  1. IC: Nale Vella - The Tranquility/Outside Metru-Koro She made her way over to Skorm, eyeing Ostrox with suspicion as he dove out of the ship before anyone else present. "I'll catch up with him," Nale said to the Twi-Toa, before stepping off into her second freefall of the day. As she left, the Toa of Magnetism muttered something else, barely audible above the wind as she jumped, but if one were to focus on it they'd hear: "You lot better make it." Nale could feel her heartrate skyrocket again as she dove straight for the rapidly approaching Zakazian landscape. She went into a glide for a bit to slow and reorient herself, before pulling her chute about halfway above the ground. The Fa-Toa then finished her descent, briefly feeling relief the moment her boots touched down on the desert. She was no longer on a crashing airship, but the fighting wasn't over yet, and the others still had to make the jump themselves. Getting the Tranquility out of the air was at least a small victory, but wouldn't mean much if her team didn't survive its crash. "I hope you're not getting any ideas," she said to Ostrox, discarding her pack as she walked over to him. "We don't leave this spot until all of my allies are accounted for." @Conway@Keeper of Kraata@TL01 NUVA@The UltimoScorp@Toru Nui IC: Rose - Pridak's Throne Room Rose prepared herself. She wasn't sure what kind of show Stannis was putting on, but the time for her and the others to make themselves known seemed to be drawing near. The Ta-Toa clenched her fists in anticipation of the things she'd do to Pridak, like taking hold of his head and crushing it like a Madu fruit... @EmperorWhenua@Snelly@Toru Nui@Kal the Guardian@~Xemnas~@Vezok's Friend
  2. IC: Nale Vella - The Tranquility Nale glanced between Irna and the rest of the group. The Fa-Toa may not have been showing it, but she was very worried she'd jump and find herself the only one on the ground. Then again, just like before with Triage (and just like with herself), she understood. The Zyglak woman wanted to stay with the person she cared about. "I...alright." Nale turned to Kat, carefully navigating the falling vessel. "This ship is a lost cause, you can try and stop it all you want, but I'm going," she said. "This is where we get off." @Conway@Keeper of Kraata@TL01 NUVA@The UltimoScorp@Toru Nui
  3. OOC: Quick mobile post. Added colors. IC: Nale Vella - The Tranquility Nale quickly donned her chute. The interference had cleared again, and so far it seemed at least one boarding had succeeded, so the Fa-Toa contacted Knichou again. Hopefully things were at least going smoother for his team... "Knichou, we've got the captain in custody, but this ship is going down. We've acquired chutes, luckily, and we're bailing. I...I'll see you on the ground." The Toa of Magnetism looked to her group. "Who's ready for another jump?" @Conway@Keeper of Kraata@TL01 NUVA@The UltimoScorp@Toru Nui@BULiK IC: Triage - The Taku The ships had stopped firing on them, that was good. Triage knew he couldn't breathe a sigh of relief just yet, but at least now they could probably move about the ship again without what happened to Suhaku and Exuze happening again. "Go check on the other crewmembers for me, see how they're doing," the medic replied. "I need to stay with these two." @ZippyWharrgarbl@Taka Nuvia
  4. IC: Nale Vella - The Tranquility Nale's plan was, almost literally, shot down upon Ostrox accidentally destroying the controls and sending the Tranquility towards the ground. On the brighter side, the League was losing one of its number, on the other...her and her allies were still onboard. Her immediate reaction was to use her element to magnetize to the deck of the bridge and keep from falling backwards, once again creating the interference from before. A ship this big should have some means of getting its passengers off safely in the case of disaster, they couldn't just jump for it and hope for the best. Even with their elemental powers, a freefall from this height would presumably end poorly. "There has to be...something we can use, first. Ostrox, listen here! I doubt you want to go down with us--does this ship have parachutes? Anything?!" @Conway@Keeper of Kraata@TL01 NUVA@The UltimoScorp@Toru Nui IC: Rose - Pridak's Throne Room Rose shuffled her feet, clearly impatient as she stood behind cover and awaited the arrival of the target. Soon she heard voices, recognizing Aurax's as he presented the mask to Pridak. The excited Ta-Toa attempted to find some sort of opening to peer through, almost hoping this plan would go wrong enough to give her the chance to go 1-on-1 with the League leader and show him just how excited she was. Almost. @EmperorWhenua@Snelly@Toru Nui@~Xemnas~@Kal the Guardian@Vezok's Friend
  5. IC: Nale Vella - The Tranquility Nale paused at the doorway to the bridge, commotion audible on the other side. The Toa of Magnetism raised her fist in a "hold" motion, gripping her spear tighter. The Toa flanking Nale seemed eager to get into some action. Maybe she was, too, but she was far more eager to end this before any more damage was done. The Fa-Toa was going to stick to her plan: deal with the crew, take control of the ship, and help the Taku and the village in any way they could. Crashing it was a last-ditch option. Her hand lowered. "Kei, take point," Nale said, voice low, then backed away from the door to give the Av-Toa space. "See if you can bring this door down." @TL01 NUVA@The UltimoScorp@Keeper of Kraata@Toru Nui IC: Korio Karasha - Wastes/The Panda Korio followed behind as the motley crew boarded the Panda, keeping an eye on Zataka as the Vo-Skakdi said he would. His crossbow remained in his grasp the entire time. As cool as her pants may have been, he didn't like this woman. @EmperorWhenua@pokemonlover360@Vezok's Friend
  6. IC: Triage - The Taku "Correct," the medic said, wrapping bandages around any wounds still present on the pair of patients he was treating. "The captain has left the ship with a few other members of the crew and some hangers-on to board the vessels attacking us. I stayed behind to watch over M..." Triage paused, glanced to the Fa-Matoran next to him, then returned his attention to Zsann and Navu, "...you and the rest of this group. Along with the crewmembers still handling the Taku." The medic looked over Exuze and Suhaku grimly and shook his head. He felt especially apologetic towards the Lesterin who he'd guided in treating the Po-Koro survivors. "Or, I'm at least trying to." "Yaushe, meanwhile...is doing something." @ZippyWharrgarbl@Taka Nuvia@Toru Nui
  7. IC: Nale Vella - The Tranquility "If Skorm needs help, then that's our priority," Nale replied, beginning to move in the direction she assumed the bridge was. "Bringing this ship down with us on it doesn't sound too healthy, and if we can instead wrest control of it from the League, then we can use it to aid the Taku and turn this around." @The UltimoScorp@TL01 NUVA
  8. IC: Nale Vella - The Tranquility Nale was a bit ahead of Kei when she dropped into the ship, making use of that "old-fashioned" stealth she'd mentioned before as she crept through the corridor. At the sound of the Av-Toa dropping in, she whirled around, spear pointed in the direction of the noise. "Ah, Light Girl." Then Kat joined, and Nale looked around for a moment before responding. She was surprised, as well. "Not seen anyone yet. Most of the crew is probably on the bridge." The Toa of Magnetism addressed Keitara again. "You seem ready to go at it. Is Skorm...?" @Conway@Keeper of Kraata@TL01 NUVA@The UltimoScorp
  9. IC: Triage - The Taku The tired medic looked up from his patients. "I think I have something in my satchel that can calm nerves...look, Navu, the best thing you can do right now is lay low." @ZippyWharrgarbl@Toru Nui
  10. IC: Triage - The Taku The medic was rocked back and forth by the attack on the ship, falling to the ground upon a wall of the Taku being blasted open. His first thoughts were to check on Mega, but as he got to his feet and the dust began to clear, he realized that Exuze--the Lesterin who had helped him with the Po-Koro injured prior--was now in need of aid himself. Triage was, unfortunately, used to the screams and the sight of carnage like this. You had to be as a field medic, and it allowed him to quickly take stock of the situation. It didn't, however, make it any less terrible to see. He rushed to Exuze's side. He'd seen Suhaku, the Turaga, get injured as well, but at the moment couldn't help her. One at a time, he thought to himself. One at a time. The injury was grisly and the patient was going into shock. Triage fished around in his satchel for a moment, before producing a painkiller he'd perfected long ago from his own expertise and affinity with plantlife, and administering it to Exuze via injection. "This...this should help a little," the medic said, as if he was dealing with something less than a dismemberment, then put his focus on at least closing the wound so the Lesterin wouldn't bleed out, using his mask power to take care of it quickly. Getting the limb back...would be another thing. Now he had to take care of Suhaku. The medic made his way over to the Turaga. Shrapnel jutted out of her back, and Triage once again administered the same painkiller to her. Maybe it would work, maybe it was just a nice gesture. But it, hopefully, dulled the pain enough. Shrapnel was far more tricky to deal with: removing each bit of protodermic metal manually was tempting, but risky, especially while the ship was still under fire and moving. It would have probably done more harm than good at the moment, and the medic concluded the best shot would be to use his Kanohi. As the Hauora's effect passed over the wounds, the bits of shrapnel were displaced by the healing "skin" and clattered to the floor of the cargo bay. Drained by the usage of his mask, Triage forced himself to stand so as not to slump against the hull of the battered ship, lest he become the next one in need of medical aid. "M...Mega," he said, turning to the Matoran. "Help me get these two clear of the walls, they'd be better protected inside Yaushe. Just...just like Po-Koro. We're doing this just like Po-Koro." @BULiK@ZippyWharrgarbl
  11. IC: Nale Vella - On top of the Tranquility Magnet girl...? I suppose it's not the worst nickname. "This is all well and good," Nale said, getting to her feet and carefully walking over to Kat, Keitara, and the new hole in the ship's hull the former had made. "But we should probably get inside. It's a bit chilly out here, don't you all think?" The Toa of Magnetism looked to Skorm, glancing to the Taku briefly as she spoke. "Good luck with your plan. Let's hurry this along before the day gets any harder." Nale then turned her attention to Kei. "You can cloak us all once we're inside, but if it becomes too much of a strain we can just do stealth the old-fashioned way," she said, then paused once she was standing on the edge of the opening, and again placed her hand on her audio receptor. "Knichou, we've linked up with some other Taku crewmembers here, conveniently. Going dark now, I'll contact you again when we've...resolved this." With that, she dropped down inside the ship. @Conway@Keeper of Kraata@TL01 NUVA@The UltimoScorp
  12. IC: Nale Vella - Metru-Koro Airspace/The Tranquility ("Spread your wings and fly. God be with you.") As the wind rushed past Nale's audio receptors and her heartrate skyrocketed, she tried to orient herself and the others towards their target: the largest of the League ships, the Tranquility. At the moment, it had begun rising upwards, firing on the Taku in retaliation, with Nale's team of jumpers right between the two ships. The Toa of Magnetism spread her arms and legs out into a glide formation to better aim for it and avoid any stray gunfire, while her HUD displayed all the necessary info (although this was all still new enough for her to not know what all of it meant) including her rapidly descending altitude. The numbers and icons flashing across her optics didn't obstruct her vision, but still distracted her as it sat in her peripheral, prompting her to quickly blink twice to close it out. She could eyeball it. As they neared closer to the ship, she extended her spear and aimed it towards the upper deck of the Tranquility, focusing her element through it in an attempt to draw the team closer to their target and make for a more controlled landing. At first the pull was weak, but as they quickly closed the distance it became stronger, until Nale felt they were sufficiently in range and she let go of her element. Breaking off from Skorm and Irna, she hit the surface of the airship and rolled (the thought of ending up off the side of it and impacting the ground below briefly crossing her mind), before stopping in a crouched position. It was then she noticed her HUD had become scrambled, and she couldn't retract her spear--something had, briefly, cut off the communication between her and her nanites. Once the interference cleared, a relieved Nale contacted Knichou, raising her voice to be heard above the wind and gunfire. Despite not really being necessary, she reflexively placed a hand over her audio receptor as if wearing an earpiece. "--ichou? It's Nale. We've made it to our DZ. About to find a way inside. Will update." The Fa-Toa then glanced over her shoulder to check on her companions, before looking ahead to see--what in Karzahni?!--Kat and Keitara on the ship as well. She didn't remember this part of the plan... "Fancy seeing you two," Nale said, raising her voice again. @BULiK@Conway@Keeper of Kraata@Toru Nui
  13. IC: Korio Karasha - Wastes Me instincts. Right. You got it, Miss Yumi. The Vo-Skakdi narrowed his eyes at Zataka, and his grin turned into a sneer. "This 'toy' has a body count. You can never be too careful, right? Just makin' sure we're all on the same page 'ere, s'all." Korio then shrugged slightly, and lowered his crossbow. The mark still didn't have the upper hand. She wasn't in control here. Kor just didn't want to screw things up for his queen, and once Zataka was aboard he'd be keeping an eye on her. Maybe two. Well, he only had two, but... ...the Skakdi wasn't sure where this train of thought was going. He'd be watching her, is what he meant. @EmperorWhenua@pokemonlover360@Vezok's Friend
