anthcul158 set off to explore this cave to see how it was different from the cave on the other island, and found two things.  First, she found another person from the islands, Destin, valiant leader of the Keepers of Elysium.  Though goofy in nature, he gave off an aura of confidence and strength, which is to say, it was apparent that he was a great warrior.  Second, the group found a red dragon in the cave, and Bob the Blob did not seem all to happy to see the dragon, which anthcul158 picked up on.  The dragon didn’t immediately notice them, which perhaps was for the best.

After wandering through the cave system for what seemed like forever, he emerged back into the outside world, near a group of mountains.  Looking around and exploring this new area carefully, he stumbled upon an armored bear and a mongoose, but made sure to keep his distance.  The bear was wearing armor, which he innately knew was incredibly powerful, and not worth engaging.  Carefully, he tracks the bear and mongoose at a close enough distance to notice them returning to what looked like an entirely eco-friendly base with some familiar faces from back when everyone was on the initial island.  He was pretty sure this was the GREEN TEAM he had heard so much about.

LooseLips continues to gather resources, keeping in touch with the Green Team as one of the islanders who spent a good bit of his time keeping up with the guards and the other teams.  Unfortunately, GreenTeamLeader didn’t seem to think the two’s intentions aligned, and declined LooseLips’s offer for the time being.

Vaclav manages to scoop up some cranberries as he approaches Dann Tuggles, but Dann Tuggles seems to preoccupied gathering ore to respond, which is odd.  Vaclav decides to bolster his [combat] a bit by punching trees while he waited for the oncoming zmobies.

captainawesome scoured the jail cell for any details or objects that might be of any use, leaving no stone unturned.  …in fact, pretty much the only object in the jail cell was an unturned stone.  There were small splinters of wood laying in the ground, probably from the wooden frame of the bed that was bolted to the wall he rested on.  The bars seemed to be made of youcan’tbreakthem-ium, which was pretty unfortunate, and the lock wasn’t so much of a lock as it was level across the room that was pulled, releasing the gate that was presumably locked shut otherwise.  There were roughly 1562 blocks of stone in his cell, and there was a tiny rat in the corner that looked rather sick and old.  Also, his bed had a pellow, which was exactly what it sounded like.  He even confirmed it with a guard when the guard had given it to him.

“Alright, here’s your pellow.”

“…you mean pillow, right?”

“Yeah, pellow.  The thing you sleep on.”

“You keep saying pellow, not pillow.  It’s a pillow, right?”

“Listen, do you want the pellow or not?”

Begrudgingly, he accepted the pellow, which looked exactly like a pillow except that he was almost 100% positive that it cackled at him with a sinister laugh when he wasn’t looking, and he didn’t want to put his head anywhere near.  Other than that, there wasn’t anything in the cell;  The guards came by twice a day to give him a bowl of water and a stale loaf of bread, which they slid under the gate in the small gap that existed there.

Day 17: Esoteric Order of Bacon

Team Members:

Captain Itylhive
parrotfanatic
Antiblematic
FeralPrince

As the team arrived on the new island and decided to explore, which didn’t take quite as long as they had originally thought due to its small size.  Though Itylhive was keeping an eye out for various resources while Parrotfanatic was leaving behind what literary critics would refer to as an epic across the ground as the walked, a fecal The Odyssey so to speak.  Unfortunately, or perhaps fortunately but just strangely, the island was pretty much just all row of wheat.  Wheat upon wheat upon wheat upon wheat.  It was ridiculous how much wheat there was, if you hadn’t seen it with your own eyes, you wouldn’t believe someone telling you exactly how much wheat there was.

For exploring the island, your team gains the [right to name it].

Meanwhile, Antiblematic was focused on the zmobies that had infested the land.  He could feel their presence, as is expected from someone so in tune with the mysterystuff of the world.  But what exactly was their purpose?  What was their calling?  As Antiblematic tried to find what force drove the zmobies.  Strangely, their intentions were clouded with very potent apathy.  After all, they were the living idle!  They had so much quantity apathy, they were pretty much just all apathy.  It was ridiculous how apathetic they were, if you hadn’t felt it yourself, you wouldn’t believe someone telling you exactly how apathetic they were.  Still, there had to be a reason, and Antiblematic fought through all the apathy much like one fights through thick fields of wheat.

And there was!

It seemed that though they originally had no purpose, there was one zmobie nijna among them, and its desires were so strong that it somehow managed to dispel the apathy and force the zmobies into its bidding.  If he wanted to control the zmobies, he was going to need to take out the zmobie nijna, which wouldn’t be easy…

Day 17: The Awesome Squad

Team Members:

Captain Ossa
Bell
Mike
Blu
Mostly
JohnnyViral
A random guard (NPC)

As Bell started asking around about the boat, he realized that nobody seemed to know where the boat had gone, which was troubling.  Mike and Ossa, presumably occupied in their work inside of the team’s base, sent Bell and JohnnyViral to look for the boat for the time being.  The two scoured the coastline until the sun started to set, but the boat didn’t seem anywhere on the island, which meant that someone had sailed away on it?  Or that it had sunk?  It was hard to tell if the boat had disappeared mysteriously, or if they just weren’t looking in quite the right places…

Perhaps in preparation for a search for the boat, or perhaps purely for practice and personal interest, Mostly was focusing intently on improving his [agility] through the practice of various ninja arts, utilizing the smoke bombs he had created.

As Blu asked the guard if he could think of any songs that might attract an armored bear, the guard rolled his eyes.

“Why would you want to do that, man?  Those things will just maul you to death.”

But Blu was insistent; He had seen the armored bear and now wanted nothing more than to call to it.  After all, what could be more metal than an armored bear?

“Listen, man.  I don’t friggin’ know – what are you asking – bear call songs?  If you really want to get the bear’s attention man, just like, follow your heart or something.”

Blu couldn’t really figure out if the guard just really didn’t care, or was actually trying to give him sound advice.  As was usually the case, the guards were not the most useful people in the islands.

 

Day 16: Keepers of Elysium

Team Members:

Captain Destin
Nirkit
A random guard

In desperate need to rest from their daring adventure, priority numero uno was making sure that Destin was well.  Nirkit’s first instinct was, of course, to completely destroy the old man’s house – or at least the interior of it.  After turning over a pot of noodles, smashing a ceramic cat, and breaking a gong, Nirkit realized that even all of these stereotypical possession could not for certain confirm the ethnicity of the old man, and that would haunt him forever.

Or at least, haunt him until he found some sort of herbs.  Normally, calling something an “herb” wouldn’t be enough to confirm it as a useful proponent of practicing medicine, but most video games would tell you that non-descriptive herbs were almost assuredly restorative.  Between the herbs and I guess Destin sitting there reflecting on himself and his actions as a mean of physical therapy (read: Destin isn’t a doctor) Destin managed to fully recover as Nirkit whisked them away on a romanti- er, heroic journey to the Eastern Bumfuck Island.

The forest spiral didn’t seem like much of a maze from above, since it seemed to just spiral inwards and, based on a combination of his psychic reading and the equivalent guard-conversation of reading a newspaper, heard lead somehow to the center of another forest.  Landing there would probably cause some sort of spacial paradox, so he decided to set the boat down near the cave.  Back on the water, Nirkit was pretty exhausted from all the “navigating” he’d been doing, and once he was assured that Destin would be alright, he collapsed for the day from exhaustion.

RedSunEternal puts the finishing touches on his halberd, noting that the craftsmanship involved was incredible and that the hard work really had paid off.  Happy with the results, he explored the caves, careful not to get lost as he made a mental map of the caverns, but they simply  extend too far for him to adaquately explore them in just one day.  Still, the caves are fairly easy to map;  fundamentally, one extends slightly north west, one extends slight south east, and one extends far north east.

anthcul158 and Bob the Blob decide to venture deep into the forest.  At the end of the forest, they emerge on what looks like the same island, but after consulting with a guard, they realize is instead Eastern Bumfuck Island;  Somehow the two forests are mysteriously connected.  The new island looks exactly the same, but the cave might hold something different than the slime kingdom, and the team the Keepers of Elysium is docked nearby.

Mike Burns, horrified at what had happened to Hawkers, who seemed not all that worried about it, made sure to heal him with a hug.  Hey, it worked in Super Mario RPG, it can work in – YEAH I DON’T KNOW HOW HE HUGS A GHOST EITHER.  Regardless, once Hawkers is all rested, Mike Burns decides to focus on combat, to protect his ghostly guy gam if anything like this should happen in the future.

Vaclav manages to find a tree with a little difficulty, as the island is mostly covered in treeless steppes.  Once atop the tree, he notices that in the rocky steps (not steppes) of the island, Dann Tuggles has started constructing a basic shelter, as well as a forge for which to, well, forge things.  He see Dann Tuggles poking around the rocky steppes, collecting various ore, and decides that if he wants to seek shelter on this island, Hobo Dann may be his best bet.

LooseLips continues to collect resources, though when The Awesome Squad starts looking for their boat his does take notice to the situation.

As captain awesome continues to kick chalk lines in, presumably giving someone a really hard time in the future, a bunch of guards show up with weapons, and look not too pleased.  At first he tries to be nice to the guards, but they quickly surround him and over-power his non-masturbatory side, knocking him unconscious and dragging him off of the island.  The next time he would awaken, he was in a small stone jail cell and had a terrible headache.
