*Colin takes off and flies outside the bar*

Jimi: Bloody hell, how high up are we?

Colin: 30ft.

Jimi: Ah. Not that bad.

Colin: 30,000ft.

Jimi: Oh. Oh, that makes much more sense.

...

Jimi: Colin? Your left arm is starting to come off.

Colin: No worries, I can make a new one.

Jimi: Yes, well, the thing is, I happen to be holding onto it.

Colin: Oh.

Jimi: Ah.

Colin: Yes, that is a bit of a pickle, isn't it.

Jimi: Just hurry up and land, will you? I can barely breathe and soon I'll be plummeting to my death. I know that happens a lot around Matabar, but I don't fancy my chances down there...

No, I've told Colin to land us somewhere in the depths of Matazone, somewhere where there will most probably be some dried muffin remnance at least an adventure away.
SPEAKERfortheLOST
You crash land in a dark forest. Colin is mangled beyond and magical or physical repair. His automated repair system is not working. You have 300 turns to fix Colin or Colin will become nothing more.

This forest has an erie aura. You sence that your enchanted armor and weapons don't seem quite right but can't figure out why.

There is a sign here.

There is one person standing here.

You see a glittering object off into the woods.

There is a path here, it leads to the north. Do you take it? How do you fix Colin? Where are you? Who are you? Why are you here? Who will you meet?

Shopping for some bread
I hope they don't get dead

They've lost their minds...

Hey Quoth!

Quoth: er... *looks from side to side* HI!

ya... um.... is it me or does this 16-bitness need to be fixed?

Quoth: *visibly calming* yes, it does. but I have no idea how...

Ah... right then, we just need to make some dried muffin remnance, and that should work...

Quoth: Right! but, um, how do we make this 'dried muffin remnance'?

well, im not quite sure but I think if we make some muffins, eat them, and have Arthur breathe fire over the remnance, mind you over not on, it should create the dried effect we are looking for... either that or kill us all...

hmmm... this might be a problem....

this just happens to be a small ammount of dried muffin remnance... where as we needed a large ammount...

hmmm... unless we happen to have a particle multiplier or some other way to copy and reproduce this muffin remnance then we might have a revert to 16-bitness....

er... Quoth, any ideas?

ya, so Jimi old buddy, old pal, old firend... would you mind operating that particle multipler?

You know, the middle of the Matabar isn't exactly the safest place to do this. It takes an extreme amount of energy (not to mention radiation) to turn objects into hyper-objects, then splitting them and reverting them to two regular objects.
JimiJimi
Oh well. For some very, very strange reason, against my own will I just walked into the bar. I would much preferred to have had another adventure to get back, but I guess you just can't have it all.

By the way, I really like chocolate, especially chocolate chips.

Well, I don't object to eating animals, except for intelligent ones... Arthur would have loved to have eaten the Flying mouse (Especially after it ruined his batter), but, a: He's pledged not to eat patrons of the Matabar, and B: He's allergic to chocolate...

well, technically, faeries are sentient, and do occasionally hang out at the bar... to indulge his sweet tooth, poor Arthur has to fly far afield to find fearies who aren't related to, or friends with, any who frequent the bar....

JimiJimi
Well, Voices, if you get salmonella then don't come crying to any of us. But I wouldn't recommend the toilets, either.

I'm confused. We got the muffin remnance, the bar returned to normal. Then TWL made it normal again, so if the bar has been made normal twice, then what colour quality are we at now?

Also there still seems to be an expanding mass of Jimis.

*Lightbulb appears above Jimi's head*

*Jimi eats lightbulb*

Hmm, what's a better idea, scooping the many Jimis out of the side of the bar whilst on the ground or flying many thousands of feet in the air?

EDIT: Or we could kill two birds with one stone, who fancies Jimi muffins?
