There's been a jailbreak in the quiet town of Port Polka.

The radio waves have been taken over, screeching hideously and endlessly.

Smoke chokes the sky as bridges and buildings burn.

All 8 types of dastardly Disco Biscuits have been found in the town's water supply.

Nearly all normal humans have devolved into maniacally dancing freaks, dancing so hard that they can't stop to eat, drink, or drive properly.

There can be only one cabal of cads and fiends who are fresh and funky enough to pull something like this...

The Disco Division!!

Meanwhile, deep inside The Iron Boot's lair, his mom's house, The Iron Boot sips away at a glass of tainted water. Nothing happens to him due to his mutant genetics. But when his mother drinks from the same glass, she starts convulsing... Then frothing at the mouth... Then she begins... To do the Monster Mash!! She jumps right out of the apartment building's 8th story window!! It was a graveyard smash!!

"Iron Mooooooom!! Nooooo!!"

The Iron Boot runs to the window and looks out. Iron Mom is flattened. But that's not all...

The whole city is on fire, loud music clashes with other insanely loud music, cars crash constantly, and glass breaks as more people shimmy and shake out of their skyscrapers!!

Completely immune to the water thanks to his mutant genes...
Completely hateful towards dancing of any kind thanks to his heavy Iron Boot...
And completely devoted to combatting evil, thanks to his mutated Iron morals...

The Iron Boot rushes to the Mutie Phone (his mom's cell phone on the kitchen counter) and calls up all of his low-tier "super"-powered mutant friends to help him stop the Disco Division's crimewave.

There are 7 types of enemy mobs and 5 legendary arch-villains enlisted in the Disco Division. Let's learn who our enemies are! (stats subject to change)

There's Private Potato Salad, Lieutenant Limbo, Master Sergeant Stanky Legg, Major General Monkey Bravo, and their Supreme Commander, Tango.

They leads masses of manic malingerers! There are the Boom-Boxers, Jive Turkeys, Breaktrancers, Safety Dancers, Haka Hulks, Dagga Drivers and Ballroom Blitzers!

...

Wow! That's a lot of gallivanting goons!! Good thing each Mutant Mosher can move and use TWO (2) actions per turn!! (Basic Attacks, Mutant Powers, or Special Interactions)

Now, let's get this rinkydink ruse on the road with...

A tutorial fight!!

...

The Iron Boot makes it to the bottom floor of his apartment building, and greets his first-responder Mutant Mosher teammates (you) in the lobby! As they formulate a plan, none other than the puerile Private Potato Salad herself bursts through the window with a squad of a Boom Boxer, a Safety Dancer, and a Breaktrancer!

They're all grooving out to The Casualties and The Ramones. They flap their arms, bang their heads, and stamp their feet.

They spot The Iron Boot not dancing and ask what his deal is, man!

The crew of first responder mutants valiantly step to his defense.
"Hey! He may smell poorly..."
"...drool a lot..."
"...have a bad sense of fashion..."
"...and be a bit of a cranky coot!
"...But you've got to stop dancing! This is madness!"

They won't listen to reason, and they won't stop trying to get you to dance with them!! It's kind of tempting!!! It's a fight!!! They wanna dance you dead!!

>After you've created your Mutant Mosher, stage them in the PINK, NUMBERED STARTING ZONE. Tell me which pink numbered hex you wish to spawn in. Only one Mutant Mosher can occupy a hex at a time. The map in this image is the actual Tutorial map!

*** QM notes and schedule: ***

-PLAYERS CAN JOIN IN AT ANY TIME, even during battles. Just create a Mutant Mosher and tell me you want to join, I'll zoop you into the fight with my handy dandy New Character Zooper.

-A skirmish is a multiplayer quest, a fun and small commitment for both you and I. I will cap off created, active players at 12, if we make it that high. If anyone bails or doesn't take their turn in time before an update and we're waiting on them, late-comers may suggest actions for another character or create a new one at the expense of killing off an old one. Out of courtesy, try to give it ~5 turns before killing off an idle, living Mutant Mosher. This should give a grace period of about a day or two for idle players to return.

-Mechanics are subject to change; wildly, rapidly, mundanely, controversially, or otherwise.

-Deaths are permanent. If your Mutant Mosher dies, he's gone forever. You can make another and join the fight again immediately next turn, but they'll start somewhere far away on the map, and have beginner stats (only 10 stat points to allocate again).

-Sessions will be updated multiple times daily. Don't expect updates from Midnight-8AM PST, I'll probably be asleep. Otherwise, I'll try to update turns as soon as everyone's actions are in, or it's been "enough" time. ;) My intention is to run at least 2-3 or more full turns a day, making this skirmish paced medium or medium-fast. Not too hot, not too cold. Hopefully.

-During live sessions, a turn's length may be as low as ~4 hours before the next turn if I'm feeling really frisky. So if you don't have your turn in and we're waiting on you, you may get skipped or controlled by external forces (QM or other players). Don't sweat it, though, eez joest gaem.

-Now with 100% real vegetables

-We'll wait ~24 hours for people to join in and create their Mutant Moshers, then we'll start the Tutorial fight!

-Ask (questions) and you shall receive (answers). Thanks for joining the Mosh!

>The Humorless Bard
>Once a member of the Disco Division himself, The Humorless Bard was kicked out for his gross musical incompetence and awful attitude working against the goals of the organization to cause people to dance. Swearing revenge against the "tasteless troglodytes", The Humorless Bard began actively resisting the Division's efforts to surprising success. He is very driven, and has trained himself to withstand powerful blows, whether physical or otherwise. The Bard was originally given his moniker by the Division as a way to mock him, but now he wears it with pride, showing the just how "Humorless" he can really be.

Lightning Larry aka That one Static Electricity Guy

>As a kid Larry lived in a house with carpeted floors and 2 siblings. One particularly dry day both siblings zapped him with static electricity at the same time a solar flare occurred. The result caused Larry to develop minor electric powers though he would always claim it was due to a lightning strike to sound more impressive. While he has been active for a while his trackrecord isn't too impressive but he did stop the Pacemaker-Gang. The fights against the Cheese-Crooks and the Human Insulator were all done by some impostor who was clearly ruining his name, as he will explain to anyone who mentions those embarrassments.

>His Shocking Grasp allows him to deliver as the name suggests a (minor static) shock to anything he touches.

The Humorless Bard - 25HP | 3 Move | Resist 35 | 1d6 basic attack, Range 5
That One Static Electricity Guy - 20HP | 4 Move | Resist 13 | 1d9 basic attack

>>5272637
Someone with inside intel, we can always use someone like you! It's also quite nice to have someone in the squad with the rare RANGED basic attack!! While most other super schmucks like the Iron Boot and That One Static Electricity Guy have to get close to physically harm foes with basic attacks, The Humorless Bard has a basic attack that allows him to throw a sour note up to 5 tiles away! Just imagine if that wicked power was utilized for evil by the Disco Division! Glad you're on our side.

It's estimated that only about one in 6 Mutant Moshers develop a ranged attack, or about 2 or 3 max per group at any given time. However, with the right Mutant Powers or some creative Special Interactions, no Mutant Mosher is truly left without ranged options.

>>As a kid Larry lived in a house with carpeted floors and 2 siblings
God damn I love good foreshadowing like that. Wait, did anything happen to the 2 siblings? Also, nice character. So far you're the quickest of the group with 4 Movement Points!

Here are your stat blocks, complete with Mutant Powers. Let me know if you had something else in mind, or any changes you'd like to see, and we can workshop it.

>The Humorless Bard - 25HP | 3 Move | Resist 35 | 1d6 basic attack, Range 5
Wicked Jeer, Cooldown: 1 turn. Deals a basic attack to any foe at UNLIMITED RANGE! Attack anyone on the map with a nasty quip, just know they'll be coming for you... With a +3 mod to attacks on you!!!
Revolting Refrain, Cooldown: Cooldown: 2 turns. Removes all dance effects on all other Mutant Moshers in Range 2. Can't target self.**
Showtime Staunchness, Cooldown: 3 turns! Heals 2HP per friend or foe within Range 2. Cannot heal past full HP. If amount healed surpasses Full HP, remove all Dances from The Humorless Bard.
Dur: 5, Str: 0, Mag: 1, Spd: 0, Cha: 4
**Couldn't think of a compromise on the "losing momentum" part, but I think it's still balanced. Here are some proposals I've thought up:
Proposal A: Leave as is (default option)
Proposal B: Turn it into a single target move and allow self-targeting, increase the Range to 5 and lower the Cooldown to 1.
Proposal C: Increase Cooldown to 3, and add a +20 mod to Resisting a new Dance for 1 turn.
Proposal D: Increase Range to 3, and add a -15 mod to Resisting a new Dance for 1 turn.
Proposal E: Write in

>That One Static Electricity Guy (Larry) - 20HP | 4 Move | Resist 13 | 1d9 basic attack
Shocking Grasp, Cooldown: 0 turns! Adds +3 to his basic attack dice, but gives a cumulative -10 to Resists until next turn.
Photon Flashbang, Cooldown: 2 turns. All enemies in Range 3 have all of their rolls halved until your next turn.
Magnetizer, Cooldown 3 turns! Removes any Dancing effects on self and deals 1d10 damage to all goons (Non-BOSS foes) in Range 3. Affected foes who don't die prioritize Larry for attack next round.
Dur: 2, Str: 2, Mag: 4, Spd: 2, Cha: 0

>Seneca, Disco Foreteller - 17HP | 4 Move | Resist 29 |1d10 basic attack
Rearranger, Cooldown: 1 turn. Can control a friend or foe within Range 5, and make them move up to 5 tiles away from their current hex.
ULTRACORE, Cooldown: 1 turn. Sacrifice 1HP, then attack a foe within Range 5 for 1d20 damage!
The Question And The Answer, Cooldown: 1 turn. All goons (Non-BOSS foes) within Range 2 cannot inflict Dancing effects next turn, only attack damage. This also deals basic attack damage to ONE (1) ADJACENT (Range 1) enemy, which you may announce or leave up to chance.
Dur: 1, Str: 0, Mag: 5, Spd: 2, Cha: 2

>Revolting Refrain compromise
I mainly put in "losing momentum" in as a downside to the ability (in the form of -1 Action or losing movement or something), but if you think it's fine without it, I'm happy with how it is. Though maybe, could we give it a malus to movement (next turn if doing it current turn is too hard?) in exchange for reducing the cooldown or extending the range? How does that sound? Giving a malus to resisting a new dance doesn't make much thematic sense to me.

That +3 Mod to attacks against me in Wicked Jeer is for damage right? Would it be possible to change the +3 against me into a -3 on the attack or something? I have precedent for this in describing it as a "small amount of damage". I don't like the idea of it giving a bonus against me, kind of diminishes the "tank" idea by making me less tanky, so I'd like to try to work in some other disadvantage to the ability. Also, Basic Attacks don't have a cooldown, right? So I'd be able to Basic Attack independent of the Wicked Jeer cooldown?

Showtime Staunchness is exactly how I envisioned it, looks good.

Is it just me or is ULTRACORE insane?
>>
>>5273127
Actually, I didn't envision the Dance self heal in Showtime Staunchness. Perhaps reducing cooldown by 1 in exchange for removing the self-Dance-remove? Though maybe not, it kind of makes sense both thematically and design-wise. Eh, maybe I'll sleep on it.
>>
>>5273141
As for basic attacks, yes, there is no Cooldown. You could basic attack twice a turn every turn, provided there are targets nearby.

I think your compromise on Wicked Jeer is a good change, let me know if you'd like to stick with it, as of now, I plan on using it. It'll keep unlimited range, but I plan to reduce the damage a bit or set it low, and remove the modifier as suggested.

However, if I reduce the Cooldown on Staunchness, I would have to reduce the Range or HP healed to 1 to keep it balanced. Let me know if you want either of those changes.

>>5272711
>God damn I love good foreshadowing like that. Wait, did anything happen to the 2 siblings?

Well, lets say that if Larry dies he will be avenged

>One freak accident is all it takes to turn one into freak. Cristal would know this as during the night she was helping in reptile house of zoo a truck would barrel through the wall. When she woke up after being hit by the truck or debris it did seem like she was stuck in rubble and surrounded by radioactive crystals and now freed reptiles. After coming to her senses she noticed that rubble felt surprisingly light. When the rescuers came she was already standing at crash site looking how she now had reptile like claws and scaled arms, legs and tail with some sort of poison flowing between scales and claws crystalizing when it got outside. She has mostly used her powers when something has disturbed her peace while she rested in the warm light and now this music is getting on her nerves.

>Crystaline Claws: Extends claws by crystalising poison on while leaving some to leak.
>Crystaline Shell: Pumps extra crystaline poison to scaled body parts to create an armor.
>Poison Wave: Plashes crystaline poison on enemies around her to slow down or stop them by encasing them in crystal.

> Dur:6, Str:3, Mag:1, Spd:0, Cha:0

>>5273233
I'd like to stick with my compromise of Wicked Jeer, yes.

For Staunchness, I'll keep it as is.
>>
>>5273127
The Humorless Bard's Mutant Powers are solidified!
>ULTRACORE OP?
1d20 can still be a really weak hit like a 3, and as it stands, only 2 of the 7 goons would be 1HKO'd with a 20 roll (only 2 with a 19, and they are purposefully frail), so I think it'll be okay. I think it fits the character as a whole, especially since they're not heavy on HP themselves. Kind of like a glass cannon.

>>5273248
Don't talk like that, Larry, we'll make it through this fucking unbearable music and the lunatics dancing to it!!

Another first responding Mutant Mosher answers the call!

>Crystalline Riptail (Cristal) - 28HP | 3 Move | Resist 7 | 1d8 basic attack
A freaky female with a forked, toxic tongue and bulging bio-crystal muscles! She's serpentine, crystalline, just plain mean!!
Crystalline Claws, Cooldown 1 turn. Reach out up to Range 3 and perform a basic attack with a +1 damage mod! If you attack an adjacent foe (Range 1), it's a +3 damage mod instead!!
Crystalline Shell, Cooldown 2 turns. Gives you a shield preventing up to 10 damage from the first attack you defend against next turn. You also auto-roll up to 3 Nat100's on your Resistance Rolls against Dances next turn.
Poison Wave, Cooldown 0 turns! Name ONE (1) of the 8 Deadly Dance to prevent. This Dance cannot be applied by foes for ONE (1) turn. You also gain +1 Move this turn. **
Dur:6, Str:3, Mag:1, Spd:0, Cha:0

**With its 0 turn Cooldown, Poison Wave can be used twice in a turn to completely nullify any one type of goon's Dances at a time. i.e.: Using it twice and preventing both Headbanging and Finger Snapping would mean that no Boom-Boxer on the map could inflict any Dances, only damage. Find goon stats on pastebin.com/R77Xbfye

I won't mention this going forward for the sake of brevity, but if there's something you'd like to change about your new Mutant Mosher (especially Mutant Powers), then please let me know and feel free to make suggestions as exampled with The Humorless Bard (>>5273127)

~

We'll be deploying in about 4 hours!!

New Mutant Moshers are free to join at any time!!

There is an incentive to all "first responding mutants" who deploy before the first Enemy Phase occurs -- they will get an ADDITIONAL +1 Stat Point at the end of the map if they can survive the Tutorial!

Private Potato Salad mocks The Iron Boot relentlessly. She moves in, about to begin striking him with a dance move when she realizes she's outnumbered!! There are at least 5 Mutant Moshers, and only 4 Disco Division soldiers!!

She beats a hasty, very stylish retreat, and commands her men to make you dance! Cuz your friends don't dance, and if they don't dance, then they're... No friends of theirs!

OBJECTIVE: SURVIVE 4 TURNS or DEFEAT PRIVATE POTATO SALAD!!
>State your Mutant Mosher name or Stat Block and choose a pink numbered dino to deploy on!!! If you feel confident, go ahead and state your first turn as well. Look at The Iron Boot's example in the next post.

>End turn

Reminders:
-One man per hex, hex cannot be more than 50% covered by obstacles like mountains or buildings. The only tiles in play on this map are the light grey hexes. You can move thru friends but not foes.

When I have a modifier to damage, like some dances and Wicked Jeer can do, does that change the face of the die I use, or do I use my normal die and apply the modifier to the damage?

Do you think you could add what enemy symbol on the map corresponds to which enemy name in the pastebin?

Also, what is the range of B-Boy Bonk?

Dance roll

youtube.com/watch?v=d1J3NLNWAPU

Private Potato Salad waltzes up to the apparent powerhouse of the group, Crystalline Riptail, and hits her with a Basic Attack. As a Boss, she bypasses all Resistance, and immediately applies Finger Snapping to Cristal!!

Even if she wasn't a Boss, Finger Snapping has a +10 infection rate mod, making it the hardest Dance to avoid! And with Cristal's sorely low Resistance of only 7, she had no chance of resisting Finger Snapping from any source at this point.

We still roll a Dance die to see how long the Dance lasts, and a Resistance roll, even now, just in case it would affect the outcome.

This one applies the Dance known as Popping and Locking, a very expressive form of Dance that prevents all Actions!! You can still Move, and enemies will not attack you! Choose your Actions (wisely) anyway though, this Dance (as well as Tangoing) are unique in that you roll again every turn to try to overcome them.

The Iron Boot sees that the Popping and Locking is a much bigger threat to the operation than any Finger Snapping! "I'll help you, don't worry, Larry!"

Do you ignore the Safety Dancer to focus on the goal, and smash Private Potato Salad first?
Or is he too much of a nuisance to leave alone?
Either way, don't let that Breaktrancer smack your group with his B-Boy Bonk next turn!

Hah, is that all they got? Maybe we got lucky and encountered the smallest force full of the most incompetent buffoons... It's a sure thing that these battles only get more difficult going forward...

But don't count your winnings before you've won, Pvt. Potato Salad is still unscathed!! Scathe her good and clear this map!!! Or just survive 3 more rounds of her assault... You got this!

Due to your Finger Snapping, you deal only 3 damage! The Breaktrancer snickers at you, escaping the ordeal with 1HP remaining!! Luckily, you are no longer afflicted by the filthy "Dance".

If only Cristal were similarly free from the Dance... Maybe she can just power through the effects?

Private Potato Salad still mocks us with a full 25 HP.

Alas, it's useless. Even with a max roll of 29, you'd still be stuck snapping your fingers for 3 turns. Luckily it's only a -2 mod and not something more serious.

Now face the music and take the damage!

If the fucking leaf had gotten luckier and this roll was high, Seneca could've been dead, forever. It's that easy. Remember that in non-tutorial missions!! Protect the weak and tank out the beefy!

No worries, unfortunately it's too late to hit the Photon Flashbang to any effect, but feel free to use it against the cad now in Phase 3, in case she keeps going after Seneca with her remaining goon! There's a real danger there!

And remember, you can perform up to 2 actions per turn! While you're in there, hit a Shocking Grasp or Basic Attack, too!

In more dire circumstances, other players or I may suggest actions to be used for any absent person's turn in pursuit of preservation of that Mutant or the mission/Moshers at large.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

They're as ornery as cornered skunks now!

Take it to 'em!! Private Potato Salad still has full HP, but his only backup is left at 1HP!

Take the goon out, and the Boss's Basic Attack has no chance of killing Seneca, but will you be sacrificing the bonus if you fail to beat the Boss in time?

You're trying to formulate a plan, but the ruckus of Port Polka is intensifying and getting louder!!

From the distance more amps approach, all feedbacking flagrantly, and... Marching. Lots of haphazard marching footsteps.

You've got 2 or 3 turns until that army gets close and you've got to skedaddle. Get a jumpstart by defeating the zone's Boss! No matter what, you gotta survive!

The Iron Boot steps back to get his breath, and to let the young guns hound the fame, before making his own move.

Go ahead and spend these on your attributes now! Remember that 10 is the cap!

Maps get bigger and enemies get badder, maybe you need more Move? Invest in Spd! 2 SPD = 1 Move!
Future maps also get more populated with enemies, do you have enough HP? Invest in Dur!
What about attack power and resistance to dance? Don't forget about your Mag, Str and Cha stats!

Everyone should have a total of 14 distributed stat points before the deploying in the next mission. (You may only add points to an attribute, not subtract or move them around.)

The Iron Boot's stat upgrades:
DUR: 2 -> 3
STR: 5
MAG: 1
SPD: 0 -> 2
CHA: 2 -> 3

Okay, I maaayyyyy have to nerf ULTRACORE a bit after all (lower attack dice or increase Cooldown or HP loss) I feel kinda cheap doing it now so I won't change it just yet, especially since the battles and bosses only get more difficult from here on out!! You have been warned!

Here we go, Mutant Moshers, listen up!

We've broken out of the apartment building where Iron Mom died, rushed passed her corpse, and defeated one of the main culprits who caused her death in the first place.

But screeching speakers from the approaching Army scream so loudly, The Humorless Bard's ears begin to bleed!

We've got to get out of the city!!

Run, Mutant Moshers, run!!!!!!!!!!!

You can hear Lieutenant Limbo and his hit squad of Ballroom Blitzers coming for you...

(Picrelated, just the top row and Obstacles for this map)
The terrain here is much different than before, pay attention!! In addition to the mundane Rocky Road, which transfers no bonuses or penalties...
There is a patch of Jungle Jam in the West, which makes it easier to Resist a Dance when you stand in it!
Misty Mountain tiles also give you the same +10 Resistance against Dances, but watch out -- moving through one Misty Mountain tile costs 2 Movement Points!!
If you've got to traverse the map quickly, go through the path of least resistance (aka avoid Misty Mountain tiles)!
>>
In the heat of the pursuit, our forces get completely scattered all over the map!!

To the north, Lt. Limbo and his main force look to hunt you through the streets, mountains and jungles if need be.

Hidden in the Lieutenant's low-hanging pocket are a pair of Breaktrancers, and Boom-Boxers are scattered around the field, accented with a few gargantuan Haka Hulks.

The Iron Boot realizes he's been separated from the main force of Mutant Moshers. "Drats..."

He calls out loud to the group, "reunite and dig in, Mutant Moshers!! We fight them here!! Leave not a single dancer, prancer, dasher or vixen standing!!!"

OBJECTIVE: ROUT THE ENEMY!!!!
>It's Mosher Phase 1!! Deploy on a Pink Dino** and make your moves and actions!!
**Only one Mutant can deploy from any given Dino, pay attention to which ones your teammates deploy from, and where they land, of course!

We've got approximately... 5 or 6 hours, then the Division Phase begins!!

BATTLE THEME: youtube.com/watch?v=XphUURIAx5g

Updated Stat Blocks:
The Iron Boot - 23HP | 4 Move | Resist 25 | 1d10 basic attack
DUR: 3, STR: 5, MAG: 1, SPD: 2, CHA: 3

The Humorless Bard - 29HP | 3 Move | Resist 49 | 1d6 basic attack, Range 5
DUR: 7, STR: 0, MAG: 1, SPD: 0, CHA: 6

That One Static Electricity Guy (Larry) - 24HP | 4 Move | Resist 22 | 1d10 basic attack
DUR: 4, STR: 2, MAG: 5, SPD: 2, CHA: 1

Seneca, Disco Foreteller - 19HP | 4 Move | Resist 43 |1d11 basic attack
DUR: 2, STR: 0, MAG: 6, SPD: 2, CHA: 4

Crystalline Riptail (Cristal) - 29HP | 3 Move | Resist 21 | 1d10 basic attack
DUR: 6, STR: 5, MAG: 1, SPD: 0, CHA: 2

(Stats and a Mutant Power or two still need to be updated on the pastebin. That's coming later today.)
>>
Crystalline Riptail and The Humorless Bard, having only 3 movement points, cannot move through 2 Misty Mountain tiles in one turn!!

Luckily, Poison Wave can get Cristal an extra Movement Point or two if she really needs to run, and her Crystalline Claws can reach out a solid 3 tiles!
The Humorless Bard is similarly blessed with his ranged attacks! But if he should need to run away, he could get easily cornered in the Misty Mountains! You've been warned!!

[The Iron Boot will deploy last and in the most isolated and inconvenient position, for lulz, mainly]

All Cooldowns and HP are refreshed at the start of a new map

(With the Misty Mountain terrain, you can only move 2, 3 this turn unfortunately, but next turn you can move once onto a Misty Mountain tile and then twice on Rocky Road tiles! Watch out for the Boss and his Ballroom Blitzers, though, you may want to hide for a turn or two!)

You'll be out of this mountainous muck in no time. But for now, you're still well within range to smack that Boom Boxer into next week!

7+3 (Shocking Grasp)
10+3 (Shocking Grasp)
23 damage = 2/25 HP remaining on BoomBoxer closest to Lt. Limbo.

-20 Resist from Shocking Grasps, +10 from terrain. Net -10 Resist roll next turn.

Wow, what a lunkhead!! You just about gave him your best shot!! How did he withstand all that damage?! He's groggy though, you could blow on him and he'd fall over now!!

Did all the other Mutant Moshers deploy in the Jungle Jam and Rocky Roads, or was there another hero there to help him in the early goings?

Yes, harken to the south! The Humorless Bard jumps in and annihilates the Boom-Boxer by quite literally blowing on him! He's got quite the strong breath!!

He goes for a Wicked Jeer and bellows "Yours is a lost CLAWS!"

The Boom-Boxer thinks hard, hand on his hip and other on his chin. "I don't remember signing any contracts..."

"No, like cause! Lost cause, get it?"

The Wicked Jeer tickles the inside of the Boom-Boxer's brain, but barely does 1 damage.

Quick change to OBJECTIVE so we don't get stuck traversing mountains for 3 turns...

Instead of routing ALL enemies, you've got to rout 10 enemies (Just 9 to go!)

The enemy will ostensibly have to call off the attack after suffering such heavy casualties to a force less than half its size.

Protect each other and yourselves, you don't want to perma-die and start as a weaker Mutant!

Those Ballroom Blitzers are also rather flimsy with just 17 HP, and they have a penchant for running right at you, even all the way from across the map. So they'll come to you, just prepare to wallop 'em when they do come, and you'll stack 4 easy kills.

Lieutenant Limbo, while being a high value target, still counts as only one kill.
Avoid him to have everyone stay alive easier, or kill him for the juicy +2 Stat Points at the end of the mission.
Some intel on this absolute beast of a limbo-man: He's got 35HP and a 1d16 basic attack that attacks all directions in Range 1. Yep, you read that right. And his special move, Limbo-Tango, auto-applies both namesake Dances to a Mutant Mosher within Range 5, with no chance of Resisting.

>>5275083
I knew that would happen, that's my fault and also kind of a limitation of the software I was using, they really limit terrain colors for the free version. Your posted move is still valid, though.
>>
>>5275084
Poison Wave technically has infinite range and applies to all enemies.
If you use it once to prevent Limboing, no enemy can apply Limboing to any Mutant Mosher on the next phase. You also get +1 Move that turn.
If you use it twice to prevent Limboing AND Tangoing, those Dances CANNOT be inflicted on any Mutant Mosher next phase no matter what. You also get +2 Move that turn.
>>
>>5275084
You could even act as a dance jammer by foregoing attacks, and just using Poison Wace twice every turn to prevent Lt. Limbo from ever applying Limbo or Tango to anyone. He can still pack a wallop with his attack dice, don't forget that, though. And his buddies can deal damage and infect you with other dances, too, so don't forget about them.

The Iron Boot and Cristal head away from the scary Haka Hulk-protected Jungle Jam, and venture into a Misty Mountain hop. The vet stomps away, puncturing the shell and the lung of the nearby. Cristal protects the entire squad by emitting two distinct types of toxic crystal reptile pheromones!! No would ever think of beginning to HEADBANG or FINGERSNAP next turn! Fugettabouttit!

The powerful Disco Foreteller knew that standing in place and following the doctrine of ULTRACORE would lead her/him(???) to victory. Xim/xer actually gets so cocky as to think they can sway an enemy to the Mutant Mosher side, and it almost works, until the remaining Breaktrancer sees that Seneca is all alone at the end of a Rocky Road, and she's easy picking if the main army decides to swoop in on her.

The Sour Grapes Humorless Bard (did I mention he's a traitor, also?) swoops in and takes all the credit for defeating a Boom-Boxer after Lightning Larry obviously put it most of the work, putting everything on the line to mildly shock his foe into a defeat. He'll be at a disadvantage should any dastardly dancer try to make him join them in their display of decay.

Don't worry about the Jitterbugging, it essentially won't affect you in any way now.

Continue entering your commands as usual, but QM will roll 1d4 for 2 turns, and if it's a 1, QM will control Lightning Larry and choose a wacky action for him to do.

C'mon Bard, Larry is risking his life for you! Help him out!

The Haka Hulk brays and snorts, not the most intelligent creature in the Disco Division.

The Haka Hulk is clearly enticed by Crystalline Riptail's challenge, even though The Iron Boot is still within it's range.

"Despite all my rage, I am still just a rat in a cage!" I can't help but yell out this random lyric while I Riverdance in place like a mental patient.

The Haka Hulk gets ready to sidestep Crystalline Riptail. The Iron Boot is too out in the open to avoid the pummeling.

Just so all of our guys don't die. Maybe they will anyway. Fuck, my bad, guys. I'm still learning.

Looks like our best bet to save our friends includes Larry and the Bard focusing on the already weakened Ballroom Blitzer, and perhaps having a new Mutant come in and finish them.

If that happened, the mission would be complete if and when another Mutant were to appear where Seneca died on the Rocky Road and avenged her by slaying that severely maimed Ballroom Blitzer, but we've only got one shot at that... Gotta make it count.

Cristal, it looks like you may be a little too far away to make many meaningful moves, I suggest Special Interactions and/or Poison Waves!

>>5275815
That Ballroom Blitzer should be dead now. Shocked and magnetized to a crisp.

>NEW OBJECTIVE: Survive one more enemy phase, or defeat one more enemy

Studying the map and everyone's abilities, it seems as though it's likely up to new Mutant Moshers (QM, HARDCORE, or a new player) to spawn on the Pink Dinos and kill another goon real quick. That one in the East is particularly vulnerable. Don't forget that you can suggest ranged Mutant Powers for your Mutant.

The Humorless Bard and Crystalline Riptail would be hard pressed to find a way to defeat another goon this turn since the goons nearby are so beefy. They'll need to be extremely creative with Special Interactions to influence the end of this battle, or it's likely that more of our friends will die.

It's up to the Special Interactions of the living, or the fresh Actions of the new Mutant Moshers.

(In the next maps I have written/saved already, I'll go back and reduce enemy density, since it only gets thicker from here. I must admit I expected at least 2-3 more players. I'm not disappointed though, since I'm already fudging up here with 5 players, myself included. I'm grateful I don't have a dozen commands to mess up. I'm also grateful all of you are sticking with the quest so far. I'm sure there are a lot of things that could be ironed out or improved.)

After many hours of fleeing through the Jungle Jam to escape any pursuers, the Mutant Moshers find a sanctuary in the middle of the Jungle. Unlike all the other monkeys in the jungle, the apes inside the sanctuary don't dance or hoot and holler.

"Fur is disgusting... Eyuck. At least they're not flinging their..." -Cristal

The Palewalker wonders aloud how monkeys taste, perhaps paired with roasted brussel sprouts and a chilled red wine, maybe even sangria. This freaks everybody out, even the zen gorillas.

While Lightning Larry continues playing with the chimps, The Humorless Bard, a reject of the Disco Division steps forward in awe, "Incredible... Supreme Commander Tango mentioned such places, but I thought he was telling tall tales..."

The discovery is interrupted by a silence in the jungle, a cessation of all animal noises except for the chorus of loud bugs... Then, screeching feedback spills all over the jungle, making birds fly away and mammals cover their ear holes.

In the distance, Master Sergeant Stanky Legg picks up a microphone and spits: "Yo, suckaz, me and my Dagga Drivers iz finna finnnnnnd youuuu!!! You can't hide from us in these trees forever! Mutant Mosherssssss... Come out and plaaaayyyyyy-ayyyyyy..."

Rolled 11 (1d12)

(rolling Cristal's basic attack on the Eastern Boom-Boxer. Also, her +1 mod turns to +3 since she is in Range 1 now.)

New Tokens:
Palewalker - Purple Devil
Wally of the Whalevoice - Orange Anchor
Sanctuary - Black House (temporary ally)

The Sanctuary is treated as an ally with no moves or actions, and is immune to Dance. It has 33HP and like any ally, we can move through it, but we cannot land on top of it.

And if we can keep it above 0 HP, we'll get a fat bonus.

The real challenge comes in the fact that it's the target of the enemy. They are extremely likely to be aggro towards it instead of a Mosher.

Rewards:
Survive 4 or 5 turns.........+4 Stat Points
Sanctuary Survives.........+3 Stat Points
No casualties...................+1 Stat Point
Defeat Stanky Legg.........+1 Stat Point

The southern Ballroom Blitzer is stuck in another frequency!! He can't move at all!! But the northern Ballroom Blitzer is a track star!! He runs through the northern Cool Waters to strike at the heart of the Sanctuary, but upon seeing the traitorous, ugly mug of The Humorless Bard, he stops short in his stride and strikes out at the Bard!

What a foolish goon, he's still in Cool Waters! His attack die will be halved, not to mention The Bard gets a +10 mod to his already stout Res roll because he's in the Jungle Jam!

Of course he doesn't succumb to such a puerile form of bodily articulation. He's a GENTLEMAN.

You hear Major Sergeant Stanky Legg call out to his men over the loud speakers rigged throughout the Jungle Jam: "Dagga Drivers, hold! Let the other forces wear them down first..."

One lone Dagga Driver doesn't get the message, and looks to make a name for himself, but gets stuck traversing the Misty Mountains in the southeast.

Picking up his slack in east is a Safety Dancer, who moves 6665 and uses his Disco Biscuit Launcher to try to get Cristal Limboing!! That's a huge debuff if it takes hold, and it only gets worse if she is afflicted with a second Dance afterward! The damage kind of just... Tickles...

The other Breaktrancer in the Southwest moves towards the fray, but gets stuck in the Mountains.

It's a similar but reversed story for the Northern Boom-Boxer, who approaches but cannot get in range to throw a claw yet.

Even with Riptail's stellar efforts, it's still insanely difficult to hurt someone while you're Dancing the Limbo!! Still, she bashes the Safety Dancer fiercely! She also blocks off the Eastern entry to the Sanctuary singlehandedly.

"Way to go, Cristal!" Wally waves and says to Crystalline Riptail, but all that comes out is a muffled, nearly inaudible whale scream.

Cristal looks over, flicking her poisonous bio-crystal bangs. "Are you trying to, like, talk to me? Like, ick, what-EVER!!"

My Blast move is going to be on Cooldown for a while, but if enemies cluster up again, I'll set them straight with the help of my god, Spermo!"

Good catch, thank you. I accidentally removed the Tree Obstacles without noticing. I believe you should be in the same hex, but there is a patch of trees or two missing nearby.

(Safety Dancer's earlier attack on Sanctuary is negated as he is out of range. He takes no other action.)

The thick muscles of the tranquil apes have gone slack, and they fumble every single throw. Two traps land in the thick tree lines and the other five land mostly in the Misty Mountains where it is unlikely the enemies will tread through... Oh well! We got this, we didn't need the help anyway. They begin to muster the rest of their traps for a second pass next turn, but is it too little, too late?

The Sanctuary is safe from the North for this turn, there's no need to patch it up with other more pressing matters like the East and Southwest.

As it stands, Cristal is holding off the East all by herself. She's a fucking tank, but she could use some relief. She's also Popping and Locking.
There is a veritable horde of foes marching in from the West. Stanky Legg leads from the back. In the face of this threat, Larry blends the Jitterbug and Popping and Locking, to the great amusement of the enemies.

Can we continue using the terrain to our advantage?
Can we utilize the Popping and Locking Dance against our enemies, or will we reactively try to stop Dancing, and expose Larry and Cristal to attacks?

REMINDER >>5272534
Popping and Locking might prevent your actions, keep that in mind as you choose your movement and actions. QM will roll a secondary set of Dance V. Resist rolls to see if you overcome this strange Dance.

The terrifying sound of Supreme Commander Tango's Boogie Bugle sounds again, cutting through all other sounds - it's another retreat, we're saved!!

Stanky Legg cranks up his amp and grabs his mic again, commanding his men to keep fighting. No!

This is FUGAZI!

The Ballroom Blitzer assaulting the Sanctuary has been dropped to 5 HP, but every other goon and Master Sergeant Stanky Legg are at full health.

Those Ladder Dives proved near-fatal, but now the Dagga Drivers are limited to Range 1 attacks only. (Except the one in the Northeast)

The Sanctuary is severely low on HP, as are Larry and Palewalker, whose real name on his birth certificate is probably... Palewalker.

Wally is at full HP and currently in no danger at all. A little suspicious if you ask me...

There are always more Mutant Moshers, but there's only one Sanctuary! Can we still save it and learn from it? We've already learned so much...

The Boogie Bugle sounds once again.

The enemies falter in their steps and begin mumbling to each other.

"...I dunno about this"
"This is suicide, man!!"
"Commander Tango's gonna skin our hides, man..."
"Should we...?"
"Let's!"

All non-Dagga Driver goons shout "Sayonara, Stanky Legg! Just following orders~!"

"Get back here, you suckas!! If we present the Sanctuary to Tango, we'll be rich beyond our wildest dreams!! Think of the speakers, gold chains and hairspray we could buy!!"

Palewalker YEETS the Dagga Driver into one of the monkey's traps - smart work! By the time the mission is over, that enemy won't be in range to attack anyone!

They're not having any of it, they're retreating to the sound of Supreme Commander Tango's Boogie Bugle. The Dagga Drivers remain.
The Ballroom Blitzer in the center is too entranced to hear the call, and is intent on attacking the Sanctuary. He's got a 25% chance of destroying it!! Whaleboy couldn't stop him!!

It's rumored that The Humorless Bard was supposed to become Master Sergeant and take command of the Dagga Drivers. He was so angered when he was kicked out of the Disco Division, only to be replaced with Stanky Legg. He stops his assault on the Ballroom Blitzer prematurely to rage against the man that stole his promotion.

"I remember you, sucka! You couldn't even do a Texas Two-Step!! You'll never be part of the Disco Division!"

"I don't want to be around you buffoons anymore. I want to KILL YOU!!"

"This means war, nigga!"

The Boom-Boxer, Safety Dancer, Breaktrancer and Ballroom Blitzer around Stanky Legg all flee to the sound of the Boogie Bugle.

Stanky Legg berates them: "You fuckin' cowards!!!!"

(Guys, I think Larry is dead. I'll just say he moved 4, rolled a Rest for himself and helped us out by hitting the enemies with a Photon Flashbang, halving the Dagga Driver and Ballroom Blitzer rolls next turn, then moved back up direction 1 to block off the baddies. Thanks, Larry!)

Y'know... with the Sanctuary at 9HP, there's no way that Ballroom Blitzer's 1d8 attacks could bring it down on their own on this last turn. Could be better to just ignore him if we know the rest of the perimeter is sealed up.

(Sorry for the messy map, it's easier to manipulate text and some things in Paint rather than free-version Hexographer.)

All Popping and Locking expires this turn, freeing Wally, Cristal and Larry to move freely again, but exposing them to attacks once again for the final Disco Division phase. Be warned.
(Also don't worry about Dancing next turn, just focus on the enemies' damage potential.)

Major Sergeant Stanky Legg bellows on his sound system: "The terrorism will NOT stop! It's added up to an extreme amount!! No matter how you beg, we shall not cease!"

"Grr..." Wally tries to growl but it's more of a whale abortion noise.

All of a sudden, the Boogie Bugle plays a new tune. Now, even the Dagga Drivers are frightened.

(Skipping actual step-by-step map updates for this last turn, since the mission ends after this round of enemy attacks. Also currently re-working the Final Map, which will likely feature all of the previous Disco Division leaders we don't squash. Potato Salad is done for, but Stanky Legg and Lt. Limbo may make their reappearances.)

Lightning Larry is staring blankly forward, entranced and unable to move. Has all the Dancing fried his circuits?
All we hear on the airwaves from Larry is... Static...

Since Wally doesn't have the power to defeat the Dagga Diver in the north, he just blocks off the exit, not even healing because he knows the Dagga Driver has no potential to defeat his 15HP.

With Crystalline Shell, Cristal survives her attacks as well.

Palewalker similarly holds his own against his foe, and guards the Sanctuary from the Blitzer.

Stanky Legg is completely stymied by his own minions and the clever positioning of the Mutant Moshers!!

The only foe that gets a meaningful attack in before fleeing (that has any real potential) is the Western Dagga Driver, who can kill Larry with a crit only... Hah, fat chance!

Larry? Stop playing with the cute monkeys, we're in battle!!

LARRY!!!! PUT THE CHIMP DOWN, LARRY, WATCH OUTTTT!!!!

...

RIP Larry... May he Limbo in the afterlife, if that is what his spirit wishes to do now.

Within less than a minute after savaging That One Static Electricity Guy, the entire Disco Division is nowhere to be seen or heard, but their sweaty smell lingers. As do the corpses of a few Disco Division goons, some tranquil apes, and Lightning Larry...

The Sanctuary survives. An ominous silence rings throughout the Jungle Jam, until a heart-stopping bestial roar is heard!

Too little, too late (for now), the tranquil apes decide to forego their pacifistic ways in order to spread peace and tranquility against the rampant destruction and booty-popping that the Disco Division represents. They spread throughout the Jungle Jam, even though the foe has already fled.

They regroup once they are sure the Sanctuary is secure, then tend to our wounds.

Speed, indeed, is not in need (especially for you). Other Mutants may consider another point or two in Speed, but with the boost I'm about to grant, they will probably want to invest elsewhere. If you want to change your upgrades again, feel free.

>>5279809
!!!!!CRITICAL INFORMATION!!!!!
ALL PLAYERS WILL GET +2 MOVE FOR THE LAST TWO MAPS...
This is mainly due to the larger maps in the last two mission.

I'll likely try to avoid swapping up too many more stats, and will announce when I do so.

In addition to the fixes I'm doing to the maps now (mostly reducing enemy numbers), I plan on throwing in 2-3 NPC allies for these last battles. They'll be less capable than the Mutant Moshers but still have an ability or two, and of course they'll offer more targets for the enemy to choose from.

Mission 3 Map dropping in approx. 1 hour.

OBJECTIVE: ESCAPE!!!!! Have ONE character end their turn on one of the two purple hexes with the gold stars.

Tbh the fluff is more interesting than the mechanics to me. I was glossing over hard because I was really trying to avoid updating the map. The software isn't that hard to use but I still wish it was quicker. Terrible excuses, but the truth.

Sorry. I realize text doesn't convey emotions or tone well, but I do sincerely apologize.
I think the only way to properly apologize is through an original invention and declaration of apology.

Perhaps a song?

Ahem.

"Jungle Jelly"

To The Bard of No Humor,
It is less than just a rumor,
The QM has been known to be a tumor,
but at least he is no coomer.

Accept my apology,
If you would, please, most kindly,
I am trying to assure you,
It did not originate from my heinie

Perhaps a new song together we could Croon,
Underneath a Revolting Refrain-lit moon?

Whale torture noises are emitted instead of a poem.

Lol, it's ok, I accept your apology. Nice song btw, I definitely appreciate all the effort you put in, it often gets a laugh out of me. I'm not that miffed about it, I just am adamant about pointing out when rules aren't followed, and get over-excited about games I play.

Also, the balance isn't all so terrible depending on how you lay out the missions and set up the environment. Yes, how it was set up for what we played so far was... difficult, but difficult can work sometimes. At least at this point you have some good experience to work with to make things better. This past mission already was much better than the previous one.

After communing with the tranquil apes, they give you the exact co-ordinates of Supreme Commander Tango's hideout deep in the mountains. Though they are a pacifistic tribe of apes, they tried approaching to plea to Tango that he stops polluting the water supply, but the patches of Disco Inferno and Imprisoning Darkness >>5274992 scared them off of continuing their mission.

At least there's no pesky Misty Mountains to slow our movements...

To reach Tango, you must first pass the Crag Crater, patrolled by his Major General... Monkey Bravo, an unruly Dancing ape.

The tranquil apes somehow instruct you that you don't need to fight your way through the crater, just Escape! (Have one character end their turn on a purple hex with a gold star.)

While most apes are still generally pacifistic, and others must stay behind to continue guarding the Sanctuary, they provide three brave BLUE TANK apes to follow you into this final battle. All 3 have the same stats and abilities:

>Blue Tank Ape (NPC allies)
21 HP| 9 Move | Resist 500 (special training) | 1d10 basic attack
Fling, Cooldown 0. Basic attack with a -2 mod in Range 3.
DUR: 2, STR: 5, MAG: 0, SPD: 8, CHA: 0

Blue Tank Apes are highly mobile and resist all Dances, but can only use one basic attack, Fling, or Rest per turn. They cannot activate Special Interactions.

An ape leader beats his chest and ooks and eeks and squeals, then pisses all over his own hands with a smile.

Wally... understands!! He translates: "He's saying... Thank you for saving us... Take these three soldiers... Good luck on your mission... Then he just peed all over himself for pleasure."

But all that comes out of Wally's blowhole is the sound of a whale fetus and a quart of Clamato being spun around in a blender on max speed.

Between the ape and whaleboy trying to communicate with them, no Mutant Mosher knows what the fuck is going on.

But they have a good idea of what they need to do.

>MISSION 3 OBJECTIVE: ESCAPE!!!!! (One character must end their turn on a purple tile/gold star hex.)
Rewards:
Escape!!!...............................+3 Stat Points
Enemy dispatched................+1 Stat Point each
NPC ally (Ape) survives........+1 Stat Point each

The flung poop merely floats down the river of cool water, gently heading downstream towards Monkey Bravo.

Bravo has no where to turn, the turd is on a collision course to smack him right in the chest... He panics!

The our beloved and deformed fearless heroes advance quickly down the craggy crater, The Humorless Bard taking quick refuge behind a jagged mountain to cast his Bard spells.

In the north passes, Palewalker leads the apes in a hammer-and-anvil maneuver against unsuspecting crater guards.

(Forgot Palewalker in image, lol...)

Okay, I was fighting it earlier but now I've accepted I can't run the enemy phase in time before I gotta go. Should only delay me an hour or two, so I should still be in the 12-18 hours I predicted this update would drop. Sorry!

Before I go, let's see if Ape C can withstand Bravo's basic attack!!

He won't be subject to the Headbanging it usually induces, but the damage potential of this guy is off the charts!!!

Bravo's Special Attack isn't half this powerful, but he can crank out 1d25 damage every turn with his Basic Attack!

Luckily, he's only got 38HP, rather flimsy for a second-in-command to the Supreme Commander....

Reject Society actually gave me +50 Resist mod I forgot about, meaning no Finger Snapping for Wally

The Southwestern Ballroom Blitzer runs into the fray, but can't make an attack this turn, unlike his brother from the South Central that The Humorless Bard was attacking, he'd like to retaliate, but that crag pass looks a little too thin for even him to squeeze through.

He instead sets his sights on Ape C who just shat on his boss! Take this!

(I redirected Rarified Past on the Safety Dancer since the Boom-Boxer was out of range, only the status heal is unlimited range)

The enemy has sounded the alarms, but the others just Dance to it, unalert to the intruders known as... You. The Mutant Moshers.

So far, only a few enemies have actually seen or heard of our presence in Crag Crater, and the team manages to successfully stand their ground against the Dancing Menace.

If you need a heal, hit the Health Patches scattered across the crag! Avoid the Disco Inferno tiles at all costs, though, they'll chew up 3 HP per turn! And those Imprisoning Darkness tiles... Everyone knows it's easier to succumb to Dance when you think no one is looking! Like when you're in the Dark!

We can't get caught up in a drawn out fight, we need to keep Escaping!

Then again, striking down Monkey Bravo and some of Tango's most trusted guards would be a huge blow to the Disco Division... Once his Frequency is cleared of static, he'll probably relentlessly pursue us, and he's STRONG...

Cristal only Dances one turn. (Int. Freestyle)
Wally is still dancing the Jitterbug for one more turn.

The enemy is going to try to close in on us. We've gotta keep fighting quickly!

Reach that Escape Exit!!

Oh no, it's blocked off by a Haka Hulk and a pair off Boom-Boxers!!

Those guys pack serious punches!!

In the back of the pack, Monkey Bravo dances towards us. Watch out, fellas!!

"Wanna give us a hand with the Dancing, this time, Bard? Or if you think we can tough it out, that's fine, too." Wally tries to say, but the low frequencies are too low for anyone to hear but Palewalker, who kindly asks Wally to stop, as Palewalker's ears are now bleeding.

Also, feel free to utilize the Apes again, everyone, they're clustered up in the center now, but they've got a huge 9 Move, a basic attack and a Range 3 attack.

Wait, shouldn't this Blitzer near us be dead? I rolled an 11 on my attack against him, and that plus Wally's attack should have killed him. And even if it didn't kill him, my attack was Wicked Jeer, so it shouldn't have hit Cristal. Where did the "5 HP left" even come from?

Cristal rests up for the cluster of foes ahead and in pursuit, honed and focused on the mission.

Wally fights invisible ninjas. It seems like he thinks he's winning.

In the rearguard, Palewalker pummels Monkey Bravo so hard, they both shit themselves in terror.

The enemy leader is at 10HP.

Monkey Bravo is ripe and furious, and perhaps just as powerful as Palewalker!

Here he comes!!!

...How anticlimactic, The Humorless Bard slips out of Bravo's 6 Move, and Palewalker has cleverly ditched him deep in the Cool Waters!!

...But something's watching Palewalker. He can feel it.

A lone Dagga Driver stalks him silently through the water, 8ft. steel ladder in hand.

In the North...

Apes B and C tear the last Ballroom Blitzer in opposite directions.

The record scratches as the spine snaps.

Ape A follows his brothers and softens up the lone Boom-Boxer with a direct basic attack! He then runs to the front of the fore, protecting Wally so he can slay the last invisible ninja.

The furthest Ape, B, sits in front of Palewalker near the natural geyser fountain to protect him, and create a chokepoint where his enemies will have to attack with halved offense rolls.

Ape C runs all the way around and boxes in the Breaktrancer so no one can break through that point, either.
>>
Rolled 1 (1d4)

In response, the Breaktrancer smacks him with a half-powered B-Boy Bonk. The injured Ape mocks his weakness and beats his chest. The Breaktrancer retreats to let his other buddies in.

The Western Dagga Driver phases back in to frequency, but is too tired to move.

The one who replaces the Breaktrancer is none other than the Boom-Boxer who was bitch-slapped by Ape A last turn...
>>
Rolled 1 (1d6)

The Boom-Boxer is confused as to why Ape A isn't Headbanging, how can he be so tranquil? He still bops him on the head with his ghetto blaster.

The Haka Hulk is going for Ape A. Luckily, his might is halved by the Cool Waters. Palewalker looks over Ape A's shoulder as it defends from the Hulk's basic attack.

The North/Northwestern guards are completely oblivious to all the fighting in the south.

The Jive Turkey who peeked in at the group of 3 serial-killer-calm apes running through his partners-in-crime at lightning speed decided it was none of his business. Cowardly, but smart. He just wants to listen to his tunes and dance, desu senpai.

On the other side of the raucous coin, the Boom Boxers in the Southwest are murderous and triggered!! Here they come!! One for Cristal, and the second for Ape!

Cristal's bio-toxic diamond shell is tickled by the pitiful attempts of the lobsterman.

That IS a catchy tune, though...

Cristal starts stamping her feet slightly more than she normally does...

Even if Cristal starts Headbanging, she'll still be able to use her STR-based attack dice, but if she rolls a 1-3, it'll do 0 damage!

DARKNESS. IMPRISONING ME. ALL THAT I SEE. ABSOLUTE HORROR. I CANNOT LIVE. I CANNOT DIE.

Imprisoning Darkness creeps in over Crag Crater, spreading towards the crew with uncanny speed...

Tango must know you're coming. But it's too late for him. He will be brought to justice.

The Northern goons are nearly untouched.

The Dagga Driver in the East backs is obsessed with his mark, Paledriver, but he'll take an Ape, too. He could also switch up and assist the beleaguered Boss Bravo. It would be a damned shame if Bravo were to... Retreat from his own post next turn?

These Disco Division boys have no honor, they won't go down with their own sinking ship. We gotta make sure Major General Monkey Bravo stays put on this battlefield. Forever.

If we don't, he'll just be back to cause Port Polka more trouble in the future.

Command the apes as you wish. Their current plan is to keep serving as meatshields and attackers, but they do have Rest capabilities as well. Or you could send them anywhere you like.

Retreat isn't an option, we've got to punch through their defenses.

The Boom-Boxers are by no means flimsy but we only really need to take one of them out to get through.

Taking down that Haka Hulk guard is going to be like demolishing a brick house.

Monkey Bravo has been defeated!!!!!!!!!!

The Southeastern passage is... Almost quiet.

Ahhhhhh. It feels good. But we can't stop before Tango is brought to mutated justice.

The highly mobile Apes take their turns.

Ape A smacks the lower Boom-Boxer with a basic attack, then Moves 32 to block off the enemies in the Cool Waters to the North.

Ape B swoops in 5556, hits a basic attack on the lower Boom-Boxer again, then joins Ape A on the other Rocky Road tile (Move 332) to block off the coming enemies in the Cool Waters. They are confident they can hold for at least 1 turn.

Ape C storms down to Ape A's old position and hits another basic attack on the same goon. Ape C then retreats 44, out of everyone's way.

The retarded Apes at the Hyundai dealership don't know how to fix a fucking hatchback to save their fucking worthless lives, even if it's just been in their shop for over a month, so I'm stuck afk for a few more hours in the fucking mall parking lot. It's so fucking hot, boys.

I was stuck in that parking lot for almost 4 and a half hours...

Probably karma or something but god damn, I really want to squeeze someone's neck until their eyes pop out. How hard is it to direct a fucking tow truck to a mall? Apparently fucking impossible for the lackeys at AAA.

I, uhh... Need a little break. Sorry. Update will drop sometime tonight.

After escaping Crag Crater, there is only one map left!!

...The final showdown with Supreme Commander Tango!

We'll have a boatload of stat points to spend before we face him too (like 15!!) - we'll finally able to reach our maximum potential, reaching new plateaus never before thought possible!

Rolled 4 (1d4)

The pursuing Dagga Driver sees an enemy in range, finally. Unfortunately for him, it's The Humorless Bard who sternly guards the whole group from the back - he's the only foe in range. The Apes to The Bard's North protect him, and he could even walk off a critical Ladder Dive.

The Eastern Dagga Driver makes the smart decision and runs off to dance another day, not knowing that he could have teamed up with the Western Dagga Driver.

However, the enemy already seems to know they are in a losing battle, having failed Tango's orders to guard Crag Crater.

Stanky Legg's men both flee.

However, the rest of the Northern cluster do not relent. First is the weakened Breaktrancer's attack on Ape B.

The remaining scuffed-up Boom-Boxer flees rather than fights, knowing he has no chance of defeating Ape A, but he's still in range if we have the gusto to hunt him down.

We've finally got our chance to escape, we just have to blast through this 14/34HP Haka Hulk and end our turn on the Star!

Think of this as a bonus round, let's see if we can stack up a few more bodies after we secure our escape!!

Apes A and B pick up the still-fighting Wally and Bard over their shoulders, and take them to the exit.

Palewalker collects teeth while Cristal's bio-shell absorbs more genetic material to study and modify.

Ape C finds a pretty flower to put behind her ear while she fights.

The Apes tell us Peak Polka is as far as they've come, but now that the Mutant Moshers are here, they feel they have the power to bring down Tango and bring back peace and quiet.

We think that's what simultaneously jacking off and shitting means in the Ape language.

Wally wants to offer a counterpoint, but the music is getting too loud to speak over...

No plan is needed, anyway.

The Mutant Moshers make their final stand against distasteful music-listening hours and volumes.

Unnatural dark clouds fill the sky, not filled with rain but with sound... The clouds!! They must be the source of the music!!

No wonder the apes were pointing at the sky so much. We'll have to get a translator in the future when we have a nice, cold, QUIET, pint with these lads back in Port Polka.

If we don't stop Tango here and now and take back the radio tower he's posted up at, the Disco Division will only continue to grow in numbers and power. We can't fail Port Polka, or the world.

Heading over the last hill, the team sees a radio tower glowing iridescent, with a large disco ball draped from it.

The land is drenched in darkness, and feverishly hot areas break through the ground, like Crag Crater, but this time, it's going to be unavoidable... Watch your step. (Terrain Chart: >>5274992)

Tango laughs and presumably dances far off in the distance as his evil radio-clouds shoot out of his Flower-Power, Sucka-Don't-Be-Sour, Bumpin', Jammin', Got-The-Speakers-Slammin', Man-Of-The-Hour's Radio Tower. (FPSDBSBJGTSSMOTHRT)

Enemies of all types dance in every manner imaginable, celebrating the night like true fiends. It's absolutely shambolic.

They haven't seen us yet.

The Disco Division's long-range soldier gets bonked rightly, and bobs down in the water, before bobbing back up!!

It looks like it would've been really painful if his movements weren't so sluggish from being in Cool Water!! Drats!!

He's boxed in, now, though, and can't weave in and out of the terrain for more powerful attacks.

Not to mention, Cool Waters is the most protective terrain in the area, those Disco Inferno and Imprisoning Darkness tiles look scawy.

Rolled 5, 9, 9 = 23 (3d10)

Unfortunately, The Bard's Showtime Staunchness actually didn't heal his status effects, only gave him +8HP. And Rarified Past can only heal one status effect at a time. We'll just stick with Wally as the target. The Bard Dances the night away.

The tranquil Apes are on the move! They close in on the enemy and pound away with tranquil fists!!

Ape A splits left to divert the enemy's attention. He skirts the forest, and ambushes the central, full HP Haka Hulk!

Rolled 1 (1d3)

The remaining enemies in the South are perishing quicker than grapes on the vine.

Before we can reap their demise, they strike!!

The impotent Safety Dancer launches his basic ranged attack at Ape C!!
>>
Rolled 18, 17 = 35 (2d20)

Next comes the severely weakened Haka Hulk, left at only 5 HP. He stands in place and performs a Shaka-Laka-Haka!! Both Ape C and Cristal are damaged, but only Cristal needs to worry about Resisting the Headbanging!!
>>
Rolled 4 (1d9)

The Southern Jive Turkey hangs on with 1HP but he aims desperately to end The Humorless Bard, who made him look really uncool!

He can't make him Dance anymore than 2 Dances at a time, this is a damage-based vendetta! Arrivederci!!

Rolled 19 (1d20)

The lower Haka Hulk also retreats 1111.

The Southern Jive Turkey just hangs around, hampering The Bard's eastward movements, intending to leave him in Darkness or the Inferno.

The Northern Haka Hulk with 29 HP remaining runs up to Ape B and Wally and tries to get them to Headbang!! Another Shaka-Laka-Haka!!!!!

Wally won't Headbang, but will he start breaking into an interpretive freestyle??
>>
Rolled 1, 4 = 5 (2d8)

*Due to Jitterbugging, Wally actually does succumb to Headbanging for one turn. Woops. Since he can't use STR dice and he can't use MAG dice... He can't use basic attacks!!! It may be time to call on his lord again...

Here comes the damage from the Ballroom Blitzers.

1st - Ape A
2nd - Wally
>>
Rolled 6 (1d6)

Ending the onslaught is the East-Central Safety Dancer launching a basic attack at Ape A.

The battlefield only gets louder, despite the Mutant Moshers dispatching goons left and right.

Oh, no!! Some familiar faces have returned!!

Stanky Legg and one of his Dagga Drivers have returned to hunt you down and reclaim their now-disgraced status in the Disco Division!!

On top of that, the stalwart Lt. Limbo has returned with one of his nimble Ballroom Blitzers!!

They're gonna come for us!

Mutant Moshers, regroup!!!!!

_

Shifting through crags of Peak Polka, Wally caught a glimpse of Supreme Commander Tango!! He's HUUUUGE, with a back like a Dorito, an outfit like a martian or KISS drummer, and extremely sexually suggestive disco dance moves that would make Cristal drip bio-crystals if she looked him in the crotch too long!!

>FINAL BOSS:
Supreme Commander Tango - 58HP
>MINI BOSSES:
Lieutenant Limbo - 30HP (Icon - Campfire)
Master Sergeant Stanky Legg - 30HP (Icon - Red Palm Tree)

Wally and Ape B are in a bad spot!! Ape C is hanging on by a thread!! Our Southern forces aren't exactly having a field day, either!

Disco Division goons in the middle are weak, but they have full-winded reinforcements backing them up from the North and South!!

>Keep avoiding the Disco Inferno tiles, keep fighting! Don't get crunched!!

It's a slaughter in Peak Polka!!

Palewalker, Crystalline Riptail, and The Humorless Bard rack up four kills this round!

Ape A slaps the remaining Haka Hulk (1st roll) and tries to guard Ape B. move 33222

Ape C moves 666116 and joins The Bard in the Darkness to Rest (2nd roll)

Ape B... You've served us well. We'll write songs about you (that are impossible to Dance to).

Here comes the enemy!!

...Ouch!! Palewalker loses 3HP from the Disco Inferno under his feet!

>Quotient Phase
>>
Rolled 1, 2, 3 = 6 (3d6)

The entire gaggle of goons and disgraced Mini-Bosses struggle to catch up to our forces, unable to land a single hit. Lt. Limbo and Stanky Legg seem to be begrudgingly working together, trying to close in on Palewalker, Ape C and The Humorless Bard around a jutting crag.

1st roll - Ape B tries to survive against a few more attacks...
2nd roll - Ape A takes one to the furry chin and keeps fighting
3rd roll - Southeast targets Palewalker - "yeah, the Bard is obnoxious, but that guy boxed me in for 2 turns!! Why isn't he Dancing yet? Or even a lil' bloody? Time to change that!!"

The North-central Ballroom Blitzer is just in range to... Come after The Humorless Bard!!!! You shouldn't've said all those slurs and tried to pass it off as wit!!

Rolled 5 (1d9)

Big fucky wucky: Bard is already dancing two dances. Including Finger Snapping, which means he was unable to kill the Jive Turkey with his pit-iful roll of 1. He still had the juice to OHKO the other goon, though.

The Jive Turkey with 1HP comes back for another attack on The Bard!! His last wish in this world is to see you die!!!
>>
Rolled 13 (1d108)

Palewalker still needs to Resist the Dance, though!! It's powerful!!! Can he do it?? He didn't even bring the right shoes for Dancing!!!
>>
Rolled 1 + 99999999999 (1d1 + 99999999999)

Palewalker reluctantly starts grooving to the Radio Clouds with a distracting but rhythmic snap of his paper-white fingers for 2 turns.

_________________________________________________

...Every Cinderella story must come to an ending.
The carriage turns back to an onion...
The tank turns back into a fallen ape...

The Boom-Boxers move in a pincher maneuver.

The Western one is out of range...

But the Eastern one walks right up to the 1HP Ape B...

And plunges his big meaty claw right through his face. He pulls his hammerclaw out and boasts with a booty-shaking Dance as arterial blood sprays squirt from the gaping hole in our friend's head.

They're closing in on us again, but this does appear to be every last soldier the Disco Division could muster... No other Mutant Moshers have answered the sky signal, maybe Lightning Larry forgot to plug it into the socket?

We fight with what we've got - ourselves!!

We just gotta take down Supreme Commander Tango to stop the music, and the rest of the Disco Division will stop their Dancing!! Probably!

Aside from Palewalker, everyone's in pretty rough condition. Take some time to regroup and Rest if you need to.

The goons seem to be crowding around the Healing Patches, unfortunately. It may be risky to approach.

With the passing of their comrade, Apes A and C are becoming less tranquil... Their basic attack/Rest dice has been raised to 1d15!! They'll still follow your commands, for now...

The bullied Safety Dancer is vigilant, and deftly dodges the Fling.

Even though he's in a groove, he's on the move!! Here he comes, along with his pissed off brethren in the north!!

They all prep their Disco Biscuit Launchers, easily the most complicated tech in the Disco Division other than Tango's FPSDBSBJGTSSMOTHRT.

These Disco Biscuits tickle when they hit us, and they taste a little bitter...

Woah...

WOAH.

Anyway, Cristal tries her best to Resist!! It'll be tough!!!
>>
Rolled 17 (1d18)

The Dagga Driver drives North, but his leader Stanky Legg is frozen in place!! Will he be unable to attack the Mutant Moshers again? Perhaps it was a stroke of fate that he somehow got that position from under the nose of the far-more competent Humorless Bard.

It's probably his sick ass Dance moves on the battlefield dancefloor, which he can't even utilize right now.

Lt. Limbo huffs and puffs, trying to close in on the good guys for a mighty attack.

Despite the relentless assault on the mutated freak, Wally firmly stands his ground and wipes his baleen filters of blood.

Lt. Limbo and Msgt. Stanky Legg approach quickly, pissed off they have been unable to reach out and touch you!

We may want to think about ditching the Minibosses before they get too close!!

Then again... What would happen if we defeated them before fighting Tango?

One of them is already reduced below half HP... Hmm...

We're still severely outnumbered!!

Oh no... On top of that, the Imprisoning Darkness is creeping in again from the South!! Soon we won't have any refuge!!

Supreme Commander Tango electronically cackles over the music and takes out his biggest ghetto blaster ever and cranks up the tunes!!! Wally and Cristal can't help but groove along!!!

Wait... Supreme Commander Tango is a... ROBOT?!?!? No wait, there's clearly a man's face under the helmet - he's a cyborg!! No wonder the constant Dancing never wears him out - his body is assisted by mechanical servos and gasoline engines!!

In a chain reaction, one of two remaining power lines from the iridescent radio tower snaps and falls down!! It slithers and wriggles until it joins two previously fallen and currently sizzling power lines. Four power lines, three already snapped...

Some of the clouds clear up overhead, the music dies down and the Imprisoning Darkness slows its creep - just a little!

Some mechanical grinding and locking sounds are heard to the North, as if from an abrupt stop. Is that the FPSDBSBJGTSSMOTHRT or...?

In the distance, we hear Tango is capable of more than just villainous cackling; his robotic frame lets out a frustrated electronic groan which quickly gives rise to an outright primal scream!!

We must've done something to anger him!!

>>
Rolled 14 (1d20)

Ape A is the only thing standing in between Stanky Legg and Palewalker.

He thinks he's doing Palewalker a favor, but his Ape brain doesn't understand the disparity in HP and the power of Stanky Legg. Right when it clicks, Stanky Legg hits Ape A with his signature move - Do It To 'Em!

This move has no Cooldown and has a high damage potential, making it super deadly!!

On top of that, if Ape A was already Dancing, he would take double damage from this move!!

Will he survive?? Ape C nervously chomps at her fingernails...
>>
Rolled 6 (1d12)

Ape A falls.
Rest in peace, warrior.

Ape C is fired up, but will she survive her own assault from the nearby Boom-Boxer??

...

The Northeastern passage is completely choked with full HP foes, better think of a way around.
Or is fighting them in a narrow passage better than finding flanks and running around in the open?
>>
Rolled 2 (1d12)

Ape C remains standing at 3 HP. But she's not the same anymore. She's not tranquil at all... She's on a rampage!! We can't control her!!! (Ape C is uncontrollable but her basic attack die has risen to 1d20)

The remaining Dagga Driver runs up on Cristal and hits her with a basic attack.

Don't start Limboing now, Cristal, that'll be a HUGE distraction!! Plus, you just shook off the Interpretive Freestlying, aren't your bio-crystals getting clogged with sweat?
>>
Rolled 4, 5 = 9 (2d6)

Safety Dancers launch their attacks at Cristal (1st roll) and Wally (2nd roll)

Will Wally bite the dust? Or continue his crooning crusade? (dies on 5/6)
>>
Rolled 84, 51 = 135 (2d100)

Wally has fallen...
(QM will create a new Mutant with 30 stat points and deploy on any tile next turn)

To round out the turn, the nearest Breaktrancer also clogs up the central passage with the Safety Dancer.

Let's see if Cristal is the dancing type:
1 Limbo
2 Finger Snapping

Limbo - 2 turns
Finger Snap - 1 turn

>>5272534
>Limboing if paired with Finger Snapping produces a -11 mod
>After Fing Snap expires, it's still a -6 mod for one more turn

We can't let Cristal suffer through that!! She won't even be able to Rest properly if she's Dancing like a drunken, chicken-slaughtering, Haitian voodoo priest!! I can see down her top, though... Score!!!

Maybe the new mysterious Mutant Mosher will have something that can help...? Maybe not, though!!

All enemies are at full HP.

We tried so hard, and got so far... But in the end, will it even matter?

...NO!!!! Don't succumb to the Darkness and the Inferno!! We've got to stop this!!
For Lightning Larry, The Iron Boot, Iron Mom, Seneca the Disco Foreteller and Wally of the Whalevoice!!
Don't let their deaths be for naught!! Bring serenity and reason back to Port Polka!!

The Southern field is quieting down.

The North is still crawling with minions and shooting noise pollution so loud that even Bon Scott would have to say "please shut that shit the fuck off."

There's a gap in the Northwest passage. Should we exploit it now, or regroup first?

The pursuing enemies have been thinned, but the deadly disgrace known as Stanky Legg is still lurking in the Jungle Jam, looking for his next victim. He's dreaded up like the predator in Vietfuckingnam, all he needs is the infrared heat vision and shoulder-mounted missile launcher.

Don't let him take another mark.

The Imprisoning Darkness swirls in an odd, inanimate dance of its own, not sure if it's coming or going. How peculiar...

Supreme Commander Tango dances alone, menacingly, in front of the rainbow-steel radio tower, still pumping his jams through the broadcast channels. After the devastation we've been laying upon his Disco Division, Supreme Commander Tango has very few goons left to defend him.

We've got our work cut out for us. Let's put our mutated noses to the grindstone.

The Mutant Mosher Motto? "You can mutate my body, but you'll never mutilate my spirit!"

>Show 'em we mean business!! Peak Polka is ours if we want it bad enough!!

(Was that not powerful enough because I keep overusing exclamation points? Let me try this...)

>>>>>>>Show 'em we mean business!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Peak Polka is ours if we want it bad enough!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The Mutant Mosher reinforcement will arrive and take his/her turn in a few hours, it's up to you if you want to wait to see what s/he brings to the table, or if you want to act on your own. Ape C isn't in the mood for suggestions any more, but the new Mutant Mosher can lend a hand if you tell him the plan.

The next Disco Division Phase comes in ~12-16 hours.

I'll likely roll for initiative for the goons again, similar to here >>5288585

Tango barks at the remaining Breaktrancer in the corner: "Hey!! Don't just Dance in place, get in there and fight for your Supreme Commander!!"

He does so, with gusto.

To round off the turn, the last Jive Turkey in the universe runs in and does his best to drive a wedge between the Mutant Moshers, and end the 2HP Ape C...

____________________________

The Crusty Bubbler's icon is an orange Cannon.
____________________________

The Humorless Bard easily avoids vulgar movements like the ones it takes to Headbang, so it's no surprise he Resists the Dance. He is, however, in dire straits, with less than 25% of his HP. Not to mention, he's in the thick off the fight. (Apologies for cutting off the bottom row of Jungle Jam hexes. You can still use those tiles if you need to.)

The Imprisoning Darkness has stopped spreading, but Tango maintains his control of the environment and Disco Division Dancers closest to him. He refuses to move from his malfunctioning radio tower. We'll have to chase him down on his turf and his terms.

There's a gaggle of goons in the center of Peak Polka. We don't need to finish them all off if we can take down Tango quickly, but they block some of our paths, and will surely pursue us into the Darkness and Inferno ahead, which will rob us of our natural defenses.

What do we do? The tranquil apes back at the Sanctuary can't guide us now, and all their willing warriors have been slain...

No reinforcements are coming for either side.
The enemy outnumbers us two to one.
The fate of the universe is clearly on the line.

We must look within for our own unique strength, which we have in spades.
That was obviously the message of this quest the whole time.

Akkkssshuallyyyyy, if you don't count dirty cheating fucks, like Wally of the Whalevoice, you are the only character who can heal twice in a turn (once every three turns, lol)!

Plus, you have the ranged basic attack, and the handsome green grape icon, and-

And, and, and...

Nah, you're right, that move is an abortion.

Sorry~~~

______________

Palewalker leaves the Jive Turkey strutting and gobbling in place in his blue suede shoes, a hole in his chest, barely breathing. Palewalker keeps running into position and chanting a foreign incantation...

The Humorless Bard, with his typical dour expression, steps in and (mercifully?)(joyfully?)(blankly?) slays the last of a strange breed after absorbing its performer's essence.

Crystal stays on the Health Patches in preparation for the final Showdown with Tango. Just as she tries to rest and wipe The Crusty Bubbler's filth off her mouth, the nearby Safety Dancer comes back into Frequency and spooks Cristal!! She responds by clawing it to DEATH and then putting up her Crystalline Shell.

Palewalker is about to unleash his spell from the Cool Waters in front of the Haka Hulk. Before he does, he mumbles to himself... "Should I use 440 hertz or 432 hertz? Hmm... Here goes..."

>FREQUENCY... COMPRESSED!!!

The Boom-Boxer's pincher attack is a fail, as the Mutant Moshers pass through the Misty Mountains and ditches him in the Jungle Jam, his brain frequency so compressed he can't pursue us.

The Crusty Bubbler shoots a dirty filth bubble out of his mutant muffler-lung, struggling to breathe, as per usual.
>>
Rolled 10, 3 - 3 = 10 (2d15 - 3)

The Breaktrancers are the weakest enemies, but The Crusty Bubbler can't get a clean melee shot due to the environment!!

He instead charges in to the Disco Inferno, turns around and fires off two shots, hoping they'll result in a kill!

___________________________________

Tango shoots some kind of Dance Ray at The Crusty Bubbler, but it's just short of hitting him. Tango doesn't even look tired after shooting it. Is it possible that Tango has two attacks per turn, just like a Mutant Mosher?

The Crusty Bubbler uses his scouter to check Supreme Commander Tango's power levels.

...It's over 9000!!!

Looks like Tango's got 58HP, a "basic" attack that hits in every direction for potentially massive damage and applies Tangoing; and a Range 3, Cooldown 1, single-target Dance ray known as Dance Commander's Rebuke, which has a super duper heavy chance of making us do the Tango AND some other random Dance, but deals no damage. Let's not forget that while he's using his life force to power the failing FPSDBSBJGTSSMOTHRT, we'll have +2 mods on all our attacks against him!!

There's a Panic! At the Disco (Division).

The remaining goons come in for an attack!!

>Standby...

Rolled 5, 4 = 9 (2d8)

The Boom-Boxer is as if covered in a wave of static electricity and blank radio signals. He doesn't move, not even an antenna.

The Northern Breaktrancer tries to get at C.B., but he's just a tad too bogged down by his JNCO jeans to catch up.

The one in the South has just enough gumption to get in between The Humorless Bard and Mobilesuit Riptail to perform a B-Boy Bonk on both of them!! (Int. Freestyle)

Meanwhile, the last Safety Dancer retreats and reloads his Disco Biscuit Launcher, and takes aim at Crusty Bubbler! (Limbo)

5 goons run around like chickens with their heads cut off, trying to retreat to protect Tango, or perhaps seek his protection from the Mutant Moshers.

Speaking of beheadings, there's only one left to perform on the hydraulic hipster hydra known as the Disco Division.

As moving 6666 would put Palewalker inside of a geyser (Obstacle), we'll move him onto a Health Patch next to The Humorless Bard so he can heal more and still remain in range to rush in and Paledrive Tango through his own dark inferno.

Since Palewalker Focused really hard, and since Wally was a no-good fink, I'll allow his double Rest.

He focuses so hard, the whole team can do it... Once!!

Everyone can do it exactly one time, meaning Crystalline Riptail and The Humorless Bard may double Rest once, if they choose to do so. Crusty Bubbler and Palewalker cannot double Rest anymore.

The Boom-Boxer comes out of back-to-back frequency compression and falls back in to pursuit of the Mutant Moshers, but he ends up short, steaming mad in the Cool Waters.

The Haka Hulk sees Crystalline Riptail flying through the Imprisoning Darkness, and Crusty Bubbler suffering in the Disco Inferno. He walks over and tries to get both of them to join in Headbanging with him with a fierce(?) Shaka-Laka-Haka!!

What's this out comes a severely fat and sluggish Mutant Mosher, who climbed up Peak Polka to surprise attack Supreme Commander Tango, but he's way too late now!! He's huffing and puffing, is he in shape for this fight?

>Deploy at Disco Inferno to left of Tango's old spot
>Move 5544
>Basic attack the 4HP Safety Dancer twice to turn him into mincemeat for more wieners
>Move 5 to Disco Inferno

QM's new character:
>"Bratman" (Icon: orange "monolith")
>DUR 4 STR 15 MAG 0 SPD 0 CHA 11
HP 30 | Move 5 | Res 82 | 1d20 basic attack
-Weenie Toss, Cooldown 1, Range 10. Conjure a Phantom Phrank from the God-Toh realm and launch it. Does exactly 1 damage. Cannot be affected by roll mods. Removes all Dances if used on an ally.
-Mustard. Just Mustard., Cooldown 1, Shoot a beam of mustard out of your armpits and swirl around in all directions. This does nothing at all.
-Your Wurst Nightmare, Cooldown 3, Perform a basic attack. If you damage the target, they are humiliated and perhaps exposed to salmonella.

Rolled 10 (1d10)

>Tango Phase II begins!!

His robot voice barks "Gah! I can't move! Hit him again with the Disco Biscuit Launcher, let's see how low they can go!!"

The Safety Dancer falls to a flurry of attacks before he can launch his attack.

The Haka Hulk is not as hindered, even though a radio tower just fell on him. He rushes 55555 into the cool waters, tired. Since he can't hit another cooling-down Shaka-Laka-Haka, he just grimaces at Palewalker and bashes The Humorless Bard for pure damage. Halved by Cool Waters, naturally.
>>
Rolled 2 (1d10)

The Bard is manhandled by the raging Hulk.
_

We tried holding him back forever, but the aggro'd Boom-Boxer comes in to smack the pale motherfucker who keeps turning the music in his head off! He goes for a 1d12 basic attack...

He changes his mind when he notices the crippled Crystalline Riptail and attempts to take her as well in his signature move, a Boom-Blast!! (1d10 in all directions, apply Finger Snapping)

...Did Cristal survive? Or is it true that the good die young?

Supreme Commander Tango maniacally laughs, seemingly not even paying attention to the battle's flow. Since no one is in range to attack, he slams the trifling Bratman with the Dance Commander's Rebuke: Tangoing and Limboing!!

Wow, Bratman is TWISTED!!! There's no way he's about to Dance in his current mental state!
_

We now outnumber the foe.

The remaining goons gather 'round the geyser-fountain in the center of Peak Polka.

There's a hearty, half-healthy Haka Hulk and a bloody, beaten and bruised Boom-Boxer. They mean to keep you away from their master.

Tango finally snaps out of his compressed frequency, and twists a knob on the front of his robo-exo-skele-suit! He gasps for air, returns to doing his movement-boosting Running Man Dance, and cackles: "HA-HA-HA!! FOOLISH MUTANT MORTALS, TRY AND HACK INTO MY FREQUENCY NOW!!! I'M INVINCIBLE, ARE YOU'REEEEE FUCKKKEDDD!!!!"

Frequency Compressor won't work on Tango anymore!!! His goons, however...

>Now they know what it's like to be outnumbered!! Tango is wobbly, and his goons aren't so sturdy as they once thought they were! Let's get 'em!!

Rolled 6 (1d12)

The Boom-Boxer is confused and outnumbered. Not to mention, delirious from being at 3HP. He measures his options, attacks The Humorless Bard, for some reason saying "This is for Bratman!!" then retreating into Imprisoning Darkness.
(Headbanging)

Wha-? Why would he say that?!
>>
Rolled 13, 4, 18 = 35 (3d20)

Despite being nearly Paledriven to death, the Haka Hulk reappers, staggers forth with 5HP, and hits a Basic Attack on Bratman! (Riverdance)

Tango surveys the battlefield and finally realizes his circumstances. But he still laughs and Dances.

He stares down the defiant Palewalker and accepts his challenge, slamming him with a basic attack, then retreating 1 tile and hitting Bratman with the same attack!! He then wiggles his booty and taunts you, daring you to follow him into the recesses of the Darkness. It looks like he wants to make his last stand by the wreckage of his FJBLGBTQIAA2+LMNOPQIRSCIAFBIDEAKEKBURP Radio Tower.
(Tango on both)

A captain must go down with his ship.

Caught off guard from the snip- I mean sneak attack, The Bard begins Headbanging for 3 turns!! He can't use his MAG stat!!! He's reduced to d5 basic attacks (This affects Wicker Jeer as well)!! Not to mention, rolling 1-3 counts as a crit fail, meaning he only strikes on 4's and 5's! Yikes! Somebody, do something!

Due to Finger Snapping, Cristal heals only +17 HP from double resting (and +5 from Health Patch).

To make the entire situation stickier, Palewalker and The Humorless Bard begins Tangoing for 2 turns!! They can't move at all!! They'll be damaged by any Action they take that doesn't free them of their maladies!

What a debilitating Dance! What a cad that evil Supreme Commander is!

>>5292904
That acronym stands for (a reference to the acronym of) Flower-Power, Sucka-Don't-Be-Sour, Bumpin', Jammin', Got-The-Speakers-Slammin', Man-Of-The-Hour's Radio Tower.

Cutscene: Tango walks over to a weakened Bratman and robotically cackles "The jig is up, that blithering Boom-Boxer spilt the beans, bucko. And I don't need a double agent in my midst. That's right, I know you're not loyal anymore, after seeing how you shot your weenie on the dragon girl to stop her from jiggling her bosom. You are a double-crossing no-good snake. Now you die like one."
Bratman explodes into a billion bloody pieces as Tango runs his robot disco ball arm into his chest.

QM dies and is physically incapable of creating another Mutant Mosher!!

It's an even 3v3 fight again!!

It's up to Palewalker, Crystalline Riptail, and The Humorless Bard to put a stop to this once and for all!!

The goons are weary and ready for death. Their Supreme Commander just won't give up the ghost, though.

He takes two USB flashdrives out of a compartment and launches them with incredible speeds at both of his goons. (It deals no damage to them)

Tango haughtily explains: "HA-HA-HA!!! Even if you manage to defeat me, surely one of my goons will survive and carry on my legacy with all my evil documents and playlists I just downloaded to their brain!!! HA-HA-HA!!!!"

No way! Now we've definitely gotta...

The REAL Mutant Moshers scarcely acknowledged the treacherous Bratman's arrival and death.

Crystalline Riptide ventures into the lair of the great fiend, but keeps her distance so she can return to the Health Patch. Her Crystalline Claws shoot out several meters and stab into the circuitry of Tango for 10 damage total. "An inferior electro-organism. Hmph." After finding out Tango's schematics from her assault, Cristal retreats to the Health Patch and meditates, completely healing her HP.

Tango's motors whirr uncontrollably, then sputter out. He falls to his cyborg knees for a minute, then climbs back to his cyborg feet. He glances at the male Moshers, Dancing a rather sporty and fresh version of the Tango together, with some personal flare from both Palewalker and the Humorless Bard. Sitting ducks on the deadliest dancefloor... "HA-HA-HA!! KILL THEM!!!!!"

Just as his goons approach, Palewalker finishes chanting his latest incantations and frees the fleet feet meat to beat neat, discrete retreats. Sweet!

The Bard holds his ground on the Health Patch, giving Cristal her space so they don't get ganged up on. He pulls out a flute on a necklace from under his doublet and lets out... Well, to be honest, his best piece of music yet!! Because no one could hear it! Bahahahahaha!!!! (Sorry~~~!!!)

Despite our moxie and quick-wittedness, it's still a 3v3!!

Uh oh... The Haka Hulk has picked up someone's scent... Run, Palewalker, run!!!!!!

It's like watching a clown or matador get gored by a bull at a rodeo. Speaking of... Man, if only Clown-Matador were here with his Maxed Stats and incredible Mutant Powers... He would've cleaned up this problem in no time.

Wait, what is that at the entrance of Peak Polka?!?!

Rainbow hair...
Spanish attire...
A gleaming orange balloon rapier...

Clown Matador? I thought you were on vacation in Barthelona!
No, wait, that's not him.
That's just a funny looking rock.

...

Sorry.

Haka Hulk performs a basic attack!! Oof!! He broke a dang rib!! This Pacific Islander's attack strangely makes Palewalker want to... Perform the national cultural Dance of Ireland!!!

Tango hunts down the Health Patch hangabouts and delivers one devastating Basic Attack to each

>55554 attack Bard (1st roll)
>3 attack Riptail (2nd)
>656, end turn behind Bard on Misty Mountain tile.

(Tango trying to apply Tango every turn is kind of... anticlimactic, especially as we're down to the nitty gritty here. His basic attack now attempts to apply two random Dances instead of Tangoing. Yes, two. Because he's da baws. I'll roll for those from this >>5272534 chart, 2d8 - 1 is FingSnap, 2 is Limbo, all the way down left to right, to 8 is Tango. His Special Attack will stay the same.)
