  1. IC, Eita: Ga-Koro "Praytell, to what end it is that you seek that cactus?" "It was recommended to me by a healer in this village as a cure for my migraines. I've been having them as far as... as far as I can remember," Eita said. He conveniently left out the part about his memory not going back very far. "I'm planning on this being a one and done thing, so you can put your concerns to rest." He turned to the mute Matoran named Kanohi, who was showing him something he had written. "Ah..." The Dashi murmured as he read what Kanohi had written. But before he had a chance to say something, Ranok spoke up: “I am definitely aware of where one can pick up some miracle cactus. Usually I’d advise splitting up, but with the guards occupied with the new fleet I think we should be alright as long as we keep our heads down.” Eita scratched his chin. "Hmmm. I think I have an idea," he said, gesturing to the gathered beings to come closer in order to hear him. "The inhabitants of this island have been so kind to me and my people, I think I would like to help Kanohi out with his problem, and potentially kill two Janu with one stone. If that would be alright with the rest of you, of course." He looked back at Nara, Timak, and the others. "If this Lesterin has no miracle cactus in his possession..." his voice trailed off as he glanced at Ranok specifically. "We can pay a visit to wherever Ranok has in mind." He winced a little as he began to feel another migraine start to well up. "I don't think it's a coincidence that we've all met each other," he stated. "If fate has brought us together, then maybe we could find out the reason, together." OOC: @ARROW404 @Snelly @Rahisaurus @Harvali@Lady Takanuva @Tarn @BULiK @Umbraline Yumiwa @Mel @BBBBalta
  2. IC, Eita: Ga-Koro "I am Eita of Clan Kinzoku; it's a pleasure to meet you all," Eita said, acknowledging each of the newly arrived beings (how many people were here now, thirty?). "My companions are Nara, Nale, Timak, Kimala, and Lekua, although it seems that a few of you know each other already." Acknowledging the ones called Kanohi and Ranok, he said, "Well, I don't quite know what a Lesterin is, but perhaps you could help us with a problem of our own- myself, Lekua, and the others are in search of a plant called the Miracle Cactus. We have a general idea of where to find one- Po-Wahi- but perhaps one of you all know of a more specific location?" OOC: @ARROW404 @Snelly @Rahisaurus @Harvali@Lady Takanuva @Tarn @BULiK @Umbraline Yumiwa @Mel @BBBBalta
  3. IC, Atamai: Temple of Peace The Ta-Matoran stared at the cairn, lost in thought. He had never personally visited the Temple of Peace before now, but even he knew that the structure in front of him was relatively new. Fairly large, so not a Matoran... he mused. His fiery eyes darted around. In certain places, he could see broken bits of rock. Signs of a struggle. Ironic that the Temple of Peace appears to have been the site of a skirmish. But the question is... He glanced back at the cairn. Who lost? OOC: @BULiK @Tarn
  4. IC, Atamai: Ko-Wahi "If the chronicler wishes to come with us again, I won’t stop him.” Atamai glanced at Savrehn. "Let's stay focused on getting back to Ko-Koro," he said. "Can't really start planning another trip if we haven't finished this one yet." OOC: @Tarn @BULiK
  5. IC, Eita: Ga-Koro Eita followed Timak out of the restaurant, followed by the rest of his new friends. As he approached the De-Toa, he realized that two separate groups of people were converging on them. "Hey, what's going on, Timak?" he asked. "Who are all these people?" OOC: @ARROW404 @Snelly @Rahisaurus @Harvali@Lady Takanuva @Tarn @BULiK @Umbraline Yumiwa @Mel @BBBBalta Okay, I think I pinged everyone. So to recap, Eita has led Nale, Lekua, Nara, and possibly Kimala outside to meet up with Timak. Meanwhile, two other groups of people are approaching Eita, Timak and co.: one group comprised of Kanohi, Lapu, and Hakari, and the other of Ranok, Nichou, and Sigrus.
  6. IC, Atamai: Ko-Wahi Atamai had been staring out into the distance, contemplating on the terrifying encounter- or encounters, plural, if he counted the dragon. "No," Atamai said, turning back around to the other two Matoran. "No, you haven't lost your lives. Not yet." He knelt down next to Kreigero. "Those two living in that... bunker of sorts. It's a very suspicious circumstance at best, nefarious at worst. I was also afraid that we were going to die. Those people seem dangerous, but why would they let us live instead of killing us right there? I think I know. It's because they're going to abandon their base now that it's been found. "Think about it- if they were to kill us, there's a chance that a search party could come out searching for us, which increases the chance of their bunker being found a second time. By letting us live, they're betting on us not telling anyone of what we saw. But on the off chance we do tell someone- like those new Toa you have in the village, the Kalta- and they go and find that bunker, it'll be empty. It's a calculated move, and one that involves us being alive. "It doesn't mean that those people will be out hunting for us. If they're smart, they'll move to a different Wahi. The only threats that will be out here are the ones you already know of- and dragons now, I guess. Now that we should probably tell someone about." OOC: @Tarn @BULiK
  7. IC, Eita: The Great Takea Eita nodded to the other Toa that approached. "Nice to meet you as well, Kimala. And yes, that's what we are planning. We have a basic idea of where to find one, but I think having as many hands as possible would make the search easier." OOC: @Lady Takanuva @BBBBalta @Rahisaurus @ARROW404 @Tarn
  8. IC, Eita: The Great Takea The Dashi's eyes widened at Timak's display of elemental power. "Okay, that's pretty cool!" he said. "Alright, let me introduce you to the others. I'm Eita of clan Kinzoku, by the way." OOC: @Rahisaurus
  9. IC, Eita: The Great Takea “Yeah, you know what, today it’s fine. But Ta-Koro’s where you wanna be if smithing is your thing. Their old elder decided it was a good idea to set up shop inside a volcano. "Oh, th-thank you!" Eita stuttered as the woman began walking away, clearly distracted with another proprietor. Ta-Koro, huh? I'll have to look into it after I take care of this migraine problem... the Dashi mused to himself. Before he returned to his new companions, he approached the greyish Toa that had announced themselves earlier. "'Scuse me," he said, "You said you want to help the Matoran? Well, my group and I..." he gestured to the others, "are going to search for something called a Miracle Cactus. I think it would be good if we had someone like you to join us, in case we run into trouble that requires the touch of someone with elemental powers. Would you be interested?" OOC: @Rahisaurus time for Timak to join us!
  10. IC, Atamai: Echelon's Lair Atamai had reached out to help Kreigero as well, but hesitated and decided against it. He had already done enough damage for one day. He picked up remnants of the rope that had bound the three Matoran together. He paused before turning his back to the two "hermits"- he studied their faces, their very beings, in case they ever met again. After all, remembered everything. Atamai did pause for a moment to ponder further what the two "hermits" were really doing in such a hidden area, but he continued to move. Such questions would come later.
  11. IC, Atamai: Echelon's Lair Atamai made no reaction, but his blood ran cold. Or rather, colder, considering the weather. His heart continued to sink even further than it already had. Great, we're for sure dead now, he thought to himself. He continued to say nothing, but his eyes darted from his two companions to the two being occupying the hole in the wall. ___ IC, Skrol: Obsidian Outpost Skrol tipped his hat to Dolbren and Minnorak in polite greeting, then tapped his cane around a bit to find a chair to sit on. "Hopefully you have a plan to sell this cart," the Lesterin said in his slightly gravely voice. "If this tech works as ya say, I'm sure Po-Koro will send people out to find it as soon as they hear it's stolen. Sell it quick, I say." OOC: @BULiK etc.
  12. IC, Skrol: Obisidan Outpost Tap Tap Tap These faint sounds were heard outside of the door. They were soon followed by a slightly louder smack on the door itself. The handle turned, and the door slowly opened. A Lesterin with a walking stick shuffled in. A slightly raspy voice called out from him. "Quoribay? Ya here?" the being asked aloud. After a brief second (and some soft tongue clicks) the blind Lesterin was able to zero in on the Matoran. "Ah, there ye are." He began walking toward him, swinging his stick in front of him in a back-and-forth motion. "So I got yer message- what exactly did ya have in mind?" OOC: @BULiK
  13. IC, Eita: The Great Takea Eita raised his eyebrows. He had caught glimpse of the Kanohi Dragon that had attacked the docks back home, but this was a very different kind of creature. He took one last sip of his drink, and then hopped out of his seat. Quite a company had grown at their table, and he didn't want Nara to be stuck with the bill, so he looked around the establishment and spotted the being whom he assumed was the owner. A woman, by her description of the same kind as the Chaotic Six that the Dashi had heard about from other members of his clan. What were they called? Skakdi? He walked up to the bar and hopped up on the seat. "Excuse me," he called, trying to get the woman's attention. "You're the owner, right? My friends and I..." he gestured to his new companions, "...are just about finished up, and we had a lot of food." He pulled out the last of his crystal Dasakan money. "Now, I don't know if you accept our people's money here, but hopefully this should cover part of our tab." He slid the crystalline currency across the bar. "If this isn't enough, I do have something else I can offer you. I'm a blacksmith, see, and as soon as I get myself established here, I can make you a couple of things. Cutlery, jewelry, weapons, whatever you want. "Is this... acceptable?" he asked. OOC: @Tarn @Lady Takanuvaetc. @Vezok's FriendEita is trying to pay Rhow for our group's meal lol
  14. IC, Eita: The Great Takea The Dashi looked over at the being who loudly proclaimed their entrance at the establishments' doorway. He turned back to his companions. "Do people always declare things about themselves here? Anyway, they seem nice- maybe we could benefit from having a protector accompany us?" OOC: @Rahisaurus@BULiK @Lady Takanuva @Tarn and anyone else I may have missed lol
  15. IC, Atamai: Echelon's Lair This time, Atamai did as he was told. He untied himself from the rope keeping him connected to the other two Matoran. "If we all somehow make it out of this alive, I'll find a way to make this all up to you... somehow." OOC: @BULiK @Tarn
  16. IC, Atamai: Echelon's Hideout Atamai shivered. He wasn't sure if it was from the cold, from the situation they were all in, or both. "Duly noted," he replied.
  17. Assuming that he's talking about the group I'm leading, we haven't done much of anything yet since we've been waiting for his character and a couple others to join up with the rest of us in Ga. But once we're assembled, the first thing we're gonna do is go look for a Miracle Cactus in Po-Wahi to cure my character Eita's migraines. And then after that I've got a little adventure that we'll be going on.
  18. Okay, it looks like the forums are back. Great! However, I do have one issue. I noticed that on at least three of our boards (Games and More, Completely Off-Topic, and Off-Topic Culture; there may be more that I haven't noticed), each topic has a sidebar with information about top posters in the topic (Exhibit A). While this is a nice thought, unfortunately it leads to the posts in those topics becoming squished and moved over to the left side of the screen, while leaving a ton of blank space on the right side of the screen starting partway through the page (Exhibit B). I am wondering why this feature was included in these three boards specifically and none of the others. It's really jarring when compared to the rest of the site. Can this feature be removed? I frequent the RPG board and I'm used to having my text box be in the center of the screen, and I'm sure my fellow members who also use that board a lot will agree with me.
  19. IC, Atamai: Echelon’s Lair Atamai glanced from Syrik to Aerus. This is bad… could we make a run for it while they’re busy? he thought to himself.
  20. IC, Atamai: Echelon’s Lair Atamai snorted a bit. “Yeah, I don’t think any mountaineer has ever had to prepare for a dragon before,” he said. “Guess everyone will have to be even more careful when they go out into the Drifts now.” OOC: @Goose et al
  21. If I'm being honest, I'd rather not see any forum upgrades. Forum upgrades on this site have a long history of causing massive downtimes, and I would rather not see bzp go down for like 3 months.
  22. IC, Atamai: Echelon's Lair Atamai examined the structure's occupants. He had been expecting a Toa, but he hadn't been expecting the Matoran who spoke to them. Atamai's eyepiece zoomed in and out as he looked over the pair. The Matoran leaned on a cane, but didn't look old. Sick, maybe? The Ta-Matoran glanced to the Toa next. The Toa locked eyes with him for a moment before turning his gaze to another member of the company. Atamai felt a chill go down his spine. The Toa's eyes were fiery, and very, very unfriendly, to say the least. Atamai gulped. I have a bad feeling about this... he thought to himself. He suddenly wished that he had never knocked on the metal door. "Home. We fell and d-d-don't know where we are. We've got to get b-b-back home before the boss gets worried." Atamai did his best not to react with surprise. Why would you say that?! If these two figure out we're lying, we'll probably be killed! he thought. The Matoran pulled his scarf tighter around himself. "R-r-right," he said, his teeth clattering from both the cold and from nervousness. "I'm a scholar, and I was hired by Akiri Tarkahn to further investigate something written on the Wall of Prophecy. These two..." he gestured to his companions, "were hired to lead me to and from the Massif. We were on our way back to the Koro when we were attacked by a muaka, and then a literal dragon of all things showed up, and when we tried to flee we ended up falling into this crevasse." He sighed. "We're really sorry that we disturbed you, but when we saw the big metal door, we were hoping to find shelter from the storm, and a place for our injured friend to rest." OOC: @Goose @Ghosthands @BULiK @Tarn
  23. IC, Atamai: Outside Echelon's Lair Atamai looked up at the pair. "I think it's better for us to find this Toa. At least we'd have a heads up." He stood up and turned back to the doorway. He reached out and rapped on the metal loudly. "Hello? Is anyone home?" The Ta-Matoran had no idea if the occupant could hear anyone knocking through the thick metal. OOC: @BULiK @Tarn @Ghosthands
