The Massive Multi-Fandom RPG: Season 3:
Mecha-maniacThe shots and attacks of the group did indeed manage to fell some of the islanders, their furry faces writhing in agony as they fell to the ground. Some of the braver members of the pack scrambled forward, their apelike limbs carrying them forward with suprising speed. Five of the creatures, these ones brandishing rusted weapons that had clearly been scavenged from the shipwrecks, lunged forwards onto the group, eager to bludgeon their prey.
Toa of AnarchyAs an ape creature lunged for her, Emily tried to grab it weapon, and wrestle it out of its hands.

Sandy finished loading and fired her musket.
arachnidsGripSeemed like the crisis was averted, as Alex picked up her bag and calmed down considerably then before. All she wanted now was their names, which was a reasonable enough request. Unless she needed their names to cast some kind of instant death spell, but he'd take his chances. "Heh, name's Dante. Nice to meet ya, babe." he said with a smirk not long after Samus, batting his eyes. "And let me tell ya, have we got a tale for you." To Samus' question, he only shrugged. "Unless you're just dyin' to examine those coconuts, I say we get back to the ship. Knowin' our luck, the only thing we'd probably find here is another cursed sea monster magnet." Unlike some people, he wasn't too particularly invested in treasure of any kind. They all ended up cursed or unholy in his line of work anyway, it really wasn't worth the effort. Now Devil Arms, there was something to get excited about. But if he were to find one of those on this island, he'd eat his fancy new hat. With the general consensus being 'Get out of Dodge', he turned on his heels to start their way back to the ship...when a sing song chirp interrupted him. Beatrix had soared back above him, looking down at him intently. "What it is, kid?" he asked, crossing his arms as he looked up at her. The Chatot made a few small circles around him before fluttering away and landing on a nearby rock. Ruffling her feathers, she scratched at something curiously basking on top of the rock. It was a set of cards. On a random deserted island. Fancy that. He gave the set a cards a discerning glance, before turning his head back towards Alex. "...Were those always here?" His gut instinct told him that the set of cards were probably more than what met the eye, considering how they were just perfectly untouched on the rockbed for no damn good reason at all. That also meant that they were probably magic or cursed or another one of those popular buzzwords. And from the looks of it, they weren't even playing cards. Damn.

Fear the MADNESSAlice once again grabbed her Teapot Cannon, and while the others fought, she charged it, sending a grenade-full of scalding tea into the approximate middle of the group of homonids.

Screw the Lion!"Dang it!" Oswald cursed after seeing the blunderbuss didn't scare away them like he expected. Seeing the chimp men with rusted bludgeons the rabbit put away the shotgun and pulled out his shileilagh, managing to block one of them, pushing them back, and then following up with a swipe at their legs with the club.

Spellcaster"Actually, it might be useful to grab a good load of coconuts. At least it means we'll have food for awhile, and coconut milk, too. As to those cards... well, enchanted cards aren't exactly rare, let me take a look." She walked over to the deck that Dante had indicated, knelt down, and held out a palm over the cards. Mumbling something beneath her breath, she waited and saw a faint blue glow. "Yeah, they're enchanted alright. I can't say what kind of enchantment, but they're probably your standard fortune-telling cards or something along those lines. The next best possibility with something like this is that they're cursed. I'd say the risk outweighs the possible benefits and wouldn't touch them." She turned at looked at the group seriously. "But I'll leave that up to you. I'd like to do a quick sweep of the rest of the islands to make sure there's not anything else we're missing, food included. In the meantime, I suggest you gather up some of those coconuts for the trip, 'kay? I'll be back in five minutes or so. Raywing!" With that, a supernatural wind took Lina up a few feet into the air. She leaned forward and skimmed off across the rocks and sand.
You guys are free to have a fight anywhere you want to, but interfering with an innocent girl’s meal is unforgivable.
Collector of Legendary Weapons
You, sirs, are harshing my buzz!
Manei DominiKyle was relieved in a sense that Jim had responded so stoically; he hadn't wanted to get involved with an in-depth discussion of what happened* . As he began to assist with repairing the ships, Jim pointed out the mysterious ships. They didn't look like they'd be bringing any good news, and this was compounded by the turrets that suddenly appeared on the deck. Kyle nodded at K. Rool and tossed the weapon to him. "I think you'll be needing this, " he said. Before he could continue talking, however, his suspicions about the ships were confirmed as the turrets and some missile launchers suddenly opened fire - thankfully, they appeared to have all the accuracy of stormtroopers and missed the ships, although it appeared that things were going to get a lot more difficult - and then some droids made their unwelcome appearance. "Oh, sithspit. If you have any EMP weapons, now would be a brilliant time to use them!" As he spoke, Kyle ignited his lightsaber, the weapon flaring into life with its' characteristic thrum as he prepared to either deflect incoming bolts or attack any opportunistic robots. "Our first priority is those turrets - if we knock them out, then everything else should be easier." Nothing can ever go right, can it? If it's not pirates looking for easy prey, then it's droids with an attitude problem. Why can't we run into something like Jawas for once?
Locking you up on radar since '09 Sing to the ocean in the afternoon haze, Up the iron pillars, rise in the waves
HunterSeeing that the responses were leaning towards not exploring the island, Samus nodded and was about to head back to the ship. They did need to cross this ocean, and it would be good if they could at least cover a lot of ground before being forced to stop again. But then, she was stopped when Dante had pointed something out, his 'scout' had found something very unusual, a set of cards just sitting there. As suspicious as it was, it really wasn't relevant to anything in her opinion. She chose to give it little thought as she spoke up. "Do whatever you want with them, there's a good chance those are just regular cards. I don't think they'll have any use besides some form of entertainment..."
DaymanAlex wasn't precisely eager to explore the island. What she needed was a cup of hot tea, and perhaps some food. She had been on the beach for several hours, with nothing to drink while standing in the hot sun. To some, that would be paradise, but the difference between Heaven and Cast Away was a thin one, one of modern convenience. Hearing the one girl's suggestion to collect coconuts, Alex shook her head. "Coconut milk is a laxative. I-I'd be cautious about that." She had seen a movie once that said that. It had been a simpler time. As for the cards, she shrugged. She had never encounter magick cards before, though she supposed that it would be an easy enough enchantment to do.
arachnidsGripSeeing how Alex had shrugged, the answer was probably that she didn't know where they came from or what they were. That was yet another mark against it, the highest one being that they weren't playing cards. Dante peered over them onto the rock for a moment, looking down at the set of cards. Now he wasn't an expert on it, not in the slightest, but the design on the back had made him think of fortune telling cards. Oh, because that was going to do them a lot of good. He shrugged and turned around, giving a backhanded wave at the deck. "Marry 'em if you wanna, not my problem. But if you want my advice, I'd leave 'em alone. Worst case scenario Free Willy comes trashin' our ship, best case scenario you make yourself a nice house of cards." he said, striding back to Samus' side. He felt a sudden weight in his hat, which must have been Beatrix landing into it. True to form, the bird poked out of the fold and chirped joyfully at the general group. His opinion said, he was ready to leave this miserable little island and back onto the ship. Although he did chuckle at Alex's mention of coconut milk being a laxative, the waver in her voice not unheard. "How long have you been out here anyway? You must be sweatin' like a pig by now." he asked the woman, before glancing up to see the Great Lina Inverse! soaring away to do a quick sweep. That kid had a mind of her own, he had to give her that much. To that, he glanced at Samus beside him. "Think we should wait for her?" What Dante might not have realized, however, was that Beatrix had decided that the glowy blue cards were far too interesting to leave alone. Against his advice, she had slipped the deck into her beak and fluttered back into his hat. When they were back on the boat, she'd take them out again to look over her prize. Dante did say to leave them alone but...he also said that she could do what she liked with them! That made it okay, right?

Kirby's search eventually led him to the sleeping quarters. He peeked in from around the corner, swiftly confirming that at least one of his targets were inside. A wide smile on his face, the puffball shuffled his way in, approaching Beryl. "Hiii~!" he greeted as he waved to her.* Kirby then proceeded to hold out one of the sheets of parchment in his hands to the demon girl. If she were to look at it, she'd see a black ink drawing with a few splotches peppered here and there, due to Kirby's inexperience with utilizing a quill. It depicted Beryl, horns drawn somewhat unevenly, standing triumphantly over what could only be the Sea King's body, complete with X's where its eyes should be. She also held Kirby high above her head, the Dreamlander holding his arms up in joy with an open-mouthed smile. Hearts of varying sizes placed around the scene added that one final touch to the drawing. Kirby looked up at Beryl expectantly, hoping she appreciated his "thank you" gift to her.

Homes verses Moriarty, Aristotle versus MASHY-SPIKE-PLATE!
Setzer tried to kick a charging ape in the stomach, but the furry humanoid simply swung a rusty pipe at him before he could attack it. Setzer was hit right in the chest, falling over in pain, as the ape screamed and taunted him.
Hajime areba owari ari..Freyjadour grinned, detaching his staff into its three sections and trapping the rusty, makeshift blade of one of the apes. He yanked back, pulling the blade from its long arms, and then stepped forwards, thrusting one of the tips of the staff into the Ape's stomach. If it connected, he would follow up with another sharp jab to the skull at full force, either knocking out of killing the ape when it connected.

GeomancerMordecai and Rigby prepared their weapons. Mordecai took his cutlass and went after one of the creatures that had a rusted weapon. Rigby on the other hand took up his musket and aimed. He aimed at any of the apes that tried to get near Sandy and fired at them. Shortly after that, he began reloading.

You got some dirt on you. Here's some more!
Renegade Magical GirlSetzer would feel a rush of wind and see a black blur pass in front of him, coming in between him and his assailant - When it halted, Hayate was standing in front of him. "Are you sure we can't resolve this with peaceful means, Mr. Ape?" he asked, smiling. In response, the monster roared and hefted its club, swinging it down at the willowy form of the butler. Said club was promptly intercepted by the cyan-haired teenager's arm, who was still beaming sweetly. "Ok then." With a lightning fast series of movements, he shifted his grip, wrenched the weapon out of its hands, and aimed a kick at the primate's gut, which would cause it to fly backwards into a tree. All within two seconds. "I thought you might have listened to reason..." "Pity." Turning around, he extended a hand to his winded comrade, and offered him the makeshift weapon. "Here. It might not be that much of a weapon, but I suppose it will have to do, sir." He ducked, and another one of the apes' swings sailed over his head. With a surprisingly swift sweep kick, he knocked it off its feet and to the ground, and came up again, resuming the conversation as if nothing had happened. "Are you alright, though?" he asked concernedly.

Credens Justitiam? Please.
PrincessRogue quickly used her Super Strength to uppercut one of the ape monsters closest to her, likely to either knock it out or break its skull.
THE SLORG!"Ah hell" Jim muttered when the beetles approached. He couldn't move fast in this suit to begin with, and the water just made it worse. Getting hit by one of the buzzsaws would be really bad so long as he was still down here, but there was little Jim could do to avoid that. In a situation like this, it was time to fall back on emergency measures, even those he'd prefer not to use. He reached one hand down to his waist and gripped something, then waited. As soon as one of them tried to get him with a buzzsaw, he'd bring up the large flintlock to block, and hoped that could stop it long enough for him to get a punch in on the main body of the beetle. Up above, #19450 watched as the ships effectively penned all four of their ships plus those on it in, and started releasing robots on their own decks. "They just took out all the escape routes, great" she said sarcastically, turning her pistols towards the robots. Now there was targets for her, besides the turrets which she apparently could also damage. However, to her, defending the others was a priority, and the turrets weren't aiming at anyone yet, so she opened fire on the robots.
Mecha-maniac"We gotta get back to the boat!" exclaimed Jenny frantically, firing a few shots at the nearest hominids that knocked them backwards. "I mean, these things won't follow us over the water, right?" She began to move backwards, occasionally firing a warning shot to keep the apelike humans at bay but clearly on the retreat, even as she was pelted by sticks and debris.
Hunter"We should start walking back, and then we'll wait for her there if she hasn't come back." Was Samus' reply when Dante asked what they should do. "We can save more time that way, it's a better alternative to standing here." The mention of looking for food did make her wonder if it would have been a good idea to try and fish while they were out at sea, if they were lucky then they could save a day's worth of food. Of course, there was no guarantee that they had the right supplies or if said catch would be safe for any of them to eat... Realizing what she was starting to think about, she felt it was best to get moving now.
Screw the Lion!After tripping one of the apes, Oswald jumped on its head to gain enough air to drop kick a second one, and then swung his shillelagh into the face of a third. "Sounds like a plan!" the rabbit cried out to Jenny. He barely dodged an axe swing of a fourth ape before punching it right in the face and joining the teenage robot in backing out.

Hajime areba owari ari..Frey waited for everyone to rush past, then raised his arm again. For the third time, the glyph blazed into existence, a high wall of fire springing up in front of him, and blocking off the Ape's pursuit.

arachnidsGrip"Aw man, but I love standing around here and doin' nothing!" Dante sarcastically said, that cocky grin flashing onto his features again. To be honest, he had hoped that her answer would be that - there was nothing more boring than standing around in this sad sack of crap that was an island. The new girl could handle herself well, chances were likely that she would join them on their trek back. And knowing her, probably with an armful of coconuts in tow. Turning around on his heel to trek back to the boat, he strode away from the beach in deceivingly long strides. Beatrix had taken to peeking out from the back of the hat and examining the new girl with a sheltered kind of curiosity. She had taken out a shotgun on them, but she just seemed kinda scared more than anything else. The others were taking her in as a new member, so she must have been pretty okay. "Hasta la vista, ya miserable little rock." Dante said, backhand waving the island without even a second glance. "Say hi to Gilligan for me." Once they had gotten back onto the boat, he realized that some introductions might be in order for the new woman. Leaning back on the railing, he gave a lazy wave at Alex. "Turns out someone got sucked in right on that island, small world after all. Don't be a stranger, babe, introduce yourself." In the back of his mind, he wondered how the woman would respond to likes of Garrus and Fawful...but she seemed much calmer now then she was before, she'd be able to handle it. Maybe some confusion here, some exclamations there. Probably no shotguns being aimed at people. Probably. Beatrix, meanwhile, had decided to show off her new prize now that she was safely on the boat. Carefully plucking out the deck of cards in the hat, she hopped onto the edge before soaring off. With a flutter, she landed on top of the cabin roof with her new found cards. Eagerly, she plucked one of them out of the deck and laid it down to examine and admire. She felt a little guilty back there for a moment, but now she could see no reason to be. They were so pretty, after all!
