Arc of H.B Chapter of A New Face in Hell COMPLETE 10/31

The Magic SOB forum is for posts of story sequences that are frequently vignette-based. Put those here while actual battle reports can go in Reports From the Field.
You must talk like James T. Kirk in this forum at all times. Leonard Nimoy is fine too.

Forum 14: Arc of Human Behavior Arc Chapter of A New Face in Hell Episode the first

Image
A meeting of the Quantum Surfers has been called. Colette, the de facto leader is first to arrive with her supporters Silverdream and Scratch.

Image
Surprisingly the Triumvirate (also known as the Old Guard) are next to arrive. Natalya, TheShadowScythe and Warhead, though mostly benevolent through inaction were recently implicated in the Ibcident and thus have decided to weigh in on matters of the Brikverse.

Image
ZahruII and his protegee KommanderKen also trek out from Medivo to join in on the meeting. Zahru considers himself neutral and in fact set apart from the rest of the 'verse because of Medivo's unique properties. He only came because of Duerer's request to have as many Surfers as possible at this particular meeting.

Image
Quantum, Duerer, BFenix and MGB also show up. The four consider themselves neutral as well but while Zahru believes in a hand off approach to politics, these four are actively looking for a peaceful solution to the Ibcident.

Image
Last to arrive is Nimja. Why is he here again?

Image
"Well then, I will call this meeting to order," Colette begins.

Image
Colette: "As you are all well aware Quantum Surfer Ib has been running amok and messing in the affairs of the lower planes. His actions cannot go unpunished!"

Image
Silverdream: "Ib's a nice guy but he's gone too far this time. He's acting like a spoiled child. We just need to talk with him and make him see reason."

Image
Colette: "I also wish to announce my retirement from active duty. I am passing the status of leader to MGB. Please step forward."

Image
MGB: "Guys, it's really an honor. I will do my best as leader of the Brikverse, specifically the Four-Rums. I think we can all work out this misunderstanding and get back to causing chaos on the lower planes."

Image
Zahru: "Is this it? Are you guys just going to stand around talking shit on each other and then talking up your sanctions and rules? What kind of leadership is this? On Medivo if we want something done we do it. Actions speak louder than words. Come on, Ken. We're leaving."

Image
Zahru grumbles to himself and Ken follows behind.
Ken: "Nice seeing you guys!"

Image
Warhead and Scythe turn to leave as well.
Warhead: "Zahru is right. This meeting is dull. There isn't even any beer or hookers!"
TSS: "Beer! Beer! Beer! Beer!"

Image
Duerer looks around at the gathered Surfers.
Duerer: "What a state we're all in. We act like friends on the outside but in fact we're all looking out for ourselves. What happened to the exciting tales of derring-do and the fun? This isn't even fun anymore.

Image
As Nimja turns to leave he feels something hard and cold pressed against the small of his back.
NImja: "Why Colette, is that a gun I feel or are you just happy to see me?"
Colette: "Can it, Nimja. You're already on pretty thin fucking ice. Come with me and keep quiet."

Image
Colette: "I know you're spying on us for Ib. I won't allow you to return to him. He's been such a thorn in my side. How am I supposed to manage the other Surfers if he's running around free?
Nimja: "But Colette, you quit being the leader. MGB is the boss now."
Colette: "Since you won't be going back alive I don't mind telling you the truth. MGB is a simple pawn. As leader all eyes are on me. If MGB is handling all the day to day things I can afford to get my hands dirty. Like I always say, you can't trust others to take care of important tasks. And right now subjugating Ib is top on my list.
Nimja: "Quantum Surfers can't be killed so how do you propose you'll stop me from reaching Ib and telling the rest of the Surfers about this?"

Image
Colette: "You're a fan of that GrimDarkger show, aren't you? It's much too immature for an intellectual like myself but there was one good idea in last week's episode. I think I'll just keep you locked in this Quantum Cage for the rest of eternity."
Nimja: "Wait, so you hate the show but watch it every week?"
Colette: "I don't have to explain myself to the likes of you. Besides, you're the idiot in the cage and I'm the genius with the key. Goodbye, Nimja. I can't say it was a pleasure knowing you."

Image
Some time later...
Colette: "Well MGB that's everything you need to know to take over. I just have one last thing for you."

Image
Colette: This is the official uniform. Wear it with pride and respect and make the Brikverse the great place we both know it can be."
MGB: "Thank you, Colette. I'll do you proud, I promise."

Image
MGB: "Ah, Duerer, BFenix. Come in.
Duerer: "You called for us, sir?"
MGB: "Yes, I have decided that under my administration I will need trusted Surfers to act as a kind of special forces against our enemies. You two will be my first Special Operators. You will answer directly to me and work to safeguard the Brikverse."
Duerer and BF: "Sir! Thank you, Sir!"

Image
MGB: "What do you think of your new outfits? Stylish, right? Let's go gentlemen, we have a universe to save."

Image
The three men leave and Scratch appears from behind the corner.
Scratch: "The pieces are in place and the game has begun. It might be time for me to make my move..."

Forum 14: Arc of Human Behavior Arc Chapter of A New Face in Hell Episode the second
Duerer's Story: Part 1

Image
MGB: "Vami, Bfenix, Duerer. I want to introduce our newest Special Operative.

Image
MGB: "You may remember him as an ally of Ib but I can assure you Nimja is on our side now."

Nimja: "..."

Image
MGB: "Now on to the business at hand. We've been getting strange reports throughout the Brikverse about skeletons running amok. Ib has been seen on multiple occasions summoning skeletons through his Nekromancy. Duerer I want you to go investigate."

Image
Duerer: "As you command, Administrator."

Image
Frederick: "Special Operative Duerer, I've been asked to accompany you with our new Bavarian Policebots."

Duerer: "Very well, let's go."

Image
At Ib's hideout...

Duerer: "Hmm, doesn't look like anyone is home. Honestly I didn't want to get involved in all of this but MGB is our leader now. Better to go with the flow, I guess."

Image
Duerer: "Yup. Empty. I figured as much."


Image
???: "Hello there, boys. Looking for someone?"

Image
Secret Agent: "The skeletons have made contact with Duerer, sir. All is going according to plan."
Voice on the Other End: "Very good. Maintain survelliance."


Ib's Story: Part 1

Image
ZahruII: "Ib. What are you doing here?"
Ib: "Zahru, I'm here to ask you for a favor."

Image
ZahruII: "A favor?! Are you crazy? I told you a hundred times I'm not interested in your revolution. Go sell it to someone who cares."

Image
Ib: "This isn't about my fued with Colette. I'm just asking you to design a ship. A airship to be precise. You're one of the best builders around, I know if anyone can make an airship it'd be you."

ZahruII: "And what makes you think I'd agree?"

Ib: "Because you and I both know you can't resist a chance to put your building skills to the test. So, what do you say?"

Image
ZahruII: "Damn you, Ib. You've got a deal. But it'll take years to build."

Ib: "That's fine. If there's one thing I have it's time. Oh, by the way. Bjork_Bot is really in need of an upgrade. Can you handle it for me? Thanks, man."

Image
ZahruII: "Could you at least try to blend in? This is my world and I try to keep the folk here away from all your dumbass space-drama."

Ib: "Will do. Any idea of a place where I could wet my whistle?"

Image
KommanderKen: "There's a great little Inn not too far from here. I was there, oh, 10 years ago. Great service if you know what I mean. ;-)"

Image
Ib: "Thanks, I'll check it out. Behave for Zahru, BB."
Bjork_Bot: "Yes, sir."

Image
A few hours later...
A small inn at a crossroads. A heroic party of adventures is kicking back a few drinks after a hard-days monster slaying and questing. The son of the matron sweeps the floor nearby listening for tales of adventure.

Image
Matron: "Ben, come over here and prepare the next round of drinks for our guests."

Image
The adventurers are talking loudly with each other about the days exploits. Apparently the ninja bailed the archer out of a serious jam involving some green slimes.

Image
A black cloaked stranger sits in the corner, sipping his wine.

Image
Outside a group of soldiers approaches the entrance.

Image
Dragon Knight Commander: "Wench, some refreshments for my men and I! We have just cleared the pass of the goblin infestation and have worked up a mighty hunger!"

Image
The Dragon Knights enjoy a hearty feast.

Image
The young boy, Ben, looks on with open disdain at the Dragon Knights. They are known for their feroity both in and out of battle and as a result are not popular with the common folk.

Image
The commander takes a mighty pull of her ale and heartily chomps away at her drumstick.

Image
Ben: "Mom, why do we have to put up with these Dragon Knights? They're brutes."

Matron: "That they are, son, but they keep the area safe from monsters. We had better just do as they say. Now get on a serve the man over there another round."

Image
Ben takes the cloaked man's cup to refill it.

Cloaked Stranger: "Say, boy. What's the story on those knights over there?"

Ben: "You must not be from around here. Everyone knows about the Dragon Knights. Are you an adventurer?"

Cloaked Stranger: "Yeah, something like that."

Image
The man refuses to talk more so Ben goes to fill his cup.

Image
Outside, the armies of the dead once more roam the earth.

Image
Ben: "Here's your drink, sir."

Cloaked Stranger: "Do you sense it, son?"

Ben: "Sir?"

Cloaked Stranger: "Beware, there is evil in the air tonight. Something is rotten on Medivo."


Image
Agent: "Team B reporting in. All go here, over."

Natalya's Story: Part 1

Image
GoldeenNightmare: "I walk this lonely street..."

Image
GoldeenNightmare: "On the boulevard of broken dreams..."

Image
GoldeenNightmare: "Where the... umm.. something sleeps... and I'm the only one and..."

Image
GoldeenNightmare: "I WALK AL--"

Wilhelm: "Yo."

GoldeenNightmare: "AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH!"

Image
GoldeenNightmare: "It's been so long since I saw anyone here. Why have you come to the Halls of the Dead Trolls?"

Wilhelm: "I was looking for that sword you're holding actually."

GoldeenNightmare: "Oh, this old thing? My other half gave it to me and told me to hold it until one of his Bavarians came to get it."

Wilhelm: "And I am that self-same Bavarian."

GoldeenNightmare: "Really? But you don't have a German accent."

Wilhelm: "I practiced my English so people wouldn't treat me as a cheap stereotype. I want to be judged as a person, not as a representative of the great Bavarian people."

GoldeenNightmare: "Makes sense to me, here."

Image
Silverdream: "Not so fast! Goldeen, this man is a liar and he is no Bavarian of mine."

GoldeenNightmare: "Senpai! You came back. I missed you so much!"

Image
Wilhelm: Stand back, sir. You have no idea what powers I now weild."

Image
Natalya: And why should we be scared of you? We're QuantumSurfers. We're basically like unto gods, dude."

Wilhelm: "And I am a warlock. Do you know what that means?"

Image
Wilhelm: "Eldritch blast!"

Natalya: "Ha! You missed!"

Wilhelm: "Yes. With my first blast."

Image
Wilhelm: "But everyone knows that warlocks can cast two eldritch blasts!"

Scratch: "Fuck..."

Image
GoldeenNightmare: "Why did you hurt her? And for that matter I thought normal minifigs couldn't hurt QuantumSurfers."

Wilhelm: "I think you'll find their boasts of invincibillity are highly exaggertaed.

Image
Silverdream: "How did you gain this much power? What sorcery is this?"

Wilhelm: "I told you, it isn't sorcery. I am a warlock. Master Ib made a pact with me and I can channel his magic power into myself and unleash it."

Image
Natalya: "Would you assholes mind getting me down instead of hearing his life story?"

Image
Agent: "This is Team C. The targets are engaging each other."
VotOE: "Excellent. All is going according to plan."

Natalya's Story: Part 2

Image
Wilhelm: "Anyway, I'll be taking this."

Image
Silverdream: "Stop!"

Image
Silverdream: "He's gone..."

GoldeenNightmare: "Senpai. I'm sorry I missed up."

Image
Silverdream: "You're sorry? I've got a friend bleeding out, a dangerous new magic has been discovered, and my failure of a sphincter just gave away a priceless artifact to the enemy!"

GoldeenNightmare: "So I guess that means we won't be fusing back together?"

Silverdream: "I won't even dignify that with a response. Scatch get Natalya and let's go."


Ib's Story: Part 2

Image
Dragon Knight: Time to bleed the lizard... Shouldn't have drank so mu-- what the fuck?!"

Image
Dragon Knight: "Uh... boss?"

Image
Dragon Knight Commander: "Gear. Now!"

Image
Dragon Knight Commander: "Form a shield wall. Barricade the door! Protect the citizens!"

Green Swordsman: "How can my party assist?"

Image
Dragon Knight Commander: "Ranged fighters in the back. Shield wall prepare to defend the first wave. Berserkers in the back ready to jump in."

Image
Dragon Knight Commander: "Steady men. They'll be banging on the door any minute now."

Image
Voice from inside: "Do you guys hear that?"

Image
*boom!*

Image
Dragon Knight Commander: "Hold the line!"

Image
Bone axes chew into the Dragon Knight's shields.

Image
A shuriken finds it's mark in a skeleton warrior. The skeleton doesn't seem to notice.

Image
Ninja: "We may be in trouble..."

Image
The Dragon Knight's formation has been broken.

Image
The ninja jumps into the fray, katana drawn.

Image
The skeleton's axes and bonesaw swords make quick work of her.

Image
The wizard is the next to fall against the skeletal onsalught.

Image
Only a few survivors remain.

Image
Ben: "Sir can't you do anything? You're an adventurer, right?"

Cloaked Stranger: "Sorry, son. There's nothing I can do against a force like this."

Image
Dragon Knight Commander: "This will be our last stand."

Green Swordsman: "If only there were something we could do..."

Image
Ben: "I just gotta believe!"

The Cloaked Stranger sense power surge from the small boy as the axe swishes down upon him.

Image
The axes head breaks against the newly summoned blokbot.

Image
Green Swordsman: "Whatever you're doing boy keep it up!"

Image
The blokbot rampages and the Green Swordsman scores his first hit, severing the skeletons arm.

Green Swordsman: "It's not over yet! We can win this!"

Image
The Dragon Knight Commander decapitates a skeleton and moves onto the next one.

Image
Only to be cut off by the blokbot.

Image

Image
The skeletons are reduced to a pile of bones.

Image
The blokbot vanishes as quickly as it was summoned.

Green Swordsman: "It's over..."

Image
Dragon Knight Commander: "So, you're a nekromancer, huh? Give me on good reason why I shouldn't slit your throat right here and now!"

Image
Cloaked Stranger: Wait!"

Image
Dragon Knight Commander: "What could a cowardly fool like you have to say that could stop me?"

Cloaked Stranger: "What if I told you I was a trans-dimensional sorcerer like unto a god who travelled through time and space to protect the entire mulitverse from evil?"

Image
Dragon Knight Commander: "I'd say you were too far gone into your cups. We need to kill any black magic users before they mature. It is the law!"

Matron: "Sir, please save my son!"

Image
Cloaked Stranger: "What if I take the boy far from here and you never see hide nor hair of him again?"

Dragon Knight Commander: "The law says if they are found they must be killed. That is all."

Image
With a wave of his hand the Dragon Knight Commander flies backwards and slams into the counter.

Ben: "Cool! Can I learn to do that?"

Image
Cloaked Stranger: "That and much, much more. Come, boy, before she wakes."

Matron: "Mind your manners, Ben. And don't forget to come by and say hello once in awhile. Please take care of him, stranger."

Image
Ben: "So... Where are we going, mister?"

Image
Ib: "You can call me Ib. And unless I'm mistaken..."

Image
Bjork_Bot: "My upgrade is complete, sir. Are you ready to go home?"

Ib: "Wow, BB. You look amazing! Zahru really came through this time."

Bjork_Bot: "You're making me uncomfortable. You're basically my co-creator. I would like to keep a strictly plutonic relationship."

Image
Ib: "Right. This is Ben, he's coming with us."

Bjork_Bot: "Understood. Stand-by for teleportation."


Duerer's Story: Part 2

Image
Duerer: "All right men. Fire at will!"

Image
Frederick: "Our blasters have no effect!"

Image
Duerer: "Switch to melee mode!"

Image

Image
Duerer: "Charge!"

Image

Image
Duerer: "I need some intel on who these guys are."

Image

Image
Duerer: "The new Policebots are pretty evenly matched with the skeletons."

Image
Duerer charges the leader and the two are locked in combat.

Duerer: "Are you this Mr. Skeletal I've been hearing rumors about? What do you want? Why are you attacking us? Did Ib send you?"

Image
The Skull in the Top Hat: "Me? Mr. Skeletal? You flatter me. My name is The Skull in the Top Hat. I'm something of a general in the Skeleton Army."

Duerer: "And who sent you? It was Ib, wasn't it?"

Image
The skeletons are on their last legs as the Policebots mow them down.

Image
TSitTH: "You can believe what you want. But it seems some uninvited guests have decided to crash our party. I'll big you farewell for now."

Image
TSitTH: "War is coming, Special Operator Duerer."

Image
Frederick: "He's gone!"

Image
Frederick: "We need to report this right away."


Elsewhere...

Image
Agent: "The last engagement has finished, sir. The raids in Medivo were a success and we are outfitting the army as we speak. General Top Hat also successfully baited the Special Operative and the Golden Sword is in Ib's possession as we had hoped."

Image
???: "Excellent. This will be a Halloween no one in the Brikverse will forget for a long, long time."
