Super Smash Quest - Story - Chapter 327: MM2 Mauling Maniacs
Date: February 23rd, 2007.
Metal Man (GM): Most of the group is on the Q.S. Seeker. Just nearby, Ricky's mech stands, imposing.
Mewtwo: "...This mission, you must remove those who you... delayed. Otherwise we're still dead meat."
Dragoshi: "...How many are left?"
Mewtwo: "All but 1, and he was replaced quickly."
Dragoshi: "...Who was the 1? And, ho-Oh, nevermind."
Mewtwo: "The soldier who told Ricky a siege would be impractical."
Mewtwo: "...Ricky himself issued a rather furious challenge to all of you, claiming you were too cowardly to fight him yourselves."
Dragoshi: "...I'd actually have to agree with that guy. I mean, a siege? Really."
Mewtwo: "It is quite obviously a trap."
Dragoshi: "Well he's a dick who tried to kill us with an entire damn army."
Digifanatic: "We're not cowards. We're intelligent."
Mewtwo: "However... what it is is beyond me. He has a mecha. A strong mecha, but you've fought worse before."
Darkdata: *Nods in agreement with Digi.*
Dragoshi: "So, he's pretty much a gaw damn hypocrite that's soon to be SOUP."
Mewtwo: "I'd be careful if I were you... but if you insist, you can fight him." He opens a warp.
Digifanatic: "Well, what else can we do? Join up with Alexia and Douglas' doings at the Emerald?"
Dragoshi: "...Speaking of which... Should I go with 'Cream of Ricky' or-No. I wasn't insinuating that. I meant AFTER he gets out of that mech."
Mewtwo: "Not really, they're... inaccessible via warp for unknown reasons."
Mewtwo: "If you wish, you may stay here and wait instead... that's boring, though. Right?"
Dragoshi: .oO(Seriously, though...'Cream of Ricky' or 'New Genetia Clam Ricky'? Hmmm...) "It'd give us time to plan."
Digifanatic: "Yeah, it is boring..."
Mewtwo: "It would also give them time to plan. I'm unsure how much we could do to them from here."
Dragoshi: "Well, what's a safe distance?"
Mewtwo: "The distance of the chasm is about 500 feet across. The soil is REALLY volatile. Our ship apparently did something bad to it... here's the bad part."
Dragoshi: "...Woah. That IS volatile. ...Zuh?"
Mewtwo: "If they discover it is as volatile as we showed, they could shoot a rocket across and hit the soil right under us. Then we and the ship would go falling on down..."
Digifanatic: .oO(And we're screwed...)
Mewtwo: "So... what'll it be?"
Metal Man (GM): Mewtwo glances around, wondering why he hasn't heard Julian's loud yelling yet.
Digifanatic: "Yeah, where is everyone?"
Glyph peeks around the door again.
Traon: "I'm just keeping my mouth shut... I'm stumped on what we should do..."
Digifanatic: "Yeah... screwed either way."
Mewtwo: "We shouldn't be stumped for long... we don't have that kind of time."
Scott is still looking annoyed from something.
Metal Man (GM): Mewtwo pokes Julian with a stick.
Traon: "You think the soil is volatile where the army stands?"
Metal Man (GM): Then SIMBER pokes Julian with a stick.
Glyph peeks around the door further.
Julian: *What part of 'Don't Antagonize Julian While He's Sleeping' are those people not getting here?*
Mewtwo: "Perhaps, but they are mobile."
Roxy: *Sits next to Scott.*
Glyph peeks around the door so far if it were to move he would fall down.
Mewtwo: "Again, you could fight Ricky. He doesn't seem so powerful..."
Traon looks over at Glyph. "Get in here you hoot..."
Digifanatic: "It's just the rest of the army?"
Glyph: *Hop falls down.*
Dragoshi: "Yea... But, he had these guns... That could kill people near instantaneously... I mean, even if we do destroy the mech there's those gaw damn guns... But, still... Not much time."
Mewtwo: "If they have no leader, they are likely to not..."
Digifanatic: "Yeah... and Darkdata can steal it."
Dragoshi: "..." *AHEM.*
Traon: "I still say we just warp into their base base and counter attack them..."
Digifanatic: "Nah, I'm just playing with your mind, but hey, it was an interesting scenario last time it happened."
Dragoshi: "Did you forget he's not the only one that could steal things?"
Digifanatic: "No. He's just the first name that popped in my mind."
Scott: "Can we come up with ideas aside from 'suicide' ones?"
Mewtwo: "You could wake up Julian."
Darkdata: *Tilts head down to stop them from noticing his smile.*
Traon: "I nominate Dragoshi to do the waking."
Scott: If we counterattack then we're boned. If we don't do anything, we're boned. We need better ideas."
Digifanatic: "Well, we've faced crazier opponents."
Scott: "Hell's Bells..."
Mewtwo: "Perhaps optimism in our approach is best."
Scott plays a SUPER loud chord intended to wake up Julian.
Digifanatic: "If Mewtwo's correct in that Ricky isn't that that strong..."
Glyph: [Hop] "Mr. Gibson, sir?"
Digifanatic: "If we get enough guys on the field, we could stand a chance."
Glyph: [Hop] "I had a funny thought... wouldn't... waking up the guy who says not to mess with him be bad?"
Digifanatic: "And that's why I never do."
Mewtwo: "There's worse things than being woken up."
Scott: "It's Scott, not 'Mr. Gibson, sir'...for future reference."
SIMBER: "Incoming communication---"
Dragoshi: "...Put it through" *Groans.*
Metal Man (GM): *Blasting imperial music plays throughout the ship.*
Metal Man (GM): Ricky's face appears on screens across the ship.
Scott: "I seriously want to give them a musical taste of their own meds."
Ricky Koopa: "Surrender now, or die! We're only beginning to fun! Die! Die! Really!"
Glyph: [Leviathan] "I like this guy."
Dragoshi: "...beginning to fun?"
Scott: "Shut it."
Darkdata: "You know, since my spells work through sound, I wonder if I can send it through communications..."
Dragoshi: "What the ...hell, soup dish?"
Traon: "Soup? Where?"
Glyph: [Hop] "I like soup."
Digifanatic: "Enough with the soup, please..."
Ricky Koopa: "Now... as we build a massive cannon to destroy you, you must be informed that you are complete cowards!"
Glyph: [Hop] "What a coincidence! We were just building a massive cannon to destroy you!"
Ricky Koopa: "I offer you a chance to fight me in person, and what do you do? You sleep? And argue? And sit around drinking tea like little girls?"
Scott: "How 'bout I come over there and rip your trachea out through your nostril?"
Ricky Koopa: "Ha ha ha. You lack the intelligence to build massive death cannons! The MM2 will reign supreme!"
Glyph: [Hop] "Can we borrow yours? Ours isn't going very well, no."
Traon: "We're cowards? We aren't the ones coming after you with a army because we are weak by ourselves." *He smirks.*
Ricky Koopa: "Now... go ahead and continue sleeping! We'll just be that much more ready!"
Metal Man (GM): It cuts out.
Glyph: [Hop] "Sounds like a plan!"
Scott: "... He's provoking us into an attack."
Darkdata: "So... first things first" *Casts mute on Hop.*
Scott: "But we don't really seem to have much choice, do we?"
Digifanatic: "Nice one Traon."
Glyph: [Hop] "..."
Mewtwo: "I'm not sure. Can you come up with a better idea?"
Digifanatic: "Well, we're not going with the cannon... we can't access the Emerald."
Dragoshi: "...Dammit, man. We're technically scraping at the bottom of the barrel at this point. ...No, wait."
Scott: "All we've got goin' for us is our brute strength."
Dragoshi: "I think we've just THROWN AWAY the damn barrel at this point."
Glyph: [Hop] "...?"
Mewtwo: "Seems you forgot to put your powers in any other place... heh heh heh. I have a plan, but it involves someone who doesn't care if things are traps."
Traon: "All we can do is pray that Alexia and whats his face succeeds."
Darkdata: "... well let us look at it this way. If we sneak in and disable the cannon (haha like that ever works) we may have a chance."
Glyph: *Hop raises his hand enthusiastically.*
Mewtwo: "...Yes! The perfect volunteer!"
Glyph: *Hop jumps up and down.*
Mewtwo: "Hop... awaken Julian!"
Scott: "Suicide mission!"
Dragoshi: "Who's the person that doesn't care if things are tra-Oh, damn."
Darkdata: *Demute Hop.*
Dragoshi: *Pulls out... A mech trumpet? ...Right. Hands it to Hop.* "Use this."
Mewtwo: "I will give you... uh... 5,000 coins if you wake him up."
Glyph: [Hop] "Where's he at now?"
Digifanatic: "Hop, don't listen to him!"
Mewtwo: "In his room."
Scott: "Have fun, Hop."
Dragoshi: "Oh, shut up, Digi."
Metal Man (GM): Mewtwo breaks out his heftier trumpet.
Glyph: *Hop runs over in an arbitrary direction which may or may not be towards Julian's room.*
Julian: "...Swear to god if you blow that goddamn thing that giant mech outside gonna be the LEAST of yo' worries." *Psyche.*
Digifanatic: "I don't need our fellow people here getting beat up by that guy..."
Julian's been on the bridge the entire time. 'Cept sleeping. But not REALLY. :D
Glyph: *Hop is gone.*
Mewtwo: "...Well, the important part is that you are here. Although Hop is likely to awaken some other people..."
Metal Man (GM): Hop finds a room.
Glyph: *Hop looks.*
Metal Man (GM): In fact, there is a person sleeping in the room which reminds him of Julian.
Glyph: *Hop first looks through the room for any potions, treasure chests, or secret passages. He has forgotten what he was here to do. He pokes the person who appears to be sleeping.*
Metal Man (GM): Nope... wait... there's a belt here. It's shiny.
Dragoshi: "...I just hope he doesn't use the trumpet."
Glyph: [Hop] "Heeey, mister, or missus, why am I here again?"
Julian: "You people's a buncha idiots, y'know that? First thing you do when you find a person sleepin' 'Oh let's wake him up!' Let me have my fuckin' rest! ...Anyway, what's the word?"
Glyph: *Hop in the meantime puts the belt on his head.*
Mewtwo: "If we don't act soon the entire ship will fall into a deep pit and explode."
Scott: "I've been asking that last question but never got an answer..."
Mewtwo: "Which would include you, asleep or not."
Julian: "Can't this ship y'know, FLY?"
Dragoshi: "It doesn't have the energy."
Mewtwo: "We don't have enough energy supplies."
Traon: "SIMBER can you do me a favor and turn on the ship wide comms? I have an idea that will wake up anyone on this ship if they are asleep." *He gets a wide grin on his face as he pulls out his Annoying Bell.*
SIMBER: "PA open."
Digifanatic: "Traon, what are you..."
Julian: "...So you're tellin' me that we came out here knowin' full well we couldn't get back to Nintendus?"
Scott: "Fine, let's go get our asses killed then... better than sitting around here with a fuckin' thumb in my ass!"
Mewtwo: "It was assumed we'd find an energy source... and there are energy sources around..."
Traon: *and let the Dinging begin! Ding... ding... ding... DING!!!*
Mewtwo: "But Aetos and Alexia are busy with that."
Digifanatic: "Alright, so what shall we do? Are we going to fight Ricky or--TRAON STOP IT!"
Metal Man (GM): *Entire ship dings.*
Julian: "Jee-zus... So what the hell is goin' on?"
Mewtwo: "Ricky's armor is stationed outside and wishes to destroy us."
Digifanatic: "If that's loud enough, we're really looking for attention... should we just go?"
Mewtwo: "He's challenged you all to fight his mech."
Julian: "...So let's go kick his ass."
Digifanatic: "Sounds good."
Julian: "Why the hell we waitin' around for?"
Scott: "We're sittin' here just talking about what we're gonna do instead of actually doing anything. Let's fuckin' go already!!"
Mewtwo: "...I don't know."
Digifanatic: "There ya go!"
Mewtwo: "Perhaps I like intrigue."
Scott: "Warp me!"
Traon stops dining and puts the bell away. "I'm game... lets be off to fight mister mecha."
Digifanatic: *waits for the warp as he doesn't seem to notice it's already there.*
Mewtwo: "The warp has been sitting here for quite a while."
Scott: "Now would be--...I knew that."
Metal Man (GM): He points to the now dusty energy circle to his left.
Julian: "Who the fuck put ants in Scott's pants?"
Dragoshi: "..." *Readies machinegun, and a charge...* "...I have no idea, and I really don't care right now."
Scott: "Just go dammit!"
Glyph: *Hop at about this time should be taking the items in the room he was in and building some sort of elaborate pulley contraption.*
Scott jumps in.
Digifanatic: "Alright, let's hit it before anything else becomes the topic of an argument..." *heads for the warp.*
Roxy: *looks toward Julian and does as best a shrug as she can.*
Metal Man (GM): Hop uses the belt, a cube, and a gun to create a strange Rube Goldberg device.
Traon heads into the warp as well.
Roxy: *then she enters the warp.*
Dragoshi: "..." *Charging up... When it's ready, he enters zah warupo.*
Glyph: *Hop created a Cube-flail!*
Julian: "The fuck is his problem..." *Julian grabs a breathing mask and heads into the warp.*
Digifanatic: *mask, duh!*
Scott comes back and grabs a mask... "My bad..."
Digifanatic: *puts it on.*
Dragoshi: *...Good thing Drag's had a breathing mask on since the beginning of this whole damn travesty.*
Metal Man (GM): MEANWHILE... In the Ultimate Emerald chamber room, Aetos and E Li Three appear.
Aetos winces. "Alexia?"
E Li Three: "At last! I am free after 10,000 beers! Now it is time to take over smurfs!"
Aetos: "Emerald of Balance... if nothing else, could you fix that little problem of his?"
Metal Man (GM): Alexia seems to be asleep for the moment. E Li Three takes out a marker and draws on her face.
E Li Three: "A mustache there... a stitch there... then there's possibly a Maverick Symbol there... yes! A watch belongs there!"
Emerald: "...This does not make any sense. He fulfills the requirements, but he also is completely insane."
Douglas: "You can cure insanity, can't you?..."
Emerald: "...I swear the person I wanted looked like this."
Metal Man (GM): He shows an image of Locos.
Emerald: "Instead you have this."
Metal Man (GM): He shows an image of E Li Three biting a hole in drywall.
Emerald: "...I guess I can work with this... but you'll have to put up with him. Not me."
Douglas frowns. "Alright..."
E Li Three: *picks up a rock and gasps.* "I have found the Dark Temple! I must drink some Coal Cola!"
Douglas: "Can I at least keep him from talking?"
E Li Three: *Turns to the emerald.* "Clap on!" *clap clap.* "Clap off!" *Clap clap.* "...Hey... this thing is broken..." *Claps some more.*
Metal Man (GM): Alexia awakens, with a mustache, a stitch, a Maverick Symbol, and a watch drawn on her face. E Li Three is clapping at the Ultimate Emerald, and Douglass is frowning.
Alexia: "Nrrgh... E Li?"
E Li Three: "My countrymen, we must drink car grease!"
Alexia rubs the tiredness out of her eyes. Amazingly, she's still in that same kneeling position. "...E Li, get out."
E Li Three: "But I got an N64. I can't get out anymore. I'm stuck."
Douglas: "Um... no, Alexia. He's forced to help us."
E Li Three: *Salutes Aetos.* "Now, I see you wish to use this thing's power, right?"
Douglas frowns. "Only in order to survive this attack from the MM2, at least."
E Li Three: "Then you must past... THE ULTIMATE TEST OF INSANITY."
Metal Man (GM): He points at Alexia.
E Li Three: "You must... dye her hair green. I wish I had my props... I could make some insane ones..."
Alexia: .oO(...Why is it that all I want to do lately is scream?)
E Li Three: "Because you want some ice cream."
Douglas: "Do we have any dye?"
E Li Three: "...Hm..."
Alexia groans as she stands up slowly, getting the cramps out of her legs.
E Li Three: "That is a pickle. Wait... we need a pickle!"
Alexia: *muttering.* "And the world just got a little crueler..."
E Li Three: "Now... do you know of any cucumber fields on this planet? Hm... wait... I have an idea."
Metal Man (GM): He runs up to the emerald.
E Li Three: "JUMANJI!!!!!"
Emerald: "...I think you're lost somewhere... somewhere not here."
E Li Three: "...That worked the last time."
Douglas: "Yeah. Can I silence him, then??"
E Li Three: "...Okay... uh... wait!" *Turns to Douglas.* "Dogula. Get me a cell phone!"
Alexia: "Silence him, silence him NOWWWWWW!"
E Li Three: "Or perhaps a smash dex."
Douglas winces. "I've got a spear."
E Li Three: "Then I shall use it. I must see it, Dogula!"
Emerald: "I would silence him, but he's more of a test than any I can make."
Douglas reveals the spear from his back, which has a few oddly-placed attachments... including a speaker duct-taped to it.
Emerald: "Only balanced people can take his insanity and not also go insane."
Douglas hands him Talon.
Metal Man (GM): He takes it, then he presses a few buttons.
E Li Three: "Mission control! We have a problem! We are out of chocolate flavored shoe spray!"
Metal Man (GM): *Static.*
Douglas scratches his head.
E Li Three: "Hm..." *Messes with the buttons again.* "Ah. Here we go."
Metal Man (GM): He puts on his top hat. And speaks in a British accent.
E Li Three: "I am Lord Douglas, and I request Green Dye #32. Please bill my friend Julian. You don't say? Well, I don't care that it costs 2 million coins to ship. Send it to me now."
E Li Three: "Yes, my name is Lord Douglas. No, I haven't eaten mushrooms lately. ...Thank you." *He turns it off.*
Metal Man (GM): *WARP* A big vase of green dye appears.
E Li Three: "Hm... now... you must apply it to her hair without being ripped into shreds."
Douglas sweatdrops, and goes to pick up the vase of dye.
E Li Three: "White dragons are known for their icy breath, after all. And they also eat people."
Douglas: "Um... Ok, Alexia..." *He walks over to her.*
E Li Three: "Like this." *He poses and makes claw-like noises with his hands.* "Rawr! Rawr! Zooom! Zoom zoom! Car insurance!"
Alexia just watches this with half-open eyes, not saying a word.
Douglas: "Now, E Li... could you repeat the test to me again?"
E Li Three: "Dye her hair entirely green."
Douglas: "Alexia's hair? The Alexia right there?" *Points to her.*
E Li Three: "Yes. That one. Not the one behind her."
Douglas nods and goes up to her.
E Li Three: "That one is made of old books."
Douglas looks behind Alexia, just in case...
Metal Man (GM): Douglas sees no one. E Li Three seems to hallucinate a lot.
Douglas sighs, and lightly pours some green dye all over Alexia's head.
E Li Three: "Now... to pass the time while you do that." He takes out a thousand blank note cards, and eats them one by one.
Douglas stops. "Wait, better idea. "Alexia, dip your head into this vase. "
Alexia: "..." *She does so silently.*
E Li Three: "Mmm... cardboard."
Metal Man (GM): The vase sticks to Alexia's head. The dye pours all over her... dying all of her green.
Alexia: *Still not saying a word.*
E Li Three: *Finishes eating his 480th card (he was guzzling them) as Alexia has turned green and has a vase stuck to her head.* "Good work! I knew the 2 million coins were worth it. Now... to use the emerald. Veru Nictu Jamabo Zooboomafu Grondo Orlando Zodius ShoePolishmondo!"
Metal Man (GM): His hat catches on fire.
E Li Three: "...Wrong spell."
Metal Man (GM): He blows out the fire, then takes out a giant hammer.
E Li Three: "This shall do."
Metal Man (GM): He runs up to the emerald! Runs! Then he swings! And... Lightly taps the emerald. Repeatedly. The sound of glass being tapped is heard. It soon reverberates. He takes the hammer away and the room is filled with energy waves.
E Li Three: "So. We have 1% of its full power. Who do you wish to kill today?"
Douglas: "...The MM2 Army attacking the Quester's ship on this planet...?"
E Li Three: "Mmmhmm... I always hated the Medical Maniacs 2. Much worse than the Medical Mecchaahahaaha... Moook. Quester ship? Hm. I don't remember rock bands attacking space ships."
Douglas: "No no. Magellean Military 2."
E Li Three: "Oh. Right. ...It has been done. ...Unfortunately it will happen in the future."
Douglas: "How about you do it now?"
E Li Three: "You wish to go somewhere now?"
Douglas: "Or use this energy to help energize the Quester ship."
E Li Three: "Oh, no, this isn't enough power to energize a cup holder. It does have some mystical properties that will come in handy when it appears."
Douglas: "Then will you come with me and Alexia?"
E Li Three: "I believe you wish to watch it, yes? Or perhaps you must watch it." *He takes out a watch.* "Yes I will, sir man sir Manchu."
Metal Man (GM): He opens a door out of thin air. It opens up, and Wily runs out.
Wily: "The moon is exploding! We must stop this!"
Douglas: "Anyways." *Grabs his spear from E Li...* "Um... Wait... Moon? The Lunarian Moon!?"
E Li Three: "Wrong door." *He takes out a butterfly net and hits Wily with it, getting it stuck on his head.* "You, sir, are a common flying printer!"
Wily: "...What? No. The moon is ex---" *Door sucks him in.*
E Li Three: "...Okay... this one should work." *Opens another one and walks through.*
Douglas rubs his head... He guides Alexia into it. Then he quickly salutes the Ultimate Emerald. "Be seein' ya."
Alexia just follows, still not saying a word.
Douglas walks through.
Metal Man (GM): MEANWHILE... The Questers appear nearby the army... But! *WARP.* A man wearing a metallic overcoat and jeans made of old boxes and a backwards green cowboy hat, Douglas, and a green monster with a vase for a head appear!
Digifanatic: "Douglas, WHO is it that you found?"
Julian: "...The fuck is goin' on NOW?"
???: "Halt, ice cream men! It is I, the astral destroyer!"
Dragoshi: "...What the FUCK?" *Dexes the monster... thing... While he has a charge up... From before he was on the Seeker.*
Traon: "Hello Douglas... Who the hell are these two, and where is Alexia?"
Dex: "...It appears to be some sort of hulking... green thing."
Douglas: "Um. New friends."
Digifanatic: "I'm not sure if I should believe it, Doug."
???: "We come... to play battleship!"
Douglas: "Alexia is around..."
Scott: "New friends?"
Dragoshi: "...Think it's a po-NO. Too easy."
???: "Have you eaten monkeys today?"
Scott: "If you're double crossin' us then you're gonna wish you blew your own head off before we get done with you."
Douglas: "Anyways, this guy here should be able to help us, eventually." *Points to E Li.*
Dragoshi: "...No. But, I plan on having Cream of Ricky. Wanna join me after this is over?"
???: "I shall help you buy shoe insurance. ...My bell senses are tingling!"
Traon just stands there... Dumbfounded.
Metal Man (GM): He points at Traon.
Julian: "...So are we gonna stand around here, talkin' up how Douglas likely screwed up again, or we gonna beat the hell outta a mech?"
Douglas: "No, no. Remember what we said? You've got to help us beat the MM2."
???: "Ding! Ding! Ding! Ding!"
Dragoshi: "...Bell senses?"
???2: "Yes, the Medical Mecchania!"
Alexia: *thinking.* "Someone kill me. Kill me now."
Julian: "Fuck this." *keeps on walkin'.*
Scott: "MEDICAL MECCHANICA?!?!?"
Douglas: "Who are you?!"
Dragoshi: "No, the Magellean Military!"
Digifanatic: "Julian, you--Scott, he's a bit twisted.":
Scott grabs the dude.
Douglas looks at ???2!
Digifanatic: "I don't think he means it."
Scott: "What about the Medical Mechannica?!"
Metal Man (GM): It was ??? projecting his voice!
Garrick: "...oh, shit."
???: "...The hulking green monster is one of them."
Douglas turned to ???2 but found no one. He mutters.
???: "And... it wishes to steal your supply of sodium."
Douglas: "Ok. ENOUGH!"
Scott: "Those fuckin' mechanized bastards... They must've followed me."
Dragoshi: "...Sod this." @_@ *Has a damn flame blast charge readied.*
Douglas bashes Alexia's vase-head, so it might break.
Traon: "Hide any annoying object..." *He puts his hand over the pocket where he keeps the Annoying Bell.*
???: "Yes... they now have machines made of pottery..."
Julian: "HEY! WE GOT BIGGER PROBLEMS TO DEAL WITH THAN CRAZY PEOPLE! LIKE CRAZY PEOPLE THAT WANNA KILL US!"
Dragoshi: "Can we just move on? This is getting more and more inane."
???: "Machines undetectable to metal detectors!"
Garrick: "I agree with Julian. Let's take care of what we have to deal with now."
Digifanatic: "Yes. Please... thank you."
Julian called that back as he walked past the massive clusterfuck of Questers and Friends.
Dragoshi: *Starts muttering in draconic, pissed off and agitated, following in Julian's direction.*
Digifanatic: *moves on with Jules.*
Traon: "I'm with Julian on this one..." he follows after to get the job done.
Douglas follows them. .oO(Wait. Where are we goin no-- What happened to the ground!?)
Scott: "Don't ever screw around callin' shit Medical Mechannica unless you mean it." *Scott storms off with Roxy in tail.*
???: *Suddenly turns around, dragging Scott with him as he follows Julian.* "Can I be your sidekick? I could be... Angry Man!"
Alexia just kind of stands there.
Scott breaks free and dusts off. "No."
Douglas sighs and goes back to Alexia. "C'mon, Alexia."
Digifanatic: "Usually, I don't get extremely angry... but this is just pushing me a little bit."
Douglas guides her along.
Julian takes out a Baseball Bat then in preparation for kicking ass.
???: "Together we shall free the universe from potatoes!"
Garrick: "God, SHUT UP!"
???: "Yes. God does need to shut up."
Digifanatic: "Douglas, would it be a wise decision if Darkdata Muted him?"
Scott moves ahead to keep from beating a potential ally senseless.
Metal Man (GM): He shakes his fist at the sky.
Dragoshi: "..." .oO(I'd ask who the crazy guy is, but I have a feeling this'll lead to a megaton headache.)
Douglas: "Oh, I can do it, if you want. But we might need him to talk."
Traon stops... reaches into his pocket... pulls out his walnut... turns around... and then chucks the nut at E Li Three.
Metal Man (GM): The Questers are making their way there as ??? mouths off.
Digifanatic: "Yeah, but will it impede our progress?"
Julian: "Shut 'em the fuck up fo' NOW. He's worse than Drago."
Douglas: "I mean... he SOMETIMES does point out very good things."
???: "Avast! A fine relic!"
Metal Man (GM): He picks up the nut and chews on it.
Dragoshi: *GLARES at Julian.*
???: "This has a core of gold!"
Alexia continues standing there silently.
Douglas nudges Alexia. "Come on!"
Digifanatic walks over to Alexia (well, the green figure): "Are you alright?"
Dragoshi: "..." *Not a smart idea to say that about a guy who has a gaw damn charge up, AND a headache from friggin' stupidity.*
Metal Man (GM): He opens the nut and chucks a golden sphere to Traon.
Digifanatic: *waits for a response before moving back forward.*
Traon then continues on with Julian and company.
Garrick: *growls and keeps walking.*
Alexia: "I am far from alright."
???: "I detect... something expensive!" *Runs ahead, towards the mech with the others.*
Digifanatic: "Oh, thank goodness that's your voice."
Traon is hit by the golden sphere and falls over... He gets up and picks up the golden sphere... "If this is real... It's mine now and I'm sellin' it..."
Metal Man (GM): It is real. And valuable.
Traon pockets it and moves on.
Douglas grabs a rock and chips at the vase on Alexia's head.
Metal Man (GM): The group finally reaches the mecha.
Douglas shrugs, and pushes Alexia along.
Metal Man (GM): Several of the soldiers see Alexia.
Soldier2: "It's a monster! Ahhhhh!!!"
Soldier3: "Save us, invincible leader!"
Metal Man (GM): The soldiers run screaming from Alexia.
???: "Yes! My strategy worked!"
Dragoshi: "..." .oO(I find this to be stupidly amusing.)
???: "Morons in suits fear people with vases on their head!"
Digifanatic: "Either that or you just got lucky..."
Traon: "..." .oO(I am lost now... This green thing is scaring them all and I have no idea who it might...)
Julian: "Jus' stop talkin'..."
???: "You must believe in the heart of the ice cream, Digi."
Dragoshi: "Apparently so." *Charge up, friggin' agitated... Machinegun ready... Yea. He's prepared.* "..." *And, he sighs.*
Metal Man (GM): As they flee, Ricky walks forward, with the tanks.
Traon draws his weapon with a blank look on his face.
Digifanatic wishes he could yell out something, but for him, rage and vulgarity is not an option for the guy...
Ricky Koopa: "So, you're finally here... and what is this here?"
Dragoshi: "...And you say we're cowards. Really. Tanks? What kind of-Grah. FUCK IT."
Metal Man (GM): He looks at Alexia and bursts out laughing.
Julian: "This here's a baseball bat. Guess where it's goin'." *Taps it menacingly into his palm.*
Ricky Koopa: "THIS is the fiendish beast from the Northwest?"
Scott: "Shut the fuck up!"
Dragoshi: "Hey, you! SOUP DISH! LET'S END THIS STUPIDITY!"
Ricky Koopa: "My soldiers must really be dumb... dumber than you. Shut up? Not when I have this!"
Traon: "Thanks... Wait, hey shut up!"
Dragoshi: "Actually, we're intelligent, and you're a fuckup."
Metal Man (GM): He cranks up his speakers, which play imperial music.
Garrick: "Ricky, shut UP already! No more talking! Let's just fight already!"
Ricky Koopa: "All hail Ricky, leader of the MM2!"
Dragoshi: "Oh, question."
???: "I hail you."
Metal Man (GM): It begins hailing.
Julian: "You like hearin' yo'self talk, huh? Let's fix that."
Scott: "I'm done talking..."
Julian: "What the fu-HAIL?"
Garrick: "...fuck it." *draws the M-150 and BLASTS him.*
Scott leaps at Ricky brandishing his SG and Moderne!
Julian: *Tiny balls of ice from the sky! They sting! Oh no!*
Dragoshi: "Yes, le-..."
Metal Man (GM): Garrick hits the mech...
Dragoshi: "..." .oO(Man, this has degenerated into retardation.)
Traon: "Dragoshi, while my mentality lasts, I think this world has gone completely... You know what... You probably know this already." *He shuts up.*
Metal Man (GM): It is a 18-foot mecha made of reinforced titanium. It is painted red and black, the traditional Smithy empire colors.
Dragoshi: "...Yeaaa... haven't seen batfuck insanity like THIS in a decent while."
Metal Man (GM): It is partially hunched forward and has short legs, with long arms.
Digifanatic: "You know what, Drag? You're right."
Metal Man (GM): It has a somewhat long neck (2 feet), with a bugeyed cockpit, through which one can barely see Ricky. The arms have three fingers and one thumb, in claw mode. On the back is a large box attached to it.
Dragoshi: "Then again-...no." .oO('Cause, seriously, this is the LEAST of my insanity-related worries... I think.) @_@
Julian: *Looks for the head.*
Metal Man (GM): It's the way 16 feet up, attached to the 2 foot long neck.
Julian: *Better idea. He dexes the whole damn thing to find a weak point.*
Dex: "Weak points detected. Neck, legs, and arms. Possibly the back. It has limited health and appears somewhat cheaply made."
Digifanatic: "I'm curious about that box..."
Dragoshi: .oO(...Hmm... Aim for the legs and arms first...)
Julian: *Huzzah! Julian winds up... and delays! Team Attack be in the works, yo. Julian calls for a Team Huddle!*
Digifanatic: *enters the huddle.*
Garrick: *does as well.*
Dragoshi: *Srsly, though. Had a charge goin' on since the time at the Seeker...*
Traon: I'm goin to aim for the legs for now...
Dragoshi: *That's nothin'...Drag charges it up to full... AND DELAYS! How Deathalicious!* :D
Douglas shoots off four small darts of air at the mech's left leg, and ends turn.
Metal Man (GM): Hit hit hit crit.
Digifanatic goes to leap towards the torso of this sucker...
Metal Man (GM): Digi moves 2 feet.
Digifanatic decides that all he can for now to get to the torso is a pair of Aerial Strikes... first gets him to 4 feet above the ground, the second, 6.
Metal Man (GM): Hits him with both.
Scott is over in el huddle.
Julian appears to be gesturing wildly in the huddle. Good thing he set down the bat.
Darkdata: "Rise oh elements, live to fight, mix together forum your might. Ice, earth come alive. Living element Darksong."
Metal Man (GM): An elemental made of ice appears.
Darkdata: "Ice stand on the side for now."
Metal Man (GM): It still works.
Darkdata: *Is weaker and more tired looking.*
Garrick: *Jackknife on two, jackknife on two, BREAK.*
Julian: "A'ight, everyone clear?"
Garrick: "Let's do it."
Scott grins evilly listening in on the huddle and slings his SG and Moderne and whips out... his big bad and Azureglo Blue Rickenbacker 4001 BASS guitar!!
Digifanatic: "Ooh, haven't seen that one in a while..."
Traon: "Alrighty... Lets try this..." *He starts off by jumping into the air with all his might in his legs to see how high he can get...*
Julian: "Let's show this muthafucka we mean business." *Julian picks up his Bat.* "Break!" *Julian breaks up the huddle and gets into position near the Left leg.*
Ricky Koopa: "You will never beat me!"
Scott sprints into position next to the mech's right leg!
Digifanatic: "Rick... ya gotta stop using that kind of verb tense."
Dragoshi: "...Yea. It makes you look more like a dumbass..."
Garrick: "God, would you just HIT him already!"
Julian winds up... "Wreck 'em!" He gets behind the Mecha's Leg and tries to blow off its knee with a Charged Up Baseball Bat!
Metal Man (GM): Traon leaps up about 8 feet with that.
Julian: *TEAM ATTACK GOGOGO.*
Scott: "You picked the wrong day to... PISS ME OFF!!!" Scott growls as his bass charges with his strength... 1...2... 3...times and he swings!! BLAMMO!!!
Metal Man (GM): Hit. Hit.
Traon whirls around and launches his crimson wave at the right arm.
Julian: *Damages the Mecha's Left Leg.*
Metal Man (GM): The Questers begin hitting the mecha.
Dragoshi: "After this stupidity is over, I am gonna make CREAM OF RICKY out of you!" *Drag aims the almighty machinegun o' DEWMDEWMDEWM at the left and fires out a massive blast of flame at it!*
Traon drops down to the ground.
Garrick: *waits for the attacks from Julian and Scott send the thing on it's knees before unloading a rapid fire series of shots from his P-90 at the thing's right arm, now that it comes down into range.*
Metal Man (GM): All hit. The mecha is heavily damaged. By all rights, it should explode. In fact, it nearly does... but then it glows blue. Ricky (and the mecha, in turn) holds up his hands in fists, and a bunch of crazy runic symbols appear on it.
Dragoshi: "...A magic mech?"
Ricky Koopa: "You have power... but did you really think I would fight you on your own terms?"
Ricky Koopa: "RRRAAAAAAARGH!!!!!!!!!"
Digifanatic: *drops his left arm and the hand turns into a fist...* "Oh great..."
Dragoshi: "Hmhph. I am not amused."
Metal Man (GM): The mecha suddenly floats off of the ground, the damage to it healing miraculously.
Dragoshi: "...Oh, you are REALLY fucking asking for it."
Ricky Koopa: "I know of a power you do not... High Exaltation!"
Julian: "...Can't believe I wasted a Bat on that." *Julian drops the Bat handle and... waits for it to do something.*
Metal Man (GM): The attacks you used against him are concentrated into a sphere in the mech's hands.
Dragoshi: "And, I can't believe I just wasted a c-... Tell me."
Metal Man (GM): It shakes violently... as he concentrates harder than the Questers have seen anyone else before.
Dragoshi: "He is SO not doing what I THINK he's doing."
Scott: "Double shit!"
Julian: "...Y'know, if this kinda shit keeps happenin' when we work together, maybe Teamwork ain't all it's cracked up to be."
Ricky Koopa: "This... is the secret Smithy held from you... for so long... so that some one like I... may succeed! HYAAAAAAAH!!!!"
Dragoshi: "...Nah. Our enemies are just cheapasses."
Traon: .oO("This is bloody great!" 'Then let me out then!' "By god I would if I knew how, now shut up!") *He gets a look of anger on his face as he watches this, and his eyes have that blood red look that Dragoshi might have seen before.*
Garrick: *quickly tries to scan what is going on...*
Metal Man (GM): The ball powers up, then... completely explodes, threatening everyone with thousands of beams of energy.
Digifanatic: "No, no, no, Julian, it's fine... our target who's this insane..."
Dragoshi: *...Odamn. Bah. What the hell.*
Julian: "It happens every fuckin' TIME." *Wooha!* *Hurray!*
Scott kicks the heel of his right shoe and out pops... a toothpick?
Metal Man (GM): The mech lands back on the ground. He laughs as it powers up fully.
Ricky Koopa: "As long as I have the High Exaltation, you cannot defeat me."
Digifanatic: *But that only does about half about his health!* "Eh... it can be dealt with for now..."
???: "An excellent note. However, it is about time your extra-dimensional powers were jammed."
Metal Man (GM): The Ultimate Emerald's energy rains down from above, causing the blue energy to cease.
Scott: "The hell?!"
???: "...What? You didn't think I'd sit around and let him destroy you, would you?"
Julian: "A'ight, now that's outta the way..."
???: "I am a practitioner in High Exaltation too."
Traon: "I'm not complaining."
Julian: *Punches fist into palm. Menacingly!* "Let's try that again."
Ricky Koopa: "...Smithy's secret has been betrayed? I'll get you, you little moron!"
Scott: "Let's return the ass kicking again... slowly this time. I'm gonna enjoy ripping him apart piece by piece."
Julian: "You people's a buncha sadists, y'know that?"
Metal Man (GM): Some residual energy remains in the mech. It is likely to take another beating before it explodes.
Darkdata: "Well things seemed to have turned a bit."
Dragoshi: "...Well... I'll try and kill the hell out of the left arm. Yea. ...Or the legs. Whichever seems less annoying at this point."
Metal Man (GM): The mech threateningly opens and closes its claws, as Ricky watches the Questers menacingly.
Julian starts us off by grabbing his fedora, extending the blade around the brim, then winging it towards the Right Leg as he dashes towards the Left and tries to beat it to death! Figuratively!
Metal Man (GM): Hit hit hit miss.
Dragoshi: *Lets out some sort of angry-sounding, somewhat fucked up sounding air hiss at Ricky.*
Julian's Fedora flies back to him as he finishes his run on the Left Leg. He catches it, places it back upon his head, and beats feet back to the Quester lines.
Ricky Koopa: "Hmph. Even with a fraction of my power I shall grind you into dust."
Metal Man (GM): The mech is 2 feet away.
Dragoshi: "...Oh, really?" *Drag mutters under his breath, walks 1 foot forward, and...*
Darkdata: "So guys, I know you normally don't trust my cooking, but how would feel about turtle soup? Or baked turtle? Stir-Fry?"
Dragoshi: "HEY. I suggested that first!"
Digifanatic: "Let's just fight this freak..."
Scott: "I call the head."
Darkdata: "Hehe, oops."
Dragoshi: "God dammit. Don't steal my bit... Son of a sidewinder... And, I call the torso." *First, Drag flings an amethyst at the left leg.* "Of the tortoise, I mean."
Darkdata: "Dibs on the shell."
Dragoshi: *Apparently, Drag's seething hatred isn't good for his accuracy. A mech appears, takes Drag's machinegun, and FIRES at Ricky's mech's left arm.*
Metal Man (GM): Miss hit.
Traon: "A mini-mech versus a big mech... I like these odds."
Douglas summons Lighttech OWA in his hands, and launches at the mech's left leg for a wind-boosted slam.
Metal Man (GM): Hit.
Digifanatic goes straight for that left leg and smacks the left leg with the Golf Club, and then... oh, a WATER Punch instead of a Fire Punch? Sure, that could work... perhaps it'll rust that titanium a bit if he hits hard enough. Afterward, he saves some energy..
Metal Man (GM): Miss hit.
Scott puts two fingers to his lips and lets out a loud whistle. Suddenly Roxy comes rocketing in trailing a massive cloud of kicked up sand she doesn't slow down at all as she speeds in. Scott jumps does a somersaulting midair twist and catches Roxy in a split second, the ol' "Snatch'n'grab." He rockets up flipping the Rickenbacker to his left hand and hammers the throttle with his right. Over Ricky's head he leaps off Roxy. He flips the guitar again to his right mid-fall and drops the guitar on Ricky's mech's head/cockpit/whatever with all the force he can gather from terminal velocity!
Metal Man (GM): Hit.
Scott connects! He then uses the momentum of his strike to backflip off the Mech and he levels the Rickenbacker with the Mech... the gun-barrel in the headstock clearly visible... He starts playing a heavy bass solo and suddenly fire and superheated plasma pulls in toward the barrel. Then with a loud cannon blast he fires a screaming-flaming-skull of DooM at the Mech's cockpit!
Metal Man (GM): CRIT.
Scott: "EAT THAT YOU DAMNED TURTLE!!" *HE gets caught in midair by Roxy and rejoins the line.*
Darkdata: *Claps.* *Holds up a 7.0 sign.* "Now I wonder if this will work... heheh... Go Ice Elemental, Grab that Enemy Mech!"
Metal Man (GM): It misses.
Darkdata: "Let us try that again elemental... Grab that mech!"
Metal Man (GM): It crit-grabs the mech.
Darkdata: "Hold on and don't let go, slow the things ability to evade!" *Bows.* "I leave it up to you guys."
Metal Man (GM): It crushes it for a whopping amount damage and reduces its evasion for a while.
Scott: "Nice thinkin'." Scott grins with that sadistic grin.
Scott: "Blast em' Garrick!"
Digifanatic: "I'll say..."
Garrick: *unloads with a pair of charged slicing attacks.*
Darkdata: "It drains me to summon the thing, but it is worth it."
Metal Man (GM): Hit hit.
Darkdata: "I would say we are putting this turtle on ice, but that would be too bad of a pun. Even for me."
Traon goes on the aggressive and swings the pole of his weapon around with a charged effort and aims for the right leg.
Metal Man (GM): Hit.
Ricky Koopa: "Even your magic cannot restrain all of my own. You shall all feel the full wrath of the Magellean Military!"
Metal Man (GM): One of the claws on the left side opens up, revealing a cannon.
Dragoshi: *under his breath.* "...oh shut the hell up."
Metal Man (GM): It fires a plasma shot into the ground, causing a line of explosions that occur one after another and shoot upwards at Dragoshi.
Darkdata: "Why is there alllways cannons in the claws..."
Dragoshi: *...Stayin' alive.*
Metal Man (GM): Then he opens up the other claw, which fires a huge glob of concrete at Julian. The wet concrete hits Julian for some damage...
Dragoshi: .oO(...What the hell?)
Metal Man (GM): However, it quickly hardens, causing him to be stuck in place.
Digifanatic: "Shake it off before... oh man, that sets quick..."
Dragoshi: "...Cement cannon."
Ricky Koopa: "I am a turtle of many talents! And now, for my personal favorite."
Darkdata: "All of them useless."
Dragoshi: "You're about to be one of many food recipes!"
Scott: .oO(When he gets out of that I don't wanna be on the receiving end.)
Metal Man (GM): The center of the mech opens up, revealing the X-zone gun!
Darkdata: "Served in a shell bowl Dragoshi?"
Ricky Koopa: "It is time... TO SHRED SOME REALITY!!!!"
Digifanatic: "HOLD ON..."
Dragoshi: "Of cour-...Fuck."
Scott: "Look on the bright side... Turtle is the only animal that comes in it's own bowl."
Traon: "What about a snail?"
Dragoshi: "...Too small."
Digifanatic: "No more jokes, please..."
Scott: "Oh hell... Not an X-Zone gun..."
Dragoshi: "'Sides, a snail is an insect."
Ricky Koopa: "Let's see... this subject should be a good test..."
Metal Man (GM): He aims it at Douglas and fires.
Darkdata: "I wonder what would happen if my ice elemental were to throw it off balance with a pull, too bad it's frozen" *Makes a -_- face.*
Dragoshi: .oO(Oh, why couldn't it be bees?)
Douglas squints his eyes. Hit, BARELY.
Metal Man (GM): Douglas vanishes suddenly.
Ricky Koopa: "Hah! It works!"
Digifanatic: "Julian, before anything else, I will make an honest attempt to get rid of that concrete for you. Cement... same idea. And I'll give you an Ultra Shroom when I'm done..."
Dragoshi: "..." *Drag just switches his machinegun out for his scythe, swipes at the left leg twice, flip kicks it, then quickly puts his scythe away and draws the machinegun out again, shooting out a Tidal Blast!*
Metal Man (GM): Hit, hit. Miss hit hit. Douglas returns. However... certain things have... changed... He returns, but now his health is halved, and his hair is on fire. And he feels weaker.
Ricky Koopa: "...That's weird... but effective!"
Traon: "Hey, he looks like one of them guys we beat up on that one mission."
Douglas sighs, trying to pat out the fire.
Digifanatic, of course, abides by his word and starts trying to chip away at the cement that Jules was hit with... he smashes a Fire Punch straight to the heart of the cement and also pulls an Aerial Strike on it, considering the punch didn't crack it. Afterwards, he gives Julian the Ultra Shroom he promised, and thanks to proximity, guards Julian as well.
Metal Man (GM): Miss.
Julian DODGES! While encased in CEMENT. Digi SUCKS.
Metal Man (GM): Digi punches the cement. And he doesn't hit hard enough. It's extremely tough. Julian is on fire and takes some damage.
Digifanatic: *GIVES JULIAN THE SHROOM.*
Metal Man (GM): The shroom bounces off the concrete.
Ricky Koopa: "I didn't know you were into burning sculptures!"
Digifanatic: *lets it stay there, and then stands in front of Julian to guard the guy.* "Good chance Ricky has to go through me if he wants to touch you again... and like I said, it was an honest attempt."
Scott charges into the fray again against the Mech. He plays up another solo and suddenly plasma and electricity collect at the end of the Rickenbacker's barrel. He keeps on playing until he's got a full load. He raises the bass guitar up... He then catches a boost on a floating Roxy giving him a boost up into the air. He then fires a shotgun blast of four electricity balls!
Darkdata: "Guys I can get Julian out, don't waste your time."
Digifanatic: "You sure?"
Darkdata: "Quite sure."
Metal Man (GM): Miss miss miss miss.
Dragoshi: "It looks more so like you're trying and failing miserably."
Metal Man (GM): Miss hit hit miss.
Scott: "Damn! Thought for sure I had a clear shot!"
Ricky Koopa: "It is never clear whether I have won or defeated."
Darkdata: "Ice elemental... Pick up Julian... And throw him at the Mech..."
Dragoshi: "...Why do I have a fee-...Damn. I'm right."
Metal Man (GM): It picks up Julian and throws him. *SMASH.*
Digifanatic: "Interesting idea..."
Metal Man (GM): The concrete shatters, dealing damage to both the mech and Julian.
Digifanatic: .oO(THIS BETTER HIT OR WE ARE--oh, thank goodness.) "Alright, folks, give him some healing items!"
Ricky Koopa: "Gahhhh!"
Traon: "Ouch... Julian ain't going to be so happy about that."
Darkdata: "Well I got him out."
Dragoshi: "...But at least he's free... And hurt Ricky's mech like hell."
Darkdata: "Now for the fun part... Ice Elemental, grab his leg and spin him like Mario does to Bowser!"
Metal Man (GM): He does so... the mech is now flying around.
Darkdata: "Yes... away from us... No wait...!"
Dragoshi: "...Oh god. This is amusing to m-NO. Into the ground!"
Digifanatic: "YES, AWAY FROM US! Or that..."
Darkdata: "Keep him spinning!"
Metal Man (GM): Before Darkdata can react, he hurls it away.
Digifanatic: "As long as it's away from us..."
Dragoshi: "...Damn. That delays my plans."
Metal Man (GM): Takes a big piece of his arm with it, as the mech flies back where it came from and blows up.
Darkdata: "Here we goooo..."
Ricky Koopa: "I'll get you for thiiii" *BOOOOM.*
Metal Man (GM): The soldiers run after him.
Soldier2: "Master! We will save you!"
Digifanatic: "That was brilliantly executed."
Soldier3: "The green monster from Lefong will not eat you!"
Darkdata: "Ice elemental, follow them and cause as much chaos there as possible."
Dragoshi: "...Even after he threw one of your guys into the-Sod i-...Lefong. What th-...Urgh?"
Digifanatic: "No, that's just Alexia. I spoke to her while we were running... I heard her voice."
Dragoshi: "...Mind if I send your Elemental some assistance?"
Darkdata: "Go for it."
Metal Man (GM): Mission Completed.
Scott: "I'm just glad to get my frustration out on Ricky."
Metal Man (GM): +10,000 coins.
Digifanatic: "Yeah... that works."
Scott: "I feel tons better now."
Dragoshi: *Calls forth a mech.* "...I have a damn headache and the soup got away. Dammit."
Darkdata: "Well... It's not soup now... It might be baked though..."
Dragoshi: "Let's just call a warp home, 'cause this travesty is... temporarily over as far as I care." @_@
Scott: "Whatever... I wanna make damn sure that Ricky's dead. That may cure my frustration even more."
Metal Man (GM): There's a warp out right here.
Darkdata: *Steps through.*
Dragoshi: *Enter warp...*
Garrick: *walks in as well.*
Traon steps in slightly gulping at what might come to be in a few moments.
Scott: "...And nobody listens..."
Digifanatic: "No, that's cool... Go for it."
Scott sighs and goes into the warp with Roxy behind.
Digifanatic: *His head is half out of the portal.*
Douglas pushes Alexia into the warp, and then looks to E Li Three.
Digifanatic: *assumes Julian's on auto follow.*
Traon: "Mewtwo! You around?"
Metal Man (GM): Mewtwo is... not around.
Digifanatic: "So, what do we do now?"
Traon: "Bah... One thing after another... Dragoshi, it seems I'm destined not to give my little speech."
Scott comes through the warp and finds a seat. Roxy motors up next to him.
Darkdata: *Comes back from the next room looking tired.* "Woo, I am beat..."
Scott: "Man, that was exhausting. I dunno what's worse... My being all pissed off before the fight, my lack of sleep, or Roxy's... condition..."
Glyph peeks around from the corner of the bridge.
Traon: "Hop, don't try that again... If you have something to say, then come in here and say it."
Scott casts a half glare at Roxy. "You had to go and break your horn didn't ya?"
Glyph: *Hop is wearing a shiny belt... on his head. Connected to it is a cube and a gun.*
Roxy: "Oh quit your whining, Scott."
Digifanatic: "Whaaaaaaaa...? She can talk now?"
Scott: "Dah! Shut-up! No, no, she didn't say a thing."
Digifanatic: "No, that's cool..."
Traon: "..." .oO("Just when I thought he couldn't get weird... And don't you dare say anything!" '...' "That's what I thought.")
Glyph: *Hop shakes his head from side to side. The gun and the cube follow.*
Roxy: "...Oi, you're an idiot sometimes."
Glyph: *Hop outstretches his hand.* "Hello Roxy! I'm Hop!"
Traon: "This is calling for trouble..."
Roxy: *speaks with a slightly computerized female voice.*
Digifanatic: "Scott, I admit that's pretty interesting."
Roxy: "Uh... Yeah, hey there... whatever your name is. Forgive the fact that I don't have hands to shake."
Glyph: *Hop does not understand and still has his hand outstretched.*
Traon: "Scott, its partially my fault Roxy got that scratch..."
Digifanatic: .oO(We're talking to a SCOOTER of all things... I don't know whether to say if this is cool or bizarre...)
Roxy: "Actually I've always talked. I just used the horn. Scott knows what I'm sayin' like I'm R2-D2 or something."
Traon: "I could have made that hole bigger, but we were kind of in a hurry and I didn't put into thought to make the hole bigger."
Digifanatic: "Oh, neat."
Roxy: "Don't sweat it, kid."
Dragoshi pops not one, not two, not FOUR, but FIVE headache meds 'cause of how fuckin' INANE this day was.
Editor's Note: I half-should have had him lose a life for that. :p
Glyph: *Hop still has his hand outstretched. His arm is starting to ache, and so is his Cube-flail armored head.*
Garrick: *walks in, looking slightly worn out.* "Hey everyone... grah... I need some coffee... and a shower..."
Roxy: "Yo, Garrick."
Garrick: "Hey Roxy."
Digifanatic: *walks over to Hop, and whispers.* "She can't shake your hand. Maybe request something different that shows something positive..."
Traon: "I need a mind reader... I have some issues I need to get resolved."
Roxy: "Oh, about the handshake thing, kid. I'm a scooter so it's not like I have hands."
Glyph: *Hop finally puts his arm down. He raises it and takes the Cube-flail off his head.*
Digifanatic: *whispers.* "Maybe have her blink her light or something if Scott doesn't mind."
Garrick: "If you want a mind reader, then you probably should talk to Alexia, she--" *stops, his eyebrow slowly raising...
Digifanatic: "I don't think she's telepathic."
Garrick: *he slowly looks over to Roxy.*
Digifanatic: "Telekinetic but not telepathic."
Roxy: *turns back toward Garrick.*
Traon: "Garrick, I don't want to trouble the girl with any more troubles. Mewtwo would be of more help."
Roxy: *laughs loudly.*
Digifanatic grins but he's hiding it with his left hand...
Roxy: "That's my line."
Glyph: *Hop is swinging around the Cube-flail above his head.*
Digifanatic: "Hop, please put that down..."
Garrick: "Okay, what did Scott do to you?"
Glyph: *Hop does, but not before it breaks off and the cube goes flying.*
Roxy: "Actually I broke my horn so I had to turn my voicebox on."
Dragoshi: "...Oh, damn."
Digifanatic: "SIMBER, catch the cube."
Dragoshi: *Runs over to where the cube is.*
Roxy: "I tried not to say anything during the job so you didn't all get confused and get possibly smacked around."
Darkdata: *Uses the call item songspell to grab and float the cube in mid air to him.*
Garrick: "Ohhhh... you want me to fix it?"
Darkdata: "Let us not break something this important..."
Glyph: [Hop] "Important what now?"
Darkdata: "Drag could you put this back?"
Glyph: [Hop] "That's my treasure! I got it traveling in the Dungeon of Sawyer!"
Traon: "I'm actually starting to like this Roxy. Thing is close to human by the way she speaks."
Roxy: "Yeah, could'ja, please?"
Digifanatic: "I'm not sure if that was his room."
Glyph: [Hop] "It had to be! There was a big lump there I couldn't wake up!"
Garrick: *nods and walks over to Roxy, then hesitates.*
Digifanatic: "In fact, I wouldn't be surprised if he would even have something like that in his room..."
Roxy: "I don't usually talk around you guys but with my horn outta commission I didn't have much choice."
Digifanatic: "But Julian was dozing off in the Big Room."
Garrick: "...erm... you sure you want me to do this with everyone watching?"
Roxy: "You don't plan on taking off any panels do ya'? That could get pretty hot... if ya know what I mean."
Garrick: "Okay, shut up. That's just weird..."
Traon coughs back a laugh turns around, trying to keep from bursting out in laughter.
Digifanatic: *muttering to Scott.* "I imagine her having a sense of humor but not that kinda humor..."
Garrick: *rolls his eyes and takes out his Multi-Tool! and starts to work. It's not that difficult of a procedure.*
Scott: "Yeah, that's part of the reason I didn't have her talk around you guys."
Glyph: *Hop looks at his broken Cube-flail.*
Digifanatic: *still muttering.* "Figures..."
Garrick: "...alright... there... okay, try it now."
Scott: "If she were human she'd be a sultry little minx."
Digifanatic chuckles at Scott's comment.
Roxy: "Yep, better than new."
Dragoshi: *Facepalms, takes his hat and cloak off, puts them away, chuckles then leans 'gainst the wall.*
Roxy: "Thanks, G."
Garrick: "Yeah, yeah."
Digifanatic: "So, Scott, ya gonna stick with the voicebox or back to the horn?"
Garrick: *grumbles and walks off.*
Traon turns back around and leans against the wall as well. "So, now what?"
Roxy: "Well, since the silence's been broke I might as well stay like this. Unless I need to speak to Scott privately... then I'll use the horn."
Digifanatic: "Eh, fair enough."
Roxy: "I get the feelin' I'm gonna scare people with this."
Traon: "Odd enough, I'm not surprised..."
Roxy: "Meh, didn't think you'd be that surprised anyway."
Scott: "I did."
Roxy: "Quiet you."
Scott: "Yes, mam."
Roxy: "Jeeze, You're a real pushover when it comes to women, Scott."
Traon: "I may have a dislike for machines, but I sadly understand them. Funny thing is, the only two things I like about machines are crammed into one thing right there in you Roxy. You're a form of transportation and a form of communication." *For once he actually smiles at his compliment towards the scooter.*
Roxy: "Whew... That's a load off. For a bit there I was 'fraid you were still a little *rawr* toward stuff like me, y'know?"
Digifanatic: "Don't worry about it..."
Traon: "What? Were you actually worried about me doing something bad?" *He smirks.*
Roxy: "Well, I wouldn't put it past you to sneak a peek at my internals but..." *sultry laugh.*
Digifanatic: .oO(SHE'S A SCOOTER...)
Scott: "Okay, enough of that little missy."
Roxy: "Oh, for cryin' out loud... I'm just kiddin' 'round, Scott."
Traon facepalms and sits on the floor. "Oh the hilarity..."
Digifanatic: *texting Scott.* "Scott, thank goodness you can still see Judy on those rare occasions..."
Scott: *txt.* "Yeah, now you know why she and Rox got along so well."
Glyph: *Hop built a Gun-flail!*
Digifanatic: *txt.* "I see."
Traon: "Dragoshi, your more on the sane side, lets go grab a beer or something before this hilarity drives me insane."
Scott: "Please." *He gets up and comes back with some chilled brews from his room.*
Dragoshi: "No thanks."
Scott: "For those that don't know... I make this in my room."
Digifanatic: "Ditto Dragoshi. I appreciate the offer..."
Scott cracks one open and takes a sip from the bottle. "You want one, Traon?"
Digifanatic: "But remember, I do not want stuff like alcohol screwing around with me..."
Roxy: "I think he knew about that."
Traon: "Toss one over here." he looks at Dragoshi again, "Not the drinkin' type eh? Well I don't think anyone is holdin' it against ya."
Digifanatic: "Heh... hence the word 'remember.'"
Glyph: *Hop is flinging the gun over his head with the belt connected to it. It is a mighty weapon indeed.*
Dragoshi: *Looks at the cube that was part of the cube flail... he attempts to recognize it.*
Scott hands one to Traon. Labeled and everything. "Scott-Weiser."
Traon: "Odd brew, but as long as it has a brisk taste, I'm happy." he pops it open and takes a swig.
Scott: "I hope it's brisk enough for you. You should see my brewin' equipment."
Glyph: *Hop peeks over at Traon from behind.*
Scott: "I make the hops in a Sam Adams look like nothin'."
Traon: "And there's the taste. Truly a good beer."
Digifanatic: "Traon, just don't get drunk on us, alright?"
Glyph: *Hop is still absent-mindedly dragging the gun-flail back and forth like a swing.*
Roxy: "I remember that time you brewed up moonshine in your apartment... That ended well."
Scott groans..."Please don't remind me."
Glyph: [Hop] "Trade?"
Traon: "Moonshine, eh? I refuse to drink the hard stuff... And don't worry I won't get drunk, only want one to drink."
Scott: "Would've been fine if someone hadn't emptied my supply into her gas tank."
Dragoshi: "..." *Tries to hold back a laugh.*
Traon: "Hey, they say moonshine is a second fuel source."
Glyph: [Hop] "Trade?"
Scott: "You were hyped up on that stuff like it was Red Bull."
Digifanatic: "Hop, what do you mean?"
Glyph: [Hop] "I've never had an alcohol before. I'll trade you my Gun-flail!"
Scott turns to Hop. "Sure, why not."
Scott hands him a brew.
Digifanatic: "Just don't drink too much of it..."
Glyph: *Hop hands you what are most definitely Garrick's belt and gun tied together.*
Scott: *whispers to Digi.* "I'm only giving him one."
Digifanatic: *wipes his forehead.*
Traon: "Watch... Hes a lightweight."
Digifanatic: "Last thing I need to see are Questers with hangovers."
Glyph: *Hop opens it and carefully sniffs.*
Scott: "Why's the M-150 tied to this belt with G. Fy'aar written on it?"
Digifanatic: *eyes widen.*
Glyph: [Hop] "You say something?"
Digifanatic: "Put that back in the lab."
Traon: "Because Garrick got gipped."
Digifanatic: "NOW." *whispering to Scott.* "I'll make sure no takes the drinks..."
Glyph: *Hop puts his finger in the can and holds it upside-down.* *is stuck.*
Traon takes another small swig and watches Hop. "This should be interesting."
Digifanatic: "Second-to-last thing I need to see is Garrick finding out what happened with one of his guns."
Scott: "I'll go take these back."
Digifanatic: "Thank you..." *makes sure nobody tries to take more drinks unless asked.*
Glyph: *Hop is not paying attention to Digi and Dragoshi and is too busy trying to remove his finger from the bottle.*
Scott gets up and takes the M-150 and Garrick's belt back to his room... hoping he's not there. Then makes his way back.
Digifanatic: "I see no bruises... that must mean good news." *lets Scott back to his job of watching the beer.*
Glyph: *Hop flings his arm about like a windmill.*
Scott: "I also took the extras back to my room... and locked my fridge."
Digifanatic: "Oh." .oO(I am so close to cracking a Townshend joke...)
Glyph: *Hop pulls his beerfingered arm out of one side of his shirt, turns it around backwards, and pokes it out the other side.*
Digifanatic: .oO(TALKIN' BOUT MY GEEENERATION!)
Traon: oO("Ahh... now this reminds me of the good ol days..." 'Hrmph, it's a shame you were ALONE in those days.' "Burn in hell!") *He lightly grunts to himself and takes another swig.*
Glyph: *Hop retracts his arms into his shirt and spins around in circles on his heels, attempting to use centrifugal force to remove the beer.*
Traon is clubbed in the head from the spinning and he falls on his face. "Oh its on now..."
Digifanatic: "Traon, please..."
Glyph: *Hop falls backwards and hits his head on the wall, ironically the cube-dented wall.*
Digifanatic: "Hop, would you like some help..."
Traon gets up and sits down and takes another swig.
Dragoshi: "..." *Walks over to Hop.*
Glyph: [Hop] "Um, yes please." *stands up.*
Digifanatic: "Alright... now just stand still."
Dragoshi: *Grabs the bottlefingered arm.*
Digifanatic: *grabs the bottom of the bottle.*
Traon: "Told you he is a lightweight. He got wasted just from sniffing it."
Dragoshi: *Tries to-Hey, I'm trying to work here, ya little ignorant-*
Digifanatic: *pulls the bottle downward, holding it tight enough so it won't slip.*
Glyph: *Hop is flung backwards and makes a third dent in the cube-dented wall, skidding the carpet.* *was pulling back with all of his might.*
Digifanatic: *Is the bottle separated from his finger?*
Glyph: *Hop looks at his arm, seeing only sleeve.* "AHHHHHHH!"
Traon: "Hop, stick to wine coolers. Much weaker drink."
Glyph: *Hop moves his sleeve, revealing that he has, indeed, not lost his arm.* "Phew!"
Digifanatic: *apparently, his hand was well inside the sleeve... unless the finger came loose from the bottle...*
Dragoshi: "I don't think he's wasted, just crazy."
Glyph: [Hop] "Thank you, I think so too!"
Traon looks at his bottle and realizes it is empty, so he throws it away in the closest trash can. "Well, im done with the drinking."
Digifanatic: *But did they free his finger?* *holds onto the bottle.* "Promise not to do that again?"
Scott: "Yep, I think I'm gonna go catch some z's myself, now."
Traon: "We should get Hop one of them finger cuffs and see how long it takes him to figure it out."
Glyph: [Hop] "I have learned my lesson. Alcohol is not the answer."
Digifanatic: "No... Not necessarily..."
Roxy: "I'm a little wore out today too."
Glyph: [Hop] "Now I know. And knowing is half the battle."
Digifanatic: "Just don't stick your finger in the bottleneck."
Scott and Roxy head toward their room.
Digifanatic: "See ya, Scott. And Roxy."
Glyph: [Hop] "GO JOE!"
Dragoshi: "..." *Facepalmaga.*
Digifanatic: "I don't mind if Scott lets you have a drink on occasion... just don't put your finger in those bottles."
Traon yawns and he to starts to head to his room. "Ya, I'm going to go turn in myself."
Glyph: [Hop] "I have seen what it does to me, and I don't think I want to drink anymore..."
Digifanatic: "Alright... If you don't want it, that's fine."
Digifanatic: "I'll just cap it back on and return it to Scott's room. You didn't take any sips... So I'd say it's still safe..."
Glyph: [Hop] "Wait, give it back, I can probably turn it into... some sort of... beermachine!"
Dragoshi: "...Who the hell would drink from a bottle that had some guy's FINGER in it?"
Digifanatic: "Ack... sorry."
Glyph: *Hop reaches for the bottle.*
Digifanatic: "I'm just going by the fact his mouth didn't touch... I apologize..." *smacks himself in the arm.*
Dragoshi: *Taps on Digi's head lightly as if it was a door, jokingly.* "Anyone in there? But, seriously."
Digifanatic: "Myyyyyyyy bad."
Glyph: *Hop looks inside Digi's ear attempting to see who, if any, are in there.* "I don't think so, Dragoshi."
Dragoshi: "I was being figurative." >_>;;
Glyph: [Hop] "Oh? Like, the poseable kind?"
Digifanatic: *sits down on a couch and lies on his side for a few seconds.*
Dragoshi: "No. Those are action figures. Figurative means not literally... And, no not like books. That's literature."
Digifanatic: *exhales deeply.* "Today was just nuts."
Dragoshi: "And, no. Not garbage. That's just plain litter."
Glyph: [Hop] "I'm glad you sorted that out ahead of time. You could have confused somebody."
Digifanatic: *rubs his forehead for a few seconds and gets back up.*
Dragoshi: "Also, yea. That was nucking futs." @_@
Digifanatic: "Alright, I'm out of this room, at least..."
Glyph: *Hop looks at Digi.*
Glyph: [Hop] "I'm pretty sure you're still in this room. I don't see a wall."
Digifanatic: *smiles and laughs it off.* "Sorry."
Glyph: [Hop] "I mean, I guess you could have a layout that has two rooms look like one, but why? I guess I don't understand architecture."
Digifanatic: "I'll be leaving this room... I should have clarified..."
Glyph: *Hop stops his stupid goofy smile.* [Leviathan] "Or you could entrust this body to someone who's not an idiot. Your choice, people."
Digifanatic: "Don't sweat it, Hop. It was my fault."
Glyph resumes grinning like an idiot as if nothing had happened.
Dragoshi: "...Naaaah. I'd prefer it if Hop was in control."
Glyph: [Hop] "Who's in the what?"
Digifanatic: "Bye, folks."
Dragoshi: "'Kay. Adios."
Glyph: [Hop] "I don't feel so well... I think I'll head to, uh, the place where the Robot likes to sit and glare menacingly when I get my headaches."
Digifanatic: *heads over to that room behind the Stadium, QUIETLY plays around with his keyboards for about 10-15 minutes, and eventually hits his room.*
Glyph: [Hop] "I don't know how robots glare but that's just what makes them so wonderful!" *skips off.*
Dragoshi: "Okay... Sounds like a good idea. You go there. In fact, I'll escort you." *Follows.*
