I take objection to the idea that public health is "politics" just because some politicians don't listen to the experts.

@  fourteenwings : (04 March 2021 - 10:59 AM)

I was only replying to the general sentiment of the last three posts before mine.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (04 March 2021 - 10:58 AM)

The person you replied to specifically gave the example of "limiting the amount of people in a facility".

@  NotVeryKnightly : (04 March 2021 - 10:58 AM)

This wasn't about "lock[ing] everyone in the country down".

@  fourteenwings : (04 March 2021 - 10:57 AM)

All I'm saying is there are lockdown and anti-lockdown people and hashing it out in the shoutbox on a toy forum is dumb.

@  fourteenwings : (04 March 2021 - 10:56 AM)

You don't have to lock everyone in the country down to mitigate risks in one population.

@  fourteenwings : (04 March 2021 - 10:56 AM)

Of course older people have it worse, but America is one of those countries where people ship their old people to homes far away from the action anyways.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (04 March 2021 - 10:55 AM)

What ar you even trying to say, anyway? That we shouldn't complain about others increasing the danger more than necessary?

@  fourteenwings : (04 March 2021 - 10:55 AM)

Frankly, there's a lot to say on this issue that can't be encompassed on the shoutbox and I really really don't want to have to deal with politics every single time I check the forums.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (04 March 2021 - 10:54 AM)

To claim that this is about the people in the 20-40 range is also disingenuous.

@  fourteenwings : (04 March 2021 - 10:53 AM)

Essential workers and such are pretty fit on average which is an extra boon for them.

@  fourteenwings : (04 March 2021 - 10:51 AM)

It's not really a personal choice issue, it's a risk versus well, anything you want to do issue. Literally leaving the house results in potential exposure, mask or no. Overall, most of us who hang out here are 20-40, and our survival rate is comparable with some pretty out there statistics.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (04 March 2021 - 10:39 AM)

Anybody who has to go out because of work or groceries or whatever can't just choose to avoid any potential disease-spreaders, for one thing.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (04 March 2021 - 10:38 AM)

Kind of disingenuous to frame this as just a personal choice issue.

@  fourteenwings : (04 March 2021 - 10:22 AM)

This whole "I can't handle people not me having the choice to not put on masks" thing's a bit much.

@  -LittleAutob... : (04 March 2021 - 09:14 AM)

Hey, Florida is one of the most infected states, and we won't even shut down. We may use masks, but restaurants, clubs, you name it, those are still wide open. Also, what's limiting the amount of people in a facility again? :p

@  TM2-Megatron : (03 March 2021 - 04:18 PM)

I've heard new appliances are hard to get, for some reason

@  wonko the sane? : (03 March 2021 - 04:13 PM)

Didn't that come right after the 2016 clown panic? No way to make clowns not disturbing at the time, surely.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (28 February 2021 - 04:26 AM)

The clown guise is supposed to lure kids in, it's no good if it looks sus in one glance.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (28 February 2021 - 04:15 AM)

The new one tries too hard to be unsettling from the start. Curry's look is just a plain old clown, until he very much is not.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (28 February 2021 - 04:14 AM)

And Curry has a far more disturbing look at times than the newbie.

@  Sabrblade : (28 February 2021 - 02:22 AM)

@  unluckiness : (27 February 2021 - 10:19 PM)

"Just my luck..." From within the shop, someone coughed and gagged at the scent of vinegar and rot, stumbling at the uneven ground. The person squinted, trying to make out what was going on. Out of the line of sight, it sounded like a small group was talking about something a few aisles over. The person could see the exit at the other end of the store, however. They spotted the three stupid thugs that had been bothering someone and two others that had just made their way in.

 

Wait... did they say-

 

"o... Omegaman?" A solitary hand raised in the back of the store and waved, hoping to get his attention. But then they spotted the mushroom monster.

"LOOK OUT!!!"

Turning on instinct as he saw the goons expressions change, Omega beheld the strange and gruesome mushroom creature...

Leaping up and forwards, the Knight took a firm grip on Retribution, he made to slash at the thing as he heard what sounded like a warning. Having no spare time to react, he simply yelled.

"Stand and fight!"

"Easy for you to say!" Unsteady feet searched for stability on the squishy floor. One hand holding large hardcover book violently squished an evil mushroom.
"My collector's edition..." The person closed an eye for a moment, then snapped open. "Right. You're gonna regret messing with Haru, fungus!" The figure of a slightly tubby man dressed in loud clothes stood up, one brown eye glaring fiercely behind long brown bangs.
"...oh wait. Is the proper plural fungi-" His grammatical pondering was interrupted as he lost his footing again and reached out to a shelf for support.

When the Omega Knight leaped to the fray, the goon who had asked for an autograph put up a fighting stance, started to approach the mushroom beast, and promptly fainted. The second guy put up a fighting stance, started to approach, then started screaming in terror and ran away. The third heroically grabbed a woman who was rushing out of Merchant Javier's and shouted, "Eat her, not me! Once you're full, you'll go away, right?"

 
Meanwhile, a tendril darted out of the maw of a shelf carrying rice and snatched Night Cap out of Dee's pouch! Being dragged towards it, he could see that inside the maw was more rice...though perhaps every other grain was replaced with a writhing maggot. The old woman grabbed Night Cap but wasn't strong enough to avoid getting dragged along as well. Sobbing, she apologized saying, "I'm sorry mister horsey! I didn't mean for all this to happen..."

Beathra raised an eyebrow and then aimed a well placed open-palm slap to the back of the remaining goon's head.

 

"Run, then, coward, and may thy fortune find thee in just deserts!"

 

Here he turned and thrust forth his staff at the Mushroom Beast and cried out,

 

"Flicker fire, burning bright,

 Set this creature to searing light,

 Well fried 'shrooms make mighty a meal,

 So scorch this beast for feast's appeal!1"

 

And lo a torrent of flames seem to shoot up around the fungal foe, searing it2.

 

"Though mere morsel be this twisted beast, 

 To tempt the tongue, a taste, at least3,

 A skewer here, to hold my share,

 A fried kabob of disgusting fare!4"

 

Beathra gave a thrust with his staff which took on the aspect of a great wooden spear and it seemed that the Beast was skewered, being roasted over a magic fire.

At the sight of the third goon trying to throw a woman at the thing, Kage snarled.

"You wretched scum!"

Leaping backwards to throw himself between the beast and the woman. The Omega lashed out at their now burning opponent.

Spoiler


Omega spun and hurled an Omegarang at the thing. Its proximity fuse detonating on contact.

Haru couldn't help but stare in awe as Omega, a cloaked man, and a busty redhead attacked the monster.
"I guess it really is Omegaman." He snapped to attention as some small creature and an old lady were being dragged towards the monster. "What would he do...?"
He dropped the book to the floor and his hand shot out to the nearby shelves. He was rewarded with a metal spatula from kitchenware. He stumbled more than ran forward and aimed the edge at the tenril holding Cappy.
"Eat THIS!" He gave out a quick snort of amusement and then mumbled to himself. "Oh man, that was cliché..."

The mushroom's attention was focused on Beathra and it spewed a cloud of nauseous mold spores at the cloaked warrior. Meanwhile, the goon seemed to be cheering from behind the woman he was using as a human shield. "Ah yeah, Omega Knight and his sidekick are about to wreck you dawg!"

 
Inside, the shelf let go of Night Cap and literally tried to eat the spatula. However, something seemed to have gotten stuck and the indigestibility of the stainless steel caused it to fall to pieces. However, others in the store seemed to be getting backed into the corner by the other horrors that had been unleashed.

At first, Beathra stumbled back, coughing, but he raised the ironwood staff and brought it down with a thunderous crack and the spores were driven away on a gust of wind.

 

"Thou art but a pale imitation of nature, a twisted mockery of all that grows and so will rightfully perish!1"

 

Here he thrust forth his staff and cried out, "Naught you do to this flesh and blood will stay my hand, for I am Beathra! Life unending!  And the very living Earth is my power! Come! Beat thyself against me and fall!2"

 

Meanwhile Beathra's crackling flame continued to burn at the Mushroom Beast3.

Hearing the goon, Kage turned to glare as he started to slowly spin Retribution.

"Release that woman now. Or else!"

Then he spun back to the mushroom creature, skewered it with his blade and jumped! As he somersaulted over the thing, Omega peppered it with a barrage of Omegarangs. Their spikes digging into its surface as the Knight landed on the other side.

"Cheer all you want. It does not change my opinion of your actions."

Omega then snapped his fingers. In unison, the Omegarangs lit up and electrified the mushroom thing, as bolts of blue-white energy danced between them. Walking around the writhing thing, Omega grinned unpleasantly at the cowering goon.

"Ypu would sacrifice another to save your own life?"

Wrenching Retribution free of the creature, Omega raised his left hand.

"Beathra is not a Sidekick. He is a power all his own. Now do as i say, or you will receive the same mercy i show this monster."

The Knights fingers snapped. The Omegarangs exploded!

With the defeat of the rice bag, Haru stumbled back to his feet. He glanced towards the entrance, catching a glimpse of Omega jumping around and electricity shocking the mushroom beast.
"Whoa..." The old woman's cries brought his attention back to the inside of the store.
He looked at the busty redhead, the woman on the floor, and the small pony creature. The beast outside probably wouldn't last long, but smaller things still lurked around inside.
Haru spoke to the redhead first. "Get everyone out of here." He crouched down to the old woman who was still apologizing and placed a hand on her back.
"No point dwelling in the past, right? It'll be ok. Come on, let's see if we can't fix this mess."

The goon let go of the woman, who almost immediately elbowed him in the gut and then ran off. Following that, the mushroom beast promptly exploded in a cloud of dust spores.

The shoppers began to follow Dee's instructions but then ran back to the corner as two shelves tried to box them in. Meanwhile, the old woman nodded in response to Haru but still looked fairly lost. "I...I don't know what to do."

As wave of spores washed over him, Kages mouth twisted in disgust as he tried not to inhale.

Turning to the two unconscious goons and the cowardly compatriot, now bereft of his human shield. The Omega Knight pulled out some handcuffs and grapnel line. Then set about b9nd9ng the goons as quickly as he coukd.

"Do not make things difficult," he said the lone conscious goon. "There are others within i mudt help. So submit without fuss.

Beathra, how fare you?"

Beathra shuddered under the effect of the spores but held firm.

 

"I am well enough, but we cannot let this spread.  It seems we must venture inside to deal with this disturbance."

 

Here he fixed his eyes upon Kage and spoke,

 

"Steel thyself for naught good lies ahead,

 Clear thy mind and put all doubts to bed1.

 This magic is dark, what bleeds our mind,

 But the Earth gives all the power we must find.

 Strong be thy hand and stoutness to thy heart,

 Be quick on thy feet, and tear this threat apart2!"

 

And Kage fealt energy filling him and his strength grow.

 

With that, what still lingering flames remained that charred the beast leapt up and whipped about Beathra and he seemed restored3.

 

"Finish thy binding and follow - we have much to do."

 

And thusly he entered the shop.

Haru let out a sheepish laugh that was interrupted by a cough from the smell.
"Yeah, me neither. I didn't see what happened, but I heard it a little. Something about a book, right? Maybe the answer's there." Haru looked around and spotted Dee. "Miss, would you happen to know anything about stopping magical mold?"
