INV ONLY The DANGERS of Books (Burn books kids)

Post by Vorik on October 10th 2020, 4:13 am

Gripping the steering wheel with a vice-like grip Dan's face was a mixture of absolute focus and determination. They all said he was crazy, mad to even consider it, but he'd prove them wrong. For weeks he's been gearing up for his cross country trip from New York to Florida. He had packed plenty of Go-Gurt and snake bars, a few audiobooks to listen to, and most importantly, he was now the proud renter of a beat-up Honda Civic which has come to be known as "The Dan Mobile"

Things had been going very well the past 18 hours of ceaseless driving and the occasional Go-Gurt break and The Dan Mobile-only breaking down 4 times. It was only now that problems surrounded him, threatening to overrun and drown him much like the watery wetlands he drove on. The more reasonable part of him whined about how he should have listened when the park ranger when he said that it was "fucking crazy" and how "you can't just drive a car through the wetlands, that's dangerous!", But he was DANGER DAN! and he was NOT about to let a little DANGER stop him.

He continued slowly driving the car through the more solid parts of the national park towards the seemingly random cabin in the distance. Only to stop as The Dan Mobile lurched forward as the not solid foundations gave way. With a sound that can only be described as a slushie machine breaking down mid-pour the car slowly sank. Hopping out of his car dan panicked, throwing his hands around aimlessly in the air unsure what to do. He tried to use his DANGEROUSLY powerful strength to pull the car out of the water but only succeeded in helping the car sink faster. With a last *Blopt!" the car was fully submerged. Mourning the loss of The Dan Mobile and the fact that the rental company was going to kill him, he pressed on to the cabin.

He wasn't concerned over the rental costs as he was going to score BIG on this DANGEROUS DEED!. He had it on good authority that there was a hidden lair of some kind called Sphere or something in the Everglades houses all sorts of weird magical shit. The main hope was to find something to make him more DANGEROUS to those loser heroes like Lightyear and Rabbit Punch. He hadn't actually met either of them but mark his words, they will pay.

DANGER DAN! tried to kick open the wooden door only to lose his balance as the door stood firm. Shaking his head he broke out his lock picks and went to work. The door opened with a squeak and the inside was...underwhelming. It looked just like a normal cabin, well, as normal as a cabin randomly built on wetlands could be. Must be some sort of lever inside for a secret tunnel or hatch Dan thought. Stepping inside he felt a sense of nausea as his vision blurred leaving him feeling like he was on one of those crappy carnival spinner things. As his vision cleared he realized he was no longer in a wooden cabin but somewhere else, some sort of underground tunnel system. He looked around in hopes of finding a "You are here" sign but there was nothing except the vacant cement walls and dim lights leading further down the tunnels. While the lights were dim there was more than enough light as just a few steps into the tunnels Dan was suddenly barraged under a torrent of fire from seemingly nowhere. Getting over the initial panic of being set on fire he shrugged and continued walking down the halls, ignoring the fire that continued to pour on him from seemingly nowhere. After a few minutes, the fire turned into a miniaturized storm of razor-sharp hail. The fragmented chunks of ice and strong gusts of winds knocked Dan back and forth, forcing him into a crouch as he weathered the phenomenal weather. It took yet more minutes of unrelenting hail before he reached yet another obstacle. A long stretch of the hallway was coated in metal rebar that seemed to go on for over a mile. Lighting arced, fizzled and pulsed between the various bars in what can only be described as an EDM rave gone wrong. DANGER DAN! groaned not because of the DANGERS in front of him, but just the annoyance of it. He wasn't worried about the lightning, after all, nothing could hurt him, but it was still a pain in the ass to move when you have thousands of volts making your muscles involuntarily contract. Sighing, he began to crawl across the galvanized floor, all the while voltages of untold magnitudes coursed through him. What would have taken all of 10 minutes of walking turned into an hour of crawling, muscle spasming, and complaining.

After what felt like forever he finally reached the end of the most metal hallway ever and was pleased to see a steel door, hopefully leading to whatever treasures the traps were for. As he approached the door he couldn't help but notice the almost comically large book sitting on a stand next to it. Curiosity got the better of him as he decided to check out the thing.

INV ONLY Re: The DANGERS of Books (Burn books kids)

Post by Zonkes Yesterday at 8:10 pm

The book sat on its shelf, bored as usual. Stupid government mandated holidays. Why couldn’t he get a day off? It wasn’t as if he wasn’t an employee.  Or at least he should be counted as one. He sacrifices and risks his knowledge just to teach talentless hacks how to do parlor tricks. Not only was it insulting for such a powerful artifact to be forced into servitude by such paltry mystics, if they even deserved such a title, but they wouldn’t even allow him to go to that sorority party at UCF! What was even the point of existing if he couldn’t even see scantily clad college girls? It was absolutely appalling.

Liam made an audible sigh, and flipped his pages to the pages that he kept hidden in the direct middle of himself. His story section. “Now let’s see… was the dragon battle here… or was it here… Wait, was I even supposed to add a dragon battle?”

Suddenly, a sound like crackling electricity filled the air and Liam shut himself as quickly as possible. Flames then. That would be the security wards. Who could’ve survived two of them? No matter, they were surely destroyed by the second. Then something sent a shiver down the books spine. A third ward activated, then a fourth. Finally, the door to the base swung open and in came a man. He was wearing a yellow jumpsuit with a beekeepers helmet on. What did the mortals call those? Hazmat? Some members of the ORB wore them when interacting with Liam. It kept his defenses from activating. Of course, those hazmats were purple and glowed faintly with a magical aura. Perhaps it was a thief, come to steal from the ORB? Hm… On one hand, he was obligated to attempt to protect the base. But on the other hand, he was completely within his right mind if he refused. After all, this enemy had gotten through several powerful wards without even a scratch on him. Those wards were stronger than magic that Liam could even hope to replicate alone.

The man looked around the room, and Liam tried not to look conspicuous. Which must’ve looked something like a book sitting totally still on a pedestal. Almost as if the book was just that. A book. ‘Dear god.  That man smells like… swamp water, yogurt, and cheetos!’ Was all that the book could think as the man seemed to stare around the room confused. Was he looking for something in particular? His eyes locked on Liam’s leather bound form, and suddenly began walking toward him.

“Halt!” Liam said, attempting not to gag, which was really saying something as the book did not contain a throat to create a gag reflex to begin with, as the man came within 2 feet of him. Honestly, what kind of barbarian eats nothing but dairy, and assumes that a dip in the swamp is going to make that smell better? “If you come any closer, I will be forced to unleash my immense magical power upon you.” Liam said, bluffing and hoping that the stranger wasn’t told of his real capabilities as a solo-mage. “What is it that you want?”

"Halt!"

Dan stopped as the command came from seemingly nowhere. He looked around the room for some type of speaker or person who had somehow snuck upon him.

“If you come any closer, I will be forced to unleash my immense magical power upon you.”


Oh, well that's silly. It was the weird-looking book making the noise. Despite the open threat, Dan felt himself at ease once again. A person who can sneak up on the MIGHTY DAN! was a truly DANGEROUS foe, but some book yelling at him was less so. If the book was anything like the initial traps then there wasn't much to be worried about.

“What is it that you want?”

Normally Dan didn't bother keeping up his wacky and manic personality that was DANGER DAN! when doing one of his heists. Not like there would be people around to monologue with, but the book was either some sort of camera or was a living thing itself. As the old saying goes, "Where there is a crowd there is a performance."

Striking villainous spouse #45 (Right foot prominently in front with a hand raised, clenching the air)

"What do I, DANGEROUS DAN! want you ask? I want nothing but world domination, united in FEAR under my DASTARDLY heel. I have come looking to take all of SPHERE'S most treasured possessions! They will be helpless as I enact my DANGEROUS DEEDS with their very own devices! Now, book, Will you stand in my DEADLY pursuit of power, acting as a door stopper, or well you let me pass while you cower in FEAR, bookmarking the day that you met DANGER DAN!"

He stood there still propped up in Villainous pose #45 waiting for a response.

The book rose from the pedestal and in a commanding voice, stated. ”You will go no further, fiend!” Liam certainly hoped that this would work, and from what he had learned from some of the recruits, magic in the modern era was all about misdirection:

Glowing red orbs appeared on the cover, and glared at Dan. The book opened, and revealed… a picture of Alec Guinness. The book rapidly flipped from page to page to make the picture do a hand gesture, like one would see famous magicians use. ”This is not the base you’re looking for. Leave.”

Liam was quite proud of that trick. He had managed to force a few of his students to leave with that stunt. Generally after a lot of grumbling and sighing. Of course, it wasn’t actually magic. Just some magic trick he saw in some movie. Liam did have to wonder how the intern that taught it to him managed to repeat the old wizard’s final scene though… oh, right. He forgot to disable the wards. Certainly, he did miss Jackson.
