Garden Quest 17: Situation CriticalThread 10 of the SeeD Exam Prep ArcPrevious Threads: http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?searchall=Garden+QuestThread Opening theme: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XDHhMI5RVDk Stand Proud!Twitter: @Master_Norg>Leo has gained the following Trait: Lion’s Will. This trait Adds +5 to your Overall DC Result However It can only be used twice per thread and does not affect Critical’s.>Selphie has Gained her secondary Limit Break, Arcane Muse>Jaune has Gained his secondary Limit Break, Fist of Determination>Leonardo’s Affinity for Martial Arts and Ki continues to Grow>Serafita has Improved her Limit Break>Makoto and Noel have Gained New Limit Break Attacks>Everyone within the Lion’s Pride has Upgraded Weapons and Armor. One Month and 3 weeks of Training have passed, under the tutelage of such people as Ramba-Ral, Fang and So on; Leonardo and Company has grown in strength and Skill. It is now time of the Fire-Cavren Pre-requisites later on today the final listing of SeeD Field Exam Squad Leaders will be posted for all to see but you know by now that Satsuki, Gamagori, Jaune, Korra as well as yourself will be Squad Leaders though there are rumors that Squall and Seifer will also become Squad leaders hopefully the rumors about Squall were true. Seifer on the other hand you balked at the concept of him in any sort of command position.However the Cease Fire at Timber is slowly winding down and there were already reports of light skirmishes between White Fang Scouts and Galbadian patrols. The air is thick with tension at galbadia garden as everyone is waiting for the other shoe to drop causing the powderkeg to explode.You have been invited to undergo specialized Training, where do you wish to Go Leo?>Artillery command Training>Flight training>Mech Training>Spec-Ops >Arcane Demolitions>Heavy Weapons>Write in. (Define which sort of specialized Training Leo can undergo)
>>38708163A note about Specialized Training, this training will improve you overall, so chose carefully. You won't get another shot at special training until you reach SeeD.And Hyne-Damnit I see a typo. -Tableflip-
>>38708225I'll give it 5 to 10 more minutes before continuing. It seems for now Leo is gonna go Spec-Ops.
Spec-Ops Is the only Choice
>>38708225>>38708488>Spec-Ops Training Selected.Training Montage Theme: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B4dopv9TrvIGiven your prior training at Galbadia Garden it was only logical that you would go the route of the Spec-Ops Commando and much to your surprise Fang was your training Overseer, also oddly enough Jaune and Squall too up the Spec-Ops route.>D20+8 Best of 4 1 Re-roll, Soft DC Is 15 Higher is Better, Lion's Will can be used.Do you wish to use Lion's Will Y/N

>>38708662 DC PASS!>>38708813( Heya Spectral)They said that the strongest of blades needed the fires of hell to be forged, and that was exactly what Fang put you through... Hell on earth, more so than your preparatory training at Galbadia. Fang had all but grounded you and all those who chose the Spec-Ops Route into dust, some dropped out but you, Jaune and Squall stayed the course and when your training was done you have emerged something else.>Leo is now a SeeD Commando TraineeSquall and Jaune were slumping in the Locker room as you were cracking your neck>Jaune, Squall You surprised the hell out of me>This is just the easy part boys>Feels just like home>Brofist. Nothing else needed to be said>Write in
>>38708963>Feels just like home
>>38709053Much to Jaune's and Squall's Chagrin you took this brutal training with a bit of a smile on your face, it felt like the old days back in Galbadia just more... intense and maybe a little bit of painful."Feel's just like home." You said while changing into something more comfortable as Squall gave you a tired look though Jaune just fell over and let out a sigh.What do you wish to do now Leo?>Get some food>Go to your room and Sleep, you haven't had much of it lately>Check up on someone>You got energy to burn... you need to be perfect for the SeeD Exam>Write in

>>38709274>>38709322You needed food badly and so after cleaning up and changing you marched your way towards the Balamb Garden cafeteria to order the biggest and heartiest helping of Galbadia meat soup you can get along with a nice Galbadian Stout. This was a Stronk Man's Meal and you could use the extra carbs to boot.>D20+9 For spotting someone. Best of 3 1-reroll Higher is better.

>>38709757Quest Resumes)As you were eating you noticed everything started to fade and ripple before you were sitting on a table, and right infront of you was a grinning Edea who was patting her stomach."Hello Leonardo.">Edea...>Rub her belly>Before I go into doting father mode.

>>38710054>>38710083>>38710377Sorry for the unexpected AFK."Edea..." You said before going to rub her rather large and distended belly before feeling her hand over yours as she stared into your eyes."No matter how much you try, you still have those bedeviling and beguiling eyes and I see you've attained a new power, at least partially." Edea said she gestured with her right hand to reveal the same phantom that aided you during your last bout with Ragyou."A noble but rather violent spirit... Perhaps I should name one of our children Jotarou or perhaps Josuke?" Edea mused>Really Edea...>Keep Rubbing>Do you know of Ultemecia?>I'm sure it'll help our children...my eyes I mean>Write in

Do you know of Ultemecia?" You asked as Edea closed her eyes before folding her hands yet you kept rubbing before stopping as you felt a kick to your hand causing Edea to snort in laughter."That would be Andromeda I think, or perhaps Altair and to your question Leonardo? I do as my sister told you earlier, Ultemecia is a Sorceress of profound an unparalleled power... She is manipulating events in Timber to what extent I don't know as of now.">What does she want?>She said she has 2 heralds..>How did you win?>I'm worried>Do you know of Rinoa?>Write in
>>38711461>She said she has 2 heralds..>How did you win?>Do you know of Rinoa?
>She said she has 2 heralds..>How did you win?>I'm worried
>>38711571>>38711610"She said she has two heralds, and how did you win against her?' You asked as Edea shook her head."We didn't win persay, more so survived granted that in it'self is a victory Leo... I have a feeling you and her are going to have more encounters none for the better I would say and Leo, don't worry... Have faith in the strength you have gained through your hard work and the bonds you forged." Edea would say as her hands squeezed your hands gently"Do you know Rinoa?" You asked as a look of surprise formed on her face before she began to rub her chin and then a look of enlightenment flashed."Leonardo...You need to save her, everything is falling into place." Edea said her voice slightly firm>I know...>Does she have some special power or trait?>I know she's a part of project seed...>Write in
>>38711926>>Does she have some special power or trait?>>I know she's a part of project seed...

>>38711995>>38712019"I know... I promised on my honor as a Knight to save her but does he have some special power or trait.. I at least know she's a part of project seed." You said to Edea, a frown forming on your face as you remembered those flashbacks of a certain lunar facility. Edea's reaction was a little bit mixed as she shook her head. "The answers you seek shall be revealed in due time Leonardo, but know this, your parents agreed to project seed and I know they would be proud to see you now... Commando Titus.">From the way you're talking I have a feeling you might nudge my name into consideration for Knighthood..

You said while carefully placing your head on her stomach as Edea now ran her hand through your hair."I wouldn't dream of it Leonardo, I know you have pride in your Belkian Heritage dear" Edea cooed before patting your head. "It won't be long now... Andromeda is eager to get out... She is a spitfire.">You do seem a bit further along than My count??>She will be a spitfire, it's in my blood.>Pat her stomach.

"Calm down now cubs, Dad's here. It won't be long before you're out in the world...The pride is eager to meet all of you." You whispered as you felt another kickEdea however smiled before handing you a small box. "Stand Proud Leonardo...always." She said before you were back in the cafeteria of Balamb Garden >Open the Box!>Shake your head... So mysterious...>"I need to become seeD for so many reasons...">Write in>Also Gimme a D20+8 Roll.

>>38713121AND HERE WE GO!At least your food was still warm granted by the clock only a minute has passed. And much to your surprise you saw Selphie, Fujin and Tsubaki, Hell everyone you knew was coming to get food. Yet you saw several new faces, possibly people you didn't notice until now and then you saw Her. She had to be your height but her build well damn she was big.And then you saw Seifer coming towards you...that is before getting knocked onto the ground by the weapon said girl was carrying and then she came straight to your table."You must be Leonardo Da? I'm Natalia, A friend of Beatrix" She said, her voice had a very heavy Northern Serdian Accent to it.>Dah, thats me>Well, whats that weapon your lugging>Smile>Wave Selphie and company over>Inside the box is the following. Special Accesory. Cosmic Arts>A Deed for An Island Nearby Balamb>Guardian Force Gained Alexander
>>38713300>Dah, thats me>Well, whats that weapon your lugging>Smile
>>38713355>>38713429"Dah, that's me" You said with a smile before going wide eyed at the deed...you had to take a look at this but then you noticed her gun. For a moment you swore it looked like something out of an Estharian Armory."Serdian Phase Assault Canon. I make things go boom and put big holes in enemies." Natalia said as your roommates loomed over you with wry grins."We can't leave you alone for a minute Leonardo!" Tsubaki said as she gave a cute pout as Seifer stood up only to give a glare towards Natalaia."Out of my way bitch." Seifer snarled out as Natalia just gave him a firm look. "Excuse me...I didn't notice small ant here.">Let her handle this>"Ignore him...">Show the girls the deed>"I didn't do anything!">Write in
>>38713603>Write inI can't have a moment of peace can I? Seriously what is with this homoerotic fixation you seem to have with me?

I mean Seriously Seifer, what's with this homoerotic fixation you seem to have with me Not that it's no problem if you swing that way and If I seem to recall there was a Serdian word that starts with an S?" You askedFujin went into her own Serdian Accent. "Privet Suka." She said as Natasha broke out into laughter though you felt the temprature rise as you saw Seifer manifesting Ifrit"Why, I just want to talk to my Rival? And the one who tried to steal my dream away from me?" Seifer responded >Leave...NOW>You did that yourself...>Pull fujin closer Just to make a point>Write in

>>38714184"A rival is someone you compete with to get better than and to test one another's limits, you thought you don't want to be better than me... you want to kill me. Seifer, that is an Enemy and you treated me and my pride as such and I'll treat you the same. After all this time you still don't get it that you did that yourself." You said with the air around you growing heavy as Diablos started to form.It was a virtual staredown as you stood up. "Leave...Now Seifer, do not talk to any of us again, and If you ever DARE to try and pull some shit at the exams I will not hesitate...I will break you but I will keep you alive so you can face justice.""Oh, me? No, I won't do something that stupid..." Seifer taunted before raising his hands slowly. "Fine I'll leave you alone Leo you're too much of a chickenshit to talk to me man to man." Seifer taunted >Say nothing>Resume Eating>Zell, Jaune, And Squall are 20 times the man you will ever be>Write in

Zell, Jaune and Squall are 20 times the man you will EVER be." You said in a low tone of voice as a crowd slowly started to form.Diablos leered at Seifer as Ifrit growled at you before Seifer simply walked off your last verbal barrage seemed to sting greatly. "Leo..." Fujin said quietly As Natalia cracked her knuckles."I will break him like insect he is." The burly serdian growled out>Ladies, calm down>Keep your eyes open for him at the Exams...>Finish your food>"I got a Deed to a Island...">Write in
>>38714893>Ladies, calm down>Keep your eyes open for him at the Exams...>"I got a Deed to a Island..."
>>38714955>>38714970"Ladies, Calm down and keep your eyes open ofr him at the exams but I got a deed to an Island." You said a Selphie took a look at said deed before going wide eyed."Leo, we're going to this island NOW." She yelled out>Can I at least finish my lunch?>Is it big?>Well, now we know where the Lion's den is going to be built eventually>Shrug.(Just wait till you see the Island yourself)
>>38715118>Is it big?>Well, now we know where the Lion's den is going to be built eventually

>>38715145>>38715213>>38715215"Three things Fairy, one, Is it big? Two now we know where the Lion' Den is going to be built... eventually and can I at least finish my lunch?" You asked>Un named Island... Balamb Coast.The Island was big alright originally it was slated to be used as a ocean side port station as well as possible location for the Balamb Navy, the plans fell through and so this Island as large as it was went un-used until now.You and your team mates were on a boat Selphie Rented as she drove towards the Island."This is yours Leo?! How did you get the deed to a place like this?!" Tsubaki asked in wonder>Edea..>Our mutual benefactor>It has a natural cove system too?!>Holy Hyne this is big.(To put it into perspective, Balamb in this universe is the size of Australia, and you guys Have an Island somewhere in between Manhattan and Sicily size)
>>38715451>Edea..>It has a natural cove system too?!>Holy Hyne this is big.
>>38715451>Our mutual benefactor>It has a natural cove system too?!>Holy Hyne this is big.

Selphie teasingly said as she went port side before slowly easing the ship into the cove systems in which Fujin,Tsubaki and yourself turned on the Lights only to notice something within the walls of said cove.Barely exposed but they were there... Precious gems in some amount."Selphie, try to ease us up onto the shore, slowly..." You said as she was already on it before finally dropping anchor.The four of you hopped off the boat and started to explore the cave systems slowly making note just how big the cavern systems were Just wait till Rinko and everyone else heard of this.>Do you wish to pry some stones from the walls? Y/NAlso your course of action?>Explore the Island>Head onto the boat and maneuver towards a different part of the Island >Call Someone and let them know of the news>Write in.

Already you had plans and now it was time to start working on them.>Important Text to All members of Lion's Pride from PlatinumAxeORA."Yo everyone, I got a Island... seriously. Putting a Map Marker, Might as well have one last party before we ship off to timer no?"With the message Sent you resumed Exploration of the Island and already you found the key location for the Lion's Den. A massive hill overlooking both Balamb and the Ocean also it seemed to have a good vista point for sunsets.>Keep an eye out for everyone>Marvel at the beauty of it all>Hrm... what now??>Write in

>>38716608>>38716633A small sigh escaped your mouth as you just marveled at the beauty of it all, sometimes you wished you were born here in Balamb... During your time here, the people and the culture seemed to mesh with you.And then you saw a large white Yacht coming towards the Island as Selphie peered. "I think I see some land lovers coming to our fare Isle, Capn, what say you? Shall we loot them for ze booty!?" she teased going into a pirate inpersonation.>Laugh it up. "Selphie...really?">Aye! >Weiss sure loves the color white.>At least it's not Ragyou>Write in.

Nora yelled out as you sweatdropped.She did have a point... but having a personal flag was a while off."I hope they brought beer." You said to yourself As Zwei ran up towards you and barked happily and bouncing around being a lovable derp.>Scoop up Zwei>Show Weiss the jewels you found>Pirate jokes aside, hey guys.>Write in>Thread Discussion, A icon for the Lion's Pride.

>>38717119>>38717121>>38717262"Hey Zwei, Heel heel!" You yelped out before scooping the dog up as he licked you happlily before barking.Phyrra was snickering and Jaune well he had a case of beer before showing Weiss some of the jewels you found from the Cove below, her eyes going wide as she looked at you though Yang saw fit to make things interesting."BUTT TACKLE!" Yang yelled out."Hey Yang I got Zwei with me!" You yelled out as Yang crashed into you from behind though you stood your ground"Clack!" There was Satsuki and company and then you saw Korra coming up with her own group, along with Makoto but then Zwei smelled the scent of Pabo already Zwei was wiggling... ready to chase Pabo for the fun of it."So this is your Island now Leo?" Satsuki said with a small and wry smirk on her face >Yeah...>RELEASE THE ZWEI-KRACKEN!>Uh Ruby... could you hold your dog please>Oh hyne no, Selphie Don't chase after Pabo!>I can see the potential in this island Hell, the coves alone can be turned into hangers and undersea launch bays>Write in

You yelled out as Zwei broke free of your grasp and followed Selphie towards the adorable red panda-cat, Mako followed suit and there was Nonon."Seems you have some animal magnetism problems?" Satsuki asked as you rolled your eyes at her before catching a Beer bottle from Gamagori."Yeah yeah Satsuki, Yuck it up but I can see the potential in this Island, hell the coves alone can be turned into hangars and undersea Launch bays? Well that's later on first things first, us getting to SeeD." You said as Satsuki nodded in aggrement. "A part of me wishes this moment of peace will last Leonardo.">Gimme a D10 Roll.

You yelled out as everyone packed up what they brought and booked it back to Balamb Garden Double Time.The News Channels were on special broadcast talking about how the Galbadian Army decided to forgo subtlety and going for Massive Bombing Runs.Quitis however came to the crowd surrounding you in full combat uniform."Leonardo, I suggest you get some sleep early...Tomorrow you're going to the Fire-Cavren">Hell...it's about time>...Fuck>And My day was going so good>Welp.>Thread End
