  1. IC: Morangad - Grand Temple Ruins The Tiokaha hummed satisfactorily as his investigation of the room concluded. He had gathered that there was some puzzle or riddle to be solved in this place, but it was apparent that the solution was not contained in this room alone. Reaching out with his mind, his consciousness brushed up against that of his Aspect companion. Apex, he communicated wordlessly, there is writing in this room that you may be able to decipher. I went down the center hallway. OOC: @Sparticus147 @Unreliable Narrator
  2. IC: Providence - Ruins of Fire The Aspect bowed his head in thought, raising a pensive hand to rest beneath his faceplate's chin. After a moment, he responded. "Such a deal would be agreeable to me, if it is agreeable to Zak-Yak. But--" and at this his hand left his faceplate and extended its index finger - "What boon would you consider as being equal in value to a heartlight?" OOC: @~Xemnas~ @Kal the Guardian @Sparticus147 @Snelly @Vezok's Friend IC: Ollem - The Falls With the raft secured mere yards from the trailhead, Ollem was off like a lightning bolt. Despite having been a nervous, starving, dehydrated wreck when Mahrika had met him, the Onu-Matoran had seemingly been revitalized in the short time they'd known each other, leaving Mahrika to wonder how much of this change had arisen purely as a result of her own presence. Presently, Ollem was charging up the trailhead - though as his sense of caution caught back up to his astounded sense of curiosity, he halted, turning to make sure that Mahrika was able to keep up with his pace, as they advanced together towards the grand and statuesque waterfall that bore the likeness of a Kanohi Kaukau. OOC: @Harvali @Unreliable Narrator
  3. Think you missed this in your last Ruins of Air response. Would Morangad's search turn up anything? @Unreliable Narrator
  4. IC: Barius - Base of Irnakk's Tooth Barius sighed shallowly as he leaned himself back against the windshield of the E. Street, taking care not to inhale too deeply all at once, lest he send pain spiking through his midsection again. He wondered what Drukarus was doing with Grime. He half-expected the Skak to free the poor wretch-- that didn't bother him, so long as the spiny bugger paid up after the fact. He looked up at the stars, and at the silhouette of Irnakk's Tooth that blotted out a portion of the field in which they twinkled. He had always been impressed with the apparent permanence of the night sky... it was something which he desired for himself, without ever realizing that it was but an illusion. Indeed, if he had watched the stars more often, and committed their arrangements to his memory, he might even have seen for himself just how impermanent they were... But he had not, and he did not not. And amidst his newfound warband, he eventually drifted off to sleep. OOC: @Sparticus147 @Conway @Nato the Traveler @Unreliable Narrator IC: Morangad - Grand Temple Ruins Morangad stepped back from the wall as his examination confirmed what he had suspected: These carvings were written in the Aspect tongue. He wondered if this was what Apex had been looking for. Stepping lightly over the infinite void of space that paradoxically extended away from his feet, he made his way over to the two walls of pipes, examining them for any mechanism, indication of their purpose, or any other feature of note. Black and white, he observed... there had to be some sort of significance to that. OOC: @Unreliable Narrator IC: Ollem - Naho Bay Ollem huffed with consternation at Mahlika's question. "I don't know how we would, short of going there ourselves." Half of him hoped the beast did flatten the other survivors' settlement. The other half saw hundreds of bobbing Skakdi corpses and wanted that to never happen to anyone again. "In any case, if the creature's heading that way, there's no way for us to beat it there." He stood up straight, seeming to have convinced himself, if not Mahrika. "Ah, we're almost to our destination. All hands on deck," he jokingly ordered. They would both need to work together to pull the raft onto the beach beside the trailhead leading up to the mask. OOC: @Harvali
  5. IC: Providence - Outside Ruins of Fire Providence waited until Whira joined Cravious in turning and beginning to walk away, then uttered a single word. "Spiriah." OOC: @Sparticus147 @Kal the Guardian @~Xemnas~ @Snelly @Vezok's Friend
  6. IC: Providence - Outside Ruins of Fire Providence paused for a moment, considering what he could possibly offer in return for the Heartlight. He wasn't sure what this mortal would value, but he did know one thing that the other Aspect might. "I don't know about Zak-Yak himself," he said, "but I have nothing material to offer you. I can, however, offer you a boon..." He turned his gaze from Cravious to Whira. "Or... knowledge." OOC: @Sparticus147 @Kal the Guardian @~Xemnas~ @Snelly @Vezok's Friend
  7. IC: Providence - Outside Fire Ruins Providence's frown deepened. "Well, that's--" He cut himself off, looking at Zak-Yak as he worked things out in his mind. He'd wanted to desecrate Zak-Yak himself, but he wasn't sure if his Mesi friend cared exactly who would be doing the desecrating. Which meant that the blind Skakdi might opt to take that deal. He had to tread carefully, from this point forward. But wait. If Cravious was trying to steal his follower... Why didn't he try to steal Cravious? He smiled, mind working in overdrive. "I suppose you can be forgiven for not realizing. You see, I, myself, am also an Aspect. It is my intention to desecrate my friend here - whose name is Zak-Yak, by the way - myself. But I'm curious, since you seem to be an enterprising, economically-minded individual. Just what drew you to make a deal with this Whira, over any other Aspect?" OOC: @Sparticus147 @Kal the Guardian @~Xemnas~ @Snelly @Vezok's Friend
  8. IC: Morangad - Grand Temple Ruins Toa Lewa... He mulled the unfamiliar name over in his mind. "Just what 'salvation' are you referring to?" He asked the Administrator. While he conversed with the voice, he figured he might as well explore some more. Noting that Apex had gone right, he stepped forward through the middle door, stepping around the long-sullied pool where a single white lotus grew. OOC: @Eyru @Nato the Traveler @Sparticus147 @Unreliable Narrator
  9. IC: Barius - Base of Irnakk's Tooth Barius could only smirk in response to Drukarus' reply, looking up at the peak of the volcano as he spoke. "A god is merely what we call the most powerful class of beings known to us. If you doubt their existence, you have made the mistake of setting your sights too high." His gaze lowered, scanning the warband. "I've seen fewer Matoran in my lifetime than I could count on one hand. Up until yesterday, anyhow. But we've got one with us, why don't you ask him?" He pushed himself off the hood of the Wagon and barked to whoever could hear. "Where's Grime!? Someone bring Grime here!" Almost as an afterthought, he added: "Gently!" OOC: @Sparticus147 @Nato the Traveler @Conway @Unreliable Narrator Calling on a throwaway NPC from page 3. IC: Providence - Outside Ruins of Fire Providence stood still as the situation escalated, and it didn't seem like Zak-Yak was going to back down. When the Mesi called on him and Varian for aid, he suddenly sprung into motion, moving forward swiftly but cautiously, hands raised in a gesture of mediation. "Well, hold on now, we wouldn't want things to get... Mesi here, now would we?" His faceplate twisted in a grin. No one laughed. His faceplate twisted in a frown. "Listen, listen..." He gestured to the briefcase. He'd sensed the contents, probed the shadows within the container, but had been unable to distinguish the ACR key within from the other two heartlights. "You've got three heartlights in there. Surely you don't need all of them, do you? Perhaps you could give just one to my dear, misguided friend here." He clapped a hand onto Zak-Yak's shoulder. "You know-- in the interests of friendship?" OOC: @Sparticus147 @Kal the Guardian @~Xemnas~ @Snelly @Vezok's Friend
  10. IC: Ollem - Naho Bay "Right," Ollem muttered in reply, probably unheard as Mahrika took off into the water, searching for salvage. He turned, and started trudging along the shoreline, collecting anything of use that had already washed ashore. OOC: @Harvali @Unreliable Narrator
  11. IC: Barius - Base of Irnakk's Tooth Barius scratched his chin, mulling over the other Skak's musings. "I reckon the most reasonable explanation is that our two worlds had some contact with one another, prior to now. Maybe your giant robot originally came from this world, some time ago?" OOC: @Sparticus147 @Conway @Nato the Traveler IC: Morangad - Grand Temple Ruins The Administrator, hm? And what was that about prayer? He supposed Apex had mentioned that this was a temple... "I am Morangad," he said. Standing there, still uncertain where to look when addressing this strange, disembodied voice, he dug for something to ask the 'Administrator' in return. "Who constructed this temple?" OOC: @Unreliable Narrator @Nato the Traveler @Eyru By the way, would Morangad ever have heard of 'the Builders' before? IC: Ollem - The Collection of Flotsam Formerly Known As 'The Rig' Ollem stood in place, idly tugging his feet out of the sucking embrace of the sodden sand on the shore, only to bury them again for lack of firmer footing. His gaze was fixed upon the likeness of a Kanohi that waited across the bay. "Oh! Maybe we could find some flotsam to use as a raft? Might be easier and quicker than walking around this muddy shoreline." He turned his head to look out into the bay, where specks of rainbow colors marked corpses that were scattered among the gleaming metal wreckage, uncertain whether he had ought to say the next bit. When he ultimately did, his voice was a tad quieter: "And, perhaps some things of value can be salvaged from... all that." OOC: @Harvali
  12. IC: Barius - Base of Irnakk's Tooth Barius smirked. "Sure thing. Come up and pop a squat," he said, patting the empty bit of hood next to him. He found it rather ballsy of Drukarus to ask to share the hood of the E. Street Wagon - effectively his temporary throne - with him, but he wasn't about to look the coward by saying no. He got the sense that Skakdi from the head were somewhat less brutal than their wasteland-dwelling counterparts. This was a supposition born of Drukarus' reactions to a number of things Barius had said, as well as of the newfound knowledge that he claimed to be a former warchief. That position, among the warskaks Barius knew, was not one that someone retired from; it was held until your successor killed you for it. The fact that Drukarus could claim to have retired from it peaceably - and indeed, without even seeming to bear any debilitating wounds from the experience - suggested that things, perhaps, worked differently in the world the purple Skak had left behind. Either that, or Drukarus was lying. But given his build and age, and the weapon he wielded, he certainly could have been a warchief. "Now, perhaps I misunderstood what you related to me at the volcano's mouth..." He began, before sitting up and turning his torso towards his conversation partner. He suppressed the grunt of pain that sought its way out of his lungs at the motion, though he could not help but grimace for a brief moment. "But, I believe you did say that the land from which you hailed - which also bore the name Zakaz - was not included within the skull that impacted our western horizon a week back? I am curious what does lie within it." OOC: @Sparticus147 @Conway @Nato the Traveler IC: Morangad - Grand Temple Ruins Morangad moved with all the swiftness of a wild rahi towards the entrance, spear already in hand. The dead silence of his footsteps gave way to a soft thud as his boots found the mossy flagstones of the temple's floor. An electric sensation passed through him upon crossing the threshold, but he paid it no heed; his newfound ally's potential need for assistance was his primary concern. Bursting into the chamber, his worry was only compounded when he found that he could not see what troubled his Aspect companion. His mind raced, considering what manner of swamp creature could pose a threat to Apex, while also being stealthy enough to evade his sight. "Where is the danger?" He demanded, weapon held before him. His eyes darted around the room, searching for a foe to slay. OOC: @Sparticus147 @Nato the Traveler @Eyru IC: Ollem - Near the Bay "I don't know if we'll find anything. I don't know if we'd have found anything before that thing flooded the entire bay; but it's our only lead right now, so we haven't got much choice but to investigate it." He watched as the Tahtorak stamped off out of sight. "Either way, I suspect the safest place to be is wherever that beast has already finished with." That made sense, right? Admittedly, he didn't know the first thing about rahi. Why would he? He hadn't worked in the archives, nor in the stables. OOC: @Harvali
  13. IC: Morangad - Grand Temple Ruins Morangad stood motionless as he listened to Taja's reply, face inscrutable. "I assure you, that is not our intention. Our goal is to seek a means of defending against the Skakdi you mention - if not launching an offensive against them - and, more to the point, to restore the land that they have destroyed over the generations of their terrible reign." OOC: @Eyru @Nato the Traveler @Sparticus147 IC: Ollem - Near the Bay He shuddered. "I don't know, Mahrika. But if there is any way to destroy it, I doubt it has anything to do with us. We should just stay far, far out of its way." OOC: @Harvali
  14. IC: Providence - Ruins of FIre Providence had, indeed, followed. Moreover, he seemed to have overheard Takadox's muttering. "I thought the same thing. Though if the Mesi were harboring an Aspect in that well, it must have been very powerful and ancient, indeed..." He watched Zak-Yak's attempt to steal the briefcase with bemusement. He was prepared to step in and deescalate the situation, if it seemed his Mesi companion was to be the loser in this conflict; however, he was not about to interrupt prematurely.
