*Arachnidoc ambles up to the bar, and orders a Marguerita. Arthur gets out the glass, rubs salt on the rim, and fills the glass, before reaching for a lime*

Lime: Please don't cut me up!

*Arthur puts down Knife*

Arthur: I've never met a talking lime, before!

Lime: Oh, and Dragon Bartenders are a dime a dozen?

Arthur: Touche!

*walks in, sits down and orders a drink*

*listens in amazment to the talking lime and dragon*

'Wow, this place is amazing.'

That's ten-a-penny over 'ere, squire.

*Colin comes trundling in through the door*

Wait, wait, say that again?

*Colin comes trundling...*

Yes, that's it. Colin doesn't trundle, does he?

Jimi: Ah. He does now. Colin, since when have you been 4' 5" and had wheels?

Colin: I think it was the repair elves.

Jimi: I trust that you still have the weird buttons that teleport us to random places?

Colin: Err... I don't know. Shame, really.

Jimi: Shame? Colin feels no shame, Colin is eternally happy!

Colin: Not 'nymore.

Jimi: Right. Colin? Take us to deep, deep space.

*Pt-choooo-arodle-ran-gin random telelporting noises*
silvermoon
Oh no! Now we'll never find the muffins and escape this 16-bit quest!
JimiJimi
*Pt-choo etc. etc.*

*Colin and Jimi emerge from the smoke. Colin looks back to normal and seems happy.*

Well, I fixed Colin. Those repair elves aren't gonna screw with him again!

Anyway, who wants to come with me on a journey... OUTSIDE the bar, to find dried muffin remnance?
silvermoon
Sounds like fun! Wait, what do you mean by outside the bar? Like other threads?
JimiJimi
No, into the wilderness that is... THE DISUSED SERVER SPACE OF MATAZONE!

I've heard it's just like a foresty place.
silvermoon
Ah, I never would have thought of that. If it's a foresty place, we need torches!

*Lights torch off Arthur's breath*

Anything else we'd need?
JimiJimi
Not that I can think of. Colin can magically create everything else.

Anyone else want to join us?
Daria
I would, but I have an AA meeting to go to...
JimiJimi
What would that be, automobiles association, alcholics or arsonists anoymous?

Is it as scary there as everybody says? If anybody would know, it'd be you.

Eh, it's not that scary. But then again, I live there. Better ask Colin.


...

Maybe Daria is secretly a battery...
JimiJimi
It is possible.

Jimi: Anyway, Colin?

Colin: Yes, sir?

Jimi: Tell silvermoon what the storage room is like.

Colin: Nothing too bad. Just a piece of cheese tied to a cheese board with a bright light in its face, a dooms-day device, numerous inventions and to-be inventions, a couple of old matresses and Hitler's brain in a jar. Not much to look at, anyway. It may have changed since I was in there, mind.



So, anyone coming on this quest 'cept me and silvermoon? We'll be leaving soon for some muffin remnance. Anybody?
SPEAKERfortheLOST
Yearg!

I'll go if Colin doesn't go. You see Magical Creatures aren't allowed in the Matazone Freespace... they have a tendency to go berserk and kill all they enter with...

thats all...
JimiJimi
Colin ain't magical, he's jus' some damn-ass robot.
Quoth(The Raven)
*Colin, standing behind JimiJimi, smacks JimiJimi in the back of the head.*

Colin: Sorry sir, a minor glitch in my system...

*Colin winks at Arachnidoc...*

JimiJimi (Suspiciously): Something in your eye, Colin?

Colin: Just another random glitch, sir...
Quoth(The Raven)
*Arthur looks dubiously at talking lime*

Arthur: Okay, so,you're a talking Lime...

Lime: Yep.

Arthur: Hi. I'm Arthur. What's Your name?

Lime: Lyman.

Arthur (Rolling eyes): that figures...

Christ. Is this place a bar anymore?

It seems to have twisted into something that I cannot comprehend!

My mind!

Hey, the Bar has always been a trifle Kafka-esque... I mean, we have Mad scientists, Wyverns, Bears, Komodo dragons... Whaddaya expect, Walt Whitman?

And don't forget the people with voices in their heads.

I think that the bar stopped making sense around page... Um.... Around what page did I start posting?
JimiJimi
So, anyone actually coming on this quest? There's only two and a small floating robot at the moment who seems to be being bribed by someone else.

Just watch out for flying cows, and Taunting Frenchmen...

I will. I think.
Ashbless
*wanders in*

Colin's upgrade is...*doubletake* apparently disabled. laugh.gif Do you still want this skills chip, then?

*hands it over to Colin*

Aunty Ash! I killed a balloon.

I see that. Apparently you also got it's buddies.

*laughter* You're not draconian.

Am I still wearing that?

Im sure that we could find them a shrubbery along this journey into the wilderness... can i come to??
silvermoon
Anybody else coming? You know you want to!
JimiJimi
Can I buy Colin off the bar for a substantial sum of MataMoney?
Ashbless
Noooo. Who would clean? tongue.gif

Borrow him though. It's past time he was due a vacation.

*watches dust bunnies cheering and begin their slow advance* blink.gif

I'm pretty sure I know where the cleaning supplies are kept.
*dust bunnies look a little more unsure*
JimiJimi
I'm sure Colin would still clean if I bought him.

Anyway, last chance, anyone else coming on the quest?

Seeing on how I work here, I figure I ought to stay and help Ashbless fight off the dustbunnies...
SPEAKERfortheLOST
*readies wand of far-slaying*

where are they?

Ashbless: all over!

*zaps wand in random directions hitting nothing but walls and the random dust mite*

wow... i missed...

*walls begin to crumble in the Matabar*

BYE!

*runs out with loud rumbling in the background*
Ashbless
*speed dials the repair elves*

Yep, the walls also.

Wha? Monday? Completely unacceptable.

No. It was magically caused this time. Wand of far-slaying.

Well great. See you...

*elves walk in the door, form circle, chant briefly and Bar reforms around them, elves walk back out.*

soon.

*Ashbless hangs up phone.*

huh.gif I wonder how much that's going to cost.

hey, I spelled it phonetically, alright? After no one got the "Dark and Very expensive forest" line, I wanted to be absolutely clear... I hate explaining jokes...
Quoth(The Raven)
*Arthur licks his fingers, reaches up, and snuffs out flames feeding on his horns...*

Arthur: At least the Elves put the decorations back, while they were at it...

*Keegan comes flying in, followed by her siblings....*

Arthur: Ah, no. Not again!

*Bar is filled with the sound of dozens of balloons popping...*
silvermoon
*sneaks behind Arthur*

*duct tapes Arthur, Tobias, and Quoth together*

Wow, that looks like fun. Anybody want to duct tape me? I'll give you a imiginary brownie...

Well, as Tobias isn't here, and I'm never all there tongue.gif , You have a very p.o.'d dragon on your hands...

Arthur: @#$%! First I have a kitten attack my Balloons, then I get blown up, the kitten comes back with MORE kittens, to finish off my decor, Lymon isn't talking anymore (Hey, buddy, you okay?), and now some nut comes up and wraps me in Duct tape!

*Arthur Flares up with a white hot flame, vaporising duct tape*

Arthur: Anyone else want a piece of me?

*Flames continue to dance around him*

All the better to go on a quest! tongue.gif Gives it a bit of a surreal atmosphere. Plus, hopefully anything dangerous would know to stay away.
JimiJimi
*Jimi, in complete adventurer's garb stands by door*

*Adventurer's garb consists of knives, backpack full of sandwiches and more knives, binoculars, knives and Colin*

Right, I'm off to find the dried muffin remnance. The quicker I get back, the quicker we can return to whatever resolution we were at before.

OK, Silvermoon? Sir Pizza? You guys ready?
arachnidoc17
Don't forget to pick up better equipment along the way! The higher-level monsters drop them, you know!
JimiJimi
Yes. I always wondered why mystical zombie dragons carry such high amounts of Gil.
silvermoon
*Silvermoon stands by door*

*Carries long bow and lots of arrows, and a backpack with water, chips, and rope*

I'm ready.
JimiJimi
Meh, Colin can beam Sir Pizza over to us when he's ready. I'm getting impatient...

*Begins to walk out of Matabar*

Oh bugger, I forgot, we're floating aren't we. Anyone got any parachutes? Preferably with no holes in and rip cords still attached?
silvermoon
Stupid question, but can Colin fly/hover/whatever?
JimiJimi
Err... yes, but I'm not too sure how much weight he can carry. Ah well, it's worth a shot.

*Grabs onto Colin's left arm*
silvermoon
*Grabs Colin's right arm*

Let's hope he's stronger than he looks...
