  5. DNA:    58.4
  6. Avara has connected.
  7.         Nidorina:       Nidorina loses 0 hit points.
  8. Trulhammaren has connected.
  9. Trulhammaren:   I guess its time for to stop playing dominion then
  10. DNA:    Apparently!
  11. Trulhammaren:   which is a good thing I guess. I was getting my but kicked
  12. DNA:    ...and of course now I'm stuck in WarioWare.
  13. Kaorin Sakura:  Alright. So!
  14. Kaorin Sakura:  Did people come to terms on what to do and how to do it?
  15. Avara:  plan was go see doctor.
  16. Chloe:  ((passing on capture, anyone else interested?))
  17. Avara:  i have the only mon i wanted
  18. Trulhammaren:   ((if no one else wants it I wouldn't mind it))
  19. DNA:    I will only go for it if everyone else passes
  20. DNA:    Trul, you are free to it
  21. * Valerie Ylsef flings a pokeblal at the thing?
  22. Kaorin Sakura:  Considering it was a mistake on my part you can just consume a Poke Ball and gain it.
  23.         Valerie Ylsef:  k
  24. Kaorin Sakura:  I'll whisper information to you.
  25. DNA:    It screams in surprise as it is swallowed up by a red light!
  26. Chloe:  after that the plan was to go visit Doctor Norman.
  27. Trulhammaren:   doo doo doo doo doooo doot doo doooo
  28. Kaorin Sakura:  We left last session on a 'figure out what you want to do and how to do it'. So I suggest discussion among the group - though I was hoping that'd have already been done during the week.
  29. Avara:  to be fair, our game group as a whole tends to forget to discuss things between sessions
  30. DNA:    Were there any plans to do anything with the truck or dead bodies, or were we going to tell about them in a civilized area?
  31. * DNA has a short term memory that doesn't extend beyond 3 days.
  32. Avara:  load bodies into truck.
  33. Trulhammaren:   Val's vote is find the damn keys, thorw everything in the truck, head to the doc then continue to town
  34. Avara:  we have the keys.
  35. Trulhammaren:   and by everything I mean the as many bodies as we can
  36. Avara:  drive truck towards town, make a stop by the doctor. make a call or what-have-you to inform the company what happened.
  37. Trulhammaren:   because bounty potential
  38. DNA:    Drive the truck towards town? Which town?
  39. Avara:  the town that hates pokemon.
  40. Trulhammaren:   ^
  41. DNA:    Esterhedge it is.
  42. Chloe:  Is Stone House where the doctor was?
  43. Trulhammaren:   could I get da ownership?
  44. Trulhammaren:   yes
  45. Chloe:  If so, it'll be quicker just to go there. If the region map is accurate we had our battle not far from it.
  46. Avara:  that is the plan yes
  47. Chloe:  So how well does the truck handle off road?
  48. Chloe:  And how harsh is the off road?
  49. Avara:  can leave truck by the road once we're close to the house walking-wise
  50. Chloe:  I think we are.
  51. Kaorin Sakura:  Region Map is accurate.
  52. Avara:  if so, can just walk there.
  53. Avara:  ok.
  54. Avara:  load up truck, go visit doctor
  55. Chloe:  There's a mile or two we could drive, judging by how long it takes us to get from place to place. Then take a sharp right.
  56. Avara:  don't know what the scale is considered to be.
  57. Avara:  kaorin, how long would it take to walk from where we are now to the doctor?
  58. Trulhammaren:   frankly unless it is simply impossible I'd rather just drive the truck 100% of the way
  59. Trulhammaren:   it has a heater
  60. Trulhammaren:   and thus no evil cold weather checks
  61. Kaorin Sakura:  I've been assuming you all have been walking at a casual pace. Fast enough to cover distance but not to tire yourselves. So, at that pace: about 2-hours.
  62. Avara:  how close can we drive without giving away the location of the hidden home?
  63. Kaorin Sakura:  Each square on the map is roughly 2.5 hours of travel time.
  64. DNA:    Wow. That totally only looked like a half-hour journey.
  65. Avara:  and without ruining the truck or anything
  66. Kaorin Sakura:  You can't leave the road if you don't want to damage the truck. That much is certain. Your best bet is to leave it where it is or drive it to town before visiting Stone House.
  67. Kaorin Sakura:  Though, leaving the vehicle unattended leaves it at risk from theft.
  68. Chloe:  Drive one square north, park, take the keys, visit doctor. Pokemon might wake up and get away. Is that the plan?
  69. DNA:    That sounds like an acceptable plan to me - get the truck as close as in range to the stone house (via walking) as possible, visit the doctor to finish business and cure ourselves, then drop the truck off at Hatersville.
  70. Trulhammaren:   sound good
  71. DNA:    ...wow, did I really just say Hatersville? I'm really slipping up with my standards.
  72. Avara:  we could also run to the house instead of our typical pace, to cut down on time
  73. Chloe:  especially because they are unfounded rumors
  74. DNA:    yep
  75. Chloe:  So two votes for drive north a square and walk east for an hour/two.
  76. Avara:  rochette will be keeping the keys on her.
  77. Kaorin Sakura:  Is that's what happening/
  78. Avara:  rob
  79. Avara:  we want to -run-
  80. Avara:  hourly weather checks.
  81. Avara:  drive up the square, then RUN east.
  82. Chloe:  Jog would be better, I can agree to that.
  83. DNA:    I can Diglett
  84. Avara:  how long would a jog take to cover the 1 square distance?
  85. DNA:    1.666666666666666666666666666666667
  86. Chloe:  Walking is 2-3 mph. Long distance jogging around 6.
  87. Kaorin Sakura:  Hm. Chloe, can you translate a job to me in D&D terms?
  88. DNA:    ...Long distance jogging is 6?
  89. Kaorin Sakura:  Jog, rather.
  90. DNA:    weird, I thought it was 4.5.
  91. Chloe:  Could be. In D&D terms, it would be x2 speed.
  92. Chloe:  Hourly exhaustion checks.
  93. DNA:    I imagined it as 1.5x the speed, but that's just me.
  94. Chloe:  Or x3 speed, with checks every 10 minutes, or x4 speed with checks every minute. I'm not possitive on the x3/10 minutes, that's just what I've historically used based off of my experiences running.
  95. Kaorin Sakura:  Description: Fog
  96. Temperature: Cold
  97. High: 32°F (0°C)
  98. Low: 19°F (-8°C)
  99. Relative: Normal
  100. Wind Force: Light
  101. Wind Speed: 8 mph (12 kph)
  102. Fog: Whether in the form of a low-lying cloud or a mist rising from the ground, fog obscures all sight, including darkvision, beyond 1 meter. Using anything besides melee attacks come with a -3 penalty per 4 meters.
  103. Cold: An unprotected character in cold weather (below 40°F) must make a Fortitude check each hour (DC 10, + 1 per previous check) or take DB6 points of ice damage.
  104. A character who takes any ice damage from cold or exposure is beset by frostbite or hypothermia (treat her as slowed and gain 1 injury). These penalties end when the character recovers the ice damage she took from the cold and exposure.
  105. Ice damage from cold or exposure cannot be recovered until the character gets out of the cold and warms up again.
  106. Light Wind: A gentle breeze, having little or no game effect.
  107. Time: February 11th, 1549. 19:35 Wednesday
  108. Kaorin Sakura:  I don't have checks. Just alternating ATK/SATK & DEF/SDEF CS reductions after certain periods.
  109. Kaorin Sakura:  I could probably do checks though and give Fortitude more of a solid presence.
  110. DNA:    Ah, Fortitude. You and your currently non-existent presence.
  111. Chloe:  What are you talking about, Chloe has novice fortitude
  112. Kaorin Sakura:  It exists well-enough I feel. What with disease, toxins and environmental hazard shenanigans.
  113. Avara:  chloe also has clothes that might count as weather protection for this
  114. Kaorin Sakura:  But so: Just to be clear.
  115. Kaorin Sakura:  Load bodies into vehicle, start vehicle and drive north. Exit (with Rochette keeping the keys) and jogging east. Is this what is agreed upon before I do anything?
  116. Avara:  yes
  117. DNA:    Yes, that's right.
  118. Chloe:  Yes
  119.         Chronicler:     When you load up the bodies into the tractor (I assume you will be including the now dead Hippowdon) you notice that the tractor is full of large metal bars. Lead, Steel, Iron and Silver carefully placed along the center of the trailer and held firmly in place by wooden beams.
  120.         Chronicler:     Despite this, you can load up the bodies near the roll-up door without much concern and securely lock the door in place.
  121.         Chloe Blanchett:        Chloe finds a spot to sit, feeling uneasy so close to the unconcious bodies.
  122.         Saturn Rosewell:        Saturn huddles up in a corner somewhere, by herself, having recalled Natasha and still trying to get over her being so cold.
  123.         Chronicler:     With Rochette having the keys to the tractor all four of you can easily fit into the truck. It has a driver seat and a passenger seat as well as two beds (one suspended over the other) just behind the seats.
  124.         Chloe Blanchett:        She caught something out of the corner of her eye and gestured for Alsine to come over and take a seat as well.
  125. * Valerie Ylsef flops down on one of the beds
  126.         Chronicler:     With a vehicle driving just up the road only takes about 20-minutes and you can do so without incident.
  127. * Rochette will park on the side of the road, letting everyone out before she locks everything on the car, putting the keys in her pocket.
  128.         Alsine Kolstad:         Alsine had sat outside, and regreted it. Half baffled by the vehicle, half frozen from the wind, Alsine curled her hole-filled wings around herself in an attempt to warm up.
  129. Avara:  to clarify. locking the truck. locking the cab doors, anything else on it. locking the trailer, every way possibel.
  130. Chronicler:     Moving to the east at a light jog to Stone House will leave you fatigued (your choice of -1 ATK&SATK CS or -1 DEF*SDEF CS).
  131. Avara:  there is no lock that is not locked.
  132.         Chloe Blanchett:        "A-ah... umm.. ben ju.. erm... ben ji oke?" Chloe asked the cold looking Alsine.
  133. Avara:  i'll take the defense stages.
  134. * Saturn Rosewell chooses to lose Attack stages.
  135.         Saturn Rosewell:        "...wha...?" Saturn glances over at hearing Chloe speak.
  136. * Valerie Ylsef is cold and Jordy is jammed up a little lowering her overall attack capability
  137.         Chronicler:     You reach Stone House without incident and find yourselves standing at the house at the hill.
  138.         Valerie Ylsef:  Valerie Ylsef has had it's Attack modified by -1 stages.
  139.         Valerie Ylsef:  Valerie Ylsef has had it's Sp.Attack modified by -1 stages.
  140.         Saturn Rosewell:        Saturn Rosewell has had it's Attack modified by -1 stages.
  141.         Saturn Rosewell:        Saturn Rosewell has had it's Sp.Attack modified by -3 stages.
  142.         Alsine Kolstad:         "Fijn." Alsine assured.
  143. * Rochette knocks on the door.
  144. * Rochette is panting heavily, hunched over a bit and shaking as the cold feels like it's seeping in after the jog.
  145.         Chronicler:     To remind you: The Stone House is a home within a large hill. There are no doors. There is a ladder that leads down into the hill. The ladder itself is 14-meters.
  146.         Rochette:       ((ok. house -on- a hill is a bit misleading))
  147.         Chloe Blanchett:        Chloe climbed down the ladder with the others, alsine floating down after everyone else had. The warmth of the underhill welcome.
  148. DNA:    Ah, but is there betrayal?
  149.         Chronicler:     I never said on.
  150.         Chronicler:     I said hole on a hill.
  151.         Rochette:       ((exact words, "at the house at the hill." my misreading.
  152.         Rochette:       ))
  153. * Valerie Ylsef follows people
  154. * Rochette will go down the ladder, knocking on the wall to let them know she was on the way down.
  155.         Chloe Blanchett:        "Zou ju, erm. Zou je willen... jurk?" Chloe asked Alsine.
  156. * Saturn Rosewell follows the group, though she stays more towards the back, still slightly reluctant to see the doctor, though she knows she needs to.
  157. Chloe Blanchett whispers: Rough "Would you like... dress?"
  158.         Chloe Blanchett:        Chloe lifted off her spidersilk dress and offered it to Alsine.
  159.         Cherrel Harkness:       Cherrel Harkness appears before you from around the wall and after a moment of recognizing you she welcomes you inside with a beckoning gesture.
  160.         Alsine Kolstad:         Alsine stared between the dress and Chloe. Eventually taking the silk cloth and wearing it over her shoulders, letting it drape down.
  161.         Rochette:       "Best not to go all the way in... pokemon are immune, but best to be safe."
  162.         Cherrel Harkness:       Cherrel Harkness raises an eyebrow to Rochette's words.
  163.         Rochette:       "We may or may not be infected, don't know how to tell. Still in Incubation period. Source of the disease is removed."
  164.         Rochette:       "The disease was magical in its origin, so I don't want to risk infecting your kid."
  165.         Cherrel Harkness:       "Well, as luck would have it, he's not here. So, why did you return?"
  166.         Rochette:       "We came hoping you or your husband could test us, cure us, and help the town. Or at least, you could let him know about the town once he's back."
  167.         Chloe Blanchett:        "He said it was easy to treat, but the source was the problem. We handled the source, so we wanted to see if he was willing to take one last job. We were careful while solving what we could, but we wont know if we got infected until it's too late, you know?"
  168.         Cherrel Harkness:       "Well, he took your advice and went to Fairview. If I don't hear from him in a day I'll be going out in search of him."
  169.         Cherrel Harkness:       "However, his trip to the mining town did leave him with a few medicines he made just for this disease. There should be a few here."
  170.         Saturn Rosewell:        "And he...took your child with him when he left?" Saturn had remained quiet, but...the last remark concerned her.
  171.         Cherrel Harkness:       Cherrel Harkness turns and begins opening a few suitcases and looking through some bottles.
  172.         Cherrel Harkness:       "Yes, covered him up and took some feed with him. He believed it'd help him sell our case better and he'd be at less risk with our child with him. Plus, if he's caught by anyone from Esterhedge the story we have would still be believable." Cherrel Harkness says all this without so much as looking up from her search.
  173.         Saturn Rosewell:        "I...I see... Taking one risk in order to forgo another...?"
  174.         Chloe Blanchett:        "He's really brave." Chloe smiled.
  175.         Cherrel Harkness:       Cherrel Harkness places a few bottles in a suitcase and hands it to Rochette, "There's five suppository medicinal pills in there that will help your immune system overcome the disease. I apologize but they aren't small. It's all I know for sure that Norman can spare. Better you all take it and be safe than wait for the symptoms and be stuck somewhere unsavory."
  176.         Valerie Ylsef:  "Suppository........."
  177. DNA:    Not it!
  178.         Cherrel Harkness:       "Luckily the village wasn't completely male or female so Norman didn't bother with vaginal or urethra ones, eh?"
  179.         Chloe Blanchett:        Chloe nodded. "One for each trainer... and a fifth just in case? Or maybe we could break it down and find out how to make more. Was it hard to make, did he say?"
  180.         Rochette:       "Understood. Thank you." She keeps her displeasure at the idea under wraps, bowing.
  181.         Cherrel Harkness:       "He didn't. Our discussions were more on its source and keeping the town alive rather than the medicine's creation. It could be treated so it was less of a concern."
  182.         Saturn Rosewell:        "He couldn't have thought to make ingested..." Saturn mumbled and hung her head. "...never mind."
  183.         Cherrel Harkness:       "Ingestion wasn't so much of a choice when people are vomiting everywhere."
  184.         Saturn Rosewell:        "...withdrawn."
  185.         Rochette:       "Alright. We may as well get going. Thank you."
  186.         Cherrel Harkness:       "You're quite welcome. I'll let Norman know about the town when he returns."
  187. * Rochette will lead the others back to the truck.
  188.         Rochette:       ((more exhausting CS loss?))
  189.         Alsine Kolstad:         Alsine watched Cherrel through the conversation. She reached to touch her wings.
  190.         Chronicler:     Are you jogging again?
  191.         Chloe Blanchett:        Yep!
  192.         Chronicler:     Yes, more CS loss.
  193.         Alsine Kolstad:         Alsine now has a warm spidersilk dress, this time.
  194.         Chloe Blanchett:        "Wh-where do we go now? Back south?"
  195.         Saturn Rosewell:        Saturn Rosewell has had it's Attack modified by -1 stages.
  196.         Saturn Rosewell:        Saturn Rosewell has had it's Sp.Attack modified by -1 stages.
  197.         Chronicler:     Well, it'll take you about 40m to get from Stone House back to the road.
  198. DNA:    40 metres, miles, or minutes?
  199.         Rochette:       "Truck will work fine for somewhere to use the suppositories. Warm, private enough. Take turns."
  200.         Chloe Blanchett:        "A-are they assisted? I mean, you can't do yourself, right?"
  201. Kaorin Sakura is disconnected.
  202. You have disconnected.
  203. Avara has connected.
  204. Kaorin Sakura has connected.
  205. Trulhammaren has connected.
  206. Chloe has connected.
  207. DNA has connected.
  208.         Rochette:       "I don't know what is and isn't possible with suppositories and self-medication... it would probably be best to have assistance, yes."
  209.         Valerie Ylsef:  "Verywyvern is in no condition to deal with the thugs in the back, Esterhedge I have a feeling would be a more capable place to deal with them."
  210.         Chloe Blanchett:        Chloe considered suppositories. Medicine!
  211.         Saturn Rosewell:        "And are these just for humans? What about infected Pokemon?"
  212.         Chloe Blanchett:        ((Specifically, do you need help))
  213.         Chloe Blanchett:        "They should work on pokemon, and I think you can apply them to yourself. You just can't be too squeamish about it."
  214.         Saturn Rosewell:        "But we only have 5. We're going to have to pick and choose until we run into the doctor again."
  215. You have disconnected.
  216. Avara has connected.
  217. DNA has connected.
  218. Kaorin Sakura has connected.
  219. Trulhammaren has connected.
  220. Chloe has connected.
  221.         Chronicler:     When you return to the tractor you find a female inspecting it. She has long, fluffy brown hair and is wearing a yellow jacket, blue jeans and brown boots.
  222.         Valerie Ylsef:  "Can we help you?"
  223. DNA:    Tractor? You mean the truck we were driving, right?
  224. Chronicler: (( Trucks are tractors yes. ))
  225. DNA:    Carry on.
  226.         Strange Woman:  Strange Woman turns around and looks you over before rubbing her chin, "No. You cannot."
  227.         Strange Woman:  Strange Woman returns to the tractor, stepping up onto the steps leading to the passenger door and peers inside of the vehicle.
  228.         Rochette:       "Why are you inspecting the truck?"
  229.         Chloe Blanchett:        Chloe examines the woman, judging intentions. Intuition.
  230.         Saturn Rosewell:        "...Looking for something?"
  231.         Strange Woman:  Strange Woman pauses and looks at all of you, "You're all still here. Do you have business with LE or something?"
  232.         Chloe Blanchett:        "We were using that tractor." Chloe said.
  233.         Saturn Rosewell:        "LE? That a company or something?"
  234.         Rochette:       "Lonestar Express."
  235.         Saturn Rosewell:        "...oh, right. The name on the side of the tractor. It had slipped my mind."
  236.         Rochette:       "It's the company that owns the truck. We found the drivers dead. Driving it to town to call the company so they can inform family."
  237.         Valerie Ylsef:  "Among other things."
  238.         Strange Woman:  "Hm. And what of its contents? And the driver's bodies?"
  239.         Rochette:       "Contents are still in the truck. Bodies of the drivers and one of the killers--in case there's a bounty--are also in the truck."
  240.         Chloe Blanchett:        "They might have been taken, if they're not there. We had to take a side trip."
  241.         Strange Woman:  "Hm. I see. Why not leave this task to me? You seem like a busy lot."
  242.         Saturn Rosewell:        "...Who are you?"
  243.         Rochette:       "Because I don't believe you by default to be part of the company."
  244.         Chloe Blanchett:        Chloe judges intentions! Intuition. Skill Expert [gm" 3d6+2]
  245.         Chloe Blanchett:        Retry!
  246.         Saturn Rosewell:        (Could I use an intuition check to discern identity at this point, or do I have to still go off the prior roll?)
  247.         Chronicler:     There's nothing definitive about her identity.
  248.         Strange Woman:  "I never said I was part of the company."
  249.         Rochette:       "And we have no other reason, at this point, to give the truck, contents, and bodies to someone else."
  250.         Strange Woman:  Strange Woman suddenly blinks a few times before her eyes go dead.
  251.         Chloe Blanchett:        "We could travel together." Chloe said, "Once we report it we can leave it in your hands."
  252.         Strange Woman:  "You got peanut butter in my chocolate! You got chocolate in my peanut butter! Two great tastes that taste great together!"
  253.         Valerie Ylsef:  "Uh guys.."
  254. DNA:    I am reminded of Men in Black.
  255. DNA:    And now Family Guy.
  256.         Strange Woman:  Strange Woman rubs her eyes for a moment and life returns to them. She looks up at the sky and looks displeased.
  257.         Valerie Ylsef:  "......"
  258.         Saturn Rosewell:        "...I'm going to ask this again... Who are you?"
  259.         Chloe Blanchett:        "in de truck, iets wat ze wil..." Chloe says softly.
  260. Chloe Blanchett whispers: In truck, something she wants
  261.         Strange Woman:  "As I was saying, this isn't an obligation for you. And I'm a nobody. I could use the reward cash for the time put in for this. You aren't even heading north anyway, right? Just leave it to me."
  262.         Rochette:       "I don't think we mentioned a heading to you."
  263.         Chloe Blanchett:        "Wait... why do think you know which way we are heading? The truck is facing north, after all."
  264.         Saturn Rosewell:        "Wat wil ze van de vrachtwagen?" Saturn whispers aside.
  265.         Strange Woman:  "Of course the truck is facing north. You just said you were taking it to town."
  266.         Chloe Blanchett:        "Why wouldn't we also be heading to town?"
  267.         Saturn Rosewell:        "And didn't you just suggest you DIDN'T think we were going north?"
  268.         Saturn Rosewell:        "And now suddenly you are suggesting it? How often are you going to change your mind?"
  269.         Strange Woman:  "Duh. You were just done saving the sick down, sent there by the mayor of hatespokemonville. C'mon, Chloe, don't be silly."
  270. Strange Woman: (( Town* ))
  271.         Valerie Ylsef:  "You know this freak?"
  272.         Chloe Blanchett:        Chloe shook her head.
  273.         Chloe Blanchett:        "She knows us though. A lot about us. And doesn't seem to realize why it is strange that she does."
  274.         Strange Woman:  Strange Woman's eyes go dead again, "With a name like Lifeco. it has to be good. Where a kid can be a kid. You can't top Lifeco. You, above all, deserve a break."
  275.         Strange Woman:  Life returns to Strange Woman's eyes again and she looks around, "...Is there a radio around here somewhere? I'm getting an awful lot of feedback."
  276.         Rochette:       ((need to step away to handle cooking stuff.))
  277. Strange Woman: (( Oh! In that case, how about we take a snack break ))
  278.         Valerie Ylsef:  "Lady, I'm only gonna say this once. You need to go get lost before I get nervous and light you on fire."
  279. Strange Woman: (( I could run to the store real quick and everyone can be part of this ))
  280.         Valerie Ylsef:  ((fine with me, gives me a chance to redo my pokemon sheet))
  281. DNA:    (I'll go snag blueberries from my fridge... wait, crap. I ate them all. CRAP! Now I have to find something else.)
  282.         Chloe Blanchett:        "I might be able to help with the interruptions. I've studied various devices before, maybe I can apply it with your interferance?" Chloe, contrary to others, attempted charm.
  283. Avara:  back, food is cooking. yay for being requested to make stuff in toaster oven. but yar, a light break sounds alright.
  284. Avara:  and by light i mean however long it takes
  285. DNA:    Apparently I didn't eat the blueberries before. Eatin' 'em now.
  286. Strange Woman: (( Back ))
  287. DNA:    'ayo
  288.         Chloe Blanchett:        ((I made a charm check))
  289. Strange Woman: (( Is everyone back and ready? ))
  290.         Valerie Ylsef:  (+)
  291. Strange Woman: (( Is Ava? ))
  292. Eclipse:        Eclipse System is Active.
  293. Avara:  yo
  294. Avara:  sorry, was reading while i waited
  295. Strange Woman: (( No worries. ))
  296.         Strange Woman:  "My interface? Chloe baby, I don't have anything like that. Just radio-wave feedback is all it is. Happens sometimes around pre-catas tech."
  297.         Strange Woman:  Strange Woman steps down from the stairs and looks everyone over again, "I'm very good with engines, oil and metals so it just seems like a good idea to let me take this to Cerulean. Next we meet I promise to share some of the spoils. Maybe I'll gain a few levels of power and can really pay you back than with just petty chash, neh?"
  298.         Saturn Rosewell:        "Sooooo...you just admitted to being a machine. ...Dandy."
  299.         Strange Woman:  Strange Woman's features grow serious, "I am not a machine. Do not call me that."
  300.         Saturn Rosewell:        "What would you prefer? Robot? I sided with 'machine' to be a bit more inclusive."
  301.         Rochette:       "Do you have any extra supplies to protect against the weather?"
  302.         Chloe Blanchett:        "There's nothing wrong with who someone is. She's clearly a person." Chloe attempted to smooth over any harsh words.
  303.         Strange Woman:  Strange Woman crosses her arms and looks intently to Saturn, "Do not call me that. I am no lifeless husk. I am no pile of wires and metal created by man who can only follow programming. I have free will. I make my own choices. I am flesh and blood."
  304.         Strange Woman:  Strange Woman spat on the ground, still looking at Saturn, "And you, lady, aren't very nice."
  305.         Saturn Rosewell:        "Whatever you are, we don't know who you are, don't know your intentions, are making several presumptions, occasionally break out into commercials, and have essentially tried to order us since we got here."
  306.         Saturn Rosewell:        Saturn crossed her arms a bit. "I'm not required to be 'nice'."
  307.         Chloe Blanchett:        Chloe looked nerviously between the two.
  308.         Rochette:       "... Do you have warm clothes that you could give us, in exchange for the truck that we need to get through this weather safely?"
  309.         Valerie Ylsef:  "HEEEELLLLL NO."
  310.         Strange Woman:  "I only have my jacket."
  311.         Strange Woman:  "Though I could part with that."
  312.         Rochette:       "That wouldn't cover what we need to keep moving to our next job."
  313.         Valerie Ylsef:  "Clothing or no, any reward we get or don't get from what we have is ours. After that fight we had I'm not giving anything up."
  314.         Chloe Blanchett:        "She does have a point, what we 'have' is a burden. And a lot of explaining I honestly don't want to do."
  315.         Strange Woman:  Strange Woman's eyes go dead for a moment, "Sometimes you feel like a nut, sometimes you don't. But taking care of business is never a joke. More saving. More doing. Planitall bank. Saving for you." Strange Woman's eyes suddenly return to life and energy.
  316.         Valerie Ylsef:  "What we have is a band of pokemon that apparently have been roaming around killing people willy nilly for a while now."
  317.         Valerie Ylsef:  "I could care less about what happens to the truck, but that is the only way we are gonna be able to transport those pokemon."
  318.         Chloe Blanchett:        "...." Chloe grew quiet at that.
  319.         Chloe Blanchett:        "Should we drive together to Esterhedge, then leave everything in her hands from there?"
  320.         Strange Woman:  Strange Woman huffs and takes off her jacket before tossing it toward everyone. She also tosses her black sweater as well, leaving her in only a white undershirt and bra, "That's what I can spare. Now, we can do this easy. Give me the keys ladies and gentlemen. I'd rather not have to explain missing hardware."
  321. DNA is disconnected.
  322.         Valerie Ylsef:  "That doesn't seem to fit into her plans."
  323.         Chloe Blanchett:        "I don't want, please stop!" Chloe interrupted as she started to strip.
  324. Eclipse:        I'm going to have to manually input the last few lines for when my main comp gets back up again...
  325. Strange Woman: (( Did it restart? ))
  326. Eclipse:        No; it's just totally stuck.
  327. Eclipse:        Though I COULD save the log from here. There haven't been many real whispers of note.
  328.         Chloe Blanchett:        "Unless someone isn't saying something, we can work together here! Valerie, you want credit for the pokemon bounty, if there is one. And Miss, you want to handle the delivery. If we both go north together, take a short stop in Esterhedge to unload pokemon and doublecheck bounty boards, we can split up there. You," Chloe gestured to the woman, "can continue north, while we go on our way."
  329. DNA has connected.
  330.         Chloe Blanchett:        "I know no one here trusts anyone else, we're not saying it but we don't. But that doesn't mean we can't state our goals and work together."
  331.         Strange Woman:  "Can that work? Will I have your word?"
  332.         Rochette:       "Let us get loaded in and you can have the keys."
  333.         Valerie Ylsef:  "Like I said, I don't care about the truck."
  334.         Valerie Ylsef:  "Except as required transportation."
  335.         Chloe Blanchett:        "You have mine, but we are a team." Chloe looked to the others.
  336.         Saturn Rosewell:        ".........No complaints from me."
  337. * Rochette hands back the clothes.
  338.         Strange Woman:  Strange Woman accepts the clothes and puts them back on.
  339.         Strange Woman:  Strange Woman nods to the agreement, "Alright. I can do this."
  340. * Rochette will sit in the trailer with the cargo.
  341.         Chloe Blanchett:        Chloe finds space in one of the beds, squeezing in.
  342.         Alsine Kolstad:         Alsine sees fit to squeeze into the same bed as Chloe.
  343.         Saturn Rosewell:        Saturn will be huddled in some corner by herself, as before.
  344. * Valerie Ylsef will return to the other bed
  345.         Rochette:       Once everyone's situated, Rochette hands over the keys.
  346.         Strange Woman:  Strange Woman sits in the driver seat and accepts the keys from Rochette before turning on the tractor. She smiles to the sound of the engine coming to life.
  347.         Strange Woman:  "Alright, to Esterhedge we go!" She changes the gears and pulls off down the road.
  348.         Chronicler:     It takes 40-minutes to reach Esterhedge Village via the LE tractor. Strange Woman drives directly up to the gate before stepping out of the tractor and waving to the two guards at the gate.
  349.         Chloe Blanchett:        "What's your name, if you don't mind me asking Miss?"
  350.         Strange Woman:  "I'm Nobody. I said that already, didn't I?"
  351.         Evan Ruiz:      'Inbee, you're back soon."
  352.         Chloe Blanchett:        "You did... but I didn't realize that was a proper noun."
  353.         Strange Woman:  "I stumbled upon this magnificent steed. I couldn't help myself."
  354.         Lane Tate:      "Machines are gonna be the death of you girl. Hasn't history taught you anything?"
  355.         Strange Woman:  "Yes. That space invaders are evil."
  356. Evan Ruiz: (( I'm assuming no one else has stepped out of the truck. ))
  357.         Strange Woman:  "Do you guys have a phone? I have some suspicious characters mentioning making a 'call' here?"
  358.         Valerie Ylsef:  "Suspicious my ass."
  359.         Alsine Kolstad:         Alsine gets out first, having wedge Chloe into the truck. Chloe follows after.
  360. * Rochette steps out of the trailer.
  361.         Evan Ruiz:      "Oh. These guys? Nah, they're alright."
  362.         Strange Woman:  "I'm not so sure...but they have some bodies in the trailer they wanted to offload."
  363.         Rochette:       "Incorrect."
  364.         Rochette:       "For accuracy, we found them at the site of a pokemon attack. Wanted to call their employers to make sure their families were made aware of what happened."
  365. Valerie Ylsef:  "No she's right we have bodies, though only three of them are lifeless."
  366.         Rochette:       "The incorrect part was the 'offload' bit."
  367.         Chloe Blanchett:        "We brought the pokemon too, saved as many as we could but it was a brutal fight. We were wondering if there was a bounty on them, they seemed to be bandits."
  368.         Lane Tate:      "Well, we have carrier Pidgey's."
  369.         Rochette:       "They have their identification on them. Would it be acceptable to leave them in your care, then?"
  370.         Evan Ruiz:      "The uhh, dead bodies or the injured Pokemon?"
  371.         Rochette:       "'Offload' sounds like we're trying to hide the bodies or something."
  372.         Lane Tate:      "Please don't say 'Yes'."
  373.         Rochette:       "... The dead bodies. We want to see if there's a bounty for the pokemon."
  374.         Lane Tate:      "Well, we don't cater to visitors so we don't have bounty or job boards here."
  375.         Rochette:       "We don't have a means to transport them, as the truck isn't our property."
  376.         Evan Ruiz:      "We also don't have phones. As you probably notice, we don't have electricity either. But, we do have carrier Pidgey's as Lane said."
  377.         Rochette:       "Could you send one of the carrier pidgeys to a town that -does- have bounty boards?"
  378.         Chloe Blanchett:        "It would be easier to go to one that does. But a bounty was a long shot anyway."
  379.         Rochette:       "Indeed..."
  380. Lane Tate:      "Cerulean City? Snowmeadow Vilalge? Saffron City? Lavender City?"
  381.         Valerie Ylsef:  "You must have some way of dealing with such. As I recall Mister Reginald came by this way for jobs."
  382.         Lane Tate:      "He came through here on a job not looking for a job."
  383. Valerie Ylsef:  "My misunderstanding then."
  384.         Lane Tate:      "Though I don't mind sending out a letter."
  385. Rochette:       "A letter would be fine. Any city that can respond quickly."
  386.         Strange Woman:  "Well, if you don't mind heading east, we could just keep driving."
  387.         Strange Woman:  "Though, we'll need to stay here for the evening. Batteries almost dead and the truck's solar powered."
  388.         Chloe Blanchett:        "Even if that would be against our promise...?"
  389.         Rochette:       "..." She looks to the others. "Do we toss our planned route out?"
  390.         Strange Woman:  "You guys want the bounty. I just want the LE reward. Neither of us are entirely sure either has any value in it."
  391. Valerie Ylsef:  "Well we should take a look at a job board anyway after the Vertwyvern job."
  392.         Saturn Rosewell:        "...I want to find the doctor. I don't feel good leaving the villa out to dry without alerting him."
  393.         Chloe Blanchett:        "I don't mind..." Chloe said.
  394. * Rochette taps Saturn on the shoulder.
  395.         Chloe Blanchett:        "G... geheim ja?"
  396. Chloe Blanchett whispers: Secret yes?
  397. You whisper to Chloe: (OOC: Secret what?)
  398. Valerie Ylsef:  "Well she said he headed to Fairview. We can always stop there on the way."
  399.         Rochette:       ((GODDAMNIT VAL))
  400. Chloe Blanchett whispers: ((This is the exact town we said we wouldn't mention him in))
  401. You whisper to Chloe: ...Ah, right. That totally slipped my mind; I'm sorry.
  402.         Evan Ruiz:      "Didn't realize you and Inbee were well acquanted."
  403.         Strange Woman:  "Huh?"
  404.         Lane Tate:      "When you see Doctor Norman, ask him to visit us on his way to Vertwyvern."
  405.         Saturn Rosewell:        "Ja, de voet arts."
  406. You whisper to Chloe: "Yeah, the foot doctor."
  407. Valerie Ylsef:  "Can do."
  408.         Strange Woman:  Strange Woman rubs her chin thoughtfully, "Hm. The plot thickens."
  409.         Rochette:       "Speaking of progression, do you have a place to sleep tonight, 'Inbee'?"
  410.         Lane Tate:      "Good thing you guys were able to locate him. Mayor McAvery was getting really worried."
  411.         Strange Woman:  "Hm? I planned to sleep in the tractor. But I guess I could sleep with Jones..."
  412.         Lane Tate:      Lane Tate coughs loudly when she mentions Jones.
  413.         Rochette:       "Is something wrong? Or are you getting sick?"
  414.         Evan Ruiz:      "Nah, Lane's fine. Pay that no mind, eh?"
  415.         Strange Woman:  "I said my first thought was the tractor..."
  416.         Rochette:       ((kaorin, did we meet a jones before?))
  417.         Chloe Blanchett:        "Places to stay will be difficult. And we have that antidote to take, our encounter with Miss Nobody cut that short."
  418. Strange Woman: (( You sure did. Jones McAvery. ))
  419. DNA:    (I thought Jones was the armor merchant, actually...)
  420. Joseph Charley: (( Joseph Charley ))
  421.         Alsine Kolstad:         "Ik zou geen problemen met het vinden van een bed om in te slapen hebben." Alsine stated.
  422. Alsine Kolstad whispers: I should have no trouble finding a bed to sleep in.
  423. Valerie Ylsef:  "Don't remind me..."
  424. Avara:  could someone please roll intuition on evan ruiz and lane tate regarding jones? checking my intuition to roll now
  425. Miss Nobody 'Inbee': (( Renamed Strange Woman to Miss Nobody 'Inbee' ))
  426. DNA:    I can do that! Saturn was also curious about the comment also. Intuition 5d6+1 .
  427.         Chronicler:     I see your result. What's the intuition for?
  428. DNA:    Mine is regarding Lane's reaction to Nobody's suggestion to 'sleep with Jones'.
  429. Avara:  they're acting suspicious about jones mcavery when he got brought up. trying to see if they seem like they might be guilty and covering it up.
  430. Chronicler whispers: Lane appears to be jealous of whatever Inbee has with Jones.
  431. You whisper to Kaorin Sakura: Do I have a clue of exactly what that is?
  432. Chronicler whispers: You don't.
  433. * Rochette raises an eyebrow at the two.
  434.         Chloe Blanchett:        Chloe assumes Lane was taken aback NB's blatant sexual reference. She also notes that Rochette doesn't seem to have much in the ways of interpersonal awareness.
  435. * Saturn Rosewell chuckles. Very quietly.
  436.         Evan Ruiz:      "Don't worry chère. You can always sleep with me."
  437.         Rochette:       "Alright... we can go visit Jones, then. I would rather not sleep in the truck."
  438.         Miss Nobody 'Inbee':    "Huh? But you sleep with Lane and the others."
  439.         Lane Tate:      "I do not sleep with Evan."
  440.         Evan Ruiz:      "Lane does not but for you, chère, I'd make room."
  441.         Miss Nobody 'Inbee':    "I'll wait in the truck then. See if I can get the heat running."
  442. Avara:  would chloe like to handle the talking with the mayoral type personage?
  443.         Chloe Blanchett:        "I can wait in the truck too, if you don't mind company." Chloe smiled.
  444.         Miss Nobody 'Inbee':    "Ah? Not really."
  445.         Miss Nobody 'Inbee':    Miss Nobody 'Inbee' steps back up into the tractor.
  446.         Chloe Blanchett:        "I'm not sure if there's much more room though..." Chloe looked to the others.
  447.         Chronicler:     The guards don't deny any of Winter Lotus entry.
  448. * Rochette will enter the town. "Saturn, Valerie, I would like to talk to you in private at some point."
  449. * Valerie Ylsef follows Rochette. "Sure whenever."
  450.         Saturn Rosewell:        "Okay."
  451.         Chloe Blanchett:        "U-um... is there a bathroom I could use? Outhouse, guardhouse...?" Chloe asked Lane.
  452.         Lane Tate:      "Ah, yes. By the guardhouse." Lane Tate motions to the southern part of town.
  453. Avara:  could we call it here while the girls find and use said private place for their suppositories, and rochette scolds saturn and valerie for blowing the secret?
  454.         Miss Nobody 'Inbee':    Sure. We can begin at the start of the next day if you like.
  455. Avara:  i'm ok with that if everyone else is.
  456. DNA:    I have no objection.
  457.         Miss Nobody 'Inbee':    Sure. You guys can do your IC chat separately if you like.
  458. Avara:  ok
  459. DNA:    In this room, or outside in Skype?
  460. * DNA asks for log-taking purposes.
  461.         Chronicler:     Skype preferably.
  462. Trulhammaren:   is fine
  463. DNA:    Got it.
  464. Avara:  exp, txp, hugs?
  465.         Chronicler:     So: If anyone wants to check with people in town before leaving it, just let me know so I don't skip to the drive.
  466. DNA:    There's no one I want to check with that's actually in Esterhedge
  467.         Chronicler:     3 TXP. 67 PkmnXP.
  468. Avara:  are we crafting our own clothes or buying them?
  469. Trulhammaren:   shopping would be the only thing I'd be half interested in
  470.         Chloe Blanchett:        Actually yes, cold weather shopping.
  471.         Chronicler:     Awesome. Crafting is also a thing people can do.
  472.         Chronicler:     I'll drop shop inventory and prices later in the week in the Skype chat. (Probably tomorrow)
  473. Avara:  we can discuss that another time i guess. *hugs everyone*
  474. Avara is disconnected.
  475.         Chronicler:     Saving campaign and log
  476. Trulhammaren is disconnected.
  477. Chloe is disconnected.
  478. DNA is disconnected.
  479. You have disconnected.
