Everywhere Else / Re: Hunt for the Howling Storm {CLOSED}

...For one moment Infrared thought it actually worked. Nevermind. What she got instead is dropping the number of threats from two bosses to a boss in mook's clothing. Let's hope it's not from a Princess Taijitu to a Re- class- oh wait both of them are just fan-created expansions- Beringel. And it's also probably to no credit of hers, which kind of hits a little at her oft-boasted savviness. At least the odds are now not definitely overwhelming now. That was definitely an unwinnable situation especially if the 1v1s were to be secured against us. This seems much easier.

Mooks would be easy, one activation of the semblance per mook should do it. But she doesn't want to expose her dangerous not-forbidden technique since she already got a plan, thus having a good reason to not open with her strongest move first. Noting her previously spotted ceiling of rocks she moved towards the original entrance where he and Akel are. This is so cool and would work so well she just had to execute it. There's an unattended bag, let's start with this one. The sooner she got back her charges the faster she can reinforce Solar and the earlier it happens the more damage she can inflict.

Sheer poked his head out of the train and is immediately confronted by the howling wind and then a batch of Nevermores. Sheer points his gun at them before being pelted in the face by a piece of leaf which reminded him to climb out completely.

Standing up Sheer stumbled a bit which makes him wonder just how can so much of the Grimm land on top before noticing the scratch marks on the top of the train and answered this question.

Um, Nevermore, you're dumb, don't you know piercing attacks are super effective against soft targets? Well they don't because they're young. And now they don't get to because they're getting blasted out of the sky. What Sheer didn't notice, however, is that in the time he took to get up, aim and fire at the incoming group of nevermore the rest of them is already dealing with many more Grimm than he is and getting more things done.

So much for snacks. With a bit of guesswork, Sheer responded with his own assessment.
"I'm not sure which is the bigger threat, the Major or the dozen Beowolves aiming for the Dust. I'd suggest an even split instead. Sweep them out in short order then focus on the Ursa. Sound's good? I volunteer for the Ursa." He had the firepower to take it out and should be able to utilize his semblance more effectively. Who knows, we should just try blasting it and if anything fails, he could just watch his seniors show off their superiority.

With that in mind Sheer climbed up and out of the hatch following whoever else.

Sheer was looking out the window when they started introducing to each other. Turning his head to face his partners for this mission, well technically his senior but he's sure they won't mind, and guess it's his turn to introduce himself so "I'm Sheer and one year junior of you at second year! Aren't the view outside breathtaking? It'd be a shame if something happened to it... eh unironically! So maybe no news is good news?" The view outside is nice but a chat is more interesting even if it's just small talk, so he now turns his attention full among themselves and reached forward. "Vivian is it? Can you help me with that tray?"

Infrared stares at the presumed mercenary talking her into stopping. He knows my name. (Pre-)Atlas Officer confirmed? Well proceed as it were anyway. Trying to keep her composure and act as if her name hasn't been mentioned she counter-offers.

"Why don't you stop fighting instead," She softens her voice in fear of being heard, "There's more we can offer than they do no? Lien and dust, can't imagine them offering nearly close to what's worth here if they make the treasure cache such a big deal that they didn't give it up while being all compromising? They only skimmed over it when you're coming in, but really they just wanted to coax you out of the BIG profit we have on hand. Surely you won't care about what happens to us or the humans, but just think of the Lien. This is just business -- surely you'd rather be on the profitable side here, hm?" Making a few glaring assertions that would make people frown on second thoughts, but getting him to emotionally agree is the priority here.

The falling bag was semi-ignored by Infrared using her semblance to launch it straight up, making a small mmm as it made contact. But the sound the bag makes is distinctly different from the one she craves to hear so she just caught the bag after one flight of the it. Wearing it over her chest she puts Action back into its scabbard and backed away slowly with her hands raised and eyes looking around still for spots with somewhat loose rocks. "You get a share of the entire pile, plus a quarter of mine. Deal?"

When Infrared missed her charge she she ran straight past, not wanting to slow down one bit to get herself aimed at, not paying attention if Solar is getting her correctly and unknowingly escaping a plunge.
She gave a command trying to make her plan work. It had to work.
Check the bag! Then throw it left and off! That should convey it fully. As she gave this she turned and jumped off the starboard of Howling storm, facing away from the flash that presumably was set off by one of them.
When she reached the ground she used her semblance twice in quick succession to sneak her way to the port side of the ship waiting for the bag to drop down. She'd be lying if her foot doesn't hurt like stepping on a toy brick, but that's necessary lest she'd be intercepted trivially.
Trying to minimize the chance of being spotted as well as setting up an ambush she stuck near the surface of the ship. There are many things she need to be paying attention to now: searching for a viable cave ceiling, waiting for Solar and/or her bag, and trying to sneak up on the bird Faunus. There's something else, oh right the bag- she's leaning on it and she didn't even feel it. This means it's empty. it also means there's nothing she can use in it.

This should be a small breather if they lost her. She tries to think up something but all the things she already have to process prevents her from generating any new thoughts. For now she activates her dust in Action. A cold breeze tells her what she put in earlier which she've long forgotten by now.

WiP Characters / Re: Siu Ceong

Now before anyone asks that is not my real name. More work when I wake up.

WiP Characters / Siu Ceong (Not finished but WIP regardless)
« on: February 16, 2018, 12:21:36 PM »

Name: Siu Ceong (In that order, but her surname is Siu)

Age: 21, born 59 AC Saule 28th

Species and Gender: Female Human

Symbol: A golden dragon in a background of sky and sea.
Spoiler: show

Occupation: Beacon graduate Huntress

Appearance: Siu mostly sports her favorite outfit in day-to-day activities and sparring: Silk robe with big, long sleeves which extends to her knees with red lining over a usual shirt usually with white or red as primary color, along with a lime green skirt and stocking up to the middle of her thigh with 5 cm in between and a flat shoe.
In the fields, if practicality was demanded, she dons a much simpler wear in the form of a plain navy colored tunic with cuffed sleeves and a belt and several pouches, similar to that of a nomadic horse archer, instead of the robe, skirt and stocking, and a pair of sneakers instead of shoes.
In both normal, school uniform and field if possible she wears a headset that both act as a wireless headphone and a transmit-receiver aid for her semblance. She has a mild case of myopia which translates to a pair of glasses normally and adjusted goggles in the field.

With a fairly unnotable height of 165 cm and weight of 63 kg, she has an average body with an undeniable but unnoticeable body curve. Her Skin is approximately yellow and has a mostly round face with a notably big grey eye.

History: Siuís father is an archeologist working in a site near his village, one just outside Vale close enough such that they can mobilize a team on an airship to help in time when occasionally the hired huntsman canít stop them before they start damaging the village. Her mother, a researcher in an Atlas-Vale exchange program on the Atlesian side, met him on a conference about newly recovered items from his site. When they married she moved there and set up a station for first-hand process and analysis after any discoveries. When she was pregnant with Siu, they had a rather large discovery with a multitude of excavated texts and artwork. They turn out to be teaching material including a pictured dictionary and textbooks of mathematics and history. With their initial deciphered texts she was named Ceong, which was believed to mean Ďsoarí. The initial discovery gained some attention in the field, but they felt more. They don't know what it is but they feel it hinted at something more. Maybe there are connections. This quickly became the goal of the couple, to find and tell the full story of these artifacts.

Thus it was under an atmosphere of exploration and analysis of the past that Siu was raised. Looking at her parents work and asking them questions quickly became her favorite pastime. When one day she asks what are they doing archaeology for she got this:
We archaeologist excavates for learning the past both by itself and from which, discovering exotic knowledge to our and the public's fascination, but most in importantly doing them justice. People don't die when they're killed, it's when they're forgotten. In doing our work, if we can't immortalize them, we at least stave them off against the threat of time for as long as we could.
In a fit of fridge logic, Siu proclaimed "If dad and mom work to discover and protect the past, I'll be a huntress to do the same to the present!"
They're taken aback by her unusually quick thinking for her age and a sudden set of life goal, but they didn't outright oppose it, trying to show instead of tell and letting her form her opinion herself.
They told tales, shown footages and media depictions of huntsmen operating at their full glory... and horror. Choosing the most realistic portrayals possible, the little girl is exposed to moments alternating between the likes of a huntsman singlehandedly wipes out 100 Beowolves and an utterly exhausted one getting mauled in half by an Ursa Major, picking off a horde of Creeps from 300 meters after the sniper witnessed her best friend being overrun and slowly chomped to his death with a scream almost audible from that distance, equally gory and glory with nothing but the most needlessly gory scenes hidden from her. She had expectedly as much fangirling as shivering but forced herself to watch because she would need to accept all of it if she were to genuinely choose and stay on the path of a huntress. After much longer than she initially thought she reaffirmed herself that she wanted to become a huntress and enrolled in Signal.

In Signal unlike some others who needed time to find their calling she immediately chose to drill her marksmanship, as a result of being scared of fighting closely from watching scary footages. Either hit-and-run or run and gun did her well, but she knew had a feeling that she couldn't keep doing that forever. She's right.

On one mission of simple extermination they were doing as well as usual until a particularly large horde came and she fell back more than usual to fire. While they slaughtered them as just before without issue, they argued if her backing would be appropriate in terms of mentality and effect which lured an Ursa Major to them. Not in effective range of attacking it, she can only watch her teammates put up a fight until their Aura broke while she is frantically running to them, but it takes one more good hit to finish it off. When the supervising professor moved in for the finishing blow he saw instead two toy planes crashing into the Grimm and killing it in a pretty firework show.

The same thing that have clicked in Akel's mind have clicked in hers. He handed documents to all of us didn't he? I was literally just checking those...
Infrared glanced at Akel's gesture, then at the bullhead, then at Akel again, and almost moved her hand towards Reaction, but vetoed the suggestion as it is in her mind. It would most probably be shot down if she aimed at the ship at all, then she's out and need 10 entire seconds to reload which she don't have when facing two opponents presumably at least on her caliber.
Not yet.
Infrared moved into right in between Solar and bag and the still standing sword wielder, taking a deep breath, looking around the surroundings and gesturing to Solar with a sign of flinging, she launched the first attack of the encounter with a straight charge-plunge with left hand drawing Action, the creak puntating her heartbeat and the stress of the deck resonating with her stress in her mind.

(OOC: Using the tournament system for this fight. Also she gets to fight with a theme for the first time!)

Infrared is more than concerned about Quisling's choice of words in the reveal. She tried to probe more intel of their identity and the nature of the hologram but the last thing she wanted to confirm rendered that nil. This is bad.
It's the Fang...
Given the history of the crown, this could only mean...
Nonono that is bad...
What do I do... There are 2 obvious choices, need to find that third option... I didn't... not for this...
She is still frozen in thought as she witnessed Akel attempt to withdraw Cordell from the scene. Then Solar made a move and she had to act.
Knowing full well the consequences of the worst case scenario with this choice, she used the force of the pull to turn around, detached the backpack on the far side and reached into it, took out the Med-Aid kit and activitate as many mining charges as she can, then threw the backpack to Solar in a guess of her intent and made sure the the remote is thrown in a way that is obvious to her but not exposed as a form of suggesting a booby trap. Then glancing at the two threats yield important information: The sniper looks Altesian with no Faunus traits, so probably not a Fang and can potentially be bought off. So just one of them needs to be neutralized, and a sniper wouldn't pose that much threat to her anyways.
The next thing is to see how Rust reacts. Would be a good time to be able to get flung.

Space Cruise is chosen for being calm enough for Cat's calm self.
Battle for Supremacy has the tension in the same way Cat fights with semblance. If he's sniping it would be silent with Dogsong on hit.
The way the bone protrudes and sans' arm slamming in his fight fits too much not to put Megalovania. I could put Do You Believe In Destiny instead but feels like cheating.
The hollowness of Conturbatio was chosen over other music from PMMM but more importantly the themes the show deal with is exactly the kind Catalina would think deeply about.
Undyne before you befriend her is exactly who Cat isn't, so Spear of Justice is deliberately used. The spear throwing chase from earlier also remotely resemble Cat's semblance.

We Keep Going features both the feels and the title.
A normal, fast-paced battle with Infrared would involve a lot of bullet deflects from both her sword and her semblance. Just watch Homura vs Mami and Absolute Configuration is a best fit.
Scale up Mami's gunshots to rocket artillery explosions makes Credens Justitiam a beautiful background music.
The Slow Walk and Battle of Lepanto both starts slow that gets epic. And the historic outcome makes her Crowning Moment of Awesome a foregone conclusion.
Level 5 Judgelight is at least a remote reference to the similarity of Infrared's semblance to Accelerator
I Still Love You is like Infrared trying to reassure herself to no avail. I would think being genre savvy would bring her feelings distinct but reminiscent to Monika's in the game occasionally.

AMA Section / What badass boast/creed does your character have?
« on: February 06, 2018, 09:43:05 AM »
When times come for the heroic second wind, the last stand for a village about to be overrun by Grimm, or just having something they live by as their guidance, your character will deliver lines so awesome that can only be followed by their massive amounts of asskicking or rivaled by one of your opponents'.

What is it for your characters? Is it from a work they(you) have read or created? Something they thought of themselves? Or skip straight for the combat(or mix and match for the confusion fu)?
Doubles as a source of generic ones for all to pilgariselearn and draw ideas from.

I'll go first:

People are born equal. Egalitarians keep it so.
Other's semblance is an extension of their personalities. Mine is a part of my body.
I am the carrier of my soul. Semblance is my body and aura is my blood. (Obviously ripped off from his consumed media)

Spoiler: She ends up trying to deconstruct a bunch of related tropes. • show
Oh, this is the part where I give a badass boast? You see, people love these. It's cool as all hell, it's moralizing to you and demoralizing to your enemy. Probably because they're so awe-inspiring and believing in them drives you to make it happen, or makes it happen by itself, throwing away other precious consideration in the process, sometimes even logic.
You can also call that fanaticism. It does grant you bigger bonus for a reason, but it could also make you self-righteous and zealous. If they have a different idea than you and they think they're right, they're going to resist your attempts to convince them otherwise and you're both gonna get frustrated. What do you do now, tell them over and over again until they believe? Itís the least forceful way, but they could realize youíre repeating your argument ad nauseam and reject it. What now, beat some sense into them? They'll just call you a devil and reaffirm your 'evil' intentions. Now itís even harder to get them to listen, especially after all the Ďwrongsí youíve done to them.
And no, get off my speech with your notion that moral correctness and power are correlated. They're simply not; ask your local moral philosophers at your own peril. If I beat you handily, that's because I'm better at fighting you than you do me and nothing else. Please do not think otherwise even if I disapprove of your actions. Ideas transcend mortality. We don't need another bland, unilateral society.
I remember one cool women said "if you life it, I can kill it, even if god it is", murmurs deliberately paraphrased to rhyme, and she can back that up quite well. But why god? It's not like there's anything notable for them to favorably compare to. They rarely have feats and the ones they do are really vague, and everything else are character statements. Who would deploy troops with like, 1 atk because the flavor text said that they can incinerate enemies into nothingness and consign a billion souls to oblivion?
Moreover they're either petty enough to interfere with human affairs or ignorant enough not to... wait that was a terrible double stan... no, goalpost moving. I retract that statement. But the point still stands, just not on the same god. But it gets worse: most of them are vengeful or jealous enough to to not stand for the take that and try to get you back for it. You might even get IRL people hot on your trails for it! So blasphemous boasts are bottom line not worth it even if you can back it up.
You also will inevitably have to choose between your creed and doing whatís right. And if you choose the creed, you will have to deal with preventing yourself from becoming a knight templar. Choose wisely. Iíd rather not screw my mind with all this.

It's party time! And the grand event is a great plan setting into motion and us looking all awesome!
When otherís inspirational teammate gives them strength figuratively, I give it literally along with aura and speed!
Revised: The power of love, the power of friendship, these are ideal people draw strength from. I think that makes me the patron saint of it then!

Bring it everyone!

Edit: Damn the overshadowingÖ Time to up hopefully a bit.
People like you are common. They think people who think differently than themselves are stupid. Well some of them are literally about being smart so they kinda get a pass. Some of you think the others are the unenlightened, others think they deserve hell for what they believe or donít. But asserting your view ad nauseam is not really a valid argument, and if you do ask me I would think Iíve seen hell.
Ö Acutally letís not drag this any longer. It comes down to this: Iím not going to beat senses into you, Iím going to change your view. After making sure youíre not harming anyone anymore.

Infrared drops to the ground facepalming herself at her own stupidity, rolling on the ground in a similar fashion as when she bounced off the geist's attack. "What did I roll to fail that check, a nat 1?"

Following the Captain down the deck she look around the ship and found what probably is a few errors in their routine, most obviously leaving the door for dust barrels wide open, leaving it vulnerable to fire spreading to it and detonating dooming everybody inside but it does make loading quicker so she finds their success fascinating.

At the room she paid the most attention to the group photo with all his clan. Stroking through the everybody she imagined how Grimsaw must feel when his true companions dissolved so violently over himself. It must be heart wrenching. Then the attention was turned on the literally breathtaking crown.

(OOC: Probably play Blumenkranz for the crown.)

It's majestic, delicate and attention grabbing. It looks incredible. She gazed long at it before realizing how... charming it is and turned her head away a bit before Cordell snapped the lid back shut. Seeing how herself and captain have been drawn to it so powerfully she immediately shot down Solar's suggestion. "Hell no. Remember how Vasu grew immediately power hungry and waited not even a bit before staging a relatively bloodless coup and went for a forceful takeover instead? It's not worth the risk to try it out especially uncontrolled. It's way better to put it under the security of a Kingdom, contained in a secret vault, to protect us from its temptation."

"Oh hey Quil. Eh, why did you not tell me your arranged containment procedure when I ask about containers? I know it's not the exact thing, but you would think it'd be clarifying to put it as a side note. So what is it?"
