Juvenal's Journal



  • JuvenalJuvenal BabyGroot
    was gonna go back down to check on paco
    fight breaks out
    husband attacks young dude
    "what did you do to my wife"
    dude says he doesn't know what husband is talking about
    separate the fools
    husband says he went to get drinks
    saw wife talking to the dude
    got drinks, turned back around
    wife was gone

    paco finally shows up
    petey is turning the ship around?
    virgil talks to bartender
    suddenly a wave
    suddenly a sandal
    okay so wife went overboard
    florpsock goes overboard to check
    with a rope tho
    florpsock sees a trail in the water?
    petey turns to follow

    okay now dad is gone
    another dude says the kid saw her dad go down the rope
    okay now that dude is snatched up in the air
    "Around his neck is a rope and a claw that is attached to a metallic arm that is attached to a flying ship"
    ship is shiny
    shaped like a guitar pick
    you know, because we're bards

    ship leaves
    another ship shows up
    drops a yellow orb
    which falls through the decks
    petey screams for us to check on petunia
    we run downstairs to check

    there's the orb
  • JuvenalJuvenal BabyGroot

    wait is the orb the sphere
    paco punches the sphere
    florp whales on it with an axe
    virgil casts unseen servant (pindar?)
    ginger backflips into it
    horace leaves

    so now virgil is floating
    ginger is now inside the sphere
    florp and paco have their hands stuck in it
    "Without a word or emotion on his face, Ed walks straight into the orb."
    who the fuck is ed?!?
    "Nelly, concerned about Ed, grabs his arm to stop him, but is pulled into the orb as well."
    nelly is here too?

    seriously, who is ed
    one sec
    oh yeah, ed is jwill
    he's still with us?

    florp pokes his head into the sphere
    paco jumps in
    homer+pindar pee on the sphere
    horace is up top, there's pandemonium
    petey is zigzagging
    a silent ship in the distance about to attack
    horace heads back downstairs and the gods sweep him into the sphere
    florp goes into the sphere

    paco see three aisles
    walls are rusted lockers
    door at end of each aisle
    something glowing at the end of the middle aisle

    florp opens door and sees papers
    grabs them and they turn to dust
    everything is covered in dust
    florp finds a twinkie
    the yellow orb is aging everything

    so yeah, there's the basketball orb
    with the small skeleton
    with the necklace
    it's petunia
    fuck you jdub
    paco doesn't get it
    steals the necklace
    yup, that's mickey mouse

    horace backs away
    florp hits the bball wih an axe
    the sphere fades a little
    ginger inspects the orb
    a bunch of gears
    gears in the middle move slower
    " It's almost as if this orb is....affecting time."
    oh fuck me, it was already explained
    i can't read:

    "It dawns on you that is why Petunia died. Not from any force. But because she had been down here for years. She starved to death. On her way to get ice cream. She died. Her flesh rotted. And here lie her bones. For who knows how long. Now that you think of it, how long have you been in here? "

    ginger punches the orb, the sphere dims
    florp readies a swing
    ginger readies another attack
    horace fires two xbows

    and that's where we're at
  • JuvenalJuvenal BabyGroot

    xbow bolts hit the orb
    orb shatters
    everything in slo-mo

    we float towards the sphere
    except gosling
    horace saves him

    outside the sphere(orb?) everything speeds up
    we're flying
    land on the shore
    ship parts everywhere
    petey seems dead
  • JuvenalJuvenal BabyGroot

    petey def dead
    wait, he had a necklace too?
    also a piece of paper
    which horace takes and reads:
    "Land in Mecca. Near red flag."
    okay there's the flag
    so we're in mecca
  • JuvenalJuvenal BabyGroot

    walk into woods
    towards la quinta
    something big bashed up the forest
    under a tree, a body

    horace lifts the tree
    like a total hero
    while paco loots the body
    like a total darren

    rusty piece of machinery
    ffs more necklaces
    it suddenly glows white
    crawls up paco's arm
    goes around his neck
    and stops glowing
    lol paco an alien slave now

    florp sees the body and pukes
    nelly suggests we continue up the road
  • JuvenalJuvenal BabyGroot

    paco gets +2ac from his choker
    nelly leads on
    oh look, a small shack

    old man
    dead dog
    dog's name was cher?!?

    paco hears a noise
    three peeps come out
    nelly says they're monstars

    they call us THE ONES
    three of them
    sam (leader), tony, and cap
    they tell us to leave
    "You’ll fuck everything up. Just like usual.”
    "You’re the ones who wiped an entire settlement off the face of the Earth!"
    well yeah, we did fuck that up

    sam attacks paco!
    paco's slave collar protects him!
    monstars are stunned
    cap says "arrived tech"
    they pull out their weapons

    horace the hero saves the day again
    fires a warning shot
    then gets a blade under sam's chin
    tells them to drop their weapons
    they do

    they back away
    sam's parents lived in that settlement
    “Look, we’ll be on our way. We are already running late. I’m sure we will see each other again.”
    running late?
    late to what?
    also: “As far as what’s going on around here, all we know is that the Arrived don’t come here.”
    they leave

    try to talk to the old man
    he grumpy
    blames us for trying to fight even though it was only monstars that wanted to fight and we avoided it
    at least he starts talking

    he found the place while running from aliens
    says they don't come around anymore (same thing monstars said)
    thinks the beast keeps them away
    doesn't think the beast is evil
    doesn't blame it for killing his dog
    it's "Just a wild thing"

    told the man that we were here to investigate an "Arrived Monster"
    maybe the monster is the beast, maybe not
    if so, then the old man is wrong that it keeps the arrived away
    since they're the ones developing it
    at a minimum, we're investigating so if we just leave, others will come to investigate in our stead, so there's no way he's getting his wish that everyone just fucks off

    and now there's a roar up the road
  • JuvenalJuvenal BabyGroot


    and then a bunch of katy perry gifs
    okay, finally heading up the road
    smelling blood?
    we step he bushes and peek into a clearing
    buncha old bungalows, one wrecked
    wrecked by the beast
    6' tall on all fours, 1200 pounds
    slimy firm red snail skin, forked purple tongue
    is this basically a dragon?

    and here we have the problem that half this story is here and the other half on discord, so ugh

    so we get a surprise round
    but don't have enough active people
    got sock to clarify what character he's playing
    got darkus active again
    jdub did a rolecall
    jwill had the damn channel on mute
    okay, finally have everyone
    sorting out spells
    looks like we did this:
    [1] Horace --- [A] bane, [B] inspire prancy
    [2] Florp ---- [A] faerie fire, [B] inspire gosling
    [3] Prancy --- [A] vicious mockery (or faerie fire), [B] inspire paco
    [4] Gosling -- [A] poison spray (or wildshape), [B] none
    [5] Paco ----- [A] burning hands (or ice knife), [B] none
    starting here http://www.darkusblack.com/ffa/discussion/comment/14482/#Comment_14482

    we get everything in, but then the beast notices us
  • JuvenalJuvenal BabyGroot

    we get some more hits
    beast charges, does some cha save thing
    horace (me) finishes the beast and has some sort of vision thing
    sees through the beast's eyes
    the man, the shack, the dog (cher) attacks the beast, the beast kills it
    next scene: the arrived are blasting a machine into the ground, beast hunts them down and kills them
    next scene: monstars in the trees, beast notices, does nothing

    moral of the story:
    "You realize at once the beast never attacked you. You attacked it first. And even its swipe in defense towards you didn’t even come close. And the Beast didn’t attack Cher. It attacked the Beast. Or rather to the rear of the beast. Something behind it."

    and that something was the beast's kiddo
    and now it's sniffing and whining around its mom
    that you just killed

    and now here comes dad.
  • JuvenalJuvenal BabyGroot

    there are arrived running away from the dadbeast
    dadbeast has a crest along its back
    almost about to catch the arrived, but hears its baby's cry (FUJDUB)
    You all turn to see the small beast standing on top of its mother’s body. It has realized that it’s mother isn’t asleep. It’s world has been crushed. The only caretaker it’s ever known. Gone. It senses the high probability that it will not survive and cries out again.

    old man suddenly appears and says hey, get in this bunker
    nelly says fuck that, let's go to the beach and runs off
    hey folks, it's a plot choice!
    we vote, darkus splits the tie, bunker it is

    old man calls to nelly
    nelly turns around, does some betrayal processing, runs for the bunker
    he's gonna make it, but baby beast gets him
    dad closes in, old man shuts the hatch
    guess that baby was a fucker all along

    he points to two tunnels, then a third
    [1] back to the settlement (quit mission)
    [2] go to monstars (bonus mission?)
    [2] oldmanhome (side mission?)
    another plot choice, folks!
    we mostly vote monstars, jdub asks what our classes are (lol) and now it's a heist!
  • JuvenalJuvenal BabyGroot

    we sneak in an hour
    hear voices
    stuff about upgrades
    and arrived tech
    rumors about all-stars nuking cities
    oh hey that was us
    apparently there's an arrived tech vault DINGDINGDING
    oh wtf "heading towards the exit. Talked to Cap and she said she ran into a few AllStars while she was out. Just want to make sure the idiots haven’t snuck through old mans tunnels."
    go away

    over a week later, we finally have a plan
    which is basically try charm, then sleep, then just knock him the fuck out
    jwill goes wildshaping down the tunnel as an albino mole(rat?)
    sleep works, but now the other guard is coming
    okay, he's asleep too
    and now they're tied up and searched

    not sure of the precise chronology here, but at some point the guards are dragged out the tunnel and then jmole shows up with a map up his butt q4rSLLN.jpg
    and then he also has a note with codes and stuff

    thought we moved the guards before going into the guard station, but it looks like we went in the guard station first, got the paperwork, and are just now about to move the guards:
    [X] FLORP(sock) ----- help horace
    [X] GOSLING(jwill) -- <PRIVATE>
    [X] HORACE(cactus) -- drag charlie out of the tunnel
    [X] PACO(mittens) --- grabs the other guard and drags him towards the tunnel entrance also, keeping a bit of a distance between him and Horace. 
    [X] PRANCY(darkus) -- help paco
    current status: the above actions are pending

    we drag the guards to the tunnel entrance
    they wake up
    we interrogate
    one is named charlie
    other guard says they just got "the upgrades" and are trying to used the aliens' weapons against them
    okay other guard is named bret
    horace threatens bret, bret says the code is 2519
    apparently the code for the security door that holds "valuables"
    horace kills bret, paco threatens charlie
    charlie says the code is 2682 <---SO ONE WAS LYING
    charlie tries to escape, horace kills him
    loot the guards, find a note on both with the code 2682

    suddenly, DOG ATTACK
    paco hit, prancy hit
    gosling saves prancy
    paco kills 5/8 dogs
    oh there are guards too
    i mean three (of them)
    horace kills a guard
    "3 more dogs" meaning 8-5 or are there 11 total now?
    dogs kill paco?!?
    guard kills gosling? or almost does?
    wtf bingbong who? i think we mean florp
    florp heals paco
    prancy cast sleep on the dogs
    "all 5 dogs" so confused
    started with 8, paco killed 5, that's 3 left... then "3 more" came so that's 6... how did we get down to 5?
    gosling explodes what
    all guards dead, "only five sleeping dogs left"
