  1. <DM> -=QUEST RESUME=-
  2. <DanKaze> Ack, what is this darkness? And... why is there floating text? What's this "LOADING SCREEN" the darkness speaks of?
  3. <Lightwall> I can only wonder...
  4. * Gurloz kicks DanKaze out the window.
  5. * Gurloz has kicked DanKaze from #zurpg2 (You have been kicked out the window and you landed in "This Causes an Error" from Rise of the Triad. I'M FREE! «16,752»)
  6. * Lightwall seems entranced by the Loading screen...
  7. <DM> *Combined with "This is an Error", the Loading Screen glitches, and the fourth wall looms over you. You can see Kefka driving an ambulance across the top of you, armed to the teeth with bot-hacking Navi and all of his FF6 abilities powered up exponentionally to KEESE AND CO. levels.*
  8. <DM> *Okay, back to the plot.....*
  9. <Lightwall> (lol)
  10. <DM> *As you enter the next room, torches on the wall light up with blue fire. On the other side of the room appears Magu- wait, wrong game.*
  11. <Lightwall> (Where's Frog? I need the Masamune!)
  12. <DM> *On the other side of the room is a figure in white robes. You can see the grizzled, rough features of a battle-scarred face creeping from underneath the darkness partially hiding his face. He stares at you intently with glowing green eyes.*
  13. * DM (~Orithan@ has joined #zurpg2
  14. <DM> ...... well this is confusing and awkward. THANKS DM.
  15. * Gurloz kicks DM out the window.
  16. * Gurloz has kicked DM from #zurpg2 (You have been kicked out the window and you landed on Sephiroth. What? «16,753»)
  17. <DanKaze> Umm... this is potentially creepy....
  18. <DanKaze> Hi there!
  19. * DanKaze waves casually at the figure, as per usual by Dan Kaze standards.
  20. * Lightwall glances as Dan, then back at the robed figure.
  21. * Lightwall cautiously steps forward a couple steps.
  22. * X__X is now known as RobedFigure
  23. * RobedFigure speaks to you with a rusty but booming voice.
  24. <RobedFigure> Why are you here, Joseph Lightwall... Dan Kaze?
  25. <DanKaze> Uhhhh..... question, I don't think I told you my name-
  26. * RobedFigure steps forward.
  27. <RobedFigure> Why are you here, Dan Kaze? Joseph Lightwall?
  28. <Lightwall> We are here to join the Followers of Light.
  29. <RobedFigure> Why do you wish to join the Followers of Light?
  30. * Gurloz is now playing: Orician - Only a Child (Original mix)
  31. <Lightwall> I wanted to see if I could become powerful.
  32. <DanKaze> Yeah, uhhh....
  33. <DanKaze> I wanna be the very best... that no one ever was. And only you can teach me such power, nice guy!
  34. * RobedFigure steps towards you again. Now he's about 10 feet away from you.
  35. <RobedFigure> Power? The best?
  36. <RobedFigure> Do you not believe in peace?
  37. <Lightwall> I believe in keeping the peace, but sometimes keeping the peace means war.
  38. <RobedFigure> And you, Dan Kaze?
  39. <DanKaze> WELL....... SOMETIMES.... THERE ARE WARS.
  40. <DanKaze> AND SOMETIMES...... IN ORDER TO END THEM......
  41. <DanKaze> .... we need power.
  42. <RobedFigure> I see.
  43. <RobedFigure> I shall give you.... power... for a little while...
  44. <DanKaze> Wait, you can do that?
  45. <RobedFigure> When you have controlled the Dark Side of the-
  46. <RobedFigure> When you are full fledged member of the Followers of Light.... anything is possible.
  47. <Lightwall> (Darth Vader, I presume? lol)
  48. <DM> (Lord Sidious sounds more accurate)
  49. <Lightwall> (no kidding!)
  50. <RobedFigure> Now... defend yourselves!
  51. <DanKaze> Wait wha-
  52. * RobedFigure charges at both of you. By the time he reaches you, another robed figure appears alongside him. Both of them strike their hands at you. (Roll Power!)
  53. * Lightwall draws his sword and shield and gets in a battle stance.
  54. <DanKaze> Awwwwwww shhhhhhhhhhhhh-

  62. <Navi> RobedFigure: You rolled 34 Dice with 10 Sides. Result: 10, 1, 4, 9, 2, 7, 5, 7, 1, 7, 9, 7, 4, 1, 2, 5, 2, 9, 2, 3, 5, 2, 8, 7, 9, 4, 1, 5, 2, 9, 3, 10, 5 and 6. Total: 173. Successes: 21.
  63. <Lightwall> *o* Ooch!
  64. * RobedFigure places his hands on Lightwall. His clone places his hands on DanKaze as well. Their grips on you are tight and sudden, but it doesn't feel like they're killing you.
  65. <DanKaze> Ack!
  66. <Lightwall> *_O
  67. * DanKaze kneels to the ground in pain.
  68. <DanKaze> You.... you're doing it..... wrong....
  69. <DanKaze> Vulcan nerve pinch..... is a little....... to the left.
  70. <Lightwall> -Shhh! Don't tell them that!-
  71. <RobedFigure> You have quite the humor, red one.
  72. <RobedFigure> And you, Lightwall... what kind of power do you desire?
  73. <Lightwall> I wasn't aware there were different kinds. What are they?
  74. <RobedFigure> ... very well.
  75. <DM> *Both robed figures transfer some form of lights into you.*
  76. <DM> *Lightwall, you receive a rainbow assortment of lights, and as you do, you can feel each affinity flare within you strongly. You feel as if you can use every affinity at will, however you wish.*
  77. <Lightwall> Are these... elements? Is the blue one 'water'?
  78. <DM> *Dan Kaze, you receive a black light that one cannot see through. As you receive it, you find your vision goes blank, but you feel as if you can summon.... something. You're just not sure what it is.*
  79. <DanKaze> ..... why can't I see.
  80. <DanKaze> Lightwall, did you use your powers to turn the lights out?
  81. * Cirn0 has quit (Quit: Ping Timeout)
  82. <Lightwall> ... No, I don't think so.
  83. * RobedFigure steps back from you. His clone merges back into himself. Seems it was some sort of mirror image.
  84. <RobedFigure> Why don't you try and see?
  85. <RobedFigure> In fact, I'll give you a better testing ground to use it on...
  86. * RobedFigure steps to the side and holds his hand out towards the other side. It appears to be another door.
  87. <RobedFigure> Beyond that door... is a conflict. A war, so to speak.
  88. <RobedFigure> Use your powers to... bring peace to it.
  89. * RobedFigure smiles deviously. He laughs quietly.
  90. <DanKaze> Wait, where is it? I can't see crap, Sherlock!
  91. * Lightwall cautiously steps toward the door.
  92. * DanKaze is currently "looking" in the direction of the door. He can't actually see, though.
  93. * Lightwall calls to Dan, upon reaching the door, "It's over here."
  94. * Lightwall tries to open the door.
  95. <DanKaze> Okay!
  96. * DanKaze waltzes over in your direction, stumbling slightly.
  97. <DM> *You open the door, reluctant of the plot.*
  98. * Gurloz kicks DM out the window.
  99. * You have been kicked from #zurpg2 by Gurloz (You have been kicked out the window and you landed in Windows 8! «16,755»)
  100. * DM enters Windows 8, reluctant of its functionality, stability, loading screen, and...... its plot written by Microsoft.
  101. <Lightwall> (lol)
  102. <DM> (hang on, brb bathroom)
  103. <Lightwall> (cool)
  104. <DM> *You enter the next room as Dan Kaze stumbles in and trips after you, falling face-first on the wooden floor, tasting a bit of blood from..... someone....*
  105. * Lightwall looks around.
  106. <DM> *You see you've entered some sort of dojo, which is partially wrecked from combat. Two groups of about three men each are glaring at each other like barbarians, carrying a variety of deadly weapons, like axes, swords, and spiked clubs. They all seem a bit injured, but nonetheless ready to fight each other to the death. Their clothing resembles the poor folks of Hyrule Village's south-eastern district.*
  107. <DanKaze> Hey uhh....... Lighty? Whaddya see? I hear some battle cries and agony..... where are we?
  108. <DM> *They do not appear to have noticed you yet. They're too focused on each other, waiting for someone to make a move.*
  109. * Lightwall looks at his hand, thinking of the blue light he saw, and tries to focus that color energy into his hand.
  110. <DM> *A rushing of water forms in your hand in a spiral, similar to a Rasengan.*
  111. <DanKaze> What's that water sound?
  112. <DanKaze> Lightwall, that better be you, or else I'm outta here.
  113. <Lightwall> It's me. Just trying something out.
  114. <DanKaze> Oookay.
  115. * Lightwall looks up to spy a target, focusing more energy but into both hands together.
  116. <DM> *Suddenly, one of the men makes a move. He swings his spiked club at the other group. One of his targets defends using a crude, half-broken shield.*
  117. <DM> $6d10
  118. <Navi> DM: You rolled 6 Dice with 10 Sides. Result: 8, 6, 10, 8, 1 and 10. Total: 43. Successes: 7.
  119. <DM> $7d10
  120. <Navi> DM: You rolled 7 Dice with 10 Sides. Result: 8, 7, 6, 9, 8, 4 and 4. Total: 46. Successes: 5.
  121. <DM> *Your water blast charges and grows larger.*
  122. * Lightwall tries to shoot the water at the man with the spiked club (as in "Hadouken!").
  123. <DM> *Roll your Wisdom...... +10
  124. <Lightwall> $17d10
  125. <Navi> Lightwall: You rolled 17 Dice with 10 Sides. Result: 10, 6, 9, 3, 6, 10, 6, 4, 4, 10, 7, 2, 1, 8, 5, 9 and 8. Total: 108. Successes: 15.
  126. <DM> *The man is just barely hitting and breaking through the shield when he sees the water blast and tries to jump away to dodge it.*
  127. <DM> $3d10
  128. <Navi> DM: You rolled 3 Dice with 10 Sides. Result: 2, 3 and 8. Total: 13. Successes: 1.
  129. <Lightwall> 15-1=14
  130. <DM> *Your water blast slams into him as he's in mid-jump. The highly focused water blast hurls him across the room and slams him against the wall in the back. As he falls down, you can see the wooden wall behind it cracked and splattered with blood.*
  131. * Lightwall cringes inside, not letting it show while he focuses on the battle.
  132. <DM> *He tries to get back up, but he falls back over and faints.*
  133. <DanKaze> What was that crackling sound?
  134. <Lightwall> Um, I guess I just water-blasted that guy against a wall.
  135. <DanKaze> Oh cool! ..... what's the rest of them doing?
  136. * Lightwall looks at them to see.
  137. <DM> *The rest of them turn towards you, surprised by the deadly blast of water. They seem frightened, shaking, but they aim their weapons at you.*
  138. * Lightwall looks at his right hand, focusing on the red in his mind and focusing it into his hand.
  139. <DM> *Then, the man that had the shield broken turns towards the other group, drawing a knife and grinning devishly. The other group notices and turns their weapons away from you, and soon, they're back to focusing on each other, those they're making periodic glances in your direction.*
  140. <DM> (oh right)
  141. <DM> *You focus the color red in your hand, and your hand becomes ablaze with fire, yet it does not harm you. You can feel its warmth though.*
  142. * Lightwall looks at the one who grinned devishly, focuses more energy in his right hand, and attempts to shoot that energy straight at the grinning man.
  143. <DM> *A stream of fire emerges from your hand at the man. Roll Wisdom +12!*
  144. <Lightwall> (i made a mistake last time; I used the Power stats)
  145. * DanKaze appears to stop moving, standing with his hands in his pockets.
  146. <DM> (meh, it's fine)
  147. <Lightwall> $20d10
  148. <Navi> Lightwall: You rolled 20 Dice with 10 Sides. Result: 6, 6, 4, 9, 6, 10, 8, 1, 4, 3, 6, 8, 3, 3, 9, 4, 8, 6, 7 and 8. Total: 119. Successes: 14.

  154. <DM> *The fire strikes the man, caught unaware. He is set aflame, cursing in agony. His allies try to put him out, but it's too late - the other group attacks them, slaughtering them and pinning their bodies to the walls.*
  155. <DanKaze> Ooooooh, that agony better be a good thing-
  156. <DM> *The group that pinned them turns towards you, berserk-like. They start stepping towards you, weapons ready.*
  157. <DM> *The illusion tracker you have turns a shade of dark purple for a moment.*
  158. * Lightwall focuses green energy in his left hand.
  159. <DM> *Roots sprout from your hand. Their tips hover around like snakes, waiting for prey.*
  160. * Lightwall points his left hand at the oncoming warriors and releases the energy.
  161. <DM> *A large tree branch appears, zooming towards them. (Roll Power +15)*
  162. <Lightwall> $22d10
  163. <Navi> Lightwall: You rolled 22 Dice with 10 Sides. Result: 7, 7, 10, 2, 3, 10, 8, 4, 9, 1, 3, 10, 5, 5, 5, 9, 1, 7, 4, 3, 4 and 8. Total: 125. Successes: 16.

  170. <DM> *All three of them are blown back, as if you just hit them all with a giant bowling ball. Roots spawn from the tree branch, and they move towards the warriors, ready to strangle them to their deaths.*
  171. <DM> *Before the roots are able to strangle the victims, the room and the still-living men halt, as if time froze.*
  172. <Lightwall> ?
  173. * X__X is now known as RobedFigure
  174. * RobedFigure phases in through the wall on the other side, slowly walking towards you as he speaks.
  175. <RobedFigure> Is this how you intend to use your power to end wars?
  176. <RobedFigure> By killing everyone?
  177. <RobedFigure> Bringing peace to a lifeless land?
  178. <Lightwall> ...
  179. <DanKaze> Wait, I didn't do anything, I'm still blind!
  180. <RobedFigure> Tell me, Joseph Lightwall, Dan Kaze....
  181. <RobedFigure> Why do you wish to join the Followers of Light?
  182. * Gurloz kicks DanKaze out the window.
  183. * Gurloz has kicked DanKaze from #zurpg2 (You have been kicked out the window and you landed in a room full of Metroids! (I'm Sephiroth. Nice to meet you Blind.) «16,761»)
  184. <DanKaze> (touche, Batman)
  185. <Lightwall> Actually, ... I... thought they were followers of wisdom... not of power...
  186. * RobedFigure starts walking in a circle around you.
  187. * Lightwall is looking at his hand, trying to figure things out.
  188. <DM> *Various powers appear from your hands, appearing and disappearing at will from your attempt to figure things out.*
  189. <RobedFigure> And why do you suppose that is?
  190. <Lightwall> Because of the Triforce that corresponds to Nayru is a different color...
  191. <RobedFigure> That is obvious. What does it represent?
  192. <Lightwall> ... I didn't use much wisdom back there, only power...
  193. <DanKaze> Power is pointless without Wisdom.
  194. <Lightwall> Nayru represents wisdom, but beyond that I don't know much behind it.
  195. * RobedFigure pauses.
  196. <RobedFigure> Power.... is pointless... with Wisdom.
  197. * Gurloz face-palms.
  198. <RobedFigure> Lightwall, you have shown us what Power without Wisdom is.
  199. * Lightwall thinks, "That's for sure..."
  200. * RobedFigure displays the room before you, a cacophony of death and destruction.
  201. * Lightwall looks around unhappily.
  202. <RobedFigure> Show me, again.... how Power can bring peace to war. This time... using Wisdom.
  203. * RobedFigure taps his head with his finger twice.
  204. <DM> (Name's Axel..... GOT IT MEMORIZED?)
  205. <RobedFigure> I shall restart this illusion....
  206. <RobedFigure> And perhaps this time, Dan Kaze...
  207. <DanKaze> WHAT? ME? WHAAAA?
  208. <Fireblast124> ((Spoilers: Axel backwards is Lexa))
  209. <RobedFigure> ... you should be more certain about your unknown powers.
  210. <DanKaze> ... that makes no frigin' sense. ...... OKAY!
  211. <Lightwall> (Axel? From the Kingdom Hearts games? Sweet!)
  212. * RobedFigure walks out of the room by phasing through one of the walls.
  213. * Lightwall thinks, "Yeah, I thought it was an illusion!"
  214. * RobedFigure is now known as X__X
  215. <DanKaze> I can't tell. ..... can't see at all.
  216. * Gurloz kicks DanKaze out the window.
  217. * Gurloz has kicked DanKaze from #zurpg2 (You have been kicked out the window and you landed in a Python Script. «16,762»)
  218. <DanKaze> ..... this is even more confusing than being blind. At least it's not Java.
  219. <DM> *The room and its victims resets, leaving you in a blank, white space for a moment. After a few seconds, the illusion returns at its starting point, that is..... when you entered it.*
  220. * Lightwall looks at his hand and thinks, "I wonder if there's an air power in here I can use to blow their weapons away..."
  221. <DM> *As you think such a thing, a fleet of gusts of air are summoned around you at your command.*
  222. <DanKaze> I hear wind...... uhhh..... are you gonna kill them again?
  223. * Lightwall thinks, "Oops! I think it's supposed to be Dan's turn!" and stops thinking about air.
  224. <DM> *Your fleet disassembles.*
  225. <Lightwall> Sorry! I was just thinking about air, and the wind started after that.
  226. <DM> *The man with the spiked club budges slightly. He grins as he readies his weapon.*
  227. * Lightwall thinks about the green light and looks at Dan, trying to focus the green energy into Dan.
  228. <DM> *A swirl of nature energy spirals around you briefly before shooting at Dan. Rather than striking him and killing him, it wraps around him, until he's glowing with the nature energy.*
  229. * Fireblast124 is now known as Fireblast
  230. * Fireblast is now known as Fireblast124
  231. <DanKaze> Oooh yeah...... that's some goooooood power!
  232. * DanKaze points in the direction of a wall, away from the groups, and fires off a deadly tree, blasting down one of the walls.
  233. <DM> *The armed men turn towards you, shocked.*
  234. <DanKaze> Woops, DIDN'T MEAN TO DO THAT THAT!
  235. <DanKaze> Alright......
  236. <DanKaze> Uhh...... Lightwall, did I accidentally kill one of them?
  237. <Lightwall> Just focus!
  238. <DanKaze> Okay, okay!
  239. <Lightwall> No.
  240. * DanKaze kneels down on the ground. He closes his eyes and places his hand on the ground.
  241. <DM> *Ten seconds pass, and suddenly, the room shakes for a brief moment. The armed men are startled, but compose themselves as the rumble stops.*
  242. <DanKaze> Hah... ha-haaaaaaah.......
  243. * DanKaze looks up in the direction of the armed men.
  244. <DanKaze> .... worked, suckers. I can see you all..... ......
  245. <DanKaze> ..... I don't know what you look like....... BUT I CAN SEEEEEEEEE YOOOOOOOUUUUUUUUUU.
  246. <DM> *Oh yeah, your Illusion Tracker pulsed green. Forgot about that.*
  247. <Lightwall> (thanks)
  248. <DM> *It appears DanKaze's plan to use an earthquake illusion and attune himself to it to find the positions of everyone worked. He still can't see worth crap though.*
  249. * DanKaze tries to focus on various things....... nothing happens.
  250. <DanKaze> Hey, Light..... instead of hitting them....
  251. <DanKaze> Why don't you prevent them from hitting each other?
  252. <Lightwall> (BTW, what colors are available to Lightwall other than green, red and blue? Purple is shadow... ?)
  253. <DM> (Pale yellow = Light
  254. <DM> (Purple = Shadow
  255. <DM> (and yeah, those three colors)
  256. <DM> (you actually don't have access to Arcane)
  257. <Lightwall> (thx)
  258. * Lightwall thinks about air and focuses the energy in both hands separately.
  259. <DM> *You form air bombs in your hands. That looks a little dangerous, dontcha think?*
  260. <DM> *The man with the spiked club turns towards the man with the half-broken shield.*
  261. * Lightwall thinks, "that's not what I want..."
  262. <DM> *The air disperses entirely.*
  263. * Lightwall thinks about using winds to take their weapons away.
  264. * Fireblast124 is now known as Fireblast
  265. <DM> *The fleet of gusts reappears at your command.*
  266. <DM> *The man with the club gets ready to attack.*
  267. * DanKaze holds his hands out towards the group.
  268. <DanKaze> Ready when you are.
  269. * Lightwall directs the air energy at the weapons of the warriors, to blow the weapons against the back wall.
  270. <Lightwall> Now!
  271. <DM> *Your gusts soar towards the men. Upon being summoned, a fleet of large birds appears, flying with the gusts.*
  272. <DM> *It appears as though the birds take the weapons of the men away, knocking them to the other side of the room.*
  273. <DM> *The wind stops, and the birds fly out through the hole in the wall made by that tree branch earlier.*
  274. <DM> *The men, now unarmed, stop glaring at each other and turn towards you.*
  275. <DM> *They seem frightened.*
  276. * Lightwall thinks about the green color and using its power to make an earth wall raise up in between the two groups.
  277. <DM> *A wall of earth does indeed rise between the two groups, preventing them from reaching each other.*
  278. <DanKaze> Hang on, what'd you just do. Why do I feel something like a uhhhhh....... wall or something?
  279. <Lightwall> I put an earth wall between them to keep them from fighting.
  280. <DanKaze> ....... what good is that gonna do?
  281. <DanKaze> Moment that wall is down, they'll just fight each other again.
  282. <Lightwall> Lemme' talk to them.
  283. <DanKaze> Oookay.
  284. <Lightwall> (to the men) Fighting won't solve anything! Talking about your problems will! Why are you fighting?
  285. <DanKaze> *The men grumble in whispers that you can't understand. Looks like they can't actually "talk" about their problems.*
  286. * Gurloz drops a jukebox into the middle of the room.
  287. * Gurloz is now playing: FamilyJules7x - Fear Factory Donkey Kong Country Guitar Cover
  288. <DM> froeafhreiafraeh
  289. <DM> *The men grumble in whispers that you can't understand. Looks like they can't actually "talk" about their problems.*
  290. <DanKaze> Huh, I hear some weird sounds. Is that them talking?
  291. <Lightwall> Uh... Maybe... like they don't know how.
  292. * Lightwall scratches his head, thinking.
  293. <DanKaze> Hmm... I'm gonna try summoning something.
  294. <DanKaze> Hope this works!
  295. <Lightwall> Okay.
  296. * DanKaze summons a blob of darkness around the earth wall.
  297. <DanKaze> .... uhhhhh...... what'd I just summon?
  298. <Lightwall> Darkness, a blob of darkness around the wall I made.
  299. <DanKaze> Ah....... hm......
  300. <DanKaze> Maybe...... they just need to sit down..... and chat......
  301. <Lightwall> Hmm, maybe so. Lemme' drop the wall.
  302. <DM> *As DanKaze thinks this, the darkness picks up the earth wall from the ground. It turns the wall horizontal to the ground, causing it to grow legs.*
  303. <Lightwall> Oh, I guess that works!
  304. <DM> *The darkness dissipates, leaving a wooden table with benches on either side for the groups to sit down.*
  305. <DanKaze> What works?
  306. <DanKaze> Lightwall, you didn't kill them again, did you? Man that's sneaky......
  307. <Lightwall> No, you put the wall horizontally! Did you do that with your thoughts?
  308. <DM> *The men look at the table. They look back at each other, confused.*
  309. <DanKaze> Uhhh... I guess? Are they sitting down yet?
  310. <Lightwall> Nope. I gotta' do something.
  311. * Lightwall walks toward the table, hoping to demonstrate walking to the table and sitting down.
  312. <DM> *You have no chair to sit down in.*
  313. <DanKaze> Wait, I got an idea.....
  314. <DanKaze> I'm going to create an uber chair......
  315. <DanKaze> And sit in it. In front of them. To demonstrate how epic sitting in a chair feels.
  316. <Lightwall> (I thought he already summoned benches?)
  317. <DM> (on the long sides, yes)
  318. <Lightwall> (ah, got it)
  319. <DM> (though I don't recommend you sitting on either one, cause that's like choosing sides)
  320. <DM> *As he thinks this, a king-sized chair appears in front of you. It's decorated with lots of ornaments.*
  321. * Gurloz sits on DM's head.
  322. <DM> *Gurloz is the king, by the way. That's his chair. Just letting you know.*
  323. * Gurloz kicks DM out the window.
  324. * You have been kicked from #zurpg2 by Gurloz (You have been kicked out the window and you landed on Christopher Robin! Gotta watch out for those baseballs! «16,764»)
  325. <DM> *This chair is on one end of the table, one that chooses neither side.*
  326. <Lightwall> (to Dan) Thanks!
  327. <DM> *Well, unless you count the North or South sides. But...... those men don't give a crap about those sides. They're like MTV - they're irrelevant.*
  328. * Lightwall goes to sit down in that chair.
  329. <DanKaze> Wha? Awwwwwww man....... I killed someone, didn't I? I used a chair to chop off his spine and then wrap his spine in flowers and give it to someone...... wait, not thinking that, HAH YOU THOUGHT YOU COULD TRICK ME, DM, BUT YOU CAN'T! BECAUSE I AM-
  330. * DM has kicked DanKaze from #zurpg2 (You have been kicked out of the window and landed in the plot, which is beyond the fourth wall. Have fun.)
  331. * DanKaze (~WindStrik@ has joined #zurpg2
  332. <Lightwall> Dan! You're fine!
  333. <Lightwall> No one's dead!
  334. * DanKaze stops sweating.
  335. <DanKaze> .... oh good, I'm still sane.
  336. <Fireblast124> ((Dan was going to spoil the plot, but he was kicked out))
  337. * Gurloz kicks DanKaze out the window.
  338. * Gurloz has kicked DanKaze from #zurpg2 (You have been kicked out the window and you landed inside Hyrule Castle. Shouldn't you be doing something else other than roaming the castle? «16,765»)
  339. * DanKaze (~WindStrik@ has joined #zurpg2
  340. <DM> *You sit down in your epic chair. The men look around a bit, then sit down on their benches.*
  341. <DanKaze> My sensors detect they moved towards the table. ... they're sitting down, right?
  342. <Lightwall> Yes! They are!
  343. <DanKaze> Cool.... now what?
  344. <DM> *The men look at each other, at you, back at each other, and then.... raise their fists towards each other.*
  345. <Lightwall> (to the men) Now, only one person speaks at a time. Everyone else listens and waits his turn to speak.
  346. <Lightwall> And no fist-raising!
  347. <DM> *They completely ignore you. It seems they're able to beat each other in a table fight.*
  348. <DanKaze> Hmm... I'm feeling hungry. Got any food, Lightwall?
  349. * Lightwall focuses his air energy across the table, just a wind to get everyone's attention.
  350. <Lightwall> Quiet down!
  351. <DM> *Their attention focuses on you for a moment, then they go back to baring their teeth at each other.*
  352. * Gurloz is now known as Sephiroth
  353. * Lightwall thinks about a turkey dinner and looks at the table, channeling his energy to see if it will work.
  354. <DM> *A cuccoo dinner spawns on the table, thereby spawning an infinite wave of cuccoos killing literally everyone, including the DM. And no one ate dinner that night.*
  355. <DM> *I mean uhhhhhh........*
  356. <Lightwall> (??? lol)
  357. * Fireblast124 throws a DM namechange at DM
  358. <Lightwall> (except the cuccoos, of course!)
  359. <DM> *An orchard of grapes spawns on the table. It appears the power of nature can't summon turkeys to be fried and served for dinner.*
  360. <Lightwall> (they ate dinner!)
  361. <DM> *The men stare at the grapes and HOLY RAINSTORM BATMAN- okay, back to the game uhhhhhhh
  362. <Lightwall> (lol)
  363. * Sephiroth is now playing: FamilyJules7x - Hailfire Peaks (Icy Side) Banjo-Tooie Guitar Cover
  364. <DM> *One of them was in mid-punch when it connects with some of the grapes, knocking one of them into the mouth of a man on the other side.*
  365. <DM> *He chews it angrily.... then realizes how tasty the grape is.*
  366. <DM> *He smiles and then punches a grape in the direction of the other group. One of them eats it, and soon, the men are punching grapes at each other to eat. ..... fascinating captain.*
  367. * Lightwall smiles, amused and relieved.
  368. <DM> *They go to pick up their weapons.*
  369. <DanKaze> Why do I sense them moving towards their weapons.....
  370. <DanKaze> Liiiiiiiiiggggggggggghhhhhhhhht............ what'd ya do this time....
  371. <DM> *They pick up said weapons... and then return to the grape orchard on the table.*
  372. <Lightwall> They got their weapons but are coming back to the table!
  373. <DanKaze> THAT'S A GOOD THING?!
  374. <DanKaze> WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU?!
  375. * Lightwall thinks about the red energy and imagines the weapons becoming hot, but not burning.
  376. <DM> *They then use their weapons to.... bat the grapes at each other, like a sport.... like tennis..... using swords and grapes.*
  377. <Lightwall> (take back what I said please???
  378. <DM> *Your red energy does not cause hot death afterall.*
  379. <Lightwall> It's okay, Dan, they're having fun with the grapes!
  380. <DanKaze> What part of "having fun with grapes" has anything to do with WEAPONS?! DEADLY WEAPONS OF DEATH AND....... DEATH!
  381. <DM> (warning, there's a thunderstorm, so if I drop out, power/internet went out)
  382. <Lightwall> How about, using them to bat grapes at each other makes it like a sport!
  384. <DanKaze> ....... can I join?
  385. * Lightwall facepalms.
  386. * Lightwall laughs and says, "Well, if you could see, you could!"
  387. <DM> *They finally finish the grapes off, drop their weapons, and approach each other, standing on the benches.*
  388. <DanKaze> Touche.
  389. * Fireblast124 is now known as DM2
  390. <DM> *They extend their hands towards each other and shake hands, laughing and smiling.*
  391. * Lightwall smiles and thinks, "Well, I think my work here is done! ... I hope."
  392. * X__X is now known as RobedFigure
  393. * DM2 is now known as DM
  394. * RobedFigure waltzes in by phasing through a wall, as per usual.
  395. <RobedFigure> Ahh.... so it appears you have Wisdom within you after all.
  396. <DanKaze> I hear that dude speaking again. Is he about to kill me again?
  397. <Lightwall> Just relax.
  398. * DM is now known as Fireblast124
  399. * RobedFigure suddenly appears behind DanKaze and places his hand strongly on the back of his head.
  400. <DanKaze> ACK, WAIT, DON'T KILL ME, DON-
  401. <DanKaze> .......
  402. <DanKaze> Ooh.
  403. * DanKaze blinks a few times.
  404. <DanKaze> I CAN SEE!
  405. <DanKaze> I CAN SEE CLEARLY NOW!
  406. <DanKaze> ... I'M GONNA KILL THE ****ING DM!
  407. * DM has kicked DanKaze from #zurpg2 (Lol you wish)
  408. * Lightwall smirks.
  409. <Fireblast124> ((Dan can finally see... But can he see why children love the taste of Cinnamon Toast Crunch?))
  410. <DanKaze> (I have no idea what that means. ..... no)
  411. * RobedFigure stops gripping the back of his head.
  412. <RobedFigure> Impressive skills, Dan Kaze. Your creation skill is most impressive.
  413. <Lightwall> (Skull massages work every time. :P )
  414. <DanKaze> Oh, that's what I had? Kool.
  415. <RobedFigure> And you, Joseph Lightwall. You demonstrated how power can be used to create peace.
  416. <RobedFigure> I commend you both.... but you finished a little early.
  417. <DanKaze> Za?
  418. * RobedFigure points at the men.
  419. <Lightwall> Huh?
  420. <DM> *The men are still cheering and acknowledging peace with each other.*
  421. <RobedFigure> The Followers of Wisdom create peace among others. You have done so, but they do not truly follow us yet.*
  422. * Lightwall thinks "I guess he didn't want us to miss the ending. ... I hope that's what he means..."
  423. * RobedFigure moves towards the table and sits in the epic chair.
  424. <RobedFigure> ...... nice chair.
  425. * Lightwall almost says "Thanks", but then remembers that was Dan that made it.
  426. <DanKaze> Oh right, that was my chair. .... man I'm awesome!
  427. * RobedFigure addresses the men.
  428. <RobedFigure> Gentlemen.... behold....
  429. * Lightwall thinks, "This ought to be good."
  430. * RobedFigure summons a great, gold goblet in front of him. It's filled with red wine.
  431. <RobedFigure> I am of the Followers of Light.
  432. <RobedFigure> With my powers....
  433. * RobedFigure raises his hands. A great blade appears in his hand, shining with a radiant light.
  434. <RobedFigure> I can create anything I desire.
  435. * Lightwall sits on the edge of his seat, ... if he had a seat. Instead, he leans forward, intently watching.
  436. * RobedFigure points the sword towards the ceiling. The light shines outwards, consuming everyone.
  437. <DM> (err, just the men at the table)
  438. <Lightwall> (yeah, not us)
  439. <DM> *The light disappears after a bit, leaving behind the men wearing much more prosperous clothing, not ragged or poor looking.*
  440. <RobedFigure> Should you wish to attain this power....
  441. * RobedFigure summons smaller goblets in front of each man.
  442. * Lightwall opens his eyes wide, amazed.
  443. <RobedFigure> It shall be under my rule.
  444. <RobedFigure> Now...... fill your goblets with wine and drink to your hearts' content!
  445. <DM> *The men dunk their goblets without hesitation into the wine bowl and drink as much as they can, depleting the wine in less than a minute.*
  446. * RobedFigure turns towards you two.
  447. <DanKaze> Wait, did you just give my chair a swivel?
  448. <RobedFigure> Hell yes.
  449. <DanKaze> YOU RULE!
  450. * Lightwall smiles, amused by Dan's remark.
  451. <RobedFigure> And that is how you gain their loyalty.
  452. <RobedFigure> Except...
  453. <DM> *The men fall over, suddenly falling ill and vomiting. They start to bleed from their noses and eyes, crying out in agony and suffocating.*
  454. * Lightwall looks up, confused.
  455. <RobedFigure> Hmph. You should not drink good tasting wine for power so quickly.
  456. <DanKaze> What.
  457. * RobedFigure walks towards you.
  458. <Lightwall> You mean they drank too fast? or is this a metaphor?
  459. <RobedFigure> Both.
  460. <RobedFigure> This is called "deceit".
  461. <RobedFigure> As much as we seek peace, my friends....
  462. * RobedFigure suddenly turns towards one of the men and decapitates him, relieving him of his suffering.
  463. <RobedFigure> We sometimes must do it in ways that others conceive as "horrible".
  464. <RobedFigure> However... is this sight not wonderful?
  465. <RobedFigure> Use your powers to create peace and coexistence among them, then use power to bend them to your will....
  466. <RobedFigure> And once you've done that... they're all under your control.
  467. <Lightwall> Hmmm.
  468. <RobedFigure> What you do with them then no longer matters.
  469. <RobedFigure> At least, to them.
  470. <DanKaze> I like the sound of this.
  471. <Lightwall> Okay.
  472. <DanKaze> So, what more do you have to teach us?
  473. * RobedFigure smiles
  474. <RobedFigure> Much... but..... now I know what it is you two desire. I can feel your passion towards joining the Followers of Light. The rest of this trial will be easy.
  475. <DM> *A doorway into the next room appears.*
  476. <RobedFigure> Continue.
  477. * Lightwall moves to go through the door after opening it.
  478. <DM> *You head through the door, annnnnnnnnnd.........
