Super Smash Quest - Story - Chapter 171: Shadows and Spirits
Date: 3:41:15 PM, March 22nd, 2005.
King Demon: "Woah, that's weird..."
Metal Man (GM): The entire place rocks a bit, then settles.
Wolfman: "Just one question then Mr. Saturn."
Mr. Saturn: "It is done."
Julian Sawyer: "...That's it?"
Mr. Saturn: "Yes, Wolfman?"
Wolfman: "While I can live without Trancing... will there be some other supernatural ability for us?"
Azure: "Mr. Saturn? Do you have anyway of concealing yourselves now? I'm worried about your people's safety at the moment?"
Mr. Saturn: "We shall arrange that soon enough---"
Gibby: "Oh good."
Doopliss: "Stop right there, Questers."
Wolfman: "I prefer having some sort of backup ability should I get into trouble."
VG: "...you mean like now?"
King Demon: "I KNEW this was gonna get interesting eventually..."
Metal Man (GM): Doopliss appears at the back of the cave, this time, 100% healed.
Azure: "What do you want now..." *He doesn't even turn around to look.*
Gibby turns around.
Aribar: "Again, Doopliss?"
Aribar turns about, sighing.
Doopliss: "...I am much more than I was that other time."
Julian Sawyer: "This guy again?"
VG and the Wolf turn to him...
Doopliss: "This artifact... is great. I'm going to have to take it."
Julian Sawyer: *Does The Turn.*
Azure: "Mr. Saturn? Do you have a way of concealing yourself?"
Mr. Saturn: "I would never give such a thing to you!"
Aribar takes out the Wonder Wand...
Mr. Saturn: "It is too late. You must deal with him."
VG: "Why can't you just go work at a dojo or something?"
Aribar: "...Do you want to start a duel, Doopliss?"
Julian Sawyer: "So we gotta kill this guy?"
Doopliss: (Three Voices) "I am Doopliss, and I must finish what I started."
Azure: "Just beat him down real well again. But that wasn't normal......"
Doopliss: (Three Voices) "The time has come for you to die!"
King Demon: "Good, lets play!"
Doopliss: (Three Voices) "PREPARE FOR YOUR DESTRUCTION!!!!"
Wolfman can't tell if he hears three voices or one.
Metal Man (GM): Doopliss vs. The Questers
Aribar: .oO(... Something is most definitely different...)
Metal Man (GM): http://www.vgmusic.com/new-files/Pm_ttyd_final_battle_pre.mid Doopliss morphs into Metal Sonic. His turn.
Julian Sawyer: "..."
VG forgot that he was a duplighost...
Aribar: "...Always one to rely on the powers of others, weakling?"
Doopliss: (Metal Sonic) "Face the wrath of Dr. Robotnik's technology!"
Julian Sawyer: "I'm gonna have a lot of questions for you guys when this is over..."
Metal Man (GM): He goes up into the air, and flies at everybody, trying to tackle the entire crowd.
King Demon: "Uh, I don't think this is a good thing!"
Metal Man (GM): 10 damage per hit. That effects everybody.
VG attempts to duck.
Aribar is tackled, but does not cry out.
King Demon is hit apparently.
Azure: *Puts up a quick X arm guard taking the blows.*
Gibby gets hit all three times, and falls on his face.
VG only gets knocked once; the Wolf gets thrice.
Doopliss: (Metal Sonic) "You dare doubt my power, Jentanian Wizard?"
Gibby: "OW! That actually hurt!"
Aribar: "Most definitely! Magic shall always beat technology!"
Metal Man (GM): He tries to fire a lightning bolt at Aribar.
Azure: "That voice...."
Metal Man (GM): Opposed INT checks!
Aribar accepts the bolt.
Julian Sawyer: *Gets knocked over, but quickly leaps to he feet, apparently drawing something from his belt.*
Aribar just lets the bolt hit him... He doesn't try resisting.
Gibby gets back up, and takes his gun out.
Metal Man (GM): 75% electric damage.
Aribar: "Tsk, tsk, tsk, Doopliss! Forgetting something, aren't we?"
Doopliss: (Metal Sonic) "So, you're still immune to electricity? A shame you aren't laser-proof as well."
Metal Man (GM): Two Speed checks for Aribar!
Aribar dives and rolls past the lasers.
Metal Man (GM): You get hit by a blue laser from Doopliss's chest, which deals 50% damage. Non-elemental.
Aribar: "Gah! ...You know, I once fought Metal Sonic... You're doomed!"
Doopliss: (Metal Sonic) "I am beyond his power, weakling."
Aribar: "You shall pay for your crimes against me!" *The elf begins charging up a pinpoint of light. It begins to expand and he fires a MASSIVE beam of electricity at Doopliss after charging it up twice.* "TERRORBOLT!"
Metal Man (GM): He merely laughs at you.
Doopliss: (Metal Sonic) "You lack the power to kill me with that."
Aribar hrms... He tries to see if his foe was even damaged by that.
VG doesn't like this guy... he better get some Questers prepared. (continuing)
Metal Man (GM): He was damaged, but he's so tough, it appears like it barely scratched him.
VG first gives Aribar a Super Plush Bear.
Aribar gives a nod to VG as thanks, but keeps his eyes on Doopliss.
VG then gives Gibby an Energizer... he recalls he could do a lot of damage. *Done.*
Gibby flips his gun a couple times, cocks it, and fires at Doopliss/Metal Sonic three times.
Metal Man (GM): Okay... one, two, three hits.
Azure doesn't run but floats off at a high speed toward Doopliss. His arms swoosh open as he gets close then slam down once he's next to him then reaches out a bit at Doopliss trying to grab him.
Metal Man (GM): Hit.
Azure while holding Doopliss in his grasp says "We shouldn't fight in this place. We should take this fight outside. Our attacks could bring this ancient temple down. Are we in agreement?"
Doopliss: (Metal Sonic) "I wish to burn this forsaken valley to the ground, with you and this temple in it."
Aribar: "I think that's your answer..."
Julian Sawyer: "I don't think you're gonna convince him."
Azure: *Throws him up and then rams straight at him aimed toward the path that leads outside of the temple -Bozen smash.*
Wolfman (GM): Cornelius: *WARP* welcome to the battle.
Metal Man (GM): You hit yet again, but Doopliss stands his ground.
Azure: *15% stun.*
Cornelius pulls out his umbrella.
Azure: *Floats away.*
Gibby: "Hard to believe he got THAT powerful."
Metal Man (GM): He is immune to status effects in his current form.
Azure: "I should have just dragged him outside...."
Aribar turns so he can see both Cornelius and Doopliss. "Warping in help, Doopliss?"
Azure: "You guys do realize I was talking to you all!"
Doopliss: (Metal Sonic) "I do not need help, wizard."
King Demon turns to Azure "Sorry, you say something?"
VG: "Aribar, Cornelius is with us."
Julian Sawyer: *Runs towards Doopliss and leaps up, trying to grab his head on the way down and slam it into the hard temple floor- Face Wash.*
Gibby: "The more the merrier."
Cornelius: "Um... VG?"
Aribar: "...Good. We can use the help then." *The elf focuses back on Doopy.*
Metal Man (GM): He laughs as you run up to him, then blocks you with a single finger.
VG turns to Cornelius.
Cornelius gets his umbrella ready.
VG: "Don't take things the wrong way, but this is not the best time to talk. Now, try to attack that ghost."
Metal Man (GM): Oh. Then go ahead with turn two, Julian.
Julian Sawyer: *Failing this, Julian tries stabbing him in the head with a KNIFE that can't be seen.*
Metal Man (GM): Erm, action 2. Gibby suddenly begins eating a large cake.
Cornelius runs up and opens his umbrella, attempt to attack the Ghost.
Julian Sawyer: *Another failure, Julian retreats back to the line.*
Metal Man (GM): Wow. Good roll... but you just-barely miss Doopliss.
Wolfman notes the new guy had good aim... but why the miss? He gets out the Smash Dex to figure this out... scan in text mode.
Multiple forms detected. You will have to scan him seven more times.
Doopliss Bio: A duplighost with a party hat. This mysterious being has run afoul of Mario before, and then recently appeared at the ruins of Vaati's tower. He joined Magellean's forces, but then defected to Grunty's after an incident with being controlled by Bob, Lord of Electric Death. From there, he made himself comfortable, occasionally bothering Aribar and the Questers. He had a scrape with Lumis Dongthar, as well. This battle is what changed him. He unlocked holy magic powers which seemed impossible for his race. From there on, he developed his abilities into what they are today. He randomly switches between a variety of forms to keep opponents on their toes, and is always a tough combatant. He has recently enlisted the aid of Kuja and Gerald Robotnik; for what, however, is the question.
Special: +10 to attacks against those from Whaller, and against Mario.

Digifanatic catches a glance at Cornelius. "Ah, another new guy."
Metal Man (GM): As in, King Demon.
Cornelius looks over at Digifanatic, holding his Battle 'Brella as a sword.
King Demon tries to fireball Doopliss.
Metal Man (GM): He leaps above them both, the fireballs being too slow. Then he morphs again.
Digifanatic: "So, what brings you to this place of madness and combat?"
Metal Man (GM): He becomes Mario!
Wolfman: "Slag it!"
Doopliss: (Mario) "It's-a me, Doopliss! Prepare to be-a crushed!"
Cornelius: "I am a new Quester, I am here to try and get me a new module to leave... but still." *He looks at the stumpy little plumber.*
VG gets a little nervous.
Doopliss: "Take-a this, Aribar!"
Metal Man (GM): He runs up and smashes Aribar with his hammer. *SMASH* 84% damage.

Doopliss: (Mario) "Your-a turn, Wolf-a Man!"
VG gets a good look at Doopliss... how could he do that?
Metal Man (GM): Doopliss leaps high up into the air and comes crashing down towards Wolfman. *SPRING JUMP.*
Wolfman: "Oh brother..."
Cornelius: "Hmm, a shapeshifter... there is a lot of those in Greylok, VG."
Metal Man (GM): 210% damage if that hit. Hrm... I meant one action.
Wolfman: *BOOM Boom boom boom boom...*
Metal Man (GM): Aribar gets one less action from being revived, of course.
Aribar gets back up... He has one life left... "I'm not so easy to kill."
Doopliss: (Mario) "But I'm-a Mario! I-a kill every-a body!"
Aribar: "Die now! Electric Blast!" *The elf pelts Doopliss with two Electric Elemental Blasts for 70% Electric before downing a Green Potion.*
Doopliss: (Mario) *Uncharacteristically evil laugh.*
Aribar: "A blind Goomba could do a better impression, you old hack!"
VG doesn't like this... however, what else can this guy do? HE goes for scanning in text mode at least once.

VG better try to put this guy on ice right now... Ice Block throw!
Metal Man (GM): You hit him all right. Crit means double damage. Roll for the freeze. He takes 25 damage from that ice block.
Metal Man (GM): Gibby continues savoring cake. Just in time! Azure: Your turn.
Digifanatic then takes another glace around....oO(Another new guy... well then.)
Metal Man (GM): You see the artifact used to seal off Trance and Orlando, as well as Doopliss. You are the only people blocking his access to the artifact.
Azure equips his nexus gauntlets then rushes at Doopliss again his fists burst into electricity as he punches at Doopliss chest and then spins with and punches with a right "RAGEKI FISTS!"
Metal Man (GM): Hit. Barely, but also a hit.
Azure: *42% electric damage. Done.*
Julian Sawyer tries another Face Wash, then follows it up with the triple kicking Beatbox.
Metal Man (GM): BARELY miss. You barely avoid being counter-attacked.
Digifanatic takes a check out at Doopliss, thinks about what to do, and then tries a Fire Punch out at the ghost.
Metal Man (GM): You hit. Amazing. The evil plumber of doom +1 takes the hit.
Digifanatic: *X ACCURACY GONE He tries it again.*

Doopliss: "Well, it's time to get Black and White with you! Magical Healing!" *Regains 90% HP* "Magic Barrier! Black Curse!"
Metal Man (GM): Aribar: INT check. Well, that's high, but not high enough. The intense magical power surrounds you, preventing you from doing anything this round.
Doopliss: "And now... to finish you off, worthless Mushroom! HOLY BLAST!"
VG somehow doesn't get the harmful holiness. He throws a Debarrier cube at this barrier thing.
Metal Man (GM): The barrier barely deflects the cube, and it shatters.
VG tries that again... he wants that barrier destroyed.
Metal Man (GM): *SMASH* The barrier goes down.
Digifanatic: "There ya go!"
Doopliss: "I'll fry you for that, mushhead!"

Metal Man (GM): You do yer next attack while I get a soda.
Wolfman: *To Digi* "I agree... first Azure winning against VG... now this."
Digifanatic: "Azure... wasn't that Esprinto?"
Julian Sawyer: *Then tries to stab him with the jagged bottle end.*
Wolfman: *To Digi* "...you might be right."
Digifanatic: (mumbling)"Cause Azure lost his money he won... poor guy."
Metal Man (GM): Miss.
Digifanatic steps of the revival platform... *...and then uses a Super Mario Punch just to see what happens.*
Metal Man (GM): it. H I t . You do, indeed, get coins.

Digifanatic: "Well, that's the time to use a voice mode... this could get nuts."
Smash Dex: "End of information."
Wolfman: *Action 3 next sentence.*
Doopliss: "Of course I did. that way, I could destroy you all if you seemed to be winning."
Wolfman finally gets into an attacking mood... beam saber in hand, he starts dancing with the bum.
Metal Man (GM): All but 1 miss. New round! He morphs into Kuja.
Digifanatic: .oO(Oh hoooooooo...)
Doopliss: (Kuja) "Mwahahahaha! It is time to annihilate all of you!"
Wolfman gulps in fear.
Doopliss: (Kuja) "FLARE STAR!"
Digifanatic rolls his eyes widely and exhales quite deeply...
Julian Sawyer: "..."
Metal Man (GM): 100% non-elemental damage to everyone.

Aribar survives, but just barely. "You'll... Never win!"
Digifanatic: *LAST LUCKY He loses his second life!*
Wolfman and VG avoid it this time.

Metal Man (GM): VG: What's your maximum HP? He drains 24 HP from you.
VG: *SMB2 death.*
Doopliss: (Kuja) "Ha ha ha! Bow before my all mighty form!"
Aribar: "...Never!:." *He casts Electric Elemental Blast on Doopliss twice for 70% Electric each and then Mirror on himself...*
VG: *Action 1: being revived off of the platform Action 2: Cinnamon Goodness--I mean, Red Essence--to Wolfman. Done.*
Metal Man (GM): Gibby eats more cake!
Azure revives -loses 14 OP points and 1 life- *Does a rageki fists then jumps away.*
Doopliss: (Kuja) "ULTIMA!"
Metal Man (GM): Azure's HP is reduced to 1.
Julian Sawyer: *Revived.*
Digifanatic: .oO(Boy would I sure love it if VG Tranced next turn... but I probably won't make it...)
Metal Man (GM): You have one action, Julian.
Digifanatic: .oO(Oh yeah... DUH DIGI!!! Boy, have I lost it...)
Julian Sawyer: *Attacks with a Beatbox.*
Metal Man (GM): Hit hit and hit.
Digifanatic: "Yes Wolf, we were correct. He can definitely hit... It'll take some time to beef up, but he seems worthy."
Digifanatic comes off the revival platform again... He just wants to vent off a bit of anger; he Fire Punches Doopliss again.
Metal Man (GM): Hit.
Wolfman starts off with a regular jump attack against this bozo.
Doopliss: (Kuja) "No matter what you do, it will benefit me. Ironic."
Metal Man (GM): And the bozo avoids.
Digifanatic just turns off a bit and does the eye roll...
Metal Man (GM): And the bozo avoids. You have some bad luck today.
Wolfman goes for the Swords Dance instead.
Metal Man (GM): 0 hits.
Digifanatic grabs his hair with his hands.
Wolfman is VERY angry now... smash punch at -1 accuracy (PLEASE!!!) *BOOM.*
Metal Man (GM): You hit! Amazing. *SLAM.*
Doopliss: (Kuja) "Gah! Curse you!"
Metal Man (GM): He lost it from dying. New round! He morphs back to regular Doopliss.
VG sighs a relief.
Doopliss: "Magical Healing!"
Doopliss: "Magic Barrier! And... take this, you angry idiot! Black Curse!"
Metal Man (GM): Wolfman: INT check. Wolfman is surrounded by a black field.
Wolfman: .oO(Stupid intelligence chip...)
Doopliss: "Take this, Red Essence using Mush head Quester lover! HOLY BLAST!"
VG: "Can you say that in English?"
Metal Man (GM): Once again, VG is saved by his luck.
VG is too holy to get hurt by it.
Aribar drinks a Green Potion and fires two more Electric Elemental Blasts for 70% Electric each at Doopliss.
VG: "Umm... Aribar, I'm unsure that was a good idea..."
Metal Man (GM): Oops, right. The Magical barrier glows. 90% of that damage is absorbed. Erm... reflected... Aribar takes 90% damage! Non electric, either.
Aribar: *LAST LUCKY. He is dead.*
Metal Man (GM): Aribar is killed by his own attack.
Digifanatic: "Oh man..."
Doopliss: "And so, I have finally won!"
VG: "You haven't won yet!"
Doopliss: "All of you who wish to run out with your lives... do so!"
VG throws another debarrier cube.
Metal Man (GM): It doesn't matter; Ari broke the barrier anyway. The cube touching it merely makes it disappear entirely.
VG gives Digi some super sneakers then.
Digifanatic: "Thanks, man!"
VG: *Done* "We're not leaving Aribar behind!"
Azure: "This power isn't as strong as the trance I have read about but I hope its enough. HAAAAAAAA!" *Azure body is almost engulfed in an aura of blue energy. (Soul Burst) in this powered up form he rushes at Doopliss with a rageki fists attack a badge in his jacket glows as he prepares to strike (mega rush 109%)* "RAGEKI FISTS!"
Metal Man (GM): Miss hit.
Azure: *126 electric Done.*
Digifanatic takes a quick glance at Wolf's Dex to read Doopliss' current HP.
Julian Sawyer: *Tries stabbing him with the bottle twice.*
Metal Man (GM): Miss miss.
Digifanatic: "Guys, we're almost at halfway!"
Julian Sawyer: *Tosses the bottle over his shoulder.*
Digifanatic puts the +10 SPD boost to use. He gives Doopliss a Fire Punch...
Metal Man (GM): Hitzorz.
Digifanatic then uses a Thunderstorm.
Metal Man (GM): He takes the hit. He's still looking like a meanie. Now then... Digi fails his badly.
Doopliss: "That thunderstorm is pathetic. Try a HOLY BLAST!"
Digifanatic: (mumbling) "Oh man..."
Metal Man (GM): 50% damage, instant blindness... You're not stunned. New round! He morphs into Kuja again!
Julian Sawyer: "Dammit!"
Metal Man (GM): Digi gets his turn before Doopliss.
Digifanatic somehow gets two more actions...
Wolfman: .oO(If this keeps up, I'm going to call backup)
Digifanatic tries another Fire Punch...
Metal Man (GM): He just simply laughs and lets you have it with Drain. What's your maximum HP? He regains 22 HP... the same as you lose. Yes, you do, Digi.
Digifanatic uses his Super Plush Bear.
Metal Man (GM): Well, Doopliss (Kuja) gets ready to attack again...
???: "Stop right there."
VG turns to the voice.
Digifanatic: "Who is that?"
Metal Man (GM): It's... the battered form of Shadow the Hedgehog.
Azure in his battered state looks up and the form in front of him "Sonic....."
Wolfman: "...He's not Sonic."
Shadow the Hedgehog: "I am Shadow the Hedgehog. Ex-member of the Thirteen Gentlemen!"
Julian Sawyer: "Hey, it's a black version of that blue thing."
Doopliss: "...Kuja killed all of you! And you were sent far away!"
Shadow: *Cough* "I escaped... and just in time."
Digifanatic: "Ex-Thirteen Gentleman? I swear this is nuts now."
Metal Man (GM): Shadow walks towards Doopliss.
Wolfman: .oO(...he's against Kuja... but he's not Kuja... he better not be trying anything funny.)
Doopliss: (Kuja) "...Take this! And that! ULTIMA! FLARE STAR! DRAIN! ULTIMA! ULTIMA! FLARE STAR!"
Metal Man (GM): He yells those words repeatedly.
Azure: .oO(So there's another hedgehog... shadow...)
Metal Man (GM): Shadow puts up his hands. *Shadow's theme.*
Shadow: "...Your reign of terror is over."
Metal Man (GM): Shadow is surrounded by four chaos emeralds. The energy misses as Shadow phases around it.
Digifanatic: *Digi can barely make out anything, but can barely see the Emeralds. * "The other four..."
Metal Man (GM): Doopliss suddenly looks worried.
Julian Sawyer: "I don't what's going on, but it looks like it's gonna be cool."
Azure: "He has 4 of the chaos emeralds."
VG: .oO(The chaos emeralds?)
Wolfman: .oO(He had them?)
Doopliss: "Arrrrrg! You must die!"
Julian Sawyer: "Chaos what?"
Doopliss: (Seven voices) "Holy Hammer Moon Potion Star Ray Star!"
Metal Man (GM): An almighty attack, composed of all four of his forms, flies at Shadow.
Shadow: "CHAOS CONTROL!"
Metal Man (GM): The attack suddenly stops mid-air, hitting Doopliss.
Azure: "Time... control......."
Metal Man (GM): Doopliss is thrown backwards, above the Questers. Shadow calmly walks right by the Questers.
Wolfman gets a look at Shadow.
Digifanatic: (to Veeg) "Well, I dunno much about this Shadow, but he seems to know something."
Wolfman: "Thank you."
Shadow: "This is it! Time to take you down!"
Julian Sawyer: "Thanks for saving our hides."
Wolfman notes that Shadow doesn't seem to care...
Shadow: "CHAOS RUSH!"
Metal Man (GM): Shadow suddenly blurs. Repeatedly.
VG notes that Shadow is trying to brutally kill him... should he let him?
Metal Man (GM): Doopliss is pummeled 1839642101470601 times as Shadow appears to defy physics.
Doopliss: "...U... gh..."
Digifanatic: "Oh my..."
Metal Man (GM): Doopliss stands up for a moment, and then falls down. Shadow then turns to the Questers.
Shadow: "I... escaped from Kuja. I came here to warn you... Kuja must be... destroyed."
Digifanatic: "Well... I couldn't make out much, but Shadow, you seem to be strong."
Azure: "Well that's the end of that. That was a impressive display of ...power... Shadow."
Metal Man (GM): Shadow collapses on one knee again.
Digifanatic: "Very strong. Thanks..."
Shadow: "I am trying to keep the emeralds from him."
Wolfman: "...don't take it the wrong way, but it's right now very difficult for us to actually destroy Kuja. Do you have any advice for us on how to do that?"
Shadow: "I can fix your problem with the lack of a special ability for Smashers. ...But we must flee. Sonic is already busy fighting off hordes of robots in the background."
Grodus bots: "Destroy... Destroy..."
Digifanatic: "Ah, you know Sonic."
Metal Man (GM): *Explosions.*
Sonic: "You better run, guys! They're going to get through any minute now!"
Julian Sawyer: "...Right. Let's flee."
Shadow: "We must hurry. They're after us. Doopliss may not have even died from that."
Digifanatic tries his best (despite blinded) to run back.
Shadow: "I can't kill all of them."
Digifanatic: "Someone grab me! I'm still kinda blind here! And who gets Ari?"
Metal Man (GM): Shadow begins running, as well... he picks up the entire holy ring from the temple.
Shadow: "This artifact... Kuja wants it. We must take it! This way!"
Julian Sawyer: "I'll get him."
Azure: *Floats following behind Shadow.*
Wolfman and company follow.
Julian Sawyer: *Picks up Aribar's Body, slings it over his shoulder, and follows after Shadow.*
Digifanatic: "Can't forget him."
Wolfman at least still has some essence protection.
Metal Man (GM): *Battle over, Wah!* 1300 EXP for all who are here right now. Aribar got another 600 EXP.
Azure: *The bright glowing energy around Azure fades away.*
Metal Man (GM): Aribar is, indeed, alive, in that fashion. As you run, you hear several explosions behind you. Grodus robots... everywhere.
Digifanatic: "Hey... I'm not blind..."
Metal Man (GM): Gerald Robotnik leading them.
Julian Sawyer: *Picks up the pace.*
Azure *Floating in the air* "Might wanna speed it up...."
Metal Man (GM): An entire army, chasing you through the temple.
Gerald Robotnik: "Stop right now, worthless flesh beings!"
Digifanatic keeps running, not needing anyone to help him..."Oh no..."
Julian Sawyer: "That's not an option!"
Shadow: "You've betrayed Maria, you fool! She wished for peace, not destruction!"
Gerald Robotnik: "Maria is dead. Kuja is not. I shall get my revenge!"
Shadow: "...Then we have no choice but to fight you until every last bit of you is dead! We have only one escape method left. We have to--"
Wolfman: .oO(Maria? Must have been either a girlfriend, sister, mother, or good friend)
Azure: floating next to Shadow .oO(Maria?...)
Metal Man (GM): *BASH.*
Dr. Robotnik: "Hahahaha! I've got you now!"
Digifanatic: .oO(Hmm... find out who she is--aww man.)
Metal Man (GM): Dr. Robotnik, in a mecha, flies through a wall... leaving the perfect escape.
VG: .oO(Wait... which Dr. Robotnik is that?)
Wolfman: *To Shadow* "Will that count?"
Azure: *Looks at Shadow then points at the wall.*
Shadow: "...Forget the treacherous way. Let's just run through this hole!"
Julian Sawyer: "...Thank you Lady Luck!" *ESCAPE!*
Gerald Robotnik: "Get out of the way, you bumbling idiot!"
Azure: *Flies toward and hopefully through it.*
Wolfman and VG follow.
Dr. Robotnik: "What? Imposter! I'm the only Dr. Robotnik!"
Digifanatic follows Julian and company.
Metal Man (GM): You hear even more shooting behind you as Dr. Robotnik attacks Gerald.
Digifanatic looks back... "That'll be fun..."
Metal Man (GM): Anyway, you guys see that Saturn Valley has been engulfed in flames... you're outside the Death Mountain caves, now.
Wolfman (GM): Cornelius: You are right now with the others, escaping through a hole in the wall made by Dr. Robotnik... who is right now facing Gerald. Long story; I don't know all of it.
Azure clenches his fist "Its not fair... they where only trying to help us...."
Shadow: "Now... we must get our of here. We cannot warp. Gerald has his warp-blocker online."
Cornelius: "Then let's take it down."
Digifanatic: "I might be able to."
Metal Man (GM): Shadow points to Dr. Robotnik's ship, nearby.
Shadow: "His warp-blocker is hundreds of miles away. That ship is only 100 feet away."
VG sees where Shadow is pointing. "I like your style."
Digifanatic: "Never mind..."
Julian Sawyer: "So let's steal it."
VG starts going to the ship.
Wolfman: .oO(That mushroom... he sure loves being in vehicles.)
Cornelius: "Well, how can we get up there? All I have is a Battle 'Brella"
Digifanatic looks at the two newer Questers, reminding himself to have to introduce himself when returning to HQ...
Wolfman follows him.
Julian Sawyer: *Heads for the ship.*
Metal Man (GM): Shadow keeps up. You see the cave openings collapse in the mountains.
VG: "Cornelius, come on!"
Digifanatic follows the others.
Shadow: "Good thing that it landed."
Julian Sawyer: "No kiddin'." *Is still carrying Aribar.*
Cornelius runs weird, his feet look like the roll, kinda like a wheel.
Metal Man (GM): Shadow gets aboard... the ship is simple. It's got two flat sides, and two rounded ends.
Azure: *Trails still next to shadow as they he flies down the path.*
Metal Man (GM): Shadow begins activating the controls.
VG gets to the "shotgun" position.
Shadow: "Hang on. We're going to be in for a terrible ride."
Wolfman gets to a weapons station if there is one.
Cornelius: "Um... Mister dark pointy thing sir, mind if I take the Radar on the ship?"
Julian Sawyer: *Sets up the KO'd Ari in a seat and buckles him in.*
VG: "Got any restraints on this ship then?"
Shadow: "I'll handle the controls... you keep the enemies at bay."
Julian Sawyer: "From where?"
Cornelius: "OOH TURRET! I am good at turret!"
Shadow: "...This ship is not armed... so that means fighting enemies as they leap aboard."
Metal Man (GM): The ship lights off, and takes off.
Cornelius: "Well, no problem, lets go."
Julian Sawyer: "Easily handled."
Cornelius: "We can do it, right VG?"
Wolfman is already at this "enemy handling" position.
Cornelius draws his 'Brella.
Metal Man (GM): The comms become flooded with pictures of Gerald Robotnik.
VG: "Just get ready for anything."
Gerald Robotnik: "You cannot escape my wrath, mortals!"
VG joins Wolfman at the "enemy handling" position.
Gerald Robotnik: "All---"
Cornelius joins Wolfman and VG.
Metal Man (GM): It suddenly cuts out as a gigantic ship appears from Death Mountain.
Julian Sawyer: *Enters THE COMBAT ZONE.*
Azure: "Mortals?" .oO(I thought Gerald, though odd in shape, was human...)
Zio: "Your turn is over, pathetic technological idiot. And your two mangy mage friends. Face the power of the Destructor!"
Julian Sawyer: "..."
Cornelius: "Oh jeez."
Shadow: "...We're in big trouble."
Cornelius: "I-I-I am scared." *He clings onto VG's leg.*
Metal Man (GM): Missiles, lasers, and the like begin flying everywhere.
Julian Sawyer: "Go faster!"
Metal Man (GM): The ship begins rocking.
Julian Sawyer: *Grabs onto a pole or something.*
Shadow: "I'm going as fast as possible! That huge ship has some sort of hyper-drive..."
Wolfman grabs on to something.
Metal Man (GM): Death Mountain is blasted by a hail of gunfire. The sound of automatic turbolasers is heard as the cliffs are set ablaze. Then it gets much closer, as the ship begins to rock.
VG hangs on.
Azure: "These are some interesting advanced airships... but its getting really close..."
Julian Sawyer: "Holy crap!"
Cornelius clings tightly to Wolfman.
Shadow: "Incoming bogeys! Prepare for defense!"
Wolfman looks to Cornelius.
Shadow: "The ship is taking heavy damage... even Kuja's robotic army was destroyed by that sneak attack..."
Wolfman: "No offense, but if I have to fight, I can't have you dragging my leg down."
Cornelius: "I-I-I am scared!"
Shadow: "And if an entire mountain is on fire... I'd hate to see what happens when it gets us."
Wolfman: "This is the time where you have to hide some of that scary feeling and just fight it out."
Cornelius lets go.
Azure: *Puts his palms together and slowly splits them apart a flow of fire flowing from his left arm to his right.*
VG: "Let's not think about that then."
Julian Sawyer: "So go faster!"
Cornelius: "Hmm, I have to think, those ships could be my sworn enemies, and I am defending my planet."
Metal Man (GM): *SMASH.*
Shadow: "Intruders aboard!"
Julian Sawyer: "AUGH!"
Metal Man (GM): A door explodes open, and three space pirates appear.
VG: "This isn't the time to think!"
Cornelius pulls out his 'Brella.
Metal Man (GM): No init now; just attack!
Wolfman goes all swords dancing against these pirates... pirate #3 first.
Azure: *Rushes at them firing bursts of dragon fang attacks.*
Metal Man (GM): Hit.
Azure: *Aims at #3 and #2.*
Julian Sawyer: *Attacks with a Beatbox on Pirate 1*
VG charges up his DeathZooka.
Metal Man (GM): Julian hits twice... Azure gets a crit miss and then hits once. Three shots are fired at Azure in counter-attack; 10 damage each. The other two shoot at Wolfman. 10 damage each... 20 for that crit.
Cornelius opens his chest and fires his Rocket Net at one of the pirates.
Wolfman gets a little rocked (3 hit)
Metal Man (GM): One of the pirates is stunned!
Cornelius closes his chest, smiles.
Wolfman attempts to go all Mario like now... first, pirate 1 with the jumping of doom.
Metal Man (GM): Pirate 1 is stunned. Wolfman hits that pirate, knocking him off of the ship.
Wolfman quirks to pirate 2 now.
Metal Man (GM): Pirate 2 and 3 remain. Hit.
Cornelius opens his mouth and licks the next pirate, Pirate 2
Wolfman quirks to pirate 3
Metal Man (GM): Hit, Cornelius.
Julian Sawyer: *Seeing how Wolfman just attacked the pirate he was attacking, Julian leaps up and tries a Face Wash on Pirate 2*
Metal Man (GM): Wolfman, miss.
Azure: *Takes the attacks head on as he dashes mid air at #2 one with a impact bounder.*
Cornelius licks from 5 feet SLURP.
Metal Man (GM): Miss, Julian, hit, Azure. Pirate two flies off and dies.
VG fires his Deathzooka at pirate 3...guessing it charged only once here.
Metal Man (GM): Pirate three fires at Julian. 10 damage each... as it dodges VG's attack.
Azure: "Rushes at number 3 with a Bozen smash" *Action 2.*
Cornelius hides under his umbrella, and them appears in front of Pirate 3 with "Honey, I'm Home!"
Julian Sawyer: *Blasted back by all 3*
Metal Man (GM): Azure barely misses, while Corn finishes off that pirate.
Cornelius opens a door on Pirate 3
Metal Man (GM): All three pirates are dead now.
Julian Sawyer: *Gets up and gets back in position.*
Cornelius hops out of the door and runs back to VG.
Zio: "Surrender immediately! You have no chance of surviving!"
Julian Sawyer: "I beg to differ!"
Metal Man (GM): *BAM* A HUGE laser impacts the ship, setting stuff on fire.
Julian Sawyer: "Jebus!"
Wolfman: "Slag it!"
Shadow: "Somebody put out those fires."
VG: "I only have one ice block left!"
Julian Sawyer: *Looks for a fire extinguisher.*
Metal Man (GM): Person who puts out fires: d20+SPD check. Repairman does add to it, as well.
Cornelius: "Hand that thing here."
Shadow: "The controls? Good idea. I'll put out the fires."
VG takes off his hat, and attempts to "fan out" a section with his hat.
Metal Man (GM): Shadow gives Cornelius the controls, then rushes to put out the fires.
Cornelius: "You want me to drive this thing?"
Metal Man (GM): ...He only puts out a few; VG can help.
Shadow: "Just keep it from crashing!"
Cornelius: "NO PROBLEM!"
Julian Sawyer: *Uses his Fedora to fan out fires.*
Metal Man (GM): The two barely put out the fires.
Cornelius hops onto the controls.
Julian Sawyer: *Or not.*
Wolfman goes to help Cornelius at the driving section.
Metal Man (GM): ...*SMASH* A Space Pirate ship rams into the back of the ship.
Azure: .oO(Will my wing kicks... help take out the fire... or make it worse...) *just stands guard waiting if anyone else enters.*
Julian Sawyer: *Keeps his hat off anyway, so he can throw it.*
Metal Man (GM): More random madness for everybody! Except Cornelius and Shadow, who are trying to keep the ship going.
Cornelius: "Thanx, ya know, I am counted as one of the better Greylokian Air Force Cadets." *He looks at Wolfman.*
Editor's Note: Didn't he say he was a ship destroyingly bad pilot previously?
Metal Man (GM): The ship fires several lasers at Azure. 25% per hit.
Wolfman: "Just keep this thing steady..."
Cornelius: "No problem."
Metal Man (GM): The others not busy with various jobs may fight the machine as much as they want, like the previous battle.
Cornelius keeps going.
Metal Man (GM): Only one target, now.
VG attempts to put a Super Plush Bear at the "entrance" to act as sort of a buffer between us and the Questers.
Azure falls to the ground for a moment.
Julian Sawyer: *Attempts to hit it with a bottle.*
Metal Man (GM): Luckily, the 'thing' is stationary... so you hit.
Julian Sawyer: *SHATTER!*
VG goes back to DeathZooka charging.
Metal Man (GM): The ship opens fire on Julian with missiles.
Cornelius: "If only I am allowed to do my performance flying, I could avoid some of these things."
Editor's Note: Didn't he say he couldn't fly ships without crashing them? Error: Logic not found.
Julian Sawyer: *Luckily dodges one.*
Metal Man (GM): 15% per hit... you get a counter-attack on that thing!
Azure rises again.
Wolfman: "I'm unsure if that would be a good idea... the rest of us could easily fall out unless you are good at stunt flying."
Shadow: "Just keep it steady. We're almost there... if anything comes at us, dodge it."
Julian Sawyer: *Beatboxin' action!*
Azure: "Stupid advanced technology..." >_<
Metal Man (GM): Hit hit hit!
Cornelius: "No problem!"
Wolfman: "Shadow, watch over Cornelius."
Metal Man (GM): VG: Level 2 charge obtained.
Wolfman turns to the battle scene.
Shadow: "I am."
VG charges again... he wants to at least build up to level 3, if not 4 (I have four levels on this thing, with one of them being the base)
Shadow: "It's a good thing you're here... this pathetic heap of scrap is falling apart from all these turbolasers!"
Wolfman fires his Howl Buster at the enemy.
Cornelius: "Yeah, you should see my ship... maybe you can fix it up."
Metal Man (GM): All hit.
VG is almost at the next level of charge...
Julian Sawyer: *Then attacks with a Breakdance Sweep, ala Mario, and then with a backspringing kick.*
Metal Man (GM): The ship charges up and shoots a cone of flame at Wolfman. Wolfman: SPD save.
Julian Sawyer: *Luckies the 5*
Wolfman gets flamed.
Metal Man (GM): Wolfman becomes a torch as he takes 50% fire damage. And Julian hits it twice.
Wolfman: *Badges activate.*
Metal Man (GM): VG: You hit level 3 now.
Julian Sawyer: *Then starts stabbing the machine with the bottle-end.*
VG: .oO(hmm... one more, or not?)
Metal Man (GM): Hit.
VG: .oO(I better charge it.)
Julian Sawyer: *Stabs it twice more, wearing down the bottle.*
Shadow: "It's time to make the final approach for landing!"
Metal Man (GM): Hit hit.
Wolfman goes for more Howl Buster shooting against the ship.
Metal Man (GM): Cornelius: Roll d20+SPD mod + 5 for landing attempt.
Julian Sawyer: *Decides to just throw the rest of it at the ship.*
VG really wants to fire his DeathZooka at max charge at least once...
Metal Man (GM): VG: You get it at max charge, as Julian barely hits, and Cornelius sets the ship up for a good landing.
Azure: "Attacks with a rageki fist combo following up on Julian's attack" *Using both actions.*
VG: "BANZAI!!!!" *Fires it.*
Metal Man (GM): *SMASH* VG hits.
Julian Sawyer: *Hits it with a Beatbox once more for good measure.*
Azure: *Pulls back as he sees the cannon like device fire*
Julian Sawyer: *After the Deathzooka.*
Metal Man (GM): The evil... and weird... Carousel action causes lots of damage to the Space Pirate ship. Hit hit hit.
VG feels good... he managed to get a use out of that.
Metal Man (GM): Julian: You can make a final Overdrive super attack or two to finish it off. It's nearly dead. Just need to give it some tonnage of damage to kick it off the back of the ship.
Julian Sawyer: *OVERDRIVE Launches a series of punches and kicks at it, finishing with a powerful haymaker.*
Metal Man (GM): All hit.
Julian Sawyer: *Above attack was Speedbag.*
Metal Man (GM): It is finished. It flies off and explodes. 500 EXP to Julian, 300 to the rest. The ship lands next to HQ as a barrier goes on. Ivan's equally large and friendly battleship appears and drives Zio's away.
Zio: "I'll get you sooner or later, Questers!" *Short* *Cuts out.*
Cornelius lands softly.
Metal Man (GM): Mewtwo comes in.
Julian Sawyer falls backwards after landing that final hit, catching his breath.
Mewtwo: "Good work, Questers. You did your job..."
Wolfman: "Thank you."
Shadow: "...I shall rest now."
Metal Man (GM): Mewtwo heals Aribar et everyone else.
Cornelius: "Oh, and Shadow?"
Mewtwo: "You deserve the full 4000 coins for that."
Julian Sawyer: "Who're you?"
Metal Man (GM): Everyone gets 4000 coins.
Cornelius: "Shadow, do you have a spare 12 gauge molecular monkey snot generating pig ran hamster jumping triangular dervish module."
Shadow: "...No. I would have to buy one. I shall research it when I catch my breath."
Julian Sawyer: "And for that matter, where are we now?"
Cornelius: "Thank you Shadow."
Metal Man (GM): Aribar would probably wake up now.
VG looks out the window.
Mewtwo: "At the Stadium, of course!"
Azure: "That valley...."
Julian Sawyer: "And who're you?"
Aribar blinks, waking up... "Uhhh... Which place is this again?"
Mewtwo: "I am Mewtwo."
Julian Sawyer: "You in charge?"
Mewtwo: "This is the Stadium, Aribar."
Aribar: "Heaven? ... H---Oh."
Mewtwo: "Only second in command. Metal Man heads everything else."
Julian Sawyer: "Who is, then? ...Okay, I got alotta questions for him, then."
Metal Man (GM): A man wearing blue eyes, with blonde hair, blue robes, and a blue axe wanders aboard.
Aribar accepts his coins and stumbles out of the room. "... Gonna spent some money... Evil killer headache... Why do I always get one after dying?"
Metal Man: "Questions for me?"
Cornelius trots up to his room, winded.
Shadow: "Aribar... I shall talk to you later."
Aribar looks up.
Shadow: "You must kill Doopliss for us when the time is right."
Aribar: "Huh? About what? ...That seems a bit impossible..."
Shadow: "The only way to do so is to use a special technique on him..."
Julian Sawyer: *Gets up from the floor, and turns to face Metal.*
VG goes to R&R.
Julian Sawyer: "Are you in charge?"
Aribar: "...Special technique?"
Metal Man: "Yes. Have been for two years, yup!"
Shadow: "Chaos Control can combine all his forms together... while that makes him stronger, it also makes him mortal."
Julian Sawyer: "Good. I got a lot of questions about what I've seen."
Shadow: "Killing him in meld form, much like Metallix, is a permanent death for him."
Cornelius comes back down.
Azure: "Chaos Control, is that what it's called?"
Aribar: "...I see."
Azure: "Is there anyway for someone else to learn how to do that?"
Aribar: "You'll have to teach it to me later... As for now, I must resupply."
Shadow: "Only Aribar here can learn it. It takes a magical ability to do so."
Cornelius: "I could try it myself."
Aribar starts towards the shops after making sure Shadow has nothing else to say.
Metal Man (GM): Shadow nods and walks off himself.
Azure: "I see..." *He let's out a sigh of regret.*
Mewtwo: "It's a good thing you saved this relic from Kuja... even if Saturn Valley exploded."
Azure: "An interesting technique... I wish I could learn it." *He heads to the the shops to get new items and such.*
Metal Man (GM): Mewtwo floats off as well... the ship being looked over by miniature robots. I think I'll pause there... you may downtime for now, but I'll be busy.
Aribar heads to G&W's shop and browses the items... "Let's see... Two Green Potions (1200), eighteen of these Weapon Energy Capsules (3600), and a single Blue Potion."
Julian Sawyer: *Ok, so about 1 hour later, Julian's out of Metal's office, having all his questions answered and having been deem an official Quester, wandering around and exploring his new home.*
Cornelius knocks on Metal's door... "May I come in, I have some questions..."
Julian Sawyer: *And looking over his new Smash Dex.*
Metal Man (GM): The door is locked... Metal had to leave to get lunch somewhere outside the stadium, it appears.
Cornelius: "Oh well... I can ask later." *He walks around the main room.*
Metal Man (GM): *I am officially busy with retooling builds and adding in the Item Mancer build. 3333 coins refunded to VG.*
Wolfman goes to G&W's store. (no need to control G&W here) He buys FIVE HUNDRED rings He pays 4K instead of 5K here... thank goodness for Resourceful Quirk He then remembers his deal with Master Hand... he sends 1000 coins to him via instant wire transfer or something.
Cornelius walks into G&W.
Mr. Game and Watch: "Hello; you are the new guy, right?"
Cornelius: "Um, hello?" *Has difficulty looking over the counter* "Yes."
Mr. Game and Watch: "Welcome to my Stadium Emporium."
Cornelius: "Yes, thanx."
Mr. Game and Watch: "Is there anything you are interested in?"
Cornelius: "What are those?" *Points to the Shiny Rings.*
Mr. Game and Watch: "These rings come from the land of Saga, where millions are made every day, and thousands are shipped worldwide. There is a special magic within them... if you feel like you need another life, just grab hold of 100 of them and hold them over your head."
Cornelius: "Hmm, I think I'll buy 10 of them"
Mr. Game and Watch: "...just 10? But you can't get an emergency life with just TEN!"
Cornelius: "All I have is 6000."
Mr. Game and Watch: "...alright, if you just want to spend 100 coins for 10 rings, I'll get them for you. Is that what you want?" .oO(I'm just trying to help the new guy... sheesh.)
Cornelius: "Hmm, what about that?" *Points to the Froggy Drink.*
Mr. Game and Watch: "The Froggy Drink comes from Tadpole Pond. We have a special deal with Frogfucius to have some of his wares sent to us. Once you open the top, everyone will somehow end up getting a taste and feel slightly refreshed."
Cornelius: "I'll buy 2 of them, they sound useful" *He looks and is amazed.*
Mr. Game and Watch: "...you seem to want more things... I'll give you everything once you say you've had enough."
Cornelius: "A Greylokian Battle 'Brella! How did you get a hold of this?"
Mr. Game and Watch: "...you know, that's a good question, for I don't really know. It must be a recent shipment."
Cornelius: "Hmm, they must know I am here, heh."
Mr. Game and Watch: "...what do these umbrellas do anyway? You seem to know about them."
Cornelius: "Well, they can block ranged attacks, I have a normal Battle 'Brella" *He shows G&W his blue umbrella* "See."
Mr. Game and Watch gets a good look. "Wow..." *He is impressed.* "Want any of these Greylokian versions as well?"
Cornelius: "Hmm, lemme think on that, I might need a weapon upgrade if I am to be efficient in battle. As they say on Greylok: 'you can beat them down, but nothing works betetr than a blade in the face.'"
Editor's Note: Spelling is optional on Greylok.
Mr. Game and Watch: "Hmm... how would you want your weapon upgraded?"
Azure: *buys 3 sets of rings (2400), a blue potion (960), an IQ potion (7680),and some super sneakers (960) for a grand total of 12000. Leaven him with 21955 coins. He does this after the usual greeting of hellos and such.*
Wolfman (GM): Azure: normally I'd say wait in line, but I'm guessing you are in a rush. Deal completed, G&W rings his bell.
Cornelius: "Well, I want a blade to come out when I open the Battle 'Brella"
Azure: *takes the IQ capsule and uses it IQ +1^^ and then goes on his way *
Mr. Game and Watch takes the 1000 coins and gives Cornelius the 2 Froggie Drinks He then rings the bell again for a successful sale.
Cornelius: "I'll put Tough Skin on my Battle Brella"
Mr. Game and Watch: "I need to know what you want to be immune to. Once you choose something, it can't be changed."
Cornelius: "I know."
Mr. Game and Watch: "Do you know what effect you want to be immune to?"
Mr. Game and Watch: "I'll need 1000 more coins and your weapon to actually implement the effect."
Cornelius: "Hmm, ok." *He smiles, handing over his Brella and 1000 coins He also uses 800 coins for the Greylokian Battle 'Brella.*
Mr. Game and Watch puts the 1000 coins in the register, then puts the Umbrella in the Upgrade-a-Jigger. (don't ask about the name) He presses a few buttons...2 minutes later, out comes the Tough Skinned Battle 'Brella He takes 800 more coins and tosses in the Greylokian 'Brella as well. He again rings the bell.
Cornelius: "K, that's all, thank you."
Mr. Game and Watch: "Not a problem."
Azure: *Walks back into the shop once Mr. Game and Watch is done with Cornelius.*
Mr. Game and Watch: "Did you forget something Azure?"
Azure: "Yes. I'm trying to finish my the final touches on my weapons."
VG doesn't like being in limbo.
Azure: "I believe they can take 5 more changes and tune ups before I stop messing with them."
Cornelius walks out, and walks into the main room.
Mr. Game and Watch: "Well, how would you want to upgrade?"
Cornelius: "Oh well, off to my room." *He walks up to his room, and just naps.*
Azure: "Well I'm trying to add some abilities to augment my power in battle. I'm not sure but I believe I want to be able to add a summon modification to them. It feels like some work probably worth the work though."
Mr. Game and Watch: "Hmm... well, if you can tell me exactly what you want, I can get things set up for you."
Azure: "Summon modification which is going to take up two weapon modifications or so I understand it. As well as healing force. This will I believe will take up the remainder of my actual weapon space."
Cornelius walks to his room, and goes to sleep for the day.
