[23:22] <Sailor Nereid> There's an understatement.
[23:22] * Sailor Nix heads over to the hole that Vyle had used to escape through. Maybe there's a clue hiding down there?
[23:26] <Neo Sailor Uranus> Ugh. We need to start tieing him up before he can escape
[23:27] *** The only thing you'll find, Nix, is that the hole got sealed up as soon as he dropped down it. Also, there's a metal plate on the ground near the hole. Perhaps it was dropped while the thieves were moving the crates underground?
[23:29] * Sailor Nix takes a closer look at this plate.
[23:33] * Sailor Nereid pulls out some kind of dataslate and begins looking something over as she collects the Warbot parts.

[23:34] <Sailor Nix> (Let's see if this thing could tell us something we don't already know.)
[23:37] <Capt. David O`Cain> Too many "could-a would-a should-a" to even count.
[23:38] * Sailor Nix adds the plate to her collection of parts. In the meantime, Nereid is busy tapping away at the slate.
[23:38] <Sailor Nereid> C'mon, come to momma....
[23:47] <Sailor Nereid> Think this is gonna take a while. What say we split?
[23:48] <Capt. David O`Cain> A good idea. Hopefully we'll get answers soon.
[23:49] <Capt. David O`Cain> Oh, in case you hadn't checked, I gave you and the Senshi VIP tickets to next Saturday's concert, Andy. Costumes encouraged.
[23:49] <Sailor Nereid> We'll know here soon. Vyle will never see this coming~
[23:49] <Capt. David O`Cain> Heh, let's hope so.
[23:50] <Sailor Nix> Time to head home. I got the parts collected, and I found some plate one of 'em dropped. Hopefully it'll give us more answers to work with.
[23:50] <Capt. David O`Cain> Until we meet again.
[23:50] *** Capt. David O`Cain [] has left #suburbansenshi3 (Let's get going.)

[19:13] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte>
[19:17] * Sean Collins comes above deck, helping a very wobbly Rhea out to get some fresh air.
[19:19] <Rhea> Travel on the water...this is...very bad...
[19:19] <Haru E> ....guessing they didn't have many boats on Ea.
[19:19] *** the sky is fairly dark and cloudly at the moment....which is interesting....since it should be perfectly clear today
[19:20] <Sean Collins> No, they mostly avoided large bodies of water because it was too dangerous.
[19:21] <Haru E> Well, not gonna lie, I'm expecting things to get a lot rougher.
[19:21] <Sean Collins> Hang in there Rhea. Its safe on the ship. You just need to get your "Sea Legs".

[19:49] <The Magistra> Hmmm?
[19:49] * @Paisley Pythia Peinforte tries to see what it is
[19:50] *** it's hard to pick out enitrely really....but you see a man sitting in a chair typing on a keyboard at a computer, wrapped in a blanket....he pauses for a moment then glances up...he might know you're watching but he can't see you and just goes back to typing before the scene fades like it was never there
[19:51] <The Magistra> ....The heck?
[19:52] <Haru E> this about to get Meta?

[19:53] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> Let's just say it's one level of reality breaking into another.

[20:12] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> this is some other kind of stillness.
[20:12] <D. Kakaku> not exactly.

[20:24] <Sean Collins> Its like something is dampening our abilities, for sure. Like...some sort of Dead zone.
[20:24] <The Magistra> ...Is this place on any map?
[20:24] *** you also see a vast amount of wreckage around you...hundreds of thousands of ships from across history.........
[20:24] <Sean Collins> Well, the boat was spinning, how can we tell which direction we went?
[20:24] *** one of which is the one Kaelyn was on
[20:25] <Haru E> Dead zone sounds appropriate. And check that out--- that one looks most recent.
[20:25] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> That was Kaelyn's cruise ship ><
[20:25] *** the one that kaelyn was on looks to have been torn apart..though most of the structure is still intact
[20:25] <D. Kakaku> It's like someone's own personal graveyard and museum
[20:26] <Sean Collins> Let's move
[20:26] * Sean Collins heads toward Kaelyn's ship
[20:26] * @Paisley Pythia Peinforte heads over to the ship to check for any signs of life
[20:27] <Haru E> That gash.... something ripped through the side of that one. Natural or not, though....
[20:27] * Haru E heads over to the ship as well.
[20:27] * The Magistra follows paise and scans it with her gunblade's sonics.
[20:27] *** you get there rather time at all..though you saw the ship to be a few miles away
[20:27] *** the gunblade reads nothing...or at the very's not functioning
[20:27] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> ...This place really is disorienting.
[20:28] <Haru E> It's like what universal laws we know of mean nothing here.
[20:28] <The Magistra> ...My swords on the fritz or something.
[20:28] <Sean Collins> Did we run to get here?
[20:28] <Rhea> I was sure we walked...
[20:28] <D. Kakaku> are we in escherland?
[20:29] *** now that you're can see the ship isn't just torn looks like it's been there for centuries......
[20:29] <The Magistra> ...How long were we walking?
[20:29] <Sean Collins> This isn't long has she been gone?
[20:29] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> ...s[BLEEP]t.
[20:30] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> s[BLEEP]ts[BLEEP]ts[BLEEP]t
[20:30] <Haru E> More and more I'm becoming convinced this place isn't playing by the laws we know of. Let's keep moving.
[20:30] * @Paisley Pythia Peinforte looks like she's trying to hold herself together
[20:30] * @Paisley Pythia Peinforte keep moving
[20:30] * The Magistra walks over to paise. "I'm just as worried as you are. She's my family too. We'll find her. I promise"
[20:31] *** are you trying to get on the ship y/n
[20:31] * @Paisley Pythia Peinforte nods
[20:31] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> I think we should still check it out
[20:32] <The Magistra> We have no other leads.
[20:32] <Sean Collins> Right.
[20:32] <Haru E> We might find something of use on there.
[20:32] *** there is a rusty gangway onto the ship
[20:33] * The Magistra checks to make sure it's stable
[20:33] *** it's stable enough
[20:34] * @Paisley Pythia Peinforte makes her way up a little heedlessly
[20:35] * Sean Collins follows with Rhea
[20:35] *** each movement on the ship makes a creaking noise....which echoes across the space
[20:36] * D. Kakaku waits a bit.
[20:36] *** the top is utterly quiet.....utterly deserted it seems.........
[20:37] <Sean Collins> Do we know where her cabin was?
[20:37] * @Paisley Pythia Peinforte tries ot check the ewmail stored on her phone
[20:38] * The Magistra tilts her head to think back and see if Sis ever mentioned it.
[20:38] *** your phone is dead, paisley
[20:38] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> Blast. Phone's dead. I don't recall the cabin number.
[20:40] * @Paisley Pythia Peinforte closes her eyes and tries to reach Exeter over the connexxion to have him check the email back at home and get her the cabin number
[20:40] <Sean Collins> So we're not sure then?
[20:40] * @Paisley Pythia Peinforte holds up her hand in a "Wait" gesture
[20:41] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> Trying something else.
[20:41] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> ...202
[20:41] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> it was cabin 202.
[20:42] * @Paisley Pythia Peinforte opens her eyss after thanking Exeter
[20:42] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> ...sometimes it's good to have a partner.
[20:42] <Sean Collins> Cool, let's go.
[20:42] * @Paisley Pythia Peinforte starts looking for a way to cabin 202
[20:43] * Haru E looks for a general map. A ship as big as this one has to have a few somewhere around here.
[20:43] <D. Kakaku> second floor, suite 2, huh?
[20:44] <The Magistra> It's a boat, it may litteraly be room 202 depending on the size...
[20:44] *** the map is cracked and broken....but 202 is on the uppear part....not that far away
[20:45] *** it's actually around the corner from the captain's quarters
[20:45] * @Paisley Pythia Peinforte heads for it
[20:45] * Sean Collins follows.
[20:45] * D. Kakaku isn't far behind.
[20:46] *** the door to cabin 202 is half open...
[20:46] <Sean Collins> (( generally, you can determine a room on a ship based on the "Tac" number, which is generally formatted as 02-202-3-E ))
[20:46] * Haru E brings up the rear, eyes (all 20 of 'em) on alert for any clues.
[20:48] * Sean Collins cautiously pushes the door open...
[20:48] * The Magistra is sticking close to Paisely
[20:48] *** it's dark in the room....
[20:48] * The Magistra tries to conjure a mage light
[20:49] * Sean Collins tries to use his flame as best he can to provide some lighting...
[20:49] * @Paisley Pythia Peinforte ties to make a flame in her hand by pryokinesis
[20:49] *** the light allows you to see...........the wall covered in streached and cracked face hallowed out....the rest of the wall covered in arms growing out of it and bones
[20:50] * @Paisley Pythia Peinforte audibly gasps
[20:50] <Sean Collins> What manner of horror is this?
[20:50] * @Paisley Pythia Peinforte tries ot see if any fo the faces are KAelyn's
[20:50] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> This is the kind of s[BLEEP]te her worthless husband gets into.
[20:51] *** as you get closer paisley....something goes crack under your foot
[20:51] <D. Kakaku> is this a developer's secret or something?
[20:51] * @Paisley Pythia Peinforte jerks back as if bitten and takes a look
[20:51] *** on the a locket...with a photo of paisley in's the locket that belongs to's now cracked...and it has blood on it
[20:52] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> ......................
[20:52] <The Magistra> ....
[20:52] * @Paisley Pythia Peinforte picks it up and grasps it in her hand
[20:52] <D. Kakaku> .......oh my.... god........
[20:52] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> Tch.
[20:52] * @Paisley Pythia Peinforte forces herself to stay calm
[20:53] <The Magistra> ...Danny. Quiet please.
[20:53] <Sean Collins> So you think...this has something to do with her husband?
[20:53] * @Paisley Pythia Peinforte pockets the locket.
[20:53] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> Not really.
[20:53] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> But I s[BLEEP]t on him every chance I can.
[20:53] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> It's how I express my approval.
[20:53] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> Or something.
[20:53] * @Paisley Pythia Peinforte looks to see if there;s a blood trail.
[20:54] *** there is a thin blood trail
[20:55] <Haru E> Let's see where this leads.
[20:55] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> ...This way
[20:57] *** the trail is leading off into the distance towards one of the torn parts of the ship
[20:58] <The Magistra> ...Ike came with her on this trip right?
[20:58] * @Paisley Pythia Peinforte follows the trail relentlessly
[20:59] <D. Kakaku> no, I think it was Minako.
[20:59] * D. Kakaku follows.
[21:00] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> No, it was just Kae
[21:02] <Haru E> Kae mentioned that this was supposed to be a "time off" thing for her, that whole self-discovery thing. Doesn't it figure that she tries to take a break and this s[BLEEP]t happens?
[21:03] <Rhea> Eek!
[21:03] *** a rather large...mass of tneticles has gotten a hold of Rhea
[21:04] <Sean Collins> Rhea?!
[21:04] * The Magistra spin on a dime to look at Rhea. And then charges the mass with her sword drawn.
[21:05] * Sean Collins jumps out of the room and tries to summon his rapier!
[21:05] *** the rapier is summoned!
[21:05] * Haru E quickly eyes the mass for any possible point of origin. Find the origin, find a good point of attack!
[21:05] *** the creature is a mass of tenticles and eyes
[21:06] * Sean Collins charges in, aiming for one of the eyes!
[21:06] *** the eye is pierced, spraying out blue goop...while Magistra manages to impale it, forcing it to jump off rhea and flee
[21:06] *** the thing..whatever it was..flees into the distance
[21:07] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> The bloody hell was THAY
[21:07] <Haru E> Looked like something from a B-movie.
[21:07] <The Magistra> It wasn't one of Sis
[21:07] <The Magistra> *Sis's familers
[21:08] * Haru E does a double check to ensure her weaponry is on her. If that thing decides to come back for a second round, or if there's more of 'em....
[21:08] <D. Kakaku> C movie at best
[21:10] *** the boat suddenly it starts to crack apart
[21:11] * Haru E quickly works to stabilize herself. "Guys, boat's making like a banana."
[21:12] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> Blast! We have to leg it!
[21:12] * Rhea huddles in Sean's arms
[21:12] <Sean Collins> Come on Rhea, we gotta get out of here!
[21:13] * @Paisley Pythia Peinforte tries ot make her way out and follow the blood trial
[21:13] *** as you leave...the ship...turns to dust..and bone
[21:13] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> ....
[21:14] <The Magistra> ....
[21:14] <Sean Collins> What is with this place?
[21:15] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> Everything is just topsy-turvy.
[21:16] <Sean Collins> Its all decaying...and taking on a biological structure?
[21:16] <The Magistra> Yeah, I can't even tell how long we've been here aside from manually counting
[21:17] <Sean Collins> Where do we go from here?
[21:17] * @Paisley Pythia Peinforte looks to see if the blood trail continues
[21:17] *** there is still a blood trail....going into the distance
[21:18] <The Magistra> We follow the blood.
[21:18] <D. Kakaku> this is a long trail.
[21:18] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> ...............
[21:18] <The Magistra> If it's anything like the walk here from our ship, it'll be quick
[21:18] * @Paisley Pythia Peinforte just ignores him
[21:18] * @Paisley Pythia Peinforte follows the trail
[21:19] * Haru E follows the trail as well.
[21:19] <The Magistra> We don't know it's hers. Maybe she fought something off and we're chasing it instead.
[21:19] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> Maybe.
[21:19] * @Paisley Pythia Peinforte really is doing the stiff upper lip thing here.
[21:19] *** as you walk.....everything it doesn't take that much time...are you moving or is everything else moving with you
[21:20] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> Let me try something
[21:20] * @Paisley Pythia Peinforte DIRECTLY tries to walk with the EXPECTATION and INTENT of catching up to Kaelyn
[21:21] *** you collide into something, paisley
[21:21] * @Paisley Pythia Peinforte stops and observes
[21:21] *** you find yourself...observing yourself...who is obeserving you
[21:22] <Haru E> ...this a mirror or have we stepped into another Meta-thing?
[21:22] *** Haru, you hear the other you say the same thing
[21:23] * Sean Collins and Rhea approach this "mirror"...
[21:23] * @Paisley Pythia Peinforte looks herself over
[21:23] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> I'm looking rather good.
[21:24] * D. Kakaku gets closer to the mirror.
[21:24] <The Magistra> ...This is just screwy
[21:24] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> ...that's one fic I wouldn't write
[21:24] * Rhea reaches out to touch the mirror image...
[21:26] * @Paisley Pythia Peinforte gets a ping on the onnextion and mutters something about Exeter being a perv
[21:27] <D. Kakaku> I look better now than 5 years ago... huh.
[21:28] *** it isn't a mirror
[21:28] *** you are litarlay looking at each other
[21:28] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> Oi, me. What's going on.
[21:28] <Haru E> Great, this is another Meta-thing.
[21:28] <The Magistra> This is a giant paradox isn't it
[21:29] *** you each say the same exact things at the same time..all of you
[21:29] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> Or we're in a curved space.
[21:29] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> The dimension's folded on itself.
[21:29] * Rhea touches hands with the other Rhea...
[21:29] ***'ve touched yourself...shouldn't you do that in a nother room?
[21:29] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> /e smacks Exeter over the connexion and tells him she totally knew the answer
[21:30] * @Paisley Pythia Peinforte also calls him a perv again :P
[21:30] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> Well logically if space has cirved
[21:30] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> Kaelyn would have met herself here too
[21:30] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> so she must be somewhere along the borderline where the space folds
[21:30] <D. Kakaku> say, how should we get to the other side?
[21:31] * @Paisley Pythia Peinforte tries walking in a sideways direction to where she can see herself
[21:31] *** both of you move in the same way at the same time but like a mirror in oppisite directions
[21:31] * Rhea and the other Rhea...while still holding hands, start to walk around each other...
[21:31] <D. Kakaku> hmmm.
[21:32] <The Magistra> Hmm
[21:32] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> Feh, this is a little moew complicated...
[21:32] * @Paisley Pythia Peinforte tries ot use the blood trail as a guide
[21:32] * The Magistra does a little jig, see if she can mess up her copy
[21:33] *** as you keep moving with the blood trail, paisley...your other self does the same with it's blood trail...moving on with itself
[21:33] * D. Kakaku looks for... slight differences
[21:33] * @Paisley Pythia Peinforte doesn't expec there to be differences
[21:33] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> This isn't s trick.
[21:33] *** there is no difference
[21:33] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> IT's a spatial anomaly thing
[21:33] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> That IS us.
[21:33] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> I'm dead sure of it
[21:34] <The Magistra> If you say so.
[21:34] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> But I can't... visualise how the space is curved in my head
[21:34] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> think of it like a reflecting mirror of a soft...
[21:34] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> ^sort
[21:34] <D. Kakaku> Paise, sis you see your mirrored self go in the same general direction?
[21:34] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> buit if wer're on opposite sides of it
[21:34] <D. Kakaku> *did
[21:34] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> shouldn't we nead in the other direction?
[21:34] * Rhea and her twin stop turning after they swapped places...
[21:35] * @Paisley Pythia Peinforte turns AWAY from the reflection
[21:35] * @Paisley Pythia Peinforte walks in the other direction
[21:35] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> I mean I'll end up on the other side eventually.
[21:35] <D. Kakaku> ..... did they just?
[21:35] <Rhea> Where are you going?
[21:36] *** the reflection of paisley just walks away in the oppisite way
[21:36] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> ...This way.
[21:36] * @Paisley Pythia Peinforte keeps going
[21:36] <Sean Collins> ...wait...
[21:36] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> If the space is closed...
[21:36] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> We're going to end up covering all of it by going this way
[21:37] <D. Kakaku> Paisley... The two rhea's switched places.
[21:37] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> if we kkeep going the way we we... what
[21:37] *** the two rheas are indeed in oppisites now....
[21:37] <D. Kakaku> Mirror Thea's on out side of the fold.
[21:37] * Sean Collins walks up to his double...
[21:37] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> OH
[21:37] <D. Kakaku> *Rhea
[21:37] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> Stupid me
[21:37] <D. Kakaku> *our
[21:37] * @Paisley Pythia Peinforte waks back to the reflection and walks around it
[21:38] <The Magistra> WHy are we swapping places with ourselves?
[21:38] * Sean Collins walks in a circle with his double until they have switched places...
[21:38] <Sean Collins> To keep going forward.
[21:38] * The Magistra mimics what the others did.
[21:38] * D. Kakaku does the same with his mirror self
[21:39] * Haru E goes to walk around her doppelganger as well. Time for progress.
[21:39] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> S hortcut
[21:39] * Rhea waves goodbye to herself.
[21:39] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> it if spoace is curved this gets us to the other side of it right now
[21:39] * @Paisley Pythia Peinforte keeps looking for the trail of blood
[21:39] *** Sean as soon as he turns slams into something hard
[21:40] <Sean Collins> OW!
[21:40] <D. Kakaku> hm?
[21:41] <D. Kakaku> what'd you bump into, Sean?
[21:41] * Sean Collins looks...
[21:42] ***'ve slammed into a pillar made of ...well......the corpse of...something so warped and.....different you can't even recongize what it is
[21:42] <Sean Collins> O_o
[21:42] <The Magistra> eww
[21:43] <D. Kakaku> yuck.
[21:43] *** you are all's ruins madeup of all these strangely warped of planes and ships.......leading up to a MASSIVE pyramid...which touches a MASSIVE pyramid hanging down form the sky likea mirror
[21:44] <The Magistra> ...If sis is sitting at the top like an Evil Overlord we smack her
[21:45] <D. Kakaku> is there a good Underlord?
[21:45] *** there is a door in front of the pyramid..the entire thing looks so ancient
[21:46] * @Paisley Pythia Peinforte opens door
[21:47] <Sean Collins> I think we should be more worried about her being a part of the decor....
[21:47] *** the door opens...........the air is stagnant and ancient
[21:47] * @Paisley Pythia Peinforte coughs
[21:47] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> gah
[21:48] <D. Kakaku> does it smell bad?
[21:49] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> Just very musty
[21:49] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> I'm not sure if she came this way
[21:49] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> But I have to check
[21:49] * @Paisley Pythia Peinforte walks forward
[21:49] * Sean Collins follows with Rhea close by
[21:49] <The Magistra> Agreed. I'm not gonna leave without her.
[21:50] *** the room has no lights..yet it seems to be..weirdly lighted.........
[21:50] <D. Kakaku> I'm coming.
[21:50] * D. Kakaku follows
[21:51] * Haru E brings up the rear.
[21:52] *** you are in a HUGE room...dominated by pillars..
[21:52] <D. Kakaku> so many pillars.
[21:53] *** the pillars and friezes along the wall are just...bizzaree...alien by most alien standards....most of them make no sense.......and the closer you look at the...less sense they make
[21:53] * @Paisley Pythia Peinforte looks around for anything of note
[21:53] * @Paisley Pythia Peinforte feels headache coming on
[21:53] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> S[BLEEP]t be carteful
[21:53] * @Paisley Pythia Peinforte triesd to focus her mind on thr image of kaelyn

[21:54] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> something to ground you
[21:54] <D. Kakaku> done and done.
[21:54] * The Magistra just keeps walking forward, focusing on transforming her sword into a gun and back
[21:55] *** Roll 1d10, guys
[21:55] <spiritflame> The Magistra rolls 1d10 [ 4 ]
[21:57] <spiritflame> @Paisley Pythia Peinforte rolls 1d10 [ 4 ]

[22:01] * Sean Collins readies his sword! "Who is there?!"
[22:01] *** you all can suddenly hear footsteps...scurrying from pillar to pillar
[22:01] * The Magistra points her sword.
[22:01] <D. Kakaku> scurrying

[22:02] *** roll 1d10 again folks
[22:02] <spiritflame> D. Kakaku rolls 1d10 [ 5 ]

[22:09] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> Kaelyn?
[22:10] *** the defiently not kaelyn.....if the warped stance is anything to go on
[22:10] *** the figure tries to run
[22:10] <The Magistra> Not her. But they're fleeing
[22:10] <The Magistra> Chase? Yes no?
[22:11] <D. Kakaku> Fleeing, where'd it go?
[22:11] <D. Kakaku> Yes, of course!
[22:11] * Sean Collins gives chase!
[22:11] * The Magistra chases
[22:12] * @Paisley Pythia Peinforte bounds after it
[22:12] *** teh thing tries to run but stumbles and falls to the ground
[22:13] * D. Kakaku runs to Paisley and Magistra
[22:13] * Rhea follows!
[22:14] *** the thing cowers in front of the crowd coming towards it
[22:14] * Sean Collins reaches the figure and tries to grab its shoulder!
[22:14] <Creature> no hurt no hurt!
[22:14] * Creature is grabbed by sean
[22:14] <D. Kakaku> no hurt?
[22:15] <The Magistra> Sean you're scaring them.

[23:14] <Kaelyn P. Peinforte> no...I don't remember any of it
[23:14] <The Magistra> Your mom was close to losing it the whole time. Hell I'm suprised I held together as well as I did.
[23:14] * @Paisley Pythia Peinforte comes back looking bleary-eyed
[23:14] <Haru E> Still, we shouldn't breathe easy yet. No real telling if that thing might try to break out.

[23:16] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> I am never sending you on a vacation again
[23:16] * Sean Collins checks to see if the knife Rhea had dropped on the deck was still around...
[23:17] *** the knife is there....but as you look at looks like it has been there for centuries..the metal is nearly turned to dust
[23:18] * Sean Collins kneels down near it. "....strange..."
[23:18] <The Magistra> Time in that place was really wonky
[23:19] * Doctor noble is babbling about cross-dimensional time differentials
[23:19] <Haru E> That's putting it lightly, Magistra. It's like it was all over the place --- stopped, accelerated....

[23:21] * @Paisley Pythia Peinforte ujust sits in a corner of the deck
[23:21] * Haru E pulls out her visor and clicks it on. She decides on a quick test --- what time is it currently in their timezone.

[23:24] * Sean Collins picks Rhea up off the deck.
[23:24] * Haru E checks the date. Is it still Friday, October 19th, 2018?
[23:25] *** well it is for now until the time changes
[23:25] * Kaelyn P. Peinforte struggles to get up but is still a bit wobbly

[23:26] * @Paisley Pythia Peinforte pats the deck
[23:26] * The Magistra leans on a railing, looking relieved.

[19:21] <Brown-Haired, tanned Bedouin Woman> That's nice. What's the longitude

[19:21] * Kate runs over and puts a clothe over magistra to help her
[19:21] <Aratasujou> Calculating now.

[19:35] * People in the crowd turns around and yells to the people of the city. 'THEY SERVE THE EMPEROR---HE IS COMING!"
[19:36] <Brown-Haired, tanned Bedouin Woman> <<I think this is the same place>>
[19:36] *** A massive shout of jubilation spreads through the city.

[19:36] <People in the crowd> Please---please---accept our hospitality. We have shade here for you! And figs!
[19:36] <People in the crowd> Oh, this is so amazing. Is it true the Emperor has incredible beast and servants and creations and wealth beyond all measure?

[19:37] * TomorrowIsMine keeps her voice low. "Are you sure this is wise"

[19:37] <Brown-Haired, tanned Bedouin Woman> <<yeah I think so>>
[19:37] *** The particles are coming from the center of the town.
[19:37] <Brown-Haired, tanned Bedouin Woman> Yes! All these things are true.
[19:37] <Brown-Haired, tanned Bedouin Woman> <<Center of town>>
[19:37] <Oniwabandana> (hmmm... not pre-caesar, but possibly alexander-era)
[19:37] *** Some of the people have tears of happiness in their eyes.
[19:38] * Aratasujou increases power to her contragrav generators to hover at tree-top level.
[19:38] <Brown-Haired, tanned Bedouin Woman> We are eager to survey your wonderful town, so we may make it ready for the Emperor's arrival.
[19:38] <Brown-Haired, tanned Bedouin Woman> That is our task as his heralds.
[19:39] * Aratasujou makes her way towards the center of town.
[19:39] <People in the crowd> Oh, of course---of course!
[19:39] <People in the crowd> Anything---we can't wait to see he Emperor!
[19:39] <Dirty, hungry-looking person> Is it... is it true that the Emperor gives gold to those he finds who are poor?
[19:39] * Aratasujou also provides Sakura-April and anyone else with a vid-link with a real-time video connection to whatever she's looking at and seeing.

[19:42] <Captain Jack Harkness> I want to arrange a meal for you.
[19:42] * In the center of town is obviously filling with people who are lining up and standing near the food, as well as a few people who are taking food to houses.
[19:43] <Captain Jack Harkness> And we could use your guidance so we can understand all about your town.
[19:43] <Captain Jack Harkness> Would you be so kind as to assist us?
[19:43] *** everybody nods with ourtrageous eagerness.

[19:44] * Aratasujou tries to move towards the roof of the highest building in the center of town to provide surveillance, keeping her overall bodyweight reduced to a mere five pounds.
[19:44] * Kate follows her grandfather, while also looking over the beragged people
[19:44] *** They look excited, and shout the names of the people to come and look.
[19:45] *** The biggest building in town does in fact have a roof you can fit on top of.
[19:45] * Captain Jack Harkness gets the sity man food and a bath with help from the locals and tries to get him to be their guide
[19:45] * Brown-Haired, tanned Bedouin Woman looks to see where the E-particles could be located
[19:45] *** Important note---NOT all of these people look bedraggled or desperate or poor. Some of them look very wealthy, others look dirty---but they could be bricklayers or something, but all look curious.
[19:45] * Oniwabandana tosses some gold coins over to a random group of people
[19:46] * Brown-Haired, tanned Bedouin Woman is now known as Regal Herald of the Emperor
[19:46] <People> O_O
[19:46] * Regal Herald of the Emperor has taded her robes for the fancy dress
[19:46] * Regal Herald of the Emperor made them under the robes first so it doesn't look like she just did a quick change
[19:47] <Man Jack is helping> I am... so grateful for the Emperor's kindness, but I am unsure of how I can help you. I am merely a farmer.
[19:47] <Captain Jack Harkness> No one is "mere" in the Emperor's eyes.
[19:47] *** The people who had the gold coins thrown amid them actually stand still, and allow the poorer-looking people to take them.
[19:47] <Captain Jack Harkness> He values all.
[19:47] <Man Jack is helping> That is incredible. He truly is a man like no other....
[19:47] * Captain Jack Harkness looks at the wealthier ones
[19:47] * Man Jack is helping looks at Captain Jack Harkness.

His image Song is: 'Born to be Wild' by Steppenwolf. He is Level 1.

[19:48] <Captain Jack Harkness> And of courrse, the generosirty of those who help their brothers and sisters in time of need will be handsomely rewarded~
[19:48] *** The people don't really know what to say.
[19:48] <Regal Herald of the Emperor> (Way to run up this emperor's bar tab)
[19:49] * The people mutter many grateful thanks and praises and blessings.
[19:49] <The people> Have you... have you travelled a long way in service to the Emperor?
[19:49] <Aratasujou> Advice to all - avoid too much material generosity. It might actually arouse suspicion towards our group.
[19:49] * The Magistra keeps her face hidden beneith a hood, sticking near Thrash.
[19:50] <Captain Jack Harkness> <<That's why I'm having them do it to each other>>
[19:50] * Kate stays close to magistra
[19:50] <Regal Herald of the Emperor> The Emperor's territories are vast and we go where he wills us.
[19:50] *** A man who looks shocked sticks his head out of the window of the building Aratasujou is on top of, looking down at the upcoming procession.
[19:50] * Aratasujou starts observing things in the town's center from her rooftop perch, making sure her colors match her surroundings.
[19:50] <Regal Herald of the Emperor> <<Furby check for a good line of sight on the E-particles>>
[19:51] <Aratasujou> In place like this, silver works better than gold.
[19:51] *** The town appears full of busy people, and deliveries of food, as well as different fabrics, crafts, and trades, but lots of that is coming to a halt now.
[19:51] * Aratasujou looks around as Sakura-April requests.
[19:51] *** There are traces of such particles directly underneath Aratasoujou.
[19:52] *** There is a faint signal coming from the building she's on top of, though there are other signals pointing from a different direction.
[19:52] <Aratasujou> ADVISORY - spotted a man looking out at your group. He seems very surprised. E-particles also detected directly beneath me.
[19:52] * Aratasujou scans the man for E-particles.
[19:52] * TomorrowIsMine checks to see if any members of her party, aside from herself, are wearing any types of eyewear
[19:52] * Regal Herald of the Emperor looks to see where trhe other source is
[19:52] <spiritflame> The Man rolls 2d6 [ 5, 5 ]
[19:52] * The Man has some on his hands.
[19:53] <Aratasujou> Transmitting currently location. Designating the building I'm on an Anomaly.
[19:53] *** The other market is coming from a source that's a really low building near the center of town, that doesn't look nearly as pretty. There are what appear to be auction blocks outside it.
[19:53] <Aratasujou> Man has E-particle traces on him. Designating...
[19:54] * Aratasujou scans the man CLOSELY to get his appearance and transmits it to everyone in the party who can receive it.
[19:54] * Regal Herald of the Emperor indicates the building to Bayoneeta over commms. <<Can you go over there and see what's there>>
[19:54] <Regal Herald of the Emperor> <<More than likley they;re handling something with E-particles in it>>
[19:54] <Regal Herald of the Emperor> <<Can you find out what he was working with>>
[19:54] *** none of the people who are currently in this group would recognize this person. However, Intern would, and does.
[19:54] <Aratasujou> Detecting E-particles and other signals coming from this building. Stand by.
[19:55] * Aratasujou scans the building she's currently on top of.
[19:55] *** The last time you came to this place, there was a person who invited the "servants of the Emperor" into his home and had his women cook food for you. That's him. Abu was his name.
[19:56] * TomorrowIsMine heads there, passing though people like they're not even there. <<Not a problem. If there's a door though I'll need a distraction. A door opening on it's own is going to raise some eyeybrows
[19:57] <Aratasujou> Inquiry - how large of a distraction would you require?
[19:57] *** Congratulations, Bayonetta---you have found the slave market!
[19:58] <TomorrowIsMine> <<....It's a slave market... How barberic...>>
[19:58] *** There are people here, mostly women, and they look tired, but crisply-dressed. A few of them are under guard, others are practicing singing and dancing, and are very good. Many of them are lying down.
[19:58] <Regal Herald of the Emperor> <<t hat man>> keep an eye on him. See who he is and where he goes >>
[19:58] <Abu> .....
[19:59] * Abu sighs.
[19:59] <Kate> it's horrid......
[19:59] * Abu closes his shutter and locks them.
[19:59] <Thrash 7> it's history, my child...
[19:59] *** I NEVER said it was horrid.
[19:59] <Aratasujou> Slavery not uncommon in this part of the world at this point in history.
[20:00] <TomorrowIsMine> (( A slave market is still a slave market even if they're well treated, I think we can all agree that's still bad Juju yes?) ))
[20:00] *** These are people, mostly women, many young, who are uniformly bereft of adornment. They are kept apart, but only a very small number are actively being guarded or anything.
[20:01] * TomorrowIsMine reports this to the others.
[20:01] <Aratasujou> Martial and economic slavery practiced extensively in this part of history. Slaves often were debtors or prisoners of war.
[20:01] *** The people here at the place where slaves, servants, and concubines can be purchased HAVE NOT come out into the street. Either they are forbidden, or they are making sure to watch the others.
[20:01] <Aratasujou> Man now back inside.
[20:01] <Regal Herald of the Emperor> <<focus on that man, he came into contact with E-particles. M<aybe he can lead us to more>>
[20:02] * Aratasujou looks to see if there's a way to get inside the building from the roof.
[20:02] <Regal Herald of the Emperor> <<follow him sealthily and track the concentration of particles in everything around him>>
[20:02] <The people surrounding you> So.... when do you think the Emperor will be here? Is it true that he has SO MUCH WEALTH and servants that he builds a Mosque every Friday?
[20:02] * Regal Herald of the Emperor laughs pleansantly
[20:03] * Aratasujou is still scanning for E-particles, attempting to measure concentrations of them as she moves around in order to triangulate a rough location of their source.
[20:03] <Regal Herald of the Emperor> The emperor will be here soon, he moves as he will.
[20:03] * TomorrowIsMine rejoins the group
[20:03] <Regal Herald of the Emperor> As for the measure of his wealth... I will leave that to you to judge for yourselves when he comes.
[20:03] * Regal Herald of the Emperor smiles knowingly
[20:04] * The people surrounding you nod excitedly, and rumors of extravagant wealth beyond any reason are quickly spread.
[20:04] *** Aratasoujou, the sources of the particles are not moving.
[20:04] *** Unless----Roll 1d20
[20:04] <spiritflame> Aratasujou rolls 1d20 [ 2 ]
[20:04] *** 20 only---if 19, roll again.
[20:04] *** you fail.
[20:04] *** They aren't moving.
[20:05] <Man with brand new threads> Thank you again... so much.
[20:05] * Aratasujou attempts to determine the distance to their source.
[20:05] *** Source 1: ground floor below you. Source 2 (stronger) the building Bayonetta was in. Lots of them there.
[20:06] <Captain Jack Harkness> You're very welcome~
[20:06] <spiritflame> Person rolls 1d20 [ 16 ]
[20:06] <Person> <.<
[20:06] <Aratasujou> UPDATE!
[20:06] <Regal Herald of the Emperor> <<,Jack, get him tot ell us about the man Furby saw>>
[20:07] * Captain Jack Harkness smiles at the amn with new threads
[20:07] *** The source below you is incredibly faint and scattered.
[20:07] * Captain Jack Harkness describes the man Arata described "We have heard stories of this man, can you tell us about him?"
[20:07] <spiritflame> Person rolls 1d20 [ 2 ]
[20:07] <Aratasujou> Ground floor contains ttraces of E-particles. Stronger E-particle concentrations detected in slave market building.
[20:07] <Person> Oh. Yes. That is Abu. He purchased the largest house in town. He's so wealthy he has his own kitchen.
[20:08] <Regal Herald of the Emperor> <<Bayoneeta, back tot he market, use your compass and find out more about the particles. Maybe Thrash can make a distraction so she can slip in>>
[20:08] <Regal Herald of the Emperor> <<Furby, go inside and check the faint traces. That guy is high on the toem pole here>>
[20:08] <Person> Incredibly wealthy---and he even has enough water to extinguish fires in his home. He settled here, and bought a concubine, so he clearly intends to settle down.
[20:09] <Thrash 7> is he a noble fellow of good character?
[20:09] <Regal Herald of the Emperor> Our Emperor will surely be interested in meeting him.
[20:09] * Aratasujou tries to get inside the building she's on through a roof access point (if there is any).
[20:09] * TomorrowIsMine heads back there
[20:10] *** Lucklily for you, there is a chimeny!
[20:10] * Aratasujou will activate "Prince of Persia"/"Assassin's Creed" Parkour protocols now.
[20:10] *** This is.... one of maybe 3 buildings in this whole town that have a chimeney---but there's a fire underneath it.
[20:10] <Person> Oh wow---I am very impressed that your Emperor would want that.
[20:11] <Person> Are you sure? This is not the town of the governor, that is the next settlement down the road---or perhaps you meant further along, the great city of Cairo?
[20:11] <Person> I'm sure that the Sultan, Abu-Nasir Muhammed, would love to host your amazing Emperor! Our own Sultan is a great man as well, and he is a wise and just ruler!
[20:12] *** Aratasu, how do you deal with the burning coals below you?
[20:12] * Aratasujou is comparatively TEENY! She'll slide down the chimney, wedging herself each step of the way like any good mountain-climber/parkour enthusiast would, then use contragrav to float upside down just above the fire and maneuver her way around it.
[20:12] <Thrash 7> for a wise ruler, even the smallest of villages hold interest
[20:13] *** Aratasujou, there is a man who looks very sad, you recognize him as Abu, and a woman trying to cheer him up.
[20:13] <Person> Oh that's AMAZING!
[20:14] <Person> Well, what of our village do you wish to see on your Golden Emperor's behalf
[20:14] * Oniwabandana is still walking with the group
[20:14] * Aratasujou will make herself "stand" on the ceiling to listen to the conversation...and transmit the whole thing to the party in real-time.
[20:14] *** The woman tries to sing to him and console him, but he looks incredibly depressed.
[20:14] * Regal Herald of the Emperor inidicates a drieection away from Abu's and the slave market to give our allies some time to look around without throngs nearby
[20:15] * Aratasujou keeps scanning Abu AND the woman he's with. Any E-particles coming from her?
[20:15] *** The man takes you to the fountain. It's really pretty, and lots of people are getting water. They all want to talk to you. There's quite a crowd around you now.
[20:15] * Thrash 7 chats in a manner both gentle and with a great sense of age and experience
[20:16] <Translation> There are a few particles in the house that clearly don't belong in this universe, their half-life is too short. There are only scant traces of them. Some of them are on Abu's hands, but many more are on the cookware. Note that detecting them will mean you need to use your tech at the height of its ability. Do you?
[20:16] *** ^
[20:16] * Regal Herald of the Emperor engages in idle chatter while selling th e image of the emperior and directing traffic in the background through the transmistters
[20:16] <Aratasujou> Abu spotted. Emotionally distraught.
[20:16] * TomorrowIsMine wanders around the slave building, following the compass
[20:17] <Aratasujou> Inquiry - what exactly ARE E-particles and their affect on organics?
[20:17] * Translation is the woman asking the man over and over what is wrong, and to please let her help him, but Abu is resolute and says nothing, though it is very telling on him. She offers to sing and play to cheer him up, and he tells her to do it. Her voice is beautiful.
[20:17] <Regal Herald of the Emperor> <<I don't know thier impact but they're tired to kerrick and enclave. So this may be tied to him, or another lich, or something similar>>
[20:17] <spiritflame> Quest rolls 1d10 [ 8 ]
[20:18] <Abu turns to > /his wife, and says that he had no choice but to do it, and that she would die if he didn't sell her.
[20:18] * Aratasujou pushes her internal multi-scanners to MAXIMUM for the benefit of the party. Solar-kun DID tell her to do everything in her power to help them.
[20:18] <spiritflame> Detector? rolls 2d6 [ 5, 3 ]
[20:18] <spiritflame> Detector? rolls 2d6 [ 3, 3 ]
[20:19] * Aratasujou is still transmitting the conversation to everyone in the party with a vid-link.
[20:19] *** Aratasujou, the markings are on the dishes, and coming mostly from one room of the house.
[20:19] * Regal Herald of the Emperor , havign ascces to Furby's feed, sees that conversation.
[20:19] *** Bayonetta, you are SURE you want to trace the highest extent of the particles in that room?
[20:19] <Aratasujou> More E-particle traces on the dishes.
[20:19] <spiritflame> Detector? rolls 1d6 [ 4 ]
[20:19] * Aratasujou moves to investigate that one room.
[20:20] *** There are loads of them in one of the chambers around a particular group of slaves.
[20:20] *** They are all singing, but many cough, and lie down.
[20:20] <Aratasujou> Particles seem to be coming from one location. Investigate (y/n)?
[20:20] * TomorrowIsMine is sure. The people can't see or interact with her anyways
[20:20] <Regal Herald of the Emperor> <<Furby - fololow those particles. if they're on cookware, the cook may have been handling them. yes investigate
[20:21] *** Aratasujou---it's a bedroom, and it's empty. The bed has no occupant.
[20:21] * Kate is watching the people...looking so conflicted
[20:21] * Abu continues to listen to his wife sing, but he looks incredibly sad.
[20:21] <Regal Herald of the Emperor> << if something is killing her... and he has to sell her because of it... is he aware there's something int he house causing it I wonder??>>
[20:21] * Abu currently has no cook.
[20:22] * Aratasujou looks for the source of the E-particles.
[20:22] * There is one of the slaves who looks saddest of all, but she joins in song with the others, which, oddly, is not in the language of Arabic, or any other from this region.
[20:22] * Aratasujou checks the bed FIRST
[20:23] <Regal Herald of the Emperor> <<scan the woman too, furby >>
[20:23] *** There are only traces of these particles, but the bed does have the highest amount of them, yes.
[20:24] <Aratasujou> Bed contains highest concentrations of E-particles. Formulating theory. Stand by.
[20:24] * Aratasujou scans everything in the bedroom that could have conceivably belonged to Abu's wife.
[20:25] *** There doesn't seem to bey ANYTHING that belonged to her, as she was a slave. There are cups, sandals, etc, but they don't have elevated concentrations.
[20:25] * Aratasujou sneaks back to the kitchen to examine/scan all of the kitchen and cookware.
[20:26] * Aratasujou also scans the girl dancing for Abu.
[20:26] * The people on the edge of the town all lose their minds.
[20:26] <Kate> !
[20:26] <Aratasujou> That be the General Lee?
[20:27] <Shocked and excited people> He is here! He is coming! ALL OF HIS SERVANTS ARE CARRYING GOLD!
[20:27] *** The trumpets sound again from a direction you cannot see from your current locations.
[20:27] * TomorrowIsMine relays any of her finds back the the group.
[20:27] <TomorrowIsMine> <<That sounds bad>>
[20:27] <Regal Herald of the Emperor> <<s[BLEEP]t it might be the emperor. USe your dress pheres, MElt intot he crowd and change appearance>>
[20:27] <Regal Herald of the Emperor> //me slips away from the crowd
[20:27] <Oniwabandana> <<trumpets?>>
[20:27] * Regal Herald of the Emperor is now known as Non-Descript Citizen
[20:28] * Oniwabandana slinks into the shadows
[20:28] * Kate and Thrash 7 quickly do the same...becoming just another face in the crowd
[20:28] <spiritflame> People watching the group rolls 3d6 [ 2, 1, 5 ]
[20:28] *** almost everybody is too distracted to notice you disappear.
[20:28] * Oniwabandana is now known as Nana Asahina (Local)
[20:28] <spiritflame> People watching the group rolls 2d6 [ 4, 4 ]
[20:28] * Captain Jack Harkness disentangles himself from someone and changes intot he rags fromt he dirty beggar.
[20:29] * Captain Jack Harkness musses up his har and such and just skulks into a corner
[20:29] * Aratasujou keeps searching the kitchen for E-particle traces, concentrating on Abu's dancer-friend and the cookware.
[20:29] <Aratasujou> Also examines any stored food.
[20:29] * A tremendous procession of men near the city. They carry staves of solid gold, and wear golden garments. Behind them come camels laden with heavy packages and handlers who all wear neat trim.
[20:30] * The Magistra changes her look. "They really were coming!"
[20:30] <Non-Descript Citizen> << bed, cookware, the eoman has to be involved I doubt that man cooks for himself >>
[20:30] * Non-Descript Citizen also heads away friom the group
[20:30] * Nana Asahina (Local) looks like one of the local citizens
[20:30] <Herald of Mansa Musa> [size=20] Make for the "Emir of Melle", "Lord of the Mines of Wangara", "Conqueror of Ghanata"---Mansa Musa, of Mali! [/size
[20:31] <Herald of Mansa Musa> Make for the "Emir of Melle", "Lord of the Mines of Wangara", "Conqueror of Ghanata"---Mansa Musa, of Mali!
[20:31] <Non-Descript Citizen> << Bayonetta, id the large portion of thr particles are with one set of slaves they must have something in common
[20:31] <Non-Descript Citizen> >>
[20:31] <Aratasujou> Scanning now. Theory: Abu's wife somehow contaminated with high concentrations resulting in deteriorating health, necessitating disposal.
[20:31] * Herald of Mansa Musa walk up and announce the arrival of their king.
[20:31] *** The people run off to speak to them, shocked at what is going on.
[20:31] <Non-Descript Citizen> <<If so get allt he data oy ucan on her, battery of scans, not just E-particles. X-rays anything >>
[20:32] * Non-Descript Citizen uses this distraction to get well away into the shadows
[20:32] *** There are only TRACES inside the building. Abu, for his part, is explaining that he had no choice but to sell his concubine, because she would sicken and die, and this was the best way he could care for her.
[20:33] <Herald of Mansa Musa> [/size=30] Make way! Make way for the King! [/size]
[20:33] <Herald of Mansa Musa> Make way! Make way for the King!
[20:33] <Aratasujou> Ooooooo! Take pictures of procession! Mansa Musa is famous for his caravans. According to historical records, they could be comprised of upwards of 60000 bearers, 500 slaves each carrying gold staves, and almost 100 camels carrying 300 pounds of gold dust each.
[20:33] * Captain Jack Harkness meets Saki in the shadows.
[20:34] *** A TREMENDOUS baggage train of camels, soldiers, slaves, dancers, porters, carriages, and people, all from West Africa, breaks the western Horizon.
[20:34] * Non-Descript Citizen will just in case there's more ot this guy than meets the eye
[20:34] * Nana Asahina (Local) takes pictures, not even needing the flash.
[20:34] <TomorrowIsMine> <<I'm thinking it's what made some of them sick. They then get sold here so they can be cared for>>
[20:34] *** Each of them are dressed in threads of gold. All of the things you said about the visiting emperor are true. He is wealthy beyond imagination.
[20:34] <Non-Descript Citizen> Harkness we need to scan those slaves too. WE need to get Bayoneeta this tricorder >>
[20:35] <Non-Descript Citizen> <<Bayoneeta meet us in the allewyway at [locationm]>>
[20:35] <Aratasujou> Shall I continue to monitor Abu?
[20:35] <Non-Descript Citizen> <<We're going to give you a better tool to scan the slaves >>
[20:35] <Non-Descript Citizen> <<Furby Deep scan on that woman, find out what's wrong with erh. UIse all methods >>
[20:36] * Aratasujou scans Abu's dancer-friend carefully and thoroughly.
[20:36] *** The woman currently with Abu and singing for him is NOT the person who was sick. She looks within 95% of the health level for a person in her date/time/profession/age.
[20:36] *** Abu is also healthy, though he will likely have bone disease in the future.
[20:37] * TomorrowIsMine heads to the meeting point, Slipping out of Purgatio once alone in the alley.
[20:37] <spiritflame> ??? rolls 2d6 [ 3, 5 ]
[20:37] * Aratasujou can find no indication of E-particle contamination in the woman?
[20:37] <Non-Descript Citizen> <<s[BLEEP]t! so that woman was sold to the slave area where Bayoneeta was. Get over there >>
[20:37] <Non-Descript Citizen> << those are the women we need to check >>
[20:38] <Nana Asahina (Local)> <<right>>
[20:38] * Non-Descript Citizen has an idea.
[20:38] <Aratasujou> Theory: could someone be trying to get Mensa Musa to purchase a contaminated slave woman and be exposed to E-particles himself somehow?
[20:38] <Non-Descript Citizen> <<Arata get me a picture of one of the slave guards ... and maybe >>
[20:38] *** Perhaps you don't understand what you are looking for, Aratasojou... yes you do find paticles in the room that should have decayed and shouldn't be there, but there are trace amounts. Yes, this woman DOES have more Carbon 14 than she ought to, but this is a miniscule amount that your scanners can barely detect.
[20:39] * Aratasujou was making certain.
[20:39] * The silhouette of elephants can be seen coming over the hill now.
[20:40] * Aratasujou scampers up the wall, across the ceiling, and back up the chimney to get to the roof to try and get a good picture of one of the guards protecting the slave market.
[20:40] <Non-Descript Citizen> <<Come on. I need to get in there but to do that I need to become a guard >>
[20:40] *** Mamluk riders can be seen off in the distance, coming up the road to the town to investigate.
[20:40] * Kate is being lead by her grandfather, who is also explaining some of the history here
[20:40] *** The guards to the market are inside, not outside. It's hot today!
[20:41] * Non-Descript Citizen makes her way across town, shifting guisea to that of different people along the way as she goes so as not to draw attention
[20:41] <Aratasujou> All slave market guards are inside their building. I will need to leave Abu to effect your request.
[20:41] * TomorrowIsMine waits in the alley.
[20:41] <Non-Descript Citizen> <<forget him for now >>
[20:41] * Non-Descript Citizen left a tricorder foer her there lol
[20:41] * African Men wearing gold goes up to the town square, and the people who were talking to the party earlier. "His most powerful highness offers you his greetings on his journey to Mecca! He presents gold as a gift to your land!
[20:41] <Non-Descript Citizen> <<Bayonetta I'm going back to the slave area come meet me >>
[20:42] * Aratasujou tries to get across from Abu's house to the slave market, initiating EPIC PARKOUR.
[20:42] * Non-Descript Citizen gets as close as she can to the slave area without drawing attention and assesses wohat sahe would need to do to get inside
[20:42] * Tremendous amounts of dancing and singing can be heard over the hill outside.
[20:43] *** The difficult thing about breaking into an area with slaves is that what keeps them in often keeps you out.
[20:43] *** There are some areas that are low security----but this is a place of business, after all.
[20:43] * Aratasujou just needs to get onto the roof of the building and look for a window. She just needs a clear line-of-sight at one of the guards.
[20:43] *** You can actually hear some singing fro your hiding places outside the building---it's NOT in a language you recognize.
[20:43] * Aratasujou has an idea of what Captain Jack has in mind.
[20:44] * Non-Descript Citizen is not jack harness fleabag
[20:44] *** You get lucky, and one of the guards pokes his head through a window to see wtf is going on outside.
[20:44] * Aratasujou also attempts to identify the language being sung using the Federation's linguistic database.
[20:44] <spiritflame> Guards rolls 1d6 [ 3 ]
[20:44] *** Language not found.
[20:45] * Aratasujou scans the guard's outfit and clothing. And scans him for E-particles just in case.
[20:45] * TomorrowIsMine slips back into purgatrio and heads to meet Saki <<I'm here. Do you have a pair of glasses on you?>>
[20:45] * Guards have not spotted you snooping around the slave market---note that this is NOT a place you want to get caught skulking around.
[20:45] <Aratasujou> Uploading image to you, Captain Harkness.
[20:45] <Non-Descript Citizen> <<IT'S SAKI DUMBS[BLEEP]T>>
[20:45] <spiritflame> ??? rolls 2d6 [ 3, 4 ]
[20:45] * Non-Descript Citizen is now known as Guard
[20:46] * Guard makes herself look like the guard arata saw
[20:46] *** You detect unusual levels on the guard, he's encountered more of this stuff than Abu's household did.
[20:46] * Kate and Thrash 7 are acting totally normal
[20:47] <Guard > <<I have a pair from my costime earlier int he day yes bayoneeta>
[20:47] * Mamluk Riders look around at the travelling procession and in awe, asking questions about this amazing emperor.
[20:47] <spiritflame> ??? rolls 1d20 [ 3 ]
[20:47] * Guard makes her way to the first entrace she can find that is unguarded
[20:47] *** Kate and Thrash, where are you?
[20:47] <Aratasujou> Update. Higher traces of E-particles detected on guard. He was closer to the source. Also, detected singing inside. Language does NOT correspond to anything on the Federation linguistic database.
[20:48] * Kate and Thrash are on the very edge of where everyone else is.....they're not..directly in the same area so it seems like just two people wandering and looking at things
[20:48] <Guard > << check if it matches the HOTEL records of that s[BLEEP]t kerrick used to mumble. >>
[20:48] <TomorrowIsMine> <<Put them on, I'll enchant them so you can see me>>
[20:48] *** you can't really tell that without going inside. There's only one door, on this side of the building, though. This is a slave area---it's understandable that ALL the doors would be guarded---keep this in mind.
[20:48] * Guard sends Arata some from the records Suckura Aino had researched
[20:48] *** So are Kate and Thrash looking at the amazing African procession.
[20:48] * Nana Asahina (Local) has glasses on
[20:48] * Aratasujou attempts to perform a Deep Scan of the slave market building in order to compile an internal blueprint of the structure.
[20:48] <spiritflame> ??? rolls 2d6 [ 6, 2 ]
[20:49] * Guard activates her thermoptic camoflague
[20:49] * ??? detects you.
[20:49] * Guard leaps onto the roof
[20:49] * Aratasujou's sensors are now being jammed.
[20:49] *** Do you still wish to use radio traffic?
[20:49] <Aratasujou> Warning. My multiscanner is now being jammed.
[20:50] * Guards inside can be heard running toward a central location now.
[20:50] * Guard hears that but doesn't reply
[20:50] * Kate is asking her grandfather question.and her grandfather..who looks like just another old man is answering them
[20:50] * Guard is now known as Saki (Camoflague]
[20:50] * Aratasujou will switch to telepathic sending instead. Remember, she DOES have psychotronic implants.
[20:50] <Saki (Camoflague]> ( If they're jamming comms then our visitors are here )
[20:50] * Saki (Camoflague] is NOT telepathic
[20:51] <Captain Jack Harkness> Crap
[20:51] *** MORE AND MORE PEOPLE pour over the hill, walking, carrying things, holding literal bars of gold, and accompanying camels. There are THOUSANDS of them.
[20:51] * TomorrowIsMine is following right behind Saki
[20:51] * Captain Jack Harkness shuts down his vortex manipulator
[20:51] <Aratasujou> Guards heard moving towards a central location in the slave market.
[20:51] * Captain Jack Harkness keeps as far ou of sight as he can for now
[20:52] * African Man walks up to Thrash and his granddaughter.
[20:52] <Thrash 7> hm?
[20:52] <Saki (Camoflague]> If they're onto us, we still have to act discreetly. The thing is they have no idea of our numbers I 'll bet.
[20:52] * Saki (Camoflague] is whispering to Bayo
[20:52] <African Man> Greetings on behalf of Master Musa Keita. His humble slave wishes to extend his blessings and invitation, on his holy Hajj to Mecca.
[20:53] * Aratasujou also switches to text-messaging everyone in the party with a vid-link, posting her messages on their video displays.
[20:53] <spiritflame> ??? rolls 2d6 [ 6, 5 ]
[20:53] <Saki (Camoflague]> We have to assume a high tech level here
[20:53] * Aratasujou is also attempting to counter the jammer affecting her sensors.
[20:53] <Thrash 7> ah we are honored by his inventation. Alas we are but here a short time but wished to see the glory that was your master's procession while we were here
[20:53] * Saki (Camoflague] keeps radio sillence
[20:53] <African Man> We offer our hospitality to the people of this village. Would you wish to partake of a feast given by our Emperor?
[20:54] * All of the guards go to one room now.
[20:54] * Saki (Camoflague] walks along the roof of the building quietly, still camooflagued
[20:54] * Saki (Camoflague] uses her thermal vision to see where the guards have gone, and goes over that room
[20:54] * Nana Asahina (Local) bows to the procession in the proper fashion.
[20:54] *** people near the building, roll 1d20
[20:54] * Saki (Camoflague] is kind of acting like the predator now
[20:54] <spiritflame> Saki (Camoflague] rolls 1d20 [ 11 ]
[20:55] <spiritflame> ??? rolls 1d20 [ 15 ]
[20:55] * Aratasujou uses her own enhanced vision to scan the interior of the building. Thermographic sensors are something she also has.
[20:55] <spiritflame> Aratasujou rolls 1d20 [ 3 ]
[20:55] <TomorrowIsMine> Psst.
[20:55] <Saki (Camoflague]> what
[20:55] *** You find that the building is rapidly becoming opaque to your scans.
[20:55] <Saki (Camoflague]> they are shutting this building down
[20:55] <Saki (Camoflague]> get in there
[20:56] <African Man> Would you and your daughter like to enter the encampment of our King?
[20:56] * African Man asks Thrash and Kate
[20:56] * Saki (Camoflague] uses one finger and slowly presses it against the roof to make a small hole
[20:56] <Aratasujou> Thermal scans being blocked. Countermeasures being deployed by adversary.
[20:56] <Thrash 7> we would be honored for a short time
[20:56] * Saki (Camoflague] does this very quietly and slowly
[20:56] <African Man> There is no better way to see the glory! Would you wish to enter?
[20:56] <African Man> Splendid! Follow me!
[20:56] <TomorrowIsMine> Just letting you know I'm following you.
[20:56] *** People start coming out of the building. Guards first.

[20:57] * The Magistra follows them, giggling at his protests
[20:57] * Aratasujou crawls on the walls like a Spider-Kitsune(Terminator) and looks for a window that's either unlocked or compromised.
[20:57] *** People continue out of the building. Guards first in a perimeter, then slaves, concubines, servants, etc, then an incredibly important-looking man, then a woman in a veil, and then more guards.
[20:57] <Aratasujou> :D
[20:57] *** Windows aren't common here.
[20:58] <Saki (Camoflague]> I onder if that's a distraction
[20:58] * Aratasujou scans ALL of the people for E-particles (if her sensors are able to).
[20:58] * Saki (Camoflague] looks through the hole she made to see who is in the room still
[20:58] *** Room is empty, the last of the guards are leaving and going outside.
[20:58] * Aratasujou starts by scanning the important-looking man and the veiled woman.
[20:58] <Saki (Camoflague]> (Everyone legit left?)
[20:59] <Saki (Camoflague]> Bayo confirm the building is empty and if it is we are going to pursue that party
[20:59] * Saki (Camoflague] loosk around to see if anyone is slipping out another way
[20:59] *** Arata-su, 40% of the servants all have elevated body temperature compared to the others, and show signs of fatigue. All of them have really fast heartbeats. The woman in the veil is impervious to your scans.
[20:59] * TomorrowIsMine makes her way inside the building, walking right down the side of the building if she has to
[20:59] *** The slaves are ordered up onto the auction block.
[21:00] *** The building is empty of people. There are chains, manacles, etc, some food, blankets, but no people.

[21:01] * Thrash 7 follows, Kate staying close to him
[21:01] <Aratasujou> Detected by subject directly. Target identified. Description as follows.
[21:01] * TomorrowIsMine dashs back, taking the form of a crow, but still unseen. Landing next to Saki. You'd see the dust she kicks up though. "Empty"
[21:02] * Woman in Veil goes over and talks to the man who seems to be in charge.
[21:02] * Saki (Camoflague] takea careful, precise aim, them fires a shot and rolls to the side several freet to avoid return triangulation
[21:02] * Aratasujou visually scans the Veiled Woman to try and get a description of her appearance and takes a bunch of pictures.

[21:03] * Aratasujou gets pictures of her EYES at least.

[21:03] * Saki (Camoflague] stays on the roof of the building and observes this
[21:03] * Thrash 7 looks sutably impressed
[21:03] <African Man> Welcome to the hospitality of King Musa I----please enjoy yourselves!
[21:03] <The Magistra> It's like a giant party.
[21:03] <African Man> Eat all you wish!
[21:04] * Aratasujou moves to a new location while still transmitting out.
[21:04] <Saki (Camoflague]> (Why are they interested int his man)
[21:04] *** it seems that something is reflecting the light. You can't get a good shot.
[21:05] * Saki (Camoflague] shrugs,m that's fine
[21:05] *** The man directs a group of the slaves to begin singing. They do. It's hauntingly beautiful.
[21:05] * Saki (Camoflague] instrad calculates a scattrer pattern to get everyone in that procression
[21:05] *** The reflection as about the woman's eyes.
[21:05] * Saki (Camoflague] fires over them all.
[21:05] <African Man> You can get a "shot" shot--pow pow, but not a good look at her eyes (Aratasujou)
[21:05] *** ^
[21:06] <The Magistra> Father, can you scan the food, just to be safe. I'd do it but my sword is a bit.. Anti stealth
[21:06] *** The one thing Sakura April does NOT do is miss. She doesn't.
[21:06] * Saki (Camoflague] rerearches mansa musa quickly using her own database
[21:07] <Saki (Camoflague]> (So-called richest person in history)
[21:07] *** The camp has a place where bread and food and dates are being passed out, but it also has a spot where it appears that important people from the city are being ushered----they are searched before going in, though.
[21:07] <Aratasujou> Subject has active countermeasures engaged to avoid identification. The Veiled Woman is definitely at the heart of all this.
[21:07] <Saki (Camoflague]> ( land was laden with lucrative natural resources, most notably gold. )
[21:07] <Saki (Camoflague]> (Enclave is based on land from Africa)
[21:07] *** The Camp ALSO has a large table where very wealthy-looking people are dropping things off----some are the servants, but others by Mamluks from the city. This table seems to be filled with lavish gifts that look very interesting.
[21:08] <Saki (Camoflague]> (the world caught wind of his great fortune in 1324, when he made the nearly 4,000 mile pilgrimage to Mecca, in order to fulfill one of the five pillars of Islam.)
[21:08] <Saki (Camoflague]> (Mansa Musa's reportedly 60,000-strong caravan was said to include 1,000 attendants, 100 camels loaded with gold, plenty of the emperor's own personal musicians, and 500 slaves bearing gold staffs)
[21:08] *** EVEN MORE Gold-laden slaves, beasts, and servants come over the horizon into view.
[21:08] <Saki (Camoflague]> [["at each halt, he would regale us with rare foods and confectionery. His equipment and furnishings were carried by 12,000 private slave women, wearing gowns of brocade and Yemeni silk."]
[21:09] <Saki (Camoflague]> [[On his stop in Cairo, he spent so much gold to the poor that he caused mass inflation.]
[21:09] <The Magistra> Yeesh it's like that parade from Aladin
[21:09] *** The people that Jack Harkness promised generosity to are being given gold dust---right this very second.
[21:09] *** Actually, this makes the Prince Ali sequence look chintzy by comparison.
[21:09] * Saki (Camoflague] drops to the ground still camoflagued
[21:10] * Aratasujou tries to get a better line-of-sight view of the Veiled Woman and this time goes for optical identification the old fashioned way: sketch artistry.
[21:10] * Saki (Camoflague] gets closer to Harkness who has been coming up the perimeter dfressed as a bum
[21:10] *** The slaves continue singing and performing beautifully---some of the envoys from the African caravan start to notice them.
[21:10] <The Magistra> Were they listening to us? Did they spy on us then come here just to save face?
[21:11] <Saki (Camoflague]> That woman is probably the one we need JAck
[21:11] * Captain Jack Harkness has moved to: [ Beggar's Rags ]
[21:11] <Captain Jack Harkness> [Beggar's Rags] With that level of tech what does she need with his money?
[21:11] * African Man tells Thrash and Kate that they are welcome to enjoy all the food and song they wish---but points out that the area over there which is guarded is where VIPs are going further into the camp, and also where gifts are being dropped off.
[21:12] * Aratasujou moves in closer to the Veiled Woman, keeping her camouflager engaged, just to see what her reaction is.
[21:12] <Saki (Camoflague]> It could e his land theyre after in prep for a future action.
[21:12] <Saki (Camoflague]> if his lands form the basis for Enclave.
[21:12] *** The interesting thing about some Arabian veils is that they blur the outline of the feminine body. You couldn't be fighting a more uphill batle to identify this person.
[21:12] <Saki (Camoflague]> OR they want to gain control of his empire for some reason
[21:12] *** EVERYBODY in the procession who was invited to the party spot, roll 1d20
[21:12] * Aratasujou tests her communications contact with everyone else, looking to see just who she has contact with.
[21:13] * Saki (Camoflague] is on dead radio silence still
[21:13] <Saki (Camoflague]> Question is do we catch this woman or rely on my tagging
[21:13] <Captain Jack Harkness> [Beggar's Rags] If they're high tech enough they may be able to block it
[21:13] <Aratasujou> Testing. Switching to burst transmission, high-frequency scramble on Federation/Imperium cipher.
[21:14] <Captain Jack Harkness> [Beggar's Rags] But how do we catch her with all these people around?
[21:14] *** The guards, slavemaster, veiled woman all encourage (order) the slavesd to continue to perform. One of these slaves, btw, would be recognized by Intern as the person from Abu's house.
[21:14] <Captain Jack Harkness> [Beggar's Rags] we can't exactly cause a scene
[21:14] <Aratasujou> Gold also used for high-tech manufacturing. Particularly as a conductor.
[21:15] <spiritflame> Nana Asahina (Local) rolls 1d20 [ 18 ]
[21:15] <TomorrowIsMine> I could cause a scene elsewhere. Summon up a demon to terrorize an empty area...
[21:15] <Saki (Camoflague]> War on a different level. Jame their tech. Cause them to leave this area.
[21:15] <spiritflame> Thrash 7 rolls 1d20 [ 20 ]
[21:15] <Saki (Camoflague]> but they may just flee the scene
[21:15] <spiritflame> Kate rolls 1d20 [ 12 ]
[21:15] <spiritflame> The Magistra rolls 1d20 [ 9 ]
[21:15] <For Nana Asahina> [SPOILER] There's armor and weapons on the confiscation and check table, but you also see what SEEMS to be a gun.
[21:16] * Saki (Camoflague] unfortunately has no way fo knowing ewho the woman was intern saw
[21:16] *** Nobody else can see anything at your location in the camp right now.
[21:16] <Aratasujou> If a distraction is needed, I can provide. Current location: roof of the slave market.
[21:17] <Nana Asahina (Local)> (A gun during the medieval times?)
[21:18] * 21:18] * @The Intern sends not exaclty a message thorough the time portal. it's just static. But, every time saki looks in the direction of that owman, the statiuc just JUST a bit more annoying
[21:18] * Saki (Camoflague] grimaches wtf is that interference
[21:19] * Aratasujou is still trying to sketch the Woman, using ALL of her processing abilities to visually deduce and determine her features and profile based from observation from multiple vantage points.
[21:19] *** The party in the camp continues. Some important looking Mamluk officials enter through the guarded gate, leave their weapons, and some gifts, and go further in.
[21:19] * Saki (Camoflague] takes a few momentsto realize it only intensifies int he fdirection of one slave oman
[21:19] *** Aratasujou, you can't do it. The veil blocks your ever sense. Radar, Lidar, Neutron scans.... eyes... everything.
[21:20] <spiritflame> ??? rolls 1d100 [ 19 ]
[21:20] <Saki (Camoflague]> (What's the deal with that woman)
[21:20] * The woman in question coughs twice.
[21:21] <Aratasujou> Update: the Veiled Woman is now a Priority. All my scans are being actively blocked by her in ways not possible for this period in time or tech development.
[21:21] * Aratasujou transmits via pulse-comm and telepathy.
[21:21] <TomorrowIsMine> Do you want me to grab her?
[21:21] *** EVEN MORE pilgrims in service of the great ruler come over the horizon. The town is quickly becoming more like a Chuck E. Cheese (even has some robots) than a medieval village.
[21:21] * The woman looks at Aratasujou.
[21:21] *** Aratasujou is is an incredibly cute looking fox-girl, barely two feet high, with dazzling blue eyes, a pale complexion, and long deep brown hair. She's fun-loving, eternally happy. More information about her is Here.
Her image Song is: "Repo! The Genetic Opera - Zydrate Anatomy" . She is Level 2.

[21:22] <Saki (Camoflague]> Yes. Can toy pull her into Purgaatorio
[21:22] <Saki (Camoflague]> Can you
[21:22] * Nana Asahina (Local) inspects the table more closely
[21:22] * Aratasujou moves to a new location, seeing if the Veiled Woman continues to look at her.
[21:22] <Saki (Camoflague]> this may start a scene if she vanishes but we have to make a move here.
[21:23] * Kate is just watching all this in wonder
[21:23] <For Nana Asahina> [SPOILER] You see what appear to be many weapons and armor of this era. Daggers, scimitars, and all kinds of gifts, sashes, etc. But one of the armors if unlike all the others---it is jet black, and has no reflection at all.
[21:23] <Saki (Camoflague]> and scans aren't working and radio isn't safe
[21:23] <Saki (Camoflague]> We needt to fidn out what'ws wrong with her and how it started
[21:23] * Nana Asahina (Local) looks closer at the armor
[21:24] * TomorrowIsMine heads to the woman, and opens a portal between Purgatrio and the huaman world for a mooment, and reachs out to pull her in.
[21:24] * Aratasujou transmits a burst-comm signal of nothing but PSY's "Gentleman" video in an attempt to distract the Veiled Woman.
[21:24] <For Nana Asahina> [SPOILER] The armor is unlike any you have ever seen. It's near the same table that has the apparent gun.
[21:25] <spiritflame> Veiled Woman rolls 1d20 [ 2 ]
[21:25] * Veiled Woman doesn't notice the hand until it is too late.
[21:25] * Nana Asahina (Local) looks at the armor and the gun, she tries to discern why it's different than the others.
[21:25] * Veiled Woman shouts something in a language that is not in the databases as you snatch her up.
[21:26] <Saki (Camoflague]>
[21:26] * Aratasujou attempts to reactivate her multi-scanners at the Veiled Woman is snatched away. Does the jamming end?
[21:26] <For Nana> [SPOILER] Well, the gun is unique because it is THE ONLY GUN HERE EVER. Also, remember, who would wear black armor in the desert? Very unusual.
[21:26] <spiritflame> ??? rolls 3d6 [ 6, 5, 6 ]
[21:27] * You are STILL being jammed.
[21:27] * Veiled Woman screams that she's failed as she's pulled through the portal.
[21:27] * Thrash 7 shares stories of some of the places he's been....OBVIOUSLY they're just fairly tales and made up, right?
[21:27] * Captain Jack Harkness [Beggar's Rags] fires up his voertex manipulator and tries ot set up a counterjam
[21:28] <spiritflame> Veiled Woman rolls 1d20 Jack [ 5 ]
[21:28] <TomorrowIsMine> Oh relax. We're still here. Just a step to the left.
[21:28] *** Roll 1d20 then, Jack.
[21:28] * Veiled Woman turns and looks at this person.
[21:28] * Veiled Woman looks at ToorrowisMine.
[21:28] *** ToorrowisMine is your average everyday ToorrowisMine

[21:28] <spiritflame> Captain Jack Harkness rolls 1d20 [ 8 ]
[21:28] * Veiled Woman looks at Tomorrrowismine.
[21:28] *** Tomorrrowismine is your average everyday Tomorrrowismine

[21:28] <spiritflame> ??? rolls 1d20 [ 7 ]
[21:28] * Saki (Camoflague] keeps her eyes on the sancing slave girl
[21:28] * Nana Asahina (Local) tries to inquire someone about the strange objects.
[21:29] *** Comms and sensors are now up.
[21:29] <African Guard> Halt---what are you doing here?
[21:29] * African Guard stops Nana Asahina before she gets to the table.
[21:29] <Aratasujou> SQUEAK Reestablishing communications. Status update requested.
[21:29] <Saki (Camoflague]> <<Good work Jack!>>
[21:29] <African Guard> Do you have visitation business, or a gift for the Emperor?
[21:29] <Saki (Camoflague]> <<That dancing Concubine ther who is sick. WE need her too>>
[21:29] * TomorrowIsMine looks in the mirror.
[21:29] *** TomorrowIsMine is

Her image Song is: Tomorrow is Mine. She is Level 1.

[21:29] * Aratasujou resumes active scanning of the entire area.
[21:30] <Saki (Camoflague]> <<There may be a multi-level plot happening here>>
[21:30] <Aratasujou> Veiled Woman captured.
[21:30] <Saki (Camoflague]> <<Perfect. Now get me that concubine>>
[21:30] * Saki (Camoflague] has another theory running in parallel
[21:30] * Veiled Woman looks at Bayonetta, and tries REALLY hard to touch or contact the guards, and the slavemaster--anyone.
[21:31] * Saki (Camoflague] has an idea
[21:31] <spiritflame> Saki (Camoflague] rolls 1d20 to see if she has tranqs in her ammo set [ 2 ]
[21:31] <Saki (Camoflague]> F[BLEEP]K
[21:31] * Aratasujou searches for whichever slave-girl Sakura-April designated for observation/tracking/capture.
[21:31] * TomorrowIsMine notes it's impossible, you just pass though them. You can touch objects though. That said, Bayonetta hasn't released her grip and she's pretty strong.
[21:31] *** HAH---Saki using non-lethal. YOU DESERVE THIS!
[21:31] <Saki (Camoflague]> Scan that slave girl [the one intern saw]] for E-particles.
[21:32] * Thrash 7 is currently describing a city made entiarly of glass!
[21:32] <Aratasujou> Commencing.
[21:32] <Saki (Camoflague]> If she has them we need to knock her out and prevent her contact with the emperor
[21:32] * Aratasujou scans the designated slave-girl for E-particles.
[21:32] <Saki (Camoflague]> DISCREETLY (got i hate my life right now)
[21:32] *** The people LOVE thrash's story, and suggest that some of the other important people in the camp might want to hear about his travels.
[21:32] * Nana Asahina (Local) asks the guard what the two tiems are, but says strange items.
[21:33] * Thrash 7 says he would be more then happy to tell these tales he has gathered
[21:33] <African Guard> Well, young lady, those are the weapons and armor that we confiscate and keep here until thir wearers return. Weaons are not allowed in our Master's presence. That table right there is filled with gifts people here have given to our Emperor, Musa I.
[21:33] <Aratasujou> I can engage in non-lethal capture operations as needed. I possess electro-laser weaponry specialized for incapacitation.
[21:33] * Designated-slave girl has anomalous masses of cell growth in several points throughout her body.
[21:34] * Designated-slave girl coughs as she is scanned.
[21:34] * Aratasujou switches to a Medscanner to examine those growths more carefully.
[21:34] <Saki (Camoflague]> << we need to tase her so it looks like she's collapsed but not in su.... got it
[21:34] * Designated-slave girl rests from her performance, as the slaves are told they can stop, for now. Their owner is speaking with one of the Africans.
[21:34] * Saki (Camoflague] is now known as Royal Attendant
[21:35] <Aratasujou> Anomalous cell growths detected! Recommend immediate capture and quarantine!
[21:35] <Royal Attendant> /nove Camoflague
[21:35] * Royal Attendant has moved to: [ Camoflague ]
[21:35] * Royal Attendant [Camoflague] goes near the girl still camopflagued
[21:35] *** Be careful.
[21:35] * TomorrowIsMine considers. And summons Madama butterfly's hand to hold the Veiled woman for her. "Keep her safe but don't hurt her." The hand gives bayonetta and OK Sign before gently grabbing the woman
[21:35] <Royal Attendant> [Camoflague] <<knock her out. I will appear, say i'm getting her help and we';ll wehisk her away >>
[21:35] * Aratasujou moves in closer to get in range for her electro-laser.
[21:35] *** The slaves are on an auction block and are being watched continually for attempts at escape.
[21:36] <Royal Attendant> [Camoflague] <<s[BLEEP]t wait>>
[21:36] *** Don't get spotted. The guards are only several FEET away from you.
[21:36] * Aratasujou waits.
[21:36] <Royal Attendant> [Camoflague] <<I could use suiggestions here.>>
[21:37] * Royal Attendant [Camoflague] coniders buying her but doesn't know how much gold the others might have ion hand
[21:37] <Royal Attendant> [Camoflague] .....
[21:37] <Royal Attendant> [Camoflague] /nock Exact Copy of Slave Girl
[21:37] * Royal Attendant is now known as Exact Copy of Slave Girl
[21:37] <Aratasujou> Bayoneta. Have her prepare to capture the slave-girl. I'll shoot the girl to stun her, and Bayoneta can capture her at the exact same moment.
[21:37] * Exact Copy of Slave Girl still in thermoptic cam gets behind the slave girl
[21:38] <Exact Copy of Slave Girl> <<no listen>>
[21:38] * Aratasujou listens
[21:38] *** roll 1d100. You will be spotted on less than a 3
[21:38] * TomorrowIsMine rejoins Saki. "I'm here. Madama Butterfly is holding the woman for me. Last thing we need is her escapeing into purgatiro and getting lost"
[21:38] <Exact Copy of Slave Girl> <<Bayo, grab her and I will take her place immedately, so it looks like she staggered but then I will be right there >>
[21:38] *** even the best camoflage can be spoiled by a squeaky piece of wood, or the rapt attention of a proficient guard.
[21:38] <spiritflame> Exact Copy of Slave Girl rolls 1d100 [ 20 ]
[21:38] *** Nobody notices you.
[21:39] <Exact Copy of Slave Girl> <<I'm in position>>
[21:39] *** Even ore camels and pilgrims come into the city. They make camps, put up tents, cook food---they nevr ask anybodyfor anything.
[21:39] * Aratasujou continues to medscan the slave-girl, attempting to identify the nature of those tumors.
[21:39] <Exact Copy of Slave Girl> <<Bayo you'rte up, maki this super quick>>
[21:39] *** Arasu-, who are you scanning?
[21:39] <Aratasujou> Snatch her from below, so it appears as she's falling down.
[21:40] * Aratasujou is scanning the slave-girl they're about to capture.
[21:40] * Designated-slave girl has uncontrolled cell growth at such a profound rate that her body temperature is higher than normal in the places of the growth.
[21:40] * Exact Copy of Slave Girl sets an automatic function - as soon as the slave girl is grabbed she will drop camo and look like all is well
[21:40] <Nana Asahina (Local)> Visitation
[21:41] <Nana Asahina (Local)> *Ah, I see
[21:41] * TomorrowIsMine grabs the real slave girl and pulls her into purgatiro as well. She passes her off to Madama Butterfly's other hand
[21:41] <Aratasujou> Caution advised. The girl is not well. Tumors have grown throughout her body and have raised her body temperature.
[21:41] * Exact Copy of Slave Girl drops cloak at the exact moment
[21:41] * Exact Copy of Slave Girl coughs and stands again
[21:41] <Nana Asahina (Local)> who were the strange items confiscated from?
[21:41] * Exact Copy of Slave Girl makes it look like her illness caused her to stagger
[21:41] * Kate does ask a few questions of what this is or what that is...Thrash explaining that they have travelled a long while and his granddaughter is curious of each place they visit
[21:41] * Designated-slave girl screams! When she sees the veiled woman is there, they cry out to each other in an unknown tongue, but the veiled woman tells the slave-girl to be absolutely silent, and she obeys.
[21:42] <Aratasujou> Confirmed. Slave-girl is now in our custody.
[21:42] <Exact Copy of Slave Girl> <<now figure out what's wrong with her . all scans >>
[21:42] *** Congratulations, Sakura April---you are now a slave!
[21:42] *** good job!
[21:42] <Exact Copy of Slave Girl> <<I'll have to stay here until I can find an opportunity to escape >>
[21:42] <Exact Copy of Slave Girl> ..|..
[21:42] <Aratasujou> Both women are communicating with each other. Unknown language, but they clearly understand each other.
[21:42] * Exact Copy of Slave Girl can get out any time she wants, it's just a question of how many die first :P
[21:43] <TomorrowIsMine> <<Arasu, you can see into Purgatiro? Good.
[21:43] * Exact Copy of Slave Girl however is a pro.
[21:43] <Exact Copy of Slave Girl> << listen, if they're speaking a computer can eventually decipther their lkanguiage. grab jack >>
[21:43] * Owner of the slave market looks around, puzzled that he cannot find his wife, but then gives the order that the slaves perform again.
[21:43] * Exact Copy of Slave Girl saw the dance before.
[21:44] <Aratasujou> My arcanotech enables me to do quite a few things! Moving towards Captain Harkness' position.
[21:44] <Aratasujou> Wait. Better idea.
[21:44] * Exact Copy of Slave Girl does the dance, but also throws in a few moves worth of an orion slave girl. VERY appealing. Won't the interested party Just Love. Her.
[21:44] *** do you perform it? The person you are imitating didn't dance. DO YOU peforrm or not?
[21:44] * Aratasujou attempts to prompt Captain Harkness. "Are you receiving?"
[21:44] *** that's a yes.
[21:44] * Exact Copy of Slave Girl does. wha can you do XD
[21:44] * Owner of the slave market walks over to Sakura April, AMAZED.
[21:45] <Exact Copy of Slave Girl> ^_~
[21:45] <Owner of the slave market> Bulbul... I did not know you could do that---and at your age? Why did you not tell me you could do this in addition to cooking?
[21:45] * Exact Copy of Slave Girl coughs
[21:45] * Exact Copy of Slave Girl makes like she has a cold messing up her voice
[21:45] * Aratasujou was listening to and recorded the conversation between the two women (brief as it was).
[21:46] <Exact Copy of Slave Girl> woman... must not reveal... all... secrets *cough*
[21:46] *** Aratasujou, these women have numerous DNA anomalies that dont' jive with humans. They have extra chromosomes, different protein structures, cells designed for apoptosis.... and did I mention they are trying REALLY hard to get away?
[21:46] *** Thrash, do you look around the encampment?
[21:46] *** Or do you stay in one place?
[21:47] * TomorrowIsMine notes a giant demon woman the size of a skyscraper is holding them in her hands, though the rest of her is elsewhere. Escaping is probably a bad idea
[21:47] <Aratasujou> Captain Harkness, communication between the two captured woman occurred. Language is an unknown one, but they clearly understand each other. They are also NOT Terrans. DNA and protein structures are NOT native to this world.
[21:47] <Owner of the slave market> Bulbul, you don't need to do that. Abu told me that you are sick.... I promise I will do my best to see you to a place where you will grow better. As I told you before, I am sorry. We will all do what we must.
[21:47] <Captain Jack Harkness> [Beggar's Rags] /sq
[21:48] <Owner of the slave market> Please. Rest.
[21:48] * Aratasujou transmits a copy of the audio file containing their brief conversation to Captain Harkness.
[21:48] <Captain Jack Harkness> [Beggar's Rags] maybe they're just VERY sick humans. Think Venom, the Symbiote.
[21:48] * Owner of the slave market motions to a guard to provide shade to the slaves now. They raise an awning, for now.
[21:48] <Aratasujou> Transmitting to you for analysis.
[21:48] <Owner of the slave market> You shall perform again soon.
[21:48] <Captain Jack Harkness> [Beggar's Rags] /em tries running the convo through his vortex manipulator to get a linguisitic breakdown and possible translation matrix
[21:48] * Owner of the slave market continues talking to the men from Africa, apologizing for leaving the convesation.
[21:48] *** Jack, roll 1d20----the language itself seems to be encoded!
[21:48] * Exact Copy of Slave Girl nods, and stagegs, making like she's VERY weak
[21:49] <Captain Jack Harkness> [Beggar's Rags] /rol 1d20
[21:49] <spiritflame> Captain Jack Harkness rolls 1d20 [ 8 ]
[21:49] * Aratasujou also transmits the medical scans she made off of both women, including the DNA.
[21:49] * Exact Copy of Slave Girl drops to her knees, she can barely stand! oh no!
[21:49] *** The language seems to actively encrypt and jam your electronic systems!
[21:49] * Exact Copy of Slave Girl goes intoa coughing spasm
[21:50] * Captain Jack Harkness [Beggar's Rags] shuts down the vvortex manipulator!
[21:50] *** in fact, it might actually cause a computer to FAIL now that you have run it through there---roll again.
[21:50] <spiritflame> Captain Jack Harkness rolls 1d20 [ 12 ]
[21:50] *** You are lucky.
[21:50] <Captain Jack Harkness> [Beggar's Rags] this is some next-level s[BLEEP]t.
[21:50] <Captain Jack Harkness> [Beggar's Rags] they could be metahumans or more. That language itself could be sentient.
[21:50] <Aratasujou> Unlikely. Illness would not cause extra chromosomes or cells designed for apoptosis.
[21:51] *** Thrash, Magistra, Owanidandana, Kate, do you look around inside the encampment or stay in one place?
[21:51] <Captain Jack Harkness> [Beggar's Rags] But the illness could be cause by an alien cell invasion.
[21:51] <Exact Copy of Slave Girl> need.. .lie... down...
[21:51] <Aratasujou> Or weaponized retroviral genetic engineering.
[21:51] * The Magistra will defer to her father, since he's here. She'd rather not upset him.
[21:51] *** The slaves that were singing together cough again, and a couple of them rub the other ones or help the up.
[21:51] * Exact Copy of Slave Girl coughs more and more, looking very bad. She subtly alters her face to look very guant
[21:52] <Aratasujou> ...
[21:52] * Exact Copy of Slave Girl collapses and acts a "Dead weight"
[21:52] <Owner of the slave market> (arabic) Oh gosh... I knew it... I was afraid of this... get her out of here before somebody sees her.
[21:52] * Exact Copy of Slave Girl is basically doing all she can to.. :3
[21:52] * Thrash 7 explains to Magistra and Kate about some of the interesting sociatal aspects of this time period
[21:52] * Exact Copy of Slave Girl laters her mass enough to let them be able to lift her
[21:53] * Aratasujou attempts to link to Captain Harkness' systems in order to run a theoretical prediction of just WHAT the captured slave-girl's condition would do if it was accelerated.
[21:53] *** Two of the slave market guards take hold of the "slave girl" and put her back into the building. They lock the room, of course, because they aren't stupid.
[21:53] * Captain Jack Harkness [Beggar's Rags] reboots the VM and lets her try
[21:53] * Exact Copy of Slave Girl waits till the guards are out of the room
[21:54] * Aratasujou casts Enhance on herself to technomagically amplify her biocomp's processing power to do this.
[21:54] *** It looks like the cell growths are growing towards one another into a single mass, concentrated in her abdomen---there is already a cell growth making an unusual connection from the tumor-like mass to her central nervous system.
[21:54] <The Magistra> /sqeak Father, I'm going to look around a bit. Shout if you need me alright.
[21:54] *** By the way, the slave woman clearly doesn't have the stamina of the veiled woman. She appears much more feeble and less determined.
[21:55] * Exact Copy of Slave Girl lays there for a bit and decides to fdirect traffic before escaping. She coughs and coughs to keep up the ruse
[21:55] * African Guard looks at The Magistra.
[21:55] *** The Magistra is is Eitak and Thrash's daughter Riyana. Her red hair hangs down over one shoulder and she wears a white leather vest over a blue turtleneck tank, a beige skirt, knee high combat boots and gloves. A green cloth hangs off a shoulder. She has green eyes. More information about her is Here.
Her image Song is: Histora Crux. She is Level 6.

[21:55] * The Magistra heads off to look around unless Thrash or Kate stop her.
[21:55] * Aratasujou attempts to predict what that unusual connection might result in, using Captain Harkness' VM database for comparisons.
[21:55] *** I suppose you do NOT look like this now, Magistra?
[21:56] <Exact Copy of Slave Girl> <<Get Thrash-tachi back into Purgatorio and JAck too, Time to start a brain trust and determine what'a happening
[21:56] * The Magistra does not. She's disguised to look like a random villager that could pass for Thrash's daughter
[21:56] *** The guards leave Sakura alone----sickness is VERY dangerous in this time period. They don't look happy to have touched her at all.
[21:56] *** Roll 1d20, computer inside Aratasujou
[21:56] <Exact Copy of Slave Girl> <<Since I can;'t go in there we're going to have to confernece like this>>
[21:56] <spiritflame> Aratasujou rolls 1d20 [ 9 ]
[21:56] * African Guard stops The Magistra.
[21:57] *** Your processors fail you.
[21:57] <The Magistra> Oh, sorry sir, I must have taken a wrong turn.
[21:57] * The Magistra hurries back to her father.
[21:57] <African Guard> Hold, young lady. This is the direction of the interior of the camp, and it is reserved for those who are being examined for employment bythe Emperor, wish to visit with him, or wish to leave a gift.
[21:58] <Thrash 7> forgive her...she is a bold young woman and is very curious
[21:58] <African Guard> Unless you wish to present yourself to return to Mali, have a gift, you should return from whence you came---there is much food and music over there. And, if you try to go through this gate, we have to take your weapons and put them on THAT table (points to a table)
[21:58] * The Magistra appolgizes again as she hurries back
[21:58] * Aratasujou uploads all of her data to Captain Harkness. "Unable to determine what is happening with the tumor growth. However, based on how this is not at all natural, assume that her condition is deliberate and dangerous."
[21:59] *** Very well then.
[21:59] * TomorrowIsMine sends the rest of the group locations that are out of the way, she opens portals to purgatio there for them
[21:59] * Another woman wearing a veil enters the same camp where Thrash, Magisra, and Kate are.
[22:00] <spiritflame> Another woman wearing a veil rolls 1d10 [ 3 ]
[22:00] * Another woman wearing a veil doesn't notice the PCs, and goes over to the gate. She starts speaking to the guards their, explaining that she is the wife an architect that is already in the encampment.
[22:00] <Aratasujou> Advise that both the slave-girl and the Veiled Woman be doubly-quarantined AND separated from each other for now. Communication between them confirmed. If kept together they may fabricate a story between themselves to confound interrogation.
[22:00] <Exact Copy of Slave Girl> << we need to find a way to interrogate that vieled woman. Can we use telepathy? >>
[22:01] <Aratasujou> I can.
[22:01] <Thrash 7> what did you think you were doing there!?
[22:01] * Madama butterfly pulls them apart, the portals she's sticking out of moving to acomidate
[22:02] *** The captives in Purgatorio have given up their struggles, exhausted, and realizing it is hopeless. They remain silent, and every once in a while, looking at each other.
[22:02] <The Magistra> I really did not plan to go that way. That said Bayonetta wants us to head and enter one of her portals
[22:02] <Exact Copy of Slave Girl> << Run checks on the one wwho is sick for medical , biologial , magical infection >>
[22:02] <Exact Copy of Slave Girl> << get the viel off the vieled one >>
[22:03] <Exact Copy of Slave Girl> << let's see who we'r edealing with >>
[22:03] *** The Mali guards explain to this new woman that even she must be searched before passing the gate. She declines, and says that she hopes that King Mansa enjoyes the present her husband gave him.
[22:03] * Aratasujou attempts to open a telepathic comm-channel with the Veiled Woman. She doesn't send any messages, but just listens to see if the surface thoughts of a mind unused to telepathic communication give anything away by accident.
[22:03] <Another woman wearing a veil> She says that she helped design it, and that it was all too easy.
[22:04] * Aratasujou also runs a detailed, close-range multi-scan on the sick Slave-girl, taking her time with it all.
[22:04] * Another woman wearing a veil says that she helped design the gift for him, and hopes he will enjoy it, and that creating it was all too easy.
[22:05] * TomorrowIsMine jumps up into M.B.'s hand "Excuse me, I know one must never be bare headed but this is a speical case" and snatchs the woman's veil
[22:05] * Exact Copy of Slave Girl eventually stands and pokes a hole in the wall discreetly
[22:05] *** so you are snatching the veil from a woman in Arabia?
[22:05] *** y/n
[22:06] * Aratasujou notes that the woman in question is in Purgatorio, not Arabia! :P
[22:06] * Captain Jack Harkness [Beggar's Rags] joins the group
[22:06] * Captain Jack Harkness has moved to: [ Pugatorio ]
[22:06] * TomorrowIsMine totally is taking from a woman who's basically a ghost anywys
[22:06] * TomorrowIsMine has moved to: [ Purgatiro ]
[22:06] * Captive Slave Girl is in her late 30's early 40's, beyond child-bearing age, but her belly swells like shs is pregnant. She has proteins in her body and an immune system that seems focused on very different antigens than a typical humans, and even her DNA is very different---she has differnet chromosomes and a very unusual brainwave pattern. She looks at you stolidly.
[22:07] <Aratasujou> We should monitor Mansa Musa himself. This may be an attempt to assassinate or steal something in his possession.
[22:07] * Captain Jack Harkness [Pugatorio] stays out of the wya so eh's not looking at the woman when the viel is lifted,
[22:07] * Formerly Veiled woman has black hair, green eyes, and a face that has scars on it. She glares daggers at you.
[22:07] <Formerly Veiled woman> ......
[22:08] <Captain Jack Harkness> [Pugatorio] We could use Magistra here for more scans and checks so you can be freed up to check on Musa.
[22:08] <Formerly Veiled woman> !
[22:08] <Formerly Veiled woman> I will tell you NOTHING.
[22:08] <Captain Jack Harkness> [Pugatorio] ...She speaks~
[22:08] <Bulbul the Concubine> I will tell you NOTHING.
[22:08] * The Magistra has moved to: [ Purgatiro ]
[22:08] <Aratasujou> Scanning slave-girl. She's beyond normal child-bearing age. DNA very different. Unusual brain-wave patterns detected. Non-standard immune system.
[22:09] * The Magistra [Purgatiro] splits off from her father and heads to the out of the way location and enters Bayonetta's portal.
[22:09] <Captain Jack Harkness> [Pugatorio] She's either a genetically enginenered human or somehting is happening to her.
[22:09] <The Magistra> [Purgatiro] I'm here now.
[22:09] <Captain Jack Harkness> [Pugatorio] Scan these ladies magically.
[22:09] *** Meanwhile, at the encampment, the party grows and grows. Many important looking people arrive to speak to the Africans. Some of them even leave gifts with the guards.
[22:09] * Aratasujou scans the slave-girl's belly. Has her pregnancy been advancing WHILE she's been captured?! How far along was she before she was captured?
[22:09] * TomorrowIsMine [Purgatiro] heads over to the party, walking up walls if she has to to get in
[22:09] <Bulbul the Concubine> ??????
[22:09] <Captain Jack Harkness> [Pugatorio] Saki hjas said earler she was afraid that there might be sometthing to do with Enclave, Simon or a Lich
[22:10] * Thrash 7 is staying along with his daughter and granddaughter and being totally unassuming
[22:10] <Formerly Veiled Woman> ??????
[22:10] * The Magistra [Purgatiro] scans them both with her gunblade's sonics and with various spells
[22:10] <Captain Jack Harkness> [Pugatorio] They could be "cursed" somehow.
[22:10] * Aratasujou attempts to cast Comprehend Languages on the Formerly Veiled Woman.
[22:11] <Captain Jack Harkness> [Pugatorio] But why would this one be scan-resistant.
[22:11] *** The two women look very fearful if you point that thing at them, but they close their eyes and try to will their faces to be calm.
[22:11] * Formerly Veiled Woman can be scanned now---but ONLY on her face.
[22:11] * The Magistra [Purgatiro] is actully pointing the handle at them
[22:11] <Captain Jack Harkness> [Pugatorio] We're nto here tyo hurt you.
[22:11] * Aratasujou is still also trying to listen in on them both telepathically.
[22:11] <The Magistra> [Purgatiro] It's her clothes that were blocking the scan.
[22:12] <Formerly Veiled Woman> <<Arabic>> I'll tell you NOTHING. Nothing.
[22:12] <Captain Jack Harkness> [Pugatorio] Analysr that veil. Maybe we can get a sense of what tech was used to make it.
[22:12] <Aratasujou> Examine her clothes then. If they were blocking scans, then that means the presence of advanced materials.
[22:12] <Nana Asahina (Local)> I am here to see his magesty
[22:12] * Exact Copy of Slave Girl has had it with being a prisoner
[22:12] * The Magistra [Purgatiro] scans the veil too
[22:12] <Aratasujou> That means possible Arcanotech or xenotech.
[22:12] <Exact Copy of Slave Girl> /moe Camoflague
[22:13] * Exact Copy of Slave Girl has moved to: [ Camoflague ]
[22:13] * Exact Copy of Slave Girl [Camoflague] knocks on the door to her room and just stands off to the side, invisble
[22:13] *** The veil stops the scan. You get nothing.
[22:13] *** Nobody answers the knock of a slave.
[22:13] *** African guards ask what business Nana Asahina has going to the VIP areas.
[22:14] * Exact Copy of Slave Girl [Camoflague] shrugs and looks at how the door is connected to the frame of the room
[22:14] * Mali Guard looks at Nana Asahina.
[22:14] *** Nana Asahina is your average everyday Nana Asahina

[22:14] * Aratasujou is still trying to determine just how fast that "pregnancy" is developing. How far along is she currently and was she this far along an hour ago? Pregnant female slaves typically aren't sold since the baby would be a lost investment.
[22:14] *** Wooden door.
[22:14] <Exact Copy of Slave Girl> [Camoflague] (Metal hinges?)
[22:14] *** Sure, yes.
[22:15] * Exact Copy of Slave Girl [Camoflague] steps back and uses her metal control to just lift the pins out of the hinges and lets the door fall inwards.
[22:15] *** The woman's uncontrolled cell growths will---if not interrupted, grow to the size of a human infant in less than a month. In another month they will bet 2x the size... in another month 3.4 times the size of a neonate human.
[22:15] * Exact Copy of Slave Girl [Camoflague] stays invisible and still
[22:15] <Nana Asahina (Local)> I am here to see his magesty about thanking him for his generosity.
[22:16] * Aratasujou sends her findings to everyone! "Slave-girl now designated a possible Biohazard."
[22:16] * Exact Copy of Slave Girl [Camoflague] waits a few moments to see if guards notice the room is "Empty"
[22:16] <Mali Guard> Oh.... well His Majesty is already entertaining an audience tonight. However, if you wish to leave a gift, you may do so there. (Points to the table with the materials in question)
[22:17] <Exact Copy of Slave Girl> [Camoflague] << WAIT. if more than one girl is sick.... >>
[22:17] *** Thrash, Kate, roll 1d20 again.
[22:17] <Exact Copy of Slave Girl> [Camoflague] << ALL THOSE SICK GIRLS ARE POSSIBLE VECTORS >>
[22:17] <Nana Asahina (Local)> I shall leave a gift.
[22:17] <spiritflame> Thrash 7 rolls 1d20 [ 11 ]
[22:17] <Exact Copy of Slave Girl> [Camoflague] << AND THE -E-CELLS. ARE THERE E-CELLS IN THE FETUS>>
[22:18] <spiritflame> Kate rolls 1d20 [ 14 ]
[22:18] *** Kate, roll 1d3
[22:18] * Aratasujou scans for E-cells in the slave-girl's abdomin.
[22:18] * TomorrowIsMine [Purgatiro] looks to see how the VIP area is guarded
[22:18] * TomorrowIsMine [Purgatiro] can just walk though if it's just people
[22:18] <spiritflame> Kate rolls 1d3 [ 2 ]
[22:18] * Mali Guard points the way to the table, which does have a guard.
[22:18] * Aratasujou scans the developing fetus CLOSELY and THOROUGHLY.
[22:19] *** Kate, you see something that seems out of place there. One set of armor is black on the table.
[22:19] * Kate tugs to Thrash "'s..."
[22:19] * Nana Asahina (Local) goes over to the table and deposits some gold coins.
[22:19] <Thrash 7> yes I know....
[22:19] * Exact Copy of Slave Girl [Camoflague] eventually strolls out
[22:19] *** Oh it's not a fetus----fetuses have organs, etc... this one does too.... but it's genetic diferences compared to humanity are ove 100% greater than the "mother's."
[22:20] * Exact Copy of Slave Girl [Camoflague] looks to see where the other "sick girls" are.
[22:20] <Aratasujou> What fetus? Genetic differences are too far deviated to be considered Terran-normal.
[22:20] *** That said, it's growing---it's growing and growing and it's organs are all in different places and it has a heartbeat----in fact, there is an organ in the "fetus' that's giving a backup signal to the heart and lungs to function in the mother---the mass of tissue would stay alive even if the mother were decapitated.
[22:21] *** Thrash, roll again.
[22:21] <Thrash 7> excuse me...may you endulge an old man and tell me....where does that armor come from? it is unlike anything I have seen
[22:21] <spiritflame> Thrash 7 rolls 1d20 [ 14 ]
[22:21] * Exact Copy of Slave Girl [Camoflague] gets that tidbit of info and stops her plan... she was getitng set to straight up poison the other girls
[22:21] <Aratasujou> Under guidelines established by the Ordo Xenos, the fetus in the Slave-girl is now classified as a Xenos Threat.
[22:22] <Mali Guard> Oh.... that was left here by an architect that the king may employ to teach his people. HE left a most astounding gift fot the king---a machine that shoots gold dust!
[22:22] <Thrash 7> must have been a wonder to behold!
[22:22] <Aratasujou> Fetus is growing too fast to be Terran and has a non-human anatomical layout.
[22:23] * Aratasujou scans for E-particles inside the "fetus".
[22:23] <Exact Copy of Slave Girl> [Camoflague] <<run a simulation.. if the host was poisined, ould th emass be able to crry on growing?>>
[22:23] <Mali Guard> It was amazing! The king used it many times, and it delighted everyone. The architect's wife helped him make it, and she said that for some one with their skill, making such things is all too easy.
[22:24] * Exact Copy of Slave Girl [Camoflague] senses a much larger problem here. Something in the area is causing that infection.
[22:24] <Aratasujou> Confirmed. The mass has backup organs in place that would enable it to continue to survive and grow even if the woman was killed.
[22:24] <Exact Copy of Slave Girl> [Camoflague] <<Can we scan for that mass on its own? >>
[22:24] <Nana Asahina (Local)> hm.... who was the architect?
[22:24] <Thrash 7> did this archetect come from the lands within the empire?...I have seen no greater skill then this
[22:24] <Exact Copy of Slave Girl> [Camoflague] <<Can we see exactly how much of it is around here??>>
[22:24] * Mali Guard looks at Thrash 7.
[22:24] *** Thrash 7 is tall old man with white aged hair combed back, scruffy longish white beard and curled white moustache, dressed in a white shirt, dark waistcoat, dark bowtie and dark pants. He is Thrash's seventh incarnation.
His image Song is: . He is Level 1.

[22:24] <Aratasujou> Scans the mass directly.
[22:25] <Mali Guard> Oh no, the architect and his wife moved here four years ago with a caravan, about the same time the new Slave Market opened.
[22:25] * TomorrowIsMine [Purgatiro] tries to get into the VIP area.
[22:25] * Aratasujou Scans directly and closely.
[22:25] * Thrash 7 nods "these changing times...they surely bring wonders to behold"
[22:26] *** Bayonetta can do this, since she can go through walls----there are really REALLY important people there.... I dunno if you an hear them talking. Lots of people are addressing very important African men who are probably conversing in Arabic.
[22:26] *** Aratasujou, you are able to scan the fetus well enough to copy the DNA pattern, which could be studied later with the proper facility.
[22:27] * Aratasujou uploads her findings to both Captain Harkness and Sakura-April for further analysis and comment.
[22:27] * Captain Jack Harkness [Pugatorio] collects a cop of that.
[22:27] <Captain Jack Harkness> [Pugatorio] Thanks.
[22:27] <Aratasujou> Scans complete.
[22:27] <TomorrowIsMine> [Purgatiro] <<I'm in the secure area>>
[22:28] *** If Aratasujou's "batteries are low," she could probably stand by the portal or something so her camouflage wouldn't power down, maybe?"
[22:29] <Aratasujou> I'm going to begin a wide-area patrol of the town. I'll float to an altitude of 200 feet and provide live-stream video and scans for everyone.
[22:29] *** you sure you want to do that?
[22:29] *** and not go back to the portal where people might not be looking and where it would be non-descript and you could easily hide?
[22:29] <Captain Jack Harkness> [Pugatorio] Just sta her efor now.
[22:29] <Captain Jack Harkness> [Pugatorio] Stay here
[22:30] <Aratasujou> Very well. I will remain here and maintain the portal's security.
[22:30] <Captain Jack Harkness> [Pugatorio] We don't know if they have more allies or detectors out there.
[22:30] <Exact Copy of Slave Girl> [Camoflague] <<Jack send me the DNA data>>
[22:31] * Aratasujou is away: "I will make sure our two guests don't try to scarper away then."
[22:31] * Exact Copy of Slave Girl [Camoflague] was created by Eudial who was a genius geneticist member of the Witches 5 and she knows a thing or two
[22:31] * Captain Jack Harkness [Pugatorio] does
[22:32] *** Bayonetta can observe that the VIP area is enjoying a lavish banquet and performance of singing and dancing girls with many musicans.
[22:32] * Exact Copy of Slave Girl [Camoflague] goes into a dark alleyway and analyses this DNA. Can she adapt her scanners to detect its presence
[22:32] <spiritflame> Mali Guard rolls 1d20 Sakura.... if you get too low, though..... [ 17 ]
[22:32] <Exact Copy of Slave Girl> [Camoflague] <<Can you see what's int he present from purgatorio Bayuonetta>>
[22:32] *** roll, Kill Bot
[22:32] <spiritflame> Exact Copy of Slave Girl rolls 1d20 [ 4 ]
[22:33] <TomorrowIsMine> [Purgatiro] <<Which present?>>
[22:33] * Exact Copy of Slave Girl [Camoflague] Immediately hits DELETE
[22:33] *** and it IS capable of affecting you, it seems.
[22:33] *** Roll again.... roll again.
[22:33] *** Don't gt below a 3.
[22:33] <Exact Copy of Slave Girl> [Camoflague] << all of them! S[BLEEP]T THE DNA IS A VIRUS>>
[22:34] <spiritflame> Exact Copy of Slave Girl rolls 1d20 [ 19 ]
[22:34] *** Sakura April is unharmed by the DNA code designed to disable sentient machines.
[22:34] *** You are able to dump the data safely.
[22:34] * TomorrowIsMine [Purgatiro] scans the presents with her eyes. She can't exacty open em without arrousing susspison so..
[22:34] * Exact Copy of Slave Girl [Camoflague] has tech capable of killing time Lords and it's based 1000 years ahead so... but yes whew
[22:35] *** Oh, but the presents are not covered!
[22:35] <Exact Copy of Slave Girl> [Camoflague] <<jack do NOT dump that data into a computer - quarantine that sumb[BLEEP]ch >>
[22:35] <Exact Copy of Slave Girl> [Camoflague] << see if there's any presents that look odd for the time period Bayo >>
[22:35] * Presents include jewels, silver, pots, a----LOT of cookware for some reason, garments, exotic breads and meats, shells... and.... something unusual... it actually looks like a gun.
[22:36] <TomorrowIsMine> [Purgatiro] <<There's a GUN>>
[22:36] * TomorrowIsMine [Purgatiro] looks to see if anyone is looking at this gift
[22:36] <Exact Copy of Slave Girl> [Camoflague] << BINGO Is it a gun appropriate for the time period? >>
[22:36] <Nana Asahina (Local)> What is that strange thing on the table?
[22:37] <Exact Copy of Slave Girl> [Camoflague] [[ A Mass in a meatbag that doubles as a computer virus... this isn't a f[BLEEP]king lich's work unless it's one frm the future >>
[22:37] * Presents are HEAVILY guarded by dozens of soldiers. At least this table is. Presumably there are other tables, though... but gifts to the mighty Emperor are CONTINUALLY guarded.
[22:37] <Exact Copy of Slave Girl> [Camoflague] <<Technorganic >>
[22:37] * TomorrowIsMine [Purgatiro] knows they're guarded but is anyone LOOKING at it, IE would someone notice if she took it.
[22:38] *** Bear in mind what might happen to a guard where something really valuable was stolen on their watch.
[22:38] *** Roll 2d6
[22:38] * Exact Copy of Slave Girl is now known as Humble Trader
[22:38] <spiritflame> Presents rolls 2d6 [ 3, 4 ]
[22:38] * Humble Trader sits in the shade still in camo
[22:38] * Presents are currently being watched by no less than 7 people.
[22:39] <spiritflame> TomorrowIsMine rolls 2d6 [ 2, 6 ]
[22:39] * Humble Trader thinks
[22:39] *** You are in luck, when another important looking Imir comes up to this camp area, the guards stop looking at the table for one second.
[22:39] <Humble Trader> (What the F[BLEEP]K is the objective here.. )
[22:40] <Humble Trader> (Technoviruses.. )
[22:40] *** Bayonetta, you can probably see that Thrash and his kiddo are on the other side of this fence, a few dozen yards away fron you.
[22:40] <Humble Trader> (What's the end result of the growth look like... )
[22:40] <TomorrowIsMine> [Purgatiro] <<There's way too many people here, I can't take it without it being noticed as vanishing. Someone get in here and distract them.>>
[22:40] * Humble Trader can arrange that.
[22:41] * Humble Trader pulls out a gun and aims far away in the sky, and loads a blank, firing it toi create the sound of a huge THUNDERCLAP
[22:41] * Humble Trader then quickly collects the shall and changes position
[22:42] * Humble Trader hopoes that gboom distracts them
[22:42] *** An elephant hears this sudden noise and rears up trumpeting. People turn to look at it and many handlers rush over to calm the animal down before REALLY bad things happen.
[22:42] * TomorrowIsMine [Purgatiro] , if, and ONLY If and when, the guards look away, snatchs the gun and pulls it though a tiny purple glyph into purgatrio
[22:42] * Several of the guards make ready to evacuate people in the way of the elephant, and since nobody is obviously in the area, they turn their backs on the table.
[22:43] *** You can successfully do this if you roll ANY NUMBER but a 1 on a 1d50
[22:43] *** go.
[22:43] <spiritflame> TomorrowIsMine rolls 1d50 [ 5 ]
[22:43] * Several of the guards look close, but don't see you.
[22:44] *** You have this.... gun device with you in Purgatorio, Bayonetta.
[22:44] <Humble Trader> << Did you get it? >>
[22:45] <TomorrowIsMine> [Purgatiro] <<Got it>>

[23:04] <Humble Trader> (There were two sources. Apu's house and the slave girls. )
[23:04] <Thrash 7> <<well considering this is obviously future or rather alien technology...perhaps these women were exposed to a power source or meterial of some source which gives off an unusual form of radation>>
[23:04] *** From Puragatorio, you can see that envoys of the African procession are talking to the slave trader now.

[23:09] * Captain Jack Harkness bets she'll come up clean
[23:09] *** You find that on the border of the VIP section in this area, there is a table, Magistra and B, that contains nothing but weapons. Much like an armory or shopping trip, there are spears, polearms, knives, and all the weapons of this peariod, as well as pieces of armor. Chain, brigandine, plate... and exactly one bit of jet black armor, that doesn't emit light at all, and fits snugly around the wearer's torso. It's of a material you have never seen before.
[23:10] * Formerly Veiled Woman has no tumors, no abnormal growths, no nothing.
[23:10] *** IN HER HEAD.

[23:15] * Formerly Veiled Woman lifts up her face so you can get her nose, like you did to the other woman.

[23:16] * Captain Jack Harkness does the same thign with the coin and the sintering beam.

[23:22] * Captain Jack Harkness shows a hologram from the VM-- lif e size

[23:24] <Captain Jack Harkness> <<They freaked out when I showed them a hologram of a cyberman >>
[23:24] <Captain Jack Harkness> <<scan for Cyber technology >>
[23:25] <Nana Asahina (Local)> <<what?>>
[23:25] * The mass of tissue inside the slave starts changing now.
[23:25] * Madama Butterfly sticks her head through the portal to inform Jack of the heartbeat change. She then pulls back in, giving him a wink as she does.
[23:25] * Humble Trader scans there area for cyber tech
[23:26] * Captain Jack Harkness winks back an fgives her his numbner
[23:26] *** There is NO available cyberman technology in the area... unless....

[23:30] <Humble Trader> <<Well cybermen use scanners. So what are they scanning for
[23:30] <Humble Trader> >>
[23:30] <Formerly veiled woman> Heh... I bet.. that you think... that it would take a Miracle to defeat you, don't you?
[23:30] <Captain Jack Harkness> Defeat us?
[23:30] <Captain Jack Harkness> Who are you fighting?
[23:31] <Formerly veiled woman> I'm not the fighter.
[23:31] <Bulbul, the sick slave> I'm not the fighter.
[23:31] <Captain Jack Harkness> Just who do you think we are?
[23:31] <Bulbul, the sick slave> Lucky.
[23:31] * Captain Jack Harkness relays that NOT AT ALL OMINOUS STATEMENT TO THE OTHERS
[23:31] <Bulbul, the sick slave> So very very lucky.... and unaware of it.
[23:32] <Captain Jack Harkness> Because we were spared?

[23:36] * Formerly Veiled Woman stares resolutely ahead.
[23:37] <Captain Jack Harkness> We've never needed that level of technology you're dealing with to stay ahead of them.
[23:37] <Formerly Veiled Woman> I took an oath. I will say nothing.
[23:38] <Captain Jack Harkness> We're not cyber-agents.
[23:38] <Sick Slave-woman> It doesn't matter if you are. We will be freed someday.

[23:41] <Formerly Veiled Woman> I need not do that. She will find us....
[23:42] <Sick Slave> If you let us go.... you'd be smart.
