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?

Revert and try that again but using the sulphagne after you slime grenade it. Dematerialize it's face!

>Use sulphagne to dematerialize beast
I still don't think there's enough to take out anything big, but it's worth a try...


:genericnpc:"We've got you THIS time, adventurers!"
I drink the Sulphagne, which tastes pretty bad. At least there's not much of it... but in fact, it wears off before I can finish erasing the catbeast! Dammit... Maybe there's something with less mass that I could use it on. I get the beast to glow some, but it's an all-or-nothing deal, so it goes back to normal, and then it breaks free from the goop!

...Huh, the warm shiny doesn't resist being inventoried anymore! Maybe you have to wait a while? I put it in, and the beast just... it walks away! The cold starts coming back. I take it out again and the beast comes back at me!

And now it's hard to put away again!

No. 919574 ID: 91ee5f

The warm thing is actually a tracker for the cat! It resists being inventoried as a way for the cat to keep coming after you! Once you let it go or successfully inventory it, the cat will lose interest in you!

Maybe the trick is to get rid of the other goons first, without holding the warm thing so that the cat doesn’t come after you? Then kill then cat when the other minions are gone.

But if the cat attacks anyone holding the warm thing, you can probably trick it into attacking the other minions by throwing it at them and hoping they catch and hold it.
No. 919583 ID: b1b4f3

What, why does the cat... it doesn't make sense for the shiny thing to be a tracker. I think the cat just really wants the shiny thing. It's like a toy to it, probably.
No. 919609 ID: 4dc321

Revert to before you took the warm shiny out of your inventory, and then don't take it out. Explore the area for more loot instead.

Was that an Energy Sword here? >>919305
No. 919612 ID: 91ee5f

>energy sword?
Unfortunately, that’s just a decoration that lights up. It’s not a real energy sword.

I go back to a peaceful time when I didn't waste the sulphagne, and I could get the shiny in my inventory, a peaceful time with no weird monsters obviously trying to tackle me. The shiny being like a toy to it seems like a good guess. It escapes the slime and wanders around now, making quiet weird noises and ignoring me! Good.

I punch it in the butt and it baps me with its tail!
:glinp2:"Hwouf!" I stumble backward. It doesn't seem to care about me. Huh!

Josie and Aki finish killing those persistent resurrecting guys.
:jozi2:"Whoo! What's next? Why'd the creature stop attacking?"
:glinp2:"Exploring for loot I guess! And I managed to put away the ornament or whatever and it just stopped!"
:jozi2:"Huh, ok." Tsuchinoko looks at Josie and chirps and wiggles. "What's that?" It hops toward her and looks up. "You want a Tozol ride?" She holds out her hand. "Sure." It springs onto her shoulder.

I get 3 krels! from looking in the couch cushions in the sitting room. Sure, ok.
The only other promising place to look for loot seems to be the meat freezer! Just my luck. While I slide around on the floor, I notice a spot that shifts slightly under my weight. Could be a switch under there! But I don't think I weigh enough to activate it.

So, how can I press the mystery floor button? It's in the third aisle, the one I didn't go down to get the shiny, and I don't automatically go through if I just slide from one door to the other.
No. 919916 ID: 91ee5f

>But I don't think I weigh enough to activate it.
>So, how can I press the mystery floor button?
Look for a bunch of food and eat all of it to make yourself weigh more?

Alternatively, all 3 of you could stand on that spot.
No. 919927 ID: b1b4f3

You could smash it with your pickaxe?
No. 919932 ID: 60d47a

The long way around is to put the shiny on the plate after attracting that beast. It definitely looks heavy enough with all that armor.

Other than that i second scarfing some food.
See what you can thaw with a fire blast that wont be charbroiled.
No. 919939 ID: 864e49

You could try dumping some of the meat onto the floor switch.
No. 920003 ID: 471393

Those shelves are secure, right? No chance of knocking one over onto the button?
No. 920005 ID: a9af05

It actually does make sense. Got an adventurer in your castle and looting your stuff? Make one of the things they try to loot something that brings a creature that attacks them when they try to take it!

>Eat a bunch of food?
A silly answer might actually work, so I guess we could try that.

>Everyone stand on it?
Yeah, that also works.

Good thing my dark vision's so good! I'd hate to not be able to see what I'm doin'...

I try pickaxing the panel while I slip past it, but predictably, all that does is break the panel!


So I undo that.

The shelves are remarkably sturdy. They ain't goin' noplace, no sirree!

I toss the shiny over there, but it just slides to the wall and bounces back. Dang slippery floor! I see the cat comin' to get it immediately. Eek! It's like it teleported! Or I just didn't notice it standing outside the room.



It'd take a real long time to thaw and eat enough to make much difference in my weight! So that's a no go. I do firebreath one piece of chicken, just to try it, and it comes out OK! I offer to do it again for Aki and Josie, but Josie declines politely. Aki agrees to try it, and their fur goes back to normal when they eat it!
:glinp2:"Is that... normal?" I make a wiggly gesture at the side that was all scorched a second ago.
:nsaki:"Mhm." They nod.

>All stand on the panel
I suggest this, and Josie picks Aki and me up in each arm and carries us to the panel, since she's the only one that can stand still in here. Tsuchinoko hops off rather than go in the cold room.
:glinp2:"I don't blame ya, pal!" Aaand the panel does come down more! Just not enough. Piling food on the panel doesn't help noticeably.

Where are we gonna get more weight...
No. 920213 ID: 8f36f1

No. 920214 ID: b1b4f3

Is that a freakin' pushable block in the corner? Is this room a sliding block puzzle?!
No. 920271 ID: 69a63f

I cant think of anything.

Try a disguise and see if what you become might overcome the weighted switch.
No. 920274 ID: 91ee5f

Yeah, that’s what it looks like.

Let’s go push that block onto the floor panel.

I suggest recreating the STONE CATERPILLAR and bringing it up here, but Josie says she thinks there's a faster way, and my way might not work. She also says that she thinks I can do this without her or Aki's assistance!

I use my spear to guide myself over to the buncha-boxes-on-a-wood-palette, which bounces off the wall and slides back toward me! I narrowly avoid injuring myself by redirecting myself while it continues to bounce and slide between two walls. It doesn't seem like it's gonna stop any time soon.

How do I get it to the panel, and theeeen how do I get it to stop there?
No. 920334 ID: b1b4f3

Well due to conservation of momentum if you hit it again (in the direction opposite of movement) it'll stop. So hit it when it's at the right position to turn it into the pressure plate aisle, then hit it again when it's on the plate.
No. 920337 ID: a9af05

Do this.
No. 920609 ID: 7fd053

:glinp2:"Is it getting slightly warmer in here?" It's still like having a gang of giant ice elementals blowin' on me from every direction, but like they're startin’ to lose enthusiasm about it now.
:jozi2:"Yeah. There's backup power going, but I'd guess they figured people wouldn't be opening and closing this room so much, so the freezer cooling doesn't get backup power." She shrugs.

I can get it to go into the pressure plate aisle with a good kick into the wall, which jostles the boxes so they almost fall off. When I bump into it to stop it on the plate, they DO fall off, and now there's stuff slidin' everywhere and it's a mess!
:glinp2:"Nyaaaagh!" Aki gives an exasperated/dismayed chuckle.

Should I ask Josie for a hint, or even the answer directly? It's probably something simple...
No. 920611 ID: 91ee5f


Fire breath on the floor to melt the ice, then push the block onto the pressure plate. No ice on the floor means that the block won’t slide over the pressure plate continuously.
No. 920612 ID: b1b4f3

Yeah. Simple.
No. 920645 ID: a9af05

This should work.

Since the room is getting warmer from us keeping the doors open, the ice should be easier to melt.

There we go! A little flame breath on the panel, and things go a lot smoother!
I crash into the boxes on the rebound again, but this time I can stop myself while they go flyin'. A circuit board drops down from the ceiling, and I catch it!
:glinp2:"What're you laughin' at!"
:jozi2:"That pcb you just caught. Wow. I shouldn't tell you why it's funny yet. Maybe later."

With that out of the way, there's nothing left on this floor, so it's finally time to decide how to get to that third level! Stairs or elevator?
No. 920891 ID: a9af05

>Maybe later.
She better tell us later! I want to know what's so funny!

>Stairs of elevator?
Take the stairs.
No. 920905 ID: b1b4f3

No. 920923 ID: 91ee5f

Take the stairs.
No. 920945 ID: e7848c

Make it a promise, Josie!
Divide and conquer. You and Aki take the elevator while Joz takes the stairs.

We move on outta this room that's still too damn cold. "Make it a promise!"
:jozi2:"Sure, I promise!" She rubs her chin. "Hmm. Just in case, I'll tell you that it's not just a circuit board. There's more to it." I start us back toward the stairs.
:glinp2:"Just in case?"
:glinp2:"Uuuu ok! Well, I think we should split up. Josie, YOU can take the elevator. Aki, shall we take the stairs?"
:nsaki:"Very well."
:jozi2:"See you soon!" She does a little salute and dashes off, vanishing in the blink of an eye!
:glinp2:"So how ya holdin' up?"
:nsaki:"You don't need to worry about me. How are you?"
:glinp2:"Chilly as FUCK and hoping the rooms on the next floor ain't as cold, 'cause that's gonna slow me down."

We reach the stairs, and as we climb up, some magic sparklies surround us!
:nsaki:"What is this?"
:glinp2:"Iiii don't know!"

Gah it was some kinda teleporter thing! Now I'm in... a weird place. It's... almost comfortable temperature. Still a little cool. There's a layer of fog on the floor, and I can't distinguish the boundaries of wherever this is, and there's weird critters with fangs! And a glowing doorway? But maybe there's other stuff around, if I look around more. Who knows where that doorway goes!
What should I investigate?
No. 920974 ID: 83bf07

Have spear at the ready. Nudge those things away if they get too close. Investigate door.
No. 920983 ID: 5c730f

Don't go in door directly: Throw an eye into it.

I can't throw my eyes, but I can pick up one of these li'l weirdos with my spear and toss it through!
It vanishes in a flash of light!
>-chitter, chitter-
They're comin' for me! I can't tell if they're blind, 'cause sometimes they look right at me and other times they don't seem to be looking at... anything.
>-bchoof, hisssss-
The one I threw (I assume) comes skittering back out the doortal. Followed by another weird thing that's a bit larger! "Uhhhh hi?" This one looks less organic, and it's also seekin' me out! "Hey, can you not come closer?" None of them act like they understood me, so maybe they didn't. These guys are all real slow so I investigate the door and discover that it is in fact set into a wall! It's against in a corner. So now I know there are walls. Things kinda fade off all weird when they're farther away, so I can't tell where the walls are unless I get close. "G'wan, git!" I wave my spear at the weird things! No reaction...

Should I try speakin' in a rougher language (violence)?
Or try feelin' along a wall to see if I can find more stuff?
Or say 'fuck it' and hop through the shiny portal?
Or something else?
No. 921359 ID: 83bf07

Make a lap around the room with your spear running against the wall. Go through the door if nothing is learned.
No. 921370 ID: b1b4f3

Just feel the outline of the room for now.
No. 921793 ID: 372c2e

Yeet past it, or maybe try dislodging it woth a staff attack!

Using my spear, I feel out the edges of the room. I can't tell how high the ceiling is. I have to push away the walking head thing, which I notice has the same kind of gross, pupilless eye as the hand monsters, but it only has one, and it's on the purple part above the head. It's faster than the hand things and I'm gettin' kinda tired of havin' to constantly avoid all these things!
>-tap tap-
I bap the head thing with my spear. Feels weighty, but I bet I could lift it and toss it a ways if I had to.

>-"hssss!" Bap!-
One of the hands pounces at me and I have to knock it outta the air! Maybe they're gettin' bolder!

I scoop up another hand and toss it in.
Gone! Vanished into thin air! It comes back out and nothin' follows it... yet.
Now, walkin' in the direction the doorway faces, I find a corridor outta the room, and into another one.

I DON'T like what I see! Stepping towards MEEE
No. 921805 ID: b1b4f3

Well the white door is pretty much confirmed safe so go ahead and use it. I expect it'll just lead to more of the weird hand things though.
No. 921819 ID: bd187c

Oh hey that's a nope! Would throwing the Friendium Paranoiathol do anything?
No. 921854 ID: 8eaf98

I get the impression that the PCB is the phylactery, but I guess it isn't large, though it doesn't look like anything special to me, and it did require a lot of mass (possible rough interpretation of large) to acquire.
Also is that a red button on the PCB, regardless push the red circle on the PCB.
is there any reason we never went back to save the stickys we spent checking the empty side routes in the fist temple?
No. 922089 ID: 7fd053

I toss the Friendium Paranoiathol at the portal monster, careful not to toss it into its portal.
:genericnpc:"GLRG" says the big monster! A sickly green cloud covers it, and it begins aggressively swiveling around to suck up the hand monsters! They're all agrroed to me and don't try to avoid this weird fate. It makes weird grunting noises as it goes. Once the hand monsters are through, it sucks up the head monster. It sits still for a bit, and then another hand comes down from the ceiling and gets sucked up, and then it keels over and dies.
The monster's portal deactivates, and a spirit comes out and vanishes, like with those robots on the first floor.

I press the red circle on the PCB. Nothing happens!

Well then! I step through the glowing door.
:nsshade:"Oh, you must have tossed them in here." There's a spookster here with a campfire! "Hello, newcomer. Are you hungry?"
No. 922091 ID: 6960dd

:glinp2:"Thanks, but I'm good. You seen a Renamon around here? Yellow and white furry biped with a puffy tail, weird shoulder things? " I do some motions to show where the shoulder things are.
:nsshade:"No, you're the only newcomer I've seen in ages." Their voice is smooth and ethereal. Sounds like a young human man who is a ghost.
:glinp2:"Oh, well if you see someone like that, it might be the one I'm looking for."
:nsshade:"Alright. Come, sit by the fire. You're a lizardfolk, right? I seem to remember those get cold easily." They laugh. "But it's been a while..."
:glinp2:"Surrre." I sit across the fire from the stranger. "You remember right! But who are you, and what's this place?"
:nsshade:"Oh yeah, introductions. Haha. You can call me Shade. I was a human once, just a young man." Well there ya go. He takes a bite from their crispy hand critter, snapping the bones and chewing. "As far as I can tell," he says after swallowing the bite, "This is a dimension somewhere off the Calin Plane, inhabited by these guys and their kind." He uses his meal to gesture at the ones that are still cooking. "Mm." He picks up the hot skillet apparently bare-handed (owie??) and sets it on the ground next to the fire. "And there's me. And now you! I don't know how long I've been trapped here. But you know, since you're here, we might have a way out!"
:glinp2:"Wow, I could use one of those!"
:nsshade:"Heh... So could I! That portal you came through just now? We need to modify one of those." He shoves the rest of the hand into his mouth and chews it up.
:glinp2:"Alright! Whatta we need?"
:nsshade:"We need an item from the Calin Plane - even something like your shirt should work. I can't use parts of myself, I've been here too long. Then we have to find a weak portal. I know where one is, but getting there might not be easy."
:glinp2:"I'm pretty good with a spear," I say, lifting my spear that I haven't put away still.
:nsshade:"You might need more than that..." he says. Hehe, he sounds exasperated.
:glinp2:"I got more tricks up my sleeve too." Saying that, I wonder what tricks he's got. Between the fog and the darkness and his being so dark, even his body shape is a MYSTERY!
:nsshade:"Good. We can move out after I finish eating. I think I know the ritual we'll need to use to fix up the portal." He picks up the second hand thing and puts the whole thing in his mouth! I can't see how big his mouth is, but obviously it's big enough for that!

Any more questions I should ask? Or things I should tell him?
No. 922406 ID: b1b4f3

Well, for one thing, you should ask him how he got here to begin with. Teleporter accident?
Maybe he was fighting the lich too.
