===== SESSION START! =====
The Shining Force arrives at Granseal... All the people of their past
adventure gathered in one place...
* Jeyer pounces and tackles Baine!
* Baine blinks and is tackled!!
* Chamolo realizes he has some epxplaining to do to his daddy -_- Like how he's not a
virgin anymore ^^;
It's about time you showed up!
* Baine blinks and looks at Jeyer. "Too much sugar, Ninja boy?" :P
Sorry...we were delayed ^_^;
* Indigo smiles at this and goes to see Vankarin.
* Kiwi sighs and goes back to sleep... . o O (Crazy-people-type persons...)
* Lara looks into BlackHawk's eyes. "This is going to be our toughest fight yet."
* Chamolo decides to get this over with ^^;
* Vankarin stays behind with Yogurt as the king and the Arch Bishop advance...
You're telling me...good luck, Lara.
* Chamolo walks up to his old man. ^^;
* Darton yawns widely
* Chamolo begins to sweat O_o
* Indigo runs towards him.
* Baine eyes Chamolo :p
* Lara turns to the King and the Arch Bishop. BH does the same.
EEP! IT'S THE CRAZY MENTAL NUTCASE!
* Yogurt runs!
* Darton blinks. "Huh?"
* Kodah continues to look like he has no idea what's going on ^^;;
* Jeyer gets up and returns to Nalya's side, who is scowling...
No, no! That was cured! I'm sane now, and in possession of new powers!
* Baine raises an eyebrow and saunters to Nalya. "So you're the skirt that tamed the
Ninja, eh? Take care of him.."
* Kodah looks critically at Nalya
* Nalya blinks and raises an eyebrow at Baine...
* Indigo goes to find Yogurt.
* Baine grins at Jeyer and then saunters off after Chamolo.
* The king greets Lara...
* Lara bows to the King. "Majesty, the Shining Force is ready for action."
* Jeyer chuckles... Kodah... Relax...
* Chamolo is sweating ^^;
and allow me to introduce the Prince of Guardiana Kingdom, Michael BlackHawk.
Good, Lara... We've been under siege for a week now... Awaiting the Shining
Force for the offensive...
* Chamolo bows to the king and begins to chicken out O_o;;;
* BlackHawk bows to the king.
* Baine places a hand on Cham's shoulder.
This is going to be difficult ^^;
* The king looks at BlackHawk and nods in recognition...
This is it, Shining Force. I hope you're ready for the fight of our lives.
* Darton leans against a wall, bored.
* Kodah waits for events to sort themselves out without him, as usual
Hah, Lara! I was born ready!
* Lara turns to BH. "I want you to stay here and defend Granseal. I'll be fine."
* Indigo wanders back from chasing Yogurt.
* Baine grins
Take care of yourself, Lara...
Come... We shall tend to your wounds and replenish your supplies...
Well, I suppose it is time for my training to pay off.
Maybe I can see my sister before going off into the unknown.
* Baine grins idly and taps her chin, thinking..
* Lara follows the king. BH does the same.
* Kodah folows, what else is there to do?
Cham...you should introduce me to your 'rents..
* Darton has nothing better to do, so he trots along behind everyone else
* Chamolo sighs. ^^; Yeah that'd be a good idea wouldn't it ^^;
* The king and everyone else go inside the gates, some people tending to cleaning the
Yep, Cham.... *grins and hugs Cham's arm.*
* Kodah tugs on Erin's sleeve
* Erin's sleeve is tugged upon. * Yes?
* Baine is walking....and tugging Chamolo along. ^_^
How am I supposed to act around royalty? o_o
what a mess....How long has Granseal been under siege?
* Indigo walks after them, looking around.
* Baine is extremely cheery ^_^
Gods...what a beautiful day!
Mostly just quiet and courteous. ^_^ Never speak unless spoken too...
* Chamolo smiles at Baine and hugs her arm.
* Kiwi trods along, half-asleep. ;)
* Vankarin turns to Lara and says blankly, "8 days..."
* Baine grins at Chamolo
* Indigo smiles, seeing things sanely for the first time.
8 days...how high are the casualties?
Wonder what your parents will think of me...heheheheh... ^_^;
We lost half our troops... But managed to take out the most powerful
^^; Actually, it's just my father.
Father....and sister... still a tough crowd. ^_-
My real parents died when I was a newborn.
The gates are opened and the people walk back in, heading towards the
So all that's left is Dark Dragon and Zeon, because my opposite is gone.
* Indigo points to her heart.
Vankarin, if it means anything, I'll stay here and help you defend Granseal
while the Shining Force is fighting.
Mine were squished by a giant horse thing, Cham.. :p
Wait...thats a bull and a human.. :p
* Vankarin nods to BlackHawk... Thank you for the offer... We'll gladly accept it...
* Baine doesn't sound sad....just.....cheery.. O_o
you're thinking about a centaur, Kara.
* Chamolo sounds sad. "Least you knew your parents."
* Kodah looks around, uncomfortably, unused to royalty of any sort
* Indigo blinks as she remembers.....
I...killed my parents.
* Kiwi meeps sadly...
* Lara holds onto the charm on her pendant. "may it bring us luck."
Cham... *grins sympathetically* you've got me now....and your foster father and
The castle looks desolate... The streets are burned and charred from
multiple fire arrows... Structures are destroyed...
* Chamolo nods. "I know. ^_^ I'm lucky."
* Baine grins and squeezes Cham ^_^
such destruction. Granseal is going to need a lot of rebuilding.
No joke, Lara...and maybe Guardiana can help when this fight's all over.
* Kodah looks around glumly at the destruction o_o
Mmmmhmmm......gods..."all over" sounds nice...
* Indigo looks out, thinking of the amounts of raw material needed for rebuilding.
I just want to settle down...
Maybe have a family..
* Baine blinks
Maybe it'll happen..
* Chamolo whistles
That sounds oddly unlike me :p
* Lara looks around the once proud city of Granseal. "DarkSol will pay for this..mark
* Baine grins and runs a hand through her hair..
* Baine grins. "Sooo....are we there yet? Huh huh huh?"
Perhaps the city can be rebuilt with magic and technology.
maybe, Indigo. I sure hope so.
* Baine sing-songs. "Moooooooom.......Chamolo is touching meeeee!"
* The king, followed by Jeyer, Nalya and the arch Bishop, enter the halls of the castle
and head to the conference room...
* Lara follows the king...
* BlackHawk follows Lara.
* Baine coughs. "I blame the feast at the turtle place....too much sugar?"
* The arch Bishop twitches slightly...
* Chamolo moans O_o
Meep? Kiwi no have sugar...
* Baine whistles innocently :p
Hmmm? Sir Arch Bishop..is something wrong?
* Chamolo sweats O_o
* Indigo gives Kiwi a sugar packet. ^_^
* Kodah sweats a bit ^^:;
* The arch Bishop shakes his head promptly and walks faster.
* Darton drools on the floor like a dog. :P
* Kiwi eats it! Kiwi's hyperness gets doubled! Kiwi wakes up!
Oh may Mitula help me....
* Chamolo prays O_o
Something's up with him. You may want to keep an eye on the Arch bishop.
*whispers to Cham* You make it sound like our relationship is a bad thing,
* Indigo thinks.
Um...it's not to me..
* Kiwi bounces around.
But to my father...
Maybe the power of DarkSol makes him afraid.
* Baine eyes Chamolo ^_-
I think it's more than that, Indi. Just keep your eyes open.
Lara, it's because he disapproves of my girlfriend -_-
* Baine coughs :p
Well...gee...now I'm offended. :p
* Chamolo hugs Baine.
* Kiwi races around in circles around Indigo!
* Baine returns the hug and mutters :p
* The King sits at the head of the large table... The arch Bishop and Vankarin at his
* Darton gets tired while watching Kiwi... too much energy.
* Indigo just keeps feeding Kiwi sugar cubes and packets. ^_^
he's gonna explode O_o
* Lara sits across from the King. BlackHawk stands behind her.
* Baine looks at the King :p
* Jeyer and Nalya sit side by side...
* Indigo sits down, scattering sugar and then finds a molasses packet.
* Baine sits down and notices how comfy this chair is :p
* Kodah sits down and tires not to look too unnerved by all this
* Chamolo sits down politely.
* Chamolo still sweats, though ^^;
* Darton sits down on the floor.
* The king awaits for the Shining Force to take their places...
* Baine raises an eyebrow at Chamolo, sensing his nervousness :p
* Kiwi swallows every cube of sugar thrown his way...
* Kodah wonders if he's sitting in someone else's chair o_O
Shining Force, take your positions.
We have. :p
. o O (Wonder if it's a male thing... :P)
* Kiwi stays still but twitches from hyperness.
* Indigo holds out her hands for Kiwi to jump up.
* Kiwi jumps in Indy's arms!
* The king clears his throat...
Sorry, your highness. Our comerade Kiwi got a bit too close to some sugar...
As you may have known, since we've come back to New Granseal, the island of
Grans has been covered with monsters...
* Chamolo nods.
* The King ignores Kiwi :P
* Lara nods..
* Baine listens to the king, her good mood still there but disappearing a bit :p
* Darton flops down on the floor and snores. Loudly.
We have sent ships up towards the island to appraise their strength...
* Baine kicks Darton in the ribs. :p
* Lara crosses her hands in front of her face in an Ikari Gendou-esque fashion.
* Darton wakes up and bites Baine's leg
A-*clamps a hand over her mouth and squeaks instead of yelling*
* Darton chews
We have learned that they have many arch demons... And their army takes up half
of the Granseal penninsula...
* Baine winces :p
* Kodah hides his face and mutters, "I'm not here...I'm not here..."
* Baine motions to Darton, looking at Chamolo :p
Then, how are we going to get to Zeon...
But that's no problem your majesty. With powers like Chamolo's resting in your
archbishop, the archdemons should fall.
* Darton abruptly gives up and goes back to sleep.
You go through the arch demons, Lara. the only way to do it.
* Vankarin gets up... "We have found a way to get inside Grans Island with the help of
* Baine looks at her rather drooly foot :p
* Baine dribbles blood on the floor :p
* Indigo pats Kiwi's head. :P
As you know... I'm not who I said I was... I am supposed to lead the Shining
Force to Grans tower then the time is right...
* Kiwi abruptly stops twiching and gets a sugar low so bad that he snores in Indy's
* Chamolo heals Baine's leg under the table and barely kicks Darton in the snout ^^;
Since I can teleport, I can open a gate to the inside of the tower...
* Darton catches Cham boy's leg in his teeth, giving him much the same treatment
* Baine suddenly gets mental pictures of Chamolo moving his hand up her thigh...and
blushes beet red... :p
* Chamolo tries not to yell, instead me meeps O-o
* Vankarin gets annoyed and fries Darton with a fireball spell
* Darton yelps
* Darton goes after Vankarin, blood in his eyes
* Indigo laughs.
...Sit down, Darton.
* The King and the arch bishop stay serious, although seemingly holding back a
you do realize that your leaving will also leave a hole in Granseal's
You are making a fool of yourself.
* Vankarin casts a paralysis spell on Darton...
* Darton falls down
Good puppy wuppy :p
* Indigo shakes her head.
* Baine returns to being serious :P
* Darton mutters something unintelligible cause he can't move his mouth to
articulate... but the tone is certainly clear.
Majesty of Granseal, I can have knights coming from Guardiana in a matter
of hours, with your permission, I would like to offer my kingdom's assistance.
* Vankarin looks at BlackHawk... "After the Shining Force is at Grans island, the
monsters will not attack again... And we will set sail to Grans island when we believe
it is save...
. o O (Did he just say "Go fuck yourself"?)
. o O (Nah... More like, "Go fuck a duck.")
So now it's time for DarkSol. Since we've grown though, a prophecy that I made
in my insanity holds true......we of the Light will triumph over the Darkness.
* Indigo looks at them all.
* Baine entertains fantasies of Chamolo while attempting to listen :p
We do not need more troops... The biggest part of the army was destroyed
outside with the destruction of Evil Indigo...
I believe you're right, Indi.
* Vankarin uses telepathy to talk to Baine. ~Behave, Ninja...~
* Baine makes a loud squeak and falls out of her chair!
* The King bursts out laughing!
Then this is it...
* Baine sits back in her chair and blushes alot :p
* The arch Bishop elbows the king and he silences himself...
* Darton twitches slightly on the floor
* Indigo represses a giggle.
AS I WAS SAYING!
* Lara stands up. "Shining Force, ready your gear. We'll move out within the hour, got
* Baine blinks :p
as soon as Vankarin finishes speaking that is.
The spell will be ready to cast after a few slight preperations... For now,
rest and replenish your supplies... Take whatever you need...
Thank you, Vankarin.
* Kiwi wakes up, looking groggy... "Meeeeeeep?"
* Vankarin nods as the king gets up, nods to the Shining Force and heads to his room...
Thanks, Vankarin. Take care of yourself, Lara.
You do the same, Prince BlackHawk. I'll be fine. I have a good team at my side
* Jeyer gets up, Nalya blushing as he blows her a small kiss
We replenish our supplies and get ready to move out.
* Baine chuckles
I believe Chamolo wants to talk to his father first, Lara..
* Jeyer turns to the Shining Force... "I'd love to go with you... But I am needed here..."
* Baine nods to Jeyer. ^_^
I am too. I'll stay behind when you all move out.
* Darton continues twitching on the floor, making growly noises
* Kiwi wanders away, trying to wake up...
* Lara starts out to replenish supplies...
* The Arch Bishop walks up to Chamolo, grabs his elbow and whispers in his ear, "I have
to talk to you, Chamolo. Come to my quarters... And bring the girl."
* Kodah stands up, wondering where the supplies are
Oh ^^; Um...yes Father...ahem.
* The arch Bishop walks off to his quarters.
* Baine stretches and yawns. ^_^
* Kodah wanders around the camp until he finds the supply depot
Baine....my dad wants to meet you ^^;
* Baine raises an eyebrow at Cham
* Indigo wanders around the city, then rests.
Awesome. Think he'll wanna see my scars?
* Baine grins
===== Cut Scene! =====
Darksol is sitting on the old throne of Granseal's king... Looking down at
Dorak who is giving him a report of the situation...
The Shining Force advanced in New Granseal and exterminated our troups...
What of the sorceress?
Reports say she is nowhere to be seen... She has... Vanished.
* Darksol curses.
On the bright side, I have learned that Max will use the teleportation spell...
We shall be able to ambush them easily if we can pinpoint the spell's destination in
* Darksol grins wickedly... Good... Work at it... Report to me as soon as you have an
* Dorak teleports out...
===== End cut scene! =====
Chamolo and Baine head to the Arch Bishop's quarters to answer the
* Chamolo sweats O_o;
Here goes nothing.
* Baine doesn't look nervous....and has her mask off. :p
* Baine squeezes Cham's shoulder gently and knocks on the door
* Chamolo knocks
Shhh. Calm down, Cham.. :)
* The Arch Bishop's voice comes from behind the door saying, "Enter."
* Chamolo opens the door.
* Baine follows Cham into the room...
You called for me?
Yes... Come in, Chamolo.
* Chamolo comes in, looking nervous.
* Baine waits by Cham's side, smiling softly.
* The Bishop doesn't look at them come in and continues to scribe a scroll...
I've heard you were denied your priesthood, Chamolo... I was sent report of it
before the siege.
Oh...but it was a case of mistaken identity, father.
* Chamolo explains the whole situation as best as he can ^^;
* Baine is silent, waiting till she's spoken to or referred to.
* The Bishop turns to Chamolo and listens to his story...
Ah... As I thought.
* Chamolo smiles.
And it was at this time that you decided to pursue a romantic affair with this
* Baine blinks.
Yes. I won't lie to you. It just happened.
But I don't regret what I have done. I love her.
If it means never getting back in the church, I accept this.
* Baine blushes lightly and smiles a bit more.
* The Bishop looks at Chamolo, not knowing what to say.
I hope you can understand how I feel..
* Chamolo coughs nervously.
Well now... I guess that I can't change your mind on the matter.
* The Bishop turns to Baine...
Baine... Do you really love Chamolo also?
* Baine nods. "I love Chamolo. Of that there is no doubt."
* Chamolo smiles and blushes. ^^;
* Baine sounds very intelligent and truthful for once. ^_^
* The Bishop sighs... "All I ask of you is this: Come back alive... Both of you."
* Baine nods and smiles.
I too, have experienced love once before I joined priesthood... I couldn't
bear to... Lose her.
* The Bishop shakes his head to dismiss the thoughts.
That is all. You may leave.
* Baine blinks. "Thank you, sir."
Thank you, father.
* Chamolo quietly leaves the room.
* Baine follows Chamolo..
* The Bishop nods to Chamolo and Baine and returns to scribing.
* Chamolo phews.
* Baine grins at Chamolo. "That wasn't so bad."
* Chamolo smiles and kisses her ^_^
* Baine kisses back. ^_^
===== Cut scene! =====
Jeyer and Nalya walk to meet Vankarin, seeing how his preperations for the
spells are going...
Vankarin? Will you really be able to cast the spell yourself?
* Vankarin continues to carve runes in preperation, not turning to address him... "I
will be able to do it.... But with cost."
* Jeyer shakes his head... "I thought so. Nalya and I can help you channel the energy,
* Vankarin utters a cold response, "No."
* Jeyer blinks, "Why not?? Why shouldn't we help you?!"
* Nalya frowns, pulling Jeyer back.. "I know why, Jeyer.."
* Jeyer blinks and stares into Nalya's eyes, as though showing him her thoughts..
* Jeyer winces and turns to Vankarin.. "I... I'm sorry.."
* Vankarin snickers, "I shall be better off after this, Jeyer. Do not worry for me."
* Jeyer nods slowly and Nalya pulls him away to let Vankarin finish his work..
===== End cut scene! =====
The Shining Force is summoned to the castle, as the spell is ready to
* Lara answers the summons.
* Kodah trips on a floor rug o_O
* Indigo walks in, rested and refreshed.
* Baine blinks. "That was rather sudden." and seperates herself from Chamolo :p
* Darton is still twitching on the floor. :p
* Chamolo answers the summons.
* Kodah scrambles to untangle himself from the rug without looking like a fool ^^;;
* BlackHawk stands back in the shadows, watching as Lara prepares to leave for the
* Kodah gets loose from the floor rug and tries to regain his composure ^^;;
* Baine wonders why she was summoned and then remembers, :p
The Shining Force is led to the casting chamber where Vankarin is making the
* Indigo quickly copies down the runes she sees in her spellbook.
* Vankarin finishes the preperations and exits the rune circle...
* Baine waits, eyes narrowed and mask up. ^_^
* Kodah looks at the circle
I'll teleport you right inside the gates of the tower... You'll have to
fight your way up the tower...
* Darton stumbles in late and somewhat charred
* Baine nods.
* Kiwi blinks.
* BlackHawk watches.
* Indigo nods and finishes copying the runes and spell down.
* Vankarin nods and starts gathering energy...
No one said this would be a pleasure cruise..
* Baine draws AmeShi and waits...
* Chamolo pulls out his staff.
* Lara draws the force sword from it's new sheath.
* Kodah notices people going for thier weapons and fumbles for his sword
* Indigo pulls her staff forth and holds the powers of all eight elementals at the
The energy seeps through Vankarin and glides across the runes, activating
them one by one...
oooh... pretty lights...
Hey...did I mention it was nice knowing you all? :p
* Lara stands ready for teleport.
* Chamolo waits.
An opaque field of light appears over the runes and interconnects, starting
to flow in a circular motion...
* Indigo looks at the light, her own rainbow light glowing around her.
* Vankarin walks to the center of the runes...
* Kodah holds the Star Sword at the ready
The energy spins around faster and faster... Slowly coming to its climax...
the light forms a large cylindral shape around Vankarin and bursts on him!
Only the portal remains...
* Lara steps through the portal.
* Jeyer and Nalya walk in, watching the Shining Force depart...
. o O ( Stupid guy shouldn't have wasted his energy on me... )
* Jeyer says, "Good luck..." In a low tone...
* Darton hops through
* BlackHawk is standing in the shadows, watching the Shining Force Depart.
* Kodah turns and waves to Nalya, before going into the portal
* Baine mutters a warrior's prayer for Vankarin and then steps through the
portal...."Jeyer! You owe me a poker ga--.. *ploit*
* Kiwi scuttles through...
* The Arch Bishop walks in as Chamolo is about to enter...
* Indigo steps through, her staff before her.
* Chamolo is about to walk in.
* The Bishop looks at Chamolo... "Good luck, my son..."
Thank you father. I'll make you proud of me...
May Mitula be with you always.
* Chamolo smiles.
* Chamolo waves good bye to his father and steps inside the portal.
* The Bishop nods and looks at his son depart...
The portal makes the Shining force appear in a small room, completely sealed
but for one exit and extremely hot...
* Indigo wipes her forehead.
Woah....talk about your warm receptions..
* Chamolo whews. "Warm."
* Lara ties her headband back around her forehead.
As Chamolo steps through the portal, the final energy dissipates and the
portal wavers out of existance.
* Baine keeps AmeShi drawn, looking around.
No going home I suppose o_o;;
To the exit, people?
* Darton yawns, unbothered cause he has cold magic and fixed it so he's not hot
Yes I suppose. We've come this far, I suppose our only threat now is DarkSol
as any others are gone.
* Baine heads for the exit..
* Indigo heads towards the door.
* Chamolo follows Baine, wiping his brow
* Kodah follows the group, looking around warily
* Lara follows Baine....keeping her senses honed.
* Darton follows everyone else :P
I wonder if the coward will dare face all of us.
* Kiwi follows Darton. =p
The small room opens up to a crystal filled room... The floors are covered
in crystal plates and laval bubbles and boils at the bottom of the pit!
* Baine blinks
No wonder it's so hot..
I don't like this ^^:;
* Indigo walks along the crystal.
* Darton steps out onto the crystal plates, making his way across
* Kiwi spits into the lava to see how sizzling it is...
* Lara makes her way across.
* Baine stealthly makes her way across..
The air is thick and dry, the oxygen being quite thin...
* Baine pants.. "Ugh....this sucks..."
* Chamolo makes his way across, gasping for air.
* Kodah watches, not moving across just yet o_o;;
* Indigo coughs.
tell me about it, Kara.
Some of the plates fall as the team passes by!
Yipes..make a run for it.
* Chamolo runs! O_o
* Lara picks up her pace.
* Indigo gulps and keeps going.
* Kodah walks carefully after the others ^^;;
* Darton doesn't seem in a hurry
* Baine walks a bit faster, keeping an eye on Kodah :p
The plates seem to be getting slippery...
* Indigo would summon Neptune, but is afraid to stop.
* Chamolo barely keeps his footing
I really don't like this ^^;;
* Baine pants, and tries to see clearly.
The plate just behind Baine falls!
* Kodah walks very carefully along the tiles ^^;;
* Baine blinks and stumbles a bit O_o
* Kiwi meeps panickedly and runs as quick as he can!
* Lara runs at her top speed.
* Indigo takes off.
Baine! Keep running! Don't stop!
* Baine steadies herself and runs ^_^;
* Kodah runs for the other side....if there is one ^^;;
* Darton yawns and walks unhurried
The other exit is close at hand!

* Darton hops lightly off and to the next, then continues walking
* Baine pants really hard.... "Daaaamnit..."
* Indigo stops.
* Chamolo is running out of air, getting light headed.
* Indigo keeps running.
* Crest slips and almost falls, but regains his balance and continues to run!
This....the heat....head hurts..
Baine reaches the exit unscathed!
Lara arrives soon after...
* Baine collapses at the exit, panting :p
* Lara skids to a halt.
* Kiwi runs into Lara...
Chamolo arrives safely!
* Chamolo falls to his knees and pants.
Kiwi and Darton make it to the other side...
'bout time....priest boy...
* Baine slowly regains her composure and stands, eyeing Kodah's running form. :p
it wasn't supposed to be. We're fighting for the entire world here, Chamolo.
* Crest slips again and lacthes himself onto a plate, holding on for dear life!
* Darton seems calm and serene for a change as he steps onto solid ground
Crest! Climb up!!
* Indigo runs back for him.
* Lara runs over and tries to haul crest to the surface.
Indigo! Lara! Argh. :p
* Indigo thrusts her staff at him.
Grab on! Neptune, elemental of water, cool the lava!
The plate holding Lara and Crest up starts to crack!
* Baine looks tense, ready to leap out and grab someone.
* Darton looks on, almost bored
* Chamolo watches.
* Lara tries her best to bring Crest back to the land.
