Super Smash Quest - Story - Chapter 142: Battle for Doughnut City
Date: 4:40:39 PM, February 13th, 2005.
Deloth sweats as silently as possible.
Gibby: "Uhh... Metal, go get the cart."
Metal Man (GM): One on the left, one on the middle, one on the right.
Metal Man: "...Oh. Right."
Metal Man (GM): Spyke: You passed out while walking with the group to the castle.
Charles Magellean: .oO(Gibby has officially sabotaged this mission by identifying Metal.)
Metal Man (GM): You're now awake in a laundry room... your clothes were bleached clean.
Deloth presses himself against the washer and strains to listen in.
Thug: "Wait... Metal? As in... Metal Man?"
Garrick Fy`aar: "...Metal Man, are you kidding me?"
Metal Man (GM): Spyke: You're next to Deloth... who is sitting on your arm.
Garrick Fy`aar gives the thug a look.
Deloth presses a hand against Spyke's mouth.
Metal Man: "Uhhh... I look like him, but certain things are strange... like... resemblances."
Wolfman doesn't see a Metal Man... perhaps a Metal Boy.
Metal Man goes to the middle cart.
Gibby: "No... Metal's a nick name."
Charles Magellean looks to the thug, and shakes his head.
Spyke feels a hand over his mouth as his consciousness returns... He gets the hint...
Metal Man: "You sure this is the right cart, Chewy?" *He is talking to... Wolfman. XD*
Gibby: "We call him that for kicks. We all have nick names."
Aribar: .oO(This is becoming too much for me bear.)
Deloth looks very concerned and is sweating as he hides.
Wolfman "communicates" no in as best of a chewy imitation as he can.
Thug: "...Whatever. You scared me there for a moment. Our greatest enemies doing our laundry..."
Wolfman "communicates" the one on the....
Thug: "...Woah! It's chewy from Star Bars! Can I have your autograph?"
Gibby: "That'd be weird."
Wolfman tries to communicate 'have a pen and paper?'
Metal Man takes the left cart and dumps it into the machine. It works normally.
Metal Man (GM): The thug gives Wolfman a pen and paper.
Wolfman "signs" the autograph with Chewy in messy handwriting... he's known for blasting people, not giving autographs.
Metal Man (GM): Spyke et Deloth: The washing machine you're next to is now washing clothes loudly.
Charles Magellean coughs from time to time still.
Metal Man (GM): The thug nods and leaves.
Wolfman gives the paper to them.
Thug: "I gotta go. There's some... intruders in level 1 laundry room."
Metal Man (GM): The Thug walks away.
Deloth peeks over the top of the machine, not hearing the thug.
Metal Man (GM): With the paper. Deloth: You see the group.
Deloth: *Whispering* "Pssst! Guys!"
Metal Man: "Now then... let's see which cart is ours..."
Metal Man opens up the middle one, which he was about to move. It has all the weapons and stuff. "Whew."
Aribar waits until the thug is gone... "I don't know how much more of this I can take..."
Deloth: *Whispering* "I'm here."
Metal Man: "Well, we have a choice, now."
Gibby: "Sorry about that, guys. It slipped."
Wolfman breathes a sigh of relief.
VG gets a quick chuckle in... Wolfman sure makes a good Chewy.
Metal Man: "Try to get a laundry cart into places where no laundry cart belongs... Or blast our way down."
Deloth creeps out from behind the washing machine.
Metal Man: "The first option is worth more money."
Deloth: "Which one's ours?!"
Spyke whispers to Deloth, provided he removed his hand from Spyke's mouth. "What happened?"
Garrick Fy`aar: "I say we try to get down incognito. Further we get without fighting, the better."
VG is neutral.
Charles Magellean: "We do the first choice. Less messy, and more money."
Wolfman doesn't care either way.
Metal Man (GM): Spyke is there, too... he looks super-clean. Somehow, he got washed.
Charles Magellean: "A covert mission requires stealth unto the point of being caught."
Deloth gets back into the middle cart.
Garrick Fy`aar: "Locos is right... for once... let's get to it."
Aribar: "...I prefer the latter. I can't stand acting like a common thief..."
Metal Man: "I'll go with Locos."
Deloth: *Not whispering, but still not loud* "I vote for covert ops."
Gibby: "I'm with the sneaking."
Wolfman: *Hushed* "You are outvoted Ari."
Charles Magellean: "Being a spy has nothing to do with being a thief, Ari."
Spyke: "I vote for... the majority..." *He whispers*
Metal Man: "Okay then... Now then... we must convince the guards to move the laundry card all the way to the bottom floor. So... let's get to work." *He begins walking, with the cart, again, to the elevator.*
Wolfman and VG both nod... how are we going to pull this off?
Deloth nods and hides in the cart.
Garrick Fy`aar heads onward as well.
VG and Wolfman follow Metal to the elevator.
Charles Magellean: "And at the same time try do something to get us the 10,000 as well." *He nudges Ari and walks back to the elevator.*
Aribar trudges to the elevator. If there are no guards/thugs about he mumbles, "I am not accepting a single coin from this dirty mission..."
Spyke follows with a shrug.
Metal Man (GM): At the elevator, another Thug is there.
Gibby: "More for us then..."
Thug: "Uhhh... yes... you want to go up?"
Metal Man: "...Uhh... Mr. McDonald knows." *Points at Garrick.*
Thug: "McDonald? Wow... what a strange name."
Wolfman wonders if he should go Chewy again... okay, maybe not.
Charles Magellean has his lips moving, resisting a laugh.
Thug: "So then. What are you going to do with this load of clean laundry?"
Garrick Fy`aar looks at Metal, then looks back to the Thug. "Kyle McDonald. shrug Anyway, we want to head down. Some guys got hit with a gas leak down there, we're being sent to give them a fresh change and get the dirty stuff outta there."
Aribar just stares at a wall mumbling below his breath, "Don't do anything you'll regret later... Don't do anything you'll regret later..."
Garrick Fy`aar also says this with a bit of a Irish accent.
Thug: "A gas leak? How strange... oh well. It goes with your name. Just... don't touch anything."
Garrick Fy`aar: "Yes sir, wouldn't dream of it."
Thug: "We've had 5 attempts to disabled the bomb."
Garrick Fy`aar looks at him shocked.
Metal Man (GM): He motions for you to get aboard the elevator.
Wolfman wonders what he means by bomb... he says nothing though; he and VG enter.
Garrick Fy`aar keeps that shocked look while he steps onto the elevator.
Gibby walks on.
Thug: "Oh... do you have your ID on you?"
Aribar does so...
Garrick Fy`aar hesitates, then reaches into his pocket, hoping to god that Mewtwo thought of everything...
Metal Man (GM): Garrick pulls out a fork. The Thug cracks up...
Thug: "...This fork is not an ID, sir... it's an eating utensil. Please take out your real ID."
Garrick Fy`aar: "Yes, right..." *He reaches into his other pocket.. .oO(Please please please please...)*
Metal Man (GM): Garrick: You feel a card in there. You don't know what it is.
Garrick Fy`aar pulls it out...
Metal Man (GM): Wolfman: 5 seconds to try to do anything to stop or distract somebody. 5. 4. 3.
Wolfman goes for the chewy imitation "voice." *He tries to say "take us down" in chewy-speak.*
Metal Man (GM): The Thug turns around to you while Garrick pulls out his Quester ID.
Garrick Fy`aar: "!!!" *Puts THAT away.*
Thug: "...Wow... I didn't know movie stars did laundry..."
Wolfman "chewy-speaks" yes.
Gibby: "Garrick, don't you remember? You had to get your ID card upgraded. You won't get it back for at least a week."
Thug: "Well, I can certainly take your word for it."
Garrick Fy`aar gives Gibby a look...
Wolfman is a little shy off-camera.
Thug: "...Ohhhh... well then, professor Tibbins, of COURSE you're allowed down there. Down we go."
Charles Magellean facepalms.
Gibby: "Err... right."
Metal Man (GM): The elevator goes down. You reach the bottom.
Thug: "The rest of you, go ahead. I must escort Professor Tibbins to his lab."
Wolfman thanks the thug in chewy-speak.
Deloth: *Thinking* "Wait, Professor Tibbins?"
Thug: "This way." *He walks towards the lab, making sure Gibby follows.*
Metal Man only heard that, remember.
Metal Man looks at the crate for a second, leans on it, but doesn't look any different.
Spyke is following silently as well.
Metal Man (GM): Spyke: Following Gibby or the others?
VG: .oO(Perhaps I should have stayed home today)
Charles Magellean pulls back Spyke...
Wolfman and VG are on Metal's side here.
Charles Magellean: *Whispers* "Spyke... only Gibby is going there... you stay with us."
Metal Man walks ahead. Spyke is silently pulled aback and explained to by Locos.
Metal Man (GM): Gibby: You're escorted into a lab.
Garrick Fy`aar walks with Metal as well.
Thug: "There you go, Tibbins. Make sure to make some great new invention soon."
Gibby: .oO(I am Prof. Tibbins... I am Prof. Tibbins... I am Prof. Tibbins...)
Metal Man (GM): The Thug walks off, locking Gibby into the lab.
Gibby: "Oh I will. Thank you very much."
Metal Man (GM): Gibby: This lab... is a maze of buttons.
Charles Magellean follows along with the others.
Metal Man (GM): There's also... another Kirby in there... reading a book.
Gibby: "Bu-bu-bu-bu-bu-bu-BUTTONS!" *He gets twitchy.*
???: "Buttons? Where? I never knew my cat yelled out own name..."
Gibby: "Uhh... no, it's just me... Prof. Tibbins."
Professor Tibbins: "But I'm Professor Tibbins! Who are you?"
Gibby: "I'M Professor Tibbins! WHO are YOU?"
Professor Tibbins: "..." *Presses a red button.*
PA: "INTRUDER IN LAB FOUR! INTRUDER IN LAB FOUR!" "ALL GUARDS TO THEIR STATIONS!"
Charles Magellean checks his watch.
PA: "PREPARE TO DESTROY GRAVITY REACTOR!"
Gibby: .oO(Think... think... think...)
Charles Magellean: "...Thirty seconds. That's a new record for Gibby."
Garrick Fy`aar glances to Metal.
Wolfman chewy-speaks "what do we do?"
Aribar: "...Can we kill people now?"
Metal Man: "...We must urgently go to the reactor room to deliver the laundry."
Charles Magellean: "We need to either run and run and explain quickly or brush off people."
Metal Man continues going, unnoticed by people running around.
Charles Magellean: "...I like the first one."
Garrick Fy`aar sighs and walks onward with Metal, at his pace.
Charles Magellean follows him quickly.
Wolf Chewy follows Metal, "chewy-ing" as needed.
Spyke: "... Whatever we decide, do it fast." *He follows.*
Metal Man: "Let's continue."
Gibby attempts to knock the prof. out.
VG follows the others.
Metal Man (GM): *SMACK* He's knocked out... but... which button to press? There's also a red cable in the corner.
Metal Man reaches a large door.
Gibby looks at the prof to see if he's wearing anything significant.
Metal Man: "...This is locked."
Charles Magellean: "He's just gonna press a button... I just know he's gonna press one."
Metal Man (GM): The prof. is wearing a white top hat.
Gibby grabs the hat, and wears it.
Wolf Chewy: *Chewy-speak* "Want me to bash it down?"
PA: "40 minutes until melt-down."
Metal Man: "Eh... unable to do that. It's tightly locked."
Gibby goes to the wire... but those buttons...
Aribar: "What about a Terrorbolt?"
Metal Man (GM): Gibby: The wire hangs there, and the buttons are flashing.
Wolf Chewy: *Chewy-speak* *Pouts.*
Metal Man: "...We'd be spotted."
Gibby: "Must... cut... wire..."
Aribar: "Either we get spotted or we asplode..."
Garrick Fy`aar: "It's up to Gibby..."
Metal Man (GM): The buttons are wildly flashing and the gauges on them are starting to spark.
Gibby fights off the buttons demons, and tries cutting the wire.
Metal Man (GM): The wire is cut. The door opens.
Charles Magellean: "We are sticking to the mission."
Garrick Fy`aar: "...told you."
Wolf Chewy: *Chewy-speak* "Calm down."
Gibby sighs in relief.
PA: "CORE SECURITY DISABLED."
Charles Magellean walks forward in a fast pace.
Metal Man (GM): Gibby: You hear people trying to bust down the door.
Aribar: "This entire mission feels like a sin... Let's continue..." *The elf starts towards the door.*
Metal Man runs in.
Wolf Chewy: *Chewy-speak* "Okay, maybe not." *He and VG follow Metal.*
Garrick Fy`aar goes forward as well, running.
Spyke runs after them.
Metal Man (GM): While running... this is a crowded hallway. Everyone is running AWAY from the reactor. They don't notice you, though.
Gibby mimics Tibble's voice. "HURRY! The intruder's in here."
Random people: "AHHHHH!!!! FLEE!!!"
Charles Magellean: "Defend against the rampage."
Thug: "Oh! You have things under control? Good."
Gibby: "I was able to knock him out before he could attack."
Metal Man (GM): The group reaches the inside of the reactor.
Thug: "Double good! See you later. We must defend the place!"
VG gets a look at this reactor.
Metal Man (GM): Gibby: You see yet MORE buttons.
Deloth: "We is here, but now what?!"
Gibby: "Good luck."
Metal Man (GM): *Pause on the group at the reactor.*
Wolf Chewy: *Chewy-speak* "We wait."
Metal Man (GM): Gibby: You see a variety of security heading towards the reactor.
Charles Magellean: "...Pray to lord that Gibby comes back." *Now we pause.*
Metal Man (GM): You have buttons that control a lot of things... Perhaps you want to stop them with the security? Or even deactivate the security alert...
Gibby looks for that button!
Metal Man (GM): Gibby: You find the button.
Gibby presses it. "Ahhh... that feels good..."
PA: "...Security alert canceled. All is fine. Reactor meltdown canceled."
Metal Man (GM): Now, all that Gibby has to do is go down to the reactor.
Gibby heads down to the reactor.
Metal Man (GM): You walk by various Thugs...
Thug: "Huh... you must have nailed the intruder for us. Good work... you're getting a promotion!"
Metal Man (GM): The Thug gives Gibby both an 'Any-pass' Keycard and 1000 coins.
Gibby is happy.
Thug: "Now then... back to work we go. Make sure to check the reactor."
Metal Man (GM): They go walking away, and Gibby gets to the reactor.
Gibby: "I will."
Metal Man (GM): *Back to normal music* AirBase.mid Everyone is at the module. It is shut down.
Gibby: "Well... that was interesting..."
Charles Magellean: "..." *He looks to gibby.*
Wolf Chewy: *Chewy-speaks* "What now?"
Garrick Fy`aar checks this room, cameras, men, anything.
Charles Magellean: *KER-SMACK.*
Gibby falls to the ground in pain.
Metal Man (GM): No cameras... no nothing. You walked right past all of the security measures.
Gibby: *x_x* "Ow... ow... ow... pain..."
Metal Man: "Now then. Let's fix the reactor."
Charles Magellean: "Next time a covert mission comes around... we will pay you to not come."
Metal Man: "This is where the charade ends..."
Metal Man: "Aribar. Climb up and reverse the cables."
Deloth stands up and gets out.
Garrick Fy`aar: "Right. Gear up, everyone."
Charles Magellean: "Pending when the next one will come."
Charles Magellean: "Oh finally!"
Metal Man puts on his badges and stuff.
Gibby grabs his gun, badges, and all that good stuff.
Metal Man: "We succeeded 100%... almost lost it there, but Gibby tricked them."
Deloth grabs his stuff from the cart and equips it, wielding his katana.
Aribar trudges towards the module but stops before switching the cables...
Deloth: "Kudos, Gibby."
Garrick Fy`aar also digs through the cart, his own gun and ammo carrier with badges now strapped around him.
Wolf Chewy and VG both get our stuff, but not before...
Spyke grabs his equipment as well and equips it all.
Charles Magellean rebuckles his gun belt, attaches the onyx sword, and attaches Last Request to the left of him.
Wolf Chewy: *Chewy-speak* "About darn time!"
Deloth: "You get a candy bar when we get back."
Gibby: "Don't thank me... I almost blew it... AGAIN!"
Charles Magellean: "Wolf, you can stop now."
Garrick Fy`aar tosses Ari his stuff "You okay, slick?"
Wolfman: "Thank you."
VG: "Hey, I found it funny."
Metal Man: "Well... we can just blow up anyone else we meet." *He sticks all the now useless clothes into the cart.* "Of course... we want to keep the cart."
Aribar: "How can we be sure that this thing isn't trapped? I'm sure this thing would have extra security devices with backup stuff..." *The elf puts his equipment on.*
VG gathers his item bag and two badges; Wolfman his three badges, still-empty sub-tank, beam saber, and howl buster.
Metal Man: "We walked right past that stuff."
Garrick Fy`aar: "We don't have a choice anyway. Let's just switch it back and get outta here."
Metal Man: "And... ...Gibby is impersonating a technician for the reactor."
Aribar: "Yeah, but surely there must be something else... Fine..."
Metal Man: "So we'd be allowed to do what we want."
Aribar goes to switch the cables...
Metal Man (GM): You get up, and switch them. Nova appears.
Charles Magellean: "One can just bet that Avon is around somewhere."
Nova: "Thank you for restoring power. All systems are go."
Garrick Fy`aar: "Any information you can give us, Nova?"
Nova: "...Just great..."
Metal Man (GM): You hear explosions far away.
Deloth turns to face the entrance.
Aribar: "Told you so!"
Deloth: "OH *Bleep*!"
Charles Magellean checks his watch.
Nova: "...The minute you switched it... Zio's armies started invading!"
Charles Magellean: "...Hmm... they're late."
Deloth: "We gotta get out of here!"
Garrick Fy`aar: "...doesn't matter. Let's bust through."
Wolfman: "I agree."
Nova: "...Whoever... the rebels in here are now on your side. They will assist you."
Garrick Fy`aar: "Sounds good. Let's go then."
VG: "That's good to know... except that we are still stuck fighting a huge army here!"
Charles Magellean: "Can't we just warp?"
VG is not used to this type of combat.
Nova: "We must save the city."
Metal Man (GM): The area is shaking. You hear explosions.
Spyke: "... Fun..."
Aribar unsheaths Moonlight... "A war? ... How do you expect us to fight in a war against Zio even with the Rebel's help?"
Nova: "You may go and start helping them, now. I have control down here."
Wolfman: "That's good to know Nova."
Nova: "Well... I don't know. I'll try to help."
Charles Magellean: "Can you rival medical skills of Dr. Mario?" *He coughs.*
Wolfman: "Alright Questers... let's go to the war."
Deloth: "This is gonna get messy. Thanks, Nova."
Deloth whips his katana around.
Charles Magellean: "Cause... I'm poisoned."
Gibby pulls out the gun.
Aribar: "Locos, would an Able Juice help you?"
Spyke stands with his pistol pointed upwards, next to his ear. He looks off to the side somewhere.
Charles Magellean: "No. It's an eccentric poison. Normal stuff cannot cure it."
VG adjusts his hat, and makes sure it stays on right.
Nova: "Why, yes. I've healed you 100% before..."
Charles Magellean: "Usually only Dr. Mario can cure it, but Nova might be able to."
Nova: *He glows, several runes surround Locos. A powerful holy energy eliminates the poison.*
Wolfman waits for this whole cure thing to get done... jeez, aren't we supposed to be in a battle right now?
Charles Magellean feels better!
Aribar sighs... "Well, let's get on with this meaningless bloodshed..." The elf walks out of the room and towards the elevator.
Garrick Fy`aar is already on the move out. He slams in a fresh clip on number 1 rounds, cocking it and heading out of the generator room.
Metal Man (GM): Now, you can begin going back up.
Charles Magellean pulls out his backpocket rubix cube.
Deloth: "Here we gooooo!"
Charles Magellean charges to victory over the evil ones.
Metal Man (GM): The area is completely empty... the elevator is there for the using.
Deloth charges out the door.
Wolfman and VG follow the others, ready for battle.
Spyke follows, pistol in hand.
Wolfman chewy-speaks howls towards battle.
Garrick Fy`aar calls the elevator and steps inside.
Gibby does so.
Charles Magellean literally jumps in.
Computer: "Force fields are at 10% power."
VG and Wolfman get in the elevator.
Metal Man (GM): The elevator starts going up, right after the rest jump aboard.
VG: "Force fields?"
Charles Magellean: "GottagetinbattlecauseI'mhyperforan'itchin'forone."
Deloth steps into the elevator.
Charles Magellean twists his rubix cube once.
VG does a quick inventory check... ah; he does have them.
Metal Man (GM): You reach the lobby ..Waluigi is there. You see a disguise, discarded on the ground.
Garrick Fy`aar heads out, looking to see the evil plumber.
Deloth: "OUTTA OUR WAY!"
Waluigi: "Hello, Questers. You came at just the right time to help us."
Garrick Fy`aar: "Calm down, Del."
Charles Magellean: "We'll help, just hurry!"
Aribar: "...I thought I killed you."
Wolfman: "Help you guys? What side are you on?"
Waluigi: "...Killed me? I don't remember seeing you."
Garrick Fy`aar: "Doesn't matter. Where are the front lines?"
Waluigi: "Normally, I'd fight you, but..."
Metal Man (GM): Waluigi walks to the window and points outside.
Garrick Fy`aar glances outside the window.
Deloth looks out the window.
Metal Man (GM): Several ships and entire armies of Space Pirates, sligs, and Slogs are attacking.
Wolfman gets a look...
Aribar: "...Why do I have the feeling we're doomed? ... I don't want to look..."
Charles Magellean: "I'djumpoutofthewindowrightnowbutIhaveatleastsomecomposureinmybody!"
Wolfman: "...looks like they are throwing the whole Oddworld at us."
Waluigi: "...We only have one chance to repel them..."
Waluigi: "We have your car here."
Deloth: "Oh, *Bleep* kuso kuso..."
Charles Magellean: "...NO."
Waluigi: "You must drive through that to our emergency alert tower."
VG: "So we can't just attack yet?"
Metal Man gets an evil grin on his face.
Waluigi: "You will be fighting inside the tower."
Garrick Fy`aar: "Sounds like Metal's cup of tea."
Gibby: "Ooooh no... not again!"
Deloth: "Oooohhhh, no..."
Charles Magellean points the Last Request to Metal's head.
Metal Man: "...Hey! Watch where you point that!"
VG: "I call shotgun!"
Charles Magellean: "I swear... if you even mention that you'll drive..."
Aribar: "I am not getting in a vehicle with Metal again!"
Spyke: "I'd be afraid to drive... Aribar, you drive."
Charles Magellean: "I will unload this right into your skull."
Garrick Fy`aar: "Shut up, Locos. Waluigi, lead the way."
Metal Man: "...Okay... Gibby can drive."
Charles Magellean aims it at Garrick.
Wolfman: "I'll take the seat behind VG."
Gibby: "Wait... I can't even reach the pedals..."
Charles Magellean: "You want to try as well?"
Metal Man: "Shhhh!"
Garrick Fy`aar: "Fine, I'LL drive. Let's jus go."
Metal Man: "I have... special pedals."
Wolfman and VG eventually get in the car.
Charles Magellean: "Then Garrick drives."
Digifanatic: "Eh, alright..."
Metal Man: "Let me first press this button."
Gibby: "Well looks like Garrick's going for it."
Metal Man presses a blue button.
Spyke sits in the same seat as last time, or at least tries.
Metal Man (GM): The trunk... transforms.
Aribar follows the others to the car...
Digifanatic gets in the car.
Metal Man (GM): The two people without a seat may sit in it... it has twin laser cannons on it.
Charles Magellean follows and gets into the car.
Garrick Fy`aar gets into the driver's seat. "Metal, pull the roof down."
Aribar attempts to get into a normal seat.
Deloth gets in the car.
VG notes the laser cannons... tempting... "Need someone to man the cannons Metal?"
Metal Man: "Sure."
Wolfman: "You're a little short; I'm better for them I'd think."
Metal Man gets into the shotgun seat.
Garrick Fy`aar: "Just get into the car! Metal, retract the roof."
Metal Man: "Now then. You must be careful when you drive. ...Retract the roof? Why?"
Wolfman goes to the laser seat; Metal is NOT in shotgun.
Metal Man: "They could shoot us without it!"
Garrick Fy`aar: "Gotta give Ari room to fire."
Gibby goes on the other laser seat with Wolf.
Metal Man: "...Okay... but you better not ruin the upholstery!"
Garrick Fy`aar: "Spyke and Gibby too."
VG: "Just gun it will ya?"
Metal Man sighs and gets into another seat, and makes the roof open.
Garrick Fy`aar: "Give me the crash course while we go." *Garrick turns the key, flooring it*
Metal Man: "Okay... AHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!"
Wolfman straps in.
Charles Magellean buckles his seatbelt.
Metal Man (GM): Garrick drives the car into the moat.
VG straps in.
Gibby gets himself adjusted.
Metal Man (GM): ...It's now sinking...
Metal Man: "...Glub glub, glub. Glub."
Metal Man points at yellow button.
Digifanatic: "What the...?" *Blub blub blub blub.*
Garrick Fy`aar presses it.
VG: .oO(...I do not want to be in shotgun again...)
Metal Man (GM): You press the button. It goes into flight mode... ...There's a maze of buildings up ahead. It flies out of the water.
Garrick Fy`aar: "This is more like it." *He grabs the controls and takes off*
Metal Man: "...Next time, look before accelerating..."
Metal Man (GM): There's a brisk wind in the cockpit. The explosions can be seen clearly, now.
Garrick Fy`aar: "You have no room to talk, Mr. Waterfall."
Charles Magellean spits out water.
Spyke lets out a relaxed sigh. "Wind..."
VG rinses out his hat.
Metal Man (GM): A huge Space Pirate Frigate is hovering over the tower. There are two routes. 1. Fly low, dodging buildings and cars.
VG: "I'm ready to abandon car if need be..."
Metal Man (GM): 2. Fly high, and get attacked repeatedly.
Metal Man: "Just in time for Garrick's funeral? I mean... gun it, Spock!"
Charles Magellean: "Kyle, choose a path and stick with it!"
Garrick Fy`aar decides to head high. He does gun it, flooring it THIS time without an obstacle ahead.
Charles Magellean: "I meant down, not up, McDonald!"
Metal Man (GM): You're high up in the air.
VG gets his hat ready for Toad Shielding if need be... he has a feeling it might be needed.
CAC: "Danger! Danger! Incoming enemies!"
Garrick Fy`aar: "Be my eyes, people."
Metal Man (GM): The comms box turns on.
Gibby: "Oh great..."
Zio: "Hello, Questers. What a beautiful, rainy day it is."
Digifanatic: "Here we go..."
Zio: "What a shame it would be if... you encountered your doom."
Garrick Fy`aar turns it off right then and there.
Wolfman: *To gibby* "You said it."
Charles Magellean: "Turn it off! It's an infomercial!"
VG: "You are saying that like we will be encountering it."
Metal Man (GM): ...The space pirate frigate turns to you.
VG: "Have anything unique to say at least?"
Metal Man (GM): It opens up... 10 Space Pirates fly out. Flying ones. They open fire on the car.
Garrick Fy`aar: "I don't need Lord Bitcho screwing up my concentration. Unload on those things, people!"
Metal Man (GM): CAC AC: Garrick's INT mod + 10. 1 2 3 4 5 hits.
CAC: "Danger! Danger! Fire! Fire!"
Metal Man: "Let me drive, before we all get killed!"
VG: "Are you crazy?!?" *He tries to find a way to get his Toad Shield to work with this CAC.*
Charles Magellean: "If you drive, we will be killed!"
Metal Man: "Garrick's moving it all wrong!"
Garrick Fy`aar: "Fine, do it Metal." *He is thoroughly pissed, icly and oocly.*
Metal Man gets in the seat. CAC AC= 14 now.
Wolfman: "Gibby, ready to unload on these things?"
Metal Man (GM): There are TEN Space Pirates.
Gibby: "Hell yeah."
Metal Man (GM): Only ranged attacks will hit.
Garrick Fy`aar takes his spot in the shotgun seat and unloads on one of them with regular rounds.
Spyke: "... One... two... three..." *He counts the rest to himself * "Ten..."
VG finds his Guardian Acorn... he tries to activate it so that the entire car is protected.
Metal Man (GM): 1 2 3 4 5 6 hits.
Charles Magellean gets out his machine gun. He fires 6 bullets at 4 of the Space Pirates.
Metal Man (GM): hit miss hit.
Charles Magellean: *5% per hit.*
Wolfman gets lined up with one of these pirates... he locks on and fires as best as he can.
Charles Magellean holsters Last Request.
Metal Man (GM): Hit! 50% damage to the pirate. Spyke: You may shoot any one of 10 Space Pirates.
Garrick Fy`aar: "Thing has some punch."
Wolfman has another action; he does that again if possible.
Gibby fires a shot at another pirate.
Charles Magellean gets his miniguns at the ready.
Metal Man (GM): Gibby is counter-attacked. No counter attack.
Spyke draws his weapon and fires a single shot, followed by a vacuum trail, at The one Wolf just hit.
Metal Man (GM): Wolfman misses.
Wolfman doesn't use lucky yet.
Digifanatic uses 2 Thunderstorm strikes on a Pirate (for both actions)
VG wonders if he used his Guardian Acorn or not on the CAC.
Metal Man (GM): Hit miss. The acorn works on the CAC.
Digifanatic: *WONDER BADGE CRIT.*
Metal Man (GM): CRIT miss, then. I mean... CRIT, miss.
Wolfman: *DING* *Guardian Acorn* *For five rounds, the car takes half damage.*
Metal Man (GM): Spyke: Both missed.
VG is glad to see that his acorn worked... he has four more in stock just in case.
Metal Man (GM): That leaves Aribar. And Deloth.
Aribar: "Wind's fury!" *He fires two Wind Elemental Blasts at two different Space Pirates... 60% Wind each.*
Metal Man (GM): Two different ones are killed. Deloth: Take your turn... then I'll take mine... and we'll use the normal order. Wow... we've got 10 Questers at once.
Deloth leans out the window and blows a cloud of Flare Breath at the pirates.
Metal Man (GM): What was the DC? 1 hit. And I should have rolled 8, but meh.
Metal Man: "...Darn. I can't leap out of the car. Who here has the most intelligence? Hmmmm... Locos. You drive!" *He takes one action and sticks Locos in the driver's seat, while he leaps out of the car.*
Metal Man pulls out a skateboard and starts... flying?
Charles Magellean allows himself to be taken and gets behind the wheel.
Digifanatic: "What is he DOING?"
Metal Man: "Testing out an old toy."
Wolfman: "...What the heck? How did you get that Star Board?!?" *He remembers that toy clearly.*
Metal Man: "The STARBOARD!" *As he says that, he attacks all the space pirates with a single DVD... a fly-by attack.*
Metal Man (GM): All of them are BARELY hit for 11 damage.
VG: "Great... a crazy driver AND flyer. I think I liked things back at the old Stadium."
Metal Man: "But this is the old stadium... this thing is ancient!"
VG: "...the OTHER old one."
Metal Man (GM): The Space Pirates, although annoyed at Metal, decide the CAC is a bigger threat. They open fire on it again.
Charles Magellean looks into the rear view mirror, and attempts a barrelroll.
Metal Man (GM): Let's see... 8 hits, 5 damage each due to acorn. 40% damage.
CAC: "Shields are at 95% of 200%."
VG: "Who here is good at repairing shields on the fly?"
Charles Magellean let's loose of the barrel roll as the car as it spins a couple of times before it resumes course.
Gibby shoots at a pirate.
Metal Man (GM): CRIT! Dead pirate.
Gibby: "WOOT! I got one!"
Wolfman: "Nice one."
Metal Man: "Good work."
Wolfman gets his hand on his cannon, just in case.
Aribar is just sitting in the car...
Gibby fires at another pirate.
Metal Man (GM): Miss.
VG gives Aribar and Garrick an Energizer each... they could use the attack boost.
Garrick Fy`aar takes it, using it straight away.
Metal Man (GM): Aribar and Garrick are automatically under the effects of Energizer.
VG: *DING* *Aribar, Garrick: the energizer gives you a 10% boost in attacking for the rest of this fight.*
Aribar fires two Jolts at two different space pirates... Although it'll only do 25% electric damage it may stun them which might possibly cause them to drop like a rock.
Metal Man (GM): 1 of them is automatically killed by the attack. By the stun. The other just takes 25% damage.
VG definitely feels useful this mission.
Garrick Fy`aar flips a switch on his gun, targeting a fresh ship and unloading a clip of regular shots at it, all of them inflamed into incendiary bullets.
Metal Man (GM): 6 hits. That space pirate explodes.
Spyke holds his palms together, 6 inches apart. Eyes closed, he gathers wind energy between his palms (Charging)
Charles Magellean uses his feet to steer... he then turns the rubix cube.
Metal Man (GM): IS this the second turn of the cube? The cube glows. All the Space pirates are confused... ...And that's it.
Charles Magellean puts the cube away.
VG: "...just... what did you do?"
Charles Magellean goes back to steering. "...something random."
Wolfman aims carefully at two of the strong ones... might as well weaken them. He fires.
Metal Man (GM): One hit.
Deloth leans out again and shoots another blast of Flare Breath at the pirates.
Metal Man (GM): 1 hit.
VG is impressed with the variety of moves his teammates are showing.
Metal Man on his starboard, attacks them all with the dictionary blast!
Garrick Fy`aar: *with that power, it'd... only hit one, right.*
Metal Man (GM): All miss... Metal tries it again. CRIT! 32% damage to all pirates. 1 dies.
VG: *Screams* "...anyone know why Metal is using DICTIONARIES now?"
Garrick Fy`aar: "It's Metal."
Gibby: "He's... psychotic?"
Spyke: "He has... a weird mind..."
Metal Man (GM): Space Pirate turns. They continue focusing on the car.
VG: "He better not have taken any from the library... I know Wolfman loves read--OW!"
Metal Man (GM): 3 hits... 15%.
VG got rocked a little.
Gibby: "Gah! Take THIS, space pirate!"
Wolfman: *To driver* "Keep it steady in there!"
Gibby fires two shots at one.
Charles Magellean: "Aye, commander Wolfenstein!"
Metal Man (GM): Hit hit! That one dies.
CAC: "Shield is at 70% of 200%. Hull is at 300%."
Gibby: "Like shooting fish in a barrel."
VG didn't want to use this... but here is to hoping. He throws his one star egg at the group of pirates, hoping it takes them all out.
Metal Man (GM): 2 hits.
VG smiles a little... but he has no more Star Eggs. He then attempts to use his hat to make a Toad Shield for the car... if that's even possible.
Metal Man (GM): It works... you leap on the hood. To intercept incoming shots.
Aribar downs a Maple Syrup and Jolts one one of those targets for 25% Electric and possibly stun.
VG is now living dangerously... he's riding on the hood of the car, using his own hat.
Garrick Fy`aar does what he did last time, on a different ship than what Ari hit.
Wolfman looks back to see... VG on the roof, using his hat for defense? Oh brother... he really is into this mission.
Metal Man (GM): All but 1 hit. *DEATH.*
Garrick Fy`aar: "I need to get me a few of those energizer deals..."
Spyke releases a swirling ball of wind a few feet in diameter at a pirate.
VG: "I need to buy some more when we get back, so don't worry."
Metal Man (GM): Hit!
Deloth: "Here, take mine." *He tosses his Energizer to Garrick.*
Metal Man (GM): It explodes.
Garrick Fy`aar grabs it and places it in his pocket for later use.
VG: "The energizer is already working Deloth."
Metal Man (GM): 1 Space Pirate left.
VG missed the toss. "...oh; nevermind." *He looks at the one remaining pirate... that is probably confused the last time he remembered Locos doing something with that cube of his.*
Metal Man (GM): All it needs is a small nudge to die.
Charles Magellean uses his feet... can he reach the top and shoot off the remaining pirate with his automatics? *12% per hit.*
Metal Man (GM): It explodes. All Pirates down.
Wolfman: "There we go!"
Metal Man (GM): You get another comms.
Garrick Fy`aar: "Nicely done. Let's get to the tower pronto."
Charles Magellean holsters his guns and goes back to driving.
Zio: "Curse you! You won't get away with this!"
VG would cheer, but he decides to slowly get back into his seat.
Charles Magellean: "Just leave us alone and we won't badmouth you."
Metal Man (GM): ...The Space Pirate ship turns around and starts flying towards the CAC. Do you engage?
Garrick Fy`aar: "...Locos... I wouldn't..."
Deloth: "We're doing an awful good job of getting away with this so far!"
Zio: "Face the almighty power of my ultimate weapons!"
Charles Magellean looks in the rearview mirror.
VG: "Locos, you are a better driver than Metal, so I don't care what you choose."
Charles Magellean: "...Question... engage... or flee?"
Metal Man (GM): Nothing behind you.
Metal Man: "If we engage, most likely if we win Zio will be demoralized."
Deloth: "We need to make it to the tower alive, though."
Metal Man: "If we flee... it will probably pursue us."
Charles Magellean: "...Any...sane...suggestions?"
Garrick Fy`aar: "Smithy wanted Zio dead to begin with. It'll be a problem in that tower too..."
VG: "Sounds like we should fight it... hang on."
Garrick Fy`aar: "For all we know it could blast the tower with us in it."
Metal Man: "Hey... excellent idea, Garrick." *He takes out a cell phone while flying on the Star Board.*
VG digs through his inventory again... he pulls out... a Super Plush Bear. "Think we could use this on the CAC?"
Metal Man: "Hello. Nova? We need a Doom Ship. Pronto."
Aribar: "...Why are you carrying around a teddy bear?"
Charles Magellean: "No objections? Very well."
Nova: "Affirmative. It shall arrive soon."
Garrick Fy`aar: "...Metal, I forgive you for everything I accused you of. Brilliant!"
VG: "Because this teddy bear can absorb some of our damage."
Metal Man: "Okay. We just have to hold it off for a small while, then Smithy's doomship shall attack it! ...Yeah. Use that teddybear to protect the CAC."
VG: "Shall I deploy the Super Plush Bear?"
Garrick Fy`aar: "Turn us around, Locos. Let's bag ourselves a tanker."
Charles Magellean: "Engaging Space Pirate!"
VG deploys it on the front of the car... now we have two defenses.
Metal Man: "You keep the CAC working, while we attack the ship."
Metal Man (GM): 3 rounds of guardian acorn left.
Charles Magellean turns the steering wheel sharply and engage a circular pattern around the space pirate.
Metal Man (GM): It's a space ship, not a space pirate.
Garrick Fy`aar downs the Energizer that Del gave him, giving him a 10% damage increase while fighting that huge thing.
Metal Man (GM): It's much like the millennium falcon... mainly those two pincer-like extensions in front of the bridge.
Wolfman notes that... a super plus bear is now on the ship with us. "Gibby, we're about to take on the mother ship."
Metal Man: "The only way to damage it is to attack the ship is to attack the bridge. While it also puts us in range for Zio's 'Super Deathray', it's all we can do."
Garrick Fy`aar also pulls out a his last Max Mushroom, dumping it into the emergency fuel tank like a can of Liquid Sqwarts.
Deloth: "Awww, cute teddy."
Gibby: "I'm sooooo happy..."
Metal Man: "Oh, and it'll be launching space pirates at us intermittently."
VG: "Just survive long enough so I don't have to pull out another bear."
Charles Magellean: "Very well!"
Metal Man (GM): Shields have regenerated. CAC is at full health.
Charles Magellean pulls the CAC toward the front of the ship. He goes and skims the metal's surface several times.
Metal Man (GM): Questers + CAC vs. Zio's Space Pirate Mothership. There are three targets. The cockpit, left prong, right prong. The cockpit is manned by an armored Space Pirate.
Gibby shoots twice at the armored space pirate.
Deloth: "I'd go for the cockpit."
Metal Man (GM): Miss miss. It moves in time to deflect them.
VG: "Hmm... any idea what those... prong things are?"
Garrick Fy`aar takes a quick scan of the entire ship, looking for any repercussions to it if they took out the progs first.
VG notes that the ship... what the?!? MOVED fast?
Smash Dex: "...Scanning..."
VG notes his inventory again... perfect; super sneakers are available.
Metal Man (GM): Part one of three.
Smash Dex: "...DING!"
Zio's Space Pirate Mothership
(When glass is broken) Ultima Blaster: 5 d20+15, 40% per hit
Garrick Fy`aar goes head and uses his second action to scan again. Might as well get the bulk of it.
Prong R (Electromagnetic Wave)
Laser Beam: d20+15, 40% electric
Radiation Wave: STR check DC 18. Otherwise, TRIPLE poison.
Microwave: SPD check DC 16. Otherwise, 60% fire damage.
Charles Magellean: "We have to beat the crap out of this thing as much as possible."
Garrick Fy`aar: "Does anything happen to the ship if we take out the prongs first?"
Charles Magellean: "We're missing the other part."
VG scans the other prong.
Prong L (Sonic Wave)
VG: "Might as well see the whole thing."
Horrible Noise: All INT check DC 12. If fail, confused.
Ultrasound: 3 d20+15, 30% damage per hit.
Sonar Scan: +10 to hit for next round or next attack.
Smash Dex: "End of information. Classified as a Beta level enemy."
Aribar falls asleep in the car... Yeah... Let's go with that.
VG: "Oh brother... I'll hold off the first wave." *He goes to the hood of the car again for the Toad Shield... now with +4 AC bonus.*
Garrick Fy`aar attacks the right prong with a series of fiery shots...
Metal Man (GM): 6 hits, Garrick.
Wolfman: "SIMBER, if you can hear me, we need to swap Gibby out for Demon."
Metal Man (GM): Demon: You're warped into a turret at the back of a CAC ..Against a huge Space Pirate Frigate... 'Zio's Space Pirate Mothership' Your mission: Destroy it with the huge deathray you're controlling.
Spyke draws his pistol and fires off a single shot at Prong R. Trailing behind the shot, a vacuum forms, which then collapses like a second shot.
Metal Man (GM): One hit.
Spyke: *-19 Normal.*
Charles Magellean steers with his feet... yet again... car going a bit out of control, and fires 6 from his automatics at Prong R. *12% per hit.*
Metal Man (GM): And a CRIT! The Prong R is almost destroyed already!
Charles Magellean puts away his... weapon. He goes back to steering.
Zio: "Gaaaaaah! Worthless hunk of junk! Why did I have to depend on SLAVE LABOR?"
Wolfman lines up his cannon towards the R Prong, and fires two shots at it... hopefully, it will work.
Metal Man (GM): Miss hit. 21 hits. Damage for the 21? Oh... well then. That's DEATH-O-RAMA. And it is not saved by mechanics aboard.
Wolfman keeps the third luck quirk just in case.
Metal Man (GM): Prong R explodes. The glass on the bridge is also destroyed.
Wolfman: "There we g--uh oh..."
VG: "Umm... Garrick; did your Dex say anything about glass breaking?" *He tries to say that while holding the shield.*
Garrick Fy`aar: "Yep... it's going to blast death rays at us."
Metal Man goes nuts on the bridge, attacking the Space Pirate with jacks.
Metal Man (GM): 10% damage.
Metal Man then attacks it with a Dictionary beam.
VG: "Good thing I have spare acorns and bears then... we might need them."
Metal Man (GM): Darn... it BARELY misses. Open fire, Demon! Which target do you pick? Prong L or the cockpit?
King Demon fires his laser at the cockpit.
Wolfman sees Demon can still shoot pretty darn well.
Metal Man (GM): Yup. You hit. *BAM* 50% damage.
Zio: "Destroy their infernal car!"
Wolfman: "There you go... VG, get ready; they are coming for you!"
Metal Man (GM): The Space Pirate nods, then opens fire with Ultima Beam at the car. Miss hit crit hit hit. 1 hit... 10% damage.
Zio: "...WHATTTT???? ...Open fire with the remaining prong!"
Metal Man (GM): Prong L attacks with Ultrasound at the CAC.
Charles Magellean: "I... do not like prongs."
Metal Man (GM): 1 hit. 15% / 2... Teddy bear takes 8%, ship takes 7%.
Zio: "...Gaaaah! Curse those Questers! Destroy them, you imbecile!"
VG goes to the cockpit area to give Demon some Super Sneakers, and Locos an Energizer.
Zio: "That tower won't fall before they've called in the crackpot to save the day!"
Charles Magellean: "Guys, what should we do?...thank you?"
VG: "I suggest you blast that mothership."
Garrick Fy`aar will guess Prong L is still up, so he unloads on it.
Metal Man (GM): 1... 2... 3 hits.
Wolfman: "Demon, be honest with me. Which should we take out? The Prong, or the Cockpit?"
Spyke holds his palms together once again, gathering wind energy between them, eyes closed. He mumbles. "I'm going for the full thing now..."
Metal Man (GM): The Space Pirate yells at you in an unknown tongue.
King Demon: "Beats me, I'd say the cockpit simply 'cuz its probably the most dangerous"
Charles Magellean takes an energizer and unholsters his automatics "Prong or cockpit guys?!"
Metal Man: "Cockpit!"
VG: "I don't care at this point; just shoot!" *Somewhat excited voice.*
Charles Magellean: "Lower evasion, so that's the one!"
Metal Man (GM): Hit hit hit hit. 4 hits.
Charles Magellean: *22% per hit.*
Charles Magellean unloaded like... load big bullets of doomness. "Yes."
Wolfman fires two shots at the Cockpit in hopes that we can down the ship quickly.
King Demon fires at the cockpit as well.
Metal Man (GM): Wow. 150% damage. Ok... Overdrive mode activates for me.
Metal Man: "It's time to take down this ship!" *He flies up to the cockpit and attacks with... Disco Inferno!*
VG: "Just don't act too crazy Metal. ...nevermind."
Metal Man (GM): A disco ball flies out and starts firing lasers at the ship.
Charles Magellean: "Is that the BG's staying alive?"
VG will NOT answer that question.
Metal Man (GM): 10% damage to Prong L.
Metal Man: "...Bah. This should take it down! FINAL DISCO!"
VG: *Screams* "Aim for the cockpit you idiot!"
Metal Man (GM): Cockpit is hit for 22% damage... plus... 4 hits from that Smackathon for 15% each... Whoops.
Spyke: "... Weirdness..."
Metal Man (GM): 4 more hits for 10% each from the other hand's Smack-a-thon...
Charles Magellean: "I love this song."
Metal Man (GM): And finally... another attack from the Disco Ball.
Charles Magellean grooves to the beat.
VG doesn't get what Locos is talking about.
Spyke just shakes his head slowly...
Charles Magellean: "It's a song from Earth. You wouldn't understand."
Metal Man (GM): And 3 more hits 10 damage each. Basically, the cockpit is swamped with Disco-themed attacks. The ship opens fire on the CAC yet again... even though it's losing.
Charles Magellean: "I... frickin' enjoy this song..."
Wolfman: "Guys, get ready for an attack... wait; where is our shield?" *ROCKED.*
Metal Man (GM): All of those are guaranteed to hit if not blocked.
King Demon: "I don't know, I thought YOU had it..."
Metal Man (GM): 200% damage.
Metal Man (GM): The other prong joins in, firing at the CAC.
Charles Magellean: "Shields down at 50%, yo."
VG: "This ship can handle at least 200%..." *ROCKED.*
Spyke: "This doesn't look good... What are we at? How much more can this thing take?"
Charles Magellean: "I think the bear's... taken too much damage."
VG: "We can win; just don't give up!"
Metal Man: "Our defenses took most of the damage. 137 of 200% shielding up."
VG sees the bear get the stuffing ripped out of him.
Wolfman: "Demon, fire your shot at the cockpit, and make it count!"
King Demon fires the laser cannon at the cockpit again.
VG can't believe Demon missed... he was a good shot too...
Metal Man (GM): ...It misses.
VG: "Locos, you finish him."
Spyke: "... Good luck, Locos."
Charles Magellean: "It's not up to me."
Zio: "They're also weak... just last a bit longer, and they shall be destroyed!"
VG: "Who is it up to then?"
Metal Man: "Me?"
VG: "Just blast the buggers!" *Anxious type voice.*
Charles Magellean: "Just know this Zio."
Metal Man: "I could probably try to finish it off."
Charles Magellean puts on sunglasses... "Can't Touch This."
VG: "...I don't know who is more crazy; Locos or Metal."
Charles Magellean cranks up the volume to the song and fires 6 shots at the cockpit.
Metal Man (GM): Miss hit hit hit hit hit.
Charles Magellean: *110% damage.*
Metal Man (GM): = Ship destruction
Charles Magellean: "Break it down!"
Metal Man (GM): You blast it back... the Space Pirate dead... the cockpit exploding. The entire ship lurches backwards.
VG: "...whatever you say."
Spyke: "Should I just throw my ball of wind at it for fun so as it doesn't go to waste?"
Charles Magellean just blasts shots from his machinegun for the insane sadistic fun of it.
Metal Man: "The left prong, attack it."
VG tries bobbing his head to the music...
Metal Man (GM): Spyke: You may roll to attack the left prong. It's still working, although it won't when the ship smashes.
Spyke lets out a battle cry as he flings the ball of wind at the left prong.
Metal Man (GM): The prong cannot dodge. It is hit. It merely dents the prong. The entire ship smashes.... 300 more EXP. *MISSION COMPLETED. Completion rank: A* Long story short... Everybody goes to the tower and triggers the distress call. Zio's forces attack, but... are overwhelmed by Ivan's just in time. The city is saved from horrible destruction. Zio yells the oft-used 'Curse You!' from another ship, and his remaining forces flee.
VG has a... well, decent big smile for a toad. He served his part well.
King Demon shrugs and smacks the laser cannon for missing the last shot.
Metal Man (GM): Everyone but Demon gets 10k coins... Demon gets 3k.
