  1. <WindStrike> *Last time on ZURPG! With a mission by Xanas to go acquire one of the Twilight Mirror Shards, you headed to the Floating Ruins, an island in the sky surrounded by floating, magnetic rocks. Using shenanigans, you got up there, albeit with some fatalities. Checking out an abandoned Twilight building, you acquire some Magnetic Gloves, letting you do magnetic stuff. You encounter a shady Hylian there who shouldn't be there, and is thus really shady just by being there. You also checked out a room with floating mirror shards and a broken great scope, acquiring a Twilight Scope in the process. You then survived an encounter with a Shadow Beast, shortly followed by Dex crushing it with a magnetic meteor to the face.
  2. <DM> -=SESSION START=-
  3. <DM> *Just as quickly as Dex had crushed the Shadow Beast with a falling magnetic meteor, his body seems to vanish into nothingness, whisked away by the loading screen as it zips by.
  4. <Hal> (Loading Screen is the true killer)
  5. * Corsava blinks
  6. <Corsava> "Where did the newt go?"
  7. * DM high-fives Corsava.
  8. * Hal is still in the room with Harry
  9. <DM> *Dusty-clothed Harry is still huddling beneath his arms.
  10. <DM> *Also nearby, a Kirran appears from the darkness. He's bathed in shadows initially, just like an Interloper.
  11. <Kirran> "Hey guys, watch this!"
  12. * Corsava inspects the area where Dex was. "Is it a portal?"
  13. * Kirran throws his arms to the side and flings all the shadow off in one go.
  14. <DM> [Harry]: Wh-wh-wha?! Wh-what are you?!
  15. <DM> *Harry backs himself into a corner, scampering backwards.
  16. <DM> *Out from under the veil of shadows, a Sheikah appears.
  17. <DM> [Harry]: Oh! You had me worried! It's just a Sheikah!
  18. <Kirran> At your service.
  19. <Kirran> Who are you again? And more importantly, where the heck are we?
  20. <DM> *Kirran, you see some dude covered head to toe in dust with squinty eyes and frazzled orange hair.
  21. <DM> *He tries to do a courtesy bow, but his own hunger nearly topples him.
  22. * Darte squints at Kirran... squintily.
  23. <DM> [Harry]: H-Harry, a-a-at your service... ugh. If I may, who might you be?
  24. <Kirran> I'm with these guys, usually.
  25. <DM> *Corsava, as you're inspecting said area, you hear another screech from the north.
  26. <Corsava> "Oh shit!"
  27. <DM> *Same place that other beast came from.
  28. <Kirran> Except when I'm not, like earlier. But I can't account for that.
  29. <DM> *The rest of you very noticeably hear this screech.
  30. <Kirran> Felt like I was staring at a broken windows, but then the feeling passed and I was here.
  31. <Darte> "Look, touching reunion and all, but not the place for it, I think..."
  32. <DM> *The fourth wall does a double take next to Kirran before reorienting itself as one of the normal walls.
  33. * Kirran cocks his head to one side.
  34. <Kirran> I sense there was a presence here. Did you guys rejoin up with Dex while I was gone. It smells like shenanigans around here.
  35. <DM> *Corsava, the screeching sound is.... seeming to hold its place. Whatever is in that dark passage isn't moving towards you, oddly.
  36. * Corsava bites her lip softly
  37. <Darte> "Hmph. How'd you guess? Come on, this room's giving me the creeps. Out the way we came in, and away from that screechthing."
  38. <Hal> Yes we did. That ruddy lizard did some... interesting things to get him and Darte to the island.
  39. <DM> *From the passageway, you see the beast appear, but it's.... not looking at you. It's a dark, shadowy beast with an unclear form. It has metal plate of some kind on its front, covering its head. From behind it, shadowy tendrils reach outwards. It moves oddly silently about the room.
  40. * Hal looks over to the doorway blocked off by rubble. "We'd have to break through the rubble if we were to get out of here and into the open."
  41. <Corsava> (brb)
  42. <Kirran> OoO
  43. <DM> *It seems to actually be moving around the scope room and towards the southeast corridor where Hal, Darte, and Kirran are.
  44. * Kirran whispers "What the hell is that?"
  45. <DM> *You're not sure if it's looking at anyone, given it's got a giant flat plate across its face. Can it even see?
  46. <Hal> "I don't know, but it sounds nasty."
  47. <Darte> https://i.imgur.com/IinOR2s.gifv
  48. * DM high-fives Darte.
  49. <DM> [Harry]: W-w-w-what is THAT?!
  50. <DM> *He completely freaks out and screams.
  51. <DM> *Almost immediately, the Shadow Beast charges towards the southeast corridor. So, who's closest to the doorway?
  52. <Hal> "In any case, we want to either get back into the scope room and try and fight that there or get out into the open and fight it there."
  53. <DM> *Lessee, Harry's closest in, Kirran appeared nearby, Hal was watching them, and Darte......... uh oh.
  54. * Hal is away from the doorway, with Harry near the dark cell hallway.
  55. <DM> *Darte did just escape from the previous room......
  56. <Kirran> https://imgur.com/SSSrHSj
  57. <Kirran> Great. Came back just in time to fight a shadow behemoth. Stupid shadow portals...
  58. <DM> *It's not actually a behemoth. If anything, it's barely larger than any of you all. It's just... intimidating as heck.
  59. <DM> *Darte, the Shadow Beast charges at you! Though, its charge is at an angle towards the doorway. Roll Courage to defend!
  60. * Hal tucks Harry into the dark cell block, hoping it keeps him away from danger.
  61. <Darte> $39d10
  62. <Navi> Darte: You rolled 39 Dice with 10 Sides. Results: 5, 8, 1, 7, 5, 9, 5, 9, 5, 2, 7, 2, 2, 9, 6, 9, 4, 10, 8, 6, 3, 2, 2, 5, 5, 1, 6, 9, 9, 8, 4, 3, 6, 4, 9, 10, 2, 3 and 8. Total: 218. Successes: 27.
  63. <DM> $65d10
  64. <Navi> DM: You rolled 65 Dice with 10 Sides. Total: 374. Successes: 51.
  65. <Darte> :<
  66. <DM> 27 doubled thanks to door angle...... you're safe!
  67. * Darte puts a clammy fish hand over Harry's mouth as he screams and bowls them outta the way. (?)
  68. <DM> *Darte, you barely manage to zip backwards in time, right as the Shadow Beast slams into the doorway itself, getting caught for a moment. Its plating, despite slamming the doorway at what should be deadly speeds, remains completely intact.
  69. <Darte> (DM's discresh on Harry-savin')
  70. <DM> *You zoink on over to Harry and stop him from screaming further.
  71. <DM> *The thing, now blocking the doorway, looks towards you all. It takes a few steps further, now getting.... Kirran, you're now closest.
  72. <Kirran> Oh hell no.
  73. <DM> *It stops, only two steps away from you.
  74. <DM> (did you actually say that out loud?)
  75. <Kirran> No
  76. <DM> (kay)
  77. * Kirran pauses and puts the pieces together.
  78. * Kirran throws a pebble off away from him.
  79. * Darte searches his inventory for his Elmer Fudd accent.
  80. <DM> *Harry shivers in place, trying to calm himself, but thanks to the hand over his mouth, he uhh...... he passes out, collapsing and making an audible noise.
  81. <DM> *Thankfully, Kirran chucked a pebble. Where to?
  82. <Kirran> Somewhere where no one else is standing.
  83. <Darte> (Oh come on, he showered today >:V )
  84. <DM> *There's another corridor to your side, or you can attempt to throw one past it.
  85. <Kirran> (Not really sure what the room is shaped like. Didn't have time to take stock.)
  86. <Kirran> (Down the other corridor I guess.)
  87. <Kirran> (But like, off the wall so it's close-ish.)
  88. <DM> *The pebble manages to outrank the collapsed Harry, and the Shadow Beast charges down that corridor, silently at first, then slamming into the wall at the other end of it. The building shakes for a moment.
  89. <DM> *It then screeches loudly and painfully. Since you all are actually kind of close to it now...
  90. <DM> *Kirran, Darte, and Hal, roll Wisdom to defend! Darte and Hal, since you're in that cell, gain +5 dice on this.
  91. * Hal looks for a quick getaway to get some room away fromt his thing
  92. * Corsava peeks out from behind the rock
  93. <Hal> $38d10
  94. <Navi> Hal: You rolled 38 Dice with 10 Sides. Results: 4, 7, 2, 3, 7, 1, 5, 7, 2, 1, 10, 7, 7, 9, 7, 7, 3, 9, 9, 6, 7, 8, 2, 8, 3, 1, 7, 3, 8, 8, 2, 2, 4, 4, 5, 1, 5 and 9. Total: 200. Successes: 23.
  95. <Darte> $34d10
  96. <Navi> Darte: You rolled 34 Dice with 10 Sides. Results: 7, 7, 10, 7, 3, 7, 5, 9, 3, 8, 8, 1, 3, 4, 9, 5, 2, 1, 5, 9, 4, 3, 6, 5, 4, 9, 9, 9, 9, 3, 8, 6, 9 and 7. Total: 204. Successes: 24.
  97. <DM> *Well there's always the great scope room, the one with a meteor crashed into the middle.
  98. <DM> $30d10
  99. <Navi> DM: You rolled 30 Dice with 10 Sides. Results: 3, 2, 3, 7, 1, 6, 4, 8, 7, 7, 1, 5, 1, 3, 6, 5, 1, 9, 7, 6, 4, 1, 5, 3, 10, 4, 5, 7, 10 and 4. Total: 145. Successes: 18.
  100. <DM> *Pathway over to there is clear.

  104. <DM> *Corsava, you see no one else in the great scope room. Instead, you feel the building shake, and then the echoes of a loud screech from the southeast corridor.
  105. * Hal dashes over to the Scope Room
  106. <DM> *You all defend yourselves from its very painful screeching.
  107. <DM> *Hal, your dashing wasn't exactly quiet. Kirran, you see the thing turn around, aiming generally in your direction.
  108. <Kirran> (Is counter punching a charging enemy a thing?
  109. <Kirran> )
  110. * Darte drags Harry along the floor to the scope room.
  111. <DM> (you could attempt. Not sure how recommended it is though, given that thing full-speed rammed the side of a doorway and the plate was unscratched.)
  112. <DM> *Harry partially wakes up.
  113. <DM> [Harry]: Wha? I..... wha? Why am I being...... drafregoeghtegito
  114. <DM> *He ends up mumbling incoherently and instead just trying to breathe. You pull him over to the scope room, the sounds of dragging him kindly attracting the Shadow Beast.
  115. <DM> *Kirran, you're the only one in sight!
  116. * Kirran quietly moves towards the doorway where everyone else was running, but at an angle out of the beast's direct line of attack.
  117. <DM> *Or not.
  118. <Corsava> Darte. What's going on? I heard a scream and ducked behind cover
  119. * Hal also positions himself at an angle out of the direct line of attack.
  120. <DM> *Right as you do that, it slams into the wall behind you, shaking the building again. You nearly stumble on your way out.
  121. * Darte raises a warning finger to his lips, ducking beside the corridor's exit and pushing Harry against the wall.
  122. <DM> [Harry]: Wait, are you..... are you seducing me, fish man? I.... I don' tknow how I uhhh... feel about this.
  123. * Kirran leans in close to Hal so that only he can hear.
  124. * Darte snorts. "You wanna say that again, but louder?"
  125. <DM> *The Shadow Beast takes some steps closer to the exit of the corridor. It exits, immediately turning to the side where Darte just made a remark.
  126. <Darte> Hit it from behind!
  127. <DM> *Darte, there is.... no nearby cover.
  128. * Darte covers Harry.
  129. <DM> *Corsava, you see the Shadow Beast about to ram Darte's face in.
  130. * Corsava "oh shit shit shit... Uh.... Look out!"\
  131. <DM> *Corsava, the beast turns towards you.
  132. <Corsava> "Oh wow I wish I had my trident..."
  133. <DM> *Being on the metallic rock where Dex the newt was, you can attempt to drop behind it. Roll Courage to defend!
  134. <DM> $65d10
  135. <Navi> DM: You rolled 65 Dice with 10 Sides. Total: 327. Successes: 35.

  138. <Corsava> $21d10
  139. <Navi> Corsava: You rolled 21 Dice with 10 Sides. Results: 7, 6, 10, 7, 10, 10, 6, 4, 2, 10, 7, 10, 7, 8, 6, 2, 2, 5, 9, 7 and 9. Total: 144. Successes: 22.
  140. <DM> *Thanks to the now-rugged terrain of this room due to someone meteor smashing part of it, it stumbles a bit in its charge towards you.
  141. <Corsava> (XD)
  142. <DM> *Thanks to diving behind the rock, you manage to just barely dodge it. It flies over your head and slams into the wall behind you.
  143. * Kirran picks up a glass shard and chucks it at the beast.
  144. <Corsava> "fuuuuuuuu"
  145. <DM> *Though, now you're on the ground, you notice your footsteps immediately crackle the glass shards on the ground.
  146. <DM> (Roll it, Kirran!)
  147. <DM> (uhhh chucking is... power throw)
  148. <Kirran> $40d10
  149. <Corsava> "Doesn't one of you have the gloves to throw this rock?!"
  150. <Navi> Kirran: You rolled 40 Dice with 10 Sides. Results: 4, 7, 5, 10, 9, 2, 4, 2, 9, 1, 8, 5, 10, 5, 4, 10, 1, 8, 1, 10, 4, 1, 7, 1, 7, 9, 3, 2, 8, 9, 10, 1, 5, 5, 10, 4, 6, 4, 5 and 5. Total: 221. Successes: 30.
  151. * Hal does, but he only has 10 Power.
  152. * Darte grumbles. "The lizard took 'em with him!"
  153. <DM> *Corsava, it turns towards you, inconveniently at the same time Kirran chucked his glass shard.
  154. <Corsava> "Ugh, okay, who's the strongest out of us, then?"
  155. * Kirran raises his gauntleted hand.
  156. <DM> $15d10
  157. <Navi> DM: You rolled 15 Dice with 10 Sides. Results: 5, 3, 9, 5, 8, 3, 4, 8, 1, 5, 8, 4, 6, 4 and 5. Total: 78. Successes: 9.
  158. <DM> *Glass shard to the face is a direct hit, with 21................
  159. <DM> *The glass shard shatters harmlessly across its face plate.
  160. <DM> ...... 21 - 30 = 0 damage
  161. <DM> *Yes. Its face plate is 30. Frigin'. Armor.
  162. <DM> *Hal, you suddenly have an inferiority complex towards this creature. You're not sure why.
  163. <DM> cough
  164. <DM> *Just to clarify, that rock is..... about 15 times your size.
  165. * Hal casts Steel Shadows on himself and uses Magnet Push on the Shadow Beast!
  166. <Hal> (Roll Power)
  167. <DM> *And it's now impaled in the floor. You're not sure any of you could lift it, so much as even budge it.
  168. <Hal> $20d10
  169. <Navi> Hal: You rolled 20 Dice with 10 Sides. Results: 2, 2, 7, 4, 9, 5, 4, 9, 10, 8, 9, 3, 3, 3, 8, 8, 7, 1, 6 and 2. Total: 110. Successes: 12.
  170. <DM> $15d10
  171. <Navi> DM: You rolled 15 Dice with 10 Sides. Results: 8, 9, 6, 6, 9, 10, 3, 2, 6, 7, 7, 8, 8, 3 and 1. Total: 93. Successes: 12.

  177. <DM> *It works!
  178. <Hal> Take this!
  179. * Hal holds the Shadow Beast in place, preventing it from moving or attacking. However, he can't move while he channels it
  180. <DM> *Using your Magnetic Gloves, you channel a powerful force into its plate, forcing it down in place. Likewise, you can't do crap either though.
  181. * Corsava fires Impact arrows at the thing, hoping to whittle down its armor, maybe?
  182. <DM> *Well, technically you can use Support Actions.
  183. <Corsava> (You know, on her turn, of course)
  184. <DM> (go ahead)
  185. <Corsava> $29d10
  186. <Navi> Corsava: You rolled 29 Dice with 10 Sides. Results: 9, 9, 2, 9, 3, 9, 6, 4, 2, 3, 1, 7, 8, 7, 7, 8, 1, 7, 10, 7, 2, 8, 9, 5, 5, 4, 8, 7 and 6. Total: 173. Successes: 21.
  187. * Darte just walks behind it while it's stuck in one spot and tries to poke at its squishy parts.
  188. <DM> $15d10
  189. <Navi> DM: You rolled 15 Dice with 10 Sides. Results: 6, 5, 5, 4, 7, 3, 7, 5, 9, 1, 7, 2, 2, 3 and 10. Total: 76. Successes: 10.
  190. <DM> *Your impact arrow hits! It doesn't do any damage, but it does somehow make an actual dent in the plate.
  191. <Corsava> "I think I chipped it"
  192. <DM> *Shadow Beast seems otherwise unaffected. It attempts to screech, but whatever Hal is doing, the screech seems muffled.
  193. * Kirran suddenly starts thinking about a crazed wrestler he once met.
  194. * Corsava knocks another arrow and awaits her next turn
  195. <Hal> (oh dear god, he met Dhoo didn't he?)
  196. <DM> >_<
  197. * Kirran gets out his Cane of Lalakar, cracks his knuckles, and gets ready to attempt something totally out of character.
  198. <DM> *Just then, those frenzied whispers seem to radiate throughout the room. Harry, once more, curls into a ball, his hands over his ears.
  199. * Kirran teleports himself to the highest point he can reach on a wall close to where the beast is trapped.
  200. <Kirran> Here we go.
  201. <DM> (for reference, in case anyone isn't familiar with a Shadow Beast, visual wise - http://zelda.wikia.com/wiki/File:Shadow_Beast.png
  202. * Kirran kicks off the wall and goes for a power slam with his gauntlets on the shadow beast.
  203. <DM> (how high up are you teleporting?)_
  204. <Kirran> (Max is 50 feet I believe)
  205. <DM> *FYI, there's a large hole in the ceiling, so you could go the full distance.
  206. <DM> *Alright, you zip up! First, roll $50d10
  207. <Kirran> $50d10
  208. <Navi> Kirran: You rolled 50 Dice with 10 Sides. Results: 8, 10, 7, 9, 6, 7, 5, 8, 5, 4, 3, 9, 8, 10, 5, 3, 6, 10, 7, 10, 6, 10, 6, 10, 9, 6, 7, 1, 7, 9, 10, 5, 9, 7, 3, 4, 3, 8, 2, 7, 1, 4, 5, 8, 4, 10, 1, 9, 9 and 8. Total: 328. Successes: 46.

  213. <Kirran> $86d10
  214. <Navi> Kirran: You rolled 86 Dice with 10 Sides. Total: 493. Successes: 63.
  215. <DM> *It tries to look up towards the direction of a wind funnel in the air.

  217. <Navi> DM: You rolled 15 Dice with 10 Sides. Results: 2, 3, 2, 10, 1, 8, 5, 4, 10, 9, 5, 5, 4, 9 and 6. Total: 83. Successes: 11.
  218. <DM> *You kindly slam down onto its face full force with your gauntlets!
  219. <DM> 63 - 11 = 52 - 27 = 25 damage!
  220. <Hal> (Did Kirran aim for the face?)
  221. <Hal> (Or did was he aiming for its body?)
  222. * Darte watches Kirran's gentle face-smashing.
  223. <DM> (it can't move, but it was still able to turn its head. Yey face plate.)
  224. <DM> *It noticeably recoils, still being forced in place by Hal's magnetic barrage. There's a larger dent in its face plate, and some of its tendrils are waving around more erratically, but it otherwise seems..... alright..... ish.
  225. <DM> *It does a muted screech of pain.
  226. <DM> Shadow Beast: 25h, 6m | -3 Armor
  227. <DM> *Just then, the Shadow Beast seems to meld into surroundings. It...... Camouflages. Hal, your magnetic link severs.
  228. <DM> Shadow Beast: 25h, 3m | -3 Armor | Sneaky
  229. <Hal> 18h 11m | +5 Power | +2 Armor
  230. <DM> *However, since the whole room has glass shards everywhere, you folks do hear... something... stepping through the glass shards.
  231. <Hal> (Do I have room for a support action now?)
  232. <DM> (yep)
  233. <DM> (it's a fairly free battle for now, so you folks are welcome to do stuff, it's just if you chain 5 things in a row, I'll ignore most of it)
  234. * Hal brings out his Magic Candle and lights up the room.
  235. <Hal> Light it up!:

  267. <Kirran> (Did we lose Darte somewhere?)
  268. <Hal> (Any moves? Darte?)
  269. * Corsava aims another impact arrow, pondering where the fishy went
  270. <DM> *By the way, you noticed with your paired arrow attack, although you both fired from relatively the same direction, it only moved its head to defend against one of them.
  271. <Hal> (Darte's been idle for a fair while)
  272. <Hal> (Soo... probably lost him at some point.
  273. <DM> *Fishy is clearly still attempting to seduce the shady guy. You guys carry on. When he returns, he'll make his move.
  274. * Darte decides to cast Jabun's Tide on it. Can't dodge what's surrounding you.
  275. <DM> *Or not.
  276. <DM> (is that a hit-all enemies?)

  301. * Hal also gains another 2 armor.
  302. <DM> *Whelp, it still takes no damage, but at least its armor is down to..... 15!
  303. <Hal> 18h 10m | +5 Power | +4 Armor
  304. <DM> [Harry]: Why not... err... attack from the sides? You've got it pinned, don't you?
  305. <DM> *Harry pipes up with a suggestion. It's.... actually kinda valid.
  306. <Kirran> (That's what I was trying to do per DM's suggestion.)
  307. <Kirran> (Or rather, implication)
  308. * DM backs up.
  309. <DM> *Okay, since the attack was, as stated, a crossfire, I'm assuming that means from opposite sides.
  310. <DM> *Corsava, your attack didn't do jack crap still, as it turned to face you and blocked the arrow.
  311. <DM> *Kirran, on the other hand...
  312. <DM> 28 - 11 = 17 + 12 = 29/2 rounded = 15 damage!
  313. <DM> *With an attack to its backside and no armor to block, it goes down!
  314. * Corsava raises a fist in excitement
  315. <DM> [Harry]: Great idea! A crossfire from two sides! I.. feel safe around you all.
  316. <Corsava> "Aww, we feel safe around you too, Harry."
  317. <Kirran> -__-
  318. <DM> *The beast screeches at first in pain, then moaning until it's nothing more than agonized whimpers before it finally dies.
  319. <Hal> That's one beast down. More will follow.
  320. * Darte turns back to Harry, sneering a bit. "Maybe you should feel a bit _less_ secure. What's got you so jumpy about my companions, here?"
  321. <DM> *The metal plate shrinks, then clangs onto the floor. The beast itself fades into a pool of darkness before vanishing completely. You never saw what was under that plate.
  322. * Corsava walks up and tries to pick the plate up
  323. <DM> *He shrinks slightly at the remark.
  324. <Kirran> We need a better plan of attack then. Those things are damn hardy.
  325. <DM> [Harry]: Wha? What are you... what do you mean?
  326. <DM> [Harry]: *with an exaggerated motion* They're fine warriors! I have nothing to fear.
  327. * Kirran turns at that statement.
  328. <Hal> Yes we do. It took the four of us to bring down one of them.
  329. * Corsava carries the plate over to the group "Look, guys! It dropped the thing"
  330. <DM> *Corsava, you find it has a handle on the backside. It's about the size of a shield...
  331. <Kirran> Listen pal, I'm a Sheikah. Born and bred in the shadows from birth to be a protector of the realm. And I'm terrified of this place.
  332. <Kirran> Everything we've fought has been way above our paygrade.
  333. <Hal> Maybe if I start indluging in fire... and burning those monsters alive... hehehe.
  334. * Corsava grins and holds it like a shield, trying to get a feel for it
  335. <DM> [Raine]: Ooh, fire sounds like a great idea!
  336. * Hal uses his Lost Spell scroll to learn Ruby Inferno
  337. <DM> *Corsava, it works very nicely as a shield! Also, the dents seems to have repaired themselves.
  338. <Kirran> You have everything to be afraid of here, but not us. And yet, we're the ones you're terrified of. Why?
  339. * Hal has learned this:

  351. * Darte shakes his head, stepping back from Harry. "He's not comfortable with us, but there _is_ something here that's got him on edge, too. Well, what is it? Spit it out, 'cuz if you're scared of it, I get the feeling we should be as well."
  352. <DM> (well played Hal)
  353. * Hal nudges Darte
  354. * Hal leans over to Darte, whispering so only he could hear
  355. <DM> [Harry]: Wh-wh-wha? I.... the whispers... whatever is.... here..... it's got me spooked, but then you fellow showed up, and you killed not one, but two of those screeching beasts!
  356. <DM> [Harry]: I think, maybe, just maybe... you can take care of the whispers, yes?
  357. * Corsava basks in his praise, feeling good to be appreciated
  358. <DM> *As if on cue, those whispers interrupt your thoughts. Hal, you feel a tad more disoriented than usual from them. Kirran, you feel a bit weak for a moment, then recover nicely.
  359. * Darte considers, whispers something back to Hal, then steps back some more, giving him space. "Fine."
  360. <Kirran> You mean the whispers in your head, don't you? The ones creating all the static?"
  361. <DM> [Harry]: Y-yeah, those! I don't know what's causing them, but... since being in this room, we seem... closer than before.
  362. <DM> [Harry]: Please, please I beg you! Before I go insane from it all, please get rid of whatever's..... whatever is making that... those whispers!
  363. * Kirran tests a theory he's having, and moves towards the south door the beast crashed into, paying attention to the level of the background noise in his head.
  364. <DM> *He drops down onto the ground, bowing before you.
  365. <Hal> *Hal's magic regen has kicked in from the fight, recovering 4 Magic*
  366. <Hal> 18h 14m
  367. <DM> *After a little bit, the background whispers subside, though now they're...... directional?
  368. <DM> *You all can tell quite clearly they're coming from the passageway of darkness to the north.
  369. <Corsava> "Huh...fun."
  370. <DM> *Harry points to the north.
  371. <DM> [Harry]: It's there, I can feel it! Whatever is causing it...... it's in there!
  372. * Hal attempts to use the Illusion of Disguise on Harry, disguise him as a random Hylian pheasant if successful.
  373. <DM> *It works!
  374. <Kirran> And now he's a bird.
  375. <Kirran> ...
  376. <DM> ._.
  377. <DM> *Peasant
  378. * Kirran Eye of Truths him.
  379. <DM> *Harry transforms, for a moment, into a frigin' bird, then back into a normal peasant.
  380. <Hal> (must be fokkas flying around)
  381. <DM> (whelp)
  382. <DM> *Kirran, roll Wisdom!
  383. <Kirran> (Wouldn't be the worst time I've done it. That feedback loop is still ringing in my ears)
  384. <Kirran> $27d10
  385. <Navi> Kirran: You rolled 27 Dice with 10 Sides. Results: 2, 7, 10, 4, 8, 10, 7, 4, 1, 8, 7, 5, 2, 8, 7, 6, 5, 8, 2, 6, 10, 7, 9, 1, 5, 7 and 1. Total: 157. Successes: 22.
  386. <DM> *He doesn't roll.
  387. <DM> *The Eye of Truth hits!
  388. <Hal> (I was hoping this wouldn't happen...)
  389. <DM> *Annnd you unintentionally remove the disguise Hal just put on him.
  390. <DM> *Harry stares back at you, Kirran, dazed as the Eye of Truth mark lingers on his head, waiting for your question.
  391. <DM> [Harry]: You're not... gonna ask me to.. marry you, are you?
  392. * Darte facepalms. "Better make this good."
  393. <Kirran> 0_o
  394. <DM> [Raine]: Do it! It'd be funny! I wanna see how the Eye of Truth interacts as a marriage proposal! Do etttttt- ooh cheesecake.
  395. <DM> *Raine, as quickly as she existed, goes back to stuffing cheesecake in her face, and passing out.
  396. <Kirran> Harry, where is the shard of the Mirror of Twilight?
  397. <DM> *He points to the north, his eyes glazed over thanks to the enchantment.
  398. <DM> [Harry]: The Interloper has it. It's in the Mirror Room of this abandoned Twilight Observatory.
  399. <DM> *His glazed eyes return to normal, back to being squinty-eyed. The mark dissipates from his head, as does it your head.
  400. <DM> [Harry]: W-wha? What happened to me? I feel... light headed...
  401. <Kirran> The headache should drown out the whispers for a little while.
  402. <DM> [Harry]: The... huh, I don't hear whispers. You're..... you're right! I guess... that's fine. Thanks.
  403. <Kirran> It won't last though, so we'd better get moving.
  404. <DM> [Harry]: Y-yes. That... alright. I'll stay close behind you.
  405. <DM> *He positions himself near Hal.
  406. <DM> [Harry]: You seem.. trustworthy, somehow.
  407. * Kirran checks the south door really quick, just to see what's going on with that.
  408. * Darte keeps his distance from Harry, and creeps towards the front door.
  409. <Darte> *north
  410. <DM> *South door is.... locked.
  411. <Darte> (FRONT?)
  412. * Corsava inspects the lock
  413. <DM> *The south door is..... sealed. It doesn't open to your presence. It's.... you don't see a proper lock on it.
  414. * Corsava presses my new shield to it
  415. <DM> *Darte, you check out the front door, the pizza guy is- I mean
  416. <DM> *Darte, you head towards the north door, which is already open. Ahead, a passageway of darkness. Though, now that you're in front of it, you can see there's a door on the other side.
  417. <DM> *Corsava, the door does not budge at all.
  418. * Corsava sighs and returns to the group
  419. * Kirran shrugs.
  420. <DM> *Anyone wanna try and venture the north passage?
  421. * Hal looks around for a large magnetic object
  422. * Kirran starts fiddling with a deku nut.
  423. <Darte> Where's a rogue lizard when you need one...
  424. <DM> *Hal, there's a giant rock in the middle of the room. Large magnetic object. It's just... stuck in the floor.
  425. <Hal> (Can I go through the first hall again? Is the door to that sealed?)
  426. <DM> *Darte, roll... Power.
  427. <Darte> (is this hamster punishment)
  428. <Darte> (Defense roll, or straight power?)
  429. <DM> (Nope, first hall (southeast hall, I assume) is fine.
  430. <DM> (straight power)

  435. * Hal quickly ducks into the Southeast Hall with Harry, looking at the boulder.
  436. <Hal> (Is the hole in the roof large enough for the magnetic boulder to get out?)
  437. <DM> *Darte, you thought you were lingering in front of the dark passageway. You're disoriented for just a moment, and next thing you know... You're standing in front of the door on the other side, bathed in darkness. Lone whispers sneak through a deep droning sound.
  438. <DM> (verily much so)
  439. * Darte shakes his head to clear it, then panics a bit. "U-uhhhh. Anyone?"
  440. <DM> [Whispers]: Enteeeer... and you will fiiiind...... what you seeeeeeek.
  441. * Darte feels for the floor. I'm sorry I ever hurt you, floor.
  442. <Kirran> Uh, Hal? Where'd the fish go? Wait, where's Hal? Dammit guys...
  443. * Corsava goes to where Darte was standing
  444. <DM> *The rest of you happen to notice, or lack of notice...... Darte is no longer in the room with you all.
  445. * Hal magnetizes the Magnetic boulder to lift it out of the hallway and onto on the roof
  446. <Hal> $25d10
  447. * Corsava tries to emulate what he was doing
  448. <Navi> Hal: You rolled 25 Dice with 10 Sides. Results: 9, 10, 7, 7, 4, 2, 8, 9, 4, 7, 9, 8, 2, 5, 7, 3, 8, 7, 9, 1, 4, 3, 4, 6 and 4. Total: 147. Successes: 16.
  449. <DM> *Corsava, you see Darte covered in darkness at the other end of the north passage. You also hear said whispers.
  450. <DM> *Hal, you try and lift the boulder, buuuuut that thing is impaling the floor quite nicely. Despite the clamps from your magnetic gloves, it doesn't budge.
  451. * Corsava looks at him with my cool new scope
  452. <Kirran> I don't think I like this place.
  453. <Hal> (I mean the boulder in the Southeast hall?)
  454. * Kirran throws a Deku nut at Darte.
  455. <DM> *Corsava, you see, alongside Darte, what appears to be the silhouette of an Interloper, though it's phasing in and out of the darkness.
  456. * Corsava eyes widen "Oshit"
  457. <DM> (oh, THAT boulder. Thaaaaaat's what you meant, okay that boulder, than hallway hole, got it)
  458. <Hal> (Yes)
  459. <Corsava> "Y-You uh...you guys...Darte is in trouble."
  460. <DM> *Kirran, the flash from the Deku Nut removes the trance state he's in. Corsava, there's a flash of light, and then no Interloper. However, the door has opened.
  461. <Corsava> Ooh, the door is open!
  462. <DM> *Hal, you lift up the boulder and thanks to the ceiling already being damaged, it flies through the ceiling quite nicely, back into the air. It then collides into the other metallic rock that was hovering above there.
  463. <Kirran> Darte, what did I tell you about cavorting with darkness?
  464. <DM> *North door opened, derp.
  465. * Darte wheezes, blinking away the Deku Nut flash. He hasn't been flashed that hard since...
  466. <DM> *Darte, you see a hallway of mirrors, then at the end of it, an altar.
  467. * Corsava rushes over to Darte. "Are you alright? Did it bite you?"
  468. <DM> *On said altar, a fragment of the Twilight Mirror, complete with glowy lines etched into it. It's larger than the tiny piece Dex used to have.
  469. * Kirran has another deku nut already on hand, just in case.
  470. <Corsava> "Whoa...that's cool."
  471. * Darte blinks at Corsava, squinting a bit. "Wh- bite?? It just... creepy-whispered."
  472. <Corsava> "Yeah, but it was super close to you."
  473. <Kirran> Don't even think about touching that mirror Corsava. That's got trap written all over it.
  474. <DM> *The light coming from this mirror room is coming from holes in the ceiling, the twilight sunset shining rays of dim light into the hallway of mirrors.
  475. * Hal climbs out onto the roof and attempts to establish a magnetic link to move the steel boulder he moved before and move it over to the scope room.
  476. <Hal> $25d10

  478. <DM> (Hal..... why are you suddenly being a Dex)
  479. <Corsava> "Really? You think that could *possibly* be a trap?"
  480. <DM> *Hal, now that you're in free-floating realm, the only way you can move something would be to push from the other side.
  481. <Kirran> Listen, if you'd been on as many quests with these guys as I have, you'd give obvious warnings too.
  482. <DM> *Corsava, your sarcasm seems to bounce off of serious-Kirran.
  483. * Hal ducks back down into the hallway and moves back into the scope hallway.
  484. <Hal> (I had a plan, but then Darte and Corsava is making it not work.
  485. <DM> (yeah, I see the plan. It might work later though.)
  486. <DM> *Okay, you've got the rock hovering right over where the old rock was, and now you see your entire party in a hallway of darkness arguing about the trap-worthiness of the next section.
  487. <DM> [Whispers]: Is this... not what you... seek?
  488. <DM> *Flutters of darkness pass over the Twilight Mirror fragment on the other side.
  489. <DM> *Yeah, all of you heard that one.
  490. <Corsava> "Not really. Do you have it in a different size?"
  491. * Hal wishes he had a Clawshot ready...
  492. <DM> *Let's see... the three of you are in the hallway of darkness uhhh...
  493. <DM> *Corsava, Darte, and Kirran, roll Power!

  562. <DM> *It reappears at the end, attacking from there instead of the mirrors around you. You're, thankfully, facing forward.

  730. <DM> *You try to light it up, but the reflections don't seem to reflect the light in the slightest. There is a glow around Corsava thanks to the move though.
  731. <DM> *Shadowbeast then charges at Kirran, full speed! Roll Courage!
  732. <DM> *However, Shadowbeast ends up charging through the Sol light, decreasing its attack towards the end.
  733. <DM> $55d10

  737. <Kirran> (It also loses 3 successes per my armor)
  738. * Hal holds out a Sol near Corsava, not activating it but attempting to dispell any illusion around Corsava
  739. <DM> *Annnnd despite that, it still rams into you. Kirran, you feel pushed back, almost into the mirror room, but thanks to the power from your gauntlets, you manage to hold your ground, only a step or two away form it though.
  740. <Hal> DESCRIPTION: A ball of bright light encapsulated inside of a glass orb. Simply bringing it close to an illusion seems to dispel it.
  741. <DM> *There are no illusions around Corsava.
  742. * Hal puts it away.
  743. <DM> *Interloper appears...... now next to Hal in the dark hallway!
  744. <DM> [Interloper]: I seeee yoooouuuu!
  745. <DM> *Interloper uses its Mirror Blade to strike a target, dealing full damage. Roll Courage! | If it hits, create a mirror clone of the target for one round that's under your control. The clone has no magic. If the clone uses magic, it draws from you instead.
  746. * Hal quickly turns around moves into the Mirror room
  747. * Hal casts Block as a reaction
  748. <DM> *Its attack misses, and you escape into the Mirror Room!
  749. <DM> *Kirran, you are now surrounded by enemies on both sides of you.
  750. <DM> *Hal, you notice upon entering the Mirror Room... there is no passage back into the dark passageway. It's just a reflection of you.
  751. <Kirran> (Well, this is awkward)
  752. <DM> *ROUND 2, STARTO
  753. <DM> *Kirran, uhhh....... have fun!
  754. <DM> *Interloper goes for another attack!
  755. <DM> *This time on Kirran!
  756. <DM> *Interloper uses its Mirror Blade to strike a target, dealing full damage. Roll Courage! | If it hits, create a mirror clone of the target for one round that's under your control. The clone has no magic. If the clone uses magic, it draws from you instead.
  757. <Hal> (I thought I was already in the room)
  758. * Kirran does the same thing he did last round to the shadow beast
  759. <DM> (oh, I thought you had just moved into it just then)
  760. <DM> *Interloper misses its attack.
  761. * Darte casts a Restoration Bubble around Corsava.

  770. <DM> 24h
  771. * Kirran casts steel shadows on himself as a support action firstly though.

  779. * Corsava grins "Any advice?"
  780. <DM> *Kirran, you attempt to strike the Shadowbeast from behind, but at that point, something teleports in front of you. It's Harry, and instead that skiddish squinty-eyed face, he's got...
  781. <DM> This expression: http://zelda.wikia.com/wiki/File:Angry_Mask_Salesman_(Ocarina_of_Time).png
  782. * Darte screms
  783. <Hal> (aaaa Happy Mask Salesman)
  784. <DM> *Your attack instead hits a chaotic purplish magic shield.
  785. <DM> *You pummel it directly, dealing a solid 38 damage to it. However, something feedbacks from the shield into you through your gauntlets...
  786. <DM> $1d4
  787. <Navi> DM: You rolled 1 Die with 4 Sides. Result: 2.
  788. <DM> *Kirran, you are now Cauterized for a round! You cannot recover Hearts or Magic next round.
  789. <Kirran> (Oh dear)
  790. <DM> *Also, the Shadowbeast is unharmed.
  791. <DM> MaskMan: 25h, 212m | Oh hi there!
  792. <DM> [Mask Man]: Greetings! I can't quite have you killing this creature.
  793. <DM> [Whispers]: What in the name of... what was that?
  794. <DM> *For the first time, the Interloper's whispers are....... confused?
  795. <Darte> Angry Mask Man Origins
  796. <DM> *Mask Man uses Force Mask onto Shadowbeast!
  797. <DM> *Mask Man attempts to force a Mask of Truth onto the target. Roll Power! | If it hits, target turns into a monstrous version of themselves. At the start of each round, they roll Wisdom against the original roll. Any round they're not successful, they lose control. If the target breaks free three times successfully, the mask breaks.
  798. <DM> $45d10 MaskMan
  799. <Navi> DM: You rolled 45 Dice with 10 Sides. Results: 2, 5, 7, 9, 3, 6, 5, 4, 7, 7, 9, 10, 6, 4, 5, 1, 2, 8, 1, 3, 1, 8, 6, 10, 7, 1, 6, 4, 8, 6, 8, 10, 10, 4, 9, 3, 10, 4, 6, 6, 10, 4, 5, 6 and 7. Total: 263. Successes: 36.

  802. <DM> *The Mask Man materializes a Mask of Truth out of seemingly nowhere then places it onto the Shadowbeast. It weakens for a moment, then is consumed in a fiery rage of sheer madness incarnate. Hal, Corsava, and Darte, you can't see any of this, you just hear Harry sounding sketchy, and hearing that Shadowbeast screaming infernally.
  803. <DM> [Mask Man]: Now now, don't be afraid. It will allllll be over soon, shh, shhhhhh....
  804. <DM> *He places a soothing hand over the writhing Shadowbeast. Not creepy at all.
  805. <DM> *Okay, Corsava, Hal, and Darte, you see reflections of..... Harry...... except with that really angry face. Flashes of the Interloper's face flicker over the reflections.
  806. <DM> *The Mask Man turns to you, Kirran.
  807. * Kirran is utterly nonplussed over all of this.
  808. * Kirran is now reluctant of the plot
  809. <DM> [Mask Man]: To be clear, I have no interest in fighting you all. I just want... this fellow.
  810. * Darte does not want.
  811. <Kirran> By all means, feel free to take him far, far away from here.
  812. <DM> *The shadowbeast grows in size, the madness wrapping around its tendrils, then its tendrils squeezing its body.
  813. <DM> *The Mask Man rubs his hands together, all giddy.
  814. <DM> [Mask Man]: Oh, oh why yes, that sounds like something I should do! ... but first, I'd like to see how my new pet... fares here.
  815. <Corsava> "Well...that sounds delightful..."
  816. <DM> [Interloper]: What did you do?! My pet is no longer responding to me!
  817. <DM> *The shadowbeast flails, breaking the mirror between the dark passageway and the Mirror Room. The rest of you can see back into the passageway, complete with angry Interloper.
  818. <Hal> (What about the Sol that's active?)
  819. <DM> *That Sol is placed between Kirran and Mask Man. It.... doesn't seem to be having an effect on Mask Man, not with that chaotic barrier up.
  820. <Hal> (Are Shadow Beast and Interloper in its range of effect?)
  821. <DM> (They would be, but that barrier is blocking the way)
  822. <DM> *Shadowbeast, now thrice its size, screeches rather painfully.
  823. <Kirran> (How does it even fit in the hallway?)
  824. <DM> *The thing is crouching a bit, but yes, it's squeezed.
  825. <Darte> Maybe if we hold it in place, it'll pop!
  826. <DM> *Shadow Beast emits a painfully grating screech, hitting affecting everyone except Mask Man and Shadow Beasts, dealing half Neutral Damage. Roll Wisdom! | If it hits, target becomes disoriented for a round and can no longer choose their target (including hit all enemies).

  843. <Hal> Gaah!
  844. <Kirran> (brb)
  845. <DM> [Interloper]: Gah! How... how did you turn my own pet against me?! I should be immune to that!
  846. * Hal takes 25-22 = 3/2 = 1.5 rounded = 2 Damage
  847. <Kirran> (Though actually, I do need to go soon)
  848. <DM> (yeah, probably should pause at the end of this round, continue next week)
  849. <DM> (don't think it's ending within 30 minutes)
  850. * Corsava whispers back to Hal. "I have something that...might work to get it stuck."
  851. <Corsava> "No way for me to know for sure what will happen."
  852. <DM> Interloper: 89h, 15m | +5 Courage | Stat Focus Wisdom | Disoriented
  853. <Kirran> (Back)
  854. * Hal whispers back "tell me about it"
  855. <DM> Shadow Beast: 150h, 12m
  856. <Corsava> "I uh...can't quite explain it. In part because my player doesn't 100% understand how it works"
  857. <DM> *Okay, who's still got actions this round?
  858. <Hal> (Me)
  859. * Kirran feels robbed.
  860. <DM> *Corsava, your dark mark, now in the presence of the enraged Shadowbeast... it's glowing.
  861. * Corsava "Alright, fine. I guess now's the time to try it."
  862. * Corsava raises her hand and activates the mark "This is going to hurt so fucking bad."
  863. * Darte winces, somehow.
  864. * Corsava screams as blood begins to flow from her eyes, ears, nose, mouth, and pretty much everywhere else
  865. <Corsava> Corsava: 7h, 2m
  866. <Darte> "Oh, no, gross, not on me..."
  867. <Corsava> regen x2
  868. * Hal casts Block on himself. Again.
  869. <DM> *The mark glows bright and purple. Darte, you feel the pain from the vibrations flow through you directly from Corsava. It throws you off and forces you out of the sword state. You bounce into the air and reappear, fishman and all... albeit covered in some of Corsava's blood.
  870. <DM> *Hal, you have no idea what the crap your frigin' ally is doing. However, you do feel the madness within you flare up a bit, both in the presence of not only the Shadowbeast, but Corsava as well. You're not out of control yet, but you do feel like setting something on fire.
  871. <Darte> Guh. Yuck. Ew. Warn me next time; gah.
  872. * Kirran is just totally out of his depth here.
  873. <DM> *Mask Man is just giddily clapping his hands.
  874. * Hal growls, the fox tempted to ignite something with Ruby Inferno... but lacking the magic to do it with. Looking at Corsava, Hal casts Enlighten on her to bump her dice up.
  875. * Darte chugs a magic jar and casts Block on Corsava.
  876. <Hal> 16h 3m | +2 Armor | Block

  883. <Hal> DESCRIPTION: Bathe someone in a shower of Wisdom, enlightening them.
  884. <Hal> EFFECT: Target gains 5 Wisdom
  885. <Kirran> Because he's kinda scaring me in much the same way you sometimes do.
  886. <DM> *Mask Man, hearing Raine speak, takes a close look at Raine.
  887. <DM> [Mask Man]: What is... wait, didn't... I thought Bloodwind told me you used that fairy! How is that fairy still alive?!
  888. <DM> *Corsava, a light courses through your body. On top of the Spirit buff, you feel free from your wounds, despite still bleeding. Everywhere.
  889. <DM> *ROUND 3, GO!*
  890. <DM> *Corsava, feel free to launch the madness at will.
  891. <Corsava> $32d10

  895. <Darte> (Wait, I'm disoriented, I can't choose my target)
  896. <DM> (technically, you shouldn't have gotten hit in sword mode, you're fine)
  897. <Hal> (Corsava should have also recovered 2 Hearts from that)
  898. <DM> *The Shadowbeast takes 5 neutral damage through its face plate, then its tendrils multiply, completely squeezing its own body, shrinking it for a moment, then expanding it again, this time breaking through the ceiling.
  899. <Hal> <Hal> 16h 5m | +2 Armor | Block
  900. <Corsava> Corsava: 9h, 2m, thorny, regen x2, +5 wis, bleeding from everywhere
  901. <Corsava> "So, that's uh...what that does, then,"
  902. <DM> *However, instead of staying that way... Corsava, a channel of purply glowy energy transfers from the beast into your Dark Mark. The mark itself expands through your hand, now nearly covering the hand itself. A moment later, a weapon materializes in your hand, your trusty old Trident!
  903. <DM> *The beast shrinks back down to its first evolution, though it's at a slight angle and has its head stuck in the ceiling.
  904. * Corsava grasps my trident "I uh...think I'll call that a success"
  905. <DM> *Mask Man is completely oblivious to what happened and is instead veering closer to Kirran, specifically Raine.
  906. <DM> [Raine]: Hey uhhhh. Kirran bud, what's this guy doin'? Why's he lookin' at me like that?
  907. * Kirran skips back away from him.
  908. <DM> *You inadvertently bounce back into the Scope Room, out of the shadows.
  909. <Kirran> Nope. Nope nope nope. You stay way the hell away from me with that funky purple nonsense.
  910. <DM> [Mask Man]: No fairy survives after it's been used to revive something. What is that thing?
  911. <DM> [Mask Man]: You know, I wasn't going to do anything, but I think now...
  912. <DM> *His face flashes into that pure crazed anger, arching his hand into a claw as he steps towards you Kirran.
  913. <DM> [Mask Man]: You've intrigued me. You've... INTRIGUED ME!
  914. <DM> *As you all consider doing something, a familiar screen pops up.
  915. <DM> -=LOADING=-
  916. <DM> -=LOADING=-
  917. <DM> -=SESSION END=-
  918. <Darte> THE PURPLE STUFF WAS A LOADING SCREEN TENDRIL
  919. * Kirran is gonna need a new pair of pants after this
  920. * Darte brought a spare
  921. <Darte> ... given his armor, Darte probably _is_ a spare
  922. <DM> pffft
