Paula Embarrasses Herself Publicly on Stage

Post by Paula Tergeist on Sat Aug 25, 2018 2:30 pm

The event was advertised station wide. A performance to remember! Paula Tergiest on the stage of the Underdark Theater! The first time any leader has ever performed publicly on a stage. It was to be a performance of Flight of the Starly! A much beloved ballet, and Miss Tergiest was to be the featured star!

Malamar the owner and host of the Underdark Theater was waiting by the door to welcome the guests to this very special and exclusive performance. The theater was dim but had enough lighting for people to find their seats easily. The stage had the curtains drawn to obscure the stage.


[Hello! Welcome to a dumb thing I am doing. Don't worry about why Paula is performing on a stage so much, maybe ask her if you are curious. This is going to be a special event where you can opt in to go to the Underdark Theater in the Occult Sector to watch the performance as an audience member. Paula is going to be failing completely trying to perform a ballet, but she might need some help from the audience! Or hell you can sabotage her if you like. Either or really. For now, take your seat and maybe talk a bit with the other audience members. I will post again with more for the first scene of the performance. I will post the first scene in two and a half hours after this first post. You have until then to talk with your fellow audience members.]

Javan and Opal were, of course, sat in one of the exclusive premium boxes of the theatre. Javan was smiling gracefully, wearing a delightful formal gown coloured cream and accented with gold. Her hair was curled into an elegant style and she waited patiently for her fiancé's performance.

Opal was also dressed for the occasion, in a beautiful frilly pink dress, her hair plaited around her head and down to her shoulder, mixing the blue and green strands of hair together. She giggled excitedly, her purple eye changed to an emerald green in colour as she could barely sit still in excitement.

The other side of Javan was another small girl, mostly clinging to the graceful lady and half hiding behind her seat. The girl was difficult to spot in the exclusive box, and seemed to disappear quite frequently, but any glimpse of her showed that she seemed to be wearing a purple formal suit and had purple hair styled into a messy fringe covering her forehead, a top hat resting on her crown.

Gwyn was sat in the front row of the stalls, happy that she claimed the best seats in the middle, saving one next to her should Hel wish to join. Her hair was tied back elegantly, and she wore a figure-hugging cocktail dress with an emerald green colour and accented with a gold motif. She seemed uncaring that her wings would obscure the view of the persons behind her.

Jade, not wanting to miss the opportunity to see the talent of the highest ranking member of the occult sector, had been excited to watch since the moment she heard about the performance. Buzzing with anticipation she could hardly stay stood in the queue to get in.

The instant Malamar had laid eyes upon her ticket she leapt over the painfully slow traffic in front of her and ran on the back of seats directly to her place near the back of the room. Finally in her seat, Jade released her pokémon from its ball and together the ninja and slushrew sunk into the comfy cushion.

"We're gonna learn so much from Paula's techniques today, Izayoi!" the grinning girl said to her companion, notepad in hand, just like her sensei taught her.

Hel will join Gwyn. She is wearing a tight fitting dress and some heels. She holds Gwyn's hand and places her head one Gwyn's shoulder.

Act 1 Scene 1: The Graceful Entrance

Post by Paula Tergeist on Mon Aug 27, 2018 3:57 pm

Malamar took the stage. "Ladies and Gentlemen of the audience. It is finally that time of the evening. The station is plunged into gentle darkness. The hour of mysticism and illusion is about to begin. Of course, The Underdark Theater Trope has a special performance for you tonight. A rendition of *Flight of the Starly!* A swashbuckling tale of magic and piracy in a world of political intrigue. Our heroine, Princess Mary Bonny and her crew of fearsome scalawags will embark on an adventure of impossible danger on their trusty ship, The Starly!"

The music began and the curtains pulled away to reveal a stage of simplistic design and a small amount of effort the make it seem like a ship. The 'waves' behind it were clearly Inkay holding pieces of cardboard and waving them around with enthusiasm. The spotlight focused on a door that was apparently the cabin of the captain.

The door bursts out and Paula leaps out. Stumbling as she landed the audience got a good look at the red faced Paula. She was dressed in an outfit that looked both like a tutu and a pirate captain's garb. She had on a Tricorne, but her hair was left wild and it billowed behind her. She stood on her toes and spun to the side where she greated an inkay who had a prop map in his flipper. It had a clear crayon line drawn on it with a messy red X at the end. Paula nodded and spun then tip toes and stumbled again over to what was supposed to be the edge of the ship.

She took out a para-scope and pointed. The spotlight zipped to a cloth with a island crudely painted on it. Paula stood there red-faced as she waited for the music to change to the next track but the inkay in the rafters forgot his cue. Sweating Paula stood there and shook a little.




[Rolls Acrobatics 4, Charm 5]

[Okay, so you all have a chance to help Paula, either roll something you think might help or help in other ways! She's dying out there and needs assistance!]

Javan watched and smiled down with a proud and encouraging beam, her eyes sparkling as she witnessed Paula enter the stage. She nodded her head, encouragingly [Charm 27] and made a soft motion with her hands to hopefully help her clear stage fright. [Let Me Help You With That, roll charm with +6 bonus]

Opal giggled a little, but was incredibly happy to see her mother on the stage, and she waved enthusiastically [18 Charm]. She looked up at Javan and - noticing her actions - did the same to help Paula [Let Me Help You With That, roll charm with +4]

Gwyn looked embarrassed for Paula, and possibly herself. She rolled her eyes and shook her head, before glaring at Paula and mouthing "Get on with it, you idiot!" [Command 29]

Hel will shake her head in embarrassment for Paula. "Focus on the timing!" [25 Command] Than she just hums to the music.

Paula much more gracefully jumps off the boat and there is a seamless stage transition to a scene with a beach. The beach is a much more true to life rendition than the boat was. The waves moved naturally and the sand kicked up as Paula moved. She was still less than perfect with her form but moves appeared graceful regardless. She seemed to be trying her hardest now.

Pirouetting to the other side of the sandy stage she approached a chest.flipping the lid open Paula was immediately blasted by an explosion. Flipping backwards on her hands Paula looked aghast at the open box. Inside was a snickering Zoroark with a pirate captain's hat as well. It leaped back from Paula as she drew her cutlass.

[10 Acro, 16 Charm. literally as good as I can expect from her. Also as you can see, if you help her the stage will respond. Hindering her might also do something. And! we're going into a stage combat so any orders you have can be used on Paula! Help her fight!]

Hel will shout out. "Strike where you know it will hurt the most."
[Pinpoint Strike: +2 Accuracy and Effect Range with a -5 damage. Also Brutal Training: +1 Crit and Effect Range]
After her orders she leans to Gwyn, "This is getting good."

Gwyn leans over to Hel and grins. "And I thought this would be boring!" She glares coldly at the Zoroark with a growl [Leer on Zoroark, 14 to hit] and forewarns Paula of their attacks [Forwarn, move with highest damage dice roll is revealed and -2 penalty to AC checks for rest of encounter. If 2 are highest, both revealed.]

Opal jumped up on her seat and started to chant at Paula to encourage her, her fist in the air. [Lucky Chant, cause crits to cause normal damage as if not a crit. 3 uses]

Javan chuckled at Opal's enthusiasm, and gently motioned of specific points for Paula to strike in quick succession [Strike again - additional standard action at-will]
