welcome to #suburbansenshi4
[21:54] *** Whenever Mr. Rosso recovers from the recent abductions and wakes up, he'd find himself sitting in some sort of chair, in the dark, alone... Alone as far as he would know.
[21:55] <A.G. Rosso> nnngh
[21:55] <A.G. Rosso> ...What is this...
[21:55] *** Should he make an attempt to struggle, he'd very quickly find himself bound by the arms and legs, to the chair.
[21:56] * A.G. Rosso does make the attempt, and does find this. He settles.
[21:56] <A.G. Rosso> What's the meaning of this.
[21:57] *** There would be the sound of shuffling within his proximity, and soon after, the hushed whispers of several.
[21:58] <~> Psst, he's coming to.
[21:58] <A.G. Rosso> I can hear you.
[21:59] <~> No s[BLEEP]t, we're sitting in the room right here with you...
[21:59] <A.G. Rosso> I meant, your whispering is pointless.
[22:02] <~> Queit is nice.
[22:02] <~> You might learn what is it like to be quiet real soon.
[22:07] <~~~> You don't know that yet.
[22:07] <~> Shh... I'll get the others...
[22:08] *** There's a sound of a door opening, some shuffling, then a door closing, accompanied with a harsh metallic grinding sound.
[22:14] * A.G. Rosso waits.
[22:53] *** moments later, that same sound is heard once again, signify that perhaps someone higher up on the chain of command has arrived.
[23:25] * A.G. Rosso sighs.
[01:37] * A.G. Rosso is away: ooc: too much going on elsewhere
[03:10] * ~ is away: SAME!
[23:21] * Freya looks at Prince Obsidian.
[23:21] *** Prince Obsidian is A cruel but handsome looking man with long raven hair, intense gray eyes and the mark of the Black Moon Clan on his forehead; dressed in black and gold armor with heavy mantle cape.

[22:44] <A.G. Rosso> http://cdn.business2community.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/01/road-warrior.png
[22:44] * A.G. Rosso sighs
[22:46] <~> (( omfg, why the road warriors!? Dx ))
[22:46] <A.G. Rosso> (( paste error lol ))
[22:49] *** The door wretches shut, making a noise that echoes off the walls of this silent room. Footsteps could be heard. This room really makes even light sounds seem deafening. Nonetheless, a new voice is heard.
[22:49] <???> - It is good you are awake. We have much to do. -
[22:50] <A.G. Rosso> ...
[22:50] <A.G. Rosso> And who are you.
[22:53] <???> - A new face. You don't know me, but I know you, Augustus Rosso. -
[22:54] <A.G. Rosso> Or at least my name.
[22:55] <???> - Yes, your name, and little more. I plan to change that. -
[22:56] <A.G. Rosso> I see.
[22:56] <A.G. Rosso> Or rather I don't.
[22:57] <A.G. Rosso> What do you want with me.
[22:59] <???> - I want to know your purpose. -
[23:00] <A.G. Rosso> That is simple. I want to protect my homeworld from the predations of the outside universe.
[23:01] <???> - In the same way as those of the HOTEL? -
[23:02] <A.G. Rosso> In what way do you think they see k to protect?
[23:05] <???> - In the same way a child seeks to protect their favorite toy. -
[23:06] <???> - So eager to snatch it away from others, despite the possibility of breaking it. -
[23:09] <???> - No questions asked. -
[23:09] <A.G. Rosso> Mmm. II'm not sure I understand the simile. I choose ot protect by creating the ultimate weapon of defense.
[23:13] <???> - And when will you use this weapon? -
[23:19] <A.G. Rosso> When Nede is attacked.
[23:20] <???> (( Nede? ))
[23:20] <A.G. Rosso> (( his home world ))
[23:20] <A.G. Rosso> Not that the probability is high, but still.
[23:20] <A.G. Rosso> I prepare.
[23:23] <???> - What about the terrorists native to Nede? What will be done about them? Or when the threat does not announce itself? -
[23:23] <A.G. Rosso> There are no terrorists native to Nede.
[23:23] <A.G. Rosso> My daughter slew them all.
[23:23] <A.G. Rosso> The others are far too peace-loving.
[23:26] <A.G. Rosso> But then their technology level is high enough they can afford to be.
[23:26] <???> - And you think there won't be more to take their place? -
[23:27] <A.G. Rosso> No.
[23:27] <A.G. Rosso> For you see, I was their leader.
[23:27] * A.G. Rosso feels his neck.
[23:28] <???> - Really now? Do go on. -
[23:28] *** Rosso is still bound.
[23:28] <A.G. Rosso> Well I had to get the resources to make my weapon somehow.
[23:28] * A.G. Rosso think about his neck then
[23:31] <???> - I see. Why did you take with the Blachaus? -
[23:33] <A.G. Rosso> They allowed me to gaina ccess to the last items I needed to complete the process.
[23:34] <???> - for what price? -
[23:34] <A.G. Rosso> They wanted her to protect them as well.
[23:35] <A.G. Rosso> That was completely acceptable.
[23:37] <???> - What if you could expand this weapon to all who seek peace? -
[23:43] <A.G. Rosso> I have no interest in others.
[23:51] <???> - And if you could destroy the threat by the source, rather than wait for it to show? -
[23:51] <A.G. Rosso> Illogical. No threat has arisen.
[23:52] <A.G. Rosso> I mearly make pre-emptive preparations.
[23:52] <A.G. Rosso> ^merely
[23:55] <???> - You sure come from an interesting place if no threat has arisen. Have you ever considered yourself? -
[23:56] <A.G. Rosso> I am a product of external influences.
[23:56] <A.G. Rosso> Of a long-dead history.
[00:00] <???> - Are you sure your weapon could defeat a threat, whenever it arises? -
[00:00] <???> - Where was it when you were taken? -
[00:11] <A.G. Rosso> Getting ice cream.
[00:12] <A.G. Rosso> Your questions are all reading.
[00:12] <A.G. Rosso> ^leading.
[00:12] <A.G. Rosso> You wish to "sell" me something.
[00:15] <???> - That depends. I am tempted to show you the faults in your weapon, myself. -
[00:16] <???> - Your usefullness has yet to be known to me. -
[00:16] * A.G. Rosso smiles darkly
[00:16] <A.G. Rosso> I welcome the demonstration.
[00:16] * ??? sees this, despite the darkness.
[00:17] <???> - As you wish. -
[00:18] <???> - Possibly, I will be impressed, but if I am not... -
[00:18] <A.G. Rosso> Yes?
[00:20] <???> - You very well may be useless to me. For your sake, let's hope that's not true. -
[00:20] <A.G. Rosso> If you think threatening me with death is going to intimidate me...
[00:20] <A.G. Rosso> Then you are no better than the criminal scum of the Tokyo underworld.
[00:21] <???> - I can assure you, there are fates worse than death. -
[00:21] <A.G. Rosso> You are speaking to a man who was killed by his own daughter.
[00:21] <A.G. Rosso> Heh.
[00:21] <A.G. Rosso> Yes, I know.
[00:21] * A.G. Rosso starts to laugh, and it is a low, throaty laugh.
[00:22] <???> - Are we masochistic? -
[00:22] <A.G. Rosso> Pain?
[00:22] <A.G. Rosso> What a mundane concept.
[00:23] <A.G. Rosso> Useful on the weak-minded.
[00:25] <A.G. Rosso> Death... was useful to me.
[00:25] <A.G. Rosso> Very, very useful.
[00:25] * ??? remains silent and listens until he finishes.
[00:25] <A.G. Rosso> Curious? You'll find out.
[00:26] <A.G. Rosso> Soon enough.
[23:07] * The spell envelops your bodies, and there is a jolt as though a hook is behind your navel---but then you are back in the Lobby. The spell has failed.

[20:22] * Orion Felinus sighs. "Oh you girls..."

[20:24] <Freya> they love you so much
[20:24] <Freya> this was my homeworld, Keiko
[20:25] <Keiko> it was?
[20:25] * Freya points to a star in the sky "see that star there?"
[20:26] * Keiko looks up and nods "yes"
[20:26] <Freya> that's the sun
[20:26] * Kanri-chan walks over and taps Orion on the shoulder
[20:26] <Keiko> its so small!

[20:27] <Orion Felinus> Oh, of course.
[20:28] * Kanri-chan smiles and clears her throat "um...its about kisuske"
[20:28] <Orion Felinus> Oh yes. Your "Not" boyfriend?
[20:28] <Freya> we are very far away, keiko......
[20:28] <Freya> beyond 134340
[20:29] * Keiko looks out and blinks "wow... but we just walked through a door"
[20:29] <Kanri-chan> well....about that
[20:29] <Kanri-chan> he invited me to dinner and invited Keiko too
[20:30] <Orion Felinus> Well, that's very gentlemanly of him.

[20:33] <Freya> myself, Matsumi, Hideki, Masaki and Saki were the survivors
[20:34] <Orion Felinus> It is your decision, Kanri, dear. What do you wish to do?
[20:34] * Keiko frowns "all of them died???"
[20:35] <Kanri-chan> i want to go. he also wanted me to ask when yuh were better if he could talk to yuh. yuhve been sick
[20:36] <Freya> yes...
[20:37] <Orion Felinus> Oh, well, I am better now. You can let him know he can come by to talk to me any time now.
[20:38] * Kanri-chan nods and hugs Orion "im glad yuhr better
[20:38] <Keiko> thats horrible!
[20:38] * Keiko sniffles getting emotional
[20:39] <Orion Felinus> So am I. You and your sister helped take care of me.
[20:39] * Orion Felinus hugs Kanri.
[20:40] <Orion Felinus> If you want to go out to dinner with Kisuke, then go. Do as your heart wishes.
[20:40] <Kanri-chan> dont forget keiko. she learned to make some really good soup^^
[20:40] * Kanri-chan blushes a bit and nods "ok dad."
[20:41] * Freya smiles "..but someday...the planet will be restored"
[20:42] <Keiko> it will?? and people will come back and it'll be a happy place?
[20:44] <Freya> very happy
[20:45] <Orion Felinus> And we can come home here as well.
[20:45] * Keiko wipes her eyes and smiles "i hope soon"
[20:47] <Freya> you have such a big heart
[20:47] <Orion Felinus> It will be like a fairytale ending. To return here, where we first met, and call this world home and have our family together.
[20:48] * Keiko sniffles and smiles up at freya "how did yuh and um....g-grandfather meet?
[20:49] <Freya> oh well.....
[20:49] <Freya> *cough*
[20:49] <Orion Felinus> I was visiting Quinox with the Empress of Saturn. We were attending a diplomatic assembly at the time.
[20:49] * Keiko blinks
[20:50] <Keiko> empress?
[20:50] <Orion Felinus> After the Assembly, the Queen of Quinox and the empress were good friends and decided to walk about the palace grounds and talk.
[20:50] <Orion Felinus> Yes, dear, Saturn was a grand empire.
[20:51] <Keiko> wow
[20:52] <Orion Felinus> As we walked the grounds, we came out to the royal gardens.
[20:53] * Keiko leans forward wide eyed
[20:54] <Keiko> O.O
[20:55] <Orion Felinus> It was about this time that...Freya emerged and invited the Queen and Empress to the temple for a ceremoney.
[20:56] <Orion Felinus> I remember the Queen's introduction of her...Freya de Albra Tura. It was like music to my ears.
[20:57] <Daini Felinus> oooooooo~
[20:57] <Keiko> ooooooooo~
[20:57] * Freya smiles, blushing
[20:58] * Kanri-chan giggles watching
[21:00] <Orion Felinus> I was permitted to introduce myself as the Grand Vizier of the royal court of Saturn.
[21:00] <Freya> I was younger then mind you...
[21:01] <Orion Felinus> Well, so was I. ^_^
[21:01] <Keiko> yuhr not THAT old
[21:01] <Orion Felinus> I was under her spell the moment I alid eyes on her.
[21:01] <Orion Felinus> ^laid
[21:02] <Orion Felinus> Well...technically....we are over a thousand years old.
[21:02] <Freya> technically
[21:02] <Keiko> WOAH YUHR DINOSAURS!!
[21:03] * Keiko searches Freya's face for wrinkles "you dont even have a single wrinkle!!" 0.0
[21:03] <Orion Felinus> ^^;
[21:04] <Orion Felinus> Well...I was a dinosaur in love. Smitten from the first glance. And I won the heart of my beloved. I've waited for over a thousand years to come back here, and marry my beloved.
[21:05] * Keiko giggles
[21:06] * Freya blinks
[21:06] <Freya> and we did :)
[21:07] <Keiko> and then yuh adopted and stuff?
[21:07] <Orion Felinus> After all the trials, and tribulations we endured, fate conspired to bring us together.
[21:09] * Daini Felinus and Keiko cheer
[21:10] * Freya giggles at that
[21:11] * Orion Felinus kisses Freya lovingly.
[21:11] <Daini Felinus> true love triumphs!!
[21:11] * Daini Felinus and Keiko giggle "ewwwwwwwwwwww~"
[21:11] * Kanri-chan just laughs on the ground
[21:11] * Freya kisses back
[21:13] <Orion Felinus> It is because we share the love of a true family, that we are happy together. Love is not bound by blood.
[21:16] <Keiko> thats what grandmother said! :D
[21:16] <Kanri-chan> yuh didnt stutter!! yay!!!

[21:22] <Orion Felinus> A Wind storm. We must go.
[21:22] * Freya stands carefully
[21:23] * Freya is actually smiling
[21:23] * Orion Felinus takes Freya's hand to help her.
[21:23] <Orion Felinus> Girls, hold hands, and stay close.

[10:59] <Astlyr> It's been a day already....
[11:00] <Thirza> Boss did say he was getting the stuff out from the Hades Vault--- I'd be surprised if it took less than five minutes.
[11:00] * Thirza takes a drag from her cig, then looks out the window.
[11:01] <Thirza> Zotia knows how to pick 'em--- only been two months and that kid's already able to match Thorndyke.
[11:03] <Astlyr> Speaking of Zotia, is it just my imagination going to work, or did she seem unusually concerned when he said he was going to Hades?
[11:05] <Thirza> Eh, she probably just wants to scronk him--- can't fault her, honestly.
[11:06] * Astlyr goes to say something, but then gives Thirza a "what the hell" look, her eyes actually opening.
[11:07] <Astlyr> I---wha--- huh?
[11:07] <Thirza> You really mean to tell me you didn't notice? You, of all demons?
[11:08] <Thirza> You could see the signs from at least six universes away.
[11:08] <Thirza> Though she'd best move quickly, if that's the case.
[11:08] <Astlyr> .....uh, what?
[11:10] <Thirza> Basically, Zotia's not the only one trying to get his attention--- both of those characters he met and hired from that other world, the BeastMaster and the Scientist--- these ears of mine did catch those two plotting something. Hell, even that hot little Kunoichi's been stealing glances.
[11:11] * Astlyr looks genuinely surprised to hear this.
[11:14] <Thirza> And from something Lady Haru told me about, seems the Esclancian Princess was working with her to try and set the boss up on a date.
[11:15] <Astlyr> .....surprising.
[11:16] <Astlyr> And he doesn't have a clue?
[11:16] <Thirza> Totally over his head.
[11:16] <Thirza> Y'know--
[11:17] * Thirza mimes something zooming right over her head, with a whistle sound for added effect.
[11:18] *** A Dimensional Gate opens nearby.
[11:18] <Thirza> He's back.
[11:19] * Nelius Raoul walks through the gate, hauling something over his back.
[11:19] <Nelius Raoul> Hope I didn't keep you all waiting.
[11:19] <Thirza> Nah, it's all cool~
[11:19] <Astlyr> How did it go?
[11:20] <Nelius Raoul> Getting there and unlocking the vault was easy---- problem was that every bottom-feeder looking for a free ticket to power decided to show up.
[11:21] <Nelius Raoul> Blew those little ba[BLEEP]rds right back to Hell.
[11:21] <Thirza> As one does in the Netherworld.
[11:21] *** The gate closes behind Nelius.
[11:23] * Nelius Raoul sets down a large container. "Anyway, this is what I wanted locked up."
[11:23] * Nelius Raoul opens the container.
[11:24] *** Inside the container are a multitude of weapons and armor, forged with Carnage power and imbued with Rasetsu.
[11:25] * Thirza gives a low whistle of approval. "You've been busy♫"
[11:26] <Nelius Raoul> Indeed.
[11:28] <Astlyr> This must've taken a great deal to acquire and strengthen.
[11:29] <Nelius Raoul> If you know what you're doing, then it's actually pretty easy.
[11:31] <Nelius Raoul> But now comes the next part of all this.
[11:35] <Nelius Raoul> Did Mita and Naoto get the info I was looking for?
[11:35] <Thirza> Oh, did they~
[11:35] <Thirza> They're both in the lab.
[11:35] <Nelius Raoul> Got it. Thanks.
[11:36] * Nelius Raoul heads for the lab. Thirza waits until he is far out of earshot to continue her conversation with Astlyr.
[11:37] *** Mita's Lab is located within a further section of the Netherworld Castle. It looks akin to a typical mad scientist's lab, but with much different technology lining the walls.
[11:38] *** Speaking of the NetherScientist in question, she was at one of her own computers. A green-colored Gynoid Unit was hooked up to said computer.
[11:38] <Nelius Raoul> Mita, Naoto--- I heard you two got the surveillance.
[11:39] <Mita> Oh hells yes we did. Take a nice look for yourself.
[11:39] * Mita angles the screen to let Nelius see.
[11:40] <Nelius Raoul> ....tsk, tsk. They ought to have known better than to do that.
[11:47] <Nelius Raoul> If they're that determined to see this through, then we'll let the consequences speak for themselves.
[11:47] *** The Gynoid, production model Delta-3361AF, codenamed "Naoto", looks up.
[11:48] <Naoto> Compilation complete.
[11:50] <Mita> Excellent.
[11:51] <Mita> Now to assign the new units their orders...
[11:51] <Naoto> Understood.
[11:53] <Mita> Oh hey, before I forget---
[11:53] * Mita tosses Nelius a small drive. "Got something on there that might interest 'ya."
[11:53] <Nelius Raoul> I see.
[11:54] * Nelius Raoul slots the drive into his comms and accesses the information.
[11:55] <Nelius Raoul> --well, this is interesting.
[11:55] <Nelius Raoul> So we can take the fight to them, if need be.
[11:56] <Mita> Yep.
[11:57] <Nelius Raoul> I'll keep this in mind, incase any more of them decide to show up.
[11:57] * Nelius Raoul then gets a message on his comms. He closes the info and answers.
[11:58] * Nelius Raoul sends a response back.
[12:00] <Nelius Raoul> ....well, this I wasn't expecting.
[12:01] <Mita> What's the haps?
[12:01] <Nelius Raoul> Someone from my old home Netherworld just contacted me---- seems they still haven't found an Overlord to replace Sirea.
[12:02] <Mita> That was... what, just a little time after you got us back to the Netherworld?
[12:02] <Nelius Raoul> Roughly 5 to 6 months back, yes.
[12:04] <Mita> So what's the plan--- just let 'em rot?
[12:06] <Nelius Raoul> ....starting to think otherwise, actually. The whole reason things went to s[BLEEP]t was due to the Overlord. With her long dead and there being massive in-fighting over whom gets to take her place, this could be a prime opportunity for some new recruits, and an extra world.
[12:07] * Mita has her head turned towards the screen, but has a demon's grin come across her face as she hears this.
[12:08] <Mita> Well then...
[12:08] <Mita> Sounds too good to pass up.
[12:09] <Nelius Raoul> Indeed it does. I'm gonna go check this opportunity.
[12:09] * Nelius Raoul heads through a gate.
[12:10] <Mita> (Hmhmhm, seems I've found a veeeeery close second.)
[12:10] *** Mita has left #suburbansenshi4 (C'mon Naoto, we got work to do~)
[12:10] <@spiritflame> Current Location is: Sirea's Netherworld
[12:11] *** With the death of Overlord Sirea, the Netherworld has gone to hell in a handbasket. Even within the broken remains of the Overlord's Castle, those whom held loyalty to Sirea have walled themselves in.
[12:12] * Nelius Raoul steps back into this Netherworld, entering around the Dimensional Port. He takes notice of the scant few ships still here.
[12:15] <Nelius Raoul> (Guess that when she died, those whom hated her grabbed what they could and bolted. Can't say I blame 'em.)
[12:16] * Nelius Raoul forms his wings and takes to the sky, headed for the remains of the Overlord's Castle.
[12:21] *** As Nelius approaches the castle, he can see the rampant fighting going on.
[12:22] *** On the castle's remains, he can see the loyalists firing back with everything they can to repel the other demons.
[12:26] <Nelius Raoul> (Giving as good as they get... wonder who's in charge.)
[12:28] * Nelius Raoul observes this battle.
[12:41] *** As the battle progresses, the leaders of the respective factions appear. Leading the loyalists is a pair of Warriors, Male and Female. The other faction is lead by a Mage Knight and a Soldier.
[12:47] * Nelius Raoul gets another message on his comms.
[12:48] <Message> ♦ You are the only one whom I can ask to do this--- please give this Netherworld its stability once again.
[12:50] <Message> ♦ It pains me to see this, and be incapable of taking action in my state. I witnessed your strength first-hand on that day---- I know it's not my place to ask this, but please, demonstrate it once more.
[12:56] <Nelius Raoul> (Who in the world...)
[12:59] <Nelius Raoul> (I'll find out whom this is my own way. For now, I'll take these two groups out.)
[13:01] * Nelius Raoul puts his comms away, and lands nearby. Right hand out, he summons a Deicide Axe as he approaches.
[13:02] *** A few of the demons on both ends of the battlefield notice the new arrival.
[13:02] <Loyalist> Oi, who the hell are you?
[13:03] <New Factionist> You with Sirea's old group, or with us?
[13:03] <Nelius Raoul> I am here on my own.
[13:06] * Loyalist goes to say something, but then gets a look at Nelius. "--those eyes... wait, that face!!"
[13:06] <Loyalist> !! He's the one that killed the Overlord!!
[13:07] *** All of the loyalists immediately turn their attention to Nelius, chattering amongst themselves.
[13:09] <New Factionist> ...wait, really?
[13:09] <New Factionist> Does that make him ok in our books?
[13:10] *** As the new factionists regroup to discuss this, Nelius begins fighting the loyalists.
[13:13] <New Factionist> So what's the verdict?
[13:14] <New Factionist> Sure, he killed Sirea, but we don't know why he's here.
[13:14] <New Factionist> We need to know more.
[13:15] * Nelius Raoul tears through the loyalists with surprising ease.
[13:20] <Nelius Raoul> The name is Nelius Raoul, and starting today.... you may call me "Overlord".
[13:20] *** The Loyalists and New Factionists look shocked to hear this.
[13:23] <Loyalist> You! You dare to take over this Netherworld that Sirea inherited!
[13:24] <Nelius Raoul> Wake the hell up, you lapdogs! Are you all gonna ignore what she had done in recent times, how she ran this place into the dirt?
[13:27] <Nelius Raoul> If you even want to so much as keep this Netherworld alive, then assist me in rebuilding it from the ground up.
[13:29] <Nelius Raoul> This world will need supplies, food---- I saw what happened to the Midnight Town. The vendors and usual services are long gone. Sooner or later, this Netherworld's gonna have nothing left. Then what will you do?
[13:32] *** The loyalists retreat a bit, realizing his words. They look to one another, discussing something amongst themselves.
[13:33] <Loyalist> ....very well.
[13:34] <New Factionist> So what'll happen now?
[13:36] <Nelius Raoul> As of this moment, this Netherworld is now counted alongside my own in the Coalition. I'll be connecting the gateways to my Netherworld shortly, so construction and resupplying can begin.
[13:40] <Loyalist> Understood. All we can ask is for you to be an Overlord worth following.
[13:40] <New Factionist> Guess this means our campaign is over...
[13:40] <Nelius Raoul> How so?
[13:41] <New Factionist> We were fighting to make certain a Sirea 2.0 didn't take the throne. If you're taking the reigns, we're kinda superfluous.
[13:42] <Nelius Raoul> I wouldn't quite say that. I'll be in need of informants, those whom can read between the lines of the people's words.
[13:45] <Nelius Raoul> Overlords do more than just wage war against other Overlords, after all--- we are rulers first and foremost.
[13:46] *** The New Factionists nod.
[13:48] * Nelius Raoul turns to the remaining loyalists. "As for you all, we've got a number of things to discuss. While all this in-fighting has been going on, this Netherworld has missed a number of events."
[13:52] <Loyalist> Understood.
[13:52] *** Loyalist has left #suburbansenshi4 (Our leaders, Maverick and Sonia, will accompany you.)
[13:52] *** New Factionist has left #suburbansenshi4 (As will our leaders, Tim and Yui.)
[13:54] * Nelius Raoul opens a gate back to his main Netherworld, inviting the four to accompany him back.
[13:54] <@spiritflame> Current Location is: Coalition Netherworld
[13:55] *** As Nelius stepped through the gate, bringing the other four with him, discussions started up almost immediately.
[13:58] *** The discussions-- and playing catch-up with recent Netherworld News-- would go on for a little while.
[14:02] *** Eventually the four demons would receive their orders--- Maverick and Sonia would lead two teams in digging out what was left of Sirea's possessions--- items of use would be distributed, and items best left elsewhere would be sold to RosenQueen. Tim and Yui would spread the news of a new Overlord taking charge to repair the Netherworld, and gague the reactions and opinions of the populace at large.
[14:03] <Zotia> Master, can they be trusted?
[14:04] <Nelius Raoul> That's what this reparation effort is about. Take a good notice of whom I sent with them.
[14:05] * Zotia takes a look at the demons and angels accompanying both groups. Her eyes soon discern a certain pair.
[14:05] <Zotia> ...ah, Shizuka's apprentices.
[14:06] <Nelius Raoul> Not just that-- they've also got special comms linked to both Haru and Delta's visors.
[14:06] <Nelius Raoul> We'll soon get a picture on if they're true to their words.
[14:08] *** From a distance away, a spirit watches the efforts go on.
[14:10] <Spirit> ♦ That Netherworld is in good hands now, with that influence removed. I duly thank you, Nelius Raoul---- and I sincerely apologize.
[14:17] *** The spirit fades out, its purpose complete.
[14:18] * Nelius Raoul gets up and heads back over to his container of weaponry and armor.
[14:18] <Nelius Raoul> (Whether it's those Black Moon idiots or something else, I don't know, but I'm getting that feeling again....)
[14:22] * Nelius Raoul can feel something resonating with his left eye.
[14:23] * Nelius Raoul sorts through the weapons, adding a few to his loadout.
[14:24] <Nelius Raoul> (While I'm at it...)
[14:25] * Nelius Raoul pulls his comms out again and sends a message to Zotia's apprentice, letting her know about the existence of the stronger gear if she needs it.
[14:30] * Nelius Raoul then carefully puts the container away, under a new lock and key.
[14:32] <Nelius Raoul> (Well, that's everything. They'll contact me if something else is gonna go down.)
[14:33] <Nelius Raoul> (Time to get a feel for the situation.)
[14:34] * Nelius Raoul checks his comms once more, getting info from Hale, Raphael, and the rest of the group.
[14:34] <Nelius Raoul> (Appears the Netherworlds are currently stable.... though we shouldn't delay too much in restoring reality.)
[14:35] * Nelius Raoul closes the comms and gates on out, still feeling that sensation in his eye.
[14:35] *** Nelius Raoul [Shura.CreativeChaos@Rasetsu.Coalition.nw] has left #suburbansenshi4 (Something is about to go down, I just know it.)

[14:33] *** Kanri-chan has joined #suburbansenshi4
[14:33] <@spiritflame> konnichiwa kanri-chan
[14:33] *** As everyone exits the gate, they find themselves not in a house, but in a massive castle!
[14:34] <Keiko> woooooooooooooooow~
[14:34] <Kanri-chan> where's the suit of armor?
[14:35] * Nelius Raoul just chuckles at Kanri's question. "Demon-world castles are way different compared to human-world ones."
[14:35] * Kanri-chan grins and looks around
[14:36] *** The castle is quite expansive. Right now, you're all in what would be the audience hall.
[14:36] <Keiko> >>
[14:36] <Keiko> <<
[14:36] <Keiko> ECHO~
[14:36] <Haru E> ....hey Kanri, you may want to brace yourself.
[14:37] <Kanri-chan> brace for what?
[14:37] *** The sound of something, or someone, moving at a high pace can be heard headed towards them.
[14:37] <Haru E> That.
[14:37] * Kanri-chan jumps on Nelius
[14:37] *** Out of nowhere Farris appears!
[14:38] <Farris> I know she's here---- that adorable little ball of fluff has arrived!
[14:38] <Haru E> Reign it in there, Farris.
[14:38] * Kanri-chan screams and runs "DONT YUH TOUCH MY TAIL LADY!!"
[14:38] * Keiko blinks
[14:38] <Farris> >:3 I see you, Kanri!!
[14:38] * Farris gives chase!
[14:39] <Kanri-chan> ♦ NIIIIIIIIIIIIKUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUN~
[14:39] * Nelius Raoul just facepalms. "And here I was hoping Farris was off-world."
[14:40] <Farris> ♦ Those fluffy ears will be mine to pet and scratch!!
[14:41] <Haru E> Keiko, that was Farris--- she's a Beast Tamer-class demon. In short, she works with monster-class demons and does her own research on them.
[14:41] <Kanri-chan> BACK OFF PSYCHO!!
[14:41] * Keiko pales "what is she gunna do to my mom???"
[14:42] <Haru E> However, she seems to suffer from a level of cuteness proximity--- at worst, she'll treat Kanri like how Kanri treats me.
[14:42] <Nelius Raoul> Basically like a large teddy bear.
[14:43] <Farris> I just wanna pet those ears~
[14:43] * Kanri-chan throws a pot at Farris "no yuh crazy woman! "
[14:43] <Keiko> soooooooooo we're not gunna help?
[14:44] * Farris is whacked by the pot and goes down.
[14:44] <Farris> @_@
[14:44] <Haru E> Kanri has it covered.
[14:44] * Haru E points over. Farris took a pot to the face and is down for the count.
[14:45] *** Some Prinnies walk over, picking Farris up and carting her off to the infirmary.
[14:46] * Kanri-chan runs over and climbs Nelius "she tried to rape me!!!!!!><"
[14:47] <Nelius Raoul> Kanri, she wouldn't go that far..... though she does need to learn some restraint.
[14:47] * Keiko blinks "is this a normal occurance?"
[14:47] <Haru E> Welcome to the Netherworld, Keiko.
[14:48] <Nelius Raoul> Anyway, shall we continue the tour?
[14:48] * Kanri-chan nods
[14:48] <Keiko> s-sure?
[14:49] * Nelius Raoul leads them onward into the other areas of the castle.
[14:50] * Keiko follows looking around curiously
[14:50] * Kanri-chan stays on Nelius for protection "this place is huge!"
[14:50] *** One of the first areas Nelius stops by is the Castle Infirmary. Stationed here is a Lady Healer.
[14:51] *** The Infirmary looks similiar to what one would find in most human-world hospitals, but there are some thick tomes nearby. The Lady Healer notices the group.
[14:52] * Keiko blinks and looks at the lady "wow
[14:52] <Lady Healer> Greetings, everyone. Welcome back, Master Raoul, Lady Haru. And whom might these two be?
[14:53] * Keiko ducks behind Haru shyly
[14:53] <Kanri-chan> Im Kanri and the one hiding is my daughter Keiko
[14:53] <Kanri-chan> nice to meet yuh^^
[14:53] <Lady Healer> Likewise.
[14:54] <Lady Healer> I'm Astlyr.
[14:54] * Lady Healer is now known as Astlyr
[14:54] <Kanri-chan> nice to meet yuh Astlyr^^
[14:55] <Kanri-chan> so is my brother a benevolent ruler? :D
[14:55] <Astlyr> You caught on quick. Master Raoul has been a wonderful Overlord.
[14:56] <Kanri-chan> oooooo whats an overlord?
[14:56] <Astlyr> The title of Overlord generally refers to a demon of sufficient power whom owns at least one Netherworld.
[14:57] <Kanri-chan> ...........wait
[14:57] <Astlyr> Though there have been Overlords without Netherworlds.
[14:57] <Kanri-chan> owns?
[14:57] <Nelius Raoul> Surprised, sis?
[14:57] <Nelius Raoul> It was back around November that I began work on constructing this Netherworld.
[14:57] <Kanri-chan> nope.. its just like yuh to own a world
[14:58] <Haru E> Uhh, how so, Kanri?
[14:58] <Kanri-chan> that explains why yuh live here
[14:59] <Kanri-chan> its just in his natural personality.. he's a leader.. a very bossy one sometimes.. it only fits that he'd lead a world
[14:59] <Astlyr> He is commanding, but he'd never ask someone to do something he wouldn't do.
[15:00] <Kanri-chan> thats alot of stuff.. he'd do alot. fighting great wyrms.. eating skin melting chicken wings. singing lullabys
[15:01] * Keiko giggles watching
[15:01] <Astlyr> Well, unlike most human depictions of rulers, he doesn't simply sit back and watch us do the work---- he is out there with us.
[15:02] <Kanri-chan> i couldnt imagine him sitting still. he's way too energetic
[15:03] <Nelius Raoul> Being an Overlord isn't all about battles though--- there's also negotiating with other Overlords and ensuring those working for me are properly compensated for their work.
[15:05] <Kanri-chan> so like what Yumi does.
[15:05] <Haru E> Pretty much.
[15:05] <Haru E> Except that dad doesn't skip out to the point they send helicopters after him~
[15:06] <Kanri-chan> har har. those were secret missions~
[15:06] <Voice> Hey, hoping I'm not interrupting anything.
[15:07] <Keiko> ???
[15:07] * Kanri-chan looks towards the voice
[15:07] <Voice> - http://s1375.photobucket.com/user/DSRaoul/media/D5-NineTails_zpsf68d4a84.jpg.html">
[15:07] *** Son of a--- that wasn't supposed to happen.
[15:08] * Voice is now known as Thirza
[15:08] <Kanri-chan> (( what did yuh do??? ))
[15:08] *** The coding got fouled up.
[15:09] * Thirza is a Netherworld fox-demon. She takes a drag off of her pipe.
[15:09] <Thirza> So boss, who're these two?
[15:09] <Keiko> thats alot of fluff O_O
[15:10] <Thirza> looks like this.
[15:11] <Nelius Raoul> The one with the cat-ears is Kanri. The young one with her is her daughter, Keiko.
[15:11] * Kanri-chan steps behind Nelius cautiosly
[15:11] <Thirza> Aha. Well, name's Thirza, I work for your bro here.
[15:12] <Kanri-chan> nice to meet yuh
[15:13] <Thirza> Hey, no need to hide behind the boss, I don't bite~
[15:14] <Kanri-chan> thats what Farris said
[15:14] <Kanri-chan> >>
[15:14] <Thirza> Well, unlike her, I don't go jumping on everything I'd consider cute.
[15:15] <Kanri-chan> im not cute >>
[15:15] <Thirza> Hell, when she tried pouncing on me I gave her a good smack with my tails, after I hardened the hairs to the consistency of metal.
[15:16] * Keiko tries to poke Thirza's tails
[15:17] * Thirza 's tail does feel soft, but there's an underlying strength to it.
[15:18] * Keiko blinks and tries to pet the tails
[15:18] * Kanri-chan watches this
[15:19] * Thirza lets Kanri get a feel for her tails.
[15:19] <Thirza> Say, I've been hearing 'bout some place called Gensokyo--- 'parrently there's a fox-chick there who's well-known.
[15:20] <Kanri-chan> ran?
[15:20] <Haru E> Yeah, Ran Yakumo.
[15:21] * Keiko is petting the tails.. kanri is fine hiding
[15:21] <Thirza> Ah, so that's her name. One of these days I gotta have a chat with 'er.
[15:22] <Kanri-chan> make sure yuhr in a chipper mood
[15:22] <Kanri-chan> ran tends to be playful
[15:23] <Thirza> So I've heard.
[15:23] <Thirza> ...weird, Thorndyke shoulda been back by now.
[15:25] <Astlyr> What was he up to?
[15:25] <Thirza> Said he was taking our human-world liasion home after her training sessions.
[15:27] <Thirza> ....say, Astlyr, wasn't it you that got him that compass set?
[15:27] * Kanri-chan sniffs the air and follows her nose
[15:28] <Astlyr> ....I thought that was you. Or maybe it was Sif when she popped over.
[15:29] * Haru E notices Kanri headed off elsewhere. She follows.
[15:30] * Kanri-chan follows her nose all the way to the closest kitchen
[15:30] *** The kitchen is gigantic!
[15:31] <Kanri-chan> O_________O
[15:31] *** It's filled with many a new utensil, cleaned plates and silverware---- the place could serve up food for entire armies.
[15:31] * Kanri-chan zips around squealing and looking at every crevice!!
[15:33] <Kanri-chan> look at that! oooooooo so shiny~ ITS SO BIG!!!! :D
[15:34] <Voice> Impressive stuff, isn't it?
[15:35] * Voice is now known as Mita
[15:35] *** The Netherscientist enters the kitchen, helping herself to some food.
[15:36] <Mita> Been a while, huh Kanri?
[15:36] <Kanri-chan> oh yes!
[15:36] <Kanri-chan> i love kitchens. i love cooking heh
[15:37] <Mita> So I've heard. What do you think of this place?
[15:38] <Kanri-chan> well ive only seen the audience hall and the ifirmary other than here, but honestly? its too big for me.. perfect for my brother though
[15:38] <Kanri-chan> infirmary^
[15:38] <Kanri-chan> i'd get lost way too easy here
[15:39] <Mita> Well, in that case, you should steer clear of my lab--- it's got its own wing, and things tend to go boom on a regular basis.
[15:40] <Kanri-chan> sounds like my kitchen hahaha
[15:41] * Mita just laughs.
[15:42] <Kanri-chan> so yuhr an alchemist?
[15:43] <Mita> Scientist, actually. The old arts of alchemy kinda passed on into obscurity a while ago.
[15:44] <Mita> Back on the old human world of Veldime, there was a city there where everyone practiced alchemy.
[15:45] <Mita> However, as time went on and morals loosened up, their experiments turned decidedly nasty, and now the place is a ghost town.
[15:46] <Kanri-chan> wow.. thats horrible
[15:48] <Mita> Indeed.
[15:49] <Mita> It was said that the few remaining people tried constructing a tower to meet God--- but when they were done, it wasn't high enough, and there were too many steps, so the place was abandoned.
[15:49] <Kanri-chan> did they....die in there?
[15:50] <Mita> Die where?
[15:50] <Kanri-chan> in the tower
[15:51] <Mita> If they did, then nothing was recorded on such.
[15:52] <Mita> Anyway, the place is inhabited by Old Man Geo--- he got his name for his geo puzzles.
[15:54] <Kanri-chan> geo puzzles?
[15:54] <Kanri-chan> whats that?
[15:54] * Kanri-chan flicks her ears fully curiously now
[15:54] <Mita> Lemme show you real quick.
[15:55] * Mita leads Kanri down another hall and out into an expansive courtyard.
[15:55] * Kanri-chan follows touching the wall s every so often
[15:57] *** The courtyard out behind the castle expands off for a good half a mile. There are small crystals shaped like pyramids here and there.
[15:59] <Mita> See those crystals over there?
[15:59] <Kanri-chan> yea?
[16:01] <Mita> Those are Geo Symbols. Now take a look over there.
[16:01] *** Near the crystals are some glowing spots in the ground.
[16:02] <Mita> Those are Geo Panels.
[16:02] <Mita> When a symbol is placed on a panel, all panels of that color get that symbol's effect.
[16:03] * Kanri-chan frwons "what do they do?"
[16:04] <Mita> Depends on the symbol. Some can raise or lower Attack and Defense, heal you over time, even make you outright Invincible.
[16:05] <Kanri-chan> wow
[16:05] <Kanri-chan> so what? yuh just stand on one?
[16:06] <Mita> Not on the Symbol, but on the panel that the symbol is on. If you want to stand on the object itself, you'd need a Geo Block.
[16:06] <Kanri-chan> hmmm interesting....gotta remember never to bring my sister here... she might break them
[16:07] <Mita> Well, sometimes shattering a symbol is a viable tactic if you don't want your enemy benefitting from an effect.
[16:08] <Mita> Watch this.
[16:08] * Mita has a Red Symbol placed on some Green Panels, then shatters the symbol. The panels immediately turn red!
[16:09] <Kanri-chan> oooooooooooooooooooooo
[16:09] <Kanri-chan> is niikun gunna be mad?
[16:09] <Kanri-chan> if so i had nothing to do with this
[16:10] <Mita> This is a tactic of using Geo Panels, Kanri.
[16:11] <Mita> When a symbol of one color is destroyed on a panel of a different color, the panels change to the color of the symbol.
[16:12] <Kanri-chan> hmmmm
[16:12] <Kanri-chan> soo pretty much now there's two of one effect?
[16:13] <Mita> With the symbol gone, the panels have no effects.
[16:13] <Kanri-chan> ohh
[16:13] <Kanri-chan> can they be fixed?
[16:13] <Mita> However, if you can get multiple colored symbols onto a single panel.....
[16:15] * Mita shows another setup---- red, green, blue, yellow, purple and aqua symbols on a field of yellow panels. She detonates the red one, and in sequence, the panels change color as the symbols immediately burst------ red, to green, to blue, to yellow, to purple, then to aqua.
[16:15] <Kanri-chan> wow
[16:16] <Kanri-chan> thats so pretty
[16:16] <Kanri-chan> do it again! :D
[16:17] <Mita> There are two other things to remember about this.
[16:17] * Mita loads a third setup--- two symbols, red and blue, on purple panels. She cracks the red symbol, but the panels stay the same.
[16:18] <Kanri-chan> 0.0
[16:18] <Mita> This Blue Symbol has "No Color Change" as its property. Until it's removed, the panels will never change color.
[16:19] <Mita> And here's the finale~
[16:20] * Mita loads up the six symbols from before, but this time there's a symbol that looks clear. All seven are on purple panels.
[16:21] *** As the Red Symbol is cracked, the panels begin changing through the colors of the other symbols--- red, green, blue, yellow, purple, aqua----- but as the clear symbol is destroyed, the panels begin to disappear!
[16:22] *** The panels disappear, and there's a spectacularly flashy burst of energy!!
[16:23] <Mita> That, dear Kanri, is a Geo Clear.
[16:24] * Kanri-chan oo's and blinks "was that bad?"
[16:24] <Mita> Not at all.
[16:24] <Kanri-chan> so now none of them are usable?
[16:24] <Mita> Doing this lets you wipe out the Geo Panels if they've been giving you a hard time. Enemies standing on the changing panels will also take damage.
[16:26] <Mita> There's a lot more to the art of using Geo Panels and Symbols, but that explaination is best served from a Geomancer or Onmyo Mystic.
[16:26] <Kanri-chan> oh.
[16:26] <Kanri-chan> so...there's fights here?
[16:28] <Mita> Not in this courtyard specifically---- the actual battles are usually out in the field.
[16:30] <Kanri-chan> on the feild?
[16:30] <Kanri-chan> there's lots of battles there?
[16:31] <Mita> Mostly training exercises. If we can, we try to keep the actual battles away from the castle.
[16:33] * Kanri-chan frowns a bit "does....does niikun fight alot?"
[16:34] <Mita> It's what he does as the Overlord. He's on the battlefield alongside us.
[16:34] <Kanri-chan> i know its dumb...but i worry about him sometimes.......well all the time. i know he's strong and capable... but i still worry
[16:34] <Mita> Shows you care.
[16:35] * Kanri-chan shrugs "more like i dont want to lose him"
[16:35] <Kanri-chan> he's the one person who listens when i talk. never interjects either.. he just listens. and he always remembers
[16:36] <Mita> I see.
[16:36] <Kanri-chan> i never know how to repay him.
[16:40] <Kanri-chan> soooooooo is there a pool?
[16:41] * Mita blinks. "That was an abrupt change in topic."
[16:41] <Kanri-chan> ive been trying to get him to get a pool >>
[16:44] * Mita just blinks again.
[16:44] <Kanri-chan> what? is that bad?
[16:45] <Mita> No, it's just that I've only met a small handful of neko-jin that actively take to the water.
[16:46] <Kanri-chan> well im special :3
[16:46] <Kanri-chan> my sister is the same way.. i can never get her out of the beth tub
[16:46] * Mita laughs. "Had a feeling you and I would get along."
[16:47] <Kanri-chan> bath^
[16:47] * Kanri-chan perks up "so there's a pool?"
[16:48] <Mita> No, unfortunately.
[16:48] <Mita> However!
[16:49] <Kanri-chan> hm?
[16:49] <Mita> There is a pond a short ways away from the castle--- there used to be an infestation of Warslugs fouling things up, but after relocating them, the place has cleaned up nicely.
[16:50] <Kanri-chan> ooooooooooo
[16:50] <Kanri-chan> that sounds nice!now if only i had brought my bathing suit
[16:52] <Mita> Perhaps we should find Nelius and Haru---- you did leave Keiko with them, and somehow I doubt she's fully up to speed on what the Netherworld is like.
[16:52] <Kanri-chan> good idea!
[16:52] * Mita leads Kanri back into the castle. She takes out a small comms and looks something up.
[16:53] <Mita> Well, this is something---- they're visiting Naoto at my lab.
[16:53] * Kanri-chan follows "naoto?"
[16:54] <Mita> The name for Delta-3361AF, a Gynoid Unit. She picked it out herself.
[16:55] <Kanri-chan> well lets go meet them! :D
[16:56] * Mita leads Kanri down to her lab, on the far side of the castle.
[16:57] * Kanri-chan follows looking around intrigued
[16:57] *** Mita's lab has all the amenities of what one would expect a lab to have--- some chemicals on one wall, a master computer in the corner, other electronics haphazardly strewn about on a table.
[16:58] *** Nelius is here, with Keiko, but there is a suspicious lack of a Haru.
[16:58] * Kanri-chan chuckles (looks like Keiko's room.. just hers has books)
[16:58] * Kanri-chan goes over and hugs her daughter "dear brother where is yuhr daughter?
[17:00] <Nelius Raoul> You mean Haru? She sent me a message, saying she was going to greet Regal. She'll be back in a bit.
[17:01] <Kanri-chan> ahhh... so ive yet to see yuhr sea serpent mote, stallion stables, and library
[17:02] <Nelius Raoul> ......has anyone told you about your highly active imagination?
[17:02] <Kanri-chan> yuh have~
[17:02] <Kanri-chan> ive been told its a wonderfully beautiful thing^^
[17:03] * Keiko giggles and looks around
[17:03] <Kanri-chan> besides. yuh cant have a castle without a mote. thats against the rules
[17:04] <Nelius Raoul> There have been plenty of castles that lack moats.
[17:04] <Kanri-chan> and most of then fall
[17:04] <Nelius Raoul> I mean, Laharl's Castle is situated over a volcano.
[17:05] <Nelius Raoul> And no, most castles without moats don't fall.
[17:05] <Kanri-chan> yuhr not over a volcano so that point is mute
[17:06] *** Over in a corner near the computer, a Gynoid looks up at the discussion.
[17:06] * Keiko looks at the Gynid and goes over to it "ooooooo~"
[17:07] <Delta-3361AF> ♦ Moats were only in use around castles due to the populace lacking the ability to swim.
[17:08] * Kanri-chan blinks and looks at the Gynoid "is that so? wel if one adds sea serpents it should be more effecient right?"
[17:09] <Delta-3361AF> ♦ WIthin the Netherworld, the populace can swim, fly and tunnel beneath the earth, so in all three cases, a moat would only be a mere obsticale, even with Serpent Demons added in.
[17:09] * Keiko goes to poke the Gynoid curiously
[17:09] <Kanri-chan> fine.. then i wont get a sea serpent garden... darn
[17:10] * Delta-3361AF would feel either soft like a human, or hard as metal depending on where she is poked.
[17:10] <Delta-3361AF> ♦ Not all battles are waged purely on the ground. Knowing your terrain and whom to send are key elements.
[17:11] <Keiko> cool!
[17:11] <Kanri-chan> niikun take notes. she's smart!
[17:12] <Delta-3361AF> ♦ Any and all information pertaining to warfare, I have already shared with the Overlord. Another key part of war is the spread of information, and we regularly exchange info.
[17:13] <Kanri-chan> really?? is he always so charming?
[17:13] <Delta-3361AF> ♦ Define "Charming".
[17:14] * Kanri-chan blinks "well..hmm"
[17:15] <Keiko> (of a person or manner) polite, friendly, and likable.
[17:15] <Kanri-chan> what she said
[17:16] <Keiko> Chaming also refers to a person or thing as attractive to the sight
[17:18] <Delta-3361AF> ♦ Then the Overlord would fit such a definition. Though he has only been instated for roughly two months, he has already helped bring another Netherworld back from the brink of abandonment, making it livable once again.
[17:19] <Kanri-chan> he's just yuhr average everyday hero isnt he?
[17:20] <Delta-3361AF> ♦ He does not see himself as a hero.
[17:20] <Keiko> i like her. she's so smart
[17:20] <Kanri-chan> well at least to me he is.
[17:20] <Delta-3361AF> ♦ He merely does what he believes is correct to do.
[17:21] <Kanri-chan> i've heard that from "someone" before *looks at Nelius grinning*
[17:21] <Nelius Raoul> It's pretty much the truth.
[17:23] <Kanri-chan> of course niikun. yuhr nothing if not an honorable demon ne?
[17:23] <Keiko> hey what kind of subjects do you know?
[17:24] <Delta-3361AF> ♦ That would depend. What subject would you like to discuss?
[17:25] <Keiko> ♡ all of them~ ♡
[17:25] <Kanri-chan> just start with something she'll listen regardless....say.. economics
[17:25] * Delta-3361AF gives Keiko something of a stare, but due to the radar dish covering her eyes, you can't quite tell what expression she has.
[17:26] * Keiko squeaks and looks down "s-sorry"
[17:26] <Delta-3361AF> ♦ Very well. Let us begin with a short lesson about the Netherworld and its inhabitants.
[17:28] * Keiko gasps and beams nodding
[17:29] <Kanri-chan> she'll be there till the poor the gets bored of talking niikun
[17:29] <Kanri-chan> poor thing^
[17:29] * Delta-3361AF launches into a small discussion with Keiko about the Netherworld--- its inhabitants, how other Netherworlds come into existence, how some Overlords battle for dominance, and even old legends.
[17:29] <Nelius Raoul> Actually, I think this is good for Naoto. Aside from Haru, Mita, Tia and myself, she doesn't get a lot a visitors.
[17:30] <Kanri-chan> Keiko loves to learn.. its strange really. if yuh have a library, we'll never see her again.
[17:31] * Keiko listens with rapt attention taking in every single detail
[17:32] <Nelius Raoul> In that case, better make certain that if she meets Nazarus, we'll be there to pull her away from the books.
[17:34] * Haru E appears behind Kanri! "Heeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee~y"
[17:34] * Kanri-chan yelps and jumps up clinging to the ceiling
[17:34] <Kanri-chan> haru what the heck??? are yuh trying to kill me??????
[17:35] <Haru E> :D
[17:35] <Haru E> Sorry Auntie, but it was too good to resist~
[17:35] * Kanri-chan drops back down and holds her chest "im getting too old for this ><"
[17:36] <Haru E> Anyway, got someone for you two to meet.
[17:36] * Haru E stands aside, and in walks a young demon.
[17:37] <Regal> Greetings to you both. I am Regal, currently in service to Overlord Zetta.
[17:38] <Kanri-chan> so yuhr Haru boyfriend?
[17:38] <Kanri-chan> haru's^
[17:39] <Regal> Indeed. You must be Kanri, then.
[17:39] * Keiko is far to enraptured with the information she's learning, she waves a hand subconciously
[17:40] <Regal> And I would surmise the one talking to Naoto is your daughter, Keiko.
[17:40] <Kanri-chan> yes yuhd be correct on both. its nice to meet yuh.
[17:40] <Regal> Likewise.
[17:41] <Kanri-chan> (( is he shirtless too? ))
[17:43] <Regal> (( Yep. It's part of their beliefs. That robe around his legs is also barbed. ))
[17:44] <Kanri-chan> (( ahhh ))
[17:45] * Kanri-chan looks at nelius to say something as she has no clue
[17:45] <Nelius Raoul> Something up?
[17:48] * Kanri-chan facepalms "yuh are as dense now as yuh were when i met yuh"
[17:51] <Kanri-chan> sooo Regal.. how did yuh and Haru meet?
[17:52] * Nelius Raoul frowns at Kanri's comment.
[17:53] <Regal> It was as Nelius and Haru were visiting Zetta's Netherworld to do some trading. I was a new recruit then, so I was still learning the ropes, so to say.
[17:53] <Regal> Haru headed off to ensure that the items being traded for were in good condition, and I was on watch that day.
[17:53] * Kanri-chan nods listneing
[17:54] <Regal> We met, began trading stories, and next thing I know, it was about time for them to head out.
[17:54] <Regal> Our next meeting was as Zetta was taking several of us to the Land of Carnage--- imagine my surprise to hear that these two actively lived there.
[17:55] <Kanri-chan> i can imagine somewhat
[17:57] <Regal> That was when Nelius caught wind of my interest in his daughter, so we all had a discussion on things.
[17:57] <Kanri-chan> did he scare yuh?
[17:59] <Regal> Admittedly, at first, he did--- not just from how he was able to keep pace with Overlord Zetta, but how direct he was.
[18:00] <Kanri-chan> yea.. he's not very subtle is he?
[18:01] <Nelius Raoul> Considering both Zetta and I saw them necking with one another.....
[18:02] * Haru E gets an embarassed grin as she starts turning pink in the face.
[18:02] * Regal also has the decency to turn a bit pink himself.
[18:02] <Kanri-chan> necking?
[18:02] * Kanri-chan gets a specific motherly look "and what pray tell is necking dear haru?
[18:04] <Nelius Raoul> Oh, they were about two steps away from a full-blown makeout session.
[18:04] * Haru E and Regal start turning a lovely shade of red.
[18:04] <Haru E> >< OK, OK, enough embarassment!
[18:05] * Kanri-chan raises an eyebrow "oh? as yuhr aunt i cannot condone such behavior"
[18:05] <Haru E> Considering I'm three years older, and dad gave his permission....
[18:07] <Kanri-chan> ah yes but age has nothing to do with it... yuh still have yuhr moments of adorable cuteness
[18:08] <Regal> Quite the colorful bunch.
[18:08] <Kanri-chan> i cant tell if thats a compliment or an insult..
[18:09] <Regal> A compliment, I can assure you.
[18:10] <Regal> Haru tells me tales of what goes on in your world, of the people whom dwell there.
[18:11] <Kanri-chan> all kinds of crazy Regal....ALL kinds
[18:12] <Regal> So I can surmise.
[18:13] <Regal> It sounds rather close to this world Thirza spoke of.... Gensokyo, I believe it was called.
[18:13] <Kanri-chan> hey now.. im not one of the crazies
[18:14] * Haru E pops up behind Kanri and begins scratching behind her ears. "But we love ya anyways~"
[18:15] * Kanri-chan purrs and grabs haru into a headlock "yuhr just like yuhr dad."
[18:16] <Kanri-chan> perhaps we should move on? if Farris is awake i dont want her to come hunting me down again
[18:18] <Regal> You need not worry about that--- York pulled her away to give one of her apprentices an earful.
[18:19] <Haru E> Poor kid got the feed mixed up with the wash water--- those poor Mystic Beasts are gonna be belching bubbles for days.
[18:20] <Kanri-chan> ouch
[18:20] <Kanri-chan> poor things
[18:20] <Nelius Raoul> Well, if we're gonna continue the tour, better get Keiko away from Naoto.
[18:20] <Kanri-chan> wait.
[18:20] <Haru E> Give the beasts a few days, and they'll be fine.
[18:21] * Kanri-chan looks over at Keiko..."she'll be here when we're done.. this might just be her favorite spot"
[18:21] <Kanri-chan> where's Aldora niikun? i havent so much as smelled her yet
[18:22] <Nelius Raoul> Aldora should be---
[18:22] * Nelius Raoul doesn't get to finish his sentence as the sound of something tromping this way can be heard.
[18:22] <Nelius Raoul> On her way.
[18:22] *** Aldora skids to a stop outside the lab.
[18:23] <Kanri-chan> hi Aldora!!
[18:23] *** The large Esclancian Tiger brightens up as she sees Kanri, and steps in to say hello.
[18:23] * Kanri-chan runs over and hugs the not so small cub "i've missed yuh!"
[18:24] <Nelius Raoul> Incidentally, if we were gonna continue on up, we'd have run into Aldora eventually--- she's taken to the higher ramparts as a napping place.
[18:25] * Kanri-chan giggles "lets go see all of yuhr favorite spots yeah?"
[18:25] *** Aldora purrs like a heavy motor.
[18:25] <Kanri-chan> does she still bring yuh presents?
[18:27] <Nelius Raoul> You mean like Great Wyrms and the like?
[18:27] <Kanri-chan> yep
[18:27] <Nelius Raoul> Well, there was that infestation of Warslugs at the pond... she brought back about 4 of them before they learned to high-tail it away.
[18:29] * Kanri-chan laughs and pets the large tiger "she's a fierce tiger! arent yuh girl?"
[18:30] *** Aldora just looooooooves all this attention.
[18:30] <Kanri-chan> i miss her occupying half my bed.
[18:31] <Nelius Raoul> Well, if you come over another time, I'm certain Aldora will enjoy spending some more time with you.
[18:33] <Kanri-chan> we'll come back for sure! Aldora needs another feline friend to play with^^
[18:34] * Haru E just laughs.
[18:34] <Nelius Raoul> Anyway, ready to see more?
[18:35] * Kanri-chan hops up "yep! lets go Aldora!"
[18:37] * Nelius Raoul looks over. "Hey Keiko, wanna go see more of the castle?"
[18:38] * Keiko doesnt even hear Nelius "so what happened then??" O___O
[18:39] * Kanri-chan heads out and looks around
[18:40] * Nelius Raoul looks over to Mita. "If Keiko asks where we went, let her know we continued the tours around."
[18:40] * Mita nods as Nelius and everyone else heads out.
[18:40] * Delta-3361AF continues regaling Keiko with stories.
[18:41] * Nelius Raoul leads Kanri upstairs to the second floor of the castle.
[18:41] * Kanri-chan skips alongside Aldora talking with the feline happily
[18:43] *** The second floor of the castle has many living quarters installed for the active troops. Off to one end of the floor is the showers, seperated by gender and by species of demon.
[18:43] *** There are also some Prinnies on lookout.
[18:44] * Kanri-chan resists the urge to kick the prinnies "so where do yuh guys sleep?"
[18:44] <Nelius Raoul> Haru and myself each have a place on another floor.
[18:45] <Kanri-chan> what about Aldora?
[18:46] <Haru E> She tends to migrate around the castle---- though as said before, she tends to stick to the upper ramparts.
[18:47] <Kanri-chan> that way she can see everything!
[18:48] <Haru E> The extra height and being a bit closer to the sunlight is an extra plus as well.
[18:48] <Kanri-chan> true. she's a sunbather like me^^
[18:49] *** The third floor of the castle splits into two distinct paths. To the left leads towards the roof. To the right leads further inward.
[18:50] * Kanri-chan goes to the right!
[18:52] *** Here you find the rooms belonging to Nelius and Haru. Patrolling the hall is a familiar-looking purple-haired female demon in knight's armor, though her expression seems a bit different....
[18:53] * Kanri-chan blinks "who's that?"
[18:55] <Nelius Raoul> You remember Hilde?
[18:55] <Kanri-chan> oh yea!
[18:56] <Nelius Raoul> This is her sister, Valentia.
[18:56] <Kanri-chan> ohhhhhh
[18:58] <Kanri-chan> is she nice too?
[18:59] <Haru E> She's a bit more on the serious side compared to Hilde, but they both have a strong will to do what they do.
[19:01] * Nelius Raoul gets a message on his comms.
[19:01] <Nelius Raoul> Ah, he finally made it back.
[19:03] <Haru E> Thorndyke really needs to get a GPS installed in his armor.
[19:04] <Kanri-chan> who?
[19:05] <Haru E> He's a Dark Knight. Really good fighter, but he gets lost real easily.
[19:05] <Nelius Raoul> He lacks a real sense of direction outside of battle or the castle.
[19:06] <Kanri-chan> sounds like me
[19:09] <Nelius Raoul> I can imagine.
[19:09] <Kanri-chan> is he ok?
[19:09] * Kanri-chan heads down the other way since there's nothing to see here
[19:10] <Nelius Raoul> He'll be all right.
[19:11] *** The left path leads to the roof of the castle, where some other demons are on lookout.
[19:12] * Kanri-chan blinks "where is the library and the the other places? i know yuh have a library"
[19:13] <Nelius Raoul> The Library's down in the underground floors.
[19:14] <Nelius Raoul> Nazarus requested a lot of room, so we dug out a lot of room for his collection.
[19:14] <Kanri-chan> there's an underground?????
[19:15] <Nelius Raoul> Of course.
[19:16] * Kanri-chan runs back the way she came "lets go then!!"
[19:17] * Nelius Raoul leads Kanri back down to the first floor. He takes her past the lab and over to a staircase.
[19:18] *** The Castle Library seems to stretch on into infinity. Books upon books line the shelves, and there are some research computers over in the back.
[19:20] <Kanri-chan> first things first....can i read any of these?
[19:21] <Nelius Raoul> The stuff in the common language is over on those shelves.
[19:21] * Nelius Raoul points to a shelf.
[19:22] * Kanri-chan runs over and looks through the books "got any on potions?"
[19:23] <Nelius Raoul> Should be. Try around the middle of the shelf.
[19:25] * Kanri-chan checks and pulls out a book "can i borrow this?"
[19:26] <Nelius Raoul> I think you should browse through it first, to ensure it's the one you're after.
[19:27] * Kanri-chan looks at the title "i just need a beginners book. all the ones back home are fake"
[19:28] <Nelius Raoul> Very well.
[19:30] * Kanri-chan hands the book to Nelius "think this one will do?"
[19:31] * Nelius Raoul takes the book and flips it open. "Hmm..."
[19:32] * Kanri-chan waits looking hopful
[19:34] <Nelius Raoul> This one should be sufficient, but I must ask--- why the interest in potions?
[19:36] <Kanri-chan> well im not good at fighting.. spells are limited, but potions are similar to cooking. it takes precision an patience. if i cant fight alongside everyone.. i can at least equipp them with the abilities i can
[19:37] <Kanri-chan> besides.. its fun! making brews that an change the color of yuhr hair. or cure a blind man.. its riveting!
[19:38] <Nelius Raoul> Aha.
[19:38] <Kanri-chan> is it silly?
[19:38] <Nelius Raoul> Not at all.
[19:40] * Kanri-chan smiles "i just want to help. to show im not as weak as others see me"
[19:41] <Nelius Raoul> It's actually quite nice.
[19:41] <Kanri-chan> really?
[19:42] <Nelius Raoul> Truly.
[19:43] <Kanri-chan> why?
[19:44] * Kanri-chan flicks her ears stating her curiousity
[19:46] <Nelius Raoul> Many people have the capacity to help, but often lack the will. To see that you have both capacity and will to help is a nice sight.
[19:48] <Nelius Raoul> What say we get back to everyone?
[19:49] * Kanri-chan grins and nods "lets go save naoto from Keiko's ever inquiring mind"
[19:49] <Kanri-chan> oh i have a favor to ask when ever yuh have time
[19:50] <Nelius Raoul> What's up?
[19:50] * Nelius Raoul leads Kanri back towards the lab.
[19:50] <Kanri-chan> would yuh mind teaching keiko how to use a dagger? like yuh showed me?
[19:51] <Kanri-chan> she'll start school at some point if she runs into trouble on her way home i want her ready
[19:51] <Nelius Raoul> Self-defense stuff, I take it? Sure.
[19:51] <Kanri-chan> yep. self defense. i want her safe
[19:52] * Kanri-chan grins "so can i make dinner?
[19:52] *** Back at the lab, and Naoto is still chatting away with Keiko.
[19:52] <Nelius Raoul> If you like.
[19:52] <Kanri-chan> YES!! i promise not ro blow it up^^
[19:52] <Nelius Raoul> ...you plan on cooking here.
[19:53] <Kanri-chan> of course^^
[19:53] <Kanri-chan> i miss netherworld food
[19:54] <Nelius Raoul> Best be careful with that statement, else I'd think you'd be turning into a demon.
[19:54] <Kanri-chan> would that be a bad thing?
[19:55] <Nelius Raoul> Depends on the person in question. You, I could see able to settle in here comfortably.
[19:55] <Kanri-chan> probably.. its not so bad.
[19:56] <Keiko> WAIT WE'RE MOVING?????
[19:56] <Kanri-chan> O_____O
[19:56] <Nelius Raoul> No, Keiko, you're not moving.
[19:57] * Keiko pouts "darn"
[19:57] <Kanri-chan> wait what???
[19:58] <Nelius Raoul> ??
[19:58] <Keiko> i like it here. Miss Naoto is very wise.
[19:58] * Kanri-chan elbows Nelius "watch out she's gunna bribe yuh soon"
[19:59] <Kanri-chan> im gunna go make dinner yuh two have fun^^
[20:00] <Delta-3361AF> ♦ Miss Keiko, you have been a wonderful audience. I don't get too many visitors since my legs quit functioning.
[20:00] <Keiko> yuhr legs dont work??
[20:01] <Delta-3361AF> ♦ It was due to some parts malfunctioning and breaking during a mission. The new parts should be here soon.
[20:03] <Delta-3361AF> ♦ Mita and Tia have been putting their best efforts to keep me functional as we wait for the parts to arrive.
[20:03] <Keiko> im sorry. i wish i could help
[20:05] <Delta-3361AF> ♦ But you have. Getting someone new to talk with is a pleasant experience.
[20:06] <Keiko> i like talking to yuh. yuhr very knowledgable
[20:07] <Delta-3361AF> ♦ It's both my job and my hobby.
[20:07] <Keiko> its my hobby too!^^
[20:07] <Keiko> i love learning
[20:10] <Delta-3361AF> ♦ That is a pleasant thing to hear. Far too many take learning something for granted.
[20:12] <Keiko> well thats the only way to survive
[20:12] <Keiko> learn and adapt
[20:14] <Delta-3361AF> ♦ Indeed.
[20:16] <Keiko> ive tried to talk my mom into letting me make my room a library.
[20:17] <Delta-3361AF> ♦ And how did that go?
[20:19] <Keiko> she said if she let me she'd never find me again cause i'd get buried >>
[20:19] <Delta-3361AF> ♦ I'm certain there can be a compromise.
[20:20] <Keiko> she said we might be able to add a room.. but til then i could use the library downstairs
[20:21] <Delta-3361AF> ♦ I see.
[20:22] <Keiko> honestly any chance i have to learn..i take.
[20:23] <Keiko> mom says knowledge is power
[20:23] <Delta-3361AF> ♦ Indeed it can be.
[20:26] * Keiko grins "i hope one day i can teach others and spread knowledge^^
[20:27] <Delta-3361AF> ♦ Sounds like an admirable goal.
[20:27] * Delta-3361AF smiles.
[20:31] * Keiko bows her head shyly "thank yuh..that means alot"
[20:32] <Delta-3361AF> ♦ No worries.
[20:33] * Kanri-chan skips in "dinnertime my hoodlums~"
[20:36] <Nelius Raoul> Awesome. Hey Naoto, you want anything?
[20:37] <Delta-3361AF> ♦ Some food would be nice.
[20:37] <Keiko> yea! i'll bring something back^^
[20:37] <Kanri-chan> i made lots of sea serpent and vegies^^
[20:37] <Kanri-chan> i made some with great wyrm sauce too
[20:39] <Delta-3361AF> ♦ Sounds great.
[20:39] * Keiko grins and runs off to the kitchen!
[20:40] <Kanri-chan> i believe she sees yuh as a friend Naoto^^
[20:41] <Delta-3361AF> ♦ I see her as a friend as well.
[20:43] * Kanri-chan smiles "we'll get yuh some food ok? she'll likely want to eat with yuh^^"
[20:47] <Delta-3361AF> ♦ That sounds wonderful~
[20:47] * Kanri-chan heads off to grab Keiko and take her to the kitchen "come on niikun. yuh need to eat too"
[20:47] * Nelius Raoul heads with Kanri back to the kitchen. Haru and Regal are already there.
[20:49] * Kanri-chan serves up plates of food
[20:50] * Nelius Raoul and Haru get their food. Regal makes two plates--- one for himself, and one for Naoto.
[20:50] * Keiko eagerly grabs two plates "i'm going back now!"
[20:51] * Kanri-chan giggles watching Keiko run off "ive never seen her so excited to talk"
[20:51] <Nelius Raoul> Goes to show, a good friend can be found nearly anywhere.
[20:56] *** As they enjoy their food, someone new enters. She looks around, and makes her way over.
[20:56] * Female Demon looks like this.
[20:57] <Female Demon> Ah, Master Raoul, here you are.
[20:57] * Kanri-chan looks at this new demon
[20:57] * Haru E looks over. "Hey Zotia. What's the haps?"
[20:57] * Female Demon is now known as Zotia
[20:58] <Zotia> Currently things are quiet enough. Might I be permitted to join you?
[20:58] <Nelius Raoul> Go ahead, make a plate and pull up a seat.
[20:59] * Zotia does so. "My, this is good. My complements to the chef."
[21:00] <Kanri-chan> thank yuh
[21:00] * Kanri-chan nibbles on some food
[21:01] <Zotia> Ah, young Kanri. A pleasure to meet you at last.
[21:01] * Kanri-chan blinks "have we met?"
[21:02] <Zotia> Before now, we have not, but Lady Haru and Master Raoul have told me about you.
[21:03] <Kanri-chan> << have they now? i hope all good things
[21:06] * Zotia softly chuckles.
[21:07] * Kanri-chan blinks "what?? did i say something?"
[21:08] <Zotia> You are quite adorable.
[21:09] * Kanri-chan blushes "i am not!"
[21:09] * Kanri-chan promptly hides behind Nelius "tell her im not cute ><"
[21:10] * Zotia chuckles again.
[21:12] <Zotia> Oh my~
[21:13] <Kanri-chan> im not cute.. im 20 years old.. cute refers to my 6 year old sister. *pouts*
[21:15] <Zotia> Hmhmhm~
[21:17] <Kanri-chan> i dont like her. she's making fun of me :(
[21:19] <Zotia> I apologize, but truly, I see why Haru spoke so highly of you.
[21:20] * Kanri-chan glaaaaaaares at haru "what did yuh say?"
[21:20] <Haru E> Wow, much suspicion.
[21:21] <Haru E> I was telling her about your cooking.
[21:22] <Kanri-chan> of course im suspicious..everytime yuh tell someone about me they call me cute
[21:26] <Haru E> You make that sound like it's a bad thing.
[21:26] <Kanri-chan> im a mother >>
[21:27] <Kanri-chan> mother's dont get called cute
[21:27] <Haru E> You'd be surprised~
[21:27] <Kanri-chan> im mean its not like she's gunna say niikun adorable
[21:27] <Haru E> Of course--- he's a father~
[21:28] <Haru E> :D
[21:30] * Kanri-chan twitches and PUNCHES Nelius
[21:30] * Nelius Raoul is punched.
[21:30] <Kanri-chan> i blame yuh
[21:31] * Zotia chuckles as she watches this play out.
[21:33] * Kanri-chan hufs and stomps out
[21:33] <Zotia> I certainly see why you two formed such a bond.
[21:34] <Haru E> Yeah, she's a lotta fun to be around.
[21:35] * Kanri-chan stomps through the halls and grabs the first person she sees "where's the restrooms??"
[21:35] <Regal> Hmm...
[21:36] *** Unfortunately, Kanri just grabbed a Dark Knight
[21:37] * Dark Knight just looks down at Kanri, raising an eyebrow.
[21:38] * Kanri-chan stares back unfazed "a restroom? with a toilet??"
[21:38] * Dark Knight points to right behind Kanri.
[21:39] * Kanri-chan looks that way "back that way?"
[21:40] *** There is a ladies' restroom right behind Kanri.
[21:40] * Kanri-chan gasps and runs in!!
[21:40] <Dark Knight> (....such a strange neko-jin. The Overlord must have invited her.)
[21:41] * Dark Knight shrugs and heads off.
[21:41] *** Dark Knight has left #suburbansenshi4
[21:41] * Kanri-chan returns and runs off "now back to my original plans
[21:42] *** Back with everyone else, Zotia has retired to her room for the night. Nelius, Haru and Regal are getting caught up on matters.
[21:42] <Regal> So then, young Lady Petta opens her eyes, and out of nowhere she fires beams.
[21:43] <Haru E> Whoa, that young and she's already got the beams down?
[21:43] * Keiko returns to clean the dishes
[21:43] <Regal> Indeed. Zetta looked outright elated to see his daughter able to replicate his signature move.
[21:44] <Nelius Raoul> Though who wants to bet he'd never admit it?
[21:45] <Haru E> That's a bet already won--- Zetta's easily the most prideful demon in existence.
[21:45] <Regal> Say, where did Kanri head off to?
[21:46] * Haru E taps into the castle security to check.
[21:47] * Kanri-chan is wandering around the library looking for something
[21:47] <Haru E> She's back in the library.
[21:47] <Keiko> there's a library??? O_O
[21:48] <Nelius Raoul> She did mention wanting to take up potions to help provide extra effects for those of us whom go into battle.
[21:49] <Keiko> oh no!
[21:49] <Regal> It's downstairs, Keiko, though I will warn you, there are only so many translated books. Also, make certain to handle the books with care--- Nazarus is very protective of his books.
[21:49] <Keiko> she's gunna blow the kitchen up again
[21:49] <Keiko> oh um thank yuh....person
[21:51] <Regal> I am Regal.
[21:51] * Keiko bows respectfully "nice to meet you Regal"
[21:51] * Regal bows in return. "Likewise."
[21:53] <Keiko> do we have to go back soo Uncle Nelius?
[21:53] <Keiko> soon^
[21:53] <Regal> Well, let Kanri know I thank her for the meal, but it's almost time for me to return to Zetta's Netherworld. Until next we meet.
[21:53] * Regal gives a respectful bow, then heads for the Dimensional Gatekeeper.
[21:54] *** Regal has left #suburbansenshi4 ('Til next time, Haru.)
[21:54] <Nelius Raoul> Potentially. Let's go drag your mother out of the library, then stop by Naoto's one more time, OK?
[21:55] * Keiko pouts a bit "ok."
[21:56] <Nelius Raoul> No worries, you'll have many an opportunity to come visit again.
[21:57] * Nelius Raoul leads Keiko and Haru back to the Library.
[21:57] * Keiko nods following
[21:58] *** Back into the Library....
[21:58] * Kanri-chan looks at nelius and haru
[21:58] * Nelius Raoul looks around for Kanri.
[21:58] <Nelius Raoul> There you are--- find anything of interest?
[22:00] * Kanri-chan stuffs a piece of paper in her pocket "yep~"
[22:00] <Nelius Raoul> And what was that paper?
[22:01] <Kanri-chan> a recipe
[22:02] <Nelius Raoul> Aha.
[22:02] <Nelius Raoul> Well, it's already been....
[22:03] <Kanri-chan> all day yea i know. time to go home
[22:03] <Nelius Raoul> Before we go, I promised Keiko we'd stop by to see Naoto one last time.
[22:03] <Kanri-chan> alrighty. lets go
[22:03] * Keiko grins and skips to Naoto's
[22:04] * Nelius Raoul leads everyone up to the Lab.
[22:04] <Delta-3361AF> ♦ Hello. Kanri, your meal was wonderful.
[22:04] <Kanri-chan> why thank yuh Naoto! im glad yuh enjoyed^^
[22:05] <Keiko> we're leaving now but Uncle Nelius said i could come say goodbye
[22:05] <Delta-3361AF> ♦ Perhaps next time you are here, you can talk with Christophe, our usual chef.
[22:05] <Delta-3361AF> ♦ This is not goodbye, young Keiko. It is "Until next time".
[22:06] <Kanri-chan> that sounds fun! id love to learn more Netherworld recipes^^
[22:06] * Keiko grins and hugs Naoto "Until next time Naoto chan^^"
[22:06] * Delta-3361AF returns the hug. "Until next time, Keiko-chan."
[22:07] <Delta-3361AF> ♦ Hopefully by the next time you return, I will have the parts to have my legs restored.
[22:08] * Keiko beams happily "then we can go for a walk outside?"
[22:08] <Delta-3361AF> ♦ Of course~
[22:09] * Keiko fistpumps and bounces "that would be great!^^"
[22:09] * Delta-3361AF smiles.
[22:10] * Kanri-chan smiles "come along keiko its time to go now. perhaps if yuh ask extra nicely Uncle nelius will bring yuh back to learn more"
[22:11] * Nelius Raoul chuckles.
[22:11] * Keiko grins and heads out with Kanri waving to Naoto "until next time!"
[22:13] * Delta-3361AF waves farewell. "Until next time!"
[22:13] * Nelius Raoul leads everyone back to the Audience Hall.
[22:14] <Nelius Raoul> And back we go.
[22:14] * Nelius Raoul opens a gate back to the HOTEL.
[22:15] * Kanri-chan gives nelius a hug "thanks for having us"
[22:15] <Nelius Raoul> No prob.
[22:16] * Kanri-chan waves and heads through the gate
[22:16] * Keiko follows Kanri
[22:17] <Haru E> I'm gonna head back with 'em---- finish some things and get ready to help Kae some more.
[22:17] <Nelius Raoul> All right. Take care.
[22:17] *** Haru E [SpannerinDWorks@Coalition.nw] has left #suburbansenshi4
[22:17] *** Kanri-chan has left #suburbansenshi4
[22:17] *** Keiko has left #suburbansenshi4 (A new beginning isnt so bad)
[22:18] *** Nelius Raoul [Shura.CreativeChaos@Rasetsu.Coalition.nw] has left #suburbansenshi4 (Guess I'll get some rest.)
[22:18] <@spiritflame> Current Location is: Null
[22:17] <@spiritflame> Current Location is: Cafe Parisien, Downtown Tokyo RIGHT ACROSS the street from the Police station, and watched by multiple cameras
[22:17] *** Eliza McIntash has joined #suburbansenshi4
[22:17] <@spiritflame> konbanwa eliza mcintash
[22:17] * The lights are off inside...
[22:18] <Eliza McIntash> Huh.
[22:18] <Eliza McIntash> You would not think that was their way to do business.
[22:18] <Eliza McIntash> I know they are open.
[22:18] * A black cat follows Eliza wherever she goes.
[22:18] <Eliza McIntash> Poor guy. I guess I can't see him after all.
[22:19] * Eliza McIntash opens her backpack, and eats a chocolate bar. She goes over to the Police Station side of the street.
[22:19] * A pair of policeman walk up to Eliza...
[22:20] <Policeman 1> You're here to see the Inspector? Come with us...
[22:20] <Eliza McIntash> Heh.
[22:20] <Eliza McIntash> No, I'm not here to see him.
[22:20] <Eliza McIntash> I'm here to "SEE" him.
[22:20] <Eliza McIntash> Where is he?
[22:21] <Policeman 2> Follow us...
[22:21] * Eliza McIntash keeps her backpack open. It's full of chocolate, as well as an object wrapped in newspaper. "Want some chocolate, officer?"
[22:21] <Eliza McIntash> You know.
[22:21] <Eliza McIntash> Why didn't he meet me himself?
[22:21] <Eliza McIntash> I will need to tell my friends that the date has moved, heh. They'll worry and freak out about me if I don't. Worry-warts.
[22:22] * Eliza McIntash pull out her cell phone.
[22:22] * Eliza McIntash opens it up.
[22:22] <Eliza McIntash> You guys sure you don't want chocolate? It's good.
[22:22] * Eliza McIntash munches and pushes some buttons to send a text.
[22:22] * Eliza McIntash has sent a text.
[22:23] * The Policemen on both sides garb her arms and marches her over to the cafe...
[22:23] <Eliza McIntash> Hold it.
[22:23] <Eliza McIntash> Can I ask you two a question?
[22:23] * Eliza McIntash is laughing.
[22:23] * Eliza McIntash is laughing pretty hard, and it's hollow laughter.
[22:24] <Eliza McIntash> HA HA HA.
[22:24] <Eliza McIntash> Yes. Oh yes.
[22:24] <Eliza McIntash> Stupid.
[22:24] <Eliza McIntash> Sure. Yeah. Why not.
[22:24] <Eliza McIntash> I'll go in.
[22:24] <Eliza McIntash> By the way? What are your names?
[22:24] <Eliza McIntash> Come on. Think hard.
[22:24] <Eliza McIntash> REALLY HARD.
[22:24] <Eliza McIntash> Fakes.
[22:24] * Eliza McIntash stands in front of the restaurant door and brushes herself off.
[22:25] * The policemen have blank-eye stares.
[22:25] * Eliza McIntash carries her backpack with her, and reaches inside, but hesitates when she sees the lack of expression.
[22:25] <Eliza McIntash> .....
[22:25] <Eliza McIntash> Let me go. I'll talk to him.
[22:26] <Policemen 1 > Go inside...
[22:26] <Eliza McIntash> Alright.
[22:26] <Eliza McIntash> I will.
[22:26] * ThePaleElf shifts along in the shadows, following Eliza
[22:26] * Eliza McIntash picks something out of her backpack, holds it in her hands, and goes inside.
[22:27] <Eliza McIntash> never too much danger for a little chocolate.
[22:27] * Eliza McIntash nibbles the candy with one hand, and holds onto the wrapped object in the other.
[22:27] <Eliza McIntash> Well. I know you are inside.
[22:28] <Eliza McIntash> You might as well speak to me. I'm curious---genuinely curious what you have to say.
[22:28] * Several figures are waiting inside... Aoi Satan, Rubeus and a pale thin white-haired man reading a book.
[22:29] * And on one of the tables....
[22:29] <Eliza McIntash> Heh. You know what is interesting?
[22:30] <And on one of the > Is the body of the Inspector, throat slit and bleeding out all over....
[22:30] <Eliza McIntash> No.
[22:30] <Eliza McIntash> I knew it. I KNEW IT. I'm too late.
[22:31] <@spiritflame> ATTENTION: Aoi Satan is already registered. Check your password or enter a new name.
[22:31] * Noctis simply sits outside one of the doors, and looks in, flicking his tail.
[22:31] * Eliza McIntash looks genuinely sad. "I knew this would happen to him. That poor poor fool."
[22:31] * ThePaleElf remains in the shadows, waiting for the right moment
[22:32] < Aoi Satan > Welcome to my parlor, said the spider to the fly....
[22:32] <Eliza McIntash> I'm not a fly.
[22:32] <Eliza McIntash> I'm a soldier.
[22:32] <Eliza McIntash> I really really didn't want to be, but I suppose that does not matter now.
[22:33] <Eliza McIntash> You know. I knew one side of the other would ruin the life of this man, unless I was able to get him alone... warn him... explain to him...
[22:33] <Eliza McIntash> Heh... how silly. How silly for a person to believe I loved him so quickly, and want to meet.
[22:33] * ThePaleElf texts Eliza ◜The theater is waiting for my signal. The moment you want them to rush in let me know. Until then act like I'm not here.◞
[22:34] * Eliza McIntash blinks back tears. "I knew. I knew it was a trap---but it is too late."
[22:34] <Eliza McIntash> Why are you doing this? Do you even know who I am?
[22:35] <Eliza McIntash> Do you know WHY I am here?
[22:35] <Rubeus (1337-C)> Of course... You're close to them...
[22:35] <Eliza McIntash> Am I? I suppose that is at least partially the truth.
[22:36] <Rubeus (1337-C)> And by taking you....
[22:36] <Rubeus (1337-C)> We will hurt them.
[22:36] * Eliza McIntash snickers.
[22:36] * ThePaleElf aims an Arrow~
[22:36] <Eliza McIntash> It's funny.
[22:36] <Eliza McIntash> You didn't answer either question. Are you even capable of doing that?
[22:36] <Eliza McIntash> Do you even know why I am here, or who I am?
[22:37] * Eliza McIntash tosses a last bit of chocolate into her mouth, and grips the other object harder now.
[22:39] * The white-haired man looks up from his copy of Neuromancer at Eliza and then... out the window.
[22:39] * Noctis is in the windowsill
[22:40] <@spiritflame> ATTENTION: Aoi Satan is already registered. Check your password or enter a new name.
[22:41] < Aoi Satan > Something the matter, Mr. Makishima?
[22:41] * Eliza McIntash hears this name, and remembers it.
[22:41] * Eliza McIntash looks at Aoi Satan.
[22:41] *** Aoi Satan is A pale, evil looking man with long blue hair, dressed in blue samurai grab of old and with a horned serpent crown on his forehead.
image Song is: 0.
is Level 1.
[22:41] <Eliza McIntash> It's like I've seen you before...
[22:42] <The white-haired man> Nothing, just a cat...
[22:43] <The white-haired man> Though this woman.... intrigues me.
[22:44] <Noctis> [SPOILER] Ah, but I am NOT just a cat. I am like you. Empowered beyond reason or nature---feared and hated and invincible because of the sum of it all.
[22:44] <Eliza McIntash> YOU DID NOT have to KILL HIM!
[22:44] <Eliza McIntash> Why did you kill him?
[22:44] * Eliza McIntash 's heart beats fast.
[22:45] < Aoi Satan > Listen to that...
[22:46] < Aoi Satan > I do believe she's angry....
[22:46] <Eliza McIntash> DAMN RIGHT!
[22:46] <Eliza McIntash> You rotten.... you awful.... WHY? That's what I don't get. You could have just let him....
[22:47] <Eliza McIntash> It was clear I was coming. You didn't have to.... he would have...
[22:47] <Eliza McIntash> Been better off if it hadn't been for tonight.
[22:47] <Eliza McIntash> When.... when did you kill him?
[22:49] < Aoi Satan > Oh, a day ago... You should have heard his begging for his life....
[22:49] * Eliza McIntash tries to keep herself calm, but is failing. She is showing her teeth.
[22:49] * ThePaleElf presses against a wall, waiting
[22:50] <Eliza McIntash> You deserve this.
[22:51] <Eliza McIntash> You DESERVE what you are going to get... that is saying a LOT.
[22:51] <Eliza McIntash> Many people don't deserve it... the staggering majority do not.
[22:51] <Eliza McIntash> But why? WHY are you doing this? Why can't you just let it die?
[22:52] < Aoi Satan > Because of hatred...
[22:52] < Aoi Satan > Hatred for this city and it's people...
[22:53] <Eliza McIntash> THEN LEAVE US AND NEVER RETURN!
[22:53] * Eliza McIntash turns around, and tries to pull the door open.
[22:53] <Eliza McIntash> What on EARTH would a person have against an entire city?
[22:54] * The policemen are standing right in front of the door.
[22:55] * ThePaleElf moves close to Eilza, remaining in the shadows.
[22:55] <Rubeus (1337-C)> Don't bother try to escape....
[22:55] * Eliza McIntash waves her hand, and her eyes turn yellow. She unexpectedly presses with her will upon one of the "willful" policemen.
[22:55] <Rubeus (1337-C)> You're are our prisoner now....
[22:55] <Eliza McIntash> ♦ Open the door.
[22:56] * Eliza McIntash reaches down with one hand, and tears the newspapers from what she was holding. It is an O-Wakizashi---a sword.
[22:57] * One of the policemen reaches for the door...
[22:58] < Aoi Satan > I wouldn't do that if I were you...
[22:58] <Noctis> Do it.
[22:58] * The other policeman puts his gun to his partner's head.
[22:59] * Noctis is laughing, and his tail bats back and forth.
[22:59] < Aoi Satan > Care to have another death on you?
[22:59] <Noctis> DO IT.
[22:59] <Eliza McIntash> ...........
[23:00] < Aoi Satan > Your choice...
[23:00] < Aoi Satan > Surrender or I have these two....
[23:01] < Aoi Satan > Blow their brains out.
[23:01] * Eliza McIntash holds her sword in her hands.
[23:01] * Eliza McIntash 's eyes flash black.
[23:01] * Eliza McIntash looks at the dead man on the table.
[23:02] <Eliza McIntash> I would had dropped my weapon, except you have already proven yourself. You will have them do it anyway.
[23:02] <Eliza McIntash> ♦ NOW!
[23:02] * ThePaleElf texts Theater ◜Get in here NOW◞
[23:02] < Aoi Satan > !
[23:02] * a bullet BLASTS through the wall towards aoi satan..a spirit bullet
[23:02] < Aoi Satan > Wakiji!
[23:03] * ThePaleElf lets an arrow fly at Aoi Satan's head
[23:03] * Nelius Raoul appears from the shadows, a clawed hand aimed right for Rubeus' throat!!
[23:03] * Eliza McIntash 's eyes are yellow now, and they glow like molten gold.
[23:03] <Eliza McIntash> ♦ I will MAKE YOU PAY FOR YOUR CRIMES!
[23:04] <Eliza McIntash> ♦ MIFUNE RYO KEMPO--- Okami kiba sutoraiki!
[23:04] * Wakiji erupt from the ground inside the cafe. Two taking the hits meant for Aoi.
[23:05] * Red Selphier SLAMS a burning red ax at one of the Wakiji...making sure to avoid hurting anyone else
[23:06] * Eliza McIntash swings her blade at the neck of Rubeus, and--inexplicably, a phantom blade swings in ghostly arms in the exact opposite direction coming from the other side----Rubeus had better duck!
[23:07] * Eliza McIntash leaps all the way across the room shouting, swinging for his neck as though she has done it all her life.
[23:07] < Aoi Satan > Rubeus avoids getting his throat ripped by jumping away Nelius Raoul...
[23:07] <Noctis> Yes.... yes, it is about time. Long overdue.
[23:08] * Rubeus avoids getting his throat ripped by jumping away Nelius Raoul..
[23:09] * only to be cut in half by Eliza's attack.
[23:09] <Rubeus (1337-C)> I CAN'T DIE HEERRRRRRRRRRRRRRR-ACK!
[23:10] <Nelius Raoul> By the way, thanks for falling for the feint.
[23:10] * Rubeus (1337-C) is dead.
[23:10] * Noctis laughs uproariously, and it echoes throughout the whole city block.
[23:10] <Noctis> Perhaps now, little one, it would be wise to make use of your other gifts?
[23:10] <ThePaleElf> That cat is laughing.
[23:11] * Aoi Satan and the other man have vanished.
[23:11] <Nelius Raoul> I'll give you the skinny on the cat here in a bit.
[23:11] * Noctis is still laughing.
[23:12] <Nelius Raoul> Anyway, blue-balls Yamazaki and his other asskisser left.
[23:12] <Eliza McIntash> ♦ NEVER RETURN! NEVER RETURN!
[23:13] * There is a note on counter.
[23:13] * Nelius Raoul takes a look at the note.
[23:13] <Eliza McIntash> ♦ MIFUNE RYO KEMPO---Moretsuna Han'ei!
[23:13] <Red Selphier> ♦ you ok there, Eliza?
[23:14] <ThePaleElf> I think her warrior sprit.. or something.. worke up
[23:14] * It reads "to Eliza McIntash."
[23:14] * Eliza McIntash BLAZES forth with the spiritual power that she has been suppressing, and the room lights up so much it's difficult to gaze upon her without squinting!
[23:15] <Nelius Raoul> Hey, Eliza! You have a note over here!!
[23:15] * Eliza McIntash does not hear them, and is panting and looking around outside the door.
[23:15] <Noctis> is not there any more.
[23:15] * Noctis ^
[23:15] <Nelius Raoul> - ELIZA!! -
[23:17] * Noctis can be heard laughing in the alleyways and dark spaces of the restaurant now.
[23:17] * ??? puts their arms around Eliza!
[23:17] * Nelius Raoul picks the note up, ignoring the hairball as he heads over to Eliza. "OI!"
[23:18] * Eliza McIntash is, now that the light has faded, kneeling on the table which holds Inspector Takeshi Watabe's body, and she is crying.
[23:19] <???> Eliza....
[23:19] * ??? is now known as Matsumi Kaze
[23:19] <Matsumi Kaze> ..Eliza
[23:20] * Nelius Raoul softens his gaze, as he takes in how Eliza is sobbing. He hands the note over. "....here. This was on the table."
[23:20] <Eliza McIntash> It isn't fair. I knew it was a trap---he would never date a person who was stalking him. I just... I wanted to keep contact with him so that I could warn him---TELL HIM how wrong he was... try to help him... hide him.
[23:20] * Matsumi Kaze hugs Eliza tightly
[23:20] * Eliza McIntash is shaking and crying.
[23:20] <Matsumi Kaze> ..I'm here, Eliza
[23:20] <Eliza McIntash> I thought if I could get him alone, maybe he thought he could pump me for information, and I could tell him... I could make him leave before.... before he got hurt.
[23:21] * Eliza McIntash turns to Matsumi, and she's crying.
[23:21] <Eliza McIntash> I never loved him! T_____T
[23:21] <Eliza McIntash> I just wanted to make him safe! I thought if I could.... if I told him I could.... T_______T
[23:22] * Eliza McIntash cries and hugs Matsumi.
[23:23] <Matsumi Kaze> Eliza.....
[23:23] <Matsumi Kaze> ....I understand that...
[23:24] <Eliza McIntash> I bet they wouldn't have found him if I had stopped. He didn't know. He was just an idiot in over his head! I just wanted to help him.
[23:24] * Eliza McIntash gropes blindly for her sword, tears in her eyes.
[23:24] <Nelius Raoul> ....
[23:25] * Nelius Raoul pockets the note--- given Eliza's emotional state, she might want some time before reading it.
[23:26] *** The note is gone.
[23:26] * Matsumi Kaze wipes eliza's eyes
[23:26] <Matsumi Kaze> Eliza..look at me
[23:26] <Nelius Raoul> (( Did Eliza get the note--- Nelius was trying to get it to her. ))
[23:27] * Eliza McIntash 's clothes have come undone. She seemingly is wearing her Valkyrie uniform underneath her dating outfit---her clothes are so ripped it is showing.
[23:27] <Eliza McIntash> T__T
[23:28] * Eliza McIntash does manage to look at her commander. "Yes, *choke* Mrs. Kaze?"
[23:29] <Matsumi Kaze> let me tell you something....
[23:29] <Matsumi Kaze> this feeling...this sadness?
[23:29] <Matsumi Kaze> ...it always stays a little bit....
[23:30] <Matsumi Kaze> ...but
[23:30] <Matsumi Kaze> .....you meant well..and you fought as best you can
[23:30] <Matsumi Kaze> .....and that means more then you can possibly realize
[23:30] <Eliza McIntash> Fought?
[23:30] * Eliza McIntash looks around, as though just noticing the dead body.
[23:30] * Blue Flame burns something on a nearby wall.
[23:30] <Eliza McIntash> !
[23:31] * Nelius Raoul looks at this blue fire.
[23:31] * It reads "Regret your helplessness and feel despair."
[23:31] * Matsumi Kaze frowns...
[23:32] * Matsumi Kaze gets up and looks at the words
[23:32] * Eliza McIntash reads the message.
[23:32] <Matsumi Kaze> ....we are not helpless
[23:32] * Eliza McIntash 's lip quivers!
[23:32] * Nelius Raoul rolls his eyes.
[23:32] <Matsumi Kaze> we never have been
[23:32] <Matsumi Kaze> eliza
[23:32] * Noctis , at this exact moment--IS Baa--aaack!
[23:32] * Noctis is back
[23:32] * Eliza McIntash just sniffles.
[23:33] <Eliza McIntash> Yes, Commander?
[23:33] <Matsumi Kaze> I want you to know something
[23:33] <Matsumi Kaze> come here
[23:35] * Eliza McIntash obeys
[23:35] * Noctis follows Eliza.
[23:35] * Matsumi Kaze takes Eliza's hands
[23:35] * Matsumi Kaze gives them a squeeze
[23:36] <Matsumi Kaze> ....you are not simply one of my workers
[23:36] <Matsumi Kaze> you are one of my best friends
[23:36] <Matsumi Kaze> a friend I would do anything for
[23:36] <Matsumi Kaze> ...a friend I would die for
[23:36] <ThePaleElf> ...
[23:36] * Eliza McIntash nods, and says nothing.
[23:36] <Eliza McIntash> ...then don't.
[23:37] * What are you going to do about the dead bodies and the wrecked cafe?
[23:37] * Matsumi Kaze gets on the phone...
[23:37] * Matsumi Kaze watches as several police cars show up
[23:38] <Eliza McIntash> Did they live?
[23:38] <Eliza McIntash> The police officers?
[23:38] * Matsumi Kaze looks to see if the police officers are alive
[23:39] <Eliza McIntash> He was going to make them kill each other, and I realized....
[23:39] <Eliza McIntash> that things could not be the same whatever I did after that moment.
[23:39] * They are lying on the ground....
[23:41] * Alive but unconscious.
[23:41] * Matsumi Kaze watches as several officers check on the police officers on the floor
[23:41] * Eliza McIntash hugs them before she realizes she's doing it.
[23:44] <Eliza McIntash> Oh thank goodness. Thank goodness thank goodness.
[23:44] <Noctis> [SPOILER] You do realize that if you hadn't FINALLY used that aspect of yourself you have been ashamed of, they would be dead?
[23:45] <Eliza McIntash> - Will you SHUT UP FOR ONCE? -
[23:45] * Eliza McIntash stands.
[23:45] <Eliza McIntash> Everyone... thank you. Thank you for helping me.
[23:45] * Matsumi Kaze pauses to talk to one of the police officers..giving testimony
[23:45] <Eliza McIntash> I'm so very sorry you had to.
[23:45] <Matsumi Kaze> eliza..I'm always willing to be there for you :)
[23:52] * Nelius Raoul gives his testimony to the police before heading out.
[23:53] <Eliza McIntash> Thank you Eliza. I know you will be. I know.
[23:53] *** Nelius Raoul [Overlord.Shura.CreativeChaos@Rasetsu.Coalition.nw] has left #suburbansenshi4 (Another one bites the dust.)
[23:53] <Eliza McIntash> Officer, is there anything I can do to help you?
[23:53] <Nelius Raoul> (( Also, you goofed there LL. ))
[23:54] <Officer> I'd like to ask you some questions if possible..I need a testimony from you
[23:55] <Eliza McIntash> (( You presume too much, Nelius. ;) ))
[23:55] <Eliza McIntash> I'll... I'll help you anyway I can, officer.
[23:55] * Eliza McIntash suddenly realizes that there is blood on her sword.
[23:55] * Eliza's O-Wakizashi clatters to the ground.
[23:57] * Officer has one of the officers collect it
[23:57] <Officer> please tell us what happened
[23:58] <Nelius Raoul> (( You had Eliza thank herself. ))
[23:58] <Eliza's O-Wakizashi> Er... I wanted to meet a man---to give him a warning.
[23:58] <Eliza's O-Wakizashi> I thought this was the only way I could meet him and help him but... I was...
[23:58] *** Who says that's an error lol
[23:59] * Eliza's O-Wakizashi squeak I was too late.
[23:59] *** look into her history
[23:59] <Officer> go on
[23:59] <Eliza's O-Wakizashi> (( THAT Was, though ))
[23:59] *** aww damnit
[23:59] <Eliza McIntash> He... I tried to meet him here, but it... these men had killed him.
[23:59] *** so many pregnant possibilities ruined
[23:59] <Eliza McIntash> (( No, the Blade talking. ))
[23:59] <Eliza McIntash> (( I NEVER said the first one was a flub. ))
[00:00] *** eeeeee
[00:00] <Officer> go on..what did you do after that
[00:00] <Eliza McIntash> And... I.... had asked people in case there was a problem, and... there was a fight... I guess they are gone now.
[00:02] <Eliza McIntash> I'm just... I was afraid more people would be hurt, so I asked for their help and.... well...
[00:02] <Officer> is that weapon your's?
[00:02] <Eliza McIntash> I swear I never meant for this to happen---ANY of it.
[00:03] * Eliza McIntash looks down. "Well, officer, it was mailed to me. I swear I have no idea who sent it!"
[00:04] <Officer> it has blood on it...
[00:04] <Eliza McIntash> I have... it was this stalker, and I didn't want to bring it up, but the sword was the perfect width for my hands, and I was really afraid, and I wanted to show this person that he was in over his head, and I.... well, I remember crying over him and hugging my friends, and nothing else, really.
[00:04] <Eliza McIntash> But he was dead when I got here. Those men killed him.
[00:05] <Officer> how did it get blood on there
[00:07] <Eliza McIntash> I don't know.
[00:09] <Eliza McIntash> I just noticed it was there.
[00:09] <Eliza McIntash> I swear it.
[00:13] * Officer looks at eliza....
[00:14] <Eliza McIntash> I MEAN IT!
[00:14] <Eliza McIntash> I told you--somebody gave me the sword---it came with one of the creepy letters!
[00:14] <Eliza McIntash> I dont' know what happened.
[00:15] <Eliza McIntash> I must have had a panic attack--I get those when fighting happens around me... I don't like being around bloodshed. When I came to from my blackout, I was crying over Inspector Watabe.
[00:15] <Eliza McIntash> Er, I mean my panic attack.
[00:15] <Eliza McIntash> Freudian slip, I guess.
[00:15] <Eliza McIntash> But yes, that is what happened.
[00:16] <Eliza McIntash> I'm sure the others here, my friends, have told you the same!
[00:16] <Officer> no I belive you
[00:16] <Officer> I can see it in your eyes
[00:18] <Eliza McIntash> Er... I... thank you.
[00:18] <Eliza McIntash> I didn't expect that.
[00:18] <Eliza McIntash> Can I go now, please?
[00:18] <Eliza McIntash> I really really REALLY want some chocolate, and to lay around with my friends.
[00:19] <Officer> of course
[00:19] <Officer> thank you for your time
[00:20] * Eliza McIntash departs, to go be with her friends.
[00:20] *** Eliza McIntash  has quit IRC (For some, the hardest task in life is accepting whom and what they are.)
[00:20] * Noctis is in the corner, and he watches the policemen.
[00:20] *** Matsumi Kaze [AirGal@QTech.com] has left #suburbansenshi4
[00:21] * policemen work on the crime scene
[00:25] * Noctis has the note to Eliza in his mouth.
[00:27] * Noctis bats its tail.
[00:32] *** policemen has left #suburbansenshi4 (*working on the crime scene..bagging evidence..etc*)
[00:35] *** Noctis  has quit IRC
[00:41] <@spiritflame> Current Location is: Top of a Water Tower nearby in Tokyo
[00:41] * Simon Kerrick has moved back to the lobby
[00:41] *** Simon Kerrick has joined #suburbansenshi4
[00:41] <@spiritflame> konbanwa simon kerrick
[00:42] *** Masked man has joined #suburbansenshi4
[00:42] <@spiritflame> konbanwa masked man
[00:42] <Simon Kerrick> Well. That was fast.
[00:42] <Masked man> Yes... It was.
[00:43] <Masked man> I have his soul.
[00:43] <Simon Kerrick> WHAAAAAAT?
[00:43] <Simon Kerrick> HOLY CRA--I mean, well done.
[00:43] <Masked man> And his body went AWOL.
[00:44] <Simon Kerrick> You are kidding.
[00:44] <Masked man> I am not.
[00:44] <Simon Kerrick> Only way I know that could happen would be if you imprisoned a possessing force. Is that possible?
[00:44] <Simon Kerrick> Anyway, how did you get the soul?
[00:45] <Masked man> No, his soul was not the only thing inhabiting his body. Something else was there with him.
[00:46] <Masked man> Spoken in a different language. Very interesting. You should have seen it.
[00:46] <Simon Kerrick> ...I suspect I should have.
[00:47] <Simon Kerrick> So. You have his soul.
[00:47] <Simon Kerrick> That's... astounding.
[00:47] <Simon Kerrick> I underestimated you. It will NOT happen again.
[00:47] <Simon Kerrick> Mind if I ask just how you harvested his soul?
[00:47] * Simon Kerrick looks at Masked Man.
[00:47] *** Masked Man is a malicious figure adorned in a menacing attire. Not a shred of his body is showing other than his long unruly black hair. His face is hidden away behind a knight-helm styled mask. He is an unknown, and a sense of dread surrounds him like a cloak. More information about is Here.

is Level 1.
[00:48] <Masked man> I prefer it when they do underestimate me.
[00:48] * Simon Kerrick remembers this.
[00:48] <Masked man> But anyway. I have his soul. It is not on me, but I can retrieve it for you right now.
[00:48] <Simon Kerrick> Yes. You are much stronger then I had sensed
[00:48] <Simon Kerrick> I am trying to think what I could do with his soul.... but.... not... a....
[00:49] * Simon Kerrick realizes something.
[00:49] <Simon Kerrick> I'll take it.
[00:49] <Simon Kerrick> What's a fair price for a soul?
[00:49] *** Simon Kerrick is carrying:
1. Book about Christmas
2. Gold and Onyx Clockwork Rod
4. Undead Control Usurpation Stone
5. $4,650,000 in Rhino Horns
6. Powerful Sedatives
9. One remaining 100k Ruby
10. 1600 years of science courtesy of Rai
Assets: G¥0 .
[00:49] <Simon Kerrick> How about a bag of gold coins, to start off.
[00:49] <Simon Kerrick> I mean, that's classic bidding, right there!
[00:50] <Simon Kerrick> Say.
[00:50] <Masked man> Not interested.
[00:50] <Simon Kerrick> You mentioned you wanted a computer user, yes?
[00:50] <Simon Kerrick> I could arrange that, you know.
[00:50] <Masked man> I have.
[00:50] <Masked man> The more willing, the better.
[00:50] <Simon Kerrick> Eh.
[00:50] <Simon Kerrick> Will it be "returnable?"
[00:51] <Masked man> Ah, and there is the problem.
[00:51] <Masked man> You mean the soul?
[00:51] <Simon Kerrick> Oh, no, I meant the computer expert.
[00:52] <Simon Kerrick> I mean, I have a couple who have sworn themselves to me, but as the drow say, "the lives of underlings are coins in hand---spend them wisely."
[00:53] <Masked man> I am afraid they will not be returnable. Not where I am taking them.
[00:53] <Simon Kerrick> Ah. I will have to search my "expendables"
[00:54] <Simon Kerrick> That will take time. I didn't really check what they were good at after they mouthed off to me.
[00:54] <Simon Kerrick> I don't suppose magical items or weapons would suit you more?
[00:54] <Masked man> They will have to demonstrate extraordinary skill with manipulating computer systems.
[00:57] <Simon Kerrick> Mmmm.
[00:57] <Simon Kerrick> Why do you want this? Or is it none of my business?
[00:59] <Masked man> How much of your business are you willing to share to know mine?
[01:00] <Simon Kerrick> Even exchange.
[01:00] <Simon Kerrick> Take it or leave it---and do it now--that is saying a lot.
[01:00] * Simon Kerrick adopts a different bodily posture
[01:00] <Simon Kerrick> Hell... I am not even sure.
[01:01] <Simon Kerrick> You are pretty bad news. No question.
[01:01] <Masked man> I am perfectly willing to leave it alone, if it is what you wish.
[01:03] <Simon Kerrick> ...I DID promise you I would reward you if you did this.
[01:03] <Simon Kerrick> HOWEVER---and I cannot stress this enough--it is REALLY inconvenient that he does not have a body.
[01:04] <Simon Kerrick> It will cost tens of millions to fix---if I even can fix it.
[01:04] <Simon Kerrick> That's not what I call an exceptional success.
[01:04] <Masked man> It's somewhere... I have a feeling you may see it soon.
[01:04] <Simon Kerrick> Maybe if I tried to force it into a soul-less body?
[01:05] <Simon Kerrick> SERIOUSLY---this is SO ANNOYING.
[01:05] <Simon Kerrick> Still, I'm impressed that you got it. Very impressed.
[01:07] <Masked man> About that computer specialist.
[01:08] <Simon Kerrick> Mmm yes?
[01:08] <Simon Kerrick> The doomed and unfortunate computer specialist that will not be coming back.
[01:09] <Masked man> Is there something wrong with them?
[01:14] <Simon Kerrick> Well, yeah, kind of.
[01:14] <Masked man> What makes them defective?
[01:14] <Simon Kerrick> I don't want to just snatch up... a person on earth.
[01:14] * Simon Kerrick snickers loudly.
[01:14] <Simon Kerrick> Wow, that would make me popular.
[01:15] <Masked man> That is why the willing part is a key ingrediant.
[01:15] <Simon Kerrick> Aaaaaaaah.
[01:15] <Simon Kerrick> So is death assured, or merely incredibly likely?
[01:16] <Simon Kerrick> Now I am starting to become confident.
[01:17] <Masked man> The computer specialist must be alive. I am not going to kill them, if that is what you are getting at.
[01:18] <Simon Kerrick> Eh, I'm more convinced whatever is next to you will.
[01:18] <Simon Kerrick> Or the "background" will do it for you.
[01:18] <Simon Kerrick> I think I can find you a patsy to do this.
[01:19] <Simon Kerrick> Question, though---what will you do if he refuses to do what you ask?
[01:19] <Simon Kerrick> Going with you is one thing, I can ensure that happens. Making him obey you? Trickier. Especially since I get the vague impression that a normal person would balk at just seeing you walk down the street, much less being asked to help out your master stroke.
[01:21] <Masked man> What would I do if he refuses? Shake his hand, thank him for his time, and search for another who will not refuse. If they die a few days later from an unknown cause, I'm sure he will be given a nice funeral.
[01:25] <Simon Kerrick> Well, I could find that person for you. Sure.
[01:25] <Simon Kerrick> Yup.
[01:25] <Simon Kerrick> I could find that person.
[01:26] <Simon Kerrick> A person who will willingly accompany you into the jaws of hell itself on what is likely to be a one-way trip. That person--I am sure I can deliver for your use.
[01:29] <Masked man> I am not taking to Hell, or anyplace that resembles it. They will not even be the only one of their kind. I will have someone less... like me, be in charge of him.
[01:29] <Simon Kerrick> My goodness. All this for Rosso's soul?
[01:29] <Simon Kerrick> Mmmmmmm.
[01:29] <Simon Kerrick> This is a good bit of work.
[01:29] <Simon Kerrick> Well, one thing is for certain. I no longer doubt that you know where to find another powersource this world is hiding.
[01:31] <Masked man> It is not just this world, but many. It flows through a plethera of realms.
[01:34] <Simon Kerrick> Is it the Styx?
[01:34] <Simon Kerrick> The Oceanus?
[01:36] <Masked man> Don't be so narrow minded. In a way, it's almost everywhere. Possibly flowing through us right now in small traces.
[01:42] <Simon Kerrick> You don't mean the Ethereal Plane, do you?
[01:42] <Simon Kerrick> Sounds a lot like it.
[01:43] <Masked man> No, I can assure you that it is not.
[01:44] <Simon Kerrick> Mmmm, well, you don't seem to doubt yourself.
[01:44] <Simon Kerrick> There is one thing, though.
[01:44] <Simon Kerrick> I am going to a great deal of effort. I wonder if the soul will simply refuse me afterwards.
[01:44] <Simon Kerrick> Might I speak to the soul?
[01:44] <Simon Kerrick> Not now, but before I agree to assist you?
[01:46] <Masked man> Very well. I can arrange that.
[01:48] <Simon Kerrick> Good. Good, but it does not have to be now.
[01:49] <Simon Kerrick> Meanwhile, I have to think about how I can use a soul with no body.
[01:49] <Simon Kerrick> I have to say, I am grateful for your quick service.
[01:49] <Simon Kerrick> I will consult you again if I encounter further problems.
[01:50] <Masked man> As you wish. Until next time.
[01:51] * Simon Kerrick teleports away
[01:51] *** Simon Kerrick has quit IRC (Life is a calculated risk. So is Death.)
[01:53] * Masked man disappears quickly within the shadow of night.
[01:53] *** Masked man  has quit IRC

[22:09] *** At Raoul's home castle, Haru sits in Mita's lab, Naoto next to her.
[22:09] <Haru E> All right, that concludes the plans for Saturday.
[22:10] <Naoto> ♦ Understood. Relaying message.
[22:11] *** The message spreads across the cosmos to Raoul's allies.
[22:11] <Naoto> ♦ Complete.
[22:11] <Haru E> Thanks, Naoto.
[22:12] <Naoto> ♦ You're quite welcome, Lady Haru.
[22:15] <Naoto> ♦ With my legs now functional again, I shall do more than just my fair share of things in the upcoming months.
[22:16] <Haru E> Of course, Naoto. It's been great seeing you back up and moving again. How much you want to estimate Keiko's excitement when she comes back?
[22:17] <Naoto> ♦ Now that is an estimate I dare not touch~
[22:17] *** The cyborg and gynoid share some laughs.
[22:20] <Naoto> ♦ That reminds me, have you heard word about the Overlord's research project?
[22:21] <Haru E> I did--- dad mentioned something about sating his curiosity about the old Artifact of Absolute Death--- mainly how and why it took over the demon that held it last.
[22:21] <Naoto> ♦ Why is that?
[22:23] <Haru E> Remember how that Baal-obsessed cult attacked Zetta's Netherworld? One of their members dropped a mineral shard--- the very same kind used in the aformentioned artifact.
[22:24] <Haru E> Dad thinks that one of their more "rational" members was looking to make another AAD in the off-chance their attempt at reviving Baal went south.
[22:27] <Naoto> ♦ Hrm... normally I'd make a quip about how one of them had more than two brain cells to use, but that wasn't much of a laughing matter to begin with.
[22:29] <Haru E> Still, they're long gone now, and if another group decides to follow in their footsteps, we've already got orders to take 'em down.
[22:30] <Naoto> ♦ Acknowledged.
[22:34] <Naoto> ♦ I believe a change in subject would be appropriate.
[22:35] <Haru E> Sure deal.
[22:36] <Haru E> Y'think dad's noticed at all, how even Zotia's been making eyes at him?
[22:36] <Naoto> ♦ Estimated chances of that happening---- 1.2459% percent and slightly dropping.
[22:42] <Naoto> ♦ It is likely due to his current mindset--- as he has been used to constant danger, he likely refuses to let anyone else get involved.
[22:43] <Haru E> Y'know, I think that's what I said to Yumi back when we first met.
[22:44] <Haru E> And considering how 1337-A has been under fire a whole lot, I can see his angle.
[22:54] <Naoto> ♦ While he is very willing to confide in us about what current problems are availing his allies and friends, this is something that he'd have to figure on his own. I fear that if he continues down this path, sooner or later something is going to crumble.
[22:57] <Naoto> ♦ Though, if what you confided in me is true, and he does think himself unworthy of pursuing a romantic partner, then he very well may be taking the smartest route by not pursuing anyone.
[22:58] <Haru E> Huh.... you have a point there.
[23:00] <Haru E> Still, no matter how you slice it, that's gonna be a number of crushed hearts right then and there.
[23:04] <Naoto> ♦ I am aware of this.
[23:05] <Naoto> ♦ Some would call it a hopeless situation. Others would just laugh.
[23:09] <Haru E> Maybe so...
[23:10] <Haru E> Anyway, I'm gonna make certain that I got everything we'll need for tomorrow.
[23:11] <Naoto> ♦ Understood. I shall finish this compilation, then adjourn for the evening. Until next time.
[23:11] * Haru E bids Naoto night, then heads elsewhere.
[23:12] *** Haru heads to the other side of the castle, where the new armory lies. Using her own passcode, she enters.
[23:12] <Haru E> Let's see....
[23:13] * Haru E begins to rummage through the weapons and armor stockpiled here. "Man, dad brought the good stuff out all right."
[23:14] <Haru E> ....OK, localized packs stocked and ready for shipment.
[23:14] <Haru E> Supply-kits filled and ready to go.
[23:15] <Haru E> Usatako's updated with the new PX-Drive engine.
[23:17] <Haru E> Coordinates sent and stored.
[23:18] <Haru E> Link up is prepared to go off on the signal.
[23:19] <Haru E> Excellent--- that's everything needed for the operation.
[23:20] <Haru E> Now then--- while I'm here...
[23:22] * Haru E accesses a side-panel, withdrawing some small devices she had stored there. (Of the six I got, which of these four should accompany us on the mission?)
[23:23] * Haru E takes her time to deliberate on this.
[23:25] <Haru E> (Visor's due for an update anyway. I'll get the materials once the operation's over.)
[23:27] * Haru E makes her selection, then closes the armory down, re-locking it.
[23:34] <Haru E> (...thinking about it...)
[23:34] * Haru E re-opens the armory and the side-panel, taking the other two devices.
[23:34] <Haru E> (Never said I had to only use the four I chose--- I might as well swap these on the go.)
[23:35] * Haru E re-locks the armory for the final time tonight.
[23:35] * Haru E hides the devices within a small dimensional pocket. (I'll access these before the operation begins.)
[23:37] *** Haru heads upstairs to her room. Might as well get some shuteye in before preparing to commence the plan.
[23:37] *** Haru E [SpannerinDWorks@Coalition.nw] has left #suburbansenshi4 (All's ready and waiting.)
[23:38] *** The Castle falls silent, minus the few Guard Demons making their rounds.

[00:06] * Alexandra the Great sits on the top floor, in middle of a room in a broken-down system of appartments, peering through the destruction of the southern wall to the labyrinth ahead in thought.
[00:06] <@spiritflame> Current Location is: FOGworld
[00:09] * Alexandra the Great leans on her rifle and slowly, haphazardly brings the weapon closer to her body, pulling the barrel under her chin, fully conscious to what she's doing.
[00:25] <Alexandra the Great> She stares outward with a vacancy in her eyes. Her fingers slip around the trigger, definely the one feature in control of it all, but that's okay. The safety is on... Or at least she thinks so? Yeah. The safety is definitely on. And if it isn't, so what?
[00:25] * Alexandra the Great She stares outward with a vacancy in her eyes. Her fingers slip around the trigger, definely the one feature in control of it all, but that's okay. The safety is on... Or at least she thinks so? Yeah. The safety is definitely on. And if it isn't, so what?
[00:28] * Alexandra the Great mumbles something to herself as she brings herself so close to death. "Is this the fall of Alexandra the Great?"
[00:32] * She thinks about it, pressing down onto the cold steal that saved her from a terrible fate so many times before.
[00:34] * Then those eyes look forward with a new, undefined focus, and she lowers the weapon.
[00:35] * She snorts and scoffs, finding humor in a desperate situation that she makes her excuse for continuing her survival.
[00:37] <Alexandra the Great> The show MUST go on...
[00:39] * That smirk flickered for a breif moment. Something about it gave away she was no longer all there, at least not like this.
[00:42] * Such is the price of the toll she pays. One ticket straight to hell, please!
[00:46] * Alex gets up. She can't stay here any longer. Now she has to find the other.
[00:46] *** Alex has quit IRC
[23:34] *** Masked Figure has joined #suburbansenshi4
[23:34] <@spiritflame> konbanwa masked figure
[23:35] * Masked Figure appears outside the Presidents Office. And takes off the mask
[23:35] * Masked Figure is now known as Unmasked Figure
[23:35] *** the doors are closed..two guards stand outside
[23:36] <Unmasked Figure> Please let me past. I have imporant informantioon that I must speak with the Lady Presidant about.
[23:37] <Guard> may I see some identification
[23:37] * Unmasked Figure hands some over.
[23:37] * Guard looks it over...and opens the door
[23:38] * Unmasked Figure walks in.
[23:38] *** there's a whirring sound...as a silver squat like dog thing rolls over..extending a gun from it's "nose"
[23:39] <K-9 II> ♦ HALT!
[23:39] <K-9 II> ♦ Do not move or I shall stun you!
[23:39] <Unmasked Figure> I have no time for your games. I must speak with the President.
[23:40] * Unmasked Figure does not move.
[23:40] <Trey> K-9 down...
[23:40] <K-9 II> ♦ yes mistress!
[23:40] * K-9 II 's nose retracts
[23:40] * Unmasked Figure looks at Trey.
[23:40] *** Trey is your average everyday Trey
[23:41] <Trey> and you are?
[23:41] * Trey sits on the edge of her desk, looking at the figure
[23:41] * Unmasked Figure states their name for her.
[23:42] <Trey> oh yes...how is your father
[23:42] <Unmasked Figure> He is well.
[23:43] <Unmasked Figure> I'm afraid however I am not here on a social visit.
[23:43] * Unmasked Figure holds out the message from Thrash "I was asked to deliver this. From Lord Thrash. And Also inform you that the High Councial is attempting to put King Obsdian of the Planet Nemisis on trial
[23:44] <Trey> oh do tell?
[23:44] * Trey takes out hte message and looks at it
[23:44] <Trey> ..............
[23:45] <Trey> ....I see
[23:46] <Unmasked Figure> I.. Also must ask a personal favor.
[23:47] <Trey> yes?
[23:48] * Unmasked Figure explains the hidden sneaky plan
[23:49] <Unmasked Figure> I feel I can drag out their true motives.
[23:49] <Trey> very well
[23:50] <Trey> I agree to it
[23:50] <Unmasked Figure> If anyone asks, I was not here. Alright?
[23:51] <Unmasked Figure> We can't have them knowing I tipped you off.
[23:51] <Unmasked Figure> But please be safe.
[23:51] <Trey> go out the backway
[23:51] * Unmasked Figure looks genuinely concerned
[23:52] <Unmasked Figure> Anything you wish to me relay to Thrash or Inten or the others?
[23:52] <Trey> tell them...
[23:52] <Trey> Caro
[23:53] <Unmasked Figure> Caro?
[23:54] <Trey> Caro
[23:54] * Unmasked Figure looks confused but nods. "Thank you for your aid Lady President"
[23:55] * Trey pulls the figure into a hug
[23:56] * Unmasked Figure is hugged!
[23:57] <Trey> now go out the back way
[23:58] * Unmasked Figure smirks and nods puts the mask back on, heading out the back way.
[23:59] * Unmasked Figure looks back once before warping out.
[23:59] * Trey wanders over and presses a button....
[23:59] <Trey> ....my friend..it's time for you to return
[23:59] *** Trey has left #suburbansenshi4 (*watches as a figure is transported in*)
[17:01] <@spiritflame> Current Location is: Coalition Netherworld
[17:02] *** All seems quiet at the Overlord's Castle. Maverick and Sonia, a pair of fighters, have been at work salvaging the remains of Overlord Sirea's demolished castle in the other Netherworld.
[17:02] *** Tim and Yui, in the meantime, have been gaguing demons' reactions to the new Overlord.
[17:03] *** Downstairs, in another room....
[17:03] * Nelius Raoul sits in the midst of a glowing green rune. Mage Knight B is also here, her eyes closed as she concentrates on something.
[17:04] <B> Seems your left eye was correct again... I've been getting visions of something arriving within the next two days.
[17:05] <Nelius Raoul> This happened before the prior beast arrived..... but never to this extreme.
[17:07] <Nelius Raoul> It almost feels like my eye wants to erupt from its socket.
[17:08] <B> Considering that same eye was gouged out, and acts as your conduit for that 'Belderiver' form of yours, I'm honestly surprised it's held up like this.
[17:12] * Nelius Raoul gets to his feet as the rune fades away.
[17:12] <Nelius Raoul> Still, that's one I owe you. Thanks for stopping by again.
[17:13] <B> Think nothing of it. What with all of the other jerkoffs trying to collapse reality for s[BLEEP]ts and giggles, gotta do something to throw a number of spanners into their works.
[17:15] <B> Speaking of which, how goes the restoration projects?
[17:18] <Nelius Raoul> Far as I've seen, things are going rather well. A number of the imbalanced Netherworlds are coming back together, and I've managed the cooperation of some other Overlords to get through this.
[17:19] <B> And what about things pertaining to that?
[17:19] *** The Mage Knight points to the Shadow Crystal currently hanging around Nelius' neck.
[17:23] <Nelius Raoul> We have info on the locations, though what we don't know is what we're up against. While I'm at it, I should ask Lazard about something that's been on my mind.
[17:24] <Nelius Raoul> If the 13 of us are Warriors of the Dawn, then did Warriors of the Dusk exist at one point?
[17:24] <B> Ah, the old "Light v. Dark" argument.
[17:26] <Nelius Raoul> Exactly.
[17:30] <B> Well, if I'm not needed for anything else, I'm gonna go see Raph and Hilde.
[17:30] <Nelius Raoul> Enjoy yourself, and let 'em know I said hello.
[17:31] *** B has left #suburbansenshi4 ("Can do. Until next time.")
[17:31] * Nelius Raoul exits the room, entering into the Library. He heads to the back, where the books he obtained from the ruined tower are stored.
[17:32] <Nelius Raoul> (Well, I have some time.....)
[17:32] * Nelius Raoul picks one of the tomes, finds a seat, and begins reading.
[17:37] <Nelius Raoul> (Huh.... if I'm translating this right, then this book is all about Rasetsu power--- I should be careful with this info. Don't need another bunch of Baal-wannabes trying to invade.)
[17:39] *** His comms gives a beep.
[17:40] * Nelius Raoul looks over, bookmarking his page before answering.
[17:40] <Nelius Raoul> ♦ Raoul here. What's going on?
[17:40] <Maverick> ♦ Maverick reporting in---- salvage complete. We got everything we could from the castle remains.
[17:42] <Maverick> ♦ Sonia and I will be checking in shortly.
[17:42] <Nelius Raoul> ♦ Understood.
[17:43] * Nelius Raoul terminates the call, getting some notes written down out of the tome before heading upstairs.
[17:46] *** The two fighters step out of a Dimensional Gate right outside the main entrance, carting behind them some vehicles filled with old weapons and armor, some clothing, textbooks, bedroom furniture....
[17:49] *** Several demons begin unloading everything salvaged. A check of quality is then underway--- while a good amount of the decent apparel will be used for the Overlord's Castle, the rest will get sold to RosenQueen, and the worst of the lot will be broken down and used as materials to build better items.
[17:55] *** The assorted items are seperated as defined by the prior parameters--- the good stuff is brought into the Castle, and split up amongst the vassals and other working demons. The items going to RosenQueen are checklisted, and the castle vendor prepares an invoice for how much the sold materials will be worth. As for the junk destined to be broken down and used to forge new things....
[17:57] <Mita> ♡ OHHHH YEEESSS!! ♡
[17:58] * Mita gets ahold of the vehicle with the items destined for the materials pile.
[17:58] <Mita> ♡ This is heaven~ ♡
[17:58] <Naoto> ♦ Oh dear, she's at it again.
[17:58] <Tia> At least this time, we won't have any explosions.
[18:00] <Naoto> ♦ I doubt it's explosions we need to worry about.
[18:00] <Naoto> ♦ At the very least, Maxwell will have new parts for those ships he has been constructing.
[18:01] <Tia> Fair enough. Either way, let's make certain Maxwell even gets anything from this.
[18:02] *** With everything sorted, distributed, sold, and stored away, the activity begins to die down.
[18:05] * Nelius Raoul is about to head back downstairs, but a book in the salvaged pile catches his eye.
[18:05] <Nelius Raoul> (What have we here?)
[18:05] *** It's no regular book he's picked up--- this is Sirea's Journal!
[18:06] <Nelius Raoul> (Much as I'm honestly surprised they found this, it's more of a surprise it survived the blast nearly a year back...)
[18:06] * Nelius Raoul flips it open.
[18:08] <Journal Entry> ♦ Hard to believe it's been 200 years since I became Overlord. Even as I'm surrounded by my faithful vassals, it still feels like a long-running dream.
[18:08] *** He flips a few pages forward.
[18:08] <Journal Entry> ♦ Even with Celestial Relations opening up, it still feels like Celestia has yet to fully let go of its prejudice.
[18:08] *** A few more pages.
[18:10] <Journal Entry> ♦ Even though I've heard it shameful for a demon to admit, I know what this curious tugging in my heart is, having heard such from the Celestial immigrants. Perhaps once this investigation is over, I'll take that risk and confess....
[18:11] * Nelius Raoul checks the date on these entries.
[18:11] *** The dates are logged from 3345 to 3349.
[18:11] <Nelius Raoul> (This is right around the time that....)
[18:12] *** He flips to what is the last entry of 3346.
[18:14] <Journal Entry> ♦ William has reported activity in a suspicious shrine on a long-abandoned human world--- it even lacks connections to the Netherworld or Celestia. It stands to reason that this may be the work of another Overlord-hopeful wanting a free world.
[18:16] *** He flips forward a page.
[18:17] <Journal Entry> ♦ I have been finding myself.... irritable, for lack of a better word. Strange dreams torment me, telling me that "their heart" is among my vassals, and that "their soul" has been reincarnated.
[18:18] *** He flips forward another few pages.
[18:20] <Journal Entry> ♦ Now I am certain that something has infected my mind and being. The other day Cera asks why I halted the execution of a vassal that failed her mission---- yet I do not recall ordering such.
[18:20] <Nelius Raoul> (Infected... their heart? What in the hell....)
[18:22] <Nelius Raoul> (Wait.... that thing I fought in the Shrine some months back...)
[18:22] <Nelius Raoul> (It also went on about me having its heart---- then that would mean....)
[18:23] <Nelius Raoul> .......
[18:25] * Nelius Raoul looks to the very last known entry.
[18:29] <Journal Entry> ♦ I fear my consciousness is no longer my own. I have been overhearing my vassals' thoughts about my "actions" as of late, yet it seems Cera is oblivious to their words. Whatever has gotten to me must've gotten to her as well..... should I grow too tyrannical under this influence's spell, then I wish for one of my vassals to kill me.
[18:33] <Nelius Raoul> (So my ex-boss was under the control of something else....)
[18:33] * Nelius Raoul frowns at this.
[18:34] <Nelius Raoul> (Suddenly it paints the past few years in a different light.)
[18:37] <Nelius Raoul> (Though, if that thing I took out at the shrine is what was possessing her.... then the more optomistic would say that I fulfilled her wish.)
[18:38] * Nelius Raoul decides to hang onto the journal, sending it to his room via transfer.
[18:40] <Nelius Raoul> (No use dwelling on what was. Both Sirea and that....thing, whatever the hell it was, are both gone. Time to focus on the present.)
[18:42] *** His comms comes to life again.
[18:43] <Nelius Raoul> ♦ Raoul here. Go ahead.
[18:44] <Tim> ♦ Tim reporting in. Far as most of the demons care, you're doing fine as Overlord, if not a little odd for actually taking care of matters outside the Netherworld.
[18:46] <Nelius Raoul> ♦ I see. Anything else coming to the forefront?
[18:46] <Tim> ♦ Not much else at the moment. Anything else does crop up, we'll be in touch.
[18:47] <Nelius Raoul> ♦ Got it.
[18:47] *** The call ends.
[18:50] <Nelius Raoul> (I should tread lightly from here on. While they have been diligent in their reports, I've no doubt that sooner or later there is gonna be someone who'll try to grab my throne for their own reasons.)
[18:52] * Nelius Raoul looks to his Shadow Crystal, feeling his left eye act up again. (Then there's whatever is causing this.... ominous feeling.)
[18:58] <Haru E> ♦ Dad! We got trouble!!
[18:58] <Haru E> ♦ These weird worm-slug creatures showed up--- barely anything we're doing is affecting them!
[18:59] <Haru E> ♦ If my scans are right, these things are like the Hel-beasts from before.
[18:59] <Nelius Raoul> .......son of a b[BLEEP]ch. It has to be them.
[19:00] * Nelius Raoul sends a message to Zotia to keep tabs on matters, then performs an Instant Transmission to the Hotel!
[19:00] *** Nelius Raoul [Overlord.Shura.CreativeChaos@Rasetsu.Coalition.nw] has left #suburbansenshi4
[19:07] * Zotia receives the message, and assumes her duty as the third-in-command.
[19:13] <Zotia> (All this time, and yet I still haven't made it clear to him....)
[19:16] * Shizuka sees Zotia as she checks in. (Hmm...)
[19:17] * Shizuka reads Zotia's aura.
[19:18] *** The Sagestress is emitting an aura of longing, of desire....
[19:21] <Shizuka> (Hrm... so ol' Zotia has someone on the brain. Wonder who that could be~)
[19:35] * Shizuka sidles up to Zotia. "Hi there~"
[19:35] * Zotia is startled by the Kunoichi's sudden appearance. "Ah! Oh, hello Shizuka...."
[19:39] <Shizuka> How goes?
[19:39] <Zotia> Oh, it goes.... the master had to quell an attack, so I'm keeping things under wraps here.
[19:40] <Shizuka> Aha.
[19:40] <Shizuka> So then....
[19:41] * Shizuka gets a little too close to the Sagestress. "What else is on your mind♡"
[19:41] * Zotia backs away. "Wha--what are you---"
[19:42] <Shizuka> Oh, call it a hunch~
[19:45] <Shizuka> So tell me.... what else have you got going on in your mind?
[19:47] * Zotia continues to back away, her face turning a shade of pink.
[19:50] <Shizuka> Aw, no need to be so shy.
[19:51] <Shizuka> C'mon, you can tell me all about it~
[19:52] * Zotia continues backing away from the Kunoichi. "H-hey, what brought this on?!"
[19:55] <Shizuka> Oh, your aura told me quite a lot--- namely that you've got a little something for someone.
[19:58] * Zotia feels her face heat up.
[19:59] <Shizuka> And there's a universal sign.
[20:01] <Zotia> ....very well, you're right.
[20:02] <Zotia> ....it's the Master.
[20:02] <Shizuka> You too, huh?
[20:02] * Zotia looks shocked. "Wait what!"
[20:04] <Shizuka> Yep--- you're not the only one with eyes on him.
[20:05] <Shizuka> Let's see.... I know Mita's had snark-offs with him, Farris mentioned trusting him explicitly..... hell, even I'll admit, he's got something going on.
[20:06] * Zotia just looks floored.
[20:07] <Shizuka> Hmm..... well, if you want any chance at snagging him, you'd best work quick.
[20:09] <Shizuka> Though, if things don't work out, you could come visit me.
[20:09] <Zotia> Visit.....you?
[20:09] * Shizuka just winks at Zotia, and sees the Sagestress' face turn red once more.
[20:12] <Shizuka> ♡ My door is open ♡
[20:12] *** Shizuka has left #suburbansenshi4 (She leaves with a particular sway in her hips.)
[20:13] * Zotia just turns redder as she contemplates this.
[20:13] <Zotia> (Goodness me....)
[20:14] * Zotia tries to shake the thoughts from her mind as she continues her duties.
[20:17] *** Zotia has left #suburbansenshi4 ((Miss Shizuka may have a point. If I am to unburden these emotions, I should tell him.))
[20:18] *** The vassals at the castle continue on their duties.
[20:23] *** The RosenQueen invoice comes through. Zotia clears it, and takes the money.

[22:29] <@spiritflame> konbanwa engineer
[22:30] * Chiyoko Shinkaze smiles, approuching her fellow machine
[22:31] * Engineer turns slowly, setting his yellow lenses on the woman.
[22:32] <Chiyoko Shinkaze> I wish to thank you for helping me
[22:33] <Engineer> It҉ ̢iś my̕ job̢.̡
[22:34] * Chiyoko Shinkaze blinks and touches the engineer carefully
[22:35] * Engineer feels mostly cold to the touch, but some places are rather hot.
[22:35] <Chiyoko Shinkaze> you were built for war?
[22:38] <Engineer> N͘o͟,̶ ̢I̡ wa͝s̀ bưil͞t̡ ̛t͠o cr̶ea̷te.͝

[23:02] <Chiyoko Shinkaze> ^^;;;
[23:04] <Engineer> V͝e̕ry ҉we͏ll.
[23:06] * Chiyoko Shinkaze looks around..and approuches Scout
[23:07] <Scout> Morinin' precious!
[23:10] <Chiyoko Shinkaze> precious???
[23:10] <Scout> Aw yes, you're a machine, aren't you?
[23:10] <Scout> You're like us!
[23:11] <Chiyoko Shinkaze> oh yes I am..
[23:11] <Chiyoko Shinkaze> um...........
[23:11] <Chiyoko Shinkaze> I have a question..do you all know much about asher?
[23:12] <Scout> Oh yeah, we know lots about him.
[23:12] <Scout> Every one of us.
[23:15] <Chiyoko Shinkaze> ...does he have...feelings
[23:16] <Scout> Well yeah! We all do.
[23:17] <Scout> What type a feelings are you talking about here?
[23:17] <Chiyoko Shinkaze> I mean do you think he can actually.....like someone
[23:18] <Scout> Yeah, he likes lots of people, and things... especially things. Like rum.
[23:18] <Scout> And gold...
[23:22] <Chiyoko Shinkaze> ....does he like..anyone
[23:23] <Scout> He likes Isaak, he liked his crewmates, he like miss Ironheim, and he definitely likes the non-familial ladies.
[23:25] <Chiyoko Shinkaze> I see......
[23:25] <Chiyoko Shinkaze> I do not understand..my feelings for him
[23:28] <Scout> Welp, what're they like?
[23:29] <Chiyoko Shinkaze> I feel....a pull towards him
[23:31] <Scout> Oh! That's called friendship. Yep, he's a character. Making friends isn't too hard for him. Just have to find the right crowd.
[23:35] <Chiyoko Shinkaze> oh???
[23:38] <Scout> Yeah, that sounds like it.
[23:40] <Chiyoko Shinkaze> oh..alright....what is your role by the way?
[23:44] <Scout> Oh, I just do stuff. I usually run ahead of the pack to check if the coast is clear, or discover new boons we could pick up or something.
[23:47] <Chiyoko Shinkaze> very dangerious
[23:48] <Scout> Yeah, but sometimes we have motorcyles to accompany us.
[23:51] <Chiyoko Shinkaze> motorcyles??
[23:51] <Scout> Yeah, they're really energetic and all.
[23:52] <Scout> They're like land jets.
[23:53] * Chiyoko Shinkaze smiles "you're all so interesting"
[23:54] <Scout> Thanks! Not a lot of people say that.
[23:55] <Scout> They usually say "AHHHHH! RUN! IT'S THE MACHINES!"
[23:58] <Chiyoko Shinkaze> ...but I'm a mchine as well
[23:58] <Chiyoko Shinkaze> *machine
[00:00] <Scout> Yeah, but you look so human.
[00:02] <Chiyoko Shinkaze> yes but underneath..
[00:02] * Chiyoko Shinkaze 's face splits open....revealing the complex machinery under it....
[00:03] <Scout> Still, people only see the outside... Unless you do that.
[00:04] <Scout> We don't have to worry about being screamed at for much longer though. We have a whole new planet.
[00:04] <Scout> Nothing but machines all around!
[00:04] <Scout> And mother dearest.
[00:05] * Chiyoko Shinkaze 's face closes back
[00:09] <Chiyoko Shinkaze> I was built mainly to pose as someone else
[00:09] <Chiyoko Shinkaze> ...I am stil ldefining myself
[00:10] <Scout> That's a bummer.
[00:10] <Scout> You're only yourself now, right?
[00:20] <Chiyoko Shinkaze> yes I am..
[00:20] <Chiyoko Shinkaze> though I am capable of changing into anyone
[00:22] <Chiyoko Shinkaze> at least outwardly
[00:27] <Scout> Like that one machine from Terminator 2?
[00:32] <Chiyoko Shinkaze> terminator 2?
[00:38] <Chiyoko Shinkaze> what is that?
[00:46] <Scout> It's a movie we found here.
[00:48] <Chiyoko Shinkaze> I shall have to watch it
[00:49] <Chiyoko Shinkaze> good day to you then..I hope to speak to you all again *bows*
[00:51] *** Chiyoko Shinkaze has left #suburbansenshi4
[01:02] <Scout> Aight, I'll see you next time, then.
[01:03] *** Scout  has quit IRC
[20:00] <@spiritflame> Current Location is: Nethervessel Drapnir
[20:01] *** High above the Coalition Netherworld sits the newest spacefaring vessel--- Drapnir. A massive warship, it's outfitted with many of the latest in offensive and defensive capabilities.
[20:03] <Nelius Raoul> Gotta admit, you outdid yourself this time, Maxwell.
[20:04] * Maxwell is a Netherworld Pirate.
[20:04] <Maxwell> I can't take all the praise for this--- those parts Maverick and Sonia dug up helped get this baby up in the air a whole year ahead of schedule.
[20:05] <Maxwell> Not to mention it was Tarma that got the engine trouble sorted out.
[20:06] <Nelius Raoul> Gotta ask, though--- how'd you convince Mita to not tamper with anything outside of your supervision?
[20:06] <Maxwell> Oh, I have my ways~
[20:06] *** Scene Switch***
[20:07] *** Down at Mita's Lab....
[20:07] * Mita is drooling all over several new mechanical pieces she got.
[20:07] <Mita> ♡ Ohohohohoooo yesssssssssssss ♡
[20:07] *** Back to the ship
[20:10] *** The ship itself contains the facilities normally available at the castle--- RosenQueen Vendors, Netherworld Clinic, Item and Character Worlders, Demon Dojo...
[20:14] <Nelius Raoul> Excellent--- with this, if something does require our attention outside the usual places, and the gates are a no-go, this can get us to our destination.
[20:17] <Maxwell> Glad you like it.
[20:17] <Nelius Raoul> You can expect the usual compensation for this.
[20:18] <Maxwell> Actually, boss--- I'm kinda looking for info as payment this go-around.
[20:18] * Nelius Raoul gives the Pirate a look. "Info, huh? What sort?"
[20:21] <Maxwell> Oh, mostly concerning the availability of Tia.
[20:22] <Nelius Raoul> Well, you'd have to take that up with Mita and Tia themselves.
[20:22] <Maxwell> No no no, not like that, boss. I mean availability.
[20:25] <Nelius Raoul> Again, refer to my previous statement. I tend to stay out of the personal affairs of my vassals. So long as they're enjoying themselves and getting done what needs done, I care little for whom they see on their own time.
[20:32] <Maxwell> .....noted. And on that note---
[20:32] * Maxwell zips right to the transporter and beams down to the Netherworld.
[20:32] *** Maxwell has left #suburbansenshi4 ("Hey Mita, I need a moment to chat with you.")
[20:35] * Nelius Raoul looks to the helm of the ship. "So Naoto, quick system check."
[20:35] <Delta-3361AF> ♦ Acknowledged. Performing scan...
[20:36] *** A quick diagnostic check is done of the Drapnir.
[20:36] <Delta-3361AF> ♦ All systems are green. No anomalies detected. Everything is in perfect working order.
[20:37] <Nelius Raoul> Thanks, Naoto. Now let's bring her down.
[20:38] *** The Drapnir descends into the Netherworld, breaking through the atmosphere and landing a ways from the Overlord's Castle.
[20:38] * Nelius Raoul and Naoto disembark, alongside the other working hands.
[20:39] <@spiritflame> Current Location is: Coalition Netherworld
[20:39] * Nelius Raoul heads indoors with everyone.
[20:40] <Zotia> Welcome back, Master Raoul. How did the test go?
[20:41] <Nelius Raoul> They outdid themselves this time. The Drapnir performs exceptionally well.
[20:42] <Zotia> I see. While you were away, Lady Haru and Miss Kanri stopped by, looking to pick up some Serpent Demon for dinner.
[20:44] <Nelius Raoul> Wanting to get it fresh, I'd wager.
[20:44] <Zotia> Indeed.
[20:46] <Nelius Raoul> If any other matters crop up, I'll be in my study finishing some work.
[20:47] * Nelius Raoul heads off to the third floor. About a minute later....
[20:47] <Zotia> (Dammit all! He was right there, right Seraph-damn there and I couldn't say it!)
[20:50] * Zotia mentally berates herself. (I can face down other invading Overlords, I've been able to make Great Wyrms and Galactic Demons run by sheer will alone, but this---- something so simple as a confession is beyond me?!?!)
[20:51] <Zotia> (Seems those demons had a point--- these feelings of attraction are dangerous.)
[20:56] * Zotia does her best to get her mind off the situation, not quite realizing that a certain someone is keeping tabs on her.
[20:59] *** If one were to listen carefully, they could hear music coming from another part of the castle. Seems Anzu's dance lessons are going strong today.
[21:00] * Anzu is leading several demons, angels and humans in a dance routine. Her dances not only help shape up the participants, they were adapted from a series of dodging maneuvers that formed flexibility.
[21:19] *** Upstairs...
[21:19] * Nelius Raoul finishes some paperwork. (And that ought to get everything squared away for the next few weeks.)
[21:21] * Nelius Raoul gets up from his chair, and stretches, popping a few joints as he does so.
[21:22] * Nelius Raoul looks over, sighting a certain box. (Right, I should be delivering that here in a bit.)
[21:27] * Nelius Raoul picks the box up, and opens a gate back to Earth 1337-A.
[21:27] <@spiritflame> Current Location is: Tokyo Streets
[21:28] * Nelius Raoul steps out of a gate in an abandoned alleyway. He keeps a hold of the box.
[21:28] <Nelius Raoul> (Let's see... right about here should do.)
[21:28] * Nelius Raoul texts Kisuke Taisho ◜ It's complete. Shall we arrange a meeting location?◞
[21:30] * Golden_Heir texts Nelius ◜ Where is convenient for you?◞
[21:30] * Nelius Raoul texts Kisuke Taisho ◜ Anywhere, really.◞
[21:31] * Golden_Heir texts Nelius ◜ the park? by the lake?◞
[21:33] * Nelius Raoul texts Kisuke Taisho ◜ That works. I'm on my way.◞
[21:34] * Golden_Heir texts Nelius ◜ Will see you there.◞
[21:34] * Nelius Raoul heads for the designated meeting area.
[21:35] *** Golden_Heir has joined #suburbansenshi4
[21:35] <@spiritflame> konbanwa golden_heir
[21:36] <@spiritflame> Current Location is: Park by the Lake
[21:36] * Nelius Raoul arrives, and immediately spots Kisuke.
[21:36] * Golden_Heir is there under a tree reading a book
[21:36] <Nelius Raoul> Here we are.
[21:37] <Golden_Heir> I cannot thank you enough Nelius. What do I owe you?
[21:37] <Nelius Raoul> Just treat Kanri right. That's all I can ask for.
[21:38] <Golden_Heir> I would never treat her any other was but the best.
[21:39] * Nelius Raoul hands the box over to Kisuke.
[21:40] * Golden_Heir takes the box and looks inside sighing
[21:40] *** The jewelry piece Nelius was commissioned to craft looks beautiful.
[21:41] <Golden_Heir> It's fantastic. Thank you. I truly hope she says yes.
[21:42] <Nelius Raoul> You're welcome.
[21:44] <Nelius Raoul> Well then, I'll be on my way back. Until next time.
[21:45] <Golden_Heir> Until then
[21:46] * Nelius Raoul turns and heads off.
[21:46] *** Golden_Heir has left #suburbansenshi4 (Until you agree.)
[21:47] <Nelius Raoul> (Wonder if Kanri and Haru got back yet? If they're not at home, then they ought to be at the HOTEL. Might as well check.)
[21:47] *** Nelius Raoul [Overlord.Shura.CreativeChaos@Rasetsu.Coalition.nw] has left #suburbansenshi4 (To the HOTEL)

[17:20] <@Sailor Quinox> (( because in this case you're both just as stubborn in some respects and it didn't get far enough FOR punishment ))
[17:21] <@Sailor Quinox> (( now then... ))
[17:21] <@Sailor Quinox> (( as X said...yes no sells are very useful.... ))
[17:21] <@Sailor Quinox> (( however as he also said...you can only no sell so much..before it starts getting rediclious....and a tad..mean ))

[17:22] <@Sailor Quinox> (( I'm talking about both of you two ))
[17:22] <@Sailor Quinox> (( at most....if you're going to nosell ))
[17:22] <@Sailor Quinox> (( sell in a small way ))
[17:22] <@Sailor Quinox> (( or at least..adknowledge that they ALMOST got you ))
[17:22] <@Sailor Quinox> (( now in this case, lego was right eariler ))
[17:23] <@Sailor Quinox> (( if your character has that ability, checkmate ))
[17:23] <@Sailor Quinox> (( you should have mentioned it or at least alluded to it ))
[17:23] <@Sailor Quinox> (( otherwise to us..it looks simply like you were saying that you could no sell "just cuz" ))
[17:25] <@Sailor Quinox> (( now then ))
[17:25] <@Sailor Quinox> (( Lego ))
[17:25] <@Sailor Quinox> (( I get what you were going for... ))
[17:25] <@Sailor Quinox> (( I also undersatnd your frustration with checkmate ))
[17:25] <@Sailor Quinox> (( but at the same time....you started to make it personal in the box ))
[17:26] <@Sailor Quinox> (( which is a no go ))
[17:26] <@Sailor Quinox> (( that is not something to be seen in the public boxes ))
[17:27] <@Sailor Quinox> (( you nearly crossed a line there ))
[17:28] <Eitak_Razal> (( k... ))
[17:28] <@Sailor Quinox> (( even if you are frustrted..that's what ops are for ))
[17:29] <@Sailor Quinox> (( now checkmate ))
[17:29] <@Sailor Quinox> (( I get your frustration with lego ))
[17:30] <@Sailor Quinox> (( like lego though...you were starting to drag RL into the box..which again is no go..again..go to an op for it ))
[17:30] <@Sailor Quinox> /OOC so overall....
[17:30] <@Sailor Quinox> (( ^ ))
[17:32] <Eitak_Razal> (( I really don't appricate the the personl attacks ))
[17:32] <@Sailor Quinox> (( yes ))
[17:32] <Shadowdancer> (( Same here, Lego. ))
[17:32] <@Sailor Quinox> (( I don't want to see personal attacks against each other ))
[17:32] <@Sailor Quinox> (( and I mean BOTH of you ))
[17:33] <Eitak_Razal> (( No I mean I was getting swear words flung at me. I didn't get nearly that nasty ))
[17:33] <@Sailor Quinox> (( if I see this happening again ))
[17:33] <@Sailor Quinox> (( I don't care ))
[17:33] <Shadowdancer> (( You tried to kill my character, lego... ))
[17:33] <@Sailor Quinox> (( I don't care what the attacks were ))
[17:34] <@Sailor Quinox> (( I don't want to see it from either of you ))
[17:34] <Shadowdancer> (( at least stop fooling yourself into thinking you're completely innocent. ))
[17:34] <@Sailor Quinox> (( HEY ))
[17:35] <@Sailor Quinox> (( in this case ))
[17:35] <@Sailor Quinox> (( you are BOTH at fault ))
[17:36] <@Sailor Quinox> (( and you both have responsabilty for what happened ))
[17:36] <Eitak_Razal> (( Not kill ))
[17:37] <@Sailor Quinox> (( SS2 is not the place for such onflicts ))
[17:37] <Shadowdancer> (( What was the fireballs? ))
[17:37] <@Sailor Quinox> (( I m guessing, lego, you did tha tout of frustration ))
[17:38] <@Sailor Quinox> *that
[17:40] <@Sailor Quinox> (( My verdict is thus ))
[17:40] <Shadowdancer> (( Just wish you would have respected my wish to not get in a fight, that you know you wouldn't have allowed me to ever win, in the first place, before I felt the use of curse words were necessary to convey seriousness. ))
[17:41] <@Sailor Quinox> (( no sell is fine but sell once in awhile in answer to attacks ))
[17:41] <@Sailor Quinox> (( keep personal attacks OUT of SS2 ))
[17:43] <Eitak_Razal> (( Yes matt ))
[17:43] <@Sailor Quinox> (( if you have a problem come to n Op ))
[17:43] <@Sailor Quinox> (( do I mke myself clear? ))
[17:43] <Eitak_Razal> (( aye ))
[17:43] <Shadowdancer> (( Yeah. ))
[17:43] <@Sailor Quinox> (( good ))
[17:44] <@Sailor Quinox> (( now if you excuse me..I have to get offline ))
[17:44] <@Sailor Quinox> (( I will see you both later ))
[17:44] *** @Sailor Quinox has left #suburbansenshi4
[17:47] <Eitak_Razal> (( /unset ooc ))
[17:47] *** Eitak_Razal [Queen@Neggerra.gov] sets mode -ooc
[11:45] <@spiritflame> Current Location is: Nethervessel Drapnir
[11:45] *** The Nethervessel Drapnir flies through dimensional space, on its way to the next investigational point.
[11:46] <Delta-3361AF> ♦ ETA is five minutes.
[11:46] <Nelius Raoul> There's the next point. All hands, get ready.
[11:48] *** The attending people get into their assigned squads as the vessel approaches.
[11:50] * Nelius Raoul taps into something on his left arm, and takes his team down to the surface.
[11:50] <@spiritflame> Current Location is: Desolate World
[11:51] *** The team of demons, angels and humans beams onto a world that has seen better days.
[11:52] <Maverick> Man, what a miserable little dirtball.
[11:53] <Yui> It's as if all the life on this world just up and vanished..
[11:55] <Delta-3361AF> ♦ Scans are not showing any signs of life present within the vincinity. I cannot trace any signs of mechanical beings, either.
[11:56] *** The team splits into smaller groups and spreads out.
[11:59] <Maverick> I'm not finding anything.
[12:00] <Thorndyke> ....nothing present here either...
[12:02] <Delta-3361AF> ♦ Everyone, on guard! Seismic readings just spiked.
[12:02] *** True to Naoto's words, something begins shifting below the ground...
[12:03] *** A rotting hand pierces through the topsoil. Many more hands begin to follow....
[12:03] <Aliya> Undead?
[12:04] *** Indeed, multiple undead begin trying to unbury themselves, some having more success than others.
[12:04] <Aliya> Well, this explains where the life in the world went.
[12:05] <Undead> - Save..... s.... -
[12:06] <Undead> - Ple....ave..... young master.... -
[12:06] <Aliya> (Young Master?)
[12:08] <Undead> - Kruz.... forgive us.... -
[12:10] *** The undead then collapse into a pile, their last request still on the wind.
[12:11] <Undead> - Save our master, Kruz.... his heart..... -
[12:12] <Nelius Raoul> Hrm... if there were people here, they had to have had civilization somewhere. Naoto, you got eyes up above us---- can you find anything resembling a city or township?
[12:12] <Delta-3361AF> ♦ Scanning now...
[12:13] <Delta-3361AF> ♦ I have located something.... enhancing and sharpening image.
[12:15] <Delta-3361AF> ♦ Image complete. There appears to be a fortress to the southwest from your current position.
[12:15] <Nelius Raoul> All right, you heard her--- southwest it is.
[12:18] *** The team travels southwest, and sure enough, there's the fortress. Had it still be in one piece, it would've easily been three stories tall. There are multiple holes here and there, and 3/4 rotted corpses strewn about.
[12:20] * Aliya leads a few Celestians upward to serve as sentries and early scouts.
[12:22] <Aliya> Nothing but corpses...
[12:22] * Nelius Raoul enters the fortress with a team.
[12:23] *** The interior looks very well roughed up--- bloodstains, people impaled on the wall by what appears to be bone-spikes.
[12:23] * Nelius Raoul rummages around-- maybe there'll be a clue or something.
[12:25] <Senna> .....words.
[12:26] <Senna> A whole bunch of 'em.
[12:26] * Senna has found what appears to be a logbook.
[12:27] <Senna> ....different language. Can Naoto translate it?
[12:28] * Senna sends the logbook up to the ship.
[12:29] <Nazarus> ♦ I'll take over translating. Now let's see here....
[12:30] <Nazarus> ♦ Hrm, this is something different indeed. Get my codex and....
[12:31] * Nelius Raoul continues the search as Nazarus gets to work translating.
[12:32] *** Other than corpses, old armor and broken weapons, there's nothing of interest or value to be found here.
[12:33] <Nelius Raoul> Nothing left here. All right, everyone--- back to the ship.
[12:34] *** The command is given, and everyone beams back to Drapnir.
[12:34] <@spiritflame> Current Location is: Nethervessel Drapnir
[12:36] <Prinny> Welcome back, Master Raoul, dood.
[12:36] * Nelius Raoul nods to the Prinny. "How's Nazarus' translation coming along?"
[12:37] <Prinny> Last check, he has the basic gist of things, dood. A few more minutes ought to get the major bits ready.
[12:40] <Nazarus> All right--- here's what I found. The ink was faded on these, so I'm not wholly certain if I have the correct gist of things.
[12:41] <Entry> ♦ Today, Lady Isabella gave birth to a healthy boy. He's only a few minutes old, but I can tell he takes after his father.
[12:42] *** The Onmyo Mystic flips to the next page.
[12:43] <Entry> ♦ The young master has been bestowed with the name of Kruz, after the founding ancestor of our lands. It's with the highest hopes that he will forge a grand legacy when he comes of age.
[12:44] *** As the next few entries are mostly regarding daily activities, they are skipped.
[12:45] <Entry> ♦ I've been noticing the young master looking slightly pale in the morning. I'll be certain to give him a bigger breakfast to keep his energy up.
[12:47] *** Next entry.
[12:48] <Entry> ♦ I've been hearing the young master tossing and turning in his sleep, saying something about.... a prayer? I fear for his mental state.
[12:49] *** The next entry is somewhat haphazard--- the ink is not very well preserved.
[12:50] <Entry> ♦ It.... ster.... the likes of....een before.. claims to..... heart.. amity must awaken.
[12:52] <Nelius Raoul> (There's that bit about the heart again.)
[12:52] <Nazarus> .....boss?
[12:53] <Nelius Raoul> Just thinking on something.... this is the third time I've heard of something related to a "heart."
[12:54] <Nelius Raoul> ....I get the feeling that if there is anything else relevant to all this, we'll need to find this "Kruz" and ask him about what went down here.
[12:55] <Nazarus> I see. I'll store this log away for future reference.
[12:56] *** Nazarus has left #suburbansenshi4
[12:57] <Nelius Raoul> (More and more, that "heart" keeps cropping up.)
[12:57] *** Once everyone is accounted for, Drapnir turns and heads off.
[12:58] *** Nelius Raoul [Overlord.Shura.CreativeChaos@Rasetsu.Coalition.nw] has left #suburbansenshi4 ((A heart.... and something called Calamity. I think I'll need to talk with Priere on this one.))
[12:58] <@spiritflame> Current Location is: Null
[13:16] <@spiritflame> Current Location is: Academy City - Flora Park
[13:16] *** Euri Hakinochi [firstname.lastname@example.org] has joined #suburbansenshi4
[13:16] <@spiritflame> konnichiwa euri hakinochi
[13:17] * Euri Hakinochi makes her way down one of the paths that traverse through the park. She stops to crouch down and smell some of the beautiful flowers.
[13:17] <Euri Hakinochi> (Such a lovely scent. I don't believe I've seen these before. I should take Hachi here on a picnic sometime. I know she would love it.)
[13:18] * Euri Hakinochi smiles a small smile as she straightens and continues walking towards a small building on a small hill up ahead.
[13:18] *** Matsumi Kaze [AirGal@QTech.com] has joined #suburbansenshi4
[13:18] <@spiritflame> konnichiwa matsumi kaze
[13:18] * Matsumi Kaze streeeeaches!
[13:18] * Euri Hakinochi spots Matsumi up ahead already at the building.
[13:19] <Euri Hakinochi> Ara! Matsuuumiii!
[13:19] * Euri Hakinochi waves to her as she picks up her pace to get there.
[13:20] <Matsumi Kaze> oh euri!!!!
[13:20] * Matsumi Kaze waves!
[13:20] * Euri Hakinochi smiles broadly as she arrives and envelops Matsumi in a big hug.
[13:22] * Matsumi Kaze giggles and hugs euri back!
[13:22] <Euri Hakinochi> I'm sorry, did I keep you waiting long?
[13:23] <Matsumi Kaze> a little ^^..had some nice conversations though!
[13:24] <Euri Hakinochi> Oh?
[13:25] <Euri Hakinochi> Who with?
[13:25] <Matsumi Kaze> I don't know...some random students
[13:26] * Euri Hakinochi smiles.
[13:26] * Euri Hakinochi leads the way to the building. It's an empty building with stone walls and no doors. Around it are a variety of tables and benches.
[13:27] <Matsumi Kaze> heh I think most of them thought I go here
[13:27] <Euri Hakinochi> I like coming here. I don't know how old this place is or why it was left to stand here in this park, but I think its age is a beautiful counterpoint to the advancement of this city.
[13:27] * Euri Hakinochi chuckles softly.
[13:27] <Euri Hakinochi> It's a good thing you didn't wear your uniform, then.
[13:27] <Matsumi Kaze> heh I don't have to when I'm on break
[13:29] <Matsumi Kaze> how have things been??
[13:30] * Euri Hakinochi makes herself comfortable at one of the tables.
[13:30] <Euri Hakinochi> Things have been well.
[13:31] * Matsumi Kaze sits down and smiles
[13:31] <Euri Hakinochi> Nobu's having a wonderful time at his school. He's even on a field trip today to visit the Wind Power Plant we have here.
[13:31] <Matsumi Kaze> oh really? that's cool!
[13:31] <Euri Hakinochi> He's taken to his new life with his new family very well. I'm happy to call him my son.
[13:32] * Euri Hakinochi smiles fondly.
[13:32] <Euri Hakinochi> Hachiko-chan's doing well, too.
[13:32] <Euri Hakinochi> I don't get her see her as often, though.
[13:32] <Euri Hakinochi> She tells me she's making a lot friends at school and that they always spend time together.
[13:33] <Matsumi Kaze> do you miss hachi?
[13:33] <Euri Hakinochi> I think her bestfriend is this girl Kiya that she's mentioned a few times. She sounds like a nice girl.
[13:33] <Euri Hakinochi> I do.
[13:33] <Euri Hakinochi> very much so.
[13:33] <Euri Hakinochi> She's not even that far away, you know?
[13:33] <Euri Hakinochi> But it's not like I can just show up all the time to her dorm.
[13:34] <Euri Hakinochi> And so I try to busy myself with my own students.
[13:34] <Matsumi Kaze> LET'S VISIT HER
[13:35] <Euri Hakinochi> Now?
[13:35] <Euri Hakinochi> But she's in school!
[13:37] <Matsumi Kaze> huh..oh yeah I forgot
[13:37] <Matsumi Kaze> STILL....we should visit her at some point
[13:37] * Euri Hakinochi smiles.
[13:37] <Euri Hakinochi> I'd love to.
[13:38] * Euri Hakinochi gazes across the distance of the park.
[13:38] <Euri Hakinochi> The sakura trees should be blooming soon.
[13:38] <Matsumi Kaze> man I love sakura blossoms...
[13:39] <Euri Hakinochi> They're beautiful and yet their beauty is so fleeting.
[13:39] <Euri Hakinochi> Blink and you can miss them.
[13:39] * Euri Hakinochi looks a little sad.
[13:39] <Euri Hakinochi> Anyway, how have you been, Matsumi?
[13:40] <Matsumi Kaze> ok I guess....school has been alright.....
[13:40] <Matsumi Kaze> still working on repairing the theater
[13:40] * Euri Hakinochi looks troubled, like she has something on her mind.
[13:41] <Euri Hakinochi> I hope it gets repaired soon.
