MR Story: Raid the Babylonian Tower
« on: May 16, 2016, 01:16:46 PM »
Spurred on by Echo's recent addition to the MR Universe I figured it was time to write some stuff myself.

This story is about MR members doing some actual raiding of a dungeon that suddenly appeared in MR City. With a party of 7 members they head off into the mysterious structure hoping to get crazy experience and mad loot.

Was gonna write it all in one go but I think I'm gonna write it in parts now since I felt like doing something a bit longer. Plus if I post the first part then I'm pretty much obligated to continue.

Spoiler
Raid the Babylonian Tower - Part 1

Lego: What do you think it is?

Coryn: Probably just another one of the members’ creations.

Lego: You sure about that? I can’t imagine anyone less than a mod making this.

Coryn: Well I didn’t make it and I’m sure you didn’t either.

Lego: What about Churro?

Coryn: I doubt that, I don’t think it matches her MO.

Lego: Then you think Musick came back to play a prank?

Coryn: Unlikely.

Lego: So you think one of the Admins?

Coryn: …no.

Lego: Give me something to go on here.

Coryn: Like I said: It’s probably just some random member’s doing.

Lego: I don’t know, man. This is just…big.

Lego looks up to get a better sense of what stands before him. A tall tower—no, tall doesn’t do it justice—an infinite tower reaching up into the sky and past the clouds loomed over both he and Coryn who came to investigate the sudden and mysterious appearance.



Litt: So boooooored.

Pub-tan: If you’re not gonna drink then go home.

Litt: But there’s nothing to do there.

Pub-tan: There’s nothing to do here!

Litt: But I’m boooooored!

Pub-tan: I swear to Haruhi I am going to-

Churro: Hello?

Pub-tan: Welcome?

Litt: Like a robot.

Pub-tan: What was that!?

Litt: Nothing!

Churro: Have you two seen Coryn or Lego? I can’t seem to call them and they don’t seem to be at HQ.

Pub-tan: No, I haven’t. Maybe you should check by that weird tower.

Litt & Churro: Tower?



Litt: Definitely weird.

Churro: Yup.

Lego: So both of you have no idea who did this?

Litt: Nope.

Churro: It wasn’t Coryn?

Coryn: No, it wasn’t.

Lego: This is really getting on my nerves here! WHO DID THIS!?

Litt: Iunno, but it’s not really something to be mad about, is it?

Churro: Yeah, it’s not like that time Coryn accidently opened a portal in the middle of MR City and let loose a flood of spambots.

Coryn: That wasn’t an accident, it was an experiment. And if I remember correctly it was a magnificent success because now we know spambots make great fertilizer.

Lego: I know it isn’t a big deal but it’s a GIANT TOWER and it’s an eyesore if anything else.

Litt: I like it. Reminds me of those 100 floor dungeons in RPGs.

Coryn: Huh? I guess it does.

Churro: Think it has a final boss waiting for us at the top?

Litt: If it doesn’t then I’d be disappointed.

Coryn: Okay! It’s decided.

Litt: What is?

Coryn: We’re going to raid the dungeon!

Churro: I thought we raided manga?

Coryn: No, we don’t.

Litt: Of course we don’t, you can’t raid manga.

Churro: Why not?

Litt: Because we create it here. That’d be like saying a baker’s job is to steal bread.

Churro: Then why are we called “Raiders”?

Litt and Coryn look at each other and shrug their shoulders in response.

Lego: Are you serious?

Coryn: Do you know why we’re called “Raiders”?

Lego: What? No. I’m talking about raiding this dungeon.

Coryn: Oh. That. Well, yeah.

Litt: Why wouldn’t we?

Churro: I’m in if everyone else is okay with it.

Lego: I am not okay with it. We don’t even know what’s in there!

Litt: Can’t be any more dangerous than one of Coryn’s “experiments”.

Churro: Or one of MR’s…events.

Lego: But-

Coryn: Are you in or not, Lego?

Lego: How is this- Sigh Alright. I’m in.

Coryn: Good. Now all we need is a physical DPS.

Litt: What?

Coryn: You know, like a rogue, or an archer. A gunner if we can.

Lego: What are you talking about?

Coryn: God, do you guys know nothing about proper RPG etiquette? Litt’s the tank, Lego’s the mage, Churro’s the healer, and I’m the scientist.

Litt: Nonono, hold on a sec. Why am I the tank? That means all I do is get hit.

Coryn: For the team.

Churro: Don’t worry, I’ll heal you.

Litt: That’s not my problem here.

Lego: And since when did RPGs have “scientists”?

Coryn: Fine, “alchemist” if you will.

Lego: That still isn’t-

Coryn: Let’s split up to look for that other party member.

Dismissing any other complaints from L&L, Coryn warped away. The other three party members were left standing before the Tower with more questions than answers but before they could make any more complaints they heard three Pings.

Litt: Looks like some people logged in.

Lego: We might as well go ask if one of them wants to be our—what was it? “Physical DPS”?

Litt: Alright. Let’s split up.



Manimal: Alright! I’m gonna hit the usual spots real quick and log off.

Lego: Hey, Manimal.

Manimal: Ohey, Lego. What’s going on?

Lego: Don’t get me started.

Manimal: ?

Lego: I’m just asking this out of duty here, but do you want to be our physical DPS?

Manimal: What? Like a RPG sort of thing.

Lego: Yeah…like an RPG.

Manimal: What’s wrong? You don’t seem into it at all.

Lego: I’m not.

Manimal: Know what’ll cheer you up?

Lego: What?

Manimal: A bard!

Lego: A bard?

Manimal: That’s right, buddy. I’m gonna be your bard!

Lego: No, but I was looking for-

Manimal: This is gonna be fun!




Churro: Hey, Echo! Echo? Echo?

Echo: Very funny, Churro.

Churro: Heh.

Echo: So what’s up?

Churro: I’m looking for someone to join our party.

Echo: You’re having a party?

Churro: Oh, no. I mean like our dungeon party.

Echo: You’re having a dungeon themed party?

Churro: Umm…

Echo: I’m not really one for themed parties.

Churro: No, I meant like a game party.

Echo: What kind of games? Board? Video? Mind?

Churro: Uhh…




Litt: Vacant!

Vacant: Can’t talk now, heading to the Pub.

Litt: Real quick then. Want to join our RPG party?

Vacant: Can’t, gotta move fast or I’ll miss Happy Hour.

Litt: Yeah, but how about after that?

Vacant: After sounds good but right now busy.

Litt: Okay then see- He’s gone.



[One hour later]

Coryn: So who’d you guys get?

Lego: I got a bard.

Manimal: Toot toot.

Churro: Umm, I have…uhh, can you explain it to her please? I’m tired.

Echo: So where’s the party? Is it BYOB?

Litt: I got, uhh, Vacant?

Vacant is head first in a nearby garbage bin vomiting.

Litt: …I got him.

Coryn: Looks good.

Lego, Litt and Churro: It does?!

Coryn: All we need is one physical DPS and Echo can do that, right?

Echo: Sure.

Churro: That easy!?

Manimal: Can I still tag along?

Coryn: Sure, I never turn down a buff in musical form.

Litt: are you still in, Vacant!?

Vacant: Sure thing, just gimme a min- Bluhrggg

Coryn: Okay, once Vacant’s done dry heaving we’ll march through those doors.

Lego: I still think this is a bad idea.

Coryn: Here at Manga Raiders there are no bad ideas, just bad execution.

Lego: Can we just execute this idea?

Coryn: Good plan, Lego! Through the doors we go!

Litt: Come on, Vacant. Maybe there’s a washroom inside.

Churro: Let’s go, Echo.

Echo: We’re leaving already?

Churro: no, we’re…haah…

Lego: …I guess we should go too, Manimal.

Manimal: Yeah! Time to wreck some cannon fodder mobs!

Crazy experience indeed. Time to see some serious play XD

Feels like the start of an awesome DMC-esque video game

Clearly the party starts after you raid all the loot. Duh.

Fun little writing by the way. I'll be following this. (I need to catch up on my MR History. Ugh.)
Haha signature go brr.
