  1. IC: Cephala (Tidalpool Inn) "I'm sorry, what...?" Cephala nearly knocked her mug to the floor as she whipped out her notebook and slammed it on the table. "The worms? You saw the things inside the armor do something?" OOC: @Mel @Geardirector
  2. IC: Cephala (Tidalpool Inn) "Red flags are for the Wastes, and I'm not that drunk yet." Cephala glared. "Nor do I intend to get that drunk, for that matter. Not when Rahkshi are involved." OOC: @Mel @Geardirector
  3. IC: Cephala (Tidalpool Inn) "You are drowning me in red flags, you two." OOC: @Geardirector @Mel
  4. IC: Joskander (Obsidian Outpost) Joskander sighed. "Pal, please don't kick the body. You already broke his face open. He's had enough." He knelt down and scooped up Gak's corpse. Skakdi bodies were heavy enough even without being iced over, but Joskander was used to carrying weights these days. "Where to?" OOC: @Wotz @Geardirector
  5. IC: Joskander (Obsidian Outpost) Joskander smiled weakly. "Yeah," he said, his voice cracking slightly. "I... I spent my first couple days at Ihu bringing over bodies for ID and burial. I feel like I oughta see this one off too." His eyes grew distant, and for a moment he was kio away, crawling through a bloody snowdrift under cover of blizzard and night, surrounded by broken masks and black heartlights. Then he shook his head. "Right. Keep yourself safe out there, all right? Don't start any fights over theology with the wrong people and get yourself locked up again. I shouldn't be too long. If things go south, I got a Kakama, y'know? I'm good at running." He sighed. "If I don't catch up for you, on the other hand... we meet up the same place we first met, right outside the gates of Ko." With slightly trembling hands he took the shovel from Dahkapa. "So, uh..." he said. "Until then, I suppose?" OOC: @Daniel the Finlander @Geardirector @Wotz
  6. IC: Cephala (Tidalpool Inn) "Raaaaashhhhh...?" Cephala made a face, swirling the word in her mouth like a sip of bad ale. Then she brightened. "Ah!" she exclaimed. "You mean Rahkshi, yes? Tall lizards, staves, armor for days, spines that wouldn't look out of place on a Skakdi? Yeah, we got some of those here. Mostly confined to Mangaia and the Dark Paths these days, as far as I'm aware; I've even heard of hunting parties that go looking for Rahkshi bits to sell off, because of course we've got people stupid enough to see Makuta's murder monsters as a business opportunity. What makes you..." Suddenly the rest of Pradhai's sentence caught up with her. The Turaga straightened in her chair, the mug in her hand sinking to the table. The castle in the back of her mind, forever burning in silence, was suddenly a little brighter. "Oh. Hold on. When you say "monsters that ravaged Kentoku"...?" OOC: @Wotz @Geardirector
  7. IC: Cephala (Tidalpool Inn) "Old?" Cephala said. "Ha! Most of us, maybe, but I still feel young enough to bench-press a Manas." She gazed into her mug, sloshing the liquid around, then added, "Or that could be the alcohol talking. Y'know, there's a surprising amount of value in having a Kaukau when you like to get drunk as sin in a village comprised entirely of lily pads." She drained the mug in one swift gulp, then tapped the seats next to her. "Right, I'm pretty sure I'm making an awful first impression, but regrets are for sober people who haven't just downed two full mugs of Brakas Bootshine. Come on, pull up a chair. You two look like you've got stories to tell, and I'm sure we could all do with giving me a reason not to run my mouth." OOC: Wasn't planning it when I started writing this post, but it looks like I'm all in on Cephala being drunk as sin. Yeet. @Geardirector @Mel
  8. IC: Cephala (Tidalpool Inn) "I," the Turaga said with a smile, "am but a humble fisherwoman and retired adventurer by the name of Cephala. Please, pardon my forwardness, as I have nothing better to do with my time than pester any other Turaga I run across into being my drinking buddies." She cackled to herself, then took a large swig of something red and frothy from an earthen mug. "How about you? I think I've seen your friend around here a couple times before, but you seem like a new face- I daresay I'd remember you if you weren't. Here in Ga, we don't often see old ladies with crystal armor and a snake for a pet, y'know?" OOC: @Mel @Geardirector
  9. IC: Joskander (Obsidian Outpost) Joskander did what he could not to cringe. He'd always thought himself particularly dense for a Toa, but this Skakdi seemed almost as if he was trying to be suspicious. That the De-Toa hadn't cracked just from being in the same Wahi as his companion spoke volumes of his own self-control. That said... the story checked out. Joskander had spent enough time burying bodies at Ihu to know what death from exposure looked like. This Skakdi- Gak, he corrected himself- showed all the signs of having spent a few hours in the Wastes with far too little protection from the elements. There were portions of Gak's corpse where the ice and frost was evenly melted, but his body itself seemed undamaged underneath; in all likelyhood, the Su-Skakdi had attempted to thaw his companion out with an offensive vision power. All of the gore seemed to come from the head wound, and Joskander had seen the accident that had caused it with his own two eyes. Heck, had Gak not been a half-frozen corpse, his head probably wouldn't have taken so much damage in the first place. This was not a murder. It was the Wastes that had claimed Gak's life. And even if it was a murder, well, Dahkapa had told him to play nice. "You can calm down, buddy," Joskander told the Skakdi. "I believe you. I know what it looks like when the cold gets ya, and, uh..." He gestured at Gak's head and grimaced. "Yeah. I kinda saw you fall down the stairs. Pretty sure there's a set that's a better fit for Skakdi, by the by. The people that used to run this place had laaaaaarge feet." He glanced at Dahkapa, still quiet and awkwardly holding a shovel, then at the De-Toa, doing more or less the same. Neither seemed to want to stick around. Could he trust either of the two with the other? It was hardly a good idea to take risks or split up when corpses were involved... ...but there was a very, very insistent voice in his heart telling him to let them go. And besides, he had a Kakama. He could catch up later. "You two can head to Ko without me if you want. I'd like to stick around to bury Gak with, uh..." He squinted. "What was your name, again?" OOC: @Wotz @Daniel the Finlander @Geardirector
  10. IC: Joskander (Obsidian Outpost) Hm. Reasonable story. A cover-up? Or is that Skakdi just a paranoid nutcase? I could see it going either way, honestly... Joskander's eyes flicked to the pool of blood at the bottom of the stairs, then to the closet where the splatters ended. He'd seen the body before the Su-Skakdi had tripped and smashed it open, and he'd looked pretty dead already. Possibly just unconscious or drugged- but that arm in the doorway looked pretty darn iced over. A good look for Mr. Calm and Collected here, if not necessarily his companion. He shrugged. "We were actually just headed over to Ko to find out ourselves," the Le-Toa said. "You lot wanna come with and report that body? Useful to keep track of these things, y'know. And we can probably get the poor guy a better burial over there." OOC: @Geardirector @Wotz @Daniel the Finlander
  11. IC: Joskander (Obsidian Outpost) Joskander gave the Skakdi a sheepish grin and did what he could to not glance at the body that, as far as he could tell, did not consider death to be an impediment to opening doors. "Sorry, buddy, but I was talking to the other guy, not you." He gently pushed the shovel away. "Like, you kinda tried to scam me just now, y'know?" OOC: @Daniel the Finlander @Geardirector @Wotz
  12. IC (Tidalpool Inn) "Psst.” A pebble, perfectly round and polished enough to catch the morning light, sailed between Mako’s face and his menu. Leaning back in her seat in the corner, Turaga Cephala offered the two Datsue a languid wave. “Try the Mangai Duster,” she said. “Gloriously spicy. Keeps your mind flying for hours.” OOC: @Geardirector @Mel
  13. IC: Joskander (Obsidian Outpost) Joskander frowned. A De-Toa with a shovel and a Kavinika, obviously highly uncomfortable... Had he overheard his conversation with Dahkapa? Almost certainly, but the unease in his voice and body language didn't entirely sync up with that of someone merely afraid of being caught. In fact, Joskander knew the expression quite well; this was a Toa who was absolutely regretting every choice he'd made in the past few... hours? Let's say hours. Maybe he could work with that. "What matters? Anything we can lend a hand with?" Joskander flashed the other Toa his goofiest, most earnest grin. "Always happy to help a fellow Toa in need." OOC: @Daniel the Finlander @Geardirector @Wotz
  14. IC: Joskander (Cable Car/Obsidian Outpost) Despite himself, Joskander chuckled. "We're being scammed," he said, keeping his voice low. "I take this car all the time when I'm running errands, and I got a couple friends that knew the guys that used to run this place. Obsidian Outpost hasn't been occupied for a loooong time." The cable car groaned and whined as it pulled into the station and slowed to a halt. Joskander stood and gave the Su-Skakdi an airy wave; under his breath, he murmured to Dahkapa, "How do you wanna play this, brother? I can probably rush the body if I need to, but I don't wanna try anything wild when we don't know what's going on." OOC: @Daniel the Finlander@Wotz@Geardirector
  15. I've actually got a couple ideas for Seprilli characters on the back burner. Seprilli's probably the part of Zakaz that interests me the most, but I feel like I don't have enough of a feel for Zakaz yet to actually commit.
