The Barreller puts his mace arm at rest and swiftly stabs the doomed Goblin in the face with his sword. The kill isn't quite so clean and a sickening crunch can be quite clearly heard, it's times like this he wish he didn't have a sword made from stone. Fortunately for the Goblin blacksmith, the Grand Knight's sword is much sharper and more capable of delivering a swift death. Unfortunately for the very same Goblin, the Coco he attacked was far from the least dangerous. Hardly hindered by the blind and feeble attack, Dracoco spins on the spot and cuts a gash into the poor Goblin's stomach.

Things above aren't going quite so well. In the castle the Coco with the sword is struck by a stray crossbow bolt, lifting him off his feet and knocked backwards, his Carrot friend charges the responsible Goblin and stabs his head with his trident. While a lot of blood leaks from the wound, the damage dealt by this tiny carrot weapon is minimal, the spikes not large enough to penetrate deep into the head. It is probably quite painful though!

The shining Golden goblin does indeed take the poor Coco by surprise, his kick launching him far across the top of the ruin fort. It is rather unlucky that the Coco's trajectory path is likely to send him plummeting to his demise. Below this scene, the wounded Coco begins to make a slow recovery from both his head cut and the blunt trauma of hitting the ground, the heavier armoured knight tries to help him up. It is unlikely that this Coco will be much use in battle now.

The archer goblin pulls himself to his feet and stares forlornly at his head wound. As evidenced earlier by his act of hiding in a cooking bowl, despite his genetic conditioning for war he is secretly a bit of a coward.
Bloodaxe, with a significantly higher tolerance for combat, thrusts himself into a life-or-death situation for maybe the fifth or sixth time in a 36 hour period, snapping the carrot's flimsy trident in two with a swing of his knife.
Admittedly, a single small carrot is not the most fearsome foe he has faced today, whether or not it is wrapped in tin foil.

The wounded goblin continues toppling to his death, soon to splatter on one of the pieces of shattered fortress. The other goblins on that island aren't really faring much better. It's not a very goblin-friendly island.

Up top the golden goblin moves to peer over the edge, where he can hear voices. Unfortunately a stray bolt pierces the incredibly soft and light metal of his hammer and sends it spinning into the distance. What a pain!
Admittedly it probably wouldn't be able to deliver much more force than even his bare hands, but now he looks far less intimidating.

Unsure what to do now that the fact his weapon has been obliterated by a rather angry green man, the Carrot does what any sane sentient vegetable would do. That is, charge head first and jump at your foe with the intention of piercing them with your spiky helmet. While given time to think of possible outcomes this tactic might seem a bit reckless, to a Carrot who has a split second to decide between picking up an oversized sword or jumping at an enemy, it is fairly easy to justify his choice. Not that anyone could guarantee its effectiveness.

The Coco behind him takes the time he now presumably has to rip the crossbow bolt out of himself and pick up his sword. Whilst he looks sort of like a tough guy, it is pretty evident the pain caused by the huge projectile is going to affect his ability to fight.

Below this the Chakram Coco realises how ridiculous it is two carry two chakrams almost the size of yourself in a small hallway, and puts one away. He proceeds to swiftly walk to the left to see what is going on upstairs, it sounds like fighting! His friend is too preoccupied shooting arrows at a shiny fellow to notice the ruckus behind him.

Unable to really do much where he is, the heavily armoured knight Coco decides to pull his comrade further into the fortress. The reasons for this are mainly so that the golden goblin doesn't look down and see him, but also so he doesn't get hit by the numerous objects and individuals falling down that gap.

Having finished all the Goblins down below, the Barreller begins to transport the Grand Knight and Ex-Mage Coco. They intend to reinforce the castle above if indeed there are any enemies to fight up there.

In a move that probably annoys the archer immensely, the golden goblin decides to pursue his weapon rather than charge empty-handed towards an enemy sniper. His concentration on retrieving the half-useless shiny lump is so intense that he doesn't even notice the other two Coco's, striking a dramatic pose as he is reunited with his hammer.
The Goblin sniper manages to pull himself out of his misery and starts to load another shot, though he doesn't really have a clear aim from here.

Bloodaxe meanwhile also returns to a past acquaintance, though his reunion with the hard stone floor is a less joyous one. The carrot probably wouldn't usually even nudge him from a standing position, but as he'd been in mid-stride with no feet on the ground the impact made him lose his balance and smack back into the stone blocks below.
In anger he kicks the carrot high into the air, not the most dignified move but still fairly satisfying.

Seeing his Carrot friend propelled through the air, the wounded Coco decides that he isn't going to let these green idiots send any more Cocos airborne. In an act which to many would seem dishonourable and outright dastardly, the Coco stabs Bloodaxe in his rather unfortunately unprotected crotch. Of course the Coco doesn't actually know anything about Goblin body parts, so this attack to him is perfectly fine.

His friend in the lower levels notices the other Goblin aiming his crossbow, in a bid to distract him he shouts obscenities at the green fellow. He hopes that the Goblin's temper will get the better of him and cause him to reply, buying whoever he is aiming at some time. (Here's hoping he isn't aiming at one of his fellow Goblins due to some argument or something!)

The Heavy knight Coco sees the Golden individual and walks towards him.
"Oy you, you big gold menace. I have unfinished business with your stupid face"
It is evident the Coco is pulling out all his incredible insults on this poor Goblin.

To some, the Coco's abortive attempts at insulting the goblin may have seemed childish and ineffective, but it is important to remember the average intelligence levels of the species we are talking about here.
Warrior goblins are born to fight, not to think. The Coco managed to pick one of the few targets that would interpret its embarrassing epithets as mortally offensive, and respond in kind.
"I'll make ye wish you'd never been spawned, you big ugly orange!!!"

Filled with righteous anger, the gold-armoured goblin makes a daring leap across the pointless gap characteristic of goblin dwellings, though his lack of any actual athletic skill and the unwieldiness of his shiny armour leave him falling a little short.

[Image: 0018.png]
The coco's laughs don't last long however, while he missed his intended target the golden goblin does manage to give the platform he was standing on a good whack. The already-weakened mortar crumbles and the floor caves in, sending the Coco tumbling towards his enraged and physically superior foe. Perhaps if the goblin finally drops his useless prop weapon he might actually win this yet.

Upstairs, the investigative goblin is unfortunately unaware of the warriors speeding towards him from below.
"'Ere boss! This stuff's all broken already!
I figure it probably got shook up in the explosion and they wrecked it, stupid buggers."


The goblin archer who's meant to be Bloodaxe's backup is predictably startled by hurled insults from a hole in the ground and jumps backwards in surprise, losing his aim.
"Boss! There's more of them coming from down this tunnel here! What shall I do?"

Neither of them receive replies. Bloodaxe isn't listening right now.
It is an unfortunate fact of goblin biology that despite the fact that they have reproduced without the need for any kind of sexual relationship for many millions of years, there still exists in all goblins a particularly sensitive and vulnerable weak spot. Somewhere that you would, for example, absolutely never want someone to insert a sharp object.
Biting down on his own tusks, vision swimming in and out of focus as he rocks from side to side on the ground but afraid to make any larger movements in case something shifts, Bloodaxe is in no condition to be giving orders.

What a low blow.

The Coco who stabbed Bloodaxe has apparently beaten his opponent, rather than use his current weapons (a tiny sword and an arrow) he opts to steal the rather large blade from his fallen foe, it's not like he has the strength left to stop him. With new weapon in hand the Coco bravely charges at the Crossbow Goblin, leaping through the air with the oversized sword. His friends below him take their time getting up that dumb dirt hill.

Not in a sensible enough position to attack, the falling knight Coco instead decides to use the javelin sticking out of the golden Goblin's head to slow his landing. He grips the shaft, (har har) swinging down in front of the goblin and releasing his grip to propel himself behind the golden idiot. If this had been anyone else the weight of the knight pulling on a javelin stuck in their head would deal immense pain, but it is doubtful this rather special brand of Goblin feels much at all.

It's clear to even someone with basically no engineering experience that there's no way that any of this machinery is ever going to do anything ever again.
"This is all junk, ain't the boss going to be upset?"
The goblin makes no move to climb back up the hole though, it's both cramped and high in the air. He's not quite sure how he's going to manage that at all and doesn't fancy giving the other exit a go either.

The boss himself, keeping his eyes kept tightly shut, reaches down gingerly to try and remove all the sharp objects from his... body. At least he's alive right? The coco didn't stab him with his own knife while he was defenceless, that would have been a terrible way to die.
Nobody's going to get anything done with him lying on the floor, he just has to... pull... very carefully...

The coco that subjected Bloodaxe to this particular indignity is stopped short in mid-air by a crossbow bolt, the heavy bolt's momentum as it drives itself into his hat just about overcoming the force behind his leap. The archer has no time to celebrate, there are more cocos below and he knows he almost certainly isn't going to have time to reload before they reach him. That was perhaps the last shot he's ever going to take.

The golden goblin isn't doing too well either. He barely feels a thing as another blade pierces his face but this is perhaps a cause for concern rather than something to be pleased about. On its own the blow probably wouldn't be much problem at all but these things have a tendency to add up.
His arm shakes as he tries to lift his mace again and when he speaks his words are slurred.
"'mgonnna get'you. Lil' orange devils. 'splace is ours! Kill all'a'yer..."
At this point few things could really be further from the truth.

So after looking on the Freeforums, I realised that the Match's 2 Year Anniversary was 8 Days ago.  :toot:

If I'd have noticed that I probably would have made a turn for when it got to year 2 :(

I'll have one up in the next few days probably.

Re: It's About Time! - Chocobo VS. Metal Chao [New Forum Edition]

I wasn't late, trust me.

[Image: cocomedi77.png]

The Coco with the Chakrams finally makes his way to the level of the castle with nasty green men on. Fortunately for him there is one standing right there (the one he shouted rude words at earlier) who is looking sort of sorry for himself. Taking advantage of this fact, he throws one of his Chakrams into the poor fellow's stomach.

Having had enough of the silly gold individual's antics, the knight decides to attempt to deal a finishing blow. Not worrying for his safety (a goblin near death mumbling threats whilst evidently being able to do little in the way of actual fighting isn't exactly very scary) the Coco charges forward and using two hands, lodges his axe into the goblin's chest. The gold armour softens the blow a bit, but the strike still reaches flesh.

Meanwhile, the barreller and his passengers reach an adequate height to begin their reclaiming of the floating castle. The worker Goblin doesn't look particularly threatening, so Dracoco uses him as a platform to grand access past the large wooden wreckage before him. He is pretty sure the Goblin won't do much whilst there is a wood-clad Coco with a mace and sword staring directly at him.

Re: It's About Time! - Chocobo VS. Metal Chao [New Forum Edition]

We're real good at this
[Image: 0020.png]
The terrified tinker tries to back under the remains of his wonderful flying machine in terror, barely paying attention to the guy stood on his head. Maybe if he gets all the way underneath they will forget him and leave him alone.
The goblin on the floor beneath manages to clamber back into the too-small corridor and moves along it in a crouch. What the hell is everyone else doing up there?
Bloodaxe notices more Cocos passing him by and keeps very still. He's in a fairly compromising position right now.
The crossbowman coughs out a bit of blood and backs himself towards the crashed ship. He's got one shot still and there's only two of them. If he can just kill that last Coco in one shot then the walking vegetable behind him shouldn't put up that much of a fight even if he himself is weakened, right? And even if he's armoured, the Coco is virtually all head so it will be hard not to hit something vital. He's already forgotten that there's still an archer lurking on the floor below.

The only goblin anywhere else in the ruined plain finally succumbs to blood loss from his last wound, losing his grip on his warhammer and slowly toppling forwards onto his killer. Hopefully he'll be able to shift the corpse off in time to hop up to where his friends are, and before all the rest of the fighting is over.
It might not be all that long now!

Re: It's About Time! - Chocobo VS. Metal Chao [New Forum Edition]

What you guys perceive as slow is actually very fast to myself and Chao.
[Image: cocomedi78.png]
The Chakram Coco takes out his magic hidden Chakram, which he stored in his bottomless pockets earlier on, and prepares to throw it at the Goblin Crossbower. Unfortunately for the green man, a sword belonging to Dracoco erupts from his chest, negating the need for any contemplating of next actions the goblin might wish to further pursue.

The Barreller gets in closer to the scared looking Goblin after his ex-mage friend uses the same Green-man-head transport system as Dracoco. He doesn't particularly want to kill this fellow but he contributed to the death of Cocos so despite how terrified he may look now, he could still likely do some damage.

The Golden Green man flops to the floor, the weight of his grasp on the hammer bending the useless material he made it out of. It might have been comical if it weren't so depressingly pathetic. Honestly, what sort of loser makes armour out of gold?

The bowgoblin just sort of flops over as he dies, dropping his weapon onto the floor and leaning back onto his killer.
His weapon doesn't even have the decency to fire on its own and coincidentally kill someone! The ammunition just clatters out onto the ground as it lands, what a letdown.

The goblin trapped in the crawlway below (probably actually a walkway, but designed for someone half his height) is fed up of being stuck and flips the wooden flying machine out of his path, or at least makes a convincing attempt. He doesn't really achieve anything except knocking over a coco and the mechanic, but at least it was a good outlet for some of that aggression. Probably gives his position away though.

Bloodaxe makes one last heroic tug.

Seeing his friend about to fall off the edge of the castle, the Barreller pilot decides to ditch his relatively useless stone sword so that he can catch the unfortunate falling Coco. He flies upwards and grips the staff, moving closer to the goblin contraption should the mage Coco lose his grasp on the weapon.
"Thanks mate, can't say I fancied falling down there"

The Archer Coco hears some sounds from down the hall from where he is, he peaks around the stairs to see another Goblin taking out his anger on some bits of wood, he calls out to his peers to alert them of the Goblin's presence and moves himself to the side of the stairs so that he can take aim on the raging green man.

Seeing a downed, and rather beefier looking Goblin, Dracoco Concludes that this must be the Leader that has been causing his soldiers so much trouble. Not particularly remembering the Goblin's name, or even sure if he's been told it, Dracoco simply chooses the most definable feature of the fellow to communicate with him.
"On your legs, Eyebrows. Wipe those tears from your face and let's end this!"
Dracoco instructs his soldiers to stay out of the fight, not being one for unfair battles. (Perhaps it is pride or ignorance that makes him think he would match the strength of a Goblin Warchief...Luckily, however, this one has had an unfortunate accident)

The other Cocos obey their Leader's command. One watches the fight, whilst the Carrot goes in search of an access to the lower levels so that he can take out, or at least attempt to take out, the remaining threat.

Somehow, Bloodaxe finds his way to his feet. He's a little woozy from blood loss but Goblins have a lot of blood, so it's hopefully not enough to hamper his judgement.
"Those weren't tears, I was just bleeding from my eyes on account of seeing your face!"
(Little buggers probably don't know the difference right? Many as we killed I ain't entirely sure they bleed much.)

Despite his bravado this is shaping up to be the last, final, ultimate stand of the goblins. The tinker has already well resigned himself to his fate, going limp and pretending he'll be mistaken for a corpse. His other minion gives a loud yell to discover a corpse and a carrot on his climb out of the shaft, but in such a vulnerable position it also seems somewhat unlikely that he'll overpower all of the remaining troops and save the day. Especially without a free hand to draw his weapon.
There will be no help from those quarters.

Swaying slightly and still totally in full control of his mental faculties, Bloodaxe flashes his enemy a particularly vulgar salute.
"If you want to duel a wounded man on your own... be my guest! I can take all of you cabbages down!"
