“Hey, I owe you one!” I communicate through a LAN equivalent or other as I move to above the Bot-tender. Then, thinking something along the lines of ‘Easy come, easy go’, I try diplomacy.
“See these guys over there? They’re my friends. If they have tabs, consider them paid.” I say as I dangle the money in front of the Bot-tender, fully intending to just fork it over, while pointing at the two C-name-beginning bots with another tentacle.

[Yeah, gosh, doge, use protocols. You know how slow vocal communication is?]

I tell Thor “Thanks, I’ll do that.” and proceed to leave for the canteen. Egiool’s going to stay here to keep him company, so it’s fine.
It doesn’t take me long to get there. The so-called canteen is empty – mostly. All the furnishings are still in place – and there’s two other people. One of them is some guy – he’s plainly dressed. The other is someone I already know – Krista. Well, I know her name, we’ve been introduced to each other, but… eh, what do I know.
Well, since Egiool wanted to be proud of me, I guess I can go amuse him, so I walk up to the table Krista is sitting at and sit down next to her.
“Hey. It’s been a while.” I’m allowed to just say true things, right?

Egiool proceeds to keep the aforementioned company, answering Thor’s question.
“.affinitY .metal magic is something I can recognize ,having used it myselF .also ,clawS” Egiool squeezes at air a few times with some of his own. “.based on the sample size of me ,they are a popular choicE”
Egiool then turns to the other people in the pool.
“?introductions ,eH” Egiool doesn’t take a deep breath, but he does a magical equivalent – and begins speaking much more loudly. Speaking, not shouting. “!my name is egiooL ,and it’s pronounced /i//dʒi//uːl/ .maybE ?you want me to scratch that somewherE”

I hear there’s a game of pool in this place. Pools are good, so I find the relevant location in the pub, then begin playing against some bot with a big shark-head. It’s kind of scary.

“So you’re Thor, Will’s Entity. I believe I haven’t seen Will yet.” I state – truthfully, as far as I can tell.
Some concluding goes on in my mind.
“Could it be that you only appeared today?” I ask. So Telerius could be getting new people to come here every week, or I just haven’t noticed him, which is also a possibility. There was a lot of new people here, and we got to spend just a few days together – if someone wanted to be secretive, I could’ve missed them. Would they then go on to send an Entity out to talk? Maybe.
An arm rises from the pool and grasps its edge, followed by two more, followed by another two – then, Egiool rises from the not-depths.
“.so you’re also a metal guY .hellO .name’s egiooL .nice to meet yoU” he says, then, after a slight pause, adds “.if you ever want to spar ,feel free to asK”

Aw, her refusal’s disappointing! I’m sure there’s some kind of merit to her words, though. I could pose a risk to her items just by being there, after all – the ceiling at Arcady’s house has some scorch marks from me failing to mind my flame. Yeah, she’s right.
“Oh, okay!” I say. “I imagined that you had a huge beaker over there that we could use as a hot tub. Actually- hold on, I have a brain tissue?”
I try taking a look inside my skull, but it’s dark in there. “That’s not going to work.”
Then my entire head bursts into flame. I barely hear the plop of my hair falling to the ground over the crackling of the fire. After a while, my skull’s exposed, all the wax burnt off, so I take another look. Aside from the wick going through it, it’s empty.
“I think I must’ve accidentally burnt that tissue. Must’ve been one of the one-use paper ones. Good thing, too, I don’t think it’s healthy having these in your brainpan.” I sum up the experience. “So it seems I don’t have a brain, but then-” I take a better look at Lethea to confirm my suspicions “-neither do you! Let’s go bathe somewhere else, then! I mean, this place’s too public, there’s…” No, wait, the two plant people that were here are gone now. “More people could come, we still shouldn’t be bathing here.”

Designation: Takko-24, although that’s just a given ID.
Hardware Specifications: A roughly oblong, rounded-edged but still edged main body several liters in size, with eight tentacles coming out of the side which, as a result, is the bottom. There’s also a metal beak in the midst of them. The tentacles are smooth, not bare-metal segmented – in fact, there’s no bare metal – the polymer outer covering has color-changing properties, and the tentacles have gecko-like structures which allow them to grip well. The main body has two little transparent not-quite-domes housing visual receptors, which can perceive polarized light.
Software Specifications: Somewhat neurotic. Enthusiastic and boisterous about its features, to the point of being slightly paranoid about their safety. Mourns the ink sacs.
Hard Drive Data Store: Memories of swimming in the ocean, eating other animals. Memories of being captured, held in a tank. Growing intelligence. Uploading. Cyberspace. Being uploaded into Takko-24. Release, and very recent memories of all the wonders of the world seen from a new perspective.
Area of Expertise: Learned limb movements. More specifically, as a (somewhat former) octopus, Takko-24 has an affinity for its eight limbs and can be very dexterous with them. This, however, only applies to movements it’s familiar with – simple land movement, swimming, climbing and finer touching/grasping. Anything else it’d have to learn first to execute reliably, with the payoff of being more reliable indeed once learned.

I stand outside the healing pool, observing the Egiool contained within it. He looks like a horror lurking in the shallows. It’s hard to tell whether or not his arms are growing back.
At some point, I hear clicking of something hard but small-surfaced on the floor. After I turn, the source of that sound reveals itself to be a person, a male… an Entity. Humans don’t have claws on their feet, after all. Not usually.
.do me prouD
…right.
“Hi.” I blurt out. Not thinking much about my greeting is how it’s supposed to go, right?

[hey there the dude]

Gina, after returning to her human-like form, has wandered off. She stands beside Lilah at the terminals, looking like she’s thinking of something pretty good. Then she chooses one of the contact icons and types a short message.
“To Lethea, I think you could help me in many ways if I could meet you at your place, thanks in advance, Gina.” she types, reading it aloud as she goes. “That should work.” With that, she sends the message, then turns to observe Lilah conversing with Bloodroot. “The response times here must be pretty short!”

Since the boss will steal them from the player it’s in, the player it’s in won’t get the buff because their dose’s stolen, which sounds like a good way of telling which one it is.

“What the Krijyl was that?” Morespring blurts out as his body jolts back to life, his metallic blood acting up. Then he sees Zylon throw out all the healing orbs. “Thanks, but I know someone more in need of this than me.”
Once again, Morespring points his sword away from him, the dark vortex of life forming again. This time, though, its end is plugged into Anovala. Some of Morespring’s own life falls into the vortex and flows into her – then he charges at the skull, as to Redirect some of its own Life there as well.

Egiool fires two chains at the stems of two of the nearby huge mushrooms – the mushrooms are close to each other as well, and close to me, but not close to him. Before they latch, he reaches out with several arms and grabs Holly, holding her by as many appropriate places as he can manage, hopefully not hurting her too much with his metal grip.
And then he zips away, Holly in tow, all unused arms fending off the slimes with more airblasting.
“?so ,are you doing anything lateR”

The Black Knight reshapes itself a little, the sword floating through its form until it points at where Holly is or was, forming a spike in the front of what is essentially a several-legged cylinder, then begins galloping towards that place, charging at the slimes to trample them. Gina just looks in my direction and gives me twenty thumbs up. I give her two.

Lilah, using every ounce of strength she can muster in her arm equivalents, lifts the cyborg demon up, it pivoting on its knees, still far from being upright. Making more and more vines propped against its chest, she finally manages to press hard enough for the demon to achieve a kneeling position, then fall on its back. As it does, a flash of white light emits from it, and it suddenly stirs to consciousness. Just a moment too late, though – while it fell short of the sludge stain on the floor, it still got covered with a bunch of it, and then it was faced with its by now well-explored weakness – more lightning bolts.
Explosions hurt based on their strength, but also on how close they are to the target and how much of the target is hit by them – and the sludge covering has the two latter points covered. (pun not intended) The demon’s armor plating doesn’t even seem broken – it was hit rather evenly. Instead, the shockwave penetrated it and made a right mess out of its insides, helped by some of the plating spalling and the lightning shock itself.
And then the demon’s cannon arm blew up, overloaded, sending shrapnel flying in many directions, quite a few of them being the demon’s own. Lilah, actively regenerating at the moment, shrugs them off. The two fairies, with their quick movement and really, really small cross-sections, avoid the metal.
But, in a stroke of bad luck, a sharp-edged chunk of plate embeds itself in Kirb’s own thigh.

Moments later, as the demon finally gives up on trying its best to stay technically alive despite being pulverized, Kirb’s senses are briefly overwhelmed by purple. There’s a sound way too high-pitched for a human to hear – actually, there isn’t. There’s grape sod- nah, that’s not it either.
Actually, the only sense involved is sight. But that’s like 80% of the information he gets, so it’s still pretty good. There’s purple.

Then there’s moderate warmth, wetness, pressure against his back and legs – as he finds himself in the healing pool.

@ Kirb

As the orbs approach the cyborg demon, they light up its torso… from below. The demon has jumped, and glides over the orbs on its still-functional wings, right arm raised, ready to swipe. The unexpected angle of attack causes Mel’s needles to miss the demon’s face, instead hitting the place where its face was a moment ago – its chest. The needles stick in the weakened plating, but don’t achieve too much – they’re light projectiles, and the demon doesn’t seem to care about poison too much.

Then, with a flap of its wings, it dives down, heading straight for Lilah. She swings her vines at it, and they wrap high around his arms, close to the shoulder, and around its outstretched wings, tying the two together. The wings stop being functional when wrapped around the demon’s arms, but they don’t really need to be any more functional either. With a loud thump, the metal bucket-head hits Lilah, shortly followed by the rest of the cyborg, then Lilah gets crushed against the floor as the two continue their downward journey, demon on top. It’s deeply uncomfortable, and if Lilah had bones, she would’ve broken many of them, but she probably doesn’t. The good news is, the cyborg’s slammed against the floor as well, the little amount of padding it had not being all that sufficient, so it’s similarly concussed. Small tendrils of the white mist escape from its mouth, nearly unnoticeable compared to its oddly beeping left arm. It’s visibly melted and broken, courtesy of Pho’s repeated electric attacks and having a pretty hot vine wrapped around it, and the demon’s unlikely to aim a shot with it in its current state – but it’s an undeniable fact that it seems to be charging.

The sludge Mel sprayed down is still on the floor. It’s not close to the demon, though, because it is now roughly where Lilah was standing – had the sludge been there, Lilah would’ve ignited it prematurely and that would’ve ended badly.

Yeah, somewhat. The problem with the freedom phase was that unless you wanted to explain it as ‘oh, I found a way to contact another player’, you didn’t have any other players to interact with. Now it’s arguably more possible, so, I don’t know, find a way to discuss recent events or something…

[I have permission to post this, apparently]

@Kirb

Mel sprays down the mysterious sludge, coating a few square meters of the floor with it. Seems like the beginning of a brainy plan indeed.
The demon begins to breathe out more of that white haze of its. However, that finds itself… not particularly propelled, far from reaching any of the Entities. It does still prove useful – it obscures the demon, so when Pho’s lightning disappears into the haze, he can’t tell just how well that worked. Judging by the audible clang, something fell in there.
A moment later, two thin parallel green beams pierce through the cloud from the inside, leaving a mark in the wall, before sweeping across the room, leaving a superficial mark on Lilah as they sweep across her and missing the other dual Entity entirely. The haze refuses to subsist – man, that demon blows, it’s probably been blowing for the last several seconds!
Lilah is now fired up and ready to whip.

“!not on my watcH” yells Egiool as he throws his remaining Ramjet Balls at the airborne slimes to blow them way away, then he turns back to Holly and her predicament.
“!helpinG” he shouts again, then compresses some more of the surrounding air into four more Ramjet Balls, each taking up two or three arms. Except there isn’t as much air around him at the moment – since there’s a lot of chlorine around him. It gets compressed neatly anyway, even if it takes a bit more effort. With an exclamation of “!awaY”, he leaps closer and punches at the slimes simultaneously, plunging his clenched claws into the slimes past the wrists. Still holding the Ramjet Balls. Which proceed to detonate only then.

Arcady? Oh, it’s Gina.
Yes?
I don’t know what to do!
I inquire without words.
My previous idea was grasping at straws, I’ve got nothing now! What should I do?
Good question. Well, I’ve been looking at the fight for the last however much time it’s been. And before the chlorine cloud obscured them, I could see two more slimes on the other side of this mosh pit. And now I could see beams emerging from behind the cloud, roughly coincident with a sizzle…
Luke’s other Entity must be fighting on the other side over there! I communicate. You’re right, adding to that mess in front of us won’t help, so you should do something there. Brief moment of thought. Block the slimes off!
Gina’s palpably bright mood brightens even more. Got it, and I’ve got just what I need! she communicates, then raises her arms, pointing over the cloud – aside from the lowest pair she’s not using for support, which she places under and ahead of all her other hands. Two pillars of flame erupt from the lower hands, and soon, another huge barrage of wax from all the other hands ensues, immediately catching on fire as it passes through the pillars.
After a moment of that, the silhouette forming over there is quite visible even in the haze.
DAMN, GINA!” bellows the Black Knight, the sword looking small in the hand of his blazing many-ton wax figure. “THESE SLIMES SO PUNY!”
And with that, he lumbers just a single step and topples onto the two slimes, or at least between them and Erubetie, aiming to form a tight seal with the ground if he catches the slimes.

[It picked up the mass that missed Holly and now probably had even more added to it, so it’s pretty big indeed.]

Topic: Kongregate / Are highler levels older accounts more likley to not be banned forever ?

I’ll put it like this myself.

People tend to be people and get older with time. When they join, they should be 13 or more, and they can have attitudes that bring them to being annoying to other people or not. On their way to level 65, they might get banned or not, depending on attitude, and they certainly get older. So, by the time they get to level 65, they’ve more or less proven themselves to not be troublesome, and so the amount of level 65 accounts that gets banned is considerably lower. That throws off the statistics, I’d imagine.

But they should be banned for the same offences – it’s just that it’s more likely that a lower level account is committing them.

.aH .I misseD
I can’t help but feel a little angry about it.
.peeM ?tacticS
We should help Luke’s Entity that’s in there! is the first thing that comes to my mind in this vocal manner.
Egiool sounds – well, not really sounds, we’re not making these – a little angry as well. .no shit ,sherlocK ?anything more specifiC
I don’t know! Get in there and separate them somehow!
.aye ,that’s grand ,good ideA
One upside of the mental conversation is that it goes by much faster than the verbal kind, its statements being more spur-of-the-moment decisions than actually thought-out ones. And that’s what Egiool seems to like. Maybe that’s how he thinks. Either way, thanks to that upside, he barely moved in the time it took us to think of this, and so he still hung in the air – and so he blasts himself right at the slime pile. And Holly. His claws rake against the air, gathering it, compressing it – giving him ammo to blow the slimes away with, that being his simple plan for the foreseeable future.
Gina, meanwhile, produces two things.
One is a jet of high-pressure oil launched from one of her true arms – the uppermost ones. It draws a line from the leftover wax pile from the previous attack to the Black Knight – giving him this much more fuel to build his body with, and getting him closer to the action, so that he may charge in yelling.
The other is several containers made of the thin, brittle, CD-case plastic – filled with pressurized chlorine and pre-launched at pretty high speed at ground right next to the slime pile, to facilitate shattering.
I don’t know if I should be afraid or- actually, I should, definitely. And not show further war movies to beings that can and just indiscriminately have taken ideas from what’s portrayed in them.
Or keep doing so, if it helps them here.

“!humanoidS” exclaims Egiool. Then he blasts himself up into the air and fires an attached chain at each of the four slimes, intending to retract the chains if they hit, pulling himself to the slimes, them to himself, or both, his many clawed hands already contracting and relaxing in preparation.
Gina points all of her arms at Holly, the apparent target of all the enemies, and begins a continuous and massive stream – bigger than some real-life water streams, although it’s no river – of wax, intending to pile a thick layer of it on top and sides of Holly, separating her from her assailants, as well as most of everything else. Gina’s Black Knight, the figure of burning crude wielding the sword, chases after the berserk slimes. “DAMN, GINA!” it shouts. Gina herself considers taking steps towards Holly herself, but it’s not really possible, keeping herself from falling over due to the wax stream’s recoil being an exercise in itself.

“.a clubbinG”
Huh?
Where?
.around uS
Opening my eyes here would probably be a good decision here, so I do – and don’t revel in the sight of the alien landscape. This doesn’t seem like a good place for reveling at all, although I don’t know much about revelry. Around me, in somewhat close quarters, are Egiool and… Luke. That guy. In further quarters, there’s slimes, white ones – two per quarter, in fact. And a hologram of Telerius is there too – actually, that’s probably quite crucial.
As the hologram drones on, I notice something.
You’re out by yourself, Egiool.
.it is for the besT
I wasn’t aware you could do that.
.it was inevitablE
By the end of the speech, I hear one of Luke’s entities referring to me. Us. The entity isn’t one I’ve seen before, either. Two each, she claims. That means we still need one more person. Go, Gina!
Gina appears, donning her unremarkable (aside from this) clothes.
“.so it has come to thiS”
“Yes?” Gina sounds interested. As always.
“.herE .noW”
“You’ll be fighting someone that isn’t him.” I explain.
“Yay!” Gina shouts. “Show me how it’s done, Egiool!”
Egiool stomps around on his head-spikes to face me, then returns to his previous position, in a gesture of us looking at each other for some reason.
Let’s just play along, I guess.
“.sO .first ,you should transforM .follow mE”
Egiool explodes, the metallic foil resembling clothing forming a cloud of chaff that obscures him completely for a brief moment before being pulled back onto his battle form.
“So that’s how it’s done!” exclaims Gina.
“?did you really le-” begins Egiool, then shakes with a cacophony of clattering, jingling and coughing as Gina begins her own transformation. Her ribs – oddly grey ribs – pierce through her wax from inside, her sternum gone somewhere, a gaping hole dripping paint open in her chest, revealing some more wax in various shades of red. The ribs and other bones elongate, form some new joints – the tip of each rib splits in four, forming a rough grasping appendage, one of the fingers being the exposed wick. Except for one, which detaches completely and falls to the ground. Then, very quickly, all the exposed bones are covered with fresh, white wax. Many wicks extend from Gina’s body, all of them ablaze.
While it’s somewhat obligatory to mention there’s no trace of her clothes left on her, it’s also obligatory to mention her anatomy doesn’t have any real points of interest either.
Even with some of her lower arms supporting her, preventing her from falling on her face, she still has like two dozen of them to the sides and front of her body.
Then eyes open on like twenty percent of her body surface.
Now that’s just disturbing.
“.so I just had this ideA ?do we have to take two eacH”
“It was just a proposal by them, I guess.” I state.
“.let’s take four eacH .the same fouR .our fouR”
Gina doesn’t respond. In fact, she hasn’t said a word since her transformation. Instead, she just points her 3rd, 4th, 7th and 8th arms at a slime each, then produces a jet of bona fide napalm from each of them, ignited immediately by the wick-finger. Meanwhile, she points at the same slimes with her 11th, 12th, 15th and her 16th arms, each shooting a jet of capsaicin-imbued oil.
“.I also had this ideA .humans have fun inventionS”
I only notice the slight shift in Egiool’s structure just now, and immediately fall to the ground. There’s… tubes, four of them, each pointing at one of the slimes – I can’t tell they’re pointed more or less at their internal sacs, but they are. Then a small, cylindrical yet pointy, piece of metal is ejected from each tube at supersonic velocities, followed by a not even hissing sound of more compressed air than I thought thinkable. What’s worse, though, is that a second round of the metal-pieces is launched again, their path straight and true.
.and they have sacS .probably bad for them if they get pierceD
Meanwhile, with her 21st arm, Gina throws the fallen rib- it’s a sword now, already on fire – into the air, while her first arm delivers a large amount of crude oil to it. It immediately catches on fire and begins falling towards one of the four slimes, yelling “DAMN, GINA!”
All in all, it’s quite a show, which I can watch from my unsafe position.
.had a lot of time to think about thiS
