[F 25 - PP - The Easter Lads] <<Easter Special Dungeon>>

Recommended Posts

The battle was over and the spoils of war were quickly being divided between the party. Before Seul’s eyes flashed a reward screen, and without hesitation he accepted, spawning a greatsword by his side. When he grabbed the hilt the metal burst to life with a roaring flame, and the swordsman took to swinging it around with glee like a child who received a new toy. Embers trailed behind each slash from the mighty weapon, and soon he would turn his excitement to the others.

“I got a sword! A sword that can be set on fire!”

Finally, a unique weapon was in his possession. Though he wondered how well it would mesh with the build he was working toward. Glancing over its actual stats, he thought perhaps he could change the slot of bleed for something else. Having fought without accuracy for so long, he really didn’t feel like going back to just attacking blindly. In any case, it was just something to consider. Putting his new blade away, he waited to see what the group would do next.

Searching for Chest - ID# 150777 results: Loot: 16+6=22 [Chest found]

As the others were looking over their spoils for the first battle, Shield began combing around the edges of the warren to find their next path. So far, there had not been any obvious exits. There was the way from which they had come, and there were two walls that were now completely covered with flowing caramel. The far end of the chamber was bare sandstone with no breaks or openings. He made his way back to the center where the cheesy, shopping mall Easter display still stood, now with four empty bunny costumes left behind by the monsters they had fought. Through the scene, there ran a white picket fence, and at the far end, there was a big chair that certainly the 'Easter Bunny' would have sat in for photo opportunities.

Shield walked around the back side of the chair and knelt down. Where he expected to see space between the legs of the chair, there was only solid wood. He stood up, stepping closer and cautiously lifting the chair. "Well, what do you know? Looks like we found a little extra treasure, everyone!" He lifted the chair the rest of the way off and tossed it aside. Opening his inventory, he pulled out a golden key, very eager to open the chest to see what was inside.

Baldur let out a smirk when Beat teased him about cleaning up his mess. It was good that they could joke like this. They were settling back into the old habits and rhythms they had only just started to build up from before. The gaijin samurai whipped his blade around, freeing it of toffee and chocolate, before sheathing the blade.

"Looks like I got some Bloodclot Throns armor. Not something that I need, but maybe useful for... uh... someone..."

The armor wasn't anything Baldur could possibly use, or adapt a build around. It was just too counter to his style and build.

"If anything, maybe it'll make a good item to stash in the guild vault once we get one.'

Then the Samurai noticed Shield had found another chest.

"I should have known you'd be able to find something like that in a place like this." He shook his head ruefully, "Has your luck with these changed yet, or are you still jinxed?"

Opening Chest - ID# 151410 results: Loot: 7+7=14

  • [12-15] = (Floor * 100) Col, (5) materials, rare weapon, (2) rare consumables

Total Loot:

Col: 2,500
Materials: 5
Rare Weapons: [151410a]
Rare Consumables: [151410b] [151410c]

Shield knelt down and held the key out in front of the lock. With a puff of gold dust and a chime like ringing coins, the key vanished. The lid of the chest opened with a click and a slight creak of hinges, and a display window appeared with the listed contents of the container. Shield made a little bit of a face, but he was not wholly disappointed. "So the chest was fairly underwhelming, the tanks got DPS and support items and the DPS got tank items. Glad this whole encounter worked out." In the end, he knew that they would make do with what they had. The irony was not lost on him though, and the realization twisted at the corner of his lips in a wry smile.

Collecting the contents and dismissing the chest, Shield returned to his feet and gave his neck a good stretch in both directions. "I suppose that's one down and two to go then. Shall we?" He made his way to the far end of the chamber from which they had entered. While he had not had a great deal of time to inspect it during the fight, now that he was up close and personal, he could see what appeared to be a pressure switch in the wall and inscription written across the sandstone.

"Try your luck, little rabbit."

It was a very simple but entirely unhelpful. There was no visible door anywhere in sight, and no sign of a keyhole or handle. No visible door mechanisms either aside from the pressure switch. He inspected it closely. It was made of the same stuff as the wall. He gently pressed with his hand. It didn't move. He leaned into it harder. Nothing. He pressed his shoulder into it and heaved, but it still did not give. He turned his attention back to the inscription.

"Are only the rabbits from the fight able to open this?" he mused aloud, rubbing his jaw and feeling the texture of his beard as he thought it over. "That would be poor design... Revealing a puzzle after you've already destroyed the key..." He paced slowly from side to side. "If I were a rabbit... how would I try my luck? Push other spots on the wall? Maybe hope to get lucky guessing like that?"

Out of curiosity, he began pressing his hands against other portions of the wall. Each to no avail. "Well, I'm clearly not a very lucky rabbit-"

Lucky rabbit... Lucky rabbit's foot. Goddammit.

Shield rolled his eyes and lifted his leg, planting the flat of his foot against the pressure switch which slid easily into the wall. A seam appeared in the wall beside where the plate had been and a stone slab twice his height and easily that wide slid back a few feet and then began disappearing into the wall, leaving an open tunnel that led deeper down into the earth. Sighing at how embarrassingly simple the answer had been, he shook his head and began down the next flight of stairs.

The descent was a long one, and each time they reached a landing, Shield thought it would be the last, but by the fifth landing it became clear that the person who designed this portion of the dungeon truly believed in suspense. Finally, the next landing brought a much needed sight. In the wall opposite the stairs, a high arched entryway had been carved into the stone. Shield quickened his pace, eager to advance to the next stage of the dungeon. "I believe the next fight was something to do with a giant marshmallow something," he said, peering through the semi-dark of the tunnel to try to make sense of the other end. So far, all he could see was the yellow back wall of the next chamber.

Perhaps there are more rooms ahead before we find the next encounter.

Through his feet, he began to feel a rumbling in the ground. They were getting close, even if they couldn't tell from the view. The rumbling continued, and then suddenly stopped, interrupted by a long, high pitched whistle of some sort, almost like a tea kettle. This died away, to be replaced once again by the rumbling. They emerged into the next chamber, and it was immediately clear that they yellow something he had seen was not a wall. There in the center of the room, there sat a fat, squat marshmallow chick. It did not appear to have any eyes, or at least not visible ones, and its body swelled and shrank in time with the deep rumbling and the whistling sound. It was snoring.

Before he knew it the group had moved on to the next arena in the dungeon. Eyeing his energy bar the man shrugged. The previous fight had reduced him to less than half, but it was just one of the drawbacks that came with wielding a two-handed sword. 

In the middle of the second zone sat a large creature, and it would seem that Seul would be the first to attack this time as well. Gripping his greatsword, he charged the soundly sleeping Giant Peep. Galaxy Destroyer tore into its sugary body, but rather than cut clean through, his blow almost seemed to be almost absorbed into its form. Placing a foot against the boss, he managed to pull the weapon free. All that work and only minimal damage was dealt. Saying he was disappointed would be putting mildly. 

“Tag in.” After cleaning the marshmallow clumps off his sword, he’d regroup with the others to pat @Baldur and @Beat on their shoulders. “Be careful, seems like that thing is good at cushioning attacks… Well, mine anyway.”

Seeing how little damage Seul did because of the high mitigation this monster has, Baldur decided to switch things up a little, since the stakes were lower. He switched his grip from the Warden's Fury, to the Muramasa as he charged the giant peep. Instead of the pure white and gold light of his previous katana, when the power of Muramasa was unleashed, it came spilling forth from the saya as a blood red, almost crimson color. The sword felt powerful in his hand, and it would only continue to grow as they moved through the tower. It had been too long since he had used the blade.

The arc of red rent the giant, cheerfully colored peep, and tore aware a comically large check of marshmellow, sticking to this sword as he pulled it fee.

"Ugh... I always hated peeps." Baldur tried flicking the blade as he would to remove blood, but it wouldn't come free.

"Disgusting."
