And now Part 10 of the Traitor Game Essentials representation of Traitor Game VII: A Galaxy Far, Far Away. In this installment, the characters do more research, and the Traitors strike again.

[COLOR="Green"]"[B]Teen Goku[/B] is my vote."[/COLOR] said Martin, with his reverberating alien voice. He chose not to elaborate further.

He then gave Courage a cold, hard stare through his sun goggles. An involuntary sneezing reflex kicked in, and with a vicious hiss, Martin revealed his long reptilian tongue to the pink dog:

Courage was horrified at the death of Kenny and the giant beast below. His ears shot straight up, he gritted his teeth, and every muscle in his body tensed.

Then, while looking around in this heigthened fearful state, he caught the stare of Martin, who released a snake-looking tongue.

As he skyrocketed into the air, landing behind the skull-chested fellow. Courage hugged his leg and shivered, scared out of his mind.

As we worked our way back to the library, I waved "hello" to the other people there and put on as brave a smile as I could muster. I got to thinking-- 'if something happened to my team of slayerettes... or to Kennedy, what would I do?' I have to pull together. I'm a leader now-- at least in my home dimension. It's a role I've had to play before when Buffy died, but the big, ginormous difference is that I had my friends to help me stay level.

Friends or not, I've got to do anything and everything I can! I mean, these guys are working really hard to try and find something to help. I need to work harder, myself and try to stop any more murders from taking place.

"So, um, has anyone found anything interesting or useful?"

After hearing a few replies, I started to scan the shelves. This may take quite awhile. I went into 'full focus' mode looking for answers.

[QUOTE=moonknight2099;4433929][I]After leaving my room I hear Quinn ask for my help. I know Al and Ziggy think it's a bad idea to talk to him. But it wouldn't be the first time I didn't listen to them.[/I]

"Sure Quinn I can look out for you. You say your timer there, doesn't work. Uh most people don't know this about me but I know a thing or two about quantum physics. Maybe you could explain exactly how that device lets you slide through dimentions. I might even be able to help you, if you don't mind. I may be able to come up with some theories you might have missed."

"Oh and I think you maybe right, [B]Darth Vader [/B]looks guilty to me."[/QUOTE]

I was slightly taken aback by the rather articulate Punisher:

"Uh, yeah, ok. Basically what's going on is this, there are wormholes or dimensional rifts all around us, even possibly right now. Some are accessable, some aren't. What the timer does is allows access to the, accessable ones. The draw back is that when I programmed it originally it kept the coordinates for my Earth, but when forced in to a hasty slide, it reset all the coordinates so I lost my home Earth. Now that combined with a constant reset where if I miss the slide the timer que's in, it resets for 25 years. Now that has made for a interesting trip. But as far as I can tell the only good thing about our situation with the timer stuck I don't think the reset is going to kick in. Hopefully when I slide out of here it will lock on my friends and guide me to them. I've been working on something to find their chrono and quantum signatures that way if I can make it compatable with my timer I should be able to lock them in and slide either with them, or to them. I just hope they're ok."

I started to examine the shelves-- there were a bunch of dusty books lying around, mostly it was stuff like "Jabba of Green Gables", "How to Win Lackeys and Influence Jedi," and "The Joy Hutt Club." Ugh. Where does he shop?! Jabbazon.com? heh.

...

I make my own fun.

Oh hey! I just found something-- oh. All I've found is a program stuck between "Darth of a Salesman" and "Harry Skywalker and the Half-Ewok Prince"-- jeez. Doesn't this guy own any REAL books?

Ooo! Wait! The program is of some rock group called "The Doomtations." Apparently they played a concert here.

...and one of the featured songs was "Back to the Basics-- The Traitor Game Theme." I guess crappy titles aren't regulated to the books in this library.

I decide to go check out what I can find on these 'Doomtations' via the 'net. I want to be thorough and verify a connection before I get everyone's hopes up.

Cologne had been spending much of her time in the library, as it was as good a place for a base of operations as any. She noted Willow's interest in the Doomtations.

"The Doomtations are a quintet of robots that were encouraged to form a singing group." Cologne told Willow. "From what I've heard, they've been very successful in the dimension they've chosen to settle in. And people from several dimensions have been asking them to perform."

"Darth Jubba was thinking of inviting them here to do their version of 'Limbo Rock' the first time someone got banished, but when Immortus vetoed the use of Limbo, the Doomtations accepted another invitation instead."

"In any case, they came about as a result of occurences in the previous Traitor Game." Cologne paused. "You just never know what might come out of these games."

"This is far from the first Traitor Game." Cologne added. "I was introduced to them two games previous, as one of the players. In the game following that one and preceeding this one, another resident of my dimension was summoned to take part."

"You should keep in mind that just about anyone can be a Traitor in these Traitor games. In the one I was a player in, Archie Andrews was one of the Traitors. Traitor Game hosts have ways of making people do things they might not otherwise do." With that remark, Cologne headed off back to the corner of the room.


The Purple Skull 02-24-2007 04:23 PM

OOC: Hehe, the Doomtations. They were so fun to use in the previous game.

BIC:

Traitor Game Announcer: Welcome back Traitor Game fans! Tonight, the first banishment will be held! As we look at the voting board, we see that Darth Vader is leading the pack with 8 votes, while Tricky Dick Dastardly remains second with 3 votes, and tied for third with 2 votes are Deadpool and Emma Frost.

When we last left off, Dick Dastardly cast a vote for that Merc-With-A-Mouth, Deadpool, and he tried to punctuate his vote by setting a trap for him. Unfortunately, his plan backfired. However, it doesn't look like Dick is going to stop with the traps anytime soon. What do you have planned now? Is that dynamite you have there?

[COLOR="Purple"]Very astute of you, Mr. Announcer. Now watch and learn.

Excuse me. Yes, you there. Deadpool, right? You see, it's getting a bit chilly in the palace, and I would like to start up the fireplace to keep everybody warm. However, I seem to be having some difficulty in lighting the fireplace. Would you mind rubbing these two sticks together?[/COLOR]

(In actuality, the two sticks are dynamite with the fuse already lit. Deadpool takes the sticks and begins rubbing them together.)

[COLOR="Purple"]Thank you, Deadpool. Excuse me for a minute. I'll be right back.[/COLOR]

(Dick Dastardly runs behind a wall.)

[COLOR="Purple"]In a matter of seconds, the sticks of dynamite will explode and that little traitor will be incapacitated! Hahaha![/COLOR]

[IMG]http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b385/Orlando716/dastardly.gif[/IMG]

TG Announcer: You fiend!

[COLOR="Purple"]Why thank you. At times, you can be far too kind.[/COLOR]

(Deadpool is still rubbing the sticks together.)

[COLOR="Purple"]C'mon! C'mon! Explode already![/COLOR]

[I]15 minutes later....[/I]

(Deadpool continues to rub the sticks of dynamite.)

(Losing his patience) [COLOR="Purple"]Drat! How inferior can you be! It doesn't take a genius to rub two sticks together and start a fire. Gimme that![/COLOR]

(Takes the the dynamite and starts rubbing them together. Deadpool runs away)

[B]KABOOM![/B]

(In a woozy state) [COLOR="Purple"]See? How hard was that?[/COLOR]

(Hits the ground with a loud thud.)

Marcus was also looking through some of the books as well. But so far, he found nothing that would actually help. As he looked around more he found a large, hardcover book titled " The art of Warfare".

"Looks interesting" Marcus said to himself.


tangentman 02-24-2007 05:09 PM

Emma Frost casually approached the Rogue Watcher when called to plead her case. While talking with Watchers hardly qualified as daily routine, even for Frost, she didn't feel overwhelmed in his presence. After dealing with the Phoenix force three times in her life, cosmic beings didn't automatically intimidate at first sight. Checking her gloves, Emma looked up at the self-appointed judge.

[COLOR="Magenta"]"If this tedious hearing is really necessary, let's get it over with quickly. I'm a master telepath in my own world and this one as well. Dropping a boulder on the boy is hardly worth chipping my nails. When that helmeted imbecile with the rasping voice accused me of murdering that little nitwit, I knew he must have been desperate to cover his own guilt."[/COLOR] Emma shot a contemptuous look back at Vader.

[COLOR="magenta"]"I have killed in my lifetime. I make no apologies for my past. I've spent several years now atoning for my...colorful youth...with my [i]actions[/i]. Of course, as Cologne already pointed out, my life in my home reality has little bearing on the course of this game. Thus, I won't offer a shaky defense with my reputation as a teacher and X-Man."[/COLOR]

Emma's lips turned up in a confident smile. [COLOR="magenta"]"No, I shall simply say that dropping a boulder on a victim lacks [i]style[/i]. Anyone who truly knows me would know that I'd never degrade myself with such unglamorous methods. If I wanted to murder Wesley Crusher, I could have come up with at least 125 alternate ways that wouldn't reek of vulgarity."[/COLOR]

After speaking her piece, Emma nodded tersely at the Watcher and resumed her place among the other players. She strode over to Darth Vader and clucked her tongue. [COLOR="magenta"]"That was a nice tale about 'fighting the good fight' in an alternate universe with your son. Utter rubbish, but still a nice alibi. What better cover for [b]Darth Vader[/b] to hide his actions than to offer a backstory that plays against our expectations? I'll cast my vote against [b]Vader[/b]--for that reason and one other. I [b]loathe[/b] George Lucas' films."[/COLOR]

[I]I think I may be right. This guy could be my ticket home.[/I]

"Wow that's fascinating. Um let me see if I have this right."

[I]I quickly head over to the library. After searching through the books I find a blank note pad and a pencil. I take it back over to Quinn. I begin writting out the equations for what he has described. [/I]

"Does this look about right? What your describing is amazing. It's the most incredable thing I have heard since since I started Project Q....."

[I]I stopped myself. Al maybe right. I really don't know much about this guy. I still might tell him, but not yet. I'll get to know him better first. Make sure I can trust him, before I let him know who I really am.[/I]

"....hmm. Why don't you look over these figures. Write out some of your own, and we will see if we can come up with something."

Sorry for being gone so long everyone. My mom took away my Laptop but I just got it back.

Luffy grabbed two doorknobs and began to walk backwards.

".....ROCKET!!!!" Luffy took his foot off the ground and was sent soaring through the hall. He reached the end and bounced off a wall into another hall. As he bounced his way down the hall he remembered something....

"I'M STILL HUNGRY!!!!!"

Darth Jubba the Sith Hutt watched all of these events from his office. Emma Frost's claim that she despised the 'Star Wars' movies amused Jubba greatly.

Darth Jubba decided to amuse himself by using the dimensional device to steal more food. While stealing okonomiyaki from Ukyo was amusing, there were others who were also amusing targets...

---

Jughead Jones was just about to bite into the burger he had just ordered when it vanished right in his hands. "Where'd it go?"

---

"Garfield! I made lasagna!" called out Jon Arbuckle.

Garfield had just had a particularly rough Monday. He had been caught outside in the rain, been hit with several pies, and been forced to take a bath. To top it off, his attempt at pushing Odie off the table had only resulted in him falling off.

But the lasagna was the light at the end of the tunnel. It would be worth all that hardship just to conclude the day with his favorite meal. Garfield eagerly zoomed into the kitchen. "[COLOR="DarkOrange"]Lasagna! Mmmm!"[/COLOR]

But before the fat orange feline could even take one bite, the lasagna abruptly disappeared. "[COLOR="DarkOrange"]This is not happening! This has to be a bad dream![/COLOR]"

Garfield then looked at the calendar. "[COLOR="DarkOrange"]I HATE MONDAYS![/COLOR]"

---

A construction worker was taking his break, when the Burger King mascot suddenly appeared as if out of nowhere. But just as the King was handing the worker a Triple Whopper, the Whopper suddenly vanished. Both the King and the worker shook their heads, completely confused.

---

Darth Jubba laughed at the confusion of the people he had stolen from. Of course, all that food would help to re-stock the kitchen. Sure, he could just take food that no one would miss, but he needed to have some fun every now and then.

Courage had let go of the man's leg before he walked away. He decided to learn a bit more about the man he had been clinging to. He returned to his quarters and once again contacted his computer back home.

[font="Courier New"]UGH. AND I WAS JUST ABOUT TO TAKE A NAP. WHAT DO YOU WANT?[/font]

Courage typed out his first question, which concerned the strange man he had seen in the other room earlier.

[font="Courier New"]IT SOUNDS LIKE YOU HAVE A TIME LEAPER IN THE PARTY. THE MAN YOU SAW IS UNDOUBTEDLY HIS GUIDE.[/font]

Courage proceeded to provide related details and ask related questions.

[font="Courier New"]YOU WANT TO KNOW WHAT A TIME LEAPER IS? I HARDLY SEE HOW THAT INFORMATION IS RELEVANT. BY YOUR DESCRIPTION, HOWEVER, IT SEEMS THIS LEAPER HAS FOUND HIS WAY INTO THE BODY OF THE PUNISHER, A COMIC BOOK CHARACTER. CAN I REST NOW?[/font]

With that, Courage turned off the watch-device once more. He thought for a second, and then began to leave the room. As he did so, though, he began to think of the Reptoid that had been haunting him since the start. It was then that he found inspiration.

Knowing that the alien ate rats, the pink dog decided to catch some. He hurried into the kitchen, pulled some mousetraps from the pocket in his fur, and placed them behind some boxes in the lower cabinets.

Wanting to know more about this Punisher character, Courage hurried to the library and began searching on a computer.

Cologne nodded. "So that's nine votes for Darth Vader. And he has yet to give anyone a good reason why they shouldn't vote for him. Time is running out. So if he has anything to say in his defense, he should say it now."

At that point, Darth Jubba's voice spoke out over the PA system. "[COLOR="Sienna"]The banishment is only hours away! I expect to see you all then.[/COLOR]"

"[COLOR="Sienna"]You are probably wondering just where the banished players are going to be banished [I]to[/I]. Limbo is out, and the Sarlaac and the Great Pit of Carkoon are gone. But I have found just the right place. Those I send there are sure to have a miserable experience. I won't tell you just yet where it is, but I'll give you this clue.[/COLOR]"

At that point, a snippet from a song began playing. "...[I]where it bubbles all the time like a giant carbonated soda. S-O-D-A soda.[/I]" The snippet abruptly stopped there.

"[COLOR="Sienna"]And no, you won't have any spacecraft or other means of leaving there until the game's over. And Vader, I expected better of you. I would have thought you'd have some better defense for yourself. Perhaps I should have summoned Darth Maul instead.[/COLOR]"

There was a pause. "[COLOR="Sienna"]Am I admitting that Darth Vader is one of my Imperial Stormtroopers? Or am I just expressing my general disappointment with him? You'll just have to wait until the banishment to find out! Ho ho ho ho![/COLOR]" And with that, the transmission over the PA system ended.

Well, guys, I'm back from the Con. Chris Lang, I'm guessing you're sending people to Dagobah, and love the Weird Al usage. Secondly, speaking of Darth Maul, I met Ray Park himself today at the con. Got a picture taken. I'll probably post it up in the game in a few days. It was so much fun, I got to meet David Finch, artist for the new MK series. My bro got to meet Steve McNiven, J. Michael Strazynski (or however you spell it), and some other people. It was awesome, cause i got like 27 MK comics, so my collection's growing. Had a blast. I'll post some Dr. Cox stuff later. Adios.

I make my own fun.

Oh hey! I just found something-- oh. All I've found is a program stuck between "Darth of a Salesman" and "Harry Skywalker and the Half-Ewok Prince"-- jeez. Doesn't this guy own any REAL books?

Ooo! Wait! The program is of some rock group called "The Doomtations." Apparently they played a concert here.

OOC: Glad you enjoyed yourself at the Con. And I'm glad you enjoyed the Weird Al reference. Of course, those who've heard the 'Yoda' song easily guessed it was Dagobah. I had no idea that Ray Park was at that convention, so my note's passing reference to Darth Maul is just a coincidence, I assure you.

Only an hour and a half before the banishment!

Chris Lang 02-24-2007 10:43 PM

Cologne watched as the others did their research in the library. She had already done her research on all the participants in the game, but just in case there was something she felt the others truly needed to know, she would be there to point them in the right direction.

Darth Jubba the Sith Hutt had proven to be every bit as nasty as his cousin Jabba, if not more so. Cologne was now convinced that her decision to accept his challenge was right. She could only hope that the players were also up to the challenges that they were to face. After the next banishment, her chosen Rebel Alliance members would be allowed another guess. Perhaps they would make a correct guess this time.

But Cologne knew that there would be another murder not long after the banishment. And this time, there would be no clues as to who the victim would be.

Cologne looked at the others researching in silence. She knew that many of them had probably guessed that unpleasant truth. They just didn't want to be the ones to say it.

After a lengthy silence, Cologne spoke.

"The banishment fast approaches. I doubt any of you have become fond of Darth Vader, but it looks as if now is the time to say your goodbyes to him."

Deadpool grabs the hyper clock and accidentally crushes it.

Darth Jubba's voice spoke over the PA system. "[COLOR="Sienna"]It is time for banishment. Come, let us meet in the Entertainment Center[/COLOR]."

As the group assembled in the Entertainment Center, the Max Rebo Band was just finishing a spirited rendition of 'Lapti Nek'. "[COLOR="Sienna"]And so, have you reached a conclusion?" [/COLOR]Darth Jubba said.

"The players have decided to vote off Darth Vader." Cologne said.

"[COLOR="Sienna"]So be it, then. Vader, you truly disappoint me. I thought perhaps we could rule the Galaxy together. But I see that next to me, you are an over-rated Padawan. To Dagobah you will go, then. You may be the real Vader someday later, but now you're just a small fry.[/COLOR]"

"[COLOR="Red"]NOOOOoOOOOO!!![/COLOR]" Vader cried. And with that, Darth Vader was banished.

"[COLOR="Sienna"]Darth Vader has been banished to the planet Dagobah[/COLOR]." Darth Jubba explained. "[COLOR="Sienna"]It's a world filled mostly with swamp, and swampy land. That is where all you eliminated players will go, even those who have been killed. My device is also capable of restoring you to life in duplicate bodies, which will be sent to Dagobah the moment the kill takes place. In the meantime, your previous bodies or what's left of them -- will remain here to be examined by those still in the game[/COLOR]."

Cologne spoke up. "You seem to have forgotten to mention something. You did not say whether or not Darth Vader was one of your Imperial Stormtroopers."

"[COLOR="Sienna"]Oh, did I? How silly of me! You wanted to know if he was one of the Traitors? Well, the answer is...NO! Ho ho ho ho! You have guessed [I][U]wrong[/U][/I], and it's only a matter of time before my Imperial Stormtroopers strike again[/COLOR]."

"[COLOR="Sienna"]In fact, they may have already struck. Has anyone seen [B]Goku[/B] lately?[/COLOR]"

Many of the group shook their heads. At that point, the trap door in the Entertainment Room opened again. "[COLOR="Sienna"]Look down there![/COLOR]" Darth Jubba exclaimed.

Very little could be seen in the Rancor pit. The Rancor was nowhere in sight, and the vomit had long since been cleaned up. But there were bones present. Some of the bones appeared to be brand-new, as if they had recently been spat out.

"[COLOR="Sienna"]Ah, that would be what's left of [B]Goku[/B]! You see, Goku wanted to be here early for the banishment, but he was surprised by my Imperial Stormtroopers. They dropped a huge pile of needles on him, and scared him unconscious. They then rolled him into the pit, where the Rancor was already waiting for him with open arms...or should I say an open mouth. Before Goku could do anything, he was already being chewed to pieces![/COLOR] "

"But...the Rancor's dead...isn't it?" someone asked.

"[COLOR="Sienna"]Yes, the Rancor who you saw earlier died, but I summoned another Rancor from an alternate Star Wars universe to replace it! My Imperial Stormtroopers really wanted to use the Rancor in one of their kills, so I felt I had to oblige them.[/COLOR]"

"[COLOR="Sienna"]Now, go and do your voting bit! You might have better luck next time...but I doubt it! Ho ho ho ho! [/COLOR]" As Darth Jubba left the room, the Max Rebo Band then launched into one of their newer hits, 'Jedi Rocks'.

Cologne turned to the group. "Even if you had guessed correctly, this murder still would have taken place, for as long as one Traitor remains, there will be more murders. There are still three Imperial Stormtroopers. But if we are fortunate, we may be able to eliminate at least one of them soon."

OOC: New voting round begins here! Rebel Alliance members, send me your guess ASAP.

"This is Bullshit" Marcus yelled.

"Who the hell could of gotten a drop on this kid" Marcus though. For what he read and heard, Goku was stronger then 1oo gears put toghether. Who the hell could of done this to him him. But then Marcus remeber what Jabba said. Needlees caused him to pass out due to fear. And the only someone could now that is by investigating his past. The only one who did that was that kid he saw by the library earlier.

That [B]Kyon[/B] kid has access to Gokus past as well as other information. He must had something to do with this.

Tendou's fist clenched. (If only I could use Hyper Zector..) He managed to get control of himself. (I know it's not me..as I knew where I was the whole time. Willow and some of the others were there..) Tendou made his choice, hoping he was right. [B]Dick Dasterdly[/B]


Chris Lang 02-25-2007 12:05 AM

Cologne turned to the group. The Max Rebo Band had just finished 'Jedi Rocks', which was the last song of that set, so they had left. Now Cologne had the group's undivided attention for her next announcement.

"Some of you are making your choices already. However, we must not rush to conclusions. Especially not in this round."

"In this round, my Bounty Hunter will be given the opportunity to eliminate someone he or she believes to be one of the Imperial Stormtroopers. Since my Bounty Hunter does not in fact know who the Traitors are, the decision to kill a suspect can not be made in haste."

"My Rebel Alliance members will also make another guess. Hopefully, they will guess correctly this time, and be able to lead us in the right direction without revealing themselves."

"But it is important that you think about your choices. You cannot afford to make too many mistakes. There are seventeen players remaining, and three of them are Imperial Stormtroopers. Choose wisely."

OOC: Yes, this is the round where the Vigilante's first kill happens.

"Woah........where am I?" was all goku could say at first as he got up from laying in the swampy amrsh that is dagobah. "All i remember was being in that weird game thing then some creature shows me some needles and now im.......IN A SWAMP? Aww man, I hope I can get back to chichi soon after this ANd whats that weird voice I hear? *Goku speeds to discover where the voice is coming from to find some........monitor thing* "WHAT ARE YOU!? he asks quizzically to the weird monitor

Cologne turned to the monitor nearby, and saw Goku speaking.

"You are on the planet Dagobah now. Darth Jubba is using it as a holding place for players who have been eliminated. That monitor has been placed so that you may communicate with us." Cologne told him.

"There are drier parts of Dagobah. There's the area around Yoda's former hut. Yoda lived there before he became one with the Force. You may encounter Darth Vader there, because he was banished there. Vader was innocent this time, by the way. So we still have three Imperial Stormtroopers to worry about."

Goku nodded, then spoke: "Right, i'll go to yoda's hut. Werid that this vader fellow wasnt the culprit, hope you find those stormtroopers. I have a question before I go Cologne: I'm not dead am I?

"Are you dead?" Cologne replied. "The answer to that would be 'Yes and no'."

"Apparently, Darth Jubba, for all his evil, is a pragmatic creature. He sees the players in the game as possibly being useful to him in the future. So he is having those who have died be restored to life in duplicate bodies on Dagobah. So while we can still see and examine the remains of Wesley Crusher and your previous body here, you are now living in new bodies on Dagobah."

"You will probably encounter Kenny McCormick there soon enough. I have instructed him to lead you to Yoda's hut. Yoda himself has long since passed on, but his hut is still a good place to go."

---

A familiar orange parka clad kid approached Goku. While Kenny's speech seemed almost like gibberish, the meaning was clear. "Follow me and I'll lead you to that hut Cologne was talking about" was what Kenny clearly was trying to say.

[QUOTE=Indigo Al;4437630]OOC: Going tomorrow. How were the lines?[/QUOTE]

lines were weird, but for most of the signing things, they were good. First, though, there's a line to get inside. If you bought your ticket online, you need to go in, get the actual ticket (if you haven't gotten one already) and then head outside to actually get in. It was super crowded, but i guess that's expected when today was Sold out. Well, good night.


GoGo Yubari 02-25-2007 01:48 AM

Someone's accusing [i]me?[/i] What sense does that make? We're in a game with people who casually attack others and people who can effortlessly read the minds of every other player in the game (at least, according to the files I've seen), and the person being accused accused of murder is the quiet high school student?

"I had nothing to do with this! I wasn't the only person who did research the other day, and furthermore what I know of Goku was that he's a character in an anime series I used to watch when I was a kid, and that he's a very good martial artist. I can't remember any instance in Dragonball or Dragonball Z where an intense fear of sharp objects was mentioned. Look, I don't know who did this and I don't claim to know. Personally, I'd like to hear whether the Alliance's guess pays off before I start seriously thinking about who I vote for. After all, the last time we jumped the gun, with Darth Vader, it didn't pay off at all."

"Besides, how do I know that you are not cooking something up for me as we speak"


Spidey-kid1 02-25-2007 08:20 AM

Luffy walked into the murder room and saw the dead body.

[QUOTE=Froggy;4438230]"alright then, thank you Kenny! Goku then walked following kenny, wishing he cou ld dash off after kenny[/QUOTE]


After a short walk Kenny leads goku to a broken down hut in a wide clearing. Trees rocks and muddy water was being thrown as walls and a ceiling were being put in place. It look to guku that a million invisible men were working at top speed to clear the swamp and erect a large house.

[COLOR="Red"]"welcome young guku! welcome to [B]vader's retreat! [/B]As you can see I'm using the force to clear land and build a place where we, and the rest to follow can live and plan out attack against the slug. the house will take awhile to finish. anything you can do to help will be....helpful. Come let's get to work! [/COLOR]



RUMINATIONS: Ah, I'd pretty much disposed of the Rancor earlier, but the Traitors wanted to use it. Fortunately, Darth Jubba had that Interdimensional Device and was easily able to find another one.

Again, I continue my little agreement to always work in a Weird Al reference in every Traitor Game Weirdopky and I are in together. As for Dagobah, I thought it'd work as a place for the eliminated. darkkeeperjr wasted no time in giving them something to do there until I came up with something later.

And of course we see that Darth Jubba's villainy ranges from petty mischief like stealing food to nasty stuff like feeding people to monsters. He'll do lots more nasty stuff before the good guys finally give him his comeuppance. But more on that later.
