David West
David Nodded as Not!Devon gave his commands.
"Slin, Saya, Don't want to do this. Just Stand down before you force me to do something I don't want to do..." He warned as he pulled his Revolver out and took aim at the Drow and Siren.
For a moment, it seemed like his arm shook a little but he could regained his deadly aim and opened fire, 2 shots towards Slindis's leg and 1 for Saya's shoulder.

(Writer note: Basically I'm going to do this until I'm done moving n etc. We won't move forward in the arch until it is over, but I'll still be posting. So characters can join in this or not. Your choice. :D)

Riki & Kud.
Location: Corrupted Forest/Jungle | Corrupt Temple of Light | South America.
Time: Night.
Weather: Raging lightning & Light rain.

Before the whole group was confronted why the clones, the couple RIki & Kud were resting in an area separate from the group. They had thought it was a good idea to set up a tent near a scenic spot overlooking the area, though the clones were not the only problem that were around.

"Riki, is this the tent?" She asked, the two had obviously not had gone camping before in the wild, but they had set up a tent on a hill behind their school so they could test the water rocket they had made for a competition. "Ah yeah, that is it. Doesn't this remind you of that summer?" Riki asked a question back to her, Kud thought for a while but a energetic smile had appeared on her face.

"Ehehe, it does." She lightly chuckled. Riki was making a small fire to cook their food on, but a group of locals were spying upon the younger girl and eventually took action. They slowly crawled out from the foliage near them and gagged Kud, she couldn't say anything as she was scared for her life. The corrupted dark warriors of a nearby collected her in a bag before they jumped off the cliff and into a lake below it. The splash was the only thing Riki could hear.

Rushing towards the cliff the only thing he could see was a group of people running off with a bag. He came to the only conclusion, "Kud!" He yelled after the group. A angry scowl appeared on his face as he pulled out the gun but did not open fire due to the hostage. Riki did the only thing he could, he jumped off the cliff and fell into the lake hoping for the best. The only remains of them were an unopened tent and a small fire.

Riki crawled out of the lake and began to follow the kidnappers which were almost far away, but not too far. The anger from within Riki fueled his goal to get her back, but the tribes goal is the temple itself.


Dark Tomoya..
Location: Small Town | Alaska | USA.
Time: Early Morning.
Weather: Cold and cloudy.

Tomoya stood in the center of the town by a large bonfire, he hugged himself due to the cold as he ate some stew he found in one of the houses. The scythe he had used was good but broke after the last time he used it, yawning Tomoya threw the empty bowl into the bonfire. "This fire smells like chicken!" He yelled out loud. Surprisingly no villagers heard him or came out. Turning around Tomoya could only see the large bonfire made out of all the villagers as they were crackling like burnt chicken.

"Oh... that's right." He chuckled as he looked around at his handicraft. The houses were filled with the blood of their owners and even Tomoya was covered in the red liquid. "Time to move on... maybe a diner?" He laughed as he grabbed the sherif's car keys in his post and left the town quickly because the bonfire was spreading and eventually burning the whole village, leaving no evidence of the slaughter.

The car head south towards the center of America. Rock music started to play as Tomoya equipped a nice pair of sunglasses. "Nice..." He simply said before he sped off on the nearest highway.

"How perfect~"

Kurumu | Puce | Melethia | Rugal: Drop Group #4
vs.
Not!Slindis | Not!Teri

The Fake Teri balked at Rugal's burst of strength; and did her best to scuttle away from the truck that was Rugal. "Good God, how are you still living! Puce, do something, before he does something to us!"

Aftan | Alashi (Ella) | Altea | Akane | Cadolbolg | Devon | Ton Ton: Group #5
vs.
Not!Angelus | Not!Caim

Ton Ton hugged the lady as best as he could without gripping her breasts and said, "Thanks! I thought I was done for! I'm glad I'm not the only one who thinks something funny's going on here!"

That was the truth; but it became all the more apparent when the dragon's breath of fire expelled out onto the grass, the fireball destroying anything that touched it.

Not!Rugal!

After Caim cut off the Fake!Rugal's arm, and the fake bemoaned it's fate, everything hung in the air for but a moment, but the warrior called out, "FINISH HIM!"

That was enough for Teri to finally tip over the edge, and her ensemble of elementals, dog and sword went together for the final assault; with the blade of the divine sword dealing the coup d'tat via decapitation. After the fake's head hit the ground, her spell-creations slithered back to their mistress and surrounded her as she slumped to the ground and curled into a little ball.

The dog licked the girl's face before disappearing in a poof of light, the three water elementals blubbered in Aquan before returning to their respective water bottles and the sword saluted it's summoner before disappearing with the dog. However, despite not being physically hurt, the girl looked the worst from that battle.

Rugal
Rugal looked right in the imposters eyes as tried to think of anything that could prove she wasn't who she said she was.
"......Bruiser says that Next time, He's going after your whole damn family. And He'll make sure you get a front row seat and a DIY Manicure...." He flatly said, the normal Teri went mad at even the mere mention of Bruiser, so a imperfect copy wouldn't react as much.
He silently prayed this would work so they could worry about Melethia's condition.

Rugal

The fake Teri winced, and said, "Ew.... That's really messed up. Thanks, Rugal, I needed that. Look, just get away from me. I can't believe you even talked to him."

Despite the fact that the Fake was playing off the statement and being non-nonchalant, she clearly looked paniced at the sight of the man getting up and walking again. Her constant attempts to back up were no aid either.

Rugal
Rugal smiled as the imposters ruse was revealed.
"....Now, the Normal Teri would be a sobbing wreak right now..." He said as Puce and Kurumu saw though the fake's act.
".....Puce....No, Please....Don't look at me like that! How can you believe him over me!?" The copy pleaded, hoping to retain her cover.
Rugal merely walked over, towering over her size wise as he laid a hand on her shoulder.
".....I have one question: If you are a copy of Teri, can you use Cleric Magic?...My friend over there, Melethia, She needs help."
The imposter didn't even bother using the Tablet anymore "....Go to hel-URK!?!."
She was cut off by Rugal using his Slashing Aura to slit her throat, the body falling lifelessly to the side.
"...Puce, that's how you know I wasn't lying..." He answered as he walked back by Melethia's side.

bluerocker:
The A.IM Team

Despite the best efforts of Inuart and his Men, the Mech soon managed to push them back out of the building into the desert night.
Viscus had gotten the data he needed and was working on erasing all traces of his being there.
"Sir! I got an idea! That Turret! You break the ice on that, we might be able to use it!" one grunt said as the others began prepping X-Factor shots just in case they needed them.

Diablo1099:
Hmn, which one's Mr. T?

"Good thinking, soldier, now come with me! I'll defend your path to the turret!"

And defend he did, throwing waves of ice after the mech to slow it down some while the soldier made his way to the turret. The stuff was thick; so he (the soldier) began to attack at the turrets icy cover while Inuart continued to distract the mech.

bluerocker:
\O_O/

"SIR! YES! SIR!"
"Great! Just the thing I wanted to hear before I die!"

The Soldier did as he was told, chipping at the ice with a knife and was soon joined by several others.
The Mech itself was now out of the building and being sprayed in all directions with gunfire, having little to no effect.
The ice blasts DID slow it down though, but the operator took note of this and refocused on Inuart, opening fire with his twin RPG launchers.

Diablo1099:
"Oh gods, really?!"

AIM Soldiers

Inuart gulped as the missiles shot straight towards him, and decided that a good defense would be far more productive at the moment instead of offense. After all, he was just playing bait for his soldiers to be able to use the Turret. But this was where Inuart had the benefit of speed on his side of the conflict; and used that to his advantage. He would take his time in dodging about the machine, and trying to hit it from behind to loosen a bolt or some other related bit of machinery. That did not seem to affect the machine, but if anything; it allowed his magic to recharge between blasts. Realizing that his attacks would do nothing; Inuart leaped onto the mech, and landed on the top of the damn thing. He would have stabbed through the glass, but a jerk from the mech made him hold onto the thing for dear life.

David | Elena | Kud | Riki | Saya | Slindis: Drop Group #3
vs.
Not!Alashi | Not!Devon

Seemed the punch to Ella's face didn't phase or bother her, which seemed unusual but it only followed up with Ella trapping Slindis, and Devon saying more typical insults. But, David shot a bullet at Saya's shoulder which of course, depleted her shields for a bit, making the Siren ticked off more.

At that time, Saya was having her emotions surface, the tattoos and her eyes glowing more yellow, brighter. And of course, Saya wasn't holding back her anger .. she took advantage of it in fact for when Ella was flying down to strike Slindis- Saya was in the air with a very fierce expression, her body swayed with a leg stretched out.
"I've had enough, of YOUR BULLS***!!"

Ella was able to block in time crossing her arms, but the kick was strong. Made the succubus land with her legs sliding against the dirt, while Saya landed pulling out her pistol and began firing at Devon and Ella.
Despite that they were handling themselves, Saya was more then happy to contribute to these little chats they've been having.

"You guys just won't shut up, it's more annoying then anything on this god d*** planet. I'm going to be dancing in your chest cavity if you don't just shut the f*** up already." A few more shots were deflected, making Saya put away her pistol. Seems that wouldn't be enough to take care of these two.

She only did that though to let their guard down, as Saya then did a phaselock on Devon. He was floating in the air, arms and knees bent as his mind was sent to view the universe itself, the effects healing everyone in the party very slowly, enough so that Elena's cuts were slowly being healed too.
"I'll just start with you, because f*** you that's why." Saya wiped out her shotgun, and this shotgun was some rare loot she picked up. When she aimed, it shot 6 barrel rounds at the same time which hit Devon, though it didn't hurt him very much.

Ella just laughed, but before she could say anything the bullets started to beep.
"Oh yea, those bullets aren't just to kill s*** .. it's to tear down solid metal walls."

The bullets exploded, since three landed into Devon his body basically took a lot of infliction, since you know explosion on the body tends to tear flesh and bones up. Blood splattered, his mouth mostly busted up and his body went limp as the phaselock ended, him falling to the floor. Saya was coming towards them, pumping her shotgun. But she also heard Riki call out Kud's name .. surely this was all going to heck.

David West
Once Devon was down, David snapped out of the trance the Not!Author put him under, exclaiming "What the hell just happened? I mean...I fired but....Sorry..."
He checked his M500's ammo, 3 shots were fired.
"Right....Who'd I shoot?" He asked, unaware of what he did under Not!Devon's influence or that Ella was still around.

Not!Rugal!
Jake let out a giant sigh as Not!Rugal was defeated. He sheathed his sword before falling to one knee, hand upon his chest. "Ow fuck that really hurts..." he groaned before glancing back at Teri. "Oh shit, here we go..."

Jake crawled closer to the crying girl, making sure not to touch her before lying up against the tree she was curled up under. "Hey Teri... Thanks for saving my arse. Your powers helped out so much in that battle. I'm only wondering one thing, how did Rugal get his eyes back? And why would he turn against us, he knows we need to defeat Dark Tomoya, wasn't he sprouting off that he was the only one of us strong enough to beat the archangel?" Jake said softly to the girl, coughing a bit as he finished. His fingers probed his ribs, but he couldn't feel any breaks. He decided he was still winded now the adrenaline had stopped.

"Why are we here Teri? Why did we enter the AA, rather than just force reset it from outside and be done with it? Ow fuck I hope I stop hurting in a minute..."

bluerocker:

Kalastryn noticed something that wasn't right about the Rugal they had just taken down... she then asked Caim a simple question, but the reasoning seemed out of reach. "you can communicate with the dragon above us correct? Forgive me for asking but could you ask them to come to our current location, on ground level... I have something I need to test on "Rugal's" body... that I will be needing her help for. Or rather... a drop of her blood for." she said pulling out an empty vial no larger than her thumb. "You see, there is a certain spell I need, but I can't simply rest for a while and obtain it from a book or anything, I could only exchange the ability to cast one of my spells for another every three days... any more attempts could destroy me... with the exception of if I drink any quantity of a dragon's blood, then I can switch them at any time for the next 24 hours. I know it's a bit much for a stranger to ask you for, but keep in mind there is a very good reason for it." she said... then chuckled a little at the irony that they have a vampire in their group and SHE'S the one asking for blood!

Not!Rugal!

Teri shook a little and shook her head, "I don't know, Jake. I really don't know why he attacked, or why he said those terrible things, or why he could see! I don't know! It just happened so quickly, and the next thing I know, I'm calling up Water Elementals and swords and dogs and..... He wasn't kidding."

"'He wasn't kidding' about what?"

"'The first kill is satisfying' he said, right before we jumped here. And I think he's right. For just a moment, I felt strong and unstoppable when I cut off his head. I'm a little worried, Jake. What if that is a sign that I'm going crazy too?"

Her head remained buried in her knees for a moment, and then she said, "As for your second question... I kind of came on a mission. Right before we left, we were visited by Lucifer. It was really scary, seeing the Morning Star before me. He told me that we've been abusing resets, and that I needed to make sure we didn't use them wantonly. Apparently, according to him, I can keep people in check, or something like that; and even God believes in me on this mission... But that doesn't stop me from doubting me. I just killed a man out of spite, Jake. What morals do I have?"

Dimension: Avatar Adventures Universe

Time: Nighttime | January 1st

Not!Rugal!

"Keep people in check... Yeah, you can. You're our morals, the guiding light I reckon. Rugal is a dangerous foe and even worse ally, don't feel bad we killed him. His eyes stood out, how did he get them back? Rigal ain't the kinda guy to hid that, it annoyed him greatly being blind, something's off there. That thing attacked you, that didn't hurt your morals to fight back, and don't worry about being crazy, we all are in some little way. And how many times do I have to tell you, little Teri? Believe in the me that believes in you, and you will be unstoppable! Even if I have to beat that into ya!"

Jake's hand dropped to the ground by Teri. "Hey Teri. When you get up, can you pull me up too? I'm still hurting from playing silly buggers with that tree..."

Caim frowned at the notion but relented, "I'll ask, but I cannot guarantee anything."

There was a moment of silence from the warrior; to which we, the readers shall get a glimpse....

He looked back to Kalastryn when the conversation ended, and nodded, "She's coming, but it'll be safe to say that you will need to go back to the entrance of this clearing. She doesn't want to change to her human form until you collect the blood. Jake, keep a watch on things... Teri... Good job with the spells. You fought Rugal Bernstein and kept him from laying a hand on you. That is not a feat one can commonly attest to."

As the warrior and tiefling left the area, Teri couldn't help but feel another knot of guilt twist in her stomach, "Please don't remind me..."

However, Jake's musings about her being a guiding light made her laugh, "PFFT! You gotta be kidding me. But... Mr. Bernstein was my friend; even if was kind of a jerk. I guess I kind of latched onto him because he promised not to hurt me when I was having a freakout and thought Bruiser was on the ship. He didn't treat me like I was going to break, even though I had plenty of issues to go around. And during shifts in the Med-Bay; I will admit I enjoyed the company..."

She sniffed a little, "Maybe it's safe to say that I hoped I could bring out a little bit of good in him every once in a while. Everyone has a little bit, I think. Even Bru- No, that'll be a maybe.

You know how much he fakes being tough? It's crazy! The man was as stubborn as a mule; even after getting beaten to hell and back. So... Yeah. That's how it was. I mean, what should I have expected? Him becoming a hero? I really am childish."

Character Sheet Repost pt 1

Our charactersheets have literally been clogging up the Front page of the group and causing it to crash. Thus, Me and Diablo decided that posting here, and linking to the post specifically will allow some of the clutter to be cleaned up.

Happy RPing.

Another Note: Poor Teri's spell list is getting cut off, so I'm splitting and reposting here.

as Kalastryn enters the clearing and Angelus descends into it, Kala bows her head and does a quick pin prick with a scalpel she took from Teri's medical bag, puts the vial to the extremely small wound, and then... bottoms up. she starts to glow very, very faintly blue. "thank you, if I'm right about this assumption then it could help with numerous similar situations if there are any."

and done. Again you have my apologies, anyhow, I hope this wasn't a waste of time and that I happen to be correct. making their way back to Teri and "Rugal's" body, she waves her hand and the body vaporizes in a plume of smoke. "I figured as much... the "Rugal Bernstein" you saw before you was an impostor crafted by the corruption's magic to deceive and destroy us. At least now we have a trump card against such an attack. Tell me if anyone is acting suspicious to you and I'll toss a dispel magic their way, If they don't disappear to oblivion, then they are the real deal." Kalastryn then looked to Teri "Your not childish by the way, Mr. Bernstein doesn't look at all like the heroic type. However, he'd probably never lash out at you as this impostor had, your right in your assumption that EVERYONE has good in them... except maybe Tomoya because that's why were here, but you get the point. she said with a smile to try and cheer Teri up a little.

"A fake..? Well, I would be lying if I didn't say that was a relief..."

She forced herself up from the ground, helping Jake up along the way, and wiped her eyes, "Okay... Thank you Kalastryn, Caim, Angelus; for putting the matter at ease. I'm sorry you had to deal with me being, well... Me during that fight. I will try to remain stronger from henceforth.."

The dragon-turned-human rolled her eyes at the notion, and waved the girl over, "If what Caim told me was true, you are doing well as is. Come now; perhaps we should all rest a little before going on. I'll build us a small fire..."

The Cleric smiled at the thought, and tugged at Jake's arm, "Come on, let's get ourselves toasty..."

"Hey, we're in strange times kiddo. Any port in a storm, and Blind Rugal is a pretty strong port eh? Be you and never be anything else Teri. Ahh, thanks for helping me up."

And then Teri dropped her afwul pun.

"'Let's get toasty?' Oh gods thats hilarious, I'm holding you to that, hahahahahaaa!"

Sitting down around the small fire Angelus created, Jake pulled a small flask out and took a swig. He offered it to Teri first. "Glenfiddich scotch whiskey, best single malt out there. The flask is self refilling, and this might just ease your nerves. Oi Caim, do you drink Scotch?"

Kyre | Mark | Tajuh: Drop Group #2

Tajuh sighed and grinned inwardly to himself. If this succubus thought her Allure would instantly work on him, there was something that he thought could help with that.

"No hard feelings." He lunged and went for a strike on the same exact knee that had been horribly fucked up earlier.


David | Elena | Kud | Riki | Saya | Slindis: Drop Group #3
vs.
Not!Alashi | Not!Devon

By this point, Slindis had had enough of this talk. When Ella was still recovering, she pounced on the succubus and pinned her to the ground with her offhand rapier piercing through the succubus' sternum like it was tinfoil for the resistance that it provided. "You have no right to be saying those things, whore. Now go back to hell where you belong." If Saya looked over at the paladin now, she would see the unbridled fury that was coursing through the knight.

Meanwhile, Devon coughed weakly as he bled out. "...good job fucking it up, shit for brains...now you just killed the knight and her daughter..." One last smirk was accompanied by the man flipping her off with both hands as the light fled from his eyes.


Kurumu | Puce | Melethia | Rugal: Drop Group #4
vs.
Not!Slindis | Not!Teri

The acid from the girl's injury kept eating at the stitches being used to try and patch the girl up. "...was I not a good enough daughter?...Kurumu, I think you won the bet..." These were the last words she spoke before losing consciousness.


Slindis parried the feeble attacks from the succubus and pierced one lung with her offhand rapier while gutting the illusion with the second. "You'll be seeing your mistress and her lover soon." Having rid herself of the last problem, she made her way to the camp.


Aftan | Alashi (Ella) | Altea | Akane | Cadolbolg | Devon | Ton Ton: Group #5
vs.
Not!Angelus | Not!Caim

He laughed at her response. "I'll take you out to dinner after this, if that's what you want!" The song Devon was playing served to inspire all his allies that could hear it as he got a bit closer to Caim and Angelus.

Devon began to Inspire Courage in all his allies, making it harder for them to be scared or charmed and increasing their attack at the same time

BlackHarte | Armageddon | Nessaj

BlackHarte cross his arms and leaned back in his chair as he stared at the game board. Black and ivory pieces littered both sides. This was by far the most harrowing game of Chess he had ever played, and his opponent someone so intelligent that no human player had ever come close to matching his strategic intellect.

The Technomorph put down his hands on the table and laughed, "I concede! You got me! Good showing, shall we go at it again?"

Armageddon gave a gruff grunt and nodded his head, quickly moving his mouth to reset the pieces. Nessaj sat in the corner by himself, woefully stuffing his armor with what sweets he could find, evidently still overwrought with his sudden sense of insignificance.

Taking the time between games, BlackHarte looked out the airship window at the moon and the stars, "To answer your earlier question Armageddon, a maiden's heart is a fragile thing...

Kyre | Not!Kurumu | Mark | Tajuh

...it is something that jumps between states of affection, love, obsession, and hate. It's something best not toyed with," Kyre had dropped Talon to the ground when Kurumu promised to stay with her forever. And for a good while, Kyre was perfectly fine with that, to be lost in her warm embrace and smooth skin, to be around that tantalizing sweetness. It would have been an experience beyond pleasure. Her hands fondled the stumps of what were once leathery wings before dropping from them and to her sides.

"Allure...?" she said suddenly, pushing Kurumu away slightly so that she could see the Succubus fully with her emerald eyes, "...but I want you to myself."

Red Mage | Titania

Two Ragna Blades crashed into each other in the dark storm clouds over the temple of light. Chaos lashed out at each of the combatants. The wind blew furiously, and the sky wept acidic tears that burned the skin and eyes of both RM and Titania. Yet neither relented.

"Why would you think that little girl would help you with anything!?" Titania screamed over the roar of thunder.

Red Mage replied after pressing on harder with his blade of darkness, "Her love, I will exploit her affection for the Succubus. That will drive her into the Sea of Chaos."

"You know that love is a fickle thing, it has the power to persuade people into selfless deeds, but it also has the power to turn someone into a envious monster. Alas, it is just another roll of the dice, as is everything, and you bid thy hopes on...

Kyre | Not!Kurumu | Mark | Tajuh

"madness."

It tasted awful, her guts tasted awful. Soft, warm, and slick, they hung from her teeth like string and sinew. They slid between her hands, between her fingers, leaving the foul stench everywhere. Kyre chewed slowly and dug deeper... there was the liver, the pancreas, the gallbladder, the stomach and the intestines. Yet they didn't taste the same, not the same at all.

She bit down again and felt the soft meat spread warm blood through her mouth, bitter, salty, and not sweet at all. At most it tasted a bit like molten cream.

Then suddenly the cold night air hit her in the face again, her love had stumbled backwards, clutching her abdomen to stop her intestines from falling out any further than they already had. Yet she couldn't get far, Kyre had her hand tightened around Kurumu's womb, and her nails dug deep.

"You said you wouldn't leave me..." she swallowed, "I'll make it so we will never part again." Kyre looked up at Kurumu, her eyes dull, calm, and serious, "I will devour you."

Kyre rolls 17 for intimidation.

David | Elena | Kud | Riki | Saya | Slindis: Drop Group #3
vs.
Not!Alashi | Not!Devon

"...good job fucking it up, shit for brains...now you just killed the knight and her daughter..."

Saya took her time walking over, and even when the man was obviously going to be dead- Saya stomped onto his head with little care. The way she did it though, was to put him out quickly rather then the urge to do so out of anger. "She'll live, and whatever becomes of her daughter is her responsibility. Right now, all I care about is to see you finally shutting the hell up. So sleep tight-" As the foot pressed into his skull a bit more, Devon was finally done with.

Saya indeed caught a glimpse of Slindis's wrath. That look however, brought Saya back memories, in which left the Siren to watch with a saddening look. That was me back then.. I haven't even changed much. But, not that long ago I was doing the same thing.
The Vault Hunter also noticed David being himself, as he commented about not knowing whom he shot. The look Saya gave him was enough to confirm which target he shot, as there was a bruise on Saya's right shoulder.

Saya walked over to Slindis, as Ella was pressed with her smile as wicked as beforehand, the knight putting more then enough effort to have her razor shoved on the other side touching the floor itself. A pistol was on the side of Slindis's head, Saya offering her the gun. "If you want her dead, just shoot her... torturing her like this is just going to piss you off more, like a crazy @$$ animal. Or use something to end it, because I believe Riki and Kud are in trouble."

Kalastryn felt comforted by the heat of the fire on such a dark night, not that lighting was an issue, but rather the weight of the mental burdens. Altea and Akane not having returned yet was on her mind, but even more pressing were the clones they had encountered... after all, if there was someone who looked like her screwing people over, it wouldn't spell well for her conscience knowing someone died assuming SHE killed them. then a thought struck her, surely if the jungle had been so wise to use such a trick, they couldn't be the only ones in this scenario. she got up from the group and said. "you can take your rests if you wish, but I figured since I could make myself so useful against these impostors, I should find the other drop groups and see if they've come into a similar scenario. If you think the impostor Rugal was bad... I've fought beside two of the people who were on the airship, and honestly, they could be a lot worse, especially if the jungle could mimic their equipment. then anyone who comes across an impostor of either of them would be Right F**ked!" she said as she started a quick, but alert and cautious stroll through the jungle towards group #4. After a long period of time she arrives to see Melethia unconscious and bleeding on the floor.

bluecrimson:

she ran over to Melethia and asked what the hell happened. but it wasn't really any use considering she's unconscious. she could still feel some warmth on Mele's skin, signifying she's still alive she got up and wondered where the hell Slindis is, and more importantly who did this to her, she picks up Melethia's unconscious body and starts a haste filled walk back to Teri and the others. probably going to meet Caim and Teri on the way back, as she assumed they wouldn't let her go alone.

Around the Campfire

Teri shrugged, and took a small sip of the stuff. She nearly spat it out, but swallowed it all the same, the burning of the alcohol nearly making her gag.

"UGH! This is awful! How do you manage, Jake?!"

Caim smirked as he grabbed a sip for himself, swallowing the bit he drank like a champ. Nodding with approval, he handed the flask back to Jake, "Very smooth. I like it."

The little group sat quietly as the fire provided a bit of comfort, and then Kalastryn walked off after giving a spiel about their allies and saving them. With a slight sigh; Caim got up from the fire and pointed at Angelus, "You stay here and watch the boy. Aftan and Akane could return at any time; and we don't want to lead them astray. Healer, come with me."

The dragon gave a serious nod to her pact partner before he and Teri wandered after Kalastryn. As they did, Caim changed to Reaper's Scythe and prepared for the worst.

"How many of those water elementals or summons do you have left?"

"6. However, doing so burns my attempts at turning fire things or undead; and I want to keep the undead ones ready. So... Two."

"Anything else?"

"A shielding spell, the longsword, and two spells to create fog. But I burn the former two, I can't heal anymore; so I've been stingy."

Caim nodded, "Either way, you have use yet. Prepare that staff of yours. You're going to need it if you run out of spells."

Aftan | Alashi (Ella) | Altea | Akane | Cadolbolg | Devon | Ton Ton: Group #5
vs.
Not!Angelus | Not!Caim

Ton Ton struggled to get a proper view of the Fake! duo when he saw Caim standing from the dragon. Readying his blade, he jumped high into the air, and was ready to bring his sword down on Ton Ton and Ella.

Not!Kurumu | Kyre | Mark | Tajuh

Kyre rolled a 15 for Sanity Check

Kyre licked Not!Kurumu's sternum lovingly before biting down through her flesh and bone. For a human, her teeth and jaws were remarkably strong... monstrous even. The blood streamed down from her mouth and down her face, dripping and coalescing in a dark spreading pool across the dusty roof.

As she chewed through Not!Kurumu's chest, the Succubus placed her claws on the back of her head, preparing to press those claws through her brilliant red hair and end the creature's pitiful life. Then she lost all the feeling in her arms.

The thing about trying to endure pain for an extended period of time was that eventually you lose the ability to recognize new pain. Everything just blended together eventually, and while Kyre was burying herself between Kurumu's chest, her hands had snaked from her abdomen and pushed aside much of her internal organs and found their way to her spinal chord. It was simple to break her spine, and sever all her connection with the rest of her body.

Not!Kurumu's body fell limp and collapsed backwards onto the ceiling and Kyre fell onto of her, working her merry way toward the Succubus' fragile, still beating heart. Then Kyre raised herself from the wreck of a body and smiled, "I knew you weren't the same... you taste too much like shit. Too much like a beast." Yet the Anti-Mage placed her hands on the Succubus's chest and parted it forcefully. A sickening crunch later, her heart and lungs were exposed to the cold night air, and the beating of her heart quickened in pace. Working away behind the soft velvet of her lungs. "Yet all the same, I want you..."

Kyre smiled and cupped her hands around the beating heart before lowering her mouth to it, "(I hate liars.)" It was a final farewell in her native tongue before she bit down into the doppelganger's heart, tearing a hole in the tough stringy muscle and letting the blood flow out of it and into the open chest cavity.

The Anti-Mage merely sat there afterward, covered in the hot blood and staring at the broken corpse that lay before her. The moonlight skies above began to rain, not the cold harsh rain of a winter's night, but a warm rain, as if the sky was crying. For these teardrops from heaven above mixed with Kyre's own as they washed away the blood of the mimic, leaving behind only the smooth white skin and shattered bones.

Then she collapsed into it's broken embrace, crying.

Angelus | Caim | Jake | Kalastryn | Kokoa | Teri: Drop Group #1
vs.
Not!Rugal

Teri gave Kokoa a blank stare for a moment and stuttered, "Excuse me? Look, I understand I broke down back there, but I had just thought I killed somebody important to me! Sue me if I get a little upset!"

Clearly, she was still a bit on edge after the incident with the False Rugal; which led Kokoa to wonder why the girl cared about the Cartel Lord so much. He was a dick, at least in Kokoa's eyes.

Caim only shook his head in disdain, "Look, little vampire, Kalastryn wandered off. If you're here to help us find her again, that'd be great. Otherwise, antagonizing the Healer will slow us down. Are you here to help or not?"

Back at the Campfire

Angelus played with the fire with a lazy finger, making the flame swirl and dance at her will as Jake silently sipped his drinks. After another moment of being idle, the dragon looked up from her work and asked, "Is that beverage particularly strong? I'd hate to see you lose your life due to drunken impairment..."

Aftan | Alashi (Ella) | Altea | Akane | Cadolbolg | Devon | Ton Ton: Group #5
vs.
Not!Angelus | Not!Caim

The false Caim gritted his teeth as the blade in his hands disappeared, and he fell to the ground. His pact-strengthened legs were used to the distance; so his landing was not painful. Calling in a new sword to his hands (Red Fear), he pointed at the Succubus with furrowed eyes.

"Come and get it, whore."


The last thing Ton Ton saw before hitting the ground was the explosion of the metal turtle beside Angelus' face. Yellow eyes widening in horror, Ton Ton screamed for his fallen friend, "CADOLBOLG! AUGH!"

When ground met Tonberry, Ton Ton gasped in pain as the drop left him seeing stars. However, like all of their race, Ton Ton was resilient. Although he ached, nothing was broken; although he couldn't move properly, his muscles were fine. But the pain remained all too clear for the little creature. He watched helplessly as the false Caim and Angelus began attacking his allies.

"I gotta move... I gotta move..."

That was when a dark chuckle and a large shadow towered over him. The false Angelus had moved her immense head over the little lizard, and grinned with nasty pointed teeth, "A snack... How convenient. Try not to struggle too much, it'll only make it worse."

As the maw moved down over Ton Ton, the lizard gripped his knife carefully as the tongue snaked around him and began to lift him into her mouth. When the jaws started to close, Ton Ton's plan came to action, and he drove the knife deep into the Dragon's Tongue. An unholy shriek filled the area as the beast began to shake it's head from side to side in pain.

A.I. Vermilion | Dmitri: Dmitri's Home

"We were speaking of something before we were interrupted. Forgive me but in this limited form, I have already needed to purge my RAM, clearing out our previous conversation."[/quote]

Dimitri shook his head, and kept his attention to his books, "Pardon my course language, but it is irrelevant for the moment. Her vitals are picking up again. She has not completely recovered from the shock of that event..."

With a sigh, he said, "Forgive me... My home almost comes crashing down on me has made me a little testy. Speak."

Kyre | Mark | Tajuh: Drop Group #2

After seeing Kyre killing the woman, Tajuh went and picked the princess up along with the dissipating body of the false Kurumu. "There you go, dear... Just let it all out." Since the clone was eliminated, Mark was freed from the allure and he could see the bizarre sight of the relatively callous man doing his best to be a father figure to Kyre.


David | Elena | | Saya | Slindis: Drop Group #3
vs.
Not!Ella | Not!Devon

Slindis took a great deal of time to calm down after the two left, but from how Saya crushed Devon's skull, it was clear that he was dead. So why was she still alive? There was an eerie silence as the paladin wiped her blade clean and checked her leg armor, which had held up under the shots.

"...someone check on Riki and Kud. NOW!" David might be able to mistake this as Slindis barking orders, but Saya could see that Slindis was putting on a mask that was starting to crack.


Kurumu | Puce | Melethia | Rugal: Drop Group #4
vs.
Not!Slindis | Not!Teri

Puce could see that even with the stitches there wasn't all too much that he could do. If nothing else, he could see that the illusionary Slindis knew how to kill. By far, these were the worst injuries that he had seen in a long time.

However, when Kalastryn tried to run with her, the mere act of being grabbed caused the girl to thrash around, reopening the stitched wounds and causing her to fall to the ground. And the scream had drawn the Fake Slindis' attention, and she came over to the group looking like she was on a nice jaunt instead of having destroyed three of Kurumu's illusions.

"For harboring multiple succubi and the murderer of millions of humanoids, I sentence you all to death. Make your final peace, because this will be over swiftly." Puce luuked into Slindis' eyes and saw absolutely no remorse in them, only the ice-cold stare of someone that wasn't going to stop until she slaughtered each and every one of them.


Aftan | Alashi (Ella) | Altea | Akane | Cadolbolg | Devon | Ton Ton: Group #5
vs.
Not!Angelus | Not!Caim

When Ton-Ton stabbed the mouth multiple times, she roared in pain and thrashed around, causing the blood and spit soaked Tonberry to fly out. Devon saw the little guy that was a bit dazed from the thrashing and picked him up to give him a pep talk. "Come on, Ton-Ton, you can do this! I understand that fighting those two doesn't feel right, but think of Teri. What would happen if they were to attack her? If nothing else, think of that. I'll touch you up, so let's get this done." The stuffed warrior noticed that although he wasn't repaired, the man had cleaned him up which bolstered his morale a bit.

Devon cast Prestidigation! It can do many minor effects, cleaning up Ton-Ton in this case.

Rugal
Rugal watched on at Puce and Kurumu tended to Melethia, it was clear she didn't have much time left.
Then Not!Slindis appeared and a plan formed.
He shook his head at the copy and tutted lightly.
"You want to know what I find strange? The fact that for all his power, all his men, all his ego, Tomoya would rather kill innocent people rather then look for a challenge. It was Tomoya who made you, was it not?" He asked as he stepped between the fake and the group, trying to draw aggro away from them.
"Still, a fight with a rather poor imitation of years of training and experience would be a better fight then anything your so called "Master" could ever provide." He taunted as he cracked his neck.
"Show me everything you have to offer...." He finished before motioning for the imposter to "Bring it".
As per tradition, Combat Music!

Rugal and Not!Slindis

The paladin laughed dryly as she layered multiple defensive spells to mitigate the damage of elemental effects and make her harder to hi. "Oh, Rugal Bernstein. Is it not enough that you're envious of the gods, but you have to lust over the abilities of their servants as well? No matter what you do, to me you'll always be that crotchety old horse that I first saw in the Everfree Forest on one of your many attempts to escape. You relied on me to aid you then, so how should being a human change the inevitable result?"

She began the fight with a few rapid thrusts of her rapier, aiming to force the brisk sh*thouse to the side so he could pick off the people that he was guarding - including the mortally wounded Melethia. From what he saw, Slindis hadn't been lying when she had said a bear would be no problem for her.

Rugal and Not!Slindis
"If that really was the case, Then why did you cast so many defensive spells?" Rugal smirked before the fight began.
Off the bat, He brought up his Slashing Aura and used it to parry her attacks, sparks flying on impact with his hands and feet.
The second he got a opening, he smashed a elbow into the clone's face to break her guard and go on the offensive, going with several sword-like swings of his arms and legs, switching up between high and low attacks in a bid to keep her guess and hopefully land another hit.

Drop Group #2: Kyre | Mark | Tajuh vs. Not!Kurumu

He nodded at the information. 'Mark, we need to rendezvous with the others. If so many came after us three, they haven't been unscathed. It'll be a long night, but it's what we will have to do." Tajuh continued to rub the girl's back as he moved through the forest, listening for any signs of combat.


Drop Group #3: David | Elena | Kud | Riki | Saya | Slindis vs. Not!Ella | Not!Devon

Slindis merely gave out the order again. "Where are Riki and Kud?! Someone, head to their tent!" The tone the paladin used showed she was more than a bit on edge.


Drop Group #4: Caim | Kalastryn | Kokoa | Kurumu | Puce | Melethia | Rugal | Teri vs. Not!Slindis | Not!Teri

She jumped out of the quicksand, fighting the two equally. It would take far more than that to catch her off guard. In the middle of her combat, she touched her left arm and pointed at the energy conduit, coating his arms with a slick grease while another stab from one of her rapiers lit the grease on fire. on rugal's part, she continued with the swift jabs, trying to pick his defense apart.


Drop Group #5: Aftan | Alashi (Ella) | Altea | Akane | Cadolbolg | Devon | Ton Ton vs. Not!Angelus | Not!Caim

Devon looked up at Angelus, just now noticing that maybe being noticed by the big fuckoff dragon was a bad idea. "Whoa whoa whoa, Hold up! My meat's real stringy and tough. Plus, I come from the Southwest. Would you want indigestion?" He did his best to dodge the attacks, aided a bit by small gusts of wind.
