Super Smash Quest - Story - Chapter 132: Dark Beings of Future Past
Date: 6:03:49 PM, February 2nd; 8:25:11 PM, February 2nd; 12:48:47 PM, February 3rd; 4:55:50 PM, February 4th, 2005.
Metal Man (GM): Two guards, a console with two blue buttons.
Gibby tries finding the 'disable electricity' button.
Wolfman chooses Rock for some strange reason.
Aribar: "...Hey, what are those buttons?"
Charles Magellean choose rock as well.
Wolfman: "Let's try this again..." *He chooses scissors.*
Dark Koopa: "They call Grunty for help."
Charles Magellean: "Rock... paper... scissors... shoot!"
Duo Koopa: *Nods.*
Charles Magellean chose scissors.
Dark Koopa: "Now then... could you give us the mushrooms?"
Wolfman: "Are we supposed to read minds?"
Metal Man (GM): Gibby: Another INT check.
Aribar: "To get rid of the intruder?"
Wolfman chooses scissors.
Charles Magellean: "Rock... paper... scissors... shoot!" *He chose rock again...*
Wolfman: "I thought you'd go for paper... what must I do?"
Metal Man (GM): Gibby: You find the button you want.
Charles Magellean: "Geez..."
Dark Koopa: "Yes."
Wolfman: "...Locos, this isn't funny."
Gibby presses it.
Metal Man (GM): Wolf, Locos: The gate is now no longer electrified.
Charles Magellean: "Rock... paper... scissors... shoot!"
Aribar heads up the steps. "Stay here..."
Metal Man (GM): They both nod.
Wolfman has paper.
Charles Magellean smacks into the gate.
Metal Man (GM): Aribar: You find Gibby sitting on a chair... facing a console with 300 different buttons. Locos: You knock the gate down.
Aribar: "WHAT are you doing?"
Gibby: "Uhh... what to press now..."
Charles Magellean: "Let's go inside..."
Gibby looks to Ari.
Wolfman follows Locos through... or rather, over the gate now."
Gibby: "HI! Just... uhh... pressing buttons... helping out and stuff."
Charles Magellean: "Let's go in power formation." *He will follow Wolf now.*
Aribar: "We have enemies to kill... Take this." *He throws Gibby a Super Mushroom and then casts Minor Healing on himself two times.*
Wolfman goes towards the tower, where Aribar and Gibby went.
Gibby catches it, and eats it. "Thanks..."
Metal Man (GM): You enter the tower and meet the Dark Koopa and Duo Koopa.
Dark Koopa: "Hey, are you those friends of the guy in the costume?"
Charles Magellean goes to stand slightly in front of wolf... but still to the side.
Wolfman: "Regrettably, yes. I'm trying to find a frisbee a girl lost up here. He just acts like a goofball at times."
Charles Magellean: "I am a friend of his. Yet he is not in a costume."
Metal Man (GM): You see a yellow frisbee hit the Dark Koopa in the side of the head.
Charles Magellean: "!" *He gets shocked and backs off a wee bit.* "...You all right?"
Dark Koopa: "Ow... my forehead..."
Wolfman follows where the frisbee went.
Metal Man (GM): Lizzy walks in. The frisbee hit the back wall.
Wolfman goes to the back wall to pick it up.
Lizzy: "Well, I'm not really a girl. I am a he. And... thanks for my frisbee... kind of strange that you play fetch, despite being an advanced metal thing."
Charles Magellean: "We better head to where Ari and Gibby are, Wolf."
Gibby stares at the buttons... and is tempted to press one at random. "So... beautiful..."
Lizzy: "...Oh. Yeah. I am friends of the visitors."
Charles Magellean: "You are welcome Lizzy. We must go now."
Lizzy: "We are button inspectors."
Wolfman: "Well, can't a guy get a frisbee for someone?"
Dark Koopa: "...Whatever. We'll guard the gate."
Charles Magellean: "I am not an inspector."
Metal Man (GM): They both go outside.
Lizzy: "Sure you can."
Wolfman feels insulted that he was compared to a dog. He returns the frisbee to Lizzy.
Charles Magellean: "Well... we'll inspect to see if they're all right."
Wolfman: "Let's start inspecting then." *He goes upstairs to where the inspecting must take place.*
Charles Magellean follows Wolf.
Metal Man (GM): Lizzy has acquired: Lethal frisbee! Lizzy follows you up the stairs.
Gibby brings his "hand" close to a button...
Metal Man (GM): You see Aribar, sleeping on the ground... and Gibby. About to press a button. On a control panel with 300 buttons.
Wolfman steps over Aribar. "Gibby, what are you doing?"
Lizzy: "...do you know what that button does?"
Gibby: "...NO!" *He presses it.*
Charles Magellean: "Then don't..."
Gibby: "MWA HA HA HA! THE POWER! THE POWER!!!"
Metal Man (GM): *BEEP* *BOOP.*
Wolfman: "Rule number 125. Never ask someone about a button that they will press. Lizzy, you are going to get a handbook one of these days."
Metal Man (GM): On the screen, dead ahead, much like Nova's... a little kid with purple eyes appears.
Lizzy: "Well, I try."
Gibby: (*_*) "Yes... yes... beautiful button..."
???: "WHO DARES INVADE MY LAND AND WAKE ME UP???? And who are you?"
Charles Magellean: "The knight that is shaped like a ball woke you up."
Avon: "I am... Avon. The computer made to destroy Nintendus."
Charles Magellean points to Gibby.
Gibby: "...It was instinct... I'm sorry!"
Avon: "Well, thanks for waking me up... Gibby. For it appears we have encountered a large amount of intruders."
Gibby: "...you're welcome?"
Wolfman really hopes those intruders aren't us...
Charles Magellean: "Actually, he woke you up on accident because he has a tendency to press button at random. He likes to press buttons at random for no reason."
Gibby: "Yeah... yeah... LIKE THIS!" *He presses another button.*
Avon: "All of which have gotten past my defenses... Grunty Industries needs my power. If you were to re-route it... the balance of the universe would be destroyed."
Gibby: "MWA HA HA HA!"
Metal Man (GM): Gibby: You hear the alarms again.
Charles Magellean: "..."
Dark Koopa: (Outside) "Ahhhhhhhh!!!"
Charles Magellean walks up to Gibby.
Metal Man (GM): You then hear a lot of laser fire. And missiles.
Charles Magellean: *Yoink!*
Gibby: "...I HAVE A PROBLEM!"
Wolfman: "At least you admitted it."
Charles Magellean pulls him away from the buttons.
Gibby: "I can't help it... they're just... THERE! So shiny... so many buttons..."
Avon: "Now then... I must destroy you. Unless... Grunty sent you. Prove that Grunty sent you, and I shall let you go."
Charles Magellean: "Gibby... open your dex and see the buttons there." *He looks up to Avon.*
Avon: "Otherwise... you are to be terminated."
Gibby sighs, and does so.
Wolfman is staying quiet right now.
Charles Magellean: "Sir, we were not sent by Avon nor can we prove that she sent us. We were sent here to restore power to one of the twenty facilities that power Nova."
Metal Man (GM): Lizzy is also just being quiet.
Charles Magellean looks to Wolfman.
Avon: "NOVA???? I THOUGHT I KILLLEEEED HIM!!!! You are the most horrible people on the planet!"
Charles Magellean: "I know this since I looked in ari's dex."
Gibby is quietly enjoying button world.
Charles Magellean gives a thumbs up and looks back to avon.
Avon: "Trying to... save the world..."
Wolfman acknowledges the thumbs up... though he still stays quiet.
Charles Magellean: "To be honest, I just become aware of this situation only 23 minutes ago."
Avon: "How inefficient. I shall destroy you in 10 minutes to save you time. Defenses activated."
Metal Man (GM): the way out shuts closed.
Wolfman has to speak now.
Charles Magellean: "Why do you do this?"
Metal Man (GM): *SMASH* A fist smashes through the TV.
Gibby: "...that's a bad thing."
Wolfman: "Look... if we don't help this Nova guy here, the entire planet is going to go haywire due to messed up gravity and physics and stuff."
Avon: (Multi-voices) "Zio has told me so. You must be terminated. You will not survive this."
Charles Magellean: "Tell me this though..."
Metal Man (GM): *SMASH* A 15-foot tall mecha, humanoid, with two different looking fists, flies out of the monitor. Which then fixes itself magically.
Charles Magellean: "Do you know of the Questers, and more specifically... someone known as Charles L. Magellean?"
Gibby: "...that's a REALLY bad thing!"
Charles Magellean: "For once we agree."
Avon: "Stop feeding the flames of your own destruction. For I have enough firepower already."
Gibby: "...maybe I should press a button... you know, to help us... yeah that's it..."
Charles Magellean: "As far as I am concerned, you will not touch me."
Avon: "Then you will have to escape. I am everywhere in this room."
Charles Magellean: "You are property of Grunty, correct?"
Metal Man (GM): For a split second, you see the little boy appear EVERYWHERE at once, about 20 different projections doing different things.
Avon: "I am Grunty's ally."
Charles Magellean: "Shoo!?"
Gibby: "AHHH! CREEPY!"
Avon: "I am property of Zio."
Charles Magellean looks around surprised then looks to Avon."
Lizzy: "Gaaah! Can we just trash this thing and get out of here already?"
Wolfman looks at his smash dex, under 'mission objectives'...smash, or save? He forgot.
Charles Magellean: "Attacking me without being provoked would be a breach of the contract signed by the Magellean Military and Grunty Industries. And the provocation must be of physical contact."
Avon: "True. I should make sure you don't escape to tell of it."
Metal Man (GM): Avon's right first powers up and shoots one of those deathrays at Locos.
Metal Man (GM): 80% damage.
Charles Magellean: "You shoot me... and Grunty will automatically know of this."
Wolfman: .oO(Well, there goes the shot)
Avon: "I'm sorry, what did you say? I do not care for grown-ups and their authority!"
Wolfman: "Great... we are dealing with a cyber brat."
Gibby whips out the gun.
Charles Magellean is sizzled.
Metal Man (GM): *Defeat at a Blow.*
Avon: "I shall terminate you all for breaking in. None mess with Avon. Not even Nova."
Metal Man (GM): Oh, I mean... Avon, Gibby, Wolfman.
Charles Magellean: "Poor, poor, spoiled kid."
Metal Man (GM): Avon already took his turn. Make that... Avon, Gibby, Wolfman, Locos, Lizzy.
Lizzy: "About time we destroyed this... thing!"
Gibby uses the dex to scan him.
Charles Magellean: "Already, Grunty has been made aware of this breach of contract since the bio-scanner I gave her has shown that I was attacked unprovoked."
Dex: "...Unknown. Unknown. Statistics cannot be uploaded. This machine is unscannable."
Charles Magellean: "You will regret this breaking of rule...junior."
Gibby: "Crap... well then take THIS!"
Charles Magellean smiles sadistically.
Wolfman: "What do you suggest then Locos; a spanking?"
Gibby puts the dex away, and shoots the machine.
Avon: "I do what I please. I'll destroy Grunty if that's what you want!"
Metal Man (GM): The machine is hit.
Avon: "Ow! you meanie! I'll crush you!"
Wolfman gets out his Beam Saber, and starts off with a dance of death... hopefully there is enough room for it.
Gibby twirls his gun around all fancy like.
Metal Man (GM): Miss hit miss hit.
Avon: "Stop hitting me, you tin toy!"
Charles Magellean: "A representative of Grunty Industries will soon come and dispose of the breacher(s)."
Avon: "I shall terminate Grunty Industries if they touch me. I can cause meteorites to hit them... right now! I could make the planet explode! I'll make YOU explode!"
Wolfman then rears up his left hand, and attempts to gut the insides with a smashing hook. (subtracting -2 accuracy)
Metal Man (GM): Barely hit.
Charles Magellean: "You are of her ally. Not even you could take down one of her representatives."
Avon: "You don't notice something. I control this planet. Unless you're breathing nitrogen, I could kill everything by destroying the atmosphere."
Gibby: "...he makes a strong point there, Locos."
Wolfman doesn't need oxygen at least... he could be in water without much of a problem.
Charles Magellean: "None control the planet." *He tries to use his... control quirk?*
Metal Man (GM): While the machine fails an INT check, and is controlled... something bad happens.
Charles Magellean gives a glare from his eye. Upon contact with his opponent...
Metal Man (GM): A portal of darkness opens, revealing Zio.
Zio: "You dare try to control MY machine? Be gone with you!"
Charles Magellean: "It attacked us first. We had to use self-defense."
Metal Man (GM): Zio glows, and throws... a Megid at Locos before disappearing again. Must have been a projection.
Gibby: "...oh that's just peachy."
Metal Man (GM): Locos: INT check. A HUGE pillar of flame engulfs Locos for 90% damage. A HUGE pillar of flame engulfs Locos for 100% damage.
Gibby: "...that's evil."
Metal Man (GM): Locos is killed by a beam of fire, prematurely ending his turn.
Wolfman: "Now I wonder who the brat is... Avon or Zio."
Lizzy: "...Uh... take this, robot!"
Metal Man (GM): Lizzy throws a frisbee at Avon's head.
Charles Magellean absorbs the spell to heal himself at the cost of much of his life force.
Metal Man (GM): *SMASH* 20% damage. Locos returns, minus 1 life.
Avon: "I was just practicing there... trying to control me was a waste of time. Zio will protect me from such things... he put a special magic on me which destroys people who try that. Now then. Take this!"
Metal Man (GM): Avon reaches out to grab Wolfman with the left first.
Charles Magellean: "You really are a little jerk, aren't you?"
Metal Man (GM): Wolfman is grabbed. He is thusly hit by...
Wolfman isn't lucky enough to avoid the grab.
Metal Man (GM): Two fireballs and a bone. 45% damage. Then, the chest of the robot opens, firing three missiles at gibby.
Gibby: "EEP! AGAIN!" *He dodges them all.*
Metal Man (GM): 20% per hit, if any.
Wolfman gets damaged a good deal... not enough for another Crush, but close.
Gibby: "Whew... close one."
Metal Man (GM): Then, he throws Wolfman at Gibby.
Wolfman tries to avoid that collision.
Metal Man (GM): ...Both Wolfman and Gibby collide, both take 30% damage.
Wolfman: "You tell me." *Ping.*
Gibby fires two shots into the opened chest.
Metal Man (GM): Hit hit. double damage with each!
Avon: "Gaaah! My weak spot!"
Charles Magellean: "I look at you... and all I see is a scared little child."
Avon: "I'll crush you!"
Gibby: "HA! Take that!"
Metal Man (GM): The open chest closes.
Charles Magellean: "You are an open book. I already know your integrity and strength without even needing a Smash Dex."
Wolfman thinks he has an idea... He goes to the Frisbee that Lizzy threw, and holds it in his left hand.
Lizzy: "...Don't lose it!"
Wolfman then uses his Howl Buster on the right hand to attempt an experiment... charging the buster with the frisbee... think Sailor Moon or something if that's possible.
Metal Man (GM): Wolfman: Roll Str check. That is very bad.
Charles Magellean: "...I smell Gold coming at 182 mph an hour."
Metal Man (GM): *CRIT!* That used 1 action... now fire it. You've charged it up quite a bit. But can you hit with it?
Wolfman could charge it again if he wanted... but a level 2 charge will do nicely. He fires the two shots, with the frisbee carrying it...
Metal Man (GM): The frisbee will add 20 damage. The ultra-powerful shot BLASTS the robot in the head.
Gibby: "Nice shot, Wolf!"
Wolfman is a little dumbfounded "Thanks... I think."
Avon: "OWOWOWOWOWOWOWOW!" *Holds his now flaming mecha's head.*
Charles Magellean: "Perhaps we can settle this with a compromise?"
Avon: "A compromise? What would that be? It better not involve Grunty."
Gibby: "...are you STILL trying to make peace?"
Charles Magellean has no attacks, so he's gotta... be resourceful. "Me and my partners are willing to... give you something in exchange for allowing us to leave alive."
Avon: "Okay. That sounds great."
Charles Magellean: "Or something similar."
Avon: "You could just leave alive too."
Metal Man (GM): Avon opens the door out for you.
Gibby: "Uhh... thanks."
Wolfman gets the frisbee and returns it to Lizzy.
Lizzy: "Thank you."
Charles Magellean: "You seem to be a powerful adversary. Perhaps I can interest you in a trade."
Avon: "What type of trade?"
Wolfman nods. "Just don't ask where I came up with the crazy idea."
Charles Magellean: "In return for activating this facility to revive a part of Nova's power, can there be something that is equally beneficial to you?"
Avon: "...Doing that kills me. Do you think I want to die other than from fighting you?"
Charles Magellean: "No. No you would not. Then... we have no choice."
Gibby: "Good... beat him up!"
Charles Magellean: "Avon, close the doors and let us resume this battle to the death."
Avon: "Very well."
Metal Man (GM): Doors shut.
Charles Magellean: "Just know that that gold that I smelled is drawing ever closer."
Metal Man (GM): Lizzy hurls the frisbee at the machine. *CRIT!* 40% damage. Avon fires more missiles at Gibby. 20% per hit, if any. Then Avon tries to grab Locos.
Gibby gets hit once. "Gah..."
Metal Man (GM): Locos is grabbed, he is effected by.. ...Two bullet bills appear... A Koopa shell hits him for 10%...
Charles Magellean: "Where is that blasted Golden Warrior."
Metal Man (GM): He's stabbed by a dagger twice for 16% damage... A bone hits him for 5%... He's hit by an ice block for 18%... And two fireballs, which deal a total of 40% fire damage. Then, to end his turn, he fires more missiles at Wolfman. Two bulelt bills have joined the battle.
Gibby shoots at the opened chest again.
Wolfman is NOT having the best of luck with dodging.
Metal Man (GM): Two hits, each with double damage.
Avon: "Not again! Ow!"
Charles Magellean wriggles his fingers.
Metal Man (GM): Bullet Bills. The first one attacks Wolfman. 10% if that hits.
Wolfman hopes to have a close call.
Metal Man (GM): The second one attacks Locos. 10% if that hits.
Wolfman doesn't... good thing he has Grunty's fake Mario hat on. He takes out as many birds as he can with one stone... he curls up, spreads out, and howls the Wolf Crush towards the enemies. (no luck roll this time guys... pray I hit SOMETHING)
Charles Magellean: "...!"
Metal Man (GM): Hit. All of them hit.
Charles Magellean checks his backpocket.
Metal Man (GM): The two bullet bills are blasted. You may attack again.
Wolfman never attacks again after a Crush.
Charles Magellean gets out a very peculiar scrapbook-like notepad. "Before we say goodbye... I have only one question." *He opens one of the pages and holds out a pen.* "...Would you give me your signature?"
Gibby: "...Locos, what the heck are you DOING?"
Avon: "...Whatever you want."
Charles Magellean: "I have a custom from where I come. To everyone you meet, you ask for the signature."
Metal Man (GM): Avon takes the pen and writes his signature on the page. It's got a small a, a large v, a middle-sized o, and an angular, line-made n.
Gibby: "...you've never asked for MY signature! ;_;"
Charles Magellean: "...Sign it on the third line downward... you to make sure I don't get slapped around... you approach me. Thank you." *He looks to Gibby.*
Metal Man (GM): Avon gives you the pen back.
Wolfman really wonders why Locos is like this now...
Charles Magellean: "Well Gibby... I wasn't able to have this."
Gibby: "...I just hope there's a point to all this."
Charles Magellean: "And now, you and I are bonded. From this point on, I know your secrets and you know mine."
Charles Magellean: "Consider this a blessing."
Gibby just wants to blast him away.
Charles Magellean: "Now onto business."
Avon: "...Uhhhh... yeah. thanks."
Wolfman just wants to know what Locos is talking about.
Charles Magellean puts away his signature book "Now for that one little weakness you like to keep to yourself." *He tries his new Thief Quirk.*
Metal Man (GM): You snatch off of Avon... a data disk!
Charles Magellean leaves behind an after-image of where he was. "...It's stuck!"
Metal Man (GM): CRIT! You have stolen a mysterious disk off of Avon.
Charles Magellean snatches the disk and shifts away from Avon.
Avon: "No! Not my... data disk..."
Charles Magellean: "Something about this you hold dear... but I can't seem to know what it is."
Gibby: "Data disk?"
Charles Magellean: "Yes... it was one of his secrets."
Lizzy: "Some people like to play with their enemies... and I just like to bash them." *Throws Frisbee.*
Metal Man (GM): *SMACK* 20% damage. Avon
Charles Magellean puts the thing away in his wallet.
Metal Man (GM): Avon unloads a deathray on Gibby.
Metal Man (GM): 80% damage. if he isn't dead-dead.
Metal Man (GM): Gibby loses another life... he's down to 1.
Wolfman gets out his Beam Saber again... he starts another round of dancing.
Metal Man (GM): Hit hit.
Charles Magellean: "Avon, tell me since we're Clund`nakuns. What are you hiding on this disk that you hold ever so dear?"
Wolfman then follows up with another left smashing hook at -2 accuracy to beat the information out of him.
Avon: "...I am hiding my free AI... the original, at that. ...Don't let it lose!"
Metal Man (GM): CRIT
Avon: "Zio... made a backup. That is the backup!"
Charles Magellean: "Hmmm hmmm hmmm. Seems now it works for me."
Metal Man (GM): Avon's mech is nearly busted.
Charles Magellean: "I know this is a long shot... but!"
Avon: "Argh! Not enough firepower... this area has pathetic enemies!"
Charles Magellean shifts to thief again... but trips as soon as the after-image is made.
Metal Man (GM): Avon tries to hit Locos with missiles for his counter-attack. 20% per hit..... We do not have counter counters anymore.
Charles Magellean sacrifices his life force again to recharge his energy.
Metal Man (GM): *BAM.*
Metal Man (GM): You have one more action, Locos.
Charles Magellean: "Back off, Avon. You won't have your way this time."
Avon: "But... I can't just let you destroy me! This place is where I live."
Charles Magellean: "Would you die in battle... or cease to exist when Nova is activated?"
Avon: "It's a vicious thing. There is Nova here, or me. No room in memory for both. I cannot live when Nova is here. I would be deleted."
Charles Magellean: "Then become that."
Metal Man (GM): Lizzy continues throwing the frisbee. *ZIP* *BONK* 20%
Avon: "No... I'll delete you instead!"
Charles Magellean: "If you will not find an alternative, then you deserve to go bye-bye."
Metal Man (GM): A deathray flies at Locos. 60% if that hits.
Gibby shoots at the chest twice.
Metal Man (GM): Hit hit
Avon: "Defense systems... destroyed... Massive datacorruption has occurred."
Metal Man (GM): The lights flash.
Avon: "Unable to maintain systems. Program NOVA.EXE is breaking through security hole. ...Program backup completed. Program deleted."
Metal Man (GM): *BZT* The lights go out...
Charles Magellean: "In the immortal words of Duke Nukem..."
Gibby: "Ah... I can't see."
Charles Magellean voice changes to match Duke's.
Gibby: "...is Duke Nukem here?"
Wolfman just chuckles at that remark.
Metal Man (GM): The lights go back on.
Gibby: "...stupid lights."
Nova: "I have restored Power. Power is at 100%."
Nova: "1 of 19 facilities are online."
Wolfman: "So that's one down, and 19 more to go, right?"
Nova: "Area has been secured for good. "*Yes.*"
Gibby sits and watches.
Charles Magellean: "What should I do with the spoiled boy's data disk?"
Nova: "Submit it for scanning."
Charles Magellean: "Very well."
Nova: "I shall gather what I can of Zio's plan from it."
Metal Man (GM): Nova's hologram points to a slot in the wall.
Charles Magellean takes out the disk and inserts it into the slot.
Metal Man (GM): Everyone gains 800 EXP for the mission.
Nova: "It shall take a while."
Wolfman makes note of the different holograms... SIMBER, Nova... what else? He has gained a level.
Metal Man (GM): A warp home appears, as well.
SIMBER: *Appears* "Welcome to the ALBERT system, Nova."
Metal Man (GM): Wait. You gained 3040 coins from that.
Nova: "Welcome to my system, SIMBER."
Wolfman gets back at base.
SIMBER: "I find your system to be highly advanced, but brute force approach rather than intelligence..."
Nova: "That is of no issue."
Charles Magellean is back as well.
Nova: "I was not made to argue."
SIMBER: "Very well..."
Metal Man (GM): You all warp back to base.
Wolfman chooses the Resourceful Quirk.
Metal Man (GM): Grunt: This level of enemy attacks in droves. They are weak, cheap, and only attack once. Their HP ranges from 50-100%. Their stats range from 10-16, and many of them are mindless robots. Furthermore, they only have 1 attack. A group of 10 of these should be enough to take on a level 20 Quester.
Wolfman: "SIMBER, would you know where Link or Zelda are located?" *He has a triforce of power to return.*
Wolfman: "Can you please tell me where they are?"
SIMBER: "Hmmmm... They are both in Hyrule castle."
Charles Magellean: "..."
SIMBER: "Would you like to talk to one of them?"
Wolfman: "Yes please, if that's possible."
SIMBER: "Message sent."
Metal Man (GM): A small video screen pops up, showing Link.
Charles Magellean has a hammer, nails, 2X4 boards, and a bucket. He's waiting outside the women's bathroom on the same floor as the kitchen.
Wolfman: "Link, it's Wolfman. I have something of interest you may want, but I'd rather see you in person about it. Is there any way I can do so?"
Link: "What's the interesting thing?"
Wolfman: *Attempts to whisper* "The Triforce of Power."
Link: "Oh, that. Well, keep it in the stadium. Lots of things are protected there."
Wolfman: "Huh? Are you sure that's a good idea?"
Link: "It's the safest place to date..."
Wolfman: "Fair enough... I'll find a place to store it."
Link: "Thanks for telling me."
Wolfman: "No problem. Wolfman, out."
Metal Man (GM): Link nods and the image disappears.
Wolfman goes to his office then. He opens the door, and gets promptly tossed the book at him... literally. A catalog of Fembots Monthly was thrown at him.
VG: "Honestly, can't you leave your personal stuff OUTSIDE of your business stuff?"
Wolfman: "Fine, fine, fine... I'll keep it locked with my other stuff whenever I leave here." *He goes to the super-secret corner that VG doesn't know, and stores the Triforce of Power in it. Hopefully, it will actually store and be safe.*
Charles Magellean becomes impatient as he waits outside the women's bathroom that's on the same floor as the kitchen.
Metal Man (GM): The bathroom... it is quiet.
Charles Magellean: "I'm coming in!" *He opens the door with his foot and goes in.*
Metal Man (GM): You go in. It's empty.
Charles Magellean starts using the nails and goes to board up the mirror in the bathroom.
Metal Man (GM): It is boarded up.
Charles Magellean starts using a jackhammer to inscribe a circular square of 5 by 7 ft. *The jackhammer causes quite a commotion and noise.*
Wolfman thinks he is feeling something... vibrating...? *Vibrating voice* "What the heck is that?!?"
Charles Magellean created the gap. He turns off the jackhammer.
VG: *same voice* "I don't know... SIMBER, any idea?"
Charles Magellean creates some smoke with herbs to give it a gym sock/lion smell. He makes various gestures with his hands and legs.
SIMBER: "A person in the girl's restroom, burning things and putting up boards."
Wolfman feels the vibrations stop... he and VG calm down. "Probably Mack is having a bad day..."
Charles Magellean: "Gu Mo Gui Guay Fai Dei Tzao, Gu Mo Gui Guay Fai Dei Tzao, Gu Mo Gui Guay Fai Dei Tzao, ..."
Metal Man (GM): Wolf: You see a camera of Locos doing what you see now.
Charles Magellean: The smell becomes stronger as he continues.
Wolfman: "VG, any chance I can borrow your 2K coins? I think it's time we get you outfitted for when it's time for battle."
VG: "Only if I come with you... I have my own ideas."
Wolfman and VG both head to G&W's store... VG's 2000 coins go to Wolfman's account.
Metal Man (GM): GW is there, as usual.
Wolfman: "Hello there."
GW: "Hello Wolf, what do you have in mind for today?"
Wolfman: "First, I need to get rid of something... then, I will need assistance with the hard stuff." *He puts his Pretty Luck badge on the table.* "For some reason, this badge has NOT been helpful for me. The only time it was helpful, all I did was avoid getting dirty. I wish for you to buy it back."
GW: "Ok, I'll buy it... for half price."
Wolfman: "That's fine." *He makes that deal and gets 1750 back.*
GW: "Now, anything else?"
VG: "One question. Is there a limit as to how many items I can have?"
Wolfman: *G&W: Well, this is a 3 foot Toad talking to you... *
GW: "You can only carry 10 items, including badges, items, and weapons. Oh, I forgot!"
GW: "You may have 10 total of each item. So a total maximum of 100 items are available. To carry at once."
Wolfman: "Well, that will make things easier."
VG: "Here are the lists for myself and Wolfman. Get a total for him first before making the transaction." (time to see if this quirk pays off)
Wolfman: *G&W: You see two lists. He 's List: Subtank... that's it *VG's List: Lucky Day, Double Dip, 2 Megalixers, 5 Energizers, Star Egg, 5 Guardian Acorns, 5 Molecular Pills, 3 Debarrier Cubes, 3 Haste Cubes, 3 Super Plush Bears, and 5 Super Sneakers**
GW: "Remember, VG, you can only carry 10 of each item... and a total of 10 unique items, without incurring penalties to your movement."
VG: "I think we misunderstood each other then... what penalties are you talking about?"
GW: "Your attacks and dodging ability will slow down. You don't have to carry all of them to every mission."
VG: "By... could you estimate how much?"
GW: "Welll for every extra unique item... a little bit." (-1 to all attacks and AC per additional unique item)
Wolfman: "If I were to remove the Haste Cubes from the list, what would my total be?" (can't really give up anything else right now)
Metal Man (GM): 28640 without quirks... Total price: 22912 coins
GW: "That'll be 22912 coins."
Wolfman: "Hmm... guess I can buy more for me then. Toss in for me Mega Smash, and Salvage Badge."
GW: "That's... 2800 and 2720."
Wolfman: "Wait... did I say Mega Smash? I meant Mega Rush."
VG: "Silly Wolfman... you need that chip of yours looked at."
GW: "28432 coins."
Wolfman: "It never works..."
GW: "560 coins... let's see."
Wolfman: "I got it." *He hands G&W 26192 coins.*
GW: "That's 26192 coins. Yes."
Metal Man (GM): GW hands over all the items you asked for.
Wolfman and VG sort through the items, each taking what we wanted.
Metal Man (GM): Aribar: You're at the base, walking near the library. It's nighttime outside. However, you also see something very odd.. ..There's some books in the library that have been moved around and stacked to make some sort of strange mini-building. Like a house of cards.
Aribar: "...What the... ?" *He goes into the library...* "Come on! Is this any way to treat books?"
Metal Man (GM): You walk inside, and hear a book move nearby. A book flies out onto the ground. 'Crime and Punishment' In fact, the tower of books starts... packing itself away.
Aribar: "...Ummm... Hello? Anyone here?"
SIMBER: "I am here. What is the matter?"
Metal Man (GM): A book floats around SIMBER's head.
Aribar: "...Why were the books all stacked like a building? ... And why are the books acting weird?"
SIMBER: "I do not know. Someone or something is playing with them."
Metal Man (GM): Yet some more books float around. A book lands on Aribar's head. And I mean land, not smack. There's several books floating in circles near the ceiling.
Aribar: "...Goodie... Could you scan the area to see if there is anyone else in here?"
SIMBER: "Scanning... scanning... No one is here."
Metal Man (GM): Mario walks in.
Mario: "AHHHH!!! THE-A FLOATING BOOKS-A!"
Metal Man (GM): Mario runs into a wall.
Mario: "A-a-a-a-aaaaribar... why are the books-a still floating-a?"
Aribar: "I wish I knew..."
Mario: "Because-a the same ghost-a haunted the cafeteria-a yesterday-a!"
Mario: "It finally-a disappeared-a with all the mustard-a... Luigi-a couldn't-a see it, either!"
Metal Man (GM): A book lands on Mario's shoulder.
Metal Man (GM): Mario flings the book away.
Mario: "This is-a like-a that mansion-a!"
SIMBER: "Records indicate this ghost appeared after you completed your last mission."
Aribar: "...Hrm... SIMBER, could you turn the lights off for a second? Maybe we'll be able to see it in the dark."
Metal Man (GM): Some books fly through SIMBER's holographic head and land near Mario, who starts running around screaming in the library.
Metal Man (GM): The lights go out ..All you see are floating books. They spell out something. 'You are silly.' Then the words disintegrate and the books all fall to the floor.
Aribar: "...Why do you haunt this place?"
Metal Man (GM): The books form more letters.
Aribar: "Bah... It's probably gone now... Or not..."
Metal Man (GM): 'I am not a ghost.'
Aribar: "What are you?"
Metal Man (GM): Then they move back to where they belong, and the lights go back on.
SIMBER: "The disturbance you were talking about has moved. Live video feed has been noted."
Metal Man (GM): A picture pops up... Showing flying pokeballs pestering Professor Oak.
Oak: "Ow! Stop that! Hey! That button isn't for ghosts!"
Aribar: "...Thanks, SIMBER..." *He runs to Oak's lab... He wants to get to the bottom of this.*
Metal Man (GM): You run in, and see various objects flying around.
Oak: "Thank goodness you got here! Something is controlling... everything!"
Aribar: "Hey! I'm not done talking to you, invisible thing! 'allo, Oak... Yeah, same thing just happened in the Library."
Metal Man (GM): Aribar: A pokeball flies and hits you in the forehead.
Oak: "Be careful! It hits people who say things it doesn't like. Most of them involving death rays and computers."
Metal Man (GM): Oak is hit by a pokeball.
Aribar: "Ow... Okay, mister... I just want to know why you're doing this..." *He talks to... That force controlling the things in the room.*
Metal Man (GM): A variety of pokeballs form up to show 'I'm playing.' Then all the stuff stops moving around and goes back to normal.
Aribar: "Oh? And where did you come from? And--... SIMBER!"
Aribar: "Where is the thing at now?"
SIMBER: "Well... it's currently buying objects at the item shop."
Aribar: "..." *Begins running to the shop area.*
Metal Man (GM): You run in there, and see it taking items and putting all the cash required to buy them on the counter.
GW: "Hello Aribar. Something strange is buying all sorts of stuff!"
Aribar: "Hey! Can you at least tell me your name, Mr. Force?"
Metal Man (GM): Aribar: The coins spell 'No'
GW: "...That's really freaky. This was right after Mewtwo bought some stuff, too..."
Metal Man (GM): Upon saying that, all the items and stuff start flying away and disappearing.
Aribar: "...Siiiiiiimber? Where's Mewtwo?"
SIMBER: "He is currently sleeping in his office. Of course, distortions of this magnitude usually would warrant waking him up."
Metal Man (GM): It's this midi again! moremadness.mid
Aribar: "...I'll get him."
Aribar starts towards Mewtwo's office of |)00|/| +1.
Metal Man (GM): Aribar: You walk to there, and enter it. You see Mewtwo sleeping. A variety of objects are floating around, dancing and stuff. They move far more smoothly than the other objects...
Aribar: "...Mewtwo? Wake up..."
Mewtwo: "...?" *He gets up, looking a bit tired. The objects settle down.* "Yes?"
Aribar: "...I believe we've got a slight annoyance on our hands."
Mewtwo: "...Must be related to the psychic distortions I detect in R&R. Something psychic other than me is here."
Aribar: "...Are you sure it isn't you? I mean... Objects were floating around in here while you were sleeping..."
Mewtwo: "But then there's this..."
Metal Man (GM): Mewtwo presses a few buttons psychically, and a monitor comes up... Showing potato chips and soda floating around the R&R. With the TV changing channels.
Aribar: "...What should we do about it?"
Mewtwo: "Come with me."
Metal Man (GM): Mewtwo starts floating towards R&R.
Metal Man (GM): You reach there. Mewtwo glows.
Mewtwo: "Dispell this!"
Metal Man (GM): The chips and stuff fall to the ground... revealing Lizzy.
Lizzy: "Awww... I was having fun creeping out people!"
Aribar: "...Gah! I didn't know you had psychic powers!"
Lizzy: "Of course not. You're not psychic."
Mewtwo: "I believe this answers your question, Aribar."
Lizzy: "Anyway, I decided I'd tag along with you, ever since you freed me from the Dark World. That whole frisbee gag and signs were all made to make you think I'd fret over something as silly as a frisbee. Now then, if you feel it necessary, you could always battle me."
Aribar: "There's no need for a fight... Just as long as you don't go so crazy with your powers I guess..."
Lizzy: "Of course. Perhaps I should tell you why I'm here. You see... long, long ago, I was just a normal lizard. Then, one day, I somehow fell into a portal to what you call 'The Dark World'."
Lizzy: "Well... Strangely enough, the Dark World made me into a person, the opposite of what happens when a person goes in. Of course, I still didn't have any psychic powers. That was to come when I found the Triforce of Power... sitting on a pedestal. Just touching it shocked me badly. It also created who you call... 'Matek' somehow. Matek banished me to be stuck inside that weird armor trap. Then you freed me, and I followed you. I accidentally got warped to the light world again, where my form stuck."
Aribar: "Wait... Armor trap?" *He tries to remember...*
Metal Man (GM): You'd remember that crazy talking armor the group met. Many different people's souls were trapped inside.
Aribar: "Oh! Now I remember..."
Lizzy: "Anyway, I found this mountain. It was great. Unfortunately... This horrible witch lived there. And this walking bedsheet too."
Digifanatic appears, wondering what's going on...
Lizzy: "The bedsheet tried to kill me. But then I somehow summoned psychic powers and turned Invisible. ...After annoying him quite a bit, he eventually fled. However... I needed some way to get back at him."
Digifanatic: (to Aribar) "So, Lizzy found your rival..."
Lizzy: "The witch yelled about something called 'The Questers'... her descriptions of you matched when I saw you earlier. And so, I decided to wait for the Questers to attack her place, as she said."
Aribar: "...Dah! Stupid me... That's Doopliss... Not Skyhigh... Thanks, Digi."
Lizzy: "I made an elaborate frisbee gag to make it seem I'd never seen you before. And then, you know the rest. I followed you back while invisible."
Digifanatic: "Oh... But yeah, that is what I meant... As in Doop..."
Aribar: "Well... What are you going to do now that you're here? ... Besides cause trouble?"
Lizzy: "Oh, I also amassed a small fortune in charging people for using the paths. Well, I thought I could help you all."
Lizzy: "Well, that Doopliss freak you speak of seems weak against me."
Lizzy: "When I turned invisible and shot orbs of darkness at him... he ran."
Aribar: "So he's weak against psychic attacks?"
Lizzy: "Seems so."
Aribar: "...Thank you... That'll be good knowledge for the future..."
Lizzy: "You're welcome. Now then. Who's this thing you call a Wolf Man?"
Aribar: "Wolfman was, and is to a point, our leader."
Lizzy: "Very interesting..."
Metal Man walks in, and starts watching TV, seemingly oblivious. "Hi Aribar. Hi Strange Walking Lizard."
Aribar: "...That would be Metal Man."
Lizzy: "I see. Quite a strange fellow."
Metal Man: "Oh, sure. But what you see on the outside is hiding a creamy caramel inside."
Metal Man: "Darn it... there aren't any shows about cars exploding on! Only this thing about Zio announcing world domination. That gets old really fast."
Aribar: "...You'll get used to him... Eventually."
Zio: "The Questers will be destroyed by a---" *Channel changes.*
Lizzy: "I hope so..."
Metal Man: "Get used to Zio? He's been doing this for the last 3 years. I say we replace him with something new and exciting. Like King K. Rool."
Lizzy: "Now then, is there anything else you'd like to do? I have lots of time on my hands."
Metal Man starts watching an advertising show.
Aribar: "Do you know anything else about Doopliss?"
TV: "Get your Miracle Slicer, and we'll include... 4 miracle knives... 10 miracle ice picks... and 18 million thumb tacks!"
Aribar: "Just wondering... 'Cause, you know... I just want to destroy him with every fiber of my being."
TV: "Now only for 10 coins! Original value: 182317042198408412361420847102 coins!"
Lizzy: "I see... well, he's afraid of psychic people, for sure. He lives in a house nearby the big tower where the witch is."
Metal Man: "How do they expect me to buy this crud? Those thumb tacks aren't even MIRACLE thumb tacks!"
TV: "We'll throw in your own private island if you buy ten of these!"
Metal Man: "Alright! I'm buying it! Where's the stadium credit card?" *He picks up a telephone and starts dialing...*
TV: "Disclaimer: Private island may vary. 1800 coins for shipping and handling."
Aribar: "...Hey! Who feels like taking a field trip to Doopliss's house?"
TV: "We only accept Kremling Kard... if you use anything else, you suck!"
Lizzy: "I could come."
Metal Man: "Darn... we don't have any Kremling Kards... only Toad Things."
Aribar: "Metal, want to come and help kill that spoony Doopliss?"
Metal Man: "But there's lots of fun stuff on TV!"
Metal Man (GM): *Changes channel.*
TV: "And now, for a rerun of Seinfeld!"
Metal Man: "AHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!" *He throws a lamp at the TV, turning it off "...That was close... a few more seconds and the substandard comedy would have poisoned me. Now then, I'd go to Doopliss's house, but unfortunately my feet are turning to stone." *He shows Aribar his feet, which are slowly turning to stone. "I stepped on a Gorgon when I went out to park my CAC. I must sacrifice three mushrooms to the immortal Zeus to fix my feet."
Metal Man (GM): Toad walks in.
Metal Man: "SACRIFFIICCCCEEEE!"
Metal Man runs after Toad, disappearing.
Lizzy: "...Is he always like that?"
Lizzy: "Oh well. At least we don't have to listen to that while trying to mess up Doopliss's house."
Aribar: "Hrm..." *Looks for Mewtwo.*
Metal Man (GM): Mewtwo is currently fixing the TV, which the lamp hit.
Mewtwo: "I don't have enough money to pay Mack to do this..."
Aribar: "...Mewtwo, is it okay if I gather some of the other Questers for a nice, 'friendly' visit to Doopliss? You know... We chat for a little bit, we kill him, raid his fridge, and go home?"
Aribar: "Yay! Simber! Make an announcement for all Questers to head to the wa--... Err... Lizzy, do you know if Doopliss's home is heavily fortified?"
Lizzy: "Not even light can enter that place. I mean, it's like, floating in the air, surrounded by an orb of magma, which has a force field... Oh yeah. It's surrounded by team Star Wolf, which were hired by the Witch."
Aribar: "... Exactly when were you going to tell me this?"
Lizzy: "When Gibby leaped at it and exploded three times simultaneously from the negative gravity field. Well... I just wanted to scare Doopliss again. After all, his house isn't that tough."
Metal Man (GM): Garrick: While the others have long finished the Nova mission, I can always have you talk to Nova anyway.
Aribar: "Could you warp us into his house so we can, you know, kill that form-stealing spoony ghost instead of just scaring him?"
Garrick Fy`aar has been busy, now that he's encountered Nova. He's been tinkering with the warp room, trying to set up a direct route there through the electrical interference using Nova's shielding technology that it apparently has.
Lizzy: "Well... his house is too protected."
Garrick Fy`aar hopes that he got it right. He steps onto the pad and warps to Nova's ship.
Aribar: "Darn... I guess the little field trip is off then..."
Lizzy: "You might find it interesting that his house is powered by those... things you call Nova."
Metal Man (GM): Garrick: You warp to Nova's main computer area. The lights are on, and things look slightly better.
Garrick Fy`aar: "Nova?"
Nova: "Hello, Garrick. Power has been restored to me. I have 1 of 20 modules online."
Aribar: "So if we get all of those modules captured for our side... Thank you, Lizzy!"
Garrick Fy`aar: "That's good to hear."
Lizzy: "You're welcome."
Nova: "Do you have any questions?"
Garrick Fy`aar walks over and checks out the console for a bit, remaining silent. Then...
Metal Man (GM): The console itself is highly complex.
Garrick Fy`aar: "...why me? Why did you choose me to send that message to?"
Nova: "Biographic scans indicate a close match with my creators."
Garrick Fy`aar: "Your creators were humans?"
Aribar begins skipping around the stadium singing, "Hi-ho! Hi-ho! It's off to kill Doopliss I go! With my trusty blade and Thordain! Hi-ho! Hi-ho!"
Garrick Fy`aar: "...tell me about them."
Nova: "They were from 100 years past your time. The planet was degrading. They built me, an orbiting monstrosity, to keep the planet together."
Garrick Fy`aar: "...yeah... yeah, I heard about that from Aribar... Earth... was destroyed..."
Nova: "Records show that I was eventually replaced. Long after that, I was allowed to drift. Earth was destroyed by who you call Tridus."
Garrick Fy`aar says nothing, but grips the console a little tighter.
Nova: "Metal has informed me that the world continued to degrade, even with a far more complex module named Avon replacing me everywhere... It turned out he had been made by Tridus's race to destroy the world. Tridus managed to upscale him, though, warping the planet into another planet, destroying both instantly."
Garrick Fy`aar: "What was the other planet?"
Nova: "And the other planet... of which we don't know the details of. Meanwhile, I drifted to a land named popstar. I became known for my ability to grant people's wishes. The sun and moon began fighting. Noble Kirby gained the star fountain's power and summoned me... But an evil being named Marx tricked me into trying to conquer popstar for him. Kirby fought and defeated me, then Marx. Fromt here, I drifted away, mostly dead."
Garrick Fy`aar: "...and you came here."
Nova: "...Marx also was with me... his dead body, of course. Yes... long before Nintendus was inhabited..."
Garrick Fy`aar arches an eyebrow at this "Marx... is he still here?"
Nova: "I crashed. Marx's body floated off somewhere... very worrisome, but I don't know what happened to him."
Garrick Fy`aar nods a few times.
Nova: "I became one with the planet, allowing the life which you see now to occur. The three creation goddesses revived me with their magic to create Hyrule. The triforce, my original power source, was intended to keep things good and pure."
Garrick Fy`aar walks over to a nearby wall, sliding down it and sitting, taking all this in.
Nova: "One day, Ganondorf, the king of thieves, broke into the holy chamber where it was held and scattered it, grabbing the power for himself. Luckily, I had developed a reactor which made the triforce not essential to me. This was but the first of many things that damaged me. Monkeys ran in and stashed bananas in me."
Garrick Fy`aar chuckles a bit.
Nova: "Alligators used me to power factories. Smithy built Exor out of one of my modules. Bowser built castles out of stolen plans from me."
Garrick Fy`aar: "...so... a lot of what's happened on Nintendus... you've had some part in it?"
Nova: "Yes... mostly it was others damaging me for their own purposes. It goes on forever, I'm afraid. Anyway. There is a rather interesting thing regarding Earth."
Garrick Fy`aar looks down at the cold metal floor, scowling into it as he thinks. "...what's that?"
Nova: "Four different people from there are here. And yet, all of their thoughts lock together."
Garrick Fy`aar shoots his eyes up to the large computer "Four different people?! Who are they?"
Nova: "The earliest, you, the semi-futuristic, Locos, the Futuristic, Metal, and the Ultra-Futuristic, Aribar."
Garrick Fy`aar: "...what?" *He slowly stands, looking at Nova.*
Nova: "All are from different time periods."
Garrick Fy`aar: "...we're all from Earth? But I thought Locos was from the moon? And Aribar from... what was it... Whaller?"
Nova: "And they all came... in this order. Aribar, Metal, Locos, and you. Whaller is on Mars. Locos was on the second Moon of Earth, yes. But his civilization came from Earth. If the trend continues, the next person from Earth will be from a time before yours."
Garrick Fy`aar runs his hand through his hair and sits back down again "...Nova, this is a ship, isn't it?"
Nova: "The vestiges of one. Most of it is buried underground and scattered. At best, it can all be activated."
Garrick Fy`aar: "I don't want to activate it on the little power you have right now... ...I WOULD like to explore it, however... I also want to learn as much as I can on these consoles... how you work, that sorta thing."
Nova: "That is simple enough."
Garrick Fy`aar stands up "Well, no time like the present. Can you give me a layout of the ship?"
Nova: "This is the main computer, it is essential for operation. All modules are connected by a special frequency which can only be operated using diamond-based radio transmitters. You have activated 1 module. It is my power generator."
Garrick Fy`aar: "Nineteen more to go... I take it you can't get off the ground without another few more modules?"
Nova: "Getting off of the ground is a bit beyond me. I am a large part of the ground. I keep this planet alive."
Garrick Fy`aar nods... "...well, what else is on this ship?"
Nova: "The one you are on is merely a computer core connected to a communication assembly."
Garrick Fy`aar: "Well, I couldn't give you other stuff without a large amount of people..."
Metal Man (GM): Gibby: You also gain 800 EXP
Garrick Fy`aar strolls around the large computer center, thinking...
Nova: "That is fine. My 20 modules have everything I need. The module that is online is the ultimate power generator."
Garrick Fy`aar: "...you said you had a communications assembly?"
Garrick Fy`aar: "Just how powerful is it?"
Nova: "It can reach the extents of the edge of this system."
Garrick Fy`aar: "...hmmm... I'd give my left arm to talk to my superiors back in my time... ...but I guess that's out of the question..." *He walks by the consoles again, looking over them. He tries to think of something that he could do...*
Nova: "Unfortunately, to do that is more of a problem of location rather than distance."
Garrick Fy`aar: "Well, I don't know where Earth is located on a star chart... never did take to space navigation at the academy..."
Nova: "Not only that, but you have to aim for a certain speed to get the right time of Earth."
Garrick Fy`aar turns on his heel, looking about the huge room "...I wonder if Metal would know..."
Nova: "Not sure. It is highly difficult."
Garrick Fy`aar: "Nova, is there some way you could improve my Dex so I can have a link to you? Dip into that vast computer database you have once and a while?"
Nova: "That link already exists."
Garrick Fy`aar nods, then suddenly has an idea... "...Nova, just how many records do you have in there from Earth?"
Garrick Fy`aar: "Anything from my time? The Fifth Division from the Three Powers government?"
Nova: "I will have to search for it."
Garrick Fy`aar: "Do so, please."
Nova: "I will."
Metal Man (GM): Meanwhile...
Wolfman and VG recover from the shaking and the jackhammering... they are in Wolf/VG's office.
VG: "You sure you don't want to check?"
Wolfman: "...alright, fine; I'll check. Take care of the bills while I'm gone." *He leaves his office to go towards the main girl's bathroom... granted, there are many girl's bathrooms, but he knows which one caused the disturbance.*
Charles Magellean starts the rhythmic chanting in the hole he created to ward off the possible person coming from out of the boarded mirror.
Wolfman eventually arrives... to the tune of humming?
Charles Magellean: "Gyu Mo Gui Guai Fai Dei Tzao, Gyu Mo Gui Guai Fai Dei Tzao..."
Wolfman is hearing some chanting now... who would want to chant in the lady's rest room? He goes closer, but not quite in, to check.
Charles Magellean (GM): A couple of Questers in the building would hear something coming from the pipes... and even worse... smelling something.
Digifanatic: "Oh man... who's working in the furnace? Someone with a gas problem?"
Charles Magellean: "Gyun Kai-tun Cay thinner... Zandi ratun..."
VG: "Man... why am I detecting a foul stench? SIMBER, any chance we can get some air circulation here?"
Aribar is in the Library readying when he notices the smell. "Uug! Did Kirby have bean burritoes again?" He puts the book away and, pulling his shirt up over his nose, goes to investigate the smell.
Wolfman is detecting something foul within his smell sensors... "...if I'm lucky, it's probably some stink bomb a rowdy fan used."
Charles Magellean (GM): Upon an assumed INT check, the Digi has found it came from a bathroom, and staggers to make sure he doesn't inhale the smell. He reaches Wolfman just outside the women's bathroom.
Digifanatic: "Uggh... sounds like it's coming from a bathroom..."
Wolfman: "The lady's bathroom to be specific."
Digifanatic heads towards the bathrooms, and sees Wolf. "I see you're thinking the same thing I am... oh man... Who could have caused such a stench?"
Charles Magellean continues the rhythmic chanting.
Wolfman: "I think we have to enter. SIMBER, put up a hologram of me so that no females enter. I don't need them to freak out right now."
Digifanatic: "...And why the heck is Locos doing some odd chant in the bathroom?!"
Charles Magellean: "Ken Pai!" *Wind begins to blow on the door from the inside.*
Wolfman hopes SIMBER will acknowledge the statement...
Digifanatic: "I wish I knew Chinese, too..."
Wolfman: "Digi, let's go in."
Digifanatic: *Sigh* "Alright..."
Wolfman enters the bathroom... hopefully by the time Digi enters, the hologram will keep the normal visitors of this bathroom out.
Charles Magellean (GM): The door is locked.
Wolfman: "...what?" *He does a smashing right hook on the door.*
Digifanatic covers his nose with his hand.
Charles Magellean (GM): The door is sent into the nearest stall after crashing into another door.
Wolfman: "NOW, let's go in."
Wolfman enters the women's bathroom.
Digifanatic follows Wolf in.
Charles Magellean (GM): The smell is gone, and you can see only Locos is there. He has made an empty moat and is standing on the platform in the middle of it. He had his arms reached out and pointing towards the bathroom mirror, which is boarded. "..."
Digifanatic: "Phew... what are you doing?"
Wolfman wonders what the heck is going on.
Charles Magellean looks to Wolf and digi and has panic in his eyes. "What have you two done?? Now I'm not able to keep him from coming here!"
Wolfman: "...keep who?"
Charles Magellean (GM): The boards that were once nailed fall down to the ground. The empty moat is replaced with the normal tiling of the bathroom floor. The inside of the mirror begins to become a purple swirling vortex.
Wolfman points to the vortex.
Digifanatic: "What in the..."
Wolfman: "You mean... that?"
Charles Magellean: "...He's here."
Wolfman: "Well, who is he?"
Charles Magellean: "...My evil twin brother from another dimension... he's found me." The mirror starts to ripple. From the mirror, out comes a weird man. He looks the same as Locos, except wears a blue cape, and has blue hair. He has semi-body armor that fits those of a cyborg.
Wolfman gets a look at this creature... oh boy... *Weakly* "Hello."
??: "At last... I've found you after 15 years, Charles Magellean. I've come to finish what I wasn't able to do after so long."
Charles Magellean speaks.... "...Lumis Dongthar. I thought I banished you to that dark dimension."
Lumis: "A petty prison is no match for a Dark Sorcerer such as myself."
Charles Magellean (GM): Lumis fires a bolt of purple energy at Locos. He is hit by it, thrown back into a toilet, and falls unconscious.
Lumis: "Now to finish the job."
Wolfman: "Now hold on here!"
Charles Magellean (GM): He begins to charge up his signature attack, then looks to Wolf.
Wolfman: "Why would you want to kill your own flesh and blood?"
Lumis: "He came to my dimension. My culture permits me to kill off twins of ourselves to make sure our world is cleansed of altered versions of ourselves. Now I will finish this undertaking and return to my full power."
Wolfman: "For the record, we aren't on your land anymore. You want Locos, you have to get through us first."
Lumis: "He's history! Play with fire and you'll get burned."
Wolfman: *Aribar: SIMBER will let you into the bathroom if you still need to go... because that is where we are fighting.*
Charles Magellean (GM): Aribar: you've come to the girl's bathroom and found the cause of the smell. Locos was attempting to seal off a possible portal, but the incantation was interrupted. He is now unconscious and the twin brother, Lumis Dongthar, who looks like locos, but has a blue cape, blue hair, red eyes, and semi-body armor fit for a cyborg.. ..has come to kill off the altered version of himself. will you stand for this?
Digifanatic: "Ari... you came in at the right time..."
Aribar: "...What's going on?!"
Wolfman: "Welcome to the bathroom of brotherly love."
Lumis: "I have come to kill off Charles Magellean and reclaim my ultimate power."
Wolfman: "You can forget that idea."
Aribar: "...One, Wolf, lay off the Shrooms..."
Lumis: "If the three of you believe you can stop a Dark Sorcerer that is also a Master Mimic... then I welcome your death."
Aribar: "Two, I won't let you harm my friend!"
Charles Magellean (GM): *Darkness battle.*
Aribar: "Sorcerer's an easy thing to kill... And a Mimic is a piece of cake. Prepare yourself for the other world!"
Wolfman chuckles at Aribar's statement.
Aribar starts off by unsheathing Moonlight and casting Jolt on Lumis. A bolt of lightning lances from his blade and strikes the Master Mimic for 15% Electrical damage, and possibly stun. He doesn't want to show off his true powers to Lumis just yet... He just fires a Magic Missile at his foe for 22% damage, ending his turn.
Charles Magellean (GM): Lumis is hit by the lightning. The missile hits him as well.
Lumis: "So far well done, small one. What would you do next? Make dishes appear out of nowhere? I feel... merciful."
Charles Magellean (GM): Lumis skips his turn.
Wolfman gets his beam saber out, and advances towards Lumis. "Ready for a dance?" *He goes Swords Dancing with Lumis.*
Digifanatic: (relatively quietly to Ari) "Why did he just skip his chance?"
