Shining Force RPG 2 session 13
===== SESSION START =====
The Shining Force heads out towards the swamplands, which can be apparent
as the team moves along... The odor of rotting wood and plants fill the air...
* Tiernan scrunches his nose as he walks.
* Kodah plods along, thinking to himself
* Jess holds her nose. "Man what a stench."
Why am I still with these people...?
* Dal pinches his nose, frowning at the smell...
* Reisha does likewise. "Geez.. this place reeks.." :/
* David glances around, his eyes slightly dark..
* Tiernan blinks
* Indigo appears from nowhere.
As in smells really bad..
* Sasha groans at the smell
* Indigo blinks at the smell.
* Tiernan tries to avoid Sasha's gaze, still thinking she hates him :/
* Kodah looks at Indigo for a moment, but then turns away
Insects buzz by in mass quantities... Some attempting to feed at a few of
Why am I doing this? I wouldn't even do this even if I got paid!
So....where are we now?
* Indigo waves her staff at the insects.
* Zoie pulls her hood up
* Reisha swats them away.. "Just why were we here again?" ^^
* Dal walks next to Tyr and whispers, "Don't worry, it's not you. ^^;"
* Jess causes a aura of fire to surround herself, keeping the bugs away.
* Tiernan winces and looks at his hand, where a misquito is feeding on it.
* Tiernan flails his hand about O_o
* Dal smacks the mosquito off Tyr's hand.
* Kodah shows Tyr the proper way to swat at mosquitos
Ah---! Oh...thank you. ^_^
* Tiernan swats...a lot :P
* David looks around.. "So..."
* Indigo looks around.
So why're we here again?
* Jess walks on through the swamplands. "This place really stinks."
So we're in a swamp? The last thing I remember was a town and a burning
tent...oh, and David got sick, then I had to go somewhere.
We're here because that jerk Gerad dropped a map pointing to this place
I'm now wondering if Gerad was mentally unstable.
Did I hear the word jerk? Erm... Nevermind.
Yeah but why in this forsaken place?
The person who tried to hurt Kodah...
But we stopped him! ^_^
* Reisha smiles. "Yeah, boy did we ever.." :P
We did okay.
* Reisha swats a few mosquitoes...
He'll be back though....he always comes back...
Maybe there's a cave or soemthing to get away from these damn bugs...
* Indigo looks about...
Good idea, Reisha..
Ummm...the Faerie Queen or her minions aren't still about, are they? I
remember that fight...
I don't think so...
* Kodah doesn't seem to be getting bothered by mosquitos
* Reisha scopes out the swamp for any caves as they travels through the muck.
* Jess continues to trudge along, thinking to herself about this trip.
* Tiernan begins to look tired, and swats in several more places.
* Indigo walks through the swamp unconcernedly.
* David gently swats one off Rei's shoulder
Sasha dear, come here!
Do...do you think Sasha hates me...?
* Reisha winks. "Thanks Davey... now if you could get the other million.." ;)
I doubt it
* David grins slightly.. "Sure....where are those?"
Really? She hasn't talked to me in a long time :/
Why don't you try and talk to her?
Really....Talk to her...?
Yeah, you dork. :P
* Indigo goes to Sasha and begins to brush her hair.
Who keeps talking to me? ;_;
If you want to know how she feels about you, then that's the best way to find
* Sasha snaps at Indigo
You really need to take better care of yourself dear. ^_^
Back off! I'm NOT in a nice mood =(
What's it this time Sasha? Feeling gold deprived again? ^^
* Tiernan stops a moment and is near Sasha...
hehehe....Indi and Sasha remind me of my mother and me at times...though
sometimes we're not on the best of terms at times.
I'm your mother and I've seen you in foul moods. Remember, I had to change
your diapers remember?
* Indigo goes back to brushing, filled with a mother's calm.
* Reisha laughs to David. "If I knew, I'd tell you.." ;)
* Tiernan looks very flustered...
* David blushes and coughs, looking at his feet suddenly
* Kodah trudges along, lost in his own thoughts again
* Sasha grumbles
* Jess walks along silently with her memories.
* Sasha throws her hands in the air
Forget you all!
* Sasha storms off in the oppisite direction
* Tiernan blinks
* Indigo goes after her, continuing to brush her hair.
* Reisha looks at Sasha. "Hey.. if you get eaten alive by the bugs don't blame us.."
I think you got your temper from your father.
* David looks oddly at Indigo and Sasha..
* Tiernan hangs his head down.
Uh....hello? We need to follow the map!
* David whistles to Sasha and Indigo
* Sasha baps her mother "Will you quit following me?"
Oh yeah.. the map.. just where are we heading anyway?
A rather large millipede crawls by Reisha's leg...
* Sasha starts moving at an even faster pace.
* Jess puts her hand on Tyr's shoulder. "I think she's just in one of her foul moods,
Tyr. She'll calm down sooner or later."
* Reisha looks over David's shoulder, and suddenly shivers..
* Indigo grabs her arm and brings her back. ^_^
* Tiernan looks at Jess, something wet now on his face.
* Reisha looks down and Eeks! o_O
Come on dear, we'll talk. ^_^
* David blinks and looks at Rei and then at the millipede
* Jess gives Tyr a reassuring smile.
* Reisha composes herself...
Let's just get out.. of.. here..
* David raises an eyebrow and kicks the millipede away
* Sasha runs away from Indigo "Lemme alone!"
* Tiernan wipes the wetness away and follows the others...although some of it still
falls down his cheeks
* Dal sighs and trudges along.
I'll be along shortly everyone.
.oO(Somehow, I know how Sasha feels. I always did resent my parents for
spending too much time with their work than me.)
The millipede makes an eeping sound and crawls up David's pants
* Kodah keeps moving at a steady pace
* Jess shakes her head and walks on.
* Indigo steps forward and fades, reappearing right in front of Sasha.
* David makes a loud erking noise and freezes. ^^;
* Reisha watches the millipede go up David's pant leg, wanting to laugh. "Are you some
kind of critter magnet?" ^^
Come along dearie, we can talk on the road. ^_^
* Reisha tries to bat it off...
* Sasha leaps up into the air and lands behind Indi, then leaps backward again and
continues leaping until she's FAR away from the group and Indi
The millipede crawls in David's pants
* Indigo just sighs and teleports to her again.
Sasha, what's wrong? Why won't you talk to me? We used to be so close.
* David twitches and calmly shakes slightly to try and get the millipede out.
Quit following me!
* Sasha storms away from Indigo
* Indigo teleports to her again.
The millipede latches on hard.
* Reisha gets a devious look on ehr face and tries shocking David's leg.
You're my daughter and I'll keep following you until you calm down and talk
* Tiernan is quiet now, and just looks down at the soggy ground, his wings wrapped
around his body
== David gets shocked. He takes 1 damage.
* David glares at Rei ;P
Hey.. got any better ideas how to get a hungry millipede off? :P
* Jess pays no attention to what's going on around her...too caught up in her
* Reisha glares back at David, with some mischief in her eyes..
Sure. If I was alone I'd just take my flippin' pants off and shake the
millipede out.. ^^;
The millipede crawls up on David's chest...
* David reaches into his tunic and hauls the millipede out!
== The millipede bites David's hand. David takes 1 damage. David is
* Kodah waits for Sasha and Indi to make another circut around the group, "Indigo, may
I see you for a moment?"
* Reisha watches David, blinking..
* Tiernan looks up and walks off in the opposite direction...
* David throws the FLUFFING GOD DAMN MILLIPEDE AT THE GM!
* Indigo looks at Kodah.
* Indigo glows brown.
* Narrator blocks and lets the millipede go back to its swampland...
Dao, Elemental of the Earth, restrain my daughter until we can talk!
* David looks sickly because of the poison. "Ow....stupid bug.."
* Reisha looks at david's hand muttering about stupid bugs..
That was some attitude that bug had.. you alright?
Sure....I feel a little sick...but I'm fine.. ^^;
Indigo, does the phrase, 'over-enhanced-maternal-instinct' mean anything to
What are you talking about Kodah?
* Reisha tries looking at the map again...
Anyway...uh...lets check out the map.. ^^;
* Dal sighs. ^^;
Can't you see that you're smothering your daughter with too much attention?
* David looks at the map from over Rei's shoulder ^_-
The map depicts the present location, true south being the next
Tyr is nowhere in sight.
I'm her mother!
you're also not letting her grow up on her own, Indi.
I have to protect and raise my baby girl, especially with her father gone.
Hmm.. well it looks like we're going south.. wherever that leads..
You may not have noticed...but your BABY is a bit on the young-adult side
She used to be such a good girl, then her father died, and she ran away.....
* Indigo cries.
Yeah...we need the group to get together now..
* Reisha looks up..
Hey.. where's that TYr..?
Did you ever stop to think WHY your daughter ran away?
M...maybe she inherited my insanity, maybe she had a split personality the
better yet, Where's Darin? Anybody see him?
Maybe you should ask her
Lovely...okay....we need to get the group focused and together..
If they landed in some huge spider web, I think I'm going to get sick..
Happy thoughts, Rei..
I raised her to be a good girl, to live with the curse as best as she can,
the way I and all of her ancestresses before her have had to live. I...I don't want
her to be unprepared when the curse takes effect...
* Jess looks around....
* Indigo is sitting under a tree, sobbing.
Come on people! We have a map to follow!
Did you ever stop to think that maybe you overdid it?
* David sighs and looks around. ^^;
* Reisha calls out a few times. "Hey Tiernan....Darin... you out there..?"
No. From what I remember of my mother, before I stabbed her to death, she
raised me the same way, and so did Father.
* David feels sicker and mutters.. "Lovely...damned millipede poisoned me...."
And so you;re going to raise Sasha the same way so she can stab you too?
you really think that's wise, Indi?
* Kodah snaps his fingers, and summons a tiny succubus, who flies over to David. After
she bestows a quick kiss, David is restored.
* Reisha stops walking, surveying the swampy surroundings...
I was insane. I cut off Father's ummm....well, you known, bit by bit with a
steak knife before I stabbed him in the heart.
== David's poison is lifted.
* Reisha blinks as a tiny succubus kisses David... she looks a little jealous... ^^
* David blinks slightly and coughs, blushing.. "Uh...thanks, Kodah.."
Tiernan! You out there?
Sasha will be a sorceress some day, as I and every female of our line have
ever been. She has to be ready. I trained her, until she ran off. I don't know why.
Crest and I were good parents....
Have you ever asked Sasha how she feels about all you attention?
There is no answer.
What need is there to ask? I'm her mother.
* Indigo looks at Sasha.
I don't know.. Tyr's pretty vulnerable to wander of by himself..
Dao, don't hurt her, just hold her.
Have you ever considered the idea that maybe she resents all the attention?
How can she? She's my daughter.
* Indigo is still sobbing.
* Reisha raises a hand, and yells into the arguing mess. "Hey people!" :P
If you have to ask that then you have no busines BEING a mother
I...I need to take her away..to be examined.
By Mitula's tits.....
* Kodah stomps off, thouroughly disgusted
* Indigo looks at David.
Don't blaspheme David!
* Kodah heads back to the group
In case you didn't know, we're trying to stick together here..
Mmm.. Mitula's tits...
* David looks frustrated
She doesn't really like blasphemy you know. I've talked to her.
And now Tiernan's gone.
* Indigo looks about.
Dao? Where are you?
Anybody see where he went?
* Kodah's ears perk up, "Tyr's missing?"
* Reisha folds her arms commandingly.
* Kodah starts looking around for Tyr
* Indigo goes to Sasha and looks closely at her.
Tyr! Where are you?!
TIERRRRRRRNAN! Where the heck are you?!
A score of spiders scuttle south west...
There is no answer still.
TYR! TIERNAN! HEY, TIERNAN!
* Indigo hugs her.
* Indigo looks up.
* Reisha notices the spiders out of the corner of her eye..
Hey nice guy! Where are you?
Hey Tyr! This isn;t a good place to wander off on your oen you know
* Reisha takes a couple of steps to the southwest, looking for where the spiders went.
"I have a bad hunch.."
let's follow the spiders.
uh...what if they're just spiders?
I'll stay here until Sasha talks again.
* Kodah heads after Reisha
* Indigo points to her daughter.
* Sasha walks off.... looking for Tyr, and ignoring everyone.
Dao will hold her here, so don't worry about her running off.
* Indigo sighs.
You do that Indy.. and get us some bug spray while you're at it...
* Indigo glows brown.
* Reisha heads after the spiders..
Dao, Elemental of the Earth, hold my daughter!
Tyyyr! Where are you?!
* David follows Rei..
* Sasha continues walking looking for Tyr.
Hey Tiernan, where the hell are ya?
* Indigo sighs and follows.
More spiders head south...
Tiernan! Come on, we're your friends, remember? The Shining Force!
Hmm.. they're heading south..
* David struggles through the swamp.. "Uh...so....Rei....come here often?"
Let's knock down the scenery! That'll get his attention.
* Indigo glows blue.
Lets not and say we did O_o
* Reisha looks at david sacastically, "Oh yeah.. great picnic spot.." :P
Neptune, Elemental of Water, flood the swamps to help us find our friend!
* Jess looks around, and silently wonders to herself. "Where did they go to? Darin,
Tyr? This is getting way too weird."
Uh Indy.. o_O
== The summons goes unanswered...
Maybe this map ahs something to do with it.. they're going south..
* Indigo frowns.
* Reisha keeps moving.
What is with the Elementals today?
* Indigo assumes her stern lecture pose.
Indigo, if you try one more stupiud summon you're going to be sucking silt, understand?
* Jess looks around again for Darin. "Where is he anyway?"
I swear....we're going to need to get him like....a leash...or maybe duct tape
him to.....Indigo or Jess..
I'm going to have to have a serious talk with those Elementals....
* Reisha laughs... "Or maybe Sasha if we wanted to be devious.." ^^
hey, don't even think about that, David. These clothes are band new.
Dao never showed up to hold Sasha for our talk and now this....
I'll keep an eye on him. ^_^
* Reisha calls out Tyr's name a few more times, heading south still..
* Kodah keeps following the Spiders and keepign an eye out for Tyr
* Jess yells out for Darin or Tyr, silently wondering, "Where in the world are they?"
The spiders all do a sharp turn west, tons more heading in that
I'm telling you.. if they ended up where I think they did.. o_o;
* David hmms.... "Then we get industrial bug spray."
DARIN! TYR! WHERE ARE YOU?!
Hey Tyr! Enough with the hide-and-seek already!
* Reisha readies some lightning just incase..
* Jess conjures up a fireball. "Gotta be prepared."
* Reisha turns west after the spiders..
* Jess follows Rei.
The spiders head south east, their numbers so large, they spread out many
* David draws AmeShi and follows Rei carefully..
. o O (I hate spiders...)
* Dal follows everyone else. ^^;
This isn't good..
It could be worse. It could be snakes.
A small snake crawls up David's leg.
Gee.. thanks for the cheerful conversation Davey.. ^^
* David rips the snake off and beats it on a tree!
* Kodah keeps moving
The snake eeps and slithers away.
* Reisha tries her best to keep cool around the swarms of spiders..
Tyr, you better be here!
The spiders scatter suddenly... The area starting to light up... A small
grove can be seen up ahead...
* Kodah watches carefully
* Dal blinks.
* David tenses and readies AmeShi, heading for the grove..
* Reisha follows David, dropping behind him..
* Jess follows Rei, a few steps behind.
Three large spider webs can be spotted... A multitude of small spiders
crawl all over it...
* Reisha looks up...
Erk.....uh...Tiernan? You here, buddy?
The one on the right has Darin, who seems unconscious... The left one holds
I knew it!
* David stares and erghs, heading for the web with Tiernan in it..
* Jess conjures up a fireball. "I'll try to burn them down from there."
Spiders climb on David, covering him slowly...
Let's burn the webs and free those two... can you handle it Jess?
* Tiernan 's body is still, his face white and covered with spider webs.
you got it, rei.
* David rolls backward and swats the spiders away. "GETOFFGETOFFGETOFF"
* Darin doesn't move... his face deathly pale.
* Jess throws her fireball at the web holding Darin. MARS....FIRE.....IGNITE!
The spiders crawl away from David...
* Reisha rushes to David, and knock sthe spiders off with a few particles of thunder
in her fingers..
* Kodah moves to one side, looking for the right moment to make his move
* David stares and coughs, inching closer to Rei.. "Uh....thanks..."
Don't mention it..
The fireball propulses itself towards the spider web... Suddenly, a rather
large red spider falls down from the tree branches overhead and gets impacted by the
fireball... The fireball disperses....
Agh. Boss time.
* Reisha concentrates and hurls the stored electricity in a ring around Tiernan's
* David brings AmeShi to bear and grins almost joyfully...
* Jess begins her incantations...
* Reisha looks over her shoulder..
The bolt of lightning heads toward spider web... Again, a rather large
yellow spider leaps down and blocks the bolt, absorbing it...
Oh crud.. o_o
* David inches towards the yellow spider and slashes at it ^^;
The small spiders push David back, crawling all over his body...
and me without a weapon.....
* David leaps back
Another large spider, much larger than the two others lowers itself between
the two... A dark blue color....
* Reisha tries unloading a dagger right at the yellow spider's eye...
* Dal stays back, biting his lip.
that one must be water or ice elemental...
The dagger is deflected by the smaller spiders...
* David narrows his eyes and snarls, twirling the fiery blade..
* Reisha fumes. "Why is it never easy.."
The large spider's eyes glow deep red as a thought passes through the whole
team's mind... "*hissing voice* You have invaded our sanctum... We shall feast on your
flesh for days to come..."
===== COMBAT =====
Oh shut up and fight.
no matter what, you won't stop me from getting to Darin...EAT THIS!
* Kodah cracks his knuckles and gets ready
===== Monsters: Elemental spiders: Red spider, Yellow Spider, Blue spider.
* Reisha shakes the thought out. "In your dreams.. we'll hang ya by those 8 legs over
a roasting fire.. then who'll be featsing.." :P
Rei, concentrate on the Blue Spider with your thunder magic, OK?
that red one is mine....
Going to give it a chill, Jess? I got you..
== Dal can attack.
* Dal concentrates, surrounds his daggers with a blazing fire, and throws them in a
blur at the yellow spider!
== The daggers fly towards the yellow spider... They plant into its flesh,
but do not seem to cause too much damage... 6 damage.
== Kodah can attack.
* Sasha looks at Tiernan and Darin "Now how in the hell did you guys get stuck up
I leave leave for one moment and you guys are just helpless without me
that doesn't matter, Sasha...let's just get them down from there!
Rei: So is thunder....
== Kodah casts Detox on Tyr...
* Kodah snaps his fingers, and summons a tiny succubus, who flies over to Tyr. After
she bestows a quick kiss, Tyr is restored.
== Tyr is free of the poison that binds him... He slowly awakens...
Wake up time Tyr!
* Tiernan stirs and his eyes flutter open
* Tiernan looks down
== David can attack.
* Tiernan struggles to free himself from the webbing O_o
Tyr! We'll get you down.. keep your wings on.. ^^
* David leaps at the blue spider and snarls animalistically, slashing at it three
times with the fiery blade of AmeShi!
