"Hey, Tamara, it looks like your bear and my abomination are going to duke it out. As much as I like Steve, could you make me a servant to replace him if he dies? Maybe something made of bones. Made of bones... OH MAN! Oh, I'll give you the words for this great idea I have if you can make it for me. I've already got a spell worked out and everything! And no hard feelings if Steve kills the bearman, okay? Circle of life and all that..."

If I'm not attacked, use my spear to make a shield of wind around Steve to cushion blows.

If I am attacked, cause the attacker to sprout thousands of bone spikes... inside of their chest cavity.


"As much as I like Bearman, and, with all the mana I spent, I'd like it if he lives. Though, if Steve wins, it's by his own luck, and I'll drop him a reward. Maybe. If I have the pool."

"Mister Bearman! Try and use your powers of bone, flesh, and blood control!"

"Larry, we are still friendly... right? I... This is... fun. I feel powerful, playing science like this. Please don't backstab me.

Best weapon against a mage? Hmm... I would say either an anti-magic field; which, by the way, is probably the most annoying, I would know; or perhaps poison. Most magi forget to check their food for foreign heavy metals.

The best weapon to use against a mage? A stronger mage.

...Of course, Null seems to be going for the "antimagic" idea.

-----

Anyways, I've finally finished preparations for my own Perplexicon-inspired game, featuring an infinite array of potential spells. As a shameless self-plug, please go look at it!

Blushing slightly as... similar... things had appeared in my mind, continue on with magicing.

Things!
Go up two floors, words

[derm dex: 3-1]
[javier dex:2]

[derm pot:4+2]
[javier dex:4]

A giant glob of mercury appears and splashes down on Javier. Javier, slightly annoyed, just runs away, up to the fourth floor.

[javier pot:1+1]
An aura of force flickers around him but fails to take hold.

"Knowing you, I'm guessing the answer is something like 'his own power' or some such."


Go loot that scroll he dropped when he came in!  Read the damn thing at him.

You run over to Null's bag and are about to undo the roll of paper when you realize you have hands of arcane explodeyness.

"Damn it, I'm like Midas, but with explosions!"

Get the fuck outta there post haste
also +1 str

i cant believe i finally beat wwolin to a kill :D

[Bearman dex:1]
[Larry dex:5+1]
[Steve dex:3+2]

[larry will:3+2]
A shielding bubble of wind surrounds steve as he runs all the way down to the second floor and over to the north stairs.

Bearman, distracted by Tamara's yelling, turns to look at her

"Power to control What? I don't have that."

"Bollocks."

Word.



I have just gotten a new beautiful idea. Mildly idiotic, mind you, but what great ideas are not? I am writing these down.
[pot:6+1]
You summon up an enormous fucking diamond. And I don't mean like when a rapper gets a "Huge rock" and its like an inch across. No, I mean a fucking rock the size of a small car.

"Shit man, Can I just leave now? I'm officially a multi-trillionare with this thing."


Stuff.
[pot:2+1]
You fire an anemic beam of magical energy thats about the thickness of a pencil at royce.
[royce dex:1]
[royce end:5]

Royce catches the beam straight in the sternum and the resulting bloody puff of magic scours away his skin and muscle until the bone is just barely visible. He starts bleeding a fair bit, as is to be expected.




Null, in the mean time, stands up from his throne and walks a few feet forward before stopping and whispering a few words.

[pot:3+3]

A machine that strongly resembles a clockwork AA Gun mounted on a rotating platform appears in front of him. It's barrel is coated in magical markings and a great deal of it looks magical in nature.

"You take your time, no rush." Null calls over to Thrakor, "But in the mean time I'm gonna amuse myself with some of the other people around here."

He takes a seat in the gunner's chair and the gun starts rotating around looking for a target.





Tamara Volk(8):Tsuchigumo550: Pool:5/8 (broken bone bow. Slightl glowing fungus kneepads.Left hand gone.)[third floor, south area.]

Joesph Smuck:Angle: pool 1/3: [fourth floor, west stairs]

Larry(4):wwolin: Pool 0/0: [Bone spear of the wind] [5th floor, one of the north pillars]

Royce:Onyxjew:Pool 1/2: (Spider man.)[fourth floor, north Stairs]

Derm:Derm: Pool:1/1 [Second floor, south stairs]

Thrakor(22):Toaster: Pool:3/5 (Whole body made of arcane energy, fast.)[first floor, Center]

Javier:Javier: Pool:1/3 [Fourth floor, south stairs]

(2)Steve:Unholy pariah: Pool:0/0 (Both hands Spiked, spinal whips)[Second floor, north stairs]

"Null, I love your work, but I kinda want to live for a while. Just try not to point that thing at me. Oh, and Tamara! CATCH!"

If Null points that cannon at me, use wind to point the barrel somewhere else.
Otherwise, blow the scroll to Tamara.

"I don't trust it but OK!"
Catch scroll.
"Sorry Mr. Bearman, i thought you had abilities you didn't! Carry on with Science, if you please!"
Oh, Mr. Now Officially Rich Enough To Buy A Small Galaxy, try bringing that along with us when the cosmos eats us, OK? Imagine what the people down there will DO!
Open my mind and see if words for "augment self with sarcastic genetic lifeform and disk operating system" come to mind.

Clearly running multiple missions at the same time is a terrible idea.  The epic battle to see which team can cock it up worse has escalated again.

And Larry kinda gets blueballed in all this; just left with a raging bone spear and no where to put it.
