Ms. Zann and the Anthropophagus

Apr 12 23:25:52 <TroyL> The LAV rumbles along the road, being very… LAVish? Hahahahaaa! Yes. Pun. But seriously, it's going down the road.
Apr 12 23:26:08 <Ragazzo> Sleeps rubs his aching chest.
Apr 12 23:26:13 <Maddy> As they drive, there's nothing but the soft sound of rain on the LAV. It's pitch dark as they get away from Prince Rupert.
Apr 12 23:26:20 <Pemander> Finn rubs his aching pun organ.
Apr 12 23:26:20 <Maddy> Sound based perception.

Apr 12 23:26:46 <Tom90deg> Zoe hears nothing
Apr 12 23:26:51 <Ragazzo> That's a four
Apr 12 23:26:52 <TroyL> 4df+3 Troy is up in that turret. He can probably into ears.
Apr 12 23:26:53 <CROM> TroyL: Troy is up in that turret. He can probably into ears.: 5 (4df+3=+, 0, 0, +)

Apr 12 23:26:55 <CROM> Liebe: rollin: 4 (4df+3=+, 0, 0, 0)
Apr 12 23:29:12 <Maddy> Everyone but Zoe and Fin hear a far off viol. The notes are…odd, some how confusing to your ears, like they're not notes you'd ever heard before, yet it's this strangely beautiful.
Apr 12 23:31:18 <TroyL> Lament frowns… «Anyone else hear weird music?»
Apr 12 23:31:20 <TroyL> "Scraw."
Apr 12 23:31:23 <Ragazzo> Sleeps covers his ears. "Mnnmnnnope."
Apr 12 23:31:32 <Tom90deg> «Nope»
Apr 12 23:31:49 <Pemander> "Nothin'."
Apr 12 23:31:54 <Pemander> "Oh, uh, woops."
Apr 12 23:31:54 <Maddy> As they keep driving, it gets a lowder.
Apr 12 23:31:57 <Pemander> «Nothin'»
Apr 12 23:31:58 <TroyL> "Huh. Must be my imagination."
Apr 12 23:32:19 <Liebe> J remains silent, but closes his eyes in thought.
Apr 12 23:32:29 <Tom90deg> "Wait… Maybe?"
Apr 12 23:32:54 <TroyL> «Guys. I might be having a stroke.»
Apr 12 23:32:58 <Maddy> Soon everyone can hear it, sounds like its coming from just off the road.
Apr 12 23:33:07 <Pemander> «Nah, I hear it now.»
Apr 12 23:33:14 <TroyL> Myr slows the LAV.
Apr 12 23:33:17 <Tom90deg> "I hear it, sounds like violin music."
Apr 12 23:33:20 <Ragazzo> "I hear it, but it's too loud, and amazing to be normal."
Apr 12 23:33:21 <Maddy> Viol
Apr 12 23:33:29 <Pemander> «No way dude, that's a viola.»
Apr 12 23:33:32 <Pemander> «I would know.»
Apr 12 23:33:33 <Maddy> Viol
Apr 12 23:33:40 <Maddy> You all suck at instruments
Apr 12 23:33:46 <TroyL> Lament will swing around the turret, looking. «You guys… I think it's a cello.»
Apr 12 23:33:54 <TroyL> 4df+3 He's sweeping the area.
Apr 12 23:33:54 <CROM> TroyL: He's sweeping the area.: 4 (4df+3=+, +, -, 0)
Apr 12 23:34:16 <Maddy> It's definitely coming from off the left o the road, too dark to see.
Apr 12 23:34:29 <Maddy> There are moveable lights on the LAV however.
Apr 12 23:34:29 <Liebe> "…A viol, actually. Much too high pitched for a cello."
Apr 12 23:35:17 <Tom90deg> "If you say so."
Apr 12 23:35:24 <TroyL> «Someone get on the lights. Someone with good eyes. Not Finn.»
Apr 12 23:35:47 <Tom90deg> *Skitch* "I'll do it."
Apr 12 23:38:09 <Tom90deg> Zoe climbs on up and hits the lights.
Apr 12 23:38:34 <Ragazzo> Sleeps fusses with his hair.
Apr 12 23:40:19 <Tom90deg> 4df+6 Spotter perception
Apr 12 23:40:20 <CROM> Tom90deg: Spotter perception: 8 (4df+6=+, +, 0, 0)
Apr 12 23:40:20 <Maddy> As Zoe moves the light to where the music is, she first sees a skinny woman, madly playing a viol in the darkness and rain.
Apr 12 23:40:42 <Pemander> «I totally have good eyes.»Apr 12 23:41:26 <Tom90deg> «Got someone»
Apr 12 23:41:38 <Maddy> Then as she pans further, anyone looking sees http://after-action.wdfiles.com/local--files/character%3Aanthropophagus/anthropophagus.jpg minus the slaves, it's man catcher poised to strike the woman's neck.
Apr 12 23:41:44 <Maddy> It's frozen, unmoving.
Apr 12 23:41:52 <TroyL> Lament trains the gun on her… «Finn. Grab some help, then get out there!»
Apr 12 23:41:56 <Tom90deg> «A female, playing what looks like a violin, and HOLY SHIT!»
Apr 12 23:42:05 <Pemander> "GO TIME!"
Apr 12 23:42:16 <Pemander> Finn jumps out of the LAV as Enkal turns into a large spiked mace.
Apr 12 23:42:29 <Pemander> No hesitation! Finn strikes the creature in the chest-mouth.
Apr 12 23:42:29 <TroyL> Lament is afraid to use the gun, for fear of shooting the fuck out of that viol!
Apr 12 23:42:39 <Pemander> 4df+8 Energy transfer, tagging brash
Apr 12 23:42:39 <CROM> Pemander: Energy transfer, tagging brash: 11 (4df+8=+, +, 0, +)
Apr 12 23:42:41 <TroyL> You're still in the LAV.
Apr 12 23:42:49 <TroyL> Wait. No.
Apr 12 23:42:49 <Pemander> *Jumps out of the LAV*
Apr 12 23:43:05 <Tom90deg> Zoe follows Finn, getting ready to try to port the new girl out of danger.
Apr 12 23:43:27 <Ragazzo> Finn slithers up to peek out, whimpering becuse ow ribs.
Apr 12 23:43:41 <Pemander> Woah man I didn't know Finn could slither.
Apr 12 23:43:42 <Pemander> Badass.
Apr 12 23:43:43 <Ragazzo> Sleeps does
Apr 12 23:43:47 <Ragazzo> shut up
Apr 12 23:43:49 <Maddy> The woman, now that you're closer, looks like she's been playing for days. The remnents of a fire and a small camp are strewn around.
Apr 12 23:44:10 <Maddy> Just as you reach her…she collapses
Apr 12 23:44:19 <Pemander> "Oh shi-
Apr 12 23:44:23 <Pemander> Finn says in mid-swing.
Apr 12 23:44:40 <Maddy> The music dies, and the mosnter resumes its motion, missing the woman as she slumps forward on her instrument.
Apr 12 23:44:49 <Maddy> Attack of oportunity!
Apr 12 23:45:13 <Liebe> Jay steps out of the LAV, taking his old rifle with him, but does not advance, considering the situation.
Apr 12 23:45:33 <Ragazzo> Sleeps peeeers, also considering.
Apr 12 23:45:39 <Tom90deg> Zoe dashes forward, wrapping her arms around the new girl, and porting to the side, getting the collapsed girl out of the way
Apr 12 23:47:09 <TroyL> 4df+7 BOOMBOOMBOOM! ((Whenever Finn is done hitting it and Zoe has teleported the woman and Sleeps is done peering))

Apr 12 23:50:43 * TroyL predicts that: "The monster's anus is violated terribly."
Apr 12 23:53:28 <Maddy> Finn hits the monster, staggering it but knocking himself back a little. The creature is heartier than it looks. Luckily, getting knocked back, got him away from the bullets from Troy.
Apr 12 23:53:51 <Ragazzo> Sleeps watches the battle intently.
Apr 12 23:53:55 <Liebe> "Hit it below the collar!" The doctor barks, as soon as the gunfire dies down.
Apr 12 23:54:11 <Liebe> AP to apply Weak Point aspect to monster.
Apr 12 23:54:12 <Maddy> Troy hits it in the mouth and gore flies. The anthropophagus, however, jues kinda seems PO'd. Now it's his turn.
Apr 12 23:54:44 <Tom90deg> Zoe pulls the girl away from the fighting, into the LAV.

Apr 12 23:57:48 <Maddy> Zoe is struck with a burning pain on what can only be described as her soul. Suddenly, there are a thousand disjointed and broken voices screaming in her head. Incaped one round.
Apr 12 23:58:21 <Tom90deg> Zoe falls to her knees, wanting to cry out but unable to with her wrapped head.
Apr 12 23:58:32 <Maddy> The voices are in pain. They want help, they want to die, they just want.
Apr 12 23:58:52 <Maddy> 4df+3 The man catcher comes at Fin now.
Apr 12 23:58:53 <Ragazzo> Sleeps glances down, and worriedly coils around both women. "D-docto-Jay!"
Apr 12 23:58:56 <CROM> Maddy: The man catcher comes at Fin now.: 2 (4df+3=0, -, -, +)
Apr 12 23:59:16 <Ragazzo> He shakes Zoe, then the strange woman.

Apr 12 23:59:52 <Tom90deg> Zoe wraps her arms around her head, trying to focus on anything but the crying noises
Apr 13 00:00:04 <Maddy> He dodges, doing o, getting a better look at the horrible thing.
Apr 13 00:00:11 <Pemander> Finn steps out of the way and gives the mancatcher a light tap with Enkal and bows. "Try again!"
Apr 13 00:00:13 <Ragazzo> Sleeps quickly pulls them both the rest of the way into the LAV.
Apr 13 00:00:30 <Maddy> Your turn.
Apr 13 00:00:46 <Liebe> J falls to one knee and covers the snake with a crack of old rifle.
Apr 13 00:01:07 <Pemander> Finn tenses up and prepares to put all of his strength into a blow.

Apr 13 00:02:28 <Maddy> Oh he hits that weak point. There's a horrible sound fromt he beast, sounds like Jay hit…something like a lung maybe? Its a horrible sucking noise.
Apr 13 00:03:25 <Liebe> He sniffs, and quick retreats into the LAV with Vasuki.
Apr 13 00:03:38 <Maddy> Anyone else this round?
Apr 13 00:04:45 <TroyL> Lament is waiting for a round before shooting the fuck out of it again.
Apr 13 00:04:47 <Ragazzo> Sleeps is fretting over both women. "M-miss chantili, are you ok?"
Apr 13 00:05:01 <Maddy> Alright.

Apr 13 00:08:40 <Maddy> It wheezes, trying, in futility, to hit Finn with it's mancatcher again.
