Super Smash Quest - Story - Chapter 406: Of Crashes and Fortresses
Date: October 16h and 17th, 2007.
Metal Man (GM): HQ's been heavily damaged. Destruction is all over the side where Giovanni hit. SIMBER is offline, and Snake... Snake just barely begins to stand up. The Questers are right nearby, taking a look at the devastation.
Dragoshi: *Smashes fist into the ground out of pure frustration, then walks over to Snake, muttering.*
Aribar groans, shakily getting up from the ground... Heavily bruised and bleeding, the elf has definitely seen better days.
Dragoshi: *And possibly with a somewhat hurting fist. Meh. :/*
Snake: "It appears... that we underestimated that magical jerk."
Metal Man (GM): He stands up slowly, dusting himself off.
ChancÃ© follows Drag the angry Dragon.
Dragoshi: "Apparently so."
Snake: "I was just informed of the intruder. I walked in to stop them, but somebody knew I was coming and KO'd me before I could even get a bead on that fool."
Dragoshi: "I see. Well, that explains a bit."
Metal Man (GM): Snake picks up a fire extinguisher and puts out the fires.
Snake: "Looks like a job for you to do, Questers... mainly..." He walks over to the computer in the damaged Bigger Room, and hits the monitor.
Metal Man (GM): It blinks on, shorting out a little, before showing stuff as usual.
Dragoshi: "Mainly...?" *Follows.*
Snake: "We're unsure where Ganondorf went. Bowser's also missing. And apparently, they kidnapped Luigi."
Kamui: *sits there, blinking a few times wondering what he should be doing right now. He watches Snake walk off, raising an eyebrow at what he said last.*
Snake: "Metal Man didn't come to the match which was scheduled to happen... yes, that's right. Giovanni struck just as a match was about to start. So now, we have to figure out what's going on. What do you think we should focus on first? Thankfully, the warp room escaped unharmed..."
Kamui: *raises hand.* "Finding Luigi?"
Snake: *Mutters.* "Though there's no table to land on anymore..."
Aribar: "Ganondorf, Bowser, Giovanni... Hm."
Aribar: "Are Mario, Link, and Zelda busy?"
Snake: "Interesting you should mention that. He was last seen walking in..." He pokes the monitor. "...Green Greens? They are at the moment. That maniac knew exactly when they were scheduled to be on break."
Dragoshi: "How annoying."
Aribar: "Hm. So it looks like we've no one to turn to for help.."
Snake: "They're coming, by next mission they'll be here, but right now, it's me, you, Master Hand, and a handful of very scared and confused people. Luckily defenses are back up, you stomped that Nidoking good enough to save the Stadium. But we could use more defenses too, if you think that's important. Or we could go and look for help."
Dragoshi: "Well, at least we did that. Help is always good..."
Metal Man (GM): Dan walks in. He looks... confused.
Dan: "I was watching that Lakitu, but then he up and escaped through some form of... teleportation!"
Aribar glances over to Dan.* "Welcome back... Oh, great."
Dan: "It was like one of our teleporters, too... just with a white glow for some reason."
Snake: "All right, add that to the list. Which is..."
Kamui: *looks over towards Dan, raising an eyebrow.* "..." o_o; "That can't be good."
Metal Man (GM): He types on the keyboard to the monitor.
Dragoshi: "Now someone's just trying to add insult to insult to insult to injury."
Metal Man (GM): Secure HQ Defenses, Obtain Allies, Find Luigi, Find Metal Man, Find Ganondorf, Find Bowser, Find Lakitu.
Aribar: "Nice little list... Hrm."
Snake: "A mighty lot of objectives, but you guys are the Questers."
Aribar: "I think I might have some suggestions.."
Kamui: "Defenses would be a good thing to work up first."
Dragoshi: "I suppose. Though, we have rusted quite a bit over the past 5 years..."
Aribar tries to think back to his time spent during the five year gap... He specifically made his home in Hyrule during that time. The elf tries to remember if the egg robos from the elf's darker days still roamed about the Kokiri Forest.*
Snake: "Defenses cost money though... we don't have much on us. If you're smart enough, you could probably get some from the Federation. Alternatively, Professor Oak may know something. The old ruins may have some, but you'd probably have to repair those... oh, and there's the Cornerians if you like running around a lot."
Metal Man (GM): Aribar remembers... they're all probably gone by now.
Dragoshi: "Quite. But, we could search for allies who would then help us improve on our defenses, therefore killing two birds with one stone... Or killing one, and then maiming the other."
Metal Man (GM): The Void's reset thing probably eliminated them. However... Aribar thinks more about Eggrobos. Eggman had many factories for such.
Aribar: "I believe I know how to knock down the first objective."
Snake: "And that is???"
Aribar: "I know that Eggman had a ton of factories used to produce his robots. They aren't the most sturdily built, but they're better than nothing. If we can find an abandoned factory, we can 'acquire' it for our own use."
Metal Man (GM): The group hears a tank revving up in the distance. Hm. As if you hadn't suffered enough today.
Snake: "Right... there's a list here... what's that noise?"
Dragoshi: "What the-..."
Aribar blinks several times... And slowly looks towards the direction of the noise.*
Kamui: *picks his head up, then looks to same direction Aribar was looking as well.* o_o
Dragoshi: "Did someone come by to hit us with a tank?" .oO(Hopefully, one that doesn't jump, so that it'll be an easier target. >_>)
Metal Man (GM): The Questers look. There's a tank of some sorts in the distance, just a bit away from where the old HQ was.
ChancÃ©: "... ... Maybe it is an ally?"
Kamui: "One can hope."
Dragoshi: "...It damn well better be. We've dealt with enough crap for one day."
Snake: "You guys check it out, I'll have a list of locations for you to look for Eggman bases. Unless Aribar has one in mind."
Panzer hummed as she tweaked and fine-tuned the engine, seeming to finally agree with the purr it made, picking her helmet up off the ground, putting it on and climbing into it. She pulled the rest of the canvas off and switched gears, taking hold of the dual handles and easing it forward, towards them.
Aribar squints, looking towards the tank...* "I can't tell if it's friend or foe. A base? No, none I can think of."
Metal Man (GM): The tank is now moving towards the Questers. It looks brand new, but is of a very old design.
Kamui: *heads in the direction of the machine, his arms remaining at his sides.* "... A tank."
Aribar: "I suppose we're about to find out..." *The elf tenses, expecting to hear the blast of a cannon.*
Dragoshi: "Huh. Interesting." *Dragoshi just stands there, arms crossed, waiting.*
Metal Man (GM): Snake stares at it.
Snake: "What's a tank like that doing out here?"
Dragoshi: "I don't know..."
Metal Man (GM): The tank finally comes in range.
Dragoshi: "Though I am just as curious about it as you are."
Metal Man (GM): It's a rather old model tank, but it's in like-new condition. Well. It's shiny, at least.
Panzer happens to test the turret out, not really looking where she's going, leaving the gears forward. She raises the barrel, then looks up, getting closet to... people? She grumbled, not too happy. She stops the tank in front of them, leaving the engine to run and warm up. She gets herself out of her seat, standing, appearing ha;fway out of the copula. "The hell are you freaks?"
Snake: "While we're standing here... I have a map of several locations in Eggman's home universe, which we can warp to..."
ChancÃ©: "Well, the person cares for the thing."
Snake: "Scrap Brain, Final Egg, Metropolis Zone, and... hmmm... there's a wreck of something called a 'Wing Fortress' over in this ocean area."
ChancÃ©: "It is often polite for someone with the tank to introduce themselves first."
Kamui: "..." *pulls to a stop, looking back to the others and raises an eyebrow. He then looks over to Panzer, blinking once.* "The hell are you freaks?"
Snake: "And... hello." He turns to Panzer. "I should be asking you that question. Where'd you get that tank, and what's your intent of being here?" Snake, obviously, has never seen the history reels.
Aribar looks up at the tank driver.* "Er, greetings... Wait a tick.."
Metal Man (GM): And the one who knows them, SIMBER, isn't functioning so well with a giant chunk off his cylinder.
Panzer looks at Chance "I believe it is customary for you to identify yourselves before I run your ass over. And I really don't feel like cleaning the treads."
Snake: "Just what we need... another foe." *He shakes his head.* "This is... the Quester Headquarters you're looking at, and you're looking at Questers. Whoever you are."
ChancÃ©: "Point. We are the Questers... erm... well, the leftovers from an attack."
Aribar: "At the moment that sounds like a fine reason for introducing ourselves. Aribar Hunter."
Snake: "They call me... Snake."
Kamui doesn't answer, just staring at the tank driver.* "..."
ChancÃ©: "Hmm, ChancÃ© is the name I go by."
Panzer lifts a brow rather curiously, climbing all the way out to stand on top ontop of the turret. "Well. Damn. You guys have gotten your asses kicked that... That bad since I left?" She laughs. "I am known as Panzer, and this is my tank. I'm glad you didn't run all your grubby paws on it."
Dragoshi: "In any case, as far as names go... I am Dragoshi. Dragoshi Leucrocuta Helldusk. Also, I'll be sure to make note of that." *Pulls out notepad, writes down something.*
Snake: "Well, if you're not in the mood for harming us..." *He mumbles.* "There is a matter of getting some defenses for this base. Since you suggested it, Aribar, have an idea of which base of those I listed you guys should go to?"
Aribar blinks, realization slowly dawning on his face.* "Wait... Panzer? The reploid who was with us during the start of the Questers?!"
Snake: "You're the expert on that Egg Man. Until recently I thought he was some sort of crazed egg salesman."
Dragoshi: "..." *Facepalms.*
ChancÃ©: "... What?! do you live under a rock?"
Snake: "No... a box."
ChancÃ©: "No, wait... You live under a box."
Panzer looks casually at the base. She looks down at Ari. "Yes. The same. Ari, missed you... Not really." She chuckled.
Kamui: looks over to Snake, raising an eyebrow.* "How's the rent?"
Snake: "And you must remember, my world wasn't attached to yours until recently. Something about physics I don't have the time to explain."
Aribar: "Eheheh... It's been so long... Didn't recognize you."
Snake: "The rent's cheap, as long as you guys decide a course of action sometime soon."
ChancÃ©: "This is the Panzer the history logs mention? Interesting."
Metal Man (GM): He makes a motion to hurry up and points again at the screen.
Panzer: "The same could be said about you. Been too many years." She looks over at Chance again. "History logs? Ari, explain."
Snake: "We're lucky the blue phantom isn't here to haunt us with history lectures..."
Kamui: "Uh, how about we go after Lakitu?"
Snake: "Great, except we don't even know what kind of teleporter sent him away. So we have no leads as of yet."
Dragoshi: "I say we check out the Wing Fortress... Or maybe the Final Egg. Either or."
Snake: "Unless you have an insight of some kind."
ChancÃ©: "Kamui, we decided on defence, we are waiting on Aribar for now."
Aribar: "Time has treated you well in our history books; you're pretty much a famous Quester, despite not being here for many years."
Panzer lifts a brow once more.
Snake: "Final Egg's in a jungle and sorta messy, while the Wing Fortress is an old wreck of some kind. I hear its got some nice tech though."
Panzer: "Really now? I figured if Wolf and Klumsy had their ways, I'd have been left in that Goddamned fortress forever and a day." She looks at Snake. "You... Snake. You look military. Status report."
Dragoshi: "I like the sound of the Wing Fortess... What say you, Ari?" *He would then poke the one-armed mage.*
Snake: "West side of HQ destroyed by missiles during a staff break period. Several potential suspects escaped."
Nick_Caligo (GM): Dragoshi pokes him right in the stump, causing terrible, shooting phantom pains in his non-existant right hand.
Kamui: *leans against the wall, then raises his hand.* "I'll go with wing fortress."
Snake: "Reminds me..." He flips through his own dex. "... ...You remember that evidence we got?"
Panzer looks down, more or less at Drag and Kamui. "Like little duckies following their mother." She shook her head. "Reminds me of that time ..." Blah blah blah. >>;
ChancÃ©: .oO(at least he knows how to work it now..)
Dragoshi: "Let me guess."
Aribar: "Gah! Pain, pain, pain.." *Bats Dragoshi's hand away.* "No poking my mageliness! Ow... In any case, we should definitely secure the Stadium before doing anything else. As to which Eggman place to go to..."
Dragoshi: "Someone destroyed it?"
Snake: "That explosion at the dex computer was precision-aimed to destroy it and the recent data involving it."
Snake: "Whoever did it didn't want to destroy HQ. They just... tricked us into thinking that."
ChancÃ©: "This is more complacated than a badly written mario fanfiction."
Dragoshi: "In its own way."
Kamui nods his head to ChancÃ©.
Snake: "This also means we must still be being watch... but..." *He shakes his head.* "Wing Fortress, Aribar?"
Panzer: "You still want to defend a shell of a building?" She sighs, sitting on the tank. "Want me to stay here and guard it for you or something? I have nothing better to do. I just randomly turned up or something."
Dragoshi: "No. Seriously?"
Aribar: "It sounds good to me." *Said that to Snake.*
Kamui: *looks over to Panzer.* "We may need to borrow some extra fire power... Panzer was it?"
Aribar: "Heh... Could do that, Panzer. Or you can head over to Bowser's castle and use your tank to renovate it a bit."
ChancÃ©: "Nice work... Hmm--I like Ari's idea..."
Dragoshi: "...Does he even still have a castle?"
Snake: "Ok, then... let's hope this works."
Aribar: "If he does, I would imagine soon he won't. Seriously, though, I would imagine that he has to have a base of operations."
Aribar hrms and wonders about something. He turns on his Smash Dex and goes to check to see if it has communications, or if those were disabled during the attack.*
Panzer rolls her eyes, growling. She cralws into her tank and comes back out, a sniper rifle on her back. "What ever. Leave someone here with me to keep me company at least. Someone that can bring me up to speed on this bullshit."
ChancÃ©: "Friendly neighborhood snake can do it."
Metal Man (GM): He presses a button, and a warp appears.
Snake: "Oh, you want company, eh?" He chuckles. "Whatever you say."
Metal Man (GM): He kicks the holo-cylinder. SIMBER appears.
Dragoshi: "Right. Anyway..." *Dragoshi just heads on over to the warp.*
SIMBER: "What? Huh? Daisy, daisy, mushroom, badger? ...Oh dear. A corner of HQ has exploded yet again."
ChancÃ©: "Also panzer if you can fix SIMBER..."
ChancÃ© heads into the warp...
SIMBER: "Hm. I must be seeing things. A long dead Quester is staring me in the face."
Snake: "No, that one's real."
SIMBER: "And the Kuja next to her???"
Aribar: "Probably fake."
Snake: "I guess that explosion did do some damage."
Metal Man (GM): *WARP!* *WARP!*
Aribar glances next to Panzer just to make sure the mage god hasn't shown up before heading into the warp.*
SIMBER: "Uh... er... anyway... you." The holographic man, who looks kind of like a general himself, points at Panzer. "You... could help them too."
Snake: "Of course she could, but perhaps she doesn't want to. I don't really care; I just want to be able to rest without HQ exploding."
Metal Man (GM): *WARP!* The warp's still open. Communications on the dexes are back up. Scanning remains off. *WARP *WARP!* The Questers all appear atop... a very, very tall hill. A blue hill, in fact... it's stony. They would see many such hills in the distance... and clouds below them. And, a little distance ahead, is a massive, brown ship, which looks like the front of it was torn off of it and crashed a ways separate.
Deloth: "...Talk about your fixer-uppers."
Metal Man (GM): But they gotta get there first... and the only way across a chasm ahead is a treacherous looking loop-de-loop which has a rocky, cracked section in the ground leading up to it.
Dragoshi: "Huh... Is that the Wing Fortress?"
Aribar: "Which reminds me that we could have quickly taken out another bird with one stone."
Metal Man (GM): The questers can't quite go through it with that there, as it blocks the way down after they would do the loop, either.
Kamui: *blinks a few times, then creacks his knuckles softly wishing he had bought a weapon before.* "..."
Dragoshi: "Howso, Ari?"
Aribar: "Just tested our dexes; their communications appear to be working. We could contact that Galactic Federation like Snake said and try to get an ally out of them. Wouldn't take long. Should we do so?"
Metal Man (GM): This is, presumably, the Wing Fortress, but no one can be sure.
Dragoshi: "I guess."
Oceanblaze (Self-GM): A ball of energy appears from a portal. Energy jumps around all about as time and space seem to fold to it. A voice is heard within.
Vanessa: (Com) "Got it! They were in warp. Temporal Tag established. Now preparing temporal shift to outer plane. Communication will shut down in 10 seconds. Good luck."
Oceanblaze (Self-GM): The ball hits the ground and touches down. Aiden's armor making a loud 'ding'. A white haired youth is seen standing there turns to face the Questers.
Metal Man (GM): It could be another massive ship, from this distance.
Deloth: "Er... hiya."
Dragoshi: "Then we could deal with the Wing Fortre-... Hello there, spontaneously appearing person."
Metal Man (GM): It also appears today is new person day, as the second new person of the day is now standing before the Questers.
Aribar: "Err... Greetings."
Kamui: *looks over to the new person, raising an eyebrow.* "o_o?"
Metal Man (GM): The loop-de-loop, in detail: Goes up, around, and then straight down. The straight down part is blocked by a rock formation that looks crumbly.
???: "Finally was cleared to get here." He looks around. "This doesnt appear to be there HQ." He looks to them all and salutes. "Hello."
Metal Man (GM): Aiden would see out here are hills, pits, chasms, wilderness, small trees, and a huge ship on the horizon.
Aribar: "Either you're the friendliest assassin I've ever seen, or you have a bit of a teleportation problem. In any case, Aribar Hunter, Quester, at your service."
Deloth: "Now, mind explaining who YOU are?"
Metal Man (GM): While the group is standing there, the loop-de-loop leads down to a small cul-de-sac/depression in the next hill, and then there's a teeter-totter with a weird glowing ball on one side. A weird ball with EYES. What kind of maniac puts EYES on pulsating red-and-yellow orbs?
???: "Greetings Questers. I've been brought here to this particular random instances of time to assist you in your ventures. I am Aiden. Sent here after careful negotiations between the Time Knights, Galatic Federation, and the Quester higher-ups."
Metal Man (GM): There's also a turquise rock formation to everyone's left.
Aribar: "Err... Hi!" *The elf nervously says this while wondering if he's cast a bit of bad time magic..*
Kamui: *was looking aroung at the area around, not really paying much attention to the others as he looks at the odd surroundings.*
Metal Man (GM): Speaking of time... An ominous counter is in the upper left corner. It appears to be increasing as the group sits around, talking.
Dex: "This world has a strange field which kills all who stand around in one place too long. You may wish to move soon."
Kamui: *looks at the little timer, then begins running along. He makes his way along the loop-de-loop and heads for the crumbling floor.*
Aribar blinks and looks up at the timer.* "I have a feeling I will die many, many, many times."
Deloth: "...Not one good day..." *starts running down the loop-de-loop as well.*
Metal Man (GM): Aribar and Deloth are speeding towards the crumbly rock.
Deloth: *Oh, crap, JUMP!*
Metal Man (GM): Deloth jumps. The strange magic of the realm causes him to become a spinning ball while he's jumping. He crashes through the crumbly stuff and down the rest of the way. This also allows Kamui through.
Aiden: "I was supposed to meet you this mourning. However there was a mission that involved stopping one Michael Jackson from building a theme park an irrelevent number of years ago. In any event we were able to place a tag in this plane when you landed." He jumps as he runs explaining how he got there.
Metal Man (GM): Now both are hurtling down the loop downwards.
Kamui: *continues running, going down along the loop.*
Deloth keeps running, seeing as a sudden stop could be very hazardous to his health...
Metal Man (GM): Sooner or later, all of the group wind up at the teeter-totter, at the base of a tall cliff. The orange ball holding down the right side glares at them.
Aribar sees Deloth actually make it across... He decides the jump can't be that bad and tries running down and jumping across.
Metal Man (GM): Those who were stopped are dragged along by the magic of the realm.
Kamui: *jumps and lands to the ground one one hand and knee before standing to his feet and dusts himself off.* "Well, that was wild..."
Aiden takes a brief moment to breath "And with that tag placed I was sent here to my surprise."
Deloth tries to screech to a halt before smashing into the side of the teeter-totter.
Metal Man (GM): The teeter totter looks like you could jump on it.
Deloth: *Well, too much momentum for that... jump again!*
Metal Man (GM): The weird orange ball flies upwards.
Kamui: *waves.* "Bye bye."
Aribar: "... Why don't we just let Deloth do all of this for us?"
Metal Man (GM): Deloth now weighs down the teeter-totter... The ball is flying down now, and towards Deloth. If he stands where he is on the teeter-totter, it'll smack him.
Deloth runs over to the other side of the teeter-totter.
Aribar: "... That doesn't seem very... Logical."
Metal Man (GM): *BOING!* Deloth flies upwards to the top, as the ball lands where he was just standing. He better not continue any further without the others, though-- That'd crush them against the wall.
Kamui: *blinks, then watches Deloth fly in to the air.* "Well, that works."
Metal Man (GM): The ball is now on the left side.
Kamui: "I GOT IT!" *He jumps up and falls towards the opposite end.*
Aiden: "This area seems to apply spacial displacement..." *he takes a moment for he jumps forward then leaps.*
Aribar decides to go with them!
Metal Man (GM): That ball flies extremely high. It's now falling towards everyone on the teeter-totter.
Aribar: "... I hope we aren't sent into orbit." *Heads to the other side of the totterteeter.*
Kamui: *looks at the sky, slowly going to the other end of the teetertotter.* "This is gonna be a hoot."
Metal Man (GM): Aiden stands there, the ball's shadow appearing on his head...
Kamui: *reaches over and tries to pull Aiden out of the way.*
Metal Man (GM): Kamui grabs Aiden in time. *BOING!* The people on the teeter-totter fly far higher than Deloth... so high, in fact, each of them grab 5 rings. Now all of you are atop a ridge.
Aribar grabs onto them and keeps them on his arm... He lands near Del.*
Metal Man (GM): There is a really high jump, but a chance of falling, to reach the top of a nearby hill. A secret route, which can be looked for. And any of the Questers can drop down onto a spring for an easy route.
Aiden: *Looks for the path.*
Deloth: *Lesson 1: always take the easy route first. Also looks for the path!!*
Aiden: "There is a cave straight ahead. We only need a slight jump to progress."
Aribar blinks and looks up there...* "Huh. Better eyesight than me. I've missed it.*
Deloth steps back a bit, then runs and jumps towards the cave.
Metal Man (GM): Deloth reaches the cave.
Aribar follows trogdor!*
Aiden makes two quick jumps.
Dragoshi: *And, Dragoshi follows the time... Knight? Was that it?*
Metal Man (GM): Aiden and Aribar cross. With all those people in the cave, it'd be easy for Kamui to see where the hidden path is.
Aiden: "So exactly what are you all looking for here? I wasn't given for the current situation."
Dragoshi: "Stuff to improve upon our HQ's defenses."
Metal Man (GM): The cave leads to a strange platform attached to a long pole. It's like an overhead trolley car.
Deloth: *hops on. He checks if it is a mystical magical rollercoaster ride.*
Metal Man (GM): Yes. In fact, if the others don't hop on quickly, it'll take off without them!
Kamui: *jumps on to the platform next.*
Metal Man (GM): As it's weight-controlled. Once anyone steps on it, it begins descending.
Dragoshi: *Does so if he already hasn't.*
Metal Man (GM): It'sa getting away from the others. They better hurry, as the gap between them and the back of the screen is decreasing...
Aribar rushes over and falls onto the platform.
Aiden looks at his arm for a moment and gazes into a holo screen "Another explosion. I see. Very well." He points to the platform. "Shall we continue?" He says heading toward it.
Metal Man (GM): Everyone gets on it. It's now heading towards a platform on yet another hill...
Aiden rests his hands against two of the three swords at his waist.
Metal Man (GM): The Questers can see more details of the ship in the distance. Shiny, rust-spotted, bent up thing. Resembles an ancient ship design. The elevator-like platform stops... Right next to the ground.
Deloth: "Wow. That's one busted-up piece of junk."
Kamui: *looks out towards the distance and climbs off and looks around.*
Deloth hops off.
Dragoshi: *Gets off.*
Metal Man (GM): The platform falls off.
Aribar: *Tries to jump up to the others!*
Metal Man (GM): As Aiden and Aribar deal with the falling platform... the others see their own obstacle ahead: A magma pit, and a giant, loch-ness like robot sitting in it.
Deloth: *He makes sure it isn't friendly first.*
Metal Man (GM): Its body is the only way across, but it has a tall neck. And atop that neck is a head which can, apparently, shoot lava.
Aribar tries to at least jump up even to the others... The elf finds his only jump takes him up a bit higher than usual, but even if he doesn't reach them, he casts a bit of wind magic to allow him to hover over.*
Kamui: "Um..." *he blinks, looking at the obstacle.*
Metal Man (GM): Aribar leaps back up from near-doom.
Deloth chucks a Flame Sting at the head of Nessie over there.
Metal Man (GM): It shoots a fireball at Deloth.
ChancÃ©: "and Deloth tries attacking before talking." @_@
Metal Man (GM): The fireball hits the flame sting. The sting goes through the fireball. The thing's head is blown off.
Dragoshi: "...Nice one."
Aiden follows Aribar jumping several times.
Metal Man (GM): It is now only a platform. The group can get across easily.
ChancÃ©: "Well... it worked."
Aiden: *Tries to climb again.* >.>
Metal Man (GM): Aiden barely gets up as well.
ChancÃ© gets across.
Dragoshi: *Carefully walks along the platform.*
Metal Man (GM): The group reaches the new obstacle: they can do a jump to go on a higher path, or hop into a cave beneath it.
Kamui: *jumps on to the platform, then jumps to the otherside of the lava pit.*
Aribar catches up with the others, panting.*
Aribar: "Why have I never cast a permanent flying spell on myself?"
Kamui: "I'm taking the higher path." *He tries to jump for the higher path.*
Aiden goes to catch up with the others. "One path. This space time displacement won't allow us to separate."
Metal Man (GM): Kamui leaps into the wall, and bounces back into the magma. He drops any rings he had around.
ChancÃ© supresses a giggle.
Metal Man (GM): In the magma.
Kamui: "OUCH!" *Jumps up and out of the magma.*
ChancÃ©: .oO(Silly Newbies... )
Metal Man (GM): He's back with the group now.
Dragoshi: "...I say one of us carries Kamui, then jumps up onto the higher path."
Metal Man (GM): There's magma/lava immediately below, but not in, the cave ahead.
Aribar: "That looked painful to the pocketbook and your health.."
Aiden: "The path above or the bath under it?"
ChancÃ©: "The higer path sounds good... There may be lava below."
Aribar: "So, we're all agreed with the upper path? Okay."
Aiden: "Agreed. On three?"
Kamui: *rubs the place where he was toasted.* "I can try."
Aiden sees as once person jumping on their own seems to put others at risk.
Metal Man (GM): It looks like a jump across then.
Aribar gets ready for a big jump up the cliff.*
Aiden: "Ok then. On three." Pauses for a moment. "Three!"
Aiden is triple jumping if necessary.
Aribar: "..." *Hesitates due to the lack of a one and a two, then jumps.*
Metal Man (GM): ChancÃ©'ll need a second jump. Kamui bounces off the wall and receives more damage.
Dragoshi: *And, a Dragoshi joins in. After waiting for Kamui to get on his back.* :/
Kamui: *climbs on to Dragoshi's back.* "Don't say anything..." -_-
Aiden the time knight's jumps look like he simply bursts through the air.
Metal Man (GM): ChancÃ© makes it across.
Dragoshi: *Good thing Drag's half yoshi. :p In any case, Dragoshi would then jump up to where the others are!*
Metal Man (GM): Dragoshi gets across with Kamui. Now the group is on the high road. Here, they see a weird sight:
Kamui: *drops down to the higher ground now off of Dragoshi's back.* "Thanks."
Metal Man (GM): Blocking your path is a top-heavy orb with eyes... with legs... and a really nasty spike-drill atop its head. It walks back and forth... and glares at the Questers.
Dragoshi: "No prob..."
ChancÃ©: "... it's a walking ball bearing?"
Aiden: "I currently lack an official 'dex' to identify this creature. What is it?" His hand reaches to a sword on his left and right side.
Aribar: "Eh..." *Pulls out his own dex and scans it.*
Dex: "Scanning offline."
Metal Man (GM): It doesn't look terribly sturdy...
Aribar: "It is an offline. A dangerous foe." *Starts charging up some ice magic.*
Deloth: "You need some better jokes desperately, Ari." *flicks another Flame Sting at the evil ball.*
Aiden: "Interesting joke.." He crouches down slightly looking for away around the creature not sure if where its standing is necessarily the only way to go.
Metal Man (GM): *BLAM!* It explodes. A straight run to the edge of this hill awaits.
Aribar: "Bah! Waited too long.." *Unleashes the Hail spell behind them.*
ChancÃ© runs after the others.
Aribar tiredly trudges on!*
Aiden: "Or that can work. Maybe an irrelevent foe appears more like it." His hands grip releases his right sword as he proceeds forward with his hand against his left one. So many swords. o.0
Metal Man (GM): The group reaches the edge... another foe... this one's more intelligent. A floating orb surrounded by fireballs. It chucks one at Aiden.
Kamui: *goes after the others.*
ChancÃ© goes for a potion.
Aiden: "It appears you used that ice spell too quickly!" *Attempts to dodge.*
Dragoshi: "...Interesting enemy, but... I have no time for this." *Dragoshi starts making that good 'ol disgusting noise and then spits out sum acids at the enemy machine.*
ChancÃ© gulps down the red potion.
Metal Man (GM): *Blam.* Some damage to Aiden, who'd drop any rings he got. Then the robot would explode from ChancÃ©'s attack.
Aiden doesn't move faster and is pelted by a blast. He grunts a little crossing his arms as it hits him. He however shakes it off and attempts to collect those rings. >.>
Metal Man (GM): *BLAM!* Another elevator-platform down awaits.
Aribar: "Huzzah for not saving my spells for when they're needed... Apologies." *Quickly heads onto the elevator.*
Deloth jumps on again. He looks at the counter.
Metal Man (GM): Azure regains 3. The counter is getting high.
Kamui: *jumps on to the platform.*
Metal Man (GM): The platform begins sliding down... everyone else better get aboard.
ChancÃ© heads onto the platform.
Aiden after collecting coins dashes for the platform.
Dragoshi: *Gets aboard the platform.*
Metal Man (GM): The rest get aboard. It slides down, then falls a bit, and they're finally on the same hill with the Wing Fortress.
Deloth: "All right!"
Aiden looks around quickly.
Aribar quickly jumps off and onto the hill, having learned his lesson.
Metal Man (GM): The otuside is mostly devoid of anything useful. There's three doors, all next to one another, and corroded shut.
Kamui: *walks over towards the Wing Fortress, looking over the three doors.*
Aiden: "Those doors havent been open in a long time it seems."
Deloth calmly walks over to the left door and gives it a hard kick.
Metal Man (GM): They're old, and have a styled 'EG' logo on them. *CRASH!* It falls off, all corroded. The Questers see the inside... a very, very complex room. Controls everywhere. This thing was a monstrosity to operate. Hundreds of individual switches for jets, propellers, and wings...
ChancÃ©: "No wonder it crashed..."
Metal Man (GM): Most importantly, in this wide room there's a pile of debris blocking the way down.
Aiden walks inside looking around. "No one could hit the right buttons in time?"
Metal Man (GM): Where the good stuff probably is.
Aribar glances into the Wing Fortress.* "We came here to find a way to defend the stadium... I think we might be in over our heads."
Metal Man (GM): The portholes in here are old and cracked with age.
Deloth: "Digging time. Anybody bring shovels?"
Kamui: *looks at all the controls, scratching the top of his head lightly.* "Erm... "Nope."
Kamui: *tries to flip a few switches.*
Metal Man (GM): Nothing.
Deloth: *Yeahhhh... not even gonna try that.*
Deloth starts trying to dig through the debris.
Metal Man (GM): Eggman's stuff is all built weird.
Dragoshi: *I think Drag'll try and do so...*
Metal Man (GM): Click, click, snork. Beep. Nothing.
Dragoshi: "Hey. Could one of you guys try to assist me with this?"
Aiden makes such an attempt.
ChancÃ© tries for a laugh.
Aribar heads on over to the pile of junk.* "Sorry, I'm terrible with computers."
Metal Man (GM): Click. Click. Snap. Click. Click click. Click Bzt. Click.
Aiden: "This system is way too customized.."
Metal Man (GM): Nothing. Lots of button and switch-flipping. Deloth gets his hand stuck in the debris.
ChancÃ©: "Why not just blow up the debris?"
Dragoshi: "Hey, Del. You any good with computers?"
Kamui: "Because we don't want to damage anything we can salvage."
Deloth: "Because that would potentially blow up EVERYTHING--no." *tries to jerk his hand free.*
Aribar tries to help Del.*
Metal Man (GM): Aribar becomes stuck in the debris.
Aribar: "Gah! Help! Elf eating debris!"
Metal Man (GM): It's almost like it sinks a little every time someone pulls on it.
Aribar flails about in the pile.*
Metal Man (GM): Deloth rips his arm out, single-handedly cleaing a way through the debris and freeing Aribar.
Deloth: "THAT'S better."
Kamui: "... Well, that works."
Dragoshi: *Tries once again to reactivate this danged fortress...*
ChancÃ©: "Hmm, fast, quick and less mess."
Metal Man (GM): *Click.* *Click.* *Snork.* Nothing.
Dragoshi: *Yes, I have no luck, no luck today.*
ChancÃ©: "Shall we continue?"
Aribar: "Ooh, free... Oh, wait." *Laws of gravity kick in, he falls.*
Aiden: *tries again as well one last time.* "One moment."
Kamui: "Lemme give it a trie..."
Dragoshi: "Let me just try this one last time, then I'll follow."
Deloth heads downwards.
ChancÃ© heads down.
Metal Man (GM): Nothing except for a single beep.
Kamui: *walks over and tries to do something with the machine.*
Aiden: "This relic wont start again by our hands. We should keep going."
Metal Man (GM): Kamui's luck prevents him from damaging it, but it won't do anything else but beep once now. Downstairs seems to have lit up some, though.
Kamui: *goes after Aiden.*
Metal Man (GM): Down below is the heart of the ship, which is rather small for a ship this large.
Metal Man (GM): A big table and controls everywhere. These must control the laser guns.
Aribar gets up from the ground and looks about..
Metal Man (GM): The lights flicker. It's sort of dark down here.
Aiden: "What do you need from this place to increase your bases defenses?"
Metal Man (GM): There's a large computer here, too.
Deloth: "Anything we can get, I assume."
Metal Man (GM): There's a big switch for backup power.
Aribar: "Practically anything would help right now. Our base was halfway exploded by a missile."
Metal Man (GM): Alternatively, there's a path ahead. The bridge got torn off, but it's still in the right direction.
Kamui: *Nods his head, looking around the area.* "I'm not touching anything technological again unless I know how to use it."
Dragoshi: "'Sides, this place is apparently high tech."
Metal Man (GM): The table has yet more controls someone can fiddle with. Someone could also look out the portholes--one side of them sees only dirt, the other sees clouds.
Aribar looks for any controls that actually have labels.*
ChancÃ©: "Hmm, turn on the computer, but sever the main supply cable first."
Metal Man (GM): Labels indeed.
ChancÃ©: "That way if we turn it off again, it can;t do anything.."
Metal Man: "Q1.4827623. Thrust 52A. TRIM LOC 0.23. TUR. 2."
Metal Man (GM): Considering the Questers have been flipping things like these for the last 5 minutes without any action, they're unpowered.
Aribar: "I leave the choice up to you guys."
Aiden: "This ship wasn't on..so I doubt it would become active... at a different part..." *Looks around more.*
Metal Man (GM): The hallway back is totally dark.
ChancÃ© flicks the computer switch.
Metal Man (GM): Sirens go off.
ChancÃ© flicks it off.
Kamui: *heads further back in the ship, his arms remaining at his sides.*
Metal Man (GM): It won't budge. 'DEFENSES ACTIVATED'
Aiden: "..." *Covers his ears.*
Aribar jumps a bit..*
ChancÃ© kicks himself.
Metal Man (GM): Four turrets pop out of the ceiling and lock onto Chance.
Aribar: "... You, jumping out the windows. Now!"
Metal Man (GM): They're out to cop a laser in his head.
Aiden pulls out fox blaster and starts shooting at each of the four turrets.
Aribar dashes after Kamui, not sticking around for laser-filled death.*
ChancÃ© gets out the mirror of twilight.
Metal Man (GM): *ZAP ZAP *Absorb.* *ZAP.* 3 hits, 1 absorbed.
Metal Man (GM): One turret is knocked offline. The other three fire at Aiden.
ChancÃ© uses the mirror on one of the three.
Metal Man (GM): I guess these are some pretty good turrets!!! ChancÃ© knocks one offline after it shoots at Aiden.
Dragoshi: *Dragoshi would then assist by trying to Gravity Well the three remaining turrets!*
Metal Man (GM): They don't have enough energy to re-orient themselves after a single hit, apparently. The other two are dead. The computer runs out of power. The sirens slow down and then go silent. The lights turn to an amber emergency light color.
ChancÃ©: "Now I remember why I have not learned to use a computer.."
Aiden raises his blades and goes to rapidly block them with his words (Block!)
Metal Man (GM): Apparently, the defenses here were actually good.
ChancÃ©: "Though BSOF were a lot less literal."
Metal Man (GM): Still are, even. *ZAP *ZAP *Miss.* More damage to Aiden.
ChancÃ© heads down the hall where the others went.
Metal Man (GM): Meanwhile... Kamui and Aribar bump into a room with two TV monitors. Each has the image of a ring and '10' on it.
Kamui: *looks at the TV monitors, not even bothering to touch them.* "..."
Deloth walks in with the others after the laser activity calms down.
Aribar glances down at the rings on his arms and up to the monitors.* "... This place is weird."
Metal Man (GM): Anyway. That test of the emergency 'Shoot everyone inside' system was success.
Metal Man (GM): Deloth hears Aribar and Kamui talking in the distance. They're in a room just a little back.
Aribar looks about the room for more instant death causing articles.*
Metal Man (GM): Nothing in the back room.
Deloth slaps a piece of electrical tape on the computer to mark it and walks over to Ari and Kamui.
Metal Man (GM): The way further back's blocked by a mountain of debris.
Aribar: "Nothing more here, unless you want to dig through an even bigger pile of junk. There are these... Monitors, which I assume contain 10 rings."
Metal Man (GM): Deloth gets there.
Deloth: "...So how do you open one?"
Aribar: "I would imagine with pain-inflicting techniques."
Kamui: *heads towards the bridge.*
Deloth: "Good point." *Fire Twist towards one of the monitors.*
Metal Man (GM): 10 rings to Deloth. Kamui begins going to the bridge. Along the way, he'd see several gun ports... guns which point outside are mounted here.
Aribar awaits for the others to catch up a bit before following Kamui.
Metal Man (GM): Lots of them. There's lots of shiny switches for them here, too. Up ahead is an open space on a hill.
Deloth: "All right!" *follows Ari and Kamui towards the bridge.*
Kamui: *pulls to a stop, looking at one gun port.*
Aribar: "Plenty of guns here... Too bad we don't have anyone to bring them back to the Stadium or man them."
Deloth slaps some tape on the guns anyways. There could be a way to salvage them.
Metal Man (GM): The group makes it outside. Three things await them: A chicken robot in a weird gun emplacement. A malfunctioning belt apparatus. And a broken launching device. The chicken robot activates and aims at the group.
Aribar: "... Why did Eggman create a chicken robot?"
Kamui: "Robot chicken..." *he blinks, then gets ready for trouble.*
Aiden: "Eggman was known for creating many things. Hes revered for originality if anything."
Metal Man (GM): It answers the question by firing an egg projectile at Aribar's face.
Deloth Fox Illusions towards it, hoping to do some damage before it can fire.
Metal Man (GM): Deloth blows up the chicken.
Aribar takes a step to the side.*
Metal Man (GM): Chicken vs. Egg solved: The chicken came first, but was destroyed by Deloth Fox illusioning into it. ChancÃ© joins the others, as Aribar dodges the egg. Now there is just a damaged belt, a weird L-shaped person-launcher, and a gap to another hill with the bridge on it.
Kamui: *walks over to the launcher, looking it over.*
Deloth looks at the belt apparatus.
Metal Man (GM): Some wires are cut. It's no good as-is. The belt thing must have been a part of the ship once. Now it's uselessly spinning. One spinner continuously spins the belt. The other thing that was supposed to receive the other side of the belt is gone.
Aribar: "Hrm.." *The elf stands back a bit and glances over the Wing Fortress. He looks for more platforms that lead inside.*
Metal Man (GM): No, only the launcher could carry people across. The part the group surveyed was mostly destroyed.
Aiden: "We need wires from somewhere.."
Aribar: "Anyone good at repairing things?"
Aiden: "I can make an attempt."
Dragoshi: "I'm only good at repairing computers. Sorry." :/
Kamui: "... Not me."
Aiden: *early of a character to have many specialties.*
Metal Man (GM): The wires are only cut. A little work and it -should- work.
Aiden makes an attempt.
Metal Man (GM): Which Aiden succeeds at! The group can now jump on the launcher and be flung to the final area.
ChancÃ©: "Shall we go up?"
Kamui: *walks over to the launcher, looking at it.* "Who goes first?"
Aribar: "Sure! ... Who's going first to make sure it's actually aimed properly?"
Deloth: "I will."
Deloth gets into the launcher.
Aribar: "You are a st... Braver soul than I."
Metal Man (GM): *LAUNCH.* Deloth flies over the gap... and to the Bridge.
ChancÃ© climbs on.
Metal Man (GM): Though he flies through a window. But never fear--he's cleared the way for others!
Kamui: *Makes a painful face.* "Ooo!"
Metal Man (GM): Hm... there's a MASSIVE computer here... in fact, there's a nifty ceiling laser too. Chance lands on in too.
Deloth gets up, brushing broken glass off of himse--oh boy.
Dragoshi: "...Damn." *Dragoshi then enters the shooter.*
Aribar follows in the launching madness.
Aiden goes next with his hand near one of his many sword hilts.
Metal Man (GM): Lots of stuff in here, in fact. More lasers, some form of shield generator... Radar jammer...
Aiden: "Would these be supplies that would assist your base's defense? And energy shield would stop such things like a missile."
Deloth marks the walls of the room using more tape. Now THIS place is a treasure trove.
Aribar: "Lots of stuff here... Most definitely."
Dragoshi: "Yep... Those lasers would help too. They could also help stop missiles."
Kamui: *launches after the others belatedly.*
Metal Man (GM): All the Questers gotta do is catalog the stuff--mostly by putting tape and stuff on it.
Aribar: "This has been pretty easy so far."
Deloth: "...Man. I dunno if I'd even have enough tape to mark all this stuff."
ChancÃ©: "Do you like jinxing us Aribar?"
Aribar: "I prefer the term 'Excitement inducing.'"
Aiden: "I'll stand guard. You guys start picking out stuff for your base."
Dragoshi: "I'll stand guard as well. Strength in numbers, after all."
ChancÃ©: "I will join them, just in case."
Kamui: "I don't have any tape."
Aiden begins to walk around the room while they do that examining Eggman's small tech trove.
Metal Man (GM): Oddly, the group doesn't quite feel alone in here...
Aribar takes the tape out of Deloth's hands and begins turning the desired items in the room into duct tape covered monstrosities. Er, I mean covering them with small pieces of duct tape.*
MCV Driver (GM): But it seems there is someone already standing guard at the entrance, or something. It would seem a black color robot like drone hovers just in front of the entrance itself. It hums and stares at the beings in the room.
Kamui: *picks his head up, looking around to see what was around.*
Aiden closes his eyes for a moment.
Dragoshi: *And, Dragoshi glances around, suspicion in his eyes...*
Aribar: "This looks shiny." *DUCK TAPE'D!* "Hrm... Could use another one of these." *TAPEZORED!* "Possibly this." *I CAN'T BELIEVE IT'S NOT DUCK TAPED!*
Metal Man (GM): The Questers can most definitely see it. If not, they hear the humming anyway. It also blocks the light coming in some.
Kamui: *looks at the large machine, his eyes open wide.* "We're gonna have to fight this thing, aren't we?"
Dragoshi: "...What the heck..." *Looks at the drone.* "When'd you get here, if I may ask?"
Aribar: "Hrm..." *The elf blinks, thinking he hears a humming echo... No, wait... He looks towards the entrance.* "Odd... It doesn't look like an Eggrobo... Err... Greetings."
Aiden's hand goes to grab the blade hanging along his back as he looks to the drone.
MCV Driver (GM): The pod saids nothing, just hums in an endless hover, taking in the view of the creatures that move around inside the room, refusing to move.
Dragoshi: "Well... It doesn't seem to be attacking us... Maybe it's some sort of neutral entity?"
Kamui: *walks over to the pod, then taps it's metal with his knuckle.*
ChancÃ©: "Let's call it Bob!"
Aribar: "Dragoshi, I believe you've been spending a bit too much time with your head in the clouds. How often have we found even halfway friendly people on our excursions?"
Dragoshi: *Facepalms.* "And you're not even considering the possibility of that being possible."
MCV Driver (GM): As soon as the knuckle touches the surface of the pod, Kamui would be given a powerful electric shock.
Aribar glances at the shocking experience.* "... Yeah. I'd say it's safe to say I'm not considering that."
Kamui: "ACK!" *Brings his hand away, looking to the machine.*
Aribar goes back to duck taping things until there's nothing useful looking left to tape.*
Dragoshi: "Electrically charged surface, maybe...?"
MCV Driver (GM): *TThe pod then has two hatches on it's side open up as a pair of retractable claws extend outwards, overlooking the creature that dared touch it. Maybe that wasn't such a good idea.*
Dragoshi: *And, Dragoshi sees the thing extend its claws, and, just in case it does anything hostile, prepares to rear back...*
Aribar finishes duck taping everything, which is no easy task with just one hand.* "Okay... I see the thing has become a bit more hostile."
MCV Driver (GM): *Of course right now the main target seems to be the one who touched it, another pair of extending claws coming out of it and moving out a bit more to make it impossible to go around. It then slowly begins to advance on Kamui.
Aribar: "And I do believe it's mad at you... Ah, Mr. Robot thing, if you're listening to me, we come in peace!"
Kamui: *watches on at the metal machine, not knowing what to do now. He then brings his hands around, bringing them up in to a fighting stance.* "Ok tough guy, come get me then!"
MCV Driver (GM): *And when it looks like the Drone is about to attack, it quickly stops and retracts it's claws into it's body, quickly floating up to reveal something behind it. It seems to be a humanoid figure, deck in a full blue armor and standing at a good seven feet plus tall height, his golden visor shinning from what light there is, the helmet of the being searching the crowd in a slow movement.*
Dragoshi: *Gets back into normal pose.* "Okay. Good. It seems like it was a good idea we didn't make any actions that were too rash. Not yet, anyway."
ChancÃ©: "Bob! You evolved! Hello George!"
Dragoshi: *Roars at how bad that was.* "I think you hurt my intelligence with that, Chance."
Kamui: "..." o_o? *he simply stares the robot, raising an eyebrow.* "Ok."
Aribar: "Err... Greetings, new figure."
Aiden: "I can see why this particular time frame was chosen for me to enter. Many others arrived this day."
BAG: *The armor being stands there for a moment, in utter silence... Then begins to laughs. Laughing harder and harder and drawing it out more insanely, then finally stops and and beings... TO sing!* "Boy and girls of every age, wouldn't you like to see something strange? Muahahahaha! Well, well... I expected to find Eggman. But all I see are his little henchmen."
ChancÃ© breaks down in laughter.
Dragoshi: "You got that wrong there, blue robot. We're his enemies."
Aribar: "What's this now? We aren't henchmen of the fat man."
Dragoshi: "I think."
ChancÃ©: "Cure you contagious laughter. ahahah."
Dragoshi: "I forget, what with half the crap that happened. That, added atop to my bad memory..."
Angry BAG: "Oh? Foolish soldier of GUN then? I should have expected! Hmhmhmhm!"
ChancÃ©: "Remind me haha to make you *snort.* a cup of my special *hehe.* tea."
Dragoshi: "We aren't related to that organization."
ChancÃ©: "Ah, that felt good."
Angry BAG: *His visor changed into a red color, how odd.*
Aribar: "We're... Questers."
Kamui: "I don't think he wants to listen."
BAG: "Questers? Oh I see now, That traitor started up his own faction did he?" *And his visor is back to normal.*
ChancÃ©: "... You have level 7 antihero mode going."
Aribar: "I do believe that you're jumping to conclusions. Who are you talking about? Who are you?"
MCV_Driver: "Hmhmhmhm! Ah-hahahahaha! Metal Sonic will soon feel my revenge!"
Dragoshi: "We have no connections to Metal Sonic."
ChancÃ©: "I thought the old questers bet him up a few times?"
Aribar: "Aye, that's true."
Aiden steps forward "I am Aiden of the Time Knights. I can assure you the Questers have no such relation to a 'Metal Sonic'"
Aiden: "That would require your ill will."
Dragoshi: "Aside from that, but I think that one was an illusion related to The Void. ...I think." *Void.
BAG: "OH? Is that so? Then who is your leader and why are you here? You have no second to comply! Muahahahaha!"
Aribar: "Our leader is... No second to comply?"
ChancÃ©: "Was Metal Man... for the past questers anyway, Professor oak, snake, and a few others to help out."
Dragoshi: "...Yes. Illian was the old leader of the Melee Questers. With help from the others. But, in this current incarnation of our organization, the Brawl Questers... I have no idea. I should prolly' ask sometime in the near future." *Sweatdrop.*
BAG: "I have no such data! Hmhmhm! Questers, eh? Why haven't I heard of you? I bet you lied to me... Mhm, yes."
Dragoshi: "No. Seriously. We haven't."
BAG: "You're an underground Project for GUN, aren't you?"
Aribar: "Don't even know what GUN is."
ChancÃ©: "Who is gun anyway?"
Dragoshi: "We have evidence that we're telling the truth. Also, no. We aren't. Whatever GUN is."
ChancÃ©: "Does anyone know?"
BAG: "Hmhmhmhm! I care not. After all, I'm here to steal Eggman's technology and use it to rebuilt what was taken from me."
Aribar: "Ah, we are here for... Mostly the same thing."
Dragoshi: "And we're here to use it to rebuild our own..."
ChancÃ©: "We are here to take it to rebuild the quester base."
BAG: "Oh? Is that so?"
BAG: "Hmhmhmhm! Very troublesome indeed."
Aribar: "There is enough here to split up between us."
Kamui: *knew this would probably go no where except in to a fight, so he hanged back waiting for the robotic creature to make a wrong move.*
ChancÃ©: "So what do you have to rebuild anyway, George?"
BAG: "Share? Why should I share with the likes of you people? And who's the foolish fool calling me that name?"
Dragoshi: "...What is your name, anyway?"
ChancÃ©: "Since you never told us yours, I dubbed you George, you foolish fool who does not know proper manners."
Aiden: "Little creature? Are you in need of a psychiatric evaluation?"
ChancÃ©: "ChancÃ©, by the way."
BAG: "Oh, big words for a foolish weakling. Would it be alright if I make this foolish flesh creature do the fire dance. Singing is require as your skin does melt off."
Aribar: "In case you haven't noticed, you are quite outnumbered."
Dragoshi: "...I think we would all mind. 'Sides, we've already duct taped the stuff as ours, anyway."
ChancÃ©: "And you still have not told us your name."
BAG: "A pity it was never to be known as a name is pointless! But maybe I am hasty but I'm not sure of your true purpose here, Questers. Are you friend or foe of Klein Toys?"
ChancÃ©: "Klein Toys?"
ChancÃ© arcs an eyebrow at Dragoshi mouthing do you know them?
Kamui: *smacks his own forehead in to a nearby wall* "ARRRRGH!
Aribar blinks..* "A... What? Klein Toys? Never heard of them... It.."
Dragoshi: *Checks to see if his Dex has any info on this... 'Klein Toys'* "Well, seeing as we've never heard of your group... Neutral?"
Aribar looks at Kamui.* "Eh?"
BAG: "Oh come on! We r- err, we helped with Cities like Capital City and Casinopolis! Two major cities!"
Angry BAG: "Count fools, count!"
Aiden: .oO(Insane little creature.)
Dragoshi: "...Casinopolis? Capital City?" *Looks at the others.*
Kamui: *brings a hand to the dual-personality robot.* "You, are BORING ME!"
ChancÃ©: "Don't provoke the enemy with boring taunts kid. well... Enemy/friend/?? robot/human."
Kamui: *sits on the ground, breathing heavily through clenched teeth as he tries to regain his cool.*
Aribar: "Apologies. Places like Eisnaught, Goron City, and Toad Town are ones I know. Nothing like Capital City and Casinopolis."
BAG: "That depends... Hmhmhmhm! I suggest you find me someone... Intelligent to speak with. And quickly. Muahahaha!"
Aidan: "That clearly isnt you now is it."
Aribar waves his hand.* "Hi, Aribar Hunter, an archmage of Whaller and intelligent person at your service."
BAG: "Oh! And manners too! Looks like you saved the Questers for now, Mr. Hunter, muahahaha!"
Dragoshi: "Actually, we are somewhat intelligent. We just have no idea about what you're talking about. In any case... Name's Dragoshi. Dragoshi Leucrocuta Helldusk, former Melee Quester, current Brawl Quester, saved reality from the Void, and various other evils, mainly with assistance from other Questers, and yea."
Kamui: *taps his fingers on his cheek as he rests his chin in his left palm, resting his elbow on his knee.* "..."
ChancÃ©: "ChancÃ¨ Lucent, Slightly Crazy Chemist and minor mage."
BAG: "Why do I not have any data then? I contain the various knowledge of Mobius! I should have it!"
ChancÃ©: "Hmm, have you heard of the linked world theroy?"
Dragoshi: "Mobius? What? This makes no sense..."
Aribar: "We are... Not widely known in Mobius."
Dragoshi: "Maybe we should share information, good sir." *To BAG.*
Kamui: *takes out his dex ready to record info.*
Aiden: .oO(Time knight directives would have me destory the creatures personality matrix and simply take it back for data extraction. But for now I must endure talking.)
BAG: "Information? Muahahaha! Oh nothing is more interesting than information. What kind of you have to share?"
Metal Man (GM): Questers were inside the broken bridge of the Wing Fortress, talking to a strange armored man who spoke of seemingly gibberish subjects, of which the dex has no data. Indeed. It is likely he came from another realm. We resume as the Questers are still in the cockpit, talking to him. And we continue. *End narration for now.*
BAG: "Though keep in mind I dislike false information, and even more when it's so poorly put together... it makes me want to burn the information or create a giant mircowave to throw'em into, muahahaha!"
Kamui: *is still with the armored man, at the moment he was trying to write any information in to his dex for later use... but leaves that part out.*
BAG: "However, I have yet to believe this isn't Mobius. Hmhmhmhm, yes! As Eggman is indeed here, and I presume Metal Sonic is as well?"
Dragoshi: "Well, about this world in general, along with information on The Void, who I mentioned a few seconds ago. Along with a few other evils that inhabit and once inhabited this plamet. That sound good?"
BAG: "Very well, hmhmhmhm! Dragoshi! Tell me of this so called non-mobius world and then we'll decide the fate of the future, ah-hahaha!"
Dragoshi: "Understood. First, this world is named... Well, actually I have no idea what it's called now, but it used to go by the name 'Nintendus' during the days of The Void's convoluted inanity."
BAG: "Void? The dream entity?"
Dragoshi: "...Dream Entity? Wha? Would a dream entity look like a ten foot tall mass of pure static darkness with dark red eyes? 'Sides, i'd consider the guy more of an insane deicidal maniac who attempted to destroy all of reality. Let me just show you a picture of him..." *Dragoshi would then pull out his Dex, and flip through it, until he came across the proper image of what he was talking about and show it to BAG.*
BAG: "We speak of different beings, muahahaha! But no matter." *He laughs quietly at the image, like he does everything else.* "I see. So tell me more."
Dragoshi: "Right." *He would then close the Dex, and then put it away.* "Anyway, as my memory is horrible at the moment, and i'm unsure if I can even access historical logs, nor could I just show you a map of what the planet currently looks like via Dex, seeing as no one had the bright idea of putting a friggin' mapping routine in... I'll just get to telling you about the various places of interest.
BAG: "Hmhmhm! But are you called Questers?"
Dex: "Error; you cannot adequetely map an entire multiverse."
Kamui: *Raises an eyebrow at the person.* "... Um, yeah, I think they are." *he would answer.*
Aiden: *pops back up.*
Dragoshi: "Yes, but you can at least map parts of it and put in various computers so one could access one of those computers and then use one of those computers to get a map of the area in question."
Aiden: "Im a Time Knight I dont carry the formal name Quester" *as of yet anyway.*
BAG: "Multiverse? Wait a minute? Is this a world that consists of many other worlds? The kind I hear about when that fool of my other half worked for Dr. Robotnik?"
Dragoshi: "I'd believe so."
Dex: "Correct. It is ever-expanding in size, incorporating new beings and worlds all the time."
Dragoshi: "It's crazy like that."
Dex: "Mapping it can only be done down to the level of individual universes."
BAG: "Oh ho ho! This has now gotten my attention. But what is the program you have that speaks?"
Aiden: "That would be true Dragoshi however maping a partial point of a warping space would need a start point. If that start point begins and ends in two different areas then all one would do is loop... would they not? Unless of course one was at the origen of each place..."
Kamui: *raises an eyebrow at Aiden.* "Come again?"
BAG: "In other words, the impossibility of mapping something that always grows onto another world."
Kamui: "Ah." *writes that down in his dex.*
Aiden: "Basically Kamui two points that begin in different areas can usually be mapped out. However in the instance of warping space. An area ends and begins at the same point and yet at many different other points. Because of that the possibilities become vast and almost infinate to calculate with out some kind of space time aid."
Kamui: *writes that all down, then looks to Aiden.* "So how does that help us right now?"
BAG: "This is indeed, good for me... Very good, gruahahaha! But now we're back to square one. Since I'm stuck here, I'll need to start all over again, and I require a base to do so."
Aiden: "It doesnt help. Its the reason one cannot proceed in that manor."
BAG: "And to build one, I need all those items."
Dragoshi: "Well, i'm sorry, but you'll have to look somewhere else to make a base, as we've already duct taped this stuff as our own for our rebuilding needs. I suggest trying to find other bases. Maybe they might have some of these items""
ChancÃ©: .oO(Hmm... )
BAG: "A waste of time without a map that can not be map. Hmhmhmhm! But could could possible reach an agreement as we seem to both be after the same thing."
Dragoshi: "This agreement being...?"
BAG: "Oh yes, a geing that wish business in a serious manner. Glad to know your type still exists, Muahahaha! It's simple really. I help your rebuilding and you'll help mine. Never hurts to have allies in a world of world where anything extremely evil might jump out and steal your shoes with your feet still in them."
Dragoshi: "Or your bed, while you're still sleeping in it. But, in any case... That sounds fair enough. Though, I should tell you to be on the lookout for a few people. Some friends, and some enemies, to be exact. Oh, and an escapee."
BAG: "Escaping is no fun when it's easy to make your enemies suffer! Ah-hahaha! Then we divide these findings between The Questers and Klein Toys and using each other's technology and resourses to build a future that will be ours one day! I can create many things... However, it's best not to ask as the last being that bothered to has several veins in his head pop open. Gruesome indeed, hmhmhmhm!"
Aiden wonders this little creature's intentions.
ChancÃ©: "So your insane inventions causes chaos as appearances of blood began to appear?"
BAG: "You might say that." *he turns his helmet back to Dragoshi.* "So what do you say?"
Dragoshi: "Well, I guess that would work. I'll get around to mentioning the enemies, allies, and escapee later, then, as my memory's very foggy at the moment."
BAG: *And then the large metal hand reaches out for Dragoshi, expecting him to shake it.*
Dragoshi: *Dragoshi would then extend his own claw, and prepare to use it to shake BAG's.*
BAG: "Then we divide everything up in half like we agree and in fairness as well, cooperating to defeat our enemies. Seems you save the Questers from melting. Muahahah!" *he shakes the claw in a deal, then lets go.*
Metal Man (GM): The dex appears capable of sending a warp signal.
Dragoshi: *Dragoshi lets go as well and puts his claw at ease.* "Understood" *He would then nod and prepare to make a warp back.*
ChancÃ©: "So, dial the dex and let us warp wisely back to base."
BAG: "Oh goodie! A wrap! I will enjoy seeing this place of yours, hmhmhm!"
ChancÃ©: "Oh, watch out for the bump on the third energy wave."
Aiden: "Ok then... I guess this is where I follow you back and report to your higher ups."
BAG: "Hmhmhm! How delightful indeed." *He laughs to himself, never seeming to stop either.*
Metal Man (GM): A warp appears to the side.
Dex: "Warp is ready."
Dragoshi: *And, Dragoshi enters the warp, whee.*
ChancÃ© dashes into ze warp.
Kamui: *steps in to the warp next.*
BAG: *And the armored man steps in. *The humming pod follows afterward.*
Metal Man (GM): Mission complete. The group is all at HQ, with the parts. Panzer would be there too, having fully repaired SIMBER. Of course, it isn't a complete set, but... useful enough.
MCV_Driver: *Val is elsewhere, making things.*
Kamui: *walks over to Panzer.* "How'd the repairs go?"
Digifanatic: *Is currently coming from somewhere else--probably his room or wherever and is headed to R&R.*
Dragoshi: *Pops up.*
Digifanatic: .oO(Sweet, new face. They just keep coming...)
BAG: "So... This is the so called Quester's HQ? Hmhmhmhm! What an amusing place." *He saids after fading in, POD right above him.*
Digifanatic: "Oh, hello." *quickly to Dragoshi.* "How'd it go?" *and then to Aiden.* "What do you think of this so far?"
SIMBER: *Appears before BAG. Strikingly, the same color as BAG, but a hologram of a futuristic military general of some kind.* "This is... what's left of it."
Dragoshi: "It went well. Not only did we get the stuff, we also acquired an ally." *Points thumb at BAG.*
Digifanatic: "Ah... man, we're getting new faces by the night and then some, it seems."
BAG: "Oh! A computer Program! How enlighting! Hmhmhm!"
Digifanatic: .oO(What's next? One of my old friends pops up out of nowhere? Ah, nice wish but hey, you've dealt with it before.)
SIMBER: "Yes. Mostly." *He glances at the parts.* "This is only half the required parts. I assume the rest were lost somehow?"
BAG: "Oh no. The rest are for the fundation for Klein Toys."
Dragoshi: "And in return., he'd help us rebuild our HQ."
Digifanatic: "Well, that's nice."
Kamui: *looks over to SIMBER!* "How you feeling?"
BAG: "Yes. Rebuild indeed... Hmhmhmhm!"
SIMBER: "Small toys?" ?!?! "What's a Klein Toys?"
Digifanatic: "So, what else is new, besides these two folks?" *unaware of Kamui and Panzer, and is aware of Valentine's return.*
BAG: "It would seem this one is the leader, having figured it out so soon. Muahahaha!
SIMBER: "Well... the original leader programmed me. I guess you could look at me that way." *He looked honored.* "I wish Master Hand would do more than make broad statements..."
BAG: "Master hand? Tell me more of this... Hand Master, hmhmhm! Information is the best when it comes to many things."
Panzer huffs, having left the stupid, arrogant system alone after fixing it. She was sitting on her tank, smoking a cigar... Despite the fact that reploids didn't breathe.
SIMBER: "He's a giant floating hand, with lots of powers. He speaks in a booming voice."
BAG: "I love this multiverse already! Guahahaha! ...AH-hahahaha! A floating, talking hand with powers!"
ChancÃ©: "You're forgeting his brother."
Kamui: "... Crazy hand?"
SIMBER: "That hand destroys instead of creating."
BAG: "A brother hand? Muahahaha! Now I don't seem crazy at all now. Hmhmhm- Ah-hahahaaha! But anyways, who's the tour guide around here?"
SIMBER: "Well, it's usually me, but the place is sort of on fire." *He points at the two rooms, joined due to the wall between them exploding.* "Top secret computer room A, Bigger Room." *He points at R&R, with the couches and such.* "Rest and Relaxation room." *He points down the hallway.* "Warp room." *He points at an elevator.* "That leaves to Quester dorms as well as the Stadium, where battles are televised and fought."
Panzer looks over at SIMBER. "Jackass. Doesn't even have to courtesy to thank me." She rolled her eyes and laid back on the tank, continuing to puff on her cigar.
BAG: "Oh? And who's the girl? It seems she's not pleased with your standing, muahahaha!"
Panzer turns her head. "You tell me who you are first."
SIMBER: "Oh. Right." *He turned around and waved at Panzer.* "Thank you. You had the courtesy to not try to use super glue to put me back together, unlike the previous boss. Super glue makes me aaaangry..." *He coughed.*
Panzer: "Someone tried to superglue you back together? Stupid. Glue doesn't adhere to metal. Not even that of the... Archaic type.
BAG: "Me? I'm the ally of the Questers, founders and leader of Klein Toys. Hmm, yes. Hmhmhmhm!"
Panzer: "Okay chuckles, so you make toys?" She looked to the others. "Oh yes. That is what we needed. A toy maker for an ally. Atleast we won't fail at having presents for Christmas." she rolls her eyes.
SIMBER: "Anyway. You're free to mill around... and help bolt those weird looking plates and laser guns to the outside and inside."
Dragoshi: "I'll help with the inside stuff." *Goes off to do that. Whee. <_>*
BAG: "No mere toys, I assure you. But I lack proof, but you'll soon see why I was feared on Mobius." *He then looks over at SIMBER* Instead of Lasers, we use little devices that spits acid at people. Let them know we mean business as their body boils away with a hissing musical number, muahahah!"
Panzer simply sits and more or less finishes her cigar, then climbs off her tank and hops down. She started to wander around aimplessly inside the base.
Dragoshi: *Before leaving.* "I can spit out acid at people, but eh." *Leaves to help with rebuilding from the inside.*
BAG: "First I'd like to start up a base front. Warp me to a place with a lot of ruins but zero population."
Digifanatic: .oO(Dang... all this crap going on here at HQ... the tournament's gotta be postponed for a while, so I probably won't be doing any matches soon... boy, I've got to figure out something to do when I'm not involved in duty.)
SIMBER: "That will... take a bit of analysis first. You could probably understand."
BAG: "The growing worlds. I love it, muahahah! I'm going to walka bout outside until then."
Panzer walks back out and looks at the toy maker. "Shut up with the fucking laughing. It's giving me a headache."
BAG: *He just laughs as he does so, exploring around with his humming pod, hovering endlessly. Seems he's not one to ever listen to commands.*
Panzer rolls her eyes and shrugs, considering shooting him. Hand went to readjust the strap on her shoulder before she went back to her tank and sat on it.
Digifanatic gets up and walks throughout some of the broken sections of the HQ... .oO(It always seems to happen one time or another.)
Val: *And with that timing, the small girl with his enclosed lab coat and Black boots. Seems she got herself adjusted once again.* "Seems the Quester were successful. Good thing too. This place needs a lot of work."
Dragoshi: *Not in the room to respond as he is busy trying to rebuild stuff from the inside, so yea.* :/
Val: I will start on the eletronic equipment before repairing all computer functions. I trust they won't have any objections to that."
Kamui: *walks over to Panzer's tank, staring up at her for a moment.* "..."
Panzer looks down. "What do you want?"
Kamui: *blinks, then shrugs his shoulders.* "Cool tank."
Panzer lifts a brow. "Danke.." She gives him a suspicious look.
Kamui: *looks at the tank for a moment.* "What kind of rounds does the main gun fire?"
Panzer rolls her eyes. "180 MM shells... I modified it."
Digifanatic just keeps walking around... soon enough, he finds himself back around R&R. Not seeing much, he wanders over to where Dragoshi and the others have gone... wait a minute? Two more new faces? Oh, one of them's that armored guy Dragoshi said, but hang on...
Kamui: *nods his head, tapping the metal with his knuckle in the back of his finger.* "Tanks are usually so expensive to opperate and support, where'd you get it?"
Digifanatic: *A bit flustered on Panzer's name at the moment--hey, it's been years since he's last seen her, but she does look a bit familiar.* "Decided to come back like a whole bunch of us, huh?"
Panzer doesn't like answering too many questions. "It was found by me in a junkyard. I fixed it. It's been here for ages, none of you idiots managed to look udner the big, dusty tank-shaped canvas." She looked over at Digi, having forgotten him. "You are...??"
Digifanatic: "Uh, Digi? From a while back..."
Kamui: *looks over to Digi for a moment, then back to Panzer's tanks looking at it's design trying to figure it's power, mobility and protection.* "..."
Digifanatic: "But for a while, I've only been referring to that as my old nickname. You can call me Ian now if you want to."
Panzer shrugged. "I'll remember later. I need to update my memory anyway." Eyes went back to Kamui. "It's a Tiger 1 model." She knew the look, having gotten it several times. "That's all you need to know. Try your Dex or something."
Digifanatic nods and just stands there, looking around. "That tank is nice."
Deloth is currently, uh... in Doctor Mario's office, digging through cabinets and drawers to find some sleeping pills, gauze, and maybe some rubbing alcohol to, um, "borrow". Yeah, that's the ticket.
Dragoshi: *And, Dragoshi is still rebuilding the HQ from the inside.*
Kamui: *looks over to Panzer.* "I just realized something. Your name, Panzer? It's off of an anti-tank weapon by the name of Panzerfaust, right?"
Digifanatic: *quietly.* "That's it. I remember that name now... thanks, whoever you are."
Panzer sighs and rolls her eyes. "No. My name means tank. Panzer is a word on it's own, it doesn't have to be coupled with other things."
Kamui: "Mmm, sorry." *he scratches the back of his neck, giving a calm yet embarrassed look.* "Well, I'm gonna get out of your hair now." *he turns and heads off to find Dragoshi.*
Panzer shrugs. She flicked an ear, watching him leave before looking back to Digi. "May I help you?"
Digifanatic: "Nah, just wanted to reacquaint or something... so many new folks showing up and older ones coming back and all. To be honest, I like it a lot."
Panzer: "I see. I have only seen two old faces here, yours is one. Everyone else is new... And God they're cocky, stuck-up bastards." She seemed a bit off-set by his statement. "No one ever liked me, but I got the job done. That's all that matters."
Digifanatic: "Who's the other... hmm, Aribar?"
Digifanatic: "Ah, thought so."
Valentine wanders by at the right time.* "Sometimes a new face isn't the greatest thing."
Digifanatic: "Well, Panz, you have a good level of truth to the statement--hello, Val."
Deloth sighs and walks out of the room. No stealing today...
Panzer's back plate and the sides of her boots expell a rather hot, partially radioactive cloud of smoke as she vents off some of the by-products of her reactor.
Panzer looks over, watching Valentine walk by. "Huzzie."
Digifanatic: "By the way, I have to catch up on that other new face--the one you were talking to when I came in. I hate it when I wait too long to introduce myself."
Dragoshi: *And, Dragoshi is taking a break in some random part of the HQ, mixing two things together... With one of those things being hot sauce? What?*
Panzer: "Then skiddadle."
Digifanatic: *walks around, looking for Kamui.*
MCV_Driver: "Hello to you both." *The girls gives a light nod, stopping temporarly.*
Kamui: *simply walks around in the base, his hands resting in his pockets.*
Panzer: "Guten tag."
Digifanatic: "Hello, newer fellow. Everything going alright so far?"
Deloth finally steps outside to get a breath of fresh air, stretching and yawning--and stopping mid-stretch when he sees Panzer.
Digifanatic: "I wish the place was in a bit better of a shape, but hey, things happen and you can't control them that immediately, you know?"
Deloth: "...Man, the one person I thought I'd never see again..."
Dragoshi: *And, Dragoshi drinks from the glass.* "Ahh... Sometimes, taking a break to drink the sake/hot sauce combo can be good. But, anyway back to work." *Goes back to doing repairs.*
Kamui: *pulls to a stop, looking over towards Digifanatic.* "Yeah." *he nods his head, then continues walking along.*
Val: "I wouldn't say I'm new, nor am I coming to stay. I was brought here by mistake while I was searching." *She then looks up at Panzer.* "German. I haven't heard that since leaving my world."
Panzer reaches up and takes her helmet off, setting it down at her side, brushing her fur back neatly. She looked over at Deloth. "It wasn't my intention to come back, either."
Panzer looks back down at Valentine. "You should go back. It's a lot more pleasant than English."
Deloth: "Then... what? You came back just to say hi, swipe some food, and leave?"
Digifanatic: *follows along.* "Hey, I'm not trying to do anything bad, I just like to get to know my fellow fighters as soon as possible, that's all."
Panzer once more looks to Deloth. "I don't eat. But no. I'm not leaving, unless you all want me to."
Digifanatic: *optimistic tone.* "So, who are ya and what brings you here with us?"
Val: "I'm actually Japanese." *Though she looks nothing like it.* "And I choose to stay here."
Deloth: "I can't speak for the others, but I think we need all the help we can get right now, so..."
Panzer shrugs. "I don't speak a lick of Japanese." Eyes shift to Deloth. "Very well. Why aren't you all starting to rebuild?"
Kamui: *he nods his head to Digi's first sentence. As the questions start coming up he rubs his head as if having a headache.* "My name is Kamui, as to what brought me here, some portal malfunction back where I came from."
Deloth: "We're trying to get some stuff to integrate for better defenses first so that this doesn't happen again. My question is, how did YOU get back here?"
Dragoshi: *And, Dragoshi seems to be the only one rebuilding. Freakin' slackers...@_@.*
Panzer: "It'll probably happen again. None of you appear to have a leader. what a rag-tag outfit. I got here because the place in which you all left me disappeared, and I woke up next to my tank."
Val: "She has a point. Rebuilding doesn't get done by itself." *The girl then wanders in the same direction she was walking towards.*
Digifanatic: "Ah, those little things... trust me, you're not the first person to tell me that sort of story--nothing wrong with it. Let's see... Ian 'Digifanatic' Hoffman--the middle name's an old nickname of mine when I first came here, trust me, I was young--but you can say 'Digi' for short if that pleases you."
Kamui: *makes it over to where Dragoshi is.* "Hey, there you are. You're not slacking behind are ya?"
Digifanatic: "Or you can call me Ian; that's fine as well."
Dragoshi: "No. But, it seems I can't say that about most of the others at the moment." :/ *Continuing the rebuilding.*
Deloth: "Well, I see your talent for insulting everything you come across is intact... anyways. I probably need to help Drag out, so I'll see you later." *heads back into HQ.*
Digifanatic: "Yeah, I should probably help you folks with that. With the tournament probably at bay for now, not much more to do that assist in repairing this place..."
Panzer gives a simple wave. "If they need the bigger pieces of concrete or steel moved, tell me."
Kamui: *looks over to Ian.* Alright Ian, well it looks like Dragoshi needs help. *he walks over to Dragoshi.* So is there anything that I can help with.
Deloth: "I'm in with the renewal project, too. Need some stuff welded?"
Dragoshi: "Yea. Help me bolt these plates to the inside. And, Del, you help with the lasers."
Digifanatic: *Assumes he'll help repairing stuff--he's not the most gifted in repairs, but he knows how to do basic stuff.*
Kamui: *nods his head towards Dragoshi, then walks over as he looks around. He finds the bolt tool, then begins bolting the plates.*
Deloth: "Okay. What do you want me to do with 'em?"
Dragoshi: "Find some good, strategically advantageous areas to attach them to, then put them in aforementioned areas. Just make sure to save some for the outside, though."
Deloth: "I might not be best at scoping those out..."
Dragoshi: "I'll assist, then."
Deloth: "Oh, okay. Ready when you are, then." *grabs a laser.*
Dragoshi: "Understood." *And, so Dragoshi assists. <_>*
Kamui: *continues patching up the holes, the ones that were strategically weak.*
Deloth follows Drag's lead, dropping the lasers where indicated... seriously, though, I shouldn't have to spell ALL of this out.
Dragoshi: *END SESSION!*
