  1. [15:28:03] <@Giantree> Plop!
  2. [15:28:09] <@Giantree> ... Plop plop plop plop.
  3. [15:28:35] <@Giantree> Four unsuspecting souls fall through a hole in the ceiling, onto a dirt-covered cavernous ground.
  4. [15:28:39] <@Giantree> ... Five.
  5. [15:29:00] <@Giantree> In fact, make it six- in front of them is a menacing, green, giant insect.
  6. [15:29:08] <@Giantree> http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v5FR_i-EbDc
  7. [15:29:22] <Briar> "What the hell, who put a hole in the forest. HOLY SHIT!"
  8. [15:29:35] <@Giantree> (OKAY, what's happening here is we're going in order of DEX instead of names or something, SO)
  9. [15:29:48] <BB> (14 DEX)
  10. [15:29:54] <Naida> 10 here
  11. [15:30:00] <Terse> 13
  12. [15:30:09] <Breezy> 6
  13. [15:30:14] <Lyle> 12 here
  14. [15:30:43] <Briar> 12 here (because I do not have the equipment)
  15. [15:31:21] * Giantree changes topic to 'Lucia > Terse > Briar = Lyle > Naida = Mantis Ant > Breezy'
  16. [15:31:22] <Briar> BGM: www.youtuberepeat.com/watch?v=v5FR_i-EbDc
  17. [15:31:49] <@Giantree> (wow, you people and your crazy DEX-- also Terse's sheet totally still says 11)
  18. [15:31:53] <Lyle> Geez, HOW many Dex dumps do we have?
  19. [15:32:07] <@Giantree> Actually, that's six people who aren't Mantis Ants!  In fact they even caught him by surprise.
  20. [15:32:38] <Naida> Back attack?
  21. [15:32:54] <@Giantree> Oh, not literally!  Just... they're all faster.
  22. [15:33:00] <@Giantree> That SAID, Lucia's turn is first.
  23. [15:33:43] <Lucia> ((Okaay ready now
  24. [15:34:15] <@Giantree> (Yeah, go for it)
  25. [15:34:27] <Lucia> 2d6+5 Attack
  26. [15:34:28] <DiceMaid-9001> Lucia, Attack: 11 [2d6=3,3]
  27. [15:35:52] <@Giantree> Hits!  The Mantis Ant gro- no, it doesn't growl, it roars.
  28. [15:35:58] <@Giantree> Actually it screeches.
  29. [15:36:08] <Lucia> ((34 phys damage)
  30. [15:36:12] <Lucia> ((POsing now
  31. [15:36:14] <Naida> *tictickticktick*
  32. [15:36:43] * Lucia withdraws her claws, pouncing down upon the beast with a series of ruthless strikes, making full use of the advantage.
  33. [15:37:06] <@Giantree> The Ant's armor takes some heavy scrapes, causing it to flail violently.
  34. [15:37:08] <@Giantree> Terse!
  35. [15:37:53] * Briar pulls out his whip and starts spinning it rapidly over his head, waiting for an opening.
  36. [15:38:01] <Terse> typing)
  37. [15:38:29] * Terse runs forward, going into a horizontal-bodied leap over the ant's claw and rolling away through the dirt.  There was a gleam of steel somewhere in that motion!
  38. [15:38:36] <Terse> 2d6+4
  39. [15:38:37] <DiceMaid-9001> Terse, 2d6+4: 13 [2d6=3,6]
  40. [15:38:41] <@Giantree> Definitely hits.
  41. [15:39:54] <Terse> 9+26=35 damage
  42. [15:39:59] <Terse> WAIT
  43. [15:40:02] <Terse> THERE'S MORE!
  44. [15:40:16] <@Giantree> OH BOY
  45. [15:40:22] <Terse> additional +13 damage from SNEAK ATTACK
  46. [15:40:35] <Terse> for a total of 48
  47. [15:40:52] <Naida> did we sneak attack it?
  48. [15:40:56] <Naida> or was that just fluff?
  49. [15:41:04] <Terse> It's the special ability of Concealed weapons
  50. [15:41:07] <@Giantree> That WAS just fluff, but- ^
  51. [15:41:12] <Naida> ah
  52. [15:41:16] <Terse> they deal +1 damage step and can reroll on a miss on your first turn
  53. [15:41:30] <@Giantree> So it screeches again, leaking some green... something.  Nobody should really question these bug things.
  54. [15:41:31] <Terse>      <Giantree>      (wow, you people and your crazy DEX-- also Terse's sheet totally still says 11)
  55. [15:41:41] <Terse> 11 plus a bonus of 2 = 13
  56. [15:41:51] <@Giantree> (Yeah, I caught it, the bonus just wasn't recorded on the stats)
  57. [15:42:10] <@Giantree> Briar or Lyle, now, play nice.
  58. [15:42:19] <@Giantree> ... Or go simultaneously, that works too.
  59. [15:42:33] <Naida> COMBINATION ATTACK
  60. [15:42:42] * Briar spins his whip faster and faster, deftly not hitting anyone, and jumps up in the air releasing a loud crack at the mantis ant.
  61. [15:42:45] <Lyle> Heehee
  62. [15:42:53] <Briar> 2d6 Roll;5 Acc;11+11 Damage
  63. [15:42:53] <DiceMaid-9001> Briar, Roll: 5 [2d6=3,2]; Acc: 5 []; Damage: 22 []
  64. [15:43:06] <Briar> (Does a 10 hit?)
  65. [15:43:17] <@Giantree> (It doesn't.)
  66. [15:43:42] <@Giantree> The Mantis deflects the whip with its claw and leaps back!  Amazing it didn't get wrapped around the thing, all things considered.
  67. [15:43:58] <Lyle> 2d6+5 roll; 2d6+16 Damage
  68. [15:43:58] <DiceMaid-9001> Lyle, roll: 15 [2d6=4,6]; Damage: 20 [2d6=3,1]
  69. [15:44:15] * Briar leaps back away from the ant, cursing (short range movement as an instant action)
  70. [15:44:25] <@Giantree> THAT hits- keep in mind, though, damage is based off the ACC roll, so that's actually 26.
  71. [15:44:41] <Lyle> Oh, okay.
  72. [15:45:08] * Lyle runs in and slashes at the Mantis Ant while Briar's distracting it.
  73. [15:45:30] <@Giantree> Gushes.  The Mantis Ant screeches and swings its claws back and forth.
  74. [15:45:38] <@Giantree> Naida, gimme a 1d6 rolloff, highest goes first
  75. [15:45:40] <@Giantree> 1d6
  76. [15:45:41] <DiceMaid-9001> Giantree, 1d6: 1 [1d6=1]
  77. [15:45:51] <Naida> 1d6
  78. [15:45:52] <DiceMaid-9001> Naida, 1d6: 5 [1d6=5]
  79. [15:46:01] <@Giantree> ... Swings its claws back and forth fairly slowly.
  80. [15:46:16] <Terse> (Lyle, remember that if you don't describe an attack, it gets -2)
  81. [15:46:22] <Terse> ( :P )
  82. [15:46:29] <@Giantree> (OH, I'M WATCHING FOR THAT)
  83. [15:46:44] <Naida> Ugh, this thing looks tough, I'd better. . . ELENTAL SPIKES!(on me)
  84. [15:46:44] <Lyle> (Gotcha.)
  85. [15:46:52] <Naida> ELEMENTAL EVEN
  86. [15:47:01] <@Giantree> So, chanting starts?
  87. [15:47:08] <Naida> sure I guess
  88. [15:47:35] <@Giantree> Angrily, the Mantis Ant... spins around behind it!  It wants revenge on the NINJA who gave it a good scratch.
  89. [15:47:49] <@Giantree> 2d6+6 on Lucia... which doesn't look too bright for it
  90. [15:47:51] <DiceMaid-9001> Giantree, on Lucia... which doesn't look too bright for it: 11 [2d6=4,1]
  91. [15:47:57] <Lucia> ((Dodge))
  92. [15:48:10] <@Giantree> Yeah, that doesn't hit.  Its claw detaches, spins about... and hits nothing!
  93. [15:48:35] <Breezy> 2d6+7
  94. [15:48:36] <DiceMaid-9001> Breezy, 2d6+7: 14 [2d6=4,3]
  95. [15:48:55] <@Giantree> Hits it.
  96. [15:48:57] <Briar> "Oooh, they detach?" Briar starts chuckling.
  97. [15:49:05] <@Giantree> "Skreeeeeeeeeeee!"
  98. [15:49:33] <Terse> "No time for giggling."
  99. [15:49:37] * Lucia evades out of the way, covering herself with her cloak as she sidesteps.
  100. [15:49:56] <Breezy> Breezy bobs and weaves for a little bit while closing in on the monster. That gets boring fast, so the spriteboxer starts throwing fisticuffs like there's nothing better to do. 39 damage.
  101. [15:50:27] <@Giantree> The Ant reels back and scratches its claws together, swaying in an ominous fashion.  It glows a little.
  102. [15:50:37] <@Giantree> ... Aaaand back to the top.  Lucia?
  103. [15:51:31] <Lucia> 2d6+5 Attack
  104. [15:51:32] <DiceMaid-9001> Lucia, Attack: 10 [2d6=1,4]
  105. [15:51:37] <Lucia> ((Dice hate me.))
  106. [15:52:12] <@Giantree> Dodging took up all the totally-not-vampire's energy, apparently, since it just walks forward while still making annoying noises.  Terse?
  107. [15:53:21] <Terse> Terse, meanwhile, actually has his knife visible now, the balisong flicking in a pinwheel of blade and handles between his fingers as he darts forward, nearly giving himself a haircut on one of the claws as he ducks behind its knee and stabs backwards at the joint of its leg.
  108. [15:53:26] <Terse> 2d6+4
  109. [15:53:27] <DiceMaid-9001> Terse, 2d6+4: 11 [2d6=2,5]
  110. [15:53:36] <@Giantree> Baaaarely hits.
  111. [15:54:00] <Terse> 7+26=33 damage
  112. [15:54:31] * Briar aims for the claw as it makes its way back to the mantis any. 'If I aim this just right...'
  113. [15:54:32] <@Giantree> It limps on that leg for a second, still trying to focus.  Lyliar.
  114. [15:54:52] <Briar> 2d6+6 Steal the claw!
  115. [15:54:53] <DiceMaid-9001> Briar, Steal the claw!: 10 [2d6=3,1]
  116. [15:55:00] * Lyle would smirk. "Looks like it's almost done..."
  117. [15:55:15] <Briar> (does a 10 beat the higher of his strength or dex?)
  118. [15:55:44] <Terse> (Very clever)
  119. [15:55:44] <@Giantree> (It ties, actually)
  120. [15:56:00] <@Giantree> (And if there aren't rules for that... hmmmm, HMMMM.)
  121. [15:56:17] <Briar> (Disarm. Steal can be used to take weapons)
  122. [15:56:27] <@Giantree> (Yeah, go ahead and consider that a success)
  123. [15:56:41] <Briar> "I'll take this, thank you very much."
  124. [15:56:47] <Terse> (What's the rule for whether he can pick it up again or not?)
  125. [15:56:57] <Terse> (I'm pretty sure normal disarms just tug it to the ground)
  126. [15:57:17] * Lyle would toss his blade up, it flipping vertically in the air, before catching it, then he'd toss the blade right at the mantis, dashing after it...(continued after I find out whether I'll hit or not...)
  127. [15:57:26] <@Giantree> (That was STEAL, though, so he actually has it)
  128. [15:57:36] <Lyle> 2d6+6 hit; Damage: 16+roll
  129. [15:57:37] <DiceMaid-9001> Lyle, hit: 12 [2d6=1,5]; 16+roll: 0 []
  130. [15:57:39] <Terse> (Yep)
  131. [15:57:40] <Briar> Everyone sees the whip from the squirrel like creature extend accross the room and grab the claw out of mid air and return it to the squirrel,
  132. [15:57:52] <@Giantree> Does hit, and that's a 22.
  133. [15:58:56] * Lyle would rush in as the blade pierced right into the mantis' flesh, catching up to it after the blade sinks in and then RIPPING it out with a slashing motion to maximize the amount of damage he's doing.
  134. [15:59:38] <@Giantree> But does the mantis actually HAVE flesh?  ... Well, we'll figure that out later.
  135. [15:59:45] <@Giantree> 1d6 let's do this again, Nydah
  136. [15:59:46] <DiceMaid-9001> Giantree, let's do this again, Nydah: 5 [1d6=5]
  137. [15:59:52] <Naida> 1d6
  138. [15:59:53] <DiceMaid-9001> Naida, 1d6: 4 [1d6=4]
  139. [15:59:59] <Naida> fff
  140. [16:00:38] <@Giantree> ENRAGED at the squirrel, its eyes flare!  The glowing Ant stops as everything around it seems to pause and the background darkens.
  141. [16:00:44] <@Giantree> GEM MISSILE lv.1!
  142. [16:00:54] <@Giantree> 2d6+18 on Briar
  143. [16:00:54] <DiceMaid-9001> Giantree, on Briar: 26 [2d6=2,6]
  144. [16:01:44] <@Giantree> It stomps a couple steps forward after bits of stone fly into the Chobin, and then starts glowing again.  All he wanted was his claw back ;_;
  145. [16:02:27] * Giantree changes topic to 'Lucia > Terse > Briar = Lyle > Naida = Mantis Ant > Breezy > Mantis Ant (Surprise!)'
  146. [16:03:46] * Terse has nothing to complain about~
  147. [16:04:39] <Naida> ELEMENTAL SPIKES! Electric orbs begin circling Naida as she begins chanting another spell.
  148. [16:05:38] <@Giantree> The ant keeps glowing.  Breezy!
  149. [16:06:07] <Briar> "Team up. Break its spell. Ow Damn."
  150. [16:07:25] <Terse> "Why?"
  151. [16:07:41] <Breezy> "Whoa! It knows magic? So do I! I cast... Fist!"
  152. [16:07:48] <Breezy> 2d6+7
  153. [16:07:49] <DiceMaid-9001> Breezy, 2d6+7: 17 [2d6=4,6]
  154. [16:07:55] <Briar> "I can't take another hit like that."
  155. [16:08:04] <Briar> "That's why."
  156. [16:08:37] <@Giantree> The MUSCLE WIZARD succeeds.  And the Ant reels back a good deal...
  157. [16:08:45] * Briar yanks a rock from his leg.
  158. [16:08:48] <Breezy> Breezy casts the legendary fist spell, throwing a flurry of bare-fisted punches anywhere actually reachable, jumping as necessary. 42 damage.
  159. [16:09:38] <@Giantree> It stands and shoots rock after rock at its assailant!  It was NOT happy about being punched like that, at all.
  160. [16:09:49] <@Giantree> 2d6+15 on Breezy this time, M.ARM damage
  161. [16:09:50] <DiceMaid-9001> Giantree, on Breezy this time, M.ARM damage: 21 [2d6=4,2]
  162. [16:10:12] <@Giantree> Then it continues stomping forward, throwing out a small jab at...
  163. [16:10:14] <@Giantree> 1d6
  164. [16:10:15] <DiceMaid-9001> Giantree, 1d6: 2 [1d6=2]
  165. [16:10:24] <@Giantree> Well, that doesn't work, since Briar's all the way over there.
  166. [16:10:30] <@Giantree> 1d6
  167. [16:10:30] <DiceMaid-9001> Giantree, 1d6: 3 [1d6=3]
  168. [16:10:40] <Briar> "You, blade guy. I'll get its legs, you get its face."
  169. [16:10:43] <@Giantree> 2d6+6 he really doesn't like that succubus
  170. [16:10:43] <DiceMaid-9001> Giantree, he really doesn't like that succubus: 12 [2d6=1,5]
  171. [16:10:46] <Lyle> Gotcha'
  172. [16:10:50] <@Giantree> And the dice really don't like him.
  173. [16:11:46] <@Giantree> So that said, it IS Lucia's turn again.
  174. [16:11:47] <Lucia> ((Aaaand my turn, yes?))
  175. [16:11:53] <Lucia> 2d6+5 Attack
  176. [16:11:54] <DiceMaid-9001> Lucia, Attack: 8 [2d6=1,2]
  177. [16:11:58] <Lucia> ((Fucking hell))
  178. [16:12:00] <@Giantree> nope.jpg
  179. [16:12:08] <@Giantree> Will Terse have better luck?
  180. [16:13:22] * Terse stays inside its reach, knowing from experience in the ILLEGAL INSECT-FIGHTING LEAGUES that predatory insects tend to conserve their energy and focus on opponents within their ideal striking distance, aiming a hamstringing slash at its other leg this time!
  181. [16:13:26] <Terse> 2d6+4
  182. [16:13:27] <DiceMaid-9001> Terse, 2d6+4: 11 [2d6=2,5]
  183. [16:13:34] <Terse> :shades:
  184. [16:13:36] * Lyle would sheathe his blade...wait, what? He'd get into a ready stance. "Ready when you are, Chobin."
  185. [16:13:42] <@Giantree> It's already hobbling.
  186. [16:14:08] <Terse> 33!
  187. [16:15:26] <Briar> 2d6+5-2;22 damage Team Attack
  188. [16:15:26] <DiceMaid-9001> Briar, 2d6+5-2: 11 [2d6=5,3]; damage Team Attack: 22 []
  189. [16:15:57] <Briar> "NOW!"
  190. [16:16:11] <Briar> Briar launches his whip at the legs of the mantis
  191. [16:16:24] <@Giantree> Part of it hits, and...!
  192. [16:17:26] * Lyle rushes in, drawing his blade out in a fluid motion as he jumps up and makes an Iaido attack on the thing's legs. Watery sphere's would appear around him and coat him, before hopefully smashing the thing int he face. "Bizen Boat!" Why yes, he's using Draw Out, since he has Iaido he's got a 25% chance of his blade not breaking, anyway...
  193. [16:18:17] <Lyle> 2d6+6 hit;32 damage, plus roll
  194. [16:18:18] <DiceMaid-9001> Lyle, hit: 14 [2d6=2,6]; damage, plus roll: 32 []
  195. [16:18:48] <@Giantree> 1d4 so, on 1 the blade survives?
  196. [16:18:50] <DiceMaid-9001> Giantree, so, on 1 the blade survives?: 4 [1d4=4]
  197. [16:19:18] * Lyle 's blade completely shatters. "Well, shit."
  198. [16:19:30] <@Giantree> ...  An Undine emerges from the blade and waves farewell with a thankful smile.
  199. [16:19:34] * Briar his holding the mantis claw in one hand
  200. [16:19:48] <Briar> "Um...Wow. Do you need this?"
  201. [16:19:56] <@Giantree> The Mantis has been approaching Briar as often as it could be, still stomping ahead.
  202. [16:19:58] <@Giantree> 1d6 Naida?
  203. [16:19:59] <DiceMaid-9001> Giantree, Naida?: 2 [1d6=2]
  204. [16:20:02] <Naida> 1d6
  205. [16:20:03] <DiceMaid-9001> Naida, 1d6: 5 [1d6=5]
  206. [16:20:05] <@Giantree> Go for it.
  207. [16:20:08] <Lyle> "Sure.  Toss it over."
  208. [16:20:11] * Briar kicks the claw towards Lyle
  209. [16:20:20] <Naida> 2d6+56 BURN RAY!
  210. [16:20:21] <DiceMaid-9001> Naida, BURN RAY!: 63 [2d6=3,4]
  211. [16:20:46] * Lyle catches, looks it over a bit. "Well, it's close enough to a blade..."
  212. [16:21:27] <Naida> Naida begins chating again
  213. [16:21:30] <@Giantree> The mantis doesn't take that very well, as holes melt through its armor... or something along those lines.
  214. [16:21:32] <Naida> chanting even
  215. [16:21:59] <@Giantree> Briar and Lyle being next to each other, though, causes the thing to not discriminate anymore.  It swipes to get its claw back.
  216. [16:22:03] <@Giantree> 2d6+6 Lyle then!
  217. [16:22:04] <DiceMaid-9001> Giantree, Lyle then!: 12 [2d6=4,2]
  218. [16:22:17] <Lyle> My Eva is 12 :3
  219. [16:22:33] <@Giantree> Well, ties HAVE been hitting.  Foooortunately that's only 14 damage since it's disarmed.
  220. [16:23:15] <@Giantree> It still presumably grabs its blade back unless it was EQUIPPED.  And... it's an odd shape to be used as a Katana, really.  But you never know with improvised weaponry.
  221. [16:23:22] * Lyle would attempt to parry its claw with...its claw, but unfortunately he hasn't gotten used to using a blade curved so badly, so the parry slips.
  222. [16:23:33] <@Giantree> ... But is Breezy a bad enough midget to stop it?
  223. [16:24:03] <Breezy> 2d6+7
  224. [16:24:04] <DiceMaid-9001> Breezy, 2d6+7: 14 [2d6=4,3]
  225. [16:24:11] <@Giantree> The answer is 'yeah, pretty much.'
  226. [16:24:31] * Lyle would ignore the blow, though, it didn't do all that much.
  227. [16:25:01] <Lyle> (8 Damage after ARM applied, after all.)
  228. [16:25:15] <@Giantree> (Being clawless is suffering ;_;)
  229. [16:25:30] <Breezy> "Hit me again, I dare you. You're too fat and slow, that's why I can do... This!" Breezy's arm turns like a wheel on a car(t), spinning around in a comical windup before throwing a little fist worth 39 damage!
  230. [16:25:54] <@Giantree> A little fist strong enough to BLOW OFF ITS ARMS AND LEGS.
  231. [16:26:09] <@Giantree> ... Just kidding, it actually bursts into JRPG-esque explosions and disappears with a loud screech.
  232. [16:26:28] <@Giantree> Its claw falls to the ground too.
  233. [16:26:33] <@Giantree> Way to go!
  234. [16:26:44] * Terse assumes a victory pose!
  235. [16:26:45] * Lyle fistpumps.
  236. [16:27:05] <Briar> "That, was...too close."
  237. [16:27:09] * Naida dusts herself off
  238. [16:27:09] <Breezy> "That bug shoulda gone on a diet before it decided to box with me!"
  239. [16:27:12] <Terse> "That was easy."
  240. [16:27:28] <Lucia> "Excellent work."
  241. [16:27:44] * Terse flips his knife around, very visibly, and...somehow it's gone.  Weird, where'd it go?
  242. [16:27:57] <@Giantree> And a rope mysteriously descends from the hole in the ceiling, with a big "EXIT" marker next to it.
  243. [16:28:19] * Briar goes to the corpse of the ant and kicks it.
  244. [16:28:48] <@Giantree> That's silly, bosses don't leave corpses.
  245. [16:29:00] * Lyle checks out the claw he has now, looking it over. He gives an experimental toss with it, the thing returning to him like a boomerang. "Good enough." He'd catch it.
  246. [16:29:12] * Briar kicks the pile of dust it left on the ground
  247. [16:30:29] * Briar then moves to the rope and climbs up it.
  248. [16:30:59] <Briar> 2d6+3 Climbs up the rope
  249. [16:31:00] <DiceMaid-9001> Briar, Climbs up the rope: 9 [2d6=1,5]
  250. [16:31:52] * Lyle would go ahead and climb up the thing.
  251. [16:31:57] * Naida uses intuitive magic and LEVITATES out of the hole
  252. [16:31:58] <@Giantree> That's okay, it's really not a difficult rope to climb.  In fact, there's a ladder set down right next to it too just for maximum redundancy.
  253. [16:32:06] <Lyle> 2d6+4 Ranks in Athletics work, right?
  254. [16:32:07] <DiceMaid-9001> Lyle, Ranks in Athletics work, right?: 12 [2d6=6,2]
  255. [16:32:16] <@Giantree> Apparently they do!
  256. [16:32:19] <Briar> "What the, this isn't the forest."
  257. [16:32:32] <@Giantree> Outside of the whole is a blank, white background.  With a wooden signpost in the ground.
  258. [16:32:40] <@Giantree> "COMING SOON," it says.
  259. [16:32:47] * Lyle stare.
  260. [16:38:59] * Briar adjusts his hat. Where are we...you know what, I like it better in the hole.
  261. [16:41:27] * Briar takes the Coming Soon sign, tosses it down the hole, then slides down the rope.
