133- Non-People Characters

Dane: [GM] Okay, it's Techie's turn now.
Dane: [Techie] Techie staggers up to her feet for her turn. "Okay folks. I'm okay."
Kyle: [Bailey Hunt] "Dun' say that Techie. Bad things happen to secondary characters that say that!"
Dane: [Techie] "Secondary what-nows?"
Kyle: [OOC] I don't consider that an OOC comment. I think Bailey has a degree of pattern-recognition at this point.
Joe: [Lord Beefstorm] "You're not going to be okay if you think just standing up is good enough! Help me punch this chick!"
Dane: [Techie] Techie sighs. "The Watch hires weird people..."
Joe: [OOC] I just want to get Techie to finish Danielle.
Ian: [OOC] ...
Joe: [OOC] For once, from me, not an innuendo. I just think it would be fun to make NPCs fight each other.
Soo: [OOC] I think you're confusing this with Pokemon.
Joe: [OOC] Nonsense. If it were Pokemon I would have caught a much lower level NPC to better manage her stats as she leveled.
Dane: [Danielle] Danielle rubs her cheek as she recovers from Beefstorm's punch. She shifts into a fighting stance and retaliates, swinging a big kick at him!
Dane: [GM] The hit connects and cracks Beefstorm across the face, smacking him hard. One moderate wound to him and he's knocked prone. She looms over him for the kill!
Joe: [OOC] And here I thought I could have dodged that. Having a one in dexterity is starting to effect me.
Soo: [OOC] When you were teaching me the game you said that was one of the most important stats in the system.
Joe: [OOC] You think this amazing skill at lying came from nowhere? I had to dump a lot of stats.
Soo: [OOC] Too bad lying isn't going to help this situation.
Joe: [OOC] Oh... Oh... HAHAHAHA!
Ian: [OOC] You do realize whatever is about to happen probably is your fault, right?
Soo: [OOC] Deep down, yes.
Joe: [OOC] Everyone! Pass your turns!
Kyle: [OOC] Wouldn't it be smarter to use our turns to ready actions or something? You know, in case whatever stupid thing you're about to do doesn't work?
Joe: [OOC] That would imply that it might not work. Just do it.
Kyle: [OOC] I pass, mostly because if this doesn't work Beefstorm is going to get kicked into lava.
Soo: [OOC] Pass.
Ian: [OOC] Pass.
Joe: [Lord Beefstorm] "You know Danielle. I thought you would have wanted to help in GR-210's ultimate plan."
Dane: [Danielle] "What do you mean you monster!?"
Joe: [Lord Beefstorm] "GR-210 was so committed to the cause of destruction that he decided to become one with his great work and asked to be annihilated, to become one with destruction itself. His last words were 'Soon Danielle will join me. She's always been by my side like I wanted."
Soo: [OOC] Beefstorm wasn't even there.
Joe: [OOC] Like she knows that.
Dane: [Danielle] Danielle looks visibly shocked. "I... he really did?" She looks aflutter with glee.
Joe: [Lord Beefstorm] He just smiles and nods.
Joe: [OOC] DECEPTION! Bonuses for using partial truths, information she wants to believe and playing along with her existing nihilist tendencies!
Dane: [GM] Success...
Joe: [Lord Beefstorm] Beefy stands up and pats her on the shoulder. He leans in close and whispers "Go to him. He is waiting."
Dane: [Danielle] Danielle nods and jumps into the lava chasm with a smile on her face. She instantly disappears into the red glow.
Kyle: [OOC] That's a pretty short death description for a character who was around for a while.
Dane: [GM] Joe just talked a character, who was clearly unwell emotionally, into committing suicide by exploiting the unresolved tragedy of losing the only character that mattered in her life. How's that for a eulogy post?
Ian: [OOC] I really feel like we need to protect Techie from Joe somehow. Is there like a PETA for NPCs?
Joe: [OOC] Most people call NPCs Non-Player Characters. I prefer 'Non-People Characters'. I feel it better describes their place in this system.

  1. I was thinking in earlier posts that this was a missed opportunity to get Danielle back on-side, but this is even better.
