Alright, great. Gimme a moment.



Despite Erin Quill's failure to show up in person due to his untimely death, the Orchestra-made hologram of him steps to the front of the meeting room containing the Orchestra. Taking up a central position, it begins to conduct.
The trumpets begin to sound.


I don't need a reason why!
With this, the percussion instruments begin to play.
Why not?
Just cause!


The Orchestra now seems to be reaching a higher potential, and the sound waves distort the air in front of everyone into a moving picture.

What a view, that's a long drop;
I brought a wingsuit, now I wanna jump off!
Packin' more action than any action flick,
Just like the Expendables on an acid trip!
I'm headin' back into Medici, got some ass to kick;
Attention Generale, you asked for this?

Apiks seems to be displeased. The hologram continues to focus intently on conducting.
You'll have a fit when I make you look inadequate:
I'll attach a grappling hook to your ass and hitch it to the back of the fastest whip, the gas I'll hit
And drag your bastard ass while I'm laughin', bitch!
I do it just cause, but my cause is just;
I guess I got just cause after all I must.
The laws that they put on us, I don't wanna trust,
I call that a just cause to blow all this up


Several people are looking awkwardly at the hologram now. It says nothing. Gwolfski appears to be at ease, however.

Yo Michael Bay, did I make you proud?
Nothing like a big explosion to lay 'em out.
Taking down your bases, raze 'em to the ground;
You can watch the fireworks if you hang around.
I'm not the kinda guy to never make a sound.
I got a lot of C4, here, take a pound!
Blow 'em sky high, they won't even make it down;
Sorry 'bout the bridge, you'll have to find another way around!


The hologram now starts to conduct more vigorously, and it seems to concentrate harder.

Yo commies, hit the road
The hologram looks pleased at this insult to "commies".
Cause Rico's comin' home;
Lock load, let's start the show
Watch out, it's 'bout to blow!
I'll keep these bad guys in line
And I call that peace of mind;
I don't feel like bein' nice
And I don't need a reason why!


The hologram returns to conducting as it had been doing prior to this section.

Call me Rico Rodriguez;
Keep it in your pants girl, I'm free on the weekends!
I got Di Ravello to go off the deep end.
Why? Just cause, I don't need a freakin' reason!
I met a couple rebels now I'm making friends,
Call me the menace of the Mediterranean.
But I'll do you a big favor, get rid of this dictator
Listen, I'm sick of your shit, suck on my dick, haters!

Everyone, including the hologram, winces at the line.
Look at there there! What? That's a big drop!
Hey grandma, you ready for lift off?
Call reinforcements! Hey shut that thing off, or I'll send you off this cliff like a human slingshot!
If you got a problem, son you can shove it;
Who needs a helicopter when I'm flyin' up above it?
Now I'm rockin' this government while I'm topplin' monuments and there's nobody stoppin' me because I'm the one running this, I'll
light you dunces up like some blunts;
It's an addiction just like a drug,
Cause its fun blowing stuff up, I love it so much,
Screw body doubles, I do all of my stunts!
You're a pyromaniac and you have to stop!
Actually I'm on vacation and I have a job.
Strollin' down the coast, actin' like I'm Hasselhoff,
But you can call me NASA cause I'm blastin' off!


The distortions briefly also display a strange symbol over a picture of the night sky. One forumite starts to feel cave adaptation sickness and has to leave the room.
Spoiler (click to show/hide)
Once again, the hologram seems to put more focus into it's conducting, and the chorus starts up again.

Yo commies, hit the road
Cause Rico's comin' home;
Lock load, let's start the show
Watch out, it's 'bout to blow!
I'll keep these bad guys in line
And I call that peace of mind;
I don't feel like bein' nice
And I don't need a reason why!


The Orchestra becomes slightly - slightly - quieter as the hologram exits "chorus mode", and it becomes apparent that the hologram has actually been the one singing. It begins as segment where it's more "rhythmic talking", however.

I'll meet the guy who runs this country of mine;
Soon he won't be alive, that dude just needs to die.
The name's Rico, pleased to meet you,
This scenery's divine.
Terrorizin' these people's lives, I just don't need a reason why.


The Orchestra returns to its original volume, and the song resumes its normal course.

Take wing its time to soar;
Strap up let's head to war!
But I don't care what it's for
As long as someone's butt is sore!
I'm an adrenaline junkie, trust me,
Cliff jumping, what a sport!
Oh my god what's he waiting for
Hurry up, just pull the cord!

I'm living on the edge, about to jump off,
That's entertainment, hear the applause.
I'll shut dictators up when I bust jaws;
And I got a good reason: Just cause!


The hologram once more goes into "chorus mode". Everyone gets the feeling that the song is ending soon.

Yo commies, hit the road
Cause Rico's comin' home;
Lock load, let's start the show
Watch out, it's 'bout to blow!
I'll keep these bad guys in line
And I call that peace of mind;
I don't feel like bein' nice
And I don't need a reason why!




The music winds down. The hologram turns away from the orchestra as the distortions form the words "Download Complete."
They then shift again. Gwolfski appears to be quite excited.



OOC: And that, my friends, is how the Orchestra runs programs. :D

Thanks, EP, for the picture.

I'm not letting you go uncredited, regardless of your retcons and edits.  :P

Everyone must know that it is Enemy Post who knows how to put pictures into his posts, and not me!

Apiks seems rather displeased at the anti-establishment sentiment of some of the songs, but refrains from saying anything. It does good to know how things work sometimes.

Sorry, mate, Just Cause 3 is just a pretty seditious game; any song that the Orchestra may derive from it will be as such, too. The good news is that now that it's downloaded, you will never have to listen to that song ever again.

As for combat training, may I suggest Skyrim? It is more applicable to reality, and we can use it to train people's skills in a safe environment, rather than have them train in actual combat.

You don't know that IC.
Nobody knows that IC.
I know that, and you know that, but we are not acknowledging that IC.
IC, nobody knows what the song that the Orchestra makes will be like until it's already playing.

story post (v. rare) :

I had a dream. Of death and destruction. I dreamt of a troll necrothingymaster. It killed half our population, before falling down the well. Erin, Ruhn, Imic, all dead.

I dreamt of time flowing backwards.

I dreamt of a god, floating in the sky.

That was indeed an odd dream. I must prepare for the assualt.

Oh great, the floating god is still there. I'll have a decent look at it later.

Right everybody! Listen up! NOBODY leaves the fort!

*5 mins later*

GET BACK IN, IDIOTS! At least I can depend on the milita- nope. RIP.

We're not dead yet? How?

good news! The necrotroll never arrived! Yet I fear he shall return. we must prepare!

Also Erin's ghost did a real cool thing with his magic thing. I must get him to do it again.

((save corruption))

So, uh, Erin's not dead?
Cool.

Also: what in the world did "floating god" mean?

emmmm... The world is slightly on fire.

It;s the floating guy, i think

the military is on a tree....

The floaring God has raised the dead. Our own dead turned on us. I have failed. I could not protect them. Erin, Ruhn, Imic, Arx ....... I'm sorry.#

F--- there's zombies evrywhere!

A plume of smoke is rising from our courtyard. I fear the worst.

A goblin came in today. We had a nice discussion about Direct Intervention. He then slunk off to discuss animal cruelty with Apix.
