Shining Force RPG 2 session 30
===== Session start! =====
The Shining Force gathers at the docks, attempting to find a boat to lead
them to the next island in pursuit of Reisha(The feminazi bitch from hell).
Unfortunately, no ships seem to be in service...
* Indigo reappears in an intense burst of white light.
The docks is fairly empty...
we could always swim.
I could fly...but...well.. ^^: You can't.
* David scowls, his arms crossed... "Grand.."
So, what are we all waiting for?
* Jessica looks out. "How far is it to the next island."
Hmm...Is there a port house anywhere...maybe we can hitch a ride on a cargo
The docks seems fairly deserted... A few lower class ships stand anchor
dropped, their captains busy with loading and unloading cargo.
...Like that one?
* Meredith points to a random cargo ship
A cargo ship....yes....good thinking, Meredith..
* Meredith blinks and turns around to Indigo! O_o
excellent idea, Meredith.
* David blinks and ehhs at Indigo
* Meredith whispers to David. "Tackle her. Now. While she's semi-sane."
* David blinks. ^^; "But that'd be wrong.."
* Indigo looks about....
I have an idea! ^_^
* Indigo glows blue.
* David tackles Indigo!!
* Meredith whispers to David "She's insane....^_^ Thank you! "
Neptune, Elemental of Water, tidal wave the beach and carry us away!
== Indigo's spell fails
* David grunts ^^;
* Indigo sighs.
* Meredith helps tackle Indi with David!
David, it's rude to tackle people.
* David gets sandwiched by Meredith
* Indigo glows blue.
Neptune, Elemental of Water, tidal wave the beach and carry us away!
Indigo...! Stop summoning!!
I could give her a nice new smile....right across the neck.
* Indigo blinks, still surrounded by her blue aura.
* Meredith pins her arms back. "David, do you have any rope or anything like that?!"
Dear, it's what I do for a living. You'll understand one day.
* Indigo pats David's head before Meredith grabs her.
Oh, yeah, and I suppose it's your 'living' to off half of the guard here,
* David grabs a rope, hesitating. "But...she...I thought we figured out that she
* Aura rolls her eyes
can we just get a ride to the next island?
...I gotta tie her up long enough so I can explain a few things to her
without her summoning crap
* David wrinkles his nose before tying Indigo's hands behind her back.
And more crap...and more crap...you know what I mean...
Can we get on a cargo ship now?
* Jessica freezes Indigo's lips shut again with her ice magic. "That should keep her
* Aura sighs and watches..
* Meredith nods, and turns Indigo to her, pushing her long. "Listen closely, Indigo,
* David heads to a cargo ship..
You know how you keep seeing Mitula on a regular basis?
* Indigo struggles, then nods and writes with her finger. ~Yes, she is the founder of
my family line. I call her Grandma.~
I know, Indigo...that woman is a fake.
* David crosses his arms, looking for a sailor..
She's been finding out information about you and is driving you back into
* Aura stands by the ship, staring at the water
That's why she knows so much about you.
* Jeyer walks away from the party across the coast line, looking at the ships docked,
estimating one that would give the Shining Force safe passage...
* David eyes Jeyer...before sinking into his thoughts..
* Indigo blinks.
* David looks down at the water lapping against the docks...
* Aura sits at the edge of the water, staring at it
~But Grandmother loves me. She protects me and said she would always be with
me. She warned me of the family curse too.~
Because she's Celia...the same person who courrupted Tyr.
She's a shapeshifter...
Just trust me, Indigo. Do not go back to this woman.
* Aura ponders just jumping into the water to get away from these loonys
* David snaps his gaze up to Jeyer's form.. "Hey! Any luck?"
I think I'll just start swimming....the sooner I get away from that psycho
bitch, the better.
* Jeyer suddenly trips at David's voice and falls face first in a pile of boxes
* David grimaces and wanders over to Jeyer, helping him up.. ^^;
* Aura blinks and looks over at the Jeyer
* Indigo blinks and cries.
I'm sorry, Indigo...
* Jeyer leans on David to get up, wincing.... "Gah."
* Jeyer dusts himself off and coughs slightly.. "I... Erm. No ships seem to take any
Just don't summon too many things until this crisis with Volcanon is
solved....not summon needlessly or for show. I have a feeling the spirits are confused
as hell and that's why your summons don't work
* Meredith unties Indigo
* Aura unlaces her boots and wades into the water..
* Indigo falls down and sobs, her hands to her eyes.
Hide on a ship?
* Jessica walks up behind David. "I like the idea of swimming, or I could create an
ice bridge...but that would exhaust me.
* Meredith looks at one of the cargo unloaders. "Maybe I can hitch us a ride..."
I'll be back in a moment!
* David nods to Meredith..
* Aura dunks her head under the water and looks around..
* Jeyer glances over at the candidates.. "They're all unusually well guarded.."
* Meredith runs off to one of the unloaders and chats with him, showing off her
A small crab pinches Aura's nose
* Aura shrieks and hops out of the water
* David grimaces at Aura before rubbing his forehead..
* Aura grabs the crab and throws it against a boat
The unloader glances at Meredith sideways.. "No passengers. Sorry."
But this is an emergency! The Shining Force MUST make it to the next
island. Your lives depend on it!
The crab crashes against the prow of the boat, becoming a crab puff as he
slides back in the water.
* Aura puts all of her blades into her boots and goes deeper into the water
* The unloader shrugs as he carries off a box to a storage house. "Not my problem,
* David looks back into the water..
* Meredith glares. "It will be."
* Meredith sighs and heads back to David. "No luck."
* Aura gets up to her waist in the water and looks around..
Great....well....what are our options...?
Could we swim that far?
That's all that's left.
* Jeyer glances over at Aura and blinks...
I could request to reserve a ship, but that could take a couple of weeks.
* Aura spies something she wants and dives under the water
we don't have that long, Meredith.
* David runs a hand through his hair, beginning to look more and more frustrated..
"So....we...maybe we just...need to wait a night? Maybe there'll be ships tomorrow.."
Not according to the schedule...
The sky starts turning dark suddenly... The seamen glowering as they start
working faster to get their cargo to safety
* Meredith ecks and adjusts her glasses. "The next ship is coming in...a week. And
* Jessica snaps her fingers as a small piece of ice appears in her other hand.
* David looks up..
* Meredith blinks.
* Aura pops her head out of the water
* David murmurs.. "We could still hide on a ship."
I wonder if our winged psychopath is returning...?
you mean hide among the cargo?
* Aura walks towards the shore..tripping a few times as she goes
* David nods to Jessica..
Yeah, we've got no choice...we might as well.
All the seamen suddenly call to raise anchor and the ships start departing
in a frenzy of sails and sailor curses
* Aura yelps as the anchor she's standing on gets pulled up off the ground
* Jeyer blinks and yells at Aura to move!
* David looks miserable... and then blinks at Aura.. "Aura..!"
* Aura is pulled about 6 feet up into the air, then tumbles off into the water
* Meredith flies off the docks and grabs Aura before she fully falls into the water!
* David sighs softly... "Jeyer?"
* Aura just blinks at the boat.."why the hell did they do that o_O"
«ooc: Tyr: Hmm...Reisha...you shall the Godess of the Storm...Yeeeesssss..... »
* Jeyer just stays there, blinking... "Uhm. Yes?
Because something is coming...again. You know how it is. ^^;
* Meredith flies to the dock and sets Aura down on it. "There!"
Surely you have some mystic voodoo...or something..to get us to that
* Aura looks up at the sky..."its a prettty color.."
thank you, Meredith
* Jeyer shakes his head.. "I can't use my powers, David."
* Meredith gives David a twitching eye look.
* David blinks at Meredith..
^^; Um...do you think...Reisha?
* David looks up at the sky..
could be, Meredith....
...I don't know...
I hope not.
* Aura grabs her boots and stuff and walks up onto the shore, away from the water
* David closes his eyes..
* Meredith gives David a reassuring hand on his shoulder. "It'll be okay, David."
* David opens them again and shakes his head... "If it was Reisha, she'd probably zap
some poor sailor in the butt with a lightning bolt....just cause."
* Darin sighs.. and looks up at the sky..
* Jessica looks up too, but up at Darin. "what's wrong, love?"
We should head to an Inn....we need to get a plan..
Standing here on the docks is just asking for trouble..
...I suppose you're right...
== The sky turns pitch black, the only lights visible being the ones
lighting the docks... The streets are completely empty as a thick fog starts to settle
over the docks area...
* Aura just stares up at the sky..
...What time is it, everyone?
* David blinks and looks around.. "It wasn't late enough to be dark.."
In the morning?
...Damn...Something's coming...We'd better find shelter now...
* David nods..
Lets go back to the Inn..
* Aura disapears off into the fog..
* Jessica looks at her watch. "yeah..we'd better find sheleter."
* Meredith grabs Aura before she wanders too far.
Let's go, Little one. ^^:
* Jessica grabs Darin and goes to the inn.
* David turns and heads back to the inn.. "C'mon..."
Lights in the distance appear in the water...
* Aura grumbles.."i'm not thaat little.."
* David blinks
Sorry Aura. ^^;
* David turns and looks.. "Huh.."
* Aura points to the lights
* Jessica stops and looks back.
The lights seem to cut through the fog... As the form approaches, a
tattered sail can be made out by the Shining Force...
...A ghost ship/
* David blinks and frowns, feeling himself tense..
* Darin blinks..
more than likely.
Everyone be ready..
* Aura stares out at the boat
* David brings his hand up to the hilt of AmeShi, eyeing the rapidly appearing ship..
* Jessica summons a fireball.
* Aura forms a ball of ice in the air in front of her
The boat quickly settles at the end of the docks, not dropping anchor... It
simply sits there, waiting.
We don't have any other ways...
* David looks at the group.
* Aura walks towards the boat
* Meredith flies onto the boat
* David nods and heads for the boat..
* Jessica follows david to the boat.
* Aura stands next to the boat
* Jeyer nods resolutely as he goes to board the ship...
The planks of the boat are rotted, but are seemingly solid... The whole
deck is devoid of any movement...
* Aura climbs into the boat
* David frowns and mutters.. "This has so got to be a trap..."
* Darin looks at the boat... "I .. don't like this."
Its all we've got to work with, Darin..
* Jessica follows Aura. "I don't like this one bit, but....I guess we'll have to
check it out."
Ghost ships ARE traps, normally...
* David follows Aura as well, boarding the ship..
* Aura jumps down hard onto one of the rotted boards to check its strength
The board survives the hit, seeming quite sturdy
* Aura walks along the deck of the boat..
* Meredith follows...
* David trudges along as well, curious..
Where do we start looking, David? The captain's quarters?
* Aura jumps on another random board
Yeah....we should look there first...that'd have a log book..
The board survives the impact
* Darin slowly gets onto the ship...
* Indigo walks along the ship, then perks up at Meredith's suggestion and trails
* Aura shrugs and finds a high spot to sit on
* David heads for the captain's quarters.. "Everyone be ready just in case..."
* Jeyer climbs up slowly, trying as not to trip and fall...
* Aura hops down and helps Jeyer on
* Jeyer flinches at the help, but then calms himself and accepts her help... "Thank
* Aura smiles and kisses him softly on the cheek
* Darin offers Jess his arm as they walk.
* David opens the door to a cabin he finds..
* Jeyer blinks quickly and climbs on board..
* Jessica takes darin's arm.
* Aura hops back up to her perch
As the last of the Shining Force climb aboard the large ship, it suddenly
starts moving away from the docks...
...No turning back now...
* Aura blinks and runs over to look off the edge
* Jeyer sits down in a corner and falls asleep...
* Aura looks over the edge
* David sighs and glances about...
* Jessica clings onto Darin for dear life.
I don't see any danger....not here, anyway...
Let's find the captain's quarters...
* Aura sighs and backs away from the edge
* David nods and heads for the quarters..
* Indigo steps into the Captain's quarters, sits in the chair, and props her feet up
on the desk.
I said it before, and I'll say it again... I don't like this.....
* Aura finds Jeyer and sits next to him
* Meredith follows David.
* Jeyer mumbles in his sleep..
* David blinks as he finds the quarters and Indigo in them. ;P "Indi...what are you
* Meredith sighs.
* Aura just kind of watches Jeyer sleep
The ship seems eerily quiet... It's heading towards the next island.
* David frowns.
* Indigo smiles.
....maybe she has the right idea...resting...
I don't see any ghosts...We might as well rest now that we have the
* Aura resists the urge to snuggle up next to Jeyer, and just kisses him softly..then
* David nods...
Someone's gotta keep a lookout, though.
I could do it..
* Indigo climbs into the captain's bed and falls asleep. ^_^
No. You rest. I'll do it.
* Aura looks around the boat..
If you're sure...
Positive. You've got enough on your mind. You'll need all the rest you can
* David frowns a little but nods.. "Okay...but wake me if you're unsure of
Now go get some well earned sleep. ^_^
* David nods again.. "Oky.."
* Aura finds the cargo hold hatch thing
* David heads for the back of the ship, wanting to be alone..
* Aura pulls it open and crawls down inside the boat
* Darin goes outside, and stands at the railing.
* David takes off his tunic, bundles it into a pillow and lies down, clutching AmeShi
to himself as he slowly goes to sleep..
* Meredith keeps a wary eye open for anything remotely wrong.
An unearthly stench makes its way from the cargo hold
* Meredith sniffs.
...Geh, that could be a problem..
* Aura starts to choke and cough as she reaches the floor of the cargo hold
* Meredith glances over at David, and just keeps an eye on the cargo hold.
* David sleeps as if he's needed it very badly, a frown on his face..
* Darin turns around and looks at the cargo hold.
* Jessica is with Darin.
David needs sleep, but I have to investigate the cargo hold...
* Aura covers her mouth and nose and blinks..looking around the cargo hold
* Indigo is soundly sleeping in the captain's bed. ^_^
I need someone to come with me and investigate.
I'll go wtih you, Meredith. You could use an experienced Magician on your
The cargo hold is empty, save for three barrels of rotting fruits and
Thanks Jessica. :)
...Ah...that's it. :p
* Jessica nods.
* Meredith points at the barrels....
* Aura gaaahgs and goes to check them anyway
we could throw them overboard.
at least get rid of the smell. :P
* Meredith picks up a barrel and hurls it overboard!
The barrel of anchovies suddenly spills over the floor!
* Aura yelps and slips as the anchovies spill on her
Oh well...I guess we'll just have to hold our noses the entire trip.
I'll take care of that.
* Darin goes down into the cargo hold "You ladies okay?"
I could burn them wtih my fire magic.
* David curls up tighter, grimacing..
* Aura whimpers and stands up, but slips again
* Aura crawls away from the anchovies and stands up, whimpering
Everyone...I'll clean this up -_- You get some sleep!
You'll need it.
* Aura crawls up onto the deck and finds a corner..
* Aura whimpers..."i'm all anchovy-y"
* Jessica grabs Darin and goes back upstairs and finds a room for the couple.
* Darin frowns at Aura as he offers his hand to Jess.
* David sleeps fitfully on the deck..
The ship makes no noise as it splashes through the calm river...
* Aura sighs at Darin
Please. Go. To. Sleep.
* Aura crawls away and hides in a corner..
I'll keep lookout.
* Aura hides in a corner, whimpering about anchovies..
===== Cut scene! =====
David sleeps restlessly... His thoughts wandering to Reisha(No shit). A
large, grassy field, completely empty... David stands at one end, Reisha stands about
30 feet away... Both are staring at eachother...
* David blinks.. "Reisha...?"
* Reisha stares cooly at David, as if reading his thoughts.. a small breeze in the
field playing with her blonde hair.
David, why did you come here?
* David steps forward... "Reisha....wha....this is a dream.."
....you know why...
* David clenches his fists..
Do you really want to risk everything...
* David doesn't hesitate, quickly answering. "Yes! Yes, Reisha! I will risk everything
to get you to come back!"
* Reisha closes her eyes. "That doesn't sound like a good leader... It sounds more
A breeze blowing over the grass suddenly stops...
* David blinks and tenses.. "Wh.."
Like a man... in love.
But is love worth dieing for? It can be so fleeting..
....this isn't fleeting, Rei...I...I can't...stop thinking about you..
You're....you're on my mind...all the time...I just....god, Rei...I love
you...I know its not fleeting..
Maybe we are both crazy...
* David tries to get closer to Reisha, almost afraid she'll disappear.. "Reisha...it
can't end here....I can't let you go....I can't lose you....not now...not ever.."
The grass fades away... Darkness surrounds them both now...
* David glances around..
* Reisha 's form darkens...
No, I'm already lost.. I always was... just give up on me...
* David gets a determined look thats so seldom on his face.. "I will never give up on
you..and you're not lost.."
* Reisha sighs... fading away more...
* David looks desperate.. "Stay...."
* David blinks...
He's the only thing that's real, here...
* Reisha starts laughing....
* Tiernan appears behind Reisha in a an instant, giving David a self-satisifed smrik.
Give up David. It's pointless. Pointless to change what's occurred. Give up.
I'll never give up!!! I'll never give up on her! On what the Shining Force
exists for! You demon.....release Tiernan!
* David narrows his eyes
Tiernan...? Ha ha ha ha HA HA HA!
* Tiernan laughs!
* David growls..
* Reisha fades back in, an aura of power around her.
David.. just.. go away. Stop being a fool and save yourself.
* Reisha raises ehr hand.. and blasts David with a surge of electricity.
* Tiernan 's voice seems to gain a slight inhuman growl to it. "The little mortal form
of Volcanon...? Him? Why, he's dust on the wind. Don't bother."
* David cries out in pain
== David is blasted into unconsciousness... He falls and everything in his
dream dissapears in a flash.
===== End cut scene! =====
David awakens screaming!
* David screams as loud as he can, bolting upwards, his hair plastered damply to his
forehead and his body bathed in sweat
* Indigo is awakened from her sleep by David's screams and goes to him.
* Darin snaps awake. "What in Mitula's name was that!?"
* Aura blinks her eyes open
DAMN YOU ZEON!!!!!
Awww.....did little Davie have a nightmare? There there....
* Indigo pats his head.
Oh BACK off you fruit!
* David stumbles to his feet, walking unevenly to the railing..
Tell Auntie Indi all about it.... ^_^
* David shivers like he was trapped in a snowstorm..
...David...what happened? Did Zeon...?
* Indigo sits on his bed and hugs him close.
* Aura starts to stand up, but slumps back down when she realizes that she reeks of
* David grips the railing so roughly in his hands that in creaks under the strength..
* Indigo smiles.
A wet feeling can be felt in David's ear... And something blowing in it...
* David blinks and raises his hand to his ear.. "What..!"
* Aura crawls out of the corner over to the edge of the boat
The feeling suddenly dissapears...
Now now....we all get bad pictures in our head sometime. You drink a glass of
warm milk, and I'll tell Kara and Chamolo that you need a good sleeping spell.
A big patch of wetness can be felt across Indigo's cheek suddenly...
* David growls and slumps down onto the deck bonelessly..
Indigo...he's a friggin' teenager! Leave him alone!
* Darin watches from a distance, feeling unable to help.
....I...I won't give in....I won't....won't give up...on...on Reisha...or
Tiernan....torture me...go on!
You have no compassion Meredith! I'm a mother, I know how to handle these
* Aura reaches longingly at the water over the edge
* David stands again, his arms spread to the sky. "GO ON! TORTURE ME!"
I WON'T BREAK!!!
* Indigo shivers from the wetness on her cheek.
* Meredith backs up a bit. ^^;
* David pants from his hurt, from his sadness, from his anger....he looks down, going
* Meredith looks at him with compassion...
Now dear, do you feel better? The bad demons have all gone away.
Meredith is suddenly thrown back as though something trampled her
* Aura looks over at David..then back down at the water
* David looks up and blinks.. "Meredith..?"
* Indigo makes shadow pictures on the wall.
Look, bunnies! ^_^
* Meredith falls on her back and looks very very very dazed. O_o
* David runs to Meredith's side and helps her up, narrowing his eyes..
Stomping noises can be heard in the room, then suddenly go towards the door
* Aura hangs halfway off the boat, looking down at the water
* Indigo looks.
...@_@ You'd better geterway David...dere be a battle goin' on heres....huh
Come out come out wherever you are!
* Meredith shakes herself awake
* David brushes his damp hair from his face, growling as he draws AmeShi..
Aura suddenly feels something sniffing at her, then gets completely wet as
an invisible sponge like substance drags over her
* Aura blinks and shivers..."oh..my..god..what..was..that.."
* David tenses and yells.. "Everyone be at ready! We've got company!"
* Aura backs away from teh edge of the boat
Don't worry. Ghosts are good.
* Darin draws his blade...
A rather large yowl can be heard suddenly, freezing everyone in place
In the name of Mitula, return to your home ghosts!
* David blinks... "What..."
* Aura blinks..
* Jessica runs in with a hand encased in fire.
* Indigo looks about her warily, drawing her staff.
* Darin blinks
The deck suddenly flares up with ghastly blue light as a canine form
* Aura backs into Jeyers corner and hides next to him
...It's a bloodhound!
O_o Oh gods no..
* Darin backs up... "WHAT?!"
* Jeyer still sleeps peacefully...
didn't we fight one of those before?
===== COMBAT =====
* Kodah blinks
* Aura shakes Jeyer..."wake up! wake up!"
===== Monsters: Dinky the Tailless Bloodhound's ghost. =====
You don't think that this is the ... GHOST ?
* Jeyer curls up on himself, not waking up...
* Meredith whips out her sword. "This'll be fun..."
* David crouches..
* Aura shakes Jeyer more.."Wake up!!!!!!"
* Indigo eeps.
well, since it's a ghost, I guess magic'll work on it.
* Jeyer suddenly fades out to transparency, his body becoming immaterial...
* Aura yelps.."Jeyer!!"
== Kodah and Meredith can attack!
* David snarls, his eyes alive with fury..
* Meredith opens her hand, a plume of fire appearing in her palm. She breathes in the
flames, but instead of hurting her, they give her power! "Flame Vigor!"
* Aura whimpers...
* Kodah summons his black aura again, and draws it towards his hands. Then with a
mighty shout, he unleashes a searing beam of devil power at the enemy! "Majinken!"
== Meredith casts Flame Vigor on herself... 13 attack bonus.
* Aura turns to the giant blue dog..then looks back at Jeyer
== Kodah attacks DtTB... His attack sears through the ghost form, phasing
it... 47 damage! Critical!
== David can attack!
* David rushes at Dinky, the flames of AmeShi crackling angrily with his pent up fury.
He dashes alongside the dog, his blade slashing across its body....he rolls back to
== David attacks DtTB... His blade seems to cut through the form easily...
== Aura can attack!
* Aura growls and throws a ball of ice at the dog..."Fetch THat!"
== Aura casts Freeze lv 1 on Dinky... Dinky catches it in his teeth in mid
air, but its maw freezes! He yowls and drops it on his foot, dealing more damage! 16
== Darin can attack!
* Darin rushes the stupid canine slashing wildly. "DIE!!! (again!)
* Aura growls at the dog..

dealing massive damage! 48 Damage!

deck... His speed increases quickly...
