Super Smash Quest - Story - Chapter 334: Clash of the Magelleans
Date: March 10th, 2007.
Metal Man (GM): The group is in the Big... no, Q.S. Seeker's Bridge. Mewtwo sits by, seeing the mission selected.
Digifanatic: .oO(Yeah, that's right.)
Alexia: "I never, ever, ever want to see Dr. Mario. Ever again."
Mewtwo: "About time. ...Though Julian will be sad to miss this mission, it needed to be done. Simply put, find out what Charles is up to."
Digifanatic: "Oh, you know him. He can pop up without warning."
Mewtwo: "He's... 'invited'... you over... which is always a horrible sign. At his request I will also read this."
Digifanatic: "I wouldn't be surprised if Jules lays down some law at any moment."
Harnit stands over on one side of the room and listens to the mission briefing..*
Metal Man (GM): He takes out a scroll, upon the back of it showing the Lunarian Seal. Or something roughly like it.
Mewtwo: *AHEM* "I, Charles the first, ruler of the true Magellean Military, Early Quester, Former Kajidoh Defector, Former Quester Hunter, Former Former Mega Mack Maniac, Former Slave of Haxgel, Former Maester... Formerly known as Magellan... Formerly known as Locos Docos..."
Alexia openly yawns.
Mewtwo: "...Invite you to sip tea and eat crumpets at my new fortress by the Acid seas."
Dragoshi: "..." *Blinks.*
Digifanatic: .oO(Whoa... lotta titles.)
Dragoshi: "...Okay. My god, that's a lot of titles."
Mewtwo: "...He wasted most of the paper on titles and then didn't even bother to leave a closing message?"
Douglas blinks rapidly. "Yeah. I'm gonna stick with my theory that this isn't really Charles."
Mewtwo: "Weird." He tosses it over his shoulder. It bounces off of a window. "Anyway, you may go to his castle."
Darkdata: "He must of run out of ink from all of those titles."
Harnit: "Who is this Charles person?"
Metal Man (GM): The warp opens.
Bonecrusher jumps in.
Dragoshi: *Puts on his breathing mask, then enters za warupo.*
Digifanatic: *mask and warp.*
Mewtwo: "Maybe he is, maybe he isn't. I could never tell when Charles was acting for real or when he was possessed... possibly because it was a coin flip to decide whether or not he was."
Alexia enters the warp, still bandaged up from yesterday, after putting on a mask.
Harnit prepares himself and enters the warp, hoping a fellow Quester will answer his question.
Digifanatic: *holds his position right before.* "Oh, him, Harnit? Very long story."
Darkdata: *Orb of Air.* "Well I need no mask..."
Darkdata: *Through the warp!*
Douglas enters le teleporter.
Bonecrusher has mask in place.
Metal Man (GM): WARP. The Questers appear... inside the throne room of this ornate, entirely black tire. I mean tower.
Harnit holds his staff close and looks about the room.
Metal Man (GM): Around the room, there are regularly placed bricks of a black substance, fairly glassy and stonelike.
Alexia: "Amazingly, I think those whacks to the head actually cleared up some stuff..."
Dragoshi: "...Nice place."
Metal Man (GM): A double-door is flung open quickly from behind the throne, and then Charles himself walks in, and sits in his chair.
Alexia reflectively rubs the gauze on her head a bit with her non-broken hand. "I think so, yeah."
Dragoshi: "Ah. 'K, then."
Bonecrusher looks at Alexia, and says, "What wrong?"
Alexia: "Got my head bashed in."
Charles Magellean: "Hello, Questers. I have been waiting for you. What... took you so long?"
Darkdata: "Pressing Issues, you must remember how it is."
Harnit looks towards Charles Magellean. "Sorry, sir... We were held up by other assignments."
Douglas: "I hope the tea isn't cold."
Charles Magellean: "Perhaps... but I find it a bit rude." He stares at Darkdata for a moment, before then taking a swig from a bottle of Coca-Cola he brought with him.
Charles Magellean: "Ah, yes. For you." He looks up. "Fayth! Bring me my tea!"
Douglas raises an eyebrow.
Alexia: "No, wait, I mean--oh, forget it."
Fayth: "Coming, sir." *He appears in the room, and then takes out a tea set... already heated. He pours tea for the Questers, and puts out some cookies and crumpets.*
Charles Magellean: "Now... I've come here to discuss my... past oddities. For the longest time... we have been at odds."
Dragoshi: *Bows in thanks, and takes a cup, sipping it, then stays silent.*
Alexia: "That's quite an understatement."
Metal Man (GM): He finishes drinking his coca-cola, and then takes the glass bottle and holds it up.
Harnit thanks the servant for a cup, but doesn't drink or eat the refreshments. He listens to what Charles has to offer.
Charles Magellean: "If the bottle was me, and you were... my fist... this is how it has been for me."
Metal Man (GM): He puts the bottle on the armrest, then immediately smashes it with his fist, causing glass fragments to fly everywhere.
Metal Man (GM): He wipes some of the blood off of his cut hand, casually.
Alexia: "That's... uh... quite a hit there..."
Harnit flinches as the Lunarian smashes the bottle.
Douglas sips some tea. .oO(I haven't had tea since before I appeared on Turion...)
Charles Magellean: "I am still trying to recover from that incident with Trevor... and as it is, it is very hard to retain my sanity with how things have been..."
Darkdata: "Well when one can not use words... I guess one resorts to other means of communication."
Digifanatic: *takes a cautious sip from his tea.*
Dragoshi: "...I really don't blame you."
Bonecrusher grabs the plate of crumpets.
Metal Man (GM): He stands up... looking downcast. He begins speaking, softly at first.
Darkdata: "Bonecrusher, those are for everyone. Put them down."
Dragoshi: "Yes. Please do." *Sip.*
Bonecrusher grumbles as he replaces the plate.
Charles Magellean: "At first... an honest mistake. I drank... the Mega Mack. But then..." He idly swings his right arm through the air, as Fayth puts another plate of crumpets down.
Harnit: "He can have my share..."
Dragoshi: "..." *Takes some cookies, calmly putting the tea down, and eats them while trying not to make too much of a mess.*
Charles Magellean: "Then... I was ostracized." He swings through the air again. "And tormented." He kicks his throne. He speaks louder. "All of my dreams were ground... into dirt." He procures his busted smash dex, then hurls it into the wall. "Everything I ever cared for... Valhalla... Aribar... Yurie... Killed!" He sits down abruptly, slamming both fists on the armrests, shaking the room somewhat.
Alexia: "..." *She discreetly scoots away an inch or two, leaving her tea untouched.*
Charles Magellean: "But no... that wasn't enough... I thought I had found sanity in a ward... Aetos..." He projects a piece of diamond jutting out of charcoal.
Harnit widens his eyes as Charles's actions grow more outrageous..
Digifanatic takes a crumpet and takes a mild bite or two, but is more focused on Charles' mouth than his own.
Charles Magellean: "...And look what it did to me!" He stabs it, diamond point first, into his left palm, then hurls it into a wall just over Dragoshi's head, where it disintegrates.
Charles Magellean: "Ricky... he made Trevor... he tried to save me..."
Dragoshi: "..." *Continues eating the cookies he picked up, still calm.*
Charles Magellean: "Does this... look saved to you?" He lifts up his right arm, and pulls back the sleeve, revealing hundreds of scars from hordes of battles.
Alexia: "...No?" *very meekly and quietly.*
Metal Man (GM): Burns. Small indentations. Bruises. Marks.
Dragoshi: "...No. It looks like going through many a war." *Calmly.*
Metal Man (GM): He drops it again, onto the armrest, and shakes his head, putting it in his hands.
Darkdata: "... I think that was a rhetorical question."
Charles Magellean: "I only want to live again... but I cannot do so if you continue to harass me with your foolery. I request... an END to the misuse of my name... THE DEATH... of those who betrayed me... and... PEACE for me and any who remain of my loyal cohorts."
Bonecrusher: "Who need die?"
Harnit frowns as he listens to Magellean's requests...
Dragoshi: .oO(Harass? I'm trying to stay out of that idiocy)
Metal Man (GM): He looks up, and speaks in a gruff, dark voice, very... slowly. He points a lone finger at Aetos.
Dragoshi: "..." *He's finished the cookies he took, taking the teacup he drank from, and sips from it again.*
Charles Magellean: "A... e...t... o...s..."
Douglas narrows his eyes.
Alexia: "That's... not really our decision..."
Digifanatic: *another light sip here, a nibble there.*
Harnit: "U-um... Mr. Magellean?"
Metal Man (GM): He stands up again, a dark light in his eyes, as he pulls out a book. The book of Sardis Mongul. The original copy. He starts from the last page, and begins reading in a nasal tone, almost like Sardis.
Alexia slowly begins inching backwards again.
Charles Magellean: "...Look yonder to the past... and ensure that no one revives the X-zone. If it should happen... the world would be destroyed."
Metal Man (GM): He moves his left hand outwards. An image of Nintendus appears. He holds it in his hand. Then suddenly another hand, just like Aetos', alongside The Void's own, dashes it into a million pieces.
Charles Magellean: "Ever since warping into this realm to study The X-Zone, it has been a curse..."
Alexia glances around for the exit. This is REALLY starting to scare her...
Metal Man (GM): A hologram shows the place on Aetos where the mark of The Void once was. And then shows immense chaos energy... ripping apart reality around him.
Harnit watches the hologram. "W-why study this X-Zone if it is so dangerous?"
Douglas looks back at his own palm, where the mark was..
Charles Magellean: "Those who let their emotions overcome them... create phantom monsters... of themselves."
Metal Man (GM): He shows the Four Fiends of his realm; each terrifying monsters. Then he points at Aetos, slamming the book shut and dropping it with a thud.
Dragoshi: "..." .oO(Such impressive monstrosities... Though, this also piques my curiosity.)
Charles Magellean: "This... is but one of the many who must die for betraying my innocent soul. Ricky... Dr. Ivo Robotnik... Doopliss..."
Dragoshi: .oO(Innocent? ...No one is innocent not even those who are considered that.)
Harnit: "Killing others won't change the past..."
Charles Magellean: "Bob... Bob... B..ob..." He punches a hole in the floor, he is so angry at that name.
Metal Man (GM): He lifts his fist out, trembling, and then walks back to his throne, and sits.
Charles Magellean: "Therefore, I offer you a deal: Destroy the cursed ones and I will never bother you again."
Douglas coughs. He eyes of truth and looks at his own hand.
Harnit: "That's wrong..."
Charles Magellean: "Disagree... and..." He takes out a piece of granite and breaks it with his bare hands.
Metal Man (GM): Douglas sees... what he is looking for is still there... just slightly.
Darkdata: "So how long did you practice this, how long did this very speech run over in your mind?"
Douglas ceases the truth-vision and looks back up, worried. .oO(How can it still be there?.. It was purged long ago...)
Charles Magellean: "..." He stands up, and faces Darkdata. "Rek'Shnael."
Metal Man (GM): He fires a massive red beam at Darkdata.
Metal Man (GM): It reflects off... and only heals him.
Harnit holds his staff defensively. "That was uncalled for!"
Charles Magellean: "Consider yourself lucky... that it did not erase you from this space and time."
Alexia: *thinking.* "And that's why I keep my mouth shut..."
Metal Man (GM): He sits down again.
Bonecrusher: "Holy hell!"
Harnit: "Mr... Charles, might I ask you something?"
Douglas: "Charles, it would seem my soul remains cursed by the Void still, somehow... but you should look within you, and you might see your own soul is truly burdened, and needs true relief."
Charles Magellean: "One thing... and if you want to be a smart aleck, then you can join the cursed ones on my list."
Douglas: "Vengeance against anyone wont help you."
Harnit: "It is a horrible thought, but... Have you thought to seek comfort and peace in death?"
Charles Magellean: *He stands up, and slowly moves his face directly into Douglas', staring into his eyes.* "I. Have. No. Soul." Then he walks back to his chair.
Harnit: "I ask this because the Reaper... Desires your soul."
Darkdata: "Oh, the reaper wants your soul. Even if you have none."
Alexia gulps again. This is not the usual Alexia sitting here in the chamber...
Charles Magellean: "Let him want my soul. He can die at my own hands, as you probably will for your... blatant lack of respect."
Dragoshi: "..." *Still sipping his tea.*
Digifanatic: .oO(And here goes the house.)
Harnit: "We meant no disrespect, sir..."
Metal Man (GM): He sighs, and shakes his head again, picking up a broken gauntlet.
Traon warps in and just watches whats goin' on.
Charles Magellean: "Lumis Dongthar... knew no respect either... and look what happened to him."
Metal Man (GM): He tosses it. It clatters on the table, and breaks in two.
Charles Magellean: "That's all that remains of him."
Darkdata: "Yet, how can you not destroy the demons in your life... if you are so powerful?"
Alexia: "Please don't punish Harnit. It's not his fault."
Harnit shudders and wonders what exactly they're dealing with...
Douglas pulls out Charles' Frozen Hatred, and examines everything for a reaction.
Charles Magellean: "The demons... are the only reason I need this cursed power. You may remember... the red chaos emerald..."
Metal Man (GM): He generates a hologram of it in his hand.
Digifanatic: .oO(Ah yes...)
Charles Magellean: "The power of wrath... needs no vessel to be used."
Charles Magellean: "If... they die... I, too, can die somewhat... but only... in my wrath. All I wanted to do... was build the Lunaris Ferranium..."
Metal Man (GM): He seems to not care about the Frozen Hatred. Fayth cleans up the mess created by Charles'... demonstration.
Dragoshi: .oO(Lunaris Ferranium? Where have I heard that before... And, what the heck is it?)
Harnit: "Wh-what is the Lunaris Ferranium?"
Charles Magellean: "And now... is when I ask you politely... to take my offer." He stands up, a red aura around him. "Destroy the Re'natak and live... or become them and die."
Digifanatic: .oO(That festival...)
Dragoshi: .oO(That also reminds... I STILL need to find translation scriptures.)
Metal Man (GM): He waits; the room is in utter silence.
Harnit: "Killing people won't let you die in any sort of peace..."
Douglas can't speak for anyone else, but Douglas has that one little mission of his own anyways, so he's gotta kill whatever Charles' he finds.
Darkdata: *Plays what sounds like the Jeopardy theme, of course he would not know what that is.*
Charles Magellean: "To the contrary... my wrath will not cease until they are all dead." He comes one step closer to the Questers.
Dragoshi: *Still sipping his tea... Then puts it down, waiting for the others to speak.*
Harnit takes a step back. "Taking the lives of others to appease your own desires is selfish!"
Darkdata: "If you kill us, who will defeat the "Demons" of your life?"
Digifanatic: "But, Harnit, at the very least, we hate Ricky right now."
Douglas coughs at Digi.
Charles Magellean: "I am myself... and I alone shall do the necessary work... if I must." He steps one step closer, then another.
Darkdata: "Ah yes... That Koopa..."
Alexia backs away.
Metal Man (GM): Fayth steps behind him, to his left, silently.
Dragoshi: "Ah, yes... Him."
Fayth: "It is the will of Charles that all who have betrayed him die... and he will consider you traitors if you do not aid him."
Dragoshi: .oO(Damned soup dish!)
Harnit stops backing away and decides to stand his ground. "How could I be a traitor to someone I've just met minutes before?"
Digifanatic: "It's a very long story."
Charles Magellean: "Your perceived sense of immortality amuses me. I shall delight in ending it." He kicks over the table. "I shall be taking that back, Aetos."
Darkdata: "Don't bother asking Harnit, thinks are never logical around here."
Digifanatic: *aside to Harnit.* "The guy has more twists and turns that a road through the mountains."
Fayth: "Even though we number two, we have power beyond Kuja himself. You shall be... slaughtered."
Metal Man (GM): The Fayth fluctuates and changes slightly.
Dragoshi: .oO(Hmm... I don't believe them... What are they REALLY after?)
Harnit tries to think of something to say to calm Charles, but believes there must be nothing... Or almost nothing.* "Can we not make amends for those that wronged you?"
Charles Magellean: "Kill... the demons... Killl... the demons... KILL THEM..."
Alexia: "Uh, guys, we might want to run."
Digifanatic: "Not a bad move..."
Metal Man (GM): He points at Aetos, a strange white light glowing at him. A strange voice speaks.
Harnit gets out his Dex. "Dex, get us a warp back home!"
Douglas: "We've got to fight, though, Alexia."
Sumner: "You have been convicted of betrayal of the Magellean Military. Your sentence... is DEATH."
Alexia: "We can't fight him! He'll slaughter us!"
Dragoshi: "...What the-?"
Digifanatic: .oO(Well at least he betrayed the MM for OUR CAUSE!)
Darkdata: "Oh no! While he is distracted!" *Slip Spellsong.*
Douglas: "Fine, we can flee now, but he's gotta go eventually..." *He gets a parry ready, with Frozen Hatred.*
Metal Man (GM): He slips... Fayth catches him and rights him up.
Dragoshi: "...grr..." .oO(If he isn't gonna kill Douglas, then apparently my name's Captain French Fry.)
Dex: "Error... jamming field."
Darkdata: "Guys, we should run... If we could..."
Harnit pockets his dex. "This is his castle, and we cannot warp away."
Charles Magellean: "You fight me like this? Some Questers you are. Perhaps you are better named... Bounty Hunters!"
Metal Man (GM): The door behind you IS unlocked.
Dragoshi: "...Oh, do NOT start that up again."
Harnit: "I do not wish to fight you!"
Douglas: "We sure could use a summoner, about now."
Charles Magellean: "Then run like cowards. It is the Quester way." He sneers.
Alexia clenches a fist.
Dragoshi: *Snarls, and clenches his left claw.*
Alexia stands up.
Douglas would agree with Charles.
Alexia: "YOU DARE CALL US COWARDS?!"
Dragoshi: "You know something..."
Digifanatic: .oO(I am not a coward!)
Darkdata: "So, Lell was powerful, is this one weaker?"
Charles Magellean: "I dare... to call you worse than cowards. You are fools... idiots... imbeciles... morons... you lack direction... you know nothing... and you destroy everything you seek to save."
Alexia takes out her gun with her uninjured hand and snarls defiantly.
Dragoshi: "The tea was good... As were the cookies, but my HELL..."
Alexia: "You're a liar and a thief, Charles."
Fayth: *Bows.* "Why thank you, Dragoshi."
Digifanatic: "We're trying to save planets here..."
Dragoshi: *Oh, that is it. His eyes actually TURN acid green with hatred.* "YOU HAVE AROUSED MY IRE."
Fayth: "Too bad I will have to kill you."
Alexia: "Your cunning tricks make me sick. You wanna see us fight?"
Darkdata: "Which one of you wants to yell insults?"
Alexia: "Then LET'S GO!"
Darkdata: *To teammates.*
Charles Magellean: "The time for discussion is over. You all must die." He walks directly at the Questers, trying to begin a fight.
Harnit holds his magical staff in both hands and holds it to the floor. He starts muttering arcane words to some spell... He tries to draw in the environment and tune himself into the magical energies surrounding him. If they must fight then the boy believes he'll need an advantage... (Enviromental Sync.)
Dragoshi: "...And, my god it takes some serious stones or FUCKING STUPIDITY to do that." *Pulls out his machinegun.*
Bonecrusher backs into the corner, still watchful of what's going on.
Metal Man (GM): Fayth follows... what the? He suddenly gains a dark aura.
Alexia: *through her teeth.* "Corruption."
Fayth: "You shall pay for disobeying the true path." He follows Charles.
Douglas: "Listen, Charles. The Aetos you knew is buried inside me now. I didn't even know the Void's mark was still on me!"
Charles Magellean: "Pish posh. You are evil to the very core. Chaotic evil."
Dragoshi: "Oh, pish posh yourself."
Douglas: "I am not!"
Fayth: "The Maester can never be wrong."
Alexia: "Tch. We fight for the light. And nothing can change that."
Digifanatic: .oO(Sounds like Julian.)
Darkdata: "Fayth, if the master is never wrong, then why does he stand with demons in his heart?"
Douglas mutters. "And what about Golbez? Can he be wrong? Sounds like you've forgotten one of Charles' new names."
Darkdata: "Scars showing deeds that he said out of his words were wrong. He 'asked' us for help, but backed it up with force. He needs to face something that he has never even thought about facing."
Digifanatic decides to go for it.
Darkdata: "I say he even fears it."
Digifanatic: "I've been a Quester too long to be considered a coward. If I die, so be it."
Douglas: >.> .oO(When 'Charles' calls them cowards, they go 'ZOMG OH NO YOU DIDN'T' but when someone else does they go 'So? I dun wanna die!')
Bonecrusher has no grasp of the word coward.
Charles Magellean: "At one time, I was one of you... but now I am something else... and I must remove the contagion of the Quester past of mine from existence."
Metal Man (GM): He powers up; the entire room shakes violently.
Alexia: "Still can't let go of your past, I see."
Charles Magellean: "...FLARAJA!!!!"
Metal Man (GM): He fires an immensely massive ray of neutral energy at Traon. He then powers up again... and moves his arms out to his sides.
Charles Magellean: "...WALL!!!!"
Metal Man (GM): An energy wall appears, protecting him and Fayth from some damage.
Douglas saves his energy.
Charles Magellean: "Perhaps you are experts at defeating the people of this realm... but we do not play by those rules."
Alexia: "We can still give it a try, now can't we?"
Dragoshi: "...Oh, please. I am tired of listening to your overconfident ramblings. Aside from that... That barrier is worthless against this." *He aims the machinegun at the wall protecting Fayth, and fires a Tidal Blast Barrage at it.*
Metal Man (GM): Interestingly, the wall does not block it... no... it is far more insidious. It halves the damage of every one of those attacks. And all of them hit.
Fayth: "Some gentleman you are! I haven't even attacked yet!"
Dragoshi: "...Hmph. Hypocrite."
Fayth: "This is what you get... for hitting me!"
Metal Man (GM): Fayth raises up both his hands, and then causes twin whirlwind-shaped rips in reality to fly at Dragoshi.
Dragoshi: *miss, hit.* "...Meh."
Metal Man (GM): Then he rips open two portals at Dragoshi... who manages to resist them, mostly.
Digifanatic also continues to go at Fayth. "Cowardice is not for us." He rears back and goes for the Fire Punch to Fayth...
Metal Man (GM): Hit.
Digifanatic once again goes for a shot--let's try a Running Charge this time!
Metal Man (GM): Hit.
Digifanatic takes his two smacks with cautious stride and hangs out in front of Dragoshi, guarding as usual. "Drag, these are too big for you to be taken down."
Charles Magellean: "Hide behind your allies. Mine fight side-by-side."
Darkdata: "I think it's unfair... what with you having a advantage of terrain. So... why not change that?" *Grease Clearssong on random parts of the floor near Charles and Fayth.*
Metal Man (GM): It becomes extremely slippery.
Digifanatic: "He's not hiding, Charles."
Dragoshi: "...Yea. Don't be such an imbecile."
Digifanatic: "I'm protecting him..."
Dragoshi: "He is-Yep."
Darkdata: "Well with that... change."
Charles Magellean: "The only imbecile is the person talking to me in the middle of a battle."
Dragoshi: "...Doesn't that make you an imbecile too? As you clearly are talking during battle, therefore falling into a logic trap?"
Metal Man (GM): He shakes his head, as if thinking Dragoshi is too dumb to understand what he is saying.
Dragoshi: *Shakes his head, doing the same.*
Bonecrusher shoots 8 fireballs at Fayth.
Dragoshi: .oO(Time to be sarcastic.)
Harnit turns to Douglas and draws a circle in the air with his staff. The etch transforms into a clock and is then absorbed into the wind mage. The little boy then watches their two opponents closely. If any spells that look like they're fire, water, or wind element start to form he'd start to use the appropriate Energy Control. (Insight on Doug.)
Metal Man (GM): All but 2 hit.
Alexia: "Cover me." *She pulls a fist back and Overloads. Her speed is halved.*
Charles Magellean: "You remind me of when I used to unseal containers."
Dragoshi: "..." *Rolls eyes.*
Alexia: *Mindblast to Charles!*
Metal Man (GM): *MISS.* *Hit.*
Charles Magellean: "You have... damaged me." He raises a slightly cut finger. "Your life... is forfeit."
Metal Man (GM): He holds up his hands and glows red.
Charles Magellean: "FIN'TYAK!"
Dragoshi: "..." .oO(And, I really care why?) *His (currently) acid green eyes just scan what's going to happen next.*
Metal Man (GM): A massive red beam flies at Alexia, who is thrown three rooms away from the battle. Also, the wall disperses... as he gestures at Fayth.
Charles Magellean: "CURAJA!"
Metal Man (GM): Fayth is healed.
Alexia: *CRASH CRASH CRASH SPLAT.*
Metal Man (GM): The wall is down, though.
Dragoshi: "...Oh, you did NOT just do that."
Charles Magellean: "Did you really think I would go into battle unprepared?"
Dragoshi: "...Do you really take me for a-Oh, wait. You DO."
Douglas holds out his hand, and it forms a wind megabuster, which fires out 3 balls of wind energy into ... 'Charles'!
Dragoshi: "Like every other dumbass villain and their dumbass grandma."
Alexia Quick Revives.
Dragoshi: "Typical villainous behavior."
Metal Man (GM): Hit, miss, hit.
Traon stands up, recovers. "Bastard... Heathen..." he dusts himself off and looks at Charles. He arcs his weapon quickly up and a blast of crimson energy blasts from his weapon, his crimson wave.
Metal Man (GM): Crit, indeed.
Traon then charges with his anger turned towards his aggression. As he approaches he brings his weapon around, using momentum to smack Charles across the head.
Metal Man (GM): Miss.
Dragoshi: *Drago starts off with...* *A molotov! Which he launches at Mr. Megellax... Errr, Magellean in an attempt to burn him!*
Metal Man (GM): He stands and it misses... ...But the grease catches on fire.
Charles Magellean: "And you think I am the revolutionary?"
Dragoshi: "...Woah. Uhh... Let's try that again!" >_>;; *And again!*
Metal Man (GM): Hit, miss.
Dragoshi: *And, some thunderbolts and lightning very very frighteningly! Galileo! Galileo! Galil-Right. Anyway... Indignation to Charles.*
Metal Man (GM): Hit.
Dragoshi: *And, then an Ice Tornado! AT CHARLEH!* >_> *Fired from the machinegun of course...*
Alexia: *Not so much.*
Metal Man (GM): Miss.
Fayth: "So nice of you... to be so vile." He glows for a moment...
Metal Man (GM): He breaks a big piece out of reality, and then speaks in an ominous voice.
Dragoshi: "...Irony? Well, this is gonna be weird."
Metal Man (GM): Dragoshi's guns float out of his hands and open fire at him faster than he can react. Dragoshi takes some nasty damage. Digi cannot stop him. However, he quickly goes to remedy Digi being in the way of more normal attacks.
Fayth: "And now..." He glows again, surrounded by chaos energy... "CHAOS CONTROL!"
Metal Man (GM): He vanishes and winks in out hordes of times, mostly around Digi.
Digifanatic: *SLAMMED.* *Okay, that's too much damage--HE'S GONE.*
Metal Man (GM): He reappears, dusting off his hands.
Digifanatic: *But he Quick Revives.*
Fayth: "You picked the wrong person to tick off today."
Digifanatic: "Alright, I see what you're doing... But..."
Darkdata: "PMS Fayth?"
Dragoshi: .oO(You picked the wrong person to leave alive...)
Digifanatic: *Instead of Fayth, he concentrates on Charles and his Curaja insanities... He goes for the Icy Kick on Mr. Magellean.
Metal Man (GM): Hit.
Darkdata: "So... Charles... How do you feel about dancing?"
Charles Magellean: "I have a fedora for specifically that purpose."
Darkdata: *Chaos Dance Darksong.* "Then you should like... this!"
Metal Man (GM): *PING.*
Charles Magellean: "My mind is far too complex for you to understand."
Darkdata: "Bwahahah You fool! By reflecting that you have made your cure moves useless! It is a trap spell!"
Charles Magellean: "You, just like all of my foes, are trying to trick me. However, don't lose fayth... you shall see me dancing before the end of this battle."
Darkdata: >:( "You and your puns."
Charles Magellean: "You and your guns."
Darkdata: *Holds up a harp.* "Please try again."
Charles Magellean: *Raises an eyebrow.* "If you want me to insert cash into your mouth, you'll have to speak more robotically."
Darkdata: "Touche." *Globe of Silence!*
Metal Man (GM): Darkdata hits him with it... he silently shrugs.
Darkdata: "Well I have a feeling that did nothing!"
Darkdata: "So I guess I will set up a reflect spell..." *Mirror Clearsong.* "And this will reflect all your spells, no matter how powerful!"
Charles Magellean: *Miming motions.*
Harnit recasts Insight on Douglas yet again. before summoning up two ethereal flames which circle around the mage before flying at Digi and Bonecrusher. They would enter both targets and empower them.* (Insight on Doug, Flame's Embrace on Digi and Bonecrusher.)
Bonecrusher goes into a defensive stance.
Alexia charges up a Heat Beam and blasts at Charles.
Metal Man (GM): CRIT.
Alexia then defends in a Return Postage stance.
Charles Magellean: *Lots of miming movements, then... nothing???*
Dragoshi: .oO(How suspicious...)
Douglas throws two darts of wind at 'Charles'.
Metal Man (GM): Hit, hit.
Douglas then quickdraws Talon, and points it at Charles. "Chaos..." he mutters as it charges up, and then he yells "SPEAR!", causing a wave of orange chaos energy to soar out of the spear in the form of an eagle.
Metal Man (GM): Hit.
Traon dusts his shoulders and continues to look at Charles, not really paying attention to FAYTH. He again whips his weapon up releasing yet another crimson wave which blasts forward at Charles.
Metal Man (GM): Hit. He falls face forward, onto the ground... leaving Fayth.
Traon: "Bastard. Now... For the other." he whips around swinging his weapon like a bat at Fayth.
Digifanatic: "And we are going somewhere..."
Metal Man (GM): He dodges it.
Darkdata: "... I don't like this... It was too easy."
Dragoshi: "...Aye." *On to the contract! Drag then signs it as he violently explodes into hellfire... Which engulfs the area Drago was... Until!*
Liche Dragoshi: *A deathly silence, then a noise, then some more silence, as the hellfire disperses as a skeletal looking being in scorched earth-colored armor, wearing the same cloak as Drag's, except tattered and darkened, has no tophat, and is mighty skeletal lookin'. The figure then gets up.* "Ah. Magnifico."
Metal Man (GM): He's face-down 2 feet away.
Liche Dragoshi: *The liche quickly pulls out his scythe, then attempts to flip kick Charles, using the scythe to gain extra reach.*
Metal Man (GM): He's... been defeated, yet Dragoshi kicks him around anyway.
Fayth: "And now... it is time to create utter chaos!"
Digifanatic: .oO(Insult to injury...)
Metal Man (GM): Fayth powers up... but this time he splits in two, revealing a massive black hole. Charles is suddenly revived--then big holes appear out of the nearby walls and dimensional continuum. A Pokemon trainer flies out of one of the warps.
Liche Dragoshi: "...I have a fee-...What the fuh?"
Metal Man (GM): Then Fayth simultaneously explodes... revealing...
Harnit: "This is a twist..."
Liche Dragoshi: "Very much so."
The Void: "Hahahahaaaaaaa!!!!! It is time to cause chaos again!" He fires a blast of energy which causes the nearby area to destabilize.
Darkdata: "Do the random thing!"
Liche Dragoshi: "...Hiya."
Darkdata: "It's much more fun."
Harnit: "What's this?!"
Liche Dragoshi: "...In retrospect, I think Fayth effed up. Badly."
Metal Man (GM): The Void, or at least, what appears to be him (Same dark cloud appearance, red eyes) then faces the Questers, and nods. The mute field vanishes from Charles, who then calmly returns to battle stance.
Liche Dragoshi: "...huh?"
Douglas quickdraws Frozen Hatred if possible... it's not technically a weapon due to not having any stats..
Charles Magellean: "Let us finish this battle..."
Liche Dragoshi: "Let's..." *Yea, due to having no eyes, his sockets now glow acid green. Creepy.*
Charles Magellean: "I shall start... with YOU!"
Liche Dragoshi: "Try it. I dare you."
Charles Magellean: "...CURAJA!!! One for me... one for YOU!"
Metal Man (GM): The burning white light goes to heal... the undead Dragoshi. Nobody said he could not be cured of his condition!
Arx A small kid suddenly falls out of one of the portals, crumpling in a heap before he gets up. "Huh? Where am I? This doesn't look like Kanaan..." He shakes his head a bit, and he smooths a couple of slight spikes in his hair out. This kid sees the fight going on, and he tilts his head. "...Oh, great..." That's when he starts rummaging through his satchel. "Come on, where did I put you?"
Digifanatic: .oO(Wow... we're getting a lot of new folks lately. Hmm. More is better.)
Harnit: "Aah... New person, if you're not with Charles attack him! A life-or-death thing right now!" *The mage points to Charles.*
Metal Man (GM): The spell heals Dragoshi, destroying his invincibility and the fact that he's dead.
Dragoshi: *Well, he turns back to normal then. Ker-poof.* "...Oh. You did NOT just do that."
Metal Man (GM): Another portal appears...
Dragoshi: "...Remind me to this." *Makes charades of motions involving horrible deaths.* "...Also, do we have enough portals as is?"
Arx: "Uh... okay..." He pulls out a small red and white sphere, and tosses it to the ground. "Light up the night sky, burn down all before you! Ignite, Sparkfire!" In a flash of light, his partner was there, with her flames blazing brightly. "Nii-tah!"
Digifanatic: .oO(Well, then this shall be interesting. I just hope he doesn't take my story too badly...)
Golbez: "...I stepped through this portal, half-hoping it wasn't you people... but lo' and behold," he says as he steps out of it.
Douglas turns. "Charles!"
Harnit: "Ah... Hello, other new person! ... Charles?"
Golbez: "Who created the portal to my realm?"
Dragoshi: "...What the- Hey. You're that guy from before. ...Man. This is getting weird."
Douglas attempts to toss Frozen Hatred to Golbez, if he accepts. "Help us get rid of this man who continues to scorn your name!"
Charles Magellean: "Evil servant of Zemus... you shall not triumph here!"
The Void: "I did, of course."
Dragoshi: *Glares at 'Charles.'*
The Void: "It's my hobby."
Locos Docos (GM): Golbez looks from left and right... and sees Charles... and then The Void.
Golbez: "I said it once and I'll say it once more..."
Darkdata: "... Random... Nice."
Golbez: "I want NOTHING more to do with this dimension."
Dragoshi: "...Yea. But, apparently... It just keeps pulling you back in."
The Void: "Reminds me of addictive substances."
Locos Docos (GM): He turns around... and sees the Questers.
Charles Magellean: "You can never escape from the justice of true Lunarians, fake!"
Dragoshi: "...What do you know of justice... parasite?" *Says this with a condescending, hateful, and all-around agitated tone of voice.*
Golbez: "Oh of COURSE you people are at the heart of this matter..." *He takes his helmet off... and throws it into the still open portal to his dimension.*
Charles Magellean: "The long and short which you conveniently ignored while acting as judge, jury, and executioner."
Arx: "What under Rayquaza's cerulean sky is going on here?!" He growls, while his fiery pony moves to be in a protective stance in front of Arx.
The Void: "I like this." *He eats some popcorn.*
Locos Docos (GM): The face reveals to be... Charles!?
Dragoshi: "...I'd ask for some popcorn, but this has jumped the burning fence of confusion and inanity."
Charles Magellean: "Behold, the fake who steals my name."
Dragoshi: *Looks at the REAL Charles.* "...See what I mean? ...Hmm."
Harnit: "What's going on?!"
Dragoshi: "...Why should I believe you?"
Maester Magellean: "Charles... I've forsaken that name. My existence is now Maester Magellean."
Metal Man (GM): Dragoshi cannot tell if he can believe it or not.
Charles Magellean: "You have forgotten all of your priorities. Behold... the Bounty Hunters are before you. It is high time they be defeated... to end the suffering they have caused to both of us."
Douglas looks over Frozen Hatred again.
Dragoshi: "Can't tell if this is a facade or not. Also, will you stop calling us that?"
Charles Magellean: "Only when you admit that I am the real Charles, and he... is an illusion of The Void."
Maester Magellean: "I've made remarkable progress since I pushed the Lunarian Moon back into my home dimension. Already, I have activated the Crystals of Water and Wind and at the same time be responsible for the slaughter of tens of thousands of Solarians across several continents of Earth."
Dragoshi: *In response to the fake Charles.* "How would you like it if I dropped down to your pitiful level and called you names? ...Interesting."
Charles Magellean: "It wouldn't hold a candle to an illusion of myself committing genocide."
Maester Magellean: "And there's... yet so many more to kill." *He bellows into a short, insane laugh.*
Charles Magellean: "Even if I ask for a few to die, I would never demand an entire race to die. That... is sick to the core, and not my way."
Douglas: "! Magellean, you can't. You need to let go."
Dragoshi: "No, no, no. Sick to the core is, well..."
Maester Magellean: "How I've even enjoyed decapitating the children... all because they had the knowledge of the Solarian way."
Dragoshi: "Demanding that not an entire RACE would die... That an entire WORLD-, no... An entire... I'll let you figure that out."
Charles Magellean: "A vile being, this mockery is. Let us forget our differences and destroy him before he chooses our race to die next!"
Arx: "Wait... you... killed children?!" He blinks, having never heard of such kind of crimes. "How... how could you?!"
Dragoshi: "...Also... I am a little sickened by the part of decapitating children..."
Harnit: "Are all people named Charles... Insane?"
Dragoshi: "...Apparently so."
The Void: "Most likely."
Maester Magellean: "It has to be done... for what they did to me in my youth. The Giant of Babel will soon be activated, Earth will be conquered, and I have the thanks of you people of finally staying away from my dimension."
Darkdata: "I would say... yes."
Dragoshi: "...The Giant of wha-?"
Charles Magellean: "That? You use that to kill innocents?" *Shakes his head.* "Truly you know not of the Lunaris Ferraneum... unless it is to be hosted atop the corpses of those you killed, Re'natak!"
Locos Docos (GM): MM turns around... and steps up to the fake Charles.
Charles Magellean: "It is time I put you in your place, illusion."
Locos Docos (GM): He walks a few circles around this Charles... looking up and down repeatedly.
Dragoshi: "..." *Stands back.* .oO(What a scene to watch... And, me without tea. Dammit.)
Douglas frowns and shakes his head. .oO(We MUST kill them BOTH)
Metal Man (GM): He rotates to see MM, that same creepy rage look in his eyes. He even goes to pick up... the Sardis Mongul diary.
Dragoshi: *Checks to see if the tea has somehow, MIRACULOUSLY survived this chaos.*
Arx: "Gah... SOMEONE tell me what's going on here!" The little kid screams, as the flames of the fiery horse get more intense.
Maester Magellean: "Amazing. This dimension had so much desire to keep me here, it has actually made a copy of me."
Dragoshi: "...Yea. That's pretty disturbing. ...In a way."
Digifanatic: *to the new kid.* "Trust me... you got in here at a very ill time."
Dragoshi: "Yet it's ridiculously sad."
Charles Magellean: "I am no copy... you are." He picks up the book and reads from it again. "Those who let their emotions overcome them appear to create phantom monsters of themselves! And it was my emotions... which created you. Begone!"
Traon: .oO("You, the one inside of me. What do you make of this?" 'I see two possible threats. Keep your guard up.' "Understood.") he watches the two Charles, the fake one and the real one and keeps his curious eye going.
Darkdata: "Void, you sell copies of this chaos to other worlds... don't you?" *in a joking voice.*
Harnit looks over at the pokemon trainer..* "If I knew I'd tell..."
The Void: "You should see the profit margins I made in Sonic's home dimension."
Dragoshi: .oO(Hmph. These imbeciles shall slaughter eachother for me. Perfect.) *Checks if the tea survived.*
The Void: "Time travel rocks!"
Dragoshi: "...You lucky bastiche" >_>
Maester Magellean: "Only two people ever wanted to be like me before I throw away my original existence... the traitor that stands with the Questers..." *he points to Douglas.* "...and..."
Metal Man (GM): Yes, the tea survived. Apparently, The Void brings along a mean tea set. ... *Dragoshi acquires: VORPAL TEAPOT.* No tea in it. But it's... razor sharp. Enough to slice someone's fingers off.
Dragoshi: *Sharp enough to cut someone with?*
Maester Magellean: "Well... well... well. The AI that begged me to stay in this dimension is now yelling at me and telling me *I'M* fake. How is life being as Charles Magellean been for you... Trevor?"
Dragoshi: "And, the plot thickens. ...Trevor? What does Trevor have do with this?"
Douglas pricks his ears. "AI, Charles, Trevor..."
Charles Magellean: "It is you who are the fake, traitor to the Lunarians. If you are the 'real' Charles, then the world is better off not knowing; for I am far closer to the true you and you are. You will not stop me, for... my dice are loaded."
Metal Man (GM): He takes out a fragment of the red emerald. He dangles it at Maester Magellean.
Dragoshi: "...What the..."
Charles Magellean: "This can singlehandedly seal away this fake... forever, ending this madness."
Douglas: "Don't seal him away! I need his soul!"
Charles Magellean: "..." He gets angry. "...My fake... he wishes to kill us both. We cannot tarry about souls, failed ward."
Douglas: "Then kill him back!"
Dragoshi: "...To give to death? I thought Death, yanno, decided to keep away from us after that last mission."
Darkdata: *Quietly to the void.* "You're going to make a killing with this one."
Harnit: "Why don't we just... Not kill anyone?"
Dragoshi: "...That NEVER works, Harnit. ...Okay, almost never, but still."
The Void: *whisper.* "I spent the last year or two planning this... heh heh heh."
Douglas: "Fine, Harnit. I see you want to do away with my soul, then."
Harnit: "N-no! I just... Arrrgh."
The Void: "Oh, there IS a peaceful solution."
Locos Docos (GM): Maester Magellean raises his armored hand. The pendant around him glows red...
The Void: "But I'll let them settle it."
Locos Docos (GM): ...The red emerald fragment turns into a chunk of coal.
Douglas ponders. .oO(Aren't unsent just souls themselves?)
Darkdata: "... hahaha. Guess things can't end that easily."
Maester Magellean: "Let me make this simple for you."
Darkdata: *Quietly to the void.* "Did you get everything before this?"
Charles Magellean: "Just what I'd expect from an illusionist. Mere... parlor tricks." He pockets it, and then goes to his second weapon. He takes out the Star Rod. "Did you really think I, Charles Magellean, would stop my collection of relics just because I had a few rough spots? No... I dare say you have been slacking."
Maester Magellean: "If you..." *he points to Charles.* "...you..." *he points to Void.* "...or any of you..." *he points to all of the Questers.* "..open a portal to my dimension again... after I conquer Earth, I WILL be coming here from all sides."
Dragoshi: "...Wait a damn second."
Digifanatic: .oO(Conquer Earth? Oh, as in back to Charles' time?)
Dragoshi: "...How the HELL did you get that rod?"
The Void: "Ah, but Charles... that's exactly what would be interesting to me. Charles... II? I? Your names give me a headache."
Dragoshi: "...Yea. It is confusing, isn't it?"
Locos Docos (GM): He walks up to The Void.
The Void: "Ah! I should ask for your autograph. All those people I sent at... whoever is the real Charles... were expensive. Ruvyn demanded he have the chaos emeralds for it, even! What a nut."
Dragoshi: "...Yea. Well, form what I'm hearing." *from. "..." *Puts the teapot and other stuff away. Eh. :/*
The Void: *He casually rearranges molecules in the air around him.*
Dragoshi: *Pulls out the 4 button and casually twirls it on his finger.*
The Void: "Huh. I didn't know people realized that button was cursed. I need better hidden curses."
Dragoshi: *Continues twirling it.*
Maester Magellean: "I have no sanity left in my entire being. If you or anyone here makes a portal to my world again, I will..."
The Void: "Eat ice cream?"
Maester Magellean: *whisper.* *whisper.* *whisper.*
Douglas coughs, and whispers to himself. "Ok, Death... If an Unsent is truly just a living soul, then you can come now and get him... Hurry up already."
Maester Magellean: *Whispering* "Use all the power of my existence to permanently close the holes of this dimension. No more imbalance.. no more... chaos."
The Void: *...Looks stunned, for once, but then shakes his head.* "Okay, I... won't do that. That would be... bad. ...As long as you leave this realm alone in turn! Because otherwise the people above me might bother you instead... and I don't want to be punished for their love of balance." *Shakes fist at the sky.* "Stupid Tirk. Why did you have to learn such a high level of ascension? For what purpose are these 'time' things you speak of?"
Maester Magellean: "Well now... I managed to spook even The Void..." *He turns to face the Questers.*
The Void: "...You can't scare the Questers! I tried. I blew up reality. They'll run headfirst into a spike wall if you attempt to scare them with it. They are... irrational."
Douglas blinks, and looks at his hand with the invisible mark.
Dragoshi: *Would walk over to Void and whispers to him.* "What did he say?"
The Void: *Whisper back.* "He said... he would cancel all the reruns of VG's failed cooking show!"
Maester Magellean: "Remember my conditions: I rule my world without you interfering, and I stay out of the affairs of this dimension. This is my only warning."
Dragoshi: "...Right." .oO(Must be something horrible)
Charles Magellean: "Bah! Your genocide must be stopped, at any cost, fake! Your warning means nothing to me!"
Darkdata: *Quietly to the void.* "Can you summon death here?"
The Void: *Back.* "..." :)
Douglas mutters quietly, softly pleading to summon Exdeath.
Metal Man (GM): Ex-death? The Void's the closest thing to that.
Darkdata: *Quietly to the void.* "I guess the better question would be, would you."
The Void: *Back.* "...Maybe."
Douglas softly pleads to summon DIOLIZE, then... through his mark, I suppose.
Maester Magellean: "..." *He snaps his finger, and he transforms his attire to a karate gi. He faces the fake Charles in a Muay Thai stance.*
Metal Man (GM): Both Charles and The Void turn to Douglas. They speak at the same time.
The Void: "We're right here."
Charles Magellean: "Bonehead. Er... no I'm not. Evil trickster." *Slaps Douglas, then gets into his Tai Kwan Leap stance.* "This ends today, genocider!"
Dragoshi: "..." *Would watch.*
The Void: "...Anyway, I think I'll take a trip to North Carolina."
Maester Magellean: "This should've been done a long time ago, Trevor."
The Void: "I have an appointment with a laundromat. Socks... must be stolen!"
Dragoshi: "...'K. Have fun."
Metal Man (GM): He vanishes.
Dragoshi: "...Wai-...Dammit. I had a question."
Darkdata: *Quietly to the void.* "Would you do it if I gave you gender changing Candies?" *This time in a joking voice.* ..:p
The Void: *Pops back for a moment.* "I stole the recipe when you weren't loooooking..." :p *Vanish again.*
Charles Magellean: "With those hecklers silenced, I can destroy you once and for all."
Metal Man (GM): He motions to Aetos.
Charles Magellean: "Give me my hammer, failed Ward. I must destroy the one who imitates me."
Darkdata: "Great. The Void has gender changing candy. I am going to be lynched by 5 or more worlds."
Locos Docos (GM): Maester splits into two after-images and the images fade away...
Metal Man (GM): Darkdata begins receiving hate mail from... Rigel 7?
Dragoshi: "...I suggest hiding."
Douglas throws Frozen Hatred to Trevor, harshly. "Summon Death himself to Maester's unsent soul!"
Douglas blinks. "Go after him, then!"
Darkdata: *Sigh.* *Reads Mail.*
Arx: "...So... how did I end up here? Where the hell am I?"
Charles Magellean: "..." He turns to Aetos, shedding a tear. "I knew you would come through for me, Young Ward." Then he faces Maester, holding the hammer over his shoulder. "Your lies will not last, fake... no matter how much brute force you try to make them true with."
Metal Man (GM): Arx's pokedex beeps.
Dex: "Updated to version 2.3.SSQ. Information database increased."
Arx He digs out his pokÃ©dex and holds it up. "What the..?"
Douglas mutters. .oO(The fake Charles is more of a Charles than Charles is a Charles!)
Dex: "This is another realm. There are a number of different things here. Professor Oak is also here. He can explain these things to you soon enough."
Arx: "But... Professor Oak's been dead for three years!"
Metal Man (GM): The two Charleses begin fighting... so fast one can only see an extreme flurry of punches and kicks. Bits and pieces of the room are destroyed--they wink in and out of sight. The Void probably left for fear of being hit in the crossfire, as debris narrowly misses the Questers repeatedly.
Arx: "Nii! Should I be worried about the flying and disappearing stuff?" Arx crouches, minimizing his form.
Metal Man (GM): *BLAM* *SMACK* *BOOOM.*
Dex: "You may wish to leave this room. It appears they are both intent on destroying one another--and possibly this tower."
Darkdata: "Well, It's time to make our leave!"
Metal Man (GM): *BLAM* There's a glimpse of Maester punching Charles. *SMACK* Charles boots the head of Maester. *BOOM* Both of them fire opposing ranged attacks.
Darkdata: "Everyone go go go!"
Dragoshi: *Leaves za room!*
Metal Man (GM): The way to the hallway remains open. *BLAM* *SMACK* *BOOM.*
Arx He nods, and then hops on his horse. "Let's get out of here, Sparkfire... Agility!" The horse rears up, before starting to go to a gallop. Once she's reached her top speed, she flashes and flames trail behind her almost like a jet exhaust, causing her to move even quicker than she normally can.
Digifanatic hightails it out of there.
Metal Man (GM): The Questers see one final move:
Metal Man (GM): Charles takes out his hammer and blocks a fearsome punch... only for Maester to KO him with a roundhouse kick. He flies through a number of things, creating a mess as the tower itself is now heavily damaged.
Arx simply rides his pokÃ©mon out of the room, and out of the tower, going as fast as possible.
Traon follows out.
Douglas debates chasing after Trevor..
Metal Man (GM): The Questers are now in an adjacent room.
Dragoshi: *Just zooming out of hte room at max speeds... Which he is now in. So he stops.*
Locos Docos (GM): Maester transform backs into the Golbez armor... and vanishes again...
Douglas: "! Damnit..."
Darkdata: "We can blame death for being late."
Metal Man (GM): The KO'd Charles is attended to by... SIMBER1.0.
Locos Docos (GM): ...Only to appear in the doorway that is now blocking the Questers' exit.
Douglas: "Charles' soul will be put to rest soon-- Uh oh."
SIMBER1.0: "...I'm sorry. He just... sort of overstepped his boundaries." *He drags Charles off.*
Dragoshi: "...I see."
Maester Magellean: "Trevor was always overzealous... but I believe my point was made. It would please me to not see any of you set foot into my dimension, know what I mean?"
Douglas: "Maester, your time has come, and Death calls for your soul! You have to rest!"
Locos Docos (GM): Maester once again splits into two images and they vanish...
Douglas: "If need be, myself and Death will be forced to follow you into your dimension.-- Ugh..."
Locos Docos (GM): ...He now appears behind Aetos, holding both his hands above and below Aetos's head.
SIMBER1.0: *Watches from the doorway, intent on understanding the events that happened.*
Maester Magellean: "I won't be satisfied until my mind comes to a peaceful state of mind by killing all the Solarians. Please don't make me snap your head off so one could see the bones hanging out from under it."
Douglas turns around swiftly. "Give it up! Killing every single Solarian will only cause you to crave more! Unsent have no conscience! You have to understand."
SIMBER1.0: "Hm... interesting... even if this Charles who was defeated is fake... he seems to share similar intentions. I must log this..." He begins writing.
Maester Magellean: "I will make my point so even you will understand this, Aetos. Death never came to me when I died on the Moon. Attempt to follow me... and I'll decapitate you."
Douglas is speechless, wondering why exactly Death didn't take Charles when he did die.
Maester Magellean: "Never follow me again. I cut of all ties to this dimension as soon as I pushed the Moon into my own dimension. Understand that, former ward. Now... have I made my point clear to all of you, Questers?"
SIMBER1.0: "I just have one question, having been mostly a bystander in this mess. You. Illogical ghost being. Why did you even join the Questers? The more I know about you the less it makes sense for you to call yourself Locos Docos..."
Arx: "I... don't get what's going on..." He dismounts the fiery horse, and idly pets her head.
SIMBER1.0: "The Void has said people change, but I don't believe him. I have never changed."
Dex: "Very few people do at first."
Dragoshi: "...Heh. Yep."
Dex: "Professor Oak can make sense of it... assuming him being alive isn't too much of a shock."
Maester Magellean: "Good. Now tell your gorilla fighter Julian the same and tell him that the Charles that was here was Trevor, and he was defeated by the real Charles Magellean that goes by the name of Maester Magellean from here on."
Metal Man (GM): The warp home is open to the ship.
Arx: "...Where does this portal lead?"
Dex: "To the home base on this planet."
Arx: "Is that where... Oak is?"
Douglas: "Our Quester Ship Seeker. Oak is elsewhere."
Dex: "...Will be. A call has been sent out for him to visit."
Maester Magellean: "Finally, I'm back in my own dimension and never open a portal to my world."
Arx: "Okay." he withdraws Sparkfire's pokÃ©ball, and returns her to it, before taking a deep breath and braving the portal to the base.
Douglas: "Hey. We didn't even do it." *Mutters.*
Digifanatic heads for the warp...
SIMBER1.0: "Don't worry. I have a new plaything now." *He chuckles oddly.*
Maester Magellean: "...Do not sass me."
Douglas goes into the warp, without looking back to Charles.
Locos Docos (GM): He covers the head of Douglas and fiercely turns the head to one of the sides... snapping his neck.
Metal Man (GM): He manages to do it in time, and Aetos would revive one life lower.
Dragoshi: *Eyes dull from their hatred-filled acid green, to their somewhat frightened dull orange.* "...This has been an... Interesting mission."
Maester Magellean: "I have been pushed beyond my sanity. Don't push me further." *He splits into two images, they vanish, and he reappears at the portal back in the battled room.*
Douglas: "You sicken me, abomination." *in the warp as he leaves.*
Dragoshi: *Enters the warp, not saying a word.*
SIMBER1.0: "Again, I ask you--why did you join the Questers? Why did you call yourself Locos Docos? It would make so much more sense if there was a clearly conceived identity before you went mad."
Maester Magellean: "I yearned for power to take revenge against the Solarians that ravaged my world... the courage to be able to face them for what they did to unstable my mind. Now, as I stand here, without a life and filled with a great energy, I have renounced so much..and have transcended equally as much."
SIMBER1.0: "Then I shall give you one warning... and no, this is not a threat, nor does it have to do with me. Beware the Second Magellean Military..."
Metal Man (GM): He then goes to just cleaning the place up. Sane or not, the Charles imitation, or perhaps Trevor as he should be called, has a place to run.
Maester Magellean: "...Then pray to what God you pray to that they do not attempt to come to my dimension. *He enters the portal, ready to slaughter more thousands and activate another crystal."
Metal Man (GM): He watches MM leave, and then the battered... Trevor... walks in.
Trevor: .oO(So be it... Charles has forsaken his true self for lies. At least...) "Well well, it loooks like my plan succeeded! I got all the loose ends tied up!"
SIMBER1.0: "You also got beaten up."
Trevor: "Who cares?"
SIMBER1.0: "We can't take over the universe if your head exists in a different dimension than your body."
Trevor: "I'll think of something. Now fetch me Coca Cola!"
SIMBER1.0: *Smacks Trevor.* "It's my turn to do something outrageous and stupid."
Arx appears on the ship, looking around. "Okay, where am I now?"
Digifanatic: *walks over to Arx.* "Hello, kid... I saw you enter." .oO(Okay, do I tell him or not?)
Dragoshi: *Leans against the wall, and watches the two.*
Digifanatic: .oO(Nah, where he's from they probably aren't even aware...)
Arx: "Uhhh... hi?" He looks at him, blinking. This kid was short, apparently.
Digifanatic: "Alright, here's the deal. You came in at a very strange point in our work here, to be honest. I'm not saying anything against it, cause it was probably against your will on the timing part. And, obviously, you can't control that."
Arx: "I'll say. I was walking through the fields, then suddenly I fall through a hole and now I'm here..."
Digifanatic: "Sounds like about 75% of everyone else that's here... Trust me, you're not alone in that department."
Darkdata: "I fell into a scrying pool."
Arx pulls out his wallet, and opens it up to find a whole hell of a lot of coins. "Aww, what the hell!? I had thirty thousand pokÃ©dollars in here! That was my mom's life savings!"
Darkdata slams Douglas with a giant anime hammer.
Dragoshi: "And, I... Well strange crap happened involving a vortex and disruptive thunder, but meh."
Digifanatic: "So, anyways, yeah, you're in the whole Pokemon thing, huh? Well... I overheard the Oak thing--bits and pieces--but you wanna know who's also here? Mewtwo. That's right. He's here as well."
Arx: "Mewtwo? I've never heard of a PokÃ©mon named that..."
Digifanatic: "Really? I could have sworn that that name had passed through your mind at least once before now."
Arx: "Yeah... never heard of it. But, if it's anything like Mew, I'll bet it's powerful." He puts his wallet away. "So, explain to me where I'm at."
Digifanatic: "Oh yeah. The names are no coincidence."
Arx: "And *also* explain to me why the greatest PokÃ©mon biologist EVER isn't dead."
Digifanatic: "Well, we have all come to fight as a part of this group from many different places and time periods. It's a strange thing, but fare with me on this."
Arx: "O... kay..."
Digifanatic: "Oak happened to be one of the folks that assisted the group. He's just from an era slightly before yours."
Arx: "But, where I come from, he's been dead for three years. In fact, his grandson teaches at Ivysaur Academy!"
Digifanatic: "Like I said, an era before yours. You came here one year, he came here some year before the one you did."
Arx: "And where is 'here'?"
Douglas clears his throat.
Digifanatic: "Well... again, it's strange. Normally we fight on another planet but we've come to this one to stop a group we've had a grudge with for a bit."
Douglas: "An nearly inhospitable planet run by some canon Saga people." *Whistle.* *Walks away to find Metal.*
Digifanatic: "So we all hopped on--okay, that was random--"
Dragoshi: *Follows Douglas.*
Arx: "O... kay..."
Digifanatic: *whispers.* "Disregard that statement he made for now." *normal volume.* "So, yeah, we originally fought on the planet Nintendus, but this planet is called Genetia. Following me on this?"
Arx: "Wait... Nintendus... like... Nintendo?"
Darkdata: "Arx, do you have a gameboy?" *Has been doing a bit of reading of realms.*
Digifanatic: "Oh, that's your name?"
Arx: "...right, okay... and let me guess, on that planet there's a red-shirted plumber who eats mushrooms and saves princesses?" He tilts his head, and pulls out a DS. "...wait a minute, how do you know my name?"
Darkdata: "You said it in battle while you were talking to your pokÃ©mon. I managed to hear you over the chaos."
Arx: "I... don't think I did, but oh well..." He looks at Digi. "Yeah, I'm Arx Semallion, from Pidgey Town."
Digifanatic: "Well... anyways, Arx, if you're interested, my name's Ian Hoffman. Pleased to meet you, and I hope you settle into here easily."
Darkdata: "A town full of birds, must be fun to clean up after..."
Digifanatic: "I'll let you talk to Oak and manage all of that on your own. Good luck."
Darkdata: "Yes, Oak would be better at this, just don't let him exper-- I mean you have nothing to worry about!" ^^;;
Arx: "...Okay..." He pulls up his pokÃ©dex again. "Apparently, this thing's more intelligent than it was when I was still in Kanaan... PokÃ©dex, find Professor Oak."
Digifanatic heads over to Darkdata and leans in close, whispering: "I need to tell you something right now."
Darkdata: *Whs.* "What is it?" whispering.*
Digifanatic: *whispering.* "If you think he can hear you and I talking, please call me Ian. Him and I are starting off on a good note, and I don't want our backgrounds screwing it up, even if he understands."
Darkdata: "Ah, it's okay Lan, oh, and don't forget that you agreed to try my new kitchen creations."
Digifanatic: *whispering.* "Lan? Wha? And when did I agree? Not that I'm doubting you..."
Darkdata: *whispering.* "You might want to agree, I have a copy of Tacey. T's cookbook. I need a willing test subject to try my non genetical deserts."
Digifanatic: *whispering.* "Maybe, but not certainly. I'll keep it in mind. See you later." *walks away and up to his room.*
