*Steadily, over the course of a month, residents around Shiba Park had been complaining about a mysterious noise coming from the park in the night. The sound of grinding gears and the ticking of a clock. Everyone assumed delinquents or construction. Instead, hidden from the beaten path amongst the trees, was a steadily growing, mechanical building of gears and frost. As it stands now, it looks like a ruin made of metal, the structure only skeletal yet revealing an entrance to a cavern that seems to go deep beneath the park.* *On a specific night, you arrive, following the sound of gears. Perhaps you had been hired by a concerned resident or someone higher up who was involved in the running of the city. Perhaps you got curious. Perhaps you were just out for a late night stroll. Either way, you all end up in the same place. Before the entrance of the clockwork ruin.* OOC: Basic ground rules. This is a free to enter RP. No other threads to read before this one. Combat will be a thing that will happen so preferably bring someone who can fight. Other than that, have fun.
[Where anything weird was going on, he would go. He was always really into strange stories and weird people, no matter what. How much he got close to those, that would depend. Kazuo was at the very least curious. Carrying a long bag over his shoulder, he had his Rapier hidden, while also carrying Gad's Coin inside one of his pockets, and the revolver he once stole from the police so long ago, though, with nothing but 6 shots.] "Might as well be prepared, anything may be useful..." [He says while standing outside, trying to study the actual entrance, believing there may or may not be some kind of trap.]
Sleepy... so sleepy... all this noise is too much for them. After what feels like an eternity, they've finally woken up. This "human" body is poor as a disguise since its ears and tail stick out, but they don't care. They're just tired and confused. They crawl, then stumble towards the entrance. They put a hand on a piece of machinery. "Cold. I don't like it."
When thorne heard about the rummor about the park, he thought maybe this time, the last portal key will be at the park, considering about the mysterious noise that people said, this might be the clue for where the last portal key would be, and so thorne arrived there. "... The last portal key may be here, but I got to be careful when entering" as he is at the entrance, doesn't notice anyone in, thorne walked through the entrance, still embracing his tome with his both hands, trying his best not to make any sounds.
{Tea who was out making friends at the Shiba Park, heard the unusual sounds that clash with the atmosphere of the park. Since the clanging of gears and a park do not mix well together, Tea decides to get her Duel Disk ready and investigate it directly. Perhaps there will be some more people she can befriend? Either way, her deck isn’t set up, but she’s still prepared to greet Kazuo at the entrance, because that one time with the bug lady didn’t give her enough time to really connect.} “Kazuo, is that you? How goes it friend?” {The friendly girl says to the only reason that she’s not going in the entrance after spotting it immediately, as she usually does. After all, friends are more important than progress.}

*As Kazuo looks, he wouldn't see any sign of a trap. Just an open, unwelcoming hole in the ground filled only with cold steel steps descending further down into the earth. Neesh placing a hand on the metal skeleton of whatever the bulding may soon be also did nothing to provoke what may be beneath. Nothing was stopping them descending into the depths of the cavern.*
Apollo gazes at the entrance from afar, his own bag containing his laptop, 300000 yen some sticky notes and a sketchbook on his left shoulder. He was carrying Asami with him using his other arm, wrapping it around her chest. Before doing anything, he greets Kazuo by tapping him on his right shoulder. "Ah, Kazuo. Nice to see you here. Asami and I were just in the area. Didn't realized there'd be... all this, here." While the young god would attempt to survey the anamoly, he would be interrupted by the loud snoring of his sister along with her mumbling out loud in intervals. Asami: "Idiot... you'll only... yourself killed..." Apollo: "Ah, she must've fallen asleep without me realizing. Oh well, what's the worse that could happen?" Rather than considering his actions carefully, Apollo merely sets Asami on the grass nearby and takes out a sticky note. On it, he writes, "Gone to explore dungeon - Skype me if you need anything." He then sticks the note on her forehead and goes up to the entrance once more. Apollo: "So, you know anything about this, Kazuo?"
Neesh's ears flatten. This place doesn't feel natural at all and they hate it. Whatever made it disturbed their sleep and they need to find out why. Those two facts drive the creature masquerading as human into the entrance. Neesh runs inside as if leaping into a cold pool to get the shock over with. The metallic smell is overwhelming but they press on without even listening to the others.
"Alright, this is good enou-" [So a lot of people showed up, and at least two people he had already met. Thorne was one thing, the guy was actually useful back at the school, but Tea...] "We are not friend. Hello." [Furthermore, Thorne decided to just invite himself into the place. Kazuo would shake his head and pick up his pace.] "Nice to see you, I'm going in. You can stay here and wait for me though. I'm totally coming back." [Only to be stopped by Apollo. His...handling of Asami was worrying to say the least but the guy was a deity. Whatever they did was their problem, not his.] "Beats me, I'm going in to check it out. There's a good enough amount of people so, it should be fine." [Kazuo shrugs with a carefree smile as he finally enters the ruins.]
{Kazuo would disregard her attempts at true friendship, most likely because her theory was true. That time with the bug lady wasn't enough time to connect. It's confirmed now, as Kazuo had stated they were not friends yet. This adventure will be the best time to make sure that he's a friend. Nevertheless, Tea decides not to care at all when Kazuo says they aren't friends, as that's not possible.} "Hello to you too, it's nice to see you again!" {She gave Kazuo a friendly smile before looking over to see Apollo questionably put his sister off to the side. But what does she know, when the girl wakes up, she can be yet another friend to make. Might as well ask about Apollo since he's here.} "Oh hey, is he a friend of yours, Kazuo? That's pretty neat, you know. It's nice seeing friends make friends!" {With her deck ready as it can be, she fires up her Duel Disk and nods her head, following Kazuo and gesturing everyone else to go venture into the unknown. Who knows what friends she can encounter there.} "Come on friends, this place isn't going to explore itself!"

*Those who choose to enter the ruins would start heading down the metal steps, a low clang echoing with each steps they take. As they delve further down, the air would grow colder and frost would begin lining the walls. After three minutes of walking, they would reach a wide open cave like structure. The rock had clearly been carved with some sort of mining tool and roof was held up by gears jammed into the edges between roof and wall. The floor and parts of the walls were lined with the same strange metal that had been outside. The air was cold enough to see your breath.* *A mechanical ticking could be heard echoing around the cave system, likely the same one the residents had been annyed by in their reports. However, their were two ways to go. One, a carved out door way leading further into the cavern. A second a strange gash in the rock face, seemingly leading into a place either under constructon or, from a strange, large machine situated right next to it, a secret enterance meant to be hidden, depending on how you percieve the world. Which way to go is up to the individual.* Dungeon Theme: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b24Yjac5_mE
(edited by Sam)
Neesh breathes warm breath onto their hands, cursing their lack of fur right now. They sniff the air. It’s too cold and metallic to make sense of anything. Their eyes work fine, though, and they soon find the strange gash. They begin to wriggle their way inside. Once through, their ears perk up at the continuous overlapping footsteps. They stare out from the gap’s entrance to observe who has followed. These people are human. Some humans are good. Some are bad. These humans are... Neesh doesn’t know.
[Kazuo tries to remain calm, and is now very thankful of bringing his jacket with him. Had he gone out with nothing but a shirt would have been a grave mistake, especially since he doesn't even have gloves on him. Regardless, he would silently look between the two options... and decides that he would rather go deeper into the cavern. In his experience, the weird secret entrances are never worth it. And besides, someone was going there already, and he didn't want his hidden Rapier to be stuck all of a sudden.]
{Tea remains as she always does when walking through this terribly cold place, upbeat and friendly. Even if she can't be friends with the cold, she can at least make a truce. Figuratively. Or at least make sure the cold does nothing to stop her from making more friends. Nevertheless, she seemed unphased despite being underprepared for cold, wearing a pink blazer and a blue skirt was the worst choice. As she shuffled through her cards, she noticed Kazuo going deeper into the cavern. Without even noticing there was another option, the girl smiles and nods approvingly before following her friend. Because they are friends.}
Apollo follows the group, not doing anything interesting in particular
OOC: Sorry to bother, but is there space for one more? At least it doesn't look to be too far along.

OOC: Yeah, feel free to join. We've just started so you haven't missed anything.
OOC: Very well then enter the stage... Sen lets out a sigh, following well after the main group. She'd heard complaints about the noise, and now that she could safely investigate to do something about it... Of course she had to check it out. Otherwise she'd be irresponsible. Since an outside approach seemed unlikely, the girl would silently step down into the cavern, her cape flowing off to her right side, leaving her crest fully revealed. Once she eventually comes across the crossroads, the girl heads down the seemingly hidden path.. True, the direct route might get her there faster, but she also needs to make sure the culprit can't easily escape.

*The main route would lead Kazuo, Tea and Sunna through a small hallway. The walls, floor and ceiling were covered in frosty metal, cold to the touch, as the air remained as cold as before. There didn't seem to be any security. Other than your own, there were no other voices or footsteps and there were no obvious cameras on the walls. It's possible that either they didn't work in the cld temperatures or you had entered the facility before they could be installed. Either way, the ticking noise continued to grow louder as you continue. Before you is a large main chamber with a half closed door that seemed like it was supposed to be automatic but was probably either deactivated or broken. To the right is another, smaller room to explore but it seemed far less interesting in comparison.* *The side path Sen and Neesh went through was uncomfortably narrow. However, interestingly enough, the further away from the main room you went, the warmer it got and the fainter the ticking noise got. The frost vanished with the metal of the ruin. Eventually, thankfully, the room gives way to an open cavern. Around the cavern was a number of strange, almost alien looking mining tools and devices lined the room with a portable computer like device giving light to the otherwise dank and darkened cavern. The ticking that drew you too the cavern was almost unhearable. However, an even stranger sound could be heard. The sound of rushing water beneath your feet echoing from somewhere. Despite that, there was no other seeable exit from the room.*
"looks like a water station. Its possible they're using it to power this place." Sen doesn't really mind the close space, once the two come out, she decides to give Neesh her typical calm analysis, keeping careful watch over her companion to see how they react. Regardless, there's no reason not to check out the lit terminal. Its possible they'd be able to turn off the gear system from here, which would be convenient to say the least.
[Kazuo would quietly cross his arms and look towards the half closed door. Considering the weird noises and the state of the place, at the very least it gave off the impression someone or something...? Needed all this here. Was it recently constructed? Was it always here? He wasn't exactly sure anymore, he could never be until he got some kind of clue.] "You guys go check over there. I'll take this other room just in case. If anything happens, yell in terror." [There could be some extra piece of information or even some kind of key they could use later on. Better yet, there could be some artifact he could take for himself. With this in mind, Kazuo would go towards the smaller room to the right, cautiously, trying not to make too much noise, just in case.]
With thorne entering this place, he is amazed that he felt cold even though it doesn't snow, this made thorne impressed, and then he just noticed kazuo while he was entering, thorne is kind of surprised but not anymore since they often see each other, "kazuo? So you are here after the rummor about this place too?" he asked kazuo with his surprised face before they got into the hallway after the door. "so we're stuck" after the people got stuck at the hallway, thorne felt the cold air here becoming more cold, yet he sees it as if it is a warm air even though he knows that it feels cold. "alright" thorne nods quietly to kazuo about his suggestion. The noise started to become more loud, that made thorne question if they are 'close' to the place where the noise is, thorne had to go right where the smaller rooms are, there might be any interesting clue for this place, he thought about it. Ooc: sorry if I replied late bc it was like 4 am and went to sleep after I posted this, I am still counted on this, right?

OOC: You're good, Thorne. Just everyone else was active so I decided to go on without you. Sorry. Hope you don't mind.
Neesh is fine with this human tagging along. Some help is nice. Once Neesh pops out of the exit, they visibly relax. It’s less unnatural here. Neesh zig-zags around the room for a bit in an attempt to find the water’s source. They press their ear against the floor, sniff the strange devices... they eventually notice the computer and run over to it. They lift it up to examine it. If there’s nothing interesting they’ll just shove it into Sen’s hands.
Jessica, a seemingly highschool age white, orange, and purple haired, white skined fox girl, with the same color pallet for her clothes, stops at the hole. "atleast I broughtt my sword and gun with me." she says as she heads down the stairs and through the more obvious path. OOC: I will be talking to myself quite abit, like Thomas Sanders
"hello? Anyone down here? Hello?" she yells through all the other tunnels.
Apollo keeps track of Kazuo, nodding as he issues his commands. "Alright, i'll..." He is abruptly cut off by the echoing of Jessica's voice causing him to tense up. "Shit, there's a commoner here! I have no choice but to finish this quickly..." Without a moment of hesitation, Apollo sprints towards the half-open door fast enough that he thought no one could keep up with. His aim had been to put enough distance between himself and the other explorers, so if there was no immediate adversary he would forsake attempts at investigation and merely move towards the first path forward he could find.
{Tea nods her head, smiling at Kazuo, as they are friends.} "Whatever you say, Kazuo!" {Not even noticing Jessica's presence, the girl only turns her head to see Apollo suddenly run in the direction they were told to. It wouldn't be weird if he wasn't doing so in an extremely hasty fashion.} "Hey wait, where are you going Kazuo's friend? I want to be friends too!" {Tea Gardner sprinted ahead, not allowing herself to get wrapped up in whatever he was running away from, instead running behind him and towards him in hopes she could talk more and become friends with him. After all, making friends is more important than remembering she can't run as fast as a deity. Which she can't, but friendship always powers through.} {At the same time, her eye color changes slightly. From blue to brown. It wasn't noticeable, but it was a change nonetheless. On the other path, a presence colored blue would follow Kazuo down the path he told the others not to follow him down.}

*On the computer screen, a number of stranges characters are strung together. Like code to activate devices and three triggers. Due to the language, it's not certain what they do, but it's likely at least one of them activates the minng devices though the other two are a complete mystery. Above one trigger are three squiggly lines. Above another is the picture of what seems to be a crane. The third what seems to be a wing of some kind. Activating the triggers is as simple as using the arrow and enter keys. How adventurous are you feeling?" *Kazuo, Mal and Throne would enter the side room. Like the rest of the facility, it's cold and metalic however the backmost wall seems to be made of glass with gears turning behind it. These gears seem part of a much larger machine stretching beyond what is visible by the glass panel. Other than that, there's a few shelves with what looks to be tablets and a half dismantled robotic figure in the corner. It seems to be a workshop of somesorts.* *Apollo and Jess enter the main room. It's a large room comprised of multiple floors, a number of them above you and even more below. An elevator like device sits in the corner of the room while stairs snake around the centre. The air is even colder than before and the ticking echoes from below. The room itself is covered with frost and one of the wall is covered with deactivated screens. A few robotic figures lie deactivated around the rooms, some in pieces and some complete. What seems to be a sort of power source stetches up one side of the room but it like the rest of the machines in the complex, is off. Though, a floor above you, a number of buttons and switches can be seen on the device.*
Neesh stares at the screen for a bit, then hands the device over to Sen and sits down. “We can’t find the water. This screen is weird too. Human things are confusing.” They cross their arms like a frustrated child. This does little in terms of progress, though, so they put aside their irritation to put brainpower into the human device. They eventually come up with something the human might be able to do. “Can you stop all the things? We don’t like all the machines.”
(edited by Neesh)
"Oh.. Hello there." having entered the room a short while ago, Sen finally notices Neesh. She hadn't really expected to find anyone else here, but they clearly weren't hostile. With access to the computer, Sen sits down cross-legged and begins to experiment "It does look like some kind of control panel. I'll see what I can do." the squiggly lines kind of look like water, and considering the rushing sound... She'd rather not get flooded, so Sen decides to try the wing trigger instead.
"Seriously, what is up with this place...? I never imagined something like this could be in Tokyo, even if there was never any reason for it not to be." [Kazuo would casually walk towards the tablets and robotic figure, just to get a better idea of what their deal was. He would try to pick each one or generally examine them, whatever it took. After, he would keep staring out towards the gears turning.] "I have a crazy idea. What if this whole facility is actually a singular machine being? Like in those Tokusatsu shows with the giant robots, piloted by a few." [Kazuo would keep his arms crossed. If he found anything worth investigating further, he would stay. However, if he had seen all there was to see, then he would immediately go towards the next room.] "There was this one old show. It had their base of operation turn into a massive robot that could fight."

OOC: Ah, alright, that's cool.
"This isn't my speciality, but I suppose now's the time to improvise." The hasty youth would approach one of the deactivated robot figures, placing their hand on it's forehead and injecting it with bolts of "dark" matter. In the back of his mind, this would be an attempt to assume control of its neural functions through wrangling the atoms composing them. In reality, he had no idea what he was doing and would most likely only moderately damage the machine. Whatever reaction it may have would be up to fate, as Apollo had little expectations either way.
Thorne did fell cold, yet he can't feel any cold, but he is curious if everyone else is dying of that type of cold, it made him feel a little bit worried around the others After thorne saw the robots, he is actually amazed that a whole facility has robots in it. "Tesla would definitely be amazed if he sees those kinds of machines" he was instrested of how the robots looked like "massive robots that can fight?" thorne was wondering about what kazuo said "wait you meant some sort of arena where robots fight each other? Does that exist in this world?"
"Hmm, I almost wish I went with my other deck. But risking the destruction of someone else's property just to warm yourself up is very unfriendly." {Tea would look around, thinking to herself to see what she should do. At least until she saw Apollo doing whatever he was doing. It must've been helping that robot mechanism, as he was making contact with the thing. Tea wants to see what's up, so she walked over to where he is.} "Hey Kazuo's friend, what are you doing?" {The brown-eyed girl asked nonchalantly, not caring at all about whatever possible weights the situation would hold so long as she gets to make another friend in Kazuo's friend.} {Meanwhile with Kazuo, the blue presence followed him. In his ears, he heard the sound of a teenage girl's laughter. Though it was supposedly indirect laughter, he still felt like he was being mocked.}

*Sen pressing the Bird button at first causes the room to shake. However, instead of anything bad, instead a partition in the wall opened. Behind it was a set of stone stairs leading down towards where the rushing water seemed to be. There was still two other buttons to press if you wanted too or you could continue forwards throught the new passage. Or perhaps, if you really want to, back through the gash in the wall.* *Apollo's attempt to revive the robot would seem to work at first. It would slowly rise up and take a few steps forwards, heading for the stairs leading to a higher floor and the power console above. Then, suddenly, it's arm blows off and it collapses in a broken heap on the ground, smoke rising from it's now missing limb. Seems this robot is of no use anymore.* *As Kaz and Thorne speculate on what the purpose of the building is, there is a sudden, faint shaking that can be felt in the room. Some of the gears in the back wall spin rapidly for a few seconds before grinding to a hault. The rest of the gears keep turning, unconcerned by the sudden motion. Soon, the stopped gears start turning again, but in reverse of what they had been a few seconds ago. Despite the sudden change, however, nothing else in the room would react. The robots remain still.*
Neesh leaps to their feet when the ground rumbles, but fear turns to excitement when the passage is revealed. “Good job, human!” They pat Sen on the head then bolt down the stairs. Maybe whoever built this place is there! Or, if the human was right, there’s something getting power! Neesh grins. If the latter’s true, they can just break it and stop this thing from running.
"Not that I know of, Thorne. But this world being as it is, chances are-" [The sudden shaking would interrupt him, as well as the following change in the gears. Kazuo would wait silently for anything to happen.] "Either that was Apollo or that... other thing that went through the gash before. Just one way to find out." [Kazuo felt like he was being followed, but didn't have enough time to really give it too much thought. He would leave the room quickly and then head in the way Apollo and Tea went to previously. There without delay, he would take notice of the sheer size of the place.] "Did you guys find anything or did anything? There was some kind of rumbling just a moment ago..." [He would look around the place until he finds the stairs and decides to go check the upper floor and figure out what the deal is with the buttons and switches before going to the source of the ticking. For all he knew, it wasn't going to be pretty.] "We didn't find out much. That room seemed to be some kind of workshop with this incomplete robot and a lot of gears past this window. Remember that rumbling I mentioned? They changed right after, so someone must have done something." [If only he could figure out what this place's deal was. He was out of his element.]
"Alright. Looks good." Sen closes her eyes and lets out a sigh of relief. It looks like she made the right choice. Assuming there really was a choice. The girl is broken out of her musings when she feels a light patting on her head, only for her companion to run downstairs. "H.. Hey. That's not safe! You should at least slow down!" Sen shouts as she runs down the stairs after Neesh, doing her best not to trip on her way down the railless stairs.
{Tea was excited to see the robot would come to life, her eyes were almost starry when it started to move somewhere. Maybe that meant it could talk? Maybe it could make friends? Well, we'll never know, because it immediately died. Bummer.} "Aw man, I wanted to be friends with it! Oh well." {Tea would turn to Kazuo, excitedly waving to him. To her, it was just meeting another friend. But to Kazuo, something in her eyes flickered before they switched back to blue. Whatever presence that was following him has left for now.} "Oh hey, Kazuo! No, I don't think that was us. Unless the revival was so proficient it died twice so that it's soul powered something in this building...actually, I think that might be it!"
While thorne and kazuo were talking, the ramble sound made a sound over this place. "woah-" he got surprised "looks like it'll keep on happening I guess?" thorne was thinking too much and stayed in this room after kazuo left. "guess I'll keep looking around for a long time, a key portal could be here" Concered about the sound, he thought it was a doing of a box with a flying key around, as he looked more of this area, he couldn't find any clue with anything, he sighed. "... Then it is not around?" thorne felt disapointed that he wouldn't find it around here, but instead he looked at the robots with his worried look.
Apollo turns back to Tea, his disintrest in Tea's antics being apparent. "Name's Apollo, i'd rather you don't speak to me at all, but I wouldn't mind if you do so in reverence. This goes for no one else, only you." He scratches the side of his nose, taking a look around before noticing Kazuo go to the upper floor, whom he would follow. "I tried messing around with one of the robots, but it was a shot in the dark. A miracle one of the things moved at all. Now, actually controlling one completely might require actual proficiency in that department. I wonder what a miracle would be for someone with those abilities?"

*As Neesh and Sen run down the stairs, they may be going to fast to stop as they reach the bottom and almost immediatly are met with a rushing river. The river rushes the direction of where you arrived in the complex, just a floor down, so if you did fall in you'd be swept down that direction. If not, you would find a narrow path following the river with no guard rail. The sound of water echoes around you, making it hard to hear anything else, including the sound of your partner.* *Kazuo would climb to the second floor of the room. The floor of the second floor is made of a metal Mesh, allowing both those on the first floor and those on the second to still see and talk to eachother. The second floor seems pretty barebones. Two of the robotic bodies lie at the far end and there is a few consoles around. The largest of which connects to the large generator and is covered in buttons and switches.* *For everyone else on the bottom floor, the situation remains the same. The cold air, the mechanical ticking echoing from below and the devices all still deactivated are free to investigate.*
Neesh attempts to skid to a stop, but the damp floor causes them to skid too far and tumble off the edge. They don't know what to do and they can't swim like a human can- But they can swim like beasts. As they fall, their body becomes transparent, tumbling and morphing. A canine beast with tan fur pushes off something and uses her forepaws to catch the edge of the platform, struggling to climb back on. The other beast that had formed, a beast with ginger fur, is pushed back by his counterpart and the water and is swept downstream. The humanoid known as Neesh is nowhere to be seen.
"well, there may be no clues here, so no moping right now" thorne hits both of his cheeks to hit some sense around him as he closes his eyes, inhaling and exhaling, then he opened his eyes. for now, he has to look to another place, while he looks more around, all he had to do is to look around if anything there was anything intresting but he didn't find anything that could be useful as a clue for this place or any clue that the key portal exists around here. on his way to follow the others, he found apollo and tea on his way, he doesn't know about these two actually, but thorne knows for sure that he met this guy before (apollo) but he won't think further about this for now. "have you found anything intresting around here?" thorne asked to the two.
"I KNEW it", the girl thinks to herself. There was always going to be something at the end, she'd just hoped that Neesh could have listened. "Careful!" Sen shouts, knowing its already too late to help. As she shouts, the girl reaches an arm to hold onto the creature that's stuck on the edge of the platform, taking hold of them, only to realize she was too late to slow herself and starting to fall off. "Socrates!" As if it were planned, Sen summons her guardian spirit, a knight-like figure in glistening red armor that stabs its sword into the rock near the edge and grabs onto Sen, tossing both her and the dog-like beast back to safety. With them both safe Sen takes a second to look more closely at the thing she had saved, as well as catch her breath after that brief but harrowing encounter. "Should have listened." The girl adds, though its unlikely that the creature could hear her over the sound of the water.
[Considering the options, Kazuo crosses his arms and figures there is but one thing to do.] "That generator thing, and those buttons... It may be better if I somehow returned power to the facility, if this will allow it." [But those machines...] "It should be fine; I can probably fight them with the Sleeping Glove." [He decision made, he would approach the largest console and look closely, in case there is anything he could use. If for whatever reason there was a button or switch that obviously screamed "Power", he would go for it right away.] "I'm seeing if I can turn on the power here! Brace yourselves in case anything happens!"
Apollo doesn't show any signs of concern at Kazuo's warning. He instead takes a look downstairs, giving a friendly wave goodbye while distracted. "I'm sure you're braced enough for the both of us. I'm gonna check the lowers levels to see if anything changes there." He then goes to the floor below the main one, looking up all the while.
"Reverence...hmmm...reverence..." {The girl followed behind Kazuo and Apollo, but got stumped as soon as she heard an unfamiliar word. It was so unfamiliar to her, that she had to take her phone out and search it up in order to know what it meant. Tea gasps when she reads the definition, clearly ignoring what he said about not talking to him.} "Oh hey, that word! That's a good word to describe how I treat friendship, thanks for telling me about it Apollo!" {She waves back at him despite him not asking for one, and follows Kazuo further, stopping at the mechanisms or wherever he's at. This place is so exciting it's hard to know what's happening, but any place is exciting with friends. Like Kazuo.} "Whatever you say Kazuo!" {Tea said to her friend, firing up her Duel Disk and getting 5 cards in her hand, her blue eyes glimmered with excitement. She wasn't actually bracing herself for anything, just getting ready for a fun duel. Especially with her friend by her side. Because they're friends.}

* Thanks to Sen, Neesh is saved froma watery ride. The rest of the narrow path that goes along the river seems slippery and the cave is incredibly dark, making it difficult to see the path. It's dangerous but it's possible that the river leads to somewhere important. After all, why carve a path under your strange ruin machine base if it wasn't going anywhere, right?* * As Kazuo looked over the generator, he'd see there was a few switches, a few smaller buttons and a larger, rounder button. Some of the switches had tally marks over them. One reading one, two and three specifically. One of the buttons had a sun symbol. Another had the image of a wing on it. The larger button had a strange symbol like nothing you've ever seen before.* * Apollo would take the stairs and head below. The stairs down where a lot longer than the stairs up. The ticking got louder. Eventually, they would reach the floor below. Like the floors above, the lower floor would be covered in metal. This one seemed much more complete however. Despite the lack of lights, gears could be heard spinning in the darkness. Stepping on the floor would result in a slight crunch being heard under your feet, like you were walking on snow or frost. The air is colder than ever. There is no more stairs going down. Whatever is making it, the ticking is on this floor.*
The dog-creature whines and bows her head. Even with the water’s roar she understands Sen is scolding her. Looking at the creature more closely, Sen would notice three green gems on its chest, as well as that its body wasn’t fully canine. It was built just bipedal enough to walk awkwardly on two legs if it wanted to. Its body shimmers again and reverts back to Neesh’s more human form. They stand up shakily. They’re breathing heavier and their skin is paler. “Other half of us is still alive... Can’t breathe...” They stare at the path along the river. They’ll find that other half of them if they go there, right? Neesh starts jogging down it, looking over their shoulder to see if Sen is following.
The strange gems on the creature catch Sen's eye, but there's not much she can actually do about it. And they probably can't hear her anyways, at least, she couldn't hear them. There wasn't any point staying here now that they had rested, so Sen grabs hold of Neesh's shoulder before they can run off. They're obviously in terrible shape and shouldn't lead the way anywhere dangerous. After giving them a second to calm down, Sen would like to take the lead, better for the fully-combat-capable one to lead the charge than one who... Well lets just say Sen's seen dead people who look livelier than Neesh right now.
"This should be easy. Praying so I don't activate the Self-destruct sequence." [Clearly, the "Sun" button came first, assuming it meant the power was back. Then, he would press the "Wing" button. He would leave the "Unknown" button alone for the time being, he wanted to see what would happen first, as well as the other switches. He would turn around to see Tea... using... cards.] "Tea, can you not? We should be fine." [Kazuo would close his eyes, almost feeling embarrassed. However...] "...Sana, can't you just talk to me already? I already know you're around."
Neesh freezes up at the sudden touch on their shoulder. The human’s stopping them? ...Oh. This human looks worried. No wonder. Neesh must look at terrible as their other half feels. Neesh gives Sen a small nod and follows her, fighting against the urge to run ahead. They just need to keep calm and focus on making sure their other half doesn’t drown. They’d feel better if that half could see anything but it’s all a blur on his end.
The cold and the dark would not affect Apollo as greatly as they would a human, though he would still feel a tinge uneasy by the atmosphere. Not content with relying on his eyes, Apollo would create a spear, proding at the ground in front of him as he moves forward slowly.
"Wait, the duel hasn't started yet?...Does that mean I can get a reroll of my hand? Oh and Kazuo, who's Sana? Is that ANOTHER friend of yours? I'd love to meet her and become friends with her!" {Tea laughed to herself, still holding her cards in her hand, as that was customary for a duelist playing the children's card game. Sadly, there was nothing to be dueling with, so instead of putting her cards back, she just decided to talk to Kazuo, her friend.} "Hey. Kazuo. Listen to me, friend: Can I say something, friend? Come on, stop ruining everything, friend." {Something glistened in Tea's blue eyes. Her smile grew wider as her voice slowly started to become less friendly.} "Dumbass, worthless friend. Your opinion wasn't needed, friend. She didn't even need to know that yet, FRIEND!" {Tea sighed as a second voice now echoed behind hers. Kazuo would find this second voice familiar, or at least know that it's a sign that he guessed right. Sana was indeed there, but she wasn't coming out anytime soon unlike last time.} "Ugh, you really need to stop being a killjoy. I'm just practicing!"
After he climbed to the lower floor, he felt more cold, or most likely, more warm, as he notices that there are too much snow-like sound that he felt on his feet and much darker in here. "w-woah, there's snow in this place" thorne was nervously excited, a snow in a time like this and place like this must be really impressive for those humans of this world develop something like this "but it is dark..." So thorne opened his tome and made some icy butterflies to make some lights so he could see around "this will come in handy." "um... Excuse me... Sir?" thorne called to apollo as some of his icy butterflies with those lights flew near him, it doesn't do any threat, it would just help light this place "um... Uh... I just made some butterflies with the lights so we could look around more clearly..." thonre lowers his voice nervously "I may be in the way, but this is all I can do to help"

*Kazuo presses the sun button and... Nothing seems to happen.* *As Sen and Neesh begin heading down the riverside corridor, the lights above suddenly flash on, lighting up the entire corridor. You know have a free look at all of the loose wires following the river as well as a large grate at the rivers end. The grate would serve to let the water in but stop everything large that tried to go through it. As such, the other half of Neesh was likely stuck there. Unfortunatly, the high speed rushing water crushing them against the grate probably hurt at best and was drowning them at worse. At the end of the path is a lone metal door though it is unknown where it leads due to lack of windows.* *Apollo prods the ground, leading to a soft crunch followed by a metalic clang. Before he could see what it was, the lights above spring to life, giving him a better view of the area he had ended up. Like above, the room was lined with a bunch of deactivated machines and robot parts. Unlike above, this room was covered in frost. Despite this, the gears that could be seen through glass panels covering the walls kept steadily turning. There were two doors to this room. Above one was an image of squiggles. Another has the image of multiple gears above it. Where the ticking is coming from is entirely unknown. Suddenly, theirs a shake from above, causing the lights in the eyes of the robots to glow as they rise from the ground. However, they ignore Apollo entirely, begining to go to work on the frost covered machines as if nothing strange was happening. Despite this however, the machines remain off.* *The next button Kazuo presses, the wing, does do something immediatly noticable. The room shakes slightly. The room immediatly spring to life. The robots that had been lying dormant suddenly sprung to life, pulling themselves off the ground. However, instead of adressing the intruders, they immediatly start focusing on the consoles around the room. Down the hall, the faint sound of buzzing can be heard as the workshops also spring to life. However, the consoles remain off, the robots simply watching the blank screens as if waiting for something to happen. Perhaps another button would get them working. But do you actually want that to happen?*
[Kazuo holds the bridge of his nose with his index and thumb, already somewhat annoyed by Sana's presence, so he considers what he could possibly do. However, he had other things to worry about at the time.] "Whatever. The "Sun" button didn't seem to do anything, but I'm not touching it again. The other one gave life to these, so that only leaves the numbered switches... and the weird one." [Kazuo would be a bit startled by the movements of the robots now moving to their... assigned tasks? It didn't seem like they even knew they were there. He would hold his right forearm with his left hand, extending the former.] "An Eternal soul. Purgatorio: Sleeping Glove." [His right wrist would be covered by a heavy manacle with a long blade growing out of it, reversed, reaching up to his shoulder. The back of his hand is covered by a strange metal while the palm instead becomes a bizarre leather. Finally, the fingers would become metallic claws, sharp and sturdy, but somehow capable of moving like they weren't.] "Juuuust in case anything happens. I'm all curious now." [He would look back at the console and, without a single tinge of hesitation, would flip the switches with the tally marks, and then finish with the strange button with the weird symbol using his left. After this, he would slowly put down the bag he brought with himself, leaving it open, now the Rapier being clear to see inside.]
{"Tea's" eyes widen a bit, her voice taking a bit of a surprised tone as Kazuo decides to focus on the objective at hand. Whatever that is. Knowing him, he will screw something up so it's nice to be there when that happens.} "At least you don't have to ask why you're a guinea pig. That's refreshing. I thought you'd be a dumbass and try to ask me why I'm here again, which is literally none of your business." {Because that's the best insult to use right now. It doesn't really matter about the context, since now as he starts to flip all the switches and push the buttons, she realizes that he has no idea what he's doing. "Tea" gets disappointed again at Kazuo.} "Nevermind. You've proven me wrong. It turns out you're a dumbass because you want to try and act smart by pressing buttons randomly. Good luck with that random nuke you've set off, idiot." {Of course, that hopefully shouldn't be what immediately happens. But if it does, at least he can burn. In a silent fit of rage, "Tea" lets out an exhausted sigh as she puts a random card face down from her hand onto the field.}
"I love the rush of combat in the evening." she says as she smirks, pulling out a "gun" different from the one against her side, and points it at her head, as she does that she yells "Arsene!" while pulling the trigeger, making a red gentlemanly demon, appear behind her.
"it's always good to be prepared." she says as she draws her sword.
The ginger beast on the grate, now that Neesh can see it, attempts to move along the grate by pulling itself along it, using the grate itself like an odd ladder. Neesh reaches out a trembling hand. Slowly and painfully, the beast approaches and its fur is close enough to touch. Upon contact, its body becomes clear and then flows back into Neesh. Neesh falls to their knees, panting. “We... we’re fine.” They shake their head and stand back up. They sniff the door and, deeming it safe, attempt to open it.
"well that's nice." Sen says more to herself than anyone else. Now that they have light its much safer to navigate the passageway, and easier for Sen to keep focused on the road ahead. Soon the girl catches sight of another strange creature.. Like the dog-thing she had saved earlier. This one struggling against the grate. Seeing Neesh's efforts to save the creature, Sen lets out a sigh before contributing herself. "Socrates." as before, Sen's Guardian in red armor materializes a few feet away from Sen, over the River. As her guardian is largely non-corporeal, it doesn't have to pay attention to the river, letting it safely reach the strange creature and drag it back to shore before vanishing. after Giving Neesh the chance to recover, Sen takes the lead once more in trying to open the metal door
Ooc: @TakamakiJessica1 why do this of all things? Apollo surveys the room, noticing the two doors. He then turns to Thorne, assuming an authoratative stance and tone. "Thorne, report to Kazuo the effects observed here. I'd suggest you and one of the others investigate one of these rooms, but that may not be necessary. Your call." He then brushes some dirt off his left should, taking a breather before going towards the door with gears and proceeding into the following room.
As the machine's eyes begins to open, thorne took a small startle on his eyes, as the robots are making an ice cubes, first impression to Thorne is that he was amazed of how would they make an ice magic, but he is concerned about apollo after what he suggests, but he wonders about how does he know his name. "how do you know my name---? no... " he shakes his head when he was surprised about how he knows his name "alright, copy that" as Thorne picked up two cards, the first one is the blue ur card that has a picture of thorne sitting on an icy garden, he threw it away as it flashes away to make light blue aura around 4 of his butterflies, his green UR card about a girl going through a bedroom door in a garden picture and thew it away while thinking to of a place where kazuo could be, as it flashes away, thorne flashes away along with it, that left only one of these 4 butterflies flying around apollo following him. Between the Conversation between Kazuo and Tea, thorne flashes in the midist of them, and then the green card flashes in as it falls into Thorne's hands, as he picked it up, the green card becomes darker as it says '30 mins left', thorne picked it away, by putting it in his red scarf, looking around as he sees kazuo and tea, around a room he doesn't know... "oh, everyone, there's something I have to report!" thorne explained to kazuo and tea about what happened at the lower floor just now, but he described apollo as that man "that's everything I have to say, and also that man also said that we may investigate one of these room, but it couldn't be necessary..." just as he said it, thorne thought of what did apollo meant for that.

*Kazuo flips the switches. The sound of typing echoes down from above as the machines spring to life and the robots get back to work. Whatever they're work is is a mystery but perhaps it has something to do with the mysterious ticking noise echoing from below. The strange button meanwhile would do nothing of note, at least at first. However, the ticking seems to have suddenly stopped.* *Their ally rescued, Sen and Neesh pass through the side door and are already blasted by a sudden cold air. The ticking can't be heard. The room you enter is a short corridor before what seems to be entering a sort of control room. Dotted around the place are several robots working away at moniters, seemingly keeping something working. One wall shows an array of gears that have stopped moving while another is completely made of glass and shows where the river goes. Before you is a large chamber. From multiple sides, flows of water fall into a large basin and seem to become flash frozen and ground up by a system of gears before falling below and being whisked away in multple directions by conveyor belts, some rising in buckets to the floors above. It's a stange device but it almost explains why everything is so cold inside the facility proper.* *As Apollo heads towards the Gear area, the ticking seems to stop though it doesn't stop the cold. Heading through the area, you hear the whirring of machines. Of too the side are darkened windows. Some have flashes coming from them. Others explosions. At the far end of this corridor is a set of large, mechanical doors with a key pad next to it. Behind the doors sounds like something struggling, a mechanical roar being faintly heard. Above the door is the image of a wing.*
Neesh growls and glares at the robots. So these metal creatures are part of the system that woke them up. All Neesh has to do is kill them and it'll stop, right? Neesh's body ripples, becomes clear, and splits into two again. The ginger beast doesn't move yet, still exhausted from the earlier ordeal, but the tan beast roars and her crystals glow. Conjuring a spear of ice, Bufudyne, she launches the spell at the nearest robot.
"Everything's working now..." [Without much else to do in this area, Kazuo would turn towards Tea/Sana... Teana? T-Anna? It doesn't matter. Kazuo would shrug and casually smile.] "Of course I don't know what I'm doing, I always improvise and adapt to new situations. If you're so worried, you can leave, Princess. I don’t want to leave you for dead again." [As he begins to move towards the stairs, Thorne makes his own appearance. He was at first surprised and even released a few electric sparks from his demonic armor hand but calmed down quickly. He takes a moment before saying anything.] "Alright, so the buttons are doing way more than what we saw right here. Might as well keep going! Let's go meet with Apollo before he does anything stupid." [Without much doubt, he would turn around and make his way towards the button, and would not stop unless something happened. He was worried something would, given he played around a machine he doesn't know. If he reaches the bottom without issue, he would go through the "squiggles" door.]
"It really isn't improvising and adapting as much as it is walking to your death and barely surviving just so you can go ahead and do it again for the next situation. But whatever floats your sinking boat. And as always, you expect me to leave again. No, dumbass. The girl's not leaving, so I'm not either, that's common sense." {As Kazuo gets surprised by the sight of Thorne, Tea? would just snicker to herself as he was on his way to handing some random person an L for no reason other than the fact that he got surprised by them.} "You better be careful not to blow your load in front of your friends dude, they're carrying you." {Tea? would proceed to follow the gang, noticing that Kazuo's off mumbling his half-baked plans during the staircase expedition. So Sana fills more of the void in hopes the trip doesn't get dull as quick as possible.} "Wow, you really talk to yourself. Does he even know what you're saying? Well, I guess I know what I'm supposed to say instead. Hey, wanna be friends? I love making friends? Friends are the best! Will that god man ever accept my friend request? Friendship's very important!"
Apollo crosses his arms, tapping his right foot impatiently. "I'm about to do something stupid lmao. " With a wave of his hand, hard earth would swirl into a giant drill, dark energy wrapping around it. The drill would dig into the middle of the doors at terminal velocity. "This Gaia Crusher should do the trick."
"Hey, wait! I don't think they noticed us yet." Sen calls out to the beasts, not that it actually mattered at this point. Seeing as they had already initiated their attack. Sen hadn't really wanted to fight, but now she has her sword up, ready for one. While keeping an eye out for any attacks aimed her way, Sen also tries to look towards the gears to see what's stopping them up.

*As Kazuo and Teanna enter the room at the end of the water door, they find Sen and the two beasts that were Neesh and are able to witness Neesh attacking a robot with Bufudyne. The spell strikes the robot in the arm. It and the other robots don't flinch and keep working. However, an alarm sounds and a robotic voice sounds.* *Meanwhile, Apollo's attempts at drilling the door do nothing at first. Then, as an alarm sounds and a robotic voice begins announcing something, an electrical field covers the door, likely shocking Apollo.* ATTENTION! INTRUDERS DETECTED IN TWO LOCATIONS! LOCATION 1: WEAPON TESTING AND PRISON ENTRANCE. ERROR: NO UNITS TO DEFEND WEAPON TESTING AND PRISON ENTRANCE. DEPLOYING GRAVITON DRONES. LOCATION 2: CENTRAL DYNAMO. SWITCHING UNITS IN CENTRAL DYNAMO FROM WORK MODE TO DEFENCE MODE! ALL INTRUDERS PLEASE STAND BY FOR ERADICATION AND CLEAN UP! WE APPRECIATE YOUR UNDERSTANDING AND CO-OPERATION! *It would seem turning on all the switches and buttons on the power console did more than switch a few lights and robots on. Immediatly, the robots light eyes light up and turn around, facing the intruders. The hands start sparking.* *With Apollo, two holes in the ceiling, dropping two black, metal orbs from the sky which soon spilt open. It's center opens revealing a canon like gun with two tendrils splitting off to both sides, revealing a saw blade and a drll.*
--Battle Begin--
OOC: Time for actual combat. For my convenience, please add an action with move name, element of the move (Fire, Physical, Almighty, etc) and the severity of the move (Light, Medium, Heavy, etc) Also add number of times hit and any added effect the move may have. It helps me keep track of how the fights going. I think I can trust you guys to keep track of your own HP values this time right? K. Thanks. Bye.
The tan beast snarls and backs away from the sparking robots. She doesn’t like that electricity. For the narrator’s convenience, let’s call her by her proper name, Eve. She inhales deeply then lets out a breath of pure fog at the robots, obscuring their vision. The ginger beast, Adam, has a breath trick of his own. Once Eve finishes her attack, he leaps in front of her, rears up on his hind legs, and breathes a fireball at the rightmost robot. Both of these halves of Neesh are out for blood (or oil, since these are robots). They pay the new humans little mind. Action: Eve: Fog Breath (Reduce Attack and Accuracy/Evasion of all foes) Adam: Agidyne (High Fire attacking rightmost robot)
"Good luck with your FRIEND, Kazuo!" {Sana says to Kazuo in a mocking tone, leaving Tea in the dust with what's going on. Her eyes go back to brown as she shakes her head from feeling slightly woozy. Though when Tea gets her surroundings together, it isn't long before she's back to her friendly self.} "Wow, the duel has started already? I barely even remembered which deck I'm using!" {The girl looks at her preshuffled hand, as well as the random card in defense position. Tea would try to see what it is, but there's a duel going on with multiple people. It almost seems there are some monsters that somebody else summoned, but since they're attacking the robots, the robots must be not friends while the beasts are friends!} "Ah, that's right! Ok, I summon The Unhappy Girl in attack position and attack this robot with The Unhappy Girl! Afterwards, I set a card face down." {As it is customary to announce the moves before you make them when dueling, Tea decides to use her friendly and loud presence to make her moves known just like duelists are supposed to. A card is face down in front of her. In front of the face down spell, the monster card that she summons onto the field is an unhappy girl that sits down with a basket of roses, looking down at the ground with somber. She sheds a single tear which grows into a line of roses that act like spikes, aiming to do some damage to the leftmost robot.} Action: Tea: Summons The Unhappy Girl face up on the field. The Unhappy Girl: Attacks leftmost robot with miniscule almighty. If leftmost robot gets hit, leftmost robot cannot attack nor defend for the following 3 turns. 1 card is in the graveyard, the effect went unused. Once the battle finishes, the card will be reshuffled into the deck.
"HUUUH!? SEN!? THE HELL ARE YOU DOING HERE OF ALL PLACES!?" [Kazuo's jaw drops as she was the last person he was expecting to show up somewhere like this. He was confused. Could she always use her powers like this? It's not like Kokoro had any issues using it. Does she jump into stuff often? He shakes his head, trying to focus on the task at hand.] "I've...never fought machines but... if I was able to beat an alien bitch, shadows and a goddess that could not be damaged in the past, I can deal with this." [Kazuo would prepare himself to rush ahead while pressing his right hand against the floor. Taking on a running position and holding his right arm with his left hand, sparks would appear on the floor, as the entire hand is covered in lightning and visible static.] "I'm giving this move a new application. Let's see how many of them I can get in a row." [As the electricity concentrates in on itself, enough to pierce through anything, despite the magic he was channeling itself not being too powerful. The area right beneath his right would become a small crater.] "Senzai Spark: Rulebreaker!" [Kazuo rushes ahead while still running in a hunched position as he drags his right hand through the floor, leaving a clear trail in response the energy accumulated. The electricity as it passes through the floor would make a loud hissing noise; the energy itself seemingly slithering right through. He would extend his hand to the side as he passes by the closest robot to him, looking to pierce right through with a single move and then rush the same way towards the next, and then another without stopping until the end, if possible. His goal was to cripple the enemy with this attack. Regardless of how much damage it does, the electricity would go away after three impacts. Otherwise, the electricity will remain as it was until the quota is met.] Action: Senzai Spark: Rulebreaker (Medium Electric damage x1-3 against random foes. Pierce.)
(edited by Kazuo_Takahara)
"Just what I need. It's hacker time!" Contrary to his callout, Apollo does not do anything remotely technical. Instead, he would assault the drones with dark whips that would seep into their circuitry. Action: Mamudoon (Medium chance to instant kill on all enemies.)
"buttons? So that was the reason?" he wonders what we're those buttons were for, and he thought it was just for the lower floors effects or anything?? But Thorne let that go of that thought as he thought it would be the best for not ask anything further. "um? Okay?" thorne is just as confused as what did tea did mean all about, but he'll consider that. As they found nesh and sen, the girl who was at the TV at that time, thorne got surprised that he got many familiar faces that he met but never even met, but that aside for now, the robot mentioned something about dynamo, a word he doesn't know. "DYNAMO???? I don't understand but..." he seems to deal with ice spells, with will not work, but first he had to use his green SR card that he just picked it is about and threw it away to flash away as the whole people in this area gain a ghost pictures of sword and some shoe as they can't touch it. "I have to try fire attacks then" as Thorne also picked a red N card too threw it at the robot, it flashes away as it turns to fire. Those two cards flashes into Thorne's hand as it returns and becomes more darker '29.00 sec left' it says. And then, with his tome and the 3 icy butterflies still with him, he made ice spikes and threw them at the robot. Action: buff: speed and attack buff - medium Fire: fire attack - low Ice spikes: medium 4 out of 4 cards on suspense (creator should decide in when those cards could be available to be in use)
Jessica smirks, "now this is my jam. Arsene! Ravish them." she say as Arsene attacks the robots with Maragidyne. "nice job, but we're not done yet." she says as Arsene uses Matarukaja soon afterward. Action: Maragidyne: deals heavy fire damage to all robots on the field Matarukaja: increases all allies attack power (creator can choose when this ends)
Sen draws her sword, ready to fight again, only for the opposite door to open and... Oh god why did they have to show up too? Sen immediately sheathes her weapon once more, and tries to simply run out the door she entered through, not worrying about how the fight would go. Besides, technically we were the intruders here so its most appropriate not to provoke extra hostility anyways. Action: Fleeing, target Sen? I guess.
"Hey! Where are you going!? Miss!?"

-Enemy Phase: Weapon Testing and Prison Entrance-
*Apollo attempts to use his black whips to instantly kill the drones. The drones' whirrng almost sounds like laughter, not believing you actually tried it, before sprining into action. One of the Drones raises it's saw blade as a shield before charging down at Apollo. Behind it, the other drone raises it's canon to the sky and fires a glob of electrical energy in Apollo's general direction.* Enemy Actions Gravtron Drone 1: Drill Charge (Heavy Physical damage to one foe. Target: Apollo) Gravitron Drone 1: Energy Cluster (Heavy Electric damafge to one foe. Target: Apollo) -Enemy Phase: Central Dynamo- * As they are robots, the Fog Breath serves to do nothing to hinder their attack. The fire from Jessica and Adam, however, do, the dog's attack strikes true as does Jessica's attack with her top hat wearing persona. that Joker may want back eventually Teanna and Thorne are able to finish off the leftmost robot, which had already been weakened by Bufudyne earlier. Kazuo however does nothing to help. In fact, he seems to make things worse as, when the remaining two robots take the electrical attack, their eyes glow brighter and their joins spark.* Robot Unique Skill: When they absorb Electricity, they enter the CHARGED state. In CHARGED state, their next attack deals more damage. *With the rightmost robot a burning piles of scrap, the middle robot steps up, it's arms spin rapidly before it propels around the room, threatening to hit everyone in it. The rightmost robot raises it's hands upwards. It's palms open up before firing off a barrage of fireballs across the room.* Enemy Actions Robot 1: Destroyed Robot 2: Haymaker (Medium Physical damage to all foes. Damage doubled due to CHARGED status) Robot 3: Fire bombs (Medium Fire damage to all foes. Damage doubled due to CHARGED status.)
-Player Phase-
*Sen is able to successfully escape the Central Dynamo and makes her way into the corridor beyond. Here, she can either re-enter the main room or take the side path towards the interior of the Central Dynamo through a side door. The main Dynamo chamber is far colder than the main room however. No robots attempt to impede your progress despite a few being seen watching the Dynamo from a window in the corridor.*
The haymaker sends the beast duo flying back, with Adam taking the brunt of the impact. However, Adam’s naturally resistant to fire, so he withstands the fire better than his counterpart. He inhales again and, with chest-gems aglow, breathes another fireball. He’s left panting afterwards. Eve, instead of a magical attack, attempts a physical one. She runs up to the other robot and slams its body with her entire weight to try and knock it over. Neesh as a whole is rather damaged, but their two halves are still able to fight. Action: Adam: Agidyne (Heavy Fire, Robot 2) Eve: Power Hit (Heavy Phys, Robot 3)
"Hey, that's not friendly!" {Tea and the Unhappy Girl both get staggered by the attacks of the robots, though Unhappy Girl takes the brunt of it for the girl that summoned her. The Unhappy Girl cries even more tears, and the robots would feel something within themselves despite being robots. Tea flashes a thumbs up and winks at her opponent.} "But that's ok! Because you have triggered another one of The Unhappy Girl's effects! Any combat with this monster makes whatever opponent that attacks it unable to act when Unhappy Girl is hit by them!" {The emotion that the robots feel is unhappiness. This would cause them to lose motivation to both go on the offensive or defensive until they rid themselves of this feeling. The Unhappy Girl would shed a single tear for them, and reach into her basket. The Unhappy Girl would throw a rose at the middle robot with the laziest throw, doing minimal damage at best. Tea sighs as she looks at her life points, noticing they are much lower than they were when she started this battle.} "Something tells me that this is very unfriendly. I'll make sure the Unhappy Girl isn't able to do anymore damage like this in another duel. At least inside this place! Don't you agree, Kazuo?" Action: Tea - Gets Damaged. Unhappy Girl - Takes both Haymaker and Fire Bombs. Middle Robot and Rightmost Robot are unable to attack nor defend Tea and Unhappy Girl for 1 turn. Middle Robot gets a rose, miniscule almighty damage. (This card will go away after this fight ends, as the depression is too crippling and because Gin said so.)
(edited by Tea_Gardner)
After he casted his ice spikes torawds some robots parts, thorne looked around how people attacked with their own way, in which, thorne looked at the robot in which it almost seem like it'll attack any time sooner, thorne decided to make a small berrier to everyone who could be close enough, and at the right time, but the cost of it would make him deal a damage and make him being palaryzed for any moment, and it seems like even if he goes to the normal ice attacks, he'll get damaged, but protecting everyone first comes, so thorne decides to rise up both of his hands to make a small ice berrier to everyone who are close to him as best as he could. "I'll make a berrier, get as close to me as possible!" thorne shouted to everyone, as he made an ice berrier at the same time as the rightmost robot making a fire attack, and so because of that, the berrier got broke even if it was a fire, it protected everyone who are close to him, but that made thorne palaryzed at this moment, now, his ice wings started to grow a little by making too much ice. Actions: thorne is damaged by the fire attacks Ice berrier: a shield that can protect, costing thorne to be palaryzed and damaged even more HS:Mirage garden: at 2%, not ready yet. (ooc: really should've added this, I am still weak at writing yet) 4 out of 4 cards still on suspense
"Oh come on.. Why does he have to appear everywhere I go?" Sen grumbles to herself as she tramps through the river chamber back up towards the surface. The damage had already been done, but she still didn't want to stay here if she can help it.
["Why is Sen going away!? Was it something I said!? God, don't tell me she hates me now!" is what the young man thinks, dropping to his knees and pressing his hands against the floor, losing it for a second without realizing that his electricity didn't really do anything good. As he shakes his head and gets back on the actual heat of the battle, he is hit with the realization he probably screwed up. He barely reduced the damage by protecting himself with his Sleeping Glove from the first Physical attack, only to feel the full force of the Fire element attack. Kazuo is pushed back to the opposite side from where he came in, and stays on the floor, thinking of something else he could do while in pain.] "Crap...! I can't even use this...!?" [His Sleeping Glove, unlike the rest of his body, had different resistances. Sadly, it only protected his right hand and some of his wrist, while the rest of his body takes the brunt of it all. Why is it only a hand? If he copied the power to transform into an Executioner, it should be a full body thing.] "Am I not strong enough yet...?" [Kazuo hits the ground with his right before getting on his feet, now with some semblance of an idea. He would reach into his pocket and pull out a New Nambu M60, pointing it with his left hand, as the right one may crush it if he isn't careful.] "I took this from a police officer a while ago, and I'm out of options right about now." [Kazuo would close his right eye as he aims for the any of the robot's extremities... of any kind, so the bullet at least makes their movement difficult. He pulls the trigger soon after. His right forearm has various shining blue lines covering it, like veins in straight lines goign everywhere.] Action: "Shoot" (Light Gun damage x1 times against Robot 2)
The physical attack would catch Apollo off guard and graze his chest because he was not prepared for it to go straight towards him, but an attack that was simply generally in his direction would be easy to step out of the way from. In retaliation, Apollo would form a katana and slice through the saw blade's attachment to the drone, attempting to grab onto it and claim it for himself. Disarm (Medium chance to permenantly remove the weapon)

*Sen would be able to make her way out of the facility if she so wished. But was this truly what she wanted? Leave the mystery unsolved? The danger to people unstopped? Would she truly leave because of the presence of one man? That was up to her.*
-Enemy Phase: Weapon Testing and Prison Entrance-
*Apllo's katana would damage the tendril holding the saw blade but it would not break. In releatiation, the drone close to Apollo would swing the saw blade at him. At the back, the ranged Drones would begin charging for an attack.* Enemy Actions Gravitron Drone 1: Saw Swing (Medium Physical damage X3 to one foe. Target: Apollo) Gravitron Drone 2: Canon Charge (Enters CHARGED State)
-Enemy Phase: Central Dynamo-

Meanwhile, thanks to the effects of the Unhappy girl, Robot 3 is stunned, making it unable to attack or defend and leaving it open to attack.* Enemy Actions Robot 2: Destroyed Robot 3: Stunned for 1 turn
Adam and Eve snarl and combine their powers again. Fire and ice, swirling together in a blast that hits the last robot. Once this final attack is done, their bodies become transparent and fuse back into the humanoid known as Neesh. Neesh falls to the ground and curls up with their arms around their knees. They sit there, recovering, silently watching the humans. They don’t see the female human that saved Adam. Where is she? They flatten their ears and whine. Action: Agidyne and Bufudyne, high fire and ice respectively. Time to finish off this boi.

-Central Dynamo-
*Neesh's attacks serve to swiftly finish the robot out off. The danger has passed.*
-Battle Over-
Apollo attempted to back up, getting his shirt sliced up even more and a gash forming on his chest. Irritated, he would attempt to short out the machine by waving his hand and creating a wave of water would rushes across the room and engulfing the enemies. Maraquadyne (heavy water damage to all enemies)
[Kazuo lets out a sigh as he watches the last robot be destroyed quite quickly. He would return his revolver back to his pocket, now with a total of 5 shoots. He would look back the way Sen went through by deciding to go "Nope", 100%, absolutely. He would scratch the back of his head and try to forget, if possible.] "It's not like I intend on being like this, but..." [He would close his eyes in order to get back in the game, clearing his throat. He would look back at the group and consider their options.] "Hmm... well, Apollo's got the other room covered. He is disgustingly strong on his own anyways so there's nothing to be worried about." [He looks back between one end and another, deciding...] "I'll keep moving, I'm in this too deep by now. Let's go this way and stay on your toes everyone. We may find more of these robots." [Kazuo would walk in the opposite direction that Sen took and would aim to get through the only other exit. There was some talk about a "Central Dynamo". He wondered what that was all about.]
{As Neesh went and took down the last robot, Tea used the time to reshuffle her deck. She nodded to Kazuo when the game plan was laid out, putting her cards in the compartment where the deck goes.} "Alright Kazuo, that's completely fine by me!" {Where Kazuo went, Tea followed. And since Tea followed, she made a smile from behind and her eyes were half-closed, her voice taking on a mocking tone. This added comment was the work of Sana.} "But isn't she your girlfriend? That's super inconsiderate of you, you know."
"We don't have that kind of relationship at all. We are barely even friends. You're the only one who keeps pushing for that angle at all." [Kazuo says in a matter-of-fact way, not amused at all by Sana Model T's annoying words. He keeps his hands inside his pockets; well, just the left one. The right hand would rip right through. He almost did it too. Trying to act all calm and collected wasn't his forte when it comes to these subjects, but he was going to try.] "She thinks I'm weird, and that was before seeing my powers properly too. I should just... let her be. Her life as an Executioner and just being part of the student council must be hard enough." [He had to wonder just for how much time a day Sana stalked him. He was almost resigned to it.] "At least focus on Tea staying alive rather than myself. You get all day, every day, right? Not looking at me for a second won’t kill you."
"That girl will think anything's weird when her brain can't handle it. Plus, I'm looking at the future, not the present. The fact that you still think it isn't inevitable really makes me question whether or not you have the capability to show a smidge of intelligence. Let alone the fact that you can't foreshadow something coming from a mile away." {Sana would follow after Kazuo just so Tea could keep up with the crew, but in her mind she mostly does it to give Kazuo some "heartfelt advice". Luckily for him, she decides to go off strong in the middle of some gear clockwork machinery tower or whatever. Because it's not her lungs that she has to worry about.} "But if you really want to leave her alone, you two will just keep avoiding each other for the rest of your dreary lives. And then when you're required to be in the same room with no exit, the only thing that will happen is that a bomb of awkwardness and stupid emotions will set off as soon as some eye contact is made. Is that what you want?" {As Sana snoops through Tea's deck, she skims through every single effect of every long-winded card, noticing how the "Unhappy Girl" that she used back there would actually be extremely annoying to face in an actual battle. He's a teammate anyway, so Sana would show off two of Tea's cards, one of the Unhappy Girl, and another card that synergizes extremely well with what her deck's supposed to do.} "Besides, a "duelist" with THESE type of cards at the risk of dying? You must be out of your mind, having little to no faith in her just like with that other rich girl I just so happened to backseat game for. Maybe if you said "ok, we're friends" she wouldn't nag you about it all the time and focus more on the battles she gets herself into."
"uh. You know, I've never really met a duelist before, surprising considering my age, but still that seems pretty fun."
Despite having a resitance to fire, Jessica was still pretty banged up and tired, having multiple cuts and bruises all over her body, but she's still smirking all the same, fangs showing, while playfully playing with a few of her bullets.
Neesh
#102

After a little while, Neesh stands up and stretches. The human they’d been with will probably be fine. They look at the door they came through one last time then follow the others close behind. These humans are having an argument they don’t understand. Humans are complicated. “Is Sen the human we were with?” Neesh finally speaks up after mulling over the duo’s words.
"oh, hey Neesh!"
Neesh
#104

Neesh tilts their head at Jessica. “We never told you our name. Who are all you humans?” They hug themselves tightly, but not too tightly since they’re still aching. These humans are not normal humans. Normal humans run from Neesh’s beast form and don’t have fancy powers like Neesh does. Their ears, while this conversation is going on, swivel around to catch any noise of interest.
"I'm a telepath, so I kinda scanned it off your brain, also, I think that's actually a cool power to have. Also, I'm not technically fully human, I'm a fox girl, if you couldn't tell."
"...Thank you, Sana. But again, this is not necessary so please drop the idea. Whatever I feel or don't doesn't concern you. U-Unless it does actually concern you directly, in which case that's an exception." [He looks at his right arm at last to notice white lines covering his right forearm, even on top of the jacket.] "If it's about anything r-romantic, I have a better chance with Sumeragi-sensei or Gad. If I even wanted that kind of route. For now, I just want to get to the bottom of all this." [He has a light blush on his cheeks as he speaks. Knowing his composure was reaching its end, he decided to remain quiet until he needed to speak again.]
"huh, pretty rough, but not for me most of the time, considering I'm dead."
{Sana laughed to herself as Kazuo started to blush. After all, just pull at some heartstrings and then you'll find joy in someone else's blunders. Joy is very hard to find after all, it's good to get every ounce that you can find in hopes that any deepseated crappy feelings go away for even a second.} "Pft, nice one, bro. I don't actually give a shit about your feelings. Find a balance next time. You put too much faith in me there." {She wiped away an imaginary tear from her eye before she took a second to mull over his words. Out of all the names he listed?...Wow, what a copout. This reward wasn't worth it at all. The girl would blush herself, but turns her whole body away so he doesn't see. This girl's blush is still hers.} "Especially because you're out here forgetting names. Dumbass, my god. You know what? Have fun figuring that out with friend girl, idiot." {Tea's eyes would turn brown again, and she'd wake up standing and feeling slightly confused. And feeling red. She looked over to Kazuo, and proceeded to follow her friend. At the same time, two cards were out of her deck, and she had to reshuffle her hand as she walked.} "...hey Kazuo, what happened again?"

Neesh growls at the weird voice coming from the ceiling. "We don't like animal control! Do we have to beat them up again?" Their body ripples, ready to split into two again. They search for any big mechanisms that look important. The security lady doesn't want them here, so there must be something important! Neesh doesn't really have a plan aside from "commit property damage to destroy noisy machines." Still, it's a good plan if they say so themself.

Baffled by the endurance of the drones, Apollo is relatively ravished by their attacks, bleeding sporadically with his ribs punctured. With the risk level apparent, he would withdraw from his course and action and clutch his wounds, rushing back the path he came from as he shouts up. "Kazuo! Help! Kazuo!" He would take a breath, looking back to analyze his enemies. Run away
"Nothing you have to worry about, Tea. Just keep walking and don't fall." [He would say to the girl calmly, just glad Sana was gone for the moment... up until a voice calls to them. Kazuo clears his throat and raises his own voice.] "IF YOU ARE AN A.I. THEN SHUT UP AND OPEN THE DOOR, WE ARE NOT GOING AWAY. BZZZZZT, EVEN THOUGH WE HAVE NO REASON TO BE HERE TO BEGIN WITH BZZZZZZT." [His tone is monotone] "Eat it." [Same as Neesh, he would look around for a way to get through or just enter the place. He felt like... someone was calling out for him. But he didn't mind, it was probably his own imagination. Instead, he focused in moving forward, whatever it takes.]
"Alrighty Kazuo, that's fine." {The girl would take one look at how far up they've gotten, absolutely keeping it in mind as they keep going. After all, it'd be bad to lose some cards if she falls, or breaks the duel disk. Especially that. When Kazuo goes ahead and bullies some machinery, Tea instead waves hello at it.} "Hey there! It'd be amazing if you could let us pass! Oh, and I was just wondering if we could be friends." {Tea would stay behind Kazuo and hold a card face down, not actually putting it on the duel disk yet as there have been no battles that have started. The fact that there is one that will boil up and most likely come to fruition doesn't concern her though, making friends is what's important. If no friends can be made, she can always just set the card down.}
Once she's out of the waterway Sen stops running, figuring she was far enough. The girl stops to catch her breath. She had wanted to make sure the place was safe, but she can't really do that whenever she keeps running into people from school. Since going in isn't an option, Sen has no choice but to run out, hoping that the others would write it off as seeing things or whatever

Neesh
#116

Neesh, scared yet defiant, lets themself split into the ginger and tan beasts again. Adam stays back, unable to do much, but Eve roars and fires a Bufudyne into the blades. The sawblades are made for grinding ice but Eve is attempting to freeze or break them somehow. Maybe jam a mechanism if she’s lucky. If that fails, they two will flee unless one of the humans can stop the blades.
"Too bad for you, two can play at the same game. But first, I'll double the chances with Doppel." [From Kazuo's body, a spiritual being would separate, with the shape of a woman, quickly covered by an armor with a serpentine feel to it. She would copy the young man's every movement. Kazuo would then punch the air, followed too by his Doppel.] "High-speed Alloy! Break it!" [Two vortexes would appear near the part that connects both the gear-like saws with whatever kind of machine or metal was holding them together. Being so close, the impact of the gears and metal pieces released from each vortex should hopefully be enough to break the things and stop their movement, as the projectiles are released at the speed of a bullet train. If that isn't enough, then Kazuo would know better and would rush back. He didn't feel like dying today. He still has homework to finish.]
{As the security announcer decided to make things hard in an unconventional way, Tea's other get out of jail free card is nullified. She pouts a bit and looks at upwards, or wherever the security announcer is speaking.} "Aw man, that's not a very friendly proposition!" {Being a conventional duelist, she doesn't have any actual way of contributing. If nothing from her friends actually work to deactivate the gear-like saws, she'd follow behind and run back so as to not be able to make friends with the afterlife. Not today at least.}
"why does the security AI have to be so rude!?" Jessica shoots herself in the head again with her Evoker, this time shouting: "Izanagi! Destroy those saw blades!" Izanagi then goes in and uses Cross slash on the left saw blade. Action: Cross Slash: Heavy physical damage to the left blade, hits twice, hence the cross.

"Tch... don't you know what happens when you corner a cat? Worthless machine!" As Apollo was injured, he had not the momentum to be forced right into to the guarding drone. However, he could still shuffle along well enough to maneuver behind the assaulting drone. Desperate, he would curl his hand in the air, forming a large hand out of boulders with its palm open and facing the assaulting drone. In a swift and brutal movement, it would slam the drone in a trajectory that would cause it to collide directly with its ally. "Huff... huff... and other exhausted sounds. Tell me that's it?" Specific Combat Maneuver (heavy earth (force?) damage to 1 foe plus heavy impact damage to/from anything struck by the attacked foe adjusted according to physics)
"This is fun!" she says, smirking as her persona is hacking at the saw's joints.

*Apollo's interesting manovour works, slamming the robot blocking his path in the back.

Sparks glow from it's body. In a swift motion, it unburies it's blades and spins rapidly, creating a tornado of blades.

The two beasts make noises that can best be described as excited. With the scary machine dying, the duo bound towards the door. They’ll be following the waterway path to the higher floors once they’re through since that’s the one they know best. They don’t bother rejoining. Four legs are faster than two! Were they more aware of pop culture, this would be the perfect time to make a Metroid joke.
"Ha..haha! That wasn't so bad! H-Hey, wait up!" [Kazuo was admiring his own work before he decided to merely follow Neesh wherever it was they were going, this... weird little character being.]
"Neesh! Don't just run off like that." Jessica then chases after Neesh, or atleast the two beasts that are Neesh, Adam and Eve.
"Kazuo, are they a friend of yours too? Wow, you've been making a lot lately!" {Tea compliments Kazuo on his ability, or rather not knowing at all about his ineptitude at the concept of being social. Either way, she was glad he stopped the gears, following after Neesh like Kazuo is currently doing.}

*As the group reaches the small, under construction area past the waterway, they'd stop and wait for the explosion. An explosion that never came. Seems the drones were able to stabilize the reactor and prevent a meltdown.* *Meanwhile, in Weapon Testing, though the drones remain active, the lights flicker and the field in the large door leading to the Prison shuts down. A loud, almost bestial cry echoes from beyond.*

#128

The beasts stop to listen to their surroundings. Nothing is breaking down or exploding. They’d been worried for nothing. They’re not sure where to go from here, so they decide to sit down and rest for a bit. Adam licks at some burns on one of his paws. Eve rests her head on his back, staring at the group curiously, almost quizzically. She seems at a loss of what to do next.
"holy shit! What was that howl? Must've been quite a while away, considering how faint it was, also Tea, it's nice to finally meet a duelist, aafter a 264 year lifetime, I mean, that all actually seems pretty fun. Also, I doubt Kazou actually knows how to conversate andd be social with people." She is pretty jittered and on edge because of the howl.
"I can make friends just fine, I just choose not to because it means less time to spend on myself. I consider that to be annoying. Now that I can choose what to do in my free time, still young, I must." [Kazuo lied as naturally as he breaths.] "Maybe we should go check what the hell is up with that roar. If anything, it'll be the source of it all... whatever it is that is happening in here. It feels pretty... alien."
"not quite sure I believe that, but okay, we'll follow your lead." What she meant was that she does not believe him at all, but has to go with.
"Tee-hee! Don't worry Kazuo, I believe in what you said! But just remember, if you're in a tight spot, just believe in the power of friendship!" {With the delivery and wording of her first two lines, it was tough to register whether it was Sana talking or not.} "But yeah, I think that we should check that noise out. We've gone this far, and we also have no way to return. It's basically pointless to stop now!"

Again, Apollo wasn't even standing near enough to the drone to be able to be hit by it simply spinning around in place. He would use this opportunity to wrap dark energy around his wounds, bandaging them. For his attack, he would once again call forth a rushing wave. Maraquadyne

#134

Eve huffs and shakes herself off. That’s probably a sign of agreement. She nudges Adam and listens intently again. If she doesn’t hear any more noises, she’ll try to lead the way towards where she thinks the sound came from. The two don’t know what kind of creature it is but in their state, they’ll have to trust these strange humans’ strength.

*All in agreement, the group start traveling back through the water way, bypassing rhe Central Dynamo, currently full of drones and robots trying to repair the ice crushing gears, and re-enter the main room between the Dynamo and Weapon Testing. Down the Weapon Testing corridor, they can hear fighting, likely between their long missing companion and whatever security has loomed down upon them though actually helping them out is up to you. Beyond that, another roar belows along with creaking of metal. The entire facility is far warmer than it had been before meaning the danger of frostbite or hypothermia has passed.*
Neesh
#136

Adam and Eve nod to each other then split up. Adam creeps towards the roaring, staying close to any humans that go that way. Eve decides to investigate the sound of fighting - not getting too close, but just close enough to assess the situation. They don’t intend to be separate for long. If one needs the other, they can simply know. That is the unity of Neesh.
Jessica, bored waiting, turns her left arm back to it's original, animatronic form and repairs and finetunes it, as they head toward the growling.
[Kazuo would move his body around, already liking the fact the cold was going away. He thanked having his own jacket, but even so, it was all hard to take. Hopefully, he wouldn't catch a cold all of a sudden. He feels like sneezing, but it's got to be the dust, right? Regardless, he chooses to follow the roar.] "The sooner we reach the end, the better it is for everyone." [No matter what is happening, he pushes onward. He was bracing himself though, as a fight may or may not break out.]
{Tea would suddenly feel a lot less restricted, more free in her movements. Maybe it was because of the fact that the room was heating up now. Either way, it felt good that it was warmer, though Tea herself didn't even know on that it was supposed to be after a few seconds passed.} "Wow, I forgot we were supposed to be cold all this time!" {It must have been the power of friendship that lead her to believe this cold as something that past a bit ago. Her friend is advancing, so she will too.}

*Everyone walks right on by their in peril ally, not even stopping to help. The drones, snesors locked on Apollo don't even try to stop you as you approach the prison door. The panel next to the door is unpowered now and the field protecting it is off. The door doesn't seem too heavy so it might be possible to pry it open. Behind it, a powerful cry echoes as well as the cracking and creaking of something.*

#141

Eve, however, did investigate Apollo. She doesn't like the look of the drones. Rather than help fight them, though, Eve attempts to dash in and yoink the poor human out, sending out a Bufudyne as a distraction. If this succeeds, she'll run away, holding Apollo with her jaws and forepaws. Adam sniffs at the door then wedges his claws between any cracks he can find. He's the strongest of the two halves of Neesh, and definitely stronger than the average human. He growls and tries to open the door with all his strength.
"So he's not even done...?" [Apollo was still fighting? Well, he's already getting help so might as well go towards the prison. However, Neesh had that pretty much done for. Considering his options, Kazuo points his finger towards the current enemies; Doppel coming out of him once more.] "High-speed Alloy!" [The projectiles are shoot at both drones, releasing metal, scraps and gears at great speed from two vortexes invoked by him. Now, Doppel is covered by static; it can only be used for one more move.] Action: High-speed Alloy (Medium Gun to 1) x2

Apollo is dragged away by Eve, his weight proving helpless against the beastly force. Sighing with relief, he glances in Kazuo's direction. "Khh... what the hell took you guys so long? Hey, person who wants to be my friend, come over here and aid me! We need to discuss how to proceed from here."
{While it's customary and very much appreciative to help people, Tea is ecstatic as Apollo decides to talk to her despite his ground rules. Whether it's out of desperation or a desire to start a genuine friendship, the girl is overjoyed.} "Ah, I thought you'd never ask, Apollo! Just for you, I'll set a card down to start our new friendship!" {The girl would set the card that was previously in her hand down onto the field. Because it wasn't flipped up yet, it would appear as a flat card ominously hanging sideways in the air.} Tea: Sets a card down in the name of friendship.

Don't worry friends, I've got this covered!" {The girl would stand in front of the drones as she flipped her card face up, revealing a girl that was like the Unhappy Girl but slightly different in clothing at least. Unlike the Unhappy Girl who sat down with her roses, this girl stood up with her roses.} "I flip my card face up to reveal The Unhappy Maiden! With this card, I effectively stop you from attacking me and my friends!" {The Unhappy Maiden would take the brunt of the attack, sadly getting hit as the girl and her basket of roses digitalize out of existence. As the card is sent to the graveyard, the robots would feel something in themselves that would urge them to stop them from further attacking, even if they were just hunks of metal automated to do so with intruders.} Action: Tea flip summons The Unhappy Maiden: The Unhappy Maiden: dies to stop attack. 1 card is now in the graveyard for this battle.

Apollo sits on the ground, pulling off his shirt and throwing it at a nearby wall, revealing his chiseled body earned from a life of grueling training. His abs were like stones with an appealing smoothness, save for the pitch black dark matter covering the gash across them. "That helps, but it's not the kind of help I need. Just look at this!" He would purposely release the darkness on his wounds, allowing a gush of blood to pour out of his chest as he started to lay down. "Using my own power doesn't allow the wounds to heal properly."
[Kazuo, knowing his demonic hand would be able to remain in a decent enough condition, uses it to defend himself. He knows what is about to happen, so he needs act quickly before it backfires. His body is hit four times by the electricity, making him fall to the ground in pain; his human body is hit three times, but the hand was struck once. He cannot stop himself from yelling in pain while it lasts. Unhappy Maiden's effect comes to pass in the middle of it, which lets him catch his breath, even if still worn down. His body was only human after all.] "If...! This is how it's going to be, then I'm not letting you pull any of your bullshit again! I'm bringing you down!" [Knowing these machines may just absorb the electricity and increase the power of their attack, Kazuo decided he needed something more. Power. The white lines covering his right forearm since a while ago become more intense, increasing in number until it becomes enveloped.] "Power, I need it!" [The light solidifies and breaks apart to reveal his forearm now covered in more armor of the same metal as his hand and wrist. Four scale-like pieces are layered on top of one another, looking like gills, all over the same sturdy "leather" as the palm of his right hand, going all the way up to his elbow, becoming a part of his jacket almost seamlessly. The scales move on their own, at the same rhythm as Kazuo's breathing.] "Fall to the ground..." [The scale-like armor opens itself, releasing a massive amount of steam all over the area; the noise this makes being comparable that of a giant Hawk's piercing scream. Soon after, it would all quickly rush towards the Drones and surround both in a fashion that made it seem like it had a mind of its own, hiding their exact location from the rest of the group.] "Nikkou Storm!" [The steam would behave strangely, all within being assaulted by sudden strong currents of wind, concentrated enough to actually cut as if it was done by a red hot blade, again and again, aiming to completely ruin the Drones.] Action: Nikkou Storm (Medium Physical + Wind to all.)
Jessica finishes her work on her arm, then starts winding up for a punch, leaping through the air toward the right most robot, then punches a hole clean through it.

The rain of electricity doesn’t strike Eve thanks to Tea’s card, but Adam is hit before the effect can take place. He retreats from the door and rejoins Eve. The two beasts stand on either side of Apollo like fluffy shields. They don’t choose to attack. They don’t want to draw any more aggro. Action: Nothing lol

*Thanks to the attack from Kazuo and not Jessica cause fuck that godmod shit, the two robots are sent flying out of the air, exploding on impact with the ground. The area is now free to explore. As the battle concludes, a large clattering from behind the door is heard along with another growl, this one sounding as if someone is struggling to do something while still being hostile and animalistic.*
"Holy shit balls! What the fuck was that!?" she as her form flickers between animatronic fox and human fox girl.

"Wait, guys, I have an idea!" Apollo teleports away, having gone back in time somehow. He then comes back having changed absolutely nothing but setting off a chain of events that causes a hot dog stand to materialize in the next room and giving himself even more wounds. "Well that didn't work."
[Kazuo closes his right hand into a fist, his cheeks getting red with pride as he was able to become stronger now. He would look at his arm now, slightly different. Taking a closer look, he would realize the four scales on his forearm could move at his own discretion, like they were actually a part of his body.] "This is so weird, it's like gills, even though I'm not breathing through them. It's... weirdly biological, at least." [The Sleeping Glove was not merely a glove now. Inspecting it closer, he decided it needed a better name.] "Awakening Gauntlet. I think that's a cool enough name." [Then the growl came. Kazuo is startled at first, but then decides that it's best to ignore the shenanigans of dumbass people. He approaches the door and carefully tries to open it, at least enough to peek inside.] "Can you come out to play...?"
{Tea would sigh out of relief now that the short battle is over. The girl was proud of herself for being able to protect her friends. Speaking of friends, she's been with those two people in particular without even saying hello. The girl would walk up to them and properly introduce herself.} "Hi there, I'm Tea Gardner! Do you two want to be friends?" {Tea would smile at them and extend her hand with the duel disk on it for a friendly handshake.}
Neesh
#156

The two beasts merge into one, deciding to take on their humanoid form so they can actually talk. Neesh stares at Tea’s outstretched hand. They don’t know what it means so they just sniff it. Still, this is good enough for them, like letting a dog sniff your hand to be familiarized with you. “Friends. We can be friends. We are Neesh. Nice to meet you, human.” They wag their tail excitedly. The sounds nearby are scary but that can wait.

*As everyone else gets aquianted and eats the sudden;y appeared hot dogs to heal themselves of their injuries, Kazuo peaks into the Prison. Strangely, despite it's name, the room is but a single, large chamber. High up in the air, a stopped clock sits, obviously the source of the earlier ticking. Whatever it's purpose was, it's not doing it anymore. Connected by gears and metal far down below, hanging from the odd prison device is a large, shirtless, muscly man. His skin is deep red, looking like flames, and the only article of clothing he's wearing is a pair of purple trousers with strange symbols written down the side you can see in white, like a prisoner ID. Despite him obviously supposed to be hangign from both arms, one of them is free, hanging loosely by his side with a lot of scrap metal litering the ground. Long Orange hair covers his face. The sound of the man sniffing the air can be heard before his voice echoes, deep and gravely like he hasn't drunk anything in a decade.* Strangers... Come in... And answer me a question. Am I real? *If you wish to oblige him, step forwards. If not, the exit is open.*

"Now that it's safe, i'm going on ahead. Nice to meet you Nitch." Apollo would pat the head of the humanoid less than gently, smirking with amusement at the expense of their comfort. Before long, he would quit and retrieve his shirt, placing it in his bag. An unfamiliar sense of concern washing over him, he would go with the group as they make their way into the next room, being the first to cautiously approach the strange prisoner and answer his question semi-confidantly. "I'd say so. The hot dogs allowed me to fully recover, so not like I can go into... the thing where your brain is like... due to blood loss. Anyways, I must say your situation draws my full attention."
"that's definitely something very disturbing, but if he's here, like that, it's probably for a reason." She says as her flickers get a little more frequent, due to the fact that she is and has been very unsettled and on edge.
[Kazuo sighs, placing his left hand inside his pocket and looking at the...guy. He felt like he had seen someone like this somewhere before. Maybe a fighting game? He couldn't be sure, he just gave the vibe. However, seeing Apollo so eloquently deal with the issue, less so than Jessica of all people, he would speak up.] "Are you real? I'm sure you can tell for yourself. You don't need anyone to tell you. In fact, you should introduce yourself first." [Kazuo points at himself.] "I'm Kazuo, a third-year high school student. Why are you here? What is this place? And more importantly, who are you?"
{Tea would jump for joy when Neesh would accept her friend request. Acting as if one of the many friends she's made by being alive is yet another accomplishment she can add to her resume or something of the sort.} "That's so amazing! Come on new friend, let's make more!" {The high schooler would pump her fist in the air before running towards the door that was opened, standing alongside Kazuo to meet the man in the prison. Tea would look at him with a smile, not bothering to ask about the situation at all. At the very least, she hard something about saying what is "real". Friendship is very real, so surely he'd accept.} "I'm Tea Gardner, it's nice to meet you! Whether you're real or not, I still want to be your friend!"

#162

Neesh is hesitant to follow Tea into the room, but if the humans are all doing it, it should be fine. After practically inhaling some of the hot dogs, Neesh runs in to catch up with everyone. They stare at the man for a while. Why is a human locked away here? Neesh frowns and gets closer, sniffing around. They nod. “We can see and hear and smell you, so you must be real. We are Neesh. You can pat us like the male mystic human did. Just once though.”

*The Man falls silent at the groups answer. Then, all of a sudden, he laughs boisterously, revealing two rows of sharp, shark like teeth. Yellow, cat like eyes fall on you as he sniffs again through a pig like snout. He tenses, pulling with his restricted arm at his binding. The clock above creaks and cracks and groans before giving out entirely. The entire structure collapses, spreading dust and snow around the room. Above, the Security Announce can be heard.* PRISONER "OGRE" HAS ESCAPED CONFINEMENT. DIVERTING POWER TO PRISON. LOCKING DOWN PRISON. CONTACTING SYSTEM ADMINISTRATOR. *The large iron doors behind you snap shut and power back on, locking you in with the escaped prisoner. The man rises from the scrap pile and lets out a deep breath.* I see. So I truly do exist do I. Ha. Now that's a laugh. Ha ha ha. So, what is that Bastard Crow planning sending you fools to let me free, eh? What has he told you about me?
"Shi-!" [He barely avoids the door that was about to crush him, being trapped inside with the rest of the group. He sighs as Doppel appears one final time to merely drop a set of scraps and gears, copying Kazuo's simultaneous move, leaving 2 sets of it on the arena. Doppel completely goes away this time around.] "I knew this weirdo was going to react like that... I'll stay out of it for now. They can deal with that since they got themselves in this by playing by his rules." [But Kazuo, if allowed, will do his own thing. He stays near the shut door, deciding to keep his distance no matter what.]

Neesh leaps back, landing as two beasts with hackles raised. Despite the two halves of Neesh being canine, they don’t react to Ogre like wild dogs. They react like cornered prey.

While the circumstances may have sent everyone else into a shock, Apollo was mostly unphased. Once "Ogre" breaks free and makes an inquiry, Apollo shakes his head and chuckles. "'Fraid i've never spoken to a Crow. I believe all of us here were simply exploring this place for our own personal reasons. Lots of strong-willed individuals in Tokyo do the same and often band together temporarily. But, that's besides the point. We don't know anything about you, my goal is assessing the threat this place serves to society. I have no qualms with letting you free, but i'm always welcome to having allies... er, probably not the best time for me to drone on like this." Apollo would take a look at the door which just recently closed, punching it with all his strength to get a feeling of its density. Punchy Move (Heavy Physical Damage)
{The girl would take a single step back, looking up at the “Ogre” or whomever this person is. Sadly, they didn’t actually answer her request, so Tea’s mind is in a bit of a disarray. As a last resort, the girl would turn to Kazuo and follow him, gazing at him with a confused expression.} “...Kazuo, is he saying no?” {Unlike Sana who would ignore the situation because it’s stale, Tea is trying to get her senses back together with Kazuo’s help. Of course, this question is still idiotic, but the girl would ask anyway.} Tea - Is Stupid. Minuscule Psy Damage to the guy she’s asking the question.

* Apollo's attempts to punch the door does, predictably nothing. Behind him, as Adam attempts and fails to intimidate him, Ogre grins.* Ah. I see now. Yes, that makes sense. So he sent you to kill me. Well, I suppose I can let you try. * Ogre cracks his neck. As he does so, the pigments in his skin change. Electric fills the air as his skin changes from Red to Dark Yellow. Ogre slowly raises his arm. As he does, electric sparks from his arm to the metal ruins on the ground. It raises up, forming a large, metalic claw that he then uses to sweep across the room, the dragging noise filling the large chamber with a cacophonus din.* Enemy Actions Ogre: Magnetised Claw (Heavy Physical Damage to all foes) Ogre Unique Ability: Adaptation (Changes elemental resistances and abilities at will.

Adam and Eve attempt to move out of the way, but they only manage to mitigate the damage at best. They know getting up close is bad. This Ogre is stronger than both of them combined.

"Wait a damn moment!" Apollo rushes in in an attempt to deescalate the situation, using his strength to resist the push of his magnetic claw and it flips him upside down, landing on his feet. The brash youth would then come face to face with Ogre, creating a wall of stone which separates the two of them from the rest of the party. "Hang in there, guys. Let me try and settle this first!" He then directly addresses the supposed enemy, giving him a look of sincere concern. "I assure you, we aren't involved at all with whatever deeper plot is going on. Shouldn't our present inaction prove as much?" TALK (Convince the enemy to ceasefire)
[Kazuo sees the attack coming, given the guy was clearly having a quick out of fighting someone else. He rises his forearm to protect himself and is able to avoid great damage to the rest of his more vulnerable body. His Awakening Gauntlet being resistant to Physical damage certainly helped, but he knew he wasn't going to be luck for too long. He rubs his armored right forearm, still feeling the impact.] "I don't expect him to settle down any time soon... He will also be changing, so I have to hit him with something he won't expect or stop easily..." [Kazuo outright decides to ignore Tea's idiotic question as he tries to come up with some kind of plan. Considering Apollo could overpower the guy maybe, Neesh may have enough abilities to remain flexible and Tea's tactical aid. He considers the best thing he can do is stay away. He will drag people down and worst case scenario, get killed too quickly.] "Tea, focus on getting in the way of this guy. If you can, use cards that stop attacks or keep its attention. That way, Apollo and those other two may be able to attack normally, and I will also prepare my own move." [Kazuo keeps his voice down, so only Tea could possibly listen to him. A vortex drops gears and scraps in another area of the general vicinity, just so he avoids making obvious piles.] Action: High-speed Alloy N°4 (Medium Gun to 1.) Aimed at the floor. Materials: Alloy x 3
“Hi, what are you two doing here?” {The girl would greet two of her friends that got into a short-lived scuffle with the ogre. At the same times she felt something that had a lot of force, almost pushing her onto the ground. Tea would blink a few times before looking at her duel disk, which showed her Life Points decreasing.} “Aw geez. Kazuo, I think he said no.” {She would look at him worried until he said stuff about his plan and whatnot. Despite Tea being on the brink of not understanding anything, the girl would take 5 cards out of her duel disk, smiling with her eyes closed. She’d speak to Kazuo in a hushed tone just to be respectful.} “Well, if you want to talk about strategy, I’ve got everything figured out in case something bad happens. I think? I don’t know, there’s this big wall in the way, so I can’t really see the person that’s not my friend.” {Tea would proceed to set down two cards that are faced down. One of them were placed in front of the other instead of beside each other. In preparation of the next phase, the girl would draw from her deck as Apollo was busy talking with Ogre. Not like she knew exactly that, though.} Tea - Sets two cards face down onto the field.

Apollo would go flying back through the arena, his barricade disintegrating into mere pebbles after he passes through it. He would land on his feet, skidding back to where he was just in front of the door which closed on them. Having ended up there with only bruises, Apollo considered himself none the worse for wear. "Then yours must be biting hands. Honestly, what good does fighting us here and now even serve you? At least good a sandwich beforehand." Whilst Apollo was talking, the shadows in the room would manifest in greater forms, flying in the air as black mana which would swirl in front of Apollo. The shadows would then form envelop his hands and upper arms, appearing as if he was being devoured by a veritable eldritch horror. In one heavy motion, he would stare Ogre down and place his hands forth, unleashing a wave of an unnatural void that offended the very laws of reality themselves, darkness tearing into and ravishing the area at mach speed. Yomi's Breath (Severe curse damage to all foes)
[Kazuo would move to the side just in case as Apollo is launched back. Figures. Still, things were working just fine for now. He considered... he could use High-speed Alloy again, however, it would mean he would become a target in this guy's head. Instead, he decided to cross his arms together, a white aura now covering him as he absorbs the vibrations created in the arena.] "Almost done now, I should be able to be more explosive.

Tea would look up at Apollo.} "Oh hey, there he goes!!!

Eve stands her ground despite the swirling wind and flying metal. Adam is not so lucky. His body, built to withstand constant heat, is vulnerable to high winds. He tumbles to the ground with a yelp. The two will have to rethink their strategy. Once Adam is back on his feet courtesy of the magician’s healing, the two beasts move out. They decide to go for a riskier, more aggressive move and charge Ogre. Adam breathes fire at Ogre’s face and Eve joins in with breath of fog. The area around Ogre becomes thick with obscuring mist...

It's was time, raising his left arms, ready to punch the air.] "I've never used this attack so many times one after another, but I can feel this will be unique... let's go! High-speed Alloy! Crash into him!" [The singular vortex appears, bigger than usual. Then, full speed out of it, an entire steam locomotive directly at Ogre.

The healing from Tea's card would keep Apollo in fighting shape, giving him the strength to run through the violent gales. Lucky for him, he wasn't wearing his shirt anymore so it couldn't get torn from the rigorous motion. Once again, he would stand face to face with the enemy, his form obscured by the fog. "And just who are you anyway? Picking a fight for no reason other than arrogant delusion? Tch, pathetic weak-minded scum like you aren't even worth my time. Have fun dying to the rest of my allies, I've got bigger fish to fry." Just like that, Apollo would turn his back to Gorsaloth, secretly brandishing his katana completely hidden from enemy view. Taunt (Enemies will target user, but user will receive less damage.)
{White Magician Pikeru would make sure to cast a small heal to the whole party before it departs. Both her and the card that was set down would reveal another girl with blue pigtails similar to lightning and a purple jumpsuit. Due to Ogre's attack, they both digitalize out of existence, but only White Magician Pikeru causes Tea's life points to drop.} "This is ok! Now that Rai-Mei is in the graveyard, I can add one 2 star monster card with a light attribute right into my hand! Along with whatever I'll draw, of course." {Tea would draw two cards to add to her hand, looking over towards Kazuo as he summons the local train out of nowhere. Well, maybe that's what he was trying to set up when the wall was still there. This locomotive would give her an idea.} "I activate my trap card, Windstorm of Etaqua! Afterwards, I shall summon Ebon Magician Curran and then put a card face down." {Tea would summon another young looking girl, this time with a black dress and a bunny hat. The card that was behind the previous monster card would reveal itself, summoning a bird that would whip up a strong, windy force similar to a tornado. Although this wouldn't hurt the Ogre, it would serve to stop the scraps of metal from traveling back towards the party. At the same time, it works to accelerate the speed at which the locomotive would travel, as well as any other projectile type attacks that hurl at him, including Ebon Magician Pikeru's dark magic attack.} Action: Tea - Casts Windstorm of Etaqua, stopping the scraps from traveling forward and accelerates the speed of Kazuo's locomotive and other ranged attacks.

*Though it doesn't appear to do much, the fire spell hits the Ogre. The Fog Breath is a bit more substatial as, since it blinds him, he becomes unable to react to the train of gears and scrap metal crashing into him and launching him into the far wall, follows by the blast of dark magic which would strike it's target. Nevertheless, Ogre stands back up, cracking his neck and brushing dust off his chest.* Who am I? Ha. Who am I? What a stupid question. Do I need to be someone? No. All I need is to exist. And to prove that I exist. For people to know that I exist. Is that not what every person in this crappy universe wants? To be remembered after they've gone?

Apollo, having a defensive build, would take a great deal of effort to be moved by wind alone. Still, the tempest serves to throw him off, delaying any chance he has to attack. This would not keep him from responding, a clean slice through the air between him and his foe showing he was unwilling to yield. "You want to know my reason? I've been doing this kind of stuff ever since my mom died, it was the only way I could provide for myself and my sister. Now, I simply have a role to play here. This place has no value in this world. I will destroy it." Apollo's composure was oddly calm considering his breathing had become frantic and his heart rate elevated. He would attempt to hide these facts to the best of his ability, attempting to look intense by gripping his sword tightly and spreading his feet, preparing to move at any moment. Sword Stance (Raises the rate at which user can block enemy attacks)

Eve had been in position for a back attack, but that idea fails since her target is blown away. Not that it matters, anyway, since the roar freezes both her and Adam.

["Apollo's mother is dead? That's something." Kazuo thinks. However, he was too focused on the battle to give it any more thought that than. He was carefully watching the guy's every move. It didn't seem like he liked moving around too much so that may work in his favor. The Fear effect too, he felt nervous at first but nothing much happened after the fact; a Serpent's silhouette coils around his body until it passes him by, keeping him calm. ] "Serpent...? Right, his spirit is still inside me..." [Being effective in creating Fear in others, it meant he had some resistance to it. He had to wonder what he would be without his Chimera. Kazuo closes his eyes for a moment, picturing yet another one. His body is covered by red markings, looking like furious waves from the sea.] "I call upon your name, Bearer of the Mark!" [Kazuo opens his eyes, now shining with golden light. He claps his hands together.] "Deep Transmigration!!" [The markings manage to latch on to the white aura covering his body and rip the vibrations apart, creating distortions in the space they occupy, like the force wanted to break free. Soon enough, the gears and meal pieces scattered all across the room would roll, and then laugh themselves against it. The metal would melt and shift form, one large beak followed by a large head with irregular spikes and horns coming out of it in all directions. Two large sockets appear, singular red dots servings as a reminder they were eyes.] "Manifestation of Apathy, take their breath away!" [From the massive head, 8 long limbs come out, moving on their own all around. Not only that, they could become shorter and longer at will. The red lights within the dark sockets become more intense as Kazuo's eyes return to grey. A deep hum is heard all over the place.] "2.41 - Deep Asphyxia Octopus!!" Kazuo stands behind the being as it stares down at Ogre. "This is it! The sixth Deep Chimera, Kanaloa...! I think that's all of them. Now I wonder, how many Inferno Chimera I can make, so far, I have two of those...!" [Kazuo grins, excited at the prospect. He covers his mouth as Octopus focuses on attacking. It would slowly move its tentacles around while a bright pink liquid seeps from each orifice in its body. In the blink of an eye however, rushing at Ogre like his body was actually absorbing it. No trace of it would be left on the field, and upon contact, it would have no actual impact, like the liquid was never real to begin with. However, Ogre may find himself suffering from a terrible, nearly physically exhausting headache, while also feeling somehow weaker mentally; Nightmare Crush.] Action: [Kazuo] - Deep Transmigration (5 Alloy + Vibration Field Level 1 = Deep Asphyxia Octopus.) [Deep Asphyxia Octopus] - Nightmare Crush (Heavy Psychokinesis to all + Higher susceptibility to Mental type ailments.)
{Tea wouldn't be instilled by fear, as she barely knew what he was doing until Adam started to act up due to fear from Ogre's attack. Unknowingly to her, it would also effect her Ebon Magician Curran, but she didn't really mind as she drew another card for her hand. The school-girl would cheer on for her friend, and her tone would become more bitter as she spoke more about him.} "Yeah Kazuo, there it is! You go and carry us to victory now! We don't have to do anything now that your pets are in our presence!" {Until it was clear that it wasn't Tea who was speaking anymore.} "It won't take long to crush this lowly insect, it's too busy jargoning about this supposed exposition we have no part in. The fact that this thing only exists to tell us all this useless bullshit and then pretend to be someone swatting at us like we're flies, as if he's not one himself. How annoying." {Since it is alive, Ebon Magician Curran's effect would prolong itself. On top of the damage Ogre might take from the Chimera, it would take a slight bit of damage from a dark presence.} Sana - Talk trash, chain effect activated due to Kazuo summoning a chimera. Negates Tea's actions. Ebon Magician Curran - Light Dark Damage due to it being alive. No attacking because of fear. 3 cards are currently in the graveyard.

Apollo quickly repositions himself to where he was somewhat away from Ogre, standing besides the terrified beasts and the worthless girl. He thrusts his hand back in an authoritative manner, commanding the two quietly so as no to be overheard by the enemy. "Tea, Nitch, do something that will strengthen my attack potential. I have a plan." He then clutches his fists calmly, focusing on maximizing the potency for a devastating attack. Rationale (Triples the damage of next magical attack)
"Would you look at that, we agree on something, Sana. That's right. You all can now stand back because I got this." [Octopus does little to avoid the attack, receiving the ice like it was but a flesh wound. Indeed, it was. Octopus had a strong resistance against ice, all of the crystals falling apart while the metal of its head bends in weird ways only to return to its original form. Although the metal that made it was incredibly strong and of no human origin, it was also easy to manipulate.] "But... I don't mind the aid, sometimes." [He says, continuing his words at Sana. After this, he raises his voice.] "You look pretty strong, I figured we would have problems with the pure physicality of it all, and so..." [Kazuo claps his hands together. At the same time, Octopus would use two tentacles to restrain his neck; two for each arm and then two for both legs.] "...I figured that the best way to deal with you would be by screwing with you from the inside." [Octopus' deep humming sound would quickly becoming a deep melody, as if born from the most obscure corner of the ocean, with such power, it can be heard clearly from the surface. However, while everyone around the being only hear the humming, Ogre specifically, in full contact of the being's strange metal, should easily hear it all within his body, thanks to the suckers tightly pressed around him. The direct aftermath of this effect would be to weaken his body further, at worst, and at best, completely drive him into a dozed off state, if not outright forcing him into a short slumber. Of course, this all is if the guy doesn't just break free before it all actually affects him, if it affects him at all.] Action: [Kazuo] - Stands behind Octopus, keeping his distance. [Deep Asphyxia Octopus] - Underworld Hold (No damage. Inflicts Debilitate on target. Being unable to break free forces target into Sleep for 1 turn; Mental ailment susceptibility is returned to normal if so.)
"You're welcome for the ego boost, Kazuo!" {Sana would wave over to Kazuo to speak in an extremely fake jovial tone, soon turning around to utter some curses at him. As she turns around, she would also find Apollo.} "Ah, Apollo, is that you? Wow, you're looking desperate and pathetic right about now. Didn't we both already tell you? Stay put. You're just being excessive. The pet has got it under control. Kazuo said he'd carry us, don't try to help. You won't anyway." {Since she has some pent up aggression from that one time when she first tried to stalk Kazuo, now has been decided to be the perfect time to let it out.} "Besides, I know that you're already thinking that this girl is worthless inside your reptile brain, so I'll just point out the many things that she could've done to help you as you sit down and think to yourself how much of a hypocrite you really are." "In my hand, there is: Magician's Unite. An astronomical buff on top of what you already have. How nice. Then, there's Secret Pass to the Treasures. With this, you could've automatically pierced through his defenses. Lovely. Finally, the Twin Swords of Flashing Light - Tryce. This would let you attack twice. Very wonderful indeed. How nice that the friendship girl carries all these beautiful cards." {The girl would flash her hand, revealing all the cards in their glory. She smiled at him and squinted just enough so that she could still glare at him even though her eyes looked to be closed.} "I could give all these things to you. But you know what? I don't want to. The fact that you thought ignoring me back there, long ago, would make you look cool. Those days are now over. It just proves how short-sighted you are, never thinking ahead. You'll never be able to achieve anything socially, mentally, and physically if you keep going like this, you know. I hope you'll teach your little prick of a sister about this so that she won't pick up on your stupidity in the future, but at this point you both might just be a lost cause." Sana - Talk trash. Negates Tea's Actions. 4 cards are now in the graveyard.

Adam and Eve lack the ability to buff Apollo as he suggested, but they move in front of him to prepare to unleash their debuffs against Ogre. They wait patiently for a signal from the human. Well, they would just wait patiently, but the human called Tea is acting strange. Eve rears up on her back legs and stares down at the girl. The tan beast leans forward to give Tea a good sniff and stare to make sure she’s alright. Action: Wait

Now is Neesh’s time to assist Apollo. Adam roars, the initial surprise leaving his target more vulnerable. Eve has little to offer besides backup fire with her ice. This isn’t a big move, but it’s taking the lead to help Apollo’s next strike. Action: Adam: War Cry (reduce atk/def) Eve: Bufudyne (High ice x1)
[Octopus's body tenses up the moment the electricity makes contact, but nothing more happens beyond that, except that because of the tension, the Chimera lets Ogre go right away. One thing was clear enough, Octopus was neutral to electric damage.] "The skin color... I see now, no amount of versatility will really work unless we force your hand. Still, no amount of skin color change will protect your mind." [Kazuo doesn't even try to conceal his smile anymore, enjoying himself way more than before. He pulls out his revolver and aims it at Ogre while Octopus recovers enough to prepare a move as well. "Too bad I can't use any fire here" he thinks.] "I'll test some stuff out." [Kazuo would shoot it three times, aiming directly at the head, specifically around the eyes with the hopes of screwing with the guy there. In the end, he would have but two bullets left. Soon after, Octopus' body would shift around, becoming some kind of liquid while still retaining its general form.] "Hey, jackass! Tell me about your species, why don't you?" [The moment Ogre opens his mouth, then Octopus would immediately "melt" away and rush directly into his mouth, becoming almost exactly like water and direct itself towards his brain, or whatever kind of organ served as it. Once there, it would make sure the being could not use magic attacks while also generating a very painful headache. All in all, it wouldn't be a nice experience at all to have so much liquid inside one body.] Action: [Kazuo] - Schüt :gun: (Light Gun damage x3 at Ogre) [Deep Asphyxia Octopus] - Reaching Shadow (Medium Psychokinesis damage x2. 1 per turn. Inflicts "Forget" while it remains.)

Apollo sighs at this turn out, taking a step forward in anticipation. "Almost like you predicted my attack. Nevertheless, it will deal with you just the same. Let's finish this!" In his mind, Apollo would invision a celestial kanine walking beside him. Focusing on the strength inherited, Apollo dramatically holds out his right hand with its palm facing the ground towards Ogre, an ocean would rise facing Ogre with the space encompasing the & friends parted by Apollo. He looks at Ogre with an intense stare, obscuring any real emotion. "Shiranui." Apollo then bends his right knee forward and takes a big step with his left foot, curling his left hand in front of him as if petting something. "Ice Age." With only a brief moment of delay, the ocean would come rushing into Ogre before forming into giant pillars of ice which would crash into him instead, either impaling him or crushing him under their weight in a velocity and coverage that it would be more difficult to react to. Ice Age (Severe ice damage to 1 foe. Smirk: pierce)
{The faint scent of perfume would come from Tea as Eve would sniff her.} "What happened?...Again? Did this happen again?" {Tea would be a bit confused, almost forgetting that there was still a fight in the mix.} "Welp, nothing to it I suppose, time to draw!" {She uses her duel disk to draw a card, increasing the number she has in her hand.} Tea - Draws card. 6 cards are now in hand. 4 cards are in the graveyard.

*Ogre smirks at Kazuo's taunt* Ha. Wouldn't you- *Falling for the taunt, Ogre would start coughing and splutering as the melted octopus enters his mouth, blocking his natural abilities and cutting off his passive. At the same time, the barrage of ice from Apollo and Neesh comes through, pinning him under crystals of ice. Unable to switch his element and burn through the ice, the Ogre remains helpless to act other than truggling to lift the frozen wait across his body.* Enemy Action Trapped (Unable to move)

"Asshole, I get now why they had someone as strong as you all chained up. You're an idiot, and no matter how many strange powers you have, if your mind can't keep up, then you're just a weakling." [Kazuo puts his revolver back into his pocket and closes his demonic right arm into a fist, pointing it in the general direction of Ogre. Kazuo was trying really hard not to laugh, as the joy he was feeling from the battle was getting to him.] "I know you aren't human, so whatever you do and whatever happens to you is none of my business. Sadly, you had to be dumb as a rock and try to kill others in front of me. This is pure self-defense." [Kazuo can't stop the laugh now as Ogre may feel, the substance inside his body acts up.] "Before, you were asking if you were real, and I didn't answer. Figured you had the smarts to figure it out... but now that I know you don't, I'll make it a quick one." [Kazuo slowly, harshly opens his right hand, fully lost in his own following move.] "That's right. You WERE real." [Kazuo fully opens the demonic hand as Octopus suddenly forces its own body into the metallic self, returning too to its original size, with all the suckers, edges, spikes and harsh beak it had; beyond that, it was even forcing itself to become even bigger than before. All this while still within the body of Ogre; this was Octopus' follow up to the shrinking capacity of Reaching Shadow, Surging Burial.] Action: [Kazuo] - Nothing.

How utterly repulsive. Fascinating way to eliminate an opponent however. I do wonder if I could replicate it in someway. *It's unknown how long he's been sitting up there, however, sitting in a small alcove up above, sits a man hidden in shadows. He speaks in a strange man, shifting between slow and impactful words and fast, almost uncomprehensable speech.* But to think Tharbrosius would have fallen so quickly. You people are either quite skilled or he was simply severly weaken by his captivity that even simple imbeciles like yourself could topple him. Not that he was very intellegent to begin with. I believe a toddler could out think him. Coo coo coo.

Adam and Eve have little time to celebrate upon rejoining into Neesh. They glare and point at where the voice is coming from. “Who are you? Were you the one who made all the noisy machines that woke us up?” Neesh doesn’t like his attitude. He seems like an egotistical human if he is a human and Neesh hates those humans the most. That’s not even the worst part. The worst part is Neesh can’t reach him! How annoying.
"Definitely more skilled than your sorry excuse for a villain." [Kazuo's eyes remain sharp, and he is still enjoying himself a bit too much. Soon enough, the high of battle should subside.] "Now open the door and blow up this facility once we're out. Now that this guy is dead, there's no reason for it to be here, right?"

Oh, on the contrary. If anything, all his death did was free up more room and power for weapon and resource manufacturing. If anything, I should be thanking you. He was a simple thief, but his special power was so interesting, I just had to research it but he did start cluttering up the facility. I had to keep it cold or he'd throw a hissy fit and break out. If anything, he made up for his lack of wit with physical brawn. *The man hummed.* Ah. Where are my manners> As you believed, I am the head of this facility. My name is Amadeus Saranor. It's a pleasure to meet those who have provided me with such solid data. An Octopus that can dissolve itself into liquid. A being that can accuratly scan the strengths and weaknesses of it's foes. One named after a sun god that can manipulate earth and ice to their will. And that's just from this one showing. The rest of your traipsing through my facility has allowed me to see so much more of your capabilities. It has truly been enlightening. I can see why Gracidea and Handasma had such issues combating the people in this world. You are quite unique. *The man laughs mockingly.*
"Graciea and Handasma...?" [He didn't really get what all this was about anymore, but he was glad all he showed was Octopus. Kazuo shakes his head and tries to piece all together.] "You know anything about a... butterfly alien chick that can control vegetation, Amadeus?"

Ah, so you do remember her. Indeed, Gracidea was fuming about that but... it did get me curious about you people. I just had to see for myself what you could do. I'm not disapointed either. *The man claps slowly.* You are indeed worth my time. However, do you truly believe I will accept your demands? Open the door and blow up my facility? Do you plan on granting me something in return? I still have many uses for this place, after all.
"Of course, that girl. The one I called trash. It's funny, the revolver I brought with myself this time around? I got it that day." [Kazuo rubs the back of his head, considering his options. He still had this Awakening Gauntlet activated and so there may be something he could do. He knew he could Pierce through anything if he used Senzai Spark in its material form. But would it work against this door? He would then look at Octopus] "I had forgotten her name... Gracidea. You know, she was really cute. Make sure you say hi to her for me. I can give her my number too if that's what she wants." [Kazuo holds his right forearm and presses the palm of his hand against the floor, creating a high concentration of electricity that should easily create a crater around it.] "Senzai Spark...!" [He would then rush towards the door and aim to go right through the middle in order to open up a hole.] "Rulebreaker!" [He was really hoping this attack, which has the "Pierce" characteristic would work. Of course, this doesn't work against Reflect, but it should be able to damage anything that wasn't that. If he succeeds in opening a hole, then he would use Octopus' monstrous strength to fit its tentacles through the hole and completely ruin it, creating a way through.]

"Yeah, i've got something in return." Apollo places his hands in his pockets, walking backwards to where he was besides Kazuo. "Kazuo, i'll let you take the lead once more.

*The man sighed and Kazuo tries and fails to tears a hole through the door.* And here I was starting to think you were a fellow intellectual. How unfortunate. *A sound of feathers brushing against metal can be heard as Amadeus moves, slowly emerging from the darkness above, revealing him to look like a large Raven man wearing a long white coat, black wing emerging from his back and black, claw like hands rubbing the top of his beak as if he were rubbing the bridge of his nose in disapointment.* This room was created to hold someone with more physical than all of you combined and I am not talking about that pathetic thief. You're Octopus seems to be more based on Psychological attacks more than physical brawn, though it does seem decently strong. Still not enough however. What will you do now, I wonder?
Neesh
#212

Neesh follows Apollo, silent and thinking very hard about what to do. Neesh has little to offer... do they? Maybe? They stare at the closed door for a while then turn to speak to this Amadeus person. “Are the humans and us stuck here unless we give you something? We might have something but we’re not sure if we trust you.” Neesh’s ears are pointed forward to listen to an anticipated reply. They’re curious. Anxious. Excited. All emotions from a budding plan.
"Of course, I know the options you are presenting, and knew that this may not work. However, nothing is lost by trying anyways. After all, what kind of fool would look at you and say "Yes, I will 100% agree to everything you say blindly". Not me." [Kazuo allows the electricity to go away, but retaining the Awakening Gauntlet.] "Octopus is not my strongest Chimera. I have two more tiers of power that nothing could stop. But at the same time, why should I show you any of those? So you can take them? I don't think so." [Even if he could copy any of them, Kazuo knows everything about them, especially their weaknesses and weak points.] "But I'm curious now. What do you want?"

I am aware that you have more from the reports filed from Gracidea and Handasma. What was it? A bird and a turtle? And constructs that even severly weakened the usage of Galio's Command. Quite a rare ability. *Amadeus shrugs, seeming to smirk, though it's hard to tell since he's a bird.* As for what I want, I think it would be obvious. A spirit summoner. Two beasts that can combine into one. A gamer who can summon cards and effects into reality. A powerful magus. And a man who can summon powerful beings cased in metal. I could learn so much from each and every one of you that would help in my research and development of new technology. So many interesting subjects trapped like rats in a cage you have no hope of escaping. I already have what I want. You provided it quite handily and I must thank you for that. *Amadeus laughs mockingly.*

Apollo relaxs a bit, restoring his energy. He then kneels down and places a hand on Neesh's head as if guarding him. "And what if we don't comply?"

"Tell me again, what is stopping me from killing you right here and now? If you have no intention of letting us go, and you already have what you came for, what do we gain by you still breathing?" [Kazuo asks almost too casually. It's true, Kazuo had summoned up to his Inferno Chimera in the past, which is the result of combining two of his normal Chimera. However, there was one level higher that allowed him to fuse two Inferno Chimera into a complete being. He rubs the back of his head, knowing he still had some kind of secret weapon, in case he ever needed to use it and catch them by surprise.]

Neesh puffs out their cheeks and flattens their ears. “You put us in a cage? We hate cages. Let us out. There’s not even any plants here.” They don’t have much to back up their words with but looking mad is enough for now. Apollo’s hand on their head helps them calm down enough to think things through better. They sigh and reluctantly speak again. “We can stay but not forever. We are patient but we are still wild.”
"Hmmmm...nope. I don't think I want to be your friend right now, sorry!" {The girl would refresh her duel disk, making the cards that were previously on the field and/or in the graveyard go back into her deck.

"What do we gain from you still breathing?" What are you? A bandit? *Amadeus shakes his head* Well, if that's your question, then nothing at all. You'll still be trapped in here and my research can happen through automation for my replacement. All that would really happen is that you'd have to suffer with more rotting meat than you've already created. Though, I suppose you'd at least have some meat for... let's see, theres six of you and I'm quite skinny so... I'd three days if you correctly ration it out. *Amadeus chuckles, shaking his head.* Of course, you'd have to kill me first. And I wouldn't exactly make it easy.
“In here? But the message of friendship can’t be spread far if I won’t be able to leave. Maybe if you expanded the place we could-“ {Tea’s mind would try to wrap itself around whatever this weird scientist was saying to them. Though it only took her a few seconds of trying to get back what was lost from not listening to the long-winded conversation, she still felt proud of herself for solving the reason why they were still standing here and not outside.} “Oh, I get it now! You want us to stay here forever? Well, why didn’t you say so the first time?” {She’d say in her usual spunky tone before it reverts to the one Kazuo would know and love. As Sana came back, Neesh would be able to detect the scent of perfume coming from the girl.} “Because the answer’s no. Sorry, I’d rather be cooped up in my own home rather than with some disgusting cretin who’s only character trait is being a smart Alec that loves to hear themselves talk, because I have better things to do than give you your bits of birdseed while you pretend your little school project is going somewhere. Kazuo, whether you try to take us with you or not, this bitch standing in our way better die in the next 5 seconds or else we’ll die of boredom instead, since I know for a fact we’d have to waste time sitting through whatever mating call he’ll pull out of his ass and try in vain to kill us.”
"..." [Kazuo's expression remains generally stoic as the guy says his piece. He considers his options, and really, there aren't any. He can still try what he was planning and taking the life of this creature that's in the way wouldn't be much of a problem, especially as soon as he forces out his entire arsenal. A vortex appears on the floor right next to Kazuo, and a two-handed sword appears. First comes the hilt, which he grabs, pulling out the rest of the sword, pressing it against the floor, vortex going away.] "Would you look at that, you serve more of a purpose dead then." [Kazuo's expression quickly becomes darker. Sharp eyes, a strange glint in his eyes. Talking was pointless to him now.]

Tea’s acting strange again, the birdman’s being annoying, and they’ll just all die if they kill the birdman. Neesh frowns and sits down on the floor. That’s bad. They consider their options. Killing is off the table but they can probably create a way out if they wait long enough. They’d need more than three days for that. Actually, it would be more if they ate the humans, and they can go some time without food... but they don’t want it to come to that. “Hm. Okay.” Neesh shrugs. They’ve made up their mind. They’ll just kill the birdman AFTER they get their escape plan. They just hope the experiments aren’t bad.
"hhhhhhmmmmm, let me try something." she say as her form drops away, revealing a quite disheveled Lolbit model animatronic, her right arm is just a bare endoskeleton, but both hands have sharp claws, as well as he left eye being pink instead of yellow.

"Give it a rest, guys. If we rush at it without a plan, we're no different than that brute that just got destroyed. Or the one Elian seemed so afraid of." Apollo sighs, attempting to appear defeated as he sits down against the door with his legs crossed. "For one, if the enemy simply chooses to make their escape, there's nothing we can do to corner them. Besides, kazuo, there is something we can do with them alive." He would tap his fingers across the floor a few times, sending out dark energy towards any gap in the wall. Considering the door dropped down, there would at least have to be a gap in the sides for it to move. He would then stand up, directing his gaze towards the Raven's eyes with his own pulsating a blood red energy. This would be an attempt to read her recent memories for any path of escape. Although, this would only serve as a distraction as Apollo would have his darkness blindly trace the path he took to get here backwards, only changing the route to where it goes up the stairs twice and then sporadically jumps at rhe control panel.
Neesh
#226

Neesh tunes out whatever the humans are doing. They’re more interested in searching the room. A quick sniff proves that strategy difficult as Ogre’s grisly demise has left his scent flooding the room. What was Ogre anyway? Neesh approaches the remains to examine them. After finding a relatively small chunk and giving it another sniff, they put it in their mouth to taste it. If their former foe was an organism with genetic code, they’ll know from this. The possibility of him being magical is still out there.
"Your fate doesn't change anyways. Octopus!" [Now that Octopus' size was larger than originally, albeit for a limited time, it would have an easier time doing what he was about to do: use its tentacles to grab on to Amadeus. The tentacles can extend up to three times their normal size and are strong enough to hold anyone in place without much of a struggle thanks to the many suckers that make up the underside of each extremity. At the same time, Kazuo would have two vortexes appear at the same time, dropping two massive blades that no human being would ever be able to lift; only a giant could ever hope to use them.] "Where was he to begin with...? Is there something up above...? If he isn't this worried, then there has to be some kind of way out already..." [He mutters.]

*The Raven deftly dodges out of the way of the first few tendrils. However, before the attacks can become to overpowering, something blocks the tentacles with even strength. The main body would be cloaked by the shadows but what was locking Octopus' attack in place would look very familiar to all in the room. The colouring was greyscale and almost seemed like static was coating the body parts, though on closer in spection it was a simple unmoving design that invoked an optical illusion of moving static. However, they were tendrils the exact same as the Octopus' own. Amadeus pauses* Hmm. You know, now I think on it, you all do make a compelling argument. It is unsporting of me to hold you here without a chance to escape. In that case, I have the perfect way we can both leave here happily. A simple wager. *From the shadows above, four sets of glowing grey eyes appear. One set larger. One set smaller. One set knightly. One set rebellious.* See, you've all given me such good data that I simply couldn't resist. They may be hastily made, but I believe a field test is in order. A few battles as a send off. And I'll even make my facility vanish from your domain. You win and you'll never see or hear from this place ever again and you can all go free. If you lose... well, I always enjoy bodies of the exceptional and it's not like you'll be using them anyway. What do you say?

Neesh’s eyes flash blue. Yep, Ogre was a living thing. He did exist. Neesh wishes they could have confirmed that for him. They turn around when the raven man mentions a way to escape. Their ears perk up. “We don’t want to stay here so we will fight.” Neesh states that bluntly then splits into their two beasts again. The dup get into position sluggishly, as if they had just woken up, but growl to get themselves focused.

[Kazuo had expected something like this, but not quite like this, if it made any sense. He wasn't exactly sure of what he was dealing with, but he would have to figure it out as he goes along. Without wasting more time, he keeps going. This time around, he may have to pull out the big boys. As such, he allows a spectral being to go out of his body.] "I need you here, Doppel!" [He would call Doppel to his side and immediately repeat the same move as before, about releasing different blades. However, this time it was a total of 8 vortexes that came along. Thanks to Doppel, the amount of material he can bring out is doubled. All of them were too long to be used normally, even if not particularly heavy.] "Is this clear enough?"

"Everyone's saying bad things, but I don't think this'll be too hard!

By now, they were supposed to be leaving, but more excursions couldn't hurt anyone, right? After all, it's good to get all the experience you can as a duelist.} "I'm sure many people are asleep by now, and I'd love to get to that too! Not here though." {The friendly girl would pick 5 cards from her hand, getting ready alongside everyone else to do this last thing before being able to leave.}

Apollo pumps a fist in front of them, stepping in front of Neesh and Kazuo. "No choice but to do it to it? Makes no difference to me, I'll stand by my friends no matter what you throw at us." Apollo breathes steadily in anticipation, calming his nerves as a steeled resolve permanently bolsters his cooperative ability by a slight amount. "Neesh, be ready to use one of your fire attacks when I signal you." He nods his head, working out how he's going to attack in his head.

Ah. Perfect. Now then, shall we get this show on the road? Let's see if I recall the names. Izanagi. Arsene. Deep Asphixiation Octopus. White Magician Pikaru. Kanzeon. *At his call, the copies would descend, grayscale and staticy with eyes dead, lifeless and glowing grey. False Octopus would begin it's assault by pushing the real deal into the floor while False Izanagi flies in towards Neesh, swinging hard at Adam with it's blade. False Arsene and False Pikaru would hang back, one sending a wave at the party and the other buffing itself. False Kanzeon meanwhile scans the party, transmitting it's data to it's allies.* I may have also taken some creative liberties. Do tell me if they work or not. I'm open to criticizm. *Amadeus smirks as he retakes his spot on his perch, overlooking the fight from high above.* Enemy Actions False Deep Asphxia Octopus: Crushing Force (Moderate Physical damage to one foe.

[Octopus is forced into the ground, its body getting all jiggly upon impact, as if its body was but jello. Regardless, some dents would appear around its body, thinking what to do about this. Of course, its size was bigger now, and any of its attack would do far more. The problem, however, was in figuring out what to do now. Kazuo himself was considering what to do.] "I got something, but you'll hate it." [Octopus lets out a loud hum as it chooses to ignore its Doppelganger and waves all of its tentacles around, creating a strange, hypnotizing visual effect before releasing focused energy of strange colors all over the area, specifically the enemies. It wouldn't really exist past energy, but the impact would feel like a very awful and nasty pink ink, making their body heavier while also more vulnerable; Raging Whirlpool.] "Do Re Might!"

"Alright, Neesh, hold on!" True to his word, Apollo would swiftly carry through with a potent attack by reaching his hand out and summoning a jet of water which would loop around the entire area encompassing the enemies, forming a ring of sorts. "Now! Turn up the heat!" Should Adam somehow carry through whilst being attacked, the ring would erupt in a burst of steam which would both obscure the enemies' vision and burn their skin, permeating throughout most of the field let not affecting any allies except Jessica because she gave us different three enemies to deal with while not contributing anything herself. This would be due to the party members having Apollo's blessing or something and therefore being immune to his attacks. Assuming this somehow fails, the attack would simply be Malaquadyne.

*Eve's attack would be deflected by the false Izanagi. However, the mass assault of combonation attacks would deal heavy damage to all enemies. However, the fake Pikaru would prove more resiliant than it's real counterpart, sticking around after one hit. It gathers it's strength and bathes it's allies in a healing light. Kanzeon moves next, letting out a mysterious aura. All of it's allies fade into static that makes it hard to concentrate on them. All of them except Izanagi that is. From above, a rain of bullets falls above as Arsene begins it's assault. The Octopus meanwhile copies the real deal, sending out the same hypnotic waves as if trying to say "anything you can do, I can do better." Finally, Izanagi channels electricity in it's sword and swings it, sending a wave of electrical energy along the ground at everyone.* Enemy Actions False Pikaru: Mediarahan (Full Heal to all allies) False Kanzeon: On Stage (Grants Taunt to one ally, forcing all single target attacks to target them Target: False Izanagi) False Arsene: Broadshot (Heavy Gun attack to all foes) False Deep Asphyxia Octopus: Raging Whirlpool (Heavy Psy to all. -1 Agility + higher susceptibility to Ailments.) False Izanagi: Raijinzan (Heavy Electric damage to all foes)

(edited by Sam)
The only reason the attack did as little as it did was due to Izanagi being resistant to the electric attack, considering her own personal weakness to electricity, but it still hurt a ton, yelling: "Shit!" in response to the pain. But, because she's smart and strategic, decides to hit false Izanagi with another garudyne.
[There is nothing that could protect Kazuo to Psy damage, pushing him back and forcing him against the wall. Luckily, his Agility could not go any lower regardless. Soon comes "Farsene's" attack and "Fizanagi's". The impact of the first would do nothing to him but raise his Vibration Field's Level, and Kazuo would use his Awakening Gauntlet to tank the incoming electricity, reflecting it back at Fizanagi for what it was worth. Something hits him at that very moment. Kazuo would cover his mouth as he spoke.] "Everyone! If you're going to speak keep your mouths covered! If that Faker can copy all of Octopus' moves, then it can no doubt become a liquid and destroy you from the inside." [Kazuo would have to keep his mouth shut for as long as possible. He couldn't allow himself to die. He would turn towards his own Octopus, whose shape had already started to shift.] "So his size is going to return to normal. I still got things to do, almost done as well." He thinks. [Kazuo would point his index finger at Fizanagi knowing he could only strike him now, and so Doppel would follow, copying the move with no objection. A vortex would appear and then another, both releasing a locomotive that would ram against the Fake Persona. Following in on this, Octopus would force its tentacles upon Fizanagi, making sure they get to it before the projectiles do, making use of its suckers and great strength. Because of its current size as well, it should be way easier for it to accomplish this.] "I need to get rid of Kanzeon quick, in a single move. I wonder..." He thinks yet again. Action: [Kazuo] - High-speed Alloy: Crash (Heavy Gun to one.) x2 (Doppel Effect) [Target: Fake Izanagi] [Deep Asphyxia Octopus] - Underworld Hold (No damage. Debilitate + Sleep to one.)

{Since she was still a bit slow on the draw, Tea still had to live with her teammates getting hit by Izanagi, which is kind of unfriendly of her. However, nothing is really stopping her from cutting her losses and taking this chance to go on the advantage.} "Nice job enemies, you're really doing great! But now I reveal my face-down card! The Unhappy Maiden! The Unhappy Maiden shall make you stop fighting!" {From the front card that was flipped right-side up, the Unhappy Maiden is now in play. As always, it is a set card with a flip effect, meaning it must die to work it's magic. But at least now every other attack the enemy makes will be nullified thanks to the Unhappy Maiden, who makes all attacking opponents feel something in themselves to stop attacking.} "And now, I activate my trap card, Riryoku Field! With this, that taunt will be no more...I'm sorry, I forgot the target's name, uh...Riryoku Field, GO!" {The third card in the back would flip up to reveal itself as a counter trap card. A blue lightning bolt will hit the false Izanagi, but it's not meant to do damage to that specific target. After it is hit, every spell or buff it has accumulated would instantly go away, meaning it lost both it's taunt and defense increase. Then, the lightning bolt would spread to the ones that gave them the buffs, mainly the False Pikeru and False Kanzeon.} "Oh, and would you look at this, I still have some more to do! From my hand, the card that I drew shall now be on the field! I summon Ebon Magician Curran in attack position! Ebon Magician Curran, go for your rival!" {Another monster card would be digitalized into existence, this one being a little girl similar to White Magician Pikeru, but with a dark aesthetic. She held a skip rope in her hand. As Ebon Magician Curran was deployed, the enemies on the other side would instantly suffer damage from a mysterious dark force, unless they nulled the type. Ebon Magician Curran would use her skip rope and enchant it with dark energy, using it as a whip to lash at False Pikeru.} Tea - Summons Ebon Magician Pikeru, and uses Riryoku Field to nullify the spells cast onto False Izanagi. Riryoku Field - Medium Electric Damage to False Kanzeon and False Pikeru. Ebon Magician Pikeru - Medium Dark Damage to all enemies. Heavy Dark Damage to False Pikeru. 2 cards are now in the graveyard.

The attacks, combined with damage from the earlier fight, are starting to take their toll on the beasts. The electric damage is enough to practically paralyze Eve. They nod to each other and Adam steps in front of Eve, rising up to stand on his back legs. Rather than attack, he bellows a War Cry to weaken the enemies. He clearly can’t take much more punishment so he needs to make his moves count. Action: Adam: War Cry (reduce atk/def of all enemies) Eve: Defend

"Neesh, I call that move Ring Of Fire! Now, stay still, i'm coming to your aid!" Apollo runs in front of Neesh, standing in front of him to absorb the brunt of all damage tossed his way.

*The effect of the grab takes effect, putting the Fake Izanagi asleep. However, despite being under fire, Pikaru is able to put their allies above themselves, sending an aurora like wave down on all allies. Izanagi springs awake, grabbing it's blade and cutting at the real Octopus' tentacles. From above, Arsene channels darkness in his fist before launching it outwards, firing it as dark orbs that detonate across the entire chamber. Using that as a cover, the fake Octopus would produce a dark grey liquid that would fire out towards all it's foes in the room, similar to how the real Octopus had used it's own liquid to assault Ogre's senses when it was first summoned by Kazuo. Above it all, Kanzeon looks over the battle field. It targets Kazuo in the back and gives a silent order. Arsene levels it's gun at Kazuo, takes aim and fires down on Kanzeon's targe.* Enemy Actions False Pikaru: Aurora Wave (Cures all status ailments and stat decreases to all allies) False Izanagi: Cross Slash (Heavy Physical Damage to one foe used twice.

Adam blocks most of the damage headed towards Eve, resulting in no damage to her with Apollo's help, but that's all he can do. The dark orbs tear through his body. He hits the ground and doesn't move. Slowly, dust floats off his disintegrating body. Eve half-limps, half-bounds away and hides behind Tea. Her body shifts into the smaller humanoid form of Neesh so less of her is exposed. The dog-eared humanoid is only standing due to leaning on Tea for support. "I'm sorry... I can't..." Neesh flattens her ears. She's trembling from the pain and the fear. Action: Adam: Dead Eve/Neesh: Time to use their friend as a meatshield
[In the quick events of it all happening, all of Octopus' tentacles are cut clean, separating themselves out of the Chimera's, falling to the floor below and making the remaining head with a beak hidden under remain static while the tentacles thrash around. Luckily, Octopus' nulls Dark magic, just as Kazuo's body fights against it and his Awakening Gauntlet ignores it. The following assault of Psychokinesis is resisted by the Chimera, but makes Kazuo lose his focus for long enough so Farsene's One-Shot Kill is used, Piercing right through the young man's body before he can react, leaving a terrible open wound on his torso, now bleeding and leaving him in great pain. He presses his demonic gauntlet against the open wound just to stop the bleeding from getting any worse. He would need to hide this white shirt of his for a while.] "These guys are strong, no shit...! I need a plan... I think I have one..." [Kazuo does his best to maintain his breathing just fine, deciding it was time to call for more support. With his left, he would snap his fingers as red markings appear on his body, in the shape of feathers. The white aura around him becomes weaker, as the Vibration Field suddenly loses a level, the vibrations being released up in the air as the markings leave him as well.] "I call upon your name, Bearer of the Mark.... manifestation of Rage, rise...to the skies above...!" [One of the heavy blades is used, as well as two of the long ones and the one normal blade. All these materials combined quickly shift around, the metal becoming one and the vibrations resonating with it all. A massive bird is created, with no eyes, large wings, and a large tail. Every single part of its body could cut down all without even trying.] "2.43 – Deep Doremi Hawk!!" [The bird lets out an ear piercing screech once its shape is reveal, taking off above, closer to hovering than truly flying. After it shows up and takes a position of advantage, it lets out yet another scream and releases Light all over the enemies, radiating in such a way that its own shape becomes impossible to perceive, regardless of anyone hit; that is the power of its "EMP Blast". That is not all however, as Octopus's eye sockets light up with a strange energy that is then showered all over the enemies, trying to inflict Daze on all with its "Eye of Calm", which would make anyone very sluggish to avoid or act afterwards. In this one moment, all 8 of Octopus' tentacles come to life and move around the arena like they had a mind of their own. And they do. The move around easily, can leap and slam against enemies without effort. They focus on Izanagi, Arsene, Kanzeon and then Pikaru. However, one of the tentacles goes on to strike at Kazuo, knocking him off his feet. He has a very confused look on his face indeed.] Action: [Kazuo] - Deep Transmigration (Summon Ally.) [Deep Asphyxia Octopus] - Eye of Calm (Daze on all. Daze lasts 1 turn and completely floors Agility while it does last.)

The dark orbs would rejuvenate Apollo, filling him with a sense of strength. However, his jaw drops upon seeing the effect they had on one of the aspects of Neesh. He desperately reaches out to them, trying in vain to keep them alive. "No! Why did you...?" He then looks back at Farsene with a violent anger, curling his hands around the air intensely. He then elevates himself into the air with a spire of water, then manifesting a huge chunk of ice by spraying water in one direction and freezing it. "Ice age." The chunk would bullet straight at Fake Arsene, exploding into a dust of sharp fragments which would impale the target or crush them under the sheer magnitude of them. Ice Age (severe ice damage to 1 foe, pierce if smirking. target: Farsene.
{As the next player phase rolls around the corner, Ebon Magician Curran is able to go through with her magic, using the Maegigaon from Arsene as a conduit to send out an even stronger wave of dark energy than what is normally possible. But when she is hit with the Psychokinesis attack, the magician is defenseless and digitalizes out of existence, unable to do anything else.} "This is so much to keep track of! You know what, I think I'll just set a card down and-" {Three cards are now in the duelist's backrow, and she let out a sigh of relief. Though that would normally be the end of her turn, with absolutely nothing to protect her, she finds her summoning phase interrupted mid-session by Neesh who looks to be worse for wear. At the sight of her friend being sad, Tea would feel something inside her.} "I summon The Unhappy Girl! Unhappy Girl, attack...one of them!" {The Unhappy Girl did as she was told, in a very depressed manner. A tear was shed, and it fell onto the ground, before it turned into an array of rose thorns acting as spikes. They'd attempt to prick at the fake Arsene, since that was the first one seen. If the fake Arsene was hit by the thorns, he would feel remorseful whether he was able to or not, making it impossible for him to attack Tea nor defend from Tea's attacks for this following turn.} "Neesh, what happened? Were they being unfriendly?" Tea - Summon The Unhappy Girl. Sets a card down. Inquiry - Target Neesh. Ebon Magician Curran - Repel Dark/Heavy Dark Damage to all. Then dies. The Unhappy Girl - Miniscule Almighty Damage to Arsene. Arsene feels sad and cannot attack or defend against Tea. 3 cards are now in the graveyard.

*Arsene is hit by the Unhappy Girl's thorns. The moment pause of sudden sadness is stopped by sudden panic as he tries to dodge Apollo's ice at the last second, causing it to shred his left side. Meanwhile, Curran's attack heavily damages Pikaru, causing it to plummet to the ground, it's levitate functions destroyed, but the fake itself is still barely funtional. As Kazuo summons Deep Doremi Hawk, Amadeus leans forwards in interest.* Oh. You weren't lying. There are more of them. Hmm. I wonder if I up the ante, will you summon more for me to analyse? Kanzeon, if you would. Start initiating the targeting protocals. Whttle down their number. There's a good girl. *Amadeus snaps his fingers causing Kanzeon to straighten up. It looks around the room for a suitable target, eyeing Apollo hovering in the air after his powerful attack. It's sattelite like head shines a beam of light on him. At once, the other replicas react. Arsene, still wobbly after being struck by such a powerful attack, channels it's strength into the others Octopus lashes out first, firing out tentacles in all directions to hold Apollo in place, either with the tentacles or the sudden wave of tiredness that washes over him. Izanagi and Pikaru go to work next. Izanagi charges his sword with electricity and, from it's place on the ground, Pikaru channels the last of it's strength into it's staff, before both fire beams of elemental energy at Apollo. However, due to using the last of it's power, False Pikaru shuts down.* Enemy Action Fake Kanzeon: Spotlight (Inflicts Taunt on one foe, forcing all allies to target them with single target attacks.

"One of us died. I'm all that's left." Neesh hugs Tea and peeks out at what's going on. Those constructs are all attacking Apollo. Amadeus is smart, coordinating attacks with his well-oiled machine. She and the corpse that used to be Adam are similar to the foes in that way. Neesh shudders and tries to keep her breathing steady. She can still feel her counterpart's pain. It's like the pain of losing a limb. "There's four enemies now. I don't like the one that looks like a human dish thingy. I think it's in charge of the others."

Apollo would already outmatch the enemy in most physical departments, but the effect of both fog breath and war cry would render the enemies' attempts to strike him down futile, even in spite of the single stage boost to attack they received. Secondly, he would backflip off the water spire so he would be both an obscured moving target who was all around harder to take down in the first place. Needless to say, if any attacks did hit they would not strike true enough to decapitate the young fellow. And despite not connecting, He would land right beside Kazuo, tensely speaking as he pulls out a surgical mask which he had cause of coronavirus and wears it. "Right. Kazuo, I see you're injured. Focus on protecting yourself, i'll handle this fight." He would then move his hands around like an interpretive dance to represent a rushing rapid, acting kinda like a waterbender from Avatar. Just so, a rapid would pour out over the group of enemies', corroding them like boulders being broken into tiny sentiment, slowly whittling away the entire mass bit by bit. Malaquadyne
[Kazuo takes a sigh of relief, knowing he was safe and that at least one of the enemies was now gone. Never again, healslut.] "It doesn't matter how many of them you see, you cannot replicate them all. Especially the strongest one." He thinks. [It's fortunate they are not targeting him just yet, this works. Kazuo decides to point his index finger at Kanzeon, as a total of 12 different vortexes appear all around the being. Although they should've been 6, Doppel's help in doubling the numbers right before disappearing from sight, having used all its moves. Bye bye Doppel. From each vortex surrounding it, 12 different blades would be shot out, 10 of them of the overly long type, and 2 of the massive heavy type. Whether they completely destroy it or not even damage it, the materials would remain.] "I need to keep them all distracted, I can't just keep taking hits as strong as that...? As long as Apollo remains alive, I can probably sweep them all in a bit." He thinks, not feeling like it would be very smart to speak. He also didn't want to use up any extra energy. [After all of the tentacles do as they will, they force themselves back onto Octopus, who is looking rather weak, having to use its own energy to move all its extremities in such a way. He could still fight, but it certainly was feeling it now. Because of this, it had to rest for a moment. Not so Hawk who, now invisible for two more moments, rushed directly towards Fake Izanagi, not even letting out a screech to show where it was going, no sound revealed its position but the air itself being split apart. With its "High Pressure Impact", Hawk would try to crash and stab Fake Izanagi with its hardened beak, if not outright go right through if it was weak enough to be able to.] Action: [Kazuo] - Lawful Blades (Medium Physical to 1 x 12.)

This is an addendum to the prior update. Apollo manages to keep out of the grasp of the tentacles by barraging them with an onslaught of small rocks, keeping them at bay while he moves to get some distance between them, running to Kazuo's side. He would then say the same thing as he said in the prior update before getting blasted back by waves of elemental energy. He breathes heavily, clutching his arm in agony as he begins to feel a burning sensation from the light. He would then counter with Malaquadyne as before.
"Seems like everyone's trying to set up something big. That's completely fine by me, I am too! Since you said the human dish is a problem, I think I'll go for that right now." {Tea would draw another card from her deck. There were currently three cards in the backline and one Unhappy Girl that has went un-targeted. Tea has not been hit this entire round, so instead of drawing aggro, she'll just keep doing her thing.} "I set a card face down, and then attack with The Unhappy Girl! Hit the one in the backline!" {A card would be face down, appearing right next to her first monster card, unlike all her other cards that are in a backline. The Unhappy Girl would shed another tear for her opponents, growing another array of rose thorns. The myriad of pricks would make it's way towards Kanzeon, aiming to acupuncture it slightly in order for her effect to kick in as it is attacked, in hopes that it will at least get hit enough. Tea would face Neesh with a friendly gaze.} "Hey Neesh, are you a spellcaster?" {The girl would end her turn with only one simple inquiry.} Tea - Draws a card. Sets one card face down next to The Unhappy Girl. The Unhappy Girl - Miniscule Almighty Damage to Kanzeon. When hit, the opponent will feel sad, making it unable to do anything to Tea.

*Izanagi is slammed hard into the far wall by Hawk. Meanwhile, the attack on Kanzeon is blocked by Arsene, who steps (figuratively) in the way of Kazuo's attack, deflecting a number of the attacks, and absorbing the final four. With the exception of Kanzeon, who still watches calmly from above, the three front line foes seem somewhat weakened. Amadeus watches Apollo with dull eyes.* Some people are beyond logic and reason. *Kanzeon seems to ignore Tea's attack, instead growing staticy, alongside Izanagi and Arsene as Octopus becomes the centre of Attention. The Octopus in question strikes out randomly and indiscriminantly with it's tentacles. Cloaked in static, Arsene and Izanagi dart around, harder to see due to their shadowy cloak making them naturally fade away, they attempt to strike at the back lines of their foes.

“I-I can use magic, but I - ah!” Neesh suddenly lets go of Tea and dives down to avoid the strike. Scattered sparks cause her to convulse but she digs her nails into the ground to steady herself. She can’t see her attacker well. Only her hearing let her pinpoint the attack. Her body shifts to fur and is obscured by a burst of fog that covers the area around her and Tea. Action: Fog Breath (reduce atk and acc/evd of Tea, Eve, and Fake Izanagi. Obscures localized area)

Apollo's mind rushes, sifting through the various occurrences. His enemies obscured themselves, one remaining and attacking with a ferocity he can't respond to, but luckily none of the attacks hit him (I rolled for this). Right now, he has an opportunity, but he gives his friend Kazuo a look of concern. Deciding the best way to deal with the situation would be to eliminate the remaining enemies, he blasts the enemies with a wave of rocks and stones that were pointed so as to stab through them. Mamagnadyne (heavy earth damage to all)
[Octopus, being static as it is, received the tentacle strikes 4 times, Kazuo avoiding them by virtue of staying close to his own Chimera, all the while Hawk avoids it, being higher up and invisible, for one more moment that is. Then he feels something clash against his body, that pesky Fake Arsene once more. However, his body absorbs it thanks to Do Re Might still being in effect, raising to Level 3.] "Fine, I'll get you too!" [Kazuo still had to hold his wound, so he really had to push himself this time to properly channel all he was doing. The white aura around him would become violent, red markings similar to bug legs appear all over his body. The violent accumulation of power he had absorbed with Do Re Might is then absorbed all at once, but contained by the red markings as they leave him.] "Deep Transmigration! I call upon your name, Bearer of the Mark!" [10 of the long type blades are forced into the extreme vibrations that had been gathered. The metal melts and becomes one with the force. The body it generates is large, elongated and with a series of different sections making up its body. Out of each part, spikes on the back, and long legs come out.] "Manifestation of Blight, reward their senses!" [The head of the massive insect would grow two overly large pincers. The head had one cavity in the middle but no eyes. The creature makes no noise but the sound of its legs moving around, and the weird substance continuously leaking from its body dropping to the ground. Whatever it was, it was highly toxic.] "2.34 - Deep Scourge Centipede! Make them suffer!" [First, Octopus' eyes would light up again, releasing a bizarre energy that would inflict Daze upon everyone affected, lowering their Agility to the absolute maximum for a single turn, just so they cannot escape. Next up is Hawk, who, still up, beats its massive wings with force, creating powerful gusts of wind concentrated around the enemies only. The wind would almost feel as if getting cut again and again.] "If I can't see you, then I'll strike everywhere you might be!" [Finally, it's Centipede's turn. It pukes pieces of putrid flesh. At first, it's only just a bit of it, like it had recently eaten something, or someone, but quickly turning into a constant waterfall of rotten meat. It would be so much, so expansive, the entire chamber would become covered by this flesh, moving like it has a mind of its own, a true, living and breathing being independent of Centipede itself, merely born from it. All over the place, massive blisters would begin to grow and pop, allowing the pus to fall at random, doing nothing beyond being disgusting. Now, the battlefield should look closer to the insides of a creature horribly sick with a condition of nightmare. Kazuo would look up to his Chimera, his eyes shining.] "You're disgusting...!" Action: [Kazuo] - Deep Transmigration (Summon Ally) [Deep Asphyxia Octopus] - Eye of Calm (Daze to all.) [Deep Doremi Hawk] - Storm Caller (Medium Wind to all. Constant damage.) [Deep Scourge Centipede] - Expanding Blisters (Changes battlefield's surface. Raises Affliction susceptibility to all enemies for 2 turns.) Materials: Blades x 9 (6L/3H) Alloy x 4
{The Octopus would hit the Unhappy Girl a few times, but the girl is unphased unlike Curran, who died from one attack. There was a lot of pain suffered unto Tea's life points, but the Unhappy Girl treats this unfortunate circumstance the same way everyday. With depression. Tea on the other hand, is still excited and raring to go, the climax of the battle is an amazing thing.} "That's not enough to stop me! I activate my face down card, Riryoku Field! I hope you're ready for this once again! And by the way, Neesh?" {The Riryoku Field would take effect once again, making a blue lightning bolt strike once again. This time, the lightning bolt would hit the octopus, serving to make the Taunt useless for the second time in a row. As Kanzeon was the only one that gave this buff, it would only be given a minor thundershock.} {Tea would glance at Neesh, noticing that Izanami was planning to finish off her friend. As Tea faces Izanami, she pulls Neesh out of the way, and all her cards would now change it's field of view to behind her instead of forward. The card in question that would take this electric strike would be the one that is face down, next to The Unhappy Girl. A red-robed crystal seer.} "You don't have to answer that question. Crystal Seer is now taken out of battle, and I get to activate it's effect. And what do you know? I got everything I wanted. I summon The Unhappy Maiden in attack position." {Her tone would suddenly lose a bit of joy as she stared down the Fake Izanami. The Crystal Seer was sent to the graveyard, letting it's effect take action. Without even taking out the whole deck, Tea gets the card that she already wanted, and another card was sent to the bottom. A girl that looked similar to The Unhappy Girl appeared. The two girls would put a rose in their hand, looking at their opponent in hopes their death will be swift.} "These three equip spells are now in my backline. I activate Magician's Unite, Secret Pass to the Treasures, and Twin Swords of Flashing Light - Tryce simultaneously. You'll know what it does. Unhappy Girl, make this unfriendly person feel bad about themselves." {A light would shine above the two girls, yet only one of them is a transparent radiance while the other is a circular luminescence that imitates a small dome. The Unhappy Girl would be the one that is left with room to move, and the Unhappy Maiden would be in the dome. Above her head, the icon of two swords crossing to make an X would appear above the Unhappy Girl's head, there would be a gold glimmer in her saddened eyes that would almost make her look slightly happy.} {The Unhappy Girl shed a tear for the Fake Izanami, which would hit the floor. In the blink of an eye, a garden's worth of rose thorns would attempt to split into the enemy, the myriad of green spikes aiming to penetrate into Izanami with very strong force. They start to fade away after they would stab into each other in hopes of skewering the one opponent, and the gold glimmer in The Unhappy Girl's eyes would shine. Without delay, the same array of thorns would attempt to stab into the fake Izanami the exact same way as it would the first time.} Tea - Activates a chain link effect. Gives The Unhappy Girl the following effects: Infinite Concrentrate for as long as The Unhappy Maiden is alive. Defense buffs are ignored and element pierces any resistances. Attack twice. The Unhappy Girl - Severe Almighty Damage x2. Target: Izanami. All attacks will now be severe until The Unhappy Maiden dies. The Unhappy Maiden - Cannot attack for as long as it is in battle due to Magician's Unite.

*Combined, the earth and the wind combine to make a tempest of earthern shards that would tear through the battlefield in such away even Amadeus above would have to grip where he was sitting hard to avoid being swept in. Despite this and a rock shard breaking part of it's main satelite, Kanzeon remains still and calm. The same could not be said for Izanagi who is blasted into the vortex by almighty energy and torn to shreds by the tempest. Kanzeon remains uncaring of the situation. Light glimers, firing down at Kazuo, who Kanzeon determines is the biggest threat with three summons under his command now under his control. The fakes have to put into an effort to obey the Oracle's orders. The Octopus' tendrils fire out at Kazuo, trying to hold him down as Arsene blasts him with dark energy from afar.* Enemy Actions Fake Kanzeon: Spotlight (Inflicts Taunt on one foe, forcing all allies to target them with single target attacks.

Neesh/Eve realizes they aren’t being torn to shreds due to Tea’s play. She staggers to her paws and let out a noise that attempts to be a “thank you” but is muddled due to a lack of human vocal structures. Now onto the next topic: that cursed spotlight creature. She rears up and launches an icy spear at the faux Kanzeon. She doesn’t care if she’s noticed anymore. That creature needs to die. Action: Bufudyne (high ice x1, target is Kanzeon)

"Kch, I gotta say this sure has been a pain." Apollo ruminates as he steps forward, taking a look at all the enemies before shouting to Tea and Neesh "Alright, guys, it seems only the french angel guy and the octopus can really actually attack. Let's finish those two off!" Continuing his assault, Apollo would once more attack with a rush of water across the arena. Malaquadyne
"What now?" [Kazuo is grabbed by tentacles without any chance of getting away, his movements restrained as the sleep effect comes into him. However, he isn't being affected, as all of it is stopped by his Awakening Gauntlet, outright absorbing the effect and putting it into stock somewhere else. Then comes Arsene's darkness attack. He cannot avoid it, and it hurts like hell, making his open wound to feel even worse, wearing him down. His only saving grace is his innate resistance to Dark.] "T-This is fine...! I can take them...!" [Kazuo's breathing is heavy, but he decides that his position is still a good one as he has them all looking at him, and him only. He glares at Kanzeon, Centipede thrusting its legs deep into the flesh covering the arena now. It would react strangely, moving like an extension of its body, especially around Kanzeon. By using "Swelling Skin Trapper", the flesh in the arena would erupt and grab on to all the enemies, keeping them in place for the rest of the turn, but with the chance of keeping them into place up until Expanding Blisters passes by next turn regardless. Kazuo hopes the enemy focusing on himself would be enough to have this move work, as the first part of the combo. Regardless, the Chimera's would move on to their next moves.] "You watching closely?" [Hawk would let out a powerful screech as its image comes to view again, no longer invisible. The winds suddenly become far more powerful, incredibly so, enough for it to generate the energy of a storm around its immediate area. It would make a quick spin before rushing against Fake Octopus are incredible speeds, and with power enough to go through an entire building like it was paper with its "Eye of Jupiter". However, regardless of it working or not, Hawk would find itself against the floor, needing to rest for a bit after unleashing its most powerful attack. Finally, Octopus would focus its gaze upon Arsene, reching out to it with its tentacles, looking to restrain the Persona with its Underworld Hold.] "Don't think... I forgot about you." [Kazuo would charge electrical magic around his right hand, releasing it from the fingertip of his index finger. The energy that would come out would be like an electrical snake, coiling around the area before rushing directly towards Kanzeon, not needing to be directed to get anywhere. If it hits, the projectile will forcefully remain on the body, doing Minuscule electrical damage for 3 turns.] Action: [Kazuo] - Senzai Spark: Accusator (Light Electricity to one. Extra Minuscule damage x3 turns upon impact.) [Target: Kanzeon.] [Deep Asphyxia Octopus] - Underworld Hold (Debilitate + Sleep to one.) [Target: Arsene.] [Deep Doremi Hawk] - Eye of Jupiter (Severe Physical + Wind to one. Pierce through resistances. Needs 2 turn rest after.)

{Tea would've felt that a traditional clap is in order. But sadly she is holding a few cards in one of her hands, and dropping them just to clap for herself would be inconvenient even though nothing else is needed.} "Welp, that's been wrapped up! What's next?" {She'd say to everyone, not at all realizing the mess of what the battlefield has become. After all, it's hard to escape from the wonders of friendland. Even so, all the disgusting stuff that somehow got on here is shocking to say the least.} "Yeah Apollo, I'll do that!" {The girl would respond to him in such a way that was convincing. She'd originally try to use The Unhappy Girl's attack to finish off the two other enemies, but sadly something in her tells her to fight the thing that seems to be commanding the tide of battle.} "...Unhappy Girl, attack that thing Neesh is mad at." {At the last second, Tea changes her mind, suggesting the Unhappy Girl to shed a tear not for the persona or the octopus, but for the weird thing that's supporting the two instead. As always, the tear would lead to a tempest of a rose's thorns aiming to stab the adversary a million times, twice, and this is targeted at Kanzeon. If it didn't die or the attack was targeted to someone else, that target would either die or feel sadness making it unable to do anything to Tea.} Action: Tea - Draws card. The Unhappy Girl - Severe Almighty Damage x2. Target: Kanzeon. Original effect applies. The Unhappy Maiden - Taking part in Magician's Unite. 5 cards in the graveyard.

This is bad. This is very bad. She can tell this thing is prepping something big. Despite exhaustion creeping in, she sends out one last spear of ice at the fake Persona.

Apollo looks around, noticing that there was only one enemy left. He grins, wiping some sweat on his face. "This farce has gone on long enough. I won't allow you to live long enough to harm any more of my friends." He then summons a large battleaxe which is now his primary weapons. It would be inscribed with lunar runes similar to how Asami's staff had solar iconography. In a brash move, he runs full speed ahead towards Kanzeon like a speeding train. A few feet away from her, he would jump into the air, attacking forcefully with an overhead slash. Attack

OOC: Hey Jessica, I know this might seem like a dumb question, I just really need to know who paid for the wall. For research purposes.
[Kazuo merely stayed on the ground, just watching what just happened. Somehow, his tiredness was not even from the physical pain he was in anymore, but a mental one. Funny that, he was almost entirely sure that would be enough, until someone with enough powerful magic decided to show off and use a WEAPON instead of something that would be strong enough. And then SOMEONE HAD TO MAKE A WALL. Well, not that it matters.] "Octopus, Centipede, Hawk, you guys are great, but I somehow doubt we'll get out alive of this one with them." [He was annoyed, he very much was annoyed. How come the non-battle being have all this power? He didn't know, but he was at the ends of his wit. He would cover his wound with his right and pull from his pocket his revolver. That's it.] "I'm done." [Kazuo points the gun at Kanzeon and then presses his right against his revolver, at least for a moment. Enough to load the remaining two bullets with Electricity and Wind. Then Centipede would crawl towards his master, and touch the gun, adding in Nuclear magic to the mix. Then Octopus would quickly tap it with its own tentacle, adding in Psychokinesis. Hawk wouldn't do anything because it still had to rest, even if it just got his hard.] "Go fuck yourself."

Apollo would glance at Kazuo with a look of confusion, standing up and barely questioning him before deciding to look around the room once more. "Alright, you heard the man. Let's get a move on." Neesh would then be lifted into the air and slung over Apollo's right shoulder, the latter carrying the former carefully out towards the exit. which was formerly barred. "Oh, by the way, I know you said you'd let us go unharmed but I really wouldn't mind it if you harmed that one over there just a little bit." He points to Tea with his free hand as stops just short of the exit, patiently waiting for Kazuo. "Man, this whole thing left a sour taste in my mouth. Maybe we should actually go out and do something fun to clear our minds for once."

It shouldn't be dangerous... this process, anyways." [Kazuo would then close his eyes and take a deep breath, clapping his hands together.] "Inferno Transmutation!!" [But nothing at all happens. Kazuo is confused at first, looking at his own hands... until he realized that maybe, his Awakening Gauntlet was getting in the way of the 8th and 7th Imaginary Numbers. With this in mind, he lets his Awakening Gauntlet to disappear back into energy, his right hand becoming fully human once again.] "Sorry about that, this should work now! INFERNO TRANSMUTATION!!"

He forces them both together, their bodies violently joining together.] "Uncaring and unforgiving, one who's existence is a disease...!" [The pincers join the head of Octopus. Centipede's dozens of legs join up with the tentacles, making them all closer to spiked worms harshly cutting everything around them, enough thorns to make it look like a wall of roses. The head itself becomes buried under all the multitude of extremities, all of the same shape and the same size, but clearly capable of adapting to any surface. Slowly, a larger tentacle-like extremity would raise above them all, with strange markings at the tip.] "...reveal your true form, Avatar of Madness!!" [Something is continuously oozing out of the Inferno Chimera, expanding on the floor, only to return to its source, again and again, like breathing. The creature's near hundreds of tentacles would grow small, thick blades with openings on its tip, opening and closing without a single ounce of rhythm. Everything about this creature screamed chaos as it becomes larger than any of the previous Chimera.] "7.75 - Deep Inferno Kraken." [The best way to describe this being, was to the image of hundreds of worms all together within a pit, moving like vegetation in the depths of the sea, carried by the ever changing and violent currents of it.] "This is the third Inferno Chimera. It's the first time I see it myself. But trust me, it's powerful enough." [After being done, he would turn around and walk out the door, wishing to reach the surface as quickly as possible.] "Hope you liked it."
“Thanks Kazuo, one of the reasons why I hung around might now be gone, have fun going through with this awful transaction, bye idiot.” {She’d proceed to walk away, being thankful that the waste of space that weighted on her leg disappeared from her list of problems.} “I have to leave before this stupid girl gets herself lost in this fiery cesspool.”

Pleasure doing business with you. *Before everyone limps out of the room, Amadeus looks over to them.* Oh. Before I forget. I did as you asked and am preparing to make my facility vanish. It should vanish from this world in... hmm, I started preperations 2minutes ago so... ah yes. The facility and all inside shall be transported to it's new location in 3 minutes or so. That should be more than enough time for you to leave yes? Yes, of course. Well, until next time. *With everyone out of the room, the door slams shut and locks. It would seem, if the Raven is to be believed, you have 3 minutes to leave or you may be trapped inside after all.*
“You know Kazuo, you’re awful, but your classmates really are setting the bar high. Like Apollo wishing harm to befall a teammate that killed an annoying enemy, resulting in her saving one of the teammates you might’ve forgot you had. Such a charmer, he’s sure to be an amazing example for his little sister.” {Sana would continue to talk trash as the building would go through it’s magical transportation phase, making sure to leave before that happens.}
"...So uh... yeah... grab your asses and RUN!!!" [Kazuo would quickly stretch his body before dashing out back the way they came from. Despite the danger, he is laughing.] "HAHAHA! Guys remember when I said he can keep the Chimera? That I can't command it from far away!?" [Kazuo would reach into his pocket and bring out a coin with an angel/devil motif.] "Lying's a bitch." [Kazuo would flip the coin, as per Gad's instructions, which will give him great fortune, for as long as he doesn't use it again for the rest of the day. After doing this, he would clap his hands together, his eyes turning into golden once more and red markings appearing all over his body.] - [At the same time, Deep Inferno Kraken would begin to act strangely, attacking the floor. Not long after this, the rest of the body would become static. It would then slowly vibrate, covering the entire floor on the same liquid it kept oozing. Once it did so, every single one of its nightmarish tentacles would rush at Amadeus, but not to strike at him, but to strike around him. A black void would be created, trying to trap him in. If successful, it would trap Amadeus within a void, colorless vacuum, very similar to the emptiness of space itself. The same radiation would attack him, and the same freezing cold. Not only that, but both of those would keep getting worse by the second, creating a pocket dimension where no life can ever keep going without eternal suffering, if they were lucky enough to escape or be liberated. However, if this doesn't work, then it would not matter. Because in the floor right under Kraken is a message.]
Tell the butterfly chick I said hi.
[What is certain, is that Kraken's body would immediately turn into nothing but rubble right then and there, with no signs of life whatsoever, and nothing special about the materials themselves.] - [Two spheres of spiritual energy would return to Kazuo and rejoin his own body as he runs with the rest.] "The Chimera are a part of me, there is no way I can actually lose any of them. Like distance has ANYTHING to do with what happens to them! To take them is to take my soul, and I’m very much still here!" [He keeps running, now just aiming to leave and never return.] "Talk to me when we're out!"
“...ugh, at least you’re an intelligent version of awful.” {As per Kazuo’s instructions, Sana would hasten her departure not because she wanted to, but because she could yell at him quicker.}

*Amadeus watches the Kraken with interest. As it attacks, the Raven is able to avoid the void, watching it from on high from the outside as the Kraken vanishes. Amadeus chuckles.* Ah. Such a grifter you are. Well, never mind. After all, I just needed a scan and an example of it's moves before I can make a copy. Appreciate it, Kazuo. But if that's the limit of this world's power, than I feel like He'll have no issue running these humans over. Shinami and Galio should be embarassed to fall to such weaklings. Now then, were was I... Ah yes. Activate transport. *The voice of the security AI sounds through out the facility* TELEPORTATION PROTOCALS COMMENCING.
****
* Everyone is safely able to emerge from the ruins safely. Twenty seconds later, the ruins enterance simply vanishes along with all the signs of construction that had been on the outside, leaving only grass and trees returning to their natural place in the park. The danger had passed. Battered and broken, but alive, you escaped the Ruin. However, Amadeus remains at large. Who knows what the Raven and his allies have planned for the future. Perhaps it would be best to stay on your toes.*

Apollo runs with Kazuo, nodding along as he listens to Kazuo explaining himself. Once they get out, he catches his breath and lies Neesh down next to Asami, who was still lying asleep in the grass. He sneers, thinking of what Kazuo's summon must've done to Asmodeus. "Gotta say, that was a pretty sage tactic. And here I was assuming you were an idiot."
