  3. <Kirran> (Darte, man of a million gifs.)
  4. <DM> -=QUEST CONTINUE=-
  5. <DM> *You regain your senses after being transported back from the grey realm.*
  6. <Darte> (I keep my pocket full of gifs, too bad it's so terrible at caching)
  7. <Red_Enrics> OH CRAP, EVERYTHING'S GREY
  8. <Kirran> Well, better than being full of blinding light.
  9. <DM> *You're now in a room, where five bright, focused lights shine throughout the room. One on the ceiling, and one on each of the walls.*
  10. <DM> [???]: Ahh, is it already this trial?
  11. <Dex> smash the lights
  12. <Dex> Smash the lights!
  13. <Dex> SMASH THE LIGHTS!
  14. <Dex> AN AR CHY WOOOO
  15. <DM> *The voice, similar to when you were fighting the Darkness, echoes from all around the room.*
  16. <Dex> DOWN WITH THE OPPRESSIVE PATRIARCHY
  17. <DM> [???]: I heard you defeated the first two trials.
  18. <Red_Enrics> You're damn right we did!
  19. <DM> [???]: Can you defeat me?
  20. * Red_Enrics shrugs
  21. <Red_Enrics> Probably not.
  22. <Red_Enrics> We've had so much trouble with the other two trials
  23. <Red_Enrics> We're gonna get wrecked
  24. <DM> [???]: I see. Well... no one has defeated me before.
  25. <Kirran> Why so gloomy Red?
  26. <Kirran> Assuming Dex finds a way to bend reality, we can't end up too badly off.
  27. <Red_Enrics> Well excuse me, SOMEBODY had to waste my both of my fairies.
  28. * Red_Enrics is grumpy.
  29. <Kirran> You can have my red potion if you want.
  30. * DM had no part in that. It was totally the light man. You just gotta not walk into the light.
  31. <DM> [???]: Let us... fight.
  32. <Dex> Forsoothe goode sirrah! I know not what thou talkest abouteth.
  33. <Red_Enrics> Explosions
  34. <Red_Enrics> We blew up multiple times
  35. <Red_Enrics> Like my great grandfather
  36. <Red_Enrics> Michael Bay Enrics the 5th
  37. * DM face-palms.
  38. <DM> *Red_Enrics, from now on, when you die, you will explode.*
  39. <Raine> Tee hee...
  40. <Raine> Exploding Red...Red everywhere...
  41. <DM> *The lights on the walls all focus on you all, one on each of you. Your shadows become apparent, and the voice of the Essence of Shadow bounces from one shadow to another.*
  42. * X_X is now known as Shadow
  43. * Darte is now known as Knuckles
  44. * Dex is now known as Fax
  45. * Kirran is now known as Darklink42
  46. <Fax> WE RIDE
  47. * Knuckles is now known as Darte
  48. <Darklink42> Ah HA!
  49. * DM grabs his 80 cal sniper rifle and readies to fire it from beyond the fourth wall.
  50. * Darklink42 is now known as Kirran
  51. * Fax is now known as Dex
  52. <DM> *Roll inits!*

  68. <Tatl> The battle has begun!
  69. <Tatl> ROUND 1: Shadow (10), Red_Enrics (8), Darte (6), Kirran (5) and Dex (1).
  70. <Tatl> Bonus Turns: Shadow (10).
  71. <Shadow> Hmm, I wonder...
  72. <Dex> What its like to be the first in space?
  73. * Shadow spawns another Light. It's now coming from the floor.
  74. <Darte> this is us now. http://i.imgur.com/Wi0MPSM.gif
  75. <DM> stats - http://zurpg.sephiroth.ws/thread-465-post-952.html#pid952
  76. <DM> ??h | 6 Lights
  77. <DM> wait
  78. <DM> WAIT
  79. <Shadow> ??h | 6 Lights
  80. <Shadow> $endturn
  81. <Tatl> Shadow has ended their turn.
  82. <Tatl> ROUND 1: Shadow (10), Red_Enrics (8), Darte (6), Kirran (5) and Dex (1).
  83. <Tatl> Bonus Turns Over! Round 1 Begins Now!
  84. * Shadow spawns a second light on the ceiling.
  85. <Shadow> $endturn
  86. <Tatl> Shadow has ended their turn.
  87. <Tatl> ROUND 1: Shadow (10), Red_Enrics (8), Darte (6), Kirran (5) and Dex (1).
  88. <Dex> Heeey.
  89. <Dex> If we don't do anything does that mean the shadows don't do anything?
  90. <Shadow> Those that stall infinitely will not pass this trial.
  91. <Darte> "If we don't move our shadows won't move. Sounds like a plan."
  92. <Kirran> Too simple a solution.
  93. <Darte> "...anyone got some light reading material?"
  94. <Shadow> I will end it at my own whim if you simply wait, and you will fail this trial.
  95. <Red_Enrics> 37h 11m | Auto Drunk Status
  96. <Kirran> I say we just kick the lights out.
  97. <Kirran> Or throw Dex at them.
  98. <Red_Enrics> Or throw the DM
  99. <Shadow> Let's give this... 5 rounds. If you do not defeat me at the end of 5 rounds, you automatically lose.
  100. <Dex> I wouldn't want to take the spotlight from you.
  101. * Darte shrugs. "This probably isn't an illusion, if they are as false as we've been led to believe."
  102. <Kirran> Illusions can still hurt us Darte. I think the light proved that pretty well with Red.
  103. <Darte> "But this isn't a normal Sheikah giving us trials. This is an intruder."
  104. <Dex> What iiiiiif we make the light brighter?
  105. <Kirran> No, the intruder was the one interrupting the trials.
  106. <Kirran> Power of blood, blood spear.
  107. <DM> (my bad, I screwed up something)
  108. <DM> (some reason my copy+pasta screwed up, and it was missing a passive)
  109. <DM> (refresh)
  110. <Kirran> Also, how are we going to make the lights brighter? I've got Raine, but she's a coin toss.
  111. <Shadow> What makes you believe that I am an intruder, Zora?
  112. <Dex> I dunno. I've got a poe lantern and a magic lantern.
  113. <Dex> OR
  114. * Darte rolls his eyes. "Not the time for arguing. I've learned that, if nothing else."
  115. <Shadow> ??h | 7 Lights
  116. <Kirran> True enough.
  117. <Dex> We bust all the lights and then use area of effect attacks!
  118. <Kirran> (Wasn't it at six lights?)
  119. <Dex> Make the shadow be the dark!
  120. <Kirran> (Oh, nevermind, that was before it's second turn...)
  121. <Kirran> Shadow can't exist without light. But if it can spawn lights, how do we stop it from doing so?
  122. <DM> (Red, if you don't say your action within a minute, I'm hitting $endturn)
  123. * Darte pokes Red_Enrics
  124. <Red_Enrics> Oh shi
  125. <Darte> * with a non-damaging poke
  126. <DM> (lol)
  127. * Maliki_lagiban has quit (Quit: Leaving)
  128. <Darte> (30 seconds until http://i.imgur.com/Wi0MPSM.gif )
  129. * Red_Enrics falcon punches the Shadow. (Power)
  130. <Red_Enrics> $23d10
  131. <Tatl> Red_Enrics: You rolled 23 Dice with 10 Sides. Result: 1, 8, 9, 3, 10, 10, 1, 2, 4, 8, 3, 5, 8, 10, 7, 10, 9, 3, 9, 7, 1, 5 and 6. Total: 139. Successes: 19.
  132. <DM> (which person's shadow are you punching?)
  133. <DM> (just curious)
  134. <Red_Enrics> (My Shadow)
  135. <DM> (kay)
  136. <DM> *You punch your own shadow, and your fist meets a floor of concrete pain.*
  137. <DM> *I should probably note that because the Shadow exists from everywhere, it's able to bypass Cover.*
  138. <Red_Enrics> Looks like that attack was,
  139. <Red_Enrics> *sunglasses*
  140. <Red_Enrics> Concrete
  141. <Red_Enrics> YEAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH
  142. <Shadow> A good attempt, but you missed.
  143. <Red_Enrics> 37h 11m | Drunk | Michael Bay | Sunglasses
  144. <Red_Enrics> $endturn
  145. <Tatl> Red_Enrics has ended their turn.
  146. <Tatl> ROUND 1: Shadow (10), Red_Enrics (8), Darte (6), Kirran (5) and Dex (1).
  147. * Darte looks at the ground beneath my feet, then at Red_Enrics' feet.
  148. <Darte> (Red's attack: http://i.imgur.com/Bv1mYHY.gif)
  149. <DM> *Darte, you see your own shadow. Your shadow mimics your movements, as per usual.*
  150. <DM> *And at Red_Enrics's feet is his shadow.*
  151. <Red_Enrics> (The shadows are copying us: http://i.imgur.com/en0g7WE.gif )
  152. * Darte tries to punch Red_Enrics' shadow.
  153. <DM> (fyi, now that I've established the ground is made of concrete...
  154. <DM> (the concrete's successes are... 30. If you come short of 30, you take damage equal to the difference in successes)
  155. <Kirran> So the plan is shadow boxing? Literally.
  156. <Darte> $16d10
  157. <Tatl> Darte: You rolled 16 Dice with 10 Sides. Result: 2, 5, 3, 8, 9, 1, 2, 7, 1, 5, 5, 7, 4, 6, 5 and 9. Total: 79. Successes: 10.
  158. <DM> *Darte, you punch the ground with your arm, only to find the ground has been installed with Newton's 3rd Law of Physics.*
  159. <Kirran> Looks like a job for Dex.
  160. <DM> *Because damage is halved, you take 10 damage - defense*
  161. <Dex> Hup!
  162. <Darte> 7 damage
  163. <Darte> 18h18m | Concretely Mollified.
  164. <Darte> $endturn
  165. <Tatl> Darte has ended their turn.
  166. <Tatl> ROUND 1: Shadow (10), Red_Enrics (8), Darte (6), Kirran (5) and Dex (1).
  167. <Kirran> (What do the lights actually look like?)
  168. <DM> *They look like spotlights. It's a little jarring to look directly into any of them, but they don't completely blind you, unlike the previous trial.*
  169. <Kirran> (So they are physical items generating lights? Or just sort of non-descript beams?)
  170. <DM> *As far as you can tell, there's no mechanism that's causing the lights. They're simply spawning from the walls/ceiling. So yes, non-descript beams.*
  171. <DM> *There is nothing physical causing the beams.*
  172. <DM> *The ones on the walls are about 15 feet above the ground, and the ones on the ceiling are about 30 feet above you.*
  173. <Kirran> (What about the ones on the floor?)
  174. <Dex> THEY ARE HIGH BEAMS
  175. <DM> *There are no lights being caused from the floor. The two shining from the ceiling are shining onto the floor as general illumination, but that's about it.*
  176. <Darte> (we could start a BROADWAY SHOW with all these lights!)
  177. <Kirran> So no brillant ideas other than punching the ground like a bunch of cavemen?
  178. <DM> *You could pull out Raine.*
  179. <DM> *You also have those stupid 10-sided coins.*
  180. <Kirran> Oh dear lord...
  181. <DM> (1 minute till auto-$endturn if action is not declared)
  182. * Kirran lets Raine out, because it's worked so well in the past...
  183. <DM> (kay)
  184. <DM> 1 = darkness; 2 = light
  185. <DM> $1d2
  186. <Tatl> DM: You flipped 1 coin. Values: Heads (1). Results: 1 Head (1) - 0 Tails (2).
  187. <Kirran> Go fly up to the sealing and cover those two lights as best you can Raine.
  188. <Raine> Light or dark...you'll still burn the same...
  189. <DM> *Raine turns to darkness. All light that comes into contact within a 5-foot diameter of Raine is blocked by darkness.*
  190. <DM> *Her aura of darkness is enough to blot out one of the lights, but they're spread out on the ceiling.*
  191. <DM> (oh wait, I did say earlier a light spawned on the ground..... meh, let's just say it doesn't exist anymore, so Shadow is down to 6 Lights... 5 Lights now that Raine is covering one)
  192. <Shadow> ??h | 5 Lights
  193. <Kirran> (Would stomping on the ground damage me?)
  194. <DM> (how hard of a stomp are we talking?
  195. <DM> (if it's a stomp with no roll, no. If it's a stomp with a roll, yes... unless it exceeds 30 successes)
  196. <Kirran> (Not a hard enough one to break my leg.)
  197. <DM> (well, state it as an action)
  198. <Kirran> Well, since our grand plan is to attack the shadows on the ground...
  199. * Kirran stamps on the ground where his shadow is, but not hard enough to trigger a roll.
  200. <DM> *Your foot hits the ground. You feel a slight shock run through your leg as physics kicks in..... god dangit, I didn't intend that.*
  201. <DM> *But you don't take damage.*
  202. <Shadow> ??h | 5 Lights
  203. <Kirran> $endturn.
  204. <Kirran> $endturn
  205. <Tatl> Kirran has ended their turn.
  206. <Tatl> ROUND 1: Shadow (10), Red_Enrics (8), Darte (6), Kirran (5) and Dex (1).
  207. <Dex> Wanna see a trick?
  208. <DM> (I am now afraid)
  209. <Kirran> Uh oh
  210. <Dex> Now you see me.
  211. <Dex> And now you don't
  212. <Dex> Poof!
  213. <Dex> Camouflage
  214. <Dex> $endturn
  215. <Tatl> Dex has ended their turn.
  216. <Tatl> ROUND 2: Shadow (10), Red_Enrics (8), Darte (6), Kirran (5) and Dex (1).
  217. <DM> *Dex, you disappear as the light that hits you instead bends around you. You are no longer causing a shadow.*
  218. <Dex> Can't have shadows if light passes through you.
  219. <DM> *Raine roll!
  220. <DM> $1d2
  221. <Tatl> DM: You flipped 1 coin. Values: Tails (2). Results: 0 Heads (1) - 1 Tail (2).
  222. <Kirran> Well, that works for you anyways.
  223. <Dex> Go stealthy you dork.
  224. <DM> *Raine turns to light. Instead of blocking the light, it amplifies the light. The room illuminates overall, and the shadows appear to be a little lighter, but they still exist.*
  225. <Dex> I thought Sheiks were all about stealth.
  226. <Shadow> Hmm, I suppose I'll just wait this out.
  227. <Shadow> $endturn
  228. <Tatl> Shadow has ended their turn.
  229. <Tatl> ROUND 2: Shadow (10), Red_Enrics (8), Darte (6), Kirran (5) and Dex (1).
  230. <Darte> Sheieiokah
  231. <Kirran> That kind of only helps when shadows aren't the thing trying to attack/fight you.
  232. * Sephiroth has quit (Connection reset by peer)
  233. * Red_Enrics flops onto his Shadow.
  234. * DM face-palms.
  235. <Red_Enrics> (What do I roll?)
  236. <Darte> http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VOl3f_5TouM
  237. <DM> (nothin')
  238. <Red_Enrics> (;~;)
  239. <DM> *You flop onto the ground, attempting to cover your shadow.*
  240. <Red_Enrics> 37h 11m | Drunk | Michael Bay | Sunglasses | Flopped
  241. <DM> *However, one of the lights from the wall shines at you from an angle. Your shadow is small, existing on the other side of you still.*
  242. <Red_Enrics> $endturn
  243. <Tatl> Red_Enrics has ended their turn.
  244. <Tatl> ROUND 2: Shadow (10), Red_Enrics (8), Darte (6), Kirran (5) and Dex (1).
  245. * Red_Enrics gets back up
  246. <DM> (brb 1 minute)
  247. <Red_Enrics> *Flop cured*
  248. <Red_Enrics> *Sunglasses break*
  249. <Red_Enrics> *Sunglasses cured*
  250. <Red_Enrics> *Hasn't exploded in the last turn*
  251. <Red_Enrics> *Michael Bay cured*
  252. <Red_Enrics> *Goes sober*
  253. <Red_Enrics> NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
  254. <Red_Enrics> *Drunk cured*
  255. <DM> (back)
  256. * Darte flips the Ten-Sided Coin.
  257. <Kirran> Oh no...
  258. <Darte> $1d10
  259. <Tatl> Darte: You rolled 1 Die with 10 Sides. Result: 1. Total: 1. Successes: 0.
  260. <DM> (wait wait wait)
  261. <DM> (state your problem)
  262. <Darte> ....
  263. <Darte> "I was trying to solve my shadow..."
  264. <Darte> Now I've got 100 problems
  265. <Shadow> The hell did you just roll?
  266. <Shadow> Is that... a coin? Or a dice?
  267. <DM> (annnd where did you flip the coin?)
  268. <Darte> "Is there an option D? It's option D."
  269. <Kirran> (Perhaps you shoudl consider rerolling Darte.)
  270. <DM> *Your coin sticks to the floor where your shadow is.*
  271. <DM> *Permanently.*
  272. <DM> oh, 1 means it goes missing
  273. * DM rewinds that.
  274. * Darte throws a re-roll
  275. <Darte> $1d10
  276. <Tatl> Darte: You rolled 1 Die with 10 Sides. Result: 10. Total: 10. Successes: 2.
  277. * DM dies laughing.
  278. <Kirran> Well....
  279. <DM> WHELP
  280. <DM> ... flip the coin
  281. <Kirran> That happened.
  282. <Darte> $1d2
  283. <Tatl> Darte: You flipped 1 coin. Values: Tails (2). Results: 0 Heads (1) - 1 Tail (2).
  284. * Darte is now known as Knuckles
  285. * Knuckles is now known as Darte
  286. <DM> *The coin lands with a definitive thump onto the ground. It sticks to the ground, and then the floor plunges into a despair of darkness around you, Darte.*
  287. <DM> *Darte, you find yourself falling... falling and falling... into your own shadow. You continue to fall infinitely, increasing in velocity, until you exceed the capacity for the speed of logic.*
  288. <DM> *You pass out momentarily.*
  289. <DM> *You awaken... and find yourself at the depths of despair. You see Ramsey in a corner, and Fran continuing to explode in another corner.*
  290. * Darte begins to gibber madly.
  291. <DM> *You hear Ramsey curse under his breath... "Curse you Zoidberg!"*
  292. <DM> *Suddenly, Zoidberg appears behind you Darte.*
  293. <DM> *You pass out again.*
  294. <DM> *You finally reappear, one more time... hearing a man rapping "VIDEOGAAAAAMEZ", and now you exist as a hamburger. Welcome to Cuil Land.*
  295. <DM> *The rest of you look for Darte, but he's no longer there with you all.*
  296. <DM> *Darte has died. Congrats on your 10!*
  297. <DM> *Also, your coin is stuck to the concrete floor where you once were.*
  298. <Darte> $removeme
  299. <Tatl> Darte has removed theirself from battle.
  300. <Tatl> ROUND 2: Shadow (10), Red_Enrics (8), Kirran (5) and Dex (1).
  301. <DM> *Your shadow has been solved! And so have you.*
  302. <Kirran> Well, this sucks.
  303. <Shadow> ... would someone like to tell me what just happened?
  304. <Kirran> Dex won, Darte's gone, and I've got no invisibility potion.
  305. <Shadow> I'm pretty sure I didn't cause that.
  306. <Kirran> Hell if I know.
  307. <Dex> Flip your coin fool.
  308. <Shadow> WOOP WOOP WOOP WOOP
  309. <Dex> What's the worst that could happen?
  310. <Red_Enrics> (WHAT THE HELL, MUMBLE.)
  311. <Shadow> ... weird... I felt like I was possessed for a moment.
  312. <DM> *The Essence of Zoidberg goes to haunt Darte's ghost.*
  313. * Darte is now known as Dead_Darte
  314. <Dead_Darte> ;~;
  315. * Fireblast124 has quit (Connection reset by peer)
  316. <Kirran> Um, honestly, I'd drop it except I feel like it would interpret that action as a flip.
  317. <Kirran> I've got bad enough luck without tempting fate. Or Raine.
  318. * Fireblast124 (~ThatOneGu@CPE-65-31-178-8.wi.res.rr.com) has joined #zurpg
  319. * ChanServ gives voice to Fireblast124
  320. <Raine> Tee hee...
  321. <DM> (you know...)
  322. <DM> (you could try to have Raine flip the coin instead of you)
  323. <Dex> DO IT
  324. <Red_Enrics> (THRILLER NIGHT)
  325. <Dex> YOURE A DEAD MAN EITHER WAY
  326. <Kirran> Raine, come sit on my shoulder.
  327. <DM> (just make sure, state the problem before you flip the coin)
  328. <Dex> FLIP THE FRIGGIN COIN AND DEAL WITH IT NERD
  329. <Raine> Sure thing boss.
  330. * Dead_Darte peers into my inventory.
  331. <Dex> RAINE FLIP THE COIN
  332. <Dead_Darte> "...oh. OH."
  333. <Dex> DO IT
  334. * Kirran backs himself to a corner.
  335. * Dead_Darte uncorks a bottle with his phantom hands.
  336. <Red_Enrics> (I am just dying right now due to the voice chat.)
  337. <Dead_Darte> A fairy floats out and farts in Darte's general direction before flitting away.
  338. <Dead_Darte> 3h18m
  339. * Dead_Darte is now known as Darte
  340. <Darte> "....What. Was. That."
  341. <Raine> Lizard man, you flip your own coins.

  759. <Red_Enrics> rejgo0iw4j
  760. <Shadow> Kirran... the reason no one passed this trial....
  761. <Shadow> No one was willing to attack their true shadows.
  762. <Shadow> Themselves.
  763. <Dex> TOTALLY CALLED IT
  764. <Kirran> I'm ashamed to say the thought crossed my mind...
  765. <Kirran> but I overthought it.
  766. <Dex> Also I can't believe you guys lost after I killed myself to bring down Essence of Betrayal
  767. <Shadow> Nonetheless, all of you have passed two trials.
  768. <Kirran> Wait, so you're saying the solution actually was suicide?
  769. <Red_Enrics> How was I suppose to know that Betrayel would blow me up
  770. <Shadow> Yes. Suicide through physical attacks.
  771. <Dex> CAAAALLED IIIIIIT!
  772. <Kirran> Wow...
  773. <Shadow> Impa should be here soon...
  774. <Shadow> She will give you all your reward.
  775. <Shadow> Until then...
  776. <Kirran> I still can't divinve the purpose of the trial.
  777. <Kirran> Why is self-harm the answer?
  778. * Shadow stops speaking. Your shadows fade out for an instant before returning to normal.
  779. <Dex> CRAAAWLING IN MY SKIIIIN

  784. <DM> *You hear a deep, deep voice, coming from directly above you.*
  785. * Shadow is now known as X_X
  786. <Kirran> Would we not have been better served fighting through Link's trial against his shadow self?
  787. <Dex> Impa sure sounds manly now.
  788. <DM> [???]: Hmph. I am not Impa.
  789. <DM> [???]: I... heh heh heh heh...
  790. <Kirran> I do NOT like that laugh.
  791. <DM> [???]: Impa will not be seeing you just yet.
  792. <Dex> You heh heh heh heh?
  793. <Red_Enrics> Igor? I know that laugh
  794. <Dex> This also means that we won't be seeing Impa yet!
  795. <DM> [???]: I am the Essence of Command.

  804. <Red_Enrics> Beer?
  805. <Dex> YOU WILL ADDRESS ME AS SUCH
  806. <Command> That is Rokan's lance, Sheikah, is it not?
  807. <Kirran> It is.
  808. <Command> Excellent. I shall kill its new user too.
  809. <Kirran> Oh shiiii....
  810. <Dex> ESSENCE OF DEX DEMANDS LOOT
