Shining Force RPG session 21
===== SESSION START =====
The caravan carries the Shining Force slowly towards New Granseal... The
journey of the Shining Force nearing its end...
* Kodah continues to read his book
* Kiwi snores in his shell...
* Lara steers the Caravan with BH at her side.
* Indigo sleeps on Crest's shoulder.
* Darton is curled up in some corner somewhere sleeping
* Baine crosses her arms, leaning back and looking at the ceiling on the caravan...
* Chamolo is right next to Baine. ^_^
* Baine glances over at Chamolo.
The road leads to the river that shall bring them to New Granseal... The
river seems to be unusually shallow...
* Lara steers on toward Granseal.
* Kodah mouths some of the more difficult words
* Chamolo scoots over and puts his arm around Baine. ^_^
* Baine grins and curls against Chamolo.....loving his body heat. ^_^
* Indigo fluffs Crest's head.
* Chamolo blinks at Indigo.
Oh goddesses...there she goes with her pillow talk..
* Indigo nestles against Crest's head and smiles. ^_^
* Baine grins at Chamolo
* Kodah gives up on reading and stares out the window
* Lara looks at BH and thinks to herself regarding her future with the prince.
* Kiwi pokes his head out of his shell sleepily. "Why river low?"
So, are we nearly there?
Heh...are we there yet? Are we there yet?
* Baine chuckles.
Moooooooooooooooommmmmm.....Chamolo's touching meeee! ;)
The opening of the river lies near...
* Baine is in good spirits, apparently :P
* Lara steers on toward the opening of the river.
* Chamolo kisses Baine and smiles. ^_^
Yes I am.
* Baine grins.."Uh huh....and why was I complaining? Hmmm.....oh well."
* Baine kisses Chamolo back ;)
* Baine blushes softly and hauls her mask back up.. "So....where are we now..?"
heading toward Granseal.
Yeah..but where are we on....oh, nevermind. :P
* Indigo yawns and stretches, standing up.
* Crest is asleep in the caravan because he could not get enough sleep, because a
certain someone was yelling out "MORE MORE MORE!!" in the next room last night.......
The mountains slowly recede, the river comes to an end... The caravan
returns to solid ground...
* Lara changes course to New granseal.
* Baine nuzzles Chamolo's shoulder and murmurs something about a bed...
*** Bahamut is now known as Erin
* Indigo turns, sets Crest lying down in the caravan set prone, then rests her head
against his chest and reads.
And....and.....*voice lowers a bit..* a nice pillow...
* Chamolo smiles and blushes.
The valley of New Grans opens up... Lush foliage is seen all around...
Wildlife is abundant...
* Indigo looks up.
Right back where we started.
Stop and I can go hunting ^_^
* Crest murmurs something about choking......
I've never been to New Granseal before.....
well, we've got our work cut out for us anyway...
* Indigo hears Crest and bangs her head against his chest to ease the choking. ^_^
* Kiwi's tummy grumbles.
* Baine runs her fingers along AmeShi's sheath...
* Crest starts snoring VERY loudly
* Darton looks up
If you're gonna stop to go get something to eat... I'll get my own.
What, you don't trust me? ^_-
* Indigo frowns and then pounds his chest with her tiny fist to make sure his breathing
is okay. ^_^
I don't trust you.
* Baine chuckles.
I love you too.
* Kodah continues to look out the window, gawking like a tourist
A small lake can be seen to the north... Large green creatures are swimming
* Crest coughs and brings his hand around Indigo hitting her in the face........
* Lara keeps steering toward the castle.
The green creatures look like giant turtles...
* Indigo slaps him upside the head, then returns to her book. ^_^
* Kiwi looks up, interested. Meep?
Lovely...Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles..
* Crest wakes up with a jump "Huh?"
* Indigo looks at him and grins.
As the caravan passes by, they seem to be of the same race as Kiwi...
Just making sure you're still alive.
* Crest looks down at her "Did you hit me?"
will you all calm down?
Not hit, just slapped. Besides, you hit me. :P
* Kiwi meeps happily and gets off the caravan!
* Crest scratches his head "I did...?"
* Indigo nods and looks out.
* Lara stops the caravan.
A bunch of Kiwis! :D
* Darton thinks about getting off the Caravan, cause he's hungry and those turtles look
* Baine watches Kiwi roll :P
Oh, well, I'm sorry, I didn't mean to
As the group spots Kiwi, they stop everything and walks towards him in
What is he doing?
* Indigo nods and smiles.
* Kodah watches
* Baine searches for the word :P
* Crest gets up and just watches, staying beside Indigo
* Kiwi tries to run, but being a turtle, he doesn't move all that fast...
They circle Kiwi and start touching him and looking at him...
* Indigo looks out at them.
A nation of mascots. ^_^
* Lara watches, her eyelids getting heavy.
* Darton salivates slightly at the sight
Kiwi so happy! What other turtles doing here? What happening now?
A large turtle, much larger than most of them walks forth and stands in
front of Kiwi...
* Baine reaches for AmeShi, eyeing the big turtle..
He starts speaking in a strange tongue that only Kiwi seems to understand...
* Lara draws the Force sword as she can no longer summon it like her old soulsword.
Hmmm, wonder what he's saying.....
~Welcome, brother... Where are you from?~
* Indigo looks on.
* Chamolo looks on as well, quiet
* Baine lets out a frustrated sigh :P
~Kiwi no have home, Kiwi wander for lots and lots of years. Kiwi is Kiwi of
* Crest shrugs and leans against the outside of the caravan, brings out his flute and
begins playing a soft melody
* Indigo smiles at the fluteplaying.
~ Then you are the Kiwi of the Shining Force... As I thought... ~
The turtle starts talking in the native human tongue...
Welcome, Shining Force... This is the valley of the Turtles... You are
* Indigo smiles and nods.
* Kiwi beams. ^_^
* Baine thinks... . o O (I'm going stir craaaaaaaaazy... :P This caravan is way too
I suppose that means I can't eat any.
I'm Indigo Mysteria, a sorceress and elementalist. ^_^
* Crest continues playing, not really caring much
* Chamolo gives Darton a look
* The Turtle blinks at Darton... No... You cannot...
* Darton looks down at his rumbling stomach and wanders off
I'm Lara Mano, leader of the shining force and this is Prince BlackHawk of
Don't mind the puppy dog...he hasn't had his shots.. :P
* Kodah oogles
* BlackHawk waves.
My name is Ecko... I'm the tribes leader of this group...
* Kiwi plays in the flowers...
* Indigo walks up to Ecko and looks at him curiously.
Kiwi is part of your team?
How did your kind come to be Ecko? A magical experiment gone awry?
yes, Ecko, he is.
* Kiwi noddles!
No, Indigo... We evolved... Free from human influence...
* Baine draws the flaming blade of AmeShi and drives it into the seat of the caravan...
Interesting.....life along reptilian instead of mammalian vectors. I'd like to
study you Ecko.
I would like to talk to Kiwi some more... Know more of his adventure... Thus, I
invite you, Shining Force, to spend a night with us...
not a good idea, Indi.
* Kodah continues to stare
* Crest glances at Baine "You're gonna have to fix that....."
* Darton is not here.
Chew me, Crest. :P
Bite me Baine
* Kiwi nods. "Okay."
Sounds like a plan to me.
It's either here or cramped in the caravan.
and to me.
Not even if you paid me, toothpaste kid
Just keep Darton away.
* Indigo nods.
Whatever ever, flat chest
Yes, a study of your life would be interesting.
Good... Then it's settled!
Low blow from someone who can't take a blowjob from his mom..
* Ecko speaks once again in the strange tongue...
~ Let us prepare a feast for our guest! We shall have a celebration tonight!
The turtles scurry away happily
* Kiwi follows them.
A party? Fun!
* Baine yanks AmeShi out of the seat and sheathes it.
* Indigo wanders off to sit under a tree and watch the funny turtles. ^_^
* Ecko walks towards the lake... Follow me... I shall lead you to our gathering place.
* Baine leaps out of caravan.
* Kiwi nods and follows.
* Kodah wanders after the big turtle
This place is kinda.....nice....
* Baine follows slowly after Kodah, enjoying the freedom of the outdoors :P
* Chamolo nods.
* Baine idly tugs Chamolo along by the elbow. ;)
* Indigo follows along, observing and recording all she sees.
* Ecko walks through a veil of vines and wild tree leaves...
* Lara and blackHawk walk arm in arm, following Ecko.
* Chamolo is tugged ^_^
* Kodah gingerly pushes aside the vines and leaves
So Ecko, do you have magic-users amongst your kind?
* Baine follows through the vines and leaves ^_^
* Crest just follows
As the shining force passes through the veil of foliage, they come to a
large open grove with dozens of turtles walking around, playing and working... Flowers
carpet the ground in millions of colors, butterflies idly fly around... This seems
close to paradise...
* Baine mutters. "Yeah yeah...lovely.."
* Kiwi jumps in the flowers!
Indigo, to answer your question, few of us are childrens of magic...
Why is that?
* Baine gingerly lets go of Chamolo's elbow and reaches out, catching a butterfly with
* Crest looks around the grove
* Chamolo smiles at Baine, and picks a flower, putting it in her hair.
* Ecko sighs.. I'm humiliated to admit this, but... Some of our race lack... The
intelligence necessary for learning spells...
* Baine blinks and she lets go of the butterfly..
* Baine grins at Chamolo
Is it me?
* Baine poses. ^_-
Oh. Well, I can teach those of you who can learn. ^_^
* Crest looks at Baine them mutters something about anyone looking at her would turn to
Few of us have achieved spellcraft level...
It's you. ^_^
* Baine grins idly and drags a finger down Cham's chest. "Mmmhmmm....thanks..."
* Chamolo holds her.
* Crest turns around disgusted at Baine's unlady-like manners
* Baine notices Crest and snickers..
* Lara looks out over the lagoon. "This is just simply amazing."
* Indigo notices Baine and Crest and laughs.
* Baine's eyes widen as she notices the lagoon. "Hmmm.." ;)
* Kodah continues to oogles at it all o_O
* Kiwi eats some flowers...
Need a bath? ;)
just like that place you showed me near Guardiana.
* Chamolo chuckles. "In front of everyone?>>
Maybe later, then.....tonight...hmm..
I need to get my back scrubbed anyways..
* Chamolo grins.
I can do that. ^_^
* Indigo looks at Crest.
Can't you be nice to Baine?
* Baine nods and winks at Cham. "Figured you could..."
. o O (Yes, going to hell isn't so bad. ^_^)
* Crest walks over to a tree and climbs up into it and quietly plays his flute
* Baine feels incredibly happy for some reason..
* Crest stops and looks down at Indi "Sure, when she starts acting nice....."
I must decline your offer, Indigo... Learning magic was not meant for us...
* Lara looks at BH. "You know, Mike, a swim wouldn't be a bad idea."
* Kodah sits down on a rock, overwhelmed by what he's seeing
* Chamolo looks at Lara. "Hmm...the lagoon might be crowded tonight.'
I am inclined to agree, Lara. Am I ever inclined to agree.
* Baine chuckles!
Hmmmm....that's really too bad Ecko.
I shall leave for the preperations now... I will come find you when we are ready
for the celebration...
* Indigo sits under Crest's tree and listens to his music.
* Ecko walks off to supervise the preperations...
* Baine idly bumps Cham with her hip, going over to a tree and sitting down against it.
* Crest throws a chessnut down on Baine "Hey! I was here first! Get your own tree"
* Chamolo falls in the lagoon with a splash!
* Indigo sighs.
* Baine growls up at Crest and then blinks as Cham tumbles into the lagoon
* Chamolo pops up and spits out water.
* Baine stands and sprints over to the Lagoon.
Ooh. This actually is nice.
* Chamolo smiles and dives in!
* Baine blinks ^_-
* Indigo looks at Cham, then climbs up the tree and sits next to Crest on his branch.
* Baine sits down by the edge of the lagoon and dangles her feet in the water..
Sorry, I'm not usually like that, its just I can't stand her much."
* Kodah wanders over to the lagoon and watches everyone
Oh, she's nice, just a little misguided. ^_^
* Lara and BH stand by the lagoon.
* Chamolo grabs on to Baine's feet, and drags her in! :D
Well, a lot misguided actually. ^_^
* Baine lands in with a splash!
Hello you. ^_^
* Baine pops out of the water and flicks her hair back....
* Baine eyes Chamolo, grinning..
* Baine pounces on Chamolo and dunks him!
* Crest scratches his head for a moment, "Uh, this may sound a bit weird, but uh, later
tonight, would you like to go.... uh, swimming in the lagoon?"
* Chamolo is dunked!
* Baine lets him up for air. ^_-
* Kiwi aughs, and turns to Ecko. "You wanted to talk to Kiwi?"
Swimming? I don't know how....I just always summoned Neptune for water travel.
* Baine runs a hand through her soaked hair..
Watch, I can show you.
My armor might rust.. ^_-
* Chamolo smiles.
* Indigo closes her eyes, preparing to summon Neptune.
Oh, its quite easy, I can show you how to swim
* Baine splashes Chamolo ;)
* Lara and BlackHawk dive into the lagoon.
That is, if you want me to....
* Chamolo splashes back.
Okay. Maybe I'll show you how I swim then too. ^_^
We should get out now. I think other people want to swim as well.
* Baine blinks and water drips off her chin and nose. ^_-
So? We aren't taking up much space.. ^_-
* Kodah quietly returns to his book
* Indigo suddenly loses focus and falls to the ground, brushes herself off, and sits
We'll wait till its dark, that way we can have the lagoon to ourselves
* Baine swims closer to Chamolo. "Besides....water works for you...."
* Kiwi pokes Ecko. "You wanted to talk to Kiwi?"
Uh huh.....dunno....it....defines your body.. ^_-
don't think you'll have the entire lagoon to yourselves tonight, Chamolo and
* Crest climbs down the tree, and leans on Indigo, putting his arm around her "So, how
does that sound?"
* Indigo nods, her eyes flickering between sanity and insanity.
* Ecko eeps and turns to Kiwi... Yes, Kiwi... But we shall talk during the feast...
* Crest nods "Okay then, its a date then! =)"
* Baine dives under the water and then resurfaces...
* Kodah continues reading, feeling kinda insecure about the situation
* The turtles lead Kiwi away, giggling and jumping around!
* Chamolo dives under the water, looking around the bottom
* Lara and BH clamber out of the lagoon and dry off, nodding to each other.
* Indigo nods in her weird way, looking at him with piercing and a disturbing way.
* Kiwi wavies to the rest of the group!
* Indigo looks over.
* Baine floats over to a smaller part of the lagoon and just floats on her back,
staring at the sky..
* Crest takes his flute and begins playing once more, a soft steady melody, a few high
notes here and there, but the song moves like the flow of the water....
* Chamolo dives back up
* Indigo smiles.
o/~ It's invisible but so touchable and I can feel it on my body, so
* Chamolo starts sneaking up behind Baine..
* Chamolo dunks her _^^
The light slowly diminishes from the grove... Night is soon to fall...
* Baine blinks and is suddenly under water O_o
* Crest looks up at the sky and wonders, are if the others have left the area yet.....
Hey, uh, Indi, you around here?
* Chamolo finally gets out of the pool, then sighs.
I forgot, this is my only clean pair of clothes...now they're all wet!
* Lara stands by a tree lost in thought...
* Baine follows Chamolo out and chuckles..
You think thats bad? My armor is gonna rust..
You'll still look cute
* Baine stretches and wrings out her hair..
* Chamolo wrings out his clothes as best he can.
what do you think is wrong, Mike? After this, We'll probably be forced to
separate. I don't want that to happen.
* Baine pauses and eyes Chamolo
* Indigo looks up and smiles, though oddly.
The sun slowly dissapears, taking the light with it...
* Kodah gives up on his book
I know, Lara...but we don't know of any loophole around that damn unwritten
law at all.
Shall we? I think the others are finally done with the lagoon.
* Chamolo is slightly chilled.
* Baine wraps an arm around Cham's waist and grins..
Soooooooo.....wheres the party?
* Indigo just looks around.
* Kodah wonders what is going to happen next
* Chamolo puts his arm around hers, content.
* Lara bows her head. "Prince BlackHawk, you join the others at the party. I just want
to be alone for a little while."
* Darton is gone, gone, gone, gone, gone! :D
OK, Lara, but you just don't do anything rash.
* Crest smiles at Indigo, and then looks around seeing if the others are still at the
* Lara is walking around, lost in thought.
* Baine's armor creaks.
Ah hell :P
* Ecko walks over to a large pile of wood which was collected in the center of
* Kiwi looks, curious.
* Baine raises an eyebrow
* Indigo looks at it.
* Chamolo sits down on the soft grass.
* Ecko starts chanting softly...
* Baine falls on her face :P
* Lara has her back turned to the party.
* Kodah sits down, watching and wondering
Well, uh, you ready?
The wood starts to glow... And then burst into flames, creating a 10 foot
* Indigo looks at the fire and simply nods.
* BlackHawk looks back at Lara and returns his attention to Ecko.
* Chamolo is nearly fried! @_@
* Chamolo leaps back
* Baine grimaces and picks herself up, blinking at the flames..
Ah, you call upon a latent power of the Elemental of Fire.
* Crest quickly turns around and looks at the fire "What the..!!"
Chamolo! Eesh...toasty man no good.. :P
Everything around the bonfire is illuminated, showing many decorations and a
large table covered in exotic fruits, nuts and a few meat dishes...
* Baine gapes.
* Indigo licks her lips.
Decent food! Wow.....
This is definately like a vacation..
I'm worried about her.
The bonfire slowly dies down to a normal level... Still illuminating the
* Chamolo adjusts his glasses and grins. "Thank you very much, Sir Ecko!"
* Lara seems to be a bit depressed...
Indigo, I guess our swim could wait a little eh?
* Ecko smiles and nods...
* Baine stares at the flames, eyes flashing..
The turtles in the corner start playing attraying music...
* Indigo nods.
The rest dance and eat happily
What do we do now?
* Kiwi parties. =)
* Lara leans against a tree, still lost in her thoughts. Her back is turned to the
* Crest takes Indigo's and and walks over by the bonfire and sits down with her "Bring
on the food!!"
What else... Party!
* Indigo sits down next to Crest, observing the turtles.
* Baine barely hears the talk and slowly starts to reach her hand to the fire.. -_-;
A group of turtles bring food to the Shining Force...
Ecko, would you mind if I put on a magic show later?
If there is a soup slurping contest, I am leaving O_o
* BlackHawk turns to Kodah. "I can't think of a time when I've seen Lara like this.
It worries me."
Sorry, a little inside joke of mine.
* BlackHawk points to Lara, leaining against the tree.
* Kodah looks around for Lara
* Baine yelps and yanks her hand away. -_-
Where'd she go anyway?
Bring on the food, the wine! And the dancing, uh...... nevermind
* Indigo mock-glares at him, then nods.
The turtles start bellydancing!
With this mission coming to a close, she's gotten worried about our
relationship. Me being royalty and all.
Is that a problem?
* Baine blinks and overhears BH, eyes widening..
* Baine looks at Chamolo and thinks..
* Crest drops his jaw and looks at the belly dancing turtles
an unwritten law. As the only heir to the throne, I have to marry into
royalty..and I don't want to. Lara is the only one I want.
Can't you change the law?
* Indigo just records it, then puts her hand on his jaw and pushes it back in.
BlackHawk: You don't know the royal family of Guardiana.
Well, you're going to be king at some point right?
* Baine looks at her red and burning hand..
* Ecko walks over to Kiwi...
* Chamolo looks at her hand. O_o
Then you can make all the changes you want
Ah...touched the fire..
* Baine grins meekly.
* Chamolo pulls her hand into his lap and starts healing it ^^;
I will, but I don't know how long...and I have been pressured the past six
months by my parents....it's driving me mad and making her more and more depressed.
* Baine blinks and flushes lightly..
Tell your parent's to hush up
* Ecko starts speaking in his native tongue...
We think that pendant of hers has some kind of loophole for us, but no one
knows anything about the crest on it.
~ Kiwi... Are you truly happy with the Shining Force? ~
* Kiwi doesn't answer...
* Chamolo heals her hand up, good as new!
^_^ There ya be, Lady Kara.
* Crest eats some food and then gets up and walks away from the bonfire party......
~ They... they... Kiwi no know... ~
So keep your parents busy either until you;re king or you find out about it
* Baine grins a bit and nods.. "Thanks, Cham....you're a sweetheart.."
* Indigo watches him go.
~ They nice, and all, but... ~
It's no problem...
* Baine 's eyes are full of worry.. -_-;
~ We're always looking for more of our kind, Kiwi... We're rebuilding our
communities that were destroyed in the past... That is why... ~
* Ecko hesitates a little...
~ It strange, it no like before... previous Shining Force more serious and less
naughty-oriented... but... ~
* Crest beckons Indigo to follow
We've tried every historian in the world...VOlcannon said something to her
but his statue was crushed by Dark Dragon before he could get the sentence out.
~ Will you stay with us, Kiwi? ~
~ ... ... ~
* Chamolo eats some of the fine fare. ^_^
~ Kiwi think about it... give answer in morning? ~
* Baine pokes at her food, thinking about what BH said..
* Indigo eats up.
~ Yes... Ok... For now, enjoy yourself... See our culture... Our lives...
But if you refuse now, you might never be able to come back here.. Keep that in mind,
You're not a resource you know Blackhawk, yer a human being. Remind your
parents of that
~ Kiwi know... Kiwi want time to decide... ~
* Baine mumbles...
* Lara stands alone..
~ That you have, Kiwi... ~
* Ecko turns to a few other turtles and joins in the festivities...
You think I haven't tried, Kodah? They won't listen to me at all. You
obviously haven't had much dealings with royalty.
No, I haven't
* Kiwi wanders off...
You just have to keep at it
* Crest looks at Indigo, and smiles at her, he beckons her to follow him.....
* Baine growls in frustration at herself..
I was going to ask Creed, but never got the chance...
* Indigo looks over and decides to follow him.
Now I'll summon Neptune.
* Chamolo hand Baine some exotic fruit. "Try this!"
* Baine blinks and snaps back into reality.
* Lara sits down behind her tree.
* Chamolo smiles and feeds her some.
You know, I'd like to learn magic as powerful as you have, but, I not' as
talented as everyone else in this party, most of my magic is relied upon my flute....
* Baine blinks as she is fed the fruit...
* Kiwi is lost in thought...
Hmmm....have you tried other magics?
* Kodah goes silent again, munching half-heartedly on the offered food
