Gantz RPG Mission 2: Aftermath
GM notes: Since this mission had such a heavy amount of character development and there was a 3 month break right in the middle of it, I'll let everybody remember the events of the mission even after they were injured. Updates will be dictated by time instead of action: I will be updating once everyday, and the characters can interact and talk as much as they like in between, as long as there are no actions that may injure or kill another person.
I hope you all enjoyed the mission. I'm a little glad it's over D:.
Don't expect this to be the last you'll see of Skittles. Dun dun dunnn...
IC: Naomi opens her eyes suddenly and sits up quickly, looking around. It's the room where the night of hell had started, with the opened up black ball still resting in the right hand section of the room. Her leg and arm are healed, but she is the only one in the room, strangely enough. Suddenly, a beam of light emits from the ball and Koi appears, laying face down, followed by Saigo, Brandon (looking bewildered), Tomoe, the old woman, the still naked girl, and, finally, Dino. All of their injuries have been healed as well.
It looks like the majority of participants have survived, strangely enough. Palpatine, Popo, and AK can all participate freely in this thread as well. Have fun, and do not try to control other characters or anything like that. The scores will be given out on Saturday, then there will be one or two more days of interactions in the room, and then we'll start the next mission next week.

Tomoe found every breath intoxicating once it had sunk in she was no longer in danger. She spent a moment feeling guilty about the others that didn't make it but felt too happy to be alive to mourn.
"I'm even glad to see you..." she said the black ball in the middle of the room while smiling. "Jigoku no Gashapon." She decided that any black ball containing a human on life-support needed a name and "Hell's Capsule Toy" seemed appropriate.
She strolled to Naomi still smiling, which was far out of character for the immensely shy and socially ambivalant young woman.
"I told you that you were like Katsushiro from Seven Samurai. He survived at the end too."
The idea of the men in the room leering at her in her skin-tight suit made Tomoe momentarily forget her joviality and retrieved the gray overcoat she came to the room in and covered herself.
Another, much darker thought crossed her mind then as she wondered what would happen to them for not killing every alien.

Koi was mentally wary. He had realized all too soon that this place wasn't such a forgiving place, that this was a place where even if a god made a simple mistake their life would end. That nothign appears as it seems, and safety is an illusion as long as you arn't in the room. But he still felt glad he no longer had a hole in his gut, he never wanted that feeling again.
Looking up Koi looked for the man he was fighting along side with a few seconds prior. And he could only say what he wanted to say by whispering into his ear. "Did you kill him?"
Naomi opened her eyes and felt... relief. Just huge relief. She could hear her heartbeat, smell her breath, feel the blood rushing through her veins... and knew, that she was actually alive. That she had made it. They pain had gone away, just like back then when she had entered the room. She looked down on her body and could hardly believe that the two stomps had disappeared and she had retrieved her lost arm and leg. They were as good as new. And then she sensed a dense humming. Looking in this direction, there was a light beam coming from the ball, and at its destination, a body appeared. She could see brain, bones, guts... But Naomi wasn't frightened. She had seen this before. She only had had no time back then to react to it, and now it didn't really matter.
After a few minutes, there were several people around her. She remembered everyone. She wasn't oblivious to the fact that some people were missing. But many were there... and they could all see her exposed breasts. It took Naomi some time to notice her nudity around the chest, but only three seconds to put the tight suit back in position, blushing while doing so. She heard Tomoe's voice, looked into her face and now, at this moment, she really knew that she had survived. That both of them did. She smiled at the woman and stood up. It was then when she saw the Koi, lying on the floor but looking up at the tall black man, whispering something. She didn't really noticed him before, though he had been the first one to come back. But she remembered the face and the voice. And a shudder of fright went down her spine. Naomi felt a hard, violent prickle in her new arm and leg and made several steps away from the boy, backing into the nearest corner. Fear was in her eyes.
After taking a few moments to process what had happened, Dino stood up and looked at his quivering hands. He clenched them, then opened them once again, and they were once again perfectly still and strong. He looked over his body. The pain was gone. There was no sword sticking out of his middle. He was safe. He looked around the room. The girl that he had helped save as well as girl and boy he had fought with were also there. He breathed in deep, tilted his head back, and laughed. He laughed so hard that he tilted over backwards and fell onto his back on the floor, and continued laughing. He quieted down when the words that the boy he had been fighting with minutes prior registered in his mind, and he once again frowned. He had lost.
He shook his head. "No...quite the opposite, actually." Fear once again ran up his spine. "What...happens if we don't kill all of the targets?" His eyes darted between Tomoe and Koi quickly.

Koi felt a pang of loss in his mind, but he couldn't fathom anythign that could be worse than dieing a second time, so he had no real clue as to what would happen. Trying to keep the conversation between the both of them Koi kept with his whisper. "No clue, we only had one mission prior to this one, so we have no real idea what happens when you don't finish them off in time; so, you're guess is as good as mine, hell far as I know nothing could be worse than dieing again, so I'm up for anything...." Koi was just about to mention training with something from the room on the outside world, but shook it off deciding instead to keep it to himself but instead deciding to say, "out of curiosity, if we met that guy again, what do you think would be the best way to beat him, other than running away fi we are one on one with him?"
Brandon felt weird after those intence moments he noticed. He didn't participate none of them, because I was still shock of what actually happened. But all chaos finally ended, and Brandon's mind started to clear out of some things. He starts to remember something very familiar, but then he suddenly forgot it. He wants to remember what he just thought a moment a ago.
"(Damn, this is just pointless)", he thought.
He still did held the black suit in his arms. At those chaotic moments, Brandon had nothing but this black suit to keep on and distrack his stress. He felt something powerful about this suit, when he saw other people in the room using their owns.
Brandon didn't know what to do, so he just ignored other people around him. He just tried to focus in his mind, and think what's actually going on, until he had a weird vision of a woman... After seeing that woman, he somehow shocked (his senses acts weirdly, like an animal or something ) and fell on the floor.
"Hm...well I'd say, just try and find a way to make him stay in one spot. He's too damn agile." Dino states, now somewhat perturbed by thoughts of instantaneous death by the over-sized black marble. His thought process is further slowed by the sight of the nude, attractive girl huddled in a corner. He shakes his head and attempts to continue. "So...what happens-" He starts, but he's interrupted by a strange noise emitting from the Ball.

After another 10 seconds, the ball powers down, leaving the players to discuss the events with themselves. The people in the room hear an audible 'click' as the front door is unlocked.
Koi's attention was brought to the screen when the music, and with the strange penalty he noticed with everyones points, he couldn't help but chuckle. Almost talking to himself, not sure who heard, not caring for that matter he says "There is no way thats all...." Not really able to truely think of anyrthing else, Koi decides to do waht he planned to do after this mission. Take an x-gun and his suit with him to train while on the outside.
The atmosphere had a feeling of uncertain doom to it. As such Tomoe decided not to go forward with her plan to drink with her comrades afterward. She looked around at Dino, Koi and Naomi and wondered how a timid woman afraid of even short contact with other people could protect them.
Everyone seemed to have their parts. Dino seemed to take to leading, Koi was compassionate and chivalrous, Naomi was new but learned fast and Saigo was the quiet but deadly one.
The others she couldn't define...including herself.
Tomoe filled her holsters with guns and overcoat pockets with a sword in each in the hope of improving, but mostly because she had come to realize how powerless she felt without a weapon.
She almost left silently but stopped by Naomi's side and mulled over what to say.
"If you want...I'll walk you home."
