    You keep sawing through the first bind, using a fair amount of concentration to do so. You’re not entirely sure of what you’re doing, but it looks like it’s working, so you don’t really mind. "Who says I'm a subject?"

    Walking over to another table, Richards picks up a small hand drill and starts to spin it. “The man who captured you and strapped you to a table, you moron.” Looking around the room, there’s only one door out, and it’s got two guards positioned next to it. No doubt there are more outside.

    "So were you behind that black ball and that spy that was following me?" Is there anything else around here…. Dammit, no. "Because I’ve got to say, that guy was sneaky. I bet he's in here right now. Of course he did wear that same creepy mask as Blaine. Guess it’s a fashion thing now."
    Richards looks at your incredulously and bursts into laughter. “HAHAHAHA! Just what the hell are you on about, boy? Did the gas melt your brain a bit?” You’re almost done with the first restraint…

    You start to saw on your other arm. "I should say the same to you, herr doktor.” You roll your r dramatically. “Why are you kidnapping people off the streets and performing...whatever it is you're performing? Human experiments? What's your game, Richards?"

    He walks over to the cabinet full of virals. “Science is not a game, child. Progress is inevitable.” He pulls one out and reads it. “Blaine claims to revere progress and ingenuity, and yet he limits us, the true visionaries.” He puts it back and pulls out another. “He wastes my time. Time that could be spent researching and experimenting instead of uselessly testing animals.” So he’s a madman. That’s good.

    Commune with the shadows, try to actually talk to them instead of manipulating them, tell them that go time is real soon, that we're going to go into action real soon and we're going to need their help for this one.

    As for dealing with the new Josef Mengele over here, when he gets close we're going to want to hold him hostage, with a dagger in the neck far enough that removing it will make him bleed to death, that might give us enough leverage to get out. This is assuming we aren't able to buy enough time to get all of our limbs free.

    This guy’s starting to piss you off with both his stupidity and his elitism. You’ve had enough of both in this city. "Why not just go elsewhere and experiment?” You’re halfway done with this restraint…

    “This is the alchemical hub of the world! I couldn’t get materials like this elsewhere, child, nor would I have so many assistants or subjects at my disposal.” He continues to peruse the vials. “Really, it seemed obvious to me.”

    You wrench your face in anger. "So you put people's lives, the very lives you swore to enrich, in imminent peril by doing these untested experiments? Maybe Blaine has those protocols in place for exactly that reason. How many other people have sat on this slab that I'm on, Richards? How many have come before me? Where are they now, Richards?"

    You’re running out of time. He walks over to a book and opens it, writing something down as you break through the second bind. “Many. Most are dead, some are here. And why do you get so worked up, boy? Each failure is a step closer to success- look at these guards!” He strides over to one and puts his hand on its chest. “Beautiful behemoths, aren’t they? It is a quicker route to the greater good. Some men would kill one to uplift a thousand. I do the same.” He turns back to you. “Only it’s a hundred instead of one. Mathematically efficient for the time saved.”

    He looks at you, eyes emotionless. “Your skills intrigue me. You will make a fine assassin for me, boy.” Loping over, he grabs your face with his hand. “I will break your body and rebuild it. I will shatter your mind and construct my own in its place. You *will* be mine and you *will* do as I say.” He smashes your head into the steel table, breaking your concentration for a moment. Stars flit across your vision. “There is no other way.”

    "You presume an awful lot, Richards. Who's to say your centurions don't secretly resent you for doing what you did to them? For changing them, for mutating them without their consent. I wonder, if their minds were still collected, what they would say on the whole matter.

    In an instant, you burst out of your arm binds, dagger sailing for the spinal cord in his neck! You’re fast, but he’s just a bit faster… Your blade doesn’t strike home, but it does slice his throat clean open! Blood gushing, he stumbles back towards his cabinet while the guards lumber towards you, drawing their weapons! In a moment of intensely needed focus, you kick your body into overdrive and saw through both the binds in an instant, freeing yourself completely! Grabbing a vial, Richards stumbles out of the room while drinking it…

    You don’t have time for this. With a clench of your fist, shadows extinguish the flames of the chandelier above, throwing the room into darkness as your fist turns into a massive hammer made of the darkness.

    Your work is swift and merciless. You crush the knees of every single man in the room in under a quarter of a minute. It’s not nearly as difficult as you think it’d be. Dispatched, you head into the hallway, hell-bent on killing Richards. The path is lined with cells, each with a different human experiment in it. Some look normal, if a bit deranged. Some look like horrendous amalgams of flesh and bone. Some cells are empty. Rushing down the hall, a bun of brown hair catches your eye. You stop for a moment to look at it.

    In one of the cells is a girl in a red dress, hair pulled up in a brown bun, blue eyes blankly looking at you.

    So quick question. Our amulet of ward fear.is that magically induced fear or fear in general?

    If the girl here is to scared of Dick here to leave (although this might not be the case at all. She could be drugged and have been experimented on, to get her powers in the first place) I say we give it to her.

    Worth a shot.

    She looks like to be a long-term project of his. It is possible that she is completely loyal to him. Though it is also possible that she has degree of independence and/or hates his guts, so she might help us out.
    The question is, do we want to risk that?
    >> Anonymous 05/08/12(Tue)17:08 No.19027339
    Save the girl? Hell yeah we risk it. It will most likely bite us in the ass, but if she was truly loyal, she wouldn't be caged.
    >> Anonymous 05/08/12(Tue)17:46 No.19027894
    I should have phrased it better.
    I mean, will we risk it and try to free her and get her help BEFORE we go after Richards? Since we do not know how she will react or if she will help us. Heck, even if she is not loyal, it is possible that Richards has some hard-wired commands placed in her mind to obey him.

    Of course after we deal with him, we wont just leave her here. We will certainly come back and free her and other prisoners.

    When Blaine said he'd pay us massive amount of gold, what number exactly are you talking about? 'Massive' depends on the perspective. For Shun who lived frugally all his life, 5,000gp is massive. For Blaine that would be some loose change lost under a sofa.

    I admit, I tried to catch you off-guard.

    If we decide against monetary reward and go for an artifact made by Blaine, what kind of thing can we expect? Can you give couple of examples so that we can gouge the powerlevel?

    Maybe he hates a guy in the background of the story he has nick named Background. And he wants to know how the artifact will help us gouge out his eyes.

    Its simple really.

    I haven't practiced anything in years. When I was a kid, I made first dan black belt in Tae Kwon Do, as well as an admirable belt level in Hap Ki Do (Korean grappling). I have the Tao of Jeet Kune Do sitting in my store of books, though I haven't opened it in a while.

    Well we're interested in how she fought, but after we heard that she was literally silent when she talked to Blaine after the past 2 or 3 tournaments and is chained up in a dungeon, we have reason to suspect that she is kept here against her will and mind altered as hell. We'd probably rescue her.

    Remember we are an assassin, we practice an assassin style but that really doesn't make us a bad person, one of the things that Sifu drilled into us was that the Fist of Shadow didn't dictate our morals and we're essentially a good person, just one who is willing to kill the bad people.

    Aaah, very nice. A few of my friends a couple of years ago hit black belt at some sort of 'designer martial art' run by a guy who had a tonne of different styles mastered

    And now one of them's opened his own Dojo and is doing a tonne of work on getting to 2nd or 3rd Dan, can't remember which.

    Bitch is obviously brain washed. We should just yell a, hey, you wanna get outta here?

    And if she doesn't start screaming yes please for the love of fantasy jesus please.

    Well he knows about the fist of shadow so something alone those lines could work, helping us create shadows or make them denser. Though I'm somewhat hesitant as artificial growth along the path of martial arts may only stunt our future potential.

    Since Blaine actually knows of our style, we could request something that directly boosts it, I guess thought I can already hear MAA yelling at me to not depend on enchanted gear.

    Hmm... actually, can we get some direct, permanent upgrade to our abilities? These people do augmentations on humans right? We could ask one of the safe (but less potent) options. Like making us permanently stronger or more resilient?

    Then the next time we meet Sifu Tong, he punches us square in the nose for taking a shortcut like a lazy fucker.
    I'd prefer not to get punched in the nose by sifu.
    >> Anonymous 05/08/12(Tue)22:39 No.19032754
    It is a good upgrade. I don't know Sifu since he has not been my master but I'm sure the grandmanster of an Assassin Style will prefer practicality over stubbornly sticking to some ideals. This is not a 'noble' style, remember that.

    Going by my rpg experience, direct upgrade to stats is always better than money reward. So we should take it.

    Besides, Sifu lost that privilege when he left us with next to no information. He set us free to pursue our own path. His lessons are over and he should not be punishing us for taking our own decisions anymore.

    ....Lazy motherfucker. Heh.
    Jesus Christ, you do like to overblow things, don't you? I'm sure that Shun is at his physical, mundane peak. Only by supernatural means will he be able to go above it.
    Should we stop using Shadow Boost too then? Because it is lazy and a shortcut? Maybe never use Shadow Cloak either and rely completely on our mundane stealth skills? Because, like it or not, it is too a shortcut to make things easier.

    The difference is that we invented Shadow Boost ourselves. It is a legitimate technique spawned of our creativity. As well, the Cloak of Shadows is a legitimate technique granted to us by our fighting style.

I vote for the 100k, we can use that to buy tonnes of small upgrades to get stolen from us by Student, rather than one super upgrade we rely on so much we may even incorporate into our style.
