Let it be known that I will not post anything more in this game until Knoob posts. My excuse is that my laptop is broken.

Yes, this is a dirty, manipulative, underhanded attempt to take care of Knoob’s inactivity. If you don’t want the game to die, go harass Knoob or something.

No, I’m not kicking him out, because he said he’ll post “eventually”.

I also have access to an iPod and an iPad, but typing on those things are awkward and slow. Unfortunately, I don’t have the new fan yet, so I can’t reliably post in-game. I’m just posting this to let people know that I’m not dead.

And who is still interested in this game? Honestly, this RP doesn’t have a regular routine like my other one, so I’m not sure where to take the story if all current subplots are finished. If too few people are interested, I don’t think it’s worth it to keep this game running.

start up a project to adapt his ideas into an actual game system that could be fun to play.

I tried to do something like that once here, but then later abandoned it because I didn’t think it was going to work out. I hope it turns out better if you guys are trying it.

Lethea

“Yes… Yeeessssss… Ehehehhheheeeehehahehaehehe…” Multiple slime pseudopods extend from Lethea and wrap themselves around Gina, the liquid coating her and seeping into whatever openings there are (MAKE A SEX JOKE AND YOU’RE BANNED FOREVER). When Gina is soaked in Lethea’s magical signature, she finds her senses engulfed by a rather trippy combination of lime green and many other psychedelic colors. The acid sequence only lasts a moment, though. And when it’s over, Gina now finds herself inside Lethea’s lab.

Suffice to say, it looks just like your typical, almost stereotypical, mad scientist’s laboratory.
[Yes, I’m lazy and didn’t want to describe Lethea’s lab. Sue me.]

When Gina is teleported into the laboratory, she appears right above a bath of some glowing, lime green liquid, and immediately falls into said bath. Unlike the slime constituting Lethea’s body, this liquid is not viscous at all, appearing just like colored water. It doesn’t hurt Gina or cause any sort of discomfort, but she does feel a curious tingling all over her wax body, as magic of some sort is being infused into her. And surely enough, the soot stuck to her face is indeed being rapidly dissolved away.

“Now, you just enjoy the bath, dear… Hheheehehehahheahahea…” Lethea cackles, while typing rapidly into a computer next to the bath.

[Sorry for not posting earlier. As I said in my own game threads, I was distracted by a bunch of things, including a new game I recently bought and some school assignments.]

Dragon Mantis

The enemy creature is clearly Air-aligned, judging by its wind-based attacks. But there’s no telling if it’s actually resistant to Air or weak to it. Cautiously, the Dragon Mantis slashes a single weak wind blade at one of the creature’s arm cannons, while still flying at a distance and paying careful attention to evade the creature’s attacks.

[Wind Blade (ranged, 0 energy) at the boss’s arm cannon.]

Iris

“Kyaaaa~!” Iris cries out in obviously fake terror as the wall of red-hot metal shards fly at her with alarming speed. But with even greater speed, her whole body disintegrates into a mass of tiny spheres of multicolored light. The balls of light rapidly shift around to form holes in the roughly humanoid shape that has been Iris a moment ago, precisely allowing all of the metal shards to pass through her without inflicting any damage. One must imagine if some sort of bullet-time and/or precognitive ability was involved, as it’s highly implausible to pull off such a perfect dodge using sheer reflexes alone.

Then she senses the huge beam of green plasma being fired toward her.

Love Sign ‘Master Spark’!” Iris shouts, upon returning to her original form. And a massive beam of rapidly flashing rainbow psychedelic light is fired from her hands to strike the cybernetic demon’s beam head-on. The opposing beam is rapidly swallowed by Iris’s, and her beam seems to have been calculated so that, after neutralizing the opposing beam, it is just wide enough to be completely blocked by the cybernetic demon’s large body, so that no collateral damage is inflicted on anything behind the demon. The demon lets out a deafening howl of pain. After the giant rainbow beam dissipates, ugly burn marks and other signs of damage can be seen all over the demon’s body. But the demon is still very much alive, and very angry.

To make matters worse, the jack-o’-lantern demon suddenly bursts into ghastly purple and green flames; a sharp increase in power from said demon can be felt by all parties present. Its laser beams, previously thinner than human fingers, are now wider than arms, and infused with a ghostly cold fire that rapidly corrodes away concrete like nothing. A volley of these beams are shot toward Iris, and she barely manages to dodge them all, by once again turning into a swarm of light spheres. Not to mention, the five-headed monkey demon is still charging its attack.

Iris glances at Samuel, her expression now a bit more serious. “Hey, senpai!” She shouts. “Let’s combine our attacks!” As she leaps toward Samuel, spheres of blue and indigo energy appear around her, crackling with electrical power, clearly intending to be combined with Samuel’s own electricity.

No, your character doesn’t need to be killed off. He simply won’t be mentioned again in the game after you quit. Since he hadn’t made any personal attachments with any other character, the other characters won’t know or care what happens to him. I’ll cross out your name in the list of players.

And no, you don’t need to write any more posts.

Well, Minnakht was active earlier today, and I talked to Behemoth a couple of days ago, so now they should at least be mildly more active. I’d still prefer if you can go as a group with them, since managing multiple dungeons is more work for me.

Lethea

“Yes, yes, of course I do…” Lethea begins rubbing her hands together. “An acid bath is fine too! Wouldn’t you like your wax to become corrosive? Ehhehheehehhaahaa…” She types a few more things into her hologram. “I changed my mind. You can come to my place after all! My laboratory! I would love to have another guinea pi- Uh, partner! I meant partner. M’yes… Shall we go then?”

“No, no, it’s fine!” I say. “We’re going to have dinner anyways. So we’re either going by ourselves, or with you guys. And given what happened earlier today, I don’t think either of us are feeling like having a romantic dinner date right now…” I look at Johan with a grin, and he chuckles. “So yeah, we’d really like to have a nice chat with some friends. It’s a pretty good way to unwind, you know? Unless you’re busy or have other appointments… I mean, we wouldn’t want to intrude on you or anything.”

So I haven’t been posting lately because of a variety of factors. It was mostly because I got distracted by a game that I recently bought, but I also had some assignments and such.

I can post now, and was going to, but then I saw three things:

1. Kirb. He PM’d me and said he’d be on hiatus for a short while, so I don’t need to continue with his plot thread.

2. gammaflux. Weren’t you going to to a dungeon together with Behemoth and MinKit Minnakht? I didn’t read your post carefully until just now, and I saw that you went off on your own. I’d rather manage one less dungeon than one more, so I’d still rather have you go with the others if possible. I’ll respond after I’ve heard what you have to say about this.

3. BC, Sypher, and Feline. You three are making some progress, but you haven’t actually chosen a dungeon or an objective. I can’t respond until you’ve done that. Please do so as soon as possible.

So yeah, I don’t think I can actually respond to anything until one of the above is resolved.

[Blagh. Sorry for not posting earlier. I got myself a new game, and I had an exam this week, so I was distracted.]

[Also, Kirb. Didn’t I tell you to put a link to Lilah’s profile in your own character’s profile? Now I can’t find Lilah’s profile again.]

Bloodroot

Lilah’s cloak of fire quickly burns away at the red mist in contact with her body. While it isn’t enough to disperse the whole cloud, the gas is no longer able to touch her skin and paralyze her.

However, the gas has ultimately been only a distraction. As Lilah finishes going into her defensive form, the dryad lets go of the bowstring that it has been pouring energy into, letting loose a wooden arrow so deeply red that it appears completely soaked in blood. The arrow blazes toward Lilah’s head with incredible speed, seemingly leaving a trail of blood behind itself.

Lilah’s hastily thrown together barkskin isn’t strong enough to block such a focused shot, and the fire also does little to stop the attack. For an instant, she feels a sharp stabbing pain, as the arrow pierces halfway into her head. The pain then somehow becomes worse; the arrow must be coated in a powerful poison of some sort. Lilah’s whole world begins to feel unsteady.

You are a plant, Bloodroot says into Lilah’s mind. Plants have no brains. Think, Lilah. This doesn’t have to be the end.

[In case it’s not obvious, Bloodroot is saying that Lilah’s pseudo-soul (the center of her consciousness and power) doesn’t have to be located in her head.]

Iris

“I’m sorry, senpai, but I already have someone I like~” Iris squees with an exaggerated blush on her face. “Waaaah!” She then cries out in very obviously fake shock when she sees the huge ball of pale green energy traveling toward her. And she knows that a building full of people is right behind her. A large number of orbs of cyan and sky blue light materialize around her, and launch themselves toward the giant ball of demonic plasma in a pattern that’s almost impossibly complex for something so haphazardly thrown together. The balls of blue light release bursts of icy energy upon impact, and their sum total rapidly neutralizes the ball of plasma without too much difficulty.

Barely a second after Iris has nullified the plasma ball, the jack-o’-lantern begins shooting lasers again, beams of fiery orange, sickly green, and ghastly purple flying out in all directions. This time, they’re too numerous for any human-sized being to dodge. But many glowing circles of multicolored energy appear around Iris, blocking all of the laser beams without fail.

While Iris is defending herself from the jack-o’-lantern’s lasers, the slime demon takes a great leap toward her, a dozen or so appendages extended from its body to form vicious blades. Before it can horribly mutilate Iris with said blades, Iris suddenly disappears in a puff of rainbow sparkles again, reappearing behind the slime demon an instant later. Just as she does so, the slime demon’s lips twist into a nasty smirk, as another dozen or so blades erupt from its back just as Iris appears. Before she can do anything, Iris is impaled by the blades…

Surprise~!” Iris says cheerily.

Suddenly, the Iris that is impaled by the slime demon explodes, having been an illusion, releasing several orbs of blue and indigo energy that crash into the slime demon’s body and deliver powerful electric shocks on contact. The real Iris then lets go of her invisibility, appearing to the slime demon’s left, and lets loose a slew of red and orange spheres while the demon is still paralyzed. The spheres explode, and release powerful flames that consume the demon completely, quickly incinerating it until only ashes remain.

“You okay there, senpai?” Iris looks at Samuel and asks, grinning brightly.



Lilia

My eyes widen when I see Aranoc’s ghost partner.

“Oh my God. Are you a miko? A real one?” I blurt out. On second thought, she could just be a modern one, but… Given her antiquated way of speaking, and the aura she gives off… “Which time period are you from? Which shrine?” I grab her hands in excitement; my fingers phase through hers a bit, but magic still allows us to physically interact. “Oh, I know! You should do a Hakurei Reimu cosplay! I bet you’d-”

I’m pulled back to reality when Johan gently puts a hand on my shoulder. Turning around, I see that the healer corps have arrived, exorcists that specialize in healing. The auras of white and other light-colored energies around them are comforting, but their faces are grim.

“How’s the situation?” I ask, concerned.

“Not good,” their leader says, frowning. I don’t think I’ve seen him before, but it sounds like he knows who I am. Most exorcists do. “The demons are gone for now, but whatever happened a few minutes ago made the citizens… upset, to say the least. It’s turning into a riot out there. At the rate this’s going, some of them might turn into demons too…”

I feel my stomach sink. Goddammit. Even when the demons are gone, the situation is just getting worse… But suddenly, an idea pops up in my head. “Can you lend me some of your energy, Johan?” I ask him.

“Hmm? What for?” There’s no reluctance in his voice, but there is concern.

“To calm people down,” I say. “Trust me. I know what I’m doing.”

“All right,” he nods without a second thought. A wave of relief washes over me at the complete trust he has in me, giving me confidence I might not have otherwise had. Then I feel his hands on my shoulders, and his energy begins to flow into me. For a moment, I just bask in the warmth and sturdy strength of his power…

Then I get to work.

A clone of me, composed of golden light, steps out of my body and rises into the air. It goes higher and higher, until it’s about as high up as that black-robed demon was from earlier. And its appearance quickly changes. Its physical features become exactly like mine, but its outfit becomes an elegant, flowing white dress decorated by shades of gold, pink, and sky blue. A pair of large feathery wings fan out behind its back, the feathers white as snow yet glowing with an inner golden sheen. And a soft, golden white light begins to expand from it, wider and wider, until it’s more than a hundred kilometers wide, basking almost the whole sky in a warm glow. But no, the light doesn’t hurt the eyes at all, instead appearing perfectly gentle and comforting when you look at it.

As Tiphareth’s angelic light envelops Chicago, I begin to send a calm, soothing psychic energy through the light, bathing the inhabitants of Chicago in its warmth. It probably won’t calm them down completely… but it should mitigate the worst of their fear and worry. And I begin to softly speak through the clone, telepathically broadcasting my voice and the angel-like image I’ve chosen to everyone like the demon had done earlier.

Hello, everyone. I’m Hoshi no Lilia. Many of me might know me as an idol, but right now, I speak on behalf of Ordo Exorcistae. The group of demons making that announcement earlier… They were completely overestimating themselves. Unlike what they’d want you to believe, you’re in no danger. We’ll take care of them quickly. It’s our duty to protect you from demons, and I promise that you’re safe. Don’t worry, everything will be all right.

After the whole thing is done, and the golden light fades away, Johan stares at me with a slightly impressed look on his face. I give him a smile. Okay, sure, maybe I didn’t get official authority to represent Ordo Exorcistae in a speech. But calming down the citizens are important; I’m sure Lucius will understand. After a quick long-ranged magical scan, my plan had mostly worked, from the looks of things. I don’t sense nearly as much fear or anger in my vicinity anymore, and most of the rioting seem to have stopped. Phew…

Now, we just have to follow up on the promise I just made. That’s kind of the hard part. But the citizens don’t have to know that. Calming them down was the most important short-term goal, and at least that’s done now.

“Wow,” the lead healer says, and they all stare at me in amazement.

“Ehehe…” I let out a little laugh. “I did the best I could. Hopefully that was enough?”

“Yeah, it was,” the lead healer says, relief written plainly on his face. “You probably saved a ton of anguish and lives just now. Now, please, go get some rest. You’ve done enough work here. We can take over here now.”

“Alright, thank you,” I smile and nod. Then I look at Johan. “Wanna go grab something to eat?” Though technically we don’t need to eat anymore, we both still like to maintain a human way of living. Besides, delicious food is delicious. No way I’m going to give that up.

“Heh, assuming there are even any restaurants left after that whole clusterfuck,” Johan chuckles.

“Hey, Chicago is a big city,” I retort and grin. “The whole city couldn’t have all turned into a warzone.”

“Then clearly there wasn’t enough dakka.”

“Is there ever any?” I laugh. And I look at Aranoc and his ghost partner. Her name is… Setsuna, isn’t it? I think I heard Aranoc call her that. Cyrus has left already, which is a shame, but Aranoc and Setsuna are still here. “Hey, you guys wanna have dinner with us?” I ask. “That was a pretty big fight, and superheroes need energy too!”

Bloodroot

Lilah attempts to dodge the volley of razor leaves with a flip. However, the leaves were traveling in a slanted direction, rather than straight down. If Lilah flipped away from the dryad, she would have easily moved out of the leaves’ paths; but she dodged toward the dryad instead. Not all of the leaves hit her, but a few do, the blades piercing rather painfully into her back. After an instant of pain, a numbness begins to seep from the wounds, likely caused by poison of some sort. Thankfully, Lilah herself is resistant to poisons, so the numbness is not yet affecting her much.

Lilah launches her own volley of plant projectiles, these flaming, toward the dryad. The dryad attempts to dodge to the right out of the way, but it is too close to Lilah to dodge them all; a few thorns bury themselves in the dryad’s left arm. As the dryad continues to back away from Lilah, the fire on its arm begins to spread. But before the flames can spread to the rest of the dryad’s body, the afflicted arm suddenly detaches itself and falls to the ground; a new arm then grows out of the shoulder stump in seconds.

With its other hand, the dryad conjures a fist-sized red fruit and tosses it toward Lilah. Rather than hitting her, the fruit falls to the ground under Lilah’s feet, and explodes into a thick red powdery mist that almost completely obscures her vision. Where the mist touches her skin, Lilah feels a similar numbness as the kind caused by the dryad’s razor leaves. From inside the mist, Lilah can barely make out anything at all, much less see what the dryad is doing.



Fury

Not even bothering to dodge, Fury simply floats there and lets Holly’s dark beam strike him. Or, rather, strike the barrier of white electricity that bursts into existence in front of him. Even though his power is scaled down to roughly Holly’s level, Holly is so exhausted that her beam is nullified with ease.

And then Fury makes his real attack.

Half a dozen strands of what appear to be liquid metal snake out from both of Fury’s hands, each strand crackling with icy blue lightning. Via cold-induced superfluidity, the metal strands wrap themselves around Holly with incredible speed. And via cold-induced superconductivity, the icy lightning courses through the metal into Holly’s body. The electric shock paralyzes her, and the coldness causes layers of ice to rapidly form over her body, preventing Holly from shedding barkskin again. And the metal strands themselves harden into blades. Within seconds, Holly is electrocuted, frozen, sliced to pieces, and shattered. Finally, the metal and lightning morph themselves into an explosion of white light that engulfs Holly’s remains. When it fades, nothing left of her can be seen.

Fury turns to Erubetie with the same cold glare. “Well? Do you want some too?

All writers start out inexperienced, and I was no different. However, this game is not for extremely inexperienced writers to gain their first bits of writing experience. I’m not looking for incredibly skilled authors or anything, but I want everyone who joins my game to have a decent amount of writing experience. Enough experience to create and develop decently consistent characters and storylines. If I don’t think you have enough writing experience to contribute meaningfully to my game, I suggest you go find and join some other RP where the standards aren’t as strict. Not every game host is a stuck-up elitist like me.

And no, Kirb, I haven’t forgotten about your characters. I’ll parse your post shortly.

Fury

Luke, Holly, and Erubetie find themselves in, at first glance, what appears to be a swamp of some sort… Though the heat and dryness in the air immediately tells them that it’s anything but an ordinary swamp on Earth. The soil is a milky, faintly luminescent white, large swathes of it soaked in some viscous liquid that is decidedly not water (MAKE A SEX JOKE AND I’LL FUCKING KILL YOU). A red glow seems to emanate from somewhere deep underground, strong enough to give various patches of the place a red tint. Spheres of glowing flames of varying sizes, of red and yellow hues, float in midair, resembling will-o’-the-wisps or similar types of ghost lights, except the heat radiating from them is very real. Other similar balls of fire seem to be growing from the stems of alien plants. The sky is covered by a dense canopy of somewhat rotten-looking and mossy trees, of mostly green and white colors, with masses of vines connecting them. Quite a significant portion of these plants are on fire, though they don’t seem to be burning away at any noticeable rate.

Before Luke and his Entities, floating in midair, is Fury. With his arms folded, he glares coldly, and says nothing.
