondelle Champagne:    Blondelle decides to take the lead. "I will be in front," she offered, "thinking I am the least hurt, probably the most capable at defending myself."
  126.         Blondelle Champagne:    She winks. Girl power!
  127.         Saturn Rosewell:        "..."
  128.         Saturn Rosewell:        "Chloe, you go ahead of me. I'll bring up the rear."
  129.         Blondelle Champagne:    "That's right, Saturn is easily capable of handling anything that tries to attack us from behind," she says, nodding.
  130. DNA:    (I'm actually not sure how you got least hurt. Saturn hasn't been hit once in the entire campaign. And this surprises me.)
  131.         Chloe:  "Very well." Chloe sent out Wineberry, "Lets do this!"
  132.         Blondelle Champagne:    (not actually least hurt, just protective of her friends)
  133. DNA:    (aha)
  134. * Natasha nodded, turning around to look behind as the party walked forward.
  135.         Blondelle Champagne:    Blondelle gives Chloe a nod and good girl pose.
  136.         Blondelle Champagne:    Blondelle leads the charge, slowly of course.
  137.         Natasha:        Perpetual intuition check! to survey the path behind. 21
  138.         Natasha:        ^Assume that would be the check against seeing anything approaching from behind.
  139.         Blondelle Champagne:    (cue 'i got a bad feeling about this...')
  140. Kaorin Sakura: (( Intuition cannot be used to emulate perception. But it can be used to get a feeling of 'being watched' if that's what you were going for. ))
  141. DNA:    Yeah, I'll go with that. Natasha's background makes her perception abysmal. -_-
  142.         Blondelle Champagne:    Intuition:
  143. * Blondelle Champagne rolls: 2d6+3 => 6 + 3 = 9
  144.         Blondelle Champagne:    Perception:
  145. * Blondelle Champagne rolls: 3d6+2 => 13 + 2 = 15
  146. Kaorin Sakura: (( I'll throw this into the skype chat. ))
  147.         Blondelle Champagne:    Blondelle is attempting to get a feel for any watching eyes, or any presence of nearby danger. She is also using her eyes to look forward; she's making sure she keeps her feet steady and looks ahead with care.
  148.         Wineberry:      Wineberry loses 0 hit points.
  149. Chloe must wait 22.871 seconds before it may move again!
  150.         Blondelle Champagne:    Intuition: Perception:Perception:
  151.         Blondelle Champagne:    did that work?
  152. The moment all of you step into the man-made corridor, your vision lessens. Nothing seems to be blocking the vision from your eyes, but the light provided for you seems to dim. Natasha's lightsource seems to dim, giving you only half the distance of vision she was providing moments before. The temperature also feels like it dropped at least 20 degrees.
  153. In addition to this, a somewhat black mist covers the ground, just slightly above your ankles preventing you from seeing the floor below. A faint song-like female voice echoes throughout the corridor, giving a hum-like song.
  154. Through it you can hear the faint movement of open water beyond the corridor.
  155. Kaorin Sakura: (( Yes. ))
  156.         Blondelle Champagne:    woo~
  157.         Chloe Blanchett:        As they walk Chloe looks out for the faint lights that had been watching them early in the cavern.
  158. Kaorin Sakura whispers: Natasha doesn't feel like she's being watched.
  159.         Blondelle Champagne:    Blondelle feels safe for a moment; this is until the coldness hits her. She shivers.
  160.         Saturn Rosewell:        "This is mildly disconcerting." Saturn wasn't as concerned about the temperature dropping, but she was concerned about the lack of light.
  161.         Blondelle Champagne:    (20 degrees celsius or farenheight drop?)
  162. Kaorin Sakura: (( Whatever Australia doesn't use. ))
  163.         Blondelle Champagne:    ( )
  164. DNA:    This tells me nothing
  165. Kaorin Sakura: (( Farenheight ))
  166.         Blondelle Champagne:    ( 20 degrees in aus is tropical, 0 degrees is freezing)
  167. Kaorin Sakura: (( It didn't drop to that, just by that. ))
  168. DNA:    A drop in 20C is pretty trippy, honestly. Also, it's spelt Fahrenheit.
  169.         Blondelle Champagne:    i'm going by australian spelling
  170.         Blondelle Champagne:    >.>
  171.         Blondelle Champagne:    .
  172. DNA:    ...Given how it's someone's name, there's only 1 way to spell it. Moving right along...
  173. Kaorin Sakura: (( Should I assume you all keep walking? ))
  174.         Natasha:        Intuition check for where the black mist is coming from - 4d6+4!
  175.         Blondelle Champagne:    Yes, Blondelle moves right along.
  176.         Chloe Blanchett:        Chloe hugged herself and shivered. "I... I don't like this..." Chloe stopped as she heard the singing. "...what is that...?"
  177.         Blondelle Champagne:    "I am more concerned about the singing..."
  178. Kaorin Sakura whispers: You can't discern where it originates from.
  179.         Blondelle Champagne:    "I don't know. Maybe it's... a Jynx...?"
  180.         Blondelle Champagne:    Blondelle had heard terrible stories.
  181.         Saturn Rosewell:        Saturn held her beret tightly over her head, to cover her ears, trying to prevent this horrible voice from getting into her head. "S-Should we ask something?"
  182.         Blondelle Champagne:    "Who are you?" Blondelle suddenly asked loudly, voice quivering a little.
  183.         Chloe Blanchett:        "Wait, we heard singing earlier too. Just like this, off in the distance. There's no way a voice would carry like that, especially not between that sealed lift. I think... we're being lured somewhere."
  184.         Saturn Rosewell:        "Yeah, I remember this. ...We're in trouble, aren't we..."
  185. ".t's w.i..en i, t.. s...s
  186. ..u c.. ..n b.t .o. c..'. h...
  187. I wi.l a.w..s - a.w..s f..d y.u"
  188.         Blondelle Champagne:    "..."
  189.         Chloe Blanchett:        "I will always, always find you?"
  190.         Blondelle Champagne:    "Well," Blondelle said, "that's not freaky deaky."
  191. Kaorin Sakura: (( The , should be a . ))
  192.         Chloe Blanchett:        "You can but you can't... I will always, always find you... I didn't make out the first part."
  193.         Saturn Rosewell:        "The second bit is 'you can run but you can't hide'..."
  194.         Saturn Rosewell:        "I'm trying to figure out the first part, but either way..."
  195.         Saturn Rosewell:        "Let's just find out what's down here, and then leave."
  196.         Chloe Blanchett:        Chloe looked around at the darkened mist around them, using her occult knowledge to unearth some clues.
  197.         Blondelle Champagne:    "I don't this mist. It's icky."
  198.         Blondelle Champagne:    Blondelle looked for the source or direction of the voice.
  199.         Saturn Rosewell:        Medicine check (4d6+2) to see if this mist will do mean and nasty stuff:
  200.         Blondelle Champagne:    Perception:
  201. Kaorin Sakura whispers: It's colder at your ankles than anywhere else. So it's likely the source of the drop in heat and likely the reduction in light. It's definitely not natural.
  202.         Blondelle Champagne:    "The voice is coming from that corridor over there," Blondelle noted, pointing in its supposed direction.
  203. Kaorin Sakura: (( She means the one you're in. ))
  204.         Chloe Blanchett:        Chloe looked at the mist with a cold, silent expression.
  205.         Blondelle Champagne:    Blondelle looks to Chloe. "Are you alright, Chloe?" she asked.
  206.         Blondelle Champagne:    She looked a bit timid.
  207.         Saturn Rosewell:        "It's this mist that's making everything cold. ...I really don't want to stick around here." Where to go next, Perception! (2d6+2)
  208. Kaorin Sakura whispers: You could return to the elevator or continue forward through the corridor.
  209. Kaorin Sakura: (( whisper, whisper, whisper ))
  210. You whisper to Kaorin Sakura: So we either just keep going or go back? No third option?
  211. Kaorin Sakura whispers: You're in a corridor. There's a forward and a backward.
  212. Player "...I" is not connected.
  213.         Blondelle Champagne:    Blondelle released her brand spankin' new Flitwick. "Time to heat this place up."
  214.         Chloe Blanchett:        Chloe shook her head. "I don't know. There's a lot of strange things down here. I'm not sure what's alive and what isn't at this point. This mist doesn't seem natural... but even that I can't say for certain." Chloe inhaled deeply and did her best to look assured, "But, we came down here for a reason. We can't let a little spookiness stop us."
  215. You whisper to Kaorin Sakura: ...I expected more, but I'm glad there isn't more.
  216.         Saturn Rosewell:        "Yeah. We should just keep going, as far as we can. Sooner we get to the end, sooner we can leave. Rochette's waiting for us."
  217.         Flitwick:       "Lit~~"
  218.         Flitwick:       Flitwick, newly named, lit the area up even more. It wagged its eyebrows at all the girlies.
  219.         Chloe Blanchett:        "It's either forward or run away, and we can expect a lot worse from this point on. Lets keep going." Chloe looked to the two others, waiting to see them agree before taking steps toward that voice as a group. Even as they began to walk Chloe would keep a careful eye out for any falls. "Watch the ground everyone... the mist might be hiding dropoffs. It's a long fall into some very cold water."
  220.         Blondelle Champagne:    "Use Ember on that Mist, Flitwick!" she ordered.
  221.         Flitwick:       Flitwick obliged.
  222.         Saturn Rosewell:        "Yeah, good idea." Perception (2d6+2) to continually (not continuously) glance at the floor:
  223. Kaorin Sakura:  Well, it has evasions 0. So, make an accuracy and damage roll.
  224.         Flitwick:       does that have to be GM, too?
  225.         Flitwick:       =3
  226. Kaorin Sakura:  Nah
  227. * Blondelle Champagne rolls: 1d20-2 => 11 - 2 = 9
  228. DNA:    I think only skill checks must be as GM rolls.
  229.         Chloe Blanchett:        Chloe keeps an extra slow pace, prodding out with her foot carefully before dedicating to the step.
  230. Kaorin Sakura:  So, let me see that damage roll.
  231. Flitwick must wait 28.356 seconds before it may move again!
  232. * Blondelle Champagne rolls: 2d8+6+15 => 9 + 6 + 15 = 30
  233.         Flitwick:       Fire, Special!
  234. Kaorin Sakura:  Well then!
  235. Kaorin Sakura:  Allow me to calculate...uh...things.
  236. Kaorin Sakura:  Buuuuut, while I do that...
  237.         Chloe Blanchett:        ((attacking the darkness!)
  238. DNA:    ...I'm going to hurt someone before the night is over, I just know it.
  239.         Flitwick:       ((sorry, Rochette, I didn't realise you followed us...))
  240. DNA:    P.sure she did not.
  241. Kaorin Sakura: (( She didn't ))
  242.         Flitwick:       ((what have I done!?!?))
  243. The mist is suddenly set ablaze and bursts into flames. With you standing in the mist, the flames engulf you before the entire corridor. Briefly before the hallway catches fire you can see the end of the corridor and just outside of it everything else also catches fire!
  244. Everyone currrently in that hallway (Pokemon included) suffers 60 Special Fire Damage.
  245. The fire burns harshly for a few moments before it all puffs away into smoke. The mist that once carressed the floor and your ankles is no more and the smell of burnt flesh, cloth and hair fills your nose.
  246. DNA:    Okay, just before anyone does anything
  247. DNA:    Jack, I'm going to kill you.
  248.         Blondelle Champagne:    "I didn't do it."
  249.         Saturn Rosewell:        "You inconsiderate--!"
  250.         Wineberry:      Wineberry loses 102 hit points.
  251.         Wineberry:      The injury lowered the Special Defense stat!
  252.         Wineberry:      The injury lowered the Accuracy stat!
  253.         Wineberry:      The injury lowered the Speed stat!
  254. DNA:    (Calculating damage)
  255.         Natasha:        Natasha lost 25 HP!
  256.         Natasha:        The injury lowered the Accuracy stat!
  257.         Natasha:        The injury lowered the Accuracy stat!
  258.         Chloe Blanchett:        Chloe Blanchett loses 46 hit points.
  259.         Chloe Blanchett:        The injury lowered the Defense stat!
  260.         Chloe Blanchett:        The injury lowered the Attack stat!
  261.         Chloe Blanchett:        The injury lowered the Special Attack stat!
  262.         Saturn Rosewell:        Saturn Rosewell lost 50 HP!
  263.         Saturn Rosewell:        The injury lowered the Speed stat!
  264.         Saturn Rosewell:        The injury lowered the Special Defense stat!
  265.         Blondelle Champagne:    Blondelle Champagne loses 50 hit points.
  266.         Blondelle Champagne:    "Irk!"
  267.         Blondelle Champagne:    Blondelle is knocked out.
  268.         Chloe Blanchett:        Both Chloe and Wineberry are blasted to the ground unconcious.
  269. Kaorin Sakura: (( You had less than 50 HP? ))
  270. Kaorin Sakura: (( More so directed at Blondelle ))
  271.         Chloe Blanchett:        (( 50 HP is my max, and I had damage))
  272.         June Oliver:    June Oliver loses 22 hit points.
  273. Kaorin Sakura: (( ...Well then! ))
  274. Kaorin Sakura: (( Who's conscious?! ))
  275.         Saturn Rosewell:        Saturn and Natasha are both conscious, but barely!
  276.         Saturn Rosewell:        Anyone else?
  277. Kaorin Sakura:  June looks to still be up.
  278. Kaorin Sakura:  Everyone else: No.
  279. Kaorin Sakura:  Well, that's Rochette but she's MIA.
  280. Kaorin Sakura:  there's, rather.
  281.         Blondelle Champagne:    (yep)
  282.         Blondelle Champagne:    (in hindsight i should've just had June Oliver use Sunny Day )
  283.         Saturn Rosewell:        Saturn and Natasha both screamed as the flames struck at them! And when the dust cleared, everyone had fallen asleep.
  284. DNA:    ...Don't even joke about that.
  285.         Saturn Rosewell:        "Dammit. DAMMIT! This is not worth it!"
  286.         Flitwick:       Flitwick loses 25 hit points.
  287. The voice also screams during the immediate blaze and then goes quiet.
  288.         Saturn Rosewell:        "I wouldn't mind were it just me, but she very nearly killed Chloe!"
  289. Kaorin Sakura: (( Because I forgot that. ))
  290.         Flitwick:       The injury lowered the Defense stat!
  291. * Saturn Rosewell also noticed the voice go quiet.
  292.         Flitwick:       The injury lowered the Speed stat!
  293.         Saturn Rosewell:        "...?"
  294.         Natasha:        "...?"
  295.         Saturn Rosewell:        "Wait, this could mean..." She turned back around to the teddy and the candle. "Are you two okay?"
  296.         June Oliver:    June Oliver looked pretty fine.
  297.         June Oliver:    He nodded.
  298.         June Oliver:    "Yawn~"
  299.         Flitwick:       Flitwick looked less than stellar; his waggling eyebrow ways were on the back burner... quite literally. The blast had literally singed his eyebrows off!
  300.         Saturn Rosewell:        "...You two STAY here. I'm going to investigate up ahead. Don't do ANYTHING until I get back. If I'm not back in a half-hour, take everyone back to the elevator."
  301.         Saturn Rosewell:        Though, before she did anything...she applied Medic on herself.
  302.         Saturn Rosewell:        20 Medicine
  303.         Saturn Rosewell:        Saturn Rosewell is healed for 40 HP!
  304.         Saturn Rosewell:        Saturn Rosewell is healed for 2 HP!
  305.         Saturn Rosewell:        Saturn Rosewell lost 4 HP!
  306. Blondelle Champagne is disconnected.
  307. Blondelle Champagne is disconnected.
  308.         Saturn Rosewell:        Saturn Rosewell spent 1 AP!
  309.         Saturn Rosewell:        "Natasha. We're going on ahead to find out what screamed and died. Then we're coming right back here, and taking everyone out of here. Got it?"
  310. Avara has connected.
  311. * Natasha saluted in understanding. Then she sat on Saturn's hat, and Saturn took off further down the corridor! Again, walking carefully to make sure she didn't trigger anything.
  312.         Saturn Rosewell:        Perception again. If applicable just use the previous check.
  313. Blondelle Champagne has connected.
  314.         Saturn Rosewell:        She will only go as far as the others will remain within visible range. If the end is not in sight by then, she will stop.
  315. Kaorin Sakura whispers: You can see everything clearly.
  316. You whisper to Kaorin Sakura: What is there to see?
  317. Kaorin Sakura whispers: With Natasha providing you like, you can see a winding road that was once covered in mist with a 4m drop into icy waters around it. The road leads to a spiked metallic cage with a burnt woman at its center, impaled from all angles (some less pleasant than others) at its center.
  318. In the waters, floating at its surface unconscious, are 17 Croagunk.
  319.         Blondelle Champagne:    Blondelle was unconscious. That hurt.
  320. Avara:  do i need to make a perception check to have heard the boom?
  321. Kaorin Sakura: (( Oh no, you heard it. And saw it. ))
  322. You whisper to Kaorin Sakura: I'm going to use Intuition checks to see if that woman looks anything like Nylora or possibly one of her relatives. Saturn 3d6+1: Natasha 4d6+4
  323. You whisper to Kaorin Sakura: How far away from me at this point are Chloe and Blondelle and the others?
  324. Kaorin Sakura whispers: Yes, she resembles Nylora. Perfectly actually. Save for the injuries she has.
  325.         Rochette:       Rochette sets her sleeping bag on the stone switch to see if that's heavy enough to keep the elevator in place. If she starts to rise she gets back on the switch.
  326. Kaorin Sakura whispers: About 10 meters.
  327. Kaorin Sakura: (( What's in your bag? ))
  328. You whisper to Kaorin Sakura: Can I get a physical description of the woman, to report back to Nylora about?
  329. Avara:  4 full heal, 5 potion, 3 basic ball, 1 bandages, 1 balm mushroom
  330. Kaorin Sakura whispers: A beautiful dark haired and pale skinned woman.
  331. Kaorin Sakura whispers: Literally, that's the description from the distance you are at.
  332.         Saturn Rosewell:        "...Good enough." Saturn nodded in satisfaction, having mentally taken notes.
  333. Avara:  using it as a make-shift backpack
  334. Kaorin Sakura: (( Yeah, that's not enough weight to hold it down. ))
  335.         Saturn Rosewell:        "Natasha, we're leaving."
  336. * Saturn Rosewell and Natasha went back to the others.
  337.         Chloe Blanchett:        ((Sunkern doll, medication, clothing, swimsuit, towel, toothbrush, toothpaste, comb, cantine, metal cup, old dagger, two portable planters, two friend balls, Moon ball, love ball, balm mushroom))
  338.         Saturn Rosewell:        "Teddy. Candle. You're going to have to help lift or drag these two women back."
  339. Kaorin Sakura: (( lolLitwick ))
  340.         Flitwick:       Flitwick made a salute.
  341.         Flitwick:       "Lit~"
  342.         Rochette:       Rochette sends Roland out to catch up to the others.
  343. Kaorin Sakura: (( Roland will have to SQUEEZE ))
  344. Kaorin Sakura: (( Because Corridor is 1m wide. ))
  345. Avara:  what kind of check would that be? or would it be impossible?
  346. Kaorin Sakura: (( ...Wait. ))
  347.         Saturn Rosewell:        Saturn has a power rating of 5, so she can probably take 1 of them by herself. Natasha has a power rating of 3, so she may need help.
  348.         Flitwick:       He attempted to hardest to drag Blondelle back to safety.
  349. Kaorin Sakura: (( Sorry. THIS corridor is 2m wide. Forget what I said. ))
  350.         Saturn Rosewell:        Saturn is going to pick up Chloe. Natasha is going to help the teddy and candle pick up Blondelle, and then all will head back to the elevator.
  351.         Roland:         Roland rushes to catch up after being informed about the explosion, and why Rochette can't move.
  352.         Saturn Rosewell:        By the time Roland catches up they will probably be lifting bodies already. Saturn will just ask him to help carry.
  353. Kaorin Sakura:  Saturn can definitely carry 1 Human. Natasha can drag another. Litwick will likely be no use in this event.
  354.         Saturn Rosewell:        Carrying Chloe.
  355. Avara:  roland has mountable 2
  356.         Natasha:        Will drag Blondelle, but then hand her off to Roland when he gets here.
  357.         Roland:         Roland uses his head to tap both humans, and then get down low to let everyone try to get the unconscious onto his back, using his wings to help if possible
  358.         Flitwick:       (how much does Flitwick manage to help with his 1 Power?)
  359. DNA:    HAHAHAHAHAHA basically nothing
  360.         Flitwick:       Flitwick's face scrunches up as continues fruitlessly.
  361. DNA:    So everyone makes it back? No other obstructions or weird encounters?
  362.         Flitwick:       "LIT~"
  363.         Wineberry:      Wineberry was left behind for the first movement
  364. Kaorin Sakura: (( None. ))
  365. DNA:    oh right
  366.         Natasha:        I'll go get them!
  367. Kaorin Sakura: (( There were 3 unconscious. Roland could take 2. Saturn took 1. I figured all 3 were carried fine. ))
  368.         Natasha:        Since I handed off the human, I can carry the others easily.
  369.         June Oliver:    June Oliver approaches Saturn in his lazy way. He pokes her leg.
  370.         Wineberry:      ((Okay, humans on Roland, Saturn took Wineberry))
  371.         June Oliver:    Once he gains her attention, he points at the direction of the once-existing voice.
  372.         Saturn Rosewell:        "Not now, teddy - I'm trying to carry your lout of an owner... Just follow along with me."
  373.         Saturn Rosewell:        "Wait, what?"
  374. * Saturn Rosewell has her attention caught, and looks at where June's pointing.
  375.         Roland:         ((DNA, roland tried to get both humans on his back to free you up.))
  376.         June Oliver:    The Teddiursa looks concerned.
  377.         June Oliver:    Well, sort of. He was very apathetic, actually.
  378.         June Oliver:    He was the polar opposite of Blondelle.
  379.         June Oliver:    Geddit. Polar. He's a bear.
  380.         Saturn Rosewell:        Right, of course. Forgot that.
  381. DNA:    Shut up and get to the point.
  382.         June Oliver:    June Oliver leads the way where the voice once existed.
  383.         Flitwick:       Flitwick follows!
  384.         Flitwick:       He looks scared, though.
  385.         Roland:         Roland nudges Saturn and does his best to convey a questioning expression.
  386.         Saturn Rosewell:        Saturn responded with signs. She pointed at the unconscious Blondelle, then made an angry face and shook her head "no".
  387.         Saturn Rosewell:        Then she went after the teddy, to see what it had to say.
  388.         Roland:         Roland heads back to the elevator to deposit and guard the unconscious trainers.
  389. * Saturn Rosewell went ahead, as did Natasha (for light) with June. They'd be back.
  390.         Chloe:  Chloe laid on the ground, wounded and tattered. It was worse than she'd ever had, but all things considered she didn't look too bad.
  391.         Rochette:       Rochette takes the opportunity to look through the inventories of Chloe and Blondelle.
  392. DNA:    Jack? I'm waiting for you to tell me stuff.
  393.         Flitwick:       (2 potions, 2 poke ball)
  394.         June Oliver:    June is leading the way to the voice that screamed out after the explosion.
  395.         Chloe:  ((No obvious healing items))
  396.         Chloe:  ((except the balm mushroom Chloe had found earlier.))
  397. * Saturn Rosewell follows June, though she has a feeling it'll be just the same stuff.
  398. Kaorin Sakura: (( June will lead you to the road you went to earlier. ))
  399.         Saturn Rosewell:        (With the cage and everything?)
  400. Kaorin Sakura: (( Yep ))
  401.         Rochette:       4 medicine check to see just how hurt the two are.
  402. * Saturn Rosewell looks at where June led her. ...She'd already been here.
  403.         Saturn Rosewell:        She looked down at June.
  404.         June Oliver:    June pointed at the cage more urgently.
  405.         Saturn Rosewell:        "...I know. I already looked over here." She patted June's head. "Thanks, though."
  406. You whisper to Kaorin Sakura: Will I see anything different about the cage than I did earlier, now that June's pointing at it?
  407.         Rochette:       Rochette uses a potion on each trainer from her own inventory. Heal 20 HP.
  408.         Chloe Blanchett:        Chloe Blanchett is healed and gains 20 hit points.
  409.         June Oliver:    (did you do this when i disconnected?)
  410.         June Oliver:    (nvm then)
  411.         Saturn Rosewell:        (Yeah)
  412.         Chloe Blanchett:        Chloe seems to be in much better condition, but does not awaken. ((Possitive HP))
  413.         Saturn Rosewell:        She then picked June up, and hurried back to the others.
  414.         June Oliver:    June Oliver is picked up, then. He looks sad as his owner probably killed an innocent, caged, creature...
  415.         Saturn Rosewell:        (Assuming I do not run into anything else on the way back to the elevator.)
  416. Kaorin Sakura: (( She'll awaken in about 10 minutes. ))
  417.         Saturn Rosewell:        I don't run into anything, do I? Hoping not. If so I'll just go sit/stand/whatever on that large stone platform again.
  418. Kaorin Sakura:  You make it there fine. I assume everyone else is there as well?
  419.         Saturn Rosewell:        By now, they should be.
  420.         Chloe Blanchett:        ((Seems like it))
  421.         Rochette:       still here
  422. Kaorin Sakura:  If you're merely going backwards you won't have problems leaving.
  423.         Blondelle Champagne:    Blondelle is presumably still an unconscious mess.
  424. Kaorin Sakura:  Until those plants that grew.
  425. Kaorin Sakura:  Until you get to those, I mean.
  426. Kaorin Sakura:  You were healed 20 HP.
  427. Kaorin Sakura:  Are you still below positive HP?
  428.         Blondelle Champagne:    Blondelle Champagne is healed and gains 20 hit points.
  429.         Rochette:       Rochette is sitting in a pseudo-meditative stance, having done what she can. She looks up at Saturn. "What -happened-?"
  430.         Saturn Rosewell:        "I'm going to KILL Blondelle when she wakes up."
  431.         Blondelle Champagne:    "Ugh... I feel awful..." she said. "What happened?"
  432.         Saturn Rosewell:        "Let's just get out of here. I'll tell you the story on the way back."
  433. DNA:    @Jack: You have to wait 10 minute before waking up.
  434. Avara:  let us know when blondelle and chloe wake up
  435. Kaorin Sakura: (( Getting there will be long enough for anyone (Pokemon included) that are at positive HP to regain consciousness. ))
  436. The plants from before that had grown in size as you moved pass them grows again as you return, one of them completely blocking the exit while the others have grown to small size. Each is still coated in the slime you so lovingly recall.
  437.         Saturn Rosewell:        "Really glad you didn't decide to come with us, Rochette. Further down the corridor, there was this black mist that seemed to suck the heat out of the air, as well as this siren-like voice that was saying stuff like 'you can run, but you can't hide - I'll always be there'.
  438.         Saturn Rosewell:        (Still typing more)
  439.         Chloe Blanchett:        Chloe stirs, wincing as she feels the burns over her skin. "ah- ahahah!" She gasps as she sits up.
  440.         Chloe Blanchett:        "What happened... I remember a roar, then heat... I thought I died.."
  441.         Saturn Rosewell:        "For whatever reason, Rochette had her Litwick try to ignite the mist. It exploded, which is what you saw, killing whoever was singing as well. Natasha and I ran further down to find out exactly who was singing. It was some woman in a spiked metal cage impaled about very uncomfortably and charred to death. She was dark haired, pale skinned, and looked like Nylora."
  442.         Saturn Rosewell:        "So I think she was alive, until that explosion."
  443. Avara:  *blondellle
  444. DNA:    yes that
  445.         Saturn Rosewell:        "...we're going to have to cut down this plant, aren't we."
  446.         Rochette:       "..." She kicks Blondelle lightly.
  447.         Rochette:       "I don't think we have any cutters. We might have to burn."
  448.         Flitwick:       Flitwick gets right in Rochette's face. It wags its little finger in a 'no, no, no' fashion.
  449.         Rochette:       Rochette blows a puff of air at Flitwick's flame.
  450.         Blondelle Champagne:    "Irk!"
  451.         Saturn Rosewell:        "I'll have Natasha handle that, but...just to be safe, let's all keep a safe distance."
  452. * Natasha was floating around 3m back from it, the furthest she could get.
  453.         Chloe Blanchett:        "We have to check on her!" Chloe exclaimed, "If she's like Nylora she can't die that easy!"
  454.         Saturn Rosewell:        "Chloe... I'm fairly sure she was dead. And even so, getting into the cage she was trapped in would be impossible."
  455.         Rochette:       "Roland can use gust alongside Natasha's burn, and push the flames and smoke away."
  456.         Saturn Rosewell:        "It was spiked all around the outside and suspended over ice water."
  457.         Chloe Blanchett:        "We have to try.... it's what we came here to do!"
  458. * Saturn Rosewell was standing 8m back from the large plant.
  459.         Blondelle Champagne:    Blondelle finally came to; she got up and looked a lot worse for wear.
  460.         Rochette:       "Our primary mission was to find her location and status. We can come back and free her when we're not bleeding all over the floor."
  461. You whisper to Kaorin Sakura: Would I have been able to tell if the woman was alive or not?
  462.         Chloe Blanchett:        "But what about the others! There's at least one more."
  463.         Saturn Rosewell:        "Chloe! I know you're concerned, but...look at us. We're lucky to have survived that."
  464.         Rochette:       "When we're not. Bleeding. All over. The floor."
  465.         Natasha:        "Ben je klaar? Ik ga hier!" Natasha called out, preparing to attack the plant.
  466. Kaorin Sakura whispers: You weren't close enough to get a medical evaluation. But no normal person would have survived it, that's for sure.
  467.         Rochette:       "We're no help to the sisters now, and less help to Nylora if we die."
  468. You whisper to Kaorin Sakura: Damn you, that doesn't help me at all. ;-; Even I knew that.
  469.         Blondelle Champagne:    "What happened?" she asked. "Did my plan work?"
  470.         Saturn Rosewell:        "..."
  471. Kaorin Sakura whispers: I'm sorry. ;-;
  472.         Blondelle Champagne:    "You all look horrible..."
  473. * Saturn Rosewell attempted to punch Blondelle across the flaps. 2
  474.         Chloe Blanchett:        "..." Chloe looked down.
  475.         Blondelle Champagne:    She commented on their burned up looks.
  476.         Rochette:       "Your plan nearly got everybody killed."
  477.         Rochette:       "And you may have killed one of the mission objectives."
  478. Kaorin Sakura: (( That hits. ))
  479.         Saturn Rosewell:        14 Physical, Normal.
  480. Kaorin Sakura: (( Blondelle is struck for 14 Normal Physical Damage (before defenses). ))
  481.         Saturn Rosewell:        ^
  482.         Blondelle Champagne:    Blondelle Champagne loses 9 hit points.
  483.         Blondelle Champagne:    "Irk!"
  484.         Saturn Rosewell:        "If you EVER pull crap like THAT again, you will NOT be invited back!"
  485. Saturn quite clearly decks Blondelle across the jaw.
  486.         Blondelle Champagne:    She's knocked out.
  487. * Saturn Rosewell rubbed her fist.
  488.         Saturn Rosewell:        "...I feel a bit better after letting that out. Natasha? You're up."
  489.         Chloe Blanchett:        "Oh my! Wineberry!" Chloe rushed over to the unconcious butterfly, kneeling down and hesitently reaching for it. She was too distracted to even notice the punch.
  490.         Natasha:        Incinerate! against the giant plant. 3 vs Special!
  491. Kaorin Sakura:  The injury lowered the Accuracy stat!
  492. Kaorin Sakura:  ^ Blondelle's injury
  493.         Natasha:        30 Special, Fire - Berries on the plant are destroyed (burnt up).
  494.         Blondelle Champagne:    The injury lowered the Defense stat!
  495.         Roland:         Gust to help control the flames. 6 vs special
  496.         Chloe Blanchett:        Chloe recalled the vivillion and looked down the hall that had held the mist. "... I'm going to at least look, see for myself." Chloe ran off to the room that was said to hold the cage.
  497.         Saturn Rosewell:        "Chloe, wait!"
  498.         Roland:         26 windy flying damage.
  499.         Saturn Rosewell:        (Is it too late to stop her?)
  500. The plant cries out in pain with an ear-piercing shriek! The slime along it burns a rainbow colour before the plant itself shrinks down to the size of a pin, sizzling and lifeless.
  501. Kaorin Sakura: (( You guys are REALLY far from that. ))
  502.         Chloe Blanchett:        Chloe hears Saturn, but through all that had happened didn't have it in her to stop.
  503. Kaorin Sakura: (( You're back before the split ))
  504. Kaorin Sakura: (( Where the plants are ))
  505.         Saturn Rosewell:        (Yeah. I remember you saying we're back at the entrance. That is a long way back.)
  506.         Chloe Blanchett:        (( I did not go up the elevator unless they brought me ))
  507. Kaorin Sakura: (( You were uncosncious at the time. ))
  508.         Saturn Rosewell:        ^
  509. Avara:  you woke up after the elevator ride, basically
  510.         Chloe Blanchett:        (( I thought we were still in the room with the lift ))
  511. Kaorin Sakura: (( They were heading back so I allowed movement to the point where you could no longer advance, where everyone would, by that point, awaken. ))
  512. Avara:  reallyno
  513. DNA:    "The plants from before that had grown in size as you moved pass them grows again as you return, one of them completely blocking the exit while the others have grown to small size. Each is still coated in the slime you so lovingly recall."
  514. Kaorin Sakura: (( There's not much stopping you to return down the descent however ))
  515. DNA:    Key phrase "completely blocking the exit".
  516. Avara:  except for the lack of sight
  517.         Chloe Blanchett:        (( I had awoken long before that, so I figured that group had split off ))
  518. Avara:  natasha's our only light source
  519. Kaorin Sakura: (( I mentioned 'by that time'. ))
  520. Kaorin Sakura: (( So, you hadn't. You would awaken in 10 minutes. ))
  521. DNA:    I wish to establish if Chloe is actually attempting to go back before doing anything.
  522.         Flitwick:       Flitwick is also a lightsource.
  523.         Chloe Blanchett:        (( Chloe does try to run back, sending out Nega for a lightsource once she realizes she needs one ))
  524.         Saturn Rosewell:        "Chloe...!!"
  525.         Saturn Rosewell:        "...Argh... ...I'll go back after her. She'll be trapped if she gets off that elevator!"
  526. * Saturn Rosewell takes off, sprinting if necessary!
  527.         Rochette:       "I--..." She keeps watch over the plants. Has she been given the old dagger?
  528.         Chloe Blanchett:        Chloe would be found in the room with the elevator. Not on it, not decending, but standing still.
  529.         Chloe Blanchett:        ((yes))
  530. Kaorin Sakura: (( Chloe can return without anything preventing her advance. ))
  531.         Saturn Rosewell:        Survival check if necessary:
  532.         Saturn Rosewell:        (Let me know when I reach her.)
  533. Kaorin Sakura: (( And with Chloe not descending, Saturn can catch up to her. ))
  534. Avara:  ... the flowers were glowy, right?
  535. Kaorin Sakura: (( Yes. ))
  536.         Chloe Blanchett:        As Chloe saw Saturn run up to her she turned, "... I'm going to be a burden, no matter what I do from here. Aren't I."
  537. Avara:  does the dagger look rusted or dull?
  538. The flowers stop glowing when Saturn leaves the area. All the flowers return to their algae state.
  539.         Rochette:       "... Hnn."
  540.         Saturn Rosewell:        "...Truth be told, I didn't get a good enough look at the body myself. I assumed due to the scream that she was dead."
  541.         Saturn Rosewell:        "But please don't worry us like that."
  542.         Rochette:       Rochette fiddles with the dagger a bit, but is careful not to drop it or put much stress on it. She'd have to get Nylora to tell her about it later.
  543.         Chloe Blanchett:        "... I'm sorry." Chloe said weakly. "I just... she said I was a hero, I had something to live up to. I didn't want to let her down. But now that's my only choice, is to let her down, or be a burden and run off." Chloe wiped her eyes clean of whatever they may have held, "I... I'll come back with you. But I will return once I'm better. ...if she's anything like Nylora she's probably alive. Maybe just unconcious like I was."
  544.         Saturn Rosewell:        "...No. Let's finish the job. We'll go check."
  545.         Saturn Rosewell:        "One of us is going to stay on the elevator. The other one will go forward."
  546. * Saturn Rosewell stood on the platform.
  547.         Chloe Blanchett:        Chloe smiled to Saturn, "Thank you. Lets go."
  548.         Chloe Blanchett:        Chloe did as well.
  549.         Saturn Rosewell:        "You stay here on the elevator; I'll be the one to go. You're in no shape to go forward."
  550.         Saturn Rosewell:        "If anyone asks, you found her."
  551.         Chloe Blanchett:        "...okay. You're the better medic. I trust you."
  552. Kaorin Sakura:  I'll skip the massive descriptions. Nothing attacks you as you descend.
  553.         Saturn Rosewell:        Saturn goes all the way to the end, following the path she took, until she's back at the spiked metal cage.
  554.         Saturn Rosewell:        Medicine check (4d6+2) to actually make sure if she's ALIVE:
  555. Kaorin Sakura whispers: She's breathing. Just unconscious. On the front of the cage is a keyhole. There's chains from the locking mechanism intertwined with every metal bar of the cage.
  556.         Saturn Rosewell:        Looking for a key! Perception:
  557.         Natasha:        Perception, same as above:
  558. Kaorin Sakura whispers: You find none. But you recall one of you picked one up earlier.
  559. Kaorin Sakura: (( Whisper, whisper ))
  560.         Chloe Blanchett:        As she waits Chloe fiddled with the key around her neck. It was an interesting trinket, and after all that had happened it was rather relaxing to toy with.
  561. You whisper to Kaorin Sakura: I picked up a key earlier?
  562. DNA:    ...
  563. Kaorin Sakura whispers: I don't remember who did. But someone did. A key was found.
  564.         Saturn Rosewell:        "Natasha, go and get that key from Chloe! Pronto!"
  565.         Saturn Rosewell:        She said this in Dutch, and I'm too lazy to type it!
  566. * Natasha zipped off.
  567. Kaorin Sakura: (( Nothing prevents this transaction. ))
  568. * Natasha noticed the key around Chloe's neck. She pointed at it, then held out her hand, as if asking for it.
  569.         Chloe Blanchett:        Chloe blinked, "Oh? Oh! Here, take it." She took the string from around her neck, handing over the key as well as the whistle that the string was fixed to.
  570. * Natasha salutes Chloe, and with a "Danke!" zips back off again.
  571.         Saturn Rosewell:        When Natasha gets back, Saturn asks her to unlock the cage and try to extricate the body. Carefully. The spikes are very pointy.
  572.         Natasha:        Natasha will attempt to do so with VERY GREAT CARE.
  573.         Natasha:        She will be acting SLOWLY and CAUTIOUSLY. Focus check (2d6+4) if necessary:
  574. The key unlocks the cage and Saturn doesn't harm herself in doing so. The chains around the rods and mechanisms pulls the cage apart and the spikes and contraptions lodged inside the woman out of her. The cage unravels itself, twisting and the metal bending until it is merely 8 smooth metal bars surrounding the woman - who slumps onto the stone ground.
  575. The area is a circular shape, made entirely of stone and the 8 metal rods at the edges, sticking directly up and extending 6-meters up.
  576. DNA:    Will Saturn and/or Natasha be able to carry her back without obstruction or difficulty?
  577. Kaorin Sakura: (( Yes. ))
  578. Kaorin Sakura whispers: She's lighter than any of your other party members. By now, you'd know.
  579. DNA:    They do so! And head back to the elevator with Chloe.
  580.         Chloe Blanchett:        Chloe's expression brightens considerably when she sees Saturn return, "Y- You did it, you're the BEST!" She bounced where she sat in excitement.
  581.         Saturn Rosewell:        "We'll have time for celebrating when we get back to our campsite." She stood on the platform, Natasha still sitting on her hat.
  582.         Chloe Blanchett:        "Right!" Chloe still beamed with admiration.
  583.         Natasha:        "Tijd om terug! We hebben geweldig!"
  584.         Chloe Blanchett:        "Yeah!" Chloe agreed. She didn't need to know what Natasha said to hear the jubilation in her voice.
  585. Kaorin Sakura: (( You can make it back to the group with ease. ))
  586.         Natasha:        When they finally made it back, Natasha flashed a thumbs-up as Saturn was still carrying the other girl.
  587. When Saturn and Chloe returns, the plants resume their bright glow but oddly do not grow in size this time around.
  588.         Chloe Blanchett:        "... I'm sorry I was stubborn back there Saturn, and while it worked out this time... it was only because I was lucky. I'll keep everyone else in mind in the future, I have to help the team as much as I have to help others."
  589.         Rochette:       Once Saturn and Chloe return, she looks to Saturn. "They only glow and bloom when you're around, I think."
  590.         Saturn Rosewell:        "It's not your fault, Chloe. You did what you believed was right."
  591.         Saturn Rosewell:        "When...when I'M around?" Saturn asked Rochette. "You sure it's me? and not, say, Natasha?"
  592.         Rochette:       "I'm not. We can test."
  593.         Rochette:       "But it went back to algae when you left."
  594.         Chloe Blanchett:        "Natasha maybe. It might not like fire... or psychic, or aura reading." Chloe looked at Natasha, "You're really unique, you know that?"
  595.         Rochette:       "... It let out a scream when we burned it, though. Could you have Natasha check it for aura?"
  596. * Natasha fistpumped the air at Chloe's comment. She was special!
  597.         Rochette:       "Mind-reading check for anyone we don't know about, if possible."
  598.         Chloe Blanchett:        Chloe smiled warmly to Natasha and nodded.
  599. * Saturn Rosewell passed on Rochette's question to Natasha.
  600. * Natasha did so with Aura Reader! Are there any more checks I need to make while analyzing the plants?
  601. Kaorin Sakura:  You could try a Perception to look for something specific with aura reader.
  602.         Rochette:       "Nylora's going to be upset if we burned -both- her sisters."
  603.         Natasha:        Will do so.
  604.         Saturn Rosewell:        "Wait, you think one of her sisters...was one of these plants?"
  605. Kaorin Sakura whispers: It has a reactive aura it looks like. Upon closer investigation, it seems to be copying Saturn's aura. Almost drawing off of it.
  606.         Rochette:       "Trapped within or behind, potentially."
  607.         Chloe Blanchett:        "If her prison was anything like Nylora's... I think they're used to pain. I'd go through that explosion again if it meant I would be free."
  608.         Rochette:       "Can you think of any other reason it'd explode?"
  609. Blondelle Champagne is disconnected.
  610. Avara:  sorry, not explode
  611. Avara:  scream
  612. * Natasha raised an eyebrow.
  613.         Chloe Blanchett:        "I tried talking to it, it didn't respond..."
  614. Avara:  we don't want the plant to use explode
  615. * Natasha told what she analyzed to Saturn.
  616.         Rochette:       "The big plant screamed when we burned it."
  617.         Saturn Rosewell:        "...W-What!?"
  618.         Saturn Rosewell:        "Are...Are you sure?"
  619. * Natasha nodded, solemnly.
  620.         Saturn Rosewell:        "...She says the plants have a variable aura, that seems to change and mimic the aura of living things close to it. And...for some reason, it was copying mine."
  621.         Saturn Rosewell:        "That doesn't explain why it was screaming though...or why it picked me."
  622.         Rochette:       "Probably why they glow and bloom around you, though."
  623.         Natasha:        Aura Reader + Intuition to see if I can derive anything else from that.
  624.         Saturn Rosewell:        "I guess, but...why me? ...Why did I get singled out?"
  625.         Chloe Blanchett:        "... if it has an aura, that means we might be able to catch it."
  626.         Rochette:       "I don't know. Hmm...."
  627. Kaorin Sakura whispers: That's good. Give me an education roll as well. Medicine or General. Medicine will give better results though.
  628.         Rochette:       ((would survival or general knowledge apply to knowing anything about this type of plant?))
  629. Kaorin Sakura: (( General could pick up something if high enough. Survival won't. ))
  630. You whisper to Kaorin Sakura: From who, Natasha? Natasha would have a better General, but Saturn would have a better Medicine.
  631. Kaorin Sakura whispers: Natasha. The one using Intuition.
  632.         Natasha:        General Edu (6d6+2):
  633. You whisper to Kaorin Sakura: I totally meant to whisper that ,and forgot.
  634. Kaorin Sakura whispers: These plants seem to be a reactive lifeorm. It grabs from the most advanced lifeform around it and draws as much information from it as possible to further its own evolution. It seems to be drawing from Saturn for her unique physiology and considers her the most advanced life form in the area. Given enough time, they quickly begin to develop intelligence and could quickly acquire self recognition and complex problem solving in an incredibly short time. The information seems stored and when out of range of the 'resource' revert back to a dormant state.
  635. Kaorin Sakura: (( Dropped lotsa info ))
  636. * Natasha gasped!
  637.         Saturn Rosewell:        "Did you figure it out, Natasha?"
  638. * Natasha nodded, but wasn't smiling. Rather than talking, she put a finger to her forehead and told Saturn another way. (Telepath)
  639.         Chloe Blanchett:        Chloe recalled Nega, who wasn't providing any light at the moment. She didn't want to keep her pokemon needlessly exposed after last time.
  640. * Saturn Rosewell gasped also, covering her mouth. For a split second, the color vanished from her eyes.
  641.         Saturn Rosewell:        "L-Let's get out of here..."
  642.         Chloe Blanchett:        "What is it?
  643.         Saturn Rosewell:        "I'll tell you once we're out of this cave..."
  644. * Saturn Rosewell started hurrying towards the exit, still carrying the unconscious woman.
  645.         Rochette:       Rochette and Roland start moving back to the way they first entered the cave.
  646.         Chloe Blanchett:        ((Do we need to get through the plants?))
  647.         Saturn Rosewell:        (Don't think so. Natasha nuked the big one.)
  648. Kaorin Sakura:  They're still small size and can be avoided.
  649. Avara:  brb
  650. Kaorin Sakura:  The one actually blocking the exit is now dead and the size of a pin.
  651.         Chloe Blanchett:        Chloe ran after, starting to get concerned at how coated she had been earlier.
  652.         Saturn Rosewell:        When they were safely out and away from the cave, Saturn explained.
  653. Kaorin Sakura:  You can make it back to the cavern start. (Where you all began from that perfect hole in the cave floor).
  654.         Saturn Rosewell:        "Okay, so according to Natasha, those plant things react to aura and try to copy it. Natasha says they try to draw off the smartest one nearby. If left to themselves for a while, they could actually develop intelligence and even develop their own kind of brain."
  655.         Saturn Rosewell:        "I don't know why they thought I was the smartest, but I didn't want them to start feeding off my brain any longer - that's why I hurried out."
  656.         Rochette:       "I... don't know if I should be relieved or insulted that they didn't try to copy me when you left."
  657.         Strange Girl:   Strange Girl squirms and groans in Saturn's arms, "Uhh-hhnnn...seconds...march into the past...the moments pass...a-and just like that...they're gone..." Her voice cracks in her unconscious state, but it almost is like she's trying to sing.
  658.         Saturn Rosewell:        "Either way it's just plain creepy...
  659.         Chloe Blanchett:        "O-oh..." Chloe seemed bewildered. She knew she probably wasn't the brightest, she was pretty average at everything, but being told point blank was a strange thing to hear.
  660.         Natasha:        "Ze wordt wakker!"
  661.         Saturn Rosewell:        "I know I'm not that smart. I just don't know why they chose me..."
  662.         Rochette:       ((can it be presumed that roland got everyone up out of the caverns safely?))
  663. Strange Girl: (( You can make that move now, if you like. ))
  664.         Chloe Blanchett:        "There are different kinds of smarts. You might just have the one they are drawn to."
  665.         Rochette:       "Well, most of what I do is body work, basically."
  666.         Roland:         Roland will ferry people up two by two, starting with blondelle and the Strange Woman.
  667.         Saturn Rosewell:        "Maybe, but...I'm just...average. Perfectly average in everything."
  668.         Chloe Blanchett:        "A well balanced diet." Chloe joked.
  669.         Rochette:       "Unless you have a bad perspective on your own abilities."
  670. Strange Girl: (( You all can make it to the cave. The time spent thus far since the game began will be pushing 3 hours. ))
  671. Avara:  that would be appreciated
  672.         Chloe Blanchett:        "Nylora? We found someone. And... we're pretty well beaten. We're going to rest for a while before we try going down there again."
  673.         Nylora:         "W-What happened to you?!"
  674.         Saturn Rosewell:        "I'm really not all that special... Really..."
  675.         Rochette:       "The so-called god of this place confirmed that your sisters were still down there shortly into our journey. We busted one out. Blondelle set off an explosion."
  676.         Rochette:       "You can thank Chloe for making sure we double-checked to make sure your sister survived."
  677.         Chloe Blanchett:        "We almost turned back, but Saturn ran back to check the area and she found her."
  678.         Saturn Rosewell:        "All of what Rochette says is true. I think your sister was badly burnt by the explosion, but...it looks like she's still alive, and slowly regaining consciousness too."
  679.         Nylora:         "Selene!" Nylora cried as she rushed over to her, gently helping Saturn move her to the floor.
  680.         Chloe Blanchett:        "Was she one of the two you thought were also found?" Chloe asked, sitting down herself.
  681.         Nylora:         "Thank you all for finding her."
  682.         Saturn Rosewell:        While it's on her mind, Saturn will apply a Potion to Natasha.
  683.         Natasha:        Natasha is healed for 16 HP!
  684.         Rochette:       "Nylora... do you know anything about this knife?" She hands over the knife with the hilt extended towards Nylora.
  685.         Saturn Rosewell:        "Or this sword?" Saturn gestured to Natasha to get out and show the broken sword.
  686.         Nylora:         Nylora nods to Chloe, "Yes. She's a Songstress. Her power is in weaving aura in voice."
  687.         Chloe Blanchett:        "Wow... that's amazing! She was signing such haunting songs when we were searching."
  688.         Nylora:         Nylora seemed to pre-occupied about Selene's condition and glanced to the weapons, "Relics of a time long since past."
  689.         Nylora:         Nylora blinks and turns to Chloe immediately, "She...was singing? Why? What was she saying?"
  690.         Rochette:       "Nothing magical or secret about them, I guess? Hm." She pockets the knife. "I'll get it repaired later."
  691.         Saturn Rosewell:        "You can run, but you can't hide...I will always, always find you..."
  692.         Saturn Rosewell:        "Something like that."
  693.         Saturn Rosewell:        "I don't know why she was singing those things. It was a bit creepy."
  694. * Natasha packages the sword up again.
  695.         Nylora:         Nylora narrowed her eyes and then looked down, "I...don't know either. She wouldn't sing if she weren't performing a miracle of some sort. But those cords of transcendential aura makes...no sense to me. I've not heard them before."
  696.         Rochette:       "Wasn't she saying something on the way up, too?"
  697.         Saturn Rosewell:        "Seconds....march into the past...the moments pass...and just like that, they're gone."
  698.         Chloe Blanchett:        "Something about time, seconds, moments, going by. I was distracted so I didn't hear."
  699.         Saturn Rosewell:        "That's what she mumbled on the way up."
  700.         Nylora:         Nylora blinks and rubs her eyes, "...I recognize that."
  701.         Nylora:         Nylora gently caresses Selene, "...Are you the reason everyone petrified...?"
  702.         Nylora:         "If you need to rest, maybe it would be best to do it in a civilized area? A place where you can rest easily?"
  703.         Saturn Rosewell:        "Probably, but we still have these caves to explore, if there are any more."
  704.         Rochette:       "We don't really know of one that's not going to be a pain to get to and back from."
  705.         Chloe Blanchett:        "If she's trying to sing a petrification song as she wakes up, that might not be a good idea either." Chloe shifted uncomfortably.
  706.         Saturn Rosewell:        "Though we could double back to Fairview if we have to, but...I'd rather not have to make more than one trip to here."
  707.         Nylora:         "It's not a petrification song. It's moves time. Causes our guards to petrify more quickly."
  708.         Saturn Rosewell:        "A song of aging?"
  709.         Saturn Rosewell:        "...you might want to have her hold off on that, now that she's free."
  710.         Rochette:       "Her song about trying to find someone hiding... maybe she was trying to find the self-proclaimed god?"
  711.         Nylora:         "I'll make sure."
  712.         Chloe Blanchett:        "... I see! You can't hide from time either! It might be a part of the same song!"
  713.         Nylora:         "What...God? As much as people want to believe, Arceus is no God."
  714.         Rochette:       "No. I told you earlier that someone was claiming to be a god of this place, yes?"
  715.         Rochette:       "A being that manifested its presence as a bunch of orbs of light. The people here were its followers."
  716.         Chloe Blanchett:        Chloe looked shy about her own outburst. "U-um. But we might be able to head back to fairview. We're not very far, and a town might be a good place to rest before coming back here."
  717.         Nylora:         Nylora 's eyes widened as she heard it.
  718.         Rochette:       "I think it was orbs of light, anyway... my head's still a little fuzzy from getting punched by that Hitmonchan a while back."
  719.         Rochette:       "It confirmed that your sisters hadn't escaped and tried to call security on us when it realized we let you out. Talked it into shutting up, but I don't think I got it to ease off the aggression entirely."
  720.         Chloe Blanchett:        "It was reb bubbles of light, they exploded in size and boomed various intimdation...things. But when they went away they didn't go entirely, they were just smaller, more well hidden."
  721.         Rochette:       "Was able to speak the modern tongue of kanto pokemon."
  722.         Nylora:         Nylora sighed, "The only followers there were of Niro. And that may only mean that Niro is still around and well. And now conscious of the on-goings."
  723.         Chloe Blanchett:        "If he's like you, that's very likely."
  724.         Rochette:       "Want to tell us about Niro, then? Saturn, do you think we can keep this place secure to heal up? If not we're going back to Fairview."
  725.         Rochette:       "Chloe, same question."
  726.         Rochette:       "... Remember to factor in the possibility of Blondelle causing trouble."
  727.         Saturn Rosewell:        "I THINK so. I've got enough medical supplies to heal 2 more people up, and I have a few bandages as well."
  728.         Saturn Rosewell:        "If you don't think that'll be enough, we can go back. Natasha can be a light, but she won't be very useful in combat; she's very beat up."
  729.         Chloe Blanchett:        "No one could have predicted that would happen, it's not her fault."
  730. DNA:    (Natasha has 4 injuries at this point, as does Rochette.)
  731.         Nylora:         "We can stay here and I'll inform Selene of you if you decide to leave. She may know of things to help you if supplies are an issue."
  732. Nylora: (( It's after midnight also. : 3 ))
  733.         Rochette:       Rochette hands over a roll of bandages to Saturn. "We'll stay."
  734.         Chloe Blanchett:        "Are you going to stay here even if we go back, Nylora?"
  735.         Chloe Blanchett:        "It' would be a good idea for us to split up like that. And..." Chloe smiled, "I'm really curious about your magic, if you're willing to teach me about it."
  736.         Nylora:         "I can explain it to you when you aren't busy. And we wouldn't go anywhere."
  737.         Rochette:       "Well, we're staying and resting. Sounds like learning time to me. Or sleeping time."
  738. Nylora: (( We can do a rest and I can explain stuff later. ))
  739.         Chloe Blanchett:        (( Okay! ))
  740. Avara:  yes
  741. DNA:    I side with this
  742. Avara:  also, kaorin
  743. Kaorin Sakura:  So, with this: 5 TXP.

  746. Avara:  remind me to ask nylora about what her next sibling does and any identifying marks or traits
  747. Kaorin Sakura:  I'll go ahead and tell you now Selene is identical.
  748. Avara:  so the next sister is also a singer?
  749. Kaorin Sakura:  I meant in appearance.
  750. Avara:  please remind me to ask for something that'd let us not blow up the next one
  751. Kaorin Sakura:  It'll be in this log, so sure.
  752. Kaorin Sakura:  Saving campaign and chat log
  753. Avara is disconnected.
  754. Chloe is disconnected.
  755. DNA:    Doing the same.
  756. Kaorin Sakura:  Waiting then.
  757. Kaorin Sakura:  Let me know when I can close.
  758. DNA:    I can disconnect and save the log.
  759. Kaorin Sakura:  'kay
  760. You have disconnected.
