[So, how have the past few days treated you? Have you found a place to stay? Have you met some friends? Maybe rested enough to recover your wounds? Well, let’s hope so...

Near the beginning of the afternoon a giant shockwave will rumble through the walls and a large explosion will be heard all across the Castle, causing a huge hole to open up from the gardens. And apparently failing to notice the huge door right next to it.

A few moments later, a few dozen ghosts come pouring in, attacking anyone and everything in sight. And that’s only those who have managed to enter the Castle: the troops have the entire area surrounded.

Finally a few moments later a much bigger and larger ghost shows up, gratuitously posing for everyone to see.]

Alright boys, now that Prince Laharl is long gone, this place is ours. Drive out these old sympathisers, we don’t need a bunch of Krichevskoy losers hanging around. Things are gonna change around here.

[The army of ghosts all stop and salute]

All hail the Ghost Overlord!

(OOC: For a full explanation, please see here)

[After he's had his fun mowing down that flood of minions, Laharl finally kicks open the door to his throne room to find the wannabe Overlord. He should have figured sooner that this idiot would try to take the throne without first defeating its rightful owner.]

A coward like you has no right to sit there. You've got one chance to surrender before I beat the crap out of you.

[And here comes one of the vassals, with what appears to be a burning sword on his shoulder.]

East wing's clear, chief. You want a hand with this chump or should I just hang back and watch the fireworks?

[And with that, there's the racket of one of the Ghost Overlord's lieutenants being pummeled one room over... followed by the sound of a bomb blowing a hole through the wall in the throne room. Seems the ghost tried to use one on his attacker... but it didn't work. And it wouldn't work a second time when it got kicked through the hole it accidentally created, crashing into the wall on the other side and sliding down it like slug.

That ghost isn't moving, nor is he getting up any time soon.

Adell then climbs through the hole in the wall, to see Laharl and Soma already confronting the Ghost Overlord.]

Room for one more in this party? This guy needs a good ass-whooping if he doesn't take a hike.
wannabesaint: (CHARGE)

[personal profile] wannabesaint 2014-04-03 12:26 pm (UTC)(link)
Shoot, I wanted to kick his butt!

[And right behind Adell came Priere, a bit miffed that he managed to get to a stronger ghost before she did, but she'll survive. After all, they finally reached the self proclaimed "Overlord", didn't they?]

Well, this one better be harder than the rest of them: these wimps weren't even worth my time!

"So... what's going on?"

There was Flonne. She'd pulled out her staff and looked ready to help, but she was also confused.

Yeah, Flonne had been in her room watching anime, when she finally realized something was going on. It had taken turning off her TV for her to realize all the noise wasn't coming from the episode. It seemed she'd missed a lot.
makainoou: (just give up)

[personal profile] makainoou 2014-04-06 07:28 pm (UTC)(link)
About time you showed up, Flonne. You nearly missed all the action.

[He grins unkindly at the ghost, but speaks instead to his new vassals.]

I'm not sure there's enough of this guy to go around, but I won't turn away anyone who wants a piece.

[Laharl draws his sword and charges for the ghost "overlord," intent on cutting through any of the minions who get in his way.]

I'll make you regret this!

[Dinner and a show, now this is what he calls living.

...except he forgot the popcorn. Dammit.]

Casper over there decided that since Laharl lost some kinda bet ages ago, he gets to be the new overlord. He blew a hole in the wall and poured in a whole lot of cannon fodder, which he let get slaughtered while he snuck in here.

Some of us were gonna watch the fight with popcorn and drinks, but we forgot to swing by the shop to grab some. [Yeah, he looks slightly abashed - although whether for admitting to the plan or for forgetting to grab the refreshments is anyone's guess.]
trademark_skull: (Worst sneaking)

[personal profile] trademark_skull 2014-04-08 02:57 am (UTC)(link)
[Speaking of watching the fight...]

[....No, he wasn't hiding, he clearly wasn't intentionally trying to hide. I mean, the ghost 'Overlord' definitely wasn't scary. And the other Overlord is just an idiot as far as he knew, but he probably is a lot stronger..]


[Alright fine, he's hiding, but probably not so well. If this sort of battle is going to decide their fate it might be important to see anyway. This was Laharl's only chance to prove himself as a competent Overlord so he better make it count.]
vulcanblazer: (Point!)

[personal profile] vulcanblazer 2014-04-09 12:35 am (UTC)(link)
[Adell laughs at Soma's quick recap, and then turns to the Ghost Overlord.]

See? I'm not the only one who calls you that!

And if you gotta summon more of your little mooks to draw some fire, it doesn't speak well to your power, ya Wannabe Overlord. If you're gonna fight, fight like a real man. Or real woman. Whichever!

[He cracks his knuckles one more time and lunges in to deal with the cannon fodder for now. The demon hunter knows Laharl's gonna want the first blow on the dumb ghost, considering it was his challenge, so he'll be nice and let him have it.

Don't disappoint, Prince!]
wannabesaint: (Getting peeved here)

[personal profile] wannabesaint 2014-04-09 02:22 am (UTC)(link)
Wait... How did you missed the huge explosion!? [Oh... Flonne... She's not quite sure what to make of that... Is everyone insane here?

And speaking of being insane, she casts a quick glace at both Soma and... Is that a green hood over there? It totally is.]

Urgh, are you two really just here to watch? [You two are not winning any points here]

Well, whatever, more for me! Repent!

[And with that, she raises her baton, rushing forwards, fire building up in her weapon.]

ainodatenshi: (Uhhhhhhh.... maybe? // You lost her)

[personal profile] ainodatenshi 2014-04-10 06:07 am (UTC)(link)
He... what? [This... is a lot to take in.]

I-I don't know! I had my TV volume turned up kind of loud, I guess? [She says to Priere, before focusing now on what's going on in the now. She'll stay back for now, ready to deliver any heals!]

makainoou: (just give up)

[personal profile] makainoou 2014-04-10 12:33 pm (UTC)(link)
Man, is that your name? That's unfortunate.

[Laharl may or may not actually believe that is the ghost's name, but it's definitely what he's going to call him from now on.

The paralysis wave only staggers him for a step and he grins.]

You'll have to do better than that, Casper!

[Taking a few steps forward, he brings his sword down for a Wind Cutter strike.]
notquitedracula: (You done goofed)

[personal profile] notquitedracula 2014-04-11 01:20 am (UTC)(link)
Would you rather be called Stretch, Stinky, or Fatso, then? I'd offer Slimer, but he was actually kinda cool.

[Yeah, the cannon fodder really did just die that quick. It was kind of embarrassing to watch, really. It made no sense to use something that weak as your vanguard, unless--

Oh. Now it was becoming a little clearer. Maybe this guy does have half a brain after all. Unfortunately it's a curse-type spell, so Soma doesn't even feel it.]

You know, I was just going to sit back and watch. I really was. But then you had to go and target the spectators...

[Soma's gonna toss a trio of fireballs at Casper, more cause he's annoyed than because he wants to do damage.]

[Adell doesn't bother dodging the paralysis wave. Much like Laharl, he possessed immense power, and all it did was stop him from lunging forward immediately.

He waved his finger.]

I've had a harder time with Inky, Pinky, Blinky, and Clyde. They're certainly smarter than you are, anyway!

Time to stop playing games, though. Here I come!

[With that, he lit his fist aflame and rushed at the Ghost Overlord with speed that could fool the eye... to slug the ghost with all of his might, not holding back even the slightest.]
wannabesaint: (That's SISTER uppercut for you!)

[personal profile] wannabesaint 2014-04-12 08:40 pm (UTC)(link)
[It wasn't the paralysis that got to her. Sure it hit her full force and stopped her in her tracks... but nothing her magic couldn't heal. No, what really got to her were how those ghosts were just killed for nothing.

What's the matter with you?! Those guys are supposed to be on your side!

[She didn't really care that at this point this was going to be overkill, she sprinted next to the ghost, aiming her kick right where it was going to hurt the most. He deserved nothing else.]
ainodatenshi: (Oh my--! // What's that!)

[personal profile] ainodatenshi 2014-04-13 03:36 pm (UTC)(link)
[Yeah, paralysis was hardly a problem. Flonne threw a quick espoir over herself and would be ready to do it to anyone else who needed it. She didn't prepare any kind of attack, since... well... yeah, everyone else kind of had that covered.]
trademark_skull: (I don't even know!)

[personal profile] trademark_skull 2014-04-13 10:09 pm (UTC)(link)
[--Wait what. How is he a hostage?! Why is he in the middle of this now?!]

[Not as planned. Not as plaaaaaanned]

NO! Get away!!

[Desperate times meant desperate measures. Clearly, the only true way out of this situation is to get out of it himself. Not expecting anyone else to save him anyway.]

[Panic mode was too deeply set in so magic was out of the question....But he still had a club, err..stave. And he totally has no trouble using it right now without thinking about it. Bet you weren't expecting that Ghosty.]
makainoou: (you're an idiot)

[personal profile] makainoou 2014-04-13 10:28 pm (UTC)(link)
[Laharl shoulders his sword when the ghost smacks into the wall, and doesn't appear remotely alarmed when he threatens Emizel.

Well, it's true this Overlord wasn't planning on making any rescue attempts, but that's largely because he thinks Casper is so weak a knock from a stave might do him in.]

This is getting sad. You know he's not even one of my vassals, right?
notquitedracula: (Let the bodies hit the floor)

[personal profile] notquitedracula 2014-04-13 10:39 pm (UTC)(link)
[A hostage. Now this guy was really scraping the bottom of the barrel - hell, he was practically scraping the bottom of the basement. But Soma's seen Emizel fight before, and even if he's easily flustered (as it appears he is), the little shinigami is quite formidable in his own right.]

Pathetic. I've seen barely-animated skeletons and zombies that were stronger than this creep. You're not even worth a stain on my sword; the souls of your own subordinates should be more than enough to finish this.

[So saying, he waves a hand, conjuring two basketball-sized globes of ectoplasm. They will seek out and cause damage to their target; they're fairly weak though, and won't even scratch someone like Emizel if one accidentally clips him.]
vulcanblazer: (Get Ready!)

[personal profile] vulcanblazer 2014-04-14 02:55 am (UTC)(link)
[Adell was going to rebuke the ghost Overlord for calling them cheaters. Hell, everything about what most of 'em did was all straight on and he had no business trying to question it when he was the one making the attack.

But then he took Emizel hostage. And that was something Adell would not abide.

He didn't bother with formalities. Or banter, or so much as another word. The ghost knew a vanishing trick, but so did he. And he was not going to be merciful. Not this time, not to a coward like that.

From everyone else's perspective, Adell must've looked like he was still in a ready position, before looking like he took a step forward. But suddenly, his outline and coloration faded into near darkness....

As he emerged suddenly and without warning above and behind the Ghost Overlord. The Tiger Charge successful, Adell drove his elbow down into the ghost overlord's head without mercy. It might kill him. Or it might knock him out for a good long time.

Either way, he's looking to put him down in a single strike.]
wannabesaint: (Pissing me off is a bad idea)

[personal profile] wannabesaint 2014-04-16 11:20 am (UTC)(link)
Why you--

[Unlike the two others, she didn't make a move when the ghost went for Emizel. For her, the chances of him getting hit in the crossfire were too high.

So of course, she was a bit taken aback when they attacked him. Even she wasn't that reckless...]
