"However I am not one of your targets so you have no reason to fight me and kill me and even if you did you won't get paid a thing for it right? So let me grab my things and I will be on my merry way." Shazam said.
(Wait is Hit gone or did you meant Shazam?)Oh the pain. Is this what I'm up against? Either way I gotta find one of those Senzu beans I heard about then I can give on to Kal. Might need some more for the other guys. Shazam crawls away to find the Senzu Beans. (How do I roll for a search check?)
Right these are the real deal! I better go bring these to the others. But I can't just leave Korin and his chubby assistant unconscious. Plus Korin probably knows where the Ultra Divine Water is. Plus they might have more Senzu Beans. If not seven is probably enough for now er six minus the one I'll have to give for Kal. Shazam then pops a bean into the cat and fat samurai's mouth.
Damn it must not be it. I guess I might have to wait till Korin is conscious again. But I have to bring a Senzu Bean to Kal first. Shazam then moves out and goes to the Lookout and walks slowly towards Kal and helps him chew the Senzu Bean.
"You got knocked the fuck out man!" Shazam exclaims. He then coughed "Well those three launched a combined attack that badly scorched you and rendered you unconscious. Leke got so mad that she turned Super Saiyan and destroyed all but one of them with a single attack. Luckily I brought you back and got these." after finish explaining he holds up the bag filled with only six beans left.
"Senzu Beans. Magical beans that can heal wounds, restore your energy, and make you full for 10 days. I got it from Korin's Tower which is right below the Lookout. You see Korin is regarded on this planet as the God of Martial Arts so to speak. Besides these beans he also has a special type of water that if you drink you can gain a power boost. Unfortunately I met someone else while I was there." Shazam explained.
"Besides Korin and some other guy who were both knocked unconscious there was this guy in a long coat claiming you guys were his targets. He disappeared in a split second and the next second I know I had been fisted in the stomach and was in so much pain I thought I was gonna die and then I was on the ground trying not to lose consciousness. I could tell from his bored expression he was taking it seriously he was holding back. He told me his name was Hit and that he was the greatest assassin from Universe 6 and he told me if we stop messing with his two employers that he would spare us all and tell his employers the job has been done. Take a guess who are the two that hired him." Shazam explained.
"Yeah he definitely worked for Towa and Mira. He was so fast too maybe even faster then my Instant Transmission. I don't know if that speed was an example of his power or some technique but I unable to sense him the moment he disappeared. Luckily I found this bag of Senzu Beans off of the unconscious guy next to Korin. I also gave one to Korin and the guy because I didn't just wanted to leave them there like that. But now we have six left best to give spread them amongst the team." Shazam said holding the bag of Senzu Beans.
"I agree. I think we should let them release Garlic. But get ready and prepare for his arrival with some training before they though. Hopefully by the time they're successful then Hit tells them that the deed has been done and leaves and then we may stand a chance. I'm gonna fly there because spending most of my energy using Instant Transmission to get to Kal didn't work so well the first time. " Shazam explains. He then flies off to Leke's and Android 3's location.
3: "No kidding! You look pretty good for someone on death's door, though." He casually works out the kinks in his neck, having not even broken a sweat during that whole mess. Literally. It's in question if he can at all.
JokerJay779 wrote: "The power I did feel from him is extreme. Which is why I'm gonna go train in Korin's Tower until Korin awakes. Maybe then he can let us use his Ultra Divine Water or may even know another solution. We may not be strong enough to beat Hit if we were to drink it but we'll at least be stronger then Garlic though." Shazam suggests.
3: "Why would I? I like to consider myself a pacifist... or at least, I really don't care much for fighting. There's a whole mess a' other things I'd rather be doing." He crosses his arms. "I finally find a way outta that dusty old basement to have a look around, and I get jumped by the Backstreet Boys right off the bat."
(I don't remember what 3's CHA is off the top of my head but I do know it's super low so...)
3: "None 'a your beeswax." He uncrosses his arms and sighs. "A'ight, but the second you're finished, we're finished, got it?"
"Weren't you paying attention to what I told you what Hit said. He said if we mess with Towa and Mira he will kill us. And if we don't he will go away and tell Towa and Mira he killed us. It will be best to wait for him to be gone and then save the Guardian. Plus that way we can surprise attack them since they think we will be dead." Shazam explains.
(Just in case I need a knowledge roll for this 12 + 7 Mystic profiency = 19 yeah that's good) Shazam decided to explain for them. "You see there is a guardian on this planet who lives on a floating platform in the sky that watches everything sorta like God but also sorta not." Shazam explains.
When the group is about halfway to the Lookout, they hear an ominous shaking behind them. A massive void opens up above Garlic Jr's fortress, visible from the Lookout. The void begins sucking in whole chunks of the fortress before a familiar-looking blast of magic (Towa's) hits it, causing it to reverse and start expelling things instead. A humanoid, pink-skinned figure also flies out of the portal...sounding out a resounding laugh that even manages to echo all the way to the Lookout.
"No no you are mistaken great Korin. I came here and found you unconscious. I was also beaten up by that assassin. However I found a bag of Senzu beans on that man and I gave two of them you two to heal you up. We are trouble Korin Garlic has been released from the Dead Zone. And we need your help. So please let us drink from the Ultra Divine Water." Shazam explains while kneeling down on his knees in the last sentence.
K: "Well, there's two. The first one...ain't real, kid. I tell people there's some magic water but really it's all about the training to grab it. I just get it from the tap. The real Ultra Divine Water'd probably kill ya."
Y: "Y'know, we lose a lotta friends when ya go around tellin' people that."
Shazam heads hangs down but then starts thinking Wait a minute. He then takes off his head reveal his green eyes with red cat like irises, an antennae, and two cat ear like protrusions since his ears are on the sides of his head. "The Ultra Divine Water doesn't apply to Majin's does it?" he asks pointing his thumb to his head.
"Drat. Well that is an issue. Guess I'll have to do it the hard way and train in that chamber place with the others. Glad to see you two are alright and up. Catch you two another time!" Shazam says giving them the wink and finger motion and flying off back to the Lookout with the others. "Yeah it turns out we won't be using the Ultra Divine Water." Shazam says.
"Well cause the Ultra Divine Water is hidden deep inside the tower and we don't have much time. Plus the Ultra Divine Water is also really harmful to drink. Majin's like me could probably drink it just fine." Shazam explains.
"I see but like I said Korin said it was hidden deep within his tower. Not unless one of us can manage to find it quick enough and bring it here. And I mean the real one not the jug on the stick that's just tapwater." Shazam says.
Ikari: "Hmm... I don't know how it would effect a Heran like me...or matter of fact any of us. Aren't we all unsure as to what would happen if we drink water? Is anyone here CERTAIN that they won't die from drinking it?"
...we could still test Blooper's ability. Although that may not be the best option since we'll need all the help we can get in fighting them...
Melait ponders his options for a moment and snaps
Of course! Those beans! We can test it immediately to see if it works and just give him a...Senzu, right? Anyways, we can test it, and then do it quickly with the Sacred Water. Even if we die...at least we'll save the Earthlings for a little while.
"Yeah that is a good idea. But even if that does work if we die those guys will be free to do what want and terrorize the Earth or hell even the universe. This could be our last stand." Shazam says the situation now going grim.
"Wait Hit said if we left them alone he would tell them he killed them right? Maybe they will stop going after us and do their own thing. Wait can people in the Hyperbolic Time Chamber be detected?" Shazam says.
"Well if we all hide in they will think Hit killed us. Then we come out with our Ki Suppresed and they will just think we are birds on the Lookout or something." Shazam explains while flapping his hands when he explained the bird part.
F: "...Two weeks. Leke, Saiyans are obnoxiously resilient and skilled at increasing their strength. If we hold off Garlic for an hour, how much do you think you could improve in two weeks in the Chamber?"
F: "A pair of demons hired an assassin named Hit to kill us, and he offered to spare us if we give up fighting his 'employers.' So Shazam is suggesting we hide so Hit thinks we're dead...but so far we haven't seenHit anywhere else."
"Well hiding so Towa and Mira the ones who hired him think we are dead. But yeah he did sorta just punch me in the gut and left. I don't know where he could be hiding at here tho-." Shazam then stops and then realizes there is one place here he can hide without being noticed. "Oh crap he might be in the Hyperbolic Time Chamber." Shazam says.
I don't think a direct approach will stall them long enough, sadly...maybe...hm...we could try to stall by negotiating the Dragon Ball. That could lead to them getting it, though. Granted, the Senzu will help us stall, but even they won't last long. Think...think...
F: "...Melait, Shazam, you're with me. We're going to cut them off before they get here. Panos, Blooper, give our plan a shot. Make that steam cloud with the Sacred Water, no time to test with regular water now. Panos, if Blooper needs help, help him. We keep them away from the Lookout until Panos and Blooper are done. Everyone clear?"
"Oh I am sorry Froid. It's just that wouldn't it be weird to have two Black Mages?" Shazam said resisting the urge to say she looked a lot like Freeza. Didn't want to seem racist that he couldn't tell the genders of their species apart cause they all look alike.
"You bastards! If those buildings had people in them you're gonna get what you deserve tenfold!" Shazam says angry at the senseless destruction. If there's one thing Shazam hates its people who destroy for the fun of it. Beerus is an exception since its his job.
Panos hangs right by Blooper, excited and elated and maybe a liiiiittle bit scared, but hopeful, so hopeful that this will save his planet. He's watching very carefully to make sure nothing goes awry... which it probably will, but still.
Yeah I will definitely need my barrier this time around. Shazam then forms a barrier around himself out of magic. And then prepares for any attack the Garlic Jr. and his father might have on him by going into a fighting stance.
Melait looks up in the sky and finally notices the mist. Suddenly he flies up into the air, spinning around in circles and points to Garlic. And then...he starts to sing while flying around and posing to the beat
Shazam looks behind the group to see Sansho and Vinegar and begins turning around flying backwards to mock the two. "Oh hey its the lucky ones. Although at this point your luck seems to have run out. Even if we spare you after we beat, you do realize your bosses will still kill you afterwards for doing something so unbelievably stupid? I would say run away but your bosses might hunt you down and kill you anyway." Shazam says with a really smug cat like face like this.
"Heck even if you do get the Dragon Balls and Guardian back they'll probably be still miffed of you guys doing such a dumb mistake they'll kill you and might go hire some replacements that won't do the same thing again." Shazam says. (Just in case I need to roll another Persuasion check (Rolled a 10 + 1 CHA = 11 Not bad)
"Well we're about to be joined with the others. You'll be heavily outnumbered. So the chances of doing that are pretty slim. Your move." Shazam says grinning at Sansho and Vinegar. (One more try 11 + 1 = 12 will this work?)
(Oh I am fine with that! Roll 7 + 4 DEX = 11 well better then last time. Also since I had Magic Barrier on in the last fight before the Dragon Balls and the Guardian came into play does this mean I start out with Magic Barrier?)
(Oh okay then that's fair.)
"And just like that the cavalry is here. I gave you two a chance to play nice and be friendly. I will consider letting one of you live but these guys. Yeah they might not." Shazam says.
As the door opens, pure power radiates from it as Leke steps out but there's something quite different about her. Mainly the fact that she is quite obviously in Super Saiyan but... her hair's reached down well past her back, she's lost her eyebrows completely and mother of GOD, her aura is positively massive.
Shazam then turns to noticed Garlic and Garlic Jr. here. "Wait when the heck did you two get here? I thought it was just us and the Two Stooges?" Shazam said bewildered (Seriously though you kinda forgot to include their entrance Random)
As Shazam sees that powerful blast he begins to wonder why the Supreme Kai of Time sent him and if he was even needed in the first place.
(So THIS is how it feels like to be a non Saiyan DBZ character.)
Jr. is struck by the Majin Kamehameha, getting knocked back a few feet but still a ways away from the opening of the Dead Zone. Garlic retaliates by simply firing a blast at Blooper, which fortunately goes wild and strikes the Lookout, blasting a hole in it.
D: "H-hey, I just got this place cleaned!"
Kal chooses to rush at Garlic Jr. with his sword, only to miss the slash...and immediately be held in a Full-Nelson by Mira out of freaking nowhere.
K: "Augh! What the-?! Where did he-?!"
Jr.: "Well it's about time you people showed up!"
Towa appears near Garlic Sr.
T: "Well we weren't about to miss the finale, were we?"
"No! NO! NOOOOO!" Shazam is furious now seeing Towa and Mira interfering and transforms to Kaioken X20 and then begins charging a mouth blast. "IM GONNA FIRE MY ULTIMATE ATTACK!" he launches a beam of energy at Mira hoping to launch him in the Dead Zone.
(Accuracy Roll 18 + 4 Dex + 3 Kaio-what?! = 25 *laughs*)
(3d6 roll is 9 + 3 from X20 = 12 well better then nothing)
"Damn it! My rage has blinded me! He's in there because of me!" Shazam said angrily then repeatedly banged his head into a wall behind him screaming "WHY! DID! I! THOUGHT! THAT! WAS! A! GOOD! IDEA!" saying each word each time he hit his head on the wall screaming "Why!" repeatedly with every hits after.
Crusher Volcano - When you would use Crusher Ball, you may first throw out up to 6 weaker Crusher Balls for 2d6 each before firing a final, full-power Crusher Ball for 25 ki, the final ball dealing 4d8 damage instead. You must have enough ki for at least one extra Crusher Ball and the final, full-power Crusher Ball to use this move. Each weaker Crusher Ball costs 5 ki and the final one costs the usual 30 ki.
Mira, still off-guard from throwing Kal, is only able to deflect a handful of the Crusher Balls, getting struck by 3 small ones and the big one. He's knocked closer to the Dead Zone but manages to avoid being pulled in.
Jr.: "I hope you enjoyed pulling that little stunt because you won't be doing it again!"
Garlic Jr. throws a series of energy rings at Melait, who must attempt a Will save (d20 + WIS mod).
"Calm down Melait if we manage to send them all to the Dead Zone you can take your anger on me by beating me up. It was my fault I just thought that Towa would just use her magic to reverse the portal and get out easily like she did to get out Garlic Jr. They been ruining things for a very long time and I was sick of it. So I wanted to throw Mira as a big middle finger to Towa. But I was so blinded with rage I completely forgot that Kal was still in his grasp. It's my fault he's in there. And once this is over we are gonna get him out. Don't worry though I won't make another mistake like that again." Shazam said making overly long speech and one of his few moments of seriousness. He knows when the time is right to be serious and cocky. But now things are really serious.
"We will man just calm down and think rationally. We don't want you making a similar mistake. If you're not careful you could get sent into the Dead Zone too. Think about how your friends will feel then man!" Shazam says trying to rationalize with Melait.
Panos has gone from fuckin' stoked to absolutely devestated in mere seconds. He gapes at the Dead Zone that just engulfed that poor, innocent boy, whimpering softly as the realization that Kal is doomed washes over every neuron in his massive, aching mind.
His beady eyes begin to glaze over with the thin, tell-tale haze of tears. Perhaps he'll end up throwing this attack due to being emotionally compromized...
"...n-... nn... nom de Dieu de putain de bordel de merde de saloperie de connard d'enculé de TA MÈRE...! AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA–"
uhhh NOPE he's actually going for the Neo Tri-Beam, rrrrright at Mira.
The Tri-Beam slams right into Mira, obscuring him in a cloud of dust and energy. Then the next. And the next. Eventually, after all six subside, Mira is looking slightly worse for wear...but much closer to the Dead Zone.
Garlic decides to take matters into his own hands, finally dashing at Leke of all people to punch her square in the chest...and it hits! Leke takes 10 damage.
