  1. [2015-05-10 15:55:24] * Kitsune-chan starts drawing out the area in the crator
  2. [2015-05-10 16:00:39] * Mishie|Johnny notices that for some reason Kitsune is in the crater, and decides to find out what's going on
  3. [2015-05-10 16:00:42] <Mishie|Johnny> "Yo"
  4. [2015-05-10 16:01:20] <Kitsune-chan> "Setting up Casino"
  5. [2015-05-10 16:01:37] * Casshan floats down from above and waves them down. "Hey! What are you doing here?"
  6. [2015-05-10 16:02:25] * Mishie|Johnny shrugs
  7. [2015-05-10 16:06:17] * Kitsune-chan assumes cyborgs can hear
  8. [2015-05-10 16:06:21] <Mishie|Johnny> "Apparently there's something about a Casino or whatever?"
  9. [2015-05-10 16:07:23] <Kitsune-chan> "Making one"
  10. [2015-05-10 16:08:05] <Casshan> "...oh."
  11. [2015-05-10 16:08:18] <Casshan> "In this exact area?"
  12. [2015-05-10 16:09:04] <Kitsune-chan> "yes"
  13. [2015-05-10 16:09:23] <Mishie|Johnny> "Huuuuuuh"
  14. [2015-05-10 16:11:19] <Casshan> "Well! I was working on the robot arena here."
  15. [2015-05-10 16:11:25] <Casshan> "...so that could be a problem."
  16. [2015-05-10 16:11:37] <Kitsune-chan> "It will work"
  17. [2015-05-10 16:12:40] <Casshan> "Errr... what will?"
  18. [2015-05-10 16:13:16] <Mishie|Johnny> "If this is going to be some sort of Mega Robot Fighting Arena with Casino and Other Entertainment, I'm mildly interested"
  19. [2015-05-10 16:13:20] <Kitsune-chan> "All encompassing magical area where peopel can bet on things"
  20. [2015-05-10 16:14:37] * Mishie|Johnny nods
  21. [2015-05-10 16:15:38] <Kitsune-chan> "There you go'
  22. [2015-05-10 16:20:21] <Mishie|Johnny> "Sooooooo"
  23. [2015-05-10 16:20:36] <Mishie|Johnny> "Apparently you're an architect now Kitsune"
  24. [2015-05-10 16:20:45] <Casshan> "Oh, fine."
  25. [2015-05-10 16:21:07] <Casshan> "But I'm giving oversight on your designs. If you don't have an engineer something terrible could happen."
  26. [2015-05-10 16:21:24] <DarkenedHG> Lightning in the background!
  27. [2015-05-10 16:21:27] <DarkenedHG> Dramatically
  28. [2015-05-10 16:21:41] * Mishie|Johnny looks over
  29. [2015-05-10 16:21:51] <DarkenedHG> The sky is clear.
  30. [2015-05-10 16:21:53] <Mishie|Johnny> "Well that's different"
  31. [2015-05-10 16:21:54] <Kitsune-chan> "I Give people the buildings they deserve"
  32. [2015-05-10 16:27:07] <Kitsune-chan> "though I guess I need someone for this"
  33. [2015-05-10 16:27:55] * Casshan looks over.
  34. [2015-05-10 16:29:17] <Ai_Nitami> "... so, people just bet and it will be enforced in the area?"
  35. [2015-05-10 16:30:07] <Mishie|Johnny> "ohshit it's an Ai"
  36. [2015-05-10 16:30:16] <Mishie|Johnny> "Didn't see you there"
  37. [2015-05-10 16:30:35] <Mishie|Johnny> "Also, did any of you do that lightning shit?  Wasn't me this time"
  38. [2015-05-10 16:30:40] <Kitsune-chan> "And you can bet all sorts of things"
  39. [2015-05-10 16:32:01] <Ai_Nitami> "I assume it will be mostly fair?"
  40. [2015-05-10 16:33:01] * Mishie|Johnny laughs
  41. [2015-05-10 16:33:14] <Mishie|Johnny> "oh Ai, you've never been to a casino have you?"
  42. [2015-05-10 16:34:38] <Ai_Nitami> "No, I know casino is unfair. That's kinda the point. I mean, this... betting... field... magical thingy? Is it fair?"
  43. [2015-05-10 16:34:45] <Kitsune-chan> "Odds always favor someone. "
  44. [2015-05-10 16:34:56] <Mishie|Johnny> "But seriously though, does anybody that's able to fly or move faster than sound want to see what's going on over there"
  45. [2015-05-10 16:35:00] * Mishie|Johnny looks at Casshan
  46. [2015-05-10 16:35:06] <Ai_Nitami> "Does it favor the house, primarily?"
  47. [2015-05-10 16:35:37] <Mishie|Johnny> "Look, Ai, trust me when I say that you don't need magic for that kind of shit"
  48. [2015-05-10 16:35:42] <Kitsune-chan> "The games should, there willb e other things"
  49. [2015-05-10 16:35:42] <Casshan> "Oh!"
  50. [2015-05-10 16:35:57] * Casshan steps into the air. "I'll be right back!"
  51. [2015-05-10 16:36:22] * Casshan blinks towards the the flash to see what's going on.
  52. [2015-05-10 16:37:17] * Ai_Nitami shrug.
  53. [2015-05-10 16:37:24] <Ai_Nitami> "Well, alright."
  54. [2015-05-10 16:38:46] <Kitsune-chan> "I need a bunnygirl for this"
  55. [2015-05-10 16:39:15] * Ai_Nitami twitches.
  56. [2015-05-10 16:40:20] <Mishie|Johnny> "That reminds me, what's up with that spiderchick you had"
  57. [2015-05-10 16:40:31] <DarkenedHG> There doesn't seem to be anything.
  58. [2015-05-10 16:40:35] <Mishie|Johnny> "Were you two going around transforming people or something?"
  59. [2015-05-10 16:40:36] <DarkenedHG> At least not that Casshan can find.
  60. [2015-05-10 16:40:46] * Casshan flies back.
  61. [2015-05-10 16:41:00] <Casshan> "Didn't see anything!"
  62. [2015-05-10 16:41:16] <Kitsune-chan> "It thematically works well"
  63. [2015-05-10 16:41:40] <Ai_Nitami> "She tried to eat me. Well. When she's still a man-eating giant spider."
  64. [2015-05-10 16:41:49] <Mishie|Johnny> "Uhuuuuuh"
  65. [2015-05-10 16:41:54] * Mishie|Johnny looks at Kitsune-chan "And you?"
  66. [2015-05-10 16:44:41] <Kitsune-chan> "what?"
  67. [2015-05-10 16:47:42] <Mishie|Johnny> "How many people or whatever did you transform?"
  68. [2015-05-10 16:47:58] * Ai_Nitami ponders.
  69. [2015-05-10 16:47:59] <Casshan> "...like one."
  70. [2015-05-10 16:48:04] <Ai_Nitami> "Three."
  71. [2015-05-10 16:48:08] * Casshan blinks. "Oh, you weren't asking me!"
  72. [2015-05-10 16:48:10] * Casshan winces.
  73. [2015-05-10 16:48:25] <Mishie|Johnny> "Three"
  74. [2015-05-10 16:48:32] <Mishie|Johnny> "In the hour or so that I was gone"
  75. [2015-05-10 16:48:45] <Ai_Nitami> "One in self-defense, one in a whim, one in an accident."
  76. [2015-05-10 16:48:59] <Ai_Nitami> "Well, you bring an Actual to our chancel, Johnny."
  77. [2015-05-10 16:49:04] <Mishie|Johnny> "Does that include the Excrutian and the Actual?"
  78. [2015-05-10 16:49:11] <Ai_Nitami> "Don't throw stone in a glasshouse and all that."
  79. [2015-05-10 16:49:20] <Mishie|Johnny> "And nobody was hurt by that at all"
  80. [2015-05-10 16:49:24] <Ai_Nitami> "That includes the Excrucian, yes. The Actual is not my doing."
  81. [2015-05-10 16:49:28] <Mishie|Johnny> "Plus the boss okayed it"
  82. [2015-05-10 16:49:57] * Casshan coughs and floats away slowly.
  83. [2015-05-10 16:50:28] <Mishie|Johnny> "So who was the third?  Anything I need to be worried about?"
  84. [2015-05-10 16:50:54] <Ai_Nitami> "...random citizen on our Chancel."
  85. [2015-05-10 16:51:10] * Mishie|Johnny looks at Casshan before she can float away "And what's this about you transforming random people?  I'm hoping that they had some say it in"
  86. [2015-05-10 16:51:22] * Casshan stops.
  87. [2015-05-10 16:52:03] <Casshan> "...yeah! The boss is really mean to his secretaries so I gave her tiiny upgrades."
  88. [2015-05-10 16:52:15] <Mishie|Johnny> "Uhuuhhh"
  89. [2015-05-10 16:52:21] <Kitsune-chan> "alot?"
  90. [2015-05-10 16:53:11] <DarkenedHG> Dramatic thunder!
  91. [2015-05-10 16:53:21] <Mishie|Johnny> "waitasec"
  92. [2015-05-10 16:53:34] <Mishie|Johnny> "Did anybody ever do anything with that boxbot thing?"
  93. [2015-05-10 16:53:51] <Mishie|Johnny> "You guys DID secure it after I left right?"
  94. [2015-05-10 16:54:37] <Ai_Nitami> "Securing it means we'll have to mess with it, Johnny."
  95. [2015-05-10 16:54:46] <Ai_Nitami> "And, uh. I don't want to mess with it."
  96. [2015-05-10 16:55:19] <DarkenedHG> Dramaticer thunder
  97. [2015-05-10 16:55:30] <Mishie|Johnny> "No, securing it means not leaving it in the middle of the street, it only did shit if you tried to open it"
  98. [2015-05-10 16:56:05] <Kitsune-chan> "I left it with you"
  99. [2015-05-10 16:56:07] <Ai_Nitami> "That requires touching it."
  100. [2015-05-10 16:56:22] <Mishie|Johnny> "Ai, touching it doesn't set it off, opening it did"
  101. [2015-05-10 16:56:32] <Mishie|Johnny> "You were there, you saw people holding it and nothing happening"
  102. [2015-05-10 16:57:01] * Mishie|Johnny looks over at the direction the thunder is coming from
  103. [2015-05-10 16:57:19] <Casshan> "...I just left it. Didn't want to deal with what was obviously just being used to prank me."
  104. [2015-05-10 16:57:21] <Ai_Nitami> "...should we check that?"
  105. [2015-05-10 16:57:22] <Mishie|Johnny> "That's also starting to get annoying as well"
  106. [2015-05-10 16:57:33] <Casshan> "Probably?"
  107. [2015-05-10 16:58:53] <Kitsune-chan> "The box is a risk. Therefore someone who has power over risk should handle it"
  108. [2015-05-10 16:59:29] * Ai_Nitami looks at Mishie|Johnny
  109. [2015-05-10 17:00:10] <Mishie|Johnny> "And I'm pretty sure that magic was involved, and also that at some stage that it was turned into a cyborg"
  110. [2015-05-10 17:00:30] <DarkenedHG> Very dramatic thunder!
  111. [2015-05-10 17:02:02] <Kitsune-chan> "nah its religious risk, totally different from magic"
  112. [2015-05-10 17:03:05] <Ai_Nitami> "Guys, guys. Let's check that very dramatic thunder? Can you see how risky it will be, Mishie|Johnny?"
  113. [2015-05-10 17:03:24] * Mishie|Johnny siiiiiiighs
  114. [2015-05-10 17:04:19] * Casshan lifts a boulder. "Alright, everyone get on! I'll carry you there."
  115. [2015-05-10 17:04:36] * Mishie|Johnny stares at Casshan
  116. [2015-05-10 17:04:50] <Casshan> "...unless you can fly or teleport there on your own, in which case you can j-just do it yourself, dumbass."
  117. [2015-05-10 17:05:00] * Casshan flusters a bit and frowns.
  118. [2015-05-10 17:05:25] <Casshan> "Make up your mind!"
  119. [2015-05-10 17:07:23] * Kitsune-chan transforms into a bird and waits.
  120. [2015-05-10 17:09:47] * Ai_Nitami ponders.
  121. [2015-05-10 17:09:52] <Ai_Nitami> "...alright."
  122. [2015-05-10 17:10:37] <Mishie|Johnny> "Well, considering how there apparently isn't any risk involved in the lighting or thunder, I don't know shit about it"
  123. [2015-05-10 17:11:03] * Ai_Nitami shrug. "Let's check it, then."
  124. [2015-05-10 17:12:54] <Kitsune-chan> "So Johnny was going to handle the box"
  125. [2015-05-10 17:13:56] <Mishie|Johnny> "Pretty sure I never agreed to that, but since you guys apparently can't be trusted with it, guess it's up to me to clean up after you guys"
  126. [2015-05-10 17:13:57] * Mishie|Johnny shrugs
  127. [2015-05-10 17:14:32] <Kitsune-chan> "If its too mucxh of a challenge.."
  128. [2015-05-10 17:15:03] <Casshan> "...well?"
  129. [2015-05-10 17:15:10] <DarkenedHG> Dramatic thunder!
  130. [2015-05-10 17:15:11] * Casshan continues to heft a boulder awkwardly.
  131. [2015-05-10 17:18:49] * Mishie|Johnny sighs and climbs up onto the boulder
  132. [2015-05-10 17:20:21] * Casshan waits for Ai.
  133. [2015-05-10 17:21:40] * Ai_Nitami climsb on the boulder.
  134. [2015-05-10 17:24:26] <Casshan> "Alright everyone! Hold on tight."
  135. [2015-05-10 17:24:28] * Casshan flies off towards the last flash of lightning.
  136. [2015-05-10 17:25:25] <DarkenedHG> There's a building!
  137. [2015-05-10 17:25:41] <DarkenedHG> It seems to be a store.
  138. [2015-05-10 17:26:00] * Casshan sets the boulder down in the parking lot and makes sure not to occupy too many spaces.
  139. [2015-05-10 17:26:20] <DarkenedHG> It's not big enough to warrent one!
  140. [2015-05-10 17:28:58] <Kitsune-chan> is it one of the stores we've ruined?
  141. [2015-05-10 17:29:07] <DarkenedHG> It seems mostly rebuilt.
  142. [2015-05-10 17:29:21] <Kitsune-chan> I mean is it one of the  ones we've been to?
  143. [2015-05-10 17:30:15] * Casshan floats over to the door and peers inside. "So... the place had stores like this before, right?"
  144. [2015-05-10 17:30:35] <Casshan> "Feels a bit weird to be asking questions like that, but I only ever saw it partially blown-up.
  145. [2015-05-10 17:30:37] <Casshan> "
  146. [2015-05-10 17:31:31] <Ai_Nitami> "..is this your store, Kitsune-chan?"
  147. [2015-05-10 17:31:47] * Casshan opens the door.
  148. [2015-05-10 17:33:09] <DarkenedHG> No
  149. [2015-05-10 17:33:16] <DarkenedHG> There's someone inside!
  150. [2015-05-10 17:33:22] <DarkenedHG> Dun DUN DUN
  151. [2015-05-10 17:33:31] <DarkenedHG> "Can I help you?"
  152. [2015-05-10 17:33:57] * Kitsune-chan heads inside
  153. [2015-05-10 17:36:00] * Mishie|Johnny jumps off the rock and follows the rest
  154. [2015-05-10 17:36:07] <DarkenedHG> "Hello?"
  155. [2015-05-10 17:36:11] * Casshan looks at them as she steps in. "I guess I'm just browsing!"
  156. [2015-05-10 17:36:17] <DarkenedHG> "We're having a bit of trouble at the moment."
  157. [2015-05-10 17:36:19] <Casshan> "What does this store sell?"
  158. [2015-05-10 17:36:24] <Casshan> "...are you?"
  159. [2015-05-10 17:36:24] <DarkenedHG> "If it's not urgent would you mind coming back..."
  160. [2015-05-10 17:36:25] <Kitsune-chan> (WHo is talking?)
  161. [2015-05-10 17:36:27] <DarkenedHG> He pauses.
  162. [2015-05-10 17:36:32] <DarkenedHG> "Drama."
  163. [2015-05-10 17:36:39] <DarkenedHG> THUNDER!
  164. [2015-05-10 17:36:44] <Casshan> "You sell drama?"
  165. [2015-05-10 17:36:50] <DarkenedHG> "It's just a bit out of control at the moment."
  166. [2015-05-10 17:37:18] <Casshan> "Do you do bulk sales?"
  167. [2015-05-10 17:37:50] <Casshan> "I'm building a robot fighting arena that will go beyond even thunderdome."
  168. [2015-05-10 17:40:56] <Ai_Nitami> "An out of control drama?"
  169. [2015-05-10 17:41:03] <Mishie|Johnny> "Before we get to that, lets go back to the fact that your stock is out of control"
  170. [2015-05-10 17:41:36] <DarkenedHG> "Yeah..."
  171. [2015-05-10 17:41:47] <DarkenedHG> "Something blew up the city and it kinda got a bit too reactive."
  172. [2015-05-10 17:43:43] <Kitsune-chan> "who buys drama?"
  173. [2015-05-10 17:47:20] <Casshan> "Who wouldn't, if you could?"
  174. [2015-05-10 17:47:46] <Kitsune-chan> "It seems free"
  175. [2015-05-10 17:51:07] <DarkenedHG> "Nothing in life is free."
  176. [2015-05-10 17:51:52] <DarkenedHG> "Besides, a well put together background song, appropriate cut-outs, mood-lighting, these things take professionals."
  177. [2015-05-10 17:58:33] <Kitsune-chan> "I Guess"
  178. [2015-05-10 17:59:53] <Casshan> "Ooooh. I'm liking this already!"
  179. [2015-05-10 18:00:01] <Casshan> "...so."
  180. [2015-05-10 18:00:25] <Casshan> "Any idea what's causing the problem?"
  181. [2015-05-10 18:04:10] * Mishie|Johnny looks out the door at the fucked up city
  182. [2015-05-10 18:04:15] <Mishie|Johnny> "I can think of a few things"
  183. [2015-05-10 18:04:25] <DarkenedHG> "Too much energy."
  184. [2015-05-10 18:05:33] <Mishie|Johnny> "So here's the actual important question, is all this drama escaping going to have any serious effects and if so how can it be fixed"
  185. [2015-05-10 18:06:26] <Mishie|Johnny> "Also, do you guys have like, a catalogue or something?"
  186. [2015-05-10 18:08:08] <DarkenedHG> "I kinda feel obligated to say yes working here..."
  187. [2015-05-10 18:08:12] <DarkenedHG> "And we do have a catalogue."
  188. [2015-05-10 18:14:38] * Mishie|Johnny nods along "Of course of course, and I'm sure you've done all that you could to help sort things out.  But sometimes things just get too out of hand."
  189. [2015-05-10 18:16:13] <DarkenedHG> "Also it's unfixable and we're all doomed."
  190. [2015-05-10 18:16:18] <DarkenedHG> Peel of thunder!
  191. [2015-05-10 18:16:58] <Mishie|Johnny> "Of course it is"
  192. [2015-05-10 18:17:26] <Mishie|Johnny> "But in the event that it wasn't, I'm sure that your store has policies set in place for emergencies"
  193. [2015-05-10 18:20:59] <DarkenedHG> "That wouldn't really be in theme if they were effective."
  194. [2015-05-10 18:23:59] <Mishie|Johnny> "True, but I highly doubt the owners wanted all the legal troubles that would be involved in the event of something going wrong"
  195. [2015-05-10 18:25:11] <DarkenedHG> "We have laws here?"
  196. [2015-05-10 18:27:16] <Mishie|Johnny> "Of course"
  197. [2015-05-10 18:27:29] <Ai_Nitami> "... does the effect include lilies spawn on the background while holding hands?"
  198. [2015-05-10 18:28:02] <Casshan> "That sounds oddly specific,"
  199. [2015-05-10 18:28:55] <Ai_Nitami> "Well, it is pretty dramatic..."
  200. [2015-05-10 18:29:08] <Mishie|Johnny> "For a certain value of drama"
  201. [2015-05-10 18:29:56] <DarkenedHG> "Sure?"
  202. [2015-05-10 18:31:05] <Ai_Nitami> "Alright. So. Uh. How do we bottle those... drama?"
  203. [2015-05-10 18:33:06] <Ai_Nitami> "I mean. Do we search for it, or lure it, or what?"
  204. [2015-05-10 18:33:30] <Casshan> "We need to make containers for them."
  205. [2015-05-10 18:33:36] <Casshan> "And then stuff them in?"
  206. [2015-05-10 18:34:01] * Ai_Nitami points her thumb to the proprietor. "He doesn't have container?"
  207. [2015-05-10 18:34:03] <DarkenedHG> "Theyre too excited."
  208. [2015-05-10 18:34:06] <DarkenedHG> "Gotta put em out."
  209. [2015-05-10 18:34:09] * Ai_Nitami points her thumb to the proprietor. "He doesn't have container?"
  210. [2015-05-10 18:34:28] <Ai_Nitami> "Right. How to un-excite them, then?"
  211. [2015-05-10 18:35:51] <DarkenedHG> He leans in conspiratorly close and his voice falls to a very very quiet whisper.
  212. [2015-05-10 18:35:56] <DarkenedHG> "There's only one way."
  213. [2015-05-10 18:37:45] * Ai_Nitami dramatically lean to him. "And that would be?"
  214. [2015-05-10 18:42:04] <DarkenedHG> "Tire them out."
  215. [2015-05-10 18:42:08] <DarkenedHG> DUN DUN DUN
  216. [2015-05-10 18:43:30] * Ai_Nitami nods. "Alright, she says, then turn toward her group. "It looks like we need to kick everything up a notch."
  217. [2015-05-10 18:45:35] <Kitsune-chan> "Why?"
  218. [2015-05-10 18:46:29] * Ai_Nitami shrug. "Apparently, the drama can't be stuffed back, and can only be tired out," Ai ponder. "...well, we can still try stuffing them in a box somewhere, I guess..."
  219. [2015-05-10 18:48:31] <Kitsune-chan> "If we decreased the drama wouldn't it calm down?"
  220. [2015-05-10 18:50:16] <Ai_Nitami> "You don't want to decrease the drama?"
  221. [2015-05-10 18:50:33] <Kitsune-chan> "what?"
  222. [2015-05-10 18:51:32] <DarkenedHG> "If you decrease it, they'll get bored and restless."
  223. [2015-05-10 18:51:45] <DarkenedHG> "I dropped my ice-cream! THUNDER LIGHTNING SHOCK SOUNDS"
  224. [2015-05-10 18:54:54] <Ai_Nitami> "I mean, we need to make things EVEN MORE DRAMATIC! So the drama will run out! ...I think."
  225. [2015-05-10 18:55:38] <Ai_Nitami> "Hmm. Maybe we can just... make your gladiator fighting arena more exciting, Casshan. It will make a great first impression as well!"
  226. [2015-05-10 18:56:00] <Casshan> "Oh. That was your idea?"
  227. [2015-05-10 18:56:25] <Casshan> "I was thinking... we could just send a mass text telling people in the city they have unpayed electrical bills."
  228. [2015-05-10 18:56:57] * Casshan is actually doing that right now.
  229. [2015-05-10 19:07:11] * Casshan evidently does not.
  230. [2015-05-10 19:07:41] <DarkenedHG> ""You need to make everything more dramatic!"
  231. [2015-05-10 19:07:49] <DarkenedHG> "The way you speak, the way you act, the way you react!"
