Time to take a supersoldier into my enemy's stronghold and defeat his evilly wizardly ways!

:jozi2:"Grab my hand and hold on when we warp." Josie holds her hand out. I grab on.
:glinp2:"OK, but how come?"
:jozi2:"You'll see. You have to stay quiet, though."
:glinp2:"Mmm OK, ready." We warp to Zorgonok's Eeevil lair, but we get there totally silently and without any of the usual warping visuals! I look at her inquisitively.
:jozi2:"Perk for worshippers of The Manifold Shimmer. Stealth warps."
:glinp2:"Ooooh..." We're standing in front of the doors of Zorgonok's castle. Someone would see us if they looked straight down from the roof or out of a window on this side, but since we got here without the usual flashy and whooshy, I don't think anyone will!
:jozi2:"I'd like to do some quick recon. It should only take a few minutes at most, but you'd be on your own. If you busted in, that should keep attention away from me. Otherwise, we can bust in together and just wing it. Up to you. And hey."
:jozi2:"I'll keep you from dying as much as I can, but if you DO die, I'll retreat and call in an Unholy Eraser strike."
:glinp2:"What the FUCK you can DO that!?" She has that kind of firepower at her disposal??
:jozi2:"Yeah, but I'd rather you don't die, obviously. So, you think you can last for a couple minutes on your own? You'd know this guy better than I would."

Of course I can! But maybe I'd rather she just comes in and kicks ass right outta the gate?

See what you can find! Don't spend too long though
No. 927702 ID: 8eaf98

What do you mean? We legit have all the time in the world to check this place out. We can just revert to just after it warped out and spend just a minute searching one part of the room well and repeat till the whole room is well searched; by spending only one in world minute.

Check out the computer.

>check computer
Arright, lessee what we got on here. Rats, this guy's not one of those types who opens a zillion browser tabs at once. But we got a video sharing site, with a Let's Play of Planet of the Humans by 'farptusher', who I've nnnever heard of, but they got a decent view count. And, tentacle guy just ordered a ray gun from a gun seller called Raygun Mike's, which should arrive tomorrow. For non-browser stuff, they got a music player open. I put on the headphones and turn on the music, which explodes my head! Kids these days!! I guess you could call that 'trap music'...



So, trip gun to get 'em off guard, then I bust in and do a sweet dive and Super Fist 'em!
I land awkwardly on my side and toss the paranoiathol while they're clutching their stumps!
:glinp2:"Uffthink fast!"
The green cloud surrounds 'em and they look all concerned about somethin', but not the fact I just tossed a bottle that turned 'em green. They push me aside and peer out the door. Still bleeding. I catch some mumbles about politics, and idiots who don't know what they're talking about?
:glinp2:"Hey uh, what's goin' on? Hey!" I snap my fingers. "Disco flagellummm snot barbecue!" Nothing seems to get their attention, and after a while they up and plop to the ground, dead as a skatchbristle in Nundrit! What a weirdass chemical!
But now I can scope out the computer. Lucky me, they were watching the Let's Play and not listening to the music! It's the same deal as last time, except there's one more browser window: 'ketzapiles.ssspeep'! Aw, I go to that site too. Live Ketza pile streams are great for winding down. Or winding up. Depending. Geez, a paid membership too... Is that coming out of Zorgonok's budget??

I do a quick look around the room 'cause I kinda just wanna get outta this here maze! I find some paper and writing utensils. Looks like they've taken a buncha notes for video games. Dammit, I can kinda relate to this guy, and this friendium stuff didn't work out so good, so...

I revert to the way I did things before, where they escaped! And then I move on to that spooky dark room!
:zorgonok:"BOO!" One of those flying monitors activates!
:glinp2:"Yeeai-ai-ai!" I leap into the air! Zorgonok cackles. Grrr!
:zorgonok:"I see you're taking my advice and going slooowly! It's fine, not like I've captured your friends or anything!"
:glinp2:"Maaaan I'm one slow and troublesome escort!"
:zorgonok:"Yes, quite so! And eventually you'll be a still and manageable corpse! I'm looking forward to it!"
:glinp2:"Nooo, I'll get out and then meet up with my pals, and we'll kick your corpse butt instead! I'm looking forward to it!"
:zorgonok:"I'm quaking in my socks. Ooh, that's what I should do. Trilmus, write this down, I want to try making scale leggings out of this dim-witted dungeon diver..."

But now that I've got some light from the monitor, I'm scopin' out this chest that I spied on the other side of the room! It don't look half as nice as Miko's chest, but it's about the same colour. There's also a door over here, on the wall facing the entrance where I came in. Zorgo's screen was on the left when I came in, and the chest was on the right. I poke it with my spear. "Hey! Don't touch that!"
:glinp2:"Why not?" He raises his finger and opens his mouth.
:zorgonok:"... Actually, I don't think you'll figure it out anyway." He shrugs. "Go ahead! Open it." I cautiously pry open the latch with my spear and lift the lid up. There's another PCB inside! It's a lot more intricate.

:glinp2:"Thanks for the chatter, bonehead!" I say, opening the door and scopin' it out. Now THIS looks like a maze!

But boy, I really am lost here. I've only been in here a few minutes, but this place could be huge! I can keep doing like I have been, but... there's gotta be a better way! Something I haven't tried at all yet...
No. 928652 ID: b1b4f3

This PCB looks like a map of a maze. Perhaps the same maze you're in.

...oh god is the OTHER PCB a map too?
No. 928654 ID: 91ee5f

>I've captured your friends
It’s believable that he’s captured Aki, but capturing Josie? Yeah, right! He doesn’t have anything that can hold her! You’ve seen how she easily handles the guards and the puzzles, so there’s nothing to be worried about.

>map of maze
If that’s true, then we need to figure where we are in order for it to be useful.
No. 928658 ID: a9af05

>I've captured your friends!
"You mean those two pissed off ladies right behind you?"

But there is no way he managed to capture Josie, he's just trying to get you to panic with worrying over your friends. And panicking would cause you to make mistakes, which is what he wants.
No. 928660 ID: a9af05

If he actually turns around, laugh at him and say that you made him look!
No. 928672 ID: f46e5e

the hallways there do not match up with what we have seen thus far at all. that maze is hex based, not square based. what if we break the PCBs? starting with the maze one. I guess the other can be called the 'basic' one or 'red dot' one?
I was thinking frendium before the mortal wound but whatever.
interesting that lich here says we are going slow. In real-time we have been going what I would call a normal or even brisk pace.
>>928658 >>928660 messing with the lich has always been fun, so we should do this. If he falls for it now then we can probably use it against him in person. Particularly if we undo having done it now; either way, WE can still get a kick out of it. =)
One more thing, if he falls for it we should do it twice to see if anything subtle changes in his reaction. If we include reversions we have taken this somewhat slow.
Dangit you keep making me paranoid about using our power! Plz stop.
No. 928745 ID: 83bf07

Are there any buttons you can press on that maze map?

Doesn't seem like there's any buttons on it.

>the old "what's that behind you!" trick


:zorgonok:"It's fine, not like I've captured your friends or anything!"
:glinp2:"You mean those two pissed-off fuzzballs behind you?" I hear a quiet 'eep,' but it's not from him.
:zorgonok:"Please! You think a tired trick like that is going to work on me?" Aww, fiddlesticks. "No, Trilmus, there's no one there..."
:glinp2:"It was worth a shot! Maaaan I'm one slow and troublesome escort!" Etc., etc., chatter, bonehead.

I snap the maze pcb, and nothin' special happens that I can see! It does seem like it's got some actual circuitry.


so I undo that.
I did dally in the tv room looking for porn and stuff, and then trying on clothes! That might be what he's talking about.

sheeeit, well by the looks of things, the room I was just in, with the treasure box on one side, leads into a hexagonal maze! Just through the door, there's a dead-end corner on the immediate right, and a path next to it that turns to the right. On the left, there's one path splitting off, and past that, a right turn.
I bet they're both maps! Then if I determined where I am, I could navigate easy, if I picked a room I wanted to go to! Fast, too!

Do I know where I'm at?
And where am I goin'?
No. 929082 ID: 51d964

Looks like you're at the side entrance. Let's go to the closest electronic chip.
No. 929083 ID: b1b4f3

Yeah you're at the "top" corner, with the path that leads off the board.

Head to the chip on the left.
No. 929092 ID: a9af05

If this guy is annoying you, then you should make him go away. And the best way to do that is to distract him with something else. How do you do that? Simple. Tell him about how the tentacle guy didn't have time to close out of the live ketza pile websiteon his computer, when you broke into his room. And the tentacle guy also has a paid membership to the website coming out of his (Zorgonok's) budget!

That should get him to leave you alone for a while.
No. 929099 ID: 8eaf98

>It does seem like it's got some actual circuitry.
Wonder if it has a magic link to the real world too. Like if we change the board we change the maze. If we could just make straight lines between all the places it would be even easier than it already is with a map.
No. 929139 ID: e7848c

Right, left, left, right, right. Would get you out of there.

I'd like to check out some of those rooms we skipped back there, even if it means reverting instead of back tracking. Especially curious about that red button room.
No. 929156 ID: 91ee5f

Wrong one.

We’re in this maze here: >>928646 .
No. 929160 ID: 8eaf98

No, we CAN go to that maze, I too want to know about this red button room!
No. 929164 ID: 91ee5f

Yeah, we can go there, but we need to get through this maze first. Which means that we need to use the other map before we can go there.
No. 929166 ID: 055cbc

What? no, we just came FROM there. All we have to do to get there is turn around.
No. 929181 ID: a9af05

No, we came from a portal that put us in a completely different part of the castle. In order to get back to where you want to go, we'd have to revert and do all of this all over again.

I don't think it's worth the effort of doing that.
No. 929198 ID: 8eaf98

we portaled into pcb1, got pcb2 at the connection point between pcb 1 and 2 (wonder if they fit together somehow) zero reversion are needed to explore pcb1

Maybe the original manufacturing equipment is what you need to change it? Or some other tools with the right enchantments? That'd be... kind of neat? But also weird. I dunno!

This is right.
When I put 'em together so the passages line up, they click together!

Closest is uh... the one with the light grey box that's probably another chest? I head there and it's got a mysterious potion inside!

I get one mysterious potion!

I head back to the pcb1 area so I can look at those rooms.
:zorgonok:"Backtracking? Returning to the scene of your latest arson, perhaps?"
:glinp2:"You got it, bonesy! And did you know that tentacle person has a paid membership to ketzapiles dot speep? If you're payin' 'em, that means it's comin' outta your budget!" He grinds his teeth.
:zorgonok:"No doubt you're just trying to rile me up! Well, that won't work either! And even if he does... It's his money after I give it to him! Though I certainly don't approve of that... Bah! Bah! Say, how DID you escape that wretched realm I sent you to? I'd never sent anyone there before, but it looked horrible!" I just shrug. "What will it take to get RID of you! Oh, hold on." He turns away. "What? It's not one of...? When did it get here?" He turns back to me. "Seems I have something else to investigate! Try to die before I get back!"
:glinp2:"Smell you later!" He snorts and pulls the monitor back into a vent or something. I move on. I can hear the closet stuff burnin' and there's thick smoke all in the TV room!

But I ain't goin' there. First up is the light room. It's a kitchen! A messy one. There's human body parts in the freezer. All seems pretty standard. Then the room on the left is a... what's that sound... Something's coming? It's dark in here, so I feel around real quick for a hiding spot. Alright, nobody should-
:glinp2:"BA-HUUN-YAHNGAHOOEEE!" Damn, talk about a cloaca-clenching moment! It was right next to me!!
:genericnpc:(bone rattling)
:glinp2:"Skelly!? How the fuck did YOU get in here?" It's the skeleton I summoned way back in the fist temple! And it brought the transformed Tosfir! It doesn't answer me, though. "Err, you should come with me for now I guess." We go to the red circle room. There's a red button in there! And what am I gonna do, NOT press it?

I get sucked into a vortex and spit back out! Skeleton and Tosfir are here too.
:glinp2:"Aaaaaa oh hi Josie! And Tsuchinoko! And Aki!"
:jozi2:"Thought I'd have to come in there looking for ya! And I see you brought friends. And skinned a Neumono, that's hardcore. Did you figure out the pcb was a map?" Tsuchinoko squeaks from her shoulder. Aki nods.
:glinp2:"I didn't skin any Neumonos, but yes! How did you know! I mean, the map, and where I was, how, spill the secrets!"
:jozi2:"I saw the maze when I was scouting earlier, and I recognized the shape. Thought that was a weirdass thing to do."
:glinp2:"How'd you know I got put in there!"
:jozi2:"C'mon, you really want all my secrets?"

:jozi2:"Well, that's tooooo bad~ But I got a question for you. What do you make of these things?"
No. 929434 ID: b1b4f3

Reminds me of a Megaman boss refight room.
No. 929435 ID: a9af05

Ask Josie and Aki if they just escaped from being captured. Because Zorgonok said that he captured them, even though you knew he was full of shit and it was impossible for him to capture them.

Then ask Aki what happened to her when you got split up from her on the stairs? And explain what happened to you.

>What do you make of these things?
Aren't those teleporters from the space station earlier?
No. 929438 ID: 91ee5f

Yeah, I can see that too.

Aw, shit, does this mean we have to refight the bosses from the previous missions?
No. 929458 ID: 83bf07

We should bust them open!
No. 929477 ID: 864e49

They look very breakable.

:glinp2:"They look like teleporter chambers... and..." I investigate closer and see that they're hooked up to the door on the other side of the room. "Oh it's one of those things where you go through 'em all and do something, and that opens the door?"
:jozi2:"Got it in one! But whatever it is, you'll have to do it without me."
:nsaki:"I will join you, if you like."

:glinp2:"First, let me see if I can..." I try bustin' one with the pickaxe!
"Gwoooogh!" It just hurts my arm a lot. Must be some tough stuff!
:jozi2:"I don't think I can tear that door open if you break these, y'know."
:glinp2:"Right..." Real quick, I check what awaits through each one. The lone one on this level is Stanath! So it is a boss rush deal, huh? Wonder how he's pullin' that off...


The one underneath the upper one is the rock monster, which leeeaves...


The one on the upper level, Letiel!

Which one am I gonna try first, and am I bringing Aki? With my new powers, I should be able to take 'em on better than before, though I don't have the same items or partner...
For whichever one I pick, what's my strats?
No. 929906 ID: e7848c

My vote goes to the necromancer if only because she was a puzzle boss. I wonder if there's some sort of hidden mechanic to disable her regeneration again. Plus we can try press her for info about the ghost dicks again.
No. 929913 ID: b1b4f3

The necromancer should be pretty much the same fight, since you did most of the work before and it's not like super punch is gonna do much anyway.
The rock beast will be awkward but maybe a bit easier than before, now that you have super punch.
Stanath is going to be the worst one. Aki's durability should help a lot but the main issue is that you're gonna get your ass shot as soon as you try to Super Jump at her... unless she's distracted or disabled somehow. Maybe Aki and you can split up to force her to only shoot at one at a time?

Let's work on teamwork with Aki. Go for the necromancer, and tell Aki how the fight works beforehand.

:jozi2:"I don't think I can tear that door open if you break these, y'know."
:glinp2:"Right... Well I pick mmm, THAT one, up there! Stay here, Skelly."
:nsaki:"Very well." Aki and I climb up there.
:glinp2:"See ya soon, Joze!" I do a salute, and she salutes back.
:jozi2:"And just when we were together again..."
:glinp2:"Oh it's the necromancer lady!" The displays on the walls turn into something vaguely like the room in the temple, with a torch showing on each. "As long as the torches were lit, she could regen!"
:letiel:"You will meddle no more!" She starts attackin' right away! I have to dodge around to avoid getting speared by her tail!
:letiel:"HMMM!?" She floats out of the way of the attack, but it does seem to hit her!
:glinp2:"She had enchantments on her to resist spells too!"
:nsaki:"That attack isn't a spell. Ah, not where I came from." She makes a Mage Hand and goes to grab Aki, but they're a fast dodger! No problem gettin' away.
:glinp2:"How's those ghost dicks treating you, huh Letiel?"
:letiel:"In a minute, you can ask them yourSELF!"

I'll just review my most likely useful items here. That might give me some ideas on how to handle this!
Friendium Paranoiathol, ghost disguise, decorative skull, magic body armor, enchanted pickaxe, energy drinks, mysterious potion, trip gun, portable hole deployer
Do I got any good ideas? Or maybe even stupid ones!
No. 930449 ID: e7848c

Wait wait wait wait wait. If those torches are on a digital screen can we even take them out? We might need to see if Aki can do some digital fuckery to the monitors. Melt one of the screens with a fireball and drink the potion just to test what it does.
No. 930453 ID: 91ee5f

Tell Aki about what Letiel‘s weakness is.

I axe into a wall, and bust off a chunk of monitor. The broken chunk is still displaying stone wall! I grab it for further experimenting.

What IS Letiel's weakness?

:glinp2:"Aki, can you do technomancy on these screens?" They dodge under a swipe.
:nsaki:"No." I fireball one of the torches and it scorches the surface of the screen, but the torch flames are still goin'.
Whoop, she almost nicked my tail! Run run run!
:letiel:"You won't win a second time, meddler!" Let's see what this potion does!
It makes me real big!
:letiel:"You're a bigger fool than I anticipated!" She goes to stab my leg, but her tail is deflected! "WHAT?"

Hah, it makes me tougher too! Well, do I keep going with this and see if I can win by being big, or do I save this potion for later?
No. 930684 ID: e7848c

Mega super punch the moniter now. If there still is no damage, save the potion for another boss. Leit would just regen being smooshed.
No. 930687 ID: b1b4f3

Well try smashing her to see if she still heals despite the torches not being real. If she's not healing like before then you can just smash her up with super fist or whatever, without the potion.
No. 930714 ID: dfefe4

Try throwing her at her own digital torches. Battle of the two indestructible objects!
No. 930724 ID: 91ee5f

>"You won't win a second time, meddler!"
So she remembers the first time?

You might as well keep going, just to see how long the potion’s effects last.

After that, revert so that you can save the potion for another boss.
No. 930730 ID: 0d72fd

See if you can kick her ass within the potions limits.
At least to see if she is immune to excessive force.

It seems your pimp gear has increased in power, are you able to flaunt that much coat?
No. 930745 ID: a9af05

Looks like your clothes grew with you. At least you don't have to worry about destroying your clothes and being naked when the potion's effects wear off.
No. 930775 ID: 8eaf98

>>930745 unless the clothing growth is permanent and the body growth isn't for some reason.
Also a question: what if you just ate her you seem big enough for it right now. Would be funny if it could also be a potentially permanent shrinking potion for things added while large.
No. 930782 ID: 91ee5f

>unless the clothing growth is permanent and the body growth isn't for some reason.
This quest seems silly enough for that to be a possibility.

Yahahah! Destruction! Wow, the splintered monitor pieces still work!
:letiel:"Die, you fool!!"
>-plink, plink, plink-
Her attempts to stab my toes are ineffective!

Oh gods I felt her skeleton snapping. Yeesh. But the torches glow and it looks like the healing works!
>-splutch, thump-
I toss her at a torch. No effect.

>eat her!
She's WAY too spiky and crunchy and poisonous for me to try that!
Aaand I'm back to normal size anyway.


I go back to big time and Giant Super Fist her! It's actually not more effective, but I grab her by the tail and swing her against stuff until her... head pops off.
:nsaki:"Did that do it?"
>-zoit, crash!-
We're zapped back into the tube, which breaks!
:jozi2:"HELLO!" Hahah I've never seen her so surprised! She composes herself almost immediately, but not me!
:glinp2:"Aaaa!" Aki squeezes out from under me.
:nsaki:"We (urgh) won rather abruptly."

OK so I know that works, but the potion would be better for some other thing, so what'll I try against ol' spike-butt next?
No. 930916 ID: 91ee5f

Ok, so the torches in the monitors still heal her and you can’t turn put them out this time. But apparently all you need to do is take her head off and you’ll win!

It looks like the new battle plan it to decapitate her when your revert.

>Hahah I've never seen her so surprised!
Too bad you can’t take a picture and not have it get erased when you revert!
No. 930917 ID: 8eaf98

it is not yet known what exactly kills her, decapitation works, but what is the actual trigger? heart stoppage? brain stoppage? both? specifically decapitation? Aki seems like she might be able to manage decapitation without augmentation.
No. 930927 ID: b1b4f3

Ok new battle plan is to just keep attacking her with your spear, quickly switching to lopping off limbs once the healing becomes apparent, and then try lopping off her head. Shouldn't be suspicious.
