IC: Okuo - Ga-Metru

Okuo stroked his chin, silent for a good moment before he finally spoke up. "You know, that's actually not such a bad idea. But what about your mask? Someone might recognise you. Do you want me to get a new one for you?"

 

IC: Arkius - Po-Metru

"Alright, Stannis and... you?" Arkius pointed to Tallea. "Talia, was it? What do your senses or vision detect? I can feel an inverted pyramid resting upon fine grain sand down there."

IC: Oreius | Temple Assault

There—he spotted a Toa of Gravity at the edge of the battle. Jephro was focused on a massive being who seemed to be dealing with multiple opponents with ease. Oreius gripped his remaining sword as he watched the titan withstand damage that would incapacitate or kill any normal person. If he distracted Jephro, this colossus would wipe the ground with his allies. He needed to help them take it out.

The fire had abated a little: the League soldiers didn't want to shoot their champion. Oreius took advantage of this lull to duck out from the rubble and approach the battle proper. As he did, he activated his mask.

His Kanohi was always on at a low level, constantly feeding him information about his environment and the beings around him. It was his sacred duty to carry this mask: a lesser man might abuse its power for his own gain, or eventually be worn down by the incessant tide of mental noise. But the Toa of Fire served Mata Nui alone, and so he stood firm amidst the torrent of knowledge. Like a rock, he withstood the current and let it pass around him; he was in the river, but not of it.

As he walked forward, he filtered out the information he didn't need, focusing the brunt of his mask's power on the titanic being of unknown species. The mask would cause certain points to catch his eye, as though they were reflecting a light. Oreius noted a few weak points in the being's armour—places where a sharp knife could slip in with minimal effort. But even those weaknesses seemed muted, like his Kanohi was pointing them out halfheartedly. Like they would allow only false pain and temporary injury.

Oreius frowned, and continued to focus. His mask glowed as it probed his chosen opponent, searching for its true weakness.

IC: Nale Vella - Po-Metru

Deciding to follow the newcomers to the site, leaving Stannis and co. to discuss their own findings, Nale activated her Kakama and zipped over to the Taku, skidding to a stop (and kicking up a load of sand) just ahead of the transport and Vashni's hoverbike. She wiped her brow to be dramatic.

Tallea - Metru-Nui - Po-Metru

IC: "This whole thing is a pyramid without a tip. From what I can see...there's an entryway into the pyramid where that tip should be with a passageway leading to something that I can't see. Which is somewhat worrying. Likely going to be something nasty at the center of this place." She glanced over at Stannis. "Feel like digging?"


"I serve the weak. I serve the helpless. I am their sword and their shield. If you want to strike at them, you must go through me, and I am not so easily moved."

IC Kanohi - Po-Metru

As the Taku took off Kanohi had been hanging to it’s underside, mending the hull. As the airship took off he lurched from underneath it, but his grappling gun held. He clung to the Taku’s underside, not able to do much easy but hold on tight. There were no towers here to try to grapple to, just barren stone. He couldn’t get off if he wanted to, just hold on and hope the wind wasn’t too violent.

IC: Thom - Silver Sea Island (Facing Death)

The Skakdi was almost in shock, staring at the hole that was quickly healing in Kal's head, so Kal's grab made is mark, clutching him by the throat.

IC: Kovac Krossfari - Ga-Metru (Duel)

The Vo-Toa craned his neck, briefly watching the Matoran flee.

"No. Just me." He corrected, as the Shadow swung his sword in a calculated arc, aiming for the assassin's head. 

IC: Leonn - Po-Metru (In Pursuit)

The spy grunted, turning on the throttle as the transport gave chase to the airship.

IC: Kal - Temple Assault

Before anything or anyone had a chance to intervene, Kal grasped Thom by the throat... or rather, by the thing around his throat. In one swift motion, Kal grabbed the collar, and with all of his might, ripped it apart and away from Thom. Kal had encountered these collars before. They were used to coerce prisoners into fighting for a cause they didn't believe in, monitoring their heartbeat to ensure they couldn't just be removed. But they didn't count on Kal's speed and strength. Before the collar could even detect the lack of heartbeat, the collar was already split in twain and thrust away from Thom. Not even a second later the two halves of the collar were flying in two separate directions, away from Thom and Kal. A resounding explosion burnt and battered Kal's back, but his giant body shielded Thom from harm.

"Now begone, craven. And when you're ready, find me on Zakaz." With that, Kal turned around and took out his sword again, grimacing and grunting as his gravity increased once again, his eyes spotting two toa charging directly at him. A flex of his bicep spurted out sickly blood and a couple of the thorns the plantlife toa had shot at him. In particular, Kal's eye was on the toa of plasma.

IC: Ardoku - Temple Assault

Ardoku paused for a moment as a resounding explosion went off in front of him, before the smoke cleared to reveal the skakdi unharmed, and the towering being turning to face him and his fellow toa. Ardoku grimaced, and resumed his charge, taking out his dagger. With a focused twitch of his eyes, Ardoku suddenly vanished into thin air...

Only for Kal to disappear at that same moment. As the two of them seemed to swap places, Ardoku gasped in shock and confusion, turning around to see Kal standing next to the other toa. It was in the moment following that in which he could feel his sword arm fall off, a clean cut through the bicep having completely severed the limb from his body, with a complete through cut a third into his chest. Ardoku spit up blood and collapsed to his knees, clutching the bleeding stub and his chest wound. He could feel his lung collapsing.

Meanwhile, Kal was now standing before Tekmo, a familiar scene playing out as he swung his sword down at the battered toa, smoke trailing off the titan's scorched back.

As Oreius followed the action, he could now see the Titan's front side, and there on his chest he could see a glowing mark. A singular true weakness. The titan's heart. Strange that he could not see it from the back...

OOC: @Harvali Kanohi should be able to enter the bridge by climbing to the hatch on the top

IC: Knichou, Po-Metru Great Disk Anomaly Site, Bridge of the Taku

Not being able to see much more than a large flat stone area down below, Knichou instead turned to his instruments to monitor teh ship's status. The Taku had a basic radar package for aiding in navigation, which was displayed on a panel to the side. It was especially useful for flying in dark conditions like today, and so Knichou was paying a bit more attention than usual so he didn't bump into any nearby statues.

On the panel was a rough topographical map of the area built out of miniature pillars like in the coliseum. Some pillars would light up to indicate anything unusual, like the many raised statues nearby. He saw a large blip of the vahki transport the other disk hunters had taken move up to the anomaly site, and fainter blips on pillars of those walking over. On the far edge of the map, suddenly there was suddenly a new object detected, about the size of the disk hunters' transport and moving quickly towards them.

With one hand, Knichou began to slowly rotate the airship around to face the direction of the newcomers so he could get a look out the bridge windows. With his other hand, Knichou flicked the radio to broadcast to Nale's frequency and grabbed the transmitter.

"Watch out, we've got a land vehicle approaching from the South, though it's too far away to see clearly right now, Over."

IC: Vyarik - Po-Metru 

As the transport drew closer, Vyarik stood up and moved to the railing, trying to get a closer look at the scene they were approaching. Though it was difficult to discern amidst the darkness and dust, it certainly looked like their's wasn't the only transport inbound towards the airship's location.

"Let's not charge in guns blazing, at least until we know who else is out here," he suggested to his companions, "Remember, today we're lawful enforcers operating on the behalf of the Turaga. It's public knowledge, and we can turn that to our advantage."

IC: Tekmo (Silver Sea, Temple Assault)

Remembering what happened last time he tried to block Kal's sword with his shield, Tekmo instead tries to dodge out of the way.

 

IC: Waveahk (Po-Metru, Sculpture Fields, Vahki Transport)

"Oh please. Matoran worship Toa. Silly things like logic and reason do not apply to them... but, yes, best to be cautious."

IC: Skyra - Temple Assault - 

What the actual ####!? Nothing was making sense anymore, first the sky went crazy, the flipping dead were rising up, and now this guy...was he even alive? Or was he some kind of unkillable monster that could shrug off fatal injuries like he had merely stubbed his toe?

"W-What the heck is this guy? Is he u-undead or something?" Skyra wasn't behaving like her usual self, she normally showed no fear, no hesitation, and she always had a quip or two ready to go. But instead of her usual, carefree self was someone who looked like she was on the verge of losing her nerve completely. 

She didn't like the idea of the walking corpses, the dead should stay dead! She finally took aim at Kal and fired three blasts from her Midak Skyblaster, the orbs of light flying quickly at his chest.

IC: Rose - Temple Assault (Kal of Duty)

"Doesn't. Matter. Everything dies eventually--some things just need a little extra killing."

An equally unsettled Rose fired off a couple fireballs at the green entity, Kal's ability to survive seemingly fatal attacks reminding her of the zombies she'd encountered on the beach earlier. 

@Snelly

IC: Idlyx Haeve - Ga-Metru (Vs. Kovac)

The Hunter lamented the fact his target had escaped, wondering if Okuo had been the reason the contract had been left unfinished last time. Pity...

A loud CLANG reverberated through the alleyway as Kovac's sword met Idlyx's bladed gauntlet, and electricity began coursing through his opponents weapon, bound to give the Toa a nasty jolt.

"Shocking, isn't it?"

The non-existent audience would've groaned.

@Dane

IC: Nale Vella - Po-Metru

The Fa-Toa audibly groaned into the radio, then turned to everyone present. "Knichou says we've got company. Stannis, you don't think it's that Hunter from before, do you? Maybe it's just some carvers passing through."

@EmperorWhenua
