14:13:11 [Valkyrion] - The night; thankfully had been quite uneventful in Fort Red, much to everyone's suprise. When the morning came, there was not a particular rush to get back to work; considering the night shift still had an hour or so left before the next rotation. Emerging from one of the small buildings would be Valkyrion, who; at the current time held a rather weary look upon her face - considering she had of course, just woken up. The female rose her arms upwards; outstretching her fingers while a yawn emerged from open mouth. Upon lowering her arms and sighing; Valkyrion would go about waking herself up. First stop, something to eat. Returning to the inside of the building that Valkyrion was using a something of a temporary home. Once inside, she fixed herself something to eat; got herself fixed up for the day and soon re-emerged, once again fully armored. The valkyrie's head turned slowly, looking upon those that continually kept watch; until the shift rotation that is, which would happen in approximately twenty -C-
14:15:53 [Valkyrion] -C- minutes. Still, the female soldier decided to simply let them go about it. They knew what they were doing, and they certainly didn't need her hanging around - so, this left her free. She remembered the invite from Ketchum yesterday, and truthfully; it would be nice to not fight alone - if only for a little while.. She did have things planned.. Things she would have to run by Starlin as well. -

14:24:29 [Ketchum] ok back
14:24:40 [Valkyrion] Welcome back Ketchum - can you see my post? ]
14:25:50 [Ketchum] yep, reading… typing… on tablet, so might be a lil slow
14:26:09 [Valkyrion] It's alright, I think I can forgive you xD ]
14:26:37 ( Ketchum rolls 1d7 => 5 )
14:29:45 Ketchum was still trying to get the hang of her new summons today, as she landed on Avarice, and got the weird desire to well, catch em all! Least the mats, gold, and other treasures available for grinding, once again the area chat would be flooded with ~Group up for gathering?~ as the window would display [Party with <Ketchum> ? Y / N ] in front of Valyrion's hud. Ketchum would then be found nibbling at her nails near the front gate, waiting for anyone to accept her invite due to Starlin's warning the other night. The gold themed spirit sitting on her shoulder and nodding along as the sounds of coins clinking would be heard as the spirit moved.
14:30:00 [Ketchum] (short… hmm, hard to type a lot on a tab)
14:31:34 [Valkyrion] it's okay xD ]
14:31:51 [Ketchum] =)
14:36:12 [Valkyrion] - Unfortunately for Ketchum, her invite went ignored; due to the guard rotation for the morning watch, as well as the other people that resided in the fort were just beginning to wake; while others were going to rest for a while. Two minutes exactly, after she sent the public, fort wide invite however; would there be a recipient. A small chime occured notifying the support summoner that someone had actually joined her party, and should she look upon her screen to see who it was < Valkyrion has joined your party > This was followed by the soft, angelic voice of the female on her approach " I believe I owed you a little time today? I make good on things I say " She offered, stopping a few feet from the other " I trust you rested well? " -
14:36:41 [Valkyrion] I figured that short posts would be more to your liking for the moment ]
14:37:04 [Ketchum] yarr
14:37:37 [Valkyrion] Well then.. Let's go and ' kill 'em all '
14:43:14 [Ketchum] "Ayep!" the bubbly valleygirl like voice would say over the party chat as she enabled the feature, "Totes ready for action if you are Valkyrion~" she sounded sing songy familiar due to her personality, or since the introduction. Or maybe just trying to cover her embarassment of lost control on her spirit. Still as Avarice would then appear by their side like a crouched Arabian ninja with the gold themed wrapped body, "…I have found some potential coin…." As the summoner went on, "Wow, you're much more useful!" the figure nodded, "It is a manticore… the wind of its fortune, does waft like the smell of your unwashed britches…" the masked face would smile. "Okay, so you guys all tease me, I get it!" would wave her hands as the spirit disappeared with a dry chuckle as Ketch waved her hands. "Sorry about that, but, let's go take care of a manticore!" fist pump as she put the minimaps HUD pin up so the arrow would indicate where Valkyrion should lead too,.
14:43:48 [Ketchum] "And totes rested well~ How about you? Kinda look like you never get up on the wrong side of bed, and always have enough beauty sleep there."
14:46:15 [Ketchum] er yeah, buffs… CRESCENDO would play its music as the stat boost came up, and she used EQUIP on Valkyrion [You have gained an increase to all stats, under the effect CRESCENDO. Your DEFENSE is increased. Your SPEED is increased. Your ATTACK SPEED is increased] as she focused her toggles and similar to her party member.
14:51:13 [Valkyrion] - The female soldier decided to simply ignore the rather dry humor of the spirit as it's controller spoke up " Rest is important.. So I always make sure I get enough before anything else. " When the area stated was pointed out on her map, Valkyrion noted the position and closed her HUD before nodding softly " A manticore… Usually troublesome, yet in this case, I believe we have the upperhand " Was all she would say as the stat enhancement buff was activated. With that done, she took the lead and began to make her way to where this manticore was " So, how long have you been playing? " She asked; merely trying her hand at being a conversationalist for once. After all, it was rare that she often gave herself time off -
14:56:38 [Ketchum] "Oh since it closed beta, I keep trying to tell all the newbies that stat buffs is the way to go, but no one likes a support without heals," she'd roll her eyes as she adjusted her cap with a hand. "Personally, love versatile buids here, and the summons were just too cool to pass up when they were introduced in open beta, though they did a lot of work on their AI and script response since then, or maybe I just never got high enough level… Anyway, this time around, I tried to max crafting skills… and go figure, fell WAY behind the average level because I'm considered 'deadweight' by the noobers," she'd make air quotes. "How about you? I mean, seriously, you got a freakin' fly skill so thats totes rare to have the float status with such fine Z axis control… is it learnable? Ugh… prolly not for a support tho, thats the only thing, everything is tied up to summons or buffs," she'd sigh and conclude, even though she waited for an answer. At this time, the red blip of the MANTICORE would pop up as >
14:57:56 [Ketchum] Avarice appeared in its crouch, <i>"….The enemy is near… perhaps the winged one should lead the assault..?"<i> Ketchum would nod along, and then look to Valkyrion as they spied the thing resting at its spawn point in front of cave.
15:05:15 [Valkyrion] - She listened intently on Ketchum's words.. She'd been here since the beta.. Interesting.. Still, after she would finish speaking, Valkyrion would respond as they appeared near the manticore's lair " My ability to fly does not come from my class abilities. it is a sub ability upon my chest plate. Besides, support types are invaluable, even without the healing skill. I am more partial to the support types who revolve around buffing party members. I've been here since the release, was one of the first to actually log into the full game upon it's entrance into the real world. " She finished before unsheathing her sword and now advanced " This should be over quickly enough " She spoke; airing confidence before her passive abilities activated and soon; the additional abilities on her gear activated - showing Valkyrion's buffs underneath her health bar, [ DMG ^ | DEF ^ | ATK SPD ^ | HP ^ | REGEN ^ | MOV SPD ^ | ELE RES ^ ] Once she neared, the female sunk into her couter stance - her long sword -C-
15:06:08 [Valkyrion] -C- resting lightly upon her right wrist " Come at me if you dare! Foul creature " She spoke in a taunting manner, and soon started the count; once the taunt kicked in -
15:06:55 Tahlara enters this room
15:07:32 ( Ketchum rolls 3d20 => 1, 13, 3 = 17 )
15:09:23 [Valkyrion] Hello Tahlara ]
15:10:14 ( Ketchum rolls 1d7 => 1 )
15:11:26 [Ketchum] The creature seemed to ignore Valkyrion, maybe because Avarice thought that was the cue for the hate to actually occur as the Operative summon would do a ninja like step and appear behind the beast to slash down on it and the HATE turned immediately to the gold wrapped summon. "Crap, crap," would say as the counter stance was ignored by the beast due to her summon's AI triggering from what it perceived but wasn't actually happening. Avarice's HP bar below Ketchum's would drop dramatically at the beast got a grapple hold on the ninja summon, and the lion started to chew on it. Ketchum would toss a debuff on the Manticore as she withdrew what looked like a pokeball from her handbag and tossed it. The grenade like object streaked toward the beast and hit it, before EXPLODING for some damage to the HP bar. Despite the relatively, bad start, about half of the first green meter was knocked down from it, even though agro was not on the Valkyrion as inteded.
15:12:37 ( Valkyrion rolls 5d20 => 12, 14, 8, 1, 6 = 41 )
15:12:59 [Tahlara] ((Hey Valkyrion.))

15:13:13 [Ketchum] Yo Tahlara
15:13:25 [Valkyrion whispers to Ketchum] The dice hate me aparently
15:13:46 [Tahlara] Hey Ketch
15:14:32 [Ketchum] cool char Tahl
15:14:40 [Tahlara] Thanks
15:16:37 [Ketchum whispers to Valkyrion] hehe
15:17:13 [Ketchum whispers to Valkyrion] usually i just roll their defense, not our success? hope that makes sense, that way everything is at least attempted
15:18:01 [Ketchum] darn, my time is running low =(
15:18:08 [Valkyrion] - The female soldier had to wince at the stupidity of the summon that Ketchum had brought out.. She really should have waited; and now she was paying the price for such a thing.. Still - the manticore was distracted. Withdrawing from her counter stance once the timer had expired; Valkyrion activated her own buff - which would moderately increase all attributes; giving herself and Ketchum a greater advantage over this monster. With a single back step; the winged warrior would draw her sword back before pressing forwards once her back step motion was successful. When the grenade went off, Valkyrion used the oppertunity to strike. Not just once - but another four consecutive times. Despite the fact her counter chances had not pinged; the damage she inflicted was serious to say the least -
15:18:35 [Valkyrion whispers to Ketchum] The dice rolls were actually for the crit chances for my Heavenly Combo xD

15:22:40 [Basara] Hey ]
15:22:49 [Tahlara] Yo
15:22:59 [Ketchum] The Manticore was taking a brutal beating as it was now being flanked by a highly buffed, and highly damaging soldier Valkyrion, even if the critical hits didn't proc out as crazily, the raw damage and flank bonus would then turn the hate to Valkyrion as Ketchum would activate her <REPULSOR GAUNTLET> the blast of force as she placed a grenade in it, knocking down the manticore despite her mid-range position to it. This was all the Avarice operative needed to start its own string of combo blows, HP bar dropping rapidly as it struck over and over, with coins raining down all around the Mantcore's form. [Use money for special? Y / N] would pop up on Ketchum's side as she press Y. And then, a bright flash as all the coins turned into after images of Avarice to make the epicenter point on the Manticore… It was now at a red critical state of health from all their buffs rolling together as well as counter assault. As it tried to get another rend/lunge on Valkyrion.
15:23:15 [Ketchum] ^last post, so feel free to finish it

15:29:24 [Valkyrion] - This beast was done, and quickly, yet even with the beating it was taking, the manticore still held on - despite the pulsing life bar overhead. Once her secondary assault was finished, she stepped back as the beat turned and the very moment it went to strike her. She slid quickly into her counter strance. As the lunge came for her; it's attack hit her sword and activated the ability in a second of it's activation. Within the five second stance, Valkyrion is immune to damage, and the faster they attack her, the more damage she unleases. Taking another step back, the winged warrior draws the weapon back and down, so that that balde tip is directed towards the ground " You are finished " She spoke before taking a single step and swinging the blade upwards in a quick and furious arc. The blade's edge slipt the air and caused a shockwave to rend itself through the body of the manticore - causing it's form to explode in a rain of pixels. Valkyrion lowered her arm and resheathed her sword -C-14:13:11 [Valkyrion] - The night; thankfully had been quite uneventful in Fort Red, much to everyone's suprise.

14:24:29 [Ketchum] ok back
14:24:40 [Valkyrion] Welcome back Ketchum - can you see my post? ]
14:25:50 [Ketchum] yep, reading… typing… on tablet, so might be a lil slow
14:26:09 [Valkyrion] It's alright, I think I can forgive you xD ]
14:26:37 ( Ketchum rolls 1d7 => 5 )
14:29:45 Ketchum was still trying to get the hang of her new summons today, as she landed on Avarice, and got the weird desire to well, catch em all! Least the mats, gold, and other treasures available for grinding, once again the area chat would be flooded with ~Group up for gathering?~ as the window would display [Party with <Ketchum> ? Y / N ] in front of Valyrion's hud. Ketchum would then be found nibbling at her nails near the front gate, waiting for anyone to accept her invite due to Starlin's warning the other night. The gold themed spirit sitting on her shoulder and nodding along as the sounds of coins clinking would be heard as the spirit moved.
14:30:00 [Ketchum] (short… hmm, hard to type a lot on a tab)
14:31:34 [Valkyrion] it's okay xD ]
14:31:51 [Ketchum] =)
14:36:12 [Valkyrion] - Unfortunately for Ketchum, her invite went ignored; due to the guard rotation for the morning watch, as well as the other people that resided in the fort were just beginning to wake; while others were going to rest for a while. Two minutes exactly, after she sent the public, fort wide invite however; would there be a recipient. A small chime occured notifying the support summoner that someone had actually joined her party, and should she look upon her screen to see who it was < Valkyrion has joined your party > This was followed by the soft, angelic voice of the female on her approach " I believe I owed you a little time today? I make good on things I say " She offered, stopping a few feet from the other " I trust you rested well? " -
14:36:41 [Valkyrion] I figured that short posts would be more to your liking for the moment ]
14:37:04 [Ketchum] yarr
14:37:37 [Valkyrion] Well then.. Let's go and ' kill 'em all '
14:43:14 [Ketchum] "Ayep!" the bubbly valleygirl like voice would say over the party chat as she enabled the feature, "Totes ready for action if you are Valkyrion~" she sounded sing songy familiar due to her personality, or since the introduction. Or maybe just trying to cover her embarassment of lost control on her spirit. Still as Avarice would then appear by their side like a crouched Arabian ninja with the gold themed wrapped body, "…I have found some potential coin…." As the summoner went on, "Wow, you're much more useful!" the figure nodded, "It is a manticore… the wind of its fortune, does waft like the smell of your unwashed britches…" the masked face would smile. "Okay, so you guys all tease me, I get it!" would wave her hands as the spirit disappeared with a dry chuckle as Ketch waved her hands. "Sorry about that, but, let's go take care of a manticore!" fist pump as she put the minimaps HUD pin up so the arrow would indicate where Valkyrion should lead too,.
14:43:48 [Ketchum] "And totes rested well~ How about you? Kinda look like you never get up on the wrong side of bed, and always have enough beauty sleep there."
14:46:15 [Ketchum] er yeah, buffs… CRESCENDO would play its music as the stat boost came up, and she used EQUIP on Valkyrion [You have gained an increase to all stats, under the effect CRESCENDO. Your DEFENSE is increased. Your SPEED is increased. Your ATTACK SPEED is increased] as she focused her toggles and similar to her party member.
14:51:13 [Valkyrion] - The female soldier decided to simply ignore the rather dry humor of the spirit as it's controller spoke up " Rest is important.. So I always make sure I get enough before anything else. " When the area stated was pointed out on her map, Valkyrion noted the position and closed her HUD before nodding softly " A manticore… Usually troublesome, yet in this case, I believe we have the upperhand " Was all she would say as the stat enhancement buff was activated. With that done, she took the lead and began to make her way to where this manticore was " So, how long have you been playing? " She asked; merely trying her hand at being a conversationalist for once. After all, it was rare that she often gave herself time off -
14:56:38 [Ketchum] "Oh since it closed beta, I keep trying to tell all the newbies that stat buffs is the way to go, but no one likes a support without heals," she'd roll her eyes as she adjusted her cap with a hand. "Personally, love versatile buids here, and the summons were just too cool to pass up when they were introduced in open beta, though they did a lot of work on their AI and script response since then, or maybe I just never got high enough level… Anyway, this time around, I tried to max crafting skills… and go figure, fell WAY behind the average level because I'm considered 'deadweight' by the noobers," she'd make air quotes. "How about you? I mean, seriously, you got a freakin' fly skill so thats totes rare to have the float status with such fine Z axis control… is it learnable? Ugh… prolly not for a support tho, thats the only thing, everything is tied up to summons or buffs," she'd sigh and conclude, even though she waited for an answer. At this time, the red blip of the MANTICORE would pop up as >
14:57:56 [Ketchum] Avarice appeared in its crouch, <i>"….The enemy is near… perhaps the winged one should lead the assault..?"<i> Ketchum would nod along, and then look to Valkyrion as they spied the thing resting at its spawn point in front of cave.
15:05:15 [Valkyrion] - She listened intently on Ketchum's words.. She'd been here since the beta.. Interesting.. Still, after she would finish speaking, Valkyrion would respond as they appeared near the manticore's lair " My ability to fly does not come from my class abilities. it is a sub ability upon my chest plate. Besides, support types are invaluable, even without the healing skill. I am more partial to the support types who revolve around buffing party members. I've been here since the release, was one of the first to actually log into the full game upon it's entrance into the real world. " She finished before unsheathing her sword and now advanced " This should be over quickly enough " She spoke; airing confidence before her passive abilities activated and soon; the additional abilities on her gear activated - showing Valkyrion's buffs underneath her health bar, [ DMG ^ | DEF ^ | ATK SPD ^ | HP ^ | REGEN ^ | MOV SPD ^ | ELE RES ^ ] Once she neared, the female sunk into her couter stance - her long sword -C-
15:06:08 [Valkyrion] -C- resting lightly upon her right wrist " Come at me if you dare! Foul creature " She spoke in a taunting manner, and soon started the count; once the taunt kicked in -
15:06:55 Tahlara enters this room
15:07:32 ( Ketchum rolls 3d20 => 1, 13, 3 = 17 )
15:09:23 [Valkyrion] Hello Tahlara ]
15:10:14 ( Ketchum rolls 1d7 => 1 )
15:11:26 [Ketchum] The creature seemed to ignore Valkyrion, maybe because Avarice thought that was the cue for the hate to actually occur as the Operative summon would do a ninja like step and appear behind the beast to slash down on it and the HATE turned immediately to the gold wrapped summon. "Crap, crap," would say as the counter stance was ignored by the beast due to her summon's AI triggering from what it perceived but wasn't actually happening. Avarice's HP bar below Ketchum's would drop dramatically at the beast got a grapple hold on the ninja summon, and the lion started to chew on it. Ketchum would toss a debuff on the Manticore as she withdrew what looked like a pokeball from her handbag and tossed it. The grenade like object streaked toward the beast and hit it, before EXPLODING for some damage to the HP bar. Despite the relatively, bad start, about half of the first green meter was knocked down from it, even though agro was not on the Valkyrion as inteded.
15:12:37 ( Valkyrion rolls 5d20 => 12, 14, 8, 1, 6 = 41 )
15:12:59 [Tahlara] ((Hey Valkyrion.))
15:13:02 ( Valkyrion rolls 1d10 => 3 )
15:13:13 [Ketchum] Yo Tahlara
15:13:25 [Valkyrion whispers to Ketchum] The dice hate me aparently
15:13:46 [Tahlara] Hey Ketch
15:14:32 [Ketchum] cool char Tahl
15:14:40 [Tahlara] Thanks
15:16:37 [Ketchum whispers to Valkyrion] hehe
15:17:13 [Ketchum whispers to Valkyrion] usually i just roll their defense, not our success? hope that makes sense, that way everything is at least attempted
15:18:01 [Ketchum] darn, my time is running low =(
15:18:08 [Valkyrion] - The female soldier had to wince at the stupidity of the summon that Ketchum had brought out.. She really should have waited; and now she was paying the price for such a thing.. Still - the manticore was distracted. Withdrawing from her counter stance once the timer had expired; Valkyrion activated her own buff - which would moderately increase all attributes; giving herself and Ketchum a greater advantage over this monster. With a single back step; the winged warrior would draw her sword back before pressing forwards once her back step motion was successful. When the grenade went off, Valkyrion used the oppertunity to strike. Not just once - but another four consecutive times. Despite the fact her counter chances had not pinged; the damage she inflicted was serious to say the least -
15:18:35 [Valkyrion whispers to Ketchum] The dice rolls were actually for the crit chances for my Heavenly Combo xD
15:18:59 ( Ketchum rolls 3d20 => 7, 9, 1 = 17 )
15:20:08 Basara enters this room
15:21:53 [Valkyrion] Hello Basara ]
15:22:40 [Basara] Hey ]
15:22:49 [Tahlara] Yo
15:22:59 [Ketchum] The Manticore was taking a brutal beating as it was now being flanked by a highly buffed, and highly damaging soldier Valkyrion, even if the critical hits didn't proc out as crazily, the raw damage and flank bonus would then turn the hate to Valkyrion as Ketchum would activate her <REPULSOR GAUNTLET> the blast of force as she placed a grenade in it, knocking down the manticore despite her mid-range position to it. This was all the Avarice operative needed to start its own string of combo blows, HP bar dropping rapidly as it struck over and over, with coins raining down all around the Mantcore's form. [Use money for special? Y / N] would pop up on Ketchum's side as she press Y. And then, a bright flash as all the coins turned into after images of Avarice to make the epicenter point on the Manticore… It was now at a red critical state of health from all their buffs rolling together as well as counter assault. As it tried to get another rend/lunge on Valkyrion.
15:23:15 [Ketchum] ^last post, so feel free to finish it
15:24:08 ( Valkyrion rolls 1d20 => 20 )
15:24:13 [Valkyrion] HA! ]
15:24:23 [Ketchum] lol, overkill
15:24:24 [Valkyrion whispers to Ketchum] Full powered Counter Crush
15:24:33 [Ketchum] sees like 5 digiti damage
15:24:55 [Ketchum] and heya Basara
15:29:24 [Valkyrion] - This beast was done, and quickly, yet even with the beating it was taking, the manticore still held on - despite the pulsing life bar overhead. Once her secondary assault was finished, she stepped back as the beat turned and the very moment it went to strike her. She slid quickly into her counter strance. As the lunge came for her; it's attack hit her sword and activated the ability in a second of it's activation. Within the five second stance, Valkyrion is immune to damage, and the faster they attack her, the more damage she unleases. Taking another step back, the winged warrior draws the weapon back and down, so that that balde tip is directed towards the ground " You are finished " She spoke before taking a single step and swinging the blade upwards in a quick and furious arc. The blade's edge slipt the air and caused a shockwave to rend itself through the body of the manticore - causing it's form to explode in a rain of pixels. Valkyrion lowered her arm and resheathed her sword -C- " Excellent work miss Ketchum. Why anyone would think you are deadweight is beyond me.. Then again… The new players don't understand the concept of valuable support - with or without heal. Both are vital " She would wait until the loot drop was calculated before advancing to claim her share of the winnings -
