  1. <WindStrike> *LAST TIME ON ZURPG!
  2. <WindStrike> *Dex, Corsava, and Kirran converged at the Sol Fountain, where Corsava proceeded to supernuke the Super Dark Mass out of existence immediately. Chaos ensued, and in your fight against the Interlopers, you found a way to free the Twili and turn the tide. You eventually blew up all the Interloper minions, but all four of the Interloper bosses escaped. You did steal the Mirror Armor, aka the last Twilight Mirror Shard. Unfortunately, there's a good chance the Interlopers now have the other two shards, as well as the Twilight Palace.
  3. <WindStrike> *Also, Mask Man showed up at the end with a massive madness-infused Argarok, which we're referring to as Godzilla. Have fun fighting that.
  4. * DM pokes Orithan to hengen.
  5. <DM> -=SESSION START=-
  6. <Corsava> AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH
  7. <Corsava> HHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  8. <Darte> !
  9. <DM> *From right outside the crumbled towers of the Sol Fountain, the Great Chaos Argarok, Godzilla, stands before you, its vein-covered colossal dragonic form towering high and above you. Looking at the top of its head requires angling your head in such a way that hurts your neck after a little while.
  10. <DM> *Mask Man has placed himself on its back, next to its claw-heavy single wing.
  11. <Kirran> So, what do you suppose the best way to get in that thing's gut?
  12. <Kirran> is the*
  13. <Corsava> I mean...
  14. <DM> [Xanas]: You want to get eaten by it?
  15. <Corsava> Probably through the anus.
  16. * Darte tilts his head and adjusts his glasses. "I might have something. But not for the big guy."
  17. <Kirran> I want the thing it ate.
  18. <DM> *Xanas eventually gives up trying to reconnect his broken hammer and just stashes its pieces into his inventory.
  19. <DM> [Xanas]: Got one of those hooker shot things you use?
  20. <DM> [Xanas]: ....... err........
  21. <Kirran> Yep
  22. <Corsava> "Do you...need to take care of something, Xanas?"
  23. <DM> *Xanas turns away from you, Corsava.
  24. <DM> *Looking at Godzilla, you reckon it'd take 3 Hookshots to reach its mouth, and then you'd have to pass through without getting munched to crunchytime crisps.
  25. <Kirran> Corsava, it occurs to me, have you ever actually talked to Happy Mask?
  26. <Corsava> "Yes, why?"
  27. <Kirran> How did that go?
  28. <Corsava> "Not...great?"
  29. <Kirran> I mean, you guys are both super into masks and all. I think there's common ground there for a conversation.
  30. <Corsava> "You know, the whole 'I'm just going to test this thing before I use it to... and then I just kind of zoned out. I'm sure he said his plan was sheer elegance in its simplicity at some point, they always do."
  31. <Corsava> "Wait, what do you mean, I'm 'super into' masks?"
  32. * DM high-fives Corsava for the sheer elegance of the simplicity of that statement.
  33. <Kirran> I mean, you're wearing one right now.
  34. <Kirran> And, in fact, I don't think I've seen you not wearing one unless you couldn't.
  35. <Corsava> "I don't see you pointlessly not using all of your equipment slots."
  36. <DM> [Ordona]: I'm afraid the Sol Fountain is out of commission for some time. We avoided doing that against the Interlopers because it was a last ditch effort to "fire my lazor".
  37. <Corsava> "And...wait, I only put this one once I had it. I wasn't wearing any mask before that."
  38. <DM> [Ordona]: And since we used all the Sols... we may want to consider moving from this location. It will be some time before the Sol Fountain returns.
  39. <Kirran> I'm just saying, I think there's a conversation you could have with this guy.
  40. <Hal> Yes.
  41. <Corsava> "I see..."
  42. <DM> [Midna]: Are you considering talking it out with that madman?!
  43. <Corsava> "Alrighty. Ordona, could you please relocate to my bow for safe travel?"
  44. <Hal> We want to know what Masked Man is doing here
  45. <DM> [Ordona]: Will do.
  46. <DM> *She absorbs into your bow in a flash.
  47. * Darte turns to Midna. "Y'reighness, anywhere we could lure this thing that might make things more... manageable? Maybe let us get to that masked freak a bit easier?"
  48. <Kirran> I, meanwhile, am going to figure out how to get eaten safely by this Grue.
  49. <DM> *From within you, Darte, Faron speaks.
  50. <Hal> There must be an important reason as to why he is in here
  51. <DM> [Faron]: I've recovered my power, but without the Sol Fountain, there's no way of recharging it again. Not without getting the third Golden Artifact.
  52. <Hal> When I look over at him... I can't help but notice that he is missing a lot of his power
  53. <DM> *When Faron speaks, Darte's eyes glow apparently.
  54. <DM> *Think uhh... what are those creatures from Stargate....
  55. <DM> *Gou'ald.
  56. <Hal> Maybe this is this the most he can actually do to us over here.
  57. <DM> [Midna]: It's a fair point, but how do we stop him from smashing us this very second?
  58. <DM> *She points, and as is now noticeable, Chaos Argarok is lifting one of its feet.
  59. <Kirran> Get his attention with something he's interested in.
  60. <Corsava> "Pray?"
  61. <Kirran> Like Corsava.
  62. <DM> *Not for stepping forward, either.
  63. <Kirran> And Corsava's masks.
  64. <DM> *Chaos Argarok proceeds to stamp down on the ground. Hard.
  65. <DM> $100d10
  66. <Navi> DM: You rolled 100 Dice with 10 Sides. Total: 485. Successes: 56.
  67. * Corsava sighs "Fuck."
  68. <DM> oh wow that's low
  69. * Darte considers for a bit. "I think I can at least knock 'em off kilter for a while. Everyone else ready to r-- crap"
  70. * Hal runs from the stomp.
  71. <DM> *Its foot stomps into the ground, causing a shockwave that ripples through the ground outwards, ripping the earth apart as it crosses through it.
  72. <Kirran> Darte, you and me need to figure out how to get into that thing pronto. Hal and Corsava, run diplomacy.
  73. * Corsava fires my trident over it and teleports to it so as to avoid the shockwave
  74. <Hal> With Masked Man?
  75. <Kirran> And hope Dex doesn't show up and start stabbing people's eyes.
  76. <Hal> Knowing Dex he would already be doing that.
  77. <Hal> I'm sure he would foolishly equip that armor...
  78. <DM> *Midna uses her Fused Shadow Mask to use shadow hands to cover you all partially.
  79. <DM> *Everyone (except Corsava thanks to her teleport), roll Power or Courage (your choice) to defend, w/ +10 dice! Damage is halved.

  91. <DM> *Xanas has moved to the Twili group towards the back and is thus safe. Midna, though...
  92. <Hal> 56-26 = 30-11 = 19/2 = 9.5 damage
  93. <DM> $48d10 Midna
  94. <Navi> DM: You rolled 48 Dice with 10 Sides. Results: 9, 2, 9, 1, 7, 8, 9, 7, 2, 8, 5, 6, 10, 1, 6, 10, 9, 3, 9, 9, 6, 3, 3, 2, 8, 8, 8, 4, 1, 3, 9, 10, 4, 8, 1, 1, 5, 9, 8, 6, 7, 2, 2, 6, 2, 8, 5 and 1. Total: 270. Successes: 33.
  95. * Hal takes 10 damage. Ouch.
  96. <Darte> 17h12m | Grumpy | 1 charge
  97. <DM> 56 - 33 = 23 - 5 = 18/2 = 9 damage to Midna
  98. <Hal> 11h 15m 4rp | +2 Armor
  99. <DM> *Corsava, you zip onto the back of Chaos Argarok, next to Mask Man.
  100. <DM> [Midna]: That could have been more pleasant.
  101. <Corsava> Hey...so, they sent me to talk...
  102. <Kirran> Darte, let's figure out how to teleport into that thing's throat before we get squashed.
  103. <DM> [Mask Man]: Oh-hoh?
  104. <Corsava> "The hope is that I can negotiate some kind of ceasefire?"
  105. <DM> [Midna]: If that thing gets any closer and does it again, I can't protect the injured from it.
  106. * Darte shows Kirran something in his possessions.
  107. <Hal> We need to distract it somehow
  108. <DM> [Mask Man]: A cease fire? Sure, of course! Afterall, my pet has nothing to fire!
  109. <DM> *The Argarok raises its foot again, this time a little higher...
  110. <Corsava> "So...is there anything you *want* like...I don't know, something we could offer? Information? Another target you hate more?"
  111. <Hal> (How long would it take to run around it?)
  112. <DM> (A turn, but...... it wouldn't save you from the shockwave)
  113. <Hal> (It's already taken a second turn)
  114. <Kirran> Hey, you. Dragon! You hungry?
  115. <DM> [Mask Man]: Another target I hate more? Hmm....
  116. * Kirran jumps up and down.
  117. <Kirran> Eat me!
  118. <DM> *Kirran, it looks in your direction, but otherwise doesn't move.
  119. * Kirran readies his teleport.
  120. <Corsava> "We know where Dark Link is...where the Great Fairy is...uh..."
  121. * Kirran fires an arrow at it's face.
  122. <Corsava> "We know where the twilight fairy fountain is..."
  123. <DM> *He twitches when you mention "Great Fairy".
  124. <DM> [Mask Man]: Hmm, while I would like to know what happened to the Great Fairy, it's not why I'm here right now.
  125. <Kirran> Come on you jumped up newt. Eat me!
  126. <DM> *Kirran, roll it. By the way, your teleportation rod caps out at 50 feet, doesn't it? Aka, same length as a hookshot?
  127. <Kirran> (Yes, but it's also good at preserving momentum.)
  128. <DM> (indeed)
  129. <Kirran> $53d10
  130. <Navi> Kirran: You rolled 53 Dice with 10 Sides. Total: 316. Successes: 42.
  131. * Hal casts Great Rejuvination on himself and attempts to make a break for it by running around Godzilla.
  132. <Corsava> "I also have a mask that explodes people?"
  133. <Corsava> "It's...pretty neat."
  134. * Corsava shows him the Bomb mask
  135. <DM> *Your arrow flies up and up and nicks Argarok in the head. It seems from the distance, the attack got neutered by about 10 successes.
  136. <DM> 32 - 20 armor = 12 damage
  137. <DM> Godzilla: ..... 2488h
  138. <DM> *However, with your arrow embedded in it, it instead slowly lowers its right foot... forward.
  139. <DM> *Towards you.
  140. <DM> *Mask Man peers outward towards the Sol Fountain area, then back to you.
  141. <Hal> 21h 11m 4rp | +2 Armor
  142. <DM> [Mask Man]: What is it that you wish from my services?
  143. <DM> *Hal, roll Courage.
  144. <Kirran> Come get me you big ugly wart! I'm tasty!
  145. <Hal> (Add defensive bonuses to it)
  146. <Hal> *?
  147. <DM> *Godzilla moves closer and closer. He is now very close to you, Kirran.
  148. * Kirran runs towards it, waving his arms like a cuccoo.
  149. <DM> (nah, just courage, it's pure movement)
  150. <Corsava> Un momento.
  151. <Hal> $17d10
  152. <Navi> Hal: You rolled 17 Dice with 10 Sides. Results: 6, 10, 1, 2, 10, 4, 5, 5, 7, 7, 3, 8, 6, 6, 10, 1 and 3. Total: 94. Successes: 14.
  153. * Corsava fires my trident next to Kirran and teleports to him.
  154. * Kirran is ready with the teleport and a jump into it's mouth.
  155. <Corsava> "Hey, what do we want, again?"
  156. <Corsava> "Not to die, right?"
  157. * Kirran runs past Corsava not paying attention.
  158. <DM> *You pass to Godzilla's other side, and thanks to Godzilla moving forward towards Kirran, you are now behind it!
  159. * Corsava grabs Kirran and teleports into the Godzilla.
  160. <Corsava> "Okay, you're here. Now what did we want?"
  161. <DM> *Midna has moved all of her shadow hands towards the group of Twili in the back, creating a full protective barrier.
  162. * Hal looks around to what the terrain around himself is
  163. <DM> *Corsava, roll Courage vs. Kirran
  164. <Kirran> $1d3
  165. <Navi> Kirran: You rolled 1 Die with 3 Sides. Result: 3.
  166. <Kirran> $51d10
  167. <Navi> Kirran: You rolled 51 Dice with 10 Sides. Total: 282. Successes: 38.
  168. <Corsava> $23d10
  169. <Navi> Corsava: You rolled 23 Dice with 10 Sides. Results: 10, 1, 1, 6, 5, 6, 9, 9, 2, 4, 3, 7, 6, 5, 1, 5, 4, 1, 4, 9, 8, 5 and 4. Total: 115. Successes: 14.
  170. <DM> *Kirran, you have the opportunity to COUNTERATTACK!
  171. * Kirran picks up Corsava and throws her back up to the mask man.
  172. <Kirran> $40d10
  173. <Navi> Kirran: You rolled 40 Dice with 10 Sides. Results: 1, 3, 9, 3, 10, 4, 6, 10, 3, 6, 10, 9, 1, 6, 7, 10, 7, 10, 2, 4, 6, 6, 4, 1, 10, 4, 4, 8, 1, 9, 2, 2, 1, 10, 5, 10, 4, 10, 10 and 6. Total: 234. Successes: 33.
  174. <DM> *Hal, the terrain is ruined earth, along with the crumbled towers. Otherwise, not much else here.
  175. <DM> *Corsava, you are chucked to part of the way back. You may want to consider teleporting the rest of the way, unless you want to feel fall damage with the ground.
  176. <Corsava> Aah!
  177. * Corsava teleports up onto its back again.
  178. <Corsava> "To not die."
  179. <Corsava> "To not die is the goal."
  180. <DM> *His smile fades.
  181. <Corsava> "I mean, unless you feel like helping us kill something impressive."
  182. <DM> [Mask Man]: A pitiable wish.
  183. <Corsava> "Like the Interlopers or something."
  184. <DM> [Mask Man]: ... that would be... desirable.
  185. <DM> [Mask Man]: However, that would fetch a very, very high price.
  186. <Corsava> They're sort of all concentrated at Twili town.
  187. * Kirran rubs some bait on his armor.
  188. <DM> [Mask Man]: Is that so?
  189. <Corsava> It is, in fact. They're attacking the city, if I recall.
  190. <DM> *Kirran, you now smell of bacon. The smell floats on up to Godzilla. It suddenly snaps its head towards you. Roll to defend, or react with something else!
  191. <DM> $50d10
  192. <Navi> DM: You rolled 50 Dice with 10 Sides. Results: 5, 9, 5, 5, 5, 1, 5, 1, 1, 6, 5, 6, 2, 9, 7, 2, 3, 1, 9, 4, 9, 10, 6, 10, 10, 10, 10, 3, 10, 9, 9, 4, 8, 3, 9, 2, 4, 3, 3, 5, 9, 7, 1, 10, 6, 7, 1, 8, 7 and 10. Total: 294. Successes: 41.
  193. <Kirran> (Is it's mouth open?)
  194. <DM> *Its mouth is indeed open.
  195. * Kirran teleports into it's mouth, beyond it's teeth.
  196. * Darte Golden Flashes into the mouth.
  197. <DM> [Mask Man]: Well... I can't quite quite attack the Palace without causing a little... collateral damage with this pet. I'd need something a little more focused... oh, I know!
  198. <DM> [Mask Man]: What happened to that Light Spirit that was at the fountain just a bit ago?
  199. <DM> *Ordona keeps silent within you.
  200. <Corsava> She's uh...in my bow. When she recharges she powers it up. Wait- why?"
  201. <Hal> (Where is Godzilla's profile?)
  202. <DM> *His smile returns.
  203. <DM> (uhhh ended up talking for prep time and- his profile is hyper simple, two passives, 100 power, 50 courage, 0 wisdom, 2500 hearts, 20 armor, and its attacks are literally just dice rolls)
  204. <DM> *Kirran and Darte, you use your opening to zip into the back of its mouth. You immediately start to slide down its surprisingly bony and dry throat.
  205. <DM> *Kirran and Darte, both of you roll Courage, no defense dice.
  206. <Hal> (Anything to hookshot to nearby?)
  207. <Kirran> $35d10
  208. <Navi> Kirran: You rolled 35 Dice with 10 Sides. Results: 1, 5, 10, 6, 4, 10, 6, 4, 2, 5, 2, 1, 8, 9, 4, 7, 1, 8, 10, 3, 2, 8, 10, 2, 8, 6, 8, 9, 3, 5, 8, 4, 9, 8 and 9. Total: 205. Successes: 26.
  209. <DM> (You can hookshot partway up its tail)
  210. <Hal> (What are it's passives?)
  211. <DM> (Indomitable, aka can't be Silenced, Unfocused, or Immobilized)
  212. <DM> (And Massive Target, aka can't defend, but its attack dice can't be lowered, and it can't be Phased Out)
  213. <Darte> 17h6m | Grumpy | 1 charge
  214. <Darte> $34d10
  215. <Navi> Darte: You rolled 34 Dice with 10 Sides. Results: 3, 7, 4, 6, 9, 8, 8, 9, 6, 6, 3, 3, 7, 10, 2, 10, 1, 10, 10, 3, 8, 5, 10, 6, 7, 4, 4, 10, 3, 1, 9, 6, 8 and 3. Total: 209. Successes: 28.
  216. * Hal casts Sponge on himself
  217. <DM> *Kirran and Darte, you two strike several bones on the way down. Run 40 - your successes - your armor.
  218. <DM> *for damage
  219. * Hal equips his Warlock Blade and goes for Fury Slashes on Godzilla!
  220. <DM> [Mask Man]: Well, you see... the Light World and its lands have... not much to offer in pets. The largest creature there would be a many-headed Gleeok. It truly is not much.
  221. <Kirran> $1d3
  222. <Navi> Kirran: You rolled 1 Die with 3 Sides. Result: 1.
  223. <Kirran> Nope.
  224. <DM> *I'd say roll it, but because that's a set damage and it can't defend..... auto-result, Hal!
  225. <Corsava> Oh,
  226. <Darte> 14h6m | Grumpier | 1 charge
  227. * Hal siphons 9 Courage from Godzilla
  228. * Kirran dodges getting boned.
  229. <DM> *Kirran, you phase through the bony branches while Darte gets boned.
  230. <DM> [Mask Man]: But here, my oh my....
  231. <DM> *He rubs his hands together, starting to shake in excitement.
  232. * Hal runs back as fast as he could.
  233. <Hal> 21h 6m 4rp | +2 Armor | +9 Courage | Shield
  234. <DM> [Mask Man]: There are creatures of untold horrors here! Creatures that, if I bend to my will, can assist me with whatever I desire! Their power becomes infinite, and the destruction that my God wills knows no bounds!
  235. <DM> *Hal, you find yourself able to zip back much faster than before.
  236. <DM> *Kirran and Darte, you eventually land in its stomach. There, you see the shining.... something, glowing from under a lake of acid.
  237. <DM> *It would appear the Golden Shield does not float in acid.
  238. <DM> *Hal, you notice the Argarok turn around in place, now turning towards you.
  239. <DM> *Would you like to stay there or try and keep on its backside?
  240. <Darte> (Dangit DM, a fishing minigame?)
  241. <DM> ^_^
  242. <DM> (You're a fishman, so clearly, that'll help you, right?)
  243. <Corsava> "Oh. How do you bend them to your will? I mean, even this thing seems way too massive to control."
  244. * Hal keeps to its backside.
  245. <DM> [Mask Man]: Ahh, size matters not! As long as its will is weak, the power of madness will transform them into a pet under my will!
  246. <DM> (Hal, to clarify, are you on its back or did you jump off of it?)
  247. <DM> [Mask Man]: The great thing about a corpse is that it has no will, because it's dead!
  248. <Hal> (jumped off it)
  249. <DM> [Mask Man]: A simple endeavor, if I do say so myself!
  250. <Darte> (How big is this shield right now?)
  251. <Corsava> "Wait, how do you drive a corpse mad?"
  252. * Corsava looks down at her mark
  253. <Corsava> "Actually...I guess I kind of did half of that."
  254. <DM> (A little larger than a Hylian Shield, round in shape, bar some degree of elegance)
  255. <DM> [Mask Man]: Precisely, precisely!

  261. <DM> *Yeah, Argarok easily turns in place to match you.

  266. <DM> *It still easily turns towards you.
  267. <DM> [Mask Man]: And, not only that, but here, there are Spirits of Light! Beings wrought down from the Goddesses themselves! If you truly desire my help in fighting these Interlopers... well....
  268. <DM> [Mask Man]: I'd be more than happy to offer a dose of chaos and destruction... if you could just hand one of them.
  269. * Darte first attempts to fire a bomb at the shield with his Gravity Slingshot, to see whether it's loose or not.
  270. <DM> *Darte, your bomb explodes the moment it strikes the acid. The ensuing shockwave flings some of the acid in all directions. Roll Courage to dodge against 30 successes!
  271. <Corsava> "It's...not at full power."
  272. <Corsava> "...but, I suppose madness could fix that, couldn't it?"
  273. <Darte> (No DD?)
  274. <DM> [Mask Man]: That's really no issue for me. I can give it alllll the power it needs!
  275. <DM> (w/ DD)

  279. <DM> *From your bow, Ordona speaks.
  280. <DM> [Ordona]: Wait, you're not actually considering this, are you?
  281. <DM> *Darte, a bit of the acid strikes you, dealing 4 Neutral Damage. Yeah, that stuff goes straight through armor.
  282. <Darte> "Great. Did anyone bring some Pepto, Tums, or Baking Soda?"
  283. * Corsava thinks at her 'Of course not! But I need to keep him talking until Kirran can retrieve the shield'
  284. * Darte downs a Restoration Heart.
  285. <DM> *AFKirran stands next to you, staring blankly ahead.

  298. * Hal was aiming at Godzilla's head
  299. <DM> *Yeah, your deku nut does...... not reach- well, okay.
  300. <DM> *Your deku nut explodes mid-air between you two. That said..... roll against yourself.
  301. <Hal> (Roll Courage + Defense?)
  302. <DM> (yeah)
  303. * Darte crosses his arms and waits for Kirran to snap out of his bone reverie.

  310. <DM> *BLIND!
  311. <Hal> Whew
  312. <DM> *Its head snaps down, devouring the ground next to you. Its head is stuck for a bit.
  313. <DM> *Also, due to the way it's tilting its body.... let's see, that would mean....
  314. <Corsava> "Wait, how would you give it more power? Aren't you taxed by empowering this creature?"
  315. <DM> *Darte and Kirran, you guys feel the body move, and you notice the acid is tilting and creeping towards you rapidly.
  316. <Corsava> "It can't be easy, giving it life while it's dead and all."
  317. * Hal grabs his Warlock Blade and runs to behind Godzilla
  318. <DM> [Mask Man]: Oh, I'm afraid I'm not at liberty to give away my methods. Chaos incarnate might consume me for giving too much away, kyeh kyeh kyeh!
  319. <DM> *Alrighty. Hal, you're free to wail on it again.
  320. * Darte hookshots to the... ceiling?

  326. * Hal siphons another 9 Courage
  327. <Hal> 21h 6m 4rp | +2 Armor | +18 Courage | Shield
  328. <DM> *Darte, your hookshot manages to impale into the ceiling, piercing its skin and letting you hang from the ceiling of the stomach.
  329. * AFKirran uses song of soaring to float up into the air
  330. * Hal should have recovered 4 magic from Magic regen by now
  331. * Darte missed his opportunity to carry Kirran with him.
  332. <DM> (that's fine, Hal)
  333. <Hal> 21h 10m 4rp | +2 Armor | +18 Courage | Shield
  334. <DM> *AFKirran, you dodge the acid. A bit later, the body reorients itself, and the lake reverts to its original location, with the two of you hovering over it.
  335. <Darte> "This was well planned."
  336. * Kirran lands and uses his magnetic gloves on the shield.
  337. <DM> [Mask Man]: So, unless there's something else of equal value you can offer...
  338. <Kirran> lands on not the acid lake*
  339. <DM> *He holds his hand out in your direction.
  340. <DM> *Your Magnetic Gloves fail to move the shield.
  341. <DM> *It would seem the Golden Artifacts do not react to magnets.
  342. <Kirran> (Did the shield move at all when the lake did?)
  343. <DM> (it nudged just slightly, but reverted to its location afterwards)
  344. * Hal this time stays on the backside of Godzilla
  345. <DM> [Ordona]: If he takes me, Corsava... maybe he can help you now, but you'll be almost certainly dooming the fate of Hyrule.
  346. * Darte tries to swing himself back to safe ground.
  347. <Corsava> [to Ordona] 'Yeah, and besides, you're the only light spirit that can power up my bow.'
  348. <DM> [Ordona]: On the contrary, any Light Spirit can react to any Golden Artifact.
  349. <DM> [Ordona]: ...... why do I get the feeling I should not have said that.
  350. <DM> [Ordona]: ......
  351. <Corsava> "...What."
  352. <DM> *Ordona suddenly emerges, leaving your bow and staying behind you, keeping you between it and Mask Man.
  353. <DM> [Mask Man]: Ah, so you're willing!
  354. * Corsava "No."
  355. <Corsava> "She did that on her own. Maybe she wants to talk."
  356. <DM> [Ordona]: I'm not here to talk. I just suddenly don't trust either of you.
  357. * Kirran rolls a deku nut into the lake of acid from as far away as he can get
  358. <DM> *The deku nut rolls in, its hard shell protecting it for a little bit. Eventually, the acid melts through it, and it explodes, flashing in a burst of light under the acid lake, though not shockwaving the acid into you.
  359. <DM> .......... well played Kirran
  360. <DM> *The acid neutralizes. Just slightly. It's still bubbly though.
  361. * Kirran starts pulling more deku nuts and rolling them into the acid.
  362. <DM> *Hal, the Argarok does not turn towards you. However, it does start lifting its leg.
  363. <DM> *I should note, a shockwave of that strength at point-blank can't be jumped.
  364. * Hal looks for a Hookshot target away from its shockwave range.
  365. <DM> [Mask Man]: Now, do you truly wish the demise of the Interlopers?
  366. <DM> *Its tail is in hookshot range.
  367. * Hal hookshots over to its tail.
  368. <DM> [Mask Man]: Or will you try to fight them in futility, knowing you could have gained my services?
  369. <DM> [Mask Man]: You could save the Twilight Realm, and with that... all of Hyrule.
  370. <DM> [Mask Man]: What I ask for is merely a small price to pay. It's just one of four Spirits of Light.
  371. <Hal> (Do I get the +6 Bonus from my innate when hookshotting to its tail?)
  372. <DM> (you auto-hookshot to it)
  373. * Darte realizes something, and fires an Icicle Blade at the shield, attempting to knock it loose.
  374. <Corsava> "I mean, if I refuse, I assume you're just going to kill me and take Ordona, right? I mean, it's not like she's presently powerful enough to power this bow up enough to kill you."
  375. <DM> *Argarok stamps down its foot. At that moment, however, Mask Man's warp shield displaces itself, redirecting the shockwave to go through the Argarok, instead of outwards.
  376. * Corsava glances at Ordona, as though signaling her to correct me again
  377. <Hal> (Um. Is the Warp shield long enough?)
  378. <Hal> *Big enough to do that
  379. <DM> *Mask Man does not have the Warp Shield around him at the moment.
  380. <DM> *On the flipside....

  388. <DM> *Kirran and Darte, you're in the process of unloading your nuts into the acid when suddenly, the whole stomach shakes, and the vat of acid lifts into the air, striking the whole stomach cavity, you two with it.

  406. * Hal safely lands
  407. <DM> *Hal, you ukemi and land safely.
  408. <Hal> (Can I go wail on it again?)
  409. <DM> *The deku nuts you unloaded, after a little while, finally melt into it.
  410. <DM> *The acid stops bubbling and clears up a bit. You now see clearly where goo-Darte is.
  411. <DM> (Yep, fire in the hole!)
  412. * Hal brings out his Warlock Blade and then fury slashes it again!
  413. <DM> *The Warp Shield reappears around Mask Man.
  414. <DM> *Hal, you now feel really super speedy.
  415. * Kirran flies up again using the song of soaring and uses his magic shackles to grab the handle of the shield.

  433. <DM> *KIrran, you grab the shield!
  434. <Kirran> Yoink
  435. * Kirran repeats the procedure with Darte's bedraggled body.
  436. <DM> *Mask Man doesn't even turn around to face you, Corsava.

  438. <DM> *Kirran, you're now holding a goo-covered Golden Shield. Congrats.
  439. <DM> *So.... how do you plan on exiting?
  440. <DM> *Corsava, from behind Mask Man, you see him pull out... why, a Mask! It's a white mask with red markings over it, kind of similar to some Sheikah markings...
  441. <Kirran> Hookshotting up it's throat, naturally.
  442. <Kirran> After I revive Darte, somehow.
  443. <DM> [Mask Man]: One Mask of Truth, coming right up!
  444. <DM> *He leans over to put the Mask of Truth onto Ordona.
  445. * Kirran hookshots into the throat of the beast.
  446. * Hal plays the Song of Soaring and attempts to fly up to Godzilla's head
  447. <DM> *Corsava, with your Spirit Vision, you see a very flared soul inside the Mask of Truth, complete with an extreme amount of madness.
  448. <DM> *Hal, you fly on up, and thanks to your increased speed, you see what's happening. Mask Man planting a Mask of Truth onto Ordona, complete with the Spirit Vision thingy.
  449. <DM> [Mask Man]: Annnnnnd there we.... go!
  450. <DM> *The mask plants into Ordona, then dissipates.

  490. * Hal carries Ordona down to the ground and attempts to remove the mask planted onto her!
  491. <DM> *However, as you grab Ordona, you feel your madness flare within you. Looking at Ordona's body, purple colored energy is coursing through its hollow form. Flames of madness seem to be rising from within, restoring its power, and amplifying your own madness. With Block up, it's keeping your control on.... for now.
  492. <DM> *Roll your Power!
  493. <Hal> $16d10
  494. <Navi> Hal: You rolled 16 Dice with 10 Sides. Results: 4, 5, 1, 8, 5, 5, 5, 3, 1, 8, 3, 5, 9, 7, 1 and 8. Total: 78. Successes: 10.
  495. <DM> *You reach into Ordona, trying to grab the mask. You manage to, but..... you can't quite pull the mask out. The energy flaring within Ordona starts to flow into you through your arm.
  496. <DM> *Kirran, in the meantime, you cause a surge of pain, enough to cause the Argarok to open its mouth, but only for a moment. It clamps back down almost instantly.
  497. <DM> *You may need something a bit stronger than that to zip out in time.
  498. <DM> *One more action, and Block will fall.
  499. * Corsava teleports to my trident
  500. <DM> *From above, the mega Argarok tries to swat you with its head. Though, it's.... sluggish. Hal, roll Courage to defend!
  501. <DM> $23d10 Argarok
  502. <Navi> DM: You rolled 23 Dice with 10 Sides. Results: 1, 10, 9, 7, 8, 1, 9, 10, 4, 9, 10, 9, 8, 2, 5, 1, 6, 5, 9, 1, 10, 3 and 3. Total: 140. Successes: 19.
  503. * Kirran punches the damn thing in the tongue with the full force of the guantlets, after putting some arrows in between the fingers for good measure.
  504. <DM> [Mask Man]: That's odd, I could've sworn this thing was a tad faster...
  505. <Hal> $52
  506. <Kirran> $46d10
  507. <Navi> Kirran: You rolled 46 Dice with 10 Sides. Results: 10, 1, 6, 5, 9, 2, 5, 6, 3, 5, 5, 10, 2, 5, 8, 1, 8, 6, 10, 6, 3, 1, 10, 4, 7, 5, 2, 7, 5, 5, 9, 5, 5, 5, 9, 4, 6, 4, 9, 9, 8, 4, 8, 9, 8 and 5. Total: 269. Successes: 38.

  509. <Navi> Hal: You rolled 52 Dice with 10 Sides. Total: 277. Successes: 35.
  510. * Hal recasts the barrier, this time 16h now
  511. * Kirran and just for good measure, I drop a couple of super bombs down it's gullet.
  512. * Hal backs off and casts Roots on Ordona!
  513. <DM> *Right as Argarok tries to open its mouth to try and eat you (despite being too slow), a great jolt of pain forces its mouth open wider than intended, keeping it there. Kirran, you see a flying Hal with a floating madness-growing Ordona.
  514. <DM> *Corsava, you zip back to the ground, near Midna.
  515. * Corsava tries to look into Ordona's madness to see if I can absorb it
  516. * Kirran teleports out after dropping the bombs in
  517. <Kirran> and then flies to the ground.
  518. <Corsava> "Oh hey, Midna. I forgot you were there."
  519. <DM> *It might work, Corsava, though you'd have to get point-blank.
  520. * Corsava grabs my trident "Take me to the light spirit."
  521. <DM> *Looking towards Midna, you see that almost all of the Twili are gone. She's extending her shadow around the Twili.
  522. <DM> [Midna]: Keep holding them off. I'm almost done transporting the Twili away with my group teleport.
  523. <DM> *Corsava, you zip on over to the trident.
  524. <DM> ...... wait
  525. <DM> *Corsava, you zip on over to Ordona!
  526. <DM> *Kirran, you land on the ground, turning just in time to see Argarok try to close its mouth, only to immediately reopen it painfully with the advent of a bunch of bombs.
  527. <DM> *It does indeed breath fire.... at you, Kirran!
  528. <Kirran> $1d3
  529. <Navi> Kirran: You rolled 1 Die with 3 Sides. Result: 3.
  530. * Hal places Ordona on the ground and steps away a bit, making sure to hold Ordona down with a serving of Roots.
  531. <DM> *However, its fire breath is particularly..... slow.
  532. * Kirran teleports the heck out of the way.
  533. <DM> *Good call, because the area you were just in spontaneously gets vaporized.
  534. <DM> *Hal, you root Ordona down, able to pull your hand away from it.
  535. * Hal pulled his hand away from it
  536. <DM> *Corsava, you're at Ordona!
  537. <DM> [Mask Man]: That's it. NOW you've done it!
  538. <DM> *Mask Man spawns a Chaos Orb over him...... annnnnnd starts charging.
  539. * Corsava puts my hand onto her face and sighs, activating my mark, stealing her madness
  540. * Kirran leaves Darte's body with the group and dashes as fast as he can for the place the last light spirit is.
  541. <DM> *You folks notice the Chaos Orb start to circle around Mask Man and grow in size.
  542. * Darte grows a small plant. A sapling. So small, one might even call it
  543. <Darte> a fish stick
  544. <Hal> (Would Hal's Block block the Chaos Orb's Effect?)
  545. <DM> *Corsava, you grab its madness, gaining a dot on your mark. All seems well.
  546. <Corsava> "...huh,"
  547. <DM> *Ordona seems to return to normal, albeit unconscious.
  548. <Corsava> "I...was led to believe that wouldn't work."
  549. * Corsava touches the bow to her and checks to see if she goes in
  550. <DM> *Hal, the mask reappears from within Ordona.
  551. <DM> *Ordona zaps into your bow.... including the Mask of Truth!
  552. <DM> *Hal, you look over to your Gerudo partner, and within her soul, you it start to.... malform slightly.
  553. * Hal tries to get Ordona out of the bow
  554. <DM> *Hal, are you grabbing the bow?
  555. <DM> (yo Darte, get into #zurpg2)
  556. <Hal> (That's filled with madness, right now)
  557. <DM> (indeed it is)
  558. * Corsava starts trying to drain the madness from the bow
  559. <DM> *Uhh, Hal, try and state how you're getting Ordona out of the bow.
  560. <Hal> (Looks like I can't, but is there any way to stem the growth of the madness?)
  561. <DM> (you can...... if you absorb it into your own body)
  562. <DM> [Mask Man]: IT'S PARTY TIME!
  563. <Hal> (Can I contain her in something?)
  564. <DM> *Mask Man aims a REALLY BIG CHAOS ORB in your general direction, which will hit both of you!
  565. <DM> (uhh, what do you mean?)
  566. <Hal> (Put her into a container where her mad influence won't reach us)
  567. <DM> (sure, if you can pull her out of the bow)
  568. <Hal> (And I will start getting afflicted by madness)
  569. * Corsava teleports onto the monster somewhere out of the blast radius
  570. <Hal> (Shoot)
  571. * Hal looks like he can't do that anymore
  572. <DM> *Corsava, you're carrying the bow, and you've landed...... pick a spot.
  573. * Hal runs around the monster to approximately where Corsava teleports to.
  574. * Corsava picks its foot
  575. * Corsava breaks the bow into the two scimitars
  576. <DM> *Instead of teleporting, you transform it into a pair of scimitars, releasing Ordona from the bow.
  577. <DM> *Though, you do notice the dot you gained earlier is now missed from your mark.
  578. <Hal> (What containers do we have available?)
  579. <DM> (a bottle is not big enough)
  580. <DM> (a body would work)
  581. <DM> *Ordona has gone back to flaring up with madness, seemingly having yoinked it back from Corsava.
  582. <Hal> (Aka me or Corsava... which is going to be bad)
  583. <DM> *She has not woken back up yet.
  584. * Corsava starts to work at siphoning madness away from her again
  585. * Hal prepares to run as soon as Ordona has been drained of madness.
  586. <DM> *You do so.... annnnd right then, Mask Man launches the uber Chaos Orb!
  587. <DM> *Do you keep siphoning the madness or do you run like you stole something?
  588. * Hal takes Ordona and runs away from the blast.
  589. <DM> *You try and move Ordona, but uhh...... Ordona is rooted.
  590. <DM> *She can be teleported, but not moved.
  591. <Corsava> ...
  592. * Corsava grabs her and teleports to the monster's foot
  593. * Hal runs around to where Corsava teleports to.
  594. <DM> *Corsava, to do so suddenly, you would have to cancel your siphon. Do you wish to proceed?
  595. * Corsava hides behind her and continues siphoning
  596. <DM> *Alright, you use Ordona as a shield, and right as you finish siphoning the madness, the massive Chaos Orb strikes Ordona...... filled with more madness than you just siphoned!
  597. * Corsava sighs
  598. * Hal blocks the blast
  599. <DM> [Mask Man]: Ah, a multi-layered plan! I think Bloodwind would get a kick out of this one, yes yes!
  600. <DM> *Hal, have fun trying to take the hit.
  601. <Hal> (Was AFK for that moment)

  621. <DM> *Corsava, you see Hal before you growing large claws and fangs and growing in size.
  622. <Hal> Corsava, run as fast as you can.
  623. <Corsava> "Uh...Were-Hal?"
  624. <Hal> Or try to steal madness from me
  625. <DM> *Hal's voice comes out really distorted as he says that.
  626. <Corsava> "Don't need to tell me twice."
  627. * Corsava fires her trident off into the distance
  628. * Corsava tries to siphon off Hal's madness
  629. <DM> *Darte-goo, you find yourself reviving.... from a Twilight Fairy! Next to you, Midna stands over you.
  630. <DM> [Midna]: With the power of a Twilight Fairy... I can teleport you anywhere in the Twilight Realm. Do you wish to help your friends, or is there a different location you'd like to choose?
  631. <DM> *Corsava, you siphon it off, though.... you've been siphoning a lot today already.
  632. <DM> *You gain another dot on your mark..... but it immediately fades and is consumed...... into you.
  633. <DM> *Hal, you return to your senses, just in time to see Corsava lose hers!
  634. <Hal> Corsava!
  635. <Hal> No!
  636. * Corsava teleports to my trident
  637. <DM> *Corsava, a dark magic starts to surround and consume you. You have lost control of yourself.
  638. <DM> *You try to teleport with the last of your will, but your trident ends up teleporting to you.
  639. <Hal> We have no time to waste. We need to take Ordona away!
  640. <Hal> 21h 2m 3rp | +8 Armor | +27 Courage | 8h on barrier
  641. <DM> *Hal, you remember reading some legends about the power of Ganondorf. What you're looking at and feeling from Corsava appears to be EXTREMELY SIMILAR.
  642. <Hal> AAAAAA!!!
  643. * Hal quickly burns off Ordona's roots and dashes off to Midna
  644. * DM pokes Darte with Midna's question from a bit ago. Got an answer?
  645. <DM> *Corsava doesn't transform into anything. More, her eyes glow with purple flames of chaos, and she's now passively radiating the same chaos orbs that Mask Man can draw up.
  646. <DM> *Midna turns to see a screaming Hal, and beyond that, Corsava being evil-fied.
  647. <Hal> Midna, do you know of anything that will get rid of Ordona's madness?
  648. * Darte considers maybe the fairy fountain thing if that's still around; otherwise, hmmm. Zuph's workshop with the materials to get more crystals?
  649. <DM> [Midna]: Her what now?
  650. <Hal> Long story short Masked Man has injected madness into her and, unless we do something, she's going to become mad!
  651. <DM> *She looks over to Corsava, then back to you, Hal.
  652. <DM> [Midna]: Going to or has become?
  653. <Hal> (Is the madness returning to Ordona?)
  654. <Hal> She's unconscious right now, but if we don't do something she's going to turn evil.
  655. <DM> *There is still some madness left in Ordona, and a crapton more in Corsava.
  656. <DM> *Mask Man announces loudly from atop his pet.
  657. <Hal> (Am I close to the limit of how much madness I can absorb?)
  658. <DM> (Yep. Corsava yoinked enough back to revert the transformation, but I recommend against trying to absorb more)
  659. <Darte> (Can she teleport me to the last light spirit?)
  660. <DM> (Yes)
  661. <Hal> (So don't absorb more right)
  662. <DM> [Mask Man]: Tell you all what. I'll be more than happy return your teammate back to you AND fight the Interlopers..... if you'll just give me that Light Spirit!
  663. <Darte> (Do it)
  664. <Hal> Midna, this will only be good for us in the short term. We will get rid of the interlopers, but then he will destroy the world afterwards.
  665. <DM> *As your wish passes onto Midna, she seems to be reluctant... then closes her eyes and focuses your teleport.
  666. <Hal> *he
  667. <DM> *Darte, you return to full strength....... and zip on over!
  668. <DM> *She opens her eyes and turns back to you, Hal.
  669. <DM> [Midna]: Why are you bothering with his demands at this point?
  670. <DM> *She flexes all of her shadow fists as she directs herself in Corsava's direction.
  671. <Hal> Alright. Do you know of a way of getting rid of madness?
  672. <DM> [Midna]: Kill the vessel, right?
  673. <DM> (She's not wrong...)
  674. <Corsava> "I can see it all now! The glorious true purpose! My plan is sheer elegance in its simplicity!"
  675. <DM> [Mask Man]: ... new plan.
  676. <DM> *Mask Man snaps his fingers... and then starts floating.
  677. <Hal> Or at the very least, keep her knocked out.
  678. <DM> *Hal, you see Godzilla start to tip... to the side... in Corsava and Ordona's direction.
  679. <Hal> We need to keep her unconscious until we can get rid of the madness
  680. <DM> [Midna]: ... what is he doing?
  681. * Hal takes Ordona and tries to run!
  682. <Hal> He's trying to take Ordona or something.
  683. <DM> *Hal, you last ran to Midna. You'd have to run back over to Ordona, aka next to Corsava.
  684. * Darte gains his bearings, preparing his Sacred Golden Arrow by holding it outstretched before him. "Hey, Light Spirit; you here? We could kinda use a hand."
  685. <Hal> (I said I took Ordona to Midna)
  686. <DM> (ooooooooooooooooooh)
  687. <DM> *scratch the tipping thing then, I missed a line
  688. <DM> (haaaaang on Darte, copy that line and prepare to post it into #zurpg2)
  689. <DM> *Corsava, you emerge from your monologue, all powered up and ready to do whatever you wish! Chaos Orbs are at your disposal, and you feel vastly powered up! You're also freely levitating.
  690. <DM> *You see Hal and Ordona, two sources of madness, running away from you. Between you and them, Midna stands in your way.
  691. <DM> *More...... more power. More madness.
  692. * Corsava teleports to Ordona
  693. * Corsava swirls the chaos orbs around me quickly, so that they're like an offensive shield
  694. <Corsava> "SHEER ELEGENCE!!!!!"
  695. <DM> [Mask Man]: Now, GO my........ pet?
  696. <DM> *Mask Man tries to point in the direction, but the great Argarok won't move.
  697. * Hal fires a Wind Torrent at Corsava!

  708. <Hal> Ack! I could really do with a Thunderspark right now!
  709. <DM> *Mask Man snaps his fingers, and after a moment, a large swirling of chaos appears below Godzilla Argarok, pulling it down into a portal of dark, contrasting colors.
  710. <DM> *Hal, the Chaos Orbs are still as is, all three of them swirling in tandem.
  711. <Hal> (37 Defense Dice...)
  712. <DM> *Do you launch an attack at Hal or go for Ordona?

  746. <DM> *Right at that moment, with two you restrained, Mask Man appears, teleporting next to Ordona.

  769. <DM> *You find yourself freezing in place, as something grips your shadow.
  770. <DM> *You're just.... stuck in place, dancing.... but stuck. You look kind of like an action figure.
  771. <DM> *Mask Man suddenly appears point blank to Midna.
  772. <DM> *Hal, you look and see Mask Man, but you don't see a soul...
  773. * Corsava grins
  774. <DM> *Midna retracts her shadow hands, all of them, then raises them, readying to pummel Mask Man.
  775. <DM> *Corsava, you're still locked in place.
  776. <DM> [Midna]: Teleporting around like a mad man? Know your place, imbecil!
  777. <Hal> Midna!, That's an illusion
  778. * Hal leaps to grab Ordona
  779. <DM> *She's pulls the Shadow Hands in towards the illusion, only to see the illusion fade instantly.
  780. <DM> *A voice speaks directly into Midna's ear from behind.
  781. <DM> [Mask Man]: Wrong move!
  782. * Hal looks around for where Masked Man might be teleporting to
  783. <DM> *Midna immediately turns around, and right as you look, Hal, you see Mask Man appearing behind her, along with a slight water splash from the illusion of sound that he just used to get Midna to turn the wrong way.
  784. <DM> [Mask Man]: Have fun!
  785. <Hal> Midna, look behind you!
  786. <DM> *Midna turns around again just in time to have a Mask of Truth plastered into her Fused Shadow Mask.
  787. <DM> [Mask Man]: Oh looky! A triple trick!
  788. <Hal> (I am screaming internally)
  789. * Corsava tries to move my fingers or my tongue
  790. <Hal> (Can Midna defend against this?)
  791. <DM> [Mask Man]: My, Bloodwind's illusion tricks are truly the illusory treats that cannot be beat!
  792. <Hal> (Because it seems pretty unfair if he can do it without a defensive roll)

  811. <Corsava> "Too late, princess.
  812. * Corsava looks over at Hal to see if he has any madness in him
  813. <DM> *She grasps desperately at her mask, only to grab at air as it dissolves into nothingness.
  814. <Corsava> "Surrender."
  815. <Hal> (Doesn't Midna have resistance to madness?)
  816. <DM> (If anything, Twili has absolute jack zip resistance to madness)
  817. <Hal> (Because she follows Fierce Deity, so she would have resistance)
  818. <DM> (Polar opposites)
  819. <DM> [Mask Man]: Odd.... I should have your mask now, but I don't know where it just went. Oh well, this will do!
  820. <DM> *She starts breathing heavily, crazed a bit and looking all around her in a panic as her shadow hands fade away to nothing.

  847. <DM> *Mask Man appears behind you, and he physically REACHES INTO you from behind.
  848. * Corsava moans
  849. <DM> *He leans in close before your strike lands, and whispers into your ear.
  850. <DM> [Mask Man]: Thanks for the meal.
  851. <DM> *With one hand, he siphons the madness from you, and with the other, he channels the beam directly at Ordona.
  852. <DM> *Hal, you're just barely saved from getting shanked as you see Mask Man's hand rip through Corsava's chest.
  853. <DM> *The power in her quickly fades as her consciousness returns to normal.
  854. <Hal> Corsava! Do something to break the channelled beam!
  855. <DM> *Corsava, you look down and see that your period is happening in a rather unusual location in your body.
  856. * Corsava eyes widen "H-Hal! Oh shit, are you alr-"
  857. * Corsava looks down "Oh shit. Am I alright?"
  858. <DM> *Corsava, you proceed to kindly pass out.
  859. <DM> *Mask Man pulls his hand back and finishes channeling.
  860. * Corsava smirks and collapses, muttering "trustfall."
  861. <DM> [Mask Man]: There there, sleep now.
  862. <DM> *The ground catches you. And as established earlier, the ground was kind of broken up, so you land on several spikes and bleed out. Even more.
  863. <DM> [Mask Man]: And, as per our agreement...... I shall assist you against the Interlopers. If you're excuse me...
  864. <DM> *if you'll
  865. * Hal consumes a Chateou Romani and Fairy Beams Corsava
  866. <DM> *A chaotic portal appears below the now-madness infused Ordona.
  867. <Hal> (quickly brb)
  868. <DM> *err super madness-infused Ordona
  869. * Corsava stands up, shakily
  870. <DM> *Mask Man holds his hand out towards Ordona, pulling her down into the portal.
  871. <DM> *Corsava, you see an Ordona half-descended into the portal.
  872. <Corsava> "Ooooooooh, that's bad."
  873. <Hal> (brb)
  874. <Hal> Quick, get her out!
  875. * Corsava runs over to her and tries to grab her and teleport to...who still has madness at this point?
  876. * Corsava teleports to Hal
  877. <DM> *The portal closes, Mask Man has disappeared....... and Corsava, you have an Ordona in your hands. But.... she feels shallow, somehow.
  878. <DM> *Looking at Ordona's soul, it's like you only grabbed a part of Ordona. None of the madness, though.
  879. * Corsava "Well...that's...something."
  880. * Corsava carries her over to the Sol fountain
  881. <Hal> Part of her soul is better than none
  882. <DM> *At that point, the Sol Fountain, in the most hilariously spiteful timing, starts to glow once more.
  883. * Corsava dips her in
  884. <DM> *You hear the voice of the Mask Man echo throughout the air...
  885. <DM> [Mask Man]: Oh, you got half the beast back. Well, I guess you won't be getting my help. Have fun trying to save your Twili friends.
  886. * Corsava "Well, at least we...uh..."
  887. * Corsava looks over at the dragon-thing
  888. <Corsava> "Well, it's not here anymore."
  889. * Corsava "Ordona...I'm sorry I couldn't save all of you. I'd been trying to keep him talking long enough that my allies would show up, but...that didn't quite work out."
  890. <DM> *Looking around, there's you, Hal, and a madness-filled Midna..... though, the other kind of psychological madness, not that physical flaming madness.
  891. <DM> *Ordona wakes up.
  892. * Corsava "Midna. Are you of sound mind?"
  893. * Corsava "Hal, come here, we need to put together a plan. Quickly."
  894. <Hal> Midna, is not of sound mind
  895. <Corsava> "Well, too fucking bad. Her city is under attack, which means sound mind or no, she's got to get in gear."
  896. * Hal comes over to Corsava
  897. <Hal> It seems as if these are desperate times now.
  898. * Corsava is clearly a bit...bitter about having been maddened completely, and then having failed to do the one thing she absorbed the madness to do.
  899. * Corsava "Well, let's figure out how we're going to annihilate the Interlopers."
  900. <Corsava> "Way I see it, we've still got half an Ordona, plus whatever light spirits are at the capital."
  901. <Hal> Masked Man has the mad half of Ordona, Midna has gone mad and chances are Kirran and Darte are getting ganked by Dark Link and the other interlopers
  902. <Corsava> "My trident can still be used with the bow to teleport us great distances."
  903. <Corsava> "Way I see it, if nothing we do matters, then the only thing that matters is what we do."
  904. <DM> [Ordona]: You two... must.... go... to the Twilight Palace.
  905. <DM> *Ordona, despite recharging in the fountain, seems to be recoiling from something...
  906. <Corsava> "I don't intend to let our friends down."
  907. <Hal> (Can the Sol Fountain power up?)
  908. <DM> [Ordona]: Something... has happened to... Lanayru. I can... feel it.
  909. <Darte> "... Kirran. Strip down. NOW."
  910. <DM> (It's in the process of doing so)
  911. <DM> ...... uhh
  912. <DM> Darte
  913. <DM> wrong channel
  914. <DM> holy out of context batman
  915. <Darte> LOL
  916. <Hal> No...
  917. <Hal> Dark Link
  918. <Hal> He must be doing something to her
  919. <Hal> Can the sol fountain power up?
  920. <Hal> *power us up
  921. <DM> WHELP
  922. <DM> THAT UHH...... UHHHHHHHHHHHH
  923. <Corsava> "Midna! Snap the fuck out of it! I am not teleporting my ass all the way to *your* city to fight against its invaders without you."
  924. <DM> *Midna quietly snaps as the fourth wall out-of-context break just passes her out from psychologically induced madness.
  925. <Corsava> "...Son of a bitch. Hal, grab whatever sols you think we'll need and let's go. Midna and Ordona need the rest."
  926. <Hal> Alright.
  927. * Corsava grabs Midna and drops her into the Sol fountain
  928. <Hal> It's just the two of us now.
  929. <Corsava> This'll keep her safe in case any of the little buggers decide to get any ideas.
  930. * Corsava draws my bow, dips it into the Sol fountain, and then loads up my trident
  931. * Hal wears the Shadowbeast Necklace
  932. <Hal> We've got allies.
  933. <Hal> There should still be the Twili army ready to help us
  934. <Corsava> "I can't believe I'm actually going to be teleporting my ass all the way to the Twili palace to fight against its invaders without the city's fucking leader."
  935. <Hal> And if worst comes to worst, I can summon Shadow Beasts to my aid.
  936. * Corsava kisses Midna, more out of spite than anything else, and then aims in the direction of Twili Town.
  937. * Hal grabs onto Corsava.
  938. <Corsava> "Grab on. This is a bit uncomfortable the first few jumps."
  939. <Hal> Ready?
  940. * Corsava fires the shot
  941. <Corsava> "let's fucking die like legends."
  942. * Corsava teleports to the trident, loads it up, and fires again
  943. <DM> *You fire the first time, teleporting over nicely. Hal, on the other hand, feels a sudden rush of motion sickness and temporal displacement.
  944. <DM> *You teleport on over on the next time, and Hal is kindly throwing up a rainbow of censored sickness on the ground next to you.
  945. * Corsava takes a rope and ties him to me "Sorry, buddy, but this is our only way of quickly travelling there."
  946. * Corsava keeps up the teleport shot
  947. <DM> *Corsava, within only 2 jumps, the Twilight Palace is in sight.
  948. <Corsava> "Hey, isn't there normally an anti-teleportation dome?"
  949. <DM> *Shot three, and you think you can make it to the other side of the Gravity Bridge in one more shot. Though, you also notice the madness in your Trident running out. You think it's got one more shot left in it.
  950. <DM> *You do not see a barrier.
  951. <Corsava> "What's it going to be, buddy? We can get to the other side of the bridge, and I can have no more charges for that teleport, or we can hoof it and give you time to clear up your teleportation sickness."
  952. <Hal> Hoof it
  953. <Hal> Don't need to teleport yet
  954. * Corsava nods "Yeah, I sort of figured. You look a bit...unwell."
  955. <DM> *Hal, you finally get used to the displacement. .... kind of.
  956. <DM> *Up for one last jump?
  957. <Hal> (not quite yet)
  958. * Corsava Well, if we hoof it, I can charge up a siege blast.
  959. <Corsava> "Maybe we'll get lucky and there'll be another light spirit for me to absorb."
  960. <Corsava> "It seemed to work out really well the first time."
  961. <DM> (oh dear)
  962. <Hal> We need to save a siege blast for the other Interlopers
  963. <Hal> Dark Link is not the only problem
  964. <Corsava> "Yeah, that's...entirely fair.
  965. <Hal> We also have to consider the other Twili
  966. <Hal> They may be demanding the Mirror Shard
  967. <Hal> *the Interlopers
  968. <Hal> There is a good chance they are holding the Twili villages hostages.
  969. <Hal> *villages
  970. <Hal> *Villagers
  971. <Corsava> "Probably both."
  972. <Corsava> "But...at this point, I'm concerned less with collateral damage and more with actual survival of anyone."
  973. <Hal> I was fearing Midna would turn on us
  974. <Corsava> "If they win, everyone is dead."
  975. <Corsava> "You're dead, I'm dead, the village is dead, we're all dead."
  976. <Hal> We still need to keep Midna's trust
  977. <Corsava> "I was hoping that would happen, though...I mean, not once I stopped being...insane, obviously."
  978. * Corsava sighs
  979. <Hal> If we were the reason the Twili die, Midna will have no reason to help us
  980. <Corsava> "Fuck...it's like being stuffed in a cage in the back of your own mind and watching another part of you take control..."
  981. <Hal> And by that, we need to keep the mirror safe from the Interlopers
  982. * Corsava sighs "Oh, you meant- right."
  983. <Corsava> "Sorry...my mind is a bit..."
  984. <Corsava> "It's a little hard not to think about."
  985. <Corsava> "But, you're right. We need to be in the here and now."
  986. <Corsava> "I'll do my best."
  987. <Corsava> "But if I go full on 'nam flashbacks, I need you to remind me who I am."
  988. <Hal> If we get into a good position, we can eliminate the other Interlopers
  989. * Corsava "I wish I had that badass arrow. It would be insane with this bow."
  990. <DM> *Alright, are you two heading into with one more teleport, or just walking the rest of the way?
  991. * Corsava is walking towards the palace
  992. <DM> *You reach the palace, and before you can enter its lightless domain, your old friend returns....
