  1. <DM> *A recap on the Twilight Abyss...
  2. <DM> *You were chucked into the Twilight Realm by Bloodwind, for reasons unknown. There, you found yourselves in a conflict between Twili and Interlopers. After finding three of the Spirits of Light were trapped in the Twilight Realm, you learned your only way out was to find and assemble the Twilight Mirror. It took time, but you were able to eventually gain the trust of Xanas, Medlora, Zuph, and even Queen Midna, along with the rest of the Twili. Through battle after battle, you fought the Interlopers, even the Happy Mask Man and Zant. Great obstacles have blocked you repeatedly, but you found a way over them, and now in the final conflict with the Interlopers inside the Twilight Palace, you have what you need - the Twilight Mirror. But the Twili are still enslaved by the Interlopers. Will you decide to leave them, after all you've been through? Or will stay and fight, and drive Dark Link and the Interlopers away?
  3. <DM> *Last time on ZURPG!
  4. <DM> *In your most recent encounter, you managed to acquired all the pieces of the Twilight Mirror, but Midna was greatly injured and incapacitated. Xanas and the rest of the Twili finally rejoined the battle, but thanks to a sketchy spell placed on all of them back at the Sol Fountain, Dark Link snapped them to his control. You tried to break them free, succeeding on solely Xanas, though somehow in the process, the mirror fragments united and assembled, forming the Twilight Mirror. A shadow portal spontaneously appeared, removing it from the area. You all dived in, with Xanas as well, but not before retaliating with a supernova against Dark Link and his forces. On the other side, you find yourself in Midna's room, with Medlora wearing half the Fused Shadow and holding the completed Twilight Mirror.
  5. <DM> -=FINALE=-
  7. <Kirran> (Geodudes fall, everyone dies. End of quest.)
  8. * Corsava collapses through the portal, middle finger raised, with a gleeful laugh. "Wow...I can't believe it. If I wasn't a Gerudo I'd be fucking blind!"
  9. <DM> *You all wake up from the rush, and find yourselves in a rather small room. There's a tree with a pair of Twilight Fairies rotating around it, an elevator in the corner... and hovering over the bed nearby, you see a familiar Twili floating on a stack of books, wearing what appears to be Midna's half of the Fused Shadow.
  10. <DM> *She's also nicely inspecting the Twilight Mirror as she glances at you.
  11. <DM> : [Medlora]: Heeeeeeeello, long time no see, buds!
  12. <Hal> (brb)
  13. * Corsava curtsies to her with a smile "It's always a pleasure"
  14. * Kirran takes off his sunglasses.
  15. <Kirran> Yo
  16. <DM> *She winks at you, adding a courtesy smile.
  17. * Darte gives Medlora a sheepish grin as well.
  18. <DM> *Kirran, you're pretty sure last time you saw Medlora, she had a Sol Orb over her head, but doesn't this time. Weird.
  19. <Kirran> >_>
  20. <DM> [Medlora]: Sooo I found out something really fun!
  21. <DM> *She points to the half of the Fused Shadow she's wearing.
  22. <DM> [Medlora]: Did you know I can use this to peak?
  23. <DM> *She flusters momentarily.
  24. <DM> [Medlora]: Err-err i-it's not what you t-think, I-I-I didn't use it on M-Midna, I swear!
  25. <Darte> ... Peak?
  26. <Darte> ... Summit?
  27. * Corsava shrugs "I'm not going to judge."
  28. <DM> [Medlora]: Peek, you twat!
  29. <DM> [Medlora]: I just, you know.... used it to look in o-on that battle!
  30. * Darte stifles a cough.
  31. <DM> *She taps her index fingers together as she looks to the side with her one unmasked eye.
  32. * Corsava wonders how she managed to turn only one eye
  33. <DM> *With your Spirit Vision, looking at her soul, it appears to be the normal teal color... but every now and then, it spikes outwards.
  34. <Hal> (back)
  35. <DM> *Xanas, at the bottom of the pile of you lot, grunts.
  36. <Corsava> "Hey, Meddie, just a heads up, that mask is making your soul do a bounce every now and then."
  37. <DM> [Xanas]: Could... someone let me out?
  38. <DM> [Medlora]: H-wha? My wha?
  39. * Hal lets Xanas out by moving off the top of him
  40. <Corsava> "We can see souls, it's a weird spirit thing."
  41. <DM> *She suddenly crosses her arms over her body and recoils a bit.
  42. <DM> [Medlora]: Ew! P-pervert! How DARE you look at my soul without my permission!
  43. <Darte> "Smooth, killer."
  44. * Corsava brushes dust off of Xanas' shoulder. "Hey, you're alive! Glad you were able to get past that crazy light nova."
  45. <Kirran> o_o
  46. <DM> *Xanas dusts himself off and reorients himself.
  47. <Kirran> (Don't even ask about the other guys...)
  48. <DM> *He looks you square in the eyes, Corsava.
  49. <Kirran> (I think they're the dust he just wiped off himself)
  50. <DM> [Xanas]: If we weren't screwed already, I'd punch you about now.
  51. <Darte> "So, something tells me we're gonna see our dark pal in..." He nudges his glasses. "Literally any moment."
  52. <Kirran> My money's on Medlora turning into Happy Mask
  53. <DM> [Medlora]: Woah-hoh-hoh-hoh, whaddya mean, screwed? Xany-boy, we gots the Twilight Mirror!
  54. <DM> *She turns towards you, Kirran, perplexed.
  55. <DM> [Medlora]: The happy who?
  56. <Hal> We need to get back into the battle as soon as we can.
  57. <DM> *Another spike when she says that.
  58. <Hal> But we need a plan of attack.
  59. <DM> [Xanas]: Where did all the Sols in the palace go? They couldn't have just destroyed them all, could they?
  60. <Corsava> "We need to corner Scepter.
  61. <Corsava> "He's the key target."
  62. <Hal> That goop the Twili supplied is able to sever the spell controlling the Twili
  63. <Kirran> Psycho killer. Quite mad.
  64. <Corsava> "With him out of the way, Angstknife will crumble into dust."
  65. <Hal> We need to apply that to all of the Twili.
  66. <Kirran> Speaking of, where did disappear to anyways?
  67. <Hal> Another objective is to get rid of Scepter.
  68. * Darte moves towards Medlora. "Got anything in those books on how to use it? We just got the pieces."
  69. <DM> [Xanas]: Apply it? That goop makes anything it touches melts.
  70. <Kirran> I have heard any screaming madness in my head for a while now.
  71. <Kirran> haven't*
  72. <Corsava> "Oh, do you want some?"
  73. <DM> *Medlora looks at you, Darte, then back at the full Twilight Mirror, then back at you.
  74. <DM> [Medlora]: Well..... there's this one!
  75. <Hal> Arrows work. Dip it into goop and then fire it
  76. <DM> *She shuffles through his books, then pulls out that one book that's written in Ancient Hylian.
  77. <Kirran> Wait a second, didn't you give me that one?
  78. <Kirran> Or is this a fake?
  79. <Hal> Another concern is Dark Link. All four of him will be in the battle by now
  80. <DM> [Medlora]: Wha? You gave this back to me. Back in the library, remember?
  81. <Hal> And we need to finish it before mega dark mass shows up.
  82. * Kirran is now deeply suspicious
  83. <DM> *Nah, Kirran, all you've heard since you've gotten here in the Twilight Palace are constant Interloper whispers.
  84. <DM> *She hands it to you guys.
  85. <Hal> We also need to save the Light Spirits
  86. <DM> [Medlora]: I'm done reading it. You guys can have it now.
  87. * Kirran pulls out the book he has in his pack.
  88. <DM> *Two Ancient Hylian books! The continuity can't handle this!
  89. <DM> [Medlora]: ...... huh, could've sworn I got it back.
  90. <Kirran> Who are you, really?
  91. <DM> [Medlora]: Whaddya mean?
  92. <Corsava> "No, Dark Link is last. The order is Scepter so we can take out Deathsword, which frees the twili, destroying the dark mass so we can take out Dark Link.
  93. <DM> *Another spike.
  94. <Kirran> I may not know Medlora that well, but I know she's meticulous about her books.
  95. <Kirran> She wouldn't have made an error that obvious about something she treasures.
  96. <DM> [Xanas]: She's just messy, Kirran. Though.... what is that book? Why can't I read it?
  97. <Hal> (What is this spike consisting of?)
  98. <Corsava> "...weren't *you* mistaken about the nature of your best friend?"
  99. * Kirran slaps Corsava with the book.
  100. <Corsava> $1d3
  101. <Navi> Corsava: You rolled 1 Die with 3 Sides. Result: 2.
  102. <Kirran> $45d10
  103. <Navi> Kirran: You rolled 45 Dice with 10 Sides. Results: 10, 2, 5, 8, 5, 6, 5, 8, 8, 3, 9, 3, 3, 3, 10, 5, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 3, 3, 1, 5, 7, 6, 7, 7, 10, 1, 6, 1, 6, 3, 6, 1, 8, 3, 9, 10, 1, 1, 3 and 4. Total: 220. Successes: 28.
  104. <Kirran> (She is partly responsible for the state Raine is in.)
  105. <Corsava> $48d10
  106. <DM> *Hal, you try to focus on the spikes. It appears to be the opposite color of the soul, red spikes...
  107. <Navi> Corsava: You rolled 48 Dice with 10 Sides. Results: 10, 8, 4, 2, 1, 8, 6, 4, 10, 7, 8, 7, 2, 4, 3, 1, 5, 9, 2, 1, 2, 7, 1, 9, 10, 9, 9, 1, 10, 2, 5, 9, 9, 8, 10, 9, 5, 6, 2, 5, 3, 9, 2, 5, 3, 5, 6 and 8. Total: 271. Successes: 35.
  108. <Corsava> $18d10
  109. <Navi> Corsava: You rolled 18 Dice with 10 Sides. Results: 3, 7, 8, 5, 4, 9, 3, 4, 8, 2, 5, 7, 3, 9, 5, 2, 7 and 4. Total: 95. Successes: 10.
  110. * Darte moves to Hal. "Which side of the face did Midna have her mask on?"
  111. <DM> *Kirran, the book that Medlora's holding suddenly fizzles out of existence.
  112. <Hal> Can't remember.
  113. * Kirran steps back away from """"Medlora""""
  114. <DM> *As far as you can tell, Darte, Medlora is using Midna's half the Fused Shadow.
  115. <DM> [Xanas]: Medlora, do you know where Midna is?
  116. * Kirran grabs Xanas and pulls him back too.
  117. <DM> [Medlora]: Mm-hmm! I saved her and sent her to the Sol Fountain!
  118. <Kirran> Be on your guard, Xanas. Nothing is as it seems anymore.
  119. <DM> [Medlora]: She's fiiiiiine.
  120. <DM> [Xanas]: What do you mean, Kirran?
  121. <Corsava> "Huh, she's developing a habit of getting dumped into the sol fountai- wait, anymore?"
  122. <DM> [Xanas]: Is this not Medlora?
  123. <Hal> This is not Medlora.
  124. <Hal> I can sense the soul... it's not her.
  125. <Kirran> Am I only one that just saw a book fizzle into dust?
  126. <DM> *She gives you her usual gleeful smile... then adjusts it slightly to a coy smile, one that's unusually calm.
  127. <Kirran> I ask again: Who are you, really?
  128. <DM> [Medlora]: Aww, I just wanted to keep playing with you guys. You know, I reeeeeaaally really thought you guys would've found out sooner. I'm really surprised I was able to get away with it for this long...
  129. <DM> *She starts pointing at you, one by one.
  130. <DM> [Medlora]: Furry guy, remember when I got you to lick your foot? Ahahahah, that was so much fun! You really did it! Pfhahahahah!
  131. <Corsava> "Yeah, that was a pretty crazy streak. I thought you'd make it the whole way through."
  132. * Hal bursts out a Sol and wears his Sol Mask; shining directly into "Medlora"
  133. <DM> [Medlora]: Or that little lizard guy, he tried to- ahahah, get this, he tried to shuffle by pretending to be a statue! Oooooh classic!
  134. <Corsava> Wait, shuffle what?
  135. <DM> *You see a second soul behind the teal soul, a red one.
  136. <Kirran> Bloodwind?
  137. <Hal> My thoughts exactly
  138. <DM> *Medlora snaps her fingers.
  139. <DM> [Medlora]: Bingo!
  140. <DM> [Xanas]: Who?
  141. <Darte> "Sh--"
  142. <DM> *She starts hovering back and forth across the other side of the room, gleefully spinning in place.
  143. * Corsava "Wait, you guys know eachother?"
  144. <DM> *She turns to you, Kirran.
  145. <Kirran> He's my stalker.
  146. <DM> [Medlora]: Oh, I'm reeeeaaaaally really sorry about what happened to Raine. I didn't know you were carrying Majora's Heart with you all this time. When I found that out...... welllll...... she's still alright, right?
  147. * Kirran fires an arrow at the illusion
  148. <DM> [Xanas]: How could someone mask themselves in front of us this whole time?
  149. <DM> *A shadow hand plops up, deflecting the arrow.
  150. <Hal> Bloodwind; he's someone extremely dangerous. Wielding both Majora's and Fierce Deity's artifacts, he is perhaps the most dangerous of anyone.
  151. <Corsava> "Because you knew nobody could. It's not the thing you don't know that gets you. It's the thing you know for certain isn't so that gets you.
  152. <DM> [Medlora]: Believe it or not, I'm the real deal. If I was an illusion, you wouldn't be able to see my soul.
  153. <Darte> "And that's saying something, given who we've got on our tail."
  154. <DM> [Medlora]: Come oooon guys, didn't I show you guys this exact power before when I masqueraded as Impa?
  155. <Kirran> What do you want Blood? I know you've been behind the scenes this whole time.
  156. <DM> [Medlora]: What I want? Oh! Well, it's funny you asked.
  157. <Kirran> Why are you following me around?
  158. <DM> *She points at the Twilight Mirror.
  159. <Corsava> "The...big shiny thing right there."
  160. <DM> [Medlora]: You got me exactly what I want already!
  161. <Hal> What do you plan to do with it?
  162. <Kirran> No dice. Do you realize who we've had to punch in the face just to get this?
  163. <DM> [Medlora]: See? Big fancy Twilight Mirror! I didn't have to say a thing, and you guys did exaaaactly what I wanted!
  164. <DM> [Medlora]: Yyyyyep! Don't worry, I fully intend to reward you guys.
  165. <Corsava> "Will you help us kill the interlopers?"
  166. <DM> [Medlora]: I'm not here to fight. Really. Well, I mean.... yes I am, but I don't wanna fight you guys. Instead..... hey Xanas, what's that one Interloper that's holding all your Twili buds hostage?
  167. <Hal> How did you get the mask?
  168. <DM> [Medlora]: The one with a really stupid name?
  169. <DM> *Xanas is shaking in place, not sure what to believe or hear.
  170. <DM> [Medlora]: Obviously, I took it off of Midna.
  171. <Darte> "Well, what's he got that you want?"
  172. <Hal> Death Sword is holding all the Twili buds hostage. Kill him and the Twili villagers will be free
  173. <Hal> Freeing the army, however, will require breaking the spell Dark Link has over them.
  174. <DM> [Medlora]: Yep yep! I didn't think we'd get a chance to kill him, but now that we do.... I am more than happy to help you kill Death Sword!
  175. <Corsava> "Sweet. I hate that guy."
  176. <DM> [Medlora]: Seeeee? Corsavy agrees with me!
  177. <Kirran> I want no help from him.
  178. <Corsava> "Who wants the over on us having a fight afterwords? I'm taking the under. I'm optimistic about this."
  179. <Kirran> It's bad enough he's meddled everywhere else. I don't even know how he got here, much less why he can't stop following me everywhere I go.
  180. <DM> [Medlora]: Oh? But.... I'm offering my help! You guys really could use the help. I think that really big Dark Mass is getting up the elevator, last I checked...
  181. <Corsava> "Uuuuuuugh. I can't believe it's made of Twili. I wouldn't have blown one up if I knew *that*!"
  182. <DM> [Medlora]: Wouldn't be good if Death Sword started healing himself off it. You guys did a real good chunk of damage to him!
  183. <DM> [Medlora]: Relaaaaax, the one you exploded was made of dead Twili. This one's made of living Twili! ......... wow that really doesn't make it better.
  184. <Corsava> "To be honest, it does make it feel a little better."
  185. * Darte shakes his head at Kirran. "Not you. Raine."
  186. <Corsava> "At least they're at rest."
  187. <DM> [Medlora]: Sooooooo, furry guy and Xany boy, you guys sounded like you were planning something before we go back in to go nuke some dark baddies!
  188. <DM> [Medlora]: Lemme in, lemme in on the plan!
  189. <Hal> I don't think we have many options right now.
  190. <DM> [Medlora]: ^_^
  191. <DM> ^_^
  192. <Corsava> "Besides, this is roughly the point in the narrative where an 'enemy mine' alliance is appropriate before fighting a common enemy."
  193. <DM> [Xanas]: I.... I don't...... no, we.... you HAVE to be Medlora, you can't be someone else! We can't possibly get fooled by someone else!
  194. * Kirran is feeling very let down by the team.
  195. <DM> [Medlora]: Aww, but Xanas, I am Medlora! I mean, you couldn't tell the difference. So clearly, I'm still Medlora. Do I look like someone else?
  196. <Corsava> "...see, Xanas, it's that sort of narrow-minded certainty that led to your shield failing even though it 'couldn't possibly' fail.
  197. <Darte> "Xanas, this is definitely the real deal not-Medlora. Or Medlora was Bloodhead this whole time. Either way, no pal of ours."
  198. <Corsava> "So...really, how do you guys know eachother?"
  199. <DM> [Xanas]: How.... how could I have been fooled..... all this time?!
  200. <Corsava> "Because you were *certain*"
  201. <Corsava> "How many times does that need circling back to?"
  202. * Kirran slips away, opens a portal to the fountain, and leaves.
  203. <DM> *Kirran, where to?
  204. <Hal> (Who have Warp Rings?)
  205. <Corsava> "I guess it's easier to not be certain when there's pieces of you that are actively rebelling against yourself at all times..."
  206. <Kirran> The Fountain where Midna supposedly is.
  207. <DM> [Medlora]: Yer used to Interlopers. Pro tip - never trust an Interloper. They suuuuuuck. No really, they always try to backstab you. I mean, yeah I deceived you of my identity, but really guys..... I just wanna help you kill the Interlopers. At least Death Sword, cause now that I know how fast he can form a Dark Mass, I reeeaaaaally don't wanna deal with it later.
  208. * Darte snaps his fingers in front of Xanas' face. "Get it together. We'll get things set straight, but first we need to deal with the more... imminently manic threat incoming."
  209. * DM prods Kirran into #zurpg2
  210. <Hal> You have an Interloper in you too Bloodwind
  211. <DM> [Medlora]: Well aware, furry guy. Well aware.
  212. <DM> *She seems to twitch when you mention that.
  213. <Hal> How do we know you are not going to backstab us.
  214. <Corsava> "Because we'll do our best to make it tactically unwise?"
  215. <DM> [Medlora]: Backstab you? You gave me the Twilight Mirror! I'm not an Interloper, screw them. In fact, is there anything else you want from me before we go blow up some dark guys?
  216. <Corsava> "And I mean...if it's betrayal later or a fight now, before we've even saved the Twili, I'd rather not waste resources."
  217. * Darte chugs Chateau Romani.
  218. <Corsava> "I dunno. Swag?"
  219. <Corsava> "Loot?"
  220. <Corsava> "Plunder?"
  221. <Corsava> "Profits?"
  222. <Corsava> "Doubloons?"
  223. <DM> [Medlora]: Oh, before I portal us all back, two things - I'd recommend chargin' up a good move and potioning yerself...
  224. <Corsava> "Salvage?"
  225. <Corsava> "Pillage?"
  226. <Corsava> "Treasure?"
  227. <Corsava> "Lucre?"
  228. <Corsava> "I'm running out of synonyms here."
  229. * Darte closes his eyes, seeming to be concentrating on something. "Watch my back, he mutters."
  230. <DM> [Medlora]: And uhh... I'm going to stay in this form. Sorry, I can't let Dark Link copy my real form.
  231. <DM> [Medlora]: Unless you guys are complete morons and want to make the fight way more difficult than it needs to be.
  232. <Hal> What would you do to give us the advantage?
  233. <DM> [Medlora]: Welllll.... I'm a little limited right noooooow, buuuuut I think I can reflect a few attacks, hee hee hee!
  234. <Corsava> "Well, reflecting attacks has been a pretty effective move on my end."
  235. <Corsava> "I think I saw Death Sword cry when I knocked both siege blasts back."
  236. <DM> [Medlora]: Let's see......
  237. <DM> *She plops open a shadow portal, then looks through it.
  238. <DM> [Medlora]: Nah, no Death Swordy tears. Buuuut.... oops, we chatted too long. They got that really big Dark Mass in there.
  239. <Hal> Darn it.
  240. <Hal> That thing will block all of our attacks
  241. * Darte remains more or less motionless, except for his gently flapping headfin. The outline of a portal begins to form next to him.
  242. <Corsava> "Wait...don't they have to come to us?"
  243. <Corsava> "We have the thing."
  244. <Corsava> "They want the thing."
  245. <Hal> They have Aeternal Darkness
  246. <DM> *Medlora stiffles a giggle.
  247. <Hal> We also want to save the Light Spirits
  248. <DM> [Medlora]: You know that move is just an Interloper summoning ability right?
  249. <DM> [Medlora]: It really doesn't help them at this point.
  250. <Hal> If one of them gets in here, they can summon all the others
  251. <Corsava> "Right, but they have to waste action economy to do so."
  252. <DM> [Medlora]: In here? Have you seen the size of this room? It can barely fit all of us!
  253. <Corsava> "And we get to beat down on whatever idiot stumbles upon us at like, six to one."
  254. <DM> [Xanas]: Medlora.... or...... whoever you are. Can you free the Twili from Dark Link's control?
  255. <Hal> Can you take a peek into what's happening with the Light Spirits?
  256. <DM> [Medlora]: Can do!
  257. <DM> *She looks on through. Man, Bloodwind is such a great friend and ally!
  258. <Corsava> "I think I recharged them with the siege blast, by the way."
  259. <Corsava> "They like light."
  260. <DM> [Medlora]: Oh-hoh, you're right! Wow, they're shielding the Twili, and shining radiantly!
  261. <Corsava> "HA! NO FRIENDLY FIRE!"
  262. <Hal> That's good to know. They are safe right now.
  263. <Corsava> "I DIDN'T KILL ANY OF THE TWILI!
  264. <DM> [Medlora]: Alright buds, I'mma deposit Xanas into the middle of that Twili bunch.
  265. <DM> [Xanas]: Wha-?
  266. <DM> *A shadow portal appears beneath Xanas, and he drops through it.
  267. <DM> [Medlora]: The rest of you all ready?
  268. * Corsava tucks my trident into Midna's bed
  269. <Corsava> "Alright, I'm ready."
  270. <DM> *She points to Hal and Darte.
  271. <Hal> Looks like we don't have much choice otherwise.
  272. <DM> [Medlora]: What about you, furry guy? Red...... fish- what the heck, I just noticed...
  273. <DM> [Medlora]: Darte, are you that flustered after finding out I'm Bloodwind? My, I knew you were hitting on me..... oh-hoh, that's something else!
  274. <Corsava> "Oh, that's Darte! He's always nice to me! *grin*"
  275. <Corsava> "Wait, you know him too? How do you know everyone?"
  276. * Darte really, really doesn't want to break concentration to give Corsava his best eyeroll.
  277. <DM> [Medlora]: Okee dokey, well then...
  278. <Hal> I'm sorry Kirran...
  279. <DM> [Medlora]: Sooo, we have two options.
  280. <DM> [Medlora]: Either pop up normally.... ooooor sneak attack from behind! I dunno how good of an idea that is though.
  281. <Corsava> "How about half-and-half?"
  282. <DM> [Medlora]: Oh-hoh, diversion!
  283. <Hal> Sneak attacking from behind is a good idea with that mega Dark Mass in the picture
  284. <Corsava> "That way all of their defenses are aimed one way, and we can get in behind the Mass' effect."
  285. <DM> [Medlora]: What about you and me, furry guy, us two divert and Corsavy and Red Fish go sneaky attacky?
  286. * Darte continues charging his Slipstream. "Bring them here."
  287. <DM> (Hal, you charging anything up?)
  288. <DM> (Not that you have to use it immediately, but for eventual use)
  289. <Corsava> "If we can drain Darkblade's wisdom, we can just gank him and dissipate the mass right off the bat."
  290. <Hal> (I'm going to charge Frozen Storm up)
  291. <DM> *Okee dokey, whatever all three of you have charging, it's charged by now. If you wanna potion to full as well, go ahead.
  292. * Darte downs two green potions.
  293. * Darte opens his eyes. "Right. Let 'em come." The portal flares to liquid life beside him.
  294. * Hal has Frozen Storm charged and downs a Green Potion
  295. <Hal> 21h 12m 0rp | +5 Wisdom | +3 Courage | Mirage | +10 Armor | Frozen Storm charged!
  296. <DM> [Medlora]: Alright chumps, let's do this.
  297. <DM> *She opens two shadow portals.
  298. <Darte>
  299. <DM> [Medlora]: Furry guy, follow me. You two, take the other one, it leads behind the Interlopers.
  300. <DM> *She floats down into one of them.
  301. <Hal> Yes... Bloodwind.
  302. * Corsava nods and twirls my swords a bit "See you on the other side, B."
  303. * Corsava steps through after a few seconds, to give the interlopers time to be distracted.
  304. <DM> *Alrighty, say ready when ready to jump on in!
  305. <Hal> Ready
  306. * Darte leaps through headfirst.
  307. <Kirran> (At least I got chicken.)
  309. -=MEANWHILE=-
  311. <DM> *Kirran, you zip on out at the Sol Fountain... where, just as Medlora/Bloodwind said, Midna is there! She seems fully recovered, standing in the fountain, though she seems..... lost, just staring into the light.
  312. <Kirran> Midna?
  313. <DM> *She looks up and turns towards you.
  314. <DM> [Midna]: It's gone. The Fused Shadow, all I had.... I'm no good, Kirran. Leave me be.
  315. <Kirran> So Zant was right then?
  316. <DM> [Midna]: ... what?
  317. <Kirran> He said that he deserved to be king more than you did. That he knew better how to lead the Twili, and that all that would come of your rule was weakness and ruin.
  318. <Kirran> Was I wrong to back you over his planned coup?
  319. <DM> [Midna]: No! He was wrong! And he died for it!
  320. <Kirran> Doesn't seem like he was wrong to me, if when you find yourself over your head, all you've got in you is to give up and die.
  321. <Kirran> Seems to me that you're proving him right, standing here feeling sorry for yourself while people from a world you've never known risk everything to save your realm.
  322. <Kirran> Er...
  323. <DM> *She gives you a very sullen look, then seems rather enraged.
  324. <Kirran> Well, one person anyways. The others, they're...well, they mean well.
  325. * Kirran summons every ounce of his butlering skill.
  326. * Kirran is braced to weather the coming storm.
  327. <DM> [Midna]: Zant would've done anything to get power! He even hurt his own people to get what he wanted! He didn't deserve to be a king!
  328. <DM> [Midna]: How dare you compare him to me!
  329. <DM> [Midna]: And how dare.....
  330. <DM> *She pauses in place.
  331. <DM> [Midna]: No.... I should be thanking you for risking everything to save a broken realm. I.... I don't know what came over me. Sorry.
  332. <Kirran> An apology isn't going to fix this, your majesty. Your people need their queen, more now than ever before.
  333. <DM> [Midna]: My... people?
  334. <Kirran> The very realm is teetering on the brink, and frankly, I don't think my team has what it takes to keep the artifacts central to it's stability out of the hands of mad men.
  335. <Kirran> I know where half your mask is, and we've got the Twilight Mirror reformed.
  336. <Kirran> But I have no way of getting either back from the guy who took them/wants them.
  337. <DM> [Midna]: My mask? Who took them? Please, tell me, I need it...... no..... wait.
  338. <DM> *She stands in reflection, looking to the side, then back to you.
  339. <DM> [Midna]: No. My people need me. That's what matters most.
  340. <Kirran> Then how do we fix this?
  341. <DM> *She looks at the Sol Fountain, then to your Abyss Rings.
  342. <DM> [Midna]: ..... all of the Interlopers..... are they in one spot right now?
  343. <Kirran> I would imagine so. They seem to be more or less congregated at the castle.
  344. <DM> [Midna]: ... this will kill the Sol Fountain... but this may be our only shot.
  345. <Kirran> They've got a dark mass fueled by living Twili there as well.
  346. <DM> *She grimaces, then exits the Sol Fountain and stands by your side.
  347. <DM> [Midna]: Form a portal from the Sol Fountain to where the Interlopers are.
  348. <Kirran> One more warning. The person that stole your mask, and who aims to possess the mirror, he's a master of illusion.
  349. <Kirran> He's been pretending to be, or maybe always was, Medlora.
  350. <Kirran> He's no Interloper, just a very powerful, chaotic man aiming for ultimate power.
  351. <DM> *She doesn't make a motion, but through Spirit Vision, you see her soul go completely still, then flux a few times before returning to.... normal.
  352. <DM> [Midna]: Let's go.
  353. <Kirran> You ready?
  354. * Kirran opens the portal
  355. <Kirran> For the Twili!
  356. <DM> *You open the portal inside the Sol Fountain. It starts draining the light down through the portal, sucking all of the Sols in as well.
  357. <DM> [Midna]: For the Twili..... and peace in the Twilight Realm!
  358. <DM> *Grabbing a Sol Orb in each hand, she leaps on in.
  359. * Kirran follows suit.
  360. <DM> *Kirran, your signature move, in the presence of Midna at her most confident and the Sol Fountain, automatically just charges on its own.
  361. <DM> (Hop back to #zurpg, your entrance will be timed accordingly)
  363. -=MEANWHILE=-
  365. <DM> *Hal and Medlora, the two of you reappear in the Twilight Palace Mirror Room. Across the room, you see Dark Link, Purple, Death Sword, and Scepter. Next to the elevator, the Super Dark Mass has oozed it's way up and is in the room, alongside Red and Blue.
  366. <DM> *And in the other side of the corner, encircling Xanas and the rest of the Twili, are the empowered spirits of Lanayru and Faron.
  367. <DM> [Medlora]: Yoo-hoooooooooo!
  368. <DM> *The shadow portal behind you two closes up.
  369. <DM> *Dark Link looks at you, Hal, then looks at Medlora, specifically the Twilight Mirror.
  370. <DM> [Dark Link]: Ah good, you've brought it back for me to take! And since you're holding it, why I don't need to....... to.......
  371. <DM> *A confused look comes across his face. He holds out his arm, as if trying to grab the Twilight Mirror from a range, but nothing happens.
  372. <DM> [Dark Purple]: Weird, I can't copy those books she's hovering on.
  373. <DM> [Dark Link]: Not the book, you idiot, the shield! I can't copy it! ..... wait, the books too?
  374. <Hal> Looks like we just one-upped you.
  375. <DM> *Medlora smiles gleefully.
  376. <DM> [Medlora]: Ahhh, the perks of having a fake form. Can't copy a fake! ^_^
  377. <DM> [Dark Link]: WHY CAN'T I COPY ANY OF YOUR ITEMS?!
  378. <DM> [Dark Link]: GET THEM! NOW!
  379. <DM> *ALL four Dark Links and Scepter start to move in towards you two.
  380. <DM> *Medlora snaps her fingers. At that moment, another unsuspecting shadow portal appears, behind Death Sword. There, Darte and Corsava, you find you can step on out.
  381. <Darte> "Careful. You'll make a mess."
  382. * Corsava takes camouflages and gets ready to sneak-up on Dark-link
  383. <DM> *Death Sword turns around, seeing the two of you.
  384. <DM> [Death Sword]: What the?!
  385. <DM> *Corsava, you apparently camouflaged in time, such that Death Sword is now focused just on Darte.
  386. * Hal breathes in deeply and casts Sponge on himself.
  387. * Corsava stealth strike
  388. * Darte waves. "Hey there, big guy."
  389. <DM> [Medlora]: Hey, furry guy, block the melee guys. I'll help you with my two shadow hands. I'll blocky the projectiles, yay?
  390. <DM> *Darte, you appear, carrying what appears to be a portal inside of the portal he's in. What?

  515. <DM> *Right as it's about to split outwards to strike the Dark Links, an abyss portal appears underneath it.
  516. <DM> *From it, a massive tidal wave of light appears, with Kirran surfboard riding it. With his Dark Epiphany, he literally phases into the super combo attack, then rematerializes with the combo attack swirling him as the tidal wave of light starts to circle around Kirran.
  517. <DM> [Dark Red]: Woooooooaaaaah surf's up bro!
  519. <DM> [Dark Purple]: Don't worry guys, I got this! Uhhh... who's got something fun uhhh... Scepter, I'm shooting yer staff again!
  520. * Kirran puts his sunglasses back on.
  521. <DM> *Scepter tosses his scepter as Purple, channeling its dark energy. Purple fires the scepter through the Broken Bow, causing the scepter to shoot out a dark beam at Kirran with a drastically increased velocity!
  522. <Kirran> $1d3
  523. <Navi> Kirran: You rolled 1 Die with 3 Sides. Result: 3.
  524. <Kirran> They hit your illusion and miss, allowing you to gain 5 Attack Dice and immediately follow up with a Counterattack.
  525. <DM> *The void beam strikes what appears to be you, then misses and whirls back around, inadvertently joining your army of elements as part of the uber attack.
  526. <DM> [Dark Purple]: Oops.
  527. <Kirran> My turn.
  528. <DM> [Dark Link]: No matter.
  529. <DM> *Dark Link takes control of the Super Dark Mass and pulls it into the way.
  530. <DM> [Dark Link]: Come! Show me what passes for fury upon your misbegotten kind!
  531. <DM> [Medlora]: Well, that is one dead mass of Twili. Oops. Uhhhhh...... crap, I wanted to keep them alive.
  532. <Hal> (It bypasses Cover)
  533. * Kirran lets out a battle cry fit to shake the heavens.
  534. <DM> (GOOD POINT, HAL!)
  535. <Hal> (The Dark Mass should not be able to block that)
  536. * Kirran winds up THE Falcon Punch
  537. <DM> [Dark Link]: Really now, do you intend on killing those you're trying to protect?
  538. <DM> *Kirran, as you wind up the falcon punch, the wave you're riding on dissipates, almost all of it spiraling in on your fist. Enough of the wave remains for you to lightboard-surf off of.
  539. <Hal> (inb4 Dark Link laughs as he forgot the attack bypasses Cover)
  540. <DM> *Also, Lanayru and Faron leave the Twili to focus in on your punch, further enhancing it.
  541. <DM> *The charge in your Golden Gauntlets and your fist is actually physically shaking the room.
  542. <DM> *Scepter calls his scepter back to him, then uses it to channel an extra barrier in front of Dark Link.
  543. <DM> [Dark Link]: This is slightly worrying.
  544. <DM> *Okay, let's see.... Kirran, roll your falcon punch dice with a bonus of......
  545. <DM> *Screw it, just add 100 dice to your attack.
  546. <Kirran> $155d10

  548. <DM> *With that +66 successes, so uhhh...
  549. <DM> 168
  550. <DM> *You culminate the powers of Ice and Lightning through a song of Fire and Ice, black flames amplifying all of your power as you call upon the light of destiny itself to your whim.
  551. <DM> *The negative energy from the void beam flows through you, mixing with the light, instantly charging a Dark Epiphany once more...
  552. <DM> *Right as you're about to strike the Super Dark Mass, you suddenly fly upwards and over it, as a gust of wind shoots you around it.
  553. <DM> [Dark Link]: NANI?!
  554. <DM> *You appear from the heavens, striking down with all of your might with a FALCOOOOOOOON PAAAAAAAAWWWWWWWWWWNCH!

  556. <Navi> DM: You rolled 70 Dice with 10 Sides. Total: 408. Successes: 58.
  557. <DM> *Your epic paunch to pierce the heavens easily shatters through Scepter's barrier. You break through his copy of Gorbus' shield, shattering it like the fake it is.
  558. <DM> *Your paunch not only strikes Dark Link in the face, it noticeably distorts his face through ten frames of extremely unusual animation.
  559. <DM>
  560. <DM> *He gets sent flying backwards, tumbling across the ground repeatedly before slamming into the opposite wall.
  562. <DM> *Kirran, your momentum with your newly charged Dark Epiphany flashes you forward. Would you like to use it?
  563. <Kirran> (Heck yeah I would)
  564. <DM> *You reappear both simultaneously in front and behind him, with him having no chance to defend.

  570. <DM> *You strike him both in the gut and his back, bending his body in unnatural ways.
  571. <DM> *You single-handledly just lariat'd him.
  572. <Hal> (30 minutes to resolve a giant attack)
  573. <DM> *Right as the lightboard you're surfing on disappears, though.... a shadow reaches out from it, grabbing Dark Link's face. She fully steps back into existence, the power of both Lanayru and Faron flowing through her as she channels both Shadow and Light through her body in the epitome of Twilight.
  574. <DM> [Midna]: Get... out... of my... palace!
  575. <DM> $100d10
  576. <Navi> DM: You rolled 100 Dice with 10 Sides. Total: 528. Successes: 63.
  577. <DM> *She channels it all into a single burst, blasting Dark Link into a tumble that slams him not only back into the wall, but actually breaking him THROUGH the wall. You know, that thing you thought was indestructible this whole time.
  578. <Hal> (231 damage coming from Kirran incoming...)
  579. <DM> *Between the impact of Kirran and Midna, he's shoved through the wall and seen rocketing out into the abyss of the Twilight Realm. Team Rocket is blasting off again!
  580. <DM> [Dark Purple]: No! Not the original!
  581. * Corsava sees Midna and grins wide "Middie!"
  582. <DM> [Dark Red]: Yes, the master is gone, we're free to do whatever we want!
  583. <Hal> (Soo... total of 294 damage)
  584. <DM> *Medlora just whistles.
  585. <DM> (Void Beam and Black Arrow amplified to....
  586. <DM> 882 damage
  587. <Hal> (... that one-shot Dark Link)
  588. <DM> *Suddenly, Dark Red blinks out of existence!
  589. <DM> *As does Dark Purple!
  590. <Hal> We.... just killed Dark Link
  591. <Kirran> I told him I'd give him a companion scar.
  592. <Hal> (And the Twili should be freed now)
  593. <Hal> (Err Army)
  594. <DM> *Dark Blue remains in place.
  595. <DM> [Dark Blue]: Wow, that knocked out two of them. Whelp, guess I'm the boss for now. Scepter, matey, we appear to be at a sliiiiight disadvantage. Would you might covering me so we I can Aeternal Darkness us out of heree?
  596. <Hal> Not if we can help it.
  597. <DM> [Medlora]: Aww darn, figures they're soul linked.
  598. <DM> *She points at Death Sword.
  599. <DM> [Medlora]: Let's do some cleeeeaaaaaan uuuuuuup!
  600. <DM> *Death Sword and Dark Blue both move to where Scepter is, as Scepter forms a protective barrier around the three.
  601. <DM> [Death Sword]: I need to heal. Cover me.
  602. <DM> *The Super Dark Mass moves its way over to Death Sword. On the flipside though...
  603. <Hal> (I've used both actions)
  604. <DM> (Round over, move to the next one)
  605. <DM> *The Twili are freed, each of them now having a Sol over their heads.
  606. <Hal> 21h 12m 0rp | +5 Wisdom | +3 Courage | Mirage | +12 Armor
  607. <Corsava> "Xanas, be a darling and get rid of that barrier?"
  608. <Hal> 21h 14m 0rp | +5 Wisdom | +3 Courage | Mirage | +12 Armor
  609. <DM> [Xanas]: I'd like to, but we can't risk shooting our own!
  610. <Darte> "Ahhhh, all freed up. Wanna get this disco started, fellahs?"
  611. <DM> *Death Sword places his hand onto the Super Dark Mass. Looking through it in Spirit Vision, you see one of the souls get siphoned through the mass and into Death Sword.
  612. <DM> [Death Sword]: I'll be good soon, I just need about half of this to heal up.
  613. <Corsava> "Well, he's consuming your people anyway."
  614. <DM> [Dark Blue]: Goody goody, we can protect you, no biggie!
  615. <Corsava> "If that barrier stays, they die for sure."
  616. <DM> [Xanas]: Gah!
  617. <Corsava> "If you break it, you may kill some."
  618. <Hal> We need to get behind them
  619. <DM> *Midna rejoins Xanas and the other Twili, as they prepare Sol Barrages.
  620. * Kirran gives Midna a 90's level awesome thumbs up.
  621. <DM> [Medlora]: Ya know, guys, I can't transport that many of you behind the Super Dark Mass. Shadow portal ain't that big.
  622. <Corsava> "Send me and the shark."
  623. <DM> [Medlora]: On it!
  624. <Hal> Ready Twili?
  625. <Corsava> "The two of us have a way to kill death sword."
  626. <Hal> Fire with me!
  627. <DM> *Corsava and Darte, shadow portals appear beneath you.
  628. <DM> *Do you drop in or try to dodge?
  629. <Corsava> "Here we go, sharky." *reaches for my scithes*
  630. * Hal activates Augmented Protection on his Robe again and readies a Lightning Scourge to fire with the Sol Barrages
  631. <DM> *Midna, using the two Spirits of Light still, channels her power both throughout the Twili and their Sol Orbs, and then into Hal to charge it quicker.
  632. * Darte nods and jumps in.
  633. <DM> [Midna]: I'm sorry for your captivity. Now, Spirits of Light... redeem yourselves and be free!
  634. <DM> *Corsava and Darte, you appear out the other side, where Dark Blue is waiting for you.
  635. <Hal> (I was using Lightning Scourge, which requires no charge)
  636. * Kirran throws both the sols he's got left to the light spirits.
  637. <DM> (...... link that here real fast so I remember what it is)
  638. <DM> [Dark Blue]: Oh please, you're not tricking us with the Shadow Portals again, are you?

  650. <DM> [Scepter]: Death Sword, skip the healing. Use the Dark Mass to engulf us, then heal us.
  651. <DM> *Death Sword nods, then controls the Super Dark Mass. Instead of just covering from one side, it wraps around both Death Sword and Scepter, covering them from all sides.
  652. <Kirran> (How far away is Death Sword from me?)
  653. <DM> (Other side of the room. Nothing you can't traverse.)
  654. <DM> [Xanas]: Dangit! We can't shoot around that!
  655. * Kirran teleports to Death Sword and uses his magic candle to drop an illuminating flame at his feet.
  656. <DM> *Corsava and Darte, a Dark Blue blocks your path, how do you proceed?
  657. <DM> I would say to roll Wisdom, Kirran, but.... it's Death Sword. He's got like 4 Wisdom.
  658. <Kirran> (It's not really an attack so much as a light generating gambit.
  659. <Kirran> )
  660. <DM> *The illuminating flame spreads outwards, throwing Death Sword off his channeling. At that moment, the form of the Super Dark Mass opens up with a few holes.

  792. <Hal> (Scepter's barrier is broken)
  793. <DM> *Dark Blue casts Aeternal Darkness, able to skip its charge-up phase. Though, he's not able to defend against this incoming attack...
  794. <Corsava> "Wow, you color-links are just completely pathetic. You're subservient to Scepter? That's just...It's not even funny, it just kind of makes you lose all respect for the whole 'link' thing."
  795. <DM> [Dark Blue]: WHY YOU-
  796. <DM> *He suddenly freezes in place, as if..... possessed, then returns to using Aeternal Darkness. Looking at his soul, you see both his blue soul..... and the green one from the original Dark Link. Looks like he didn't die afterall.
  797. <Hal> (And the spirits are too busy to stop Aeternal Darkness?)
  798. <DM> $30d10 Death Sword
  799. <Navi> DM: You rolled 30 Dice with 10 Sides. Results: 6, 6, 6, 4, 1, 3, 9, 7, 2, 1, 1, 8, 9, 1, 6, 9, 4, 7, 6, 7, 7, 4, 4, 10, 6, 10, 10, 5, 4 and 6. Total: 169. Successes: 22.

  802. <Hal> (Is there any way to disrupt Aeternal Darkness?)
  803. <DM> [Midna]: We have the Dark Mass held down. Go, Lanayru, Faron!
  804. <DM> *Lanayru and Faron zip over, trying to stop Aeternal Darkness.
  805. <DM> *They focus their light, stopping and reversing the spreading cloud of darkness. The cloud ends up only covering Dark Blue.
  806. <DM> [Dark Blue]: Crap! Death Sword, Scepter, get in here! It's not spreading!
  807. <Corsava> ...light stops the cloud?
  808. <DM> *They try to move, but are blocked as a red fish suddenly materializes out of thin air, zipping between all three of them in a fury of blows!
  809. <Corsava> ...that would have been so useful to know so many times before.
  810. <DM> *Death Sword is dropped to somewhere in the negative tens for Wisdom, if the system allowed it.
  811. <DM> *Scepter tries to pull back his scepter to help deflect the blow, but his staff is overused and he ends up disintegrating from the bouncing spiral of whirling scythes. He tries to hang on, but the Shadow Crystal Blade cancels out his power, cutting him out of existence, ultimately killed by his brother's scythes.
  812. <Corsava> "nut"
  813. <DM> *With Dark Blue struck by the Shadow Crystal Blade, he's unable to expand the cloud from the Aeternal Darkness, zipping out of them with just himself.
  814. <DM> *Death Sword wanders around, vegetable'd and unable to think, completely braindead.
  815. <DM> *Would you all like to charge all of your strongest charge moves and use them simultaneously on him?
  816. * Kirran pokes him with a phase arrow to put the poor bastard out of his misery.
  817. <Corsava> ...huh. Someone should have tried magnetic pulling him out of that cloud.
  818. <DM> *Whelp, too late. Kirran literally just walks up and prods him with the Phase Arrow. With his own darkness cancelled by the strikes from the Shadow Crystal Blade, only fate remains for him...
  819. <DM> *Out of the corner of your eye, you spot him...
  820. * Corsava grabs Dex from wherever he is and attempts to choke Death Sword to death with him as he fades away
  821. <Hal> Now, with Death Sword dead.
  822. <DM> *Glitchzard Dex appears, and with a chuck from Corsava, he's forced into Death Sword's remains. You see him glitch several thousand times across the room in a matter of seconds, even glitching in the blue screen of death several times. Sound disconbobulates into 8-bit madness before reconstituting in his untimely death.
  823. <DM> *Darte, you reappear exactly where Death Sword last one, with a Glitchzard Dex now attached to your foot.
  824. <Kirran> I give you a hamburger
  825. <Corsava> "Sweet. The day is won, the people are saved, and the interloper population is now one."
  826. <DM> *With that, the Super Dark Mass collapses and dissolves, and out from it, the Twili villagers are freed.
  827. * Hal looks around for Medlora
  828. <Corsava> "How about we all turn in for the night?"
  829. <DM> *You hear someone slow clapping. Hal, you see that it's Medlora, doing the slow clap.
  830. <DM> [Medlora]: Whoo! It's the end of the Interlopers! I no longer have to worry about them!
  831. <Darte> "... Lovely. Someone get me some Clonazepam."
  832. <Corsava> "Thanks for the help, B."
  833. * Hal looks into Medlora's soul
  834. <DM> *Darte, you suddenly zip out of existence, then appear behind Medlora, ready to quadruple strike.
  835. <DM> *She smiles, not even bothering to turn and face you.
  836. <Darte> $51d10
  837. <Navi> Darte: You rolled 51 Dice with 10 Sides. Total: 297. Successes: 36.
  838. <DM> [Medlora]: Displace.
  839. <DM> *You strike her! ...... oooooooor a clone of her, as it seems.
  840. * Corsava sighs. "Really? After worrying about being betrayed, you're going to completely undermine your moral position by betraying?"
  841. <DM> *A shadow portal appears from the ground behind you, and she floats on back up.
  842. <DM> [Medlora]: Aww, fishy, what'd ya do that for?
  843. * Darte 's Golden Flash at the end of the slipstream blinks him to her new clone in an instant, and he reaches for the Twilight Mirror.
  844. <DM> [Medlora]: Oh, look at you, still trying.
  845. <Hal> Stop her! Medlora is not Medlora!
  846. <DM> *Darte, roll it!
  847. <Hal> Medlora... is someone else.
  848. <DM> *Midna looks over, about to reach out to try and stop Darte's attempts.
  849. <Hal> She is... Bloodwind.
  850. <DM> *A pair of shadow hands reach up from the ground, trying to block your attempt as she holds the Twilight Mirror up.

  861. <DM> *You not only fail all three, but that constitutes as a COUNTERATTACK!
  862. <Hal> Shut her portal!
  863. <DM> *Your hand ends up ENTERING the mirror, then IMMEDIATELY shoving back out. You feel your arm forcibly ripped off, then forced into your body, scrunching your whole body and causing you to bleed everywhere!
  864. <Corsava> ...
  865. <Corsava> "Yeaaaah, that's about what I expected."
  866. <DM> *You would be dead, but your stance is keeping you alive at 1 heart. Also, your arm rematerializes, literally formed of your own blood.
  867. <Darte> "..........."
  868. <Darte> "oo-oooooooooo--ooooooouccccccchhh"
  869. <Corsava> "It hurts, right? That's how my mark works, and I know it hurts like a fucking bitch."
  870. <DM> [Medlora]: Now, if you'd stop bothering me, you backstabber....
  871. <DM> *She uses her counterattack to use the pair of shadow hands to lift Darte! Roll Power to defend!

  876. <Navi> Darte: You rolled 18 Dice with 10 Sides. Results: 6, 1, 8, 3, 3, 3, 8, 8, 2, 5, 5, 5, 1, 10, 7, 6, 7 and 7. Total: 95. Successes: 13.
  877. <DM> *Darte, you are lifted into the air, then chucked into Hal!
  878. <DM> [Medlora]: Here, catch!
  879. <DM> *Darte is chucked at you more like a flung body, not really an actual attack.
  880. * Hal catches Darte
  881. <Kirran> Midna, if you let her have the mirror, you'll never see it again.
  882. <Hal> (brb)
  883. <DM> [Medlora]: Thankee! See, I have no intention of hurting you, furry guy! You helped me, so you're good, furry guy!
  884. <Kirran> Just look at her reflection in it if you don't believe me.
  885. * Darte gives a shaky, literal blood thumbs up.
  886. <DM> *Midna walks over, halfway to Medlora. She repossesses Lanayru and Faron, carrying a Sol Orb in each hand.
  887. <DM> [Midna]: Medlora... this... this isn't you. Come back to me. Please.
  888. <DM> [Medlora]: But I am Medlora! I am me!
  889. <DM> [Medlora]: As far as anyone was concerned for about the last year, at least...
  890. <DM> [Midna]: The last... year? What do you mean?
  891. <DM> [Midna]: WHERE'S MY MEDLORA?!
  892. <DM> [Medlora]: .... well, when I took on this guise, she uhh... wasn't being very cooperative. Sorry, even tried to Twilight Fairy her, didn't work so well. Sowwwy. Will you forgive me, my love?
  893. * Corsava "Ouch...wait, what?"
  894. <DM> *Rage completely fills Midna's face as she scrunches a Sol Orb in each hand, readying her own falcon punches.
  895. <Corsava> "B, you may want to get out of here. Just...word to the wise."
  896. <DM> [Medlora]: For the record, Corsavy, I would've let you romance her, too. I'm not that cruel.
  897. <DM> [Medlora]: Admittedly, yeah that uhh..... seems like a good idea.
  898. <Hal> Not if we can help it!
  899. <DM> [Medlora]: Actually, you know when I said I couldn't mass portal?
  900. <DM> [Medlora]: I lied.
  901. <Corsava> "and here we were having such a nice chat over interloper corpses."
  902. <DM> *She taps her head, but her finger gets stopped. The illusion of invisibility and illusion of creation both break, revealing her to be wearing the full Fused Shadow.
  903. <Hal> (Who is where and who is Medlora seeing?)
  904. <DM> *At that point, a massive Shadow Portal appears below all of the Twili, catching Midna at the edge of it.
  905. <Corsava> (Medlora and Midna are a thing, apparently.)
  906. * Hal grabs Midna and pulls her out of the portal)
  907. <Hal> (away)
  908. <Corsava> (But also potentially Midna and Corsava? And also Corsava and Medlora?)
  909. <DM> *Hal, you manage to get you and Midna away, but Xanas and the rest of the Twili are whisked away.
  910. <Corsava> (It's very confusing and we're going to need triples therapy)
  911. <DM> [Medlora]: Okay, that evens the odds a bit. No worries, they're just in the prison.
  913. <DM> *You as a party are all grouped together, at this point.
  914. <Hal> Folks. Looks like we are going to be fighting Bloodwind.
  915. <Corsava> "So, B, what *exactly* is going on with you and Midna? Your claim seems rather dubious at the moment."
  916. <DM> *Medlora is on the other side of the room, with Corsava at her side.
  917. <DM> [Medlora]: Wellllll relationships are complicated. No worries, she still loves me.
  918. <DM> *She blows a kiss in Midna's direction.
  919. <Corsava> "To be fair, I've never been one to give up on a hopeless cause."
  920. * Kirran moves away from the others, relatively speaking.
  921. <DM> [Medlora]: Now, looks like it's us two against.... wait. Wait wait waaaaaaait a minute... I didn't come here to fight you all!
  922. * Darte slides off of Hal.
  923. <Darte> 1h12m | 17 Charges (+5AD, SUPER HOT) | +21AD (Blood Scale) | Block
  924. <DM> [Medlora]: You guys already got me what I wanted, the Twilight Mirror! .... or, by its real name: The Fierce Deity Shield
  925. <Hal> Now, what will you be doing now?
  926. <DM> [Medlora]: Well, this shield is capable of transporting you all out. I fully intend on getting you all out of the Twilight Realm.
  927. <DM> [Medlora]: Oh, yes, one more thing! Kirran, return that book to its owner, Sahasrahla in Kakariko Village, I've read through it. Though, while I'm at it....
  928. <DM> [Medlora]: As a bonus gift, how bout I tell you all where the Master Sword is? Hmm? Hmmmmmmmmm?
  929. <Darte> "Ah, yes. More fun with your errand boys, I suppose."
  930. <Kirran> Blood, I wouldn't believe you even if you gave me a map with Link's signature on it.
  931. <Hal> Bloodwind... I must commend you for this plan you managed to hatch out.
  932. * Darte flops away from the others.
  933. <DM> [Medlora]: That darn book just gave some reeeaaaaally vague clues, but I think I figured it out. Let's see... said it was... "in a land frozen in time".... annnnnd "in the deepest pit amidst the tallest peak". Something cryptic like that.
  934. <Hal> Your entire goal with sending us to the Twilight Realm was so you can use us to get you the shield.
  935. <DM> [Medlora]: Annnnnd it worked!
  936. <DM> [Medlora]: See? You didn't even have to fight me for it. You still don't! I really have no intention of fighting you all, unless you're just desperate for a fight.
  937. <Hal> I don't believe a fight will work
  938. <Darte> "Well, I do have twenty one more attack dice and a real taste for blood. Wait, that's just my tongue..."
  939. <DM> [Medlora]: Come now, you even killed three of the top dawg Interlopers!
  940. <Hal> And Dark Link will be next
  941. <DM> [Medlora]: Yep! Sooooo, whatcha say, got any other requests for a reward? You did do more than I wanted, afterall. Twould only be fair that return the favor with a reward!
  942. <Hal> It would only be fair
  943. <DM> [Medlora]: You know, more than just getting you all out of here. Speaking of which...
  944. <DM> *She channels a beam with the Twilight Mirror. The black and teal beam strikes the ground, opening up a portal. Through it, you can see landmarks of Hyrule.
  945. <DM> [Medlora]: There you go! Your way back. So, whatcha want?
  946. <DM> [Medlora]: For the record, my artifacts are off limits!
  947. <Hal> An Ascended Spell scroll.
  948. <DM> [Medlora]: ...... how'd ya know I had one?
  949. <Darte> "How about an express line to your ass, so I can put this sword up it?"
  950. <DM> [Medlora]: Fiiiine...... lemme just.... hang on, I gotta undo the incarnation. So long, Medlora!
  951. <Hal> Darte, I doubt you want Bloodwind to eviscerate you on the spot.
  952. * Corsava coughs once into her fist and looks awkwardly off screen
  953. <DM> *She pulls out a white gem, gleaming with different colors. She then squishes it, and moments later, the form of Medlora fades away like a reflection of water that was interrupted.
  954. <DM> *Out from it, the fully deep red cloaked form of Bloodwind appears, no longer floating on a stack of books. He's still carrying the Twilight Mirror as a shield, and has the Fused Shadow equipped over his head.... not that you could ever see what was beneath his hood other than darkness anyways.
  955. <DM> *He reaches into his inventory, then tosses the scroll at Hal.
  956. <Hal> Thank you.
  957. <DM> [Bloodwind]: There you go, one Ascended Spell scroll for you. What about you, Darte? Or you, Kirran?
  958. <Corsava> "Someone ask to see his face"
  959. * Darte only glares at Bloodwind. "Sure, a gift. Anything you've got to offer is poison."
  960. <DM> [Bloodwind]: Aww, but furry guy appreciated my gift, and he's not poisoned.
  961. * Kirran puts on his stone mask and pulls off his regular face covering.
  962. <DM> *Kirran, with no one having seen your real face, and standing completely still, you are fully invisible. And with Majora's Incarnation temporarily out of service..... he can't sense you.
  963. <DM> *Well, until you move.
  964. <DM> *Midna scoots over to where Kirran...... is? Was?
  965. <DM> [Bloodwind]: ...... wait, where'd Kirran go?
  966. <DM> [Bloodwind]: Did he teleport away? I can't see him.
  967. * Corsava puts a hand on his wrist
  968. <Hal> Darn it where did he go.
  969. <DM> [Bloodwind]: Oh, Midna, you know what... I've got a gift for you.
  970. <DM> *He points at the Fused Shadow Mask on his head.
  971. <Corsava> (Bloodwind's, since she's adjacent to him)
  972. <DM> [Bloodwind]: This thing's kinda sucky in the Light World. You can have it back.
  973. <DM> [Midna]: I have no need of your rotten charity, you murderer.
  974. * Kirran bides his time
  975. <DM> [Bloodwind]: Oh come on, why do people call me a murderer? I've barely killed anyone! Seriously, these guys have a waaaay higher kill count than I do!
  976. <DM> [Bloodwind]: Bleh. On second thought, I'll keep it.
  977. <DM> [Bloodwind]: Or, better yet...
  978. <DM> *Bloodwind grabs the Fused Shadow Mask... and sticks it on Corsava's face instead!
  979. <Kirran> (is he looking at me or Midna?)
  980. <DM> (At Corsava at the moment)
  981. <DM> [Bloodwind]: Since you've served me so well and kept me safe all this time... have a little reward!
  982. * Kirran teleports quickly with Midna in tow behind Corsava and Bloodwind
  983. * Corsava keeps a hand on him at all times "Strange feeling...the mask..."
  984. <DM> *Bloodwind fully materializes the rest of his gear, including the Majora's Mask on his face now as he wields both the Fierce Deity Sword and the Twilight Mirror.
  985. <DM> [Bloodwind]: So... the Sheikah can't trust me afterall. Corsava, use those five shadow hands and surround us quickly.
  986. <Corsava> "Very well."
  987. * Corsava envelops us in a barrier of hands
  988. <DM> *Kirran, roll for sneak attack on Bloodwind! You have a +10 bonus on this!
  989. <DM> *Midna places her hand on the barrier of hands. With her innate connection of the Fused Shadow, she forces them away.

  1015. <Corsava> "Peace."
  1017. -=MEANWHILE=-
  1019. <DM> *Corsava, you reappear with Bloodwind..... though you're missing your mask.
  1020. <DM> [Bloodwind]: Darn, she must've grabbed your shadow hands and held the mask in place.
  1021. <Corsava> "Well, we're headed to the light world anyway, right?"
  1022. <Corsava> Besides, I wouldn't be able to wield it effectively against her anyway. She's too attuned to it.
  1023. <DM> *A shadow portal appears nearby.
  1024. <DM> [Bloodwind]: That we are. Alright, we're outta here.
  1025. <DM> *He aims the Twilight Mirror below him, then uses it to open a portal out of the Twilight Realm.
  1026. * Corsava takes one of my swords and extends it against the portal, so that anyone who enters will be skewered
  1027. <Corsava> It's one of my normal swords
  1028. <Corsava> the white sword
  1029. <Corsava> "Alrighty."
  1030. <Corsava> (the shadow portal, not the mirror portal)
  1031. * Corsava hops through the mirror portal with him
  1032. <DM> *You fall through, falling for what feels like ages... just like getting Doctor Strange'd.
  1034. -=MEANWHILE=-
  1036. <DM> *Something plops onto the ground, though.
  1037. <Kirran> Corsava, I'm going to kill you before this is all over.
  1038. <DM> *The Fused Shadow Mask lies there.
  1039. * Kirran picks it up and hands it to Midna before any more shenanagins occur.
  1040. <DM> *Midna equips it, then immediately forms a shadow portal.
  1041. <Hal> Quick! Jump in!
  1042. <DM> *She tries to reach through it with shadow hands, but they end up coming right back out, as she closes the portal.
  1043. <DM> [Midna]: Darn. Just barely missed him!
  1044. <Hal> But what about the mirror?
  1045. <DM> *A sword gets pulled back from one of the shadow hands.
  1046. <DM> *Nearby, the portal opened by Bloodwind with the Twilight Mirror is still there, though starting to dwindle slightly.
  1047. * Darte spits to one side. "Just fantastic."
  1048. <Hal> (Midna closed the portal)
  1049. <DM> *She turns to you all.
  1050. <Hal> We need to give chase.
  1051. <DM> [Midna]: Does that portal lead to where Bloodwind is?
  1052. <Kirran> We wouldn't stand a chance. He's armed to the teeth with Majora's and Fierce Diety's artifacts.
  1053. <Hal> The portal will lead to the Light World. Bloodwind is there, but we don't stand a chance at fighting
  1054. <Kirran> Who knows? The fact that he was able to be simultaneously in the twilight and light realms is disturbing enough.
  1055. * Darte sits up, slumping over. "So we saved the Twili. Fantastic. Now we just wait for him to do who-knows-what with those things."
  1056. <DM> [Midna]: Then don't chase him.
  1057. <Hal> We need to escape the Twilight Realm too
  1058. <DM> *She uses her shadow hands to keep the Twilight Mirror portal pried open.
  1059. <Kirran> He's not that kind of villain Darte. He's in it for himself, always has been, always will be.
  1060. <Hal> We must make haste. This is our chance to escape.
  1061. <DM> [Midna]: You all.... I.... you've done much for us.
  1062. <DM> [Midna]: Without you, we'd be stuck fighting the Interlopers, likely losing. Now, we stand united, stronger than before.
  1063. <Hal> And the Interlopers nearly destroyed
  1064. <DM> *She channels both Lanayru and Faron out.
  1065. <DM> [Lanayru]: Thank you, Midna. I pray you're able to finish what you started with Dark Link. Now that a portal leads back... I must go now.
  1066. <DM> [Lanayru]: To Hyrule City where my other half remains.
  1067. <Hal> Kirran, Darte?
  1068. <Kirran> Yes?
  1069. <Hal> Shall we take the portal and leave the Twilight Realm?
  1070. <Hal> (Also what happened with Gorbus' soul?)
  1071. <DM> *The snake form of Lanayru swirls around you all then heads through the portal.
  1072. * Darte pushes himself to his feet. "Right. Suppose we should. Assuming we're all okay with leaving Dark Link as unfinished business?"
  1073. <DM> *Faron disappears for a moment... then returns, with the spirit of Gorbus.
  1074. <Hal> What other chance will we get of getting out of here?
  1075. <DM> [Faron]: I shall take Gorbus back to his home, where one of his own can put him at peace.
  1076. <Hal> The mirror is like our only way of getting out of here
  1077. <DM> [Faron]: It was an honor fighting alongside all of you.
  1078. <Kirran> Dark Link is eternal. Even if we kill him, he'll just come back.
  1079. <DM> *With that, Faron disappears through the portal with the spirit of Gorbus.
  1080. <DM> [Midna]: No, Dark Link can be killed...
  1081. <DM> [Midna]: But to do so....
  1082. <DM> [Midna]: You all warned me of Fierce Deity earlier. Is he as malicious as the Interlopers themselves?
  1083. <Kirran> Can't say for sure. I imagine he could be. He's certainly quite mad, if nothing else.
  1084. <Hal> Fierce Deity wants control over everything.
  1085. <DM> [Midna]: Then.... if our god, Fierce Deity were to..... to perish... Dark Link would not be able to come back. He would die, once and for all, ending the Interlopers.
  1086. <Kirran> I fear it may come to that in the end. Him and Majora seem to have a shadow war going on, and in the middle is Bloodwind, hoovering up their artifacts for himself.
  1087. <Kirran> And I can't say I even kind of understand what that one's endgame looks like.
  1088. <Darte> "Something tells me it's not a new world of sunshine and rainbows and nice, clean streams."
  1089. <Hal> It's a gloomy world held under the absolute tyrannical control of the god.
  1090. <Hal> And I can only imagine Happy Masked Man is the same.
  1091. <DM> [Midna]: Wait, are those two aligned together?
  1092. <Hal> They are completely different.
  1093. <Kirran> I think Happy Mask is Majora's whipping boy.
  1094. <Hal> But they play the same role for their respective gods
  1095. <Hal> Dark Link is Fierce Deity's underling. Masked Man is Majora's
  1096. <DM> [Midna]: No, I mean... the Mask Man, and Med-... Bloodwind.
  1097. <Kirran> No, Bloodwind works for himself.
  1098. <Kirran> Only he knows what it is he hopes to accomplish. Does he want to kill the gods? Tame them? Become one himself?
  1099. <Darte> "All of the above, likely."
  1100. <Hal> I believe he will search for the ultimate power
  1101. <Hal> The latter, becoming one himself, may be his eventual goal.
  1102. <DM> [Midna]: Then... why'd he tell you about this... Master Sword? Like he wants you to find it.
  1103. <Hal> Presumably... for him to take it for himself
  1104. <DM> [Midna]: Is it another artifact belonging to Fierce Deity or Majora?
  1105. <Kirran> I don't know. He can't wield it. It's the sword of evil's bane.
  1106. <Hal> Master Sword is neither
  1107. <Kirran> No hands stained in blood could ever hope to touch it.
  1108. <Hal> No hands stained in blood? That would rule us all out.
  1109. <Kirran> Most likely, yes.
  1110. <Kirran> But I think he'd like to know where it is in play, should his game come to fruition.
  1111. <DM> (DM's note, anyone figured out where it is based on those two hints from earlier?)
  1112. <Corsava> (It's in your house)
  1113. <Hal> (Orithan doesn't count)
  1114. <DM> (Eagle Tower is a nope)
  1115. <Hal> (Hint: It's nowhere in Koholint)
  1116. <DM> (Land frozen in time. Hint: Take that literally.)
  1117. <DM> (The deepest pit next to the highest peak. Hint: More wordplay!)
  1118. <DM> (Kirran shot me a guess of Stone Tower. That would be right...... except Stone Tower got exploded by Sephiroth. Wrong one.)
  1119. <Hal> (I think this is starting to get a bit obvious here...)
  1120. <Corsava> (Is it in one of the alternate timelines?)
  1121. * DM has kicked Corsava from #zurpg (DM)
  1122. <DM> *Midna starts struggling to hold the portal open.
  1123. <Hal> Lets's make haste and exit now!
  1124. * Hal exits the Twilight Realm via portal, stage left
  1125. <DM> [Midna]: I hope... we can meet again, before the final conflict. As you came to our aid... we shall come to yours someday. I promise it. We'll find a way!
  1126. <Hal> It has been a pleasure working with Midna and all the Twili
  1127. <Kirran> Midna. Thanks. You give me hope my own world will stand strong in the face of this war.
  1128. <DM> *She nods back to you.
  1129. * Darte sighs, stopping by Midna as he shuffles towards the portal. "I... I'm sorry for your losses, your majesty. And Medlora. Really, I am. Wish Bloodwind hadn't tangled any of... well. Farewell, and may we meet again in better times."
  1130. <DM> [Midna]: Oh don't you worry. I'm going to personally strangle him myself. Even if you kill him, I'll kill him again, even if he's dead.
  1131. <DM> *The portal starts to close.
  1132. <Kirran> About Medlora though. The queen of the fairies, she might be free of the darkness' influence, now that the Interlopers are weakened. Just a a though.
  1133. <DM> [Midna]: ... perhaps.
  1134. <DM> [Midna]: Farewell, Warriors of Light!
  1135. * Kirran salutes and takes the portal.
  1136. * Darte ducks out.
  1137. <DM> *You all dive into the portal, falling for ages and ages...
  1138. <DM> *Literally this -
  1139. <DM> *Eventually, you all wake back up... in Kakariko Village! For the first time in what feels like ages, the warmth of the sun itself shines down upon ye all. You're no longer in a land of perpetual twilight and darkness.
  1140. <DM> *Kirran, roll your usual.
  1141. <Kirran> $1d3
  1142. <Navi> Kirran: You rolled 1 Die with 3 Sides. Result: 3.
  1143. <Kirran> Too exhausted to dodge.
  1144. <DM> *Kirran, you land in the pile with Darte and Hal.
  1145. <Hal> The sun... I can finally embrace it.
  1146. <Kirran> (Hal bursts into flame)
  1147. <Darte> "Welcome to the clumsy crew. Also, I only had one heart. You've landed on me and killed me."
  1148. * DM sets Hal on fire. Just for a moment.
  1149. <DM> *Over you, the face of Impa appears overhead. She looks down at you all, raising an eyebrow.
  1150. * Hal extinguishes the flame
  1151. <DM> [Impa]: ... I feel like I missed something.
  1152. <Hal> How long has it been?
  1153. <DM> *Darte, you actually did die. RIP.
  1154. <DM> *Your body splatters, then reconstitutes itself.... and back to its blue skin, though half-covered in your own blood.
  1155. <Kirran> More than you know Boss.
  1156. <DM> *She points in the direction of Lon Lon Ranch.
  1157. * Hal finds some conviently placed Bone Dust and scatters over it to Darte.
  1158. <DM> *Looking over in the direction of Lon Lon Ranch, there appears to be great, black stormcloud, almost pitch black.
  1159. * Darte suddenly feels like his flask can hold more charges.
  1160. <DM> *Around you, you notice there's more people than usual. Actually, they look like they're from Lon Lon...
  1161. <DM> [Impa]: That storm has been hovering over Lon Lon for some time now. Is it Interloper based? What happened over where you were?
  1162. <Hal> We were trapped inside the Twilight Realm
  1163. <DM> [Impa]: I noticed. I was able to reach out to Kirran momentarily.
  1164. * Kirran explains what happened since the last time they spoke.
  1165. <Hal> Bloodwind played us big time. He sent us in to use us to get the Mirror of Twilight
  1166. <Hal> Which turned out to be the Fierce Deity shield
  1167. <Hal> And so he took it.
  1168. <DM> *Kirran rambles off a whooooooole lot of exposition. Nearby, Sahasrahla listens in.
  1169. <DM> [Impa]: I... see.
  1170. <DM> [Impa]: At least... the Interlopers are mostly wiped out. But.... with that much power... I'm not-
  1171. <DM> [Sahasrahla]: All is not lost, young Impa.
  1172. <DM> *The old man, who looks older than time itself, walks on over to you, one step at a time with a cane.
  1173. <DM> [Impa]: Young?!
  1174. * Corsava (~Anthony@ has left (Leaving)
  1175. * Hal quickly turns around for Mima using Spirit Vision... only to see that she is not around.
  1176. <Hal> ...It appears Mima has not returned.
  1177. <DM> [Sahasrahla]: You all have undergone a massive trial, one that has gained you allies, and honed who your true enemy is.
  1178. <DM> [Sahasrahla]: Now is not the time to go after him.
  1179. <Hal> I fear for the worst. The Oath of the Windfish may still have her. I must go in to save her-
  1180. <DM> [Sahasrahla]: Wait, Hal. Go with Kirran.
  1181. <Hal> I shall.
  1182. <Kirran> Damn. Not even time for a shower and a nap.
  1183. <DM> [Sahrasrahla]: Young Impa... it is time for a new age of Sages.
  1184. <DM> [Impa]: W.... what?
  1185. <Hal> Kirran. Does this mean we are going to be undertaking the Shiekah Trials Mk. 2?
  1186. <Kirran> Goddesses, I hope not.
  1187. <Darte> "No more floor fighting, please."
  1188. <DM> [Sahasrahla]: To be blunt, I can see Kirran has already surpassed you... but I can see that he still has much to learn from you. Teach him all there is to be Sheikah... and more.
  1189. <DM> [Sahasrahla]: Hal, before you can save your friend, you must first face the darkness instead of you. Go with Kirran in Impa's teachings.
  1190. <DM> *He turns to you, Darte.
  1191. * Harvey rushes up to Hal, relieved to see that he had returned.
  1192. <Harvey> "Hal!
  1193. <DM> [Sahasrahla]: As for you... you look to be a warrior that's far surpassed Ruto. Prove yourself at Zora's Domain... and become the new Sage of Water.
  1194. * Hal turns around to face Harvey. "Harvey!"
  1195. <Harvey> Where in the world have you been?
  1196. * Darte pushes upright again, tilting his head. "... Sage, huh? You think I'm fit for that, after all the mess I've made?"
  1197. <Hal> Long story, will tell you when I get the chance. I've got a new mission to do.
  1198. <Hal> Any whereabouts of where Mima is?
  1199. <Harvey> She... was rescued.
  1200. <Harvey> Wolfgang, Friann and Corsava came and busted the cult.
  1201. * Hal does a double-take, flustered at the mention of Corsava.
  1202. * Kirran clinches his fist.
  1203. <Hal> Corsava? What in the Windfish word was she doing there?
  1204. <Harvey> I have no idea, but Corsava has not been seen since.
  1205. <Kirran> And won't be, if I have anything to do with it.
  1206. * Darte turns at word of Corsava. "... Guess we'll have to keep a sharp eye. Just what we needed; giving our enemy more allies."
  1207. <Harvey> Mima has taken off again. This time to Spryte Village. She says that there was a Nightmare epidemic going on there.
  1208. * Hal sighed in relief. "Phew. I was worried for a moment."
  1209. <DM> [Impa]: I'm not ready to pass on my duties as the Shadow Sage, yet.
  1210. <DM> [Sahasrahla]: Then let him prove it. Let him prove, between which of you, who should be the Shadow Sage.
  1211. <DM> [Sahasrahla]: Now, if you'll excuse me... I have a book I need to find. Where'd I put that darn thing...
  1212. <DM> *Sahasrahla goes back into his house, leaving an unsteady Impa before you, Kirran.
  1213. <Kirran> Um, don't I get a say in whether I want to be a sage or not?
  1214. * Kirran sits down on the grass.
  1215. <DM> [Impa]: If you don't want it, you can quit now.
  1216. <Kirran> I've still got a friend I need to save.
  1217. <DM> *You recall saying similar words to Midna when she'd about given up.
  1218. * Darte walks over to Kirran and sits beside him with a sigh. "Can't say I feel like a proper fit, either. But with that bastard on the loose, I'm guessing he'll be targeting Impa. You can be the spare."
  1219. <Hal> I'd probably end up being a Elemental Sage.
  1220. <DM> *Hal, that scroll you got.... it's the real deal.
  1221. <Kirran> It's not that, boss. You know I'd never walk away from my duties. It's just...I feel like I've got at least a little more to do before trying to take on something that...locked in.
  1222. <DM> [Impa]: You don't have to be the Shadow Sage, Kirran. And... I'm not sure I'm ready to hand that duty over, myself.
  1223. <Hal> It seems like my signature power has seen the light of day.
  1224. <DM> [Impa]: ... but for now... we can save Raine.
  1225. <DM> *She holds out her hand to you.
  1226. * Kirran takes it and smiles.
  1227. <Hal> I look forward learning how to improve it. It seems to have fallen behind the times.
  1228. <DM> *You rip off her hand and- oh, misread.
  1229. <Darte> "Seems we've all got some learning to do, and fast. Storm's a-comin'."
  1230. <DM> *You're about to party split. Do you part ways or just put on sunglasses, put your backs to each other, and walk away from each other, like true dudes?
  1231. * Hal looks over to Harvey.
  1232. <Hal> "Send a message to Silvio. Tell him that I am ready to prove him wrong!"
  1233. <Darte> "... Where should we meet back up?"
  1234. <Harvey> With gratitude
  1235. <Harvey> And with that we shall part
  1236. <DM> [Impa]: Worry not, Darte. We're Sheikah. We'll find you.
  1237. * Hal salutes to Harvey
  1238. * Harvey turns around and walks off
  1239. * Hal looks back to Darte and Kirran
  1240. <Hal> And looks like we will part ways too Darte.
  1241. * Darte shrugs. "Right. If I can help in your training, you know where to find me, I hope. Can't afford to leave any of us behind."
  1242. * Darte waves and starts heading towards the nearest body of water.
  1243. <Hal> Kirran, looks like it is the two of us and Impa now.
  1244. <DM> *You part ways, having just endured a vacation of darkness and despair over a really long period of time. As you head off to your new destinations...... you realize one more thing.
  1245. <Hal> [QUEST END]?
  1246. <DM> *None of you have slept at all this whole time. All of you simultaneously flop into the ground, collapsing as you get pwned by the end of the quest.
  1247. <DM> -=SESSION END=-
  1248. <DM> -=QUEST END=-
  1249. <Kirran> $1d3
  1250. <Navi> Kirran: You rolled 1 Die with 3 Sides. Result: 1.
  1251. * Darte gurgles in said body of water, turning it into a literal bloody stream.
  1252. <DM> *Kirran, you manage to dodge sleep..... and the ending of the quest itself.
  1253. <Kirran> Sheikah don't need sleep.
  1254. <DM> *So, now that you're awake in no man's land, whatcha wanna do next?
  1255. <Kirran> (Go to Disneyland, obviously!)
  1256. <DM> *And thus Kirran goes to Disneyland!
  1257. <DM> -=THE END=-
  1258. <Darte>
  1260. -=MEANWHILE=-
  1263. <DM> *Eventually, you land in a place, much, much brighter. The sun reflects off your shield as course sand blows through your hair. You look around, and you're in Gerudo Desert, with the gates of Gerudo Fortress in sight.
  1264. <Corsava> (Also, I want to have written a note and tucked it into the sword's handle. It'll be addressed to Midna, apologizing for the deception, and explaining that while I understand her anger, we did our best to protect the Twili, and keep her safe, and that I hope she can forgive us.)
  1265. <DM> (... fine)
  1266. <Corsava> "Thanks. So, where to from here?"
  1267. * Corsava takes a cloth and wraps it around my right arm and hand
  1268. <Corsava> "And are you ever going to tell me what's going on with you and Midna?"
  1269. <DM> [Bloodwind]: Me and Midna? Hey, Medlora was already in a relationship with her when I took her place. I thought little of it, but.... she grew on me.
  1270. <DM> [Bloodwind]: As for here, well....
  1271. <DM> *Using the Fierce Deity sword, he points at the mark on your hand.
  1272. * Corsava unwraps the cloth so he can see it
  1273. <Corsava> "Sorry, I'm used to hiding this...especially here."
  1274. <DM> [Bloodwind]: We're going to begin your journey to truly evolve you... to surpass Ganondorf, and all the Gerudo kings before him.
  1275. * Corsava looks up at him with somewhat wide eyes
  1276. <DM> *You can't see his face, but you can imagine him smiling back.
  1277. <Corsava> "Thank you."
  1278. <DM> [Bloodwind]: Now, off we go to find the graves of Koume and Kotake, the dark witches that gave Ganondorf his power in the first place!
  1279. * Corsava nods to him and draws out the twilight scope
  1280. <DM> [Bloodwind]: Ooh, nifty!
  1281. <Corsava> "This will help us to keep an eye on the distance. Any distance."
  1282. <DM> *You look around, but all you can see are sand, hills, and sandhills.
  1283. <DM> *Well, and the Gerudo Fortress gates, but otherwise... nothing really.
  1284. <Corsava> "Do you know the way?"
  1285. <DM>
  1286. <DM> [Bloodwind]: Well... it's somewhere in this darn desert. But... we're going to Gerudo Fortress first.
  1287. * Corsava wraps the mark back up, and does her best to cover her face.
  1288. <DM> [Bloodwind]: Off we go to find the Lens of Truth!
  1289. <DM> *The two of you head off across the desert, the sun beating down on both of you, as the coarse and rough sand gets everywhere...
  1290. <Corsava> "Have you been to the Fortress before?"
  1291. <Corsava> "Voe, what am I saying? Of course you haven't!"
  1292. <DM> [Bloodwind]: Once or twice.
  1293. <DM> [Bloodwind]: That nimrod Agahnim was still running the place.
  1294. <Corsava> "Really? I imagine disguising yourself wasn't too hard."
  1295. <DM> [Bloodwind]: Didn't have to.
  1296. <Corsava> "But...voe aren't allowed in"
  1297. <DM> *He pats you on the head.
  1298. <Corsava> "It's literally the only law that's actually on the books"
  1299. <Corsava> "Everything else is informal!
  1300. <DM> [Bloodwind]: They can't tell if darkness is covering my face.
  1301. <DM> *He cases Illusion of Sound, then speaks, except he sounds like a woman.
  1302. <DM> [Bloodwind]: As far anyone knows, I'm not a voe.
  1303. * Corsava grins "nice"
  1304. <Corsava> "Well, then lead the way, I suppose. Unless my mark is how we're tracking it. In which case, I need to figure out how to make that work."
  1305. <DM> *He cancels the illusion.
  1306. <DM> [Bloodwind]: Onwards!
