AMELIA: Wait. Before you go.
DELL: whats up amelia
AMELIA: We’ll be coming with you when you go to fight the Superego, but I don’t think we’ll be able to do as much damage as you all. I have an idea to rectify that.
AMELIA: I’m sure you all will be busy for the next seven days, but there are several engineers in your group, correct?

ERIN: Yeah, Qam and I are both pretty good with that kind of thing!
AMELIA: Excellent. When either of you have downtime, I would appreciate any help you could provide on a project I’ve been thinking of for some time.
AMELIA: Is there anywhere that you know of that we could use as a workshop? We’re going to need a lot of room.

EMMY: i think my house would work for that actually
AMELIA: Yes, I remember your house. That will be optimal, thank you.
ERIN: And you guys can get there okay? Do you need a lift?
AMELIA: That won’t be necessary. I have a transportalizer in my inventory that I set up to teleport to a number of locations, one of which is near Emmy’s house.

DELL: right, weve been there several times
DHRUVASHISPRITE: Then you are already aware of it? Good. Inside its moon lies a set of seven sacrificial slabs that work as an alternative to Quest Beds.

PHOBEIMOSSPRITE: -(THEY JUST PULLED SIX KERNELSPRITES OUT OF HIM=>

LARS: Ah. Intriguing. How exactly did that happen?
DHRUVASHISPRITE: Space is the aspect of form. Breath is the aspect of freedom. The Thief of Space and the Mage of Breath freed the forms of these kernelsprites from myself, with some empowerment from the Rogue of Hope. Each kernelsprite has one free prototyping, and I now have none left. They were already capable of this, I simply instructed them on how.
PHOBEIMOSSPRITE: -(COULD THEY DO THE SAME THING TO US PHOENIX SPRITES AND BRING US BACK TO LIFE BY SEPARATING US FROM WHAT WE WERE PROTOTYPED INTO?=>
DHRUVASHISPRITE: Unfortunately, no. If they tried, they would only succeed in retrieving your corpses. However, it is unnecessary to do so since you are planning on ascending to God Tier.
KROBLANCOSPRITE: Right...

DHRUVASHI: Now then, what you want is for me to help fight Viy, correct?

NINA: Actually, we were hoping that you would be able to help us come up with a better plan than the one we have.
DHRUVASHI: What is your plan?
NINA: Well, it’s a bit of a long story, but one of the other Phoenixes, or Atlanteans I suppose, is being possessed by something called the Superego.
NINA: The Superego is the last of a set of three beings, the Triad, who intend to summon Viy. The Superego put a collar on one of our friends that will apparently kill him in seven days if all of us don’t meet with it in the core of Ultiera. Our “plan”, if you can even call it that, is to have everyone ascend to god tier and find the legendary weapons hidden on our planets, and then free Laraminia, the possessed phoenix.

DHRUVASHI: And I assume that the collar cannot be removed?
CYTHEDITESPRITE: function(correct);
DHRUVASHI: Then it appears that you don’t have much of a choice. However, I must ask...
DHRUVASHI: How does this Superego intend to summon Viy? Viy has been dead for over ten thousand years.

QAMARKINO: ...has she? i... i guess i’ve been tOO distraCted tO nOtiCe...
QAMARKINO: but either way, she's nOt the laraminia that we phOenixes used tO knOw. OnCe we arrived On ultiera, all she did was make seCret plans with a few Other peOple. asteriOn was One Of them, as was the grey queen, whO was pOssessed by sOmething Called the drOw pimp.

LARS: That explains why we encountered the Drow Pimp again before we fought Asterion.

MACK: are you telling me...
MACK: that this curse did NOTHING?!
MACK: that it was all in my head?
MACK: that i learned to be a team player or whatever... for no reason?!

UTU: No.
UTU: While it is true that the curse was a placebo, there was an excellent reason for it.

MACK: there better be!
UTU: As a Denizen of this session, I know things that even a sprite would not.
UTU: And I know that this session is null.

MACK: null? what does that mean?
MACK: do you mean that we’ve done all this for nothing?

UTU: Not at all. This session is destined to fail as a session of Sburb, that is, to create a universe, but you and your friends are not doomed. In fact, you have a very important part to play in the grand scheme of things.
UTU: However, it is not my place to tell you about that.

MACK: oh, come ON!
UTU: Rest assured, my little “curse” was necessary to prepare you for what lies ahead.
UTU: A lost friend of yours will appear to you and your group shortly. He will tell you of your true quest.

MACK: well what do i do now, then?
UTU: Return to your friends. Preserve your strength. You will need it.

AMORIA: Anyway.
AMORIA: The gist of it is, your souls are up in these statues. As well as in your bodies.

DELL: so what do we do with them
0003: Keep them as safe as possible. Whatever happens to these statues will happen to you as well.
DELL: theyre giant voodoo dolls then
0003: Essentially.
AMORIA: There’s one more thing you should know, though.
AMORIA: The Phoenixes also have phylacteries.

THEREMINASPRITE: rEally? how do you know that?
AMORIA: That’s how soul magic works, yo. If you know something uses soul magic, it’s pretty easy to figure out if it’s linked with anything else.
DELL: so why do these things even exist
DELL: if theremina doesnt know anything about them then theyre not normally part of sburb since shes a sprite

AMORIA: No clue. Whoever made them, their intent ain’t good.
THEREMINASPRITE: do you know whErE thE othEr onEs arE?
AMORIA: Somewhere on Ultiera, I think.

0003: Thanks to Amoria’s Magic Hero class, she was the one who did most of the research.
AMORIA: I better get paid or something, yo. Book work ain’t my thing.
0003: Yes, well, anyway, we discovered that these statues have certain magical properties that will be of interest to you.
0003: These statues are what we in Sunnydale would refer to as phylacteries. The terminology and precise workings may be different here, but in essence, they are one and the same.

DELL: isnt a phylactery the thing a lich stores their soul in
DELL: i played a lot of dungeons of sunnydale before it shut down
DELL: that was my bad

0003: That is their most common use, yes. However, it is also possible to store someone’s soul without removing it from their body, according to our research. This method is not restricted to liches, who presumably do not exist outside of Sunnydale, anyone’s soul can be stored in a phylactery this way.
DELL: but why are they shaped like us
0003: Because-
DELL: i mean aside from the obvious fact that its definitely our souls that are in there
0003: Oh. Probably no other reason.

DP: guess WHO?
DELL: wait but
DELL: we killed you

MERANIMUS: {whos-that}
NINA: That’s the Drow Pimp. We mentioned him in our conference about Asterion. I have no idea how he’s back.
DP: and YOULL never KNOW because IM going TO kill YOU all!
MACK: we’ve beaten you once, we can beat you again! prepare yourselves, everyone. here he comes!

NINA: Is everyone ready to fight?
EMMY: lets get this done



05/08/15
"===>"



NINA: What?
MACK: what you said earlier, about the drow pimp being an id and asterion being an ego...
MACK: that got me thinking about what other similarities they have.
ERIN: They both came out of absolutely nowhere. Maybe from the same place?
NINA: Mack, you’re right. It’s quite possible that Asterion is possessing someone, although I don’t know who that would be. Although, Laraminia and Qamarkino are missing... It could be either of them, but on the other hand, the Drow Pimp looked much more like a human when it possessed Emmy.
ERIN: What if it’s not possessing either of them? I don’t know what it would be possessing, but it’s possible.
DELL: wouldnt it make sense for him to possess the most powerful thing he can find
DELL: and that would happen to be us, wouldnt it

ERIN: That’s true!
NINA: So we don’t know if Asterion is possessing one of them or not, which means...
MERANIMUS: {we-cant-kill-him}
MERANIMUS: {our-friend-could-be-in-there}

NINA: Precisely.
MACK: so what are we going to do?
DELL: tie him up
NINA: I doubt that would help, he seems to be able to teleport.
DELL: knock him out
DELL: maybe that would release the possession

THEREMINA: i’M up for that! thE bastard killEd dEar, swEEt phobEiMos!
PHOBEIMOSSPRITE: -(...=>
EMMY: well that seems like everything
EMMY: we shouldnt waste time dawdling around here or he might notice weve escaped our planets

NINA: Um, I have a question. Do we actually know where Asterion is?
PHOBEIMOSSPRITE: -(I’M WILLING TO BET THAT HE’S THE ONE PLACE WE HAVEN’T BEEN=>
PHOBEIMOSSPRITE: -(ULTIERA=>



05/08/15
"===>"



PHOBEIMOSSPRITE: -(I THINK I CAN NULLIFY ANY DARKNESS-RELATED ATTACKS HE THROWS AT US=>
ERIN: I can make sure he doesn’t get away by stealing any space between him and us. That’ll also let us get close to him without him noticing once we know where he is.
NINA: Okay, that sounds good in terms of defense. But how are we going to beat him?
EMMY: wait
EMMY: i should mention something else i learned
EMMY: its likely that he wont attempt to fight us directly, or fairly for that matter
EMMY: lars told me that according to his research, asterion will probably try to kill us using his powers from afar

DELL: well then why hasnt he killed us already
EMMY: because he doesnt think he needs to!
EMMY: he clearly thought the darkness around our planets would hold us, which is why he killed phobeimos, because he thought he was the only one who could break it
EMMY: so
EMMY: while its a good idea to go into this expecting a fight, i think it may be more of a puzzle

NINA: That makes sense.
NINA: We’ll all need to be prepared for anything with Asterion, I guess.

MACK: ...do you think he’s possessing someone?



05/08/15
"===>"



EMMY: but since his powers are based on the inverse of light and space, we can probably somehow counter that with our own light and space players
PHOBEIMOSSPRITE: -(I'M THE GUARD OF LIGHT=>
PHOBEIMOSSPRITE: -(I'M NOT EXACTLY A GOD TIER PLAYER BUT I'VE LEARNED TO CREATE BURSTS OF LIGHT FROM COMBATTING THE DARKNESS AROUND OUR PLANETS=>

ERIN: And I'm the Thief of Space! With my powers I've learned to steal the characteristics of other things, namely the darkness around our planets!
NINA: Both of you will be indispensable in the upcoming fight. We'll need to keep you protected. Who here can act as a front-line fighter?
DELL: i can
DELL: its about the only use i can find for my powers

CYTHEDITE: function(so_can_i);
CYTHEDITE: function(ive_been_experimenting_with_alchemy_to_
create_the_most_powerful_whip_i_can);

LARS: I will. I have a lot of anger to take out on somebody.
EMMY: im up for it too
KROBLANCO: ...
NINA: Anyone else?
KROBLANCO: I will too...
KROBLANCO: I might not be az ztrong az the rezt of you but i can ztill help...

NINA: Excellent. Now, several of us use ranged weapons. Theremina, Meranimus and Mack, will you join me behind the front ranks?
THEREMINA: hEll yEah, lEt's kick soME big bronzE butt!
MERANIMUS: {sure-thing-sister}
NINA: Mack?
MACK: i don't think that's a good idea.
MACK: as much as i want to fight, i've been working really hard to get rid of this curse by aiding you guys instead of fighting directly, and i think i'll keep doing that.
NINA: Sounds good. Now, the question is, how are Erin and Phobeimos going to use their powers to defeat him? Something tells me just hitting him until he dies isn't going to work.

THEREMINA: okay! so wE’rE all back togEthEr! bEcausE of My good friEnd phobEiMos, no lEss!
THEREMINA: that is, ExcEpt for laraMinia and qamarkino...
THEREMINA: but if what EMMy says is truE thEn wE’rE going to nEEd to look out for laraMinia fighting against us!

PHOBEIMOSSPRITE: -(HOLD ON, WHAT=>
EMMY: okay
EMMY: the reason i went missing in the first place is because laraminia somehow teleported me to a dream bubble, stabbed me, and then left me there

DELL: hold up
DELL: why would she do that

EMMY: i have no idea! maybe she wanted something from me
EMMY: but in any case
EMMY: while i was in the dream bubble i learned something else from an alternate version of lars who has been studying our session
EMMY: there is a being named asterion nearby who originates from outside the session

PHOBEIMOSSPRITE: -(THAT EXPLAINS WHY I DON’T KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT HIM=>
MACK: i was with emmy when they learned about asterion!
EMMY: asterion is an incredibly powerful being, known as an ego
NINA: Similar to the Drow Pimp, who was an Id, I assume?
EMMY: probably
EMMY: but he seems to be even stronger than the drow pimp

NINA: It stands to reason that if an Id and Ego have already attacked our session, then perhaps a Superego will in the future.
EMMY: we can worry about that later once we take care of asterion
EMMY: we learned that he has several weaknesses from lars
EMMY: first of all hes not really the sharpest knife in the drawer
EMMY: hes impatient and overconfident
EMMY: but even so hes still a force to be reckoned with
EMMY: his powers are mainly centered around darkness and space manipulation

NINA: That would confirms that the darkness around our planets was caused by him.
EMMY: yes

ASTERION: Pimp, before you leave, are you aware of the darkness technique I placed on the planets?

DP: the WHAT now?
ASTERION: Before we revived you, I teleported the humans and phoenixes to their own planets and covered them in an impenetrable darkness, to give us time to revive you and charge the-
LARAMINIA: o-ahem-o
ASTERION: ...Right.
ASTERION: To charge that certain thing.

DP: so WHAT dog? its JUST darkness RIGHT?
ASTERION: Not exactly. It is a solid material made of darkness, which should prove indestructible to all but the strongest sources of light. Not even your abilities could destroy it.
DP: so WHAT you SAYIN?
ASTERION: The players are still trapped under the darkness.

ERIN: I think I used my space powers! They finally have a use outside teleportation!
DELL: well thats cool
DELL: mine are still the same as always
DELL: empowered weapon attacks, mostly
DELL: and there was that one thing i did to the drow pimp to free emmy back in the day
DELL: “back in the day”
DELL: has it been long enough that i can say that yet

ERIN: Yeah, makes sense to me.
ERIN: Hey, you know, I’ve never really met Erinsprite.
ERIN: I’ve heard you say her name occasionally, but we’ve never formally met.

ERINZILLASPRITE: Nice to meet you!
ERIN: I’d shake your hand but I have a feeling for some reason that would be a terrible idea.
ERINZILLASPRITE: Same.
DELL: ...so whats the gameplan
ERIN: Good question!
ERIN: Normally, Nina would be the one I’d turn to for plans, but I thought of one myself on the way here. We need to coordinate a sneak attack on the guy who killed Phobeimos!
ERIN: If I remember correctly, and I’m pretty sure I do, the last thing that happened before I woke up on my own planet was him doing some sort of limit break.

DELL: limit break
ERIN: You know, a super attack.
DELL: got it
ERIN: So, if that’s the case, then I suspect that he is the one who created the impenetrable darkness around our planets!
ERIN: Speaking of that, I think we should deal with that first. I don’t think it’ll be possible to transport all you guys around by myself with that in the way.
ERIN: So here’s my plan. We need to meet up with Nina!

DELL: thats your plan
ERIN: As I said, Nina is the one I turn to for plans. I have the framework set up, and if anyone can, it’ll be her who can come up with a way to accomplish it!
DELL: so how are we gonna meet up with nina
ERIN: Simple, just grab my hand! I’ll fly us there.

(LARS): We have also found prophecies which while may be inaccurate state that he will be defeated through mainly the combined efforts of the heroes of Light and Space. However this does not mean the other players are not valuable to his downfall. On the contrary. All of you will have to work together to defeat him.
MACK: ...



24/07/15
"===>"



(LARS): I've been collaborating with the alternate timeline versions of myself who have arrived in this dream bubble for some time and we've learned many things about our friend Asterion.
(LARS): For example he is quite ruthless. His personality is strange but don't be fooled. He will eliminate any perceived threat first. Even before it becomes a threat. He is quite a bit more tactical than the Drow Pimp. His favored weapons are a pair of strangely-shaped swords which he uses with incredible skill. However he is not without flaws. From the texts we have studied we have been able to glean that he does not have much patience. This may be useful to you.

CRABSPRITE: What happened to your skin?
CRABSPRITE: It's all weird and golden.

MACK: ugh. my friend's denizen cursed me for some reason or another. he wanted me to be more of a team player? something like that.
MACK: but i have! and i'm still cursed.
MACK: although it's not much of a curse, i'll be honest...
MACK: "oh, look at me, i'm big and golden, now you're golden too and maybe also slightly more impulsive? heck if i know, i'm just a big snake."
MACK: he said it would go away once i learned to "fight coordinating with others".
MACK: oh whatever, being gold isn't that bad. it looks nice with my clothes, at least.
MACK: so... what have you been up to for the last year?
CRABSPRITE: Oh, you know. The usual. Making money. Selling goods and services. You?
MACK: well, uh...
MACK: i helped rescue my friend from some spirit guy.

ERIN: I... I got lonely...

ERIN: I mean, that’s why I started dating Lars for pete’s sake.

EMMY: wait how long HAVE i been here
(LARS): There is no way to tell. How long has it felt like?
EMMY: like five minutes at most
(LARS): I hope you're right.
(LARS): Now.
(LARS): I'm going to tell you all I know about Asterion.



21/07/15

(LARS): I am the curator of this dream bubble.
(LARS): Not that it's very populated.
(LARS): For the past god knows how many centuries I have studied our session and collected many artifacts and tomes relating to it.
(LARS): I am here to help you in the upcoming battles you will face.
(LARS): Not physically of course. I cannot leave.
(LARS): But I can help you create a plan.
(LARS): In my time in this dream bubble I have been studying our session and how it differs from an ordinary one.

EMMY: what do you mean an ordinary one
(LARS): Our session is highly irregular. In most sessions of Sburb there is no Drow Pimp or Ultiera or phoenixes.
(LARS): There is no Asterion.

EMMY: asterion?
(LARS): Our session contains a being who calls himself Asterion.
(LARS): I have gleaned this from legendary texts in this dream bubble similar to the ones referring to the Drow Pimp.
(LARS): In the past he was a spirit possessing the First Guardian of Earth but the First Guardian sacrificed himself to strip Asterion of some of his abilities. Unfortunately Asterion remained in the First Guardian's form and is now the sole owner of it.
(LARS): By the way.
(LARS): The Drow Pimp was another spirit similar to Asterion.
(LARS): I still do not know the origin of these spirits but I will tell you that the method your friends used to free you from the Drow Pimp's influence will not work. Asterion is the owner of his form whereas the Drow Pimp was simply possessing you.

EMMY: wait
EMMY: i dont even know who this asterion is
EMMY: are we supposed to fight him?

(LARS): But it’s not like I’m just sitting here twiddling my thumbs.
EMMY: what is there to do
(LARS): For you? Here? Not much.
(LARS): For me? A lot actually.
(LARS): I should tell you that I am from neither from your timeline nor from the one that created Macksprite and Larssprite.
(LARS): I am from a third timeline.
(LARS): Before I traveled to your timeline and got killed by Macksprite I talked with my denizen.
(LARS): Mummu told me to travel to your timeline you know.
(LARS): I knew I would be killed but I have a purpose here.

EMMY: a purpose?



21/07/15

(LARS): ...
(LARS): So how’s your timeline going?

EMMY: my timeline?
(LARS): You know. Everything. Except me. I’m from a different timeline.
EMMY: oh just great
EMMY: weve been wandering around pointlessly for a year and all of a sudden laraminia teleports me here and stabs me

(LARS): Laraminia...
(LARS): I should have known.
(LARS): It was obvious to anyone with a brain in fact.
(LARS): Well when I saved the Lars from your timeline from Macksprite I assumed it was the alpha.
(LARS): Seeing as how far it’s come I hope I’m correct.

EMMY: woah what
EMMY: when was this

(LARS): For me I have no idea. For you probably about a year.
EMMY: i must have missed it
EMMY: ...
EMMY: so how long have you been here

(LARS): Again I have no idea. Maybe years. Maybe centuries. Perhaps even millennia. There’s no way to tell.
EMMY: oh
EMMY: well
EMMY: that sucks

(LARS): It does suck.

KROBLANCO: They know enough about it to see that it shouldn’t be used. And that is enough.
QAMARKINO: I...
QAMARKINO: No! I will not let this rest! For the good of Atlantis!
QAMARKINO: Isn’t that what we all want here?!
QAMARKINO: In time, you will see that you have made the wrong decision.

KROBLANCO: It is decided. We will not use this weapon for now. It is much too risky.

KROBLANCO: Well.
KROBLANCO: Let’s get down to business. First, I’ll explain the situation.
KROBLANCO: Head Engineer Qamarkino claims that he has created a weapon capable of destroying an entire empire. He says that we can force the Ramans to surrender, or face annihilation.
KROBLANCO: However, Master of Diplomacy Phobeimos insists that the Ramans would not surrender under even those circumstances. This would force us to actually deploy the weapon, destroying the entire empire, killing hundreds of thousands of our own troops, and destroying some of our outlying settlements.
KROBLANCO: So, we have two choices. We could reveal, but possibly use, the weapon, or we could continue the war as it stands.
KROBLANCO: As always, this decision will be decided with a vote.

QAMARKINO: And if they don’t... well, let’s just say it’s better to be a vassal state than to have no state at all! Kwehehehehe!

KROBLANCO: Forcing the Ramans to surrender is certainly one way to end the war.
KROBLANCO: But there must be a catch.

QAMARKINO: Not at all!
QAMARKINO: Of course, the VIY would require a very large amount of power for it to work, but that is but a small price to pay for the guaranteed safety of an empire.

Awesome Hexane Recap
ok so at the end of the last recap TA told us to ‘read the rest yourself’ so i was like wow fine next youll ask us to write the damn thing and long story short i did

i figured a story as great and glorious as hexane deserved a full on summary of everything our wonderful heroes have accomplished over the course of this gripping adventure and since many hexane readers were talking about losing track of the story im publishing it here for all to see so here u go:


After we first meet Erin, she gets one of her robots to make her an omelette, and then runs some @ack codes. She is festered by a bum, who assures her that this game is really important to play. Lars's land is introduced as the Land of Sky and Temples, and Spritehearst reveals that their session will contain another session within itself.

Nina is given some insight from her argumentative dual-sprite. She then works on Mack's house some more while Mack kills more underlings. He is almost bested by a Diamond Giclops but is saved by his dad, who then disappears into the fog. Mack then somehow trips up a flight of stairs and passes out.

Mack's dream self wakes up on the Fused Prospit and Derse and is immediately killed by Bruno. He wakes up as normal Mack again and defeats a Golem with Crabsprite's help, ascending his echeladder.

CD meets up with HB and JN on the Fused Derse and Prospit. Jack explains that DD has gone rogue so they have to kill all the purple people. After killing a purple person, Jack goes to have a rap battle with the Queen only to find her severed hand and her ring. DD then barges in and takes the ring.

Suddenly, Erin interrupts the plot, only to be interrupted by Nina. Nina does some alchemy and gets involved in Lars and Erin's relationship problems. She makes a shipping chart and is festered by a bum. The bums are revealed to be phoenixes. Phoenix romance is explained in vivid detail. Nina is festered by a different bum.

Act 3 is then split into sub-sub-acts. Act 3 Act 1 Act 2 introduces Theremina, the Jupiter phoenix. She fucks around in her room, then pesters Mack, then goes to a different phoenix's room.

Act 3 Act 1 Act 3 begins with Dell. He admires his venus fly trap again, then fucks with Nina's house some more. He then witnesses Nina's journal being stolen by an evil looking hot dog guy. The story transitions to Emmy. She plays with her toys for a while, then goes to sleep. She witnesses some interesting events in Skaia's clouds, and we transition to another phoenix.

We are introduced to Kroblanco, the Saturn phoenix. He has some "tea" with his "cats", and then plays some Bumgeons of Bummydale. Then he goes to visit Qamarkino (another phoenix).

In the last sub-act of Act 3 Act 1, Erin makes a Sburb connection with Emmy and Emmy enters the medium.

Act 3 Act 2 begins with Lars. He does some alchemy and makes lots of sweet loot. He then uses a time traveling device he made to hop to another timeline. In this timeline, Mack is crazy and has killed Lars. Lars strips his dead timeline self and then throws his corpse at the homicidal Mack. He quickly absconds this place.

We zoom in to Skaia. With the four prototypes, the Draconian Dignitary stands as the Demented Doombringer. He slays both kings and takes their scepters, and the sub-sub-act concludes as he flies off back towards the fused dream planetoids to retrieve the final ring.

We are introduced to Meranimus, the Mercury phoenix. He kisses some posters and does some more crap. Soon, a robot named Yomar enters the room with a message from Qamarkino. Meranimus rides his trusty robot steed out into the hallway, but bangs his head on the door frame.

Erin takes control of the story as she finally leaves her room. She charges throughout her house wearing bull horns and runs into her metal statue mom and engages in strife. We are shown Emmy's land; the Land of Mines and Torches.

Dell appears again as his power suddenly goes out. He tentatively steps into his basement to check the fusebox, traversing obstacles such as elephant heads and a musical curry machine, only to find out it has been destroyed by a meteor.

Suddenly, the worst person ever, tiresiasArchivist interrupts the story with a lame recap. They then imbibe their essence with the soul of the most potent being in existence. The coalescence of these perfectly equal and opposite consciences cause an imbalance in the universe's configuration, resulting in the tragic and dramatic loss of one neon orange head garnish. This preposterously aberrant actuality highfives their exemplary and exceptionally meritorious colleague, and we finally stop shitting around and get back to the fucking story.

Nina works her way up to her first gate while Carl builds up Mack's house. Mack enters his first gate and ends up in a crab-populated suburb. Mack visits a shop, but his disposition of buying many items without actually paying causes him to get far in debt, and he is thrown in crab jail.

During his long and grueling imprisonment, Nina reaches her first gate. Mack eventually gets Theremina to use her power over metal to open the gate and set Mack free. However, the fuzz is right on his tail. The fugitive suddenly spies a poster of his Denizen, ending the sub-sub-act.

We are introduced to Phobeimos, the Mars troll, as he is being accosted by a certain unwanted visitor. They strife and admit their feelings for each other, and she leaves. He examines his rather boring room filled with war posters and weapons, and then plays some Bumgeons of Bummydale. He is then festered by another phoenix, and Ultiera, a mysterious third dream planet, is introduced.

We switch to 0003. His exile base flies to Atlantis, where there is a frog temple. 0003 makes sure to admire Lars's maps through his exile screen before entering the temple only to find a mysterious first guardian named Asterion. Asterion teleports 0003 to a tiny and inescapable room, and gives 0003 a note asking him to kill his master. 0003 privately accepts the offer, and we switch to Dell.

Dell's bro takes the meteor away, and Dell takes the fusebox deeper into the basement to repair it. He finds a fusebox repair manual, but is accosted by a character select screen before he can begin.

We are introduced to Qamarkino, the Moon phoenix. He tells his visiting friends, Kroblanco and Meranimus, about how they can leave the space shuttle as soon as the kids beat their session. Therefore, they each choose a different kid to fester to help them beat their session faster. Meranimus shoots some cyber-hoops with Dell and Kroblanco kills an ogre for Lars, and afterwards plays Bumgeons of Bummydale with him. After a lot more fucking around, Qamarkino and Kroblanco try to get Lars to talk to Erin so that Erin can enter the medium before being killed by meteors. Lars is very reluctant to talk to Erin as he is still not over their breakup, and the phoenixes fail to convince him to do so. Suddenly, Kroblanco gets an idea.

Which is not revealed to us. Instead, we are introduced to Laraminia, the Sun phoenix. After examining her room and failing to guess the end of Hexane, she goes to sleep and wakes up on Ultiera. A horrorterror tries to communicate with her, but she is festered by MO, waking her up. She goes to his room to enact Kroblanco's plan, which is to use her emotion powers to make Lars happy to make it easier to convince him to message Erin. Laraminia does so, overexerts herself, and faints.

We change to Emmy, who is suddenly very irritable. It turns out Laraminia used her powers to make Emmy happy all the time, and this is her normal self. She leaves her dream room, which has floated to LOMAT, and flies to her real room. Suddenly, alternate Mack shows up in Emmy's room using Lars's time device. Before he can do anything, Emmy's sprite accidentally flies into Doomed Lars's dead corpse. While Mack is distracted, Emmy throws him out the window.

We transition to Lars. Larssprite arrives by Lars's side on a mission to message Erin, only to find him absolutely batshit insane jolly. As Larssprite begins messaging Erin, Lars gets Kroblanco to make giant earth pillars in order to travel to a tower, causing Kroblanco to faint with overexertion. Lars goes to the tower and brutally murders happily greets some vicious underlings new friends. He enthusiastically tries to share some boondollars he finds with Kroblanco, but Kroblanco fails to respond due to his unconsciousness. Lars is offended and his mood returns to normal. He returns to Larssprite, who is messaging Erin, and make him make his own chathandle.

We see Nina, who is traversing the Devil's Road. She and Carl defeat a powerful Elephantitan, and enter a tomb. Carl scouts out the path ahead but ends up captured by some weird Dersites, chanting to an obviously completely irrelevant being named Viy. Nina kills the Dersites and saves Carl.

Meanwhile, Mack has escaped the fuzz, and with his help Dell is able to enter the medium and his land; the Land of Masks and Darkness.

To kick off the third sub-act of Act 3, Emmy does some alchemy. Soon after, Cythedite starts festering her and tries to apologize. However, this only enrages Emmy. She storms outside and encounters Alternate Mack, who she angrily proceeds to wallop, eventually leading up to her cutting off his hand. Alternate Mack then flies into the Frog Temple and into the Lotus Capsule. He awakens years in the future and flies into Erin's house, where he tears off the hand of an Erinbot to use as a prosthetic. He tells Erin that he'll make sure to get her in the game if she can make the hand work. She agrees.

As we go back to Emmy, she captchalogues the hand in her Block Hitter modus. After reflecting on how cold her land is despite of being a Land of Torches, she spots a large torch in the distance. She goes there and meets one of her canary consorts, who tells her about her quest to light the land's torches. However, she seems very uninterested in the whole thing.

We are introduced to our last phoenix, Cythedite, the Venus phoenix. After looking around her room, she is pestered by her 777 mate, Phobeimos. He complains about how Theremina treats him, so Cythedite suggests to take up a more creative hobby to help him be calmer. Together they go to the appearifier and appearify a copy of Hamlet, which Phobeimos agrees to read.

Dell, now in the Medium, realizes his sprite is dumb as shit and decides to prototype it with his Erin-colored glasses, making it into a Godzilla version of Erin. Erinzilla reveals that they'll have a dual session with the phoenixes, and they go off to explore LOMAT. They enter a temple, and eventually discover numerous bat consorts. They tell Dell that their land is ruled by a fierce tyrant, and they want him to lead an army force to overthrow him. Dell accepts.

As Mack, we meet some jerky crab consorts, who explain the guild system of LOMAG to him. Then Meranimus meets up with Theremina to try and prank Mack, but Mack's so clueless that they pretty much fail. So instead she tells him his quest is to unite the guilds.

We come back to Kroblanco as he regains consciousness. Then, Qamarkino gets mad at him for using his powers without a good reason. As the self-proclaimed leader he decides to go tell the other phoenixes that he forbids them from using their powers without his permission. They first go to deliver the news to Phobeimos, but he is too busy weeping and quoting Hamlet to pay any attention. Next they decide to talk to Meranimus and Theremina. However, Theremina believes she should be the leader, so they resort to violence.

Now, Dell does his fair share of alchemy. We then transition to post-apocalypse Earth and the post-exile Midnight Crew. On their exile screen, they see Emmy uninterestedly going through with her quest. They're about to say something when their exile base arrives at the Frog Temple with a crash and a BULL! Then, the author makes the greatest pun in fanventure history.

Erin has since made the robot hand work for Alternate Mack. However, Mack then says he lied about helping her into the Medium, and that he'll actually probably hinder it if Lars sees him. So Erin leads Mack into her mom's tomb to hide in. Mack sets off some security cameras which activate the security system, causing a superweapon to deploy. However, Erin is able to deactivate the weapon before it kills anyone.

After killing some underlings, Dell comes to a hill and encounters the Midnight Crew. Spades immediately stabs Dell. However, Dell does some sort of bloody thing, and they change sides. They bring him home where Erinzillasprite heals him, and then Spades Slick uses shadow-based magic to make him the new leader of the Midnight Crew. He deploys a transportalizer to the gang's base, and it is there that they go over the mission, which is to kill as many of the Exusia as possible while Dell tries to find the DoS Machine and deactivate it. The Midnight Crew, now with Dell, go to the Exusia base on LOGAC, where they split up and spread out.

Back on LOMAT, Laraminia starts festering Emmy. While Laraminia exposits on phoenix lore, Emmy ascends the steps to her Quest Bed on her now lit-torch-ridden land. Laraminia describes a horrorterror named Viy, a destroyer and a conqueror. Once the other horrorterrors banded together to banish him, he created seven disciples, the phoenixes, to revive him at an unknown time. Emmy doesn't really care, and it was interrupting the Midnight Crew storyline anyway so we transition back to that.

Spades has killed Hugo and is now in Fear's desert illusion, while Hearts's smut is floating of its own accord. Dell's path intersects with Hearts's, and they follow the smut to where Caesar lays, where they immediately kill him. Clubs has found Donut, but after beating him savagely, Donut teleports him to Dorspit.

The strife between Theremina and Qamarkino concludes with Theremina having shot Qamarkino's wing, rendering him flightless. Meranimus panics and goes to Cythedite for help, and gets the idea to replace Qamarkino's phoenix wings with AIRPLANE WINGS. Theremina has a talk with Kroblanco about Qamarkino, while Cythedite gets Phobeimos to help with the operation by getting him to amputate Qamarkino's wings. However, Phobeimos cuts them off before they apply any anesthetic, causing Qamarkino to exert his wind powers, blowing CD off of Dorspit.

Erin and Alternate Mack arrive at Erin's mom's coffin. However, upon opening it, she isn't in there. We then cut to the guardians in a Dersite jail, where Erin's Mom and multiple Mombots bust them out and take them to their respective kid's planets where they proceed to deal beatdowns to numerous underlings.

Lars has entered his first gate, and we encounter his underlings, hogs. However, they're too excited to say or do anything, so Lars just walks away. He then encounters an ectobiology station. He finds the ectobiology screens locked onto each of the kids' guardians at different points in time, which he uses to clone them. In doing so, he found out that the Sburb game discs came from Mack's dad all along. Who knew. So, he creates the paradox clones of the guardians, and then of the kids. Laraminia tells him all about that, and also some other stuff about their session.

Larssprite has sent Erin a copy of the game, but they need Lars to do all the server stuff, because sprites aren't allowed to. Erin's house starts shaking and Erin is frantically pestering Lars to help her. However, he doesn't respond as he leaves the ectobiology lab.

Mack is about to enter his second gate when he notices Skaia glowing. We cut to LOMAT as Emmy is about to ascend. The Drow Pimp has captured the DoS crew, and departs from Dorspit to arrive at the Quest Bed. He leaves Amelia's body, then possesses and kills Emmy's body, ascending to Pimp tier. Amelia awakens, fires an arrow at Skaia with her crossbow, and starts walking to Emmy's house.

Laraminia has witnessed the Pimpification, but couldn't care less. So, she goes to visit Qamarkino just as his airplane wings have been finished. She rambles on about classpects with Meranimus, before Qamarkino starts raging about being pushed aside and about everyone being an asshole. After kicking everyone out of his room, Cythedite goes to Phobeimos's room to have a feelings jam.

DD meets with the Drow Pimp and gives him a scepter and ring. He orders him to ensure the success of the session, so he teleports to LOGAC to meet up with Nina. He wants to teach her how to use her Doom powers, but Nina ain't havin' that. She ends up knocked out after pulling out a weapon and gettin' PIMP'D.

After using his time sense and seeing the doomed timeline where Erin dies from a meteor, Lars finally gets off his ass and onto his computer. He places the equipment and springs into action. When he releases the kernelsprite, Alternate Mack leaps out of the coffin and into the kernel, prototyping himself. With Macksprite's help, Erin finishes the alchemizing process and successfully enters the Medium.

Act 4 starts and unfolds with post-exile Midnight Crew. They enter the Frog Temple and encounter Asterion, who teleports away after Spades try to stab him, leaving a note.

Lars and Larssprite discuss Alternate Mack's return, but they try to forget about his bloodlust as they admire Erin's land, the Land of Frogs and Wildlands. At LOFAW, Phobeimos festers Erin to hurry the fuck up, even though Erin just arrived. Suddenly, a crackling purple orb appears above Erin's house, and Nina is revealed as it dissipates. Erin quickly catches her as she falls.

Mack enters his second gate, and appears above Nina's house, where he falls. He is caught by an winged serpent underling, who takes him to its nest on top of a spire.

We get back to present time Midnight Crew, as CD is blown right back to where he was with Donut. Then, HB breaks into the room and immediately kills Donut. Meanwhile, Dell infiltrates Fear's illusion and kills him.

At Erin's house, Nina comes to. She and Erin have a rad alchemy session, which ends with them making a working copy of Banjo-Kazooie, which Erin proceeds to waste hours playing. Qamarkino and Phobeimos start chiding them for it, then get mad at each other for distracting them. They confront each other in real life, and eventually Cythedite has to intervene to stop their fight, knocking out Qamarkino in the process.

Qamarkino's dream self then wakes up on Ultiera, meets dream Yomar, and goes exploring. They happen upon a strange lab, where they find multiple grey carapacians, including a king and queen, inside various cloning tubes. Suddenly, dream Laraminia appears, with an sinister offer to help make Qamarkino stronger.

Back at Erin's, Erin is about to stop playing Banjo-Kazooie when the Drow Pimp appears. He blasts Erin outside, and teleports Nina to Skaia to develop her Doom powers.

Meanwhile, Amelia has finally reached Emmy's house, and she is able to use her alchemiter to make some badass new clothes and weapons. After defeating a powerful underling, she is recruited by a bird to save a bird village from destruction.

In the underling nest, Mack is dealing with the basilisk babies when Huginn+Muninnsprite appears. They end up pissing Mack off by underestimating him, and Mack goes on a rage-fueled screaming montage, where he alchemizes some evil new clothes and swears to get stronger. He flies to a priceless tower and blows it up, then enters its remains to kill some more underlings.

Lars has gotten off his computer, and has found a hog village. Inside, after telling a hog about his love of lost cities, he is led to a hog scholar. The scholar has some tomes about lost cities, but has to translate them first.

Dell and the rest of the Midnight Crew regroup and are ready to enter the room with the DoS Machine. They have a short battle with Hugo and Tree who are guarding the door, and they enter the room. However, DD is there, waiting for them. They fight, and the Midnight Crew is able to deal some damage before DD pulls out the queen's ring. He puts it on, but while he's transforming, CD is able to blow up the DoS Machine, destroying DoS forever. Enraged, DD unleashes his new Breath powers, and the Red Miles. As the Miles ravage Derse, Dream Erin is able to save the dream selves of Nina, Lars, and Dell, and take them all to LOFAW.

Erin messages Lars and they are able to kind of reconcile. As Lars works on her house, he sees Macksprite about to attack his dream self. However, yet another alternate future version of Lars suddenly appears to stop him.

In the LOGAC tower, a Fear illusion next to Mack dissipates as the DoS machine is destroyed. Entering the newly exposed room, he finds the legendary Welcome Skewer, as well as the Bloody Hell. Mack is too unworthy to even spare a passing glance upon the fabled skewer and its overwhelming valor, so he simply takes the Bloody Hell and continues on his way.

It turns out the Pimp is trying to help Nina "understand" Doom by killing lots of Prospitians (and Dersites, but he just happens to like the Dersites more). However, his massacre is cut short by DD, who needs his help on Dorspit. When he teleports away, Nina is able to leave the castle, and she sees herself leading a carapacian army in a Skaian cloud. She decides to start by researching the Pimp and his origins, so she commandeers a battleship to get back to LOGAC. On the way, she has a vision of Mack's dead dream self, who tells her about the Kings' deaths.

On LOFAW, Macksprite is trying desperately to kill other alternate Lars with wand beams. The Lars dodges every attack and then uses a fraymotif, sending all the beams he dodged back at Macksprite, launching him all the way to Skaia, where he meets up with Erinzillasprite. Other Alternate Lars then suddenly dies, freaking out Alpha Lars a lot. Luckily, the hog scholar finishes the translation at that moment, letting Lars go exploring to take his mind off things. After a cool expedition montage, he uncovers a lost LOSAT city.

Elsewhere, Amelia finishes up saving the bird village. She is taken to a hallowed altar where she is able to transportalize to Dorspit. There, she teams up with 0002 to look for the rest of the crew. Karkata conversely transportalizes off of Dorspit and onto LOMAG where she is greeted by Mack's crab consorts and their strange, capitalist economy.

Meanwhile, Macksprite and Erinzilla say some stuff.

Back in SPACE, the phoenix ship is suddenly struck by a meteor, knocking out the main power. The phoenixes decide to check on the engine, and depart to delve into the depths of their spaceship. Soon, they reach the bridge, where they encounter our hero, Admiral James T. Starwalker the Automated Joyride and Telegraph System. After they analyze and exhaust all other options, they proceed into the dangerous and cliche secret beast storage corridor, where they kick some ass.

Shit is also going down on Dorspit, where the DP starts the Reckoning. Dell gets un-Diamondsed and launched into the distance, the Midnight Crew is exiled, the kid babies are sent to their birthplaces, meteors rain on Skaia, and Dorspit gets set even more on fire probably. Yet, Nina remains unaware of the chaos as she and Carl try to research the Drow Pimp. They make a breakthrough when Lars sends them some glyphs from the lost city, revealed the Pimp to be an Id, an ancient Incipispherian beast of lore.

Dell crash-lands on LOMAD and probably breaks every bone in his body, so some bat consorts put him on his Quest Bed and then immediately leave to go drinking. He wakes up and messages Mack, where they catch up. On LOMAG, Mack meets Karkata, who has since dominated the market and became the richest crab on the planet. Since her original DoS session was Mack's, she agrees to help him with his quest by making a new guild. Mack flies Karkata and her new boyfriend to LOFAW to get some artifacts but Mack forgets how to land and wipes out on the grassy LOFAW plains, knocking him out. He is sent to a dream bubble.

Shit on Dorspit continues to go down as the place 0003 and Amoria are being held starts to collapse. However, they are found and saved just in time by Amoria and 0002. Meanwhile, Back in the past (yes we're in the past now, right after the intermission), 0001 struggles to fight off the Exusia. He uses lots of color synergy to dodge attacks and do some other awesome stuff. It's too awesome to see all of it though so we transition away from that. It was lucky that we even got to see as much as we did.

Now instead of the past, we're in the future, at a future exile base, with future exiled Karkata. Apparently, in the future, she's lost everything. :( She messes around with an appearifier, though, and appearifies puppy Doghearst from the past. Then, her base starts running super-fast to the Frog Temple.

In the present, the phoenixes continue Enginequest 2014. Also, Mack meets up with Emmy in the dream bubble, who gives him the lowdown about the Pimp before waking him up. Then Mack goes on a power trip after tuning yellow and causing the Forge to explode. He goes around to every planet killing various underlings, as well as giving Lars the Bloody Hell, and knocking over Dell's quest bed (without him on it). Once he reaches the summit of his echeladder, he confronts the Pimp at Dorspit, allowing 0002, 0003, Amelia, and Amoria to escape to LOMAT. The Pimp kills Mack on his Quest Crypt, causing him to ascend to God Tier. However, the Pimp's ploy to possess him afterwards somehow fails, and he is forced to retreat. Mack, having calmed down and forgotten much of what just happened, goes back to LOMAG to finish his quest, before finding it deserted. A stray crab says everyone was taken to Ishkur's lair.

On Skaia, the sprites have all gathered into groups. They unknowingly work together to destroy a giant continent with sprite powyrs before it falls on them, alerting Macksprite to Larssprite's presence. Meanwhile in space, the phoenixes deal with some problems of their own as they're caught between a huge hall of crushers and a swarm of poisonous beetles. In their haste they fail to realize that Laraminia has ESCAPED TO THE SIDE to greet the Grey Queen on Ultiera. There, she has a proposal to make.

Back as the kids, Nina and Lars determine that they must venture into Mummu's lair to continue Idquest. After trying out the curiously shitty Bloody Hell, Nina meets Lars there to venture off together! As Dell we see he is probably even more impossibly injured than he was before, so we switch to Dream Dell on LOFAW. He meets up with Erin, and they go to cremate the dead alternate pirate Lars together.

Years in the future, Karkata has a tearful reunion with Amoria and 0002 at the Frog Temple, and as with the exiles before them, they meet up with Asterion. 0001 is taken to the temple as well, and after venturing in, Asterion unites every exile to discuss his plans. He says they must use their exile stations to exile his master in the first place, so that he can be killed there.

Finally, the phoenixes reach the engine. They find a book written by one of their past lives that will help them fix the engine, but before they get started they finally notice Laraminia's absence. Therefore, they seperate to look for her. Meanwhile, Mack ventures through Ishkur's lair, and soon meets with the Denizen himself, who teleports him to LOMAD. Lars + Nina also meet with a Denizen, Mummu, who offers Lars a Choice.

Meanwhile, DP goes to talk to DD, who decides he'll make sure the session is finished soon. DP is bored, though, so he goes off to kill some guardians. On the ship, Kroblanco and Theremina are having a feelings jam when the power suddenly returns (at 100%, no less). In addition to getting a fresh new golden sheen, the ship becomes able to perform many new frivolous features, such as allowing AJTS to send a portable computer to Kroblanco.

Back as 0001, we see he has ended up at that spire Mack blew up. He tries to escape but is soon cornered by monsters and forced to jump off to escape. However, he is saved by Huginn+Muninnsprites, who take him to Skaia.

After Erin and Dell have finished cremating alt Lars, they try to share their feelings about the experience with Lars. However, Lars is having a feelings jam with Kroblanco about his Choice and can't deal with them right now. Kroblanco totally cheers up Lars with his reassurance, and then asks him out!! Then, Laraminia finds the rest of the phoenixes so they set off back to the bridge.

Nina remembers her vision about forming an army so she sets off to Skaia to start doing that. She also messages the other kids telling them to gather at Skaia to fight the Pimp. Mack goes to meet with Utu, who tells him that he cursed him because he needs to learn to help others more, and he gives him a scepter to help with that.

After DP finishes killing Emmy's grandma and Nina's grandpa, he goes off to Skaia. Nina has finished gathering an army, and the rest of the kids arrive too. Before they confront the Pimp, though, they listen to what the exiles told them and have Mack go to Dorspit and steal DD's ring before exiling the entire planet. Mack returns to help the kids confront the Pimp while years in the future Asterion's master arrives to confront the exiles, and the battles begin.

The Skaia battle starts with Nina’s army charging into battle, however, they are all almost instantly killed by the Pimp. The exile battle begins with DD’s arrival as Asterion’s master. The crew attacks him but are unable to stop him from killing all three of the remaining Midnight Crew. He then activates his specter and transforms, escalating the battle. The Skaia battle rages on, and much of Skaia is destroyed in the heat of battle, revealing the Tumor, which is almost through counting down. In the confusion, the Drow Pimp is able to deflect the kids’ attacks and get in some surprise attacks, killing them all except Mack. Angered, Mack blows them to their Quest Slabs, allowing them all to ascend. It is then that the Tumor reaches 00:00, summoning Ultiera and destroying the rest of Skaia. Mack starts the exorcism process with his scepter while Nina uses her Doom powers to enlist the ghosts of the killed carapacian warriors. The rest of the exiles are about to die to DD when Lars emerges from the Lotus Capsule and pauses DD in time. He bestows the Bloody Hell to 0001, who finishes off DD. On Ultiera, Dell uses his Blood powers to finish off the exorcism, while Lars and Mack destroy the Id that emerges, ending the Drow Pimp, and Act 4, for good.

NINA: Push the planet through that Gate up there.
MACK: the whole planet?!
NINA: I know it's a lot to ask, but it's the only way to get the jump on him. I'm sure you can do it, even if you've never done something like it before.
NINA: And remember, we're all depending on you to do this.
NINA: After you're finished, come back here and we can put our other plan into action.

MACK: ...
NINA: Please! Mack, we all know you can do it.
ERIN: Yeah! Shouldn't be too hard for you :)
DELL: totally

NINA: Excellent, we're all here!
NINA: Now, it occurred to me that there's one thing we need to do before we can defeat the Pimp.
NINA: I don't know why, but I've kept having thoughts about "exiling" a specific person.

LARS: Wait you too? I thought I was just going crazy.
ERIN: Now that you mention it, I've had some thoughts like that, too...
MACK: i don't know what you guys are talking about, i haven't had any thoughts like that.
DELL: yeah me neither
DELL: but if all three of you think its a good idea i say we do it

NINA: Alright, I'm glad that's settled.
NINA: So I quickly came up with a plan for it while we were waiting for you two to get here.
NINA: Mack, I'm sorry to ask you this, but you're the only one who can do it.
NINA: Lars's Denizen told us about your powers over wind, as well as your ability to fly.

UTU: It is an immensely powerful weapon, but only under certain conditions.
UTU: The Scepter will gain power as your decisions become more responsible.
UTU: If you fight for your own means, the Scepter will weaken.
UTU: If you fight coordinating with others, it will grow stronger.
UTU: However, the Scepter has another effect, as well.
UTU: If it is sufficiently powerful, it will begin to drain the curse out of you.

OE: Emmy has been possessed by a being known as an Id.

OE: But the remaining five of us all need to work together.
OE: You implied Erin is with you, is that true?

HT: yeah
OE: Excellent, make sure she's seeing these messages too.

OE: Do you have any idea what Mummu is?

TH: Uh my internet browser?
OE: Oh.
OE: Um, how do I put this.
OE: Mummu is probably your Denizen. Some of these books have described him as either a beast of chaos incarnate or a god of technology.
OE: Under normal circumstances I would recommend turning around and coming back later, since you're probably not nearly powerful enough to fight him...

TH: Hey!
OE: But this is urgent. We NEED to find out how to defeat the Drow Pimp, and all the sources that I can find are telling me that the answer is in this tower.
TH: So what should I do?
OE: Wait exactly where you are. Don't move a muscle.

KARKATA: I SEE A PROBLEM WITH YOUR PLAN, MACK.
KARKATA: THAT'S A PLANET. AS IN, NOT THE ONE WE'RE ON.
KARKATA: HOW ARE WE GOING TO GET ALL THE WAY UP THERE?

MACK: well, i suppose i could fly us over there.
MACK: i've done it before, i mean i had just arrived from LOGAC when i saw you.

KARKATA: SO NOT ONLY CAN YOU FLOAT, BUT YOU CAN FLY?
MACK: kind of, my magic really does all the work.
KARKATA: MAGIC, ALRIGHT. THANKS FOR PUTTING THAT IN A WAY I COULD UNDERSTAND.
MACK: cool. so... are we bringing your boyfriend?
KARKATA: DON'T WORRY, HE WON'T GET IN THE WAY.

18/04/14
"===>"

MACK: see that?
KARKATA: YEAH. THAT'S ANOTHER PLANET, RIGHT?
MACK: sure is. it's one of the other players' planets.
KARKATA: OTHER PLAYERS?
KARKATA: LIKE, OTHER DUNGEONS OF SUNNYDALE PLAYERS?

MACK: well, yes. but i mean players of the game we're in right now. it's called sburb.
KARKATA: WAIT.
KARKATA: WAIT WAIT WAIT WAIT WAIT! WE'RE IN -ANOTHER- GAME RIGHT NOW?

MACK: yeah. but it's not just a regular game. my friends and i, we're real kids. the game is real.
KARKATA: OH, WELL THAT'S A -HUGE- RELIEF.
KARKATA: I ASSUME WE STILL HAVE TO DEAL WITH ANNOYING RPG MECHANICS?

MACK: i guess. but i like rpgs. they're fun.
KARKATA: NOT WHEN YOU LIVED IN ONE.
MACK: fair point. but anyway... we could probably get some completely unique stuff from that planet, bring it back here, and make some serious cash!
MACK: and i guess we could sell some common junk too so we're competition of the Guilds.

18/04/14
"===>"

MACK: if you're the richest crab here, then you probably know a lot about money.
MACK: since you made so much.
MACK: so starting a Guild should be trivial!

KARKATA: HMM. I LIKE THE SOUND OF THIS.
KARKATA: BUT HOW WOULD WE GET AHEAD OF THE COMPETITION?
KARKATA: EVERY GUILD SELLS THE SAME CRAP, AND IT'S NOT LIKE WE HAVE SOMETHING TO SELL THAT THE OTHER CRABS DON'T.

MACK: oh yes we do!

18/04/14
"===>"

MACK: wait, i got something.
MACK: so the Guilds are in a stalemate, correct?

KARKATA: YEAH.
MACK: and you said earlier that you're the richest crab on the planet.
KARKATA: HELL YEAH.
MACK: well, why don't you start up your own Guild?
MACK: maybe we could get them to join forces against a common threat.

15/04/14
"===>"

MACK: ok, anyway. here's the plan.
MACK: you use your vast fortunes to buy out all the Guilds.
MACK: and i get back to leveling up.

KARKATA: WOAH THERE, STALLION.
KARKATA: I SAID I'D HELP YOU OUT A LITTLE, NOT "TAKE ALL MY MONEY".

MACK: i'll let you name the new Guild "karkatacorp"!
MACK: or something. you can choose it.

KARKATA: NO.
MACK: fine.
KARKATA: LET'S GO TO PLAN B.
MACK: what's plan b?
KARKATA: I DUNNO, YOU'RE THE ONE WHO THINKS OF THE PLANS. I JUST FUND THEM.
MACK: alright, then let's do some brainstorming.

15/04/14
"===>"

KARKATA: YEAH, BUT I'M NOT EVEN FROM AROUND HERE.
MACK: where are you from?
KARKATA: LONG STORY SHORT, SOME DUMBASS PLACE CALLED SUNNYDALE.
MACK: sunnydale?! as in, dungeons of?
KARKATA: YEAH, THAT'S THE PLACE.
MACK: that's a video game! i was playing it just yesterday!
MACK: but my computer broke, so i don't know what happened to my character 0001.

KARKATA: HOLD THE FUCK UP
KARKATA: "YOUR CHARACTER" 0001?
KARKATA: WHAT ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT? 0001 IS A GOOD FRIEND OF MINE. CHIVALROUS ROUGE? SILLY HAT WITH A RED FEATHER?

MACK: that's the guy! i was playing a tutorial session of dungeons of sunnydale, i left to go do something, and i never checked it again before my computer broke!
KARKATA: WAIT.
KARKATA: WAIT WAIT WAIT WAIT WAIT. YOU MEAN TO TELL ME
KARKATA: THAT I, KARKATA, COME FROM YOUR SESSION OF THE GAME? AND THAT YOU'RE THE PERSON WHO CREATED 0001?

MACK: i guess so.
KARKATA: I SUDDENLY UNDERSTAND EVERYTHING.
KARKATA: IN THAT CASE I'D BE GLAD TO HELP YOU OUT A LITTLE.

MACK: hey, thanks! oh, who's that guy who awkwardly scuttled over here?
KARKATA: WHO, HIM? HE'S MY BOYFRIEND BOYFRIENDKATA.

15/04/14
"Mack: Talk to crab."

MACK: uh, hey.
KARKATA: SUP.
MACK: you look... important. would you happen to be important?
KARKATA: HELLS YEAH, I'M IMPORTANT. I'M A BIGSHOT HERE, BECAUSE NOBODY UNDERSTANDS CAPITALISM EXCEPT ME APPARENTLY.
MACK: so you're rich?
KARKATA: YOU'RE LOOKING AT THE RICHEST CRAB ON THE PLANET. WHAT'S YOUR NAME, KID?
MACK: uh, i'm mack. this is my planet.
KARKATA: YOUR PLANET? NO, I'M PRETTY SURE THIS IS MY PLANET. NOT OFFICIALLY, OF COURSE, BUT I'M BASICALLY THE MOST INFLUENTIAL PERSON HERE.
MACK: oh really? then, maybe you'd be willing to help me?
KARKATA: WITH WHAT? WHY WOULD I HELP YOU?
MACK: well, i'm on a quest to unite the guilds, apparently.
KARKATA: YOU DO KNOW THAT THAT WOULD PROBABLY THREATEN MY ABSOLUTE POWER, RIGHT?
MACK: oh. yeah, i guess.
MACK: but, uh... does it help that apparently i'm the mage of breath?

KARKATA: IS THAT SUPPOSED TO MEAN SOMETHING TO ME?
MACK: well you're a crab, right? i thought they knew all about that stuff.

NINA: The Freudian concept?
NINA: I'll admit I don't really know much about psychology at all.

CARL: Freudian?
NINA: Sigmund Freud, he was a psychologist who first proposed the idea of the Id and some other concepts.
CARL: Sir Knight, the Id is a very real beast! It has haunted the darkest nightmares of the bravest leaders throughout the Incipisphere. Perhaps your Freud got his idea from the creature.
CARL: Anyway, even when this text was written, apparently nobody had ever seen an Id. This is probably because the majority of the time they are incorporeal. However, the text also mentions that there is a way to exorcise an Id from its host. The problem is it doesn't go into any detail on what this process is.
NINA: Well, we could probably have Lars do some more field work for us.

CARL: Okay! So, the first picture is straightforward enough, all of the glyphs are still in use.

NINA: Alright. General Carl, what have you found out so far?
CARL: Well, not much, Sir Knight. While I can read these hieroglyphs, none of these tomes detail exactly what the Drow Pimp is, although there are several creatures I suspect it may be. The Pimp was mostly a legend of ancient times, and many works from then have been lost to the ages.
NINA: We're going to need more help, then.
