  1. IC: Skorm (Metru-Koro) As he looked on at Irna and Mazor talking, Skorm racked his mind. This... didn't seem new, but in his head, there had been something. That ineffable feeling, that loss, stung all the more alongside the loss of Skorm's past. "Kei, you rest up at Irna's. I'm going to try to find Tekmo. Or at least my car." OOC: @TL01 NUVA
  2. IC: Skorm (Metru-Koro) The Twi-Toa smiled. "Kei... You don't need to make anything up to us." Skorm's smile faded and he backed out of the embrace, looking out the entrance to the hut. "This island... it feels like its the end of the world. Again, even if we won the day here. My debt's paid, and I don't think sticking around is gonna good for me." OOC: @Conway @TL01 NUVA
  3. @Unreliable Narrator I should mention that Skorm was so directly affected by the radiation because it was directly being emitted by Keitara, not just background radiation. At the same time, while it was very debilitating, he was able to shield himself by creating a void of shadow around himself.
  4. IC: Skorm (Metru-Koro) Scowling, Skorm set down the Rhotuka launcher and sword on the scorched ground, and tossed Ostrox his Mahiki. As he turned away, he continued focusing his glare on the Leaguer. "Don't us regret this, zealot." Turning from Ostrox, Skorm flipped up the hood of his robes. Did Ostrox have a point? There were entire kingdoms of adherents to his position. But Skorm didn't have a choice, nor did others under the Barraki. If he had benefited from the status quo, he didn't remember. It didn't erase it, but it was hardly directly relevant; beyond some scattered nightmares, he couldn't remember anything before he served under Takadox. No, his own lack of involvement did little to assuage that the Matoran society had repressed others, but the Six Kingdoms hardly offered a better alternative. This island was lethal, but at least it offered a chance to build something new, where everyone could be equal as they fought for their lives. Skorm stopped beside his Zyglak friend. "Irna," he said, much softer than when he had been speaking to Ostrox, "What's wrong?" OOC: @Toru Nui @Conway @Smudge8@Nato the Traveler@Onaku@The UltimoScorp@TL01 NUVA@Tarn
  5. IC: Skorm (Metru-Koro) Narrowing his eyes, Skorm steadied his grip on the rhotuka launcher. "Easy, Ostrox. Don't forget the situation here." Though to tell the truth, part of him was glad the madman seemed to find another target to vent his bile. He spotted the Hordika in front of the crumpled remains of one of the attacking airships; Zaliyah, he remembered. A curious individual, he recalled from his time in service to the League. Her armor was new, but it was hard not to recognize the Hordika. "Zaliyah," he called out. "Please tell me you're the one we can turn this prisoner over to?" OOC: @Conway @Toru Nui @Nato the Traveler @Smudge8 @Tarn
  6. IC: Skorm (Metru-Koro) As Skorm marched Ostrox into the ruins of Metru-Koro, his scowl lifted into merely a frown. "If what they're saying is true about a truce, we're going to turn you back over to them. Then you can have your weapons back." He shot a glance over at Irna. "And go on your rant, I suppose." OOC: @Toru Nui @Conway @ultimoscorp @TL01 NUVA @Tarn
  7. Pretty sure Skorm had already spilled the beans on that back when the expedition got back after radiation poisoning ruined the trip, at least in regards to himself.
  8. IC: Skorm (Metru-Koro Outskirts) The Twi-Toa's head snapped to Kei as she sank to the ground. Irna had her, at least; they could recover back at the village. The night was eerily still; for now, at least, the battle had drawn to a halt, if not a conclusion. "I don't have anything. Metru-Koro, the refugee settlement, has huts. You can continue explaining in one of those if you left any standing, since you're so insistent." He gestured the rhotuka launcher at the village. "Walk." OOC: @Toru Nui @Conway @TL01 NUVA
  9. IC: Skorm (Metru-Koro Outskirts) "If you have accusations to level, Ostrox, speak them in Matoran; its rude to discuss someone's decisions when they cannot properly defend their own actions." Skorm pulled out the rhotuka launcher that Ostrox had surrendered. "Besides, you've surrendered. If you keep attempting to obfuscate your words, I find out what exactly happens when I fire one of these." OOC: @Toru Nui@Conway@Tarn@TL01 NUVA@The UltimoScorp
  10. IC: Skorm (Metru-Koro Outskirts) As he approached, Skorm crouched and put a hand on Keitara's shoulder. "You did fine, Kei." The warmth in his gaze evaporated as he turned to Ostrox. "Ivu urx Irna montrakar nazron urx rennec, Ostrox." Skorm stood, taking a step towards the Leaguer. "Oh yes, I learned the tongues of my masters when I was a servant to the Barraki. I was brainwashed, my mind broken; Takadox ensured I would be a 'model servant' of the Six Kingdoms." He pointed to Mata Nui's head in the distance. "When the poisoned thoughts in my head were cured, I didn't switch sides. I'm only fighting you right now because you're bombing refugees. I came close to killing the rahi-headed turaga that denied your peace deal! My loyalty was never mine to give until a week ago." Skorm's eyes narrowed as his heartstone ached in his chest. "I've given my loyalty to those that have decided that I'm worth caring about. Your idea of honor was to destroy a settlement of refugees with militarized airships. I wasn't lying up there, Ostrox; this island, Zakaz, its brutal. Fighting each other over the past isn't the answer right now." OOC: @Toru Nui @Conway @TL01 NUVA @ultimoscorp @Tarn
  11. IC: Skorm (Metru-Koro Airspace) As the last of the others jumped, Skorm tucked away the weapons and mask he had confiscated. He flinched as lightning brightened the sky; a shadow jump might be dangerous right now, but it looked as if he hadn't left himself much of a choice. Skorm stepped off the ship, dissipating into shadow. Once more the world was thrown into a near-silent contrast of negatives. The flash of weaponsfire lit the landscape as Skorm drifted to the ground. Like a cloud he hit the ground close to where the others were landing, his form swirling as it reformed. Skorm's body reformed from the shadow. "I'm right here, Irna, I'm fine." OOC: @TL01 NUVA @Tarn @Toru Nui @The UltimoScorp @Conway
  12. IC: Skorm (Metru-Koro Airspace, Tranquility Bridge) "Alright," Skorm shouted, "Ground is looking awful close. Anybody who can't turn into living shadow, grab your chute and jump now." He punctuated this by blowing out another window with a shadow blast, allowing the roaring wind outside to underline the importance of his statement Putting one foot on the console ready to jump, he looked at the others; his feeling right now were... complicated. Seeing one of his old comrades again, had been just like the old days. Except this time, he wasn't blind to the hatred he had supported, that he had killed for. He wanted to be off this ship. Off this ship and to watch it plunge into the ground, so he could bury the memories it dredged up. OOC: @Toru Nui, @The UltimoScorp, @Tarn, @Conway, @TL01 NUVA
  13. IC: Skorm (Metru-Koro Airspace, Tranquility Bridge) It warmed Skorm's heart to see Irna and Kei again after confronting a remnant of Skorm's past. "I don't think there's anyone else on board except Vahki. If we're going to bail, we should do it now." Skorm retracted his wristblades and made his way to Ostrox, extending both hands. One was palm up as if he expected Ostrox to hand him something, the other was palm forward, ready to blast him. "Sword and kanohi, or I ensure your chute suffers an unfortunate malfunction on the way down." OOC: @Toru Nui, @The UltimoScorp, @Tarn, @Conway, @TL01 NUVA
  14. IC: Skorm (Metru-Koro Airspace, Tranquility Bridge) "I reject your notions of a binary universe, Ostrox." Skorm leveled his hand at the Leaguer, charging it with light energy. "I didn't 'switch sides,' I woke up and started fighting for what I wanted. And I know I'm not the only one; you can always take another option." Skorm pivoted, and shot the remaining Vahki at the controls with a laser. OOC: @Toru Nui
  15. IC: Skorm (Metru-Koro Airspace, Tranquility Bridge) The world Skorm saw when he was a shadow was one of contrasting negatives. The lightstones he had drained were already starting to return to their full brightness; Skorm had a limited window to hide. Though he barely heard Ostrox and the Vahki first officer, he recognized the staves the Vahki held: Presence... it could track him, read his very mind. Effectively, it nullified most advantage he could claim in this fight, and it knew it; back in the League, he had read reports that Rorzahk squads could track one matoran criminal to break up an entire crime ring. Skorm's shadow form coalesced on the Vahki, and he reappeared above the Rorzahk, falling upon it; one wristblade went through its eye socked, the other directly into the top of its cranial processor. The enforcer crumpled beneath him; as Skorm rose, he finished off the twitching vahki with a shadow blast into its exposed head. His hands flexed and squeezed as he stared down Ostrox. "I was brainwashed by Takadox into serving with you. Objectively, the League won. I just want the fighting to stop; neither side is blameless. Your side, however, is bombarding a refugee settlement. Stand down now, or I finish this right now." OOC: @Toru Nui
