[Tower Takeover Plot] || [24th to 25th June] || [Open/Closed]

Characters: A lot - Look at the tags. I'll try to keep the list updated as it goes on.
Setting: The Tower (various floors) / The Pod Area / The Control Room. The Teams attempt to break-in will happen during the night from the 24th to the 25th. The monsters being enraged will last for the the 24th and the 25th, and will end with Ganon's death early on the 25th.
Format: Action most likely
Summary: Ganondorf's plot to take over the tower is finally happening, with various team assigned to various tasks. You can go here for more details or to ask a question. There will be mainly three things going on:

- The Control Room team, led by Ganondorf and attempting to take over the tower. This group's action will be divided in two threads, one before they reach the control room, one after. Membership for this group is CLOSED.
- The Pod Team, trying to break into the Pods, actually only serving as diversion so that the Control Room Team can reach its purpose. Like for the Control Room team, there will be two threads. Membership for this group is OPEN.
- The Monsters going berserk in the tower and attacking everyone on their way, once more to serve as a diversion. No membership required for that.

Basically, we start by tagging the Gathering thread of each team, then after a short while move on to the Pod/Control Room thread. There will also be a thread about the recruitment if you want it played out- Hence there will be a total of six threads in order to keep things organized, but don't hesitate to make your own thread if say, two or more characters have a private discussion at some point during the event or for a monster battle. More details below.

Warnings: Everyone in the Control Room will die, no escaping it. Those in the Pod Team may manage to survive if they're clever about it. Anyone encountering a monster risk to be wounded or killed.

Optional OOC Information
Lots of tl;dr, just to give a few more details in case you need them. Don't feel forced to read unless you need it, it's really lots of bla bla.

Control Room Team
This team is led by Ganondorf with the sole purpose of taking over the tower. First Ganon will wait until all those concerned arrive at the gathering; then details of the plan will be given once more for those who didn't hear everything. Only then will they head to the Control Room, since Ganondorf more or less found out how to reach it. Since this team is full, no more characters can be accepted in. People in this team are:

Ganondorf, MM Link, Fado, Hojo, Reno (OU), Naoya, Xigbar, Richtofen, Gimli, Riku (OU) and Shion. Fi and Xion (OU) may appear in the Gathering Thread but not the Control Room Thread. Indeed, because of how many people are involved (11-13), the events for this group will be divided into two threads: one before they enter the control room, one after.

The Gathering
This thread will take place on the First Floor (Cafeteria) and will be about the team's member arrival. They can speak between them in the meanwhile, whatever to kill time. Once everybody will be there, Ganondorf will explain the plan once more for those who don't know the details. He will make no mention of the diversions (it's to say the Monsters and the Pod Team) as officially he's not behind the Pod Team and most people shouldn't even know this Team exists. Then they will move in toward the control room.

The Control Room
This thread will take place in the Control Room, as the characters step in. This is also where everyone will die (anyone tagging in this thread is sure to die). Probably killed off by Zo? The details for how it'll happen precisely are yet unknown. Considering how long this is all going to be, we won't have to wait until the first's thread end to start this one.

Pod Team
This Team is led by SS Link and has for objective to go and free those prisoner in the Pods not like those in Dax's pod want to be freed anyway. In fact, Ganon secretly set it up to serve as diversion for the Control Room Team to succeed. Nevertheless aside from the Turks, nobody in the group knows that it is only as a diversion. Those involved are:

SS Link, TP Link, ALTTP Link, Enoch, Kafuka, Tara, Suzaku, Beat, Rude and Reno (AU). Unlike the Control Room Team, this one is still open to more people if you want join in the horror fun. And unlike the Control Room Team, those in this team may come out of it alive if they play smart. IF. Much like for the Control Room team, events for this group will be divided in two threads.

The Gathering
Same than for the other team, except it happens on the First Dormitory Floor. SS Link will be the one in charge here. He'll probably also be much more sympathetic than Ganondorf, open to answer questions and less of a douche overall. Well he should be Link.

The Pods' Area
This thread will take place when the characters will get close to the Pod Area. What will happen exactly is not that clear yet, but if they play clever they may come out of it alive.

Inside the Tower
Because one diversion isn't enough, Ganondorf has used his powers to enrage the Tower's monsters and send them to kill everyone. He's sent out a couple monsters of his making as well, and asked Ghirahim to go on a killing spree. Just another day in the tower.

You don't need to tag in the monster thread for that, it's just for convenience. If you want to play with that side-effect of the event, you can chose to make your own thread, or your own log.

Same monsters than usual, except this week-end, they are out to kill. More than they usually are. Stronger, more ferocious, faster, etc. There are particularly more Darknut than usual. On the less dangerous side, there are many Poes Ganondorf created causing havoc around, not so much killing people, more like ravaging the tower in any possible ways. They're ghost-like creatures, sensitive to light.

Jalhalla is a gigantic monster unleashed by Ganon as seen here and here is for an example of how a battle against it works. Fou-Lu Is set to kill it before the end of the event, but that doesn't mean it cannot harm people or wreak havoc before that.

At least one of the two Ghirahim will be out, hunting to kill anyone they can on Ganondorf's order. The sad part is that unlike regular monsters, Ghirahim is very smart and won't go down that easily.

Because time lacked, there was no recruitment post for the teams. Nevertheless, if you'd rather not have the recruitment and revelations handwaved, you can tag into this thread to have the recruitment happen.

Control Room Team --- Gathering – Floor 1 /// The Control Room
Pod Team ---------------- Gathering – Dormitories /// The Pods' Area
In the Tower ------------- Jalhalla | Monsters | Ghirahim

[Flamsilocks? When Axel came back, Reno would have to use that one.]

Xion? [Less than pleased she had followed him here.] You can't be here.

[Hojo makes his appearance quietly. He is currently slightly--indisposed, so to speak, considering the spike-like appendages rising from his back and the somewhat twisted and distorted proportions of his body. He no longer looks quite human. Nevertheless, he calmly pushes up his glasses and surveys the others present with a cold, critical gaze.

He doubts this plan will succeed. However, he's interested in what he can potentially learn from it. Even failures can be educational, he's learned.]

[Fado had been there for quite some time, standing quietly near Ganondorf and Link. Though usually he would be more chatty, he was strictly business for now. Frankly he didn't like the feelings he got from most of the characters Ganondorf had assembled-- not to mention the fact that he was working with The King of Evil.

Still, he was courteous enough to greet everyone that was arriving at least.]

It's good to see some of you are already acquainted. It will make the proceedings easier. [He said with an uncharacteristically terse smile. It was obvious he basically just wanted to move on with this.]
crouching_sin: (the city is at war)

[personal profile] crouching_sin 2012-06-25 03:53 pm (UTC)(link)
Have we all arrived, then?

[This was a large group already. It would make coordinating them much more difficult. Oh well. If he had to, he'd do things on his own, or at least use them as distractions.]
crouching_sin: (oh? you think so?)

[personal profile] crouching_sin 2012-06-25 05:06 pm (UTC)(link)
Provided they're some form of computer terminal it should be a relatively simple matter for me to locate the needed variables. I have no idea what sort of system or language they're using but technology and linguistics are particular specialties of mine.

[He sweeps his arm towards the rest of the group broadly.]

Unless someone else feels confident enough in their skills to offer their services instead?

[Though that grin on his face has a subtle hint of 'don't you dare'.]

[Whether all those this was intended for listened or not... there is one more person, who is following each and every of his words while staying hidden, pressed against the wall and into the deepest shadow of the staircase leading up to the next floor.

It's really only coincidence that Riku's stumbled over all of this in his wandering, but he is honestly glad that he has... all things considered. He doesn't know everyone gathered... some he he's never seen (...or rather heard/sensed) before, some he knows from passing them in the hallway and some...

His gut twists when he hears Xion's voice, and even more so when he recognizes just who she just greeted - just when had Xigbar arrived in the tower!? - and then he feels himself freeze when he realizes just who is running this show.

He doesn't know much this man, about Ganondorf, though he has heard whispers over the passing month... of offers to band together, of protection, and he's always turned down any second hand offer for one simple reason. This is the man, who killed Sora.

It's probably a good thing that Riku doesn't believe in revenge anymore.

He stays right where he is after Ganondorf is finished, frowning to himself as he considers his own course of action... while the plan seems simple enough, and maybe even to all their benefit, surely there must be something else going on as well, and with Xion involved...

For now, it will be better to keep watch and follow from the distance. Good thing that he does have some experience with that already, isn't it?]

fashionably late don't mind me OTL

[Richtofen, for once, is quiet. He steps into the room and looks around at the assembled group - oh my, is that big, lumbering monster Professor Hojo? - and stands off to the side. He glances around at the others who've assembled, regarding the strangers with looks of mild suspicion.

He winces when he hears voices in the back of his head that urge him not to trust them. He wills them to be quiet, removes his hat, and runs his fingers through his hair.

He looks up to Ganondorf, attentive as he begins to talk.]

[Naoya just shrugs. What's another death in the grand scheme of things? None of them are pieces in this game that matter to him, at least not yet. He keeps his voice low as he speaks.]

Those who stand in the way will be cut down. It's that simple.
doctor_dismemberment: (Default)

[personal profile] doctor_dismemberment 2012-06-26 01:43 am (UTC)(link)
[Richtofen looks to Naoya and chuckles fondly.] I like the way you think.

[Then, he looks back to Ganondorf.] I'm fine with killing anybody. [In an almost sing-song voice, he continues:] Or everybody!

[The smile fades from his face, and he seems surprisingly serious compared to how he looked just a second ago.] Whatever we need to do. [He gives a short nod.]
madannoshashu: (Ω This is what you're missing.)

[ Xigbar just smiles under the hood. ]

Roger that, O Fearless Leader.

I'll keep a bullet with his name on it.
denigrator: (I'm glad I'm in it)

[personal profile] denigrator 2012-06-26 08:37 pm (UTC)(link)
[Hojo nods toward Richtofen, acknowledging the other man with a smile.]

Yes, simple enough. I have the means to do so.

[For all his altered state, he is still thinking clearly, and like himself. He is also fairly well armed.]

It would be interesting to see what, if anything, would happen, if we did.

[Really, why not? Hojo would not object, even if that were the objective of their mission. The experiment is what matters. To understand the tower, and its workings. Of course, he would like to get control of the computers, if possible.]
midgarhorizon: ((Fanart) Professional)

[personal profile] midgarhorizon 2012-06-26 09:17 pm (UTC)(link)
[Giving Hojo the sideeye, Reno shrugged. It felt odd siding with him even for just this mission, but as long as Hojo kept his tentacles to himself, Reno was willing to tolerate it in the hope that they got control of the Tower.]

Might be better taking him as hostage in case the others try something, but if we got no choice I'd just as soon. It's tough he's a kid, but we don't got any clue of what he's capable of.

[Pausing here, he gives a very scrutinizing look at the others.]

We should probably remember that when we get in there. They can manipulate perceptions and laws of physics, who knows what else they got up their sleeve. I'm not interested in dyin' just yet.
savedbyasong: (unsure)

[personal profile] savedbyasong 2012-06-25 12:52 pm (UTC)(link)
Why not, Reno? [Shion looks out from where he was stood behind Xion, he was a little worried about this. But wasn't this similar to what he and Nezumi had been trying to do, make things better by taking on an enemy so much bigger than themselves.

Except he had never done it, he had been brought here plans for infiltrating the correctional facility only just beginning. Perhaps this group would do better.]
attheclocktower: (implore ♡ stronger and stronger)

[personal profile] attheclocktower 2012-06-25 01:06 pm (UTC)(link)
[She tenses a little at the use of her old nickname. She'd never really liked it, and now... now that she knew what she was... had he known? The nickname was almost too ironic to be accident]

He's not. [Xion looks away from Xigbar, clearly unhappy at the reminder.] He left a while ago.

[She hesitates a little, her attention wavering between Xigbar and Reno, until Shion's words make her glance behind her at him. She turns back towards Reno.]

You're my friend. I want to help.
midgarhorizon: ((Reno Worries Scene) Shame/I failed)

[personal profile] midgarhorizon 2012-06-25 06:30 pm (UTC)(link)
[Reno felt like tearing out some of his hair.]

Neither of you can come. I need you two back out here.

[Okay, he'd have to have a talk with them about the chain of command later and following orders.]

If this thing goes bad I'm gonna need someone to watch the retreat, maybe tell the others what happened.
savedbyasong: (serious)

[personal profile] savedbyasong 2012-06-25 08:13 pm (UTC)(link)
[Shion frowned, not quite believing that Reno needed them back in the tower. He had been left behind enough times...] We want to help you Reno, you shouldn't have to go alone.

[He had said they were family, family stuck together.]
madannoshashu: (Ω I prefer Column B.)

[personal profile] madannoshashu 2012-06-25 08:45 pm (UTC)(link)
Oh dear. That is a shame.

[ He'll have to make a point of finding out who else is lingering around the tower from now on. The old man doesn't know everyone, after all.

He glances at Reno before turning back to Xion. ]

Your buddy has a point there, Poppet. Besides- it probably won't be pretty.
attheclocktower: (anguish ♡ but I don't seem to have)

[personal profile] attheclocktower 2012-06-26 06:30 am (UTC)(link)
[Xion grimaces. Back home, nobody (pun not intended) had ever cared - besides Roxas and Axel and probably Riku - if she were ever sent on dangerous missions and the like. If the time she'd been sent to hunt down Riku was anything to go by.

She looks around at them all, face set.]

I've already seen a lot of not pretty things here. [Riku's and Sora's respective deaths, her own nightmares, all the other things the Tower is capable of doing...] I don't want anything bad to happen to you too, not if I can do something to help!
midgarhorizon: ((Fanart) Fret)

[personal profile] midgarhorizon 2012-06-26 07:34 am (UTC)(link)
[Sigh. This was his own fault, really.]

You can't. Not on this trip. I need people to hold the Tower in case the Admins come back.

[Another sigh.]

That's why I'm assignin' you two to guard the retreat. Part of being a Turk? Is learnin' how to follow orders. Besides, I'm not alone, I got these guys with me.

[His voice lowers a little bit, just so the two of them can hear it.]

If this goes wrong, I'm gonna need you to help me recover. You know what's been happening to people who die lately. If it's going to be that way, I don't wanna have to worry about you kids while I'm nursing myself back to health, too.

Go find Rusty and Rude, or one of the others and stay with them. They'll know what to do.
savedbyasong: (oh...)

[personal profile] savedbyasong 2012-06-26 07:07 pm (UTC)(link)
[Shion opened his mouth to argue, because Xion was right, they had seen enough not pretty things here. He didn't need protected from this.

But the next comment made him pause because Reno was right... His mind wanted to stop at the very thought of Reno being hurt but he had to keep concentrating, he focused on breathing.]
You don't have to worry about us, I want to help.

madannoshashu: (Ω Oh the memories.)

[personal profile] madannoshashu 2012-07-01 04:31 am (UTC)(link)
No need to add injury to insult, is there?

[ Not that he really cares. It just seems silly to bring along the kids when it's wits and experience that will keep them alive. ]

You should listen to your friend.
