  1. <DM> *LAST TIME ON ZERPYGEE! You entered the Twilight Realm, got pwned by an Interloper, then Twili, then chucked in prison, lost your artifacts, chatted with a Light Spirit, and Dex broke physics to get a magic shield.
  2. <DM> *Oh, and Gossip Stone senpai is totally not Bloodwind-sama.
  3. <DM> -=SESSION START=-
  4. <Kirran> I'm SAAILLLING AWAYYY
  5. <DM> *After a Loading Screen enveloped you all in darkness, the elevator found a way to scramble the party, and you all notice that when the darkness disperses, your Gerudo friend Corsava is no longer with you.
  6. <DM> *The elevator halts, and its doors open into a hallway. Gossip Stone pops up out of the ground to greet you.
  7. <DM> [Gossip Stone]: Oh, there's the rest of the party.
  8. <DM> [Gossip Stone]: What'd you all do, eat a hole through the elevator or something?
  9. <Hal> How did Corsava get ahead of us?
  10. <Kirran> Oh. Huh. I thought I was falling.
  11. <Kirran> Weird
  12. <DM> [Gossip Stone]: I have no idea. If anything, I'm wondering how you got behind.
  13. <DM> *You guys happen to notice some odd scorch marks right outside the elevator door.
  14. * Darte is still dangling underneath the elevator.
  15. * DM teleports Darte into the elevator.
  16. * Hal looked at the elevator door, attempting to analyze what caused these scorch marks
  17. <DM> *Sorry Darte, world was still rendering.
  18. <DM> *Raine appears to still be unconscious. You do hear a bit of grumbling from her as she mutters in her dreams, buuuuuut she's still knocked out.
  19. <DM> [Gossip Stone]: I assume you all are trying to get out of the prison area, yes?
  20. * Hal briefly turned to the Gossip Stone for a second
  21. <Hal> Yes
  22. <Kirran> That's the idea. Wouldn't mind getting our stuff back along the way either.
  23. * Hal returns to analyzing the scorch marks
  24. <DM> [Gossip Stone]: To do so, you'll need a nice green stone thingy from the end of this hallway. That will re-activate the elevator. ... though... there may be a slight problem.
  25. <DM> [Gossip Stone]: Your friend already went through here, and to my knowledge... she may have been... noticed. The Guards may be a bit more... alert, than they should be.
  26. <DM> [Gossip Stone]: But hey, she solo'd it; surely you lot can overcome that!
  27. * Hal turned to the Gossip Stone
  28. <Dex> Great she made this harder than it has to be.
  29. <Hal> From the sounds of things, it appears Corsava may have caused these scorch marks.
  30. <Dex> If we catch up to her I say we kill her.
  31. <DM> [Gossip Stone]: Nonsense! Besides, I'm giving you some freebies.
  32. * Hal earperks
  33. <DM> *The mysterious symbol on Gossip Stone transforms into a menu.
  34. <DM> *On it, you see the following items. Note there is only one of each:
  35. <Kirran> I'll have a hamburger please.
  36. <DM> https://zurpg.sephiroth.ws/thread-1149-post-2684.html#pid2684 --> Consumables --> Any of the scrolls
  37. * Hal yoinks the Fire Scroll!
  38. * Kirran takes the water scroll for lack of a better option.
  39. <Dex> I'm not taking anything. I don't trust strange stones.
  40. * Darte scoops the Nature scroll; why not?
  41. <Hal> Due to our diverse... spread of races, I doubt the Fire scroll will be useful here. And I already have the rest of the illusion spells.
  42. <DM> *There is still a Shadow scroll left...... I guess whoever doesn't have Shadow can take it. Darte, want another affinity?
  43. <DM> [Gossip Stone]: You'll probably need to use a combination of illusion spells to get down this hallway. Also, I might recommend hiding behind me or in the elevator in the next two seconds.
  44. <DM> *Just then, down the hall, a Twili Guard rounds the bend.
  45. * Hal dives behind the Gossip Stone
  46. * Kirran ducks back into the elevator
  47. * Dex just Camos.
  48. <DM> [Gossip Stone]: You may be able to take them individually, but if a single one gets a portal off, reinforcements will flood this area and you'll be overwhelmed.
  49. <DM> *Dex, you successfully camo! Twili does not seem to notice you.
  50. <DM> *Darte technically never left the elevator, so he's safe.
  51. <DM> *The Twili goes a bit down the hallway in your direction, stops and looks around, then turns the other way and starts walking back.
  52. * Darte whistles safe and sound.
  53. <DM> *You see at the end of the hallway, there's a turn to the left.
  54. <DM> *Twili suddenly stops. A ? appears over its head.
  55. <DM> *It turns back towards your direction and looks around.
  56. * Kirran fights the urge to punch Darte in the arm.
  57. * Darte wishes they'd stayed under the elevator.
  58. <DM> *The Twili stops, mutters something incomprehensible, and turns back around.
  59. * Darte takes that as inspiration and attempts to hookshot up the elevator shaft.
  60. <DM> *Your hookshot bounces off the ceiling. Thankfully for you, that didn't make much of a sound.
  61. * Hal remembers that sound the Twili makes
  62. <Darte> 'HUTINI'
  63. <Darte> (This is not something Darte said. Oops.)
  64. <DM> Twili || Jawas
  65. <DM> PRO SIRE
  66. <Kirran> (Did we get a map of this area?)
  67. <DM> [Gossip Stone]: ... seriously, you folks still haven't moved? I may not be able to see you all, but I can still sense your presence.
  68. <DM> *Twili is still walking towards the end of the hall, away from you all.
  69. * Kirran heads forward to scout the area extremely quietly.
  70. * Hal spends 1 magic to don the Illusion of Invisibility
  71. <DM> *You scoot forward quietly. You are unnoticed.
  72. <DM> Map - https://docs.google.com/drawings/d/1xLMkLaJKnJ9ho3FH4eW86XiA8LO7NRndE2Hd6NPQD4E/edit?usp=sharing
  73. * Hal follows Kirran, standing a fair distance away from him.
  74. <DM> *Twili gets to the end of the hallway and seems to meet with another Twili. They start chatting, once again in some language you can't understand.
  75. <DM> *Kirran, you're..... you've got that cape, so you are in camou, aren't you.
  76. <Kirran> (Do I have the cape? I thought they took it.)
  77. <DM> (cape isn't an artifact)
  78. <Hal> (Only artifacts were taken)
  79. <Kirran> (Oh right.)
  80. <Kirran> (Then yes, yes I do)
  81. <DM> *Kay, Kirran and Hal, you're sneaking up and invisible. They do not notice you. There is enough room to sidle by them.
  82. * Kirran crouches and scoots along the wall for maximum stealth.
  83. * Hal does the same, crouching and scooting along the wall for maximum stealth.
  84. <DM> *Kirran, you sneak past them, and rounding the corner, the next hallway ahead (the vertical one on the map going north) is entirely covered in a bright light from above.
  85. * Dex lobs a sleep gas grenade at the guards.
  86. <DM> *You launch a sleep gas grenade! ...... it would appear to be invisible, and it appears to not do anything. Weird.
  87. <DM> *Dex uses his powerful imagination to solve the puzzles! ...... it's not very effective.
  88. * Kirran whispers to Hal. "That's going to create a shadow from above on the floor."
  89. <DM> *The Twili stop chatting, and return on their patrol routes. One of them starts heading back down the initial hallway, and the other heads north down the second hallway.
  90. * Hal whispers back "We gotta set it up without them noticing first"
  91. * Kirran casts illusion of invisibilty on himself to help mitigate that problem.
  92. * Dex shoots out the light with his silenced pistol.
  93. <Kirran> "I have no idea how we're going to get Darte through here."
  94. <DM> *Dex appears to be sleeping on the floor, playing with his mind. In camou.
  95. <Kirran> "Or Dex for that matter."
  96. <DM> *Kirran, you invisibility yourself on top of camouflage.
  97. <DM> [Gossip Stone]: ... I sense two of you. You know you can distract the Twili with illusion spells right? And sneak right past them?
  98. <Darte> 18h0m | 2 Charges | Sucked Dry
  99. * Darte is still unable to hold magic, if he's not mistaken.
  100. <DM> *Darte, you broke the abyss chains. You've got magic.
  101. * Hal whispers "That light looks suspect. I would not put it past them to create something that messes with invisibility. You'd think they have had enough prisoners to put something like that up."
  102. * Kirran tests stepping into the light to see if he's casting a shadow.
  103. <Darte> (Think that was from the fight before, but okie)
  104. <DM> *You don't cast a shadow, but you do notice the light bending around your invisibility, creating a bright sillouette.
  105. <DM> *Silhouette
  106. <DM> *YAY I CAN SPELL
  107. <Kirran> "Well, that won't do."
  108. <DM> [Gossip Stone]: The other didn't require nearly as much maintenance. My, why did I ever decide to put my trust in you hooligans...
  109. <Dex> #zurpgteam
  110. <DM> '/join #zurpgteam
  111. * Hal looked that the silhouette cast over Kirran's hand. Whispiring to Kirran "Looks like we have to distract them somehow"
  112. * Hal looks around to see if there are any sources of light
  113. <DM> *There's general lighting seeping in from the walls in the initial hallway. The second hallway, the bright lightsource seems to be coming from several floating light orbs above, about 20 feet up.
  114. <DM> *There's also light emanating from light masks that the Twili Guards are wearing, though it's only just around them.
  115. * Kirran cancels the spell and tries the same thing again with just the cape.
  116. * Dex looks at the orbs.
  117. <DM> *So just standard camou, no invis spell on top of it?
  118. <DM> *Same result, Kirran. Seems camou won't get you through the light hallway either.
  119. <Kirran> (Well, magic camo, but I suppose so)
  120. * Dex looks really hard at the orbs.
  121. <DM> *Dex, you're starting to go a bit blind.
  122. <DM> *They seem to be floating glowing orbs of light. You're not sure whether they're something you can touch or not.
  123. * Darte wonders if he can attach an Illusion of Apathy onto the guard's clothing as he comes near the elevator.
  124. <Kirran> What's at the other end of the hallway, or can we not see that?
  125. <DM> *On the other end of the hallway, you see a door to the north, and a turn to the left.
  126. <DM> *Both Twili stop in their patrols. They're about to turn around.
  127. * Kirran casts illusion of sound on the door.
  128. <DM> *What sound do you want it to make?
  129. <Kirran> (Knocking)
  130. <Kirran> (Lightly knocking)
  131. <DM> *The Twili to the north of you stops, you see a ? appear over its head, and it goes to inspect the door.
  132. <DM> *The door opens, and you see said Twili go inside. The door closes.
  133. * Kirran quickly makes his way across the hall
  134. * Hal follows Kirran
  135. * Dex follows them.
  136. <DM> *You three quickly go across the hallway! ..... behind you, you hear the first Twili mutter something. It enters the second hallway and starts heading north.
  137. <DM> *Darte, the first guard is out of the initial hallway!
  138. * Kirran heads around the corner and out of the light as quickly as possible.
  139. * Hal does the same, remaining out of the light.
  140. <DM> *You folks managed to get past the light section. Though, it would seem that in trying to be fast... you're not being all that quiet.
  141. * Darte unleashes an Illusion of Sound in the elevator, a raging roar.
  142. <DM> *The first Twili goes back to the initial hallway.
  143. <DM> *On the flipside, you guys round the corner, only to see a third Twili looking in your direction, with a ? over its head. It slowly approaches you all.
  144. <DM> *At the end of the third hallway, you see a terminal/pedestal thing with a green stone sitting on top of it.
  145. * Kirran presses against the wall and quiets down
  146. <DM> *From the nearby door, it opens, and the second Twili walks out. He seems to hail the third Twili, and they start chatting in their language.
  147. * Hal presses against the wall as well, casting an Illusion of Sound on the gem; a scraping.
  148. <DM> *Both of them have ? appear over their heads. They chat for a bit, then the Third Twili moves back towards the gem. The Second Twili stands right in front of the door to the north.
  149. <DM> *Note, there is no bright light source in the third hallway, just the normal lighting.
  150. <DM> *Darte, you hear footsteps approaching the elevator, and the doors are still open.
  151. * Darte tucks against the elevator wall to remain out of sight until the Twili has entered the elevator. He prepares to tether an Illusion of Feeling (exhaustion) onto the elevator.
  152. <DM> ..... wait what
  153. <DM> .........
  154. <DM> are you
  155. <DM> .......
  156. <DM> are you making the elevator feel tired?
  157. <Kirran> (Must be getting tired...)
  158. <Darte> "Tether to Object:
  159. <Darte> EFFECT: Anyone who touches the object this illusion is tethered to gets a feeling that this illusion gives."
  160. <DM> .....
  161. <Darte> The Lullabator
  162. <DM> *The elevator starts to screech as it begins to sweat and feel tired. It starts to sink downwards a bit.
  163. <DM> *You hear the Twili mumble something, then the footsteps start heading the other way.
  164. <DM> *Darte, you yourself are starting to feel a tad bit tired...
  165. <Darte> (Trying to tether it _to_ the elevator so it affects anyone who touches it)
  166. <DM> (PRO SIRE)
  167. <DM> (ahhhh)
  168. <Darte> (If that makes the elevator sleepy, I am concern)
  169. <DM> (uhhhhhh WHELP TOO LATE)
  170. <Darte> (SLEEPVATOR IT IS)
  171. <DM> *You no longer hear the footsteps. Good for you Darte, you.......... ...............
  172. <DM> ......
  173. <DM> *NO COMMENT
  174. * Darte attempts to crawl out of the elevator before it falls too far.
  175. <Darte> (This is how you get cut in half, kids)
  176. <DM> *You get out of the elevator, and you see the Twili guard walking away from you towards the other end of the hallway.
  177. * Dex casts Illusion of Creation. Tethering the ability to make 3D objects in the area.
  178. * Dex creates an Illusion that matches up with the background. We worded it right in the voice chat.
  179. <DM> *You.... create a walled image of the background, such that if the third Twili walks back in your direction, it'll look like a corner with nothing there.
  180. * Kirran casts illusion of sound further up the light hallway of light footsteps.
  181. <DM> *The second Twili moves from the door and investigates.
  182. <DM> *The third Twili halts in his patrol and starts to turn back, heading towards you guys at the intersection.
  183. * Kirran quickly casts illusion of creation to create an illusion of the door as it is closed before quietly sneaking through the actual door.
  184. <DM> *You go through the door, and thankfully for you, the door's opening and closing is almost silent.
  185. * Hal quickly moves through the door
  186. <Hal> *slowly moves through the door
  187. <DM> *Hal and Kirran, you head in, annnd you find a room with two step switches in it. Each step switch has the Eye of Truth symbol on it. Nearby, there's a sign.
  188. <Kirran> 0_o
  189. * Dex sidles by the 3rd guard and goes for the key.
  190. <DM> *It reads: Shee Rao
  191. * Hal examines the signs
  192. <DM> *One of the Eye of Truth marks appears to be dark.
  193. * Dex swipes the key. Leaving behind the illusion of a key.
  194. * Hal applies a Trace to the Dark switch
  195. <DM> *Dex, you sneak by perfectly fine. You grab the key, and immediately upon grabbing it, you become light-headed and pass out for a moment. You re-awaken, cast the spell that makes it look like the key was never taken, annnnd you notice something else...
  196. <DM> *You hear a voice coming from the intersection....
  197. <DM> [Voice]: Weird, why does the hallway look like the intersection....
  198. <Hal> EFFECT: Place a Trace on an object that has a trigger mechanism.
  199. <Hal> So long as the Trace is on the target, you are able to see a route from the object to the location of the trigger mechanism.
  200. <Hal> For example, you could place a Trace on a locked door to find the key for the door.
  201. <Hal> If there are multiple trigger mechanisms/ objects that the trigger mechanism can trigger, the route to the closest one is shown.
  202. <Hal> You can only have one Trace active at a time. If you place another Trace, the first one disappears.
  203. <Hal> Trace lasts until the mechanism is triggered or destroyed.
  204. <DM> *You see the voice coming from the Third Twili. It seems to be walking back and forth through the illusion you created at the intersection.
  205. <DM> (I know, hang on)
  206. <DM> *The illusion disperses, and the Third Twili just returns to its patrol.
  207. <DM> [Twili3]: I'm getting reeeeeaaaal tired of this invisibility shtick...
  208. <Kirran> (are they pretending to not see us?)
  209. <DM> *Hal, you see lines connecting the two step switches, and both of them converging to one and leading to..... a space on the floor. Seems to be nothing there.
  210. * Dex sneaks back to the door and waits to see if its safe to open it.
  211. <DM> [Twili3]: If I hear one more questionable sound, I think I'm just gonna shoot some Sol Blasts down these hallways...
  212. * Hal observes the step switches
  213. <DM> *The door appears safe to open. The closed door illusion is still in front of it.
  214. <DM> *One step switch has an Eye of Truth on it. The other has a Dark Eye of Truth on it.
  215. * Kirran whispers "Why do they have the eye of truth at all around here?"
  216. <Kirran> "This is unsettling."
  217. * Hal whispers to Kirran "I don't trust these switches, they will probably make a sound"
  218. <DM> *The switches stare blankly at you.
  219. * Dex joins the other 2 in the room then.
  220. * Kirran shrugs.
  221. <Kirran> "Not going to lie, kinda curious here."
  222. <DM> *Dex, you see... what I just described. The door closes behind you.
  223. * Darte follows the first guard closer to the light hallway as sneakily as he's able, trying to get close enough to cast an Illusion of Sound (harsh metallic screeching) tethered to one of the hallway's lights.
  224. * Dex touches the converging spot.
  225. <DM> *Twili1 has a ? appear over its head, and looks at the lights. It starts chatting with Twili2, though you can't understand what they're saying, Darte.
  226. <DM> *Dex, you touch it, annnnnd nothing happens.
  227. * Hal steps on the switch as soon as he could start hearing the metallic screeching
  228. <Hal> *the light switch
  229. * Kirran readies himself to step on the other switch if anything weird happens.
  230. <DM> *Hal, you guys actually don't hear anything in there.
  231. * Darte casts similar illusions on the rest of the light fixtures he can reach.
  232. * Hal opens the door briefly to hear the harsh metallic screeching
  233. <DM> *As in, the screeching sounds don't make their ways into- nvm, you hear 'em now, along with a brief note of dialogue, that only Dex can understand.
  234. * Hal goes over to the light switch.
  235. <DM> [Twili2]: Nah, this ain't natural. You know what, these walls are sturdy enough, we can-
  236. <DM> *Door closed.
  237. <DM> *Hal, you step on the Light Switch, annnnd it presses down!
  238. <Darte> (Heavy boy)
  239. <Dex> They are definately going to start shooting down the hallways at noises now.
  240. <DM> *Darte, Twili1 and 2 end their conversation, then move to the lower intersection. Darte, you're..... right around the corner.
  241. <Dex> Oh, I can also understand their dumb language. For some reason.
  242. * Dex reads the sign.
  243. <DM> *Steps of Light and Darkness
  244. <DM> *That's what the sign seems to read for you.
  245. <Dex> It says steps of light and darkness.
  246. * Hal casts an Illusion of Invisibility on Dex
  247. <Hal> *'s gem
  248. <Kirran> (Wow, the most helpful sign in the game.)
  249. <Dex> Although steps of light and dark would scan better.
  250. * Darte decides to Hide by tucking against the corner
  251. <Dex> Or steps of lightness and darkness. But that's kind of clunky.
  252. <DM> *Twili1 reaches the lower intersection, annnnnnd looks directly at the fishy guy that's trying to hide in the corner. Twili2 joins.
  253. * Kirran steps on the dark switch
  254. <DM> *Kirran, you step on the dark switch...... but it doesn't press down.
  255. * Hal steps off the Light switch
  256. * Darte wishes he had the mural abilities from A Link Between Worlds, here.
  257. <DM> *The light switch unsets.
  258. <Darte> (Trying to flatten against the 'northern' wall of this hallway, FYI)
  259. <Darte> xD
  260. <DM> *Yeah, they still turn the corner and see you.
  261. * Kirran jumps lightly on the dark switch.
  262. <DM> *The Twili try to speak to you, buuuut then realize you can't understand them. One of them charges a light blast, but doesn't fire it.
  263. <DM> *The other taps its neck several times until you hear something.... you can understand?
  264. <DM> [Twili2]: Y-.... y-...... greoagjre
  265. <DM> [Twili2]: You're not supposed to be here! How'd you get outta the prison?
  266. <Kirran> (It's Twili Baegba?)
  267. <DM> *Kirran, that does absolutely nothing.
  268. <DM> *Both switches are not being pressed down.
  269. * Darte blinks, figuring this is at least a step up from being shot on sight. "Uhhmm. I was sent to... pick up... dinner... for the rest of the prisoners..."
  270. <DM> *Well, no one is actually currently stepping on either for one...
  271. * Kirran steps on the light switch.
  272. <DM> [Twili2]: ......
  273. * Dex steps on the dark switch.
  274. * Darte waves idly towards the elevator. "There was, a, uhm. Lizard running through, turning barriers into shields and makin' all sorts of mess."
  275. <DM> *Kirran, the light switch steps down.
  276. <DM> *Dex, the dark switch..... doesn't budge.
  277. * Hal steps onto the Dark switch and plays the Elegy of Emptiness quietly on his Ocarina
  278. <DM> [Twili2]: Whatcha think, mate?
  279. <DM> [Twili1]: *after tapping its neck* ......
  280. * Dex makes a shadow over the switch while stepping on it.
  281. <Hal> $24d10
  282. <Navi> Hal: You rolled 24 Dice with 10 Sides. Results: 3, 4, 10, 5, 5, 6, 4, 10, 2, 9, 9, 7, 8, 7, 3, 1, 10, 7, 8, 8, 7, 7, 4 and 5. Total: 149. Successes: 20.
  283. <DM> *Twili just outright shoots a blast of light at you, Darte. Roll Wisdom to defend!
  284. * Darte tries to cast an Illusion of Feeling (agreeableness.)
  285. <Darte> Welp, too late
  286. <Hal> EFFECT: When played, a veil of Magic surrounds you and produces a creepy empty (but weighted) shell of yourself that automatically covers you from attacks. This does not require channeling.
  287. <Hal> Roll your current Hearts. The result of that roll will be the shell's Hearts * 2.
  288. <Hal> The shell can not defend itself and will continue covering you until it hits 0 Hearts, whereupon it breaks.
  289. <Hal> This song can be played again to absorb the shell, causing you to recover Hearts equal to the shell's remaining Hearts.
  290. <Hal> Elegy of Emptiness’ standard Heart cost does not apply for this. here.
  291. * Hal climbs onto the shell he just created
  292. <Darte> $29d10
  293. <Navi> Darte: You rolled 29 Dice with 10 Sides. Results: 10, 3, 9, 8, 4, 7, 9, 6, 10, 8, 1, 5, 4, 5, 4, 6, 3, 3, 2, 1, 10, 4, 1, 10, 10, 9, 8, 7 and 6. Total: 173. Successes: 23.
  294. <DM> *Yyyyep, Hal and Dex, neither of you are able to press the step down.

  298. * Hal notices that the switch did not budge
  299. * Darte 's totes dead.
  300. * Kirran lights his magic candle and sets it down on the switch before moving back onto the light switch.
  301. <Hal> Despite the weight applied to it.
  302. <DM> *The blasts hit both Darte and the wall behind him. The hallway rumbles a bit. Kirran, Dex, and Hal, you all feel a slight shake for some reason.
  303. <DM> *Kirran, the magic candle also does nothing.
  304. <DM> [Raine]: *yawns*
  305. <Kirran> "Anyone suddenly feel like we're missing someone?"
  306. * Kirran recollects his candle.
  307. <Hal> Oh-oh. Darte is in trouble.
  308. <DM> [Raine]: grleifgrea wha did- what..... where's me cakey?
  309. <DM> *Raine appears to have woken up!
  310. <Dex> Probably the fish.
  311. <DM> *Darte, I don't think that kills you, but you definitely took a hit.
  312. <Kirran> "Hey Raine, does Shee Rao mean anything to you?"
  313. <DM> [Raine]: Wee wao?
  314. * Hal plays the Elegy of Emptiness to absorb his shell and reapplies his Illusion of Invisibility
  315. <Darte> 10h??m
  316. <DM> [Raine]: Hmm... nope!
  317. <Dex> Should we look out the door?
  318. <DM> [Raine]: Though it does sound a bit Sheikah... wait, where are we?
  319. * Darte tries a _proper_ Illusion of Feeling to make it feel as if water is gushing down from above, then tries to book it back to the elevator shaft.
  320. * Kirran uses eye of truth on the dark eye of truth symbol for the hell of it.
  321. <Hal> Anyone got PSI Strike?
  322. * Kirran O_o
  323. <Hal> As long as we are in here, nobody can hear us.
  324. <DM> *Kirran, you.... hear a scattering of whispers for a moment, but you couldn't understand them. It sounded something like the Twili chatter.
  325. * Kirran tries it on the light symbol as well.
  326. <Hal> So what if we needed a Light and a Dark spell to flatten the switches
  327. * Kirran o_O
  328. <DM> [Raine]: Switches? What switches? The heck are you guys doing? Where even is this?
  329. <DM> *Darte, both the Twili quickly wipe themselves off, though the other Twili that didn't shoot you is now prepping a light blast. Roll Courage to dive the heck into the elevator!

  338. <DM> *Darte, your legs kindly get seared as you dive into the elevator.
  339. <Hal> We want to do this quick. If they found Darte, chances are they are going to look for us too.
  340. <Darte> 5h??m
  341. <DM> [Raine]: .... that means nothing you dolt, th-. ..... wait...... why is a Sheikah name showing up in the Twilight Realm? Did I inhale that cherry bloodbath I was dreaming about and am now higher than Dex's shenanigans?
  342. * Dex casts Veil of Shadows on the dark switch.
  343. * Kirran is still eye of truthing the heck out of the other switch.
  344. * Dex shares in Kirran's eye of truthing.
  345. <DM> *Veil of Shadows works! The switch steps down...... for only a moment. You hear the start of a ringing melody play, but it halts. Veil of Shadows only seems to last for a moment.
  346. <DM> *Yep, you got nothing Kirran. Though, you're starting to strain your Eye...
  347. * Hal steps on the Light switch and fires a Veil of Shadows on the Dark Switch
  348. <DM> *It continues the medley for a tiny bit longer, buuuuuut not quite enough.
  349. <DM> *melody
  350. <DM> *Seems like need a shadow presence that doesn't dissipate instantly...
  351. * Dex casts Suffocating Veil on the dark switch.
  352. <DM> *Darte, you hear footsteps heading towards you once more.
  353. <DM> *Whelp, I guess Suffocating Veil works. So much for Illusion of Creation, a shadow spell that actually stays....
  354. <DM> *Both steps are pressed down!
  355. <DM> *A treasure falls from the ceiling, landing on the point those lines converged and led to.
  356. * Dex opens that bad boy.
  357. * Dex also opens the chest.
  358. * Kirran also also opens the chest
  359. <DM> *A quick melody plays.
  360. * Darte cowers in the elevator, trying to see if he can make it go down.
  361. * Dex opens the chest for Hal.
  362. * Kirran closes the chest for Dex
  363. <DM> https://zurpg.sephiroth.ws/thread-1149-post-2684.html#pid2684 - A Stone Mask from the chest!
  364. <DM> *.... so who's getting it?
  365. * Kirran grabs it.
  366. <Kirran> Ooh.
  367. <Kirran> I know what this is.
  368. <Hal> Whoever has the lowest Wisdom should get it.
  369. <DM> [Raine]: Waaaaaait that's a Sheikah item!
  370. <DM> [Raine]: Okay, why is Sheikah stuff in the Twilight Realm? Next thing I know, a Gossip Stone will pop up...
  371. <Hal> If we are sneaking around, the guards will be checking for our positions
  372. <Kirran> "Too late on that one Raine."
  373. <Darte> (IS THAT A FREAKIN' JOJO REFERENCE!?)
  374. <Darte> https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cKr46XveL6w

  377. * Kirran puts it on.
  378. <Kirran> Now you guys can't see me.
  379. <Dex> I can see you.
  380. <DM> *Darte, without the stone, the elevator doesn't go down. The two Twili guards reach your position and look at you in the elevator.
  381. <DM> [Twili1]: Alright you..... you...... Light Realm dweller! Tell us where your allies are!
  382. <Kirran> Hmm, guess it only works if you're not looking for me maybe?
  383. <DM> *Twili2 aims another light blast at you.
  384. <DM> *Kirran, they can see you perfectly fine.
  385. * Dex looks even HARDER at Kirran.
  386. <Hal> Alright, now that we have the item, we need to get out of this place.
  387. * Darte squeaks in alarm, trying the hookshot a second time. "L-like I said! Down in their cells still! I'm just looking for their food!"
  388. <Kirran> Dammit.
  389. <Dex> I can still see you.
  390. <DM> [Raine]: You dummy, that mask only works on someone you've never met!
  391. * Kirran quickly deflects.
  392. <Kirran> Maybe we should look for Darte?
  393. <Hal> Darte's been spotted
  394. <Hal> That I can assume
  395. <Dex> Give him the mask at least temporarily.
  396. <Hal> They will be looking for us next
  397. <Dex> Who wants to peek out the door.
  398. <DM> [Twili1]: Riiiiiiiight.
  399. * Kirran pops his head out the door with the mask still on.
  400. <Dex> Just kidding! Get to it mask boy.
  401. <DM> [Twili2]: Let's just call in reinforcements, we've got the elevator locked down, as long as we cover it, they're not getting out!
  402. <Hal> Set up illusions of us in the corridor, towards where the crystal is
  403. * Dex does that.
  404. <DM> [Twili1]: Alright, sounds like a plan-
  405. <Hal> If we can draw them to the crystal and they see the illusions of us, they will gun for them while we can run.
  406. <DM> *Darte, you hear a beeping sound. It's...... coming from the Gossip Stone?
  407. * Kirran doesn't see any guards?
  408. * Dex tries to speak Twili.
  409. <DM> [Gossip Stone]: *in a monotone voice* Message from Xanas: The Interlopers are attacking the Sol Fountain, reinforcements have been routed there.
  410. <DM> [Twili1]: Ah shucks, not again! Darn Interlopers, trying to take away our only source of power against 'em. Whatever! You, cover the Light Realmer!
  411. <DM> *Twili2 nods and continues to watch Darte, with a light blast charged.
  412. <DM> *Dex, you..... are speaking in Twili! Kirran and Hal don't understand you.
  413. * Hal pops his head out the door and casts an illusion of sound, on the the pedastal where the gem once was as Dex sets up the illusions of Creation of them. The sound is of himself, Kirran and Dex chattering.
  414. * Darte cringes. "Uh... your public announcement system's ringing?"
  415. <Dex> New plan.
  416. <Dex> I pretend to be a Twili guard that captured you guys. We get on the elevator and leave.
  417. <Dex> Yes?
  418. <Hal> Alright
  419. <DM> [Twili2]: Shaddup you. You even so much as flinch, I'm takin' you out. Good thing we Twili are nicer than you Light Realm Destroyers.
  420. * Dex makes himself look like a Twili guard using the illusion.
  421. * Hal casts an Illusion break on the recently created illusions.
  422. * Dex removes the illusion of the three of them chatting.
  423. <DM> *You pop your head out the door, and immediately see Twili3 looking right at you. Thankfully, he didn't see anything cause you're still camou'd...... but casting that many illusions that close has prompted a ? over its head.
  424. <Darte> "Looook, we're all nice guys! The only thing we've destroyed since getting here is our reputation. Am I right, or am I right?"
  425. <DM> [Twili2]: Go explain that to Queen Midna and the fact that YOU GUYS tried to blow US up!
  426. * Dex rubs the key all over the other two.
  427. <DM> *Hal, Twili3 is looking directly at you. You have camo still though....
  428. * Hal moves back into the door.
  429. <Hal> *into the room
  430. * Hal waits until the door is closed
  431. <DM> *Hal and Kirran, both of you pass out for a moment, but upon awakening, you feel something slightly different.
  432. <Kirran> bah wha?
  433. * Dex rubs the key all over Raine too. Just in case.
  434. <DM> *You guys think you hear the door open, but you're not sure.
  435. <Hal> ... what happened.
  436. <Kirran> (that...was probably not the best idea Dex...)
  437. <DM> *However, Twili3 is now in the room with you. Hal and Kirran, both of your responses were quite audible.
  438. * Kirran doesn't move since he's still wearing the mask.
  439. <DM> *Kirran, you're invisible, thanks to the mask!
  440. <DM> *Hal..... you still have invis, buuuuut....
  441. <DM> *Twili3 charges a light blast in the direction he heard Hal's voice.
  442. <DM> [Twili3]: ... if Xanas asks, I'm cleaning the room. With light.
  443. <DM> *Twili3 fires!
  444. * Hal casts an Illusion of Sound on the Chest, of his voice
  445. <DM> *Twili3 moves his shot to the chest at the last moment.

  448. * Kirran takes the opportunity to move out the door during the insuing light flash
  449. * Hal takes the same oppoturnity.
  450. * Dex follows suit.
  451. <DM> *The chest gets obliterated, and with that, a bright light floods the room momentarily! Hal and Dex, you noticed both of your silhouettes were visible for that moment.
  452. * Darte considers, casting an Illusion of Sound and hoping the Twili doesn't notice. He tries to emulate the Gossip Stone's tone from earlier. "All Twili, Xanas requires you to report immediately to an emergency situation in the key room."
  453. <DM> [Twili3]: Oh I saw that!
  454. <DM> *You guys get out of the room, but shortly afterwards, Twili3 emerges from it, seemingly phasing through the door, thanks to your illusion.
  455. * Darte gives a sheepish grin.
  456. <DM> *He yells.
  457. <DM> [Twili3]: HEY, THERE'S SOME INTRUDERS ROUND HERE! CALL FOR REINFORCEMENTS!
  458. <Darte> (HIM YELL)
  459. <DM> *Twili1 is on the other side of the corridor of light.
  460. * Hal takes his hookshots in hand and dashes, looking for hookshottable targets
  461. * Dex places an Illusion of himself and Hal at the end of the key hallway.
  462. <DM> [Twili1]: OH, SO THERE IS MORE! NO REINFORCEMENTS ARE COMING, INTERLOPERS AT THE SOL FOUNTAIN! LET'S JUST BLAST THE HALLS!

  472. * Dex puts the illusions hands in a hands up position.
  473. <DM> *Darte, you are hardcore knocked out. Not dead, just knocked out.
  474. * Hal is heading down the lit up hallway, searching for hookshottable targets.
  475. <DM> *Hal, there's no targets, unless you try to shoot those orbs above.
  476. * Hal fires his hookshots to the orbs.
  477. * Kirran is just hanging out, not moving by the door. Waiting to see what the heck is going to happen.

  485. <DM> *It's a hit! ...... yeah, no damage
  486. * Dex makes the illusion just himself then.
  487. <DM> *Though, all of your non-armor bonuses are off.
  488. <DM> *You guys hear some yelling emanating from the first hallway.
  489. <DM> [Twili2]: HEY, WE GOTTA GO BACK, THEY'RE CALLING US TO THE KEY ROOM!
  490. <DM> [Twili3]: KEY ROOM? ....... WHAT'S THE KEY ROOM
  491. <DM> *Hal, you round the bottom intersection and see Twili2 looking your direction, yelling back.
  492. <DM> [Twili2]: ....... I HAVE NO IDEA
  493. <DM> [Twili2]: XANAS SENT IT THROUGH THE COMMUNICATION STONE
  494. <DM> [Twili3]: FINE, WE'LL GO.... AFTER WE CLEANSE THE HALLS
  495. <DM> [Twili2]: Hmm, better idea for this one.
  496. <Hal> (I did hookshot the horbs)
  497. <Hal> *orbs
  498. <DM> *Hal, you have orbs stemming from your hookshots. The heck are these things? They're just..... emanating light.
  499. <DM> [Twili2]: HEY, you! Put those Sols back!
  500. <Hal> Alright.
  501. <Hal> I shall.
  502. <DM> *Kirran, and Dex, you see Twili3 attracting the remaining two Sols from the ceiling to his mask. They seem to absorb into the mask, and an aura of light emanates from him.
  503. * Hal returns the Sols to where they came from.
  504. <DM> *Hal, you turn back around to see Twili3 absorbing the other two Sols.
  505. <DM> [Twili3]: Oh, thank you!
  506. <DM> *He starts to attract said other two Sols towards him. FYI, there's no super bright ceiling light, but there is a bright light around Twili3.
  507. * Kirran moves away from Twili 3
  508. <DM> *The other two Sols absorb into Twili3's light mask. It's now shining rather brightly.
  509. * Kirran stops moving again
  510. <DM> *Dex, you notice your silhouette is starting to show even though you're a fair bit away from him.
  511. <DM> *Kirran....... while you're technically visible..... Twili3 looks in your direction and doesn't seem to see you. Weird.
  512. <DM> [Raine]: Huh, that's..... something.
  513. * Dex pickpockets Twili3 since Dex is probably dead either way.
  514. <DM> *It does, however, see a distortion where Dex is.
  515. <DM> *You attempt to see the Twilis' stat blocks, but a weird distortion seems to cause a fuzz to completely block them out.

  565. <DM> *Dex scatters a ton of D20s around, and yet despite 20 of them flying, he fails to get a nat 20. What a fail.
  566. <Dex> Son of WHORE
  567. <DM> *It proceeds to attract the Sols back into its mask as it focuses its gaze on Dex, eyeing him carefully.
  568. <DM> [Twili3]: A what now?
  569. <Dex> Hey
  570. <Dex> Stop that.
  571. <Dex> in their own language
  572. <DM> *Kirran, you meet up with Hal and looking down the first corridor, Twili2 is blocking their way.
  573. <DM> [Twili3]: ..... wait..... that was in Twili....... .........
  574. <Dex> Yeah. You guys AMBUSHED us while we were trying to bring a Mirror Shard to Princess Midna.
  575. <DM> [Twili2]: Gah, matey, get over here already and get me some of those Sols so I can power my shots up! That furry guy seems to have some tough armor...
  576. <Dex> And then THREW us in a cell without so much as a trial.
  577. <DM> [Twili3]: Wait..... what?!
  578. <Dex> Is this how you treat diplomats?
  579. <DM> [Twili3]: We would never do such.... we're not barbarians!
  580. * Hal looks at Twili2.
  581. <Dex> Well that's what happend.
  582. <DM> *Twili3 has pulled its Sols back in. The illusion of invisibility has worn off.
  583. <DM> [Twili3]: Now that I know what caused that...
  584. <Hal> "Did you happen to see a Gerudo lady running about just before?"
  585. <DM> [Twili2]: A what?
  586. <Dex> We were jumped by Interlopers and then a bunch of you guys just showed up and shot us.
  587. * Hal explains to the Twili what Corsava looks like
  588. <DM> *Twili3 aims a charged sol blast at Dex! ..... it's shining RATHER BRIGHTLY!.
  589. * Kirran being still invisible, saunters quietly past the other Twili.
  590. <DM> *Kirran, you... totally sneak past Twili2.
  591. <Dex> Yeah ok "We're not barbarians" you say and then shoot an unarmed civillian.
  592. <DM> [Twili3]: Well yeah, you were talking with Interlopers..... ....... wait.
  593. <Dex> Way to go. Bet you feel real proud of yourself.
  594. <Dex> We weren't TALKING. It was after the Shard.
  595. <Dex> It was trying to find out if we knew where more were.
  596. <DM> [Twili3]: ..... ooooooohhhhhh...... fighting with.......... ......... ORDERS ARE ORDERS, AND UNTIL PRINCESS MIDNA TELLS ME YOU'RE NOT MY ENEMY, YOU'RE MY ENEMY!
  597. <Dex> Yeah and she won't be pleased to hear you shot the person she entrusted to bring her the shard we found.
  598. <DM> *Twili3 raises its Sol Blast annnnnnd FIRES AT.... actually, in your general direction Dex. It seems it can only partially see you, thanks to the re-camou, and it's not close enough to you.
  599. <DM> *Roll Wisdom to try and block it or Courage to run away!

  604. <DM> *It manages to singe you a bit as the blast strikes the other end of the corridor, illuminating Hal in light.
  605. <DM> *Err, Nvm Hal.
  606. <Dex> God DAMN it stop shooting me.
  607. <DM> *Righto, so Dex is at top intersection, Hal is...... capable of looking at Twili3's back, and Kirran is behind Twili2.
  608. <Dex> I'm sick of this. I'm reporting you.
  609. <DM> [Twili3]: Go right ahead.
  610. <Hal> (Can Twili 2 still see me?)
  611. <Dex> Get Midna down here.
  612. <DM> *Twili3 taps its abyss rings.
  613. <DM> *Twili2 does not see you, Hal, though he's eyeing your direction rather intently.
  614. * Kirran goes to check on Darte.
  615. <DM> [Twili2]: Come on, I know you're there...
  616. <DM> *Kirran, you find Darte passed out in the elevator.
  617. <DM> *A portal starts to open up behind Twili3.
  618. * Kirran shakes my head.
  619. * Hal casts an Illusion of Sound further down the hall
  620. * Dex jumps into the portal as it opens.
  621. * Hal hookshots Dex's gem
  622. * Kirran taps Twili 2 on the shoulder
  623. <DM> *Hal, you manage to retrieve the gem before Dex seems to disappear completely.
  624. * Kirran then doesn't move an inch
  625. <FishFillet> Zzzzzzs.
  626. * Hal then sneaks past Twili2, still invisible
  627. <DM> *Dex, you find yourself getting warped into the portal, your whole being getting pulled towards itself...... annnnnnd you black out.
  628. <DM> [Twili3]: ..... well that was easy. I'll let Xanas take care of that one.
  629. <DM> *Twili3 turns towards you, Ha-..... or not.
  630. <DM> *Hal, you manage to sneak past Twili2 as it turns to face........ Kirran?
  631. <DM> *It's looking right at you Kirran....... annnnnd doesn't see you.
  632. * Hal moves into the elevator
  633. <Kirran> (Creepy)
  634. <DM> *Twili3 reaches where Twili2 is, and sees a distortion moving around the elevator.
  635. <DM> [Twili3]: Augh, you let 'em get to the elevator! Screw it, I'm firing right at it!
  636. * Hal casts an Illusion of Corsava in front ot Twili2, away from Kirran
  637. <DM> *Twili2 gets distracted again, buuuuut no matter, Twili3 is firing a full blast straight down the hallway at the elevator! Kirran..... you're kinda right in the path.
  638. * Kirran books it for the elevator
  639. <DM> *It takes a moment for it to charge.
  640. <DM> *Kirran, roll Courage to book it!
  641. * Kirran also throws a deku nut at them
  642. <FishFillet> (Time for reverse cover)
  643. <DM> [Twili3]: Target acquired.

  650. <DM> *The elevator activates!
  651. <Kirran> ow
  652. <DM> *The door closes, and finally, the elevator ascends!
  653. <DM> *Darte, you wake back up.
  654. * Kirran reattaches his legs
  655. <DM> *It reaches the next floor, and stops. Suddenly, a familiar voice pops in from behind you...
  656. <DM> [Gossip Stone]: ...... do I even want to know what you guys did?
  657. <Kirran> No
  658. <Hal> Shenanigans
  659. <Kirran> NO you don't
  660. <DM> [Gossip Stone]: INDEED
  661. <Kirran> I do wish they were more reasonable though
  662. <DM> [Raine]: Waaaaaait a minute, THAT'S A GOSSIP STONE!
  663. <DM> [Gossip Stone]: No, I'm a Communication Stone.
  664. <DM> *As DM, I shall continue to call it a Gossip Stone.
  665. <Hal> We should all thank Dex for his noble sacrifice.
  666. <Kirran> Hey, mysterious voice in the stone, why were there Sheikah markings in that other room?
  667. <DM> *Darkness fills the room momentarily. The next thing you know, Corsava seems to re-exist with you guys!
  668. <DM> [Gossip Stone]: Huh? Sheikah? What's that?
  669. <Kirran> Eye of Truth mean anything to you?
  670. <DM> [Gossip Stone]: They're Twili Symbols, what are you talking about? What's this Sheikah thing you speak of?
  671. <Hal> Distracting that Twili for long enough.
  672. <Corsava> "Huh...I guess the shadow thing means you guys got the stone? World's easiest sneak-job, right? Just the three stooges and a hallway of lights?"
  673. <Corsava> "Or...did it take you to a different area?"
  674. <DM> [Gossip Stone]: Do you not recognize the Mask of the Fused Shadow symbol on this stone?
  675. <DM> *The mysterious symbol on the Gossip Stone is apparently of the Fused Shadow Mask thingy. Huh, so that's what it was....
  676. <Corsava> "What did YOU guys just go through? Holy shit, is she regenerating a leg!?"
  677. <Kirran> He. I'm a he, dammit.
  678. <Hal> We have no knowledge of the Twlight Realm, other than from what happened in the Hylian Civil War
  679. <Kirran> I know the hair is confusing, but sheesh
  680. * Hal mumbles "For once I don't have any knowledge of what we are up against"
  681. <DM> [Raine]: You lying stone, they're Sheikah symbols! Who do you think you are, stony stoned faced stone thing?!
  682. <Corsava> "Oh, sweetie...what the hell happened to- wait where's your pet?"
  683. <Hal> Dex... decided to pay Xanas a visit
  684. <Kirran> I'm kind of confused, but I guess there must be a connection between my tribe and this Twilight Realm we're in.
  685. <Hal> All of this... is completely new to me.
  686. <DM> [Gossip Stone]: I am.... no, I don't trust you all enough to tell you who I am. Just... reassemble the Twilight Mirror for me, won't you? It's your only way out of the Twilight Realm, so it's for you too.
  687. <Dex> am i there yet?
  688. <DM> *Dex, your words are not heard.
  689. <Dex> thats why i typed in lower case
  690. <Dex> all lower = ooc
  691. <Dex> duh
  692. <DM> *Perhaps Dex, you might be heard in another session.... a solo session. o_O Effectively, you split the party. CONGRATS DEX!
  693. <DM> [Gossip Stone]: The Hyrulean Civil War, eh? Oooooh I remember that one. Quite a while ago...
  694. <Hal> Normally I have some idea of where we are or what we are dealing with... but it appears this is not the case here in the Twilight Realm
  695. <Corsava> "Fun. Well, while you were faffing about, I managed to get one of their glow-balls."
  696. <Corsava> "And, you know, obviously this mask."
  697. <Kirran> We're trying to stop the interlopers from reigniting it again. They came damn close.
  698. <Corsava> "Don't uh...touch it. I think it might be a bomb."
  699. <DM> [Gossip Stone]: Yes, I seem to recall.... four warriors of light.... entered the realm, mistook the Twili for Interlopers, and with the help of the Goddesses, promptly nuked the realm, and I believe Princess Midna is still a bit salty. After all, you light realmers kinda killed her father and all. Not to mention a bunch of other innocent Twili.
  700. <DM> [Gossip Stone]: I can't say I forgive you either..... but there are more... present threats now.
  701. <Corsava> *shrugs* "That...sounds like a fair reason to hate our guts."
  702. <Kirran> I guess that would put a damper on dimplomacy.
  703. <Hal> Anyways, our next task is to gain the trust of the Twili.
  704. <DM> [Gossip Stone]: I do believe Midna hates the Interlopers a tad bit more than you guys, so... you still have a chance.
  705. <DM> [Gossip Stone]: Otherwise, you'd most certainly be dead.
  706. <Corsava> "Excellent idea."
  707. <Kirran> We're not exactly fans of the interlopers ourselves. They tried to revive Garunoff, an evil king of ages past. Among other atrocities.
  708. <Hal> They didn't kill us in the first place. And I am pretty sure they didn't kill Darte either.
  709. * Kirran pokes the fried fish
  710. <Hal> Err, kill him just then.
  711. <Hal> He looked just... knocked out.
  712. <DM> [Gossip Stone]: Now shoo, fix the Twilight Mirror. There's two fragments left. Interlopers have one, and..... actually, I never figured out where the other one was.
  713. <Kirran> You mean the reflecty mirror?
  714. <Hal> Dex had the other one.
  715. <Kirran> shard thing
  716. <Corsava> *bows her head to the stone* Then it'll be in the armory.
  717. <Corsava> "With the rest of our special equipment."
  718. <DM> [Gossip Stone]: That shard was a tiny piece. Twili already have the biggest piece, but there's two more they're missing.
  719. <Hal> Oh.
  720. <Hal> Soo... looks like my expectations have been shattered again.
  721. <Kirran> Well, we stole the shard off an interloper, so you'll be glad to know they don't control that piece any more.
  722. <DM> [Gossip Stone]: Whatever you do... please don't tick off the Interlopers TOO much. I don't want to have to deal with Dark Link again...
  723. <Dex> DEX stole the shard
  724. <Hal> So Dark Link is still alive.
  725. <Kirran> Dark...Link?
  726. <Darklink42> Of course!
  727. <Hal> I thought he was killed in the Hyrulean Civil War.
  728. <Corsava> *Corsava grins under the mask* "Dark Link? Sounds hot, and strong..."
  729. <Kirran> I thought that was old myth.
  730. <Kirran> A metaphor for fighting your inner demons
  731. <DM> [Gossip Stone]: Still strong as ever. Usually in the backlines, commanding the forces though. Avoid fighting him at all costs, ESPECIALLY with your special items once you get them back.
  732. <Hal> Understood.
  733. <FishFillet> (Oh no, Corsava's crossing _that line_)
  734. <DM> [Gossip Stone]: By the way, I've just heard over the network of communication stones.... you might have a bit of a scramble once you step out this elevator. Though if you don't step out...... you may never get out of this elevator.
  735. <Hal> Alright
  736. <DM> *Gossip Stone kindly retreats into the..... wall?
  737. <Kirran> Double cross flash and book it?
  738. <DM> *Your maps of the area attempt to update, but in doing so, their lack of proper hardware seem to cause:
  739. <DM> -=LOADING=-
  740. <Corsava> "Did you know that they can't see through smoke? It even chokes them."
  741. <DM> -=LOADING=-
  742. <DM> -=SESSION END=-
  743. <FishFillet> Dagnabbit, who scratched the disk
  744. <Kirran> Twili hates smoke?
  745. <Corsava> *blows on the cartridge*
  746. <Kirran> Twili is a dodongo?
