     Chapter 0/story so far 
Reprinted from the sign ups thread, this is the original introduction to the game which introduces the concept of the shadow man.

Once upon a time, Mariglenica was a peaceful world where there was no evil at all. But a terrible experiment by one of the world's greatest Mages ended all that. A vicious villain called the Doom Lord was created that day and the peace of Mariglenica was shattered completely. After witnessing her entire family perishing in flames and her home completely leveled, Sarah Blueskies uses the one remaining Dimensional portal to call for help to stop the evil Doom Lord Empire before all of Mariglenica and the rest of the Multiverse falls.

Now operating from Logopolis, this desperate separate group of heroes and anti-heroes face all sorts of horrific monsters and situations in order to save Mariglenica.

A shadowy dimension in a shadowy house sits a shadowy man.

“Hello there! Didn’t see you! You are a fellow or lady known as a Troper aren’t you? I heard of your kind and it finally good to meet some of you. I am guessing you are wondering why I am here giving introductions to our little tale in the making yes? Then pull up a chair and listen to what I have to say, ”

The man in black points towards a set of chairs and gestures to a tea set which was laid out in anticipation of the Troper’s arrival.

“My name is Simon Culp and I am a gentleman, exactly what I am is not important to our little drama but I am the narrator and as such I am the one who sees all and knows all. One of my unfortunate side effects of being an omnipresent narrator is I have seen several futures related to a certain upcoming event. I have seen Death, I have seen Destruction the deaths of every single world and city ever created by people from this forum and it all stems from an incident on a world called Mariglenica. Very soon a call is going be heard from a young girl called Gruppetto Harmonica Melodica although some may know of her as Sarah Blueskies. For the future of both Mariglenica and the entire shared TV tropes universe, I pray you hear the call and join in the fight against an evil empire, farewell and hopefully I shall see you soon...”


     Chapter 1/2: Pages 1- 6 

Sarah sends for help and gets it. After finding out that Freedom fighter leaders Dorrace and David Daark (Younger brother of the psychopath of the same name) are scheduled to be executed within three days, Sarah and her team make their way to Abyssia to stop it.

Hoping to sneak in via the hidden Tonberry city under Abyssia, the group make their way underground but unfortunately run into the evil David Daark. After a battle with Daark (revealed to be a fake) several of the heroes are demoralized until the two Tonberry twins Palom and Polom arrive.

The hunters killing the Tonberries were defeated easily by the group but Daark was several steps ahead. Thanks to a Traitor within the Tonberries, an orb was planted which stripped all magic usage out of Abyssia. Sarah and the group attempted to destroy the orb, but an self destruct began to count down. If it exploded, the water from the lakes of the city would flood the caves, killing everyone.

After the orbs magic retarding power was shattered, Dorrace Daark sacrificed his life in order to open a teleportation spell and save the group and the Tonberries. His son joined them in escaping.

Now the sinister Doom lord sends his vampire minions to hunt down the second ingredient he needs for his evil plans....

What is Operation Toxification?

     Chapter 3: High Twilight: 6- 14 

Sarah reveals that the next mission will take them to the Freedom States to stamp out a group of vampires called The Sisterhood of the Ebon Twilight.

Due to Sarah's last encounter with the Sisterhood of the Ebon Twilight (which ended up with something unspeakably vile happening to her), David leads the group through the teleportation portal. Joining them were new recruits Doctor McNinja and Maria Renard.

Once there, they are attacked by the Leader of the Sisterhood Rosa and her army of Witherlings. After a great battle, which revealed two deeply buried secrets about the leaders of the resistance, thee vampires were defeated and the team met a new Ally, A pureblood vampire who hunts evil vampires called Floyd Lawson.

Now they prepare to interrogate Rosa while Z (who seems to have some kind of affection for Sarah), stunned after the revelation that Rosa and her cult had kidnapped raped and almost turned Sarah years ago, holds back his growing rage at this.

His anger is channeled elsewhere as Daark reveals that a Tonberry, known as Aesop, has told them of the whereabouts of the base and that he is on his way to the teams base to kill all those who were inside it. Deciding to move on with the interrogation, Floyd suggests going to Lawson Lane. During the opening of the teleportation gate (Our heroes have since learned that using more than one mage merely drains them rather than kill), Bob jumps through before David could finish it and he ends up back at the base. Zexion is ordered to follow.

Team 1: The group reach Lawson Lane and commence the interrogation. Using magic Marisa, Z and David go inside Rosas mind. She is ready for them and reveals to them the day she raped Sarah.

Team 2: Bob and Zexion hook up the cables needed to activate a powerful teleportation device to land the base in Logopolis. They succeed but not before Zexion (who has a beef with Aesop, ) tortures and makes good on his promise to implant C4 inside the hapless Tonberry. Savant also makes her first proper appearance shocking Sarah, who thought she was a head on a TV screen. After the safe removal of the base (And Zexion detonating the Tonberry in Daarks face poisoning him) Sarah and Zexion decide to head to Lawson Lane to help the others. Bob meanwhile...

BOBS STORY: After Savant infects Daark''s defences with a virus, Bob is sent by Sarah to find out the Truth about Operation Toxification. However, he instead discovers something else entirely. The Sarah that has been with him and Zexion is a fake. After freeing the real one, he gets into a battle with Daark. Savant manages to teleport Sarah back to base but is interrupted by the security returning online before she could save Bob. His final fate is unknown....

Meanwhile: The false Sarah reveals herself as Mindy Magus, David's wife who appeared to die two years previously. After revealing her tragic tale to the team, they cannot bear to hurt her. Once David and the others return from their spell, he frees her and finds out that their love for each other is as strong as ever. The sugary moment is ruined though as Rosa breaks free of her imprisonment and escapes....

     Chapter 4: A song from her memory 14- 19 

After saying goodbye to Floyd, who has elected to continue to hunt for Rosa and her cult, the group returns to begin their preparations to save Sarah only to find her in a hospital bed looking really frail. David decides to pull in a favour and calls in "Raz" Aquato in order to remove Sarah's accumulated Baggage....

Raz alongside a new influx of heroes make their way to Mariglenica and were getting to know the other heroes. Raz makes his way into Sarah's mind and runs into a road block. It appears that Mariglenian minds require the aid of at least one Mariglenian Mage to enter....

Meanwhile Daark begins to change as a result of his battle with bob...what will this Pokémon evolve into? (Joke sort of...)

Coincidentally David also begins to change resulting him in becoming green skinned with yellow eyes and a rather annoying perky new attitude to life.

Mindy takes charge of the group and they split into three groups on three different missions....

Group 1: Raz, Z and David

They make their way into the rather tangled mind of Sarah Blueskies. David and Raz go deal with Sarahs baggage while Z finds out about Sarahs background and how she has never been able to love anyone until she met Z. She tells him that she loves him and he responds back by revealing he is just as much in love with her. Breaking her out of her depression the true villian is revealed to be Evan Beckar Daark, Davids uncle. He is defeated ad expelled out of Sarahs mind thanks to the combined effort of Sarah, Z, David and Raz.

group 2 Maria, Marisa, Floyd and a heck of a lot of Tonberries

The group, after getting a distress call from Floyd, finds his house destroyed and him feeding on a big yellow bird. Something bad had clearly happened; What Floyd told them will change things forever. The doom lord plans to awaken a special weapon known as the Toxifier. It has enough power to wipe out Mariglenica several times over. Armed with this new info they return to the base and are promptly attacked by their own security system. It is revealed that Savant has apparently betrayed the group and is taken down before killing Sarah.

Group 3 Mindy, Jotaro, John, Dr mcninja

The group head to the island of Sappho in order to find out if they are the next to be struck by the empire. Thanks to the very clumsy Savant, they have been taken to the opposite side of the island. After following some music they are ambushed by a group of Lamia warriors. They appear to kill Mindy and attack the others. But Mindy is pure rubber and a snapped neck will not work on her. The fight continues until the stuff at the base is solved. They then return minus Doctor Mcninja and gaining a kid called Orion who knows Z somehow....


With Sarah saved and Savants betrayal revealed to be caused by a mysterious being called a sheeda spinerider. The group leave Sarah and Z alone. They become a couple and Sarah makes Z her knight.

David coughs up green blood and puts it down to his recent trip into Sarahs mind.

Savant talks to Daark. It appears that she truly is a traitor and is ready to hand over the key to the toxifier to the villians...

     Chapter 5: The final days of Mariglenica 19- 25 
Several weeks into the future an unknown event has changed things entirely. A mysterious figure watches the chaos and recalls the events which lead to this future.

In the past David witnesses some terrible visions which according to the figure every has been having. But only David remembers. His eyes burst completly from the horrible things he saw and is blinded.

At a small orphanage in logopolis a man who looks like known Ansem retort psychopath Axel rose donates a large amount of money to the orphanage. This angers the real Axel who astride his world killing whale goes after the figure. He is revealed to be Daark and a huge battle begins.

Daark is clearly getting his ass kicked by both Axel and surprisingly ran. The battle completely destroys Logopolis, fearing he could lose this fight He summons the god of chaos Iscariot and bonds with him becoming the Iscariot avatar Daark.

But even this is not helping him win the battle....

Meanwhile David Magus attempts to get Zexion to implant some new eyes while the rest of the team begin evacuation protocals. The base disappears leaving the two ansem retorters, Ran and David on their own.

Chapter 5b: Gears of War

One week later

The group left behind storm Daark castle and massacre thousands of soldiers working their way up to Daark and the doom lord. Axel and Zexion take on Daark while Ran and David face the doom lord. The battles are tough and there seems to be no end in sight for David and Rans fight.

Axel meanwhile is kicking Daarks arse all over the place. Daark is losing badly to Axel until he is taken over by the god of chaos known as the Iscariot.

Elsewhere in the castle Doctor Mcninja is on a rescue mission to save Bob. He gets through the castle easily due to a lack of staff in the current chaos. But just as he was about to free Bob he bumps into Evan Beckar and a fight begins.

Meanwhile in Arana the group in the base decide to go to the temple of time to find an airship known as the invincible. They meet Floyds younger sister Frieda and the former evil vampire called Rosa who appears to have had a change in heart and wants to be a hero. No one trusts her....

They make their way into the base and find that many of the traps have been disabled. More worrying than that however is that the two vampires in the team sense something evil in the very bottom of the temple...

Chapter 5c: The fall of the Daark Empire

The group in the temple discover Andrellia dark goddess of time within the bowels of the temple guarding her airship. They are ready to fight but she feels battle is beneath her and instead taunts the group with knowledge of their futures.

Meanwhile at the castle Dr mcninja fights Evan and they are evenly matched. The dr blinds him with a smoke grenade and Evan accidently slices a huge gash into Savant who had just shown up to taunt Bob.

Meanwhile the fight between Axel and Daark intensifies. Ran escapes the castle with a near dead David and the sheer intensity of the fight collapses several parts of the castle.

Bob is freed during the chaos and burns Evan to death. The dr escapes from the castle alongside the badly wounded Savant just in time as Zexion and Axel sensing that the Iscariot was more powerful now merge into Andrew Jackson!

At the base Ran arrives with David and allows him to have a final moment with his wife. He then activates a teleporter and arrives at the temple. David then puts his bloodied hands on the ground and chants a powerful spell. He then removes his own heart thus activating the spell and removing the dark gods from their tenuous hold on Mariglenica.

The iscariot also disappears leaving a broken and insane Daark alone. Andrew jackson then finishes him off completely...

As the dark energy inside Daark tears both him and the castle apart. The doom lord uses this moment to activate the toxifier and escape.

A week later.

The group says their final goodbyes to their fallen friend David but are horrified when a deadly fog appears and affects the members of the group with links to magical creatures...

The doom lord laughing at what he has caused gets his power removed by Lezard valeth who then casually kills the doom lord...

After this Sarah stupidly tells him that Frieda is her daughter hoping that he would love her even more with no secrets between them.
