Garden Quest Episode 16: A distant StormThread 9 of the Seed Exam Prep Arc.Previous Threads: http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?searchall=Garden+QuestThread Opening theme: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XDHhMI5RVDk Stand Proud!Twitter: @Master_Norghttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5Q_7r4SzPP4 setting themeA week has passed for your training for the SeeD Field examination, and given the revelation that you were to be a squad leader you knew that it was only going to get much more intense, however that wasn’t the only thing that was going on. The dreams with Rinoa were starting to become much more vivid despite the infrequency; you could tell she was trying to aid you as much as possible for when you eventually touched down in Timber.Speaking of, the political situation in Timber was growing worse, yet it was nothing short of a damned miracle that the Galbadian Armed forces didn’t resort to Shock and Awe combined with Scorched Earth Tactics though it did open up more avenues for Zoanthrope Discrimination.It’s 11:40 on a Saturday Morning. What are you doing Leo?>At the Gym keeping in shape>In the Computer Labs Looking up information on Timber as well as studying maps. >In your room doing some weapon Maintenance>You’re Out on the town with someone>Helping out Rinko/Cattleya at Starbuilder Arms.>You’re in a different part of Garden doing something to further broaden your Horizons.>Write in

>>38525613>In the Computer Labs Looking up information on Timber as well as studying maps.Yay Garden quest good to see you running NORG.
>>38525798Things are kinda crazy on my end. Family and Financial wise but Garden Quest is back up and running!
>>38525613>In the Computer Labs Looking up information on Timber as well as studying maps.
>>38525798>>38525878Knowledge is power, Guard it well. It was an old Idiom attributed to a famous Belkian knight in the age of antiquity and you weren't going to take any sort of chances. Timber was once a small independent city state like county that had a export business in coal and other mining ventures though also Timber was known for it's uprising large numbers of Journalist's.But that wasn't the reason you were looking it up, mainly you were studying the layout of Timber City, Monster sightings everything and anything you could think of to give you an advantage.>They'll be expecting an frontal assault so Rail/Vehicles are out>Dollet? Could that be the muster point?>Windhill? I doubt the White fang would be so stupid as to attack the chocobo capital of the world.>Save everything you found so far to your flash drive and log into the Lion's Pride Network>Write in
>>38526208>Dollet? Could that be the muster point?
>>38526208>Windhill? I doubt the White fang would be so stupid as to attack the chocobo capital of the world.Then we use Chocobos to get in via a more remote route
>>38526364>>38526406>>38526393 (Working this in as well since that's a very interesting idea.)"Hmm Dollet, that could be the muster point?" You asked yourself as Windhill also came to mind, since chocobo's were woodland based creatures using them to infiltrate Timber did make some sort of sense also the white fang had ball's but they weren't stupid. Yes they were sitting on a choke point for the worlds important railway system but if they went for windhill, the entire world would drop the damn hammer.Chocobo's were valuable even in this day and age, and to go and attack the capital of all things chocobo it was a damn death sentence if they did.>D20+6 Roll.

The Quest Resumes>>38526718You noticed something on the one of the windows you had up was linked into visual satellite data, quickly the image was magnified to it's highest resolution for student access then your eyes took on a jade green hue as Neith whispered into your mind.>Neith: Use my eyes... and all will be seen.Through her you saw various things, A hidden and unseen pass through the thickest parts of the northwestern section of forest in timber leading towards an supposedly abandoned junkyard which had Tread-marks and what appeared to be Rail impressions. This had to be a field base or dare you think THE White fang base in Timber.Even with this newfound knowledge this was still the easy part. The hard part was getting there and rescuing Rinoa and stopping the white fang from their insane schemes.A smirk then formed on your face as you could tell someone was creeping up towards you.>Oho? A dragon trying to sneak up on a lion Satsuki Sama?>Selphie... Really?>Gamagori I know you of all people aren't trying to get one up on me. You're too damn big!>Oh Jaune Hey!>Naaaaniiii Sooooreeeee>Write in

Nonon growled out as she took off her cap and wapped you on the head with it though you had a no fucks given grin going as you chuckled at Nonon's plight.>"So what brings you here Oh sly serpent and Base Guitarist of the still unnamed band for the Garden Festival?>Did you lose a bet?>Say nothing just grin>Oh sly musical serpent, one should know a Lion must have the perception to notice all creatures within his domain.>Write in

>>38530535>>38530613>>38530651"Oh sly musical serpent one should know a Lion must have the perception to notice all creatures within his domain." You said teasingly with the whole Rawr and hand motions to boot. Earning a snort/giggle fest from several of the other students in the library."So what brings you here oh sly serpent and Base Guitarist of the still unnamed band for the Garden Festival?" You asked as Nonon looked over what you found."You've been at this since 6 in the morning... Seesh do you ever sleep?">Oh I sleep good alright.>I'm a Squad Leader for the Field Exam I got to step my game up to 11.>Still didn't answer my question.>I think you lost a bet not that I don't mind your choice in clothing. Shows of your ass quite nicely>Write in.

>>38530811>>38530813"I'm a Squad leader for the field exam so I got to step up my game to 11, besides doing research on the mission area might give me some bonus points for insight and I sleep good alright plenty but you still didn't answer my question I think you lost a bet Nonon. Not that I don't mind your choice in clothing since it shows off your ass quite nicely?" You said as you started saving and backing up the data you collected only to have Nonon smack you upside your head with her hat."You really are a damned pervert and as for the name, I'm thinking Devil's Seance.""But you still lost a bet did you and Devils Seance? Hmm could work? I mean it fit's in with Diablos and all?"Nonon's face said it all, gritted teeth, twitching eyebrows and pulsing veinmarks. Oh she lost a bet allright>Keep the Hue train rolling>Ease up>Is this Satsuki's doing? >Write in.Also I'll like a D20+5 Roll Best of 3. 1 Reroll please. Scenario Roll time

>>38531214 High Scenario Roll>>38531050 Keep the Hue Train rolling.You were going to keep the train rolling for as long as possible, there was no way Nonon will gain any respite."Was it Iori? Sangeyama, Gamagori?" You asked as Nonon growled out at you before stopping as one of the windows on the computer you were on displayed a News Podcast talking of the White Fang releasing civilian hostages!>This is unusual?>You think they're going to go to the negotiating tables?>Well shit, if the movies taught me anything is that the shit REALLY hits the fan when they let go of hostages.>[WORRY INTENSIFIES]>Write in
>>38531328>This is unusual?Uhoh.
>>38531328>Well shit, if the movies taught me anything is that the shit REALLY hits the fan when they let go of hostages.
>>38531386>>38531402This didn't make any sort of sense to you at first, yes the white fang had the civillian populace of Timber held hostage but why now release them? Unless.. Galbadia was actually going to send a negotiator to the table."Well shit, if the movies taught me anything is that the shit really hits the fan when they let go of hostages!" You growled out as Nonon took notice in the change of your demeanor"You think the shoe is gonna drop leo?" Nonon asked some worry to her voice>Maybe I hope not>Wait and see>If it does then our time is gonna get shaved even further>This is one of those moments where the White fang can play the hearts and minds card, or they fuck it up>Something STILL Doesn't add up!?>Write in
>>38531549>This is one of those moments where the White fang can play the hearts and minds card, or they fuck it up>Something STILL Doesn't add up!?
>>38531581>>38531650Something was seriously wrong here, in your mind it wasn't adding up at all. There was a missing piece somewhere and it was driving you insane."Nonon, I got a gut feeling something horrible is going to happen but I don't know what it is." You said before sighing and running your hands through your hair."You should do something else, to put your mind off of this, you won't do anyone good if you stress out over a situation beyond your control, besides maybe you're just paranoid about this?"What do you want to do now Leo?>Head to the gym?>Troll Nonon some more>Get some sleep in your studio>Head to a different section of garden>Write in.
>>38531806>Head to the gym?Might as well get a good workout.
>>38531806>Head to the gym?Gotta stay Galbadia STrONK
>>38531822>>38531860Nonon could be right, you might be over thinking this but still the thought of the other shoe dropping and escalating an already tense political situation to something else entirely. Timber is right near the Capital of Galbadia, and given how aggressive Galbadian politics are there's no way in the pits of hell they'll let this stand. "I'm heading to the gym." You said saving your work and cleaning up your workstation before going to your studio to get changed.>D20 Roll. Best of 3 No Re-Rolls.

>>38532011Well this will be hilarious or end badly.
>>38532018As soon as you walked into your room everything just... froze and the ground beneath you turned into darkness and for a moment you tried to move but something pulled you down....You were floating in nothingness. A void of entropy."So... you are the Akursed Seed who changed the flow of time." A voice echoed around you... it was elegant, seductive but you could feel it all around you hatred for everything that lived. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MEc1OTFaWnIAnd then you saw...Her. Emerging from the shadows garbed in a robe of crimson.>Who...are you>Your voice... I heard you before>...>Write in
>>38532089>Your voice... I heard you before
>>38532111>>38532137"Your voice... I heard you before...""And now we speak face to face, or indirectly, of course Leonardo Titus! You have already denied me a powerful asset!">And I'll deny you more assets!>Why are you doing this?!>Write in.
>>38532200>And I'll deny you more assets!
>>38532239"And I'll deny you more assets! I don't know what you're planning but for the sake of those I care for I will not let your plans pass Dark one!" You yelled out as the woman laughed."The bravado, the arrogance, you know nothing SeeD, You may have denied me a powerful asset but I have two and soon, the harbinger of your doom will come from the stars. Scurry and run, play your war.But know this Leonardo Titus, I will deny everything, all existence reduced to nothingness. Prepare yourself for when the reckoning approaches yours will be painfully exquisite, I shall break your children, all that you care for and then you will be broken.">NEVER!!!!!>You will regret those words!>As long as there is blood in my body, and fire in my soul I will never stop fighting!>Write in
>>38532390>As long as there is blood in my body, and fire in my soul I will never stop fighting!>You will regret those words!
>>38532419Diablos formed around you as your blood boiled violently, you pointed your finger straight at the woman though there was another aura forming around you and for a millionth of a second the after image of a humanoid knight like lion appeared."As long as there is blood in my body, and fire in my soul I will never stop fighting! And neither will those who fight along side me for they are my strength! You will regret those words Dark one!" You yelled out"We will battle soon enough Leonardo Titus! But know my name well, engrave it into your very soul. I am Ultemecia!" and then you were back in your room though Ultemecia's laughter rang within your mind as you clenched your fists.>Write in.
>>38532563Find a punching bag and proceed to let off some steam.Also anyone else still here in the thread?
>>38532563And our STAND Developsultemecia... the future can and will change!
>>38532642>>38532649You found yourself in the gym soon enough and wailing on a heavy bag.... Ultemecia's words pissed you off to no end. She dared threatened your pride, your family. And for what, some psychopathic wish of oblivion?D20+6 Roll. Best of 3
Rolled 16 + 6 (1d20 + 6)>>38532710
>>38532731>>38532733The thought of losing those close to you made your blood boil to the point it looked like steam was coming off your skin.People were slowly moving away while some were wondering who even had the balls to piss someone like you off to such a pointBut then you saw something flying towards you a basketball which stopped in midair as you stared at it only to see Korra, staring, arms crossed."Who pissed in your cereal today Leo?" Korra asked as you grabbed the basketball and just tossed it towards her before looking at the heavy punching back which was barely holding together now.>Someone threatened my family... I won't let that shit slide>Someone pissed off the wrong lion>I think I had one of those, encounters with the villain moments.>Write in.
>>38532853>I think I had one of those, encounters with the villain moments.>Someone threatened my family... I won't let that shit slide
>>38532876"I think I had one of those encounter with the villain moments Korra yet this person threatened my family. I won't let that shit slide."You mean we won't let that shit slide." Korra said punching your arm. "A Lion never hunts alone right and besides whoever said that done fucked up right?">Yeah... >And they have to deal with it!>Bare Knuckle boxing much?>This isn't no ordinary person... but you're right Lions never hunt alone.>Write in.

>>38533178>Ultemecia...I'm still here NORG though it is quite sad with how empty this thread feels...
>>38533198This seems like a good place to call it. But still, Kinda hilarious. I did kinda intend for this thread to be something a bit serious but BBEG Levels of Serious from a Nat-1. AhahaahBut as for later on today and tomorrow? A double dose of KRIEG.
>>38533241Yeah didn't expect to roll that nat-1, but thanks for the run NORG.
>>38533259No problem. Hopefully, we should reach the Seed Exam arc by April.
>>38533282Sweet, well see you later today for some KRIEG have a good night NORG.
>>38533198FF8 is possibly the worse FF ever made, because of what could have been...+ It was heavily edited down from the original concept/story so every character ends up without a conclusion and the plot makes next to no sense when you actually think about it.+ The fact that all enemy stats are modified based upon the party's average level, meaning that if you know what you're doing (Tonberry King GF level down skill) then no boss is a challenge.+ Elements like the card games, the chocobos and the weapons/limits were so poorly implemented that most players either didn't know they were there or don't concern themselves with them. FF6 > FF7 > FF9.
>>38536377I think you meant to link the OP there chap, but I think we all agree with you ... though what's you point?
>>38536421Nothing it just frustrates me is all, and yeah I did sorry.
