"Not if one knows how to use their anger to their advantage." Cloud chimes in.
"I'm not sure... I've never tried to cure a sickness except for poisoning..." Terra replied.
"Can't hurt to try." Cloud replies to Terra.
OoC: @FPS I'd be lying if I said I wasn't enjoying this Predator.
"Well I've seen that happen. I used to spend some time around a barbarian. I never liked the tatic to many ways to slip up while your angry."
Long fang spoke disdainfully to the other man. "I would agree to anger being less then useful in choosing your actions, but anger has kept me moving for days when any other reason for continuing quickly grew useless. it can also help you propel one final strike when your muscles were screaming for rest. It has saved me many times, and the only problem that would come from it is letting it color your decisions."
ooc: @salty Glad to see you like him.
OoC: @Wacky You did see my last post, right?
Crystal shook her head. "That's not a wise idea, trust me!" She said slightly worried. "There are things even I can't control"
Tao grinned at Nova. "Good job Nova lady, Meow" She said as she lent against her. "Tao might have to borrow you for her cooking, Meow" She said jokingly.
Nova started eating the fish, taking small bites. "I... It really does taste good."
Jean started eating fish with the others.
"Oh yes I've heard of that before. I once walked through a desert for days. They were dragons. So many blue dragons there. There was no water they all destroyed it. The only thing that kept me alive was determination to live" Kalin shuddered at the memory of that
OoC: Sorry, was playing Baloon Race.
Scout shrugged, "Well, You'll never get anywhere if you just stay to yourself, believe me."
"why?" Long fang asked. "Do you lose control? Does someone else take over? Do you grow horns and start trying to gore people? Believe me, after a few days with all these people here, its easily believable, whatever you do in anger."
"Alright then..." Terra said as she stood up and walked towards Cloud, thinking about if she could really cure him or not. "I can't really do anything unless I know what's wrong though... What's making you sick?"
"I disagree. Relying on others makes you weak. To be truly strong, your must accomplish you goals with your own strength."
OOC: Hello everyone. Debugged some quizzes and worksheets along with using the Gram-Schmidt Orthonormalization method on Mathematica.
Where have we gone/What has happened in the last 24 hrs?
"It's the bobbing up and down of this ship. It's motion sickness." Cloud explains to Terra.
After quite a bit of investigation, Axel was able to determine that the boat was, in fact, not on fire. Then he just sat back down and groaned, wishing the boat would hurry the hell up and get them to where they needed to go already.
@Slenn: We're gonna go kill a guy and get a magic book.
Or at least we would be doing that if Outis would deign to move the plot forward.
"I believe she has uh magic spasms. If a magic user gets to an extreme sense of anger than they will flood the entire room with spells. It's more common in sorcerers than most other magic users"
Scout shrugged, "Yeah, but sometimes, you can't handle things on your own. You need other people to help. Take me, for example. I'm fast, but I'm weak as all hell. Grab a sun on a stick, go with the pyro, and BAM, we beat the fuck out of everything in our way.
OoC: @Slenn We're on a boat.
And I don't know quite where we are, but apparently it's very cold.
OoC: the owner of the mansion we stayed at showed up, explained that everyone one earth died, and we were given the mission of hunting down the man who did it and a book of pure knowledge he brought along. We sailed down to washington, were we caught a plane, before crash landing in chicago, where we stole a boat which is currently sailing down the east coast where our target is at, in Gettysburg Virginia.
"Then you are weak. Allies in battle are welcome, but you should become stronger, so that you do not need them."
"yeah...the first 2...not the third tho" Crystal said to Long Fang. "I'm just glad I don't start growing horns and stuff when I'm angry...."
"Tao said fish was yummy, that's why Tao caught some Meow" She said to Nova grinning.
Nova continued eating her fish, eventually showing how hungry she was.
OoC: Shit, I have to go for dinner. Sorry guys, back as soon as I can.
Scout shrugged, "Everyone is weak, in some way. You need someone to cover your back, you need a well-balanced team."
She gets up, and begins walking around the ship, idly spinning a baseball cap in her hands.
Kalin put back his chain mail on. Alric wandered off through the ship. Tristan continued to stuff pretty much anything in his pockets. "While we are sparring. How about we have a nice match uh mind flayer thing" He said twirling around his mace a bit
Samus walked over to her computer in her ship, where it notified her that the external cameras had picked up the others moving. She had the ship lock onto the energy signature of Nova's weapon (which she obtained while scanning her earlier) and kept a lock-on towards the group on the boat.
Long fang was a little dismayed at the girls lack of control while angry. "well I suppose its something to use when the worst comes, but perhaps a better discipline would help as well. Is it difficult for you to sit still?"
@Slenn: Oh? If that's so...
Nova's weapon always tried to repress a signal being sent back into space and... Nothing. Whatever signal that it sent into space seemed to just disappear and nothing is sent back. Curious. But a cut off point was always in midorbit around Earth.
Nova eventually finished the fish and set aside the bones. She got up and started swinging her swords at imaginary targets.
"Oh... Well, I'm really not sure if I can help you. I'm not very proficient with White magic." Terra replied, then thought for a while. She really had no idea how to help Cloud as she only ever healed wounds and flushed poisons out of the body. "Maybe if I try this..." Terra raised her hand, wich began glowing with a feint green light as she cast a Poisona spell. The light flowed into Cloud, but did nothing as he wasn't poisoned. "Did that help any?"
Cloud waits for a moment... "No, not really. I guess it was a bit much to hope for. I don't think I could have done anything, even with materia." He said, after a moment.
"Heck I'm only using it if my life depends on it" She muttered. "I can sit down perfectly still thank you!" She said to Long Fang.
Tao rested her head against Nova. "Tao thinks you enjoyed that Nova Lady" She said smiling, her tail swished side to side.
OOC: @Rosh. Her ship wasn't in space, it was still near the mansion. So, does that mean her ship can still detect the energy signature?
The little merry group walked around the ship for something to do.
