Hmm I wrote a fanfic and needed help with errors since I only know AC stuff.

It won't fit :D

Any ideas?

Finally figured it out...

Chapter 1

Sir Arek: What is this news you have for me?

Daos: Sir Arek, our contact in Aleyn has informed us that the pests are having a ship built.

Sir Arek: And? You come to me with news of a boat?

Daos: Yes, sir. You see from the port town of Aleyn the main currents run east to Narcysus and north to Gruberik. My concern is that....

Sir Arek: The Ancient Cave! I see....

Daos: Sir, Gades has told us there are weapons and equipment exceeding even the power of his prized blade in this place. I have devised a plan combining the power of this "Providence" Gades has retrieved along with a new technology of which we have just recently become aware. This should not only allow us to prevent them from entering the cave, but we could possibly even control the cave's treasures and powers for ourselves.

Sir Arek: Why have I not yet heard of this discovery?

Daos: My apologies, Sir, but our agents on Forfeit Island have just... <ahem> won a new technology from an inventor's apprentice called a "save state." With this save state we can enter the Ancient Cave at the 99th floor, which, as local legend has it, is the final floor. This final floor holds the Master of the Ancient Cave who will surely hand over to us the power of the Ancient Cave and it's secrets if defeated.

Sir Arek: How easily will this Master be defeated?

Daos: Sir, very little is known about him, although it is said that he will allow any party of four or less that enters his chamber a chance to challenge him in a very limited amount of time.

Sir Arek: Good, then you should not need much. I do not want to extend ourselves into such trifling matters. I'm sure your power and spells will be enough to defeat this supposed Master.

Daos: Sir, I wish to request an alternative plan. I'm not sure if we'll get another shot at this and I do not want to fail you, Sir. One of the humans wields a personal blade with a devastating attack that should bring the Master to his knees. From there I will easily be able to finish him off.

Sir Arek: Amazing a human has access to a weapon with such power.

Daos: Indeed sir, although it is not normally so powerful. Any of our Goblins may wield it, but it is it's IP attack which only this human may unlock that is the key to our success.

Sir Arek: I'm sure it will be a simple feat to trick a feeble-minded human into our plan.

Daos: Yes, Sir. Especially this human!!!

Chapter 2

Scene: The pub in Aleyn. A girl in fine, yet tattered clothes walks in.

::: Approaches Dekar :::

Dekar: ...so these Mega Cyclops both got down on their knees, and they were like begging me for mercy!

::: Pub-goers roar with laughter :::

Bartender: How about something with a little kick this time, Dekar?

Dekar: Only the finest natural ingredients for this hittin' bod :::kisses biceps::: How about another Apple Cider?

:::Girl approaches the bar:::

Girl: Are you the greatest warrior, Dekar?

Dekar: Well hello little lady. As a matter of fact I am.

Girl: I have been searching for you!! Please, I need your help! Only a warrior with your strength can help me!

Dekar: Now slow down, slow down. We've got all night. Why don't you tell me what you need?

Girl: My father is trapped in a cave and is being held against his will! I have found a warp point that will take us right to him, but I need you to defeat his captor!

Dekar: Another guy trapped in a cave? Sheesh!

Girl: What?

Dekar: Never mind. Let me go ask....

Girl: No! I only need you! Only one person can warp down into the cave!

Dekar: Only one, huh? Listen, I'm headed out in just a day or two and....

Girl: Well I guess if you can't handle it...

Dekar: WELL OF COURSE I CAN HANDLE IT! Shouldn't take too long I guess. Lemme go tell Guy where I'm going.

Girl: No! Please we must go now! We haven't a second to lose! :::Grabs the hilt of Dekar's blade:::

Dekar: (swatting her hand away) Just back off a sec - I don't like girls touching my equipment!

:::hush falls over room:::

Dekar: Uhhh...what I mean is....I mean I LIKE girls...

Chapter 3

Exiting pub

Girl: What did that guy give you in there?

Dekar: Oh, he was just checking my equipment. He let me borrow his Muscle Ring.

Girl: Okay, let's go! :::uses Warp:::

:::Girl and Dekar appear in Gruberik:::

:::enter Inn:::

Girl: Dekar, I'd like you to meet my brothers David and Gus. Guys, this is the greatest warrior in the land! Dekar!

Brothers: WOO HOO!

Dekar: So, you guys here to wish me luck? Like I need any...

David: Actually, we're accompanying you to help rescue our father!

Dekar: :::puzzled - turns to Girl::: I thought you said only one could warp down?

Girl: Uhh..

David: Right! But we've since figured out we could warp down more!

Dekar: Well no offense, but I don't need the extra help. Kinda crimps my style y'see.

Girl: No! It has to be all of you!

Dekar: What exactly is going on here?

Girl: Well uhh...well we heard you had trouble finding your way out of caves on occasion.

Dekar: :::rubbing the back of his neck::: Oh... that. Well come on guys, back me up and heal me if need be!

:::Gus grabs sack of items:::

:::David activates save state:::

:::Dekar, David, and Gus appear on level 99 of the Ancient Cave:::

Dekar: Whoa! What was that?

David: Never mind! Up there on that platform! That is where we will face this evil being!

Dekar: :::looking around::: So where exactly is your fath...

David: Quiet! Let's go!

:::Dekar leaps up steps with brothers following behind:::

Master Jelly: Are you ready to fight?

David: Yes! Bring it on!

Dekar: Wait...just a sec.

David: What?!

Dekar: Well since he's giving us the chance, I want to make sure I look good while chopping this guy into a million jelly bits. :::primping hair:::

David: You've got to be kidd...

Master Jelly: Go ahead and show yourself Daos. There is no use in trying to deceive the Master. Fight me as your true self.

Dekar: Whaaa?!?!?! :::hops down off platform - backing away::: I KNEW something was fishy here!

:::Gus approaches Dekar:::

:::Dekar throws shoulder block into Gus splattering bottles and vials of items all over the floor as Gus is revealed to be Nosferatu:::

:::Dekar frantically stomping items:::

:::David unmasks as Daos:::

David: You blue-haired fool! You think I would trust our Providence to anyone other than myself?!

Dekar: Your what?

Daos: I will control you AND your stupid blade! :::Daos summons Red Dragon::: Prepare to cast your spell my pet!

:::Dekar quickly sheaths his Dekar Blade and unsheaths Beserk Blade - gripping it with both hands:::

Daos: WHAT?! Nosferatu! Use your Curselifter!

Nosferatu: But Sir.... :::looking at shattered glass all over the floor:::

Daos: Then cast Curselifter!

Nosferatu: But Sir....it's not a spell!

Daos: ARRRRGH! GET HIM!

:::Dekar leaps up onto platform alone:::

Dekar: I am ready to fight!

Master Jelly: Very well. Let's regain our strength!

:::The rest of the room is frozen in time as the Master initiates the battle with Dekar:::

:::Dekar defends:::

Master Jelly: It has been a long time since I've had a battle. Why will you not challenge me?

Dekar: I....I :::gritting teeth::: I submit to your power.

Master Jelly: It is true. No single being can defeat me. But I so want to be challenged.

Dekar: If you show me back to the surface, I vow to return with my friends and we shall destroy you!

Master Jelly: A-ha! Hahahahahaha! I cannot be destroyed, but I so enjoy your confidence! If you and your friends can defeat me in battle, I will shower you with treasures. I shall release you from the cave if you swear to hold to your word.

Dekar: I swear it!

Master Jelly: Attacks himself and Dekar for 5 HP damage. We're outta here!

:::Master Jelly and Dekar disintegrate:::

Time resumes.

Daos: NOOO! What just happened?!

:::Nosferatu sneers:::

Daos: You fools have cost me! COST ME!

:::Daos uses Providence for himself - appears at Ancient Cave exit and casts Warp:::

:::Dekar appears at Ancient Cave exit:::

Man: Congratulations! You have survived the Ancient Cave! Now you can return to town with your head held high!

Dekar: Sure. Thanks, buddy. Say, do they sell warps in town?

Man: You betcha!

Dekar: How about Curselifters?

Man: What lifters?

Dekar: :::sighing::: Crap.
