Super Smash Quest - Story - Chapter 79: Bats n' Meteorites
Date: August 9th, 2004.
Razor (GM): http://www.vgmusic.com/music/console/nintendo/nes/CV2-_Bloody_Tears.mid
Gibby faces the... whatever it is that came down.
Razor (GM): There. We use THAT music. Now... let us begin! The bat swoops down towards the party... and there are numerous metal parts on it! It appears to have been heavily modified... it's... a cyborg bat? It lets out a screech before attacking the party!
Deloth: "Anyone care to do a scan?"
Gibby: "I will!" *He whips out his dex, and scans the monster.*
Locos Docos: "Use the advanced dex!"
Smash Dex: *BING!* "Mecha Darkwing. HP: 400? Defense: 14? DR: 20? Darkwing Bat, the first guardian of Dracula's Castle. This one appears to have been modified. It has taken many forms in times past. Be careful."
Gibby: "Too many questions..."
Razor: "Well... that was a lot of help..."
Locos Docos just literally sneezes at the stats.
Deloth: "Looks like a worthy opponent."
Razor: "Kill that thing!"
Locos Docos snuffs real loud.
Gibby: "Yeah... kill it."
Locos Docos: "Well... at least we know what not to use."
Gibby whips out his sword (a lot of whipping from Gibby here), and runs over to the Bat. He starts things off with an upward slash.
Razor (GM): Hit.
Locos Docos hears only the screeching of metal.
Razor: *TINK!* Gibby's sword bounces harmlessly off its armor.
Deloth: "No good."
Gibby leaps back to the others.
Razor (GM): Congratulations, Gibby! You've received the IMPOTENCE award! FIVE COINS!
Gibby: "Some special attacks would be good."
Razor flips his blades up over his head. They crackle with a green light before his slices at the air, the two large purple crystalline blades making large green arcs that zip at the bat. "ANNIHILATE!"
Locos Docos: "Razaa! Attack with all thy might on the tail!"
Razor (GM): Hit, CRITICAL HIT!
Deloth: "Alright, some damage."
Razor (GM): The bat screeches angrily before flipping back, hovering in the air for a moment. Its chest opens up, revealing... a missile rack! It screeches again, sending a flurry of missiles at Gibby and Razor!
Deloth: "Ooh, that is gonna bruise."
Razor simply leaps into the air, taking wing as he easily avoids the flurry of missiles. Gibby, however, is caught by four of the blasts!
Gibby: "GAH! THE PAIN!"
Razor (GM): "Gibby! Someone heal him!"
Gibby is down to near death...
Aribar dashes towards the huge bat and casts True Strike on the Mage Masher before attempting a Bi-Bolt slash on the fiend followed by a Heroic-Surge powered Magic Missle. "Qee'lak B'luthel Killian! Faer Nl'gnos!"
Razor (GM): Gibby is UNCONSCIOUS. Hit, miss! Electric damage!
Aribar: "There goes my Magic Missile spells..."
Locos Docos: "They indeed sucked."
Deloth turns to Gibby and uses Divine Cure on him.
Locos Docos: "And it be strictly foolhardy to use the Yoshi Cookie here! One of its effects can..." *gulp.* "...fully heal an opponent!"
Gibby: "Ahh... much better... and since when does a bat have missiles?"
Razor: "Apparently this one does, keep on your toes!"
Locos Docos: "...Every one..." *He inhales like a hurricane with cows moving all along the wind and a window or two...* "...coo..vv... ee..r... eea.r.r..ss."
Gibby: "Uh oh..."
Deloth covers his ears.
Gibby scrunches into a ball.
Razor: *He shields his eardrums.*
Locos Docos lets loose the Phonomizer, the attack that lets loose and replaces his voice with a booming thunder.
Deloth slowly uncovers his ears.
Razor (GM): Half damage!
Locos Docos breathes heavily.
Deloth: "Veeeerrrryyyy loooooud..."
Yurie appears from behind the party, then swings her new blade at the thing. Energy gathers around the Darkwing, then explodes in a giant, black, white, red and gold pillar.
Razor (GM): Halved!
Razor takes his vantage point in the air to zip in and deliver another Annihilate attack right in the cyborg bat's face.
Razor (GM): Hits!
Yurie leaps upwards, her new sword glowing before she whips it forwards. lines of energy lance around in a tight formation around the Were Bane's blade, slashing the bat rapidly.
Razor (GM): HitHitHitCRITHit. Yurie slices into its armor, gouging through for Gibby!
Gibby decides that it's time to get with it... simples slashes are no good anymore. He starts things off by taking a mushroom for some extra health. He then runs over to the Bat, his sword glowing white. He leaps up to the Bat's head, and lands on it with a stab to the head (smash attack).
Razor (GM): HIT! *KaSTAB* Because I said so, Gibby strikes a gap in its armor created by Yurie, dealing full damage!
Gibby leaps back to the group. "That'll show ya!"
Razor (GM): The bat zips at Razor, brandishing rather sharp looking metallic claws on its feet. In a flash, it makes three passes at him with those massive raking claws. HIT missRIPOSTE miss.
Razor slices at the bat as it passes.
Razor (GM): Doing... nada.
Razor grunts as the claws dig into his Fusion suit.
Deloth runs towards the bat, jumps into the air, and disappears in a puff of black smoke, only to reappear behind the bat and slash it twice in the back.
Razor (GM): SHADOW WARP! HITHIT!
Deloth warps back to the group.
Razor: *Slakaslash!* The dig into its back for a whopping... few bits of damage. Hey, at least Deloth hurt the piece of crap...
Gibby: "...I wanna teleport..."
Locos Docos raises his right arm with his hand full out and facing the bat. He cups his wrist with his right hand, and begins to concentrate the energy to his hand. His eyes glow the color of a white full moon. It rapidly charges as he yells "WWWWWHHHIIIIIIITE..." and the energy fires from his hand as he says "...AAAAAIIIIIRRRRRRR!"
Razor (GM): Half damage.
Luthiel Moonlek would whip out the boomerang and cast Damage 1.5X. He hurls the boomerang at the bat...
Razor (GM): *Whoosh!* The bat easily slides out of the way... but the boomerang is coming back! Hit! Aaaand... shaCRACK. Luthiel hits it in the back of its head for full damage... looks like it's not armored there or something... but it's moving to protect itself now.
Razor smirks to the bat. "Now to finish you off! One last time! ANNIHILATE!" He swings up both of his blades, sending two waves of green energy at the massive bat.* *ShingkaSHING!*
Razor (GM): The waves cut right through it, and the bat freezes in the air for a moment before falling to the ground in two halves.
Locos Docos: "Thar we go..."
Luthiel Moonlek blinks with a nod. "Deadly..."
Gibby: "That was easier than I thought it was going to be."
Razor (GM): The two pieces seem to melt into puddles of flesh and metal, however... and begin to take new form!
Gibby: "...I take that back."
Deloth: "Juuuust ducky."
Razor: "...oh... you've gotta be CENSORED kidding me..."
Luthiel Moonlek blinks again and gets into an offensive stance, holding the boomerang ready to be thrown.
Gibby: "It's like that movie I saw... with the guy... and he wouldn't die..."
Locos Docos: "Blah. This new form will be as easy to fall like the last one."
Razor (GM): In only a few seconds, the two chunks of bat have reformed themselves into two smaller versions of Mecha Darkwing! They take flight again and launch four missiles each at Razor and Locos!
Yurie: "Um... priest? Got any more boosting spells?"
Luthiel Moonlek nods to Yurie. "I'm on it..."
Razor (GM): Razor once more easily avoids them, while Locos is caught in two of the blasts!
Locos Docos has that burning sensation. He first sets his Dodge on the one that hit him. "It's Hammer Time!" He soars to the air and attempts to hit the head of the Darkwing that hit him.
Metal Man comes on in, once again late. "...Last time I fall asleep in a building infested with monsters."
Razor (GM): That's a miss.
Locos Docos lands beneath and makes a crack on the ground.
Deloth attempts another Shadow Warp on the left bat.
Razor (GM): Two hits!
Deloth poofs back to the party. "I like this new move."
Razor: *Tink, SLASH!*
Gibby: "As do I... give it to me!"
Deloth: "That would require giving you my sword, and that will never happen."
Luthiel Moonlek would turn to Yurie and cast Resistance on her, then turn to Razor and cast Haste on him. He then turns to face the bat with the lowest HP and hurls the boomerang at it.
Gibby: "You're no fun..."
Metal Man: "I will destroy them easily."
Yurie: "Yeah yeah, we know... " *scans the bats..*
Razor (GM): The bat still slides out of the way of the boomerang.
Smash Dex: *BING!* "Mecha Darkwing. HP: 200? Defense: 18? DR: 10?"
Razor: "They got weaker!"
Gibby: "Well yeah... it's halved."
Razor: "Thanks, Luthiel!"
Luthiel Moonlek nods to Razor and catches the boomerang.
Gibby turns to the bat. "EAT THIS!" He opens his mouth, and shoots a wave of flames at it.
Razor (GM): Both... and an amazing hit! One bat takes the brunt of the flames, but the other one darts out of the way!
Deloth: "Nice flames."
Gibby: "I try..."
Yurie: "Bleh, try avoiding this!" *He jabs her fist out, launching a string of fireballs at the weaker bat.*
Razor (GM): 2 Hits.
Locos Docos: "KILL, ERADICATE... DESTROY!!"
Gibby: "Calm yourself, Locos..."
Razor (GM): Hit.
Metal Man: "Alright! Time to destroy!" *He spins around his sword, then fires a Tri-attack at Bat 1.* *HIT.*
Razor (GM): No damage... these buggers have Evasion.
Locos Docos: "...If those beasts can evade that attack of Metal's, then we are gonna have a troubling time!"
Metal Man decides to SMASH Bat 1 to pieces with his huge Buster Sword.
Razor (GM): HIT!
Razor, now hasted, performs yet another Annihilate attack upon Bat 1... Partial Attack will come after that hits.
Razor (GM): Aaaand... a double miss!
Razor growls, spinning about in the air and peforming another double slash, sending two waves of violet energy at Bat 1.
Razor (GM): HITS!
Luthiel Moonlek would cast Damage 1.5x and hurl the boomerang at Bat #1.
Razor (GM): HIT! *TINK* Luthiel Moonlek grabs the boomerang as it comes back at him, reminding himself to AIM FOR THE HEAD...
Locos Docos: "...What a power."
Razor (GM): Bat 1, ignoring the annoyance of Luthiel, fires four missiles at Yurie, whilst Bat 2 swoops down and claws at Locos, Gibby, and Luthiel!
Locos Docos pulls his hammer out of the ground, finally... if he can.
Razor (GM): Bad luck, Yurie is caught in two of the blasts! They also hit Gibby and Locos.
Locos Docos is now at almost no health left. He takes the full blast, then rushes to bat 1. At close range, he inhales... He lets whirlwinds around him to let others know he'll use the phonomizer.
Gibby rolls into a ball again.
Razor covers his ears again.
Yurie covers her ears as well.
Luthiel Moonlek covers his ears.
Locos Docos finally let's out that thunderous boom, this time holding his own ears as well.
Gibby: .oO(I wish he wouldn't USE that so much...)
Razor (GM): Bat 1 darts around behind Locos, but Bat 2 is caught up in the blast.
Gibby is going to get revenge on them Bats. He opens his mouth, and a purple gas shoots out at them.
Gibby: "Stupid bats..."
Yurie growls, then release yet another string of fireballs at the weaker of the bats.
Razor (GM): HitCRIT! Bat 1 appears to be weakening... its flight becomes labored.
Locos Docos: "...Metal! Finish this one off!"
Metal Man: "Okay... lemme think..."
Yurie: "Don't think! Make the thing explode!"
Metal Man (GM): "FLAMING UPPERCUT!" *He flies up, ready to burn the bat.*
Locos Docos: "...Don't use one that is easily dodged again."
Metal Man: "Well, you told me to not think."
Razor smirks and whirls about in the air, sending two normal waves at Bat 1 and two Annihilate blasts at Bat 2.
Razor (GM): Hits! Haste is a good thing. ^_^
Locos Docos: "...That second seems like it's gonna be collapsing anytime soon..."
Metal Man: "YAH!" *He does a charging Smash DEATH attack of d00m on Bat 1.*
Razor (GM): Indeed... they both appear to be fluttering a little more erratically. And... despite the Crit-missage... Metal DID beat its defense... so that's a hit... though it rakes at Metal with its claws... which really can't break through his armor.
Yurie smirks, then bombards Bat 1 with another 4 fireballs.
Locos Docos: "...Would you care to do something other than that?"
Gibby: "QUIET! It's working..."
Yurie: "Oh hush..."
Razor (GM): Two hits! BURNINATED! Bat 1 catches fire, flutters around a bit, and drops to the ground... before performing a similar trick as to what happened before, forming two even smaller bats!
Locos Docos: "...Well while it's overused, it DOES get the job done."
Razor (GM): Bat 2 twists towards Yurie and swoops down upon her thrice! Hit, Hit, CRITMISS!
Yurie growls, then returns with her own POWER HIT.
Razor (GM): HIT!
Locos Docos: "...I can only think that that remaining large one will split as well."
Yurie needs healing BAD.
Razor (GM): Aaaand... Bat 2 is split clean in half! And Locos is indeed correct... it splits into two smaller bats!
Locos Docos: "So let's take THAT down before we attack the rest. ...Never mind."
Luthiel Moonlek would first of all cast Cure Light Wounds on Locos...
Locos Docos: "...I can survive another moderate attack since I can remain conscious after sustaining heavy damage... But a heavy one or another missle WILL take me out."
Locos Docos clutches his wound. "Gibby, attack swiftly, and with severity on our behalf!"
Luthiel Moonlek would then turn and cast Damage 1.5x and hurl the boomerang at Bat 2's HEAD, hoping it wasn't as heavily armored as the rest of it's body.
Razor (GM): Luthiel misses... these guys are even quicker! Yurie is healed.
Locos Docos: "I can only guess..."
Gibby tosses Yurie a mushroom for her wounds. He decides to deal with those four smaller bats right away. He takes aim, and breathes a large amount of fire at them.
Razor (GM): u.u Knocks the first one down a couple points.
Locos Docos: "...They have around 100 HP, 20 def, and 5 DR."
Razor (GM): The bats are still recovering from the second split!
Locos Docos takes out his uncool Advanced Dex and autodexes one of the non-hit bats.
Smash Dex: "Mecha Darkwing. HP: 100. Defense: 22."
Locos Docos nods.
Smash Dex: "DR: 0."
Locos Docos: "...Close... and far off."
Yurie: "Locos, use Phonomizer!"
Gibby: "NO! NOT AGAIN!"
Locos Docos: "!"
Razor: "They could dodge it..."
Locos Docos inhales like a hurricane, this time aiming at all four of them...
Gibby: "I can't stand it... AW CRAP!" *He rolls into a ball.*
Yurie covers her ears.
Razor: "Gah..." *He braces himself.*
Luthiel Moonlek covers his ears.
Locos Docos: *This time, the wind picks up dogs, cats, and King Dedede. He covers his ears, and unleashes the loud booming thunder noise.*
Razor (GM): TWO HITS! Ouch!
Locos Docos breathes normally... though takes some... recoil to that.
Razor (GM): Bats 3 and 4 are REELING.
Locos Docos begins to cough.
Razor (GM): Literally... Bat 3 just ran into a wall...
Locos Docos: "...Uhh..." *cough.* "...that really hurts after three times..."
Gibby: "I wonder if you can get laryngitis from that?"
Razor (GM): Bat 4 swoops in at Locos for a trio of swipes with its little claws!
Razor first points his blade at Bat 2. "You first... OBLITERATE!" While a pulse of black energy engulfs Bat 2, he slashes twice in the air, sending two waves at Bat 3.
Locos Docos collapses, clutching a wound on his chest, and breathing heavily..
Razor (GM): FAILURE!
Locos Docos is near death.
Razor (GM): Bat 2 is engulfed by the black energy... no remains are left behind. Miss, HIT to bat 3!
Locos Docos: "BBrrrraawwwhhh, bbrraawwwHHHeee..!"
Gibby notices Locos on the ground, and decides to help him out. He walks up to him, and the lights dim. This time, Gibby's wearing one of those giant white wigs from the 18th century, and a piano appears. He starts dancing the Gibby Dance on the piano keys while a Beethoven's 9th symphony plays. When he finishes, the piano and wig disappear, and the lights fade in. Locos would be healed again.
Locos Docos twirls around a couple times, and stops and gives a double thumbs up to Gibbster.
Luthiel Moonlek would cast Damage 1.5x and throw tue boomerang at bat 4.
Razor (GM): CRITICAL HIT!
Gibby gives a thumbs up to Locos.
Locos Docos: "Whoo! I feel partially regenerated."
Gibby: "Well you should..."
Luthiel Moonlek catches the boomerang with a sigh of relief.
Yurie growls, then bumrushes Bat 4, thrusting her sword out and releasing a Slice and Dice.
Razor (GM): 3 hits! Yurie splatters Bat 4 into bits with her first slash, and continue sliding through into Bat 3, who also falls to her furious swipes! 1 bat left.
Gibby: "Take care of it!"
Locos Docos: "...Hurricane again?"
Locos Docos: "Well it survived this long so... Have a cookie!" *He throws a Yoshi cookie into the air, and it hovers there.*
Razor (GM): o.o
Locos Docos: *The cookie goes back to Locos, and it goes down his throat, causing him suffering and damage.*
Gibby: "...nice one."
Locos Docos clutches his heart. He is now worse off than before... even closer to death.
Razor: "...he just choked himself with a cookie... nice..."
Razor (GM): Bat 1 darts at Razor, slicing at him twice before darting towards Yurie and slashing at her!
Locos Docos: "Hey! There's a chance it can do unwanted consequences... I just risked it."
Gibby: "Well I'm not healing him again..."
Locos Docos: "It's totally random; I can't control what it goes!"
Razor (GM): CRIT, hit, miss.
Yurie steps out of the way of the slash. -.-
Yurie: "Luth, heal him if you would..." *She whirls around, and back-hand slashes the Bat.*
Gibby: "And tape his mouth shut while you're at it."
Razor (GM): Barely a hit!
Razor twirls his still blackened blade about for a moment. "One left... OBLITERATE!" He fires another bolt of shadowy energy at the bat. *FAILURE.*
Yurie smirks, then rushes at the bat, her sword lashing out as lines of purple energy lash about it, forming multiple angles, acting as a Slice and Dice.
Razor (GM): The final bat is engulfed in by the darkness and lets out a terrifying screech before it is obliterated into nothingness. A small red orb hovers in the air for a moment before dropping to the ground, glowing faintly. It's dead... errr...
Yurie huhs, then picks up the orb...
Gibby watches Yurie attack nothing.
Razor (GM): http://www.vgmusic.com/music/console/nintendo/nes/Castlevania_Area_Clear.mid
Locos Docos: "...Don't pick that up!"
Gibby: "Yeah! Didn't you learn anything from that place in the desert?"
Razor (GM): The orb flashes brightly in Yurie's hand, and the party is healed of all wounds! The door to the Marble Gallery opens up!
Gibby: "YAY!" *He heads into el Marble Gallery.*
Luthiel Moonlek follows Gibby towards the Marble Gallery, blinking.
Razor drops to the ground and pulls out his Dex as he heads on in. "Alucard, we've made our way to the Marble Gallery. Ready to come home." *WARP!*
Locos Docos: "How much stronger is Dracula than this piece of junk?"
Razor (GM): The party is whisked away... I'll take this opportunity to hand out awards! Garrick recieves the DAMAGE AWARD! He had the highest damage roll in the mission! 50 coins! Razor receives the KILLMASTER AWARD! He had the most kills in the mission at 27! 75 Coins!
Locos Docos: "Well now, Mewtwo. Let's see what we get."
Razor (GM): Gibby receives the CROWD PLEASER AWARD! His stylish moves and entertaining dances earned him the favoritism of those observing! 100 Coins! Yurie receives the PERSISTANCE AWARD! She just didn't give up, even after it was dead, and she sliced away through multiple foes! 50 Coins! *WHOOSH!* The Questers reappear in the Big Room. Alucard and Mewtwo both look quite pleased.
Gibby: "Hey guys!"
Luthiel Moonlek blinks a little and looks around a little startled, gripping the beads in his hand.
Razor (GM): Alucard claps a few times.
Alucard: "Very impressive, Questers. Worth every penny... in fact, I think I'll teach you all a few of my own personal moves for that performance..."
Locos Docos: "So long as it fits my personality, I'll gladly accept. Otherwise, I won't need it."
Razor (GM): Everyone receives 500 Coins! Nice! Going down the list...
Alucard: "You fought very well... you showed coolness under bad conditions... and you're a good dancer too. I award you with SWORDBRAND."
Razor (GM): Swordbrand: X-element + X-element + X-element + Power Hit (Requires a full turn to use, X-element is replaced with Fire, Ice, Lightning, Holy, or Dark)
Gibby: "I'd like to thank my many years at Dancing Academy..."
Locos Docos: "That's very useful for him."
Razor (GM): *Show cinematic of Gibby charging up his sword with Fire and slashing straight throw a Koopa, shell and all.*
Locos Docos: "As I said, I have enough to suffice if it doesn't suit me. But go ahead, as to not as you say... 'Look a gift horse in the mouth.'"
Alucard: "A decently impressive performance... though I didn't need to see what you had for lunch. I award you with TETRA SPIRIT!"
Razor (GM): Tetra Spirit: Darkness + Darkness + Doublecast + Add Foe + Add Foe + Add Foe.
Locos Docos: "..." *COUGH* "...Let's not send me against badly smelling rots of corpse of it..."
Alucard: "Razor! Your performance was quite impressive... though you lacked a certain style seen in fighters like Gibby and Yurie. Still, I award you with the secondary HELLFIRE spell." *Cue cutscene first of Locos summoning four spirits which slam into four enemies, then of Razor releasing a pair of black molten balls of fire which pound their way through a series of Goombas.*
Razor (GM): Hellfire (B): Fire + Fire + Darkness + Power Shot + Energy Beam + Multihit (Power Shot dominant, uses Ranged Attack roll, but hits in a line)
Locos Docos nods, and thanks for this decent multi-hit attack.
Yurie: "Yes sir?"
Alucard: "I was most certainly impressed by your skill, and you wield the Were Bane with great precision. I give you the spell DARK METAMORPHOSIS!"
Yurie bows, sweeping her sword to the side.
Razor (GM): *Cutscene of Yurie, injured, carving up a Goomba. When she's done, her wounds have healed!* Dark Metamorphosis: Any melee attack to an organic target heals the user for 30% HP, Partial Action to activate, lasts for ten rounds.
Garrick moves into the big room with the large cannon still over his shoulder. He doesn't look very happy for some reason. He glances to Alucard at the sound of his name...
Alucard: "Your skills with that weapon of yours are certainly above par. It's a shame I didn't get to see you use it more. I award you with the primary form of HELLFIRE!"
Razor (GM): Hellfire (A): Fire + Fire + Light + Power Shot + Maximize.
Razor (GM): *Cutscene of Garrick firing a trio of bright fireballs from his buster and BURNINATING a Zombie.*
Alucard: "Father Luthiel?"
Luthiel Moonlek gives a nod to Alucard. "Yes?"
Alucard: "You were brave to enter the confines of the castle alone. I grant you a new ability for use with your boomerang, the BOOMERANG CRASH!"
Luthiel Moonlek gives Alucard a bow. "Thank you."
Locos Docos: "So with this, I'd be able to hit up to seven enemies!"
Razor (GM): Boomerang Crash: Power Shot + Multi Hit + Add Foe + Add Foe + Add Foe.
Garrick: "...that it?"
Razor (GM): *Cutscene of Luthiel throwing his boomerang, at which point it splits and the multiple crosses begin to fly about, slamming into several enemies.*
Garrick: "Well, if that's everything, I gotta go sell this thing."
Razor (GM): Aribar will receive Soul Steal, Deloth will receive Wing Smash, and Metal will receive Hellfire (A).
Garrick hitches the cannon onto his shoulder a little more, then turns and makes for Dr. Light's lab.
Gibby is plumb tuckered out. He decides to hit the hay, and heads to his room.
Razor (GM): Light looks up from his work.
Dr. Light: "Ah, Garrick... what can I do for you?"
Garrick walks up to the empty table between then, then hoists the cannon forward and onto the table. It SLAMS into the table, causing the equipment around to shake slightly.
Razor (GM): Light freezes and instantly scoops up the Buster Cannon.
Dr. Light: "Where... where did you get this, Garrick?"
Dr. Light: "...this is..." He picks up the cannon and points the the M symbol... before flipping it over. "This is Wily's making!"
Razor (GM): Indeed... that squiggly line and M that had been seen on the buster and on the windows were Doctor Wily's trademark logo!
Garrick: "Right... well, if it's of use to you, it's yours."
Dr. Light: "...I'll have to examine it further... here..."
Razor (GM): He gives Garrick a whopping 750 Coins for it...
Garrick: "...there's something I wanted to ask you, though, doc."
Razor (GM): Light instantly begins looking the cannon over, brow furrowed. "Yes? What is it Garrick?"
Garrick: "Erm..." *He holds up his right hand, showing him the Z-Buster that's made it's home there for quite some time.*
Razor (GM): Light raises an eyebrow.
Dr. Light: "Yes?"
Garrick: "Well, you see, the thing is, I really like this cannon. A lot. But just this thing isn't going to be quite enough for the stuff to come, ya see. No offense or anything, I know you made it."
Dr. Light: "Hmmm... not according to what I've been told. They told me that you were able to dish out quite a bit of damage with that. That there is a quality weapon."
Garrick: "Blasting a trio of fish men is a lot easier than blasting Smithy."
Dr. Light: "Indeed..."
Garrick: "What I mean is, I wanted your advice for a secondary weapon. Something small, not quite as powerful, but enough for me to deal a soild punch of damage along with this."
Dr. Light: "Hmmm... well... are you looking for a ranged weapon?"
Garrick: "I don't use any other weapons... besides my fists and feet, that is. Ranged is what I am. Gunner."
Dr. Light: "Hmm... I was going to say... there is a saber that goes along with that buster of yours. Another Buster may work well... come back after I've finished examining this, and I'll have some options for you."
Garrick: "Right, thanks doc." *He turns on his heel and walks off, going to buy a few things.*
Dr. Light: "Anytime Garrick."
Metal Man (GM): Meanwhile...
Locos Docos pounds his fist on the computer monitor again, and gulps down his final Coca-cola. "Damnit! No results AGAIN. I friggin hate this confounded holo-Metal thing!"
Metal Man: "Well, you could occasionally give me something in return." *He walks in, as usual. His clone talks in sync.*
Locos Docos: "...Why does it sound like you're talking in two places at once?"
Metal Man: "Well, you know, that's more than a copy. It's linked to me."
Locos Docos: "What you mean...'give you something in return.' That's the biggest bunch of Lunarian regans I've ever heard!"
Metal Man: "Well, you know, it isn't free to get information."
Locos Docos: "...No bribe for you. Now anything happening today?"
Metal Man: "Well, let's see."
Locos Docos turns off the computer.
Metal Man (GM): Right on time, the Smash Dexes beep.
Smash Dex: "Mission briefing in Big Room."
Metal Man: "There is that."
Yurie is in the market as she pulls out her Dex. "...already?"
Locos Docos pops out Joel.
Aribar heads to the Big Room...
Locos Docos is wearing the belt he got from Digi whilst on the satellite still. He goes there manually instead of pressing the button.
Metal Man (GM): Mewtwo is there. Metal pops in from a hatch no one knew existed.
Mewtwo: "Hello, whoever has managed to come at such a late time. This is just something we discovered right now."
Locos Docos: "...It's late?"
Yurie: "Oh really?"
Metal Man (GM): Mewtwo points to a screen, which flicks on. It's Hyrule, which has black clouds and stuff.
Mewtwo: "Well... take a look at this."
Locos Docos shrugs.
Metal Man (GM): The camera moves in, showing... a huge crater in Hyrule Field.
Locos Docos: "Big deal; that happens from time to time."
Metal Man (GM): Embedded at the bottom is the satellite!
Aribar: "... So it is raining meteors in Hyrule... Let me get back to my Trance..."
Mewtwo: "Various monsters have been... appearing... from this satellite."
Locos Docos: "...The heartless?"
Mewtwo: "Are you sure you destroyed it completely? No... they are aliens..."
Yurie: "Lovely... I thought we did..."
Locos Docos nods...
Mewtwo: "All of the descriptions make no sense."
Locos Docos: "Not really."
Mewtwo: "Floating teeth, zombies, walking tin cans..."
Yurie: "...um... you think... that that crater might be a portal to the other world?"
Mewtwo: "Tales of people that are dead, but the only physical damage are teethmarks on head and/or back. ...And... it occasionally rains fire!"
Locos Docos: "...? ...The satellite rains fire?"
Mewtwo: "No... the skies do."
Yurie: "Okay... something's messed up..."
Mewtwo: "An after-effect of all that debris you destroyed. But still, freaky."
Yurie: "Has your scanning equipment picked up anything?"
Mewtwo: "We've picked up the same frequency as the warp rooms down there. That and this ongoing radio message."
Metal Man (GM): He turns on a radio.
???: "Hello. OMTAK. Hello. OMTAK. SmithySat is down. Propulsion damaged. Main Warp Established. OMTAK."
Mewtwo: "It continues spouting that gibberish at us. There's that, and Link vanished inside there. They sent him to deal with the monsters..."
Locos Docos: "...Could Smithy or the Heartless be responsible for this incident?"
Mewtwo: "Even with the Four Sword, it seems as if he is in danger. They can't be... you killed them! The fall should have killed everything inside it..."
Locos Docos: "Digi is known to survive, and Jeff has gotten away... No one else was there. Right?"
Mewtwo: "Yeah, but we tracked Jeff. He's far away. No where near the crash site. Digi apparently teleported away before possibly being killed."
Locos Docos: "Ganondorf isn't there, nor is Ganenod, right?"
Mewtwo: "Well, he's been terrorizing other places. He even tried to follow Link into the satellite. Some force field blocked him. He even had to flee, after being attacked by those monsters."
Locos Docos: "This doesn't makes sense... The heartless infested Ganondorf scared off by these monsters?"
Mewtwo: "Oh, and Hyrule Castle is under siege from these monsters. I can't even say if Lon Lon ranch is safe... They have limited their invasion, though."
Yurie: "Even Hyrule Castle?"
Mewtwo: "Only Hyrule Castle and the field can be accessed."
Locos Docos: "So Ganondorf was chased off?"
Locos Docos: "...That powerful freak chased off... Why send us?"
Mewtwo: "Since we heard of aliens, perhaps Samus coming with you should help."
Yurie: "Samus? Never heard of him..."
Samus: "I would appreciate it if you realized I am not a he."
Metal Man (GM): Samus walks in through a door.
Yurie blinks, then whirls around.
Locos Docos turns around.
Yurie: "Oh... um... heh." ^^0
Samus: "Now then. These... aliens... they sound familiar."
Locos Docos: "Ahh... the bounty hunter..."
Samus: "Although, not many of them are this intelligent."
Locos Docos: "I've read of your accomplishments."
Mewtwo: "That's why we also recruited Megaman..."
Samus: "...I still think it would be better if I did it myself..."
Locos Docos: "Not wise, Mrs. bounty hunter. These don't seem like the Space Pirates of the Mother Brain."
Mewtwo: "Now, with such a large force, you should be able to destroy all of these aliens and tin cans and... Ganondorf-defeating things... You may even find all four of Link."
Metal Man: "I would agree with Samus, but then again, the first and last time I did something by myself, I was killed."
Locos Docos: "They each must be as powerful as the Mother Brain with its body, though."
Yurie: "True... the lot of us are more than capable of defeating... whatever it is when we're together."
Locos Docos: "We couldn't even defeat Phantom... Or Ganondorf for that matter..."
Yurie: "Oh shut up... Of course we beat Ganondorf."
Locos Docos: "I mean the infested one. Perhaps if we have more backup power to seal these evil forces..."
Samus: "Seal them away? What is this, the dark ages?"
Yurie: "Well, in Hyrule it is..."
Locos Docos: "They are of a religious sort..."
Samus: "Why don't we just blow it all away?"
Locos Docos: "A wise man once said that..."
Samus: "If they actually KILLED this Ganondorf thing, perhaps they wouldn't have to live in fear all the time!"
Yurie: "..Miss Samus... does it look like we have some sort of doomsday anti-planet cannon or something here?"
Metal Man (GM): Samus gladly points to the cannon on her... right arm.
Samus: "Well, that's what you have me for."
Yurie: "...I meant on the base, not on you... well... that'll help." ^^
Locos Docos: "...Brute force... I thought you were also a thinker, Ms. Bounty Hunter. Let's just prepare for it tomorrow, and we'll kick ass then."
Yurie: "Yeah. I'd rather go there when the sun is out..."
Mewtwo: "Yes... we may have to address it again, too, as more information is found. But, just thought you should know."
Yurie looks at Samus. "...doesn't it get hot in that armor suit?"
Locos Docos: "Just reserve as much power as you can, Samus. That way, you'll be able to kick ass at even greater power."
Metal Man: "Why don't you ever ask me that? I've worn this suit for two years!"
Samus: "...Well, it does have temperature control system. Only when the Varia suit is broken do I have to worry about that."
Yurie: "Ah... what happens when you need to use the bathroom?"
Metal Man (GM): Samus smacks Yurie. @_@
Metal Man: "...At least you don't ask me that..."
Yurie: "Ow!" *She rubs her head gently.* "Sheesh, just curious." >.<
Metal Man: "Curiousity kills the--" *is hit by telekinetic punch.*
Mewtwo: "...I... HATE... that cliche..."
Metal Man: "...I think we all need to sleep... I couldn't imagine what the mission would be like this..."
Yurie nods and walks off. "Hm... what to buy..."
Metal Man (GM): The others except for Metal leave.
Metal Man: "Well, that's it for this briefing."
Megaman: "...Is it too late?"
Metal Man: "Yes."
Megaman: "And I was rehearsing my speech too!"
Metal Man: "...Save it for tomorrow."
