Super Smash Quest - Story - Chapter 210: Kuja's Weak Revenge
Date: 7:46:59 PM, June 12th; 12:00:00 AM, June 13th, 2005.
Garrick Fy`aar: "...or just touching it might work."
Metal Man: "...Well, that's easy."
Aribar: "...I think I either activated it or doomed us all."
Editor's Note: How about both?
Metal Man (GM): The seal floats up into the air, spinning.
Aribar steps back and looks to the seals in the air.
Metal Man (GM): The ancient pedestal that it was standing on floats up one foot off of the ground.
Metal Man: "...It's some sort of elevator." *He steps aboard the elevator, motioning for the others to follow.*
Garrick Fy`aar: "Out of the frying pan and into hell."
Aribar: "...Seems like the only way up I guess." *The elf hops up onto the elevator, following Metal.*
Garrick Fy`aar shrugs and walks forward.
Metal Man (GM): At the very top of the fortress, the skylight which let in the light that illuminated the statue widens to accommodate the wide platform. A pillar of light from above illuminates what appears to be a magical elevator shaft.
Aribar: "...Why do I have the feeling that Kuja actually isn't on top and we opened the way to the power for him?"
Metal Man (GM): The elevator begins to move upwards.
Garrick Fy`aar: "Because that's what always happens."
Metal Man (GM): The platform raises up into the air... floating out of the fortress.
Garrick Fy`aar: "...anyone afraid of heights?"
Metal Man (GM): The symbols float even further above that... towards an object in the sky.
Metal Man: "...Where are we going?"
Aribar: "A little... And I don't think it is anywhere on Nintendus."
Metal Man (GM): The object begins to become larger as you get closer. It's a blue city, high in the sky.
Garrick Fy`aar: "...Dex, can you get anything out of it?"
Smash Dex: "...Unknown artifact. Power appears to be building in it."
Aribar takes out Moonlight, his shortsword... The elf doesn't feel safe out here in the middle of the air.
Garrick Fy`aar: "Any life signs?"
Smash Dex: "...Unknown."
Metal Man (GM): Julian: You appear with the rest of the Questers.
Julian Sawyer: *And then Julian is spit out of a Generic Blue Warp Portal that appears on the floor of the elevator, landing on his back then getting up.* "...I don't know how that keeps happening..."
Garrick Fy`aar lets the high tech contact lenses drop their HUD readout. He frowns a bit as he watches. "...this does not bode well... we're going into extreme unknown territory..."
Metal Man: "It's a good question."
Aribar jumps back when he sees Julian, but manages to keep his balance. "Gah! Don't do that..."
Julian Sawyer: "Can't be as bad as the moon..."
Garrick Fy`aar: "True. Very true. ...but this IS Kuja we're talking about... let's hope to whoever is upstairs that we get to this power before he does."
Metal Man (GM): You can see the island now. It's that ancient Atlantean city. You can tell by the ancient blue buildings, and super-technological streamlining around the island. You're heading up through a single hole in the bottom of it... one that was recently made.
Garrick Fy`aar: "...this doesn't look right."
Julian Sawyer: "Looks like someone beat us here..."
Metal Man (GM): *WHOOSH* Before you know it, you're now inside an elevator shaft, going up. The walls are endless and blue, with a ring of lights for each level you pass.
Julian Sawyer: "..."
Aribar does a deep breath, wondering what they'll find.
Garrick Fy`aar: "I'd get ready for a fight if I were you guys..."
Julian Sawyer: "I'm always ready for a fight."
Metal Man (GM): There's a light above, you can see it now.
Garrick Fy`aar draws his guns, holding the heavy Einhammer in one hand the familiar weight of the M150 in the other.
Metal Man (GM): You reach your destination. A triangular room. There is a stain glass for each wall. On the green stained glass, lies the Solarian crest.
Aribar steps off the elevator and looks around at each wall, "Oohing" and "Aahing."
Julian Sawyer: *Unhooks the lightsaber he ganked from Gerald/The Void from his belt, but doesn't light it yet.*
Metal Man (GM): There, an image of machines, like Grodus and the Solarian Temple, as well as Sha'Fol, with his green sword pointing upwards.
Garrick Fy`aar moves off the elevator as well, his eyes scanning around the area...
Julian Sawyer: "It's either a church or a museum..." *Steps off the platform.*
Metal Man (GM): On the next stained glass is a blue image, of the Whallerian Crest. People leaving Earth on ships are shown, as well as magic and an image of Mars in the background. The last... red... blood red one... is of the Maricians. It shows an endless tide of machines destroying and taking over Earth.
Garrick Fy`aar scowls at that one...
Julian Sawyer: "Or a room that holds ultimate power..."
Aribar: "Hrm..." *The elf looks about the room, trying to find an exit.*
Metal Man (GM): There is no exit... ..But when you turn around again, you see Kuja, sitting at the middle of the altar. http://www.vgmusic.com/music/console/sony/ps1/Kuja%27s_Melody.mid
Julian Sawyer: "...Damn it."
Metal Man (GM): It's a sort of central part of the room; you can see that for sure.
Aribar: "'allo again..."
Julian Sawyer: "Well, at least I correctly guessed 'Church'..."
Kuja Tribal: "It has been so long since I last saw you, Questers."
Metal Man (GM): Kuja looks at you contemptuously.
Aribar drips with sarcasm. "What a shame."
Metal Man (GM): He glares at you with his eyes, silently judging you.
Garrick Fy`aar growled lowly, his grip tightening on his guns as he glares at Kuja with every last bit of contempt he has in him. And that's quite a lot.
Julian Sawyer: "We've apparently been sorely missed." *Puts his thumb over the activator for his saber, not turning it on yet...*
Kuja Tribal: "I must be blunt; you have, ironically, aided in your complete destruction."
Aribar: "...So we did open the way to you?"
Julian Sawyer: "As expected. I knew you were going to screw us over one way or the other."
Kuja Tribal: "Yes... pitiful creatures, unable to change your own destiny. It is with this power that I have complete control over your realm."
Julian Sawyer: "Blah blah blah..."
Editor's Note: I have to agree with Julian here.
Garrick Fy`aar: "We've changed our destiny a good few times, Kuja..." *He he spat the words, his eyes narrowing just a tad more.*
Kuja Tribal: "This time, you will not succeed. Behold... the power you have given me!"
Metal Man (GM): The room glows... energy concentrating in the center of the room. Three portals, made to show you Nintendus from a zoomed out view.
Aribar sheaths Moonlight and crooks his fingers into a spellcasting gesture... It seems obvious that it will come down to a fight.
Metal Man (GM): The portals show first... The Atlantean city. Energy from the temple below beams into it. The entire city powers up, despite having been dead for thousands of years, and only partially used recently. Ancient technology hums to life... and beams of white light fly in all directions.
Julian Sawyer: "..."
Metal Man (GM): To every edge of Nintendus, where each and every one of Nova's modules are.
Julian Sawyer: "This ain't good..."
Aribar: "How are you doing this? ... What are you doing?"
Metal Man (GM): The planet-controlling network is quickly taken over by the beams, as one of the portals show a status monitor, which quickly goes "MANUAL OVERRIDES ACTIVATED."
Julian Sawyer: "...Aw hell..."
Kuja Tribal: "It should be fairly obvious to you. After all... your ancestors helped CREATE this!"
Metal Man (GM): It is at this point that you see chaos breaking out all over the planet. Simultaneous lightning storms, volcanoes... floods... Matter showers... Quicksand, locusts, flaming hail... Every piece of civilization is being assaulted by a million plagues.
Aribar: "...Stop that! There is no reason for you to be doing this..."
Garrick Fy`aar: "...the Four Horsemen..."
Julian Sawyer: "We are so screwed..."
Kuja Tribal: "And now... for the final act."
Julian Sawyer: "...Why would you blow up a lifeless hunk of rock?"
Metal Man (GM): A white light appears above Kuja. The alter is a triangle in itself, you can see. With pedestals at each corner, the same shape as the corners. Gold-plated, with diamonds studded on them. The white light engulfs Kuja. It's a triangular pillar which lights up the entire room. ...When it fades, Kuja is clearly... stronger, and has a look of supreme control on his face. His clothes are now all white, enlaid with elaborate gold and diamonds much like the altar.
Editor's Note: He later misplaced the clothes and seemingly failed to have the powers from this session in Season 6.
Julian Sawyer: "...So what, are you god now?"
Kuja Tribal: "I am... GOD OF NINTENDUS!"
Metal Man (GM): A thunderclap follows his words.
Garrick Fy`aar: "...not for long, slick."
Kuja Tribal: "It is at this point... that you no longer are useful to me. I shall destroy all civilization, and remake the world in my own image."
Julian Sawyer: "So what was the point of bringing us up here if you were going to kill us with a wave of your hand?"
Kuja Tribal: "You wouldn't want it any other way."
Aribar: "...Sadly, he's right I think."
Kuja Tribal: "It would be a shame to not show you... that you Questers, alone, have doomed Nintendus forever."
Julian Sawyer: "Touche."
Aribar: "If we doomed Nintendus, we shall fix it... Starting with killing a god."
Garrick Fy`aar: "Well, why are we standing around her chit-chatting, huh? Let's just get down to business."
Kuja Tribal: "Yes. You must all die!"
Metal Man (GM): *FINAL BATTLE* Theme Music: Dark Messenger (FFIX)
Julian Sawyer: "...Right, so... how do we plan on beating him?"
Metal Man (GM): Questers vs.....
KUJA, LORD AND MASTER OF NINTENDUS
Aribar: "...Very carefully, Julian." *The elf's arm blitzes with electricity as he prepares to sling some spells.*
Metal Man (GM): *WARP* As the battle is beginning... you see somebody appear. A red portal rips out of time and space, and... Charles L. Magellean is now in the battle.
Julian Sawyer: "..."
Metal Man (GM): ...Except he looks seriously angry.
Julian Sawyer: "...Hi Charles."
Aribar: "Locos?! What are you doing here?"
Charles Magellean has a red aura around him. He has a piercing look at Kuja... not talking at all.
Kuja Tribal: "And now... you all die."
Garrick Fy`aar: "Less catching up, more defeating the unbeatable god."
Kuja Tribal: "FIRAGA!."
Metal Man (GM): Aribar is hit by a pillar of flame for 300 fire damage.
Kuja Tribal: "BLIZZAGA!."
Metal Man (GM): A torrential blizzard NAILS Garrick for 300 water damage.
Kuja Tribal: "HOLY!"
Garrick Fy`aar: "Haa!"
Aribar is killed.
Julian Sawyer: *Braces for death.*
Metal Man (GM): A white magic spell just totally incinerates Metal.
Garrick Fy`aar is dead as well.
Kuja Tribal: "THUNDAGA!."
Aribar falls to the ground, unconscious from all of the magical energy.
Metal Man (GM): A ton of thunderbolts blow Julian to pieces for 300 electric damage.
Julian Sawyer: "ZARG!"
Kuja Tribal: "Your efforts are worthless. I will destroy you all."
Julian Sawyer spat out of a Generic Blue Warp Portal for action 1, reviving. Julian then does what the Quester at the top of the order is supposed to do: Dexes Super Kuja.
Kuja Tribal: "And yet you try anyway... it's always amusing."
Smash Dex: "...DING!"
Kuja, Lord and Master of Nintendus
Smash Dex: "More information available--requires more scanning."
Julian Sawyer: *Another Dex.*

Editor's Note: Eh, he's not so tough. I mean, Kales Brando could take him. Also foolish of him not to use Doomsday when he did canonically lose in the future...
Smash Dex: "There is... more information."
Julian Sawyer: *And I'm out of actions. Damn* "Someone else scan him. Get the rest."
Garrick Fy`aar can pick up the slack on scanning, thanks to his Mark 5 and it's free action scanning.
Smash Dex: "...Processing information..."

Julian Sawyer: "Hey, maybe he'll use Doomsday."
Garrick Fy`aar: "...this is gonna be a bit challanging..."
Metal Man: "...Even if it killed him, it'd kill everything."
Garrick Fy`aar: "...but... they key... is to think outside the box..." *He glances toward one of the small pyramids of gold and diamond making all that light. He uses an action to scan it.*
Julian Sawyer: "There isn't much room in or out of the box! The box in in a very small pocket dimension that's about 3 feet by 4 feet!"
Smash Dex: "...This is a holy monument constructed by the Atlanteans, hailing... ...A person who was prophesied to become God, by unlocking the holy magic here. It also appears to be Kuja's throne room, now that he has fulfilled that prophecy."
Garrick Fy`aar: "Yes yes yes, but anything about it that might help us defeat him? Weaken him? Something??"
Kuja Tribal: "Why would I fight in a room that would have things to defeat me with?"
Smash Dex: "...There isn't even anything to pick up and throw in this room."
Julian Sawyer: "Because you're a villain?"
Kuja Tribal: "You clearly aren't thinking... at the worst possible time. Just like the Questers did two years ago."
Garrick Fy`aar glances to Kuja, but guesses he gets nothing. So, I guess he'll start off with the fighting. He'll do the first damage to the sucker with a pair of insta hit shots from his Einhammer.
Metal Man (GM): Your attack hits him, but it's more like... a paper cut.
Kuja Tribal: "You call that an attack? I'm insulted."
Garrick Fy`aar: "This is no good. Every last attack of his can tear us like tissue paper. There's got to be a way we can take his power away."
Aribar wakes up, over the shock of all of that energy. The elf gets up and groans before looking at Kuja and wondering what on Whaller he can use use! An idea crosses the elf's head and his hand is coated with an icy mist as the elf cries, "Icy Barrier!" A shimmering barrier (Mirror spell) appears around Aribar and another one around Kuja, only this one freezes the deity for 105% Ice damage (Ice Elemental Blast).
Kuja Tribal: "Hmph. Your magic is weak... far weaker than I expected. No wonder the Whallerians were cowards."
Aribar: "...Never insult a Jentanian wizard, Kuja!"
Charles Magellean chants softly in Lunarian tongue; the words echoing in the ears of those who hear it, "Haun-azth, Enn-yaaah... Ken-ai, Unn-yaaah... Call-ath, Ren-taaah...." He lowers his head, extends his left arm with his palm facing down. The Red Chaos Emerald levitates just below his palm. The emerald spins, generating red energy; it flowing into Charles's body. He looks up to Kuja, raises both his arms... and instantaneously charges up a 10 foot in diameter Shadow Ball to deliver to the 'God of Nintendus'. He throws both of his arms down, launching the behemoth towards Kuja.
Metal Man (GM): *SMACK.*
Charles Magellean: *400 damage upon impact.*
Kuja Tribal: "...Impressive. You actually prepared for this fight. A shame you, too, will have to be thrown away."
Aribar looks to Charles and that attack... "... Good shot!"
Charles Magellean: "I thank my mentor for teaching me the fusion of power of the Seven Super Emeralds Transformation and your Trance."
Kuja Tribal: "Of course, you're short six emeralds..."
Charles Magellean chants more Lunarian, and transforms his arms into energy blades. He leans downward. He then leaps at Kuja performing the Double Edge Dance.
Metal Man (GM): You continue hitting. Kuja grimaces a bit from the hits.
Charles Magellean: *80, 120, 160, 200 damage respectively. He then returns to his classic auto miniguns. He chants with louder echoes, and the guns begin pulsating. They glow rainbow, and just as quickly as they changed color, he unloads 6 bullets towards this powerful being.*
Metal Man (GM): Kuja doesn't even try to move; the bullets move way too fast.
Charles Magellean: *90 damage per hit, sans the crit hit.*
Metal Man (GM): 630 damage.
Charles Magellean lowers his guns. He continues to remain silent... emotionless.
Metal Man: "Argh... that really stung! I'll... uhhh... ... ...attempt to harm you!" *He takes out his AK-47s, and opens fire on Kuja, starting with an ice barrage.*
Metal Man (GM): All hit. 100 damage from that.
Metal Man then attacks with more normal shots.
Metal Man (GM): Only one hit... they're dramatically slower when not iced. 10 damage.
Kuja Tribal: "Taste death again, mortals! FLARE STAR!"
Metal Man (GM): A blinding white blast of non-elemental energy hits everybody in the room, dealing 150 damage apiece to everybody. *Survives. A lot.*
Julian Sawyer: *Dead! 2/7*
Aribar is saved by his barrier.
Charles Magellean: "Beearuunn... swwarrmm..."
Garrick Fy`aar is alive... He is also rehealed to 0
Metal Man (GM): Oh, right... It reflects off of Aribar and hits Kuja back.
Kuja Tribal: "Your mirror is a nice touch, but I'm afraid it won't spare you for long."
Aribar: "I've a better trick to foil your spells."
Kuja Tribal: "CURAGA!"
Metal Man (GM): Kuja launches a Curaga attack at Aribar, which bounces off of Aribar and back at Kuja, who is healed 300.
Julian Sawyer: "...That was unnecessary."
Kuja Tribal: "Then this will be completely unneeded."
Charles Magellean cracks his neck.
Kuja Tribal: "DRAIN!"
Metal Man (GM): ...A vortex appears around Julian, giving Kuja 3/4 of his current HP.
Julian Sawyer: "..."
Metal Man (GM): Which winds up only giving him one HP.
Julian Sawyer: "Again, what was the point?"
Kuja Tribal: "Suspense."
Metal Man (GM): Just as he says that, Julian is nailed by a FIRAGA, taking 300 fire damage.
Julian Sawyer: "ARGH!" *3/7* "... So confusing..." *Charges Kuja in a futile attempt to land a hit with Vendetta ZOMG A HIT!*
Metal Man (GM): Yes, you barely hit, due to a crit. *1 hit for normal damage.*
Julian Sawyer: "...Booyah!" *90 damage!*
Kuja Tribal: "I'm afraid you'll be running out of luck VERY soon."
Julian Sawyer: "at least I got a hit in!"
Metal Man (GM): Anything else? Ok.
Charles Magellean hovers in mid-air, cross-legged.
Garrick Fy`aar presses a pair of buttons on his wrist bound Dex, infusing a Fury Materia and a Energizer into his suit. He finishes up by firing another insta-hit shot, dealing 80 damage.
Aribar decides that hiding behind a shield wouldn't be very honorable this battle. Aribar first gets out his Yellow Chaos Emerald before concentrating and causing crystals to appear and shimmer around his three teammates. As the elf's own magic barrier dissipates, Metal, Charles, and Garrick get their own Mirror barriers to repel spells. "By Whaller, you shall not harm my friends! ... Most of them at least!"
Julian Sawyer: "Hey!"
Aribar: "...Sorry! I can only cast so much magic."
Kuja Tribal: "...You are at least, intelligent. Dismantling this shall be... a worthy challenge."
Julian Sawyer: "...'salright... Not like I'm useful anyway."
Charles Magellean looks at Kuja with a squint. He knows that he doesn't have to do it...
Aribar: "If you want, you can always try and hit me, Kuja... I've no tricks to reflect back that magic now."
Charles Magellean powers himself up by thinking of Kuja's words... He enhances himself and chants. He flares more red than before, and propels with the strength of 5 Super Missile torpedoes at Kuja as he uses Ram.
Metal Man (GM): *SLAM* You hit Kuja like a ton of bricks. He's knocked backwards a bit.
Charles Magellean hovers a bit backward. He looks at Kuja with one eye closed.
Metal Man (GM): He walks back onto his platform.
Charles Magellean charges with red in his eyes. His iris swirls around as energy charges up. He fires an Eye Laser at Kuja.
Metal Man (GM): *BZZZAP.*
Charles Magellean: *100 damage and loses an action.*
Kuja Tribal: "...Impressive, again, but not powerful enough."
Metal Man (GM): Kuja does lose an action from that.
Charles Magellean finally charges Fire Breath and unleashes this move as well. *40 hp each.*
Metal Man (GM): All hit.
Metal Man attacks with the same strikes as before... he doesn't have many ideas.
Metal Man (GM): All hit... 100 damage. WONDER CRIT and another hit. 30 damage.
Julian Sawyer: "Garrick, think you can spot me a Fury Materia?"
Garrick Fy`aar: "No prob... if we live that long..."
Kuja Tribal: "And now... the fun begins."
Julian Sawyer: "..."
Charles Magellean widens his eyes.
Metal Man (GM): Kuja casts... reflect on himself.
Kuja Tribal: "Remember ping-pong?"
Aribar: "...You wouldn't."
Kuja Tribal: "Congratulations. You are now paddles. Except the ball is... destruction magic."
Garrick Fy`aar: "I'm curious how a powerful son of a gun like you would even bother to know what ping-pong is..."
Kuja Tribal: "FIRAGA! THUNDAGA! WATERAGA!"
Metal Man (GM): Three blasts, one at each person Aribar reflectored.
Aribar cringes as he hears those words... He hopes his magic lasts...
Julian Sawyer: "Holy crap!" *Dives for cover.*
Metal Man (GM): They bounce... *REFLECT.*
Aribar tries to leap in the way of the Thundaga...
Metal Man (GM): Aribar: SPD check. You're too slow... it bounces... then bounces off of Kuja. The reflects are unable to stop the super-powered magic. *CRASH* *EXPLODE.*
Julian Sawyer: *Tries to make sure he isn't hit by any one of those spells. Needs to take Elemental quirk sometime soon...*
Metal Man (GM): 1500 damage to Charles, Metal, and Garrick.
Charles Magellean is now damaged.
Garrick Fy`aar is... well, he doubts there is a word stronger than vaporized... or mutilated...
Kuja Tribal: "Foolish elf. Never mess with a God Wizard."
Aribar blinks, looking at the destruction he caused...
Julian Sawyer: "..." *Looks around, then gets up and dusts himself off* "'Least I didn't get hit that time... Now then..." *Charges Kuja and performs another futile attempt at slashing him 3 times with Vendetta.*
Metal Man (GM): You miss, of course. Anything else?
Garrick Fy`aar will spend his first turn firing his item injection system into Julian, feeding him a Fury Materia through the bloodstream. His second and third actions will be served as firing another double shot of insta-hit goodness, since that's all he can really do, for 160 damage.
Charles Magellean admits he himself is stumped. If only they could go backwards in time via a so--...he gets an idea.
Kuja Tribal: *Yawns.*
Charles Magellean: "...Faith..."
Aribar tries something... The elf activates Chaos Control, downs a Green Potion, and fires an Electrical Elemental Blast at Kuja... Technically he should automatically hit, but does it get through the Reflect?
Kuja Tribal: "That thing has no power here."
Aribar: "...What do you mean?"
Metal Man (GM): It does actually get through the reflect... because Kuja VOLUNTARILY took it down.
Kuja Tribal: "Fayth cannot control a land where I am God. I make it so. I don't leave loopholes in my plans, Mr. Magellean."
Julian Sawyer: "...Hey, does this place have a door or something? I might as well just leave."
Charles Magellean extends his arm with his palm facing down again for the Emerald to spin again.
Kuja Tribal: "...You are welcome to leap to your death."
Charles Magellean: "You may control the lands... but the hearts of the people. Is not yours." *He uses his turn to try to reach out to the people of Nintendus using his emeralds power to link his minds to the dexes and send out an entire esp message to unite their hearts in the Hymn of the Fayth.*
Garrick Fy`aar: * http://www.vgmusic.com/music/console/sony/ps2/HYMNFATH.mid. *
Metal Man (GM): Okay, now then... Your magical thingy glows. Kuja is surprised that it works at all.
Kuja Tribal: "You clearly have more will than I thought. However, you cannot defeat me that way."
Charles Magellean: "Ieyyyyuuuuiiiiii... Noboooomeeeenooooo... Renmiiirriiiii... Yoojuuuyooogooo... Haasaataakaanaaeeeeee... Kuuutaaammaaaeeeeeeee..."
Metal Man (GM): The glow thingy fills the room... and... All the Questers are put in trance/overdrive/whatever modes. They also gain an aura which... has an unknown purpose besides their super stuff.
Charles Magellean: *that or the Spira version... whichever.*
Julian Sawyer: *O-O-O-OVERDRIVE!* "Finally!"
Garrick Fy`aar: "Time we layered it on thick..."
Aribar remains the way he is, glowing with the energy from the Chaos Emerald.
Julian Sawyer: "You're going down, Kuja!"
Metal Man (GM): That takes up one of Charles's actions.
Kuja Tribal: "I am going nowhere, fool. Neither is your attempt to defeat me."
Garrick Fy`aar: "You sure do say the same things a lot. You'd think a god would have a bigger vocabulary..."
Kuja Tribal: "It's only in response to your hackneyed cliches."
Garrick Fy`aar: "Our hackneyed cliches seemed to have trounced all your allies several times over. You're all that's left."
Editor's Note: Actually most of Kuja's allies didn't even exist yet... so most of the people who were defeated were unrelated maniacs... because Season 4's plot is a mess.
Julian Sawyer: "Well excuse me for not being a wordsmith!"
Charles Magellean uses the emeralds power and/or his dex to connect to the Second Moon's F.A.Y.T.H. and the other inhabitants: "Now is time for the Faith."
Kuja Tribal: "Fools! All your actions, all the ground that you gained, ALL of it was according to my design!"
Aribar: "Your little puppets in this play decided that they don't like the puppetmaster anymore."
Kuja Tribal: "You've just made your LAST mistake, Mr. Magellean."
Metal Man (GM): A warp opens for the FAYTH energy to attack Kuja.... Kuja just turns to the warp and fires streamers of white light. A screen shows the second moon.
Julian Sawyer: "..."
Metal Man (GM): The great, brilliant blue beam coming out of it is suddenly sliced into pieces by the streamers.
Julian Sawyer: "...aw hell..."
Metal Man (GM): It then blows up the base on it for further effect. However, it does not do anything else.
Kuja Tribal: "It took all of your friend's energy just to save your moon. And now they are dead. Stop struggling and die already! I MADE you what you are through my machinations... Would I make something capable of defeating me? Ha! Idiots! Nothing, not even your pitiful Fayth can defeat me."
Metal Man: "I survived the first time... I'll survive again!" *He opens fire with yet more machinegun fire.*
Charles Magellean: "You had threaten my life and defiled the moon with your presence. You have me involved, Tribal. I will not stop until I have become sent to the Farplane."
Metal Man (GM): *ZOOM* 200 damage. *ZOOM* 200 more damage. Kuja is mildly irritated despite being hit in ways mortal to most normal people.
Kuja Tribal: "So shall you be sent!!" *TRANCE.*
Garrick Fy`aar: "...not good..."
Julian Sawyer: "...Well crap."
Nick Caligo (GM): Kuja's form glows bright white as lightning crackles all around him. Bright flashes and the sounds of shattering glass as the windows all around you burst apart fill your eyes and ears.
Metal Man: "Gahhhh!!!!"
Julian Sawyer: "Auugh!"
Charles Magellean uses the energy from the emerald to shield his eyes and ears.
Aribar cringes against the light and sound, but tries not to cry out.
Garrick Fy`aar throws his hands over his face to try and block the attack on his senses...
Nick Caligo (GM): With one last final flash and a sonic boom, everything clears and he is left there, kneeling in the center of the pedestal, a bright gold glow flowing all around him as his hair now floats weightlessly in the air... with the texture of feathers. His eyes shoot open... a bright red glow in his irises showing you his corrupt, evil soul through the veil of a god.
Metal Man: "...I think we have a rather... MONUMENTAL... problem... here."
Aribar opens his eyes and looks at this... This abomination. "... This is impossible..."
Julian Sawyer: "...We are SO screwed..."
Kuja Tribal: "NOTHING will stop me now..."
Nick Caligo (GM):His voice is twofold, possessed by some power... not so much an outward one, though, as one deep within his heart. It's clear that there is no higher power now than him, nobody pulling the strings.
Charles Magellean: "This is the Kuja Tribal that is to be remembered. This is the one we were meant to battle with. There can only be one outcome!"
Nick Caligo (GM): He stands slowly and narrows his eyes.
Aribar: "...Charles, you don't happen to know anything else about this thing, do you?"
Garrick Fy`aar: "Charles is right. It's time for some over the top ass kickin'."
Aribar: "...And why aren't the other gods trying to stop him?"
Editor's Note: Interesting. Aribar, one of the first to realize the fishy nature of nobody else coming to help. And thus, what would later be the Time Cop Plot.
Charles Magellean: "...They are being repelled."
Julian Sawyer: "Maybe he killed the other ones..."
Charles Magellean: "Repelled by the bylaws that the natural evolution of Nintendus must not be interfered with."
Metal Man: "But what does he have to do with it? He clearly didn't come from here..."
Julian Sawyer: "Didn't he come from another dimension or something?"
Charles Magellean: "It doesn't matter. Once he became a God, the others are not able to interfere with the natural order."
Metal Man: "...And here we are without any showstopping weapon or item like when The Void showed up."
Julian Sawyer: "So we're basically gonna die."
Garrick Fy`aar: "Oh, shut your trap, Julian."
Nick Caligo (GM): Kuja's feet leave the pedestal, his clothing now taking on the same weightlessness that his hair does.
Garrick Fy`aar: "We either kick his ass or die. If we die, we die knowing that we tried. I, for one, am not going to die without taking a chunk outta him."
Julian Sawyer: "Same here, I'm just staying that we are most likely going to die."
Metal Man: "We'll find some way around it... but what? I'm stumped."
Nick Caligo (GM): He throws his hand up and stares down his arm at you all with contempt in his heart. His bright red eyes flare and a streamer of white energy surges forth from it, wrapping itself around Charles's body several times before blasting itself into his chest.
Garrick Fy`aar: "No, you're Met--jeez!"
Nick Caligo (GM): Charles suffers 900 magical damage as the explosion vaults him into a wall.
Metal Man: "..."
Charles Magellean falls to the ground... he is struggling to just get on one knee.
Kuja Tribal: "... Time to die, everyone..."
Nick Caligo (GM): He points his finger to the sky, looking up to it... you can see that the room's ceiling goes up for... what must be miles. A pinpoint of white light forms at the tip of his finger...
Julian Sawyer: "..."
Metal Man backs away a bit nervously.
Nick Caligo (GM): And then a stream of energy vomits forth from it, as far up as you can see. "Ultima."
Aribar: "...This is bad!" *The elf braces for the worst.*
Julian Sawyer: "Aw man..."
Charles Magellean: .oO(He summons a cactuar of any kind... and I SWEAR I'---)
Nick Caligo (GM): There are a few moments of silence... it seems to last forever. And then, you hear the shimmering sound of the crystalline shards... before you feel the spears rocketing through your bodies, your ears filled with explosions.
Garrick Fy`aar screams out in agony, his body shaking with mind bending pain as he's ripped into by the magic...
Julian Sawyer: *OMFG.*
Metal Man merely stands there, taking the hits. He's been hit this way before...
Nick Caligo (GM): Kuja watches silently, almost emotionlessly as each of you is ripped apart by his most powerful spell.
Metal Man: .oO(*Complete lack of thought*)
Aribar cries out in pain, every second seeming like an hour of pain.
Nick Caligo (GM): All: OMGWTFBBQ x.x damage. And as suddenly as you felt it, you don't feel it... you aren't dead... but it stopped raining spears.
Julian Sawyer: "...damn..."
Nick Caligo (GM): All your transformations end as the power that once filled you leaks out of your battered forms.
Metal Man: "...Not... again..."
Nick Caligo (GM): You are each left at exactly...
Julian Sawyer: "...DAMNIT!"
Nick Caligo (GM): 1 x 10^-99 HP.
Garrick Fy`aar: "...good... god... this is... not... why I joined you guys..."
Aribar just lays there, wondering if his body is unable to feel the massive pain or if he's dead.
Julian Sawyer: "It's not like I had a choice, y'know?"
Aribar blinks, just now realizing that he's on the ground... "... How can one person... Possess such power?"
Garrick Fy`aar: "...not like we can do anything about it... I even lost the power build up from the previous shots to Overdrive..."
Metal Man: "He said... he was... a God..."
Nick Caligo (GM): Kuja seems to be getting sick of your talking... He walks over to Garrick and spreads his fingers, raising his arm slowly...
Charles Magellean is standing... bloodied.
Julian Sawyer: "I was just sitting on my couch one day, reading a magazine, and then this portal opens and I'm thrown here, and you guys are fighting some guy and I'm forced to join in... and it all ends here."
Nick Caligo (GM): Before Garrick feels, hears, and sees the lightning that's pumping him full of just a few gigawatts of electricity.
Garrick Fy`aar: "DAHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!"
Nick Caligo (GM): He lets up for a moment...
Garrick Fy`aar pants heavily, tears falling from his eyes from the pain... he's surprised he's even alive still...
Nick Caligo (GM): ... And then stomps on your back and begins to pump you with even more lightning, torturing and frying your insides.
Garrick Fy`aar screams even louder than last time, his body writhing about, arms and legs twitching hard in random directions.
Metal Man weakly points at Kuja.
Charles Magellean: "...The gods' power... if I can't... how will I stand up to ...to Zemus..."
Julian Sawyer: "...Y'know, if this is just going to turn into a torture session, I might as well kill myself. I got a KNIFE..."
Metal Man: "I'm not... dead. You... lose."
Nick Caligo (GM): His lips arch in a twisted smile... and he starts laughing... "Hahahahahaha... HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!! POWER!!" The electricity surges into Garrick and arches to each of the other Questers... even Aribar feels pain from -this- lightning. "POWER!! LIMITLESS POWER!!"
Aribar tries to get up, but only to get blasted back to the ground by Kuja.
Metal Man is hit some more, though he long was senseless, merely a target for pain.
Garrick Fy`aar: "MAKE IT STOP!!!! DEAR GOD IN HEAVEN, MAKE IT STOP!!!"
Julian Sawyer: "AUGH!!" .oO(Shouldn't have said anything! Why do I keep talking...)
Nick Caligo (GM): He finally lets up for the last time.
Kuja Tribal: "I've beaten you. ALL of you! Ha ha! The prophecy is fulfilled! My will... is STRONGER! Stronger than all of yours combined!"
Charles Magellean just become increasingly numb...
Kuja Tribal: "All that keeps you alive now is your unwillingness to die... ... Watch! See for yourself..."
Charles Magellean stands against extreme pain... just to stand. He holds his right arm that feels like it's been severed.
Nick Caligo (GM): From a pouch on his belt he produces a small box with a red button on it.
Julian Sawyer: "And that I know... that something... is gonna happen... and you're gonna fail..."
Kuja Tribal: "Hahahahaha... oh Lumiiis! Lumis Dongthar!"
Garrick Fy`aar lies there, smoking. He hasn't caught on fire... yet... he's just lying there, his body blistered and red, his hair would be burnt off it wasn't for the armor around him...
Aribar props himself up with his arm. "... Why summon that dark sorcerer?"
Kuja Tribal: "Come out and play!"
Metal Man (GM): The transformer does crack open. A portal lands in the middle of the room. *WARP* Lumis is summoned instantly.
Charles Magellean: "Lu--lumis..." *He collapses...*
Kuja Tribal: "Ha ha... COME ON!!" *Kuja's wild expression becomes even more crazed and feral as he seems to reach deeper into his powers.*
Julian Sawyer: "...This just keeps getting worse... and worse..."
Metal Man: "...I'm not sure... who to root for... Either one of them... would just want to destroy us... or at least harm Charles..."
Garrick Fy`aar: "...m... ma... make it... stop... Metal... Ari... make it stop..."
Kuja Tribal: "I, the God of Nintendus, challenge you!"
Lumis Dongthar is summoned. He has purple hair, a medieval armor class. He has pointed ears, pointed nose, dark eyes, and a luscious cape that seems to flow throughout the air.
Julian Sawyer: "...Oh come on..."
Lumis Dongthar: "...You again... You INSIST to bother me time and time again."
Julian Sawyer: "This is ridiculous..."
Aribar slowly begins to stand back up only to fall back down. The elf won't let it end like this... If only he could cast a healing spell, but the elf hasn't the strength to reach his divine magical powers.
Lumis Dongthar: "Then once and for all..."
Kuja Tribal: "Hahahahaha! Yes... you who once stopped me... now will be destroyed! I've waited a long time for this day, and it is the day of your destiny!"
Lumis Dongthar: "You continue to prattle on about plans to destroy this, rule that."
Metal Man (GM): Trance Kuja vs. Lumis Dongthar
Editor's Note: This gonna be good *Eats popcorn*
Lumis Dongthar covers himself in his cape. "Then I, Lumis Dongthar, Dark Sorcerer and Master Mimic... accept your challenge!" *He flicks out his cape.*
Nick Caligo (GM): Another white streamer of energy lances out from behind Kuja, splitting into four. They all swirl around and then pierce Lumis from all directions.
Garrick Fy`aar is slowly gaining back his sanity, he inches his head over toward Ari... "...A... A... Ari..."
Metal Man watches silently.
Nick Caligo (GM): 1800 damage.
Lumis Dongthar is pierced heavily. He waits for the lances to retract.
Aribar looks to Garrick weakly. "I think... We lost."
Garrick Fy`aar: "...n... nah... cem'er..." *He just barely motions for Ari to come toward him...*
Julian Sawyer: .oO(...I wish I had some raisins. That would be nice, to have some raisins before I died.)
Lumis Dongthar: "You really must do better than that."
Metal Man (GM): .oO(At least I'm getting a good show after being beaten up like that...)
Nick Caligo (GM): Kuja just continues with his mad grin.
Aribar attempts to crawl to Garrick... A one-armed, wounded and shredded elf, crawling and bleeding on the ground... Roadkill, anyone?
Lumis Dongthar merely mumbles some words and begins to glow greenish all around. Sparkles here and there, and they are gone. He is healed 100%. He passes his remaining action.
Garrick Fy`aar: "...m... my suit... may still... b... be working... h... hit the... bu... button... wit... with the... number...6...on it..."
Editor's Note: If only he had the cursed 4 button. Pressing it would, like, probably make Kuja cease to exist.
Kuja Tribal: "And so will you. HA!!" *More and more of those streamers pour out from behind him in a constant stream... how many of those can he loose at you!? There seem to be hundreds...*
Nick Caligo (GM): But in all actuality there's 16.
Lumis Dongthar: "Now please, we've done this before."
Julian Sawyer: .oO(Or a pillow. A pillow would be great right about now...)
Aribar: "...Can't I just... Go to sleep now?"
Nick Caligo (GM): 7200 damage as they bash into you from all sides.
Metal Man: "...I think it's... a bit too painful to do that."
Garrick Fy`aar: "...n... no!...Hit... number...6..."
Nick Caligo (GM): *ZAP!* Garrick gets idly shocked by a very small bolt of lightning. Sorry, just felt it was a nice touch. ^^
Editor's Note: Zap Garrick all you want, the number 6 is annoying ME too, and it's been ten years!
Metal Man (GM): Lumis: You discover that the attacks hit you, despite anything and everything you do to block them. It's like they're bewitched or something to defy your defenses.
Lumis Dongthar begins to transfer energy to his left index finger. He makes several gestures and literally blasts each of these streamers so they are completely nullified.
Garrick Fy`aar lets out a small yelp, his body pitching forward slightly before falling into another slump...
Metal Man (GM): The gestures... they stop working.
Lumis Dongthar begins to kneel to the ground.
Kuja Tribal: "Know who rules over you, fool!"
Julian Sawyer: .oO(I wonder if that lighting blast took out my hair... That would suck, it took over a month for it to grow back after Jessie polished it off...)
Garrick Fy`aar: "...I want it to end... Metal... make it end..."
Kuja Tribal: "Silence! I'll make it end very... very soon..."
Metal Man: "Do... I look... like... a bartender?"
Kuja Tribal: "Just watch, you pitiful insects!"
Lumis Dongthar makes several crackling noises into his body. He slowly reforms to his former posture, now slightly stronger. He creeks his neck. "You're beginning to bore me again, my dear fellow. Let's move on, shall we?"
Aribar sighs and tries to futilely remember his heal spell... The elf says the words of power to enact the spell, but he puts no energy behind those words, thus doing nothing.
Kuja Tribal: "Oh, my good friend Lumis... I agree... I've toyed for far too long."
Julian Sawyer: "...Does anyone have... some raisins?"
Metal Man manages to make a facepalm despite being near death.
Kuja Tribal: "Your move! Come, show me what power you think you have when I am God of this realm!"
Metal Man: "...Ow..."
Garrick Fy`aar: "...you shouldn't... move... Metal..."
Lumis Dongthar raises his arm high and begins to concentrate energy. He uses his own version of a large white streamer... which is actually purple. This splits into two energy lances, and tosses them at Kuja to impale him. 225 damage each.
Nick Caligo (GM): The streamers fly out towards Kuja... and then bend back... and strike you in the stomach.
Metal Man (GM): You can sense a twisted energy resonating from Kuja, bending and deflecting the energy before the attack can hit him. Then the same energy prevents you from blocking your own attack.
Lumis Dongthar reabsorbs the energy. It is, after all, his.
Nick Caligo (GM): Not anymore...
Metal Man (GM): *KERBLAMMO.*
Nick Caligo (GM): You feel the pain of your own dark powers amplified by tenfold. They flare violently and crush your insides.
Lumis Dongthar hasn't felt pain like this since the Elite Battle Nexus tournament.
Nick Caligo (GM): 4500 damage.
Metal Man: "...Clearly... Kuja... cannot lose... while being... a God." .oO(I will have to remember this, if I survive this, somehow.)
Kuja Tribal: "Enough of this! Time to finish you. HaaaaaaAAAAA!!" White streamers burst from all around him, splitting and twisting around, all of them jumping down beneath Lumis and then uppercutting him in the shins, thighs, and stomach, pushing him upward... it feels like thousands, and this time it is.
Julian Sawyer: *Winces.*
Metal Man: "Ow... my eyes..."
Nick Caligo (GM): They keep moving you through the air with seemingly telekinetic force, but all you feel, Lumis, is one giant bruise all over your body... followed by hundreds of broken bones.
Metal Man (GM): And one poke could probably finish you.
Nick Caligo (GM): They keep twisting and contorting you in the air. He makes you his plaything with these, almost as though he's seeing how long he can keep you up there and still living.
Metal Man (GM): You have enough energy to make a final action... let it be known this decides your true fate.
Nick Caligo (GM): You fall to the ground... *THUD!*
Metal Man (GM): One more attack would probably be more than you could take, even with your own vast powers.
Nick Caligo (GM): Lumis's form is, to say the least, pitiful now. His grand cape has been torn apart, his skin has been charred black, and his bones cracked in unnatural ways.
Lumis Dongthar cannot reform in time. Truly this is a god even more beyond the giraffe king of Algant V.
Editor's Note: There should just be like, the Naruto theme playing while these two characters ham it up. There is literally no tension, only over the top actions and dialog.
Kuja Tribal: "Oh, I love it!" *He throws his arms into the air.* "Revenge is so very sweet!"
Aribar looks up at Kuja with an expression as if he just woke up. "Keep it down... Dying over here."
Editor's Note: Also the decision to awkwardly have near-dead Questers watch this pointless battle. Totally ruins the drama.
Lumis Dongthar focuses his power to the special thing that's currently inside of his own body.
Kuja Tribal: "Holy!"
Nick Caligo (GM): Bright blue circles of energy surround Lumis as he's lifted off the floor again. A surge of white energy blasts his universe away. He is incinerated.
Kuja Tribal: "Ha ha ha ha ha! You see, my friends? Lumis, the unbeatable one, DESTROYED forever! Truly my will is the strongest in this world..."
Julian Sawyer: "Meh."
Nick Caligo (GM): "And yet YOUR forms stand up to my new powers now..."
Lumis Dongthar: *Kuja would feel someone tapping on his shoulder.*
Metal Man: "But... the prophecy... what about the prophecy? Are you sure... you read all of it?"
Nick Caligo (GM): Â¬Â¬
Julian Sawyer: "Prophecy?"
Lumis Dongthar: "...I must admit, you had me if not the for the Dark Emerald I was able to use."
Nick Caligo (GM): Kuja, as though responding to a knock-knock joke, incinerates Lumis with a 1 million, trillion damage Holy. Again. He has no sense of humor, clearly.
Lumis Dongthar: *Yep... gone.*
Julian Sawyer: "...Damn, that's cold..."
Kuja Tribal: "I can't beat you about the same way I did that fool... But now I am powerful enough to rewrite history."
Julian Sawyer: "So go ahead. Do it. Just stop drawing it out."
Metal Man: "...Can I get a new hat?"
Kuja Tribal: "And so I shall write you OUT OF IT!"
Aribar: "...Eventually you'll anger something... That you can't handle."
Metal Man is deluded by all the pain.
Julian Sawyer: "You keep talking but never do anything."
Editor's Note: That's it, that's the Comment Of The Session! Says it all!
Metal Man: "But... wait! We made you what you are!"
Nick Caligo (GM): In just a few moments he -does- do something.
Garrick Fy`aar: "Julian, why don't we NOT piss off the great tranced god of Nintendus, hmm?"
Metal Man: "...What am I saying... ...well,... I just need to hit myself in the head with a telephone a few times to say something coherent."
Julian Sawyer: "What? He's going to kill us anyway, I might as well get my shots in while I can."
Garrick Fy`aar: "He might decide to let us live and torture us till the end of time..."
Charles Magellean: "...Something... is still not right."
Julian Sawyer: "I'd rather take death."
Nick Caligo (GM): The walls crack all around you... and then crumble away.
Charles Magellean: "Ahh... there it is."
Metal Man: "...Man, these walls aren't made like they used to."
Nick Caligo (GM): You can see the sky all around you, thunder and lightning blasting through the clouds... And a large black hole sucking in the debris...
Metal Man: "...I don't like the look of that."
Julian Sawyer: *To Kuja* "AND YOU'RE UGLY, TOO!"
Nick Caligo (GM): You are soon lifted off your feet as the ground beneath you crumbles away and gets sucked into the hole. Along with yourselves...
Charles Magellean: .oO(Something still isn't right...)
Aribar: "S-stop this..." *The elf tries to yell it out, but can't...*
Garrick Fy`aar: "...hey... lookit... that cloud is shaped like a Jentanian wizard..."
Nick Caligo (GM): You're all hurled through the portal at tremendous speed. You cease to feel pain... or even... anything at all.
Aribar: .oO(So this must be what true death feels like?)
Metal Man: "I wi---" *Cut off mid-sentence.*
Julian Sawyer: "...Maybe there are Raisins on the other side..."
Nick Caligo (GM): Erased from history? No... Removed... exiled from it. That is what has happened to you. That is what becomes apparent when you all come to... Your bodies are in complete health. You feel like a million bucks. You awake, laying in the debris scattered through the forest.
Julian Sawyer: "..."
Metal Man: "...Where... the heck... are we?"
Aribar blinks, looking about.
Julian Sawyer: "A forest apparently..."
Nick Caligo (GM): Twin moons hang in the night sky, a blue one overlapping a red one...
Julian Sawyer: "This sure ain't Nintendus, though..."
Garrick Fy`aar: "...jeez..."
Aribar: "...Not sure... It kind of reminds me of a certain holy place on Whaller, though... Minus the extra moon."
Garrick Fy`aar slowly gets to his feet... "...Dex... Dex, you alive?"
Smash Dex: "...KZZZCHT."
Julian Sawyer: *Rolls onto his stomach and gets to his feet, dusting himself off.*
Metal Man (GM): It shoots sparks... it'll need repairing. Though the rest of your equipment is fine.
Garrick Fy`aar: "...no good. It's fried."
Metal Man (GM): ...And as you look to the moon.....
Julian Sawyer: "...And we're cut off from the Stadium. Perfect."
Charles Magellean: "The outcome was in his favor from the start... I was never meant to see my brethren."
Metal Man (GM): *THE END OF SEASON IV. Logo for SSQ: Season V appears.*
Nick Caligo (GM): This is your home now... wherever you are. -end-
Metal Man (GM): And then... we end here... one last thing, of course. No new character needed. However... I'll load up SSQ V 2.
Julian Sawyer: *Checks his pocket, checking to see if he has everything, but he feels a little cardboard box...* "Hey! Raisins!"
Editor's Note: Wow... just, wow. That could have been, like, half as long, and had twice the impact. And probably had him, like, kill Lumis in one hit? That would have helped. Just... geez. That was weak.
