Arc I Side Story 5: A Mutual Partnership?

Post by SSJRandomMaster on Sat Feb 24, 2018 6:34 am

It had been quite some time now since their last mission, and it was high time Fluut and Lusk did their part as well; at least, that was what Fluut felt, going in. Xalia had cleaned up a town on her own, Nero and Arashi went on a mission and came back with a gem that was apparently a very big deal, and even came back with a new recruit, Kigo. Though Fluut didn’t expect to yield nearly the same results from the mission he and Lusk had chosen, it was still going to be fruitful.

Verbatim and a few of the scientists had compiled a small list of parts they needed for this and that, to improve things around the base. Neither Fluut nor Lusk knew what any of these parts were, which is probably why pictures and descriptions were supplied next to each item. Three items were actually needed, the other two were optional.

According to one of the previously rescued hostages, Molly, this facility they were heading to was swarming with droids of all sizes, and had a computer like the one that had been destroyed at the base she’d been rescued from. Dr. Verbatim only knew that the parts they were looking for were at the base… and that particular base was likely one equipped with a robot generator of some kind. But that was the extent of what Fluut and Lusk could find out without being there.

Being superpowered, it was no challenge at all to drop out of the plane that had given them a lift so far. They were a short way from the base, and would have to quickly move the rest of the way. Unfortunately, unlike the previous base they’d invaded, it seemed this one wouldn’t offer nearly as much cover. This base was in the middle of a desert wasteland, somewhere in the American Southwest.

With very little time to spare, the two Namekians began to advance on the base, Fluut sporting a rather odd-looking backpack that he’d been supplied with to store the items in, to protect them from damage. One of the other scientists had supplied them with a tiny thing they called a flash drive, which was also in the backpack…

“Let’s hurry and get these things…” Fluut said, “They said they can use whatever we recover to help us more, but the items on the list are more important…”

Without proper cover during their approach, Lusk considered the odds of them reaching the bases innards undetected. Neither were particularly adept in stealth, and this wouldn't make thing's much easier.

"Perhaps we should attempt a full on attack, aim to surprise them..." Lusk suggested aloud, "Perhaps you could attempt Nobiru Ude? "

"My giant form?" Fluut questioned, blinking, "You're suggesting we open with that?"

Lusk rubbed the back of his head, "The idea is no good then..."

"It's...not your worst, at least." Fluut attempted to reason, "Do you recall when you suggested we--"

"Dig our way in..." Lusk sighed, remembering the past mission...Xalia enjoyed poking fun at him over the occurrence.

"No need to rule anything out, but let's reach a proper scouting location before making any plans on entering..."

"Right..." Lusk agreed, a bit embarrassed at his sincere input...

He glanced around the desert, and frowned. The Earth was capable of such beauty, Lusk sometimes admitted to himself that it surpassed that of Namek in many places, and yet it also had a place like this?

It was all dead earth, hot and cracked, "sand" spread out everywhere else as far as the eye could see. The Sun was beating down hotter then anywhere else Lusk had visited, though it didn't bother him any.

Lusk attempted to bring the topic to his friends attention, but Fluut's mind was elsewhere...and not on the mission either? Lusk could tell that much. He cept quiet, knowing Fluut would focus once they were close enough to perceive the base...
------------
OOC: Used the system which is the basis for Beta II system's name for going giant, Nobiru Ude "to extend". How Lusk will refer to the process of enlarging itself (Lusk himself doesn't have the form) .

Random OOC: Also looked up the Daizenshuu's description of Giant Form on a whim.

Super Giant Body Arts
First Appearance: 186
Category: ability
People: Piccolo
Special Characteristics: A technique where, taking advantage of the abilities of his race, he is capable of concentrating the nerves throughout his entire body, invigorating the cells throughout his body. When he becomes gigantic, he lets out a scream of pain due to the excessive additions to his body. Where this technique excels is that even though he becomes gigantic, his speed doesn’t change. However, though the offensive power of his blows is great, his target is small, making it difficult to attack. A technique he brought out during the finals of the 23rd Tenkaichi Budoukai after losing his temper over his inability to win. (Daizenshuu 4, p.50)
Anime: In “Super Saiya-jin Son Goku”, the Super Namekian Slugg used the same technique. (Daizenshuu 6, p.70)

And extra,

Stretching Arms
First Appearance: Chapter 173
Category: ability
People: Piccolo
Special Characteristics: An attack that takes advantage of the unique abilities that Namekians have. It’s an attack used by freely expanding and contracting the cells in his body through his own will. His arm stretches as if he were trying to throw his raised fist, and captures distant opponents. Coming out all of a sudden, this attack surprises enemies, capturing them and then pulling them forward before they have time to dodge. However, when an opponent has seen through this technique once, it adds a chance that they can counterattack. Piccolo brought this out during his fight with Krillin at the 23rd Tenkaichi Budoukai.

Fluut and Lusk continued to cross the desert, heading for the base. As they traveled, Fluut began to look around.

Strange, thought Fluut, I thought for sure there’d be something out here by now to wait for us…

Lusk was looking around as well, for the same reasons as Fluut. They both had the same idea, it seemed.

“It’s quiet…” observed Fluut aloud, “Too quiet. No signs of anything, and we’re close to the base…”

Down the path they were heading, both could see this was true. The building stood out like a sore thumb on the horizon, and very soon, they would be there…

As they approached the building, without cover around them, Lusk became weary.

“Things are quiet…how should we move in?” Lusk asked.

“Let’s just get a bit closer…” Fluut suggested, considering the situation. They closed the distance as two blurs, kicking up bits of sand as they landed every dozen feet or so.

Suddenly Fluut picked up on some movement, catching Lusk’s shoulder with both in mid air and redirecting them to land behind a nearby short hill. Both lay on their stomachs, as Lusk glanced over to what Fluut had noticed.

Sentries, just around around the corner they couldn’t make out from farther back. They each glanced around, taking in the area carefully. While they lacked any emotion or higher thought, both partners considered the droids on edge…

“Do we try to hurry past them, or attack?” Lusk whispered, “Bringing any kind of power cores was optional in the mission…”

“Hmm…” Fluut thought things over carefully, glancing between the sentries. Their weren’t many…but fighting them would ultimately prove pointless. “We’ll sneak past them, more sentries are inevitably inside.”

Lusk agreed and as soon as the droids each turned their heads, both were off towards the notable entrance. Fluut used the building as a blindspot from the droids, Lusk noting this and attempting as well, but in a stroke of bad luck one of the sentries stepped around the corner and caught them red handed.

“ALERT. ALER---” A swift kick from Lusk knocked the droid off it’s feet, but the message was delivered…

As the few sentries gathered around them, the two comrades took up combat positions, back to back.

Lusk’s turn!

As the sentries buzzed around them, kicking up sand in their constant movement, Lusk counted them. Glancing around himself and Fluut, he concluded: “Thirteen…”

“Fifteen.” Fluut corrected. Lusk smiled slightly, before jumping off. The sandy ground collapsed slightly from his movement, nearly throwing Fluut off, Lusk honing in on a particular cluster before they could attack.

And indeed, they didn’t know what hit them. With the Namekian dwarfing them in size, the sentry at the end of Lusk’s heavy kick was sent crashing into another of its own, both falling down in pieces. Glancing through the wreckage , Lusk’s hand flashed through the pieces…

Lusk attacks Horde of 5 A with a Basic Kick, inflicting 16 damage! (HP 25 -> 9)


Reacting as quickly as its programming allowed, three droids rushed Lusk straight on to retaliate. He glanced at each of them, before choosing and raising a fist.

“HAAAHH!!” he hollered, and just as a sentry reached him he jammed his large fist into its side, cracking the metal surface, and slamming it into the robot adjacent to it. That sentry then collided with the one to its side, all three falling apart as air pressure knocked up all the nearby sand.

Lusk burns an AP (4 -> 3) to attack Horde of 5 A again with a Basic Punch, inflicting 15 damage! (HP 9 -> 0)


Through the airborne screen, Lusk scavenged further. In total, he’d collected all five of the cores which powered the horde.

Lusk passes an Intelligence check (21 Vs DC 15), collecting 5 Power Cores from Horde of 5 A’s remains!


Fluut's turn!

There were only ten droids left now, soon to be less, Fluut noted, as he too, leapt off. Fluut came down, twisting between salvos of blaster fire as he went, coming down with his foot out, snapping the unfortunate soul(less) that was under it clean in two. Fluut turned around as two more members of the pack of five (now four) began to charge him, but Fluut was ready, punching one’s head off while kicking the other in two like the first.

The last two targets were similarly no match; Fluut running up to one and punching it so hard that, despite its metal frame only denting and cracking, it still toppled over, more or less as lifeless as ever. The other one met a similar fate. As it backed away, as if scared, Fluut took off, kicking up more sand. He then grabbed it by the head and slammed it into the ground. Though it wasn’t going to get up—its head having come off from the force behind the slam, Fluut still took to his secondary task, checking the metal corpses for cores, easily harvesting them due to the damage inflicted to the frames…

Fluut attacks Horde of 5 B,  inflicting 20 damage! (HP 25 -> 5). He burns an AP to attack again (Fluut AP 5 -> 4), inflicting 14 damage! (HP 5 -> 0) He then picks through the remains, finding 5 more cores!

The E.L.A. had chosen its average grunts well. Had they known fear they might have pissed oil onto the sandy floor at how easily the two Nameks shredded their forces, but instead chose to blast away at Lusk, who took notice and quickly started weaving between the fire. Seeing that their blasters weren’t working, the horde instead chose to target Fluut, bum-rushing him en masse.

That was their biggest mistake.

Fluut’s ears twitched as he picked up the shifting sand, having just picked up a fifth core. He saw them coming and readied himself. Like Lusk, he wove between the charging bodies, one, two, three…

The last two were spread out in just the perfect way for Fluut to bifurcate them by swinging his arms around, grabbing both of the droids before slamming them together hard enough that one lost an arm, one lost a leg, and both lost their heads as their metal frames cracked from the impact. The two metal husks fell to the ground, destroyed.

Horde of 5 C attacks both Lusk and Fluut (AP 1 -> 0), but misses both targets! On the second attack, Fluut scored a natural 20, allowing him to counterattack for 13 damage! (HP 25 -> 12)

Lusk's turn!

They'd done very well so far, each of the sentries falling before they could manage to land a single blow. Sand filled the air that they could have used it to their advantage, if their opponents were anyone else.

As two droids jumped up and came down towards Fluut with purpose, his ears twitched and he glanced up without worry. Through the cloud of particles, his tall friend appeared and smashed straight through one of the droids, before planting his fist into the second.

Landing down, legs sinking a fair ways into the ground, Lusk waved his arm around to get the droid off.

Lusk attacks Horde of 3 C with a Punch, inflicting 10 damage! (HP 12 -> 2)

Re: Arc I Side Story 5: A Mutual Partnership?

Post by Dr. Angryslacks on Sat Mar 03, 2018 2:21 am

The afternoon desert sun rested near the top of the sky over a small town out in the middle of nowhere. The town itself was unremarkable most of the, split even in half by the highway leading through it, a few stores, restaurants and a hotel that barely made by. However, the town was also home to a yearly arts festival that attracted people far and wide, generating enough revenue and tourism to keep the town going for another year.

Hundreds of stalls and artists were clustered around the east side of this town, showing off paintings, sculptures, music and dances to thousands in attendance. One of these stalls was staffed by a teenage boy in a purple T-shirt, orange sweatpants and a pair of white, fairly new sneakers and a set of sunglasses. His skin was pale and his buzzed hair silvery-white. He sat in a lawnchair under a handmade umbrella made entirely of sheet metal and piping that used coolant to keep the metal cool to the touch.

A small plaque nailed to a post sat near him detailing who he was and his project was. The sign listed his name as 'Otis Superstar' in a large, conspicuous handwritten print while the rest detailed that his project involved using scrapyard junk and industrial equipment redesigned into functional furniture and accessories, like a television powered by a diesel engine that also used the heat generated to double as a convection oven. As the TV was set to a local station, the oven was working away towards baking pretzels for both Otis himself and for patrons to eat.

Sadly despite his ingenuity, Otis knew that first prize was not going to go to him. Not while another artist further down the row was there. An overweight, bald man somewhere in his forties with a thick New Jersey accent was stealing the show with his... public exhibit of the beauty of the human form. "C'mon now, ladies. I didn't drive for two friggin' days and nine hundred dollars to burn my ass off in the sun so I could be ignored. I can do that crap at the club at home and get some barbecue chicken wings that uh, fell on the floor and usually sittin' out in the open for eight hours, but they're still better than this!"

Otis found himself scratching his side with his hand, his fingertips tracing ridges and rivets grafted onto the surface of his body, but invisible underneath his shirt. It was a habit at this point, even though he knew they were there, he found himself instinctively checking, like he wasn't convinced. 'This is not going anywhere,' he thought. 'I might get second place and some notoriety, but I need to aim higher with my new project.' In his other hand rested a medium sized soft pretzel, a warm, salty food may not have been the most appealing thing in a desert climate, but the young artist was not going to let it go to waste.

Taking a bite out of his snack, he considered the risky direction of an idea he had involving re-purposed military hardware, and molding it into something that looked cool and over-the-top, like a golem made out of assorted machine guns, with laser cannons webbed with cables and wires that did not do anything but looked like they did. Otis knew of an ELA military base out in the desert a few dozen miles from the town, he did not know what it was for, but it would be his best bet for parts. 'There is nothing out here that important, nobody would care if some post in the desert lost some equipment.'

Having finished his pretzel, the artist stood up from his chair and walked away from his stall and towards the highway, abandoning his projects. Once he reached the shoulder he broke out into a sprint that quickly surpassed the speed limit. Whatever hesitations he had were gone as he diverged onto the sand and kicked a streak of dust behind him, he was committed to the next step of his dream for fame and fortune. The base was assured to be fortified, but Otis was not just talented in creating. As an orange glow from his eyes dimly pierced through his sunglasses, he was eager to show just how capable of destroying he was.

Fluut sighted the final member of the horde that waited outside. He quickly rushed up to it, and without wasting any time, proceeded to deck it with a big, green fist to its face, knocking its head off at its shoulders. Looking over the mess he and Lusk had created, Fluut began to rifle through the corpses for their cores, finding five more to add to the collection.

Fluut finishes off Horde of 5 C, inflicting 17 damage even though only two was needed! He also finds 5 more sentry cores!
----------------------
Before the two Nameks could decide their next course of action, something big, metal, and familiar came charging in from nowhere, both Nameks springing to action. Having somehow gone unnoticed before, the Big Sentry outside had caught up to the fight, and prepared to engage the two green men...

Big Sentry intrudes!

Lusk's turn!
------------------
Seconds before...

Otis had, of course, managed to make it most of the way to the base without incident. However, unlike Fluut and Lusk, he had run into a slight complication. Three little creatures of different colors; blue, white, and green, respectively.

Without much else in the way, they leapt into action...

Jinkouman (Lv. 1 / 48 HP / 70 KP / 5 AP)

Caiwareman’s turn!

The blue Saibaman launched itself at the intruder with a scree, claws extended, but like many times before, its attack was thwarted by the swiftness of its target, Otis leaping through the air to avoid.

Caiwareman attacks Otis, but misses!

Jinkouman’s turn!

Jinkouman tried to pick up the slack, but alas, its attack was missed too. It launched with a punch, but Otis was already well out of its way, already back on solid ground as the white beast landed on the ground, utterly at a loss for how it missed.

Jinkouman attacks Otis, but misses!

Otis’ turn!

The artist forced himself to a halt, sand kicking and shallow trenches where his feet dragged into the ground. 'Oh crap, I was totally wrong about the defenses.' Otis turned to face the monsters that had just attacked him, each scurrying to close in and surround him. 'Those things have to be from outer space, but why would they be here?'

Otis did not expect an answer and spent no time trying to get one, they just tried to attack him and he could not stand for it. He turned his attention to the closest alien, the white one that had just tried failed to hit him, and swiftly jabbed his hand into a claw shape in it's direction. Almost immediately after a flash of light erupted from the artist's hand and connected with the white monster's abdomen.

An ordinary large caliber pistol likely would not have done much to harm these aliens, but the resulting wound could only be compared to one caused by such. A thin jet of blood squirted out from a spontaneous hole surrounded patch by immense bruising on the creature's torso as it's legs buckled. Although certainly hurt by the attack, the creature just as quickly returned to its feet and continued to move forward, a sharp wince on it's face the whole time.

Otis had already diverted his attention to a new target as soon as his initial attack connected, the artist charged forward to the green alien that had yet to attack and decided to be the first to strike instead. His attempt at a sucker punch was instead met with thin air as the creature disappeared before impact.

Indeed, the green beast had avoided Otis’ attack, but not for long. As Otis tried to locate it, he chanced to turn his body slightly, moments too late. The foot of the creature made impact with his chest, causing a cough from Otis as he slid backwards on his heels from the force. That one… hurt.

Saibaman attacks Otis with a kick, a critical hit! Otis takes 18 damage! (HP 89 -> 71)

Trying to capitalize on the moment of pause the heavy blow had given Otis, the blue beast leapt forward again with its claws extended, trying to shred Otis’ flesh, but once again met empty air, not even managing to rend the clothes on Otis’ back as he evaded damage once more.

Caiwareman attacks Otis, but misses!

Jinkouman’s turn!

Clutching its wound in the center of its chest a bit, the Jinkouman eyed Otis with renewed ferocity. It too, leapt forward with the same intent as before, but its chest suddenly flared in pain, collapsing mid-attack. Otis had started to move, but stopped as Jinkouman hesitated to attack, refocusing…

Jinkouman attacks Otis, but misses!

Otis ignored the dulling pain in his abdomen as he sprinted on the sand at high speed. Making a turn towards the green beast, he held out the same claw as before and shot another energy bullet it's way. Unfortunately for the artist, the beast successfully evaded the attack like before, having flinched just a split second before impact before disappearing elsewhere on the battlefield. The only trace were puffs of dust from a pair of three-toed footprints in the sand.

Clearly these monsters were more intelligent than they initially let on. Otis made a low groan at the discovery, 'Might need to save that one for last, the other two don't seem as tough but if they surprise me with that green one around I'm a goner.'

The green beast, seeing an opening, immediately launched himself at his opponent again. This time, however, Otis had been more careful to be on his guard, and wove out of the way just as the creature’s claws pierced the air where his face was a moment ago.

Lusk’s turn!

Both Namekians looked over the Big Sentry, despite its more complex design as a android, it had clearly been put together the same as the ones fought previously. A truly mass produced “artificial human” (the more literal term for android).

“They know we’re here…” Lusk commented, unsure of how they could have done better…

“I’m not so sure…” Fluut responded, thinking over the situation “More likely it was suppose to be on watch, but trailed off…”

“Then we’d better take it down quickly!!” Lusk said,feet immediately leaving the ground in a grand leap towards the new obstacle. A white aura came to life around him, before moving to coat his left leg.

“It’s ready for--” Fluut tried to warn, running out, and Big Sentry plucked the leg out of the air before a kick could properly be thrown. With Lusk being lifted by the leg his body fell down towards the ground, and while most could be held in air by the sentry… his height was to great, his bald head scraping through the sand.

Lusk attempts a Charged Kick (KP -6 115 -> 109), but fails his Manipulation check!

With Fluut approaching, Big Sentry whipped Lusk out towards him, letting go and using the man as a projectile. Fluut was prepared, catching his friend by the shoulders and noting the androids quick charge towards them. “Lusk…”

“Right…” Lusk replied simply, channeling ki into his right leg as Fluut spun around and swung his large friend at the robot. Using the momentum, Lusk kicked out with the empowered foot, succesfully jamming it into the foe’s jaw.

Lusk burns an an AP (3 -> 2) to successfully attempt another Charged Kick (KP -6 106 -> 103) on Big Sentry, and inflicts 19 damage! (HP 94 -> 75)

Big Sentry’s turn!

Big Sentry slid back from the force of the improvised maneuver, but like the many large sentries before, it was far hardier than the average sentry, much more able to withstand punishment. Thus, it skidded to a halt, just as Fluut set Lusk back down on solid ground. Seeing an opportunity, it rushed forward, aiming to attack with all its might.

“Lusk,” Fluut warned without changing his pitch. Lusk, surprisingly, was fully ready for this attack, and without missing a moment, wove out of the way and threw out a devastating roundhouse in the same attack. The Big Sentry was once again pushed aside, though slid back considerably less.

Big Sentry attacks Lusk, but Lusk rolls a critical evade and counterattacks for 13 damage!! Big Sentry fails to Endure after spending an AP! (Big Sentry AP 3 -> 2; HP 75 -> 62)

“I’ll take it from here,” Fluut said, cracking his knuckles and launching forward at the Big Sentry…

Fluut’s turn!

The Big Sentry had scarcely recovered when Fluut was on him, but met his punch with a block. It responded in kind with a punch of its own, but Fluut parried the attack, strafing around the big hunk of metal as he traded punches. Strafing one last time, Fluut tensed his legs in preparation, and watched as the big robot threw a punch far too wide. Fluut let out a straight right kick, one that hit far harder than Fluut expected, a hideous crunching noise accompanying the impact.

Fluut attacks Big Sentry, with the Big Sentry botching its defense roll and taking a critical hit worth 40 damage! Despite burning an AP it fails to Endure!! (Big Sentry AP 2 -> 1; HP 62 -> 22) …

And Fluut isn’t done yet! (Fluut AP 4 -> 3)


Seeing an opportunity, Fluut launched forward, golden Ki crackling around his hands as he did so. The Big Sentry, a massive dent in its chest from Fluut’s kick, finally came to a halt, digging its feet into the ground so hard that small, deep trenches opened up at its heels. The moment of pause proved devastating, as Fluut unloaded a massive golden spray of energy directly on it! When the smoke cleared, all that remained of the Big Sentry was its smoking, badly damaged torso and head, all of its limbs blown away at different lengths.

Fluut attacks Big Sentry with Explosive Beam Cannon (Fluut KP 107 -> 82), inflicting 58 damage! Big Sentry desperately tries to ward off the incoming attack with its final AP, but fails! (Big Sentry AP 1 -> 0; HP 22 -> 0)

Battle over!! … but Otis is still in battle…
-------------
Caiwareman's turn!

Caiwareman began to throw all its weight down at Otis after leaping into the air, only to once again miss. Luck was just not on its side, it seemed.

Caiwareman attacks Otis with a Basic (Heavy) Physical Attack, but misses!
Jinkouman's turn!

Jinkouman did the same as its blue brother, only to meet similar results... But that was the least of its worries, for Otis seemed to be doing something..!?
Jinkouman attacks Otis with a Basic (Heavy) Physical attack as well, but misses!
Otis' turn!

The artist backtracked speedily and gained distance on the three creatures, a stream of dust surrounded him as he did. He held out his right arm and pointed at the blue beast. His fist split in half and his fingers rapidly receded into his hand. The gap made in his wrist widened until his entire forearm was a smooth, textureless uniform cylinder with a metallic tab jutting upward holding a thin crosshair.

With the blue monster dead in his sights, Otis fired. An orange-red oblong sphere erupted out of the arm cannon with a fiery flash and raced straight ahead towards its target at great speed. The monster only had time to react to the transformation of Otis's arm, but had no hope of doing the same when the artist's fired.

In a split second the sphere had reached it's target and less than a foot from direct impact it exploded into a burning cloud. Immediately after dust was kicked up in various spots scattered around, chunks of red hot metal sizzling the sand around them into glass and marked by think streams of smoke. Closer inspection revealed some of the darker embers were not pieces of shrapnel, but rather the unambiguous charcoal remains of the blue beast.

The artist reverted his arm back into a hand and smiled at the spectacle of annihilation he had just performed. "That's one," he said to himself quietly.

Otis uses Flak Cannon on Caiwareman (44 -> 18), inflicting 64 damage and destroying it completely.

Saibaman’s turn!

The Saibaman, incensed at the fall of its friend, let out a screech of anger. It rushed Otis, ready to try to shred him with its claws, but once again missed its mark. It hunched over in a beastly way, looking for any openings at all…

It seemed its earlier successful attack was but a fluke.

---------------------
The white beast was similarly pissed at its friends fall and extended a hand that soon became obscured by a purple orb. It launched this orb, but Otis was easily able to get clear, the blast hitting the ground where he’d stood. However, the beast quickly lifted its other hand and fired a similar blast, hoping that it had caught Otis off-guard. And he nearly had. Otis looked up and noticed the attack coming, moving out of the way at the last possible moment, the attack just barely grazing his arm. Otis slid to a halt, ready to attack…!

Jinkouman burns an AP (5 -> 4) to attack Otis with two Basic Energy attacks (KP 70 -> 66 -> 62), but both miss!

A mild burning sensation radiated through his arm, the artist found it easy enough to ignore, but another close call like that could not be allowed to happen. Remembering his plan, Otis prepared to finish the white monster immediately. His suspicions about the true danger of being distracted were confirmed by the creature's energy attacks. No doubt the green one was capable of doing the same and had the speed to connect a hit.

The white creature was in his sights, its torso marked by branching trickles of blood. Otis bent his right arm and placed his hand near shoulder level, forming the familiar claw shape before moving his left hand outwards in front of his right and doing the same The gestures vaguely resembled that of shouldering a long rifle, but had he been holding one the weapon would have only been supported by the gaps of his thumb and index fingers.

The white monster, having already experienced what being shot with only one hand and struggling to stay standing as a result, knew well enough to avoid whatever stunt the artist was about to do as it was no doubt much more formidable.

A thunderous bang and orange light flashed from the left hand of Otis, and the briefest flinch that marked his target's attempt at evasion was met instead with an even wider hole violently opening on it's chest. Blood flowed out as expected, with the surrounding flesh turning darker all around. Otis could not see it but even part of the creature's back split in a nasty blister, the projectile did not fully pierce the monsters body, but the wound was undeniably mortal.

Despite the substantial damage he had caused, Otis failed to defeat the beast in one final strike. It was now left in a shaking, disoriented stupor, but as long it was standing it was a threat. Although having little need to conserve his energy, Otis charged towards the creature and landed a kick in its chin, sending the monster airborne across the sand. The artist moved ahead of the beast swiftly and when in range threw an uppercut connecting cleanly with its back and launching the creature into the air. Whatever life it had was gone and it dropped to the ground in a thud, its body lying in a crumpled state.

Some of the monster's blood splattered on Otis from the attack, leaving speckled stains on his pants from the kick, as well as on his arm and fingers from the uppercut. The artist recoiled slightly from seeing and feeling the thin, watery fluid. 'I hope these things don't have germs.'

Jinkouman takes 25 damage from charged energy blast (64 -> 48), 5 damage from light physical attack and 7 damage from light physical attack, inflicting 37 damage total and killing the target.

Saibaman’s turn!

The Saibaman rushed Otis, utterly enraged, having lost another of its members. For a few moments, it seemed that this assault, too, would end in a dead Saibaman, when Otis overextended on a punch, leaving himself plenty open to the Saibaman. Yet again, Otis had the bad luck to be wide open to another Saibaman kick that sent him skidding across the sand on his heels.

It seemed its earlier successful strike was not a fluke after all.

Saibaman attacks Otis, once again striking a critical hit due to a failure on Otis’ part! He inflicts 12 damage! (HP 71 -> 59)

Otis winced in pain from the creature's foot impacting against him. 'I am really hating this one, but at least I don't need to worry about distractions.' The artist dashed towards the beast at great speed, just as it was doing the same to him. Both locked in a game of chicken ready to deliver their best hit to the other. Within the span of a few seconds the winner was decided.

With quite possibly the advantage of having longer arms than his foe, a single punch directly into the solar plexus of the creature marked Otis the winner of the joust. Strained gasps for air came from the beasts mouth, wide open in surprise and from the pain. The artist attempted a follow up energy blast mere inches from the monster's face, but that latter successfully pushed itself downwards in time for the blast to overshoot it.

Otis hits Saibman with heavy physical strike for 10 damage, then misses an energy blast, inflicting 10 damage total.

Saibaman’s turn!

The Saibaman eyed its opponent from its new position, before leaping up from all fours. Its head suddenly split open, spraying a greenish-white liquid at Otis. Otis had the presence of mind to avoid it, and was glad he did when the fluid ate into the sand at where he was. However, looking towards the corrosion didn’t exactly leave Otis in a good position, and thus he was wide open for the Saibaman’s charged energy attack.

It seemed that Saibaman’s luck  was  turning around..!

Saibaman attacks Otis with Acid Spray, but misses! (KP 32 -> 16) It burns an AP (AP 3 -> 2) to attack Otis with a charged Ki blast (KP 16 -> 8), inflicting 15 damage! (HP 59 -> 44)

The previous burning sensation that was localized only to part of Otis's arm had now enveloped most of his body. His clothes felt like touching a light bulb that had been running for a few minutes, and the sensation proved overly uncomfortable. 'I need to use what worked last time.'

Otis retreated to a safer distance away from the green monster and once again contorted his arm into the shape of the cannon he had used to annihilate the blue monster moments before. In almost an exact repeat of events the artist aimed and fired and the monster reacted and attempted escape. Unlike the previous victim of Otis's devastating technique, the green beast easily enough evaded the oval energy charge by a few feet by the time it reached him, what appeared to be a grin of satisfaction briefly grew on its face knowing that Otis had wasted his shot and was wide open to counter-attack.

The grin and the creature itself was immediately rebuked by being consumed in the resulting fireball expanding into its side. That neither time Otis had hit his target directly when the charge detonated suggested proximity was the main factor. The battlefield was once again sprinkled by shards of hot metal and patches of glass.

Even though the artist had succeeded in hitting his target, a sense of disappointment and frustration stamped out any relief he had when it was revealed the monster, although peppered with sizzling metal fragments deep in it's skin and numerous cuts and burns lacing its body, had survived and forced itself to its feet. Otis pointed a claw with his other hand to shoot a bullet, only to find the monster still was capable of dodging that in its state.

"Oh come on! Why is this thing so hard to kill?!" Otis said aloud to nobody, the only other being who could hear him made a grin.

Otis attacks Saibaman with Flak Cannon for 21 damage, and misses energy blast, inflicting 21 damage total.

Saibaman’s turn!
Saibaman takes 2 damage at the start of its turn due to Internal Bleeding! (HP 7 -> 5)

Trying to take advantage of its target’s frustration, the Saibaman stood up, charging a purple energy shot in its hand. Otis watched the Saibaman intently, waiting for the first sign of it faltering. That sign came right as the Saibaman went to shoot, it suddenly hacking up blood as its internal injuries took hold. This caused it to close its eyes for a moment in pain, and its shot to miss wide as Otis charged his own attack in response, firing it off. The burning ball of energy made contact with the Saibaman, killing it the rest of the way on impact.

Saibaman attacks Otis with a basic energy blast (KP 8 -> 4), but Otis counters with a basic Ki attack as well (Natural 20 Reflex), inflicting 14 damage! (HP 5 -> 0)
---------------------
Battle over! ... for now...

With the last immediate threat defeated, Otis relaxed his stance and stood alone in the desert. He reached into his left pocket fishing for an item and quickly pulled out a snack size bag of Art McMucklesen's brand pretzel nuggets. Salty food was under normal circumstances a poor choice to consume in a desert, but the artist did not care and wanted to treat himself before moving forward to the base, if he needed water badly crossing the distance back to town would have been no trouble. Otis squeezed the bottom of the bag until air pressure burst open the top and started eating them one by one. Once finished, he found one of the still red hot pieces of metal on the ground and placed the bag on top to watch it melt as well as to dispose of it before heading onwards.

Otis eats pretzels and gets pretzel health recovery gains.
