Shining Force RPG session 10
===== SESSION START =====
The Shining Force has acquired a ship from Pangoat... They have
been going down river for 2 days now, not encountering the monster yet...
* Vankarin yawns and puts a whetstone to his sword...
* Darton is getting mad... he joined up with these losers mostly cause he
could fight stuff... and now there's nothing to fight...
* Baine stares into the water, leaning on the railing of the boat.
* Chamolo twiddles a piece of grass around in his hands.
* Indigo is reading a book and singing a song.
* Baine is deep in thought..
* FlameStrike appears nervous
* Yogurt fumbles through his pouch, looking for an entertaining ring... :P
* Kodah sits quietly, not soing a lot
Hey, I think I can move the water.
* FlameStrike looks at Indigo and says calmly "NO!"
You can't, Indigo. It's impossible to walk on water.
* Lara is at the wheel, guiding the ship down the river...
So please don't try...
I don't remember all of the uses of my powers, but since I can summon
the spirit of the water....
* Indigo turns to Chamolo.
* Darton sits at the prow of the ship staring out at the river, wishing that
monster thing would show up
* Chamolo blinks and adjusts his glasses.
* Baine quietly reaches into her belt and draws the dagger she used to kill
Oh no it's not. I think. If you can call upon the power of water, you
should be able to walk on water.
That's not so true...
Besides, I was talking about making the water rush us along. ^_^
For example, I have healing spells, but I cannot revive the dead....
Indigo, i said NO
The waters are quite calm and the wind is low, thus making the
sailing quite slow...
* Baine turns and looks at the group, flpping the dagger in her hand
Although I suppose my father could...hmm...damn.
This is boring.
I second that notion, furry.
The pace of the ship's movement is so slow it seems like the ship
is going backwards
* Indigo turns to FS.
Who are you?
I just lost that aruguement...and besides....he...can't do that sort
of thing anymore..
* Indigo blinks.
* Chamolo sighs and looks into the water.
I am FlameStrike, the Big Red Dragon, whose wing you broke 2
* Baine sheathes the dagger and saunters over by Chamolo, tapping him lightly
on the head.
* Indigo shrugs. "Never heard of you."
Want to talk about it?
Anyways, you should lie down, and let me try my best, Mr. Lizardman.
Then you must have amnesia. You swore that you would serve me
until the dead
About my father? What about him?
* Darton considers swimming
About how you're feeling aobut him..
* Erin remains quiet... *
* Chamolo shakes his head. "What is there to feel? I lost my father."
* Baine looks a little concerned.. :P
Yes...sadness, anger...and I guess guilt.
Lots of guilt...
When I lost my parents... that hollowness was with me for a long
* Darton gets up and paces the length of the ship back and forth
It's my fault this happened to him.
Your fault? How so..?
* Indigo shakes her head.
I should have given myself up in Yeel. If I did...
I don't have parents.....that I remember.
I know, Erin
... If you did, you would have BOTH been converted into demons.
What do you think of that, Chamcham?
* Chamolo eyes almost look a little watery.
...huh? What are you guys talking about?
No!! Don't say that, Chamolo. Okay?. You did the right thing in
No, Cham... despite your loss now, you'll learn that there are other
reasons to go on, even if you don't know them yet...
I don't know. I'm not postive when he was converted...but...I
abandoned him when he needed me.
* Indigo sits down, thinking, then summons the elemental of water to move the
river along faster and carry them to their destination.
* Darton stops near Erin, Baine and Cham, mildly interested
* Indigo turns.
* Kodah looks at Chamolo glumly, then looks back at the floor
Well, you're a nice person Mr. Chamolo. Everything will work out. It
* Indigo smiles happily.
Don't think you're the only one... My friends, my BROTHERS were
turned into Darksol's minions... And for THAT Darksol will pay.
If there was some way they'd return him to normal, for me, I'd do
it. That's my devotion to him.
* Baine stays quiet...
* Chamolo looks at FlameStrike, and then the others. "Yes...we all lost a lot,
Yes, we did
But we must go on with our life!
There are always things beyond our control, Cham... You're certainly
not responsible for what happened to your father...
* Baine looks at FlameStrike and shakes her head..
I could do nothing when I was a little girl and my parents were
* Chamolo looks at Erin.
* Baine stares at Erin, wide eyed
Y-y...your parents were slaughtered...also..?
I heard that your parents died, but I had no idea they were
I'm sorry, Erin...
Dead... because of who my father was...
* Indigo turns to Erin.
Even though he had long given up that pursuit...
Neither could i when i was a hatchling, and my little brothers
and my parents were taken away by Darksol to serve as Death Dragons
Don't be sad, cute horsey.
How did you escape, FlameStrike?
* Indigo walks up and pets Erin.
* Darton is silent, leaning against the rail of the ship
It will be all right.
* Kodah wanders away from the others, towards the other end of the boat
* Erin moves away from the depraved girl.. *
* Baine gets a pale look and stands, heading to the railing...
The river seems to be getting rougher... And the wind picks up
You're not sick, are you Baine?
* Indigo turns.
I did it! I made the waters move! ^_^
I bit one of the minions on his foot, and he kicked me... I
passed out, and he must have considered me dead, for i am here now...
* Darton moves a bit away from Baine
* Baine glares icily at Darton..
* Indigo turns to Erin.
* Baine sits on the railing, legs dangling over the side of the boat
* Kodah leans on the raling and watches the water move slowly by
* FlameStrike goes near Erin
Anyways, these bad people are gone now, so don't worry. I'll give you
a sugarcube if you cheer up. ^_^
If you wanna talk, i'm here...
* Chamolo can't help but chuckle.
Indigo, she isn't a stupid horse alright?
No. I'm fine 'Strike.
Or a saltlick?
* Indigo turns to Baine.
* Baine is still on the railing, looking at the water with her back to the
But, she *looks* like a horsey. I wonder if she can be ridden......
* Chamolo twiddles the grass in his hand.
Don't. Even. Think. About. It.
* Baine's words drip with acid..
If you try and climb on my back, I'll put an arrow through your head.
* FlameStrike turns to Indigo
* Indigo shrugs and turns back to the water.
* Darton yawns
TRY to ride her, and you will take an unexpected bath in the
* Chamolo falls asleep.
* Baine stands on the railing, balancing.
I'm still bored...
So...where are we going again?
* Chamolo snores lightly ^_^
Well, I'll aks Neptune to make the water move faster then!
* FlameStrike takes a rope and ties Indigo
Neptune, will you make the water go faster?
Nah... this thing'll fall apart if you do that
* FlameStrike gags Indigo
* Indigo makes muffled sounds of protests.
* Baine walks the length of the railing, juggling AmeShi from hand to hand :P
the waves of the river are getting abnormally large...
* Darton considers playing a cruel joke
* Indigo looks happy.
Uhmmmm... either is that looney's spell, or it's the monster.
Its probably the monster.
* Darton looks at Baine thoughtfully for a moment and decides against it
* Erin spreads her wings and flies... not liking the feel of the ship
* Baine glares once more at Darton
Away from the railing, Baine!
* FlameStrike joins Erin in the blue blue sky
* Kodah looks over the railing into the water
* Indigo takes the time to get free of the ropes and gags.
* Baine is able to keep her balance still..
* Darton looks around, eager to kill things
*mumble* Now, to make a REALLY big wave, and get there! ^_^
Neptune, please make the biggest wave possible!
* Chamolo mumbles, still asleep
* Darton sighs
There goes the ship with a bigger wave than these...
Stupid girl! Why can't you leave nature well enough alone... damned
* FlameStrike sweeps down on the ship, and takes the others with him in the
Elemental of the water, makes this......flood stage, or better, a
* Indigo looks cheerful.
I'm gonna kill her...
* FlameStrike intentionally leaves Indigo on the ship
Kid... you're gonna destroy the ship
* Baine throws a sock at Chamolo.
* Chamolo wakes up...and then looks down....
O_O What is going on?!
* Indigo rocks along cheerfully, singing a happy song.
The waves splash over the railing, rocking the ship wildly
DON't make a move
Indigo is being stupid again, Cham.
* Chamolo grumbles.
* Baine blinks and falls over onto the deck
Yeah, that answers it all, doesn't it. :P
So i had to take you up here
* Erin picks up Baine. *
Well, bring me down! She might be hurt!
...oh, Thanks Erin.
* Indigo surprisingly keeps her balance, reading a book calmly.
* Baine mutters curses..
* FlameStrike takes up from the ship EVERYONE excluding Indigo
* Darton glares at FlameStrike
* Indigo doesn't notice, just reading calmly.
The ship almost capsizes, but stabilizes, and the waves subside...
We didn't move, did we...?
* Erin works harder at staying aloft with extra weight... * I must say... I'm
not used to.. carrying people. :P
Excuse me. I enjoy the sensation of solid matter under my feet...
and I can swim anyway.
* Chamolo sighs. "Well, that was pointless..."
* Indigo looks at the waves.
In plainer words, put me down.
Need help, dearest?
Why did you stop Neptune? We need to get wherever we're going in a
* Baine pukes. "Dearest. Guh."
Agh... again with this dearest crap...
The river returns to its peaceful self...
* Kodah hauls himself back up to the railing, looking slightly ill
* Erin drops back to the ship. *
* FlameStrike puts everyone down
* Indigo stomps her foot.
* Chamolo smiles as solid wood now is below his feet.
Next time ask first, FlameStrike.
Or I'll try to cut your tongue from your mouth.
Next time drown, people...
Give me one reason why I shouldn't plug you in the head, Indigo.
*mutter* Why isn't she paying attention?
Sheesh... you HELP them, and see what are the results...
* Indigo looks at Erin.
* Baine goes back to standing on the railing...
Because no matter how annoying she is, Erin, you shouldn't take a
But....I thought horses were trained not to attack people......
* Indigo looks very confused.
You're sure Cham?
Horses don't talk kid...
It's pretty hard to swim in waters like those we just had,
thanks to this (bops Indigo on the head) idiot...
* Baine closes her eyes and sings while walking the length of the railing. o/~
I've got a lovely buncha coconuts... o/~
I manage, thank you much...
* Indigo looks puzzled?
Suddenly, the stern is pulled down by an unknown force, making the
bow go at a 45 degree angle!
I thought this was a special, talking horsey, but the only difference
was that she could talk, other than that, isn't she a normal horsey?
* Kodah flops over and rolls back towards the rest of the group
* Erin is in the air in a flash! * What the?!
* Darton digs his claws into the deck and is unmoved
* Chamolo yells as he begins to slip to the end of the boat!
* Indigo slides to the side, hitting the railing.
* FlameStrike is caught off-guard and slams HARD onto the railing
* Darton growls
Giant tentacles are clamped on the railing, pulling the ship into
* Baine gahs and falls over the railing, grabbing it with her hand.
* Chamolo grabs onto a rope. "Here's our monster!"
What is THAT?!
* Kodah scrambles away from a tentacle
* Darton drops to all fours, growling ferally
* Chamolo looks worried.. "Those tenticles are too close! I can't get up!"
* Indigo goes over and pokes a tentacle with her staff.
* Baine grunts and attempts to haul herself up..
Yum! Squid dinner!
The tentacle lets go of the side of the ship and grabs Indigo!
* Erin flies over to Cham, and tries to haul him up. * Where ya wanna be? I'm
not good at carrying people...
* Indigo blinks.
Doesn't matter, as long as I'm away from those things!
Thanks in advance, Erin!
* Darton leaps at the closest tentacle, ripping, tearing, and biting like a
madman... err wolf...
* FlameStrike uses the railing to power a jump and attacks the tentacle that's
* Baine mutters, slumping on the side of the ship.. :P "I'm getting too old.."
The tentacle smacks Darton away, unnafected.
Oh, funny octopus. Now you put me down, and I'll put you in butter!
* Kodah tries to grab Indigo
* Erin gives Cham a short airlift to the stern of the vessel. *
Thanks...but those tenticles are coming closer anyway!
* Darton yelps in pain and thuds on the deck, sliding towards the stern for a
moment before he catches himself
*mutter* I think I'll just stay here. Its probably much safer.
The tentacle squeezes Indigo, slowly crushing her... :P
Best I could do on short notice...
* Darton snarls
* Kodah starts hacking away at the tentacle
You stop that at once, I COMMAND it!
Aw hell... I know I'm gonna regret this...
Then again...Indigo needs help..so... ^_^;
Yeah, we have to help her...
* Chamolo pulls out his staff.
* Erin knocks an arrow, and fires at the tenticle! *
* Indigo digs the sharp end of her staff into the tentacle.
* Baine hauls herself up over the railing and draws AmeShi.
* Lara places her left hand to the inside of her right fist. "Sword of my
soul,"she exclaims,"APPEAR!" Lara then pulls her hand from her fist as the
mystic blade appears in her right hand.
* Kodah gasps as Erin's arrow grazes him
Sorry, Kodah! O_O
* Darton holds out a paw and tries blasting the uncooperative tentacle with
* Chamolo prepares a healing spell for Kodah.
* Baine draws the dagger that she used to kill Jeyer with..
The tentacle holding Indigo throws her HARD on the deck.
* Kodah keeps hacking at the tentacle holding Indigo, as if it helped :P
* Indigo blinks dazedly.
* Chamolo heals Kodah grazed arm!
I.....wonder if octopi can survive on land....
All the tentacles pull down to the water, letting the ship go back
to its original position...
* Baine blinks at the sudden change of balance and falls over....again..
* Chamolo blinks. "Is it gone?"
* Darton snarls in frustration
That was odd.
Someone doesn't like me...I swear...
* Erin stays in the air... * Wary of the water below...
* Baine mutters..
Maybe I can have Neptune throw the octopus onto land!
* Chamolo risks it and takes some steps closer to the railing.
I don't see anything so far...
Then we can eat a big squid dinner! ^_^
* Baine rubs her head and stands slowly..
Where is it?
* FlameStrike slams AGAIN against the railing
Careful, Chamolo...don't wind up fish food..
* Darton releases his claws from the deck
I am....don't worry.
That was really annoying...
But I got to take a risk and look...Flamestrike is sort of spazzing
Flamestrike always spazzes out. :P
What's wrong Mr. Lizardman?
As does Indigo.
* Indigo looks concerned for FS.
* Baine noddles
And I do sometimes. ^_-
I can have a look see if you'd like, Cham... I'm not too shaken up...
No, I got it.
Ouchouchouch.... Hey, wait... HOW DID YOU CALL ME?
* Indigo blinks.
* Baine sheathes AmeShi and sheathes dagger
K... if you need anything though Cham, just ask. :)
Mr. Lizardman? What else?
* Baine eyes Erin..
* Vankarin, who seems to be totally calm about the situation, stands next to
Yogurt, who is the same... :P
* Baine shakes her head :P
* Indigo honestly doesn't understand.
on great..it was Indigo.
* FlameStrike takes Indigo and lifts her up by the neck
Flamestrike! Calm down.
FlameStrike, calm down and let her the fuck go, you moron! she didn't
know different, remember?! She's blank!
DON'T DARE CALL ME THAT AGAIN! I'M A DRAGON! DRAGON! GOT IT???
* Darton thinks that he's going to see more fighting between the members of
this crew than fighting monsters and evil...
* Indigo lashes out with a foot on instinct, lodging her sharp boot-end in his
* FlameStrike slams Indigo on the deck and goes in a corner
And we were bonding so well earlier...
* Baine buries her face in her hands and growls loudly..
Okay Mr....umm....Dragonman? Oof!
* Kodah flinches awy from Flamestrike
* Chamolo looks back to see where the octopi went.
Calm...think happy thoughts..
A tentacle pulls back over the railing quickly and grabs Chamolo!
* Indigo gets up and shakes her head.
* Chamolo chokes!
It's back... oh joy...
WHAT THE FUCK?
* FlameStrike jumps to the tentacle and slashes at it
* Baine draws AmeShi and leaps at the tentacle! "Let him go, bastard!!!"
* Chamolo is slowly being dragged off, losing air!
* Erin knocks another arrow! *
* Lara rushes the tentacle with her soulsword in hand.
* Indigo summons Neptune to throw the octopus out of the water.
* Darton leaps at it and claws madly again
A giant form raises out of the water slowly, throws Chamolo back on
the ship and spews ink on the deck.
* FlameStrike covers his eyes
* Kodah is nicely blackened now
* Chamolo coughs for air.
* Lara tries to shield her eyes.
* Baine blinks and kneels by Chamolo. "Uhm......uhm....uhm..."
* Erin fires at the tentacle, aimed far more carefully this time! *
Kara, is he alright?
* Baine has ink all over herself. :P
The arrow hits the tentacle and plants in it.
* Darton growls when he sees the condition of his cape... it's black now...
his fur was already dark grey, he doesn't care about that
* Kodah wipes some ink off of his face O_o
* Baine hesitates and slaps Chamolo lightly on the throat..
The octopus makes a loud shrieking sound!
===== COMBAT =====
* Chamolo gasps and coughs up water!
* Erin knocks another... *
* Kodah fumbles for his sword, still strugglingt o get the ink off his face
* Lara loosk right to the head of the octopus.. "Time to make some sushi."
===== Octopus, 8 tentacles =====
Argh.....you big goon!! *slaps Chamolo in the arm* I thought you said
you were being careful! :P
I was...but Flamestrike discracted me...
* Indigo prepares to summon an elemental.
* Baine then hugs Chamolo slightly and stands, drawing AmeShi.
I'm sorry... i just can't hold myself
I should have been the one to go take the look...
== Erin can attack!
* Darton grins ferally, apparently he's going to have fun today after all
Alright, guys...lets kick some monster ass.
Darton! Come with me!
I'm...I'm all right..
* Chamolo wipes the ink off his glasses.
You'd better be, Cham. :P
* Kodah spits up some ink, "Ptoo!"
* Erin quickly fires an arrow at Tentacle 1 !! *
As you're all fighting, you see a green "something" tangled up in
one of the octopus' tentacles...
....? What is that?
== Erin attacks Tentacle 1
what the fuck is that thing?
Hey!! Its Bill Clinton!
I wonder that is....
* Indigo walks over to it.
== The arrow lodges into the tentacle! 12 damage!
<`Kiwi> Help! Kiwi no wanna be octopus food!
What is everyone talking about?
It's....What IS THAT?
its Kiwi. Didn't you hear it? :P
