Inspiration struck and I made more art. This one's a "what-if" where Rezcow bores the hands to death while he's stuck in the floor.

Figured I should put some stuff here for anyone who's interested, some details of what happened in the first three sessions I was in before streaming started, and what happened in the session between Session 1 and Session 2 on Horikawa's twitch channel.

Also have some crappy drawings I did of my character.

My first three sessions
---Session 1---

The characters are in the middle of staging a breakout at an underground labour camp prison, new characters include a stereotypical pirate called 'Captain Jimmy' who won't shut up about dubloons, Hanna the Fawriel and McKayla the Goomba.

Van just so happens to be in the same wing of the prison, we manage to open the doors and start rallying people but the session ends with the place being put on lockdown and everyone desparing as apparently when this happens they just keep the lockdown in effect until everyone starves to death.


---Session 2---

We find Hanna's parents outside some kind of torture room, they seem really weird and disoriented, Hanna gives them a diary detailing a job against the ASMT bank, they say only Van and Hanna can go as they are 'alive', referring to rezcow and jakeyboy as dead for some reason.

Parents jump on us and teleport us to a creepy room with an altar, they tell us to join them and after we refuse Van nearly gets killed and Hanna gets knocked unconcious trying to protect him (as they don't attack her, only gang up on Van), the details of what happens after that are unknown, as when Rezcow and Jakeyboy finally break into the room, Van materialises from the altar with no memory of the events.

We use the altar to get to the surface (by somehow using its energies to power the freight elevator) of the prison and are greeted by scores of dead bodies. At this point we're in several groups of mainly prisoners led by one or two named NPCs and characters.

Eventually dimensional popping happens and Hanna's parents appear, along with nasty demon creatures. (hundreds at that)


---Session 3---

We fight Hanna's parents, Van gets illusioned to see people as demons and fires blindly into the crowd, managing to take one out (He asks everyone who isn't a demon to raise their hand, several demons and Hanna's parents raise their hands... ).

Jakeyboy taunts the father to make the stonemind appear after an invitation to join, the father 'eats' himself (or rather his stonemind-y energies implode him). The mother gets absorbed into the giant blob monster while chanting to summon stonemind.

Rezcow goes to get prison trucks to run over the blob monster, the prisoners manage to overthrow most of the little demons. Boolina is over in the carpark and offers to help us escape after saying we screwed up royally. She drives off with rezcow.

Jakeyboy gets picked up by the blob, he shoots the mother in the head point blank and blows her head off. The prisoners swarm the blob to wrench Jakeyboy free, most of them dying in the attack. Jakeyboy finsihes him off with an ice bullet.

We eventually mop up the remaining demons, and end up at a bar to hideout. Rezcow comes back and tells us there's no vaults in the bank, and there's an obelisk that links the stonemind to the realm he wants to destroy.

McKayla uses her contacts to find out that we can get into the bank if we desposit something into it of value.

Session highlight : Boshi (Yoshi NPC with us) keeps showing up and shouts "Not in my house" a lot before attacking, though he makes a habit of accidently mowing down our own guys.

Admittedly not my best summaries, blame me being a newbie at that point :P


The missing session!

Van goes to the bank for his interview, the head janitor is an extremely critical and cynical guy who immediately takes a disliking to Van's more upperclass persona of Gerald Fasaad, saying "Janitors shouldn't talk all fancy like that".

Before the actual interview he puts Van through three quick cleaning trials.

Trial 1 : He takes Van to the toilets and tells him to clean it, they're spotless already but Van thinking there's some kind of trick to it cleans it anyway, this was the wrong thing to do as he makes it slightly worse.

Trial 2 : There's a sculpture of King Charles made out of shrubbery, he asks for it to be trimmed and fixed, Van does a passable job.

Trial 3 : In the main lobby, Van dusts the artifacts on display there, nearly knocking over one that has a value of 9 billion coins in the process.

Satisfied enough the head janitor takes Van for his proper interview, he asks typical questions, when asked why Van became a cleaner in the first place, his answers don't quite convince him and he starts to get annoyed at the lies.

"I come from a long generation of persuers of excellence!", which eventually devolves to "My father was a really messy guy, it was up to me to pick up the slack"

Van is told to call back tomorrow to see if he got the job, and that two other applicants are to be considered as well.

Returning to the others, Van tells of his subpar performance and that the other two are probably going to get the job, so we all plan to find out who the other applicants are so we can 'convince' them to not take the job if they do.

A plan is made to 'phone freak' (phone hacking with frequencies) the reception phone of the bank so we can listen to see who gets the job, the league of janitors refuses to let us use their phone as they can't risk being traced back, so we go to Hannah's friend Lily (a lovefrog) and borrow her phone, we get the correct frequency but hit too many alarms to stay there, so we leave (without telling Lily the cops will be on the way) and go rent a hotel room.

After a little bit we hear the head janitor talking to the receptionist, saying one Jessica and William are going to get the job. So we plan to wait until tomorrow and keep listening for them to call the bank, so we can hopefully get their full names to find out where they live.

upbeat tune

The stone, it called to me
(and now I see the things the stone has shown to me)
A rock that spoke a word
(an animated mineral, it can be heard)
And though I once preferred a human being's company
They pale before the monolith that towers over me

And now it is your turn
(your turn to hear the stone and then your turn to burn)
The stone, it calls to you
(you can't refuse to do the things it tells you to)
And as the screaming fire engine siren fills the air
The evidence will vanish from your charred and smoking chair

Trust the stonemind to get its own themetune before any of the characters. :P

Right so we had a session last week, it started pretty late and kinda sudden so it wasn't streamed, it takes place after Stream 5B.

Adele comes to meet with us, she says she's been questioning McKayla's toasterbot friend (the one from the SWAT team, not the one she had a date with). She wants McKayla to take him up on his offer to go to King Charle's ball since he has tickets, with the intention to assassinate him, she says they left certain doors open so he could escape.

Rezcow gets a letter about the exchange to get his kidnapped friend back, though Adele tells us the dance is in a mere 12 hours, so it'll have to wait for now.

McKayla goes to meet the SWAT toasterbot, she dresses up, though nowhere near as elegant as before (just a skirt and a buttoned blouse... in maroon). The toasterbot is flustered when they meet, saying he's had the worst day and that he was 'bravely fighting for his country' while he was captured, which he quickly corrects to being undercover to save face.

He gives McKayla some useless information about where he was being kept (a dark room with a chair, table and chains), and tells of his heroic escape of finding a trap door to the sewers.

McKayla feints happiness at him escaping and tells him she'll take his offer for the date, though she embarrassingly doesn't actually know his name.

He introduces himself as 'Captain Biff Buffington', Captain of the ASMT police force. (McKayla tries to compliment him by saying he certainly is 'captainly' material, he agrees)

They head off to King Charles' Castle, passing through multiple guarded checkpoints, they come to an area with eight doors and behind the first one is a large ballroom. (McKayla clings to him on the way, filling him with more compliments such as "hoping his impressiveness rubs off on her", that particular one excites him)

Inside the ballroom are a myriad of races, not just ASMT residents but sphinxes, chucks, goombas to name a few. There's a group in the corner around someone, quite possibly Charles himself.

Caesar's sister is at the party, McKayla has a brief chat with her about the party, clearly showing she's never been to something this high-class before, she bids her leave saying she has matters of state to attend to, and she goes to join the crowd around King Charles.

McKayla and Biff Buffington dance a waltz together, during which she tries to look around to see anything useful, she doesn't get much but she has the feeling everyone at the party is 'really' happy, but trying to hide why.

McKayla endulges in some drinks and excuses herself to the toilets, which are large and very impressive, complete with mini-spa and a bathroom attendant, she tries to see if there's a way to get us in through there but the windows are far too small.

McKayla looks around the other hallways, on approaching the kitchen she is guarded away by a guard.

McKayla goes back to the toilets and does some semi-convincing fake vomiting while contacting the others via a communicator attached to her outfit, we're all waiting in a car about 20 minutes away from the castle, we discuss how we're going to get in and come to the conclusion that we'll dress as deliverymen and deliver something. (something big enough to transport Rezcow in a box.)

McKayla returns to her date and shares her idea to liven up the party by bringing in an arcade machine, she asks if that would be possible, he says we'd probably need King Charles' permission for that and that he's reluctant to approach him, he's clearly frightened of the guy and says he 'pops heads for sport'.

McKayla tries to convince him to go talk to the King anyway, it looks like he's approaching him... and then he ducks behind pillars and makes his way to the toilets. Annoyed, McKayla decides to go to the King's group herself.

He's surrounded by mostly extremely rich looking people, they scoff at McKayla's dress almost immediately saying that maroon is totally last season, she retorts saying that she's wearing it ironically to look like a commoner, they believe that and hit it off.

When asked who she is she makes up that she's the daughter of a rich import/export buisness owner, the rich woman makes her own assumptions and determines she's the daughter of 'Steve Lei', McKayla just agrees.

She approaches the King and tells him it would be fun to prank the party by including an arcade machine, King Charles says that arcade machine are contraband and have been banned for some time, McKayla says that would just enhance the joke, and that her father has one (that earlier today was confiscated).

He laughs at the suggestion and says it's a fine idea to shake the party up, he has one of his assistants take her to the library to use the phone to arrange it.

In the library McKayla pretends to call her dad while talking to the rest of the team on her hidden communicatorThe car group start to discuss possible plans when inside the castle, Rezcow wants to be in the arcade machine box and jump out at Charles and kill him then and there, he asks Jakeyboy as his long-time friend what he thinks and he's fairly reluctant that the plan is good, he then asks for Van's opinion since he's the new guy, he replies that Rezcow should do whatever feels right to him.

Jakeyboy : What the heck Van? Stop being his not-friend!

Van questions Adele about the plan, asking her why if this is her master plan to take down the head of the stonemind, that it's just being entrusted to our small group, without proper backup. She says she can probably spare some people, but is hestitant.

We eventually come to the conclusion we'll have Jakeyboy go in, borrowing the invisibility cloak and using his own time-stop device to take out charles, we'll have a sleeping gas bomb in the crate to try and knock out everyone, giving us time to possibly locate the obelisk (which she just kinda tells us about now) and retrieve it before they find a way to destroy it. (Rezcow also contacts Jessica to see if she can assist, she doesn't really confirm if she can)

With that, Rezcow uses his new craft ability to fix up and alter our bank heist inspector uniforms to look like fancy deliverymen, after doing a quick recon of the castle (mostly to make sure Jakeyboy and Rezcow can get near the castle, with it being all stonemindy and all) we aim to commence the plan!
