Super Smash Quest - Story - Chapter 168: Super Sonic Questing
Date: 12:17:21 PM, March 19th, 2005.
Aribar buys 9 Green Potions... He then heads back to his room. (I'd like to see anyone else spend 5400 coins so easily.)
Metal Man walks about, a sort of disturbance in his mind. He constantly 'hmmms' and grips his chin as he wanders about.
Aribar stops and spins about about halfway to his room... The elf heads towards the holorooms... He shall not continue the Bottomless Dungeon of Doom (+1), but work on... Journey Quest! Something more challenging, the elf hopes.
Metal Man stands facing the garden, a look of being lost in his eyes. He continues thinking.
Aribar mumbles aloud, "Before the end of the day I shall devise something that will destroy those pitiful Questers!"
Digifanatic enters the elevator to ground level, walks over to G&Ws, buys one X Accuracy, and walks over to his room.
Aribar chuckles to himself and heads to the holorooms.
Metal Man: "Something is wrong somewhere. This cannot be. Locos is back. Evil just kind of fizzled out before my eyes. Kuja helped us again. And I remain confused as to why these things are happening."
Digifanatic rings up Metal on his Dex. "Metal? Ya there?"
Metal Man: "Locos was far away, out of his mind... Grunty and Zio were just about to crush Nintopi--!?" *He opens the dex.* "Hello Digi. What can I do for you?"
Digifanatic: "Ah, hey. I heard rumors and stuff from others about Locos and stuff... what exactly has been going on?"
Metal Man: "I have no clue."
VG makes his way slowly to G&W's store... he probably is going to need extra stuff.
Digifanatic: "I know... the guy is odd."
Metal Man: "Something seems wrong. There has to be something wrong with the way things are going."
Digifanatic: "Yeah. This place has never been quite as odd."
Metal Man: "It's too easy. Too easy. Only Kuja appears to not crumble underfoot, and he's gone into hiding yet again."
Digifanatic: "You can never tell with villains."
Metal Man: "The world is devoid of villains at the moment, since there is no reading of Kuja, Gerald, or Doopliss... Zio has gone into hiding or been killed. Grunty... is missing, but probably unable to do anything."
Digifanatic: "That is weird. Maybe they all went hiding on some other planet or something to conjure up some doomsday thing."
Metal Man: "That reminds me."
Digifanatic: "And I doubt Zio has been killed."
Metal Man: "Today is the alignment of Saga and Nintendus. The coincidence is killing me! I mean... all of this crumbles just in time for the alignment of the planets."
Digifanatic: "They probably got ported off to Saga, then... By said kawinkydink."
Wolfman is probably somewhere at Sick Bay.
Digifanatic: "Alright Metal, I'll be in my room."
Metal Man: "Ah, yes."
Digifanatic enters his room. He "hangs up".
Garrick Fy`aar is currently in the stadium, looking around for his so-called "charge", Ganondorf.
Metal Man (GM): You quickly find him, due to a mysterious link you have with his location. He's in R&R.
Ganondorf: "Hello, Garrick."
Garrick Fy`aar: "Hey, Ganondorf... erm... could I talk with you?"
Ganondorf: "I have all the time in the world to talk."
Garrick Fy`aar: "...you're a wizard, right? Of some type?"
Ganondorf: "A dark wizard. The best of them all. Zio is merely a puppet, while I am power and wizard combined."
Garrick Fy`aar: "...do you think you could... teach me some stuff?"
Ganondorf: "Teach you powers of darkness? Perhaps. It takes great hatred and usually someone who seems to always be thwarting you to focus."
Garrick Fy`aar: "Well, the way I see it, fight fire with fire, right? Maybe if I had even a idea what it was like, I could find some way to counter it. I mean, I'm a gunner. Just a gunner. I want to be more well rounded... more powerful. A better asset to the Questers. I'm not looking to go out and kill a whole bunch of innocents... just enough so I can maybe have a backup or a hidden weapon for Kuja."
Ganondorf: "You must be careful, though. Kuja is also a mage, and a being of impossible power. My own darkness is a candle to his inferno. He is not human."
Garrick Fy`aar: "He's a monkey, is what he is... a girly monkey." *He hmpfs, folding his arms over his chest.*
Ganondorf: "However... a stepping stone helps you cross the river."
Garrick Fy`aar: "So... could you teach me a few things?"
Ganondorf: "He is equally effected by powers of all types; the only thing which makes him special is the extreme, horrible power. Yes."
Garrick Fy`aar nods, smiling a bit "Great. Well, whenever you have the time or the gumption, come find me... this... weird link we have probably will lead you to me."
VG decides to change his mind... he goes to the Arena to watch whatever match is currently going on.
Metal Man (GM): No match is going on; a party is, instead. It seems like the evil is gone, and that everyone feels it should be rightfully celebrated.
VG: .oO(...we took out the evil? But... that can't be...) *He goes down to get a closer look.*
Garrick Fy`aar leaves Ganondorf with that... who would have thought, huh? Him asking that dark guy for help. He glances toward the stadium as he passes by a doorway into it... and sees this 'party'. He arches an eyebrow and strolls toward it.
VG: .oO(I still can't believe that there is a party here...)
Metal Man (GM): The party appears to be a simple one; the current battle season is over, and the winner was Link. The various smashers are chatting, having some food, dancing, etc.
Garrick Fy`aar steps out a bit, stopping VG with a hand.
VG: "So these guys can have fun... yes Garrick?"
Garrick Fy`aar: "...just leave them be. This is a party for the smashers, not us. Wouldn't be right just to walk in on them uninvited."
Aribar works hard in the holoroom programming on the console... The elf asks SIMBER for help every once in a while, and laughs as he thinks of new horrors to pit his allies up against.
VG: "...but... aren't we the ones that kind of take over the hero work?"
Metal Man (GM): You see one of the serving people glance at you. He has blonde hair, and thick coke-bottle glasses. He's serving various drinks.
VG gets a look around at the people... He notes that someone is trying to get his attention... a server guy?
Metal Man (GM): Samus actually has her helmet off. After all, you can't eat food with a helmet on. The serving guy wanders off to the kitchens to get some more drinks.
VG has a strange suspicion... Smasher party, but some other guy with drinks? He goes to the kitchen to investigate.
Metal Man (GM): You go towards the kitchen. The man is stocking drinks up.
VG can't believe he's going to do this... he scans the guy with his smash dex in Text Mode. .oO(I'm starting to feel like a spy now...)
Smash Dex: (Text Mode) 'Mysterious Man W/Glasses Dex: He is a server hired to cater the smasher party.'
VG: .oO(...hired by whom?)
Smash Dex: 'He looks a bit out of place, but why cannot be deciphered without talking to him in person.'
VG puts the dex away.
Garrick Fy`aar leans against one of the entrances to the stadium, glancing out at the party. He was having some weird ideas too. This... didn't seem right.
VG goes into the kitchen to get a drink... ah, Goomba Gatorade.
Metal Man (GM): He looks at you.
VG still has the bottle out. "Hello... want some?"
Server: "Hello. ...No thanks. I'm busy. Though I could have gotten that drink for you."
VG: "It's alright; I'm used to getting many things on my own. What's your name?"
Garrick Fy`aar: "...Dex, wide range scan. Check for anything out of the ordinary."
Server: "I'm... uhhh... George Cain. Your name?"
Smash Dex: "No anomalies detected."
VG: .oO(Hesitance...?) "Double O Toad here."
George Cain: "Double... oh... Toad? What? What an odd name. Well, I must go serve the guests--errr... party people."
VG: "I would consider a last name of Cain to be odd myself."
Metal Man (GM): George starts walking back to the party.
Garrick Fy`aar looks from Smasher to Smasher, glancing to Samus, then Mario, then Link. He played the shadows like the expert he was.
George Cain: "Follow me if you want to chat."
VG: "Ok." *He walks with him... but somewhat behind him.*
Metal Man (GM): George walks down a servant service hallway.
Garrick Fy`aar: "...why do I feel so odd about this situation..."
Metal Man (GM): He calmly balances the tray with drinks with one hand.
VG: "You certainly are good at this."
George Cain: "It's been my family's business. My father did it, and his father too. We've been doing it for many years."
VG: "Who hired you to help with this anyway, if you don't mind me asking? I haven't really heard of you."
George Cain: "Master hand, of course! The Smashers paid for it. It's an honor to be here, whatever your real name is."
VG: "Likewise." .oO(On both accounts.)
Metal Man (GM): You reach the party. He begins serving drinks.
Garrick Fy`aar: "...Dex, keep the scanning field open. This doesn't feel right."
Metal Man (GM): Garrick: You see VG following that blonde server person.
VG: .oO(I don't think that is George Cain...)
George Cain: "Nothing like hanging out with celebrities."
VG: .oO(But who could he be? Why would a server have to hesitate to recall his own name?)
George Cain: "Even if I am serving them drinks."
VG: "Perhaps one day you can actually be a real celebrity."
George Cain: "Me? Oh, nah. I'm just fine. I hate it when people pay too much attention to me."
VG: "So you don't want to create the world's greatest pop?"
George Cain: "This is honest work, here. I'm not tricking anyone. Of course not. I've got my health, my job, and my house."
VG: "And your life it seems."
Garrick Fy`aar pushes away from the wall, making his way into the party. He glances to the George Cain person, taking a bottle of water from a nearby table, popping it open, and drinking. He stood away from the real party, just on the border. He did his best to stay unnoticed... but with these guys, that wouldn't be long.
George Cain: "Of course."
VG: "Do you know where you plan on serving next?"
George Cain: "Why, at Dr. Ivan's party! There's parties everywhere now that the bad guys are beaten."
Garrick Fy`aar overhears that comment. He chuckles.
VG: "Do you think you need help with some of this? It sounds like a lot of parties." .oO(I don't think all of them are beaten)
George Cain: "Well, looks like I need to get some more drinks. Oh, me, help? Well, you could help me if you wanted."
Metal Man (GM): George Cain begins making the next round to the kitchen for more drinks.
VG: "..." .oO(He wouldn't even let me ask how I could help... How can I help without being told how to help?)
Garrick Fy`aar walks up to VG, placing a hand on his shoulder "Hey, VG. How ya doing? Do you have a odd feeling about this too?"
Metal Man (GM): George has reached the kitchen now, and is refilling drinks.
VG: "I'm alright." "Yeah, I just don't know what."
Garrick Fy`aar: "I've scanned... haven't gotten anything... but I've got an odd feeling about this... tell me, who hired that server?"
VG: "Master Hand At least, that's what he said."
Garrick Fy`aar: "...doesn't the winner of the tournament fight Master Hand?"
VG: "...yeah... Perhaps Link already fought him?"
Garrick Fy`aar: "...let's go chat with the Hero of Time, shall we?"
VG: "Good idea." He lets Garrick lead on.
Garrick Fy`aar motions and walks up to the green clad hero.
Link: "Hello, Garrick. Your item has been most useful to me."
Garrick Fy`aar: "I was just about to ask you how it was faring you."
Link: "I used it to defeat a strange orange ogre that was attacking Kokiri village."
Link: "I was lucky that I had it..."
Garrick Fy`aar: "No, you were skilled. You beat me for it."
Link: "So then. How's it going?"
VG lets Garrick say this one.
Garrick Fy`aar: "As best as it can be... oh, hey, congratulations on winning the tournament."
Link: "Thank you. It was a long and hard battle, for sure."
Garrick Fy`aar: "You fought Master Hand to win it all, right?"
Link: "Of course!"
VG: "Did Crazy Hand try to interfere?" *He couldn't watch the fight.*
Link: "No. Instead, Master Hand gained a mechanized suit! It was fantastically strong."
Garrick Fy`aar: "Huh, that's a new one... hey, what's Master Hand like?"
VG: .oO(New suit? Strange...)
Garrick Fy`aar: "Must be somewhat nice to hire that server guy."
Link: "He's a bit inquisitive at times. He hired a catering company, who subcontracted their work to several roaming serving people."
VG has the heke-look... he didn't really get that.
Garrick Fy`aar: "I wouldn't mind talking with Master Hand sometime... I haven't even seen him since I came here."
Link: "He's in Wolfman's office."
Aribar hrms, distracted from his work... The elf seems to have something bothering him... Aribar saves the data and exits the holoroom.
VG: "Don't you mean... former office?"
Garrick Fy`aar: "Maybe I'll talk to him then. See what he's like. Later, Link."
Metal Man (GM): Link nods and goes back to whatever he was doing.
Garrick Fy`aar turns and heads toward Wolfman's office, hoping that VG is following him.
VG follows.. oO(I knew that Master Hand wanted to be a secretary... but still...)
Garrick Fy`aar walks up to the Wolfman's office, stopping at the door. He ponders if this is a good idea... then he shrugs it off. It's not like the guy is going to attack as soon as he walks in. He knocks on the door a few times.
VG stays away from the door at first... just in case the new office is armed.
Metal Man (GM): Master Hand is calmly arranging files.
Master Hand: "Hello."
Aribar heads to his room and gathers all of his supplies while storing the holoroom book and a disk under his bed. The elf then wanders towards the warproom.
Garrick Fy`aar: "...you're Master Hand?"
VG: "Hello... why aren't you at the party?"
Master Hand: "I have to file the bills! They always come in. It's my new hobby."
VG: .oO(Now where have I heard that one before...)
Garrick Fy`aar: "..." .oO(...well, I didn't expect this.)
VG: "I'm sure the bills can wait for a few hours."
Master Hand: "But... the bills need to be done. I was just at the party a while ago."
VG: "At least you took care of that. Anyway, we have a concern... The drink server you hired... a 'George Cain'...well, he seems off to us."
Master Hand: "He's just an average human from Eisnaught."
Garrick Fy`aar lets VG take this one. He would be kinda more friendly to Master Hand than him...
VG: "Well, when I asked him his name... he hesitated. I'd figure most people would be prompt about it."
Master Hand: "He was busy, you know... kind of like I am."
Garrick Fy`aar: "Yes, sorry to trouble you." *He grabs VG by the arm and drags him away.*
VG: "Thanks aga--" *He is dragged.*
Master Hand: "You're welcome."
Aribar steps into the warp room and looks about... He calls upon SIMBER. "SIMBER? Are you here?"
Garrick Fy`aar: "We're getting too paranoid, VG. Just let it go."
VG: "But the Smash Dex said something was off with him."
Aribar: "Do you happen to have the coordinates to Klumsy's old holotomb? ... I want to check it out."
Smash Dex: "Garrick appears to have something off with him as well."
SIMBER: "I do, yes."
VG: "It said he was out of place."
Garrick Fy`aar: "If something happens, I'm sure the Smashers could handle it."
Aribar: "Could you load them up? And... Ummm... If the Questers ask where I'm at... Just say I'm having tea and biscuits with... Umm... Bob. Yeah."
Metal Man (GM): The lights suddenly flicker.
VG: "...very well. Well, I'm going to my room..." *Yawns* "I think I need to catch up on sleep..." *He notes the lights flickering.*
SIMBER: "...Unknown event has occ---"
Metal Man (GM): The lights then go out.
VG notes the lights go out.
Metal Man (GM): The doors start locking.
Garrick Fy`aar: "...maybe I was right. Dex, activate night vision."
Metal Man (GM): You hear explosions. The dex is dead. It doesn't respond.
Aribar attempts to leap out of the holoroom before the door closes. The elf also unsheaths Moonlight.
Metal Man (GM): The place is silent after the fourth explosion.
Garrick Fy`aar: "...this is not good."
VG gets a little jumpy with the explosions. "You're telling me!"
Garrick Fy`aar draws his gun and starts moving, using his remembrance of the hallways to find his way back to the stadium floor.
Metal Man (GM): You go to the stadium floor.
Aribar starts heading towards the entrance of the stadium, a spell already on his lips in case he has trouble.
Metal Man (GM): Everyone is asleep. You all join up there... the area is full of sleeping Smashers.
VG follows Garrick.
Garrick Fy`aar: "Crap... let's try this..."
Metal Man (GM): Garrick starts feeling a little tipsy himself.
Garrick Fy`aar: .oO(...whoa... out... out now!)
Aribar: "What happened?!"
Garrick Fy`aar rushes to get off the stadium floor.
VG: "...Garrick, silly question, but did you have anything to drink from that guy?"
Garrick Fy`aar: "Just some water..."
Metal Man (GM): Garrick: You can easily move where you want, but you're feeling more and more tired.
Garrick Fy`aar: .oO(...Ganondorf... GANONDORF!)
Metal Man (GM): You hear another explosion nearby.
VG: .oO(Garrick... next time, I'm getting you Goomba Gatorade)
Metal Man (GM): Ganondorf does, indeed, run in... with Grodus's head impaled on his right arm.
Ganondorf: "Robots that look like this are invading."
Aribar: "Okay..." *The elf flinches as he hears the explosion.* "...We've been betrayed... Or somethi--- ...What?!"
VG: "Ganondorf... how come you aren't asleep like the Smashers?"
Aribar: "You're joking! You have to be!"
Ganondorf: "The security systems have been set to trap anyone, even Mewtwo, from stopping them. I'm the only one who hasn't been trapped."
Garrick Fy`aar: "...jeez... please... need... some coffee..."
Ganondorf: "These robots are going to attack us soon."
Aribar: "...We cannot defeat them!"
Metal Man (GM): Another, HUGE explosion is heard.
Aribar: "Just a single one almost took out all of the Questers!"
Garrick Fy`aar slowly falls to one knee, trying to wake himself up...
Metal Man (GM): Several dead robots fly into the room. Metal flies in. Yes. Flies. With blue wings.
Aribar: "...Metal! We have to get out of here! Abandon the Stadium!"
Metal Man: "Hey guys! A couple thousand Groduses just decided to play with me!"
Wolfman is still conked out at Sick Bay... definitely can't do anything right now...
Metal Man: "No! We must find the person who did this!"
Garrick Fy`aar: "...lit... little... little... help..."
Metal Man: "If we leave, they will take the stadium!"
VG: "Abandon?!? Wolfman would kill you before abandoning this place!"
Garrick Fy`aar falls to both knees now...
Metal Man points his wands at two of the doors out. They're blasted shut.
Aribar attempts to help Garrick up.
Metal Man: "That will buy us time... Garrick? Oh... he tried that potion on you. Luckily, I'm not too late. CRYSTAL PURIFICATION!"
VG: "...potion? You mean the water he drank was potion?"
Aribar: "Metal, I suggest you do that on all of the smashers."
Metal Man (GM): Garrick is surrounded by blue light. He suddenly awakes, his eyes fully open.
VG: "...and the drinks that the Smashers had were potions?"
Metal Man: "Too late for them."
Garrick Fy`aar gets back to his feet, growling lowly.
Metal Man: "The potion can only be stopped before the person falls asleep."
Garrick Fy`aar: "VG, find that server."
Metal Man: "Otherwise, they're out for an entire day."
VG: "If the Dexes were working, I'd do so."
Garrick Fy`aar: "Ari, you go with him. Metal, let's you and me go greet those robots."
VG: "...ah forget it. Ari, we're going to the kitchen."
Aribar heads over to Veegee. "Alright... You need a weapon, or do you have everything you need?"
VG starts going to the kitchen. He adjusts his hat. "This will do."
Metal Man: "Okay... well, for your information, the doors to the kitchen are sealed."
Metal Man (GM): http://www.vgmusic.com/music/console/sony/ps1/ff9finalbattle%282%29.mid
Metal Man: "I shall unseal them for you."
VG: "Thank you."
Metal Man flies over to the sealed doors, and blasts them open. A way to the kitchen is unveiled.
VG takes "a way" to the kitchen.
Aribar dashes through the opening... This is going to be a tough night.
Metal Man (GM): You get to the kitchen. No one is there.
Garrick Fy`aar: "Let's go take out some of those robots, Metal."
Aribar: "Now what, Veege?"
Metal Man: "No. They are too strong, Garrick. I must save my energy for whoever did this."
VG: "We need to find some sort of potion or chemical."
Metal Man looks through various places... even the stove. "Where did he go? He isn't in the toaster oven either!"
VG: "Anything that looks out of place for a kitchen..."
Aribar checks the fridge.
Metal Man (GM): You see a whole bunch of those drinks.
VG looks in the cupboards.
Metal Man (GM): VG: you see silverware.
VG: "Aribar, is my Goomba Gatorade still in the fridge?"
Aribar: "Uhhh..." *Checks.*
Metal Man (GM): The aforementioned Gatorade is in there... but so is a whole lot of those potions.
Aribar: "Yup, and a bunch of potions..."
Metal Man continues looking.
VG: "...potions?!?" *He goes to the fridge.*
Metal Man: "Darn! There's only garbage in this can!"
Aribar: "I think so." *He moves over to give Veegee a better view.*
VG gets a look... well I'll be... "...I knew something was up with him."
Garrick Fy`aar: "We need to get moving. Where did you pop out before with that guy, VG?"
VG: "We came out of the kitchen... then, he went back in here, you got me, then everyone went asleep."
Metal Man (GM): You look inside the fridge... You see all the normal stuff, plus those potions.
Garrick Fy`aar: "But you kinda popped up from a different part of the stadium area..."
Metal Man: "He's not in the sink either!"
VG: "Metal, stop looking for this guy in any space smaller than a standard TV screen."
Garrick Fy`aar looks for that service hallway that VG and that server took up to the stadium floor.
VG: "...oh yeah; I forgot about that... We took a Service Hallway up."
Metal Man (GM): You see it, indeed. It's all locked down as well.
VG: "...THAT'S where we need to go."
Metal Man then starts eating some toast.
Garrick Fy`aar: "Little help on this, Metal?"
Metal Man: "Well, the toast isn't bad. I mean... sure." *He runs up to a door and peels it open.*
VG: .oO(...I think I liked the old Metal better.)
Metal Man (GM): You can see inside the service hallway.
Garrick Fy`aar heads down it, gun out and cocked, looking for that guy...
Aribar heads down it.
Metal Man (GM): You look around... the area is deadly silent.
Metal Man follows.
Garrick Fy`aar: .oO(...where are you, you little idiot...)
Metal Man (GM): You finally see... a glowing... rainbow-colored door.
Metal Man: "Wow! A psychedelic door!"
VG looks around for something... huh? "...Does anyone else feel like this is a trap?"
Garrick Fy`aar: "Not a trap, a way out."
Aribar: "...I've heard about things like this before..."
Garrick Fy`aar: "Get a man inside, drug the smashers, attack the stadium with those Grodus robots... then the mole gets out..."
VG: "Shall we enter then?"
Garrick Fy`aar: "Yeah, let's go." *He opens the door...*
Aribar: "...You first!"
VG: "Scared Ari?"
Aribar backs up, hoping this door isn't a Prismatic one...
Metal Man (GM): The door reveals a swirling rainbow-colored vortex.
Metal Man: "...That looks seriously scary."
Garrick Fy`aar: "...we haven't got another choice. Let's move." *He steps into it.*
Aribar: "If my fears hold true whoever touches it... Or that vortex... Is pretty much dead."
VG follows Garrick... item guy in the middle so he can help easily. "Then I'll see you at the next life." *He touches it and steps into it.*
Metal Man (GM): Garrick and VG seem to instantly dematerialize and explode.
Metal Man: "...Uhhh..."
Aribar: "I am not touching that thing!"
Metal Man: "...I'm not sure if I want to either..."
Aribar: "...Fire Elemental Blast!" *He hopes he remembers what he is suppose to do... The elf fires fire at the vortex. He looks to see if that did anything.*
Metal Man (GM): The attack engulfs the door... suddenly explodes as well... it looks like it went somewhere.
Metal Man: "...What should we do?"
Aribar looks to see if the red portion of the vortex is there. "..."
Ganondorf: "Aribar. The door is safe. I detect Garrick's presence on the other side of it."
Aribar: "Gah! Don't sneak up at me like that... ...Well, I guess it isn't a Prismatic Sphere then..."
Garrick Fy`aar: .oO(...Ganondorf... can you hear me?)
Ganondorf: "Sorry. I'm prone to sneaking up on people."
Aribar heads through the vortex.
Metal Man follows, as well as Ganondorf.
Metal Man (GM): Everybody appears in a green, rather grassy area.... VG and Garrick are hit by that fire elemental blast.
Aribar: "...Gah! Sorry!"
Metal Man (GM): They both take 35% fire damage.
Garrick Fy`aar: "...Ari..." *He pats out the damage, slightly miffed.*
Ganondorf: "This was a prismatic sphere, actually."
Aribar: "Heal!" *He casts Minor Healing on both of them twice... Both are fully healed.*
VG somehow doesn't feel a thing.
Ganondorf: "This is another dimension."
Aribar: "...I guess not like the ones back home..."
Metal Man: "Whaaaaat? Impossible! Who could do that besides us?"
VG: "...think you can watch it next time we go into the next life?"
Metal Man (GM): You see something up ahead. A fight.
Aribar looks at Metal. "Us? You mean your people?"
Metal Man: "Yes... my people and the Questers."
VG sees... a fight?
Metal Man: "The warp room can do this, too."
VG: "Guys, something is going on."
Metal Man: "It's just never been tested."
VG goes towards this fight.
Garrick Fy`aar tries to get a good look at who's fighting, walking a bit toward it.
Metal Man (GM): VG: You see... a blue blur and a large machine...
Dr. Robotnik: "I'll get you for this, Sonic!"
VG: "...Sonic?!? It's been a while since I've seen him."
Garrick Fy`aar: "...but... those two haven't fought in forever..."
Sonic: "Like you could ever catch me? I'd like to see you hit even Knuckles!"
VG: "Maybe it's a different Robotnik...?"
Metal Man (GM): Sonic bashes the mecha, and it flies away... broken.
Aribar: "THIS is confusing..."
Dr. Robotnik: "Bah! I'll get my revenge when my mecha DOESN'T explode.!"
Metal Man (GM): Dr. Robotnik flies off. Sonic turns to all of you, shocked.
Sonic: "W-w-who are you guys?"
VG: "I'm glad to know you don't remember me."
Sonic: "And... why is there a large rainbow door behind you?"
Garrick Fy`aar: "We're the Questers, and things like that happen to us."
Sonic: "I hope it isn't chaos control!"
VG feels insulted... it was Pat that got him into SSS, not VG.
Aribar: "I am Aribar Hunter, Protector of Whaller and Quester... That would be a dimensional portal thingie... And who are you?"
VG: "I'm VG if that rings a bell."
Aribar wants to confirm that this is Sonic.
Sonic: "...Questers? What? I'm Sonic the hedgehog!"
Aribar: .oO(Even if the others and his foe say so, I want to hear him say it... Ah. Good.)
Sonic: "And you better not be evil like that blonde man who attacked me!"
VG: "And you don't recall this Toad with a belt?" *Shows it.*
Garrick Fy`aar: "Which way did that guy go?"
VG: "...Blonde Man? We're after him!"
Sonic: "...You're not a frog. Why are you calling yourself one?"
VG: .oO(...this is definitely a different dimension... the real Sonic would have recognized me)
Sonic: "...You're after the blonde man... right. Well, even though I have no clue who you are, might as well lead you to him."
Garrick Fy`aar: "Yeah, aren't people nice like that? Lead the way."
Sonic: "He's up that hill, down the perilous sand pit, across the ice-filled ocean, and then somewhere in that large ruined base of Dr. Robotnik's! He said something about getting help for that long-dead Gerald Robotnik creep!"
Garrick Fy`aar: "...we need to move."
VG: "...you guys go ahead."
Sonic: "If he hadn't teleported after I hit him several times, I could have stopped him..."
VG: "I need to make sure that our base is secure."
Metal Man (GM): BEGIN: Sonic the Hedgehog and The Questers
Aribar: "...Arrg... Why must things always be the hard way?"
Metal Man (GM): Zone one: Woodland Hills Zone.
VG goes back through the Door of Doom.
Sonic: "Hard? It's fun to run around."
Garrick Fy`aar: "...let's just go..." *He starts off down the path.*
Sonic: "Now then, this way!"
Aribar follows the others.
Metal Man (GM): Sonic runs forward. He stops immediately at a pit of spikes that has three small moving platforms floating over it.
Metal Man: "...Heh heh heh..." *He flies right over it.*
Garrick Fy`aar: "..." *Sigh*..." " *He runs at it, jumping.*
Sonic: "...You're just like Tails! ...Now if only you could have carried someone over while you were at it..."
Metal Man (GM): Garrick: Three jump checks.
Aribar tries to judge how large the pit is.
Metal Man (GM): Increasing difficulty with each. The pit is very large, but not very deep.
Garrick Fy`aar: *luckying the last one.*
Aribar jumps to the first platform...
Metal Man (GM): Garrick reaches the final platform, but not the other side. Aribar leaps aboard the first platform.
Garrick Fy`aar runs for the final one.
Metal Man (GM): Ganondorf leaps over the entire pit.
Aribar then goes to the second... He's being cautious.
Metal Man (GM): Garrick's controller is sticky! I mean... Garrick: You fall into the spikes! Ow!
Aribar: "Gah!" *He attempts to Magic Teleport him to the next platform.*
Garrick Fy`aar tries to blast his way to the end!
Metal Man (GM): Aribar lands on the third platform as Garrick blasts into the wall, then falls onto the spikes in comical fashion.
Aribar: "...Did that hurt?"
Metal Man (GM): Rings scatter everywhere off of him as he starts blinking.
Garrick Fy`aar: "...ow..."
Metal Man: "...This place is weird."
Garrick Fy`aar tries to leap up and out.
Metal Man (GM): Garrick is able to leap out of the pit, but now there's a flashing indicator that says he has 0 rings. Metal: 100 rings Aribar: 100 rings
Garrick Fy`aar: "...what in the world..."
Metal Man (GM): Ganondorf: 100 rings
Aribar leaps to the other side... He tries to catch a few rings on his way over there.
Metal Man (GM): Sonic: 56 rings Garrick: 0 Rings Aribar gets across.
Sonic: "Not bad for first-timers! That weird person almost died until he started blasting stuff..."
Aribar: "So you consider life-threatening situations fun?"
Metal Man (GM): http://www.vgmusic.com/music/console/sega/genesis/Emerald_Hill_Zone.mid
Sonic: "Well, if I die, I always have another life to back me up."
Metal Man (GM): *Points to the three lives everybody have.*
Sonic: "Now then... to the next obstacle!"
Metal Man (GM): Sonic takes off running again, causing everybody to run after him ala Tails... with Ganondorf in the back, huffing and puffing.
Aribar sighs and begins dashing after Sonic the Crazy Hedgehog.
Metal Man (GM): Since after all, the stuff behind everybody suddenly disappears. You now reach another fun obstacle! It's... a pit, which you must get into. Unfortunately, there's a huge log over it.
Sonic: "It's a good thing you came with me... this log is too large for me to move alone."
Metal Man: "I guess we all push on it."
Ganondorf: "Finally, something that I am great at."
Aribar goes to push it.
Metal Man (GM): Metal, Sonic, and Ganondorf start pushing on it. Everyone: STR checks. With the combined might, the log is dislodged. Sonic begins hopping down the pit.
Garrick Fy`aar: "Nicely done." *He goes after him.*
Sonic: "Okay... the way up that hill is down here!"
Metal Man follows w/Ganondorf.
Metal Man (GM): You all reach the bottom. There's a water slide here.
Sonic: "What? There's water down here? But I hate water! ...Well, at least it isn't deep."
Aribar: "Please tell me you take baths..."
Sonic: "...After going Hydro City Zone, it's almost like I can't get dirty! That was horrible... it was like a huge washing machine."
Garrick Fy`aar: "...this is messed up... let's just go."
Aribar: "Oooookay..." *Starts down the slide.*
Garrick Fy`aar starts down the slide as well.
Metal Man (GM): Sonic leaps onto the slide as well... so do the rest. Shortly as you get aboard, though, things become rough. You have to make a jump to a platform or fall into deep water!
Sonic: "Oh no! It flooded the caverns!"
Aribar: "Piffle!" *Leap of faith +1!*
Metal Man (GM): Sonic barely leaps onto a platform. Garrick and Aribar follow.
Metal Man (GM): Ganondorf, once again, leaps with supernatural ability. He leaps all the way across the treacherous bridge which is over the water.
Metal Man: "Did you know I hate water t---" *SPLASH He lands to the bottom, and begins walking forward.*
Garrick Fy`aar: To Ganondorf: .oO(Let me guess... magic added you there?)
Sonic: "...He should hopefully catch up to us later."
Ganondorf: .oO(The Triforce of Power gave me unnatural strength.)
Metal Man (GM): The bridge across will fall apart as you run across it... SPD checks, everybody! Sonic does it without a problem.
Garrick Fy`aar: .oO(Ah, well, that makes sense... remind me to do some strength training again you, later.)
Aribar: "Daaah... Why do we have to go so fast?!"
Metal Man (GM): Ganondorf falls off of the bridge.
Metal Man (GM): Aribar and Garrick are the only people on the upper part with Sonic.
Sonic: "Well, at least he won't be lonely down there... Now then... up the stairs!"
Aribar: "We need to rescue them somehow!"
Sonic: "Rescue them? In that cold water?"
Garrick Fy`aar: "Nah, those two will be alright. Let's keep moving."
Metal Man (GM): Sonic shivers.
Aribar: "..." *He sighs and follows Sonic.*
Sonic: "I think you'd have to rescue me as well! ...Anyway..."
Metal Man (GM): He runs up the stairs with you two. You reach the top of a platform. There's a weird signpost. Sonic punches it, and it spins around and glows.
Sonic: "We're hallway through!"
Garrick Fy`aar: "Well, that's good to know..."
Aribar: "...What was that sign?"
Metal Man (GM): Sonic walks forward... you three all hear a click.
Sonic: "A... look out!"
Metal Man (GM): Sonic starts running as a boulder falls from above.
Metal Man (GM): SPD checks for you two now.
Garrick Fy`aar blasts after him, kicking up his own feet.
Metal Man (GM): You manage to move fast enough, barely. The boulder is inches away from you.
Aribar starts to try and pick up speed... He looks forward to see if there are any holes ahead, and backwards to see how big the boulder is. "Gah... Magic Teleport!" *The elf tries to teleport behind the boulder.*
Metal Man (GM): The boulder fills up the entire corridor, and the way ahead is smooth... there's a single pit to catch the boulder. You warp behind the boulder. The boulder crashes into the pit, and you're all safe now.
Sonic: "Okay... one last obstacle!"
Metal Man (GM): Sonic leaps on a spring and flies up out of the cave.
Garrick Fy`aar follows.
Aribar sighs and follows Sonic's lead.
Metal Man (GM): You walk forward, and then notice a large, round, paved area. Of pure stone ...A shadow forms in the middle.
Sonic: "Get ready! It's Robotnik!"
Dr. Robotnik: "This time I will stop you! With my ultimate weapon of destruction, you shall be rid of forever!"
Aribar: "Eh?" *The elf stands off to the side.*
Metal Man (GM): http://www.vgmusic.com/music/console/sega/genesis/md_son2_robo.mid
Dr. Robotnik: "What? You've gotten yet more friends? Curse you, Sonic!"
Sonic: "What can I say? I have a magnetic personality."
Metal Man (GM): SPDs, everybody. Yes. Azure suddenly appears from behind the screen. Sonic leaps up and tries to bash the machine. He somehow gets a critical miss! However, he only misses it instead of anything really bad.
Sonic: "That water must have thrown off my concentration!"
Dr. Robotnik: "Hahaha! Soon, I will rule Mobius!"
Sonic: "Fat chance, Dr. Robotnik!"
Aribar: "Hrm... Electric Elemental Blast!" *The elf shocks Dr. Robotnik and then downs a Green Potion of Doom +1.*
Garrick Fy`aar moves in time with Aribar, adding a sextet of fiery dumdum rounds to Ari's shocking blast.
Metal Man (GM): Hmmm... You both hit him. The space-ship thing flashes twice.
Dr. Robotnik: "Gah! Leave my machine alone!"
Metal Man (GM): The space-ship opens up on the bottom, and a wicked ray-gun comes out. It fires at Garrick thrice.
Garrick Fy`aar: "Is it just me, or is this really old scho--WHOA!" *He gets popped twice.*
Metal Man (GM): Garrick flies off of the screen and loses a life.
Sonic: "I forgot! You need rings to survive being hit by Dr. Robotnik!"
Metal Man (GM): Dr. Robotnik then tries to fly straight into Aribar.
Azure: "Rings..." *He sighs.*
Azure: "I had 200 of those the other day....."
Metal Man (GM): He bashes Aribar, knocking his rings away.
Aribar watches as all his rings go bye-bye.
Metal Man (GM): Aribar: SPD check to pick up rings, if you want.
Aribar tries to pick up at least one.
Metal Man (GM): But it'll eat an action from your next turn. Wow... with that horrible roll, you manage to miss all of them! However, some of them hit Sonic and Azure instead, giving them more rings.
Sonic: "Hang on... we just need to hit him several more times!"
Dr. Robotnik: "Hah hah hah. You can never defeat me!"
Metal Man (GM): Gibby appears as well. Gibby, your SPD?
Sonic: "It's a good thing you have reinforcements."
Gibby: "Hey guys!"
Aribar: "Great! More blue critters..."
Sonic: "...That's very strange... why is a blue marshmallow here?"
Azure: "I have no clue what I can do for you this battle but here goes." *He floats up in the air trailing along the ground toward Dr. Robotnik's machine picking up speed. He closes his arms sending out a burst as he latches on to the sleek sides.*
Gibby: "...It's 'aqua' thank you very much."
Metal Man (GM): Hit.
Azure: *He pulls back for a moment then rams forward with Bozen smash.*
Sonic: "You people seem much like me... and my friends... very interesting."
Metal Man (GM): Hit again.
Aribar: "Let me guess... Squirrels and foxes are your friend?"
Sonic: "...How did you know?"
Aribar: "And other woodland animals?"
Metal Man (GM): Sonic leaps up to hit Robotnik. *SMACK.*
Aribar: "..." *Twitch.*
Sonic: "Take that!"
Dr. Robotnik: "I'll get you yet, heinous hedgehog!"
Aribar fires two Jolts at Dr. Robotnik! 15% Electric...
Metal Man (GM): The machine, unfortunately, can't be stunned. The machine is looking dented and stuff.
Dr. Robotnik: "Curse you and this small mob of people! Why did I have to attack after a shiny rainbow door appeared and blew up my latest invention?"
Gibby takes out his gun, cocks it, and shoots at Dr. Robotnik's saucer thing.
Azure: .oO(Shiny rainbow... door)
Sonic: "...So YOU created it?"
Metal Man (GM): You hit the thing all two times.
Dr. Robotnik: "No! It destroyed my... I'm not telling you! Eat lasers!"
Metal Man (GM): The machine fires at Sonic repeatedly. Sonic is hit once, then twice by it. He goes to collect rings he's dropped. He gets 25 of them back.
Sonic: "It'll take more than that to defeat me!"
Metal Man (GM): The machine is now looking rather messed up. It's shooting sparks and smoking.
Azure: *Still hoving over head he attempts to latch on to the contraption again with another forceful impact bounder.*
Metal Man (GM): You hit it.
Dr. Robotnik: "You're worse than that blonde person who destroyed my base! Only Sonic could top that!"
Sonic: "...That's strange... wouldn't an evil person ally with you?"
Azure after grabbing on he pulls it downward (using that expression from super grab quirk) and then flies toward the space Dr. Robotnik and does a tornado drill dance right on top of it.
Dr. Robotnik: "Evil? He seemed outright good to me!"
Metal Man (GM): One hit. is skipped; he used it gathering rings.
Sonic: "It's almost dead. Just hit it a couple more times!"
Aribar rushes up and slashes it twice.
Metal Man (GM): *BONK BONK* You damage it twice. Garrick reappears. His turn.
Garrick Fy`aar growls, then unloads on the sucker with a machine gun series of rounds.
Dr. Robotnik: "Infernal machine! Stop getting hit!"
Metal Man (GM): You hit it a ton of times... but it only flashes twice.
Dr. Robotnik: "Bah! WORK YOU PATHETIC JUNK HEAP!"
Metal Man (GM): He's slamming on the controls as fires break out on the machine.
Gibby cocks, and fires two more times.
Metal Man (GM): *FLASH* *FLASH.*
Dr. Robotnik: "I'll just have to try harder... Full power!"
Metal Man (GM): The machine fires lasers at Azure, then at Gibby.
Gibby leaps away from the lasers.
Metal Man (GM): Needless to say, it misses Gibby and blasts Azure.
Metal Man (GM): Azure: Roll a SPD check to recover rings that you dropped. If you do so, you use one round from your turn. You regain 21 rings. But before you can even do your turn, Dr. Robotnik's craft falls apart.
Dr. Robotnik: "I'll be back! And next time, with something larger!"
Metal Man (GM): The Egg-o-matic speeds out of view. The score things begins to tally.... It gets so huge, the 'score' gauge breaks.
Azure: "Oh well... what a weird guy."
Metal Man (GM): Then so does the 'lives', 'rings', and other such things.
Gibby: "Yay for winning!"
Metal Man (GM): Garrick et Aribar: 800 EXP Everybody else: 300 EXP Metal and Ganondorf emerge, wet, from an underground passage.
Metal Man: "...I... HATE... underwater temples..."
Ganondorf: "My cloaks will never dry out after going through there!"
Sonic: "Well, even without the gauges and such, we must get to that mysterious man who started all of this! Follow me!"
Metal Man (GM): The way ahead is now down a treacherous hill of sand.
Azure: *Level up.*
Aribar dashes after Sonic.
Gibby follows Ari.
Metal Man (GM): You slide down the hill at high speed. Then you fly over the entire icy ocean part... And land right in front of the deserted base.
Sonic: "Well, I guess we're lucky that the timer broke, otherwise we'd have to navigate more traps..."
Metal Man (GM): http://www.vgmusic.com/music/console/sony/ps1/Kuja%27s_Melody.mid
Kuja Tribal: "Hello, Questers. You have followed me into a world where you do not belong."
Ganondorf: "To destroy you, we would go into the sun itself."
Azure: "Why would you say something like that..."
Digifanatic was found sliding behind the others. "Sorry guys, took a nap for a bit too long and... here we go again."
Kuja Tribal: "Ah yes... my traitorous ex-slave. You broke free simply because of that worthless Garrick Fy'Arr. It ends here. I will kill all of you and destroy this world. No one will know but me."
Gibby: "Sure, sure..."
Aribar: "...Then summon Doopliss to fight me."
Kuja Tribal: "Doopliss is not here."
Sonic: "Don't worry guys. I've got you all backed up now."
Ganondorf: "We must unite to destroy this fiend."
Aribar: "...Sonic, you cannot comprehend this one's power!"
Metal Man: "It's time for revenge!"
Kuja Tribal: "Yes... Aribar. Run away. Run far away. Run as your friends are killed, Aribar."
Digifanatic: .oO(Here we go... everyone looking at us like we're Superman or something...)
Kuja Tribal: "It is now that I must end this sad tale."
Aribar switches weapons for the Wand of Wonder. "Never, Kuja. It may be hopeless, but we shall all oppose you to the end!"
Metal Man (GM): http://www.vgmusic.com/music/console/sony/ps1/ff9finalbattle%282%29.mid
Kuja Tribal: "Let this be written... as the day Kuja destroyed the Questers!"
Metal Man (GM): *ULTIMATE MEGA BATTLE OF DOOM.*
Digifanatic: "No... body... trance."
Azure: "As a fighter I must fight. Its the only means to my own honorable death. I don't understand why you would want to destroy this world."
Metal Man (GM): One second while I put up the stats. Battle: Ganondorf, Sonic, & The Questers vs. Kuja Determining order... Everyone has 6 lives for this battle. Sonic has 3 lives, Ganondorf has 1.
Kuja Tribal: "Taste death, young Whalleranian. FIRAGA!"
Metal Man (GM): Instant 300% fire damage to Aribar.
Aribar: "GAH!" *He dies...*
Kuja Tribal: "FLARE STAR!"
Metal Man (GM): Everyone takes 100% damage.
Gibby is hurting...
Garrick Fy`aar yells out, the non-elemental damage frying him big time.
Metal Man (GM): Except me, who miraculously avoids.
Aribar is four times dead before he even falls to the ground.
Digifanatic: "That power is no joke..."
Azure: *Just barely stands.*
Digifanatic: *80% and 90% badges activated.*
Gibby: "No... kidding... ugh..."
Kuja Tribal: "REFLECT! PROTECT!"
Metal Man (GM): Kuja is surrounded by two shiny barriers.
Ganondorf: "I've had enough of you. Chaos Breaker!"
Metal Man (GM): Ganondorf runs up to him and attacks him with Chaos Breaker.
Digifanatic: "This is gonna hurt either way..."
Metal Man (GM): The cheapness of Ganondorf's own move manages to overpower Kuja twice. 56% total damage to Kuja.
Kuja Tribal: "So you can bite. Impressive, but not enough to stop me."
Ganondorf: "I shall slash you to pieces!"
Metal Man (GM): 79% more damage to Kuja.
Sonic: "It's my turn!"
Metal Man (GM): Sonic leaps up, forms a spindash, and flies at Kuja.
Digifanatic: .oO(I hope going Super doesn't equal a Trance...)
Metal Man (GM): He barely misses as Kuja spins to the side. However, he's not done yet. Sonic flies at him again, with a homing attack. He deals 25% damage to Kuja. Aribar returns, minus one action, of course.
Aribar: "..." *He casts Badge Breaker on Kuja. He hopes it does SOMETHING.*
Metal Man (GM): It glows on contact. It eliminates his Protect.
Kuja Tribal: "Hmph."
Aribar: "Never mess with a Jentanian Wizard!"
Digifanatic: "Not looking bad, Ari."
Garrick Fy`aar is running to his right, flanking as best he can. He unloads a series of flaming shield piercing shots at him.
Azure: *Just gives a dead stare he seems to be intently watching Kuja's powers.*
Garrick Fy`aar: *Followed by one connection of flaming dumdums*
Metal Man (GM): Once... no, two of them are able to hit as they pierce... the flaming dumdum shots bounce off the shield and fly at Garrick.
Garrick Fy`aar leaps out of the way.
Metal Man (GM): With the same rolls at Garrick had for them, of course. 15 15 and 25. Damage for the two shots that did hit Kuja?
Kuja Tribal: "You fight valiantly, but you can not survive for long."
Gibby points his gun at Kuja, and fires two shots at him.
Metal Man (GM): Gibby:The two shots are reflected right back at you. With the 30 and 32 for the rolls against you. They deal normal damage as they (probably) hit you.
Digifanatic: "Oh man... guys, lay off the projectiles..."
Gibby gets hit twice for 52% damage.
Garrick Fy`aar: "It's his shield. Bust it!"
Gibby: "...bad idea..." *He dies.*
Kuja Tribal: "Now if only it was that easy."
Azure: "Continues his stare he contemplates how to use some of this power" *Now using mimic quirk.* .oO( there has got to be one I can use... )
Metal Man (GM): Let's seee... You mimic: Regen! The person who it's casted on gains 10% HP every round. You have one more action to use. You don't need MP to cast it. You just mimicked it, and you may use it as much as you want for this battle.
Azure: *Uses red essence on himself.*
Metal Man (GM): Azure is invincible for three rounds.
Digifanatic: .oO(I need some of those when I get back... dang it.) *He thinks about the lack of success of projectiles. He uses a Fire Punch.*
Metal Man (GM): Too slow. He avoids it quickly.
Digifanatic: *He then goes for a Super Mario Punch.*
Metal Man (GM): You barely miss. He's a fast sucker. My turn!
Metal Man is in some sort of new mode... "Hyper Mode shall be put to the test here."
Azure: "Anyone badly hurt?"
Digifanatic: "Hyper? What have you done? Oh, and Azure, practically all of us..."
Metal Man glows. He then flies at Kuja, and slashes him not once, not twice, not three times, but four... some sort of invisible energy is powering him!
Digifanatic: "Except Ari."
Metal Man (GM): OUCH!
Aribar continues to glare at Kuja... He shakes his head at Azure's question, though.
Metal Man (GM): 200% Ice damage as the attack totally knocks him around.
Kuja Tribal: "How dare you... replace Trance with something else?"
Metal Man: "You aren't the boss of me. Surrender or... no... just die..."
Kuja Tribal: "It's time to destroy more of the unfaithful. COMET!"
Metal Man (GM): Everybody is hit by comets for 50% damage.
Metal Man once again evades the attack somehow.
Aribar grimaces as the comets hit him, but stays alive...
Kuja Tribal: "Curse you and your lucky streak, Illian!"
Azure: *Holds up an x guard with is hands from the force of the attack but remains standing due to the red essence.*
Kuja Tribal: "DEATH!"
Metal Man (GM): Metal is instantly killed, through Kuja's own magic.
Metal Man: "Argh!" *He loses a life.*
Gibby: "Holy crap!"
Metal Man (GM): Kuja then turns to Sonic and blasts him with a wateraga.
Garrick Fy`aar life.
Sonic: "I hate water! Owwwwww!!!!"
Aribar: "Kuja... You... You are a monster! No one should have that much power!"
Kuja Tribal: "It is too late for you to stop me. Hahahahahahahahaha! CURAGA!"
Azure: "Well you have the evil laugh down... geez it's like you were made to do this...."
Metal Man (GM): Kuja heals 300% damage from himself.
Digifanatic: .oO(I'd wait till he's done attacking... he'd hate to--oh dang it.)
Sonic: "That's it, you're going down!"
Gibby: "He's... too much..."
Metal Man (GM): Sonic glows... and goes SUPER.
Super Sonic: "Take this, you villain!"
Metal Man (GM): He hurdles himself at Kuja, hitting him twice.
Digifanatic: "Now THAT'S what you call nice... all we need now is VG."
Metal Man (GM): Kuja takes 100% damage from those two attacks... and his Reflect barrier is down.
Digifanatic: "Garrick and Gibby, dead or alive... this is their op."
Metal Man (GM): Ganondorf continues slashing at the evil mage.
Gibby reloads his gun. "I'm ready for him."
Metal Man (GM): All hit but three slashes, as Kuja takes 504% damage!
Kuja Tribal: "Ugh... worthless Chaos Breaker!"
Digifanatic: "Good to hear it. This is the time we roll."
Aribar: "Die now, Kuja!" *The elf fires two Star Storms from his Wand of Wonder at his foul foe before casting Mirror on himself.*
Metal Man (GM): Kuja is hit for 189 damage.
Garrick Fy`aar unloads a whole bunch of regular flaming rounds at him.
Metal Man (GM): 0 hits as Kuja laughs and flies around it.
Kuja Tribal: "You're slow, Fy'Arr. However, I shall make sure you never get a chance to speed up."
Metal Man (GM): There is a borderline wonder crit, but it fails because it misses already. Against Kuja, that doesn't work. Is your turn over?
Garrick Fy`aar: "...if only I had those damn boots..."
Metal Man (GM): He reappears, without an action.
Azure: "Boots..... Super Sneakers?"
Gibby cocks his gun, and aims at Kuja's chest. "EAT LEAD!" He fires a shot at him.
Metal Man (GM): Hit!
Kuja Tribal: "Grrrr!!!"
Garrick Fy`aar: "No, that idiot Link's Pegasus Boots... tried to beat him... barely failed..."
Metal Man: "You could have stolen them while he was sleeping."
Aribar: "...If he stole them then I would have killed him."
Sonic: "Killed him? Your sense of justice is a bit too extreme!"
Aribar stays silent, secretly knowing Sonic's right.
Garrick Fy`aar falls in next to Ganondorf, muttering to him.
Azure looks around at everyone who is damaged.
Garrick Fy`aar: "...what do you think?"
Metal Man: "...Anyway, we need to knock Kuja down."
Azure: "SONIC CATCH!" *He throws super sneakers to him. A boost for the already speedy ally.*
Sonic: "Thanks! This should make me unhittable!"
Azure: *He looks to Gibby and uses regen.*
Metal Man (GM): Gibby regains 10 HP the minute the spell goes into action. He will heal 10 more every time a new round starts.
Metal Man (GM): My turn!
Metal Man: "Now that the barrier is down, it's time for some fun!" *He glows, and fires three huge blue beams of light at Kuja.* "BLUE BEAM BARRAGE!."
Metal Man (GM): That last one still hits, though... Kuja takes 192 damage. ...*DING!* *DINGDINGIDNGINDG!*
Kuja's HP: HP: 1337/3000
Metal Man (GM): *Random flashing lights* Everybody gains 1337 coins to celebrate the occasion! And now, back to the battle... new round! Gibby heals 10% damage!
Kuja Tribal: "You fight well, but this is only the beginning, not the end. SHELL!"
Aribar: "Kuja, you are a weakling compared to our combined might!" *He tries to taunt his foe.*
Kuja Tribal: "Oh, really? HOLY!"
Gibby coughs again.
Metal Man (GM): Aribar is smote with 500% light damage.
Gibby: *-_-;* "Smooth..."
Kuja Tribal: "Flare Star!"
Metal Man (GM): Everybody takes 100% non-elemental damage... but first! The dice favor Kuja's overwhelming power! However, the mirror deflects some of it... so Aribar only takes 250% holy damage. The mirror is also exploded. Then, everybody takes the 100% from the Flare Star.
Garrick Fy`aar is smashed back again, groaning. He's on his last life, too... he looks over to Ganondorf... "...now?"
Gibby dies as well.
Ganondorf: "Now what?"
Azure: *Still safely protected by red essence but it does seem to begin to waver.*
Kuja Tribal: "And you! Horrible fiend! Take this! FIRAGA!"
Metal Man (GM): Ganondorf is engulfed in fire for 300% damage.
Super Sonic: "You won't win this time!"
Garrick Fy`aar gently taps the back of his fist.
Metal Man (GM): Super Sonic speeds into Kuja... he moves too fast to track. You hear the sound barrier break five times. Kuja is hit for... FIVE HUNDRED DAMAGE.
Kuja Tribal: "...Gh... your golden tricks cannot stop me..."
Ganondorf: "Yes... it is time."
Metal Man (GM): Ganondorf pulls out the Triforce.
Kuja Tribal: "...What? YOU? With the Triforce? Impossible!"
Ganondorf: "With the power of the Triforce, I summon the holy energy the destroy Kuja!"
Azure turns to look at Ganondorf. "A sacred relic... power, wisdom, courage..."
Metal Man (GM): The Triforce glows, then nails Kuja with a beam of light for 1000 more damage... the beam also burns the ground he's standing on to nothing.
Ganondorf: "What? He's still alive? Impossible!"
Kuja Tribal: "Your relics will not stop me..."
Metal Man (GM): Kuja is weak. Stop him before he heals!
Aribar slowly gets up... "..."
Metal Man (GM): His Shell is gone, too. Super Sonic shredded it.
Aribar begins to charge up Terrorbolt and then fires it at Kuja! 168% Electric damage! "By Whaller you shall die!"
Metal Man (GM): *PING* Kuja stands back a bit, torn up, ragged, burnt, and horribly angry. *Goes back to Kuja's theme. If you can imagine it, this time, the player of the piano is playing it very badly, missing keys and inserting long pauses.*
Kuja Tribal: "No... this cannot be... defeated... by the Questers? I cannot lose..." *Turns to everyone.*
Aribar raises the Wand of Wonder defensively...
Kuja Tribal: "I shall... destroy you all!!!"
Metal Man (GM): He begins coursing with energy. The skies turn black. Lightning begins to shred the world around you.
Aribar: "...We must escape!"
Kuja Tribal: "DOOMSDAY!"
Azure: "Escape where!"
Metal Man (GM): The lightning flies around. The entire dimension is now exploding. Things are flying around like mad, and entire houses fly in the wind.
Metal Man (GM): Kuja stands in the middle, a look of madness on his face as the entire world is shredded apart.
Kuja Tribal: "No one... who defeats me... can survive!"
Metal Man (GM): He holds out his hand, blasting at Ganondorf. The Triforce glows.... Then EXPLODES.
Aribar is stunned by the destructive powers... Not even King Erwin could do something such as this!
Gibby: "Well... we tried..."
Azure: *Looks to the triforce of wisdom as it scatters.*
Metal Man (GM): The pieces of the Triforce fly everywhere as Ganondorf falls to the ground.
Garrick Fy`aar: "...you... you..."
Metal Man (GM): Super Sonic, however, simply picks up the sword.
Super Sonic: "If you want to play it that way, you'll have to beat me first!"
Metal Man (GM): Super Sonic picks up the Chaos Breaker and HURLS it at Kuja. It spears him in an instant. The magic going through it tries to break it... It shatters. Kuja laughs for a second... when suddenly all reality explodes in this realm ..A few minutes go by... Everyone wakes up in the Stadium cafeteria.
Garrick Fy`aar: "...wh... what?"
Metal Man (GM): The only difference... is that Sonic is there... and the Chaos Breaker is stuck in the ground, crumbling away. To dust.
Gibby: "...what happened?"
Metal Man: "...We did not kill Kuja."
Aribar looks up... "... We didn't?"
Azure: "Huh... where are we..." *His red essence blinking in and out before going out completely.*
Metal Man: "He destroyed the entire dimension which we were in. Luckily... it was..."
Editor's Note: ULTIMATE CLIFFHANGER!
