"Wait, we're finally doing this?" Burned calls out, so surprised in his mental landscape he accidentally nudges the drawer which spills forth everywhere.

"...I'll fix that later. Alright, to battle! Remember folks, only magic works... Or the power of friendship, of course- Let's go best bud!" Burned says, trying to hit the spectral figure with Mr. Rock, hoping he catches along to the tune of only magic working...

Eaten hurriedly shoves the ribcages back into his inventory, and rushes to join the others in combat. Jumping to the front, he stabs the ghost in the belly with his magic spear.

Yup. You can carry whatever you want in either hand, but it'll be an action to switch them for something else.

Wakes will screw everyone over right away and destroy everything they ever hoped for!

He transfers the chaos pool energy into the ghost.

Belief raises his hands in praise to Maglubiyet, then channels a bolt of lightning at the ghost.

There's a hole in the wall to the outside near the pool of wonder, so I'll channel atmospheric electricity from ionised air :P

That's... Not the outside. We don't know what that is, really. Also it's in another room.

Hmm, looks like stars in a night sky. Alright, I'll think of something else.

Turn 385

"Wait, we're finally doing this? ...I'll fix that later. Alright, to battle! Remember folks, only magic works... Or the power of friendship, of course- Let's go best bud!"

Burned is so distracted by the prospect of FINALLY attacking the ghost guy that he spills his mind-junk all over the place again in his enthusiasm.

"You have decided you wish to challenge me then? Very well."

The ghost spreads its arms wide and summons four swirling motes of light as a greatsword appears in its hands.

The goblins step forward to attack!

Ok, so I realised I need a little more info from you guys. If you want to attack with your weapons, you can do so. If you want to expend the magic that's stored in them, it will cost you 1MP AND you need to tell me which slot you're spending from. If you've already told me all this stuff, that's fine. If not, please just clarify what you want to do and I'll get the update out for you.

Burned's Mr.Rock doesn't have any magic slots (as far as he's aware), but he's hoping that Mr. Rock is awesome enough to realize this and hurt regardless.

Yeah, Mr. Rock is a little bit special...

Spider: I'm not sure if you've used magic much since you joined the game, but you can basically remove "energy" types from any available source for 1MP. It's completely flexible, so will work as long as what you suggest is even vaguely plausible. However, it is a zero-sum system so be a little careful of what you take :)

I've only got light stored in a slot, but I can pull from the environment or attempt to do other effects?

Yup, the environment, monsters, other players (I'd ask first!), whatever you like. Someone also drove themselves berserk once by accident very early in the game, when trying to calm a snake, so "emotional" (status) effects are also possible. The magic system has no rules really beyond the zero-sum thing and spending MPs to make it work, so go nuts :)

Hmmm, I think I've only ever stored energy in slots and released it later. I'd like try to draw the heat from where the ghosty-man is, with the intent of dealing cold damage? If that would endanger other goblins, I'll stick with hitting him with the sword and unleashing the light into him to see what that does.

I mean, if they've already swarmed him. If I can get it off first, I'll try it, but if everyone is right up on him, not gonna risk it.

My greatsword can't hold magic so just standard attack for now.

((Also, don't forget to add my magic bag to my inventory please :D ))

I'll just stab him for now. If that doesn't work, I'll think of something else next turn.

Turn 385

Image

The ghost flicks his hands and the red orbs explodes into the goblins with a burst of flame. Everyone except Wakes takes 1 damage from the blast, despite their armour!

The goblins retaliate:

Tugs attacks the ghost with his harpoon, unleashing the chaos energy of the pool in glorious synchrony with Wakes! They manage to produce a small snowstorm and a confused-looking minion. Splits casts the light magic from his blade at the ghost with a dazzling flash! It looks like it's struggling to see...

Belief and Eaten leap forward and attack the ghost, but their weapons pass straight through it.

Burned lets rip with Mr. Rock, but the mace passes straight through the ghost with no apparent effect. Burned isn't completely sure that the frustration he feels from the miss is entirely his...

Finds meditates and then heads down towards the battle.
