  1. <WindStrike> *Last time on ZURPG! You escaped some guards, talked to some wonky librarian, she turned out to be pretty nice, then you talked to Xanas, he gave you your artifacts back, and struck you a deal. Get a piece of the Twilight Mirror back, and it's possible Midna may ally you, or at least not try to imprison you.
  2. <WindStrike> *Dex, you went through a different path, but ultimately ended up the same place.
  3. <Dex> thats how i do
  4. <WindStrike> *Supposedly, there's an Interloper with one of the Mirror Fragments in the western part of the Shadowlands, an area called the Floating Ruins.
  5. <WindStrike> -=SESSION START=-
  6. * Darte goggles at Dex. How did he not get wrecked trying to grab that fellow's eyes or something??
  7. * Corsava groans "Why does that always make me want to vomit?"
  8. * Hal also goggles at Dex (How did he get that Twili gear?)
  9. <WindStrike> *Actually, you guys look at Dex and find he's got googly eyes for eyes.
  10. <WindStrike> *Golden googly eyes.
  11. <Hal> (Description of location?)
  12. <Dex> on my face
  13. <Dex> so just look at my face description
  14. <Hal> (Of the area we are in)
  15. * Corsava blinks. "So, is it my turn to come up with a plan? Or does one of you want to take this one?"
  16. <WindStrike> *It's dark. Really dark. You can barely make sense of your bearings, though at least there's land. Above, there's that nice swirling clouds masking a permanent sunset, giving a thunderstormy twilit feel.
  17. * Hal takes out his candle, looking to illuminate the area around to get a better sense of bearings
  18. <WindStrike> *However, out to.... well, a direction you're guessing might be west... you see some floating rocks, and a full on island in the sky, though it looks to be pretty high up.
  19. <WindStrike> *Your candle helps you see Dex's googly eyes. They're..... shiny...... and googly.
  20. * Darte flicks Dex's head to see if the eyes jiggle properly.
  21. <Dex> jokes on you guys i have dark vision
  22. <WindStrike> *Anyone with Dark Vision, you see uhh.... well, a little further out, but ultimately, it doesn't do much. You can, however, confirm there's no one else in sight.
  23. * Corsava draws her trident and grins. "I missed this."
  24. <WindStrike> *There's no one around.
  25. <WindStrike> *There's no one around and your phone is dead. Out of the corner of your eye, you spot him.
  26. <WindStrike> *Shia DM- okay I'm kidding
  27. <WindStrike> wait
  28. <DM> KAY, NOW THE DM IS HERE, WHEE
  29. <Darte> HE'S HERE
  30. * Hal looks around. "Careful. We don't know where interlopers are. Stay on our toes the whole time and use our Sols carefully.."
  31. * Corsava spins an arrow and watches for the direction it lands in
  32. <DM> (Note to self - add Pols. Then we can have Pols with Sols!)
  33. <DM> *The arrow flies up, then seems to levitate just slightly towards the direction of those floating rocks and that island in that one direction you're pretty sure is west.
  34. <Hal> "Interlopers will be guarding the mirror shard. We need a plan of attack here."
  35. <Dex> Kill them and take their stuff.
  36. <DM> *Oh, Dex, dark vision. You can also see the silhouette of the Twilight Palace in the distance to what you think might be north. But it's faaaar off.
  37. <Dex> A plan that works every time with no downside whatsoever.
  38. <Corsava> "Alright, well, we should stick to cover and try to avoid line of sight on their approach. If we go for ambushes and surprise attacks, we should be able to take small groups."
  39. <DM> *And it seems your Sheikah friend, upon impact with the darkness itself, has completely melded into it.
  40. <Hal> If possible, gathering prior information is needed.
  41. * Darte ponders. "I think we just fell out of the only well of information for quite a distance."
  42. <DM> *You attempt to gather prior information, but all you have is your memories and that session recap.
  43. * DM high-fives Darte.
  44. <DM> *True story bro.
  45. <Corsava> "It's up to us to survive on our wits unaided then. I'm going to follow the arrow. You should join."
  46. <Hal> We shall move towards the floating rocks and island.
  47. * Corsava sets out west
  48. <DM> *You set out to the west and finding yourself riding out into the sunset. The End.
  49. * Hal follows Corsava.
  50. <DM> -=QUEST E- I'm kidding
  51. <DM> *The end is still stuck on a loading screen.
  52. <Darte> "Aw crap. We gotta find the next disc."
  53. <DM> *You lost it playing disc golf.
  54. <DM> *Disc golf with your friends.
  55. <DM> *Anywho, you gather yourselves west, and after a bit, you end up at the edge of the land itself. Ahead of you, well, and upwards, there seems to be some..... large floating rocks, and after some distance of that, the floating island. First rock seems to be... you guess around 50 feet away.
  56. <DM> *There is nothing between any of the rocks, as far as you can tell.

  61. <DM> pfft
  62. * Hal chuckles "Does anyone have wings? We kinda can't get to the island without some form of flight"
  63. <DM> (listening to FFXV OST over here, Valse di Fantastica piano version at the moment)
  64. * Dex grabs Corsava.
  65. * Corsava sighs. "I'm going to regret this."
  66. <Dex> Try not to wiggle too much.
  67. * Darte grabs Dex.
  68. * Dex aims his Gravity Slingshot.
  69. <Hal> This is a bad idea.
  70. <DM> *Corsava, a lizard half your side is grabbing you.
  71. <Darte> RAILGUN PITCH
  72. <Dex> On the count of 3.
  73. * Corsava "Um...what's he-"
  74. <Dex> 1
  75. <Dex> 2
  76. <Dex> 3
  77. * Darte launches Dex
  78. <Corsava> "wait n-"
  79. * Dex fires Corsava out of the slingshot.
  80. <DM> *Okay, you all trust your instincts. UHHHHHH
  81. * Hal sighs and plays the Song of Soaring; going to save people if they miss the island
  82. <DM> *Dex, you are launched into the air, and then shortly afterwards, you launch Corsava!
  83. <Corsava> "SHIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIII-"
  84. <DM> *Corsava, you completely overshoot waaaaaay past the first rock! However, you're not too far away from the second rock.
  85. <DM> *Dex, you fly into the air and.. don't.... fall? Instead, you find yourself gravitating towards the first rock. Huh. Nifty.
  86. * Corsava Air Dashes towards rock numero two
  87. <Dex> Wheee!
  88. <DM> *You safely land on the first rock. Corsava, with an Air Dash, you pull yourself towards rock 2, and you gradually gravitate towards it and land on it.
  89. * Dex hookshots the fish.
  90. <DM> *Dex, you attempt to hookshot the fish, but uhh...
  91. * Darte shrieks, flopping like a halibut on a lure.
  92. <Dex> $37d10
  93. <Navi> Dex: You rolled 37 Dice with 10 Sides. Results: 8, 7, 3, 3, 3, 9, 5, 9, 1, 7, 1, 8, 8, 3, 8, 7, 6, 2, 1, 8, 2, 8, 1, 9, 3, 10, 4, 10, 9, 9, 3, 7, 5, 6, 9, 7 and 4. Total: 213. Successes: 25.
  94. <DM> *Good rol!
  95. <DM> ......
  96. <DM> *Your hookshot fires towards Darte, then veers to the side and partially loops around the rock you're standing on before retracting.
  97. <DM> *It almost hits you in the face on the way back. You came THIS CLOSE to hookshotting yourself.
  98. * Darte is relieved that he was not shot.
  99. * Hal looks towards Darte "Shall we fly to them?"
  100. <DM> *In fact, both Dex and Corsava, you each notice that the rocks are metallic, and any metal gear on yourselves seem to attract towards the rocks.
  101. <Darte> "Fly with what?"
  102. <DM> (METAL GEAR?!)
  103. <Hal> (Song of Soaring)
  104. <Darte> (All allomantically potent metals)
  105. * Hal has the Song of Soaring active.
  106. * Darte doesn't know if that affects him or not.
  107. * Hal is capable of flight. He can lift Darte up.
  108. <Hal> *and fly with him, like he did in the Shadow Temple
  109. <DM> *By the way, looking uhh... down, you see that same Abyss you saw at the bottom of the prison. Just a singularity of shattered ruins and whatnot. It's very pretty and mesmerizing to look at..... though you're not sure you yourself want to be a part of it.
  110. * Darte gulps and closes his eyes.
  111. <DM> *Darte, you listen to the Song of Soaring within your heart, and... YOU BELIEVE YOU CAN FLYYYYYYY
  112. * Hal flys over to Darte and picks him up before flying over to Rock #1
  113. * Corsava starts to run around the rock's hemisphere in an attempt to impart a form of motion to it
  114. <DM> *You fly over and you hover in the area momentarily, then gravitate towards the first rock and land on it.

  117. * Hal has consumed 1 magic
  118. <DM> *Corsava, you don't impart motion in the rock..... but you notice you're getting faster.... and for some reason, you're starting to lose your ability to stay on said rock.
  119. <DM> *Rock 1 and 2 has another distance of 50 feet.
  120. <DM> *Rock 2 and 3, on the other hand..... is a full 100 feet.
  121. * Hal watches as Corsava perform some funky Mario Galaxy business on the second rock.
  122. <DM> *Corsava, rotating around the rock a few times, you finally notice the third, large, hulking rock. Do you want to leap towards it with your increased speed?
  123. * Darte wonders if they can push the rocks around.
  124. * Dex turns his Imitation Staff into another Hookshot.
  125. * Corsava attempts to spin attack as she's getting lift off of the rock
  126. <DM> .....
  127. * Dex ties one end of the Hookshot around Darte's waist and one end around his own.
  128. * Dex grabs Darte and loads him into his Gravity Slingshot.

  131. * Hal sighducks at the spectacle
  132. * Dex aims for the next rock.
  133. <Dex> Try to think light thoughts.
  134. <Darte> why >'x'<
  135. * Dex fires Darte at the rock.
  136. * Hal plays the Song of Soaring again and begins to run around on the rock, to generate lift to get off the rock.
  137. <Darte> (-)3(-) <--- Darte in the slingshot
  138. <DM> *Corsava, you spin ROUND AND ROUND, then jump up and lift into the sky, full on tornado style! You reach upwards into the sky and towards the third rock! Corsava, roll.. roll your Maximum Hearts.
  139. <Corsava> $18d10
  140. <Navi> Corsava: You rolled 18 Dice with 10 Sides. Results: 4, 5, 4, 10, 6, 2, 7, 9, 9, 3, 5, 1, 3, 2, 3, 1, 2 and 1. Total: 77. Successes: 8.

  143. <DM> *You knock yourself right the heck out. Hal, you look up and see Corsava's body gravitate towards the third rock...... and then veer off to the side, as if some something is pushing her away. Moments later, her body is seen in the distance and into the abyss.
  144. <DM> *Meanwhile, Dex and Darte........ *sighs*
  145. <DM> *Dex, roll the hookshot.
  146. <DM> *And add the bonus from the Gravity Slingshot.

  148. <Navi> Dex: You rolled 52 Dice with 10 Sides. Total: 298. Successes: 35.
  149. <Hal> (Can I attempt to recover Corsava's body or is she out of reach?)
  150. <Darte> (~)x(~)
  151. <DM> *Corsava's body is now a speck floating around a singularity. I mean, if you want to reach out..... you can.
  152. * Hal decides it is not worth trying and just proceeds to the second plan- err rock on his wings.
  153. <DM> *Dex and Darte, you fire outwards towards the second rock initially, then veer off to the side. However, thanks to the force of your... move... the pair of you spin around the first rock, then fly so fast, you spin around the second rock too, then fling yourselves inadvertently towards the third rock.
  154. <DM> *Hal, you fly safely from the first to the second rock. Corsava, you find yourself respawn on the second rock... and you took 10 Neutral Damage.
  155. <Corsava> "Woah..."
  156. <DM> *However, Dex and Darte, just like your poor friend Corsava before you, you find yourselves veering off to the side, and you're still another 50 feet away from the third rock.
  157. <Corsava> "The things I saw in the infinite void..."
  158. <Corsava> "I am changed."
  159. <DM> *As if there's some..... current... pulling you to the side.
  160. <Dex> $37d10
  161. <Navi> Dex: You rolled 37 Dice with 10 Sides. Results: 6, 9, 2, 5, 2, 3, 1, 2, 1, 2, 1, 3, 5, 8, 1, 5, 4, 7, 3, 9, 3, 2, 6, 1, 2, 9, 2, 3, 10, 2, 2, 6, 1, 3, 10, 2 and 5. Total: 148. Successes: 16.
  162. * Darte grips the cable and attempts to whip Dex in the direction of yon rock, because that's how gravity works yo
  163. <DM> *Thanks to your speed from before, you managed to escape the pull of the previous rock. Your hookshot, now in reach, pulls you safely towards the third rock.
  164. <Darte> (oh nvm)
  165. <DM> *Darte, uhh...... you're in the front.
  166. <DM> *Roll Power.
  167. <Darte> why
  168. * Corsava takes an arrow and ties a rope to the end of it, and the other end of the rope to her wrist*
  169. <Darte> nayru why
  170. <Corsava> "This uh...can only end positively."
  171. <DM> *BLAME DEX, BUT BLAME YOURSELF FOR YOUR OWN INACTION, MWAHAAHAHHAH
  172. <Darte> $11d10
  173. <Navi> Darte: You rolled 11 Dice with 10 Sides. Results: 1, 4, 6, 2, 4, 8, 6, 2, 8, 1 and 5. Total: 47. Successes: 5.
  174. <DM> *Darte, Dex's hookshotting shenanigans aren't the smoothest. You take 11 damage, though that is mitigated by armor.
  175. <Darte> 10h11m
  176. * Hal keeps his wings on and runs around the rock, invoking the power of his Speed Robes as an attempt to escape the second rock's gravitational pull.
  177. <DM> *Oh, physics chat in voice. Nvm, Darte you're fine. Dex, you're whipped into the rock! Roll Power against your own hookshot roll!
  178. * Darte is gleefully relieved as he alights on the rock.
  179. <DM> *Hal, are you aiming at the third rock itself or a slightly different trajectory?
  180. * Darte gets out the popcorn in prep for lizard cronch.
  181. <Corsava> $37d10
  182. <Navi> Corsava: You rolled 37 Dice with 10 Sides. Results: 5, 3, 4, 8, 5, 10, 8, 6, 9, 10, 9, 8, 2, 10, 3, 2, 3, 3, 4, 8, 3, 7, 3, 4, 1, 10, 10, 3, 7, 10, 7, 2, 3, 1, 9, 7 and 10. Total: 217. Successes: 28.
  183. <DM> *Having seen two of your teammates, you know where the current is pulling...

  186. <Hal> Slightly different trajectory
  187. <DM> *Screw it, Dex and Darte are safe on the rock. Your hookshot is screaming.
  188. * Dex high fives Darte while safely standing on the third rock.
  189. * Darte beat the final boss of Physics. Sandra Bullock welcomes us with open arms. "Awoooooo."
  190. <DM> *Hal, you aim for the slightly different trajectory, such that the current doesn't just shove you to the side and instead, you fly past the rock.... but back towards it. You gravitate around and towards the rock, orbiting it once or twice before finally landing.
  191. <DM> *Corsava, on the other hand..... sigh.
  192. * Dex turns his Imitation Staff back into an Imitation Staff.
  193. <DM> *Corsava, roll your Max Hearts...... again.
  194. <Corsava> "Fuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu-"
  195. * Hal has consumed 3 magic this time
  196. <Corsava> $18d10
  197. <Navi> Corsava: You rolled 18 Dice with 10 Sides. Results: 6, 3, 9, 6, 1, 6, 7, 1, 9, 9, 3, 2, 3, 10, 4, 10, 3 and 8. Total: 100. Successes: 12.
  198. <Hal> 18h 14m
  199. <DM> *Corsava is seen taking the same path as Hal. However, she knocks herself out, and instead of orbiting the rock gracefully like Angelic Hal... the rest of you see Corsava strapped to an arrow that's rotating her knocked-out body in the air, spinning hilariously around the rock several times before landing with a thud, slamming into the rock with..... lessee how strong was that arrow fired?
  200. <DM> *Corsava, you impact the rock with 28 damage!
  201. <DM> *Congrats, you made it!
  202. * Darte wonders if we just sent the rock itself hurtling towards the suction cup of doom.
  203. <DM> *Rock takes 28 damage. You all feel it budge just slightly. You're not sure which direction it's going.
  204. <DM> *You all see the island, 100 feet off from your position, still mostly upwards and a bit forwards. ...... there's no magnetic rocks on the other side though.
  205. <DM> *Oh, and Corsava's body, now that it's a corpse, has stopped flailing and spinning.
  206. <DM> *Oh, and as time passes, you notice the island is getting smaller. It's very slight, but it's getting smaller. Huh. I wonder if it has anything to do with Corsava's impact....
  207. * Darte wonders if he can Bait the rock.
  208. * Hal looks towards Dex and Darte "Got any ideas"
  209. <Hal> (Hal won't be screwed: Song of Soaring)
  210. <DM> *Darte, you bait the rock, but your scissors are inferior. You lose to Janken. Take 1 neutral damage.
  211. <Dex> Hookshot tied to a Hookshot then you fly out and attach it to the rock.
  212. * Darte sighs.
  213. <Darte> 9h11m
  214. * Hal keeps his Song of Soaring wings out.
  215. * Hal has Fairy Beam
  216. * Dex places Corsava's body on the other side of the rock.
  217. <DM> *Corsava, your corpse has been put down. Dex killed a dead person. PEOPLE DIE IF THEY ARE KILLED.
  218. * Dex loots the body.
  219. * Hal makes the first move; running on the rock and aiming himself at the island in the sky.
  220. * Dex takes the trident.
  221. * Dex takes the super bombs.
  222. * Dex lays a super bomb down on top of the body and lights it. The bomb. Not the body.
  223. <DM> *Corsava, your corpse feels violated.
  224. * Dex adds in the other 2.
  225. * Darte walks away from the rock and hopes this has Super Mario Galaxy rules.
  226. * Dex hurries to a safe place to await the explosion and propulsion.
  227. <DM> *Time is now ticking! Hal has gained plenty of speed, running along with the direction of the current.
  228. <DM> *Darte, you walk off the rock, and immediately fall back on it. Not enough momentum to fall off.
  229. * Hal runs more, using his Speed Robes before finally launching off, flying with his wings.
  230. <DM> *Dex, you await on..... I guess the top spot, not quite on the opposite side.
  231. <DM> *Hal, thanks to acceleration from the current, you jump upwards at an incredible velocity and reach all the way to the top!
  232. <DM> *Moments later, you hear a very, VERY loud boom.
  233. <Hal> (If Lunaria returns, those are going to he signature abilities)
  234. <Hal> *her
  235. <Dex> loud booms are a signature ability?
  236. <Hal> (The old Twili abilities)
  237. <DM> *Turning around, you expect to see the giant rock hurtling towards you. However, thanks to the power of 3 super bombs... the rock has kindly shattered into pieces. The pieces Dex and Darte are standing on happen to launch them through the current, safely landing them on the platform near you.
  238. <DM> *Corsava, on the other hand.....
  239. <DM> *You see the rock split into tons of pieces, rotating around the current, which apparently wasn't actually tied to the rock, but floating around what once was.
  240. <Dex> Woops. Maybe I should have only used two.
  241. <DM> *They start to rotate...... and spin faster. And faster. And faster. Along with Corsava's corpse.
  242. * Hal flies to the island.
  243. <Hal> (Oh derp)
  244. <DM> *One of the pebbles escapes the current and impacts a wall next to you.
  245. * Darte continues with the popcorn. This corpse is about to have a fun day.
  246. <DM> *Nearby, on the island, you notice you're next to some ruins, and an open door into a dark hallway.
  247. <DM> *Some more pebbles fly towards you all. Everyone roll Courage to dodge!

  257. * Hal equips his shield and rod

  260. <Navi> Hal: You rolled 8 Dice with 10 Sides. Results: 1, 7, 3, 7, 8, 5, 3 and 5. Total: 39. Successes: 5.
  261. <Dex> 2 mana = focus dodge
  262. <Dex> If you get attacked by a non-Magic-based attack, you can enter your own flicker, allowing you to dance around the attack and dodge it completely.
  263. <DM> *Dex out-physics shenanigans the physics of shenanigans themselves. And yes, he is actually dancing as he dodges. Classy.
  264. <Hal> 48-20-11 = 17/2 = 9 damage
  265. * Dex boot scootin boogies around pebbles.
  266. * Hal gains 4 armor as the result.
  267. <Hal> *2 armor
  268. <DM> *Darte, as you flick a popcorn towards your mouth, you notice one of them is not a popcorn. Would you like to eat it anyways?
  269. <Dex> 15h 13m
  270. * Darte shrugs. He's not picky.
  271. <Hal> 9h 10m
  272. <Darte> $39d10
  273. <Navi> Darte: You rolled 39 Dice with 10 Sides. Results: 4, 4, 9, 4, 6, 5, 7, 8, 5, 2, 7, 5, 2, 9, 3, 10, 5, 6, 6, 2, 10, 8, 8, 1, 5, 1, 8, 2, 5, 10, 7, 9, 3, 5, 2, 9, 10, 9 and 7. Total: 228. Successes: 31.
  274. <DM> *Darte attempts to eat the popcorn, only for a pebble to impale straight through his mouth and leave a nice fishy blood spa- oh, nevermind, he dodged.
  275. <DM> *Well, kinda. He still got hit, just not a headshot.
  276. <DM> *You notice more pebbles flying your direction. And right behind that, more flying rocks. Do you all try to escape to the ruined building nearby?
  277. <Darte> 3h11m
  278. <Hal> (IIRC Corsava should respawn... where she started the quest if nobody comes to help her. Session 5.2 with her and Kirran anyone?)
  279. * Hal tries to escape to the ruined building.
  280. <DM> (hah. Nah, I'll respawn her in quest. Just, well.... it'd be pointless to respawn her in the middle of a meteor shower.)
  281. * Dex follows Hal.
  282. * Darte tries to fire a hookshot at the corpse before booking it to shelter.
  283. <DM> *Darte, you fire the hookshot outwards, hoping to grab ahold of the corpse. Instead uhhhhhhh
  284. <DM> *Darte, you fling yourself INTO the meteor shower. RIP Darte.
  285. <Hal> (WELP, now it is just the two of us now)
  286. <DM> *OKAY, the two of you left alive manage to escape into the building just as the path behind you gets blasted by tons of falling rocks. The building shakes, but somehow remains intact.
  287. <Dex> you know that if we all jump into space he either has to end the session and think of something for next time or just respawn us and let us keep going right
  288. <DM> *With some holes in the ceiling, there's a little bit of light filtering in from the dim light in the sky, but otherwise, it's pretty dark in here.
  289. <Hal> We are not jumping into space.
  290. * Hal brings out his candle the illuminate the building
  291. <Dex> thats quitter talk
  292. <Dex> we can do anything we set our minds to
  293. <Hal> Dex, I am not sure how much further you can break the laws of reality before some cosmic force straightens you out.
  294. <DM> *The moment you bring your candle out, you're met by the bleeding eyes of your compadres, Darte and Corsava, attempting to grab ahold of you in their zombie state. Roll for initiat- I'm kidding, auto-revive kicked in. Darte and Corsava, you're at 1 Heart each!
  295. <Corsava> "Braaaaaaaai- Wait, we're not going with that?"
  296. <Dex> AND IT ALL WORKED OUT
  297. <DM> *You're not sure how exactly they're back, but at least you don't have to dig them from the rubble.
  298. * Corsava drinks two red potions
  299. * Hal equips his Magic Mail and casts a Great Rejuvination on Darte.
  300. * Darte tucks away his zombie makeup. Not that he hasn't got the pale and clammy part down.
  301. <Corsava> "Do uh...do you actually know how to use that trident?"
  302. <DM> *Corsava, as you awaken, you notice your awesome Trident that made you somewhat relevant in battle missing.
  303. <Dex> Pointy end into Bad People.
  304. <Hal> (12 Hearts recover to Darte)
  305. <Darte> 13h11m
  306. <Hal> 11h 10m
  307. * Hal chugs down a Green Potion and a Recovery Heart
  308. <Dex> Also. What trident?
  309. <Corsava> "Truly a master of martial arts."
  310. <Hal> 17h 19m
  311. <DM> *Lighting up the area, the design of the walls and floor seems similar to that of the Twilight Palace, only ruined and covered in scorch marks. There's holes in the walls that lead nowhere and holes in the ceiling that lead to SPEHSS MAHRINES- I mean SPAAAAAAAAACE.
  312. <DM> *The walls are not lit up like the Twilight Palace though, you just see the lines where they're supposed to be lit up.
  313. <DM> *At the end of the corridor is a door, though it's half broken and you can just walk through it just fine.
  314. <Hal> This looks like interloper territory.
  315. <Hal> Watch our backs.
  316. <DM> *Right as you say that, Hal you start to hear whispered voices and ramblings in your head. Which..... is usually due to an Interloper being around. Heck, you ALL hear the voices in your head.
  317. * Dex goggles his golden goggles.
  318. <Hal> ...
  319. * Darte shrugs. "Can't be any worse than ducking around lights in the ceiling."
  320. <DM> *For a moment, the voices stack and overlay, overwhelming you before turning to whispers, only being slightly noticeable occasionally.
  321. * Dex camouflages.
  322. <DM> *Corsava, you hear....... voices in your head that aren't your own, or the mad ones usually in your head. These are....... different. Like someone trying to get into your head and manipulate you.
  323. <DM> *Hal, you're a tad flared up from your curse.
  324. * Corsava asks the voices what I should do
  325. <DM> *At the moment, you hear nothing in response Corsava. For now, at least...
  326. <DM> *Dex, you camouflage yourself into the darkness in the darkness itself.
  327. <Corsava> "Huh, I guess it never thought it would get that far."
  328. * Hal growls lowly, now hearing his own voices in his head as he casts an illusion of invisibility on himself...
  329. <DM> *So, anyone advancing into the next corridor?
  330. * Corsava walks through the corridor "Come on, no advice? No requests? You must have something."
  331. * Dex stealths forward.
  332. * Hal slowly peeks around into the next corridor.
  333. * Darte stares at each wall opening in turn. "Guess we've got our direction, at least." Off he goes after Corsava.
  334. <DM> *You all simultaneously move forward. When I say you could walk through the half-broken door, I didn't mean all at once. Geez.
  335. <Corsava> "Look, all I'm saying is if there's something you want, just ask. I can be perfectly reasonable."
  336. <DM> *You all squeeze through, albeit a bit painfully, and harumph yourselves on the other side.
  337. * Dex sneaks around.
  338. <DM> *To the left, the corridor heads down to another door. To the right, it leads towards a boulder, though it sounds like you can hear...... something, from the other side of it. And looking out into SPAAAAAACE in the holes in the ceiling, you see another magnetic rock floating in the air above. Right at the end of hookshot range.
  339. <DM> *FYI, the holes in the ceiling are more than large enough for someone to get through.
  340. * Dex checks the door.
  341. <DM> *The door seems unlocked, though given there's no light coming from the lines nearby..... you're not sure if it'll really open on its own.
  342. * Hal whispered to himself "Magnet Gloves would be so nice about now. If only Silvio didn't have 'em"
  343. * Corsava knocks on the door
  344. * Dex tests the door not opening theory.
  345. <Corsava> "Pizza delivery?"
  346. <DM> *Well, even with a knock from Corsava as she attempts to break the fourth wall, the door fails to open automatically.
  347. <DM> *Attempt to force it open?
  348. * Hal tries to see a way to climb up out of a hole.
  349. * Dex attempts to open it manually.
  350. <DM> *Roll power!
  351. <Dex> $20d10
  352. <Navi> Dex: You rolled 20 Dice with 10 Sides. Results: 4, 10, 3, 8, 1, 2, 1, 1, 6, 6, 6, 8, 6, 4, 6, 7, 9, 6, 4 and 10. Total: 108. Successes: 14.
  353. <DM> *Dex, you try to force the door open, but it doesn't budge in the slightest.
  354. <DM> *Hal, you climb out of the hole without too much of an issue. Though, there's something off about the air out here...
  355. <DM> *You don't see any hinges.
  356. * Darte wonders if Dex pushed instead of pulled.
  357. <DM> *Also, there's a crack in the middle.......
  358. <DM> *It reminds you of the ones in the Twilight Palace, that opened via sliding to the sides.
  359. * Dex does the opposite of whatever he did.
  360. <DM> *Hal, looking up towards the rock, you see the rock rotating slowly in place. As it rotates, you see.. something.... something shiny stuck to the rock. You can't tell what it is.
  361. <DM> *Looking around, towards the end of the door that Dex/Corsava are trying to get through, it seems to lead to a very large room. From the top side of it, or what you can see from here, you see floating glass shards slowly levitating towards SPAAAAAACE above.
  362. <DM> *Dex, it...... still doesn't budge.
  363. * Hal climbs back down and inches over to where Dex is attempting to open the door and whispers "psst, there is something I need you to identify outside, can you come with me?"
  364. <DM> *It'd be nice if Kirran was here with his uber Gauntlets, buuuut he's unfortunately not.
  365. * Dex whispers back. "Yes."
  366. * Corsava examines the material of the door
  367. * Dex follows Hal.
  368. * Hal climbs back out to the hole and points Dex to the shiny thing on the magnetic rock.
  369. <DM> *It's almost glass-like, but somehow like a metallic stone surface. Veeeery smooth.
  370. * Dex goggles it.
  371. <DM> *You google it, and- god dangit
  372. <DM> *You goggle it, annnd it appears to be a pair of metallic gloves, stuck to the rock.
  373. * Corsava tries to crowbar it with the shield
  374. <Dex> Its a pair of gloves. Metallic.
  375. * Dex hookshots to the rock.
  376. <DM> *You wedge your shield into the crack. It...... gets slightly wedged in, actually.
  377. * Corsava applies moderate pressure to see if it budges any
  378. <DM> *You hookshot over to the rock. Now that you're on the rock though, you feel a noticeable weight on you. It'd be a pain to try and jump off this rock...
  379. <DM> *Corsava, roll Power!
  380. <Corsava> $25d10
  381. * Dex picks up the gloves.
  382. <Navi> Corsava: You rolled 25 Dice with 10 Sides. Results: 1, 4, 6, 10, 7, 1, 1, 6, 1, 10, 2, 4, 9, 4, 2, 10, 5, 3, 1, 1, 9, 6, 8, 4 and 10. Total: 125. Successes: 16.
  383. * Hal looks at the glass shards, attempting to make anything out; questioning if they are shards from the Twilight Mirror
  384. <DM> *Dex, you pick up the gloves. They..... seem to be having an interesting interaction with the metallic rock. Right now, they're pulling towards the rock and has red lines glowing through it, but you notice a switch on the gloves themselves.
  385. <DM> *Hal, from this distance, you can't tell. Also, whatever is wrong with the air here, you start to cough. It's not hurting you..... yet.
  386. * Dex angles himself at Hal.
  387. <Dex> Catch me.
  388. * Dex flips the switch and points at the rock.
  389. <DM> *Corsava, you wedge the shield further into the door! Though, you're not quite managing to pull the torque to actually ply it open.
  390. * Darte backs away from the lizard's likely landing point.
  391. * Hal shrugs and backs away from Dex's likely landing point.
  392. <DM> *Dex, your guess is correct! The lights switch from red to teal, and the gloves steadily push you away from the rock! You land fairly softly on the floor next to Hal.
  393. <Dex> Gloves.
  394. * Dex scrambles back inside and goes to the door.
  395. <DM> *Congrats, you picked up Twili-branded Magnetic Gloves, whoo!
  396. * Dex aims the gloves at the door.
  397. * Hal scratches his head. "How did the Magnet Gloves end up in the Twilight Realm? Does that mean Silvio is trapped inside too?"
  398. <DM> *As you get over there, Hal, you hear a voice from the other end of the hallway, from the direction of the boulder blocking that end.
  399. * Dex moves his hands back and forth trying to make the door slide.
  400. <DM> *Darte, you're next to Hal I believe, so you hear it too.
  401. <DM> [???]: Help... help me. Is... is anyone there?
  402. <Hal> (I'm back in the hallway?)
  403. <Corsava> "Yes. There are many of us."
  404. <DM> (oh uhhh)
  405. <Darte> (Is that the knock-off brand gloves with a bad warranty?)
  406. <DM> (well, screw it, you're close enough anyways)
  407. * Hal climbs back down into the hallway.
  408. <DM> *It's not a voice you recognize, and it doesn't have that weird mechanical echo that the Twili speak with it. And it's not whispering like an Interloper....
  409. <DM> *Dex, you try to ranged pull the doors to the side, buuuuut it doesn't seem to work, even with the shield wedged in there.
  410. * Dex tries up and down.
  411. <DM> [???]: I... I don't know... where am I? It's dark, it's dark, the voices..... they've been in my heads for days! What is this place?! Where am I?!
  412. <DM> *Nope, not quite, Dex. It felt like you had more pull going side to side though...
  413. * Darte moves towards that end of the hallway. "Steady on, you're a boulder!"
  414. * Dex attracts the shield.
  415. * Hal is skeptical about the voice
  416. <DM> [???]: What? A... I'm no boulder! I'm a Hylian! This..... this boulder is trapping me!
  417. * Hal attempts to look for gaps in the boulder blocking the door.
  418. <DM> *There's no gaps, though you notice...... this boulder is metallic.
  419. <DM> *Dex, you attract the shield.
  420. * Dex takes the shield.
  421. * Dex heads to the boulder.
  422. <Dex> I get it.
  423. <DM> *Whelp, another loot from Corsava to Dex.
  424. * Dex tries to attract the boulder.
  425. <DM> *At this rate, Corsava will end up with nothing in her inventory by the end of this quest.
  426. * Hal backs away from the boulder
  427. <DM> *Dex, you uhhh....... pull yourself into the boulder. However, once on the boulder, you feel a greater pull with your gloves.
  428. * Dex pulls the boulder backwards?
  429. <DM> *Roll Power!
  430. <Dex> $20d10
  431. <Navi> Dex: You rolled 20 Dice with 10 Sides. Results: 4, 1, 8, 10, 4, 8, 10, 8, 4, 10, 4, 4, 10, 9, 5, 10, 1, 8, 8 and 4. Total: 130. Successes: 17.
  432. <DM> *You feel it budge slightly, but it's not quite enough.
  433. <Dex> hmm
  434. <Dex> Pull me.
  435. <DM> *Chain pulling!
  436. <Dex> Grab me and pull me.
  437. <Dex> Pull me gently though. I'm fragile and delicate.
  438. * Darte grabs Dex's legs. Maybe they'll pop o-- oh.
  439. <Dex> Start out pulling me slow.
  440. * Darte is ready to make taffy lizalfos.
  441. * Hal aids Darte in the pulling efforts
  442. * Corsava goes over to his side and gets a grip by his shoulder. "Come on. Get on the other side, Hal."
  443. <Darte> (it doesn't work, Darte has like zero power)
  444. <DM> *Everyone pulling on Dex, roll Power individually.
  445. <Hal> $10d10
  446. <Darte> $11d10
  447. <Navi> Hal: You rolled 10 Dice with 10 Sides. Results: 10, 8, 9, 2, 8, 10, 10, 4, 8 and 4. Total: 73. Successes: 10.
  448. <Dex> $20d10

  454. <DM> *Dex, roll an additional... 41d10
  455. <Darte> (Reminds me of our gnome detective who did like a thirty foot leap from a window and stuck the landing)
  456. <Dex> $41d10
  457. <Navi> Dex: You rolled 41 Dice with 10 Sides. Results: 4, 6, 9, 8, 4, 9, 5, 3, 3, 2, 2, 5, 5, 1, 2, 7, 9, 8, 3, 5, 1, 7, 9, 3, 7, 9, 7, 1, 2, 2, 3, 6, 8, 1, 4, 2, 10, 8, 5, 3 and 9. Total: 207. Successes: 23.
  458. <DM> *Alrighty, combined, it's enough! You pull the boulder out, and now there's enough of a gap around the side to sidle through.
  459. <DM> [???]: Wha... what's this? I see.. I see light!
  460. * Corsava slides through and helps the hylean out of the gap
  461. * Hal had a sudden realization of who might be hiding behind
  462. <DM> *The man you pull out is a skinny fellow with squinty eyes and frazzled orange hair. He's still shaking, his arms around himself trembling.
  463. <Dex> A FRAGGLE!
  464. <Dex> THEN THAT MEANS...
  465. * Corsava puts my cloak around him to keep him warm. "Are you alright? How long were you trapped?"
  466. <Dex> THIS IS FRAGGLE ROCK!

  469. <DM> [???]: I uhh.. I don't know. I'm... I'm scared. Maybe days, maybe months. Oh, how I hunger! I've barely eaten a scrap in so long!
  470. <DM> *He almost immediately collapses to the ground, so heavily weakened.
  471. * Corsava helps him up, carrying him if necessary
  472. <Corsava> "Do any of you have food? I don't think potions are exactly high in calories..."
  473. <DM> *He gives you a shaky smile, trying to stay upright.
  474. * Corsava smiles at him "It'll be alright. You're in good care."
  475. * Darte rummages around. "More bait? Ember seeds?"
  476. <DM> [???]: I'm afraid not. Well... I could go for a drink. A potion... might do it.
  477. * Hal checks for Hearts
  478. * Corsava "Alright. Here, you can have mine." Gives him a red potion
  479. * Darte has some soft tack.
  480. * Hal checks the guy's hearts
  481. * Dex checks the guys inventory.
  482. <DM> *Asides from his clothes, he has...... nothing in there.
  483. <DM> *He guzzles the red potion hastily, coughing up part of it as he drinks too fast, but otherwise seems fairly restored afterwards.
  484. <DM> *Hal, his hearts goes from 3 to 13.
  485. <DM> [???]: Ah... I thank you. I'm... I'm feeling better now.
  486. <DM> [???]: Umm...
  487. <DM> *He looks around at you guys.
  488. * Corsava nods "Let me know if there's anything else I can do."
  489. <DM> [???]: You're... you're at adventurers right? Umm... where are we? I don't recognize this place. It's... unfamiliar.
  490. <Hal> We should keep a watchful eye over him.
  491. <Hal> Make sure he doesn't get into trouble
  492. <Dex> I'm more of a mercenary of the roguish variety.
  493. <Darte> I thought you'd been here for a while, how is it unfamiliar...?
  494. <Corsava> "You're in the Interloper Territories of the Twilight Realm. We're seeking a portion of the Twilight Mirror here."
  495. * Dex peeks into the room beyond the boulder.
  496. * Hal nudges Darte, pointing to what he has mentioned in ZURPGTEAM
  497. <DM> [???]: Interlopers? Twilight.... wait. Isn't this...... wasn't this realm destroyed when the Spirits of Light entered it 20 years ago? I remember, I was..... I was just a kid at the time, but I remember seeing the warriors go in.
  498. <DM> [???]: No, it can't be, we..... we won that war! How can this place still exist?
  499. <Corsava> "It seems it wasn't destroyed hard enough."
  500. * Hal is suspect on a certain line the guy mentioned
  501. <DM> *Looking into the room beyond the boulder, it's a dank dark dusty place. No dank memes though.
  502. <DM> [???]: I... I suppose not.
  503. <DM> *He seems crestfallen.
  504. <Corsava> "Regardless, they seem content to ignore Hyrule at present."
  505. <DM> [???]: I hope so. They killed my parents in their initial attack and nearly destroyed Hyrule. If they ever make a comeback... it could be worse than Ganondorf's reign.
  506. <Dex> And who are you?
  507. <Dex> And who were your parents?
  508. <DM> [???]: I... umm... sorry, I haven't introduced myself yet. I'm Harry. My parents were shop owners... until the Interlopers burned them in to their own...
  509. <DM> *He breaks down, whimpering. Seems his memories hit him hard, and with the realization that Interlopers are still a thing...
  510. <DM> [Harry]: And umm... who might you all be?
  511. <Corsava> "My name is Corsava."
  512. <Darte> .... Adventurers, just here to do a job. A job that doesn't include hearing out tragic backstories, no matter how bad a shape you might be in.
  513. * DM high-fives Darte.

  516. * Corsava rolls her eyes. "This is Hal, Dex, Darte, and DM."
  517. <DM> [Harry]: Oh, I'm... I'm terribly sorry. Well then, we should.... well, is there a way out of here?
  518. <Corsava> "We pretend we can't see him."
  519. <DM> *Harry counts the people as Corsava lists them off, then gets to DM.
  520. * DM stares back blankly.
  521. <DM> [Harry]: Umm... I see.
  522. <DM> [Harry]: .... err, no I- augh!
  523. <DM> *You recall your one way out might've been a way out, except it's blocked by rubble.
  524. * Darte wonders if he can slip Harry into a pack for safe keeping. This is dangerous territory, wouldn't want him to get hurt and all.
  525. <DM> [Harry]: If there's, perchance, no way out... would I be able to accompany you? I... I don't want to stay buried behind a rock. Not the darkness... not again, not again....
  526. <DM> *Darte, I believe we established earlier on that sticking people instead of packs doesn't work. Despite the sheer items you can stick in, people just..... don't seem to fit.
  527. * Corsava shrugs "Sure. This place is dangerous enough as it is. An extra set of eyes never hurts. Besides, Interlopers are as deadly to you as to us, I imagine."
  528. <DM> *Harry follows along. New member gain, party up!
  529. <DM> [Harry]: Thanks, thanks so much, I hope, should we get out of this, I can repay you sometime!
  530. <DM> *Dex, now that you know how to pull things properly with proper force, wanna give another shot with the door?
  531. * Darte grumbles. "They always say that. Right now it's just a matter of making our exit."
  532. <Dex> yes
  533. <Corsava> "Do you want to use my bow, or my sword? I can use the other. I'm kind of limited without my trident, but action economy favors equipping you."
  534. <DM> *Darte momentarily turns into a Moblin that grumbles, then back into a fishman.
  535. * Dex force moves the door like he knows how to now.
  536. * Hal keeps a close watch on Harry, giving him a friendly Taunt. Roll Wisdom!
  537. <DM> *He holds his hands up, a bit away from your weapons.
  538. <DM> *He fails to roll outright and is taunted!
  539. <DM> *Dex, with your gloves clamped to the doors, you push them to the sides!
  540. <Darte> (You scared Kefka right outta the room with that taunt!)
  541. * Hal eyes Kefka noping away in his ambulance after making the taunt, feeling accomplished
  542. <Hal> *nopeing
  543. * Dex looks in the doorway.
  544. <DM> *Ahead, you see a large room, tilted slightly (you're starting on the bottom end, and it's only about a 20 degree slant, but it's noticeable). There's a big scope of some kind in the center of the room, surrounded by a ring of floating glass shards, very slowly rotating around the scope. You see the shards spread upwards towards the ceiling..... or lack thereof.
  545. <DM> *Hal, you recognize this as the room where the shards are floating up through the ceiling and gradually into SPAAAAAAACE.
  546. <DM> *Otherwise in this room, there's a shaft to the south, and another door to the north.
  547. <DM> *You're starting at the southeast corner.
  548. * Hal keeps Harry with him, making sure he doesn't see the shards.
  549. <DM> *Room is a bit on the dark side, but thanks to the dim light reflecting off all the shards, you can see pretty well.
  550. <DM> *Yeah, given how widespread the shards are, that's.... kinda difficult to stop him without outright preventing him from going into the room.
  551. * Dex walks over to the scope.
  552. <DM> *Dex, do you walk through the glass shards?
  553. <Dex> yes
  554. * Hal creates an Illusion of Object to imitate the door sliding back to its original position.
  555. <DM> *Alright. Since they're rotating slowly, it's not too bad. You feel some cuts passing through, taking 3 Neutral Damage, but otherwise, you get through it fine. Oddly, you're not lifting into the air like the shards are. Weird.
  556. <DM> *You inspect the scope, annnd it looks like it looks downwards, towards the direction of the Abyss. However, it's riddled with cracks and holes, and the glass inside of it has shattered. All you see looking through it is just, well.... that singularity abyss far below.
  557. <Dex> 12h 13m
  558. * Corsava attempts to avoid the shards and cross the room. "Well, what is it?"
  559. <DM> [Harry]: Oh, I guess the door is closed.
  560. * Dex examines the scope to the the scoop on the scope of the scope.
  561. * Darte wonders if it's the Riven rift scop
  562. <DM> *Harry waits on the hallway, believing Hal's illusion.
  563. <DM> *in
  564. <Corsava> Hal's inlusion?
  565. <DM> *Embedded inside the scope though.... you notice a smaller scope. You can't reach it with your short lizard arms though.
  566. <DM> *Also, now that you're in the center of the room, looking up through the hole in the ceiling, you can see another magnetic rock, larger than the previous one.
  567. * Corsava looks through the tall person scope
  568. <DM> *Whelp, you inadvertently walk through the shards and take the 3 Neutral Damage.
  569. <DM> *You look through the tall person scope, annnd you see the singularity of the abyss. Though, thanks to the broken glass, it's not really a scope so much as a hole in the ground.
  570. <DM> *You think you might be able to just reach that smaller scope embedded inside the big scope though...
  571. * Corsava shrugs and reaches for it
  572. <DM> *There's some glass shards in the way though, so you'd cut your arm if you t- whelp
  573. <DM> *In goes your arm, and out comes a bleeding arm with a smaller scope! It seems to be intact, asides from all the blood on it.
  574. * Hal waits around for the party to start walking back to the door.
  575. <Darte> (Can't be on too much later myself, early call tomorrow)
  576. <DM> *Yoink another 3 neutral damage too.
  577. <Darte> (Concern)
  578. * Corsava looks through the scope
  579. <DM> *Corsava's blood.
  580. <DM> *You look through it, and you can see the Abyss as if you were point-blank to it. Individual pieces of the ruins, floating Twili bodies that have long decayed, circling the bright glowy light of the vortex.
  581. <Corsava> "Huh..."
  582. * Corsava scopes the room with it, unsure if it will do anything, but maybe it'll show some secret door or something.
  583. <DM> *You look around the room with it. No matter where you look, the thing automatically adjusts as if you're standing several feet away from whatever it's scoping onto.
  584. <DM> *Nifty.
  585. * Corsava grins. "Neat."
  586. <DM> *You're not sure how entirely useful this is yet, but it might come in handy later.
  587. * Corsava looks at the rock with it
  588. * Dex looks at the rock.
  589. * Dex jumps at it and flips his gloves to "Attract".
  590. * Darte is befuddled by the scope, instead trying to head around the room, staying outside of the zany glass shard ring.
  591. <DM> *You look at the rock, and you see another pair of Magnetic Gloves on it. You also see a... what you can only describe as a rune. Something of Twili design.
  592. <DM> *Dex, you float on over to the rock in the sky.
  593. <DM> *Darte, you get around the room just fine, and upon approaching the door at the north end, you hear, from the other side of it.... snarls. Then a faint screeching sound.
  594. * Dex grabs the gloves.
  595. * Dex looks at the rune.
  596. * Darte screeches back. Rude door.
  597. * Hal looks over to Harry and points him over to the hole in the roof.
  598. <DM> *Darte, there's silence..... then something SLAMS the door, rumbling it, followed by a VERY LOUD screech, one that echoes throughout the whole room.
  599. * Hal meanwhile casts Illusion Break while he is turned.
  600. * Hal can feel the screech echo through into the hallway
  601. <DM> *Hal, he's about to look towards the hole, when the screech suddenly causes him to put his hands over his ears and he falls to the ground, shaking.
  602. <DM> [Harry]: No, not that sound! Not again! AUUUUUGH!
  603. <DM> *Dex, the rune looks like..... it's like a small rock with something engraved on it. You don't recognize anything about it. Not even understanding Twili seems to help you understand it.
  604. * Corsava "Harry?!"
  605. <DM> [Harry]: Get the sound out..... GET IT OUT OF HERE!
  606. <Hal> O.o
  607. * Dex takes the rune.
  608. <DM> *He starts to go a tad nuts, scrambling to get out of the room, only to bounce into several walls before collapsing to the floor.
  609. <Corsava> "Tag your triggers, Door!"
  610. <DM> *You haz the rune.
  611. <DM> *Harry goes nuts.
  612. <DM> *Darte, would you like to screech back again?
  613. * Hal is puzzled at the sound, the fox knowing trouble is brewing as he puts Magic cuffs on Harry
  614. * Hal is positive something is up with him.
  615. <DM> [Harry]: Will these... keep me safe?
  616. <Hal> It will.
  617. <DM> *Whelp Dex, from up on the rock, you hear the screech too.
  618. <DM> [Harry]: I... thank you. Please, I pray to the Goddesses, stay safe.
  619. * Darte passes on the screech and attempts a soothing fish warble instead.
  620. <DM> *He drops into a prayer stance.
  621. <DM> *Darte uhh... ........ uhhhhhh
  622. <DM> *Yeah, you hear silence again, then those intermittent Interloper whispers in your head, then silence again.
  623. <DM> *There's a slight tapping sound on the door.
  624. * Hal sets an Illusion of Sound over Harry, emulating the sound of calming water droplets in a hope to drown the noise out
  625. <DM> *Harry seems more at ease, in tune with the praying and the rain sounds. You almost see a holy aura around him sheerly from the peace.
  626. * Dex waves from on top of the rock.
  627. * Corsava shrugs and waves back
  628. <DM> *Darte, being in front of the door.... you hear some stomping noises. At first quiet, then rumbling louder and louder, getting closer to you.
  629. <DM> *Would you like to continue your warble or kindly dodge out of the wave?
  630. <DM> *way
  631. * Darte backs away from the door at a sprint, and attempts to slide along the floor under the shardstorm.
  632. <DM> *Hey, Darte is literally Darte Fellshard, HEYOOOOOOOOOOO!
  633. * Dex aims the rock at the door.

  639. <DM> *Suddenly, a shadowy beast with a metal shield on its front bursts through the door, wrecking straight through it and towards the middle of the room, straight towards the scope in the middle!
  640. <DM> *Which uhh... Corsava, you're directly in the way of it.
  641. * Corsava attempts to dodgeroll like dark souls
  642. <DM> *Darte, going down, you slide through the shardstorm, zipping through it once, past Corsava, then through the shards again, taking a total of 6 Neutral Damage as you slide to the other side of the room.
  643. * Darte wonders if he can cover Corsava.

  647. <Darte> 7h11m
  648. * Dex throws the extra magnet gloves to Hal.
  649. <DM> *You manage to barely sidle to the side of the scope when the beast thing outright rams the scope, the shockwave from the impact sending you flying into the side, through the shardstorm at a painful rate and into a nearby wall. 10 Neutral Damage total to you.
  650. <DM> *You attempt to throw the gloves, but they just come back to you.
  651. * Dex fires the rock straight down at the beast.
  652. <DM> *Dex, the only way to position that...... you are now floating in space, though you just hookshot back to the metal rock to stay on it.
  653. <DM> *The rest of you notice the shardstorm, as the rock moves closer, moves faster and faster, expanding outwards. Hal, you're in the hallway, so you're fine. Darte, you can probably run to the hallway.
  654. * Hal equips the Magnet Gloves as he hurried Harry back into the dark room, uttering "Something's coming"
  655. <DM> *Corsava...... uhh, you might need higher level shenanigans.
  656. <DM> *Dex, as the meteor falls, you manage to throw the Magnet Gloves in time to Hal, this time the gloves escape the pull.
  657. * Darte scoots to the hallway.
  658. <Corsava> $20d10
  659. <Navi> Corsava: You rolled 20 Dice with 10 Sides. Results: 9, 7, 8, 3, 3, 10, 10, 5, 1, 9, 3, 8, 5, 6, 3, 10, 9, 4, 4 and 7. Total: 124. Successes: 16.
  660. <DM> *Corsava, you air dash towards the hallway and just barely escape as the rotating shards of doom decimate the position you were just at.
  661. <DM> *Dex, the meteor finally falls, impacting that Shadow Beast HEAD-ON, APPLY DIRECTLY TO THE FOREHEAD! You hear a painfully painful screech cut through the air, then the sound of it getting drowned by the impact of the meteor. The scope is completely crushed under it, and the whirlwind of shards shockwaves the rest of the room.
  662. <DM> *The rock itself you're standing on fractures, but somehow, it stays in tact, and you yourself are fine.
  663. <DM> *In the hallway, the shards got a bit close to you guys, but you're pretty much fine.
  664. <Dex> T'was beauty that killed the beast.
  665. <DM> *Then, from the open door upon north, you hear another screeching sound, and Dex, looking towards it, you see something coming fast.
  666. <DM> *You mistake it for a Shadow Beast, but it draws in close, and you recognize it, leaping at you...
  667. <DM> -=LOADING=-
