Morney Omaba
The irony of this situation occurs to me – the one who would enslave others has himself become a slave. I think it serves him right, in the end. I’d have answered Mark’s question, but he’s apparently been pushed away from me, so… hmm.
Well, I have an army of mutants at my command, and there’s no possibility of retrieving those chemicals again. I think I’m done here. Commanding the king to throw up a wall of stone under myself and the other minions once we move outside the building, from the building wall to the wall of the asylum courtyard, I run to the nearest window, open it, then leap out, landing on said stone wall, and running off to the nearest prison wall across that stone wall, swiftly followed by my army of minions. Once we’re all on the stone wall and at the asylum wall, I have the king build a ramp down from the wall to the ground on the other side, as well as a ramp over the wall itself to prevent any razor wire defenses from cutting us up; then, I simply slide down the ramp, followed by my army of minions. Lastly, once we’re outside the asylum, I have the king collapse the ramp and wall to prevent anyone else from following us. Wouldn’t want any inmates getting out, after all.
And that’s it. I’m out.
Walking away from the asylum at last, unmolested in any sense of the word, I briefly wonder what the political prospects are for somebody with an army of mutant ratmen at his command…

[And I’m done. Don’t care if you randomly decide to kill Morney after this; I’m finished here. I highly recommend that nobody else makes any further posts, since Gonkey is not a good GM, and his setting has been long-since proven to be less than well-formed. gg scrub]

So you admit that the reason you had the vats destroyed was a meta-decision, and not one with any sense derived from within the setting. Yep, I think I’m done here. I am officially resigning from this game, and would highly recommend that other players cease to post in it as well, as the GM is not good at GMing, and the setting in general is poorly-designed. I will write Morney’s exit post in short order.

1. No, you are not the god of insanity. If anything, you’re a bad GM, since, like I said, you would not have used that against me if your precious GMPC hadn’t been mind controlled into Morney’s slave. Rule 1 of good GMing: do not get attached to your NPCs; the players are very likely to kill them if you push them above their station as plot drivers the way you did with Its. Rule 2 of good GMing: don’t punish characters for their actions unless it makes sense; the mice immediately attacking Morney for enslaving their king makes sense, the vats and their contained potions abruptly being destroyed through meta-fiat does not. Thus, said vats should be intact, and not destroyed as a result of somebody “forgetting” to do something that should be a given act on the grounds that, since somebody did a bad thing to your precious GMPC, nobody could have magic any more.
2. And as I said above, if you put on your big boy pants and stop being a bad GM, they should still be completely intact at the moment.

On that topic, now that the king is dead, we have no way to know for sure which chemical does what, now. So their destruction might be a bit of overkill.

He’s not dead, he’s been mutated into a beast and enslaved to Morney’s command. In any case, I have my ways of figuring out how to establish the effects of each potion, if I can’t just command the king to drop one of those True Seeing ice cubes in each one and do it that way.

Also, I think others (except Kanji) won’t agree because you ruined their chances of getting magic. Let’s continue the argument in the discussion thread, please.]

1. Closing the taps should be a given. It’s basic logic that, if you turn a tap on to fill a container, you then turn the tap off afterward, especially if the tap connects to a vat of chemicals for which there is ultimately a limited supply. More importantly, you wouldn’t be making that argument if I hadn’t fucked over your precious GMPC, making this a meta issue that shouldn’t be relevant in the first place.
2. No, see, if this goes the way I think it should (i.e. without meta B.S. coming into play), what was ruined was the ability to escape via the Sewers, and nothing else. The vat of magic potion would still be present, and therefore people would still be able to get magic, for however long it’s still present before you go full spiteful GM and destroy them all.

[Bullshit. No sane person would leave a tap full of unidentified chemicals running freely, and Morney clearly isn’t insane. Don’t punish me for your own foolishness in how you run your GMPCs. Anyone else agree with that?]

[I had a theory that you would turn this into yet another magical realm of yours. Mouse king couldn’t be allowed to do his shifty slavery stuff. If anyone’s an asshole, it was him all along.]

Morney Omaba
And their true colours show at last. Let’s see how organised those damn mice are without their king.
‘You three,’ I say, pointing at three of my new mutating and rapidly-growing beasts (sans mouse king; I need him for this next bit), ‘kill the wizard mice. The rest of you, follow me.’ That said, I run away, away from the zombie virus and the acid, back to the Sewer entrance, and begin my climb up and out, followed by the other forty eight-odd beast mice; once they’re all out of the sewer and the cell, I order the mouse king to collapse the Sewer entrance with his Earth magic to ensure we aren’t followed, then, once that’s done, order my new army to the lab, to get to those chemicals as quickly as possible. There’s no way the mice can transmit information that quickly, after all, and the more of each substance I can gather, the better.

‘Hmm. Interesting…’
With that said, I pick up the loss of free will potion, then, without warning, pour both that and the beast potion in my other hand on to the mouse king and any nearby mice, emptying both two litre bottles entirely.
‘You now do my bidding, and mine alone, mice.’

[I am going to be blunt, here: you set yourself up for this by making your GMPC so shifty, Gonkey, and I will actively boycott this game if you B.S. him out of his fate, as I do not believe your mouse king has any reasonable way in which to protect against this sudden turn of events. To clarify:
1. There is no reasonable way he could have predicted Morney’s decision on this front, and therefore no reasonable way he could have come up with a pre-emptive defense toward this event;
2. He would not have the speed or reflexes needed to dodge the liquid or bring up any form of magic-based defense against such a wide and substantial splash area, especially since he is pre-occupied with making pieces of dirt orbit him and he only just acquired said magic a few moments ago, and is therefore completely lacking in experience needed to pull off something of the sort with no warning;
3. Nor would any other mice, or in my opinion the PCs, have the reflexes to intercept such an assault;
4. Even if other mice do get in the way of the potion spills for their king, that’s a full four litres of liquid being spilled, which would be functionally impossible to block for such small creatures, and should be way more than enough to allow both potion effects to take effect on a small creature like a mouse, i.e. the mouse king;
5. You yourself just confirmed that multiple potions can take effect on one creature, and therefore that, having drunk the magic potion- which, as you stated, only prevents further magic potion doses from having any effect- the mouse king can still be affected by any of the other potions;
6. Having apparently only just acquired access to these chemicals, there is no reasonable way that the king could have pre-vaccinated himself against the effects of being suddenly drenched in them nor prepared magic- or technology-based measures to prevent them from taking effect;
7. Having stated explicitly that the mouse king and any other mice affected by the potion are under Morney’s control only, it stands to reason that somebody else, e.g. another mouse or other PCs, attempting to snap them out of it by saying “you’re no longer under Morney’s control” or any similar statements would not work, as their order to not be under Morney’s control would be pre-empted by Morney’s order that they only do what Morney says, which would exclude orders from others that attempt to free them from Morney’s exclusive control;
8. There is no evidence that the effects of any potion can be resisted by any means, so your saying “mouse king resists because his mind is strong” would count as B.S., so far as I see it.
I have a variety of other counter-arguments against other supposedly-legitimate methods of preventing this from happening, which I will read out as and when you make any attempts to counter this. The long and the short of it is, the mouse king is screwed. I think everyone else would agree with me on that front, given the extensive reasoning behind why he’s screwed?]

Well, they dropped everything like fools when faced with apparent royalty. Honestly, I’m not overly surprised, considering the reputation most politicians have. Still, I know which potions are which now.
‘So, mouse king,’ I begin, walking over to and observing the other four potions for the moment whilst keeping the last, still-uncoloured potion in hand, ‘it is, I take it, the case that any of these potions will work on any living being? Since you ingested the magic-granting potion without apparent ill effect, after all, I can only presume that they’d also work on other beings too, like cats, dogs, birds, monkeys, and so on. And for that matter, would it be the case that, for instance, I could drink the magic potion, zombification potion, and beast potion, and they’d all function correctly on me as intended? I can see benefits to that sort of transformation, after all, assuming my mind remains intact after the fact.’

‘Anna,’ I say, shutting the book and stowing it in one of my larger jacket pockets as I calmly walk over to her, ‘I meant what I said before: even if the mouse king doesn’t agree to show you and Mark the way out, I’d be more than glad to show you both the way myself. Besides, I do have a contingency plan. Don’t worry. Everything’s going to be fine. That said, I do need help carrying all these potions. I only have two hands, after all.’ With that said, I hand one of the potions back to her, then grab the other and head over to Kanji with it, holding it out for him to take. ‘Now, since you apparently also have stock in how this all goes, I suggest you also take a potion. It doesn’t strictly matter which one is which; I’m sure the king will be able to inform us appropriately. And, ah, don’t let go of it unless I say so.’

[By the way, I don’t think you should have him spit in the potions to determine their colour, Gonkey, or put any other bodily excretions in there for that matter. That’s pretty gross. I’m just saying.]

‘Oh. Yes, I think I probably have your chemicals,’ I say as I take the book from him. ‘You can join us in their transportation, if you like. Political suicide is a definite “no”, though it is through political maneuvering on the part of my opponents that I am now here. As for these two, I couldn’t say.’ Questions answered, I open the book up and begin my previously-stated search for how to use these potions effectively.

Oh, look at that, this guy has the book after all. Giving one of the bottles over to Anna (1), I walk over to the apparent journalist. Oh, I should have brought my microphone with me. Then again, no speakers, and only one person to talk to, but I’m kind of mad with him for taking the book regardless, so let’s see if we can’t make this go my way.
‘I am Morney Omaba, you may recall me from certain political campaigns, maybe you don’t, but that’s beside the point. Mister Shameimaru, you have something I’m looking for: that book on asylum chemicals. Now, I’m willing to offer you answers to your questions, but I’d like to reacquire that book you’ve been carrying around first. There is information in there that I would like to be aware of.’ I hold my free hand out to receive the book in question, answers primed and ready; if he hands it over, I first take a look at the book to try and figure out the intricacies of how the potions work, whether or not they have to be ingested to take effect or whether spilling them on somebody will do the job well enough, and so on and so forth.

[Thank you, Gonkey.]

Morney Omaba
Brilliant, let’s see, we have the magic book, the satanic ritual books…
…where’s the book on chemicals.
WHERE THE FUCK IS THE BOOK ON CHEMICALS SOMEBODY ELSE HAS BEEN IN HERE GOD DAMN IT.
I take a deep breath to try and compose myself. Address the question first…
‘Madam… I don’t think I ever got your name, I am Morney Omaba… with all due respect, I am not using you as a delivery girl. Merely for the purposes of holding. You may leave the pot of chemicals with Mark and I and leave, but I believe you are more respectful of others than that. I’m sure the, ahem, mouse king will be more than willing to allow you to come with me after our task is complete. And if he is not, then I would certainly offer that much to you and Mark for your assistance.’
And now back to the problem at hand… the book on chemicals is gone, meaning somebody has been in here and taken it with them. Is it a good idea to go on a rampage around the asylum to try and find it again? Not in the least. Unfortunately, my best option seems to be to take the hit, and hope the king knows how they work. With a sigh, and a muttered suggestion to Mark that ‘you probably shouldn’t read the satanic rituals book’, I head out again, standing just outside the library door to wait for the girl and Mark to follow on.

[Ahahaha, no you didn’t. Morney gave two bottles to Mark, and one to Anna. At no point did he get rid of all the bottles, and he explicitly stated that the mouse guide wasn’t necessary anyway. Therefore, there would be no reason for Anna or Mark to go to the mouse king, since they’d presumably both be following Morney, who was headed to the library. And, by the by, Xan, you’ll probably want Anna to head there as well, since it’s been established that both Mark and Anna are following Morney.]

Well, that hasn’t gone as swimmingly as I might’ve hoped. I suspect the mice will be present even if this scout leaves, so I lean in toward mister Green and quietly say, in as soothing and diplomatic a tone as I can, ‘My intent, Mark, is to take these chemicals into the vicinity of the Mouse King, after performing extensive research on them to ensure that they’re in safe hands. Rest assured, all will be well if what I am aiming for works out.’ I continue past Mark, still heading toward cell 285 and its hidden library.

I wondered if that might be the case, mouse. Interesting, moreso because of how admittedly suspicious Mark and the girl consider the scenario… which it is, to be quite frank, and I don’t think they think I think that. But I think I’ve just had an idea. I take some containers, and fill them appropriately with the fluid from each container, then hand two of them to Mark (3, 5) and one to the new girl (2), with the instruction: ‘Follow me with those in hand, but don’t let go of them unless I say so.’ Then, taking the last two containers (1, 4), I ask the mouse if I and the two people I’ve pressganged into helping can make a detour to cell 285 before we actually visit the king proper. ‘I know where to find him, after all, and we’ll be there soon enough; we can probably make it back there without your help.’ Regardless of answer, I then begin walking to cell 285, gesturing for Mark and the other girl to follow on.

Before anybody freaks out at the talking mouse, I say ‘Alright, well, what can I do to acquire this substance, which apparently changes the colour of all these fluids into something that can be observed by the human eye? Because that seems like a very unlikely coincidence.’

Courteously and diplomatically avoiding answering Mark’s question, I note the arrival of a new person, presumably sane, as well as the fact that most inmates are avoiding the laboratory. A safe haven, then, if I ever find myself being chased.
’I’m here due to corrupt political motions on the part of my competitors. Morney Omaba, at your service, and you are…?’
Whilst saying this, I keep an eye on the chemicals, trying to figure out which is which. The purple one is obviously the purple acid the book talked about, but what were the other ones…? Maybe I could use colour to determine which is which, I’m sure the book on chemicals mentioned colour somewhere…

‘Your advice is noted. And, well, uh… here. This lab. I’m looking for a particular something which I think might help in escaping this asylum, and, uh, this is where I was told to head out to to retrieve it.’ As I say all this, I continue looking around the room in search of both the chemicals in question and any secret rooms or whatnot that might be present.

GAHOHBUH-’ I cry out as somebody places their hand on me, quickly leaping out of their reach (and not into any tables, I might add). After a moment, I realise it was the same guy from before, standing outside the lab. No longer idle, I suppose… I brush myself down, and try to reclaim some of my composure.
’It’s not particularly polite to sneak up on a man, you know. I might’ve knocked something over. Then what?’ I take a couple of deep breaths, then sigh.
‘But where are my manners?’ i continue with a polite smile. ‘I am Morney Omaba, and you are…?’

Oh, hey, it’s a person. He… doesn’t look like an inmate. He’s not dressed like one, at any rate. He is, however, staring idly into space, so for the time being, I side-step around him and enter the lab, keeping an eye open for both actual inmates and secret areas that might be in this location, as well as the chemicals that currently hold my interest. I do wonder what would happen if I drank more than one elemental potion at once… would I get multiple powers? Could it be that taking different types of potion in sequence will grant me more types of magic? I have no idea. I’ll need to read up on that when I get back to 285’s knowledge store. But for now, keep an eye out for the things I mentioned. M’yes.
