Super Smash Quest - Story - Chapter 222: Many Melee Matches
Date: 3:17:52 PM, July 15th; 1:21:05 PM, July 16th, 2005.
Editor's Note: This is the last time you ever have to see this annoyingly badly played Rune Walsh. Kerian was later kicked out for how horribly he played him in a (deleted, not-logged) scene. This is also why this begins with a bunch of arena matches--the deleted session with Rune Walsh being terrible would have begun shortly after this match, normally.
Aetos disdainfully walks into the arena grounds.
Rune steps into the arena, the Psycho Wand clenched in one hand. "...? Don't think I know you."
Aetos: "Good. I Want me SHIneYs!"
Rune opens up his hand. "TANDLE!" he shouts, the bolt of lightning streaking from his hand. He immediately follows it up with a bolt of Tsu, the light streaking from his fingertips.
Aetos jogs over to Rune and drills into him He then shish kebobs Rune, oucherz! "Me want my shineys!!" *He steps back, almost dizzied.*
Rune stands back up, looking pissed. "That's it, you're dead."
Rune: *He runs at Aetos and bashes him in the head with the Psycho Wand, angered.*
Aetos falls down, with a big bruise on the head from the wand
Aetos shineys up "Sparkly revivify! yay!" He makes a hand gesture and a gust of dark colored windy stuff flows through the arena towards Rune "Damn, your unnaffected by my poisons!"
Rune grins. "Yeah... bye! Tandle! Foi!"
Rune: *The lighting strekas towards Aetos, followed by the fireball...*
Aetos gets shocked massively by the elecricity attack, and falls down... but as the fireball comes to him, he raises his arm and the fireball is deflected. He stands bback up, shakey from the electrocution... "Nice try... I guess."
Rune: "Just gotta remember not to burn you."
Aetos runs up to Rune and impales him with his spear.
Rune growls and attempts to throw himself off the spear... no blood pours out of his body, but instead, some white liquid... slightly glowing, too.
Aetos then drills the spear into Rune again... not caring about the damage. He steps back whiping sweat off his forehead "Tough guy."
Rune stands back up. "You're toast now, buddy." He bashes the guy over the head with the wand, again.
Aetos hand starts to move involuntarily He flies backward from the hit "Youuucchh."
Rune: *The wand flashes white, leaving a burn on Aetos' head.*
Aetos dizzied. He shines one last time and stands "Moment of truth I suppose..." He runs up to Rune and shish kebobs him He cheers He jump up, continuously trying to fly again, but still fails. He rolls his eyes. He leaves the arena, and walks to Moody Mandy's shop stand...
Aetos flashes a can of Metal Cola in front of Mood Mandy "You want the soda, don't you?" *He tosses it into Mandy's hands, for 400 coins.*
Metal Man (GM): I just give you both 100 EXP and another 100 EXP if you don't ask any more questions for the rest of today. Now I must brb.
Jina stumbled into the arena, obviously utterly confused more so than usual. "Woah. Interesting city."
Aetos walks back to the arena, whiping blood off his spear, then gets there to sit in the audience
Rune pockets the Psycho Wand in its sheath, raising an eyebrow at Jina. "Didn't I kill you already?"
Jina: "You did? Cool. ...Well, he is silent."
Aetos hops down in place of the Rune fellow.
Jina: "Er... hello?"
Aetos: "Hi!" *He grins. He tosses his spear onto the ground, his cape flutters in the wind.*
Jina: "Nice cape."
Jina: *taps his huge helmet.* "My helmet is cooler, though."
Aetos: "Shouldn't you be taking that off? If you want no weapons?"
Jina: "This is no weapon."
Aetos does some kind of stance... "Ready now?"
Jina nods, straightening his helmet. He would first pull out, from his helmet, a frying pan, something in it fizzling... sausages. They would be flung at Aetos.
Aetos: "Eeek! Not SAUSAGES!!!!! AHHH." *He laughs. He gets nailed by a sausage unexpectedly, but spots the other flying and him and nimbly moves away from it.* "You're crazy!"
Jina: "Really? Thank you!" *He reels his fist back in a smash attack!*
Aetos moves away from his/her punch... "Thats a very unusual attack you have! What's it called?"
Jina: "We call it... Chef!"
Aetos: "Neat!" *He raises his hand up. Jina goes flying up in the same motion...*
Jina is flinged?
Aetos: *Jina would be seen flying down to Earth now... then... SLAM!*
Jina peels himself off the ground. "Owwie..."
Aetos's cape flusters as the wind pushed Jina up... "One more... but... I can't use any more melee attacks." *He defends * "Your go."
Jina pulls out another frying pan. "Sasuage... ho!" *He flings another two.*
Aetos: "Another sausa-- !" *He gets pelted by two sausages this time...* "Ouch!"
Jina: "Try them, they taste good."
Jina nods. "You'd think they're hard, buy they taste good."
Aetos looks for one on the ground, then picks it up and eats it "Delicious! Erm..."
Jina goes for a smash! ...again...
Aetos moves his bodyaway from the rock Jina punch 20 yards away... "Why don't you try something else?"
Jina: "Because... I am your father!"
Aetos: "Technically, this move doesn't need my weapon-- OH EM GEE! DAD! I've MISSED YOU SO MUCH!"
Aetos: "!! DIE!"
Jina: "NOT JOKING!"
Aetos raises his hands above his head, and a tornado somehow starts twirling around his body. "OH MY GOSH I LOVE YOU DADDY." *He defends...*
Jina blinks..."I was not serious..."
Aetos: "Stop playing with my heart!" *He tears*
Jina slams for more sasuage!
Aetos stands as one sausage falls on the ground, and another somehow bounces up and bounces off Jina's head...
Jina slams MORE sausages.
Aetos: *A sausage flies into the tornado and spins around, then flies out.*
Jina begins to mumble... "Schwaaaaaaaa?"
Aetos: "My own little wind barrier. With those sausages, you won't be getting through anytime soon."
Aetos runs up to Jina, and punches him... He probably swings to the side, missing Jina by a mile...
Jina blinks. "Nice mile."
Aetos: "Thanks!" *He throws up his hands... A great bright cloud-like thing seems to be falling down right to Jina... about to crush him.*
Aetos grins "Your turn now."
Jina slaps his final two sausages.
Aetos nearly gets hit by the second one but he barely evades it.
Jina goes to grab Aetos.
Aetos: "Why didn't you use any other moves? Eek!" *He runs away from Jina like Wily E Coyote & Road Runner.*
Aetos tries again to punch Jina, actually, tries twice.
Jina grumbles. "For that..." *He puts his frying pan away.*
Jina goes for a quick smash...
Aetos gets smashed in the face "Owowow my nooosseee. Not!" *Your hand gets pushed away by the tornado.*
Aetos: "At least from that it's almost out..."
Jina frowns. "I could use THAT... I can't win... so... out with a jolt!"
Aetos: "Jolt!? Uh oh!"
Jina taps his helmet, it becomes a pichu hat! He spits out a jolt of eletricty.
Aetos: "Eeek!" *He starts buzzing about...* "owowowowowowowow..."
Jina grunts, shocked by his own attack!
Aetos's shield dissipates and he takes more damage.
Jina uses eyespy.
Aetos falls down "Ouch!!" He summons another blast of Divine Wind from the sky
Jina goes ow. "Ouch... I'm feeling that in the morning."
Aetos: "You know what?"
Aetos pokes you in the eye. "I think you need more practice. Friends?"
Jina: "Sure, why not."
Aetos: "Right-o..." *He gauges his eye out, ... then... uh... this is hard with no weapon, he uh... rips off his own arm... then dies... sacrificing himself to heal Jina completely.*
Jina blinks? "Uh... that was strange."
Aetos stands up, healed up "Congrats!"
Jina was at 100 HP... >_>
Aetos shakes Jina's hand
Jina shakes Aeto's hand?
Aetos: "Now, I expect you to make me 5 sausages eeeevveryyy morning! hehehe..."
Jina sweatdrops. "Uh... sure..."
Aetos: "Yay yay yay !" *He pretends to summon a melee item... "Here!" *He hands Jina the heart container.* "It heals you for 100% Damage!"
Jina: "I... see."
Aetos walks back to his hut for rest.
Jina wanders off to sleep... in a tree!
Giallar pops into the arena, wearing his helmet.
Aetos wants Jina's Raptor Boost...
Rune sits on the sidelines, watching quietly.
Metal Man (GM): http://www.vgmusic.com/music/console/sony/ps2/Disappeared.mid
Aetos walks over next to Rune and watches with him...
Tridus: "May the better combatant win!"
Rune: "Don't know how much louder you can scream 'EVIL!' to the world..."
Jina blinks. "Uh... interesting sword... and sure." He taps his helmet, switching it to a Pichu hat, charging at Tridus with a Baby Jolt.
Rune bursts into laughter at the hat. "MAN you look stupid!"
Aetos: "That's very cruel you know... He is just fighting..."
Metal Man (GM): You barely hit.
Tridus: *He takes the damage... almost smiling.* "Nice attack."
Aetos: "Criticizing people's fighting styles will only result in hate towards you..."
Rune: "So hate me."
Jina moves to the side, coming in with a smash. "Er... thank you?"
Aetos tears "But I don't WANT to hate you..."
Azure: "No need to cause a scene. How ever funny it may seem it still made its mark." *Azure appears before Aetos and Rune, floating downward sitting down in his seat.*
Tridus: *He barely avoids the attack, with a quick duck.*
Jina: "Poop. Yir faster then you look, you know."
Tridus: "Feel the true power of EVIL!"
Metal Man (GM): *PSYCHOTIC*
Rune: "Very few combatants would ever, ever... oh, that's how loud he can shout it."
Rune grins. "Let me show you how it's done. THIS GUY'S EVIL!!!!!!!"
Tridus: *He glows, summoning a ball of dark lightning... ala Ganondorf. He then hurls it at Jinarceg.*
Jina goes 'ow'.
Metal Man (GM): *ZOOM* *PFHAHAGAGAHAHAGAH*
Rune winces at the attack.
Metal Man (GM): 56 dark and electric damage.
Aetos: "Yo Rune, does that Tridus guy seem a little... insane to you?"
Jina gaps. "O... ouch."
Tridus: "The flames of darkness consume you!"
Rune: "Nah. Though that was CLEARLY the thunder of darkness."
Tridus: *He points his palm at Jina, and a stream of dark flames fly at him.*
Rune: "Not insane, maybe just a little... ah, THERE's the flames."
Jina: *All hit Jina.*
Metal Man (GM): Jinarceg takes 42 dark fire damage.
Tridus: *After burning Jina with the flames of darkness, he assumes a defensive position* "Hmph."
Aetos watches Jina get invoked by evil lightning and fire, while thinking about what hell use his next three weapon cubes for... Critical edge, or Critical enhancement B. He then thinks that he is putting to much faith in his weapon... so perhaps an armor coating.
Jina groans, burnt badly. "...Ow... uch..."
Aetos then thinks an After-effect would be peachy...
Jina taps his Pichu hat, a frying pan popping out.
Azure: "He is using darkness but he has yet to show any real evil tendencies."
Rune: "No, because 'feel the power of evil' isn't at all a tendency. I can see how that could be misconstrued."
Jina flips the sausages out before slamming them at Tridus.
Metal Man (GM): Well, normally you'd miss. But Tridus just stands there and is hit.
Metal Man (GM): Apparently, while psychotic against you, he uses all his energy for offense.
Jina eyespies Tridus right about then.
Metal Man (GM): What's the damage from the sausages? 28/100 Doesn' t matter. Tridus is instantly hit by each sausage.
Jina charges at Metal with a Baby Jolt.
Metal Man (GM): You can't. You just revived ..No, you can't redo attack actions. You made it appear so. Anyway, Tridus sits there and is hit by the Baby Bolt.
Jina owws by his own attack, per usual.
Rune: "He's fighting a losing battle, obviously..."
Metal Man (GM): Roll another mortality check.
Metal Man (GM): Well, as long as you aren't 21 HP over the limit, you live. No, that won't work.
Aetos: "He keeps doing damage to himself, against this dark fellow, I suspect it isn't a good idea."
Metal Man (GM): I said the self-damage is unaffected by element.
Tridus: "Nice try. Now take this!"
Jina gulps. "Will this hurt much?"
Metal Man (GM): Two crit misses, but... waaay above your AC. Tridus walks up to Jina, then gingerly pokes the air in front of his eyes. Now attack.
Jina pulls out the frying pan again.
Metal Man (GM): Well, you hit him twice, because he's just sitting there.
Jina blinks, and throws another two?
Metal Man (GM): He takes those as well, but doesn't seem to care.
Tridus: "LIGHTNING DEAAAATH!!!"
Jina: "...Crazy dude..."
Rune: "Well, that sounds both pleasant and good-natured. I can certainly see why you don't think he's evil."
Aetos just thought of another move he could practice.
Metal Man (GM): 102 dark electric damage ker-kills j00.
Jina isn't going to bother a mort... is shocked and killed.
Aetos: *A lightbulb flashes above Aetos' head, then vanishes before anyone sees it...*
Jina: "That... hurt... a lot."
Metal Man (GM): Your turn.
Rune: "I wonder if we can fling random attacks down at people? That'd be pretty fun..."
Jina reappears in a vortex of leaves.
Tridus: "The pain is only beginning!"
Aetos: "Like, our attacks? At them?"
Rune yells to Tridus. "Yeah, it is, especially if you have more of those crap-tastic lines! Yeah, like our attacks, at them."
Jina: "...What is you're alignment of choice in D&D?...I don't suppose Chaotic Neutral?"
Azure: "Your the one who uses light and your thinking like that?"
Jina taps his head to Pichu hat; Baby jolt.
Tridus: "What is D&D?"
Aetos summons a cloud of dark wind, it starts swirling idly next to him.
Jina: "Er... nevermind."
Rune: "I fail to see the connection between an increase of challenge, and me using light energy."
Metal Man (GM): You hit him, causing a mortality check... Well, he basically sits there and survives despite the fact that he should be dead.
Azure: "Seems I misunderstood, sounded like you wanted to pelt them with your attacks in the middle of their fight. My apologies."
Aetos: "We do."
Metal Man (GM): 116/100
Aetos's dark wind starts to circle around Azure, not touching him.
Rune: "I mean, it's more fun with a little unknown danger. Right?"
Jina turns at Rune. "If you do, aim for him!", pointing at Tridus.
Rune: "I'll attack whoever I damn well want to."
Aetos's dark wind then forms a ring around Rune "Don't be so rude!"
Azure: "If... that's the case you both... clearly misunderstand the meaning of a duel." *He sighs then looks at Aetos.* "And this is suppose to be... "
Rune: "Duels aren't any fun, one-sided."
Aetos: "My... Dark Wind attack, you've seen it before Azure!"
Tridus: "Surely I should try something different... let us see..."
Azure: "That's plainly... that's obvious. Now why is it around me?"
Aetos commands the cloud to dissipate.
Tridus: *He hurls a ball of even more powerful electric dark energy at Jina.*
Jina: "Somehow, I think he's crazy..."
Metal Man (GM): *CRIT*
Azure: *Looks to Rune and sighs then turns back to the fight.*
Metal Man (GM): 96 dark electric damage and paralysis.
Jina goes flying against the wall.
Rune: "Hey, Tridus. After this is done, let's see which of us is better, eh?"
Metal Man (GM): Tridus then tries to finish you off with a sword stab. ...He manages to critically avoid hitting you, instead stabbing the air.
Jina grunts. "I'm lucky you're aim is off today."
Rune: "You're lucky you're not DEAD."
Charles Magellean begins to move forward among the sits... until he's in the front row.
Aetos summons a bright cloud from the heavens to come crashing onto the field, but it dissipates just before hitting Jina & Tridus.
Rune: "'lo, Charles."
Jina claps, pulling out a... wet noodle?! He whips the noodle at Tridus.
Metal Man (GM): Hits anyway... Tridus lets it hit him. Tridus is just barely killed. He reappears... now Vengeful and Psychotic. His turn, 'cause you can't do anything else while he's gone.
Jina pulls at his collar, grinning nervously. He puts up Falco's Reflector.
Aetos laughs and his head jumps off his body and starts flying around with propellers on it, then it lands back on his head before anyone sees
Tridus: "Let's see how you deal with a sword to the head!"
Metal Man (GM): *ZOOM* 80 dark damage.
Jina is dead. Obviously.
Jina goes for Baby Jolt.
Aetos thinks he could beat this Tridus man, but not the metal one.
Rune is 90% certain he could whup Tridus something awful.
Metal Man (GM): The Baby Jolt hits. Nope, you died once.
Tridus: *He goes and gives Jina a noogie... an electric lightning ball to the head.*
Aetos thinks 90% is a little... arrogant
Metal Man (GM): 56 dark electric damage.
Jina wonders how he got a noogie with a helmet on... but is hurt nonetheless.
Tridus: *He decides to shoot another ball of lightning for added measure.*
Metal Man (GM): *KER-ZAP* 56 dark electric damage.
Aetos has an idea for a 2X0 bonus.
Metal Man (GM): Tridus remains all evil and glowing-y.
Jina grumbles something about lighting. "Alright... I can't win." *He goes for a baby jolt... again...>_> Does he do anything else these days?*
Metal Man (GM): 20 damage
Tridus: "You're too right! Let me finish this."
Jina: "I had to open my big fat mouth."
Rune grins. "THIS oughta be REALLY good."
Tridus: *Fires off more dark lightning.*
Jina is hit.
Metal Man (GM): Total: 112 dark electric damage.
Jina does a deathcry.
Tridus: "And so, I have won with little resistance. That was easy."
Metal Man (GM): +20 EXP to Jina
Jina respawns, sticking his tongue out at Tridus. "Put-down."
Metal Man (GM): +100 EXP to Tridus
Aetos pushes Rune into the arena "Go go I wanna watch you dieeee!"
Rune: "We'll see."
Tridus: "Who's this? Some little boy fresh off the farm has come to see his first being of darkness?"
Jina goes up to Aetos eating his sausages.
Tridus: *He laughs evily*
Rune hops down into the arena.
Jina throws a sasuage or two at Tridus. "Meanie."
Tridus: "Oh, I only destroyed an entire planet."
Rune: "'Oh, I only destroyed an entire planet.' Big freaking whoop."
Julian Sawyer: *Enters the stadium stands and sits by other Questers.* "Alright, who's gonna whoop who?"
Tridus: "Now, it depends upon who you think I am. The Void has destroyed entire dimensions before."
Aetos chants "Fight Fight, Fight Fight..."
Rune: "Wooo! Big talk!"
Tridus: "I've just destroyed a planet, Illian Macgregor's health, and several Questers."
Rune: "Don't write a check you can't cash."
Aetos whispers to Julian
Azure: "Sounds like advice you should... take..."
Tridus: "You can do your worst, but killing me makes me stronger!"
Rune: "And dead. Stronger and dead."
Julian Sawyer: "Speak up, can't hear ya."
Aetos growls "You heard me buster!"
Metal Man (GM): http://www.vgmusic.com/music/console/sony/ps2/Disappeared.mid <-- More o this
Rune whips his ands in a circle, singing. The light grows in his eyes and mouth, and he flings his head back, shooting the Efess into the sky. The three beams of light slam down on Tridus, with a Tsu bursting from his hand a moment later.
Metal Man (GM): All hit, of course.
Rune: *36 damage/hit Then the Tsu.*
Metal Man (GM): Well, duh, he can't survive this... but he goes down, laughing. He reappears, Psychotic and Vengeful. He then attacks!
Jina looks at Tridus, shaking his head..."He is crazy."
Metal Man (GM): *ZZZZAP* His mist interferes with your lightning, negating it.
Rune: "Aw, damn."
Metal Man (GM): 112 damage. Electric damage.
Rune: "Was that supposed to kill me? Eat this."
Tridus: "No, it was supposed to turn you into an arrogant idiot. It appears to have worked."
Rune flings out his hands, and traces in the air 'L-E-G-E-O-N.' The light explodes around Tridus, and a piercing beam of light stabs him in the face (Tsu)
Metal Man (GM): He survives. Because of that roll.
Tridus: "What? You didn't kill me again immediately? Foolish!!!"
Rune: "You're tougher than you look, you know."
Tridus: "Take this!"
Julian Sawyer: "KILL HIM!"
Tridus: *He charges towards Rune with his sword... twice.*
Jina: "That guy is insanely arrgoant."
Metal Man (GM): 80 total damage. None. He can turn it on and off! Gasp!
Rune goes down, then gets back up. "Oy..." A flash of light later, and he's fully healed (representing life loss). He throws back his head, and the beams of light streak out, then slam back down into Tridus.
Metal Man (GM): Or at least, they should... you just realized a nasty feature of that barrier.
Rune: "Man, you're irritating."
Metal Man (GM): Light element, right? The barrier eats them.
Tridus: "I was just toying with you there. I can't even be healed."
Rune: "Uh... what?"
Tridus: "Let alone damaged by that accursed light!"
Rune: "I wasn't trying to heal you, I was trying to /kill/ you."
Tridus: "No, THIS is how you kill someone."
Aetos watches, in his mind thinking repeatedly .oO(I told you so I told you so...)
Tridus: *He runs up to Rune and tries to head-butt him.*
Metal Man (GM): 10 damage, paralysis. He then follows it up with a ball of lightning. CRIT
Azure: "Putting advantage solely on one thing won't win him this. He needs to look at other options."
Metal Man (GM): 112 Electric damage... well, you're already paralyzed.
Julian Sawyer: "Woohoo!"
Rune stands back up, swapping the Psycho Wand to special mode.
Rune: "**** off, Julian."
Tridus: "You have a nice weapon. It's just a shame it's inferior to mine."
Julian Sawyer: "No."
Tridus: *He runs up to slash Rune twice.*
Metal Man (GM): 40 damage per hit.
Rune grins and smacks Tridus with the Psycho Wand. "DEBARRIER" activates if it hits.
Metal Man (GM): He laughs, and actually grabs the your hand and hits himself with the wand. Oops, you killed Tridus. There goes your debarrier...
Tridus: *He dies before you can touch him while without a barrier.*
Rune then casts NaRes on himself, healing 38/80 damage dealt to him.
Metal Man (GM): Tridus returns, now powered up by psychotic and vengeful. He casts a highly powerful lightning ball at you. *CRIT* He deals a total of 224 electric damage to you. Yes. It's like the middle of the sun exploded. *BOOOOOOOM* Tridus gains +400 EXP for managing to manipulate you long enough that you didn't realize he could be debarrierd and lose his shield and then get blasted. You gain 100 EXP for managing to hold out as long as you did. Sure.
Tridus: "Let that be a lesson to those who think the dark kneels to the will of light."
Rune flips off Tridus.
Tridus: *He laughs*
Rune: "Go suck yourself."
Tridus: "You speak foully for a light one. Why not join the dark side?"
Rune: "I have a better dental plan on the side of Good."
Aetos hops down into the arena and pushes Rune out of it, "whee!"
Tridus: *He looks incredulous* "You, too, want to fight me?"
Rune heads up to the stands, where he smacks Julian in the back of the head with the Psycho Wand. "Rooting for the evil people is pretty stupid."
Aetos: "Erm, Yes please sir."
Julian Sawyer: *Ducks* "Who said he was evil? He's just dark."
Rune: "HE SAID HE WAS EVIL. About forty freaking times!"
Garrick Fy`aar: "Quiet."
Rune: "'Feel the power of evil!' 'Feel the flames of evil!' 'Join the dark side!'"
Julian Sawyer: "Unless he starts attacking us or anything, I don't consider him evil."
Garrick Fy`aar makes his way down to the stands where everyone else is.
Julian Sawyer: "Yo, Garrick."
Garrick Fy`aar nods to Julian before sitting down and leaning back a bit. "Can we stop the yelling and concentrate on other things?"
Aetos: "Are you ready, sir?"
Julian Sawyer: "I ain't yellin'. That's all him."
Aetos raises his hand up...
Metal Man (GM): Tridus is hit by whatever the heck that is. I mean, like, he stands there, and then is surprised by deadly fast doom.
Aetos: *Tridus would be seen flying up into the air then falling back down...*
Tridus: "What the? Ahhhhh!!!! Ow... how'd you manage to surprise me like that?"
Jina points and laughs a a surprised Tridus.
Aetos tries to summon a dark wind to where Tridus falls/fells... "Hehehe."
Metal Man (GM): Hit. What element is this?
Aetos: *A cloud of dark shaded wind envelopes you... 28 dmg and poison*
Metal Man (GM): Ok.
Tridus: "...Ouch... I'll teach you to poison me!"
Aetos: "Hehe, Sorry sir."
Tridus: "That's just fine... if you beat me, it will be fair."
Aetos grins "Watcha gunna do now?"
Tridus: "Now then... lightning assault!"
Tridus: *He hurls two balls of lightning at Aetos.*
Aetos closes his eyes tight "Owowowowowowowowow."
Metal Man (GM): *ZZZZZAP*
Metal Man (GM): You take 112 electric damage.
Aetos gets blasted back against a wall or something, sparks flying off his corpse.
Metal Man (GM): ...Well, Aetos is, like, obliterated.
Tridus: "...I don't remember being able to do that."
Aetos's pulsing corpse shines and revives. "OW MAN!!!" He growls He runs up to Tridus and shish Kebobs him up his spine.
Metal Man (GM): ...No need for lucky ..Oooookay... He stands there and is hit, no matter how low your roll is.
Aetos starts cracking up.
Metal Man (GM): He's using all his energy to attack. Rather than try to even dodge. And you barely kill him.
Metal Man (GM): Whattaya do during your action left?
Aetos: "Maybe I'll get lucky later..."
Tridus: *He reappears, and decides to give Aetos another taste of Zappy lightning.*
Aetos: "Grah! Not again! Aaaghh."
Metal Man (GM): Same 224 damage as before, thanks to Vengeful and your weakness. It's like, insta-toast.
Aetos gets charred and his head pops off from all the electricity... a little much... yeah... He revives, "Why do you keep doing that!?"
Julian Sawyer: "...Did his head always do that?"
Aetos: "Grrr." *He drills his spear into Tridus. He seems to have been drilling the ground instead. 'There's gold in them there hills!'*
Metal Man (GM): You hit him, because he's been standing still.
Aetos actually turned out to be drilling into the ground the up back at Tridus then...
Aetos salutes to the audience. He shrugs. .oO(Heh, maybe he wont obliterate me like that again.)
Julian Sawyer: "Did your head ALWAYS do that?"
Tridus: *He fires two balls of lightning at Aetos*
Aetos: "No no, just, no one has ever ... electrocuted me so much before..."
Metal Man (GM): Let's see... first one goes flying off into the horizon.
Aetos turns back at the balls "CHEAP!"
Metal Man (GM): Second one goes flying into your face and deals 112 damage.
Rune ducks. "Close."
Aetos stands, with a little tiny bit less then an ounce of life left. "Grr, I hate your lightning."
Tridus: "It makes me feel like Ganondorf. But who would want shiny triangles made out of cheap gold?"
Aetos: "Hm... who? Nevermind that... After I kill you now, You'll just kill me back."
Tridus: "Indeed... I've turned everything on its head."
Aetos runs up to Tridus and impales him once.
Rune looks at Julian oddly.
Metal Man (GM): He sits there and gets impaled.
Rune: "...and you say I'M the arrogant one?"
Metal Man (GM): He barely survives. Then he barely survives you to death with lightning. Another one goes flying off into the horizon. But the first one KA-ZAPs you for 112.
Aetos: "Gahhh agaiinn!?" *He dizzies for the last time, damned electricity. He stands, fight over,* "You and your cheap exploits. hehe, Congratulations sir."
Metal Man (GM): *END OF BATTLES FOR TRIDUS Awards Crowd DISpleaser: -1000 Critical Miss Swordsman: +2000 On the Brink: +100 Cheap Attacks: -300* Total Coins rewarded: 800 to Tridus EXP: Aetos: 80 Tridus: 1
Tridus: "Well, I won again. What a shame."
Tridus: "But I am too tired to fight anyone else..."
Metal Man walks into the area. "Well, I could fight someone."
Tridus: "...I thought you had paperwork!"
Metal Man: "Paperwork? Seeing the person who destroyed my planet is more interesting."
Tridus: "Hmph. You were the one who knocked me into that button."
Metal Man: "Yeah, and you pushed me into a pit of lava."
Tridus: "...>.>. I think I'll go take a rest... the heat is getting to me."
Metal Man: "Meh."
Tridus: *Walks off*
Metal Man: "So then. Does anyone feel extraordinarily lucky, stupid, or just plain strong enough to fight me?"
Aetos waves to Tridus... "I suppose I feel Lucky, and stupid... probably not strong enough. Would you like to fight with me, President?"
Metal Man: "Are you sure? I'm not a jerk like Tridus. I'd probably beat you to a pulp by accident."
Aetos: "That sounds better then what he did! It was like Superman fighting a man made of Kryptonite."
Metal Man: "I see. So you've been to Earth once or twice?"
Aetos: "I, live... lived there. Well? How about it?"
Metal Man: "Just a moment." *He seems to be... tying his boots?*
Aetos: "Very well... If I manage to get more powerful sometime soon, I'll have to show you a new fighting attack I wish to practice."
Metal Man: "Ah."
Metal Man (GM): Okay, then.
Metal Man: "I'm ready. Let's fight!"
Aetos: "Roger!" *He blackflips away a bit to get ready.*
Metal Man: "Let's see how much damage you can take! ICE WAVE!!!"
Metal Man screams into his bullhorn, projecting frozen words at Aetos.
Aetos: "Ahh THAT'S COLD!"
Metal Man (GM): That's... 150 ice damage.
Aetos gets frozen solid, body turned blue. His body shatters...
Metal Man takes his other two actions to defend. +4 AC
Aetos: *The area where the body shattered shines bright and... And he is revivified He starts jumping up and down, shivering* "That's cold man."
Metal Man: "I'm all cool. Cooold to the core."
Metal Man: "Now then. Give me your best shot."
Aetos runs back up the Metal and tries to shish kebob him
Metal Man (GM): Metal dodges the attack.
Metal Man: "I forgot that new people had slow attacks... sorry."
Aetos: "Blah blah blah..." *He stabs the air...*
Metal Man attacks Aetos... with the DEATHMACHINE!"
Metal Man (GM): Aetos takes 45 damage.
Metal Man then reels off two Mega Punches at Aetos.
Metal Man (GM): *CRIT* If all hit, that's 75 damage.
Aetos gets nailed in the face by a bunch of colored eggs, causing him to falls backwards. He gets punched right through... died again maybe. *Yup* He shines then pulls himself off on Metal's arm. "My last... not even a hope! This is a disaster!" *He tries to drill into Metal*
Metal Man (GM): One hit. Metal takes the hit... what the hell? He's just standing there... not near death yet.
Metal Man: "That was medium good."
Aetos has a tear running down his face
Metal Man finishes off the battle with a hail of eightballs.
Aetos: "Heh! Imagine if they both hit!... Oh dear god!"
Metal Man (GM): 10 damage per hit.
Aetos gets pummeled by the barrage of eightballs, and dies, bruised and battered.
Metal Man (GM): 0 EXP to everybody
Aetos stands again "Well, that was fun."
Metal Man: "...That was sorta boring. Try again when you get more experience."
Aetos: "Getting pummeled by easter eggs is a blast though..."
Metal Man: "Heh."
Aetos: "Well, Seeya." *He jumps away back to his hut.*
Jina appears in the arena.
MrMonster also enters the arena, Miirnalk in hand.
Jina muttered something, turning to Mr. Monster. "Um... no weapons?"
MrMonster: "Hrm... Fine with me." *The Trulander sheathes his blade.*
Jina taps his head, pulling out a frying pan and starting with his favorite move, slamming sausages.
Aetos runs up to the arena, "Free for all?? I wont use my weapon!"
MrMonster: "Gah! Blasted sausages..."
Aetos: "Can I play can I play??"
MrMonster is hit by a single sausage. "Sure... More people to bash."
Aetos drops his spear where he is then jumps down into the battlegrounds "whee!"
Jina charges at Mr.Monster with a smash attack.
MrMonster is knocked back a few feet by the attack.
Aetos whistles "What can I do without my spear..." *He starts counting fingers...*
MrMonster: "You'll have to do better than that... " *The Trulander kinetically charges up his fist and returns his own Smash Attack at Jina before summoning up a PK Shield.*
Jina flies back about a meter, grunting. "Nice punch!"
MrMonster: "Thankyou... You'll find that I've more psionic-enhancing techniques than just that."
Aetos: "Ok... what to do..." *He just stands there and a strange item pops into existence before him. Beam sword! Hooooooo. He grabs the sword and smacks Jina with it.*
Jina is slashed... and bleeds... and such... He blinks, tapping his hat and turning it Pichu... looking really odd... before unleashing two baby jolts on M.Monster.
Aetos wipes his brow
MrMonster: "B-blasted e-electric-city..." *He shakes his head, glad he avoided the second bolt. He forms a white energy sword in his hand and looks at Aetos...* "You want swords, eh? Then take this! Kinetic Shot!" The Trulander uses a Sword Shot on Aetos... Second action to be decided.
MrMonster then forms green rings of psionic energy in his hand... A Ring Toss move. The Trulander lets the attack fly towards not just Aetos, but also Jina!
Aetos: "What the heck are those!?" *He gets some thrown at his arms* "It kinda stings..."
Jina is bonked in the head by the ring. "What is THAT?"
MrMonster: "It's suppose to sting... Rings of psionic energy. Painful and effective."
Aetos mutters to himself "Grah!" *He runs up to Mr. Monster and baps him with his beam sword*
MrMonster is smacked by the sword. "Blasted beam sword!"
Aetos then steps back and twirls his sword above him, creating a tornado shield around him.
Jina blinks. He grins at Aetos.
Aetos: "!? What??"
MrMonster steps away from the doomed Aetos.
Aetos blinks, scared...
Jina launches another two baby jolts, this time at Aetos.
Aetos's shield goes down, just kinda vanishes, while Aetos is twitching, body emitting some sparks "Yowowowow!"
Jina eyespys Aetos, ending his turn.
Aetos's hand starts twitching
MrMonster leaps up and over Aetos's body to reach Jina, where he proceeds to Jump Drill his foe and follows it up with an Electric Fan melee move. (...) *Mr. Monster REALLY fails at the Jump Drill.*
Jina dodges the Jumping Drill deftly. He dodges the first thing from the Electric fan, but is hit by the second.
MrMonster: "Stand STILL!"
Aetos decides to toss the beam sword and try to summon another item... hopefully better. *A Mr. Saturn plops out of nothing* "Damn, useless..." *He picks it up and throws it at Jina*
Jina ducks, the little... Saturn flying overhead. He counted on his fingers, nodding... and unleashing another Baby Jolt on Aetos.
Aetos tries to run away but gets zapped "Whyy meeeeeeakdxbvbzzz... bzzt..." *He dies anyways, corpse buzzing and the like*
Jina gets the beamsword.
MrMonster: "Hrm... I'd suggest you drop that sword, but you probably wouldn't listen."
Jina: "Why is that."
MrMonster shrugs before rushing towards Jina, holding out his hand as a small bolt of energy flies into Jina, a Confusion move. He then SLAMS his fist into Jina... A Smash attack.
Jina is hit. *is hit by BOTH!*
Aetos attempts to get a good item one last time. A Green Shell pops into the arena. "Might as well..." *He picks it up and bowls it at Mr.M. He snaps.*
MrMonster barely manages to leap over the shell.
Jina groans... dizzy. He takes his chances... loading a Meteor Samsh on M.Monster.
MrMonster runs over, punches Aetos, and then tries to grab him and hold him as a shield.
Aetos takes a whopping 13 dmg from the grab.
MrMonster then tries to hold onto Aetos to prevent him from escaping, ending his turn.
Aetos attempts to break free then...
MrMonster: "Gah! You're suppose to be a meatshield for me!" *He can't hold Aetos...*
Aetos pushes himself away, then 'Push'es Mr.M into the air!
Aetos watches the creature fall to his doooommm... "Thats what you get for grabbing ME!"
MrMonster falls down on the other side of the arena, groaning...
Aetos points to Jina, "Next time, grab HIM."
MrMonster rolls out of the way of the punch...
Jina disappears in ninja smoke!
MrMonster: "Ummm... Then it's just you and me now." *The Trulander jumps onto his feet before throwing several waves of Needles at Aetos and then a Sword Shot.*
Aetos: "Yipe! Those are strange attacks! Now you're gonna get it..." *He walks over to Mr. M and kicks him...*
MrMonster: "Gah! My shin!" *He is looking really worn out... He can't take much more.*
Aetos grumbles "You're not dead yet??" He kicks him again then.
MrMonster huffs and puffs, nearly spent... "Not... Yet..."
Aetos: "Durn eet!"
MrMonster takes a point of bleeding damage... *... And luckily survives it before summoning another Sword Shot on Aetos and then a Drill Jump.*
Aetos doesn't exactly know what the sword shot does so he will just be 'hit' by it... "NOWWW WILL YOU DIE!?" *He punches Mr. M in the face. He growls.*
MrMonster ducks under the punch.
Aetos punches again
MrMonster: "I will die once I see your dea--Gah!" *He is launched back a few feet... And he isn't moving.*
MrMonster then reappears in a flash of light... Almost as good as new. "... Uuugh... You got me that time, but not again."
MrMonster kinetically enhances his fist and Smash Attacks Aetos.
Aetos jumps away from it.
MrMonster: "Stand still!"
Aetos: "Nah." *He makes a hand gesture, and a cloud of black... cloudyness floats over to you*
MrMonster is cloud'd. He coughs several times... "Ugh... Trying to poison me, eh? I'll have to do this quickly then..."
Aetos jumps up and kicks Mr.M in the face. He jumps over too far and crash lands.
MrMonster falls to the ground, Aetos sailing right over him. He then pushes off the air and backflips over, and on top of Aetos, with a Jumping Stop before coming down with a Jumping Drill.
Aetos gets stomped on, bad "What's with you!?" *He rolls to the side of the drill.*
MrMonster: "What's with you?"
MrMonster: "I have no one with me..."
Aetos uhh He picks up the green shell again and hucks it at Mr.M. *Crit*
MrMonster is critically BONK'D!
Aetos then summons up another wind barrier "You'll probably get through this easily..."
MrMonster: "Hrm..." *He fires a Sword Shot at the barrier and runs towards Aetos, Electric Fanning it.*
Aetos: *The sword or whatever gets blown away. His shield dissipates, but he only ends up taking 2 damage. "Why'd you go and do that??" *He defends twice.*
MrMonster: "Because the goal is to hit you, not the shield... The shield needed to be destroyed." *He stands back and starts charging up a Meteor Smash.*
Aetos: "Yikes... I can easily stop you, you know..."
Aetos: "Ok then." *He PUSHes Mr.M into the air again.*
MrMonster is PUSHed. "Gah... I didn't actually mean for you to try!"
Aetos: "Oh... Sorry?" *He defends.*
MrMonster: "Time for you to die..." *He sends a Sword Shot at Aetos before Smashing him.*
Aetos gets nailed by the sword... bbut dodges the smash. He falls, barely alive. He stops moving...
Aetos shines and stands with one life to live. "Now it's your turn?"
MrMonster: "My turn to chuckle at your defeat? Yes."
Aetos pushes MrMonster again... and plans to kick him once he lands
MrMonster survive the Push, but looks HORRIBLE. "You won't beat me..."
Aetos trips and ends up hurting himself some. "Maybe not..." *He looks all twisted upon the ground. He straightens himself up and stands. He brushes some dirt off his person.*
MrMonster punches Aetos twice. "How about making this easy and just giving up?"
Aetos gets punched twice, his cheek swollen.
MrMonster then falls down, dead...
Aetos: "Huh... heh Poison IS handy, but... CRAP! NOW what am I going to do while he's gone!?" *He summons a barrier one last time, then defends.*
MrMonster comes back again and looks at Aetos's barrier... He tries an Electric Fan on it, the same attack that destroyed it last time.
Aetos: *The first fan slaps the wind barrier, the other just slaps the wind* "Ok... is that it? then..." *He kicks Mr.M again*
MrMonster: "Gah! Do you have something against my shin?"
Aetos: "Of course." *He defends once more*
MrMonster takes an Electric Fan and a series of painful Needles to Aetos's shin.
Aetos: *The fans both slap the barrier this time. He Punches Monster...*
MrMonster steps away from the punch.
Aetos summons another dark wind. "Death shall be your fate!" He coughs. "Sorry, that was a cold."
MrMonster coughs from the poisonous fart... Errr... Attack of death.
Aetos shifty eyes.
MrMonster punches Aetos twice... The first being a Smash attack.
Aetos gets punched twice... "Yo that hurt!" *Yow. He punches then kicks Mr.M...*
MrMonster accepts the punch but FINALLY avoids the kick. He fires a Sword Shot and Electric Fan at Aetos...
Aetos flips backward "You're starting to hurt me now... This is going to be very close huh? I can imagine your life isn't much less then mine currently... But just in case..."
MrMonster nods, pretty beat up.
Aetos pushes you upward into the sky again, making a hand gesture to do so. "Feel the awesome power of the wind..."
MrMonster has nearly reached the limits of his endurance...
Aetos kicks MrMonster again.
MrMonster dodges the kicks and returns the favor with a Sword Shot and a Smash attack.
Aetos: "Yikes. Gahh..." *He flies into a distant wall He falls from the wall, defeated. He stands, somehow not hurt anymore...* "VERY close one huh?"
MrMonster slumps down and leans against a piece of rubble, equally beat up... "Yeah..."
Aetos walks over to his spear and picks it up... He walks back over to Mr.M, "I'll have to be going now, seeya in a bit." He leaves somewhere...
Metal Man (GM): Anyway... mission tyme.
Julian Sawyer: *Death To Statues!*
Metal Man (GM): You destroyed da statue. Then you went to the warp home. *WARP* You're back at the village. Good old Kales was waiting for you.
Julian Sawyer: "...Hi."
Kales Brando: "Hello. Have you gotten the artifact?"
Tridus: "Did we? We killed a statue with it!"
Charles Magellean will take your word for it despite not knowing what events were before and after.
MrMonster appears out of the warp, slightly disorientated. He nods after hearing Kales speak.
Charles Magellean: "I believe the correct term is 'knock down a statue'."
Julian Sawyer: "Yeah, I poked it in the head and there was this bright flash, and it was gone."
Kales Brando: "Can I please have it? I shall pay you plenty for this."
Julian Sawyer: "Here ya go." *Hands it to him*
Kales Brando: *He takes it, then passes out bags with... 10,000 coins each in them.* "Now then. You have done very well... but I have another job for you."
Aetos takes one bag from Kales "Thank you."
Julian Sawyer: "Sweet."
Digifanatic: "Boy, you're a very kind person to give us all this money."
Julian Sawyer: *Pockets it*
Charles Magellean smiles heartedly and stores the coins.
MrMonster thanks Kales. "Thank you... Already?"
Kales Brando: "Well... of course! Look around you."
MrMonster takes the coins, pockets them, and surveys the area.
Kales Brando: *Points to the now 8 feet tall stone walls, the forge...*
Julian Sawyer: "Nifty."
Kales Brando: *New buildings being built. Thanks to help from Metal, they're... log cabins. There's even a single normal looking house being built.*
Julian Sawyer: .oO(Took you long enough...)
MrMonster mutters, "I'll be working in that forge before long... Miirnalk needs to be fixed up a bit."
Kales Brando: "Your work has done well... however."
Charles Magellean: "Do we get to smack down the terrorizers that hang outside the village?"
Julian Sawyer: "...However?"
Kales Brando: "Those? No, not yet. ...The forge is missing a set of very important tools."
Charles Magellean snaps his finger in disappointment.
Julian Sawyer: "...A hammer and anvil?"
Kales Brando: "No, more advanced ones. Ones that are... magical. From the ruins!"
Julian Sawyer: "Joy..."
Kales Brando: "This job is voluntary. If you can get along without upgrading your weapons much, you don't have to go and get the tools."
Julian Sawyer: "Nah, I'll go. I need to get my gloves updated anyway..."
Garrick Fy`aar: "Safe to say I'll be going."
Kales Brando: "Now then... in that lake area, there's a trail which goes up the mountain."
MrMonster: "... It sounds like it would be for the best to go."
Charles Magellean: "So long as I do not become bored again, I am in."
Garrick Fy`aar walks up beside Kales, looking sweaty and messed up.
Kales Brando: "A legendary blacksmith came up there..."
Julian Sawyer: "Heya Garrick."
Kales Brando: "He worked and lived up there. One day, though, he dissappeared."
Garrick Fy`aar: "A legendary blacksmith, you say?"
Julian Sawyer: "Huh..."
Kales Brando: "His tools are lost up there."
Kales Brando: "If you find them, your payment will merely be some free weaponsmithing."
Kales Brando: "You can adventure around a bit if you want... I'll be busy with this staff."
Azure: "We still have to buy the parts... Aetos..."
Kales Brando: *He wanders off*
Julian Sawyer: "But still, FREE!"
Garrick Fy`aar: "...of course it'll be free, I'm doing the smithing."
Azure sighs "Give a man the word free and he'll dive into the pits of hell."
Digifanatic: "You do that, man."
Julian Sawyer: "What are we waiting for?" *Turns around and heads back into the portal to Ionic Pillar Land*
Tridus: "I shall go take a rest, however you may go ahead."
Aetos: "So, into the warp? Ok..."
Garrick Fy`aar: "Jeez... I work on that sucker for how long and he instantly thinks it's his to do with what he pleases."
MrMonster: "... I need to resupply first."
Aetos goes into the warp
Digifanatic follows Julian; he'd at least like the EXP if nothing else...
Azure: *Enters the warp.*
Garrick Fy`aar heads in as well, moving right along.
Metal Man (GM): *WARP* *WARP* *WARP* *WARP*
Charles Magellean: "Hmm... you know, on second thought, I too will remain here. I have some...'errands' to do." *He goes back to his shack.*
MrMonster goes to buy 5 Red Potions, 2 Blue Potions, and 7 Maple Syrups. He then heads into the portal.
Metal Man (GM): *WARP*
Charles Magellean puts the POW Block, Ice Bomb, and Door Opener onto the shelves for storage as well.
Metal Man (GM): You're all conveniently at the bottom of the mountain, on the far side of the lake. A winding trail leads up... the ominously tall geological feature.
Aetos: "Well, lets get to it?"
Julian Sawyer: "...Well, there's the path." *ONWARDS!*
Aetos begins walking up the trail
Digifanatic: "Sure thing, then..." *He follows the others.*
Azure: *Onward and upward.*
MrMonster unsheaths Racualk and balances the giant greatsword on his shoulder while following the others up the trail.
Metal Man (GM): The trail, at this point, is surrounded by grass. It's a bit unused; a few weeds are in it. You begin heading up the mountain; a light climb, with some nice scenery.
Aetos: "I wish I had a camera..."
Metal Man (GM): You can see the nearby dust fields and across the lake from here. You also get a good look of the ominously weird building that is leaning on the mountain.
Julian Sawyer: "That must be the place..."
Garrick Fy`aar: "...a smith's paradise."
Metal Man (GM): That building, of course, is on the bottom, near the plateau.
Garrick Fy`aar: "I bet you anything that mountain is a dormant volcano."
Metal Man (GM): You're heading up to the mountain.
Julian Sawyer: "Hope it's dormant enough..."
Metal Man (GM): You notice a variety of old volcanic formations here.
Digifanatic: "Eh, we'll see what hap--yeah, I'd say you're right."
Metal Man (GM): You reach... a bit of ruins.
Julian Sawyer: "Ruins. Fun."
Metal Man (GM): Some old buildings, old pillars, garbage everywhere. The path goes right through it. It's all old and unused.
Garrick Fy`aar: "I'm anxious to see this place... I'd like very much to get my hands on some of the stuff they have there... even the anvil and some of the more technical hammers would be of use."
MrMonster: "... You've almost got to wonder what happened to the inhabitants of all these ruins."
Julian Sawyer: "You think we can carry it all back?"
Garrick Fy`aar: "I'm sure we could."
Metal Man (GM): These ruins are mostly stone. Some bits of burnt out, useless metal lay around.
Digifanatic: "Eh, somehow we might be able to find a way."
Metal Man (GM): Do you search the ruins?
Garrick Fy`aar: "...I'm giving this place a look over. Might be something useful around here..." *He desides to give it a once over...*
Azure: "Find anything?"
MrMonster just continues on his way.
Metal Man (GM): You find an old book.
Garrick Fy`aar: "...hey hey... what have we here..."
Aetos: "Hm, Charles would have liked this."
Julian Sawyer: "I'll help." *Searches with Garrick for anything else that's nifty.*
Metal Man (GM): It is mostly muddy, and many of the pages are damaged... but the cover is... unique.
Garrick Fy`aar picks it up and reads the title...
Digifanatic takes a look at the book Garrick found.
Aetos: "What does it say Garrick?"
Metal Man (GM): It says 'S-a-i-m', at least with what you've pieced together. The lettering is all messed up, but it seems familiar.
Garrick Fy`aar: "Saim... Saim?"
Metal Man (GM): Julian finds another one.
Digifanatic: "That is odd..."
Metal Man (GM): '*messed up word* Manual'
MrMonster heads back to the others. "I take it you've found something?"
Julian Sawyer: "Found another one!"
Garrick Fy`aar flips through a few pages...
Metal Man (GM): You see ancient roman architecture in it.
Aetos searches for anything more...
Julian Sawyer: "...Great, more romans..."
Metal Man (GM): Stuff talking about structural supports.
Metal Man (GM): Aetos finds another book. It's... 'Eec Wie'
Julian Sawyer: "This thing better tell me how to take out those statues we keep encountering better..."
Digifanatic: "Maybe Atlantean? I think that might be the right area... if I remember my geography correctly."
Aetos: "Eec Wie?" *He looks through the pages*
Metal Man (GM): Aetos: You see weird diagrams of lines and boxes.
Julian Sawyer: *Looks through the book he found*
Metal Man (GM): Julian: You see various squares with wires and... stuff with letters on it.
Julian Sawyer: "..."
Metal Man (GM): You also see complex equations.
Digifanatic: "I'm gonna see what the others have." *He walks over to Aetos' book.*
Aetos: "Maybe these are some kind of... math or... manufacturing books?"
Digifanatic: "What's that one?"
Metal Man (GM): It appears these books were used for some sort of construction.
Azure: "May I see that book Aetos?"
Aetos: "Eec Wie..." *He gives it to Azure*
Digifanatic: "I have no idea about that..."
Aetos: "People like to take things I find I guess..."
Garrick Fy`aar: "...Roman... perhaps the stadium?"
Metal Man (GM): You wonder... what if you took them to the lizards later and asked them to build with some of it?
Azure: *Looks the book over a bit more trying to understand the design of it as he slowly goes through the pages.*
Garrick Fy`aar: "Let's just pocket these for now and keep moving."
Azure: "I got nothing..."
