  1. Artificer "Good work!," he called out to Muirne, whom he (vaguely) recognized from Claremont. As he walked towards her and the Aliengator, he traced a few sigils in the air with his tiny trident, and the great ice wall rapidly sublimated back into water vapor. "Shadowbourne, yes?" He held out his free hand to her, "I am called Artificer." I know her, or rather, of her. I do not know the other two. Well, three, counting the creature. My people would say strangers bring danger, but that is not necessarily the case. He looked up, first to Nocturne (though he did not realize it was her), and gave her a quick salute, then up higher to the Man-Bird. "You there! You and this Aliengator both arrived here at the same time. I take it that you and...," he glanced down at the felled creature, "it are not allies, but did you come from the same place? And do you intend to return? And to take that creature with you?"

  3. Horrorshow While Davyd had not gained many of the psychic abilities of a Grue, he did have the potential for it, which Ms Grue had been helping him tap into. First was communicating with animals, which he'd put to good use earlier while helping on the dairy farm. But he'd eventually figured out how to communicate with any intelligent being. Not true telepathy, but more like an instant translator, working around the limits of spoken language to get to the true intent of a speaker's words. And so, as a giant red-and-black striped bee flew towards the Professor's time machine, it did so knowing the last bit of what (one of) the pilots of the giant mech announced. They think Bee might be one of them? That could be useful! HorrorBee turned from the machine and flew to Bee's side, and bowed slightly to her. "Mizztrezz, they addrezz you in the Queen'zz tongue. Are theez are your brotherzz?"
  4. In order to make sure the Refs accurately count all your IC posts and award you the due amount of power points, please post with a list of all the threads in which your player character, NPC or sidekick posted IC this month (including the News forum). Also list any threads which you are GMing. GM posts count as double and can be assigned to whichever of your characters needs a 'push'. This topic will automatically close on the seventh day of the following month (i.e., August 7th, 2021 at Midnight EST). When you make your list, post a link to your first post for the month for each IC thread so we can jump right to it. When you start a thread, make sure IC is the first tag and topic prefix of the In Character thread, and OOC is in the first tag and topic prefix of the Out Of Character thread. It's not required, but additional tags including the major players and locations are viewed as a courtesy. Please list your threads in alphabetical order. Please clearly note any threads in which you are both player and GM/running an NPC. In threads where you are both player and GM/an NPC, please be sure to mark each post so we can tell who it should be allocated to. Please list your threads in a timely manner. Extending the deadline one week into the following month is already a grace period. If you've done any "extracurriculars" -- artwork, HellQ, 20 Questions, NPC, vignettes, guidebook pages, etc. -- please be sure to list them along with your active threads. For more information on ways to earn power points, see Character Advancement and Awards in the House Rules section of the Guide. Post counts should be formatted similar to the following: To make clear how many posts from rollover and GM posts are assigned to each character. Failure to comply with these guidelines may result in being nibbled to death by ducks your post counts being postponed or skipped completely. If you missed the deadline, see this thread.
  5. Horrorshow gets a mighty 1d20+3: 20 [1d20=17] for initiative!
  6. Horrorshow A human hand sprouted from the end of one of Blobl!Davyd's tentacles and waved at Brobee, while his other appendages continued looking and listening and sniffing... but to no avail. Well, this isn't working out at all as I'd hoped. But surely there's something I could- oh! Oh! Okay, wait, first I've got to.... The Davyd!Blob shuddered as its many pseudopods suddenly withdrew into it. A moment later, Davyd's face appeared on the surface of the blob, a face as big as his torso, and looked down from his perch on the storage vat. "Hey! Hey, Bees! If I could shapeshift into one of you, mimic your, uh, a-bee-lities, would that let me help patch up the busted tank? Or to suck up all the spilled honey and spit it back out somewhere? I mean, uh, if you consent to letting me copy you, that is."
  7. Horrorshow will help with the honey removal/retrieval... somehow.
  8. Horrorshow's using his Oozey form -- which I don't think I've ever used in a thread until now! -- along with his Shapeshifting to gain infravision, scent, and ultra-hearing. Hopefully those will help him spot something useful! ... but not with an 1d20+1: 8 [1d20=7] on a Search check....
  9. Horrorshow Davyd leaped from Super-Bee's back as she set down among the honey tanks, clinging to one of the great wax containers. Hey, without that Marcus guy here -- or any other adults -- I can really cut loose! He transformed in mid-air, going first to his true form of a vaguely humanoid form of muddy crimson flesh, then looser still, striking the side of the storage tank with a wet SPLUT. His form oozed down slowly for a moment, then stopped and reversed, flowing up and moving around the tank in a clockwise manner. Numerous pseudopods spread out, some clinging to the tank and pulling him along, others waving out in the air, sprouting eyes, cones, and other, less identifiable organs as he scoured the area for clues with senses no human ever had. Okay, this is all stone and wax, so any scent of metal might be the Professor's machine. And if some part of it's still active, it might be making sounds of a frequency outside normal human hearing. As he searched, his mind kept wandering to the processes by which bees make honey and wax, and how he might could replicate them.
  10. Horrorshow gets 1d20+10: 21 [1d20=11].
  11. Horrorshow Davyd bowed his head at Stesha's request, looked down to Magenta and gave a shrug, then smoothly shifted his form. The rear bovine half seemed to walk into his front half as his four legs melded into two, and his fur morphed into layers of fabric. Soon he was Davyd Palahniuk, Ukrainian-American teenage boy, again, wearing a causal outdoor outfit which he thought the time traveler might find familiar: brown high boots, tan breeches, a loose single-breasted blue tweed coat over a mustard yellow vest/waistcoat, with a blue bowtie and a blue soft felt hat. "Yes, ma'am." He fought the urge to take on any gamefowl characteristics when Marcus made his "cock and bull" crack, and climbed aboard Super-Bee. Against his better intentions, though, his nose did begin curving and sharpening into a beak, but he quickly realized what was happening and raised a hand to cover it.
  12. Horrorshow He thinks I'm a... well, maybe I should go along with that, for now. Seeing me shapeshift might be the straw that breaks his sanity. And, hey, a chance to practice my acting! Now, how did that bit go? Ah, yes... The minotaur raised its right hand, which sported a thumb, two thick fingers, and a smaller third finger. "The Sayers of the Laws tells us of Dickens and Poe," he began, his voice rumbling deeper than any human baritone, "and of the fantastic tales they wrote." He took a step forward, "and the Sayers of the Laws also tell us of the story of Rip Van Winkle, who traveled far into his future, though that was not of his own, hrm, his own doing. But you say you came to this place," he held both arms out wide, "to this time, through science? Through a machine? A machine that you built?" He let out a booming laugh, and placed his hands on the spot where his human and bovine halves met, "astounding! This place truly has wonders to match the horrors it has witnessed!"
  13. Horrorshow has one of those skills! Knowledge (Popular Culture) check -- 1d20+10: 29 [1d20=19] Also: I'd honestly forgotten that Sanctuary's apocalypse was (seemingly) Grue-connected. Awkward!
