Date: 4:39:54 PM, March 20th; 5:51:15 PM, March 21st; 3:25:54 PM, March 22nd, 2005.
Metal Man (GM): The thing turns invisible... wow that's annoying!
Golden Guy: "Getting... Dizzy... ...@_@."
Digifanatic then just uses another Fire Punch. "That thing is so annoying!"
Sonic: "...This is the last time I trust 1-sided coins to be mundane objects."
Orlando Florida: "Then leap off the edge."
Digifanatic: "No man."
Azure: *He dashes at it with another impact bounder not having much else to try.*
Metal Man: "I have a good idea..."
Orlando Florida: "Free me and return my stuff?!"
Metal Man (GM): The impact bounder misses due to his cheapness fie--- I mean spinning. Sonic picks up Orlando, like some sort of weapon.
Azure: *Flips overhead and fires an impact bounder straight down at the spinning gold agent.*
Sonic: "I shall use you as a weapon... then you can earn back all seven of your coins!"
Orlando Florida: "GAH!"
Azure: "I wonder if fire melts gold in this world..." *Fires.*
Metal Man (GM): Well, that attack misses... badly.
Orlando Florida tries to struggle against that blue menace.
Metal Man (GM): Anyway... the agent stops spinning. And he's now confused. Orlando: STR check. You're held tight... just barely. The hedgehog isn't too strong.
Digifanatic: "Hey, he's stopped..."
Orlando Florida: "Put me down or I'll freeze you into an icicle!"
Sonic: "Let's smash that thing while it's not spinning!"
Digifanatic: "Alright Gibby! Give 'em all ya got!"
Sonic: "Stop threatening me or I'll throw you into that pit!"
Orlando Florida: "..."
Gibby fires two straight shots, and then leaps in the air and attacks with a jump shot.
Orlando Florida keeps his tongue still for once...
Metal Man (GM): Hit and hit. And hit. Three hits, all for double damage.
Gibby backflips back into place.
Sonic: "Now it's time to shine!"
Digifanatic: "Nice acrobatics..."
Metal Man (GM): Sonic takes Orlando, and bashes the evil looking agent with him.
Gibby: "I haven't been training with ninja Goombas for nothing you know."
Metal Man (GM): ...He smashes Orlando's head into the floor.
Metal Man (GM): Orlando takes 25% damage and is now on the ground.
Orlando Florida: "GAH! You're braining my damage, stupid hedgehog!"
Metal Man (GM): The Golden Guy looks at Orlando.
Azure: "That has got to hurt..."
Golden Guy: "Hey, you. You want to help me steal all of their coins?"
Orlando Florida: "...Yes! Free me and I'll get you all their coins and then some!"
Golden Guy: "Alright. Golden Plate!"
Metal Man (GM): The cuffs turn to Gold... making them easy to break. Orlando: STR check ...Orlando is still stopped by the pathetic golden cuffs.
Orlando Florida: "Spoony pieces of--!"
Golden Guy: "...I'll have to wait until you can break out. Meanwhile, it's stealing time!"
Metal Man (GM): Golden Guy shoots his coin beam at Azure. How many coins do you have, Azure? OUCH! 349 damage to Azure. He loses 3,494 coins.
Metal Man (GM): And... the worst part yet... he regains 34 HP!
Gibby: "...goes to show you that it doesn't pay to be rich."
Metal Man (GM): Azure is now without one action.
Azure: *rises up* "This is why I wanted to drop the thing. Who cares if it drops a lot, it's gonna take a lot more than we can give." *He rushes at it again with a impact bounder*
Metal Man (GM): Hit! Double damage! *Jeopardy theme.*
Gibby reloads, and then fires three more shots. "Die already!"
Metal Man (GM): Three hits @ Double damage for Gibby. *WARP* Then, outta nowhere, some mysterious person wearing a fedora falls out of a blue wormhole.
Gibby: "Who the heck are you?"
Aribar: "...Now what?"
Orlando Florida: "..."
Metal Man (GM): The Goldenguy attacks Azure with the golden beam attack yet again. Hmmmm... 314 damage, you lose 3,144 coins, and he regains 31 HP.
Azure: *Dies again*
Metal Man (GM): Then he throws his sunglasses again, dealing 10 damage to everyone.
Azure: *1 life remains.*
Metal Man (GM): Minus one action.
Gibby is at a risk for death... He lives! "Can't... take... much more..."
Orlando Florida: "Kill the blue one! He's weak!"
Gibby: "You shut up!"
Azure: "Stupid..." *His body is engulfed in his own energy. He soul bursts.*
Metal Man (GM): The evil golden guy is currently laughing, although he's also looking... a tad tarnished.
Julian Sawyer hit the ground face first with a thud. After laying there a while, he stands up and dusts himself off, hen takes a look at where that giant hole landed him. "...This day just keeps getting weirder and weirder..."
Metal Man (GM): Your opponent, as you can tell, is the evil man made of gold.
Orlando Florida: "You! New person! We need help! These evil people are attacking us!" *He looks towards the Questers.*
Gibby: "Shut up, Orlando. Look kid, we're fighting an evil gold guy, so we'll need your help."
Metal Man (GM): You get one action for your turn.
Orlando Florida: "How is he evil? How can you prove it?"
Gibby: "...HE JUST IS!"
Orlando Florida: "Maybe YOU'RE the evil one! All he wants is money!"
Golden Guy: "Hahahahaha! I shall take all 100,000 of your coins to repair my body of brilliant money!"
Gibby: "THAT'S what an evil guy would say!"
Orlando Florida: "He's just misunderstood!"
Gibby: "...MISUNDERSTOOD? YOU... I can't talk to you!"
Julian Sawyer: "...I'll just leave the questions for later..." *Julian then turns to face the Not-So-Shiny Gold Agent, then produces a bottle from the inside of his vest.* "Let's see how this works..." *Runs towards the enemy and smashes the bottle over his head.*
Metal Man (GM): Ooh! So close... but you miss by 1. He barely moves out of the way.
Julian Sawyer: *I'm assuming I can use a LUCKY here--Bah.*
Metal Man (GM): Will Orlando break free from the weak handcuffs?
Orlando Florida tries to break his bonds... Orlando Florida tries for his second action...
Metal Man (GM): ...Orlando gets his foot tangled in the handcuffs with that 1, making it harder to escape.
Julian Sawyer: *Leans forward and goes off balance a bit, then regains, replaces the bottle and just stays where he is for now.*
Orlando Florida: "Grrr!"
Metal Man (GM): ...You would escape if your foot wasn't stuck in there.
Orlando Florida tries again!
Metal Man (GM): ...Gold tastes bad.
Sonic: "Are you going to escape from those handcuffs, or eat them and your foot?"
Gibby laughs at Orlando, and then fires three more shots at the gold dude.
Metal Man (GM): You hit him three times for double damage! He's almost dead.
Aribar: "You've almost got to feel sorry for him. Almost." *The elf stands back with Sonic still.*
Metal Man (GM): The Golden Guy shoots Gibby twice for some more money.
Gibby: "GAH! NOOOO!"
Golden Guy: "Must... replenish... coin... supply..."
Metal Man (GM): Your coins again? @_@ Gibby takes 43 damage, and loses 431 coins...
Orlando Florida: "Good one!"
Metal Man (GM): He then steals 388 coins from your corpse. He regains a whopping 7 HP. Try to finish off this golden coin thief!
Julian Sawyer: *Goes with stright-up melee attacking this turn, assaulting with two quick kicks to the midsection, finishing with a roundhouse kick to the head. - Beatbox.*
Metal Man (GM): The last roundhouse kick hits ..Yup. 2 damage. The handcuffs are real again.
Orlando Florida tries to free himself for the... What is it? Tenth time?
Metal Man (GM): The Golden man kind of scoffs as you dent his face.
Orlando Florida: "Ah! Finally! Now..."
Metal Man (GM): The handcuffs break from being abused so much.
Orlando Florida: "HEALMOST!"
Metal Man (GM): Sonic joins the battle!
Sonic: "That's it, you're going down. I don't even care about that coin-thief."
Orlando Florida heals his friend by 102%... And then unleashes White Air on everyone!
Metal Man (GM): FYI: Julian's attack dealt a whopping 4 damage instead of 2 due to the weakness of the Gold Guy.
Aribar goes to join in on the battle (SPD 21), but is frozen by that...
Metal Man (GM): It looks like you created a small army of ice statues.
Julian Sawyer: *GAK.*
Orlando Florida: *Said that...*
Metal Man (GM): This is where things go nuts. http://www.ffshrine.org/ff9/ff9/ff9-04-16-final_battle.mid The door behind you opens, and two Grodus bots join in on the battle... on their own side!
Grodus-Bot A: "Terminate intruders."
Grodus-Bot B: "Destroy."
Metal Man (GM): He's frozen, and loses a turn. The Grodus bots turn to Orlando.
Grodus-A: "Destroy strongest intruder."
Orlando Florida: "I'm friend!"
Julian Sawyer: .oO(This place is -CENSORED- crazy...)
Grodus-B: "Detain prisoner."
Orlando Florida: "I'll leave peacefully..."
Metal Man (GM): Grodus A fires a bolt of lightning at Orlando, dealing 40% damage.
Orlando Florida: "Gah!"
Metal Man (GM): Grodus B also fires a bolt of lightning at Orlando for 40% damage. he's frozen too.
Gibby is laughing on the inside.
Metal Man (GM): We get down to Golden Guy...
Golden Guy: "Do not fear. I shall damage them."
Orlando Florida: "Okay."
Metal Man (GM): Golden Guy glows... and uses Golden Plate on the Groduses. Both of them will take double damage... as will their Grodus X's, for three round.
Orlando Florida casts Healmost on himself and tries to rush at Aribar to get his stuff back... Is that possible without the Thief quirk?
Metal Man (GM): One problem; it's frozen inside with Aribar. You will have to wait until next round to steal it back.
Orlando Florida then just uses Quake on Aribar... 108% Earth damage to him.
Metal Man (GM): New round. Sonic is unfrozen first.
Sonic: "I'll get you, cheater!"
Metal Man (GM): Sonic spins up into a homing attack and attacks Orlando four times.
Orlando Florida: "Fat chance, you slow---GAH!"
Metal Man (GM): 25% damage per hit... 50% for that 29. He got a wonder crit.
Orlando Florida is hit thrice.
Grodus-B: "Destroy inferior monster."
Metal Man (GM): Grodus-B fires lightning at golden guy, dealing only 20% damage. Grodus A fires lightning at Sonic, dealing 40% damage.
Sonic: "Ow! This is crazy! We've got three sides to this battle... take down the Golden Guy first! He's the weakest..."
Aribar: "Grr..." *The elf fires a Fire Elemental Blast at the Golden Guy.*
Metal Man (GM): Half damage due to his annoying golden sheen. But still, he's very weak... A good two more hits with that would blow him up.
Aribar: "...Electric Elemental Blast!" (70% Electric to Mr. Golden Guy of Doom +2.) "Gah! Out of magic..."
Orlando Florida: "...Stupid. Don't tell enemies your weaknesses!"
Gibby keeps his focus on the gold dude... he wants revenge on him. Three more gun shots.
Sonic: "Finish that evil robot off!"
Metal Man (GM): Hit hit hit, double damage each... GoldenGuy explodes, throwing 100,000 coins everywhere.
Julian Sawyer: "Whoa..."
Metal Man (GM): Each action you use to pick up coins nets you 100 coins.
Orlando Florida: "...He was expendable." *He attempts to get his stuff back from Aribar now that he's alive and unfrozen...*
Metal Man (GM): Orlando and Aribar: Opposed SPD checks.
Orlando Florida: "Hah!"
Metal Man (GM): You steal your stuff back, though it cost you an action.
Orlando Florida uses his second action to equip it all... And his third to cast Sidestep on himself. His AC is raised by 6.
Sonic: "Give that stuff back!"
Orlando Florida: "It is mine!"
Metal Man (GM): Sonic attacks Orlando yet some more. 25% per hit.
Orlando Florida dodges all but the last one.
Metal Man (GM): Grodus B glows... he's surrounded by Grodus X's now.
Orlando Florida: "You're just a slow, pathetic animal!"
Metal Man (GM): The gold plating is gone. Grodus A copies Grodus B.
Sonic: "I'll show you!"
Aribar gets out the Wand of Wonder and releases two Star Storms at Grodus A...
Metal Man (GM): The force field absorbs 40 damage from each attack... so it only takes 77 damage.
Gibby notices all the coins on the ground... and uses all three of his actions to grab them. Yeah, he's greedy.
Metal Man (GM): You can attack the Grodus Xes as well.
Gibby: "Money money money MONEY..."
Orlando Florida: "...I shall give you ten-thousand coins if you resign from this battle, greedy one!"
Aribar: "...He lies! Don't listen to him, Gibby!"
Orlando Florida: "...Twenty-thousand!"
Metal Man (GM): Gibby gets 300 coins!
Gibby: "Well I'm not going to trust you... obviously."
Orlando Florida: "...Fifty-thousand!"
Gibby: "Shut up!"
Orlando Florida: "...A million."
Julian Sawyer: *Looks around for something he could use as an item.*
Metal Man (GM): Targets: Orlando, Grodus A, Grodus B, the various X shaped things protecting the Grodus things. You could use the coins, but they're not too useful. There aren't any other items laying around.
Julian Sawyer: "Right then... Let's see if this works like it's supposed to..." *Plucks the fedora off his head, revealing short, spiky black hair, and presses the feather in between his fingers. A blade pops out around the rim, and Julian throws it, aiming at Orlando and both Grodus bots.*
Orlando Florida easily sidesteps the blade thanks to his enchantment. "Hah! You cannot hit me!"
Metal Man (GM): Grodus A takes the damage -40. The force field around Grodus B protects him completely.
Julian Sawyer: *Catches the hat on its return and puts it back on.*
Metal Man (GM): Oh, right.
Orlando Florida heals himself with a Healmost. He then fires a HUGE explosion at Aribar, Gibby, Julian, Sonic, and the first Grodus. 108% to all of them.
Metal Man (GM): The first Grodus only takes 68%, Sonic takes the full damage.
Orlando Florida then downs a Green Potion, ending his turn.
Metal Man (GM): Julian: If that's above your HP, roll a STR check.
Aribar looks on the verge of death, but lives.
Sonic: "Hey, you two robot dudes! Look how powerful he is! Let's put aside our obvious hatred and kill him!"
Julian Sawyer: *Killed extremely well.*
Orlando Florida: "But I am just trying to escape!"
Metal Man (GM): Well, Julian, it's a good thing you had a turn in reserve... because you lose the action for that anyway.
Grodus-A: "Must Prevent Prisoner from escaping."
Grodus-B: "Target aligned."
Orlando Florida: "If you allow me to get away from here unhar---... The prisoner being me, huh?"
Metal Man (GM): Sonic used one action convincing the Groduses.
Orlando Florida: "...Piffle."
Metal Man (GM): Sonic then spins up a spindash for two rounds... and lets it go at Orlando! ...And then flies into a pit and takes 20 damage from that.
Aribar jumps back from the attack.
Orlando Florida: *Does that...* "Have a nice fall, slowpoke?"
Metal Man (GM): Grodus B and A open fire on Orlando with all their Grodus Xes. 60% damage from the Grodus A beams... 75% from the Grodus B beams... Then 80% from the both of them firing lightning at Orlando.
Orlando Florida: *Badges activated! Dead mage!*
Metal Man (GM): Orlando reappears, minus a life.
Aribar chugs down a green potion and fires two Magic Missiles at his arch nemesis.
Gibby looks at Orlando with hatred in his eyes. "Spoony THIS!" He shoots him three times.
Orlando Florida: "GAH!" *He is nailed three times!*
Sonic: "It looks like everybody hates him now..."
Metal Man (GM): Julian's (single) turn. He lost his other turn's action when he died. He takes his first turn reappearing. He may do his turn as normal now.
Julian Sawyer: "..." *Just keeps silent, saving his questions for later, and attacks with another Hat Trick.*
Metal Man (GM): Grodus A takes 0 damage due to the force field, as does Grodus B... while Orlando dodges.
Orlando Florida: "See, robots? Your 'allies' turn on you!"
Grodus-A: "We are expendable."
Grodus-B: "As are you."
Orlando Florida: "How dare you say that?!"
Grodus-A: "Kuja is 10 times stronger than you."
Orlando Florida casts Healmost on himself and then another White Air! 54% Ice damage to all, 40% freeze chance.
Grodus-B: "You have also been duly paid for. The payment of one Smash Dex was worth it."
Metal Man (GM): The attack blows up all the Grodus X's. The Groduses are vulnerable now!
Aribar survives the attack... Barely.
Gibby ...not so much.
Orlando Florida: "You've earned your doom all of you!"
Metal Man (GM): Yyyup. Sonic attacks Grodus A with a ton of Spindashes. Two hits... one is a crit. 75% damage to the 'bot. Grodus B regains a single Grodus X, then shoots lightning at Orlando for 40% electric damage. Grodus A copies that, dealing another 40% electric damage to Orlando.
Aribar: "Magic Missile!" *Three more missiles at Orlando.*
Orlando Florida dies... Again.
Metal Man (GM): Orlando reappears.
Gibby: "Welcome back!" *He continues showing his hatred of Orlando by shooting him three more times.*
Orlando Florida is hit thrice."Aaaugh! I shall drag every single one of you with me if I fall!"
Julian Sawyer: *Decides to try his hand at the Bottle Smash again, and attacks a Grodus X with a bottle.*
Metal Man (GM): It counter-attacks you with a laser for 20 damage. Again.
Orlando Florida goes all-out on all of his foes... Two White Airs! 54% Ice twice (108%), and two chances of freezin'.
Metal Man (GM): Okay. You're upgraded to a regular miss, Julian. Ouch... you do nail those Groduses.
Aribar dies... One life left.
Metal Man (GM): The Groduses are now, once again, without cover. Julian: What's your HP at right now?
Orlando Florida: "You shall all bow down to me! I, Orlando Florida, Archmage of the Thieves of Whaller!"
Gibby: "Somebody shut him up!"
Julian Sawyer: *Perishes again. Down to 1 life.*
Metal Man (GM): Sonic continues harassing the Grodus A. 100 damage! Whoo! Grodus B regains a Grodus X and shoots lightning at Orlando for 40 more damage. Grodus A shoots Sonic instead, but, similar effect. Grodus A is nearly dead.
Aribar fires two Starstorms at it.
Metal Man (GM): *NUKE* It explodes. Grodus A.
Gibby shoots at Orlando three more times... if he's not dead after this, then it's goodbye everybody.
Aribar: *Badges activated...*
Julian Sawyer: *Revives!* "Gah! That's getting really annoying!"
Metal Man (GM): Well... that takes care of his turn.
Gibby: "Damn." *He puts his gun away.*
Orlando Florida decides to end this. First he casts Healmost on himself for 108%, and raises his Omega Staff into the air... It glows... And a white light begins to engulf Orlando... He has used a secret spell: Be Dragon... Guess what it does? He begins transforming into a huge, blue dragon. His claws and, teeth, and horns have a yellowish tint...
Gibby looks up at the Orlando dragon. "...that figures."
Julian Sawyer: "...Ok, that's just plain unfair."
Grodus B: "...Do not attack me. I shall help you destroy the infidel."
Orlando Florida breaths out a powerful breath weapon: Ice. The dragon unleashes an ice wave of freezing air upon everyone for 36% Ice damage and a 30% chance of freezing.
Metal Man (GM): The shield around Grodus B protects him from being frozen.
Gibby dies for the last time.
Julian Sawyer: "Fu-" *Frozen.*
Metal Man (GM): Grodus B glows.... And Orlando is frozen in time. *NEXT ROUND* Everyone is unfrozen. Sonic attacks Orlando with four homing dashes. 10% per hit. The 37 was a wonder crit.
Orlando Florida is only hit twice.
Metal Man (GM): Incorrect. He's unfrozen by the next round. If he was frozen in time still, the attack wouldn't have touched him. For the sake of the space-time continuum. His single X fires a laser at Orlando for 20 damage. He gains another X, then zaps Orlando for 40% electric damage.
Grodus-B: "Terminate the prisoner and I will let you go. He appears to be a class IV third."
Aribar: "Fire Elemental Blast! Magic Missile!" *The elf fires them at the dragon... The Fire has a tremendous result on the icy foe.*
Gibby died three times.
Metal Man (GM): Unless he's dead too... @_@
Julian Sawyer: *Tries to hit with a Bottle Smash for the 3RD time.*
Metal Man (GM): You're in luck. You smash the bottle on a Grodus X.
Orlando Florida is missed if that is aimed at me.
Metal Man (GM): Oh... then you miss Orlando.
Julian Sawyer: "Gah! Stay still!"
Metal Man (GM): The battle has all but destroyed the area around you.
Orlando Florida launches three breath attacks of Lightning at his foes... 162% lightning times three. 486% Electric.
Aribar: "...Thanks for the recharge!"
Metal Man (GM): The attack nukes everybody but Sonic and Aribar.
Sonic: "You're going down!"
Julian Sawyer: *OMG 3RD DEATH.*
Aribar: "...I've a lot of revivin' to do."
Metal Man (GM): Sonic suddenly glows... though not Super....
Sonic: "Take this... and this... and this... and THIS! SONIC TORNADO!"
Orlando Florida blinks, bewildered.
Metal Man (GM): Sonic starts spinning around Orlando... a huge tornado is created.... Orlando is picked up and spun around, hitting walls and being hit by air projectiles. 360% damage from the attack.
Orlando Florida is down... He doesn't get back up.
Aribar: "Revive! Sacrifice!"
Metal Man (GM): Sonic pants... he's at 1/10th of his full HP...
Aribar revives Gibby, and then uses his Sacrifice to kill himself for the last time and revive Julius.
Metal Man (GM): Azure: You gain 800 EXP for the Golden Guy battle and what you participated in.
Gibby awakens, and gets up from the ground. "Wha... what happened? Am I dead?"
Metal Man (GM): Aribar: You still get a fraction of the EXP, but that's 500 EXP.
Orlando Florida slowly morphs back to his human form... He's passed out on the ground.
Gibby pinches himself. "OW! Guess not..."
Metal Man (GM): Azure is alive. Gibby gains 2000 EXP from surviving that insane battle. Julian gains 2000 as well... that battle was insane.
Julian Sawyer: *Blinks a few times upon revival, then stands himself back up, walks over to Orlando's now prone body, and starts kicking him in the ribs.*
Metal Man (GM): He makes a rather satisfying noise as you kick him.
Gibby looks all around. "Wow... talk about a big mess."
Sonic: "...Well, the way to Saturn Valley is clear."
Aribar is also on the ground, quite dead... At least Orlando is knocked out!
Azure pops back up "Nice..."
Metal Man (GM): Unfortunately... the coins all were melted.
Gibby walks over to Ari.
Metal Man (GM): Besides those Gibby greedily pocketed.
Gibby: "Oh no! Ari's dead!"
Julian Sawyer: "Take this you -CENSORED-!" *Insert kicks in spaces.*
Metal Man (GM): Sonic picks up Aribar.
Julian Sawyer: *After satisfying his kicking quota, Julian does a once over on the body with his Thief skill for salvageable items.*
Gibby looks to Julian. "I like your style. What's your name, kid?"
Metal Man (GM): Aribar: You handle whatever happens when he tries to steal stuff.
Sonic: "Drag whatever is left of that loser to Saturn Valley... he's in perfect condition for sending back home."
Metal Man (GM): Sonic begins walking through the devastation towards Saturn Valley.
Julian Sawyer: "Will do..."
Orlando Florida: *You find various badges... Potions... Mushrooms... A really cool staff. Do you take any?*
Julian Sawyer: *Takes it all, not wanting to leave Orlando with anything useful... maybe he can pawn the staff. After pocketing the various items, Julian grabs Orland by his feet and starts dragging him, following the blue hedgehog.*
Aribar (GM): Julian: ... 10 Speed checks.
Metal Man (GM): *Mini-Enemy Interlude* As the Questers leave the burnt, riddled land where that battle took place.... *THUNK.*
Metal Man (GM): A very burnt and messed up Doopliss falls from the ceiling.
Doopliss: "Ohhh man... last time I sit up here while people are shooting lightning and fire at everything..."
Metal Man (GM): -Back to the Questers, as Julian is trying to steal from Orlando-
Orlando Florida: *... You get frozen in ice for 10% damage as you try and grab a Blue Potion... I assume that you instinctively draw your hand back?*
Sonic: "It's a good thing we beat up all those thugs..."
Julian Sawyer: *Does so* "Ah!"
Orlando Florida: *Apparently Orlando has trapped all of his stuff so others do not use it. .*
Sonic: "...Now you know why stealing is wrong."
Azure: "Yeah... maybe so. But ummm... what about the valley? Don't you think its gonna be protected a bit more?"
Sonic: "Beats me."
Metal Man (GM): You walk out into a green valley.
Julian Sawyer: "It's what I do... and it's apparently less useful here than back home..."
Metal Man (GM): It's a beautiful day. There's a few huts up ahead.
Julian Sawyer: *Follows the others, draggin' Orlando by his feet.*
Metal Man (GM): The grass is green... the air is fresh...
Azure: "Its a nice place... reminds me of Ramoua back home..."
Orlando Florida is dragged across the ground, and no doubt over many rocks.
Metal Man (GM): The sky is blue. It's a great place to be. You reach the huts.
Julian Sawyer: *You got that right.*
Metal Man (GM): A weird... 1-foot tall weird thing with a bow appears out of a hut.
Gibby: "Ahhh... peace..."
Mr. Saturn: "HelLo. CoME wHaT FoR?"
Azure "Well ...anyone left to explain this best?" *He looks around.* "Aribar?"
Julian Sawyer: "...What the hell is that?"
Mr. Saturn: "I aM MR. saTuRn, bEiNg hUmAn ."
Aribar is dead... Sonic is carrying him. He's free to steal from, and his stuff isn't trapped!
Mr. Saturn: "I cAn CuRe FrIeNDs MoNEy fOR."
Julian Sawyer: "...And what is a Mr. Saturn?"
Azure: "You can do that? How much?"
Mr. Saturn: "Boing! I aM Mr. SaTuRN."
Julian Sawyer: "...Ok, how about healing that guy?" *Gestures towards the KO'd Aribar.*
Mr. Saturn: "115 CoINs, foR cUrInG Guy. BOING!"
Azure: "Here." *He hands 115 coins over.*
Gibby takes out a bag with 115 coins, and hands it to Saturn.
Metal Man (GM): Mr. Saturn takes BOTH of them... He heals Aribar with some weird dance. Aribar regains two lives! And wakes up, seeing the crystal blue sky.
Gibby: "Ari, how you feeling?"
Sonic: "It's a good thing these Mr. Saturns were here, otherwise we would have had to drag you all the way home..."
Azure: "Can you cure me a little. I've been hurt a bit more than it appears." *He holds out another 115.*
Mr. Saturn: "Kay-o! Boing!"
Metal Man (GM): He dances again, and Azure regains another life and is at full HP.
Gibby: "Me too!" *Hands him 345 coins more.*
Aribar: "...Is this heaven or--AAH! GIBBY'S HERE! IT'S HELL!"
Mr. Saturn: "...Kay-o aGaIn. Boing!"
Azure: "Thank you. I'm very grateful."
Julian Sawyer: "Why not, I'll take some too." *Hands over 345 currency units.*
Metal Man (GM): Mr. Saturn dances yet some more... Gibby regains two lives...
Metal Man (GM): *Repeat yet again* Julian regains two lives.
Julian Sawyer: *Is careful to drop Orlando at this point.*
Gibby flexes and stuff. "Yeah... I feel good!"
Azure: *Just adds another 115 to regain his third.*
Mr. Saturn: "WhAt dO yOu NeeD eLse?"
Aribar: "...What happened? The last thing I remember is that I sacrificed my own life to revive that new fellow..."
Metal Man (GM): Azure gains his third life back.
Azure: "Thank you. We are all very grateful."
Sonic: "We dragged his body here, just like we were supposed to do."
Aribar looks at Orlando... "We need him stabilized, and sent to another world... Whaller, if you've heard of it."
Gibby: "Yeah, well you died, and Azure and I paid for you to have your lives back."
Doopliss: *Leaps out of the bushes* "Hahah! I have found you! ...Ow."
Aribar: "Th-thank you... How can I ever rep--..."
Metal Man (GM): Doopliss winces... he's all burnt up and cut.
Azure: "Not this guy again...."
Gibby: "You already did."
Doopliss: "I will... ...somewhat hurt you... yeah!"
Aribar gets out the Wand of Wonder.
Azure: "It looks like he had a trip through the cave and slipped every wire..."
Aribar: "...Doopliss, not now."
Metal Man (GM): He moves to attack, and then slips and falls on his face.
Aribar: "My arch nemesis just faced us."
Julian Sawyer: "...Who's this guy?"
Doopliss: "Awww... but Kuja wants me to do it... and I'm your Arch Nemesis!"
Aribar: "My other arch nemesis."
Doopliss: "No fair!"
Aribar points to Orlando. "He was first."
Doopliss: *Kicks a rock, then hops on one foot.*
Azure: "From what I gather mister... umm I haven't gotten your name. His name is Doopliss... he's not as annoying as everyone portrays him to be."
Doopliss: "I would kill you, but all those lightning bolts were painful."
Julian Sawyer: "Can I kick him?"
Doopliss: "...You dare kick an injured Duplighost?"
Aribar: "Which reminds me... Did you know Kuja was going to kill me earlier and leave nothing for you?"
Azure: "I guess... but he looks badly beaten as it is. Let's let him be for now."
Doopliss: "...What? Who cares... I'm only a part-time associate anyway. I just want to kill you."
Aribar: "Doesn't everyone?"
Doopliss: "...But my foot hurts. You! Mr. Saturn. Heal me!"
Mr. Saturn: "NO, wEirDo. Boing!"
Doopliss: "Why you little!"
Metal Man (GM): Doopliss kicks it... it shoots a column of fire at him.
Metal Man (GM): He runs off, on fire.
Aribar: "What are you going to do? Imitate him so you can go, 'BoI---..."
Gibby: "I needed a good laugh."
Aribar: "You've almost gotta feel sorry for the guy... He's washed up."
Metal Man (GM): brb now...
Gibby: "Yeah... ALMOST!"
Aribar: "...I hope I didn't hurt his feelings."
Julian Sawyer: "Eh... So now what?"
Gibby: "Well I'm going to take a nap."
VG is right now in the Stadium Gym, getting his three foot frame a workout on the track.
Cornelius freaks, his controls are a little bouncy.
VG attempts to break his record... he just needs one good speed burst...
Cornelius grabs his umbrella and jumps out, letting his ship, the Puddle Jumper, land close to the HQ. He opens his umbrella.
VG breaks his record! He makes a quick stop in the shower, gets clean, and dry. "Ah... that felt good."
Cornelius landed softly. He freaks looking for his engine. He looks inside his ship, mangled next to the HQ.
VG: "Hmm... I better check on Wolfman now; he shouldn't be comatose that long..."
Cornelius: "Great, now where am I gonna find a 12 gauge molecular monkey snot generating pig ran hamster jumping triangular dervish module!"
VG starts to make his way when... *WARP He gets warped into the Big Room, which is the command center so to speak.*
Cornelius sits next to his ship, sadly, opening his umbrella, shading him from the sunlight.
Mewtwo: "Sorry to have to do that to you... but there has been a disturbance outside. Could you please check it out?"
VG: "Gotcha." *He makes his way to the front door... he opens it, seeing... .oO(The Puddle Jumper? Who keeps on making up these strange names?) He slowly approaches this ship, wondering why a fighter-type ship would be filled with... smiling faces.* "Hello? Is anyone there?"
Cornelius stands up. "NO HURT ME!" He opens his blue umbrella. He shivers behind it.
VG backs away slightly at the loud voice. "Umm... there isn't a need to worry."
Cornelius's voice is shrill, kinda like Kirby's. He closes his 'Brella.
VG: "You just happened to have crashed right by a famous tourist attraction. It's alright; I'm not going to hurt you."
Cornelius: "Hmm, I never knew... is this the Greylokian Space Rest Stop/Gas Station?"
VG: "...I've never heard of a Greylokian anything in my life."
Cornelius: "WHAT?! Are you sure this isn't Greylok?"
VG backs up slightly... "I'm positive. This is Nintendus."
Cornelius: "Oh grand!" *He kicks his ship.*
Wolfman (GM): ...the Greylokian equivalent of "Danger Will Robinson! Danger!" plays for a few seconds.
Cornelius: "Great, it's malfunctioning again Do you have a 12 gauge molecular monkey snot generating pig ran hamster jumping triangular dervish module inside somewhere?"
VG: "...I'm unsure, and I use lots of items. Anyway, who are you exactly? The name here is VG."
Cornelius: "Well, I am Cornelius Klutzington, but most people call me either Cornbread, or Ship Wrecker. I am not very famous within the Greylokian Space Cadets."
VG: "I think Cornelius will be easier for me."
Cornelius: "Well, I can't leave until I get that Module..."
VG: "Anyway, I think we can take care of your ship... hang on a second. You might be stuck here for a while, so at least we're going to move it."
Cornelius: "Yeah, but how... it would take a million men to push this thing."
VG gets out a portable device that is a combination encyclopedia, PDA, and know-it-all... and speaks into it. "Mewtwo, any chance you can teleport this ship to one of the garages?"
Cornelius: "Mewtwo? what the heck is a Mewtwo?"
Mewtwo: "Teleporting now."
Wolfman (GM): Cornelius: I'm assuming you are off of the ship, right? as in, not touching it? good: the ship has *WARPED* out.
Cornelius blinks "Nice technology."
VG: "There's more where that came from; trust me."
VG: "Anyway, we might as well get you to our home."
Cornelius trots over to VG, putting his 'Brella on his back.
VG starts walking to the home... the Stadium.
Cornelius: "Hmm, a Stadium? You guys fight?"
VG: "Not everyone... but a good majority do. Usually, I help oversee the fights."
Cornelius: "Is this like fight for money and stuff, like tournaments."
VG: "It can be."
Cornelius: "Hmm, that's interesting... back on Greylok, we do sports."
VG: "Perhaps you can explain them some other time... we are here."
Wolfman (GM): Cornelius: welcome to the front doors.
Cornelius looks in amazement. "Nicer than my barracks room."
VG: "You haven't even been inside yet! Now come on." *He opens the doors.*
Cornelius follows "Wow."
VG: "Welcome to the Stadium Lobby."
Cornelius: "Nice... but do you have room for me?"
VG: "There are guest rooms available..."
Cornelius: "Oh ok."
VG: "...but do you mean... well, more full time?"
Cornelius: "Well, sure, all I have are these." *He hands you some coins that look like cheetos.* "Do you take Qualms?"
VG gets a look at them... "...not exactly."
Wolfman (GM): right now, we are kind of walking in A Wing gift shop on the left, restaurant on the right.
Cornelius: "Ok, thats good."
VG: "Hmm... I have an idea. You said you are good with sports, right?"
Cornelius: "A little... called 'Brella Fencing"
VG: "What is that?" *He is curious.*
Cornelius: "Well, it's a style taught by the Greylokian Military, it's also a fighting style... our only weapon against the Spaldings..."
Cornelius: "It mixes a Fencing style with our Battle 'Brellas"
VG turns left.
Wolfman (GM): forget pleasantries and proper RPing here we go down an Elevator, I temporarily lower security.
Cornelius just stands quietly.
Wolfman (GM): you meet Mewtwo, which is basically a strange white/purple creature with cat-like eyes and a long tail. you learn that he is one of the main managers/overseers of the team called the Super Smash Questers, or Questers for short. he knows of your predicament, and offers you an invitation to join right now until you get ready to go back.
Cornelius: *and I get interested in joining these "Questers."*
Wolfman (GM): well... you don't have to your call right now Fancy fanfare.
Wolfman (GM): okay, you are in. if you have to go, now is a good time.
Charles Magellean: *Final Fantasy XI - Awakening He stares outside the base's big window. He gazes to one of the stars. ---> Monologue time.* "How long's it been? Seems like twenty more years. When I left the moon 25 years ago to become stronger, I'd hope I'd find a new home. I was 25 then... Somehow, I'm still that same age. I've been keeping a very dark secret about my race bottled up for a long time. Bob's been asking a lot about each time one of the surface fiends are destroyed, he looks to what are like fireflies on with a red glow. Coming here was a mistake, but I have to acknowledge for myself only by sight if my race must be atoned. The mistake of not coming here sooner... not being stronger... not being there when my people needed the help. Until I reach the Phantom Beast God Bahamut's altar, I won't be able to receive the strength to penetrate the Crystals of the Moon's seal on the core." ---> Monologue end. "Bob, are you still wondering about the Lunar Palace, the pyreflies, and what's happening back on Nintendus?"
Bob, Lord of Electric Death: "Rationally, I need data to understand what's going on. So yes."
Charles Magellean: "Personally, Nintendus is doomed no matter what the idiotic Adventurers do."
Bob, Lord of Electric Death: "...But how?"
Charles Magellean: "They live in a dream, Bob. A dream from when they awakened, they will find themselves in a greater nightmare. The Good Future as there was had extreme peace. Now, Einsaught will become a catalyst that will be declared the first sign of Kuja's New World."
Bob, Lord of Electric Death: "...I must warn them!"
Charles Magellean: "It's funny how even one move you make, your opponent always has the better hand. They're already aware of Eisnaught's attack."
Bob, Lord of Electric Death: "...What can we do?"
Charles Magellean: "I've talked with Nova yesterday."
Bob, Lord of Electric Death: "Even I, a tentacle of the former villain SIMBER, wish for Kuja to not take over..."
Charles Magellean: "...We can only watch from a distance. I tried to help, and it only caused a super Doomship to form. I will never forgive Hunter's actions for destroying the one marksmanship of the Lunarian pride... and heritage."
Bob, Lord of Electric Death: "What was that?"
Charles Magellean: "Valhalla Fortress was destroyed. It crashed into Zio's castle."
Bob, Lord of Electric Death: "..."
Charles Magellean: "In all his effort, it didn't even slow down Zio."
???: "I hear many a sorrow on your heart, Lunarian."
Bob, Lord of Electric Death: "Who is that?"
???: "Perhaps I can help."
Metal Man (GM): ...Out of the darkness steps a pitch black hedgehog.
Shadow: "I... am Shadow. Survivor of the Thirteen Gentlemen. I have the other four emeralds. I have kept them out of Kuja's grasp... and have escaped here."
Metal Man (GM): Shadow gets onto one knee... out of weakness.
Shadow: "I cannot hold out much longer. He already destroyed the realm I was hiding in. If it is doomed, we can at least keep these emeralds out of his grasp."
Metal Man (GM): Shadow barely gets up, and limps over.
Charles Magellean: "You hold instruments of Nintendus."
Shadow: "I use them to evade Kuja's grasp. And to warn you. If Nintendus falls, this place is next... the true Earth... If it is destroyed, he will eliminate a long line of competition. You, me, Sonic, Metal, Eggman, Aribar..."
Charles Magellean adjusts his glasses.
Shadow: "I have seen it myself. My abilities are stretched thin. I have used almost all my life force, but I saw him destroying Earth. I was created by Gerald to stop him from succeeding. He is using Kuja... and Kuja is using him. If... *Cough* you can rouse something... we can stop them... by throwing a stick in their wheel..."
Charles Magellean: "Even if I believe you, there is nothing we can do."
Bob, Lord of Electric Death: "He appears to be physically weak from supernatural means. His life energy is low, and his muscles have all been used enough for hundreds of years for a normal being."
Shadow: "...We can save this place... even if Nintendus falls..."
Charles Magellean: "I've alienated that planet from my mind. It is nothing more than a bad memory. As for my homeworld, it is already dead."
Shadow: "I am also already dead... you know. But we can prevent him from defiling the dead. You would not want him using Lunarian powers, would you? We Thirteen... we sacrificed ourselves intentionally... To prevent Him from coming... Lumis... he was the one who revived Kuja. He has doomed us all!!"
Metal Man (GM): That yell echoes ominously.
Charles Magellean: "I have no idea who you speak of. As for here." *He stands up.*
Shadow: "You must see him. I have seen what he did to you! He has erased himself from your memory."
Charles Magellean: "It would make sense, yet I can see he must've had good reason to do it."
Shadow: "You are the only means of stopping Kuja... if you do not know him, then you will find no reason to harm Kuja. He and Kuja both tried to kill me. My immortality has waned from this."
Metal Man (GM): He coughs again. You can see some white hairs.
Shadow: "He sent Metallix to kill me. Everything is after me... just like it is after you."
Charles Magellean: "Nintendus the beehive."
Shadow: "Nintendus is cursed!"
Charles Magellean: "Once a stranger enters and becomes one of its residents, you can never leave."
Charles Magellean: "The drones will just mindlessly get you within their grasp."
Shadow: "We must abolish that... but it cannot be without destroying the one who blocks us. We do not need to set foot in there. Kuja uses an otherworldly castle to hide from the Questers."
Charles Magellean points to Shadow.
Shadow: "That... realm... is Pandemonium... the Castle frozen in time!"
Metal Man (GM): Shadow falls over.
Charles Magellean: "You are one of its drones. I will do take no part in your radical campaigns."
Shadow: "Kuja... is why... Nintendus draws on us all. If you kill him... you will be free... I didn't want to tell you... but it must be now."
Charles Magellean: "He cannot be killed."
Bob, Lord of Electric Death: "What about that Zeromus guy? He's stronger... why not have him attack Kuja?"
Charles Magellean: "Zer---there is only Zemus. Do not even joke about it Bob! Yes he can kill Kuja."
Bob, Lord of Electric Death: "Oh, right. Zemus."
Charles Magellean: "The consequences of that action is an even more unstoppable, more mindless being to ravage existence."
Shadow: "Unless they destroy eachother? If they created a black hole, it would rip them both to shreds and tear them from any nearby realm of existence. That was how they destroyed many of my fellow members."
Charles Magellean: "That option is not even available, let alone me considering."
Shadow: "I... and Zio... and Meier Link... are the only ones left."
Charles Magellean: "The seal of the Moon's Core is impenetrable by outsiders. Not even a Tranced Kuja could break it."
Shadow: "Something must be done. Anything. This is not Nintendus. Nintendus has become a flaw in the dimensions as it is. ...But... if you do not seek my way, then you shall be left to your own devices."
Metal Man (GM): Shadow gets up.
Shadow: "So long, Lunarian and hologram. Perhaps some day you shall see the horrors which you have unleashed on all."
Metal Man (GM): Shadow turns... limping out.
Charles Magellean: "Then I would appreciate that you, a memory of that Hell, to be healed up... and took your ramblings elsewhere. I've been told that the Phantom God himself can be summoned. If that is true, then there is truly nothing we can do. Forgive me... Shadow the Hedgehog." *He bows.*
Shadow: "Perhaps... Kuja controls you as he controls the Shadow God. If he is a God to you... then you are forced into compliance. Unless you would want his wrath as well as Kuja's. I shall... return. When Kuja is dead. I shall come to you with his head."
Charles Magellean: "Shadow..."
Shadow: "If I am dead, then there is no rest for anyone's dread."
Charles Magellean turns his head.
Shadow: "I seal this holy vow upon this spot, and none but myself can break the seal with the completion of this."
Charles Magellean: "I value my life. There is no action that can be done against that 'God Kuja' without it being suicidal."
Metal Man (GM): A sort of weird energy flows, pools around a spot in the floor... then disappears.
Shadow: "Then it is good that I am dead. For I cannot commit suicide."
Metal Man (GM): He then disappears on the spot.
Bob, Lord of Electric Death: "...Peculiar, he is. That thing he wove there is an invisible plaque engraved atop an invisible pedestal. Some sort of energy is in there. It's sealed. ...An interesting report has come in."
Charles Magellean: "I am a different person than when I was before I saw the truth about the Questers."
Bob, Lord of Electric Death: "The enemies now avoid being within 50 feet of this place. They do not attack anything within this area."
Charles Magellean: "I would've helped on the spot. May the lords have mer---yes?"
Bob, Lord of Electric Death: "I believe he has made this spot holy. I don't know why... and asking how would make my computers overheat on the spot. But the energy coming from that spot is unbearable for all that is truly evil. Now then. continue with your thoughts. If the world is coming to an end, at least I can record them for you."
Charles Magellean: "Kuja has no point in destroying the Earth. They have even less defenses than Nintendus. Take note. The next reminder of that horrible realm is to be burninated on the spot."
Bob, Lord of Electric Death: "Burninated. Right."
Metal Man (GM): *WARP.*
Doopliss: *Appears, on fire, running around.*
Bob, Lord of Electric Death: "...Why did that happen?"
Doopliss: "Ahhhh!!! That Mr. Saturn set me on fire, then I tripped and fell into that pillar of light! Last... time... I... go... to... Saturn... Valley!"
Charles Magellean: "Like a moth to a flame. Enter another unholy heathen from the Hell that is a planet."
Metal Man (GM): He shakes himself off, then looks at you.
Charles Magellean: "At least this one did not come on its own."
Doopliss: "Unholy heathen? No wonder why I get a whole 'church' vibe from here. If I wasn't so attracted to them, I'd be running around burning from the holy energy."
Charles Magellean: "Actually that would be the invisible holy thing that's on top of the invisible pedestal."
Doopliss: "...You mean this?" *He walks over to where it is, and reads it, then pokes it, as if it's real* "...Must be from living in Creepy Steeple. Despite haunting every square inch of that chapel, all of that holy stuff contaminated me. Unclean! UNCLEAN!!!" *He flails a bit* "...Well, being a priest yourself, Charles, I can't harm you. So... uhhh... do you have anything to say?"
Charles Magellean: "...Do you have a trip home?"
Doopliss: "The pedestal works both ways, but only... *Gulp* holy people can use it. I can use it, yes. I think I was summoned here to prove a point of some kind. The magic which fated me to appear before you was not Kuja's or my own... and Gerald hates magic."
Charles Magellean: "The point was made. You miss being around me."
Doopliss: "To the extent he curses all gods and religions every day. ...Perhaps... Of course, it was only because I like doing what you used to do. Joining people's sides to cheat on them."
Doopliss: "I'm now a rich ghost who also has gained untold magical powers and knowledge. My Shadow Queen is dead now. I have her powers."
Charles Magellean: "Be in your way, reminder. You, Shadow, or even Yurie could not convince me of pseudo-horrors that could come here."
Doopliss: "Why I have both holy and dark powers is beyond me. I am more than a Shadow King. Perhaps... I should... no... that can't be!"
Charles Magellean: "Or to return back there."
Doopliss: "...Kill... Kuja..." *Wanders mindlessly towards the portal back* "Destroy... Kuja..."
Metal Man (GM): He glows with the powers of Darkness and Light combined. He holds out his hand, generating an interdimensional warp hole by himself. Then he walks through the portal, and disappears.
Charles Magellean: "I was able to leave Nintendus before it could permanently put me in psychosis."
Metal Man (GM): It dissipates as quickly as it came, but the magical power is unnatural. Also unreal, as it takes all of Nova's and Bob's powers combined to make one with technology.
Bob, Lord of Electric Death: "Sir... there is something very wrong, as you said."
Charles Magellean: "I'll say." *He goes over to the portal.*
Bob, Lord of Electric Death: "Shadow the Hedgehog has come from another world to warn us..."
Charles Magellean then points to the cappuccino maker. "The light here stopped blinking!"
Bob, Lord of Electric Death: "...It must be a horrible malfunction! Perhaps Doopliss or Shadow did something to it. Or... maybe we need a new one?" *Walks over to it, pokes it.*
Charles Magellean: "I believe it is for the best that I say: We must never discuss about any and all events/beings/places that come from Nintendus anymore."
Bob, Lord of Electric Death: "Well then. What about those... uhh... sports teams that existed 25 years ago on this moon?"
Charles Magellean: "There was no sports."
Bob, Lord of Electric Death: "...So much for that stock phrase. How are you doing?"
Charles Magellean: "I begin to think... that Nintendus should be put out of its misery."
Bob, Lord of Electric Death: "But... that's the same sort of mindset Kuja has. If you did the same, you would be self-perpe--... I see it now. You truly wish to destroy them for what they did to you and your beliefs. Well, I can only do as I am told, lest I become SIMBER's cousin. What else can I do for you?"
Charles Magellean: "It isn't as simple as that. I gave my heart out to that organization, and I received no respect."
Editor's Note: A funny way of repaying the people who spared him instead of destroying him as they had, up until his case, done to basically any Quester who went rogue.
Bob, Lord of Electric Death: "Do they know this?"
Charles Magellean: "They said they do not respect me. I helped Ivan defeat a monster, and he turns his back on me. Questers never said how they felt about me. All the while I was concerned for them deep down."
Bob, Lord of Electric Death: "The position of leader is a very impersonal one. Ivan may have lacked the time to do much for you. The Questers are beyond my comprehension."
Charles Magellean: "I give Yurie and Ari my prized achievement and an artifact of ancient Lunar technology."
Bob, Lord of Electric Death: "And Aribar destroyed it. But... wasn't it Kuja who would have taken it anyway? And Lynk had stolen it in the first place..."
Charles Magellean: "Yurie desecrates all it stood for, created a mega weapon without my permission, and Ari senselessly kills lives. Lynk... He was the catalyst that caused me to see the truths about that planet."
Bob, Lord of Electric Death: "But he also thwarted Kuja in ways the Questers seem unable to copy."
Charles Magellean: "I hate him, yes. But he opened my eyes to see that people disobey direct orders, make plans crumble, and put all your work for down a sewage drain."
Editor's Note: Very true, that happens aplenty. But is it worth throwing a temper tantrum at entire planets and organizations over the actions of a few evil/untrustworthy characters? That said, cutting this rambling short, since we get the idea of what Charles felt bothered him enough.
Metal Man (GM): Also, Ciel, if yer here, please say so. Well, there we go. Four people. It's continuation time yet again! At this point, the Questers have reached Saturn Valley. After briefly resting, it is time to get down to business-- get the Mr. Saturns to send Orlando and the Trance ability out of this realm. Everybody is in a hut, with the head Mr. Saturn on the other side of the table.
Mr. Saturn: "Greetings, Questers. As you can see, I have learned the ways of your speech, in order to be more polite."
Mr. Saturn: "I hear you came from far away for an important matter. What is it?"
Aribar: .oO(Good... I can't do that BoInG stuff anyways...) "For two reasons... The first one is... Well, you've heard of Kuja, right?"
Mr. Saturn: "The lord of suffering? Yes! He must be stopped..."
Aribar: "Well, we've been... Accidentally powering him up with a special form called Trance."
Mr. Saturn: "...It would make sense... he has become stronger every day."
Aribar: "We were hoping you had the power to replace it with something similar."
Mr. Saturn: "We have the power to do so, once the ability to use Trance has been sent away."
Azure: "So only until trance is gone will you be able too?"
Mr. Saturn: "Correct."
Julian Sawyer: *Keeping silent at this point, having no idea what is going on.*
Mr. Saturn: "Once Trance is gone, the gap it will leave will be good enough for a new mode."
Mr. Saturn: "We must hurry... anything else that must be disposed of?"
King Demon shall be quiet while Saturn and Ari negotiate.
Mr. Saturn: "I have sent for the warp-gatherers immediately."
Aribar: "Yes, this mage..." *He points to Orlando, who he assumes is on the floor...*
Mr. Saturn: "The bringer of Suffering must be limited from all avenues possible."
Metal Man (GM): *Correct.*
Mr. Saturn: "Very well. This way!"
Metal Man (GM): The Mr. Saturn, who has a crown, begins walking out of the hut and towards a stone temple.
Aribar: "We believe that if we transport him back to my home world, Whaller, Kuja's power will weaken at least somewhat."
Mr. Saturn: "...Yes. We must hurry!"
Metal Man (GM): He's moving rather quickly.
Azure: "Well who's picking him up this time...."
Aribar picks up Orlando and half-drags, half-carries the mage and follows Mr. Saturn.
Sonic: "Not me. The last time I did that, he escaped..."
Metal Man (GM): Sonic follows you and the Saturn.
Azure: "Guess that's settled." *He follows behind the Saturn.*
King Demon follows whoever.
Metal Man (GM): The temple is ancient and ruined, filled with rubble.
Gibby: "Indeed." *He follows.*
Julian Sawyer: *Gets up from the table, and follows after the head with feet what wears a crown.*
Metal Man (GM): One path is clear, one that looks ancient. Mr. Saturns guard the way en masse.
Azure: "What is this place?"
Metal Man (GM): You finally reach a central room.
Mr. Saturn: "The temple of the creators. It contains our rare and powerful curation device. It also contains the evil sealer... Which we shall use today."
King Demon: "Evil sealer!?" *Backs up a little.*
Azure: "I see."
Gibby: "Sounds... evil!"
Metal Man (GM): The Mr. Saturn looks up... pulling down a cover. A stone ring is there. It suddenly activates, a large, gray warp appearing.
Julian Sawyer: "..."
Mr. Saturn: "Throw the mage in there. Quickly!"
Aribar does so... He also casts Minor Healing on Orlando.
Mr. Saturn: "We have no time. Kuja may attempt to stop us."
Azure: "You heard the... man... umm... guy... umm..." .oO(What the heck are you anyway...)
Metal Man (GM): Orlando is healed, now barely conscious. But not really able to do anything.
Mr. Saturn: "Once he is in there, he shall be sent to his home world. It is not the best solution, but the X-zone failed long ago."
Julian Sawyer: *Kicks him in the ribs once for good measure before he's tossed.*
Aribar: "...He may be a traitorous mage, but he deserves some mercy... Do you know where he may land in Whaller... Our homeworld, that is."
Mr. Saturn: "He will be sent to where he belongs in that place. Like his home, his castle, whatever."
VG and Wolfman somehow end up following the other Questers to this temple... of Mr. Saturns?
Mr. Saturn: "It is to normalize the worlds. By sending him in there, we damage the evil forces which threaten this world."
Aribar: .oO(Right back into the den... No doubt he'll tell his superiors about Nintendus, but they won't be able to come here.)
Mr. Saturn: "He will remain a third in his home world... where he belongs. Now, hurry!"
Azure: "Hurry? What now?"
Mr. Saturn: "This gate and area is safe, but Kuja will stop at nothing to stop this if we do not hurry."
Julian Sawyer: "Throw him in!"
Mr. Saturn: "If he knows this exists, he will destroy our valley."
Aribar: "I did!"
Wolfman double-checks to see who needs to be thrown in...
Mr. Saturn: "...Eh. Sorry about that... I was too worried."
Wolfman: "I can understand."
Azure: "Oh... you scared me a little..."
Metal Man (GM): Energy can be felt from the vortex as Orlando is warped through it.
Wolfman: "What now?"
Julian Sawyer: "Atleast he's gone..."
Mr. Saturn: "Now... for Trance. It must be eliminated. The only way to do so involves an ancient magic..."
Metal Man (GM): Mr. Saturn says a secret language word thingy. A ring of Mr. Saturns surround the warp thing.
Azure: "Ancient magic?" *Now intrigued.*
VG: "...Trance? It's been too long since I remember that..."
Aribar hrms, listening...
Mr. Saturn: "To draw it out of your souls and send it back."
Julian Sawyer: "What the heck is a 'Trance'?"
VG recalls Alys... and maybe even Wolfman, performing it.
Mr. Saturn: "No one but Kuja will be able to use it again."
Metal Man (GM): Mr. Saturn says another word. An ancient chant can be heard.
Wolfman: "It's a strange supernatural ability that was only used in times of great need... at the cost of free will usually."
Metal Man (GM): Small, red orbs of energy fly from each Smasher build Quester, into the portal. They build up, coming through the walls and even the floor... and the ceiling!
VG feels like something from him is... lost... though it's not much.
Gibby: "Woah... crazy stuff."
Mr. Saturn: "Even the dead Questers will lose that ability."
Wolfman feels more of the loss than VG, however.
Metal Man (GM): It then builds up and fills the portal... which then closes.
