  1. <DM> *Last time on ZURPG! You all descended down into the depths of El Diablo, or well, pretty close to it. You encountered more goopy Interloper blobs called Dark Masses, which seemed weak at first, but they grow in the presence of magic. As you tried to nuke one, you got ambushed by one of the Old Sheikah themselves, some Sheikah man that I didn't describe more than "mysterious robed figured that wasn't actually robed for once". He's
  2. <DM> using the Golden Gauntlets, aka he's One Punch Man. He taunted you as you all went down. There was also some thing with this teal glitter along the way, and ever since then, Impa's been a bit out of control. You party split, dividing into Sheikah and Racists, fought some Reaper Poes on the way, finally got to the bottom, and...
  3. <DM> *... found Garunoff nearing his revival, as he's sucking in the souls of some nearby Sheikah prisoners. And now you're about to get ganked by an actual non-goopy Interloper called Death Sword. Which, I botched his description last time, I'mma fix that this quest.

  61. * Dex goes for a sneaky Eyegouger eye gouge on the weird death guy.

  63. <Dex> Roll your Courage dice vs. targets' Courage dice
  64. <Dex> Neutral Damage: 5
  65. <Dex> EFFECT 1: The force from the magical energy enables you to literally rip out both of the target's eyes.
  66. <Dex> Target loses depth perception, so they lose 3 Attack Dice & Defense Dice.
  67. <Dex> Target also becomes Blinded:
  68. <Dex> When target does any action that does not target themselves, they roll $1d3. If it is a 1, they automatically miss.
  69. <Dex> DURATION: These effects last until the target is healed back to full Hearts, which will regenerate the target's eyes.
  70. <DM> *The rest of you look up and see your old friend Dex spontaneously appearing out of seemingly nowhere and jumping up to rip out the Great Interloper's eyes. He succeeds, getting point blank as Impa enchants Dex's eyegouger with the power of flames at the last moment, giving him a powerful boost, as he rips out its ghostly eyes!
  71. <Dex> EFFECT 2: Additionally, the eyes are added to your War Necklace.
  72. <Dex> $1d10
  73. <Navi> Dex: You rolled 1 Die with 10 Sides. Result: 5. Successes: 1.

  77. * Darte is now suspicious that Dex has been down here instigating the entire adventure all along
  78. <DM> [Impa]: Dex, where did you come from?!
  79. <Kirran> I stopped asking that a long time ago boss.
  80. <DM> [Death Sword]: GAAAAAHHHHHHH! MY EYES!
  81. <Dex> 15h 9mp |impa buff 3wc
  82. * Hal just does not question Dex
  83. <Dex> I CAME FROM A LAND DOWN UNDER
  84. <Kirran> Don't suppose you brought along your merc army Dex?
  85. <DM> *The Old Sheikah leader speaks up.
  86. <Dex> I brought along an asswhuppin for this chump!
  87. <DM> [Uroh]: Death Sword, I thought you said you're bringing allies specifically from the Twilight Realm, where only your associates are from! How did this mongrel lizard get in?!
  88. <DM> *Okay, and now to nutshell the battle and the situation.
  89. <DM> *Your merry band of 5 is up against:
  90. <DM> *Death Sword - that 'Great' Interloper who just got surprise eyegouge'd by Dex
  91. <DM> *Uroh - leader of the Old Sheikah, with the One-Punch Man style Golden Gauntlets. He's also got a weird mirror fragment on his head, covering where the Eye of Truth symbol should be.
  92. <Kirran> (Aka: Suuuuper Slaaaam)
  93. <DM> *Namuk - the other Old Sheikah. He's hiding behind all the Dark Masses.
  94. <Dex> HMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM
  95. <DM> *Dark Masses - there's 5 of these, and as you well know, while they start weak, every time you cast magic (including Dex's Eyegouge he just used), they will grow in strength.
  96. <DM> *Garunoff - that large spirit in the middle of the coliseum area you're fighting in. He's supposedly close to revival, and you can see the energies of some nearby Sheikah prisoners being sucked into him.
  97. <DM> *Oh, and let's not forget - take too long, and there's a chance Bloodwind could crash the party.
  98. <Kirran> (Start the Bloodwind timer)
  99. <DM> *Impa tosses Rokan's Lance back to Kirran.
  100. <Darte> (ZA WARUDO style)
  101. * Kirran catches it.
  102. <DM> *She pulls out her naginata again.
  103. <Kirran> Hope that helped boss.
  104. <DM> [Impa]: It did for the time being. Let's take them down!
  105. <Hal> Alright
  106. <DM> *Okay, so everyone roll your initiatives, but just use 1d#, I'm running this as round-based, not turn-based. I'm just checking for bonus turns.

  130. <DM> [Death Sword]: Lizard! You will PAY for that! ........ where he go.
  131. * Kirran slips away from the battle momentarily.
  132. <DM> [Uroh]: Death Sword, return to the Twilight Realm for now, heal your eyes and return.

  134. * Kirran uses the Poe Whistle in an area removed from the immediate danger.

  136. * Hal readies his wand, holding it out while keeping his shield out
  137. <DM> [Uroh]: Playing music to ease your despair? Namuk, cast some spells so Dark Mass can launch an attack.
  138. <DM> *The other Sheikah silently casts Steel Shadows and Shadow Speed on Uroh, giving him +5 Power and Courage. More magic for the Dark Masses!
  139. <Hal> Anyone want to join me in this magic attack?
  140. <DM> *Meanwhile, Kirran finishes his tune, and suddenly, in the corner of the coliseum, Shady and his shop appear in a puff of smoke!
  141. <DM> [Shady]: HELLO LITTLE CHILDREN AND WELCOME TO MY........ ...........
  142. <DM> *He looks around and sees the screwed situation.
  143. <Kirran> You might want to keep it down a little bit
  144. <DM> [Shady]: Oh what f- DIDN'T I TELL YOU FOLKS NOT TO SUMMON ME DIRECTLY INTO A BATTLE?!
  145. <DM> *Too late.
  146. * Kirran facepalms
  147. <DM> *As Dark Masses grow in strength, Uroh looks in your direction and sees Shady and his shop.
  148. <DM> [Uroh]: Really? You brought that sad excuse of a Poe in here?
  149. <Kirran> Shady, I need a favor, and I need it quick.
  150. <DM> [Shady]: You got 5 seconds before I wrap up shop, throw it at that guy and teleport out.
  151. <Kirran> I need to get Dex's merc army here, because the fate of Hyrule depends on it. Can you open a portal there and move them here?
  152. <DM> Dark Masses: ??h, 21m thus far
  153. <DM> [Shady]: Kid, they're bandits. You folks are gonna need to put in a LOT of money for that to work.

  444. <DM> *Okay, while you all gawk at Dex suddenly gaining uber shadows and turning into a miniature Interloper, Darte literally runs straight up to the Dark Mass, trips on a rock, strikes, and misses with all three strikes. It then counterattacks by reaching its goopy arms out at you.

  451. <DM> *Yeah, Dark Mass just sucks the life outta your body as you crumple to the ground. The dark slash mark from before activates, and a part of your soul is seen visibly darting over to Garunoff's spirit, re-empowering him.

  685. <DM> [Doc Luggins]: Already on it! ....... how do I write?
  686. <DM> [Death Sword]: ..... so be it.
  687. <Dex> Just remember it then.
  688. <Dex> ALSO SORRY UROH I CANT HEAR YOU OVER THIS MIRROR THING I STOLE FROM YOU
  689. <DM> *Suddenly, Dark Mass disappears momentarily, then wraps around Namuk, suffocating him.
  690. <Dex> COULD YOU SPEEK A LITTLE LOUDER
  691. <DM> [Uroh]: WHAT?!
  692. <DM> *Death Sword slices through the Dark Mass again, slicing through Namuk and sending HIS soul into Garunoff.
  693. <Kirran> (Can I reflect THAT?)
  694. <DM> [Death Sword]: He was already on the brink of death. Sacrifices must be made for the greater good, Uroh.
  695. * Dex hangs the mirror shard on his war necklace.
  696. <DM> *Excellent, you've adorned the mirror shard.
  697. <DM> *Uroh noticeably shakes his gauntlets for a bit, but just then...
  698. <DM> *A powerful spiritual shockwave explodes outwards from Garunoff's spirit. It holds you all in place.
  699. <DM> [Raine]: *back from silence* Oh hoh hoh hoh, that Garunoff fellow may not be my master, but with THAT power, he's something close to it!
  700. <DM> *Dex, you find yourself shielded from the shockwave, thanks to that awesome mirror fragment.
  701. <FreshFish> "What, you think Kirran here's lost his edge?"
  702. <FreshFish> "He still shops at Hot Topic!"
  703. <DM> [Raine]: Oh no, I don't mean that, I was referring to THE master!
  704. <DM> *She cackles a bit from within the bottle, then goes back to eating cheesecake.
  705. <DM> *Garunoff's body fully materializes finally. He's.... actually about the same size as you all now, despite his spirit supposedly being huge.
  706. <Hal> (What did I miss?)
  707. <DM> *The old Gerudo king returns.
  708. <DM> (You were frozen but somehow magically revived Darte)
  709. <Dex> i drank pure elemental light and dark
  710. <DM> *Shenanigans happened.
  711. <Dex> then i stole the mirror thing from the boss
  712. <Dex> then i died
  713. <DM> [Garunoff]: Ah finally, I have... returned.
  714. <Hal> (Stats on everyone?)
  715. <Kirran> Dammit
  716. * Kirran is enraged.
  717. <DM> *He holds both of his hands out. Two massive wide claymores appear from both hands. See these - http://imgur.com/vH7PorU
  718. <Hal> (So the blobs are dead?)
  719. <DM> (Dark Mass is at 100 health, but no magic left)
  720. <DM> $endturn
  721. <Hal> (I would like stats)
  722. <Navi> Round 3: Roundy and Round
  723. <DM> $endturn
  724. <Navi> Round 3 Over!
  725. <Navi> Round 4: Roundy and Round
  726. <DM> Dark Mass: 100h, 0m
  727. * Hal is back in action, back from whatever power held him frozen.
  728. <DM> Uroh: 21h, low magic
  729. * Dex drinks a red potion and then uses camo.
  730. <Hal> (And so Dex took Uroh's mirror?)
  731. <DM> (yep)
  732. <DM> Death Sword: ???h, ???m || His shadow seems to be smaller than earlier though...
  733. <DM> Grunts: Kinda wounded, 2 dead, half of them still eating bait.
  734. <DM> Garunoff: Finally revived, courtesies to sacrificing Namuk
  735. <Hal> 14h 17m | +9 Courage | +5 Attack Dice with Wand | Dark Curse?
  736. <DM> *Yep, Dark Curse is still on you.
  737. <DM> *It is not on Darte though, since he died....... twice.
  738. <Hal> (Did people find out its effect?)
  739. <DM> (It yoinked their souls to Garunoff, bringing him closer to revival. Namuk's soul sealed the deal.)
  740. <DM> [Impa]: I'm almost glad he's out of spirit form and we can hit him now.
  741. <Hal> (So Darte lost his soul?)
  742. <Kirran> (Did I at least save the Sheikah?)
  743. <DM> (Darte is back)
  744. <DM> (Nope, Namuk went bye bye, he had only 1 hearth left anyways)
  745. <Kirran> (I was referring to the prisoners.)
  746. <DM> *The Sheikah prisoners are off to the side, almost dead, but still just barely alive. They seem rather deprived though. It's unlikely any healing abilities would bring them back immediately.
  747. <DM> [Death Sword]: I've been here too long. Now that Garunoff is fully revived, I can bring the Reapers back. I shall return when my power is restored. Serve your master well, Uroh, and your dream shall be realized.
  748. <DM> *He begins to dissolve into his own shadow.

  759. <DM> [Death Sword]: And you were doing so well. Well, I'll be back sooner than I thought.
  760. <DM> *He...... does not defend.
  761. * Dex goes right for Death Swords stupid FACE.
  762. <DM> *Your cursed sword attack lands directly on Death Sword's face, seemingly cutting him in half, only for the darkness from the dark curse cut to transfer to his shadow, enlarging it back to partially how it was.
  763. <DM> *He laughs as he disappears
  764. <DM> [Death Sword]: Thanks to you, I shall return sooner!
  765. <DM> *He vanishes.

  771. <DM> -=LOADING SCREEN=-
  772. <DM> -=SESSION END=-
