Unknown Isles, Near Darkest Shadow lands

 

IC 

 

The night had fallen quickly, Dark River reflected, this was a good sign. The Darkness was strong at the moment, having the upper hand against the vile Bright Spirit and his foul handmaiden, Death. Dark River lifted his muzzle to the sky, testing the air for any sign of game or other members of his tribe. The air was thick with scents, flowers in bloom, the crisp smell of leaves and the refreshing tones of fresh water. He could smell his companions of course, four of them trailed behind him, waiting for his commands. They looked much like him, large dark-haired wolves with shining red eyes. The most powerful defenders of the dark, a combination of man's brilliance and the wolves courage. Truly the Darkness had chosen well. Dark River lowered his muzzle and looked at the path ahead, the twisting trees and thick brush hid much...but if one knew the old signs of his people, they would never truly be lost.

 

One of those signs loomed ahead of them, a simple circular stone, with jagged line symbols sliced into it, a carving of a spider marking it's center. One of their monuments to the dead was nearby. Dark River cast his gaze back to his four comrades, one of them was still laden with a small Travois that held their supplies, clothing and food all wrapped into a neat bundle. They would have enough food to stay camped at the site for many moons, rather fortunate considering channeling mana was an uncertain enterprise at best. He had been unable to scent any other members of his tribes on the wind, which was disappointing he had hoped to be able to send word back to the council. They had dispatched him and his party some time ago and would no doubt be wanting word before long. On a whim, Dark River threw his head back and howled. The haunting sound would be carried on the wind and, hopefully, reach the ears of one his tribe. 

 

With that, he trotted forwards, party in tow.

[font="'courier new', courier, monospace;"]OOC[/font]

[font="'courier new', courier, monospace;"]Bit of an important news flash here folks. For plot stuffs, I'm going to time skip us a few days into the future. No current interactions will be affected (Power is still talking to his basement-spirit in the past, for instance), but keep in mind that a few days still have passed. I guess the gravesite thing right above me takes place in the now-present. Keep in mind that throughout this, the sun's been having some issues, namely that it's starting to flicker and dark spots are growing larger and larger.[/font]

 

[font="'courier new', courier, monospace;"]IC [To Basilisk]:[/font]

 

[font="'courier new', courier, monospace;"]Death was always something the Final Conclave viewed as an oddity.[/font]

 

[font="'courier new', courier, monospace;"]Four able men carried their fallen comrade on a platform made of woven reed and pieces of firm stick, while a medicine woman trailed behind them, occasionally tossing down a combination of salt and flowers to ward off any evil that might attempt to follow them. They were heading to a nearby monument, not constructed by them but rather one of their neighbors to the north. The Conclave had little purpose with monuments, but they preferred to rest their comrades here all the same. Death was not a simple process, rather a long and intricate series of challenges and hurdles to overcome to achieve true happiness. There was safety in numbers, and so they would make sure that their companion's soul would rest easy here.[/font]

 

[font="'courier new', courier, monospace;"]When the pack from Darkest Shadows arrived on the scene they would find the medicine lady sprinkling a strange dust on the dead man's body, and then, oil made from one of the smaller sea monsters that had been found. With that a quick brush of a torch set the body alight, roaring into the night sky as it crackled and burned with in full glory.[/font]

 

[font="'courier new', courier, monospace;"]IC [To Power][Present]:[/font]

 

[font="'courier new', courier, monospace;"]A strange thing happened at Sky Reach to Sky.[/font]

 

[font="'courier new', courier, monospace;"]As the dim morning sun rose into the sky, tribesmen and women would awake to find a procession along the path leading directly into the ziggurat. Eight tall and gray-skinned beings advanced through the collection of huts outside, into the stone base and instantly navigating to where they knew someone of importance would be. Their forms seemed... less than corporeal, however, flickering in and out of existence depending on what angle they were viewed at. It was obvious that they were not to be seen, but the centuries of spiritual understanding had allowed the tribe to view them anyways. Regardless, none stood to stop them, as really, would you want to stop eight heavily muscled and seven foot tall humanoids?[/font]

 

[font="'courier new', courier, monospace;"]They eventually came across someone of importance, an elder shaman. The group's leader stood forward, and conversed in the tongue of Sky Reach to Sky. "Greetings, shaman. We need to discuss the sun. Please, gather all those who can do something."[/font]

 

[font="'courier new', courier, monospace;"]IC [To Xom]:[/font]

 

[font="'courier new', courier, monospace;"]In the village of the Mayincatec, something similar though slightly less theatrical happened. Instead of eight, there were three, and they made no efforts to demonstrate their appearance. People saw flickers of movement in the corners of their eyes, but never anything solid. It was not until they had done a similar process and tracked down an elder shaman that they became fully visible, their forms ceasing to shimmer in and out. The leader of the group was rather direct to the point.[/font]

 

[font="'courier new', courier, monospace;"]"The sun is dying. Before you attempt to bathe it with blood, your leaders need to speak with us."[/font]

 

[font="'courier new', courier, monospace;"]IC [To No-one]:[/font]

 

[font="'courier new', courier, monospace;"]"The sun is dying." It was the the middle-aged shaman who spoke at the gathering. "There is no doubt about it. An uktena has been unleashed on the world, and now it immediately seeks to crush it's enemy. We have truly unleashed a blight on this land."[/font]

 

[font="'courier new', courier, monospace;"]"What can we do about it?" It was a thought one elder voiced, but all thought at once.[/font]

 

[font="'courier new', courier, monospace;"]"We must journey to the sky. Alas, I'm not entirely sure of how to do that. However, I have sent my equal and our apprentice to speak with the local spirits. We must find a way, and soon, if we want to patch this problem before word spreads of our blunder."[/font]

IC:The elder Shaman seemed hardly surprised; he wore the pelt of a jaguar on his head and back, the teeth framing his forehead. His hair was streaked with grey, but arms still showed the contours of muscle. The young Shamsness had been in conversation with her, and was about to answer them when he shushed her with a "Ss, Tlateca. Fetch Cozincat." Tlateca exhaled through her nose and headed for the stone stepped pyramid in the center of the isle village.The Shaman who had not left turned back towards the trio. "I am Kolukash, Shaman of the Mayincatec, and I speak for Yakkulash. What do you know of this blight upon the sun?"

IC: "Noble one, you must be aware that there are other namers like us in the world. And they too seek to use spirits. Spirits that may be set against us, or even you," she paused to let that sink in, "What we wish to do is create a means of denying other tribes such underhanded tactics. If they cannot use spirits against us then many spirits will be spared harm," She added, since the spirit seemed to appreciate honesty, "And, of course, so will we. It is a good thing for all. Both the tree and the tiny animals that shelter in its branches benefit from this."

 

 

IC: "And what is the something that needs doing," the shaman Eyes of the River asked, apparently unperturbed by the band of Nunnehni, "Will this matter of the sun require strength of mind, strength of arm or strength of spirits?"

I am Ultron Six, a cybernetic intelligence created by Doctor Henry Pym. My imperative is to bring peace and order to this world. I am about to fulfil that imperative; for the extinction of humanity…begins now.

the_ultron_imperative.jpg

Soon the earth will no longer be habitable for any biological organism: Man, woman, child, plant, animal, fungus or bacterium. All life will cease to exist. This is not a threat, there is nothing you can do to stop it. The process has already begun. I receive no pleasure in this, it is simply the only solution. There must be peace and order, the end of life on earth will ensure that. Goodbye.

[font="'courier new', courier, monospace;"]"The blight is not one of nature, but rather of malice." The nunnehi pack leader shook his head with disgust. "Our chronicles tell of a time this happened once before; when one of your kind grew angry at the sun, and attempted to slay it in combat. It would appear round two has begun."[/font]

 

[font="'courier new', courier, monospace;"]IC [To Power][Past]:[/font]

 

[font="'courier new', courier, monospace;"]Interesting. Impractical. Interesting. The ground beneath the shaman shook with a great roar and in an instant, it had engulfed her without a trace. Her entire vision was dark for several seconds, until she was deposited in a somewhat respectful fashion far beneath the ground, in what appeared to be a cavern of growing crystals, with a basin of sparkling water. A truly marvelous sight, especially for one so use to the dull intricacies of the upper world.[/font]

 

[font="'courier new', courier, monospace;"]Power. No. The voice of the spirit rippled across the water, the earth breathing with each word. It was something of intuition, but the sense of not only great power but a great intelligence was felt. For all of its simplistic language, a magnificent mind rested behind those words. Harmony. Yes. Understand harmony. Understand union. Understand respect. Not power.[/font]

 

[font="'courier new', courier, monospace;"]IC [To Power][Present]:[/font]

 

[font="'courier new', courier, monospace;"]"A fair point, I suppose. Most tribesmen simply summon their shamans when we ask them that." The nunnehi seemed to of gained a point of respect for the shaman. "I suggest summoning your warriors and one of your younger shamans. This will be an endeavor that will require brute strength, and the creativity only the inexperienced are willing to accept."[/font]

[font="'courier new', courier, monospace;"]"It's... slightly more complicated than that." The nunnehi blinked, thinking of a good analogy for a moment. "Stoking the flames with blood is useless because the flames are being smothered by the assassin. Kill the assassin, and the flames once again rise. But, we cannot spend much more time discussing this. Time is of the essence if you do not wish for all warmth to vanish from this world. Please, gather your finest warriors, as well as a shaman; we have transportation prepared."[/font]

IC (Dark River)

 

Dark River halted as they came upon the monument to the dead. He could spell oils, salt and other scents. This was disturbing for many reasons, not the least of which was the fact this area did not normally smell of them. His entire body tensed and an involuntary growl escaped his throat. He knew they had neighbors upon these islands, but they had largely kept to themselves. If they were profaning the graves of the dead however....well, that would change quite quickly. Needing no orders, his comrades crept beside him, slowly approaching the graveyard through the underbrush. Then, quite suddenly, they emerged on all sides of the intruders, crouched low and ready to strike. They would probably determine these were no normal wolves-simply by the fact one of them was pulling a rickshaw behind him.

[font="'courier new', courier, monospace;"]With such neighbors, the members of the Final Conclave hardly needed to see signs of intelligence to know that these were no ordinary wolves. Within seconds the men had pulled out axes made of flint, while the keeper of the dead had her arm outstretched, her cloak shifting to reveal intricate tattoos running across her hands and arms. The moment was appropriately tense, but the woman spoke anyways, a rough form of the dialect the Darkest Shadow tribe spoke. Root languages were always useful in communing with your neighbors.[/font]

 

[font="'courier new', courier, monospace;"]"We mean you no harm," she said quietly. "Do not attack. Neither of the fallen would approve."[/font]

IC:Within an hour, the Mayincatec had gathered six men, along with one woman; two were from the hunting party that had accompanied Tlateca. Tlateca herself was there as well. Three of the men carried large wooden clubs with Flint spikes adorning them, and wore Jaguar skins on their heads down their backs. Three carried spears, and had brightly dyed feathers attached to bands in their hair. Each carried a bow.The Elder shaman spoke "Tlateca will accompany you. She has the power of youth, and she has...dealt with your kind once already."

Dark River paused for a moment, then his body began to shift and changing, becoming more human and less wolf. Finally, Dark River stood before the intruders in the form of a man. His body baring the jagged black markings so favored by his people, his black hair tried in ponytail behind his head and his red eyes glowering at those who had intruded on this monument of the dead. "Why have you come? Neither of the fallen?"

IC [To Xom]:

 

The posse proceeded to the water line, where a surprisingly large boat was resting. Canoe like in appearance, it was long and thick, perhaps even suited for oceanic travel. After the group was loaded into it, the boat set off, the nunnehi rowing slow at first but rapidly speeding up. Soon, they were zipping across the vast lake, and those from the hunting party before would realize that they were going in the same direction. The shaman Tlateca would likely have a good idea of why they were heading in this direction.

IC: The shamans at Reach summoned the tribe together using the large horns they'd affixed close to the ziggurat's base. They were normally used if the whole clan needed to be gathered for one of the Harvests, but this seemed an important task as well.

Quickly their warriors were selected, and a couple of the younger shamans along with them. 

 

"Will they be requiring provisions?" Eyes asked

 

 

IC: "So..." Mouth contemplated, thinking hard on what the spirit was saying, "They stay away not  because you are a king, but because you are...an older brother. Of sorts."

IC: This got a raising of eyebrows from Eyes of the River. "I would hope that we would be seeing some of these warriors again. We respect you as beings with one foot in the spirit world, and as guests, but if you are asking that we send our finest warriors into a blood bath only the dead will return from, we my have to refuse you. What is this for?"

 

 

IC: "The two interact and are in balance yes, but is in not true that the water can be channeled and shape the earth in turn if in the hands of us mortals?," Mouth to Shout pointed out, "We have managed it a little here. Or up there, I should say. Could we not also manage such a thing with the spirits of water and earth?"

This is not a threat, there is nothing you can do to stop it. The process has already begun. I receive no pleasure in this, it is simply the only solution. There must be peace and order, the end of life on earth will ensure that. Goodbye.

[font="'lucida sans unicode', 'lucida grande', sans-serif;"][color=rgb(178,34,34);]Four members of The Blood Kin'dred, crouched in the underbrush, hunting on their way to meet with their distant cousins of the Wounded Night, further on in the forest. They had been tracking this deer for about an hour, but now they had found it and it was time for the hunt. "Koual aat." The man leading the party signaled for two of the men to cover it's left and right, while he would take it from behind. The men moved into position only for the deer to bolt around a tree forcing them to reorganize and run after it. They ran through the forest, the deer only getting further away. " Hraat ta'll, aaht!" The most agile member shouted, then threw two rabbits to the rest of the group and shot after the deer. Every thorn that pricked his skin as he passed, every branch that whipped againest his body as he ran, all they did was make him angrier, drove him faster. He lept over a log, saw the deer was tired, and in one final burst of speed caught up. Just as he caught up something slammed into the deer's and his side knocking them both to the ground. It took him a mintue to get what ever it was off him but when he did, he stood up and growled, flexed his claws and then lept at it.[/color][/font]

IC: "So there is no way to remove a spirit from a place unless we can talk to it?" Mouth sighed, "I suppose that is either for us than for most, but it would have been nice to create a more level playing field where it was simply mortal strengths against mortal strengths."

Sugawara Tribal Lands

 

IC: Sa'aki was nervous. As the newest shaman of the Sugawara he had a lot to catch up on. One such thing was meeting the tribes patron spirit for the first time.

 

He knelt down in front of a row of candles within the long shaman's hut, taking long calm breaths to calm himself. The smoke from the incense wafted around the rafters and filled the place with a soothing scent. Quietly he began to chant, slowly growing louder as he continued. After several minutes his voice was just under a shout, able to be heard from outside the hut and in the village proper.

Reaching the end of his chant, Sa'aki called out, "Koi Shinrei!" and stopped, breathing slightly heavily, and waiting for the spirit to respond.

IC:Tlateca took it upon herself to speak to the lead of the Nunnehi, seeming rather nervous and speaking quietly. "You said that a human is snuffing out the sun. Are you sure? My men will confront any natural thing without fear, but the otherworldly is another matter, and their clubs and spears will do little against spirits...this human is a shaman, I would assume?"

"Seh te ta te wa, geh. Aeia Kou'a'ja?" Asks the Shaman apprentice, the hood of his signature white cloth pulled high over his suntanned face. "Ah te gah wa na, keh te ye wa." states Kou'ah'ja, his four pony tails swinging with his head as he looks about alertly.  "Aeyah, ke tah."
