Dream Eater

Jan 28 13:43:59 <Liebe> Tau lays on the slab impassively, staring up at the blind white lamps as the things wearing Adhelami's skin scurry back and forth with needles and thread from a table to her slab, chittering and pushing the sharp steel things into her skin at random points. From over a loudspeaker, a man counts down from 10, clicks his tongue, and then repeats.
Jan 28 13:44:52 <Liebe> She flinches at each needle, but does not otherwise move, looking for some far off meaning in the surgical lights.
Jan 28 13:47:14 <Maddy> There's a sound of dripping water and eventually Tau can feel a drop on her face. The water is as cold as ice, and stings her skin. The drops come faster and heavier as time goes by.
Jan 28 13:51:28 <Maddy> The room is filling with water and the voice over the loudspeaker starts to distort as if also coming from under water. MDef to spot your dream tell.

Jan 28 13:54:57 <Liebe> Tau flinches, her brow coming together slightly. Rain. No, maybe the sprinklers had come on. No, no…there was something about water she was supposed to remember…
Jan 28 13:56:25 <Maddy> The room is filling with water and the voice over the loudspeaker starts to distort as if also coming from under water. MDef to spot your dream tell.
Jan 28 13:56:59 <Liebe> 4df+4 Was this how it was supposed to go?
Jan 28 13:57:00 <Glacon> Liebe: Was this how it was supposed to go?: 5 (4df+4=-, +, 0, +)
Jan 28 13:57:17 <Maddy> Success, describe what happens next.
Jan 28 14:00:10 <Liebe> Tau frowns from her spot on the slab. No, this wasn't how it was supposed to go. She sits up, grabs one of the Adhelami's things head in her hands, and crushes it, sending the black centipedes inside the fake body flying into puddles. She immediately begins to close her steel trap of a mind, willing away the op room.
Jan 28 14:02:59 <Maddy> The room shudders horribly for a moment and there is a scream or frustration from an inhuman mouth on the edges of her sences. Tau finds herself in the safe room byt the fire. Her chair is waiting.
Jan 28 14:06:10 <Liebe> She skirts around it, something freying at the edge of her muddled senses. Something not right; she looks into the fire.

Jan 28 14:08:33 <Maddy> The fire crackles and pops pleasantly at first but someone bursts through a door behind her grabbing the scruff of her neck and dragging her off. [You should hae stayed in the boiler.]
Jan 28 14:11:36 <Liebe> She pauses in infantile shock again, some deep part of her instantly telling her to submit to the touch and let it happen - but no, she was not 12, and there is no mask. "[Unhand me, Greggor.]" She whirls around, tearing at his hands.
Jan 28 14:12:41 <Maddy> Roll melee. +2 for Scene Aspect "This is My Mind"

Jan 28 14:15:12 <Maddy> She tears at him, but his strange leathery skin seems to resist. Angrily he slams her against the wall. [No, no child, you have been avoiding this long enough.]

Jan 28 14:17:44 <Maddy> The hand on her neck just can't squeeze hard enough…something is wrong and there is fear in Greggor's dead eyes. He flees!

Jan 28 14:21:08 <Liebe> Tau frowns deeply. "[Why don't I show you the fire, instead, you blithering idiot?]" Suddenly, the scene shifts - a drawing room, walls on every side covered in bookshelves, the wood of the place promiently black oak. Gregger heads towards the kindling fireplace in the back of the room.
Jan 28 14:21:26 <Liebe> Spending an AP for Scene Aspect: My Sancturary
Jan 28 14:22:21 <Maddy> "Nooo! NOOOO!" the voice distorts again, as if under water as Greggor burns. "This is MY home"
Jan 28 14:22:28 <Maddy> 4df+4 MDef.
Jan 28 14:22:28 <Glacon> Maddy: MDef.: 3 (4df+4=+, 0, -, -)

Jan 28 14:23:14 <Glacon> Liebe: My Sancturary and Sincerity: 9 (4df+8=+, 0, -, +)
Jan 28 14:24:25 <Maddy> Oh jesus. The scene shudders, but whoever ishere can't change anything. Furthermore, there seems to be a hole in the wall, the sounds of the ocean hear on the other side.
Jan 28 14:25:38 <Liebe> Is it leaking water?
Jan 28 14:26:39 <Maddy> Slightly. Barely a trickle.
Jan 28 14:29:07 <Liebe> Tau seems wholly unconcerned - she runs a hand over the book's spines, her fingers leaving behind little gold sparks as if her nails were made of flint and the books were stone. She speaks as she approaches the thing wearing the Adjutant's robes. "[Explain yourself.]"
Jan 28 14:31:54 <Maddy> There is nothing but a chared body. Perception.
Jan 28 14:32:14 <Liebe> 4df+3 Dreamstare

Jan 28 14:32:53 <Liebe> 4df+3 Aw yea.

Jan 28 14:33:01 <Glacon> Maddy: 2 (4df+2=0, 0, +, -)
Jan 28 14:33:25 <Maddy> Yeah Tau hears somethign skitter through the hole in the wall and SPLOOSH into the water on the other side.
Jan 28 14:34:09 <Maddy> She catches glimpses of something leathery and wet, and not at all human.
Jan 28 14:37:46 <Liebe> Tau stands at the port, spitting venom out into the dream ocean. Then she remembers the fiery mountain that dropped from the sky the other week…hm…
Jan 28 14:38:16 <Maddy> Suddenly…
Jan 28 14:38:41 <Maddy> http://fc02.deviantart.net/fs25/f/2008/165/4/c/sea_creature_by_Wildforge.jpg THIS sticks its head through, screaming at her. MDEF to no flip the fuck out.
Jan 28 14:39:14 <Liebe> 4df+4 Oh sweet metal lord.
Jan 28 14:39:14 <Glacon> Liebe: Oh sweet metal lord.: 5 (4df+4=+, +, -, 0)
Jan 28 14:40:22 <Maddy> Passed, barely. It stats to claw its way through, trying to get to her but it's having trouble. It's belly, fat with the nightmares of the Convoy hampering its movement.
Jan 28 14:40:46 <Maddy> "You deny me my meal!
Jan 28 14:40:48 <Maddy> "
Jan 28 14:41:28 <Liebe> Tau takes a step back, face impassive. I would like to instant kill the Dream Horror.
Jan 28 14:41:38 <Maddy> Go for it.
Jan 28 14:42:09 <Liebe> 4df+5 Let's see.
Jan 28 14:42:10 <Glacon> Liebe: Let's see.: 5 (4df+5=+, 0, -, 0)
Jan 28 14:42:12 <Maddy> 4df+3 Shit I picked the wrong brain to snack on.
Jan 28 14:42:13 <Glacon> Maddy: Shit I picked the wrong brain to snack on.: 5 (4df+3=+, 0, +, 0)
Jan 28 14:42:16 <Maddy> Ohhhh.
Jan 28 14:42:20 <Maddy> I'm sorry Tau :<
Jan 28 14:42:44 <Liebe> Last AP to reattempt.
Jan 28 14:42:47 <Maddy> Do it.
Jan 28 14:43:11 <Liebe> 4df+5 She narrows her eyes…
Jan 28 14:43:11 <Glacon> Liebe: She narrows her eyes…: 7 (4df+5=+, 0, +, 0)
Jan 28 14:43:25 <Maddy> 3 more rolls!
Jan 28 14:43:33 <Liebe> 4df+5 2
Jan 28 14:43:34 <Glacon> Liebe: 2: 5 (4df+5=0, +, -, 0)
Jan 28 14:43:38 <Maddy> 4df+3 mummy
Jan 28 14:43:39 <Glacon> Maddy: mummy: 6 (4df+3=0, +, +, +)
Jan 28 14:44:20 <Maddy> It reals back into its hole, trying to retreat.
Jan 28 14:44:45 <Maddy> redact
Jan 28 14:47:42 <Liebe> A clockwork apparatus descends over the port like a screen door, locking the thing's head into a vice that readjusts to be uncomfortably tight but not damaging. There's a click, and a small welders flame ignites next to the horror's skull, as it presses close. Tau stoicly looks the monster in the eyes as her intent to dissect it becomes clear.
Jan 28 14:49:35 <Maddy> It writhes and shudders. "Mages! Mages! NO NO!" in its thrashing it pulls away, injuring itself, and letting it's grey green blood mix with the waters of it's grotto.
Jan 28 14:50:47 <Maddy> the waters of it's territory recede with it.
Jan 28 14:52:50 <Liebe> Tau curses in French once, but dream logic lets her figure out the thing has retreated beyond her grasp. She slams a few more barriers over the hole, and then picks up a long neck bottle of wine, goes over to her chair by the fire, and drinks and enjoys herself until she wakes.
Jan 28 14:54:12 <Maddy> Before she does, the hole slowly shrinks, as the creature reatreats completely. This one is too much trouble for it's hunger.
Jan 28 14:55:02 <Liebe> She pauses and sends a psychic wave of thought out among her mind. It knows English. It understands.
Jan 28 14:55:15 <Liebe> "I will find you," it says calmly.
