Super Smash Quest - Story - Chapter 145: Evil Hockey and Overkill Strikes Again
Date: 5:17:10 PM, February 17th, 2005.
Charles Magellean stands back.
Wolfman takes out his recently modified Howl Buster. He fires one shot at each statue.
Aribar: "...Too cowardly for me..." *The elf stands where he is.*
Charles Magellean: "There is a difference between cowardice and smartness, elf."
Metal Man (GM): No roll. The one furthest away comes to life. It starts wandering around the room, berserkly. It does not enter the room you're in.
Digifanatic: "Well, we know which one's the mole..."
King Demon is still standing on the switch, I think.
Metal Man (GM): ...Ohhh... It attacks Demon.
Aribar attempts to wait until it bounces over a switch and fires a Jolt at it.
Wolfman: "Demon, you are an idiot you know!"
King Demon runs.
Gibby: .oO(Finally... someone ELSE is an idiot...)
Wolfman comes rushing towards the moving armos, gets his beam saber out, and attempts Dancing with it... when in doubt, think like Link.
Metal Man (GM): Demon takes 10 damage.
Aribar guesses the Armos ignores him and is 100% impervious to his Jolt.
Metal Man (GM): The Armos misses you both and explodes.
Gibby: "Did we win?"
King Demon: "Guess so..." *He launches a fireball at the farthest statue.*
Wolfman: "Demon, I know it's been awhile since you've seen me, but I still suggest you listen to me once in awhile."
Charles Magellean enters the room again.
Metal Man (GM): The furthest statue is not effected... it's normal.
Deloth pushes the other statue onto a switch.
King Demon runs to it and tries to push it on one of the switches.
VG enters the statue room... again. He is a little short to be pushing them, though...
Spyke enters the room and stands in the center watching Deloth push on the statue... and now KD, too.
Gibby watches people putting statues on switches.
Digifanatic enters the room again.
Metal Man (GM): The door ahead opens, once the statues are on the switches.
Charles Magellean: "This is, of course, a trap."
Wolfman: "I don't see the trap Locos."
Deloth heads through the door.
Gibby: "Looks like we did it."
VG follows Deloth in.
Digifanatic walks into the next room.
King Demon: "In that case, you can go through the next door first Locos."
Wolfman follows Digi in.
Gibby waits a bit... making sure the door's not a trap.
Spyke walks over to the door and then enters as well.
Metal Man (GM): The next room... is weird. It's a huge ice rink.
Gibby shrugs, and enters.
Metal Man (GM): There's a door somewhere across the room...
Spyke: "... Fun..."
Charles Magellean walks to the next door... then looks into it before entering.
King Demon: "Great, I HATE ice..."
Metal Man (GM): ...And three Armos Knights ice skating.
Metal Man (GM): With what look like razor-sharp hockey sticks.
Gibby: "Anyone else seeing what I'm seeing?"
Spyke blinks "Funny... I didn't think they were smart enough to iceskate."
VG: "A hockey game?"
Metal Man (GM): And seasonal green hats.
King Demon: "Yeah, I see it... now what?"
Charles Magellean: "We get past them."
Metal Man (GM): They're playing hockey with an old skull.
Wolfman: "Sounds like we have to play to do that."
Gibby: "And I thought hockey season was cancelled!" (OH SNAP!)
Aribar attempts to see if there is a pattern to the Knights' movement.
Deloth: "I'd say they're just full of surprises."
Spyke: "... Are they playing... Man... I hate sports."
Gibby: "I'd say they make good moving targets." *He takes out his gun.*
Wolfman gets a look at the Questers... trying to find the big, beefy, and somewhat speedy/strong ones. "Gibby, don't."
Gibby: "Awww..." "I don't get to have ANY fun..."
Wolfman still attempts to find those of good hockey material...
King Demon: "Hey Gibby, why don't you EAT them?"
Gibby: "They look like they'd taste bad."
Spyke is lean, somewhat muscular, but not what one would call 'buff'. He is moderately fast. (+6 STR Bonus, +5 SPD Bonus)
Wolfman gets a good look at Spyke... alright, there is one. He tries to find another one...
Aribar: "... Fire Elemental Blast!" *He attempts to melt a hole in the ice in the path of one of the knights.*
Wolfman: "Ari, I was watching them play!"
Gibby: "Heh... nice one."
Aribar: "I hate sports."
VG: "Well don't go blowing up the rink!"
Charles Magellean: "Stop complaining, and get moving."
Metal Man (GM): An ice hole forms...
King Demon: "Guess I'm out, thats the only way I'd be able to fight here..."
Metal Man (GM): All three of them leap over it and skate towards Aribar.
Gibby: "Well if he does, we can watch them have a swimming race."
Metal Man (GM): They look mean. Angry. And tough.
Deloth: "HE DID IT!"
Spyke: "... Why must we upset everything with brash actions?"
Deloth steps away and points to Ari.
Digifanatic: "That is almost unhuman..."
King Demon slides to the other side of the rink.
Metal Man (GM): All three of them are about to attack Aribar.
Wolfman: "I did not want him to do that, for the record. I was kind of hoping for a match... but I guess that won't happen... unless the rink is fixed."
Metal Man (GM): They ignore King Demon.
Wolfman glares at Aribar.
Gibby: "Look out, Ari!"
Digifanatic follows Demon.
Charles Magellean just goes beside Aribar and goes skating to the right.
Wolfman: (to Ari) "Fix it, NOW."
Spyke draws his weapon and fires at one of them, if he can.
Aribar attempts to jump over the first and step on the others heads and past them when they attack. "Can't! No magic left!"
VG just stays where he is... this is not his best day.
Gibby: "Humph... THEY get to attack them, but can Gibby? Nooooo..."
Wolfman: "Oh, for the love of... VG, please say you have some Syrup or something for Ari here."
Metal Man (GM): Aribar: STR check... Spyke: Yes.
VG checks the inventory.... "Nope."
Spyke fires a single shot, which leaves an impact trail behind it.
Deloth pulls out his Ice Rod and plunges it into the hole, then uses its Freeze ability.
Charles Magellean: "No words can describe how unintelligent you are, Gibby." *He jumps into the air and attempts a 1080 spin.*
Metal Man (GM): Aribar is swatted out of the air for 30 damage, and then into Spyke's shot.
Gibby: "And no words can describe how annoying you can get, Locos. BOOYA! IN YOUR FACE!"
Metal Man (GM): Locos does what he says.
Charles Magellean: "Not a good burn, butterball. Not a good burn at all."
Gibby: "Yeah? Well so's my mother!"
Digifanatic: "You two stop... this reminds me of my old days..."
Wolfman: "Guys, I think we should fix the rink right now."
Gibby: .oO(That should shut him up.)
Deloth: "I already did." *He points to his Ice Rod.*
Wolfman gets a look at the rod... He then looks at the hole... or rather, former hole...
Charles Magellean: "I would, but I have no ice anything. Except for my ice block." *He skates further.*
Metal Man (GM): The hole is closed, Spyke avoids Aribar....
Aribar: *BADGES ACTIVATED!*
Metal Man (GM): There are three hockey sticks.
Wolfman: "Armos, I hereby declare a hockey match with you. Allow me to choose two teammates... if we win, we go through. If we lose... well, you decide."
Charles Magellean: "I am not participating."
Spyke: "Yeah! Er... Wait... Who is going to play, Wolf?"
Metal Man (GM): *SPECIAL BATTLE.*
Aribar: "I refuse to play some stupid game!"
Metal Man (GM): We now change things up.
Gibby: "It's not like we're professionals. ...or even willing."
Metal Man (GM): Only three people can play. The goal is to score. Magic and special attacks can be used. Who wishes to join in?
Wolfman: "Sorry Ari, but your brain power is going to be needed... I'm putting you on Goalie."
Gibby: "I guess I'll join in if you want me to."
Wolfman: "Spyke, you'll be a good compliment with me charging for the puck."
Spyke: "I'll play if needed..."
Aribar: "What? No way!"
Charles Magellean: "If that's the case, then you shouldn't play, Wolf."
Wolfman: "If anyone has objections, say so now."
Charles Magellean goes for a quadruple jumping spin.
Gibby: "Ari doesn't even want to play."
King Demon: "Ill join, what the heck."
Gibby: "And Locos is making a fool out of himself."
King Demon: "Can I get a stick please?"
Aribar gets up off of the ice finally. "I don't know how to play the game, and I'm not gonna play it against a bunch of stupid statues!"
Deloth walks over and yanks his Ice Rod out "Open mouth insert foot, huh, Ari?"
Metal Man (GM): Locos makes a somewhat short spin.
Aribar: "I bet Skyhigh's smarter than these jocks..." *He trudges off to a corner of the room.*
Wolfman: "...Gibby, are you more willing to play?"
Gibby: "Compared to the others, yeah."
Wolfman: "Think you can be a good goalie?"
Metal Man (GM): *WARP* Metal pops in.
Metal Man: "If you need me, I'm here."
Gibby shrugs. "Sure."
Spyke: "I'll play, Wolf."
Metal Man: "Alright!"
Wolfman: (to Armos) "Since I declared the challenge for this team, must I be one of the players?"
Metal Man (GM): One of them steps forward, and talks in a gravely voice... weird.
Iron Knuckle: "No, you can coach on the sidelines."
Wolfman: "Very well... Metal, Spyke, be the forwards or whatever the positions are for this short game."
Gibby heads towards the net singing. "Gonna be a goalie... that's pretty neat. Gonna be a goalie... I won't be beat."
Metal Man: "Okay..."
Spyke nods and does a rather corny V with his hand "Alright!"
Metal Man (GM): Ok... so we have me and Spyke for the forwards, Gibby is the goalie.
Spyke: "Okay, so... I'll get my hockey stick right now, right coach?" *He looks to Wolfman.*
Wolfman: "Right." *He goes to his special coaching box.*
Digifanatic: "Alright guys, go get em."
VG: "Go knock them dead Coach!"
Deloth heads to the spectator stands.
VG goes to his audience seat and eats some popcorn... wait; he didn't bring popcorn, did he?
Digifanatic watches amongst the sidelines. (wall near the door)
Gibby: "So... all I gotta do is stop the ball from getting into the net, right?"
Spyke goes to get his hockey stick. "Heh... This should be fun."
King Demon sits down wherever he can and waits for the game to end.
Gibby: "Sounds simple enough."
Metal Man: "Okay then. Do you want to be the person who serves?"
Gibby grabs a hockey stick.
King Demon sits back drinking a cherry pepsi and eating some popcorn while watching the game.
VG somehow finds... popcorn? "Is it any good Demon?"
King Demon: "Needs butter, but other than that... Want a pepsi?"
Digifanatic: "Nah, I'm good."
King Demon hands Deloth a pepsi.
King Demon: "Go team!"
Gibby looks at everyone eating food, and deep inside, he's crying... just a little, but still crying.
Deloth opens it and takes a sip.
Spyke: "Yay Us!" *He raises the stick above his head in both hands * "YEAH!"
VG just sits down and doesn't eat or drink anything. For all he knows, the stuff here could be poisonous.
Gibby: "Yeah... go team..."
Wolfman gets a look at his makeshaft hockey team... time to see if he remembers all of those books on short game hockey...
Spyke: "Okay... Umm... Whatever you things are... Are there any special rules for this match? Limits or illega; maneuvers?"
Metal Man: "Okay... you serving, Spyke? No illegal maneuvers. We must get three goals."
Spyke: "Eh... You serve..." *He backs off a bit.*
Gibby gets in position.
Metal Man: "Okay."
Wolfman: "Ready team?"
Spyke slides back a short ways and slaps the flat of his stick on the ice "Ready..."
Metal Man gets up to the hockey puck with another one of the Iron... Knuckles.
Metal Man: "Ready!"
Wolfman: "Good luck all."
Spyke leans forward a bit, some of his weight on the stick. Beads of sweat from on his brow.
Wolfman sits in his special coaching chair and watches the game.
Metal Man and the IK begin by trying to hit the puck.
Metal Man (GM): You can also try to take it past them with a SPD check. They're slow.
Spyke gets the puck and grins, looking for an opening. He skates forward, a bit unused to the ice. He speeds forward, towards the enemy goal.
Metal Man (GM): ...You pass the first one. The second one tries to hit you.
Deloth: "Look out!"
Spyke ducks under it narrowly.
Wolfman: "Get it in there!"
Metal Man follows behind, as does the passed IK.
Metal Man (GM): Alright... now to get it past the huge goalie.
Digifanatic: "Alright!" (chanting) "Spyke! Spyke! Spyke! Spyke!"
King Demon: "Err, go Spyke!"
Gibby: .oO(Hmmm... if Spyke and Metal are this good, maybe I won't have to worry about having to defend.)
Spyke turns so that he is passing on a directrix-like line with the Goal as the Foci. He stops suddenly and slaps the stick at the puck (Or was it a skull?) passing it back to metal.
Metal Man (GM): It bounces off of the goalie. IK 2 tries to get the puck! He fails. Metal tries to get the puck! He gets it.
Digifanatic: "Nice recovery Metal!"
Wolfman: "Don't make me nervous out there Metal... now get it in there!"
Spyke: "Go, Metal!"
Deloth takes another drink of soda.
Metal Man: "HYAAHHHH!!! Take this, Iron Knuckle!" *He goes into to Goalie's face and attacks with the Hockey Stick.*
King Demon finishes off the first bag of popcorn and grabs another.
Metal Man (GM): It hits, knocking the Goalie away and scoring.
Digifanatic: "Nice shot!"
Spyke: "Wooo!" *He skates back a a bit, going on the defensive.*
Wolfman: "THAT'S how you do it!"
VG cheers loudly.
Metal Man (GM): BUZZ!!! Ganondorf: 0 Questers: 1
Spyke: "Come on you heavy things, try and get it past me!"
Deloth stands up and jumps, spilling some soda.
Metal Man (GM): The puck reappears in the center... one of them was waiting there. It immediately attacks Gibby with the puck.
Gibby: "Uh oh..."
Metal Man (GM): ...It sends the puck to Gibby. Gibby: You may do what you want with the puck.
Spyke turns around "Pass!"
Gibby gets the puck, and passes it to Spyke.
Metal Man (GM): IK 2 tries to grab it before Spyke! SPD check for it and Spyke. The IK trips, Spyke firmly in possession of it. He can try against the goalie again.
Wolfman: "Don't make my oil pressure rise any higher Spyke; go on the offensive now!"
Spyke speeds forward, slamming his stick against the puck/skull, trying to get it past the enemy goalie.
Metal Man (GM): The goalie blocks, and tries to punch you. Hit?
Spyke is caught in the chin, falling back.
Metal Man (GM): Meanwhile, the other two mob Metal. Spyke takes 20% damage. One hit to Metal, who immediately attacks back with a spinning attack.
Digifanatic: "Watch out Gibby!"
Gibby gets prepared.
Wolfman: "Gibby, get ready to defend here."
Digifanatic: "They might be coming for ya!"
Metal Man misses. The two go towards Gibby. Spyke's puck is launched back at him by the Goalie.
Spyke slowly gets to his feet, holding the stick in one hand, his weapon in the other. He watches the Iks.
Metal Man (GM): It misses, but goes to Metal. Metal passes it at Spyke... It goes to the goalie. Who tries to attack Spyke with it ..It goes at Gibby this time.
Spyke tries to stop it with his stick? "Grrrrr... Wolf, may I shoot the goalie?" *He motions to the IK Goalie with his weapon.*
Wolfman: "I know this is Hockey, but be as fair as you can first."
Spyke: "... Fine..." *He holsters his weapon.*
Metal Man (GM): Gibby grabs it ...And then is mobbed by the two Iron Knuckles.
Spyke: "Does that include bashing them over the head with my stick?"
Gibby: "YIKES!" *He gets hit by one.*
Wolfman: "...that's more like it." *He notes that Gibby is in trouble... sugar.*
Spyke skates over to the other side, raising his stick to above waist level. He tries to club the one that hit Gibby.
Metal Man (GM): Spyke misses.... And an IK tries to score!
Spyke: "Gibby, Block it!"
Wolfman: "Watch yourself Gibby!"
Gibby attempts to block it.
Metal Man (GM): *SCORE!*
Gibby barely misses.
Wolfman: "Alright... almost, almost."
Spyke moves back to center, awaiting the puck.
Metal Man (GM): Ganondorf: 1, Questers: 1
Wolfman: "That Iron Knuckle got lucky; don't worry."
Metal Man (GM): It goes into the middle.... Metal tries to send it to the goal ..It just gets lost in the ice. Spyke, what do you do?
Spyke skates after it, trying to beat any IKs to it.
Metal Man (GM): ...You got it! Now you just need to shoot to the goal.
Spyke continues forward, bringing it to the enemy goal... He brings it as close as he can before slapping it towards the goal.
Wolfman: "Metal, give Spyke some backup!"
Metal Man (GM): ...You score anyway. Ganondorf: 1, Questers: 2
Spyke skates back, grimacing. "... It's not over yet... don't get cocky, Gibmeister."
Metal Man (GM): It goes into the middle... to the Iron Knuckles. One heads towards Gibby, the other gets in Metal's way.
Metal Man: "Get out of my way, hunk of junk!" *He bashes the Iron Knuckle.*
Spyke skates towards the the heading towards Gibby, trying to thwack it again. "Not today, sorry!"
Wolfman: "Keep it up guys."
Metal Man (GM): You hit it, this time. No need; you just knocked it away.
Spyke looks around for the puck and the other IK.
Metal Man (GM): It's now with.... One IK. Who tries to score off of Gibby.
Gibby tries blocking it.
Wolfman sees Gibby save it this time. "There we go!"
Spyke: "Yeah, Gibmeister!" *Skates down he rink, heading for the goal. * "Here!"
Gibby passes to Spyke.
Deloth: "YAY GIBBY!" *He eats the soda can.*
Gibby: *-_-;* "Thanks... I think."
Metal Man (GM): Spyke gets it. Spyke: Go to score and finish this!
Spyke spins around, and slaps the puck one last time... He hopes... aimign for the enemy goal. "And now it ends!"
Metal Man (GM): ...It goes back at Gibby's goal. Gibby punts it back to Spyke.
Gibby gets it... WITH SYLE! "I think I'm getting the hang of this."
Spyke tries one more time to get it in the opposing goal "Correction... Now!" "Or sometime tomorrow..." *He says as he slaps the puck.*
Metal Man (GM): ...It BARELY gets in.
Metal Man (GM): A whole lot of sparks go out. The room turns back to normal... the IKs disappear. The next door is open.
Spyke: "Or now!" *He jumps up* "Yay!" *He lands and falls on his back on the ice. * "Uf..."
Deloth jumps 9 feet into the air and cheers.
Gibby runs around the ice rink as he celebrates.
Wolfman: "Nice job team."
Gibby: "GO GIBBY! GO GIBBY!"
Metal Man (GM): Spyke, Gibby and I gain 100 EXP.
VG goes with the others.
Gibby: "I should go pro..."
Deloth heads for the door.
Gibby heads for the door.
Charles Magellean: "What an embarrassing display."
Wolfman catches up with Gibby and co. "...what do you mean?"
Charles Magellean follows.
Gibby: "Aw come on... you know you liked it."
Spyke tosses aside the stick and stands up, following, beads of sweat rolling off his skin.
Gibby: "And there's Mr. MVP!"
Spyke: "Gibby, You are now to be known as the Gib who could."
Metal Man (GM): The next area up ahead is a dead end. However... it's got some interesting stuff...
Spyke: "Nice goalieing out there."
Gibby: "Nice shooting."
Spyke: "Thanks" ^^
Metal Man: "Nice everything."
King Demon: "Good job guys!"
Deloth: "Ooh, stuff!"
Metal Man (GM): It's a large room... there's an unholy stone in the center.
Gibby: "Hmm... a stone. Perhaps I should grab it."
Wolfman: "Wait a second Gibby..."
Deloth: "Don't touch."
Spyke: "Well... A nice trophy... How do we move it?"
Deloth: "Don't touch!"
Gibby: "Awww... I can't do ANYTHING..."
King Demon scans the stone.
Spyke: "But he is the Little Gib who could!"
VG: "Guys, I understand you won and all... but this could very well be a TRAP."
Smash Dex: "...DING!"
Smash Dex: "Stone of evil."
Gibby: "So far so good."
Smash Dex: "One of three. Being used to free Ganondorf."
King Demon: "Descriptive name..."
Smash Dex: "You must find a way to get rid of it."
Deloth: "Blow it up?"
Gibby: "I could shoot it!"
Smash Dex: "PS: Infests all who touch it with darkness."
Gibby pulls out the gun.
VG: "...well, that might work."
Charles Magellean: "You even shoot it..."
King Demon: "Get... rid... of... it... Sounds really easy..."
Charles Magellean: "Can we at least try an exorcism?"
Wolfman: "A what?"
King Demon: "Is anyone here a priest?"
Gibby shoots the stone twice. "Exercise? No thanks..."
Aribar: "...You'd think giant stones usually seal a person here..."
Charles Magellean: "..."
Spyke: "I say we shoot it... a lot."
Charles Magellean grows with a little more darkness.
Metal Man (GM): *PING* *PING.*
Aribar hrms and takes out his Magikoopa wand... He attempts to change it to the offensive mode...
Metal Man (GM): The thing shines... a purple gas is leaking out of it. The door closes.
Gibby: "Hmmm... that cannot be good."
Spyke: "... Now that... is bad."
Metal Man (GM): The wand does as you wish it to do.
King Demon: "Good going gibby..."
Metal Man: "...We're all gonna die!"
Gibby: "HEY, you guys let me do it!"
Wolfman: "Not just yet Metal... we just have to contain that gas."
Charles Magellean: "You are all at fault for doing, to put it bluntly, dumbass actions."
Spyke: "Would wind help? Is there a vent somewhere?" *Looks around.*
King Demon: "Anyone bring their hockey stick?"
Gibby: "Locos, just... go sit in the corner."
Aribar: "Goodie... Hrm... Let's try some ice!" *The elf attempts to make an icy barrier around the stone... He's taking Wolf's idea.*
Charles Magellean: "Minus Metal, perhaps."
Metal Man (GM): There are no vents.
Deloth fans the gas away from them with his wings.
Charles Magellean: "Aribar as well."
Metal Man (GM): It's frozen by Aribar. Frozen solid... the gas dissipates.
Deloth: "Nice, Ari."
Gibby: "That works."
King Demon: "Wonder if we can touch it now...."
Spyke: "But how long will the ice hold?"
Gibby: "No touching!"
Aribar: "Okay... I don't know how long that'll work... Does evil melt ice?"
Metal Man: "Not usually."
Charles Magellean: "I will have to look that up."
Metal Man: "But we still need to destroy it."
Gibby: "Couldn't we just... bury it?"
Spyke: "What is best for breaking stones... Anyone have a really big hammer?"
VG: "Burying? That wouldn't exactly make the environmentalists happy..."
Gibby: "They're always upset over something... if it ain't the dolphins, it's the trees."
Charles Magellean: "No matter what happens, that evil mist would flow from the statue."
Aribar: "I don't think enviromentalists come to the Dark World... Hrm..."
Metal Man: "Hey Locos... what about that mirror of yours?"
Spyke: "Maybe... shoving it into somewhere else?"
Metal Man: "Maybe there's something in the Dark World."
King Demon searches the room for something strong enough to break the stone.
Metal Man: "I mean... light world!"
Charles Magellean: "Perhaps there is something in the other dimension we can use."
Metal Man: "After all, this building appears to exist in both world."
Charles Magellean equips his badge.
Spyke: "Hm... I guess... Better than nothing, I suppose."
Metal Man (GM): Locos: It is ready to be used.
VG: "Wait... I'm unsure if everyone should just head out with you."
Gibby: "Some should stay?"
Charles Magellean: "Agreed."
Spyke: "I'm not waiting in a locked room with an evil stone that might suffocate me..."
Metal Man: "I can stay."
Gibby: "I might as well stay."
King Demon: "Question: HOW ARE WE SUPPOSED TO GET OUT OF HERE WHEN THE DOORS ARE SEALED SHUT!?"
Spyke: "Answer: Very carefully."
Gibby: "Answer: mirrors."
Deloth: "I'll stay."
Charles Magellean: "Your question is not worthy of having an answer."
King Demon: "Oh... Who invited you into this?"
Charles Magellean: "Spyke, Deloth; come with me."
Wolfman: "Locos, choose who should hold the fort and who should go with you."
Spyke: "Yes, sir!"
Charles Magellean: *Wolfman, as do you.*"
Gibby: "Well I'm as good as stuck here then."
Wolfman: "Yes sir." *He goes with Locos.*
King Demon: "Oh good, this will be fun..."
VG: "I'm sure it's not that bad... the gas is still frozen in the block of ice."
Deloth steps behind Locos "Ready to go."
Charles Magellean: "Hmm... on second thought, the combo of Wolfman & VG should not be broken. Ari, take Wolf's place."
VG: "Are you saying I'm ineffective without Wolfman here?"
Metal Man sits around.
Spyke: "What if the ice melts? Who will refreeze it?"
King Demon: "Ok, so we get to sit here on our butts while you go and have fun?"
VG: "My items are not just meant for him you know!"
Charles Magellean: "Very well. Stay as I have said." *He pokes into his magic mirror with his finger.*
Metal Man (GM): *WARP.*
Wolfman smiles at VG... he sure is determined.
Aribar just stands in a corner while Locos does what he does...
Metal Man (GM): Locos and whoever is with Locos appears in the light world. There's a hammer there.
Spyke: "Was I right or was I right? A hammer!"
Wolfman: "But will it work?"
Charles Magellean: "Take out your weapons."
Wolfman shows Locos his beam saber.
Deloth unsheathes his katana and Ice Rod.
Charles Magellean: "What I meant was be prepared for a battle. But you get the point. Wolf, grab the hammer since you are the strongest of the three of us."
Spyke draws his pistol and holds it ready.
Charles Magellean readies Last Request.
Wolfman takes the Hammer. He sheathes his light saber.
Deloth puts his Ice Rod away.
Charles Magellean looks around the room and uses his true vision.
Metal Man (GM): There is... an aura of trap around the hammer. A switch, under it.
Charles Magellean: "Hmm... something suspicious about the hammer."
Wolfman took the hammer though...
Metal Man (GM): *CLICK.*
Charles Magellean: "Trying looking around on the hamm--"
Metal Man (GM): Sefiros_-_And_It_Keeps_Repeating(Transbot).mp3 The pedestal flies out of the ground. A new, stronger OverKill 3000+ Deluxe appears.
Wolfman: "...for the record, you told me to take it."
Hammer Brother: "Heh heh heh. Into the trap you go! Prepare to be flattened!"
Charles Magellean reveals his good side for the time being.
Spyke: "How cliche..."
Charles Magellean: "...Now this trap you speak about." *He looks around quizically.*
Deloth: "What, you again? Sheeze."
Hammer Brother: "That's me!"
Charles Magellean: "I think it's time we did this with some backup." *He attempts to press the button on his magic mirror.*
Metal Man (GM): Locos warps back.
Spyke: "... He ditched us!"
Charles Magellean looks around ...and appears in the dark world.
Overkill: "Heh heh heh."
Charles Magellean: "Come come, everyone! Our friends are trapped by the Overkill!"
Metal Man (GM): A new laser turret pops out of the roof and attacks everyone in the Light World.
Metal Man: "I'm coming!" *Runs to Locos.*
Wolfman attempts to dodge, dip, dive, duck, and dodge these.
King Demon: "I'll go!"
Charles Magellean: "Aribar, you too."
Metal Man (GM): 20% damage to Wolf.
Aribar dashes to Locos.
VG: "I'm coming!"
Charles Magellean: "Round three: here we come!" *He uses the magic mirror to warp to the light world.*
Metal Man (GM): Deloth: 20 damage. You go to warp... will appear in round three. The machine then fires a Bob-omb at Deloth.
VG hopes leaving doesn't cause issues with that stone room...
Metal Man (GM): 30% damage.
Hammer Brother: "Heh heh heh."
Metal Man (GM): The Hammer Brother launches bullet bills at Deloth. One miss, one hit for 10%.
Wolfman attempts to step in front of Deloth... might as well help out. "I'm coming!"
Metal Man (GM): Wolf: You fail... that second attack is too strong.
Deloth: *Life Down!*
Wolfman sees Deloth is still standing, though... barely...?
Deloth coughs, then uses an Elixir *40% healage to all.*
Metal Man (GM): Which means only to Spyke, Deloth, and Wolf.
Wolfman rushes to this Overkill creep... but instead of dancing, he tries bashing... with the hammer. He aims for... well, whatever is on Wolfman's eye level right now.
Metal Man (GM): Hit. deals 25% flat damage. The metal cockpit is damaged.
Wolfman then sweeps to trip him.
Metal Man (GM): Hit... but it isn't very well tripped... it has four legs. Round two! It fires at everyone with that laser again.
Wolfman doesn't like lasers...
Metal Man (GM): 20% damage to you two.... Ok... Spyke takes double damage. 40% damage to him. Deloth also takes 40% damage... Deloth is killinated.
Deloth: *Points up.*
Metal Man (GM): Deloth: El fail! *LIFE DOOOOM.*
Metal Man (GM): The thing then attacks Spyke with hammers. WOAH! Luck of doom! Spyke is confused. He takes 10% damage. Then it turns to Wolfman and fires twin Bob-ombs at him.
Spyke feels a bit weird. He loses his balance on one foot and has @.@ eyes.
Metal Man (GM): 10% per hit.
Wolfman gets a-sploded. He spits the soot out of his mouth.
Spyke continues to charge his attack.
Metal Man (GM): Spyke: Your attack asplode on you instead of charging. You take level 1 charge damage to yourself. *DEATH* The Overkill is finally still.
Spyke loses a life. ><
Deloth jumps off the revival platform and uses a Fire Ruby.
Metal Man (GM): You use it... you need to use it in conjunction with an attack. Which takes 1 action exactly.
Deloth then attacks the Overkill with a Friction Blade.
Metal Man (GM): Barely miss! Then the rest of the people warp in.
Wolfman uses his Howl Buster first to put more dents on that cockpit.
Metal Man (GM): Hit miss hit.
Wolfman then rushes the Overkill with the Hammer of D^^M.
Metal Man (GM): Hit!
Metal Man (GM): *SMASH* The metal cockpit is destroyed. Revealing an unarmored one.
VG gets a quick look at the status... oh brother... He gives Wolfman a special item... a Red Essence! "Make sure to use that hammer well, alright?" *He then gets his hat set up for Reflectoring.*
Aribar goes up to slash the Overkill twice.
Metal Man (GM): Hit CRIT!
Hammer Brother: "Gah!!!"
Metal Man (GM): The laser turret above his head opens fire on all.
Metal Man takes another 20 damage!
Metal Man (GM): Unfortunately for VG, VG avoids it.
VG never moved... but still avoided it?
Metal Man (GM): Aribar takes 40% damage
Wolfman doesn't do a thing... his Red Essence protects him.
Metal Man (GM): Locos takes 40% damage. Spyke takes 20% damage. Locos only takes 20% then. The thing notices Wolfman's invincibility... It turns to VG and attacks with a ram attack! ...It misses, hitting a wall.
VG wonders how it missed a standing target...
Metal Man (GM): So, next, it opens fire a Bob-omb at VG.
Charles Magellean: "...Hammer Brother, face it. You aren't able to beat me."
Metal Man (GM): VG's too fast for his own reflector move's good!
Hammer Brother: "It's a living, Locos. I get paid!"
Charles Magellean: "Then don't attack me."
Spyke hops off the revival platform and leaps at the laser turret thing, going for a Weapon Break.
Metal Man (GM): ...I hope you bought insurance. It punts you away...
Wolfman sees Spyke going for the weapon... and paying for it.
Metal Man (GM): Spyke: Your weapon goes ka-snap!
Hammer Brother: "Heh heh heh!"
Spyke: "Gah!" *Lands somewhere off a bit, landing on the broken fragments of his weapon.*
Charles Magellean mocks by going " 'Heh heh heh' yourself, bro'!" He fires Last Request.
Hammer Brother: "Get your own trademark, cheater!"
Metal Man (GM): Miss hit hit.
Charles Magellean: *10% damage! He holsters his machinegun to the left of his buckle, knowing he can't do anything since he fired a multiple target/bullet.*
Metal Man (GM): Hmmm... ok.
Wolfman does the Donkey Kong with two hammer swings towards the cockpit.
Metal Man (GM): *SMASH.*
Hammer Brother: "Owwwww!"
Metal Man: "Alright... take this, hunk of junk!" *He attempts... throwing jacks at the pilot!*
Metal Man (GM): Not again! Ugh!
VG sees Metal doing more of his crazy thing... he just doesn't get it.
Charles Magellean: "The finishing blow is mine!"
Metal Man (GM): Two hits... 10 damage each. Whoops. Only one hit. 10 damage.
VG: "One problem Locos... I don't know how much health this thing has left!"
Charles Magellean: "We soon find oot!"
Wolfman: *Red Essence: 2 rounds left.*
Spyke groans as he sits up "Scan it, I guess... Just hope it doesn't have some sort of scrambling mechanism..."
VG: "This old kook? Doubt it!" (I go, right?)
Metal Man (GM): ...Mystery challenger has appeared!
Kappa: "...Interesting target has been found."
VG sees someone else has appeared... oh great.
Kappa: "I shall assist you in destroying this machine."
Hammer Brother: "Hey! It's that hunk of garbage I'm supposed to destroy!"
VG uses the Smash Dex.
Smash Dex: "...DING!"
Overkill 3000+ Deluxe
Main HP: 86/800%
Metal Cockpit HP: DESTROYED/50%
Metal Vase protector HP: 0/100%
Aribar: "Great... This is impossible..."
Dual Bullet Bill: 2 d20+10. 10% fire damage per hit.
Bob-omb: d20+5. Deals 30% damage if it hits.
Hammer Throw: 2 d20+8. Causes confusion if hits, 5% damage per hit.
Cheese Doodle Eating Attack: Regain 25% damage.
Laser Turret: A panel atop the machine opens. It then opens fire on everyone with a blue, sweeping laser. DC 20 SPD check, 20% damage if hit.
Battering Ram: d20. Deals 80% damage if it hits.
Special: Can hide in the ground and mimic a regular vase trap, distributing Bob-ombs every 2 rounds, until a bob-omb is thrown at it and hits.
Special 2: Oooh... Metal cockpit protecting its cockpit and vase...
Special 3: Cool shiny forcefield! 50% chance of reflecting attacks.
...Except the force field is not up yet.
Hammer Brother: "Hey! Thanks for reminding me!"
VG makes note of that...
Metal Man (GM): He turns on his force field.
Charles Magellean: "Welp, we know what to do."
VG: "Thanks for remind me of THAT as well!"
Hammer Brother: "Boy, that was close... I was gonna fight without my shield!"
VG throws a DEBARRIER cube at the force field!
Charles Magellean: "Kappa, if you would do the honors of making a counter move?"
VG: *Force field ASPLODE.*
Kappa: "I will, on my turn..."
Metal Man (GM): ...The force field glows.
VG: "...What the?!?"
Metal Man (GM): The cube flies back and hits Wolfman! Red Essence: DISABLED!
VG: "How did he do that?!?"
Hammer Brother: "Heh heh heh!"
Spyke: "This isn't good..."
Charles Magellean: "Duh, remember? Force field."
Wolfman feels a little... unprotected. "This mission is not going my way today..."
Aribar hrms... The elf decides to take this time to drink two Maple Syrups.
Spyke: "I need that laser turret down before I attempt to charge... It will stop me every time..."
Metal Man (GM): Mmmmmm... syrup... sugary... *drools* I mean...
Kappa: "Target scan begin."
Metal Man (GM): The scan pierces the shield.
Charles Magellean: "What I'm amazed is how Kappa got here into the Dark World."
Kappa: "You are in the light world."
Spyke: "Who cares? At least it is aiding us right now..."
Charles Magellean: "Brain lag."
Kappa: "This enemy has low intelligence, and two obvious weak spots..."
VG: "...which are?" *He is hoping this bad guy/good guy will reveal them.*
Kappa: "Cockpit and Smokestack."
Wolfman has been aiming for the cockpit most of this time.
Spyke: "Smokestack, huh?... I am guessing the whole thing is non-elemental, correct?"
Charles Magellean: "Yep... and I'm gonna exploit that weakness yet again!?"
VG hopes he can avenge himself for making Wolfman lose the Red Essence... that was a dirty trick the Overkill used...
Charles Magellean: "Right now, our main worries are its laser turret and force field."
Wolfman: "So how do we get rid of the force field?"
Charles Magellean: "X-Zone blast. Debarrier cube. Something else. You decide."
Spyke: "Another try with one of those cubes might work... We don't have another one to lose to worry about..."
Kappa: "Move ready."
Metal Man (GM): Kappa glows.
VG: "I already used one; what makes you think another one will work?"
Metal Man (GM): A beam flies from Kappa and at the machine...
Charles Magellean: "When it penetrates the force field."
Spyke: "Uhh... Scond try is the charm?"
Metal Man (GM): It is absorbed into the shield, because nobody else has special defenses.
Kappa: "Second attempt."
Metal Man (GM): It is blocked, as well.
Charles Magellean: "Might wanna try something else, butterball."
Hammer Brother: "Heh heh heh! Take this, everybody!"
Spyke: "Grrrr... I say we just attack it head on for now, then..."
Metal Man (GM): After blowing three lucky chances, Kappa has a lucky day and dodges it anyway.
Metal Man (GM): 20% damage, of course, to all effected.
Hammer Brother: "Heh heh heh!"
Metal Man (GM): Then, he concentrates on Kappa, firing two bob-ombs at him.
Charles Magellean is at the threshold.
Metal Man (GM): The one that does crit hits the lucky day thing... so it only hits for normal damage.
Aribar: "Gah..." *The elf looks hurt... At 100%.*
Spyke looks at the heap of his weapon on the ground "Grrrrr..." He turns back to the Overkill. "You'll pay!" He flings a ball of wind, over a foot in diameter at the thing's cockpit.
Metal Man (GM): It's reflected at Aribar.
Hammer Brother: "Heh heh heh!" *He's looking even cockier than before!*
Aribar is killed by Spyke.
Metal Man (GM): Spyke: You gain 10 EXP for killing Aribar!
Spyke: "Stupid... Stupid STUPID STUPID!!" *He hops up and down, yelling that over and over again...*
Metal Man (GM): The Hammer Brother is eating an apple, now.
Hammer Brother: "Who needs to pay attention? My force field will kill you all!"
Kappa: "If I just hit, you'll be doomed..."
Charles Magellean picks out his rubix cube. He turned it once in the first part of the mission after getting first place, so he turns the cube one more time, and allows it to spin.
Metal Man (GM): It spins, firing a ray at the mecha.
Charles Magellean: "Round and round it goes; what it does, nobody knows."
Metal Man (GM): It turns everyone to stone! Ahhhhhhhh! j/k It hits everyone for 10 damage.
Charles Magellean survives... barely. He turns the cube one time.
Aribar: "Locos, can't you just warp us back to Dark World?!"
Spyke is knocked back a bit. "Gah!"
VG: "What good would that do?"
Kappa: "You have the hammer. Do you need to fight this thing?"
Spyke: "Well, for one, we would have the hammer and we would be away from this... this thing!"
Aribar: "Well, these guys wouldn't be able to follow us... "
Charles Magellean: "I'm not sure if we could all gather up in time before he attacked us."
Spyke: "Anyway, I'm not leaving... This thing will pay for breaking my gun!"
Wolfman rushes towards the force field... he goes for two hammer swings in the cockpit.
Metal Man (GM): One hit. The other, you hit yourself. *BONK BONK!*
Wolfman gets KA-BONKED after hitting him... or before him?
Metal Man (GM): Ka-bonked before hitting, then you hit him.
Wolfman: *CLOSE CALL and MEGA RUSH now active.*
Metal Man hurls two DVDs at it.
Metal Man (GM): *SMACK SMACK.*
Metal Man is hit once, after hitting the mecha for 10 damage.
Main HP: 121/800%
Metal Cockpit HP: DESTROYED/50%
Metal Vase protector HP: 0/100%
VG uses his first action for grabbing a Megalixer! Everyone becomes soaked with its goodness... or something. (gain 60% HP all)
Wolfman: *CLOSE CALL and MEGA RUSH now de-active.*
Charles Magellean swirls around a couple times then says "Thank you!"
Kappa: "Thank you."
Spyke nods "Thanks..."
Metal Man: "Yay!"
VG then goes for the Debarrier cube throw again... at least this time, no more barriers to "accidentally" remove.
Hammer Brother: "Curse you, Toad Butler!"
Metal Man (GM): It bounces off and into VG's hand. It doesn't break.
VG catches it?
Kappa: "Destroy shield..."
Metal Man (GM): Darn... It actually outsmarted the beam!
Kappa: "DESTROY SHIELD!"
Metal Man (GM): It is resisting the move...
Kappa: "This machine is too powerful... I must keep on trying..."
Charles Magellean: "...I believe the overall effectiveness of the counter-move is below 20%."
Hammer Brother: "Laser away!"
Charles Magellean: "Or 40%...whichever it is."
VG and Metal are both lucky.
Metal Man (GM): You mean, VG and Kappa. Metal takes 20%.
VG still can't believe he's on Kappa's side here...
Spyke: "This is getting ridiculous! I want this thing to have a break down!"
Metal Man (GM): Overkill then fires four bullet bills at Spyke. 10% per hit... no counter-attacking. *WARP* Garrick appears.
Spyke avoids only 2 of the four.
Garrick Fy`aar appears from a beam of golden light, decked out in his usual attire. His eyes glances around and takes in the situation quickly... he looks at Kappa... then that thing called Overdrive....
Spyke: "Gah!! Damn... this thing... Someone break its damn laser! And that shield!"
Garrick Fy`aar turns with a start and unloads on it.
Wolfman has his hands full with a hammer that he knows how to use "Incoming!"
Charles Magellean: "Oh my word... not again."
Metal Man (GM): 5 of them are bounced back at Locos. Two hits actually on overkill, Garrick.
Garrick Fy`aar: "What IS that thing?!?! And what the hell is Kappa doing here?!?!"
VG: "Guys, I'm going to suggest ONE projectile at a time."
Spyke: "Projectiles don't matter... Anything is sent back at us..."
Charles Magellean: "It's fighting this third ugly thing."
Wolfman: "Kappa is here to help... though so far, he hasn't had much luck breaking that barrier." *He sees VG a little steamed.*
VG is steamed.
Charles Magellean: "So he's helping us. And don't attack, Garrick, cause there's a 50% chance that your attack will not hit."
Wolfman: "VG can't handle it either.'"
Garrick Fy`aar: "Then maybe I can help out..."
Spyke flings another blast of wind at the enemy cockpit, a bit agitated.
Metal Man (GM): ...Thanks to the crit it hits, normal damage. No, it doesn't fly off and take somebody else's eye out. Okay then. VG is hit with the attack for 22% damage.
Spyke: "... DAMMIT!"
VG should probably stay on reflectoring duty...
Garrick Fy`aar: "...has anyone tried SCANNING this thing?"
Charles Magellean: "...We did, Garrick."
Wolfman: "Done awhile ago actually."
Spyke: "We did... It actually helped the pilot... He was reminded of his Force Field due to it..."
Wolfman: "It was AFTER we scanned that the forcefield was put up."
Charles Magellean: "That's what caused him to remember he had the shielding."
Garrick Fy`aar: "Right... well..."
Charles Magellean: "This is why I do not often scan anymore."
Spyke: "I think we need to stop scanning things... It always makes things worse..."
Charles Magellean: "Okay... try to do something... unorthodox."
VG: "Aren't most of you guys already unorthodox?"
Charles Magellean gives a glance to the hammer brother... he has @_@ eyes... and chants in a non-rhythmic way.
Metal Man (GM): Lucky you! You get control of the Hammer Brother for 1 action. Let me guess. 'Hammer Brother tears out the stick for the force field, permanently disabling it'---?
Charles Magellean: "Whhhaaaat shoooulld I dooo..."
Spyke: "Do? Huh?" *Gives Locos an odd look.*
Kappa: "Destroy the force field."
Charles Magellean: "Giveee seellff gggreeaatest hammmer tiimee. Deesstroyyy fooorcee fiield."
Hammer Brother: "Yeeeessss maasssteeeerrrr..."
Metal Man (GM): *SMASH SMASH SMASH SMASH* The force field dies.
Wolfman: "Thank you Locos." (said by VG as well)
Spyke: "... I will forever praise the ground Locos walks on..."
Charles Magellean: "I will take note of that." *He writes down that in his journal.*
Spyke: "Wait a second now. I said I would praise it. Don't take that the wrong way and think I owe you anything..."
Wolfman: "...you do."
Charles Magellean then gets out his little automatic friends. "No, Spyke. You do not owe me anything. Fire at the metal vase protector!" *He fires 6 bullets at the metal casing.*
Metal Man (GM): Hit hit hit hit. Four hits.
Charles Magellean blows the smoke that comes out of his little friends.
Spyke half-flinches expecting those to come back. He sighs. "Sorry... Natural reaction after what has been happening..."
Charles Magellean: "Understandable. Now... destroy the casing!"
VG hopes this battle will be easy now...
Spyke: "Now... if we could remove that laser turret, we would be in good straits..."
Charles Magellean: "That laser turret's gotta go to. Make a note of that Kappa."
Garrick Fy`aar: "..." *He glances to Locos, then back to Kappa, then back to Overkill.*
Charles Magellean: "If it helps us, then it isn't evil. I respect those that help others fight a common enemy."
Wolfman Hammer. Cockpit. Engage.
Metal Man (GM): Smashy Smashy!
Metal Man attacks it with jacks!
Metal Man (GM): One hit, one miss. 10 damage. It fires a Bob-omb at me. And misses.
Charles Magellean: "!" *He tries for an idea of weapon.*
Metal Man (GM): You could use VG's hat as a weapon!
Charles Magellean: "VG! Try using your hat to destroy the laser turret!"
VG understand's Locos's idea... he grips his hat... and flings it towards the turret, like a frisbee.
Charles Magellean: "A hat is very durable! It cannot break!"
Metal Man (GM): TIE! Roll again!
Charles Magellean: "...It broke."
Metal Man (GM): Or... do you want BOTH to break? *CRACK* *SMASH* Both the hat and gun break.
VG: "AAAH! My hat!"
Garrick Fy`aar: "...whoa..."
Charles Magellean: "...It broke."
Hammer Brother: "AAH! My Laser Cannon!"
Spyke: "I am torn between joy and sadness..."
VG runs to the hat... which is by the Overkill.
Garrick Fy`aar: "...I didn't know that thing could be thrown like that..."
VG attempts to Grab and Dunk the thing out of pure anger.
Kappa: "...Attack copied! Laser Cannon!"
Metal Man (GM): Miss.
VG just grabs his own messed up hat... it can't do much right now.
Kappa: "LASER CANNON!"
Spyke thinks to himself. .oO(Wait... This isn't good... If Kappa is copying all this and...) He shudders.
Metal Man (GM): The Hammer Brother tries to dodge... but is barely hit. Luckily, it isn't being turned against you.
VG: *Moves disabled: Rushing Head Tackle, Toad Shield, Reflector, Headbutt.*
Kappa: "Scanning Garrick... ...Target seems devoid of normal weaknesses... ...INT is lower than normal, though."
Charles Magellean: "Kappa... I believe we have something to discuss about."
Kappa: "Move formulated."
Charles Magellean opens his autograph book... with signatures throughout his life. "...May I have your signature?"
Charles Magellean: "This pen will work."
VG REALLY doesn't understand Locos now.
