  1. <DM> *LAST TIME ON DRAGON BALL ZURPG!
  2. <DM> *You turned an island into a rocket island to get to Zant. From there, you chatted it out with him, he took Zuph as a hostage, and combined with some Twilightrobes, you are now on a quest to go get Midna's half of the Fused Shadow. Or, well.. find a counter to the Twilightrobes. Whichever you decide to go with.
  3. <DM> -=SESSION START=-
  4. <DM> *Hal, Darte, and Kirran, the three of you find yourselves tossed into a familiar glass cage. You recall it being the same prison cell you were initially tossed in at the start of this quest, at the bottom of the Twilight Palace.
  5. <DM> *Whichever one of you that caught the stone that Zant tossed at you, you hear his voice through it...
  6. <DM> [Zant]: Oh, home sweet home. Thanks to one of you removing that Magic Barrier in that one seemingly empty room, I'm able to teleport you folks there. Not sure who did it exactly...
  7. * Hal facepalms, rembering that Dex was the one who did that.
  8. <DM> [Zant]: Now, if you'd please, just take that stone, one of you, and press it into the glass.
  9. * Darte wonders if that's like opening the toilet trap.
  10. * Darte wonders what that would make us.
  11. <DM> (......)
  12. * Hal picks up the stone and presses it into the glass.
  13. * Darte crosses his arms. "What, gonna melt through it or something?"
  14. <DM> *Hal, you press the stone into the glass, but instead of the stone going into the glass, it.... embeds into your hand. There's a sharp pain, then a slight paralysis before your hand returns to normal.
  15. <Hal> !!!
  16. <DM> *Looking down at your hand, it now has Twili lines coursing through it.
  17. <Kirran> Well, that's not good.
  18. <DM> *Also, each time Zant speaks through it, you feel a slight vibration throughout your body.
  19. <Kirran> Hal's been possessed. Exorcise him with fire.
  20. <DM> [Zant]: Good, good, now I can properly observe you folks. Now, just press your hand into the glass, and let the lines align with the ones in the glass wall.
  21. <DM> [Zant]: And don't try to remove the stone, you'd have better luck trying to remove your own heart and survive. It'll melt down eventually anyways, so relax, it's not permanent.
  22. * Hal presses his hand into the glass and let the lines align with the ones in the glass wall.
  23. * Darte glares harder at the stone. "That thing better not be a tumor."
  24. <DM> At the rate you're dying, you might as well be a walking tumor.
  25. <DM> *There's a pause, then the lines finally align. Your hand ends up just passing right through the glass wall, and then the wall itself seems to disintegrate, creating a hole in the prison wall and out to the hallway.
  26. <DM> *The shadows that wandered in with start bouncing between your shadows, bathing in the light that emanates freely from the walls of the Twilight Palace.
  27. <DM> [Shadow1]: Ah, how good it feels to be in the light!
  28. <DM> [Shadow2]: Haven't had this much light since the Twilight Realm almost exploded, kee-hee-hee!
  29. <DM> *At that point, Raine slips away, fleeing from her captor, Lord Kirran as the shadows dance between you all.
  30. <DM> *You can't see it, but she winks back at you folks, carrying the note that Kirran slipped her earlier.
  31. <DM> [Zant]: Now, what are you folks waiting for? The path to Midna should be quite clear now.
  32. <Kirran> Anyone seen Dex?
  33. <Hal> Dex has gone off to sneak into the interloper base.
  34. <Kirran> Oh yeah, I forgot he unlocked the alternate path.
  35. <Hal> We should get a move on.
  36. <Darte> "Silly lizard and his bonus stages."
  37. <DM> *que Super Mario World bonus stage music...... err, for Dex
  38. <DM> *cue
  39. <Darte> (Probably DKC2 tbh)
  40. <DM> (righto)
  41. * Kirran makes a pitstop over by the cell of Faron.
  42. <DM> *Faron looks over to you, waving his monkey tail at you.
  43. <DM> *He looks joyful, then... perplexed.
  44. <DM> [Faron]: Wait, what are you all doing back here?
  45. * Darte makes his eyes as wide as he can, making small, sharp jerks towards Hal's hand.
  46. <Kirran> Would you believe me if I said we're going in a big loop.
  47. <DM> *Faron looks at Kirran, then at Darte, then at Hal, then at Hal's hand, then back to Kirran.
  48. <DM> [Faron]: I... see. Any luck on the crystals?
  49. <Kirran> A little. Kinda hit a hitch, so we came back here to see if we could fix it.
  50. <DM> [Faron]: Very well. Anything I can assist with..... well..... knowledge-wise?
  51. <Kirran> Nah, we're keeping our shadows close on this one.
  52. * Kirran taps the eye of truth on his face.
  53. <Darte> Uhmm. We're really... wizzing about.
  54. <DM> [Faron]: Very well. Good luck with that.
  55. <Darte> You could even say we're face-ing the darkness pretty regularly right now.
  56. <DM> [Shadow1]: *whispering* Come on, get a move on, stop punning on us.
  57. <DM> [Shadow2]: *snickering* Hee-hee, they're good puns though! Wish we could eat them, kee-hee-hee!
  58. <DM> *Faron seems to not have heard the Shadows speaking....... that or he's ignoring them. You're not entirely sure.
  59. * Darte 's eyes bulge a bit as he tries to get through to Faron, but this is one monkey that doesn't seem to enjoy monkeying around.
  60. <DM> .......
  61. <DM> $1d5
  62. <Navi> DM: You rolled 1 Die with 5 Sides. Result: 1.
  63. * Kirran facepalms
  64. <DM> *Darte, you suddenly trip over an inconveniently placed rock and hit your head lightly, suffering 1 Neutral Damage.
  65. * Darte grumples and moves along. "Some help you are."
  66. <Darte> 18h12m
  67. * Hal looks towards the elevator.
  68. <DM> *The elevator dings in response.
  69. <Kirran> O-o
  70. <Hal> There's our ride.
  71. <DM> *The doors open.
  72. <DM> *There is also a note plastered towards the top end of the elevator in very tiny writing.
  73. * Darte sighs and paces onto the elevator, craning his nose up to peer at the scribbles.
  74. * Kirran sends the elevator up with only Darte in it
  75. <DM> *You take a nice look, and it seems to read:
  76. <DM> [Note]: I'll be at the library shortly. Just you folks wait, Raine is here to save the day with Medlora knowledge in tow!
  77. <Kirran> Ah HA! Take that elevator. You're not fooling me again.
  78. <DM> *The note seems to be taking into account that the shadows can't quite see up there, as they are on the ground.
  79. * Darte reaches up to pluck off the note as if he's scrubbing the ceiling. "I think I left some blood in here from earlier. Messy me."
  80. * Kirran does not trust the elevator in the least.
  81. <DM> *Darte, you actually happen to notice, since you were sent up there by yourself first..... there is not a face in your shadow.
  82. <DM> [Shadow1]: Hey, what'd you do that for?!
  83. <Kirran> Hey! You haven't seen what these things can do to the unsuspecting.
  84. <DM> [Shadow2]: He'd better come back down, or else I'll tell Zanty to eat Zuphy's shadow, kee-hee-hee!
  85. <Kirran> They've killed the fishman. Twice.
  86. <Kirran> It's a very crafty trap, I think.
  87. * Kirran casually leans up against the button mechanism so the elevator won't come down right away.
  88. * Darte is just going up forever apparently.
  89. <Kirran> We need to figure out how to get on this thing without getting killed.
  90. * Hal casually nods
  91. <Kirran> Be a real short mission otherwise.
  92. <DM> *Darte, you reach the top, and the doors open and the elevator dings. Do you roll on back down, or do you decide to go wandering for a bit?
  93. * Darte leaves the elevator, and considers running down the hall to Midna ASAP.
  94. <DM> [Shadow1]: Grr.
  95. * Darte looks at the note again. Where was Medlora...?
  96. <DM> *You last recall the library. You also last recall she might be still ticked at you for yoinking her book.
  97. <Hal> Knowing Darte he's going to find a way to get himself killed.
  98. * Darte muses. "Let me see. Down this hallway, past the... solsplosion zone, and then right past that..."
  99. * Darte proceeds off on his little jaunt. This'll teach them to be all pally with crazy exiles.
  100. <DM> *Darte, are you headed down to the library?
  101. <Darte> Yorp
  102. <DM> *Oh dear.
  103. <DM> *Kirran, after delaying the button, you eventually accidentally press the button. The elevator comes on down.
  104. <DM> *It opens, revealing a lack of Darte inside.
  105. <Hal> See, Darte died.
  106. <DM> [Shadow1]: ......
  107. <DM> [Shadow2]: ........
  108. <DM> [Shadow1]: Shouldn't there be... blood?
  109. <Hal> I don't know where his corpse is.
  110. <Hal> The blood's probably up in the hatch above.
  111. * Hal looks into the elevator searching for what could have killed him.
  112. * DM reminds Hal of Illusion of Creation.
  113. <DM> (how you use it to sneak it by them is on you)
  114. * Hal discreetly creates illusions of bloodstains on the hatch
  115. <Hal> (of Darte's blood of course)
  116. <Hal> (Can Wizzrobes smell too?)
  117. <DM> [Shadow1]: Well, where's the bloodstains?
  118. * Hal points up to the hatch in the elevator, where the illusions have been casted.
  119. <Darte> (I'm half-surprised it doesn't smell like strawberries in here.)
  120. <DM> [Shadow2]: Smells like.... wait, what's smell?
  121. <DM> *The blood of a Zora drips down onto the shadows.
  122. <DM> [Shadow1]: Gah, there's blue stuff in my shadow!
  123. <DM> [Shadow2]: This elevator IS dangerous! Dangit Zant!
  124. * Hal nods.
  125. <Kirran> And you don't even want to know what happens if you fall through the floor.
  126. <DM> [Shadow1]: Wait, we're shadows. They're not.
  127. <DM> [Shadow2]: Hee-hee-hee, that means..... yoooooou're the ones that have to worry, not us, kee-hee-hee!
  128. <Kirran> Notice how the body's gone though? It gets dumped out the bottom. And then where would you be?
  129. <Kirran> In a realm beyond time and space.
  130. <Kirran> I've been there. It's not fun.
  131. <DM> [Shadow1]: And so would you. And if you came back, so can we.
  132. <DM> *Zant's voice kicks through.
  133. <Kirran> Except for this one guy, who's very reluctant of the plot.
  134. <DM> [Zant]: Are you really getting stalled by an elevator? Get a move on, or I'm killing Zuph.
  135. <Hal> Well, looks like we have no choice.
  136. <Hal> Brave the elevator.
  137. <Hal> Lets step aboard.
  138. <Kirran> I'll just go last thanks. That way if it eats you, someone survives.
  139. * Hal steps into the elevator and casts an illusion of feeling on himself, so he feels like he has gravitated to the floor. He then casts an illusion of feeling on the elevator to make it feel as if it is going much faster than it is actually going and to make it feel as if the shadows have physical form.
  140. * DM high-fives Hal.
  141. <DM> *Thanks to having the Spirit Vision to pinpoint the Twilightrobes, you are able to convincingly pull this off. Kirran, you get in and are unaffected by such trickery, though you revel in the thought that Twilightrobes are feeling it.
  142. <DM> *After five minutes up the elevator of doom- err not that long, but what feels like it, you reach the top.
  143. <DM> [Shadow1]: ......... woooooooaaaaaaaaaah. They're not kidding.
  144. <Hal> Told ya
  145. <DM> [Shadow2]: I am never taking that elevator again in my life.
  146. <DM> *The elevator dings, and the door opens.
  147. * Kirran looks extremely shaken and stumbles out onto the floor.
  148. <Kirran> Are we there yet?
  149. <Hal> Looks like we are.
  150. * Kirran falls over.
  151. <Kirran> Gonna need a minute. Haven't been that close to death since...I don't even remember when
  152. * Hal slowly saunters out of the elevator, continuing to look like he is gravited to the floor.
  153. <DM> *By the time you all recover, Darte comes back, with a SAD WALK, feeling all dejected.
  154. <Hal> Looks like Darte revived for the umpteenth time.
  155. <Kirran> Was it raining in Hell Darte?
  156. * Darte shoots daggers behind his glasses.
  157. <Kirran> $1d3
  158. <Navi> Kirran: You rolled 1 Die with 3 Sides. Result: 2.
  159. <Hal> Do we need to keep a fairy circling around you constantly?
  160. * Kirran does not dodge the daggers.
  161. * Darte sighs. "Right, let's keep moving. Nothing down that path but a locked door."
  162. <DM> [Shadow1]: Oh, the blue one is back.
  163. <DM> *Shadow2 bounces over to Darte's shadow.
  164. <DM> [Shadow2]: ..... I'll be honest, I don't want to be in this shadow. It smells of sadness.
  165. <DM> [Shadow1]: But, we can't smell.
  166. <DM> [Shadow2]: I know.
  167. * Hal looks around to the shadows
  168. * Hal looks at which faces have shadows
  169. <Hal> *shadows have faces
  170. <DM> *One is in Kirran's shadow, the other is in Darte's shadow. In spirit vision, you can see teardrops of soul dripping down Shadow2 as it experiences Darte's SAD WALK shadow.
  171. * Darte 's slouch makes for a nice, broad shadow to puddle in.
  172. <DM> *You hear Zant's voice sneak through the stone, but it just seems to be him ranting....
  173. <DM> [Zant]: ..... no. No, you can't have that one. The Twili need it. I need it.
  174. <DM> *The voice stops.
  175. * Hal looks around and casts an Illusion of Creation to generate the illusion of a locked door where the door to the council is.
  176. * Darte squints at Hal again, rather worried that he might be taking 'talk to the hand' a bit literally.
  177. <DM> [Shadow1]: Now, move along. To the Twilight Council.
  178. <DM> [Shadow2]: Yes, yes! A Queen's shadow, that sounds tasty, kee-hee-hee!
  179. * Hal also puts an illusion of feeling on the door.
  180. <Hal> *make it feel as if it is really locked*
  181. <DM> *Hal, right after placing that illusion, you see a Twili Guard return to the door. He turns to you, puzzled.
  182. <DM> [Twili]: Umm, weren't you all with Zuph getting crystals?
  183. <DM> [Shadow1]: *whispers* Tell him of our presence, and I'll eat his shadow.
  184. <DM> [Shadow2]: *whispers* Twould be a nice appetizer, yes yes!
  185. <Kirran> Zuph sent us back here to get some more of that blue stuff.
  186. * Darte eyes the guard, tapping his foot a little. "There was a _lot_ more crystal than expected."
  187. <DM> [Twili]: Umm... blue stuff?
  188. <DM> [Twili]: Does it have anything to do with your dark-skinned party member that came in here a short while ago?
  189. <Kirran> Dark skin...You mean Corsava?
  190. <DM> [Twili]: Yeah, that one.
  191. <DM> [Twili]: Entrance guards said she already had some crystals, but just a few.
  192. * Kirran is nonplussed about this bit of news.
  193. <Darte> "Well, Zuph doesn't want to make the dangerous trek back out another time, so he's stocking up now, I guess."
  194. <DM> [Twili]: Ooookay.
  195. <DM> [Shadow1]: *whispers* Stop stalling and get in there.
  196. <Kirran> He's got this crazy blue stuff that cuts through everything.
  197. <DM> [Twili]: Oooooh, yeah, the goop, I know what you mean!
  198. <DM> [Twili]: That's some scaaaary stuff! Medlora almost melted her hand off on that stuff, it was pretty funny to see her all flustered, teehee!
  199. <Kirran> So he said that the door was locked, and that Xanas has the key, because he's the only one Zuph trusts to guard something that dangerous.
  200. <DM> [Twili]: Uhh, afraid Xanas is out still. They're having a hard time at the Sol Fountain.
  201. <DM> oh, misinterpreted, you said that to the shadows, didn't you
  202. <Kirran> (??)
  203. <DM> (or not, nvm)
  204. <DM> (carry on)
  205. <Kirran> What's going on with that?
  206. <DM> *He shakes his head, the Sol Orb on his head bouncing back and forth a bit.
  207. <DM> [Twili]: Ehh, it's a stalemate. All the lead Interlopers except Dark Link have appeared. They're really going all in over there. We barely have any guards left here at the palace. Think it's just me at the entrance guards, really...
  208. <DM> *me and the
  209. <Kirran> I take it everyone is out there at the moment?
  210. <Darte> ".... and Medlora, but I get the feeling she never leaves her book palace."
  211. <DM> [Twili]: Oh no, she's always cooped up in the library. Only time she's ever gone out is with Zuph. Kind of surprised she didn't go with you guys this time.
  212. <Kirran> Maybe she's got a key?
  213. * Darte seems a little more crestfallen at that, for some reason. "Not that we'll be able to so much as talk to her without all her books intact."
  214. * Kirran is also not entirely enthusiastic about this direction either.
  215. <DM> [Shadow2]: Hurry up, the shadowy stomach is getting empty!
  216. * Darte growls. "Well, he wouldn't have sent us back without a way to get in. He knew Xanas was out defending, didn't he?"
  217. <Hal> (could an illusion transmit messages to anyone else in close proximity?)
  218. <DM> (sure)
  219. * Hal transmits the small message to Kirran "tasty shadows" via illusion
  220. <DM> [Shadow1]: Fine, go where you need to go to get that key!
  221. <Kirran> (what was that Noise?)
  222. <DM> [Shadow2]: Stall us one more time, and I'm eating that Twili's shadow!
  223. <Kirran> (Just my imagination...)
  224. <DM> [Shadow1]: Hunger, HUNGER!
  225. <Hal> (Did the Wizzrobes hear my transmitted message?)
  226. <DM> (nope)
  227. <DM> [Shadow1]: So, where's the key?
  228. * Darte ponders. "Well, this is working out well. We could always swing by to see if he left it unlocked by chance."
  229. <DM> *Zant pipes up after a long silence.
  230. <DM> [Zant]: How are you still in the hallway?! Come on, just..... get through that door! You're right darn there!
  231. <Kirran> It's locked
  232. * Darte walks over to the door and knocks on it.
  233. <DM> [Zant]: Locked?! Then break it down! There's barely any guards in the palace right now!
  234. <DM> *The Twili Guard looks over at you.
  235. <DM> [Twili]: Uhh, who are you all talking to?
  236. <DM> *You see him slowly moving towards his Gravity Slingshot....
  237. <Kirran> We've got Zuph on long-distance comms. He's telling us to go look for the key, so we're gonna go do that.
  238. * Darte eyes the guard and nods slowly.
  239. <DM> [Twili]: Uh-huh. Uhh.... key is...... his shop is locked, so his backup is probably with Medlora.
  240. * Kirran frowns
  241. <Kirran> Might as well get going then.
  242. <Hal> Alright.
  243. <DM> [Zant]: Wait, where are you going?
  244. <Kirran> To get the key. Don't you know how quests work?
  245. <Kirran> Besides, blowing up that door would take an explosion big enough to draw half the castle back over here.
  246. <Kirran> Not exactly subtle.
  247. * Kirran is wandering away towards the library.
  248. <DM> [Zant]: Very well. Be quick.
  249. * Darte follows, this time keeping Kirran between himself and the door.
  250. * Kirran jots a quick note in Hylian.
  251. <DM> *You all head towards the library, with the two shadows in tow.
  252. * Hal follows Kirran
  253. <DM> [Shadow1]: Maybe we can eat this librarian's shadow?
  254. <DM> [Shadow2]: Tee-hee, more snacks for us, kee-hee-hee!
  255. <DM> *You reach the double doors. They are nice and closed. Do you knock?
  256. * Darte now stares daggers at the shadows. "Do that and I'm making sure you never see the... shadow of day again."
  257. <DM> .................
  258. <Kirran> Hey Medlora. I got your book back!
  259. * Kirran has surreptitiously attached the note to the outer cover of the book.
  260. <DM> *The doors open, just slightly enough to be ajar.
  261. <DM> *A reeeeeaaaally disgruntled Medlora pokes her head through.
  262. <DM> [Medlora]: ...... book?
  263. * Darte gives a sheepish wave from behind Kirran.
  264. * Kirran holds up the book with the note facing her for her to read.
  265. <DM> [Medlora]: .....
  266. <DM> *She reads the note, then looks back at you.
  267. <DM> [Medlora]: ... excuse me for just a moment.
  268. <DM> *She swipes the book from you, then closes the door.
  269. <Kirran> I've got a bad feeling about this.
  270. <Hal> Same.
  271. * Darte just slumps even lower.
  272. <DM> *You hear some muffled talking through the doors. There's definitely someone in there other than Medlora, but you can't make out any of the words.
  273. <DM> *Actually, it sounds like two more other than Medlora....
  274. * Hal sees if he can lock onto their souls.
  275. * Darte considers pulling out his Spirit Gem. Why hadn't he thought of this before?
  276. <DM> *Using Spirit Vision, you see... the souls of Medlora...... Corsava....... and you're 99% certain that last one is Zant.
  277. <Hal> O.o
  278. <DM> *Hal, you see the soul of Zant vanish, then reappear, then vanish again, several times in rapid succession.
  279. <DM> *It's actually similar to what Zuph does....
  280. * Kirran peeks his head in through the door all sneaky like.
  281. <DM> *The door is nice and closed shut. You end up knocking your head against the door, causing a light knock.
  282. <Darte> "... Hear anything?"
  283. <DM> *You hear a Zant talking....
  284. <DM> [Zant]: Oh please, between my arsenal and my teleportation, I don't think I have much to fear. I really doubt you'll ever hit me. Now, why play with me when we can join hands, fight together, for the greatest justice?
  285. <Kirran> (so the door is locked, you're saying?)
  286. <DM> (it would appear so)
  287. <DM> (though..... you do recall the route from the armory......)
  288. <DM> [Zant]: Patience? PATIENCE?! I'VE BEEN WAITING 20 LONG YEARS! I WON'T HAVE MUCH MORE PATIENCE!
  289. <Hal> (Yes)
  290. <Kirran> (Where are the wizzrobes at the moment?)
  291. <Darte> (I believe my shadow and Hal's)
  292. <DM> *In Kirran's and Darte's shadows.
  293. <Darte> (not-Hal, oops)
  294. <DM> *You folks hear a click from the door.
  295. * Darte pricks up at this, looking to Kirran.
  296. * Hal looks to see where the souls are now
  297. * Kirran shrugs. Time to do what Dex would do I suppose.
  298. <DM> *Right then, the doors start to open.
  299. <DM> *The doors open, and across the other side of the room, you see a pile of books forming a protective guard. Hal, with your sight, you can see Medlora-chan hiding inside. You also see Corsava to the side behind the door, and one Golden-Armored Zant carrying a white cobra-handled claymore looking at you, rather maniacal already.
  300. * Kirran is still wearing his stone mask at the moment, by the by.
  301. <DM> [Zant]: ...... seriously? I ask you to kindly, and QUITE kindly, go get me my MASK, and alllll you do is GET OVER HERE?!
  302. <Corsava> "Your timing is rather interesting, the situation was just verging on becoming untenable."
  303. <DM> *Indeed. He only sees Darte and Hal.
  304. <Corsava> *pauses* "Untennible?"
  305. <Corsava> "I think it is untenable"
  306. <DM> $google untenable
  307. <Hal> $google Kefka
  308. <Darte> $kefka google
  309. * Kefka uses Blizzard on Darte, who takes 2,067 damage!
  310. <Darte> ...
  311. <Kirran> (Well played!)
  312. <DM> *Darte spontaneously explodes then rematerializes, feeling a tad frosty. Yes, I'm counting that as a death.
  313. <DM> [Zant]: You all.... I've just had to dealt with the most UNREASONABLE librarian today!
  314. * Kirran starts queueing up a dark epiphany.
  315. <Darte> (Figured it would. It's what I get for inviting Kefka.)
  316. <DM> *He points the blade at you all. Kirran, you actually feel something...... somewhat familiar. Almost like...... a Sage's power...... from within the blade.
  317. <DM> *Actually, Darte you feel it too, with your Water Medallion.
  318. <DM> *The Medallion buzzes lightly.
  319. * Darte rises from his slump at that. The daggers are refocused again, now glaring at Zant, and he stands between Medlora's book fortress and the golden-armored madman.
  320. <DM> *Zant flashes away. He then appears behind you, Darte.
  321. <DM> [Zant]: Oh, are you trying to get behind ME?!
  322. <Corsava> "Oh my, what a shocking and unexpected- How did you forget he can do that now?"
  323. * Darte tries to turn around. "Between, and that's some blade you've got there."
  324. <DM> *Hal, you're feeling a tad..... flared. Like something's got more madness around here than usual.
  325. <DM> *You're not sure where it's coming from.
  326. <DM> [Zant]: Why yes, I believe this blade came from your world! Its name... the Warlock Blade, I believe!
  327. <DM> *He gets close to your ear, Darte.
  328. <DM> [Zant]: Would you like to try it?
  329. <DM> *He suddenly zips away, his laughter echoing around the room repeatedly.
  330. <Corsava> It's not quite as shameful as the Wedlock Blade, but still bad.
  331. * Hal felt a wave of knowledge resurface in his brain.
  332. * Darte snarls at him. "You'll have to taste me first!"
  333. * DM high-fives Corsava then considers following up with pun damage...
  334. * Darte didn't think his phrasing through.
  335. <Hal> (oh boy...)
  336. <DM> *Oh boy, Darte isn't just hitting on Medlora, he's hitting on Zant now.
  337. <DM> *As Zant bounces around, he ends up knocking some books over....
  338. <DM> *Suddenly, one of the books hits back.
  339. <DM> *Then another.
  340. <DM> [Zant]: What in the f-?
  341. <DM> *You all hear Medlora's voice, reeeeaaaaally angry.
  342. <DM> [Medlora]: Stop. Messing. Up. My. Library.
  343. <DM> *Suddenly, every single book in the library cascades onto Zant. There's a flash of golden light as Zant reappears next to Darte, holding his blade up to his neck.
  344. <DM> [Zant]: Her shadow, go, my wizards!
  345. * Kirran teleports behind Zant and cuts off his armor.
  346. <DM> *Hal, you see the Twilightrobes try to bounce shadows over to where Medlora is.
  347. * Darte thinks maybe now is a good time to go swordfish.
  348. <Corsava> *says aloud* Oh no, he said to go after my shadow!
  349. <DM> [Shadow1]: Which her?!
  350. <DM> [Zant]: The libr-
  351. <DM> *Kirran, right as your blade hits the armor, he flashes out, zipping away.
  352. <DM> *He reappears on top of one of the tall bookshelves.
  353. * Kirran does not move.
  354. <DM> [Zant]: Well, Medlora, now's your chance! Are you willing to help me? I appear to have the high ground!
  355. <Corsava> "Oh...Kirranakin, don't try it."
  356. * Darte shakes his head. "I've quadrupled my flip power!"
  357. <Kirran> (Is Zant looking in my general direction?)
  358. <Corsava> "Quadrice the flip, quadruple the...trip?"
  359. <DM> *With the mention of Medlora's name, the two shadows try to bounce over to Medlora's shadow. She is noticeably backing further and further away from the shadows.
  360. <DM> (nope)
  361. <DM> [Medlora]: I'd appreciate some help against this madman, guys...
  362. <Corsava> *rolls over between Medlora and the shadows, knowing cute librarians love the dashing hero archetype*
  363. * Kirran teleports behind Zant and slips a bomb in his pocket.
  364. <DM> *Zant continues to laugh maniacally, not noticing Kirran at all.
  365. * Hal casts a Veil of Darkness on the room, hoping to consume the room in darkness.
  366. <DM> [Medlora]: Aww, my dashing Gerudo knight, rushing in to save me!
  367. * Kirran tries to cut his armor off again. (The bomb was lit, by the way.)
  368. <DM> *Kirran, you strike, and again, Zant disappears..... though this time, when he reappears, there's an explosion in his pants.
  369. <DM> *The spectral fires illuminating the room go out for a bit as darkness overtakes the room.
  370. <DM> *Hal, looking around in spirit form, you see the two Twilightrobes directly...... and something slightly off.
  371. <Corsava> *grins and draws her trident, happy to be of service to Medlora*
  372. <DM> *Where Medlora is, there's another soul, a very tiny one, but fluctuating in a bipolar manner, albeit a bit toned down.
  373. <Corsava> I'll protect you, ma'am.
  374. <Corsava> *wait no not the trident, the sword. So I can use my shield too. duh. That's much protectier*
  375. * Darte casts a Bio-Electric Field around Medlora.
  376. <DM> *Also, all of you start hearing voices in your head. Why, it sounds like..... incomprehensible whispers. Like Interloper voices....
  377. <Darte> 18h8m
  378. <DM> *A moment later, the darkness lifts, and the whispers stop completely.
  379. * Hal fires an Overwhelm at one of the Wizzrobes before the darkness lifted!

  381. <Navi> DM: You rolled 1 Die with 5 Sides. Result: 4.
  382. <DM> *Corsava, you suddenly feel 4 neutral damage as a mental shock to your mind.
  383. * Kirran is not moving
  384. <DM> *There's a slight shock on Medlora, and a jar falls to the ground. It shatters, revealing an unconscious Raine.
  385. <Corsava> "Ow..."
  386. <DM> [Medlora]: Whoops, thought I was protecting that fairy.

  400. <DM> [Zant]: I have..... a proposal for you all. If you'd hear me out...
  401. <DM> [Zant]: If you'll just put your weapons down.... and stop sticking bombs in my pants....
  402. <DM> *He points the blade towards Medlora.
  403. <DM> [Zant]: What if I prove to you all that your librarian friend... is actually the enemy?
  404. <Darte> "Look, people age, we get it. Nothing to be embarrassed about, we'll just get you some Depends..."

  412. <DM> *Sadly, no, he got armor.
  413. <DM> Zant: 29h, 15m
  414. <DM> (yes, that's actually his health stat. Makes you wonder how threatening he could possibly be? .... if only you could bloody hit him.....)
  415. <DM> [Medlora]: Yeah, I'm an enemy to you, Zant. What are you even proving, anyways?
  416. <DM> [Zant]: That you-
  417. <DM> *He suddenly pauses, dropping to the floor in pain.
  418. <DM> [Zant]: Gah, what was that?!
  419. <Corsava> "I don't know, probably heartburn. It happens. Look, people get past their prime. It's okay to accept."
  420. <DM> *Hal, you're flaring up pretty badly. Last you felt like this, that Mask Man was around.
  421. <Hal> ... Something... else is here.
  422. <Hal> Madness... What's the Happy Mask Salesman doing here?
  423. <Corsava> "Wait, was he actually selling things?"
  424. <DM> [Zant]: The Mask Man? How would I know? I just know tha-
  425. * Darte blinks. "That _thing_ that showed up earlier in the mirror room?"
  426. <DM> *Another jolt of pain. He crutches his head with his hand.
  427. <DM> [Zant]: What.... what is this?! Every time I try to mention that name, I get- GAH!
  428. <DM> *He falls to the ground, then starts zipping around reactively.
  429. * Kirran warps to Raine and scoops her up
  430. <Corsava> *watches his teleports to see if a pattern develops*
  431. <DM> *Raine starts mumbling.
  432. <DM> [Raine]: Umm.... Kirran? Is that... really you?
  433. <Kirran> The one and only. Sorry things went so badly.
  434. <DM> *Corsava, you see Zant bounce around in a circle, trying to outright your folks' ability to turn.
  435. <Corsava> *waits until I can position near where I think he'll teleport next, and places an arrow at roughly head level*
  436. <DM> [Raine]: Uhh... okay. I'm just not sure anymore. Feels like... my energy.. has been sucked out..... blleeeehhhh....
  437. <DM> *Kirran, looking at Raine, she's glowing a bright light, but.... she's not switching to the darkness aura anymore. At all.
  438. <DM> *She doesn't seem to have the same energy she used to.
  439. <Kirran> Who did this to you?
  440. <DM> [Raine]: I don't.... know......... I swear the only ones that were in here were.... Zanty, Medie, and Corsy.... unless there's someone else here...
  441. <Hal> Happy Mask Salesman...
  442. <Corsava> "Actually, not so much. It's an interaction with her and my mark."
  443. * Darte growls. "Where's he hiding? Another mirror?"
  444. <Corsava> *shows that I'm missing a dot*
  445. <DM> [Raine]: Uhh, no, not the mask man, I don't.... feel his presence... at.....
  446. <DM> *She passes back out, stuck in her bright form.
  447. <Corsava> "When I touched her, she started to act up, and then passed out."
  448. <Hal> If he's not here, then he must have some involvement here.
  449. <Kirran> Corsava, if we didn't have bigger problems, you'd be a pincushion right now.
  450. <Corsava> "How was I supposed to know? I didn't *try* to do that."
  451. * Kirran looks around for Zant
  452. <Corsava> *frustrated mumble* It drained one of my dots away.
  453. <DM> *Corsava, Zant's teleportation is tad wonky due to the pain he's recovering from. He's actually bumping into several shelves.
  454. * Hal looks around for the Wizzrobes
  455. * Darte readies his last Sacred Golden Arrow.
  456. <DM> *The Wizzrobes are back at their task, trying to get close to Medlora's shadow, but she's intentionally flying the books over around to create layers of endless shadows, preventing the Twilightrobes from getting closer.
  457. <Darte> (A set of overly strong Golden Arrows that can somehow used by anyone. Embossed on the shaft of each arrow is some writing: "Pierce the heavens!" Hits one target." - I'm seeing a studio theme, here)
  458. <DM> (god dangit nappa)
  459. <DM> [Medlora]: Now now, shadowy friendsy fellows, no closer! Shoo! Get off my books!
  460. <DM> *Zant's voice bounces around wildly....
  461. <Corsava> *draws a pair of scimitars and gets ready to attack the shadowrobes the second that one of you can shut off the lights*
  462. <DM> [Zant]: Medlora... what did you do to me?! Why can't I- GAH!
  463. <DM> *Zant slams into a wall, then flashes away, this time not reappearing.
  464. * Hal casts Veil of Shadows on the room once more, blotting out the light and using the last of his magic.
  465. <Corsava> *goes for an X Slash*
  466. <DM> *The darkness returns, shutting out the lights. Both the Twilightrobes gain their physical forms.
  467. * Kirran teleports to and punches one of the wizzrobes
  468. * Hal switches his cane out for his Siphoning Wand and then firing a Siphoning blast at one of the Wizzrobes, specifically the one Kirran is attacking.

  533. <Kirran> o_o
  534. <DM> *The first Twilightrobe cries as its body falls into its own shadow, then dissolving into nothingness as the darkness lingers on.
  535. <DM> *Hal, you going for that rolloff roll?
  536. <Hal> $39d10

  538. <Hal> (I got confused big time)
  539. <DM> *Whelp, that didn't work.
  540. * Hal survived
  541. <Hal> (8 damage total)
  542. <DM> *Right as the darkness starts to let up, a flurry of books slams into Twilightrobe2, encasing it.
  543. <DM> [Medlora]: Okay, I think I get how these fellas work now. As long as they're inside darkness, they can get hit, right?
  544. <Hal> Yes.
  545. <DM> *More and more books cover the wizard.
  546. <Hal> That appears to be the case.
  547. <DM> [Medlora]: Well.... DROWN IN KNOWLEDGE, YOU SHADOW SLUT!
  548. <Corsava> ..."But now we can't get at it without harming the books."
  549. <DM> [Medlora]: So, anyone got a finisher move while it's stuck in there?
  550. * Kirran fires an arrow through all the books without hitting any of them
  551. <DM> [Medlora]: Meh, those are all just empty books. I can fix those up later.
  552. <DM> *Roll it
  553. <Corsava> "Oh."
  554. <Kirran> $51d10
  555. <Navi> Kirran: You rolled 51 Dice with 10 Sides. Total: 292. Successes: 38.
  556. <Hal> 10h 4m | +4 Armor
  557. <DM> *Yeah, that's definitely high enough.
  558. * Kirran isn't even looking
  559. <Darte> (Finesse move)
  560. <DM> *Your arrow expertly zips through the gaps, mere hairs away from hitting any book. There's a SHOONK sound as the arrow flies out the other side, unphased by the double of wall of books.
  561. <DM> [Shadow1]: That..... arrow wasn't...... taaaaastyyyyyyy........
  562. <DM> *Medlora lifts the books to reveal a dissolving shadow.
  563. <DM> [Medlora]: Ha-hah, eat that!
  564. <Hal> That was a rough venture.
  565. <DM> *She returns to her usual cheery self, floating in the air on one of her books like before.
  566. * Hal consumes a Recovery Heart.
  567. * Darte sighs wearily. "Can we please not drag those things around ever again?"
  568. * Kirran is extremely upset about Raine.
  569. <Hal> 16h 4m | +4 Armor
  570. * Hal equips his Cane of Dekri again.
  571. <DM> [Medlora]: Wellllllllcome to Medlora's Fancy Ultradoministic Intermitent Floral Interdicting Mesmerizing Flattering Super Show Library of Empty Books- DANGIT, I JUST REMINDED MYSELF MOST OF THESE BOOKS ARE EMPTY, ARRRRRGGH!
  572. <Hal> (Wizzrobe drops?)
  573. <DM> (twill post post-session)
  574. <Hal> (No random drops?)
  575. <DM> (yeah post-session that sucker)
  576. <DM> *Just then, Zant appears once more, from behind Medlora and holding a blade up to her neck, with a crazy maniacal expression.
  577. <DM> [Zant]: Now now now, just cause you think you all have the advantage, doesn't mean you have the advantage, especially when one such as I am around to have the advantage, yes yes!
  578. <DM> (DM's note: WHAT)
  579. <Corsava> "How did you fall for an illusion of Medlora?"
  580. <DM> [Zant]: And now, I'm going to make this librarian....... disappea- WHAT?!
  581. * Hal recovers 2 magic from his Magic Regen
  582. <DM> *Zant quickly looks around.
  583. <Corsava> "Isn't anyone here competent?"
  584. <Darte> "One step ahead of you?"
  585. * Kirran teleports behind him and tries to cut off his armor again while he's not looking
  586. <DM> *Medlora uses that chance to free herself then slam Zant with a bunch of books.
  587. * Darte becomes swordfish and flips towards Corsava.
  588. <DM> *Corsava, you think you have his pattern down now.... also, if you reeeeeeaaaaally want to lay the pain down, see about getting that one arrow from Darte.
  589. <Corsava> *grabs Darte and uses him as she predicts the pattern*
  590. <DM> [Zant]: Oh please, I know someone is trying to strike me from behind, you know how well this is going to work, hah!
  591. <DM> *Kirran, you once again try to slice, and the moment your sword hits the armor, he flashes away.
  592. * Kirran doesn't move again.
  593. <DM> *Corsava, you may fire when ready.
  594. <Corsava> *grins* And then he'll be-
  595. <Corsava> *stabs Darte into the spot* "Here."
  596. <Darte> "Lewd."
  597. <Corsava> *aims to get him right through the heart, if I can*
  598. <DM> *Zant reappears, annnnnd there is now a swordfish stuck in his armor. It's not quite piercing all the way, but it's now nicely impaled in the armor...... and not letting go.
  599. <DM> [Zant]: Argh- what the f-?!
  600. * Hal looks around and attempts to steal as Zant teleports where he predicted the next time where he would be.
  601. <Darte> "Call me Tenacious Dace."
  602. <DM> *Zant attempts to teleport away, only to accidentally push the Darte blade further in, injuring himself.
  603. * Kirran teleports close by and attempts once again to cut the armor off him while he's distracted and stuck.
  604. <DM> [Zant]: AAAAUUUUUGH!
  605. <DM> *Darte blade is with him. Darte...... would you like to hengen back to your normal self?
  606. <Corsava> "It's over, Zant."
  607. * Darte doesn't think so. This seems like a particularly bad time to, in fact.
  608. <DM> *Kirran, you strike again, and again, he teleports away, and again, Darte goes in deeper, now nicely impaling through him....
  609. <DM> *The blade is now sticking out the other side.
  610. <DM> *Sure you don't want to try it, Darte?
  611. * Hal attempts to steal as Zant teleports to the next position he would be in
  612. <Corsava> "How...are you alive?"
  613. <Darte> (Give it a liiiiittle longer.)
  614. <DM> *Hal, you think about stealing, but there's a sword sticking through Zant. Sure you wanna try it, risking damage to yourself?
  615. * Kirran repeats previous action.
  616. * Hal steps back, reconsiders his next move
  617. * Kirran is maybe just a little incensed right now about the whole Raine thing.
  618. * Hal instead ninja-pokes Zant
  619. * Darte chooses that moment to re-zorafy
  620. <DM> *Kirran, you go for the slice, and this time...... Zant tries forming a portal of darkness on the ground. Though, instead of falling through it, the ninja-poke offsets him into Kirran's blade. The blade doesn't detach the armor, but it does push him forward, into the ground, and thus fully pushing Darteblade into Zant, up until the hilt hits the armor.
  621. <DM> *At that moment.... Darte, you suddenly transform back into your normal self..... inside of Zant.
  622. <Corsava> ...
  623. <Corsava> "Oh...my god..."
  624. <Corsava> "It's...hideous!"
  625. * Hal prepares for carnage
  626. <DM> *There's a huge coughing sound followed by a malformed Zant bulging outwards, his chest exploded as Dartealien bursts out of his stomach, landing on the ground in a pile of blood and guts. Zant himself loses all color, then falls to the ground, a shadow of his former self, ZIIIING!
  627. <DM> *Darte is now wearing that armor, and it has mended itself and is a perfect fit.
  628. * Darte wonders if this has any effect on Raine.
  629. <Hal> You thought you had the advantage Zant? Hah, say that do your dead body.
  630. <Hal> *to
  631. <Darte> (Oh gosh I'm a Bleach character now)
  632. <Corsava> *does a little curtsy to Medlora* Your assailants lie defeated, ma'am. You are safe."
  633. * Kirran sits down heavily.
  634. <Kirran> Midna is not going to like this.
  635. <DM> *You consider looting Zant's body..... until you realize there's a Twilight Fairy rising up from inside his body. It covers him in a flash of teal light. You see Zant return to life, then zip away completely, his presence dissipating from the area.
  636. <Hal> ... or not
  637. <DM> [Medlora]: Oooh it figures, knew that'd be an issue when he mentioned the Twilight Fairies earlier. Well, at least he doesn't have the armor anymore!
  638. <Hal> Should have incinerated him.
  639. <DM> *Medlora does a curtsy back to Corsava, blushing slightly.
  640. <DM> [Medlora]: Why thank you! Annnnnnd thank you mister blue fishyguy!
  641. <Corsava> *grins*
  642. <DM> [Medlora]: Or...... red..... that's a lot of blood.
  643. * Darte looks himself over. "Er. Sorry, that's a bit unseemly." He casts Jabun's Tide to wash it off.
  644. <DM> *The blood is now staining across the library ground. Nice washing bro.
  645. <Corsava> "wait no you don-"
  646. <Hal> Got stain-remover?
  647. <Darte> (Smooth move, fish loverboy)
  648. <Corsava> "You don't use-"
  649. <Corsava> "aww,"
  650. <Corsava> "Well, you got the armor, and that means he's 0 for two on the whole 'light artifacts' thing."
  651. <Kirran> He's also got a hostage...
  652. <DM> [Medlora]: Soooooooo........ where's Zuphy?
  653. <Hal> Yes, Midna is not going to be pleased.
  654. <Hal> Zuph... is being held hostage by Zant.
  655. <DM> [Medlora]: Wait, Zuph is the hostage? Are you.... is that how Zant got the armor?!
  656. <Kirran> Did you not read my note?
  657. <Corsava> "Wait, how did he get captured?"
  658. <DM> [Medlora]: I did read that note, it just now clicked that HOW DID ZUPH GET CAPTURED WITH THAT ARMOR?!
  659. <Corsava> "I thought we were protecting him before, despite all my rage, I became just locked in a...well, it was a chest, actually."
  660. * Darte pokes at his new armor. "Wait. Does this mean I can zip over there to get him back?"
  661. <Hal> He managed to pin us into a corner where he could hold Zuph hostage.
  662. <Corsava> "No, line of sight only."
  663. <Kirran> Zant's got some kind of gravity generator. It kept everyone from moving around.
  664. <Corsava> "And you need to be 'attuned' to darkness in order to use it out in interloper territory."
  665. <Corsava> "Did you not pay attention at all when he was talking about it?"
  666. <DM> (Admittedly, Zant didn't quite reveal some of what he told you)
  667. <DM> [Medlora]: Hmm.... how to get Zuphy back- wait..... where's that little group member of yours that pretend to be a statue?
  668. <Hal> Even without the armor, Zant is in a position where it is difficult to harm him.
  669. <Hal> Dex Gamebreaker? Yeah, he's gone sneaking into the Interloper hideout.
  670. <DM> [Medlora]: H-wha?!
  671. <Corsava> "Did you guys get the crystals by the way?"
  672. <DM> *She does a double take.
  673. <Hal> He has an ability that lets him sneak in.
  674. <DM> [Medlora]: Wellllll everything I've heard about the Interloper base..... it was nice knowing that little guy. RIP>
  675. * Darte grumbles. "Just thought I'd try."
  676. <Kirran> He's been through worse
  677. <DM> [Medlora]: If I manage to find that darned Zanty, I'll....
  678. <Corsava> "So, Darte, how's the fit?"
  679. <DM> *She pauses.
  680. <DM> [Medlora]: ... I'll let you know so you can take him down.
  681. <DM> *Darte, the fit is..... disturbingly perfect.
  682. <Corsava> "Oooh, when you sword-form, does it stay on sword you?"
  683. <Darte> "Fit's fine."
  684. <Darte> "... Rides up the crotch a little."
  685. <DM> *It's uhh..... now that you look down at it, it's got a Zora design to it.
  686. <Kirran> More important to me is how to help my friend. Medlora, where is the twilight fairy fountain?
  687. <Corsava> "Does it become sword-armor?"
  688. <DM> [Medlora]: Huh?
  689. * Kirran shows her Raine in her bottle.
  690. <Kirran> I don't understand what happened, but it needs to be fixed, and right the hell now.
  691. <DM> [Medlora]: Uhhh, well..... I thought all the Twilight Fairies were last held by Midna, but if Zant has some, uhhh.... that means that fairy fountain must've survived the Great Destruction and it's still out there somewhere. I just have no idea where....
  692. <Kirran> Where is Midna right now?
  693. <DM> [Medlora]: Oh, probably still in the Mirror Room. Check the Council Chamber.
  694. * Kirran immediately leaves to go find her.
  695. <DM> [Medlora]: I doubt she heard anything down here, this room is nicely insulated.
  696. <DM> *Kirran, you bolt over to the Council Chamber. Ahead, it's empty, with a locked door at the end of it.
  697. <DM> *Anyone following him?
  698. <Hal> That sword Zant had. That must be the Warlock blade. One of the blades wielded by the Seven Sages.
  699. <Corsava> *follows with a sigh*
  700. <Corsava> "He...did call it that, yes."
  701. <DM> [Medlora]: Reeeeaaaaally now? Cool. Huh, so that's what it was....
  702. * Kirran knocks somewhat forcefully on the door.
  703. <DM> *She returns to reading various books, use magnets to clean things up simultaneously.
  704. <Hal> Anyway, I need to bolt now.
  705. * Hal follows Kirran
  706. <DM> [Medlora]: Sure thing. Thanks for helping out with the Zanty situation!
  707. <Darte> "Whatever it was, it was making my thingy tingle."
  708. <DM> *Hal, you get to the Council Chamber, and you see Kirran knocking on the locked door on the other side. Uhh.... and there's something else reeeeaaaaaaaally odd.
  709. <Corsava> *turns around and makes a little heart with my hands at Medlora before I leave the room*
  710. <Darte> "... Medal. MEDALLION. TIDE THING."
  711. * Hal looks around to see what souls are around.
  712. * Darte just blinks, turns, and follows the others without another word.
  713. <DM> *Now that you have Spirit Vision, upon entering this room, you see on that locked door the spirit of.... a Goron? Chained by spectral chains across the door. He appears to be in a cross between pain and a dazed out haze.
  714. <DM> *Kirran is currently knocking the door through the Goron's spirit, completely unaware of the spirit.
  715. <Hal> Kirran; there is a Goron spirit on the door.
  716. <DM> *A what? Please, do go-ron.
  717. <Corsava> "Do...should we kill it?"
  718. <DM> *You should eat it, yea boi-
  719. <Kirran> Your maje...ho what now?
  720. * Hal threatens Baegba with Pun damage next Battle Tank session
  721. <DM> *The chains unlock, and the Goron is momentarily freed. The doors open, one of them sealing the Goron spirit into the wall. You can't see what's in the next room, but from the fog, Midna emerges. Not even your Spirit Vision goes through the fog, Hal.
  722. <DM> *She looks down at you, Kirran.
  723. <DM> [Midna]: Yes? What is it?
  724. <DM> *Right as you're about to ask, her head bugs out, a Bethesda logo replaces her face, and a series of buggy loading screens appear and flood the room.
