TEAM BUTTPIRATE
You are at the back door.
what do?
Lily
"Fuck waiting. Let's go in." Lily looks...different, to say the least. Her skin is noticeably discolored, and two nubby horns are poking out of the top of her head.
GCA
"Are you sure, I mean, what if the puppies try to run away?"
GCA
Erisio is peering through the window
Lily
"Like hell I'm waiting out here while they have all the plot exposition. Besides, I've got stuff I wanna ask Acey and Darmok."
GCA
"Uh, ok, if you say so"
GCA
Erisio tries to quietly open the door and enter the house
Lily
"Hollld up there." She waves a hand in front of her face and coughs meaningfully.
GCA
"Oh, yeah, eyes" Erisio takes Lily's hand and tries to guide her into the house
Lily
"No, no, wait, I had an idea." She scrunches up her nose. "Lemme just..."
Lily will attempt to roll Mind to 'borrow' Erisio's vision by looking in his mind at what he's seeing.
Would this count as a Seer-y power?
languidLachesis (GM)
sure!
GCA
better question, will this make Erisio blind
Lily
Sweet!

You can make out very very fuzzy shapes.
You'll still need help.
Lily
"Ech. Well, it's better than nothing, I guess." She takes a few tentative steps forward. "Lemme know if I'm gonna bump into anything."
GCA
"Sure" He looks around for puppy children, making sure none are in the makings of a dastardly cute plot
Lily
"WHOA WHOA WHOA." She stops, clutching her head. "Eyes FORWARD."
GCA
"Huh?"
Lily
"Oh, I should probably mention I'm kind of hijacking your sight right now."
GCA
"Cool, whats the plan now great seer"
Lily
She shrugs. "Go inside?"
GCA
He goes inside
Lily
Lily hurriedly follows.

Squigs, you trip over the stoop, and land flat on your face on the kitchen floor.
Lily
Lily utters a string of curses that would make a sailor blush.
GCA
"Lilyyy, we're trying to be steaalthy"
Lily
"Shut the FUCK UP and GIMME YOUR GODDAMN HAND," she growls, rising up. "I do not have TIME for this bullshit."
GCA
Erisio frowns and sighs dejectedly, and gives Lily his hand
languidLachesis (GM)
You hear puppies in the bedrooms, settling in to sleep.
GCA
"shhh, the puppies are sleep"
GCA
he whispers
Lily
She takes it. "Ugh, I'm sorry. It's just kinda hard to stay chipper when you can feel things crawling, LITERALLY fucking CRAWLING, in your brain." She grimaces. "Also the horns don't help. This is painful as shit."
GCA
"Ok let's go, no more loud noises" erisio leads her to the stairs
GCA
and up them

Miloko, you are so hidden.
Acenia
Acenia narrows her eyes.
Rubi
"Umm... Hello?"
languidLachesis (GM)
The man behind the desk nods to the puppy at his feet, who hands him a large card - a character sheet. He twirls it in his fingers. "Interesting. Go get me another."
The puppies turn on the group. Everyone in the room roll 1d100

Acenia, you are overcome with pity for the plight of these little ones. You hand over your sheet and scratch behind their ears. So adorable.
The puppies run back to Slim, handing him your sheet.
Rubi
Rubi shakes her head
languidLachesis (GM)
He examines both your sheet and Lily's, clicking his tongue.
Acenia
"F.ffern fronds. That wasn't what I wanted. Stop manipulating them."
languidLachesis (GM)
Slim sighs, and stands up, adjusting his suit. "Can I help you?" He tucks the sheets into his inside pocket.
Acenia
"I need that back."
Rubi
"...and lily probably wants her stuff back
languidLachesis (GM)
Slim shrugs. "That's nice."
He adjusts his suit again. 'I need a new suit. Something nice."
He uses his ability IDENTITY THEFT.

languidLachesis (GM)
Slim snaps his fingers, and finds himself in a new suit, clearly quite expensive. He tosses Lily's sheet on the floor. "There you go."
Lily
Anything happen to Lily?
Miloko
"uhh, w-what the h-hell?"
languidLachesis (GM)
"I have business to attend to. Try not to get lost on your way out?"
Acenia
"What can be negotiated for the other sheet?" Acenia pokes her sprite-crown. Hopefully it will eat men like it said.
Darmok
Darmok will try and stop slim from leaving?
languidLachesis (GM)
Slim shrugs. "Well, I'd be willing to trade. That sheet for this one?" He pats his chest.
Rubi
"aww come on lily probably needs that for this dumb game"
languidLachesis (GM)
"And I need a sheet for shopping."
Rubi
"Get your own sheet?"
languidLachesis (GM)
Slim grins. "Fair enough. Boys?" The puppies advance on Rubi.

languidLachesis (GM)
rubi are you going to do anything to resist it and or reroll?
Rubi
not resist
languidLachesis (GM)
Rubi, you find yourself handing your sheet to the puppies, who whisk it away to Slim. He uses it to replace Acenia's sheet in his pocket, then dumps hers unceremoniously on the floor. "All better."
Rubi
"Not what i ment."
Acenia
Acenia picks up her sheet! But then asks, "And is the price of a sheet always another sheet? Could I not interest you in some majyyks?"
Miloko
"mr. p-pickens? is t-there any way we can w-walk out of h-here w-with ALL of our s-sheets?"
Acenia
"Certainly we all need our sheets."
languidLachesis (GM)
Slim sighs and shakes his head. "You're boring me." He heads for the door opposite you. Lily, Erisio, you can enter now.
Lily
Lily barges in, practically dragging Erisio.
Rubi
Rubi follows slim clearly not liking this outcome
GCA
"EXCUSE ME MR PICKINS"
Lily
"ERISIO. PEEPERS POINTED AT THE PICKINS."
"Haha, alliteration. I'm the best, it's me."
Miloko
Miloko goes with her sister
GCA
"SORRY FOR THE RUDE ENTRANCE I DIDNT GET A CHANCE TO KNOCK"
Darmok
Darmok places a hand on Miloko's shoulder, shaking his head.
Lily
"THIS IS NOT A FRIENDLY BUSINESS CALL ERISIO THERE IS NO NEED FOR POLITENESS THOUGH I ADMIRE YOUR DEDICATION."
GCA
Erisio grabs Lily's sheet from off the floor
languidLachesis (GM)
Slim ignores you all and heads down a flight of rickety stairs.
Erisio roll notice.
GCA
Rolling 4df+2

Lily
"WHERE DID HE GO. WHERE HAS HE GONE. WHAT DID YOU PICK UP. YOUR EYES ARE USELESS." Lily will attempt to sharpen the focus of her mental image by rolling Mind.
languidLachesis (GM)
Erisio! Someone has scrippled shit on Lily's sheet. It seems to have stuck.
Rubi
Rubi keeps following slim. not caring if he notices or not
languidLachesis (GM)

You can suddenly see through Erisio's eyes pretty well. it's not perfect, but workable.
Soeone has written on your sheet!
You know have the Extra: "Ruined Credit"
With Subheadings "MASSIVE GRIST-DEBT"
"In Collections"
"MASSIVE BOON-DEBT"

Lily
"Oh holy shit he ganked my RESOURCES," she growls. "DOWN THE STAIRCASE, MY SEEING-EYE HALFTROLL."
GCA
Erisio is already dragging Lily there
Miloko
"uhh, s-should we f-follow?"
Lily
She pulls her hand free. "Nah, don't worry, I got it now. Dialed in the focus a bit."
languidLachesis (GM)
Slim heads out the back door.
Lily
"STOP RIGHT THERE, CRIMINAL SCUM."
languidLachesis (GM)
Rubi, as you attempt to follow him, you're blocked, and a warning pops up. "ONLY_REAL_PEOPLE_CAN_GO_THIS_WAY.youmad.png?" The text is bright green.
Rubi
"I AM REAL PEOPLE" rubi spartan kicks the block warning
languidLachesis (GM)
The warning remains.
Acenia
Acenia follows Rubi?
GCA
"Lily, can you jack someone else's vision, I can't run after him if you're depending on me for sight"
Lily
"Aughhh, come on, I JUST got all tuned into yours."
GCA
"fiine"
Rubi
Rubi looks noticeably angry... "Yo guys get your asses over here"
Lily
"Turn around, Rubi needs something."
GCA
Erisio can only take so many commands. He turns around angrily and looks at Rubi
Acenia
Hopefully Acenia reaches Rubi. "Which way did he go?"
Lily
"OK, come this way, or stay there, I guess. I can sort of guide myself if you stand still? It's kind of like a video game." She starts walking. "Haha oh my god this is trippy as fuck."
Rubi
Rubi kicks the sign thing again "cant get in... he went that-a-way...
Darmok
Darmok will follow after Rubi.
Acenia
"Alright. I'll keep in touch." Acenia spends a fate point to go Ghost Gourd and starts running to catch up.

GCA
"Lily get on my back"
GCA
"I'm going to carry you"
Lily
"Haha, yesss." She jumps on. "ONWARDS, NOBLE STEED."

languidLachesis (GM)
Erisio, as you head out the door, with Lily on your shoulders, you completely forget that she adds two and a half feet to your height, and she fails to account for your error, causing her forehead to slam into the doorframe, right at the base of her new horns.
Rolling 4df+1

"I'll show you careful" He's going to try and do a full sprint to catch up with slim

Lily
"WAUUUGH OH GOD THIS WAS A HORRIBLE IDEA HOW ARE YOU GOING SO *FAST*"
languidLachesis (GM)
Erisio, though, you know what you're about, and now realizing the change in your height, you nimbly head along the street until slim is only a few meters ahead.
and this, children, is why piggy back rides are superior.
GCA
"Hey Slim!"
languidLachesis (GM)
He ignores you

GCA
"Duck and roll Lil!"
Lily
"YOU ASSSSSSSSSS," Lily screams as she flies through the air with all the grace of a blimp and crashes into the pavement.
languidLachesis (GM)
It is a bit disturbing, watching your body hurtle toward the ground like you've been spiked, seeing your body, head first, crush against the pavement. You slam face first into the pavement, taking 9 physical stress in road rash.
Lily
Lily will take her +3 box and the severe consequence "Epic Road Rash".
GCA
"Lily that was a terrible idea I am so sorry"
Rubi
Rubi gets out her laptop and sits at slims desk... comfy chair... might as well do something productive
Lily
out of curiosity, what color is her blood?
languidLachesis (GM)
fuschia
Lily
KNEW ITTTT
Lily groans. "That's it. I'm done. I'm just going to lie here forever."
"Put up a signpost. 'Here lies Lily Mavico. She died as she lived; screaming as she was flung from one place to another.'"
GCA
"You aren*t dead yet! C'mon, I promise I won't throw you again"
Lily
"Nope. If I get up, Acenia will just throw dog piss and shaving cream on me again."
GCA
Erisio will attempt to pick Lily up and get a move on
languidLachesis (GM)
Lily, and Erisio, you see through Erisio's vision a black tentacled portal open across the street from you.
Lily
Lily's breath quickens. "Run," she says hoarsely.
"FUCKING RUN, ERISIO. GET OUT OF HERE RIGHT NOW."
GCA
"Huh? But you're hurt!"
Lily
"GO GO GO GO GO GO PLEASE GO ERISIO"
GCA
"Maybe help is gonna come!"
Lily
"THAT'S NOT HELP."
Sami
Sami steps out of the portal, looking around as her vision adjusts to the light here.
GCA
"It's a black portal of death, but we can't assume its a bad thing"
Maenam
Maenam suddenly descends from the portal, making a three-point landing before popping up with a bubbly dance, "Sooooo coooooool!"
languidLachesis (GM)
The portal closes behind you.
GCA
"See? They look nice" He haves to the new people
GCA
*waves
Lily
She actually manages to wrench herself into a sitting position. "GET THE *FUCK* OUT OF HERE, ERISIO."
Sami
"Lily?"
Maenam
Maenam waves back happily, "OH EM GEE! Heeeeyyyyyyyy kids!"
GCA
"Hello! My sister is hurt and we got robbed, please help"
Lily
"Oh God. Oh God oh God oh God DON'T TALK TO THEM!"
GCA
"Huh? Lily what's up?"
Lily
"DON'T TALK TO THEM JUST PLEASE LEAVE I DON'T WANT ANYTHING TO HAPPEN TO YOU"
GCA
"Lily, are these people going to hurt you?"
Maenam
Maenam tilts her head a bit at Lily's reaction, "Uhh... clam down floordude, its all cools."
Darmok
Darmok looks up, in the direction of the doorway. He raises an eyebrow to Miloko.
GCA
"Are you guys gonna hurt her?"
GCA
He looks very suspiciously at them now
Miloko
"w-what's up?"
Sami
"I....I know why you're scared to see us Lily, but we're not here to hurt you. We're here to help. Technically I suppose that's what Libby would've said last time we met you, too, but I mean....um....I'm rambling."
Maenam
"Uhhh... like, no?"
Sami
Sami's staring at her feet.
Maenam
"We're totes here to give you guys a fin!"
Darmok
darmok jerks his thumb upstairs where Rubi is.
Lily
"Yeah, I've seen her definition of 'help'," she spits. "Why did she send you."
Miloko
"u-upstairs? a-alright?" she heads that way
Maenam
"Uh... she said... lemme see..."
Darmok
Darmok follows, tapping Rubi on the shoulder when they arrive.
Maenam
"That you fool kids were gonna get yourselves krilled?"
Sami
"I was told you guys might get yourselves killed if we're not here to help. So we came to stop that from happening."
Lily
"Also are you Merrow's mom? LOVE your stuff, seriously." She points to her scarf/blindfold. "This is one of your works from this universe!"
GCA
"Ok yeah kinda figured that when a guy kinda stole sheets"
Lily
"No one can fuck with her daughter but her, huh?" she says drily.
Maenam
Maenam makes a face like this "=:D"
"OH EM GEE ITS GOOOOOOORGEOUS!"
Lily
"RIGHT? It's the BEST."
GCA
He looks at Sami. "Please help" He says in the smallest voice
Miloko
"w-whatcha up to, sis?"
Sami
Sami catches Erisio's eye and nods.
"Shouldn't your team be bigger than this? Where's everyone else?"
Maenam
"TOOOOOTES the best! I like, GOTTA meet the uh... like.. other me?"
Sami
"You guys didn't split up did you?!"
Rubi
Rubi has Tiny out and is typing into her laptop. "nothing much just waiting around for you guys to get my sheet back... speaking of why are you here?"
Lily
"Rubi got cockblocked by some greentext alert."
GCA
"We kinda had too, Rubi cant leave because she doesnt exist"
Sami
"...greentext?"
Maenam
"=:O"
Darmok
Darmok glances between Rubi and Miloko, then gestures to the window.
Lily
"Mhm. Erisio didn't get close enough for me to get a good look at it, but jesus was that shit neon."
Sami
"...NEON green text?" Sami breaks out into a cold sweat.
Maenam
Maenam flinches as well.
Sami
"Where is Rubi?"
GCA
"Yeah, and it said png too"
Miloko
Miloko is gonna look out the window
Sami
"Shit. Shit. SHIT .SHIT."
GCA
"Back in Slim's office- OH CRAP SLIM!"
Sami
"Where is Rubi?!"
Rubi
Rubi capcalogs her laptop and looks out the window as well
Lily
She jabs a thumb in the direction of the staircase. "Back thataway. I can take you guys if one of you will lend me your eyes."
GCA
"Ma'am, please, commence in the chill, I said Slim's office"
languidLachesis (GM)
You can see a crowded street below.
Lily
"I don't trust Erisio not to throw me again."
GCA
"I'm sorry <:("
Sami
"Yeah, sure. Of course."
GCA
* "
Maenam
"Sami, you should like... go find Rubidude. I'll help Lily out."
Lily
"Also some bandages wouldn't go amiss. Jussayin."
Sami
"Thanks Maenam."
Lily
She gestures to herself. "Kind of bleeding everywhere over here."
GCA
"Ok, you*re Maenam, and you're Sami, cool"
Maenam
Maenam decaptchas a few swaths of tacky material and begins applying it to Lily's wounds."
GCA
"I am Erisio, this is Lily"
Sami
"Yeah, sorry I didn't introduce myself. I'm Sami Heston, the Witch of Breath and this is Maenam Niadis, the Witch of Blood."
Maenam
"Nice to meetcha Erisiodude and Lilydude!"
Sami
"Now I'm going to go check on Rubi,"
GCA
"Seer and thief of mind"
Lily
"Swanky." She raises an eyebrow. "Are you bandaging my wounds with scarves. Is that what's going on here."
Sami
Sami summons up a TAILWIND so she can run at top speed then dashes off in the direction Lily indicated.
Darmok
Darmok sighs heavily and OPENS THE WINDOW.
Maenam
"Fashion totes solves alllll problems, Lilybro"
Rubi
Rubi sticks her head out the window...
languidLachesis (GM)
It goes out easily.
Rubi
Rubi grumbles.
"Lets pillage this place first i want everything.
Lily
"I kind of doubt that." She shrugs. "Whatever. Acenia's got those plant bandagey things." She forces herself to stand, making grabby motions towards Erisio. "Hey. I need to lean on you."
GCA
Erisio makes himself Lean on abble
languidLachesis (GM)
Sami, you come upon a large house, with a human girl who looks like Beau sticking her head out of the window.
Miloko
"you k-know, the f-fact t-that you HAD to o-open y-your m-mouth is why y-you're in t-this s-situation?"
Sami
Sami stops short suddenly and has to catch her breath.
Lily
"Sweet." She begins limping back in the direction Sami went. "This could take a while."
Sami
"...you....you must be one of the players!"
languidLachesis (GM)
As she turns her head, you see she's not human at all, but half-troll.
Maenam
"I like, might be able to speed things up a bit."
languidLachesis (GM)
Based off those horns, half-tlaloc.
GCA
"I can carry you, and I'll watch for ALL doors this time, and no throwing"
Lily
"This is good." She turns to Maenam. "That is ALSO good."
Rubi
Rubi looks down and waves "Hi lady I'm Rubi..."
Maenam
Maenam decaptchas This Ship Sails Itself.
Sami
"YOU'RE Rubi?!" Sami looks concerned for a moment. "Erisio said something about neon green text! What happened? Were there underscores?"
Was it Lily?
GCA
"That is a boat"
GCA
"Maenam, Maenam, Maenam, this is not an ocean, like, you do realize that, right?"
Miloko
"umm, who are you?"
Sami
Was that to me?
Miloko
yes
Maenam
Maenam rolls her eyes, "It's a FLYING boat, duh Erisiodude." She hops in and motions for the other two to squeeze in with her
Sami
"I'm Sami. We're co-players."
Lily
"Don't think we can all fit." She concentrates again. "Onnnnne moment..."
nvm
GCA
Erisio sits in the pilot seat
GCA
"I cannot drive!"
Miloko
"s-sami? w-wait, H-HESTON?"
Sami
"Yeah. Sami Heston. Witch of Breath. I'm the mom of two of your players, actually."
Lily
Lily hops in behind him. "I can't either!"
Rubi
Rubi waves to Sami again "come to the door and see it... itll be easier to talk that way then yelling down there" Rubi heads to the back door
Darmok
Darmok shrinks back into the room, making sure he's not in view of the window. He breaks out in a cold sweat.
Lily
"And I'm 18, so that's kind of sad."
GCA
Erisio tries his best to fly slowly
Lily
"FASTER. THERE ARE NO SPEED LIMITS IN A FANTASY WORLD."
Miloko
"D-Darmok, are you a-alright?"
GCA
"Except for brick walls and pain"
Sami
"Darmok?! Darmok is here?!" Sami's eyes light up with glee.
Lily
"Well, at least you'll suffer the brunt of the injuries this time."
"Now seriously, go a little faster than a snail, maybe?"
Maenam
Maenam giggles as she flies along, now wearing her witch jammy-jams. "Its totes cool, it like, almost literally sails itself."
Darmok
Darmok flushes purple and attempts to hide in the shadows, motioning for Miloko to turn around.
GCA
Speed of snail plus like 1
Lily
Lily is not amused.
GCA
faster than a light jog
Sami
"Oh god. Darmok! Hi! I'm your mommy!" She beams a little, then her face goes serious. "Oh, sweetie, I'm sorry, I have to focus right now. But let's talk once we get a moment! I want to hear all about you!"
Miloko
"fine?" she turns around, obviously unhappy about it
Rubi
Rubi keeps tapping the green text seeing if it gets lighter at all
Darmok
I'd like to use Vorhee's Vanish.
languidLachesis (GM)
Where are you going?
Darmok
Anywhere in the Area, right?
Miloko
away from me *sad face*
Maenam
"Oh oh, I toooootes already have an idea for like, some spiffy sailing outfits! Water your opinions on paisley?"
languidLachesis (GM)
Yeah.
GCA
"Whats?"
Darmok
Somewhere where I can observe Sami from outside, but not be seen.
languidLachesis (GM)
You can appear in one of the nearby houses, but you'll need to roll stealth.
Darmok
Ok.
Lily
"Paisley's neat."
Maenam
Maenam grins, "Yessssss totes already got it down!"
Darmok
I don't have stealth.
Lily
"Sweeeeeeeeeet."
Sami
Luckily for you Sami has crap Notice
languidLachesis (GM)
Look's like you're doing it live then ;)
Darmok
Rolling 4df
( D0 D- D0 D+ ) = -1
languidLachesis (GM)
Sami, Miloko, Rubi, roll notice.
Miloko
Rolling 4df+1
( D+ D- D0 D0 ) +1 = 0
Sami
Rolling 4dF+1
( D+ D0 D+ D- ) +1 = 2
Sami is distracted by the Rubi situation right now though. I'm willing to concede the contest.
Rubi
Rolling 4df
( D0 D- D+ D+ ) = 1
languidLachesis (GM)
It's fine. Rubi, Miloko, and Sami, you all see Darmok in a curtained window next door.
Darmok
Darmok is watching Sami eagerly, believing himself to be invisible.
Miloko
Miloko rolls her eyes
Sami
Sami looks confused for a moment as she's not sure how Darmok got there all of a sudden, but she has to make sure Jack's not about to kill them all through shenanigans.
Miloko
"err, s-sorry a-about him, he's not the b-best w-with p-people?"
GCA
"Hey so Maenam, what's up with the ship? Are you like big into sailor themes?"
Rubi
Rubi starts looking around the office "Get your butt up here Sami I wanna talk!" Rubi goes back into the room searching around for anything slim would find valuable
Maenam
"Oh uh... its kinda weird, but like, a bunch of them got them one day. Like, suuuuupes weird, but they come in handy!"
GCA
"Totally wizard"
Lily
"Man, why don't WE get cool flying ships?"
Sami
Sami gives Miloko a sad look. "Is it my fault? Am I....not a good mom?"
Maenam
"OH EM GEE IT COULD HAVE BEEN A WIZARD!"
Miloko
"I d-don't k-know, he n-never r-really t-talked a-about it and I d-din't w-want to p-press?"
Sami
"Are you two close?"
Lily
"...You are very very different from the Condesce I know."
GCA
"Yeah, the Condesce is kinda nice, but she can be scary"
GCA
"Like, invade your dreams and give you mental scars forever scary"
Miloko
She holds up her hand before forgetting her ring is gone, she sighs "y-yeah, m-matesprits?"
Maenam
"Woah, that's like.. totes legitly unlegit?"
Miloko
*remembering
Sami
"Oh! That makes us practically family! Or something. I don't know how it works with trolls, really."
Rubi
"Saying their close is like peanut butter and jelly." Rubi chuckles
Miloko
what the fuck me
Lily
"Or give you traditional troll etiquette lessons for playing a prank on her son," she says sourly.
Darmok
Darmok sees everyone go inside and will climb up the side of the house to watch them like a creeper.
languidLachesis (GM)
Roll Athletics.
Maenam
"Oh oh, that totes reminds me, what are Merrow and Milly like?"
Darmok
Rolling 4df+2
( D+ D+ D- D- ) +2 = 4
languidLachesis (GM)
you make it up the side of the house easily.
Sami
"Oh, we definitely have to catch up too then. I have to catch up with EVERYONE. But I really ought to focus on this thing with Rubi."
languidLachesis (GM)
The three of you in the room can see him watching in the window.
Sami
Sami goes to examine the text that Rubi's running into.
Rubi
Rubi kicks it. "see?"
languidLachesis (GM)
Sami, this is definitely Jack's handiwork.
Lily
"Milly's a cutie. Supes shy. Merrow's pretty smart but gets on my nerves a whole fucking bunch sometimes. We're trying to be buds again, though."
Sami
"Shit. It's him all right."
Rubi
"Whos him and do i have to kick his ass too?"
Maenam
"Awwww, I soooooo totes can't wait to meet them!"
Sami
"How the fuck is he involved in all this? He's dead! We killed him! I've literally talked to his ghost!"
Darmok
Darmok will attempt to climb through the window since they're downstairs.
GCA
"Merrow is nice, everyone on this team is nice, everyone in this game is nice, except for slim. He's a dick"
languidLachesis (GM)
Athletics again then.
Darmok
Rolling 4df+2
( D+ D- D0 D- ) +2 = 2
languidLachesis (GM)
eh, good enough.
Rubi
"Whats a ghost in a video game? just another guy i guess"
Sami
"Yeah, except this one's a hacker ghost who can and has changed the code of the game."
Darmok
Darmok is looking for Miloko.
Rubi
"Wait you can do that?"
Sami
"I don't really understand it. You'd be better off asking Doir. But he was asleep when Libby got me and Maenam."
"I've studied a lot in the last five years, but I still don't really know computers."
Rubi
"Don't worry miss you gave me some inspiration"
Miloko
"oh boy, h-here we go?"
Sami
Actually, that's a good point--can I make a Lore check to be able to tell if this is something that Jack could've done before he died? Or is that beyond the scope of something Sami would've learned reading in the public section of the library?
languidLachesis (GM)
sure!
GCA
also, has the ship reached slim's office?
Sami
Rolling 4dF+3
( D0 D+ D+ D+ ) +3 = 5
languidLachesis (GM)
yes, you know Jack made major edits to most worlds.
Rubi
Rubi uncapchalogs a laptop and begins to see if she can mess with the code at all
Sami
"Hmm. He may have done this before he died. I think the worlds persist between sessions or something--my denizen was a former player after all, and apparently had been there a while. And Jack's editted a lot of them. "
Maenam
I'd say we've been sailing long enough but its up to GM
Sami
"So he MIGHT not be active."
languidLachesis (GM)
how are you attempting it, Rubi
and yeah Maemae that's fine.
GCA
"Cool we're here, I drove a ship!" Erisio gets out and holds out his hand to Lily
Sami
"But now the question is why does it think you're not real, Rubi?"
Rubi
Seeing if there's wifi or something on planet and then seeing if its affected by the game
languidLachesis (GM)
languidLachesis (GM) reminds Erisio and Lily that they are shipped.
Rubi
Slim took my character sheet after i got acenia's back...
languidLachesis (GM)
There is wifi, but it doesn't seem to be connected to the game code.
Sami
"Have you gotten attacked by any Void players or enemies or anything?"
Lily
Lily takes it grinning. "You were a FANTASTIC driver, bro."
Maenam
Maenam grins, "Totes awesome driving skills Erisio!"
Rubi
Rubi shakes her head "I'm gonna need an upgrade or something... no void powers to speak of yet..."
GCA
"I have never touched a car before Miss Maenam"
Sami
"Hmm. Are any of you Heroes of Hope? Hope players can make unreal things real."
Darmok
Darmok sighs dejectedly and heads down the stairs toward where Sami is, hoping to find Miloko.
Rubi
"Theres thiago but i havent seen him yet"
Miloko
"T-Thiago is a p-page of h-hope?"
Sami
"Thiago? Why does that name sound familiar?"
"Oh, a page? That won't help."
"Unless he's god tiered."
Rubi
Rubi puts her laptop up against the green text
Lily
"Coulda fooled me," she says, playfully hip-checking Erisio.
Rubi
"I hope this doesnt work"
Maenam
Maenam spots Miloko and makes this face " =:D!"
Sami
"I mean I guess maybe it was just Doir who didn't figure it out until he God Tiered, but he never seemed to have any luck with his own stuff until he did."
GCA
"Doir?"
Darmok
Darmok steps into the landing, shaking his head. "Jack, Goes Through The Door."
GCA
"Oh hey! Is Doir with you guys?"
Lily
Lily perks up at the mention of Doir.
Sami
"No. He was supposed to, but he was asleep when we left."
Miloko
"hey D-Darmok, so n-nice of you to j-join us?"
GCA
"Damnit Doir"
Lily
"God DAMN IT." She sighs. "This is EXACTLY like him."
Sami
"It's too bad, he has a Backdoor trick that lets him hack the game code like Jack does."
Maenam
"OH EM GEEEEEEEE HIIII MILOKO!"
Darmok
Darmok nervously extends his hand to Sami.
GCA
Ok, are there any puppies in the room still?
Sami
Sami looks over to him.
Maenam
Maenam is going to attempt to hug Miloko
Sami
"Oh, hi Darmok! Did you decide you wanted to meet me after all?"
Rubi
"I'll have to talk to doir about this then... maybe i could like... " she looks at the group
Sami
Sami gives him her hand.
Miloko
Miloko is frightened and confused by this turn of events
GCA
If not, Erisio is gonna look for some puppies
Darmok
He flips it over, and pushes the sleeve (?) up to see if anything is on her forearm.
languidLachesis (GM)
Sami do you want to contest it, or will you let him?
Sami
Let him.
It doesn't even occur to her to keep it a secret.
languidLachesis (GM)
Ok. Darmok, she does have the writing on her arm.
Sami
As Sami sees Darmok reading it, she looks him in the eye to gage his reaction.
Darmok
Darmok sighs dejectedly, then gives her a hug.
Rubi
"...did you idiots even get my sheet back?"
Maenam
"Milly you are tooooootes more adorbs then I ever thought! Oh em gee oh em geeeeee!!!'
Sami
"Whoa!" Sami is surprised by the hug, but returns it once she realizes what is happening.
GCA
"No, but I have an idea on how"
Sami
"Darmok....do you know what my tattoo means?"
GCA
"If I could find a puppy, maybe they can help"
Miloko
"um, t-thanks? m-miss?"
Darmok
Darmok lifts his skirt to reveal a patch of scars on one of his legs through a hole in his pants.
Maenam
"Oh! Uhh..." she lets go of Miloko, "err... sorry I totes forgot. Uh... I'm Maenam! I'm like... sorta your mom I think?"
Rubi
Rubi facepalms and goes back to slims office looking for slim's mask
Sami
"Oh....oh, sweetie." Sami gives him a look of pure sympathy, and hugs him harder.
Darmok
Rubi, roll notice
Lily
"Haha OK not even gonna try to figure out what's going on over there."
Rubi
Rolling 4df
( D- D- D0 D+ ) = 0
languidLachesis (GM)
Lol nice one darmok
rofl
Miloko
"m-mother?" she has a look of complete shock
languidLachesis (GM)
so yeah you see nothing Rubi
Lily
"Erisio. Help. We're the only ones who can escape the reunions." She grasps his hand dramatically. "We are the last bastion of sanity in a world of estrogen and tearful reunions."
Rubi
Rubi's gonna go through the desk drawers to see if he kept anything in there
GCA
"Im gonna find a puppy"
Maenam
Maenam nods, "yuuuuup... like, its tooootes awesome to meet you!" She smiles and holds out a hand.
Lily
"Great. I'll come with."
GCA
May I roll notice or investigate to look for a puppy, or are they easy enough to find by just looking?
languidLachesis (GM)
roll investigate rubi
the puppies are all down for their naps
Rubi
Rolling 4df+1
( D0 D0 D- D- ) +1 = -1
languidLachesis (GM)
except the ones that went with slim.
you see nothing rubi.
Miloko
"erm, s-sorry, I j-just d-didn't e-expect t-this s-sort of r-reaction f-from a t-tyrianblood?"
GCA
Erisio is going to focus really hard on what the puppies may know about Slim's current location, and try and steal it from the sleeping pup
Rubi
Rubi throws out some curses and puts her head on the desk
Sami
Sami pulls away from Darmok. "Okay, we're going to have to talk more about this. But we should probably try to get Rubi out of here first, okay?"
Maenam
Maenam snickers, "psssh... all that blood stuff is just stupid anyways. Its toooootes cool as a sea cucumber."
Darmok
Darmok grumbles and heads back upstairs.
Sami
"Did I....say something wrong?" Sami looks dejected.
Darmok
I'd like to throw rubi out the window. How do i do that.
Sami
Haha.
languidLachesis (GM)
Well, you start with a strife.
Darmok
Rolling 4df+4
( D0 D+ D+ D+ ) +4 = 6
languidLachesis (GM)
ok Rubi, contest that.
strife or athletics.
Sami
Or concede, if you like. ^_^
Rubi
Rolling 4df+2
( D0 D+ D- D- ) +2 = 2
Sami
It'll be six stress though. Which is not insignificant.
Darmok
Ok, now what?
languidLachesis (GM)
You declare you're forgoing the damage to grapple. Then roll physique.
Sami
Sami could totally prevent you from landing badly if she sees it. =P
Darmok
I'm forgoing the damage to grapple.
Rolling 4df+3
( D0 D- D0 D0 ) +3 = 0
languidLachesis (GM)

Rubi

Rubi
Rolling 4df+1

languidLachesis (GM)

Okay, It's now Rubi's turn. Rubi, you can attempt to take control of the grapple with a contested physique, or attempt to escape with a contested athletics.
Rubi
Gonna escape
Rolling 4df

Sami looks around, still downstairs, and realizes Rubi has gotten away from her.
Darmok
Rolling 4df+2

languidLachesis (GM)
You escape
GCA
"Lily, help me steal info from these sleeping dogs"
Rubi
"What the hell darmok?!"
Lily
Lily will scan the puppies' minds for info as well.
Darmok
Darmok gestures to the Window.
Lily
Rolling 4df+2
( D- D0 D- D- ) +2 = 1
Sami
Sami comes up stairs after a bit. "Darmok, did you see where Rubi went?"
languidLachesis (GM)
Rubi is right there, Sami
Sami
"Oh, there you are Rubi!"
Rubi
Rubi's on the opposite end of the room. "i am not going through the damn 2nd floor window."
languidLachesis (GM)
And Lily, what kind of information are you looking for.
Sami
"Huh? Oh, hey, yeah, have you tried going out the window?"
GCA
we're looking for where Slim might have gone. A mansion or personal bunker of some kind
Rubi
"i havent tried the front door yet either
Lily
^
Sami
Sami walks over to the window and jumps out, hovering just outside.
"Here, take my hand."
Rubi
...
"what i wouldnt give for a flying mech right now." She extends her hand and grabs sami "Best not drop me"
Sami
Sami chuckles. "Don't worry. I've been flying almost since I entered the game! Everyone else had to wait till they were god tier."
languidLachesis (GM)
These puppies are not privy to their master's idle works.
Sami
"Your mom and I used to go on romantic broom rides together sometimes. It was really nice."
Lily
She shrugs. "I got nothing."
GCA
Erisio will look around the office for anything of use
Rubi
"Wait you and my mother were a thing?"
Rubi gets into the windowsill
Sami
"Oh....right. I forgot that this world's versions of Beau and Sami weren't together."
"Who did Beau end up with here?"
Rubi
"tlaloc... he's kind of a sweet guy... id ask milly about him though"
Sami
Sami winces at the name, then gives a forced smile. "Oh, so your mom and dad are still together. That's....so sweet."
"...not a lot of the postscratch kids can say that I bet."
Rubi
"About that..."
Maenam
Maenam rummages around in her purse for a moment before producing a pair of scarves with a brown and purple pattern. "Oh yeah, I nearly forgot. I wanted to, like, give you and Darmy these!"
She hands them to Miloko.
GCA
should I roll investigate?
languidLachesis (GM)
yeah
GCA
Rolling 4df
( D+ D- D+ D+ ) = 3
languidLachesis (GM)
Erisio, you find a gun.
GCA
"Oh sweet! Bang bang!"
Miloko
"o-okay?" she puts on her own scarf "s-speaking of, we s-should p-probably f-find the o-others?" she takes the stairs up
GCA
"Guys I have a gun!"
GCA
 :D
GCA
At least his hand is not on the trigger yet
Lily
"You should maybe stop waving that around."
Maenam
Maenam follows after "Shore we should OH MY GOD ERY WHY DO YOU HAVE A GUN!?"
Lily
"Just a suggestion."
GCA
"I found it!"
GCA
"In the office!"
GCA
"Aren't I the best Sherlock ever?!"
Lily
"You're Watson at best, hon."
Rubi
Rubi gets ready to hop out the window
GCA
"RUDE I found a guN! That's a clue!"
Lily
"Good job. Maybe you should give it to me so I can inspect it for evidence."
GCA
He captchalouges it
Lily
"Orrrr do that."
GCA
Erisio continues looking, now pumped on his sherlockian quest
Sami
Sami prepares to catch Rubi.
GCA
Rolling 4df

languidLachesis (GM)

GCA
"Aw, all he had was a gun? lame"
Maenam
"Uh... yeah, he's totes Doir's kid..."
Rubi
Rubi hops out!
Lily
"Yyyep."
Darmok
Darmok will climb out of the window after Rubi, climbing down the side of the building.
GCA
Is the gun loaded?
Miloko
"I do not f-feel s-safe r-right now, w-with you p-playing w-with t-that gun and all?"
GCA
"I'm not even holding it!"
Darmok
When he gets to the bottom he will call for Miloko. "M-mmm-Millllokkoko."
languidLachesis (GM)
Did you check?
GCA
Erisio will check that the gun is loaded or not, taking care that it isnt gonna fire
languidLachesis (GM)
how will he do this?
Miloko
Miloko will head outside a serious look of concern on her face "umm, w-what's w-wrong, D-Darmok?"
Darmok
He will motion for you to jump.
GCA
He's gonna try and take the thing that has the ammo out. Should I roll lore for knowing how to do that?
GCA
(I do not know the technical term for it)
Rubi
is it a revolver or pistol?
Miloko
Miloko is gonna jump
Rubi
"Sami?"
languidLachesis (GM)
revolver
GCA
"So this part is the shooty part, and this is the trigger part, so this must be the ammo part!"

languidLachesis (GM)
you may attempt to remove the ammo.
hue
GCA
He attempts to remove the ammo,

while making sure that the shooty bit is not endangering anyone

and falls over
languidLachesis (GM)
Acenia.
Rubi
"Sami can we go get my sheet while were flying out there?"
languidLachesis (GM)
You followed Slim to a large casino.
Acenia
yes?
Lily
"God damn it get up I need you to see."
Sami
"You're missing your sheet? Why don't you just get your server player to deploy a new one?"
Lily
"It's just a bullet wound, walk it off."
Maenam
Maenam blinks before stomping over and CAREFULLY taking the gun from Erisio's hand. "I think like, it'd be a good idea if I held onto this."
Sami
"I mean obviously you couldn't while you were stuck in THERE, but now that you're out..."
languidLachesis (GM)
Inside, you see Slim gambling and drinking heavily, putting it all on Rubi's account.
Sami
"Oh, wait! Are the gates closed here, too?"
Rubi
"Gates?"
Acenia
She's going to wait until he pulls Rubi's sheet out before getting very close and swiping it. And then running like hell.
Sami
"Oh, man, you guys don't even have the Astrolabe, or Libby to make tenta-portals. Or Ryspor to teleport you."
Maenam
Unless there are objections, Maenam is going to captchalog Slim's gun into her purse."
Rubi
"No... but we do have a base thats connected... and kind of not connected
"No... but we do have a base thats connected... and kind of not connected"
Sami
"You'll have to show me later. But yeah, I can fly fast as the wind if you tell me where we need to go."
Lily
"OK no but are you dead or not. Do you need medical attention. Groan once for yes."
Sami
"Like that's not a pun or a figure of speech."
Rubi
"seeing how acenia isnt with us..." Rubi giggles though
languidLachesis (GM)
After racking up quite a debt, he pulls out the sheet to borrow more money against the planet earth.
Sami
"Who's Acenia?"
languidLachesis (GM)
You'll need to steal it super quick.
GCA
There is nothing but sobs and groans from Erisio
Maenam
Maenam takes out another swatch of fabric and places it carefully over Erisio's bullet wound. "Deeeefinately Doir's kid."
Rubi
"teammate. shes cool and she has a witch hat"
Acenia

"That's more than one groan. We need to set clearer boundaries here, I think."
Sami
"Hmm. If any of you are super close to her, maybe Maenam could cast a spell to find her using Blood. If we can get her to use it. I don't think she likes her powers."
Lily
She calls upstairs, "YO SAMI, WE GOT INJURED."
Sami
"Huh?"
languidLachesis (GM)
Rolling 4df+3

Sami
"You want to go in, or you want to stay out here so you don't get stuck again? I should go help."
Lily
"ERISIO FUCKING SHOT HIMSELF."
Sami
"What?! How did he do that?!"
GCA
"Why would you let me hold a gun do you guys know nothing about gun safety"
languidLachesis (GM)
He manages to keep a grip on it as you grab it. "What are you doing?" Slim almost seems confused.
Lily
"HE'S DOIR'S SON. YOU TELL ME."
Rubi
"Ill go inside. you seem to be able to fly well so ill use you as personal transport!" Rubi heads inside
Sami
"He's Doir's son?!" Sami thinks for a moment. "Of course he's Doir's son."
Maenam
"Didn't you like, captchalog it? And then take it out again?"
GCA
"Who is Doir and why do I feel like he's a metaphor for stupid"
Sami
Sami comes back in to look over Erisio.
Lily
"My dad. And your dad too, according to the family tree."
GCA
"You guys fucking suck"
Sami
"...right. Your dad." Sami looks down at her feet as Lily says that.
Rubi
Rubi looks at eriso as well... "dude... come on i was gone 10 seconds what happened"
Lily
"...Yeah." She sighs. "I'll let you look him over."
Maenam
Maenam rolls her eyes and helps Erisio to his feet, "Clam down Ery, the like, big bad gun is gone."
GCA
"Wow it's almost like there's still a BULLET INSIDE ME"
Rubi
"I got screwdrivers wanna take it out?"
Acenia
"It wasn't yours. Why not do business honestly instead of sponging off others? Land of Charlatans indeed..."
Acenia tries for the sheet again
Sami
"Maenam....I know healing is more Sylph stuff than Witch stuff, but Seriad and Kate aren't here. Do you think maybe you could....I don't know, manipulate his blood to push the bullet out or something?"
Rubi
"Healings a sylph thing? I'm a sylph of life..."
Maenam
"Um... I guess it wouldn't hurt to try right?"
languidLachesis (GM)

Rolling 4df+5
( D0 D0 D- D+ ) +5 = 4
languidLachesis (GM)
do you need the link acenia?
Miloko
"I t-told you I d-didn't f-feel s-safe?"
Acenia
just making sure its hers, and noting anything handwritten
languidLachesis (GM)
Rubi, you can add +4 to your roll.
Acenia
mostly just making sure it's hers
languidLachesis (GM)
Acenia, it is hers, she's apparently HEAVILY in debt now, with a couple of loan sharks.
Acenia
Does it look like it can be erased?
languidLachesis (GM)
no
Rubi
"well i guess its my turn..." Rubi tries to focus putting her hands onto Erisio
Rolling 4df+5
( D0 D- D0 D+ ) +5 = 4
Acenia
Okay well Acenia is stashing it in her hat and running back to where she thinks she came from.
Miloko
"he s-should h-have to l-live w-with t-that w-wound? the p-price of s-stupidity?"
GCA
"You're taking the bullet out right?"
languidLachesis (GM)
roll lore, acenia
GCA
"Sh-Shut up Miloko, I didn't see you offer to take the gun away from the clearly stupid person"
Rubi
Shes trying to force out the bullet with her powers and then letting it heal as it exits
Acenia
Rolling 4df+4
( D0 D+ D0 D+ ) +4 = 4
Sami
Hey, LL--Sami's in he same zone as her, right?
As Rubi I mean?
Lily
"No, we're leaving it in you as a memento," Lily says flatly.
languidLachesis (GM)
Rubi, you'll force what's left of the bullet out.
Rubi
is it a... danger zone?
Sami
She's got that stunt that should up her bonus from invokes from teamwork to +3 a piece.
languidLachesis (GM)
Most of it has been absorbed into his body at this point.
Sami
Though it looks like she would've succeeded anyway.
languidLachesis (GM)
yes sami
The wound heals
And all you have left is a tiny bone white shard, that tingles when you touch it.
Sami
"Whoa. What kind of bullet is that?"
Rubi
"...I DID IT!"
languidLachesis (GM)
erisio, I wont make you roll for this.
The remains of the bullet are a splinter from Yggdrasil.
Maenam
Maenam offers Rubi a celebratory high five.
Sami
"Yeah, Sylphs are a healing class! And Sylph of Life is probably about as powerful as it gets, for healers."
GCA
"Duuude, that's home"
Rubi
Rubi high fives!
GCA
"Wait why does Slim have a piece of home in his bullet?"
Sami
"When you really learn what you're doing, you're going to be an incredible healer."
GCA
"Oh that fucko is going DOWN"
Miloko
"oh, g-great?" Miloko looks uneasy
Rubi
"It is? Hmm... maybe we should try it on lily... she looks hurt as well"
Acenia
Is Acenia close?
Sami
"But in the meantime, you guys probably need to do what we just did when using your aspects. Work together, or find ways to boost yourself before attempting it. +1 isn't much, but it's enough to work with if you arrange things right!"
languidLachesis (GM)
yes, Acenia. You're outside the house.
Lily
"What an incredibly astute observation," she says, wincing even as she says it.
Acenia
Acenia will enter the house, dropping the Ghost Gourd.
Rubi
"Boost ourselves?"
Sami
"Yeah. Like by arranging things in your favor. Studying to give yourself boosts from Lore, or concentrating to give yourself boosts from Will."
Rubi
"oh I think i understand..." Rubi looks at lily
Maenam
"Oh! Hey, you're the one from the picture of Merry right? Acenia?"
Rubi
"we
Lily
"Oh whoa hey Acenia's back." She scowls. "Dammit, Erisio, sit up. I'm getting an eyeful of ceiling right now."
Rubi
'll i finished with the test subject. shall i try using it on you?"
GCA
"Oh wow, I feel so loved guys"
Acenia
"I'll come back to that in a moment, sorry..." Acenia looks for Rubi.
GCA
"Stupid, test subject, what's next?"
Sami
Sami looks at Erisio now with concern. "Do you feel all right?"
GCA
"Oh yeah! And "Doir's kid", you assholes"
Sami
"Hey....if you're Doir's other kid, that makes you Null's son, right?"
Rubi
"I was joking erisio... doctor humor!"
GCA
"Wow it took someone that long to ask that Sami! Thanks" He says flatly
Miloko
"the t-truth h-hurts s-sometimes?"
Lily
"It's not like it's a BAD thing , it's just...kind of a bad thing."
Rubi
Rubi looks at acenia and waves
Sami
"I'm sorry, Erisio. I'm being pulled in lots of different directions right now. I'm really not trying to overlook you."
Lily
"Shit. He's not that bad, I promise. Just don't mention your lack of sex ed around him."
GCA
"Yep, bingo Sami. Nullar Etrors, new personal punching bag of the session, glad to meet you"
GCA
*son of
Acenia
Acenia pulls Rubi's character sheet out from under her hat. "Ah.... some damage was done, but at least it's back..." She hands it over.
Sami
"Null and I were sort-of-almost-Moirails, you know."
Rubi
Rubi hops up and hugs Acenia
Sami
"Then she disappeared. I like to think she's somewhere out there still."
Rubi
She whispers into her ear "thanks for being competent"
Maenam
"Ery, you're Nully's kid too!? OH OH do you talk backwards a lot too!?"
GCA
"Huh?"
GCA
"Why would I talk backwards"
Darmok
Darmok wanders around outside, kicking rocks.
Acenia
Acenia hugs back, confused. "Uhm... sure? What did I miss?"
GCA
He attempts to, but it sounds like gibberish
Maenam
Maenam looks completely crestfallen. "O...oh... uh, nevermind, its all cool."
Rubi
"Erisio shot himself... figured out how to use my powers so... im gonna try healing lily since she looks like a crumpled mess of flesh right now"
Sami
"It's okay. You don't have to push yourself to be like Null. You're your own person."
Lily
"That is the question." She starts unwrapping the impromptu fabric bandages. "That'd be awesome, Rubi."
Sami
"I still can't believe they paired up Null and Doir though. Those two hated each other."
GCA
"Sorry to disappoint, but hey! At least you all get to have free shots at calling me stupid all day every day!"
Rubi
Rubi claps her hands a bit. Hey guys shall we give it another go?"
Sami
"Why would I want to do that?"
Maenam
"Like, to be fair, that was TOOOOOTES Rilly's idea."
GCA
"Definitely Doir's kid. You know, that thing you all called me like 5 minutes ago"
Acenia
"What... " Acenia's eyes glaze over. "No, no. You should use her jar of pee. She bought it to use it, you know."
Sami
"Yeah, that sounds like something Rilset would do. I'll bet Scarlet laughed her ass off about it, too."
Lily
Lily reaches over and begins whapping his arm. "Shoooooosh. All is well. You're not stupid. You're a cool kid who knows a ton about botany."
Sami
"...Lily bought a jar of pee?"
Rubi
"Id rather use jarate on that slim guy"
Sami
"Oh, Lily." Sami shakes her head.
"Is this some sort of family tradition?"
Rubi
Now shshh give me a sec i gotta focus on this
Lily
"And for FUCK'S SAKE, ACENIA." She stands, angered. "FINE. GREAT." She unwraps the scarf around her head, revealing her lack of eyes. "POUR AWAY."
Sami
"Hey, do you need my help on this? Hang on, let me give it a look."
Sami wants to use Lore again to assist.
Rolling 4dF+3
( D- D0 D+ D+ ) +3 = 4
Sami blanches as she sees the eyes again.
"Oh god."
GCA
"Acenia, please, just use the actual medicine"
Rubi
Rubi tunes everyone else out but sami and focuses on lily
Acenia
"Holy Hyacinths, Lily! Opthalmic solution isn't going to help you now!" Acenia's jaw drops.
Lily
"Yeah, no SHIT," she says with the utmost venom.
Acenia
"What did you do?"
GCA
Erisio places himself between Acenia and Lily. "No fighting!"
Sami
"You know....Null had some robotic eyes she used when Jack took hers. I think they were originally supposed to be Libby's, but Null ended up with them. Libby hated her for it."
Lily
"Oh, I'd love to tell you, believe me. You'd probably get a kick out of it." She scowls. "But I can't."
Acenia
Acenia uncaptchalogues.... she doesn't really have much to help? "Uh... I have Burn cream and Sutures and the Antiseptic I tried to give you last time..."
Sami
"I'm so sorry I couldn't stop this, Lily."
Miloko
"uhh?"
Sami
"I'm going to do everything I can to help you from here on in."
She sighs. "Assuming I have a choice in the matter."
Rubi
Rubi puts her hands on Lily's head and stomach then uses Copycat to try and heal Lily up more
GCA
"Lily you should get a seeing eye dog from this world"
Rubi
Rolling 4df+7
( D- D- D- D+ ) +7 = 8
languidLachesis (GM)
Rubi you can heal 8 physical stress, but her eyes seem to be unable to heal.
Acenia
"If you think any of it is useful, let me know..."
Sami
Sami sighs. "Yeah, I was afraid that would be the case."
Lily
"It's not your fault, Sami. Not even you could go against someone as batshit insane as her." She smiles. "You're practically my big sis. I know you well enough that I'm not gonna start hating you for something you didn't even want to do in the first place."
Acenia
"Really though, why are you so messed up like that? Was something outside that got you?"
Maenam
"Dawwww, that's so sweet Lilybro!"
Rubi
Rubi looks at lily "Huh? I cant heal the eyes..."
Lily
"Heh." She giggles with a slightly unnerving edge. "I'm not surprised."
Rubi
"still... I DID IT AGAIN! WOO!"
Sami
"Yeah. I haven't seen Sylphs that were able to restore lost limbs or organs or things yet. Even Katie, and she rolls back time to heal."
GCA
"Yeah, LIly, sorry for messing you up"
Maenam
Maenam offers another high five.
Rubi
Rubi does a little jump with this high five
Lily
"Just don't pull a stunt like that again and we're good."
GCA
"But maybe one day...."
Sami
"If you god tier, you might be able to get your eyes back, then."
GCA
"Next time, I'll be the softball"
Lily
"Perf."
Rubi
"Well Sami i guess i have to work to get past that block now wont I?"
Acenia
Acenia sighs... "I'll ask Darmok if you won't say." Acenia proceeds to look around for him.
Sami
"We can just go out the window again, right?"
Rubi
Rubi grins "I got my sheet back... but lets go!"
GCA
"So uh guys, what do we do now?"
Lily
"It's not that I won't say. It's that I literally CANNOT FUCKING SAY."
Sami
Sami looks guilty.
Miloko
"g-guys, we s-should s-stay t-together?"
Sami
"Yeah....that'll happen."
GCA
"Like, before the goal was get Lily's sheet"
GCA
"Now what?"
Sami
"Sorry....Acenia was it?"
Acenia
"Hm?"
Rubi
Rubi facepalms "sorry too excited..."
Sami
"There are some things that can compel people not to talk about things. Lily's come afoul of one, it would seem."
Darmok
Darmok sits down outside and tries to go to sleep.
Sami
"I'm not sure if Darmok will be able to either, knowing what I know. But you can give it a shot."
Lily
oh, darmok, i need to rp with you if you have the time
Darmok
i'll see you guys later
Acenia
"Ah..."
Sami
Oh, you're leaving?
Lily
orrr not
Darmok
yeah. I'm really tired.
Sami
Ah, okay.
Acenia
sleep well bruh
Lily
get some sleep, we'll rp later
Sami
If you show up later in the week, I know Sami's going to want to RP with you at some point.
Darmok
I'll try and get on tomorrow.
Lily
i can just acenia instead :3
Rubi
"We should take all of lily's stuff back... and probably some extra stuff since we went through so much hassle
Acenia
i don't want to be second choice.
GCA
you're my first choice sister from another mister
Lily
well, it's not like you're second choice. lily wants to talk to acenia for a different reason.
GCA
"Yeah! Let's rob the robber! Karma!"
Lily
i was just thinking in terms of the fact that darmok is on far less often than you are, so it makes more sense to try and get to him first
Sami
"There's no such thing as karma."
Lily
you are always and forever dabes, don't worry
Rubi
but we do have Fate though
GCA
"You sure? I got shot after accidentally hurting Lily"
GCA
"Seems like karma to me"
Miloko
"you got s-shot c-cause you w-were w-waving a gun a-around?"
Sami
"Me and Maenam are probably the closest things to gods in this universe. And we're pretty fuckin' far from gods."
"Unless you're talking about the Horrorterrors. And if they're involved I wouldn't depend on anything resembling rules or sanity."
GCA
"I was not waving it around! I was trying to unload it! I wasn't even touching the trigger!"
Lily
"Ah Christ, horrorterrors. You know Eric prototyped one?"
Sami
"What? Who's Eric?"
Miloko
"h-horrorterrors? t-that s-sounds l-like s-something y-you'd see on a c-children's tv s-show?"
Sami
"Horrorterrors are..."
Sami sighs.
"Okay, you know how I said me and Maenam are kinda-sorta-gods?"
"Well they're like us, only from long-dead sessions. More powerful than us but after having gone through so much pain and agony and loss that you can't depend on them being sane."
GCA
"Shit"
Sami
"Yeah."
Lily
"Annnnd do they feed on fear and despair?" Lily looks hopeful.
Sami
"Not that I know of? I don't know WHAT they eat."
GCA
"Lily wrong expression"
Lily
"Dammit. I KNEW $200 was too much for that grimoire."
Miloko
"I t-think I'm g-gonna k-keep w-worshipping the t-trolltec g-gods, if you d-don't m-mind?"
Sami
"The ones I've talked to can be helpful, but never without a price. And it's always more than you're comfortable paying."
GCA
"Haha plants are a way better alternative"
Sami
"I kind of got my magic from them, and learned the hard way."
GCA
Erisio frowns and offers Sami a hug. "Sorry to hear that Sami"
Lily
"At least with Satan you have a nice concrete mythos that everyone basically agrees on."
Miloko
"err, t-trolltec h-here?"
Acenia
Acenia sits on the floor.
Lily
"Well, the Trolltec pantheon is a whole 'nother basket of eggs."
Rubi
Rubi is going around the room collecting anything of value
GCA
"Oh uh, yeah but now what guys"
GCA
"We got the sheets, but we have quests to do don't we?"
Rubi
"Lily collect your things lets continue on the shindig."
Miloko
"r-rest for a bit? it's b-been a h-hell of a day?"
Sami
"Oh, yeah, whose world is this? And have you figured out what the World Quest is?"
GCA
"Lily's"
GCA
"I have an idea"
GCA
"The puppies said that Slim makes all the puppies poor"
Sami
Puppies?
GCA
"Or no, one of the shopkeepers did"
GCA
"yeah! Puppies"
GCA
"Dogs"
GCA
"barkbeasts?"
Miloko
"you t-think t-they m-might be mad a-about it?"
Lily
"Puppypeople. They're devious bastards."
Sami
"Oh, those are your consorts?"
GCA
"But yeah, maybe the quest is stop slim from being a greedy prick?"
Sami
"Yeah, the consorts aren't all as friendly as Kate's were. Mine tried to hang me and burn me at the stake for being a Witch."
Rubi
"I say we kill him for high treason against a queen"
Lily
"Fun."
Acenia
"Witch?"
Acenia leans into the conversation.
GCA
"I think mine eat each other."
Sami
"Yeah. Oh, you weren't here when we introduced ourselves, were you? I'm Sami Heston, the Witch of Breath. And the troll girl who was here just a second ago was Maenam Niadis, Witch of Blood."
Acenia
"I'm a Witch of Void!" She wears a smile 5 miles wide.
Sami
"Wow! This team is practically a coven!"
Lily
"Oh God."
Rubi
"Got a magic girl party all up in here... sits on a table"
*she sits on a table
Miloko
"I d-don't k-know how m-magicky a m-maid is?"
Acenia
Acenia pulls the sides of her hat down and squirms and squeaks happily! "Oh wow!!! So how does everything work here? I've been using seals!"
Sami
"Nah, Maenam's the only one of us who does the Henshin Pen thingy. Doir has one too but he didn't join us."
Rubi
Henshin pen?
""
Sami
"Oh. Seals? I never tried anything like that. I do Eldritch Painting for my magic."
GCA
"Ok, I'm gonna try and look around for clues"
Acenia
"Oh! I'm not good at paints. It sounds neat! I would like to see sometime!"
Sami
"You probably will, if things get dire. I try not to overdo it though. It gets dangerous if I use up all my colors."
"I end up going grimdark and then we're all at the mercy of the Horrorterrors."
Acenia
"grimdark?"
Miloko
"g-great?"
Lily
"You...get really violent and edgy?"
Sami
"Uh....I never really got to see it from the outside."
Miloko
"m-memory l-loss is a bad s-sign?"
GCA
"Yeah, tell me about it"
Sami
"One of my teammates got hurt by me while grimdark once. But she had had her mind wiped by Jack at the time, and as near as I've been able to tell the only way to free her was to kill her and kiss her dreamself awake. So I don't know if they were doing it to be dicks or just being way too pragmatic about it."
"It's really hard to tell the difference with them."
Acenia
Acenia frowns.
Sami
"Or maybe there would've been another way to heal her, but it would've taken too long, and we had to escape the scratch or she would've been REALLY dead instead of just dream dead."
Miloko
"n-neither o-option is r-really t-that g-good?"
Sami
"Yeah. So I don't like to overdo it with my magic."
GCA
"Hey guys?"
Acenia
"Yes Eri?"
GCA
"You know, I get that we want to be friends and all, but we still don't really know what we're doing as far as the world goes"
Acenia
"Oh! Well... I was just in a big Casino down the road... where Slim was accumulating a lot of debt. I didn't really stay around though..."
Sami
Sami nods. "There seems to be a World Quest for each world that has to be completed, and then we confront the Denizen. Some of us have either had to or have chosen to fight their Denizens. Others make deals with them. That part's up to the player whose world it is I think."
Acenia
"Also did anyone notice Slim is not a puppy?"
Rubi
"Debt?" Rubi looks at her character sheet "crap."
Sami
"He's not? What did he look like?"
Lily
"Ahaha, you too?"
Acenia
"Or a dog person or anything like that..."
GCA
"Yeah he just had a mask. How lame"
Sami
"Huh. Weird."
Rubi
"I want... that mask
Acenia
"I saw the back of his head a lot... but that's not really descriptive..."
Sami
"So he's not a Consort. Could he be Lily's Denizen?"
Acenia
"What are those?"
Sami
"Or did he look like a Prospitian or a Dersite?"
Lily
"Man, I hope he's the Denizen. That'd be SO COOL."
Miloko
"e-either way, he s-seems l-like our b-best l-lead so far?"
Sami
"Although I don't know for a fact Prospitians and Dersites can't be Denizens. Mine turned out to be a river for goodness sake."
Acenia
"What do they do?"
Sami
"Denizens?"
"Do you play many video games? They're sort of like the Boss for a given world. Though you don't HAVE to fight them. Like Hephaestus--that's Kate's Denizen--was pretty cool, just let me hang out while the others came looking for me."
"They seem to be the primary figure in the World Quest for a world."
"You've got to go through them to finish a world and open the gate. Or at least we did. I think Libby said Gates being closed was unnatural and weird for our world."
Acenia
Acenia nods and pokes notes into her YLIP bracelet
and i am sleepy.
GCA
"Mmm, getting shot kinda drains your energy"
Sami
"Yeah, I'll bet!"
"I guess it must run in the family. The whole 'being the Universe's butt monkey' thing."
Rubi
Rubi does a light laugh
Lily
Lily rolls her eyes.
wait
shit
GCA
"Ooooh my god, what is it with you people and tropes"
Sami
"Doir and Null both had ongoing strings of bad luck."
"Sorry. It's Doir's influence. He talks about tropes CONSTANTLY."
Lily
Lily gives an exasperated sigh. "Roll your eyes for me, Erisio."
Sami
"You just get used to it to appease him."
GCA
"Dude! Maybe the negatives will cancel each other out and ill have good luck!"
GCA
"Do any of the old players have anything to make you luckier?"
Miloko
"he s-sounds... n-nice?"
Sami
"...or maybe you should make friends with a Light player."
"My boyfriend is an Heir of Light. But he can't exactly help from where he is."
GCA
"Oh, yeah he must be joining another team right?"
Rubi
"Whats wrong with him?"
Sami
"...uh....no, probably not."
"He's a ghost. He can't leave the ark."
Miloko
"s-spooky?"
Rubi
"Oh thats gotta suck..."
Lily
"That's rough, man."
Sami
"...yeah. He died fighting Jack."
GCA
"Oh uh, sorry for your loss"
GCA
"Man Jack is a dick"
Sami
"Yeah. Yeah he is."
Lily
"At least you can still see him," she says bitterly.
GCA
Erisio coughs and rolls his eyes for Lily
Miloko
"t-trolltec j-jesus, b-bitter m-much?"
Lily
"And talk to him. And be in the same goddamn room with him without fucking choking to death." She laughs shakily. "Y'know. Things like that."
Rubi
Rubi rubs her chin "wonder how exactly life works... Don't mind me guys im just going to mess with tiny in the other room
Sami
Sami looks ashamed.
"I'm sorry, Lily."
Lily
"Find a way to fix it, then."
Miloko
"I t-think t-that's c-called, h-having a c-crush, L-Lily?"
GCA
"No Miloko, like, choke choke"
GCA
"As in she's passed out from lack of air"
Sami
"I....don't know if I can. I..." Sami sighs. "There's stuff going on you don't know about Lily. Stuff I can't tell you for the same reason you can't tell anyone what happened."
"I'm sorry."
Rubi
Rubi goes outside on the back porch letting a big robot sit on the steps as she works on his headcase
Sami
"I don't like what Libby did to you. But I can't reverse it without doing even more harm than I've already done."
Lily
"Great. Isn't that always the fucking way." She growls. "Well, when you get back, you tell that woman that nothing's changed. Imogen is a figment of her imagination, and will never be more than that. And if she wanted to bend me to her will, she picked the worst possible way to do it."
Sami
"Yeah. I think she knows that. She said as much to me."
GCA
Erisio yawns and sort of slumps over, falling asleep on the floor
Rubi
"So this libby... is she... good or bad or is it one of those hard to describe things?"
Lily
"She's a homicidal maniac that needs to be put down," Lily says flatly, as if she were stating a fact.
Sami
"She's about as close to a horrorterror as you can be without sprouting tentacles."
Lily
"And I want to be the one to do it."
Rubi
"Wouldve preferred the tentacles..."
Lily
"Trust me. You really wouldn't."
Sami
"But I think she's trying to help us win this session....just without mercy or sympathy."
Lily
"I don't fucking CARE," she says, shaking slightly. "I will NEVER forgive her for what she did. She is going to DIE. SLOWLY and painfully, fucking PAINFULLY."
Sami
"I don't expect you to forgive her, Lily. Nor me. And I know Libby doesn't expect you to forgive her either."
Rubi
"Hey lily... wanna... booby trap her pudding?"
"Make it explode in her face?"
Sami
"But I think if you oppose her, you're going to be hurting yourself more than you hurt her. Other than emotionally maybe. And even that I'm not certain about."
Lily
"There is NOTHING she can do to me that will hurt more than what she's already done."
Rubi
"Pretty sure she couldve killed you
Miloko
"w-well, t-that's a g-good a r-reason as any to s-stay out of t-this?"
Sami
"...or let you turn into a horrorterror."
Lily
"Great. Maybe I
shiet
"Great. Maybe I'll have the power to get rid of her then."
Rubi
"...come to think of lily... why do you have horns?"
Sami
Sami looks at her shoes when Rubi asks this.
Rubi
"Ive been wondering this for awhile i noticed it but was preoccupied"
Lily
"You can thank Imogen Aggaro for these."
Rubi
"Imogen?"
Miloko
"A-Aggaro?"
Sami
"Who is Imogen anyway? You've mentioned her a few times."
Lily
"She was going to be my little sister. Balish and Libby's kid." She smiles weakly. "Then other plans were made."
Rubi
Rubi removes tiny's head and begins to mess with the inner workings
Sami
"Oh....so that's what you meant."
Rubi
".....ok....?"
Lily
"Yeah." She winces.
Rubi
"That doesnt explain the horns though. like did they just spout out?"
Lily
"Pretty much, yeah. It's kind of like teething, except it hurts like hell."
Miloko
"and t-teething d-doesn't?"
Sami
"I hope they're not going to be as big as Balish's. His horns were ridiculous."
Rubi
Rubi looks up from her work. arm covered in some grease "So... because of your younger sister... you got horns?"
Lily
"Something like that, yeah." Her sockets widen in amused realization. "Haha oh my God Merrow and Darmok are my brothers." She grins. "Oh man, Sami, you're totally my aunt! Or maybe mother-in-law? Ectobiology is weird."
Miloko
"we h-have the m-most s-screwed up f-family t-tree e-ever?"
Rubi
"least it doesnt go in circles"
Rubi slaps tiny's head back on and capchalogs him again going inside to wash up
Lily
"OK, but like, Darmok and I are brothers, and you're Darmok's mom, so that would make you my mom." She smiles softly. "Yeah. I think I'd like that."
"You can't possibly be worse than my biological mom, anyways," she says, grimacing.
Sami
"...after all I've done to you, Lily? Why would you ever want to be my daughter?"
Rubi
Rubi comes back! Fresh!Rubi she sits down next to milly
Lily
"Because I've known you my entire life, or I guess, a version of you. And I know that you're brave, and spunky, and caring, and basically a big nest mother, and kind of terrifying on the battlefield." She grins. "Oh man, in this universe, your nickname is 'The Horntaker'. You've got like this giant wall of horns you've taken from fallen enemies. It's SO BADASS."
Sami
"H....horntaker?!"
Lily
"Yeah. You're in the army! There is nothing cooler than seeing you whirling around with like 6 guns blazing at once and hitting like, every target."
Sami
"No, no....I'm an artist! I'm not a soldier!"
"But wow. The Colonel in this universe must be so proud of this version of me. He actually got the soldier he wanted me to be this time."
Lily
"Well, yeah, and there's that side of you too. You'd come over every week or so to make sure Doir hadn't fallen into a coma or something and we'd all have an honest-to-goodness dinner and I'd show you my magic stuff and we'd do rituals and experiments together and you taught me how to draw and you're basically super awesome."
Sami
Sami's blushing.
Rubi
Rubi chuckles "(wish our mother was like that before all this)"
*to milly
Lily
"And the fact that you feel so terrible about what you did says a lot about you, I think."
Miloko
"(I a-already met my mom?)"
Rubi
"(I mean the queen mother... speaking of which...) Hey Sami?"
Sami
"Yeah?"
Rubi
"Does your universe have a Beau? I haven't heard about much of your team and was just...wondering..."
Sami
"Yeah. Remember, I said she and I used to date? I mean....we kind of still do but that's not HER so much as HIM and....it's kind of a complicated story."
Rubi
"Sex change operation?"
Sami
"No..." Sami inhales.
Lily
"He's the dead ghost boyfriend, isn't he."
Sami
"...yeah."
Rubi
"...ah" Rubi kind of shuts up
Miloko
"s-sorry sis?"
Sami
"...Beau died fighting Jack. I was heartbroken. Couldn't even leave my room for months. Sobbed constantly."
Lily
"Aw jeez. That sucks."
Sami
"When I finally did, I asked Libby about Dreambubbles. She took me to the Horrorterrors, and they kind of made me an offer..."
"...long story short, they tied the dreambubble Beau was in to the ark, so Beau's ghost would be there. But..."
"...the Beau whose Ghost they found wasn't the Beau who I knew. It was a Beau from another universe, almost identical to this one, except she was a boy. And, uh....he kind of watched Jack torture me to death in it."
Lily
"Yikes. PTSD's a bitch."
Sami
"...at first I didn't want to get involved with him. I thought it was insulting to Beau's memory. And that he wasn't really MY Beau."
"But eventually we decided that our respective counterparts would want us to be together, since they couldn't be with us."
Sami smiles as she thinks about him.
Rubi
"...i...m not sure if i would consider that... beau... in a way... umm..." she ponders... "You ever thought of ripping a bit of the ark up and strap it to beau to see if it keeps the dream bubble around him?"
Sami
"No....for starters, most of the rest of the team is still on the ark, and they would probably die if we did that."
"But maybe when they get here we can give it a shot."
Rubi
"We dont have to take anything vital... it was just a thought is all
Sami
"I hate that I didn't really get much of a chance to say goodbye. We had no idea Libby was going to send us to help you guys, and we had to leave in a hurry."
"I got to say goodbye, but it was so quick. I'm going to miss him really bad while I wait for them to get here."
"But I'm sorry Lily, I'm probably rubbing salt in the wound for you again."
Rubi
"I hope to see him decently soon..."
Sami
"Yeah. I think he would like that, Rubi. I told him I would try to introduce you and Jack to him."
Lily
"...Yeah, no, it's OK. I got to..." She begins coughing profusely. "I got to say goodbye," she wheezes.
Sami
"I know he's not really the Beau who you two were made from....but he's just like her."
Rubi
"Its fine... its basically her...er him... in a way..."
Sami
"And I know he would like to meet you two. Because in his timeline, you two WERE made from him."
Rubi
"...also... talking about beau this much wanted me to give you a warning... if you see adults on this planet... avoid them for the most part"
Sami
"God. I still can't believe the me on this side named our son 'Jack.' That's just all kinds of fucked up."
Lily
"HE'S all kinds of fucked up, honestly."
Sami
Sami looks hurt. "What do you mean?"
"Was I not a good mom?"
Lily
"Well, I mean, like, he's kind of...ridiculously loyal to you? So it's kind of the opposite."
Miloko
"l-let's j-just say you can t-tell he and D-Darmok are r-related?"
Sami
"I saw how beat up Darmok was....which reminds me, I need to find this universe's Balish and give him a black eye or two."
Rubi
"What? No? Hes an awesome spy guy"
GCA
Erisio slowly returns to the land of the awake. "Huh? Whoza whatzit?"
Lily
"Like, he threatened to turn me in to the base authorities because I was using the same kind of stims we used on Balish."
"Because you were all broken up over his memory loss."
"So, y'know. fun times all 'round."
Sami
"I was broken up over it?"
Lily
"Mmm hmm. You and him had this WHOLE big history."
Sami
"Why wasn't I kicking Balish's ass for how he treats Darmok?!"
Rubi
"I don't know. but if you see him... libby wants him
Lily
"Oh hey Erisio." she sighs in relief. "Oh thank the Lord I can see again."
GCA
"Hrm"
Sami
"Oh, hey, by the way, Lily....if you need to use my eyes, you can. I owe you that much at least. Although I don't know if you really want to get inside my mind given the other things that live there."
GCA
"We should like, make something that she can use for sight"
GCA
"So that she doesn't have to depend on others"
Sami
"Yeah, you could probably alchemize something for her."
Rubi
Rubi grins "Hello"
Lily
"What, like, a seeing-eye consort or something? Ooh, or ROBO EYES."
"ROBO EYES WOULD BE SO AMAZING, LET'S DO THAT."
GCA
"Hi Rubi! Why are you saying hi?"
Sami
"How much grist do you have? I haven't really gotten any since the trip, so I'm not exactly rolling in it."
Lily
Lily wordlessly hands over her character sheet.
Sami
"Maenam might have more though, I dunno. I think Team Maso had some sort of windfall after her land."
GCA
"well half of us are in debt now"
Sami
"Oh god Lily."
Lily
"Yeah."
GCA
"Lily no stop giving people your sheet"
Rubi
"I could possiblly make some eyes for you... i need supplies though
Lily
"Psh. It's Sami. I'm not exactly worried."
Sami
"Lily....I know you trust the me on this side, but I'm....I don't know if you can afford to trust me."
"I've mentioned that I'm not the only thing living in my head, right?"
Lily
"I need to afford to trust you, Sami," she says quietly. "I need to tell myself that you didn't do it willingly. That you wouldn't do it willingly. Otherwise..." She sighs.
GCA
"Trust is good"
GCA
"yaaay"
GCA
He is obviously still half asleep
Sami
"I don't know if my will means anything anymore, Lily." Sami gives a weary laugh. "Some Breath player."
Lily
"If you didn't want to do it, then that's good enough for me."
GCA
"Hey, you're in blue witch clothes, makes you more witch of breathy than any of us"
Sami
"Yeah, but I don't think Libby wanted to do it either. What someone wants to do and what they actually do don't always sync up. Hell, Jack thought he was the HERO of this story."
Miloko
"the g-gods h-have p-plans no m-mere m-mortal can u-understand?"
Rubi
Rubi elbow nudges milly and then points to Sami "theres a god"
Lily
"The last thing I saw was her grin, Sami." Her voice quivers. "She was taking PLEASURE in it. You tell me whether or not she wanted to do it."
Miloko
"ehh, I'd c-classify her as a d-demi god , s-since t-there s-seems to s-still be a w-whole l-level a-above her?"
Sami
"You mean the Horrorterrors?"
"Yeah....I fought one who was easily twice as good at controlling Breath as I am. Of course he was a Lord, too, so that made it even worse."
Rubi
Rubi giggles " i was kidding"
Sami
"I would've died really easily if I hadn't used my magic."
"And that's twice as good at controlling Breath as I am *now.* I wasn't even close to that strong at the time."
Rubi
"Didnt have any help?"
Sami
"No....I didn't know I'd be fighting him. I was trying to be his friend."
Miloko
"t-that's... w-well I d-don't h-have a b-baseline for y-your p-power, so I d-don't k-know w-what to a-assume t-twice as p-powerful is?"
Rubi
"ooo... can you make tornadoes?"
Sami
"Yeah. It's one of my go-to ways of fighting imps."
Miloko
"it m-must be n-nice to h-have s-such a d-directly u-useful p-power set?"
Sami
"Yeah. Breath is pretty cool. But being a Witch is part of it. We're an Active class, and built around manipulation."
"What about you?"
Miloko
"M-Maid of R-Rage, k-kinda s-scares me, to be h-honest?"
Sami
"Null was a Maid. And Meouet's our Rage player."
Lily
"You should steer clear of Meouet, though. She's just as bad as Libby."
Sami
"You don't have to be scared of it though. I think Rage can be any sort of really powerful passion. Like yeah, anger and hatred, but I think it could probably also be like determination or valor, too. But I don't know for sure. Meouet's really secretive about what she does, and I didn't focus on Rage much in my studies."
"But I do know that all of the Aspects seem to cover a lot of stuff that the name doesn't obviously imply! Like Blood is more about relationships and bonds than it is about actual blood....though it's that, too."
"Maenam's scared of her powers, too."
"She's your mom, right?"
Miloko
"y-yeah?"
Sami
"Heh. it's weird. The Trolls in my session don't even really understand what parents are, I think."
"Or families in general."
"Or at least they didn't. I think our players have started to figure it out."
"Now that they actually get to know who their kids ARE. They didn't get to do that on their world I think."
Rubi
"we got a really good mingling of cultures with our societies"
Lily
"Yeah, troll relationships are weird. I still don't get how incest isn't a thing."
Miloko
"to be f-fair, I w-wasn't e-even r-raised a-among t-trolls?"
Sami
"Yeah, I still don't get troll relationships really, either. Kismesis is fuckin' baffling to me."
Lily
"Heh. Tell me about it."
Sami
"And even the Moirail thing....I think Null and I would've been moirails a long time before she disappeared if I wasn't afraid of accidentally cheating on her because I don't get moiraillegience."
"You don't know how many times I got called a 'paleslut' when we first met the trolls."
Lily
"Pffffhaha. You're just a human. As far as I can tell, it's basically just like being a super bestie that listens to the other person's problems."
"So I dunno where they got off calling you a paleslut when our society is literally based around creating bonds like that."
Rubi
Rubi adjusts her crown and relaxes a bit more against the wall.
Sami
"See, that's what I thought too, except there's apparently this whole monogamy deal and you're not supposed to even talk to your girlfriend about HER problems because that's HER moirail's job. Or something."
"Or maybe Null was just weird. I get the impression she wasn't entirely conventional in her relationships even among trolls."
Miloko
"o-only t-trolls who are r-really u-uptight are l-like t-that?"
Sami
"Heh. I wouldn't have ever thought of Null as uptight. Maybe it was just her pale quadrant she was uptight about?"
"You know she once wrote fan fiction of me and Beau?! Really DIRTY fan fiction, too!"
Lily
"HAHAHAAAAAA, OH MY GOD." She doubles over in laughter. "DO YOU HAVE COPIES. PLEASE TELL ME YOU HAVE COPIES."
Sami
"Beau caught me reading it. I almost died."
"Then Scarlet fucking sent it to everyone on her contacts list."
Lily
"Pfffft."
Miloko
"t-that s-sounds h-horrifying?"
Sami
"It was."
"On the bright side, I don't get embarrassed as easily any more. Since nothing can compare, after that."
Rubi
Rubi yawns
"I think I need some shuteye..."
Sami
"Yeah, I'll bet. You've been using your Aspect powers at a high level even though you're still really low on your Echeladder. That'll kick anyone's ass."
Lily
"Ech, I'm pretty drained too. I've been latched onto Erisio pretty much the whole day."
Rubi
"heh... if it helps out everyone i could do it all day."
Sami
"Yeah."
"Before we set out, we should probably all compare notes. Me and Maenam know a lot about the game that you guys don't, so feel free to lean on us."
"I don't know if Libby's going to send Doir when he wakes up, but if she does....um..."
She blanks for a moment.
"...well, if you can get past his silliness he actually knows things."
Lily
"If he shows up I'm gonna punch him in the face," she says, smiling fondly.
"And then maybe hug him really hard."
Sami
"Um....any particular reason?"
Rubi
"Hehe... ok then..." Rubi snaps her fingers and sets up Tiny for guard duty
Lily
"He pulled this stupid heroic sacrifice stunt." She scowls. "The fucker didn't even let me say goodbye."
Sami
"Doir? Pulled a heroic sacrifice?"
Lily
"Yeah. He knew he wasn't gonna survive the purge, so he locked me inside with his computer and went off to do who knows what." She sighs. "He's dead. Libby confirmed it."
Sami
"Oh....I'm sorry."
"He must have really cared about you, Lily. If he's anything like the Doir I know....well, getting him to care about something is no easy feat."
"So you must have been incredibly special to him."
Lily
"Yeah." She smiles. "Say what you want, he was one hell of a dad."
Sami
"I'm sure he was. And I know he's really eager to be a good dad to you and Erisio when he gets here."
"He, uh....doesn't know about the thing that happened to you."
"I'm unable to talk about it. So I couldn't tell him."
Lily
"I figured." She grimaces. "Well, it'll probably be pretty easy to figure out."
Sami
"But you know....I don't think family is about blood. If it helps."
Lily
"I know. Erisio's always gonna be my bro, no matter what. It's like now I've got a REALLY extended family, which is great, because I've always wanted siblings."
Sami
"So....if you're sure you want to think of me like a mom, even considering all that I am and the things that I've done....I guess I'm okay with that."
"Hell. I was planning to play den mother to the whole team anyway."
Lily
She grins widely. "Oh fuck yes."
Sami
"I kind of promised Beau I'd look out for you, too, Rubi. If you're okay with it."
Rubi
Rubi yawns... then capchalogs her crown "I'm plenty fine... as long as the game gets won in the end i don't mind... sorry if i get bossy beforehand though"
Lily
"Aw ye. Foster sibling fist bunp." She raises a fist.
Rubi
Rubi fist *bunps
Sami
"Okay. Well you two get some sleep then. Tomorrow Maenam and I might need a debriefing of what's happened in this session so far so we know what we have to worry about. For example, knowing about everyone's pre-entry prototypes. Especially your's, Lily"
Lily
"Red joker playing card."
Sami
"Since we're on your land."
"Joker? Hmm. That could be a problem."
Rubi
Rubi nods "no problems there. don't worry about staying up the big guys a great watchdog"
Lily
"Ahaha. You're gonna love my sprite."
Sami
"...why?"
Lily
She grins. "Let's just say he can be a real Dick."
Sami
"Great. Sounds like Beau's sprite."
Her voice is flat.
Rubi
Rubi moseys on next to milly and falls asleep beside her
"night..."
Lily
"Niiiight."
Sami
"Night guys."
Lily
"Dammit Erisio fell asleep again." She sighs, and begins groping around. "Is this a pillow. No. It is the floor."
Sami
"Here, I'll tuck you in." Sami comes over and helps Lily find her way to bed and everything.
Lily
Lily shifts around until she's in a good position, and yawns. "Christ, I'm tired." She closes her eyelids over her empty sockets, giving her the appearance of normalcy. "G'night, mom," she mumbles.
Sami
Sami blushes when Lily says this. "Good night, Lily."
Lily
wahaha. self-esteem boost achieved.
Kate

Dani
Yrah
Enzo
Enzo is there
Merrow
Merrow arrives at the appointed meeting time.
languidLachesis (GM)
Dani, you're only there because you two are the founding members of the blossoming lily club.
Fate
The what
Merrow
"Yuri" is Japanese for "lily."
I'm assuming it was a joke about the girl-on-girl action. =P
languidLachesis (GM)
Can't get one by you can i AA
Fate
OH YEA
 :D
languidLachesis (GM)
You are in Fate's room. Outside her window, you can see a desert, coplete with tumbleweed.
Merrow
Merrow checks to make sure he remembered to pack his moisturizer.
Fate
Fate comes out of the closet, dressed in a black leather jacket and tight fitting pants, complete with dark black aviators, her hair in a perfect bun.
"cmon fuckers"
Enzo
"Cacti with guitars eh?"
Fate
"yea and im straight out the gun fu fantasy flick"
"match made in hell bitches"
Fate opens the door and steps out.
languidLachesis (GM)
You step out into the hallway.
Fate
"Wait."
Fate turns the fuck around.
"god damnit"
"i bet i have to lock my door like some kinda matrix bullshit or whatever who wants to take bets"
languidLachesis (GM)
Everyone, roll notice
Fate
Rolling 4df+3
( D0 D+ D+ D0 ) +3 = 3
Merrow
Rolling 4dF
( D+ D+ D+ D0 ) = 2
Enzo
Rolling 4df+2
( D- D0 D0 D- ) +2 = 0
languidLachesis (GM)
Merrow & Fate - You both notice that Fate's bedroom window is open.
Fate
"who opened my window"
Merrow
"Did you not do it?"
languidLachesis (GM)
There are footprints leading away from the window, towards the mountains in the distance.
Enzo
Enzo lifts head from a book on Moral Desert
Fate
"who the fuck jacked my shit"
Fate investigates?
languidLachesis (GM)
sure, roll investigate
Fate
Rolling 4df+3
( D0 D0 D+ D- ) +3 = 2
languidLachesis (GM)
Nothing of yours is missing.
Dani
Rolling 4df+1 notice (omg probably six billions years late)
( D+ D- D0 D+ ) +1 = 2
Fate
"false alarm shit is thoroughly in place"
languidLachesis (GM)
Whoever these footprints belong to, they came from inside the base.
And went out
Fate
"still some ludicrous disregard for personal space"
Merrow
"Perhaps they were voyeurs?"
languidLachesis (GM)
there are no footprints leading up to the window.
Fate
"and its someone from the base so i guess we better figure it out"
Enzo
"I'm not aware of anyone who might be a thief... I rarely talk to any of you people though..."
Fate
"lets see enzo dani merrow me wheres eric
Dani
"Maybe it's our clown friend from the assembly."
Enzo
"Eric? I talked to him... a few hours ago? perhaps a day?"
Fate
"wasnt he on the team with the shakespeare bitch"
Enzo
"Who is that?"
Fate
"fuckit"
Fate climbs out the open window
"so bullshit for real"
Dani
Dani follows
languidLachesis (GM)
Fate, it's just stiflingly hot out here. Like you're in a tiny apartment with no air conditioning and like 1 fan and the windows stay closed.
Merrow
"Shakespeare bitch?"
Enzo
Enzo shrugs to Merrow
Fate
Fate climbes the fuck BACK IN
"damn this was a bad decision." Fate goes to change into something more flowy and breezy
Translucent baggy shirt with a sports bra underneath and bootyshorts. "round 2 lets do this" she climbs back out.
Merrow
Merrow would never be caught dead in anything less than the ultimate of Haute Couture, or in this case, Hot Couture, and decides to suffer for his beauty. Like always.
Fate
"princey if you start dying so help me god im gonna take your clothes off myself no homo"
Merrow
"I'll keep it in mind." His voice is dry. Impressive for a sea dweller, honestly.
Enzo
Enzo shuffles uncomfortably before taking his long coat off, showing pale and skinny arms and tattered pants. walks out into the heat.
Fate
changing rooms
Back
languidLachesis (GM)
Outside, there seems to be a dark splotch in the distance, but it's obscured by the refraction across the desert floor. The footsteps head in that direction.
Merrow
Merrow's outfit is still Dark Lord Chic as seen through the eyes of a color blind troll, but seems to have at least gone with a breathable fabric. He wears an amulet around his neck but draws no attention to it.
Fate
"cmon lets follow the idiots trail"
Dani
laptop success
Merrow
"Agreed."
languidLachesis (GM)
going to handwave the walk
Enzo
Enzo nods, leafing through a section about "Just deserts"
languidLachesis (GM)
Three hours later, Merrow has gone through most of his bottle of moisturizer.
The sun is setting behind the mountains, and the temperature is (finally) starting to drop.
Merrow
"I should have brought more moisturizer..."
Dani
"Right, and I need more eyeliner and a pedicure."
Merrow
"Oh, good, it should get comfortable soon, right?"
languidLachesis (GM)
The splotch has resolved itself into a small town, clustered around each other. You can see ambient lighting from further in the town, and here muffled voices.
Fate
"sick as tits"
Merrow
"And Malloy, I could help you pick out a suitable eyeliner if you're serious. I think something in neon yellow would work for you."
Enzo
Enzo gives a strange look to Fate "that's an expression?"
Dani
Dani squints at Merrow.
Fate
"dude of course it is name one thing that is more sick than tits"
Before he can respond: "exactly you cant"
Merrow
"Perhaps your rumble spheres should see a doctor."
Dani
"So what's the plan if we meet hostiles?"
Enzo
Enzo is indeed dumbfounded
"we let the fighters fight them?"
Fate
"ima scope em out before we get too close" She pulls out her binoculars and totes scopes that shit out with INVESTIGATE
Dani
"Let the lighters light them, got it."
Merrow
"If we do, we should gauge their strength carefully then decide whether to engage or retreat."
languidLachesis (GM)
roll investigate then.
Fate
Rolling 4df+3
( D- D- D+ D- ) +3 = 4
for future reference should I ask before rolling
or just do it like a baus
Merrow
"We do not know the capabilities of the enemies this game will throw at us, and engaging a foe we don't know the power of would be foolish."
languidLachesis (GM)
like a baus
ill tell you if i need something else
Fate
oger six bb will do in future
languidLachesis (GM)
Fate, in the center, you see Eric up on a scaffold, a noose around his neck. He seems quite nervous. Tumbleweeds fill the square, even two or three up on the scaffold with him.
Merrow
"Is that not our teammate?"
Sorry. damn.
Fate
"so yea eric is a fuckwit thats for damn sure also hes about to be executed"
Enzo
"Wait what? Where are you seeing this?"
Dani
"Fuckkin..." Dani bolts off to try to save him.
Enzo
Enzo follows after Dani
Fate
"so uh two options run the fuck over there and try to save him and probably get shot or say fuck that and go somewhere els- well i guess that's that"
Fate sticks to the rear.
Dani
betch outside of you he was the only person who really maintained contact with her.
languidLachesis (GM)
Luckily, the town is rather deserted.
Merrow
"Hmm. We owe it to our teammate to attempt to save him. But we shouldn't be reckless."
"Who is about to execute him?"
languidLachesis (GM)
You reach the back of the field of tumbleweeds just as a breeze blows through town, causing them all to rustle. One on the scaffold rolls to the side, and the floor drops out from underneath Eric.
Fate
Fate NOTICE or INVESTIGATE (they're the same) to see if anyone is HIDING OUT LIKE AMBUSHERS
Rolling 4df+3
( D+ D+ D+ D0 ) +3 = 5
languidLachesis (GM)
Nope.
Nothing here but these tumbleweeds.
Fate
Sweet
Enzo
"No Please Wait!" (Envoke For the Sake of Argument?)
languidLachesis (GM)
Eric begins to struggle against the noose, his face turning purple. who specifically are you arguing with?
Fate
no one triggered the scaffold
Dani
"Ffffff" Dani zooms to the platform and tries to find a way to get him down.
Merrow
"Fate, you are a sharpshooter, are you not?"
"Can you shoot the rope out without hitting him?"
languidLachesis (GM)
Dani, it will take an athletics. The tumbleweeds are thick.
Dani
aight
Fate
"If you give me five minutes to set up, I am, I can't do much from here right now"
Dani
Rolling 4df+3
( D0 D- D0 D0 ) +3 = 0
Merrow
"Five minutes? Uh....I don't know. I can try."
Fate
whoa suddenly im using punctuation
Dani
Rolling 4df+3
( D+ D0 D0 D- ) +3 = 2
okay its not updating?
Merrow
Can Merrow try to slow down time for the area where the execution is taking place?
Slash speed it up for Fate?
languidLachesis (GM)
You can try. Roll time
Dani
THERE THEY WENT
Fate
Fate pulls out the Longshot and tries to rapidly aim at the swinging rope.
Dani
jesus my connection blinked
sorry
languidLachesis (GM)
Dani you can get halfway across the square this round. You'll need to try again next round
Merrow
Okay, first I would like to invoke Noblesse Oblige, as Merrow is doing this for the sake of his teammates.
Rolling 4dF+3
( D- D+ D0 D- ) +3 = 3
Dani
kay
languidLachesis (GM)
Merrow, you buy Fate a round.
