(( Dragon's Lair )) :: While she spoke she waved with her fingers. She didn't quite know what the others would do, but she knew her people, they had gotten ideas by now. And she was not disappointed. A really small version of T'Seva stepped forward but not right next to Jalana, datafrag apprently didn't notice her and a moment later a bright light appeared, reflected by something in the middle of the cavern, distracting the dragon, possibly even blind her for just a moment. :: Atan: Hey, datafrag. Rajel: .oONice work T'Seva Oo. ::Turning slightly to the people behind her.:: Now! :: That was when everyone jumped into action. She saw people hurry around, Raven went off with Teryn, Rue was looking for a better position that wasn't in the way of datafrag's mouth and Ardaris looked for an advantage as well. But the rest was not just standing around. They started to hit the dragon with all they got. It might not be what this dragon was programmed to be defeated with, but she loved that they didn't give up. Every bit of pain would make it easier for the artefacts to do their job. :: [datafrag]: qaStaH nuq?! What are you doing to me you filthy, dishonourable little insects?! Atan: That didn't rhyme. :: Jalana turned back to Datafrag, who hopefully was still distracted. Jalana waited for Dave to do his bit - the next distraction this time in shape of a golden egg, petrification and ice sword following that would hopefully take care of the dragon. They didn't have much time to plan, so she could only hope it would go smoothly. :: :: Keeping an eye on everything, just in case something went wrong and they needed help, she stayed where she was, but her body tense to jump into action at any given moment. She had her hands at the ready, these magical powers needed to be good for something other than hitting the Nercomancer over the head with his own staff. :: :: There it was. Raven called out, protected by Teryn's shield and the dragon paid attention right away. The huge Roc egg of pure gold was just too tempting for datafrag. She was amazed by what kind of size the bag Raven carried could hold though. It was almost as if the egg had been shrung to fit in there, without actually shringing. Illusions par excellence. Now that the Dragon was distracted by the shiny loot, she saw Rue fly through the air, apparently she had found a spot further above from which she had a good view and aim. Rue landed on datafrag's back and rammed the staff with Gorgon's eye right between the wings= . Datafrag did not turn into stone or stopped her movements, but she became slower, like trying to move through mollasses. Jalana blinked slightly, the lights and effects of all these spells were quite something, but she didn't want to look away and then kick her own ass for not paying attention if something happened to her people. Behind datafrag she spotted T'Reshik, as agreed she was getting Saveron. Then like out of nowhere the glistening blade in Ardaris hands appeared, together with the blue skinned woman of course. Jalana wondered if she was just really good at playing her part or if this rage was real. The Andorian pulled her arms back and swung them forward, the momentum ramming the sword into datafrag's long neck. A sizzling sound of ice hitting fire rang in the air, the smell of burnt flesh floated into Jalana's nose. Not for the first time and probably not for the last time. The cut through the scaled neck must have been difficult, but it had another effect. Fire spilled out like a vulcano and it headed right for T'Reshik and Teryn, who used his shield to deflect the fire. :: T'Reshik: ::pointing:: Fire! :: Jalana threw up her hands, trying to move up the wall of golden coins and trinkets as protection, when she suddenly wasn't alone any more. :: Horne: Captain! :: Jacob had jumped to her, crouching in front of her and placed his shield in front of them as protection, she ducked and placed a hand on Jacob's shoulder. :: Rajel: Thank you. Saveron: ? :: Peeking over the edge of the shield she saw the fire dying and the world flickered as it had done many times before. Standing with Jacob she looked around to see if everyone had gotten out okay. She had seen that they could be hurt in here, so there was a chance of that. :: Young: ::To Vehk:: Oh wow.. If it wasn't for you, I'd be toast. Vehk: ::panting:: You're welcome. Atan: I think it's dead. Sindri: I'm not too sure about that.. ::He looked about carefully.:= : This game has rules, so something should change if we achieve a goal? Atan: Let's hope the simulation plays by the rules and lets us out now. Young: ::Sighing:: That would be nice. :: While they talked Jalana climbed over the accumulated treasures to T'Reshik and Saveron, finding Jacob still at her side. She was glad seeing the dragon-napped Queen in one piece and grabbed Saveron's arm to help him over the ever shifting pile of coins. :: Vehk: Stand back. :: At that she looked to Vehk and saw him raise his staff and ram it into the dragon's eye. She was not quite sure why he had done it, but it was a holographic dead decapitated dragon, so it couldn't be any harm. :: Rajel: :: to Saveron:: Are you alright? Saveron: ? Vehk: Are we able to issue commands to the program now? Atan: :: hopefully :: Door? Any: ? Horne: Arch.=C2=A0 ::Nothing:: Yito: Computer end program. Any: ? Yito: Maybe we need to do something else. Unite the queen and king or something. But I'm no expert at these games. Rajel: Not sure how much more united we can be, short of a kiss, and I prefer to keep those for Jerry unless we need to. But killing the dragon should have been the conclusion. Any: ? Horne: Where is Dameroth?=C2=A0 Or was it Damerov?=C2=A0 ::Jacob couldn't= remember::=C2=A0 He seemed to be the one giving us updates and moving us in= the right direction. Vehk: Given the dragon was speaking in Klingon ::He fell silent fo= r a long moment.:: Perhaps Commander Saveron knows more. ::Vehk approached them and bowed his head.:: Commander. I trust you are unharmed? Saveron: ? Sindri: Maybe it's just a lag? ::He spoke optimistically.:: Rajel: Maybe. ::She stepped to the severed dragon head and crouched down in front of it. Reaching out she brushed her hand over the scales, each one almost as big as her palm. It was a magnificent beast she would have loved to study more. She mumbled to herself and halfway to the dragon.:: Too bad you had to threaten my crew and kidnap my First Officer. Horne: We were lucky. Sindri: Um where did my grenades go? :: Jalana didn't really think about what Dag was saying, but then she noticed that her hand was no longer black and it didn't stick out of an armor any more. She leaned her head forward to look at her clothes. She wore the teal dress she had worn when she'd come to the holodeck, and a red lock fell into her view. She hadn't minded the beard, being a man or the dark skin, but it was good to be herself again. Looking over to the others she saw they had been changed back as well.:: Horne: Is it over? Rajel: Well if our transformations are any indication, I would believe it is. Saveron/Yito/(any): Sindri: Can we go now? ::He implored.:: I am so over this quest! Atan: I am glad to be back to my normal size, although I seem to have a lingering craving for mushrooms. Rajel: Then let's try this. Computer, exit. :: And this time, without hesitation, the arch appeared ready to let them go. A whole cliffside fell off her shoulders. :: Any: ? Horne: ::jokingly:: So do you guys want to stay here and debrief? Atan: The only debriefing I want to do is in the lounge with something not synthehol. Any: ? Atan: Shall we? I suppose we should find out what happened first... :: Jalana took a deep breath and nodded. :: Rajel: Let's get out of here, and I believe I'll find Maxwell to ask him what happened. Any: ? Rajel: Oh I thought everyone had seen that. He appeared in the program as a huge floating head and told us he was working on getting us out. Looks like he's back. Any: ? Rajel: Alright everyone, check in your departments and see if anything has been happening outside as well, there were indications. Saveron and I will go and talk with Maxwell. Any/Saveron: ? Rajel: And great work, all of you. It was a very unusual situation and I've seen some great adjusting and working towards the common goal. Thank you. Computer, end Program. ::She looked to the piles of treasures and unbreathing body and head of the dragon and it both disappeared without fanfare.:: Any: ? ((Hallway) :: Leaving the holodeck, it felt a little surreal. This had not felt like a few hours, more like days. Illusions without a doubt. But it dook a moment to get unused to being the Drow King of a whole lot of land and people, able to see in the dark and throw around things with a thought. Almost like after being joined, and remembering the last moments of the life of the former host. It just would take a moment and she'd be all herself again. :: Rajel: I hope the Dragon treated you well. Saveron: ? Rajel: It was... weird? ::She laughed:: An army of skeletal zombies and their big boss tried to kill us but went up in flames thanks to Rue. Everyone did really well, though.
