Topic: The Trilogy War
Subject: Morbuzakh?

"Well, so much for that." Haila mutters disdainfully.

She glances back and forth; this was not good, but at the same time, she couldn't afford to get the trajectory wrong and end up hitting either one of the party or nothing. Seeing where everyone is, she notes it'd be best to clear a section for everyone somewhere by the middle where they can all get to. Deciding on the spot, it was only a matter to clearcut the plants there. The only problem was the room was too bloody small!

"Get over here to the corner!" Haila yells as she moves to the corner (upper left on the map).

(If everyone gets out of the way, will be delaying until it happens, if it happens)

Moving quickly, Haila weaves her hands about an invisible pattern wrought from memory, with the individual lines jagged and yet also flowing, all the while murmuring carefully and intoning the words to draw out the arcane power. With that done, the spot decided upon, and the spell cast, Haila could only hope these plants weren't fire-resistant.

((Casting Fireball and trying to get as many of the plants as possible without hitting anyone of the party))

Topic: You Filthy Little Thief!!!
Subject: Getting sleeeepy...

As everyone makes their way back to the table, Ocyari stifles a yawn. Ugh, she was too used to her stupid curfew! She shakes her head, trying to clear it of that misty, thick fog that is sleepiness. She absently bumps into Miran once on the way back to the table, but is fine other than that.

Seeing how it seems people are moving on rather than staying here (which Ocyari couldn't blame them for, with how boring it is here), Ocyari quickly follows.

"Don't forget me!" She says as she follows the other, seemingly hasty, members of the group.

Topic: Forgotten Realms: The Unsung Heroes
Subject: Fading into Darkness

Riding through enemy territory, apprehension grabs Linnix about the shoulders, its cold claws sinking into her skin. She had to be wary; she had to be able to tell where the enemy was. However, as the ride went on, Linnix could only look on in dismay.

Shapes in the distance, previously a bland grey to her eyes, began to be shrouded in a mist, obscuring their forms. The mist grows thicker and darker, like a blanket of fog that removes all sight. Except it isn't fog; it's darkness.

As the last traces of her vision disappear, Linnix sighs. Once, she used to be afraid of the dark, when she was very little. Over time she had adapted to it as she grew, before being forced to with her chosen 'occupation'. Still, when she was able to see through it, perhaps that gave her a different view of darkness. Sometimes it is something through which things hide, but if one can see through it, everything looks a lot more similar. Perhaps it's the shades of grey that everything appears as, but Caera's words rung with a hint of truth.

In the rays of the moon, uncoloured by the sun, everyone is equal, if not the same.

* * *

The torches along the side snap Linnix out of her reminisce, and while she glares at them as though she could once again see through the darkness, they go out. The implication is immediately realized by Linnix, and she pulls out her bow after bringing Tock to a stop.

When Aelistae's lights provide luminescence to the immediate area, Linnix raises her bow.

Perhaps we are the same, but I cannot let you hurt my friends. Linnix resolves, your aggression will be returned swiftly.

She fires at the closest gob/gnoll to her.

Topic: Auguries of Destruction: The Linsemptus - Q/A
Subject: Regarding the items from the armoury

If you'd like to have the technical term, you are effectively requisitioning the equipment from the Council, which means that you pay nothing for them, and are effectively borrowing them.

There would not be a magical staff in the armoury, as that is a far more potent item that would have to be asked for directly. (with only a something-percent chance of one actually being available)

Ammunition of course is quite available, so feel free to choose bolts for yourself. (with a maximum of 30 units of ammunition for each player)

And I wouldn't worry about your squad Sib; Dev might make comic relief now and then with things he'll do, but when things get serious, he'll be a fairly strong ally. Likewise with the rest of the group (with the exception of Mist, who's always serious).

Topic: Auguries of Destruction - The Linsemptus
Subject: And here be the others

"Hey! Why don't they have any Holy Katars?!" Dev shouts in frustration, which is the only thing heard before a massive clang of multiple pieces of weaponry and armour hitting the floor rings throughout the citadel.

"Whoops, my bad." Dev's voice can be heard as a slight cloud of dust is blown out of the armoury by the commotion.

"Ugh, when will you ever take care and take things seriously?" Mist's voice is heard in exasperation.

"Maybe when you stop being such a stick-in-the-mud, Mist, or maybe when I'm not bored." Dev's voice can be heard responding.

Yin rolls his eyes, a motion easily spotted by Willow, Armand and Denuan.

"I'd better check on them." Yin mutters aloud before wandering over to the armoury himself.

Sora and Farah can both be seen glancing into the armoury, although definitely looking as though they don't want to get involved.

"Well, that was mildly interesting." Sora says aloud.

"I hope it doesn't take too long to clean up." Farah murmurs.

"They do have magic at their disposal riiight?" Sora replies, "So it should be easy."

"Sora, Farah!" Yin calls from right behind them.

"Hey! Don't sneak up on me like that!" Sora says, jumping in spite of himself, swiftly turning around, and knocking Farah into the armoury as a result.

"Whoa!" She calls, and there is another cacophonous array of more metallic noise.

"Is that a Holy Katar?" Dev's voice can be heard after the commotion.

Giving a loud sigh, Yin calls into the armoury, "Alright, I want you four to make this room as tidy as it was before any of you went in. Yes, that includes all of you, Mist, Dev, Farah and Sora."

After a bit of groaning, the sounds of racks being lifted back into place and weapons and armour being placed back echo out into the citadel. Previously unnoticed, there is the sound of a door to the right closing as a couple pairs of footsteps echo in the hall.

"Is this it?" A slightly gruff voice is heard.

"You've forgotten already, Akihiko?" Snaps the voice of an influential-sounding woman.

"Sheesh, you're not in a good mood today, Mitsuru." The first voice responds.

Quickly reaching the others already there, and standing in approximately the same spot as the centre two members of the Council were, the woman, evidently named Mitsuru, immediately introduces the two of them. She has long, dark red hair which falls over one eye, leaving the other, her left, in view. She is dressed almost as though she is at the same level of influence as the Council, with well fashioned yet functional and practical clothing and at her side is an elegant rapier. Beside her stands a man who is dressed casually, compared to Mitsuru; he wears a simple garment of one who is used to travel, and carries his jacket held over his shoulder by his right hand. He has short, grey hair and what seems to be a bandage above his right eye. In his left hand he carried a pair of spiked gauntlets, and is apparently a close-combat person.

"I am Mitsuru Kirijo, and this is Akihiko Senada. As you likely guessed, we are here to aid in this quest." Mitsuru says formally.

"Hey." Akihiko says casually in greeting.

"My actual purpose here will be partly to oversee this operation." Mitsuru continues, "Not as a commander of course, however, I will suggest you heed my advice; I am skilled at providing tactical information, and is thus why I was commissioned by the Council."

"If you're wondering why I'm here, I'm here because it seems like good training." Akihiko says, shrugging.

Mitsuru rolls her eyes, "As I have told you before Akihiko, this isn't a game."

"Yeah, I know." Akihiko replies, "You don't need to remind me."

There is a loud clang as the front gate opens briefly, and turning, everyone sees a person dressed in black, with a black hood obscuring their face, step into the hall. In their right hand is held a beautiful yet apparently dangerous scythe which seems to have a dull blue sheen to its metallic appearance. They step carefully, yet the noise of their footsteps radiates coldly in the hall. They are unhesitant as they approach the group, each step taken with care, yet each step deliberate.

Topic: Poetry of Reralae
Subject: Balance

Two sides as one, swaying back and forth,
And add another two to make it south to north.
It will sway from one side to the next,
It does not favour one, even if it is hexed.

A pendulum of feeling, devoid of time and space,
It weighs and measures, at no known pace.
The measurement of change that makes life chime,
As the plight goes on heedless of time.

If one side ends, so to do the rest,
It isn't so simple that one side is the best.
Favoured or not, the balance will always sway,
And is how it's supposed to be, even beyond today.

I'm at a loss of what to make of it really, so I can't say anything until it's clarified...

Hmm, well, from what I decipher from it, I'd have to disagree.

If you mean 'fortify the bridge' to be either make it uncrossable or maybe destroy it, well... we don't have much at our disposal to do either, so I'm going to say to just stick with the plan that was kind of thought about, and slowly working our way around

Topic: Star Wars: The Outer Rim
Subject: Time for a replacement

Finding an unoccupied room in the vessel, Kate decides now is as good a time as ever to replace the spent medical arm. She quickly runs the replacement program, bringing out a second arm from an internal storage compartment and attaching it to the port where the first one was (the first is detached in the process, of course).

((Replace part repair check DC 15 taking 10 => automatic success))

Kate places the old, spent arm into the now vacant compartment, seeing as how the only thing it needs to be able to be reused is replacement medicine, which is easier to do than to make a completely new arm.

Topic: Welcome or Not!
Subject: Fake?

"Fake?" Sen repeats, feeling a bit relieved, "Well, that's good to hear; I was getting worried that I'd have to get involved with that, which would further pinpoint my location."

"I'm not sure what they'd do exactly." Sen continues, "And yes, you've guessed correctly; they're just after Sylphs in general. I just happen to be one that's managed to evade them so far. You're going to have to give me a bit more detail however with how exactly you're faking the presence of another sylph. While Darkside might go out of his way to pursue a rumour, especially if he can cause much destruction, Shadow and the Collector are far more subtle, and won't easily pursue vague leads. If I had to guess with what I currently know, they'd likely split up, with Shadow and the Collector continuing their pursuit of me, while Darkside gets involved with that possible war to serve as a very large distraction at the very least, if not get to the possible second sylph as well. He won't pick sides in that war; he'll annihilate whichever is in his way first, or both if he's in the mood for it."

Topic: Welcome or Not!
Subject: Whew

Sen breathes deeply, evidently a sigh of relief, "That's good. I was getting worried that I might not be able to hide, not if I can't use this form or can't use invisibility."

"Well, it's best if we get moving; Shadow will likely come here to investigate." Sen says, standing up and motioning for Arturo to lead the way.

It felt a bit awkward, with her walking rather than flying. It wasn't to say she hasn't before, but it was just a transition that takes a bit of time for one to get used to. Thankfully, along the journey, she only really stumbled a few times, and so the transition was faster than if she had kept stumbling.

Topic: Auguries of Destruction: The Linsemptus - Q/A
Subject: List of NPC's

Alright, this is going to be my tentative list of the NPC's that are there; after I have finalized this list, I will make an update regarding them.

-The NPC soldiers of Willow's group: Dev, Mist, Sora, and Farah
-A priestess wearing a dark hood with a scythe slung over her back
-Yin Chang
-Akihiko Sanada
-Mitsuru Kirijo

I think that should be enough... and I realize that only Mist, Xira, and Yin Chang are 'original', but these are minor characters, so I don't want to spend too much effort on them, especially if they die ^_^

"You hear something?" Linnix asks, before trying to hear herself, "I can't seem to make it out."

"Well, I don't think it'd do much good to rush in blindly; perhaps Xaris and I ought to scout ahead, where you think the sound came from, and if they need immediate assistance, one of us can help right away while the other returns here to gather the rest of the group. Does that sound alright?" Linnix suggests.

Subject: Step 2...

Iskanna sighs, she really wasn't meant for this sort of thing... too bad when one studies both the Arcane and the Divine their resources become taxed, and she was physically frail to begin with. Oh well, this isn't the time to think about could-have-beens, and in any case, she liked reading the books.

Focus! Where's the enemy?

Iskanna bites her lip. Alright, time to reveal the crossbow person. She holds out her left hand in front of her, directed toward the spot where Toby had said previously the other was sleeping, before weaving it in the air in a flowing, wavelike pattern which is then spun into a circle.

"Aao vijgn yhou ghv goh!" She proclaims, and upon the pronunciation, four orbs of light appear there, where the sentry ought to be, spread out to cover as much area as possible, before moving slowly to search for the enemy.

Topic: You Filthy Little Thief!!!
Subject: Oooh! Tension!

Ocyari looks back and forth between Paomallen. There was an air of tension between them, no doubt about it, but hopefully it would subside soon; if things came to fighting, it was very unclear how that would work, given the circumstances.

Well, it's not like they'd listen to her anyway, so Ocyari just keeps her mouth closed, considering how to prepare for what might happen. She can feel the anticipation and tension within her as well, as her body tenses, ready to dodge or defend herself as needed.

Topic: The Inconceivable Crusaders
Subject: Do what you will

It was vaguely amusing, how by her word one of her companions thought she was forbidding them from continuing. Apparently they hadn't completely gotten used to her way of speech or how she thought.

"Do what you will; I've said my thoughts." Jevaf says with only trace emotion in her voice, as she heads back toward the cave entrance.

This was surely among the more foolish missions that she had ever bothered herself with attempting; even if they had entered the cave and caught the two trading parties, they still held a key advantage that would've made most people back down. Even though they were still at a disadvantage with the mistake of the thief thinking they were the 'buyers', he had now gained a second key advantage, and that was something Jevaf was not going to bother taking risks with. True, there might have been something called 'pride' that made it vaguely feel sour, but why should she care? A small smile tugs at the ends of Jevaf's lips; she didn't, for it was only one mission among many that have been done, and are yet to be done.

"The hands of time cannot be turned back." Jevaf murmurs, setting it all aside in her mind.

To her, this mission was already over. Uncompleted, true, however, given the circumstances, aborting it was only logical.

"That certainly seems to be our only true option." Linnix says, "Otherwise they'll have merged into a single strong force. Think of it like a wave; if you can't break it before it forms, you can't do much to oppose it when it is whole."

Taking a look back at the bridge they had just crossed, Linnix winces, "And y'know... that bridge looks pretty sturdy to me. It did take a strong magical blast to destroy the other one after all, and I don't think we have that sort of capability among any of us, at least not now."

"So then, the question is, which one of the camps do we want to try to attack?" Linnix asks, thinking aloud.

"Is this guise really that see-through? Perhaps I should've just abandoned it years ago." Sen murmurs contemplatively.

Sen sighs, sitting cross-legged, "So, before we go, tell me... how exactly you saw through this appearance."

Do I even have any means to hide now? Sen wonders, the anxiety beginning to gnaw at the back of her mind. If he can see through this, can They?

Subject: Keep a hold on your emotions

((You might want to rethink how you're going to do exp about this, Sibelius; now there is no available healing to the group, so further encounters will be substantially more difficult than they were the first time around))

Galen's eyes, previously clouded over before, quickly glance over to assess the situation.

"Don't panic." Galen says simply, as he sets down his little load of rusted weapons and withdraws the vial of potion from his pant pocket, "Panicking is among the worst things to do in any situation; it consumes time, mental effort, and typically fails to do anything beneficial."

Passing the potion to Jeremy, Galen falls silent, as he considers the group's situation.

"We had best avoid further encounters if at all possible." Galen finally murmurs.

Thought so. It was too convenient that it was a dead end. Jevaf thinks, before retrieving and sheathing her daggers and rapier.

"Pursuit at this point would be too reckless on our part." Jevaf says aloud, "We've done all we can here."

Topic: .Hack//LIFE
Subject: Kiku

"Hey," he said simply, "why do you look so somber? You look out of place in a game like this."

Looking up, a little bit startled, Twin Lightning (the sister) replies, "Oh! You're here. Sorry, I have a game of go going with my brother on a window overlaying this one, so didn't quite notice. I have no idea which one of us is winning at this point, although I suspect he is, since he is much better at go than I am."

Getting up, Twin Lightning stretches, "Well, I suppose it'd be better to head to the @home. Come on, I'll show you where it is."

Walking down the path from the Chaos Gate, Twin Lightning takes Kimono and Kusardo along somewhat of a back-alley among the houses, before stopping at the back of one which seems identical to the others.

"I prefer to use the back door myself, because I kind of consider it my own house and people won't really see us either this way." Rei says in explanation, before opening a rice-paper door and inviting Kimono and Kusardo inside.

The inside of the house is like that of the exterior in design, seemingly made as a traditional Asian home. Sitting on one of the rice mats in what could be the living room is Kiku. She appears the same as she did before, however, as she waves to Kimono and Kusardo, you can't help but notice that the motion seems slightly unusual. It isn't the same as the computer generated wave that characters usually have, for it is imperfect, and tentative in a way with the speed of her hand.

"There you are!" Kiku says, "I'm glad you two are OK; I really had no way of knowing, unless I saw you."

"I did tell you they were fine." Twin Lightning says.

"I know, but still, being told isn't enough; you still have to see, right?" Kiku asks, giving a small, sly smile.

He believes it. Linnix thinks sadly, as the young boy displays his confidence in the clan he grew up with, And if one believes something, with all of their heart, they won't change easily, but they can still change.

Seeing the group as falling in with the enemy, whatever that may be to him, the boy begins to flee, and Linnix hears the footsteps as though she were miles away.

No... no choice.

"I'm sorry." Linnix says softly as she draws back her bow, and lets the arrow fly.

Yet, even as the boy falls to the ground, a tear likewise falls from Linnix's eye. All she could hope was that the arrow was true, and death came swiftly.

“You…did the right thing,” the drow woman managed to say at last to Linnix.. “Dylan is right we should go. There is nothing more we can learn here, and nothing more we can do.”

"Yes..." Linnix murmurs, agreeing, although she looks a bit blankly toward the fallen boy.

It almost felt as though it was her own heart she just shot.

Topic: The Trilogy War
Subject: One for me please!

((Sorry, I meant to do this earlier, but I had to check first about Niamedris' hp and such, so this is partially a back-post))

Haila's body quivers with the effort of coughing, to remove any remaining noxious gas within her lungs. Niamedris, however, merely looked up at her with questioning eyes.

"Don't you dare drop me." Niamedris thought to Haila warningly.

"Whatever that was... that was not nice." Haila murmurs, her body feeling slightly unsteady with the damage it had sustained.

"Now, is there anyone else who knows they need some healing before we continue on , it would do us no good if one of you dropped because you could not withstand further injuries when I have healing to give.."

"Yes, please." Haila says, "That would be wonderful."

"What's all the ruckus about? Are you all allergic to greenish air?" Niamedris wonders vaguely.

Haila raises an eyebrow, "You weren't affected?"

"Well, it was harder to see if that's what you mean." Niamedris replies, yawning, "So, when do I get to catnap? Or eat?"

Haila rolls her eyes yet again. "Cats..." She murmurs in exasperation.

Putting that aside, although now she was beginning to wonder if it would be worth being able to polymorph into a cat... no, put that aside! It's one thing to assume a shape, but after a while the shape assumed begins to alter one's thinking, and she did not want to end up thinking like Niamedris.

"Why not? It IS very relaxing isn't it?" Niamedris interjects.

Ignoring him, Haila finally thinks about what she is supposed to be thinking of: a possible order for everyone to move through the corridor... except that was already taken care of while she was side tracked.

Oh well, nothing to do but move forward...

In the second room, Haila pauses, contemplating, "An azure and red heart?"

"I presume it'll do something as soon as we go to open the next door, so we have a bit of time to prepare." She thinks aloud, "But if that's a heart, what is it the heart to? Unless..."

"Perhaps we're just supposed to leave it alone?" Haila suggests, "It's a bit eerie, but it hasn't done anything yet, and for all we know, it could be designed specifically to only retaliate when provoked. So long as we don't provoke it, perhaps we'll be fine."
