I made a yahoo pool-related spoof for lotht...
« on: July 29, 2007, 07:31:25 PM »
Figured I'd share it. It's nothing you guys would likely recognize because I use names of players I play with a lot, but meh, it's an effort.

Also, note: MOST of the time, all caps = Olmec's counterpart, Blackball. aaaaand... Um... It kinda sucks and the text can be annoying, but like I said. First effort ;/

Legends of the Hidden YPool Lobby!
*giant talking 8ball*: With your guide... Cubby!

*swings down via a pole resembling a cuestick* AND HERE HE IS NOW!

Thank you everybody, thank you guys, and thank you Blackball. Welcome to Legends of the Hidden YPool Lobby. The rooms are filled with lost treasures, that are protected by mysterious obvious aimers. Only blackball knows the story behind each treasure hidden inside... What one will we be hearing about, today?

THE MISSING RULER OF RYRY THE ICEMAN.

Ahh the missing ruler of Ryry the Iceman. Alright the legend is set, now let's see who will be going into Blackball's Temple in search of the Missing Ruler. Will it be...

The Red Runners? *MJ and Neo go crazy*

The Blue Brits? *Roy and Jan raise hands, require WD-40*

The Green Masters? *Spanky and Drew stop kissing, wave, kiss again*

The Orange Outlaws? *Jamie and Kevin raised arms yelling some weird warcry*

The Purple Pals? *Bam and Trustneo give high-5's*

Or The Silver Shots? *Tony and Craig do some weird secret handshake*

They'll have to pass some pretty tough physical and mental challenges to go onto the Temple in search of the Ruler, but first they'll have to clear a table, and Blackball is going to tell us how they'll have to do that this time.

YOU MAY MOVE THE CUEBALL BEFORE YOU SHOOT. PRESS SPACE TO SHOOT. THE FIRST MEMBER WILL CLEAR 7 BALLS, AND THE 2ND MEMBER WILL CLEAR THE REMAINING 8. AFTER YOU'VE FINISHED CLEARING YOUR TABLE, RUN OVER AND HIT THE RESET BUTTON. THE FIRST FOUR TEAMS TO COMPLETE THEIR TABLES AND HIT RESET, WILL GO ON!

Alright teams are you ready? *all: YEAHHHHHHHHHHH* Blackball are you ready? EZ, OBV! Alright teams on your mark, get set, GO!

And MJ and Neo are off to a hot start, MJ broke and made THREE balls, only nees 4 more! OH Jamie missed a railer, still got some work to do. Roy hasn't broke yet, he's stiff as a board... MJ's done it's Neo's turn! He quickly knocks down a pair! Spanky is trying to shoot with one hand while still holding and kissing Drew and it just isn't working... Silver Shots are making good progress... Neo's on his last ball... He makes it! We've got our first team! Out of nowhere the Purple Pals are almost done... There goes their last ball, we've got 2 teams now! Who else? looks like the Silver Shots are about done... Craig one more... NICE BANK! And that'll do it on their end, we've got three... And here comes Kevin... THAT'S FOUR! Great job guys! An outstanding run contest, and going on to the Steps of Knowledge are the Red Runners! *MJ and Neo hug and dance around*

Also, the Orange Outlaws! *Jamie and Kevin fistpump*

The Purple Pals! *bam raises a fist, trustneo does a little dance*

And The Silver Shots! *Tony and Craig jump up and down slapping 5's*

The Blue Brits and The Green Masters gave it a good effort, they're not going away empty-handed. We've got a great gift for them, and here's what it is:

IT'S A MYLEAGUE GOLD MEMBERSHIP! ENJOY DOUBLE THE BUX FROM TOURNEYS AND OTHER COOL FIND PLAYER FEATURES! MYLEAGUE GOLD MEMBERSHIP, FROM CASE'S!

Alright now it's time for Blackball to tell us all about The Legend of The Missing Ruler of Ryry the Iceman, but pay attention teams as your knowledge of the legend could bring you one step closer to entering Blackball's Temple.

THE MOST OBVIOUS RULER-USER IN THE WORLD OF YAHOO POOL, WAS RYRY THE ICEMAN. ONE DAY, WHILE RUNNING AND PLAYING A TOURNAMENT IN PRO, HE STUMBLED ACROSS AN INTERESTING TECHNIQUE.

"Hey, I can't play and host at the same time, it's too hectic! Wait, I know! I'll use a ruler so I don't have to spend as much time shooting, and more time hosting!"

SO HE OPENED UP HIS DESK DRAWER, AND PULLED OUT A PLASTIC 12-INCH RULER HE HAD STOLEN FROM THE SCHOOL LIBRARY. THE RESULTS WERE AMAZING. HE NEVER MISSED A SINGLE SHOT ALL TOURNEY, AND WENT ON TO WIN EFFORTLESSLY. THEN THERE WAS A KNOCK ON HIS DOOR.

"Ryan, are you going to bed, soon?" HIS MOM YELLED.

"Yes Mom, I will be in a moment!" HE TURNED AROUND TO GRAB HIS MOUSE, BUT HIS ARM PUSHED THE RULER OFF HIS DESK, AND OUT THE NEARBY WINDOW. HE LOOKED DOWN IN THE DARKNESS, BUT COULD NOT FIND HIS UTENSIL. LEGEND HAS IT THAT A STRAY CAT CAME BY, PICKED UP THE RULER, AND BOUNDED OFF TO THE TEMPLE WITH IT. YOUR JOB IS TO FIND THE MISSING RULER OF RYRY THE ICEMAN.

Great, Blackball. Now where can the Ruler be found?

THE MISSING RULER OF RYRY THE ICEMAN CAN BE FOUND IN THE SHRINE OF THE SILVER LADDERMONKEY.

Alright teams, before you are ancient markings. In a moment Blackball will begin asking questions about the Legend of the Ruler. If you think you know the answer, stomp down on the marking. If you answer correctly, you may move down a step. The first 2 teams to reach the bottom step will move on to the Temple Games. Everyone understood? Alright. Blackball, we're ready for your first question.

IN WHAT INTERLEAGUE DID-*Tony rings in* "PRO!"

THAT IS CORRECT! Alright Silver Shots move down. Blackball keep going.

THE RULER OF RYRY THE ICEMAN WAS-*Neo rings in* 12 inches!

THAT WAS NOT ONE OF THE THREE CHOICES. WAS STOLEN FROM-*Tony rings in again* The School Library!

THAT IS CORRECT! Already the Silver Shots are one step away from going to the Temple Games! Blackball, next question.

HOW MANY INCH-*MJ rings in* 12 inches!

THAT IS CORRECT! Got it this time... alright the Red Runners are on the board now, on the 2nd step. Still time for the others to catch up. next question...

HOW MANY SHOTS DID RYRY THE ICEMAN MISS WHI-*Tony again* None!

THAT IS CORRECT! Silver Shots step down you're going to the Temple Games! *Tony and Craig high-5* alright still room for one more team, still a close match, Blackball?

WHAT ELSE WAS RYRY THE ICEMAN DOING WHILST PLAYING? WAS HE... HOSTING A TOURNAMENT, LOOKING AT PORN, OR BURNING A CD? *jamie stomps down, misses, so Neo rings in* Hosting a Tourney!

THAT IS CORRECT. Awesome Red Runners step down just one answer away... Blackball, keep going.

WHAT ANIMAL-*MJ once more* A stray cat!

THAT IS CORRECT! Alright Red Runners step down, we have our two teams going to the Temple Games! The Red Runners... And The Silver Shots! *crowd cheers* Purple Pals and The orange Outlaws did a good job though, they won't go away empty-handed, we've got a nice gift for them and here's what it is:

A YAHOO! GAMES ALL-STAR ACCOUNT! PLAY IN LADDER ROOMS, CUSTOMIZED LEAGUES, PLAY 9-BALL AND NAME TABLES! A YAHOO! GAMES ALL-STAR ACCOUNT, COURTESY OF YAHOO!

These 2 teams will duke it out for the right to enter Blackball's Temple, find out who when we come back!

**********************************************************************

Hey welcome back to Legends Of The Hidden YPool Lobby! We've got MJ and Neo of the Red Runners and it says here Neo that you are going onto better things very soon.

"Yeah uh... I just feel burnt out, sick of shit n all, y'know?"

Great and MJ I understand that you don't like teamers.

"Not really I mean it's just crappy relying on others. I only play teams in inters now."

Alright and over here we have Tony and Craig of the Silver Shots! And Tony you were just made an MLP Admin. How's that going for ya?

"Great, but the season hasn't started yet. I'm very excited though!"

Congratulations to you, and here we have Craig Mitchell, Craig I hear that you don't talk much.

"..."

Alright so MJ and Tony, why don't you go get set for the 2nd temple game, Neo and Craig go over there for the 1st one. In these games players will be competing for cueballs of life, *holds one up* that will be used to fend off the dreaded Obvious Aimers. There are 3 games to be played here, the first one is for a half cueball of life and Blackball is gonna tell us about it.

RYRY THE ICEMAN USED A RULER IN HIS PRO TOURNAMENT. WHAT YOU MUST DO IS PUT TOGETHER PIECES OF YOUR OWN RULER. WHEN CUBBY GIVES THE SIGNAL, RUN OVER TO THE BOARD, GRAB THE PIECE OF RULER, AND BRING IT BACK TO THE OTHER SIDE. THE FIRST PERSON TO PUT ALL 6 PIECES TOGETHER, OR THE ONE FURTHEST ALONG AFTER 60 SECONDS... WINS.

Alright let's put 60 seconds on the clock please. *timer shows up* MJ and Tony are you ready? On your marks, get set, GO!

This game is so tough because you have to take a couple trips to get enough momentum to get to the board! But after that it's free swinging until the transition. Both teams are even right now at 1, virtually neck and neck! OH and Tony dropped the 2nd one, he'll have to stop and pick it up! Meanwhile MJ is already on his 3rd, and now he's gotta switch over to the 2nd board of ruler pieces. Tony's got his situation fixed, going back for his 3rd... MJ just got number 4... Tony really has to catch up here! MJ gets his 5th, just one more left! Aaaaand that's it!

Well, Tony ran into a little problem there early on and it cost him. MJ didn't however and got all 6 pieces of the ruler put together here, so the Red Runners get the half cueball of life! So that gives the Red Runners a half cueball, the Silver Shots have no cueball, but the next game is worth a half cueball... Blackball tell us about it.

TO PLAY AND HOST A LARGE INTERLEAGUE TOURNAMENT, YOU MUST BE STRONG AND ABLE TO ENDURE PRESSURE. BEFORE YOU ARE TWO LOGS SUSPENDED HORIZONTALLY. WHEN CUBBY GIVES THE SIGNAL, THOSE LOGS WILL BEGIN TO SPIN AROUND. HOLD ON TIGHTLY, AND DON'T LET GO. THE LAST PLAYER REMAINING ON THEIR LOG... WINS.

Okay guys... Silver Shots can catch up here let's put 60 seconds on the clock. Hold on tight guys... Ready... Get Set... Spin 'em!

And here we go, rooooound and roooound they go! Who will hold on the longest? Will they BOTH hold on? 10 seconds have gone by, Craig and Neo still holding on tight! Ohh and now they switch directions here, a little adversity! Neo's slipping! Craig's got those feet locked together pretty tight! They change directions again just 20 seconds left aaaand OH that's it! Stop the logs! Aha.. OK guys come on over here. Neo JUST touched the ground with his hand trying to grab back on, Craig stayed on... That means the Silver Shots get the half cueball of life! ...And that gives the Red Runners a half, the Silver Shots have a half, we're all tied, and the next game is worth a FULL cueball of life. Blackball tell us about it.

RYRY THE ICEMAN BEAT FOUR CONSECUTIVE PLAYERS AFTER PULLING OUT HIS RULER ON HIS WAY TO WINNING THE TOURNAMENT. YOU WILL ALSO BEAT FOUR PLAYERS. WHEN CUBBY GIVES THE SIGNAL, LOAD A CUEBALL INTO THE SLINGSHOT AND KNOCK DOWN ONE OF THE FOUR PILLARS. AFTER YOU SHOOT, IT'LL BE YOUR PARTNER'S TURN. THE FIRST TEAM TO KNOCK DOWN ALL 4 PILLARS, OR THE TEAM FURTHEST ALONG AFTER 60 SECONDS... WINS.

Aaaaaalrighty then. Teams get in position, and load your first shot... This is for the Temple... On your marks... Get set... GO!!!!

First shot and Tony knocks down one! 1-0 Shots early here... Now the Runners get one of theirs! Now can they change aim and get another? 45 seconds here... Oh Shots sailed one into the Temple! Still neck and neck here with 30 seconds! Neo's got another one! Can the Shots catch up?! It's so tough here... MJ hit a 3rd Now Craig gets one! Next one down is key! 5 seconds gotta fire a prayer here! 2! 1! OHHHHHH JUST AT THE LAST SECOND! That one will count, teams come on over here... Red Runners got 1.. 2.. 3 pillars down... Silver Shots got one at the last second THEy have 1.. 2.. and 3 pillars knocked down. It's a tie that means they EACH get the full cueball of life! ...And also that gives each team a cueball and a half, that means we have a tie! Let's bring out the tiebreaker pedestal please!

*table replica is rolled out* Alright, in a moment Blackball will ask one final question. If you think you know the answer, hit the pocket-shaped buzzer in front of you. You'll then have 3 seconds to answer, and I must accept your first answer. If you miss, or run out of time, the other team goes on. All clear? Alright. Blackball, we're ready for your final question.

WHO KNOCKED ON RY-

Silver Shots it's you! Craig: "His mom."

THAT IS CORRECT! Wow! He said something and picked just the right time to do so! The Silver Shots are headed on to the Temple!!! *Craig and Tony headbutt each other and make weird noises*

Haha they're excited... Red Runners you gave it an excellent effort, you won't go away empty-handed we've got a great gift for you folks, and here's what it is:

IT'S 10,000 LADDERBUX! ENJOY GOING TO THE CASE'S STORE AND REDEEM THEM FOR TRADING CARDS, A PEN, OR CANDY! 10,000 LADDERBUX, FROM CASE'S LADDER!

Alright when we return the Siler Shots are headed into the Temple in search of the Missing Ruler of Ryry The Iceman! Don't go away!

*********************************************************************

Welcome back to Legends... The Siler Shots broke the tie and have earned the right to enter Blackball's Temple in search of the Missing Ruler of Ryry The Iceman, but first Blackball is going to give them a few hints to guide them on their way.

YOU COULD START BY GOING DOWN THROUGH THE EAST SIDE CAFE, AND INTO NICK'S POOL PARLOR. FIND THE DOOR THAT WILL OPEN, WHICH COULD PUT YOU IN THE LIGHT. REVEAL THE SPECIAL WHITE LIGHT, AND YOU COULD CHOOSE TO HEAD UP INTO MINNESOTA FATS, OR... STRAIGHT INTO DARKNESS. CRAWL THROUGH THE DARKNESS, AND YOU MAY BE HEADED INTO... THE CHAMPIONS ZONE. REACH INTO THE HOLES TO FIND THE KEY BUT BE CAREFUL, ONE OF THE TABLES COULD BE INHABITED BY THE SPIRIT OF A RIPPER. IF HE GRABS YOU, YOU'LL HAVE TO GIVE UP A CUEBALL. IN ADDITION, YOU COULD SIMPLY PLOW THROUGH THE ROCK WALL AND ENTER... THE REBEL'S LOFT. RIDE THE LIFT UP, AND YOU MAY BE HEADED INTO THE ROOM OF VICKI'S SECRET! FIND THE REAL PROFILE PHOTO, AND ENTER THE SHRINE OF THE SILVER LADDERMONKEY! WHERE YOU CAN GRAB THE RULER. ASSEMBLE THE STATUE, AND YOU MAY HEAD INTO THE SMOKING-CAR. PUNCH OPEN THE WINDOWS AND FIND THE KEY, AND JAM IT DOWN INTO ONE OF THE HOLES, WHICH WILL LEAD YOU INTO THE... ZEBRA COVE. ALIGN THE STONE COLUMNS TO FORM THE SHAPE OF A ZEBRA, SWING ACROSS THE POOL PARLOR, RACE THROUGH THE WALK OF LIFE, AND BACK TO THE TEMPLE GATES. THE CHOICES ARE YOURS AND YOURS ALONE! YOU WON ONE AND A HALF CUEBALLS IN THE TEMPLE GAMES. WHO IS GOING FIRST?

Craig: I am!

VERY WELL, CRAIG! THE TEMPLE IS INHABITED BY 3 OBVIOUS AIMERS ASSIGNED TO PROTECT THREE SPECIFIC ROOMS. IF THEY CATCH YOU, YOU MUST GIVE A CUEBALL. BUT BEWARE, IF YOU ARE CAUGHT WITHOUT A CUEBALL, YOU WILL BE TAKEN OUT OF THE TEMPLE, AND IT'LL BE TONY'S TURN TO ENTER AND TRY HIS LUCK. ALSO HIDDEN INSIDE THE TEMPLE IS THE OTHER HALF OF YOUR CUEBALL. IF YOU FIND IT, AND ARE CARRYING THE OTHER HALF WITH YOU, YOU WILL GAIN AN EXTRA LIFE! ONCE YOU RETRIEVE THE THE MISSING RULER, ALL OF THE DOORS WILL BE INSTANTLY UNLOCKED, AND THE OBVIOUS AIMERS WILL VANISH. BRING THE RULER BACK TO THE TEMPLE GATES WITHIN 3 MINUTES, AND YOU'LL BOTH BE HANDSOMELY REWARDED, AND HERE'S HOW!

THE INTERNET: READY REFERENCE SHEET! THE INTERNET READY REFERENCE SHEET LISTS CYBERSPACE TERMS FOR QUICK, EASY SEARCHING!

GRAB THE RULER BEFORE 3 MINUTES IS UP, AND YOU'LL GET A MULTIMEDIA CLEANING KIT! CLEAN CAMERAS, VIDEOS, GAMES AND MORE WITH THIS QUICK, EASY, STATE OF THE ART CLEANING KIT!

BRING THE RULER OUT OF THE TEMPLE BEFORE TIME IS UP AND YOU'LL BOTH BE HEADED TO ROYAL ORLEANS! ROYAL ORLEANS RESORT AND SPA IN NEW ORLEANS WILL TREAT YOU LIKE A KING, WITH VIEWS OF A BEAUTIFUL SUNSET AND FREE UNLIMITED GOLF! IT'S FUN FOR THE WHOLE FAMILY AT ROYAL ORLEANS!

Alright let's see if we can't send these Silver Shots to Royal Orleans. Let's put 3 minutes on the clock. Blackball remove your verifcation wall please. Alright Craig, on your mark... get set... GO!!!

There he goes up into the Temple! Which wall will he go up or down? He's going up into the Walk of Life. He'll have to find the right painting... OH IT'S RIZZO! HE'LL HAVE TO GIVE UP HIS PENDANT! Now a door opens... It'll send him down into the East Side Cafe! Will he find the door? Yes! He's headed into Nick's Pool Parlor! And immediately he finds the door to go In The Light! Wait he pointed back at something I think it might've been the other half cueball! Which one will reveal the white light here? No.. No... Not that one... THERE it is! Which way... He's going up into Minnesota Fats, where he'll have to make 3 shots on a real table OH NO THERE'S ANOTHER AIMER! Charlie takes him out of the Temple and there goes Tony! He's got some time to make up here and so little of the Temple cleared away... Right through the Cafe and the Parlor... And he's got the other half of the cueball! It was right on the actuator to open the door to go Into The Light! Now where? He's gonna ignore Minnesota Fats and run Straight Into Darkness! Will he ever find his way? I don't... Yes! He's into The Champions Zone! Gonna reach inside... OH NO! A ripper! He has to give up that cueball... Now did he find a key? No he's gonna plow through the wall into the Loft! Nice move! Now up the Ladder, instead of the elevator... No that won't work. Now into the elevator he's got a minute left! Come on Tony! Into the Room of Vicki's Secret! Can he find the real photo? He holds one up, that's not it. Next one... YES! He's into the Shrine! He can grab the Ruler! HE'S GOT IT! All of the doors are unlocked! 35 seconds! Through the Smoking-car! Waving smoke out of the way! Now up into Zebra Cove! He's got 20 seconds! Now he has to swin- NO he leaps all the way across! BRING ME THE RULER! DOWN THE STAIRS! 5 SECONDS! HE GOT IT! HE GOT IT! HE GOT THE RULER TO THE GATES WITH 3 SECONDS LEFT! They get everything! The Reference Sheet! The Cleaner! The trip to Royal Orleans! Oh they're HYPED about this! We gotta get out of here join us again for another great Legends of the Hidden YPool Room byebye!

Ha ha, interesting new sort of Legends fan fic.
Crazy, but that's how it goes.

You don't do nothing you don't wanna do
Be nothing phony about you
Keeping it real and do what you feel

Yeah, I've re-read it a coiuple times and the dialog can be really hard to follow, plus I should've explained some of the background behind it (the room names are named after ypool rooms)

I plan on trying my hand at some more traditional fics as well. Anyone have any pointers?

Just make a fic whichever way you feel comfortable.  But i like this spoof idea!

For some reason, now i'm wondering if we should make a 40-episode season a cyber spoof series of Legends, this has definetely got the idea in my head. (Y'know, like the way everyone made Season 4.)
If you have seen all 120 full episodes of Legends, copy and paste this into your profile for all to see.

Favorite episode: The Levitating Dog Leash of Nostradamus
Favorite season: Season 2, very closely followed by Season 3
Favorite team: Blue Barracudas
