welcome to mayfield: day 2

[Day two of whatever this place is dawns bright and cheerful. Not much seems to have changed; the carnival is still standing, the town still empty of drones, the sky still bright blue and --

-- hang on, what was that? Did some sort of crack just appear in that patch of sky?

...oh, it's gone now. Must have just been your imagination. Anyway, there's no time to waste staring aimlessly at the sky, not when there's more friends showing up! Lucky there's more than enough food to go around, eh?]

OOC: If your character damages or affects the carnival or town in a noticeable and normally permanent way, please comment here.

OPEN! If your character was on the list of characters arriving on Day 1 or Day 2, they may comment here. All questions belong here.

That it's a virtual reality sim.

[A beat passes, then Balin adds—]

You, uh, you come from a time when computers were big, yeah? You'd know about stuff like'at?

[personal profile] waiting_for_the_worms 2012-07-12 04:24 pm (UTC)(link)
A little, yeah.

[He's from the mid-1980s.]
walking_nuke: Eh, I've seen worse'an'is. (☢ MECH ARMOR ▱ Dismissive ▱ Looking Up)

[personal profile] walking_nuke 2012-07-12 05:35 pm (UTC)(link)
There's a lotta signs. Shit'at don't make sense unless you're lookin' at it like a computer program. Like'a way'a town loops. Just like an old arcade game.

An'en'ere's been things like'a drones actin' weird when'ey cut power to'a town. Actin' like robots'at were glitching or ... something.

[personal profile] waiting_for_the_worms 2012-07-12 07:21 pm (UTC)(link)
Hmm... you've got a point there.
walking_nuke: Or the glove's just chafing me again. (☢ MECH ARMOR ▱ Looking ▱ Preparing)

[personal profile] walking_nuke 2012-07-12 11:43 pm (UTC)(link)
An' if you think about it, we got people in town who got some hardcore powers. I ran into freakin' Gilgamesh'ere, said he was summoned for some kinda tournament between heroes.

This one time when'a town was pumped full of'is truth gas shit, he was boastin' about havin' a sword'at caused Earth's continental drift. Never heard of him gettin' outta here.

[Balin pauses, staring a little hard toward the fog in the distance. That happened back around the 14th of July. In a week or two, he'll have been here a full year ...]

[personal profile] waiting_for_the_worms 2012-07-13 01:09 am (UTC)(link)
Gilgamesh? He was here?
walking_nuke: No, the easy way is ALWAYS mined. (☢ MECH ARMOR ▱ Neutral ▱ Listening)

[personal profile] walking_nuke 2012-07-13 01:11 am (UTC)(link)
[Balin's attention sharply turns back to Kariya. He wasn't expecting a reaction like that. Which means ...]

Yeah. You know 'em?

[personal profile] waiting_for_the_worms 2012-07-13 02:11 am (UTC)(link)
...Maybe. Did he have golden armor and red eyes and call himself the King of Heroes?
walking_nuke: Now I'm just confused at a higher level. (☢ MECH ARMOR ▱ Headtilt ▱ Unsure)

[personal profile] walking_nuke 2012-07-13 02:20 am (UTC)(link)
[Balin blinks and looks a little unsure before he responds.]

Well—he had'a red eyes. An'is spiky golden hair.

[Gesturing with his hand as he says that.]

Thing is, he was usually a kid. Said he's got'is potion of youth'at did it. Never saw 'em wearin' golden armor, even'a one time he was his usual self.

But yeah, far as I know? He's'at Gilgamesh. "Hero King of Uruk." Said he goes by Archer 'cause of'a rules of'at tournament, but all I ever seen 'em shoot was swords.

[personal profile] waiting_for_the_worms 2012-07-13 02:58 am (UTC)(link)
Archer. I knew it. Though he was a full grown adult when I saw him.
walking_nuke: Ready and waiting. (☢ MECH ARMOR ▱ Neutral ▱ Looking)

[personal profile] walking_nuke 2012-07-13 03:33 am (UTC)(link)
You got somethin' to do with'at tournament he was talkin' about'en?

[personal profile] waiting_for_the_worms 2012-07-13 11:33 am (UTC)(link)
Yeah. I was in one of them before I came here.
walking_nuke: (Surprised)

[personal profile] walking_nuke 2012-07-14 04:59 am (UTC)(link)

[Congratulations, Kariya, you're the first Master that Balin's aware of now! Since Tokiomi never spoke with him and Kiritsugu never let on any knowledge of this stuff, or his nature as a Magus ...]

How's'at tournament even work? All Gilgamesh said was'at heroes get summoned to fight in it over somethin' named after'a Holy Grail.
walking_nuke: Eh, I've seen worse'an'is. (☢ MECH ARMOR ▱ Dismissive ▱ Looking Up)

[personal profile] walking_nuke 2012-07-15 05:13 am (UTC)(link)
Yeah, Gilgamesh said as much, too.

[Though, Balin looks skeptical. Getting a similar response from two people involved in this tournament thing ... it couldn't be any harder to comprehend than Logos Abilities, could it?]

[personal profile] waiting_for_the_worms 2012-07-15 04:29 pm (UTC)(link)
Sorry. It's pretty secretive in my world, and there are other people in this town who have been involved in it too. I went through a lot just to be part of it, and it's not really something I like to talk about.
walking_nuke: I try an' not look conspicious. It draws fire. (☢ MECH ARMOR ▱ Shrugging)

[personal profile] walking_nuke 2012-07-15 04:40 pm (UTC)(link)
[That's actually his first hint that there's more competitors involved than just summoned heroes. Up until now, if Balin were to think about it, he might conclude that Kariya was a referee or part of the staff on hand for the tournament in some way.]

[So he shrugs noncommittally.]

Guess it would be. Bringin' anybody back from'a dead's a big deal. Gilgamesh aint'a only one I've met who's from'at tournament, though. I mean, aside from you.

[personal profile] waiting_for_the_worms 2012-07-15 06:29 pm (UTC)(link)
Who else have you run into?
walking_nuke: Hang on, think I stepped in somethin' ... (☢ MECH ARMOR ▱ Looking Down ▱ Talking)

[personal profile] walking_nuke 2012-07-15 06:35 pm (UTC)(link)
Two other guys. Alexander'a Great—believe it or not—an'is guy from Ireland, uh—Koo ... Kookoolane? Gilgamesh told me about 'em bein'ere months before I actually met 'em. An', uh ...

[He looks kind of embarrassed.]

At'a time Mayfield was puttin' us in other people's bodies. But yeah. Dunno what Alex's deal was, he just said he was a "servant summoned for'a Holy Grail War." The Koo guy goes by Lancer, though.

[personal profile] waiting_for_the_worms 2012-07-15 06:40 pm (UTC)(link)
Rider and Lancer. Right. I know both of them.
walking_nuke: Staring right through you. (☢ MECH ARMOR ▱ Neutral ▱ Dazed)

[personal profile] walking_nuke 2012-07-15 06:49 pm (UTC)(link)
[Rider ... oh yeah! Gilgamesh said there were seven.]

So Archer, Rider, Lancer ... Four other codenames, right? Or classes, that's what Gilgamesh called 'em.

[personal profile] waiting_for_the_worms 2012-07-15 07:14 pm (UTC)(link)
Assassin, Caster, Saber, and Berserker. That's right.
walking_nuke: Ready and waiting. (☢ MECH ARMOR ▱ Neutral ▱ Looking)

Sorry about the delay, had to focus on something else!

[personal profile] walking_nuke 2012-07-23 04:59 am (UTC)(link)
Wonder if'a town pulled any of'a other ones ...

[Oh, if he only knew about Gilles de Rais' short stay here. That job as a construction worker kept him oblivious to most of the public phone calls about him.]

[personal profile] waiting_for_the_worms 2012-07-23 11:57 am (UTC)(link)
It'd be a lot easier on me if it didn't.
