Super Smash Quest - Story - Chapter 158: Terrifying Machines From the Abyss
Date: 9:33:32 PM, March 3rd; 12:23:28 PM, March 4th, 2005.
Spyke goes to his room, items in hand, and spreads them across his work station. He then begins to test and ponder on different combinations, looking for the best possible effects while also looking at flaws. "If I do that... then I have 7 badges with me, which doesn't leave much room for anything else... But if I do that... then that is messed up... Hrm... Do I need that?..."
Aribar puts his hand on the hilt of Moonlight.
Charles Magellean: "Hunter, I say it's time we bury the hatchet."
Aribar: "What? A melee match?"
Charles Magellean: "You've been getten on my nerves for the last time. I wanna beat you BBBAAAAADD."
Aribar: "Oh? And you think that your constant changing of sides makes me trust or like you either?"
King Demon: "I call the control room!"
Charles Magellean: "This isn't able my double-agent... ...This is personal."
Garrick Fy`aar puts a hand on King Demon's shoulder.
Aribar: "You flip over to the opposing side more than pancakes are flipped at the House of Pancakes!"
King Demon: "Hmmm?"
Charles Magellean: "You've called me traitor so many times..."
Garrick Fy`aar: "A moment..."
King Demon: "Ok..."
Charles Magellean: "You have moral displacements..."
Aribar stands up from his chair and looks up to meet Locos's gaze. He's probably shorter than the Lunarian.
Charles Magellean: "...And you just outright don't respect me!"
Metal Man: "Well, at least nobody hates me." *He smirks and does a backflip.*
Aribar: "I'd say you hit the nail on the head."
Charles Magellean: "Now then... name the place, the time."
Aribar: "How about here and now?"
Charles Magellean: "It's time to put up or shut up! That's fine with me!"
Aribar unsheaths his short sword.
Garrick Fy`aar: "Hold it, both of you!"
Charles Magellean: "Oh... let's have some fun."
Garrick Fy`aar walks up to the two of them, his arms folded across his chest.
Charles Magellean: "You take off that ridiculous Mega Rush badge, then we'll see who's the better man."
Garrick Fy`aar: "If you two really want to duke it out, do it in the arena."
Charles Magellean: "...or elf. I say that's a perfect place..."
Aribar takes off the badge and throws it to the side... "Fine. I've no plans on picking it back up... Garrick, you're not part of this!"
Charles Magellean: "Only two lives, and No items. Final Destination."
Aribar: "Prepare to lose. This shall not be a repeat performance of my fight with Metal!" *He heads off towards the locker room.*
Garrick Fy`aar glances after Aribar, then at Locos.
Charles Magellean heads off towards the console controls to program in the information.
Garrick Fy`aar turns and walks after Aribar. He steps into the locker room after him.
Charles Magellean: "S.I.M.B.E.R. , what are the odds for these conditions?"
Garrick Fy`aar: "...you sure you want to do this, Ari?"
Aribar: "I've no choice, Garrick."
Garrick Fy`aar: "You sure as hell do have a choice, Aribar."
Aribar: "To go back on my words now would be to admit defeat to that traitor!"
SIMBER: "Aribar: 1 in 3. Locos: 1 in 3."
Aribar: "I'm sorry, but not even Mewtwo could change my thoughts on this match now. Would you rather have Locos and I settle this at home or on the field during a mission?"
Garrick Fy`aar sighs, shaking his head to say no. "Listen, you've been butting heads ever since I came here."
Aribar: "That is correct."
Garrick Fy`aar: "So I expect that you'll stop it after this match. The last thing we need is a rivalry between you two that's even worse than before."
Charles Magellean dumps in 60,000 coins. 30,000 coins on Ari and himself.
Aribar: "I am not sure what will happen after this match, Garrick." *He bets all 54 of his coins on himself...*
Garrick Fy`aar: "The Questers are breaking, Ari. Yurie is gone, you and Locos are nuts, Metal is getting weirder, and I'm too focused on returning to my Earth in my time."
Metal Man: "Ahhh boo hoo Garrick. The Questers were always like this."
Aribar: "...Have faith, Garrick. As we weaken our enemies must as well. And Yurie is not gone... She's busy with her duties at Valhalla."
Garrick Fy`aar: "Doing what?! Helping some fool cause? We don't need her there, we need her HERE! We need you two to stop this damn rivalry."
Metal Man: "They said they'd stop after a simple melee match."
Garrick Fy`aar: "So get this over with... and I expect you to kick his ass, Aribar. Badge or no badge."
Aribar: "...I happen to be second in command of that fool cause."
Metal Man: "What's the harm? It's just old times. I bet all the rest of my money on Aribar."
Aribar: "Whoever wants that Megarush badge can take it... Right now I have a melee match to go to."
Garrick Fy`aar doesn't bet. He doesn't want to.
Aribar heads into the arena. The elf has no smirks on his face or any confidence this match will be easy. "Locos, I am ready!"
Garrick Fy`aar: "...I hope they know what their doing." *He heads for the observation lounge where probably a good deal of the Smashers are as well.*
Metal Man: "Aribar has been a Quester longer than I have."
Charles Magellean is at the opposite side of the platform. He does the 'Just... Bring It' taunt with his hand.
Aribar stands on the one side of the arena. The elf holds Moonlight defensively in his left and only hand. Aribar drops down into his combat stance and looks Locos. "I shall treat you like I'd treat any of my enemies." He rushes towards Locos and lets out a battle cry! The elf fires off a Magic Missile at Locos. As the orb of arcane energy strikes his target Aribar rushes in for a slash from Moonlight. (23% From Magic Missile.)
Metal Man: "Let's see if you can do what I did, Locos! It's... extremely hard."
Charles Magellean: "Come on, little elf. Give me a good bashing... but make sure to give the crowd too!"
Metal Man: "Even with constant healing, we both were equally matched... I hope you've got some master plan!"
Charles Magellean: "Ahhh... Here we go..."
Garrick Fy`aar: "...Metal, you know better than I do... can a Quester officially die?"
Charles Magellean: "Double Marauder Slash!" *15% dark damage per hit.*
Metal Man: "Nope, not in a match like this. The only times that happens is one of these two."
Aribar holds up Moonlight to block the powerful attacks but is too feeble to do so. "Auugh!"
Garrick Fy`aar: "I know that, but I mean outside a arena match."
Metal Man: "The first, they rebel against the Questers and are killed. Second, they are killed by the enemy... Zio and Kuja being well-known Quester killers. Kuja killed a slew of us when we fought him, until he was stopped by Alys. Alys was later killed fighting Zio..."
Garrick Fy`aar: "And when you say killed, you MEAN killed?"
Aribar backs up and goes to launch a bit of a magical barrage at Locos. He fires a Magic Missile and then shocks the Lunarian with a Jolt! (23% from Magic Missile, 15% Electric from Jolt and 50% stun.)
Metal Man: "Yes..."
Charles Magellean: "...switch... attacks..." *He falls to the ground.*
Aribar rushes towards Locos and just slices him a single time... His turn. He does not strike true... A miss.
Charles Magellean reaches up...
ArenaBox: *Random event* *Background changes to the sky view.*
Charles Magellean coughs up poison breath... He switches to a more reliable weapon... his Last Request. "I can't... fight you in this condition."
Aribar: "So you use guns? Hmph."
Charles Magellean then gets to moving towards one of the ends... in a slow way, hoping to lean towards the edge.
ArenaBox: crowd appeal: Aribar 11, Locos 11. This is one interesting match!
Aribar backs up... And Electric Elemental Blast at Locos! 60% Electric damage in the form of a ball of electricity heads towards Locos and explodes on contact.
ArenaBox: *Fuzzy static... END.*
Aribar: "Blast! Misjudged the distance."
Charles Magellean coughs out poison... he's had enough of it.
Aribar goes to dodge, but ends up almost hitting himself with said attack... It still misses, though.
ArenaBox: crowd appeal Locos: 12. No more poison means more interesting match!
Charles Magellean: "No... more... lightning!"
Aribar: "Fine! Have it your way."
Charles Magellean pulls out the Machine Gun. A Phantom's final weapon, the face of him fades into existence and is suspended upon 3 inches the top of Locos's head. Since there is only one enemy, it only shoots a small set of bullets, but each bullet it shoots is loud.
Metal Man: "Watch out, he'll fry you with elemental blasts if he can! ...Of course, for me, those blasts never really work to kill me instantly..." *He chuckles.*
Charles Magellean: *6% per hit.*
Aribar is hit thrice... He somehow manages to dodge the third part.
ArenaBox: crowd appeal Locos: 13 Big, loud guns are good now and then!
Charles Magellean: "Come on, little elf... are you... scared?"
Aribar: "Uugh... And here I was hoping for something impressive!" *The elf rushes back to the center and fires off... An Earth Elemental Blast! 60% Earth damage as the arcane energy explodes on Locos... IF it hits this time.*
ArenaBox: crowd appeal Aribar: 12 Big Explosion gives oohs and aahs Locos; I don't know if you are close to dead yet, but that DOES knock you off a ways any midair jumps? comebacks? quirks? or do you fall to your d^^m?
Charles Magellean: *BBOOOM* "AHH, Lord Dammit!"
ArenaBox: crowd appeal Aribar: 13 Successful kill!
Aribar: "For Whaller!"
ArenaBox: both of you are tied on crowd appeal Locos comes back off of the platform... he gets a free round due to invincibility-ness.
Charles Magellean appears back... he's thoroughly pissed.
ArenaBox: Locos appears about... one inch right of center.
Charles Magellean: "Let's dance little man!" *He pulls out one of his most used trump cards... the semi-automatics.* "Have some lead!" *16% per hit.*
Aribar rolls to the side and manages to dodge three bullets.
ArenaBox: Ari: you are closer to the left edge new round Background changes to... well, the orbit-stars type one.
Charles Magellean stands tall... the thirst of blood in his eyes.
Aribar: "Nice try, but not good enough..." *The elf casts Minor Healing on himself for 20% then fires a Magic Missile which unerringly targets Locos for 23% damage. He looks worn down... The elf will now have to rely on his blade to win this duel.*
Charles Magellean: "You forget that I just came back from the heavens."
Aribar: "Which means I have the joy of killing you again."
Charles Magellean: "Alright then... you wanna play dirty?"
ArenaBox: then consider yourself blasted after you aid that.
Charles Magellean fires many many shots from his guns. *16% per hit as per usual.*
Aribar is plastered against... Well, he's a dead Aribar. 252%.
ArenaBox: yep; plastered over the edge crowd appeal Aribar: 14 Locos: 12 I said "Guns now and then", not "Every time"!
Aribar hops down off of the revival platform. "Arrrg..."
ArenaBox: ari: your free round... you appear an inch left of center I'd say melee range enough.
Aribar rushes over and attempts to disarm Locos of one of his guns.
ArenaBox: CRIT! ...only one problem. I don't know if crits are auto here...
Metal Man (GM): Crits are not auto if defeated by a higher number.
Charles Magellean: (one last one) *...*
Aribar does manage to disarm Locos (Lest he Luckies it) of one of his guns before firing a Fire Elemental Blast at Locos from point blank range. 60% Fire.
Metal Man (GM): * GM INTERVENTION * Locos loses one of the two machineguns he has out currently. Which is now on the ground nearby. Carry on.
Charles Magellean has one of his guns knocked out of him... he then throws the other one to near where it is. "...Ari... ...One final move."
ArenaBox: crowd appeal: Ari 15, Locos 13
Aribar: "...To determine all of this?"
Charles Magellean walks away a bit to the edge that's closest to him. He then turns to face ari again. "Yes."
Aribar does so...
Charles Magellean goes down to one edge. "You go to one edge as well... and charge up your most powerful attack."
Aribar does so and sheaths Moonlight. He points his palm at Locos and a pinpoint of light appears within it...
ArenaBox: crowd support: Ari and Locos have SEVENTEEN! The crowd LOVES this!
Charles Magellean begins to kneel down. He takes out the Relic of Power: The Pseudo-cube Bazooka.
ArenaBox: Background changes to old default.
Aribar begins to glow and spark with electricity... The pinpoint of light glows and increases in size as the life-sapping Terrorbolt continues to charge.
Charles Magellean begins charging up the Pseudo-cube bazooka. He readies... He aims... "It's done! FIIIIRRRE." *He fires the bazooka after it glows.*
Aribar: "TERRORBOLT!" *A beam of pure lightning launches from his hand at Locos!*
Charles Magellean: "...It's up to fate now. Only one of us can win... so what will it be... A relic of power... or one of Whaller's most powerful techniques."
Aribar continues to power his deadly spell with his own life force... The elf begins to falter and kneels down. He continues to try and keep his balance and focus his mind on piercing Locos's attack.
Metal Man (GM): The terrorbolt hits the pseudocube bazooka attack, but is utterly destroyed. The remaining Psuedocube beam hits Aribar for 86% damage.*
ArenaBox: ...18 post-DBZ war.
Aribar is shocked to see his attack fail. The elf is blasted off of the edge and falls towards the black oblivion below. (106/100%.)
ArenaBox: Ari... that type of attack would probably blast you far to the boundaries, REGARDLESS of health.
Aribar accepts his defeat as he hits the bottom barrier...
Charles Magellean: "..."
ArenaBox: side barrier Ari you went *POOM.*
Lakitu: "Game Set! This game's winner is...LOCOS!"
Metal Man: "...I suck at gambling. Now I'm broke."
ArenaBox: stand by you two for awards.
Metal Man: "I'm gonna have to defeat Locos to get more money."
Charles Magellean goes a wee bit down... He begins to breathing... Aribar pushed him to his limits.
Garrick Fy`aar: "...I'm going to go find Ari." *He heads off to the locker room to check up on Ari.*
Aribar comes back on the revival platform and hops down... The elf kneels down once there, huffing and puffing. He looks towards Locos.
ArenaBox: And there was no Madman at the Wheel either.
Charles Magellean: "..." *He begins to stand up.*
ArenaBox: Locos: Marksman: +500 Showdown: +3000
Aribar: "Locos, you've won this... I shall not speak as much ill to you as I have once did, but let it be known that I will not trust you again."
Editor 's Note: So would Aribar have trusted Locos if he had beaten him?
ArenaBox: Ari: I can give you Showdown for the same 3000 you also gain Disarmer: +750 coins now, the crowd factor.
Aribar heads out of the arena and back into the locker room... He abandons whatever prizes he gets just like he cast away his badge...
ArenaBox: both of you had a crowd appeal of 18 at the end of the match, JUST before Ari went Poom add your award coin totals, and multiply by 1.8 THAT is your fighting pay.
Garrick Fy`aar it leaning against the doorframe in the locker room, looking at Ari "You fought a good match."
ArenaBox: Icicle Mountain had you guys at either 9 or 10...the crowd multiplier only works with 11 or above.
Aribar sits down on the nearest bench, panting and sweating... He merely nods at Garrick's comment while looking at the floor.
Metal Man (GM): *SLAM* Kappa lands on the arena from above.
SIMBER: "Intruder Alert. Intruder in the Arena."
Kappa: "I have been instructed to destroy the Questers."
Metal Man (GM): http://www.vgmusic.com/music/console/nintendo/gamecube/Hero_Dark.mid
Aribar looks up as he hears SIMBER.
Garrick Fy`aar: "...damn it. You still got some fight in you, Ari?"
VG hears that... he was about to shut down the thing too.
SIMBER: "Class 5 intruder. Phi unit."
Spyke finishes working on his latest creation...
Charles Magellean: "Oh crap."
Digifanatic wakes up from his rest. "What is going on NOW?"
Aribar: "...I shall manage." *He stands back up and walks out onto the arena.*
Garrick Fy`aar grabs Aribar by the shoulder, scowling at him "You act like this for weeks on end, I'll kick your ass myself. Get in the game, it's over."
Charles Magellean: "I just used my pseudo-cube bazooka against Aribar... ya gotta give me some time or ignore me."
Garrick Fy`aar: "Now, let's go fight this guy off."
Metal Man: "Like we'd let you beat us?" *He gets up and leaps aboard the Star Board.*
Garrick Fy`aar turns and heads into the arena, drawing his gun as he goes.
Metal Man: "Don't worry, Locos. We've got this thing covered."
Aribar: "I'm just a bit worn out from the last match... Don't worry, I can still fight."
VG does some fancy arena manipulation... this place is going to need it...
Metal Man (GM): In other news: AHHHHH!!! HAILSTORM!!!! ...Anyway...
Aribar comes back only the arena, his shortsword balanced on his left shoulder.
Digifanatic runs out to the Stadium grounds. "Oh boy... this guy just won't quit."
ArenaBox: Final Destination is DEFINITELY 3-D, and at the radius is at least twice as big I'm giving you guys room.
Garrick Fy`aar: "Kappa, great..."
Aribar: "...One Terrorbolt ought to drop him."
Digifanatic: "I dunno Ari, he wiped the slate clean last time..."
Garrick Fy`aar moves into the Final Destination area, drawing out a clip and slamming it home.
Charles Magellean: "We know how to deal with Kappa now... but we still don't have counters to his countering our weaknesses."
Metal Man (GM): All people fighting: Announce your SPDs.
ArenaBox: VG: in Arena Box control. Wolfman: if Metal is controlling, with others real me: packing.
Spyke slowly stands up form his semi-parabolic metal chair, and does a quick change of clothes, form his usual jeans and blue vest, to mostly black spandex material with some silver. He straps an odd metal disk to his back with a strange small circle in it, divided into 6 even sectors. He looks in a mirror and mutters to himself "Well, all looks good... I wonder how well it works, though..." He quickly equips some badges, and grabs his gun, running for the arena with he odd device on his back.
Metal Man (GM): http://www.vgmix.com/songs/PatrickWagstaff_-_Beat_This(Vectorman).mp3 Digi: You notice the enemy robot has a very powerful weapon in its hands.
Digifanatic: "Guys... see that weapon he's got. Take it."
Gibby: "Or perhaps... break it?"
Digifanatic: "One or the other."
Charles Magellean: "The question is... can we even get near him."
Kappa: "You cannot stop me."
Spyke looks around quickly before drawing his gun and firing upon Kappa, twice, each followed by an Air Trail "Air Splitter." He does this twice (Normal Move)
Metal Man (GM): Only the first one and the wonder badge crit hit for normal damage.
Spyke: *21% normal each.*
Kappa: "Resistance is impossible."
Spyke: "Damn... How did he dodge all that!?" .oO(Looks like I am going to have to test it now...)
Aribar points his sword at Kappa and fires two Electric Elemental Blasts at him! (60% Electric each.)
Metal Man (GM): Both miss.
Aribar: "Blasted robot!"
Kappa: "Your aim is pathetic."
Charles Magellean: "Fierce, but ineffective, I'm afraid."
Kappa: "Take this, pathetic mage."
Metal Man (GM): He opens fire with a powerful railcannon.
Charles Magellean: .oO(I just know this is a combination of my guns.)
Metal Man (GM): 51% damage per hit.
Aribar manages to dodge all but one of those shots.
Metal Man (GM): He then turns to Spyke.
Metal Man (GM): He opens fire at Spyke with the same thing.
Kappa: "You, Locos, are a class 5 threat as well."
Digifanatic: "Oh man..."
Metal Man (GM): He turns to Locos and opens fire with the cannon.
Spyke avoids all but the first shot, taking heavy damage and is thrown back a bit.
Charles Magellean: "...Whoa! Hey, I --"
Metal Man (GM): CRIT! 102% damage from that one.
Gibby: "...class five? ...ouch."
Kappa: "All targets must be destroyed."
Garrick Fy`aar unloads on him with regular rounds with a flank (FLANK!!), blasting at him from behind.
Metal Man (GM): First one misses as well... Two hits. the crit deals normal damage.
Charles Magellean uses his life force to absorb the blows... but he is weary.
Gibby: "I'm going after his weapon."
Kappa: "Your attempt will be futile!"
Gibby runs at Kappa, and tries breaking the weapon with a running kick. (opposing STR checks)
Charles Magellean: "...Nrrrnn..."
Metal Man (GM): He breaks YOUR weapon instead... it'll need to be repaired. *SMASH.*
Kappa: "Foolish marshmallow."
Digifanatic: "Dah... oh great."
Charles Magellean: "I don't understand. Why am I a threat??"
Gibby puts his gun away.
Digifanatic: "Probably because of that cape they saw you in..."
Kappa: "I will not give you that information."
Charles Magellean: "I'm only a class four since I can't use the bazooka."
Kappa: "You cannot use the bazooka? You are powerless to stop me, then."
Charles Magellean: "Oh right... well... that's confidential too. You'd probably use that weak badge 'Lucky Day' to dodge it."
Kappa: "You cannot defeat me. I am in possession of three chaos emeralds. I shall prove that by defeating all of you."
Aribar: "You gained another one?!"
Charles Magellean: "Since we're gonna die, would you be kind to extract your new abilities, strength, and all sorts of stuff a dex comes from?"
Kappa: "That does not compute."
Spyke: "... Hmmm..."
Charles Magellean: "A simple as one..." *He gets out dex.*
Metal Man: "Don't worry, I can handle him."
Charles Magellean: "Two..." *He aims. "Three." *He activates the signal for a dex.
Smash Dex: "...DING!"

Charles Magellean: "That last one is a combination of all my guns."
Digifanatic: "Oh great..."
Charles Magellean: "Speaking of which..."
Spyke swallows loudly... .oO(Yeah... I definitely need to test this now...)
Charles Magellean goes to fetch both of the automatics.
Digifanatic is not taking chances. He goes into Kappa with a pair of Fire Punches.
Metal Man (GM): Both hit!
Kappa: "...Argh. Wolf Crush enabled."
Metal Man: "Oh no you don't! CRYSTAL CONTAINER!"
Metal Man (GM): It misses.
Metal Man: "...Cheater! Take this!" *He runs up and tries to Ice Slash the machine.*
Digifanatic: "I think he's going for me..."
Metal Man (GM): That also misses...
Metal Man: "Somebody disable that horrible Lucky Day! I don't care how!"
Spyke: "Well... How?"
Digifanatic: "I dunno."
Gibby: "Must... think..."
Aribar: "If I foresaw this happening I would have learned the required spell!"
Metal Man: "It's a physical item. A badge. It doesn't work well if you smash it. Though I doubt it'd hurt him as well..."
Digifanatic: "Maybe we should just try and snatch it from him..."
King Demon launches a couple fireballs at the machine.
Spyke: "... I'm more worried about his gun..."
Metal Man (GM): Both miss, as he dodges. New round. Woohoo! Stadium items! A Starman... Egg, and a Fan.
Spyke leaps into the air, arms crossed in front of him, in a defensive X. "Vayu Armor!" The odd metal disk on his back expands with a series of metallic shink sounds. The disc itself forms into an angled fan. From its sides, two metallic wings spread, tapered back, with only a short wing spread. They then glow for a moment, becoming white. More pieces expand, covering his arms and torso. A pair of goggles snap over his eyes, sitting comfortably there. The fan activates, generating a consistent torrent of wind around his body.*
Aribar: "Don't let him get that Starman!"
Metal Man (GM): Spyke: You may use an action to grab an item.
Spyke goes for the Starman with a smile, flying after it.
Metal Man (GM): And use it, which is done in the same action. You just fly into it. You get the Starman. *Starman music.*
Aribar tries to stop Kappa with two Jolts! 15% Electric each, 50% stun rate.
Metal Man (GM): Of course, the one that would stun him misses. *STUNNZORED.*
Charles Magellean: "Oh yeah... that bought us some time."
Digifanatic: "Yes indeed."
Aribar: "Use said time wisely!"
Spyke: "Perfect..." *He circles in the air, glowing with Starman power and armor, which is working well enough.*
Metal Man (GM): Kappa misses his turn.
Charles Magellean: "Ari... would you be against me attempting to take his tank gun away from him?"
Garrick Fy`aar unloads a whole bunch of machine gun rounds at him.
Aribar: "...Of course! It is theft."
Charles Magellean: "I meant to take it then destroy it."
Aribar: "THAT'S different."
Metal Man (GM): So let's see... 20 26 26 28 28 21 25 28 17 22 22 18 19 18 One crit got luckied So... that's 15 normal hits
Gibby can't use his gun, so he's going to take full advantage of the items. He grabs the egg, and throws it at Kappa.
Metal Man (GM): Roll for the throw. A home-run bat comes out of the egg as you SMACK Kappa for.. ..10% damage.
Gibby: "Hmm... that bat could be useful."
Metal Man (GM): You may use your second action.
Garrick Fy`aar watches that bat fly. If he remembers right, that sucker could be very helpful.
Spyke: "Anyone up for a round of Kappaball?"
Gibby runs to the bat, grabs it, and whacks Kappa upside the head with it.
Metal Man (GM): He would have avoided it anyway, even with a crit he would have avoided being knocked outta the ballpark.
Charles Magellean: "Here I go!" *He raises a bit from the ground, then disappears. He then reappears in front of the stunned Kappa. Yoink!*
Metal Man (GM): You barely move fast enough to steal! You snatch... the Lucky Day badge, of course.
Charles Magellean takes one of his little trinkets.
Kappa: "Critical mission equipment stolen. Must obtain revenge."
Digifanatic: "No more contending with one of those!"
Spyke thinks to himself .oO(Now to bring on the hurting...) "Nice!"
Digifanatic: "For now..."
Metal Man (GM): Locos is counter-attacked by Kappa using a slice and dice! 20 damage per hit.
Charles Magellean still manages to get away.
Metal Man (GM): Oh... go ahead.
Charles Magellean reappears with the group.
Digifanatic knows his last action X Acc is gone after this... he uses Fire Lunge to simulate the effects next attack.
Charles Magellean: "Okay... not want I wanted... but still... nice. Ari... you're the 'expert' here. What should I do with it?"
Digifanatic: *X ACCURACY GONE.*
Metal Man (GM): Mein Turn....
Charles Magellean: "Run away so no one uses it... or try to destroy it?"
Metal Man (GM): Ok, use it.
Aribar: "...Toss it off the edge!" (Whatever It is.)
Digifanatic then uses a Super Mario Punch, going for some coins.
Metal Man (GM): ...It still misses. Even though it's above his AC. But no counter.
Charles Magellean: "Very well then... I... Charles Magellean... ...shall flee!" *He runs to outside of the arena.*
Garrick Fy`aar: "...coward."
Metal Man: "Take this, foul creature!"
Aribar: "...Let him go!"
Spyke: "... We don't need him."
Gibby: "Meh... and he makes fun of US..."
Metal Man attacks Kappa with two Ice Slashes.
Charles Magellean runs to Oak's lab.
Metal Man (GM): Two hits. 40% ice damage total.
Aribar: "If nothing else Kappa can't get that item back."
Charles Magellean: "...Pro... professor... oak... I need... I need this destroyed."
Kappa: "I will have to scan VG again to regain one of his abilities."
Professor Oak: "Oh? Just toss it in the trash compactor."
Charles Magellean breathes heavily.
Professor Oak: "You could sell it, though."
Charles Magellean tosses the lucky day into there!
Metal Man (GM): It flies in... *CRUSH* *SMASH* It's destroyed.
King Demon tries to fireball kappa again.
Charles Magellean: "Can't! I need to destroy it so Ari will forgive me! Thank you a lot!" *He goes running back into the arena.*
Professor Oak: "You're welcome."
Editor's Note: I'm surprised Oak didn't fish it out of the trash, given how often he stole from Questers.
Spyke smirks as he divebombs Kappa, bringing his own gun around to smack and hopefully break Kappa's weapon. (Weapon Break!)
Metal Man (GM): Items appear for an unknown reason. Lucky 1! Lucky 2! Lucky three! ...He blocks you through the power of his OTHER badge. Neither weapon is destroyed.
Spyke brings that weapon around, pulling it towards Kappa's gut, firing once "DAMN MACHINE!"
Metal Man (GM): You hit.
Spyke: *Haywire + 15% damage.*
Metal Man (GM): Now you've done it. He's gone haywire. Random attacks for all!
Charles Magellean wonders when he'll able to return back to the arena.
Metal Man (GM): Locos reappears next round. Oh... and items!
Aribar fires off an Electric Elemental Blast at Kappa for 60% and then uses a Maple Syrup... If allowed.
Metal Man (GM): Red Shell, Screwball, Pill. That's allowed. Kappa is shocked.
Digifanatic: "Nice shot."
Kappa: "Systems damaged... unable to decide attack."
Spyke laughs as he floats back a bit, away from Kappa.
Metal Man (GM): He uses Deloth's Sword Stab on... Aribar!
Aribar attempts to dodge the blows... He EASILY does so.
Metal Man (GM): He misses... but the stun wears off. Next he uses Avalanche against...
Metal Man (GM): Gibby.
Metal Man (GM): Gibby: STR check. 20% Earth Damage as you're hit by an avalanche. Next, he uses...
Spyke sees Gibby hit by an avalanche "Gibmeister!"
Gibby: *@_@* "Anybody get the number of that avalanche?"
Metal Man (GM): Garrick's M150, Lite version, on... Spyke.
Aribar: "Sorry... That attack's my fault, Gibbs!"
Metal Man (GM): 4 damage per hit.
Gibby: "It's ok..."
Spyke turns to face Kappa, in time to get Shot! ><
Gibby shakes the cobwebs.
Spyke is hit twice.
King Demon: "Sorry Gibbs, I was too busy avoiding him."
Gibby: "Enough with the apologies!"
King Demon: "Geez, looks like we're in for a long fight I guess..."
Garrick Fy`aar tries his hand with some dumdum rounds.
Spyke: "Not quite... I have one more trick up my sleeve..."
Metal Man (GM): Hit miss miss hit miss miss.
Gibby runs at Kappa, and whacks Kappa twice with the baseball bat.
Metal Man (GM): Ok... miss hit.
Gibby: *22% if hit.*
Charles Magellean comes back into arena. "G--g--guys! ...I'm back" *He huffs and heaves with breath.*
Gibby: "And where have YOU been?"
Charles Magellean: "Des---getting rid of the badge. Destroyed it."
Gibby: "Oh... well alright then."
Charles Magellean: "Now then..."
Spyke: "That's great! Now, let us take care of Kappa."
Charles Magellean lifts off the ground... He disappears and goes in front of kappa.
Metal Man (GM): Kappa dodges.
Charles Magellean: "Whoops..." *He reappears back. He begins to have swirly eyes... and begins to move his hands all around... command quirk!*
Metal Man (GM): You manage to command Kappa for one action.
Charles Magellean: "Whaaaat... shouuuld I dooo..."
Digifanatic: "Here we go... take 'em out, do something! Take Gibby's gun if he has it!"
Garrick Fy`aar: "...make him forget all the moves he knows."
Digifanatic: "Oh, that's better."
King Demon: "Command him to lose all of the abilities he copied!"
Gibby: "...MY gun! Yeah... erase all moves."
Spyke: "Yeah, what they said! Gibby, your gun was broken... Maybe we should have Kappa break his own?"
Digifanatic: "Alright, make him start from scratch..."
Charles Magellean: "...Kappa: Erase all probable data of scanned Quester weaknesses. Failure to comply, and destroy own railcannon."
Kappa: "...Command acknowledged... deleting... ...System Error: Chaos Emerald Reaction."
Metal Man (GM): Kappa begins sparking. http://www.vgmusic.com/music/console/sega/segacd/Cdtrk21.mid
Digifanatic gets a silent smiling going on... and a quick thumbs-up to Locos... so far.
Charles Magellean: "Whoops... maybe I should've had him eject the emeralds first to make him weak."
Kappa: "...System overload... unable to delete moves... new moves acquired. Chaos Emerald Abilities unlocked."
Metal Man (GM): He begins sparking. A new, darker voice can be heard...
Spyke: "... I don't know what was worse..."
King Demon: "... NOW you think of it Locos..."
Kappa: "Foolish mortal. You have only unlocked the evil of the emeralds onto me!"
Digifanatic: *The thumbs-up is quickly withdrawn.*
Charles Magellean: "Destroy own railcannon!"
Metal Man (GM): Kappa opens fire on Locos.
Spyke: "!! Locos, watch out!"
Kappa: "Destroy yourself!"
Gibby: "Looks like he's beyond control now."
Digifanatic: "That pest..."
Charles Magellean deflects the shots.
Kappa: "Main command controls overridden. Program files readjusted."
Digifanatic uses an X Accuracy and unloads a Fire Punch.
Kappa: "...Control has been returned to main unit."
Metal Man (GM): He's hit.
Metal Man: "What the heck? Take this, you messed up robot!" *He runs up and slashes the robot with two more ice slashes.*
Metal Man (GM): Two hits. 40% damage.
King Demon sighs and tries to Flame punch the malfunctioning robot.
Metal Man (GM): You... badly miss... drawing railcannon fire. Ouch. CRIT! 102% damage from the crit... 51% from any other hits. Demon loses a life as he's overkilled.
Spyke draws his gun, firing once, followed by an air trail, followed by an Air Render.
Gibby: "If... anybody has any plans, feel free to speak up."
Metal Man (GM): Hit hit. Hit.
Spyke: *28% wind.*
Metal Man (GM): Items appear. Maximum Tomato, Fan. Kappa smiles evilly as he grabs the Maximum Tomato.
Gibby: "...oh no way..."
Metal Man (GM): Then he fires off a WOLF CRUSH. Those hit take 49% damage.
Metal Man is hit. "Argh!"
Gibby gets hit.
Garrick Fy`aar is also hit.
Gibby: "GAH!!" *He gets back up.*
Garrick Fy`aar: "Grr..."
Metal Man (GM): Then he runs up and attacks Gibby with a slice and dice. 20 damage per hit.
Gibby gets hit twice.
Garrick Fy`aar growls as his muscles bulge. He growls lowly as he Overdrives! He spins his gun up, firing a massive amount of laser shots from the M150.
Metal Man (GM): All hit but one.
Kappa: "Now that you have awakened my true self, you have no chance!"
Gibby decides to focus on healing. He eats a mushroom for 15% HP, and then uses Froggie Drink to heal everyone else for 15% HP.
Metal Man heals himself with Crystal Purification, then runs at Kappa with an Ice Slash.
Metal Man (GM): 20% ice damage.
King Demon tries to fireball again.
Metal Man (GM): You once again attract the vengeance of the Railcannon. 51% per hit. And he's at... Yeah... that. New round. Items appear after Kappa.
Garrick Fy`aar: "Son of a..."
Metal Man (GM): Garrick is hit by Terrorbolt for 440% electric damage.
Garrick Fy`aar: *...automatically?*
Metal Man (GM): Then, he attacks everybody with a strafing laser. Whoever's left: SPD checks.
Garrick Fy`aar screams bloody murder as he's shocked till crispified.
Metal Man is hit.
Metal Man (GM): 20% damage if hit. Then he charges up. Two Metal Boxes appear. Oh yeah. Garrick comes back... so he gets 1 action. His OP is now one less than it was before. 20% damage to Demon.
Garrick Fy`aar returns, leaping and blasting dumdum rounds at him.
Metal Man (GM): You used three luckies, there. Two hits and a miss.
Gibby attacks Kappa with the bat twice.
Metal Man (GM): Hit miss.
Metal Man: "Hmmm... better continuing wearing him down." *He slashes the robot twice again.*
Metal Man (GM): CRIT hit... 60% total damage. Wow... if you could heal him one damage, he'd have 777. 9 8 7 6 5 4 3
King Demon fireballs the robot again, hoping to avoid the damn railgun.
Metal Man (GM): One of them actually hits! Kappa uses the fully charged gun to instantly hit Gibby three times for 51% damage each. Then he sits there and starts charging.
Kappa: "Chaos Emerald Feature Two online!"
Garrick Fy`aar: "Jeez..." *He blasts him with a full clip of fiery dumdum shots.*
Metal Man (GM): 3 hits... and he counters with the railgun after that crit miss. 51% per hit...
Gibby is dead.
Metal Man (GM): Items appear! Freezie... Party Ball... Maximum Tomato. Gibby returns. His turn. Note: You can 'hold on' to an item instead of using it right away if you feel like it.
Gibby grabs the Freezie, and throws it at Kappa.
Metal Man (GM): Hit! He's frozen solid.
Gibby then grabs the Max Tomato, and holds on to it.
Metal Man (GM): You only had one action... so you can't grab the tomato.
Metal Man: "Don't worry. He'll be dead soon!" *He grabs the tomato and holds onto it... then attacks with his random three crystal attack!*
Metal Man (GM): Lucky!
Metal Man hits the robot with a powerful electric attack that deals double damage against robots. 60 damage! "Finish him off!"
King Demon is back and tries to fireball again.
Metal Man (GM): Miss One more, of course. Hit!
Garrick Fy`aar: "Got 'im!"
Metal Man (GM): 20 fire damage... Kappa is melted out of the ice... heavily damaged.
Kappa: "Blast! I was so close to destroying you..."
King Demon thanks god that he didn't get railed again.
Kappa: "Chaos... CONTROL!"
Metal Man (GM): Kappa is surrounded by the three emeralds. Before you can do anything, he warps out. Everyone: List how many lives you have left. Locos: 2 Me: 3 Hmmm... so far, he's killed 5 people... I know he killed some more... who else (who's not here) got killed? ...Now, for EXP! Me: 1000 EXP for not dying once. Garrick, Aribar, Gibby, Locos: 500 EXP. Everybody else who was in the fight: 250 EXP. That and I forgot to give myself EXP last time I was in a mission.
Editor's Note: Good work, me! Being invincibly cheap is definitely an accomplishment to reward instead of punish!
Metal Man (GM): Digi: You get 250 EXP.
Charles Magellean can now...
Metal Man (GM): Hmmmm... Gibby, Garrick, and Digi are given 40, 20, and 69 EXP respectively.
Editor's Note: That last one had to be on purpose. I mean, c'mon.
Metal Man (GM): Just because it's neater to do it now than next time.
Gibby hugs Metal as he... *LEVELS UP.*
Digifanatic: *Levels up to 13*
Garrick Fy`aar: *LEVELS UP.*
Metal Man (GM): Since next time you'll be surrounded by robots shooting you. *LEVELS UP.*
Charles Magellean left the arena. He no longer whistles, but actually sings "We're in the money"
Metal Man (GM): And that ends the chapter 'Melee Matchup Mania!' ...But continue downtiming/RPing.
Gibby leaves the arena. He needs to find someone who can repair his gun.
Charles Magellean still cannot believe he has over 100K.
Metal Man (GM): GW is in his shop.
Gibby runs over to GW *...slowly.*
Digifanatic pulls out his Fire Tunic. "I'll leave this in my room for now..." He walks over to his room, leaves it in his clothes drawer, and walks back out. "Ah, maybe I'll keep my other stuff... I know a lot of people that can use a Haste Cube."
Garrick Fy`aar steps out of GW's place, having already lightened his wallet there. Two new badges adorn the inside of his jacket. He immediately starts to head toward Nova's place.
Charles Magellean tap tap taps at the current currency of the Nintendus IAF something.
Gibby sees Garrick, and walks up to him. "So Garrick, what'd you get?"
Garrick Fy`aar: "A few badges, might help. A HP Plus badge and a Power Smash badge."
Digifanatic: "Oh, that's good!"
Digifanatic: "I'd take the former but I don't have the money nor the BP nor the willingness to get rid of some of my current badges..."
Garrick Fy`aar pulls the M150 out and lines the sight, even though he knows it will always stay straight "My gun is already powerful, but with all the crap going on, a little bit extra always helps, ya know?"
Digifanatic: "You know, Mega Rush and Last Stand working good together... get rid of one and the other's not worth it... And I'd also have to remove Extend-O-Glove... I can't get rid of that for now. But nice picks, my man."
Gibby: "Do you think GW can repair my gun?" *He takes it out, and sighs.*
Digifanatic: "I think so."
Gibby: "Last time I try breaking a copy robot's gun..."
Digifanatic: "He seems to be very intuitive in that field."
Digifanatic: "Will money be an issue? I got 2600 worth if you need it."
Metal Man (GM): back
Mr. Game and Watch: "I can repair your gun."
Gibby: "Oh goody. I think I have enough money... maybe."
Garrick Fy`aar walks in, glancing at the lot of them.
Mr. Game and Watch: "That will be 3000 coins to repair."
Gibby: "Ouch... well, it's for the best."
Mr. Game and Watch: "Cheaper than buying a new one."
Gibby takes out a bag of 3000 coins, and hands it to GW along with the gun.
Mr. Game and Watch: *Sticks it in the 'fix-o-matic'*
Gibby: "I wouldn't want a new one anyway. Call me old fashioned."
Metal Man (GM): The item is blasted, the remains turning into dust... which then spins around in a tornado and reassembles into the original weapon. *DING!* It comes out, feeling a little toasty. He hands it back to you.
Metal Man (GM): It looks like it's in mint condition.
Mr. Game and Watch: "That also restores the value of it... you could sell it for full price."
Garrick Fy`aar: "...well, I think I'll go put the final touches on my own little device. I might be back soon."
Mr. Game and Watch: "Of course, you paid half of its worth to repair it, so the net return is the same."
Garrick Fy`aar turns and heads for the warp room, warping out and reappearing in Nova's place "Afternoon, Nova."
Gibby takes it, gets a feel for it, examines it for a minute, then spins it around his fin before putting it away.
Nova: "Hello Garrick."
Gibby: "No thanks. I'm keeping it."
Garrick Fy`aar: "Anything interesting to speak of?"
Nova: "Grunty's place has sent a transmission which I intercepted."
Gibby walks out.
Metal Man (GM): A transmission appears on Nova's screen.
Grunty: "...Kappa! Respond! You have been taken down... barely escaped... why are you heading towards those ruins?"
Metal Man (GM): Grunty is, interestingly enough, not rhyming.
Kappa: (Evil Voice) "My true master, the evil inside the chaos emeralds, commands me otherwise."
Garrick Fy`aar: "...she must really be upset, then..."
Kappa: "You will not hear from me again, witch."
Metal Man (GM): It ends there.
Nova: "There's something else..."
Metal Man (GM): Nova shows a video of Metal and Tridus inside Nova's power reactor... they're doing a spell, when they notice Kuja.
Garrick Fy`aar just remains silent, waiting.
Metal Man (GM): Metal's armor disappears from the spell, showing the human Metal. Then Metal and Tridus battle Kuja... actually drawing blood and keeping up with his attacks. The battle ends when a Terrorbolt hits Kuja outta nowhere. The video is also disrupted... it shows a blip with Aribar and Metal and Tridus leaving before cutting out.
Garrick Fy`aar: "...any damage to you?"
Nova: "My energy was used to give Metal back his true form... which was fair enough. However, Kuja was trying to use it for a mysterious purpose... I am undamaged. However, Kuja was trying to reroute power somewhere... he did improve the efficiency of my power core, but why? He was stopped from rerouting power by those two."
Garrick Fy`aar: "Do you know where he was rerouting power?"
Nova: "No. He was interrupted. All I have is the beginning of a Power reroute command, with comment 'Have Faith.'"
Garrick Fy`aar: "...I've got a hunch... do you know where those ruins are? That Kappa is going to?"
Nova: "Ruins? I don't know. His systems were protected by the Chaos Emeralds. ...Something... I just found... A video which was accidentally interposed with the video feed..." *Puts it on.*
Metal Man (GM): A picture of an old man, much like Robotnik, sitting behind a desk, is there.
???: "If you are reading this message, my backup plan has begun. An attempt to sabotage my secret weapon has activated a complex program... set up so that I can get... revenge... My robot... was even better than Shadow. Even Emerl cowered beneath its infinite power... But... GUN shut me down... they knew I was making a weapon of mass destruction, but overlooked it. They thought Project Shadow was the true weapon. I am almost out of time. The authorities have almost caught me. All of you... horrible people... who have threatened my life... will die. I will have my final revenge... and nothing will stop me!"
Metal Man (GM): It ends right there, with the man laughing.
Garrick Fy`aar: "...Nova, contact Ivan."
Metal Man (GM): *COMMLINK OPENED.*
Ivan Robotnik: "Yes? What is it?"
Garrick Fy`aar: "It's Garrick, Ivan. I need you to tell me something. Nova, pull up a picture of that man and show it to Mr. Robotnik."
Metal Man (GM): Ivan recoils when the image reaches him.
Ivan Robotnik: "...It's... it's GERALD! My father... ...Where did you get that? It's later than any photos I have seen."
Garrick Fy`aar: "It was interposed on a message I intercepted... Ivan, is he dead, because I don't think he is..."
Ivan Robotnik: "He's been dead for years. Executed on Saga for an attempt to destroy the world."
Garrick Fy`aar: "...I think we just found out who built Kappa."
Ivan Robotnik: "After his death, a program of his threatened the planet yet again... he would have been executed yet again. That's no secret, Garrick. He built many clones of the Phi robots he discovered. But what does this video have to do with Kappa?"
Garrick Fy`aar: "Kappa just went nuts, Ivan."
Ivan Robotnik: "Nuts? Why? He was being used for evil already... I doubt Grunty planned it..."
Garrick Fy`aar: "No, it wasn't Grunty. He's gone against her and abandoned her. He's headed for some ruin... I don't know where, he's signal is masked."
Ivan Robotnik: "It sounds like... it can't be... We destroyed all traces of his secret programs!"
Garrick Fy`aar: "Whatever it is, he says his 'true master, the evil inside the chaos emeralds' is waiting there for him."
Ivan Robotnik: "We even stopped one of his Phi robots from going mad and destroying the world as well..."
Garrick Fy`aar: "Or told him otherwise, sorry."
Ivan Robotnik: "...Then it is settled. One of Gerald's evil programs are on the loose. Expect all the trickery and power of a old man with chaos emeralds and a body of steel. The programs are well known for causing inanimate objects and even living things to take on the existence of Ivan Robotnik. ...He must be heading for chaos emeralds... but where? I can't detect any..."
Garrick Fy`aar: "...what about Saga?"
Ivan Robotnik: "It hasn't headed for Saga yet..."
Charles Magellean heads down towards Nova's. He wants to research more of the hyper emeralds.
Ivan Robotnik: "But, as was scheduled, you will have to deal with Grunty first."
Garrick Fy`aar: "She's still in her little castle, right?"
Ivan Robotnik: "...If little means the size of 10 football fields in all three dimensions, yes."
Metal Man (GM): Locos enters the room.
Nova: "Hello Locos."
Garrick Fy`aar: "...hmmm. Nova, do a scan on the castle blueprints. I want you to find any other way in besides the front doors. Ventilation ducts, windows, trap doors, anything."
Ivan Robotnik: "Be on the lookout for Kappa. Under the influence of Gerald, he will become a mindless killer, intent on mass destruction."
Nova: "I only have half of them, unfortunately."
Garrick Fy`aar: "Good enough, work on it."
Nova: "So... for the left side of the castle... I'm scanning it."
Ivan Robotnik: "Also, make sure that Kappa does not gain any more emeralds."
Charles Magellean gulps some coca-cola until he heard Gerald's name. Then he snorts it out and fiercely coughs.
Garrick Fy`aar looks to Locos "What do you want?"
Charles Magellean: "Di... di... DID YOU SAY PROFESSOR GERALD!??!"
Ivan Robotnik: "Each emerald will bring out more of Gerald... if all seven and the master emerald are gathered, chances are Gerald himself could be revived..."
Charles Magellean coughs ...
Ivan Robotnik: "Yes... my father has taken control of a Phi robot named Kappa."
Charles Magellean: "..."
Garrick Fy`aar: "...Locos, I need you to do something for me."
Ivan Robotnik: "Somebody tried to mind control it. That set off a hidden algorithm which activated the true plan of world destruction, made by Gerald shortly before the other two programs we all know and hate."
Charles Magellean: "Nova, contact bob."
Charles Magellean: "What it is, Garrick."
Bob, Lord of Electric Death: "Bob here. What is it, Nova... thingy?"
Ivan Robotnik: "...Bob? What a plain name."
Charles Magellean has much... fear in his eyes as he looks to Garrick.
Garrick Fy`aar gives Locos a dirty look. Who was he to start ordering his equipment around.
Bob, Lord of Electric Death: "Who's that in the other window?"
Ivan Robotnik: "That sounds like Ivo Robotnik... where is he?"
Bob, Lord of Electric Death: "I'm Bob, Lord of Electric Death! A cheap hologram."
Ivan Robotnik: "Why on Nintendus would anyone call you?"
Garrick Fy`aar: "...finish your conversation, I'll ask you afterwards."
Bob, Lord of Electric Death: "I have no clue."
Charles Magellean: "...Garrick, they'll be busy... You might wanna talk to me now."
Garrick Fy`aar: "I can wait."
Charles Magellean: "Bob... You told of that if I ever contacted you... that we would be in serious danger?"
Bob, Lord of Electric Death: "...Probably? What's the danger this time?"
Charles Magellean: "Professor Gerald Robotnik."
Bob, Lord of Electric Death: "...HIM?" *Gasps.*
Charles Magellean: "I'll need you to speed up the process of the teleportation progress."
Bob, Lord of Electric Death: "...If you thought I was bad, wait until you see what programs he has..."
Charles Magellean: "That is all."
Bob, Lord of Electric Death: "Well, it won't take long to come to Nintendus. You want me?"
Charles Magellean: "I need you to finish the warp field transmodifier. Nova can help me with the ends here. Good bye, Bob."
Garrick Fy`aar: "...Ivan, I'll contact you if I need more information. Garrick out. Nova, make sure you don't log this next conversation." *He turns to Locos.*
Charles Magellean: "Please speak... extreme composure is at a critical point."
Bob, Lord of Electric Death: "Okay."
Ivan Robotnik: "Alright."
Garrick Fy`aar: "Now, I want to tell you something, Locos. I want you to listen closely. Nova is free for anyone to get help from, but I'll be damned if your going to get on your little high horse and make another great army because you think you're right and everyone's wrong. I see where this is going, and I don't like it. Last time you started barking out orders, you turned against us and damn near killed us all."
Nova: "I am the one who makes decisions here, so neither of you have the right to order me around. The destruction of the enemy program and Grunty and Zio and the negation of Kuja is needed. I also always can use more of my modules back, as I am currently at 25% of my full abilities."
Charles Magellean: "I should ask next time. Sorry."
Nova: "...Make that 20%. I have stabilized the planet, but as usual, more modules are needed to fix the North and South poles completely."
Charles Magellean: "You see... if worse comes to worse..."
Nova: "The South Pole has collateral damage from an exploding base and no magnetic field, while this area has both magnetic fields fighting for dominance."
Charles Magellean: "...then I don't wanna be in the way and just wanna leave."
Garrick Fy`aar sighs.
Charles Magellean: "Hey, it's in case I someone tells me if I'm in the way!"
Nova: "Teleporter to the Second Moon has been opened. What do you wish to do with it?"
Garrick Fy`aar: "...well, there you go."
Charles Magellean: "Auuuhhh... ...standby?"
Garrick Fy`aar: "...Locos, we need you to stay here."
Nova: "It is on standby. Your soldiers on the Second Moon and Bob can be warped here if you need."
Garrick Fy`aar: "You're good in a fight. You know a ton of information we can use. You're a vital asset."
Nova: "In return for my power needed to hold the portal in, if I am attacked they will come to defend the portal. Is that reasonable?"
Charles Magellean: "Reasonable, understandable, and I don't even know why sol--oh right... the natural fauna and the monsters."
Nova: "The 'true' Magellean Military remains in existence on the Second Moon. A massive army of Machine-Mades, Koopas, and modified Eggrobos."
Charles Magellean: "...Well... they need to defend themselves against the various creatures on the moon."
Nova: "Commanded by Bob, they keep the planet safe... though news shows that Earth nearby has become rather barren. Just remember that, if things become highly difficult. Our new enemy list is as follows, in order of current priorities... also, the lower ones are more of a mysterious yet possibly hostile bunch."
Charles Magellean doesn't wanna even ask how Nova was able to pinpoint the quantum resonance of Charles's dimension.
Garrick Fy`aar: "...Locos, could I go to this second moon?"
Nova: "Grunty, Zio, Gerald Robotnik, Ganondorf, Bowser, Kuja, Matek."
Charles Magellean: "The homeworld of the Lunarians... the planet that used to be Mars and Jupiter. No one knows it more than I do. I would have to accompany you."
Garrick Fy`aar: "...I only want to get a look at Earth..."
Nova: "That can be done using the portal. Acquiring Second Moon telescope..."
Metal Man (GM): An image pops up.
Charles Magellean: "...The Earth... barren?"
Metal Man (GM): It shows a barren brown dustball, with a small lake where the Atlantic Ocean should be. A rim of green surrounds it... one large city is in the middle of the lake. The planet is surrounded by many HUGE satellites.
Garrick Fy`aar: "...what is that city?"
Metal Man (GM): There are very few clouds.
Charles Magellean wants to see this phenomenon.
Nova: "It is... named very simply. Savoria. Otherwise known as 'The Savior City.'"
Charles Magellean: "Odd. Yet... in every case, my priority is here."
Garrick Fy`aar: "...could you set up a warp to that city, Nova?"
Nova: "It has extensive databanks... it shows that a war of magic and technology burnt out all the cities and life on the planet, but a small area was spared. They speak a bizarre language."
Charles Magellean: "...The War of he Magi!?"
Nova: "Current databanks show that they are in between Locos's era and Metal's era. Affirmative. A war of that scale, at least."
Garrick Fy`aar: "I'll use the translation matrix add-on to the new Dex. I'd like to go there, Nova."
Charles Magellean: "...I will go as well."
Nova: "Going there is an additional difficulty to going to the second moon. You must use a spacecraft to get there."
Garrick Fy`aar walks over to a large metal case set on the table. He reaches inside and pulls out two watches, two very small little pill like things, and two bandages.
Charles Magellean: "...I want to know what is going on on Earth in my dimension."
Garrick Fy`aar: "Come here, Locos."
Charles Magellean comes.
Garrick Fy`aar: "Tilt your head up."
Charles Magellean: "...?" *He does so.*
Garrick Fy`aar takes one of the bandages and pulls the backing off, placing it right on Locos' Adams Apple. He'd feel a small buzzing, nothing unpleasant, and then nothing. He hands him one of the pills. "Put that in your ear."
Charles Magellean: "...What is all this for?"
Garrick Fy`aar: "It's the next generation of the Dex. Blows the old one out of the water."
Charles Magellean takes the pills and places them at the top of his ears and outta sight.
Garrick Fy`aar places the second bandage on his own Adam's Apple, then applies the small pills. He hands Locos one of the digital watches, then slips his own onto his wrist.
Metal Man walks in with a freaky blue dex. "Hi guys."
Garrick Fy`aar: "We won't need the CRSes. Not unless we encounter some monsters there."
Charles Magellean's skin absorbs what is on his Adam's apple... or rather... the bandaged area has new skin forming over it.
Metal Man: "New... dex thingies, eh? What a coincidence!"
Charles Magellean: "Metal... you would be interested to come."
Metal Man: "Sure I would... good time to test out my new dex. Oak made it."
Digifanatic gets a signal in his room to come to Nova's. He does so.
Charles Magellean: "The Earth of my dimension just had a scale similar to the war of the Magi."
Digifanatic: "Hey guys, what's going on?"
Garrick Fy`aar: "...is anyone else coming, then?"
Metal Man presses a button. The elaborate thing unfolds to show a mass of buttons. "Gibby would die of a heart attack if he saw this."
Charles Magellean: "Only a city within the Atlantic ocean is there."
Garrick Fy`aar: "Digi, I take it your coming too? Come here, then."
Digifanatic: "Alright." *He heads over to Garrick.*
Charles Magellean: "...And it's technology is between the eras of yours and mine."
Garrick Fy`aar hands Digi a small bandage, a little pill, and a digital watch.
Digifanatic: "A city in the Atlantic Ocean? That's not the Earth I know of..."
Garrick Fy`aar: "Bandage goes on the Adam's Apple, pill in the ear, watch is obvious."
Digifanatic: "I come from the 21st century... right, Gar."
Charles Magellean: "The Earth is barren in my quantum universe."
Garrick Fy`aar: "...well, I'll take the CRSes just in case. Locos, you ever use contacts before?"
Digifanatic places the bandage on his Adam's apple, the pill in the ear, and straps the watch on his right hand.
Charles Magellean: "CRS?"
Garrick Fy`aar: "I'll explain in a bit. Here."
Digifanatic: "Yeah, what are those?"
Garrick Fy`aar hands Locos and Digi a pair of contact lens cases. One for each eye.
Charles Magellean: "I already wear contacts."
Garrick Fy`aar: "Not like these."
Editor's Note: *Gets mental image of Charles placing contacts on top of his contacts*
Digifanatic: "Whoa dude..."
Garrick Fy`aar: "Put them in, already. Might as well do the whole deal."
Editor's Note: OH MY GOD HE'S ACTUALLY SUGGESTING THAT
Charles Magellean: "I can't wear more than one pair. I am ...farsighted."
Garrick Fy`aar: "Trust me, these will work."
Editor's Note: WHAT
Digifanatic puts the contacts in.
Metal Man: "...I may be outnumbered by these new, weird objects, but it should still be an interesting competition."
Garrick Fy`aar: "Just slip them in over the ones your wearing."
Editor's Note: WHY
Charles Magellean does so... they fit exactly over them... completely invisible to his old!
Garrick Fy`aar takes out a case for himself and places them in his own eyes "Repeat after me, you two. The Rain in Spain stays Mainly on the Plain."
Editor's Note: ARE YOU SERIOUS
Digifanatic: "Wow... these feel pretty good. Now, Garrick, why are we doing this?"
Editor's Note: I'm asking the same question, Digi. But I think we'll never know.
Charles Magellean: "The rain in Spain stays mainly on the Plain."
Garrick Fy`aar: "Just say it, Digi..."
Digifanatic: "The Rain in Spain stays mainly on the plain."
Garrick Fy`aar: *BEEEEEP A soft voice emanates in each of your ears*
???: "Full name, please."
Charles Magellean: "Charles L. Magellean."
Digifanatic: "Ian Hoffman. Alias Digifanatic."
???: "Thank you."
Charles Magellean: "All right people... these are the beasts we have to avoid if we encounter them on the moon: Grenades, Juclyotes, Procyotes, Mooncells, and Puddings."
Garrick Fy`aar (GM): With that, the watches on your wrists mold slightly and turn into quarter length arm wristbands, each one with a few buttons and a small 'eyepiece' sorta thing
Editor's Note: ???????????????????
Digifanatic: "Whoa, this is some nice stuff."
Charles Magellean: "It is. Now we must leave as soon as possible."
Metal Man (GM): The warp is open in the main room.
Metal Man: "Super Dex. Activate!"
Garrick Fy`aar (GM): You also hear a sort Windows starting up noise in your ears. Your eyes, however, are the real deal. A readout pops up right in front of them, saying "Thank you for using the Smash Dex Mark 5."
Editor's Note: AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH IT'S WINDOWS IN YOUR EARS
Charles Magellean: "Puddings are resistant to weapons, the cyrotes look like dryers and are highly poisonous..."
Super Dex: "Monitoring enabled."
Garrick Fy`aar: "We'll deal with that as we go. Let's get moving, shall we?"
Charles Magellean: "...The mooncells come in numbers, do not use fire on the grey-like bombs, and the worms absorb health."
Metal Man: "Let'sa go!" *He runs into the portal.*
Garrick Fy`aar heads for the portal as well, explaining to Locos and Digi.
Charles Magellean walks into it.
Digifanatic enters the port.
Garrick Fy`aar: "Everything is voice activated. Scanning, messaging, everything. Readouts come through the contacts. No one but you can hear the sound in your ears."
Metal Man (GM): *EL Warp* The group of Earthlings or semi-Earthlings arrive at Bob's command center. Location: The Second Moon.
Charles Magellean (GM): You appear before the Lunarian homeworld. There are craters everywhere. There are ruined diamond buildings. The only thing that is standing alone is one palace. It stands in the air.
Digifanatic: "Hmm... so this is where you're from, Locos?"
Charles Magellean: "Yes. This was... once a great utopia before Zemus waged war."
Digifanatic: "Who's Zemus?"
Charles Magellean: "A terrible Lunarian with psychic powers... his power is unmatched by any others. His armies consisted of a lot of beasts, including the dreaded and most feared of them all... the Behemoth."
Bob, Lord of Electric Death: "Greetings."
Digifanatic: "Oh... Hello, Mr. Robotnik."
Garrick Fy`aar: "Doctor." *He nods.*
Bob, Lord of Electric Death: "As you can see, this humble one-room building of mine and the nearby tents are all we have."
Digifanatic: "Doctor, sorry."
Garrick Fy`aar: "I don't think we'll be staying long. We need a ship down to the planet..." *He looks a little worse for the wear. This is kinda getting to him, it seems.*
Charles Magellean: "Bob... has anything taken place up here?"
Digifanatic: .oO(If this is Earth and its Second Moon centuries ahead of my future... what's happened to the Digital World?)
Bob, Lord of Electric Death: "Nothing of notice. The hibernating Lunarians are still stuck that way."
Charles Magellean: "Have any of the underground enemies attacked you?"
Bob, Lord of Electric Death: "We had to fight the occasional monster, but they seem to have left us alone. The only thing of interest is... well, nothing. We do have a space craft, though."
Bob, Lord of Electric Death: "The EggShuttle. It can go back and forth with little effort. Because it's powered by a chaos emerald."
Charles Magellean: "A saga emerald or an earth one?"
Digifanatic: "Chaos Emerald... then can't it turn into Gerald's form?"
Charles Magellean: "Professor Gerald is the least of my worries right now. The city in the Atlantic is what I'm focused on."
Digifanatic: "Okay." *He lightly rubs his forehead.* "Well then, is there anything else important that we need to know before board the Shuttle."
Bob, Lord of Electric Death: "Don't touch anything... it will autopilot."
