Super Smash Quest: Infinity - Story - Chapter 34: The QBs' Stand
Date: 4:51:35 PM, April 1st; 4:05:25 PM, April 4th, 2011.
Metal Man (GM): He holds up the cannon.
Mewtwo: "I've grown tired of standing back and letting these things happen. With any luck, it and any other would-be apocalypse-makers will have to answer to this."
Jet looks up curious. "What happens if this is the final one?"
Deloth: "...remember what happened the last time you tried to solve a problem by shooting it?"
Mewtwo: "I didn't shoot it... the Questers did." *He would shake his head.*
Agatha: "I'm sure this will all work out without fighting, or at least everyone beating up the root cause."
Deloth: "Well, usually, Quester/Brawler problem solving involves beating up at least one person."
Jason: *Laughs* "Sorry, Agatha, I'm doubting that one!"
Mewtwo: "In one sense, mindless fighting isn't the answer. In the other, someone is usually at fault and must be stopped."
Deloth: "Hence why I brought the Winchester, because I have a feeling that I'll get roped into this one."
Mewtwo: "The Questers are taking an extraordinarily long time..."
Jason: "Maybe something wrong with the gadgets."
Mewtwo: "I'll check..." *He puts a hand to his head.* "Hm... what is this?"
Dragoshi: "Either that, or alarm clocks aren't really all that effec... hm?"
Mewtwo: "A disturbance... multiple disturbances... ..."
Jason: "Uh ohhh..."
Dragoshi: "Hoo boy."
Jet looks up not amused. "What sort of disturbances?"
Metal Man (GM): The door in is opened, but not by anyone you know. Or is it? No... that's Evil Wolfman!
Deloth: *Let's see, shotgun in one hand, sword in the other. Yup.*
Jason: "Alright, let's rock."
Agatha: "... Mewtwo, when this is all over, I would advise hiring a team of psychics like you to keep a watch on things."
Garrickdex: "I'm not late, am I?"
Mewtwo: "You will not destroy the Stadium this time!"
Agatha puts away her knitting and lifts herself from the chair.
Garrickdex: "Whoa whoa whoa. I don't care about your stadium. That's chump change."
Deloth: "Alright, blow up or not?"
Garrickdex: "Now an entire dimension... maybe. A multiverse is more my taste."
Metal Man (GM): Evil Wolfman points the Garrickdex at Deloth.
Garrickdex: "Ah, Deloth. Back here to lose what's left of your mind?"
Dragoshi: "Oh. Huh."
Deloth: "Actually, therapy and medication's helped."
Garrickdex: "Just try to blow me up. C'mon, fire that cannon at me, Mewtwo."
Mewtwo: "... ..." *He shakes his head.* "Deloth is right. The cannon cannot be fired here."
Deloth: "I see that everyone else here that's not a Brawler is still bugfuck, which I guess is nice for familiarity."
Dragoshi: "I thought that kinda went without saying. On both counts."
Garrickdex: "...You're getting too smart for your own good, Mewtwo!"
Mewtwo: "The cannon can only destroy his barrier. If we did that now, we'd still have to fight him and... we don't have the numbers."
Dragoshi: "To say the least."
Deloth: *Del checks to see if he can blast the Dex to bits with his gun and go home for lunch.*
Garrickdex: "But of course. I have a simple bargain. All of the Brawlers die, then I leave you alone."
Metal Man (GM): There's a weird force field around Evil Wolfman. It flickers into view every so often.
Mewtwo: "And if I do not take this joke of a deal?"
Jason glances at the field.
Jet looks at Mewtwo and the others are planning to push or run.
Garrickdex: "Well, this time I kill all of you instead."
Deloth: "Nice shield."
Garrickdex: "I studied all the other villains you fought. The only one who won had a shield like this."
Agatha: .oO(Hey, Mewtwo, can you drop a portal under someone's feet? It would be a quick temp-fix.)
Garrickdex: "Figured it'd do the job. And hence why you're free to attack me all you want."
Mewtwo: *Telepathy* "Evil Wolfman moves through dimensions like we move through water. Not particularly effective against him."
Garrickdex: "So, why not? Go ahead and attack me. Once you're tired, I can finish off the Brawlers. Questers... ...ehhh... some other idiot was supposed to kill them, but he's already failed. As I planned."
Deloth: "I'll pass for now, thanks."
Jet: .oO(is the plan to flee or fight? I might be able to create some cover if we are retreating.)
Dragoshi: "I'm good."
Mewtwo: "I don't think we're going to attack you with that barrier. It's pointless, really."
Jason: *Laughs* "No, it's okay, I'll pass."
Evil Wolfman: "Well, then I'll just pick off those brawlers right now."
Metal Man (GM): He snaps his fingers and charges a plasma beam instantly.
Evil Wolfman: "Tell me, Jason, what should I tell your parents when they find your bones scattered across three different dimensions?"
Agatha: .oO(How about a portal to reflect the beam at him?)
Metal Man (GM): Mewtwo seems to be concentrating on something.
Mewtwo: *T* "A defensive measure at best, he still has that force field... I'm thinking..."
Jason: "Oh, my friends and family wouldn't like that either."
Deloth: "Drop it, buddy, you've got a veteran on your ass."
Evil Wolfman: "I'll let them know they don't like that idea."
Agatha: .oO(Hmm, I know it would not totally work, but it would be a good distraction. I'll let you get back to thinking.)
Evil Wolfman: "What are you going to do, Deloth. Attack me?" *He grins. Trollfaec grin.*
Agatha offers some tea to Deloth.
Dragoshi: "No, clearly."
Agatha: "Green or Orange dear?"
Dragoshi: "He was going to honk in varying tones."
Deloth: "Hey, if that's what it takes. Green, please."
Agatha: "Sure" *Hands it over.*
Evil Wolfman: "..." *He shakes his head.* "I will definitely have to encase Dragoshi in a terrarium, so I can listen to his commentary as I take over the universe."
Agatha: "Jason, Dragoshi, would you like some?"
Dragoshi: "In an attempt to drive you paranoid with the basest of all primal fears. Honking. ...Oh! Sure."
Evil Wolfman: "But first... I have a special delivery for Jason."
Agatha hands some over.
Metal Man (GM): He fires a massive plasma beam at Jason.
Deloth: *Del tosses Durandal to his shotgun hand, holding both at once and aiming to try and block the beam for Jason.*
Dragoshi sips and nods in thanks.
Metal Man (GM): The beam is too powerful; it pierces through everything. Including something unusual. Something warps in the middle of the beam out of nowhere.
???: "I will save y-ARGH!!!"
Metal Man (GM): A person collapses on the floor with a hole in them. As Jason would also take 150 piercing damage.
Deloth: "Oh, not this again." *sip*
Dragoshi: "...Huh. It must be raining otherworldly interlopers."
Agatha: "... Hey, new guy, if you're alive I have some tea that will perk you up."
Digifanatic: *Yeah, 1 RES point on that.*
Metal Man (GM): Piercing, it goes through your resistance point. It even went through whoever that was on the floor. Two resistance points can halve the damage.
Digifanatic: *Yeah, then that.*
Agatha passes Digifanatic cup after cup of healing tea to Digi.
Metal Man (GM): The new guy stands up, covered in blood.
Agatha: "Keep drinking dear."
Metal Man (GM): It's Metal Man, holding the wound.
Metal Man: "This has gone entirely too far, fake Wolfman!"
Deloth: "Hey, Metal." *sip*
Evil Wolfman: "And... you have a say on it how?"
Mewtwo: "Metal Man? But you..."
Agatha hands Metal a cup of tea in a mug with a cola logo on it.
Jet asks "Can I get a green tea?" he says as he looks over the situation once more.
Metal Man: "I betrayed you all, multiple times, but that doesn't mean I'm going to... urk... stand around and let this guy destroy the planet."
Jason takes some tea if he can.
Agatha passes over some tea to Jet.
Evil Wolfman: "Well, you can join the death, by all means."
Dragoshi: "Alright, then." *Sip.*
Metal Man (GM): He fires another beam at Metal Man.
Metal Man: "Argh!"
Dragoshi: "Have you sent anyone else an RSVP to this death party or no?"
Metal Man (GM): He falls onto the ground, dropping the cup.
Dragoshi: "...hm, is that even the right term?"
Evil Wolfman: "No. It's my SPECIAL death party."
Metal Man (GM): Metal Man is on the floor, burning and bleeding a bit, as Evil Wolfman steps over his body.
Dragoshi: "I wasn't asking you, but. I guess that answer will work all the same." *Sip.*
Metal Man (GM): Jason would have the tea, all right. But he'd also have Evil Wolfman in his grill.
Evil Wolfman: "You can and will get in my way. So I will just have to end you."
Jet takes the tea and tries to take a couple steps back.
Jason: "I wasn't even touching you..." *Glares.*
Mewtwo: "We have to do something about this other than tea..."
Metal Man: "I thought I could fix it, I swear! This doesn't -urk- happen!"
Agatha would walk over to Metal Man on the floor while Wolfman is distracted and start pouring Tea down his throat. (Using healing tea 27/HP per 8 TP as much as possible on metal~)
Evil Wolfman: "No one ever got a deus-ex-machina piercing laser beam?"
Metal Man: "Dammit!"
Metal Man (GM): It'd help, but Agatha would also notice that Metal Man has a bunch of HP to go. He's just a bit warp-drunk, apparently.
Deloth: "I've got a sword and slugs, if that helps."
Evil Wolfman: "Now that you've had your last meal--"
Metal Man: "You... willl... DIE... for pretending to be Wolfman!"
Metal Man (GM): Metal Man punches Evil Wolfman. *DEFLECT.*
Dragoshi: "I've got... lessee..."
Agatha: "Drink up dear, we might need you to block another shot..."
Metal Man (GM): It bounces into his face and he flies backwards into a wall.
Evil Wolfman: "That's what the barrier does, fool."
Metal Man: "Gah! You're not supposed to have a barrier! You're a villain! That means you're stupid!"
Metal Man (GM): He's waiting for Jason to finish his tea. Has Jason finished his tea?
Agatha refills his cup.
Mewtwo: "...We can't get past the barrier."
Dragoshi: "Lessee... several guns, two swords, a gavel... and some bread. Yeah, I've got nothing."
Jason: *Probably not, the way EW's looking at him.*
Evil Wolfman: "Hm... you're right... I shouldn't harm Jason yet... he's too popular."
Metal Man (GM): He looks at Agatha and smirks.
Evil Wolfman: "There's a tale that says I should eat you alive."
Agatha: "Yes, but the heartburn after would be killer."
Evil Wolfman: "Then I just need to find Kit and it can be complete."
Dragoshi: "That doesn't sound very healthy."
Jason shakes his head.
Deloth: "My, Grandma, what low morals you have." *Del steps in front of Agatha--*
Dragoshi: "Actually, wouldn't you need a woodcutter?"
Deloth: "...you are not touching Kit."
Evil Wolfman: "Autumnus has her. You should go talk to him. Of course, I was going to kill him, but if you want her to stay with him, I guess I can't stop you."
Deloth: *And there's that low fire in his eyes.* "Why does he have her?"
Agatha sits in a chair and starts knitting.
Evil Wolfman: "She's a pawn in his Time Cop machinations, to help control Panzer."
Agatha: "Step on, carry the stitch~"
Jet starts to cast... but sees Del's action and decides to slide further back. He tries to direct a thought to Mewtwo. .oO(Any idea on how to get out of this mess, or escape out?)
Deloth: "She never informed me of any of this."
Mewtwo: *T* "I'm going to suggest you slip out while this goes on. He's after Brawlers..."
Evil Wolfman: "She and Panzer drank a lot lately too, I think. You should ask her about it, I only felt it on the edges of my omniscience. You should get your friends to move into your bar. It's only this realm I'm after."
Jet keeps walking backwards. .oO(Fair enough. I could try to create a quick distraction as I fly out the door, but I can just sneak out.)
Agatha: .oO(Deloth, don't worry about me dear, Two deaths and I learned a little surprise. Feel free to go save Kit.)
Deloth: "That's it, you're going down." *Del brandishes his weapons, standing protectively in front of the Brawlers.*
Evil Wolfman: "If you insist." *He laughs.*
Metal Man: "Watch out for his face, it reflects things."
Evil Wolfman: "I may as well have some amusements before I kill my targets."
Dragoshi: "Mirrorfaces have to be awkward, though."
Deloth: *He looks back to the others.* "Get out of here and take the warp to the Dragon's Den."
Dragoshi: "Especially when looking into a mirror because then everything just starts to look the same."
Evil Wolfman: "..." *He waggles a finger.* "Go ahead, warp. I dare you." *He makes an odd gesture, and the lights flicker.*
Jet as he reaches the door, he casts a cloud of ash behind EW, and uses the rebounding energy to send him flying down the hallway. (Blowback, moving in the direction of the warp)
Mewtwo: "...Evacuate the building, Brawlers. Our safety is important to finishing this. Not the Stadium's."
Metal Man (GM): He would then go to leave and lead the Brawlers out of the building.
Agatha would follow Mewtwo, taking a firm grab of Deloth's arm~
Evil Wolfman: "Naturally you won't get far. The warps have now been plugged."
Jason follows Mewtwo.
Dragoshi walks on behind.
Agatha: "Come along dear, you can be my wood-cutter later."
Jason: "He's not gonna listen to you, Agatha..."
Metal Man (GM): Metal Man would get in the way of Agatha's grab.
Metal Man: "No! We must fight this thing like Questers! You run away now."
Deloth: "I can't sacrifice your lives for mine. That's not a fair trade. Just tell Lai and Alexia that I may be... late."
Dragoshi: "You'd need a few more baseball cards, first."
Agatha gives Deloth a hug, another cup of tea and a kiss on the cheek.
Dragoshi: "But no, seriously."
Metal Man: "You will get your chance to sacrifice for the stadium, if that is what Mewtwo wants you to do, but not now. We musn't allow this fake Wolfman to mock us!"
Jet sips down the tea as he runs, and follows Mewtwo.
Agatha: "Good luck dear, if you die I'll be dragging your soul up from wherever it goes."
Mewtwo: "..." *He'd shake his head.* "Nothing I know is right anymore, is it..."
Agatha turns around and follows Mewtwo without Deloth.
Mewtwo: "Consider this your redemption, Questers." *He'd float off, while Evil Wolfman laughs some more.*
Evil Wolfman: "Worthless sentiment. You're not even a group anymore."
Dragoshi: "...Might as well stay behind. I'd feel rather guilty leaving you guys behind, to be honest. Besides... I think I've lived a good life."
Metal Man: "...Normally, I'd begin telling you what to do, but to be honest, my best laid plan failed. I think fate's not on our side anymore."
Dragoshi: "And, I... am okay with that. As with many things now."
Evil Wolfman: "You will die for a silly idea, like knights charging at musketeers. Fine enough with me. Let us begin!"
Metal Man (GM): BATTLE
Deloth: "The day that standing up for what's right is called a 'silly idea' is the day that will live in infamy as the most inaccurate thing ever uttered."
Dragoshi: "The term 'silly idea' is pretty much beaten beyond death anyways."
Evil Wolfman: "In the world I will make, your foolish 'correct' ideas will become wrong!"
Deloth: "Morality's beyond a simple 'correct' or 'incorrect'. It's ingrained in nature, and nobody can hope to change it."
Evil Wolfman: "Whatever you say, Sigmund Freud."
Metal Man (GM): Order: Evil Wolfman, Dragoshi, Metal Man, Deloth.
Evil Wolfman: "What is correct? What is not? I will soon become master of this domain. I can make anything true and anything false then. I killed an entire set of Questers for defying me. A few more from another dimension shouldn't hurt."
Deloth: *chuckle* "Honestly, it's the same old song and dance over and over."
Dragoshi: "Same old shit, different day. Hell, it might just be the same day over and over and I don't even know it."
Deloth: "You can remix the record, but it's still going to be the same song at the end of the dance."
Evil Wolfman: "That is why I also intend to control the record player."
Metal Man (GM): He laughs and then summons... four elemental crystals. He glows four elements, growing stronger.
Evil Wolfman: "Four elemental crystals of planetary power, I channel your power." *He then holds another hand up.* "Stars of the Cosmo, I channel your power!"
Metal Man (GM): He becomes surrounded by yet another barrier on top of his current one. The barrier powers up and fires six lasers at Deloth. 90 damage... then 60 more, due to the crystals empowering it. He then becomes enveloped in electricity.
Evil Wolfman: "The same song and dance will occur, but I will say when and where it happens. SHOCKWAVE."
Metal Man (GM): Threatens all. Metal Man leaps over it. 80 damage, stun x3 if you're hit... which no one is.
Evil Wolfman: "Good... you aren't entirely off your game." *He chuckles.* "I'd hate to have an easy battle."
Deloth: *Del easily hops it, landing gracefully.*
Metal Man: "We have to get through... that entire mess of barriers... ...but how?"
Metal Man (GM): *Checks device* "He can't be teleported OR have objects teleported into him..."
Deloth: "Magnetism or electricity?"
Dragoshi: "Good question... Don't think I have anything pertaining to that, unfortunately."
Metal Man: "Maybe, but he just summoned a mess of electricity... magnetism? Hmmm... if only I had a giant magnet..."
Dragoshi: "I only have Ele, of all things."
Evil Wolfman: "You shall simply die like the Questers of my realm."
Metal Man: "Shoot a magnet ele at his brain?"
Dragoshi: "Freakin' Eles. How do they work? But... sure. Got nothing better to do."
Metal Man: "Giant invisible gears in the air! ...No, I don't actually know how they work."
Dragoshi: *And that was how three magnet eles were sent flying wolfwards.*
Metal Man (GM): They fly at his barrier and hit... the cosmic energy... which eats it.
Evil Wolfman: "One point for creativity. Zero points for failing to hit me."
Metal Man: "It's that exterior barrier he has. It blocked it. I don't know if the other barrier he always has would."
Evil Wolfman: "You won't last that long."
Dragoshi: "Eh. Nothing new to me."
Evil Wolfman: "Join me, Metal Man. Join Panzer. Join Locos. Do whatever you want. Betray them all."
Metal Man: "You're not the real Wolfman, and for that alone you must die. I don't care for the Stadium that much, but you're a fake and I cannot accept a fake Wolfman in my world!"
Evil Wolfman: "Pathetic."
Metal Man: "Oh yeah?" *He takes out a random object.* "DIEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!"
Metal Man (GM): He takes out a Sword of Light replica. Evil Wolfman briefly double-takes as it then smacks his field, damaging Metal Man. And deflecting off of the barrier underneath, though it did get 'through' that top field.
Evil Wolfman: "...2 points, for hitting me. 0 points for creativity."
Metal Man (GM): Metal Man shakes electricity off his hand.
Metal Man: "Gah! What is this, some Jenga Puzzle On Crack?"
Evil Wolfman: "What's the matter... no longer able to corrode reality so you're always right?"
Metal Man (GM): Metal Man shakes his fist again, but, having no other plans, defends...
Deloth: "Eat this." *Del grabs Durandal and aims a series of crackling sword slashes at Wolfman.*
Metal Man (GM): He stands there and lets it hit. The field deals 15 damage; electricity goes through the outer barrier, but not the wonder-barrier beneath it.
Evil Wolfman: "What kind of villain plays non-rigged games, anyway?"
Deloth: "The one I was hoping you'd be, mostly."
Dragoshi: "One that doesn't bore people to death so hard that they become zombies and get re-bored to death. Obviously."
Evil Wolfman: "I have the slots in my favor. You hit me one way and it is absorbed. You hit me the other way and it is blocked. I am unstoppable. And you are foolish."
Dragoshi: "You say that last line as if we haven't heard it a million times before. And the one before that, too. I swear, broken records everywhere..."
Evil Wolfman: "You see, in my realm, it was the Questers who were records, and broken. So what you're saying is not new to me, either."
Dragoshi: "Then we're both eternally old to eachother."
Evil Wolfman: "I know it annoys you. So I will simply annoy you to death."
Dragoshi: "Beautiful. Absolutely beautiful."
Deloth: "Hang on, guys, I'm gonna try to pull some energy for a spell."
Dragoshi: "It's like a miracle of brokenness!"
Metal Man: "Go ahead, it doesn't look like brute force will get it."
Metal Man (GM): *Glow.*
Evil Wolfman: "An interesting spell, whatever you used."
Metal Man: "So this is what being enchanted by a spell feels like."
Evil Wolfman: "This battle bores me. Let me end your boredom."
Metal Man (GM): He holds out a palm, which glows green.
Dragoshi: "Well, at least our boredom's mutual."
Evil Wolfman: "ANNIHILATION!"
Metal Man (GM): The green energy flies out--it's Razor's old attack! ...Aaand it bounces off a weird field on the Questers.. ..Then it bounces into Evil Wolfman's own field. And is eaten.
Evil Wolfman: "..."
Dragoshi: "..." *He snickers* "Take 2? And cull me in the morning?"
Deloth: "..." *smirk*
Evil Wolfman: "Let me take a pocket from your Dragoshi book."
Metal Man (GM): He glows evily. Suddenly, a magitek mech appears behind him.
Metal Man (GM): Then an image of Julian with his hammer. Then the Deathmachine.
Dragoshi: "So, where's the stones?"
Metal Man (GM): Then, out of nowhere, Touhou music and a bullet hell fighter's HUD.
Evil Wolfman: "ULTIMATE... SUPER... BULLET HELL ANNIHILATION!!!"
Dragoshi: "Oh, come on! You can put the effort in getting all of that."
Metal Man (GM): The mech opens fire... Julian flails around with the hammer... it rains pottery, cheese wheels, and dining sets... Threatens all. Ahhhhhh!!!!
Metal Man: "AHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!"
Metal Man (GM): Partially, you can resist half of it. He got uber lucky, so normal damage is 333. You can resist half of it for 1 resist point. It becomes 151 damage if you resist it. Which does, amusingly enough, cause a large explosion to block some of the projectiles. Metal Man takes the brunt of it. Good thing he's made out of armor.
Deloth: *Del goes ahead and uses a bomb to help get through Wolfman's danmaku. You will not ruin MY 1-credit run!*
Dragoshi braces for impact, getting sent flying back, having taken an immense blow, but, ah... He's still in one piece! Hooray for RES power!
Metal Man (GM): He's sparking, burning, and has a vase embedded in his chest.
Metal Man: "You... evil... plagiarist!"
Evil Wolfman: "You should be honored. Both you and Dragoshi were good choices for my Quester-based Melee Moves. I will have to research that reflect attack... I nearly wound up reflecting that attack back into myself, and that would not have been as fun."
Dragoshi: "No, that would've been exceptionally fun."
Metal Man (GM): Then, to add annoyance to injury, the annoying lasers o' piercing from his barrier continue shooting at... Dragoshi. 90 piercing damage if hit. Piercing; costs double points to res. Metal Man shakes a fist.
Dragoshi gets blasted by even more death and destruction, but still survives. He's kind of a colossal mess now, though.
Metal Man: "You cannot kill us! We're Questers! ...I'm not... but whatever!"
Dragoshi: "He's putting up a good effort though, to say the least."
Evil Wolfman: "To be honest, doing this could become a new sport of mine. Maybe I don't need to kill you... just continually destroy and resurrect you."
Metal Man (GM): Evil Wolfman has more time to attack, but apparently is now trolling you, as he needlessly cures himself, Digi-style.
Evil Wolfman: "You almost got me there. But now my cape is in perfect condition again."
Metal Man: "...That's it... ...push him somewhere?"
Dragoshi: "Push him where, if I may ask?"
Metal Man: "...I haven't gotten that far yet in the plan I'm trying to think of."
Metal Man: "Being unable to just dimension-fu him away is hampering all my awesome incredible super-ideas."
Evil Wolfman: "One more turn, then I destroy you all!"
Metal Man: "Normally I'd say that was another old trite saying, but I begin to fear if it is actually possible this time around..."
Dragoshi: "...Yeah, I've, uh. Honestly got nothing. Sorry, guys."
Metal Man: "Don't worry. I have..."
Deloth: "Shove him into Hell? I dunno."
Metal Man (GM): He turns on his dimensional device.
Metal Man: "...To attempt dimensional-fu, because otherwise I, too, am out of ideas!"
Metal Man (GM): He menaces Evil Wolfman with the clock, then pushes a button.
Evil Wolfman: "Really?"
Metal Man: "Time Machine! Erase the damage from that attack!"
Metal Man (GM): *WARP* ...The destruction from the bullet hell attack goes away. The spent resistance points return. The HQ even is repaired by time going backwards.
Evil Wolfman: "...I can just do it again, you know."
Metal Man: "...I was hoping it'd do more than that... Time stopper!"
Metal Man (GM): He points the device at Evil Wolfman. Suddenly, time itself distorts violently. Metal Man's arm explodes, throwing sparks everywhere. He falls over, crispy-fried.
Dragoshi: "...And now we're back at square one... Minus an arm."
Metal Man (GM): Evil Wolfman's field is now flickering?!?
Evil Wolfman: "...Dammit. I thought you'd thrown that thing away."
Metal Man: "Gack... ...no one takes a Time Bandit's device away for long! Hit him... with... objects!"
Metal Man (GM): Metal Man then passes out for a bit.
Evil Wolfman: "So... this one person is going to somehow kill me before I destroy all of you in a supermassive black hole. Let's see deus ex machina figure THAT out."
Deloth: "Objects..." "..." *Del runs in and attempts to cleave Wolfman in half in one final strike at him.*
Metal Man (GM): He stands there. It hits him dead in the noggin. It deals 250 damage. Evil Wolfman, however, is... somehow... just standing there. Your 250 damage... just put one scratch on the bridge of his nose. It's like he's solid depleted uranium or something insanely superdense.
Evil Wolfman: "Not bad. If I were one-thousandth the monster I am, you might have killed me. However, it has become clear that killing you would actually be... a bad idea."
Evil Wolfman: "Dragoshi is plagued by a life in which everything is a rerun, and he is eternally apathetic. Death would be merciful."
Evil Wolfman: "Metal Man... is plagued by no one trusting him, and always being on the run, and being the pathetic also-run in any contest he's in. Death would, again, be merciful."
Deloth: "..." *Del tries one last thing--draining Wolfman's energy to try and eat the field.*
Evil Wolfman: "...And Deloth's happiness is tied to a girl whose fate is doomed by Autumnus, a being I cannot even begin to touch."
Metal Man (GM): Deloth would become full of energy--fully healed, yadda yadda... ...the field would continue blinking on and off as it does. Evil Wolfman would blink, himself.
Evil Wolfman: "You have tried hard, and you are no slouches. However, my mission is to kill Brawlers. You can die later."
Metal Man (GM): He makes a force field blocking the way to him, then walks off... towards the others. Metal Man stumbles up, furious.
Metal Man: "N-argh! You can't do this! Without an honorable death or having gotten something in on you... this... this..."
Metal Man (GM): Dr. Light would stumble in, his hair on fire.
Deloth: "Leave him, Metal."
Dr. Light: "I'm afraid you can't touch him... he's 256 times denser than steel. But all is not lost. I will figure out how to warp us to help the Brawlers. And I obtained contact with the Questers."
Metal Man: "Huh?"
Dr. Light: "If everyone attacks him as he is now, then there is still a chance his extremely dense frame will simply be destroyed by brutal, overwhelming power. Then there will be no more Evil Wolfman."
Metal Man: "...Okay... I'll just rest here..." *Falls over again.*
Dr. Light: "Deloth! ...You came back?"
Dragoshi: "He has, apparently."
Deloth: "Yeah, for a visit. I didn't expect to have to get in a fight."
Dragoshi: "I also dropped in to see how everyone was doing, yeah."
Dr. Light: "...Your powers may be able to help us one last time. We must combine our abilities to overcome Evil Wolfman's one extremely powerful super-power: indestructibility. Tell me, what magics do you have, Deloth?"
Metal Man (GM): Metal Man mumbles under his breath, still scratching at the barrier, apparently infuriated that a 'fake Wolfman' could evade his wrath.
Dragoshi: "We can get him later, Metal."
Deloth: "Magics? Like, any of them?"
Metal Man: "...I'll... I'll eat him apart... I'll stick celery up his nose... I'll bite his nose off... ... ...okay." *He finally sits there, although still fuming.*
Dragoshi: "I'm a bit miffed about not getting to knock a little sense into him myself, but. This gives us time to regroup."
Dr. Light: "Yes. Particularly, ones involving barriers. And time/space."
Dragoshi: "To regroup... And tear him in half!"
Deloth: "Well, for barriers, I've got Tetrakarn and Makarakarn..."
Dr. Light: "I noticed Makarakarn. What does Tetrakarn do?"
Deloth: "Reflects a single physical attack... let's see, what else... Tetraja, which blocks one instant-kill spell like Death... For time and space... uh..." *Del shuts his eyes and thinks, groaning.* "I'm not fully sure. Those were never my specific forte. I'm sure I could come up with some back home if you need them. What do you need, in particular?"
Dr. Light: "Barriers, actually. The cannon covers offense. Metal Man, if he didn't wreck his machine, covers time. I'm not sure if we'll encounter any space wielders, but they would be useful. I heard Garrick may be able to aid us. Hopefully he will come in time."
Dragoshi: "Yeah. Someone with spatial capabilities would be rather helpful, all things considered."
Dr. Light: "In any case, let's... make you no longer injured."
Metal Man (GM): He'd hand out Megaman Energy capsules to heal your wounds. Metal Man would stand up, then stare at his arm.
Metal Man: "Gah... it's out of juice!"
Dragoshi: "...Yeah, that's a bit of a problem."
Dr. Light: "..." *Hands Metal Man weapon energy.*
Metal Man: "What? Where did you get this? How is this possible?"
Dr. Light: "We've been building time displacement devices since Flash Man was invented."
Dragoshi: "Makes sense."
Deloth: "I'm okay. I drained his barrier for health."
Metal Man: "As long as it doesn't cause me to wear a trenchcoat, I guess I can use it."
Metal Man (GM): He plugs it in and it works... mostly.
Metal Man: "...Think I'll have to go back to my ship to restore the rest. Uhhh... you guys okay?"
Metal Man (GM): The barrier in the way vanishes.
Dragoshi: "And I think I'm alright due to time shenanigans. I think."
Metal Man: "Because if so, then I should get ready and... I guess if time works oddly in your world, Deloth, you could probably warp there and come back once everyone is here... I'd help the Brawlers but there's barriers as far as my scanners can see. It's up to them to last a bit longer before we help finish this."
Dr. Light: "I will continue work on the machinery I plan to bring into battle. Mega Man may not be here, but that doesn't mean I'm useless."
Dragoshi: "Anything I might be able to try and assist with or should I go back to the Brawlers? To be honest, I kinda feel like I'd just get in the Brawlers' way at the moment."
Deloth: "Any way I can help while I'm out?"
Dr. Light: "Try to master another barrier spell or something like it. We'll need everything we can get for the final battle. It isn't a Wily machine we're facing. It's a brutal super-dense Reploid construct that has studied all of the past battles we've had."
Dragoshi: "We're going to need everything we've got and more, to say the least."
Dr. Light: "It's almost like fighting a planet-sized being... who takes up only the space of a person. It shouldn't be possible. Physics says it isn't. But somehow, he exists."
Dragoshi: "Now if only he was a planet, then we could also just stuff a few ultra high-yield explosives in some fissures and crannies."
Deloth: "Hmm... So, time/space and barriers... got it. I'll work on it as much as I can."
Dr. Light: "Yes. Good luck, Deloth." *And with that, he walks away.*
Metal Man (GM): Metal Man presses buttons on his device.
Metal Man: "I will return once the barriers clear. Then we can take that thing out once and for all!"
Dragoshi: "Alright. See you then, Metal."
Metal Man: "See you too, fellow person-hit-by-vases!"
Metal Man (GM): He salutes, then vanishes into thin air.
Deloth: "Good luck, guys. Did everyone evacuate safely?"
Metal Man (GM): Mack would glance in.
Mack: "So far as aye see, yeh."
Dragoshi: "Good to hear, then."
Mack: "They'll have ta hide a bit longehr thoo. Evil Wolfman be chasin' them down that barried way we can nae get too. Aye theenk they can taake it, hopefullee."
Dragoshi: "Probably for the best, then."
Deloth: "Do you know where they went? Did Wolfman scramble the warp?"
Mack: "Down theee way." *He points down the path.* "He put barriers everywheere, eh. They be vanishin' every fifteen minutes... it'll be aboot an hour before we kin reech them. The warp back to yer homeworld will work, but ta warp into tha area they went... it's blocked just like ye kin't git in there by walkin'."
Mack: "The onlee good thin' is you people did a numba on his energee... methinks he'll be a bit less indestructible when dey see 'im!"
Dragoshi: "We also brought them a little time, to say the least. Sorry I couldn't have done more, though, but... Yeah."
Mack: "It be okay. Nobodee kin seem to dent that bugger."
Deloth: "Well, while I can on Chorrus, I'll study up on time and barrier magic. Hopefully I can have a timestop waiting for when he gets back."
Dragoshi: "Yeah, you've got a bit of a point, there. Alright, then. Good luck with that. Either way, when the time comes, I'll be sure to give him a face full of fire."
Mack: "Good luck te yeh, I'm gonna be readin' dees books th' Questahs brought back from Alsah!" *He holds an old 'Activate' spell book in his hand.*
Dragoshi: "...Ah! Right. I keep meaning to learn new spells, but never really got around to it... What else do you have there?"
Deloth: "Thanks. I'm gonna warp back for now." *Del heads for the warp back home.*
Metal Man (GM): Mack waves, then gets to spells.
Mack: "I goot most of yeh tier 2 spells heah."
Dragoshi: "Excellent. I've been meaning to learn some of those, but I never got around to it."
Metal Man (GM): Naturally the mechanic is the same as always. That one is liable to be one of the most important, ironically, given how many times Evil Wolfman is liable to near-kill people. Hi Garrick. Oh yeah, EXP...
Metal Man (GM): +3 EXP to Agatha and Jet and Jason; +7 to Dragoshi... Metal Man and Deloth are kind of legacy characters so it doesn't do much for them. Recap. The Brawlers were at HQ while the Questers were out with 'Dr. Light', supposedly making Lighttech. Of course that was a trick. And then Evil Wolfman marched right into HQ and began attacking people. The Brawlers fled as a number of Questers made a 'last stand', although to both side's boredom. Evil Wolfman was too invincible and the Questers too jaded for either side to really get much out of the fight. Ultimately Evil Wolfman decided that his main plan was to destroy the far less jaded Brawlers, and walled off the 'boringly tough' Questers as he chased them. The Brawlers are a ways from the Stadium now, down the same dirt path which led a ways away from the Stadium, near Mt. Questmore, or the destroyed ruins of it, anyway. Evil Wolfman is approaching. Mewtwo is there with the Brawlers, holding the cannon... Continuation
Mewtwo: "...I can tell something happened, Brawlers. That field... isn't working like it used to. Like someone damaged it in that lull before Evil Wolfman came here."
Evil Wolfman: *Yelling from the distance* "Eeny Miney Moe, I smell the blood of foolish Brawler foes!"
Jason: .oO(Oh, cheesy nursery rhyme parodies? Meh.)
Mewtwo: "We can possibly get out of this, Brawlers, but it's going to take some discipline. It is time to test what I have been training you for."
Starr: "He needs a better hobby. Like knitting. Knitting is a good hobby..." >.<
Mewtwo: "You must hide in the ruins of Mt. Questmore as I confront him."
Mewtwo: "His barrier is already damaged, so we are on better footing than before. The time is not yet to attack. Not for you, anyway. If you can manage to stay hidden, until I give the signal, then we can most likely stall him until help arrives."
Jason: *Another nod* "Okay then."
Kraela: "Yes, mommy."
Starr: "Yes sir."
Mewtwo: "Now is not the time to be sarcastic. A single mistake and he may kill us all. Now go... hide!" *He points to the massive boulders.*
Jason: "Right." *Runs up to the ruins and hides behind the boulders.*
Starr: *She nods and goes for the ruins, as told. Keeping her head down.*
Metal Man (GM): Evil Wolfman continues getting closer... but is deliberately walking slowly.
Kraela runs for the ruins as well.
Evil Wolfman: "You've lost a great many of Brawlers since you began them as an organization... you won't succeed now."
Metal Man (GM): Evil Wolfman walks into view.
Evil Wolfman: "You think you can take me? Even with my barrier malfunctioning, you cannot destroy me."
Mewtwo: "I've learned that these matters are more than just brute force, Evil Wolfman."
Evil Wolfman: "But they are!"
Metal Man (GM): He fires a beam directly at Mewtwo. Mewtwo generates a barrier, and it is blocked.
Mewtwo: "You already have played this game before. I now know the wavelength your moves are on."
Evil Wolfman: "Clever, but in my world, I was the one who had the brains, not you."
Metal Man (GM): Mewtwo fires a Shadow Ball at him, but it bounces off of what remains of Evil Wolfman's barrier.
Evil Wolfman: "Such incredible guts you have. The better for you to kill yourself fighting an impossible battle with."
Metal Man (GM): Yes, Krae. Although the Brawlers will do something just now, I only need one or two. Something odd happens. Mewtwo sends a telepathic message to the Brawlers.
Mewtwo: *T* "One of you throw a rock at his head, while the other focuses their melee energy so I can use it. He won't expect that either."
Metal Man (GM): Mewtwo acts strangely calm, as he floats directly towards Evil Wolfman.
Mewtwo: "This meaningless dialogue demeans us both. One of us will die today, and it will not be determined by who has the best lines."
Jason nudges Starr's shoulder.
Evil Wolfman: "What?"
Metal Man (GM): He goes to say something, then a rock beans him in the head.
Jason: *And he starts focusing for Mewtwo.*
Metal Man (GM): He would turn to nuke Starr, but Mewtwo would then channel the energy from Jason. Suddenly the cannon would light up and fire an immensely loud cone of sound, based off of a few notes from Mozart's music.
Jason: *Mutters to himself* "Oh, I like that..."
Metal Man (GM): Jason would wind up using 1 SP with this, but it'd be worth it, as Evil Wolfman is now dazed, with small notes floating around his head as he thrashes at invisible people.
Evil Wolfman: "You! Using a dirty trick! You're too dumb to do that! You're not Doopliss, are you? ARE YOU?" *He smashes a boulder angrily, while Mewtwo gestures for the Brawlers to follow him in running further away, up the mountain.*
Metal Man (GM): And would also begin floating up there quickly himself.
Evil Wolfman: "Grrr... you have learned too much from destroying your own world and somehow rebuilding it, Mewtwo. I will not hold back this time."
Metal Man (GM): He begins staggering back into a path that would bring him closer to the Brawlers et Mewtwo. Better get moving, Brawlers.
Starr: *She's running again!* =D
Jason follows, bringing with Kraela with him.
Evil Wolfman: "Don't you know? Don't you realize? I have read The Book. I know how this world functions. The only way you could win would be to act out of character... to risk destroying your world like you did before. You're doomed to lose to me, because the pages of this book told me... told me you would always mindlessly fight to the death. Told me you were all fools who only knew force. You cannot escape. Either you die by me, or you risk destroying the world anew!"
Metal Man (GM): He snarls and climbs up a rock face, nearing Mewtwo and the Brawlers again.
Mewtwo: "Only a fool thinks in absolutes. I once did. But I got a second chance. For some freakish reason, so did you, but it seems that chance was wasted." *He then gestures... to Kraela? Telepathic to Kraela* "Stab his hand on the cliff with your sword."
Kraela: *Kraela does as asked, stabbing down on Evil Wolfman's hand with her nodachi.*
Evil Wolfman: "You've changed, Mewtwo. I dare say... The Void has--" *CHONK.*
Metal Man (GM): The ground slips out of his right hand. He holds on with his left claw. Oddly, Mewtwo grabs that claw with his mind and hoists him up.
Mewtwo: "The Void never existed, thanks to his own behavior. You wish to join him, right?"
Evil Wolfman: "Let's see you twist this beam into something you like then!"
Metal Man (GM): Mewtwo is hit and stumbles back. ...But Evil Wolfman miscalculated and has sent himself falling down the cliff.
Mewtwo: "...Urgh... you should really look before you shoot."
Evil Wolfman: "Foul!"
Metal Man (GM): The pinnacle of the cliff is there. Mewtwo would again point to the top of it.
Jason: .oO(Foul? More like fail.) *He nods and runs for the top.*
Starr: *She follows directions again.*
Mewtwo: "I've sent the last distress calls, Brawlers. Let us go to the top of the cliff. If no one comes, it will be our last stand. If it comes to that, I will teleport you to safety. This is not entirely your battle, and I would not sacrifice you over a mistake I allowed the original Wolfman to make."
Metal Man (GM): You get to the very top...
Kraela: "Thank the gods. I'm not paid enough to die like a dog."
Starr: "We get paid?"
Kraela: "You've discovered my point. Clever girl."
Starr: "Ah Kraela, snarky to the end. If it comes down to it, want me to shove you off this cliff so it's not Wolf who kills you? I'd gladly help you with that."
Mewtwo: *Chuckles* "The secret is, Wolfman never really paid me either... ...I stayed on to try and get some money once he was no longer around to senselessly spend it on constantly revamping the Questers' equipment and the Stadium..."
Kraela: "Sorry, Princess, I'd rather die from a dragon than a rabid poodle."
Metal Man (GM): He shakes his head, as Evil Wolfman slowly climbs up. His glasses are dented and dinged. He has dents all over him. And a still-flickering field.
Starr: "See Mewtwo, I manage my kingdom's finances better than that. I make sure I at least have enough set aside for my army after the health care and disability programs." =.*
Evil Wolfman: "Fine. The dramatic covering has only gotten in the way of my objective: to kill all of you so I can make the world mine."
Metal Man (GM): He clenches a fist and rips his cape off, then quietly puts away his glasses, showing he has yellow eyes.
Evil Wolfman: "No more words... only death."
Metal Man (GM): BATTLE
Kraela: "A man after my own heart. But I like it where it is."
Metal Man (GM): Mewtwo stands in the way.
Mewtwo: "You will not harm them as long as I can prevent it."
Metal Man (GM): Order: Evil Wolfman, Mewtwo, Kraela, Jason, Starr
Evil Wolfman: "..."
Metal Man (GM): He just fires two beams right at Mewtwo.
Starr: .oO(So... Give or take five minutes.)
Metal Man (GM): Mewtwo is hit by both. He is horribly burned, but he still stands in the way. Evil Wolfman clenches a fist, and then growls.
Starr: .oO(Less than five minutes. Definitely less than five minutes.)
Evil Wolfman: "Deathborn PUNCH!"
Metal Man (GM): Mewtwo is then burned and thrown into a boulder by a massive image of a skull that is made of fire. Mewtwo slowly gets up, bloodied but not defeated... yet... He gets a look of absolute hatred on his face, as a dark aura appears around him. (Nasty Plot) Then he hurls an entire boulder at Evil Wolfman. Evil Wolfman stands there. It violently EXPLODES on him. He doesn't flinch. It did do some horrendous damage (275, in fact) but that doesn't seem to phase him, just damage him.
Evil Wolfman: "Now, perhaps, you get the point. Your powers are useless."
Mewtwo: "You don't know what we are capable of..."
Metal Man (GM): Yes. He stands there, letting it hit him. Another small scratch to the collection. Hitting him is like trying to scratch a diamond.
Kraela: *She then swings the sword at his legs.*
Metal Man (GM): He stands there and is hit. He does not flinch, or even move; he just takes damage.
Kraela: *And she finishes her turn with an executioner.*
Metal Man (GM): Each hit makes a shower of sparks, but he stands there, not moved or flinching, or blinking.
Kraela: "Fuck, it's like trying a saw through a wall with a toothpick!"
Mewtwo: "He's... not of this world... it seems in his world, they never even bother dodging..."
Starr: "So the same as holding a conversation with you, Krae. Frustratingly difficult, and you feel insulted no matter what you try."
Evil Wolfman: "I absorbed my realm. Made it all me. It would take you weeks to kill me, even if I stood here the whole time."
Kraela: "We're facing a physical version of my ego? We're fucked."
Jason: "I don't like that idea at all..." *Exhales and tries the next best thing, helping buffer Mewtwo twice with Echoes pings...+2 to Mewtwo's Will, Technology and accuracy. EOT.*
Evil Wolfman: "Actions speak louder than words. In this case, it is literally inevitable that you will lose." *He grins but does not laugh.*
Starr: *She steels herself... For two boots to the head and a whiplash.*
Metal Man (GM): The one which failed, failed. The first hit, the last hit too. Evil Wolfman stands rock steady. Although, it is still damaging him, what little use that is. Jet would scramble up atop the mountain. He got disconnected from the others during the initial fleeing.
Jet looks rather confused and tries to get the gist of whats going on.
Mewtwo: "...It is... good that you are here, Jet. Please... do what you can to harm Evil Wolfman, even if it is little against his immense health."
Jet decides to try to pull on Wolfman's resources first then, and starts to try to pull energies from Wolfman.
Metal Man (GM): You hit. Effect? Evil Wolfman just sorta stands there, as he has been. You get the feeling it didn't do much to him. The barrage hits Evil Wolfman.
Evil Wolfman: "You can no more impair me with your weak magic than someone can imprison the sun in a small jar."
Metal Man (GM): Anything else? You have hit the number 444. Death x 3.
Evil Wolfman: "Now that you have seen that it is hopeless, I will reduce you to charred ash."
Metal Man (GM): He then begins... spamming plasma beams! Mewtwo goes to intercept... He's hit by the first one, but that takes him too low in HP to really survive another hit. Thus allowing Wolfman to next attack Jason with one! Then he attacks Starr with one! ...And that is all he can do in one turn. 150 damage when hit.
Digifanatic: *2 RP that sucker.*
Metal Man (GM): It's piercing, so that'll cost you 4. Or 2 for half. It's like being slapped by the sun itself.
Evil Wolfman: "The end has begun. In one more round of attacks you will all fall before me."
Metal Man (GM): Mewtwo stands up, bloody, using the cannon to prop himself up.
Mewtwo: "...No. I will not let you get away with this."
Evil Wolfman: "You cannot stop that which does not move."
Metal Man (GM): Mewtwo fires an immense ice beam at Evil Wolfman. Aided by Nasty plot, and Jason... Evil Wolfman sidesteps it, solely to mock Mewtwo.
Evil Wolfman: "I will remember that, when others ask how foolishly you died."
Metal Man (GM): Yes.
Kraela: *She tries again to cut into his legs and cripple him.*
Metal Man (GM): He didn't move, except to dodge that ice beam. You hit his legs, finding them solid as steel, and unbudging. But you do scrape them up/damage them.
Kraela: *And then she finishes off with a vertical slash.*
Metal Man (GM): Hit, again.
Evil Wolfman: "Congratulations. Hit me all those times you did... one hundred and twenty times more... and you could destroy me." *He flexes a claw.* "Of course, you won't last a single round longer."
Jason knows he's in danger mode right now, but does try one thing: to charge up a Sonic Slingshot for 2 TP and defend as much as he can afterwards (2 more TP).
Metal Man (GM): Hit. It slams into him, making a loud noise and further minor scratch damage, but not phasing him. Anything else?
Jason: *Already said defense, EOT.*
Starr: *She's trying not to shake, obviously scared out of her wits....*
Metal Man (GM): All hit. He stands there, cleaning his nails.
Evil Wolfman: "One small paper cut at a time..."
Starr: "Nnn..." *And there's that scared look again.*
Jet tries to ping wolf with a quickshot before lining up a blast to what looks a tiny bit weaker.
Metal Man (GM): Mewtwo has a grim look of determination on his face, even though it seems pointless. Even he couldn't seem to take him down, and to fire the cannon now would give him time to adapt to it, to be invincible for when the others finally get around to fighting him... Hit.
Evil Wolfman: "Don't take it personally, Mewtwo, but I did not come here to kill you. You are not the one who can revive on a moment's notice. Nor do you possess the potential to become more annoying Questers. You are too easy for me to bother killing again."
Metal Man (GM): He then turns to the others and morphs his right hand into one of Razor's blasters.
Evil Wolfman: "ANNIHILATE!"
Metal Man (GM): Threatens all the Brawlers.
Starr: She closes her eyes tightly. .oO(I couldn't protect my people...)
Metal Man (GM): 100 damage, piercing. Jet takes half damage.
Evil Wolfman: "And in case you thought hitting me was meaningful..." *He makes a gesture much like Rinith or Digi would.* "Cure."
Metal Man (GM): He heals 120 HP.
Evil Wolfman: "You've been an annoyance for too long." *He grabs at the air and...*
Metal Man (GM): Summons an immense Magitek mega-Mech to attack all the Brawlers again! 122 piercing damage from the lasers.
Jason: *He's dead so whatever.*
Starr: *Is also dead, so whatev.*
Metal Man (GM): Jet is the only one standing, unless I missed someone. Well, Krae has to dodge. He looks at Jet and smirks.
Evil Wolfman: "Have an extra-special explosive treat."
Metal Man (GM): He fires a Tri-attack directly at Jet's face. 111 damage, bleeding x3, stunned x3, slow x3. IF hit. Cue violent explosion. Evil Wolfman stands, with the dead Brawlers variously thrown about and their corpses burning.
Jet collapses, rather charred.
Evil Wolfman: "Now, Mewtwo, have you learned your lesson? Just because you aren't stupid, doesn't mean you won't still fail. You tried well... but all it did was make this victory more delicious."
Mewtwo: "You missed something."
Evil Wolfman: "I can easily drain their SP before they try reviving on me."
Mewtwo: "No. Something... else... You're the only competent person in your organization."
Garrick Fy`aar: *A crack of thunder sounds off from the sky as a massive ship soars in low from the horizon. It's telltale marks show that of the Dauntless. It speeds downward toward the battle field, banking once to do a complete pass over. There's a charging sound that fills the air.* "Digi. Demon. Be ready to hit the ground running."
Evil Wolfman: "...Curse you, Vile Metal Sonic. You were supposed to fail later than you did."
King Demon: "Yeah, right." *Smirks, his sword drawn.*
Digifanatic nods, takes out his full weapon as well.
Metal Man (GM): He would charge up an attack, though since it was JUST his turn, he hasn't fully powered up for another blast yet.
Garrick Fy`aar: "Nova. Target the heretic... give him everything we have."
Evil Wolfman: "It'll take more than a ship to stop me..."
Garrick Fy`aar: *A quartet of torpedoes launch from the ship, fired alongside a rapid fire series of blasts from his plasma cannons. The volley hits the ground with a wild series of explosions, giving Mewtwo ample time to find cover during the chaos.*
Metal Man (GM): Mewtwo flees, as he is good at doing, while Evil Wolfman stands there. The ground around him explodes violently, the shells hitting him dead on. Nova brings up some stats for Garrick.
Garrick Fy`aar: "Alright. I'm drop podding you guys in. I'll be with you as soon as the final shots go off."
Nova: "Garrick, we must hurry out of here. Evil Wolfman took several direct hits without flinching. His estimated strength is equivalent to the Master Egg."
Garrick Fy`aar: *A door opens near the back of the bridge, leading into a small circular room the size of a large phone boot.*
King Demon: "Guess that's our exit?" *Heads for the booth.*
Digifanatic exhales, following Demon over.
Garrick Fy`aar: "Then it's a good thing the Equinox will be here in a few moments."
Metal Man (GM): Mewtwo would flee to the Dauntless, quickly speaking at Garrick.
Mewtwo: "We must retreat to the Stadium. There are more allies there."
Garrick Fy`aar: "Alright guys. Give him hell." *With that, Garrick slams a series of commands on the doors seals, locking the two of them inside. From the outside, the ship makes to do a full pacifier as the charging sound reaches it's peak and a massive, magnetically fueled shot BLASTS out of the front part of the Dauntless, slamming into Mewtwo.*
Mewtwo: "Evil Wolfman is so powerful as to potentially blow up whatever ship strays too close to his wrath." *He then collapses into a chair.*
King Demon: "Always!"
Garrick Fy`aar: "Right. I'm sending Digi and Demon in to grab the remaining Questers."
Metal Man (GM): *Garrick kills Mewtwo and destroys the cannon, and Evil Wolfman wins again, Lews Telamon!
Garrick Fy`aar: "Guys. Get the fallen Questers and get them back to the Stadium double time. I'll provide cover."
King Demon: "Right." (presumably we've landed by now?)
Metal Man (GM): The ship is approaching.
Garrick Fy`aar: *With a final command, the pod that Digi and Demon are in suddenly is thrown hurtling to the ground right onto the battlefield, landing with a powerful slam onto the ground. It hisses before the doors open, depositing the two of them on the field.* *Comms* "Gather them up and get to the cliff. You can get back aboard the Dauntless there. I'll provide cover. Move. Quickly."
Digifanatic: *C* "Right. Let's go, Demon." *Gets up and starts getting the Brawlers.*
Metal Man (GM): Meanwhile, Evil Wolfman seems strangely unaffected by the massive MAC Cannon projectile. It hit him, yes. But he seems to be walking right out of the crater. However, it did daze him a little.
King Demon: "Yeah." *Picks up the Brawlers as well.*
Garrick Fy`aar: *The Dauntless pulls a hard turn, almost pulling the ship apart as he pulls a complete 180, unloading as much cannon fire and torpedoes as he can on the walking figure.* "By the Emperor, what's he made out of??"
Evil Wolfman: "Another ship, another possible victim for my omnipresent powers. Come, shoot another one of those at me! It makes no difference!"
King Demon: *Glances at EW as he picks up Starr* "Damn, that guy's tough, isn't he?"
Metal Man (GM): He walks into the shots, doing a vaguely Terminator-esque walk as shells bounce off of him.
Nova: "He is approximately as dense as a neutron star. I do not understand how he avoids becoming a black hole."
Garrick Fy`aar: "ETA on the Equinox, Nova."
Digifanatic sighs with two of the Brawlers in his arms and heads for the cliff, waiting.
Nova: "About 20 minutes. This realm's walls are thicker than they used to be. I'd advise you also tell them to rendezvous at the Stadium. They might not make it alone against this thing."
Metal Man (GM): Evil Wolfman, on the other hand, has begun to glow violently and charge up some sort of deathray.
Garrick Fy`aar quickly pulls the Dauntless into another steep dive over the battlefield, laying a series of photon mines along the path that Evil Wolfman is before coming to stop at the cliff, opening the loading bay doors. "Get onboard! Quickly!"
Digifanatic hops on board with his Brawlers.
King Demon hops on board with whoever he's got.
Metal Man (GM): The Dauntless would pick up on it and show that Evil Wolfman's right arm was charging the equivalent to (insert Warhammer 40k ship's main laser cannon)... even though that's just his right hand!!!
Evil Wolfman: "I have fought space ships before. I have fought entire armies. I was just saving this for a time like this."
King Demon: "I hate to say it, Garrick, but I think it's time to go."
Digifanatic: "Yeah, now's the time to punch it."
Garrick Fy`aar steals up the ship and quickly puts the hammer down, heading for the stadium as fast as the engines can take him there.
Metal Man (GM): You fly away. The massive beam scrapes the Dauntless, burning through part of the shield and actually damaging part of the thrusters.
Nova: "A few moments slower and we would have been exploded."
Garrick Fy`aar grunts as he tries to pull the ship into control... "How can one being hold so much power..."
Evil Wolfman: *C* "I will catch up, and then you will be melted into nothing."
King Demon searches for a seat, preferably one with a seatbelt.
Digifanatic: *Ditto Demon.*
Metal Man (GM): Evil Wolfman then is detected leisurely walking after you. Well, at least you have some time to reach the Stadium.
Mewtwo: "He... I looked into his mind. He absorbed an entire dimension..."
Garrick Fy`aar: "Nova, send a message to the Equinox. Give them them the coordinates to drop pod next to the stadium. Tell them to prepare for battle as soon as feet hit dirt."
Metal Man (GM): You may revive, yes. Of course, it costs 3 SP.
Garrick Fy`aar: "...Mewtwo."
Jet wakes up as they ride to the stadium, he looks around as he realizes what happened. "Umm... thanks for the save guys..."
Starr: "Oh god, my head. I feel like I got hit by Bowser's stupid airship..."
Garrick Fy`aar: "It is my duty to inform you that you have the aid of the Emperor's Blood Ravens to your cause. You have me and mine for exactly one week."
Editor's Note: Technically Garrick!Marine stole them instead, but he wouldn't let that inconvenient fact confuse anyone...
King Demon: "Something like that, Princess."
Jason revives as well.
Mewtwo: "..." *He lets out a sigh of relief.* "At least there is some help for us, then... tell him he has my thanks. We shall regroup at the Stadium, then we will have to fight Evil Wolfman to the death, if we are to have any hope of destroying him."
Metal Man (GM): Krae shall then stay dead, until the end of this session, whence Krae will have 3 SP. Since Evil Wolfman is a dick. (TM)
Jason: "To the death? Alright..."
Garrick Fy`aar: "...there have been some additions to the Questers since I was last here."
Mewtwo: "Yes... and no. The Questers... were disbanded. These, are Brawlers. Evil Wolfman was bent on killing them because... they don't go crazy like Charles Magellean. Had you not saved us, he could have destroyed them for good, ending our chances of killing him."
Garrick Fy`aar: "...I see."
Mewtwo: "The more purified Smash Energy they possess is a key ingredient in weakening Evil Wolfman."
Garrick Fy`aar: "Hrm. The Brawlers possess a purified form of Smash Energy..."
Mewtwo: "Evil Wolfman being made out of... Dark Smash Energy, I think, with how he seemed to absorb my attempts to influence him with it."
Garrick Fy`aar: "Interesting."
Digifanatic: *Muttering* "It's not pretty no matter what..."
Garrick Fy`aar: "...in any event, a ship with a squad of Devastator Marines will be arriving in twenty minutes. They should be able to assist. I also have a good deal of advanced tech that should prove to be useful. Though, when they arrive, the Dauntless will have to go quiet."
King Demon: "Understandable, I suppose."
Digifanatic: "Sounds good."
Mewtwo: "Given that Evil Wolfman survived a direct hit from your ship, it may as well be quiet. The more I see him, the more I am convinced he is the personification of the dark side of Smash Energy."
Garrick Fy`aar: "Quite." *For those of you who have just seen him, this man is not at all what Garrick looked like in the AI version. He's huge, ranging in at seven feet and some change, covered from head to toe in a high tech suit of armor with a sword taller than most of you at his hip and a hand cannon on his thigh.*
Editor's Note: I could have separate this out into Garrick vs. Garrick!Marine but they're basically the same in the end...
Jason: *Exhales* "This is gonna get nasty."
Mewtwo: "It has been nasty. Now is when it gets gruesome."
Metal Man (GM): Mewtwo uses Recover to heal his wounds, slowly.
Garrick Fy`aar: "And yet we will stand."
Nova: "We're approaching the Stadium."
Garrick Fy`aar: "As soon as we are all departed, Nova, move to the dark side of Nintendus and remain there until I signal for you."
Jet: "How do we counteract the dark side of smash energy if what you say is true?"
Garrick Fy`aar: *The Dauntless lets out a hiss of pressure from it's engines as it comes in for a landing, setting down outside the Stadium with a small bump before settling fully.* *He moves to unstrap himself from the ship, moving to collect a belt of sphere like objects and belt them around his waist before flipping a few switches and making to depart.* "We fight it until it falls."
Jason: "Just keep blasting the stubborn old guy... sounds good."
Jet: "Sigh fair enough. Hopefully we can blast harder than we just did..."
Garrick Fy`aar: "I bring with me the Emperor's Space Marines. We will assist. And we will win."
Metal Man (GM): Mewtwo would leave the ship, slowly. A battered Metal Man with two holes patched in him would be there at the door. His right arm is still smoking.
Garrick Fy`aar stops.
Jason: "Ohhh boy."
Garrick Fy`aar slowly stares down the man, his fist clenching in a metal grip, his eyebrows knitting together as he stares at his former commander in chief.
King Demon: "Metal." *Draws his sword.*
Dragoshi: "Woah, woah, woahhhh... No need to get hasty."
Metal Man: "We did..." *He'd look at Garrick, and wave his right palm.* "I'm not into that stuff anymore, I swear. I nearly died trying to hold Evil Wolfman off so the Brawlers could flee him."
Dragoshi: "Y... eah. You and me both."
Garrick Fy`aar: "...very well."
Dragoshi: "Crazy stuff, that."
Metal Man: "Don't bother trusting me, but..." *Cough violently, then coughs up blood* "...you know I don't usually put myself in harm's way to save anyone."
Garrick Fy`aar: "Know that I have my eye on you. I will not hesitate to end you if you show your old colors."
Dragoshi: "And I was just in the area, so..."
Metal Man: "The Stadium is an exception to my rules. Once this is over, we can return to hating one another."
King Demon: "..." *Glares at Metal.*
Garrick Fy`aar: "...every bit of help is needed."
King Demon: "Yeah, fine, we'll work with you... don't think for one second we're going to go back to working FOR you, though."
Garrick Fy`aar: *As soon as the Questers and Brawlers leave the ship, the Dauntless would take off soon after and rocket back into the air, launching for the horizon.*
Digifanatic: *Sighs again* "Whatever it's going to take..."
Metal Man: "Normally I'd love a chance to duel you, Garrick, and even you, Demon, but..." *He would tremble a bit.* "I let that Evil Wolf guy blast my freakin' innards out to help save you... it'd be stupid to waste that."
Garrick Fy`aar: "Quite so."
Metal Man: "Now Julian... he I would attack even if it was the end of the world. ...But that's for another day. Come in... it's not my Stadium, but Deloth and Mack are about the only ones here right now... oh! And Dr. Light..."
Metal Man (GM): He walks inside, slouched over.
Mewtwo: "Although I will never trust him again, it appears he will be useful in defending the Stadium this last time."
Metal Man (GM): No. Kaine would be... have him run back into view right now, Demon. I'm going to assume he got separated when everyone ran.
Garrick Fy`aar nods and moves inside, his heavily armored form crunching inside the the stadium.
Jason walks in, holding Kraela for his own...
Kaine runs up to everyone, panting quite a bit.
Starr: "KAINE!" *She clings to him,* "Oh god, you have no idea what just happened..."
Kaine: *Hugs Starr and kisses her* "Sorry about that, I got cut off from you guys."
Metal Man (GM): Inside the Stadium... Deloth would be in a separate room, resting (due to him not being here to play his character)... Mack would be repairing some damage.. ...Metal Man would be with Dr. Light.
Dr. Light: "Your device was quite useful in jamming Evil Wolfman's field. Good thing you let me scan it."
Garrick Fy`aar glances to Starr and Kaine with a bit of a raised eyebrow.
Dragoshi just follows the group along.
Metal Man: "Well, you know, I also kind of want to be able to warp out of here later, so a lynch mob doesn't finally do me in for what I did before. I should have known better than to try and scam an entire Stadium."
Jason listens in.
Ian: *So does he.*
Dragoshi: "That kind of goes without saying, all things considered."
Dr. Light: "Normally I would try to have you put in jail for what you did, Metal Man, but since I was partially responsible for frying your brain for a while with the Fighter Remote... we're even for now."
Metal Man: "...Nice... I can be neutral non-mortal enemies with the guy who fried my brain with an untested shock collar."
Dr. Light: "Your time device will work now, Metal Man, but do not try that field thing again, or we all might wind up warped into a black hole."
Metal Man: "You don't have to tell me twice. My arm nearly flew off."
Garrick Fy`aar: "What is this device you speak of?"
Metal Man (GM): Metal Man would show... a Time Device, the one Garrick might remember from SSQ^2/Alsa.
Dragoshi: "The field thing could've ended better, yeah... But hey. We're still alive!"
Metal Man: "I lied again, naturally. The device doesn't make me crazy so much as I was drinking too much phazon."
Jason: "Not by much... but we are..."
Dragoshi: "Somehow, I'm not surprised that you have phazon problems."
King Demon: *Smirks* "Don't ask, Garrick."
Valentine: "You have a bad habit of doing that, Metal Man." *And guess who just walked in.*
Metal Man: "But it might go for a consolation prize that you're about the only person who killed me in the last decades, Garrick."
Garrick Fy`aar: "...very well."
Kaine: "Wait, THAT'S Garrick?"
Metal Man: "Sure. Can't you see it with the built-in HUD over your ey--...oh, right. Not all of us wear cybernetic suits of armor."
Garrick Fy`aar turns to Kaine and raises his eyebrow for a moment. "Yes, I am Garrick. I have merely... taken on a new job. Of a sort."
Metal Man: "Sort of like me, I'm sure, only not backstabby. Your armor is too slow to be a bounty hunter's rig."
Garrick Fy`aar: "I am a Space Marine."
Valentine: "Dr. Light. I have something to give you as per Mewtwo's request."
Dr. Light: "And that is...?"
Digifanatic: .oO(And here we go.)
Kaine: "Huh... your other you doesn't look a whole lot like you."
Metal Man (GM): On a side note, Metal Man's armor IS rather slim and not as bulky as Garrick's. Probably to aid in escaping from bank heists. Although that cape must always get caught in things. The back of it is ripped up.
Valentine would just hand over a data disk to Dr. Light. "For your eyes only."
Dr. Light: "Right. I'll get a look at it when I'm done here."
Garrick Fy`aar: "...the AI? Ah yes... I'll need to make sure that's well hidden before the Equinox arrives..."
Metal Man: "There's a Garrick AI? Wow."
Digifanatic: "Yeah, we've used him from time to time..."
Starr: "Your AI is nice. Useful as hell too." *She spins, suddenly in her Princess Gown.*
Metal Man (GM): Metal Man looks around as if he's afraid it will pop out of any corner and infect his armor or something.
Garrick Fy`aar: "As he was created to be."
Dragoshi: "Calm down, Metal."
Metal Man: "I knew I should have upgraded to Kapersky Anti-AI 35.6 million..."
Garrick Fy`aar glances Starr up and down for a moment. "...your highness."
Starr: "Don't bother. I'm a war-princess. I hate titles."
Dragoshi straightens out his tophat.
Garrick Fy`aar: "Ah, a Battle Maiden. Nuns with guns, as it were."
Metal Man: "Oooh, a war princess. Do you throw a spinny disc at people? ...I say that because I had a bad experience with someone who did just that. I think I shouldn't have tried to steal those shiny rocks."
Starr: *She nods,* "I'm hear to save my people from the coming storm..." *She pulls out her whip and cracks it.* "And no. I don't shoot discs."
Garrick Fy`aar: "Hrm." *He can't help but chuckle lowly.*
Kaine puts a hand on Starr's shoulder, smiling.
Starr: "..." *She smirks a tad, winding her whip up slowly.* "I dared not put my army in harms way... It's my job to protect my peoples."
Garrick Fy`aar: "So... what preparations do you have for the incoming threat besides the Time device of Metal's?"
Kaine: *Looking at Starr* "Spinny discs?" *Shrugs.*
Dr. Light: "Well, Mewtwo has the main device."
Metal Man (GM): Mewtwo would walk in.
Starr: "Mewtwo's Order Cannon."
Metal Man (GM): He'd hold up the battered, but intact cannon.
Digifanatic: "Hi, Mewtwo."
Mewtwo: "This cannon can reorder reality. It contains immense destructive and creative power. I could have used it on the mountain, but it has a caveat: against Evil Wolfman, it would only weaken him to the point where he could be defeated in a fight."
Valentine: "Good to see you haven't died yet, Mewtwo."
Mewtwo: "Multiple attempts on my life by Evil Wolfman notwithstanding, I have cheated death again."
Dragoshi: "Good to hear."
Starr: "Lucky bastard. If I had half the ability to survive hits that you do..." =.=;;
Garrick Fy`aar: "And what do you intend to do about the Dark Smash Energy?"
Mewtwo: "The Order Cannon will impair its ability to warp reality."
King Demon: "Yeah, Mewtwo, you really must be a cat, I swear you've gone through at LEAST 8 lives by now."
Mewtwo: "Then the others can destroy him, dispersing the energy. Then another shot from the cannon will render it inert. We may also need to throw all of our Smash Energy into the cannon to cancel it out, like Antimatter."
Valentine: "Well I did warn you not to fight Evil Wolfman. But I wasn't going to stop you. I did finish as you requested though."
Mewtwo: "He attacked us first."
Metal Man (GM): He'd point the cannon at Val's face.
Mewtwo: "And I should remember to note that this cannon can also rewrite people's personalities if you should continue to be annoying."
Starr: "He cornered us on the peak of a MOUNTAIN! What were were SUPPOSED TO DO!?" *She growls,* "You're the so-called master strategist. How would YOU have handled that?"
Garrick Fy`aar glances to the man before looking back to Mewtwo with his eyebrow raised.
Metal Man: "Hoo-oo, Val, I thank you for being around. You keep makin' them angry. I'm going to do something mundane and non-aggravating... like eat a burger." *He walks off to the cafeteria.*
King Demon: *Sighs* "Why exactly are you hear, anyway, Val? Going to run your mouth and do nothing some more?"
Mewtwo: "We need a demoralizing person like we need a hole in the head right now, Val."
Valentine: "Well, I may not run into a battle mindlessly like you, Demon, but I have my personal assignments."
Starr: "I'd prefer the hole in the head to her. I'd prefer KRAE to her."
Garrick Fy`aar: "I see the continuing trend of the Quester who doesn't live up to the ideals is still going strong."
Valentine: "Very well, Mewtwo. I have made a break through or I think I have. Dr. Light will conform it at a later time."
Mewtwo: "Yes... but something has changed."
King Demon: "Right..."
Mewtwo: "I swore when I got this cannon to end that."
Metal Man (GM): *CLICK* Val is suddenly hit with a strange energy beam.
Starr: "..." *._.*
Metal Man (GM): Oddly, no damage, but suddenly she feels immense guilt for every coin she ever took out of the Stadium. And it just won't go away, like it's burning inside her skull.
Kaine: "Did you just...?"
Jason: "He did soooomething..."
Mewtwo: "There will be no more tolerance of people who nickel and dime the Stadium. Just as Metal Man was warned not to take our money, so now you have. Support us, and that horrible feeling will go away. Continue your wicked ways, and you will go insane and die."
Valentine: "...Excuse me then." *And she exits.*
King Demon: *Snickers* "Bout damn time."
Mewtwo: "I swore to kill every Quester who continued that way. With this cannon, it will become true."
Garrick Fy`aar: "...quite the tactic, Mewtwo."
Digifanatic: *Laughs* "Does that mean she can pay me back?"
Metal Man (GM): Mewtwo would then turn to Garrick.
Starr: "... I- ... Kaine, sorry. but I think I'm in love... With the Cannon."
Mewtwo: "She will have to, if she doesn't want to die from insanity."
Digifanatic strokes his chin, smirking.
Kaine: "Yeah, just don't let him hit you with it, that doesn't feel so pleasant."
Starr: "Fair point."
King Demon: "Yeah, and you just got a PORTION of that thing's power!"
Mewtwo: "See, Garrick, I have learned. Never to tolerate greedy Questers again."
Garrick Fy`aar stares at Mewtwo. "...well. At least a small amount of progress is being made."
Jet shakes his head. "Can we please focus on the crazy powerful being coming towards us... what do we need to do to setup the cannon?"
Digifanatic: *Nods* "I like Jet's idea."
King Demon: "Indeed."
Kaine: "That works."
Mewtwo: "The cannon is ready. We must simply rest and prepare for the final battle."
Starr: "I'm prepared to die. If I do, my only regret is that I will have failed my people. I regret nothing else."
The Ninja: "How about hungry Quester? Fight hunger with taste and low price!" *And a shadow raises up from Mewtwo's shadow. Why, its the Ninja!*
Garrick Fy`aar: "As I said. A squad of Devastator Marines will be arriving soon. They should provide us with some assistance."
Metal Man (GM): Mewtwo would look at the Ninja. Oddly, he would not brandish the cannon.
Jet sits down with a sigh. "I'd be fine with that I guess..." he says as he creates a small flame, which is quickly snuffed at as he startles and falls backwards out of his seat.
Mewtwo: "...You were right, Ninja. Metal Man was not entirely evil and dishonorable. Only 99.99%."
Kaine: "If you die but save your people, do you still regret it?"
Starr: "Not in the slightest."
Mewtwo: "For that, I will allow you to be in the Stadium without contest, although also partially because you offer something more useful than Val. I am rather hungry..."
The Ninja: "A ninja is never wrong about honor is good burger!"
Dragoshi: "...yeah. jeeze, I kinda forgot to eat on the way here."
The Ninja: "I made funny!"
King Demon: "... Think I'm going to hit the cafeteria."
Starr: "As long as they're safe, I've done my duty as a princess. Even if I am no longer there to rule them..."
Mewtwo: "I will have a burger, then. Of course, this is for the Stadium, so it will have to be free. You owe me one for being too hasty earlier, even if Metal Man isn't completely evil."
The Ninja: "Just yell and ninja hears all!" *He would claps his hands and explode in shadowy mist. And give Mewtwo as ninja pat on the back before he disappear.*
Jet looks at the Ninja and sighs before going back to building the flame and starts what it looks like breathing and energy flow exercises. "Really Kaine I doubt anyone will truly die unless we all fall. And I wouldn't dream of that again."
Metal Man (GM): Metal Man would wander in with a burger, his helmet flipped open to reveal his freakish Andrew-Jackson-like hair and unnaturally smooth face.
Metal Man: "Mmph... you don't need to worry Mewtwo... if he acts bad, I can make him act good again... mph..."
Garrick Fy`aar: "I do not require food at the moment. I will work the sensors to make sure the Equinox gets the right coordinates."
Mewtwo: "...Very well, you get to work, Garrick, while I eat and... prepare the Stadium defenses."
The Ninja: "A Ninja acts like a Ninja acts. Like how bird sings and a rabbit jumps." *Mewtwo would have his burger. On his head as the Ninja would appear next to Metal Man.*
Kaine: "True." *He hugs Starr* "Besides, if we can help it, she'll live to see her people find peace."
Garrick Fy`aar would soon walk out and make to work on one of the consoles in the Big Room.
Metal Man (GM): Mewtwo would chuckle and grab the burger, and eat it, while Metal Man would take this opportunity to talk.
Metal Man: "When this is over, it shall be over for good. I can sense it. In another dimension, Wolfman led us against a weird combination-monster, and we had to throw our Smash Powers at it too."
The Ninja: "Don't forget to return Toad when finished."
Metal Man: "I'll be sure to add mine into the pot, corrupted as they are. Don't need little old me using your smash powers to steal everything."
Jet: "I hope so... although, if that happens... what do you think will happen to us?"
Metal Man: "Oh yeah! I almost forgot about him. Well, I dunno. I'm just an interdimensional thief."
Metal Man (GM): He takes out a diamond and flicks it around in his metal hand.
Metal Man: "I'll have some more objects to steal."
Jet nods "I see. I guess thats something Ill have to find out when the time comes."
Mewtwo: *Can talk while eating due to using telepathy, yay* "You will have a choice of going to your home realms, or wandering to another realm if it should strike your fancy."
Metal Man: "Of course, I should warn you, dimensional stuff is big work, so it's not for the sane or faint hearted. You should probably just go back home unless you hated it all along."
Garrick Fy`aar would walk in a moment later.
Dragoshi: "Well, yeah."
Garrick Fy`aar: "As I did."
The Ninja: "I stay and remake chain restaurant and make sure Man of Metal behaves."
Jet looks up with a spark of interest. "Home sounds good actually. Going to be weird at first, with how long I have disappeared... and probably the scolding hole in the ground I left."
Metal Man (GM): Metal Man would pop his helmet on... get it stuck on sideways...
Metal Man: "Some day I'll find a working hinge. Stopped working right after I blew up that one time..."
Jet: "Blew up?"
Metal Man (GM): He bonks his helmet against the wall a few times before squeaking it into place.
Metal Man: "Garrick blew me up for being a money-stealing SOB."
Jet laughs "I guess that kinda explains the hatred."
Metal Man: "I don't blame him, really, because I got in over my head and thought I could steal all the money in the Stadium. I didn't even need it."
Starr: "I suppose... It's home again for me after this."
Garrick Fy`aar: "You deserved it."
King Demon: "I didn't care for my home."
Kaine: "I'll go with you, Princess."
Metal Man: "I think it also helped me a bit. You know, The Void's particles were still stuck in me for a bit. Being exploded fixed that real quick."
Jason: "See you two."
Metal Man: "Sort of like how this entire realm got better after violently exploding."
Starr: *She almost chokes on her meal.* "Brawler say what?"
Kaine: *Snickers* "Hey, I have a few things to deal with back home, but I have no problem leaving once that's done."
Dragoshi: "Violent explosions are the cure to all of life's ails. Clearly."
King Demon: "Most of them, at least."
Starr: "Kaine..." *She seems to be stabbing at her dinner now.* "You're kidding... You hate royalty... Authority..."
Garrick Fy`aar remains quiet for the most part, simply standing there and watching them eat.
Kaine: "Most of it, yes."
Metal Man (GM): Metal Man creeks his neck, then starts playing Solitaire.
King Demon watches Metal, smirking.
Digifanatic: "Well... here we go again... all I can say..."
The Ninja: "Just like old times!"
Jet just slowly exercises, causing the flame to grown and shrink in an almost harmonic pattern.
Starr: "..." *She sighs softly,* "Okay. Fine... But you start as a soldier. Not my-... My-..." *She winces.* "B-b-b-boy... B-b-boyfriend."
Metal Man: "Yes, and no. I don't remember Mewtwo actually whupping Questers who disobeyed."
Garrick Fy`aar: "For the last time."
Mewtwo: *Smirks* "I decided it was about time to get revenge."
Metal Man: "Or Garrick being beefier than me."
Jason chuckles a bit at Starr's remark.
Garrick Fy`aar: "We felt this same way when we took on Smithy. And Kuja."
Kaine: "Lateral move? I can deal with that."
Garrick Fy`aar: "And the lizard leader."
Metal Man: "I can still feel Kales' sword wounds on my arm."
Garrick Fy`aar: "And Charles. And Zio and Jack and all the rest. Once more into the breach."
Editor's Note: Yeup, same memories. Long backstory may CLAIM this guy is different, but he certainly acts the same. Although, I will concede, he is not the same person, anymore than insane Psycho Illian and his non-insane post-Psycho Illian doppelganger are; it's just that they definitely are the same memory and behavior wise, with differences based upon the current season / fashion of the time applied.
Starr: "Lateral move with chance for promotion."
Metal Man: "One more time, then we're good, yeah, feels about right."
Kaine: "True, and the benefits aren't bad."
Metal Man (GM): Metal Man snaps his finger.
Metal Man: "Missed my chance to beat up Julian, though."
Dragoshi: "He kinda fell just. Fell off. Or something."
Metal Man (GM): Metal Man takes out a flaming golf club and quietly strokes its unnatural, burning surface.
The Ninja: "Metal on Metal, Man of Metal."
Metal Man (GM): +10 EXP to everything ever (Because you're gonna need it)
Jason pats Kraela's shoulders a few times, hoping that they've spent long enough in the safety of Stadium such that she can peacefully wake up.
Starr: "..." *She smiles softly,* "I'm going to work you until you can't feel your limbs anymore." *Smirk.*
Metal Man (GM): Yes, Kit can be around to ask him things if she wants. Deloth gets the 10. She vanished off for some side thing, but can return.
Kaine: "Really? That might be interesting."
Kraela: *Kraela stirs, sighing.*
Metal Man (GM): Ah, Karlai would be able to revive now, yes. And I'm AFK, since I'm wiped from all that GMing post-cold.
Jason: "You going to be okay?"
Kaine: *Smirks* "So, what would I be then, a grunt?"
Kaine: "Doing what?"
Kraela: "Yeah, I'll be fine. Glad you're alright, too."
Jason: "Yeah..." *Takes a seat, placing her next to him.*
Digifanatic: *Whistles a bit and approaches Demon again* "What a job."
Kraela: *She kisses his cheek.* "This'll be big."
King Demon: "Yeah, it is."
Digifanatic nods, leaning her in.
Starr: "The usual, you saw the training my elites did..."
Jason motions Demon over.
Kraela: *She just leans against Jason and closes her eyes. After a few moments, though, it's obvious she's fallen asleep.*
Jason: "Ehhhh, never mind, Demon."
King Demon: *Heads over to Jason* "Heh... she's tired."
Kaine: "Hmmm... I think I can handle THAT, you know."
Jason: "Yeah, that was sudden." *Chuckles.*
Starr: "Every day for at least ten years?"
Jason: *Shrugs* "Well, I'll give her her room, put it that way..." *Smirks and stands up, holding Kraela and heading out of the room.*
Kaine: *Shrugs* "After THIS?"
Starr: "If you're as strong as I expect... By then, you'll be promoted to the top of my ranks..."
Kaine: "Good." *Smirks.*
Digifanatic: *And Didge returns his attention to Demon* "I miss our big moves..." *Smirks M to Demon* "Maybe if I'm lucky, I can get Deloth to let me borrow his little card I wanted to use towards the end of that Ael fight..."
King Demon: *Smirks* "Yeah, right." *Shrugs* "Right, well, I think I'm heading out. Later." *Waves and leaves.*
Starr: "Yes, Kaine?"
Kaine: "We probably should get going ourselves."
Starr: "Yeah, you're right..."
Metal Man (GM): That reminds me, another session I can deal with Rinith's role in the final battle, should Rinith have the computer available to pop up.
Kaine: *Bows to her, holding out his hand* "Your Majesty?" *Yeah, he's halfway mocking her, but he's also somewhat sincere.*
Starr: *She takes his hand and stands, smiling.* "Thank you."
Kaine smiles, leading her to the warp.
