    [F21 - Tier 1 Boss] Siege the Day

    The girl anxiously circled around their mark as the others attacked. For one agonizing moment, An thought the weapon of war was going to break free of logic’s constraints and leap off the ground and quash them all while everyone was still within range and focused entirely on offense. Or it was going to explode. Or regenerate. Anything was possible when some bloke’s poisonous goop was somehow dealing damage to the wooden structure. She wasn’t complaining. She was just kind of really amazed. DoTs really are strong…! There was an opening in the line of attacking players and she quickly moved to fill it in. An wouldn’t realize her weapon had activated differently this time until she stepped back to assess the damage. Deep red flames, from the tip of her blade down to its hilt. They appeared to engulf her sword hand, but they were harmless to the player wielding it. When she swung, the effects detached from her weapon in uneven shadowy blobs and shot forward to taint the trebuchet.

    "Thanks — for sticking around," she said. The girl had seated herself on the ground somewhere behind him, her work set in a neat little line in front of her. Two large spheres for the eyes, a set of extra small ones to form the line that would be its mouth, and the remaining divided into equally-sized lumps. "N-not that I thought you wouldn't, it was just," she paused, tried to find a way to voice her thoughts on their earlier conversation, but words seemed to elude her for a moment and Alkor had already finished putting on the snowman's scarf. "Nice? Really nice and fun." She stood, walked over to switch with Alkor with the molded coal piled in her arms. First, she slightly flattened one of the larger spheres between her hands and patted it in place. She worked downwards, from the eyes, to the slightly crooked smile, to the buttons on the center of its chest. An finished it off with a slight touch-up to the other player's contribution and stepped back. The snowman didn't show any signs of wanting to fall over. "Look here!" Andromeda immediately called out to Alkor. "It's done. I guess you know how to build one of your own now?" Their finished craft stood happily in the middle of the plaza's winter wonderland, one of its stick arms tilted slightly upwards so that it looked as if it were waving at the players still coming through the teleport gate. Maybe it wouldn't last long. Snowmen hardly ever did. And the game could reset the area as soon as the event ended and the entire square would be wiped clean come the next day, bearing no indication that there had been anything there at all, or perhaps someone else could just bowl it over before that happened. But she'd already preserved her picture of the scenery in a perfect frost-tinted memory -- of admiring her yearly tradition beside the calming presence of another player, her expression lit with a hopeful smile. @Alkor 2 | SP 200 | col @Andromeda 2 | SP 200 | col Voucher for Demonic Light Armor Cursed / MIT / MIT / Random Unique Enhancement This item is bound to Andromeda, and cannot be traded for any reason.

    “Good work–!” She didn't know what compelled her to say that rather than a simple 'thanks,' but before she could fret overthink internally die contemplate how uppity that sounded, her sights had snapped from the cute martial artist to their evident lack of moving targets. An nearly gasped – maybe everyone here was actually competent? The last bits of digital dust faded, showing the T1 players the path they carved open with their combined efforts. And the woman in red was already charging. ...Wait, what's a rapier supposed to do against a war machine? Poke holes into it? Won't Legacy's thin blade just snap in half? "Please don't snap in half," she murmured earnestly. The silver-haired player doubted she could ask Arabelle to slay another hundred zombies again. She adjusted her grip, ran a few paces forward, and soon her rapier was coated with a dark flame-like aura as she rained her strongest [Sword Art]'s thrust against the trebuchet's wooden frame. An stepped back as soon as her attack finished, sliding one foot behind the other, and she'd slowly circle the contraption with her weapon and shield at the ready.

    A small player darted past her guard. “H-hey!” An angry furry followed right after, spinning the blade of her giant shuriken. “Wait, guys--” The realization that the first was a kid only occurred to her when the girl’s curved sword bounced against the metal of her enemy’s shield -- barely enough to do damage, but more than sufficient to pull the mob’s attention towards the smaller player -- and the sight of it nearly sent palpitations through An’s heart. What was she doing here?! She was half-glad the furry managed to draw its Hate away from the other, but as far as HP went, the phalanx was still standing proud. Suddenly clueless, An stood with her shield still half-raised as the warrior reached forward… and missed. Then the players were swarming the defense again and she forcibly shook herself out of it. “I’ll leave that one up to you!” Her attention shifted to the spear-user who instantly cleared a large chunk of the shielding troops, and An hesitantly jogged forward, speeding up to a run as soon as she spotted the last full HP Phalanx left standing. She had absolutely no idea what went through her head earlier, but let’s just poke this one and hope for the best! --- [ooc: I reiterate what I said on Discord and my previous post. Please do not attack Phalanx17 unless your DMG output is enough to kill it. Andromeda has a 50% chance of proccing 9 Thorns on the enemy's round.]

    She was close. So close. This was something An absolutely could not leave unfinished. And though they'd gotten pretty far, a snowman was just a... random stack of snowballs unless it had a face. But if she and Alkor ran off to poke around the nearby shops for the materials she'd left behind, their unfinished snowman would be left completely alone and she wasn't sure if-- Wait. "Oh, um, I think it's better if you stay!" She always felt a little nervous about turning down offers; An made a completely unrelated gesture of clapping her fist to her other hand as she spun around to face he other player, already bouncing on her heels. "So you can guard it. You know, save someone from an accident that might end up with them knocking it down?" Like her on any bad day. A sheepish smile formed on her face at that, and she would speed off as soon as he began to respond, assuming the tone of his question earlier implied he was at least up to sticking around to complete it. An waved her hand and called out over her shoulder, "Thanks, and sorry for the trouble!" Disaster averted. As she walked up and down a street, she idly thought she couldn't have done this had someone not been present to stay with their work. An found the nearest general stall and slammed her hands down on the counter's surface, doing her best impression of an important person who was running on a short schedule... instead of being an absolute nobody... who also happened to be running on a short schedule. "I need a whole bunch of stuff!" Her gaze roamed over the displayed wares. "...um. Do stores even sell these?" Look, she wasn't very good at it-- Minutes later, she ran up to Alkor with her purchases bundled in her hands. "S-sorry to keep you waiting. You probably know what snowmen look like when they're done, right? And which ones go where?" Grinning, she unloaded a top hat, a scarf, and a carrot and two sticks onto him, leaving her with a small bag of coal. "You can do those. Don't worry, it's easy!"

    Dried up lake (?). Blood red crystals (??). A giant trebuchet with a flaming payload that could probably melt them in an instant (???). And lines of enemies huddled in a close formation, determined to throw off the clueless noobs from the objective long enough to melt them with said mechanism (??!!). Words. An – and her single-target rapier – was starting to sweat. Nope. Nope, nope, nope, nope– As the bravest of their inexperienced lot charged forward, the absolute joke of a half-tank was rooted to the spot, sinking slowly into the thoughts flying through her head. The trebuchet was the biggest threat. Or perhaps the troops also? Was it too early to make assumptions about how the forces’ strengths were balanced? Yes. She was overthinking. She was overthinking. Her instincts were screaming at her to run away from the literal fantasy army that was strong enough to taint Floor 21's Lake of Reflection in less than a day, but she couldn't because she knew it was cowardly, so she anxiously ran through all that she should already knew for a way out that didn't involve running. Even though An internally bonked herself on the head for never buying any of Arabelle’s debuff crystals which she could have used to check the trebuchet’s target circle if she got close enough, she knew the phalanx absolutely needed to go down first. If they had the ability, she wouldn’t have thought of attempting to bypass it. Because not everyone could. Because it was essentially going to Divide the Team. So it was a matter of offense over defense. This was like a time challenge in a regular video game! Except the worse case assumption was that they were all going to die if they failed. An… felt a little more at ease with her earlier understanding, but she didn’t want to think any more about the latter. And when she finally drew her blighted rapier, she wondered if the others did. A scythe-wielder (!) halved the shielders’ HP with an AoE. Basuke (!!) and two other single-target damage dealers instantly decimated their targets’ health bars. Basuke, Katana, Rapier, and Scythe were obviously DPS-focused – with Scythe, assuming she fully understood the implications of holding back, likely being a bit lower level-wise than the rest. So where did An stand in comparison to the rest of them? Where did the enemy troops? Her feet carried her forward. The damage their pointy sticks dealt in a regular attack? Unknown, but was she going to run away when everyone else was fighting? “Leave this one to me!” she declared, preparing her shield. “I can wear it down!!” Tempered malevolence trailed purple after her rapier’s visage as she stabbed straight through a shielder’s defense.

    [F1 - R5 Merchant] Pandora's Wares

    Eh? Yuki was here again. Thankfully, she hadn’t actually followed through on her promise of kissing her last time; An would have just turned into a blubbering mess as soon as the woman stopped before her counter. “Um. Yes! Th-thanks so much!” However, that didn’t mean her face wouldn’t instantly warm upon hearing the compliment. Was luck even something she should be proud of? It’s not like it was in her control, right? An cracked a small smile as she accepted the item. Today, it was a single order to identify a katana. A [demonic] katana. ("Whoa...! Where did you even find this?") Yuki had also attached a consumable that gave a much-appreciated buff to her odds. But, look– the liquid bubbling inside was a very suspicious and unappetizing green, and it was aptly named a [Witch’s Brew]. An looked at the vial. Then An looked at the buff in an open stats window. … … … Hahaha, no– she totally hadn’t forgotten that it was common sense that there was a menu option that allowed a player to ‘consume’ a buff without actually… consuming the item itself. An totally did not have a very long pause where she tried to figure out how to politely ask Yuki if there was something else that looked less like it could kill her instantly from food poisoning. As the last fragments of the vial dissipated at her fingertips, she pulled up the katana’s identification window. Four slots, here goes nothing–

    They were going to fight something. Okay. –What. Tanabata was nice and peaceful. It was all about hope and wishes. But was the calamity that would rend apart their memory of the children's floating paper train, a culmination of everyone's’ efforts chugging away beneath a night sky illuminated with the star festival’s last fireworks, the system’s way of saying that this was all futile so long as they were still trapped within Aincrad’s bounds? The rest of the players who were strong enough to stand appeared to already have gotten acquainted with the fact, and An felt she was lagging very far behind. A little group had loosely huddled together amid the confusion, and she was fortunately close enough to the edge that she heard one of the more outspoken players’ attempt at making the bunch into less of a dumbfounded scattering of individuals and more of a somewhat functioning team once whatever was coming at them… came at them. What in the world was ‘innate power?’ But, okay. Builds. Builds. Builds. “Oh, I’ll go next!” An would blurt when no one else participated, but the pause that followed was probably long enough for the others to think her brain had encountered an error and decided to reboot mid-sentence. Stick with her here. She was a DPS. –Because [Rapier] was the only skill she had leveled. –But also, she had no DMG or ACC enhancements to speak of. On her main equipment set. Switching would reduce her MIT, and any reduction to her MIT equals a higher probability of getting squished. –So she was left relying on the DoTs that activated by chance on her weapon and her shield. –Oh, right! Her shield. So that made her a bit of a tank, right? She even had more MIT than an average T1 player and everything. –But also also, she had zero taunting capability. And again, no ACC. How was she supposed to sum that up-?! My boat, her mind helpfully supplied. “It’s actually, um, complicated,” An finally said, her face heating up. But she had to put something together now that everyone was looking at her, no matter how much of a disaster came out. “I-I can do everything but healing, but since I don’t have enough levels, none of the things I do are actually effective!”

    Um. Did someone set off too many fireworks at once…? One moment, An – and her boat – was admiring the colors that painted the night sky in beautiful patterns, and the next, she – and her rented boat – was falling into a tear in the fabric of reality into whatever lay beneath. Wait, that was just Floor 21. “OOF!” Betelguese and Rigel’s combined powers (??) may have ensured a smooth landing, but even the gods (???) could do nothing to prevent a still-disoriented An from stumbling around and then eventually tripping over herself once her feet touched the ground. “Aaagh, god, what?” She still hadn’t entirely processed the happenings, but An sensed enough danger to pull herself up as fast as she could. The ground spun beneath her – but she knew it was just all in her head because everyone else looked fine, if not a little fearful, and she pushed through the murk in her mind to bring down an inventory window and swap into her battle equipment.
