He flinched a bit at the tree. He totally messed it up, but they could hide it so no harm done. That was a success if nothing else. Mostly because they could hide it. Well, this time he'd see about helping out someone this time, their boy Baxter. So he aimed there to assist him while aiming at the tree this time too to see if he could help him out now as well.
Role: Attacker Action: Assist @ Baxter (the Beekeeper)
That is not a vocalization. That is the sound of Thrash continuing to propel into the tree, spinning like a drill while the rocket-like force of her cannons continues to propel her. Already, her strategy is bearing fruit - the greedy masses have taken to ascending as quickly as possible, aiming for what they view as the most valuable treasures. They can be picked off later - for now, hoarding what has been left behind means a veritable smorgasbord to be distributed to the poor few who are left with nothing.
Quantity is the name of this game - those who aim to claim the brightest gems will simply beat each other down in the process.

"Ka-Ka-KA! Curious, I couldn't even spot that one!" Legacy seemed pleased at being able to uncover a gift, although he was mildly confused and irritated that he couldn't directly target the gifts. Strange, normally unless his attacks were directly avoided or interfered with, his aim was normally dead on. Speaking of aim actually, he wondered about something.
Legacy crushed two of his Ornaments before taking aim at the now exposed third tier. "Chokhmah..." He uttered, applying even more complex calculations to his aiming processes, then once more firing a burst of gun fire at Ornaments and hoping to get higher valued ones.
Legacy applies his Omni-Aimers to his attacks to see if that makes a difference and fires on Ornaments once again.
The final Garland Barrier falls, and StrifeMan looks up with hunger in his eyes as his unforgiving shadow rips through the material. Eying what had previously been hidden, StrifeMan's gaze comically lights up with the image of the star in his pupils, and he releases a blood-curdling howl - it was not quite the full nor red moon, but, the large star looked promising. The vector for chaos wanted it.
"Kyahehahehaheahaha-wuho! The clinky, pretty, gold! Such a beautiful star! Could I use it and throw it? Perhaps its points would inflict new pain StrifeMan had never felt before . . . hahehahaea!"
Haphazardly dropping the two ornmanets he had collected in greed, StrifeMan bounds up the tree as far as he can make it in a single leap, claws growing out tendrils of blood to grip back onto the wood from afar, snapping back against the trunk.
Slowly making his way up to the top of the tree, StrifeMan reached out a tentative claw, a trail of blood connecting him to his prize as he tries to lift the star. As with any moment of great suspense, this star, this twisted incident of fate . . . it would require another help.
[CLIMBING ACTION - Climb to Lv 3, sacrificing both currently held Ornaments. Grabbing the star.]
[INVENTORY - Candycane GiftBox]
Vytrex, interested in the star higher up the tree, smashes yet another set of ornaments upon his hammer to increase its size, before, once again, smashing it against the trunk. It never got old, just the hammerer at his block . . .
The boy saw the glittering star and could only be awestruck by its glimmer. He immediately dropped the clanking balls as he clawed his way to the star and started grabbing at it, as if trying to hug it with all of his little might.
Nightshade, seeing as Nib wanted to grab that heavy star all by himself, decided to give out a helping hand. He looked over to Thrash. "Here sis! Catch!" He said, throwing both ornaments at her before quickly hopping up and landing right beside the boy.
"Here. Let me help with that." The juuka said with a smile, grabbing the star by the opposite end and using all his Beast and not Beast powers to lift the thing off the tip of the tree. [Action] Sac Silver balls 2&5 to climb tier 3 then help Nib with the Gold Star.
Baxter gazed upon the majestic star atop the tree. It was like he himself. Perfect in every way, golden, and surely possessed a waxy center of dynamite dance moves. It must be his for the gang. Scrambling around the tree Baxter spiders around up to the top, aiding the others with his clearly superior strength he attempts to hoist the sacred object up!
": I'm "♥♪!?", but it's hard to pronounce so... call me Geno, after the doll." Gen: All American. The Cobalt Mirage: All the time. Shast: IN AMERICA "They're so far below the understanding of how it could work that it physically hurts me"
She paused as a package came flying down out of the tree, seemingly courtesy of Nightshade. She nodded her thanks at the man before she wondered if she could get to the star...but then another thought struck her and she blinked, cocking her head to the side. She watched the climbers up on the tree top for a moment before her gaze moved down over the tree, to the slight devastation that they'd caused to it, as well as the Gates of Fortune itself, decked out in a wonderfully festive yule cheer. "Mr. Saint?" she asked, glancing over her shoulder at the man before she turned fully to face him, turning her back to the tree for the moment. "This has been a wonderful time, and I thank you for putting so much effort into making something enjoyable for so many people. I know that you probably wrapped this yourself, and that you're getting enjoyment from watching the good cheer amongst everyone, but even still," she spoke, coming forward, holding the gift that had come from Nightshade. "I know that when I get gifts, I often get things that I know that I will enjoy, so that a part of me goes with the gift to whom I'm giving it to. And this was yours first, and now it's come to me...but I would like it to come back to you," she said, giving the man a cheery smile as she extended the Newspaper Package.
"I think that if you've got it here for someone to find and get enjoyment from, then that enjoyment should be passed on, and there's no greater gift than giving. So I want you to have it, to thank you for all of this," she finished, still holding out the Newspaper Package to him.
Action: Presenting Saint with the Newspaper Package as thanks for running the Gates of Fortune
With the simple tinsel barrier lowered for the attackers, Asymptote, not feeling up to climbing the tree further since he didn't have much more time to grab much of anything, Asymptote would swing his way across the tree and grab one of the silver bulbs that hung on it's branches, he wasn't able to climb further, granted, he didn't feel like climbing further. But upon closer inspection, saw a simple gift bag in the area where Legacy had attacked, swinging back over there, he grabbed it and sent it off, keeping the Blue Snow Box in his burlap sack.
Action: grab Gift Bag (Sent), Silver Bulb 13 Spoils: Blue Snow Box, Gold Bulb 3, Silver Bulb 13
(All the climbers not opening the Tinsel Barrier like bros haha.)
Looked like they were all at the treetop now. That barrier was in the way so there was no way for him to assist them with it, so for the time being he may as well work on at least grabbing one of the balls for himself. So he aimed carefully so he wouldn't hit the ball directly and fired, aiming mostly to clip it from where it was so it'd fall off and down to him instead.
Mayura continues her rescue op, and no matter the results of this one, she walks over to Saint and Krystania afterword, speaking to Saint in her monotone voice.
"Acknowledgement: Mr. Saint file extension EXE. Do you know why they do not want these beautiful spheres. They are pretty, yet they throw them away. Can you return these to them? I do not understand what all this is still, but looking at your floating head device inspires me. I wish to be able to spread a prophecy that will make the most people happy one day. I appreciate your assistance by being the Navi you are, and you as well, Ms. Krystania file extension unavailable."

Esperanza placed the ornament in her inventory to allow for here to scout from her current placement on the christmas tree. A shot fired close to her position from a random navi that she didn't recognize while she was doing her search. Esperanza observed the navi with piercing eyes, but what prevented her from adding a not so nice comment was the appearance of a hidden gift as result to the navi's reckless move.
After Esperanza pull the gift she continued her way to pick on the next ornament that she came towards.
