  1. *LAST TIME ON ZURPG - Tax Edition*
  2. With the river blocked off ahead, you decided to go to Fort Reikon to negotiate with Mad Lady Memphis, in order to strike a deal with her. Except, you didn't go as yourselves. You went as Hylian Tax Collectors. Melizea became Margaret, the lead negotiator. Darte became Daltus, a bearded man with an envy of other beards. And Sephiroth became Sebastian, who was mainly there to look overly handsome with his silky blonde hair.
  3.  
  4. Not only did you successfully infiltrate Fort Reikon, but you actually managed to get practically everything you wanted from Memphis. To compound on it, her lieutenant, Aila, also known as "The Overseer", took Margaret on an extended tour of the fortress, particularly showing her the tank, and asking her some very specific questions about it.
  5.  
  6. Meanwhile, during all of this, Darte found a way to entrap himself inside of a chest and then halfway merged with it. What he's going to be able to do with it, you have no idea. Perhaps an evolution will take place... assuming Sebastian ever removes his foot from the chest.
  7.  
  8. When Memphis confronted Aila, she revealed herself to be none other than Dio the Happy Mask Man, who apparently took the place of Aila only hours ago. Thanks to this betrayal + your incredible negotiation skills, Memphis straight up became your ally, summoning her full force to take down the Mask Man. Of course, he wasn't alone. With a flick of his fingers, he summoned Fran and the Boss Baba, now with a lava makeover.

  15. <DM> -=SESSION START=-
  16. <DM> *Having stepped out of his fur suit, the Happy Mask Man stands before you, alongside a massive Deku Baba that's breathes loading screens- err lava from its insides. Atop the Lava Boss Baba is none other than Fran, along with a shield of Michael Bay explosions.
  17. <DM> [Happy Mask Man]: Hmm, I think I left something behind in my stash. Guess I'll get it when I go for the tank. But in the meantime...
  18. <Daltus> 27h 7m | Half-fish Half-sword Half-mustache All-Dalton
  19. <DM> *Surrounding them is a dozen Keaton, commandeered by Mad Lady Memphis, your new ally in this fight.
  20. <DM> *Even though it's been revealed you're not who you say you are, it's no matter - the death of the Mask Man comes first!
  21. * Memphis is taking aim at the Masked Man. Might wanna try and sway her before she does anything rash.
  22. <Margaret> (highly doubting that my whatever sense would kick in)
  23. <DM> [Mask Man]: Now Fran, if you'd do the honors, there's a bunch of foxes in our way. Perhaps we'll cook 'em, serve 'em up with those Moblins they've got for their "meat" storage!
  24. <DM> [Fran]: Howdy doo, with pleasure, Boss!
  25. <DM> *Fran starts off with a... hold on.

  78. <DM> [Fran]: Well I was the one who-

  476. <DM> (remind me, how many of those Magic Bone Dusts do you guys have?)
  477. <Margaret> "I see... We'll have to talk to Sephiroth about... using deadly force in near vicinity."
  478. <Margaret> (i have fifteen, i think)
  479. <Margaret> (yeah, fifteen)
  480. <Margaret> (darte apparently also has fifteen)
  481. <Daltus> (15 here too, aye)
  482. <Margaret> (Sephiroth has thirteen)
  483. <DM> *You bundle up all the dead Keaton in one area. Would you like to sprinkle some dust on all of them?
  484. * Margaret sprinkles on about five of them, trying to conserve some bone dust.
  485. <DM> *5 of the dead Keatons spring back to life, though they're still bloodied, and they should probably avoid combat for now.
  486. * Margaret looks to Daltus, "Ensure you get the others up to shape."
  487. * Daltus uses the remainder of his magic to cast 4 Efficient Fairy Beams (reviving 4 keaton at 3 hearts apiece), and sprinkles the remaining keaton with bone dust as well.
  488. <Daltus> (I have 3 more bone dust from prior session that I have in my in-progress profile, too, so total of 18)
  489. <Margaret> (gotcha)
  490. <DM> [Keaton1]: Woah, what happened?!
  491. <DM> [Keaton2]: My bones... they hurt so much!
  492. <Margaret> "Stay calm, we're inside of a void created by... a certain somebody."
  493. * Daltus continues drifting, arms crossed and posture rigid. "And I'm not sure how we get out, either. Bastard needs to watch where he aims these things."
  494. <Margaret> "In a meantime, I suppose we could try to plan out things."
  495. <Daltus> "I suppose it does give us some time to think. I have a feeling Memphis will be quite... upset that you all are presumed dead."
  496. <DM> [Keaton3]: Stay calm?! How am I supposed to stay calm?!
  497. * Daltus wishes he had some splash red potions right about now.
  498. <DM> [Keaton3]: THERE'S A VICIOUS GIANT DEKU BABA RIGHT THERE!
  499. <DM> (lessee, they work as a group, it probably makes sense each carries a splash red)
  500. <Margaret> "Well, it doesn't have the... intellect, shall we say."
  501. <DM> *Two of them break out Splash Red Potions, recovering everyone's health by... how much do those heal by?
  502. <Margaret> (i can't remember, i think it was originally half of a regular red potion, or just the amount of a restoration heart, but that may have changed)
  503. <Daltus> (6 apiece)
  504. <Margaret> (there we go)
  505. * Daltus gives the baba a pitying look. "I think... it's best in here. I can't do anything for it anymore, but I can't bring myself to kill it."
  506. <Margaret> (... note to self, we may need a deeper splash red potion)
  507. <DM> *Kay, make that uhh.... 3 Splash Red Potions. Everyone's back to full!
  508. <DM> *Fully recovered, the Keaton prepare themselves.... for space.
  509. <DM> [Keaton4]: Well, that's good and all, but... how do we get out of here?

If you can't reach someone, we'll reel you in by hookshot. We're gonna have to launch a joint maneuver on whatever concoction that mad purple bastard is cooking up."
  527. <DM> *Everyone links hands.
  528. <Margaret> "Hey Daltus, is it possible for you to obtain the Blessing spell? We may need it."
  529. <DM> [Keaton1]: Whaddya want us to do?
  530. <DM> [Keaton2]: Our wands worked pretty last time, we could blast the Mask Man!
  531. <Margaret> "I fear that attacking the Masked Man would be a fatal decision."
  532. <DM> [Keaton3]: Nay nay, that shield of his is too strong, we're better off going affer something else!

  542. <Margaret> (i have an endowed version of it called Hyper Blessing, which is a +5 stat instead of a +2 stat)
  543. <Margaret> "I see."
  544. * Daltus muses. "... Leave the masked man to me. I have an oath to fulfill to someone, and I think this might be the thing they're waiting for."
  545. <Margaret> "Make certain you do not lose yourself."
  546. <DM> [Keaton1]: Well, if you guys have enough dusts on you... I think we can hold him down.
  547. <DM> [Keaton2]: What, are you suggesting a suicide mission!?
  548. <DM> [Keaton1]: Look, we're well outta our league. It's our best bet.
  549. <Margaret> "I do have a supposed plan for taking out the Deku Baba... Though, it may require some preparation."

  562. <DM> [Happy Mask Man]: This will do just nicely!
  563. * Memphis can't focus on ranged attacks for jack
  564. <DM> *The Mask Man walks towards the great Drill, the one that once drilled into Zora's Domain, and now it's powered by the Heart that the Deku Scrubs use for getting around.
  565. * Memphis consumes... drat. A Full Rejuvination Potion
  566. * Sebastian uses COVER on the drill.

  576. * Memphis can't focus on anything at a distance but attempts to dive into the drill before things go awry, having known where it normally resides
  577. <Memphis> "You're not getting this drill either, Masked Man!"
  578. <DM> *A Darknut Mask has been forced onto you! You protect the Drill, but at a cost. You don the mask, and suddenly, you're transformed into a knight, adorned with great armor! Your Masamune doubles in width, turning into an oversized claymore, and your Tower Shield becomes an even greater Tower Shield!
  579. <DM> (*slap* This bad boy can fit so many masks.)

  585. <DM> *You don't quite break free! But perhaps, in time, you just might.
  586. <DM> *In the meantime, you must obey the orders of the Mask Man!
  587. <DM> [Happy Mask Man]: Goody goody!
  588. <DM> *He giddily rubs his hands together, then looks back at Memphis.
  589. <DM> [Happy Mask Man]: Get rid of the commander.
  590. * Memphis is mounting the drill
  591. <Margaret> (which commander?)
  592. <DM> *The Happy Mask Man, standing quite near the drill, turns to see the drill now mounted by Memphis.
  593. <DM> [Happy Mask Man]: ... ooooooh sh-----
  594. * Memphis uses the drill to drill into the Tank, attempting to at the very least put it out of commission so the Masked Man can't use it
  595. <DM> [Happy Mask Man]: Wait... WAIT
  596. <DM> [Happy Mask Man]: NO, WHAT ARE YOU DOING?!
  597. <DM> [Happy Mask Man]: That's mine, THAT'S MINE, I NEED THAT!
  598. <Memphis> (And Masked Man has spent his attack for the round... I believe so)
  599. <DM> (He's spent, yeah.)
  600. <DM> *You drill the drill into the tank, piercing the heavens, at least for the Mask Man, who really should've grabbed the tank from the start.
  601. <Memphis> "No tank is better than a tank that's in your hands"
  602. <Memphis> "I can't use it anyway now that mr Sebastian killed my men"
  603. <DM> *The drill whirls up and pierces into the tank! It makes a decent sized hole in the tank, crushing it into the wall, and thanks to the Drill's power, it pushes it into the ground!
  604. <Memphis> I guess it's time to see what happens when drill meets tank. I'm sure it is worthy of a report
  605. <DM> [Happy Mask Man]: *fuming with anger* Darknut Sebastian... Destroy that drill... And its commander!
  606. <Memphis> (That's my actions spent for the round)
  607. <DM> *You would, but between using Cover and transforming, you're spent on actions for the round!
  608. <DM> *Round 3, over!
  609. <DM> *Round 4, starto!
  610. <Memphis> (Maw of the void empty time)

  616. <DM> *You succeed! You're still a Darknut, but... you break free from his control!
  617. <Memphis> (The Stalfos should be un-immobolized too)
  618. <DM> *Suddenly, there's an explosion of dark matter, unveiling in the same location that the Maw of the Void occurred in!

  621. <DM> (Okay, so... your Claymore Masamune now rolls Power to attack. It keeps the dice bonus, and it now has a +20 damage on it. Also, thanks to Darknut Strength, you can wield any Two-Handed items with one hand. You gain +10 Power. And any attacks from the front, you gain another +15 Dice on (someone would have to bypass Cover to bypass it).
  622. <Memphis> (What's coming out of the void?)
  623. <DM> (Also, your new armor gives you a nice +15 Armor bonus. Enjoy!)

  628. <Memphis> (+15 Defense Dice from the front)
  629. <Sebastian> I'm confused o-- oh, that's what I was asking about
  630. <DM> (yeah, what Memphis said, sorry)
  631. <DM> *Daltus and Margaret are back at their full strength, as are the 11 Keaton! The Lava Boss Baba is flung across the room, impacting the wall on the opposite side and making a hole in the wall.

  635. <Daltus> (OH NO)
  636. <DM> [Fran]: I'M BACK- woah what in the blazes happened here.
  637. <DM> *Fran is back, though he only has 4 of his Explosive Layers this time.
  638. <DM> [Fran]: Why is the tank gone? Why is there a drill inside of it?
  639. <Margaret> (so, uh, what round are we on)
  640. <Memphis> (4)
  641. <Margaret> (are we on a new round yet)
  642. <Margaret> (are we still in the current round)
  643. <DM> (Round 4. Also, Margaret & Daltus, go nuts on whatever your plan is.)
  644. <Margaret> (i am confused)
  645. <Margaret> (oh)
  646. <DM> (Also, thanks to the spitball of the Maw of the Void, you gain +5 Dice on whatever attack you're about to do.)
  647. * Margaret switches over to the Thunder Materia, and then downs a magic jar to bring herself back up to 8 magic.
  648. <DM> [Happy Mask Man]: Hold on, didn't the blondy kill you all-
  649. <DM> [Keaton1]: EVERYONE CHAAARGE!
  650. <DM> [Keaton2]: FOR THE MAD LADY!

  790. <DM> *Meanwhile, the Scimitar remains stuck inside of the Mask Man's barrier. He steps back, causing you to fall off his barrier and to the ground, no longer holding the Scimitar.
  791. <DM> *You all see a tealish energy emit from the Scimitar, and with the blade inside of the barrier, it explodes outwards, striking the Mask Man again!

  808. * Sebastian is spent.
  809. <DM> *The shockwave explodes inside of the Warp Shield, bouncing around over and over and frying him from the inside of his barrier! From your Spirit Vision, you see his aura of madness wail in terror and despair, desperately trying to escape, but the Chaos Warp Shield contains the damage.
  810. <DM> *Finally, the man inside seemingly crumbles to nothing, leaving the Chaos Warp Shield to dissipate.
  811. <DM> *The scimitar drops to the ground, spent from killing the Masked Man. You all hear a voice from it...
  812. <DM> [Voice]: Ahh, you've finally given me what I wanted. Thank you. I shall return to conquering the land with my own methods.
  813. <Sebastian> (Plot Twist!)
  814. <Margaret> (eh, wasn't that much of a plot twist)
  815. <DM> *The Awoken Twilight Scimitar depowers.
  816. * Memphis looks at the scimitar, looking at where the Masked Man once stood.
  817. <DM> [Keaton1]: Did... did we win?
  818. <Daltus> (I presume Darte's not exactly in normal form, despite being Darteform?)
  819. <DM> [Keaton2]: Is the leader of the Invasion... dead?
  820. <DM> [Keaton3]: Huh... that wasn't so bad!
  821. <Memphis> Finally. Vengeance here.
  822. <Margaret> "I feel as if things are not as they seem."
  823. <DM> *The Keaton are about to enjoy some more remarks, buuuut there's some Stalfos in the room. The Keaton troops quickly get to fending them off.
  824. <Memphis> Rest in peace Thoughter. The man who drove your rampage is gone.
  825. <DM> *As you look through the remains of the Masked Man, you see the items he was carrying dropped... including, well...
  826. <DM> *The Mask of the Happy Mask Man himself.
  827. <Memphis> Don't pick anything he dropped up.
  828. <DM> *There's now a bluish soul hovering over the Mask Man's Mask.
  829. <Memphis> That was how Thoughter was driven to madness
  830. <DM> *Via Spirit Vision, you see some poor Hylian fellow. Looks to be no more than a simple farmer. He looks around in his Spirit Form, confused.
  831. <DM> [Hylian]: Wha-? This ain't tha Ranch! Where... where am I?
  832. <DM> *Darte, you revive from the ground. For the moment, your mind is calm, though... you do feel a little loopy.
  833. <DM> *Sebastian, the Darknut Mask falls off your head, and you return to how you were. I'll write up the Darknut Mask for you later.
  834. * Darte blinks his way upright, holding his head. "... Ungh. Did I hear... Thoughter?"
  835. <DM> [Hylian]: Wh-who are ye all? Are ye affer tha Milk? Ye ain't gettin' it fer free, I reckon!
  836. * Memphis looked back over to see her crew back alive and then back to Darte.
  837. <Margaret> "Fishcrumbs, we may have a more pressing issue at hand."
  838. <DM> [Hylian]: Wait a minute... where's me body? Ae'm missin' me limbs an' fleshy skin!
  839. * Memphis is about to aim an Exploding Darkness at Darte before quickly stopping herself.
  840. <DM> [Hylian]: An' why're there a buncha foxes dukin' it out with Stalfos o'er thar?
  841. <Memphis> "Thoughter had met a terrible fate. Everything he did since he became known was the result of the Masked Man's chaos."
  842. * Darte cranes his neck around to Memphis, blinking as he takes in the strange motley scene about him.
  843. <Margaret> "Well, a lot has happened."
  844. <Margaret> (though, i guess i am technically not "Margaret" now am i)
  845. <Memphis> "We believe that what happened to Thoughter way back when his original bandit company was murdered was that he was exposed to Majora's Vision"
  846. * Darte 's eyes blink slowly. He appears to be looking /past/ Memphis.
  847. <Margaret> (so, uhhh, are the stalfos still being mopped up?)
  848. <Memphis> "This brought him onto a quest to gain the power to defeat Ganon. The power he had acquired, the power Link had, came from the Happy Mask Salesman""
  849. <DM> *Courtesies of helping defeat a boss (or the mask of a boss), your Keaton pals are now enjoying a bit of a stat boost. Combined with the rest of the Keaton in the fortress finally arriving, they're able to clean up the Stalfos in the background.
  850. <Memphis> "This eventually drove him to madness and thus causing all the destruction and chaos he was responsible for"
  851. <Margaret> (wondering if my disturbance sense is kicking in or not)
  852. <DM> *Darte, having returned to his original fishy form, seems to be in a trance. Margaret, your disturbance sense is kicking in... on Darte. Though not specifically him, but whatever he's looking at. Which is... a wall?
  853. * Darte intones, quietly. "What are /you/ doing here? Were you following this madman?"
  854. * Memphis sighed following by holding her head down "Even if this madness was responsible for creating the army, I refuse to tolerate that madness anymore."
  855. <Margaret> "... Darte appears to be unusual..."
  856. <Margaret> "... Almost as if he is staring off into deep space."
  857. * Darte 's hand moves down to one of his blades, gripping it tightly. "No closer, you bastard."
  858. * Memphis turns around to where Darte is staring.
  859. * Darte swings his blade before him and shouts, "LIKE HELLS WE ARE!"
  860. <DM> *To those with Spirit Vision, you all see someone's hand on Darte's shoulder. At least, until Darte swings his sword wildly.
  861. * Memphis stands back in response to Darte's flailing
  862. <DM> *You violently react, and all at once, both the Influence and Madness take hold of you. You're not partnering with him, he's going to be a part of YOUR powers! But his plan, oh his plan is going to be causing quite the chaos, and you too could be a part of it!
  863. * Memphis has no Spirit Vision
  864. <DM> (yep, that's what I thought)
  865. <Margaret> "Something might be attempting to manipulate Darte, I am uncertain what we should do at this moment."
  866. <Memphis> Manipulation...
  867. * Memphis turns to the scimitar and then back to Darte.
  868. * Memphis steps back again, on edge. "That was the scimitar Thoughter used"
  869. <DM> *Memphis, you expect to feel something from picking it up, but instead it's just... well... a blank scimitar. Normal stuff.
  870. <Margaret> (... did memphis even pick up the blade?)
  871. <Memphis> (No)
  872. <DM> (grteloasgjrtueagjoitr
  873. <Sebastian> (I don't think Memphis picked it up)
  874. <Margaret> (that's what i thought, but then master dm confused me)
  875. <DM> *Correction, you look at the blade, expecting to feel something, but you only feel the past and its history.
  876. <DM> (Misread)
  877. <Memphis> (Oh great. Darte's gonna become Bloodwind 2.0)
  878. <Margaret> "... Should we evacuate?"
  879. * Darte mouths something, his voice back to a hushed tone. "... Medlora?"
  880. <DM> *The rest of you have no idea who that is or why he's suddenly saying that name.
  881. <DM> *However, you hear something snapping their fingers in front of Darte, Memphis included this time.
  882. <Margaret> "Darte, try to say a joke."
  883. <Orithan> $recall
  884. * Darte 's face turns to a snarl. "You damned well better believe that Medlora's 'on task'. If I could see her, I bet I could free her."
  885. * Memphis turns around to the source of the finger snap
  886. <DM> *There seems to be some... voice, hovering around Darte's head.
  887. <DM> *There's also Interloper whispers interjecting at random moments.
  888. * Sebastian continues his defensive stance while facing Darte and his ... what have you.
  889. * Darte still stands poised, blade in hand, but isn't waving it about anymore. "... What would I need to do?"
  890. <Margaret> "Darte may not be Darte anymore."
  891. * Memphis steps back, fur raised in fear as she prepares to run. "...I feel something... evil"
  892. <Darte> (What's another death for the sushi man)
  893. <Margaret> "We may need to evacuate, as I have proposed."
  894. <DM> *Sebastian, it's been a looooong long time, but you start to recognize that voice. You last heard it... inside of an Ice Temple. It was some sarcastic smarmy voice, coming from some illusion that suddenly brought up philosophical topics, and harassed you until someone got sick of it and nuked the illusion with a bomb.
  895. <Memphis> "I don't understand... Masked Man is dead. Could this be his spirit?"
  896. * Memphis looked towards Sebastian and Margaret, asking them for input
  897. <Memphis> "Margaret? Should we just run?"
  898. <DM> *Darte's eyes return to normal, and the voice rotating around his head stops.
  899. <Memphis> "If we do run, where to?"
  900. <Sebastian> (Refresh my memory for me?)
  901. * Darte roars. "You can't escape like that. Get back here! Get BACK--"
  902. <Margaret> "Darte, is it possible for you to say a joke?"
  903. * Darte blinks about, posture loosening a bit. "... a... joke."
  904. <DM> *Sebastian, you run some internal memory digging, and finally, the name of that one douchebag comes back to you...
  905. <DM> *Bloodwind.
  906. <DM> *Before you're given a chance to mull this over, Margaret, your danger sense kicks in, and right afterwards, a Keaton comes rushing in, just as the other Keatons have finished up the Stalfos.
  907. <DM> [Keaton]: *out of breath* Incoming... incoming attack!
  908. * Memphis barks.
  909. <Memphis> We need to run!
  910. <Margaret> "Indeed."
  911. <DM> [Keaton]: They're gonna swarm the fortress! We gotta-
  912. * Darte 's head whips to the incoming Keaton. "... Masked Man's still closing in. Let's move."
  913. <Memphis> What's the situation outside?
  914. <Margaret> "Try to salvage any equipment we may need."
  915. <DM> *Before he can respond, a stinger strikes through his heart from behind. 8 creepy crawly legs emerge from around him, and the Skulltula reveals itself, sucking out the Keaton's soul as it plants the corpse into the ground.
  916. <Memphis> The drill... It should be at Thoughter's Fortress. I wrecked the tank because I thought my men were dead and I did not want the tank falling into the Masked Man's hands
  917. <DM> *You hear the pitter pattering of a whoooole lot more creepy crawly legs echoing from the darkness outside. And with your wallhax Spirit Vision, you can see, coming in from beyond them, a fair amount of larger attackers readying themselves, just outside the walls of Fort Reikon.
  918. <Margaret> "Do we have any potential escape plans?"
  919. <DM> *Hearing about the drill, and now the wrecked tank, you consider going for it... but that's in the opposite direction of your new boat, which is surely going to be under attack soon.
  920. <Memphis> We're going to have to break through the enemy somehow.
  921. <Margaret> "The Zola Ship may be under attack, if these enemies are anything to go by."
  922. <Margaret> (i doubt i can use the farore's wind thing)
  923. * Sebastian snaps out of his frozen state after hearing that familiar voice. ... He proceeds to exit, stage left towards the Zola Ship as quickly as his legs can move him.
  924. <DM> (depends, got another power source nearby?)
  925. <Memphis> Zolas? They wanna eat us and we attacked the river because of it.
  926. * Darte shakes himself, seeming unsteady as he resheathes his blade. "We move to the ship," he states firmly. "We were going to negotiate food, but that's no option right now."
  927. <DM> *Sebastian, you skippy dip on outta there, committing to a party split! Unless the rest of you folks follow behind him.
  928. <Margaret> "We were negotiating that prospect, yes."
  929. <Darte> "We'll vouch for you. For now, we gotta /move/."
  930. <Margaret> "Grab some alternate sources of food if necessary."
  931. <Memphis> Alright? Break through the front where you're headed?
  932. <DM> *Thanks to the hole in the wall caused by the Lava Baba from earlier, there's a hole out back, one which Sebastian is slipping himself out of right now.
  933. <Margaret> "Attempt to grab as much as we have discussed in our negotiations, if possible."
  934. <Margaret> "We should get moving as well."
  935. * Margaret follows Sebastian.
  936. <DM> [Keaton1]: Oi, Lady Memphis, is this place goin' down?
  937. * Darte nods, grimacing. "Guess that game's up. But if we want safe passage, grab food, and grab explosives. I can help carry, but we need that river passage open."
  938. * Darte scowls a bit. "/I/ need that river passage open."
  939. * Memphis barked "Affirmative. We can't defend the fortress in this state."
  940. <DM> [Keaton2]: Well, uhh, it's just that uhh...
  941. <DM> [Keaton3]: It's no secret Lady Memphis. We know 'bout the explosives.
  942. <DM> [Keaton4]: Methinks we could get a few things from here before we set the fortress to kablooey.
  943. <DM> (Margaret and Sebastian, to #zurpg2!)
  944. <Memphis> Alright, grab what we can and blow the fortress up
  945. <Memphis> (brb)
  946. <DM> [Keaton5]: Gonna need someone to hold 'em off for a bit first. Let's go!
  947. <DM> *At once, the Keaton scatter back into the fortress, proceeding to grab what they can. Some raid the Armory, some raid the food storages, and other places.
  948.  
  949. -=MEANWHILE=-
  950.  
  951. <DM> *Sebastian, you've slipped ahead in first place, with Margaret following from right behind you! Darte and Memphis don't seem to be following yet, but it may be a good thing to get ahead to the ship first.
  952. <Margaret> "We'll need to secure the ship as fast as possible, perhaps even transfer the Lightning Orb elsewhere."
  953. <DM> *Thanks to the fortress drawing all the attention, it seems there's no enemies nearby... yet.
  954. <DM> *You do see a good many in the distance gradually getting closer though. In the meantime, the path back to the Zola ship is clear... save for one Zola that's screaming for his life. The one that stood guard for you in front of the fortress.
  955. <Margaret> "We shall make haste."
  956. <DM> *He nearly collides with you two. Stopping at once, he draws his trident, about to attack, when he recognizes the Tax Collector forms...
  957. * Sebastian continues at top speed toward the ship.
  958. <DM> [Zola]: You, remember I do-
  959. <Margaret> "We should hurry, the ship may not be safe."
  960. <DM> *Annnd thanks to DM not wanting to deal with a three-way split, Margaret and Zola are pulled along by Sebastian's running speed, chatting as they go.
  961. * Margaret follows Sebastian.
  962. <Margaret> (oh, i was gonna send that already)
  963. <DM> [Zola]: Big bads here. Breathe fire!
  964. <Margaret> "Indeed."
  965. <Margaret> (what's the situation like?)
  966. <DM> *After a little while of scurrying, you finally reach the Zola Ship, which is already under attack. Two Aquamentus are firing barrages of Fireballs at it, not quite breaking through its shield.
  967. <DM> *They start to flap their wings, readying themselves for flight. Up on the deck, you can see the Zolas and Kokiris working together, struggling to move the front-facing cannon onto the side of the ship, and seeing if they can aim it at the Aquamentuses.
  968. <Margaret> "Sephiroth, you got anything to deal with those two?"
  969. <DM> *You look around for Sephiroth, but all you see is a golden-haired pretty boy.
  970. <DM> *Round 1, go!
  971. <Margaret> (well, i mean, we aren't *near* the Keaton)
  972. <Margaret> (and i am pretty sure i would at least still know who is who)

  1050. <DM> *You hear Mido call out from the ship.

  1058. <Sebastian> (Back)
  1059. <DM> *With the Lightning Orb hooked up properly to the Mega Cannon, they fire it! Lightning sparks and crackles from within the cannon, before finally launching a megalith of hyperbeams at both the down Aquamentus, dealing...

  1063. <DM> *326 damage! Both the Aquamentuses become engulfed by the overwhelming force, their brains fatfrying from the electric overload! The ground around them just vaporizes, causing them to fall into a pit. Although their bodies somehow survived that, there's nothing left really left of those dragons.
  1064. <Margaret> (actually, maybe not)
  1065. <DM> [Mido]: Holy crap, IT WORKED! THE SHIP DIDN'T EXPLODE! WE'RE GENIUSES!
  1066. <DM> *Right as he says that, the Lightning Orb depowers, and the shield goes down.

  1068. <DM> *Whelp, with no other enemies around, you guys are able to board the ship.

  1075. <DM> (you're in the ship right in front of the roadblock- I mean riverblock)
  1076. <Margaret> (how big is the roadblock)
  1077. <Margaret> (or riverblock)
  1078. * Margaret proceeds to explain the current situation to the rest of the group.
  1079. <DM> *Looking in front of you, you think that maaaaaaybe if Mido hadn't turned the cannon towards the Aquamentuses, it may actually be able to vaporize things in a few shots. Though that'd still take a while to charge it several times over.
  1080. <DM> [Mido]: Exposition?! But how? I thought only Kirran wielded that power!
  1081. <DM> *He suddenly shakes his head in confusion.
  1082. * Sebastian kicks DM out the window.
  1083. * You have been kicked from #zurpg2 by Sebastian (You have been kicked out the window and you landed in my septic tank! «20,402»)
  1084. <DM> [Mido]: ... I don't know what came over me all of a sudden. Who the heck even is Kirran?
  1085. * Margaret ponders on the thought of placing some unactivated explosives around the riverblock.
  1086. <DM> [Mido]: Well uhh... in my defense, the dragons were gonna destroy the ship, so uhhh...
  1087. <DM> [Mido]: Thanks for the save!
  1088. <Margaret> "How long do you think it'd take for the Orb to go back online?"
  1089. <DM> [Mido]: Well, hard to say, I'd say-
  1090. <DM> [Saria]: I could do it right now.
  1091. <DM> *Having finally recovered from earlier, the Forest Sage steps on up, promptly kicking Mido out of the leader position.
  1092. <DM> [Mido]: What? But how?
  1093. <DM> *Saria looks back at the forest with a bittersweet gaze, then back at you all.
  1094. <DM> [Saria]: If I undo the spell I ran earlier... I can repower the Lightning Orb. Not only that, but Farore's Wind, amplified by this, would get us out of here.
  1095. <Margaret> "Hmm... I see... Although I suppose we should wait until Darte and the others get back."
  1096. <DM> [Mido]: .. Wait... Undo the spell? But Saria, that... that would mean the whole forest goes down! We'd have no home!
  1097. <DM> [Saria]: It doesn't matter if we're dead, Mido.
  1098. <DM> [Saria]: To be honest, I'd rather we don't do that. Do either of you have any other ideas?
  1099. <Margaret> "I say we hold off on undoing the spell, see if the others heading over here have any other ideas."
  1100. <Margaret> "We should only undo the spell if it is absolutely necessary."
  1101. <DM> *She nods back at you.
  1102. <DM> [Saria]: Alright. Let's get ready for a wave of attacks then, surely-
  1103. <DM> *Just then, the entire earth shakes, as does the boat.
  1104.  
  1105. -=MEANWHILE=-
  1106.  
  1107. <DM> *Meanwhile though, a Gohma has made its way into the garage. It stares you down, Darte, and then Memphis, using its single eye to pick and choose which it wants to feast on first.
  1108. <Memphis> Alright. Its time to hold our position!
  1109. * Darte glares at the Gohma. "We've had a couple of you for snacks already. You wanna test your luck?"
  1110. <Memphis> (What's at the front?)
  1111. <DM> *Memphis, you see about 5 Skulltulas crawl their way towards the east end of the fort, and another 5 try heading down the stairs. The Gohma, with its quick sideways movement, tracks your eyes, covering wherever you're looking as it strafes back and forth.
  1112. <Memphis> (There's no SKulltula profiles)
  1113. <Memphis> (So it's strafing Memphis?)
  1114. * Darte growls, "If only I had the Golden Armor on. Memphis, know how to use a blade?"
  1115. <DM> (Yeah I got no skulltula profiles, sorry)
  1116. <Memphis> I can't wield a blade, but I've got plenty of bombs and explosions!

  1213. <DM> *Darte, you feel odd, being in a spiritual form as if you're already dead, yet not, as you are wielding yourself, split between physical and spiritual forms.
  1214. <DM> *With your own spiritual energy flowing into the sword, you feel a greater power coming off of it - off of you, technically - than you ever have before.
  1215. <DM> *Would you like to shank the Gohma?
  1216. <Darte> (Sorry, grabbed water, and spotted baby gecko on door. Had to take picture)
  1217. <DM> (DEX?!)
  1218. <Darte> (I TOLD YOU HE'S INFILTRATING)
  1219. * Darte would absolutely love to shank! The! Gohma!
  1220. <DM> *You suddenly get a flash of Dex in your mind, and instead of just shanking the Gohma, you decide, since it's stunned and just displaying that singular eye for all to see...
  1221. <DM> *You do a spiritually enhanced EYEGOUGE!
  1222. <DM> (I don't remember what the roll is, but between all the bonuses and other stuff uhh.... Roll Courage + 25 dice, and then add 25 damage)
  1223. <Margaret> (i think darte went haywire)
  1224. <Darte> $74d10
  1225. <Navi> Darte: You rolled 74 Dice with 10 Sides. Total: 391. Successes: 44.
  1226. * Darte re-rolls that pithy thing
  1227. <Darte> $74d10
  1228. <Navi> Darte: You rolled 74 Dice with 10 Sides. Total: 423. Successes: 58.
  1229. <Darte> (Much better)
  1230. <DM> $calc 58 + 25
  1231. <Kefka> 58 + 25 = 83
  1232. <DM> $calc 83 * 2
  1233. <Kefka> 83 * 2 = 166
  1234. <DM> (yeah, combined with the previous damage, that's more than enough)
  1235. <DM> *You rip into the Gohma, gouging its singular eye out, and with your power-infused sword inside of the great beast, you release its energies all at once!
  1236. <DM> *The oversized spidercrab explodes in a single burst of energy, splaying its spiderguts everywhere! Except on you, Darte, since you're now in a spiritual form.
  1237. <DM> *At last, you exit your Force Ghost state and return to normal, the sword you were wielding reverting back to you. You're... not sure how that works entirely.
  1238. <Darte> (oh you know, hat and clogs and a strange cane...)
  1239. <DM> (Indeed!)
  1240. * Darte blinks harder as he rematerializes. "This has been... a very, very long day."
  1241. <DM> *The remainder of the Keaton return from their fortress scatter, and you hear more crawly legs from the shadows making their way in.
  1242. * Memphis wipes the spider crab guts off her fur and looks back to the Keaton with their supplies
  1243. * Darte turns to Memphis. "Right. We gotta /MOVE/."
  1244. <Memphis> Alright
  1245. * Memphis barks
  1246. <Memphis> "Let's move it!."
  1247. <DM> *You all kindly run the heck out of there. But not before one of the Keatons hands Memphis a remote.
  1248. <DM> [Keaton1]: Found it! Sorry, I had to snoop through your office. But I think if you press this button here-
  1249. <DM> *He shows you by pressing the button.
  1250. <DM> [Keaton1]: .......
  1251. <DM> [Keaton1]: Whoops.
  1252. * Memphis barked again, dashing out!
  1253. <Memphis> Get out of here!
  1254. * Memphis dashes out through the back where Sebastian and Margaret went
  1255. * Darte follows her the heck out.
  1256. <DM> *The Keatons proceed to scramble out of the back of the fort, following you two out. You hear the fort behind you rumble quite violently.
  1257. <DM> *You get somewhat away from the fort when the whole earth shakes, tumbling you all to the ground.
  1258. <Memphis> (cue loading screen)
  1259. <DM> *From behind you, a massive cascade of explosions goes off, toppling Fort Reikon in on itself and crushing everything inside of it to nothing and sending a wave of dust outwards.
  1260. <DM> [Keaton1]: Huh. That's it?
  1261. <DM> [Keaton2]: Whaddya mean that's it, THE WHOLE FORTRESS IS GONE!
  1262. <DM> [Keaton1]: No, it's just, I could've sworn we planted more explosives in the ground-
  1263. * Darte squints. "Well, there goes studio 8."
  1264. * Sebastian face-palms.
  1265. <Memphis> I doubt this is what Lady Memphis had in mind, but I just so had to do this
  1266. <DM> (what the 3rd person?)
  1267. <DM> *Apparently, Mad Lady Memphis has gone fully Mad.
  1268. <Memphis> *Stella
  1269. <DM> *His sentence is on cue, and at once, there's a followup explosion. The ground right behind you all erupts into flames, launching you all away on a behemoth of a supernova explosion!
  1270. <DM> *You all ride the wave, all the way back to the Zola Ship! There, a surprised Mido, shocked Zolas, a straight-faced Margaret, and a tea-sipping Sebastian turn to see all you kerplunk into the ship, with the shockwave finishing things off with a-
