Super Smash Quest - Story - Chapter 379: Pipes of Death
Date: June 27th & 28th, 2007.
Trivia: This is one of the only missions where all the Questers died, and one of the last if not THE last mission Wolfman GMed for SSQ 1.
Darkdata is in the kitchen.
Alexia is still trying to break into Julian's room, on her third day of sleep deprivation.
Darkdata: "Hmm, what to mess with today..?"
Digifanatic is walking back into R&R after being wherever for the past while.
Alexia: "SIMBER, open the door... I beseech you..."
SIMBER: *to Darkdata.* "I am unsure. Your room is currently dirty."
Digifanatic: *flips on the television for now.*
SIMBER: *to Alexia.* "Access denied, number 188,329,478,438,587."
Darkdata: "Dirty? But I am never in my room."
Wolfman (GM): Hope Digi likes The Young And The Heartless.
Alexia: *with quiet desperation.* "SIMBER, if you don't open that door, oxygen or not, I will come out of this room and kill you with a fire axe, do you hear me?"
Digifanatic: "Oh, boy, soap operas..."
SIMBER: *to Darkdata.* "Then you should enter it now and then."
Dragoshi: "...I don't think it's possible to kill a hologram with a fireaxe."
Digifanatic: *the above not in a very enthusiastic tone.*
Dragoshi: "Or a handaxe."
Darkdata: "Fine SIMBER, however if this is a joke..."
Dragoshi: "Or a killer axe."
Darkdata heads to his room.
Dragoshi: "...Or any axe for that matter."
Wolfman (GM): A big alert is going through HQ!
Digifanatic: .oO(Thank goodness... nothing on TV.) *walks into the Big Room.*
Dragoshi: "...Huh." *Runs over to the Big Room.*
Darkdata: "So much for that, heads to the big room."
Alexia finally gives up and staggers into the Big Room.
Wolfman (GM): Those that enter see Professor Oak working the controls, and Wolfman sitting patiently for those that come in.
Alexia: *mumbling.* "Can any of you pick locks?"
Digifanatic: "Odd... Metal's not here."
Oak: "This is one of those times that I wish you were tall again!" *keeps on trying to figure out what's going on.*
Wolfman: "Metal has had too much of his soda. He's currently sleeping it off."
Alexia grabs Digi by the collar and shakes him. "Julian's room! Take me into Julian's room!"
Digifanatic: "What, Alexia?"
Wolfman: "That doesn't leave that many other familiar people with the controls here."
Digifanatic: "Oh, that..."
Oak: "Now now, you two, control yourself or I'll send my Pikachu at you."
Digifanatic: "You see, I would like to, but this is Julian we're talking about..."
Oak: *finally hits the right button.* "Ah, here we go!"
Wolfman (GM): The view screen is coming down.
Alexia: "Digi, please, I'll assume the blame myself... just let me in..."
Digifanatic: "Had it have been someone who's less likely to beat someone up, there would be a better chance that I would oblige... What did you leave in his room?"
Wolfman: "What you are seeing... well, most of you anyway..." *glares at Alexia.* "...is one of the important fortresses of the Water Land within the Mushroom Kingdom."
Alexia: "The Wolfos hide."
Digifanatic: "It's his, right? I'm just checking."
Wolfman: "This fortress helps control and manage the water flow."
Digifanatic: *trying to juggle between listening to both Wolf and Alexia...*
Alexia: *through her teeth.* "Yes, but I need to borrow it."
Wolfman: "However, the flowing isn't... well, going. If possible, I would like you guys to investigate."
Digifanatic: *back to Wolf.* "Sure."
Wolfman looks to Alexia now. "Did you understand your request, or should I repeat myself?"
Dragoshi: "...I should also refrain from using Indignation while I'm there right? Seeing as it's an area of Water Land and whatnot... Well, that and I'm assuming there's a lot of water in there..."
Alexia: "Water flow investigation. Digi, please, let me in there..."
Wolfman: "Keep your Indignation under control, and use it when required."
Digifanatic: .oO(Dang, I'm screwed.) "Fine, if you're willing to take the blame."
Oak: *hits the Warp button.* "This warp should get you into the Fortress."
Digifanatic: "Who knows. He may be out."
Wolfman (GM): It's not a portal this time, though.
Dragoshi: "Same for Ice Tornado?"
Digifanatic: "I haven't seen him lately."
Wolfman (GM): It's a classic SMB3 pipe.
Darkdata jumps into the pipe. "Well this is differeeeeee..."
Alexia: "Yes, I'm willing to shoulder the blame."
Digifanatic: "Wolf, do you mind if I just assist in Alexia's bit for a minute?"
Wolfman: "I do mind."
Digifanatic: "Alexia, can you get it after this bit?"
Wolfman: "I believe Julian is trying to find his Agent in person right now."
Dragoshi: "...Huh." *Walks over to the warp pipe, and jumps into it.*
Alexia suddenly whips around and points a quivering finger at Wolf. "Y-YOU! YOU'RE CONSPIRING AGAINST ME! Do you not realize how desperate I am right now?!"
Digifanatic: "I'll try to help after we complete the mission, if it is allowed."
Wolfman: "To quote something I've read in a book in my realm, 'Patience, young padawan.'"
Oak: "...I think you two should enter that pipe soon. I can't keep it up forever."
Alexia: *calmly.* "Wolf, I am willing to do anything needed to continue sleeping."
Digifanatic: "Alright. After this, okay, Lex?"
Dragoshi: *Good thing Dragoshi already went down the pipe.*
Wolfman: "I'll find a sedative for you after this mission then. Get going."
Digifanatic: "Okay. Hopefully that'll work."
Alexia takes her gun out and points it directly into Wolfman's face. "No."
Digifanatic: *makes a break for the pipe and leaps in!*
Wolfman: "What do you intend to do here Alexia? Kill me?"
Alexia: "No, but I can't guarantee my actions after three days without sleep. Open the door to Julian's room and we're okay."
Oak: *whisper to Wolf.*
Wolfman: *whisper to Oak.*
Oak: "SIMBER, open the door to Julian's room."
Wolfman (GM): The door is open.
Wolfman: "...are you happy now?"
Wolfman (GM): The others emerge from the warp pipe. Their surroundings don't seem like it's a fortress though. It's more... lots of grass, with a salty breeze going around. Alexia would see the door to Julian's room is open.
Alexia: "This had damn well better not be a trick..."
Darkdata: "Nothing like an ocean breeze, even though it may not be an ocean.
Dragoshi: *Lowers the hood of his cloak.* "Yep..."
Alexia keeps her gun trained on Wolf as she heads up to Julian's room.
Wolfman (GM): The door closes before Alexia can get there in time. There were a few hallways that twisted and turned, so the gun wasn't kept on Wolfman.
Alexia: "...C'mon, SIMBER, open the door..."
Darkdata: "So, where do me go from here?"
Wolfman (GM): The Quester mission group's dexes beep.
Dragoshi: "I don't know..."
Digifanatic: *opens Dex.*
Dragoshi: *Pulls out his Dex.* "Hello, Dragoshi here."
Darkdata: *PW Ringtune on dex.* "Hehe." *Opens.*
Oak: "I apologize... it's been awhile since we've worked the controls. You guys are actually two miles north of the fortress!"
Dragoshi: "Oh. no problem. Just tell us where-...Oh. So we just go south, then?"
Oak: "And with Alexia being a bit of a problem, I don't think I can focus into getting a closer warp right now."
Dragoshi: "Anything we should be wary of on our southward trek?"
Oak: "Water Land isn't my specialty: how should I know?"
Dragoshi: "...Eh. Just asking."
Digifanatic: "Yeah, courtesy."
Darkdata: "Sigh, fine, we will call you if anything comes up. Also, Alexia is scared of candies if you say they are form me, hope that helps."
Oak: "Understood. Oak, out." *dial tone.*
Darkdata: *Close Dex.*
Dragoshi: *Closes Dex and puts it away.* "Anyway, we're southward bound, guys."
Digifanatic: "Yeah." *starts heading south.*
Darkdata follows behind Digi.
Dragoshi: "Soo... Let's get to it." *Walks southwards as well.*
Wolfman (GM): One mile down... uh oh. There is a draw bridge raised up. There is a big draw bridge raised up, that spans a good deal of the distance left to the fortress. Below it? Well, deep water, of course.
Dragoshi: *Looks for a there a lever nearby.*
Digifanatic: *joins the search.*
Wolfman (GM): Digi found a Piranha Plant!
Darkdata: *Also joins.*
Wolfman (GM): ...wait: that's a bad thing: it's coming to bite Digi! Digi evades!
Plant: *grumble, grumble, leaves.*
Digifanatic: .oO(Wish they still sold Fire Flowers...)
Wolfman (GM): Dragoshi finds a normal plant. Darkdata found a lever! ...housing. With a broken lever slot.
Darkdata: "Good thing I have a repair clearsong. I think I will just fix this up.."
Digifanatic: *He checks if the bridge is perpendicular to the water, or if it have one of those angles in which one could make a leap for it, kinda like Blues Brothers.*
Dragoshi: *Walks over to Darkdata... After taking the plant. Maybe he could keep it in a vase after the mission's over.*
Wolfman (GM): Digi would see it is perpendicular, no leap possible. Darkdata might have made some progress. However, more needs to be done.
Darkdata: "Hmm, a bit more."
Digifanatic: *looks over.* "Looking good."
Dragoshi: "Well, we're making progress."
Wolfman (GM): Darkdata now has a decent lever ready to pull after his second spellsong.
Darkdata: "Dragoshi, will you do the honors?"
Dragoshi: "Sure thing." *And, so Dragoshi doth pulleth the lever.*
Wolfman (GM): And so, Dragoshi hears the sound of the drawbridge coming back down... and others coming down... and others still going up...
Digifanatic: "Oh, wow, central control."
Wolfman (GM): Congratulations, the Questers have beaten a stage! Sorry I don't have a card for them.
Digifanatic: *tries to get a map of the vicinity of this on his Dex to see which have opened and closed altogether.*
Wolfman (GM): Just cross the newly crossable drawbridge, and one will hit theirr destination. Though one would note that it's not exactly the same map as the famous game.
Darkdata walks across.
Digifanatic: *walks across.*
Wolfman (GM): Dark and Digi are walking: Drag is looking at the ocean.
Dragoshi: *And, so Dragoshi walks across the drawbridge. He'd run, but he doesn't know if that'd be safe to do so.*
Wolfman (GM): So three are walking. *SMB3 Athletic Tune.* You know, Athletic. The one where it's more emphasis on platforms across gaps and water and whatnot, or something else intense? Well, it wouldn't be Athletic without a challenge. So, I bring you... flying Cheep Cheeps!
Digifanatic: "Okay, this is different."
Dragoshi: "...Different's good."
Darkdata uses mirror clearsong. "I might be safe, I think..."
Wolfman (GM): The mirror is created. However, a fish is still coming Darkdata's way. Just Darkdata, since the mirror did attract them. It's only one, though.
Dragoshi: *So, he checks how they are in the way. Particularly if they are flying towards him.*
Darkdata projects the mirror to the left.
Wolfman (GM): The fish destroys the mirror. Darkdata suffers minor recoil damage.
Darkdata: "Hmm, that idea will not work. Let me think..."
Wolfman (GM): Other cheep cheeps are starting to make their way.
Digifanatic tries to stomp on one of the Cheeps!
Wolfman (GM): No other fishes have come up yet. Well, now one is threatening Digi, for wasting my time. :P
Darkdata casts haste, DD is not effected by his own spells, so he does not get its effect.
Digifanatic: *100 points!*
Dragoshi: *He checks if he can run past them.*
Digifanatic continues to run then.
Darkdata: "You guys should be able to run faster now."
Dragoshi: *And, Dragoshi is trying to run past them!*
Wolfman (GM): Of course, this is a LONG bridge. More fishies, one at each!
Dragoshi: *And Dragoshi dodges that fish!*
Darkdata is running.
Wolfman (GM): It's a little hard for cheep cheeps to just stay on bridges and fight, don't you think? The fishes are mad now. Another set coming!
Darkdata: "Repel! Darksong!"
Digifanatic: *Very close miss!*
Dragoshi: *And that cheep cheep misses Drag as well!*
Wolfman (GM): One hits Darkdata! *BONK*
Darkdata: "Bleh. I hate sea food."
Wolfman (GM): New section... uh oh: part of the bridge is out.
Dragoshi: "...Hoo boy." *Checks how long the gap is.*
Wolfman (GM): Long enough so that even a basic jump wouldn't make it. Mid-air jump, pushing it. However, there is hope. There are bloopers "floating" across the gap. There are three bloopers.
Dragoshi: "...Anyone wanna use the Bloopers?"
Wolfman (GM): However, cheep cheeps are also lined up, ready to come at the Questers if they bounce off the bloopers.
Digifanatic: "Probably our best shot!"
Dragoshi: *And, Dragoshi tries to jump on one of the bloopers!*
Darkdata: "Or I could solidify the air. If I know how long the gap is, I could make the air solid for a bit. Oh crap, Dragoshi!"
Digifanatic: "Dark! Now!"
Darkdata: "SOLID AIR!"
Wolfman (GM): Dragoshi get a good bounce. However, a cheep cheep is coming! Bonus for being in the air already! ...or not. Dragoshi makes it.
Digifanatic: *Goes for one of the Bloopers Dragoshi didn't go for!*
Wolfman (GM): Darkdata makes a good attempt. A cheep cheep is coming for Digi, same issue.
Darkdata goes for the jump.
Wolfman (GM): And Digi gets *whapped.* out of midair. Even with Darkdata's extended air, he isin trouble.
Darkdata: "Repel clearsong, the ground will not go down, but it will launch me!"
Wolfman (GM): *SPLASH.*
Digifanatic: *Da-dah d-d-DAH DAH duh duh da.* *DUM DUM.*
Wolfman (GM): Not yet Digi. Digi merely lands in the water. However, there IS a Boss Bass coming up quickly... how fast can one swim? The Boss Bass is on the chase! It already starts off close behind the Questers. Cheep Cheeps, two of them each are also coming at Dragoshi and Darkdata.
Darkdata: "Oh, no, not this time!" *Attraction Darksong.*
Wolfman (GM): No affect. Darkdata also has a new status effect: tiny! Half height.
Darkdata: "This sucks, I hate being small."
Wolfman (GM): Back down to Digi. Boss Bass still wants to eat him! And it wants to gain speed too!
Boss Bass: :D
Darkdata: "just drop down onto it and squish it."
Wolfman (GM): NOW Digi can play that tune. For he has become Jonah. Digi: -1 life. Back to Dark and Dragoshi then. New cheep cheeps are coming up: spiked ones! Same deal as before: 2 each.
Dragoshi: *Dragoshi would evade his set of cheep cheeps.*
Darkdata: "Sigh, repel, please work!"
Wolfman (GM): The cheep cheeps get sent back into the water.
Dragoshi: "Nice one."
Darkdata: "Out of breath, thanks, though those spells take a lot out of me."
Wolfman (GM): Well, don't get tired yet. More Blooper gaps, and more spiky cheep cheeps waiting to jump up, and this time there are TWO Boss Basses waiting below.
Dragoshi: *Tosses Darkdata two Ultra shrooms.*
Darkdata: "Thanks Dragoshi!"
Dragoshi: "No prob."
Wolfman (GM): Dragoshi, Darkdata: again, a blooper gap across the broken holed bridge.
Darkdata: "Sigh, I am makign a bridge this time, Dragoshi, don;t jump yet."
Darkdata: "Spellsong, don't fail me now!" (3x solid air)
Wolfman (GM): ...yeah, that looks right...
Dragoshi: *Presumes he and Darkdata can safely traverse the solid air bridge.*
Wolfman (GM): The bridge covers 2/3rds the distance. A very basic jump is needed. The option to bypass the bridge is still available.
Dragoshi: "Good job. Think we should go for the jump?"
Darkdata: "Should I try one more Drago?"
Dragoshi: "Well... I guess one more wouldn't hurt."
Darkdata: *Takes a deep breath.*
Wolfman (GM): The bridge of solid air is formed across the gap.
Darkdata runs across.
Dragoshi: "And, there we ago." *ZOOMs across the gap.*
Wolfman (GM): ...and of course, the Questers have made ALL of the sea inhabitants mad. First, the Bloopers attempt to dive bomb them. The Bloopers are in the AIR.
Darkdata: "Attraction, make them stick together!" *BONK* Doii spinny wee."
Wolfman (GM): Two spiky cheeps at each of the Questers come now. Dark gets nailed.
Dragoshi: *Drag would be hit by a blooper and evade the cheep cheeps.*
Wolfman (GM): And now the Boss Basses leap up like crazy!
Dragoshi: *odamn.* *Ker-dodge!*
Darkdata: "I have had enough of this. MIRROR!"
Boss Bass: :D
Darkdata: *Pause.* "Dragoshi, stomp it!"
Wolfman (GM): ...what do I look like: someone's Nintendo system?
Dragoshi: *Continues running to the other side...*
Wolfman (GM): *Unpause.*
Boss Bass: :D
Wolfman (GM): And Darkdata loses a life.
Wolfman (GM): Dragoshi make it safely to the other side. He sees... well, what do you know. A goal card.
Dragoshi: "Huh." *Walks over to it.*
Wolfman (GM): It's flashing: super mushroom, fire flower, star, super mushroom, fire flower, star, etc.
Dragoshi: *Jumps, hitting it at a 45 degree angle for the sake of making this look like something out of a gamer's screwed up dream.*
Wolfman (GM): Yep. Dragoshi gains: Super Mushroom Card.
Dragoshi: "Wonder what'll happen if I get two more Mushrooms..."
Wolfman (GM): Suddenly, all of the draw bridges, including the one the Questers just went across, changed positions again. Everyone that lost a life comes back.
Darkdata: "I hate those fish, I hate those fish, and I hate seafood, however, I will cook, and eat them, and believe me, I will enjoy it."
Dragoshi: *So, how far away are we from the fortress, anyway?*
Digifanatic: "Heh... You're not alone... in at least the ticked-off department." *sees if he can get a map of local drawbridges not already traversed.*
Wolfman (GM): Digi needs no map. The Fortress is practically right in front of everyone.
Digifanatic: "Alright, well, let's head in. Nothing much else to do... far as I know."
Dragoshi: "...Well, we're here."
Wolfman (GM): Of course, one has to get past THIS castle's draw bridge first.
Dragoshi: *He checks what is in their way.*
Wolfman (GM): The draw bridge is currently down, but over a moat. There isn't a bunch of fish. The door might prove challenging: it's shut.
Darkdata: "Hello water." *An elemental should be able to open that.*
Dragoshi: *He checks how the door is a challenge.*
Darkdata: *Living Elemental Darksong.*
Wolfman (GM): ...it WAS shut by the traditional castle style shutting. But Dark just flooded the door... and the entrance.
Darkdata: "I am not in a happy place right now."
Wolfman (GM): The entrance is clear.
Dragoshi: "...Works for me" *Would proceed to follow...*
Digifanatic: "Might as well." *heads in.*
Wolfman (GM): And Boss Basses come up to eat the Questers alive! ...just kidding. no trap this time. *SMB3 Dungeon Theme.* I welcome ye all, to thy Dungeon of Water.
Dragoshi: *He looks inside the fortress.*
Wolfman (GM): Well, there USED to be torches to see everything... but Dark kind of washed them out. Visibility is limited. yes. unfortunately, 5 feet or so in front isn't much help.
Digifanatic: "What sucks is that there's probably going to be one of those Thwomps coming from outta nowhere..."
Dragoshi: *Tries to breathe fire on any torches that were put out*
Darkdata: "Do any of you have fire attacks?"
Darkdata: "If so, I may have an idea."
Dragoshi: *Well, let's try it...*
Darkdata: "Well, who needs my plan, go Dragoshi!"
Wolfman (GM): Visibility is restored to normal by Dragoshi's fire breath.
Darkdata: *Now what do we see?*
Dragoshi: "No prob." *Now looks around some more.*
Wolfman (GM): The hallway is narrow. We're talking the unit square Dragoshi is on, and one more on the right of him.
Digifanatic: *looks forward... and up.*
Darkdata dittos Digi.
Wolfman (GM): Up, a normal ceiling. Mario could probably triple jump up to touch it.
Darkdata: *looks down.*
Wolfman (GM): Down: the wet ground. Forward: Something coming and going in and out of the distance.
Digifanatic: *Checks the color and shape.*
Darkdata: "Well, the cruel thing to do would be for someone to use a logn range attack on it."
Wolfman (GM): Shape is hard to tell from this distance. Color: kind of yellow.
Digifanatic starts to slowly walk up to it, but still stays well out of its range.
Wolfman (GM): Digi move a few units up ahead. He is still safe. The shape is clearer. It's a sphere.
Darkdata follows behind Digi, but slowly.
Dragoshi: *Does the same...*
Wolfman (GM): It's a sphere that is rotating around something. Closer to Digi's, but it's not a "searchlight."
Digifanatic: *Tries to see how long it takes for it to complete one cycle of motion.*
Wolfman (GM): Digi is looking at 1.5 seconds.
Digifanatic: "Ooh... thing's pretty quick. I say if we time our stops right... and there are only two times we have to be worried about it... we can easily get outta here scot-free."
Wolfman (GM): The rotation might matter, so I will say how it's rotating. This sphere is coming towards the Questers from up top, then goes away from them at the bottom. If this was 2D, it would be counter clockwise.
Digifanatic: "Run for it?"
Darkdata: "Like ninjas?"
Digifanatic: "Heh... Drag? Your thoughts?"
Darkdata: "Yeah, why not. You first."
Digifanatic: "That's not a problem."
Dragoshi: "Ehh... Whatever works."
Digifanatic: *stretches his fingers and goes for it.*
Wolfman (GM): And with style! Digi gains 5 style points!
Darkdata: "No trick can save me this time." *runs.*
Wolfman (GM): *smack.* Darkdata gets sent back to where he attempted to run.
Darkdata: "Hmm... BANAZZIE."
Dragoshi: "Now, I believe it's my turn..." *And, Dragoshi tries to zoom past the sphere!*
Wolfman (GM): Dragoshi: *trip, fall on ground, get smacked by sphere TWICE.* Dragoshi then gets sent back. Darkdata: *smack.* *start.*
Dragoshi: *Let's try that again and without the stupid fumble.*
Darkdata: "Wait... Well, I will have to try my tricks, I am getting nowhere."
Wolfman (GM): Dragoshi makes it.
Darkdata waits for it to float out of the path, then uses seal.
Wolfman (GM): It continues its path.
Darkdata: "Well, I guess I can try that again." *and again, and again.*
Wolfman (GM): It's caught... but trying to break free!
Darkdata uses amplify on the spell. Then he zooms by.
Wolfman (GM): Bad move. Darkdata turned it into an Amp! ...but he skirted by just in time anyway. Everyone is past the roto disc amp of doom. There is a small stone staircase up ahead. The ceiling lowers soon past the staircase.
Digifanatic: *He checks the ceiling for spikes.*
Wolfman (GM): There are no spikes.
Darkdata: *He checks if the ceiling is moving.*
Wolfman (GM): It's still possible to walk under the ceiling. Instead of a triple jump, a double jump could reach the top. It's not moving down. Or moving up.
Digifanatic heads up the stairs, once again looking for dangers like Thwomps.*
Wolfman (GM): The stairs weren't that tall actually.
Darkdata goes up the steps then, and starts walking slowly. Doing as Digi is doing, and keeping close watch for other traps like pits.
Wolfman (GM): Only a few blocks up. Right below the Questers is a pipe. Up ahead, they barely see some creatures, and possibly another Rotodisc or two.
Dragoshi: *And Dragoshi follows closely behind, doing the same.*
Darkdata checks to see if the pipe is warpable.
Wolfman (GM): Warpable? It might be... just not in that direction.
Digifanatic: "You think we should take a look and see what's ahead or do you think the pipe would be better off? It could send us into a safe spot or into that fish's stomach again."
Darkdata: "I think we should continue on, the pipe may be a trap."
Dragoshi: "...How would that even work? No, seriously. How would a pipe lead to a fi-Nevermind."
Digifanatic walks closer in to see what enemies are up ahead, yet staying far from the Rotodisc. "Well, it could go into the water."
Wolfman (GM): The Questers are now under the slightly lowered ceiling.
Digifanatic: "I mean, look at where the pipe in HQ led to."
Dragoshi: "Yea, but that's 'cause that hasn't been done in a while."
Wolfman (GM): They can still barely make out a disc. A gray creature is more visible. There is a door a few feet ahead. There is more stuff past the door.
Digifanatic: *He checks if it's Dry Bones or a Boom Boom. Nah, it's not a Boom Boom. Not far enough yet.*
Wolfman (GM): ...should I activate the timer for you guys to move on?
Digifanatic continues to get closer while staying out of the Rotodisc's range.
Darkdata: "Erm, Digi, send a long range non fire attack down the hall."
Dragoshi: "...Ah, to heck with it. Move on ahead?"
Wolfman (GM): Digi and Dragoshi move a few units.
Thwomp: :D *goes to squish.*
Darkdata follows slowly behind.
Wolfman (GM): Dark is safe: he didn't move yet.
Digifanatic: *THAT'S TWO.*
Thwomp: :( *attempts to sideways ram the two that went past him.*
Wolfman (GM): Hard to say with that one. But Digi... well, a chain reaction has suddenly taken place. Somehow, during that last dodge, he also give the thwomp a good kick. He hears the Thwomp colliding into something. 2 somethings. 3... 4...5... 6... 7...8... and a 9th.
Dragoshi: "...Nice one."
Digifanatic: *WHOA!* *The points may not matter BUT THAT SURE DOES.*
Darkdata: "Nice work you two."
Dragoshi: "...Did you just cause a 10-enemy pile-up, Digi?"
Darkdata walks towards the DeeDees.
Digifanatic: "I guess."
Dragoshi: "...Nice one. Well, I believe that puts several problems out of the way." *Checks for more Thwomps.*
Wolfman (GM): Anyway, the hallway has suddenly been cleared of just about every enemy. Now, the Questers are in front of a door. Only Digi gets an extra life from that pileup.
Darkdata: *He checks if he can just stick his heads in.*
Digifanatic: *He checks for any chance of seeing anything important past the hallway.*
Dragoshi: "Think we should open it...?"
Darkdata: "What is ahead of us?" *looks.*
Wolfman (GM): Dark sees more hallway... more doors.
Darkdata: "Guys, want to check to see if there is more doors? Maybe a D, door, aka 4."
Digifanatic: "Heh... what is this? A study in numerology? But it is a random draw. Don't know any of the outcomes..." *looks for a fourth door in line.*
Dragoshi: *Staying together...*
Darkdata: *Staying together.*
Wolfman (GM): Current door is the 1st door.
Wolfman (GM): Currently at 1... the Questers go 2... 3...4. No traps or enemies: they thwomped them.
Darkdata: "Wait? Did the thwomp break the wall to the exit?"
Digifanatic: "Don't know, but probably not."
Wolfman (GM): The Questers are at the fourth door.
Darkdata: "Now, shift one door more? It is never the one you pick out first."
Digifanatic: "Okay... interesting philosophy."
Darkdata: "Soo, door 5, and lets go though it. Kay, guys?"
Digifanatic: "Sure." *Into 5!*
Darkdata: *Yeah, why not, we have no idea anyway.*
Wolfman (GM): Into door 5 the Questers go then. *scene change.* They suddenly find themselves on top of a platform. A very small one.
Dragoshi: *He looks down.*
Wolfman (GM): A big pool of water. ...with captive Boss Basses.
Digifanatic: "Oh, more of those..."
Dragoshi: *He counts them.*
Digifanatic: *Looks to see what kind of gap they're in for.*
Wolfman (GM): One right below the Questers that one can see, another one farther ahead... and vision is sketchy after that. The door back is still open.
Darkdata: "Oh dear lord I hate this game. Castle, I meant castle."
Dragoshi: *Lets go back through said door then...*
Digifanatic: "Heh." *back through door.* "Wanna try 4 now?"
Wolfman (GM): All of you are back in the main hallway.
Darkdata: "Door 4?" *walks to the door.*
Dragoshi: *And, Dragoshi follows closely behind.*
Digifanatic: *I'll see what's behind Door #4, Mon--I mean, Wolf.*
Wolfman (GM): And behind door number 4, we have a big pool full of carnivorous fish! *SPLASH.* Of course, the Questers now have two Boss Basses coming for the three of them. And the door back... well, it's too high up.
Dragoshi: *Swim away...?*
Wolfman (GM): Which direction?
Darkdata swims away!
Digifanatic: *Swims whatever is not the direction towards the BBs.*
Wolfman (GM): Digi is surrounded.
Dragoshi: *Same as them.*
Wolfman (GM): Digi will have to choose one to play chicken with.
Darkdata uses his dimension ring to poof the one to the right away. "To the right guys!"
Wolfman (GM): The dimension ring does its thing: it's gone right now.
Digifanatic: *swims away from the one on the left!*
Wolfman (GM): The path to the right is currently clear... but the Boss Bass on the left is gaining ground.
Darkdata swims his arse off in the now open direction.
Dragoshi: *Swims away from the left one as well!*
Darkdata tries to summon a water elemental to push it away.
Wolfman (GM): Digi gets good speed. Drag: skipping.
Dark: "It's not very effective..."
Darkdata starts to climb. "Keep it distracted elemental!"
Wolfman (GM): And Boss Bass is approaching fast!
Boss Bass: :D .oO(TWO People to eat!)
Wolfman (GM): The reason I skipped Drag was due to the actions of the elemental... which didn't work. And his attempt wasn't enough for distance. ...neither was Darkdata's. *CHOMP* *CHOMP.*
Wolfman (GM): Only Digi is around: the rest, sit tight.
Digifanatic: .oO(Dang, now I have to do the dirty work.)
Wolfman (GM): The left fish is quite full right now. There is a Boss Bass in the right in the distance.
Digifanatic: *Quickly looks to see if that first BB has retreated or not, sleeping perhaps.*
Wolfman (GM): It's too full to want to eat right now.
Digifanatic: *Heads back to the left before the right hand BB catches his eye.*
Wolfman (GM): Digi make it to a platform. There is a pipe.
Digifanatic: "Nothing else to do that doesn't involve the risk of being eaten...* *OONT OONT--I mean, he takes the pipe.*
Wolfman (GM): Pipe taken. Everyone comes back at the pipe. Right before the hallway.
Digifanatic: "Well, we know 4 and 5 just plain suck."
Wolfman (GM): Live count currently: Dark at 1, Dragoshi at 2, Digi at 3.
Dragoshi: *Good thing he still has two lives left...*
Darkdata: "Next bass we see, we team attack it to death? Deal?" *Eats a phoenix down.*
Digifanatic: "That's not a bad idea."
Dragoshi: "What kind of idiot makes doors that lead to fish-related death anyway?"
Dragoshi: "Aside from Bowser."
Digifanatic: "Ooh, good point."
Wolfman (GM): And so Dark gets the 1-up sound. ...or not.
Darkdata: "I hate them, ever so much."
Digifanatic: *Counts how many doors there are* "Getting out of here is basically picking a number out of a hat..."
Wolfman (GM): Despite normal game convention, the enemies haven't regenerated. Walking through, Digi sees 9 doors.
Darkdata: "If anyone has a phoenix down for me, I think I will blow out a wall of this base. I am really tempted to do so. And if not, 2 sounds fine."
Digifanatic: "Yeah, I have one... Which means I'll have to buy another for Scott. Yes, I said that. I don't know when he's coming back but I distinctly remember him telling me that I owe him one."
Digifanatic: "Drag, you have any?"
Dragoshi: "...Just one."
Digifanatic: "I'm not putting burden on you, I'm just wondering."
Darkdata: "Nah, keep it. Door 2 it is."
Digifanatic: "Majority rules."
Digifanatic: *Into Door #2.*
Wolfman (GM): *Splash.* However, the Questers are right by the platform!
Digifanatic: "Not this again!" *Hops on the platform ASAP.*
Darkdata does the same, out the door.
Darkdata: "Guys, next door? :/"
Wolfman (GM): The Pipe awaits.
Dragoshi: *And down the pipe we go.*
Darkdata: *Pew pew pew.*
Digifanatic: *OONT OONT OONT.*
Wolfman (GM): *pew pew pew.* Hallway, take 3! err... 4!
Dragoshi: "...wanna try 7?"
Digifanatic: "Might as well."
Darkdata: "Seven it is then."
Digifanatic: "Unless..." *opens his Dex to see if it knows any of Bowser's trades or whatnot that may at least give them a clue as to which door to go through.*
Darkdata: "Well I feel stupid." *uses eye of truth on the doors.*
Digifanatic: "So do I. Ah..."
Wolfman (GM): Digi see a map of the current room. 9 doors. No enemies.
Digifanatic: *closes Dex and repockets it.*
Wolfman (GM): Dark got something! Door 6.
Darkdata: "Hmm? Whats this? Door 6 seems to stand out."
Digifanatic: "Go for it. I trust the eye." *takes door #6, please.*
Dragoshi: *Follows behind...*
Wolfman (GM): The eye failed, Darkdata gets a game over, everyone gets mad at me... oh wait: wrong script. *checks again.* ...ah, there we go. Safe platform... and stairs up!
Dragoshi: "And, there we go."
Digifanatic: *climbs the stairs but still takes a cautious look juuuuuuust incase.*
Wolfman (GM): No traps going up. Just another door.
Dragoshi: *Checks for double doors.*
Wolfman (GM): Single, like every other.
Darkdata follows them.
Dragoshi: *Does the same.*
Digifanatic: *goes for it and cautiously starts to enter the door.*
Darkdata takes a quick look around while grabbing Digi's shirt and pulling him back. "Not so fast."
Wolfman (GM): Digi can't tell... and gets pulled back.
Digifanatic: "Oh, sorry."
Darkdata: *Checks if there is any other doors and whatnot in the room.*
Digifanatic: "Got a bit ambitious."
Wolfman (GM): There are the whole bunch of other doors that were in midair waiting for the Questers to enter them and become Boss Bass Bait. But on the immediate platform? Just the new door, and the one the Questers came from.
Darkdata: "This one it is then?"
Digifanatic: "NOW let's enter."
Dragoshi: *Dragoshi enters too.*
Wolfman (GM): Everyone enters. This time, the Questers are in a dark hallway. And there is no door to retreat to, ground or air: it's like it was never there. The Questers are currently on land. There are voices at the far end.
Dragoshi: *Tries to listen in.*
Darkdata: *whisper.* "Lets go guys, quietly."
Wolfman (GM): Dragoshi hears... well, it's practically all mumbling from where he is. Completely incoherent.
Darkdata: *whisper.* "Lets move closer, slowly..."
Digifanatic takes a few quiet steps closer...
Dragoshi: *Nods and does the same...*
Wolfman (GM): The Questers are close enough to see a few figures. There are two creatures that are almost Wolfman's current height, with a yellow/brown complexion. There is also someone... that looks... watery?
Darkdata: *whisper.* "Can you hear them now Dragoshi?"
Dragoshi: *Tries another..*
Creatures: "...water... flood..."
Dragoshi: *Whispers.* "I heard something about a flood... Think you could try to listen in as well?"
Wolfman (GM): That's all the Questers can get out of them.
Darkdata: *whisper.* "Lets move closer, again.."
Digifanatic: *takes one or two more steps.* *Another listen check.*
Wolfman (GM): *switch.* The path behind the Questers has sealed.
Digifanatic: *wah wah.*
Wolfman (GM): The three creatures stop what they are doing, and turn to the Questers. Now, everyone can see each other clearly.
Darkdata: *whisper.* "Crap."
???1: "...and who are you guys?"
???2: "I don't recall inviting anyone else over!"
Darkdata: "The ones who have evaded every stupid boss bass in this place."
Wolfman (GM): The first two are the yellow/brown creatures. The third one is the water creature.
Darkdata: "We are from the Toad Town safety and tourism board."
Dragoshi: "...What was that about a flood involving the water?"
???1: "And how much did you hear?!?"
???2: "We demand to know who you are!"
Dragoshi: "Only that as far as you should be concerned."
Darkdata: "Like I said, from toad town safety and tourism board. We are here to see if this castle is fit for tours. From the mass of cheep cheep, and your plans to flood everything, I guess not."
???1: "You guys don't look like part of any tourist board I know of."
???2: "You look like you ARE the tourists!"
Darkdata: "Adventure tourism."
Dragoshi: "... Who the heck are you people anyway?"
???1: "People? We're Boom Booms! Well... myself and my brother here. I'm Boomer."
???2: "And I'm Beemer."
Digifanatic: .oO(I was wondering when we would get to those.)
Darkdata: "And squishy over there?"
Dragoshi: "And the water being?"
Wolfman (GM): The third one draws his weapon... a paint brush?
Darkdata: "Ah, not water, ink. Nice paintbrush."
Dragoshi: "...Oh carp. I know where this is going."
Wolfman (GM): The third one... Bowser Jr. Well... one of them, anyway, if you think Mario Party has some canon to it.
Darkdata: "Knew it."
Bowser Jr: "...you two don't look like my father or my mother. Where is my father?"
Dragoshi: "...Well, this is gonna be awkward to explain..."
Bowser Jr: "Try me!"
Wolfman (GM): He certainly sounds like a smug brat.
Darkdata: "He died for trying to kill everyone, then came back, died again, we are exspecting him to attack as himself, or a ghost any day now."
Dragoshi: "...Actually, Dark. He already did come back as a ghost. ...And was slain again."
Bowser Jr: "..."
Wolfman (GM): *WHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!*
Dragoshi: "Don't you remember that massive fight in the Dark Te-WOAH!" *Falls over.*
Dragoshi: *Success? Fail? Disco?*
Wolfman (GM): The only thing that happened to everyone was an anime facefault. And maybe a sweat drop.
Bowser Jr: "I can't find my mommy. I can't find my daddy. I can't find anyone! I'm going to hurt you for bringing me this news!"
Dragoshi: "...Hoo boy."
Boomer: "Do we help him Beemer?"
Beemer: "...they did make him upset."
Darkdata: "Well, there is one other thing that could of happened..."
Bowser Jr: "...what?" *slightly irrational.*
Dragoshi: "...Go on..."
Darkdata: "Bad guys usually have a resurrection moment for random things. If you Bowser Jr go on a quest to bring him back, you should be able to do it."
Dragoshi: "...Yea. That's always possible."
Bowser Jr: "...really...?" *back to brat mode.* "How can I be sure you aren't lying?!?"
Darkdata: "Because, you would know, you are that great of a koopa." .oO(Ugh, must wash mouth out.)
Bowser Jr: "...then you obviously don't know me very well. I'm not great! I'm MAGNIFICENT!"
Darkdata: "Ah, see, there you go, you know if I would lie."
Bowser Jr: "I've helped reclaim my mother many times from that stupid plumber who thinks that he'd get laid the moment that she is rescued! ...hey, wait a second. Do you know him?"
Digifanatic: "Wait... you say your mother is Peach?!"
Darkdata: "No, sadly, last I heard he was with peach in a toad town hotel."
Digifanatic: .oO(DOES NOT COMPUUUUUTE!)
Bowser Jr: "Of course my mother is Peach! Dad told me!"
Darkdata: "The other Questers knew that plumber though."
Bowser Jr: "And what do you mean, Mother is with that plumber?"
Boomer, Beemer, Bowser Jr: "QUESTERS?!?"
Darkdata: "Yeah, you know, the ones in toad town guarding Mario. I talked to them on the way here."
Bowser Jr: "You are allied with them, aren't you? Even indirectly!"
Darkdata: "No, just with the tourist board. If we were allied with them, you know the base would of just been blown up."
Bowser Jr: "I still don't believe you are with the tourist board."
Boomer: "Where is your identification?"
Beemer: "We need proof!"
Darkdata: "Sadly a boss bass ate it. Those things really are a pain."
Boomer: "Then you are trespassing!"
Beemer: "And now we have to force you out!"
Bowser Jr: "Do we get to fight them already?!"
Darkdata: "I could summon the boss bass here, to show you. The one that ate it."
Wolfman (GM): Dark already used his ring once.
Digifanatic: .oO(Okay, this is getting outrageous!)
Blade: "Hrm, apparently it's no use... we'll have to fight." *The strange lion was standing nearby, where the *hell* did he come from?*
Darkdata: "Alas, I guess we fight."
Dragoshi: *Draws his sword out if the fight comes to it.*
Darkdata: "I never lied, else you would have known."
Wolfman (GM): Bowser Jr quickly rushes towards Darkdata, and starts with two quick claw swipes! Watch the nails! He then jumps up, swinging his paint brush at your head while he's going up. And now that he's up above everyone he goes to ground pound Darkdata. He's hit Darkdata plenty of times but... the attack has produced ground shockwaves that threaten everyone!
Boomer: "Wha? He's lost his temper already!"
Beemer: "I agree!"
Wolfman (GM): Those who got hurt: Digi, Boomer, Blade.
Boomer: "You might have the after effects, but I still have the raw power Bowser Jr!"
Bowser Jr: "Oh yeah?"
Boomer: "Watch me!"
Wolfman (GM): Boomer leaps high into the air, wondering which Quester to go after...
Wolfman (GM): Digi might want to watch out. He's got himself a Boom Boom retracting into spikes and somersaulting into him!
Wolfman (GM): *MAJOR PAIN.* He got himself critted there.
Digifanatic figures that might as well do the important thing and take Darkdata out of his misery and give him that Phoenix Down... after all, he's got enough money to pay for another one. He then goes for Boomer with a Icy Kick to finish off his turn!
Darkdata: "Thanks Digi!"
Wolfman (GM): Boomer can't defend that one. Knockback... doesn't work?
Dragoshi: *Dragoshi pulls out his scythe, moves five feet forward and tries to reap the paintbrush from Bowser Jr.'s grasp with a Five-Clawed Discount!*
Bowser Jr: *ENRAGED.*
Darkdata: "Snap it, Snap it!"
Wolfman (GM): It can be physical, or magical, depending on the use. Stats unknown until used. *tick tock.*
Dragoshi: *And Dragoshi attempts to shoot out a Paint Blast at Bowser Jr.! (Modified Tidal Blast, magical)*
Wolfman (GM): The blobs of paint mix with the water, creating bigger targets! *splat.* Jr is now looking like a hippy. Rainbow colors. Being enraged made Jr slightly more vulnerable it seems.
Dragoshi: *And, Dragoshi...* *Fires out a solid, jagged looking needle of paint at Jr!*
Wolfman (GM): *BZZ.* The paint brush magic now goes against Dragoshi!
Dragoshi: *And Dragoshi waits.*
Wolfman (GM): *self splat.*
Bowser Jr: "Not that easy to use, huh?"
Darkdata: "I still say you should snap it."
Beemer: "Snapping... good idea. I'll snap you in half!"
Wolfman (GM): Beemer goes up to Darkdata, and attempts to grab him!
Darkdata: *Holds up a sign.* "Meep."
Wolfman (GM): He does. Can you say, atomic buster ripoff for a bunch of damage?
Darkdata: *Dead.* *Not reviving yet.* *Waiting till his turn.*
Beemer: "Didn't think it would be that easy. Oh well: I got my turn in. Now try getting your shots in!" *retreats into uber spike shield.*
Darkdata revives, then tosses an ultra mushroom to Digi. He then makes a solid air shield temporary around himself.
Digifanatic: *gets DA SHROOM* "Alright..."
Blade scans Boomer and Beemer for his turn.
Dex: *DING.* "Boomer and Beemer. Twin Boom Booms, estimated level 125 according to Quester data. These are high level Boom Booms, with more variety in attacks than the traditional kind. They can also survive more than three hits to the head. Move information is unknown. *DONE.* STR 15, SPD 15, END 15, MNT 5, Beemer at full health, Boomer list 96. Max HP unknown, no elemental weaknesses/resistances/absorbtions/etc."
Bowser Jr: *turns to Darkdata.* "...what the? You are alive?!?!?"
Wolfman (GM: Jr jumps over to Darkdata and breathes some fire at him! ...far as I recall, fire can easily inflame solid air. Is that true? consuming oxygen? ...Darkdata's move resists some of the fireballs. He's not done. Two claw swipes easily pierce through the remaining solid air.
Wolfman (GM): And only the left claw gets Darkdata.
Darkdata: "Woo, I finally dodg-- ooffh."
Bowser Jr: "Dodge something, huh? Well, dodge this!" *attempts to headbutt Darkdata!*
Wolfman (GM): DD takes damage in the stomach area.
Darkdata: "Bleh. I hate this."
Boomer: "Thank you for not shaking the floor again."
Wolfman (GM): Boomer turns to the dragon-yoshi hybrid.
Boomer: "You... you helped revive your ally! An interesting trick, but now I'm going to hurt you for it!"
Wolfman (GM): Two punches coming up!
Boomer: "...wait. You didn't do that. It was the other one!"
Dragoshi: *Pegged by the first, but dodges the second.* "..." >_>;;
Wolfman (GM): Boomer goes to Digi and gives him two fists of his own.
Digifanatic: *Boomer's 2-for-2!*
Boomer: *retreats into super spiked shell.*
Digifanatic decides to smack Bowser Jr. around for all of that crap he just did to Darkdata... he turns back to face the other, and a Fire Punch should strike it rich on the first blow! And he moves on with an Aerial Strike, staying on the same target)...
Wolfman (GM): Uh oh... Digi trips and punches himself with the same Fire Punch.
Digifanatic: *Ouch!* *Okay, Aerial Strike to BJr.* *Better.*
Wolfman (GM): And that's a hit.
Digifanatic: *GRIP IT AND RIP IT! at Bowser Jr.* *He finishes by moving back 10 feet and guarding Darkdata!* "You need the insurance, buddy."
Wolfman (GM): Dragoshi still has the brush.
Dragoshi: *Dragoshi... Quick Dexes Bowser Jr.!*
Dex: *DING.* "Bowser Junior... one of them, anyway. 204 HP taken, rest unknown. Constant exposure to the brush has made him unpredictable and unreadable for a good deal of things. He has this strange belief that Princess Peach Toadstool is his mother. Why that is is unknown."
Dragoshi: "...That makes a lot of sense." *Anyway, Dragoshi pulls out his scythe and tries to slash at Jr. with it!*
Wolfman (GM): Two hits.
Digifanatic: .oO(Yes, yes yes, all I needed was a tee and a ginormous "Titleist" stamp...)
Dragoshi: *Dragoshi then gets into position gathering up energy, and continuing to do so, and then unleashes it all upon Jr. in a hyper-charged Flipkick, utlizing the scythe for reach and accuracy!*
Wolfman (GM): Ouch. Dragoshi hurts him even more. Beemer gets out of his shell retreat.
Beemer: "Hmm... is that you trying to be heroic and protecting your best friend?" *asking Digi.*
Digifanatic: "I don't know if heroic is the right word, but I am trying to take the blows for him, yes."
Wolfman: "Well, why don't I help you take the blows to him?" *attempts to grab Digi.*
Wolfman (GM): Beemer now goes for the giant swing! However, it's not Digi he's after hurting... it's Dark!
Darkdata: "Oh, crap!"
Beemer: "And it's ONE... TWO... THREE strikes you're out at the old... Ball... GAAAAAAAAAAAAAME!"
Boomer: "Shut up!"
Beemer: "Wait... I missed one!"
Wolfman (GM): Beemer just winds up one hand... uh oh. If you thought only Smashers could rear back... you were wrong. Only Beemer reared TOO far back! He's on his back!
Dragoshi: "..." *Laughs.*
Beemer: "That's not funny!"
Darkdata: "Hmm, I wonder." *Lullaby - Bowser Jr.*
Wolfman (GM): Darkdata sings "I Love You" by Barney.
Darkdata: "Let me try that again." *Lullaby - Bowser Jr.*
Wolfman (GM): Bowser Jr just laughs. Laughter and Embarrassment causes a penalty for the rest of the turn on all rolls.
Bowser Jr: "I'm still angry that you told me my daddy is gone!"
Wolfman (GM): ...it seems Junior is unsure who to attack this time. Digi's turn for pain! Two claw swipes coming his way: right hand first, then left.
Digifanatic: *swipe swipe.*
Wolfman (GM): Junior then jumps up... but since his paint brush was stolen by Dragoshi, he'll have to resort to trying to flip kick Digi. Of course, he's not THAT good at it, but... Junior might have missed... but he still gets enough air. Now... there is a problem. He wants to butt stomp. Digi is in the way. So is Darkdata. ...wait, who am I kidding? It's not a problem for him!
Digifanatic: *intense headbutt connection.*
Wolfman (GM): The shockwaves are coming again! Boomer and Beemer take damage, and Beemer gets his spikes stuck in the ground! Boomer shakes some of the cobwebs away. He sees the current situation.
Boomer: "So you still wish to protect your friend?"
Dragoshi: .oO(...Man, this battle has gotten interesting.) *Just watches.*
Boomer: "Well, try avoiding me first!" He wants to grab Digi. "My brother DEFINITELY had the right idea with how to handle you and your buddy."
Digifanatic: *Can't run from that!*
Darkdata: "Oh no!"
Boomer: *giant swing imitation.*
Wolfman (GM): That third hit DEFINITELY caused some pain and suffering to Darkdata. He's damaged and dazed. Digi simply took damage.
Digifanatic: *-1 Life.*
Darkdata: "Digi!" X_x
Digifanatic: *Revive.* *finishes off his turn by avoiding any silly crap this time... and Fire Punches Beemer's exposed gut (hey, can't touch the spikes in that position!)*
Beemer: *wince.* That it?
Dragoshi: "Hmm..." *Dragoshi, while contemplating on who to wail on snaps his fingers, and...*
Bowser Jr & Boomer: "What is that?"
Dragoshi: *Causes a swirling vortex to open up which summons a miniature mech! ...Which takes Dragoshi's machinegun.* "Yeaa... Attack the brat." *The mech, complying with Dragoshi's orders opens fire on Bowser Jr.*
Wolfman (GM): And Junior is definitely hit.
Bowser Jr: "Oh no!"
Dragoshi: *The mech dissapears, tossing Drag his machinegun.* "Heheh." *He then puts the machinegun away and quickly draws out his sword, as he then glares at Junior, energy building up, then, suddenly assaults Junior with an upward kick/slash combo, and on descent strikes him with another kick/slash combo!*
Wolfman (GM): *slash slash.* Beemer takes some time to get up off of the ground.
Beemer: *growls at Darkdata.* "If I can't swing you out, I'll just roll you out!"
Wolfman (GM): He jumps up, and gets into another spiky somersault. Better pray for a crit miss.
Darkdata: "Is that a demonic duck of some sort!" *points over there.*
Wolfman (GM): Darkdata is mowed down.
Beemer: "You are no Mario... or tourist. However, you were a nice attraction. Hope you enjoyed the show!" *laughs.*
Wolfman (GM): Junior has to shake off some of those other cobwebs. He goes over to Dragoshi and attempts to burn him with some of his fire breath.
Dragoshi: *The first and last ones hit as Drag dances out of the way of the middle three!*
Wolfman (GM): And he's not done. He attempts to perform another headbutt on Dragoshi.
Dragoshi: *And he dances out of the way again!*
Wolfman (GM): ...undershot the target. Figures. Boomer wants to go after Digi. However, he decides to try something... different. He jumps up, grows some wings... and stays high up in the ceiling! The ceiling, as the Questers may not have noticed, is similar to the entrance of this fortress: triple jump could touch the top.
Digifanatic turns back toward Bowser Jr and sweeps in an Icy Kick, turns around, going for an Aerial Strike, and finished his turn by slipping in a Running Charge once everything is done with.
Wolfman (GM): *brr.* *done.* *stricken.*
Digifanatic: *Running Charge.*
Wolfman (GM): *bulled.*
Dragoshi: *Dragoshi would proceed to attack Bowser Jr. with some fire breath of his own!*
Wolfman (GM): Minor burns only.
Bowser Jr: "Huh? That's IT?"
Dragoshi: "I'm biding my time..."
Wolfman (GM): Beemer has a BIG smirk on his face.
Beemer: "I take it you are the leader of this group?" *to Drag.*
Dragoshi: "I suppose so..."
Beemer: "Then it's my obligation to send you to the sky... or at least, the ceiling."
Wolfman (GM): He attempts to grab Dragoshi.
Dragoshi: *And Dragoshi calmly sidesteps.*
Beemer: "Hold still!" *moves a little quicker now.*
Dragoshi: *That, on the other hand...*
Beemer: "Boomer, air mail!" And with that, Dragoshi gets sent WAY up... daze AND stun... to Boomer on the ceiling.
Wolfman (GM): *TEAM ATTACK.*
Boomer: "Beemer, ground mail!"
Wolfman (GM): He's in the right position to practically pile drive Dragoshi's body. *CRIT.* Wings now gone, it's all gravity. Boomer on top, Dragoshi in the middle, ground steadily approaching... tons of damage to Dragoshi. However, shockwaves came from that!
Beemer: "I forgot about that."
Bowser Jr: "You copycats!"
Wolfman (GM): Only Beemer took damage there.
Bowser Jr: "Now give me back my paint brush!"
Wolfman (GM): He's gone ballistic: 6 claw swipes this time!
Dragoshi: *And... Swipes 2-4 hit! The rest miss.*
Wolfman (GM): Followed by... what the? He's pulling something out of his pocket?
Bowser Jr: "You think you are the only one who keeps items handy?"
Wolfman (GM): Dragoshi is seeing... a mushroom in his hand. A powerful one. And he gulps it down.
Nick: "...That does not look good."
Wolfman (GM): One thing can be noticed though: it's more powerful than Ultra.
Boomer: "Hey, good idea."
Wolfman (GM): Dragoshi got himself Boomer wanting to exchange fisticuffs with him now. 6 more coming! That last punch will merely seal that deal. And thus Dragoshi loses life #2. Junior: took 597 HP before shroom. Boomer: 146 taken. Beemer: 177 taken. maxes were unknown on scan. All three enemies are on the ground.
Digifanatic Dexes Junior, curious as to what happened after he ate that shroom.
Dex: *DING.* "Bowser Junior. About 397 damage taken so far, factoring in item usage. Again, there is a lot unknown."
Digifanatic: "That's all I need!"
Dragoshi: *Revives...* "Gah."
Bowser Jr: "Those stupid machines... I'm going to steal those next!"
Digifanatic turns back around to face Bowser Jr., with the type of physical movement normally associated with a Fire Punch... BUT THAT'S ICE INSTEAD! *First use of Elemental Will.*
Dragoshi: *Meh. Is only reviving. Nothing else yet until his turn. So, yea.*
Wolfman (GM): *chilled.* Welcome back to the land of the living, Dragoshi.
Dragoshi: *Anyway, Dragoshi attempts to get some sort of vengeance on Jr. by attempting to cast Indignation on 'im!*
Wolfman (GM): *undignified.*
Dragoshi: *Bam! Crackle! Jr. is fried by a barrage of blue lightning and sparks for damage and stun!*
Beemer: "What haven't I done in awhile... I know! I'll do the Mario!" *high jumps to...*
Wolfman (GM): Dragoshi.
Wolfman (GM): All he merely does now is roll recovery... well, Dragoshi might want to watch out since he might be in the way TO recovery! *no crit, but hit.* Those spikes ARE sharp, after all.
Bowser Jr: "I want that paint brush! GIMMEGIMMEGIMMEGIMMEGIMME!"
Wolfman (GM): Junior is going for ye old favorite again... first up: two claw smacks on you!
Bowser Jr: "...hold still!" *tries again!*
Dragoshi: *And Drag... Tapdances away from the clawing?* *And... Again!*
Bowser Jr: "Fine: I'll just drop on your toes!" *jumps up for a ground pounding.*
Wolfman (GM): ...
Dragoshi: *More dancing out of the way!* *This time it's breakdancing. >_>*
Wolfman (GM): Instead of the usual routine... Junior didn't orient himself right. Instead of the butt coming down... yep. head gets stuck on the ground. No shockwaves either.
Dragoshi: *Trying to hold back laughter.*
Wolfman (GM): He does take damage... but I'm not saying what. Sorry, but headache isn't a status effect. :P Moving on...
Wolfman (GM): Boomer takes some time to grab Junior... easy enough to do. However... he holds on?
Boomer: "I'll show you how to use your head!"
Wolfman (GM): Boomer winds up, and pitches... woah! I'm unsure if it's football or baseball, but it's heading to both Digi and Dragoshi!
Wolfman (GM): Koopa Horns and Spikes are not easy on either of them. Especially with that angry mass and weight. Jr also takes damage.
Beemer: "Sheesh, be easy on the kid."
Digifanatic figures that he can't just sit around attacking... he gives Dragoshi an Ultra Shroom to start his turn...
Dragoshi: *Eats that thar shroom.*
Digifanatic then turns to face Bowser Jr and tries another idea... he starts the motion for an Icy Kick, but instead of a icy glare, it looks like a blast of water is being concealed in that sneaker of his *Elemental Will: Hydro Kick!*...
Wolfman (GM): *washed.*
Dragoshi: *Zooms over to where Digi and Junior are, first off. He then eats another Ultra Shroom. And then, he proceeds to...* *Pull out a pair of throwing scythes out of nowhere and throw 'em at Junior!*
Wolfman (GM): *mauled.*
Dragoshi: *Dragoshi then attempts to strangle Jr. with his tail!*
Wolfman (GM): *caught.*
Dragoshi: *Dragoshi chokes the air out of Jr. and slams him into the ground, throw, and stun!*
Wolfman (GM): ...Dragoshi threw a bit too hard. Jr first hits the wall at the center of the battle arena. THEN the ground. His anger and face didn't help things any bit either.
Dragoshi: "...Whoops." o_o;;
Wolfman (GM): He took some extra damage from that.
Beemer: "Alright, time to--"
Wolfman (GM): ...sirens start up.
Dragoshi: "What the heck?"
Wolfman (GM): All three enemies are going "what"? The sirens stop... and then change into... peppy game show music? Suddenly, a slot machine appears out of nowhere.
Digifanatic: "Been a while since that's happened."
Wolfman (GM): It's not the same slot machine as before though. The slot machine starts to spin... it's not the usual numbers. Alright, modified S3&K slots: something WILL match regardless. In order: Robotnik, Bar, Ring, Tails, Knuckles, Sonic, Jackpot.
Dragoshi: "...Huh. Those're some strange slots."
Wolfman (GM): Butnik, Tails, Bar... Digi and Dragoshi gain 2 coins. Slot machine, music, et al, vanish.
Dragoshi: *Pockets the coins and shrugs.*
Beemer: "...okay, what was that?"
Dragoshi: "...I don't know."
Boomer: "You got me."
Beemer: "...it doesn't matter. You guys have backed yourself into a corner!"
Dragoshi: "Prolly' some sort of strange supernatural event involving a casino game."
Wolfman (GM): Beemer just goes after Digi: can't use all of his punches though. 4 is still plenty, though.
Digifanatic: *Takes the last two.*
Wolfman (GM): Junior now goes after Digi. With Fire!
Bowser Jr: "If I can't steal the paint brush, I'll just steal your life!" *4 claws.*
Dragoshi: *All but 1 hit.*
Wolfman (GM): Boomer now joins in on the action after digi gets hit by fire. 4 more punches Digi's way!
Digifanatic is nearly dead right now... but he's not going to stop himself yet. He continues eyeing BJr... he wants him DOWN! He swings the golf club twice, going for the head both times!
Wolfman (GM): *teed off.*
Digifanatic decides to end his turn trying something he hasn't done yet the whole match... he surrounds himself with Digital Barrier.
Dragoshi: *Dragoshi uses his Phoenix Down, which in turn not only restores him to full HP but grants him another life! Talk about a second wind... Anyway, Dragoshi snaps his fingers, and...* *Three darts try to strike Beemer*
Dragoshi: *Dragoshi then walks over to Junior once again and proceeds to claw him one good!*
Beemer: "...that didn't hurt that much."
Bowser Jr: *clawed.*
Beemer: "You think this barrier is supposed to stop me?"
Digifanatic: .oO(Oh, crap...) "I'll let you answer that on your own."
Wolfman (GM): He UNLOADS his full set of punches against Digi.
Digifanatic: *hit, 2 misses, 3 hits, miss, hit.*
Wolfman (GM): The poorly aimed punch is a wild swing, causing the last one to have half power.
Digifanatic: *Dies, will not revive until it is his turn.*
Bowser Jr: "You wanted a piece of me? Well, time to try something new then!" He might be short, but he still wants to try to grab Dragoshi.
Wolfman (GM): ...he loses his balance, retreats into his shell, and ends up spinning to another part of the arena. He's still in the shell though.
Boomer: "...time to see if I learned this technique right."
Wolfman (GM): He picks up Junior, winds up... and bowls him over to Dragoshi. He then rolls himself over for pin pleasure! Both hit. Junior is out of his shell.
Beemer: "So you still have spunk in you?"
Digifanatic: "Yeah... just because I'm getting tossed around doesn't mean I'm gonna limp this out." *continues attacking Bowser Jr... this time, it's a straight-up Icy Kick.*
Wolfman (GM): *frosted.*
Dragoshi: *And, Dragoshi starts off his turn by attempting to grab Jr. with his tail...*
Wolfman (GM): *yoinked.*
Dragoshi: *And Dragoshi chokes the air out of Junior, then slams him straight into the ground with another Strangle for damage, throw, and stun!*
Wolfman (GM): And this time, it's done properly.
Digifanatic: *That's number three.*
Bowser Jr: "Oh crap..."
Dragoshi: *He makes another mech appear! And, this time instead of taking the machinegun and it aims at Junior, and fires out a massive laser at him!*
Bowser Jr: "MOMMY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"
Wolfman (GM): Junior is spinning... flashing... ...he poofs.
Digifanatic: "Nicely done."
Wolfman (GM): However, he leaves behind a sphere of sorts.
Dragoshi: *Dexes that thar sphere before trying to take it.*
Dex: "Unknown item. Its shape is similar to that of what Boom Booms drop when defeated."
Dragoshi: "...Interesting." *Takes it, so he can have more souvenirs.*
Wolfman (GM): Dragoshi picks it up. He would find himself frozen in place... hearing some sort of victorious music.
Dragoshi: *Stage complete?*
Wolfman (GM): ...there is a problem though.
Dragoshi: *He looks to see if Boomer and Beemer are still there...*
Wolfman (GM): Suddenly, Boomer and Beemer do the equivalent of Trance/Hyper/Limit Break/whatever... ...and maul Dragoshi. He is unable to move: he just takes damage after damage after damage... Dare I say it? Sorry, but Dragoshi didn't count on my trap card. -1 life. the sphere is dropped back on the ground.
Dragoshi: *Dragoshi Revives... Good thing he has a life remaining. e_e*
Digifanatic realizes that they may be screwed, but he has no choice to attack...
Dragoshi: *Is not touching the sphere though.*
Digifanatic does a pair of punches to Boomer... the first gets changed over to an Ice Punch, while the second remains a Fire Punch.
Wolfman (GM): Boomer feels like he's had the Ice Hot patch... not in a good way.
Dragoshi: *Dragoshi walks over to Boomer and attempts to Strangle 'im!*
Digifanatic really starts to feel a sort of rush coming through him... he's been dealing some damage in this fight... .oO(Just one more hit...)
Wolfman (GM): The tail hits... but this is a BIG guy.
Dragoshi: *Boomer gets the air choked out of him... But no throw. Or Grab. Damage, stun. Dragoshi would then flipkick the guy.*
Wolfman (GM): Hit.
Digifanatic: "Keep it up, Dragoshi."
Wolfman (GM): Beemer flies up, again out of just-about-everyone's reach. Boomer decides to grab Digi.
Digifanatic: *OH CRIZZAP.*
Wolfman (GM): Uh oh... He uses the critical opportunity to get some slaps in!
Wolfman (GM): *not.* Another slap: more damage.
Wolfman (GM): ...Digi breaks free.
Digifanatic: "I'm not done until one of you kills me!"
Boomer: "How dare you get out of my clutches!" He rears back... uh oh: power punch coming.
Digifanatic: *That woulda hit anyway.*
Digifanatic: "Alright, Boom..."
Boomer: "You still got spunk?"
Digifanatic: "Let's see." *Fire Lunge!*
Wolfman (GM): *burned.* Digi has gone berserk!
Digifanatic continues trying to rack Boomer's brain around a bit... a Fire Punch to the head!
Wolfman (GM): *spunked.* Digi is at a wall now.
Digifanatic turns back around and ends the turn with a Running Charge right at and up to Boomer's midsection!
Digifanatic: "Dragoshi! Try to finish him off if you can!"
Dragoshi: *Dragoshi decides to Quick Dex Boomer for a HP check.*
Dex: *DING.* "Boomer: 389 damage taken. Max unknown, as stated."
Dragoshi: "Good enough for me." *Dragoshi then proceeds to cast Indignation on Boomer, causing blue sparks and lightning to rain down upon him!*
Wolfman (GM): Hit. Boomer suddenly gets a second wind! No health recharge, but he's a bit more pumped up now.
Dragoshi: *Dragoshi would then slide out his sword, charge up a little bit, then strike Boomer with a lesser Charged Modified Flipkick!*
Wolfman (GM): Both hit.
Beemer: "Fine: if no one comes up to me, I'll come down to you!"
Wolfman (GM): He's making a dive at Digi. This is a big guy, too!
Digifanatic: *The slight defense edge does not pay off.*
Wolfman (GM): Digi has just tasted a Boom Booming ultra HP loss sandwich. Beemer disengages the wings and lands to the right of Digi. As I said, he's angry. He goes after Dragoshi now, with a full set of punches... but what's this? More power, and accuracy to them now?
Dragoshi: *hit, missx3, hit, miss, hitx2.*
Wolfman (GM): no crits, but still: the damage for each is kind of hurting.
Digifanatic sees how Boomer is really getting up there in the damage category. He hopes that with both him and Dragoshi going in a row, Boomer will be KO'd by the time Beemer attacks... so he starts off his turn with another Fire Punch, then does a 180 to face Boomer and smacks him with the golf club...
Wolfman (GM): It hits.
Digifanatic finishes the turn off with an Aerial Strike to Boomer's head!
Wolfman (GM): Hit.
Dragoshi: *Anyway, Dragoshi, being the semi-gambler he is tests his luck again, with...* *A molotov cocktail! Which he launches at Boomer's head!*
Wolfman (GM): That hits. stun doesn't seem to be effective anymore. Boomer is still alive.
Dragoshi: *Dragoshi readies his sword, gets into stance, and attacks Boomer with a Charged Modified Flipkick!*
Dragoshi: *And Drag tosses an Ultra Shroom to the semi beaten-up Digi.*
Beemer: "Good idea Boomer: stick with the basics!"
Digifanatic: .oO(That may or may not be my salvation, Dragoshi...)
Wolfman (GM): Beemer starts off with a standard turn of double punching at Digi.
Digifanatic: *Once again, that extra defensive edge will not do.*
Wolfman (GM): He quickly attempts to grab Digi.
Digifanatic: *Yeah, he's grabbed.*
Beemer: "I'm not going to swing you."
Digifanatic: "But what will you do?"
Beemer: "I'm just going to pile drive you!"
Wolfman (GM): He performs his Zangief stolen atomic buster ripoff on Digi.
Wolfman (GM): He unleashes on Dragoshi again. Again, with his newfound strength.
Digifanatic: *No criticals...*
Dragoshi: *Five hits.*
Wolfman (GM): And Boomer's turn is done.
Digifanatic: "I have a feeling that you should be going down, Boomer!"
Wolfman (GM): Everyone's close to one another. It's near an all out brawl at this point.
Digifanatic tries another Fire Punch on him... he hopes this one does him in!*
Wolfman (GM): He's not dead yet!
Digifanatic: "Come on!" *finishes the turn with a round of Celestial Fury!*
Wolfman (GM): Both hit.
Digifanatic: *END OF DAMAGE BOOST.*
Wolfman (GM): He's STILL not dead yet. It's difficult to read a Boom Boom's emotions when he's all pumped up full of angst and rage and wanting to move super fast.
Dragoshi: *Dragoshi... Pulls out a Trimate and Drinks it! He's fully healed! He also gives Digi a Trimate, fully healing him as well! Ha! Then Dragoshi would proceed to cast Ice Tornado on Boomer!*
Digifanatic: "Oh yes! Thank you thank you!"
Dragoshi: "No prob."
Digifanatic: "If those were the only two you had... very good timing."
Wolfman (GM): Boomer is still alive.
Dragoshi: "..." *Dragoshi, still annoyed that Boomer won't friggin' go down already Flipkicks him in agitation!*
Wolfman (GM): And he's still alive!!! Will this madness end?
Digifanatic: .oO(Why hasn't anyone warped in? Is everybody ASLEEP?!)
Beemer: "Since you guys wish to heal yourselves so much, I might as well take you both on!"
Wolfman (GM): He goes after both of you... via a cheap ripoff of Zangief's spinning lariat! And it's a long spin too!
Dragoshi: *All but one misses Dragoshi!*
Wolfman (GM): Boomer saw the move and how effective it was.
Wolfman (GM): So... he copies! And of course, this move is more powerful due to his trance-like state.
Digifanatic: *He's dead.*
Dragoshi: *One, two! Two hits!*
Digifanatic: *GAME OVER UNLESS DRAG HAS ONE MORE PDOWN.*
Wolfman (GM): If Dragoshi has another Phoenix down, I'm going to hurt him.
Dragoshi: *And, Dragoshi flipkicks Boomer again!*
Wolfman (GM): AND BOOMER IS ALIVE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ...or not. He flashes, he goes Boom, he leaves a sphere.
Dragoshi: "..." *Stays away from the sphere, and Quick Dexes Beemer to see what his HP is.*
Dex: "Beemer HP: 201 lost."
Beemer: "You killed my brother! I'm going to make you pay!"
Dragoshi: "...So, it's just the two of us..." *Cue music that's usually heard in western flicks... As Dragoshi runs twenty feet away from Beemer, and Tidal Blasts him!*
Wolfman (GM): *soaked.* *plus a super soaker.* Beemer goes for two punches against Dragoshi.
Wolfman (GM): *AGAIN.*
Dragoshi: *One fail, one hit.*
Wolfman (GM): He then attempts to grab Dragoshi!
Dragoshi: *FAIL MAN.*
Wolfman (GM): ...he falls flat on his face. however, while he did take damage... that's not a good thing for Dragoshi. His spikes went up.
Dragoshi: *Just goes into defense mode.*
Wolfman (GM): Beemer gets up, and sees that Dragoshi is trying to defend himself.
Beemer: "It didn't work for your other pal, pal! I'll just stomp ya!"
Wolfman (GM): He leaps up, and prepares to land on Dragoshi.
Dragoshi: "You forget my dodging prowess."
Wolfman (GM): *...yeah, that.*
Dragoshi: *And Drag dances outta the way!*
Wolfman (GM): So, he roll recovers... and possibly into Dragoshi!
Dragoshi: *Another dance!*
Wolfman (GM): He's five feet to the left of Dragoshi now.
Dragoshi: *Anyway, Dragoshi readies his sword once again, charges up a little bit, and attempts to strike Beemer with a C. Modified Flipkick!*
Beemer: .oO(I can't believe he dodged that!)
Wolfman (GM): Both hit.
Dragoshi: *Dragoshi then focuses as the wind chills drastically, signaling something.* "...May the chilling winds consume you! ICE TORNADO!" *Suddenly, a massive tornado of ice appears to strike down Beemer!*
Wolfman (GM): *iced.*
Wolfman (GM): ...Dragoshi has gotten HIM angry now.
Wolfman (GM): So, 8 punches Dragoshi's way, at powered up discounts. BOOM BOOM.
Dragoshi: *...what the christ.*
Dragoshi: *He drinks his second- And last Trimate. He then proceeds to...* *Fling an Amethyst shard at Beemer!*
Wolfman (GM): *sharded.*
Dragoshi: *Dragoshi then attempts to immolate Beemer with his FIAR BREATH.*
Beemer: *moves too fast.* *8 punch maul.*
Dragoshi: *...5 hits. @_@* *Dragoshi then proceeds to cast Indignation on Beemer, because yes!*
Digifanatic: *OH BABY.*
Wolfman (GM): Both hit, and a crit.
Dragoshi: *Aside from eating an Ultra Shroom, nothing else.*
Wolfman (GM): Beemer uses 3 luckies... his only ones. He hits!
Dragoshi: *...XD. FAIL MAN.*
Dragoshi: *Eats an Ultra Shroom, and...* *Gets bitten by a spider .* *And, Drag eats another U. Shroom.*
Wolfman (GM): *insert comment here.* More damage.
Dragoshi: *And, Dragoshi does something questionable... Casting Ice Tornado on himself . ...* "...Ya know. Screw this. I'm going all-out." *He then pulls out... THE CONTRACT. And signs it. He then collapses, being engulfed by flames and lightning, and after all of that subsides...*
Beemer: "... ...?"
Lich Dragoshi: *He gets up, wearing armor that's the color of scorched earth, and looking mighty skeletal. ...Oh, and he has creepy acid green eyes. Wiggy.* "...Hahaha..."
Lich Dragoshi: "Now... TREMBLE BEFORE MY AWESOME POWER!" *Suddenly, another Ice Tornado strikes... This time it's coming at Beemer, attempting to rip him up!*
Lich Dragoshi: *Shrugs.* "...I must be off."
Beemer: *yelling* "I might be enraged, but I'm not stupid! You just signed a contract with the devil!"
Lich Dragoshi: "It's more like a contract with a bunch of annoying imps of some high-end evil that died. But, still. You got me on a technicality. I think."
Beeme: *yelling* "It doesn't matter! I doubt even a devil can penetrate my armor!" ...he hides into his super spiked shell of superness.
Lich Dragoshi: "...Does it truly matter?" *He attempts to use his scythe to reap Beemer from his shell.*
Wolfman (GM): Not high enough.
Lich Dragoshi: *And again!*
Wolfman (GM): Dragoshi gets his scythe stuck in the ground.
Lich Dragoshi: *Lets it go. He attempts flipkick him. >_>*
Wolfman (GM): Back at Dragoshi. He hit the spikes.
Lich Dragoshi: *Eh.*
Wolfman (GM): Then no damage.
Beemer: .oO(...if this is the coward's way out, so be it.) *stays hidden.*
Lich Dragoshi: *And Dragoshi once again tries to yank that damn Beemer OUTTA THERE.*
Wolfman (GM): Nope.
Lich Dragoshi: *He tries again.*
Wolfman (GM): Nada.
Lich Dragoshi: *And he tries sticking his tail into there and try and STRANGLE him outta there!*
Wolfman (GM): If Dragoshi can find a legit way to try to squeeze a big waist band with that tail when there is no visible head or anything, he should tell me.
Lich Dragoshi: *Well, I guess I'm gonna have to play 'nutcracker' with this thing then.*
Beemer: *hides again.* .oO(When will this end?!? I'm angry that I have to hide!)
Wolfman (GM): On my count, Dragoshi has one last turn on this. So good luck, and make it count.
Lich Dragoshi: "...Ah, flux it." *He takes the sphere that Junior drop seeing as Beemer's being a chicken. :p*
Wolfman (GM): Dragoshi is paused. Music comes in. Beemer comes out of hiding and mauls him.
Lich Dragoshi: *Still invincible, so meh.*
Wolfman (GM): He's practically in another rage... but Dragoshi is still paused. Boom Boom on anger? Tire out? HA! But, I am correct in that Dragoshi's death is coming, right?
Lich Dragoshi: *Yeaaa...*
Wolfman (GM): Which means Boom Boom uses HIS entire turn to try to hurt Dragoshi, which fails... and then... well, you do your own cutscene for how this works.
Lich Dragoshi: *Not like it matters. Anyway... Dragoshi is struck by a sharp and sudden pain, causing him to fall over, and revert back to normal. Game over, folks. Also, thanks for not coming in to help, other people. >_>;;*
Wolfman (GM): But now it's MY turn for a cutscene. Dragoshi technically did last "long enough" for the orbs effects to work. While Beemer is still in a rage, the orb suddenly causes water to flow. ...a lot of water. The Fortress is filling up with water fast. Suddenly, it can't hold onto it any more. All bodies somehow get transported to HQ's Med Bay, with the Questers all unconcious for the next few hours. The water is flowing and going and rowing and frowing as it should. The Questers have fixed the plumbing or whatever it was that was going on. But now... there's got a glitch in the system. The Questers all won... but they lost. So... I have one more thing to do. Dragoshi, Digi, and Darkdata are all wiped out, unconcious, on the med bay beds. Two doctors come in without them knowing: they are THAT out of it.
Dr Mario: "Wow: Dead-a Questers! Now what do we-a take this-a time?"
Dr Gadd: "Now hold on my feisty friend... see what the dragon has?"
Wolfman (GM): The two notice the paintbrush that Dragoshi has.
Dr Gadd: "That's the paintbrush that was stolen from me by one of those koopalings! It's a LOT more valuable than the coins you usually raid!"
Dr Mario: "...if you say-a so..."
Wolfman (GM): The two take back Gadd's brush, then Doc Mario puts in a Megavitamin in each of the Questers. They all will wake up shortly. Mission... Complete? I don't know: you tell me!
Digifanatic: "Well, that was nuts."
Dragoshi: "...Yea. That was insane. Then again, there were only the three of us. ...That and no one came to help..."
Wolfman enters the Med Bay, seeing at least two are awake. "So, how are you two doing?"
Dragoshi: "Good, good."
Digifanatic: "I'm decent. Crazy fish."
Wolfman: "I take it it's been awhile since you guys have had such an intense mission?"
Digifanatic: "Well, it was just three of us doing the dirty work..."
Digifanatic: "And three became two... and two became Drag."
Dragoshi: "And, well, you know the rest."
Wolfman: "I couldn't help that fully. Oak was still trying to get the hang of the system."
Wolfman: "And my attention was elsewhere for a good deal of the battle."
Dragoshi: "And, the other Questers couldn't help, because...?"
Digifanatic: "Who knows."
Wolfman: "Now when will Metal get up? He's going to be a little upset that a mission went by without him. I'm unsure how many other Questers were active tonight, to be honest. And you know that I had to stay at the base this time."
Digifanatic: "Right, right."
Wolfman: "Either way, the mission was logged, and noted. This will be a good one to study. After all, we will all need to be ready to take out the Destroyer."
Dragoshi: "Pretty much, yea."
Digifanatic: "Alexia have any luck?"
Wolfman: "She's in the bed behind you."
Digifanatic: *turns around.* "Ah."
Wolfman (GM): Of course, her bed has medical restraints and whatnot on it.
Digifanatic: *muttering to Dragoshi.* "Screw the keyboards, I'm getting that Phoenix Down and I'm going to rest in my room..."
Wolfman: "I would recommend resting there tonight. You are still a little weak."
Dragoshi: *Muttering to Digi.*"'Kay." *Out loud, looking at Alexia.* "...I see."
Digifanatic: "Yeah, I imagine."
Wolfman: "Get some sleep, the both of you. You two need it. Afterwords, I'll see what I can do about getting Yoshi and Kirby to make you some good breakfast."
Dragoshi: "'Kay. Thanks."
Digifanatic: "Oh, nice..."
Wolfman: "Take things easy, the both of you." *he goes go leave.*
Digifanatic: "You got it."
Digifanatic: "Alright." *slowly tries to get out of a bed, a bit sensitive but alright for the most part.* "I think I got it for now." *walks out, buys his PDown, and heads up to his bed.*
