Arc of H.B. Chapter of Spooky Scary Skeletons Complete 4/12

Forum 14: Arc of Human Behavior Finale: Chapter of Spooky Scary Skeletons.
Previous Chapter: http://brikwars.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=33&t=14194
Image
The party arrives at Forum 14 proper.

Vami: "Where's the Hill?"

Ross Varn: "The Hill? Who told you the Hill was here?"

Image
Natalya: "Guys, we need to focus. We're here to get supplies and then we're going to go on the offensive."

Image
MGB: "Natalya, thank you for bringing us here but as you know I am the new leader of all the Quantum Surfers. You could at least run the plan by me first."

In Ib's hideout:
Image
Ib: "Ok, are we all ready to go?"

Bjork_Bot: "Don't tell me you're planning on bringing the boy?"

Image
Ib: "Of course I am! He's a necesarry part of my plan."

Bjork_Bot: "Sir, he's a kid! He has no place on the battlefield!"

Ib: "I won't let him come to harm. We're proxymancers, we hide behind our armies. He'll be fine."

Image
Wilhelm: "What's the plan, boss?"

Ib: "We finally have the coordinates to Forum 14. We go in, raid the place and get out. Transport in 3...2...1..."

Image
Ib: "Oh, hi..."

Image
MGB: "All troops, converge on Ib."

Image
Silverdream: "Look! He's summoning his skeletons from the water!"

Ib: "Huh? I am?"

Image
Bjork_Bot: "I am detecting multiple signatures. Recommending retreat and re-grouping."

Image
Silverdream: "Fuck you Ib!"

Ib: "Wtf dude?!"

Image
Quantum Surfer: "But why are the skeletons looking like they're going to attack Ib? It doesn't make sense."

Image
Frderick: "Sirs, behind!"

Vami: "Nimja, come on. We've got this!"

Nimja: "..."

Image
Colette:"Vami, Nimja, Redrover, Ross. Aid Frederick and the Policebots. Quantum and Natalya create a defensive perimeter and watch what happens with Ib."

Image
MGB: "Ahem. Colette. I realize you're caught up in the moment but I'm the leader now."

Colette: "Of course, you're right. My apologies."

MGB: "Well since that's settled. Everyone just do what Colette said."

Image
Frederick: "We can't hold them! There's too many of them!"

Image
Ross Varn: "Eat laser lead, assholes!"

Image

Image
Natalya: "This isn't working."

Image
Natalya: "There's an access panel over there to my base. Colette you should go in and prepare incase we need to fall back. Quantum, there's a computer built into the wall. You can use it to control the turrets."

Image
Scratch: "I'll go with Colette and keep an eye on him."

Image

Image
Colette: "Vami, stand guard."

Image
Colette: "And what could be down here?"

Image
Scratch: "This is a long hallway..."

Image
Scratch: "What's that?"

Image
Colette: "According to the computer it's some kind of portal?"

Image
Scratch: "Really? Where does it lead?"

Image
Scratch: (To himself) "I'll take this before Colette gets his hands on it."

Image
Colette: "Very strange. I can't seem to get a clear description of where the portal goes. The system is disorganized and decidedly un-scientific."

Image
Ib: "Silva! I didn't summon the skeletons!"

Silverdream: "Liar! If you summoned them that means I was right about you all along! You had to have!"

Image
Duerer: "We need to fall back, we're totally surrounded!"

Image
Natalya: "Quantum! The turret!"

Image

Image

Image
*BOOM*

Image
Frederick: "It's no good, we're done for if we stay here."

Image
The Skull in the Top Hat: "Wake up, fuckbois! You're ruler is here. It is my great honor to present to you..."

Image
TSitTH: "The one and only Mr. Skeletal!"

Image
Mr Skeletal: "All right, fuckbois! Time to get boned!"

Image
Silverdream: "Ib, I still hate you but for now we need to get out of here. I won't forget about my grundge."

Image
Silverdream jumps into the fray, creating an opening for the others.

Image
Ib: "Ben it's time to summon something awesome!"

Ben: "Yeah! How about a giant dragon?"

Image
Dark Magicks begin to swirl about the two proxymancers as they begin to summon a totally badass dragon.

Image
... But nothing happens!

Ib: "Shit, I can't focus when we're in trouble like this. Let's regroup inside that fortress."

Image
Silverdream: "Ha! Take that skellies!"

Image
Frederick: "Fall back! Fall back!"

Image

Image
Bjork_Bot: "The line has been broken. Recommending immediate escape."

Image
Quantum Surfer: "Close the door behind me, I'm the last one!"

Image

Image
MGB: "Is everyone ok?"

Image
Mr. Skeletal: "Look at these fuckbois squeal.I'll so enjoy rending their flesh.

TSitTH: "And I know just the way to get in there to do it..."

Image
The skeleton army advances on the bunker.

Image
The turrets were destroyed and nothing can stop the army from spreading the word about the importance of calcium.

Image
Agent: Sir, everything is going according to plan. Our man on the inside confirms all the 'surfers are accounted for.

Image
Mr. Skeltal: All units, advance!

Image
Inside the bunker...

Colette: Natalya, what is this room?

Natalya: Oh, this? It's a time machine. It can take you to any point in time, either future or past, including alternate time paths created by each G.R.

Image
Natalya: It's a powerful device and one of the main reasons we sealed off Forum 14 for so long. Imagine if it fell into the wrong hands.

Image
Colette: Yes, I can see how it would cause trouble for the Brikverse. The anoraking would never cease.

Natalya: Well, there isa theory it's actually just a spatial tansporter that sends you to an alternate universe and you'd only actually affect that one iteration of that particular G.R. but it's not exactly something we can test.

Image
Outside the transporter room, the 'surfers and their allies await the coming storm of bones.

Image
Ib: I'm sorry you're involved in this, Ben. I never thought things would get so out of hand.

Ben: That's ok, sir. I wish there were a way I could help.

Ib: Maybe there is. Focus your summoning energy and combine it with mine.

Image
Ib and Ben put all their effort into summoning a truly terrifying beast.

*pop*

Ib: ...

Ben: Sorry, sir. I'm not strong enough.

Image
Suddenly the door slides open.

Image
Mook: Thank Mr. Skeltal!

Image
The first skeleton bursts in and relieves the mook of the burden of being a fuckboi.

Image
Ib: Shit! Blokbot, advance!

Image
Ross Varn: This way, everyone. There's a secret exit.

Image
Bjork: I'll cover your exit, master. Get out of here.

Image
MGB: OPs, defend the bunker at all costs!

Image
MGB: We can't let the transporter fall into enemy hands.

Image
Scratch: No, can you imagine the destruction they could cause...

Image
Ross Varn: We should be safe over here.

Image
Skeleton: Hey! There's some fuckbois over there!

Image
Red Rover: We're being overwhelmed! Is there anyone who can help us?

Image

Image
A group of soldiers appears.

Image
Kommander Ken: Sorry I'm late. I had to pick up GoldeenNightmare on the way.

Silverdream: Um.... why?

Image
Meanwhile the four OPs are fighting for their lives against the endless skeleton hordes.

Image
Colette: Tighten ranks! Form up and push the invaders back! What's wrong with you idiots?!

Image
MGB: Umm, I'm the Admin now, remember Colette? Go take the back way out. I'll hold down the fort here.

Colette: Very well. Activate protocol 27.

Image
MGB: Vami, use yourself as a human shield and defend me.

Vami: ...acknowledged, master.

MGB: BFenix, Nimja prepare a suicide attack on my mark.

BF&Nimja: ...Yes, master.

Image
Duerer: WTF?!

Image
Duerer: What are you trying to pull, MGB?!

Image
MGB: New orders. Restrain the traitor.

BFenix and Nimja walk towards Duerer as if in a trance.

Image
Colette: That worked better than I expected...

Image
Scratch: So that's how you did it, Colette. Very clever...

Image
In the heat of battle Silverdream and Ib come across each other.

Silverdream: Ib, we need to bury our feud for now and work towards the common good. There's an artifact of great power off in the mountain pass over yon. It requires a powerful magic user to activate. Will yo help me?

Ib: Silverdream... Maybe it was all a misunderstanding afterall. I'm sad it took such a horrible event to finally bring us together as friends.

Silverdream: Friends... yes. From today we are friends. Quickly, Ib!

Image

Image
The battle rages on...

Image
Mr. Skeltal: Maybe it's time I stepped in...

Image

Image
Vami: Master, I can't hold them much longer!

Image
Duerer: MGB stop this! Can't you see we have bigger problems right now?

Image
Mr. Skeltal begins his slaughter.

Image
Dragon Commander: Hold ranks men! For Medivo!

Image
Mook: He's unstoppable! Ma'am I can't-- gah!

Image
Mr. Skeltal: Who's next?

Image
Green Swordsman: That's enough, monster. Face me! The strongest sword in Medivo.

Image
In the blink of an eye Mr. Skeltal completely annihilates the swordsman's allies.

Image
Green Swordsman: You fiend!

Image
Mr. Skeltal: I'm envious of you, fuckboi. You have the pleasure of joining the ranks of the skeleton army for the first time. I barely remember my existance as a fuckboi and the centuries of being a superior skeleton have begun to bore me. What a treat to enjoy existence once again!

Image

Image
Kommander Ken: We might be fucked...

Image
Mr. Skeltal: Is there none who will face me?

Image
Mr. Skeltal: Come, mortals! I desire to rend the flesh of the strongest fuckbois you can muster!

Image
In another part of the battlefield,a being of great importance has arrived.

TSitTH: Greetings, my master. Finally the result of all of our preparations have come to fruition.

Image
Vami finally cleared out the skeletons attack the bunker. Now MGB turned his full attention towards the traitor Duerer. The mook from before is also still alive for some reason, despite selling out his living friends to become a skeleton.

Image
*rumble*

All: What's that sound?

Image
Mook: It can't be! Yes! Tremble mortals for the true master has arrived. The petty war between skeletons and fuckbois is but a harbinger of the true terror to come! Bow before your new god! Bow before the almighty and powerful being who, his hour comes at last, now slouches towards Forum 14!

Image
The wall collapses, crushing the mook to jelly. Perhaps in another life he will be revived into a weird skeleton jelly kind of monster deal.

MGB: This presence. He's a Quantum Surfer!

???: That I am. Call me Ishnox.

END Part 2

Mine eyes have seen the glory of the coming of the horde
They have shed their skins and put the fuckbois to the sword
Our men die as notes to Colettes grim orchestra
And the skeletons keep marching on

Glory glory halleluja
Mr. Skeletal is our new ruler
Pry away the flesh that sheathes our calcified bones
We ain't fuck bois no more!!

Part Final
Image
The skeleton horde advances on the remnants of the Quantum Surfer alliance.

Image
Wilhelm: Well Frederick, I guess this is it.
Frederick: I always imagined we'd die together on the field of battle. But after you betrayed the MA I thought that dream was over.
Wilhelm: Good bye, old friend.

Image
Bjork_bot: My sensors are detecting an unusual energy building up in the bunker. Perhaps if we can hold out for awhile longer we will be rescued.

Image
Ben: I feel a strange energy too coming from this staff.

Image
Quantum Surfer Quantum Surfer: Use it, boy! Unleash the energy!

Image
Ben: Uh... ok.

Image
Ben strikes a pose and unleashes the power that was deep inside him the whole time.

Image
Ben: Wow!
A ghost army materializes around Ben.

Image
Ben: Ghosts, attack!
Wilhelm: We may stand a ghost of a chance now!

Image
QSQS: That was amazing, kid! How'd you summon such high level beings?
Ben: I don't know? I just did what you said and let all the energy flow out of the staff.
QSQS: That wasn't the staff, it was you.

Image
GoldeenNightmare: Where is Silverdream by the way guys? I should go find him.

Image
Insert_blank: I'm glad you've put all this silliness past us and are willing to work with me again, Silva.
Silverdream: Well, Ib, we need to band together in times like these.

Image
Ib: I'm not detecting any magical energies. Are you sure this is the right place?

Image

Image
Ib: What are you doing?
Silverdream: You ruined everything! And now I'll have my revenge!

Image
Ib: Silva, he's gone, man. And it wasn't because of what you or I did. He had to be free.
Silverdream: No! You took her from me! Everything was perfect until you showed up!

Image
Ib: What do you want me to do? How can I fix this?
Silverdream: You can die.

Image
Ib: I hate to do this but I guess I'll have to fight you directly. Some proxymancer I am. En guard!

Image
Silverdream: My swords are too powerful! You can't beat me with that dinky little foil!

Image
Ib: Trust an idiot like you to not understand that one precise move is more powerful than a thousand forceful blows.

Image
Silverdream falters in his attack as Ib expertly lunges into his opponent, positioning his blade inbetween the plates or armor.

Image
Ib: Had enough yet?

Image
Silverdream: If my twin sword technique can't defeat you I'll just use my giant sword technique! I'll bash you into submission yet!

Image
Silverdream drops his giant sword onto Ib's foil, effectively sealing his attacks and movement.

Image
Ib tries his best to parry but the blunt force of Silverdream's blade is too much even for a master fencer.

Image
Silverdream: Now I'll take your weapon, both of them.

Image
A quick roll saves Ib's family jewel from the chopping block. However, his leg is not so lucky. Ib screams in pain before passing out.

Image
Silverdream: We'll leave it there for now. I'll delight in finishing you off later.

Image
Meanwhile Ben has summoned a ghost dragon.

Image
Ben: It's working! It's working!

Image
Natalya: We may have a chance! Press the attack!

Image
In the bunker...
Duerer: What the fuck are you supposed to be?

Image
MGB: Who cares?! Kill him!

Image
Ishnox lifts Nimja into the air.
Ishnox: You want to know what I am? I am called a Husk. Now let me show you my power.

Image
Nimja: ...

Image
Nimja's body disappears into Ishnox.

Image
Ishnox's arm begins to grow and change color. The strange beast laughs maniacally.

Image
Colette: He can absorb others and take on their powers! MGB execute order 66!

Image
MGB drops his gun and stands completely still.

Image
His armor grows around him encasing him in its metal embrace.

Image
MGB runs towards the hulking figure of Ishnox.

Image
Duerer stares at the scene around him and can only mutter: What evils have we created?

Image
MGB slams into Ishnox, kncoking the beast off balance.

Image
A massive explosion rocks the bunker.

Image

Image
MGB's hat flutters down around Duerer's feet.

Image
Ishnox: Puny minifigs. Did you think that would be enough to stop me?!

Image
Ishnox: I can absorb any amount of energy. All you've done is make me stronger!

Image
BFenix, Duerer and Vami rush towards Ishnox in an all or nothing attack.

Image
With a single swipe of his flaming hand, Ishnox bats the pesky flies away.

Image
Colette: I think it's time for me to leave.

Image
In one quick movement Scratch disarms Colette.

Image
Scratch: Surely you're not thinking of leaving your friends behind?

Image
Scratch: For a genius you're really dumb sometimes, Colette.

Image
Scratch: You all spent so much time fighting each other you never considered that had you all worked together none of this would have ever happened.

Image
Scratch: Your arrogance has led us to this moment. The Skeleton War was merely a front. All this time, everything that has happened was orchestrated to bring us to this exact moment in time.
Colette: You mean...

Image
Scratch: You found a way to control mind's with your tech. After you used it successfully on Nimja you enslaved MGB to your will and positioned him into a position of power within the Brikverse. You knew no one trusted you but that MGB was generally liked. Instead of changing yourself you decided to use deception to control others. Instead of making friends you actively pushed people away in your ad pursuit for power. That ends here today.

Image
Scratch: I'm going to enjoy watching you be absorbed. I was so lucky I found Ishnox before any of you did. I explained the state of the Brikverse to him and he readily agreed to help me defeat you.
Colette: Then all of this was your doing? To kill me you caused all of this?!
Scratch: Kill you? Why would I ever want to do that? No, no, no. I have a much better punishment in mind for you. Oh, I think I just made a pun.

Image
Ishnox absorbs Colette...

Image
And spits out his comatose body.
Scratch: Drool at my feet, you pathetic worm. I'll tell everyone you fought valiantly and only through your ultimate sacrifice was I able to push back Ishnox. There are no witnesses and you are only an empty, brainless shell. I win, Colette.

Image
Scratch: Proceed with the next phase in the plan, Ishnox.
Ishnox: Yes, sir.

Image

Image
Mr. Skeltal: Friends, our master has appeared!

Image
Mr Skeltal: All I have done I have done for you, oh lord. Please accept me into your embrace so that I may merge into your perfect form and live forever in your heart!

Image
Ishnox: Forward, men!

Image
Ben: Dragon attack!

Image
Ishnox cleaves the dragons head in one swipe.

Image
Ben falls from his mount as it is absorbed into Ishnox.

Image
Ishnox: Cower, puny fuckbois. For I am Ishnox, destroyer of worlds. All that you have seen, all the suffering you have faced has been by my will alone.

Image
Ishnox: Now, face the wrath of my perfect form!

Image
Kommander Ken: Shit!

Image
Ross_Varn and Redrover are swept up.

Image

Image
Natalya: No! I'm the Queen Bitch, you asshole!

Image

Image
Kommander Ken: Run! Run! Run!

Image
Quantum Surfer: Come on! We can use this device to escape.

Image
Ishnox: I can't let you do that.

Image
Quantum: There's enough energy to send the boy far, far away. But I'm not clear exactly how the device works. But I can sense he's the only one who can save us now.

Image

Image
Kommander Ken: Run, kid! I'll cover you! Hey, you kind of seem familiar somehow...

Image
Ben: Mister, what's going on?
Quantum: No time to explain. Our fate lies in your hands, son. I'm sorry that it had to be this way. Maybe it's your fate.

Image
The machine teleports the boy away to places and times unknown.

Image
Quantum: Brikthulhu save us all.

END





Image
Date:??? Time:??? Place:???

Image
Ben: Ugh... where am I?

Image
???: We've been waiting for you to arrive, sir.

Image
Jen: My name is Jen Neptune and we were sent here to retrieve you.
