  7. Avara:  let's see... when last we left off, i believe we were exploring the shrine of amana prison area.
  8. Avara:  ankle-deep in acid armor beedrill that have their lethality dialled up
  9. DNA:    This is true. We also went to the house of Battlemaster Vell and agreed to go after the anklebiter instead of the pollen forest. And yes, that too.
  10. Kaorin Sakura:  I shall open the log.
  11. DNA:    TO THE VAULT!
  12. * DNA Batman scene transition
  13. Kaorin Sakura:  You guys made it to the ruins. : 3
  14. Kaorin Sakura:  Also Natasha has 7.
  15. When you make it to the ruins, you notice that there's four of them. Each an equal distance from each one, in a square shape. Almost like a plaza.
  16. All of the ruins appear to be two floors, intact and covered in overgrowth.
  17. Kaorin Sakura:  Last two big things.
  18. Avara:  7 what?
  19. DNA:    Bandage Berries, I think.
  20. Kaorin Sakura:  Natasha: Now has a total of 7. Recorded in inventory.
  21. Kaorin Sakura:  Which are berries, yes.
  22. Avara:  okay
  23.         Chloe Blanchett:        ((And these are not the ruins we had explored?))
  24. Kaorin Sakura:  You hadn't explored these no. You JUST got to them.
  25. Avara:  these are a whole new set of ruins
  26.         Chloe Blanchett:        Chloe stopped in place with her hands clasped together behind her back. She looked over the three and asked the others in a hush. "Which one?"
  27. DNA:    Hold on; consulting my notes...
  28. Kaorin Sakura whispers: http://www.newgrounds.com/audio/listen/580349
  29.         Saturn Rosewell:        "I'm not sure. They all have creatures in them, but..."
  30.         Saturn Rosewell:        "There's something alive directly beneath us."
  31.         Battlemaster Vell:      Battlemaster Vell shrugs, "I'unno. If left up to me I say we check the one closest and then proceed clockwise until we search the whole place."
  32.         Rochette:       "Does it feel like the sisters do, Saturn?"
  33.         Chloe Blanchett:        "Can you tell how far down? Under this stone or literally around our ankles?"
  34. You whisper to Kaorin Sakura: Intu+Mystic Senses to see if the 1 center aura far below them matches that of the sisters. Also, how far down it is! (3d6+1) 10
  35. You whisper to Kaorin Sakura: Whoops, forgot to GM that. Here's a reroll if appropriate:
  36.         Saturn Rosewell:        "Trying..."
  37.         Saturn Rosewell:        "I can't believe I'm doing this..."
  38. Battlemaster Vell whispers: You recognize the central one below you to be the sisters though you aren't sure how far below it is.
  39. You whisper to Kaorin Sakura: Do I have a general idea? Like between X and Y metres below?
  40.         Rochette:       "Don't think about what you're doing. Just think about doing it."
  41. Battlemaster Vell whispers: If you had to guesstimate, very far down. More so, it seems, than the elevator to the other one.
  42.         Battlemaster Vell:      o.o
  43.         Saturn Rosewell:        "It's her. And she's really far down. I don't know how far, but...probably further than the elevator."
  44.         Saturn Rosewell:        "And I know it's keeping us alive, but...I've essentially been reduced to a radar."
  45.         Saturn Rosewell:        "I'll have time to think about how degrading that is once we're out of here."
  46.         Battlemaster Vell:      "Like a Pok√©radar? I had a friend that made one of those before."
  47.         Saturn Rosewell:        "Like a...life radar."
  48.         Battlemaster Vell:      "Except it was programmed for anything that didn't touch the ground."
  49.         Saturn Rosewell:        "I'm involuntarily sensing living beings."
  50.         Rochette:       "It's not degrading, in my opinion. You've been more helpful down here than I have."
  51.         Battlemaster Vell:      "Well that's way more useful!"
  52.         Saturn Rosewell:        "Key word: involuntarily."
  53.         Battlemaster Vell:      "If I could carry you in my pocket, I would."
  54.         Saturn Rosewell:        "..."
  55.         Natasha:        "Hey, handen weg!"
  56.         Rochette:       "Do you think you could tell if one of these ruins has a stairway, via sensing enemy units travelling through them?"
  57.         Battlemaster Vell:      Battlemaster Vell glances briefly to Natasha.
  58.         Saturn Rosewell:        "Sigh...I could TRY..."
  59. You whisper to Kaorin Sakura: Intu as Rochette requested. Use the previous check. Or, if you require a new one, use this:
  60.         Chloe Blanchett:        Chloe frowned, "You... you don't have to. I have no problem looking around."
  61.         Rochette:       "If you don't want to, we can do as Vell said to check the ruins. Now we know what to look for."
  62. Battlemaster Vell whispers: Given that all the sources are stationary, you aren't able to gauge such a thing. However, based on the sheer size of the buildings, you'd guess there are staircases. Each buildings looks to be two stories.
  63. You whisper to Kaorin Sakura: All of them? And do the stories extend above or below the ground?
  64. Battlemaster Vell whispers: Above. Looks to be a ground level and a level 1 to each building.
  65.         Saturn Rosewell:        "Well...they're not moving. I would guess they all have staircases, and 2 floors total."
  66.         Saturn Rosewell:        "But I can't tell what really leads down as they're not moving and staircases aren't alive."
  67.         Chloe Blanchett:        "We should start with the left then, if we're going to go clockwise."
  68.         Rochette:       "Right. Left, closest to the path we came in on."
  69.         Natasha:        "Hey, ik heb een idee!"
  70.         Battlemaster Vell:      Battlemaster Vell glances briefly to Natasha.
  71.         Saturn Rosewell:        "Wat is het, Natasha?"
  72.         Battlemaster Vell:      Battlemaster Vell glances briefly to Saturn.
  73.         Natasha:        "Wat als de ingang is onder het water en kunnen we het niet zien op dit moment?"
  74.         Saturn Rosewell:        "...!!"
  75.         Saturn Rosewell:        "Chloe!"
  76.         Battlemaster Vell:      "Do...you guys know what they're saying?"
  77.         Chloe Blanchett:        Chloe looked over the water as the two began to talk, "Hmm... dangerous idea... more dangerous if we're not sure..." She said to herself. She looked up sharply as she heard her name, "What?"
  78.         Saturn Rosewell:        "Keep your eyes peeled. I want you to see if you can find any openings that lead below. Natasha just had an idea that the entrance is somewhere under this water!"
  79.         Saturn Rosewell:        "If only we had a way to drain it..."
  80. * Saturn Rosewell turned to Vell.
  81.         Chloe Blanchett:        "This water is clouded, and I don't know what it's clouded with. ... considering the explosion last time, maybe we could find a high place and test it for flamability?"
  82.         Saturn Rosewell:        "I'm not from around here, and neither is Natasha. We speak in our native tongue to each other."
  83.         Battlemaster Vell:      "Of course. Right."
  84.         Saturn Rosewell:        "...if you plan to ignite this water, we are getting as far above it as physically possible."
  85.         Chloe Blanchett:        Chloe laughed sheepishly, "I don't know what they're saying when they get into deep conversation, but I think there's a root language in common because I can understand Natasha sometimes, when she says something short."
  86.         Battlemaster Vell:      Battlemaster Vell reaches down and scoops up the murky water before letting it run from his hands. He holds it up to the others to show that the water runs clean off his hands.
  87.         Rochette:       "Hmm..."
  88.         Battlemaster Vell:      "If my experience with explosions says anything, this isn't flammable but I'd love to be proven wrong."
  89.         Chloe Blanchett:        Chloe shook her head, "It was a bad idea. If there's oil or something flamable in the water, it wouldn't stop burning for days."
  90.         Saturn Rosewell:        "We ran into exploding fog, reactive plants, and pollen that saps strength."
  91.         Saturn Rosewell:        "Flammable water? Wouldn't put it past."
  92.         Rochette:       "Is it black naturally or is it a result of darkness, though?" She looks to Saturn, "Ask Natasha to half-submerge while glowing." She then resumed her watch for the Anklebiter.
  93.         Battlemaster Vell:      Battlemaster Vell glances to Chloe, "Ah! Point. We'd be killed by the smoke."
  94.         Saturn Rosewell:        "Half-submerge...while glowing?"
  95.         Saturn Rosewell:        "You're not using her as live bait, are you!?"
  96.         Rochette:       "Testing to see if she can illuminate the water to search for the opening."
  97.         Saturn Rosewell:        "All right, but the instant she sees trouble she's jumping out."
  98. * Saturn Rosewell relayed it to Natasha.
  99.         Rochette:       "Indeed. I don't like doing this, but we're somewhat lacking in options."
  100. * Natasha was initially reluctant. After all, it's water. But after a bit of convincing, she relented.
  101. Battlemaster Vell: (( BRB sec ))
  102. * Natasha rolled up the cuffs of her trousers enough to stand in the water, halfway up, still glowing.
  103.         Natasha:        (I will now wait until GM returns)
  104.         Chloe Blanchett:        Chloe takes her hand net and holds it at the rim. She begins to walk across the floor, dragging and poking at the water-cloaked ground with the handle of the net. She notes the texture of the ground, how solid it feels. She would stop to investigate any odd grooves, handles or anything that feels like like it echoes when hit. Using perception to precieve with her sense of touch.
  105.         Natasha:        Natasha's also using Intuition + Aura Reader to sense things nearby (4d6+4)! If something gets close enough to her, she's jumping right out.
  106. As Natasha submerges parts of her body glowing the waters she's in does indeed glow though the light she radiates underwater appears as colourful as a rainbow.
  107. Rochette: (( how much distance does it light up around her? ))
  108. Battlemaster Vell: (( 2.5m ))
  109.         Chloe Blanchett:        "Hmmm..." Chloe takes a moment to observe any possible waterflow. Perception.
  110.         Natasha:        "Ooh~!" Natasha was impressed at the pretty lights surrounding her. Perhaps it was the water itself that was refracting the light?
  111. Battlemaster Vell whispers: Natasha can notice several patches of aura though they're not immediately near you nor are they moving. Just sort of 'around' the ruins you're at.
  112. Battlemaster Vell whispers: But definitely part of the waters.
  113.         Chloe Blanchett:        "I've found some spots that feel denser, like the water resists my movements more." Chloe noted, though she hadn't any idea what that might mean.
  114. You whisper to Kaorin Sakura: Same location as the ruins themselves, or elsewhere?
  115. Battlemaster Vell whispers: Around the ruins. Not the same ones Saturn saw.
  116.         Natasha:        "Ik denk dat ze de dingen die een deel van het water werd."
  117. Battlemaster Vell whispers: Like, the 4 ruins create a square shape and these auras are around this square.
  118.         Chloe Blanchett:        She consulted her general knowledge for such information 8 But didn't consider much further. Advanced sciences weren't an area of expertise for her.
  119.         Saturn Rosewell:        "Natasha's sensing some life that seems to be actually part of the water itself."
  120.         Chloe Blanchett:        ((Forgot the GM tag, rerolling if wanted ))
  121.         Rochette:       Rochette kept looking around for signs of movement in the water.
  122.         Saturn Rosewell:        "Like something melting into it."
  123.         Rochette:       "Do you know of anything that can do that?"
  124.         Chloe Blanchett:        "Aha!"
  125.         Natasha:        Gen Edu (for Rochette's question)
  126.         Saturn Rosewell:        Pokemon edu for the same
  127.         Chloe Blanchett:        Chloe walked to the center of the four ruins. "I think there is a leak here. Maybe not big, but water is very much moving downward." Chloe leaned in to the spot, reaching in the water with her arm and using her bare fingers to feel around the area. Perception Check.
  128. Battlemaster Vell whispers: Natasha: Some Pokemon can turn to liquid.
  129. Saturn: Nope!
  130.         Natasha:        "Sommige Pokemon kan veranderen in vloeistof."
  131.         Natasha:        "Dat is waarschijnlijk wat ik voel!"
  132.         Saturn Rosewell:        "Some Pokemon can turn into liquid, huh..."
  133.         Saturn Rosewell:        "Houd uw ogen op hen, Natasha. We willen niet dat ze aan te vallen."
  134. * Natasha winked and saluted to Saturn!
  135.         Chloe Blanchett:        "There is a grate here." Chloe said. "It might be rusted, or trapped, it felt a bit sharp and I don't want to cut myself to find out."
  136.         Rochette:       "That's... not good news. Hm. Vell, do you think the Biter could do that? Saturn, have Natasha help Chloe investigate that grate please."
  137.         Natasha:        "Zien! Ik wist dat er een ingang onder water!"
  138. * Natasha went over to where Chloe was, slowly, so as not to attract much attention.
  139. * Natasha investigates! What check would that require? (I'm unsure.)
  140.         Battlemaster Vell:      "I've never seen it do such a thing myself but if it disappeared using this technique in this place it'd have the perfect stealth technique."
  141.         Rochette:       Rochette stayed close to Natasha.
  142. Battlemaster Vell: (( Perception ))
  143. * Saturn Rosewell was nearby to Natasha as always.
  144. Rochette: (( just natasha being close would shed light on it, but perception to see any weaknesses, etc etc ))
  145.         Chloe Blanchett:        Chloe smiled to Natasha, giving a light curtsy.
  146.         Natasha:        Perception it is! too bad it's 1d6+2
  147.         Chloe Blanchett:        Chloe assists Natasha! ((Roll twice, add +3 to the second))
  148.         Natasha:        Second roll (1d6+2+3)
  149. Battlemaster Vell whispers: Natasha is able to give some rainbow illumination, which admittedly impairs vision more than it enhances it, but she's able to see the circular metal grate in the center of the four ruins. She can't see any lever, switch or device that could open the grate and it seems to expand far beyond what her illumination can provide.
  150.         Natasha:        "Wow. Dit raspen is ENORM."
  151.         Saturn Rosewell:        "Denk je dat je een schakelaar op de rand te vinden?"
  152.         Saturn Rosewell:        "Ik kan het proberen!"
  153. DNA:    oops
  154.         Natasha:        "Ik kan het proberen!"
  155. DNA:    I hate it when I do that
  156. * Natasha flew outward trying to look for the edge of the grate. It was really big so it might take some walking. (If it's more than halfway towards any of the 4 corner ruins, though, she'll stop.)
  157.         Saturn Rosewell:        Otherwise, Saturn will go with her around its edge looking for a mechanism to unlock it. Perception (2d6+2)
  158.         Saturn Rosewell:        "We're looking for some kind of switch or gate or whatever on this grate so we can get past it."
  159.         Saturn Rosewell:        "There's got to be some opening, even if it's small..."
  160. Battlemaster Vell whispers: At the moment where Natasha would stop is right when she finds the edge and it appears that the grate is of a circular shape.
  161.         Saturn Rosewell:        (Is this a grate water can get through, or no?)
  162. You whisper to Kaorin Sakura: Huh. That's EXACTLY how I imagined the grate would be, actually!
  163. Battlemaster Vell whispers: Saturn's attempt to find a mechanism finds nothing of the sort.
  164. Battlemaster Vell: (( Nope. ))
  165.         Chloe Blanchett:        "If it's big, then the water pressure will be insane if we try to open it. And the water blasting downward from the entire rest of the cave will only make it harder to get down and get back out. Not to mention annoy whatever is lurking around and used to the water as a habitat."
  166.         Chloe Blanchett:        Chloe crossed her arms. "... if we find some stone bricks we could try and seal off a section. Then scoop out the water and cut a hole to get to whatever is under us."
  167.         Battlemaster Vell:      Battlemaster Vell watches all of you and then looks to the ground, "Y'know, I'd have thought these ruins were built in a time before all this water was here but this thing suggests that it was made with it in mind."
  168.         Rochette:       "Hm." Rochette looks around to check for anything securing down the grate. Bolts, locks, etc.
  169.         Saturn Rosewell:        "Darn. Didn't find anything."
  170. Battlemaster Vell: (( So, will that be with Natasha as a light source? Are you using Perception? ))
  171.         Saturn Rosewell:        "Maybe this grate is large enough that it can be opened in sections, with little doors in each?"
  172. * Natasha is ALWAYS ready to lend a light source if requested!
  173. * Natasha strikes a pose.
  174. Avara:  if natasha and the others are willing, sure.
  175. Avara:  perception
  176.         Chloe Blanchett:        Chloe turned to Saturn, "Um, how do you politely ask Natasha if she can come over and glow? I feel bad just waving her over any time I need something, I would like to be able to verbally appreciate it."
  177.         Saturn Rosewell:        "Well, how do you want to phrase your request?"
  178.         Saturn Rosewell:        "Natasha come here, Natasha I need some light, Natasha you are an awesome kickass lantern and I request your assistance?"
  179. Rochette: (( does the grate look like it'd be painful to stand on? ))
  180.         Chloe Blanchett:        Chloe thought on that a moment. "Natasha, could you please light this up for me? Thank you."
  181.         Rochette:       Rochette looks over to Chloe. "What're you having her light up?" She starts walking to the center of the grate.
  182.         Saturn Rosewell:        "In that case, you would have her say..."
  183. * Saturn Rosewell looked to Chloe, then to Natasha.
  184.         Saturn Rosewell:        "Natasha, zou je deze branden voor mij, alsjeblieft? Dank je wel!"
  185. DNA:    *you would say. I don't know how those two extra words got there.
  186. * Natasha obliged, and floated near Chloe!
  187.         Natasha:        Or swam/waded, whatever is appropriate.
  188.         Chloe Blanchett:        "Me? Nothing, I'm using sense of touch myself. But I want it for future reference." Chloe does point down. "The water is leaking through here, but that's all I've found. I didn't want to lose this spot so I haven't looked around.
  189.         Saturn Rosewell:        "You think we could widen this spot at all?" Perception, to look for a method, be it a switch, a layer, a piece of the grate to remove, to expand the opening!
  190.         Battlemaster Vell:      "So, we're standing on a grate. Like a sewer grate? Built to drain the water of this entire place you think?"
  191.         Chloe Blanchett:        Chloe saw Natasha moving closer and sheepishly waved her off, "Ah! P-practice, just practicing sorry!"
  192.         Rochette:       "Alright. At my best guess, the mechanism keeping the grate in place is around here," she says as she gets to where she thinks the center is.
  193. Battlemaster Vell whispers: Your previous search results in thre being no mechanism of any kind.
  194.         Chloe Blanchett:        Chloe looked to Battlemaster as of the obvious had just struck her. "Oh! Maybe! If that's the case then we don't have to worry about the water flowing down, if it's meant to drain things anyway!"
  195. * Natasha moved back a bit.
  196.         Battlemaster Vell:      "Should I just rip the thing up?"
  197.         Saturn Rosewell:        "...!!"
  198.         Chloe Blanchett:        "If you would kindly. I've just started, and my specialty so far doesn't seem to be firepower..."
  199.         Saturn Rosewell:        "If you do, only a small opening, please. We don't want to be sucked up!"
  200.         Chloe Blanchett:        "Lets find a place to brace against, okay?"
  201.         Natasha:        "Vuurkracht is mijn specialiteit!"
  202.         Battlemaster Vell:      Battlemaster Vell moves over to Chloe and points down, "Here?"
  203.         Saturn Rosewell:        "Niet letterlijk."
  204.         Rochette:       "Everyone not doing the breaking can get to one of the ruins and out of the water."
  205.         Saturn Rosewell:        "All the same ruin, of course."
  206.         Chloe Blanchett:        Chloe looked around for something she could climb on, out of the water but not in the ruins. A stray brick or lose bolder. She saw Battlemaster point and corrected him as she needed to. "Right there, yes."
  207. Battlemaster Vell: (( Nothing aside from the glowing berry trees. ))
  208.         Chloe Blanchett:        Chloe hurried to a platform to stand on. Noticing there were none she simply tried to climb up the glowing tree. Athletics.
  209. You have disconnected.
  210. Kaorin Sakura has connected.
  211. Avara has connected.
  212. Chloe has connected.
  213. Kaorin Sakura:  We can go until 1 AM if folks are cool with it.
  214. Chloe:  Roll call! I'm here.
  215. DNA:    Seems good.
  216. Avara:  fine with it.
  217. Chloe:  crap, nothing saved.
  218. DNA:    ?
  219. Kaorin Sakura:  Yeah I didn't save. ;-; Sorry.
  220. Kaorin Sakura:  I saved the log though
  221. Kaorin Sakura:  Which I'll send to DNA
  222. DNA:    I still have maptools up
  223. DNA:    I save my own logs! \o/
  224. Chloe:  That's important. I just did some updates, quick fix.
  225. * DNA will wait to go do the thing he was going to do.
  226. Kaorin Sakura:  So! Where we left off at.
  227. Chloe is able to safely climb atop the glowing, unharvested berry tree. As she does, the waters run clear off of her.
  228. Battlemaster Vell: (( Also I need to check a document. ))
  229. * Saturn Rosewell also goes to a nearby tree (unsure if decided the same tree, or a different one), and climbs slowly up it as well, enough to be far out of the way! Athletics, if necessary. (2d6+2)
  230. * Natasha is just an adorable cheater and floats on up.
  231.         Rochette:       Rochette will attempt to find a place to stand that's within 4m of Battlemaster that isn't in the water.
  232. Saturn can also climb the glowing berry tree, though only halfway up it without falling.
  233. Kaorin Sakura: (( The berry trees are the only thing Rochette. ))
  234.         Rochette:       ((are they within that range?))
  235. Kaorin Sakura whispers: Saturn notices that climbing this tree is more uncomfortable than it should be. She feels unwanted stiffness in her arms and legs.
  236. Kaorin Sakura: (( There's 4 in town. ))
  237.         Rochette:       Rochette will stay next to Battlemaster then, still watching for the anklebiter.
  238.         Saturn Rosewell:        "Ugh...Hurry up!"
  239. You whisper to Kaorin Sakura: Medicine Edu to discern the cause of this.
  240. Kaorin Sakura whispers: You discern that your skin is the cause, almost as if you have scabbed joints.
  241.         Battlemaster Vell:      Battlemaster Vell bends down into the water and grips the grate as best he can. His muscles tighten suddenly as his power increases and he pulls against the grate! You can hear the metal under the water all around groan as he pulls.
  242. You whisper to Kaorin Sakura: So the stiffness is due to my climbing? I can safely discern it's not the cause of the bark or the atmosphere or what have you?
  243. * Natasha covered her ears!
  244. Battlemaster Vell whispers: You can tell its definitely your body causing it, and not some outward source.
  245. Chloe:  Chloe winces at the groaning metal, clinging to the tree tightly.
  246. * Saturn Rosewell clung to the tree, not wanting to let go.
  247.         Battlemaster Vell:      Battlemaster Vell suddenly winces and let's go, pulling his hands from the water. They're cut up in various places and he's bleeding.
  248.         Battlemaster Vell:      Battlemaster Vell has had it's Attack modified by -1 stages.
  249.         Battlemaster Vell:      "Really sturdy whatever it is. And don't like being moved."
  250.         Rochette:       "Did... did the grate grow blades or spikes or something, or was that from what's normally there?"
  251.         Saturn Rosewell:        (Is this an injury?)
  252. Battlemaster Vell whispers: Vell just obtained an injury, yes.
  253.         Saturn Rosewell:        "Maybe there's a way to weaken the metal a bit?"
  254.         Chloe Blanchett:        "It felt sharp when I first found it, I mentioned that, didn't I?"
  255.         Chloe Blanchett:        "I couldn't tell what it was."
  256.         Battlemaster Vell:      "Well, I won't be opening it this way unfortunately."
  257.         Rochette:       Rochette returns to the estimated center of the grate. "Saturn, could you ask Natasha to light up over here?"
  258. * Saturn Rosewell does so, and Natasha heads over.
  259.         Saturn Rosewell:        "Maybe Natasha could burn a hole in the middle of the grate for us to pass through? Then again, fire doesn't really burn underwater..."
  260.         Rochette:       Rochette uses the bonus of light to search for the mechanism securing the grate in place. Perception.
  261.         Chloe Blanchett:        "Unless it does burn, in which case we're in trouble. The water was very rainbow-like in its glow, that's a sign that there simething in it."
  262.         Rochette:       "There's a cylinder here that seems to be the... well, I guess source of the grate?"
  263.         Rochette:       "If we're going to break it, we'll need to break it from here."
  264.         Chloe Blanchett:        Chloe continued to hang from the tree. "But who's going to try this time?"
  265.         Saturn Rosewell:        "Can the cylinder be removed? Broken? Weakened?"
  266.         Rochette:       Rochette kneels down to examine the cylinder, poking it to test its connection to the ground, while also checking for anywhere to, say, put some immortal blood. Though she's not actually doing that.
  267.         Rochette:       Rochette tries punching the cylinder, twice in quick succession. (AC check for crit, pretty sure a cylinder cannot dodge) 6
  268.         Rochette:       5
  269. Kaorin Sakura: (( Both of those hit. ))
  270.         Rochette:       29 normal physical.
  271. There's a slight KINK sound as Rochette punches the cylinder.
  272.         Rochette:       "... I could probably break through it, but it would take... a lot of time. A lot a lot."
  273.         Saturn Rosewell:        "If we had something heavy that would just push down on it, that'd be perfect, though I don't think we have anything like that..."
  274.         Chloe Blanchett:        "Can it be pulled up? Turned? If it's not a button it might be some other kind of switch."
  275.         Battlemaster Vell:      "If it's anything like the grate, I wouldn't try turning it."
  276.         Rochette:       Rochette checks for anything at all that can be done with the cylinder besides breaking it. perception.
  277.         Rochette:       ((if relevant, max push/drag is 400 pounds))
  278.         Rochette:       Rochette stands upright, motions for Natasha to follow, and starts walking across the surface of the grate. As she does, she looks for anything on the surface that would be interactable, like places for hooks to be slid in, grips, etc. "The flat top of the cylinder's the only thing I can really do anything with from here."
  279. * Natasha follows.
  280.         Rochette:       perception
  281.         Chloe Blanchett:        Chloe gets an idea, sending out Nega!
  282.         Nega:   Nega appears in the water.
  283.         Battlemaster Vell:      "I'm not a scholar or anything of ruins but can anything think of what purpose this thing might serve? If we knew that we could probably figure out what to do with it."
  284. * Saturn Rosewell translated for Natasha.
  285.         Rochette:       Rochette walks back to the center and looks to the four ruins. Are they roughly all the same distance from the center?
  286. * Natasha tried to be as smart as possible, attempting to discern the cylinder and grate's purpose! Intu (4d6+4)
  287. DNA:    (They're in a square arrangement, so not sure, but I believe yes)
  288.         Nega:   Nega gooped to where the leak was, and with its slimey body tried to squeeze a peek through.
  289.         Rochette:       "It's barely even touching the edge. The ruins are all perfectly spaced apart from each other, and they're all equally distant from the center. I'm guessing there's a mechanism in each ruin."
  290.         Rochette:       "It might be an elevator, or a seal for the sister's prison. Or both."
  291.         Nega:   Nega returns to the top and slops over to Rochette, burbling in Pokemon Kanto.
  292.         Nega:   Nega shrugged, not knowing what was important about that information, then wobbled back to Chloe.
  293.         Chloe Blanchett:        Chloe recalled Nega.
  294.         Rochette:       "Nega says there's just water under there."
  295.         Saturn Rosewell:        "They imprisoned her...underwater?"
  296.         Rochette:       "I guess."
  297.         Saturn Rosewell:        "In that case..."
  298.         Saturn Rosewell:        "I wonder if there's a way around the grate, or at least a way to drain the water completely..."
  299.         Chloe Blanchett:        "Hm. Well if what you said is right, there might be something in each of these ruins that opens the grate. Maybe once it's open the increased area the water can flow down will give us space to manuever."
  300.         Chloe Blanchett:        "From what it feels like, I think the grate isn't supposed to leak water, and we just found a spot where it was."
  301.         Chloe Blanchett:        Chloe climed down from the tree, obviously things weren't going to drain any time soon. "Either way, right now we're just gawking. If there is no obvious solution the investigation must go on! With no other options we should look at the buildings here." Chloe nodded with an astute smile.
  302.         Rochette:       Rochette heads towards the ruin previously specified.
  303. * Saturn Rosewell climbed down the tree as well, following Rochette.
  304. Kaorin Sakura:  R_R
  305. _O_
  306. R_R
  307. You whisper to Kaorin Sakura: Does Saturn feel stiff any longer, after getting off the tree?
  308. Kaorin Sakura:  I will assume the bottome left R?
  309. Avara:  if bottom middle _ is the path we entered from
  310. Kaorin Sakura:  Yes.
  311. Avara:  yes
  312. Kaorin Sakura whispers: Still stiff. Perhaps she should check her limbs?
  313. You whisper to Kaorin Sakura: Medicine Edu to do so! 11
  314. You whisper to Kaorin Sakura: Crap, forgot to hide it. Here's another if you wish it:
  315. Kaorin Sakura whispers: Also: Saturn's Body gains a -2 penalty and an injury.
  316. Kaorin Sakura:  The injury lowered the Special Defense stat!
  317. Kaorin Sakura whispers: SDEF.
  318. Avara:  ?!
  319.         Saturn Rosewell:        (ow.)
  320. Kaorin Sakura whispers: As Saturn checks her body she can find that her skin is scabbing on its own along the joints of her legs and arms.
  321. Avara:  what happened/
  322. Avara:  ?
  323.         Saturn Rosewell:        I climbed a tree
  324. Avara:  and took an injury?
  325.         Saturn Rosewell:        when I got down from it, yes
  326.         Saturn Rosewell:        "Ow, ow, ow..."
  327. Avara:  thought that one was for me for going towards the ruins for some reason
  328. You whisper to Kaorin Sakura: Any check to hasten recovery? Like acrobatics or something?
  329. Kaorin Sakura whispers: With Saturn's medical knowledge she can assume this is a result of the disease from the slime earlier. And would likely hope that the others aren't showing signs as well.
  330.         Chloe Blanchett:        "Are you okay?" Chloe rushed over.
  331.         Saturn Rosewell:        Nah, you're fine, afaik.
  332.         Rochette:       "Are you okay, Saturn?"
  333.         Saturn Rosewell:        "Yeah, I'm fi--...wait a sec."
  334.         Saturn Rosewell:        "...do we have a Pokemon around that knows Water Gun or something?"
  335.         Rochette:       "I don't."
  336.         Battlemaster Vell:      "Not that it's any clean, but we're sort of knee-deep in water."
  337.         Chloe Blanchett:        Chloe shakes her head.
  338.         Saturn Rosewell:        "...It'll have to do."
  339. * Saturn Rosewell took some of the water in her hands. Making sure it wasn't heavy or murky in her hands (similar to how Vell held it), she began to rub it on her skin.
  340.         Saturn Rosewell:        "I thought I got all that stupid slime off!"
  341.         Rochette:       Rochette sighs, and tries to sneak up to the ruin. stealth
  342. Battlemaster Vell whispers: Ehh. I'll take this as Saturn attempting to treat the disease. Give me a medicine check for treating the disease with a bonus to your roll equal to your medicine rank, because you're a Medic.
  343.         Saturn Rosewell:        "Look, if you guys don't want what just happened to me, you'll want to wash up later."
  344. You whisper to Kaorin Sakura: It kinda is, yeah. I assume that is a 4d6+2+4, (she's Adept) so here you are!
  345.         Chloe Blanchett:        Chloe looks herself over. Perception 12
  346.         Chloe Blanchett:        ((gah, forgot ))
  347.         Saturn Rosewell:        (I've forgot no less than twice tonight; you're fine)
  348.         Rochette:       Rochette takes a moment from sneaking to do the same, making sure she's not slimed.
  349. Avara:  kaorin forgets too sometimes
  350. Rochette: (( and obviously so do i ))
  351. Rochette: (( so that's everyone ))
  352.         Saturn Rosewell:        except Jack
  353.         Saturn Rosewell:        cheatr
  354. Battlemaster Vell whispers: Saturn is sure she's treated the disease and that by the end of the day her body would have fought it off. The injury and Body penalty will subside by the day's end.
  355. * DNA heaved a sigh of relief.
  356. * Saturn Rosewell heaved a bigger sigh of relief.
  357.         Saturn Rosewell:        I hate it when I forget to impersonate
  358.         Rochette:       Rochette resumes being the sneak king.
  359.         Chloe Blanchett:        "I believe I'm good... I thought that fire cleaned it off well." Chloe didn't seem convinced, but turned her attention back to the ruin. Chloe waited for Rochette to either come out or give a single that it's clear.
  360.         Saturn Rosewell:        "These scabs should probably heal by day's end, thankfully..."
  361.         Rochette:       Rochette sneakily looks into the ruins, trying to move as slowly and silently as possible.
  362.         Saturn Rosewell:        "After we free whatsherface, we might want to take some of this water back just in case."
  363.         Chloe Blanchett:        "Is there something special about it?" Chloe didn't have much chemical or medicinal knowledge, but she pondered on it anyway as she examined the water. Medicine
  364.         Saturn Rosewell:        "No, it's just water, as far as I can tell. The slime dissolves on contact with water completely, falling right off."
  365.         Saturn Rosewell:        "Though, lemme check." Medicine Edu to make sure that the water is, in fact, water, and not dangerous to health! (4d6+2)
  366. Battlemaster Vell whispers: The water isn't as safe to drink as filtered water but appears safer to drink than river water. Assuming of course, you aren't drinking a Pokemon.
  367. Kaorin Sakura:  Just to clarify, only Rochette is entering the southwestern ruin?
  368.         Saturn Rosewell:        I'll be following close behind her if necessary
  369. You whisper to Kaorin Sakura: Any info about toxicity?
  370.         Chloe Blanchett:        "... all I know is that it's not normal." Chloe shivered, remembering how innocently she had treated the mind-stealing plants before, and how similar this water may or may not be.
  371. Avara:  seems that way. rochette is trying to get a look in without alerting residents
  372.         Chloe Blanchett:        Chloe is waiting outside the door, a few paces.
  373.         Saturn Rosewell:        though will not actually be entering. Natasha is sitting on my hat.
  374. Kaorin Sakura whispers: It doesn't appear poisonous to Humans or Pokemon. But does seem to have an odd effect on plantlife, if the berry trees that use it as a water source is any indication.
  375.         Rochette:       Rochette will continue to move slowly and silently, using sound as well as sight and scent to try and detect anyone or anything in the room. perception. (also brb)
  376.         Rochette:       (back)
  377. Player "Intu" is not connected.
  378. You whisper to Kaorin Sakura: Intu etc to sense if anything in that room is moving.
  379.         Rochette:       Rochette stays still and watches the figure, looking for any movements--twitches, rise and fall of the chest, etc.
  380. Kaorin Sakura whispers: You can sense one on the same floor as Rochette and another upstairs. It doesn't appear to be moving.
  381. You whisper to Kaorin Sakura: It or they?
  382. Kaorin Sakura whispers: One on ground level and one upstairs. Neither are moving.
  383.         Rochette:       Rochette thinks, and tries to slowly move towards the statue, trying to keep it between her and the figure once possible. stealth
  384.         Chloe Blanchett:        Chloe whispered to Saturn, "There'd be some sound if she got in trouble, right?"
  385.         Saturn Rosewell:        "I think so...I can't sense any movement in there..."
  386. Kaorin Sakura: (( Sorry food suddenly beeped. I'm back ))
  387. Kaorin Sakura:  ...
  388. You whisper to Kaorin Sakura: Continuing to monitor ruins, also sensing for any minute sounds. Using same Intu check as before.
  389. Kaorin Sakura:  Gimme a reroll, Rochette.
  390.         Chloe Blanchett:        "If there was sleep powder, or hypnosis... that might be quiet."
  391. Kaorin Sakura whispers: Perception for hearing.
  392. Player "Perception" is not connected.
  393. You whisper to Kaorin Sakura: Perception 2d6+2
  394.         Saturn Rosewell:        "Yeah, but I'd sense movement... I don't sense any movement at all, not even minute."
  395. Kaorin Sakura whispers: You can hear breathing other than Rochette's in the ruin and Rochette sneaking less stealthily than your ears are able to pick up. (You can hear Rochette)
  396.         Rochette:       Rochette stops at the statue, and takes some time to examine it.
  397.         Chloe Blanchett:        Chloe nodded, falling back to silence.
  398. Avara:  who has the blood vials?
  399.         Chloe Blanchett:        ((They were your potion bottles, so that might actually be you))
  400.         Saturn Rosewell:        ^
  401. Avara:  okay. just wanted to make sure.
  402.         Saturn Rosewell:        (Technically 1 of mine and 1 of hers, but we gave them both to Rochette.)
  403.         Rochette:       Rochette opens the vials, putting a drop of each into the flask. Then closes them both quickly. stealth to do so unseen.
  404. DNA:    dat crit stealth tho
  405. The statue's runes suddenly go from blue to red and it activate, standing up straight and stepping over Rochette. It turns around and settles into the two footprints and bends down, holding the stone flask in the same position forward. There's suddenly a loud click.
  406. DNA:    Can we, outside the ruins, see any of that?
  407. Kaorin Sakura whispers: You can suddenly hear a loud inhuman shriek and stone being torn from rock and landing onto the stone floor.
  408.         Rochette:       Rochette raises an eyebrow and holds her breath, before trying to sneak over to the stairs.
  409.         Saturn Rosewell:        O_O
  410. There's a loud click behind Chloe and Saturn as the grate groans and twists.
  411.         Natasha:        O_O
  412.         Chloe Blanchett:        Chloe covers her ears, her head sinking to her shoulders, "Eee! U-um... I think she found something...?"
  413.         Saturn Rosewell:        "Fairly sure she did."
  414. There's a loud draining sound as the water begins quickly being sucked up into the center of the area.
  415. Kaorin Sakura: (( Saturn and Chloe give Athletic or Acrobatic checks to grab hold of something or be swept away. ))
  416.         Saturn Rosewell:        Are we being sucked in with it? If s-
  417. Avara:  battlemaster, help them!
  418.         Saturn Rosewell:        (2d6+2) (doesn't matter which, they're both the same)
  419.         Chloe Blanchett:        Chloe snatches for the tree again! She grabs for Saturn! ((Saturn rolls twice with +3 to second))
  420. * Natasha is a cheater and floats, but will be ready to grab Saturn just in case!
  421.         Chloe Blanchett:        Chloe makes an athletics
  422.         Saturn Rosewell:        WAit, that should be a 2d6+0. So, subtract 2 from whatever that was.
  423.         Saturn Rosewell:        Repeat roll as 2d6+0+3:
  424. Kaorin Sakura:  Reroll with that 3 from Chloe.
  425.         Rochette:       Rochette then moves to go outside the ruins, staying on land as she sees what she caused. Oops. stealth
  426. Saturn and Chloe are able to grab hold of the glowing berry tree to keep from being swept away by the sudden current.
  427. Kaorin Sakura:  And Vell, whom I forgot to move before all this happened...
  428. Kaorin Sakura:  The GM should be SOMEWHAT NICE!
  429. Kaorin Sakura:  Okay, we'll say Vell was also by the ruins.
  430. DNA:    \o/
  431. Vell grabs hold of the ruin entrance to keep himself from being swept away as well.
  432.         Chloe Blanchett:        "Battlemaster!" Chloe shouted!
  433.         Chloe Blanchett:        She sighed in relief as she noticed everyone was safe.
  434.         Rochette:       Rochette winces at the shout, and holds a finger up to her lips in the quintessential shushing gesture.
  435.         Chloe Blanchett:        Hopefully her voice was drowned by the rushing water.
  436. Within moments, the water that once flooded the area to nearly your knees was gone and you could clearly see the glossy stone floor.
  437. Rochette: (( did rochette get out unheard? ))
  438. Kaorin Sakura: (( I saw you move to the stairs, not the exit. ))
  439. Avara:  scroll up.
  440. Avara:  i moved to the exit after the stairs
  441. Avara:  had a roll in there.
  442. Kaorin Sakura:  Ah, I see.
  443. Kaorin Sakura:  Yes.
  444. Kaorin Sakura:  Neither of the two creatures follow Rochette out.
  445.         Rochette:       Rochette continues to move as quietly as she can, bowing her head apologetically to the others before moving over to the place the grate was before.
  446. Kaorin Sakura whispers: You can see tha tboth of the things in the ruins are now at the ground level.
  447.         Chloe Blanchett:        "G-good work." Chloe said, still shaken.
  448. You whisper to Kaorin Sakura: What things? Oh, you mean the life?
  449. Kaorin Sakura whispers: Yep
  450. DNA:    "I think the one upstairs moved downstairs..."
  451.         Saturn Rosewell:        "Let's head back over to the grate."
  452.         Rochette:       "Yeah. They track by sound."
  453.         Chloe Blanchett:        Chloe got to her feet, shaking the fear from her legs she walked to the grate.
  454. When the four of you return to the grate you can clearly see it now. The metal is thin and blade-like along the grate. It seems to have spun a bit in place to drain the water but hasn't yet descended. You can see scrape marks along the inner wall signaling that it has ascended sometime in its past.
  455.         Rochette:       "Soooo... repeat for the other three? There was a stone flask on a statue. I put a drop of each immortal's blood into it."
  456.         Chloe Blanchett:        "Seems like it. Clockwise, right Battlemaster?" Chloe smiled.
  457.         Battlemaster Vell:      "That's how I'd do it."
  458.         Rochette:       "Alright. Sorry if you guys are getting bored waiting for me. I'll try and throw something out if I need help."
  459.         Saturn Rosewell:        "Hey, at least we're getting somewhere. Better than our ogling at the grate underwater before."
  460.         Chloe Blanchett:        "I'd rather be bored than hurt. What did you find in there?"
  461. You have disconnected.
  462.         Rochette: "Sorry if you're feeling like a radar. Do you sense more of those beings in the next one?"
  463.         Chloe Blanchett: "I thought you would yell if you were in trouble, or call us if there wasn't anyone there."
  464.         Chloe Blanchett: "She said there was something in all of them when we first got here."
  465.         Rochette: "There was a statue with blue runes on it and a stone flask, some boxes, and a female-looking humanoid that gave a distinctly Jinx-like impression. Blind, tracked by sound, and clawed powerfully enough to rend stone when it heard the click. Didn't detect or hit me though."
  466.         Chloe Blanchett: "..." Chloe crossed her arms. "If they responded to that click, maybe they're just guarding their territory, but they might be trying to destroy switches before they're used. If that's the case... stealth might be the way to go for all of the buildings." Chloe looked to Rochette, "If you sneak in, we'll wait out here and watch for a pokeball flash. If you get into trouble we'll run right in."
  467.         Rochette: "That sounds fair, yeah. I'll be able to use the empty pokeballs I have for distractions if necessary."
  468.         Kaorin Sakura: Calling it here for the record
  469.         Kaorin Sakura: 3 Trainer XP
  470.         Kaorin Sakura: 28 PKMN EXP to 1 PKMN per Trainer
  471. DNA:    I couldn't get back in and due to connectivity I couldn't reconnect, but conveniently it was by quitting time, so the remainder of what happened has been C/P'd here.
