Shining Force RPG 2 session 22
===== SESSION START =====
The Shining Force heads back towards the shrine north of the town of
Unrest in the hopes of pursuing their adventure... The sword of Darkness, Darrel,
awaits them patiently...
* Jess tries a couple of practice swings with her new Rapier. "I hope I can get the
hang of this thing."
* Tiernan looks about the bleak, frozen landscape, humming softly...
Don't worry Jess.. you will..
* Darin smiles reassuringly
* Reisha pouts. "I still can't believe we lost back there.. how humiliating.." :/
everyone loses now and then, Reisha.
We learned a lesson though... and we know better this time.
The wind knicks at the team with invisible blades of cold, the weather
seeming quite agitated...
Yeah, but that doesn't mean you have to like it. :P
I know better than to cast that chilling inferno this time....that really
kicked our asses.
* Tiernan shivers and pulls his overcoat tighter around his body...
Kodah...are you cold?
* Indigo reappears in a flash of brilliant white light.
Hi everyone! ^_^ Oooo...its' cold. Where are we now?
* Tiernan takes off his scarf and hands it to Kodah. ^_^
* Reisha tries to conserve her heat in the cold, her temper warming her up ever so
* Amy keeps a warm aura around her body to keep herself warm
No thanks, I'll be okay
* Kodah wraps the scarf back around Tyr's neck (gently)
* Darin looks at Jess.. "You ok?"
* David wraps his arms around Rei's waist..
You guys look downcast. What happened now?
* Tiernan smiles warmly. "Okay Kodah...but if you get too cold...you just have to ask
should be...if I could get the hang of this Rapier.
* Reisha mutters a little as David wraps his arm around her.
* Indigo blinks looking about.
The sky slowly darkens... Dark clouds gathering to the north...
.. I don't much like the look of that...
* David frowns a little down at Rei.. "Hey. Cheer up. It could be worse. I mean,
Indigo could be growing a beard and it could overcome us, chanting 'I am the
What's going on...?
* Reisha blinks.
I think we should work on finding shelter. Quick-like
* Jess sheathes her new weapon and latches onto Darin.
Shelter sounds like a plan, K-man.
* Indigo looks up.
And I thought Indy was wierd now.. ^^;
* Darin puts his arm around Jess.
* David looks around for some sort of shelter. "You know you like my weirdness!"
The sky is angry......
Oh a storm. Hey, what's going on here? I was away again....
Suddenly, Bryann runs into David!
* David falls over!
* Reisha loses her balance as David falls... "Hey!"
Bryann then suddenly runs off, without so much a word or a pardon for
running into David
* Kodah blinks at the newcomer
* David grunts and tries not to blush as Rei lands on him. "Stupid traveler! Where'd
you learn to walk! The back of a caravan!?"
...This day just keeps getting stranger and stranger... :/
* Jess shrugs....
* Darin nods..
* Reisha acks, and gets off of David.
Ohh.. the nerve of that guy! Remind me to toast him later!
* Indigo sighs.
speaking of toast, shall we get going to that shrine again?
Where's Amy? At least she listens...
* Tiernan holds his hand out and watches the snow fall gently on it. "..."
* David stands and chuckles. "Yes ma'am. Okay. Lets burn ground!"
It's pretty...isn't it?
* Amy walks behind everyone.
* Darin nods..and puts his arm back around Jess.
Yeah, but like everything, too much can be bad for you
* Indigo goes back to Amy and asks her how's she's feeling in the Elemental tongue.
I wish that wasn't so...
* David nods to Tyr, smiling slightly. "Don't mind Kodah...he hasn't had his Wheaties
today....snow is wonderful! Cold but...very beautiful!"
Really? What can I do with the snow?
* Indigo looks at the falling snow.
I think that world was made that way for a reason actually
Snow? Is that what this is?
* David grins and scoops down, building a snowball..
* David pelts it at Rei ;)
* David runs behind Tyr!
* Kodah blinks at Indy, "You don't know what SNOW is?"
That! You can do that! ;)
I didn't do that! O_o
But it looks like fun! ^_^
* Tiernan bends down and scoops some up in his hands...and pelts it at David!
* Reisha grabs a handful, and counters. "Oh, you want to start with me, eh?"
* David acks and grins at Tyr! He dumps snow down Tyr's back and sticks his tongue out
* Amy sighs
* Tiernan hops about
* Darin looks at Jess... debating....
* Kodah watches all the absurdity with muted amusement
Tyie gah winoo falsi ki ne (I don't understand what's going on)
* Jess looks at Darin. "Something wrong?"
* Reisha takes some snow and shoves it into David's mouth. :P
* David blinks and coughs! ^^;
* David spits out the snow and eyes Rei before scooping her up in his arms!
* David trots over to a snow pile and dumps Rei in it ;)
The snow David spits out has an odd yellowish color... A bitter mouth stays
in David's mouth.
* Tiernan looks at Amy and Zoie. "^_^ Would you like to try?"
heheheh.....this is funny
* Darin puts some snow down Jess's back.. then walks away...
* Indigo nods and murmurs back in Elemental "Nor do I".
* Reisha laughs.
* Indigo grabs a snowflake.
* Tiernan scoops up some more snow in his hands, his fingertips going numb ^_^;
First rule of winter wonderland kiddies.. don't eat the yellow snow.
Yeah... It is NOT apple flavored snow... I learned that the hard way.
* Narrator returns to Narrating
That voice again!
Who said that....
Didn't you hear it?
The cloud formations to the north get darker and denser as the Shining
Force approaches them...
* Indigo speaks in Elemental to Amy again asking "How do you feel, having healed
* Jess keeps going..
* David gets a slightly serious look again...
* Reisha looks at Tyr. "I told you to ignore that stupid voice."
...I know...it's just hard not to.
* Kodah keeps trudging along
* Amy keeps moving unsure as to what's going on.
* Amy walks over beside Tyr.
* Narrator whispers at Tiernan, "Ask Reisha if it's that time of the month."
* Tiernan looks up at the sky. "No! :/"
* David nudges some snow with his foot..
Hi Amy... ^_^
* Indigo conjures up a floating gloved hand with an outstretched pointing finger over
Tyr's head. :P
* Amy speaks in elemental tongue to Indigo before walking up to Tyr "It feels.... nice
* Reisha puts her hand on her face...
* Indigo smiles.
* Tiernan looks at the hand...and blinks. "What is that? O_o"
~Yes dear, shall I teach you how to control your power?~
* Indigo smiles.
* Jess looks over at Darin. "Something on your mind, love? You've been too quiet as
* David reaches out to touch Rei's shoulder, moving slightly so she can see his
concerned look....he doesn't talk loudly.. "Are you okay, Reisha...?"
Something I'm working on. ^_^
* Indigo adds a flashing red triangle over Tyr's head too.
* Reisha shifts her gaze a little. "Well.. I think I've had better days."
* Tiernan begins to look frightened. "What is that floating over my head?"
* David nods a little, hair falling into his eyes... "I understand...well...you
know...if there's anything I can do..."
Indy? What are you doing to Tyr?
*she throws her voice through the pointing hand* I'm the pointer! My job is
making sure you know where you are at all times.
* Reisha folds her arms. "Well I know a few things..."
* Tiernan litterally stumbles back in fear O_o
Like not be so reckless like before.
Stop that! Leave me alone! :/
* Jess seems determined today for some reason...
let's just keep moving. OK?
* David gets a serious look... "If it makes you cheer up, I'll promise you I won't be
so reckless anymore..."
* Jess keeps going north.
* Reisha sighs. "I hope you don't break it.. I've heard way too many broken
* Kodah tries to swat away the triangle over Tyr's head
You're the leader anyway. You go down, and then we all do..
* Indigo sends the hand around his head in an orbit, the triangle never leaving.
* David gets a grim look.. "....I know.....I know the responsibility I carry..."
* Tiernan gets back up and sighs. "So confusing..."
* Kodah helps Tyr to his feet
* Amy looks at Tyr and looks and Indy and the hand.
Hand: Weeeeeee! Now you'll never get lost! :D
The sky is dark and thick as the Shining Force notices the shrine in the
But I wasn't lost before...
Hand: And the triangle helps too....
What's that up ahead?
Tyr... was lost?
I don't think so...
* David looks at the shrine now... "Where we're headed, I guess. Shelter. Maybe
* Indigo looks at the temple and the triangle fades, then the hand drops into his
* Indigo shakes her head, brown hair flying.
* Amy looks at the temple
No, the Hand was just bothering Tyr.
* Reisha runs a hand through her long locks.
* Jess narrows her eyes at the entrance to the shrine. She finally speaks in a
determined voice, "Let's get going.... I recognize that place."
The sooner we get out of the wind the better. We'll freeze to death out here
if we're out in the open too long
* Tiernan blinks. "I don't remember coming here the first time...at all..."
* Kodah stops and narrow his eyes at the temple
Let's just go already.
* David places his hand on the hilt of his sword..
* Tiernan tries to get the hands to leave him alone -_-
There's something not right about that temple...
I know. I feel it too.
It's...it's like the Tower of Mightnight's Eve...
I suggest we prepare for the worst if we go in there
Well, I don't think freezing out here seems any more right than that temple.
I have to know why I came here....
let's just get in there It's better than freezing out here.
Is that the tower where all the demons were?
* Amy cautiously looks around.
* Amy shivers a little...
* Indigo hugs Amy.
* Tiernan hugs Amy as well...
* Kodah 's hackles go up as the group approaches the structure
* David draws the enhanced AmeShi and heads forward...
* Amy blinks
...Do you think...
* Tiernan blinks.
* Jess draws her rapier out of it's sheath.
That I could try that spell that helps me find information?
* Indigo nods.
You're welcome dear.
Which spell is that?
* Darin draws his Blade of Truth
Why don't you stay close to me? I'll help you.
The one where I don't remember what I'm saying but I seem to say things that
* Reisha just walks forward, getting impartient.
Thunder can suddenly be heard rumbling in the distance...
* David tenses..
* Indigo looks up.
Bolts of concentrated electricity start appearing in the distance...
This could be bad.
* Kodah bares his fangs
Looks like Atlas is really getting worked up.
* Indigo smiles.
* Reisha smiles a little.
I, wan-t t-to stay w-with Tiernan.
* Tiernan blinks. "What is that?"
Well.. at least I know I'm not the only one in a bad mood.. ^^
That flash of light...
A dark figure stands on one of the crashed pylons of the shrine and another
dark form floating in front of the entrance...
* Indigo smiles.
* Indigo looks at the figure.
O_o Huh? Who is that?
....we've got company...
Who goes there?
Hi! We're the Shining Force and we need shelter from the storm!
* Kodah fixes Indigo with the icy stare of agonizing death
* Reisha looks at the figure. "Who the heck is that?"
* David drops into defensive position and glares at the figures..."Indi. Save the
hallmark greetings for Christmas..."
* Indigo turns and blinks at Kodah.
* David inches forward, trying to get a better view..
* Tiernan finds himself taking several steps closer...almost involunaterily, but also
out of curiousity.
The man on the pylon quickly turns his gaze at the Shining Force, eyes
glowing a bright white, then quickly turns back to the other form at the entrance and
utters the words, "Rayjin final.." as he extends his fingers towards him...
Oh no! O_o
* Jess finds herself taking quite a few stps closer to Darin, instinctively.
Don't tell me it's Jeyer again...
Hey David, your mom had a spell called Rayjin, didn't she?
* David twitches ^^;
* Indigo turns to the figure.
No more blood spilled! Please stop it!
Hey! Is that you Kara? It's me, Indigo! I'm with your son!
A large bolt of power crashes down at the dark presence holding its ground
in front of the entrance... The powerful spell crashes at him, not affecting him one
* Kodah takes a small step back, falling into a defensive posture
..It's not my mom. ^^;
But only Kara could do that...
The dark form laughs maniacally as he absorbs the spell...
* David brings AmeShi up, peering towards the forms.. "No...this is different..."
* Jeyer growls, paying no heed to the Shining force... Simply at the task at hand...
* Jess assumes a defensive stance. "Mitula be with us. I hope I know enough about
using this thing to do any good.
Absorbing a Raijin Final...not too shabby at all
* Kodah narrows his eyes at the Mitula remark, but says nothing
* Tiernan takes several steps closer....
What are you doing...? O_o
Tiernan. Be careful. I mean it.
Hold up Tyr, we don't know all the details yet
* Zoie looks over at Jess and then at the floor and then just moves her eyes up
* Reisha juggles a few bolts of electricty herself.
* Indigo prepares to summon Doom.
* Jeyer starts off in a headlong rush, unsheathing his Katana from his left and
throwing it in his right hand in a single fluid movement... Then suddenly turns it up,
blade tip pointing outwards at the form, running silently, but blazingly fast...
* David watches Jeyer...
* Tiernan watches silently...
* Amy is just silently amazed at this.
* Jess watches the fight...
* Darin's jaw drops...
....tell me, what did my mother see in him again?
I have no idea.
* David mutters..
* Kodah watches the scene, wondering what Jeyer is doing. But he has his suspicions
The sword imbeds himself in the belly of the form, making a sickening sound
as it slides through flesh and bone... Jeyer then twists his blade inside the wound,
the sickening sound of bone grinding against metal resonating far louder than supposed
* Tiernan is standing a little too close for comfort...but he's not moving...which is
Jeyer is a masterful Ninja. That in and of itself has somewhat of a draw David
* David twitches... "Familiar move."
I can't believe what a showoff that guy is.
* Tiernan cringles visbily..
Kara was cold but friendly once you got to know her. Jeyer was always a jerk
as I recall....
that's what Lara told me, anyway.
But then again, he's our jerk, so we should help. Let's all attack the guy
he's fighting at once!
* Kodah waits for Jeyer to either finish, get toasted, ask for help, or tell the force
to piss off
* Tiernan nods slowly and begins to chant under his breath.
The form looks down at Jeyer, smirks, seemingly unnafected by the painful
attack... He extends a finger and touches Jeyer's forehead, whispering the words,
"Soul shriek", words barely inaudible, but again, they echo across the whole area...
* Jeyer freezes.
So let's go!
Sir!! Look out!
* Reisha raises an eyebrow.
* David's blade's flames flicker maddeningly suddenly..
* Indigo glows jet-black.
Indigo. Stay. Sit. Beg. Roll over.
* Tiernan looks unsure of what to do next...
Grandma, I hope you're watching...
* Jess holds her Rapier ready.....
* Amy remains silent.
== A dark pit opens up under Jeyer... Thousands of ghastly shapes float up
and lash out with phantom claws and teeth, shreding Jeyer in every direction. 436
Umm.. something tells me even Jeyer might have bitten off more than he could
chew this time..
* David twitches but holds his ground....
* Zoie watches Indigo intently
For the love of...Jeyer...you... o_O
* Jeyer winces and crumbles to the ground, lifeless....
That was unnecesary
* Tiernan 's face hardens.
talk about overkill
Hey, you can't do that!
I could revive him...
* David starts forward more, moving past Tyr to crouch defensively in front of the
force... he glares at the dark form..
The form looks at the Shining Force with a grin that paralyzes the whole
team... His blood red eyes glowing brightly, he starts uttering arcane words...
....I can't move...!
* Darin pulls Jess close to him ....
* Kodah chokes, as his whole body suddenly locks up
That was an act of sorcery and I command you to appear before the Arcane.....
* David growls and struggles to move!
* Reisha grimaces. "Hey buddy.. I've had a bad enough day without some dark bozo
getting on my nerves.." >:|
* Tiernan falls to his knees.
* Kodah struggles to move, but without success
* Reisha struggles to get her magic going!
The form, oblivious to the insults and taunts thrown at him, continues his
This...guy's magic...is...unimaginably strong...
this is grand... absolutely grand..
no joke, Kodah...he's one hell of a sorcerer.
* Tiernan tries to chant his magic, unsure if it will work since he cannot make the
guestures along with his words...
You must answer...to...to a council of mages.....for this. I, Indigo
Mysteria, master elementalist....command it!
Ergh.. just let me.. get one good shot
* David closes his eyes and tries to summon some power to move..
He's the one...who's...defiling this...place...I know it!
The ground starts to rumble... A loud rumble... As the form's black aura
surrounds him, slowly reshaping him... His body spawns scales all over... His head
splits in three distinct heads... And his body grows... Larger and larger...
Indigo.. pardon my ouburst.. shut up already. The more you insult him, the
worse it will get I'm sure.
Kodah...! It hurts....!
Oh no... Oh god no o_O
You will answer for this...and accept the judgment of the council for your
* Tiernan pales... O_o
it's....Holy Mitula herslef...no....DARK DRAGON...
* Indigo gasps as he transforms, then speaks to Zoie.
Dark Dragon...not again
I was required to give that command....
* Indigo blinks.
It was destroyed...we destroyed it.
* David growls... "Not again......why don't you just stay dead!!"
I think we're screwed.. o_o
* Zoie growls at the words Jess spoke
How...how can he be alive.....he was killed....wasn't...he?
I was told that Dark Dragon was destroyed by Lara's Force Sword.
We defeated it once, Kara, Erin, Lara, myself and the others. We can do it
The temple rumbles as its stone lift upwards...
....technically mom was dead during the fight
You mean that's that Drak Dragon people were babbling about?
Dark dragon starts to grow his dark, leathery wings and takes flight,
hovering over the shrine...
Yes...one of the three dark powers who vyed for control over all devils
...if this is how it ends.....so be it..
You fool lizard! You think you're frightening? Ha! You were defeated, shown
to be the lowly worm you are. Back to your pit~
Hey.. dragon or no.. nobody's beating me twice in one day..! :/
* Indigo cannot move, but her green eyes blaze with defiance.
Indigo...SHUT UP ALREADY!
The shrine lifts itself into the darkened sky slowly, leaving the Shining
Force on the ground... As it slowly lifts itself up...
* Reisha tries harder to extricate herself.
* David growls..
that must be the....Shrine....of.....
The Dragon thinks it can intimidate us.
Were you required to say that as well indigo?
We you born stupid Indi, or do you freaking practice!!
No, I just wanted to. The Dragon irritates me. ^_^
Dark dragon laughs an omnious laugh... Sending chills down everyone's
spines as the shrine lifts itself too far overhead, moving away to the east slowly,
Dark dragon dissapearing inside the large gates...
he's taking the shrine..?
* Amy shivers
* Indigo blinks.
That's new. I guess the lizard does learn new tricks.
* Kodah glares hatefully at Indigo
As the shrine floats away, someone falls off the edge, plummeting towards
Indigo, a word of advice.. speaking just for the sake of hearing your own voice
is not a good thing to do.
I was born insane Kodah, not stupid. ^_^ Besides, I use Dragons for pillows.
Ask Flamestrike, I kicked him around enough. ^_^
* Jess runs toward the falling figure and jumps, trying to catch the person.
Dark Dragon is not Flamestrike you putz!
Yeah... Dark Dragon is j00r d4ddy
Well, he has the same weaknesses I assume. Kick him in the eye, hit the wing
* Darin blinks..still in shock..
* Tiernan tries to run towards the falling man.
* David shakes it off surprisingly well and follows Tyr!
* Indigo looks towards Jeyer.
* Tiernan then lifts himself into the sky to catch him in the air! O_o
