Oddestsey V: The Seven Lords

RP Topics will go in here. It's buried inside this forum to keep it from getting confused with the main RP room section.

Tellu bows again. "As for... limbs regrowing, well, I have no idea. The vines that come out of my wrists... er, wrist now, I guess, can grow back if chopped off, but a whole hand I can't say. A prosthetic hand, while somewhat cool, just isn't the same. If there is a way, I hope I can find it."

Without further ado, Tellu uses the now 30000 credits total she has to purchase a "Deluxgasm" type of each of the 5 categories... assuming there are no further implications.

The minions unhook the arbiters but they seem lifeless, as if some propelling force has left them, but as you do so, some gauges adjacent to their tanks drop to zero. They just slump to the floor, and while a quick inspection reveals nothing wrong with them physically, it seems like they would have to reclaim their own minds to be of any use.

It would seem that they were being used to provide some sort of energy to this place, but for what purpose you can't immediatly tell.
"Great Caesar's ghost! Nothing's ever easy around here, is it?

George, give me a full spectral analysis of the energy signatures and power layouts throughout this building. Everyone else, I want a full recon of the place, top to bottom and inside-out. Stay safe and stay in contact at all times. I want to know where precisely those arbiters' brains went and what this barbaric bowls building's true purpose really is!

And if we can't find out anything useful at all, we'll fall back on Operation Munitions: take the stiffs with us and blow the place sky high!"

Richfield narrowed his eyes suspiciously when the shopkeeper mentioned this new, more expensive upgrade.

"Well that seems highly convenient. I'm not sure I'm happy with the implication that you seemed to assume we couldn't afford these items. You may have honest reasons for withholding legitimate stock back from potential customers, but if so I'd like to hear why. I'd really hate to have to put in a call to my contacts at the Department of Consumer affairs and have you reported."

It sucks going 0-5. You lose all 4 of your bot fights for the week and you also lose at life.

VENGEANCE

As Vengeance inspects the machine, he gets a reasonable idea of what the contraption does; essentially it seems like it could funnel a short burst - perhaps 10 minutes - of all of these arbiters combined powers into Sikander once per day. It looks fairly complex, but there are a few options here - he could easily keep these empty husks of people free - perhaps use them as a bargaining chip, or, redirect the power to allow Vengeance himself to get that burst instead or set it to overcharge so that when Sikander would try to operate that machinery, it would instead wipe out his own powers for a short while.

TELLU, SCARLETT , CYRUS & RICHFIELD

Tellu purchases one item of each sort at the deluxgasm level and receives:

Fine Craftsmanship: A Stradivarius Furious Sports Car - from a universe where Stradivarius made super expensive cars, the Stradivarius Furious is truly the finest. It makes even an amateur driver able to pull off amazing car based stunts beautifully 100% of the time.

Magic: A Staff of Kaleidoscopic Reflection - a beautiful slender ivory staff that can project a shield that takes all energy damage hurled at it, split it into six and then fire it back at the attacker.

Technology: A Small Pot of Quantum Foundation - Some makeup that seems to follow the intent of the user and somehow make the user appear exactly as the intended being so long as they have approximately similar anatomy.

Armour: Helm of Reality Anchor - Prevents the user being displaced against their will in any form - including knock down, knockback, falling or being transported to other dimensions.

Misc: A Tome of Truffle Finding - By reading this long book, you become instantly aware of any valuable wild truffles in your vicinity

Meanwhile, Richfield interrogates the proprietor a bit, who seems quite nervous about a rathy toothy reptile with political power interrogating him. He eventually blurts out that he's had a lot of people trying to haggle on the Deluxocalypse level because they didn't have enough money, so took it off public display until he had evidence that the customer actually had the funds.

Tellu frowns at the shopkeeper for keeping an upgrade from her until after she had paid for her current items, but nonetheless inspects them.

Allegedly the sports car CAN make amateur drivers into professionals, but she doesn't want to take that chance... yet. She considers giving it to someone who can make better use of it than she can.

The staff... oooooh. It reminds her of her old Witches staff that she used briefly, before forgoing it for better use of her plant-based powers. Now that she has the prosthetic hand, it would be a perfect fit. Its power seems incredibly useful for the future battles against Sikander and, most notably, Vengeance.

Make-up... really isn't Tellu's thing, but she considers its usefulness. Some espionage couldn't hurt.

The helm looks a bit unwieldy, but Tellu actually really likes it. She immediately puts it on and examines herself. "Charming," she states.

The book she snorts at. It's likely she knew this all already, but nonetheless endeavours to flip through it at the very least, in case she missed something.

After examining all her items, she notices Richfield continuing to glare at the shopkeep.

"I see," Richfield growled. "You decided to assume we little more than a troop of vagabonds. Absolutely delightful how you profile your customers."

He gestured at Tellu.

"You were pretty quick to assume her final order while stumbling over the reveal of these more luxurious items. Could it be, perhaps, they aren't all you make them out to be? As someone who was also interested in procuring a full complement of items, I'd like to know how you would go about making this situation right."

TELLU, SCARLETT , CYRUS & RICHFIELD

The proprietor looks deeply uncomfortable, but realises he has been backed into a corner...

"I.... I suppose I could exchange one item of her choice for a deluxocalypse level item if that would be reasonable?"

Tellu appreciates the sentiment, though still a tad miffed.

"I'll exchange the miscellaneous item," she responds.
