  1. <DM> **LAST TIME ON ZURPG - Kokiri Edition**
  2. <DM> With Bruce Willis: Fran Edition on your tail, you sent Darte out as bait- I mean as a distraction while the rest of you took the Kokiri along the river path. Partway up, you decided you needed more help, so Melizea & Sephiroth split off to find and negotiate with the Deku Scrubs. Needless to say, they were a bunch of sleezy businessmen, and you decided not to press the matter with force, so you ended up heading back to the Kokiri.
  3. <DM> Meanwhile, Darte faced off against Fran.. and by that, I mean he died. Several times. His Pet Boss Baba intervened to help him out, but unfortunately, it succumbed to the overwhelming might of Michael Bay. In the end, Fran underwent a massive breakdown, and literally everything exploded, sending Darte team-rocketing into the sky as a crispy fillet.
  4. <DM> Back at the Kokiri, Mel and a Silver-haired Tower Shield reunited with the Kokiri at the river gap. While Mido was contemplating how to cross the gap, the One Winged Angel flew him over. Though, before he could do the same with the other 70ish Kokiri, a new foe appeared: Zolas. Melizea took one out with an iceberg, Titanic-style, but they reappeared with a frigin’ Pirate Ship, and a whole lot more Zolas.
  5. <DM> Also, Darte returned to your party in his usual fashion: falling as a corpe from the sky, and somehow flinging one of the ship’s turrets at you. Time to fight some pirates!
  6. <DM> -=SESSION START=-
  7. <Sephiroth> 37h, 36m | Nayru's Love: 100h
  8. <DM> *Gentlemen, swimming towards you, you see- that's the wrong term. Whatever.
  9. <Melizea> 15h, 6m | Ice Materia and Regeneration Shield Equipped | Wearing Hylian Mask | Force Meter: 25 pts
  10. <Melizea> (not sure if this is the start of another round or battle or something)
  11. <DM> *You see the ferocious pirate ship, helmed by at least 20 Zolas, though with enough space to helm 20 more easily. 50 more if they're small Kokiri fellas, assuming they're not cooked and eaten first.
  12. <Darte> (all I can picture now are the Moana coconut pirate things)
  13. <DM> *Weapons of all kind have been seared and forged into its sides, creating a sort of battle hull. At the front of the ship, there's a great skull with sharp, pointy Zola-like teeth, resembling a hungry piranha. Atop it, at its bow, seems to be a big ol' cannon, and you can see some sort of glowy generator on the deck, forming some sort of water barrier in front of the ship.
  14. <DM> *Lined across the sides are Clawshot Turrets, 5 on each side... well, 4 on one, thanks to Darte's entrance incidentally giving you one.
  15. * Darte gives a Terminator thumbs-up
  16. <DM> *Melizea and Silver-haired Tower Shield, you two see your old fish friend, as a crispy fillet, somehow give a thumbs up. It's... kinda disturbing. You're not sure you'd want to eat that afterall.
  17. * Melizea isn't disturbed in the slightest, considering it probably happens everyday anyway.
  18. <DM> *Anywho, in the waters surrounding the ship, there's about... oh, 20 more Zolas. So technically, you outnumber them, though keep in mind, half your Kokiri are either wounded or tending to the wounded.
  19. <DM> *How a boat of this size is managing to stay afloat in this river, especially given it's taking half the river width, you're not entirely sure, though you might guess it has something to do with that mystical purply lightning generator thingy.
  20. <DM> *Alongside you, Mido gets ready to- oh wait. He doesn't! He's on the other side of the gap!
  21. <DM> *He calls out to you all, loud as he can. Which is surprisingly loud for a pipsqueak like him..
  22. <DM> [Mido]: OOOOOOOI! GET ME BACK OVER THERE!
  23. <Melizea> (how wide is the gap again)
  24. <DM> *With him nicely separated from the rest of you all, you notice the ship aim one of its Clawshot Turrets at him.
  25. <DM> (About 100 feet)
  26. <DM> *Darte, with your thumbs-up willpower, you manage to return to life in your usual auto-revive fashion. Your fillet grows feet, stands up on its own, and reforms itself into a full-bodied Zora, albeit with crispy skin.
  27. <DM> *Annnd with the pirate ship entering range... let's do this!
  28. <Melizea> (so, uh, is it the start of a round or)
  29. <DM> *Round 1, STARTO!*
  30. <Melizea> (oh)
  31. <Melizea> 15h, 6m | +2 Magic Regen (Skill), +3 Regen (Skill) | +7 ATK Dice (Robe +4, Fire Armlet +3), +4 Armor (Armor) | Force Meter: 25 pts
  32. * Melizea recovers some magic.
  33. <Melizea> 15h, 8m | +2 Magic Regen (Skill), +3 Regen (Skill) | +7 ATK Dice (Robe +4, Fire Armlet +3), +4 Armor (Armor) | Force Meter: 25 pts
  34. <Darte> 0h5m | Fish-Fil-A
  35. <DM> *Alongside you, Saria tries to reform her magic, though she ends up falling to the ground.
  36. * Sephiroth augmentates his robe, and instantly casts Meteor, dubbing the pirate ship itself the target.
  37. <DM> [Saria]: Ugh. I can't quite aid you yet. I'll protect the wounded for now.
  38. <Darte> (I assume the fairy can take effect here?)
  39. <DM> (Fairy?)
  40. <Darte> (Sorry; standard fairy)
  41. <DM> (Ah. If you wanna fairy yourself, you can, I suppose.)
  42. <DM> *There's a rumble from the sky, though nothing drops just yet...
  43. <Melizea> "If we can somehow aim for that purple electrical generator, it may do something."
  44. <Melizea> (i forgot what meteor did again)
  45. <DM> *Saria falls back and starts casting barriers around the wounded. The other Kokiri, those under Mido's fighting force and are still able to fight, ready their swords.
  46. <Sephiroth> 37h, 25m | Nayru's Love: 100h | (Meteor (Round 3 Hit) - Pirate Ship) | Augmented Robes (Enemies lose 6 attack dice)
  47. <DM> *With Zolas manning every turret, they all fire the Clawshot Turrets at the Kokiri! Annnd all of them are downed a bit by a certain robe...
  48. <DM> *Guess that drops the Zola chance for landing this from 1d2 to 1d3...
  49. <DM> *Zolas = 2, Kokiri = Odds
  50. <DM> $1d3
  51. <Navi> DM: You rolled 1 Die with 3 Sides. Result: 1.
  52. <DM> *The clawshot turrets find, but with this distance and Sephiroth's slowdown effect, the nimble Kokiri manage to evade the clawshots! The claws then quickly retract back towards the ship.
  53. * Darte 's filet-eyes open as a fairy pops from one of his bottles bobbing about in the river, reviving him.
  54. <DM> *From the waters, the Zolas there fire a collective burst of Boilblasts! Some of them target the Kokiri; some target you two, Melizea and Sephiroth! Roll Wisdom to defend!
  55. <DM> Roll your Wisdom +4 dice vs. targets' Wisdom dice
  56. <DM> Damage: +4
  57. <DM> EFFECT: If it hits, target gets Boiled:
  58. <DM> Every time the target moves, does any action, or defends, they take 2 Neutral Damage.
  59. <DM> $22d10 vs. Melizea
  60. <Navi> DM: You rolled 22 Dice with 10 Sides. Results: 3, 1, 4, 9, 4, 9, 6, 3, 5, 9, 8, 2, 2, 9, 7, 5, 1, 9, 7, 3, 8 and 1. Total: 115. Successes: 12.

  65. <DM> .... and between that -6 attack dice effect and the lack of attack bonuses from these guys, I'm starting to think maaaaybe just maybe, this is gonna end a lot faster than I thought
  66. * Melizea expends two magic on the Magic Feather for a +3 def dice.
  67. <Melizea> $25d10
  68. <Navi> Melizea: You rolled 25 Dice with 10 Sides. Results: 4, 4, 3, 7, 7, 8, 9, 8, 8, 4, 7, 9, 5, 10, 8, 4, 4, 5, 6, 9, 1, 4, 6, 10 and 8. Total: 158. Successes: 19.
  69. <Melizea> 15h, 6m | +2 Magic Regen (Skill), +3 Regen (Skill) | +7 ATK Dice (Robe +4, Fire Armlet +3), +4 Armor (Armor) | Force Meter: 25 pts
  70. <DM> *Whelp, the boilblasts hardly graze you at you, feeling like nothing more than a warm water bath to wash off the dirt and sweat up this point. Thanks, Zolas!
  71. <DM> *And with those boilblasts ineffective against you two, the Kokiri find no issue whatsoever shielding against them.
  72. <DM> (uhh what are the Kokiri names again- screw it, using generic monikers)
  73. <DM> [Kokiri]: That all they got? Let's return the favor! Flash 'em, boys!
  74. <DM> .......
  75. <DM> okay lemme reword that
  76. <Darte> (...)
  77. <DM> [Kokiri]: Deku Nut 'em boy-
  78. <DM> god frigin' dangit
  79. <DM> it's just as bad
  80. <Sephiroth> (...)
  81. <Melizea> (for once, it wasn't any of us that said any of this)
  82. * Darte thinks this attack is illegal in several countries.
  83. <Melizea> (it's even worse when you remember what kokiri kinda are)
  84. <DM> *Whelp, your uhh... ummm... small friends put their small bods to work and uhh.... fire a barrage of Deku Nuts at the opponent. With their slingshots.
  85. <DM> Kokiri = 1, Zolas = 2
  86. <DM> $1d2
  87. <Navi> DM: You flipped 1 coin. Result: Tails.
  88. <Melizea> (my turn has yet to happen, and i am still slow at this)
  89. <DM> *It seems their flashers are ineffective against the carnivorous might of these Zola Pirates. Their deku nuts fall short of the ship, flashing nothing but the grass.
  90. <DM> (Go nuts)
  91. <DM> .......
  92. <DM> (That was not meant to....... Excuse me)
  93. * DM jumps off a cliff.
  94. * Darte thinks it's time for Darte to kill DM for once.
  95. <Sephiroth> BREAKING NEWS: DM commits Seppuku, More at 10.
  96. <Melizea> (so are there multiple ships)
  97. * DM lifts the Darte up, Monty Python style, and uses Darte's seppuku skills to commit seppuku.
  98. <Darte> (Only the one, by the description)
  99. * DM drops the Darte back on the ground.
  100. <DM> wait, did I mention other ships at the end of last session?
  101. <Melizea> (that's why i was asking)
  102. <DM> (hmm, looks like I didn't)
  103. <DM> *Okay, there's just the one big ol' ship.
  104. * Darte quakes in invisible hand overload.
  105. <Darte> (Also uncertain from my end: do I get an action post-Fairy?)
  106. <DM> (ah, yes, go ahead)
  107. <Sephiroth> (If I recall, you were given an automatic free fairy to start off)
  108. * Melizea switches over to her Traveler's Cloak
  109. <Darte> (Ah. Don't know how I missed that. El derp)
  110. * DM returns Darte's fairy back to its bottle, full of life. Unless you want to devour its life.
  111. * Darte keeps the fairies, because he'll probably gosh-darn need them now.
  112. <DM> *Your fairy continues to await its eventual doom in your captivity. And by that, I mean its soon-to-be doom.
  113. * Darte chugs a Super Rejuvenation Potion, and appraises the situation briefly before slamming the Phantasm Spear into the deck of the ship. "Okay, what in Hyrule did you lot /DO/??"
  114. <Darte> Spirit Barrier:
  115. <Darte> COSTS: 7 Magic
  116. <Darte> DESCRIPTION: After feeding your Magic into this spear drive it into the ground, producing a barrier that protects you and all allies from negative status effects until it falls.
  117. <Darte> EFFECT: Roll Wisdom and summon a Spirit Barrier:
  118. <Darte> It has Hearts equal to half the result of your roll.
  119. <Darte> Whenever any ally would receive a Negative Bonus or a non-charge Status Effect, you can choose to have the barrier block it.
  120. <Melizea> (apparently i listed my shield being equipped before battle and now i didn't have it equipped... so uhhhh... it's equipped now as well)
  121. <Darte> Blocking Negative Bonus depletes Hearts equal to the amount of Negative Bonus blocked
  122. <Darte> Blocking a non-charge Status Effect depletes 5 Hearts
  123. <Darte> When the barrier falls to 0 Hearts, the barrier falls.
  124. <Darte> Only one Spirit Barrier can be active over your party at a time.
  125. <Darte> $28d10
  126. <Navi> Darte: You rolled 28 Dice with 10 Sides. Results: 10, 2, 7, 6, 5, 1, 9, 8, 7, 5, 5, 6, 3, 3, 10, 10, 2, 5, 9, 9, 8, 3, 3, 3, 1, 3, 7 and 7. Total: 157. Successes: 21.
  127. <Melizea> 15h, 6m | +2 Magic Regen (Skill), +5 Regen (+3 Skill, +2 Shield) | +3 ATK Dice (Fire Armlet +3), +8 DEF Dice (+4 Robe, +4 Shield), +4 Armor (Armor) | Force Meter: 25 pts
  128. <Darte> 27h 9m | Spirit Barrier (11h)
  129. * Sephiroth wonders how Darte got onto the ship to drive his spear into its deck like that.
  130. <DM> (wait a minute, did I say you were on the ship?)
  131. <Sephiroth> (You did not)
  132. <Darte> ("Your fillet grows feet, stands up on its own, and reforms itself into a full-bodied Zora, albeit with crispy skin.")
  133. <Melizea> (was gonna say that you didn't as well)
  134. <Darte> ("Stood up" implied at least on land, if not on ship)
  135. <Melizea> (and i am still trying to figure out my actions)
  136. <Darte> (So your call)
  137. <DM> (hmm... okay, let's do this then)
  138. <Sephiroth> (I was assuming on the riverside by the rest of the party)
  139. <DM> *Okay, you use your Phantasm Spear to apparently uhhh first literally dart yourself onto the ship (I have no idea how), and then apparently make a Spirit Barrier that somehow reaches between both you and your party, despite you being on the ship.
  140. <DM> *Let's just say you through the spear, grabbed ahold (what) and then me-doken'd onto the ship. Because that's what dead flying fish do!
  141. <Darte> (Oop. Misunderstood. Right, yes, riverside)
  142. <DM> *Melizea, got anything?
  143. <Darte> (Keep this low-complication)
  144. <DM> *Darte, up aboard the ship, the Zola are surprised to see you land, but... oddly they kinda just.. ignore you.
  145. <DM> *In front of you, there's the big ol' purply lightning generator orb. You can see several Zola next to it, using their shock resistance so they can touch the orb, and... do something, I guess.
  146. <DM> (Uhh, Melizea, you haven't done anything this round yet, have you?)
  147. <Melizea> (there's a lot to take in here yeah)
  148. * Melizea attempts to fire a Magic Missile at the generator.
  149. <Melizea> COSTS: 5 Magic
  150. <Melizea> DESCRIPTION: With the power to attack the darkness itself, this missile of Arcane energy packs a punch.
  151. <Melizea> Roll your Wisdom +7 dice vs. targets' Wisdom dice
  152. <Melizea> Damage: +5
  153. <Sephiroth> (A lot is an understatement.)
  154. <Sephiroth> (Just don't mind impending doom looming overhead.)
  155. <Melizea> $32d10
  156. <Navi> Melizea: You rolled 32 Dice with 10 Sides. Results: 2, 5, 4, 2, 7, 1, 7, 1, 2, 5, 9, 8, 9, 3, 4, 2, 6, 3, 1, 7, 7, 10, 5, 5, 2, 7, 8, 3, 10, 5, 9 and 2. Total: 161. Successes: 20.
  157. <DM> (it's gunna get worse, cause I'm a stupid DM that loves to complicate matters!)
  158. <Melizea> (rolling for crit just because)
  159. <Melizea> $1d3
  160. <Darte> (Darte does Elmo-fire pose as Meteor nukes him and the ship)
  161. <Navi> Melizea: You rolled 1 Die with 3 Sides. Result: 3.
  162. <Melizea> (oh the crit landed)
  163. <DM> *You launch your Magic Missile from afar, but before it can strike the generator, it impacts the Water Barrier at the front of the ship!
  164. <Melizea> 15h, 1m | +2 Magic Regen (Skill), +5 Regen (+3 Skill, +2 Shield) | +3 ATK Dice (Fire Armlet +3), +8 DEF Dice (+4 Robe, +4 Shield), +4 Armor (Armor) | Ice Materia Equipped | Force Meter: 25 pts
  165. <DM> *You see the generator pulse as the Magic Missile impacts the barrier. One of the nearby Zola gets slightly shocked back, but is otherwise fine.
  166. <DM> 20 * 1.5 = 30 damage
  167. <DM> *The great Water Barrier drops from a good 100 Hearts to 70 Hearts.
  168. <DM> (that everything?)
  169. <DM> (alrighty then...)
  170. <Melizea> (yeah, can't really do much)
  171. <DM> *First round, over!*
  172. <DM> *Second round, start!*
  173. <Sephiroth> (So. Question. With the large amount of foes, does that mean Sephiroth gets practically a full magic rejuive with his lantern of doom?
  174. <Melizea> 15h, 3m | +2 Magic Regen (Skill), +5 Regen (+3 Skill, +2 Shield) | +3 ATK Dice (Fire Armlet +3), +8 DEF Dice (+4 Robe, +4 Shield), +4 Armor (Armor) | Ice Materia Equipped | Force Meter: 25 pts
  175. <DM> (*sigh*)
  176. <DM> (Yes)
  177. * Melizea has gotten some magic regenned)
  178. <Darte> (Queue of Meteors)
  179. * Sephiroth siphons 1 magic from each and every Zola.
  180. <Melizea> (... oh, i could have used Focus Mana... OH WELL)
  181. <DM> *You notice the Water Barrier expands a moment, dipping into the river. The gaps in the barrier caused by the Magic Missile are reformed, restoring it to 100 Hearts.
  182. * Sephiroth pays his robe's augmentation upkeep.
  183. <Melizea> (or i could have used Guard... OH WELL AGAIN)
  184. <DM> *You also notice, from the cannon at its bow, lightning starts to spark and glow from within...
  185. <DM> *All the Zolas in the river, instead of boilblasting you, decide to cast Steamblade on themselves. They'd cast again, but a certain someone dropped their magic by 1 too much...
  186. <DM> *Those on the ship, they instead decide to focus all their port turrets at Mido!
  187. <DM> Zolas = Odds, Mido = 2
  188. <DM> $1d3
  189. <Navi> DM: You rolled 1 Die with 3 Sides. Result: 1.
  190. <DM> *Mido manages to dodge the first clawshot or so, but the third one catches the little fella and reels him in!
  191. <DM> *With him on the other side of the river, you find yourselves unable to assist him. Not without getting yourselves onto the boat...
  192. <DM> *Except Darte, who's already on the boat!
  193. * Sephiroth casts Steel Shadows and Shadow Speed on himself.
  194. <DM> *Darte, you see a loudmouth pipsqueak get pulled in by one of the turrets, then quickly locked inside of a net to restrain him. Towards the backside of the deck, you see a large uhhh.... boiling pot, where they toss Fran in. It's just filled with warm water... for now.
  195. <Sephiroth> 37h, 24m | Nayru's Love: 100h | (Meteor (Round 3 Hit) - Pirate Ship) | Augmented Robes (Enemies lose 6 attack dice) | +5 Power & Courage
  196. * Darte turns slowly about, striving not to draw attention to himself.
  197. <DM> *The remaining Zolas on the ship Steamblade themselves, drawing their tridents out. They end up not firing Clawshots this turn, as the boat continues to move further upstream.
  198. <DM> *The distance between you all and the Zola pirates shortens...
  199. * Darte reaches behind him for the Ice Rod, lashing it in front of him towards the Zola around the generator, and fires a Gale of Ice!
  200. <Darte> "Let's stop this thing!"
  201. * Sephiroth points out impending doom looming overhead.
  202. <DM> (when's the meteor hit, next round?)
  203. <Melizea> (should be)
  204. <Sephiroth> (Yep)
  205. <DM> *Roll it, Darte!
  206. <Darte> $47d10
  207. <Navi> Darte: You rolled 47 Dice with 10 Sides. Results: 3, 5, 4, 9, 6, 5, 3, 4, 2, 2, 7, 5, 4, 3, 8, 4, 9, 5, 3, 3, 9, 5, 10, 7, 7, 9, 1, 6, 10, 9, 8, 3, 4, 1, 1, 9, 5, 4, 3, 7, 6, 10, 2, 9, 2, 9 and 2. Total: 252. Successes: 29.
  208. <Melizea> (did the kokiri do anything yet)
  209. <DM> (ah right)
  210. <DM> *Since the Zola doesn't have its trident out, it doesn't have a defensive bonus on this...
  211. <DM> $24d10
  212. <Navi> DM: You rolled 24 Dice with 10 Sides. Results: 10, 4, 5, 3, 3, 10, 3, 9, 6, 1, 9, 1, 1, 8, 9, 4, 1, 9, 4, 10, 3, 8, 3 and 9. Total: 133. Successes: 15.
  213. <DM> *Your Gale of Ice strikes the Zola, knocking it away from the generator!
  214. <Darte> Damage: Halved
  215. <Darte> EFFECT 1: Target loses 3 Attack Dice & 5 Courage
  216. <Darte> EFFECT 2: This causes any Water and Water-affinity enemies to freeze around where the gale struck.
  217. <Darte> They also get Delayed:
  218. <Darte> Target’s next attack is delayed by 2 Turns, which then removes Delayed.
  219. <DM> *It ends up partially frozen next to the great pot.
  220. <Darte> (And any others near the generator / gale, if there are any)
  221. <DM> (ah, hit-all, right)
  222. <Darte> (Damages one, freezes many)
  223. <Darte> (I had to double-check the phrasing too)
  224. <DM> *Correction, you knock away all three Zolas around the generator, partially freezing them!
  225. <DM> *One of the Zolas manning the turrets turns towards you, surprised. It raises its Trident at it, then lowers its, cocking its head to the side. It then tries to... speak? Though it's more like a low hiss...
  226. <DM> [Zola]: You.... Zora.... Attack us... Why?
  227. <DM> *It points at its scales, then your scales.
  228. <DM> [Zola]: Us... The saaaaaaame...
  229. <DM> *Meanwhile, the Kokiri are preparing... ropes?
  230. <DM> (screw it, it's more fun to randomize names for em, let's do this)
  231. * Darte glares right back. "You assault my companions, and the people of the Forest. My people wouldn't stand for this barbarism."
  232. <DM> [Kilton]: Looks like our nuts didn't work. We'll have to ride 'em!
  233. <DM> [Jenkins]: Time to climb aboard. Just need to get a liiiiittle closer!
  234. <DM> *The Zola stares back at you, perplexed.
  235. <DM> [Zola]: Zola... need.... foooood...
  236. <DM> [Zola]: Not barbarity. Food. Surviiiiivaaaaal.
  237. <Melizea> "Knowing Sephiroth, I'd advise against going aboard."
  238. <DM> *From above, the sky rumbles once more. There's the dark clouds from the afar slowing expanding, but this rumble seems to be caused by... something else.
  239. * Darte points the Ice Rod downwards. "Then seek the bounty of the seas."
  240. <DM> [Zola]: Seas? No seas.... Only rockssssss.
  241. * Darte 's eyes narrow. "What?"
  242. <DM> [Zola]: Mad Lady... destroyed river. No river, no seas. Only Kokiri flesh! HUNGER!
  243. <Melizea> (yeah, don't really have much i could do aside from maybe giving myself a +5 to a random stat and awaiting inevitable doom)
  244. <Melizea> (meteorites anybody?)
  245. <DM> *There's a chorus of hissing and battle cries from those aboard, as they ready to tear the Kokiri limb from limb... though of course, they don't exactly know about the impending rock of doom.
  246. * Darte spins a Bioelectric Field around Mido. (Thorns)
  247. <DM> *Mido's about to try and free himself, but your bioelectric field ends up shocking him, courtesies of being in water. He ends up passing out... in the water. Annnd given he's so small, well... he's now drowning a tad.
  248. * Darte shakes his head sadly. "Lord Jabu-Jabu, send a way..."
  249. <Darte> (welp)
  250. <DM> (all done this round?)
  251. <Melizea> (yeah)
  252. <DM> *Round 2, over!*
  253. <DM> *Round 3, start!*
  254. <DM> annnnnnnnnnd
  255. * Sephiroth siphons 1 magic from each and every Zola.
  256. <Melizea> 15h, 5m | +2 Magic Regen (Skill), +5 Regen (+3 Skill, +2 Shield) | +3 ATK Dice (Fire Armlet +3), +8 DEF Dice (+4 Robe, +4 Shield), +4 Armor (Armor) | Ice Materia Equipped | Force Meter: 25 pts
  257. <DM> *That rumbling from the sky grows and grows....
  258. * Sephiroth also pays his robe's augmentation upkeep.
  259. * Melizea recovers some magic.
  260. <DM> *Suddenly, the the clouds of the sunset sky above part, and from above, a great Meteor descends on the Pirate Ship!
  261. <Sephiroth> Meteor: Shall I give you… despair?
  262. <Sephiroth> RESTRICTIONS: You cannot call down another Meteor until the existing one has hit
  263. <Melizea> (err, recovered, since i posted the status before i posted about the magic regen)
  264. <Sephiroth> COSTS: 15 Magic
  265. <Sephiroth> DESCRIPTION: Summon a meteor from the heavens, threatening to annihilate the entire area. As it gets closer and closer, sound gets drowned out as the whole area shakes, trembling in fear of the impending doom. Two rounds after casting this, it will strike your target, decimating what remains while also dealing severe damage to everyone else with a fiery shockwave. Hits everyone except yourself.
  266. <Sephiroth> EFFECT: Bypasses Cover
  267. <Sephiroth> Roll the total of your Power, Courage, & Wisdom +30 dice vs. targets’ total of their Power, Courage, & Wisdom dice
  268. <Sephiroth> Damage: +30
  269. <Sephiroth> Everyone except the Target takes +0 instead of +30.
  270. <Sephiroth> EFFECT: If the Target is killed, they cannot be revived for the remainder of the battle.
  271. <Melizea> (so power, courage, and wisdom before defense dice?)
  272. <Sephiroth> $105d10
  273. <Navi> Sephiroth: You rolled 105 Dice with 10 Sides. Total: 560. Successes: 72.
  274. <DM> *Darte, the Zola talking to you immediately dives for the generator, and the shield shifts upwards!
  275. * Darte looks up, and curses. "Sephiroth, you sonofa--"
  276. <DM> *The meteor ends up striking the barrier, though with its 72 + 30 damage...
  277. * Darte chugs a Chateau Romani, using it to flash to Mido and attempt to drag him over the edge of the to-be-demo'd boat.
  278. <DM> *The meteor explodes across the barrier, shattering it in a single hit! The Zola next to the generator is flung off the ship by a massive discharge! The cascading explosive force from the meteor still hits everyone on the ship for +0 damage, which is....
  279. <Darte> (*SWEAT*)
  280. <DM> $68d10 Zolas
  281. <Navi> DM: You rolled 68 Dice with 10 Sides. Total: 329. Successes: 39.
  282. <DM> $calc 72 - 39
  283. <Kefka> 72 - 39 = 33
  284. <DM> -6 from armor annnnd
  285. <DM> *Yeah, everyone on the boat turns into a crispy fillet, with a sprinkle of meteor seasoning.
  286. <DM> *Darte, are you jumping overboard to dodge it?
  287. <Darte> That was the aim, with Mido in tow if the flash took effect.
  288. <DM> *You flash Mido out of there, outflashing your Kokiri comrades, and you dive straight into the water! Roll to defend the meteor.
  289. <Darte> (Standard defense roll?)
  290. <DM> (well Power + Courage + Wisdom + defense dice)
  291. <Darte> $calc 16+42+30+5
  292. <Kefka> 16+42+30+5 = 93

  295. <DM> ............
  296. <Darte> (!!!!!!!)
  297. <DM> are you frrigin' serious
  298. <Melizea> (oh god)
  299. <DM> WHELP
  300. <DM> ROLLOFF AGAINST SEPHIROTH'S METEOR
  301. <Sephiroth> (Can I choose not to rolloff and call it a draw?)
  302. <DM> (I suppose so...)
  303. <Melizea> (pretty sure the chances of that happening is just)
  304. <Darte> (Almost as close as that 1/100 critfail Fran rolled)
  305. <Melizea> (i feel like it's a lot lower than that)
  306. <DM> *In a surprise stroke of luck, you manage to barrel roll mid-flight while deflecting the shockwave of the meteor. Thanks to self-darting skills, you somehow manage to ride the shockwave of the meteor out, landing on the riverside, instead of into the hungry jaws of the piranha-teethed Zola below.
  307. <Darte> (MMm. 70% is a bit high for my roll, a bit low for Seph, so we just met in the middle)
  308. <DM> [Biggs]: Aye, a big rock fell outta nowhere and nuked the fish fries!
  309. <DM> [Wedge]: Let's raid 'em, boys!
  310. <DM> [Jenkins]: CHAAAAAARGE!
  311. <Darte> (Welp)
  312. <DM> *Congratulations, Sephiroth, you've just given the opportunity for the Kokiri to become pirates.
  313. <Melizea> (y'know, this probably beats trying to find a safe space)
  314. <DM> *The Kokiri swing aboard the ship, and make quick work of packing the extra fried meat aboard into some storage containers.
  315. <DM> guess the battle's over...
  316. <Darte> (So you could say they've become Lord of the Fly-ing Dutchman)
  317. * Darte should probably just seppuku now and save himself the trouble.
  318. <Melizea> (next stop: geulia)
  319. <DM> *With the Zola up top easily fat-fried, the Zola below in the river decide to make haste and get the heck outta there, swimming back downstream. Do you guys decide to make haste or let em leave?
  320. <Melizea> "I must say... I did not anticipate this outcome of the Kokiri."
  321. <DM> *Darte, meanwhile, near where you landed, you notice the one Zola you were talking to is nearby, unconscious but still alive.
  322. <Melizea> (how long did this battle take from the start of the session to now?)
  323. <DM> *Mido wakes up from within your grasp.
  324. <DM> (uhhhhhhhhhhhhh)
  325. <DM> (NOT LONG AT ALL IT SEEMS)
  326. * Sephiroth puts his shades on and walks away.
  327. <Melizea> (my brain kinda turned itself off from the information overload)
  328. <DM> [Mido]: *coughing* Ack, get yer stinky fishpaws offa me, ya big dumb fish!
  329. * Darte lets Mido go, and picks himself up, shading his eyes at the departing Zola, before turning to the survey the unconscious one.
  330. <DM> (yeah, I thought for some reason there was hope of a more challenging, complex battle, but... it would seem I once against underestimated the power of Meteor-man.)
  331. * Melizea switches back to her Assault Vest.
  332. <Melizea> 15h, 5m | Ice Materia and Regeneration Shield Equipped | Wearing Hylian Mask | Force Meter: 25 pts
  333. <DM> *Mido ukemis away and loads himself onto the ship, admiring what a fine piece of work it is.
  334. <DM> [Mido]: Now this... THIS is what I'm talkin' about!
  335. <DM> [Mido]: Hey Saria, we should just load the Deku Tree onto this baby and become riverfolk!
  336. * Darte folds his arms, frowning at the piranha face of the Zola. "Mad... Lady..."
  337. <Sephiroth> (If only that barrier didn't exist, that ship would've been nothing but a pile o' splinters.)
  338. <DM> *For reference, although the Pirate Ship is sizeable, it's still half the size of the Deku Tree's trunk.
  339. <Melizea> "Hey Darte, are you nearby?"
  340. <DM> (Ah, but... don't you prefer the ship intact?)
  341. * Darte blinks, then turns. "Over here. We might have trouble."
  342. * Melizea heads over to Darte, staying cautious.
  343. <DM> *The lone Zola starts to come around. It looks up at you, Darte, then sees the Kokiri hijacking its old ship. The fellow immediately turns violent, though it's still weakened by the lightning blast, and it ends up flopping on the ground, biting into the grass and spitting out dirt.
  344. <Melizea> "What appears to be the issue?"
  345. * Darte points to the unconscious Zola. "Caught a couple words before that blasted Meteor hit. They said a Mad Lady blew up the rivers. They seemed... desperate, not aimless-- dangit, calm down." He sets a Red Potion down in front of the Zola, moving between it and the river.
  346. <DM> *The Zola gobbles down the red potion, glass and out. It recovers from its burn wounds, though it spits out some of the potion.
  347. <DM> [Zola]: Blech. Not blood. Bad drink.
  348. <DM> [Zola]: Ship... you stole.... SHIP!
  349. <Melizea> "Is it perhaps a Keaton named Memphis?"
  350. * Darte winces. "Right. C'mon. Best we've got. Listen. What's this about a Mad Lady? What happened to our seas?"
  351. <DM> *The lone Zola stops, turning towards Melizea. It nods.
  352. <DM> [Zola]: Memphis... You know Mad Lady?
  353. * Darte blinks.
  354. <Melizea> "We heard from some Deku Scrubs."
  355. * Melizea starts to fill them in on what transpired during the attempted negotiations.
  356. <DM> *You ramble on about some exposition, and of course, the only proper response....
  357. <DM> [Zola]: EXPOSITION?!
  358. <DM> [Zola]: Mad Lady... wanted Ship. Wanted... Lightning
  359. <Melizea> "We didn't take the Deku Scrubs on their offer since we were uncertain of many things."
  360. <DM> [Zola]: Good. Scrubs bad. Rip us off.
  361. <DM> [Zola]: Scrubs not tasty...
  362. <DM> *Zola points at the side of the ship hull.
  363. * Darte snorts. "That seems normal. Aaaaand /that/ does not."
  364. <DM> [Zola]: But Scrubs good wood!
  365. <DM> *Now that he points that out, you notice some... irregularities in the planks constructing the ship. Some of them have uhh.... eyes? Mouths?
  366. <Darte> (welp, you squicked Orithan)
  367. <DM> *There even seems to be some flowers decorating the hull.
  368. <DM> (pfft)
  369. * Melizea sighs at the sight.
  370. * Darte turns a little green. "... Well."
  371. <DM> [Zola]: Memphis... Horrible weapons... Wants... Lightning...
  372. <DM> *It points at the ship's generator, which has gone... dormant, thanks to someone one-shotting the shield.
  373. <Melizea> "Tell you what, we were about to head over to the Keaton Fortress for negotiations."
  374. <DM> *The cannon that was also charging up has also stopped.
  375. * Darte frowns. "And she attacked a river to get it? Or to stop you from fleeing with it?"
  376. <DM> [Zola]: Don't know. But river gone.
  377. <DM> [Zola]: Just like field gone.
  378. <Melizea> "Since the Deku Scrubs mentioned that Memphis went mad, and this fellow Zola also said she went mad..."
  379. <DM> *Mido, having listened in on the conversation, and powerhungry from his ship, decides to input a word or two.
  380. * Darte shakes his head. "Can barely make heads or fins of this. But safe to say there's a mad Keaton on the rampage?"
  381. <DM> [Mido]: Hey kids, I got a great idea. We got a nice new ship here, and this Memphis fella has some nasty weapons. Surely there's room aboard the ship for some weapons, eh fellas?
  382. <DM> *The Zola looks at Mido, and it just slowly shakes its head.
  383. <DM> [Zola]: Little man stoopid.
  384. <DM> [Mido]: Hey, who ya callin' "stoopid", ya stupid?!
  385. <Melizea> "It is possible that Memphis may have been inflicted by some sort of... madness, shall we say."
  386. <DM> [Mido]: Well, she is a... Mad Lady, amiright?
  387. <DM> *He winks and points a pair of fingers at you.
  388. <DM> [Mido]: ... no? Nothin'?
  389. <Melizea> "I'm afraid it's potentially far worse, if our other adventure is anything to go by."
  390. <DM> [Mido]: *sigh* Well, regardless of this Mad Lady, I say we stick to the original plan. Go up the river, get the Zoras. Not these knock-off tooth-aches. Who cares if this Keaton fella is wreckin' havoc round here? We're escapin' a war, fellas.
  391. <Melizea> "There is no guarantee that the Zoras are safe either."
  392. <DM> [Mido]: Exactly, and now we got a big ol' boat to help 'em- wait what's wrong with the boat.
  393. <DM> *You folks notice the boat starting sink. Slowly, but it's sinking.
  394. * Darte frowns. "I'm not liking that thing he keeps saying: no river, no sea, no plains. Something horrible's happening."
  395. <DM> [Mido]: HEY, CHECK FOR HOLES, DIMWITS!
  396. <DM> *One of the Kokiri calls back.
  397. <DM> [Porkins]: We plugged tha holes, it's still sinkin'!
  398. <DM> [Mido]: PLUG YER OWN HOLE, USE SOME MUSCLE!
  399. <Melizea> "Methinks it's the generator."
  400. <DM> *Porkins flips Mido off and goes back to figuring something out.
  401. <DM> [Mido]: The generator, huh?
  402. <DM> [Mido]: Well I'd certainly like to find a way to power it!
  403. <DM> [Mido]: Hey you, Zola fella, yer good with magical lightning orbs, aren'tcha? Do somethin' about it, will ya?
  404. <DM> *The Zola spits some glass shards out at Mido's face.
  405. <DM> [Zola]: Do it yerself.
  406. <Melizea> "Perhaps we could use the ship to negotiate with the Keaton."
  407. <Melizea> "We may need all the help available for this war."
  408. * Darte sighs, and kneels in front of the Zola. "Look. Whatever's driving your people to hunger is probably going to drive ours to the same. If there's a war coming, the Zora should have backup supplies in store. We can make it stretch."
  409. <DM> *Mido removes a now-bleeding shard of glass from his face, using a Healing Beam to heal the wound. He turns towards you all, dusting himself off as if there was no glass in his face at all.
  410. <DM> [Zola]: ...
  411. <DM> *The Zola turns to the side for a moment, contemplating what you're saying.
  412. <DM> [Zola]: My people. Food first. Then help. With more food.
  413. <DM> [Mido]: Y'know, there's a bunch of crispy fillets back on ship, I'm sure that could be used as food...
  414. * Darte turns somehow greener.
  415. <DM> *Zola growls at Mido, baring all of its teeth, hissing violently at him. However, the Zola doesn't lash out.
  416. <Melizea> "Mido, pretty certain that's what we call cannibalism."
  417. * Sephiroth inserts face into his palm and backs away.
  418. <DM> *Congratulations, Sephiroth, you've officially imbued your palm with the face of your face, successfully melding the two together. From now on, you shall now be referred to as: The One Winged Facepalm
  419. * Sephiroth kicks DM out the window.
  420. * You have been kicked from #zurpg by Sephiroth (You have been kicked out the window and you landed on Black Mage! Uh oh, you better run Black Mage is charging Hadoken! «20,371»)
  421. <DM> (kay, I deserved that- OH GOD NOT A HADOKEN)
  422. <DM> *The cries of the DM are washed away by a giant laser across the sky, piercing the fourth wall.
  423. <DM> [Mido]: Oh come ooooon, it was just a little joke! But in all seriousness, we do have food on the ship now.
  424. <DM> [Mido]: ... Just sayin'.
  425. <DM> [Mido]: *sighs* Fine. What do you eat, anyways?
  426. <DM> [Zola]: Little one. Your leader, Zora?
  427. <Melizea> "Okay, so our options are to head to the Zoras, where it may not be safe, and negotiating with the Keatons, which may provide us with some potential equipment."
  428. <DM> *Mido plops himself above Darte's head with a big ol' grin.
  429. <Darte> King Zora De Bon XVI, Prince of the Seas of Hyrule, Reigning Sovereign of the Is-- well. You get the drift.
  430. <DM> *Suddenly, the Zola scowls at you, Darte!
  431. <DM> [Zola]: De Bon XVI?!
  432. <Darte> (wuh-oh)
  433. <DM> [Zola]: HIM?! KING ZORA?
  434. <Melizea> "One of our priorities may be to rebuild our forces."
  435. <DM> [Zola]: FATSO! HAS ALL THE FOOD
  436. <DM> *Zola starts salivating.
  437. <DM> [Zola]: We eat Big Fat Zora's food. We help. Deal?
  438. <DM> *Zola gives you a very uhh... hungry smile.
  439. * Darte chides the Zola patiently. "That's what I said, yes. And more in the storehouses, assuming they haven't been blown to smithereens."
  440. <DM> [Zola]: Goood.... GOOOOOOD....
  441. <Melizea> "So, what of the ship?"
  442. <DM> [Zola]: Any meat, Zolas eat.
  443. <DM> [Zola]: Zolas can help with ship.
  444. <DM> [Zola]: But meat first. Then help ship.
  445. * Darte frowns. "Where are we going to find meat..."
  446. <DM> [Mido]: Hmm, any chance they like Keatons?
  447. <DM> [Mido]: Oh wait, we're trying to gain allies. Uhhh....
  448. * Melizea takes a mental note that Zolas = Carnivores 100%
  449. * Darte blanches. "I'm getting the feeling they like most things."
  450. <DM> [Mido]: I dunno, maybe they can gnaw on your scales a bit. You're a fishy friend, you die a lot. Like Fran! Surely you can serve as a temporary source of meat, right?
  451. <DM> *Zola spits more glass onto the ground.
  452. <DM> [Zola]: Zora. Bad chew. Little meat. All bones. Not good.
  453. <DM> [Zola]: Too much fin.
  454. <DM> [Mido]: And I'm sure us Kokiri wouldn't be much better!
  455. <Melizea> "What kinds of meat do you usually consume, if you don't mind?"
  456. <DM> [Zola]: Hmm...
  457. * Darte snorts. "You heard 'im. I'm bad food. (So tell DM to stop serving him up as tasty dishes!)"
  458. <Melizea> (cue darte turning into food again)
  459. <DM> [Zola]: Octoroks. Big and juicy.
  460. <DM> [Zola]: Moblins. Goriyas. Burn well, good char, crispy meat.
  461. <DM> [Zola]: Lon Lon cows. Good source magic.
  462. <DM> [Zola]: Keaton... fur makes good coats. Meat tender.
  463. <Melizea> (y'know, now that i think about it, can octoroks speak)
  464. <DM> (whenever one shows up, you could always ask its rubbery snouth what language it knows)
  465. * Darte pinches the bridge of his nose. "Right. So the question is what we do with the Keatons. If this Mad Lady is leading them, may be best to just clean them up now."
  466. <DM> [Zola]: Massacre?
  467. <DM> [Zola]: Keaton... Keaton blood.... Tasty....
  468. <DM> *The Zola offers its hand.
  469. <DM> [Zola]: Us Zolas help you to fortress. Deliver Keaton, then help more. No Keaton, we eat little ones.
  470. <DM> [Zola]: Deal?
  471. <Melizea> (dammit darte)
  472. <Melizea> (we could have convinced them to eat octoroks instead)
  473. <Darte> (:D)
  474. <DM> (There's no telling what the Mad Lady has at that fort. Who knows, there might be another source of fresh, juicy meat there?)
  475. * Darte grimaces a little. Apparently he hasn't wholly learned from the Fran incident. He takes the webbed hand in his. "Right. That'll have to be our plan."
  476. <Melizea> "Well, the issue is that we're attempting to ally with the Keaton as well."
  477. <Melizea> "Tell you what, if we encounter any enemies that you can eat, it's all yours."
  478. <DM> *The Zola gives you stern stare Melizea. It grips Darte's hand tighter, with surprising force. These fishbois got some muscle on 'em.
  479. <DM> [Zola]: Bring other meat, we eat. If no meat, then Keaton.
  480. <Melizea> "Any leftover meat will go to the Zola first."
  481. <DM> [Zola]: Good.
  482. <DM> *Zola let's go of your hand.
  483. <DM> [Zola]: Return to Zola, I will. Return, I will.
  484. * Darte looks to Mel, shrugging sheepishly. "Maybe coming back with a joint force of Zola could convince them to hand over some of their meat stores, instead."
  485. <Melizea> (not sure if darte meant zola or zora there)
  486. <DM> *Broken speech Yoda the Zola bids you adieu, then dives into the water, swimming downstream..... for all of about 5 seconds.
  487. <DM> *Suddenly, a fireball strikes the backside of the ship!
  488. <Darte> (Zola)
  489. <DM> *The Zola jumps back up out of the water and onto the riverbank, along with the other Zola, who have already returned! Or more accurately, are escaping....
  490. <DM> *From downriver, you can see a flurry of more fireballs coming towards the ship!
  491. * Melizea sighs.
  492. <DM> *You don't see it, but you also hear the skittering of something arriving through the forest. A whole lot of something, too.
  493. <Melizea> "Looks like we should get moving."
  494. <DM> *You see your new Zola friend quickly communicate to the other Zolas through a series of fast-talking hisses, faster than you can comprehend.
  495. <DM> *All of sudden, the group of them launches Boilblasts at the incoming Fireballs!
  496. <DM> *They collide before they're able to strike the ship, creating a giant wall of steam behind you all!
  497. <DM> *Your Zola friend runs back up to you in a panic.
  498. <DM> [Zola]: PROTECT SHIP.
  499. <DM> [Zola]: PROTECC.
  500. <DM> [Mido]: Well color me sideways on a stick and stick me on a girdle- err, wait, no, don't do that. Seems they caught up. Let's ride!
  501. * Melizea looks towards Darte. "Do you perhaps have anything that could power the generator?"
  502. * Melizea walks over to the generator to inspect it.
  503. * Sephiroth quickly scans the forest in spirit mode.
  504. <Melizea> (y'know, where is silver-haired fellow during- oh)
  505. <DM> *Sephiroth, with your Spirit Vision, you quickly surmise there are dozens of Stalchildren approaching from the forest. And they seem to have learned that bunching up is a real bad idea. They're spread out, preparing to first surround you before engaging.
  506. * Darte frowns. "I've got a bit of something I could use myself, perhaps... Worth a shot."
  507. * Darte hops towards the ship. "Mido, get everyone loaded up! If this works, hopefully it'll get us moving!"
  508. <DM> *Further past that, all the way on the other end of the river, way downstream, there's a group of Deku Babas launching fireballs. You reckon they're firing from a good half a mile away, and yet somehow, their fireballs aren't getting dropped by gravity.
  509. <Melizea> (>gravity)
  510. <Melizea> (rip gravity materia)
  511. * Darte bats himself in the head. "Don't need that. Just some good, old-fashioned Zora know-how..."
  512. * Sephiroth attempts to warn the group, "..."
  513. <DM> *With Sephiroth's lack of words, he explains to you of the dangers coming from behind. Surprisingly, you understand him perfectly!
  514. <DM> *Stalchildren and Deku Babas are on their way!
  515. <DM> *He's like the silent protagonist of a game. Somehow, just by speaking in ellipses and nodding his head, anyone can understand him! It's a linguistic miracle!
  516. * Sephiroth kicks DM out the window.
  517. * You have been kicked from #zurpg by Sephiroth (You have been kicked out the window and you landed on Trolgre! Watch out for his super-massive club! «20,372»)
  518. <DM> (oh hai mark)
  519. <Melizea> "Ah, of course."
  520. <Darte> (hahahahah)
  521. * DM appears to just experience the Silver-Haired fellow's other form of language, as he pries a boot off his face.
  522. <Melizea> "Well, one thing for certain, this ship isn't like the ones back home."
  523. <DM> [Mido]: Alright! YOU HEARD THE FISH FILLET, EVERYONE, GET YER HINIES ONTO THE SHIP, GET IT SHIPWORTHY YA PINEHOLE GITS!
  524. <DM> *Somewhere in there, Mido went from "loud pipsqueak" to "Halfling Pirate Captain".
  525. * Melizea switches over to the Thunder Materia just in case.
  526. * Sephiroth makes a note to himself for later. ...
  527. <DM> *All the Kokiri quickly mobilize onto the ship, with the Zolas swimming alongside the boat.
  528. <Melizea> 15h, 5m | Thunder Materia and Regeneration Shield Equipped | Wearing Hylian Mask | Force Meter: 25 pts
  529. * Darte jumps to the generator, quaffing a Green Potion and charging his body with another Bio-Electric Field. "Let's see if this works." He reaches out to touch the generator
  530. * Sephiroth boards the ship and takes residence in the Crow's Nest.
  531. <DM> *You touch the generator, expecting it to suddenly charge, but instead, it sorta just... shocks you back before depowering.
  532. <Darte> (YEP_)
  533. * Darte shouts a bubbly curse at the generator, giving it a firm kick.
  534. <DM> *Newton's 3rd Law kicks in, returning your kick with an electrifying shock to your scaly toes.
  535. <DM> *Enjoy 3 Neutral Damage.
  536. * Darte bounces backwards from the generator, hissing and holding that foot as he snaps to one side, "You'll get your chance."
  537. <DM> *Sephiroth, you head on up top, and from up there, you notice, looking around with your Spirit Vision, there's something else skittering its way through the treetops. A good trio of them, spread too far out from each other to get them with a hit-all.
  538. <DM> *Suddenly, a Cross Laser is fired from one of them, directly at you, Sephiroth! Roll Wisdom to defend!
  539. <DM> Roll your Wisdom dice vs. targets' Wisdom dice
  540. <DM> Neutral Damage: 10
  541. <DM> EFFECT 1: If it hits, target gets Unfocused:
  542. <DM> Target cannot used ranged attacks.
  543. <DM> DURATION: One round
  544. <DM> EFFECT 2: Additionally, target gets Blinded:
  545. <DM> When target does any action that does not target themselves, they roll $1d3. If it is a 1, they automatically miss.
  546. * Darte leans over the railing. "We could use a few handy fins at the generators, or I might have to try some desperate measures!"
  547. <DM> $35d10
  548. <Navi> DM: You rolled 35 Dice with 10 Sides. Results: 8, 2, 8, 5, 4, 8, 10, 2, 3, 2, 5, 5, 4, 1, 2, 1, 2, 7, 6, 1, 4, 2, 8, 4, 6, 9, 10, 6, 5, 4, 5, 2, 6, 3 and 7. Total: 167. Successes: 20.

  551. <DM> *You nimly dodge the Cross Laser, letting it fly into the sky and strike DM in the- AHH MY EYES!
  552. <DM> *nimbly
  553. <Melizea> (y'know, did i ever inspect the generator)
  554. <Melizea> (i don't remember)
  555. <Melizea> (oh, i said i did...)
  556. <DM> (hmm, lemme look something up)
  557. <DM> *Melizea, you check out the generator yourself. Whatever it is, it seems oddly... familiar to you.
  558. <DM> *In fact, your Drive Blade is revving itself up in reaction to it.
  559. <DM> *Darte, some of the Zola from the side jump on up and try to help you jumpstart the thing.
  560. <Melizea> (which one, the Skybreak Driver or the Fiammetta Drive Blade?)
  561. <DM> (the... Fiamemetta Drive Blade)
  562. <DM> *It seems to be triggering Rev Up on its own, just by being near the orb.
  563. * Melizea looks around for a similar mechanism on the orb itself, before switching over to the drive blade.
  564. <DM> *Thanks to your knowledge of this thing... however the heck it is you know that, you find a panel towards the bottom.
  565. <DM> *The orb is about to shock you, when the Fiammetta Drive Blade ends up drawing some of the shock towards it. You find the panel, open it, and inside is a mechanism similar to one that powers your Drive Blade.
  566. * Melizea activates the mechanism.
  567. <DM> *The Zolas, meanwhile, try to use their shock fins, along with Darte, to try and jumpstart the thing.
  568. <DM> *Courtesies of their power boost, as you trigger the mechanism, the orb lights up!
  569. <Melizea> (yay minish/picori and geulian technology blend?)
  570. <DM> *You all feel the ship beneath you start to rise back up. The shield reasserts itself, right as another volley of Fireballs is about to strike!
  571. <DM> [Zola]: Shield! Aft side, now!
  572. <DM> *Well, thanks to the shock connection to the orb and the Zolas, you feel a telepathic connection with the other Zolas, Darte, and all of a sudden, you're given a crash course on how to use this thing... or at least, however they've been using it.
  573. * Melizea activates the shield/barrier thing.
  574. <DM> *The orb shoots lightning out into the waters around the ship, and a barrier of water forms around it!
  575. <DM> *The Fireballs end up striking the backside of the barrier, creating another smokescreen of steam, without the steam sales.
  576. * Darte assists in the turning effort of the shield as best he's able, jolting a bit as understanding locks into place.
  577. <DM> *Two more Cross Lasers come in from the sides. Darte, roll Wisdom +5, no Defense Dice involved!

  595. * Melizea wonders if there is some holographic map thing on the ship.
  596. <DM> *Using your new pseudo-knowledge, you just barely manage to rotate the shield around in time to block both Cross Lasers! The beams both disperse and deflect off the side of the shield, striking into the skies above- OH NOT AGAIN!
  597. <Melizea> (i have no idea if i have used up all my actions or something)
  598. <DM> (well, Deku Babas and Gohmas technically shoot from outside-of-the-battle, and there's nothing else close enough to be called a "battle" so....)

  603. <DM> (are you quoting Legend of Galactic Heroes to me?)
  604. <Darte> (INDEED)
  605. <DM> (ARE YOU ASKING FOR A LASER RAIN FEST FROM THE SKIES ABOVE?)
  606. <Melizea> (are there cannons on the ship i don't remember)
  607. <DM> (THOUSANDS AND THOUSANDS OF SHIP, SON)
  608. * Sephiroth ...
  609. <Melizea> (now i do't know what is going on)
  610. <DM> *There are Clawshot turrets, but the only ship cannon seems to be mounted into the front bow.
  611. <Melizea> (don't)
  612. <DM> (ignore the ships, we were referencing stuffs)
  613. <Darte> (We are on the boat, being fired upon by all sorts of monsters from the Forest)
  614. <DM> (yeah, what he said)
  615. <DM> *With the generator started, the other Zolas focus their minds on it. Despite there not being any oars, the ship begins to move, arcing lightning out to propel it forwards, and drawing in water from the river to continue to power it, replenishing the shield.
  616. * Melizea attempts to get the ship to start moving. "Darte! Do you still have any of those shooters on you?"
  617. <Melizea> (i was typing, but then master dm pulled a fast one on me)
  618. <Melizea> (... so... where are we headed cause i don't remember which direction is which)
  619. <DM> *Upstream is.... uhhh... Northeast!
  620. <Melizea> (we really should have a map of the area or something)
  621. <DM> *Yeah, boat's headed northeast. Starting to curve more northwards as it rounds towards the backside of Zora's Domain.
  622. <DM> (I'll see if I can chalk something up for next week. In theory, game dev shouldn't be as brutal for me next week, meaning I have actual time to run prep work.)
  623. <DM> *With the boat rounding a bend, the next wave of fireballs end up flying past off the starboard bow and into the treeline, exploding, but thanks to Saria's ritual, not igniting the forest.
  624. * Darte grimaces. "Think they're more aiming towards the all of us!"
  625. <DM> *However, more Gohmas are skittering from the treetops on the side. You think, maybe, a mounted weapon might have the range to reach one.
  626. <Melizea> "Anybody still have field weapons to mount on this ship?"
  627. * Sephiroth continues to keep watch for incoming foes.
  628. <DM> *The Zolas decide to tinker with one of the Clawshot Turrets, and within a very short amount of time, they've converted it into a turret that can launch one of their tridents.
  629. <DM> *Seems these fellas are real fast crafty workers!
  630. * Darte nods vaguely, though his focus is on the generator and the controls for the time being, swaying and moving with the rest of them in unison.
  631. <DM> *Sephiroth, one of the Gohmas ends up crawling out of the forest and onto the riverside. It's there with half a dozen Stalchildren. Now that they're no longer obscured by the forest and closer to you, you're in range to attack it! ... with something ranged, presumably.
  632. * Melizea investigates the cannon on the ship, if possible.
  633. <DM> *Checking out the ship cannon, you recognize some mechanisms that attach it to the Generator. While the cannon itself can't be moved (not without a serious overhaul), you think you might be able to engineer the Generator to work on other weapons.
  634. * Melizea does just that.
  635. <Melizea> "This may take a while."
  636. * Sephiroth attempts to form a Black Eclipse upon the Gohma.
  637. <Sephiroth> DESCRIPTION: With the dexterity and spirit of the Shiekah, absorb the light around the target until it reaches a mass of cynicism and punishment.
  638. <Sephiroth> Roll your Wisdom +20 dice vs. targets' Wisdom dice
  639. <Sephiroth> Damage: +0
  640. <Sephiroth> EFFECT: This attack can be rerolled once for free.
  641. <DM> *Darte, as you try to focus on the Generator, through your telepathic connection, you hear a sinister voice echoing just barely across the hissing linguistics of the other Zolas. They suddenly become complacent and take their hands off the Generator, depowering the shield.
  642. <Sephiroth> $50d10
  643. <Navi> Sephiroth: You rolled 50 Dice with 10 Sides. Results: 4, 8, 8, 6, 3, 6, 6, 4, 5, 4, 5, 2, 1, 4, 5, 7, 7, 1, 8, 3, 1, 9, 4, 3, 3, 4, 10, 3, 7, 1, 10, 10, 9, 7, 6, 1, 2, 1, 5, 7, 4, 9, 8, 5, 3, 3, 2, 10, 3 and 10. Total: 257. Successes: 31.
  644. <DM> *The Gohma seems to be preoccupied with something else, and it doesn't gain its usual skittering bonus.
  645. <DM> $25d10
  646. <Navi> DM: You rolled 25 Dice with 10 Sides. Results: 3, 4, 8, 6, 6, 1, 10, 6, 3, 6, 7, 2, 6, 5, 8, 1, 6, 10, 2, 10, 7, 5, 9, 5 and 10. Total: 146. Successes: 22.
  647. <DM> (annnd it lucksacks a bit anyways)
  648. * Darte grunts as the generator pulls on his field a bit harder, then fades back to inactivity.
  649. * Sephiroth tries the free reroll.
  650. <Sephiroth> $50d10
  651. <Navi> Sephiroth: You rolled 50 Dice with 10 Sides. Results: 2, 7, 1, 1, 10, 10, 3, 3, 8, 9, 9, 9, 8, 5, 1, 4, 1, 3, 9, 5, 1, 10, 10, 1, 1, 10, 7, 6, 8, 2, 5, 10, 8, 6, 10, 8, 6, 3, 10, 3, 2, 9, 2, 9, 3, 3, 3, 3, 5 and 1. Total: 273. Successes: 36.
  652. <DM> *Your Black Eclipse strikes the Gohma, covering it in absolute darkness momentarily! It ends up thrown off by your attack, trying to fling a pair of Stalchildren back your way, only to fling them into the air.
  653. <Sephiroth> 37h, 22m | Nayru's Love: 100h
  654. <DM> *The two Stalchildren scree for something to latch onto, grab ahold of each other in a moment of matrimonial joy, and then proceed to fall to their doom, headfirst into the ground, where they kindly dig themselves newlywed graves.
  655. <DM> *More Gohma are emerging from the treeline, trying to throw Stalchildren onto the ship! And with the barrier down...
  656. <DM> *You hear something crawling its way up the side of the boat...
  657. <Darte> (And there's the skies of love)
  658. <Darte> (closure)
  659. <DM> [Mido]: Hey, you kids hear that? It sounds like a- AHH!
  660. <DM> *You see a bony hand latching onto Mido's leg.
  661. <Melizea> (not sure if my thing is still being worked on or not)
  662. <DM> [Mido]: NOT THESE THINGS AGAIN!
  663. <DM> *Melizea, you think you've managed to hook up the generator to one of those new Trident Turrets, though it seems to be lacking power, courtesies of the Zola who are just... standing there, not actually doing anything about the orb.
  664. * Melizea sighs and then rushes over to re-figure out the mechanism behind the thing.
  665. <DM> *It's like they're suddenly possessed by something, and they're just... standing there, with eyes glazed over.
  666. <DM> *Mido and the Kokiri, meanwhile, try to fend off the Stalchildren.
  667. <DM> Kokiri = Heads, Stalchildren = Tails
  668. <DM> $1d2
  669. <Navi> DM: You flipped 1 coin. Result: Tails.
  670. <DM> *Some of the Stalchildren grab ahold of the Kokiri, trying to grab them off the ship!
  671. <Melizea> (also not sure how much magic regen i may or may not have gotten, given my passive skill)
  672. <DM> [Mido]: Ack, stop biting into my leg! Topper, use your nuts to flash em off!
  673. <DM> [Topper]: I AIN'T GOT ANY!
  674. <Sephiroth> > "Some of the stalchildren grab ahold of the Kokiri, trying to grab them---"
  675. * Darte blinks as he staggers back from the generator, hand clamped over his eyes. "What have you done? Leave 'em be! You'll /have your chance!" He's practically screaming, now.
  676. <Sephiroth> (So were they grabbed or attempted to grab?)
  677. <DM> (uhhh)
  678. <DM> *Kay, some Stalchildren grabbed the Kokiri, then attempted to grab them further. With more grabbing.
  679. <DM> .......
  680. <Melizea> (there's a lot going on here, apparently)
  681. <Melizea> (inb4 some stalchildren just grabbed each other instead)
  682. <DM> *There's another echo of whispers, and the Zolas suddenly break from their glazed state. They look around, see the Generator's shield is depowered, then try to activate it once more!
  683. * Darte exhales, swaying slightly, hand sliding down his face to blink at the Zolas. He shakes his head, not joining them this time.
  684. <DM> *Melizea, as you figure things out once more, the shield comes online, and you notice the Trident Turret becomes well... superpowered, thanks to your additional modifications.
  685. <DM> *There's some serious sparks coming off that thing.
  686. <DM> *You're not sure your Drive Blade alone could protect you from using it.
  687. <DM> [Mido]: Ack, someone come over here and help get these grabby guys off!
  688. <DM> *Your midget friend tries striking at them with his sword, but they're especially grabby, even grabbing his sword and knocking it to the side!
  689. * DM revs up another round of- I guess technically, the battle started when the Gohma got in range, soooooo
  690. * Sephiroth attempts to Void Fling Mido's bony companion off the ship.
  691. <Sephiroth> DESCRIPTION: Create a series of voids along a path and fling a target across them.
  692. <Sephiroth> Roll your Wisdom +15 dice vs. targets' Power dice
  693. <Sephiroth> Damage: 6
  694. <Sephiroth> EFFECT: If it hits, continue rolling against the target with -5 and no Magic cost.
  695. <Sephiroth> For each successful roll after the first, the damage caused by this attack is multilied by 1.5.
  696. <Sephiroth> Round the current number up before multiplying.
  697. <Sephiroth> Anything that boosts damage is added to the total damage dealt, not to the base damage.
  698. <Sephiroth> This continues until the roll fails.
  699. * DM checks the Stalchild's Wisdom stat.
  700. * DM checks its Defense Dice.
  701. <DM> Hoh boy.

  707. <DM> 36, so that hits 8 times...
  708. * Melizea takes a deep breath for a bit before activating the weaponry.

  713. <Melizea> (didn't i make a spreadsheet just for this)
  714. <DM> *Stalchild is lifted into the air, and flung through Portal 1, Portal 2, and whatever sequel comes of that, several times over, before getting launched out at Xtreme Velocities!
  715. <Melizea> (oh i did)
  716. <Melizea> (eh, whatever, they're dead anyway)
  717. <Darte> (Half Life 0.5)
  718. <DM> *The Stalchild blasts into another Stalchild, pulverizing it on impact, before striking the riverside with incredible explosive force! You find yourself the proud owner of yet another crater. Dirt flies high into the air, creating another smokescreen that blocks out half the Gohmas and their vision.
  719. <DM> *With your help, the Kokiri are able to finally stab the rest of the Stalchildren off the ship.
  720. <Melizea> (are we at zora domain or something i forgot)
  721. <DM> *However, there's still another pair of Gohmas, anchoring themselves in the treeline. Instead of firing up above though, they aim their lasers lower and at the hull!
  722. <DM> [Zola]: Shields! SHIELDS!
  723. <Melizea> (also did the turrets go off or nah)
  724. <DM> *The Zolas try to rotate the shield to block, but Melizea's modifications seem to have incidentally locked the shield into a rear facing position.
  725. <DM> (The turrets did not go off, it seems)
  726. <DM> *Looking at the turrets, it seems they still require someone to man, aim, and fire them. Though with those sparks flying off, you'll need some way to protect yourself.
  727. <DM> *The pair of Cross Lasers in, striking the side of the ship! You all feel the ship rumble beneath you, though thanks to its sturdy uhh... ahem, Deku Scrub plating, it's holding fine... for now.
  728. * Melizea dashes over to try to cover the area...?
  729. <Melizea> (oh, guess i was late)
  730. <DM> (you wanna dash off the ship?)
  731. <Melizea> (damn me and my slowness)
  732. <DM> *Mido tries to grab one of the new lightning turrets, but he's immediately shocked back.
  733. <Melizea> (eh, i probably could have hopped back up)
  734. <DM> [Mido]: Gah! Mel, what'd ya do to this thing? I can't even touch it!
  735. * Melizea goes over to one of the turrets to activate it.
  736. <DM> *Roll Wisdom to defend!

  740. <DM> (lessee, lightning's giving them a hefty dice bonus, so...
  741. * Darte shakes himself off. "Right, I can man one!" He runs over to one of the other lightning turrets and grabs hold.

  748. <DM> (your armor is above 8, right?)
  749. <Darte> (Correcto)
  750. <DM> *You get kindly shocked, but between your Zora resistance, and your armor deflecting it, you find you're able to man the turret! In fact, the lightning has straight up jolted you into place!
  751. <DM> *Congrats, you've magnetically attached yourself to the turret.
  752. <DM> *With your Spirit Vision, you can clearly make out the two Gohmas.
  753. * Darte sticks to the thing for the time being, taking aim at one of the two and firing. "Now this is quality engineering, Mel!!"
  754. <DM> *To fire a Lightning Trident Turret at once, roll... lessee, Trident is +8, Turret bonus is +10, Lightning bonus is +50....
  755. <DM> *Roll your Courage + 68
  756. <Melizea> (oops)
  757. <DM> *Darte, you can't help but notice that, thanks to the lightning connecting more of your being, a second lightning bolt is forming, one in the shape of... that one scimitar you have.
  758. <Melizea> (double oops)
  759. * Sephiroth pulls out a teaset up in the Crow's nest and begins sipping tea.
  760. <DM> *Sephiroth, you find there's a nice scope up there as well, so that you can check out the oncoming destructo force.
  761. * Darte 's eyes widen. "Don't. Don't do it. I'll have a much more interesting target for you, but not yet, damnit!"
  762. <Melizea> (how many "rounds" has it been again i forgot amidst the shenanigans)
  763. * Sephiroth does so, and peers through the scope.
  764. <Melizea> (that and forgot i still had magic regen)
  765. <DM> *Darte, should you choose to also launch the scimitar, you'll also gain another 20 dice bonus. Also, you see both Gohmas charging up Cross Lasers again, and you know that normally, even with the modifications, the turret can only strike one of them.
  766. <Melizea> (not sure if i used up all my actions or not)
  767. * Darte grits his teeth. "Fine. FINE! Give only what we need!"
  768. <DM> *You all hear the voice this time.
  769. <Darte> $128d10
  770. <Navi> Darte: You rolled 128 Dice with 10 Sides. Total: 642. Successes: 79.
  771. <DM> [Voice]: You've made a most excellent choice.
  772. <Darte> (... usin' a free reroll on that)
  773. <Darte> $128d10
  774. <Navi> Darte: You rolled 128 Dice with 10 Sides. Total: 700. Successes: 91.
  775. <DM> (hoh baby)
  776. * Melizea already knows it was a terrible choice.
  777. <DM> *Courtesies of the modifications, the lightning supercharges your Spirit Vision, allowing you to target not just the Gohmas, but specifically their eyes.
  778. <Melizea> (oh god he's eyegouging)
  779. <DM> *You get the aim just right, and right before the Gohmas unleash their Cross Lasers, you pull the trigger.
  780. <Sephiroth> (Dex lives once again!)

  783. <DM> *In a flash, two bolts of lightning darte outwards from the turret, boring holes straight through through the foliage and striking the Gohmas directly in the eyes, right as their Cross Lasers go off! The lasers end up exploding directly into their own eyes, and with Darte's memories reminding him of a certain Eyegouger, the spirit of Dex himself teleports from Kirran's inventory and materializes over here!
  784. <DM> *He briefly cameos, snipes a pair of juicy Gohma eyes, then flashes back into Kirran's inventory.
  785. <Darte> (Pocket Dex? Pokedex?)
  786. <DM> (Pocket Glitchzard. But yes, that too.)
  787. <Melizea> (darte takes 3 neutral damage)
  788. <DM> *Time unpauses and the lightning bolts, combining with the Cross Lasers, explode inwards through the Gohmas from the inside out.
  789. <DM> *In the distance, you see a pair of explosions go off. Sephiroth, on the other hand, with tea in hand and a scope in the other, got to enjoy the nitty gritty details of two Gohmas being incinerated from the inside out, leaving charcoal legs to melt all over the forest ground.
  790. * Sephiroth sips his tea.
  791. <DM> *Darte, before you're able to admire your new handiwork, it seems Mel miiiiiight have gone slightly overboard with the modifications. You try to let go of the turret, but suddennly it overloads inside of it, causing both you and the turret to spontaneously explode!
  792. <DM> *The rest of you down on the deck get covered in Darte guts. Except for the Silver-Haired teasipper. He gets to enjoy his tea.
  793. <Melizea> (wait i thought i was somewhere else?)
  794. <DM> [Mido]: ... figures. Darte just can't end a battle without dying now, can he...
  795. <DM> (ah right)
  796. <DM> *Okay, Darte guts get onto everyone else, save for you two.
  797. * Darte is once more fishguts. Uhm. Dinner's served?
  798. <Melizea> (wait didn't i get blown away from a turret or something?)
  799. <Melizea> (now i am even more confused than i was at the start of the session)
  800. <DM> *Melizea, you recover on the other side of the deck, to see Darte displaying his inner guts across your new Kokiri/Zola alliance.
  801. <Melizea> "... He did it again, didn't he?"
  802. <DM> *Mido gets out a match and toasts a bit of the giblets. He gives it a quick munch before spitting it out.
  803. <DM> [Mido]: Yep.
  804. <DM> [Mido]: Did it again.
  805. * Melizea sighs.
  806. <Melizea> "I'll just wire the barrier back in."
  807. <DM> *You get over to rewiring the barrier, and after a few modifications, the barrier begins to reform.
  808. <Melizea> "Foolish Fishcrumbs."
  809. <DM> *Darte, you finally begin to reform. But before you can finish recombobulating all the way, the barrier's reformation gets stuck at 99% and-
