[ Things Fall Apart ]

Title Text: you broke it, you bought it!

I'm not sure I've ever related more strongly to Dallas than at this moment.

I knew there was gonna be some way none of us were gonna see all that action unfold. By the time The Forgotten is defeated, the Temple will be in ruins and Res will be back to his scrawny, non-Kong form again...

But Mungo can still bash his way back in, right?

Also, was that Karishad getting snarky at the end? Wasn't he the one who kicked him out in the first place?

Kari should have "burned other stinky things" sooner.... Great job Kari Dallas. BTW Dallas is starting to grow on me, he should appear more often after this arc.

Unless I have forgotten something I'm pretty sure that isn't how Transporters work on Star Trek, but fine, it's not that big of a deal and honestly it would have been really dumb, from a story perspective, to teleport Res away anyway.

And yet Keene's hat powers keep working inside hell of all places - sorry, I'm still hung up on that! Maybe the temple's magic "clings" to the objects and creatures it spawns and the objects and creatures that enter it, and only deactivates when exposed to the mortal world specifically, thus hell (or heaven, for that matter) wouldn't trip the shutoff.

Yeah, that'll do. I can move on now.

Anyway, yeah, they could have Mungo just roll the door out of the way, but even if they could get back in, the rules of the dungeon would probably prevent them from teleporting straight from the entrance to the well chamber.

They needed to throw more dilythium crystals into the positron reactor and then reverse the polarity of the shields in order to enhance the range of the transporter.

...

No-one told Dallas that Tarot was staying
as they return to the word he was caught spraying,
leaving the fate of the world in all its’ stages
to the heavenliest host and he who fills pages.
You can’t blame him for not knowing the rules;
no-one told any of them how not to look fools.
Dressed to impress, not to fight the Hell sent;
dressed for a game, not for anything significant.
Something else is coming, the sound rumbles on;
echoing through though the entrance is gone.
Now it’s all down to the Canadian hero called Res.
Come on, eh, fella? It’s time to impress.

nah, they needed to bounce the graviton particle beam off the main deflector dish and back towards the transporter beam to cause positive interference

This isn't a Star Trek transporter, this is a simulation of a Star Trek transporter operated by a magical temple that almost certainly didn't have Star Trek in its original design, and was created by Pete, for pete's sake! Of course it's going to play jammy dodgers with the victims players!

Also, all your clever schemes forget that the increased level of polaron radiation would throw the pattern buffers into a handwave mode and everyone would come out with wings or horns. Or worse, evil-mastermind goatees which would look dashed silly on pets.

Res is going to be OK, he's still got ALL the celestials to back him up.

On the bright side - Res has the rest of the mana to himself. wonder what he can do with it?

But yes - this does not bode well for Res. D:

Tsk, tsk. you both forgot about the tachyons! Nothing in ST can be fixed without tachyons!


Say, with the door slammed shut, how are Thomas and Sophie getting out?

MAybe as long as the gateway is open there is still a connection to the temple's power. The others have left the game floor, Keene is just in a side chamber of sorts.

He didn’t kick him out of the temple though, just out of the 99th floor.

Also did Peanut draw the question mark with the intention of it being the insignia of his hat, or was he just unsure of what he was going for. :lol:

I'd like to think there would be a conveniently placed teleport portal near the entrance like in The Legend of Zelda :P

It's too late, and now you're definitely outside the temple. :P So, Dallas didn't count also Res for the teleporting? On the other hand, it's good that Res remained inside the temple, maybe being so giant could do something. :) Eheh, poor Dallas, Karishad is still blaming him. :D

Copyright? no, you can still use the ship, you just need to make it different-ish. like change it's shape to a pen cap glued to a shower curtain ring with some paint and random doodads added on, and give it a different name. (sometimes I wonder if I was the only one who figured out what the model in the fake 'old footage' in Galaxy Quest was based on.)

Dallas costume and "ear-ring" kind of blow the copyright thing anyway.

Poor Dallas... No good deed goes unKarishaded.

Isn't some degree of physical proximity required for a mass teleport? How'd Tarot get vacuumed up in the mob....is the mana all gone? Or are Res and the goat-demon doing a mana version of mud wrestling? That stuff's starting to look like cream of wheat.

Maybe the fact that Keene is mortal has to do with his hat still working.

And I share your concern for Sophie, TeflonCougar.....

I sort of wonder if Joey will have magic from now on. After all the opener of ways got to keep his powers outside of the temple. No idea for how long though its been a couple years now since hes used it.

He might have bought it from a licensed costume shop or some sort of Star Trek store in which case copyright is still upheld. Unless he made it himself and at Dallas' level of geek that is entirely possible.

Wait, what footage?

Is Dallas's bothered look at the door closing, or at Karishad?

After Res jumped over her to challenge The Forgotten she was closer than Res. It picked the closest 11 pets.

Since Dallas is a character in a comic strip he's not the one with the copyright problem. Paramount is not going to go after Rick for this, they allow an awful lot of fanac, but technically Rick doesn't have a license for it...
