*Special Agent Chameleon heads into Athens, drops the explosive device, sets the timer for a day, and sits back to wait*


Ahhh, vacations!

The Krylma Leader

*Special Agent Chameleon quickly teleports away, and watches a fairly large explosion go off in the exact centre of Athens*

Chameleon-That'll take some time to fix....

*Teleport out*


Ahhh, vacations!

[An individual who looks exactly like Link, waits for the explosion to die down, and then he walks over to right next to where the bomb was. He then incants.]

[[Restart]]

[Time flows backward, and it is now just before the bomb exploded.]

[[Unknown Spell Name]]

[The bomb transforms into a completely different type of bomb, disarmed. The Link-lookalike picks it up.]

[[Teleport]]

[He disappears in a puff of magic, with the bomb.]


Ahhh, vacations!

[The Link lookalike reappears, cursing, and does the Restart/????? combo. It then creates a field around Athens preventing any explosions inside.]


Ahhh, vacations!

Sorry, we're here to dissalow that last post. Here's why:

First and most importantly, this post breaks the "No One Post Solutions" rule.

Second, a spell with the title "Restart" should send Link all the way back to the beginning of a "game", thus meaning that other agents would have been around to stop his actions, and that KL could easily have planted this in another unknown location due to the random factor feature that any good villain with a background in text adventures has.

Third, unknown spells fall under the same category of randomly inventing weapons for a character to use, thus falling into a subsection of the "one post solution" rules.

Thank you for listening, and allowing Athens to continue to stay in rubble! Bye now!

All right, I accept those terms.

And by the way, "Restart" only restarts the "battle", for which reason it was used inappropriately anyway.

[Dylan dumps Continuity Bleach on the forum, fixing up the mess.]

[Next, the Link lookalike appears for a second time, looks around, and starts swearing. He then sees SMoB]

[NotLink] Uh-oh.

>Read paper
On the back of the paper are the words, "This space intentionally left blank."
On the front, it says:
"To my dearest shapeshifter, Knil:
"Please teleport to the scene of Athens' destruction, travel back in time to shortly before the explosion, and use the Myeh spell to prevent it from having happened. I hope Myeh will stop the bomb. If it doesn't, transform into something capable of withstanding the explosion.
"Yours etc., Zoner."

>Examine Paper
There is nothing unusual about this paper. It has writing on both sides.

>Xyzzy
A hollow voice says "Fool."

I'm not gonna ask everyone to change the last several posts based on this, but doesn't Dylan's sudden appearance and the use of continuity bleach *also* breach the one-post-solution rule?

No. He used the Continuity Bleach to remove my second post in this forum, which was the one-post solution. Athens is STILL thoroughly demolished and Link's double is pissed off that he failed to prevent this from having happened.

[Link enters and surveys the destruction. He walks over to SMoB]

[Link] Er, have you seen anyone who looks exactly like me around here?
