  1. that said there are some games, that you might be able to join, you'd have to PM the people running them. Weirder Stuff and Scion Modern Mythology are still going.
  2. Well with Lilly's Departure, Coach Meyers is somewhat concerned, and starts to lean heavily on Cade to join the football team. With a changing dynamic in his life, he decides to give it a shot. He'd join, and quickly end up taking over as quarterback. This would at least start to grow Cade's confidence as a leader, maybe help him actually become a good one. Cade's still game to invite everyone for a fishing trip/fishfry/barbecue at the Pond, not a training thing, but more just a relaxing get-together. Good food, good friends, and outdoor fun. Cade would like to actually see the Smilodon again, both to make sure it's being treated well, and to work with it, because let's face it, he's probably the only one who's got a shot at doing so. Cade is concerned with what he can actually do in the coming fight. Currently his means are purely mundane, and he's worried about that being effective, so he'll want to try to push himself and up his game "Curve the Bullet" stuff maybe.. I want Cade to actually become aware of Dramatic Editing and his ability to do it, at current he's ignorant of it. It could come off that he's always been lucky, things go the way he wants them to more often than not, and he learns that he's actually making his own luck. Cade still needs to actually ask Marissa to homecoming. Probably something that will happen in the current phase of the thread. I see Cade spending a fair amount of time with Marissa, enough that she learns he's into anime and manga. I foresee the Bag of Horrors making an appearance, so that now they both know the dark secrets of each other.
  3. Thursday Night After talking with Sean, Cade had gone home and hidden the rifle. Only Haruka and his mother were home. He sighed, not caring about where his father was now, and pulled out his phone. It was nearly ten, late but he knew the person he wanted to talk to was still up. He couldn't recall having called Devin before, and wasn't all that surprised when it went to voicemail so he left a simple message. "Hey Devin, it's Cade. I'd like to talk about some things. I'm heading to Bunnies, and I'm buying if you'd like to meet me there. " With that he head to Bunnies, and went and sat in the booth the Fellowship normally sat in, made his order and waited. He had a feeling Devin would come, possibly thinking this was about Marissa. He wasn't planning on discussing her at all really, he had other reasons for this, but as an older brother himself, he knew he'd give the speech to any boy she ever brought home. He sighed, waiting for either Devin to show up, or his food to arrive, wondering which would first. It was strange, in as much as he really did expect Devin to show.
  4. Thursday Night 7pm After revealing he had indeed managed to somehow keep hold of the rifle he took from the prison, later on Sean had revealed an interest in it. It was after school, nearly seven at night, as Cade had had to take care of some work before he could head over to Sean's. The rifle and clips were folded up in his backpack, and he smiled as he pulled up at Sean's. He quietly made his way to the barn, where he'd agreed to meet up with Sean, and chuckled. "Anyone else, they'd probably wonder just what the hell's going on." He knocked on the door, and waited. He knew enough about firearms being a hunter, but this was so far beyond simple rifles and shotguns, he hadn't really felt too comfortable doing much with it, It would be better to have Sean look at it, and then maybe figure out just what all the weapon, and perhaps the ammunition could do. "Hey Sean, it's Cade, you home?" In his other hand he had two pizzas, a meatlovers for himself, and one with pepperoni, bacon, green olives, and mushrooms for Sean.
  5. Cade Allister Cade is on steroids, how else could he have set the records he set in track practice? Cade is the latest victim of the Terror Twins, the Jauntsens. Their debauchery has claimed one of the last innocent souls in Shelly High. Cade is dating Marissa to make Lilly Pryor Jealous. All the squirrels in the area are slave to Cade's will. Cade's actually a genius, he just chooses to only apply himself to sports to give everyone else a chance. Dating women is a sham, Cade is secretly in a forbidden relationship with Mr. Bancroft. The Allister family has "A Past" Mr. Bancroft is a criminal mastermind, living off his last big score. Hiring the son of the sheriff is just ironic camoflage. Ian Allister isn't Cade's real dad. Cade's mother learned something she shouldn't have, this is why she died. Cade's actually a superpowered alien hiding his power in a small Montana town. Cade hired the guys who beat Liam Day
  6. I was planning on Cade doing some fishing, first by himself, then he'd invite the Fellowship to come along after having a really good trip. He's fine with being told no, but it is somewhere they're basically alone, free to be themselves. It's good to do something simple together in his mind, without having to worry about everything else going. For Labor Day, The Allister family will have a big cookout, and Cade would extend the invitation to any of the Fellowship who don't have plans with their family to come over for some good food.
  7. What should have been easily dodged attacks were not, as Chaos was trying to focus on defending against Therion and Ryan. In a moment of hesitation, he was struck by both of Yuuki's attacks, which bound him in vines, letting both Ryan and Therion strike him, the former hitting four times. It was impressive, and any lesser foe would have been blown away and sliced to ribbons. It didn't go that way though. unleashing a blast of magic in a sphere around him, Chaos blew away the vines binding him, sent Therion and Ryan flying, the latter blasted into a tree which splintered into veritable toothpicks afterwards. Ryan was coughing up blood, having not been hit that hard in some time.. "Perhaps I cannot kill you directly with spells, sworddancer, but there's always more than one way to get somebody." Chaos seemed so utterly smug and self-assured with having blasted away the two primary threats. It was then that Vesper chose to unleash her unique power, a blast at the very mind of Chaos itself. She could feel her energy replenish, and Chaos screamed as the shadow creatures faltered momentarily in their battle against the elementals.
  8. Cade's availability Game, Friday- Vignette at the game post-game- likely celebrating at bunnee's with everyone. Saturday morning- Working of Mr. Bannson Saturday Afternoon- free, up for anything Saturday Night- free, up for anything Sunday morning- work for Bannson, Church Sunday Afternoon- Free for anything Sunday night- family movie night maybe.
  9. With Yuuki summoning a dozen earth Elementals to her side, The fight was becoming abit more even, as they began to wrestle with the summoned Chaos beasts. They were fairly equivalent in power, and Vesper still found it quite difficult to try to wrest control of the chaos beasts. Chaos chuckled at the attempt, though his glowing eyes seemed to take an angered glow. "How would you like it if I took your pet from you. All it would take is a simple touch." Just as Therion swung down, Chaos used his other hand to bring up his sword, blocking the blow, but the awkwardness of the defense was enough to prevent him from stapping Therion with it, as the spirit backed away slightly. That flaming hand disgorged a torrent of flame which Ryan intercepted, bisecting the blast with his sword, Laevatein. The defense left the sword glowing. "Enhanced Hellfire. That was always so much fun to deal with." he grumbled as he swung, and found his own strike parried by the sword. "Enchanted sword too. It defends its master." Chaos sat there looking at him. "I see you're very observant, and a veteran fighter. Die." with that a pillar of red flame engulfed Ryan." When there was no scream, Chaos sighed. "i'd hoped for more from him." The bamboo shielding him was gone now, but he stood unscathed, and smiling. "Oh you'll get more, not just from me, but from all of us." Tori was still busy with the rushed repairs to the banshee, hoping to get it in the air to help handle the chaos beasts.
  10. "Lady Rika is not in in any way. She is unaligned, which is a benefit and burden. There are many who could be of benefit to know, but nothing that's going to show that much interest in someone so inexperienced as Rika. That said the nature of her servants is different too. Others are figures of myth and legend. You three, are not." Ryan snorted "Of course." he looked to Elias. "it was just for me, not for anyone else. it was a real pain for my magic using allies, but it did come in real handy." He smiled "So we're alone. That's fine we can keep our heads down and see who comes sniffing around. We make a plan to work together to show them why we merit respect."
  11. Mega Girl's attack actually cracked the armor of the minotaur, succeeding in knocking it flat on't back with a resounding crash, smashing several teeth. Starsign's blast skewers the hydra's torso like a luminous drill, actually severing a head at the root, which cause it to scream out in pain, and before it could do more, Columbian moved in and finally broke the creature's left leg leaving it on its belly. Elastica tore into the Kraken, and found it's skin to be pliant like hers, but nowhere close to as durable. The Astovik sisters continued their own battles, with Autumn trying to freeze the minotaur to the ground, as Summer blasted the hydra burning off the leg that Columbian had broken. Starsign yelled at Columbian "Finish it off Columbian!" and Leaps to Maga-girl placing a hand on her should and filling her with health, even the damage to her cybernetics starting to mend thanks to the Cosmic nature of Starsign's healing power. "Thanks, SS," Alison replied, shooting off to try and finish the job on the monotaur, but despite its massive size the minotaur reacted fast, dodging the powerful metahuman's aerial punch by sitting up. Elastica was busy sinking her claws deeply into the Kraken, drawing a loud keening wail from the beast, but it still had plenty of fight left. Hex, rising to her feet quickly reestablished her defensive barrier, surprised that something could even knock it down to begin with, but undettered, as she launched a firebolt at the hydra. The minotaur rises to it's feet, shattering the ice binding it with it's vastly enhanced muscles,, even as it backhands Autumn, sending her flying away from it, knocked unconscious. Summer succeeds in fireblasting another head from the Hydra, before her sister is sent sprawling and rendered unconscious. Before Columbian can Finish off the Hydra it manages to bite him with two heads in a lightning quick double strike, dropping him to the ground with a scream as his wounds hiss and burn. Psypher is still locked in mental combat with the Kraken, blood now flowing from his ears and nose under his costume, but he was still upright and fighting. The tentacles of the Kraken had wrapped around Elastica, but failed to do any damage, though it was surprisingly strong. "Oh no you don't. If you're hitting anyone, that's me." Mega girl growls, booming at the robot after her missed strike, anger at herself burning in her blood. Mega-girl's attack was truly one of vengeance, as it literally blew out the back of the minotaur's head in an explosion of metal and soft tissue, causing it to fall to the ground, defeated. Elastica's cut deep into the space squid, cutting rugged slashes in the tapestry engulfing. It entangled the tigrish Elastica in its tentacles, but almost like thick water, she oozed out of the grapple. "You cannot stop me," she said in a chipper growl, "And you are strong, but not as strong as me. You will not resist me." The tentacles couldn't stop her, but they might stop her allies. Elastica reached for the base of one tentacle, claws digging deep into its pliant, rubbery flesh, and feet braced against the Stellar Kraken's bulk, she began to pull and tear. Starsign spins at Columbian's scream and rushes back to kneel between him and the hydra one hand touch letting her power flow into him healing the damage from the bites as much as possible, but the poison was another matter entirely. Summer, enraged over the injury to her sister, cut loose with a torrent of flame that seared off another head from the hydra, though one of the remaining two bit deeply into her sending poison coursing through her leaving two hissing wounds and intense burning pain. Hex once again cut loose with a powerful eldricth fireball at the hydra, more than a little happy when it connected. The blast incenerated the second to last head which caused the it to scream in pain. The combined assault of Psypher attacking mentally, and elastica physically starting to rip it apart was enough to bring down the Kraken, which landed wetly on the ground, it's tentacles going limp, and it's body simply laying there, ripped open by Elastica. Unceremoniously, Psypher fell backwards, unconscious, but victorious along with his comrade. Starsign moved to heal Columbian further, channeling more of her power into him, but the damage from the poison wasn't something she could stop, though she was keeping it from killing him. Elastica moved to pounce on the Hydra but didn't quite judge the distance right, overshooting, striking only the air and the ground with her fearsome claws. In an Ironic coincidence, MegaGirl came at the hydra from above but also misjudged, likely thanks to being covered in gore from the minotaur, hitting to the other side of it. Hex however was still there, and before anyone else could be harmed, she unleashed a final fireblast, removing the last head, and moments later the rest of the hydra, along with the remains of the other two felled creatures turned to ash and dissipated on unseen winds. In the quiet aftemath, a pillar of blue-white Arclight appeared. Within the pillar was a pedastal with a single red button and a timer that was counting down, with less than an hour remaining. Above it a full body projection of their foe stood, and clapped his hands once. "Very well done heroes, though having three of you unable to continue would normally be horrible, it's a good first effort. I am a man of my word. You have beaten my challenge, and by simply pressing the button, you will release a Counteracting wave that will spare the inhabitants of the city. Until next time brave heroes." with a flourish of his cape, the projection vanished into motes of light, leaving the question of who he was, and if this would really save the city. The issue of questionable time passage was forgotten for now as MG went to check on Autumn. Airway. Breathing. Circulation. Don't move the victim if, say, they got smacked around by a giant robot and might have spinal injuries. Triessa goes to check on her unconscious comrades checking in with the other person who could heal. "How are they doing?" she asks Starsign. Elastica flowed back into her Barbie-esque form, once more wearing a figure-hugging, dark blue bodysuit (or was it just her skin with a different texture?). She joined the others by their fallen comrades. Blank expression shifted into one of concern. She didn't really know how humans fixed themselves other than a vague sense picked up from her once owner. It seemed to involved a lot of laying down or sometimes bedroom athletics with a man. "We might need tot get them to a hospital but we need to shut this down and let the authorities in." came Starsign's reply, followed by Elastica's offer of aid. "Can I help?" Summer knelt by her unconscious sister, as the two male teammates were brought there, as the healers tended the three of them. Triessa stopped to prepare her magic for a curative spell that would remove the poison, knowing they couldn't keep just healing them forever. idly she said quietly "Someone hit that button," she says as she hunkers down to begin. "We need to wrap this up." MegaGirl relinquished her place by Autumn's side soon as Summer arrived, moving to hover next to the proverbial Big Red Button, "So. I'm willing to risk getting zapped pushing the button if no one else has a problem with it." Triessa nods at Mega Girl. "Don't worry. If somethig happens, we've got the tools to keep you alive." With that, MegaGirl hit the button. With the press of the button, the countdown stops, and the pedastal recedes into the floor. A red pulse expands outwards bathing the building, and then the entire city, with no ill effect aside a light tingling sensation. The group of heroes found themselves in the grand lobby before the doors they came in, their comrades gathered there on the floor. Working together they carry them out and no sooner than the door closed, than the entire building began to dissolve into motes of white light, leaving them standing there standing before nothing more than a massive foundation, and before thousands who'd been watching in the square. Their faces were plastered on the screens for a moment longer, and with the roaring cheer of the crowd, the screens went dark. They'd won, the city was safe, for now.
  12. Rika just stared at the other four people, and shook her head. "This can't be real." Ryan sighed, and an actual portal into another world appeared. He reached within and drew forth a sword, and looked at her. "It is Rika. it sucks that you didn't have a choice, and neither did we. Our very best option is to survive and fight to the end so you can have your life back, and we can gone home." "As for us sticking together, I'd suggest Aoi here, partner with Rika, as one of us will not be able to go to some places the same way. Beyond that, I'm betting she can use a Master's crest to summon us to her from anywhere." Lucian nodded. "Yes, and it doesn't even use a crest, it's a simple privelage." Ryan nodded. "Okay, at least that means she can call on us as she needs to then." Lucian nodded. "The ten clans are as I said ten families of magi who have always lived here in Japan. They tend to specialize in their magics but the most powerful use several variety of magic. To become a member, Rika would have to prove blood ties to one of the 10 Clans, marry a member of one of the families, or in special circumstances, be adopted into one of the families." "What would that entail?" "Defeating a large magical threat, and have a member in good standing vouch for you to the family head. They would then decide if you merited admittance, and where in the heirarchy you'd fit."
  13. Ryan sighed. "How the hell did you even get this to work on me?" Lucian just smiled. "You were much more powerful, and with that unique power, Mr. Cross, you'd have been the most powerful Servant ever. I'm not privy as to how it was done, but your special power has been lessened. Since you've been sent and summoned before, it allowed you to be summoned here, though it has placed some limitations on your power." Ryan nodded, but looked annoyed. "I guess it would." He looked to the others. "Before coming here, i'd developed a particular power that rendered me utterly impervious to magical effects. In a war focused on magical combat, I would be virtually unstoppable. I don't have that immunity anymore though, which will take some adjustment time for me." He looked to Elias. "A friendly spar later would be welcome, to see just how far that immunity was reduced, if you don't mind." Lucian nodded. "I have put in the customary three days grace period, starting from the moment she formally contracted all three of you. No one will attack you, or interfere within that timeframe, though after that, well A non-initiated neophyte who managed to contract three powerful Servants all at once isn't something many will ignore." He looked to Anne, and smiled. "There are three great factions, The Helost Collective, which is mostly based in Europe, focusing on true magic as you would think of it. They have the greatest numbers, and most overall power. The Alaran Alliance, Based in the Americas. Their leader is the third most powerful mage alive, Arthur Dendan. He specializes in Cognitive and lightning magic. The final Faction is the smallest of the three, The Ten Clans. They are ten hereditary mage families here in Asia, based out of Tokyo. you are in the heart of their territory, but they're mostly hands-off, so long as public order is undisturbed. The two most powerful magi are Arnhem Bauer, and Chigusa Manami, and they hold to no affiliation or faction, fighting alone, with a dozen Servants each." Lucian looked at them and sighed. "Honestly, there are more factions, dozens really but most have less than ten members, and barely qualify for the Registry. More than that, there are more unaffiliated Magi than not. Thanks to one of the Primal laws, Magi cannot be compelled by magic to join a faction, but there is something to be said for strength in numbers. Still such strength and security is not without cost, as the factions expect their members obedience and fealty."
  14. Rika was somewhat alarmed when two other students showed up, Ryan was still down, though he was awake and whatever that weird pulse was, she didn't have a clue. As soon as Elias came in, he was in pain, and she made to steady him, and accidentally brushed against Aoi as well. and the pulse rippled out again, which sent them both down like Ryan, in debilitating pain, and Rika herself began to glow. "What's going on?" Soon it was over, and instantly the pain was gone. On the back of her left hand were a trio of marks, a stylized cross, a sword, and a starburst. They shown with a near rainbow-like of light, and then faded. The pain vanished instantly and Ryan opened his eyes. "Holy hell you're a mage." Rika looked at him and cocked her head "What are you talking about? I'm just a student, and magic is not real.." "That isn't true, Miss Ajima. Magic is very real, and now that you have claimed your Servants, you are now involved in the Great War. Mages in this world have fought via proxy Servants for all of humanity's history, and you are a part of it." There was a man in the the doorway of the alcove, that now stood there when he'd been nowhere close before. He had light grey hair but looked somewhat young, with steel-grey eyes. "I am your Observer, Lucian. I will chronicle your battles, and while I cannot directly interfere, I am permitted to tell you the general history of the War, and the factions within. Ryan held up his hand, which was marked with the sword crest, though it had more parts and layers. "Master Seal?" Lucian nodded. "Affirmative. She may command you 3 times to do anything, or use her crest to restore you without fail. A master without crests is no longer a master, so Miss Ajima use them sparingly, as you could still be a target, even without Servants now." "I don't want to fight." She said quietly. "I detest violence of any kind. I just won't do it." Lucian shook his head. "Then you will die. That is the nature of the Great War for Magi. You fight, or die. Victory, or death. There are some Magi who've been in the war for centuries now. Their servants are powerful beyond words. Still it is not all doom and gloom. It is a rule that Elder Magi may not attack neophytes unless they're attacked first. More than that. The number of servants that can be used in a formal duel of Magi is the choice of the younger Mage."
  15. For Ryan Church, who came from a world like this initially, it was just one more reminder that he wasn't home. He'd finally made it back, but now, here he was again, in another world, though this time he had no clue how he was to get back, only some vague sense guiding him here. He was at school, heading to the library. His history teacher had assigned a project, and since he didn't know this world's history, he knew he needed to learn more. As he entered he began to have a headache, and the strange force told him he needed to continue. He made his way to the history section next to the Literature section and fought through the pain to peruse and find a concise account of Oda Nobunaga, the focus of the project he'd chosen. As he was going to the small alcove with chairs and a table, he noticed a young woman already there. She was reading already, and he shrugged. sitting by someone wasn't liable to be an issue, so he quietly made his way to a chair there, and took a seat to start reading. As he cracked open the book, she looked up and smiled. "That's a good one you know. They only used established facts about him, and his life." Her voice resonated with him, and the sense seemed to go haywire. his head was pounding like a drum now, and unfortunately for him, his legs gave out. He fell over into the chair and Rika let out an alarmed cry. She quickly moved to help him up, and when she touched him they both felt a pulse ripple out through reality. Elsewhere, Aoi and Elias Felt the ripple in reality and knew something was up. More than that, they knew they had to get to the school library, immediately.
  16. I have not forgotten this game, simply put things on hold. Saturday 8-31 at 6pm EST we will get together in the IC discord chat and finish this fight then
  17. For Anne Mistral, life was largely hell. Coming from a world of incredible technology, This world was boring, banal, and mundane. Topping it off she was young, which meant she had to be in school, and she was stuck here, at least that's what she'd thought. She knew of Keys, Gates and how they worked, and among all the abilities she'd gained, one was to sense when a key near. This was useful and had lead her to Tokyo Jindai High School. For Eilos Apollon It was somewhat different. Having come from a world of myth and magic, he was in a strange world with no real common ground, aside from the existence of magic. Using his own mystical power, he'd forged himself a quiet life as a student, a residual effect of being summoned here. With no way to go home, he settled in, only to be guided by a mystical force to Tokyo Jindai high school. Here he knew there was someone who could help him go home. Ryan Church was a survivor. Having lived the last six years of his life across half a dozen worlds, he was only slightly irked at being summoned to this one. It was always like this, the summoning, always in the middle of things with damn little information to go on. He quickly found that he'd been provided a life as was normal when summoned, something he never really got, but went with it. The now eighteen year old man letting out a grunt of annoyance when he saw he was once again a highschool student. "Dammit, just once, I'd rather not have to go to some sort of school. Still he knew that the way to move on was there at the school, that was how this always worked, so he set about preparing himself. That was a month ago. In that time the Trio of "students" had taken to attending classes, all the while searching out their ticket home. It was only natural that the three of them found each other, as they did all stand out in their own way. After that they began to work together, hunting for who or whatever it was that would let them go back home. In the Library, Rika Ajima sat doing what she loved most, reading. As the president of the Literature club, she thought the written word the turning point of mankind's history. She studied extensively, and was ranked among the top students at the entire school. Her Literature club however was among the smallest clubs, and in danger of being shut down. More than that as of late she'd had some strange pains, and visions of other worlds, like dreams, but they were impossibly vivid. Something within her lurked, coiled tightly, but it shifted ever so slightly, and the words she read as she began her newest book seemed to resonate with her. "Our Story begins...."
  18. OOC questions/comments go here
  19. More waves of chaos beasts came through, exhausting the Grand Imperial Army, Even the use of the now 3 Great Crests was only just enough to survive the final waves. Tori and the Banshee were completely down, unable to continue fighting due to immense damage. Indeed, Izona, her own magical reserves nearly depleted, was tending to her in the castle, as Thunder rumbled across the sky. What descended from the sky looked like a man with a jet black cape and impeccable attire one might expect of a noble. When his feet touched the ground, he opened his eyes, and fifteen thousand soldiers died insantly. His eyes were solid black rimmed with glowing red energy, and he carried a sword in one hand, a wicked looking saber of incredible quality. With little choice, Yuuki, Ryan, and Vesper were called to battle him, as normal troops perished. Ryan frowned, as he drew his primary sword, Laevatein, and looked to his comrades. "This has got to be Chaos itself" True enough due to learning magic, the pair could feel a sort of connection, Vesper in particular. Ryan was absolutely right, and a deep rumbling voice answered. "I will not allow them to create that accursed crest, and you outsiders will not stop me." black flames wreathed Chaos' left hand, as he walked toward them, and Ryan scowled. "He's got no openings at all."
