  3. Kaorin Sakura has connected.
  4. Chloe has connected.
  5. Kaorin Sakura:  So, I've been reminded that you guys rested overnight in the cave.
  6. Kaorin Sakura:  Okay so:
  7. Kaorin Sakura:  Resting overnight would restore 50% of your max HP. Heal 1 injury. Cure all persistent conditions, Drained AP and Daily frequency Moves/Features.
  8. DNA:    In which case, I should apply those effects now, correct?
  9. Kaorin Sakura:  If you already didn't last week, yes
  10. DNA:    I did not, last week.
  11. * Natasha is healed of 2 injuries due to having a bandage at the time!
  12.         Chloe Blanchett:        Chloe Blanchett loses 0 hit points.
  13. Avara:  which map should we be settling on? if it matters at all?
  14.         Natasha:        Natasha is healed for 10 HP!
  15. Kaorin Sakura:  Doesn't really.
  16.         Saturn Rosewell:        Saturn Rosewell is healed for 6 HP!
  17.         Saturn Rosewell:        Saturn Rosewell recovered 3 AP!
  18.         Rochette:       Rochette loses 0 hit points.

  22. DNA:    All up to date. Using box sprites at present. Will C/P elsewhere when necessary.
  23. Kaorin Sakura:  : e
  24. Kaorin Sakura:  Meant a 3
  25. Kaorin Sakura:  Okay so:
  26. Kaorin Sakura:  Just to go over a few things and refresh memories.
  27.         Mario:  Mario is healed and gains 21 hit points.
  28. DNA:    lol mario
  29. * DNA had a Foongus like that in BW also!
  30. Kaorin Sakura:  The party ventured down into the abyss, caused an explosion, rolled over a coven of enemies, freed an imprisoned songstress, reunited her with her magical immortal sibling and then everyone slept because WHAT A DAY.
  31. Kaorin Sakura:  Also there were these fungus algae things. But I skipped over that.
  32.         Chloe Blanchett:        Chloe had asked to learn about their magic while they rested. A key reason why she wanted to rest where the sisters were.
  33. * Saturn Rosewell was moderately frustrated. She wnated to try and reach Cerulean by nightfall, but needs must. Now she just wanted to finish this job up and then decide later.
  34.         Rochette:       Rochette was still hurting pretty bad, the adrenaline rush and focus needed for the past day's activities absent and leaving her to suffer the pain of her wounds. At least they were starting to fade. She looked over to the others, trying to get a figure for how easily she'd end up reversing her condition again if she went down. She'd slept most of the break off, but she was interested in the magic as well.
  35. Kaorin Sakura:  Also, if you have multiple injuries, you have the choice of which injuries heal first.
  36. DNA:    I assumed as much!
  37. Kaorin Sakura:  So, who's magic were you interested in, Chloe?
  38. Kaorin Sakura:  The sisters will note that their magic are not the same nor originate from the same source.
  39.         Chloe Blanchett:        Originally she was interested in the magic of Nylora, but the beauty of the music captured her interest.
  40. DNA:    Note, is this taking place the next morning?
  41. Kaorin Sakura:  It can
  42.         Saturn Rosewell:        Retroactively using Medic to heal up Wineberry before the rest (2 AP's worth):
  43.         Saturn Rosewell:        First check 28
  44.         Saturn Rosewell:        Second check 32
  45.         Saturn Rosewell:        Wineberry heals 60 HP from this!
  46.         Wineberry:      Wineberry is healed and gains 60 hit points.
  47.         Wineberry:      Wineberry wakes up, but is a last resort if anything.
  48. DNA:    At the very least he's above 0. Now, moving on from before. I do believe Chloe is more interested in Selena?
  49.         Selene:         "Thank you all very much for the rescue."
  50. DNA:    Selene, close enough
  51.         Selene:         "And as for my specialty as a songstress, I would very much like you to know that it is not the power of song or any such nonsense."
  52.         Selene:         "My magicks do not originate from myself, nor does my incredible singing voice have anything to do with my power. It is more akin to words of power rather than a song of power."
  53.         Selene:         "The words are particular and are called Chords."
  54.         Selene:         "The Chords pull at the fundamentals of our world and alter the building blocks of everything."
  55.         Chloe:  Chloe listened in, but didn't have much to add. She seemed a little disapointed that it wasn't tied to the beauty of her voice.
  56.         Saturn Rosewell:        "So it's more so that the words are what have the power, not the song itself?" Saturn was listening, though not exactly engaged.
  57.         Rochette:       "You mention chords and pulling. It calls together a mental image of your words as a pick, and reality a guitar."
  58.         Selene:         "Everything around us are made of an unimaginable amount of tiny, tiny things."
  59.         Selene:         "The combination of these infinitely small things bind together to create the elements that exist everywhere."
  60.         Selene:         "These are the building blocks of our existence."
  61.         Chloe:  "Is it something you learn, or is it a born talent?"
  62.         Selene:         "Nothing is a born talent."
  63.         Nylora:         "It just takes more creativity for some than others to accomplish the same results."
  64.         Chloe:  Chloe paused, but nodded. "Maybe so."
  65.         Selene:         "Magicks are not all that different from say, aura."
  66.         Selene:         "Aura is just the result of evolution on this planet. Where the lifeblood of this world was pushed."
  67.         Selene:         "Magicks is just a different evolution of the same thing."
  68.         Chloe:  "It sounds... really interesting."
  69.         Selene:         "So, the Chords for example."
  70.         Selene:         "They're all around you, but invisible."
  71.         Selene:         "Imagine you had a sheet of gold."
  72.         Selene:         "Very finely pressed, down to a single molecule."
  73.         Selene:         "Sideways, invisible. But if you were to merely look at it from a different angle, it would be all you see."
  74.         Selene:         "Those are the Chords. And they react to vibration and spirit."
  75.         Natasha:        "Je zou kunnen verkopen dat voor een hoop geld!"
  76.         Saturn Rosewell:        "Silly Natasha."
  77.         Chloe:  "I would love to learn something like that." Chloe smiled, hugging her knees to her chest.
  78.         Selene:         "So, with training and a different perspective, you could cause these chords to react to you and use them to interact with reality in ways you never dreamed."
  79.         Chloe:  "How would I train something like that?"
  80.         Nylora:         "No different than learning to conjure fire as a Hitmonchan would."
  81.         Chloe:  Chloe frowned, "Ah... I have no idea how to do that either."
  82.         Rochette:       "Do you have enchantments or something that lets you and your sister understand modern speech so fluently? It seems like your native time was ages ago."
  83.         Chloe:  "If we come back, could you teach me how to sing like you?" Chloe asked at last. It was a while before she had the nerve to.
  84.         Nylora:         Nylora chuckled at Rochette, "No enchantments. Your tongue is merely our own. Perhaps language hasn't changed as much overtime as you'd like to believe."
  85.         Selene:         "Could I? Yes. Will I? That's a different story."
  86.         Nylora:         "Oh please, Selene. It's not as if your powers are what caused complications."
  87.         Selene:         "Not even the reason. My priorities just lie elsewhere than taking students. Once our family is whole, I'd be more than happy to do so."
  88.         Nylora:         Nylora looked down briefly.
  89.         Natasha:        "We hebben nog een meer te gaan, doen we niet?"
  90.         Chloe:  "I see. I know a student would be something big to take on, I didn't expect it, I would just regret it if I never asked."
  91.         Chloe:  Chloe smiled assuringly.
  92.         Saturn Rosewell:        "Ja. Dat is wat we gaan eerst te doen vandaag."
  93.         Selene:         "Also, don't think that I'm asking this task of you. I don't want you to feel that I'm holding this over your head for such a task. I'm fully capable of it myself."
  94.         Rochette:       "We were planning to go back down and get your remaining sibling once we healed up. I'm not going to hold everyone else back if they want to go in, but as I am now I'll just get busted up again."
  95.         Chloe:  "At least, that's what Nylora thought. Do you know who else may have been caught Selene?"
  96.         Selene:         Selene tilted her head in thought and smiled.
  97.         Selene:         "If you were anyway, I won't stop you."
  98.         Nylora:         "From my memory, myself and two others."
  99.         Chloe:  "Then there should be someone else." Chloe nodded assured. "Should we go everyone?" Chloe stood to her feet.
  100.         Rochette:       "Like I said, I won't stop you but I probably shouldn't go either. I can send Roland with you."
  101.         Chloe:  "Are you sure..?"
  102. DNA:    Rochette should be healed of 2 injuries at this point, so she's at 2 remaining
  103.         Rochette:       ((wasn't sure if those bandages used on her before were wasted. she never got the rest time in right away))
  104. DNA:    (I don't think they were, since after that she didn't get hit once.)
  105.         Rochette:       Rochette is healed and gains 5 hit points.
  106. Kaorin Sakura:  Damage is required to invalidate bandages.
  107.         Rochette:       "Well... I could go. I'm actually feeling a little better than I thought. Let's just hope I don't bust my wounds back open again."
  108.         Chloe:  Chloe smiled again, "Lets go!"
  109. The sisters looked among themselves briefly.
  110.         Nylora:         "Well, whereas I have the power of change and Selene has the power of manipulation."
  111.         Nylora:         "Our other sister powers were considered the darkest and evil of us. You will likely need some of our blood in order to release her."
  112.         Chloe:  "B-blood..?"
  113.         Nylora:         "If how we were imprisoned is any indication, yes."
  114.         Selene:         "Does that bother you?"
  115.         Saturn Rosewell:        "Apparently someone likes to get real inventive with imprisonment."
  116.         Chloe:  Chloe shook her head. "I... I guess it doesn't. Not if it helps."
  117.         Rochette:       "Not especially. Could you tell us about the powers and person in question?"
  118.         Selene:         "What do you know of empathy?"
  119.         Rochette:       "Um... ability to understand the feelings of others?"
  120.         Selene:         "How about reverse empathy?"
  121.         Rochette:       "Conveying your emotions to others," she guessed.
  122.         Chloe:  "Making others feel what you do?"
  123.         Nylora:         "Very good. You guys are always impressive."
  124.         Selene:         "Now, what if I told you emotion was powerful enough to leave imprints. Remain long after death."
  125.         Selene:         "She could touch the emotions in a person. Their deepest and most hidden emotions or even bring emotions that were thought lost back to the surface. Or the imprints of those long lost."
  126.         Saturn Rosewell:        "S-S-Scary..."
  127.         Chloe:  Chloe thought. "... so she might have been imprisoned with negative emotions? If she's empathetic. Then she would be dangerous to approach because she'd spread those emotions..."
  128.         Selene:         "She's not empathetic."
  129.         Rochette:       "Hmn... that's actually pretty devastating, in a world like this. Imagine being forced to relive your feelings during the invasion."
  130.         Selene:         "She's disconnected. Too much traumatizing things she's experienced because of her ability."
  131.         Nylora:         "Hers was claimed to be dark magicks. The works of evil. Once she brought emotion into existence. Physical and interactive. You could touch it like she could."
  132.         Saturn Rosewell:        "Touch...emotion?"
  133.         Saturn Rosewell:        "That seems pretty daunting, honestly..."
  134.         Chloe:  "Depending on the person... no... even the kindest person has dark moments.
  135.         Nylora:         "Everyone does."
  136. Avara:  afk
  137.         Chloe:  "So what should we be prepared for?"
  138.         Nylora:         "Do any of you have a sharp object we could use?"
  139.         Selene:         "Expect it to be heavily guarded. If there was one feared, it was her. Even though she took an oath to not use her powers."
  140.         Chloe:  "We found some old blades, but even immortal that has to be dangerous."
  141.         Saturn Rosewell:        "A sharp object? Oh, to prick yourself for blood. Well, we did pick up a knife earlier..."
  142.         Saturn Rosewell:        "...and a broken sword, but that probably wouldn't be smart."
  143.         Chloe:  "Oh! My apricorn ball toolkit. I have some sharp tools I keep clean."
  144.         Selene:         "You'll need a vial.
  145.         Nylora:         "One full of each of our blood. We aren't sure how much you may or may not need. But better to be prepared."
  146.         Chloe:  "I have a cantine."
  147.         Selene:         "Well, let's begin. Better to get it over with."
  148.         Chloe:  Chloe reaches into her backpack and pulls out the items. "I'm sorry you have to do this. But all of this will be over soon. You'll be together again, I promise."
  149. Kaorin Sakura:  So, we can do some handwaving here.
  150. Kaorin Sakura:  Two things to put liquid in will work.
  151.         Chloe:  I have a cantine and a cup, but the cantine has a cap so I offered that.
  152. Kaorin Sakura:  Anyone else? : 3
  153. Avara:  back-ish. used potion bottle.
  154.         Saturn Rosewell:        Checking...
  155. Kaorin Sakura:  A used potion bottle works.
  156. Avara:  i recall using a potion last session.
  157.         Saturn Rosewell:        I...also have 1 of those.
  158.         Chloe:  ((Would prefer that, I like my cantine for healthy. Don't want to become a vampire))
  159. DNA:    Yeah, and then the whole cross-contaminant thing and all.
  160. Avara:  potion bottles it is
  161. DNA:    ^ !
  162. Kaorin Sakura:  Okay! So. You have one bottle of Selene and one bottle of Nylora.
  163. DNA:    That is a very odd turn of phrase.
  164. Avara:  a little surprised nobody else thought of reusing the potions
  165. Kaorin Sakura:  : 3
  166. * Natasha sat on Saturn's hat and pointed forward enthusiastically!
  167. Avara:  i looked through rochette's inventory for improvised containers, and... just struck me as an obvious option.
  168. Avara:  ah well. ONWARD!
  169.         Rochette:       "Right. So... we'll have to see if there's anywhere we haven't explored down there yet."
  170.         Chloe:  Chloe gave the sisters a quick bow as she left with the others.
  171.         Chloe:  "Were there any doors of the room Selene was in?"
  172.         Rochette:       "I can think of some pathways." She bows to the sisters as well.
  173.         Rochette:       "As I recall, the path to Selene was after a fork in the road."
  174.         Saturn Rosewell:        "I don't think so. Let me try to remember..."
  175.         Chloe:  "It was the path with the algae."
  176.         Saturn Rosewell:        "Yeah. There were 3 ways to go, but with the room that Selene herself was in, it was a dead end."
  177.         Rochette:       "So we could try the other two paths."
  178.         Chloe:  "Mmhm."
  179. Kaorin Sakura: (( Think my daughter woke up. BRB ))
  180. Kaorin Sakura: (( Back. ))
  181. Kaorin Sakura:  So, I take it you all are heading back into the cave?
  182. DNA:    ye
  183.         Chloe:  We head to the fork in the cave at the very least
  184. Avara:  aye
  185. With Natasha as your light source, you can navigate back to that particular cave with little effort.
  186. The algae in the cave lie dormant until you arrive. growing into flowers and giving off an iridescent glow when you enter the cave tunnel. It stretches, again, to the same three passage ways. You've already descended through the north to rescue Selene. Your new venues are northwest which remains ground level and northeast, which ascends.
  187.         Chloe:  "They wouldn't hide their most dangerous prisoner closer to the surface."
  188. * Saturn Rosewell was walking a little hurriedly, not wanting those plants to get closer to her.
  189.         Saturn Rosewell:        "True, so we can probably rule out northeast, but it could go back down again. We don't know. Still, northwest remains our best best."
  190.         Rochette:       "Well, unless the upper path leads up to a mountain or something."
  191.         Chloe:  Chloe checks both paths. She bares her face to see if she can feel airflow, smells the air for which may be fresher.
  192.         Chloe:  Perception
  193. You whisper to Kaorin Sakura: Do Nylora and Selene have similar auras?
  194. Kaorin Sakura whispers: You aren't within range to study their aura, atm.
  195. You whisper to Kaorin Sakura: Pooh. Was going to see if I could try an Intu check to sense aura afar off.
  196.         Chloe:  "It feels like Northeastern might lead out. I think we should go the other way."
  197.         Rochette:       "Alright."
  198.         Saturn Rosewell:        "Whatever we do, let's just do it quick."
  199.         Chloe:  "Yes, lets hurry." Chloe gave a glance to the algae before heading down the northwest path.
  200.         Rochette:       Rochette looks back at the algae and points at it. "Stay. Don't make us burn you out again." She then follows Chloe.
  201. * Saturn Rosewell hurries after them, trying not to even look at the algae.
  202.         Chloe:  Chloe slows her pace to a walk as soon as the algae grows dormant again, keeping an eye out for any nasty surprises
  203. As you go down the northwestern path, the cave tunnel grows a bit wider before opening into an open area. What appears to have been once a stone path remains now smooth, eroded stones scattered in a general direction. The area is flooded but appears to be no deeper than a foot. The area is dimly lit but monstrously large plants that glow a mettalic blue. There are what nothing could describe better than ruins scattered across this area. The vague shapes of a square building are what's left to your immediate right. The stone structure worn away and what you believe to be a doorway faces you. The water is still.
  204.         Chloe:  Chloe looks at the water, checking for ripples. "I wonder if anything is living in here..."
  205. You whisper to Kaorin Sakura: Intuition to check for life (3d6+1)
  206.         Chloe:  "Nothing moving. I'm glad I brought boots." Chloe stepped in the water.
  207. Kaorin Sakura whispers: You immediately see the plant life.
  208. You whisper to Kaorin Sakura: Anything else?
  209. Kaorin Sakura whispers: Life wise? Not that you can tell.
  210.         Saturn Rosewell:        "Eww. I hate this place. Let's just find what we came for and leave." Perception to see if anything leads anywhere else:
  211. Kaorin Sakura whispers: The vague eroded stone path seems to lead somewhere. Otherwise there's plenty of ruins around you. The area is very open and suddenly very large and expansive.
  212. Kaorin Sakura: (( Noting that the area is large and expensive when you reach the water. In case I failed to mention that. ))
  213.         Saturn Rosewell:        "I can see the path keeps going. I don't really see anything else here, though... Let's hope there's nothing else."
  214.         Chloe:  (Expensive? )
  215. DNA:    ^I also noticed this
  216.         Chloe:  "I'm worried about those plants. Glowing plants have meant bad things so far. Does Natasha know anything about these?"
  217.         Natasha:        (Are these the same kinds of plants as before?)
  218. Kaorin Sakura:  They don't appear to be the same kind.
  219. Kaorin Sakura:  But, here's the best image I could find for reference.
  220. https://farm4.staticflickr.com/3735/14109759430_4bc6fdde68_b.jpg
  221.         Chloe:  "Hm... maybe I should take a clipping from these and see if I can grow them. They're so beautiful..."
  222.         Natasha:        Then it's time to scan them, with Aura Reader! And some checks as well. Gen Ed (6d6+2)! Intuition (4d6+4)!
  223. DNA:    Mm, that's about how I visualized this place in my mind's eye.
  224. Kaorin Sakura whispers: They appear to be very similar to something you've encountered before. How about an edu general or medicine. Or even survival to see if you can pinpoint it.
  225.         Chloe:  "Should we look around? We should at least find as many paths out of this room as we can. Or any items scattered about, I did't think about it but we're pretty much ruin divers now, aren't we." Chloe laughed.
  226. Player "I" is not connected.
  227. Kaorin Sakura whispers: some music
  228. http://www.newgrounds.com/audio/listen/556420
  229. You whisper to Kaorin Sakura: I just gave you a Gen Ed, silly!
  230. Kaorin Sakura whispers: So you did!
  231. * Natasha scrutinizes the plants, trying to look as serious as possible. But she can't stop smiling, so her serious face mostly comes off looking right silly.
  232. Kaorin Sakura whispers: You recognize it to be very, very similar to Pecha berry trees in aura. Though these were grown and raised in this environment that have adapted to this underground domain. Wonder if they still retain their restorative properties...
  233. You whisper to Kaorin Sakura: Can I distinguish if there are any berries on these trees?
  234.         Chloe:  Chloe looks around the room, focusing on any objects that might be flickering at the bottom of the water.
  235. Kaorin Sakura whispers: You can! And they are.
  236.         Natasha:        "Ah!"
  237. * Natasha turned back to Saturn.
  238.         Natasha:        "Ze lijken erg op Pecha bomen, net gegroeid ondergronds. Er zijn een paar bessen op hen en ze kunnen hetzelfde zijn! Zal ik gaan kijken?"
  239.         Saturn Rosewell:        "Ja, graag. Terug te brengen een paar bessen, zodat ik ze kan controleren."
  240. * Natasha zipped off towards 1 of the trees, and picked off a few of the berries to bring back! 3 sounds like a good number, at least for now.
  241. * Saturn Rosewell analyzes them with a Medicine (4d6+2) check!
  242. Kaorin Sakura whispers: You're able to harvest 2 berries from the plant. They give a faint purple glow. Your medical knowledge allows you to discern that they are special berries that have incredible restorative properties. Rather than cure poison, they're able to mend the body much like that of a bandage.
  243. You whisper to Kaorin Sakura: Ooh, interesting! How fast does it heal an injury? And will its effect be nulled if the person takes damage?
  244. Kaorin Sakura whispers: Functions like a bandage, except its a berry. Damage will nullify it.
  245. You whisper to Kaorin Sakura: So...heals an injury after 6 hours? or 3 with that fancy medic feature?
  246. Kaorin Sakura whispers: Yes.
  247. Kaorin Sakura whispers: And as they are berries, they can be grown.
  248.         Saturn Rosewell:        "Well! This is a fantastic discovery! Thanks, Natasha!"
  249. * Natasha blushed and sheepishly put her hands behind her back.
  250.         Saturn Rosewell:        "Chloe, when you have a moment... I have something you might be interested in!"
  251.         Chloe:  "This water is really murky... Hm? What did you find?"
  252.         Saturn Rosewell:        "It's...It's some berries." She held out her hand, holding 2 of the berries picked from the plants.
  253.         Saturn Rosewell:        "Upon first glance they look like Pecha berries, but...they actually work just like bandages."
  254.         Chloe:  "Really? Wow! How does that even..." Chloe laughed.
  255.         Saturn Rosewell:        Saturn allowed herself a small smile. "I don't know, but with something like this, we shouldn't let this opportunity go to waste."
  256.         Saturn Rosewell:        "We can grow our own bandages, pretty much! We'll be fine on the road."
  257.         Chloe:  "Well, I'll be sure to invest whatever I can into getting another planter. I'm trying to grow my own pokeballs and I have a lum plant as well." Chloe looked to the ground around her feet, "All I was able to find is that the water here is hard to see through. I'm not sure what's causing it, but we're not about to find anything under the surface."
  258.         Saturn Rosewell:        "Heh, that's fine. No rush. Just don't forget, that's all I ask."
  259.         Saturn Rosewell:        "Did you find out where the water's coming from? Based on how it looks, it doesn't appear stagnant..."
  260.         Chloe:  "Well, no detail is unimportant. It's what's helped us to discover what we have so far." Chloe paused, "Really? I didn't notice water flow at all, I must have been too focused on checking for ripples."
  261. DNA:    I read that as nipples
  262.         Saturn Rosewell:        "Stagnant water breeds insects and other strange animals, and it smells awful. We've seen none of those things in this water, so there has to be a current, however slight, somewhere around here."
  263.         Chloe:  "I think I noticed something." Chloe moved to the right to investigate what caught her eye. Perception
  264. * Saturn Rosewell awaits the news.
  265.         Chloe:  Chloe hushed to a whisper, "I think I see a shadow of something. It could just be a rock, but we should be careful." Chloe pointed out the shadow.
  266. Chloe points to the ruins to your immediate right. There is, in fact, a medium sized shadow on the floor of the ruins.
  267.         Saturn Rosewell:        "...!" Perception to see what kind of shadow it is:
  268. Kaorin Sakura whispers: You discern from the shadow that it has: Two pairs of wings, an ovipositor, four legs and with what appear to be two talons.
  269. Kaorin Sakura whispers: Remove the word 'what'.
  270. Kaorin Sakura whispers: Erm, with, not what. Geez.
  271.         Saturn Rosewell:        Pokemon Edu:
  272. Kaorin Sakura whispers: A bug Pok�mon of some kind. Judging from its size, it could be a Beedrill, Dustox or Venomoth.
  273. * Saturn Rosewell whispers very softly to Chloe: "I think it's a Beedrill."
  274. * Natasha stood poised and at the ready.
  275.         Chloe:  "Why is one here...?"
  276.         Saturn Rosewell:        "I don't know, but we don't know why these trees are here either. This could be related."
  277. * Natasha takes the chance to see if there's anything Pokemon-related on the trees! Pkmn Edu
  278.         Chloe:  "Can you tell if its hostile?"
  279. You whisper to Kaorin Sakura: Can I teel if it's hostile by the shadow alone (or what I know, rather)?
  280. Kaorin Sakura whispers: Natasha can discern easily that the plants glow comes from the oil on its leaves. It could be some sort of nectar but its definitely edible and provides nutrients to the berries it produces. It smells sweet.
  281. Kaorin Sakura whispers: You can tell that its alone and unmoving.
  282. You whisper to Kaorin Sakura: Can I tell if it's alive or dead? Or perching on something?
  283. Kaorin Sakura whispers: It appears to be standing on the floor of the ruin and you can tell that nothing of it moves. Not its antennae, its legs, or its wings. You presume it to be dead.
  284.         Saturn Rosewell:        "...I think it's dead. It's not moving. Like, at all."
  285.         Chloe:  Chloe hesitantly walked toward the beedrill.
  286. Kaorin Sakura:  Just Chloe?
  287. * Saturn Rosewell will also be going over.
  288.         Chloe:  ((Chloe has no pokemon out))
  289.         Saturn Rosewell:        And Natasha is following, of course.
  290. Kaorin Sakura:  To clarify, are you entering the ruins or just approaching it? The shadow is from in the ruins.
  291.         Saturn Rosewell:        Approach first, I'd think?
  292.         Chloe:  At first, see if there's any reaction.
  293. As you approach the ruins you can see some of the plant-life has claims some of the walls as its own, creating a vine-like network over it. You can see some stone boxes scattered around the ruins and no reaction from the shadow.
  294.         Saturn Rosewell:        Medicine check on the vines!
  295. Kaorin Sakura:  You'll need to specify what you're doing with that skill check.
  296.         Chloe:  Chloe investigates the boxes!
  297.         Chloe:  Perception if it is needed.
  298. Kaorin Sakura:  Should I assume you enter the ruins?
  299.         Chloe:  Aren't the boxes outside?
  300.         Saturn Rosewell:        Uhh...try and find out what kind of vines they are and if they have any bad properties. Also if they're alive.
  301. Kaorin Sakura: (( The boxes are scattred around within the ruins. Sorry. ))
  302.         Chloe:  Then I do enter the ruins.
  303. Kaorin Sakura whispers: The vines are alive, as much as the plant. And they don't seem to serve any immediate medical purposes.
  304. * Saturn Rosewell and Natasha will follow Chloe. Very closely.
  305. When you enter the ruins, you can see the wasp-like body standing motionless on its four legs. Its two needle-like arms are stabbed into the stone floor. There is a hole in its back from where it seems it was injured. Its body is a dull copper colour compared to the usual Beedrill you see and its wings are full of holes. You can give me a medicine check for its condition.
  306.         Saturn Rosewell:        Will do:
  307.         Chloe:  Medicine. "Is that some form of shedded skin?"
  308. Kaorin Sakura whispers: Your medical knowledge allows you to discern that it is the exoskeleton of the Pok�mon. Whatever it was before was eaten from the inside out through whatever injury it sustained from its back. You can see no exit wound, however so either whatever ate it is still inside of it or it left through the initial injury.
  309. * Saturn Rosewell gulped a bit.
  310.         Chloe:  Chloe nodded, realizing what it was at the same moment Saturn did.
  311.         Saturn Rosewell:        "Looks like it died from some sort of parasite. Whatever killed it did so from within, so whatever ate it either left from the initial injury...or is still inside its body."
  312.         Chloe:  Chloe shifted uncomfortably.
  313.         Chloe:  "I think it's still there..."
  314. You whisper to Kaorin Sakura: Intuition to sense aura in it:
  315. You whisper to Kaorin Sakura: Natasha does the same:
  316. Kaorin Sakura whispers: You do! You sense several motionless bodies of aura within it.
  317. Kaorin Sakura whispers: Natasha senses the same thing.
  318.         Chloe:  Education Pokemon: Parasites.
  319.         Saturn Rosewell:        "...It's still inside it, and they're not moving." Pkmn Edu to identify what type, if possible:
  320. Kaorin Sakura whispers: The aura in it still seems to be developing. It has no distinct aura as of yet.
  321.         Saturn Rosewell:        "...? That's odd..."
  322.         Chloe:  "I don't think a pokemon would do that, but we've met a fair share of strange lifeforms down here."
  323.         Saturn Rosewell:        "Looks like it's a parasite that's still developing. It's not full grown yet."
  324.         Saturn Rosewell:        "I know some creatures do that in development; perhaps we should just leave it be?"
  325. Kaorin Sakura whispers: Natasha can identify the aura as an oval shape.
  326. Kaorin Sakura whispers: She can make out four separate oval shapes.
  327.         Natasha:        "Vier van hen?"
  328.         Chloe:  "That might be for the best..." Chloe looks around for more doorways in the ruin.
  329.         Saturn Rosewell:        "Four of them? ...still we should probably leave it alone."
  330. * Saturn Rosewell looks around at some of the boxes nearby.
  331. Kaorin Sakura:  Chloe had already rummaged through the stone boxes.
  332.         Chloe:  "I can carry most of it, but there's a rather nice chair that we might have to grab on the way back out"
  333.         Saturn Rosewell:        "...a chair?"
  334. The body cracks loudly.
  335.         Saturn Rosewell:        "Assuming we can get it back in one piece, we could sell it t--uh oh."
  336. * Natasha was still by Saturn, but she whipped her head around at the noise! She was ready!
  337.         Chloe:  Chloe sent out Nega as a response!
  338.         Nega:   : |
  339. DNA:    lol :|
  340. From the crack, the head of the exoskeleton falls off and shatters onto the stone floor.
  341. The vines retract from the flash of light emitted by the Pokeball and retreat from the stone walls.
  342. There's a crackling sound from within the exoskeleton and from where you are, you can see a hardened black oval shaped object wiggling inside. There's a cracking sound and you suddenly realize its an egg.
  343.         Nega:   : }
  344. The egg cracks open and crawling out of it appears to be a long, slender creature with over a dozen legs a long, sharp needle protruding from its head. Its body is entirely black, the needle glowing a feint blue and bright copper coloured rings all over its body.
  345.         Saturn Rosewell:        Pkmn Edu!
  346.         Nega:   Nega uses Transform.
  347. The creature crawls out of the exoskeleton and falls onto the stone floor with an audible smack.
  348. DNA:    OOC, my gut guess tells me it's a Venipede!
  349. Kaorin Sakura whispers: It appears to be a Weedle.
  350. Kaorin Sakura whispers: Physically, it resembles a Weedle in almost every respect. Aside from its strange hatching location and odd colourations.
  351. Kaorin Sakura:  Is Nega copying the target or...?
  352. You whisper to Kaorin Sakura: Same size as one?
  353. Kaorin Sakura whispers: It's small size.
  354.         Nega:   The creature
  355.         Saturn Rosewell:        "Is that a...wait, is that a Weedle?"
  356.         Saturn Rosewell:        "Certainly like no Weedle I've seen but...why was the egg still inside the body?"
  357.         Nega:   : }
  358. You whisper to Kaorin Sakura: Is the Weedle doing anything?
  359.         Chloe Blanchett:        Chloe waited for the pokemon to show hostility, but realized that this was no different than hatching a pokemon. "... Hello there cutie! You've been waiting to hatch for a while haven't you! You're a stubborn one, keeping us waiting like that." Guile to act like she owned the egg. 11
  360. The creature squirms before rolling onto its feet and looking around.
  361.         Chloe Blanchett:        ((I totally had GM on there... I can reroll))
  362. The creature gives Chloe a questioning look and looks around again before slowly trotting toward Chloe. It begins to sniff her cautiously.
  363.         Chloe Blanchett:        Chloe crouches down, lifting out a friend ball, "C'mon, we can get going in just a moment. Tap the button and we'll be on our way sweetie." Charm
  364. The creature recognizes Chloe's scent from the surrounding area and nods, tapping the ball and accepting capture.
  365.         Saturn Rosewell:        "...Nicely done."
  366.         Chloe Blanchett:        Chloe beamed.
  367.         Saturn Rosewell:        "I was fearing that was going to get really unpleasant. You handled that wonderfully."
  368. You whisper to Kaorin Sakura: I check to see if there are any auras still in that Beedrill! Intuition! Or just use the previous result, whatever works.
  369. Kaorin Sakura whispers: Three more remain.
  370.         Chloe Blanchett:        "I might end up being a bug trainer~" Chloe giggled.
  371.         Natasha:        "De andere drie zijn er nog steeds in."
  372.         Saturn Rosewell:        "3 more?"
  373.         Saturn Rosewell:        "Probably the same type as before, though we probably shouldn't take them all. Ecosystem and all that."
  374.         Chloe Blanchett:        Chloe recalled Nega as well.
  375.         Saturn Rosewell:        "I mean, you got what you wanted, right Chloe? We can leave this guy alone and keep looking for Nylora's sister."
  376.         Chloe Blanchett:        "Mmhm... I was worried there was going to be a plant or spore that might spread to other species... but a pokemon, that isn't too dangerous."
  377. Kaorin Sakura:  Well, let's call it here for now.
  378. Kaorin Sakura:  Lesse. Experience.
  379. Kaorin Sakura:  17 Experience to Natasha, Roland and Nega.
  380. Kaorin Sakura:  3 Trainer Expeirence.
  381. DNA:    2.9
  382. DNA:    damn
  383.         Chloe Blanchett:        We level next session!
  384. Kaorin Sakura:  Oh?
  385.         Chloe Blanchett:        yus
  386. Kaorin Sakura:  Well then, make that 4.
  387. DNA:    \o/
  388.         Chloe Blanchett:        heh
  389. * DNA then proceeds to give Saturn the best feature ever
  390. Kaorin Sakura:  Hahaha
  391. DNA:    The party is now under the effect of THERAPEUTIC CARE
  392. DNA:    HAHAHAHAHAHAHA
  393.         Chloe Blanchett:        Does that stack with other Therapeutic Care?
  394. Kaorin Sakura:  Take note of your Weedle's information the and loot you got, Chloe.
  395. Kaorin Sakura:  No.
  396.         Chloe Blanchett:        I did!
  397. Kaorin Sakura:  Saving campaign!
  398. DNA:    ...I don't even think we have a second medic anyway. But yeah, it does not stack.
  399. Kaorin Sakura:  Hobbyist can pick it up methinks.
  400. DNA:    Ah.
  401. Kaorin Sakura:  Saving log!
  402. Final location: The Keep.
  403. Kaorin Sakura is disconnected.
  404. You have disconnected.
