    43 KB TG Quest 47: End of Ebon-JUST KILL HIM ALREADY! MetaQuest OP 01/08/12(Sun)20:13 No.17468187  
    Excited Exclamation: Look, Master! TG Quest!

    Last thread: http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive/17450144/

    Short Summary: Everything is accounted for, all lands freed, all preparations made... The time has come for your final confrontation with the Ebon Night at the site of the mysterious crystal pillar that seems to be bearing the weight of the world.

    You deploy your troops and defensive emplacements around the pillar, VP-99 wheeling the shard of Adam within the chamber, but not CLOSE to the crystal structure.

    >Mechs and fliers on standby on the surface.
    Cheryl, Tosh, X-Com Psi-Vets, Psions, and Farseers taking on the World Pillar.
    Our troops with First Age weapons and the Spear joining the on the inner ring, along with Douglas (if anyone else has a Persona, recommend them here as well though it looks like just the one pick).
    Our magic users in the next ring out, to provide support to the inner ring and outer ring.
    Outer ring is the rest of our units and turrets and guns set to keep outside trouble from coming in.
    Position ships geo-stationary over the south pole. Deploy all the shuttlepods and the shuttlecraft to the site as well.

    Your psychics stand in a circle around Cheryl and the pillar, the young woman looking a bit uneasy, waiting for the command to send her mind into the giant crystal formation and attempt to interface with it.

    Have the White Mages cast ReRaise on themselves and the telepath team. They'll be Ebon Night's first target.
    Then on everybody else as they have MP available.

    Do we have the Lance of Longinus on a KI silencer, the Aglaphotis, and our other gear ready?
    Are either the Relentless or the Indefatigable able to approach and provide cap-grade reality emissions?
    Turrets, dispensers, etc. set up?
    Char suitably VERY FAR AWAY from pillar?
    Orbital support ready in case Shoggoths try kicking down the door?

    Right. Let's start the party.

    We can't keep casting Reraise quite that much, but agree with getting it on the Telepaths and White Mages, and letting them rest a bit to recover before the fight, which is fairly soon at current estimates.

    Make sure that the pure Aglaophotis sample is with Cheryl, and that the Lance of Longinus has been assigned to a KI Silencer.
    Also, give one of the Toxiguns to Spike, and the other to Douglas. They won't be great, but they might help.

    Cheryl takes a deep breath and steps forward, placing a hand on the crystal pillar. She closes her eyes and focuses, the air around both pillar and Cheryl becoming wavy, like heat rising from pavement. Energy readings begin to skyrocket all around the cavern chamber as several gauges and instruments on the probe droids and scanning teams break. The ground begins to shake and all around the pillar chamber, everything fades to black.

    Then, on the bridge of the Oncoming Storm, several monitors explode. Gouts of shrapnel and sparks erupt from crew stations as slowly all light fades there as well. Even the star and moon light from the portholes and bridge windows fade to nothing. Then all sound is lost. Shortly after that, you realize you are no longer standing on solid matter, but floating.

    "Did you really think I would let you direct your puppets from safety in the embrace of the heavens?" a deep, resonant voice asks as twin pinpricks of ruby light break through the darkness. "Did you think I would let you escape the consequences for defiance? Allow you to watch the finale of our play, the climax of our song, from your sanctum in the stars?"

    A soft blue glow begins to pierce the gloom as well. Slowly, the pillar of the world begins to appear, and as it sheds light, the pillar chamber with all its fortifications and troops is revealed. Your feet touch ground just as the ring of psychics are revealed around you.

    "No..." the voice echoes, the illumination rapidly beginning to grow towards the gloom-shielded lights. A massive claw slams down into the lit area, with scales of mirrored obsidian. "If I must make an appearance here... if that damnable girl draws out my true form, so must you. And there will be an end between us."

    The light grows strong enough to unmask the being in the shadows as the twin lights emerge to reveal themselves the glowing red eyes of a gigantic draconic form, a massive ebon dragon.

    “Arrogant fools..." the Ebon Night murmurs as ARC guns trace along his scales, exploding lines in the massive hide of the creature. " Femto was part of the God-Hand who had the power to reshape reality with the dreams and nightmares of every mortal in their world."

    Bolter shells erupt uselessly against those obsidian plates, making cracks and dents, but failing to pierce the impossibly dense hide.

    "Nyx and the Idea of Evil were powers beyond god-hood," the Night booms as he reaches out and with an almost casual motion smashes a trio of UNIT troopers to bloody smears against the stone ground, their powered armor splintering and breaking apart with audible cracks. Glistening white fangs between which oozes some crimson venom show in a grotesque smile. "Did you really think I would let you dance and play in my garden if I thought you had the slightest chance of truly harming me? Did you think eating the apple of knowledge here would provide you with some secret that would slay me?"

    The dragon lets out a booming laugh that hurts your ears as panther assault cannon and phaser fire uselessly spatter against it.

    "Foolish, pathetic motes of light, all you send against me are bags of flesh led by a child-god. Against me? I, the Ebon Night, the Worm of Ways, the Twister-Between-Worlds, the Black Wyrm?" the dragon roars, almost seeming offended. "I have more names than you have soldiers. I have sowed the seeds of nightmare in more worlds than atoms in your pitiable bodies. I am part of you, part of that thing that drives you, part of the invisible world beyond that even you with all your vaunted secret lore are ignorant of...”

    A volley of mass rifle fire begins to eat away at the scales of the Dark Power's hindsection as the Sandmen and Delta Greens complete their flanking maneuver and open fire. The Ebon Night flicks his tail and scatters them, the stealth of the Greens proving useless as three are smashed to bits.

    The Prawns switch over to their TK fields and begin to attempt to pull out one of the monster's eyes as Lyla calls down a pillar of light on the Dark Power.

    "He's weak," Cheryl's voice reverberates in your mind, the Farseers aiding her in creating a psychic link among you and your troops. "Even now, he hasn't recovered from the energy expended in escaping Ravenloft, or in creating this... place. I... we're using this pillar to manipulate reality here. It'll be tough... but for a short time, physical weapons can harm him. I don't think I can keep it up for more than a few minutes though... Hurt him as much as you can! I don't think I can trap him again, and most of our weapons will be useless once he wriggles free..."

    The dragon is easily a hundred feet long.

    "How very... unfortunately true," the Ebon Night admits as he breathes in. "But not always."

    A cone of pure darkness blasts from the Ebon Night's jaws, washing over the BLU team as the psychotic mercs attack again and again only to find their weapons ineffective. When the energy recedes, all that remains of them are their weapons.

    "Melee fighters, sweep around to the other side and attack!" Darius calls out, beginning to move. "We should be safe from any friendly fire positioned thus!"

    "Come on sirs, can't have you out here in harm's way," a UNIT soldier says, two of his fellows stopping to help him point you towards the other end of the cave. "We'll get you to some better cover. With your permission, of course."

    The Ebon Night laughs maniacally as his tail thunders against the cavern wall again, and again, and again, the room shaking as stones and stalactites begin to fall from the ceiling, causing injuries for the entire assault force. Cheryl for a moment is knocked back from the pillar, but a fast Farseer grabs her with telekinesis and repositions her before the psychic web can be disrupted.

    One of the command crew picks up the Medic's medigun and begins liberally applying healing to the troops hurt by the rockfall.

    The White Mages begin casting Protect on everyone as the storm of weapons fire continues to pour on the Ebon Night, the vast majority of it plinking useless off his scales. Only the mass rifles seem to succeed in piercing the monster's heavy hide, but the holes they create are small and the amount of dragon to kill is big.

    The prawns fail to rip out the Power's eyes, their TK pull is simply too weak against whatever force is keeping the dragon together. The melee fighters have managed to maneuver themselves into position and are poised to strike.

    The Psions are too busy communing with the pillar and Cheryl to take other actions.

    The Ebon Night's eyes flash.

    "Points of light... Pure intentions..." he growls. "Disgusting. Imperfections in a sea of black. Your holy magics have no place here. Allow me to drink your pain."

    Suddenly all of the White Mages gasp and let out agonizing screams as their bodies unravel into nothing, their skin flayed off, then their musculature, then their bones. Only Lyla and Elaine survive as Re-raise brings both of them back breathing, but their eyes are haunted both from the immense pain and the vision of their friends' gruesome deaths.

    "And you... since you want to be a healer of the sick..." the Ebon Night growls as the Command Crew member with the Medigun is scooped up with telekinesis. Shards of black crystal form from the air and lance into him, nailing him to the wall of the cave in a certain pose. "...be crucified, and watch your future die."

    Oh, I don't know... is one eternal damnation or salvation?

    The Ebon Night utters a screeching call that seems to devolve into a conglomeration of a million screaming voices as all throughout the battlefield, everyone drops to the knees and clutches at their heads.

    Nightmarish visions overwhelm your senses.

    Grotesque monsters devour your families.

    Horrible blobs of darkness fuse with and transform terrified people into terrible, half-formed creatures.

    Parents are flayed alive, their still dripping skeletons used as hosts for dark spirits that turn on their children.

    You feel something moving around inside of you, something alive, and hungry. The tearing pain grows as you rip open your shirt to see the dark flush of internal bleeding in your stomach...

    Planets are consumed as rifts to hell itself open up and spew infernal fire and their own demonic spawn to overtake and play with the hapless inhabitants.

    Your skin turns into a layer of maggots, burrowing into your flesh.

    Those twin glowing eyes... you've seen them before. They were under your bed as a child. They were in the shadows of the closet. They were watching from the end of the alley you feared to go down when you walked in the city. Even as you grew up, you always knew they were watching you. They never left. They hid. Until now.

    Vision after vision hammers you, and your training allows you to retain just enough conscious thought to realize that these visions were probably affecting everyone. The battlefield warps and twists, you cannot see beyond the visions, you cannot tell what is, and what is not.

    "It's not real..." Cheryl whispers, her presence in your mind. In a softer voice, she adds, almost surprised. "None of it is."

Only Douglas, the psychic team, and Spike remain standing currently. The psychic being shielded by Cheryl, and Douglas and Spike immune to the visions by virtue of the Silent Hill trials.

    "It is," Cheryl agrees. "I can't... I'm trying to get more help, but it's difficult... Hold on..."

    Some of the Command Crew scramble for arms even now.

    Surprisingly, the UNIT operative, one eye open and with shaking hands, reaches for his pistol and slaps it into your palm. "Give... Give 'im hell, sah... I'll... be along... momentarily..."

    Looking at the Silencers, you see them emerging from a stupor as well, though it looks to be of a different nature than the hell you just went through. Data too, is present, though the Lance is in the hands of a waking Silencer.

    "Brave..." the Ebon Night commends. "You have some stern stuff in you. I applaud that. Nonetheless..."

    The massive dragon scoops up a handful of SCP troops and begins dropping them in his mouth and chewing, one by one, apparently savoring both the taste and the discomfort the act gives your forces.

    Douglas and Spike make a valiant attempt, but fail to rescue the SCP troopers as Data runs for the Prawn suits.

    Cheryl grunts with exertion and a shimmering column of light appears in the cavern. When it recedes, the Brasta, Hyaku Shiki, six VFs, and Mad Cats stand where it was.

    "No time for snacks? Pity," the Ebon Night says, hastily finishing his gory meal before turning to face your war machines. Immediately lasers, missiles, autocannon, and particle beams launch at the massive monster, but space warps around him and each of the attacks miss, consumed by a perfect defense. The Ebon Night retaliates with another cone of darkness that melts away two of the VFs to oblivion despite their agility.

    One of the Silencers shakes off his stupor, grasps the lance firmly and hurls it at the massive dragon...

    Funny you say that, because that is EXACTLY the plan if you ever wipe. Before you got Pell and the Executor it was going to be Yellowman and his scouts. Oh well, spoilers.

    The Lance twists in mid-air to form an immensely long, perfectly straight spear that plunges through the Ebon Night's left wing and pins him to the cave wall. A horrid shriek of pain assaults your ears as the weapon hits home.

    "Yes! Great!" Cheryl mentally says. "It didn't hurt him as badly as it could have, but that lance-thing is helping me keep him pinned! You've got a little more time now, and I think I can... yeah, I can get some help! Do you want more VFs or Guts and the kids?"

    The Ebon Night reaches one massive clawed hand over and rips the Lance out of the wall, freeing himself as he tosses the weapon aside.

    "Trinkets!!! You think to wound me with trinkets!!!" he roars. Spike and Douglas manage to get close enough to fire with their Toxiguns, but the Aglaophotis-A seems to do little but irritate the beast. "...and squirt guns?! You really ARE children!"

    A whip of a gigantic tail sends Spike and Douglas sailing through the air to crash against hard rocks. Spike slips from consciousness with a groan, but Douglas holds on, barely.

    "Not letting you get to Cheryl..." he murmurs as he seems to slip in and out of consciousness. "Not... letting..." his eyes roll back in his head.

    Gondegal's translucent form shines over Darius and Star-Lord. He appears to be accelerating their recovery from the nightmare effect.

    Another pillar of light brings down the rest of the VFs, who begin to open fire while spreading out. The Ebon Night's form ripples for a moment as he pounces on one like a feral beast, tearing the mech apart with apparently little effort before swallowing the pilot whole.

A second later a devastating blast of energy flies from the powerful machine to the Ebon Night, searing off even some of its supernatural scales and causing it to roar in pain once more.

    With a howl of triumph, Darius and Star-Lord finally conquer the visions and stand, resuming their charge towards the Ebon Night. Gondegal floats towards Finalon now and begins to guide the elf out of his personal hell.

    Douglas gives out a feral roar as a giant bear with prismatic fur and glowing claws materializes out from him. The great beast immediately leaps towards the Ebon Night, seeking out a patch of flesh bare of scales thanks to mass rifles, and messily ripping into it. The bear himself is lost to sight, so great is the shower of gore his attacks produce.

    If the Medgun doesn't have any risky side-effects for overcharging non-Medic surgery modified people, then that may be a good idea.

    Speaking of Medguns, I hope BLU has respawned by now. If their spawn timing is right, they may have avoided the dark fear wave aura thing that Ebon Night just did.

    rolled 89 = 89

    Finalon draws in a shaky breath and stands with Gondegal's urging, the spirit setting his jaw and vanishing into a formless light that wraps around the Black Arrow as the elf draws it forth and notches it to his bow. He pulls back the string and concentrates, his elf eyes searching for a vulnerable spot... and finding the ever widening circle of mutilated flesh, bare of scales, caused by Douglas' persona. Aiming at the bear patch, Finalon whispers.

    "Black Arrow, you will not fail me, and I vow to always recover you. You came from the bottom of a lake, and before, the bottom of a mountain. If ever you truly took the life of a great wyrm... go now, and speed well!"

    The arrow flies and vanishes within the bulk of the ebon dragon, even its more perfect defense failing against the legendary item. The Night howls in pain as it thrashes from side to side.

    "He's weakening!" Cheryl shouts. "We're almost there! Keep it up!"
    Something is keeping BLU from respawning, and you cannot activate Ubercharge without an advanced knowledge of the Medigun.

    You'd need to have someone rip it out from your hand, the cave shaking ain't gonna cut it.

    Still reeling from the arrow strike, the Ebon Night cannot react as Darius and Star-Lord leap onto the nightmare-king's hide and begin stabbing through the scales, their legendary First Age blades carving through the monster's hide with ease. Not only immensely powerful and magical, the blades bear with them a history of heroics and legend, and the memory of these myths carve into the metaphysical portion of the Night even as the blades cut his flesh. The Silencer that threw the lance grabs the Voiceless Spear off of a comatose Knight Inductor and begins to advance with it even as Finalon readies the Nameless Blade and prepares to do the same.

    "Do WHAT with my pay?!" Lyla shouts, her most dire nightmare about to come to life snapping her out of the visions. She smacks Elaine across the face. "Come on, Elaine! That sick scaled sonofabitch killed Mark and Leo. We have to make him pay! You- oh, right. Heavenly wind, carry us to the fountain of power! Esuna!"

    "ENOUGH!" the Ebon Night roars, ripping off Darius and Star-Lord from his hide and throwing them across the room. The impact kills Star-Lord instantly, but Re-Raise activates and puts him back on his feet. Darius does not die, but even a space marine cannot walk away from such a blow unscathed, and several of his enhanced bones are broken.

    Finalon and the Silencer halt their advance, scattering as the mechs open fire. The Ebon Night runs around in an odd pattern, not quite dodging the weapons fire as his body sustains a few hits... it takes a moment for you to realize that he is deliberately moving to where TG troops are still caught in nightmares, and allowing the explosions from the mecha munitions to kill them. He is killing your soldiers with your own weapons.

    "Bright light, shine down on bloody impurity!" Elaine and Lyla chant in unison. "HOLY!"

    Twin columns of light strike Ebon Night in the head, one in either red eye. The god-wyrm howls as it is blinded.

    Confused by contradicting orders, some of the mechs keep firing while others stop. More damage rips into the Ebon Night, its defenses temporarily down due to Holy, but at a cost of lives. But some mechs have a better idea.

    "Yes... I see. Thank you, Cheryl," Char murmurs as he draws his beam saber. Behind him, the VFs draw their knives, their pinpoint barriers going live. "Men! Form up. I hope you enjoy fencing..."

    With that, the Hyaku Shiki and the VFs fall on the Ebon Night, stabbing, hacking, and slashing with their gigantic weapons. Not a one escapes damage. The Ebon Night claws, bites, tail whips, body slams, and grapples each mech that comes into contact with it. But as badly damaged as the warmachines become, the damage to the dragon is getting worse by the moment...

    And latched onto him even now is a huge bear, ripping and tearing with his bear hands.

    Hm. Are Bear hands likely to heal a target, or harm a target? Better roll my Bear Lore to find out.

    Also we're autosaging.

    >but at a cost of lives
    You know those people killed due to mech-based weapons won't be salvageable, because their brains are damaged.
    Your ignorance has cost us lives that we can't Raise or repair.

    Have any regular troops that are there and up, get themselves and their comrades out of the giant melee fighting.

    Have those Silencers been able to find the Lance of Longinus yet?

    And someone make sure to get that medigun over to Darius and begin healing him.

    VP-99 is with Adam and the shard. It's ready to merge Adam and the shard back into the World Pillar on our order.

    Mr. Data, try to rouse any other conscious personnel and get those troops still affected by the horror effect back to the other end of the cave where the rest of the command staff is holding out. If you still have spare time, get that medigun from that command personnel and see to Darius. After that, start tending to the wounded.

    Has Data been able to get the AI on the Prawn Suits to override Pilot controls so that he can order them to scoop up personnel out of the danger zone?

    rolled 19 = 19

    The Voiceless Spear sails through the chaos to embed itself deeply into the Ebon Night's flesh. It lets out a chilling howl that slowly dies in volume until it screams in silence. Lashing out in retaliation, it blasts the assembled mechs away from it with a powerful blast of telekinesis. Two of the VFs are badly damaged enough that they go critical and are destroyed though their pilots eject safely.

    Data finally gets the autosystems on the prawn suits to work, and the power suits stand up and begin to strafe the dragon with ARC gun fire even as their occupants are still beset by nightmares. Then Data directs the suits to use their TK fields to pick up and remote control the dropped blades from the destroyed VFs. These weapons draw lines of blood in the dragon's sides.

    Cheryl, the Farseers, the Psi-Vets, Tosh, and the Psions suddenly each raise their right hand. Streams of energy begin to surge forth from them into the crystal, which in turn streams into Char's beam saber, temporarily empowering the fellow telepath's weapon as he uses his thrusters to dart in for one final attack. The beam saber glows molten silver as it is imbued with the combined psionic power of everyone manipulating the pillar, and slashes open the Ebon Night's belly. The dragon gives a silent scream as its form begins to dissolve into smoke.

    "He's getting away!" Cheryl shouts, her eyes opening. "VP, give me Adam! NOW!"

    Actually, even if Ebon Night went intangible, the Elder Thing's research suggested that the Lance of Longinus would still have an effect.
    Also, I want to make sure that it's found, otherwise we might lose it when this place begins to collapse, which I think Ebon Night will try to do.
    >> Anonymous 01/09/12(Mon)00:09 No.17471290

    That's right! Holy affected Wesker even when he was in smoke form.

    Another dose of holy might affect him enough to disrupt his concentration or somehting.

    wait, is he still putting energy into terrorising our guys?

    maybe we can try and trap him somehow? like a communal effort!

    Ebon Night doesn't seem to me like the kind of guy who values pragmatism over getting his kicks in. We can turn that to our advantage!

    VP-99 floats over and hands the shard over to Cheryl, who takes it in hand, looking at it with a face torn by emotion. One of the X-COM vets puts a power suited hand over hers. It is joined by a farseer, then Tosh, then a psion, then another farseer and vet. Cheryl blinks, sets her jaw, and nods, pushing the shard into the pillar.

    It clicks into place like a puzzle piece and the Ebon Night utters a silent scream before finally the Voiceless Spear's enchantment fails and his voice bellows from his throat once more.

    "WHAT HAVE YOU DONE?!" the Ebon Night demands as the pillar's light grows blinding and wings of pure energy begin to unfurl from it. "You can't... You'll destroy the world just to slay me?!"

    The pillar shatters into countless pieces as the blue light turns white and washes over everything in sight. Your own vision gives out and you float blind once more, but this time in a sea of light instead of dark.

    So, actions:
    Data gets the Prawn suits to use their TK Fields to try to contain Ebon Night.
    Lyla and Elaine hit Ebon Night with a double holy.
    Silencers still look for the Lance of Longinus.
    VP-99 gets Adam to Cheryl and the World Pillar.
