Super Smash Quest - Story - Chapter 133: Mighty Mimics
Date: 5:42:27 PM, February 4th; 9:16:43 PM, February 4th; 9:40:10 AM, February 5th, 2005.
Aribar: "No idea..."
Digifanatic: "He's probably charging or something..."
Charles Magellean (GM): He uses his cape to block the beams second strike, but everything else hits.
Wolfman then follows that up with a hard, smashing sweep kick. (subtracting -2 accuracy)
Charles Magellean (GM): He is smacked. But he doesn't back off.
Wolfman is done... two attacks used.
Digifanatic: "Nice shots..." *He starts his turn wisely by Dexing Lumis.*
Charles Magellean (GM): *Ding.*
Digifanatic: "Let's see if we can figure out why he didn't attack..."
Lumis Dongthar: No available data. *END.*
Digifanatic: "Oh crap... oh well."
Lumis: "What a waste of time."
Digifanatic: "Hey..." *He tries to use Fire Punch on Lumis.*
Charles Magellean (GM): Lumis is singed.
Lumis: "Ready for another shot, small one? I'm waiting for another parlor trick."
Aribar: "Oh, you think I'm all bark and no bite? Think again... " *He points his sword at Lumis and it begins to glow with electricity... A large blast flies and explodes upon contact with Lumis.* "Electric Elemental Blast!"
Charles Magellean (GM): He is really shocked... literally, but not the feeling.
Aribar then switches weapons to the... Magikoopa Wand... "Say bye-bye! Punify!" *He launches a charge of Punify, which halves the enemy's attacking damage for three rounds on a successful INT check (to beat his AC I guess).*
Charles Magellean (GM): it ...hits.
Digifanatic: "Nice cache of spells..."
Wolfman wonders if that hits.
Charles Magellean (GM): Lumis is encased in a field of circling magic.
Lumis: "Amusing, small one."
Digifanatic: "I might have an idea as to why he's not attacking..."
Lumis: "Now I'm sure you circus performers will recognize... this?"
Charles Magellean (GM): Lumis starts conjuring energy...
Wolfman wonders what he's doing.
Charles Magellean (GM): The energy starts to take a brownish shape... with dirt and such. He aims it towards Aribar. "Elemental... Blast!"
Aribar: "!!" *He is blasted... And probably killed.*
Wolfman jumps back a little bit... that name rings a bell.
Charles Magellean (GM): The large ball of brown... energy fires at Aribar... dealing...
Digifanatic: (to Wolf) "Well, that's practically what Ari just fired... just of Earth this time. Same name..."
Charles Magellean (GM): with Punify entered... 105 damage.
Lumis: "My assumption was true. Being a carnival worker that uses lightning, you are weak against Earth."
Charles Magellean (GM): "And I'm sure... you recognize this?"
Lumis Dongthar opens his hand. In it materializes something.
Aribar still survives... "Hmp... Is that the best you've got?"
Lumis Dongthar: *It's... it's a beam saber.* "This attack may actually be of some use..." *He charges at the Jentanian Wizard... his feet do not reach the ground.*
Wolfman jumps back again... what is with this crazed brother of Locos?
Aribar is hit once, but then ducks under the second slash.
Lumis Dongthar reaches back towards the portal.
Wolfman puts his weapon away.
Lumis Dongthar looks to Wolfman. Lumis's beam saber disappears. "I assume you've seen that before?"
Wolfman: "It is. I wonder how your world made it... what time period do you come from?"
Lumis Dongthar: "I told you, I am a Master Mimic. And being a Dark Sorcerer always me to conjure magics so it complements my other skill. Are you ready, reploid?"
Wolfman crouches down... He jumps up, and spreads his arms and legs out. "YES!"
Lumis Dongthar: "What is this? Another cheap attempt?"
Wolfman howls, calling upon the Wolf Crush... hoping this will defeat him. He lands on the ground, his turn done... he gets ready.
Lumis Dongthar is hit by the barrage of it... but still stands strong.
Wolfman: "...alright, you can take the heat."
Lumis Dongthar: "Impressive attack. I commend you for standing longer than the elf. Yet... this is where it ends." *He opens his hand again.*
Wolfman prepares for... probably his own Wolf Crush...
Lumis Dongthar: *In it materializes... the Magikoopa Wand.*
Lizzy: *Walks by and notices the purple madness going on inside... and runs in* "What the heck is going on here?"
Lumis Dongthar: "It will be interesting to see what this does to others."
Wolfman sees Lizzy... what the?
Lumis Dongthar: "Punify!"
Wolfman: "Lizzy, I suggest you get out of the way!"
Lumis Dongthar fires the rod's geometrical shapes at Wolfman.
Lizzy: "...Watch out!"
Lumis Dongthar makes the material vanish. "Now for some more fun."
Wolfman feels... puny. "...like what?" *He REALLY has a bad feeling that Wolf Crush is coming back... stupid intelligence chip for thinking it would work the first time.*
Lizzy: "Don't worry. I'll teach that weirdo my own powers."
Lumis Dongthar conjures some lightning from his hand. It fires at Wolfman for 15 electrical damage.
Wolfman doesn't get stunned... but does get hit. He has to end this quickly... since crushing won't do, he goes for more dancing with the beam saber.
Lumis Dongthar gets a beam saber out quickly as well. In conjunction to using his cap, he blocks all of your attacks.
Wolfman gets blocked and parried for all of them... even though he shouldn't have. "Are you a mimicker, or a mind reader?"
Lumis Dongthar: "You truly must be an inferior model. I said I am a Master Mimic! I memorize any attack pattern thrown at me, and if it is thrown at me again, I am able to counter-block it! ...That includes your trump card."
Wolfman: "Well, I was one of the first Wolf models made..."
Lizzy: "I'll take care of that."
Lumis Dongthar looks up and sees Lizzy.
Lizzy: "You have a big mouth, for someone unable to learn their own attacks."
Wolfman sure must commend Lizzy here... he's brave for entering.
Lumis Dongthar: "My own attacks do not work in the same dimension as that bumbling counterpart of mine. I do not like this interference. Perhaps you want to join the elf in limbo as well?"
Lizzy: "You're the people in limbo. I technically belong in the dark world!"
Lumis Dongthar: "Enough talk. We now fight to decide who belongs in this realm!"
Wolfman: .oO(The Dark World? Why would Lizzy be here in the Light Word then?)
Lizzy: "Now then. Take this, you demon!" *Lizzy glows... psychic energy flows into Lumis, overloading his senses and causing Lumis to lose both a turn and the ability to defend himself until after the turn he loses has been passed.*
Lumis Dongthar: "...ennnnrraahhhh..."
Lizzy: "And if that wasn't enough... get a load of this!" *Lizzy glows, consolidating hatred into darkness energy. The newly created 'Shadow Ball' flies into Lumis and explodes. 37 damage.*
Lumis Dongthar squints several times.
Wolfman is nearly... well, speechless.
Lumis Dongthar: "As if the elf and reploid weren't enough... now I must deal with a psychic reptile! Do you people actually care for Charles that much!?"
Lizzy: "I don't really know the guy, but you make a rather interesting foe."
Lumis Dongthar is forced to pass his turn.
Wolfman goes for that swords dance again, now that he can't actually defend against it.
Wolfman then follows that up with a smashing left hook (again, -2 accuracy)
Lumis Dongthar: "I... I don't believe this... people other than Charles actually able to match my strength. It's... it's not over yet!"
Wolfman: "For the record, we do care about your brother. The least you can do is the same."
Lizzy: "You're right. I need to fire some more orbs of darkness into you."
Lumis Dongthar: *The punify-ing has worn off.*
Lizzy: *He glows again, firing off purple energy, which surrounds Lumis, and then spins him around. He's finally dropped on the floor, taking 5 damage and becoming confused.*
Lumis Dongthar breaks hold of his cursed smallness and regains hold. He is then... hit again.
Lizzy: *Finally, he fires yet another ball of darkness into Lumis for 37 damage.*
Lumis Dongthar: *Although in his confused state, he is able to deflect the orb with his cape.* "..." *He looks to around and around.*
Lizzy: "Darn! How did you dodge that? That should be impossible!"
Wolfman: "He's a mimicker Lizzy. Hit him once, and he adapts to the attack."
Lumis Dongthar: "A MASTER Mimicker! You!"
Wolfman braces himself. "Yes?"
Lumis Dongthar glows then squints at Wolfman. He then sends psychic energy towards the reploid to overload his systems, forcing him to lose his turn and being unable to defend himself.
Wolfman is somehow affected by LSD... and what else?
Lumis Dongthar fires a bolt of electricity at Wolf again, causing 15 further electric damage.
Wolfman is stunned and doped up... this is too freaky.
Lizzy: "So you're gonna use my own attacks against me... well, I don't like that!" *Lizzy glows, and so does Lumis. Lizzy becomes immune to Sensory Overload for the rest of the battle.*
Lumis Dongthar: "Hmm..."
Lizzy: "And now, for something else different!" *He tries to throw Lumis into a bathroom stall/toilet. If he is effected, he will take what the GM defines as the amount of damage you get for smashing into a toilet at 20 MPH.*
Wolfman wants to flush him down the drain.
Lumis Dongthar comes out of the stall... very angry. "Now I am pissed."
Lizzy: "Well, you hit a toilet. Duh."
Lumis Dongthar conjures up another large ball of energy... this time filling with blue. "Like the elf, I'm sure you do not like being hit by a certain element. And since you are a lizard, I hypothesize that you hate coldness! Elemental BLAST." *He fires the elemental blast at Lizzy of blue ice energy for 105 damage.*
Lumis Dongthar: "And to add more injury to my insult..." *He gathers up energy for his Shadow Ball.* "This is payback!"
Lizzy: "Technically, I insulted you. Then you injured me."
Lumis Dongthar fires the ball of black energy at Lizzy. It then gives him great torment for 44 damage.
Metal Man (GM): *NUKE.*
Lumis Dongthar: "And another one... bites the dust." *He turns to Wolfman.*
Garrick Fy`aar slowly walks into the... girls main bathroom... glancing around, amused.
Wolfman: "Garrick, get your butt here and HELP ME OUT!"
Lumis Dongthar: "What..."
Garrick Fy`aar: "...and just who the hell are you?" *He arches his eyebrow at Lumis, folding his arms over his chest.*
Lumis Dongthar: "Just leave me to my business."
Wolfman: "Him. Bad. Kill. NOW."
Garrick Fy`aar: "Calm down, Wolf... What is this business of yours?"
Lumis Dongthar: "Once I put this meddler out of the way, I shall defeat Charles once and for all."
Garrick Fy`aar: "...Charles? You mean Locos?"
Lumis Dongthar: "...You know his middle name..."
Garrick Fy`aar: "Well, duh."
Lumis Dongthar: "I have had enough of these interferences!"
Garrick Fy`aar smirks, drawing out the M150 and slamming it a new clip "...and I'm tired of your mouth. Let's shoot it off, shall we?"
Lumis Dongthar summons a dark magic to make a a shadow copy of Wolfman. *The Wolfman copy crouches down...*
Wolfman: *In bad british accent* "Bloody Hell...?!?!?"
Garrick Fy`aar looks a little surprised by this...
Wolfman: "GET OUT GET OUT GET OUT GET OUT GET OUT!"
Garrick Fy`aar: "Wolf, calm DOWN."
Lumis Dongthar: *It then stretches it's arms and legs out. and lets out a loud howl.*
Wolfman braces for impact... of the Wolf Crush.
Lumis Dongthar: *It then lets out for it's own Wolf Crush.*
Wolfman is too stunned to attack... or move.
Garrick Fy`aar moves to the right, letting his gunman speed take over as he dodges the blow easily.
Lumis Dongthar makes the replica of Wolfman vanish after it lets out a howl.
Wolfman braces for the impact... but doesn't feel a thing.
Lumis Dongthar: "You survived you're own trump card. I commend you again."
Wolfman: "Thank you."
Garrick Fy`aar: "...are you done talking?"
Wolfman: "Now, are you sure we can't settle this peacefully?"
Lumis Dongthar: "Give me Charles, then I will leave in peace."
Garrick Fy`aar: "You really are dense, aren't you?"
Lumis Dongthar: "Perhaps you won't be so cocky when you witness this..."
Wolfman: *15 seconds later*'
Lumis Dongthar: "...But no. I must gather up strength." *He opens his hand and materializes a replica of Wolf's Beam Saber.* "...This is a precaution."
Wolfman decides to just... well, not attack; he braces especially well for whatever comes (defending; +4 AC this turn)
Lumis Dongthar: *New battle order: Garrick, Lumis, Wolfman.*
Garrick Fy`aar draws out his gun, aims, and unloads eight rounds into Lumis.
Lumis Dongthar absorbs the bullets into his cyborgish armor. The lookalike of Locos, minus a blue cap, blue hair, semi-armor fit for a cyborg, and red eyes does not flinch.
Garrick Fy`aar: "...huh. Well, no problem..." *He unloads that empty clip and slams in a new one, his gun humming softly.*
Lumis Dongthar: "How I dread using this... 'white' magic... but I've learned it just in case if armies come in one at a time." *He begins to chant... and glows with white energy.*
Wolfman really hopes he isn't going to use a cure spell or something.
Lumis Dongthar looks back up, and the assumed wounds are gone. He has recovered to 100% health.
Wolfman hangs his head... in defeat. "Garrick... stand down."
Garrick Fy`aar: "Bull."
Wolfman: "Garrick, that's an order."
Lumis Dongthar: "Do as he says!"
Garrick Fy`aar: "Like I said, Bull."
Wolfman: "Do I need to spell it out for you? We can't win!"
Garrick Fy`aar: "Are you going to just let him go after Locos?!"
Wolfman: "If we don't, either we die or get dragged along for the ride."
Lumis Dongthar glows with psychic energy. He then points at Garrick. The energy then flows into Garrick, overflowing his senses, thus causing him to lose a turn and defend.
Wolfman: "We turn Locos in, and you leave us in peace, right?"
Garrick Fy`aar lets out a yell as he crouches back, holding his gun up at where he last saw Lumis.
Lumis Dongthar: "Perhaps being tormented will cause to think otherwise."
Garrick Fy`aar: "Wolf, if you do that, I'll shoot you myself."
Wolfman waits for an answer.
Lumis Dongthar: "If you had trouble with other mimics of this world and dark sorcerer's, then I suggest you do not get in my way."
Metal Man (GM): Mewtwo appears.
Lumis Dongthar: "In the short time I have been here, I've read of peo---..."
Mewtwo: "What the... who are you? You're not allowed in here..."
Wolfman: "Mewtwo, Lumis. Lumis, Mewtwo."
Garrick Fy`aar shakes off whatever stun he's in, his eyes focusing again. He growls and brings his gun to bear on Lumis once more.
Lumis Dongthar looks to the cat with looking eyes. "..." *He looks to Wolfman.*
Mewtwo: "...Why is there a huge collection of non-girls in... of all places... the girl's room?"
Lumis Dongthar: "Consider yourselves fortunate this time."
Wolfman: "Mewtwo, this is not the time to worry about that. ...what do you mean, fortunate?"
Mewtwo: "Of course. Now then, whoever you may be... leave this place and never return."
Garrick Fy`aar: "He wants Locos, Mewtwo..."
Lumis Dongthar: "...I will... but know this. I will return to where I came from, but each time I come back to a new plain, my powers become stronger!"
Wolfman: "I also have a message for you. For a strange brother, you aren't that bad. Should we be on the same side, I hope we can learn from each other."
Lumis Dongthar: "Even if it means I lose the abilities I gained... it just means I will come back that much stronger! I do hope so to, reploid."
Wolfman can accept some strange culture differences.
Lumis Dongthar: "Haaa... HAA HAH HAHA HAA..."
Mewtwo: "...I'll make a note to up security in this room. It's no wonder you stayed unnoticed... for privacy reasons, there are no cameras in here..."
Wolfman: "Well, it is for privacy reasons."
Lumis Dongthar goes to maniacal laughter as he disappears into the mirror portal. The laughing dies out as it echoes.
Wolfman: "Then again... can't you also log onto SIMBER and detect things?"
Garrick Fy`aar sighs and slowly lowers his gun, slipping it into his side holster.
Mewtwo: "SIMBER was as clueless as I was."
Charles Magellean regains consciousness.
Garrick Fy`aar: "...I can't believe you, Wolf."
Wolfman: "...perhaps he didn't block the bathroom like I asked him to."
Garrick Fy`aar slowly turns to look at the reploid.
Wolfman: "Garrick, I didn't like what I would have had to do either."
Garrick Fy`aar: "Then you shouldn't have done it!"
Charles Magellean gets up.
Wolfman: "There wouldn't have been much of a choice if Mewtwo didn't show up. Sometimes, sacrifices must be made."
Garrick Fy`aar: "If he wants somebody, then you fight to the end! The very end!"
Wolfman: "It would have been better for Locos to be caught, then for us to recharge and go after him."
Charles Magellean: "Garrick... I hate to say it... but Wolf's right... except for being caught."
Garrick Fy`aar: "He didn't want to catch him! He wanted to KILL him!"
Lizzy: "Gah... stupid cheater..."
Charles Magellean comes out of the stall that he was knocked out in.
Wolfman: "...alright, so I goofed one detail."
Garrick Fy`aar walks up to Wolf, getting right in his face "We learned something in boot camp. Never, EVER leave a man behind. Never give someone up."
Charles Magellean: "Garrick... everyone..."
Wolfman would say more... but Locos is calling our attention.
Charles Magellean: "I thank you for your interference. It bought me enough time to awaken."
Wolfman: "...I don't understand."
Charles Magellean: "Tell me... how went his mimicking skills?"
Wolfman: "He was able to stop repeating attacks from hitting... and he could return them with full force. It was only a miracle Garrick and I survived my own Wolf Crush."
Garrick Fy`aar: "It was slow..."
Charles Magellean: "That bad eh?" How many did he bring down?"
Wolfman: "Aribar, Digi, and Lizzy."
Charles Magellean: "..."
Metal Man walks in.
Charles Magellean gives the widest of expression in his eye. Filled with fear.
Metal Man: "Wow. That episode of Star Wars rocked. ...It looks like Star Wars happened in here."
Wolfman: "Mainly through the use of Elemental Blasts."
Garrick Fy`aar: "...if anyone needs me, I'll be in Nova's base." *He turns and walks out, heading for the warp room.*
Charles Magellean: "Wait... I need to know things. Garrick, I need you here for a couple minutes!" *yelled that.*
Garrick Fy`aar is already gone, ignoring him.
Wolfman: "I'll answer your questions..."
Charles Magellean: "...His own ignorance will cause his downfall."
Wolfman: "What do you need to know?"
Charles Magellean: "He's strong, but to gain that much power on a first trip here..."
Wolfman: "...is that normal?"
Charles Magellean: "He becomes stronger to each failed attempt on a dimension and revisits it."
Wolfman: "...I wouldn't have called his visit here failing. If anything, I think he showed us mercy."
Charles Magellean: "That dimension knows nothing of mercy. If you hadn't opened the door, I might've been able to seal off his one chance to come here. But even I doubt I might've made a difference."
Wolfman: "If I didn't open the door, the females would have complained that their main bathroom was barricaded."
Charles Magellean: "Doesn't matter; he came."
Wolfman: "So what can be done now?"
Charles Magellean: "Now that he know's I'm here, he'll come back... stronger mentally and physically. All we can do... is defeat the lower forms of mimics and dark sorcerers so we can prepare ourselves for his next coming. People like Doopliss and Zio."
Wolfman: "...I think I'd rather stick to being a permanent secretary."
Charles Magellean: "Then I suggest you do not get in his way again."
Wolfman: "What else am I supposed to do if he comes for you though?"
Charles Magellean: "The question is..." *He begins to leave the bathroom.* "What will happen when he comes again. and what to do when he does." *He leaves.*
Wolfman picks up the fallen guys and brings them to their rooms .oO(I have no clue how I survived this time around... at least these guys didn't have to face the other end of the Wolf Crush.) *He heads to R&R afterwards to try to chill.*
Charles Magellean gets into his Rocket Chair Mach 2. At the cost of all weapons, it goes faster than before, has better shielding and shield frequencies, and two metal hands. "Okay, first agenda..." *He takes out his checklist. "Grunty." *He rockets off to the main mountain.
Metal Man (GM): You reach that place quickly. It's heavily defended... that is, the huge tower.
Charles Magellean arrives at the base of the doorway. He jumps from the chair and deactivates the chair and puts it in his pocket. He walks towards the main entrance.
Metal Man (GM): The main entrance is heavily guarded as well. A door made of titanium... Guarded by two Utility Grunts in mechas. Behind a force field.
Charles Magellean approaches the force field with no weapons in hand.
Metal Man (GM): The imps aim at you.
Grunt1: "Hello. What is your business?"
Grunt2: "No appointment has been scheduled."
Charles Magellean: "Now I know I made the 9 o'clock appointment with Madame Gruntilda about the contract breach." *He checks his wallet...* "...Kitchen sink... ...Business cards... ...Violin..."
Grunt1: "Oh, so you are LSD?"
Grunt2: "LSD... what an amusing name."
Charles Magellean: "*Ahem*..." *He checks his other portion, where he keeps his cards. Sure enough, he pulls out the holographic secretary that would confirm any and all appointments that Charles has made.* "Secretary: At January 27, at 16:34, Madame Gruntilda of Grunty Industires and Charles L. Magellean appointed a meeting at Grunty Industries on February 5 at 21:34."
Grunt2: "We'll let you in, but don't break anything!"
Charles Magellean bows.
Metal Man (GM): The force field opens, as does the door. A vacuum sucks Locos and his chair and stuff inside. The door shuts behind him, quickly. Another grunt, in a floating machine, is there, waiting for you.
Grunt3: "Come with me, please. Do not touch anything that looks dangerous."
Charles Magellean nods in acknowledgement. "...Lead the way."
Metal Man (GM): Grunt 3 leads you through the hallways, up several stairs... ..And to a newly repaired throne room. Grunty, who's currently filing her nails, stops to look at you.
Grunty: "Hello, Charles. What exactly do you want?"
Charles Magellean observes the surroundings, then glares to Madame Grunty. "I would be here on Quester business, but I am not. I am here to discuss the contract breach that happened at Spiral Mountain several days ago, caused by former ally Avon."
Grunty: "...Well, you see, swell things have gone out to sea. Avon has gone, the alliance defeated by defiance. He has taken over many great powers... I cannot stop him, he threatens planet destruction, a shocking shot."
Charles Magellean: "Correction, he was a threat. He is no longer functioning."
Grunty: "Doopliss has more details, you shall see how much he wails..."
Doopliss: *Poofs in* "I wish he was dead. But... he replicated. Then he took over the areas where those modules were."
Charles Magellean look to Doopliss with disgust.
Doopliss: "He has also repeatedly threatened planetary destruction if we do not destroy... you."
Charles Magellean: "Of course us Questers are a threat to those who threat the world."
Doopliss: "Also... alarming things are happening. The planetary gravity is... decreasing. Days and nights are getting longer. The warp pipes, ? blocks, and various items of power are ceasing to function."
Charles Magellean: "This is what happens when you shut down Nova's power."
Doopliss: "And studies indicate an incoming meteorite shower..."
Charles Magellean: "...You're overreacting."
Doopliss: "We have it all here." *Pulls up a screen.*
Metal Man (GM): All sorts of red stuff is on it. It shows the gravity changing from 1.0 to... 0.95... Days are now 24 hours and 15 minutes long... The overall effectiveness of things such as warp pipes have also become 0.95.
Charles Magellean: "Like I said, you people wanted to shut down Nova's power, so now it's coming back to bite you in the butt."
Doopliss: "We didn't shut it down. We used to siphon it off to power our own stuff. Now Avon, something we never loaded onto it, is taking over. Our facilities are safe, but the planet isn't. Our plan to fix this, however, is off limits to you. If you want, you could help prolong the life of the planet by going to Avon yourself."
Charles Magellean: "Never."
Doopliss: "However, we haven't found another module yet, so it's a moot point now."
Charles Magellean: "Then stay out of my way."
Doopliss: "Our policies will fail if we don't have the right to do what we please. As it is, Aribar is a threat to life as we know it. His people destroyed a place called 'Earth'."
Charles Magellean: "Okay I've heard enough. Have a nice day, and I hope--...uhh..."
Grunty: "You heard him. Herd the has-been away!"
Metal Man (GM): Two grunts start pushing Locos back the way he came.
Charles Magellean: "I hope you people won't be overrun by a hostile takeover!"
Doopliss: "No problem with that." *Chuckles.*
Charles Magellean: "And break all big mirrors in case someone better at mimicking than Doopliss appears!"
Doopliss: "...Wait. Stop!" *Runs after Locos, as the Grunts stop pushing him away* "Who DARES claim to be better than me? I'd risk summoning the Shadow Queen herself to defeat such a phoney."
Charles Magellean: "...I said nothing."
Doopliss: "Mirrors. Mimicking guy. That's something to me. Let's see what happens if I look at a big mirror. Grunts! Bring in the mirror!"
Metal Man (GM): The two grunts run off to get what sounds like a huge mirror on wheels.
Charles Magellean: "...He's not coming on a whim. He only comes when he pleases."
Doopliss: "Now then. You said something about mirrors... How does he come from big mirrors?"
Metal Man (GM): A large mirror on wheels comes in. Doopliss starts poking it.
Doopliss: "Helloooooo? Any big-time copycats in here?"
Charles Magellean: "Well first, there has to be purple portal forming from the inside of it. Then the mirror itself starts to ripple."
Doopliss: "Okay." *Pulls out a crayon and starts drawing a purple thing on the mirror* "Now all I need is a mirror that can ripple."
Charles Magellean: "Finally, a person that looks exactly like me but has a blue cape, blue hair, a semi-body armor that is fit for a cyborg and red eyes comes out of it."
Doopliss: "Well, this mirror person sounds interesting. Guards! Put prison cubes in front of all large mirrors! We want to capture this weirdo and use him for military purposes..."
Metal Man (GM): *You'd hear guards running around like crazy, some of them taking off with the mirror on wheels.*
Charles Magellean: "He only comes after me and disposes of those that get in his way. He's my evil twin brother from another dimension aka Lumis Dongthar."
Doopliss: "Is there any way into this other dimension you claim exists?"
Charles Magellean: "...Clap your toes? Now if you'll excuse me... I need to go to Zio." *He gets on his chair and rolls outta there.*
Doopliss: "Alright. We'll call you if we catch this weirdo!"
Metal Man (GM): You get out. You're outside again... The tower sounds much like a jingling glass carnival after you've left it.
Charles Magellean: "That's one weirdo place to make sure he doesn't come out of." *8 minutes later...*
Metal Man (GM): You arrive at Zio's castle. It's surrounded by several rings of dark smoke. You see the workings of a factory from the outside. The drawbridge is up. The place is surrounded by a moat of lava.
Charles Magellean hoists up the chair so he can try to enter from... the sky.
Metal Man (GM): You fly... you fly... ...and you notice the halls are FULL of guards.
Charles Magellean: "I should've ordered stealth mode but nnnnoooooo..."
Metal Man (GM): Furthermore, there are some ships nearby, patrolling the skies.
Charles Magellean enters from a skylight.
Metal Man (GM): You get in... you're on the third-highest floor. The entire area is CRAWLING with guards. It's a rectangle room... One door is forward, the other is backward.
Charles Magellean turns off the engine on his chair and goes walking on foot.
Metal Man (GM): Which door do you go in?
Charles Magellean tries his best to be sneaky sneaky towards the the door that is forward, but does not have the shady quirk.
Metal Man (GM): You open the door, and notice a room patrolled by sligs, slogs, and Space Pirates. They speak some strange tongue. You couldn't get any further without being eaten, shot, or fried simultaneously ..You also hear some guards entering the corridor you just left.
Charles Magellean enters the room.
Space Pirate: "Gwihdoqwuqu. Wifhw iwhdow uiwgfrwWWd."
Space Pirate: "Gwiowhofnw."
Space Pirate: "Wfiehewfoefw!!!"
Charles Magellean: "I have no quarrel with you. And it is not your concern. I am here to speak to your Lord and no more."
Metal Man (GM): They speak an unknown tongue and make various gestures at Locos. They all point their guns at Locos.
Slig: "Gwwiwqhqowqw! Qqfrihfqei werih eqwoiheiewofew!"
Metal Man (GM): ...They don't look happy. They look armed to the teeth, though. Heck, you don't remember Sligs that were equipped with missile launchers...
Charles Magellean: "I'm not surrendering."
Dex: "Urgent translation required, sir Charles. If you don't, l doubt you'll live much longer."
Charles Magellean: "Proceed."
Dex: "Tranlastion engine online."
Space Pirate: "It's an intruder. Prepare to destroy them."
Slig: (To other sligs) "Kill em!"
Space Pirate: "Alert Zio to this intruder."
Charles Magellean: "Guards, I have planned to meet with Zio. If I am late and he knows you are responsible for my late arrival... well... let's say that future of yours won't be so comfortable."
Slig: "You liar! Liar!"
Space Pirate: "Zio told us to destroy you on sight."
Charles Magellean: "Enlightening Lunarians do not li---."
Space Pirate: "You've also exposed a massive security flaw in this place. For that, you may leave in one piece."
Slig: "You cheat, you die!"
Charles Magellean: "I said I planned to meet with him. I did not say I made an appointment."
Space Pirate: "He does not accept intruders (said with disdain) for visits. And while I am the highest lifeform here, the others might open fire on you even as I am talking."
Charles Magellean: "Yes, I am intruding. But that doesn't mean I cannot be made a guest. It is about Avon and another... Dark Sorcerer."
Space Pirate: "I do not have the authority to let you in. Avon is classified material! His inner workings are only known to... ...not telling."
Charles Magellean: "I understand. Then... I will leave." *He gets into his chair.*
Space Pirate: "Escape while you still can..."
Slig: "Hey, you're letting him get away!"
Charles Magellean: "...Who said anything that I was escaping?" *He smiles.*
Space Pirate: "...Open fire!"
Charles Magellean activates the bubble and his more powered shielding.
Metal Man (GM): The small army of 1 space pirate, 3 Sligs, and 2 slogs attack at full power. 3 SAM missiles, a barrage of lasers, and a lot of biting hit the shield. The alarms go off.
Space Pirate: "Backup! Backup!"
Metal Man (GM): The shielding is taking a whole lot of damage. You hear a door behind you explode.
Charles Magellean: "Activating shield reflectors."
Metal Man (GM): ...It's just gotten uglier in here.
Elite Space Pirate: "KIIIIIIILLLLL!!!!!"
Charles Magellean: "...Good bye!"
Metal Man (GM): The others run from the hulking, mutated Space Pirate as it moves to smash you through the ground. Several doors lock shut behind them.
Charles Magellean charges right into the Elite Pirate to make his getaway through the exploded door.
Metal Man (GM): You bump off of the Elite Pirate... he took up the entire doorway. The Elite Pirate tries to punch you.
Charles Magellean is sent spinning out of control.
Metal Man (GM): *SMASH* The other door explodes. It's none other than a HUUUUGE Slogzilla. You hear a far off unholy laughing... must be Zio's.
Charles Magellean: "I must... deliver the message."
Metal Man (GM): Zio appears, in front of the Elite Space Pirate.
Zio: "Should it be written on your tombstone?"
Charles Magellean deactivates his shielding.
Zio: "I don't regard trespassers as guests. But I might as well take your message before killing you."
Charles Magellean: "Destroy all your large mirrors. That... is my message and request."
Zio: "Destroy... large mirrors... ...you are truly out of your mind. What lives in these mirrors? The Boogeyman? I have over 100 boogeymen. Do you?"
Charles Magellean: "I am not joking, Motavian Wizard."
Zio: "Motavia... perhaps that's where they will find your mind... Why would I want to smash mirrors again? For bad luck?"
Charles Magellean: "They become possible portals for the Dark Sorcerer and evil twin brother from another dimension Lumis Dongthar."
Zio: "Well, isn't that funny. It's just a shame that I am the most powerful dark sorcerer in the realm!"
Charles Magellean: "Maybe for now. On his first visit alone, he was able to take down 3-4 Questers and an ally."
Zio: "I could crush you into a golf ball if I wanted."
Charles Magellean: "It would be more of a fitting fate then what my brother would have in store."
Zio: "Questers. Pft. I can take down twice that many! They're just pathetic idiots equipped with weak weapons and some watered-down spells. What could ever defeat my stunning combination of Slogzilla and Elite Space Pirate attack?"
Charles Magellean: "...Probably him on his fifth visit."
Zio: "Oh. I almost forgot. If you really wanted to live, you should have tried the communications devices in here rather than putting yourself in a position to be smashed."
Metal Man (GM): *SMASH* The Space Pirate breaks a hole in the floor right besides where Locos is.
Charles Magellean gets a pretty chill.
Zio: "Wouldn't it be a pity if I accidentally let them loose right now?"
Charles Magellean: "No. You aren't listed, that's why I had to come in person."
Zio: "Hmph. Now then. GET OUT OF MY FORTRESS."
Metal Man (GM): Those words have a powerful effect on you. INT check. You can use lucky. You barely resist the low-level persuasion attempt.
Zio: "Well, you seem to have a brain. Unfortunately, it will most likely get you killed."
Charles Magellean: "I will leave on my own accord. But let this be a warning. Get in his way, and he will kill those that come in between him and me."
Zio: "Oh... I am sooo afraid of the mirror man. He's just going to eat me alive, after defeating defenses made to keep the Questers, of all people, out. Now. Get out."
Metal Man (GM): Zio blasts a hole in the wall.
Zio: "It would be a waste of money to kill you at the moment."
Charles Magellean: "...Honestly, how much does it cost to repair your own damage?"
Zio: "Very little."
Charles Magellean jumps out of the hole. "Jack***."
Zio: "I wouldn't say that if I were you. You remind me of what you say."
Charles Magellean lands... somewhere.
Metal Man (GM): After escaping, you see the hole in the fortress seal up on its own.
Charles Magellean yells upward and shakes his fist. "At least I can get away with making fun of Miss Brangwin!" *He dusts himself off. He can't believe what a waste of time that was.*
Metal Man (GM): Zio, meanwhile, probably can't believe what a waste of time that was, either. Locos: you see an incoming batch of ships. They're aiming at you. Lasers fly at you, burning multiple holes in the ground.
Charles Magellean: "Ahh of course... I'm still on his property." *He looks for a dirt path, or least amount of brush nearby. int check.*
Metal Man (GM): You discover a dirt path that leads into one of Nintopia's towns.
Charles Magellean begins to pick up speed, and goes to run as fast as a person can in SMB3.
Metal Man (GM): You manage to escape, as they weren't really interested in chasing you. You enter an adjacent green area, which is devoid of all flowers. Only green brush grows here ..One of those bushes is shaking.
Charles Magellean scrrrreeechhes.
Metal Man (GM): A bob-omb pops out.
Charles Magellean: "!"
Metal Man (GM): It starts walking towards you, fuse lit ..*Pop* There's another one... doing the same thing...
Charles Magellean: "Why am I worried? I'll just ...match... it's speed?"
Metal Man (GM): *pop* Now there's three of them. The first one is about to explode on you. 3. 2.
Charles Magellean goes to pick it up and throw it at another bob-omb.
Metal Man (GM): 1. You pick it up... roll a STR check ..It explodes in your face for 15% damage.
Charles Magellean coughs with black smog going out.
Metal Man (GM): The second one is about to explode at you. Look! another one popped outta the bush! This bush is crazy. It's inhabited by... infinite bob-ombs?
Charles Magellean: "...Vase."
Metal Man (GM): 3. 2. 1.
Charles Magellean runs off.
Metal Man (GM): A bob-omb hits you while you run... but you escape the slow-moving bob-ombs. 15% more damage. The bombs that popped out earlier move around randomly and explode.
Charles Magellean goes back so he can try to pick up another one that approaches him.
Metal Man (GM): *pop* It walks right towards you.
Charles Magellean: "Okay, round 2, ya pests."
Metal Man (GM): You can easily pick it up and throw it.
Charles Magellean picks this one up ahead of time. "Come on... start flashin'."
Metal Man (GM): It's now flashing.
Charles Magellean throws it at the bush.
Metal Man (GM): *BOM* The bush explodes... revealing a vase... but then the ground rumbles.
Charles Magellean: "Good ol' subcon knowledge."
Metal Man (GM): ...*SMASH* That 'vase' was a pipe attached to a machine that emerged from the ground. It has twin Bullet bill launchers, and is manned by a Hamme Brother.
Hammer Brother: "Heh heh heh. Say hello to Bowser's newest invention! The Overkill 3000!"
Charles Magellean: "I see..."
Hammer Brother: "Meant to keep those evil villains out of our perfectly green land. You look like a good target."
Metal Man (GM): It aims... and fires two bullet bills.
Charles Magellean: "I'm ...Charles."
Metal Man (GM): 10% per hit.
Hammer Brother: "Heh heh. Burn!"
Charles Magellean gets hit by the first one so he can jump on the second one to avoid it's blast.
Hammer Brother: "I've been soooo bored. But now a little target is here!"
Metal Man (GM): The Hammer Brother's machine starts walking towards you. A Bob-omb leaps outta the vase, and into the Hammer Brother's hands. He chucks it at you. It deals 15% damage if it hits. Otherwise, it makes a crater.
Charles Magellean: *It made a crater.*
Hammer Brother: "Heh heh heh! I'll stomp you!"
Metal Man (GM): Last turn for the machine. Oh, ok. The enemy uses its last turn to run at you! ...It runs into a tree, crushing it.
Charles Magellean: "Oi, you really want to play, huh?"
Hammer Brother: "You'll be smashed, little play thing!"
Charles Magellean: "Huh... hum!" *He tries his thief quirk.*
Metal Man (GM): You just BARELY miss. What's your level? You may make 1 more action, whether it be attack or otherwise.
Charles Magellean gazes into the Hammer Brother's eyes. His eyes become a hypnotic @_@ swirls (mine do). Command quirk attempt.
Metal Man (GM): ...Once again, you just BARELY miss. You command... a bush! That does nothing.
Hammer Brother: "Hey! Stop looking at that bush!"
Charles Magellean snaps out of it.
Metal Man (GM): The Hammer Brother fires not once, not twice, but THREE sets of Bullet bills at you. 10% fire damage per hit.
Charles Magellean trips over the first one, gets hit by the second one, becomes ricocheted by the third, accidentally kicks the fourth, spins to avoid the fifth, then is finally knocked by the sixth.
Hammer Brother: "Heh heh. Bowser was right when he built this. He's a genius! I'll just have to kill 2999 more of you to prove him right, though..."
Charles Magellean: @_@
Metal Man (GM): You can also flee, too. The machine appears to be having black smoke coming outta the vase.
Charles Magellean: "Hmm... Okay think... ..." *He notices the black smoke. An idea has struck him!*
Metal Man (GM): You think of throwing an object into the vase.
Charles Magellean runs to the Overkill and attempt to climb on it.
Metal Man (GM): You leap aboard.
Charles Magellean: "Hello."
Hammer Brother: "Hey! Get off!"
Charles Magellean attempts to grab the Hammer Brother.
Metal Man (GM): You grab dat hammer brother.
Charles Magellean: "Let's see how you like rides."
Hammer Brother: "If you toss me, this machine will go toaster on you!"
Charles Magellean: "Let's see what happens then, shall we?"
Metal Man (GM): Roll again to try to throw him... opposed STR checks. You toss him off of the machine. Oh. Into the vase! He flies into the vase, head-first.
Charles Magellean looks over to the vase. He then hoists up the brother to the air. He then throws him in an arc so he goes head first into the vase.
Metal Man (GM): The gauges on the machine start going mad. You hear various alarms.
Charles Magellean: "...That's my cue." *He gets a running start, then flies from the air and to the ground.*
Metal Man (GM): You hear a loud explosion. *KABOOOOOOOOM* The thing and the hammer brother are obliterated. Locos has gained: 200 EXP.
Dex: "Message from Mewtwo."
Charles Magellean: "Send."
Mewtwo: "Hello, Locos. I trust you will need a warp back home about now? If you do, press the blue button on the dex with 'Warp' under it."
Charles Magellean: "Easy way for me. I've had enough fun for one day." *He presses the blue button on his dex. *
Metal Man (GM): *WARP* You're back at base, and healed.
Charles Magellean: "Now to get to work on that second concoction for now I have *TA-DA* My family's cookbook!" *He rushes off.
Metal Man (GM): Sure. Go ahead.
Lumis Dongthar: Terminator_-_Beats_Of_The_Windmill(Legend_of_Zelda_Ocarina_of_Time).mp3 He comes from a portal. He has arrived from his own dimension in search for Charles Magellean... in Grunty Industries main tower this time.
Metal Man (GM): Lumis would notice an open box sitting by the mirror, on a pedestal. It starts trying to vacuum him in.
Lumis Dongthar: "...It seems already my presence has been made aware. Does he really think I can be stopped that easily?"
Metal Man (GM): Several alarms go off, cameras everywhere. The doors lock. The lights go red ...Then Doopliss appears.
Lumis Dongthar points his finger at the box and fires his purple energy.
Metal Man (GM): ...Just in time to see the box get hit.
Lumis Dongthar: *It explodes.*
Doopliss: "Hello, Mr. Scary mirror man. I challenge you to a duel!"
Lumis Dongthar: "Charles... I sense he came here."
Doopliss: "Yeah. He said you were the best mimicker ever!"
Lumis Dongthar looks to Doopliss. "Bed-sheet, my fight is not with you. Where is Magellean?"
Doopliss: "With the Questers, of course!"
Lumis Dongthar: "...Que... sters."
Doopliss: "He came here telling us you'd utterly defeat everything you met. But if you want to destroy the Questers, then knock yourself out. You need a map to their HQ?"
Lumis Dongthar: "Ahh... my first encounter with him. Yes, I was able to take out 3-4 of them rather easily. Do not insult my intelligence. I have a sixth sense about Charles, so I can easily track him down."
Doopliss: "...Of course I wouldn't want to insult a mysterious mirror ma---"
Metal Man (GM): One of the doors fly open. It's Grunty, with her wand.
Lumis Dongthar: "I am not a mirror man."
Grunty: "Hello there, bother bearer."
Lumis Dongthar: "I am Dark Sorcerer and Master Mimic Lumis Dongthar. I will hunt him down and defeat his ...Que-ster allies."
Grunty: "We seem to have two dark sorcerors. One a bit off his bean, another surely using mirrors as doors..."
Lumis Dongthar: "Sorceress, I'd advise staying out of my way. That goes for this party-person as well."
Grunty: "...As long as you break no more, it shall be as you were never here, the sheer fear of damage catastrophically near. Do you want the door, it's on this floor?"
Lumis Dongthar: "Not yet." *He looks to Doopliss.*
Doopliss: "We'd gladly help you destroy the Questers."
Lumis Dongthar: "I need no help. I only desire Charles. Any who get in my way are my adversaries as well."
Doopliss: "Okay, then we'll help by staying out of your way?"
Lumis Dongthar: "You, bowtie. You challenged me to a duel."
Doopliss: "Yes, I did."
Lumis Dongthar: "...I would be glad to accept your challenge."
Doopliss: "As would I. Shall we battle here?"
Lumis Dongthar: JonathonStriker_-_Distortions_From_Dark_Matter(Chrono_Trigger).mp3 "Come, allow me to make you regret your own challenge!" *DARK BATTLE He vs. Doopliss.*
Doopliss: "Prepare for the fight of your lifetime!" *He morphs a bit, turning into a far tougher looking... ghost-warrior.*
Lumis Dongthar: "I assume you are a mimicker."
Doopliss: "Up until now, the master of them all!"
Lumis Dongthar: "Yet your skills leave far to be desired."
Doopliss: "I've created this form with energy from Bowser, Orlando Florida, and some other people I forgot about. Oh yeah. Aribar!"
Lumis Dongthar: "...I've heard that name."
Doopliss: "He is my worst adversary."
Lumis Dongthar: "Attack now, or forever silence yourself!"
Doopliss: *He glows, the power of the galaxy in his hands. He then points at target, and a hail of bright stars crashes down.*
Metal Man (GM): 30% light damage per hit. Faild. 40% Earth damage, all barriers disabled if there are any. He barely evades tons o' status effects. over. Wah. back
Lumis Dongthar gets out his brush, and combs back his blue hair a bit. His armor trickles with earth and lightning, but he is not effected much. "Not bad. But I'm sure you recognize... this?" *He points to Doopliss, with his eyes squint. "OMEGA BOLT." *He charges the electricity instantly and the big bolt of energy flies at Doopliss, shocking him for 50% electrical damage.
Doopliss: "That's an excellent copy... of a copy!"
Lumis Dongthar: "And this." *He makes several gestures with his hands, then points at Doopliss. *It makes a dark portal from under him appear... Lumis's own realm.* "How do you like the taste of your own Doom?"
Metal Man (GM): *Unless it's insta-hit, Doopliss is able to resist AND seal it with his mind.*
Doopliss: "Rather wimpy."
Lumis Dongthar: "Testing your powers, so I can prepare my own."
Metal Man (GM): It is always DC 15, as it is a set spell.
Doopliss: "Now then... to give you a taste of yet more power. And... uhhh... why not start a countdown!"
Metal Man (GM): *A timer appears above Lumis's head.*
Doopliss: "Basically, you're doomed, unless you morph into the incredible hulk. When that happens, I'll copy you anyway."
Lumis Dongthar: "Morphing... a skill of those that are inferior mimics. I see there's nothing I can do." *He sighs... with a bluff. He passes his turn.*
Doopliss: "And now... to see what I can get outta you! ...Well... about all I gained is more power... oh well. Eat lightning bolt, pathetic slime!"
Lumis Dongthar: "You are an imbecile. You only limited your arsenal of attacks." *He covers all of his body except the top part of his head with his cape so the lightning is blocked.* "You are an even easier target than those fools that tried to protect Charles."
Doopliss: "Wiseguy, eh? Take this! Laser beam!"
Lumis Dongthar carries no weapons, for he requires none. He does not use items since he IS... THAT... POWERFUL. "Well what do you know... that tickled."
Doopliss: "...Well then, I guess I'm just gonna have to use... this." *Pulls out a power sword and chucks it at Lumis's head.*
Metal Man (GM): 40% damage if that hits. The sword also combusts upon contact.
Lumis Dongthar stops it with his mind. It spins several times and slows until it stops and the edge is aimed at Doopliss.
Doopliss: "How did you do that?"
Lumis Dongthar: "An unorthodox attack. It is a shame it didn't reach it's target. I am a Master Mimic AND a Dark Sorcerer. Where one fails, the other is there to complement it. Now... I believe this belongs to you." *He makes several movements with his hands, and the sword moves in eights. He then points at Doopliss and the power sword is sent, with Lumis's psychic energy, towards the doppelganger.*
Metal Man (GM): With your strange luck, you hit.
Lumis Dongthar: *The sword reaches doopliss, and a smite explosion is there with psychic energy as well.*
Metal Man (GM): Damage is 40%.
Lumis Dongthar: "I can tell you still won't give up."
Doopliss: "Of course."
Lumis Dongthar: "Tell me, what do you have to gain from this? You can't possibly hope to win against a superior."
Doopliss: "I can gain experience."
Lumis Dongthar: "Wouldn't we all."
Doopliss: "Now then... you're obviously experienced... but the countdown will make short work of you... that, and this!"
Metal Man (GM): 15% damage if that hits.
Lumis Dongthar: *It does.*
Metal Man (GM): Then he tries to grab Lumis. STR checks.
Lumis Dongthar: *it's above even the crit meaning it'd be pointless to roll a d20+7*
Metal Man (GM): Ok. Lumis is grabbed. Then, Doopliss tries to shove him back into the mirror. STR checks again. Lumis is smashed into the mirror he came from. However, the properties of the mirror portal are up to you. Does that warp him back or just smash his head into the wall?
Lumis Dongthar: *the latter.*
Metal Man (GM): *SMASH* another 15%.
Lumis Dongthar gets up and dusts himself off.
Metal Man (GM): Then he finishes his attacks off by... getting in defensive mode. This is the last turn of no magic.
Lumis Dongthar: "I have what most people call 'common sense'. I do not leave a portal open."
Metal Man (GM): Counter is now at 3.
Doopliss: "I guess I'll have to learn how to make such a portal, then."
Lumis Dongthar: "Only one of our own can do such a task." *He goes and floats away to get out of melee range. He then puts up his cape to enhance his own defense. "Now the battle will turn to my extreme favor once again."
Doopliss: "Hmmmm... I'm kind of... out of attack options... unless! " *He fires Starstorm again at Lumis.*
Lumis Dongthar: "What a pity." *He combines his cape in combination to his energy to repel and block all the stars. He flips back his cape. It begins to float like wind is blowing on it.* "It seems you are out of options."
Doopliss: "Almost. I have some other, absolutely insane things."
Lumis Dongthar gets into defensive status again. He ends his turn.
Metal Man (GM): The magi jammer ends... and now there's 2 turns until the countdown ends!
Lumis Dongthar: "I believe your seal has now dissipated. And now I am in full control. Surrender, and admit that you are outclassed."
Doopliss: "If I were not the menace I am now, I would submit. However... you have yet to use your own abilities against me. If you use them, you will find yourself in the same situation. My Countdown of doom will annihilate you with great force."
Lumis Dongthar: "My ultimate power, which could cause great pain for you, has been sealed because of that interfering Charles."
Doopliss: "Hahahahahahahaha. At least Aribar sucks at sealing stuff."
Lumis Dongthar: "His mere presence is what seals my power. Not some magic charm or pitty spell. Anyway, I believe it is your final turn to attack."
Doopliss: "It is time to finish you off! Using... uhhhhh..."
Lumis Dongthar: "Stalling, are we? I see you really don't have that much left in you."
Doopliss: "Chain... lightning?"
Metal Man (GM): *Doopliss hits Lumis with a weak yet different lightning attack that deals 10% damage.*
Doopliss: "And... uhhh... HYAAAAH!" *He runs up and delivers punches to Lumis's face.*
Lumis Dongthar: "Desperation is a sign of the weak."
Metal Man (GM): CRIT! 60% damage total.
Lumis Dongthar skids back only 1 centimeter.
Metal Man (GM): After his turn, Countdown goes off.
Lumis Dongthar: "Now that I am in power..."
Doopliss: "You have a single turn until my magic destroys you! Show me what you've got... I'll just copy it back on you."
Lumis Dongthar: "...$#Ac.R..." *He extends his arms to the air. A cyclone appears from the middle of the room and touches the floor. It dissipates, leaving behind the Magi Jammer: A great rune that disables Doopliss's magical attacks. He puts his arms down when it dissipates.*
Lumis Dongthar: "I believe you are familiar with this?"
Doopliss: "You almost had me scared there. I am also familiar with the spell which deactivates it. I am two moves ahead of you already."
Lumis Dongthar: "I would like to see how you can cast a magic spell that disables the jammer's power when it is the jammer itself that blocks you from performing magic. Now as my back up..." *He raises his arms. He then throws them down in Doopliss's direction. It rains a Storm of Stars onto him!*
Metal Man (GM): 2 hits. Doopliss blurrs about, seemingly in many, many places at once.
Lumis Dongthar looks about, easily following his movements.
Doopliss: "You'll have to try harder next time."
Metal Man (GM): * Dancing Mad: Part 2 *
Doopliss: "With the power of the greatest weapon in existence, Mega Magic, I call upon the ultimate destruction energy! ULTIMA!!!!!!!!"
Metal Man (GM): The entire room shakes. A portal opens above Lumis's head, and then explodes. a HUGE pillar of green energy engulfs him and burns a hole in the roof and ceiling.
Lumis Dongthar withstands the attack.
Metal Man (GM): ...That pillar itself explodes outwards a bit, then forms a dome, and implodes.
Doopliss: "Well well. You might be a defensive master, but I haven't even started yet. DISPELL!"
Metal Man (GM): *A great magic flows through the room. The Magi Jammer tries to block it, but immediately glows and then explodes. Also dispelled: All copying.*
Doopliss: "And now, it is time to do something different!" *He morphs into... Aribar.*
Metal Man (GM): Now it is your turn.
Lumis Dongthar collapsed to his knees, using his left arm to hang on. "You... have potential." *He glows with a bright white energy.*
Doopliss: "The Shadow Queen created me as her personal assassin, I have to do these things."
Lumis Dongthar quickly consumes the energy, and is healed at 100%. "Now as for you..."
Doopliss: "Do you admit that we are evenly matched?"
Lumis Dongthar points to Doopliss-Aribar and shoots a purple stream. This energy encompasses all of Doopliss's body. It then torments him a bit, then he forced to revert back to his usual form.
Doopliss: "An excellent move, sure. But I have potential that remains unlocked."
Lumis Dongthar: "You were saying?"
Doopliss: "I have enough energy to slowly wear you down through a variety of attacks, dispell, repeat forever. This will remain a stalemate for a long time."
Lumis Dongthar: "How can you use attacks of other people since I already know what you've thrown at me? Combine that to the ability that you can no longer copy, it means you have little chance of winning."
Doopliss: "Alas... I was afraid of this happening. Luckily, there's something you can't block."
Lumis Dongthar: "I can even block your ability to use your trump card. What else are you hiding?"
Doopliss: "Behold... Grunty's awesome armory of doom!"
Lumis Dongthar: "There will be no outside interference." *He summons a dome barrier to encircle him and Lumis.* ""
Doopliss: "Alright then, slick... you've done yourself a big disfavor." *RAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA AAAAAAAAAA AAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!*
Lumis Dongthar: "I suppose this means you consider me an enemy?"
Metal Man (GM): Doopliss glows again. Not exactly morphing... but going into trance mode.
Doopliss: "I consider you dead as dirt!"
Lumis Dongthar: "Ahhh... the legendary trance mode. So this is you true desperation. This... will be spectacular!"
Doopliss: "With the latent powers bestowed by those I have copied, I bring forth, the ultimate darkness of the Shadow Queen!" *Is surrounded by purple fire* "If you can damage me at all, maybe I will let you live."
Metal Man (GM): * Dancing Mad: Final Part.*
Lumis Dongthar: "That looks very entertaining... perhaps I could share in your darkness."
Doopliss: "I'd like to see you try." *A rather nasty smirk appears on his face.*
Lumis Dongthar summons the depths of his power. He powers a black orb that is sent into the middle of the room. The black orb grows in power as it opens a gateway to his own realm.
Doopliss: *He simply laughs at the portal.*
Lumis Dongthar: "My world is what some call a nightmare... a Dark Land, if you would. I do believe that your power comes from the Dark."
Doopliss: "I was created in the hopes of turning this world into such a place as well."
Lumis Dongthar: "This is your one only shot. Hit me now... or be defeated."
Doopliss: "Then the converse shall be true. I shall hit you now, and not be defeated!" *The faint ghostly imprint of the Shadow Queen appears around Doopliss. He clenches his hands into fists...*
Metal Man (GM): *A white energy can be heard, as it hits the portal, sealing it shut... the white light then flies in a beam through Lumis, and bounces off of the walls, continuously getting stronger, until it cannot be held anymore by the orb of darkness, which also shatters. The explosion causes the whole room to collapse, light energy blinding the entire world for a second, burning every bit of Lumis it can touch.*
Doopliss: "HOLY!!!!!!!!!" *He is, actually, surprised at the attack he did. He wanted Dark energy wave... why, of all things, did Holy come out of it? He certainly doesn't know He falls to one knee, almost completely exhausted by that attack which he accidentally summoned.* "What... is this power... where did it come from? How could... I do this?"
Lumis Dongthar: *Doopliss hears clapping.*
Doopliss: "Lumis? Where are you?"
Lumis Dongthar appears as the white energy begins to fade. He claps... and is barely scratched.
Metal Man (GM): * Another World of Beasts, Ff6, plays *
Doopliss: "Hmph. I did not expect to summon my opposite element."
Lumis Dongthar: "...I've won."
Doopliss: "Hmph. Just what are you, anyway?"
Lumis Dongthar: "I told you. I am Lumis Dongthar, Master Mimic and Dark Sorcerer."
Doopliss: "Perhaps you should have fought the Void. He was much like you. From another dimension... invincible..."
Lumis Dongthar: "He was not invincible. Though it took full power, I once defeated him when he tried to take my realm. He was then banished, never to return."
Lumis Dongthar: "What is your name?"
Doopliss: "I am Doopliss, the Shadow Queen's top representative."
Lumis Dongthar smiles. He then chuckles. He walks to Doopliss, both side by side with him facing one way and Doopliss facing another.
Doopliss: "Let me guess... only Charles can defeat you."
Lumis Dongthar: "As I said, you have potential. But know this... You will always be a lower-class mimic. Now if you'll excuse me, I must return." *He laughs maniacally.*
Doopliss: "See you later."
Lumis Dongthar goes off, his barrier dissolved. He enters the mirror and disappears.
Doopliss: "Make sure to destroy the Questers!" *After Lumis has left* "He defeated the Void? Why didn't he tell me first!"
Metal Man (GM): Meanwhile, the group is at the HQ as normal. Things are all fine, peachy keen.
Wolfman and VG are in R&R.
Metal Man (GM): You are ..Until....
Garrick Fy`aar is currently busting through many a bad wire frame in the holoroom, as usual.
VG: "It's my turn for the TV you know... give me the remote!"
Metal Man (GM): *SCHREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEECH.*
Gibby is sleeping.
Metal Man (GM): Something heavy is coming in from high up.
Charles Magellean: "Aiiie!"
Metal Man (GM): *SMASH.*
Wolfman: "What the heck?!?" *Gets bonked by VG.*
Metal Man (GM): An explosion nearby.
Garrick Fy`aar comes tearing out of the holoroom, gun drawn, eyes darting around. He quickly makes for the explosion.
VG: "Sorry for the bonking... but what was that?"
Metal Man (GM): The screens all suddenly go out, as does the electricity. It goes back on, displaying a message.
Wolfman notes the TV is gone.
Charles Magellean gets up from his kitchen stool and frantics around to see where it's coming from.
Wolfman notes it comes back on.
???: "Help... diustress call... our ship has been sabotaged... Help... Heeelllllp!"
Metal Man (GM): The message then cuts off with another explosion.
Wolfman: "Looks like more trouble... VG, see if you can get some training in through SIMBER. I'm going to the Big Room."
SIMBER: "Trajectory calculated... 100 feet south of entrance to HQ."
Digifanatic: "Hmm... I wonder whose ship..."
Wolfman: "...nevermind; thanks SIMBER."
SIMBER: "There is not much time. The reactors aboard it are going critical."
Wolfman goes to the entrance; VG goes towards the holo rooms. (no need to worry about VG now)
Garrick Fy`aar is currently running by the light of his Dex, trying to make his way to the explosions. He probably will get to the entrance of the Stadium same time as everyone else.
Digifanatic: "Let's see what's going on..."
Wolfman: "Try to patch into their systems and offer help from here; I'm going out there." *He is at the entrance... by now he'd think.*
SIMBER: "Their computers are not responding."
Garrick Fy`aar: "Ship crash?"
Metal Man (GM): You're all at the entrance, besides those who didn't come.
Charles Magellean opens his own dex that he somehow came up with. He sees the coordinates and pretty much meets where everyone else is at.
Garrick Fy`aar goes through without an answer and keeps moving.
Metal Man (GM): You see a long, narrow ship, crashed into the ground.
Wolfman: "Do your best to get through to them SIMBER. Everyone else, ready to meet them?"
Charles Magellean: "...I just wonder something. What is a ship doing on a landlocked country?"
Wolfman: "It could be a spaceship."
Digifanatic leaves the main entrance and heads out towards the ship.
Wolfman follows Digi.
Metal Man (GM): The front of it is open... it's a very sleek ship. Flames surround it. It's rather large, but not too much...
Garrick Fy`aar heads for the entrance of the ship, looking inside...
Charles Magellean follows Wolf that follows Digi.
Digifanatic: "Wonder who or what took it down..."
Wolfman uses his Dex to try to find an opening into the ship... rescuing might be needed.
Metal Man (GM): You reach the opening on the ship... it's in the bridge.
Wolfman: "Hello?!?" *He hopes the others can hear him.*
Metal Man (GM): The bridge is empty. Nobody there. A bunch of controls jammed to 'shield' and 'brakes'.
Digifanatic follows Wolf.
Garrick Fy`aar: "Hey!! Anybody in here?!"
Metal Man (GM): 'Help' is scratched into a console.
Wolfman goes to the console... what the...?
Garrick Fy`aar tries to move into the back areas of the ship.
Metal Man (GM): There are two doors.
Charles Magellean: "This be a terrible fate."
Metal Man (GM): An alarm is going off. 1 is 'Engineering'
Wolfman tries to figure out how to operate this console... NOW what?
Metal Man (GM): 2 is 'Crew Quarters 1 is on the left, 2 is on the right. The doors are broken. You have to push them open.
Garrick Fy`aar: "I'll check their quarters..."
Metal Man (GM): The consoles are dead.
Garrick Fy`aar tries to head through door number 2...
Metal Man (GM): Inside door number two is a rather good condition walkway.
Wolfman decides to go to the Engineering row. He attempts to push the door open.
Metal Man (GM): It moves across a narrow section of the ship. Wolfman opens the jammed Engineering door. The Engineering Corridor is in bad condition.
Garrick Fy`aar looks around, thinking what could have happened as he walks down the walkway, drawing out his gun. "Dex... a little light please?"
Dex: "Light activated."
Wolfman gets out his Dex again to hopefully find anything alive or useful.
Charles Magellean: "It is in bad shape."
Digifanatic cautiously moves through.
Garrick Fy`aar shines his light around, walking down the path as he looks for survivors...
Metal Man (GM): Wolfman: No survivors yet... a small trail of blood leading to the next door.
Charles Magellean followed Garrick.
Metal Man (GM): Garrick and co: The door ahead is locked shut.
Wolfman notes some blood on the ground... it goes to another door? He attempts to go through that door.
Garrick Fy`aar: "...Dex, anyone on the other side?"
Metal Man (GM): You go through the door, Wolfman. Inside is a computer core.
Digifanatic looks at the trail of blood. "Dex, is there any way you could possibly run a DNA test?"
Dex: "Unable to scan. Raising radiation levels are interfering."
Wolfman: "Digi, see if you can get this computer up."
Garrick Fy`aar knocks on the door.
Digifanatic: "Alright... Dex, ignore the blood for now."
Garrick Fy`aar: "If anyone is in there, stand clear!"
Metal Man (GM): The door does not respond.
Garrick Fy`aar goes to blast the lock.
Metal Man (GM): Digi: You activate the computer...
Computer: "Booting up routine initiated. Memory chips online. CPU online. Operating System is missing. Shutting down."
Metal Man (GM): Everyone hears that, FYI. The computer shuts back on.
Garrick Fy`aar: "...heh."
Wolfman: "Missing Operating system?"
Metal Man (GM): Garrick: You blast the door. It doesn't open.
Charles Magellean: "I see."
Garrick Fy`aar: "Son of a..."
Digifanatic: "This is an odd computer."
Garrick Fy`aar exchanges clips for his dumdum rounds, then looks back to Locos.
Digifanatic: "The OS probably got damaged in the wreck..."
Garrick Fy`aar: "You'd better stand back."
Wolfman: "Sounds like we need a Red Shroom boot disk or something." (aka, parody of Red Hat)
Charles Magellean nods in acknowledgement.
Metal Man (GM): Flames are everywhere, as well.
Charles Magellean steps back.
Garrick Fy`aar aims at the lock and blasts it with a few dumdum rounds.
Wolfman tries to find other things useful in this room as well.
Metal Man (GM): Wolf: You find a bunch of... warning messages. 'Reactors: Overheating'
Digifanatic goes back to trying to use the Dex to DNA test the blood.
Metal Man (GM): 'Intruders Detected'
Dex: "...DING! Human blood."
Metal Man (GM): Garrick's shots hit the door... no effect.
Wolfman: .oO(What happened to this crew anyway?)
Garrick Fy`aar: "Son of a... Wolf, come in."
Metal Man (GM): There's two doors, Wolf. One goes dead ahead... Another one goes to the right.
Digifanatic: "Okay... that's good so far. Do you actually know who it was?"
Wolfman hears a beep on his dex... he answers. "This is Wolfman."
Garrick Fy`aar: "It's Garrick. We can't get into the barricks. I'm headed your way with Locos." *He turns and heads for Wolf's position.*
Wolfman: "Good idea; there are two more doors in my area, and 2 in each is better than 1 in each."
Metal Man (GM): Garrick: ...The door back is locked!
Garrick Fy`aar: "...what." *He kicks the door. Hard.*
Metal Man (GM): *DING* *DING* *DING.*
Charles Magellean: "...Be prepared. I sense something happening."
Metal Man (GM): The door does not fall. You hear some metallic objects drop.
Garrick Fy`aar turns to the sound, gun at the ready.
