Shining Force RPG session 15
===== SESSION START =====
The stronghold of the birdmen is being assaulted by an unknown army...
Surely Darksol's troops, but which greater devil...
* Darton snarls, unhappy :P
* 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 looks at the ground, still green around the edges
What's going on?!
* Prince BlackHawk draws the Star Blade from it's sheath. It permeates with a holy
* Indigo frowns.
* Kodah me does not notice the blade's power, too wrapped in other things....
* Kiwi meeps unhappily, whimpering at the scene...
* Indigo prepares to summon an elemental.
* Yogurt growls.. Who's attacking the stronghold??
* Lara stands by the prince as she readies herself to fight.
One of the birdmen in the corner's eyes go wide and suddenly screams!
You be careful, Lara.
* Indigo turns.
I always am...you just take care of yourself.
* Chamolo blinks.
The woman clutches her child, screaming and pointing at Indigo!
* Darton flexes his claws, wanting to hurt something... only question is, what?
* Lara and BH nod at each other.
Excuse me. What is wrong miss?
* Kiwi blinks, confused.
What's wrong with her?
What's up with Indigo?
* Indigo looks serious for once, even preoccupied.
The woman cowers, unable to speak..
Kiwi no know what happening... Kiwi scared...
* Indigo frowns sharply at some thought.
could it be that the evil form of Indigo that Darksol extracted from her could
be the greater devil that's attacking?
Yet another situation, that is as clear as mud....
the door of the stronghold budges...
Knights...try to hold that stronghold!
Lara, what are you talking about?! O_o
you remember, Chamolo....
Do mean that thing with the thing?
You mean....oh no...
* Indigo goes over to the woman.
Darksol used some sort of machine to extract Indigo's violent personality and
give it form
What is the matter?
The door breaks down, a pack of wolfmen going through the door, slashing,
biting and snarling viciously...
But can he control it?
oh shit is right....
* Darton oogles... wolfmen... but he thought he was the only one... never saw
Darton, just fight...
A black form flies through the door, floating ominously at the back of the
* Indigo turns to it, preparing to summon an elemental again.
* Kodah clumsily draws his blade
Who are you? *Points at the floating figure*
* Lara surrounds her soulsword in holy lightning.
* Darton whines in confusion
a black mist fades, revealing the person's true identity...
Ahh... The Shining Force... This shall be fun...
* BlackHawk readies himself to strike at
* Kiwi runs to the back of the Shining Force, panicked.
O_o You were right, Lara...
* BlackHawk readies himself to strike at the wolfmen.
* Indigo goes to look at it.
Oh geeze..... ^^;;
I guess the old instincts are still there.
* Indigo blinks.
* Darton gives Blackhawk a violet-eyed glare...
Wolfmen! ATTACK THE REMAINING BIRDMEN!
You are...my twin? I am Indigo Mysteria, a sorceress.
not as long as we're here, Ready, Shining force?
Not really ^^;;
* Evil Indigo turns to Indigo... Twin? Hardly... *prepares a summon spell*
As ready as I'll ever be...
* Darton snarls viciously.
* Kiwi gulps.

Don't knock it, Kodah ^^
That wasn't so bad. ^_^
* Kodah puts his sword away
* Baine is in a happier mood than usual :P
* Yogurt growls to himself..
You've got some good allies, Lara. Mind introducing them?
* Darton has this inexplicable urge to maim something...
I don't understand. She wouldn't listen....
I CAN'T BELIEVE this is happening..
* Kiwi looks around...
* Indigo looks and sounds almost sane....
not at all, my Prince...
* Baine leans on Cham's shoulder, grinning like the cat that ate the bird. ^_^
Maybe the Evil Indigo is controlling the Wolfmen...but I STILL say the water had
something to do with it!
* Lara starts to point. "That's Kara Baine, Chamolo Wilcott, Kodah Emeriss, Indigo
Mysteria, Erin Gallant and Darton."
* Kodah waves at BH, a little overwhelmed, "Uh...hi" ^^;;
* Chamolo nods. "Nice to meet you, Sir Blackhawk."
* Baine pulls her mask down and nods to BH before hauling the mask back up. ^_^
Pleased to meet you all.
And what am I? AND KIWI? YEESH! :P
* Indigo just wanders off to do some thinking after nodding slightly to BH.
* Baine looks at Yogurt
* Kiwi sniffles, hurt.
* Darton is thinking and solidly ignores Blackhawk
well, I keep overlooking you, Yogurt...
* Chamolo laughs! ^_^
* Erin nods, but remains quiet. *
Yogurt and Kiwi..
* Yogurt blarghs and looks for a ring... :P
it has to do with your size and all...shorty.
* Baine licks her lips :P
* Kiwi looks at Baine with wide-eyes. "Kiwi no food! Kiwi coot turtle!"
* Yogurt frowns... I hate this place... :P
Anyway, you all look like hell. There are cots nearby if you want to use them to
* Indigo is now wandering around the courtyard and towards the gates.
* Darton looks around for something to hurt.
Thanks for the compliment.. -_-
* Baine grins at BH. "Gee...that was a compliment.." :P
* Baine snickers and wipes a smudge of dirt off Cham's nose.
* Chamolo blinks. "Um...thank you."
* Yogurt pulls out a ring and moves towards the two wolfmen...
* Kodah wanders to a cot and collapses on it
* Darton 's eyes alight on... Baine... he considers this for a long moment.
Just stating what I see. Please, acccept our humble (at best) hospitality for
* Darton notices Yogurt "What the hell are you doing?"
* Baine eyes Darton..
* Chamolo plops on a cot.
* Yogurt uses the ring... Trying to prove my theory, Darton...
* Indigo mumbles something and sits down on a cot, pulling out a book and retreating into
what theory is that? :P
Lara, you and I need to talk abour our little problem...the situation's gotten
a bit worse than we thought.
* Baine shrugs and saunters to a cot ^_^
* Kiwi pads to a cot and hides in his shell.
* Lara looks at BlackHawk. "They're getting impatient, aren't they? I just knew it."
* Yogurt uses the detox ring on the wolfmen...
* Kodah looks at the ceiling, as if it had answers
== The ring seems to have some effect... But it isn't conclusive...
that's not the half of it, Lara. I've been stalling this as long as I can,
now they want to set me up with the princess of New Galam.
* Baine polishes AmeShi, sitting crosslegged on the cot.. :P
* Darton sits down by the wolfmen, thinking long and hard...
* Lara and BlackHawk walk around, talking about their little problems.
* Yogurt looks at Darton... You wanna know what I think?
* Chamolo falls asleep, snoring lightly.
Is that so much to ask?
The river... A mind control poison...
* Indigo reads then sleeps.
if Darksol's forces hadn't attacked when they did, you wouldn't find me still
The only source of water for the wolfmen... They drank it...
That's why I always put them asleep...
* Darton snarls to himself...
And never attacked them..
* Lara looks worried. "I know...and the Queen of Guardiana won't stand for OUR
relationsip...what to do.."
* Lara and BlackHawk look out a window, still talking.
* Kodah turns away from the others and curls up into a ball
* Chamolo hears this. "Told you it was the river...*Yawn*"
* Baine chuckles at Chamolo.
Shuddap and get'cher sleep, spunky. :P
And those insensitive bastards.... *gestures at the so-called Shining Force*
didn't even try to spare their lives?
They didn't know!
* Lara shakes her head. "Why in the hell are they pushing this UNWRITTEN LAW on you,
Michael? It makes no sense."
* Darton's upper lip twitches just a tad at the thought anyway.
And!... I didn't.. Know.. For sure.. :\
I wish I knew, Lara. I really wish I knew.
* Kiwi snores in his shell...
* Chamolo snores.
This is the ONE reason we haven't made plans to marry yet...and your mother will
have KITTENS if she sees us together...you know how she feels about me
* Baine continues to polish silently..
* Lara and BlackHawk go to private quarters to talk...
The birdmen go to the back of the stronghold, since the door is still down...
* Indigo wakes up and looks around, her eyes shining brightly.
* Baine is still polishing :P
Uhm.. Shouldn't we.. Like.. Reseal this thing..?
Reseal what thing?
* Baine hmms
Not my worry.
* Baine licks her thumb and drags it down the blade to test the sharpness.. :P
* Yogurt grumbles.. Never your worry, you dumbass insult to wolfmen..
* Indigo looks at the doors with little interest.
* Darton growls...
Oh growl all you want! You ARE an insult to wolfmen everywhere!
* Chamolo mumbles something about peas and tupperware in his sleep.
* Baine's thumb bleeds.. :P
* Kiwi pops his head out of his shell cootly and blinks dazedly...
* Darton puts a claw under Yogurt's chin and quietly says, "Do you wish to die or drop the
No...no! Stop! Back... you... vile.... tupperware..... oh.. no... the... damn...
* Yogurt pulls out a ring... Kill me and this whole place blows up..
Like I care.
* Baine growls.
* Yogurt glares at Darton.. Again... Insult to wolfmen everywhere..
* Yogurt slips on the ring and runs so fast, Darton doesn't have any time to react...
* Darton snarls and backhands Yogurt with a paw.
* Yogurt pulls off the ring, now far away of the team...
* Baine chuckles..
That was interesting, Darton.
* Indigo looks at it all with something almost close to sanity.
* Darton sits down and waits fpr one of the wolfmen to wake up
* Baine sucks some blood from her thumb
* Indigo just gets up and heads for the gates.
===== Cut Scene! =====
Darksol sits on his throne, looking down at Evil Indigo, utterly
I give you a SIMPLE TASK... And you can't accomplish it!
* Indigo Snarls... What could I DO?! If your STUPID devils stopped the Shining Force, I
coulda destroyed Bedoe by now, but NOOOOOO! Too damn incompe....... *a dagger flies 1
centimeter away from her neck*
* Dorak walks in... Watch your tongue, woman... Or you shall lose it...
* Indigo glares at Dorak... What makes you think YOU can do ANYTHING to me?!
* Darksol, mildly amused, lets this continue...
* Dorak grins... Because you are weak... And I am not...
* Indigo snarls and summons Dao to crush the incompetence out of Dorak!
* Darksol dismisses the spell with a gesture of his hand...
That was... Somewhat entertaining...
* Darksol points to a shackled woman on the wall... Now... The person who tells me what
can be done with this girl shall get the opportunity to finish off Bedoe...
* Dorak quickly blurts out, "Couldn't we convert her as we did with the old Vicar?"
No... Some energy's stopping me from doing anything...
* Dorak grins... Then I shall bring her with me as bait...
* Indigo sits in her dark corner, not wanting to get involved..
* Darksol nods... Then it shall be done... Take her...
* Darksol removes the shackles with a hand gesture and Dorak takes her...
* Dorak dissapears, Indigo in her corner, plotting revenge..
===== End cut scene! =====
The Shining Force is now fully rested... Lara walks out with BlackHawk, her
face slightly flushed...
* Kodah still looks glum
Uhm... Hi team... :)
* Baine is not rested.... Actually, she was up all night polishing AmeShi :P
Everyone fully rested? :)
* Indigo turns.
* Darton was up all night next to the wolfmen in hopes that they'd wake up... he ignores
Lara for the most part.
More or less...
I'll be fine for another day...
* Kiwi pokes head out of shell again... "Too early for morning... make morning later, like
You're sure chipper...
Good... Lara tells me you came here to consult with Volcanon...
* Baine grins evilly..
* Baine taptaps on Kiwi's shell. "But you're my main course for breakfast...you need to be
His statue has been inactive for 5 years now...
* Indigo seems slightly distracted this morning, but tries to pay attention.
But... It is worth a try...
* Kiwi retreats back into the safety of his shell. =)
I'll stay here. Gods scare me.
* Lara hangs on BlackHawk's arm, grinning stupidly... Uh... Yeah... ^_^
* Baine chuckles at Lara
* Indigo goes to Kiwi and picks him up.
I'll pass, I don't think I have anything to say....
* Chamolo doesn't quite get Lara's mood, but he smiles at her anyway.
* Kiwi meeps from inside his shell, making it sound so echoey and coot.
I will go. I think I should talk to Volcanon. As I recall, I did try to summon
So..Lara....did you guys use oil or maybe water? ;)
* Indigo looks inside the shell.
It's me, Indigo.
* Chamolo finally gets what went on "You didn't... O_O."
* Baine chuckles at Cham
* Lara's eyes widen at Baine... That is NONE of your business, Baine!
It's dark inside Kiwi's shell.
She didn't...he didn't.....whoa...right on the battlefield? Isn't that a little
I was joking, Lara. Y'know. Ha ha. :P
I didn't expect you to say.. :P
* Baine glances at Cham. "Not really."
It could get you a rash, though. ;)
* Indigo looks inside for Kiwi, then drops him in a pouch without thinking and goes to sit
* BlackHawk shakes his head and whispers to Lara, "I see what you meant about the Shining
* Chamolo arghs.
* Baine sighs lightly. "Fine.."
* Baine's face darkens and she goes quiet.
* Indigo sits down, looking out of a window.
* Chamolo is silent, hearing Blackhawks comment (Vaugely, but he sorta got the gist.)
* BlackHawk whispers something to Lara and moves off...
I wonder if she's okay.....
* Baine mutters something acidic and kicks a bit at the ground...
She doesn't think very highly of us, does she?
* Darton nods off, asleep, not having moved from where he was
BlackHawk's gonna lead us to Volcanon's statue... Let's go...
* Baine shakes her head at Chamolo..
* Indigo blinks.
* Chamolo follows Lara silently.
Oh, okay. I wonder what happened to Mitula though. I think I need to talk to
* Baine follows too, equally silent.
* Lara follows behind BlackHawk, checking out the goods... :P
* Indigo speaks to herself as she goes, but follows.
* Kiwi follows after a while...
The paths of stone house many rooms, some occupied, others empty...
* Darton sleeps where he is, still next to the two wolfmen
* BlackHawk moves faster, seemingly not wanting to see any of this...
* Baine mutters something..
* Indigo stops.
I'll try to fix it with my magic.
* Kodah lies back on his cot, looking at the ceiling again
* BlackHawk continues to walk towards the top of the stronghold...
* Chamolo follows, his boots still making wierd sounds cuz they got wet :P
Uhm... Michael..? Slow down a little...
* Indigo sighs, keeping the power ready as she follows. She even tries skipping a few
times but stops and just talks to the air as she walks.
* Baine is just silent
* BlackHawk slows down and Lara catches up...
The temple is just ahead...
* Kiwi keeps following, not looking awake.
Doors are carved in the stone in intricate patterns, light can be seen shining
out of them...
* Indigo goes to look in a door.
*mutters under her breath* Grand...more holy stuff for me to defile..wee..
* Baine eyes the door
A birdman in the room cowers as she sees Indigo..
* Indigo goes over to the birdman.
The birdman screams! Get away from me!!
* Indigo just walks towards it.
* BlackHawk groans, stops and goes to take Indigo with him...
I'm your friend.
* Baine flinches and looks at Indigo and the Birdman :P
Don't worry, it's just mistaken idenity.
My name is Indigo and I....
Indigo.. Come with me. *takes her by the arm* Leave them alone..
* Indigo pauses as her sanity slips for a moment, then resumes.
I.....haven't done anything wrong.
* Baine looks a bit amused for a second, her eyes clouded. "Heh...evil twin...sounds like
a soap opera kind of plot.."
I really think I should go find her.
* BlackHawk shakes his head and leads her out...
What's a soap opera?
That... Look alike of you scared them enough... You're not helping.. K'mon..
* Baine blinks at Chamolo blankly for a second and then nods a bit.. "A really cheesy and
slutty sort of play.."
* Baine shifts her gaze to the ground..
The doors open as the group approaches...
I guess I can try to summon Volcanon again first....then go look for her. If I
can reach her inner goodness....
Um...Indigo...Volcanon is male.
A grand garden is seen... Beautiful flowers lining the perimeter of a grand and
* Baine looks kind of depressed and eyes the flowers..
* BlackHawk points to the temple... There it is... Volcanon's shrine...
* Kiwi looks around with shining eyes...
* Indigo nods and starts gathering the silver-blue energy.
* BlackHawk starts to walk away, but Lara stops him...
I wonder what he wlll say and do.
Where are you going..?
This isn't my place, Lara... And I have to defend the gates... I'll see you
after you're done...
* Lara nods and walks towards the shrine as BlackHawk leaves...
* Indigo drops her power and follows.
* Baine follows Lara, looking at the flowers still with a rare look of sadness (for her,
* Lara enters the shrine...
You alright, Baine?
* Chamolo puts a hand on her shoulder.
* Baine flinches.
Pillars of massive stone support the ceiling of the shrine, flames illuminate
the grand palace, and a giant sized statue of a phoenix stands on an altar in the middle
of the room...
That's good ^_^
* Baine looks around at the decorations..
* Indigo looks at it.
