  1. [12:01:48] <Kain> LAST TIME... ON DRAGON BALL Z. Frieza unleashed an incredible attack, declaring the Planet Gaia would have only five minutes before its core was destroyed. Can Lenore-ku defeat him in time?
  2. [12:02:38] <Kain> I mean
  3. [12:02:59] * @Lenore straightens her crab hairpin. "It's all or nothing time! I call upon thee in the land of th- BLAH BLAH BLAH INDIGNATION!"
  4. [12:03:20] * Natalie waits for someone to say "WHAT THE HECK IS THAT?"
  5. [12:03:41] * Celina was going to but fuck you tree
  6. [12:03:44] <Kain> You guys are actually in some ancient ruin which for some reason has technology way beyond the understanding of most of you except Theta because he's -special- and a bunch of rats are hunting a magic box while you search for a crystal swallowed by an Ogre. LOVELY.
  7. [12:04:12] <Natalie> ... But we can do the other one as a sidequest later, right?
  8. [12:04:18] <Kain> Probably yes
  9. [12:04:26] <Kain> NOW
  10. [12:04:29] <Kain> Back in the console room
  11. [12:04:52] <Kain> You guys have a few directions you can go. There's the way you came in, and then two doors heading different directions to the north.
  12. [12:05:11] <Kain> You will have to forgive me because this will NOT be exactly like oeilvert in FFIX because my memory is shaky
  13. [12:05:11] * Theta looks to the two doors thoughtfully. "Hrrrm."
  14. [12:05:18] <Celina> (that's fine)
  15. [12:05:29] <Celina> "So, our first priority is to find the ogre, right?"
  16. [12:05:30] <Natalie> (I totally only remember ark's room)
  17. [12:05:31] <Theta> "I suppose any choice is as good as any other considering we know just our quarry, not the lay of this place."
  18. [12:05:32] * Amaryllis approaches Theta next to the weird computer device gadget gizmo thing. "Does the machine hold records of who once lived here?" She then turns to gaze at the doors Theta looks toward.
  19. [12:05:33] <Kain> Riese came out of the northwest door, as opposed to the northeast
  20. [12:05:46] <Kain> But she left the way you guys came
  21. [12:06:02] <Theta> "It may indeed, but I doubt the console is going anywhere for the current.  This ogre, however, is."
  22. [12:06:03] * Celina is leaning towards northeast.
  23. [12:06:24] * @Lenore fiddle fiddles with her hands.
  24. [12:06:58] * Natalie wanders back in to Celina's question and nods a couple times in a mock-philosophical position, chin resting on a fist. "That's right! They're supposed to be big, aren't they? You'd think they'd be easier to find. Nnnn."
  25. [12:07:37] <Theta> (Northeast is fine here.)
  26. [12:08:00] <Celina> "Well, if Miss Riese came from one direction and hadn't seen it in a while..."
  27. [12:08:13] <Natalie> "Exactly!"
  28. [12:08:18] * Natalie skips off ahead to the northeast.
  29. [12:08:20] <Celina> "Then let's go this way."
  30. [12:08:45] * Celina follows after Natalie who totally stole her thunder
  31. [12:08:55] <Natalie> Tilde.
  32. [12:08:56] * Amaryllis nods and follows, with a last look at the console as she shuffles northeast.
  33. [12:10:08] <Kain> OKAY
  34. [12:10:57] <Kain> You all shuffle northeast. This door leads into an incredibly open and spacious room... but most of it lacking a floor. In fact, the only thing that seems to be IN this room is a massively long bridge that leads to a door on the other side of the room. And there's maybe something at the middle of the bridge.
  35. [12:11:33] * Natalie totally keeps walking forward without a second thought.
  36. [12:11:40] <Kain> Unlit torches line the sides of the bridges for some reason.
  37. [12:11:46] * Celina snags onto Natalie.
  38. [12:11:46] * Amaryllis gazes at the middle of the bridge.
  39. [12:11:54] <Celina> "No."
  40. [12:11:59] <Natalie> "Nnnn."
  41. [12:12:01] <Kain> You can't really tell from here but it looks like another machine
  42. [12:12:11] <Natalie> "But maybe that's an ogre over there?"
  43. [12:12:14] * Natalie squiiiiiiiiints.
  44. [12:12:28] <Amaryllis> "Theta, do you recognize that?" Ammy points toward the machine thingy
  45. [12:13:04] <Kain> Can't say he does, it's a decent ways off too. You'd have to get closer.
  46. [12:13:06] * Theta looks over it curiously. "Pretty dark in here, hm."
  47. [12:13:23] * @Lenore keeps an eye out for trouble.
  48. [12:13:28] * Natalie makes it double.
  49. [12:13:28] <Celina> "Perhaps if we shed some light on the subject?"
  50. [12:13:33] * Celina eyes the torches.
  51. [12:14:09] <Kain> Everyone inside?
  52. [12:14:15] <Kain> Okay, Celina, give me an awareness check.
  53. [12:14:21] <Amaryllis> "It may be a trap." Ammy pulls out her lantern instead, getting ready to light it.
  54. [12:14:32] <Theta> "Well, no magic here, would need a flint and steel or something to spark them."
  55. [12:15:02] <Celina> 2d6+2
  56. [12:15:02] <DiceMaid-9001> Celina, 2d6+2: 9 [2d6=1,6]
  57. [12:15:23] <Kain> Nothing out of place to your eyes.
  58. [12:15:32] <Kain> OKAY
  59. [12:15:37] <Natalie> "Spark, hm?"  Nod, nod.  "Well maybe if we used my SPECIAL ARTS... er... maybe not."
  60. [12:15:39] <Kain> From behind you
  61. [12:15:48] <Celina> "There are things that can be done that aren't magic, you know."
  62. [12:15:50] <Kain> You all hear a loud THUNK as something drops from the ceiling.
  63. [12:15:51] * Celina smuuuugs
  64. [12:16:09] * @Lenore whips around, rubbing her hands kind of nervously. "Huh?"
  65. [12:16:16] * Amaryllis whirls around mid-fumbling in her bag for something to light the lantern with.
  66. [12:16:18] * Natalie puts hands at her hips without turning. "It's an ogre, isn't it?"
  67. [12:16:24] <Theta> "Well that hardly sounded pleasent," he turns casually.
  68. [12:17:18] <Kain> And as you turn, Celina and Natalie instantly recognize the large stone form of an Epitaph, though instead of a man, this one seems to have a more demon-like face. It suddenly seems to stretch and crack, expanding sideways and blocking the entire way back, and numerous little skittering centipede like feet bust out of its front as it starts edging forward.
  69. [12:17:45] <Kain> Combat: Epitaph Demon Wall
  70. [12:17:46] <Natalie> (GOD DAMNIT)
  71. [12:18:18] <Kain> Five turns until Party KO
  72. [12:18:20] * Natalie slowly... glances behind, yeah. "Are you kidding? Another one o- oops"
  73. [12:18:29] <Celina> "Fffffffff."
  74. [12:18:38] <Celina> (WHO HAS THE SOFT)
  75. [12:18:41] <Theta> (You know, this would be a hilarious application of Back Alley, but I feel you would murder me.)
  76. [12:19:00] <Amaryllis> (Not me. Pretty sure it was Theta?)
  77. [12:19:07] <Natalie> (I'm pretty sure it's schrödinger's soft, we all have it)
  78. [12:19:09] <Theta> (I do not either.)
  79. [12:20:03] <Kaingaskhan> The creature bears down on you, showing no signs of stopping for anything. You realize the door behind you on the other end of the bridge is a lot closer than you would like... you don't even know if it's unlocked. Uh oh.
  80. [12:20:09] <Kaingaskhan> PLAYER TURNS
  81. [12:20:29] <Amaryllis> (teamwork y/n?)
  82. [12:20:35] <Natalie> "Uhhh err I don't even have time to think of names, do I?  A-Ammy, let's go!"
  83. [12:20:37] <Natalie> (big y)
  84. [12:20:42] * @Lenore nudges up to Mr. Prickles.
  85. [12:20:50] * Theta thinks for a moment.
  86. [12:20:55] <Kaingaskhan> Prickles clings to Lenore's crabmono.
  87. [12:21:01] * Amaryllis nods and draws her sword. (held tiil nat)
  88. [12:21:03] <Celina> (seriously if no one has the soft I'm going to say I have it and use it :I)
  89. [12:21:11] <Amaryllis> (go for it)
  90. [12:21:28] <Natalie> (how do we know if it'll even work)
  91. [12:21:31] <Amaryllis> (assuming Celina knows that epitaphs are vulnerable to them...?)
  92. [12:21:34] <Celina> (we don't)
  93. [12:21:38] <Theta> "Well, I believe now would a wonderful time to inspect that machine.  Hastily.  Before we all perish."
  94. [12:22:03] <Natalie> "Nnn, yeah, go, go!  We can hold it off!  ... I think that's how it's supposed to work."
  95. [12:22:10] <Celina> "Do you?"
  96. [12:22:19] <Celina> "Well, I guess we'll see."
  97. [12:23:23] <Theta> (Hey, worse comes to worse I could TRY to push it back or something but <:3c)
  98. [12:23:35] <Kaingaskhan> So yeah
  99. [12:23:39] <Kaingaskhan> what're you guys doing?
  100. [12:23:55] <Amaryllis> (I held, waiting for Nat's turn, so it's Celina up now)
  101. [12:24:21] <@Lenore> "M-Mr. Prickles! L-let's...strike it...w-with justice!  Y-yeah..."
  102. [12:24:33] * @Lenore is holding until Mr. Prickles for TEAMWORK.
  103. [12:24:40] <Theta> Theta is booking it across the bridge to see if this device in the center of it would be of ANY noticable assistance at the current.
  104. [12:24:41] <Celina> 2d6+3 I guess I'm just going to hit it with my ribbon yes
  105. [12:24:42] <DiceMaid-9001> Celina, I guess I'm just going to hit it with my ribbon yes: 7 [2d6=1,3]
  106. [12:24:45] <Celina> and that
  107. [12:24:49] <Celina> probably misses
  108. [12:24:52] <Kaingaskhan> Squibble squibble! You're... not actually quite sure what he just said.
  109. [12:25:05] <Kaingaskhan> yes unfortunately
  110. [12:25:16] <Kaingaskhan> Theta - it seems to be some sort of..
  111. [12:25:19] <Kaingaskhan> hologram projector?
  112. [12:25:48] <Kaingaskhan> And there's a big round glowy stone half-sunk into a podium.
  113. [12:25:51] <Amaryllis> "Theta, can you not delay its advance with your...talants?"
  114. [12:26:27] <Natalie> (think it's us?)
  115. [12:26:41] <Kaingaskhan> Go go nammy
  116. [12:26:45] <Amaryllis> 2d6+3 teamwork!
  117. [12:26:46] <DiceMaid-9001> Amaryllis, teamwork!: 5 [2d6=1,1]
  118. [12:26:51] <Natalie> 2d6+2 oh wow
  119. [12:26:51] <Kaingaskhan> then pricklenore
  120. [12:26:52] <DiceMaid-9001> Natalie, oh wow: 13 [2d6=6,5]
  121. [12:26:58] <Theta> "I could attempt to, but utilizing what we have first seemed a logical approach!"
  122. [12:27:00] <Natalie> ... please use both rerolls on that
  123. [12:27:01] <Amaryllis> 2d6+3 nope nope nope using blade to reroll
  124. [12:27:02] <DiceMaid-9001> Amaryllis, nope nope nope using blade to reroll: 10 [2d6=6,1]
  125. [12:27:11] <Kaingaskhan> That... is a hit!
  126. [12:27:20] <Natalie> (Take the teamwork reroll on the 1 to see if it can crit?)
  127. [12:27:21] <Kaingaskhan> synchronized!
  128. [12:27:31] <@Lenore> 2d6+1 BURNING JUSTICE
  129. [12:27:31] <DiceMaid-9001> Lenore, BURNING JUSTICE: 9 [2d6=2,6]
  130. [12:27:31] <Amaryllis> 1d6 on the 1
  131. [12:27:31] <DiceMaid-9001> Amaryllis, on the 1: 5 [1d6=5]
  132. [12:27:37] <Theta> "It's...a projector, maybe.  Has a glowy stone in it.  Probably worth investigating but -!"
  133. [12:27:39] <Kaingaskhan> perfect synchro
  134. [12:27:39] <Natalie> D-D-DOUBLE SYNCHRO
  135. [12:27:42] <Amaryllis> (holy fuck do we get some sort of bonus for identical rolls? :>)
  136. [12:27:42] <Kaingaskhan> not that that does anything
  137. [12:27:44] <Natalie> Too bad that doesn't have any- ^
  138. [12:27:45] <Amaryllis> (aww)
  139. [12:27:54] <Amaryllis> 39 damage!
  140. [12:27:55] <Kaingaskhan> One sec Lenore
  141. [12:28:00] <@Lenore> (just rolling mine ahead of time because I'm getting ahead of myself yeah)
  142. [12:28:03] <Kaingaskhan> And fluff your attacks you two
  143. [12:28:10] * Natalie pulls an Ayla and jumps for a boost, thunder tackle etc etc... only there's no thunder.
  144. [12:28:20] <Natalie> Also uhh... 19 damage.
  145. [12:28:32] <Natalie> But disabled combat abilities and other fun things!
  146. [12:28:32] <Kaingaskhan> 2d6+2 Prickles
  147. [12:28:33] <DiceMaid-9001> Kaingaskhan, Prickles: 8 [2d6=4,2]
  148. [12:28:34] * Amaryllis boosts Nat in the air before charging the demon wall. (flinging it in the air seems kinda nonsensical unfortunately!)
  149. [12:28:43] <@Lenore> SYNCHRO
  150. [12:28:43] <Kaingaskhan> Oh wow, Lenore and Prickles pull off a teamwork too
  151. [12:28:59] * Amaryllis synchronizes her sword slice with Nat's kick!
  152. [12:29:05] <Natalie> SLAM!
  153. [12:29:51] <Kaingaskhan> Prickles dashes up to the demon wall and starts windmilling it, making hollow wooden BONKBONKBONK noises with accompanying cute stars and speed lines
  154. [12:30:01] <Kaingaskhan> And yes, demon epitaph has Large
  155. [12:30:05] <Kaingaskhan> immune to knockback etc
  156. [12:30:07] <@Lenore> 20 Damage.  Lenore jumps up to it and kicks it in the face!  ...and then screws up landing and sort of falls on her but cutely.
  157. [12:30:25] <Natalie> Falls on her, but cutely!
  158. [12:30:31] <Kaingaskhan> Prickles does 16!
  159. [12:30:36] <@Lenore> (...*falls on her butt)
  160. [12:30:58] <Kaingaskhan> Counter-copy
  161. [12:31:12] <Kaingaskhan> The Epitaph's tablet suddenly cracks open!
  162. [12:31:16] <Kaingaskhan> And out comes...
  163. [12:31:22] <Kaingaskhan> a gigantic Cactuar in shining armor!
  164. [12:31:34] <Kaingaskhan> Giant Copy-Prickles
  165. [12:31:36] <Natalie> "... Thaaaat's not good."
  166. [12:31:45] <Kaingaskhan> Prickles: "O-oh dear..."
  167. [12:31:48] <Celina> (does it have a moustache)
  168. [12:31:52] <@Lenore> "Uh, whoa."
  169. [12:31:53] <Celina> (tell me it does)
  170. [12:31:55] <Kaingaskhan> The best mustache.
  171. [12:32:02] <Celina> :D
  172. [12:32:08] <Natalie> "Mr. Iota!  Can you do something yet?"
  173. [12:32:09] <Amaryllis> D: you mean
  174. [12:32:19] <Kaingaskhan> Theta, doing anything standardy?
  175. [12:32:37] <Theta> (Oh I figured that would consume my whole turn, okay then.)
  176. [12:32:51] <Celina> (no, jumbo cactaur is pretty awesome)
  177. [12:32:58] <Theta> Theta...attempts to raise a column of stone in the path of this wall, to slow its progress.
  178. [12:33:48] <Kaingaskhan> hmm, no associated attack?
  179. [12:33:53] <Kaingaskhan> Roll me force then.
  180. [12:34:01] <Amaryllis> "Don't lose focus Nat, the wall's still our main target." Ammy speaks in a rough whisper to Nat as the girl lands.
  181. [12:34:02] <Kaingaskhan> Orrr nature maybe? I'm not sure
  182. [12:34:21] <Theta> (Well, Back Alley describes DOING this but it's for 'you use escape')
  183. [12:34:22] <Kaingaskhan> Let's go with nature
  184. [12:34:27] <Theta> 2d6+3
  185. [12:34:28] <DiceMaid-9001> Theta, 2d6+3: 14 [2d6=6,5]
  186. [12:34:28] <Kaingaskhan> (Oh, hm)
  187. [12:34:34] <Theta> (fffffff-)
  188. [12:34:40] * Natalie nods and leaps back, reforming a combat stance.
  189. [12:34:40] <@Lenore> (haha oh wow)
  190. [12:34:47] <Kaingaskhan> The bridge reforms itself to lodge a pillar in front of the epitaph! Bonk!
  191. [12:35:00] <Theta> (Back Alley: The Geomancer concentrates and moves walls and buildings, creating doorways where there was nothing before, and shifting the streets and passways around the party. They are instantly seperated from their foes who vanish in the urban maze. This Geotrance ability instantly removes the party from combat, much like Escape. )
  192. [12:35:23] <Kaingaskhan> Are you TRYING to escape?
  193. [12:35:24] * @Lenore gets into a really clumsy battle stance. U-uguu
  194. [12:35:52] * Natalie leaves stance to move over to Lenore and forcibly adjust her stance until it looks COOL AND BADASS, then reforms her own like nothing happened.
  195. [12:36:03] <Theta> (no, just trying to slow it down a little)
  196. [12:36:07] <Kaingaskhan> Okay
  197. [12:36:18] <Kaingaskhan> It struggles a moment, trying to press on regardless, and the pillar starts to give a bit but doesn't break. The jumbo-fake cactuar moves forward though
  198. [12:36:39] <Theta> "I don't believe it will hold long!"
  199. [12:36:42] <@Lenore> "A-ah, it's coming!  L-let's attack again!"
  200. [12:37:02] <@Lenore> "Keep trying things, Theta!"
  201. [12:37:07] <Kaingaskhan> Cover on Demon Epitaph, aaand
  202. [12:37:17] <Kaingaskhan> It begins shooting several holy-tipped needles at...
  203. [12:37:19] <Kaingaskhan> 1d5
  204. [12:37:20] <DiceMaid-9001> Kaingaskhan, 1d5: 5 [1d5=5]
  205. [12:37:24] <Kaingaskhan> Theta!
  206. [12:37:40] <Kaingaskhan> 2d6+4 Orlandeau's Strike
  207. [12:37:40] <DiceMaid-9001> Kaingaskhan, Orlandeau's Strike: 12 [2d6=5,3]
  208. [12:37:46] <Amaryllis> (ohshit)
  209. [12:37:50] <Natalie> (ow shizzle)
  210. [12:37:53] <@Lenore> (fffffffffffuuuuuuuuuuuu)
  211. [12:38:18] <Theta> (Well yes that is a hit.)
  212. [12:38:41] <Kaingaskhan> 62 holy m.arm damage
  213. [12:39:17] <Kaingaskhan> Player turns!
  214. [12:39:20] <Theta> He's still up, but that was a mean blow.
  215. [12:39:22] <Theta> "I say!"
  216. [12:39:23] <Kaingaskhan> Five turns until the players are KO'd!
  217. [12:39:33] <Kaingaskhan> Seems Theta's delay did help there
  218. [12:39:34] <Natalie> (1,1Wasn't it five turns last turn?)
  219. [12:39:34] <Amaryllis> "...Nevermind, this imitation shall be the end of us if we fail to act quickly, milady!" Ammy turns toward it, her voice rising.
  220. [12:39:35] <@Lenore> (haha shit)
  221. [12:39:38] <Natalie> (... oh okay)
  222. [12:39:44] <Kaingaskhan> (FIVE MINUTES)
  223. [12:39:52] <Natalie> "Another one?"
  224. [12:39:57] <@Lenore> (TIME BOMB SET GET OUT FAST)
  225. [12:39:57] <Kaingaskhan> (UNTIL THIS PLANET EXPLODES)
  226. [12:39:59] <Natalie> BOOST!
  227. [12:40:03] <Amaryllis> "Yes."
  228. [12:40:31] <Theta> "I believe this TERRIBLY DECORED WALL truely wishes the worst of us, well have at thee!" He draws his sword.
  229. [12:40:34] <Amaryllis> (held, Nat, teamwork, etc)
  230. [12:40:34] <Natalie> "Alright, let's do that one!  You start off..."
  231. [12:41:32] <Celina> 2d6+3 meanwhile, fire breathing
  232. [12:41:33] <DiceMaid-9001> Celina, meanwhile, fire breathing: 12 [2d6=6,3]
  233. [12:41:48] <Celina> that should hit both cactuar and wall
  234. [12:41:49] <Celina> right

  236. [12:42:27] * @Lenore readies herself alongside Mr. Prickles again.
  237. [12:43:00] <Kaingaskhan> Hits both

  240. [12:43:38] <Celina> and
  241. [12:43:48] <Celina> 2d6+2 opposed force for blind
  242. [12:43:48] <DiceMaid-9001> Celina, opposed force for blind: 13 [2d6=6,5]
  243. [12:43:51] <Celina> yesss
  244. [12:44:35] <Kaingaskhan> 2d6+9;2d6+5 why did I make their force so good again? Well hopefully low rolls, not that blind matters much for demon wall if that makes you feel any better
  245. [12:44:36] <DiceMaid-9001> Kaingaskhan, 2d6+9: 14 [2d6=2,3]; why did I make their force so good again? Well hopefully low rolls, not that blind matters much for demon wall if that makes you feel any better: 13 [2d6=2,6]
  246. [12:44:56] <Kaingaskhan> You blind Copy Prickles!

  258. [12:45:55] * Amaryllis tries to feint the copy with her blade but swings wild, leaving Nat no opening to attack!
  259. [12:45:55] <Kaingaskhan> 2d6+2
  260. [12:45:55] <DiceMaid-9001> Kaingaskhan, 2d6+2: 7 [2d6=2,3]
  261. [12:46:05] * Natalie tries a really risky maneuver to get under the jumbo cactus, but it doesn't work at all.
  262. [12:46:14] <Kaingaskhan> Prickles rushes forward but only gets tangled in Lenore's feet!
  263. [12:46:17] * @Lenore clumsily trips right in front of Mr. Prickles
  264. [12:46:18] <Kaingaskhan> Oh dear.
  265. [12:46:23] <Kaingaskhan> Theta!
  266. [12:46:25] <Celina> "Uh."
  267. [12:46:40] <Theta> Theta chucks a bolt of lightning at this sonovabitch
  268. [12:46:40] <Theta> 2d6+2

  270. [12:46:50] <Kaingaskhan> Yup!
  271. [12:47:00] <Theta> 31 electirc arms damage
  272. [12:47:20] <Kaingaskhan> Mhm, okay
  273. [12:47:30] <Kaingaskhan> Enemy turns

  282. [12:48:16] <Celina> my avd is nine now herp
  283. [12:48:26] <Amaryllis> (Player wins ties anyway, right?)
  284. [12:48:27] <Kaingaskhan> Four turns until the players are KO'd
  285. [12:48:33] <Celina> (attacker wins ties)
  286. [12:48:36] <Natalie> (nah, it's attacker)
  287. [12:48:59] <Celina> 2d6+3 lightning breath

  295. [12:49:43] <Kaingaskhan> Both are Sealed
  296. [12:49:48] <Amaryllis> (gonna darkside, so forgoing teamwork this round to try to get damage in)
  297. [12:49:49] <@Lenore> (HOHO)
  298. [12:49:57] <Natalie> (Yeah, screw teamwork this round)
  299. [12:50:02] <Amaryllis> 2d6+3 darkside at the copy
  300. [12:50:02] <DiceMaid-9001> Amaryllis, darkside at the copy: 11 [2d6=5,3]
  301. [12:50:06] <Kaingaskhan> WHAM
  302. [12:50:32] <Celina> "As I was saying," Celina says, a bit smugly, "There are powers we possess that aren't what one would call 'magic'."
  303. [12:50:40] * Amaryllis swishes her sword off to the side, gathering shadow energy in it before charging in and thrusting it in a chink in the copy's armor.
  304. [12:51:03] * Natalie leans to the rat and points at the shadow-attack. "Like that?"
  305. [12:51:04] <Amaryllis> 78 shadow arm damage!
  306. [12:51:27] <Kaingaskhan> Copy-Prickles disintigrates in a blast of foul-smelling granite dust!
  307. [12:51:39] <Amaryllis> "Now is not the time for such petty competitions, milady." Ammy pulls her sword back.
  308. [12:51:42] <Natalie> "Okay!  Let's go go go!"
  309. [12:51:50] <Kaingaskhan> The real Prickles edges away from Ammy. :<
  310. [12:51:59] <Natalie> 2d6+3 Let's kick the crap out of that wall!
  311. [12:51:59] <DiceMaid-9001> Natalie, Let's kick the crap out of that wall!: 11 [2d6=4,4]
  312. [12:52:08] <Kaingaskhan> COME ON AND SLAM
  313. [12:52:09] <Celina> "Actually, Miss Amaryllis, that was exactly what I was talking about."
  314. [12:52:21] <Natalie> That's 16 AND ANOTHER BOOST BECAUSE IT'S INSTANT
  315. [12:52:31] <@Lenore> 2d6+1 "BLITZ KICK!"
  316. [12:52:32] <DiceMaid-9001> Lenore, "BLITZ KICK!": 4 [2d6=2,1]
  317. [12:52:36] * Natalie literally just kicks it once, it's really boring.
  318. [12:52:37] <@Lenore> whiff.
  319. [12:52:41] <Kaingaskhan> 2d6+2 Prickles
  320. [12:52:41] <DiceMaid-9001> Kaingaskhan, Prickles: 9 [2d6=2,5]
  321. [12:52:53] <Kaingaskhan> Prickles actually hits!
  322. [12:52:57] <Theta> "I believe your staff would serve you better, Lenore."
  323. [12:53:06] <@Lenore> (Actually it wouldn't)
  324. [12:53:21] <@Lenore> "It's in my hat, and I can't access my hat!"
  325. [12:53:43] <Theta> 2d6+2 another pewpew when it comes around
  326. [12:53:44] <DiceMaid-9001> Theta, another pewpew when it comes around: 8 [2d6=3,3]
  327. [12:53:45] <Kaingaskhan> 17 damage from prickles
  328. [12:53:46] <Amaryllis> "It matters not who of us wields such powers Lady Celina, as they serve to help us all at this moment." Ammy readies her sword again now that the Epitaph is exposed.
  329. [12:53:46] <@Lenore> (Her staff is Tier 1 and uses Mnd, and her Mind is lower than her Pwr, so unarmed attacks are actually better)
  330. [12:53:48] <Kaingaskhan> hit!
  331. [12:54:02] <Theta> 30 damage
  332. [12:54:19] <Kaingaskhan> The Demon Epitaph tries to make a copy...
  333. [12:54:23] <Kaingaskhan> but can't because it's Sealed!
  334. [12:54:29] <Celina> (YES)
  335. [12:54:32] <Amaryllis> (aawwwww yeeeeaaaaa)
  336. [12:54:35] <@Lenore> (WOOHOO)
  337. [12:54:41] * Natalie smugs, herself. "Having trouble?"
  338. [12:54:44] <Kaingaskhan> Instead it just advances forward and its arm breaks off its tablet, trying to swipe at someone.
  339. [12:54:53] <Kaingaskhan> 2d6+3 that someone is Nat
  340. [12:54:53] <DiceMaid-9001> Kaingaskhan, that someone is Nat: 7 [2d6=3,1]
  341. [12:54:56] <Natalie> NOPE
  342. [12:55:06] <Kaingaskhan> Three rounds until Player KO
  343. [12:55:13] * Natalie backflips and lands. "Good answer!"
  344. [12:55:14] <Kaingaskhan> That wall behind you guys is getting closer and closer
  345. [12:55:33] <Celina> "Hmm, I wonder."
  346. [12:55:41] <Celina> "It doesn't look very mobile, does it?"
  347. [12:55:57] <Celina> "...Well, never mind."
  348. [12:55:58] * Amaryllis steps back a few paces and swishes her sword to the side again, but this time she stands still and points it like a cannon at the wall.
  349. [12:56:04] <@Lenore> "It's mobile enough t-to crush us, isn't it?"
  350. [12:56:05] <Amaryllis> 2d6+3 darkside! nightsword!
  351. [12:56:05] <DiceMaid-9001> Amaryllis, darkside! nightsword!: 8 [2d6=2,3]
  352. [12:56:05] <Natalie> Natty headtilts.  "Were you going to say we should ride it?"
  353. [12:56:17] <Kaingaskhan> Barely a hit!
  354. [12:56:24] <Celina> "No, but if you were to create an obstacle it couldn't push over..."
  355. [12:56:30] * Celina takes to the skies!
  356. [12:56:42] <Natalie> "Like a..."  Nat seems to have an idea but shakes it off.
  357. [12:56:44] <Amaryllis> 75 shadow arm! gib numbers for hp recover (50%)
  358. [12:57:04] <Kaingaskhan> You recover 30
  359. [12:57:24] <Kaingaskhan> OW that darkside seems like it hurt. Not more effective, but just a lot of damage.
  360. [12:57:53] <Kaingaskhan> Mr. Prickles...
  361. [12:57:59] <Kaingaskhan> Picks up a rock!
  362. [12:58:04] * Amaryllis shoots a SHADOW LASER from the tip of her sword, the energy looping back into her as it strikes the wall.
  363. [12:58:04] <Kaingaskhan> He found a rock.
  364. [12:58:07] <Natalie> (Oh ho, my attacks are just for building up chain points then)
  365. [12:58:32] * @Lenore attempts to kick this thing yet again!
  366. [12:58:35] <Kaingaskhan> 1d6 Throw Stone
  367. [12:58:35] <DiceMaid-9001> Kaingaskhan, Throw Stone: 6 [1d6=6]
  368. [12:58:45] <Kaingaskhan> He tosses the rock.
  369. [12:59:02] <Kaingaskhan> 6 arm ignoring damage and the Demon Epitaph is stunned!
  370. [12:59:03] <Kaingaskhan> Fundaments is
  371. [12:59:04] <Kaingaskhan> weird
  372. [12:59:07] <@Lenore> 2d6+1 "T-take this!"
  373. [12:59:08] <DiceMaid-9001> Lenore, "T-take this!": 9 [2d6=5,3]
  374. [12:59:13] <Natalie> HYPE
  375. [12:59:24] <Kaingaskhan> Hit!
  376. [12:59:32] <Natalie> 2d6+4 "I can't just come up with names on the spot, you know!"
  377. [12:59:34] <DiceMaid-9001> Natalie, "I can't just come up with names on the spot, you know!": 15 [2d6=5,6]
  378. [12:59:43] * @Lenore gives that thing her best kick before falling over again on her butt. Uuuu.
  379. [12:59:44] <Kaingaskhan> Hit!
  380. [12:59:50] <Natalie> A measly 19 from nacchan.
  381. [12:59:51] <@Lenore> 20 ARM damage
  382. [12:59:54] <Kaingaskhan> Prickles: "A-are you alright Miss Lenore?"
  383. [12:59:55] <Natalie> ... Also ARM.
  384. [13:00:20] * Natalie just leaps and drop-kicks it, but she's not wearing the best kicking-shoes.
  385. [13:00:34] * Theta flicks his sword again for another bolt of electricty. Just sorta chillin' back there.
  386. [13:00:36] <Theta> 2d6+2
  387. [13:00:36] <DiceMaid-9001> Theta, 2d6+2: 8 [2d6=3,3]
  388. [13:00:39] <Kaingaskhan> yep
  389. [13:00:42] <Theta> and another 30 damage
  390. [13:00:54] <Kaingaskhan> noted
  391. [13:01:03] <Kaingaskhan> Epitaph tries to make a copy... still Sealed
  392. [13:01:08] <Kaingaskhan> 2d6+3 swipe at Ammy
  393. [13:01:09] <DiceMaid-9001> Kaingaskhan, swipe at Ammy: 8 [2d6=2,3]
  394. [13:01:14] <Amaryllis> lol what am evade
  395. [13:01:24] <Kaingaskhan> 37 arm damage
  396. [13:01:25] <Kaingaskhan> bonk
  397. [13:01:30] <Kaingaskhan> It moves forward
  398. [13:01:33] <Kaingaskhan> Oh wait
  399. [13:01:35] <Kaingaskhan> what am I doing
  400. [13:01:38] <Kaingaskhan> you don't take that damage
  401. [13:01:40] <Celina> it's stunned
  402. [13:01:42] <Kaingaskhan> it's stunned because prickles
  403. [13:01:47] <Amaryllis> :D
  404. [13:02:02] <Celina> hey guys mind if I go first
  405. [13:02:04] <Amaryllis> (does it still advance the counter?)
  406. [13:02:07] <Amaryllis> (go for it)
  407. [13:02:07] <Kaingaskhan> It still manages to move forward somehow though
  408. [13:02:11] <Kaingaskhan> Two turns left
  409. [13:02:13] <@Lenore> (not at all, Celina~)
  410. [13:02:51] * Celina shoots towards the ground again, and misses the Epitaph completely! BUT THAT WAS NEVER HER TRUE AIM
  411. [13:03:06] <Kaingaskhan> oh boy
  412. [13:03:09] <Celina> 2d6+2 force check to destroy the ground under and before it
  413. [13:03:10] <DiceMaid-9001> Celina, force check to destroy the ground under and before it: 13 [2d6=5,6]
  414. [13:03:11] <Amaryllis> (oh collapsing the bridge?)
  415. [13:03:22] <Celina> (we're not at the bridge yet I think)
  416. [13:03:22] <Natalie> (oh, that's pretty neat)
  417. [13:03:28] <Kaingaskhan> You're all on the bridge
  418. [13:03:36] <Kaingaskhan> The entire room is one big bridge over a chasm
  419. [13:03:38] <Kaingaskhan> But it's ok
  420. [13:03:40] <Natalie> (DO IT ANYWAY, WE'RE FAST ENOUGH)
  421. [13:03:54] <Kaingaskhan> Celina lands with an audible CRUNCH in front of the Demon Epitaph.
  422. [13:04:09] <Amaryllis> (maybe we'll get a level for how cool it is and we can all take defy gravity while we're in freefall before we die)
  423. [13:04:09] <Kaingaskhan> The floor starts to crack but doesn't quite give way.
  424. [13:04:34] <Kaingaskhan> You don't think it will survive the demon wall walking on it though
  425. [13:04:38] <Natalie> (Hmmm, should I help?  I mean I... also... have no force)
  426. [13:04:59] <Celina> (nah, when it moves, it'll break)
  427. [13:05:04] <Amaryllis> "A clever plan, but we share the ground with our foe." Does this look like one of those bridges where the whole thing collapses if a portion does? Or will just that bit fall?
  428. [13:05:05] <Natalie> (yeah that's good)
  429. [13:05:10] <Kaingaskhan> Just that one bit.
  430. [13:05:20] <Natalie> "Then let's stop sharing it!"
  431. [13:05:23] <Theta> "It's repairable, at the least."
  432. [13:05:42] <Amaryllis> (did the thing just crush the machine in the middle of the bridge then?)
  433. [13:05:56] <Kaingaskhan> The machine was like...
  434. [13:06:00] <Kaingaskhan> on the edge of the bridge
  435. [13:06:03] <Kaingaskhan> it walked right past
  436. [13:06:09] <Kaingaskhan> is how I'd describe it
  437. [13:06:22] <Kaingaskhan> You could let it walk past if you were standing on the railing
  438. [13:06:28] <Kaingaskhan> but it's not a very wide railing
  439. [13:06:29] <Amaryllis> (oh)
  440. [13:07:09] <Kaingaskhan> So what do
  441. [13:07:28] <Amaryllis> (possible to hit it in melee without being where the bridge is breaking?)
  442. [13:07:48] <Natalie> (maybe we should all make our ESCAPE CHECKS)
  443. [13:08:08] <Kaingaskhan> NOT quite, Ammy
  444. [13:08:24] * Amaryllis backs away from the advancing wall.
  445. [13:08:48] <Kaingaskhan> prickles scrambles back too
  446. [13:08:49] <Kaingaskhan> anyone else?
  447. [13:08:55] * Natalie blows another BOOST and does the same!
  448. [13:09:09] <Theta> Another sword laser from Theta
  449. [13:09:11] <Theta> 2d6+2
  450. [13:09:12] <DiceMaid-9001> Theta, 2d6+2: 8 [2d6=4,2]
  451. [13:09:15] <Kaingaskhan> yup
  452. [13:09:16] <Theta> and another 30
  453. [13:09:25] <Kaingaskhan> Alllmost down
  454. [13:09:37] <Kaingaskhan> but not quite - Lenore you want to try and ruin celina's fun?
  455. [13:09:44] <@Lenore> Sure!
  456. [13:09:56] <Kaingaskhan> granted you'd probably have to crit
  457. [13:10:04] <Celina> do it lenny :D
  458. [13:10:06] <Natalie> (DON'T DO IT IT'S A TRAP)
  459. [13:11:06] <@Lenore> 2d6+1 "MY FOOT GLOWS WITH AN AWESOME POWER!  IT TELLS ME TO PROTECT MY FRIENDS!  TAKE THIS!  ALL OUR PAIN AND SORROW!  BLITZ KICK!"  She runs up to it and...
  460. [13:11:06] <DiceMaid-9001> Lenore, "MY FOOT GLOWS WITH AN AWESOME POWER!  IT TELLS ME TO PROTECT MY FRIENDS!  TAKE THIS!  ALL OUR PAIN AND SORROW!  BLITZ KICK!"  She runs up to it and...: 8 [2d6=5,2]
  461. [13:11:17] * Natalie spins around to applaud.
  462. [13:11:20] <Kaingaskhan> hits but not a crit
  463. [13:11:44] <@Lenore> That'd be...19 ARM damage
  464. [13:11:47] <Kaingaskhan> bonk, doesn't go down
  465. [13:11:50] <Kaingaskhan> oh well
  466. [13:11:52] <Kaingaskhan> WALL'S TURN
  467. [13:11:57] <Kaingaskhan> It moves forward to swipe at Lenore...
  468. [13:12:02] <Kaingaskhan> And you hear more cracking.
  469. [13:12:15] <Kaingaskhan> The floor underneath it starts to shatter and dislodge...
  470. [13:12:31] <Kaingaskhan> And with a screech the entire section of bridge under it suddenly falls away, casting it into the abyss!
  471. [13:12:53] <Kaingaskhan> On the other hand there's now an eight foot gap in the bridge heading back the way you came.
  472. [13:13:00] <Natalie> "That was pretty good!  ... Only we probably didn't actually NEED protecting."
  473. [13:13:35] * Natalie victory poses! 1,1Tifa's victory pose, in fact.
  474. [13:13:39] * @Lenore backs up away from the gap and sits down. "I really wanted to be useful!"
  475. [13:13:56] * Amaryllis approaches the edge of the gap. "Could perhaps you bring Theta back across to examine the machine?" She turns toward Celina.
  476. [13:14:27] * Natalie gives Lenny a nod and stands near the edge, inspecting the gap. "I've made worse jumps before!"
  477. [13:14:37] <Celina> "I could - but couldn't he just reshape the bridge?"
  478. [13:14:39] <Celina> "He did it before."
  479. [13:14:55] <Kaingaskhan> It seems to have dropped 2250 gil and a Soft next to Lenore, and 1 whole experience point! Geez that wasn't fucking worth that at all.
  480. [13:15:14] <Theta> "I would imagine it's possible..."
  481. [13:15:18] <Kaingaskhan> (450 gil each)
  482. [13:15:38] * @Lenore takes the soft and holds onto it. She doesn't have her hat so any item is precious. Preeeecious.
  483. [13:15:43] <Theta> He heads over to the edge, and attempts to mend the gap in the chasm
  484. [13:15:56] * Natalie takes all the gil- just kidding.
  485. [13:16:00] <Kaingaskhan> Roll me a skill and try to fluff it cleverly.
  486. [13:16:03] <Kaingaskhan> Surprise me
  487. [13:16:14] <Natalie> But she does scribble some diary stuff while Omicron has his fun.
  488. [13:16:18] * Amaryllis nods and steps away from the hole, letting Theta handle this.
  489. [13:16:59] * Theta thinks for a moment. "What we truely need here is the mechanism. We might need a way back later, but..."
  490. [13:18:58] <Theta> He looks down, how far down does this go?
  491. [13:19:01] <Kaingaskhan> 1,1do you really need the mechanism?
  492. [13:19:06] <Kaingaskhan> You can't see the bottom
  493. [13:19:18] <Kaingaskhan> Also
  494. [13:19:21] <Kaingaskhan> for everyone's info
  495. [13:19:27] <Kaingaskhan> 1,1The Epitaph Wall has Undying
  496. [13:19:49] <@Lenore> (Oh dear)
  497. [13:19:54] <Celina> 1,1 well good thing it can't dying its way out of the abyss
  498. [13:20:32] <Kaingaskhan> anyway, whatchoo guys doing?
  499. [13:20:41] <Kaingaskhan> Going to try and go back and mess with more weird Terran machines?
  500. [13:20:43] <Theta> (I'm thinking how to approach this.)
  501. [13:20:46] <Natalie> (DAMNIT I SHOULD'VE SAVED FOR EXORCISE)
  502. [13:20:47] <Kaingaskhan> Or move forward and look for ogres
  503. [13:20:49] <Natalie> (SHITWAFFLES)
  504. [13:21:33] <Celina> "Well, Sir Theta, can you do it?"
  505. [13:21:37] <Kaingaskhan> (It wasn't actually undead or a fiend, I have it down as a construct)
  506. [13:21:45] <Natalie> (oh, I see)
  507. [13:21:48] <Kaingaskhan> (So a fake demon)
  508. [13:22:09] * Natalie idles back across the bridge while scribbling. Not even watching where she's going, how risky! ... But it's toward the exit.
  509. [13:22:19] <Kaingaskhan> This was just a Notorious Monster, by the way. While Theta figures out what to do what did you guys think of that
  510. [13:23:17] <Natalie> Cute reference.
  511. [13:23:31] <Kaingaskhan> was it interesting or annoying
  512. [13:23:41] <Celina> interesting
  513. [13:23:45] <@Lenore> ^
  514. [13:23:46] * Natalie marks a checkmark on the former.
  515. [13:23:54] <Amaryllis> (former)
  516. [13:24:07] * Celina checks to make sure Sir Prickles is all right, by the way. She knows how traumatizing CLONES can be.
  517. [13:24:10] * @Lenore starts moving along the bridge, eye out for Ogres.
  518. [13:24:16] <Natalie> (For reference, annoying is IMMUNE TO EVERYTHING and you constantly say "Your attack didn't do anything!")
  519. [13:24:20] <Kaingaskhan> Prickles is just kind of on the edge of the bridge, staring into the abyss.
  520. [13:24:21] <Natalie> (man I'd be mad if someone did that)
  521. [13:24:26] <Theta> (You're going to be disapointed with the only solution I got at the moment.  I don't see what you're trying to suggest I do.)  "We do not require a full bridge to reach it, just the railing," he imagines tugging a section from just the strip of the railing out so that someone balanced enough to bridge the gap.
  522. [13:24:37] <Theta> 2d6+3 nature
  523. [13:24:37] <DiceMaid-9001> Theta, nature: 13 [2d6=5,5]
  524. [13:24:44] <Kaingaskhan> boooo
  525. [13:24:56] <Kaingaskhan> Theta makes a tightrope of metal and stone
  526. [13:25:04] * Natalie 's EYES LIGHT UP.
  527. [13:25:18] <Theta> "There was a shiny stone in the mechanism..."
  528. [13:25:27] <Kaingaskhan> Athletics for anyone who tries to cross it
  529. [13:25:29] <Kaingaskhan> except for ratfeet
  530. [13:25:30] <Natalie> "What, like a crystal?"
  531. [13:25:31] <Theta> "I suppose if we had that, we could use it on another one later, maybe."
  532. [13:25:32] <Kaingaskhan> because jump
  533. [13:25:38] <Theta> "No, like a shiny stone."
  534. [13:25:42] <Natalie> "... Huh."
  535. [13:25:49] <Amaryllis> "...Careful Milady." Ammy's eyes dart toward Nat as soon as the tightrope is formed.
  536. [13:25:53] * Celina pats Sir Prickles awkwardly and holy shit her hand when's she going to learn better.
  537. [13:25:53] <Theta> (Yeah it's sorta useless what I'm doing when she can just hop across and grab it.)
  538. [13:25:54] * Natalie walks over and pockets her diary. "'Kay! I'll go get it~"
  539. [13:25:54] <Theta> (:S)
  540. [13:26:08] <Natalie> (Yeah, but is it FUN?)
  541. [13:26:09] <Celina> (well we'll need to get back eventually)
  542. [13:26:13] <Celina> (also that)
  543. [13:26:25] <Natalie> 2d6+6 Natty has a little something called OVERCONFIDENCE
  544. [13:26:26] <DiceMaid-9001> Natalie, Natty has a little something called OVERCONFIDENCE: 10 [2d6=1,3]
  545. [13:26:34] * Kaingaskhan squints
  546. [13:26:44] <@Lenore> 2d6 A-athletics?
  547. [13:26:44] <DiceMaid-9001> Lenore, A-athletics?: 6 [2d6=3,3]
  548. [13:27:07] * Natalie takes it easy and hums while walking across!
  549. [13:27:10] <Kaingaskhan> Lenore doesn't even get to the tightrope before vertigo overtakes her
  550. [13:27:27] <Theta> 2d6+3 theta gives it a shot, he made it afterall
  551. [13:27:27] <DiceMaid-9001> Theta, theta gives it a shot, he made it afterall: 10 [2d6=2,5]
  552. [13:27:28] <Kaingaskhan> Nat has a little difficulty, but she makes it.
  553. [13:27:34] <Kaingaskhan> Same with Theta
  554. [13:27:36] <@Lenore> "Aaaaah! Nope nope noep nope!"
  555. [13:27:44] <Celina> "Um, Miss Lenore?"
  556. [13:27:51] <Kaingaskhan> Prickles grabs the hem of Lenore's crabmono and pedals his little feet backwards.
  557. [13:27:52] * Natalie walks over to the machine and looks it over a few times.
  558. [13:27:59] <Celina> (hnng)
  559. [13:28:12] <Theta> "Well, if it's a projector, we don't all have to be here anyway, Lenore..." he looks down at it, seeing if there's any obvious way to use it
  560. [13:28:28] <Natalie> (Could I try to scavenge it, kainy?)
  561. [13:28:36] <Kaingaskhan> <Kaingaskhan> Theta - it seems to be some sort of..
  562. [13:28:36] <Kaingaskhan> <Kaingaskhan> hologram projector?
  563. [13:28:36] <Kaingaskhan> <Kaingaskhan> And there's a big round glowy stone half-sunk into a podium.
  564. [13:28:40] * @Lenore sits by the railing and hugs her knees and ohgod. Breathe in niiiice and slow. Calm down. Calm down.
  565. [13:28:44] <Kaingaskhan> Sure
  566. [13:28:47] <Kaingaskhan> Roll scavenge if you like
  567. [13:28:56] <Kaingaskhan> Prickles clings to Lenore. ;-;
  568. [13:29:00] <Natalie> 2d6+2 Nat tries to reach in and pilfer the stone then
  569. [13:29:02] <DiceMaid-9001> Natalie, Nat tries to reach in and pilfer the stone then: 14 [2d6=6,6]
  570. [13:29:07] <Kaingaskhan> "This is utterly terrifying."
  571. [13:29:17] * Kaingaskhan squint
  572. [13:29:19] <Natalie> ~
  573. [13:29:27] <Kaingaskhan> I see how it is Dicemaid
  574. [13:29:27] <@Lenore> "Y-yeah..."
  575. [13:29:32] <Theta> "Or...not."
  576. [13:29:52] <Natalie> "Hmm... doesn't look like a crystal..."
  577. [13:29:54] <Kaingaskhan> Theta - as far as you can tell she just rips out the stone wholesale. You're not sure it was supposed to come out that way.
  578. [13:30:04] <Natalie> "Doesn't feel like a crystal..."
  579. [13:30:05] * Natalie sniffs it.
  580. [13:30:09] <Kaingaskhan> It's a white, opaque orb about the size of a crystal ball.
  581. [13:30:12] <Kaingaskhan> Feels a little warm.
  582. [13:30:26] <Kaingaskhan> Almost a familiar energy inside. Hm.
  583. [13:30:56] <Natalie> "... Yeah, who would put it inside a thing like that, anyway?  Maybe they were trying to hide it?"
  584. [13:31:03] * Natalie does the Mint dance. "Finders, keepers~"
  585. [13:31:05] <Celina> "Are you two all right?" Celina hovers near Prickles and Lenore oh god why is she the one trying to be comforting
  586. [13:31:10] <Theta> "No...I'm...fairly certain it's a key component of its functionality."
  587. [13:31:10] <Kaingaskhan> Received 1,1anti-magic keystone
  588. [13:31:18] <Theta> "Also not sure you pulled it out correctly. You may have broke it."
  589. [13:31:20] <Natalie> "... Oh."
  590. [13:31:40] <Natalie> "Oops!  Well, it feels like it probably means something, so let's go ahead and take it anyway!"
  591. [13:32:47] * Amaryllis squints over at the two messing with the machine.
  592. [13:32:48] <Kaingaskhan> There's a few sparks from it, suddenly, and for a moment, your magical energy (Lenore's too) flickers back, then it's gone again.
  593. [13:32:50] <Lenore> "I-I'll be okay...in a minute..."
  594. [13:32:43] <Celina> "And you, Sir Prickles? I-If you want to talk about things..."
  595. [13:33:02] <Amaryllis> "How curious." Ammy tries in vain to call up a simple spell.
  596. [13:33:04] <Nacchan> "Oops!  Well, it feels like it probably means something, so let's go ahead and take it anyway!"
  597. [13:33:11] <Kaingaskhan> Prickles: "Erm... y-yes, perhaps now isn't the best time though... I could use an ear later if you like."
  598. [13:33:27] <Kaingaskhan> Nope, Ammy's spell fails
  599. [13:33:47] <Theta> "Leeet's just hope the stone isn't just an energy source for it and we can try it in another one."
  600. [13:33:59] <Theta> He returns across the gap
  601. [13:34:01] <Kaingaskhan> Theta - she didn't break the projector or its key systems, just the stone podium. Going to try anything while you're over here?
  602. [13:34:06] <Nacchan> "We could always use it a weapon if we can't put it back in, anyway..."  She considers doing the Jecht Shot with it but then realizes that's meta as fuck and pockets it.  Or carries it if it's heavy.
  603. [13:34:24] <Celina> "All right, Sir Prickles."
  604. [13:34:35] <Nacchan> Either way Natty balances back over too!
  605. [13:34:39] <Theta> 2d6+3 scavange it as well I guess to see if there IS anything else worthwhile to take from it
  606. [13:34:40] <DiceMaid-9001> Theta, scavange it as well I guess to see if there IS anything else worthwhile to take from it: 14 [2d6=5,6]
  607. [13:34:45] <Kaingaskhan> well goddamn
  608. [13:34:50] <@Lenore> (poor Kain)
  609. [13:34:57] <@Lenore> (Everyone's rolling good scavenge.)
  610. [13:35:00] <Theta> (well he ASKED)
  611. [13:35:02] <Theta> (>:T)
  612. [13:35:21] <Kaingaskhan> This time you scavenge, and you get... some kind of red crystal! Not part of THE crystal, of course, but you... hm, what IS this.
  613. [13:35:29] <Kaingaskhan> Roll me systems to test how good your genome memory is.
  614. [13:35:52] <Theta> 2d6 what is systems it's certainly something I'll be putting points in after this but
  615. [13:35:53] <DiceMaid-9001> Theta, what is systems it's certainly something I'll be putting points in after this but: 6 [2d6=4,2]
  616. [13:36:56] <Kaingaskhan> Oh, it's... it's... nope, can't remember. It's an important something, anyway. Maybe you can get it identified if you bring it to an expert, like another genome or some really smart scholar.
  617. [13:37:04] <Kaingaskhan> Received Mysterious Component
  618. [13:37:06] <Nacchan> (Wow I just realized my sheet has says 'Atlhetics' this entire time, what a dyslexioak)
  619. [13:37:15] <Kaingaskhan> OKAY moving on?
  620. [13:37:27] * Theta frowns as he looks at it and pockets it, frustrated for some reason
  621. [13:37:54] * Nacchan walks across the tightrope backwards. "Something wrong, Mr. Delta?"
  622. [13:38:13] * Amaryllis looks on til the pair gets back and then turns to Prickles. "Please, do not be frightened by what I did to the imitation." Squibble squab. She then starts toward the door.
  623. [13:38:42] <Kaingaskhan> Prickles: "O-of course."
  624. [13:38:44] * Theta shakes his head. "Things that are familiar but I do not recall why. It's an uncomfortable feeling."
  625. [13:39:02] <Kaingaskhan> OKAY NEXT ROOM
  626. [13:39:05] <Kaingaskhan> surprisingly the door is unlocked
  627. [13:39:08] * Nacchan hops off and grumbles a "tell me abou-" before cutting herself off and PROCEEDING
  628. [13:39:12] * @Lenore slowly gets up and follows the group. Nomagic place is scary ;_;
  629. [13:39:13] <Kaingaskhan> huh, that entire battle could have just been avoided
  630. [13:39:16] <Kaingaskhan> oh well
  631. [13:39:28] <Celina> But that wouldn't have been badass, silly narrator
  632. [13:39:31] <Nacchan> ^!
  633. [13:39:55] <Amaryllis> (maybe the epitaph landed on a switch at the bottom of the abyss that unlocked the door)
  634. [13:40:36] * Amaryllis looks a bit disappointed at Prickles's clear nervousness but proceeds anyhow.
  635. [13:40:43] <Nacchan> Natty walks in hardly paying any attention, trying to balance the stone on her knees and other silly shit.
  636. [13:41:10] <Kaingaskhan> You step into a room that... surprise surprise has more holographic projectors in here! They all seem to be display what look like weird airships. There's also some kind of laser fence surrounding a small area, where two moogles sit and talk. A recently constructed sign stands near it, reading "Anti-Monster Thingamajig"
  637. [13:41:22] <Celina> "Moogles! Finally, good news."
  638. [13:41:35] <Nacchan> "Ohh!  Are there more of these stones in those?"
  639. [13:41:44] <Kaingaskhan> One of the moogles turns and immediately is familiar to you, wearing a leopard print hood and having a backpack.
  640. [13:41:49] <Kaingaskhan> No, doesn't look like it.
  641. [13:42:14] <Kaingaskhan> Stiltzkin: "Oh hey, you guys... right! From under Daguerreo. Huh, good to see you again."
  642. [13:42:53] <Kaingaskhan> The old moogle shakily stands up and opens up the laser fence thing.
  643. [13:43:04] <Kaingaskhan> (This is counting as consecrated ground, for the record)
  644. [13:43:12] * Theta seems a bit preoccupied with the other sights in the rom before noticing the googles. "Hrm?"
  645. [13:43:14] * Nacchan meanwhile trolls around the projectors anyway.
  646. [13:43:18] <Amaryllis> "A device of your own construction? Or salvaged from this place?"
  647. [13:43:22] <Amaryllis> (THE GOOGLES)
  648. [13:43:29] <Nacchan> (best)
  649. [13:43:32] <Theta> (Yes, the googles.)
  650. [13:43:38] <Kaingaskhan> The other moogle speaks up. "I found it in the ruins, kupo. It's pretty cool!"
  651. [13:43:48] <Theta> (I expect to make that typo all the time.)
  652. [13:44:14] <Amaryllis> (Do these look like Gaian airship designs, or something totally alien to us?)
  653. [13:44:26] <Kaingaskhan> Completely alien... well, except one.
  654. [13:44:32] <@Lenore> "Nice to see you again!"
  655. [13:44:42] <Kaingaskhan> One projector displays the Invincible, which was seen all over Gaia briefly ten years ago.
  656. [13:44:52] <Celina> "Hm."
  657. [13:45:25] <Kaingaskhan> The projectors also display fuzzy, hard to read Terran text about the names and histories of some of these airships, but even Theta's having a hard time making them out.
  658. [13:45:46] <Kaingaskhan> Stiltzkin: "You all as well. You look like you just got run through the gauntlet. Come on in, it's safe in here."
  659. [13:45:50] <Nacchan> Nat walks around nodding at them pretending to understand, attempting to do silly nonsense like cram the stone into them all even if it's OBVIOUS it won't work.
  660. [13:46:14] <Kaingaskhan> Stiltzkin walks over to a tent he's got set up and heads in, then emerges with a plate of fresh cookies and a teapot.
  661. [13:46:35] <Amaryllis> "Have we met?" Ammy turns to the other moogle.
  662. [13:46:36] * Nacchan yaaawns and eventually heads back over, anyway.
  663. [13:46:57] <Kaingaskhan> Nat completely wastes her time. :3c
  664. [13:47:02] <Nacchan> Of course~
  665. [13:47:26] <Celina> "I can't remember the last time I had a proper tea..." Celina looks almost overcome by emotion.
  666. [13:47:50] <Kaingaskhan> Stiltzkin: "Yes, though it wasn't for very long. The nice Nezumi here donated money to help fund my traveling."
  667. [13:48:12] <Kaingaskhan> Stiltzkin: "I guess reintroductions are in order though, I'm Stiltzkin, a traveling moogle. Though this is my last journey."
  668. [13:48:22] <Nacchan> "T-Tea... right."  Natty puts on her haughty princess attitude again, or at least tries to, while walking through and giving the moogles a nod of greeting.
  669. [13:48:29] <Amaryllis> (oh I was speaking to the moogle you haven't introduced by name yet)
  670. [13:48:33] <Kaingaskhan> (Oh, whoops)
  671. [13:49:01] <@Lenore> "A tea would be great..."
  672. [13:49:11] <Kaingaskhan> "I'm Mooel, kupo!"
  673. [13:49:18] <Nacchan> (that's some "this guy are sick"-level shit)
  674. [13:49:27] * Theta nibbles on a cookie. "I am Theta, of Black Mage Village."
  675. [13:49:44] <Kaingaskhan> Stiltzkin shakily gets out some cups and pours you all some tea! And that's a fuckhuge tray of cookies.
  676. [13:49:57] <Amaryllis> "Amaryllis Middleton, servant to House Aitchison. Well met." Ammy settles down, and after a moment's pause she takes the teapot and pours for everyone.
  677. [13:49:59] <Amaryllis> (oh)
  678. [13:50:01] <Theta> "Where did you even bake those out here?"
  679. [13:50:02] <Amaryllis> (well fine >:V)
  680. [13:50:14] <Amaryllis> (in the lasers, duh)
  681. [13:50:24] <Theta> (that doesn't even make sense.)
  682. [13:50:33] <Kaingaskhan> Mooel: "We have facilities in the tent, kupo."
  683. [13:50:43] <Celina> "Speaking of, Sir Stiltzkin, how have your travels gone?"
  684. [13:50:46] <Theta> "Bwuh...like...a proper oven?"
  685. [13:51:09] <Nacchan> "Na... oh whatever, I don't need to give that introduction to everyone.  But I'm of House Aitchison- go ahead and call me 'Nat' if you want!  Now..."
  686. [13:51:14] <Kaingaskhan> Mooel: "And a bathroom, and a bunk bed, and a..."
  687. [13:51:47] * Nacchan interrupts the moogles after idly nodding along a bit, whipping out the stone. "Oh! Any idea what this does?"
  688. [13:51:47] <Kaingaskhan> Stiltzkin: "They've gone as well as they ever have, I think. Which is to say pretty good, thank you. I'm retracing my steps in some places, meeting some old friends."
  689. [13:51:56] <@Lenore> "I'm Lenore!  Nice to meet you..."
  690. [13:52:09] * Amaryllis peers skeptically at the moogle tent, then takes out her journal and deliberately scrawls a few notes.
  691. [13:52:26] <Kaingaskhan> Mooel: "Ooh, that's the thing from the bridge room! Um, not really, kupo. I think it controls some of the machines in the other rooms, but I'm not sure."
  692. [13:52:41] <Nacchan> "Oh.  Huh, I guess I really did mess up!"
  693. [13:52:50] <Kaingaskhan> Stiltzkin: "By the way..."
  694. [13:53:09] <Kaingaskhan> Stiltzkin: "Speaking of, I'm starting to run low on traveling money again. I can't just ask for donations, but..."
  695. [13:53:18] <Nacchan> "Nnnn..."
  696. [13:53:30] <Celina> "Of course we'll do all we can to help you."
  697. [13:53:37] * Nacchan stops balancing the stone and holds it out. "Think this could sell for anything?"
  698. [13:54:10] <Amaryllis> "I believe we will find use for it if it controls machines in the ruins."
  699. [13:54:41] <Nacchan> "Oh, maybe!  Well we have tons of extra money anyway, probably."
  700. [13:55:26] <Amaryllis> "How much do you need?"
  701. [13:55:29] <Kaingaskhan> Stiltzkin: "Would you all be interested in a Kupo Bomb, a Sapphire, and a Moogle Tent for 999 gil?"
  702. [13:55:39] <Celina> "Yes!"
  703. [13:55:48] * Nacchan pauses. "... What's the second one do?"
  704. [13:55:49] * Celina donates her 450 gil to the project :D
  705. [13:56:12] * @Lenore donates her 450 gil too! "Sounds good to me!"
  706. [13:56:13] <Nacchan> "Sounds like something nnnnnnnice.  Sure, take some."
  707. [13:56:21] <Amaryllis> 559 to- oh fine whatever
  708. [13:56:27] <Kaingaskhan> He shows Natalie the sparkling blue gem.
  709. [13:56:28] <Nacchan> Natty has 240 to donate because the player is a raging autist who likes even numbers.
  710. [13:56:46] <Kaingaskhan> You all go SHUT UP AND TAKE MY MONEY at Stiltzkin
  711. [13:56:53] <Kaingaskhan> Jackupochan.jpg
  712. [13:57:01] <Nacchan> "Nnnnneat!  I love jewels, so~"
  713. [13:57:17] * Nacchan does the Mint dance again. Seriously, why hasn't this been a thing more often?
  714. [13:57:25] <Nacchan> And why is there no better way to describe it than 'The Mint dance?'
  715. [13:57:38] <Kaingaskhan> Stiltzkin: "Thanks, but -just- 999 will do. I really appreciate the generosity though."
  716. [13:57:49] <Nacchan> I guess maybe the 'fuck yeah I'm rich' dance, but that doesn't work to describe anyone who's already rich.
  717. [13:57:57] <Kaingaskhan> He'll take from Celina and Lenore then since they were the first two.
  718. [13:58:14] <Nacchan> But that's only 900!  NAT GIVES HIM 99 MORE.
  719. [13:58:18] <@Lenore> "I'll hold on to them!"  She'd be more useful on Item duty than kicking things.  Maybe.
  720. [13:58:26] <Kaingaskhan> Received Component: Sapphire! Usable item: Kupo Bomb! Usable Item: Moogle Tent!
  721. [13:58:33] * Amaryllis is too slow reaching for her bag of gil.
  722. [13:58:53] * Nacchan makes grabby hands at the sapphire! "Don't worry, I'll hold onto that one!"
  723. [13:59:08] <Celina> "If you insist."
  724. [13:59:08] <Kaingaskhan> The component Sapphire has
  725. [13:59:13] <@Lenore> (...actually that's a component so it doesn't matter who uses that one.)
  726. [13:59:16] <Kaingaskhan> Two possible abilities!
  727. [13:59:22] <Theta> (girls are such softies for moogle merchants.)
  728. [13:59:23] <@Lenore> (*holds, not uses)
  729. [13:59:37] <Kaingaskhan> Special Ability (Gillionaire) or 1,1Special Ability (Fenrir)
  730. [13:59:41] <Celina> (Celina is living vicariously)
  731. [13:59:46] * Amaryllis leans over. "Another color would suit you better, milady."
  732. [13:59:51] <Amaryllis> (oh dear god what?)
  733. [13:59:59] <Nacchan> As long as there's space for that AND the stone she holds it close~
  734. [14:00:06] <Celina> (added to the synthesis page)
  735. [14:00:15] * @Lenore is holding onto the Kupo Bomb and Moogle Tent!
  736. [14:00:17] <Kaingaskhan> Seems like you'd need a lot of money to actually make it into a usable item with one of those
  737. [14:00:26] <Nacchan> "I know, right?  I don't ever wanna let go of it!"
  738. [14:00:34] <Kaingaskhan> A Moogle Tent gives a full rest anywhere where there's a moogle to help you use it
  739. [14:00:41] <Nacchan> "Nnnnn... maybe it's just the color."
  740. [14:00:47] <Kaingaskhan> (You're going to get a rest here anyway though so don't bother using it now)
  741. [14:00:49] <Celina> "The next time we meet, you'll have to tell me some more of your travels, Sir Stiltzkin."
  742. [14:00:55] * Celina siiiip.
  743. [14:01:23] <Amaryllis> "Is there not time for sharing of stories now?" Ammy frowns as she drinks her tea. "...I suppose not, with our task."
  744. [14:01:30] <Celina> (Lenore, you used the crab claw in something, right?)
  745. [14:01:38] <Celina> "Well yes, but he will go on more adventures, right?"
  746. [14:01:44] <Kaingaskhan> Kupo Bomb is a Tier 2 Explosive Consumable that uses the user's highest stat instead of Power
  747. [14:02:04] <Kaingaskhan> Only non-elemental
  748. [14:02:29] <Kaingaskhan> Stiltzkin chuckles. "I'd be glad to share some stories now, if you really don't mind."
  749. [14:02:35] <Celina> "Please!"
  750. [14:02:58] <Kaingaskhan> Stiltzkin: "Let's see... last time I was here, it was just before... ah, yes."
  751. [14:03:12] * Nacchan sits down excitedly, eyes now perma-sparkling.
  752. [14:03:30] <@Lenore> (Yeah I did.)
  753. [14:03:41] <@Lenore> (But I thought there were like 2 of them.)
  754. [14:03:46] <@Lenore> (Maybe not.)
  755. [14:03:48] <Celina> (oh, were there? never mind then)
  756. [14:03:52] <Nacchan> (Wasn't that just the crab MEAT?)
  757. [14:03:53] <Kaingaskhan> Stiltzkin: "I paid for passage on a peculiar new airship, the Hilda Garde 3. That was one of the first airships that used steam power, you know."
  758. [14:04:03] <@Lenore> (Yeah I think it was meat now that I think about it.)
  759. [14:04:10] <Amaryllis> (yeah I forgot to put the claw up, but I remember LEnore used the meat not the claw)
  760. [14:04:21] * Amaryllis listens intently.
  761. [14:04:24] <Kaingaskhan> Stiltzkin: "I was heading to Esto Gaza, but on the way the most peculiar thing happened."
  762. [14:05:07] <Kaingaskhan> Stiltzkin: "The ship made a stop at the Pathway of Souls southward of the holy ground, the Shimmering Island, and a vortex of light and energy was coming out of the ground."
  763. [14:05:12] <Celina> "Oh?"
  764. [14:05:22] <@Lenore> "Neat!"
  765. [14:05:26] <Nacchan> "Huhhh."
  766. [14:05:32] <Kaingaskhan> Stiltzkin: "And even more peculiarly the airship I was on flew right inside, before eight of the passengers leaped off into the vortex!"
  767. [14:05:42] <@Lenore> "What?"
  768. [14:06:00] <Kaingaskhan> Stiltzkin: "I figured they knew what they were doing, and never one to pass up adventure, I abandoned the airship myself and followed them! And it was the strangest thing..."
  769. [14:06:02] <Amaryllis> "What became of them?"
  770. [14:06:21] <Kaingaskhan> Stiltzkin: "The lot of us ended up on another world!"
  771. [14:06:47] <Nacchan> "Another?  Like... uhhh, whatwasit..."
  772. [14:06:51] <Kaingaskhan> Stiltzkin: "One with bright blue lights everywhere, and complacent, blonde-haired folk with furry tails."
  773. [14:06:59] * Celina glances over at Theta.
  774. [14:07:05] <Kaingaskhan> Stiltzkin: "I talked to another moogle who lived there, we had arrived on a place called 'Terra'."
  775. [14:07:05] * Nacchan does the same.
  776. [14:07:20] <Kaingaskhan> Stiltzkin: "And the other moogle had never even heard of our home planet, Gaia!"
  777. [14:07:20] <@Lenore> "Say whaaaat?"
  778. [14:08:07] <Kaingaskhan> Stiltzkin: "It may sound far fetched, but I assure you it's nothing but the truth."
  779. [14:08:13] <Nacchan> "Huh... Moogles..."  Scribblescribble.
  780. [14:08:16] <Amaryllis> "Are there not countless stories we have not touched, worlds we must not know of ourselves?"
  781. [14:08:20] <Kaingaskhan> Stiltzkin: "But what happened shortly afterward was more than tragic."
  782. [14:08:33] <Theta> "What was it like there?"
  783. [14:08:59] <Kaingaskhan> Stiltzkin: "Blue light, everywhere. I think the denizens actually found it painful to look at, but they did so anyway."
  784. [14:09:30] <@Lenore> "Blue light...?"
  785. [14:09:35] <Nacchan> "Why's that?  Blue's a pretty good color..."  She's still staring at the sapphire, rotating it around.
  786. [14:09:38] <Theta> "Hm..."
  787. [14:09:41] <Kaingaskhan> Stiltzkin: "Strange structures suspended on pillars almost a mile off the ground... and beasts lived there that we've only recently seen here on Gaia. Like Malboros."
  788. [14:09:59] <Kaingaskhan> Stiltzkin: "Yes, there were crystal-like structures placed around the city I was in, 'Bran Bal'."
  789. [14:10:10] <Theta> "What was this moogle's name, by the way? He is on Gaia now I presume?"
  790. [14:10:38] <Amaryllis> "Such creatures came to our world from Terra?"
  791. [14:10:42] <Kaingaskhan> Stiltzkin: "His name was Morlock... and I'm not sure if he was one of the survivors."
  792. [14:11:07] <Kaingaskhan> Stiltzkin: "Shortly after I and those others arrived... the world of Terra was consumed in magical fire and completely destroyed."
  793. [14:11:20] * Nacchan scribbles in silence.
  794. [14:11:42] <Kaingaskhan> Stiltzkin: "I was one of the lucky ones, evacuating on board a different airship commandeered by the ones I traveled there with, and a number of the denizens of Bran Bal."
  795. [14:11:47] <Kaingaskhan> Stiltzkin sort of squints at Theta.
  796. [14:11:55] <Kaingaskhan> Stiltzkin: "Have I seen you someplace before...?"
  797. [14:12:07] <Theta> "Probably. I was there."
  798. [14:12:20] <Theta> "I do not recall it much, however."
  799. [14:12:33] <Kaingaskhan> Stiltzkin: "Ah, so you're one of the genomes, from that place..."
  800. [14:12:36] <@Lenore> "Strange..."
  801. [14:13:16] <Theta> "Yes.  We live with the black mages now.  They are, in a sense, our closest of kin on this world."
  802. [14:13:16] <Kaingaskhan> Stiltzkin: "Terra was a beautiful, if alien, place. The lives and locales lost can never be replaced."
  803. [14:13:49] <Kaingaskhan> Stiltzkin nods. "Good, good."
  804. [14:14:01] <Kaingaskhan> Stiltzkin: "It's good to see that you got another chance."
  805. [14:14:55] <Celina> "If you'll excuse me, I think I'm going to take a walk."
  806. [14:14:57] <Nacchan> Scribble... pause.  "Oh, I get it!  So that person we met survived that too, right?"
  807. [14:15:04] <Kaingaskhan> Stiltzkin: "I found out later... the eight who I followed to Terra were the ones who saved the world at the battle of the Iifa Tree. Funny, really, I had met them several times over the course of my journey."
  808. [14:15:07] * Celina abruptly gets to her feet.
  809. [14:15:08] <Kaingaskhan> He nods at Celina. "Of course."
  810. [14:15:44] <Amaryllis> "Then you must have many stories to tell, the ones that do not make it into the songs of bards or the official histories."
  811. [14:15:54] <Amaryllis> "Many stories are lost that way."
  812. [14:15:59] <Theta> "If she was a genome, then yes, she was."
  813. [14:16:25] <@Lenore> "Hmmm..."
  814. [14:16:28] <Kaingaskhan> "Mm, maybe. I've lived a full life, and certainly one full of tales, but all in all..." he reminisces a moment.
  815. [14:16:36] <Nacchan> "Ah-huh... why she's doing what she's doing is super weird, then, from the sound of things, don'tcha think?"
  816. [14:16:44] <Kaingaskhan> Prickles scuttles out after Celina, following her.
  817. [14:16:56] * Nacchan waves the rat off.
  818. [14:17:14] <Theta> "It is puzzling, yes."
  819. [14:17:27] <Kaingaskhan> Stiltzkin: "I don't think I know who you're talking about... but in any case, feel free to rest and relax here for a bit."
  820. [14:17:42] <Amaryllis> "I hope that we see you just as often then, as you make your last journey."
  821. [14:17:43] <Nacchan> "Don't worry, we have plenty of time to talk about it!"
  822. [14:18:02] * Nacchan prepares to blab all about fake-kuja while they rest.
  823. [14:19:17] <Amaryllis> "It is my belief that everyone has one story to tell that marks who they are, frames them perfectly in their own narrative. Which story that is may change for someone over the course of their life, but by the end of it, they will find the one that will forever remain their answer to that question."
  824. [14:20:08] * Amaryllis finishes off her cup of tea and refills it, swishing it around to watch the movement of the loose leaves within.
  825. [14:20:22] * Theta nods, pretending he has a clue what the hell Ammy just said
  826. [14:20:24] * Nacchan hasn't drank any tea yet.
  827. [14:20:27] <Kaingaskhan> Mooel comes out of the tent with a mini-burrito, chomping it.
  828. [14:20:58] <Kaingaskhan> Stiltzkin: "If that's the case... my story has probably already passed, then."
  829. [14:21:47] <Amaryllis> "Maybe you will find it on this last journey. Or discover it was one from your past that mattered most all along." Ammy takes another small drink. "When you do, I would like to hear it."
  830. [14:22:01] <Nacchan> "No way!  The only stories that ever 'pass' are the really boring, forgettable ones.  But usually they last forever, you know?"
  831. [14:22:49] <Kaingaskhan> THETA, anything you might wanna talk to stiltzkin about?
  832. [14:24:20] <Nacchan> (#mans gonna #man)
  833. [14:25:01] <Theta> (thinking if there's anything else I wanna ask him.)
  834. [14:25:18] <Theta> "You by chance didn't....bring anything back with you from Terra?"
  835. [14:25:27] <Kaingaskhan> Stiltzkin thinks.
  836. [14:25:43] <Theta> "It's regretaable but we sadly do not have much from our homeworld, or remember our lives there much."
  837. [14:26:50] <Kaingaskhan> Siltzkin: "A few trinkets, and odds and ends, but over the years I've had to trade them. Hmm, perhaps if you went to Treno... I'm almost entirely certain some of the things I brought back ended up on the auction market at some point."
  838. [14:27:14] <@Lenore> "T-Treno, huh?"
  839. [14:27:24] <Kaingaskhan> Stiltzkin: "I'm not sure what use they'd be but if searching for your past is that important to you it might be worth a try."
  840. [14:28:34] <Theta> "Hmm...I see."
  841. [14:28:59] * Nacchan goes back to silence, lying down and dangling the sapphire around.
  842. [14:29:47] * Celina returns with Sir Prickles at some point.
  843. [14:30:58] <Amaryllis> "I know what it is common to know of the war by now, but I am curious what has gone untold of the heroes who defeated Kuja. Perhaps another time, however." Ammy looks up to see Celina's return.
  844. [14:31:04] <Kaingaskhan> (If it's okay, I need to grab a bite to eat)
  845. [14:31:10] <Kaingaskhan> (You guys mind waiting a minute?)
  846. [14:31:14] <@Lenore> 'kay
  847. [14:31:20] <Amaryllis> (sure)
  848. [14:31:24] <Nacchan> (That's fine!  If it were /session this early I'd cry)
  849. [14:31:41] <Amaryllis> (we haven't fought the endboss yet how could we /session?)
  850. [14:31:56] <@Lenore> (^)
  851. [14:32:09] <Nacchan> (>implying that wasn't the wall)
  852. [14:32:21] <Amaryllis> (he said it was a notorious monster)
  853. [14:32:41] <Nacchan> (oh I guess he did, guess 1,1Lenny's dad is feeling grumpy)
  854. [14:32:47] <Nacchan> (1,1get it, because he's Necron)
  855. [14:35:03] <Kaingaskhan> (Nomnomnom)
  856. [14:35:17] <Kaingaskhan> OKAY
  857. [14:35:26] <Kaingaskhan> You fuckpancakes get a full rest
  858. [14:36:00] <Kaingaskhan> As Celina comes back, you almost immediately hear some noises from the room southward of here
  859. [14:36:01] * Celina zzzzzzzzzzz
  860. [14:36:10] <Celina> oh okay
  861. [14:36:19] <Kaingaskhan> (Or after you rest a bit, either way)
  862. [14:36:25] <Kaingaskhan> The tea and cookies WERE THAT GOOD
  863. [14:36:29] <Kaingaskhan> delicious tea
  864. [14:36:47] <Kaingaskhan> Anyway the noises
  865. [14:36:48] <Kaingaskhan> sound like
  866. [14:36:55] <Kaingaskhan> "Aaaah! Get back!"
  867. [14:36:55] <Nacchan> EXPLOSIONS?
  868. [14:36:58] <Nacchan> Oh.
  869. [14:37:02] <@Lenore> (Lenny's dad is pretty adverse to nomagic.  At least last I checked.)
  870. [14:37:07] <Kaingaskhan> It sounds like... Riese!
  871. [14:37:14] <Nacchan> (bullshit, you can't nomagic necron)
  872. [14:37:18] <Nacchan> (... can you?)
  873. [14:38:14] * Nacchan yaaaaaaaawns and stretches. "Nnnn... That's not okay, right?"
  874. [14:38:20] <@Lenore> "Oh no! We have to help or...something!"
  875. [14:38:33] <Nacchan> "Nnnnnmmmaybe it's an ogre."
  876. [14:38:42] <Kaingaskhan> Maybe it's a lion
  877. [14:38:45] <Theta> (You cannot.)
  878. [14:38:47] <Nacchan> maybe ur a lion
  879. [14:39:03] <Theta> (Necrons at their core ARE elderdarkgod fuckery magic)
  880. [14:39:15] <Nacchan> (ahaha)
  881. [14:39:20] <Celina> "....Oh dear."
  882. [14:39:31] * Nacchan pockets the sapphire and makes a dash, anyway!
  883. [14:39:34] <Theta> Anyway, Theta slowly gets up. "Hrm, not the best sound to wake up to."
  884. [14:39:45] * @Lenore follows after Natty!"
  885. [14:39:55] <@Lenore> (why did I put that " there it should go away grrr)
  886. [14:40:07] <Kaingaskhan> Stiltzkin: "Be careful!"
  887. [14:40:09] <Nacchan> She totally KICKS the door open too upon getting there, if at all possible.  For EFFECT.
  888. [14:40:14] <Kaingaskhan> BAM
  889. [14:40:16] <Kaingaskhan> you kick the door in
  890. [14:40:19] * Amaryllis spent the resting time reading. She looks up.
  891. [14:40:43] * Nacchan holds the pose for a second to look cool. Shorts make that okay!
  892. [14:41:17] <Kaingaskhan> You emerge into a large room in which there appears to be another console and SURPRISE SURPRISE another hologram projector, though this one seems to be a two-parter embedded in both the ceiling and floor. In the wide open middle area, Riese is trying to shoot at three large, blade wielding creatures with huge hats and gnashing teeth.
  893. [14:41:28] <Kaingaskhan> They look pretty much just like the hologram you saw earlier.
  894. [14:41:31] <Kaingaskhan> Ogres!
  895. [14:41:43] <Kaingaskhan> It doesn't look like her crossbow is doing much to them
  896. [14:41:45] <Nacchan> "... Huh, was I actually right?"
  897. [14:41:49] <Celina> "Well then. Do you mind if we step in, Lady Riese?"
  898. [14:42:00] <Kaingaskhan> Riese: "Eh? By all means, please!"
  899. [14:42:08] <Nacchan> "C'mon!  Let's go!"

  906. [14:42:37] <Amaryllis> (teamwork?)
  907. [14:42:42] * Nacchan considers throwing the stone at them. Consider... consider... nah.
  908. [14:42:43] <Theta> "They came to us who would have figured."
  909. [14:42:45] <Nacchan> (Sure!)
  910. [14:42:48] <Kaingaskhan> You heard the supposed target was bigger than normal.
  911. [14:43:32] <Amaryllis> (does one fit that description or are they all equally big?)
  912. [14:43:38] <Kaingaskhan> <Kaingaskhan> They seem to be around the same size.

  954. [14:48:52] <Natalie> A kick SMACKS him in the back for a wimpy 13 ARM!  Because rerolling would make that 2 end up as a 1.  "Like a Glint of Light!!"
  955. [14:49:07] * Amaryllis uses the blast for cover, but comes from the side, timing her sword strike with Nat's attack. 33 arm damage
  956. [14:49:20] <Natalie> "That'd be neater with the actual light part."

  991. [14:53:50] <Natalie> (Okay, just checked the rules)
  992. [14:53:59] <Amaryllis> (probably SHOULD redirect to avoid trouble)
  993. [14:54:00] <Natalie> (I can redirect so it targets me instead, meaning it misses)
  994. [14:54:09] <Natalie> (well with the second one, not the first)
  995. [14:54:17] <Kaingaskhan> 29 arm damage and everyone else suddenly feels a phantom pain. Everyone else takes 14 piercing dama- Are you doing that then?

  1031. [14:57:45] <Natalie> (aaah screw it I love boost too much)
  1032. [14:58:15] <Amaryllis> (I would do the area attack one personally, but not during a teamwork)

  1083. [15:03:24] <Natalie> (... I can get rid of my ability to kick by boosting and redirecting if you want)
  1084. [15:03:30] <Natalie> (but I wouldn't be able to mach kick next turn)
  1085. [15:03:39] <Amaryllis> (hmmm, you should, because otherwise trouble takes you out)

  1092. [15:04:21] <Amaryllis> "What? I-" Ammy is cut short by the whoosh of a blade over her head.
  1093. [15:04:24] <Natalie> because I don't actually get it
  1094. [15:04:39] <Natalie> brawler doesn't grant the brawl property, it's actually just 'you do this much damage with unarmed attacks'

  1123. [15:07:36] <Amaryllis> "I just need a clear shot." Ammy struggles to keep focus but scrambles back a bit and points her sword at the ogre she's been wailing on. Held for teamwork.
  1124. [15:07:38] <Natalie> (see if someone can take the first ogre out before we try)
  1125. [15:07:59] <Natalie> (Also HEY RAT are you breathing?)

  1145. [15:10:49] <Natalie> "Leeny~?  Could I see that for a second?"  While helping Ammy not die, Natty's tugging at the ribbon.
  1146. [15:11:07] <Celina> "Uh. Sure. One second."
  1147. [15:11:15] * Celina distractedly hands it over before BOLT BREATH

  1179. [15:14:15] <@Lenore> (SAFE)
  1180. [15:14:25] <Natalie> "Launch him up!  ... If that's even a thing."
  1181. [15:14:31] <Natalie> That is...
  1182. [15:14:44] <Theta> (But they aren't staggered yet)
  1183. [15:14:46] <Amaryllis> "I just need an opening." Ammy's shaking, but she's holding the sword like a cannon again.
  1184. [15:14:53] <Natalie> 43 ARM damage!
  1185. [15:15:11] <Natalie> "Oh, I'll do this then!  Finishing Strike!"  She just wraps the ribbon around an ogre's arm and sends him at Ammy then.
  1186. [15:15:13] <Amaryllis> She concentrates and launches a bolt of shadow at the ogre! 78 shadow arm
  1187. [15:15:20] <@Kain> AND DOWN THAT ONE GOES
  1188. [15:15:24] <@Kain> Leaving just one!
  1189. [15:15:29] <Natalie> "... I forgot to name it."
  1190. [15:15:29] <Amaryllis> (hp recovered? 50% drain)
  1191. [15:15:38] <@Kain> 31
  1192. [15:15:38] <Natalie> "Oh well, half as effective is still good enough!"
  1193. [15:15:41] <Theta> And it's about to get bonked.
  1194. [15:15:43] <Theta> 2d6+2 pew pew
  1195. [15:15:44] <DiceMaid-9001> Theta, pew pew: 10 [2d6=3,5]
  1196. [15:15:49] <@Kain> BOINK
  1197. [15:15:50] <Theta> 32 damage
  1198. [15:16:24] <@Kain> Not down yet... and it looks murderously at Ammy, still inflicted with Trouble.
  1199. [15:16:29] <@Kain> It prepares... the CRITICAL ATTACK
  1200. [15:16:34] <Natalie> Boost.
  1201. [15:16:37] * Amaryllis quickly gets to her feet again, cautiously moving closer while dragging her sword along the ground.
  1202. [15:16:44] <@Kain> 2d6+3
  1203. [15:16:45] <DiceMaid-9001> Kain, 2d6+3: 11 [2d6=3,5]
  1204. [15:17:07] <Natalie> HMM, taking it WOULD hit because exactly 11 AVD
  1205. [15:17:23] <@Lenore> Nono, it favors the player in a tie, doesn't it?
  1206. [15:17:31] <Natalie> (pretty sure it's attacker)
  1207. [15:17:34] <@Kain> favors attacker I believe
  1208. [15:17:37] <@Kain> In any case
  1209. [15:17:41] <@Lenore> (oh well.)
  1210. [15:17:42] <@Kain> 73 arm damage, Natalia.
  1211. [15:18:03] <Natalie> "Thanks, Leeny!"  The white monk flings it back with a cheerful smile and kicks Ammy backwards!
  1212. [15:18:06] <Natalie> It being the ribbon.
  1213. [15:18:12] <Celina> wait, wasn't that guy sealed
  1214. [15:18:21] <@Lenore> ^
  1215. [15:18:22] <Celina> she he couldn't critical attack
  1216. [15:18:22] <@Kain> Eh this isn't an ability
  1217. [15:18:24] <Natalie> "That doesn't... hurt... you... know..."
  1218. [15:18:26] <Celina> :c
  1219. [15:18:28] <@Kain> It's just an attack variation
  1220. [15:18:29] <Natalie> (and I only have 3 hp)
  1221. [15:18:31] <@Kain> The Ogre cleaves hard into the poor sweet innocent lovable sue!
  1222. [15:18:43] <Natalie> WHOMP.
  1223. [15:18:48] <@Lenore> "Oh no!  Natty!" ;_;
  1224. [15:19:14] <Theta> "Well I certainly hope she has a potion or to to mend THAT one."
  1225. [15:19:17] <Amaryllis> "Oof..." Ammy is briefly winded then looks up. "Nat! Bloody hell..." She starts to wreathe her sword in shadow again as she raises it.
  1226. [15:20:15] <@Kain> A streak of crimson goes flying!
  1227. [15:20:15] <@Kain> AMMY
  1228. [15:20:23] <Amaryllis> 2d6+3 darkside that mofo
  1229. [15:20:23] <DiceMaid-9001> Amaryllis, darkside that mofo: 8 [2d6=4,1]
  1230. [15:20:28] <Kaingaskhan> yep
  1231. [15:20:52] * Amaryllis charges the ogre recklessly, ramming her sword deep into it. 75 shadow arm!
  1232. [15:21:00] <Kaingaskhan> And you blow him away! Three ogres lay dead at your feet.
  1233. [15:21:18] <Kaingaskhan> Riese: "...oh goodness. Is she alright? Wait just a moment, I think I might can..."
  1234. [15:21:23] * @Lenore immediately runs over to Natty and checks to see if she's okay ;_;
  1235. [15:21:26] * Natalie was totally 60% to DST territory from that, ow.
  1236. [15:21:36] <Natalie> Good thing DSTs don't exist in this system, huh?
  1237. [15:21:46] <Kaingaskhan> The nezumi puts away her crossbow and takes out some medicine bottles, pouring one flash of blue liquid into a flask of yellow liquid.
  1238. [15:21:48] <Kaingaskhan> 3d6
  1239. [15:21:48] <DiceMaid-9001> Kaingaskhan, 3d6: 13 [3d6=6,5,2]
  1240. [15:21:50] <Theta> (this system is very, very dificult to DIE in, yes)
  1241. [15:21:51] * Amaryllis puts a foot against the ogre and yanks her sword out, then stabs it again for good measure before shuffling over to Nat.
  1242. [15:21:52] <Kaingaskhan> Didn't think so
  1243. [15:21:58] <Kaingaskhan> Cheat Fate
  1244. [15:22:02] <Natalie> (hahahaha)
  1245. [15:22:07] <Natalie> (WHY WAS SHE NOT STDING FOR US)
  1246. [15:22:35] <Kaingaskhan> Riese uses Recovery Reels! Cheat Fate... Jackpot! She tosses the flask of now green elixir at your feet, and it shatters, splashing everyone!
  1247. [15:22:45] <Kaingaskhan> 100% recovery HP and MP, you're going to need this.
  1248. [15:22:47] * Natalie cringes with an "nnnnf."
  1249. [15:22:57] <Natalie> (does she get her destiny back?  huh huh?)
  1250. [15:23:00] <Kaingaskhan> 1,1 1d2
  1251. [15:23:04] <Kaingaskhan> 1d2
  1252. [15:23:05] <DiceMaid-9001> Kaingaskhan, 1d2: 1 [1d2=1]
  1253. [15:23:08] <Kaingaskhan> yes she does
  1254. [15:23:13] <Natalie> fuck yeah
  1255. [15:23:23] <Theta> "Oh, convienent."
  1256. [15:23:32] <Amaryllis> "Thank you Lady Riese." Ammy helps Nat up.
  1257. [15:23:34] <Kaingaskhan> Riese: "I'm sorry, are you all alright? Thank you so much..."
  1258. [15:23:36] * Natalie HOPS up and wipes herself off. "See! Nothing to worry about at all!"
  1259. [15:23:44] <Natalie> "... Ow still, kinda."
  1260. [15:23:48] <Natalie> "But thanks!"
  1261. [15:23:49] <Kaingaskhan> Riese: "It's I who should be thanking you for rescuing me." she bows. "I'm in your debt."
  1262. [15:23:52] <Kaingaskhan> thump
  1263. [15:23:56] <Kaingaskhan> Huh?
  1264. [15:23:58] <Kaingaskhan> What was that?
  1265. [15:24:02] <Kaingaskhan> Thump.
  1266. [15:24:06] <Kaingaskhan> The entire room shakes a moment.
  1267. [15:24:06] <@Lenore> "E-eh?"
  1268. [15:24:13] <Kaingaskhan> CRACK
  1269. [15:24:17] <Natalie> "... Don't think that's me."
  1270. [15:24:23] <Kaingaskhan> KAPOW
  1271. [15:24:29] <Kaingaskhan> The northern wall suddenly explodes apart!
  1272. [15:24:53] * Natalie crosses her fingers, "pleasebethecrystalogrepleasebethecrystalogrepleasebethecrystalogre..."
  1273. [15:24:56] <@Lenore> (herewego)
  1274. [15:25:22] <Kaingaskhan> and an enormous Ogre strides in from the outside, at least twenty feet tall! Instead of a neat hat it has a helmet made of spiky, jaggy crystals, and its swords are made out of polished and honed gemstone! Blood splatters line its coat as it roars, stomping into the room.
  1275. [15:25:24] <Theta> "I'd be willing to bet that is the one that ate it, yes"
  1276. [15:25:38] * Celina says nothing, just grabs her weapon and gets ready to fiiiight
  1277. [15:25:48] <Kaingaskhan> As the room shakes, the console comes on and the hologram projector starts up, sending images of Terra and Gaia flying around the room.
  1278. [15:25:49] * @Lenore gets into her typical goofy combat stance.
  1279. [15:26:00] <Kaingaskhan> Combat
  1280. [15:26:03] <Natalie> "Nnn... I still kinda hurt everywhere.  Leeny, lemme know when you do your breath stuff, 'kay?"
  1281. [15:26:06] <Kaingaskhan> http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UBlxpPfUcuk
  1282. [15:26:27] <Celina> "I've got a better idea, first."
  1283. [15:26:33] <Kaingaskhan> Though as combat starts... the camera shifts behind you all, to another face!
  1284. [15:26:57] <@Lenore> Well, goofier than usual because she doesn't really know how to fight barehanded.  Still does it better than with her staff.  Somehow.
  1285. [15:27:02] <Amaryllis> (teamwork?)
  1286. [15:27:03] <Natalie> (sup necron)
  1287. [15:27:20] <Amaryllis> "That would indeed be our mark."
  1288. [15:27:29] <Natalie> (but yeah of course)
  1289. [15:27:40] <Kaingaskhan> Stiltzkin: "Just a sec! I was thinking about what you said, and you're right. My story isn't over yet!" The camera zooms in on the moogle's face. "I used to do all sorts of odd jobs, so here we go..." He glares defiantly at the giant ogre, then turns to Lenore.
  1290. [15:27:42] <Natalie> (... I don't keep the boosts from last fight, righ- nah that's silly)
  1291. [15:27:43] <Kaingaskhan> Stiltzkin: "Interaction tutorial, kupo!"
  1292. [15:27:53] <Celina> (stiltzkin <3)
  1293. [15:27:56] <@Lenore> "Gotcha'!"
  1294. [15:27:57] <Natalie> (OH KAINY YOU RIDICULOUS BASTARD)
  1295. [15:28:03] <Amaryllis> (this is a new fight, right? resets count of per combat things?)
  1296. [15:28:06] <@Lenore> (awww yeah)
  1297. [15:28:10] <Natalie> (worth a try!)
  1298. [15:28:13] <Amaryllis> (ooh)
  1299. [15:28:27] <@Lenore> "Teach me teacher!"
  1300. [15:28:31] <Kaingaskhan> Stiltzkin: "You're a mage, right? So you can't do much in this antimagic field! But you can still work that machine! Try and see if you can manipulate the holograms to distract him!"
  1301. [15:28:49] <Natalie> "Oh, does she need this?"  Natty fishes out the stone.
  1302. [15:28:53] <Kaingaskhan> The Interact command has become available for Lenore!
  1303. [15:29:02] <Kaingaskhan> Stiltzkin: "Don't think so!"
  1304. [15:29:02] <Natalie> "I was just kinda gonna chuck it at his face, buuuuuut..."
  1305. [15:29:05] <Natalie> "Nnnnnnn."
  1306. [15:29:20] <Celina> (guys can I go first this turn can I can I guys guys)
  1307. [15:29:24] <Kaingaskhan> Stiltzkin: "Good luck!"
  1308. [15:29:25] <@Lenore> "On it!  Do your best guys!"
  1309. [15:29:27] <Natalie> (go for it)
  1310. [15:29:30] <Amaryllis> (Sure)
  1311. [15:29:50] * Celina lashes out with the dancer's ribbon, hooking one of the ogre's swords and YANKING
  1312. [15:29:51] <Natalie> "Don't worry, I feel better than ever!  It'll take more than some wimpy stabs to stop me!"
  1313. [15:30:01] <Celina> 2d6+5 opposed finesse for disarm maneuver
  1314. [15:30:02] <DiceMaid-9001> Celina, opposed finesse for disarm maneuver: 13 [2d6=2,6]
  1315. [15:30:02] <Amaryllis> (oh right, disarming was a thing)
  1316. [15:30:10] <Natalie> "... Like a whole bunch of wimpy stabs!"
  1317. [15:30:11] <@Lenore> (:O)
  1318. [15:30:13] <Kaingaskhan> 2d6+4 Clever

  1324. [15:30:35] <Natalie> (do it, you know you want to)
  1325. [15:30:38] <@Lenore> (DO IT)
  1326. [15:30:44] <Celina> but I need that destiny to jobchange and stop sucking at force rolls
  1327. [15:30:44] <Celina> ;_;
  1328. [15:30:49] <Natalie> (1,1it'll be a 1)
  1329. [15:30:56] <Celina> 1d6 FINE
  1330. [15:30:57] <DiceMaid-9001> Celina, FINE: 3 [1d6=3]
  1331. [15:31:03] <Natalie> (I AM DISPROVEN)
  1332. [15:31:03] <@Lenore> (This game doesn't have nearly enough spending destiny for awesome)
  1333. [15:31:04] <Kaingaskhan> actually
  1334. [15:31:08] <Amaryllis> (can Riese stacked deck against the ogre for us? well...okay that)
  1335. [15:31:10] <Kaingaskhan> Keep your destiny
  1336. [15:31:13] <Celina> okay o:
  1337. [15:31:15] <Kaingaskhan> Riese will Stacked Deck
  1338. [15:31:17] <Kaingaskhan> the 2

  1340. [15:31:26] <Celina> yay
  1341. [15:31:28] <Kaingaskhan> and attacker wins tie
  1342. [15:31:34] * Celina yanks one of the swords away then !!!!
  1343. [15:31:41] <Kaingaskhan> Oh by the way
  1344. [15:31:50] <Amaryllis> "Well done, Lady Celina."
  1345. [15:31:50] <Natalie> ... What kind of swords are they?
  1346. [15:31:52] <Kaingaskhan> End Boss Encounter - Crystal Titan: Ogre Overlord
  1347. [15:32:01] <Celina> (gemstone apparently)
  1348. [15:32:07] <Kaingaskhan> Fuck huge crystal greatswords to you
  1349. [15:32:11] <Kaingaskhan> knives to him
  1350. [15:32:13] <Amaryllis> (...wieldable?)
  1351. [15:32:15] <Natalie> (^)
  1352. [15:32:18] <@Lenore> (^)
  1353. [15:32:18] <Kaingaskhan> I'd say yes!
  1354. [15:32:26] <Kaingaskhan> Ogre Overlord is disarmed
  1355. [15:32:30] <@Lenore> (Who's got Huge?)
  1356. [15:32:31] <Kaingaskhan> Lost access to multiweapon!
  1357. [15:32:39] <Amaryllis> "Hand me the sword!"
  1358. [15:32:44] <Natalie> (I wish white mage still had huge ;~;)
  1359. [15:32:50] <@Lenore> (;_;)
  1360. [15:32:51] <Celina> (Ammy does!)
  1361. [15:33:07] * Celina flicks the sword over in Ammy's direction.
  1362. [15:33:09] <@Lenore> (Natty would be pretty cool with a greatsword or hammer)
  1363. [15:33:14] <Natalie> "Careful, don't get smacked with it!"
  1364. [15:33:18] <Natalie> (she's sue enough as it is though)
  1365. [15:33:29] <@Lenore> (True)
  1366. [15:33:31] <Kaingaskhan> Okay who's going next
  1367. [15:34:28] * Amaryllis snatches up the sword and tests its weight. Surprisingly, she's able to lift it well enough to wield. She mutters under her breath and then readies the sword, nodding to Nat.
  1368. [15:34:34] <@Lenore> 4In7t8e3r2a6ct!
  1369. [15:34:34] <Natalie> (I still have no weapon so I'm just 'do team attack bonuses' here, but LET'S GO)
  1370. [15:34:58] * Natalie nods back and moves forward to the ogre's legs! One sweep kick might do the trick...
  1371. [15:35:06] <Celina> (after I finish disarming the fucker you can borrow the ribbon)
  1372. [15:35:16] <Natalie> (Depends on Kainy if I can do it this turn)
  1373. [15:35:38] <Natalie> (Like.... when throwing the sword she accidentally throws the ribbon too)
  1374. [15:35:38] * Amaryllis hangs back to follow up Nat's attack with a swing of the hueg sword, as soon as the opening presents itself.
  1375. [15:35:40] <Natalie> (isn't that cute)
  1376. [15:36:00] <Celina> (it's still got a weapon though)
  1377. [15:36:01] <Kaingaskhan> ROLL'EM
  1378. [15:36:07] <Celina> (I haven't finished disarming)
  1379. [15:36:09] <Natalie> (Oh, FINISHES)
  1380. [15:36:11] <Natalie> (I see)
  1381. [15:36:14] <Natalie> 2d6+2 here we go then!
  1382. [15:36:16] <DiceMaid-9001> Natalie, here we go then!: 14 [2d6=6,6]
  1383. [15:36:16] <Amaryllis> (I thought you were handling Lenore's thing first)
  1384. [15:36:20] <Amaryllis> 2d6+3
  1385. [15:36:21] <DiceMaid-9001> Amaryllis, 2d6+3: 12 [2d6=4,5]
  1386. [15:36:24] <Natalie> ... Really should've borrowed it.
  1387. [15:36:33] <Amaryllis> 1d6 ?
  1388. [15:36:34] <DiceMaid-9001> Amaryllis, ?: 2 [1d6=2]
  1389. [15:36:37] <Amaryllis> :<
  1390. [15:36:43] <Amaryllis> (uh is this still part blade? Can I reliable hit?)
  1391. [15:36:44] <Natalie> ;~;
  1392. [15:36:49] <Kaingaskhan> Yes
  1393. [15:36:51] <Amaryllis> 2d6+3
  1394. [15:36:52] <DiceMaid-9001> Amaryllis, 2d6+3: 8 [2d6=1,4]
  1395. [15:36:56] <Natalie> (god daaaaaaammnn)
  1396. [15:37:00] <Amaryllis> (oh come on)
  1397. [15:37:02] <Kaingaskhan> 1d6 stacked deck that 1, LAST CHANCE DICE GODS
  1398. [15:37:03] <DiceMaid-9001> Kaingaskhan, stacked deck that 1, LAST CHANCE DICE GODS: 3 [1d6=3]
  1399. [15:37:11] <Natalie> dice gods status: mad
  1400. [15:37:20] <@Lenore> (destiny?)
  1401. [15:37:41] <Natalie> (I have 4 so I could safely spend one to try to match...)
  1402. [15:37:53] <Amaryllis> (with only a 1/6 chance that isn't nearly as good as a 1/3 chance)
  1403. [15:38:01] <Amaryllis> (statistically it's probably better for Nat to try to match)
  1404. [15:38:08] <Natalie> (Should I try it or leave it?)
  1405. [15:38:12] <Amaryllis> (Since I can choose either of my dice rolls with reliable hit)
  1406. [15:38:18] <Celina> (just stick to hitting the damn thing instead of matching rolls)
  1407. [15:38:19] <Amaryllis> (so, I'll leave that up to you since its your destiny)
  1408. [15:38:25] <@Lenore> (Dude, you really want to waste a crit?)
  1409. [15:38:34] <Celina> (^)
  1410. [15:38:36] <Natalie> (don't make me make decisions like this ;_______;)
  1411. [15:38:38] <Natalie> 1d6 FINE
  1412. [15:38:38] <@Lenore> (YOU GOTTA' FIGHT FOR THESE THINGS)
  1413. [15:38:39] <DiceMaid-9001> Natalie, FINE: 1 [1d6=1]
  1414. [15:39:03] <Kaingaskhan> 1d6 that's a different roll, I can try another stacked deck on it, last one though
  1415. [15:39:03] <DiceMaid-9001> Kaingaskhan, that's a different roll, I can try another stacked deck on it, last one though: 1 [1d6=1]
  1416. [15:39:13] <Natalie> (Colon less than.)
  1417. [15:39:15] <Kaingaskhan> 1d6 NO SOMETHING OTHER THAN A 1
  1418. [15:39:15] <DiceMaid-9001> Kaingaskhan, NO SOMETHING OTHER THAN A 1: 4 [1d6=4]
  1419. [15:39:17] <Celina> (okay you two are banned from teamwork attacks :I)
  1420. [15:39:26] <@Lenore> (THERE)
  1421. [15:39:30] <Amaryllis> (we hit with all of them last battle, stop making a big deal of it :<)
  1422. [15:39:38] <Theta> (It's not like)
  1423. [15:39:44] <Natalie> (man we're so silly)
  1424. [15:39:45] <Theta> (Them attacking seperate will magically improve their luck)
  1425. [15:39:53] <Theta> (Let them do as they want specially if they got assloads of rerolls)
  1426. [15:40:02] <Kaingaskhan> As for the crystal sword
  1427. [15:40:08] <Kaingaskhan> It's tier 3 Piercing
  1428. [15:40:18] <Kaingaskhan> yes, piercing
  1429. [15:40:23] <Celina> (but the fact that they're fucking over their own rolls is a problem)
  1430. [15:40:37] <Theta> (it's their characters.)
  1431. [15:40:39] <Amaryllis> 49 piercing!
  1432. [15:40:41] <Theta> (Let them.)
  1433. [15:40:41] <Natalie> With the ribbon that'd be like in the hundreds or some crazy shit, it's ACTUALLY only 40 now.
  1434. [15:40:49] <Natalie> (yeah go argue somewhere else if you must)
  1435. [15:40:54] <Natalie> 40 non-piercing.
  1436. [15:41:07] <@Lenore> (THWACK)
  1437. [15:41:09] <Amaryllis> With a bit of fumbling, Ammy manages a competent if awkward blow with the sword!
  1438. [15:41:14] <Kaingaskhan> WHAM SLICE SLAM
  1439. [15:41:24] <Celina> (I'm just going to say that this game isn't just about their characters and leave it at that)
  1440. [15:41:36] <Kaingaskhan> (Okay enough of that)
  1441. [15:41:39] <Natalie> (^)
  1442. [15:41:40] <Theta> (???)
  1443. [15:41:42] <Amaryllis> (can you please not try to backseat control us in combat?)
  1444. [15:41:45] <Kaingaskhan> (I will put you people in time out)
  1445. [15:41:52] <Celina> (can you please try to actually do things that work?)
  1446. [15:41:54] <Theta> Theta is extremely predictable
  1447. [15:41:56] <Natalie> (yeah, seriously go argue in #mans or some other place built for it)
  1448. [15:42:00] <Theta> he just swings more lightning bolts.
  1449. [15:42:04] <Theta> 2d6+2
  1450. [15:42:05] <DiceMaid-9001> Theta, 2d6+2: 11 [2d6=4,5]
  1451. [15:42:23] <Theta> 33 electric damage
  1452. [15:42:58] <@Lenore> 4In7t8e3r2a6c13t!  Lenore runs up to the console and tries to manipulate it!  She's not too familiar with this sort of thing, but she's gonna' try her damnedest to get it to work, even if it requires trial and error! (Systems check?)
  1453. [15:43:00] <Kaingaskhan> Okaaay noted
  1454. [15:43:12] <Natalie> fjdsljfld
  1455. [15:43:17] <Natalie> IMPORTANT DETAIL FORGOTTEN
  1456. [15:43:30] <Natalie> While tripping him Natty CANNOT POSSIBLY FORGET to scream attack names
  1457. [15:43:37] <Natalie> "1,1Climax of the Tower!!"
  1458. [15:43:40] <Natalie> ... okay continue
  1459. [15:44:11] <Kaingaskhan> Let's see what your skills are
  1460. [15:44:49] <Kaingaskhan> Hmmm
  1461. [15:44:51] <Kaingaskhan> Roll Lore Magic
  1462. [15:45:27] <@Lenore> 3d6+4 Spending one Destiny to make sure she gets this extra right!
  1463. [15:45:27] <DiceMaid-9001> Lenore, Spending one Destiny to make sure she gets this extra right!: 12 [3d6=2,4,2]
  1464. [15:45:39] <Amaryllis> (crueltymaid)
  1465. [15:46:00] <Celina> (you can do it lenny ;_;)
  1466. [15:46:19] <Kaingaskhan> You play around with the machine, using what you THINK you recognize as arcane patterns to identify the machine's function, and you make the planet holograms fly around all up in the thing's face!
  1467. [15:46:47] <Kaingaskhan> It growls, flailing and taking a -1 to ACC and a -2 to opposed checks!
  1468. [15:46:57] <Kaingaskhan> Enemy turn
  1469. [15:47:03] <Kaingaskhan> It begins a slow action...
  1470. [15:47:07] <Kaingaskhan> Player turns!
  1471. [15:47:13] <Amaryllis> (>slow action)
  1472. [15:47:15] <Natalie> "Nnnnnot okay."
  1473. [15:47:16] <Natalie> BOOST
  1474. [15:47:17] <Amaryllis> (awwww hellll nawwww)
  1475. [15:47:27] <Celina> (chill out I got this)
  1476. [15:47:30] <Celina> "Natalie!"
  1477. [15:47:32] <@Lenore> (PUMMEL THAT FUCKER)
  1478. [15:47:33] <Celina> "Heads up!"
  1479. [15:47:34] <Natalie> "Yeah!"
  1480. [15:47:38] * Celina tosses her the ribbon!
  1481. [15:47:45] <Celina> "It's up to you now!"
  1482. [15:47:47] * Natalie raises a foot to the air and catches it, spinning it around!
  1483. [15:47:53] <Natalie> "Don't worry, I won't miss!"
  1484. [15:48:00] <Natalie> (So you're not disarming him?)
  1485. [15:48:17] <Celina> (nope, sealing him is probably more important at this point)
  1486. [15:48:25] <Theta> (Question: Are these holograms mechanical or magical in nature?  Errrr that's a dumb way to ask it.)
  1487. [15:48:26] <Celina> (because slow action)
  1488. [15:48:34] <Amaryllis> (MAGITECH)
  1489. [15:48:43] <Natalie> (Yeah, okay, it's up to ammy whether it's really worth trying to stop his slow action then)
  1490. [15:48:50] <Celina> (clang clang clang clang magitech armor)
  1491. [15:48:59] <Celina> (how about I go before you two and we'll see if it's needed)
  1492. [15:49:03] <Amaryllis> (we'll see if the seal succeeds)
  1493. [15:49:03] <Celina> (if not, you can disarm)
  1494. [15:49:08] <Celina> (^)
  1495. [15:49:10] <Natalie> (good plan)
  1496. [15:49:13] <Celina> 2d6+3 HORK
  1497. [15:49:14] <DiceMaid-9001> Celina, HORK: 7 [2d6=1,3]
  1498. [15:49:18] <Celina> that probably misses
  1499. [15:49:24] <Celina> it's all you two
  1500. [15:49:26] <Kaingaskhan> yes that is a miss my good rat
  1501. [15:49:30] <Theta> (Is this particular section of the ruins unique in any other way?  Basically seeing if there's another biome I can draw from.)
  1502. [15:49:43] <Kaingaskhan> Not particularly sorry
  1503. [15:49:45] <Natalie> (Then I'll totally disarm instead of teaming, what if Lenny and PRICKLES try to team him?)
  1504. [15:50:00] <Kaingaskhan> and it's all technology but technology is just magic that can't be antimagiced anyway
  1505. [15:50:03] <Theta> (Well sorry guys these low damage hits are about all I -can- do without something noncombatty.)
  1506. [15:50:03] <Amaryllis> (I'll hold to attempt disarm if Nat fails)
  1507. [15:50:03] <Celina> (;_;)
  1508. [15:50:11] <Natalie> Okay!
  1509. [15:50:17] <Celina> (also >low damage)
  1510. [15:50:20] <Amaryllis> (can you try to put pillars in its way?)
  1511. [15:50:20] <Kaingaskhan> Theta is doing more damage than he realizes
  1512. [15:50:32] <Natalie> 2d6+5 Nat SWINGS the ribbon toward the other sword in the ogre's hand, then!
  1513. [15:50:33] <Amaryllis> (also, m. arm probably helps. I imagine ogre is phys def oriented)
  1514. [15:50:33] <Kaingaskhan> Also Theta
  1515. [15:50:33] <DiceMaid-9001> Natalie, Nat SWINGS the ribbon toward the other sword in the ogre's hand, then!: 16 [2d6=5,6]
  1516. [15:50:36] <Kaingaskhan> roll Lore Monsters for me
  1517. [15:50:38] <Celina> (YES)
  1518. [15:50:40] <Celina> (YESSSSSSSS)
  1519. [15:50:40] <Natalie> (~)
  1520. [15:50:45] <@Lenore> (HAHA AWESOME)
  1521. [15:50:55] <Natalie> (god we really need someone to be a gambler and double up this goddamn ribbon)
  1522. [15:51:07] <Celina> (double up copies fade in seconds ;_;)
  1523. [15:51:16] <Natalie> (if they leave the wielder's hand)
  1524. [15:51:18] <Kaingaskhan> 2d6+2 opposed finesse right
  1525. [15:51:19] <DiceMaid-9001> Kaingaskhan, opposed finesse right: 10 [2d6=6,2]
  1526. [15:51:21] <Natalie> (1,1foot in this case)
  1527. [15:51:25] <Natalie> Yeah, finesse, sorry
  1528. [15:51:28] <Theta> (I do arms damage though)
  1529. [15:51:30] <Celina> (anyway I need to dinner, so someone can puppet Celina)
  1530. [15:51:32] <Kaingaskhan> And the other crystal blade gets yoinked from his hand!
  1531. [15:51:39] <Theta> 2d6+3
  1532. [15:51:39] <DiceMaid-9001> Theta, 2d6+3: 9 [2d6=5,1]
  1533. [15:51:48] <Theta> (That was the monster lore sorry.)
  1534. [15:51:49] <Celina> (she'll just lightning bolt for as long as nattychan ribbons)
  1535. [15:51:55] * Natalie yanks it out. "Okay, who wants to borrow this?"
  1536. [15:51:56] <Kaingaskhan> Hm, you think this ogre's clothes might be somewhat flammable
  1537. [15:52:11] <Kaingaskhan> The ogre roars in rage as it's completely disarmed!
  1538. [15:52:12] <Amaryllis> "Give it to Theta."
  1539. [15:52:19] <Kaingaskhan> Its most powerful attack has been disabled
  1540. [15:52:23] <Natalie> "Mr. Omicron!  Heaaaads up!"
  1541. [15:52:30] * Natalie flingu~
  1542. [15:52:38] <Kaingaskhan> (Would you like to know what its most powerful attack rolls)
  1543. [15:52:42] <Theta> (You guys realize I can't use huge right)
  1544. [15:52:49] <Amaryllis> (it's blade, not huge)
  1545. [15:52:49] <Kaingaskhan> (It's a Blade)
  1546. [15:52:50] <Natalie> (I thought it was blade/huge)
  1547. [15:52:54] <Natalie> (... or JUST blade)
  1548. [15:52:57] <Amaryllis> (just)
  1549. [15:53:00] <Natalie> (justice)
  1550. [15:53:04] <Kaingaskhan> (Anyway the attack you just disabled is 1,1 2d6+189  )
  1551. [15:53:12] <Natalie> (oh I could survive that)
  1552. [15:53:16] <Natalie> (1,1lol just kidding)
  1553. [15:53:44] <Amaryllis> 2d6+3 swiping at it with the crystal sword
  1554. [15:53:45] <DiceMaid-9001> Amaryllis, swiping at it with the crystal sword: 12 [2d6=6,3]
  1555. [15:53:52] <Kaingaskhan> Theta can catch a tier 3 piercing blade if he wants!
  1556. [15:53:53] <Kaingaskhan> Hit!
  1557. [15:53:56] <@Lenore> Lenore interacts with the machinery again!  She's HOPING to make a hologram of a ship look like it's going to crash into the thing's face, but haha like she's figured this thing out completely yet.
  1558. [15:54:04] <Amaryllis> 45 piercing!
  1559. [15:54:17] <Kaingaskhan> roll me systems this time Lenore
  1560. [15:54:19] * Natalie spins around in ways that would make a Velbaysian from a totally different canon jealous. "I'll give it back in a second, promise!"
  1561. [15:54:39] <Theta> He waits for it to land first before scooping it up, grabbing a midflight sword is dangerous you know!
  1562. [15:54:43] <@Lenore> 3d6 Spending ANOTHER Destiny, this is the last one I swear
  1563. [15:54:43] <DiceMaid-9001> Lenore, Spending ANOTHER Destiny, this is the last one I swear: 5 [3d6=1,3,1]
  1564. [15:54:49] <@Lenore> (;_;)
  1565. [15:54:53] <Natalie> (Semicolon tilde semicolon.)
  1566. [15:54:53] <Kaingaskhan> You get an 8-bit chocobo instead
  1567. [15:54:57] <Kaingaskhan> it goes by completely unnoticed
  1568. [15:55:22] <Theta> And then he tries a new and improved Plasma beam!

  1572. [15:55:35] <Theta> 39 damage
  1573. [15:55:39] <Amaryllis> (pew pew mesmer beamu)
  1574. [15:55:46] <Theta> (pretty much)
  1575. [15:56:08] <Theta> (What's it, their 4? The block projectiles and chuck beams at people)
  1576. [15:56:25] <Kaingaskhan> I think that's erryone?
  1577. [15:56:32] <Natalie> Except for Mr. Prickles.
  1578. [15:56:43] <Kaingaskhan> Prickles is leaking cactus juice in the corner
  1579. [15:56:46] <Natalie> ;_;
  1580. [15:56:46] <Amaryllis> (4 on greatsword is...illusionary berserker IIRC)
  1581. [15:56:48] <Theta> "If we could ignite it's clothing it would probably prove useful!"
  1582. [15:56:51] <Kaingaskhan> Let's see
  1583. [15:56:54] <Theta> (I meant 1h swords)
  1584. [15:57:08] <Kaingaskhan> didn't stop its slow action
  1585. [15:57:29] <Kaingaskhan> Call Minions!
  1586. [15:57:35] <Kaingaskhan> Two Ogres show up out of the hole in the wall.
  1587. [15:57:48] <Amaryllis> (sonuvabitch)
  1588. [15:57:58] <Natalie> (hmm, I can mach kick if I hit one more time)
  1589. [15:58:09] <Amaryllis> (teamwork or no then?)
  1590. [15:58:19] <Kaingaskhan> It begins another slow action.
  1591. [15:58:20] <Natalie> (I'll leave it up to you, it's 100% luck)
  1592. [15:58:20] <Kaingaskhan> Because
  1593. [15:58:24] <Kaingaskhan> the boss actually has auto-slow
  1594. [15:58:26] <Theta> "I'll handle his posse, I suppose."
  1595. [15:58:28] <Theta> "You keep him occupied."
  1596. [15:58:32] <Amaryllis> (slow action, we need to interrupt)
  1597. [15:58:37] <Natalie> "Good luck!"
  1598. [15:58:41] <Kaingaskhan> Ammy!
  1599. [15:58:48] <Amaryllis> held for teamwork!

  1601. [15:59:04] <Amaryllis> 2d6+3 here's Celina's breath, let's do fire sure
  1602. [15:59:05] <DiceMaid-9001> Amaryllis, here's Celina's breath, let's do fire sure: 12 [2d6=6,3]
  1603. [15:59:07] <Natalie> (... I mean it's like no damage)

  1613. [15:59:58] <DiceMaid-9001> Kaingaskhan, even with -2 opposed roll force is still pretty...: 12 [2d6=2,1]
  1614. [16:00:05] <Kaingaskhan> ALMOST a crit fail
  1615. [16:00:18] <Amaryllis> (oh I thought it would've set them on fire to take recurring damage. Hmmm oh well)
  1616. [16:00:19] <Natalie> (man, I was betting he had +12, was SO CLOSE)
  1617. [16:00:26] <Kaingaskhan> Lenore!
  1618. [16:00:29] <Natalie> (nah, it's just blind)

  1628. [16:01:28] <Amaryllis> (Yeah but isn't it usually you have to burn their bodies to stop them regenerating? Or is that just trolls?)
  1629. [16:01:28] <Natalie> (yesssssss)
  1630. [16:01:29] <@Lenore> Aw yeah
  1631. [16:01:53] <Kaingaskhan> You bullshit your way through knowing the system and make the projector overload briefly, sending out an arc of lightning! ...Lightning?

  1641. [16:03:35] <DiceMaid-9001> Lenore, "Hah!  I'm such a good mage I can summon thunder in an anti-magic field!  Fear the power of the gods!"  It's part of the act.: 67 [2d6=5,2]

  1733. [16:12:00] <Kaingaskhan> and that's a miss
  1734. [16:12:02] <Amaryllis> (hold on, wanna decide if I want to spend destiny on this because the HP loss from a missed darkside is pretty bad)
  1735. [16:12:22] <Amaryllis> 2d6+3 elec breath though for Celina let's get that seal going

  1768. [16:15:41] <Kaingaskhan> good enough for another thunder
  1769. [16:15:56] * Natalie likes to imagine this as a strategic leap to the wall, followed by a triangle jump! It likely isn't actually that pretty.
  1770. [16:16:07] <Natalie> "Uhh, just one more try, Leeny!  I promise!"
  1771. [16:16:27] <@Lenore> 2d6+60 "Give it up!  I wield the power of the gods!"

  1783. [16:17:59] <Theta> (Ideally the same one he hit last turn)
  1784. [16:18:21] <Kaingaskhan> You slash another ogre with some lightnin'
  1785. [16:18:27] <Kaingaskhan> Ogres

  1796. [16:19:19] <Kaingaskhan> nothing doing, his sloppy, injured blows are easily parried.
  1797. [16:19:33] <Amaryllis> (recover hp!)
  1798. [16:19:35] <Theta> Theta seems to recover his momentum from the sparring!
  1799. [16:19:36] <Theta> (Yup)

  1804. [16:19:53] <@Lenore> (Wow that took off exactly half of her HP)

  1819. [16:21:22] <Amaryllis> (I'm gonna continue attacking because piercing)
  1820. [16:21:25] <Kaingaskhan> He's not immune to blind but it seems to have a lesser effect.
  1821. [16:21:30] <Amaryllis> (er, it was seal)
  1822. [16:21:34] <Kaingaskhan> Oh

  1850. [16:23:18] <Kaingaskhan> As you fail your teamwork attack
  1851. [16:23:23] <Kaingaskhan> The Ogre Overlord grabs both of you
  1852. [16:23:27] <Kaingaskhan> And slams you together
  1853. [16:23:27] <Natalie> ... wait can you really counter misses?

  1864. [16:24:17] <Natalie> (still 32 left we're fine)
  1865. [16:24:29] <Amaryllis> "Aaugh!" Ammy crumples, but when she shakily gets up, there's a dangerous glint in her eye. SOS-haste!
  1866. [16:24:37] <@Lenore> "No!  I'm taking you down!"  FURIOUS LEVER PULLING AND INTERACTING
  1867. [16:24:43] <Natalie> "Nnng!  O-Okay I lied, one more!"
  1868. [16:24:46] <Amaryllis> (11 HP :<)
  1869. [16:25:05] <Kaingaskhan> What skill you rolling Lenore?
  1870. [16:25:10] <@Lenore> Acting!

  1874. [16:25:33] <Kaingaskhan> Thundercats hooooo
  1875. [16:26:05] <Amaryllis> (Maybe hit all this time?)
  1876. [16:26:12] <Amaryllis> (maybe it will kill the injured one)
  1877. [16:26:18] <Natalie> (yeah, that's a good plan)
  1878. [16:26:38] <@Lenore> 2d6+36 "Your actions have incited the wrath of the heavens!  All of you, repent for your sins!"
  1879. [16:26:39] <DiceMaid-9001> Lenore, "Your actions have incited the wrath of the heavens!  All of you, repent for your sins!": 43 [2d6=5,2]
  1880. [16:26:57] <@Lenore> That's hitall
  1881. [16:27:09] <Kaingaskhan> And one Ogre down!
  1882. [16:27:22] <Kaingaskhan> THETA
  1883. [16:27:36] * Theta seems confused a second. "Weird, that wasn't mine. Oh - Lenore did that! Right, then," he turns to the othre small ogre
  1884. [16:27:38] <Theta> 2d6+2 pewpew
  1885. [16:27:39] <DiceMaid-9001> Theta, pewpew: 8 [2d6=4,2]

  1897. [16:29:26] <Kaingaskhan> Ogre Overlord
  1898. [16:29:33] * Natalie pauses the action to walk over and wrap the ribbon around the rat, patting her down nicely, before walking back over and getting stabbed.
  1899. [16:29:39] <Kaingaskhan> It suddenly stops bellowing, and stands still, perfectly calm.
  1900. [16:29:42] <Natalie> ... Okay maybe not really, but she wishes it were that pleasant.
  1901. [16:29:46] <Kaingaskhan> And it internalizes its volcanic rage.
  1902. [16:29:58] <Kaingaskhan> Bright pink light begins pouring out from its skin and clothes.
  1903. [16:30:06] <Kaingaskhan> And violet lightning bolts start crackling across its skin.
  1904. [16:30:14] <Kaingaskhan> http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VQ3MKtNSOLQ
  1905. [16:30:15] <Amaryllis> "Nat!" Ammy clenches her teeth as she sees the thing do oh god what is even this
  1906. [16:30:24] <Kaingaskhan> Stiltzkin: "T-that light..."
  1907. [16:30:28] <Kaingaskhan> Stiltzkin: "It's using a Trance!"
  1908. [16:30:31] <Natalie> "Just a little... nnnnnap..."
  1909. [16:30:34] <@Lenore> "A what!?"
  1910. [16:30:47] <Kaingaskhan> Auto-slow broken
  1911. [16:30:52] <Kaingaskhan> Auto-Berserk applied
  1912. [16:30:56] <Kaingaskhan> Fearsome gained
  1913. [16:31:19] <Kaingaskhan> Destiny #1
  1914. [16:31:22] <Theta> "A what now?"
  1915. [16:31:25] <Kaingaskhan> 2d6+11 Force Disarm on Amaryllis
  1916. [16:31:26] <DiceMaid-9001> Kaingaskhan, Force Disarm on Amaryllis: 19 [2d6=5,3]
  1917. [16:31:27] <Theta> "Oh my he is quite flush."
  1918. [16:31:29] <Kaingaskhan> Opposed please
  1919. [16:31:34] <Amaryllis> 2d6+6 bollocks
  1920. [16:31:35] <DiceMaid-9001> Amaryllis, bollocks: 11 [2d6=2,3]
  1921. [16:31:48] <Kaingaskhan> He slaps Ammaryllis aside and takes back one of his blades.
  1922. [16:31:54] <Kaingaskhan> 2d6+11 Now on Theta with Destiny #2
  1923. [16:31:54] <DiceMaid-9001> Kaingaskhan, Now on Theta with Destiny #2: 16 [2d6=3,2]
  1924. [16:32:58] <Kaingaskhan> Theta?
  1925. [16:33:04] <Kaingaskhan> Opposed force if you would
  1926. [16:33:20] <Theta> 2d6+5
  1927. [16:33:20] <DiceMaid-9001> Theta, 2d6+5: 9 [2d6=1,3]
  1928. [16:33:29] <Kaingaskhan> Theta gets similarly pimpslapped
  1929. [16:33:34] <Kaingaskhan> Multiweapon regained
  1930. [16:33:46] <Kaingaskhan> Killer Blow regained
  1931. [16:33:48] <Kaingaskhan> Player turns
  1932. [16:33:55] <Natalie> (yo dogs make the rat jump)
  1933. [16:33:56] <@Lenore> "Nnnnngh!  What can we do..."
  1934. [16:33:59] * Theta suddenly finds himself disarmed. "...Right, was not my weapon."
  1935. [16:34:22] <Amaryllis> Celina rushes over and picks up her ribbon again with a leap into the air!
  1936. [16:34:36] <Kaingaskhan> Oh and
  1937. [16:34:41] <Kaingaskhan> The other remaining Ogre?
  1938. [16:34:43] <Amaryllis> (how close is the second ogre to going down?)
  1939. [16:34:44] <Kaingaskhan> He flees like a bitch
  1940. [16:34:47] <Amaryllis> (oh okay)
  1941. [16:35:11] * Amaryllis draws her brute sword. (tree should I phoenix down you or do you think someone else should?)
  1942. [16:35:31] <Kaingaskhan> Stiltzkin: "They say Trance is a power born of emotion... it gives strong individuals power in times of need! This is terrible!"
  1943. [16:35:36] <Natalie> (Well, Lenny's thunder is % based so if she has one that's the best option, you're still pretty up there as far as damage goes)
  1944. [16:35:38] <Theta> (Don't have one.)
  1945. [16:35:50] <Celina> (I'm back)
  1946. [16:35:52] <Amaryllis> (your call then Aori)
  1947. [16:36:11] <Amaryllis> (you're jumped Celina, because ogre just went trance)
  1948. [16:36:15] <Celina> (awsome)
  1949. [16:36:19] <Natalie> (and I just got ko'd)
  1950. [16:36:27] <Celina> (not awesome)
  1951. [16:36:31] <Natalie> (on the bright side, you sealed the fuck out of everything)
  1952. [16:36:45] <Amaryllis> (Theta go while we're deliberating I guess)
  1953. [16:37:13] <@Lenore> "S-strong emotion?"  She grips her fist tightly.  "Anyone can do that, Stiltzken?"
  1954. [16:37:21] <Amaryllis> Eh, fuck it, Ammy rushes over and gently presses a Phoenix Down into Nat's side. One standard action remaining.
  1955. [16:37:38] <Natalie> (oh right you have SOS-haste hurr durr)
  1956. [16:37:48] <Natalie> "Nnnnnnnn."
  1957. [16:38:09] <Amaryllis> "Our story shall not end here." (want a potion too?)
  1958. [16:38:17] <Theta> 2d6+2 moar lightning on tranceogre?
  1959. [16:38:17] <DiceMaid-9001> Theta, moar lightning on tranceogre?: 14 [2d6=6,6]
  1960. [16:38:21] <Theta> hah.
  1961. [16:38:23] <Theta> RATHER
  1962. [16:38:24] <Natalie> (I don't have any ARM so actually getting hit at all is a KO, don't worry)
  1963. [16:38:24] <Kaingaskhan> NOT LIGHTNING
  1964. [16:38:26] <Kaingaskhan> DEAR QUARK
  1965. [16:38:33] <Kaingaskhan> MAELSTROM EMPEROR THETA
  1966. [16:38:39] <Theta> Theta sends a wall of holy flame at the creature!
  1967. [16:38:47] <Amaryllis> (oh shit, it's fire damage is it? :D)
  1968. [16:38:56] <Celina> (Isn't it non-elemen)
  1969. [16:38:59] <Theta> 78 non-elemental damage, actually
  1970. [16:39:05] <Amaryllis> (damnit)
  1971. [16:39:15] <Theta> (Dust is dumb what can I say V:)
  1972. [16:39:22] <Theta> (White holy fire = non-elemental dmg)
  1973. [16:39:30] <Kaingaskhan> SPIRIT FLAMES WASH OVER THE TRANCE OGRE
  1974. [16:39:34] <Kaingaskhan> What next
  1975. [16:39:43] <Celina> (is it my turn to come down?)
  1976. [16:39:52] <Kaingaskhan> (No they made you jump this turn)
  1977. [16:39:53] <Celina> (or did I just go up :3)
  1978. [16:39:55] <Celina> (okay)
  1979. [16:39:57] <Kaingaskhan> (:3c)
  1980. [16:40:04] <Amaryllis> 2d6+3 last standard action to swipe at the ogre
  1981. [16:40:05] <DiceMaid-9001> Amaryllis, last standard action to swipe at the ogre: 13 [2d6=6,4]
  1982. [16:40:06] <Kaingaskhan> (Also)
  1983. [16:40:11] <Natalie> (I still get an action after coming back up, yeah?)
  1984. [16:40:11] <Kaingaskhan> (This marks the first boss battle)
  1985. [16:40:15] <Amaryllis> 38 arm damage
  1986. [16:40:17] <Kaingaskhan> (I've actually used the FFIX  boss battle theme in)
  1987. [16:40:27] <Kaingaskhan> (So you know it's on now)
  1988. [16:40:31] <Kaingaskhan> (And yes Nat)
  1989. [16:40:37] <Natalie> (kk)
  1990. [16:40:49] <Natalie> "Nnn, okay.  I won't lose!"
  1991. [16:40:57] <Natalie> 2d6+2 facekick, I think boosts reset
  1992. [16:40:58] <DiceMaid-9001> Natalie, facekick, I think boosts reset: 10 [2d6=3,5]
  1993. [16:41:11] <Kaingaskhan> Hit!
  1994. [16:41:14] <Natalie> please don't tell me he gained a bunch of AVD- okay awesome
  1995. [16:41:20] <Natalie> 16 wimpy ARM damage!
  1996. [16:41:25] <Natalie> AND BOOST
  1997. [16:41:41] <Kaingaskhan> Lenore!
  1998. [16:42:12] * @Lenore closes her eyes and thinks a bit. Magic didn't work here, yet Theta's did. The elements were still there. Everything was manipulatable if only one could concentrate on it. Trance, huh? She had no idea how to do THAT thing, but she knew that what they were doing wasn't going to be enough...She opens them and starts madly pretending she knows what she's doing. Like always, right?
  1999. [16:42:16] <@Lenore> 2d6+2 Acting
  2000. [16:42:16] <DiceMaid-9001> Lenore, Acting: 10 [2d6=4,4]
  2001. [16:42:29] <Kaingaskhan> Nnnn
  2002. [16:42:31] <Kaingaskhan> Good enough!
  2003. [16:42:47] <Kaingaskhan> The hologram projectors spark and fry!
  2004. [16:42:53] <Kaingaskhan> THUNDER
  2005. [16:43:00] <@Lenore> 2d6+60 "Heavens!  Rain down upon my foe!"
  2006. [16:43:01] <DiceMaid-9001> Lenore, "Heavens!  Rain down upon my foe!": 68 [2d6=4,4]
  2007. [16:43:06] <@Lenore> (so many 4s)
  2008. [16:43:15] <Natalie> (shiny?)
  2009. [16:43:20] <Kaingaskhan> And now
  2010. [16:43:23] <Kaingaskhan> player turns are ogre
  2011. [16:43:26] <Theta> (Yes a shiny goblin.)
  2012. [16:43:30] <@Lenore> (badpun)
  2013. [16:43:31] <Natalie> (you should feel terrible for that)
  2014. [16:43:34] <Amaryllis> (we got a shiny ogre already you guys)
  2015. [16:43:41] <Kaingaskhan> (shrek's time here is ogre)
  2016. [16:43:52] <Kaingaskhan> The Overlord rushes at Theta!
  2017. [16:44:14] <Kaingaskhan> 2d6+5 If this hits you it's a party wipe
  2018. [16:44:14] <DiceMaid-9001> Kaingaskhan, If this hits you it's a party wipe: 10 [2d6=4,1]
  2019. [16:44:27] <Celina> (I'm still up in the air though ;_;)
  2020. [16:44:29] <Amaryllis> (good thing he has third eye)
  2021. [16:44:33] <Celina> (that too)
  2022. [16:44:35] <Natalie> (FUCK YES THIRD EYE)
  2023. [16:44:36] <@Lenore> (^)
  2024. [16:45:13] <Theta> (Yeah gonna have to third eye it)
  2025. [16:45:28] <Theta> Theta ducks to the side as he rushes by.
  2026. [16:45:32] <Kaingaskhan> 194 arm damage is completely whiffed as Theta uses his samurai-like reflexes and intuition!
  2027. [16:45:42] <Kaingaskhan> Player turns
  2028. [16:45:49] <Amaryllis> Trance aside, how does the thing look?
  2029. [16:45:57] <Kaingaskhan> You've got it down to about 1/3 of its hp left
  2030. [16:46:11] <Theta> (Yeah this is bad if it hits me)
  2031. [16:46:16] <Theta> (Trouble will completely KO us all)
  2032. [16:46:30] <Natalie> (we don't want no trabble)
  2033. [16:46:38] <Theta> (Well too bad you have it)
  2034. [16:46:42] <Natalie> (man I wish I had provoke)
  2035. [16:46:45] <Celina> (wait, I don't think trouble hits people in the air but I don't recall to be sure)
  2036. [16:46:47] <Kaingaskhan> And I think
  2037. [16:46:50] <Kaingaskhan> trouble fades away now?
  2038. [16:46:53] <Celina> 2d6+3 ANYWAY
  2039. [16:46:54] <DiceMaid-9001> Celina, ANYWAY: 14 [2d6=6,5]
  2040. [16:46:57] <Celina> CRITICAL HIT
  2041. [16:47:01] <Natalie> (1,1jump can't crit)
  2042. [16:47:02] <Kaingaskhan> GRAND SLAM
  2043. [16:47:03] <Celina> ...
  2044. [16:47:05] <Kaingaskhan> THANK YOU MA'AM
  2045. [16:47:08] <Celina> except jump can't critcal
  2046. [16:47:13] <Celina> ;_;
  2047. [16:47:15] <@Lenore> (what a party pooper)
  2048. [16:47:23] <Kaingaskhan> fuck dust Critical hit
  2049. [16:47:32] <Natalie> (looks like the pdf got LEFT IN THE DUST)
  2050. [16:47:32] <Kaingaskhan> We're going houserules in this fucker
  2051. [16:47:39] <@Lenore> (And this is why we play kain's game)
  2052. [16:47:44] <Kaingaskhan> Because I am biased towards dragoon
  2053. [16:47:53] <Natalie> (because you're named after one, presumably)
  2054. [16:47:56] <Kaingaskhan> and hate it when their stuff doesn't work together
  2055. [16:48:06] <Celina> 94 arm damage and honestly I'd just rule it can crit on a single target but not when you're attacking a group
  2056. [16:48:08] <Theta> (You really should just going through and making your own notes on the homebrew section of stuff, hell you could make a hell of a post to dust as is)
  2057. [16:48:11] <Natalie> (I mean if you join a game ran by a guy named 'Kain' you'd probably think "Oh man, I should play a dragoon")
  2058. [16:48:18] <Amaryllis> "I hope you can finish this without me..." Ammy slides her sword along the ground and takes a deep breath, calling up the last reserves of her strength to imbue it with darkness.
  2059. [16:48:28] <Amaryllis> 2#2d6+3 second one is darkside, Ammy goes down after this
  2060. [16:48:29] <DiceMaid-9001> Amaryllis, second one is darkside, Ammy goes down after this: 9 [2d6=4,2], 11 [2d6=5,3]

  2063. [16:48:37] <Celina> (or you should play a dragoon because they're best class)
  2064. [16:48:58] * Amaryllis charges forward and stabs twice! 33 arm! 78 shadow arm!
  2065. [16:49:01] <@Lenore> (I can't hear you over the sound of THINGS BEING BLOWN UP BY BLACK MAGES)

  2070. [16:49:26] <Amaryllis> Then she collapses with a gasp as wounds split open all up and down her swordarm.
  2071. [16:49:26] <Kaingaskhan> BECAUSE I THINK YOU CAN
  2072. [16:49:33] <Amaryllis> (FINISH IT)

  2074. [16:49:52] <Natalie> (... unless I can borrow the ribbon again)

  2113. [16:53:33] <@Lenore> (WHATEVER, THETA WINS)
  2114. [16:53:35] <Theta> "Enough I say, spirits of this temple, descimate this creature and free the crystal from its grasps!  Spirit Flame!"  He runs up at it, pulls as much spiritual energy into his sword as he can, and stabs the ogre in its lower spine.
  2115. [16:53:38] <Celina> (wahtever indeed)
  2116. [16:53:57] <Celina> (it's fitting that theta kicks all the ass in oeilvert)
  2117. [16:54:11] <Kaingaskhan> The creature pauses a moment, then ROARS in defiance! Destiny #3!

  2127. [16:54:34] <Natalie> (hahaha oh you)
  2128. [16:54:36] <Kaingaskhan> It collapses and EXPLODES into white flame!
  2129. [16:54:42] <Theta> (I keep calculating my damage w/ power 11 and not 12 :X)
  2130. [16:54:44] <Amaryllis> (hahaha)
  2131. [16:55:05] <Kaingaskhan> Its body dissolves into a shower of light and energy...
  2132. [16:55:08] * Natalie spins around and uses the ribbon to victory pose even though it's technically not hers. Hah.
  2133. [16:55:11] <Kaingaskhan> Leaving behind only a fragment of crystal.
  2134. [16:55:19] * Theta casually sheaths his blade, starts dusting himself off.
  2135. [16:55:25] * Celina does her own victory pose without it, then. So thre.
  2136. [16:55:25] <Celina> there
  2137. [16:55:27] <Celina> fuck spelling
  2138. [16:55:28] <Theta> "That wasn't that bad afterall."
  2139. [16:55:32] <Kaingaskhan> 3 experience, 1500 gil to everyone, 3 destiny, Lenore gets an extra one for being such a team player
  2140. [16:55:37] * Amaryllis does the victory lie-on-the-ground-unconscious
  2141. [16:55:42] <@Lenore> "It's over?  Aaaaah...."  She falls over.  Hoo.
  2142. [16:55:46] <Natalie> "Leeny, here!"  She tosses it anyway and ignores the crystal, going over to check on Ammy with PURE WORRY.
  2143. [16:55:55] <Celina> :D yay lenny
  2144. [16:56:19] <Natalie> Might as well be falling over on top of Ammy at this point, though.
  2145. [16:56:29] <Kaingaskhan> Riese: "Incredible..."
  2146. [16:56:33] * Theta scoops up the crystal. "Hello, there!"
  2147. [16:56:40] <Kaingaskhan> Stiltzkin: "That was amazing! I thought I'd seen everything..."
  2148. [16:56:42] <Amaryllis> Do I wake up?
  2149. [16:56:42] <Theta> (How much total gil have we got since we got here?)
  2150. [16:56:47] <Kaingaskhan> You totally wake up.
  2151. [16:56:48] <Amaryllis> 1950
  2152. [16:56:51] <Celina> (1950)
  2153. [16:56:58] * Celina reaches for the crystal, but then stands back and lets Theta get it.
  2154. [16:57:17] * Amaryllis struggles to a sitting position, clutching her arm and breathing heavily. She looks over and nods at Theta. "My bag."
  2155. [16:57:19] <Kaingaskhan> The crystal fragments glitters silently in theta's hand with a warm light.
  2156. [16:57:27] <@Lenore> (...did we get exp for the fight with the three minor ogres?  whatever.  4/5 EXP wooo)
  2157. [16:57:33] * Natalie helps Ammy up and 1,1gives her a big hug ;~;
  2158. [16:57:44] <Kaingaskhan> (I lumped that fight's rewards in with this one)
  2159. [16:57:46] * Amaryllis winces but returns the hug best she can.
  2160. [16:57:50] <@Lenore> ('kay)
  2161. [16:57:58] <Natalie> "You scared the crap out of me!  Be more careful, okay?"
  2162. [16:58:00] <Amaryllis> "It is never pleasant having to do that."
  2163. [16:58:42] <Amaryllis> "Yes m-...yes Nat." She speaks in a hushed, tired tone.
  2164. [16:58:43] * Natalie sniffles a little but pulls back. "Anyway, we did it. Let's see..."
  2165. [16:58:52] <Celina> (quick, let's pick a fight with Riese while she's out of STD's)
  2166. [16:58:53] <Kaingaskhan> Riese: "A dark knight, hm..."
  2167. [16:59:07] <Kaingaskhan> (Why would you wanna fight riese)
  2168. [16:59:16] <Natalie> If Theta doesn't do it Natty fishes out the big crystal chunk, or tries to anyway.
  2169. [16:59:22] * @Lenore makes sure Ammy is okay! Then checks out the Crystal!
  2170. [16:59:33] <Theta> (I don't think he HAS the others.)
  2171. [16:59:38] <Amaryllis> "Should we not wait?"
  2172. [16:59:49] <Celina> (because we're about to level :B :B :B)
  2173. [16:59:52] <Amaryllis> (Ammy was directing Theta toward her bag, which has the rest of the crystal)
  2174. [17:00:12] <Amaryllis> (but it's also in question if we want to reveal the crystal thing in front of Riese)
  2175. [17:00:25] <Celina> (we told her that's what we're looking for, right?)
  2176. [17:00:29] <Celina> (but still I see your point)
  2177. [17:00:32] * Natalie pauses at the question, pondering a bit.
  2178. [17:00:55] <Kaingaskhan> Riese: "So I suppose this is what you were talking about... I'm sorry I wasn't much help."
  2179. [17:01:15] <Kaingaskhan> Riese: "I have to thank you again, you've taken care of a huge nuisance here in the ruins."
  2180. [17:01:30] <Natalie> "Nn!  All that matters is that we did it, right?"  She just lifts the whole bag and brings it over to Theta, then.
  2181. [17:01:30] <Celina> "Nonsense, Lady Riese. You helped us immesurably."
  2182. [17:01:32] <Kaingaskhan> Riese: "The Returners owe you one, let me know if we can do something for you."
  2183. [17:01:44] <Theta> "The stupid brute had eaten it.  I cannot understand why.  It doesn't even look tasty."
  2184. [17:02:01] * @Lenore makes sure she didn't completely wreck the poor machines she was using.
  2185. [17:02:02] <Natalie> "Maybe it actually is tasty?"
  2186. [17:02:03] <Amaryllis> "It granted the creature great power. That much is easily understood."
  2187. [17:02:08] <Kaingaskhan> Stiltzkin: "Maybe it sensed the power within and tried to claim it for its own... That would explain its size, strength, and Trance..."
  2188. [17:02:11] * Natalie leans close to go for a bite, but shakes it off.
  2189. [17:02:14] <Celina> "Lady Riese, if you have forces in Lindblum, I would suggest getting in touch with them quickly, if you want to do us a favor."
  2190. [17:02:40] <Kaingaskhan> Riese: "About what we discussed earlier?"
  2191. [17:02:45] <Celina> "Yes."
  2192. [17:03:07] <Kaingaskhan> Riese: "I'll send a pigeon as soon as I can, then."
  2193. [17:03:36] * Amaryllis stumbles getting up and gives Celina a quick glance but then gets back to standing up properly. "...I suppose it was already written that we align ourselves such then."
  2194. [17:03:39] <Kaingaskhan> The brown-furred nezumi sighs a bit in relief.
  2195. [17:03:41] <Celina> "I appreciate it."
  2196. [17:03:47] <Natalie> "Nnnn..."  Nat looks to all the others, :<ing.
  2197. [17:04:18] * Amaryllis finds the comfiest looking bit of debris or ruin structure and sits back down again.
  2198. [17:04:23] <Kaingaskhan> Riese: "We're expecting an airship from Burmecia and back any time now, I might ought also head back home..."
  2199. [17:04:26] <@Lenore> "I'm pretty tired.  Can we leave nomagic soon?  Pleeeease?"
  2200. [17:04:36] * @Lenore finds the comfiest place to sit and does that. :/
  2201. [17:04:41] <Celina> "Is that so?"
  2202. [17:04:41] <Kaingaskhan> You rest a bit.
  2203. [17:04:43] <Celina> "Hm."
  2204. [17:04:49] * Natalie keeps holding the bag and pondering.
  2205. [17:04:59] <Amaryllis> "There is still much to be learned from the machines here. They contain knowledge...and stories."
  2206. [17:05:10] * Theta scratches his heads. "Why not just go back to the Moogle's dwelling a bit and discuss matters such as that?" He asks to Lenore and Ammy
  2207. [17:05:15] <Kaingaskhan> Riese: "I meant to ask about that..."
  2208. [17:05:42] <Kaingaskhan> Riese: "None of our people have been able to get meaningul data out of those odd devices, but I saw you working with them earlier. Is there something..."
  2209. [17:05:59] <Kaingaskhan> Riese: "I don't mean to pry, of course, it's just that anything you found may be useful to us."
  2210. [17:06:04] <@Lenore> "The easiest way to get them to work...is to pretend to know what you're doing with them!"
  2211. [17:06:32] <Celina> "Sir Theta, have you found anything of the sort?"
  2212. [17:06:43] * Amaryllis nods at Theta.
  2213. [17:07:07] <Natalie> "Nnng."  The white monk looks pretty pooped too.  "Mr. Theta, would you mind if I just held onto it?"
  2214. [17:07:13] * Theta takes off his hat and scratches his head.
  2215. [17:07:34] <Theta> "They aren't operational normally?  I was just able to read it."
  2216. [17:09:12] <Celina> "I suppose there's your answer, then, Lady Riese."
  2217. [17:09:16] <Kaingaskhan> Riese: "...No one's been able to identify what language it is."
  2218. [17:09:20] <Kaingaskhan> Riese: "Curious."
  2219. [17:09:36] <Kaingaskhan> Riese: "Well, no matter. We'll continue our search, then."
  2220. [17:10:37] <Kaingaskhan> Riese bows. "If you'll excuse me... thank you very much once more. Should we not meet again then may the eternal harvest ever provide bounty for you."
  2221. [17:10:51] <Theta> "And Natalie, if we are to do this why not in a tent behind moogletech defenses instead of...here."
  2222. [17:11:18] * Natalie sighs a bit. "O... Okay. Okay, let's do that."
  2223. [17:11:36] <Kaingaskhan> Stiltzkin gives you a puzzled look that makes you think he took Theta's words the wrong way.
  2224. [17:11:45] <Kaingaskhan> Riese excuses herself
  2225. [17:11:47] <Natalie> "And we're glad you helped us, too!  We'll probably meet again!"
  2226. [17:11:57] * Natalie waves Riese off, not catching the innuendo at all.
  2227. [17:12:32] * Celina blinks.
  2228. [17:12:37] * Celina glances from Natalie to Theta.
  2229. [17:12:52] <Celina> "In any case, good luck to you as well."
  2230. [17:12:54] * Natalie blinks back. "Well? What're we waiting for?"
  2231. [17:12:56] * Amaryllis remains silent for a while more as Riese leaves and then finally rises once more with a groan. "Shall we return then?"
  2232. [17:12:57] <Kaingaskhan> Stiltzkin coughs
  2233. [17:13:04] <Celina> "Ah, right."
  2234. [17:14:03] <Kaingaskhan> Aaaand I'm going to leave you waffles for a few minutes, my head is aching
  2235. [17:14:08] <Celina> :C
  2236. [17:14:10] <Celina> kaaain
  2237. [17:14:15] <Natalie> Are we picking up in a bit?
  2238. [17:14:30] <Kaingaskhan> do you WANT to?
  2239. [17:14:37] <Celina> I dooo
  2240. [17:14:38] <Kaingaskhan> This has gone on six hours now
  2241. [17:14:42] <Amaryllis> (I think we'd want to lego the crystals together at least)
  2242. [17:14:42] <Natalie> Yes please, FUCK CLIFFHANGERS- but do lie down
  2243. [17:14:51] <Natalie> because I know how it feels running like that
  2244. [17:14:51] <Celina> let's do roleplay stuff while we wait?
  2245. [17:14:52] <Natalie> and ouch
  2246. [17:14:54] <@Lenore> I want to join the crystal up
  2247. [17:15:00] <Kaingaskhan> Okay we can do that
  2248. [17:15:07] <Kaingaskhan> just let me grab some advil
  2249. [17:15:13] <Natalie> Sorry ;~;
  2250. [17:15:20] <Theta> yeah I think we just need to stick the rocks together at the moment
  2251. [17:15:25] <Celina> "So, Miss Amaryllis, what do you think of the Lady Riese?"
  2252. [17:15:52] * Theta waits until rat #2 leaves. "I am not entirely sure I trust her or her companions..."
  2253. [17:16:00] * @Lenore is fiddling a bit with the Moogle Tent. Hmmm. She hasn't unfurled it yet, but it's something to do.
  2254. [17:17:01] <Amaryllis> "Her story shall be an intriguing one I am sure. I am unsure if it is fortunate that our tale should join with hers as it has for this brief moment." Ammy gazes out at the direction she left in.
  2255. [17:17:18] * Natalie marches along. "She doesn't seem bad or anything. She DID help us, at least, right?"
  2256. [17:18:02] <Theta> "Yes, but...something about this temple feels extremely sacred to me, and what they seek from it bothers me."
  2257. [17:18:52] <Kaingaskhan> (Back)
  2258. [17:18:56] <Celina> "...On the one hand, defending Burmecia is important, so terribly important, but..."
  2259. [17:18:57] * @Lenore is moving along carefully. "We beat the strongest Ogre, right?"
  2260. [17:19:02] * Celina looks lost in thought.
  2261. [17:19:05] <Celina> (oh hey kain)
  2262. [17:19:06] <@Lenore> "Does that make us the kings and queens of Ogres?"
  2263. [17:19:10] <Celina> (did its weapons shatter with it)
  2264. [17:19:23] <Kaingaskhan> yes
  2265. [17:19:32] <Natalie> "It probably just makes us better than ogres, don't you think?"
  2266. [17:19:34] <Celina> (oh well, easy come easy go)
  2267. [17:19:34] <Kaingaskhan> because tier 3 piercing weapons are broke
  2268. [17:19:44] <Celina> "I'd think, yes."
  2269. [17:21:43] <Theta>  "Her inquiry about the machines also bothers me.  Quite frankly I wish I knew more about the very nature of this place too, but given their focus what they would want to find..."
  2270. [17:21:44] <Amaryllis> "We stand on fragile ground. Imagine the consequences if Alexandria knew a network of spies, mostly Nezumi, had set up within its bounds. I am unsure what to think, but many a cautionary tale has proceeded from intentions as theirs."
  2271. [17:22:12] * Amaryllis slowly starts to stumble back toward the mooglehideyplace.
  2272. [17:22:27] <Natalie> "Nnnnnn.  I guess I would've really blew it if I WAS in a hurry, then."  Nat's still hauling the bag unless Ammy wanted it back.
  2273. [17:22:44] * Amaryllis takes it back I suppose.
  2274. [17:22:52] <Celina> "Regardless, we'll have allies should we come to battle in Lindblum."
  2275. [17:23:01] <@Lenore> "That's good!"
  2276. [17:23:03] <Celina> "So there's that."
  2277. [17:23:03] * Natalie then walks EERILY CLOSE to Ammy. Ha! Ha!
  2278. [17:24:30] <Celina> "But still." She still doesn't look too happy, but then again, she basically never looks happy.
  2279. [17:24:52] <Amaryllis> "You never introduced yourself to her. Why is that?"
  2280. [17:24:56] <Natalie> Rats can smile?
  2281. [17:25:08] <Celina> (yes they can :<)
  2282. [17:25:26] <Celina> "I...don't know. It's complicated."
  2283. [17:26:03] <Natalie> "Nnn.  I don't really understand either, but it doesn't matter now, right?"
  2284. [17:27:20] <Amaryllis> "Sounds like a story. An important one to you I am sure. Your hesitance is not surprising then." Once at the mooglecamp, Ammy holds up her bag with the crystal. "...shall we?"
  2285. [17:27:50] <Celina> "Well, I don't really think it's much of a story, or important, but..."
  2286. [17:27:53] <Theta> "Indeed."
  2287. [17:27:55] <Kaingaskhan> Stiltzkin has also arrived back at the moogle camp.
  2288. [17:27:58] * Natalie nodnodnods.
  2289. [17:28:04] <Kaingaskhan> Stiltzkin: "Uh, did you want this to be private or..."
  2290. [17:28:07] * Celina shrugs helplessly. "It seemed like the right thing to do at the time."
  2291. [17:28:07] <@Lenore> "Yeah, let's do it~"
  2292. [17:28:46] <Natalie> "Hmm, it doesn't really matter now, yeah?"  Nacchan rudely dives into the bag whlie Ammy holds it up, yanking the crystal out.
  2293. [17:28:49] <Amaryllis> "One's stories are a gateway to the soul. Their revelation...Well, In any case." Ammy picks up the party's bigger bit of the crystal and holds it up toward whoever's holding the new chunk.
  2294. [17:29:45] <Celina> "Not everything is about stories." Grumble grumble.
  2295. [17:30:02] <Kaingaskhan> (THIS IS YOUR STORY)
  2296. [17:30:06] <Kaingaskhan> (THIS IS MY STORY)
  2297. [17:30:23] <Natalie> "But this is!"  Either way Nat HELPS hold the crystal somehow, trying to be HELPFUL.
  2298. [17:30:25] * Amaryllis is too tired and in too much pain to argue the point. She wants someone to lego the damned crystal.
  2299. [17:30:33] <Theta> (I'm just waiting for an unown to pop up to talk to Ammy.)
  2300. [17:30:33] <@Lenore> "But storytime is so fun!"
  2301. [17:30:57] <Kaingaskhan> http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fUH35EH-Nm0
  2302. [17:31:39] <Kaingaskhan> SUDDENLY THE CRYSTALS LEGO
  2303. [17:31:41] <Amaryllis> (you know I was gonna steal that line sometime for when Ammy finished off an enemy)
  2304. [17:31:55] <Natalie> :D
  2305. [17:32:00] <Kaingaskhan> And a gentle blue light begins glowing from within.
  2306. [17:32:28] <Kaingaskhan> You can hear a cascading melody begin to play, its origins rumbling deep within your souls.
  2307. [17:32:29] <Kaingaskhan> http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iUs_6-d5T3g
  2308. [17:34:48] <Kaingaskhan> 12,0You have gone above and beyond the call of duty, placing your very lives on the line to heal the fractured world. Oh hey it's the OTHER voice, and it's not being all mysterious and vague this time. 12,0Many pieces yet remain, but the mist has begun to clear.
  2309. [17:35:13] <Kaingaskhan> This one is distinctly more feminine.
  2310. [17:35:36] * Natalie gulps and keeps a hold on.
  2311. [17:38:02] * Amaryllis just listens, staring into the glow.
  2312. [17:38:11] <@Lenore> "Good!  Um...okay...where do we look next?"
  2313. [17:38:17] <Kaingaskhan> 12,0A strong pull comes from the Mist Continent. Deep within the earth, guarded by treacherous serpents... High above the plains at skyline's edge... Within the waters of the darkest depths... Guarded by a fiery soul who backs down from no challenge...
  2314. [17:38:44] * Natalie starts scribbling with one hand while holding on with the other.
  2315. [17:39:02] <Kaingaskhan> 12,0The journey will not be easy. Be wary, for all is not as it seems.
  2316. [17:39:17] <Amaryllis> "What deceptions should we be cautious of then?"
  2317. [17:39:23] <Celina> "What do you mean by that?"
  2318. [17:39:26] <Celina> (darn it ammy_
  2319. [17:39:27] <Celina> )
  2320. [17:39:31] <Kaingaskhan> 12,0All is not as it seems...
  2321. [17:40:26] <Kaingaskhan> The crystal once again goes quiet.
  2322. [17:40:29] <Natalie> "Well, duh, that means 'Kuja' isn't really Kuja, we know that!"
  2323. [17:40:38] <@Lenore> "Well..."
  2324. [17:41:05] <@Lenore> "Maybe because we're all so convinced that Kuja is not Kuja maybe that means that koojah really IS koojah or maybe not."
  2325. [17:41:06] <Celina> "How vague."
  2326. [17:41:19] <Celina> "It doesn't matter either way if it's Kuja or not."
  2327. [17:41:27] * Natalie headshakes and closes her eyes.
  2328. [17:41:33] <Celina> "What matters is that it intends to rekindle the War of Alexander."
  2329. [17:41:37] <Celina> "Which means...."
  2330. [17:41:57] <@Lenore> "That's definitely not a good thing!"
  2331. [17:42:16] <Theta> "Or it could mean that's not her goal."
  2332. [17:42:19] <Celina> "Right, right." The rat seems even more distracted than usual.
  2333. [17:42:25] <Amaryllis> "It did not mention 'Kuja' when guiding us towards other crystal shards. What does that mean? That she does not really possess them? Or that we should avoid her?"
  2334. [17:42:29] <Theta> "Not the most helpful of guidances."
  2335. [17:42:52] <@Lenore> "Well, i-if there's the chance that they're the real thing...I'd rather avoid them..."
  2336. [17:43:52] <Celina> "We won't have that option, I don't think."
  2337. [17:44:22] * Natalie pulls back and stands up, dusting herself off and walking around to the other side of the tent or whatnot. "Let me know when we're leaving."
  2338. [17:45:24] <Amaryllis> "How are we leaving? Are we to take the Returners' offer? Or seek our own way to the Mist Continent? An airship from Lesetira may or may not lead us on a more direct path."
  2339. [17:46:06] <Theta> "I am very hesitant to accept their offer.  Something is off about them."
  2340. [17:46:18] * Natalie pauses on the way out. "Nnn... I have a plan. Just trust me, okay? But I wanna be alone right now."
  2341. [17:46:25] <Celina> "If we could arrange to travel with them, we could get a better feel on the situation."
  2342. [17:47:38] <Amaryllis> "Nat, be careful. The crystal has given us a warning." Ammy is too tired to get up and stop the girl, but she looks her dead in the eyes.
  2343. [17:47:55] <Natalie> With a gulp she walks off.  "I know."
  2344. [17:49:19] <Kaingaskhan> hmm
  2345. [17:49:20] <Celina> "Don't forget you can talk to us."
  2346. [17:49:28] <Celina> (and session?)
  2347. [17:49:30] <Theta> "Im even more hesitant of that because they now know there are individuals who can read the writings here.  I am not sure I wish to divuldge more than I've said to them."
  2348. [17:49:33] <Kaingaskhan> are we calling it session here or are you guys going to talk for a bit?
  2349. [17:49:45] <Amaryllis> (I think we're chatting a bit)
  2350. [17:49:48] <Kaingaskhan> Okay.
  2351. [17:49:49] <Celina> (oh okay)
  2352. [17:50:12] <Natalie> (Alonetime doesn't have to be a big thing, you can ask about the plan in a minute if you want)
  2353. [17:50:44] <Amaryllis> "A genome leads Alexandria. How you must feel..." Ammy ponders, finding a comfy place to lie down and setting the crystal aside.
  2354. [17:51:11] <Celina> "You can continue to maintain you saw nothing, correct?"
  2355. [17:52:06] <@Lenore> "Well, it's too late to say you got a lucky guess like I did..."
  2356. [17:52:16] <Amaryllis> "The king and queen played pivotal roles in the war, in ending Kuja. To harbor mistrust of Alexandria after even that, when Freya herself fought alongside the king and queen even..." Ammy trails off.
  2357. [17:52:56] <Celina> "Are you trying to say something?"
  2358. [17:53:00] * Celina 's eyes narrow.
  2359. [17:53:30] <Amaryllis> "Is it not odd?"
  2360. [17:53:47] <Amaryllis> "Perhaps even worrying."
  2361. [17:54:06] <Celina> "Worrying?"
  2362. [17:54:13] <Kaingaskhan> His Highness, Zidane Tribal is actually a minor figure as far as Alexandrian politics go. It's more accurate to call him...
  2363. [17:54:17] <Kaingaskhan> fuck, what's the right title
  2364. [17:54:22] <Kaingaskhan> Prince consort? King consort?
  2365. [17:54:35] <Kaingaskhan> Let's go with king consort
  2366. [17:54:36] <Theta> "Why even put myself in a position where I'd HAVE to do that?"
  2367. [17:54:48] <Theta> "For travel when we could possibly find other alternatives?"
  2368. [17:55:37] <Amaryllis> "If I were Kuja, and I wished for a return to war, I would first fan the flames of passion that drive the Returners on. And then pervert them."
  2369. [17:55:50] <Celina> "Fortunately, you are not."
  2370. [17:56:12] <Celina> "And the Returners are only concerned with protecting Burmecia and the Nezumi people."
  2371. [17:56:43] <Kaingaskhan> I'll fan your flames of passion bby
  2372. [17:57:35] <Celina> (oh my)
  2373. [17:57:37] <Amaryllis> "This is the first you have heard of them. Let us not not carve our conclusions in stone. They may be well-intentioned, or they may be dangerous to us, but we can only know for sure they have a role yet to play in this story. I wonder what it shall be..." Ammy gets a bit more talkative when tired/delirious.
  2374. [17:57:40] <Theta> "Yet here they are searching for an artifact they wish to utilize for their own goals."
  2375. [17:58:24] <Celina> "For all your talk of not drawing conclusions, you are fast not to trust them, Miss Amaryllis."
  2376. [17:58:28] <@Lenore> "A POWERFUL artifact, at that.
  2377. [17:58:29] <@Lenore> "
  2378. [17:58:32] <Celina> "Perhaps you would like to tell us why?"
  2379. [17:59:33] <Celina> "Perhaps the storyteller isn't as objective as she'd like people to think she was."
  2380. [17:59:35] <Amaryllis> "It is not that I entirely distrust them. We simply must know more."
  2381. [17:59:57] <Amaryllis> "Stories are never objective, Lady Celina. I have never pretended to be such myself."
  2382. [18:00:33] <Amaryllis> "I say we respect Sir Theta's wishes. We have funds enough to charter our own way to the Mist Continent. If that is disagreeable, perhaps we can make two separate trips and arrange a town in which to meet."
  2383. [18:00:55] <@Lenore> "Eeeh?  I don't want to split up!" :<
  2384. [18:01:40] <Kaingaskhan> Splitting up the party is objectively the smartest idea in any given situation
  2385. [18:01:45] <Amaryllis> :>
  2386. [18:01:58] <Theta> trufax beard will agree 9999%
  2387. [18:02:37] <Celina> "I don't care either way, but I do hope you don't let your biases get in the way of defending Lindblum."
  2388. [18:02:52] <Celina> "What a pity it should be if you couldn't control yourself long enough to save your country from ruin."
  2389. [18:02:57] <Amaryllis> "It is my home. That should speak enough."
  2390. [18:03:12] <Natalie> A few footsteps creep back out.  "S... Sorry.  What happened?"
  2391. [18:04:01] <Celina> "Very little."
  2392. [18:04:07] <Celina> "Was your walk refreshing?"
  2393. [18:04:48] <Natalie> "Nn, I didn't actually go far.  I was just tired from the fight, I think," headshake headshake.  "But I feel better."
  2394. [18:04:55] <Celina> "Well, that's good."
  2395. [18:05:05] * Theta slowly starts to laugh.
  2396. [18:05:28] * Natalie slumps over and sits down. "W-What'd I say?"
  2397. [18:08:12] <Theta> He slowly starts to get up.  "I, likewise, do not mind what you do with these individuals.  That is your own business.  I however desire nothing to do with them at the present.  I will find my own way to this Mist Continent, if I must."
  2398. [18:08:34] <Natalie> "Now, hold on a second!"
  2399. [18:08:42] <@Lenore> "Eeeh?  No, don't, wait!"
  2400. [18:09:10] <Natalie> "Is this about these people?  I'll have you know, I plan to save Lindblum from what's happening no matter what.  You will too, right, Ammy?"
  2401. [18:09:17] <Amaryllis> "It will be late into the night by the time you reach any civilization from here."
  2402. [18:10:09] <Amaryllis> "I will do as I deem best in Lindblum's defense, yes."
  2403. [18:11:19] <Natalie> "Alright!  Theeeen..."  She stretches.  "First of all, um, I'm sorry for not telling you guys.  Buuuut when I went to Ipsen's Castle I had some help..."
  2404. [18:11:37] <Celina> "...The snake?"
  2405. [18:11:41] <Celina> "Thank goodness."
  2406. [18:11:51] * Natalie headtilts. "How'd you know?"
  2407. [18:11:59] <Celina> "You lost one of your ribbons."
  2408. [18:12:09] <Celina> "We thought the thing had attacked you."
  2409. [18:12:15] <@Lenore> "We thought it ate you." :<
  2410. [18:12:28] <Natalie> "... Oh!  I told him I thought he'd look cute in one, so I tried to tie it on..."
  2411. [18:12:35] <Natalie> :<  "He didn't think it was very funny."
  2412. [18:12:53] * Celina glances over at Amaryllis.
  2413. [18:12:54] <Natalie> "Good thing I had a whole bunch, huh?"
  2414. [18:13:17] <Kaingaskhan> Somewhere in the distance
  2415. [18:13:19] * Amaryllis glances back tiredly, not entirely sure what Celina means here.
  2416. [18:13:29] <Kaingaskhan> a giant snake tosses and turns in his sleep
  2417. [18:13:33] <Kaingaskhan> desperately trying to rip the ribbons off
  2418. [18:13:53] <Celina> (poor giant snake ;_;)
  2419. [18:13:55] <@Lenore> (the ribbons)
  2420. [18:13:55] * Natalie stands up. "Anyway, he might be a little mean, but he's actually really nice on the inside! If I asked him and told him how important it was, he might be able to help us."
  2421. [18:14:00] <Natalie> "His name was..."
  2422. [18:14:03] <Natalie> "..."
  2423. [18:14:08] <Natalie> "...."
  2424. [18:14:09] <@Lenore> (theribbonstheribbonstheribbonstheribbonstheribbonstheribbonstheribbonstheribbons)
  2425. [18:14:15] * Amaryllis turns back. "'Deep within the earth, guarded by treacherous serpents.'" She wearily quotes back the crystal with some consternation. "It seems we have no path without risk here."
  2426. [18:14:26] * Natalie looks genuinely shocked. "Er, I forgot."
  2427. [18:14:36] <Celina> "And we haven't even gotten to the Continent of Mist yet."
  2428. [18:14:39] <@Lenore> "Hey, maybe that means..."
  2429. [18:15:01] <Amaryllis> "Terrato."
  2430. [18:15:13] * Amaryllis gives Nat a worried look.
  2431. [18:15:16] <Natalie> "Well, uhh... he IS a serpent and he's pretty treacherous - thanks, Ammy - but that doesn't mean he's mean!  The crystal never called them 'mean!'"
  2432. [18:15:22] <Natalie> "... Okay he's only slightly mean."
  2433. [18:15:25] <Celina> 2d6+2 what's a terrato
  2434. [18:15:25] <DiceMaid-9001> Celina, what's a terrato: 9 [2d6=2,5]
  2435. [18:15:52] <Theta> "...This sounds even more disasterous than joining these returners on their flight."
  2436. [18:16:24] <Natalie> "Oh, it's not that bad, he knows people taste awful!"
  2437. [18:16:26] <Natalie> ".."
  2438. [18:16:28] <Natalie> "Pretty sure."
  2439. [18:16:48] <Kaingaskhan> hmm
  2440. [18:17:20] <Celina> (that was esper lore, not general, if it matters)
  2441. [18:17:26] <Kaingaskhan> Celina has probably heard of the serpent that crawls along the Iifa Tree, the jormungandr, the midgard zolem, the eidolon named Terrato.
  2442. [18:17:37] <Natalie> (it's totally zolom)
  2443. [18:17:42] <Kaingaskhan> It spawn haunt the tunnels beneath the earth and hunt gargants
  2444. [18:17:45] <Celina> (midgarswarm)
  2445. [18:17:50] <Kaingaskhan> those big ant creatures you rode out of ipsen's
  2446. [18:17:50] <Natalie> (midgardsormr)
  2447. [18:18:26] <Amaryllis> (Jormungandr is actually my favorite name for the creature, but I'll go with what's on the Eidolon page Kain set up)
  2448. [18:18:28] <Kaingaskhan> modgordsromor
  2449. [18:18:30] <@Lenore> "Wait.  you know what it is, Ammy?"
  2450. [18:18:40] <Celina> "I would...strongly suggest we charter out of Lesetira rather than deal with an eidolon."
  2451. [18:18:41] <Theta> (midgardsormr was my ff11 server.)
  2452. [18:18:42] <Amaryllis> "Nat told me earlier."
  2453. [18:19:02] <@Lenore> "An Eidolon?  Huh.  Natty sure is lucky.
  2454. [18:19:03] <@Lenore> "
  2455. [18:19:04] * Natalie pouts. "I thought you'd say that."
  2456. [18:19:30] <Celina> "Lucky to be alive."
  2457. [18:19:53] <Natalie> "B-But how can you say that when you haven't even met him?  We could try once, and if it doesn't work out look for another way..."
  2458. [18:20:05] <Natalie> "He definitely IS a pretty comfy ride."
  2459. [18:20:16] <Natalie> "Smooth instead of bumpy... not that tough to hold onto..."
  2460. [18:20:17] <Celina> "You may, but I'd rather not risk my life dealing with a monster."
  2461. [18:20:19] <Amaryllis> "Be careful that you do not fall into the traps you try to give warning of, Lady Celina."
  2462. [18:20:49] <Kain> (anyway, need to lay down. That's all of my input for today, continue as long as you like. And be sure to leave what you thought of today's session)
  2463. [18:20:55] <Natalie> Headshake.  "But he's not a monster!  I mean, I guess he looks like one, but.... Mr. Prickles is a monster and nobody hates him, right?"
  2464. [18:21:00] <Celina> "Ah, so I'm not allowed to disagree with a course of action?"
  2465. [18:21:02] <Amaryllis> "You speak with the force of Burmecia's tragedy behind your voice. That tale yet guides your words, does it not?"
  2466. [18:21:06] <Celina> "Sir Prickles is Sir Prickles."
  2467. [18:21:21] <Theta> "
  2468. [18:21:31] <Celina> "Like Sir Theta has disagreed with my suggestion, so I disagree with this one. That is all there is to it."
  2469. [18:21:36] <Amaryllis> "Do not accuse others of subjectivity without knowing you too cannot escape it."
  2470. [18:21:38] * Kaingaskhan (DDK@sux-4B12F52F.jan.bellsouth.net) Quit (Ping timeout)
  2471. [18:21:38] <Natalie> "Well, everybody doesn't seem to like going with Reesy..."
  2472. [18:21:43] <Theta> "We have a piece of this world's crystal directly telling us terrestrial serpants are decietful.  Why would we deal with one?"
  2473. [18:22:08] <Celina> "None of us are Summoners."
  2474. [18:22:08] <Natalie> "If he was deceitful than he WOULD'VE eaten me, though."  :<
  2475. [18:22:16] <@Lenore> "Do we really need to argue?  It might not be the same serpent!"
  2476. [18:22:28] <Theta> "Decietful doesn't mean 'devouring,' it could be trying to win your trust over."
  2477. [18:22:56] <Natalie> "Levv- ... Leviathan was a serpent too, wasn't he?"
  2478. [18:23:07] <Amaryllis> "Chartering an airship seems to appease everyone. We will never exit this crossroads of our tale if we do not choose and act, however."
  2479. [18:23:24] <Celina> "Leviathan was bleeding to death."
  2480. [18:23:30] * Natalie sighs. "I... I guess we can, but..."
  2481. [18:23:51] <Natalie> "If the Glutton eats him, what if he gets stronger?"
  2482. [18:24:18] <Celina> "Unless you intend on taking him with us, that'll be a possibility no matter what."
  2483. [18:24:25] <Celina> "Him being the serpent, that is."
  2484. [18:25:08] <Natalie> "Nnnn... I wouldn't mind taking him somewhere where that fatso isn't."
  2485. [18:25:16] <Natalie> "And that helps all of us, right?"
  2486. [18:25:25] <Celina> "The Glutton has airships."
  2487. [18:25:25] <@Lenore> "It would!"
  2488. [18:25:34] <Celina> "And I will not deal with an Eidolon."
  2489. [18:25:48] <Celina> "As is the case with Sir Theta, I shall seek my own way if need be,"
  2490. [18:26:04] * Natalie droops down again. "Leeny... isn't there any way you can just try it?"
  2491. [18:26:11] <Amaryllis> (gogo 3 way party split)
  2492. [18:26:22] <Natalie> (castland all over again)
  2493. [18:26:29] <@Lenore> "Eidolons aren't inherently bad!"
  2494. [18:26:34] <Amaryllis> (Hey FFIX did its share of party splits)
  2495. [18:26:44] <Celina> "Nor are they good, Miss Lenore."
  2496. [18:27:13] <Celina> "I have already dealt with their kind enough - and I regret what little I have done."
  2497. [18:27:43] * Natalie keeps that :< plastered.
  2498. [18:28:05] * @Lenore also gets a :< plastered on her.
  2499. [18:28:10] * Amaryllis frowns at the direction of the conversation and decides to go for the tea and cookies.
  2500. [18:28:30] * Celina stares back expressionlessly.
  2501. [18:28:38] <Natalie> "Well, I'm saving Lindblum no matter what!"
  2502. [18:28:56] <Celina> "I assume that is the intention of all of us."
  2503. [18:29:07] <Natalie> "And that's more important than HOW we get there."
  2504. [18:30:21] <Celina> "And yet it's the latter that seems to be giving us the most trouble."
  2505. [18:30:53] <Natalie> "Then why don't we ask the crystal what to... oh, right."
  2506. [18:30:59] <Amaryllis> "No one has raised an objection to simply chartering an airship." Ammy's voice is twinge sharper and more curt now, from over across the moogle camp where the cookies are.
  2507. [18:31:12] <Celina> "That is true, Miss Amaryllis."
  2508. [18:31:47] <Natalie> "I... guess.  But I just don't want to abandon him after he helped me, that's all!"
  2509. [18:32:05] <Theta> "Well, yes, I don't see how there could be."
  2510. [18:32:16] <@Lenore> "Sure, Airship!"
  2511. [18:32:17] <Theta> "We are not exactly empty on funding."
  2512. [18:32:19] <Amaryllis> "Two among us staunchly refuse a single option each, leaving one. Are there more suggestions?"
  2513. [18:32:43] <Celina> "We could take a boat over, if we feared being attacked."
  2514. [18:32:56] <Natalie> "... !"
  2515. [18:33:26] <Celina> "One's slightly more likely to survive a shipwreck than an airship crash, I believe."
  2516. [18:33:37] * Natalie headtilts. "Wasn't S-... what was it... Syldra an eidolon? That was how we got here, right?"
  2517. [18:33:39] <Amaryllis> "If Lady Celina wishes not to deal in Eidolons, and Sir Theta wishes not to deal with the Returners, and there yet remains a third option involving neither..." Ammy takes a sip of tea. "We could still travel separately."
  2518. [18:33:48] <@Lenore> "Oh yeah, Syldra...been a while..."
  2519. [18:33:50] <Amaryllis> "Yes."
  2520. [18:34:04] <Natalie> "And why wasn't that a problem?  We could've taken an airship then too!"
  2521. [18:34:20] * Celina looks disgusted. "Again, I have dealt too much with the Eidolons already."
  2522. [18:34:25] <Natalie> "Plus," HMPH, "he was a serpent and didn't crash or eat us!"
  2523. [18:34:43] <Celina> "While it would have been useful to keep Leviathan in my debt, such things are not suffered ightly, I imagine."
  2524. [18:34:55] <Theta> "Well, yes, he seemed tame enough however."
  2525. [18:35:11] <@Lenore> (BITCHTAG 2: ELECTRIC BOOGALOO)
  2526. [18:35:15] <Theta> "First off we have no reliable way to beckon him, second off he is an extremely sucpicious vessel of travel."
  2527. [18:35:37] <Natalie> "... Nnn.  That's a point, so..."
  2528. [18:35:38] <Theta> "Especially if we wish to keep a low profile."
  2529. [18:35:55] <Celina> "I agree with Sir Theta."
  2530. [18:36:14] <Natalie> "How about this!  We go back to... Lesetira, right?  If we see any sign of him along the way we talk to him, but if we can't find anything than we get on an airship instead.  How's that?"
  2531. [18:36:49] <Natalie> "'Cause that way it's not like we're going out of our way or anything!"
  2532. [18:37:15] <Celina> "How about we just charter an airship out of Lesetira and not deal with Eidolons?"
  2533. [18:38:01] <Natalie> "How about we just look anyway?  You don't even have to say anything!"
  2534. [18:38:58] <Celina> "Very well then, and I shall go on my own."
  2535. [18:38:58] <Natalie> (this is a much more civil version of bitchtag though, I like it)
  2536. [18:39:16] <Celina> "Since it seems like we shall be unable to proceed together."
  2537. [18:39:33] * Amaryllis works at one of those number combination locks on her journal fiddling the dials back and forth a few times before opening it and thumbing through, writing something occasionally. She glancse up at the others occasionally and is clearly still listening though.
  2538. [18:39:51] <Natalie> "Fine!  Then if I see him I'll ask for his help instead."
  2539. [18:40:19] <Celina> "Best of luck to you."
  2540. [18:40:35] * @Lenore watches Natty and Celly argue in abject horror.
  2541. [18:40:36] * Natalie sits back down and hmphs.
  2542. [18:41:04] * Celina helps herself to some more tea and siiiips.
  2543. [18:42:04] * Natalie hasn't touched the tea yet, but turns away from the others for a few seconds in the silence every now and then.
  2544. [18:42:07] <Amaryllis> "Strife is an important element in any tale. A band of unified heroes lacks personality and potential for development. One does not find such a lacking in the great epics. We must be destined for wondrous things." Ammy snaps her journal locked and sips her tea once more.
  2545. [18:42:15] <Amaryllis> *completely unified
  2546. [18:42:32] <Theta> "Are we done here for now, then? I will be waiting near the entrance.  I have a few more things I'm interested in searching for in that mechanism."
  2547. [18:42:50] <@Lenore> (Annnd, I really need to go eat so I'll be off for a while)
  2548. [18:42:55] <Celina> "I'd like to accompany you, if you don't mind."
  2549. [18:42:56] <Amaryllis> "I shall accompany you, if that is acceptable." Ammy waits for a response before getting up.
  2550. [18:43:04] * Celina scowls at Amaryllis.
  2551. [18:43:06] <Natalie> "Nn, Ammy, wait!"
  2552. [18:43:16] <Celina> (I've got a game in twenty so I've got to bounce sorry)
  2553. [18:43:27] <Natalie> "Let them go, I want to ask you something anyway."
  2554. [18:44:28] <Amaryllis> "Can it wait? I cannot decipher the stories in the machine without Theta, and we will be staying here a while yet. I shall be back soon enough."
  2555. [18:44:57] * Natalie scowls. "As a matter of fact it can't."
  2556. [18:45:08] <Amaryllis> "Very well." Ammy hangs back.
  2557. [18:45:17] <Theta> S H R U G.  "I don't see why not, I'll just go ahead then."
  2558. [18:45:34] <Natalie> "You can help them in a minute, this is... t-this is an order!  Come with me."
  2559. [18:45:42] * Natalie drags ammychan away.
  2560. [18:45:49] * Amaryllis is dragged.
  2561. [18:46:01] * Anise watches, utterly bemused. Perhaps she'll have tea with Stiltzkin instead.
  2562. [18:46:10] <Natalie> Have fun, Anise.
  2563. [18:46:10] <Anise> (and by anise I mean celina)
