Geometric Archipelago:Ignorance on Circle Island/Chapter 10
Chapter Ten: Battle for Cavern Door
<mainstreet> ---START GAME---
<mainstreet> As the door opens...
<mainstreet> *poof* goes Elysia!
<mainstreet> As the door continues to open... you see a trio of guards standing just inside the door, swords out and aiming at the invaders.
<Capn_Marcus> "Buh?" Realizing his cover is gone, Marcus quickly hops back to hide behind the T-Rex's leg.
<mainstreet> "Access is unauthorized," the middle guard announces.
<Sanni> "Really? How'd we get the door open then?"
<mainstreet> "The lock was picked."
<mainstreet> "Fortunately it is on a time delay."
<mainstreet> "Now die, intruders."
<mainstreet> The guards raise their weapons.
<Capn_Marcus> Marcus talks to his hands. "Well, looks like you guys are going to get me out of another fine mess." He raises them and wiggles his fingers intimidatingly.
<Capn_Marcus> Realizing that this action does little to keep the guards at bay, he instead starts wiggling them in a more productive manner, starting on casting a spell.
<Capn_Marcus> Marcus blinks in surprise as everyone stands around in awe, watching him cast - he actually manages to finish the spell without anyone interrupting. "Huh. That's new." As he finishes, a ritual circle appears on the ground; there's a flash of light, and a trio of short demon-looking creatures leap out, giggling in an entirely unsettling manner.
<Capn_Marcus> They immediately charge forward, interposing themselves between Marcus and the guards, ready to rush forward and strike.
Brellius cautiously steps towards the guards and swings his halberd at the closest one.
<mainstreet> The halberd *thwacks* into the middle thug, and the follow through dings back into Brellius.
Sanni grabs her wand of magic missile aiming at the thug on the right side and casts the spell
<mainstreet> The three thugs charge at Brellius, slashing at them with their swords in near unison!
<mainstreet> Unfortunately for said thugs, they all miss.
Kanzel jumps at the thug closest to her and attacks from behind.
<mainstreet> Unfortunately, Kanzel's jump falls a good foot short of her attacker and she misses completely.
<Capn_Marcus> "YEEEEEARGH!" The trio of demons (whom Marcus decides to name Larry, Moe, and Curly Joe) charge forward, growling and snickering, baring their claws and slashing!
<mainstreet> Moe and Curly manage to slash a bit into their respective foe's sides. They grunt a bit. Larry, meanwhile, falls flat on his face after taking two steps. The others snicker at him.
Brellius grunts as he lifts up his halberd and delivers a huge overhead strike on the guard in front of him, and then quickly follows up with a second swipe
<mainstreet> The thug screams as the halberd slices through him, barely touching Brellius on the follow through.
Sanni aims her wand at the left thug, casting again
<mainstreet> The left thug blinks as the missiles burn into him a bit.
<mainstreet> The thugs look at each other, then aim to impale their respective monsters.
<mainstreet> Two of the thugs succeed at this. The right thug also pulls off a slash but the dretch barely remains standing
<Capn_Marcus> "My babies! NOOOO!"
Kanzel strikes again at the same thug
<mainstreet> "GAH!" the thug complains as he's slashed at.
<Capn_Marcus> Marcus, angry over the loss of his new friends, waves his arms around like one of those inflatable tube-guy things you see at car dealerships. "TENTACLE'D!" A dark hole of darkness opens up beneath the guards, and a series of black tentacles slither their way out to molest them (no, not in that way).
<mainstreet> One of the guards (the left) is grabbed firmly amongst the tentacles.
Brellius begins spinning his halberd like a giant, shiny buzzsaw and then lunges forward at the rightmost guard with a mad gleam in his eye
<mainstreet> This time, Brellius cleanly slices that guard in half, banging himself slightly on the follow through.
Sanni raises her wand again, firing at the middle gard. She then looks up "T-rex, go eat the guards"
<mainstreet> The missiles plow into the middle guard. The Rex turns and looks quizzically at Sanni for a brief second, before charging at the left guard.
<mainstreet> The Rex aims to eat said guard but instead ends up chomping on his own teeth.
<mainstreet> The middle thug takes a swipe at Kanzel!
Kanzel attacks the middle thug back
<mainstreet> THe middle thug is sliced into many little pieces by the flailing swords as Kanzel just avoids falling into the tentacles.
<Capn_Marcus> With the last remaining guard under wraps, so to speak, Marcus reaches into his robe. "'Scuse me while I whip THIS out!"
<Capn_Marcus> He produces a wand, and proceeds to let fly a trio of Magic Missiles at his unfortunate target.
<mainstreet> "AUGH!" The Magic Missiles, combined with the tentacles wrapping around him, hurt the remaining guard very badly.
<Capn_Marcus> "He's wounded! Should we try to capture him?"
<Brellius> "I'm not really equipped to capture at the moment. Anyone else have rope or something?"
<Kanzel> "Isn't he already tied up?"
<Capn_Marcus> "Those tentacles won't last forever. Plus they'll probably kill him."
<Brellius> "They'll probably kill him soon. Should I finish him off or do you guys have another idea?"
<Sanni> "We could feed him to the t-rex"
<Capn_Marcus> Marcus yells at the guard. "Hey, you! Have you got any good reason for us to not kill you?"
<mainstreet> The guard can't speak, being wrapped by tentacles.
<Brellius> "Well...I'll make it quick." Brellius walks up to the last guard and takes a swipe at his head, being careful to avoid the tentacles
<mainstreet> Brellius slices the last guard neatly in half, hitting himself a bit on the follow through.
<Capn_Marcus> "Geez, Brellius. Not exactly what I'd call a mercy kill."
<Capn_Marcus> The tentacles squeeze what's left of the guard like a stress-relief toy bofre tossing the pieces aside.
<Brellius> "As opposed to letting him get crushed to death?"
<Capn_Marcus> "Hey, I could have called them off. But then he might have gotten away and locked us out again."
<Capn_Marcus> The tentacles shrug.
