  1. [20:08:51] <~Aori_Radidjiu> eh why not, back to corpse party ost
  2. [20:10:35] <~Aori_Radidjiu> Anyway, let's set up the scene.  Don has just awakened from nearly dying.  He feels awful, his lungs hurt and the air feels so good to breathe in.  Oh man.  Larissa is in better condition, albeit sore all over.  Don found a key in the locked room he was in, although he didn't get to use that yet.
  3. [20:10:40] <~Aori_Radidjiu> The key is labeled stairs.
  4. [20:14:06] * DJ was last seen sitting up right wherehe passed out, eyes closed, arms laid out on his thighs palm up, just breathing.
  5. [20:14:47] <Larissa> "So... was your soul worth it?"
  6. [20:16:04] <DJ> "Of course not."
  7. [20:16:54] <~Aori_Radidjiu> You're both in the hallway, near the door to the room Don was just in
  8. [20:22:52] <Larissa> "We probably should've paid more attention to Alex, or something."
  9. [20:23:59] <DJ> "So what do we do now?"
  10. [20:24:10] <Larissa> "Continue trying to escape."
  11. [20:24:25] <DJ> "...Why?"
  12. [20:24:41] <~Aori_Radidjiu> You hear a sigh a little bit over.  "I don't approve of what you two did...but if you're going to get me out of here, I won't argue."
  13. [20:24:56] <Larissa> "Well, that's one reason."
  14. [20:25:32] <Larissa> "Why would you even sell your soul over so cheaply, if you didn't want to get out?"
  15. [20:26:04] <DJ> "Why did you want me to so badly as to invade my mind?"
  16. [20:26:44] <~Aori_Radidjiu> (*munch munch munch*)
  17. [20:27:49] <Larissa> "'Cause I didn't want to be alone, and 'cause I owed you for trying to save my life."
  18. [20:27:59] <Larissa> "Though, to be honest, I didn't actually expect you to accept!"
  19. [20:28:58] <DJ> "What will you do now, if we escape?"
  20. [20:30:49] <Larissa> "Dunno yet. Probably the same thing I've been doing."
  21. [20:31:17] <Larissa> "If you're asking me if I'll turn into a monster, you're the scarier one here. You don't even know what you are!"
  22. [20:32:08] * Larissa decides to sit down. Waiting around probably isn't a great idea, but a little break couldn't hurt, could it?
  23. [20:33:09] <Larissa> (and then aori did what i did whenever my ad&d players spent too much time talking)
  24. [20:33:12] <Larissa> (and threw zombies at us)
  25. [20:33:39] <~Aori_Radidjiu> (Naw, I enjoy watching PCs interact.)
  26. [20:33:50] <DJ> "Well?"
  27. [20:33:54] <Giantree> (I call it 'giantree mode')
  28. [20:34:02] <Larissa> ((actually, i did that when they spent too much time not doing anything))
  29. [20:34:18] <Larissa> ((since it took them a while to ease into character and stuff. when they started actually talking, i was like holy shit))
  30. [20:34:59] <Larissa> "Huh?"
  31. [20:35:17] <DJ> "What am I, then?"
  32. [20:35:45] <Larissa> "A paradox."
  33. [20:36:18] <DJ> "And now i'm hearing things."
  34. [20:37:17] <Larissa> "Well, you are. Demons are like... magical ghosts, I guess?"
  35. [20:37:29] <Larissa> "So you're a living ghost."
  36. [20:39:17] <~Aori_Radidjiu> Voice pops up.  <If you want, I could explain what a Demon is.>
  37. [20:39:23] <~Aori_Radidjiu> Both of you hear this.
  38. [20:39:43] <Larissa> "Probably better than what I could do."
  39. [20:39:57] <Larissa> "Also, that confirms my theory that Furfur can see everything we say and do!"
  40. [20:40:24] <DJ> "For someone supposedly obsessed with magic and demons, "magical ghost" is a pretty pathetic explanation."
  41. [20:40:38] <~Aori_Radidjiu> <It is, Don.  Anyway.>
  42. [20:42:55] <~Aori_Radidjiu> <Demons, or at least the original ones, are the embodiment of what the collective subconscious of what humanity considers "evil".  That doesn't mean we are evil, it's more like it's our job to be evil.  Accepting a contract with one of us makes you a Demon too, although not quite the same yet.>
  43. [20:44:15] <~Aori_Radidjiu> <You two are more humans who have linked to the collective subconscious and are able to draw energy from it and manifest it, and in the process, it has caused your body to begin degrading and become less "human".  On the other hand, more traditional bodily needs, such as air and normal food, are less of a problem, and you're immune to poisons.>
  44. [20:45:33] <~Aori_Radidjiu> <The only thing you need to keep your body going now is DNA from other humans, to stabilize your bodies and make them more "human".  How you consume that and what kind of DNA you gather is up to you, but blood and bodily fluids are generally the most..."appetizing", I'd say.  You could also resort to consuming flesh and bone, if that's your thing.>
  45. [20:45:53] <Larissa> "In other words, we're dracula."
  46. [20:46:31] <Giantree> (Ok I just have to pop in and let you know I lost it)
  47. [20:46:55] * Larissa doesn't even say this in a questioning voice. It's more like, she's trying to summarize it for DJ.
  48. [20:47:40] <~Aori_Radidjiu> <If you prefer blood, yes.  You could also go for sweat, saliva, tears, and sexual fluids.  Although you're not strictly "vampires", per se, the sun does make you sluggish and speed up the rate your bodies deteriorate at.>
  49. [20:48:31] <~Aori_Radidjiu> <Any other questions?>
  50. [20:48:52] <Larissa> (tree what did you lose)
  51. [20:48:59] <Giantree> (all of it)
  52. [20:49:09] <~Aori_Radidjiu> (The ability to hold back his laughter, I assume~)
  53. [20:49:30] <Larissa> (t-tree you gave up your virginity that easily? T_T )
  54. [20:49:39] <Giantree> (yes, to mai waifu aori-chan)
  55. [20:49:45] <~Aori_Radidjiu> (So much for becoming a wizard.)
  56. [20:49:55] <Giantree> (our love is all the magic we need)
  57. [20:50:11] <DJ> "What do you want me to do, then?"
  58. [20:50:13] <~Aori_Radidjiu> (Friendship is Magic~)
  59. [20:50:20] <Larissa> (lewd, aori)
  60. [20:51:33] <~Aori_Radidjiu> <Well, immaterial demons like myself can't directly influence the human world, so that would be the job of you two.>
  61. [20:52:02] <Larissa> "Except, for whatever reason, we still have to get out on our own power."
  62. [20:53:32] <~Aori_Radidjiu> <These spaces function both as a test for those who wish to acquire demonic power, and to also break down humans until they're desperate enough to accept pacts with us.  Nothing personal, I didn't even make all of this place.>
  63. [20:54:47] <Larissa> "And, if you don't mind, I'm still going to try to rescue Alex from this place just to spite the fact."
  64. [20:55:20] <~Aori_Radidjiu> <Do as you like, I have no issue with it.>
  65. [20:57:40] <DJ> "So what do we get out of this?"
  66. [20:58:15] <~Aori_Radidjiu> <Like I said, the ability to harness energy from the collective subconscious and use it to influence reality.  Magic.>
  67. [20:59:45] <Larissa> "What kind of magic did you give him, anyway?"
  68. [21:00:55] <~Aori_Radidjiu> <I had to pick for him, unfortunately, but I managed to find a good niche for him.  Mental magic, manipulating the motivations of others.  Probably much more readily usable than your magic, but I'm sure you can find creative ways to make it work better.>
  69. [21:01:39] <Larissa> "It's been useful so far."
  70. [21:02:26] <~Aori_Radidjiu> <Good.>
  71. [21:03:38] <Larissa> "By the way, I killed the ghost."
  72. [21:03:46] <~Aori_Radidjiu> <I noticed.>
  73. [21:04:38] <~Aori_Radidjiu> <Their spirit will be returning to the aether, then, and, due to the location here, will reform into a demon.>
  74. [21:05:13] <Larissa> "They weren't already?"
  75. [21:05:33] <~Aori_Radidjiu> <They were in an inbetween state, you could say.>
  76. [21:06:39] <DJ> "So you want me to return to earth and take control of the people with this magic.  I see little choice.  Show me how to use this, and let's get on with it."
  77. [21:07:25] <~Aori_Radidjiu> <What you use them for is up to you, but so long as you make use of your power to change how the world is, I'm satisfied.  As for teaching you...well...>
  78. [21:08:25] <~Aori_Radidjiu> <Magic is inherently an intuitive thing, it's hard to teach, it's something you have to teach yourself.  It requires looking into yourself and finding the energy within, and focusing it to a purpose.  I'm sure you can figure it out, with enough effort.>
  79. [21:09:47] <Larissa> "Demon magic is, anyway."
  80. [21:10:00] <~Aori_Radidjiu> <...correct.>
  81. [21:10:07] * Larissa lol thaumaturgy
  82. [21:10:15] <~Aori_Radidjiu> <The magic you were studying is more knowledge-based.>
  83. [21:11:12] <Larissa> "The magic I'll continue to be studying." She corrects the demon.
  84. [21:12:14] <~Aori_Radidjiu> <You're not studying it at the moment, are you?  But I digress.  Move along, have fun, try not to die.  If you die, well, you'll be serving me more directly sooner, but don't worry, I'll treat you well.>
  85. [21:12:49] <DJ> "Then I'll focus on trying to make Larissa be quiet.  Let's move on.  I have stair keys."
  86. [21:15:58] * Larissa stands up. "Sure. Maybe there'll be something to eat."
  87. [21:16:26] <~Aori_Radidjiu> To the stairs?
  88. [21:17:13] <DJ> "I'm sure you still want to put Biff in your mouth."  To the stairs!
  89. [21:17:57] <~Aori_Radidjiu> The doors easily open with the key, revealing a staircase down and a gaping void where stairs would logically be upwards.  It's just.  Blackness on that wall and the air where it would be.  Huh.
  90. [21:18:19] <~Aori_Radidjiu> (lewd)
  91. [21:19:14] * Larissa shines flashlight at the black void.
  92. [21:19:26] <~Aori_Radidjiu> Nothing.
  93. [21:19:36] <~Aori_Radidjiu> It's like it eats the light you're shining on it.
  94. [21:21:12] <Larissa> "That looks dangerous."
  95. [21:21:53] * Larissa goes back to the fire room to grab one of her marbles. Preferably one of the ones near the door, so she doesn't have to walk into the fucked up room.
  96. [21:22:29] <~Aori_Radidjiu> Curiously, your bag has just as many marbles as you used before.
  97. [21:22:54] <Larissa> "What the fuck do I even have this for?"
  98. [21:23:02] * Larissa shrugs, and throws a marble into the void!
  99. [21:23:44] <~Aori_Radidjiu> It goes into the void soundlessly
  100. [21:23:52] <~Aori_Radidjiu> And never comes out.
  101. [21:25:06] <DJ> (Still not sure what Josh meant.  The stairs down are fine, and the stairs up are void?)
  102. [21:25:41] <~Aori_Radidjiu> (Correct.)
  103. [21:25:48] <Larissa> (oh.)
  104. [21:25:50] <Larissa> (i see.)
  105. [21:25:55] <Larissa> (i misread it then i think)
  106. [21:25:57] <Larissa> (so they disappear behind us?)
  107. [21:26:04] <~Aori_Radidjiu> (Oh no no no)
  108. [21:26:05] <Larissa> (thus making it impossible for larissa to have gone back?)
  109. [21:26:29] <DJ> (The stiars to a potential 4th floor are nonexistent, and the flight down is fine)
  110. [21:26:32] <~Aori_Radidjiu> (There are stairs to an upper floor, and stairs to a lower floor, but where the stairs to the upper floor are, is the void)
  111. [21:26:48] <Larissa> (ohh okay)
  112. [21:26:58] <Larissa> "Furfur, is this some demon bullshit?"
  113. [21:27:08] * Larissa wonders why she even asked.
  114. [21:27:15] <~Aori_Radidjiu> <Of course.>
  115. [21:27:24] <DJ> "Pretty obvious we aren't meant to go that way.  Let's just go down."
  116. [21:27:34] <Larissa> "Sure."
  117. [21:27:58] <DJ> "Even though the second floor won't be what the second floor is supposed to be, if it somehow happens to be, you'll know what's there."
  118. [21:28:12] <DJ> He starts going down.
  119. [21:28:57] <~Aori_Radidjiu> (1,1Larissa has only been on the first and fourth floors before, the others were inaccessible in the original building.)
  120. [21:29:32] <Kraken> (Demons don't even get free maps? That's some bullshit)
  121. [21:30:19] <Larissa> (i thought first and second)
  122. [21:30:26] <Larissa> (since didn't she go to the second floor to do the ritual ini the first place)
  123. [21:31:15] <~Aori_Radidjiu> (No, that was the fourth floor)
  124. [21:31:31] <~Aori_Radidjiu> (I tried to make that pretty clear in the prologue, but I guess it went over your head. ;_;)
  125. [21:33:37] <Larissa> (huh.)
  126. [21:34:11] <Larissa> (i just swear i asked at one point, and you said larissa knew the second story. and i swear she said so too as a result. and stuff. T_T )
  127. [21:34:55] <Larissa> (i could be misremembering literally all of that though)
  128. [21:35:02] <Larissa> (because this has been a really long one shot D: )
  129. [21:35:26] <DJ> (I thought it was 1 and 2 too)
  130. [21:35:43] <DJ> (Whatever.  on we go.)
  131. [21:36:01] <Larissa> "Maybe if we went back up, I would."
  132. [21:36:02] <Kraken> (Well her certainly didn't correct it last time it was mentioned on March 2)
  133. [21:36:27] <~Aori_Radidjiu> (Apologies.)
  134. [21:38:13] <~Aori_Radidjiu> The stairs go down, and the door for the second floor is...covered in spiders.  What.  First floor door is pretty normal looking, though.
  135. [21:39:16] <Larissa> "I know the first floor, though."
  136. [21:39:47] <DJ> "Not messing with that door unless you want to burn it.  It'd be easier finding a fire extinguisher and clearing them out that way."
  137. [21:39:59] <Kraken> (Bonus fun fact after confirming there's no indication Larissa knows dick about the second floor: Tree REALLY LIKES the word "second")
  138. [21:40:07] <Larissa> (lewd)
  139. [21:40:15] <Giantree> (really)
  140. [21:40:50] <Larissa> (also, asl ong as she never suggested she did)
  141. [21:40:52] <Larissa> (i am ok with it)
  142. [21:40:55] <Larissa> (i just thought she did)
  143. [21:41:17] <Kraken> (Don assumed she did at one point and it was never corrected but that's it)
  144. [21:42:07] <Larissa> "Biff, Steve, and Lorelei might be there."
  145. [21:42:15] <Larissa> "But we can go find a fire extinguisher first."
  146. [21:42:20] * DJ has understandably not shown much emotion other than annoyance and displeasure since waking up, and it shows in his actions and his voice.
  147. [21:42:59] <DJ> "They could be on the first floor, too.  And that one's less swarming with bullshit."
  148. [21:43:38] <Larissa> "They could be, if they're having any luck escaping. It's just reasonable to assume that they'd have ended up on the second floor."
  149. [21:43:43] * Larissa goes down to the first floor door~
  150. [21:43:47] * Larissa SEARCHES IT FOR TRAPS
  151. [21:43:57] <Larissa> 1d100 notice
  152. [21:43:57] <DiceMaid-9001> Larissa, notice: 38 [1d100=38]
  153. [21:44:02] <Larissa> 1d100 MAGE SIGHT
  154. [21:44:03] <DiceMaid-9001> Larissa, MAGE SIGHT: 56 [1d100=56]
  155. [21:44:12] <DJ> 1d100 notice
  156. [21:44:13] <DiceMaid-9001> DJ, notice: 47 [1d100=47]
  157. [21:44:40] <Larissa> (i probably failed mage sight outright, unless i have no wound penalties)
  158. [21:44:47] <Larissa> (but notice at least beat my mind stat)
  159. [21:44:48] <~Aori_Radidjiu> You don't see anything wrong with this door.
  160. [21:46:19] <DJ> (Also I'll be going with my default stats for today, since I still didn't do the EXP stuff I was gonna, and forgot how much I had again. )
  161. [21:46:35] <~Aori_Radidjiu> (15 iirc.)
  162. [21:46:39] <Larissa> (i dunno if we got any exps from last session D: )
  163. [21:46:53] <~Aori_Radidjiu> (...let's say 20 total.)
  164. [21:47:10] <Larissa> (also i forget if i started with 20 or 25 notice)
  165. [21:47:18] * DJ opens the door, but steps back as he does so.
  166. [21:47:27] <~Aori_Radidjiu> (I recall it being pretty low.)
  167. [21:47:52] <~Aori_Radidjiu> There's a small hallway in front of you, with three doors.  One directly ahead of you, at the end of this little hallway, one on the left wall, and one on the right.
  168. [21:48:27] <Larissa> (yeah should have been 20)
  169. [21:48:45] <DJ> 1d100 hunch cheating
  170. [21:48:46] <DiceMaid-9001> DJ, hunch cheating: 41 [1d100=41]
  171. [21:48:59] <~Aori_Radidjiu> SURE IS A HUNCH CHEAT
  172. [21:49:28] <DJ> "Pick a door."
  173. [21:49:56] <Larissa> Is it familiar?
  174. [21:51:23] <Larissa> (if we have 20 total, i have 3 unspent instead of 2 :D )
  175. [21:51:33] <Larissa> ((which means we only got 1 for last session :( ))
  176. [21:52:39] <Kraken> (Alternatively, you fucked up somewhere D:)
  177. [21:52:59] <DJ> (Coesn't matter right now)
  178. [21:53:00] <~Aori_Radidjiu> No, but given your spatial sense of the first floor and the building in general, you'd say...this is behind one of the double doors that was locked on the first floor, there were two of them in the building, right next to each other, ish, so you know where you'll get out!  Approximately.
  179. [21:53:24] <~Aori_Radidjiu> The door at the end of the hallway is a double door, in fact.
  180. [21:53:31] <~Aori_Radidjiu> Durrhurr I was thinking it but didn't say it
  181. [21:53:35] <~Aori_Radidjiu> Terrible GM etc etc
  182. [21:53:40] <Larissa> "The one straight ahead is the one we have to get through."
  183. [21:53:51] <Larissa> "There's probably traps and other bullshit protecting it, though."
  184. [21:54:05] * DJ hunch notices the double door
  185. [21:55:10] <~Aori_Radidjiu> On closer inspection, the double doors have a wire thing wrapped between the two hands on them, with a lock in the middle with 4 letter possibilities on it.  It has the word "DEAD" on it right now.
  186. [21:55:31] <Giantree> (nope nope nope nope nope nope nope nope nope nope nope nope)
  187. [21:55:34] <Larissa> "You know, I bet if you focused all of your magical power on it..."
  188. [21:55:39] <Larissa> "You could probably just break the door straight open."
  189. [21:55:58] <Larissa> "It might be trapped with explosives and kill us anyway, though."
  190. [21:56:12] <~Aori_Radidjiu> It seems that when the right word is put in on the combination, it pulls apart and you can unravel the wire and take it off.
  191. [21:56:25] <~Aori_Radidjiu> <While that's a wonderful idea, there's a problem with that.>
  192. [21:56:53] <~Aori_Radidjiu> <Don's magic, unlike yours, Larissa, can only affect sentient living things.>
  193. [21:57:21] <Larissa> <Why couldn't you have been a demon of Pride?>
  194. [21:58:18] <Larissa> <Oh. Did I think that out loud?>
  195. [21:58:27] <~Aori_Radidjiu> <The "what ifs" in the universe are infinite, girlie.  And yes, you did.>
  196. [21:59:01] <DJ> "Want to try a word before we check the rooms?"
  197. [21:59:35] <Larissa> "I could think of a few guesses, depending on how it works."
  198. [21:59:42] <Larissa> "It sounds risky though."
  199. [22:00:00] <DJ> "If you want to risk it exloding or something if you try a wrong word, feel free."
  200. [22:00:30] <Larissa> "I was about to offer that very same invitation to you."
  201. [22:00:38] <Larissa> "So... left or right?"
  202. [22:00:57] <Larissa> 1d100 notice: look for traps on the inferior side room doors
  203. [22:00:58] <DiceMaid-9001> Larissa, notice: look for traps on the inferior side room doors: 79 [1d100=79]
  204. [22:01:41] <~Aori_Radidjiu> (Oh, btw, if Roara actually kept better track of EXP than I did and it WAS 19)
  205. [22:01:44] <~Aori_Radidjiu> (Then I guess)
  206. [22:01:48] <~Aori_Radidjiu> (25 total.)
  207. [22:02:06] <Larissa> (i forget where i got the last 2 EXP from, just that it was sittin there)
  208. [22:02:10] <Larissa> (and that i never actually spent it)
  209. [22:02:20] <Larissa> (but yay 5 more exps)
  210. [22:03:01] <DJ> 1d100 hunch
  211. [22:03:01] <DiceMaid-9001> DJ, hunch: 73 [1d100=73]
  212. [22:03:13] * DJ tosses that one in the garbage.
  213. [22:03:41] <DJ> "Let's try this one."  He opens the left door and does a fresh notice roll!
  214. [22:03:44] <DJ> 1d100 notice
  215. [22:03:44] <DiceMaid-9001> DJ, notice: 94 [1d100=94]
  216. [22:03:46] <DJ> WOO
  217. [22:04:19] * Larissa stays a safe distance back ;D
  218. [22:04:37] <~Aori_Radidjiu> You see
  219. [22:05:18] <~Aori_Radidjiu> A bunch of skeletons "eating" at a banquet table.  The food they're "eating" is a bunch of bones, but they're moving utensils as if there's meat on them.
  220. [22:06:03] * Larissa peeks in once it becomes obvious no traps are going to kill her (immediately).
  221. [22:06:14] <~Aori_Radidjiu> One of them has soup instead, it's a greenish liquid with a dark coloring, and notably, while the rest of the skeletons are eating with silverware, the one with soup has a wooden spoon.
  222. [22:08:25] <~Aori_Radidjiu> They don't seem to notice you.
  223. [22:08:49] <~Aori_Radidjiu> The tablecloth is tattered, with rips and dust all over it.
  224. [22:08:59] <~Aori_Radidjiu> There's a few cabinets behind the skeletons.
  225. [22:09:30] <~Aori_Radidjiu> Most of them seem involved in conversation (however that works), almost all of them about the food, but the skeleton with the soup is quiet.
  226. [22:09:52] <Kraken> (Way to ruin the actual hunch mechanic with your lame pseudo hunches)
  227. [22:10:49] <DJ> (shoo)
  228. [22:11:01] <Larissa> <I ... guess... we did... find food...>
  229. [22:11:15] <~Aori_Radidjiu> <Thinking aloud, girlie.>
  230. [22:12:04] <Larissa> <I don't feel like talking. They might realize we exist if I do that.>
  231. [22:12:29] * DJ closes the door.
  232. [22:12:37] <~Aori_Radidjiu> A few of the skeletons have discarded, old bones laying around on the floor or their chairs or even on the table in front of them, some of which are broken and leaking bone marrow, which looks like the most appetizing thing.
  233. [22:13:59] <DJ> "We need to come up with a strategy before going in there."
  234. [22:14:10] <Larissa> "Or check the other door first."
  235. [22:15:06] <DJ> "But...  Bone marrow."
  236. [22:16:06] <Larissa> "Yes, but this entire building is full of puzzle bullshit."
  237. [22:16:20] <Larissa> "The other room probably has something we need to get into that room, so that we can get out of here."
  238. [22:16:41] <Larissa> "Also, if you're that excited about bone marrow, you're really not going to do well in human society after this."
  239. [22:17:13] <~Aori_Radidjiu> It certainly looks more tasty than the sweat that each of you have on your bodies.
  240. [22:17:44] <DJ> "I could use anything right about now.  I haven't eaten since before the dance."
  241. [22:18:10] <Larissa> "What if the skeletons decide they want to eat our bones next?"
  242. [22:18:35] <DJ> "We break them?  They don't have like, muscles, you know."
  243. [22:18:36] <Larissa> "I guess they actually are sentient, maybe, and you might be able to convince them to let us eat with them, but that's a big if."
  244. [22:19:04] <Larissa> "Yes. That's the thing. They don't have any muscles, and they're moving anyway. What makes you think we'll be able to stop them from moving?"
  245. [22:21:07] <DJ> "Then let me practice on you."
  246. [22:21:55] <Kraken> (So lewd)
  247. [22:22:28] <~Aori_Radidjiu> (^)
  248. [22:23:05] <~Aori_Radidjiu> If you're going to focus on making Larissa stop moving, I'm gonna' need an Inspiration roll~
  249. [22:23:38] <Larissa> "That'd almost be cute, but if you're like me, you only have so much magical energy."
  250. [22:24:41] <DJ> DJ points his hand toward Larissa and focuses intently on her.  "Sit down and stop talking, Larissa."
  251. [22:24:45] <DJ> 1d100 inspiration
  252. [22:24:45] <DiceMaid-9001> DJ, inspiration: 94 [1d100=94]
  253. [22:25:10] <~Aori_Radidjiu> There's no penalty for failure, besides it not happening, so you can try again.
  254. [22:25:19] <~Aori_Radidjiu> Alternatively
  255. [22:25:22] <~Aori_Radidjiu> You could flipflop
  256. [22:25:35] <~Aori_Radidjiu> Wait nevermind it's at 40%
  257. [22:25:39] <DJ> (If it's inspiration, that's only 40 still.)
  258. [22:25:52] <~Aori_Radidjiu> Try again.  once more, with feeling.
  259. [22:26:16] <Larissa> "What are you doing?"
  260. [22:26:27] <DJ> "I said shut up!"
  261. [22:26:30] <DJ> 1d100 inspiration
  262. [22:26:31] <DiceMaid-9001> DJ, inspiration: 80 [1d100=80]
  263. [22:26:35] <DJ> flip flip!
  264. [22:26:38] <DJ> rage!
  265. [22:26:54] <~Aori_Radidjiu> It's your obsession, so you don't need to rage~
  266. [22:27:22] <DJ> also *flop
  267. [22:27:56] <~Aori_Radidjiu> One of Larissa's amulets shatters
  268. [22:29:34] * Larissa stands there looking dazed.
  269. [22:29:40] <Larissa> The air sure is interesting!
  270. [22:29:59] <~Aori_Radidjiu> Don, you feel something inside of you drain a bit, although you still have more.
  271. [22:30:12] <~Aori_Radidjiu> Not much more, though.
  272. [22:30:51] <DJ> "Finally."
  273. [22:31:34] <~Aori_Radidjiu> There's briefly a blur in the air around Larissa, although it straightens out a bit afterward.
  274. [22:32:46] <~Aori_Radidjiu> Now what, Don?
  275. [22:33:20] * DJ checks the other door.
  276. [22:34:42] <Giantree> (INTERMISSION: I NOW BRING YOU DON.JPG)
  277. [22:34:44] <Giantree> ( )
  278. [22:34:49] <Giantree> (carry on)
  279. [22:36:45] <~Aori_Radidjiu> You pop it open, and see a room vacant of anything animate.  That's good.  It's also shiny.  Everything is made of some shining metal.
  280. [22:37:00] <~Aori_Radidjiu> There's a bed made of gold.  Even the sheets and the fabrics are gold sheets.
  281. [22:37:10] <~Aori_Radidjiu> The walls are coated with bronze.
  282. [22:37:30] <~Aori_Radidjiu> The dresser on the side is made of platinum.
  283. [22:37:51] <DJ> "Larissa, throw a marble in there."
  284. [22:38:07] <Larissa> It sure is interesting how the air moves in here, or maybe how interesting how the air doesn't move. It only seems to move when someone walks around. She wonders who that even is. Who is she? Does it matter? Does anything matter? What is the concept of "important?" anyway? Huh? A marble? She has those.
  285. [22:39:01] * Larissa gets out her bag of infinite marbles, and throws a marble in there.
  286. [22:39:37] <~Aori_Radidjiu> rollllllll
  287. [22:39:47] <~Aori_Radidjiu> It hits the wall
  288. [22:39:58] * Larissa watches the marble roll.
  289. [22:40:01] <~Aori_Radidjiu> And then turns into a bronze ball shortly after bouncing off.
  290. [22:40:22] * Larissa watches the shiny light reflect off of the marble's new form.
  291. [22:41:40] <~Aori_Radidjiu> It took about half a minute before the marble suddenly turned bronze.
  292. [22:42:10] <DJ> "Wonder if I should make Larissa test touching something with the gloves on, while she's vulnerable.  They're supposed to be protective, aren't they...?"
  293. [22:42:48] <DJ> "Upside...  If it works, we get what's in the drawer...  Downside...  If it fails I'm alone."
  294. [22:43:02] <~Aori_Radidjiu> Note that the marble was in the room, touching the bronze floor or wall the whole time.
  295. [22:43:11] <Larissa> Those sure are words.
  296. [22:43:45] <Larissa> Why can't she understand them? Oh, because they don't matter. How silly.
  297. [22:44:13] <DJ> "Larissa, sit down and don't go anywhere."
  298. [22:44:42] <Larissa> A break would be nice. Standing up takes so much effort.
  299. [22:44:56] * Larissa finds a place to sit down~
  300. [22:45:32] <Giantree> (1,1sit down inside the room)
  301. [22:46:15] <Kraken> (If she complies by getting herself killed due to environmental effects, is it don's kill or aori's?)
  302. [22:46:17] * Larissa could sit down inside the room, but why? Why sit down there? Why sit down here? She can sit down anywhere. Maybe she can even sit down nowhere. So she sits down here, because she just wants to sit down.
  303. [22:46:57] <Larissa> (depends on whether the effect is intentional or not)
  304. [22:47:09] <Giantree> (Probably the former, if it's an order)
  305. [22:47:12] <Larissa> (if she just walked into the room right now for no reason, and died before don could tell her to leave it or pull her out)
  306. [22:47:13] <Larissa> (tha'd be my kill :3 )
  307. [22:47:28] <Kraken> (Holy fucking lewd)
  308. [22:47:50] <Kraken> (Oh, you said "her," beer bottle in the way)
  309. [22:48:23] <Larissa> (it was still pretty lewd)
  310. [22:49:55] <DJ> "So...  The marble changed after being in there for a minute or so...  That should mean if I just get in and out quickly, I'd be alright...  But this is very risky."  Dj has his hand on his chin, looking into the room with a bit of concern.
  311. [22:53:57] <Larissa> Those are words too. There are a lot of words.
  312. [22:55:39] <DJ> "Well...  You only live twice."  He puts on the gloves, runs into the room, and pulls open the top drawer of the dresser, reaches in, grabs anything, and gets out.  Speed check y/n?
  313. [22:55:58] <~Aori_Radidjiu> SPEED CHECK
  314. [22:55:58] <Larissa> (inb4 mouse trap)
  315. [22:56:18] <~Aori_Radidjiu> (PFFFF no I'm not that sadistic.)
  316. [22:56:37] <DJ> 1d100 ohgod
  317. [22:56:38] <DiceMaid-9001> DJ, ohgod: 48 [1d100=48]
  318. [22:56:40] <Larissa> (and that's why your players have more of a kill count than you!)
  319. [22:56:44] <DJ> Made it~
  320. [22:56:52] <Kraken> (Then you're less sadistic than the sonic the hedgehog comic authors)
  321. [22:57:02] <Larissa> (jake)
  322. [22:57:09] <Larissa> (that's offensive to my religion)
  323. [22:57:16] <Larissa> (suggesting that sonic the hedgehog has comic authors)
  324. [22:57:33] <~Aori_Radidjiu> (Nono, he means the authors, of the sonic the hedgehog comics)
  325. [22:57:48] <Larissa> (or comics)
  326. [22:58:04] <~Aori_Radidjiu> (Sonic comics have been a thing for a long time.)
  327. [22:58:10] <~Aori_Radidjiu> (Since like 1993 or so.)
  328. [22:58:12] <Kraken> (Why would sonic own his own comics? He doesn't know they exist since they are in a separate reality from him)
  329. [22:58:33] <Larissa> (that's offensive to my religion too)
  330. [22:58:38] <Larissa> (suggesting that sonic the hedgehog is a person)
  331. [22:58:50] <DJ> (Nope, they're in the same universe.  Everything is.)
  332. [22:58:54] <~Aori_Radidjiu> Anyway, I let the low health penalty slide because magic protective gloves.
  333. [23:00:11] <~Aori_Radidjiu> Anyway, what you got was a little bronze box.
  334. [23:00:24] <~Aori_Radidjiu> And inside it, is a little piece of paper
  335. [23:00:31] <~Aori_Radidjiu> That has the word LIVE on it.
  336. [23:00:45] <Larissa> (not LIFE?)
  337. [23:00:53] <Larissa> (just makin sure)
  338. [23:01:08] <~Aori_Radidjiu> (not LIFE, it's LIVE)
  339. [23:01:21] <DJ> (You know that 1,1I was literally going to guess LIVE on the door, right?)
  340. [23:01:37] <~Aori_Radidjiu> (Your loss.)
  341. [23:01:52] <Larissa> (quick, try EVIL anyway)
  342. [23:02:12] <~Aori_Radidjiu> (You know that the skeleton room had magic bronze shoes as its reward that would make the metal room not a problem, right?)
  343. [23:02:22] <Larissa> (no)
  344. [23:02:31] <Larissa> (stop spoiling things we havent explored that room yet)
  345. [23:02:32] <Kraken> (Also, bone marrow)
  346. [23:02:42] <~Aori_Radidjiu> (^^^^^^^^^^^)
  347. [23:02:45] <Giantree> (aori you are so bad at this)
  348. [23:02:49] * Larissa stares at all the pretty air
  349. [23:02:52] <Kraken> (I was hoping they'd turn this into their equivalent of the frog/dragon rooms for us)
  350. [23:02:56] <~Aori_Radidjiu> Larissa snaps out now.
  351. [23:03:29] * Larissa sure thinks this air is pr- HOLY SHIT WHERE THE HELL AM I
  352. [23:03:33] * Larissa is on the floor.
  353. [23:04:09] <DJ> "Oh, you're up.  You'd passed out."
  354. [23:05:16] <Larissa> "I see."
  355. [23:05:43] <DJ> "Anyway, I went in the other room and got a clue for the door."
  356. [23:06:10] <Larissa> "Nothing useful for the skeletons?"
  357. [23:06:33] * Larissa stands up. What a peculiar way to pass out.
  358. [23:06:39] <DJ> "Nothing.  I mean, there might be something, but I'm not going back in there."
  359. [23:06:46] <~Aori_Radidjiu> (It was technically the equivalent, but Don had enough balls to risk instant death.  Not like i"m criticizing you guys for not fighting the dragon, that is technically much harder to deal with without some assistance than this room.  Clearly I thought this out poorly.)
  360. [23:07:42] <Larissa> (hey)
  361. [23:07:53] <Larissa> (larissa fought a ghost that she heard could just make her not exist with a single touch)
  362. [23:07:54] <Kraken> (Deliberately delayed death is very much the antithesis of instant death)
  363. [23:08:11] <Larissa> 1d100 speaking of ghosts... GHOST CHECK ooOOooo
  364. [23:08:11] <DiceMaid-9001> Larissa, speaking of ghosts... GHOST CHECK ooOOooo: 93 [1d100=93]
  365. [23:08:37] <Kraken> (What happens if you critically fail a ghost check?)
  366. [23:08:44] <Larissa> (you become a ghost)
  367. [23:08:49] <~Aori_Radidjiu> Larissa stumbles to check her amulets clumsily, and Don easily notices that she was trying to check her amulets without a check.
  368. [23:08:49] <DJ> And then Larissa gets grabbed by a ghost coming from the floor and gets sucked into a void of nonexistence
  369. [23:08:51] <Giantree> (then... you don't have a ghost of a chance)
  370. [23:08:51] <Kraken> (But then you found one and succeeded...)
  371. [23:09:46] <Larissa> (yes, but jake, we've already established that aori's crit fails for notice checks work)
  372. [23:09:50] <Larissa> (they just work in awful ways)
  373. [23:10:50] * DJ notices the checking and thinks for a moment. "When I first opened the door, there was some kinda flash, and then you went into a stupor and passed out sitting down. That's not anywhere near as bad as what was inside, though."
  374. [23:10:54] <Larissa> "Did you learn how to disarm the skeletons, at least?"
  375. [23:11:11] <Larissa> (oh shit i was scrolled up)
  376. [23:12:06] <Larissa> (i dont know how. i'm sick ok ;-; )
  377. [23:13:15] <Larissa> "I'm guessing that's a no."
  378. [23:13:45] <DJ> "I haven't gone back in there.  You were only out for a few minutes."
  379. [23:18:46] <DJ> "Anyway, I got a piece of paper iwth the word LIVE on it.  I'm guessing that's our answer for the door, but..."
  380. [23:19:28] <DJ> (Also if Larissa notices the marble in the room I'll probably be busted)
  381. [23:19:46] <Larissa> Or the marble bag in her hands.
  382. [23:20:28] <Larissa> "Then go ahead and try it out. I'm going to see if I can't do anything about the skeletons."
  383. [23:20:39] <Larissa> "What does the room do, anyway?"
  384. [23:20:51] <Larissa> "Are there wires everywhere, or something, again?"
  385. [23:20:56] <Larissa> 1d100 notice on the midas touch room
  386. [23:20:56] <DiceMaid-9001> Larissa, notice on the midas touch room: 33 [1d100=33]
  387. [23:21:01] <DJ> "Turns you into metal if you're in there too long."
  388. [23:21:06] <~Aori_Radidjiu> There's one of your marbles.
  389. [23:21:33] <~Aori_Radidjiu> A drawer in it is open,a nd you realize you ahve the marbles in your own hands, HYUP.
  390. [23:21:36] <Larissa> "It might be interesting to see if it works on bones."
  391. [23:21:50] <DJ> "But bone marrow."
  392. [23:26:33] <Larissa> "There might be something useful ahead."
  393. [23:26:46] <Larissa> "Or actual food."
  394. [23:27:11] <DJ> "But we don't do actual food any more, do we?"
  395. [23:27:14] <~Aori_Radidjiu> <Bone marrow is technically better for you than real food now.>
  396. [23:28:50] <Larissa> "Then, do you have a plan for dealing with skeletons?"
  397. [23:29:13] <Larissa> "I don't have enough energy left to blast all of them."
  398. [23:29:27] <DJ> "Throw a ridiculous amount of marbles, then when they chase after us they'll fall over and fall apart?"
  399. [23:30:12] <Larissa> "Sure. How about we open the next door first, so we don't get trapped upstairs, though."
  400. [23:30:53] <Larissa> "I opened the last one for you, so I think it's your turn."
  401. [23:32:01] <DJ> "Best case scenario is another fire extinguisher, which there should be plenty of in a place like this..."  He heads over to the door and looks at it again.  "Wanna try "LIVE"?  I risked my life once getting the paper, your turn now."
  402. [23:33:40] <Larissa> "At least... didn't you say I opened the last one?" ugh, head is starting to hurt.
  403. [23:35:15] * Larissa approaches the door
  404. [23:35:30] <Larissa> 1d100 NOTICE: search for traps, try to understand how the wire mechanism actually works to see if ti could be linked up to something dangerous
  405. [23:35:31] <DiceMaid-9001> Larissa, NOTICE: search for traps, try to understand how the wire mechanism actually works to see if ti could be linked up to something dangerous: 47 [1d100=47]
  406. [23:35:39] <Larissa> (mind beat. notice unbeat)
  407. [23:36:58] <~Aori_Radidjiu> It's a single wire, wrapped around the push handles that double doors tend to have, holding both of them in place.  You don't SEE anythign connected to this wire.
  408. [23:37:20] <DJ> "Nah, it's your turn.  You can't just trade off on doors, you have to trade off on attempts at potentially deadly things."
  409. [23:37:37] <Kraken> (But..but...bone marrow)
  410. [23:37:54] <~Aori_Radidjiu> (Cracky knows where it's at.)
  411. [23:38:11] <Kraken> (It's in the bones)
  412. [23:38:12] * Larissa looks to see how the letter mechanism works. Can they just switch the letters from DEAD to LIVE?
  413. [23:39:28] <~Aori_Radidjiu> Yeah, the letters rotate vertically, they're on little wheely coggy things that turn, and you can easily turn all of them to LIVE.  The part holding the wire together easily parts once you've done that.
  414. [23:41:03] * Larissa opens the door, fully expecting some death trap to kill her as a direct result.
  415. [23:41:16] <Kraken> (Instead, Steve and Lorelei making out)
  416. [23:41:28] <Larissa> (sounds like a death trap to me)
  417. [23:41:33] <~Aori_Radidjiu> You open the door and the first thing you see
  418. [23:41:34] <~Aori_Radidjiu> is
  419. [23:41:38] <~Aori_Radidjiu> bugs!
  420. [23:41:39] <~Aori_Radidjiu> TONS OF THEM
  421. [23:41:41] <~Aori_Radidjiu> AAAAAAA
  422. [23:41:48] <Kraken> (Okay, finish this hallway and then you get Steve and Lorelei making out)
  423. [23:41:49] <~Aori_Radidjiu> They're not all attacking you or anything
  424. [23:41:57] <~Aori_Radidjiu> They're just generally kind of chill, hanging around.
  425. [23:42:01] <~Aori_Radidjiu> squirming.
  426. [23:42:17] <Larissa> "I told you there were cockroaches."
  427. [23:42:18] <~Aori_Radidjiu> There's a pile of rubble to the left of you
  428. [23:42:30] <~Aori_Radidjiu> And ahead of you, you hear some noise, past a turn in the hall.
  429. [23:42:43] <~Aori_Radidjiu> It sounds like someone setting something down?  Like, boards or something.
  430. [23:42:57] <DJ> "Just treat them like men and we'll be through in minutes."
  431. [23:44:51] <Larissa> "Why don't you show me how it's done?"
  432. [23:45:09] <~Aori_Radidjiu> There are two doors ahead of you on the left side of the hall, and a double door that you remember goes to an entrance hallway, Larissa.  But the board sounds are continuing, and you're hearing an occasional grunt.
  433. [23:48:17] <Kraken> (Grunting? Now THAT can only be one thing)
  434. [23:49:20] * Larissa waits and listens to the grunting/wood sounds.
  435. [23:49:21] <DJ> (pigs)
  436. [23:49:28] <Larissa> 1d100 notice: attempt to identify wtf it is
  437. [23:49:29] <DiceMaid-9001> Larissa, notice: attempt to identify wtf it is: 63 [1d100=63]
  438. [23:49:43] <Larissa> (only beats my mind if i had NO WOUND PENALTIES :< )
  439. [23:49:48] <~Aori_Radidjiu> You're not sure.
  440. [23:50:34] <Kraken> (Grunting and wood? This isn't even a challenge...)
  441. [23:51:00] <~Aori_Radidjiu> You hear a door open, some voices, and then you hear steps, and creaking wood...
  442. [23:51:09] <~Aori_Radidjiu> And then Lorelei and Steve round the corner~
  443. [23:52:21] * Larissa blink
  444. [23:52:38] <Larissa> "Lorelei! You're alive!" time to be an actually protective older sister
  445. [23:52:44] <DJ> <Finally, dinner.>
  446. [23:52:52] <~Aori_Radidjiu> They're dressed differently than you remember them, both wearing formfitting bodysuits that look like they fit pretty well.  Steve in particular looks pretty good in that suit.
  447. [23:52:59] <Giantree> (Oh I thought Houry was gonna /session here, are we actually going?)
  448. [23:53:07] <~Aori_Radidjiu> (if you guys want.)
  449. [23:53:11] <Giantree> (YOU FUCKIN' BET I DO)
  450. [23:53:14] <~Aori_Radidjiu> (It's not like I have to do anything.)
  451. [23:53:15] * Giantree is now known as Lorelei
  452. [23:53:24] <Larissa> (either sit here and be bored and sick)
  453. [23:53:28] <Larissa> (or continue roleplaying)
  454. [23:53:33] * Kraken is now known as Steve
  455. [23:53:40] <~Aori_Radidjiu> (Cracky and Dave okay with that? :O)
  456. [23:54:00] <DJ> (NO, I DIDN'T SIGN UP FOR THIS)
  457. [23:54:04] * Lorelei finishes crossing the boards and suddenly her hair perks up like an anime character! "Ah-!"
  458. [23:54:08] <Steve> (The fuck else would I /nick?)
  459. [23:54:29] <~Aori_Radidjiu> (I didn't ask for this)
  460. [23:54:32] <~Aori_Radidjiu> (But Dave)
  461. [23:54:40] <DJ> (I'm fine with it)
  462. [23:54:41] <~Aori_Radidjiu> (imagine the bone marrow you can get out of this)
  463. [23:54:41] <Larissa> (you did sign)
  464. [23:54:52] * Steve jumps in front of Lorelei and strikes a fighting pose before realizing that they're not going to die and jinxing it probably. ""
  465. [23:55:02] <Lorelei> "N... No way.  Sis...?"
  466. [23:55:18] * Lorelei spins around, and... behind Steve in the process. That's cute.
  467. [23:55:18] <Larissa> are they like
  468. [23:55:21] <Larissa> just walking on bugs?
  469. [23:55:29] <~Aori_Radidjiu> Hyup.
  470. [23:55:31] <Larissa> ok
  471. [23:55:35] <Larissa> that means bugs rae probably safe
  472. [23:55:40] <~Aori_Radidjiu> The bugs don't really care, and generally do their best to skitter away.
  473. [23:55:41] <Larissa> 1,1or the most deadly trap of them all
  474. [23:55:42] <Steve> (Two demons and a psycho chances are not great)
  475. [23:55:43] <Lorelei> Sneakers covered in insectjuice.
  476. [23:55:48] * Larissa time to go hug her little sister.
  477. [23:56:22] * Lorelei looks at the hole they're at the other side of.... Hmmm....
  478. [23:56:40] <Lorelei> Naah, she nudges Steve to the side and lets Rissa cross.
  479. [23:56:47] <~Aori_Radidjiu> Nono
  480. [23:56:50] <~Aori_Radidjiu> The assumption I made here
  481. [23:56:55] <~Aori_Radidjiu> Was that you two already crossed
  482. [23:57:02] <DJ> "...Where's Biff?"
  483. [23:57:03] <Lorelei> You mean four?
  484. [23:57:08] <~Aori_Radidjiu> And they saw you after you crossed.
  485. [23:57:14] <~Aori_Radidjiu> two as in Steve and Lorelei.
  486. [23:57:20] <Steve> (We crossed hole from last time, met them on their side afterward)
  487. [23:57:26] <~Aori_Radidjiu> Since we ended last session on you two crossing the bridge.
  488. [23:57:29] <Lorelei> (Ohhhh, they're on THAT side)
  489. [23:57:41] <Lorelei> Okay nevermind the hole, sishug~
  490. [23:57:42] <Larissa> (yeah. aori didnt mention a hole yet)
  491. [23:57:44] <Steve> "He...uh...he didn't make it..." He stares at his sho- fucking bugs.
  492. [23:57:48] <Larissa> (so it must only have existed in your session D: )
  493. [23:58:21] * Lorelei clings tight. Almost uncomfortably tight, before pulling back and putting the act on. Sniffle. "Y-Yeah..."
  494. [23:58:25] <Larissa> "Are you okay?!" d'aw sisters hugging
  495. [23:58:28] <Steve> (We should probably perform The Scratch)
  496. [23:58:33] <Lorelei> "There was a trap, and he... and he..."
  497. [23:58:40] <DJ> "Where's the body?"
  499. [23:58:57] * Lorelei shakes her head.
  500. [23:59:00] <Steve> "Up a few floors, we had to leave him behind."
  501. [23:59:02] <Larissa> (and thats how i got to roleplay roara)
  502. Session Time: Sun Mar 24 00:00:02 2013
  503. [00:00:51] <DJ> "His spirit's still there, you know.  Bound to the room his body's in.  We can still bring him with us...  Sorta."  NOT MAKING A COVER STORY FOR WHEN THEY MIND CONTROL STEVE AND NOM SOME VANDERHUGE.
  504. [00:00:57] <Lorelei> "It was..." SNIFF.  "It was really scary.  B-But I think we're okay now."
  505. [00:01:38] * Lorelei perks up again. "Ah-! No, it's um, it's really dangerous back there... I-I barely got out."
  506. [00:01:44] <Steve> "Hm...maybe we could get back to it, but I'd rather make sure Lorelei, and the rest of you, can get out safely first"
  507. [00:01:58] * Lorelei clings to Steve by an arm, smiling a little.
  508. [00:02:13] <DJ> "We've already brought one perso who died in here with us."
  509. [00:02:24] <DJ> +n
  510. [00:03:04] <Lorelei> "Huh?"  Headtilt.  "But you both look alive..."
  511. [00:03:57] <Larissa> "A ghost."
  512. [00:04:18] <Lorelei> "A ghost."
  513. [00:04:24] * Lorelei narrows her eyes a bit.
  514. [00:04:25] <~Aori_Radidjiu> Alex pops up.  "Hi."  She frowns a little.
  515. [00:04:30] <DJ> <I wonder if rotting bodies are still alright...>
  516. [00:04:41] <Lorelei> "... A ghost."
  517. [00:04:53] <~Aori_Radidjiu> She's a translucent bluish person, her legs aren't showing, and she's behind Lorelei and Don.
  518. [00:05:04] <Lorelei> You mean Larissa and Don?
  519. [00:05:04] <~Aori_Radidjiu> Also, there's a bright bluish sort of flame where her heart would be.
  520. [00:05:06] <DJ> (*larissa)
  521. [00:05:08] <~Aori_Radidjiu> er
  522. [00:05:09] <~Aori_Radidjiu> Larissa
  523. [00:05:10] <~Aori_Radidjiu> yeah
  524. [00:05:12] <~Aori_Radidjiu> aaaagh.
  525. [00:05:30] <DJ> (Josh is gonna be so screwed with these joint sessions)
  526. [00:05:30] * Lorelei stares at her. "Um. Hi."
  527. [00:05:36] <Steve> " ghost."
  528. [00:06:00] <DJ> "Yeah.  We're bringing her out of here with us so we can put her to rest in a better place."
  529. [00:06:06] <Steve> (And then Steve's latent Buddha-powers went active and he was able to exorcise Alex, putting her spirit to rest, and smote the demons most Buddhaciously)
  530. [00:06:15] <Larissa> "This place is a demon factory."
  531. [00:06:38] <Larissa> (unfortunately)
  532. [00:06:41] <Larissa> (Steve was so fucking bhudda)
  533. [00:06:46] <Larissa> (buddha)
  534. [00:06:49] <Larissa> (that he no longer had any reason to move)
  535. [00:06:54] <Larissa> (and his only company for the rest of his life were the bugs)
  536. [00:07:00] * Lorelei listens and forms a very small grin. Trying to hide it but to not-much avail. "Really, Sis? And a real ghost... next you're gonna say there's real magic."
  537. [00:07:06] <Steve> (Not if we go Eastern Buddhism level of Buddha, specifically Japan)
  538. [00:07:17] <~Aori_Radidjiu> (And then he ascended, saying "I must go now, my people need me." and just floated off into space.)
  539. [00:07:29] <~Aori_Radidjiu> (And became a giant space buddha of JUSTICE)
  540. [00:07:31] <Steve> "Well...I'm pretty sure magic was involved in...all of this!" He kind of waves his hand around the area.
  541. [00:07:34] <Larissa> (i swear there was a myth of a buddha who just sat there)
  542. [00:07:39] <Larissa> (but maybe that was in a tv show)
  543. [00:07:43] <Larissa> (and not an acual myth)
  544. [00:07:55] <Steve> (Sitting Buddhas are a thing)
  545. [00:08:36] <Lorelei> Tightercling.  "Or it's a dream."
  546. [00:09:36] <Steve> "What, like prom was so boring we, I'm not going to try to apply logic to dreams."
  547. [00:10:48] <Lorelei> "Um..." Her hair twitches.  Just like in anime!  =^-^=  "I'm g-glad you're okay, Sis, but... should we really just be standing here?"
  548. [00:11:32] * Larissa pats Lorelei on the head, glancing over to Steve in thought.
  549. [00:11:50] <Larissa> 1d100 mage sight steve
  550. [00:11:51] <DiceMaid-9001> Larissa, mage sight steve: 100 [1d100=100]
  551. [00:11:55] <Larissa> (welp)
  552. [00:11:57] * DJ sighs. <How long do I have to pretend to not be a demon? The thought of these living people right here is making me restless.>>
  553. [00:11:57] <Lorelei> (excellent work)
  554. [00:12:03] <Larissa> (i am good at this)
  555. [00:12:10] <Steve> (That's amazing)
  556. [00:12:17] <~Aori_Radidjiu> (wow.)
  557. [00:12:19] <~Aori_Radidjiu> (Just.)
  558. [00:12:20] <~Aori_Radidjiu> (wow.)
  559. [00:12:49] <Larissa> (at least i crit failed the unimportant check)
  560. [00:12:54] <Larissa> (the important one was next)
  561. [00:13:04] <Larissa> (but i might not get to it depending on aori's SINISTER PLANS)
  562. [00:13:08] <~Aori_Radidjiu> You see another lovely vision of Furfur's room.  He shakes his head a bit.  "You're really good at looking at the wrong things, girlie."
  563. [00:13:16] <~Aori_Radidjiu> Now do one for Lorelei.
  564. [00:13:18] <Steve> (Is this the part where I become the Buddha and passively annihilate Larissa, cleansing her soul?)
  565. [00:13:24] <Larissa> (why the fuck would i not)
  566. [00:13:44] * Larissa tries to clear her head to get back to reality, and looks down to her sister.
  567. [00:13:47] <Larissa> 1d100 MAGE SIGHT
  568. [00:13:48] <DiceMaid-9001> Larissa, MAGE SIGHT: 30 [1d100=30]
  569. [00:14:04] <Larissa> (holy shit i suceeded a mage sight check)
  570. [00:14:10] <Steve> (Oh, did demonhood heal any potential wounds they had received previously? they look fucking ragged as we were before futuresuits?)
  571. [00:14:13] <~Aori_Radidjiu> Holy shit.
  572. [00:14:15] * Lorelei looks back up, with a half-scared half-happy smile.
  573. [00:14:17] <Larissa> (i honestly dont remember if this actually happened befor)
  574. [00:14:21] <Lorelei> (it hasn't)
  575. [00:14:24] <~Aori_Radidjiu> They look damn ragged.
  576. [00:14:54] <~Aori_Radidjiu> Their eyes a little bloodshot, and their skin paler than usual
  577. [00:14:54] <Larissa> (i think we have like 6 hp between us)
  578. [00:14:55] <~Aori_Radidjiu> Anyway
  579. [00:14:55] <~Aori_Radidjiu> Lorelei
  580. [00:14:56] <Larissa> (if not less)
  581. [00:14:57] <~Aori_Radidjiu> You see
  582. [00:14:58] <~Aori_Radidjiu> That
  583. [00:15:00] <~Aori_Radidjiu> er
  584. [00:15:01] <~Aori_Radidjiu> Larissa
  585. [00:15:05] <Lorelei> Did it backwards ag- ther eyou go
  586. [00:15:06] <~Aori_Radidjiu> Not lorelei
  587. [00:15:08] <~Aori_Radidjiu> GODDAMMIT
  588. [00:15:13] <Lorelei> You are adorable.
  589. [00:15:13] <Larissa> (josh is good at this too)
  590. [00:15:17] <~Aori_Radidjiu> anyway
  591. [00:15:18] <~Aori_Radidjiu> Larissa
  592. [00:15:21] <~Aori_Radidjiu> You see
  593. [00:15:27] <~Aori_Radidjiu> Larissa lighting up like a torch
  594. [00:15:30] <~Aori_Radidjiu> You see mana
  595. [00:15:32] <~Aori_Radidjiu> You see
  596. [00:15:40] <~Aori_Radidjiu> Furfur's touch on her, kind of like on yourself
  597. [00:15:42] <Lorelei> YOU DID IT BACKWARD AGAIN
  598. [00:15:47] <~Aori_Radidjiu> ...
  599. [00:15:50] <~Aori_Radidjiu> LORELEI
  600. [00:15:56] <Lorelei> Just do it all in one sentence.
  601. [00:15:57] <~Aori_Radidjiu> lit up
  602. [00:15:57] <Larissa> (just do oneesan and imouto)
  603. [00:16:13] <Lorelei> (I would also accept oneesan/imouto)
  604. [00:16:26] <Steve> (Do it with an Irish accent)
  605. [00:16:30] <~Aori_Radidjiu> imouto is probably a demon now just like yourself.
  606. [00:17:08] * Lorelei looks up quizzically. 1,1And probably hungrily.
  607. [00:17:13] <~Aori_Radidjiu> <Hnnn...heehee.>  All the demonfolk here hear Furfur chuckle a bit.
  608. [00:17:52] <Larissa> "Is Steve one too? I can't see him. You're too bright."
  609. [00:18:20] <Steve> (Did she just say that aloud?)
  610. [00:18:27] * Lorelei headtilts. "One what?"
  611. [00:19:07] <Larissa> "That's a no."
  612. [00:19:29] <Steve> " that would really love to finish escaping this place? Because I am that."
  613. [00:19:41] <Lorelei> "... Sis, did you get hit on the head?"
  614. [00:19:53] * Larissa thinks about that.
  615. [00:20:00] <Steve> 1d100 Gogo Bullshit Protag Intuition (Aura Sight)
  616. [00:20:00] <DiceMaid-9001> Steve, Gogo Bullshit Protag Intuition (Aura Sight): 51 [1d100=51]
  617. [00:20:16] <Larissa> "No, but DJ did."
  618. [00:20:22] <Steve> (Fails skill, succeeds in stat)
  619. [00:20:32] <~Aori_Radidjiu> Something
  620. [00:20:32] <~Aori_Radidjiu> seemjs
  621. [00:20:34] <~Aori_Radidjiu> different
  622. [00:20:37] <~Aori_Radidjiu> And off
  623. [00:20:41] <Steve> "You two okay?"
  624. [00:20:46] <~Aori_Radidjiu> About the auras of the other three.
  625. [00:20:54] <~Aori_Radidjiu> Yes, including Lorelei.
  626. [00:20:55] * Lorelei clings to Steve tighter in the 'oh no help me' kind of way.
  627. [00:21:17] <Steve> Of course he's too busy looking at the newcomers to ever notice adorable, sweet, and innocent Lorelei could have a funky aura.
  628. [00:21:29] <Larissa> "Don't be scared. We're almost out."
  629. [00:22:03] <Steve> "I ask because you two look just...well...awful."
  630. [00:22:30] <Larissa> "Yeah. Death traps do that."
  631. [00:22:45] <Lorelei> 1d100 conceal a smile
  632. [00:22:46] <DiceMaid-9001> Lorelei, conceal a smile: 37 [1d100=37]
  633. [00:22:52] * Lorelei moves behind Steve.
  634. [00:23:20] <Lorelei> "Out... H-How do we get out?"
  635. [00:23:26] <~Aori_Radidjiu> That is concealed~
  636. [00:23:41] * Larissa looks around, trying to get her bearings. D:
  637. [00:24:05] <Steve> His gaze lingers on the two off-putting motherfuckers a bit longer before he also attempts to figure out how to proceed.
  638. [00:24:18] <Lorelei> Doors, right?
  639. [00:25:09] <DJ> "..."  He just stares at Steve's neck, but he would probably not notice the distinction between that and eye contact.
  640. [00:25:30] <~Aori_Radidjiu> 1,1Steve looks tastier than Lorelei.
  641. [00:25:36] <Steve> 1d100 I don't know, the eyes and the neck are pretty far apart, but we'll see.
  642. [00:25:37] <DiceMaid-9001> Steve, I don't know, the eyes and the neck are pretty far apart, but we'll see.: 71 [1d100=71]
  643. [00:25:45] * Steve remains ignorant.
  644. [00:25:45] <Lorelei> 1d100 can I try too?
  645. [00:25:46] <DiceMaid-9001> Lorelei, can I try too?: 12 [1d100=12]
  646. [00:25:53] <~Aori_Radidjiu> You can succeed.
  647. [00:25:56] <Larissa> 1d100 can i try too?
  648. [00:25:57] <DiceMaid-9001> Larissa, can i try too?: 20 [1d100=20]
  649. [00:26:04] <~Aori_Radidjiu> You can also succeed!
  650. [00:26:26] <Lorelei> Oh yeah.  Lore gives Don a bit of a glare and immediately starts pulling Steve by the arm to one of the doors near them.
  651. [00:26:38] <Lorelei> "Let's do SOMETHING."
  652. [00:26:40] <Larissa> "What the heck are you wearing, anyway?" she finally asks.
  653. [00:26:52] <Lorelei> !
  654. [00:27:04] <Lorelei> "Uhh.... w-well, we just found these so..."
  655. [00:27:18] <Steve> "They appear to have been intended to get past the bugs."
  656. [00:27:27] <Larissa> "To get past the bugs?"
  657. [00:27:29] * Larissa glances down at bugs.
  658. [00:27:37] <Lorelei> Stomp.
  659. [00:27:43] <~Aori_Radidjiu> The bugs DO seem to dislike Lorelei and Steve more than you two
  660. [00:27:48] <~Aori_Radidjiu> But they're generally complacent.
  661. [00:27:49] <Steve> "Not to mention they were considerably less ragged than what we WERE wearing."
  662. [00:28:03] <Lorelei> "Uh-huh.  They sting, and bite...."
  663. [00:28:17] <Larissa> "Huh. Are you sure? They look pretty peaceful to me."
  664. [00:28:31] <Lorelei> "Maybe here."
  665. [00:28:34] * Lorelei shivers a little.
  666. [00:29:35] <Steve> But seriously, what are the remaining paths that are not where either party just came from?
  667. [00:29:53] * Lorelei knows what door she's trying to open.
  668. [00:29:58] <~Aori_Radidjiu> There are a pair of double doors nearby that don't seem to be blocked
  669. [00:30:11] * Larissa points at the double doors. "That's probably the way out."
  670. [00:30:29] <~Aori_Radidjiu> There's two doors on the side, and there's also a pair of familiar double doors that go to the stairs you guys used when you first came here.
  671. [00:30:57] <Steve> "Out of here at least, if I know my hero cycle, we're in for one final confrontation before we get to go."
  672. [00:31:18] <Lorelei> "Outside...?  We found the way outside earlier, but we didn't check it yet."
  673. [00:31:27] <Larissa> "Mhm. We've just done that already."
  674. [00:31:28] <DJ> "Yeah, probably one last important thing to take care of."
  675. [00:32:23] <Larissa> "Outside?"
  676. [00:32:28] <Steve> "No, this is the hero's return. Any areas you guys never tried that may seem viable on your side?"
  677. [00:32:43] <Lorelei> "Like... out of the building."
  678. [00:32:57] <Larissa> "The stairs to the fourth floor were blocked by a strange darkness."
  679. [00:33:06] <Larissa> "And the door to the second floor was blocked by spiders."
  680. [00:33:06] <DJ> "Second floor.  no idea what's on it or how to get into it easily though."
  681. [00:33:08] * Lorelei exclamationpoints at that.
  682. [00:33:25] <Lorelei> "Oh... really.  That's weird."
  683. [00:33:40] <~Aori_Radidjiu> There's another staircase, though.
  684. [00:33:48] <Lorelei> Yeah, that's where I've been trying to go this whole time.
  685. [00:33:51] <~Aori_Radidjiu> The one I just mentioned, the one you guys used in the prologue, which is nearby.
  686. [00:33:58] <~Aori_Radidjiu> I'm just
  687. [00:34:07] <~Aori_Radidjiu> making sure that what I said didn't go over anyone's heads ;_;
  688. [00:34:13] <Steve> "Wait, the spiders stopped you, but these bugs don't seem to care about you?"
  689. [00:34:18] <Steve> (Doodle us a map!)
  690. [00:34:20] <Larissa> "We didn't bother trying."
  691. [00:34:36] * Lorelei drags Steve to THAT staircase while everyone's dickin' around then. Since it isn't locked or anything.
  692. [00:34:52] * Larissa follows along. talking and walking is totally possible to do.
  693. [00:34:54] <Steve> "Oh, I guess we're going this way...."
  694. [00:35:01] <Larissa> "That is the way out."
  695. [00:35:13] <Lorelei> "?"
  696. [00:35:17] <Larissa> oh
  697. [00:35:17] <Larissa> unless
  698. [00:35:18] <Larissa> Lorelei meant
  699. [00:35:21] <Larissa> their staircase
  700. [00:35:26] <Larissa> then Larissa doesnt say that
  701. [00:35:35] <Lorelei> Not the staircase Darissa came from.
  702. [00:35:35] <Larissa> god damn it which is THAT staircase
  703. [00:35:37] <Larissa> ok
  704. [00:35:39] <Larissa> then she says that
  705. [00:35:46] <~Aori_Radidjiu> I'm going to make some modifications to the map I have
  706. [00:35:49] <Lorelei> Okay then her sister question marks
  707. [00:36:00] <Lorelei> Which isn't really a word, it's just an interjection.
  708. [00:36:03] <Larissa> "Well... it probably is."
  709. [00:36:05] <Lorelei> Like, "Mm?" or something.
  710. [00:36:13] <Larissa> "It's the way we came in, I think."
  711. [00:36:24] <Steve> ]';[p
  712. [00:36:34] <Steve> (My cat made a new face)
  713. [00:36:39] <Larissa> (its beautiful)
  714. [00:36:44] <Lorelei> "Okay.   Let's go check."
  715. [00:37:03] <Lorelei> (is p. good)
  716. [00:37:49] <DJ> (That's how cats  spell meow)
  717. [00:38:51] <Steve> (My bad, I thought it was a mustached cowboy lifting his hat while winking)
  718. [00:39:34] * DJ just follows along, really getting annoyed by Steve's presence altogether.
  719. [00:40:13] <~Aori_Radidjiu>
  720. [00:40:49] <~Aori_Radidjiu> top door thing is to outside.
  721. [00:41:11] <Lorelei> (yeah we're going to SE stairs)
  722. [00:41:25] <~Aori_Radidjiu> And it's frog prince because that's what I was going to do before I decided I wanted it to be a KING
  723. [00:41:46] <~Aori_Radidjiu> And I was just goign to have it that Lorelei had to kiss the frog prince and he'd agree to be fed to the dragon.
  724. [00:42:04] <Lorelei> That is adorable.
  725. [00:42:25] <~Aori_Radidjiu> It probably would've been better for pacing, too!
  726. [00:42:26] <~Aori_Radidjiu> Anyway
  727. [00:42:27] <~Aori_Radidjiu> Uh.
  728. [00:42:32] <~Aori_Radidjiu> Session end for now because LATE.
  729. [00:42:34] <Steve> Adorably inhygienic.
  730. [00:42:40] <Lorelei> that was the most boring session end ever
  731. [00:42:41] <Steve> What, this isn't late, you want late?
  732. [00:42:54] <Lorelei> Just 30 minutes ago you were saying "I'm not doing anything"
  733. [00:42:56] <~Aori_Radidjiu> As you ENTER THE SE STAIRS YOU WALK INTO SESSION END
  734. [00:42:57] <~Aori_Radidjiu> THERE
  735. [00:43:01] <Lorelei> still p. lame
