    ((RE: Archiving. I think three people attempted it. Myself and two others. I know for a fact I did it properly, but there was one there already when I got back to the main list, so... Yeah. WHOOPS. Oh well, there's always easymodo:

    Or, while it's still up: boards.4chan.org/tg/res/16574667))

    The city is grimy. It's the best way to describe it. The walls, the ground, the food, the everything - it looks like you'd want to wipe your hands off after touching it. There's just this feeling of... filth, everywhere, and your charge/scion/champion/servant/holder is no exception. There's a reason she, formerly he, wears all those layers, you notice. It's so the dirt can't get through. She must be wearing at least ten. Diometricus (As she stalwartly reminds you she is called) mentions offhand that money exchange is easily the simplest thing to do. The local currency is Garrums, heavy lead coins. We get one for every ten coins we turn in - still a tidy amount, Dio notes, as a single Garrum is usually a week's food and board.

    You mentally note concretely your funds:

    100 Garrums

    (CONT, this will take a bit)
    >> EGO !b0vpMZLBb6 10/10/11(Mon)14:55 No.16581751
    Which, in your mind, is excellent. Then you get a good look at the coin. Looking back, not in profile, but dead-on, is an angry orc face. He looks like any other orc you'd see, except for the love of the Free Man he's on a godforsaken COIN.


    After your sealing, Orcs overran the city from the east. Formerly, the kingdom now known as Rust held them back with superior metals and armies. Resistant as they are to magic, they bowled over the rusted kingdom and then right over this one - but while they were warlike, they also had a simple government, and they took over. hence, Garrum, Lord Master, is in charge of the kingdom now.

    Judging by the state of... well, the state, you assume that most of the cash made from taxes is spent on military, which then goes out to take over more towns, cities, and countries, in a bid for more taces, which go towards more armies, etcetera. Unfortunately, the average orc is worth two or three men.

    >> EGO !b0vpMZLBb6 10/10/11(Mon)14:56 No.16581756
    Fortunately, for you, however, they are scared shitless of magical and sentient weapons and items, fearing that said items subside on Orc souls instead of meat. Hence the culling. Though... from the sound of it, they just slammed things with a hammer until they broke - you know for a fact several intelligent items and magical weapons are far tougher than that. Looks like you might have to redefine your priorties.

    A quick review of your powers:

    1: You can exert your EGO on the world around you, at the cost of your control of a situation. This is technically shaving off bits of your self to fuel wild sorcery. You can also roll a d100 when suggesting something involving your weilder at the cost of 5 EGO, allowing you to subvert your weilder either subtly or overtly, so long as you roll under EGO -AFTER- the new value. Please mark these posts in the subject line with INFLUENCE.

    >> EGO !b0vpMZLBb6 10/10/11(Mon)14:56 No.16581760
    2: When you strike organic matter, you cause the wound to necrotize. If untreated, or the victim does not die from the initial wound, then the infection will spread to the whole body, leaving a living, pained rust mummy. You are uncertain as to their capabilities, but you have no control of them, and the process can take weeks.

    3: You can float, with enough speed and force to pull ten pounds of weight.

    4: From the gem on your hilt, you can expend currently charged energy from kinetic force and movement. Keep in mind this causes recoil. When using this ability, please check the most recent cannon die, roll it, and mark your post with the subject CANNON. Not Canon.
    (Current CANNON die: d10 )

    Currently, you are in a metal sheathe, and your champion is eating. You'd rather not know -what-.

    >> EGO SCORE: 80 EGO !b0vpMZLBb6 10/10/11(Mon)14:57 No.16581771

    You are a sentient magical blade, out to appaerently take over the world.

    You woke, to make a deal with a young man. You would make him rich. He took you, and, in the process, you exerted EGO for the first time to turn him female. You discussed her situation - she is homeless, and depends on an Orc Templar named Big Green to avoid harm in the city.

    You awoke a Giant upon leaving your tomb, handily defeating it with a d10000 CANNON blast, blowing him to pieces and discovering that the ability also propels you, albiet in the opposite direction. You then arrived in town, to find that much time has passed since you were sealed.

    ((OKAY. Now we can get this party started.))

    You blearily shake yourself awake. Although you should not need sleep, ever since the sealing, you've been unable to stay 'awake' for much longer than a normal human. Which is odd, but not a dealbreaker for you. Eventually, you're confident you can find a way around it.

    You get the feeling that augmenting a being too often will have... disastrous results. You recall that your second wielder, Tomerius, died this way when you accidentally added too much muscle, resulting in a snapped spine.

    You look to Dio - she's eating at the moment, some gray gruel.

    >>What can you tell me about the time since I was sealed, Dio?

    She jumps a little, then relaxes.
    "Well, the Eastern Kingdom and this one were always on the... edge of war, as I understand it. I don't know all that much, really, but this country started making weapons, magical ones, to aid their soldiers in case a war broke out."

    Ah, you remember - you were made alongside dozens others. Suits of armor, magical chests, sheilds, even money, for spying. You and your brothers marched into war against the East. And you were victorious.

    "At the time, we didn't know about the Orcs. We destroyed the kingdom to the east, and, uh, that was that. The weapons were sealed away, so they couldn't be used, even in a civil war. Then the Orcs came, and rolled right over us - our weapons weren't that great, our armies were weak, and our magic was useless - only the paladins even brought any skirmishes to a stalemate, but eventually... They died. Takes a long time to train a paladin."

    >>Ah. So that's why...

    "Yeah. Orcs're in charge now."

    >>Huh. I see...

    You can feel him - deeper in the city. Deep within its bowels. He rests on some sort of podium. He still shines, untouched by rust or dirt or grime.

    The Hand of Turso.

    A collective group of artifacts, Turso was said to be fully automated in combat, moving to assist the user in manuevers as well as sensing danger. It's likely the orcs broke him apart, for without the helmet, the whole set is silent, yet retains some power, piece by piece. As far as you recall, the Hands each increase grip strength, preventing disarmament as well as allowing for some powergul grappling ability. He also resizes himself to the holder.

    As for location... aside from being on a stone podium with... lots of noise... I cannot discern more than a rough direction.

    You seek her out again.

    So pale. So incredibly pale, most if not all of her skin has probably not seen the light of day for years. Smooth yet wiry, there's a hidden strength there, a power of determination. A... constitution that is undeterred.

    "There, I've measured. I think there is an outfit here for you that will work while you wait - it'll take a full day."

    "Oh, fine. Bring it out." she says, sitting on a bench nearby in the small room. She still looks boyish - perhaps the full effects on bone structure take time to set in. But it's clear that other than that the initial transformation was a resounding success. She slips into the studded leather suit the man hands her. It's a little loose, but not terrible.

    "Renting only - you'll have to pay for it if it's excessively damaged."

    "Thankee, sir."

    "Not a problem. Let's go get that sword of yours back."

    He opens the safe and hands you over, and she smiles, sliding the sheathe and belt onto her waist.

    GAVEL has the natural ability to DETECT EVIL. This, however, only applies to things that are NATURALLY or ELEMENTALLY evil. You don't count. Also, he can smite said evil beings, causing him to gain a sort of etheralness to pass through armor and strike bones directly.


    >>He... didn't notice? Are you androgynous, or is he just...

    "He's mostly just thick." Dio admits, walking hurriedly down the street. "But then, he's a nice person."

    you swoop low, and mod flies from your blade into one of their eyes, as she surges forth. She's fast, you notice - must have grown up here. her knife flicks high, then low, and then she steps to the left, an overhand swing missing wide as she smiles, bringing up her knee into their gut - as you slide into his neck, through his spine. You come out again as another wipes the mud from his eyes and Dio spins to block the other, who had yet to move. her dagger darts out, and he grips his hand, weapon clattering to the ground as the last man rushes forth.

    You simply rise and skewer his heart. He falls dead.

    She stands over the last man, helpless.

    Loren tells you where to find the arena, and mentions offhand that while anyone can enter, the rule of "to first blood" is often ignored and the matches can be highly lethal.

    While Turen is sentient, he is silent until more pieces are gathered. Likely he was scattered.

    You also learn that the current champion is an orc, bigger than most, clad in full plate with an enourmous mace - he notes that the head of it is about as large as Dio.

    One of the sleeves on the leather armor is opened, a long smooth cut. Her pale flesh is untouched.

    The man barks a laugh, clearing his eyes just in time to knock the blade aside before Dio can slide it into his gut.

Dio stays close, trying to get through his excellent defense, but once, twice more, the man defends well enough to deliver a riposte, then kicks Dio in the center of the chest.

    >So now I can talk to you here, I guess?
    >>I guess.


    You return to the holding area. The leathers are beyond repair, but at least they won't fall off - so long as Dio is careful, anyway. The last one opened it all the way to the small of her back. She heavily takes a seat.

    Well, Dio can't watch them, but can we watch them with our magical powers? Also, after we killed the giant, our ego went from 15 to 90. Is that from the shaking idea? Also, you said our empathy increased. What does that mean?

    >>I'm going to take a look.

    It's a match between a small man with knives and a tall thin man with a bow. The tall man gets off one shot before the midget reaches him, dropping him with ease and returning.

    The next passes, as there is no challenger. Same with the next.

    Dio is then called up, along with another. But as you enter the arena, there's a loud hubbub.


    "Things've changed! This fight's fer the prize! Someone killed the champion!"

    Your opponent is the archer, who watches you quietly.

    I say if Dio attacks, even with the dagger, we use EGO to help her hit, and also make the attacks a little more powerful.

    Judging from the match we saw? Does the archer seem to be an honourable fighter?
    If so, bow to him before we start to fight.

    Also, how far is he away from us? How long did it take him to fire his shot on the halfling?

    I read it more as cold and calculated. The halfling was running at him and he just shot him and then walked off.

    Also, the champion is dead? How did that happen becuse it certainly wasn't the halfling.

    We have to be careful about this archer, though.

    Dio bows respectfully to the archer, who, briefly, looks shocked - then smiles warmly as the bell dings.

    >>GOGOGO If you can make it there in just a few seconds

    Dio runs, low and hard, as you watch the archer, who is starting to slowly back away... and fires.

    Dio runs to one side, suddenly, the arrow pithing in the sand behind her. Arrow two zips between you and Dio - more damage to the outfit, but no blood, and you're in melee range now. He drops the bow as Dio lunges, pulling out a shortsword - and is only barely skilled as Dio. You even think Dio could manage it alone... if the front of the outfit wasn't sliding down her arms slowly.

    She has him pinned, it seems... but if you don't act soon, she's going to lose the manueverability of her arms.

    If I remember, we can excert a little bit of force (10 pounds, if I remember correctly) without draining our reserves.

    Let's use that to keep the outfit from sliding down.

    You use the force that normally lifts you to lift the front of the outfit. You weren't certain of this before, but hey! Experimentation seems to have fallen in your favour. Thank god for that.

    Dio is gaining the advantage, kicking his legs to knock him to his knees.

    Agreed. Use your force to keep it on. Also, try to murder this guy dead with your dagger. This is a fight to the death after all.

    >>Let him surrender.

    "Surrender." Dio says, "Or the first blood will be all of it."

    The man weighs is options, lifting his blade... Then stabbing it into the sand.

    "I surrender."

    The fat man laughs as he walks out, raising his arms to the cheers of the crowd. Dio, for the first time since you met hi-her-them, smiles broadly, happily, and takes the small purse (Twenty Gs!) and the artifact with grace. As we leave, the archer approaches you. and hands you a new robe.
    "Excellent fighting, miss." he says, then leaves.
