"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... <Indigo> 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.

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. <Chamolo> This is going to be difficult ^^; <Baine> Difficult? ^_- * The king looks at BlackHawk and nods in recognition... <Lara> 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 <Baine> Hah, Lara! I was born ready! <Chamolo> I am. * 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 <BlackHawk> Take care of yourself, Lara... <King> Come... We shall tend to your wounds and replenish your supplies... <Indigo> Well, I suppose it is time for my training to pay off. <Chamolo> Maybe I can see my sister before going off into the unknown. <Baine> Sister? Heh.. <Lara> Yes, Majesty. * Baine grins idly and taps her chin, thinking.. * Lara follows the king. BH does the same. * Kodah folows, what else is there to do? <Baine> 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 battle field... <Kodah> o.o <Baine> 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. ^_^ <Kodah> How am I supposed to act around royalty? o_o <Lara> what a mess....How long has Granseal been under siege? * Indigo walks after them, looking around. * Baine is extremely cheery ^_^ <Baine> Gods...what a beautiful day! <Erin> Mostly just quiet and courteous. ^_^ Never speak unless spoken too... * Chamolo smiles at Baine and hugs her arm. <Kodah> Oh * 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. <Lara> 8 high are the casualties? <Baine> Wonder what your parents will think of me...heheheheh... ^_^; <Vankarin> We lost half our troops... But managed to take out the most powerful monsters... <Chamolo> ^^; Actually, it's just my father. <Baine> Father....and sister... still a tough crowd. ^_- <Chamolo> My real parents died when I was a newborn. <Narrator> The gates are opened and the people walk back in, heading towards the castle... <Indigo> So all that's left is Dark Dragon and Zeon, because my opposite is gone. * Indigo points to her heart. <BlackHawk> Vankarin, if it means anything, I'll stay here and help you defend Granseal while the Shining Force is fighting. <Indigo> In here. <Baine> Mine were squished by a giant horse thing, Cham.. :p <Baine> Uhm....minotaur.. :p <Chamolo> Oh :/ <Baine> 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 <Lara> 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..... <Indigo> I...killed my parents. * Kiwi meeps sadly... * Lara holds onto the charm on her pendant. "may it bring us luck." <Baine> Cham... *grins sympathetically* you've got me now....and your foster father and foster sister.... <Narrator> 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 ^_^ <Lara> such destruction. Granseal is going to need a lot of rebuilding. <Chamolo> ^_^ <BlackHawk> No joke, Lara...and maybe Guardiana can help when this fight's all over. * Kodah looks around glumly at the destruction o_o <Baine> Mmmmhmmm......gods..."all over" sounds nice... * Indigo looks out, thinking of the amounts of raw material needed for rebuilding. <Baine> I just want to settle down... <Baine> Maybe have a family.. * Baine blinks <Chamolo> Maybe it'll happen.. * Chamolo whistles <Baine> That sounds oddly unlike me :p * Lara looks around the once proud city of Granseal. "DarkSol will pay for this..mark my words." * Baine grins and runs a hand through her hair.. * Baine grins. "Sooo....are we there yet? Huh huh huh?" <Indigo> Perhaps the city can be rebuilt with magic and technology. <Lara> 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... <Chamolo> O_o <Kodah> o_O <Chamolo> Baine! * Lara follows the king... * BlackHawk follows Lara. * Baine coughs.

Kiwi's hyperness gets doubled! Kiwi wakes up! <Chamolo> Oh may Mitula help me.... * Chamolo prays O_o <BlackHawk> Something's up with him. You may want to keep an eye on the Arch bishop. <Lara> OK. <Baine> *whispers to Cham* You make it sound like our relationship is a bad thing, Cham.. ^_- * Indigo thinks. <Chamolo>'s not to me.. * Kiwi bounces around. <Chamolo> But to my father... <Chamolo> Well.... <Indigo> Maybe the power of DarkSol makes him afraid. <Chamolo> Erhm.. * Baine eyes Chamolo ^_- <Kodah> .... <Lara> I think it's more than that, Indi. Just keep your eyes open. <Chamolo> Lara, it's because he disapproves of my girlfriend -_- * Baine coughs :p <Baine> 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 sides... * Darton gets tired while watching Kiwi... too much energy. <Kodah> ^^;; * Indigo just keeps feeding Kiwi sugar cubes and packets. ^_^ <Chamolo> Indigo... <Chamolo> he's gonna explode O_o * Lara sits across from the King.

Our comerade Kiwi got a bit too close to some sugar... <Kiwi> As you may have known, since we've come back to New Granseal, the island of Grans has been covered with monsters... <Kodah> ^^;; * Chamolo nods. * The King ignores Kiwi :P * Lara nods.. <Kiwi> ^_^; * Baine listens to the king, her good mood still there but disappearing a bit :p * Darton flops down on the floor and snores. Loudly. <King> 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 <Baine> A-*clamps a hand over her mouth and squeaks instead of yelling* * Darton chews <King> We have learned that they have many arch demons... And their army takes up half of the Granseal penninsula... * Baine winces :p <Chamolo> Baine? * Kodah hides his face and mutters, "I'm not here...I'm not here..." * Baine motions to Darton, looking at Chamolo :p <Lara> Then, how are we going to get to Zeon... <Indigo> 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. <BlackHawk> 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 my powers..." * Baine looks at her rather drooly foot :p <Chamolo> Really? * Baine dribbles blood on the floor :p * Indigo pats Kiwi's head. :P <Vankarin> 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 arms. * Chamolo heals Baine's leg under the table and barely kicks Darton in the snout ^^; <Vankarin> Since I can teleport, I can open a gate to the inside of the tower... <Lara> Excellent. * 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 <Kodah> ^^;; * Vankarin gets annoyed and fries Darton with a fireball spell * Darton yelps <Kodah> o_O * Darton goes after Vankarin, blood in his eyes <Baine> Egh.. :p * Indigo laughs. <Kodah> O_O <Chamolo> ...Sit down, Darton. * The King and the arch bishop stay serious, although seemingly holding back a chuckle... <BlackHawk> you do realize that your leaving will also leave a hole in Granseal's defenses.. <Chamolo> You are making a fool of yourself. * Vankarin casts a paralysis spell on Darton... * Darton falls down <Baine> 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. <BlackHawk> 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... <Chamolo> . o O (Did he just say "Go fuck yourself"?) <Narrator> . o O (Nah... More like, "Go fuck a duck.") <Indigo> 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 <Vankarin> We do not need more troops... The biggest part of the army was destroyed outside with the destruction of Evil Indigo... <Kodah> ^^;; <Lara> 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! <Baine> Huh?! <Baine> :P <Baine> Oh....uhm...errr... * The King bursts out laughing! <Baine> Sorry. ^_^; <Lara> 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 <Kodah> ^^;; * Indigo represses a giggle. <Vankarin> AS I WAS SAYING! * Lara stands up. "Shining Force, ready your gear. We'll move out within the hour, got it?" <Kodah> We will? * Baine blinks :p <Lara> as soon as Vankarin finishes speaking that is. <Vankarin> The spell will be ready to cast after a few slight preperations... For now, rest and replenish your supplies... Take whatever you need... <Kodah> Oh <Lara> excellent... <Baine> 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... <Kiwi> -_- <BlackHawk> Thanks, Vankarin. Take care of yourself, Lara. <Kodah> what? <Indigo> Okay. <Lara> You do the same, Prince BlackHawk. I'll be fine. I have a good team at my side here. * Jeyer gets up, Nalya blushing as he blows her a small kiss <Lara> We replenish our supplies and get ready to move out. * Baine chuckles <Kodah> Um...okay <Baine> 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. ^_^ <BlackHawk> 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 <Chamolo> Oh ^^; Um...yes Father...ahem. * The arch Bishop walks off to his quarters. * Baine stretches and yawns. ^_^ <Chamolo> Um.. * Kodah wanders around the camp until he finds the supply depot <Chamolo> dad wants to meet you ^^; * Baine raises an eyebrow at Cham * Indigo wanders around the city, then rests. <Baine> Awesome. Think he'll wanna see my scars? * Baine grins <Chamolo> O_o <Narrator> ===== Cut Scene! ===== <Baine> I'm joking! <Narrator> Darksol is sitting on the old throne of Granseal's king... Looking down at Dorak who is giving him a report of the situation... <Dorak> The Shining Force advanced in New Granseal and exterminated our troups... <Darksol> What of the sorceress? <Dorak> Reports say she is nowhere to be seen... She has... Vanished. * Darksol curses. <Dorak> 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 the tower... * Darksol grins wickedly... Good... Work at it... Report to me as soon as you have an answer! <Dorak> Yes, master. * Dorak teleports out... <Narrator> ===== End cut scene! ===== <Narrator> Chamolo and Baine head to the Arch Bishop's quarters to answer the summons... * Chamolo sweats O_o; <Chamolo> 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 <Chamolo> Ah-! ^^: <Baine> 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... <Chamolo> You called for me? <Bishop> 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... <Bishop> I've heard you were denied your priesthood, Chamolo... I was sent report of it before the siege. <Chamolo> 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... <Bishop> Ah... As I thought. * Chamolo smiles. <Bishop> And it was at this time that you decided to pursue a romantic affair with this woman? * Baine blinks. <Chamolo> Um...well... <Chamolo> Yes. I won't lie to you. It just happened. <Chamolo> But I don't regret what I have done. I love her. <Chamolo> 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. <Chamolo> I hope you can understand how I feel.. * Chamolo coughs nervously. <Bishop> Well now... I guess that I can't change your mind on the matter. * The Bishop turns to Baine... <Bishop> 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." <Chamolo> We will. * Baine nods and smiles. <Bishop> 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. <Bishop> That is all. You may leave. * Baine blinks. "Thank you, sir." <Chamolo> 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.

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, you know.." * 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.. <Narrator> ===== End cut scene! ===== <Narrator> The Shining Force is summoned to the castle, as the spell is ready to cast... * Lara answers the summons. * Kodah trips on a floor rug o_O * Indigo walks in, rested and refreshed. * Baine blinks.
