Super Smash Quest - Story - Chapter 386: The Faker and the Hand-Smacker
Date: July 10th and 11th, 2007.
Metal Man (GM): The group's at HQ, as usual, with Metal overseeing some pictures of Johto from above.
Metal Man: "Hmmm...
Wolfman is at the Big Room... but wonders when he can fight Master Hand. .oO(I owe him that match.)
Digifanatic waits for now.
Darkdata: "So, we have to go to that tower right? Where of course, 'something' will be waiting for us."
Alexia: "...Why is it called the Tin Tower, anyways? That's kind of an odd name..."
Metal Man: "Beats me. Crazy Pokemon people don't know how to name anything."
Wolfman is only slightly paying attention.
Alexia: "Are we still most likely not going to see any enemies in there?"
Darkdata: "Well, random pokemon attacks. Everyone's favorite Zubat."
Metal Man: "Well, there's still wild pokemon. Plus the tower is haunted. Basically, the emblem's hidden at the bottom, so you'll have to climb over some ruins on your way."
Metal Man: "Of course, a lot of time passed... it may have moved slightly."
Metal Man opens the warp. "Either way... I hope it's quick. We're still short on time."
Darkdata: I thought there was two towers in that town?
Dragoshi: *Nods, then enters the warp.*
Wolfman enters... not having fully paid attention. .oO(I want that match...)
Metal Man: "Two towers, yes. But the Tin Tower is the one of interest."'
Darkdata: "Meh." *Runs into the warp.*
Alexia heads into the warp as well.
Metal Man (GM): WARP. The Questers appear in Ecrufreak... er... teak... city. It's dark here... sort of night-time ish.
Alexia: "Nice place..."
Alexia looks around for the Tin Tower.
Darkdata: "It looks like a 8-bit town to me."
Wolfman: "...what is this place...?"
Dragoshi: *Walks over to the Tin Tower seeing as it's prolly' not hard to miss or something... Unless I'm missing something here. :p*
Metal Man (GM): The first puzzle is thus; Metal messed up something, as Tin Tower is not ruined; one off to the left IS ruined. Tin Tower extends high into the sky... so high that ol' Charley probably would have liked it.
Wolfman: "...umm... guys, did something happen? I think we got our Towers mixed up."
Darkdata: "I don't think so, I think the Smash Emblem is reacting to something."
Digifanatic takes out his Dex.
Dragoshi: "...Want me to Dex 'im about that little mistake?"
Alexia: "I don't think so. I think something's fishy here."
Darkdata brings out his harp and uses it's power of magic detection.
Alexia: "Sure, go ahead."
Metal Man (GM): The harp detects magic in both towers. However the ruined one has more magic.
Dragoshi: *Pulls out Dex, calls Metal.* "Yea... Metal. You screwed up there. The Tin Tower isn't the ruined one." :/
Darkdata: "... Odd."
Alexia: "What's up, Dark?"
Wolfman: "So, which one do we check out?"
Darkdata: "The ruined one seems to be giving off a stronger magical energy. However the giant tower is giving off energy too."
Metal Man: (Dex) "Uh... I can't tell then. You guys find out."
Darkdata: "Look, these things are tourist traps anyway, there should be a sign somewhere saying 'this is X tower'"
Wolfman: "Let's try the Tin Tower first: since it's up, we can get information."
Dragoshi: *Puts his Dex away.*
Digifanatic: "Good play, Wolf."
Alexia: "Then let's go before the ghosts come out."
Alexia: "...Hey, it's haunted, right?"
Wolfman will follow Dragoshi.
Darkdata: "Spirits are only scary if you fall for their illusions."
Digifanatic: "Yeah." *starts walking for the Tin Tower.*
Darkdata just follows the rest.
Dragoshi: *Heads on over to the Tin Tower as well...*
Alexia follows the others to the Tin Tower.
Metal Man (GM): The Questers walk to the tin tower. The doors are simple Japanese style; they can be easily opened.
Digifanatic: *opens door.*
Wolfman: .oO(Finally, easy to open doors.)
Alexia: "I'll go in first and make sure the place is safe."
Alexia takes out her gun and heads in.
Wolfman: "Put it away Alexia."
Alexia: "...Sure." *puts her gun away, then heads in.*
Metal Man (GM): There are some people battling pokemon. They see the Questers and stop, and an older Japanese man turns to the group.
Dragoshi: "..." .oO(Why must people say such stupid things.)
Man: "Hello... uh... what do you need?"
Darkdata: "Has there been any change in the towers lately?"
Man: "No, even with those explosions, they have been protected all this time."
Wolfman: "...what tower did collapse next door exactly?"
Man: "The Brass tower? It fell over long ago. Yes. The outer space explosions. Entire planets erased!"
Darkdata: .oO(Thought so.)
Wolfman: "...we're trying to help prevent more planets from being erased. However, we are looking for some mystical items. We heard one of them was in... well, I'm unsure which tower now."
Dragoshi: "...Oh! I'm sorry if we interrupted anything, but..." *Pulls out a pen and paper and starts quickly drawing something down on it, then shows it to the Man, revealing what he was drawing to be the Smash Emblems.* "Anything that looked like these?"
Man: "A lightning bolt hit that other tower, the Brass tower, about 150 years ago... Its guardian, Lugia, left long ago."
Man: "Smash... Emblem?" He shakes his head. "I've never seen anything like that, although no one goes very high in this tower or very low in those ruins. They're both haunted."
Darkdata: "Some mess with the other legendary birds right?"
Alexia: "Er... haunted by what, exactly? Dead Pokemon?"
Man: "Ghosts... yes. Dead pokemon. Humans once killed pokemon out of jealousy of Ho-oh's power... they now haunt those places. Many also died when Brass tower was destroyed."
Digifanatic: "Ohhhh maaaan."
Alexia: "What a sad reason to kill..."
Wolfman: "...we wish to have permission to explore the high floors of this tower and the basements of the Brass Tower. Where do we go for that?"
Darkdata: "Wolfman, we only need to explore below."
Man: "Permission?" He chuckles. "They're haunted! There's nothing much to find... the ghosts keep trespassers away."
Darkdata: "Remember, he said is was deep down."
Digifanatic: "We've dealt with worse."
Wolfman nods his head.
Man: "So you may look where you wish... but remember..." He speaks somewhat quietly. "Ho-oh still guards the sacred places..."
Alexia: "I don't plan to be offending him, sir."
Wolfman: *quietly.* "Understood. We'll do what we can for peace should it get to that point. Is there anything else we should be aware of before we explore? Another person has arrived here... he is mysterious, and we've heard about him before."
Man: "He is incredibly powerful. I would avoid him and his pokemon at all costs!"
Wolfman: "Who exactly?"
Alexia: "What's his name?"
Wolfman: .oO(This is probably someone familiar...) "Of course, he is a fair trainer, so he will not fight unless you approach him... but his name has been lost... heh... sorry."
Digifanatic: .oO(Gotta be Max.)
Darkdata: *mumble.* "We should of brought Mewtwo..."
Alexia: "We'll be on the lookout. Thank you, sir."
Darkdata: "Anyway, guys, we should get going down one of the towers. I vote for the ruined tower, I don't know about the rest of you though.
Metal Man (GM): There's the stairs up here, and also the other tower.
Alexia heads to the other tower.
Darkdata: "Wait... maybe we should head up first... I don't know why I am thinking this though. Hmm..."
Dragoshi: "...Dammit, must people be so hasty."
Digifanatic: "That's possible. I'll take whatever as long as the end result is what we desire. I'm cool either way."
Darkdata: *Yelling.* "ALEXIA GET BACK HERE."
Metal Man (GM): Alexia is already at the other tower. Its ruined base is all that remains.
Darkdata: "Yeah, so are we all going up, or are we going to follow speedy?"
Digifanatic: "Hang on."
Digifanatic tries to ring Alexia up on his Dex.
Metal Man (GM): Alexia's dex rings.
Wolfman: "...I'm thinking we should go up for some reason."
Digifanatic: *through Dex.* "Looking at what you see, do you think it's best that we check the tower you went for first, or do you feel it better to come back where we are?"
Alexia opens up her Dex. "Well, all that's left of this tower is the bottom..."
Digifanatic: *Dex.* "Okay..."
Alexia closes her Dex and heads back to the Tin Tower.
Digifanatic: *closes Dex, unsure if he can see Alexia running back or not.*
Wolfman has no objections to going up.
Dragoshi: *And, Dragoshi... Walks on up the steps. Whee.*
Alexia sighs and heads up the steps with the others.
Darkdata follows trying not to trip.
Digifanatic: *heads up.*
Wolfman goes up.
Metal Man (GM): The Questers go up... empty room. Stairs continue upwards
Digifanatic: *keeps going.*
Alexia: "Nice night out there..."
Metal Man (GM): The old wooden steps creak; the Questers see the old white wallpaper tearing in places...
Alexia continues up.
Wolfman will go up... slowly.
Dragoshi: *Up. Though, slowly as not to disturb anything. :p*
Metal Man (GM): The Questers continue up; it continues to become more dusty and abandoned. Some floorboards are busted now, but there are even more stairs up... there's no lights above here, though, so only the light of the moon through cracks illuminates it now.
Darkdata: "Guys, going slow will not stop the ghosts from noticing us."
Wolfman uses his Wolf Senses to keep going.
Alexia: "...Guess there was no curse on that hide after all, huh? Otherwise it probably would've activated by now."
Dragoshi: "Nah. The curse was removed when it got burnt up and whatnot.""
Alexia continues up the stairs again. Whee.
Digifanatic takes a quick stop and checks out the vicinity with his energy binoculars.
Dragoshi: *And, Dragoshi moves along making sure to avoid the busted floorboards...*
Darkdata follows too.
Metal Man (GM): The group continues up, and a strange man is on this floor.
???: "Who goes there?"
Metal Man (GM): He wears... very old looking clothes, and has a cane. His face is wrinkled and he has weird rounded glasses, and a weird-looking hat.
Wolfman: "Travelers, looking for items that can hopefully stop further planets from being erased by a chaotic force."
Darkdata: "Also Non-pokemon trainers."
???: "Ah? So you are?"
Dragoshi: "What they said..."
Metal Man (GM): He turns to the Questers and bows.
Name Rater: "Well, I am the name Rater. What are your names?"
Darkdata: "I am er... Darkdata?"
Wolfman: "Wolfman is my code name."
Alexia: *blink.* "...Alexia."
Name Rater: "Argh! Ack! Such horrible names! Were your parents drunk or something? Wait a minute... I have a solution!"
Darkdata: "What is your name, Name Rater?"
Alexia: *thinking.* "Uh-oh..."
Dragoshi: "..." .oO(Good thing I didn't say my name.) >_>;;
Wolfman: "...I believe that is his name, Darkdata."
Name Rater: "I'll tell you eventually. But first!" He hands a pad to Alexia. "Write what you think would be a good name!"
Darkdata: "Don't do it."
Name Rater: "Well. Name Rater IS my name... ...because I forgot my real one..."
Alexia: "Wouldn't you be better at choosing a good name, sir?"
Darkdata: Well you write the name you would think that would be good for you on your pad."
Dragoshi: *Out of boredom, Dragoshi scrutinizes the motives of the Name Rater. >_>*
Name Rater: "Yes... you're right!"
Darkdata: "Guys we should hurry along."
Metal Man (GM): Dragoshi would think the Name Rater wants to improve people's... names? The Name Rater points at Alexia.
Alexia: "No, wait, I have one."
Name Rater: "Oh. That is?"
Alexia writes down "Kline" on the pad.
Dragoshi: .oO(...He just wants to improve upon the names of others. ...Not that that makes any sense in itself.)
Name Rater: "Excellent! That shall now be Wolfman's name! He shall be known as Kline! Now... Darkdata... that's a horrible, bad, no-good name... Wouldn't you like a real name, Darkdata?"
Darkdata: "Only if I get to name you." *Grins evilly.*
Name Rater: "Uh..." He scratches his chin. "Fair trade, I guess. What would you want to be called?"
Darkdata: "Your name is written on a sign in Goldenrod City, you have to get your name first. Come back here tomorrow, I will be here, really!"
Alexia: "...Don't taunt the Name Rater."
Darkdata: "Anyway, sorry to joke around with you, but we really must be continuing our search. Right guys...?"
Name Rater: "..." He shakes his head. "What about you, Alexia? Unless you must continue? Yes?"
Darkdata zooms up the stairs.
Alexia: "Depends. Are you going to hurt me if I say yes?"
Name Rater: "No."
Metal Man (GM): Digi can always talk to the Name Rater.
Alexia: "Okay. Sorry I couldn't stick around."
Alexia heads up the stairs.
Metal Man (GM): Digi would catch up.
Name Rater: "What about you... late person? Want to change your name? Er... what is your name?"
Digifanatic: "I'm sorry, I'm in a hurry. Maybe later."
Name Rater: "BLECH!!! I'm sorry, I'm in a hurry? That's the worst name ever!"
Digifanatic: *heads up.* *RUNS!*
Name Rater: "Crazy named people running up these stairs... I'll never forget when "Put your hands up, this is a robbery" came up here..."
Metal Man (GM): The Questers reach the next floor, which has no Name Rater. This floor instead has a pile of debris blocking the stairs up.
Kline takes out his dex. "What is my name?" *to Dex, not Metal.*
Alexia starts moving the debris away using her TK.
Dex: "Your name is Kline... Kline."
Metal Man (GM): Wow... that's some effective magic all right.
Kline: "Alexia, I'm going to hurt you!"
Metal Man (GM): Alexia clears the debris. But a ghost flies out of it! Not any ghost, either. A Haunter.
Dragoshi: "...What the heck."
Haunter: "Who dares invade this holy place???"
Alexia: "...Pizza delivery?"
Darkdata: "People trying to stop the world from being destroyed."
Dragoshi: *Looks at the Haunter.* "...Well, the only reason we'd be 'invading' this place as you so bluntly put it is to-Yea. What he said."
Kline: "We are looking for an item that can stop more planets from being destroyed. Would you know if we are in the right place?"
Haunter: "World being destroyed? There's nothing up here but Ho-oh. Who will burn you to cinders for trespassing!"
Darkdata: "We are looking for the Smash Emblem. well, one of them."
Haunter: "Except for... ...whoever you are. I can't even tell what you are, let alone how to hit you." He points at Kline.
Alexia: "What about in the other tower?"
Dragoshi: "...So. No Smash Emblem in this place, then?"
Haunter: "I don't tell strangers the secrets of the other tower... what're you talking to me for anyway? Aren't you supposed to be scared?"
Digifanatic: *He tries to determine the Haunter's motive.*
Dragoshi: "...Not really. I've faced worse." :/
Alexia: "I'm very familiar with ghosts, anyways."
Darkdata: "We have seen much worse. Including the sum of all evil. Which really does not like Barney..."
Kline: "We recently had to visit another haunted house. It gave us a lot of creeps."
Dragoshi: "And annoyance. Don't forget annoyance."
Digifanatic: *Tries checking against to see if there really is no Smash Emblem up there.*
Alexia: "So, um... any way we can help you rest in peace?"
Metal Man (GM): Digi's pretty sure there's no Smash Emblem up here.
Haunter: "No... except... to turn back! For the ghosts do not wish for you to traipse on their graves."
Digifanatic: *quietly.* "You know, I got a pretty good feeling he's right..."
Darkdata: "Ah, well say hello to Ho-Oh for us. I guess we better head to the other tower guys."
Kline: "Understood. Thanks again Haunter."
Alexia: "Good luck on getting back to the other side." *heads back down the tower.*
Dragoshi: "...'Kay." *Follows.*
Kline follows Drag.
Darkdata: "Also, don't scare the poor old name rater too much, K?"
Darkdata goes down.
Digifanatic: *heads on out, trying to mingle in the middle of the group.*
Haunter: "He named me No guarantees for a reason..." He laughs and fades."
Metal Man (GM): The Questers head back down, and quickly get to the bottom... The way to the Brass Tower is now open.
Darkdata: "So the other tower it is."
Darkdata heads over to the tower.
Dragoshi: *Heads on over to said tower, motioning for the others to follow.*
Alexia: "But the other tower was--never mind."
Alexia heads to the other tower with the others.
Kline goes down into the Brass Tower then...
Digifanatic: *Brass Tower!*
Alexia heads into the Brass Tower's base.
Metal Man (GM): The door there is stuck shut.
Darkdata: ·oO(Was the strong magic I detected Ho-oh?)
Darkdata gives it a small shove.
Metal Man (GM): It stays shut.
Darkdata: "odd. Dragoshi, do you want to try?"
Dragoshi: "...Sure." *Tries to give it a shove himself...*
Digifanatic: *Assists if necessary.*
Metal Man (GM): The Questers break it open, revealing a ruined floor. There's a sign on the floor.
Kline reads the sign.
Dragoshi: *Sign saying...*
Metal Man (GM): 'BRASS TOWER - Destroyed 150 years ago. Mysterious energy resides down here... beware!'
Darkdata: "Well, if that is not a sign I don't know what is. *coughs.*
Kline: "Very funny. Let's enter."
Dragoshi: "Let's just move on."
Digifanatic: "Oh, then the binoculars will be jumping this time."
Alexia steps over the sign and into the tower.
Dragoshi: *Anyway... he looks for the paths down.*
Kline: .oO(I want my name back!)
Digifanatic: *heads in.*
Metal Man (GM): The Questers enter further... the way down is a padlocked cellar door.
Kline attempts to pick the lock with his claws. .oO(shiny new claws.) :D
Darkdata: "Hmm, good idea Wolfman."
Metal Man (GM): The lock opens.
Darkdata: "I refuse to call you by your Crazy Deloth(tm) name."
Digifanatic: "That was never part of her name."
Alexia: "...Is Del here?"
Alexia looks around.
Digifanatic: "Probably not."
Metal Man (GM): There's a ladder down from there.
Kline: "I'll go down first."
Darkdata: "In my homeworld, Deloth is a name for Alexia."
Dex: "Deloth was crushed by Kuja's own tower falling on him."
Darkdata: "Hence my confusion." <_<
Kline goes down using wolf-like ability.
Darkdata follows slowly.
Dragoshi: "...An entire tower?" *Winces.* "...Ouch."
Dex: "Kuja's tower, including the Dimensional cannon."
Alexia just heads down the ladder.
Dex: "It fell on him and Zorn and Thorn to boot..."
Digifanatic: "Oh man, thoooooooose two..."
Dragoshi: .oO(I'd ask for how that even happened, but I prolly' shouldn't do that at the moment...)
Digifanatic: *heads down.*
Dex: "If he survived... so would Zorn and Thorn. And they were... real."
Dragoshi: "...Well the stupidly impossible has happened before."
Metal Man (GM): Down below the Questers see some real old stuff. This place hasn't been entered in ages. A bunch of footsteps lead across through a pile of rubble to a small, stretched-looking tree. There is seemingly no other way down from here.
Kline gets the Dex to scan for a path or false wall or something.
Dragoshi: *Dexes the tree to see if there's anything odd about it.*
Digifanatic: *puts on his binocs again to see if, true to his predictions, there is some mad radiance down there.*
Dex: "This... is a tree. It may or may not have significance, like this room."
Metal Man (GM): Digi sees energy deep below. There's a ways to go.
Alexia heads forward and knocks on the tree truck.
Digifanatic: *takes them off.* "Keep going down."
Darkdata: "Hmm, we should keep going..."
Digifanatic: "However we shall."
Kline wonders about the tree... he sniffs it.
Metal Man (GM): But there's no further way down... Alexia knocks on the tree. It hits the wall, making a hollow noise. Kline smells the tree. The tree smells of wall insulation.
Kline: "...guys, something is up with this tree. Why does it smell of wall insulation?"
Darkdata: "Rip it open and find out?"
Dragoshi: "...Maybe 'cause it's not a real tree."
Kline goes Berserker Barrage on it!
Digifanatic sees if he can get some sort of map to this place down here, or if his Dex has lost communication.
Metal Man (GM): Digi finds no map is available.
Digifanatic: *puts Dex away.*
Metal Man (GM): Kline beats it up and knocks free a panel, revealing a switch...
Kline pulls it.
Alexia: "...Talk about knocking on wood."
Kline: .oO(I want my name back!!!!)
Darkdata: "Go Kliney go!"
Metal Man (GM): The floor swings open, and a way further down appears.
Digifanatic: "Well done." *starts heading down, however it may be.*
Dragoshi: "...That was simple enough. Anyway... Down we go." *Moseys on along.*
Alexia continues down.
Kline follows them.
Metal Man (GM): The Questers walk down. They see not much, but another stairway down and a man in red clothes clutching a pokeball in the corner.
Kline stops moving, and looks... well, NOT in his direction.
Metal Man (GM): It's dim, so they only see his weird expression on his face.
Darkdata: "Hmm, now where are those stairs?"
Kline can't look at the weird expression without looking him into the eye... drat. "...there is someone in my side vision, isn't there? If so, can we please know who you are?"
Metal Man (GM): He says nothing.
Alexia starts heading for the stairs, turning her head to avoid eye contact, because seriously. This is bizarre.
Digifanatic takes the binoculars out one more time.
Metal Man (GM): The binoculars show there is lots of power in this person too.
Digifanatic: *takes them off and puts them back.* *quietly.* "Okay, there is some serious energy ripping through this guy..."
Alexia: *quietly.* "Just keeeeep walking."
Digifanatic: *q* "Judging by that last tower, probably not ethereal form..."
Darkdata: "I need to invest in a light spell."
Kline: *to mysterious guy.* "...can you say anything?"
Digifanatic: *keeps moving.*
Metal Man (GM): He reaches for his belt.
Kline will just hurry on down the stairs then. .oO(...I have a feeling I made a mistake)
Darkdata walks towards the stairs.
Metal Man (GM): The strange red trainer stares at the Questers as they leave.
Darkdata: "Anyway, we have no pokemon. What could we do, stair his pokemon to death?"
Metal Man (GM): The new area is at the bottom of the stairs. There's an old, old statue down here. It shows Master Hand! Obviously this must be what the Questers are looking for.
Dragoshi: "And, there we go."
Kline nods... slowly. "...there is a trap. And I think we passed the guardian of that trap. ...remember the Ho-oh the old man talked about? I think he had it."
Metal Man (GM): The statue says one thing.
Statue Writing: 'Beneath this relic is what ye seeketh.'
Dragoshi: *Looks beneath the statue. >_>*
Darkdata: "Erm, there is text on the stature Kline."
Metal Man (GM): The statue appears to be sitting atop whatever its mentioned.
Kline stays at the back... keeping his senses open.
Dragoshi: *Looks at how big the statue is.*
Metal Man (GM): It's about 10 feet tall and 5 feet wide/deep.
Digifanatic: *tries to start giving it a push.*
Alexia looks at the ground near the statue. She looks for any scratch marks, tracks, et cetera.
Darkdata searches for marks of it being moved.
Metal Man (GM): The Questers push it off. A glowing emblem floats out---*SNATCH!* Somebody grabbed it!
Alexia whirls around, gun drawn. "Alright, hand it over!"
Digifanatic: .oO(That reminds me of my Digivice... except nobody stole it.)
Metal Man (GM): A pair of red eyes look at the Questers in the darkness, speaking eerily.
Darkdata: *Call item clearsong.* -The Emblem.-
Metal Man (GM): Darkdata's magic fails.
Darkdata: *or not.*
???: "What, did you think I'd come all this way to give it back?"
Metal Man (GM): The emblem's magic is protecting whoever stole it!
Dragoshi: "...Just step out already."
???: "I don't need to do that... slick."
Digifanatic: .oO(OH DANG IT'S ON!)
Metal Man (GM): *BOOOM* The statue explodes, and an empowered Doopliss holds the emblem.
Dragoshi: "...That you, Doop Scoop? ...Thought so."
Doopliss: "Oh... you wouldn't believe how long I've been following you to get this..."
Alexia: "Oh, you are DEAD, you little sack of--" *Gatling.*
Metal Man (GM): He laughs as the Quester attacks bounce off a shield of his. Garrick is warped in.
Doopliss: "The Shadow Queen mentioned it a looong time ago... and then Mario killed her..."
Darkdata: "Dammit magic makers, this is why you enchant it so the bad guys can't use it."
Kline doesn't attack yet... oh great.
Doopliss: "The Void was stupid. He doesn't know these exist, or at least he doesn't understand it."
Garrick: "What exists?"
Alexia nudges Dragoshi.
Darkdata: "So you gave up your life of acting for crime." *Boo.*
Doopliss: "And you guys never understood my allegiance to anyone. Because with the Shadow Queen dead, I'm technically the new Demon of Rogueport. Problem was... I had no Crystal stars."
Alexia: *quietly.* "Your gun can break barriers, right?"
Kline: "...get to the point Doopliss."
Doopliss: "Acting? Pfah. I acted long enough. Enough to get to your blasted realm outside my own."
Garrick: "...yo, ghosty guy."
Doopliss: "Don't rush me; I have the ultimate power of this realm."
Garrick: *waves his hand in front of Doopliss.*
Alexia: "I'm sensing some major bitterness here."
Dragoshi: *Nods in response.* *On both counts.*
Doopliss: "I was at first a peaceful person, but that miserable Charles Magellean wasted my time and my knowledge."
Garrick: "What's that thing there?"
Doopliss: "Grunty also wasted my resources, and Zylcon ignored me. Kuja tried to kill me a number of times."
Kline is unsure what to do here... attack, let them talk, sing of yellow submarines...
Alexia: "An evil shape-shifting quilt wearing a party hat. Anything else?"
Doopliss: "No more! I have the power of this Smash Emblem... I can take on all of you at once! And I know the perfect form to do it in, too!"
Dragoshi: "...You're being an imbecile."
Kline: "Oh no you don't!"
Garrick: "...what's a Smash Emblem?"
Kline attempts to tackle Doopliss first.
Metal Man (GM): Kline bounces off his force field.
Kline gets bounced back.
Doopliss: "Foolish Kline... you cannot stop this." The glowing orb with a sword symbol sinks into Doopliss.
Kline: .oO(...yeah, real smooth.)
Alexia: "First, we kill the bedsheet. THEN we explain."
Metal Man (GM): He holds out his fists and powers up... and then morphs into, seemingly, Aribar. No... a younger Aribar.
Garrick: "Fair enou--whoa."
Digifanatic: .oO(Oh boy.)
Alexia: "...And I get first crack at setting it on fire."
Doopliss: "I have heard of an ancient and powerful mystic king, who was obviously based on Aribar's bloodline. At first, I could only imitate such greatness... but now..."
Dragoshi: "...You can become it?"
Garrick: *frowns and gently raises a hand to his ear, trying to get a scan on his power at the moment..*
Metal Man (GM): He morphs into a stronger, two-armed Aribar with a sword in one arm and a magical staff in another, a massive crown, and longer hair... and evil looking eyes... pointy teeth... and 2 feet taller...
Doopliss: "I now have all the power of this... 'King Erwin'... along with all the other powers I ever had!"
Alexia: "Shut up and let's bust some skulls."
Metal Man (GM): Move necklaces reassemble themselves from dust and form around him. He glows with several auras at once and faces the Questers, spinning the staff as you are now apparently floating atop a massive version of the SSB:M 'Battlefield' Arena.
Dragoshi: "..." *Just waits for Doopliss to shut the hell up and start the fight...*
Darkdata: "Just. Lovely."
Doopliss: "It is time I took over this world... The Void clearly wishes to destroy what is truly mine!"
Dragoshi: "And you really aren't helping worth a damn."
Kline: .oO(...finally, home court.)
Metal Man (GM): BATTLE.
Giga Doopliss: "I'm going to make you feel sorry you left your headquarters in the first place." *He tilts his staff at the Questers, a huge thunderstorm being summoned by it.* "Forget Terrorbolt... try MORTALBOLT!!!"
Metal Man (GM): He fires a massive collection of lightning bolts at everyone.
Garrick: *growls as he reaches behind him and into his jacket, drawing his weaponry... but as he pulls the M-150 free--then goes to dodge--*
Dragoshi: *And Dragoshi zooms out of the way of the lightning.*
Darkdata dodges as well.
Kline isn't killed by an instant attack! *phew.*
Alexia gets hit. Uh, ow?
Garrick: *growls as he leaps too slow and is fried by the lightning. He reaches to clear his sword from it's sheath... and finds nothing but a handle and a hilt... it was true. Magitek was gone. He sighs deeply before slipping into his jacket and pulling the Last Request free to double fist guns.*
Giga Doopliss: "And now... I shall show you my superiority to all which have come before me!" He swipes with his staff... but this mere swipe causes explosions throughout its circumference, as he aims at Digi.
Digifanatic: *Well hit.*
Metal Man (GM): *BLAMMO*
Giga Doopliss: "The sword... is mightier than the Quester! Tera Slash!"
Metal Man (GM): He leaps up and tries to smash his sword at Dragoshi.
Darkdata: "You did not just ruin that saying. <_<"
Dragoshi: "...Why do people mangle say-Gah!" *Slashed by that.*
Metal Man (GM): *CRASH* It deals mondo damage, and slows down Doopliss too. He has the strength of titans at the moment.
Garrick: *lets his eyes go wide in shock.* "My god..."
Giga Doopliss: "You cannot laugh away my power THIS time, Dragoshi!"
Metal Man (GM): He's hastily pulling the sword out of the ground now...
Dragoshi: "...The only reason I did such a thing is that I snapped under agitation, dammit." *Dragoshi readies his scythe, and... checks his surroundings.*
Metal Man (GM): Well, Doopliss is plumb right next to everyone. To the left and right are platforms. Above everyone is a higher platform. The necklaces are on Doopliss' neck and around his wrists.
Kline: .oO(...he's got the necklaces?!?!?)
Metal Man (GM): He has a barrier.
Dragoshi: *And, Dragoshi, not even amused by this stupid bedsheet, attempts to rake Doop Scoop with the scythe. Twice.*
Metal Man (GM): Dragoshi hits his field. Twice. Indeed.
Dragoshi: *Anyway, Dragoshi switches out for his machinegun, and Tidal Blasts 'im.*
Metal Man (GM): Hit, hit, hit.
Dragoshi: "..." *And, Dragoshi fires a Tidal Blast Barrage at 'im now!*
Metal Man (GM): All hit. He pulls out the sword, and chuckles.
Kline doesn't trust this...
Giga Doopliss: "Your puny attacks can't kill me, Slick! I've got the ultimate power!"
Dragoshi: "Which you don't deserve."
Garrick: "Somebody scan him already!"
Dragoshi: "It'll prolly' fail."
Metal Man (GM): It fails to bring up anything... for it does not see him.
Dragoshi: "...See? See? ...Though this could also bring a lot of things up. ...Like if Doopliss is even real or not for example."
Kline: "...that might be it."
Kline just chooses to believe that Doopliss doesn't exist.
Digifanatic: "I bet it's ethereal right now."
Giga Doopliss: "Ha ha ha ha! You really believe I am fake? Go ahead... slick."
Dragoshi: *Is prolly' wrong.*
Garrick: "STOP CALLING PEOPLE SLICK!!"
Dragoshi: "...Hey. I said it was merely a possibility."
Giga Doopliss: "Never, Slick."
Darkdata: "By saying slick again you agree that you are a bleached sheet."
Kline is trying anyway. No Void thing exists.
Garrick: *growls as he gets no solid information from the scan, running to the right and yelling as he fires round after round of shots from both his guns. A trio of shots from each of his guns followed by a nasty Armor Piercing Round from the Last Request.* "C'mon, magitek or no, this has got to do something..."
Metal Man (GM): He holds out his staff. A series of plinking noises follow. Only the last one hits.
Giga Doopliss: "Your attacks are useless against me; I have the powers which Master Hand made to defeat The Void, and he... he is vastly more powerful than you!"
Digifanatic: .oO(Oh, really, now?)
Garrick: *skids to a halt, his scowl deepening...* "There's no way I can hit him..."
Darkdata: "Hmm. This may be a long shot. However I might as well try." *Call Clearsong - Ho-oh.* o/'Ho-Oh we need your power great / to defeat this evil fate / Ho-oh I call to you to help us protect the world / Your legend is heard across the lands / you show trainers your rainbow light / Ho-oh help us in this fight / so we may stop this blight / Ho-oh I ask you to come!'\o
Garrick: "...you're calling a POKEMON?!?!"
Metal Man (GM): It echoes... no response. He laughs.
Digifanatic, after taking a couple of huge blows, realizes that he is some bad shape and can't afford to guard anyone this turn. He decides to go for some offensive power instead. It may be vain, but he goes for a round of point-blank Hyper Beam Matrix followed by a Fire Punch.
Giga Doopliss: "Yes! Bring an inferior bird... but no bird can do a bedsheet's job, Slick!"
Metal Man (GM): Hit, miss.
Darkdata: "Garrick, did your idea do any better? So your a bleached bedsheet."
Metal Man (GM): His sword was stuck in the ground when it did.
Darkdata: "I knew it.!"
Metal Man (GM): Hit.
Garrick: "Well, what am I supposed to do?! I'd chop him with a sword, but magitek is GONE!"
Giga Doopliss: "Disintegrated like all the rest." He laughs. "For it is fake, unlike me!"
Metal Man (GM): Horizontal movement was not prevented. He continues standing at the center of the massive Battlefield platform.
Garrick: .oO(Sword that's still with me, my ass...)
Metal Man (GM): He powers up, and indeed, he summons a familiar move... uh-oh. Roy's Double Edge Dance... at Garrick!
Garrick: *screams as he's suddenly up IN HIS FACE and sliced to bits.* "Damn you..." *grunts as he falls to a knee. He's hurt badly, but alive..." *
Metal Man (GM): He then attacks with... hm... just a normal fireball. Wait a minute... he's firing hundreds of Mario Fireballs at Digi!
Metal Man (GM): Digi leaps clear of all of them.
Kline: .oO(How did he get those old Move Necklaces?)
Dragoshi: "..." *Blink.*
Giga Doopliss: *He finishes it off by firing a hail of sharpened splinters at Dragoshi. "Wood Blast Tornado!"
Dragoshi: *Only two hit, though. :p*
Garrick: "...it's gotta be the necklaces... those are giving him all those moves..."
Kline: "It is. They are familiar to me now. Bowser used to have them. Made by Ludwig/Cookie Von Koopa."
Garrick: "We got to get them away from him..."
Kline: "We still need to get through that barrier though."
Dragoshi: "..." *Dragoshi readies the machinegun, aiming at Doopliss, as suddenly, five three-shot bursts of water prepare to strike at Doop Scoop, attempting to rip the barrier to shreds!*
Metal Man (GM): 4 hits. He reflects many of them away.
Giga Doopliss: "You're not alone in being able to dodge most attacks thrown at you anymore!"
Garrick: .oO(Gotta find a way to hit him...)
Giga Doopliss: "Believe I'm real now, Slick whose name confuses me?"
Kline: "Garrick, want to go up close?" (possible team attack)
Garrick: "You bet your ass I do... The Void's men are fake, I give you that; however with this power I can take him on myself, easily. You just need to be destroyed first... Shadow Queen died the last time we let heroes survive."
Kline: "Care to team up then?"
Kline goes to Garrick: he would hop on. Actual move to take place on his turn.
Darkdata: "I could join in on this team attack..."
Kline: "No. I can only carry one at a time... and it's not really a true 'team' thing."
Garrick: *would climb not astride Wolf like a horse, no... he'd be riding him like a skateboard...*
Kline: "Just me providing extra transportation."
Julian: *And so could Julian once he stops after flying out of a random portal straight at Doopliss! Flying Tackle(Axe Kick) from out of loving nowhere! What is this madness?*
Metal Man (GM): Miss!!!
Giga Doopliss: "Your powers are worthless against me, Slick."
Julian: *And Julian crashes and burns! What's up with that? Soon enough Julian picks himself up, rubbing his head.* "The fuck is goin' on NOW?"
Garrick: "Julian, do me a favor and just KILL HIM."
Giga Doopliss: "No one shall tell you. Mwa ha ha ha ha!!!" It looks like Aribar with a serious attitude issue.
Dragoshi: "Doopliss is being an annoyance. Though, if you want the less sucktastic explanation..."
Julian: *He checks if Doopliss still has a barrier.*
Dragoshi: "We found the Smash Emblem in the Brass Tower under a statue of Master Hand. When we uncovered said Emblem, Doopliss stole it, and bam. This happens. Yes, I know the explanation isn't that good, but this is rather annoying."
Julian: "...The fuck is a Smash Emblem?"
Kline: "Item that will save the planet."
Julian: "Whatever." *PUNCH TIME! DEUX.*
Metal Man (GM): Hit, miss.
Julian: *Fuck yeah, And now, MORE PUNCHES. Because what's the deal with that high defense?* *TWO CRITS.*
Metal Man (GM): Hit miss hit crit miss. Er two crits.
Julian: *Hey, what's this in my bag? Extra time? You shouldn't have! WEAPON TIME! Julian's got a...* *Beer Bottle! Smashy smashy!*
Digifanatic: *Smashy indeed.*
Garrick: "Alright... hit it, Wolf!"
Kline: "Got it!"
Kline charges towards Doopliss, Garrick on top. Upon getting close enough, he leaps up... Garrick would also leap up once Kline hits the peak. He then quickly attempts to get in a Rocket Tackle before Garrick performs his move on this pseudo team attack that hopefully won't count as one. He hits!
Garrick: *would leap clear of Kline easily as he reaches the apex of his jump, sending him high into the air over Doopliss. He growls as he comes speeding down his body rotating in mid air as he sends the back of his heel crashing into the top of the damn bedsheet's head.* "Two Man Team Attack! CRASHING HEEL TACKLE!"
Metal Man (GM): Kline crashes into him, while he ducks out of the way of Garrick. Kline's attack deals some damage; the other part of the attack misses. Doopliss is nearly at half health.
Garrick: *almost screams as he jumps clear.* "I'm useless in this..."
Darkdata: *Darkdata casts haste.* *Darkdata summons a mirror shield.*
Digifanatic goes back to a more standard approach, so to say: he tries to hit Doopliss from behind via Fire Lunge and smacks Doopliss once with that Golf Club of doom...
Metal Man (GM): Hit.
Digifanatic: *dang it.*
Metal Man (GM): And a miss on the second attack.
Digifanatic looks to see what will minimize movement problems... wait a second... he gives Doopliss an Icy Kick...
Metal Man (GM): Hit.
Digifanatic finishes off his turn by whipping straight back to the group and, oh yeah... guards Julian.
Metal Man (GM): He sees Digi guarding Julian and raises a hand.
Digifanatic: .oO(I've been long overdue for this. Or not.)
Giga Doopliss: "You do know, that you cannot protect Julian, do you not?"
Digifanatic: "Not until now."
Dragoshi: "Because you'll just be a smartass and work around the guarding?" *Eyeroll.*
Digifanatic: "I'd say."
Giga Doopliss: "Behold my new invention..." Digi glows... "Digifantic pinball! Wait, no. E Li Three made... byargh!" *Hurls Digi around like a pinball at Julian, then Dragoshi, then Garrick, then Julian again.
Dragoshi: *And of course it hits over his defense.*
Garrick: *is bashed.*
Julian: *Julian sidesteps the flying Digi pinball, watches as he flies around the room... and jumps over him a second time! What a maneuver!*
Metal Man (GM): Digi lands after all the bouncing.
Digifanatic: *Holding on by a bit...*
Giga Doopliss: "Now have some more of this!" It rains lightning again...
Julian: *Oh snap!*
Digifanatic: *He's dead!*
Garrick: *head... hit... keyboard...*
Digifanatic: *2/3 lives.* .oO(Note to self... I can't do that.)
Dragoshi: *First, and foremost, Dragoshi aims once again at Doop Scoop Supreme, and fires not one, not two, but three Indignation shots!*
Metal Man (GM): Miss hit hit miss.
Kline will go el-cheapo this time. Run to Doopliss, unleash Wolfkahouha hell, pray he somehow doesn't magically avoid it.
Julian: *Weapon Time! Julian's got a...* *Switchblade! Stabbin' time... OR IS IT?* *It's not! Oh no!*
Giga Doopliss: "You stab like a little girl!"
Dragoshi: "Not really. You just have the power of something that shouldn't be yours."
Kline: .oO(...Doopliss is annoying)
Julian: "What he said." *MORE WEAPONS.* *Lead Pipe! It's... Pipin' time! OR IS IT?* *It's not! Oh no!* *And Lastly... MORE WEAPONS.* *SLEEEEEEEEEEDGEHAMMER.*
Digifanatic: *Holy schnizzap.*
Julian: *Here goes nothing! C'mon...* *Aw man :(*
Giga Doopliss: "With the power of the Smash Emblem, I can deflect your pathetic attacks much easier!" He spins his sword. "This is what Tordek wished to be, but failed!"
Garrick: *pants... in a great deal of pain, but living still... he grits his teeth as he slides the Last Request away and clears the distance toward Doopliss in two large steps... and tries to get through the shield with a nasty Heel Drop!*
Giga Doopliss: "An old warrior from Aribar's homeworld. My equivalent, for his world... well, if you ignore Orange man."
Garrick: *takes a deep breath... he knows this won't work, but it's a long shot... he reaches into his shirt and pulls out that medallion free, the glittering brass V shinning in the low light.* "...this HAS to do something or I'm screwed... c'mon... do something!"
Metal Man (GM): The power of The Void goes to corrupt Garrick... ...but the Smash Emblem blocks its might.
Giga Doopliss: "You want to become The Void's next lackey or somethin'?"
Garrick: "I want to defeat you!"
Giga Doopliss: "For you, there is no victory, Slick."
Garrick: "I refuse to believe that! This thing was given to me for a reason... I don't know what, but it's the only thing I have left!"
Metal Man (GM): Indeed... he stands in the middle of the Battlefield platform.
Giga Doopliss: "Why don't you try hitting me with it, then? Heh heh heh heh."
Garrick: "...why don't I?"
Kline: .oO(...I can't advise this time.)
Garrick: *yanks the leather strap from around his neck with one sharp tug, wrapping it around his fist with the V securely on his knuckles. He kicks forward, running much too slow as he clears the distance to Doopliss and swings his fist forward in a mighty Haymaker.*
Julian: "Wait, that's a Void thing? I wouldn't do-you ain't listenin'."
Metal Man (GM): Hit.
Giga Doopliss: "Well, at least you aren't a complete failure. Although if it weren't for my force field, you might have imprinted that thing on my forehead."
Dragoshi: "..." .oO(Does he ever stop talking?)
Darkdata: "You are destroying that item after we have that Smash item, The Void has enough power without mind controlling you." <_<
Garrick: "SHUT UP! I'm tired of your FUCKING VOICE!" *he does it again! And AGAIN! And AGAIN!*
Darkdata: "Doopliss you are the sheet upon which the cat of victory uses for a litterbox. The waste of cats will show our smelly victory!"
Metal Man (GM): Miss... miss... hit.
Dragoshi: "... ...Darkdata."
Darkdata: ·oO(If that does not make him shut up, nothing will.)
Digifanatic: .oO(Now he's going Shakespeare on us.)
Giga Doopliss: "Nonsense. I crush you into a ball of mud and eat your soul!"
Dragoshi: "Never again."
Kline: "Actually, I appreciated the bard."
Garrick: *roars out loud before he brings one last slamming punch into his forehead.*
Digifanatic: "Yeah..." .oO(But THAT.)
Dragoshi: "...But that was freaking HORRIBLE, Kline."
Metal Man (GM): Miss.
Darkdata: "With what, your sheets of nothingness are dim in our bright light of heroics."
Garrick: *snarls as he leaps back, staring at the damned pendant.* "Useless piece of junk..."
Darkdata: "Hmm." *Mirror Clearsong.*
Metal Man (GM): Nope.
Darkdata: "Well so much for that idea."
Digifanatic can only do so much with this turn... Revive, and a little Elemental Will tries turning Fire Punch into Earth Punch for experimentation purposes.
Metal Man (GM): CRITZ. Giga Doopliss looks about, and also at the damage the Questers dealt... but he only powers up.
Darkdata: "Hmm, I think I was channeling something that sounds like a waffle for a second there."
Giga Doopliss: "You think you have me on the ropes! Nonsense!"
Metal Man (GM): He fires the cloud of Mario Fireballs at Darkdata.
Metal Man (GM): He then leaps up and tries to hit Julian with a Tera Slash.
Darkdata: "Do the Mario, do do do."
Metal Man (GM): *CRASHHHH* He spends the rest of his turn pulling the sword out... his defense is lowered.
Dragoshi: "...Vengeance is so damn sweet." *First, Dragoshi...* *Let's try that again without the idiotically bad fumble...* *A pair of throwing scythes fly at Doopliss!*
Metal Man (GM): Hit, hit.
Dragoshi: *And, then Dragoshi fires an Ice Tornado Shot at 'im!*
Metal Man (GM): He yanks the sword free, and is once again nigh-unhittable.
Kline goes to... start off with a headbutt attack! Then turns around and tries again! *CRIT* Then goes to bite the sucker. Then tries again. Then goes once more under haste. *BITE.*
Metal Man (GM): Hit.
Kline: *HOLDING ON with teeth,.*
Metal Man (GM): Kline holds onto Doopliss' force field. No effect.
Julian: *Aaaaaaaaaand PUNCHAPUNCHAPUNCHAPUNCHAPUNCHAPUNCHA.*
Metal Man (GM): Miss miss miss miss miss hit.
Kline doesn't hold... blech.
Metal Man (GM): Hit.
Garrick: *basically goes foot and gun pommel crazy on this fool. He smacks him with the pomel of the M-150, spinning into a Roundhouse before hitting him with the pommel once more and then bringing his heel crashing down on his head.* *...at least I hit once..*
Darkdata: *Recasts haste.* *Goes for mirror clearsong again.* *Then goes for a illusion clearsong to make a clone of a Quester appear as a distraction.*
Metal Man (GM): A mirror and an illusion appear; Doopliss, however, retains his concentration for now. Somehow, the spell cloned Aribar...
Digifanatic continues fiddling around with elements and interesting attack combinations. This time around, it's an Icy Kick followed by a round of Celestial Fury... that first shot of CF is glowing maroon and red instead of maroon and white (Fire Elemental Will)! Second is normal. He finishes off with a Running Charge, once again showing his wide range of elemental talent.
Metal Man (GM): Making it more distracting, though.
Digifanatic: *crap.* *out of luck.*
Metal Man (GM): Miss. Hit miss.
Julian: *Here Comes The Pain.*
Metal Man (GM): The field is weakening. However, Giga Doopliss goes for some last-ditch pain.
Clone Aribar: "Sorry I am late guys."
Metal Man (GM): He hurls tons of lightning again.
Clone Aribar: "You know how it is."
Kline dies from this.
Dragoshi: *He evades.*
Kline: *BOOM Boom boom boom boom...*
Digifanatic: *ONE POINT OFF...*
Darkdata: .oO(What would Ari say *bzzt.*)
Garrick: *grunts... and falls over... down for the count.*
Clone Aribar: "Urm, why is there a guy who looks like me?"
Dragoshi: "...Blame Doopliss."
Clone Aribar: "Oh, the little bedsheet that likes to mimic people? How did he get so tough?"
Metal Man (GM): He finishes off by powering up and attacking Julian with another Tera slash!
Dragoshi: "Stole something that wasn't his. Also, man when did your attitude change?" ?_?
Metal Man (GM): *CRASH* *Doopliss defense down.*
Dragoshi: *And, Dragoshi gets to rain more vengeance down upon Doop Scoop. Yayz. How? Lessee..* *A TARANTULA! Which assaults Doop Scoop like a peanut.*
Julian: *Julian flies backwards in slow motion, yelling out in pain! KO!!*
Clone Aribar: "Oh, I splashed and somehow ended up with this personalty as an effect. Who knew?"
Dragoshi: "Huh. Interesting."
Clone Aribar: "Hey Doopliss, remember me?"
Metal Man (GM): Hit.
Giga Doopliss: "Yes... insignificant speck, your identity has helped me become all-powerful!"
Dragoshi: *And, once again playing with the fire known as 'luck', Dragoshi...* *Gaw dammit. And, one more time...*
Clone Aribar: "I am working on a spell to undo it right now. I am not so insignificant." *Makes random casting motions.*
Dragoshi: *And, he flings an amethyst shard at Doopliss!*
Julian: *WHAT A CRIT.*
Kline is currently fighting the Name Rater in the afterlife. Please leave a message at the end of turn.
Julian: *Julian groans, rolls over onto his stomach, and boosts himself up, wiping the blood from the corner of his mouth as he gets back into his stance! Round 2, Fight! Eventually!*
Garrick: *groans as he feels life flood into him once more. He slowly stands up before slamming a fresh clip into his pistol and readying himself.*
Darkdata: *Creates a mirror to maintain the illusion.* *Cough.* *Creates a mirror to maintain the illusion.*
Metal Man (GM): It continues.
Darkdata: *And I will add another illusion to the mess.*
Metal Man (GM): Another Dragoshi appears.
Clone Dragoshi: "Darkdata..."
Clone Aribar: *Still making ransom casting motions.*
Digifanatic just tries to come up with ways to keep his offense going in this one: Running Charge to move, Golf Club, Aerial Strike, clipping Doop's head as Digi surges forward, and ends the turn with Fire Lunge.
Metal Man (GM): Hit. Miss. Miss. Hit.
Giga Doopliss: "Gah... you're too strong!"
Clone Dragoshi: "I wonder if there is such a thing as Doopliss pudding, Maybe strain it though his sheet."
Metal Man (GM): The barrier and the battlefield vanish. Everyone revives, as Doopliss falls back, dropping his sword and staff in the process.
Clone Aribar: "ssilpood si diputs. ssilpood si diputs."
Kline is around... huh?
Dragoshi: *RUNS over to Doopliss and tries to grab 'im!*
Julian: *And... We win? Awesome.*
Metal Man (GM): He falls back, turning back to normal...
Clone Aribar: "Hey I did it!"
Julian: *Julian'll be taking the sword and the staff... and that Emblem if it shows up.*
Metal Man (GM): He touches Dragoshi and lights him on fire at the touch.
Kline quickly hopes to get the Smash Emblem... wait a second. Dragoshi already jumped ahead? Oh well.
Metal Man (GM): He stands up again, fire burning in his eyes.
Dragoshi: *And he's on fire. Ow.* *Hops back and brushes the flames off.*
Doopliss: "You cannot stop me as long as I have the will to fight... and I shall never give up!"
Clone Dragoshi: "Good thing it was just the illusion." *With non-harmful tidal blasts.* "...JUST GO AWAY, ALREADY!."
Garrick: *pants heavily as he watches Julian take all the items in one fell swoop. His gaze turns back to Doopliss, his fist clenching hard...*
Clone Dragoshi: "I would hate for it to be me."
Kline attempts to grab Doop Scoop then... fire shouldn't affect Kline as much.
Dragoshi: "I tire of your god damn persistence you stupid excuse for a Halloween costume!"
Metal Man (GM): He powers up and lights Kline on fire as well.
Kline somehow feels the burn... this is powerful fire!
Metal Man (GM): It burns him enough to remove the curse of his name...
Kline starts rolling.
Wolfman eventually feels... huh?
Clone Aribar: "Hmm, I will have to make something to fix that."
Wolfman: "...alright, that's ONE good thing you've done Doopliss."
Julian: *Julian, having put 2 + 2 together to make 4, decides NOT to attack Doopliss. Yet.* "I wonder why you keep tryin', you NEVER succeed, and you never GONNA succeed."
Garrick: "He's stubborn... like all of us."
Wolfman: "Now, hand over the Smash Emblem."
Dragoshi: *Nods in agreement.*
Metal Man (GM): Nameless fury appears in his eyes as he speaks in an angry voice.
Garrick: *walks forward, watching his eyes...*
Digifanatic: *stays quiet for now.*
Doopliss: "Because... Mustache killed the 'Queen', you guys killed everyone else, and I must ensure that The Shadow Queen is revived!"
Julian: "Who the hell is the Shadow Queen?"
Clone Dragoshi: "A queen's shadow?"
Metal Man (GM): He surveys the situation... and then gets an idea.
Garrick: "I could care less, right now..."
Dragoshi: "Or some sort of ancient evil."
Clone Dragoshi: "I agree clone Dragoshi."
Darkdata: .oO(I wonder)
Doopliss: "Hmph. If you want your emblem so much... then you shall have to make your choice... what do you want more..." He opens two portals, one in front of him, and one in front of the emblem. "Me or the Emblem?"
Darkdata: *Call item clearsong.* *The Smash Emblem.*
Julian: "The Emblem. We can deal wit' yo' punk ass later."
Wolfman: "...the emblem."
Dragoshi: *Prepares to be wary...*
Digifanatic: "I was just gonna say..."
Clone Dragoshi: "Emblem".
Garrick: *stands there, silent.*
Clone Aribar: "Emblem."
Doopliss: "I'm afraid you won't be seeing me any time soon, slick... your whole world's going to blow up! Without me... it is hopeless! Heh heh heh."
Digifanatic: "Yeah, it's pretty much unanimous."
Metal Man (GM): He sulks and leaps into the portal, leaving behind the emblem.
Dragoshi: *Takes that.*
Julian: "So we got what we was lookin' for?"
Dragoshi: *'Cause, hey, he can be the canary as-is, seeing as he's low on health anyway, and he's still on his first life. >_>*
Darkdata: "Can someone do me a favor and slam my mirror so the clones will poof?"
Clone Dragoshi: "Yes, that fake me is really bothersome."
Metal Man (GM): The clones... will not go away! Mwa ha ha ha. Anyway... Mission Complete. +1 Smash Emblem.
Julian: *Absentmindedly smashes the mirror with a backhand.* "So let's get outta here." * Calls in a warp home, still holding on to Doopliss' sword and staff.*
Metal Man (GM): The warp home appears.
Wolfman turns to... wait: where was that pokemon trainer?
Darkdata: *Julian takes minor reflective damage.*
Garrick: *glances to that sword Julian is holding, rolling his eyes before stepping through the warp home...*
Digifanatic: *More than enough to get him to... level 93.* *Furthers his gap on Aetos for 3rd! :D*
Metal Man (GM): The pokemon trainer is still upstairs. Probably still standing there, unaware of the massive battle the Questers just had.
Darkdata: *Level 74 wo woo.*
Dragoshi: *Enters the warp home...*
Digifanatic: *warp, dude.*
Darkdata: *Warpy Warpy.*
Wolfman: "...if you are still there, I hope you don't mind what we're doing. We have to save the world." *tells mysterious one.* *WARP.*
Metal Man (GM): Back at the R&R Couch, a bit later...
Wolfman is waking up from a slightly peaceful rest. "...for a reploid, I sure do sleep more than most of the humans and dragons here. I'll contemplate that later."
Wolfman currently wanders around HQ.
Darkdata: "Maybe your batteries need to be fixed." *Smirk.*
Wolfman runs into Darkdata. "...I don't run on batteries... exactly."
Dragoshi: "Ehh... I just have a harder time sleeping than most normal people. Oh, and some abnormal ones, but that's not the point. ...I think." >_>;;
Darkdata: "Good luck with the match today Wolf. Don't let the hand do a job on you. I think you can win."
Wolfman: "...right. Today is the day. And thank you. However... this isn't about winning."
Digifanatic: *walks in.* "Match?" *I believe Digi is unaware of Wolf's interest.*
Wolfman: "I wanted this match for many reasons."
Digifanatic: *If he is aware, scratch the above line.*
Wolfman: "For one, Master Hand hasn't fought in awhile. For another, I want some idea of what to expect from our future missions. And Master Hand is about as difficult as they come."
Darkdata: "Ah, yes, Digi, Wolf is fighting the Master Hand."
Digifanatic: "Oh, dang!" *above not in distress but in interest.* "My old fighting partner... Kinda."
Wolfman: "I just hope whoever manning the Stadium Box knows that it's in Smash Mode for me, not HP."
Digifanatic: "Well, good luck, Wolf."
Wolfman: "Otherwise, this will be over quickly."
Digifanatic: "Wonder if this will be as dramatic as the first time I faced him... then again, I was outnumbered 2-to-1. so... And yes, I remember Sky was my partner for a short while in that."
Wolfman: "...I believe it is time for me to get going. Feel free to grab front row seats: they are reserved for you."
Digifanatic: .oO(Usually I take the box, but that works.)
Wolfman starts heading to the Arena.
Darkdata pulls out popcorn from nowhere and heads to the statium to watch. Arena.*
Digifanatic: .oO(If only Scott was here... we'd have fun with the sound system.) *follows Darkdata.*
Metal Man (GM): Wolfman heads out to the arena. Indeed. Master Hand is waiting.
Master Hand: "I am ready... but are you?"
Metal Man (GM): The large stands glimmer a bit, as if cleaned up... ...by a giant dust rag.
Wolfman: "...probably not, but then again, that is the point. Questers have to be ready for anything."
Master Hand: "I thought we should have a full audience, so Metal Man did actually advertise for this."
Wolfman looks to the audience.
Metal Man (GM): Some doors open, and an entire crowd walks in and fills about 3/4 of the stands. Metal Man coughs a bit from inside the commentary box.
Wolfman turns back to Master Hand. "If nothing else, I thank you for that. At least this place is being used again properly."
Metal Man: "And today we have the first official match in... years? Ah well. Wolfman vs. Master Hand. Will Wolfman win? Will Master Hand defeat him? I don't know, but some people have actually decided to bet on this match!"
Dragoshi: "...Betting? wow."
Metal Man (GM): The crowd cheers and the stage is open; Wolfman can leap aboard... and yes... people can bet. Odds are 50-50. For both.
Wolfman gets into his fighting stance.
Darkdata: "GO WOLF, Crack some fingers!"
Metal Man (GM): The stage raises up. It's ol' Final Destination. Wolf's on Player 1's edge. Master Hand hovers a bit to the side.
Dragoshi: "Well, this should be quite the interesting fight."
Digifanatic: "This is cool."
Metal Man: "The combatants are ready. And now... for the show to begin..."
Digifanatic: "It's too bad these don't happen more often."
Metal Man (GM): 3. 2. 1.
Darkdata eats some popcorn.
Metal Man (GM): GO!
Metal Man: "And Master Hand gets the initiative. And..."
Metal Man (GM): Wolf sees Master Hand fly up and over him, and immediately try to drill into him from above!
Wolfman sees that MH goes first... unusual, but perhaps he has learned... uh oh!
Wolfman attempts to roll to the side... but fails already!
Metal Man: "And Wolfman is seriously drilled by Master Hand! Ouch!"
Metal Man (GM): Wolf is thrown to the left. Master Hand returns to his old spot.
Wolfman is already in trouble... but he's not going to give up that easily! He rushes to MH, jumps up, and performs two swipes in midair!
Metal Man: "It's now Wolfman's turn... he's quite a distance away, and Master Hand seems ready to give out another pummeling... but then Master Hand is hit twice!"
Metal Man: "Master Hand's about to attack again... but what does he do?"
Wolfman tries to anticipate what is being done... good grief, harder to do than he realized.
Metal Man (GM): Master Hand begins walking on his two tip fingers and tries to kick Wolfman!
Wolfman attempts to jump over... bad move.
Metal Man (GM): *Smack.* Wolfman is thrown! Master Hand returns to his space again.
Wolfman: .oO(...I can't use most of my moves in this fight. Wolfkahouha wouldn't be good for the business either. Have to fight smart.)
Metal Man: "So far, the Master Hand's been hitting on all cylinders, leaving Wolfman to have to think up a plan!"
Wolfman moves, and jumps up! He then fires a round of buster shots from his forehead, self knocking him backwards in the process!
Metal Man (GM): Hit, hit.
Wolfman lands again... he gets ready for defense! Come on, old Melee skills... help me out! *Bonus defense.*
Metal Man: "Wolfman hits the giant glove with two more shots and gets ready..."
Metal Man (GM): Master Hand does a new move: He floats up, and repeatedly tries to fist-slam Wolfman!
Garrick: *walks calmly into the stadium arena, watching in the Questers' personal booth.* "...so that's Master Hand, huh? I've never seen him before..."
Digifanatic: "Hey Garrick. This is still the first round. You didn't miss much."
Metal Man: "Master Hand's doing the smashing today, but he misses Wolfman a couple times before he's able to get on his mark!"
Wolfman somehow avoids the first three hits by sidestepping, but gets slammed by the other two.
Garrick: "What's Wolf think he's doing, fighting him?"
Metal Man (GM): The attacks move Wolfman up and down, but he lands right where he was before.
Garrick: "Isn't Master Hand supposed to be... extremely tough?"
Darkdata: "No idea, I have a thousand coins riding on Wolf though. Popcorn?" *Holds it over for Garrick.*
Dragoshi: "Ehh... I'm just watching. Though, yea. I've heard he's rather strong."
Wolfman: "Alright, time to improvise."
Wolfman can't really "grab" Master Hand... but Biting should certainly be an option. Time to jump up and get two bites in!
Garrick: "Hmm... I wouldn't mind trying to take him on myself... but mainly I wanna ask about that Smash Emblem."
Wolfman would move over and put up another defensive attempt.
Dragoshi: "Same. On both counts, I mean."
Metal Man: "Two bites from Wolfman continue harming Master Hand!"
Garrick: "You'd have a better chance than most of us, Drag... I don't think I'm going to fight him. I'm way outta sorts the way I'm fighting now... and I hate to change my style again."
Metal Man (GM): Master Hand walks at Wolfman again, trying to punt him.
Dragoshi: "...Change your style?" ?_?
Wolfman needs a stronger Melee Bubble Shield.
Metal Man: "Master Hand walks at Wolfman yet again... does he prove that one should not bite the hand which feeds you?"
Metal Man (GM): Definitely going to need to jump. Wolf is flying off the stage.
Wolfman performs a midair jump for distance!
Wolfman might not have to use Rocket Tackle for recovery... let's see.
Metal Man (GM): Wolfman lands on the edge. One more hit could send him to his doom.
Garrick: "Ever since I joined the Questers, I've had to change my style constantly because I keep losing my weapons. I had a hand buster, but that got trashed a long time ago and Oak turned it into the Speed Claw, which I put on the line to get Link's Pegasus Boots. I lost barely, and I had to make the M-150. Then that got trashed and I went to hands and feet until I found replacement parts."
Digifanatic: "Eh, I've done that a time or two."
Wolfman has no clue if he's doing enough damage... and dexing in these battles isn't allowed. Gah.
Digifanatic: "Replaced attacks, just got rid of others and whatnot."
Garrick: "Then there was the sword and shield, then I got a hold of Metal's axe and used that for a while before I made the Burning Chill... and I used that and the M-150 for until recently, when Magitek disappeared... so, now I'm back to being a straight gunner."
Garrick: "Until this damn sword from the Void or something shows up... which I doubt it will, and if it does, it'll turn me evil... ...or I'm guessing it will."
Wolfman runs to MH again... He then chooses to attack Master Hand with his forehead buster after jumping... aggressively.
Metal Man (GM): Wolfman hasn't done much damage; MH seems in good condition.
Digifanatic: "But yeah, for me, when it comes to stuff I used when I returned here, I think Fire Punch and my golf club are the only things I've kept since then..."
Metal Man (GM): CRIT hit.
Digifanatic: "Maybe Digital Barrier but I don't use that very often. Everything else I've replaced for other things or acquired when I sealed Mewthree."
Wolfman lands again. However, he was a little rash that time. One life will soon be gone most likely.
Metal Man: "Wolfman delivers a beating to The Hand, who seems ready to attack again..."
Digifanatic: "Fortunately, my elemental talents have made up for some of those losses..."
Metal Man (GM): Master Hand walks at Wolfman again--it must be some sort of attempt to throw him off the stage!
Wolfman can't dodge that.
Metal Man (GM): *Blam.*
Wolfman can maybe get it for distance with Rocket Tackle.
Metal Man (GM): Not gonna make it if Wolf doesn't speed up... triple...
Digifanatic: .oO(Nothing more fun than dishing ice when they expect fire and all that.)
Metal Man (GM): A critical lands Wolf right on the stage, as the crowd cheers wildly.
Digifanatic: *quickly focuses back on the match.* "OH YES!" *whistles.*
Dragoshi: *Slowly claps as he sees Wolf do that.*
Wolfman goes for a different approach this time. While the hand is merely floating, it should be possible to LAND on him. And jumping to that height is possible.
Garrick: "...he can jump good for a wolf... Mechanical wolf or not."
Metal Man (GM): Wolf's too far away still to land on him, unless he jumps more this turn.
Digifanatic: "Well, as Questers, we can pull off some great rabbits from our hats."
Garrick: "Yep, usually.."
Wolfman will go for a midair jump and try to land on him. Provided that is successful, he goes for a Claw Swing with the front left claw... hoping to stick his hand on him to hold on!
Garrick: "Killing gods and demons and all that.."
Metal Man (GM): Wolf's holding on to Master Hand all right... but how will it bode?
Metal Man: "Wolfman tries some unorthodox moves--he grabs Master Hand as good as he can!"
Wolfman then uses his RIGHT claw for the same thing!
Garrick: "Uh oh... that might not be the smartest thing.."
Wolfman will go for the last of his attacks regardless: a headbutt from his position! Hopefully, the knockback will send MH to teh ground!
Metal Man (GM): Hit. However... Wolf cannot knockback Master Hand. He floats still. Master Hand turns around some, and then begins shooting lasers out his fingertips... ones which curve to threaten Wolfman!
Wolfman can't get his claws out in time it looks like...
Metal Man (GM): Two lasers hit Wolf... knocking him off.
Wolfman jumps fast... hopefully. He isn't fast enough!
Metal Man (GM): *POOM!*
Metal Man: "Wolfman loses a life to the Hand, who floats back as always..."
Metal Man (GM): Wolfman revives on his turn, since Master Hand can't do anything but attack... so he appears on a revival platform.
Digifanatic: *to the others.* "Man, if I knew Wolf was going to use multiple lives, I may have been more willing to put some dough on him."
Wolfman at least learned to be careful with the grabbing.
Wolfman will advance again and perform a normal forehead buster shot via jumping again.
Dragoshi: "Ehhh... Good thing I didn't bet. 'Cause this could go either way." >_>;;
Digifanatic: "Ohhhh MY!" .oO(I doubt it...)
Metal Man (GM): Hit, hit.
Metal Man: "Wolfman shoots the hand twice..."
Metal Man (GM): Master Hand walks at Wolfman yet again, intent on smacking him to the side.
Wolfman gets smacked.
Metal Man (GM): Wolf is knocked to the left.
Wolfman attempts to go aggressive again... he runs, leaps towards MH, and goes Berserker Barrage on him! Defense loss be darned!
Metal Man (GM): MH is torn up by that... ...but still floating.
Metal Man: "A bout of incredible luck sends Wolfman ripping many pieces off the Master Hand... but he seems unphased!"
Metal Man (GM): Master Hand floats up, and once again blankets the arena with fist smacks!.. ouch, a crit!
Wolfman went half defense this time: all hit.
Metal Man: "Master Hand gets payback... very painful, flattening payback..."
Metal Man (GM): This attack doesn't knock Wolf around, who is now just a bit flatter than before.
Wolfman: "...you're lucky I'm honorable enough not to use Wolfkahouha here Master Hand."
Metal Man (GM): He remains silent... must be thinking.
Wolfman will go with the running and the jumping and the swinging of the claws and whatnot.
Metal Man (GM): Hit, hit.
Metal Man (GM): He keeps on doing his evil Handwalking attack... by now it's gotten seriously annoying. *CRIT* Wolf's sent flying.
Wolfman attempts to midair jump to see if that is enough.
Metal Man (GM): Need a triple jump, but Wolf will make it.
Wolfman rocket tackles then.
Metal Man (GM): Wolf lands a distance to the side.
Wolfman: .oO(...what to do...) .oO(...need to stay honorable...)
Wolfman will jump up and do more biting then. Can't swing all the time.
Metal Man (GM): Hit, hit.
Wolfman ATTEMPTS for better defense. Come on already!
Metal Man (GM): Master Hand finger-walks at Wolfman yet again... it must be some form of intimidation.
Wolfman is not intimidated... just hit.
Metal Man (GM): *SMACK*.. and Wolf will need a really good jump to get back now!
Wolfman starts off with midair!
Wolfman tries rocket tackle!
Metal Man (GM): Dud mid-air... but Wolf lands on the edge.
Wolfman pulls himself up... or something.
Metal Man (GM): Wolf does so.
Metal Man: "Wolfman's out... but not done for! He returns for more fighting action... when will Master Hand change tactics?"
Wolfman: .oO(At least I am trying different ideas... what's a new one to go for, though? Hmm... he's a hand. I wonder what's inside...?)
Dragoshi: "Next Tuesday?"
Wolfman has enough time to go to MH... he then attempts to jump inside the "opening" of the gloved hand...
Metal Man (GM): No; it's pure white there... however he's open to attack, so attack away. (There's no way inside, heh...)
Wolfman will jump and aggressively berserker barrage again!
Metal Man (GM): The crowd boos as Wolf only hits once. Master Hand sees Wolf's weak attack, and flies off the stage.
Wolfman: .oO(finally, something new... wait a second)
Metal Man (GM): He then comes at Wolfman from the background! Ahhhhh!!!! *SMACK*.. Wolfman, however, is not knocked to his doom by this.
Wolfman gets hit... wha?
Metal Man (GM): The Hand rockets off the stage and then back onto it from the side, spinning, trying to hit Wolfman mid-air for a flashy KO.
Wolfman somehow avoids it!
Metal Man (GM): He misses. The Crowd boos Master Hand. Wolfman lands.
Metal Man: "It appears both sides are making inaccurate moves now. Master Hand's change in strategy cost him this time!"
Wolfman: "...this is a rough crowd, don't you think?"
Master Hand: "They have high expectations... it's been several years."
Wolfman: "Then I hope you don't mind if I try something new here."
Dragoshi: *Isn't booing. Just watching.* "...Meh."
Darkdata: "Go Wolf, Go!"
Wolfman rushes to MH, jumps, and starts off... well, okay, claw swings to stick aren't new. But it is a setup.
Wolfman is going for the PALM though.
Metal Man (GM): Hit, hit. Wolf grabs on.
Wolfman will now prove Julian wrong by using his hind legs to attack, along with his head! Full Body Contact Attack! (headbutt first)
Metal Man (GM): Hit. Hit. The crowd cheers as Master Hand gets repeatedly hit.
Digifanatic: "Bring him down, Wolf!"
Wolfman is on the palm though.
Metal Man (GM): Master Hand goes to turn his hand into a fist, with Wolfman inside it...
Wolfman better disengage!
Metal Man (GM): Wolf leaps out... but now he's coming at Wolf from above! The move doesn't seemingly try to knock Wolf off the stage...
Metal Man: "Master Hand looks like he wants to knock Wolfman around a bit before he takes him out... could that be a fatal mistake?"
Wolfman is positioned very close to Master Hand at least... so midair jumping on him is easy. Therefore... more aggressive barrages on the Knuckles!
Metal Man (GM): Hit hit hit hit hit.
Wolfman will get DISTANCE this time, to see if that works. Defense is mostly pointless.
Metal Man: "Master Hand's taken some serious damage now... will he knock out Wolfman this turn?"
Metal Man (GM): Master Hand continues fist-attacking Wolfman.
Wolfman: *OW OW OW OW OW.*
Metal Man (GM): Yet this attack ensures Wolfman is simply smashed more and more... no knockout!
Metal Man: "And Master Hand is more interested in harming Wolfman than destroying him!"
Wolfman: .oO(...and why was I not destroyed?)
Wolfman will have to run and attack now... he gets close enough, and unleashes another forehead buster attempt.
Metal Man (GM): Hit, hit. Master Hand flies off to the side and makes a gun pose, and fires three fast bullets at Wolfman! *BLAM BLAM BLAM*
Wolfman took took much damage... however. *POOM*
Metal Man: "And Master Hand defeats another of Wolfman's lives using his famous gun attack!"
Metal Man (GM): Wolf revives after flying off like a rocket.
Wolfman will have to be extra careful. He uses his round to run up and perform two claw swipes in the air normally.
Metal Man (GM): Master Hand flies off to the side and attacks with two quick smacks!
Wolfman should have defended instead!
Metal Man (GM): No knockback yet, though; merely knocked around.
Metal Man: "Master Hand shows off his ability to not use a move, and then suddenly attack... making him an unpredictable and dangerous foe!"
Wolfman will go for the Palm Dance again! First, jump and two claw smashes to stick...
Metal Man (GM): Indeed. Stick, and damage.
Wolfman then goes for headbutt and hind leg kick!
Metal Man (GM): Hit, hit. Master Hand attacks with his finger lasers...
Wolfman better dodge... pray time.
Metal Man (GM): Two hits... Weak Knockback, though, so... Wolf's about a mid-air jump off the stage.
Wolfman will midair jump back. He will go to MH's reach... and do more forehead buster blasting.
Metal Man (GM): Hit, hit. Master Hand opens fire with his handgun attack!
Wolfman avoids the last one... but not the first two!
Metal Man (GM): Wolf leaps back... uses a triple... and makes his way all the way back.
Metal Man: "Wolfman leaps back after being hit by bullets!"
Wolfman is already at MH? Sheesh, rocket tackle is more powerful than expected. .oO(...but do Wolfkahouha him now? He's hittable... ...NO! Must be honorable... ...must win... ...)
Wolfman goes for aggressive berserker barrage, going from right of hand to left of hand after leaping.
Metal Man (GM): All but one hits. He looks heavily beaten up... but so is Wolf. This is gonna be a pretty even one!
Wolfman will have to chance it: he leaps BACK and swings two claws for stickiness on the palm!
Metal Man (GM): Hit, hit. He attempts to shake Wolfman off.
Wolfman attempts to hold on!
Metal Man (GM): Wolfman stays on... so instead he rides Master Hand around the entire arena. No damage.
Metal Man: "Wolfman is stuck on, leaving Master Hand unable to harm him!"
Dragoshi: "Well, that's something you don't see every day. A mechanical wolf riding on a giant hand. ...It's oddly amusing."
Digifanatic: "Ohhh yeah."
Metal Man (GM): Hit.
Wolfman then lands on the hand... he focuses as best as he can, and goes for a SMASH ATTACK with his claws for the hopeful win!
Digifanatic: "Down to the wire... down to the wire..."
Metal Man (GM): Hit. Master Hand begins spinning!
Wolfman tries to hold on again!
Metal Man (GM): Wolf falls off, but only after MH has attacked..
Metal Man: "Wolfman barely hangs on, evading a spinning drill-finger assault!"
Wolfman: .oO(well, I finally get this to work)
Wolfman jumps on top of him and does two claw swipes again... trying to damage, not stick. He then takes a gamble: aggressive berserker barrage once more!
Digifanatic: "I think..."
Metal Man (GM): All hit but the last one. But MH's still alive... barely. Yes. Barely. I can use that word now. He walks at Wolfman! Uh-oh! *Hit.* Wolf leaps a lot to get back to the stage...
Wolfman gets further in at least.
Metal Man (GM): MH is a ways away. Nearly dead... yet another attack could end it from his side.
Wolfman goes for the palm sticky move... he's not a good judge on how much punishment a hand can take!
Metal Man (GM): And Master Hand explodes!
Wolfman doesn't sink in... he sinks... through?
Metal Man (GM): The crowd applauds as Master Hand is fried, and Wolfman wins.
Dragoshi: *Claps. Not slowly, though.*
Darkdata: "Woo! Go Wolf!"
Metal Man: "It appears Master Hand's showboating earlier cost him the win! One more attack and it could have destroyed Wolfman..."
Wolfman howls for taunting as this match is OVAH!
Metal Man (GM): MATCH SET. Winner: Wolfman. Awards: No-Wolfakouha: +5000 coins. Lost in Space: +500 coins. Tactical Battler: +1000 coins. Repetitive Moves: -2000 coins. Match Win: +1000. To show how close it was: One more Master Hand attack would have probably clinched it. Also, that was 20 rounds long.
Wolfman hopes to run into Master Hand after he's de-exploded.
Metal Man (GM): Master Hand reappears, a bit chewed up, but normal.
Dragoshi: *Would prolly' walk down from the audience stands to go and congratulate Wolfman for beating Master Hand.*
Wolfman breathes heavily after the howling and getting off the stage and whatnot.
Master Hand: "Well... it's been a while since I've fought anyone. I figured I might as well try to win with a bang... I guess I underestimated you."
Darkdata: "It's going to cost him alot for a new glove."
Wolfman: "I also underestimated you. We both got our goals accomplished though, win or lose."
Master Hand: "Have anything else to say? I must soon prepare for the next mission... one Smash Emblem of Four is enough to protect your land, but not enough to stop The Void."
Digifanatic: "I imagine as such."
Wolfman: "Well, an idea on where the next one is wouldn't hurt, if it's alright to know."
Wolfman will seek out Kirby after this chat.
Master Hand: "It is one of several places... the next one will involve none other than Kirby's realm... but it seems to have been moved. I must figure out where it went..."
Wolfman: "Take your time then... we both need rest. Once The Void is stopped, though, we'll need to put more shows on."
Master Hand: "Oh. I almost forgot."
Metal Man (GM): He throws a badge in the shape of the Quester Badge, but with the Smash symbol on it as well, to Wolfman.
Dragoshi: "That we do..."
Wolfman catches... a Quester Badge?
Digifanatic: "Ooh... somebody got a prize."
Master Hand: "You can summon me once a mission to smack your enemies for an attack. Since you have proven yourself worthy of my direct aid."
Darkdata: "Ooh... Nice."
Wolfman: "...I'll try not to use you too much."
Blade: "Hmm... I may have to try this; though I think I'll get splattered."
Master Hand: "Of course... you have to give up an entire turn to it, but it's worth it."
Wolfman: "I've been working on not using my Wolfkahouha so much!"
Digifanatic: "I like that."
Wolfman: "And that was difficult enough!"
Master Hand: "More can challenge me... later." He flies off.
Wolfman: "...if you guys don't mind, I wish to find Kirby. If he has any anger, I'd rather have some backup."
Digifanatic: "Ohhh... yeah, I understand that."
Wolfman and Quester Entourage seek out Kirby.
Metal Man (GM): Kirby is sitting on a bench. He doesn't seem too angry. In fact, he's eating stuff.
Wolfman: .oO(...why am I only slightly surprised?) "...been awhile since we've seen you here Kirby."
Kirby: "???" He turns to Wolfman. "Puyo." He seems at attention... not irritated, though.
Wolfman: .oO(...he's lost his ability to speak. ...he's at peace?) "...we don't have to worry. I'm just going to run into Metal now or something."
Wolfman wanders to... who knows where?
Metal Man (GM): Wolf walks off. Kirby seems peaceful.
Wolfman: .oO(how can Kirby be happy with losing 25K coins? Either way... better run into Metal. I'm curious as to how much money was made by that match)
Metal Man (GM): Metal sits in the Big Room, counting big bills...
Wolfman finds Metal... ooh.
Metal Man: "Let's see..."
Digifanatic: "Well, not much of importance right now... I'll be around."
Metal Man: "This one for my car... this one for Dr. Mario... this pile for utilities..."
Wolfman: "...that looks like a lot of money."
Metal Man: "And then this massive pile goes directly into storage. Yes. It is."
Wolfman: .oO(...why does Dr. Mario get a separate account?) "About how much did we make that went into storage?"
Metal Man: "About a mill. We're saving it for end of the world sort of stuff, you know."
Wolfman: "Good idea."
Wolfman breathes easily... he finds the Energy Take dispenser and refills. *back to 3 lives, full health.*
