Jake finished his song, and let the peace and silence sink in. He could still not see, but he was he could still hear the Dragon's light breathing. A short sharp intake of air, then she was back to normal.

Jake thought nothing of it and readied to sing another song, when he heard a slight rustle through the air. Perking up a tad, he waited for Angelus' commands, but none came, along with the sound of wings flapping. Cadolbolg, he knew. Otherwise, Angelus would have made a sound. Odd, however, that no words were spoken. Perhaps a hug was in order. Jake shrugged a little, slumping back to the warmth of the fire. He looked peaceful, staring into the flames, though his eyes were unfocused and sightless.

"Sorry to interrupt you, Angelus, Cadolbolg, but who is around? I can hear several sets of footsteps drawing nearer..."

Rugal
After Devon seemed to not hear him, most likely because I forgot to snip him, Rugal managed to pry himself away from the warm of his sleeping bag and the wine and proceed deeper into the jungle to find where Teri went off to.
"Teri!....You there?!.....Come on, you know better then to wander at a time like this..." He cried up as he made his way though the trees and vines, the sound of his cutting giving his position more then his shouting.

David West
"About time, Saya, you go left, I'll go right. Slin, if you can get though, Find Kud and if he's there, Riki. LETS ROCK!" David detailed his master plan before the group charged into the camp, instantly gaining the attention of the entire tribe in the process.
Spears and arrows were thrown and the best ever live action zerg rush raced towards them.

Tajuh looked over at the writer with an air of annoyance and began talking in a tone that reminded the author of Severus Snape with its scornful drawl. "I wasn't aware that authors believed they were privy to the inner workings of my mind, even if that's but an assumption. Don't you have other things to be checking up on?"

The message from the man was quite clear to the author: step the hell off, because I'm not telling you a damn thing.


At Rugal's request, he went over to Teri to see her scribbling on the tablet. "Teri, we've got those supplies. Are you coming to get some of them?"



Drop Group #3: David | Elena | Kud | Riki | Saya | Slindis

The moment the gunfire started, Slindis began moving through the village, making little noise and being even less noticed from the armor that seemed to give off little light. Okay, grid search, if any of them appear to be casters or bards of some sort, take them out first. Simple, and it's exactly what I need to help them get their minds off what was heard.

She made her way to the first group of tents, taking a quick look to see how many people were around before infiltrating any of the huts.

Armageddon

"It is fortunate that I have finally garnered your full attention," Armageddon closed his hand and extinguished the dark flame that he held in his gloved palm. Now he needed to tread lightly, Chaos Servant that he was, not even the Witch of Izalith would willingly go toe to toe with a hero in their own plane. Especially in such a one so conducive to fanservice. "Moka." he began.

He raised a hand and pointed to Kurumu, "Tell me now, what you understand about the euphoria caused by ingestion of demon blood is like. If you do not know, take a bite and tell me."

Armageddon turned his attention back to Kurumu, who had foolishly adopted a melee combat stance, a useless technique against his arsenal of pyromancies if he had actually chose to use them, "And you, you will tell me everything you have understanding of about your family. Specifically... tell me about your sibling." Then Armageddon stopped, his finger and hand was trembling. "What... what is this... you don't."

He closed his eyes and opened them again, this time they shone deep blood red, "Yuo have a sister don't you...? Alashi... Right? I couldn't... I couldn't be in the wrong world. This is the only one with anyone like you at all." A black flame burst into existence around his right hand, "This is an inconsistency BlackHarte... What the fuck are you saying that Kurono Kurumu doesn't have a registered sister!?"

Kyre | Kruumu

Kyre answered Kurumu by bringing herself upward and locking lips with the Succubus before forcing herself onto Kurumu. The taste of blood was still fresh on her lips. Then she pulled back and fell into Kurumu's embrace, still wracked with pain of the demon blood reacting violently with her core physiology, "You are my everything Kurumu," she muttered, "you were the first face I saw when I woke up, you're the last person I know from my past that's still alive. Somehow I know that I'm me when I'm near you. I don't know if that's called love, because I've never felt this way toward anyone buy you!"

She placed a bloody hand on Kurumu's knee and tried to bring herself to her feet, "In a twisted sense, you complete me."

Angelus turned and said, "Our wayward comrades have returned."

She looked back to her son and his pact partner, and she hugged the two tightly, "I"m so sorry, Cadolbolg, Ton Ton. I know for a fact that myself and Caim did not intend for this line of thought to cross your mind... You see, we, if anything, want you to be happy. You are our son. It does not matter whether or not you are 'as strong' as us. If anything, we would have wanted you to be in a world without strife, or war. I'm terribly sorry that you had thought that we would have wanted you to..."

She shook a little, still holding the two close to her, "When we trained with you, we did so that you could protect yourself when we weren't around. Yes, Caim has been proud of your quickness to learn; but that doesn't mean he wants you to be a soldier. I know I don't want you to be."

When she set them down, she spoke properly, "Despite what feelings I may have towards this, what is done is done. You are both pact-partners now. You will have to take more care in what you do. Now, I have one last question; do you know what your prices were? With such an unusual pact, I can only imagine that both of you have had to pay for it..."

Drop Group #2: Caim | Devon | Ella | Kalastryn | Kurumu | Kyre | Mark | Melethia | Puce | Rugal | Tajuh | Teri

Caim frowned at the succubus' comments, and moved away from the tree. The sword still at the ready; should the succubus come for a second round. However, he was still a tad bit repulsed by the advances towards him; and asked, "If you usually do that to distract your opponent, then I won't judge you. However, in this case it's just annoying. Or is that what you had in mind?"

Inwardly, Caim patted himself on the back for a punch that he dodged; as he had turned the tables, and begun to annoy the succubus back.

Dimitri's Room: A.I. Vermilion | Dmitri

If Dimitri still had any steam in him from his crusade against Rugal, then Vermilion's thoughts on the matter had deflated him. She was right... If anything, exposing his young mistress to those images may have done her some more harm than good; as well as the talk that he had given her moments before... With a heavy sigh, he slumped in his chair, and watched his companion by the fire,

"I am afraid that you are correct, Ms. Vermilion. I may have hurt the young miss more than I thought. It's... It's a part of my natural programing. She is my User; and I am her personal assistant. I am literally wired to protect her, at any means necessary. Even if it might hurt her a little... At the time, I thought that this would be the best course of action, but I also feel that if I try to patch things up this moment, I will appear insincere!"

Covering his face with his hands, Dimitri rubbed his temples as he tried to think of a proper way to fix what problems he may have caused...

Jake sighed and closed his eyes, moving his face up towards whomever was standing in front of him. A wave of a dismissive hand accompanied the motion. "Worry not about me Aftan, there is nothing you can do to help though you wish to. Angelus provided counsel, and the methods gave me a glimpse into the future and I saw a horrible sight that may come to be. My mind has struck me blind, though I should be fine once I sleep or when the light returns. We used the fire, you see, so that's why the time restriction. Gabrielle, how are you? Thank you for what you did, I owe you just as I do Angelus. If you ever need to talk, my door is always open."

Akane hugged Gabs tight from behind before asking, "Why is Jake thanking you? He wasn't with our group was he?"

"Cadolbolg and Ton Ton! Congratulations on a successful pact. I would like to echo Angelus' words, and I wish you Good Luck and Good Hunting."

Drop Group #2: Caim | Devon | Ella | Kalastryn | Kurumu | Kyre | Mark | Melethia | Puce | Rugal | Tajuh | Teri

In her writing, Teri found that she had been able to make herself relax a bit from the previous encounter with the data on her tablet and her fight with Dimitri (it also helped he sent her a few messages begging for her to forgive his well-intended extremism); even if the subject of her scribblings were a bit grim. However, when she heard someone approaching, she used a water bottle to swish her mouth out and to clean up her face a little; and forced herself to put on a faux attitude that was not anywhere close to her feelings at the moment. That was when she heard Devon:

"Teri, we've got those supplies. Are you coming to get some of them?"

She looked up from the tablet; "Maybe a little later. All I really need is a few refills in my med kit and another water bottle. You know, to make sure I have a Water Elemental at the ready. I have one right here, but I've been drinking from it... It might make the little guy not feel so good... But thanks for telling me! Is that all? If so, you're welcome to chill here. It's nice enough, with the little puddle of messed up water, and the trees..."

"Aftan is right Gabrielle, I can feel it in you... But I won't ask until you are ready to tell us. How are you feeling otherwise, what about the ...burns? I'll never forgive myself for doing that to you... After you jumped in to help me as well..."

"I can help with that ladies. I'm no healer, but I could try and reset her body to the point before she got burnt, a system restore if you would. Essentially, I'd be setting her body back to the last time I saw her unharmed, so back on the airship just before the jump. Be bloody awesome had it of worked on me when I tried it...." Jake interjected, hoping to steer the conversation away from Gabs without having to lie.

Akane looked away in shame as Gabrielle moved over to the Author. "No, I should never have let my wrath get the better of me... Jack would be so disappointed in me right now..."

Jake grabbed his gemstone, placing his other hand upon Gabrielle's breast, directly over her heart. He took a deep breathe and let it out smoothly, the gem glowing and then flashing a brilliant sapphire even through his fist. Gabrielle felt a surge of energy hit her, then nothingness, then like she was fighting fit. Which she was now, her body and nothing else restored to before she suffered the burns. Jake slumped back, his energy now almost all spent and removed his hands, letting them fall to his sides.

"That should do the trick, short stuff. I also have some bad news for your little vampire, the Mark in this realm is a fake, a projection, incorporeal. However, if you wish for Author blood, I humbly offer myself. It's the least I can do. Then I'd like to sleep before sunrise, I am fuck arse tired." he said sleepily. It had been a long day.

Tajuh kept up the condescending tone when he responded to the Author. "And you think that any personal issues I may have would somehow compromise the mission? Unlike some people on the crew, I can set things aside for the larger picture. Now I think you should see your way out of that line of thinking, am I understood?" The man walked back to the majority of the crew before the asian had a chance to respond and began unpacking the equipment that had been dropped for them, setting up the field tents and placing sleeping bags in each one.

Difficulty accessing consciousness.

Melethia stayed unconscious on the ground as the young girl's mind proved incredibly difficult to access. It seemed she didn't want any contact from the outside world.


The man leapt like a cat to avoid getting the water on him, but some of it ended up splashing him on the leg. Nothing big for most people, but Puce could see that the de facto leader of the Rising Dawn was biting his tongue to avoid saying anything. As a matter of fact, all of his muscles were tensed up and his face was a mix of anger and pain.

"Kokoa... What are you doing? I feel funny... Drink and gain your strength so you can fight. I'll support, I am not a fighter like the rest of you all..."

As Kokoa and Jake shared a moment, Akane looked at Aftan.
"The Shadow Realm? Do you think we would be best to ask now, get it over and buried again? I don't want to hurt her again..." She said as she grabbed Aftan's arm and held it tight to her chest, holding Aftan close to her by extension.

It seemed that Akane had a more physical attachment to loosing her Knights now...

As the program started booting up, Mark could hear Melethia's faint voice from the program. "goawaygoawaygoawaygoawaygoawaygoawaygoawaygoawaygoawaygoawaygoawaygoawaygoawaygoawayGOAWAY!"

Yup, she really didn't want someone in, but the fact that her voice could be heard meant that the program was working.


Tajuh held his tongue as he slowly walked under his own power towards one of the tents. "...I'm fine, Puce, just had an old war flashback...." The man's voice was rough, and the reaction from just a half-cupful of water was more than odd.

It gets eerily silent as the program accesses the girl's mind, and it forms into a small, reasonably furnished hallway with doors all around. It seemed safe enough, but Mark knew from the RP that the girl was a master mechanic. It would be stupid to guess that this representation of her mind wouldn't have traps in it.


Tajuh slowly sat down on the sleeping bag inside the tent. "Well, there's going to be pursuit. I can guarantee it. If possible, I was going to see if we could have multiple decoys set up amongst the whole group, two for each man besides the one holding the actual stone. To ensure that nobody could pick it out, perhaps have everyone think they have the real stone and a backup. Part of this plan relies on you, but it's a matter of you forming the stones. The thought is that everyone believes they have the real one. Only the two of us would know exactly who has it, but it wouldn't be one of us holding it." He pointed to the ground next to him, implying he wanted Puce to sit next to him.

"And we won't fail. It's not a matter of arrogance, it's that we can't afford to have that option lingering in our heads when we're in there. Your thoughts?"

Kokoa felt Jake sit up a bit and wrap his arms around her, seemingly cradling her as he shifted his position to make it comfortable for both of them as Kokoa finished injecting Jake and started sucking, quite greedily. She hadn't fed in some days, aside from the small snack Kala had given to her so she could heal up.

Jake whispered into her ear, "Oh wow holy crap that feels ...different... But I ain't gonna complain. heh, do you think we should have perhaps had a little chat about how close I do seem to be getting to your little threesome? Heh heh...regardless, you should at least speak to the pair about it, even if to say, 'not now.'"

The area shifted slightly to become much more aged with flaking paintings, frayed rugs, and rats scuttling around the area. As he tried to continue on, the silence was pierced with a young voice booming out with one word.

"leave."

Upon that one word, a multitude of elves brandishing scimitars poured out of the rooms and went to surround the author.


Tajuh nodded. "Puce, they'll get here. Call me optimistic, but they've got what it takes. Rugal's a good point, but he's a prideful man. He won't want that power because it would mean admitting that he needs that to make his position secure, and bowing down to that again would be repulsive to him as a self-made man. I do realize this plan is still in the works, but no plan survives first contact with the enemy."

The author was panicked, causing the shots from his dominant hand to go astray, but his offhand shots got a good number of the elves which fell, some of them rising back up back up as undead. The large group continued to surround the author, almost getting close enough to attack him with the extremely keen blades.

"get out."

As the author backed up while firing on the elves, he felt the floor shift underneath him. But could he react in time to whatever was going to happen?

Mark has to roll against a 9 to avoid whatever he just set off


Tajuh rubbed his chin, thinking for a second. "We should leave those who would work better in wide areas to guard the rear. Having them inside the tunnels would do more harm than good, and if they hold in the entrance, they could only have to focus on what was in front of them. You know more than I do about the team's combat styles, so which ones would work best for that scenario?"

He could understand Puce's distrust of Rugal, but a man that had built up a crime syndicate like he had, especially if he wasn't afraid to dirty his own hands, had to have immense pride in their skills. It may have been a hunch, but it felt pretty obvious to him that taking those powers for himself would mean that the so-called King of Fighters would have to swallow an immense amount of pride. Taking that into consideration, it was fairly clear to him.


Devon sat underneath the tree with Teri and looked up at the sky. "You know, if it weren't for the stuff that was going on here, it would be pretty nice here. Don't you think?"

The shots from his dominant hand veered off-course, only managing to graze some of the undead. His offhand shots had a bit more accuracy though, killing some of the elves with some in their number rising as undead again. In addition, Mark's plan worked somewhat: some of the undead fell into the pit, but the undead that saw this made sure to move around the pit as the first of the elves went in and slashed at the author with their blades.

You see, there was one thing Melethia never really mentioned to people on the Rising Dawn about the undead in the Black Loch which was quickly becoming relevant here: they were intelligent.

"i don't want help. go away."

Mark has to beat a 11 to avoid the first attack.


Tajuh nodded. "I'll keep that in mind, but we'll have to see what happens when we get there. We might need everyone in there for this operation, but I've got the feeling one of those illusions could help act as a watch when we're inside."

David West Vs. Tribals
David watched Elena's attempts to down one of the tribal.
"Oh goddammit, It's one of THOSE fights. GREY MATTER PEOPLE, JUST PRETEND THEY'RE ZOMBIES!" He shouted to the others as he began picking off several incoming warriors with keen shots to the face and "Though and though" shots.
He managed to keep the aggro on him for the most part, shouting insults to the tribe's finest before head-shooting them.
Despite his efforts though, he found himself being forced back by advancing tribals.
"Elena!....Little help?!" He asked as he reloaded while they got into striking distance.

Drop Group #3: David | Elena | Kud | Riki | Saya | Slindis
David quickly made a break for it as lead rained down on the tribals in front of him.
He used the opening to get some distance between him and the half naked killer locals before resuming his gunfire, killing and crippling a large number of the enemy.
See how they like this... He thought evilly as he switched to Blast rounds before taking aim.
He pulled the trigger and watched as his former targets ceased to exist thanks to the wonders of explodions.
He gave Elena a wave of thanks before making his way into the village, hoping to find Kud.

Unfortunately, the attacks from the author this time completely failed to deliver much more than glancing blows when a good number of the undead and living elves merged together to form a half-dragon lich and a drow brandishing a rapier and a scimitar. More importantly, one of the elves nearby swung wildly at Mark to try and sever an arm.

Mark has to roll higher than a 2 to avoid the disarming.


Tajuh saw the wisdom in Puce's words and nodded. "I'll discuss the arrangements when we reunite so everyone's on the same page, but your insights into the group have been quite helpful. Bernstein's ability to heal people, even if it should prove to be temporary, could aid with the rearguard, so I will bring up that point with him."

His command style out on the battlefield was certainly unusual, but it seemed to be suited for a group like the Rising Dawn's: find your men's strengths, give them an eventual goal, and find a way to have them work at their best while ensuring the target's achieved. It was clear to Puce that Tajuh had worked with similar groups before.


Drop Group #3: David | Elena | Kud | Riki | Saya | Slindis

As the main fight continued in the far side of the encampment, she saw something unusual for the area: shoeprints. It could be one of the children, so I'd better follow this trail. The fighting did much to allow her to move through the camp unhindered.

David West
As Slindis moved around the village, she ended up sneaking alongside the "Town Square" of sorts.
As a result, She managed to catch a glimpse of David cutting down the ranks of the locals, having picked up a spear to accompany his M500.
His aim was deadly and always on the mark, even seemingly random shots into the sky ended up embedded in the skulls of would be attackers.
While he was ensuring most of the attention was taken off her, there was still a larger population then any of them had predicted.
"WHADA TOOIE!" someone shouted behind her as a trio who had broken away from the main group discovered the Drow sneaking though the battlefield.

Slindis
Slindis looked at the trio and unsheathed her rapiers, taking a moment to evaluate the three, trying to pick out which one in the group was the supporting member. Her experience had drilled into her that one always takes out the support first, and she had to find that out before launching any attacks.

Devon sat underneath the tree with Teri and looked up at the sky. "You know, if it weren't for the stuff that was going on here, it would be pretty nice here. Don't you think?"

Devon | Teri

Teri nodded, "Very true. I kind of like it here; aside from all the fierce fauna roaming about..."

She continued writing for a moment, and then she looked to Devon, "I suggest standing back. I've a call to make, and the Ladies do not like to be interrupted..."

Devon did as asked with confusion, and watched as three bowls of red liquid (probably wine), three red camellias, and three vials of a red powder appeared on the ground before her. Following that, Devon noticed that the smell of flowers filled the air with an unearthly perfume, and a small, warm breeze blew through the desolate forest. Another moment passed, and Three women appeared; A maiden, a middle aged woman and a crone. The three looked at the girl before them, and Teri gave a light bow, "Greetings, Ladies. I do hope this wasn't terribly inconvenient? If you recall, I had a request to make?"

Rugal

As Rugal trudged through the woods, he noticed the smell of flowers fill the air... Flowers? In this place? Something wasn't quite right... Following the scent (it was a strong one), Rugal found the two Writers beseeching three women.

Slindis
2 of the larger warriors charged forward with crude stone blades, slow and mostly blunted, but they tended to just end up hammering their target to death anyway.
The last one followed in tow running alongside his brothers in arms before breaking off to flank the Drow.
He was wielding a spear which gave him the distance advantage but not much else.
One of the blade holders stuck out first, aiming to bash her brains in.

Rugal
*Sniff*....Flowers?....but I though Tomoya...mmmmm... Rugal thought as he followed the scent and found the writers.
"Ah good, thought something happened. While you can handle yourselves, that only works so well against a experienced predator..." He said as he looked at the ensemble.
"....I take it these are those Water Elementals....The ones you used to kill my opposite..." He observed somewhat uneasily.
"...Why do I feel like I'm not going to enjoy this?..."

Devon | Teri

Devon looked at the elementals, impressed with the magic. "Would the ladies like to hear a song? He had grabbed one of the sleeping bags from the nearby tent and sat on it while he watched his fellow Author at work.

Slindis

The Paladin sidestepped the attack and stabbed the warrior with one of the rapiers and parried the spear wielder's thrust with some redirection from her offhand rapier. Where's their backup?

Slindis
As Slindis pondered the back-up question-
"Hey! Jaguar Paw! Your movie sucks and you're an asshole!" David shouted moments before another large Explosive round rendered a tribal to a bloody stump.
...Oh... She quickly realised, these men weren't going to get any support.
Back to the fight, The wounded warrior doubled back as the Spear wielder and the other Blade user attempted to attack both at once to try and land a decent hit on the drown, but her armour could easily take it even if she was hit.

Slindis
Realizing that there'd be no support, she quickly capitalized on it. "In the name of Tira!" The drow's blades seemed to be guided by an outside influence as she lunged forward with both blades, maiming the blade user with her Smite. The spear wielder fund that his weapon was about as useful as a club for how much damage it failed to deal to the woman's armor, though.

Slindis
The second blade runner (XD) went down rather easily thanks to Slin's Smite, trashing in pain before going still and dying.
The Spear user still found it hard to believe that his spear was doing next to no damage to the drow and rather stupidly kept trying to stab her in the back, breaking it in the process.
So he decided to just attempted to grapple her and hopefully the other blade user could hit her.
The Corruption that infected them all made them stronger then most humans as shown by Elena unloading a whole .45 clip into one before he went down.

Devon | Rugal | Teri

The eldest of the trio nodded to Devon's request, "The Ladies always appreciate a calming tune. If you would be so kind as to play one; for there are heavy matters at hand."

As Devon began to pluck at the strings, the youngest giggled, and pointed to the three, "A blessed soul, a damned soul and a soul that doesn't know what to do with himself~! And a sharp dresser too... We do love red, you know. What a delight, isn't it sisters?"

The eldest sneered at Rugal when he assumed they were water elementals, and mumbled something under her breath about the ungrateful and forgetful nature of men.

It was odd, to hear them speak, for it was as if they were each the same woman; but at different stages of their life. As the youngest prattled on, the middle aged woman raised a hand and pointed at Teri, "Remember, my dears; our daughter calls to us. We are here to heed her first and last request..."

The other two stopped and turned to the girl; who froze upon being acknowledged. However, after a moment, she spoke, "Ah, yes. Dear ladies, my request is not of gain or loss. Simply, a change needs to be made. Unknowingly, I have bound several individuals to my fate, and I would like them to have the freedom to make fate their own. In return, I shall do as you request of me. I humbly offer these items before you as collateral for this deal."

The three women looked at what the girl had to offer, and nodded, the eldest speaking this time; "It shall be done. My dears, the threads."

As the eldest said so, several strings appeared in many different shades of colors; a deep blue entangled with a blood-red, a silver and a indigo; A green entangled in a sapphire, an indian red with a frayed appearance, a navy blue, a sky blue and a paleish string that was wound in a blocky manner. Each string, at some point or another, had connected to a single plain string. In the end, it looked like an upside down tree; with the plain string as the main trunk and the others as branches. With a quick motion, the plain string was pulled away from the others, and the rest remained in place. Teri cried out in pain and gripped her chest as soon as their fingers touched the string; but they continued their work. There was a few more moments, and then all the strings reformed their tree; albeit without the trunk. The plain string floated on it's own; and then all disappeared.

When it was all done, the three women descended upon the girl and the two could hear whispering from the women; but nothing was legible, save for "A guardian" to which a bottle of water was exchanged. After that the young writer gave a weak bow to the ladies before they disappeared in a wisp of smoke. After a few moments, Teri coughed a little, and began to drink heavily from one of her spare water bottles; leaving the table open for whomever wanted to speak.

Slindis
She turned around and thrusted the blade through the man's shoulder, pulling it out to reveal a crackling wound from the rapier as she leapt to the side and got clipped by one of the wild swings from the other Blade user. More annoyed than anything else, she chanted a defensive spell to blunt the damage from the wild swings as she prepared herself for the next attacks from the two.

Rugal
Rugal watched as Teri did.....whatever it was she did.
For all the time he spent on this earth, Magic was still something that baffled him to no end.
"...I grow weary of all the magic in our world...I really do. All it seems to do is make things more complex and harder to understand. I remember the day where you could get by merely with strength and smarts, but now, seems like everyone can pull a favour from some divine power to do anything. I miss the good old days...." He sighed as he glanced at the writers.
"...So you wish to return to the group now? Just I know first hand some of the beasts here are....difficult to kill..." He warned as he looked at the pair, somehow feeling that something was off.

Slindis
The would-be Grappler found himself with a large bleeding wound on his shoulder and even the blade attacker failed to do any real damage.
So for lack of any better ideas, they tried again, the Grappler now attempting to trip the drow up to allow his Teammate to attack her while she was down.

Devon | Rugal | Teri

Devon felt slightly uncomfortable when the fates mentioned a damned soul and spoke up when they left. "Teri, I don't know if I mentioned it earlier, but I ended giving up a bit for my training with Lucifer. Not much, just fiftyyearsinhellwhenIdie. Nothing too much, considering what we're up against."

Time: Nighttime | January 1st

Drop Group #1: | Aftan | Altea | Akane | Angelus | Cadolbolg | Gabrielle | Jake | Ton Ton
"I'm still here Aftan, and I can explain the friendship. Whilst you two went out watching sunrises, guess what the lazy pair of us did? Play video games on the Herkybird. Man, I miss that plane, it was cool." Jake piped up, hoping to dissuade the inquisitive Knight.

He was energetic yet still tired, and he trudged along behind the three steadily. He dared not to use his Author Powers to craft a pep him up.

Then he tripped. Taking a few extra quick steps, he just managed to regain his balance before hitting a tree.

"Ow. Oi Knights, wait up please. I wasn't close enough, didn't hear your footsteps going over that branch. Fucking hell, how does Rugal manage being blind?"

Akane giggled a bit. "Ara ara Jake, what are we going to do with you? Hey, does anybody have a rope?"

"I ain't no doggie! Oh wait yeah I am, nevermind... *Sigh*, collar me..." he said in mock outrage before swapping to sarcastic acceptance.

Slindis
She caught herself as the man tried to trip her and lashed out with a stab to the man's kneecap, keeping the men off balance while she was fighting. I'm wasting too much time here. I've got to get going!
