[center [b The plot? A monster that was supposedly made as the worlds sin in monster form. "Sin" has been around for hundreds.. even thousands of years. This monster goes more commonly as Black Devil. From its scales is beast that comes to life. "Sin Spawn" the devil's shadows. The world covered with beast and scorned by humanity's sin. "Machina" the machines the mankind had that once helped indulged us in our sins has now been banned. In religious pursuits was found "magics" a gift from God for our repenting nature. "If mankind is clean of sin than will they be free of it" so mankind has found a way to combat sin. "Summoners" those strong enough to use the spirits. The "Aeons" to combat the Black Devil. The summoner must go to every temple to gain each and every Aeon to grow that power. So that they may summon the Final Aeon to defeat Sin. Thus taking the life they used for the people. Every 15 years the Black Devil returns and no one is sure why.]]

[center [font "Times New Roman" [size12 Nun was relieved when they made it to the port without further conflict. After the run in with the goblins, he was concerned they may have stumbled into a high difficulty zone. Some MMOs, like [i Grapplez], put some very difficult mobs just outside the starter towns to keep you on your toes. For the first half mile, his combat boots squished with every step. His AP dropped with the distance traveled, the game mechanics starting to reveal a bit more information to him.]]]
[center [font "Times New Roman" [size12 [#A2C4CF "Lady Rosemond, please be careful what you wish for. I’m sure our next destination will be filled with trials and tribulations.”] He smiled lightheartedly, hoping that this wasn’t an unintentional event flag. [#ec2bca [i Knowing my luck, there is going to be some massive sea creature circling the island or something.]] Glancing back at his blade, he wondered how well he’d be able to contend with a sea creature. Following Rosemond’s lead, he approached a vessel being driven by an NPC. Eyeing the distance between it and the dock, he estimated it was a bit too long of a hop for Cherish.]]]
[center [font "Times New Roman" [size12 The gears turning in his head, he came to a wonderful conclusion. [#A2C4CF “Lady Cherish, prepare to board.”] Grabbing her by the waist and shoulder, he swung her off her feet and then tossed her to the boat. Upon releasing her, he came upon two very distinct realizations. First, he was a lot stronger than he thought. Secondly, his angle of release was a bit high, higher than he had intended. Watching her sail through the air, he leapt aboard the boat with an apologetic exclamation, and attempted to rush after Cherish.]]]
[center [h3 Time To Head Out Again!]]
[center [b Aelina had washed off standing straight up with a confident gesture. Hands placed proudly on her hips before raising her right arm forward.]]
[center [+gold Forward march!]]
[center [b She giggled playfully, she had seized her shaking of Nun when he seemed all right. She flashed him a bright and bubbly smile patting him on the back. The boats weren't much farther away from the springs.]]
[center [b "The party travels the last remaining mile. consuming 10AP from each member! Unless some members are willing to carry others on the way!]]
[center [b Arriving safely at the boat Aelina had pouted crossing her arms firmly.]]
[center [+gold Aww man we didn't get into any super tough fights on the way here! That's way too easy!]]
[center [b The boat was hauling nothing but NPC's it seemed. With an oddly dressed merchant as well. Aelina had decided to hop right on in but was stopped by a male attendant wearing attire.]]
[center "I'm sorry unless you are with a summoner or on the list you must pay a ticket for a seat on this voyage. We are currently heading to Drevin.]]
It seemed no one wanted to berate her for the killing in cold blood, which was a relief. Although she didn’t know whether the cause stemmed from a lack of the mood, out of politeness, or they truly didn’t care. Taenya truly hoped that the cause was the last reason, she did want to keep the possibility of joining open and such things as grumbling prevented that.
And the first response seemed promising, the squishy mage Cherish supported her choice and even letting loose a joke about the other line’s slowness. The muted one also seemed not to care, the lack of any hand show or in-game message showing disapproval supporting that assumption. Taenya nodded with satisfaction, happy that her little indiscretion wasn’t considered one at all.
Cherish mentioned some spring which in the real world would’ve sound like your usual snake oil salesman or saleswoman, but in this game such springs did exist. It would do them good in visiting these springs, some needed the hp and ap restores while she herself badly needed mp restoration. Without any mp Taenya simply became the weakest and most useless puncher and punching bag either solo or in a party.
No trouble occurred on the spring trip, which meant arriving to a magic pool of water in peace. Taenya preferred kneeling, sipping a single hand into the magic water and sighing as she felt the mp jump back to full. Definitely felt satisfying having a full mp gauge for fire.
After everyone had enjoyed their dips in the restore-all pool, Nun approached her. Seemed Cherish wasn’t the only one wanting a powerful spell caster in the group. [#3333ff “ I’m guessing I’m joining your merry group then, might as well make friends here. And I’ll make sure to communicate better in the future”].
[center [font "Times New Roman" [size12 Upon being pulled to his feet, Nun was ambushed and violently jolted by an assumedly worried and relieved Aelina. Fighting the waves of nausea threatening to over take him, he gave her a thumbs up. [#A2C4CF "Lady Rosemond, I am conscious once more. I would greatly appreciate it if you would stop shaking me. I am glad that you all thwarted our foes, even after I fell."]]]]
[center [font "Times New Roman" [size12 Nun let out a relieved groan as he flopped into the spring. No more combats on the way over, and so he didn't need to remain so alert. Any enemy foolish enough to engage them in the spring was either a fool, or so strong they couldn't win anyway. Time was flying by, though rather massive chunks of it were blank or missing for him. [#ec2bca [i It's already 5am? I guess being unconscious makes time fly by. I should have a word with Kharis.]] Shaking his head as he floated face down in the shallow water of the healing springs, trying to focus his head.]]]
[center [font "Times New Roman" [size12 Getting himself out of the springs, he made his way towards Kha, no, Cherish, he noticed her summoning. The grace she displayed in performing magic brought a sense of peace, even as the massive and majestic "Valh" appeared, and dried everyone off. Checking himself quickly, he found little ice crystals on his armor and cloak, even as it dissipated in the heat. [#A2C4CF "Lady Cherish, you did wonderful back there."] Getting closer to her, he dropped his speaking volume. [#A2C4CF "It warms my heart that you made it through the battle unharmed, Lady Cherish. Your support was invaluable."] He then flashed her a smile, a telling look in his eyes that flashed with relief.]]]
[center [font "Times New Roman" [size12 Turning towards the newest accompaniment of the group, he bowed at the hips with a flourish. [#A2C4CF "Lady Taenya, I could feel the heat of the blazes you conjured into being from our other conflict. I cannot imagine mere goblins surviving such an inferno. We could use a powerful spellcaster, such as yourself in the party. Just need you to communicate better in the future."] R1M3H34RT looked busy with his inspection of Valh, so Nun didn't wish to distract him.]]]
[center [http://rp.eliteskills.com/r.php?r=153037 ]]
R1M3H34RT pulled Nun to his feet and returned his thumbs up with one of his own. He then stretched himself out and cracked his neck with a couple of small twists. Seeing Nun's health bar reminded him to check his own, which looked equally as dismal.
Looking to Aelina, R1M3H34RT put up a hand and made a circle with his fingers, and a walking motion toward it with the index and middle finger of his other hand. He stomped about while holding his hands like claws, changed his left hand to one which pantomimed a mouth, and then started fake-punching the mouth hand with a clenched fist. Thinking for a moment more he held up one finger, pointed to Nun and himself, then drew a cross in the air with his finger and then pointed a thumb upward several times.
A sudden gust of wind drew his attention to Valh. Keeping a decent distance in case of potentially hostile AI, R1M3H34RT walked around the sizable bird and examined the modeling. No stone left unturned.
[google-font http://fonts http://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Dancing+Script:400,700&display=swap&subset=latin-ext] It was so nice having everyone able to walk away after a fight. It didn't start off that way, but they safely made it back to the spring without any more incidents. Her AP was almost nonexistent, so she didn't even fully step into the spring. She plopped down right next to it, and put her feet into the water.
[i [Dancing+Script [size18 Oh my gosh, this spring is amazing.]]] Keep each arm straight, Cherish pressed her palms against the ground beside her and leaned back for a moment. This was the first time she really needed to replenish her stats. She had felt completely drained, but almost instantly, she could do standing backflips if she wanted to.
Cherish could even feel the difference in her magic power coming back. It was similar to the backflip thing, but with an internal energy ready to escape through her fingertips. That, and she wasn't completely drained before getting to the spring. Maybe tired? She was getting magically tired before. It was a new type of feeling. She didn't lose any health, so everything was back to normal. And then some, thanks to her leveling up.
As she stood up outside of the water, she looked over the rest of her party. Everyone seemed healed up and ready to continue as well. She didn't really want to look at Kev– she meant Nun. He should have believed in her regardless of what actually happened in that fight. Yes, Taenya could have waited. No one would have been knocked out and they probably could have explored the whole cave. Yeah, she should have waited. However, Nun of all people didn't believe in her. Whether they dueled or fought it out, he should've understood that she could've done it. But he didn't. [i [Dancing+Script [size18 Would that have been any different if Arthur was there?]]]
Although Rime couldn't talk, he seemed ready to head out. Before she could check on the rest, Aelina was already asking where they were going next. Cherish answered to both Aelina and Taenya, [#28c37f [Dancing+Script [size20 [i "We were on our way to a temple on another island called Drevin. A Warrior friend is already over there. Are you two okay with that?"]]]]
After they answered, she shifted her feet and noticed her boots were still drenched. [#28c37f [Dancing+Script [size20 [i "Oh. One more thing. Before we leave... "]]]] She stepped off to the side and almost whispered a chant, [#28c37f [Dancing+Script [size20 [i “Im nall- an cin, Valhalla”.]]]] Cherish summoned Valh in his mobile form. [#28c37f [Dancing+Script [size20 [i "Hey Valh. Can you help us out here?"]]]] Although two of their members were encased in metal armor, Valh generated a gust of wind that dried everyone off pretty quickly. Her boots no longer squished when she moved around. Being dry helped make traveling so much more comfortable. [#28c37f [Dancing+Script [size20 [i "Thank you Valh,"]]]] Cherish said as she gently ran her hand along his feathers. [#28c37f [Dancing+Script [size20 [i "Okay. Now I'm ready."]]]]
[center [h3 One False Step]]
[center [b Aelina and Taenya had high fived one another. Aelina felt a little better not being the only new member to this team. Aelina set them up and Taenya knocked them down. She really neglected offense and opted for an almost pure defensive route even compared to most Knight classes. She was afraid maybe it wasn't so smart but after meeting this party? Maybe it wasn't such a bad idea.]]
[center [b Aelina ran over and shook Nun and Rimeheart.]]
[center [+gold LIVVVEEE!!]]
[center [b Cherish had revived the two and Aelina had offered a bright smile patting the two on the shoulder.]]
[center [+gold Nice work holding the line you two! Musta been hard being outnumbered and stuff! I can't believe we leveled up in one fight!]]
[center [b Cherish had agreed with Aelina to head back. Going back would be risky if they somehow ran into any mobs? They'd be in trouble. However it seemed luck was on their side! The AP drain was harsh but luckily at the end? Was a familiar healing springs! The team was able to stop and rest. Aelina was panting for it took HP/AP for her to walk that far meaning she ran out of AP walking back. It was tough she actually felt tired! What a strange feeling.]]
[center [b Though she felt relieved soaking in the water before shooting back up. The energetic knight was in no mood to linger too long in the water a second time! No she was ready to go charging in to the next adventure!]]
[center [+gold So where are we heading next?]]
[center [font "Times New Roman" [size12 Darkness, and a sense of floating in nothing. A sense of disappointment came over him, as he had once again been knocked out in a single blow. Emitting a heavy sigh, he couldn't help but wonder how the rest of the party was holding up. R1M3H34RT would have to hold his own until the rest of the party could finish up on the other flank. Dammit. Hold on there, Rime.]]]
[center [font "Times New Roman" [size12 Before long a bright piercing light broke the darkness. Before his eyes, it took the form of an avian. [i [#ca50f2 Why is there a bird? This is new.]] Feeling pressure on his chest, he was lifted from the darkness to the breath taking view of R1M3H34RT's hand and mask. Letting out a pained sigh, he took his compatriot's hand, and was hoisted to his feet. Checking himself over for bullet wounds, he noticed the bird disappearing into Cherish. [i [#ca50f2 Valh?]]]]]
[center [font "Times New Roman" [size12 Shaking his head to clear it, and stumbling a bit, he gave Rime a thumbs up before stooping over the retrieve his blade. With a bit more stumbling, he noticed his flashing health bar, and looked upon group before giving them a thumbs up. Walking was a tad difficult at the moment, and he didn't feel like he could vocalize without vomiting.]]]
Rousing from his rather uncomfortable nap, Rimeheart sat up and held his head. He felt like he had his head in a vice. When his head finally stopped spinning he realized that he'd been revived, though in a less than desirable state. Still, Rimeheart looked up to Cherish and gave her a weak thumbs up before standing up.
He looked at Taenya and walked up to her, first pointing at her and then opening and closing his hand like a talking mouth before gesturing to himself and the rest of the party. Funny, that the only mute person in the group was the one telling others to talk to the group first. Other than that, he didn't press the issue. He looked back at Nun, who was next in line for revival and when he awoke he offered Nun his hand to help him stand up.
[google-font http://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Dancing+Script:400,700&display=swap&subset=latin-ext] The went pretty deep into the cave before encountering anything. However, when they did, the enemy made their presence known. Scratch that, enemies. There were 6 goblins, again. Yet these ones were different, more personable and… overall more talkative. They probably could be reasoned with, probably not. She couldn't take that chance. The whole party needed to get through this alive and connected, and Taenya was included in that even though she wasn't listed as a member. She was in their group. That's all that mattered. No more losing people.
Instead of dragging things out and draining themselves, they separated the enemy 3v2 and 3v3. They split up with Nun and Rime in the first one with Cherish, Taenya and Aelina in the second with the leader. When the fight started, Cherish felt helpless all over again. If she brought Valh out, he'd take all of the EXP. It would guarantee a win and achieve her goal. Yet, they needed to level up. She had the power to save everyone, but in a way that would stunt them. She wanted to help. She had to watch Kev and Karp be knocked-out. She had to watch Jae become so disturbed by everything and log out. She had to watch Karp glitch in pain until she was able to log out. Watch, helplessly, that was all she could do.
Although Cherish was the first one attack, she thought the Cleric would use a spell rather than a physical attack and couldn't move fast enough to dodge. Aelina jumped in front and saved her. And she defended her again with the incoming Champion.[#28c37f [Dancing+Script [size20 "Thank you, Aelina]]] Helpless again, she could heal, but that was it. Meanwhile, Taenya was on the offense. Why couldn't she do anything?
That was when scenes that didn't quite match her memory played before her. She was swooping in taking out the heard of goblins from before. The emotions behind the attack were hers, but not hers. They were to protect after having to watch over others… Like she had been perched for too long, finally getting a chance to strike. It was weird, but it was what she wanted. This restless heat started to grow from inside her. Intensifying, it began to radiate a soft white glow from her chest spreading outward, lighting up her tattoos.
As the surge of power encompassed her entire being, a notification appeared before her. She unlocked a new spell, Mobile Summon! This was what she needed! The soft glow faded as Taenya finished her attack. Cherish summoned Valh using this ability. Time to kick ass before their asses were kicked.
The fight was like no other. They had reasons, and like hers, it was to defend each and every single one of their own. She had spoken with the Champion as they exchanged blows, gaining this mutual understanding. Neither could take a chance of going easier on the other. They couldn't face any more loss. Although this was a game, she respected that. However, her teammates were taking a different approach. Before she knew it, Nun had challenged the champion in a dual.
The odds of him winning were so slim and he had just woken up in the springs. Valh was part of her, as weird as it sounded, she could feel that the reverse was true too. As a whole, they could win. No.They would win, hands down. However, he was being stubborn and Rime wasn't helping her case. Finally when he agreed, it was too late. They took too long. Taenya made a decision when they hadn't. The champion was dead. All hell broke loose after that.
Both Rime and Nun were down. The Cleric, Gar, escaped as Aelina and Cherish ran over to where the guys were knocked out. Before she knew it, they had taken out all of them except the Knight. It took what seemed like forever, he joined his fallen comrades. But they did it. The three of them survived. After Aelina and Taenya finished their high five, she joined in the victory. [#28c37f [Dancing+Script [size20 "Nice! We finally did it!"]]] Reaching out her left hand, she offered first bumps.
Seeing the body disappear and display the loot, she felt bad for little Knight. She couldn't help it. The little guy hid that he was a halfling out of fear of being judged, but they had just proven that he was right to only embrace his goblin side. He died hating the human part of himself. Picking up his friendship bracelet made her heart sink, but she looked back at Rime and Nun.
Rime was laid out on top of him from when he was shielding Nun from any other attacks. Cherish sat by them. Using Advance Heal, she revived Rime and then Nun. They had 30% of their original HP now. She lost 50MP, but she had plenty more.
When Taenya came up to them expecting them to come down on her for killing the champion, Cherish shook her head. [#28c37f [Dancing+Script [size20 "No, I don't see a reason. You made a decision and acted on it. I'd be lying if I said it felt right, but we got the exp we needed and leveled up. If anything,"]]] she glanced over at Nun, [#28c37f [Dancing+Script [size20 "I'm disappointed in how the rest of us took so long."]]]
Hearing the beast further in the cave, again, Cherish knew Valh could take it and Aelina could still block for her. But her AP was at 7, she may not even make it there and they were in no shape to attempt that walk. Brushing off the remaining tension from everything that just happened, she listening to Aelina, [#28c37f [Dancing+Script [size20 “Yeah, I agree with we should regroup and try this again when we're better equipped to go further. Back to the springs, guys?"]]] Back to Taenya, [#28c37f [Dancing+Script [size20 "Hey, Taenya. There's a healing spring just out of the cave. It replenishes all stats back to their max. Would you like to go with us? And although this battle was a weird one… It'd be nice if you could join our party. No pressure to accept, especially right away. One glass cannon to another."]]]
Her initial reception seemed to go well. The robotic looking character sent a message, would've been more hilarious if they were an actual in-game robot, followed by a friendly wave with a stats screen of to the side. Taenya responded with a [i [#3333ff Hello R1M3H34RT, I am Taenya]] while reciprocating his stats show off with her own. A hipster looking woman followed after the robotic one, no corniness detected in her 'peaceful' name. The final member of the party had a morbid look despite the cheerful greeting, probably was a cheerful guy who enjoyed deathly aesthetics in video games.
After those interactions, further into the cave it was!
Not too long they ran into goblins, three of them to be precise. Three green gobbos posed no problem to their party. But then three gobbos turned to six, three from the front and three from rear. A five versus six with two fronts, which meant the best split-up would be 2-3 split; An unconscious choice of Nun and R1M3H34RT in the first line, no damage soaker somewhat worrying, and herself, Aelina, and Cherish in the second line. The battle now began.
Taenya didn't pay attention to what happened in the other line, whether line ended victorious or defeated didn't matter for now; The faster line two dealt with the gobbos the faster they'd be able to help line one.
Taenya would have to thank Aelina later, that knight busted her ass to protect her and Cherish, the two magic squishies, from dying. All that damage soaking meant that two of them could let fly their mana in the form of spells. For Taenya it meant the enjoyment of burning the gobbos to ashes with zero retaliation.
The gobbos expressed their annoyance through words. It annoyed Taenya, she wanted to explore and not listen to the talk of gobbos frustrated by having their asses wupped. With the greatest pleasures she finished off the champion, incinerating him until not even the ashes remained. Apparently, based on the group's glances, roasting the champion to death had been dishonorable, Taenya didn't give a fuck since a kill was a kill along with her solo player habits.
With line two cleared of gobbos, the three of them turned to finish line one of gobbos. All three gobbos stood over the knocked out bodies of their kamaraden which meant dealing with their sorry asses. Taenya did feel sorry for the half-human gobbo, no one accepted halfings and some went even as far as giving them hell. Being out of mana meant punching for a measly 5HP a hit, but eventually the remaining gobbos died.
After that came the time to regroup and take stock. Taenya noticed the level up notification, and quickly squared away her points while grabbing two new mana using attacks. A quick glance at the team showed the dire straits they were in, if they were jumped they'd fall faster than flies. That thought reinforced by a pretty loud roar.
Taenya chuckled as Aelina complimented the teamwork, even going for a high five. Taenya high-fived Aelina with a loud slap, smiling, [b [#3333ff "If by team you mean you get hit all the time while I safely do damage then we make a good team indeed"]] while letting of a slight chuckle.
Looking around, no one else had moved yet. [b [#3333ff "So which one of you wants to berate me first? Don't be afraid, I won't bite."]]

[center [b Aelina the Knight had entered the fray with her comrades by her side. She was to fight alongside Cherish and Taenya raising her shield and Lance she focused ahead. Aelina hadn't really played many video games before so this was all new to her. However she was quite the bookworm in real life and so she studied plenty before learning to play Black Beast. Studying other RPG's and MMO's but with life and other things she was still getting the hang of it. Not to mention this game relied on reflexes as well as knowledge.]]
[center [b Heading into the battle Aelina managed to defend Cherish long enough for her to summon. It seemed Cherish had learned a new spell in the heat of battle. Taenya entering the fray came in with powerful fire blows striking straight and true. The enemy HEAVILY focused on her. Aelina had manged to be just quick enough every time. "Wow! I feel quicker! Sure this armor and shield feels heavy and I know my speed stat is worthless... Yet compared to real life? I feel pretty fast. Is it that Guardian Aura increases my movement speed? Enough so to defend my allies?" Aelina had never fought in her life. She didn't have a mean bone in her tiny body so violence was still kinda scary to her. What helped was always reminding herself it was just a game. She took a deep breath as she found herself falling back "into character" the stalwart and headstrong Knight.]]
[center [b Pushing and fending every attack away at her friends. Standing true like a wall even against the Champion and his Dark Wizard. She sadly lacked the speed to make any meaningful attacks of her own. She didn't strike till near the end to weaken the Wizard once. Her offensive skills were worthless.]]
[center [+gold I'm sorry I'm not doing much damage!]]
[center [b There was a peak of opportunity for peace to be made with this tribe. Aelina would have loved to make peace instead of war. Even if war meant more EXP and leveling faster Taenya however snuck a strike to the Champion thus ending said chance. Even had she not surprised him with that he was going to be done for. Even Aelina knew that much about this game so far. High INT meant fast and powerful spells. The tribe of course responded with disdain and anger. Aelina shielded and withstood all of it. The attacks the assault the frustration. She almost felt bad denying them every time but it was her job. The NPC's were strange and felt... So alive. In the end they were just NPC's though.]]
[center [b Cherish and the other girls finished up to go help the boys but it seemed they were just too late and both were KO'd. Aelina was impressed they held out 2v3 so long without any Tank. It was a long and difficult battle when all was said and done the party collected EXP/Loot and Soul Essence for Cherish's summoning. Aelina was tired and sorta low on HP. She looked at her in game clock.]]
[center [+gold Wow 5AM huh?]]
[center [b She'd been playing about five hours and she was just now LV 3? The first two levels in any game should happen SOOO much faster. She was also leveling with a party imagine trying to level alone. Even at early levels traveling alone seemed too dangerous.]]
[center [+gold Whew! That fight took forever! Cherish I think you should heal the boys and wake them up!]]
[center [b Aelina saw her screen alongside her party's AP/MP/HP they were in rough shape. If they hit another fight on the way out they are in trouble. Aelina had went through her screen leveling her AP plenty and her HP slightly. Taenya was out of juice/MP. She had the most dangerous burst DPS in the party but when her MP runs dry she can't do much. Aelina had sheathed her weapon and Lance.]]
[center [youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J61u3wFzl68]]
[center [h3 Ominous Pressure]]
[center [b Deeper down the cave a roar could be heard along with a heavy pressure. Aelina shook a bit startled, the roar sounded inhuman for sure. It was a loud angry bellow she didn't think the party was prepared for such a fight.]]
[center [+gold Maybe we should hire a max party before returning? I think in Black Beast.. That's a party of seven right? That's just my own idea it's up to you guys. To be honest I'm kinda new to gam- Being a Knight! Hehe~]]
[center [b Aelina stuck her tongue out playfully rubbing the back of her head. She was ready for Rime or Nun to have a big conversation with Taenya maybe even Cherish. Maybe they'd let it go? Either way Aelina would do her best to stay out of it. She raised a hand to give Taenya a high five.]]

[center [b As Cherish and Aelina held back Taenya from killing another Goblin. Rimeheart shot two piercing shots at the Gunner. The Knight however used protective block twice using 20AP. Panting heavily he was running low on stamina. The piercing shots revealed his defense! 41!]]
[center [b Piercing 20% of DEF to lower it to 33! Sadly Rimeheart still only deals 10DMG! Consuming 60AP! The Knight in anger strikes at Rimeheart but he's able to effortlessly dodge like his friend shooting a counter for another 5DMG! The gunner uses 42AP to pierce Rimehearts higher stat to blow a whole through his other shoulder. KO'ing him! He's still alive but in critical condition! The gunner sighed as most of his scrap (AP) had been used.]]
