Super Smash Quest - Story - Chapter 389: Bowserzilla
Date: July 17th, 2007.
Metal Man (GM): The sky is now blood red.
Dragoshi: *Leaning 'gainst the Big Room wall, looking at the sky.* "...Damn."
Metal Man (GM): It's become eerily quiet, as sensors show an image of Turion exploding one moment, then ceasing to exist.
Wolfman gets a look at the sky for a moment...
Wolfman then sees the Turion sky... uh oh. "...do NOT say we have to go back to Turion!"
Dragoshi: *Sees the sensors.* "...Well, there goes Turion."
Metal Man: "...Turion no longer exists, so I don't really see us going there. It probably took Skyhigh with it, too..."
Digifanatic: "Dang, dude..."
Wolfman chuckles at that thought.
Metal Man: "Moody Mandy somehow got here before it exploded, though."
Wolfman: "Sky High... how DID he become a god up there anyway?"
Dragoshi: "...How the heck..."
Digifanatic: "You may not want to know."
Metal Man: "Some insane story, I'd guess... though more to the point, I doubt that was really Skyhigh."
Dragoshi: "You don't remember? Well, it involved a dead Aetos, some grapes and a staff..."
Alexia: "Metal, where's the last Emblem?"
Dragoshi: "I thought you were there, Wolf." >_>
Metal Man: "The real one, the guy I knew and hated, died long ago. That one was weird. He liked disco, '70s stuff, and was always drunk. Similar, but... just not real."
Alexia: "Metal, seriously, we don't have time..."
Metal Man: "The last emblem. Well, that's an interesting story."
Digifanatic: "Yeah. Let's move on to that."
Dragoshi: "Go on."
Metal Man: "It was once up at the top of Star Road, with the crystal stars."
Metal Man: "Indeed. It would have been CAKE to get had it stayed up there."
Darkdata: "Where is it now?"
Dragoshi: "And, let me guess. Someone took it?" ."
Metal Man: "But a while ago, Bowser burglarized it. I'm talking before The Void even existed."
Wolfman: "...so we have to do graverobbing?"
Dragoshi: *Or did it just magically and for no reason whatsoever-Oh."
Metal Man: "The Master Hand reports sensing it somewhere in a giant castle in the midst of the Mushroom Kingdom. A really old one, too."
Dragoshi: "...Well, if we do, then it's a good thing you have me on your side." >_>
Metal Man: "Bowser's first major castle."
Wolfman: "...the one Mario destroyed to rescue Peach for the first time?"
Darkdata: "Wow, the one he only had enough money to paint 3 colors."
Metal Man: "He left it there and it was abandoned in the fighting and madness of Kuja battles and such. Yes."
Digifanatic: "Whoda thought it'd still be there?"
Metal Man: "It's still there, and the emblem appears to be pulsating with more power than witnessed before."
Alexia: "Then we'd better hurry..."
Metal Man: "Turion may have died, but it also wasted The Void's time. We have plenty of time to get the last emblem."
Wolfman: "...why do I have a feeling that we're going to have to face Bowser again, even if he did die?"
Metal Man: "As he cannot destroy the sun without getting burned... I hope. Anyway... enjoy this mission. It may be our last normal one."
Metal Man: "Because I have no clue what The Void has in store for us."
Dragoshi: "Prolly' something inane."
Metal Man: "Or what'll happen when we go beyond simply fighting him as usual."
Metal Man: "Because it's a fairly simple thing: he's perfectly defeatable right now. And in fact, that's what he'd expect us to do."
Metal Man: "But in defeating him, he'd simply rise again and destroy what he hasn't already. It all began with that; but it shall end... permanently."
Dragoshi: "And, so, once we get this last one, we can truly end this-Yea. That."
Metal Man: "Now, I have a few warnings."
Metal Man: "The Castle itself? Hardly defended at all."
Metal Man: "But there's a massive force of evil in the center of it. I mean. Massive. Super massive. We've only seen this kind a few times. I think whatever remains of the true evil of Nintendus wants a rematch. What that is... we don't know."
Digifanatic: "Could be anything."
Dragoshi: "...Remnants of Zylcon?"
Darkdata: "Great... So, what were the lyrics of Barney again?"
Dragoshi: "I thought Wolf killed him with Barney Music."
Wolfman: "Don't ask how I came up with that idea either."
Dragoshi: "Just be glad you did?"
Metal Man: "I don't think this is any Zylcon."
Dragoshi: "...Huh. In any case... Do you have any more warnings beyond that?"
Metal Man: "Mainly... be careful. The Void will try to force our hand, if he can."
Metal Man opens the warp. "Be careful, Questers."
Alexia: "Got it. You be careful too."
Alexia enters the warp.
Dragoshi: *Nods, then enters the warp.*
Digifanatic: "Yep. Here we go, folks." *warp.*
Darkdata: "We will Metal. Or try to be anyway."
Darkdata steps part-way into the warp. "I will try to keep Alexia from getting cursed this time." *Rolls eyes and enter the warp.*
Wolfman warps in.
Metal Man (GM): The Questers reach the Olde Mushroom Kingdome. They appear in a very old, dilapidated area. Ruined houses... burnt blocks. Empty Koopa shells.
Wolfman gets warped... ah... this feels better. .oO(...mostly.) "...alright, what happened here?"
Metal Man (GM): This place has taken a beating from Mario's old romping, and was abandoned fully for more modern areas.
Dragoshi: "...Looks like it rained fire." >_>;;
Digifanatic: "I'd say so."
Metal Man (GM): It's relatively small--a lot of the earlier SMB level areas were simply built on top of. Even the bottomless pits seem broken, as they're so full of dust and dirt that they're ditches.
Wolfman: "...this seems WAY too easy. Keep alert."
Metal Man (GM): The bricks don't float so well either, and the ? blocks are randomly broken like some neon signs.
Dragoshi: "...It is."
Darkdata: "Wow, this is odd..."
Alexia: "...What's up with those floating blocks?"
Wolfman: "They are the kind that you hit from below... like so!" *does so on one of them.*
Metal Man (GM): A sign flies out. "DUD."
Wolfman: "... ...that's NOT how it's supposed to work."
Dragoshi: "...Well they are old."
Metal Man (GM): However, there is something less dilapidated nearby.
Wolfman tries again on another one.
Metal Man (GM): The other one explodes like cheap glass.
Dragoshi: *He looks for the less dilapidated thing be.*
Metal Man (GM): A wilted flower hits the ground and turns to dust.
Darkdata: "Same idea, but mushrooms pop out Alexia, and not signs."
Wolfman: "...alright, no powerups or coins here."
Metal Man (GM): There's that massive castle.
Metal Man (GM): While the Bill blasters are busted too, there's light inside.
Alexia then starts heading for the castle.
Wolfman: .oO(...I wonder if we're going to have to fight on a big bridge...)
Dragoshi: *Would proceed to do the same.*
Digifanatic: *heads in.*
Metal Man (GM): The Questers enter it. Odd! It seems in much better shape.
Darkdata follows behind Alexia, being careful stuff.
Digifanatic takes out his energy binoculars just to see how strong it is.
Dragoshi: "...How the heck..."
Metal Man (GM): The perfectly formed steps down have a fiery glow ahead.
Alexia: "...That can't be good."
Metal Man (GM): There's pictures of Bowser on the walls, recently dusted.
Darkdata: "Who hired a cleaning crew?"
Wolfman: "...someone has been redecorating."
Wolfman: "Well, time to ye olde platforminge."
Alexia heads down the steps.
Wolfman will move down slowly, thankful there is no time limit.
Darkdata walks down the steps behind Alexia.
Metal Man (GM): The Questers walk down... And they see a small lava pit! Everybody's gonna have to leap over it.
Dragoshi: *Walks down as well, sees the pit.* "...Uh-huh."
Wolfman was waiting for it... good ole lava. He runs back, and goes for his first jump!
Alexia backs up a bit, then runs forward and jumps.
Wolfman will mid-air jump!
Darkdata: "Pheh." *Solid Air Clearsong.*
Digifanatic just puts his binoculars away and goes for the jump.
Dragoshi: *Dragoshi goes for za jump o' dewm! >_>*
Alexia tries to double-jump as well.
Dragoshi: *And, Mid-air jump, just in case!*
Wolfman makes it.
Dragoshi: *Which means Dragoshi makes it! >_>*
Metal Man (GM): Darkdata's air bridge catches on fire!
Alexia lands rather ungracefully on the other side. *ker-thump.*
Metal Man (GM): As to make it solid it's gotta have higher air pressure. High air pressure makes it easier to burn. And it's over insanely hot lava.
Alexia: "...Nobody saw that."
Alexia gets up and dusts off her jeans.
Digifanatic: *easily makes it on the second jump...*
Wolfman turns around to see Darkdata jumping. "Let's not worry about that right now. I'm just concerned if we have to traverse through a maze in this place."
Darkdata: "Yeah. Avoid air spells around lava."
Metal Man (GM): The steps go a bit higher up here, to the top of some sort of 'hill' inside the fortress. Oh dear... there's a Dry Bones up there.
Wolfman: "...a Dry Bones? That's it? Dragoshi, I think you can burn this one up."
Darkdata: *Casts chaos Dance on the dry bones.*
Dragoshi: "'Kay." *Breathes fire on it. >_>*
Metal Man (GM): He is unable to dance. He is then not damaged by fire.
Wolfman: "Well, in that case... I'll just do things the old fashioned way!"
Wolfman will jump ON the dry bones.
Wolfman will midair for better height for gravity sake.
Wolfman hopes to LAND and crumple the bones.
Metal Man (GM): Wolf Midairs and hit it. It is temporarily defeated.
Digifanatic walks past the DB.
Dragoshi: *Walks by it.*
Wolfman: "Let's hurry." *moves on.*
Darkdata walks by it.
Alexia heads past the Dry Bones.
Metal Man (GM): Everyone walks by it, and now they see a giant firestick spinning around on the floor. In fact, it's an entire hallway of them. Garrick would warp in, too.
Digifanatic looks to see what the radius on that sucker is...
Alexia: "...Whee. Jumprope from hell."
Dragoshi: "...I think you have to destroy one of these by jumping over them multiple times."
Garrick: "...hmm. This is odd."
Dragoshi: "...Or was that for the newer versions..."
Wolfman: "...I think we should just go past this one Dragoshi."
Alexia: "...Can't we just extinguish them?"
Wolfman: "This isn't one of Mario's Parties you know."
Digifanatic: "Yeah... run under them."
Garrick: "I'm guessing the last Emblem is here?"
Dragoshi: "...Under? What? Also, yes, Garrick."
Wolfman tries to observe the movement of the fire stick, to see if it stays... well, "2D" like.
Garrick: *checks down the hallway to see if it would be at least POSSIBLE to get through it without getting hit, with the right set of movements.*
Metal Man (GM): With a perfect set of movements, anyone can walk by it... however, Wolfman realizes a flaw. It's 2D. He can just walk around them in the middle of the hallway.
Wolfman: .oO(...well then.)
Wolfman will go 3D and get past the firebars.
Dragoshi: *Sees what Wolfman's doing, and decides to copy him by going into the mysterious THIRD DIMENSION.*
Digifanatic: *notices Wolf's movements and goes to do the same.* "He's on his game today."
Garrick: "...huh? What... how did he do that?" *tries to mimic what he just did..*
Darkdata flips. And walks down the now easy to move path. wee~
Metal Man (GM): Everyone walks right by all of them.
Alexia just... tries walking around them without all this flipping mumbo-jumbo.
Metal Man (GM): However, the next area is... exponentially worse.
Digifanatic: "Uh oh... chamber of doom."
Garrick: "Thiiiis ain't good."
Metal Man (GM): Alexia walks by them, and then the Questers see the real challenge: 10 platforms moving around over magma... Giant Bowser-shaped fire bursts flying over them like missiles...
Metal Man (GM): And podobos (flying fireballs with eyes) leaping between them. And they're fully 3D.
Dragoshi: *Tries to see if one could time their jumps and whatnot to dodge all this silly fire and land on the platforms with no problem... Though, not by jumping. But by eyeballing. >_>**
Wolfman: .oO(...well, this is an interesting room.)
Metal Man (GM): The platforms sit in mid-air, moving left and right a little.
Digifanatic: "Think a Tidal Blast or two may work, Drag?"
Wolfman doesn't jump just yet... he attempts to see if one of his claws can stick into these walls in general.
Dragoshi: "...No it won't."
Darkdata: "Maybe if I amp it a bit. We can give it a try Drago."
Alexia looks around for something that might help them get across... a broken pipe to lightsaber, a switch, something.
Dragoshi: "...No. It won't work."
Metal Man (GM): The walls are too tough for Wolfman's claws. Alexia finds nothing.
Wolfman: .oO(Alright, so much for trying to imitate Sonic or Shadow's Triangle Jump)
Darkdata: "We don't have to solidify all the lava, just a path."
Alexia: "Said path would melt."
Garrick: "Even if we did, it'd just reheat with the other lava around it."
Wolfman: "I think I'll just take my chances with the old school ways."
Wolfman will make his first jump.
Dragoshi: "That's what I think the amplify is for. ...I think."
Darkdata: "It could keep it solid long enough to make it across."
Dragoshi: "But, fine. We'll try that and if it works, then it works. If not, then let's just say I was right and move on."
Metal Man (GM): Wolfman makes it up to the first platform.
Alexia: "...There's just something that doesn't add up here."
Wolfman will run first then!
Wolfman better jump as well.
Alexia: "Bowser looked like a lousy jumper. Why would he put something like *this.* in here?"
Wolfman will midair from here if possible... doubt it though, if podobos get in the way.
Digifanatic: "Well, if possible... I can try to port all of us--or at least some of us--over to the opposite end hazard-free. But that may be a stretch."
Dragoshi: "Now how about trying that idea..."
Darkdata: "Cast your spell Dragoshi."
Metal Man (GM): Wolfman catches on fire.
Darkdata begins singing the Amplify Clearsong.
Wolfman gets burned!
Dragoshi: "'Kay..." *Starts tidal blasting the lava even though he knows this'll fail...*
Darkdata uses Amplify. Then uses Seal to block the lava from the bridge. "...boost the power of the tidal blast ... seal the lava .. from the rest..."
Metal Man (GM): Wolfman leaps some more. Meanwhile, the lava eats all the water without being effected. However, using seal, one blocks the heat the lava does from any bridge of air that'd be made over it.
Darkdata quickly casts a bridge of air and runs across.
Digifanatic: *Follows DD.*
Alexia runs across the bridge ASAP.
Dragoshi: *Follows as well. Whee.*
Metal Man (GM): Wolfman makes it across, Darkdata runs across his bridge as does Digi and Dragoshi and Alexia.
Garrick: "Oh well..." *makes to follow the lot of them. He goes to jump?*
Metal Man (GM): No, Garrick can run across that bridge Darkdata made. However, Podobos are trying to get at it. Better hurry. Meanwhile: All see the door to where Bowser's chamber would be. Hm. It's been left open.
Digifanatic puts on those binoculars again if it's safe to do so.
Wolfman: .oO(...trouble. open door)
Garrick: *will just cross the bridge, then.*
Alexia: "...Shouldn't that be closed and locked?"
Metal Man (GM): Garrick walks all the way across, to see the mysteriously unlocked door as well.
Garrick: "...doesn't then just scream TRAP right in your ear?"
Garrick: "Want I should walk in first? Meatshield it up?"
Darkdata focuses on his harp's ability to detect magic.
Alexia: "Depends on your willingness to get possibly mutilated..."
Garrick: "Eh. Done it all before." *proceeds to draw the M-150, kick the door open, and immediately sweep the room at a glance as trained by both military and Quester standards.*
Metal Man (GM): Garrick kicks open the door. Odd... it's Bowser's throne room. Complete with big screen TV.
Wolfman: .oO(...since when did Bowser keep a big screen in here?)
Metal Man (GM): A giant turtle walks in from the other side. He sees the Questers... and laughs. It's... BOWSER?!?!?!?!
Digifanatic follows in... .oO(I knew it.)
Dragoshi: "...Huh. Something has failed to make sense." >_>
Garrick: "...though you were too old to do this stuff anymore."
Alexia: *Pistol out and ready to fire!*
Bowser: "Heh heh heh! You punks don't know how to kill me! The Void tricked ya good with that impersonation of me. Too old? Nah. I've only gotten better at it. I don't even need a massive army to stop the likes of you anymore..."
Alexia: "Hey, Drag. Craving some turtle soup?"
Wolfman: "...I thought you would be helping your kids out. One of them got a bit angry upon hearing you died... supposedly."
Garrick: "Mmmm, turtle soup. Served in the shell."
Dragoshi: "...Well, he is a bigger soup dish than Ricky... Maybe. Maybe not."
Bowser: "You little tykes think you can defeat me? I'm far too strong to be beaten by you wimps." He cracks his muscles. "Besides. I know what you're after... I got it first!"
Darkdata thinks for a second.
Dragoshi: "...And I already know where this is going."
Darkdata uses his eyes of truth.
Dragoshi: "You're going to pull the same thing Doop Scoop did, right?" >_>
Metal Man (GM): Darkdata sees blinding power exude from every pore of Bowser.
Wolfman: "Alright Bowser... what do you want?"
Alexia: "We can tell. Now are you gonna give it up?"
Bowser: "Bah! I am better than any freak in a bedsheet any day!"
Alexia: "Or do you prefer severe bleeding?"
Nick Caligo (GM): His pupils dilate. His irises seem to light on fire.
Darkdata: "Ok, he is really powerful. REALLY powerful."
Dragoshi: "Everyone knows that this is going to end up the hard way..." *Sigh.*
Nick Caligo (GM): Wind bursts from his body, nearly knocking everyone off their feet.
Wolfman gets... OOMPH. .oO(...is this what Giga Bowser's transformation is like...?)
Garrick: *holds his arms in a X pattern, trying to hold himself upright.*
Dragoshi: "Like insane powerful?" *Almost knocked off his feet, but manages, 'cause he's durable.*
Alexia staggers back some before regaining her balance.
Garrick: "Just my luck... again... he's using the Emblem..."
Bowser: "SHUT UP! I've had it with all the talk! This time, you're all gonna bite it!"
Nick Caligo (GM):His whole body shudders; he spreads his arms and lets out a shrill roar as the blinding light emanating from his body overcomes everyone's eyes completely.
Metal Man (GM): Outside the window, one would see lightning. The sheer power of this display was altering the weather outside, too!
Garrick: *growls as he shades his eyes the best he can.*
Alexia covers her eyes with one arm. This is gonna be bad...
Nick Caligo (GM): When everyone's vision clears, it seems like the room has become much darker.
Dragoshi: "...Nice lighting."
Digifanatic: *closes eyes for a bit...*
Nick Caligo (GM): Blackness looms over the Questers like a dark cloud.
Darkdata: "Come on eyes, adjust..."
Wolfman just looks... up.
Nick Caligo (GM): ... No... it's not the lighting.
Dragoshi: *It's Bowser?*
Nick Caligo (GM): That's Bowser... or rather, his shadow.
Dragoshi: *Aha! I knew it!* "...Ay carumba."
Garrick: "...oh... my... god..."
Alexia: "Stand guard, everyone. This is gonna be messy!"
Digifanatic: "Like what Metal said..."
Dragoshi: "...Wouldn't that be obvious, considering...?"
Nick Caligo (GM): Three times his normal size, standing so broad that his arms and legs surround everyone, his burning red eyes stare down at the Questers with unrelenting hatred, rage, and a the burning, sinful pride that gives Bowser the drive to keep coming even in the face of a thousand defeats.
Darkdata: "Dammit, where is seven of a plot device when you need them."
Garrick: *can't help but smile a little at Dark's comment.*
Wolfman waits for the transformation to be complete.
Dragoshi: *Chuckles as Dark says that...*
Nick Caligo (GM): They're practically the only light the Questers see as their eyes adjust; his body's become darker. His shell ridged with jagged spines thrusting out of it where round spikes once grew. His red hair is wild, and his horns are now twisted, long, and sharp. The Questers are faced with rows of horrible, sharp teeth that drip with feral drool. Everything about him--his collar, his tail, his -claws---is bigger, sharper. meaner. He roars hell in the Questers' faces, the mere wind uttering from his jaws being enough to push them back a couple of steps.
Dragoshi: *Pushed back a little bit...* .oO(Phew! Has he ever heard of a breath mint?)
Garrick: *shields himself as best he can with one arm, staring over his sleeve. Dear god... this would NOT be pretty...*
Alexia: "..." *one quiet Draconic curse.*
Garrick: "...alright, okay... we've taken bigger..."
Dragoshi: *Hisses, standing his ground.* "Yep..."
Nick Caligo (GM): His breath alone is searing hot; enough to make the Questers sweat. They see flames beginning to utter from his windpipe. Giga Bowser--the ultimate evil of the Mushroom Kingdom--now stands before them. Above them. Around them.
Darkdata: "Great. Lovely. Wonderful. I stand by my last comment."
Garrick: "Don't crowd together, that's just begging for a breath flame... spread apart, find a spot on the body that looks soft and just keep hitting it."
Wolfman: .oO(...had to figure if I would fight him)
Dragoshi: .oO(...I hate it when I'm right sometimes.)
Digifanatic tries to heed Garrick's word as best as he can, but is there room to do it?
Metal Man (GM): The massive Giga Bowser clenches his claws and takes a single step forwards, shaking the entire old structure and causing giant bricks to fall from the ceiling. It is clear... that it is time to fight. BATTLE. Giga Bowser is so huge that movement is pointless; he's always in range, and always in the Questers' faces. He lunges at Dragoshi with one of his massive claws, causing another tremendous shake, and knocking several things in the background over. He grabs Dragoshi and relentlessly bites him, before throwing him like a ping-pong ball so he bounces off the floor, into the Big Screen TV, and then back onto the ground again.
Dragoshi: *Shaken up really badly after that, but still alive. :p*
Metal Man (GM): Then he inhales deeply--it's like a jet engine, almost--and lets out a massive WAVE of fire at everyone, which roasts whatever it hits... instantly.
Digifanatic: *OH SNAP.*
Dragoshi: *Staying alive...*
Alexia gets char-broiled... somewhat.
Garrick: *yells out loud as he's torched by the fire, growling, his jacket ALREADY singed...*
Metal Man (GM): He takes a look at everyone, and then sees Garrick. Remembering past fights, he angrily goes to stomp him into the ground. However, his foot is rather slow...
Metal Man (GM): *SMASH* Garrick is brutally smashed into the floor. It's like a house landing on him. He puts his foot back and roars again.
Garrick: *immediately dies...*
Wolfman: .oO(...well, if I HAVE to be cheap...)
Dragoshi: "...Ow. Anyway..." *Dragoshi would start off his turn by using Five-Clawed Discount on 'im, in an attempt to take the Emblem.* .oO(I bet this won't work...)
Metal Man (GM): Hit. Dragoshi utterly fails to even touch the emblem. It's a part of him now.
Dragoshi: "Typical..." *Now Dragoshi would try to fry Bowser with Indignation!*
Metal Man (GM): He is not stunned. The hit seemingly only damages him.
Dragoshi: *But, anyways, Dragoshi quickly draws out his scythe and starts cutting up Giga Bowser. <_>*
Digifanatic: *What do you do when you've got such a massive enemy like that? Well, audience, we start with one cup of Ice Punch and mix that in with a dash of Running Charge, and leave that to set while we guard Dragoshi!*
Metal Man (GM): Hit, hit. He's hard to miss, but even harder to stun or such. Hit, hit.
Digifanatic: *Guarding Drag!* "Not sure how effective fire will be against him..."
Wolfman isn't teaming up with anyone yet... (so don't ask)
Metal Man (GM): It is normally effective; mainly because he seemingly has no weaknesses either.
Wolfman will attempt to Dex Giga Bowser... discreetly.
Metal Man (GM): The dex's screen lights up solid green. Too much energy to dex him.
Wolfman: .oO(...wha? What type of error is this?!?)
Wolfman might as well go aggressive with his first attack... he's easy to hit anyway. BERSERKER BARRAGE!
Wolfman is out of juice for now...
Metal Man (GM): All hit but one, which pings off his armor. He roars again, reaching for Digi with one of his massive claws. He hurls Digi into the ceiling.
Darkdata winces as he watches Digi become part of the ceiling.
Metal Man (GM): Then he punches at Dragoshi. *SMASH* Dragoshi is sent flying backwards into the wall.
Dragoshi: *Smashed into the wall... Ow. @_@.*
Metal Man (GM): Then he attempts to grab Darkdata. He picks up Darkdata, bites him repeatedly, then hurls him off the walls like a pinball.
Darkdata: "ACK~" @_@.
Dragoshi: "Now you know how I felt, Dark." >_>;;
Darkdata casts haste to give everyone a boost~
Darkdata then makes a Return Postage stance.
Metal Man (GM): Giga Bowser opens wide and breathes another furious wave of fire at everyone.
Darkdata: "Bowser, Bowser, He Can't Fight! He is like a lamb in flight!"
Wolfman is not happy...
Garrick: *still dead.*
Digifanatic: *did it again!*
Metal Man (GM): Digi falls off the ceiling. Giga Bowser then goes to try to smash what remains of Dragoshi into the ground.
Digifanatic: *Assumes he can't guard that due to the claw.*
Metal Man (GM): He misses, sending debris flying everywhere. So he throws a punch at Dragoshi. *PUNCH*
Dragoshi: *You typical bastard.. Seriously. I predicted that...*
Digifanatic: .oO(Nothing I can guard against these days...)
Dragoshi: *Revives... Drink Eggman Coffee. Stupid predictable attack pattern...*
Digifanatic figures that he can't do much help defensively with the exception of items that probably won't mean much in this sort of long run... anyways. He goes for five normals all in a row this time: a smack of the Golf Club, three straight Aerial Strikes, and then another Running Charge once all is said and done.
Metal Man (GM): Hit.
Garrick: *is back up NOW. And basically does what he was GOING to do last turn. Two three round salvos to either eye and one in the mouth if it's open. If not, in the nose.*
Metal Man (GM): Hit miss miss hit miss hit. They hit him repeatedly, yet even hitting him in the eyes doesn't seem to do more than damage. It's like he's made of steel.
Darkdata: "Ya know Dragoshi, we might be able to freeze his mouth shut if we team up. Like what we did to The Void. Or not."
Wolfman is going to die soon, so he might as well make the most of it. One round of Wolfkahouha Mayhem, coming up!
Metal Man (GM): Hit. He roars again and decides to try to grab Darkdata.
Metal Man (GM): He hurls Darkdata into the ceiling.
Darkdata: "Zuhashadma, slf."
Metal Man (GM): He then grabs at Garrick, trying to throw him around. He bites and hurls Garrick all over the room.
Metal Man (GM): He finishes off by punching at Digi.
Darkdata: "Hmm... Well, duty calls!"
Darkdata eats a psychoshroom. "SPIN WEE EGGMAN TIME RAINBOW GLOW!"
Digifanatic: .oO(Ohhhhhh boy.)
Darkdata: "Reswob skcus1" *spins.*
Metal Man (GM): Traon appears just in time for Giga Bowser to breathe another blast of fire.
Digifanatic: *I'll take the damage.*
Wolfman: *BOOM Boom boom boom boom...*
Darkdata: "Hgis, gniklat ekil siht skcus. IT'S EGGMAN TIME!" *spin.*
Metal Man (GM): He then begins charging up for a smash attack...
Dragoshi: *Dragoshi starts charging up something as well, as the chill in the wind (if there is any) gets stronger as he mutters something... >_>*
Digifanatic: *TEAM ATTACK* "Launch it now!"
Dragoshi: "Understood!" *To Giga Bowser.* "Now, may the chilling winds freeze you alive! ICE TORNADO!" *Suddenly, after Dragoshi says that, he unleashes a massive tornado of ice destruction spin over to Giga Bowser as if to consume him in it's destructive chill...*
Digifanatic: *After the first Ice Tornado, it goes a little something like this, ALL IN RAPID-FIRE (to the best it can be done): Fire Punch (Digi)/2nd Ice Tornado (Drag)/2nd Fire Punch (Digi again)
Metal Man (GM): Hit.
Digifanatic: *Basically, a massive two-round antipodish assault from those two Ds.*
Metal Man (GM): Hit. Hit, hit. He takes that massive blast... ...and is ready to continue fighting.
Dragoshi: *Panting heavily from that.* "Damn..."
Garrick: *can't do much, here... his attacks are seemingly too weak to do much damage... and his major attacks are halved cause of his lack of sword, so, with nothing else left to turn to, he unloads as many shots into that throat of his as he can.*
Digifanatic: *optimistically.* "That was worth it."
Dragoshi: "Heheh... Yep."
Metal Man (GM): Miss miss hit hit hit hit hit hit hit miss miss hit. One crit in there.
Traon just appears holding his crowbar in one hand and his naginata in the other. He then walks over to Garrick and offers his crowbar. "Ya know, this can pass as a sword, give it a shot." he then goes about running at Giga Bowser 1, going for his crimson slash.
Garrick: *rolls his eyes and takes it... wonderful. From rusty dull crap to not even a sword...*
Metal Man (GM): Hit.
Wolfman is kind of waiting for the revival platform to get him back up and running... bother him after Giga Bowser Turn 1.
Metal Man (GM): Giga Bowser unleashes his full fury, punching the wall behind everyone and levelling it instantly! *SMASH* It falls on everyone.
Dragoshi: *EVERYONE IS DAMAGED.*
Digifanatic: *WALL'D. And that rids him of his first life.*
Dragoshi: *Damn walls...*
Darkdata: *Uses repel clearsong as a counter.*
Dragoshi: *In some pain, but stayin' alive. Like a disco duck.*
Metal Man (GM): It doesn't work. It definitely doesn't work. It's like repelling a tsunami.
Garrick: *dead, again.*
Darkdata: *Koed. Revives.*
Wolfman wasn't yet brought back, so no damage done.
Darkdata: *Chows down two more psycho shrooms. Then one more psychoshroom. Uses Restore Clearsong on the rusted sword.*
Metal Man (GM): It becomes... ...a dull sword. Same + to damage.
Garrick: "... ...well, at least it's not rusty."
Darkdata: *Eats another Psycho shroom. Uses Restore Clearsong on the Dull sword.*
Metal Man (GM): It doesn't get any better than that. It's a dull sword. Poorly made, and hacked around at dirt by an amateur Quester.
Garrick: "...just stop trying.
Darkdata: "Haey." *spins sadly. Recasts haste.*
Metal Man (GM): Giga Bowser ignores Darkdata, who is better than he is at damaging himself.
Wolfman will warp in AFTER this attack.
Metal Man (GM): He then looks at Garrick, thinking him to be the target of constant healing, and decides to grab at him. He chucks Garrick into the ceiling, then goes to really grab Digi.
Garrick: "GRAH!!!" *WHAM.*
Metal Man (GM): He grabs Digi's corpse, bites him, and hurls him around the room. He goes to punch Traon. SMACK.
Wolfman would have been revived by now...
Metal Man (GM): Darkdata's haste simply replaces his previous haste rather than stacking.
Dragoshi: *He throws a Molotov at Giga Bowser!* "Hrrm... Let's try that again." *And, Dragoshi... flings darts at Giga Bowser! >_>*
Metal Man (GM): Hit, hit, hit.
Digifanatic: *Revives... NOW! And an Icy Kick to boot.*
Metal Man (GM): Hit.
Garrick: *Looks to the others to see if they are doing a Team Attack here.*
Wolfman is ready for action.
Garrick: "Wolf! Dark!"
Darkdata: "I can try to do a attack" *spin bla.*
Wolfman: "...got a plan Garrick?"
Darkdata: "I can throw debris at him!"
Garrick: "We close that damn mouth of his... stay alive, all. Got another one of those big, busting attacks, Wolf?"
Wolfman: "I have one more Wolfkahouha left."
Darkdata: "Unless one of you have a magic attack..."
Wolfman: "But using it for a team attack? That's dangerous!"
Dragoshi: "So? Destructive power is what we need to take this guy down at the moment..."
Garrick: "And this isn't?! Got no real choice."
Wolfman: "Just tell me what to do and who I have to carry."
Garrick: "Wolf, you provide the explosion. Dark, you back him up. I'll apply the exclamation point."
Wolfman: "Dark, hop on."
Darkdata jumps on Wolfman's back.
Wolfman: "Understood Garrick. Good luck."
Wolfman has to protect Darkdata from dying... and himself for this to work. .oO(...I'm in for it)
Garrick: "Alright... here goes nothing." *lines himself up for this attack, right behind Wolf.*
Traon goes about his routine to form his blade of blood and again goes after Bowser 1. Vertical slash, and horizontal slash.
Traon then goes on to swing around and smack Bowser with the pole of his weapon.
Metal Man (GM): Hit.
Wolfman is holding off, waiting until Dark gets his vocal chords ready. .oO(...just gotta make sure Dark AND Garrick survive. Otherwise, this planned team attack will fail...)
Metal Man (GM): He breathes fire again!
Wolfman has to watch over Dark...
Dragoshi: *And, Drago finally evades it.*
Metal Man (GM): Then Bowser charges up.
Darkdata: *Revives. Eats a psychoshroom on wolf's back and gets ready to sing!* "Syug ydaer?"
Wolfman: "...I'll assume that's a yes."
Garrick: "Alright... HIT IT!"
Wolfman: "Power me up BEFORE I jump and howl."
Wolfman starts running towards Giga Bowser, Dark on top, Garrick behind. The plan...
Metal Man (GM): Success.
Wolfman then jumps and howls for the Wolfkahouha. The problem? The NEXT part of the attack... Garrick wants to ride on top of it for added boost in the air! Well... might as well try to damage with it anyway.
Metal Man (GM): Hit.
Darkdata: "Toow! Og kcirrag!"
Garrick: *braces himself for the move, racing after Wolf as he runs forward. As soon as Wolf jumps up, that surge of pure energy SHOOTING into the air. He leaps, jumps off Wolf as he rides the blast of energy into the air. Time seems to slow for him, seeing the individual sweat droplets falling from his face... he gently spins in mid air, his leg coming out and SLAMMING his heel down on his big, ugly snout.*
Darkdata: *Spin.* "Eggmantime!"
Garrick: *CRACK.* "Eat that, you overgrown turtle!!" *spirals backward, landing and skidding back, panting softly... watching him.*
Darkdata: *Shatter Clearsong on the room over bowser's head.*
Metal Man (GM): He takes the damage... and is ready to dish out his charge. He unleashes his charge, leaping up and then turning spike-side down... threatening everyone.
Wolfman gets SPIKED.
Metal Man (GM): *SMASH*
Garrick: *gets hit... and is still ALIVE...*
Wolfman: *beep beep.* *beep beep.* *beep beep.*
Dragoshi: *Staying alive... e_e.*
Metal Man (GM): He gets back up and proceeds to ready for his next round of destruction.
Wolfman is barely alive.
Garrick: "Good GOD! How is he still going?!"
Dragoshi: *Dragoshi... throws a pair of scythes at 'im!*
Metal Man (GM): Hit, hit.
Dragoshi: *Dragoshi then... has a tarantula bite GB! And, then...'Cause he really likes playing with fire. :p DARTS!*
Metal Man (GM): Hit, hit hit hit.
Dragoshi: *And, one last time... MORE DARTS!*
Digifanatic realizes what he's got to do this time: he downs a Recovery Vial and tries something he's never before: it's a normal Running Charge but he's brimming yellow and blue (Running Storm)! After that, to potentially ensure a bit of security to his mate, he guards Garrick for now.
Garrick: *is kneeling now, panting heavily... he's running low on strength... he groans softly as he one hands the M-150 as best as he can and fires a pair of AP rounds into his maul.*
Metal Man (GM): Hit, hit.
Traon is out for the count... until next turn.
Wolfman sees that Giga Bowser is STILL alive... sheesh! .oO(...sorry that I've been slightly dishonorable this time Master Hand, but I hope you won't hold that against me this time.)
Wolfman uses the Quester Badge! "Master Hand, please help us destroy our foe!" .oO(...summoning must take awhile)
Metal Man (GM): Master Hand appears and uses Wolfman's turn to smack at Giga Bowser twice. Hit, hit... He then flies off.
Wolfman: .oO(...well, that works.)
Digifanatic: .oO(We've got a chance...)
Wolfman: "Thank you."
Metal Man (GM): Giga Bowser looks angry now that Master Hand had intervened. He claws at Master Hand as he flees in vain, then breathes fire at everyone.
Darkdata: "Too bad there is no crazy hand, they could play catch with him..."
Wolfman: *BOOM Boom boom boom boom...*
Garrick: *is barely able to get away from that...*
Dragoshi: *lucky.* *Damn... so close...*
Metal Man (GM): He finished up by falling forward at Dragoshi.
Dragoshi: *Typical... Second life lost.*
Darkdata: *dead remember.*
Metal Man (GM): Giga Bowser charges up yet again...
Dragoshi: *Revives, and decides to attack Giga Bowser with a partially charged Flipkick... Using the scythe. >_>*
Digifanatic starts the turn by using the golf club once (worked last time), a segue into Fire Punch, and then one more Aerial Strike.
Metal Man (GM): Hit, hit, hit.
Garrick: *growls as he holds his side, firing off another two AP Rounds...*
Metal Man (GM): Miss hit hit.
Traon gets up from his KO and goes on the aggressive against Bowser. He reinstates his blood blade and goes for his usual slashing.
Metal Man (GM): Hit, hit. Giga Bowser roars... extremely loudly. What was left of the castle comes crashing down at everybody.
Digifanatic: *Crash and maybe burn.*
Dragoshi: *OHSHI-Phew... Dragoshi dances around all 'o that...*
Digifanatic: *Yeah, he's lost his second life. So it goes.*
Garrick: *dies... for good.*
Metal Man (GM): One turn after another??? He charges up again.
Wolfman will come back after Turn 1's action again.
Wolfman is back.
Dragoshi: "..." *Blink-ku. Anyways, Dragoshi casts Ice Tornado on GB.*
Metal Man (GM): CRIT. The number of Questers becomes less as Giga Bowser has totally demolished them over and over again. The fury in his eyes continues burning. It seems like he will never let up.
Dragoshi: *Anyway... Dragoshi unleashes a FULLY CHARGED flipkick at Giga Bowser, using the scythe for more damage! >_>*
Metal Man (GM): Hit, hit.
Digifanatic: *One more Revive... a whack of the golf club and then an Aerial Strike.* *He's dealt a ton of damage now... he's got himself a bit of a boost in his stats but not enough defense to fend of GB's slower attacks (most likely) off.*
Traon is still on his second life, so instead of popping a phoenix down, he tosses one to Drag. "You need this more than I do." he then goes for his blood blade attack again.
Dragoshi: "Thanks pal..." *Puts it away, saving it for when he's damaged...*
Metal Man (GM): Hit, hit.
Wolfman: .oO(...well, if it worked for Master Hand, it might work here.)
Wolfman will use his Wolf-like skills to attempt to climb up to at least his knee, if not his chest, and stick two of his claws in.
Metal Man (GM): Hit, hit. Giga Bowser is near defeat, but still has plenty of health. Wolf cannot latch onto him. He's... too tough.
Wolfman will just go aggressive berserker barrage then.
Wolfman hopes that does enough... *gulp.*
Metal Man (GM): He again powers up, and leaps up and down, creating a tsunami of concrete at everyone.
Wolfman hopes to avoid this...
Digifanatic: *out of luck...*
Dragoshi: *fuckin' typical...*
Digifanatic: *OH HE'S SMACKED ALRIGHT.*
Traon is now out... and revives! Woot.
Dragoshi: *Anyway... Dragoshi drinks that Phoenix Down! Wheee! Fully healed and 1 life healthier! Anyway, Dragoshi... throws a Molotov!*
Wolfman wishes he had a phoenix down...
Metal Man (GM): Hit.
Dragoshi: *And, this time... more darts. >_>*
Metal Man (GM): Hit hit hit.
Digifanatic decides that this may be a good time to try something he's thought of for a while... he starts with the typical Fire Punch and ends with using Digital Barrier on himself... *barrier'd,.*
Traon reaches into his pocket and takes out two ultra shrooms and tosses them to Wolfman. He's panting now, being on his last life and all, but that doesn't stop him from running at Bowser and trying for a stab.
Wolfman is still tired... and still thankful that he can digest mushrooms just like any other creature.
Metal Man (GM): Despite having been smashed around repeatedly, Giga Bowser remains in fighting condition. It's unbelievable! Even Kuja couldn't take this damage! The Questers could get up to his head with all that.
Wolfman: .oO(...time to be stupid.)
Wolfman will use his Melee abilities to get up on top of the head.
Wolfman AND once there... he will try to poke the eyes out!
Metal Man (GM): Hit, hit... his eyes must be made of steel, 'cause he didn't even blink.
Wolfman will have end of turn ON TOP of... well, I guess the nose area.
Metal Man (GM): Giga Bowser powers up again. He's getting desperate.
Dragoshi: "...Oh hayell."
Metal Man (GM): He throws Wolfman off (no damage), followed by opening his mouth. But fire does not come out... ...because instead he fires out something more like plasma. The molten energy incinerates everything it touches and annihilates the shredded pieces of castle that are burning in the distance.
Wolfman will try something ELSE instead.
Wolfman will attempt to air recover and Rocket Tackle away from the plasma!
Digifanatic: *Can't... he's trapped in the barrier. Vegas goes against the kid this morning.*
Dragoshi: *And, Dragoshi survives! Someone play some suitable music for this occasion! He will just not go down.*
Metal Man (GM): Wolf escapes the fiery doom.
Wolfman: .oO(I have a little bit of time.)
Dragoshi: "...Heheheh." *Chuckles as he...*
Digifanatic: *gently lets the Barrier down... he was hoping for a physical attack during GB's go.*
Dragoshi: *Summons a massive Black Dog which attempts to smash into Giga Bowser like one would smash into a church door!*
Metal Man (GM): Barely hit. However it only deals damage. It hits him and disintegrates. It's like running into a church wall.
Dragoshi: *And, Dragoshi ends his turn with a flipkick!*
Metal Man (GM): Hit, hit.
Digifanatic feels his condition and knows what he needs to do: an Ultra Shroom and an Ice Punch, for giggles.
Traon walks over to where Garrick lies and retrieve the Crowbar he let him borrow "Sorry Garrick, I'll be needing this." he then pops his last two shrooms and goes on the wait.
Wolfman will launch himself onto the head again... but this time, aggressive berserker barrage on the scalp!
Metal Man (GM): Hit miss miss hit miss.
Wolfman is on scalp of course.
Metal Man (GM): Desperately weak, the Giga Bowser targets Dragoshi with a massive stomp.
Dragoshi: *FAILURE.* "Ha..."
Metal Man (GM): And misses by an inch, smashing a massive crater into the ground. So he decides to fall on Dragoshi instead. And fails.
Dragoshi: *FAIL MAN.*
Metal Man (GM): So... he punches at Dragoshi.
Dragoshi: *FAIL MAN.*
Metal Man (GM): He fell at Dragoshi, like a bodyslam. He uses his grab attack at Dragoshi.
Dragoshi: *NOT FAIL.*
Wolfman attempts to hang on somehow during the fall!
Metal Man (GM): He bites and hurls Dragoshi into the floor. Then he tries to stomp on him again. *SMASH*
Metal Man (GM): He jumps up and down on Dragoshi for more effect.
Digifanatic: *Last or second-to-last?*
Metal Man (GM): Or probably not.
Dragoshi: *End of Life. Good thing I used that Phoenix Down... And Drag Revives! To DANCE AROUND THEM JUMPS.*
Metal Man (GM): Wolf stays on Bowser's head.
Dragoshi: "...Heheheh... You succeed at one thing. Failing." *Dragoshi tries to...*
Digifanatic: .oO(I can't believe it... he could have EASILY finished me off and removed one more threat... but he kept going for Dragoshi.)
Dragoshi: *Amethyst shard coming at Giga Bowser!*
Digifanatic: .oO(He could have finished a bunch of us off...)
Wolfman: .oO(Gotta hang on...)
Metal Man (GM): Hit.
Dragoshi: "Your lack of strategic capability shall be your downfall." *Chuckles as Giga Bowser is struck by the shard!*
Digifanatic knows he must had had some serious luck to not have died this last turn. Aerial Strike/Celestial Fury/Golf Club.*
Metal Man (GM): He teeters on the brink...
Traon is actually annoyed that he didn't get attacked, and so he rungs at Bowser with his crowbar in hand and forms a blood blade and goes for his normal routine.
Dragoshi: "Okay, Traon... Bottom of the ninth... Two outs and that oversize soup dish is lookin' real weak. KICK SOME ASS!"
Traon then goes on the aggressive again and this time he performs his dance of death.
Metal Man (GM): Miss hit miss.
Dragoshi: "...Man how much abuse can he take..."
Metal Man (GM): Again, he is still alive.
Wolfman will use his position on the scalp to his advantage then. First, two traditional claw swipes...
Wolfman will then rear back a little for a piercing style smash attack! Not quite what was done against Master Hand, but hopefully the force will keep him more secure in that scalp for when Giga Bowser makes his move.
Wolfman attempts to hang on on the scale on
Metal Man (GM): Wolfman killed him. Exactly on the dot.
Metal Man (GM): However, he doesn't fall over.
Dragoshi: "MAN DOWN! MAN DOWN! ...SOMEONE READY THE POTS!"
Wolfman: .oO(...wait: if he doesn't fall, what DOES he do?)
Giga Bowser: "You punks think I'm going to fall over and die? Fat chance!"
Darkdata groggily sits up, in critical energy depletion. "Grooaugh."
Traon: "I got my money on him blowing up."
Metal Man (GM): He chucks Wolfman off again, and then flexes his muscles.
Wolfman just air recovers... but makes no move to actually attack... yet.
Giga Bowser: "You may have bested me this time... but I'll be around long after you're gone! Haw haw haw! Take your puny Smash Emblem! I'm outta here!"
Dragoshi: "...Heheh. Thank you."
Metal Man (GM): He chucks the emblem at the Questers and then leaps into his Koopa Kopter.
Dragoshi: *Would catch the emblem.*
Darkdata: "I think, you need, decaf, bowser."
Metal Man (GM): He leaves a giant bomb as a thank-you promise. *BOOOM* It chars the Questers all black.
Digifanatic: "Dang... no soup for us."
Wolfman wanted to catch it...
Metal Man (GM): Then he flies off over the horizon...
Garrick: *lays there, still incredibly damaged, his arm in a weird position and his face a bloody mess. His jacket is completely gone thanks to all the fire.*
Dragoshi: *Blinks, charred black... er.*
Darkdata: *Cough.* "Yeah, decaf."
Metal Man (GM): The entire castle is burnt to cinders, as if it was exploded by an atomic bomb. As is the entire area.
Wolfman gets tosses, charred... but makes it through alive.
Metal Man (GM): The Emblem firmly in the Questers' hands... Mission Accomplished.
Digifanatic: *Level 95!*
Darkdata: ~You Got The Last Emblem! The Void's True Form Can Now Be Revealed!~ *Level Jump.* 75 => 77~
Garrick: *continues to lay there. Busted, broken, bloody, and still very dead. After that incredible series of attacks and everything he took, there's no way he could be alive after it all.*
Wolfman helps pick Garrick up.
Metal Man (GM): Metal appears on the dex.
Wolfman: "Wolfman speaking."
Metal Man: "Ah, good work guys. We have all 4 at last."
Darkdata gets up slowly. Really beaten and battered.
Dragoshi: *Picks Darkdata up and throws 'im over his shoulder.* "Yep..."
Metal Man: "But more crazy stuff is happening... you better get here quick."
Darkdata: "Ah, thanks Drago..."
Wolfman: "...I officially want a vacation after this ends Metal."
Metal Man: "I think The Void's angry that we took out Bowser like that."
Dragoshi: "Though, man did we have to do something insa-Oh, no prob, Dark. ...He is?"
Wolfman: "...just activate the warp and we'll be over there pronto."
Digifanatic: "Why wouldn't he be?"
Metal Man: "It's so bad that I'm gonna probably fight too..." The warp opens.
Dragoshi: "Well he can go eat a frozen cactus." *Enters the warp.*
Traon enters the warp as well.
Wolfman: .oO(...that's bad.)
Wolfman carries Garrick with him to the warp.
Wolfman finally sees what it's like for Questers to lose all of their lives in a mission in person...
Wolfman has to take Garrick to Dr. Mario.
Garrick: *lays over Wolf's back, either extremely unconscious or very dead. It's hard to tell, doesn't look like he's breathing.*
Metal Man (GM): The Questers are back at HQ.
Wolfman would probably go to Metal first, since Metal did sound urgent.
Dragoshi: *Would do the same...*
Metal Man (GM): Metal sits at his desk... but to find out what he said... the Questers will have to wait until tomorrow.
Digifanatic: *Also checks out to see what the boss would say but... oh well!*
Dragoshi: *And, Dragoshi leans against the wall as he waits for Metal to say his stuff... TOMORROW.*
Azure makes a brief cameo to heal peoples's wounds and disappear again.
Garrick: *remains dead until... TOMORROW!*
Digifanatic: *TO BE CONTINUE!*
Dr Mario: *chases Azure out.* "That's-a my job!"
