Notes on Rolls and Voting:

When I request rolls, each set of three rolls counts for one action. For example, a two-step plan would take the first 6 linked rolls. A particularly bad failure can stop your plans early.

When rolling 1d100, I will consider criticals within the first ten linked rolls. Only criticals that occur in the first three rolls will be counted as "supercrits". This is still the case even if you'd have plan long enough to require more than ten rolls.

When I roll 1d20, the rules are the same, but I only consider criticals for the first five rolls, rather than ten. Criticals in the first three are still "supercrits".

When a plot choice results in extensive debate, I'll try to weed out the most popular trains of thought, and then call a vote on them. When voting, please respond with only a link back to the post and the number corresponding to your opinion. Other votes are discounted.

Finally, note that this is not a democracy; it is a benevolent dictatorship.

Recent Events Summary:

You've learned that Lucifer, an angel second only to Sandalphon, is leading an excavation effort - and his goal is the very artifact you've set your sights on, the Staff of Winds. He's using Vonnegut's resources to accomplish this task as fast as possible, but his anxiousness to see it done created a rift between himself and the crime lord. You capitalized on that, earning Vonneguts allegiance and promising him access to your contacts, and to have him accompany you if you ever meet with the Black Lady, Queen of Vampiria.

But before Vonnegut could create his promised distraction, the earth split open - and the constructs of City 002 attacked in great force. You and your party managed to reach the inside of the excavation, and you discovered it's an airship once piloted by Flint's ancestors, long since buried after they fled from the skysever.

The ancient technology recognized Flint's touch, and began to power up once again. Poised so close to finding the staff, you decided to pilot the wind-driven ship through the storm of the skysever to reach the islands of Xile, the floating kingdom of Aeolus.

While your allies crewed the ship, you moved to the upper decks, where Lucifer was battling against a powerful robot powered by an earth dynamo. You were forced to intervene before the fight ripped the ship apart. Lucifer ignored you, for the most part, and your combined attacks destroyed the robot. You salavaged its dynamo core for yourself.

The ship entered the skysever, and, exposed on the decks, you were blown into the storm. You managed to fight your way through the winds and make it to Xile, injured, but in one piece.

You quickly ran across a strange abberation of darkness, powerful, but seemingly mindless. You evaded its attacks and made your escape. It briefly tailed you, then lost interest and let you go.

Meanwhile, the remnants of the airship made it through the storm, but promptly plummeted to the ground in a storm of smoke and fire. The resident dragon does not seem to have taken too kindly to the disturbance.

You swim rapidly, and quickly distance yourself from the monster. The black orbs zip through the water around you, eating away at your environment, but you're able to dodge most of them.

To your surprise, the creature blinks past you, again firing. One of the orbs scrapes you, taking out a chunk of shadow. The burning acid hurts far more than you'd think. You grit through the pain and keep swimming. It fades after a short time, your aura working to repel the shadow magic.

This time, it doesn't follow you, and you quickly gain enough distance to put it out of your normal sensory range. You're not sure what was motivating it in the first place. Maybe it's mindless. Maybe you just got lucky. In either case, the water of the lake swiftly repairs your wound.

You surface at the opposite end of the lake.

>mana: 6/58

The forest looms in front of you. You're trying to decide on a direction when a break in the sky catches your attention. The blue is suddenly twisting, transforming into a swirling grey mass - and an airship flies through the wall.

It's a smoking wreck. Fire rages on the upper deck. Pieces of the hull are separating from the main body, creating a sight like a falling meteor storm. You can hear the plaintiff whining of the ship's thrusters as it tries to slow its descent all the way from here. It slams into the ground in the middle of the forest, where the slope rises up a small mountain.

You stare for a moment, shocked. Flint. Auriel. Ila. Adavan.

Abigail!

Just as you're about to start forward, you hear a roar as loud as an airship's engine - and the biggest dragon you've ever laid eyes on takes to the air, rising up out of the castle in the middle of the islands. It sweeps toward the wreckage. Its scales are a bright light blue - it's almost invisible against the sky. A powerful force of wind surrounds it.

You need to get over there, fast.

What do you do?

>stay on the ground

Swim through the lakes/rivers to get as close as possible to the wreck then either fly or run. We are sanic fast in water.
>>
So, we have options here.

Lemme lay out how I see this happening:

Step 1 Observe

-Where did our XP go?
-Why can he fly in the sever?
-Where is Vonnegut?
-Where is Lucifer?
-Where is the sun in the sky?

Step 2 Orient

Analyze if possible dragon


Step 3 Decide

-Take him down to the server & into a mexican standoff with Lucifer
-Take him for a swim & into a mexican standoff with the shadowmask


Step 4 Act

<For my next trick, I’ll need your hat, Vonnie. Help a dapper chap out, that is unless you’d rather take this sucker yourself.>


<Auriel, Flint, focus fire to grab his attention. Lure him to the (sever || water). Avadan, Abby, bind him and set him up for Vonnegut. When he’s close enough you slick the ground and get ready to push him into the lake, and poke a hole in his throat if possible. Ila, shadow puppet him if able, otherwise see what you can do. Then everybody either zero in on the base of his wings. Freeze them, and cut them off, then push him into the (sever || water).>

By being a wind dragon, most likely. Just lie our wind dynamo airship was (mostly) able to get here.

then come up with an alternative instead of getting your panties in a twist. At least he is being productive.

>>26760154
Probably because if earth magic costs x2 in here wind magic costs half. Willing to bet a dragon has a bunch of mana + spells that could delay or hold off the Skysever if an airship can do it on a larger scale.

>mana: 0/58

You disappear from the lake's edge and flash through the trees like black lightning. Every second you occupy another spot; you peer through the leaves as best you can, warping from rock to tree branch to clearing. You're at the crash site in moments.

You fully outpaced the dragon.

>2 turns until it arrives

The ship is a burning wreck. The main hull lies in a deep crater, twisted and cracked; the adamantium is ashed over. You here a heavy clanging sound. A plate of metal flies free.

Auriel pokes her head out and breathes deep. "Thank the Light. Come on, child!" She climbs up, plants her legs on the edge of the steel, and reaches down. Abigail is pulled out next, her hair mussed and her face covered in soot, but she's in one piece.

You're on them in moments. <Abby! Are you alright? Are you hurt?>

"Shadow...you're ok." Abigail hugs you. "I'm fine. We thought you...I called for you, but..." She wipes her face with a hand, but all she manages to do is smug the ash on her chin.

Ila arrives next, deftly hopping out of the hull. She appears a bit more beat up, having fought at close range, but this does not detract from her usual acrobatic grace. Adavan heaves himself up after her.

<What about Flint? And Vonnegut?>

Auriel's face goes still. "The engine room was at the center of the ship. They're still down there. Probably ok," she adds quickly. "The engine is usually very heavily armored. They're probably just stuck."

A roar reminds you of the impending company.

What do you do?

<Abigail, we're going to hold off that dragon. I want you to summon while I take it head-on, alright?>

She nods. "Got it."

<The rest of you, search the ship. We're not leaving without Flint.>

Ila is already jumping back into the hull. Adavan and Auriel run after her. You begin to run in the direction of the dragon. Abigail summons a pair of reapers, which take your flanks. She jogs along to keep pace, but you're far head of her in short order.

The dragon is dead ahead, high in the sky. It doesn't seem to have noticed you yet.

Damn, but it's huge.

You notice the sun - it's odd. Despite the blue sky, it's hazy, as if stuck behind a heavy cloud. It's going to be night in an hour or so.

What do you do to attack the dragon? At the very least you've got to force it to land, or otherwise change direction, or it'll just continue on to the airship.

You stop and focus upon the dragon.

Its scales appear as tough as a dragon's scales usually are - but there's something else. They're coated in wind. It reminds you of an airship. Each scale has its own shield of wind.

But despite what this protection would imply, the skysever is not attacking the dragon. It flies with impunity.

It has an immense aura. It holds more magic than you do. Whether or not it's tougher in general, you couldn't say...but you'd be hard pressed to win, alone. The reapers on either side of you boost your confidence, somewhat. They're no pushovers.

<Greetings, dragon!>

The dragon drifts into a long turn, doubling back over your head. <WHO SPEAKS? NO ONE HAS SPOKEN TO ME...IN A LONG TIME.>

<I am a companion of Sir Donovan Flint, descendent of the Goddavi family. We have returned...as he seeks to restore Aeolus's Order to its former glory!>

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HomZkl-jX80

<GODDAVI!?!> The dragon's voice thunders in your head, and it lets out a roar like thunder. <TRAITORS! COWARDS THAT FLED AND ABANDONED THE MASTER! WE DO NOT SUFFER TRAITORS!> It hovers immediately above you. <AH, I SENSE YOU NOW. DARKNESS! WORKING WITH THE GODDAVIS! CONSPIRACY! WE SHOULD HAVE KNOWN! YOUR DEATH WILL COME UPON MY WINGS!>

True to its word, the dragon flaps its wings. A gust of wind like a scythe of death glows with green energy. It and plummets toward you, and a wide swath of the forest around you!

What do you do?

>get the hell out
>Blink, just focus on escaping the blast radius
>Blink up to the dragon
>adamantize yourself to defend
>some other strategy

It's kind of stupid to worry about "wasted" dice, yes, but they aren't random.
And thinking it's meaningless is even stupider, because, surprise, humans are superstitious. Sure, "dice karma" doesn't exist, but none of what we're doing right now exists either, it's just a bunch of light projected into our eyes, showing shapes some other guy wants other people to see.

DICE are random, the dice that are rolled on /tg/ aren't. I don't feel like explaining this to you so someone else can have the liberty of explaining this to you.
>>
>>26762049
The wind dynamo powering our ship didn't stop the skysever from attacking completely, it just provided enough protection to keep it from shredding us.
>>
>>26762052
Remember what happened on the airship? The Airship flied unmolested until our earth dynamo negated the wind shield. If we can get the earth dynamo in close proximity to the dragon while it flies, the same might happen. If we used the dynamo like some magic earth grenade, despite the fact that earth magic is weaker here, it might be enough to put some hurt on the dragon.

You Blink behind the dragon, evading the growing blast of wind. You drop down onto its back -

<TRICKS OF THE SHADOW -> The dragon rolls in midair, pointing its belly toward you. <- WON'T FOOL ME!> It flaps its wings again.

You take a face full of razor wind as point-blank range. It feels like a mini-skysever, and you're caught totally in the open.

>you've taken 23 damage (58/81)

You land on the belly of the beast. It flips back over, flapping normally to regain altitude while attempting to shake you off. You cling on, barely.

You drive your limbs into its scales. It's like punching knives made out of adamantium. The wind sears your aura off your skin; it bites you with every touch. You crunch a couple of scales, but the dragon hardly notices the damage. The effort hurts you more than it.

>you've taken 5 damage (53/81)

You're on the dragon's back, but you're not sure how long you can stay there.

A few dozen of the trees where the wind hit are vaporized to sawdust. Abigail's reapers are gone, probably destroyed in the blast. Hopefully she'll cast something else.

At least it's distracted.

Addendum: When appropriate.
Obviously from our current position (or its back if we go for the wings), toxic smog would do nothing (we're flying and downwind of its mouth-hole). If we vote to go straight for the head, use it then.

>>26762440
I don't think we should use smog unless we are near its face because the smog will just get blown away by the wind

You know dragons typically have powerful breath attacks right? (at least all of the ones we've encountered so far)

But they have to suck in for those attacks to work, so instead it would be better to ink into his lungs from his nostrils instead of his mouth, and toxic smog there.

To everyone that wants to try and go inside the dragon, That only had a possibility of working last time because the dragon was heavily wounded to start with, and then we screwed it up and took heavy damage.

This dragon is leagues stronger than that, I really think we should use as much care as we can while fighting it, possibly retreating after dealing some damage.

The dismissal of this summon is beyond even Abigail's abilities.

A wing lifts high to twist the dragon once again - and that's your opportunity. You leap, and hook several claws around the front edge of the limb.

The dragon roars and shakes, but you hold on. You slam the joint where it connects to its torso. Your claws tear at the leading edge. Spikes of shadow drive into the leathery section of the wing. They're blunted by the wind, but you tear more than one gash.

The dragon's heavy aura of wind continues to buffet you at every turn.

>you've taken 3 damage (50/81)

The dragon spins, turning over and over. You set in hooks of shadow and hold on for dear life.

It spins faster. The wind turns with it, warping into a shell around first its skull, and then its neck. The cone of razor winds grows, and it spins still more rapidly.

Power is gathering behind the dragon.

This reminds you of your own ability. You feel a bit nervous.

But - you've managed to weather the storm. With all the dragon's power concentrated in its movement, you've done a lot more damage to the wing. It's half shredded, and the joint is cracked, bruised, and bleeding. But it's still functioning.

You're not sure you want to stick around for when the dragon takes off.

What do you do?

We took 24 damage from a normal failed roll, a critfail would kill us outright.

I'd rather have gone into this fight with a managable supply of mana.

Hopefully we can make it out of this in one piece, and with luck it will have lost a wing. When we come back to fight it again, we will be on much better ground, assuming we can find one of Xile's Mana pools.

>>26762981
>>26762983

You wrap half your body around the end of the wing.

And then you start to spin your aura in the opposite direction.

The auras both grow in size and power. The dragon's is a twisting thunderhead; yours is a refined point of honed Shadow. They spin, and grow, and spin, and grow.

The auras contact each other. An ugly sound screeches out as they rail against each other, aura on aura, as if the air itself is tearing apart at their point of meeting.

All the while, power grows behind you - and the dragon.

<YOU WILL NOT BEST ME!>

<We'll see.>

BOOM
BOOM

For an instant, you feel like you're being torn in half by the force.

There's an ugly rip, and then you're speeding away with a dragon's wing in your clutches. You cut out your supersonic almost immediately and try to get down to the ground - you can't fly here, not now.

You turn in time to see the dragon. A bloody gash is all that remains of its left flank; it's spinning out of control, straight for the edge of the islands. With a heavy -whumph-, it vanishes through the barrier and into the skysever's outer wall of winds.

>you've taken 5 damage (45/81)

You hit the ground hard. For a moment, you just stand there and breath. That was intense. You wonder if you killed the dragon.

Maybe. Maybe not.

An explosion of lightning magic in the direction of the airship wreck snaps you back to the present.

Lightning? Oh, shit.

You sprint in that direction and try to come up with a plan.

What do you do?

>>head for the lightning
Since Abigail was along to help us deal with the dragon, odds are good she saw what just happened, and will see that the dragon is mostly dealt with for the time being, and will head back when she sees the same lightning magic that we just did. No need to delay our return to have us get back at the same time, I don't think.

The sooner we get back, the less time Lucifer has facing down fewer adversaries. Also I kind of want to catch what he and Auriel have to say to one another, which is likely to be occurring sooner rather than later.

Beat him to death with the Dragon's wing.

On an unrelated note, I really want us to see if we can carry around the dragon's wing and use it as protection from the Skysever, or if the self-contained barriers on its scales need to be attached to the dragon itself to work for one reason or another.

Not sure this matters too much, seeing as higher-tier summons can attempt to break control if the summoner dismisses them, and I'm not sure she's quite practiced enough for us to actually WANT her to dismiss summons rather than just letting her send them off to fight until they keel over instead.

You consume the dragon's wing as you run. It's not the most filling of meals, but it's something.

>you gain 5 hp (50/81)
>you gain 3 mana (3/58)
>you gain 2 EXP (13)

You race back to the wreckage post haste. You skid to a halt at the edge of the tree line.

Lucifer is standing in front of 7 other angels that seem to have survived a trip inside the airship. Opposite them, adjacent to the wreckage, are your friends - Auriel, Ila, Adavan, and, to your relief, Flint. You note pinkish skin on his right hand - freshly healed. He looks drained, too.

Both sides look exhausted. Auriel is staring Lucifer down. Lucifer's gaze flicks between her and Adavan. The lich is poised with another magical attack primed and ready, one hand in front of him, another pressed to his temple. Ila is lingering near the back of your group, sizing up each angel. You don't see Abigail anywhere. She must still be in the forest.

Vonnegut stands in an odd space between the two groups, and he's sweating bullets. His fingers work madly on the edge of his hat.

This is at least somewhat because I want to see how Vonnegut tries to get himself out of this mess, honestly.

Also probably a pretty good tactical move to wait until Abigail returns as well, but still mostly about watching Vonnegut squirm a little more.

Lucifer is exhausted, and we can move in when we need to.

Try and keep to the shadows, we should regenerate a bit more HP and some mana.

It's the same as "turn 360 degrees and walk away."
It was something stupid that stupid people said, but the idea stuck with us and now keeps getting thrown around the community.

They're called "memes," but we're not supposed to like that word anymore because everyone with a computer now knows about them and butchers both the concept and its contents.
