Super Smash Quest - Story - Chapter 139: Death of a Jentanian
Date: 1:01:11 PM, February 11th, 2005.
Wolfman goes over to G&W's area.
Metal Man (GM): Mr. Game and Watch is there.
Wolfman: *DING* *Resourceful Quirk activated* "Hello G&W."
Mr. Game and Watch: "Hello."
Wolfman: "I think I'm getting too powerful here... I wish to turn a badge in and trade it for something else."
Mr. Game and Watch: "Okay."
Wolfman puts out the Power Smash badge. "In place of this... I'm thinking the Grab Badge will suit me well."
Aribar walks into line behind Wolfman... He's humming a tune and appears to be in good spirits.
Mr. Game and Watch: *Gets the appropriate stuff for Wolfman.*
Wolfman turns off his Close Call badge right now... it won't do any good at this point. "Factoring the trade-in, what do I owe you?" *Punching *(Gloves/'Unarmed' Combat) *He waits patiently for G&W to give a total... he probably knows I'm resourceful or something.*
Metal Man (GM): So far... 1970 coins. One sec...
Mr. Game and Watch: "That will be 4,770 coins. That will be 1,300 coins."
Wolfman gives G&W the Power Smash badge and 1300 of his coins for the Grab Badge. "Thank you." *He takes his new Grab Badge and goes to his office. He sticks the Close Call badge inside his super secret vault, right now unable to use it until he builds up more strength.*
Metal Man (GM): It is at the item shoppe.
Aribar walks up to GW and asks for five Lightning Topazes and a Maple Syrup. He then puts 1900 coins down on the counter. "Seems like you're getting some good business..."
Metal Man (GM): GW nods and hands you all of what you ask. Final price: 1900 coins.
Mr. Game and Watch: "Yes, indeed! Especially after Grunty's stock exploded."
Aribar: "Heh... You can thank us for that... Maybe we'll finally get a break from the action for a day or two... Well, see you later. I'm off to the R&R to relax!"
Mr. Game and Watch: "Ahhh. See you."
Aribar collects his items and heads off to the R&R humming a tune.
Metal Man (GM): Aribar: You walk into R&R, and see Meier Link and Shadow Aribar AND Metal Sonic watching TV.
Shadow Aribar: "This show sucks. What is it with you and Home and Gardens?"
Meier Link: "I just like gardening, that's all."
Metal Sonic: "..."
Aribar: "..." *The elf unsheaths Moonlight.* "What the bloody hell are you all doing here?!"
Shadow Aribar: "We're all going to fight over who gets to keep you as a possession."
Meier Link: "Lord Zio wants to capture and tor--- I mean, treat you nicely."
Aribar: "...You can't do that! I'm not some possession to be fought over!"
VG arrives at R&R... or at least, close enough to listen in.
Metal Sonic: "Don't worry. If I win, you'll just have to tell everyone that I am the king of the stadium."
Digifanatic: "Hmm..." *He goes at G&W's for a weapon upgrade or two...*
Aribar: "...What are you still doing ali--Err... Why aren't you all trying to kill me? I mean, as in right now..."
Shadow Aribar: "Because we get to do that in the arena."
Aribar: "...Who decided this?"
VG: "Wolfman." *He gets in Aribar's viewing range.*
Metal Sonic: "Wolfman, of course. It was so considerate of him."
Metal Sonic: "Now I get to fight some truly evil people, instead of, say, holograms and Link."
Aribar: "..." *Twitchy twitch.*
Meier Link: *Is writing down a recepie for pizza.*
Aribar: "SIMBER! Locate Wolfman this instant!"
SIMBER: "Locating... locating..."
VG: "I'm sorry if you don't like it... but from what Wolfman told me, if he didn't arrange the match, you would have been awakened."
Metal Man (GM): Wolfman: Where are you?
VG: "SIMBER: What authority level is Aribar?"
Wolfman is right now in his office; he has just put Close Call away.
SIMBER: "Well, if Wolfman wants to be located, then I shall locate him."
Aribar looks at Veegee... "Uhhh... I see... Can you tell me where your taller half is?"
SIMBER: *Appears in Wolfman's office* "Do you want to be located, Wolfman?"
Wolfman: "...Aribar probably. Let him know."
VG: "Probably in his office."
Metal Man walks by, carting a cart full of junk towards the lab.
VG: "Just don't try to kill him or anything."
Shadow Aribar: "...All of these flowers and sunshine on the TV is depressing."
Aribar: "Thanks... Nah! I'll just severely maim him!"
Shadow Aribar: "Where is the death and destruction?"
Aribar dashes off to Wolf's office.
VG: "Just follow your other self SA."
Meier Link: "Quiet! I must record four more recepies!"
Metal Man (GM): *At Wolfman's office* Wolfman: You hear a knocking at the door.
Aribar slams his fist against Wolfman's door. "Open up!"
Metal Man (GM): ...A fist slamming into the door, that is.
Wolfman goes to open the door. "Coming."
Aribar says the following once Wolf opens the door."Ah... Hiya, Wolfman... How are you? Schedule any good arena matches lately?"
Wolfman: "...yes, I did. Sorry if you don't like it... but it was either that, or wake you up in the middle of the night."
Aribar: "Ah. Like one where I'm the prize between three major villains?"
Wolfman: "I didn't say I was in my best thinking mood... I just got out of the Repair-o-matic, and I wanted to have this settled diplomatically.'"
Aribar: "Well, don't worry, Wolf... I'm not mad..."
Wolfman: "That, and the fans do want to see a big match... it's nearly sold out already." *Phew.*
Aribar: "I'm INFURIATED at your stupidity!"
Wolfman: "Calm down Aribar, calm down. Metal Sonic does have a good chance to win you know if you work with him."
Aribar: "If I get killed... Again... My funeral is going to come out of YOUR wallet!"
Wolfman: "If it's down to the two of you, it won't matter." *He gulps.* "...I... understand."
SIMBER: "I have the current predicted outcome."
Wolfman: "Please say it's good SIMBER... if not for Aribar's sake, then for my own."
Aribar: "...And the results are?"
SIMBER: "First place: Metal Sonic. Second place: Meier Link. Third place: Shadow Aribar. Fourth place: Aribar. It is predicted all three other combatants will mob Aribar to prevent him from winning. There is a slim chance that Metal Sonic may start beating someone else up, if they have taken more damage than Aribar."
Wolfman: "Are you sure you aren't basing that on the latest Mushroom Associated Press polls?"
SIMBER: "No. I am basing on their histories."
Wolfman just nods.
SIMBER: "Meier Link and especially Shadow Aribar will attack Aribar foremost. Of course, they may fight each other in the process. But still, they will mostly attack Aribar. Confirmation needed from tin can: Wolfman."
Metal Man walks in, with a bill.
Wolfman: "...yes Metal?"
SIMBER: "I am unable to feel pain."
Wolfman: "SIMBER, make a mental note: I am not a tin can."
Aribar: "...Urge to kill rising..."
Metal Man: "Well, the bill for all those magazines you've been ordering just came."
Aribar: "You've any idea when my match will be?"
Wolfman: "I hope they charged me the right amount... what is it?"
Metal Man: "Like... Home and Gardens, Replacement parts monthly, and The Evil Villain Times."
Wolfman: "...wait; I never ordered those!"
Metal Man: "...Let's see... Meier Link, Metal Sonic, and... Shadow Aribar? Oops. Sorry."
Wolfman: "Aribar, the match and tickets are set up so that when it's fight time, everyone will be there."
Metal Man: "I just am not used to getting mail from smashers and villains in my mailbox."
Wolfman: "As for your training... hmm..."
Metal Man nods and walks out.
Wolfman: "Would 75 level 1s and 25 level 2s be better?" *He wonders HOW mail from the villains got in... they only got here a DAY ago.*
SIMBER: "Wolfman: The mail of these times is transmitted via teleporters. Thus, they move at the speed of light... Yet another invention of Ivan Robotnik."
Wolfman makes a mental note of that.
Aribar: "...I think I'm getting a headache from this... If you need me I'll be in the holoroom beating up goombas..." *The elf walks off... About twenty feet down the hallway he kicks the wall in anger before continuing on.*
Metal Man (GM): The wall is damaged, then it regenerates.
Nova: "Wall damage has been repaired."
Wolfman: "Well, I took a chance... at least it's not as bad as I thought it was going to be. Thank you NOVA."
Nova: "You are welcome."
Metal Man (GM): Aribar: While going to the holo rooms... you see Phantom's old, moldy ghost sitting around.
Phantom: "...I'm so lonely... that Garrick persona nd his mood swings are gone! I have nobody to sell my gun to..."
Aribar: "...Why is this place haunted by villans?" *He stops and looks at Phantom.*
Phantom: "Oh, me? I am merely a dead Quester. The bad part of me was viciously killed. If you can see me... you must be very angry. Thinking of... revenge..."
Aribar: "Didn't you go ballistic before we had to kill me? ... Yes... I'm angry... And thinking of revenge a bit."
Phantom: "Well, there's always my powerful machinegun... only 10,000 coins. The strongest one in existence, found by Zero."
Aribar: "I've already got a weapon, and I'm also over 9000 coins short."
Phantom: "Oh, so you are... do you have any items to sell? Or... I could buy it for you and you could pay me back. It is my last obligation on this plane... to sell my gun."
Aribar: "Besides some gems and syrup, no... And I said I already have a weapon."
Phantom: "For it is some of my unfinished business."
Aribar: "...Your last obligation? ... So that is why you're looking to sell this gun of yours?"
Phantom: "Very well. But... I shaaaaallll remain to haunt others when they are in an angry state."
Metal Man (GM): Phantom snaps his fingers, and disappears. Phantom's voice echoes one last time.
Aribar: .oO(I'm going loony...)
Phantom: "I am looking to sell it... because I have no one to pass my legacy on to!"
Metal Man (GM): It finally disappears completely. You see Kirby, walking down the wallway.
Aribar mumbles, "Well, you won't find a buyer here..."
Metal Man (GM): Kirby is... wearing a cape of gold.
Aribar: "What's with the cape?"
Metal Man (GM): Kirby is also eating various expensive truffles.
Aribar: "..." *He gets out his dex and attempts to put it into a typing mode before handing it to Kirby.* "Why do you look so fancy?"
Metal Man (GM): Kirby looks at the dex and types into it. 'I got a lot of ceeeesh fom ween meatle soonic win!' He types horribly.
Aribar: "...Make sure to bet for me in the upcoming match. It is something I won't be losing. Despite the polls saying I'm gonna be last..."
Metal Man (GM): 'Oh? Sowwy... me beeeeet 150,000,000,000 coooins oooon meatl soonic!'
Aribar: "Well... Tell your friends to bet on me, okay?"
Metal Man (GM): The amount of coins is staggering. Of course, you do notice a trail of dropped coins from where Kirby has been walking. 'oookay'
Aribar: "Oh, you're dropping some coins..."
Metal Man (GM): '...my golden koooooopa sheellll has a hole n itttt!' Kirby takes out a golden koopa shell and punches a cork back into it. The shell is jingling with money. Kirby puts it back, and walks towards the big room.
Aribar takes his Dex back from Kirby and continues walking down the hall after saying goodbye to Kirby... After a bit he calls out for Simber.
Aribar: "Is betting legal here? Betting on matches that is..."
Aribar: "Oh... I was just wondering since Kirby had over 150 billion coins... That does seem like a lot now."
SIMBER: "Kirby became rich after Metal Sonic defeated Giga Bowser, Master Hand, and Crazy Hand simultaneously, against all odds. ...But he only has 150 thousand coins. It isn't too much, though. Oak made a trillion coins off of your dark cube."
Aribar: "...Either he can't type or something's wrong."
SIMBER: "His house is made of gold. Kirby is probably bad at typing, or factoring in the winnings he will make for betting against you. Probably bad typing. Since... the odds are as following:. Metal Sonic: 1 in 2. Meier Link: 1 in 10. Shadow Aribar: 1 in 40. Aribar: 1 in 10,000. Star Fox has a rather large bet on you."
Aribar: "Simber, you sure make a guy feel good... That was---Star Fox?! Really?!"
SIMBER: "Yes. His bet is opposite Kirby's."
Aribar: "...That makes me feel a little better I guess..."
SIMBER: "If you win... Kirby will probably be very poor. He's bet all 150 thousand coins against you."
Aribar: "...Just wondering... Do I get ANYTHING at all if I win?"
SIMBER: "And Fox... has bet 150 coins... You get freedom and... uhhh..."
Aribar: "I thought you said he made a large bet."
SIMBER: "Some stadium technology. Yes, well. Star Fox's bet is equal to Kirby's with those odds. And that's all of Star Fox's money. Grunty has been running him out of business."
VG goes to the Box Office room to check up on the odds from his own spot... he sees the same things that SIMBER just told Ari... only in a more... business context. "...Aribar... I wish you luck..." *He stays there for awhile.*
Aribar: "...Is it illegal to bet for myself?"
SIMBER: "No, it is not."
Aribar: "...Where are the betting booths at?"
SIMBER: "The stadium lobby, next to the ticket stands."
Aribar: "Thank you..." *He starts towards the stadium lobby... He's feeling generous a bit... At least Star Fox has faith in him!* "Hrm... I know! If I win... I'll give them all the money from my winnings..."
Metal Man (GM): You reach the lobby. It's full of people. The lines for tickets are so long, there are bridges that rise above them!
Aribar waits in the betting line, his 230 coins in hand... Well, in a bag in his hand at least.
Metal Man (GM): The betting line isn't too long. However, you do see someone who looks mildly familiar.. ..Some fat man wearing a large hat.
???: "Uh. Yes. I'll bet 5000 coins for Meier Link."
Aribar squints at the man who dares to bet against him...
Attendant: "Here is your receipt."
Metal Man (GM): ...He's rather round and... traces of red on him.
???: "Thank you." *He starts heading for the stands.*
???: "Where? I'll... ...I am not Mario."
Aribar: "...Then you're Santa?"
???: "...I'm not Santa. santa doesn't bet on fights."
Aribar: "Then who are you?"
???: "...I do not have to tell you that, sl... silly."
Aribar: "And don't you have faith in me winning? I'm Aribar..."
???: "Aribar? Uhhh... yes. Well, I have to go."
Aribar: "..." *He sighs and heads back to the line.*
Luigi: "I bet 20,000 coins on-a Aribar!"
Attendant: "...Here's your receipt."
Aribar: "...At least some other people have faith in me."
Metal Man (GM): Aribar gets to the front of the line.
Aribar: "'allo... 230 coins for myself please." *He puts the bag of coins on the counter.*
Attendant: "Here's your receipt. If you win, you gain 2,300,000 coins."
Aribar: "Thank you."
Metal Man (GM): You notice that the fight is scheduled to begin soon.
Aribar takes the receipt, checks to make sure it has his name on it, and decides to head to the locker room to wait.
VG takes note of the legal betting from the Box Office room. He notes that Aribar is using his coins... well, for a gutshot. "...Ari, I know you can't hear me in here, but even though you are very crazy right now, good luck."
Wolfman is an executive... it would be wrong for him to bet.
Deloth: "Hrm, match is about to start..." *He heads out of his room and down to the betting booths.*
Digifanatic moves away from G&W's area, despite patiently, and heads towards the Stadium... but not wanting to bet.
Aribar: .oO(Okay, Aribar... You can do this. Hopefully Metal Sonic will be on your side at first... You can easily take down Meieir Link with just two spells... Ooh, you can do this I hope...)
Digifanatic: *Sees Del near the betting booths* "Hello, Del."
Deloth: "Hi, Digi." *He bets 400 coins on Ari.*
Metal Man (GM): Write down your bets, everybody.
Wolfman bets nothing.
Digifanatic: "Man, this is gonna be a crazy fight... I'm with Ari all the way... man, I hate to see him be made mincemeat out of..."
VG bets nothing.
Charles Magellean gets carted in by either Metal or a random Smasher.
Digifanatic isn't going to either.
Charles Magellean: "Okay, let's see..."
Metal Man (GM): Everybody who's at the stands is there. The battle is about to begin.
Charles Magellean: "What's the life count and damage handicap?"
Metal Man (GM): Aribar: You're warped into one of the four corners of the Stadium itself.
Deloth runs at mach two to the stands to watch the match.
Metal Man (GM): A display appears over the arena.
Digifanatic: "I dunno."
Metal Man (GM): Endurance Match
Digifanatic: "SIMBER, what's the rules?"
Metal Man (GM): 3 lives 150% Very Low Items
Deloth sits down, gasping and panting.
Metal Man (GM): Arena: Mute City
VG takes a secret warp pipe to a special box office.
Charles Magellean: "I'll put 175 coins on Metal Sonic, 75 coins on Meier Link, 25 on Shadow Aribar, and 600 on Aribar."
Digifanatic heads over to a seat...
Wolfman leaves his office to go to the special box office.
Charles Magellean: "Unless we can only bet on one person..."
Attendant: "You can bet on as many people as you want."
Charles Magellean: "And the minimum?"
Attendant: "One person, 1 coin."
Digifanatic rests his hand on the seat next to him, opposite Deloth, saving it for Locos. "Smashers sitting together here!"
Charles Magellean: "Then make it 200 on Sonic, 100 coins on the vampire, 250 on Shadow, and 500 on Aribar."
Metal Man (GM): The battle music is: sd4pus8p.mid
Deloth takes out a small bag on corn and shoots it with flame breath "Want some popcorn, Digi?"
Digifanatic: "Eh, why not?"
Deloth hands the bag to Digi.
Digifanatic keeps his right hand on the seat next to him, digging into the popcorn bag with his left.
Metal Man (GM): The four fighters appear on the central platform, which floats over the track of Mute City.
Digifanatic: "Locos! We're over here."
SIMBER: "Preparing for battle."
Meier Link gets in his position... he is on the right most edge of some sort of floating platform above a race track.
SIMBER: "Three. Two. One. GO!"
Charles Magellean: "This is what gambling is all about. Distributing your bets, and taking risk!"
Aribar warps down to the battle field and appears in a blast of lightning. He unsheaths Moonlight, his trusty shortsword, and raises it into the air. "For Whaller!"
Metal Sonic: "Take this!" *He immediately attacks Shadow Aribar with a powerful punch.*
Metal Man (GM): CRIT!
Shadow Aribar: "ARGH!"
Metal Man (GM): 60% damage. Shadow Aribar is instantly stunned.
Metal Sonic: "And this!" *Curls up into a ball, and flies about the arena.*
Metal Man (GM): Metal Sonic hits everybody for 25% damage.
Meier Link is impressed with this Metal Sonic--oomph! Too impressed.
Metal Sonic: "And finally... take this, ugly vampire! LIGHTNING DESTRUCTOR!"
Metal Man (GM): 30% electric damage per hit... all hit.
VG is definitely impressed by Metal Sonic... this is the first time he's seen him in action.
Shadow Aribar: "Ugh..." *Loses his turn.*
Aribar points his blade at Meier Link. Holy energy circles the blade before firing off at the vampire. Once reaching the foul being it explodes in a blast of divine energy dealing 60% Light damage. "Light Elemental Blast!"
Metal Man (GM): Ouch. (FYI: It instantly hits.)
Meier Link tries in vain to avoid his spell... but can not do so (double damage, right?) He is breathing heavily... this is not good...
Metal Man (GM): Aribar: You may take your next attack.
Meier Link tries in vain to avoid that... but somehow, isn't affected as much.
Aribar: "Gah! Well, I still know you hate fire... Fire Elemental Blast!"
Meier Link then gets blasted by the fire, which does much more...
Digifanatic: "ALRIGHT ARI!" *Whistles.*
Meier Link has a huge smile... one reeking of evil. He goes right towards Aribar to take a bite out of him. He opens his jaws wide......
Meier Link clamps the jaws perfectly, sucking 30% off of him.
Charles Magellean: "As long as Metal Sonic doesn't win, I have a good chance of keeping my money."
Aribar: "Foul beast!"
Meier Link then jumps towards Metal Sonic, landing in the middle to left-of-middle part of the floating platform. He attempts to send some Evil Darkness towards him... since he seems to be helping his target. "...How did you survive the Evil Darkness?"
Metal Sonic: "I am the champion of the stadium!"
Metal Man (GM): *Meier Link died before his turn but came back.*
Meier Link was too shocked that the Evil Darkness didn't work... he somehow faints.
Metal Man (GM): Okay... new round. The platform lowers to the ground. Metal Sonic, literally shocked by Aribar's power, decides to punch him.
Charles Magellean: "...Wonderful... I'm going to either earn a couple mil... or lose 60% of what I spent."
Metal Man (GM): 30% electric damage... insta-stun.
Aribar: "Ou--... Err... Ouch. The pain. Oh, the suffering..."
Metal Sonic: "...What? My attack didn't hurt you? That's impossible!"
Aribar is healed back up to 150%, but is stunned.
Metal Sonic: "Take this!" *He tries to sap Aribar's energy.*
Aribar is hit again.
Metal Man (GM): Aribar loses 45% HP. Metal Sonic, who hasn't taken any damage, doesn't gain any extra HP.
Deloth: "WHOO! GOOOOO, ARI!"
Metal Man (GM): Metal Sonic then attacks Shadow Aribar with lightning.
VG eats some popcorn while watching... this has been some strange match.
Digifanatic: "Everyone gang up the hedgehog!"
Metal Man (GM): Ouch.
Deloth nudges Digi "Next foe down, I say we do the Wave."
Metal Man (GM): He's at 150 EXACTLY. not dead yet, though... He survives.
Metal Man (GM): Shadow Aribar crumbles into a pile of dust.
Metal Sonic: "...Now... to harm you again!" *He saps more of Aribar's energy.*
Aribar can't dodge that attack, or any of these attacks really.
Metal Man (GM): Oops. Scratch that.
Deloth: "C'mon Ari, I've got 4 million riding on you!"
Metal Man (GM): Shadow Aribar comes back.
Shadow Aribar: "Curse you!"
Deloth: "No pressure, though."
Charles Magellean: "Unbelievable... they're being mindless savages, not being Melee fighters who use their mind, heart, and strength."
Metal Man (GM): Shadow Aribar tries to mind-control Metal Sonic. Metal Sonic is commanded to... electricute himself! Metal Sonic hits himself with three lightning bolts and dies.
VG sees most of the fans cheering... it's been awhile since they have seen a brutal fight.
Shadow Aribar: "And now... to destroy Aribar!"
VG notes the scoreboard... Aribar is in the lead right now!
Deloth: "Another one bites the dust."
Shadow Aribar: *He runs up to Aribar and slashes at him rapidly.*
Digifanatic: "Yeah! The champ goes down once! Ari's gonna be the last to live!"
Metal Man (GM): 1 hit. 40% darkness damage.
Aribar somehow manages to avoid the first two slashes before being cut by the third. "Ug!"
Shadow Aribar: "And now... shut up!"
Metal Man (GM): *Aribar is Sealed*
Deloth: "Oh, dear."
Digifanatic: "Oh nuts..."
Charles Magellean: "It's still anyone's game."
Deloth: "If he's sealed, he's going to have to use hand-to-hand attacks..."
Aribar dashes up to his Shadow-self and slices it twice. "!!! ! !!!! !!"
Metal Man (GM): He dodges both rather smoothly.
Aribar backs up and gets into a defensive position.
Meier Link takes this opportunity to give Aribar some slashes of his own... through a Slashing Assault!
Aribar is possibly hit twice. He manages to block a slash with Moonlight and only takes 5% damage.
Metal Man (GM): So Meier hits Aribar once, gets counter-attacked, then hits Aribar again.
Aribar takes 10% darkness then... Enough for his final badge...
Meier Link stumbles for some reason... he is not used to these fights of... blech; honor.
Aribar stabs Meieir Link in between his combo.
Meier Link receives a rude awakening by the stab.
Metal Sonic: "It's time to finish him! HYAAAAAH!"
Metal Man (GM): Metal Sonic tries to continually sap Aribar's energy.
Aribar is sapped for the last remaining bits of his health.
Meier Link gives a smile... at least Aribar showed us that he [got] sucked.
Metal Man (GM): Aribar is killed by that attack.
Deloth boos Metal Sonic.
Metal Sonic: "And now... Take this!" *He attacks everybody with spindash again.*
VG notes the crowd is split with that attack.
Metal Man (GM): 25% damage to everybody.
Meier Link gets knocked onto the ground by that.
Digifanatic: *Boos MS's attack* "How dare he kill our Jentanian!"
Metal Man (GM): Then he goes over and tries to punch out Shadow Aribar. Hit. 30% damage... Shadow Aribar is stunned again.
Meier Link Link's HP: 116/150 HP. Two lives left.
Shadow Aribar: 95/150 HP. Two lives left. Stunned.
Aribar comes down off the revival platform, and he's none too happy about what just happened. He first tries a Light Elemental Blast at Shadow Aribar for 60% Light...
Metal Man (GM): He only takes 30% damage.
Shadow Aribar: "Ugh!"
Aribar: "Blast! I keep forgetting that..." *He then fires an Ice Elemental Blast at Meier Link.* "Winter's fury!" (60% Ice.)
Meier Link sees Aribar attacking with ice... and gets chilled. He quickly gets towards Aribar and tries to disable him greatly with the Evil Darkness.
Metal Man (GM): *OUCH! OUCH! OUCH!* ...D'oh.
Meier Link: *NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!*
Deloth: *D%#^ it, I want my 4 million!*
Meier Link tries the Evil Darkness again... his foe will NOT be so lucky this time!
Aribar feels encircled by the evil energies but quickly throws off the force with an unknown inner strength... He hopes this strength holds out.
Meier Link: "What on earth is keeping you from being affected?!?!?" *He goes for it once more... WITH FEELING!*
Aribar: "I shall not be defeated this day!"
Metal Man (GM): The cars are coming! AHHHHH!!!!
Meier Link quickly jumps high.
Aribar is a bit surprised, but he attempts to avoid the incoming cars.
Metal Man (GM): Aribar fails his dice roll and gets run down by cars for 20% damage.
Meier Link lands safely on the platform... he still doesn't understand how Aribar could avoid the Evil Darkness.
Metal Man (GM): Aribar is hit for a second time! 20% more damage. he lands back on the platform...
VG boos Meier Link for his continuous use of that Evil Darkness.
Metal Sonic: "It's time to destroy you... again!"
Aribar: "Damned cars!!"
Deloth boos Metal Sonic.
Metal Sonic: *He floats up, and flies at Aribar. Three times. With Spindash. Only attacking Aribar.*
Metal Man (GM): CRIT hit CRIT! 125% damage.
Aribar is killed before his badges can be activated.
Deloth walks out.
Metal Man (GM): Aribar is on his final life! ...And Shadow Aribar is trying to control him! INT save! Aribar evades it.
Aribar: "Grrr... I'll defeat you all!"
Metal Man (GM): Shadow Aribar tries it... on Meier Link! INT save for Meier Link!
Meier Link: "...what are you doing?"
Shadow Aribar: "GAH!"
Meier Link: "I did NOT say that you could control me here!"
Shadow Aribar: "...Alright... metallic hedgehog... take this! SLYTOCK!"
Metal Man (GM): ...He hits a car with it.
Metal Sonic: "You call THAT a move? Ha ha ha ha!"
Aribar fires an Electric Elemental Blast at Metal Sonic to see if he has a weakness to it...
Metal Sonic: "Gaaaaaah!" *Double damage.*
Metal Man (GM): He lights up like a christmas tree.
Deloth: *Extra toasty.*
Metal Sonic: "...Crucial... circuits damaged... backups are damaged..."
Deloth walks back.
Aribar: "...Jolt!" *He fires the weaker Jolt spell for 15% Electric--Just enough to finish Metal Sonic off.*
Deloth: "I can't leave..."
Metal Man (GM): Metal Sonic loses his second life! He explodes, making a crater. He's on his final life, too.
Charles Magellean: "...That's all that was needed to defeat Metal Sonic?...Geez."
Meier Link charges after Aribar again... he starts off with some Vampire Biting.
Aribar: "Get off of me, foul vampire!"
Meier Link sinks his teeth into it He then goes... once again... for the Evil Darkness. This has to work SOMETIME, doesn't it?
Announcer: "The battle is getting close to the end! Some idiot forgot to turn on the items! ...And so far, Meier Link and Shadow Aribar are tied for the lead!"
Aribar is weakened mentally from the bite and it shows.
Meier Link FINALLY lands that bugger.
Metal Man (GM): *OUCH.*
Meier Link: *Ari: you are confused, poisoned, stunned, sealed, and blind.*
Deloth: "Che che che che che..." *He slams his head against the seats.*
Shadow Aribar: "Yes! Destroy him!"
Meier Link uses his final action to slash Metal Sonic repeatedly with an Assault.
Metal Man (GM): Hit hit miss.
Metal Sonic: "You dare tangle with ME! I shall terminate you!"
Meier Link: "I'd like to see you try."
Metal Sonic: "LIGHTNING DESTRUCTOR!"
Meier Link gets shocked... and shocked...
Metal Man (GM): Three lightning bolts strike Meier Link for a total of 90% damage. or 30% per hit, depending upon what hits.
Meier Link also gets destructed; he faints.
Metal Man (GM): Then Metal Sonic tries to drain some of Aribar's energy.
Aribar is drained.
Metal Man (GM): He gains 45% HP from Aribar, healing his damaged. Then he spindashes Shadow Aribar.
Charles Magellean: "...The elf is gonna die."
Metal Man (GM): *SMACK* 25%.
Deloth: "Oh ye of little faith."
VG takes note of how this match is going... sure, most of the fans like the insanity... but this is... well, a little much.
Metal Man (GM): Shadow Aribar attacks Metal Sonic with a three-slash assault. One hit. 40% damage. Then he fires Slytock at Meier Link.
Meier Link: "Why are you attacking me--" *He gets infected.*
Metal Man (GM): Meier Link's vampire bite is disabled.
Meier Link finds his jaws... well, numbing.
Metal Man (GM): Finally, he attacks Metal Sonic with more slashes. Hit hit miss! 80% damage!
Shadow Aribar: "I shall win! Haha!"
Metal Man (GM): Oh yeah.
Deloth: "Hey, Shadow Ari! Meier Link said your mother had fleas!"
Meier Link: "How DARE you attack a teammate!"
Shadow Aribar: "Aribar is doomed! He will die on his own."
Meier Link unleashes the Evil Darkness on Shadow Aribar out of pure anger!
Shadow Aribar: "I must have Aribar!"
Meier Link: "I will be the one to have him, not you!"
Metal Man (GM): The extreme power of Shadow Aribar's intelligence blocks the move easily.
Aribar hears the chaos rage on about him, helpless to do anything since he's stunned... He also lost his sense of sight, and his mind... The elf is slowly yet surely losing hope...
Deloth: "This rivalry just might work..."
Shadow Aribar: "Try harder, numb-minded vampire!"
Meier Link: "I'll show you harder!" *Same move.*
Metal Man (GM): The attack continues to do nothing against him.
Shadow Aribar: "Hah! Tricked you into using a hopeless move!"
Meier Link: "Then take this!" *He does a slashing assault instead.*
Metal Man (GM): He lets you hit every time. He's healed 10 for each hit, and gains 5 INT from the attack.
Charles Magellean: "This'll be good."
Shadow Aribar: "Hahahahahahahahahahahahaha!"
Deloth: "Ari, never give up. You have enough spirit to get to the moon and back! You beat these guys before, and you can do it again!"
Shadow Aribar: "Foolish vampire!"
Meier Link gets VERY, VERY, VERY angry!
Metal Sonic: "It is time to take out the garbage." *He attacks everyone with a spindash.*
Metal Man (GM): ...THREE counter attacks.
Metal Sonic: *Gets stuck in the ground.*
Shadow Aribar: "Let's get him!"
Aribar strikes out blindly at MS... Literally.
Metal Man (GM): Shadow Aribar hits MS once with darkness.
Meier Link goes after the downed Metal Sonic with a slashing assault.
Metal Man (GM): Metal Sonic is DEFEATED!
Deloth: "One down."
Digifanatic: "WHOA! He got taken down!"
Metal Sonic: "Gaaaaaaaaaaaah!" *EXPLODE.*
Deloth: "Cross your fingers. Ari's odds just got a little better."
Charles Magellean: "Woohoo! The least I can lose is 50 bucks now!"
Digifanatic: "Del, have a cell phone?"
Metal Man (GM): Shadow Aribar attempts to mind-control Meier again.
Shadow Aribar: "And now! To clinch the match!"
Digifanatic: "Eh, never mind. They're probably here as it is..."
Meier Link: "Want to try that again?"
Metal Man (GM): Meier Link: You somehow manage to mind-control Shadow Aribar instead.
Meier Link is in a battle of wits with this guy.
Charles Magellean: *Cash.*
Meier Link: "I am to be the one that kills Aribar. Just defend yourself on the road." *He emphasizes on the road.*
Metal Man (GM): Shadow Aribar runs onto the road. *BUMP* He takes 20% damage.
Deloth: "Er, Locos. ... Never mind."
Metal Man (GM): He's un-mind controlled and returns, attacking Meier Link with a Vow of Silence.
Digifanatic: "I tell ya, Kirby is not going to be very happy."
Metal Man (GM): *SEAL* Then he attacks Aribar with sword slices.
Meier Link finds himself... sealed?
Charles Magellean nods.
Aribar is hit thrice...
Metal Man (GM): 40% dark damage per hit.
Deloth: "HEY! GET SOME ITEMS IN THERE!" *He sprinkles a bit of salt on his betting slip.*
Digifanatic: "Whar are you doing Del?"
Metal Man (GM): You got... just 1 above the middle. I'm going to say, through some miracle, you are at 1% and free of status effects.
Deloth: "You'll see."
Meier Link looks at Shadow Aribar... then Aribar... He is angry at both... who to choose......
Aribar looks at his foes... "I said I shall not die today, and I meant it!"
Meier Link goes after Shadow Aribar in a blind rage... he is NOT happy of being reduced in power.
Metal Man (GM): All hit! Ummm... though the darkness heals him. So he's healed, and becomes even stronger. You may want to make an INT check. To unseal your other moves. *UNSEALED* Including Vampire Bite.
Charles Magellean: "Game almost done... each have one life... I'm extremely handsome..."
Meier Link takes a BITE out of SA... he really wants to hurt him.
Metal Man (GM): Hit!
Shadow Aribar: "OW!"
Metal Man (GM): ...And so, Meier Link regains 30%.
Meier Link was already at max. He just wanted to damage SA... he feels better now.
Metal Man (GM): He attempts to mind control Aribar. Aribar: INT check.
Meier Link: "I take out Aribar... do you understand that?"
Aribar: "Arrg... By Whaller I'll get through this!"
Shadow Aribar: "Aribar shall take YOU out!"
Metal Man (GM): It fails. He tries it again. INT check, Aribar, again. Aribar is mind controlled... he is commanded to use his most powerful attack against Meier (Exempting light n' dark spells)
Shadow Aribar: "Destroy him!"
Aribar: "Arrg... ELECTIC ELEMENTAL BLAST!"
Deloth: "Kus... not so much!"
Aribar fires an enormous blast of electricity at Meier Link... 240% damage.
Meier Link gets ROCKED with a barrage of electricity....
Digifanatic: "Oh man... I was there before, but not THAT close to death..."
Shadow Aribar: "Hahahahahahahahahahahaha!"
Deloth tries hard to cover a grin.
Charles Magellean: "...Uhh... how ...oh yeah..."
Shadow Aribar: "Yes! YES! Ha ha ha hahahahahaha!"
Meier Link: "Curse you..." *THUD.*
Shadow Aribar: *He watches as Meier is... obliterated* "And now... to destroy Aribar!"
Charles Magellean: "...Woohoo! I'm getting me money now!"
Digifanatic: "Please miss..."
Shadow Aribar: *attacks Aribar with his slices *
Digifanatic: "Del... look away."
Metal Man (GM): 40% darkness per hit.
Aribar attempts to use his arcane magic to avoid the first two slices.
Metal Man (GM): Aribar is defeated.
Shadow Aribar: *He walks into the center of the arena... the winner.*
Aribar falls to the floor, dead... He's failed and his opponent has won...
Deloth slumps in his chair.
Shadow Aribar: "I have won! I have defeated all opposition!"
Charles Magellean: "...Either way, I've won money."
VG gives a light applause.
Deloth: "I hate the world."
Wolfman just hangs his head down...
Deloth: *Heads out of the arena.*
Metal Man (GM): His theme plays in the background. Seiken_Densetsu_3_Electrion_(GuitarMix)_OC_ReMix.mp3
VG: *Fan support* *About 75% liked the match.*
Shadow Aribar: "And now... I have won Aribar and some technology."
Charles Magellean has a net gain of 8,950 coins now.
Deloth stops... again.
Metal Man (GM): ...nearby, you see... both Star Fox and Kirby, out of money.
Wolfman: .oO(Aribar... I'm sorry)
Deloth: "Hold it."
Star Fox: "So close... but at least you lost!"
Deloth: "The technology, fine. But Ari? I DON'T *Bleep bleep* THINK SO."
Shadow Aribar: "It was said by Wolfman himself."
Digifanatic decides to have followed Del.
Charles Magellean nods.
Wolfman: "Shadow Aribar is correct." *He arrives.*
Shadow Aribar: "We fight for Aribar here, instead of waking him up."
Digifanatic walks back and sees Deloth talking to the others, entering the scene.
Wolfman: "I don't recall the technology part... but Aribar was a part of the deal himself."
Charles Magellean gets carted out by a random toad.
Wolfman goes to pick Aribar up, and brings him to the Shadow.
Shadow Aribar: "Thank you for going as you said. I shall remember this for the future."
Digifanatic: "I don't remember anything either about technology!"
VG watches all of this from his sky box... this was a sad day indeed.
Deloth: "Guys, forget that." *He whips out his katana.*
Wolfman: "Deloth... let him go."
Shadow Aribar: "You challenge me to a battle, Deloth? I defeated the strongest people here."
Charles Magellean gets to be... rolled to his comrades.
Aribar has failed himself in the end. He's failed just like he's always failed when needed... As he's carried out of the arena his mind is engulfed in a sea of fear. What will happen to him? What will his shadow do? ... At least he got to see Whaller one last time before his death.
Digifanatic backs off, letting the two talk.
Deloth: "WHY? YOU BETRAYED HIM FOR BOX OFFICE POINTS!"
Shadow Aribar: "I defeated the champion, Zio's strongest person, and my evil nemesis."
Deloth: "I DON'T CARE! I WON'T LET YOU!"
Wolfman: "I'm a businessman first, and a Quester second."
Charles Magellean: "Deloth, stop yelling. Someone mind filling in on what happened."
Wolfman: "I pledged to protect the Stadium and keep the fans happy."
Shadow Aribar: "Now then... let me see..."
Wolfman: "The Stadium was not under direct attack, so the second requirement had to be met."
Deloth: "And this is your idea of making the fans happy?! What about ARI?!"
VG makes his way down to that area.
Metal Man (GM): The fat man walks up to where Deloth is yelling.
Digifanatic: "Yeah, what about him?"
???: "Good job, Shadow Aribar."
Charles Magellean: "...I asked a question. I want an answer."
Deloth whirls around.
Shadow Aribar: "Why thank you, mysterious man."
Digifanatic: "Uh oh... hey Veeg. Good to see you made it..."
VG: "Deloth, I don't fully like what has happened either... but you have to deal with it."
Shadow Aribar: "Well... I defeated everybody in a melee match."
Deloth: "YOU SHUT UP!"
???: "I wouldn't be so loud if I were you, Slick."
Charles Magellean: "...Doopliss."
Deloth: "So, you arranged this, DOOPLISS."
Digifanatic: "I thought for a second..."
Metal Man (GM): He throws off his disguies... he's Ivo Robotnik.
VG goes to Grab and Dunk Deloth to shut him up.
Eggman: "I am not Doopliss."
Charles Magellean gives a perplexed glance.
Eggman: "Now then. I have arranged transportation for Shadow Aribar."
VG: *Deloth: consider yourself dunked and unable to talk for a bit.*
Deloth glances back down to the arena.
Digifanatic: (mumbling) "Sure fooled me..."
Charles Magellean: "My first question: What bets were made?"
Eggman: *He snaps his fingers, and two Shy Guys pick up Aribar and carry him off.*
Metal Man walks in. "Let me recount that."
Wolfman gives Aribar to the shy guys.
Digifanatic: "Okay, this is crazy."
VG: "I hope you enjoyed the match Mr. Robotnik."
Deloth glares at Wolf.
Digifanatic: "VG, not now. We got a crisis on our hands."
VG is also a businessman first, quester second.
Digifanatic: "Oh, sorry..."
Charles Magellean: "...If you people want to be bastards and not answer a question, then I will be off."
VG: "What is the question?"
Deloth chases after the Shy Guys.
Charles Magellean gets carted off by his attendant... then tells him to stop. "What bets have been made that are creating tension?"
Wolfman: "I don't know in particular... I think Fox and Kirby had issues, though."
Metal Man (GM): Aribar: Bet 230 coins on Aribar. Eggman: Bet 5000 coins for Meier Link. Star Fox: 150 on Aribar. Kirby: 150 thou on Metal Sonic. John: 500 on everbody Luigi: 20,000 coins on Aribar, and whatever Locos betted.
Metal Man: "It looks like only John and Locos made money off of this."
Deloth jumps and takes off, following the Shy Guys carrying Ari.
Metal Man (GM): Oh yeah. Locos had 250 coins on Shadow Aribar."
Eggman: "I most certainly enjoyed that match."
Wolfman: "Glad you enjoyed it."
Charles Magellean: "Not that bet... I mean the bet where Aribar gets carried off and Shadow Aribar says something about technology?"
Shadow Aribar: "Oh, that. You see... Meier Link, and I were fighting over who got to take Aribar hostage."
VG: "And Meier lost."
Shadow Aribar: "Wolfman proposed a fight over it. Aribar and Metal Sonic were added in."
Metal Man (GM): Deloth: You follow the Shy Guys, to a mirror, where they disappear. The mirror also is completely shut.
Charles Magellean: "That or no, any and all betting transactions must be sent through the SSQ BC."
Deloth hits the mirror in frustration.
Digifanatic beeps Del on his Dex.
Deloth takes out his Dex.
Digifanatic: "This is Digi. What's going on with those Shys you were chasing?"
Shadow Aribar: "...Well, you see... Wolfman was in charge of registering the bet."
Deloth opens up the Dex's keyboard.
Charles Magellean looks to Wolfman after muttering some words to the toad to turn him.
Deloth: *Typing* *They're taking Ari. They got away through a mirror.*
Wolfman: "I did go through the proper registration at the same time I made the tickets."
Charles Magellean: "...You actually allowed this bet to be made official?"
Digifanatic: "He might be involved with this. Where exactly are you?"
Charles Magellean gives off a glare. He then spits at Wolfman.
Wolfman: "If I didn't, Aribar would have been awakened by us fighting in front of his room, and all of us would have been destroyed."
Charles Magellean: "A businessman you may be... ...but you have no moral."
Wolfman: "That, and I didn't have my Plasma Juice.'"
Metal Man (GM): Deloth: You're a little ways away from the stadium. In a field, where a singular mirror lays.
Wolfman: "...and I was also getting used to the new affects of the Repair-o-matic by Oak."
Deloth: *Typing* *I'm a bit away from the stadium. There's a single mirror out here.*
Wolfman certainly does have morals... he also has priorities.
VG: "Locos, I think you are being a little too hard. Other businesses have to make sacrifices you know."
Charles Magellean: "You or the other Questersh have no morality. Just like that time during the Bowser underground when you would risk the Chaos Emeralds just to escape."
Deloth: *Typing* *I will not let them get away. I WILL find out a way to follow them. He examines the mirror.*
VG used to be a part of the SSS you know.
Metal Man (GM): The mirror... is a simple, flat one.
Digifanatic: "I'll let you people deal with the situation. I'm gonna look for Del."
Charles Magellean: "Business is one thing... being loyal to your comrades takes higher priority. Good day."
Wolfman: "I was able to hold onto the Triforce of Power, so why not the emeralds?"
Metal Man: "Well, you know, now that you mention it..."
Charles Magellean and his toad attendant take off.
Digifanatic exits the area and runs out the HQ, looking for the area Del's at.
Deloth scans the mirror.
Smash Dex: "A normal mirror."
Metal Man: "Perhaps I should pay more attention."
Deloth groans in frustration.
Wolfman: *To Metal* "Perhaps we both goofed up."
Metal Man: "I just didn't pay attention. However... now we must wonder where Aribar went."
Metal Man (GM): *We turn to inside Lumis's lair* Shadow Aribar has brought Aribar, and Eggman.
Shadow Aribar: "...Hmmmm... I wonder where Lumis is."
Metal Man (GM): Aribar: You're awake, but locked up so that you can't move. You can speak, though.
Aribar hrms, remembering something... The elf smiles at his captor. "So... You want me dead, huh?"
Eggman: "Oh... I don't need this disguise anymore."
Doopliss: *Morphs back to normal.*
Shadow Aribar: "Yes."
Aribar: "...Well, I'll just have to deny you that."
Doopliss: "I'll help him. We both decided to team up to destroy you. Lumis will probably help too. Of course, first I want to copy all your abilities. Then... sell them via Grunty's goods!" *Laughs.*
Shadow Aribar: "Then you shall be destroyed. But I need Lumis here..." *Walks around, peeking through mirrors.*
Aribar: "...I can deny both yours and Doopliss's satasfaction in killing and using me in a heartbeat."
Shadow Aribar: "How's that? Boogeyman powers?"
Aribar smirks. "Not telling..."
Doopliss: "...You tell now... or... uhhh... Lumis destroys Whaller!"
Aribar: "Oh, please don't mind control me either! I don't want you to find out prematurely."
Shadow Aribar: "That fight drained me, and I think Zio is out to kill us. So I can't really try that yet. ...I think Metal Sonic is out to kill us too..."
Aribar: "...Lumis has no chance against the Protectors of Whaller, Doopliss. Even if they fail... Erwin won't,"
Doopliss: "Who's Erwin?"
Shadow Aribar: "Lumis is nearly invincible. Only I can match his power. That is why I won that battle."
Aribar: "...Why do you want to know? So you can copy his form AND his name?"
Lumis Dongthar: "I would not be so sure of that, Shadow Elf."
Shadow Aribar: "...Oh. You're here. Great!"
Lumis Dongthar appears upon his throne.
Aribar hrms and finds it ironic... Zio is going to be the one who saves him tonight, and the one who kills him.
Shadow Aribar: *Appears much stronger now, a good deal of dark magic circulating in him* "We captured Aribar... legitly!"
Doopliss: "I came along for fun... lost my bet."
Shadow Aribar: "You shouldn't have bet against me, twit."
Lumis Dongthar: "Be quiet. Both of you."
Metal Man (GM): The both suddenly turn to Lumis and bow.
Aribar: "So, now that the King of Twits is here... What's on your agenda tonight?"
Lumis Dongthar: "You know well that my power has increased between dimensions... even more than yours, Shadow."
Shadow Aribar: "...Perhaps."
Lumis Dongthar: "Do not doubt the Dark Sorcerer realm and their power, Shadow."
Shadow Aribar: "Whatever you say."
Lumis Dongthar holds his finger in the air... power is draining RAPIDLY from Shadow Aribar... something he wasn't able to do on Nintendus. "...For others not familiar to this realm can be quick to realize that they can cease to be if they are not careful."
Shadow Aribar: "..."
Aribar attempts to test the bonds that bind him... The elf wonders if he has any chance of escape. The elf doesn't want to pull out his final weapon unless he has to.
Doopliss: "...Right, uhhh... master. Yes."
Lumis Dongthar holds a densely compact power of Shadow Aribar's just above his finger in orb form. He quickly flicks it back to Shadow Aribar.
Doopliss: .oO(I just hope he destroys Grunty. That hideous rich lady gets on my nerves.)
Shadow Aribar: "I forgot this was your realm... shall we go onto business?"
Aribar: "Oh, I do get a last request before anything happens to me, right?"
Lumis Dongthar: "Our enemies are currently unaware of what we plan to do."
Aribar: "You know... To do something like tell my parents I love them or something like that?"
Lumis Dongthar: "You get no last requests, elf."
Doopliss: *He just smirks.*
Aribar: "Then you just lost out on a secret."
Lumis Dongthar: "Step one is complete."
Aribar smiles... The elf feels like he is in control of the situation even though he's not...
Lumis Dongthar: "Step two involves the resurrection of the Magellean Military."
Doopliss: "Ah, yes. A glorius thing."
Aribar: "...Sorry, but as second in command of the ex-Magellean Military I can't allow you to do that."
Lumis Dongthar: "Since Charles has returned from his home, he has began to doubt the integrity of his comrades and has had a taste of darkness."
Shadow Aribar: "...May I... give you an idea of our two opponents who would most likely interfere?"
Lumis Dongthar: "Proceed."
Aribar: "Yourselves when you try to ursup Lumis?"
Shadow Aribar: "Our public stunt there got Ivan Robotnik's attention. Him and Nova are beginning to notice us."
Aribar: "I mean... Who could stand to be an underling to such an ugly pig like Lumis?"
Lumis Dongthar: "Do what you wish with the elf. Just do not kill him yet."
Aribar: "Why? What do you need me for?"
Doopliss: "Very well. I must get my required things from him. Why, I could use your full identity. They won't go searching for you... if you come back."
Aribar: "...Well, you've done it now..."
Doopliss: "Furthermore, I must spy on the Questers for Grunty. Steal as much as possible."
Aribar: "...I'm probably overreacting, but it is time to pull out a secret weapon... One that none of you can counter."
Lumis Dongthar: "Very well."
Doopliss: "What? Your shoe?"
Lumis Dongthar: "Ivan and Nova will do best to stay out of our way."
Aribar: "No... The only remaining curse in me."
Shadow Aribar: "...Whaaaat? I thought I was all of them..."
Aribar: "One that will prevent you the satisfaction of killing me and using me..." *He smiles. ...*
Doopliss: "I don't think a curse could defeat all three of us."
Lumis Dongthar: "If it is enough to escape, then it is victory enough for the escapee."
Aribar: .oO(I hope you're as good a curser as I think you are, Zio... ) "I'm going to give you two choices... Heh. How ironic... Either you let me go back to the Questers, or be highly disappointed."
Shadow Aribar: "I refuse!"
Doopliss: "...Why don't we make a deal?"
Aribar: "Nope... Either one or the other."
Doopliss: "... It is up to you, Lumis."
Lumis Dongthar gets up from his throne and approaches the top of the stairs. "It will not matter in the end. Let us hear the victim's proposition."
Doopliss: "Ummm... I guess you'll have to leave us highly disappointed?"
Lumis Dongthar: "Speak now."
Aribar: "You've left me no choice... Now, goodbye! Zio, I hope you didn't fool me... In the near future..."
Lumis Dongthar starts to charge up energy and smiles with a sadistic smile.
Aribar: "...The Questers will..."
Metal Man (GM): A strong power begins to glow around Aribar.
Shadow Aribar: "Zio's magic! But... how?"
Aribar: "...The Questers will face something unbeatable..."
Metal Man (GM): The energy suddenly turns red. A HUGE explosion takes place ..When the dust clears, Aribar is nothing but a pile of dust.
Lumis Dongthar fires his purple energy around the room to erase the dust particles from the air. "Rest assured, he's not here."
Aribar has done what he meant to do: Disappoint them... He sacrificed himself to rid his enemies the joy of killing him and using him... He killed himself with Zio's curse.
Shadow Aribar: "Sir! The release of Dark magic has triggered the attention of both Nova and Ivan... "
Lumis Dongthar goes back to sitting in his throne.
Doopliss: "...Nova is beginning to key together the way to open a mirror warp."
Metal Man (GM): A mirror in the room begins cracking.
Lumis Dongthar: "We can easily turn them away."
Metal Man (GM): The mirror... explodes. An old man, a hologram, walks in.
Nova: "Greetings, enemies of the planet. It has come to my attention that you have been destroying my protectors. You, and this place, are to be terminated."
Metal Man (GM): He points a finger at Lumis.
Nova: "You are to be destroyed."
Lumis Dongthar: "And you are an uninvited guest." *He points back and sends a spiraling wave of energy at the old man. It encircles him in a dome and sends him out of the Lumis's realm.*
Metal Man (GM): http://www.vgmusic.com/music/console/nintendo/snes/Version_2_Marx.mid The wave hits him. He disappears. Another mirror breaks. He comes out again.
Nova: "You are to be destroyed. Surrender."
Metal Man (GM): He glows, and fires a HUGE yellow beam at Lumis.
Doopliss: "What IS that?"
Metal Man (GM): Lumis is hit with a huge Yellow beam that deals 1000% damage.
Lumis Dongthar is now smeared. "I see."
Metal Man (GM): He then turns to Doopliss.
Metal Man (GM): A ton of bombs fly at Doopliss.
Lumis Dongthar: "Shadow, Doopliss, it's time to join forces... and seal out this pest."
Metal Man (GM): A large amount of explosions bury Doopliss under rubble. Nothing is happening to Deloth's mirror.
Lumis Dongthar: "Allow me to borrow your power and seal off the portals!"
Nova: "You are to be logged." *He scans Lumis... getting Lumis's trademark ability in the process.*
Shadow Aribar: "I shall assist you... quickly! Seal him out!"
Lumis Dongthar begins charging the combined powers. He sends black, not purple, waves at all the mirrors, the old man, and Aribar's dust... the dust and old man are then sent through the mirrors... then the mirrors all shrink to the point of non-existence in this realm.
Shadow Aribar: *He quickly destroys the mirrors. One last mirror almost breaks open, but is broken before it can be broken in to.*
Lumis Dongthar taps into the depths... and this action begins to exhaust him and shadow aribar and doopliss.
Metal Man (GM): They're... barely sealed away. The Old Man's INT is impossibly powerful.
Lumis Dongthar: "Just... a little more."
Nova: "You... cannot... run... forever..."
Lumis Dongthar: "Leave... Noooooowwww!"
Metal Man (GM): His hologram hits a wall by Lumis with a deathray before disappearing with Aribar's dust completely ...The room is pretty much wrecked, but thanks to the use of all three of their powers, you barely overpowered the machine. Doopliss climbs out of the rubble.
Doopliss: "...Well... at least... Aribar... is dead."
Lumis Dongthar: "...He isn't."
Doopliss: "...Ugh." *He falls forward.*
Shadow Aribar: "...Like... I said... we have very powerful enemies. Ivan has... the relics."
Lumis Dongthar: "...The... mirror portals are closed."
Shadow Aribar: "Yes."
Lumis Dongthar: "For now... it will be a while before we can travel to that plane again. But the second step... is already under way."
Metal Man (GM): *And so, we pause on the now semi-ruined lair of Lumis. But where did Aribar's ashes and Nova go?* Aribar and Nova are warped back to... Nova's base in the north. The old man is now looking over Aribar's ashes, tsking.
Nova: "If he had held over for a bit more, I could have saved him in one piece... ...How ironic... Locos is a rock, and he... is dust. ...And that evil man has slightly more power then I. I must help them... but how? I only have massive destructive power with only my power generator... That's it! They will have to save my next module... then I can heal them. ...I just hope those evil men do not attack again. Only since Kirby fought me have I felt such power. And even then, I was only using a bit of power... So if this is full power, I will need Ivan's help." *Opens a comms thing* "Dr. Ivan Robotnik. Respond."
Nova: "I have detected an unknown threat to Nintendus."
Ivan: "As have I."
Nova: "We must ally ourselves to destroy them."
Metal Man (GM): *A lot of endless babble later.*
Nova: "Okay, then. We shall do as planned."
Metal Man (GM): *Aribar's ashes are warped back to HQ... with a note.* The note is in the lobby. With Aribar's... red-colored dust.
Deloth heads back to HQ and sees the pile of dust "What the heck?" *He picks up the note and reads it.*
Wolfman is right now in his room; VG is with him if that helps.
Metal Man (GM): The note says... 'Hello, Quester, Good Guy, or Wolfman. I have rescued Aribar from 3 bad men. I also hit one of the bad men with a deathray. Aribar exploded himself. Aribar cannot be healed... until another of my modules are recovered. Signed: Planet Protector, Nova.'
Deloth: "Ari's dead..."
Metal Man (GM): 'PS: That match was great. Too bad it wound up with Aribar exploding.'
Deloth crumples to the floor and passes out.
Metal Man walks over... "...Deloth really gets hyped up over Red Koolaid." *He takes the jar and... takes it to the kitchen.* "...Wow. This koolaid powder has teeth in it."
Wolfman chooses to show up now.
Metal Man: "...Shut up, Phantom. I don't want your gun. I want red koolaid."
Deloth: "Ow..." *He gets up slowly.*
Phantom: "...No. I know you don't want my gun. You threw a rock at me the last time I did that... ...But... that's ARIBAR... you doofus!"
Wolfman: "...then what do you want Phantom?"
Deloth: "Hey, where'd the ash go?"
Metal Man: "...You just want me to get sick, don't you? Aribar is gone. Stop moping over him. ...Because I already made a shrine to him."
Deloth overhears Metal "Uh-oh."
Phantom: "...You numbskull! That thing has teeth in it. Do you want to drink teeth?"
Metal Man: "...Maybe it's a new type of Koolaid."
Deloth runs into the kitchen "Metal, wait!"
Metal Man: "What?"
Wolfman: "Guys, leave Aribar's ashes alone."
VG is in R&R right now.
Metal Man is about to dump sugar into the red dust.
Deloth: *Gasp gasp* "Note came with that." *He gives the note to Metal* "Read."
Metal Man reads it. "...That would explain the sword pieces, badges, and teeth in there. Wait! Maybe we can improve Aribar by adding stuff to him!"
Phantom: "..." *Disappears.*
Deloth: "No, no no."
Metal Man: "I wonder what would happen if I added sugar to him?"
Wolfman catches up to Metal.
Deloth grabs the jar.
Metal Man: "Would he be sweeter?"
Wolfman: "Metal, you don't get it do you."
Metal Man (GM): Deloth grabs it.
Deloth: "GIVE ME THAT! You do not add sugar to dead friends."
Metal Man: "...You do in my realm. You sprinkle sugar over their grave. Then you dance the hokey-pokey."
Wolfman: "...Metal, this isn't his grave. Even if it is, do NOT contaminate the ash!"
Metal Man: "...Awww... oh well. Maybe I can dig up Phantom's grave."
Wolfman: "This isn't your realm anymore."
Deloth: "Are we in your realm? No. So we should not add sugar."
Phantom: "...Too bad Zero blew up my remains..."
Metal Man: "Okay then... Uhhhh... his teeth look nice."
Wolfman: "Deloth, properly store Aribar's... stuff. And... I'm sorry for what happened."
Deloth takes the jar up to his room and puts it on his desk.
Metal Man: "We could have used it to start a cool Ant Farm..."
Wolfman: "SIMBER, please take Metal to his room... he needs a nap."
Metal Man: "...Who am I kidding. Being silly in a time of crisis! SIMBER. Give Wolfman a wet willy."
SIMBER: "..." *Runs into a wall.*
Metal Man: "...Anyway. Now that I know that's not Koolaid..."
Wolfman: *Huh?* "SIMBER, you okay?"
Metal Man goes into a cabinet and gets some Koolaid.
SIMBER: "Conflicting orders. Unable to do either thing."
Charles Magellean toils to nearby with his toad.
SIMBER: "...And Metal doesn't have a bed..."
Metal Man starts making Koolaid.
Wolfman: "New orders from Administrative Wolfman. Let Metal make his Koolaid, then then take him and the drink to wherever he actually sleeps."
Metal Man aces the check! Obtains Item: Red Koolaid.
Charles Magellean: "I couldn't help but hear from my dex... that Ari's gone dustul."
Wolfman: "He did."
Metal Man: "He did?" *Holds up the Red Koolaid to Locos* "He makes some tasty Koolaid... ...Just kidding!"
Wolfman: "SIMBER, do that transport now please."
SIMBER: "Unable to do so. Metal Man has ordered me to sing the YMCA song. Y... M... CA..." *Etc.*
Wolfman: "What level is Metal Man?"
SIMBER: "...It says '999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999.9.'"
Metal Man: "Oh yeah. Well, you know, 9s are cheaper than infinity signs."
Wolfman: "...User Level SIMBER? Administrator, user, etc..."
SIMBER: "Ultimate Administrator of Supreme Power. A self-titled rank."
Charles Magellean: "Ah yes, I would like to show you something that Mr. G & W gave me."
Metal Man: "Oh?" *He sips some koolaid.*
Wolfman: "I never granted him that. How did he give himself that?"
Charles Magellean: *The toad shows them the rubix cube.*
SIMBER: "Well... the computers on the stadium said so... and I had to comply or... be turned into an orange. Weird."
Charles Magellean: "I... would like to demonstrate what it can do."
Metal Man: "Ahhh! My lost Rubix cube. ...It does something? I remember gluing my rubix cube shut."
Wolfman: "...SIMBER, give me a log of everything that happened in relation to that event, and then get yourself diagnosed."
Charles Magellean: "Excuse me, but this is mine now."
Charles Magellean: "I bought it fair and cubical."
Wolfman: "...give it to me through email that is."
Metal Man: "Whatever. So, what does it do?"
Charles Magellean: "...Give to me an enemy and I may be able to demonstrate its power."
Metal Man (GM): *Appear.*
Charles Magellean: "But no bees, wasps, etc."
Eggman: "You raaaaaaaang?"
Charles Magellean: "I have a phobia of those."
Eggman: "I am combat dummy 2.0 Attack me!"
Charles Magellean: "Now then, the next thing we need is... to somehow unlock its power."
Metal Man: "Oh, don't mind that it's Eggman. I made a dummy based off of Bob's program."
Charles Magellean: "Right, right."
Metal Man drinks the Koolaid and becomes hyper!
Charles Magellean commands his toad to turn the cube once.
Metal Man (GM): The Toad turns it once. It starts glowing.
Metal Man: "...That isn't my rubix cube!"
Deloth heads back to the others "Ooh, glowy..."
Metal Man (GM): But it doesn't do anything yet.
Charles Magellean commands it to turn it back.
Metal Man (GM): The Toad turns it back. It stops glowing.
Charles Magellean: "Okay, what we need to do is make a battle time."
Metal Sonic: *Walks in* "Battle time? I just couldn't miss hearing that."
Charles Magellean: *BATTLE TIME.*
Deloth: "I thought you blew up, tin man."
Metal Sonic: "I thought you blew up, rubber man."
Metal Man (GM): *B Attttle tiemeeeeeEEEMeaiaa.*
Charles Magellean: *Screen wabbles, and stoned locos *(make no jokes)*, his toad that holds his latest item, and the dummy...*"
Deloth: *MMX battle theme.*
Metal Man is off on the sidelines, running around 'cause he's hyper.
Deloth: *MMX:CM battle theme.*
Metal Man: "Koolaid... Koolaid... Rrarrarararraaaaaaaaaah."
Charles Magellean: "Now, then..."
Metal Man (GM): Deloth and Digi are at the HQ.
Charles Magellean commands the toad to turn the cube once.
Metal Man (GM): The cube is turned once.
Charles Magellean commands the toad to turn the cube a second time.
Metal Man (GM): It is turned again... the glowing begins to spark. Lines fly out to everybody nearby, and then go back into the cube. The cube floats up and begins spinning wildly.
Metal Man: "Woah! Cube going crazy!"
Metal Man (GM): Then it floats over to the dummy, and weird disco music starts playing. The cube begins fading in and out, hitting the dummy 1 time for everybody nearby. Then it floats back, and lands in the Toad's hands, reset to where it was. again. The dummy obviously doesn't fight.
Charles Magellean: "How much damage did the dummy take?"
SIMBER: "He took 10% damage for each person nearby."
SIMBER: "About 60%... this place is crowded."
Digifanatic: "I dunno what's going on..."
SIMBER: "That included the dummy himself. There are several different modes indicated."
Deloth: "Can I see it?"
Charles Magellean: "Perhaps a bit later Del... I need to experiment before going out to the real battlefield." *He takes this fight to a holo-area ...in a grass setting. So a few minutes later, only dummy and locos/toad (who count as one)...are in battle.*
Toad: "Shall I do the same thing again?"
Charles Magellean: "Aye." *He commands the toad to turn it once.*
Metal Man (GM): It is turned once, and glows.
Charles Magellean commands the toad to turn it again.
Metal Man (GM): It is turned again, and it does a different attack. It begins floating. And spinning. A box forms around the entire arena. All colors are inverted.
Charles Magellean looks puzzled.
Smash Dex: "The cube has inverted the weaknesses and strengths of elements."
Charles Magellean: "Amazing..." *He adds in 2 additional dummies: one as an ally, and one as another enemy.*
Metal Man (GM): It is done.
Charles Magellean summons the toad to turn it twice.
Metal Man (GM): It is turned twice again. The cube floats up, and moves in between the two sides. A large flash occurs. A large mirror now divides the two sides, reflecting all attacks and spells back at the uses of those for 1 round.
Charles Magellean: "Remarkable... this is truly an amazing item. End simulation."
Metal Man (GM): The simulation ends.
Charles Magellean asks in his dex for deloth to come in.
Deloth walks over to the holo roon "You rang?"
Charles Magellean: "You may borrow this cube... it's remarkable. Already, it did damage per person nearby, inverted the weaknesses and strengths of the elements, and divided the opposing sides to reflect all attacks back at the user! Who knows what other kinds of ...things it can do. To activate it, you need to turn it a couple times."
Deloth takes the cube "Thanks."
Charles Magellean: "Be sure to bring it back after you're done though."
Deloth: "I think I'll try it." *He steps inside the holo room and generates a goomba in a cage He turns the cube twice.*
Metal Man (GM): The cube glows.
Deloth: "What the heck."
Metal Man (GM): The Goomba in the cage is inverted in color... and is now confused.
Deloth: "Cool..." *He generates another normal Goomba and turns and twists the cube again.*
Metal Man (GM): This time, it splits the Goomba in two halves. Each with half HP and half everything. You notice something... every time it attacks, it's something different.
Deloth: "Hmm, interesting." *He heads out of the holo room and gives the cube back to Locos* "This is neat. It does a different attack every time."
Digifanatic: *Meanwhile, in R&R, Digi is watching the Toad Town News...* "Please... nothing about Ari... nothing about Ari..."
News Anchor: "Toad Town has been safe from attacks for a year and several weeks now, thanks to Ivan's tip-top defenses."
Digifanatic: "Ah, phew... That's good news..."
News Anchor: "In the news today, an evil organization has been identified. Made up of Doopliss, Shadow Aribar, and a mysterious evil man, they seem up to no good."
Digifanatic: *Sigh* "I knew it was coming..."
News Anchor: "Luckily, Nova sealed them off with his power."
Digifanatic: "Thank you Garrick..."
News Anchor: "It is said that Nintopia is 100% safe from evil as long as Nova and Ivan are in power."
News Anchor: "And now... we report on stories nobody cares about!"
Digifanatic: "Well then..." *He shuts off the TV. "I need to get back to G&W." *He heads back towards G&W's place.
Metal Man (GM): GW is there, sitting about.
Digifanatic walks up to the desk and sets his fighting gloves on it. "Excuse me?"
Mr. Game and Watch: "What do you want?"
Digifanatic: "I'd like an upgrade or two with these. Uh... first of all, I'd like my Super Mario Punch upgraded with the Make Invisible upgrade."
Mr. Game and Watch: "I'm sorry, but I only upgrade weapons."
Digifanatic: "...Those gloves are my weapon... kinda."
Mr. Game and Watch: "How many upgrades have they had already?"
Digifanatic: "Uhh... four. I used Light on all four of my punch attacks. Yeah, if I remember correctly, I still have six."
Mr. Game and Watch: "...@_@."
Digifanatic: "I'm sorry if I've confused you."
