robbing a bank


summary

jojo: everything looks really weird
havi: that's called bad vision i'm sorry
joaquin: ARE YOU COLORBLIND


ireth (in philip’s body) starts to strip. philip (in ireth’s body panics and tells her to stop) jojo falls unconscious. havi runs over and starts touching jojo (in havi’s body) caranthir begins shouting for meekus to fix this.

havi: WHO. YOU'RE ME
jojo: no i'm ME
havi: WHO IS ME
havi: WHO IS THIS. WHO ARE YOU

tanum assures us there’s probably a way to fix this. we just have to find some cure stones. tanum asks havi to pull out his magikindle. tanum had uploaded floor plans to a bank in new chasm. it had been his next mission with the cult. he insists we should all go steal the stones.

jojo: everything looks really weird
havi: that's called bad vision i'm sorry
joaquin: ARE YOU COLORBLIND
jojo: you're REALLY blind
havi: i'll take my BODY BACK IF YOU DON'T WANT IT

everyone trades their items back to their original owners. havi notices it’s a lot harder for him to carry his own bag. (dahlia’s strength is a -1 modifier)

jojo: HOW AM I GOING TO CARRY MY STUFF
tanum: i can carry your stuff!
jojo: are you sure?
tanum: yeah
jojo: ... are you going to take any of it
tanum: havi, i wouldn't do that.
tanum: wait--
tanum: jojo-- it doesn't matter, listen--
tanum: i am SO CONFUSED

havi fries ro rmemeber what he knows about cure stones. he knows they are one-time use and made of crystallized dragon tears. there are at least 7 in existence. we aren’t sure if they’re all at the bank. havi suggests maybe this is a minor curse and doesn’t need such powerful magic. havi doesn’t understand why anyone would do this.

tanum: throughout time there have been several mages whose power vastly exceeds others ... lots of them have gone mad
tanum: and lots of the ones who go mad like to create artifacts like this?

jojo asks if tanum is still cursed and suggests they get a third stone for him. (aw). philip feels embarrassed in ireth’s armor so changes into something more comfortable. they make their way back up to new chasm.


ireth (in philip’s body) casts mage hand and braids people’s hair. ¬†jojo asks lia if her “heart thing” is okay and tells her what happened at the shaman’s. he tattles on tanum and also mentions that jojo was able to talk to roderick and collette and is relieved they weren’t mad at him.

lia: jojo. why would they be mad at you?
jojo: well i mean ... i couldn't help them
lia: you took out more people than any of us did
jojo: yeah but you--
lia:and i'm the one who pushed you into that situation before you were ready anyway.
lia: jojo we both know whose fault this really is.

havi & joaquin awkwardly shuffle further away from this conversation.

lia: jojo. thank you for telling me, but i need a little time to process this.
lia: TANUM.

lia and tanum fall back alittle . lia talks quietly and calmly to him while tanum looks smaller and smaller as they talk.

ireth: so i ... slapped myself? with magic
philip: *bursts out laughing*
ireth: I CAN SMACK IT WITH YOU TOO
philip: *still laughing*
ireth: i don't know how to use your spells!
philip: oh, well, of course you don't! you can't just do magic - that's what sorcerers do!

philip teaches ireth to use her new magic as havi chides jojo for tattling on tanum.
havi: did you have to tell her
jojo: she was going to leave!
havi: i know but he wasn't in his right mind-- i feel like it could have been left out?
jojo: well then how would i have brought it up?
havi: you could have just-- you could have just said "we ran into a necromancer--" 
jojo: but we did
havi: but you didn't have to name him! you could've-- whatever i guess it's fine

clint gives joaquin a letter and tells him to read it when he has time.

havi: so you and lia jojo: uhhhhhhh jojo: UHHHHHHH no? havi: … alright jojo: friends? we’re friends. jojo: jojo: you and tanum? havi: havi: havi: just friends jojo: so– the same thing! just friends. cool

clint and lia leave. jojo asks when he’ll see her again – probably the wedding!


they decide to scope out the bank. joaquin fakes that he wants to open an account. ireth attempts to sneak around. havi knows the stones are very small and generally red.

havi: we would get thrown out immediately, i've dealt with this kind of stuff before
ireth: you have?
havi: a little
ireth: you've stolen from a bank before???
havi: not a BANK
ireth: what did you do???
havi: NOTHING it doesn't MATTER we're not TALKING ABOUT THIS HERE
havi: this is a bad place to talk about this!!!
ireth: how did you rob a bank???
havi: I HAVE NEVER ROBBED A BANK
ireth: then what did you rob???
havi: WHY ARE WE STILL TALK--
ireth: you obviously have history with this sort of thing! i've never robbed anything before, I'M a good person, i thought you were too!
havi: just a couple things!!!
havi: it doesn't matter WHAT i've STOLEN all that matters is the CURRENT OBJECTIVE

tanum teaches jojo how to cast sacred flame on the walk back.

havi: tanum helped! ask him!!!

tanum: because you ASKED me to!!!
