[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
Recruitments ------------ Tower, Anyday

[At Ganondorf's order, Richtofen pulls out his pistol and checks to make sure it's loaded. It's a dinky little thing, but it's far better than nothing. And he has his knife on him, just in case.

He taps his foot as they descend, resisting the urge to strike up conversation with any of the others. They all look so anxious. Richtofen, on the other hand, is excited. Even if they get ambushed, he'll get a good fight out of it.

When the doors open, Richtofen is the second person to step out, his gun at the ready. He looks around and whistles.]

Oh, look! At least the power is on.

[Hands holding tight onto the handle of his double-edged axe, Gimli waited quietly. Patiently. As the elevator doors opened, he narrowed his eyes, feet shifting just slightly to give him proper footing to swing at a moment's notice if necessary. When nothing terrible happens as the first two step out, he follows them warily, and, unable to help himself, finds the words spilling out his mouth almost without thought.]

I don't know about you, folks, but this would be time the orcs be falling down out ears, back home.

[Reno makes a strangled noise in the back of his throat, giving the dwarf a slight glare.]

Damn. Don't jynx it.

[The Turk is already edgy enough, thank you.]
childhero: (default ∆ of the forest)

[personal profile] childhero 2012-06-28 11:13 pm (UTC)(link)
[... what is Ganondorf waiting for?

It isn't that Link doesn't understand the concern about what will happen to the one who goes in first. The thought of it worries him. He's been considering being the first one to go through, if only because then he'd possibly be protecting everyone else should something bad actually happen. But...

His brow furrows. He supposes it still isn't in Ganondorf's nature to think like that. Besides, he's the one with the plan, the one providing solid direction to everyone else. If something bad does happen to him... Link isn't sure how everyone else would react. He's sure Fado would step up and take charge, but would the others listen? They may not know or care about his status as a Sage and see only a boy.

Link turns to look around at everyone in the hallway. His mouth is set in a line. After a brief moment, he makes up his mind, and makes his way down the hallway to the door. He looks up at Ganondorf, expression still serious, and gives him a small nod. Yes, he's thought this through. Yes, he's willing to be the first one.

He reaches up for the doorknob, takes hold, and turns it, leaning his weight carefully on the door so it'll hopefully swing open slowly. Once it's open, he steps inside without another glance back.]

[The control room is large, filled with computer monitors on the walls and various buttons, dials, and keyboards beneath said monitors. Most of them are displaying error screens and warning of the various outages in the Tower, but a few seem to be functioning properly, displaying various floors of the Tower. There's a table in the center that could seat five, but only one boy is at the table now, and he looks up when the door opens--first looking hopeful, then looking alarmed.]

Hey--Hey, what are you doing here?
crouching_sin: (not a damn librarian)

[personal profile] crouching_sin 2012-06-29 11:10 am (UTC)(link)
[Naoya chuckles at the boy's alarm, and then heads straight for the computers. He looks over them to attempt to decipher whatever coding they're running on. Then he shrugs and begins to type in the coding language that seems most appropriate, attempting to first restore power and then find information.]
doctor_dismemberment: (Default)

[personal profile] doctor_dismemberment 2012-06-29 09:32 pm (UTC)(link)
[Richtofen enters next, sneering at the boy as he goes by. Oh, how he hates children. If they have to dispose of him, Richtofen will be more than happy to do so.

On the other hand, the sight of all the machines in their emergency modes is a comfort. It really brings back memories - blaring alarms, scientists scrambling over one another to escape hordes of the undead, machines blinking and flashing every which way... It was a fun time.

Eager to re-live that chaos, this time with a little more control in his hands, Richtofen begins examining the computers. He's programmed more than a few in his lifetime. If this technology is anything like what he's worked with before, it shouldn't be too tough to figure out. He hears the hissing of voices in the back of his head spurring him on, giving him instructions, and he listens intently as he goes to work.]
childhero: (navi ∆ quietly... quietly...)

[personal profile] childhero 2012-07-02 07:41 am (UTC)(link)
[Link stays over by the doorway. When it comes to computers and such, he... isn't really good for much. For now, he'll keep an eye on things from his spot there.

He'll try talking to Zo, though.]

The monsters have gotten out of hand, and we've been struggling to make sure everyone has enough food and water. We had to do something.
donttelltheelf: (Certainty of death.)

[personal profile] donttelltheelf 2012-07-02 10:38 pm (UTC)(link)
[...a boy was in charge of this place? That was not a hobbit, that was a boy. Gimli had a bad feeling about the whole thing, but that only makes it worse. He shoots the tall redhead a side look and nods at the young kid, shifting his axe to his other hand in an unconscious attempt to not frighten the kid. He looked alarmed enough.]

Oi lad, this doesn't have to get unnecessarily... ugly, you understand? We are all very reasonable here.
denigrator: (While there's children to make sad)

[personal profile] denigrator 2012-07-02 10:53 pm (UTC)(link)
[Hojo still has his gun in his hand, but he sees no reason to shoot the boy, not yet, though he looks him over briefly, wondering about his nature, if he's other than what he seems. He's indifferent to children, or vaguely annoyed by them, unless they serve some purpose or are of value to his research. This one might be interesting, it's possible. He's worked with children before.]

Yes yes, there's no need to be alarmed.

[As he talks, he, too, is drawn to the computers, of course. This kind of interface... that's what he's wanted, what he's been looking for, waiting for. He has a great deal of skill with computing, programming.

He isn't attempting to achieve any particular goal in this initial study of the machines, only to understand, to learn.]

You've been left unaccompanied, I see. What is the extent of your control here?
midgarhorizon: ((ACC) Walking away)

[personal profile] midgarhorizon 2012-07-04 01:55 am (UTC)(link)
[Reno sighs and stands next to the kid, watching his every move.

It isn't just for their protection from Zo, but also protecting the kid from unnecessary killing. It didn't seem right, despite what he said earlier. And then there was Hojo to consider.

He doesn't say anything, just listens to the others.]
animusnpcs: (Zo)

[personal profile] animusnpcs 2012-07-04 02:40 am (UTC)(link)
[Zo hops up to try and block the computers, though he's hardly an imposing figure.]

Don't break anything! I've been trying to send you stuff--I did send you guys stuff! Some food and some flashlights and some water... Um--usually it's not just me but everyone else went somewhere.

[Once the computers are coaxed on they reveal a fairly standard login screen, requesting a user name and password.]
crouching_sin: (not a damn librarian)

[personal profile] crouching_sin 2012-07-04 03:38 am (UTC)(link)
[Naoya just raises an eyebrow and attempts some basic usernames and passwords based on things he's seen around the tower. He doesn't expect them to work, but who knows? Maybe he'll get lucky. Not likely, given his usual luck.]
doctor_dismemberment: (Default)

[personal profile] doctor_dismemberment 2012-07-04 04:15 am (UTC)(link)
[Richtofen glances over, eyeing Naoya up. Is he really going to attempt to guess the password himself? Why, that could take ages!]

I have a better idea, mein Freund.

[He steps away from the computer and pulls his gun back out. With a look not unlike what one might give a particularly disgusting bug, he points it straight at Zo's head.]

You, child.

[He smiles, his voice sickly sweet.] You will tell us what to type...

[And then, midway through his next sentence, he breaks into a shout.]

Or I will splatter your brains all over the computers!
animusnpcs: (Zo)

[personal profile] animusnpcs 2012-07-04 04:25 am (UTC)(link)
[The password and username attempts yield no results.

Zo, meanwhile, stares at the gun with wide, terrified eyes. A pulse, not unlike a very mild shockwave, spreads out from the boy. The door slams shut and all abilities are disabled.]

I-I-I don't know them! If I knew them I'd have turned everything back on!
doctor_dismemberment: (Default)

[personal profile] doctor_dismemberment 2012-07-04 05:05 am (UTC)(link)
[The shockwave does little more than make Richtofen glance over his shoulder at the door. All right, so this brat can make doors shut. It isn't like he's never dealt with the products of annoying little children's powers before.

He looks back at Zo, his lip curling into a sneer.]

Do you think I'm stupid? [He nudges the gun forward until the barrel brushes up against Zo's forehead.] We know you're one of them, so get to it, ja?
midgarhorizon: ((Helicopter Chase) Eyes narrowed)

[personal profile] midgarhorizon 2012-07-04 05:17 am (UTC)(link)

[Reno grabs the barrel of the gun and forcibly pushes it away from Zo.]

He's just a kid, it's obvious he's got no clue, and freakin' him out isn't going to get us anywhere, except maybe dead.

[Reno is upset. They have no idea what Zo was capable of.]

Let me take care of the kid.

animusnpcs: (Zo)

[personal profile] animusnpcs 2012-07-04 05:21 am (UTC)(link)
[The gun in question explodes. Zo shrinks back from the sound.]

I said I don't know!
childhero: (battle ∆ ready)

[personal profile] childhero 2012-07-04 07:08 am (UTC)(link)
[If Reno hadn't jumped in, Link would have. He started forward when Richtofen pointed his weapon at Zo, but stopped partway to the boy when Reno interfered. He watches tensely, grip on his sword tight. If Richtofen doesn't back down or anyone else makes a hostile move towards Zo, at the very least he can use his shield for the boy's defense.

It seems to him that Zo's powers are more reactive than a conscious decision on his part. It really doesn't seem like a good idea to scare him any further.]
crouching_sin: (not a damn librarian)

[personal profile] crouching_sin 2012-07-04 10:33 am (UTC)(link)
[Naoya stops typing, and turns to look at the scene. This is getting him nowhere.]

If you are quite done being the angry German stereotype... perhaps we can get somewhere.

[He looks directly at Zo, expression less severe than it normally is.]

Now, young man. The others are elsewhere - I assume with the missing people? They would be the ones who are more in control of things here?
donttelltheelf: (Nobody tosses a dwarf.)

[personal profile] donttelltheelf 2012-07-04 11:04 pm (UTC)(link)
Everyone will keep their brains inside their skulls!

[Gimli growls as he too offers Richtofen an unsavory look. Then he turns to the boy again.]

He's right, laddie.

[Gimli nods in Ganondorf's direction, though he doesn't look entirely convinced.]

We just want to make things right, given the circumstances. Try to help us here.
doctor_dismemberment: (Default)

[personal profile] doctor_dismemberment 2012-07-04 11:24 pm (UTC)(link)
[The explosion causes Richtofen to wrench his hand back with a shout. Surprisingly, his hand hasn't been taken off, but it is bleeding, a few pieces of the metal embedded in his palm. The pain is both exhilarating and infuriating, and he takes a few steps away from the kid, his eyes wide and livid.]

Oh, ja. [He isn't sure who deserves his glare more, the kid or his so-called comrades, so he settles on glaring at the last person who spoke.] Let's make things right.

[And then he walks back to the computers, a few drops of blood dripping to the floor as he goes. He mutters things under his breath in German, none of them quite loud enough to be heard, but it sounds pretty viscous even for someone who doesn't know the language.]
