Wily Sphere - Wily's Quarters
Wily's quarters are rather spartan and organized for someone most people consider to be a mad scientist. It is obvious that he spend little time here. The main door opens into a small foyer, glancing to your left there is a coat rack, lined with five or six identical white lab coats. After the foyer, the room opens up into a large library/den area. Books are stacked on shelves that reach the ceiling on every part of the wall. Three computers at various points in the room flash and blink ominously. In the far corner of the study is a well-worn plaid recliner which faces a large-screen television. I guess even Dr. Wily likes to relax every now and then.
A door on the west side of the study is slightly ajar, and you catch glimpses of the smaller bedroom beyond.
Dr. Wily [Indy] [RM]
Wily's Personal RChamber
South <S> leads to Wily Sphere - Elite Barracks (White level).
Knight stands outside Wily's corriders, a bit nervous. Where's the unquenchable ego and pride gone? Well even before Knight was faced with this situation, Wily was the only person who would cause Knight to be humbled by his mere presence. Still, what he had to confess to the good doctor now would make any Robot Master quake with fear in anticipation of. Still, he is simply unable to hide it any longer, Wily's own programming has made sure of that. He pushes the buzzer on the outside (or raps on the door should there be none) "Milord, tis Knight Man. I apologizeth greatly for disturbing thee in thine quarters, but there is a matter that I must bringeth to thine attention immediatly..."
The Dark Lord himself sits upon his Dark Throne, seeing all with his great Eye, wreathed in flame.
Or not. Maybe he's just an old man, sitting on his chair in a bathrobe and shorts, watching tv. He calls to the door, "Enter."
Knight Man actually ulps in worry, oO(Here we goeth, all or nothing) Knight Man enters his masters chamber, once again cloaked in his armor, unlike for the past few days where he was in his human disguise. The face that Tron gave him out of humiliation he has been wearing an awful lot. But now he faces his Lord, looking as he did when he was created. "Again mine humblest apologies for bothering thee on thine.. private time Milord. But I needeth to inform thee of this right away, privately." He clears his throat... not that he needs to, being a robot, it's just a reflex in his behaviorable subroutines (woo, technobabble) "Milord, as thou dost know Tron Bonne has apparently been possessed by the Stardroid Terra's spirit. And Sir Enker hast given orders to apprehendeth her should we be given the chance. Howevereth, for the last several days with Miss Tron on the Gesellschaft in mine human guise." Of course she has yet to be aprehended as well. Knight would continue explaining now, but chances are Wily might throw a fit, and he'll wait for that to calm before he resumes. He also puts himself in pre-grovel stance in preparation.
Dr. Wily narrows his eyes. "You have been WITH Tron Bonne? Repeatedly? Why have you not bothered to inform me, eh?!" Wily stands up, pulling out a cane! "You fool. How do I even know even know I can trust you anymore, HRMMMMM?!" He thumps the heavy, blundgeoning end in his palm. "You may very well be... INFECTED. You could be relaying information to her now! She could know the very location of this base! You IDIOT!" He smacks Knight upside the head.
Knight Man commences groveling, and is struck. Thankfully Wily trying to beat around Knight with a came with his old man muscles, and with Knight's blunt resistance, doesn't hurt, but Knight is smart and acts like it does. "Milord I sweareth to thee mine loyalties have not been altered. I art as loyal to thee now as I was the day I twas e-ringed by Zero when everyone thought thou were dead. I haveth reasons for mine actions, and that tis why I cameth here. Tron knows nothing more than when she did before this incident. And she hast swore multiple times she would not useth her knowledge against us. That is one of the main reasons I haveth been around her, to maketh sure she does not." Knight has more to say, but he prepares for another cane whack in the meantime.
[Radio: (A) RMBroadband] Cappella transmits, " Well, well well. It looks like some one will be ripped to shreds by the end of this. How rather amusing, if I do say so, myself."
[Radio: (A) RMBroadband] Pharaoh Man says in a rather weak voice, "What do you mean?"
Dr. Wily raises an eyebrow. "As I surmised one under the influence would say." WHACK. "Get up. If you are not under her control, as you say, then you will still do as I say." He scratches his stubbly chin. "You will return to Miss Bonne, or whatever affectionary she demands you call her. You will report back to me, and me alone, everything that occurs while in her company. What she says, what she does... if she still eats, or so much as chips a nail, you will inform me. This information is be told to no one, not even an Elite. I will dispense this information as I see fit." He is silent for a few seconds more. "Secondly, if Enker or any other ranked person demands anything of you concerning Tron Bonne, direct them to me. You are under my direct orders, and those supercede all others." He waggles his cane. "Understand, boy?"
[Radio: (A) RMBroadband] Cappella transmits, " Let me put it this way, as easy as it maybe. I have been always waiting for this time, a time where Tron has come by all means too much of a problem that one finds ameans to dispose of them."
Knight Man stands at once "Yes Milord. If that be the case, then I shouldst inform thee of what she has been pondering as of late, it may prove to be quite dire, for everyone. As thou dost know, the initial riddle lead everyone to believe there would be Ten artifacts, Terra is one, and the 8 planetary Stardroids would clearly be the other. That being the case, the remainder twould be horrifingly obvious."
[Radio: (A) RMBroadband] Pharaoh Man transmits, "Oh, so Tron is now a heathen?"
[Radio: (A) RMBroadband] Snake Man transmits, "She hasss one of thossse pendant thingiesss. Are you sure you CAN dissspossse of her?"
[Radio: (A) RMBroadband] Cappella transmits, " A heathen? Hmm, perhaps not exactly what I was thinking.."
[Radio: (A) RMBroadband] Pharaoh Man transmits, "What pendants? The Pharaoh has no idea of what you are talking about."
[Radio: (A) RMBroadband] Cappella transmits, " Who said anything about me dealing with her?"
[Radio: (A) RMBroadband] Beta XO Metal Man transmits, "I know, those Pendants could even make RF fodder dangerous."
Dr. Wily nods. "Sunstar. I do see the problem in this. I would imagine that his would, of course, be the last one." He smirks. "Can you imagine the power in that one medallion? The power to destroy a planet with but a gesture." Wily taps the handle of his cane. "Above all others, I must have that one medallion! The power of Sunstar will be mine!"
[Radio: (A) RMBroadband] Pharaoh Man transmits, "... Wait... What are these pendants?"
[Radio: (A) RMBroadband] E.R.W.I.N. transmits, "They're your mother, Pharaoh."
[Radio: (A) RMBroadband] Punk transmits, "*fzzz* Too bad those pendants won't make that faulty wiring job you call a brain any keener, Metal Man. *krackle*"
[Radio: (A) RMBroadband] Pharaoh Man transmits, "The Pharaoh is a god! He has no mother!"
[Radio: (A) RMBroadband] Beta XO Metal Man transmits, "They give the ower the power of a Stardroid."
[Radio: (A) RMBroadband] Pharaoh Man transmits, "... Stardroids?"
[Radio: (A) RMBroadband] E.R.W.I.N. transmits, "'The Pharaoh' is a dumbass with an ego."
[Radio: (A) RMBroadband] Beta XO Metal Man transmits, "*sinckers*"
[Radio: (A) RMBroadband] Pharaoh Man transmits, "Unlike you, who is just a dumbass?"
[Radio: (A) RMBroadband] Beta XO Metal Man transmits, "Uhoh the son of Ra is not pleased!"
[Radio: (A) RMBroadband] Pharaoh Man transmits, "He sure isn't!"
[Radio: (A) RMBroadband] E.R.W.I.N. uses an exact match of Pharaohs' voice. "I am Pharaoh Man. Here me roar. On second thought, you are not worthy of hearing me roar. Go sit in the corner and make me a margaurita. Wait, no. Alcoholic beverages are below me!"
[Radio: (A) RMBroadband] Pharaoh Man transmits, "... Who said that?"
[Radio: (A) RMBroadband] Snake Man transmits, "Let'sss take a vote: Who'sss crazier, Gemini with thisss pendant, or Pharoah Man all the time?"
[Radio: (A) RMBroadband] Punk transmits, "Ph-*fzz*-oh Man's cool points just went up a notc-*pop*."
[Radio: (A) RMBroadband] Pharaoh Man transmits, "What pendants???"
[Radio: (A) RMBroadband] Pharaoh Man transmits, "And The Mighty Pharaoh is not crazy!"
[Radio: (A) RMBroadband] E.R.W.I.N. is still Pharaoh! "Yes I am."
[Radio: (A) RMBroadband] Snake Man transmits, "Hasss The Mighty Pharaoh had hisss head ssstuck in the toilet the lassst week?"
Knight Man was afraid Wily would think like that "Aye, Sunstar twould be the most deadly and powerful of the set, and it would likely also be the one to hold the most sway over the possessors mind. Even with a mind as great as thine own /may/ be affected. It is Tron's view that whoever dost attaineth the final pendent twould become the enemy of the entire planet. Should someone from outside our family attaineth one, I do believeth Tron would become our active ally again to help combat it. Since she possesseth the spirit of Sunstar's mortal enemy. *pause* At any rate Milord, your bidding involving Tron shalt be done."
[Radio: (A) RMBroadband] Pharaoh Man transmits, "... The one who just used The Pharaoh's voice will pay dearly when found out."
[Radio: (A) RMBroadband] Pharaoh Man transmits, "Well, at least he wasn't demoted for being a lazy bum."
[Radio: (A) RMBroadband] E.R.W.I.N. <-- Son of Ra. "Can you smeeeeeeeel what the Pharaoh is cooking?!"
[Radio: (A) RMBroadband] Pharaoh Man transmits, "Dammit! Shut up!"
[Radio: (A) RMBroadband] E.R.W.I.N. <-- Son of Ra. "Gonna cut yew."
[Radio: (A) RMBroadband] Pharaoh Man transmits, "Shut up! Shut up! Shut up!"
[Radio: (A) RMBroadband] E.R.W.I.N. <-- Son of Ra. "Shut up! Shut up! Shut up!
[Radio: (A) RMBroadband] Pharaoh Man transmits, "The one who is using The Pharaoh's voice although he isn't The Pharaoh is an idiot."
Dr. Wily nods. "Then begone. And if possible, see if Miss Bonne would not be adverse to aiding us during the quest FOR Sunstar. Her power would be greatly appreciated."
[Radio: (A) RMBroadband] Stone Man transmits, "I don't know. Anyone able to mimic that exact tone of arrogance is pretty genius."
[Radio: (A) RMBroadband] E.R.W.I.N. <-- Son of Ra. "I agree. Cease this use of my Holy voice immediately, Infidel!"
[Radio: (A) RMBroadband] Snake Man transmits, "Ussse that pea brain of yoursss, Pharaoh. There'sss only two people (if the word can be usssed) on this channel who have the capability of copying your voissce. One isss Ssstar Man. And the other isss..."
[Radio: (A) RMBroadband] Pharaoh Man transmits, "What tone of arrogance?"
[Radio: (A) RMBroadband] Stone Man transmits, "Sorry. Thinking aloud."
[Radio: (A) RMBroadband] Beta XO Metal Man transmits, "The other is ERWIN>"
[Radio: (A) RMBroadband] E.R.W.I.N. <-- Star Man. "Whoa, dudes! You've found me out! That is most bogus, Snake Dude."
[Radio: (A) RMBroadband] Pharaoh Man transmits, "One of those who can copy The Pharaoh's voice is a peasant, and the other is an idiot."
Knight Man nods and bows "I shalt see what I can do in that regard Milord. And any other discoveries or odd behavior she dost present thou shalt know immediatly. Thank thee." Knight then turns to leave, well that wasn't so bad. Now he can only hope that this situation turns out for the best...
[Radio: (A) RMBroadband] Snake Man transmits, "Give it up, Erwin."
[Radio: (A) RMBroadband] Pharaoh Man transmits, "Hah, then it must not be Star Man, for using the voice copying ability to put the blame on someone else is an old trick!"
[Radio: (A) RMBroadband] Pharaoh Man transmits, "But that doesn't mean that this Star Man isn't a peasant. He's just smart enough is not to dare use The Pharaoh's voice. Where can The Pharaoh find the one who used his voice so he can teach him a little lesson?"
[Radio: (A) RMBroadband] Stone Man transmits, "But what if they just want you to THINK that they're pretending to be Star Man to make you think that they AREN'T Star Man?"
[Radio: (A) RMBroadband] E.R.W.I.N. switches between Pharaoh and Star. "Give up this trick then, peasent." "Dude! You totally suck!" "Yes. The Pharaoh, indeed, sucks. Hear me, Robot Masters! The Pharaoh gives his permission for his most Glorious Buttocks to be kicked!"
[Radio: (A) RMBroadband] Snake Man snickers.
[Radio: (A) RMBroadband] Pharaoh Man transmits, "GRAAAAHHH!!!! You shall pay for that! You are all a bunch of unworthy peasants!!"
[Radio: (A) RMBroadband] Punk statics, "ERWI-*fssthh* *fzz*-op f**king ar-*crackle-crackle*"
[Radio: (A) RMBroadband] Beta XO Metal Man transmits, "Punk? Are you all right sir?"
[Radio: (A) RMBroadband] Stone Man transmits, "Haven't you heard that imitation is the highest form of flattery?"
[Radio: (A) RMBroadband] Pharaoh Man transmits, "Haven't you heard that annoyance isn't a way to show flattery?"
[Radio: (A) RMBroadband] Cappella transmits, " Now now dear Pharaoh, if you continue you will soon find out who is the greater being between the both of you."
[Radio: (A) RMBroadband] Punk transmits, "Yes you idio-*hiss* I'm in sp-*errr*, you moron."
[Radio: (A) RMBroadband] E.R.W.I.N. is back to himself. "Hey, Punk! You know, in space, no one can hear you suck."
Dr. Wily returns to his chair to comtemplate.. .and watch Passions.
[Radio: (A) RMBroadband] Pharaoh Man transmits, "Oh no, a peasant tries to threaten The Mighty Pharaoh, oh cruel fate, how will The Pharaoh ever survive?"
[Radio: (A) RMBroadband] Pharaoh Man transmits, "Hah!"
[Radio: (A) RMBroadband] Beta XO Metal Man transmits, "Give me your location and i'll come pick you up in the shuttle sir."
Bonne Airship <Gesellschaft>
The bridge of the Gesellschaft is a wide open command center with a sweeping view of the world outside. The central control area is a circular trench of stations where the Servbots man their positions, with piloting, engine, and weapons stations. Within this there is a raised platform with a walkway and another tier above that. Jutting from this tier is the captain's position, dominated by a great wooden wheel. The Bonne's smiling robotic skull set on the wheel housing to watch over the command center. To either side of the forward Servbot stations are a pair of hemispherical navigation displays.
Corridors lead back from the bridge, leading to many other
parts of the massive craft. The main one of these being the Forward Hangar
Bay. Situated in the 'mouth' area of the Gesellschaft, the 'teeth' slide open
vertically to disgorge the flights of Drache that are situated in fighter
bays across the backs and sides of the hangar bay. Several large, square hatches
on the hangar bay's deck are clearly marked with red danger signs, the locations
from which the Bonne Ride Armors are launched.
Variable Assault Ride Armor <Glyder>
Gesellschaft - Glyde's Room <GR>
Gesellschaft - Tron's Room <TRR>
Gesellschaft - Teisel's Room <TR>
Gesellschaft - Bon's Room <BBR>
Gesellschaft - Vehicle Bay/Lab
Mainly he's gonna inform Tron of what just happened.
The Pirate Princess strides through the corridors, heading for the bridge... eyeing her Servbots.
...they are a little Jumpy, for some reason.
And thankfully, Fluffy is back in Teisel's room curled protectively by the broken person laying naked on Teisel's bed. ...yes, you heard me.
And Tron currently has /no/ idea of it or anything that was
Entering the Gesellschaft is Knight Man, or rather, his human disguise, Lance Princeton. Wait a minute, he's here? You mean he's actually not imprisoned or demolished after confessing to Wily? Shock. Disbelief. Actually he caught the Doc in a good mood, but regardless he needs to inform Tron of what has transpired. It might change a few things.
Glyde Loath carefully is polishing away at his Glyder, having gotten it repaired before returning it to the Gesellschaft today, the armor sparkling and mirror bright now. So of course, he's admiring his perfect visage in the wing surfaces.
Bon Bonne is just kind of..laying in a lump on the bridge, sparking
wildly at random intervals. The Kobun have, by now, begun simply detouring
around the giant heap of robo-baby, although every now and then one tries
to move him out of the way. Baby is hurt bad. Love baby. Give baby cookies.
The Pirate Princess slips onto the Bridge and hmms softly...
Tron then looks to one of the Servbots, blinking rapidly as it dashes past. "...Why are you all so /jumpy/ today?!" Tron then sighs, and turns, looking to where Bon lays on the floor. Tron /BLINKS!!/ "BON!"
Tron /dashes/ over to kneel beside her brother, even as glowing energy sparks around her. "Oh Bon... your hurt... what happened to you?! ...Shh... I'm here now."
Tron and Bon up on the Bridge, while Knight is entering the Hangar where Glyde polishes his Glyder... should be interesting.
Tron quickly lays her hands on her Brother, leting her energy slip out into her poor 'Little' Brother... slowly using her power to detect all of his injuries in a way that is second nature to her now.
Knight Man steps into the hanger, and heads towards the bridge. He glances at Glyde, Tron had mentioned he'd be her ally, so he's not surprised he'd be here. But has something more important to do, and just continues to head towards Tron. Great, she's occupied, at something important. Well this is urgent, he can speak while she works. "Miss Tron..."
Glyde Loath idly glances over as someone else board, frowning a bit...but the Servbots don't seem to react immediately, so he presumes it's another of Tron's friends. At least this one's eyes aren't glowing. He's not yet aware Tron is up, but he figures that he might want to see what the newcomer is doing, so he absently follows him up towards the bridge.
As Knight and Glyde enter the Bridge... they are greeted by one /INTERESTING/ sight.
The Pirate Princess: Glowing bright Green... the gentle Green of well tended Grass... the gentle Green of Leaves in full life... the Gentle Green... of Life.
That Energy passes slowly down through her body, and into the body of the large being in front of her. Bon Bonne. The energy crackles gently through her little brother... feeling like nothing so much as a gentle warmth spreading through him. And with that warmth, comes Healing... ...and a vanishing of Pain.
Tron uses her Powers, the very Life Energy pulsing through her litteraly supercharging Bon's body. Wounds seal, as if the metal was alive and healing itself like normal skin... circuits are repaired... ...the body of the poor, broken Ride Baby is slowly, over a process of a few moments...
Tron, then, gasps for air as she pulls away, sitting back on her heels and sighing... panting painfully...
"...yes... Lance? What is it?"
Bon Bonne sits up abruptly, waving his arms around. "BABUU BAABUU!" <IT WAS GLYDE'S IDEA!> Yessir, folks, the ride baby is a doity rat. Then, glancing around fervently, he finds he's in the Gesellschaft, and that Mr. Thou and Glyde just walked in. "...Babuu..." <...Er...> Cue large sweatdrop and rubbing of back of neck..well, head, really, since Bon doesn't really have a neck.
Glyde Loath brakes, then sweatdrops as he hears the sudden burst of Babu'ing from up ahead, halting at the doorway. A bit unsure if he really wants Tron to see him. After all, it was his idea, and he didn't INTEND Bon to get so shot up, and it's not like he could have actually fixed him afterwards anyway...."
Knight Man hmms as Tron uses her power so extensivly, she should be careful. "Miss Tron I have returned from ...home after conferring from Milord, and I dost haveth some good news and bad news." He kneels and lowers his voice so that only Tron can hear, Bon too probably "Thankfully Lord Wily hast allowedeth me to remaineth here, so long as I maketh sure thou dost not maketh a move against the Masters as thou hast promised. I know thou shant go back on thy word, but so long as thou hast the pendant, Lord Wily hast assigned me to keepeth an eye on thee. I also expressed our fears about the possibility of Sunstar's pendent to him, and whilst he was in agreement that it would be dire should it fall into the wrong hands, he may become hellbent to aquireth it himself." He stands again "I do apologizeth for leaving so abruptly, but mine.. loyalty could not be ignored any longer. But I art here to assisteth thee again as I always was."
[Radio: (A) RMBroadband] Cappella transmits, " Punk dear? Mind if I ask you why you are in space?"
[Radio: (A) RMBroadband] Beta XO Metal Man transmits, "A very good question Cappella"
[Radio: (A) RMBroadband] Snake Man transmits, "Trying to find a vacuum equal to the one in hisss head?"
[Radio: (A) RMBroadband] Punk transmits, "On a *fzzll*-ission."
[Radio: (A) RMBroadband] E.R.W.I.N. transmits, "Mmm. Fizzilission."
The Pirate Princess shakes her head to clear it... slowly raising her head up to look at Bon... and smiles gently. "Glad your all right now... ...feel better?" Tron seems drained, but well. Slowly she then arches a brow. "...What was Glyde's idea? ...and why are all the Servbots so Jumpy all of a sudden? ...It's like something has them scared." Tron shakes her head, then turns it to look to the door, and to Lance... ...who thankfully for Glyde, blocks Tron's sight of him.
"Oh?" Tron slowly pushes herself to her feet, listening slowly to the words spoken by Knight. She uses Bon's large knee to help force herself up, looking to and studying Knight for long moments... then nods slowly. "...I see. ...I'm glad you did, Knight... Thank you." Tron smiles. "I'm glad Wily understands, at least... and maybe... well... if Wily is bent on getting /that/ pendant, he's going to have quite a race for it." Tron shakes her head. "Oh well... ...I'm glad your Loyalty won't be tested. Thank you." Tron smiles up to Knight... then notices something at last behind him. A bit of brown and gold.
"Glyde? What is going on here?"
Tron then looks to Knight. "I'm content with your keeping an eye on me, Knight. It's important to keep Wily as a friend, and least to me... and that will help a great deal. Thank you... your forgiven, of course, for leaving when you did. You needed to go, so i'm glad you went."
[Radio: (A) RMBroadband] Snake Man transmits, "And hasss everyone lossst their mindsss? Half the Elitesss and King have all fired themssselvesss off towardsss Marsss. Why would the ssstupid thing be on MARSSS?"
Knight Man nods. And then goes off and does something, uhh, to occupy him for about a few hours. Yeah.
