Jeff-E 01-28-2007 01:16 AM

I had to stifle the laughter while Meowth roamed around as a doombot, and just as I was getting ready to answer his questions he left:

"hahahhhahhhahahahhaahah" I couldn't help but laugh so hard I almost cried

OoC-really that made me laugh that hard BiC-

"*ahem*" I cleared my throat

"Jade, why are you so confident Mantis will vote for you? The vote really isn't headed in your direction, I mean, you do have abilities like those who commited the crime but the vote is leaning in a different direction. What did you do to make Mantis want to accuse you? Tell us a little about you, and do you have any connection with the Celestial Madonna?"


Anthony Johanson 01-28-2007 02:33 AM

Jade groaned, and replied:

"I have no connection with Mantis, and judging by her, nor do I ever want to. As I explained before, I am but a high ranking military man, who stumbled upon much achievements. I am so sure Mantis will vote for me becuase she has voted for me all the way through, and she will probably give some cryptic speech about me twisting your minds and the like, again."

OOC: Thanks, Chris Lang and Jeff-E. Glad ya enjoyed the comedic stylings of Meowth! :) Hopefully everyone's pop-culture savvy enough for Electric Company references-- if not that's okay. Also, re: costumes, where do Team Rocket EVER get there costumes? or there mechs? they don't even have money for food (!) I guess they have the same ACME credit plan that Mr. Wile E. Coyote subscribes to.

BIC: [I]I t'ought it wuz time ta try an' sneak back to da group. I played it cool an' noticed a few of dem wuz so scared by my clevah disguise dat dey wuz barely chokin' back da fear. (I guess dese guys must giggle a lot when frightened)-- I jus' melded back inta da group waitin' fer da usual terrible troubles dat ol' Mirrah Mask wuz gonna bring us tonight. [/I] "*sigh* I sure do hope we chose da right guy dis time..."


The Purple Skull 01-28-2007 05:39 PM

tangentman 01-28-2007 07:14 PM

Mantis confidently spoke up after hearing from Ukyo, Jeff, and Jade. [COLOR="Green"]"Yes, This One will vote for [B]Jade[/B] again. His words do not sway her from her position."[/COLOR] Staring at Jade with cool eyes, Mantis didn't feel a need to explain herself yet again. Whether or not her voting pattern offended Jade was of no concern to the Celestial Madonna.


Superheroic 01-28-2007 08:39 PM

Cap strode the hallways of Castle Doom. He had been quiet, lost in thought. The others had ignored his vote and fell into the Doom Squad's trap again. Five lightning wielders was four too many suspects. It looked like at least one would be voted out though, a small victory at least. He wondered if perhaps he should change his vote as he was sure one of the five had to be a Doom Squad member. It didn't matter now.

There was a banishment coming up...

...and another kill!

Captain America had to be prepared for both.

OOC: So sorry I haven't posted much this weekend. I'll make up for it during the week!


Chris Lang 01-28-2007 10:31 PM

Ukyo was tired of sitting around waiting for something to happen. So she decided to go back to her living quarters to check on her letter to Cologne.

She looked it over, and was pleased with the way it read. It was up to date, discussing everything that had happened up to Luffy's murder. And she had made sure to word everything carefully just in case the wrong people had looked at the letter while she was out.

She looked at the last portion of the letter again.

[QUOTE]I wish I knew the right way to talk to Dr. Doom. Should I be shouting at him, should I try to be nice to him, or should I just leave him alone? For now, I'm leaving him alone. Honestly, I don't understand why he feels he has to rule everything when he already had Latveria. Maybe he truly does believe he can run the multiverse better than those in charge. Whether he can or not, we're all caught in the middle of his plan.

I still don't see why the Living Tribunal felt the need to drag everyone into the middle of this. If he's such a powerful cosmic entity, why does he need our help?

Many of the others are getting restless. I've thought of suggesting a few friendly sparring matches, but I'm afraid to do it. The wrong move here can make you look suspicious.

That hasn't stopped Beta Ray Bill and the Undertaker from taking their frustrations out on a few Doombots, though. I'm sure Doom is going to send them the bill.

I don't know if I'll have a chance to write you again. I hope you can find some help, because we've still got a long way to go here. I'm afraid of what might happen next, or what I might have to do. But if I have to do something unpleasant, such as vote someone I like to be banished, I'll do it. That's what you'd want me to do, after all. The fate of the world is at stake.

Tell Ranma I'm trying my best, and that I'll come home as soon as the multiverse is saved. Tell Konatsu to keep Ucchan's open while I'm away. I don't know what's going to happen now. Wish me luck...

Ukyo Kuonji[/QUOTE]

Ukyo looked over the letter one more time. She realized that that last paragraph made her sound more confident than she actually was, but she needed to be brave for Ranchan. Satisfied with the letter, she placed it in an envelope and addressed it to Cologne.

"Tribunal, Rogue Watcher, whoever, do your stuff and send this letter." she said. She left the letter on the top of the desk, in the same position she had found Cologne's letter.

Ukyo then went out into the hall, carefully looking around for signs of trouble. She then hurried to rejoin the rest of the group.


The Purple Skull 01-28-2007 10:53 PM

With less than 10 minutes to go, I've begun typing up the update. Barring any vote changes, the update should be posted on time.


The Purple Skull 01-28-2007 11:02 PM

After a tense few days, the next banishment was finally held! Doom and the rest of the group made their way to the Hall Of Doom.

[COLOR="Green"]So, who has been voted out today?[/COLOR]

Meowth: We da jury find dat scary twoip, [B]Undertaker[/B], guilty ov bein’ one ov da traitas.

[COLOR="Green"]It is done.[/COLOR]

Before being banished, the Undertaker shot an intimidating glance over those who voted for him. This caused some to soil themselves.

[COLOR="Green"]HAHAHAHAHA! You have missed again! I shall see you all later again when another one falls. So says….Dr. Dumb..er…I mean Dr. Doom![/COLOR]

Doombot-24: Nice recovery there, sire.

[COLOR="Green"]Silence! Incompetent machine. I shall make an example out of you. As a matter of fact, I shall make an example out of all of you insolent Doombots! But that shall be another time.[/COLOR]

Hours pass, and Doom gathers the group over at Doom Sub-Level 5 (The Basement). There the group surrounds what looks to be a beaten up Doombot.

Captain America: What is the point of this, Doom?

Chris Jericho: Yeah, Vinny baby. Why are you showing us one of your loser Dumb-bots?

[COLOR="Green"]First off, my first name is Victor! Second, you shall refer to me as your Lord and Master.[/COLOR]

Chris Jericho: Well you can refer to me as your Paragon Of Virtue….but you don’t see me getting mad when I don’t get called that.

[COLOR="Green"]Silence! Anyway, maybe you all should take a closer examination of that so-called ‘Doombot’.[/COLOR]

Columbo decides to check out the helmet. Upon contact with it, the metal burns his flesh.

Columbo: Ahh! That’s hot! Doom, were you cooking something in there?

[COLOR="Green"]No, but maybe my Doom Squad were! HAHAHAHA![/COLOR]

After the bot cooled down, Columbo was able to remove the helmet revealing the burnt corpse of [B]Meowth[/B]!

[COLOR="Green"]Anybody enjoy roasted cat? Cajun-style? HAHAHAHA! The foolish feline thought he could get away with his so-called disguise. However, my Doom Squad saw through his ruse and cornered him here. From there, they set Meowth on fire inside his armor. As the old saying goes, they just had to “Set it and Forget it!” HAHAHAHA![/COLOR]

Jeff-E: Let’s get out of here before I get anymore sick.

As Jeff makes his way towards the elevator, he trips over something in the corner of the room.

Jeff-E: What the hell? Oh my god! Guys, it’s [B]Arthur Dent[/B]!

Prez Rickard: I guess that explains his disappearance after the first day.

[COLOR="Green"]I almost forgot about that fool. As you can see, a kitchen spatula through the heart was what did him in. Well that is it for me. You may begin voting. Oh, and keep your eyes peeled. I shall return later with a special little exercise I designed to keep you all in shape….[/COLOR]


OOC: Voting starts now! Deadline will be on Wednesday 11 PM ET. Check out this thread tomorrow at around 8 PM ET where we’ll have a special activity for the players to participate in.

To the Secret Avenger: Please send in your next guess ASAP.

OOC: Wow, PS, you're really making this game a lot easier for the traitors. Hell, if my Suicide Squad got the two kills per round back in Game IV, we'd have won in no time!


Indigo Al 01-28-2007 11:17 PM

[IMG]http://rzero.com/books/Prez1-logo.gif[/IMG]

Prez looked away from the sight of Meowth's crispy fried corpse in anger and sadness. He liked the mouthy little cat-guy with the working-class Joe accent, and he thought Meowth's people labored under an unjust system back in his homeworld.

[COLOR="Red"]"I'm not gonna rest till we win, Doom. It's clear the language of peace means nothing to you. You may think I'm just a hippie idealist, but I'll show you what it means to be Commander-In-Chief. The vampires of Transylvania sure know."

"I've got two suspects now, but I'm gonna wait to hear more theories."[/COLOR]


Chris Lang 01-28-2007 11:17 PM

"NOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!" screamed Ukyo.

Her eyes were filled with tears. She broke down, sobbing.

"Why?!?" she cried. "He was so...funny. He made me smile...oh, Meowth, how could they do this?"

She sat there, sobbing, for quite some time. Then, she rose to her feet, battle spatula in hand. She glared at the others in the group. There was a fire in her eyes they had not seen before.

"I don't know who did this, but someone is going to pay! Meowth was my friend, and no one hurts my friends and gets away with it! When I find out who murdered Meowth, they'll wish they'd never been BORN!"


The Purple Skull 01-28-2007 11:33 PM

[QUOTE=Deadpooligan;4309671]OOC: Wow, PS, you're really making this game a lot easier for the traitors. Hell, if my Suicide Squad got the two kills per round back in Game IV, we'd have won in no time![/QUOTE] Yeah I noticed that too. At least it's not like the traitors are killing off 2 active players. And luckily, the inactive list is shrinking so hopefully we can go back to one traitor kill at a time.


Weirdopky 01-28-2007 11:39 PM

[COLOR="Navy"]Poor little cat guy. That Arthur guy got what was coming to him. He hadn't been part of the game, so the traitors snuffed him out. You guys are terrible at voting. Keep trying.[/COLOR]


ooc: Yo, deadpooligan. Even if you got the two-kill-per-round rule, I'd still have taken you down, cause i was active. Well, whatever, the past is past.


Weirdopky 01-28-2007 11:40 PM

CURSE YOU, DOUBLE POSTS OF DOOM!!!!! You've made a powerful enemy today!!!


Pheonix-NoRelation 01-28-2007 11:46 PM

So now there are two dead. And the Undertaker's gone. So we're down to like, 16 guys including myself and two of us are part of the Doom Squad. The Ukyo person seemed pretty upset over the death of the cat. She really seemed to play it up, I mean, like, really. It could be that their trying to cover up what they did and elude suspicion. That's why my vote's for [B]Ukyo[/B].

I miss Meowth already. Schornforce gave us a lot of wonderful comic relief. But I think we all saw it coming. I think Schornforce did, too.

"So, does that mean YOU killed Gwen Stacy?"

Ukyo glared at Spider-Man. She was still very upset.

"I read some of the translated Spider-Man comics from the United States. In one of them, the Green Goblin threw your girlfriend Gwen Stacy off a bridge. You tried your best to save her, but you still failed! Afterward, I think you said something like 'You killed the girl I loved, and for that you're going to die!'"

"You were just as upset about Gwen as I am about Meowth. Does that make you a murderer?"

"Is your head so filled with webs that you can't think? Do you really think I'd kill anyone with a spatula? Do you really think I'd kill Meowth by COOKING HIM TO DEATH? How stupid do you think I am?"

Ukyo tried to calm herself down. "Look, I'm very upset right now. Please, don't insult my intelligence like this."

Ukyo wiped away tears from her eyes. But they still came.

[COLOR="Green"]Interesting that she should mention the Spider-Man/Gwen Stacy incident with the Green Goblin. Hmm, the last time I saw those 3 together was when they were at that talk show a few years back.[/COLOR]


[B]Flashback [/B]

On the stage are Spider-Man, Gwen Stacy, and Norman Osborn. On the video screen are twin babies.

Maury Povich: Now when it comes to Gabriel and Sarah Stacy, Norman Osborn......you ARE the father.

Spider-Man: (Starts dancing like an idiot) Oh yeah! I told you I wasn't the daddy! I'm outta here folks. I'm off to the nearest titty bar.

Norman Osborn: S#$@! F#$#!

Maury: Looks like one of our audience members has a something to say. What is your name?

[COLOR="Green"]I am Victor Von Doom, absolute Lord of Latveria...soon to be Lord of the universe. Norman, my friend, here's my advice. I think you should take the babies, age them rapidly, and make them attack that wretched Spider-Man...and that accursed Reed Richards as well![/COLOR]

(Audience boos)

[COLOR="Green"]What?! You DARE boo me?[/COLOR]

Maury: Mr. Doom, you are a despicable individual. You make me ashamed to be a human being.

(Audience cheers)

[COLOR="Green"]Smug fool. Vengeance will be mine![/COLOR]


[B]Back at Castle Doom[/B] [COLOR="Green"]Did I ever get my revenge on that cretin?[/COLOR]

Doombot-717: No, not yet. He's got that restraining order on you, remember?

[COLOR="Green"]Bah![/COLOR]

[QUOTE=The Purple Skull;4310148]Unbeknowgnst to Doom, the P.A. system was on, allowing everyone to hear his flashback.[/QUOTE]

"What was THAT all about?" Ukyo asked, genuinely confused by what she had just heard. It momentarily took her mind off of Meowth.

After a moment's thought, she added. "Never mind. I don't want to know."


Superheroic 01-29-2007 07:55 AM

Captain America stood over the burnt corpse of the anthropomorphic feline known as Meowth. Cap hadn't had a chance to talk to the little creature but the others seemed to like him. Ukyo especially. She took his death hard, too hard. They had also stumbled upon the body of Arthur Dent who had a spatula through the heart. Two cooking related deaths?

The Doom Squad had changed its focus, it looked as if they were now trying to implicate Ukyo. The charge worked as Spider-Man had already voted for the Okonomiyaki chef. Cap didn't buy it.

They had banished the Undertaker, one of the lightning users. That left four, at least one was sure to be in the Doom Squad; Dante, Dr. Strange, Jade, or Beta Ray Bill. Cap still had his suspicions about James Bond. He would need to talk it over with the others before making any decisions.

I was pacing rapidly:

"Ok, Meowth gets toasted, Dent gets a spatula through the heart, and we banished the wrong dude. This is hands down the worst round yet. Ok, Jade has an elemental sword, Ukyo uses spatula's but thats so specific that it almost seems like a set up. Bill can use lightning, which was used in some of the other crimes, Cap, I'm sorry big guy but I'm going through everyone here, can hurl objects like you wouldn't believe. Columbo, Jericho, Bond, the Prez, and Myself are all human but who knows what anyone of us could do? Spiderman is the most well rounded person in the M.U. as far as agility, strength, etc goes. Doc Strange could commit several of these crimes, Dante as well. Lastly we have Mantis, Power Girl, Monarch and Hulk, two of which are constantly hidden, hiding or just are else where, Mantis has ample abilities and Hulk, well he's the friggin' Hulk. Only a couple of the crimes would really point towards him... Anyone have any ideas because right now I don't have anything. I've got an idea on who to lean towards but I just don't know right now."


Superheroic 01-29-2007 09:23 AM

Cap heard Jeff's remark about himself. "Its alright Jeff. No one should be excused as a suspect. I'm even open to the suggestion that a non-powered being could be in the Doom Squad." He looked closely at Jeff as he said this. "It probably would be a good idea for you separate yourself from me anyway. I know I've supported you so far. However you just can't know who is in the Doom Squad and I would hate for you to end up suffering for some perceived alliance with me. Trust your instincts, Jeff. You've done well so far."

Cap turned to the others. "Can anyone examine Meowth's body? I'd like to know if his death was by fire, electricity, or something else entirely. Was there magic involved? Or was it just mundane?"


Jeff-E 01-29-2007 09:42 AM

I responded to Cap:

"Agreed brother, we probably all should distance ourselves from each other. Still, I think we should watch what everyone else does and atleast try to help each other out with the votes. It still doesn't seem like the best idea for everyone to vote every which way... or maybe at this point it is better for every one to just do what they think is best for themselves... I guess only time will tell... but for the moment I'm going to throw out a vote, of someone I've been suspecting for a while now, so [B]DANTE[/B], I vote for you.


Chris Lang 01-29-2007 10:05 AM

Some time after she had responded to Spider-Man's accusation, and heard Dr. Doom saying strange things over the P.A. system about Gwen Stacy, Norman Osborn, and some talk show host, Ukyo had gone back to her quarters and tossed herself onto the bed.

She didn't know how long she lay there crying. Images of Meowth kept appearing in her mind. Whether they were the living Meowth or the remains found in the basement, the images only made her feel worse.

Cologne had warned her not to get too attached to anyone she met in the Traitor Game. Cologne also cautioned about not letting ones' emotions get the better of them. [I]I'm sorry, Cologne[/I], she thought to herself. [I]I'm terrible at following your advice...[/I]

[I]Best to just let it all out now[/I], Ukyo decided. She would be no use to Cologne or anyone else if she remained in this state.

After a while, Ukyo was ready to return to the group. She heard Jeff saying that this was the worst round yet. It was a statement she couldn't really argue with. After Jeff ran down the list of suspects, Captain America spoke up.

[QUOTE=Superheroic;4310804]Cap heard Jeff's remark about himself. "Its alright Jeff. No one should be excused as a suspect.

"I don't know if you can trust ANYONE to examine the body." Ukyo told Captain America. "For all you know, they might be the ones who did it. It'd be easy for them to tamper with the evidence."

"I'm sorry, everyone." she told the group. "Meowth was the closest thing I had to a friend here. I know it sounds stupid since we can't really trust each other, but it's the truth."

"I wish I knew who did it. I think Dante might be capable of wielding fire and lightning, but then so could Jade. Then there's Spider-Man. In the comics I read, he's a nice guy. But here he's been acting so strangely I don't really know what to think."

"I guess we should try to get rid of the fire or lightning wielders first, since we still don't have any clue as to who the other Traitor is. But I don't know who to vote for yet."


Joe Acro 01-29-2007 10:11 AM

[i]I meditated for some time, during which there was a fair amount of discussion. When returned to my usual state, the Undertaker was banished and, shortly thereafter, Meowth and Arthur Dent we killed. Meowth had been burned inside his Doombot disguise. Arthur Dent had been stabbed with a spatula. Meowth's death was unfortunate, for I had never answered his questions, largely because he had kept himself busy elsewhere.

I spoke to the group, [b]"It seems to me, since the Avenger has not succeeded once more, that the Doom Squad members must not be obvious. So, I propose that at least one of the unlikely candidates, those being Prez, Jeff, Lt. Columbo, Ukyo, and Chris Jericho, is a traitor."[/b][/i]


Jeff-E 01-29-2007 10:33 AM

After listening to what Ukyo and Dr.Strange had said I agreed with both of their assesments:

"Ukyo, I was just thinking the same thing about someone examining the bodies of the victims that if the traitor were the one to examine them that he, or she could very well alter the results. Doc, I also agree with your assesment that the traitor could very well be one of us "normal" folks, especially since the agent has been wrong again in his or her guessing, but the one thing you have to remember is that there are alot of people in this "game" to run through. But since we don't know who the agent has been guessing it's hard to tell which direction to lean in the voting. I just recomend to everyone to, as Cap put it, trust your instincts, and vote who for you think the traitor is"

I hung my head:

"Even if you think it's me, I don't want to be banished, but I understand everyone is suspect at this point."

[QUOTE=Ukyo;4310928]"I don't know if you can trust ANYONE to examine the body." Ukyo told Captain America. "For all you know, they might be the ones who did it. It'd be easy for them to tamper with the evidence."

"I'm sorry, everyone." she told the group. "Meowth was the closest thing I had to a friend here. I know it sounds stupid since we can't really trust each other, but it's the truth."

"I wish I knew who did it. I think Dante might be capable of wielding fire and lightning, but then so could Jade. Then there's Spider-Man. In the comics I read, he's a nice guy. But here he's been acting so strangely I don't really know what to think."

"I guess we should try to get rid of the fire or lightning wielders first, since we still don't have any clue as to who the other Traitor is. But I don't know who to vote for yet."[/QUOTE]

Cap felt sorry for Ukyo, the death of Meowth took its toll on her. He was sure her grief was genuine.

"I'm sorry Ukyo," Cap said. "I'm sorry for not being able to stop the Doom Squad in time. I'm sorry for all the killing. If I could take the place of any of you I would. Maybe I was wrong last round for not voting one of the Lightning suspect? Its too late to second guess ourselves now. We can only make our best attempt at banishing someone."

Just then Doctor Strange spoke up.

[QUOTE=Doctor Strange;4310954][b]"It seems to me, since the Avenger has not succeeded once more, that the Doom Squad members must not be obvious. So, I propose that at least one of the unlikely candidates, those being Prez, Jeff, Lt. Columbo, Ukyo, and Chris Jericho, is a traitor."[/b][/QUOTE]

"I'd say that's as likely scenario as any. I proposed James Bond as a member last round. But that still doesn't explain away the lightning or fire users. There must be at least one member of the Doom Squad with those abilities. Is there any reason why you're choosing to move the suspicion off of them? Or not choosing Bond in you list of candidates?"


Joe Acro 01-29-2007 10:46 AM

[i]Both Jeff and Captain America responded to my words. The Captain, though, actually asked a few questions. [B] "I'd say that's as likely scenario as any. I proposed James Bond as a member last round. But that still doesn't explain away the lightning or fire users. There must be at least one member of the Doom Squad with those abilities. Is there any reason why you're choosing to move the suspicion off of them? Or not choosing Bond in you list of candidates?"[/B]

I took a moment to gather my thoughts and then answered.

[b]"I'm not trying to move suspicion. I'm simply providing insight toward options we have yet to consider. I did not include James Bond due to his history with gadgets and resourcefulness. He could very well be responsible for burning Meowth alive or even slicing off Batman's skin. I actually see him as a very decent candidate to choose as traitor. Hence, I left him out of the earlier group.

"Given the large amount of candidates, I actually believe the best thing the Avenger could do for us now is to be killed. That would supply us with helpful information."[/b][/i]

[SIZE="5"][B]SPECIAL ACTIVITY[/B][/SIZE]


With the voting period well underway, Dr. Doom makes a surprising reappearance. It looked as if the Latverian Monarch had something sinister planned for the group.

[COLOR="Green"]I believe the last time we gathered, I told you all to keep your eyes peeled for a special little exercise you must all participate in. I also said that I would make examples out of all of my foolish Doombots. Well I have decided to kill two birds with one stone. Meet me in the room down the hall.[/COLOR]

A few minutes later…

[COLOR="Green"]Welcome to the Victor Von Doom Recreational Facilities! I hope you all enjoy the recreational activity planned for today.[/COLOR]

With a snap of his fingers, hordes of Doombots surround the group.

[COLOR="Green"]This activity is simple. [B][U]Engage in combat with the Doombots and survive.[/U][/B] I shall see you all, hopefully, at the next banishment. Have fun! HAHAHAHAHA![/COLOR]

Spider-Man: Well this certainly sucks….


OOC: Time to get creative! It you versus the Doombots! Show us how you dispose of Dr. Doom’s robot army. Don’t be too greedy. There’s plenty of Doombots for everyone to destroy.

Since the next banishment isn’t until Wednesday, I decided to add this sub-plot so you guys have something to do to pass the time. All I ask is that you do your voting first before you partake in this mini-game.

Have fun!

OOC: I've got dibs on Doombot 999666, Doombot 666999, and Doombot 042, plus a whole bunch of Doombots whose numbers Ukyo won't bother to find out. :)

First, though, I need to decide who I'm going to vote for, and that's a tough one.


Joe Acro 01-29-2007 04:36 PM

[i]I reflected upon matters and determined that Cap's previous vote, that of James Bond, was really quite decent. I already knew how versatile the British agent could be. So, I shouted,

[b]"I shall vote for [COLOR="Blue"]James Bond[/COLOR]. Although I do think a lesser-powered man or woman is involved, I believe Bond has to capability to perform many of the crimes.[/b]

Almost immediately thereafter, Doom made an announcement and gathered us in his recreational area. He challenged us to defeat as many Doombots as possible and survive the ordeal. He did not say what would happen if one of us were to be killed.

Given the large amount of enemies, I knew that larger spells would be required. Thus, I began opening a few portals through which some Doombots fell. I used the Crimson Bands of Cytorrak to encase and crush a relatively small group of them. Noticing that the others were doing a fine job of fighting Doom's army, I cast an illusion spell so that the robots would not see me. I felt my energy would be better served in case the Doom Squad attempted to attack during the fray.[/i]

Some of the doom bots have a Vader type helmet and are equipped with light sabers!


Schornforce 01-29-2007 05:49 PM

"Ugh... where am I? Dis place is bland an' lifeless-- am I in Cleveland?"

[I]Jus' as da cobwebs in my noggin wuz startin' ta clear, I hoid-- "The foolish feline thought he could get away with his so-called disguise. However, my Doom Squad saw through his ruse and cornered him here. From there, they set Meowth on fire inside his armor. As the old saying goes, they just had to “Set it and Forget it!” HAHAHAHA!"

Dat's when I remembahed dat whole traitah game thing an' shouted [/I]

"NO! Not Meowth! He's my fav'rite one!....

....

waitaminnit..."

[I]*sigh* now I remembah. Aftah da banishment I got a plan. Since my disguise seemed ta woik so well on da crowd, I thought I'd try an' fool dose Doombots an' see about stoppin' Doom from da inside. I guess someone saw through my brilliant disguisery an' decided I should blast off one final time. Now, normally, I'd be worried, but remembah dose robots I wuz buildin'? NYA HAHA!!! Wit'out me dere ta send a signal to 'em ev'ry hour, dey'd activate any time now!! An' den I'll get my revenge on dat nasty ol' Doctah Broom!!! [/I]

I popped on da limbo monitah ta issue da followin' ta dat dastahdly Doctah!

"Alright, Doctah Groom, prepah fer trouble! An' while yer attit, make it double! While in limbo due ta assassination, I feel okay despite da immolation! Ta denounce yer Zoom Squad at da speed a' light! Surrendah now, or prepare ta fight! Meowth! I'm right!!! MWAHAHAHA! I hope youse like da surprise I left ya, Doomie!"

In castle, da biggah of my two machines came ta life. It wuz a robotic Meowth (da most handsomest pokemon, o' course!) wit' a giant hammah! It whirred aroun' and aroun' smashin' every vase in da place!!!!

Da smallah one wuz jus' a little egg-shaped robot guy wit' a two way speakah connected to a limbo monitah and a small printah. It automatically went ta go find Ukyo.

When it got dere, da speakah beeped into da monitah an' I spoke, "Ukyo, don' worry. I'm okay here in limbo, bored, but othawise okay. I wish I could tell youse guys who done me in, but I dinnit see 'em... Sorry, kiddo. I... jus' wanted ta let youse know dat ...well... yer my friend. Youse be careful an' don't end up like me! My li'l robot here can't do much, but if youse evah need ta talk, just talk to dat dere robot an' I'll hear ya. Remembah what I said before I wuz done in... youse might wanna check da guys wit' da most voisatile powahs-- anyone wit' magic or who kin do fire an' lightnin'. Freaky psychic powahs may also be somet'in ta look inta-- if someone could control othas, it'd be da poifect frame up! All evidence would point ta someone else while da REAL bad guy makes da poor shlub he wuz usin' ferget all about it. I saw dat noivous British guy wit' da spatula t'rough his tummy, but don' worry. I know a frame-up when I sees one. I trust ya, Ukyo! Youse kin get t'roo dis!

...

oh, an' I rigged dis li'l robot ta cook up a surprise fer da entire gang-- even dat mean ol' Doctah Loom an' da traitahs. I'm sure it'll kick inta action soonah or latah.

Dis message will self destruct in five seconds.

...

Jus' kiddin'."

It wuz den dat da Crobatman guy said, "I'm Batman. Shut up, you annoying cat-- you yammer on more when you're dead than when you were alive! I'm Batman."

"Hey, sing dat Jigglypuff song like youse did on da Kids' WB!"

"You [B]must[/B] be joking. I'm Batman."

..."Do it or I'll do anuther motto!"

"*hnnn*.... Ji-ggly puuuuff.... Jig-uh-ly puff.... There. Happy?..."

"Sing da whole thing!"

"*grrr...* Ji-guh-lyyyyyyyy puff...."

[I]Meow! Mebbe I kin make dis limbo t'ing woik aftah all...[/I]


Anthony Johanson 01-29-2007 06:29 PM

Jade loked at the corpses, and replied:

"I'm will not decieve you, I could have killed Meowth. It was well within my range of capabilities to do that to the cat who spoke. However, that is too excessive, even for me. If I were a traitor, as I learned as a soldier of Malkuth, quick is best. Why expend that much energy just to cook a cat? I could have just as easily just decapitated him, or something to that effect, would have worked much better. That is inefficient and kinda sadistic, even I would not stoop to that level.

However, if was not Ukyo who killed Dent, it is a very obvious implication. Evidently, if that spatula was part of Ukyo's collection, there would have had to use time manipulation to grab said spatula and used it for their own purposes, so as to ensure no one could discover this until it was too late. Unfortunately, I will deviate from my vote of Strange and vote [B]Dante[/B], as that is in his capacity, and he has a tendency to do this sometimes.

Strange though, don't think that you have been removed from my list of suspects. You still top the list."

Jade then noticed a horde of Doombots rushing towards the survivors. Noting a small group of them, he rushed towards them, and unleshed a water spell. When the smoke cleared, it revealed that it did a grand total of noting.

Doombot: You attacked us.... with water. What in the hell did you think that was going to do. Hold on, I have to call some of my comrades up, I jsut have to share this.

Jade laughed, and replied:

"Thunder Lance!"

A blast of lightning then thundered towards the small part of Doombots. Seeing that it was doubled in effectiveness via the water, they were left in a smoking heap. Also noting that the rest of the group were holding its own against the onslaught of Doombots, he waited for any others that may attack him.


Chris Lang 01-29-2007 06:42 PM

OOC: Glad to see you're still with us, Schornforce. Looks like we can't keep Meowth down for long. :) Loved the motto.

IC:

"I guess I should vote for someone," Ukyo said. "But I don't know who..."

"For what it's worth, I don't think Dr. Strange did it. But Beta Ray Bill seems too obvious, and I'm nowhere near as sure about Jade as Mantis is."

"If they killed Meowth to demoralize me and cause me to screw up, I think it's working." she said in a bitter tone. "I feel I owe it to him to get the right suspect, but I just DON'T KNOW WHO TO VOTE FOR!"

Ukyo calmed herself down, and tried to think.

"I don't think it's Dante. I mean, Meowth posed as a Doombot only a few hours before he was killed, and we didn't hear from Dante during those hours. I would have thought he'd have voted. I suppose it's possible he's trying to make himself look like an inactive player to divert suspicion but..."

"Spider-Man's been acting like a jerk, but we can't just vote people off because they're jerks. But he's also been very suspicious. He was a little TOO quick to accuse me of being the killer. But he couldn't have wielded lightning, could he?"

"That's the problem," Ukyo said, facing the rest of the group. "Do we vote for the lightning wielder, or do we vote for the other Traitor who we know next to nothing about?"

Ukyo was interrupted from her speech by a noise behind her. She turned to see a small, egg-shaped robot standing behind her. The robot appeared to have two way speakers attached to one of Doom's limbo monitors. A familiar voice emerged from the monitors, and Ukyo saw Meowth in the limbo monitor.

[QUOTE=Schornforce;4312793]"Ukyo, don' worry. I'm okay here in limbo, bored, but othawise okay. I wish I could tell youse guys who done me in, but I dinnit see 'em... Sorry, kiddo.

Jus' kiddin'."[/QUOTE]

Ukyo's spirits rose. "Thank you, Meowth. I just wish I could pick a suspect. There are some I THINK I can eliminate, but I just can't be sure."

"I guess I'll go with [B]Beta Ray Bill[/B]. I know he seems too obvious, but he was the best suspect I could come up with right now."

"Anyway, I'm glad you haven't lost your sense of humor." Ukyo smiled, for the first time since the scene in the basement. She rose to her feet, battle spatula drawn. "And now it's time to kick some Doombot ass!"



RUMINATIONS: In the Traitor Games, we often play a lot of characters who have super-powers or special abilities and such, but don't often get to use them as such. This is the first of several sequences designed to allow them to do just that without causing people to think they might be Traitors. Some of these sequences are more tied in to the storyline than others. This one arises out of the whole running Doombot sketch gag, and allows the players to actually get in on the craziness.

More of this in Part 18 of the re-presentation.
