  1. IC, Eita: Ga-Koro hotel Eita opted to wait until the tea was finished, seeing as Nichou had quickly passed out after eating his slice of the fruit. With a smile and nod, he took the cup offered by Ranok and took a sip. The tea was, surprisingly contrary to what Ranok had said about the fruit’s bitterness, a bit sweet. Eita let the tea’s warmth fill his belly for a moment before glancing at the piece of the cactus fruit next to him on a plate. After a moment’s hesitation, he popped the slice into his mouth. He frowned slightly, confirming Ranok’s statement. He washed the taste down with some more of the tea. “Yeah, I’m glad I waited for the tea,” he said with a little chuckle. He sat back in his chair, sipping his tea as he watched the others take in the spoils of their little encounter. Timak started crawling on the floor, asking where their mask was; Eita unintentionally let out a little giggle, even though the sight was more sad than funny. Not long after downing the last of his tea, the Dashi felt a migraine begin. Eita groaned a little, then clutched his head between his hands as the pressure grew. He began to feel pain in his skull like he had never felt before. “Ugh, I’m feeling… I’m gonna lie down,” he said. He got out of his chair, initially intending to find a bed or couch, but instead slowly got on the floor, resting his head against the cool wood boards. The world started to spin around him, and Eita’s mind faded into blackness. *** The Dashi gasped as he awoke with a start. He was laying on hard ground. Above him, blackened trees rose up into the dark sky. He sat up with a groan, rubbing his head a bit as he did. He looked around. He was in the middle of a dense forest of burnt trees. There were no houses or structures of any kind in sight. The air had a stench of ash or charcoal. Eita stood on shaky legs. “Hello?” he called out into the trees. There was no response. Eita wasn’t sure what was going on, but he knew he had to find a way back to civilization. Looking around, there was no clear path. The Dashi grunted and started trudging forward. *** After what felt like an eternity (but was probably only fifteen minutes), Eita heard some voices in the distance. “Hello? Who’s out there?” he called. He continued to hear the voices, but it didn’t seem like they were responding to him. The Dashi jogged in the direction of the voices. He came to a small clearing, sighting a group of seven Matoran who were discussing something. “Hello! Would anyone mind telling me where I am?” Eita asked aloud to them as he approached. The gathered Matoran continued with their discussion, seemingly ignoring him. “Hey! Hello?!” Eita said again, louder this time. He walked up to one Matoran, a white-armored one, and waved a hand in front of his face. He reached out to grab the Matoran by the shoulder, and was shocked to find that his hand passed right through him. Eita took a step back. “W-What in the world is going on?” He shouted aloud. As before, none of the Matoran stopped to pay him any mind. A noise suddenly caught the attention of the gathered beings. The Dashi looked around, and soon found himself and the Matoran surrounded by the same lizardlike monsters that had ravaged the Kentoku Archipelago. Rahkshi, the Dashi thought grimly. He drew his crystal sword and prepared for battle. Most of the Matoran gathered did the same. One of them, one with an odd mix of red, yellow, and blue armor, spoke up. "Begone, slime of Makuta, or feel us bite." The scene was tense for a moment, until a brown Rahkshi began the attack. It leapt at the Matoran who had spoken. Eita leapt at the creature and swung his blade low, aiming for an ankle. The blade simply passed through the creature’s limb, as the Dashi’s hand did with the Matoran earlier. Eita sighed and clenched his teeth. He turned his head just in time to see one of the Matoran, a green-and-gold one, get skewered by one of the Rahkshi. “NO!” Eita exclaimed. His heart sank, his breath quickened as he raced over to the fallen one. He found that he still couldn’t interact with him. His eyes darted around, and he saw another Matoran, this one an odd mix of red, yellow, and blue, dart away. The Rahkshi turned and pursued the fleeing Matoran, with one Rahkshi, the one that had stabbed the now-fallen Matoran, tripping into lava and melting. The fallen Matoran’s companions rushed over to see what they could do, but the situation was sadly hopeless. Eita helplessly watched as the Matoran coughed up some blood, while the rest was pooling from the wound he had sustained. The dying Matoran opened his mouth and spoke. “Darn. I was worried something like this would happen." His body shuddered as it began to shut down. The Matoran coughed again, and his voice left his mouth once more, but a little weaker, quieter. "May Mata-Nui guide you on your journey, brothers..." he whispered faintly. His eyes closed, his breathing stopped, and his heartlight dimmed. Eita bowed his head and began to sob, confused as to why he was seeing such a sight. Then everything froze. The ragged breaths of the other Matoran stopped, the faint hissing of the nearby lava quieted, and the cinders in the air stood still where they hung. Eita paused in the middle of a sob, looking around. He stood, examining the ashes that had frozen in their descent to the ground with confusion and curiosity. “Why…?” he muttered to himself. From behind him came a rustling, then a grunt. The Dashi turned, startled to find the fallen Matoran getting back up. “Now that’s a good question, one that I don’t really have an answer to,” the Matoran said, blood dripping from his mouth and his still-open wound. Eita took a readied stance with his sword. “What the **** is going on? I just saw you die,” he said to the walking corpse. “How are you up and talking?” The Matoran let out a little smile. “Well, from what I gather, all of what you see here- this forest, these Matoran, and myself- are all part of a hallucination brought on by the Miracle Cactus.” Eita lowered his blade. “Okay, that I can believe,” he said. “But what exactly am I being shown? Who are you?” The green Matoran let out a sharp breath as he looked around with dim eyes. The other Matoran present were still frozen in their kneeling positions as if nothing was happening. “What you just saw was the moment of my death,” the Matoran said. “As for my name, it’s Aurax. And it’s really your name too- because I am you.” The Dashi’s crystal blade fell to the ground. He tried to let out words but found he couldn’t. Aurax approached him and led him to a rock, where they both took a seat. “This is all very hard to process, but it seems that after I, you, we, died, somehow, we were reincarnated on Iki, in a new body.” Eita furled his brow. “But why didn’t I have my memories? And how exactly did… we get reincarnated?” he asked Aurax. The Cy-Matoran shrugged. “Your guess is as good as mine for both of those questions. Personally, I think we were blocking our own memories off.” Eita looked at him quizzically. “I don’t know why, but I think that maybe it was the trauma of dying that scared us from thinking about the truth. But I guess part of us still wanted to know, which…” “Which explains the migraines,” Eita said, finishing Aurax’s sentence. “I see. I shouldn’t have any more of those, right?” Aurax smiled and nodded in confirmation. Eita sighed a breath of relief. Aurax stared off into the distance. “As for your second question, I don’t know how it is exactly we came back. Maybe the Great Spirits took pity on us?” Now it was Eita’s turn to shrug. “Maybe. But why would we be brought back in the first place?” The Cy-Matoran said nothing, but gestured to the still-frozen Matoran. “Now, do you remember their names?” He asked the Dashi. Eita looked at each Matoran in turn. “…Lepidran. Sulov. Oreius. Reordin.” He glanced at the last one, a Matoran of Plasma. “Stannis. We were his Company, and before that…” Eita paused as the world began to whirl around him, save for Aurax and the rock the two of them were sitting on. Suddenly, they found themselves in front of a large structure shaped like a Toa’s maskless face. A group of Matoran was gathered in front of it. “…there were his Companions.” He scanned the gathered beings. Two of them he instantly recognized as ones that were currently with him, and the names of the others came back to him quickly. “Lekua, Nichou, Dece, Atiel,” he stated. “I wish I had left them in better circumstances,” he said, recalling that those who were not chosen to accompany Stannis to find the Essence Stones of the First Toa were not happy at the group’s disbanding. Aurax put a hand on Eita’s shoulder. “What’s done is done,” he said, “but now you- I mean, I, have a chance to move forward, and figure out what my new Destiny is. And perhaps, make things right with some of your old friends.” Eita nodded. “Maybe I’ll take a page out of Stannis’s book and do some Wandering,” he stated. “Maybe they'll join me. Just like old times.” The Dashi turned and noticed that the Cy-Matoran had disappeared. Only Aurax was left. *** First the first time in a long time, Aurax opened his eyes, letting the rays of the early morning sun fill his vision. It was as if a curtain had been lifted, or a door had been opened. He was keenly aware of what had happened; his mind felt at rest, with not a hint of pain. Rather, a feeling of wholeness had come upon him. Letting out a small groan, the Dashi got to his knees and surveyed the scene. His friends, new and old, were scattered around him, sleeping. He quickly walked over to Nichou first and started shaking him. “Nichou! Wake up! I’m back! Aurax is back!” he said in a slight whisper. He moved over to Lekua next and started shaking him, trying to rouse him. How eager he was to share the news! OOC: @ARROW404 @Snelly @Rahisaurus @Harvali@Lady Takanuva @Tarn @BULiK @Umbraline Yumiwa @Mel @BBBBalta After over a year of this Arc being up and running, Aurax has officially, finally, fully returned, memories and all. If you want your character to try some cactus, don't let my post stop you; BZPTime is wibbly-wobbly, after all.
  2. IC, Eita: Ga-Koro "I...have to leave soon, but I guess it won't hurt to try some cactus?" "Wait, we're trying the cactus?! Can I try some too?" Eita smiled and nodded. "Yes, you're more than welcome to have some of it," he said. "Same goes for all of you. You all helped, so you all can have some if you want." "What exactly is so miraculous about it?" Kimala asked. The Dashi shrugged. "Guess we'll have to find out," he said. *** The group ended up going to a nearby hotel to have their fruity meal. Eita had paid for the room with some of his crystal currency, leading to the bewildered receptionist giving the group a big enough room for them all to sit in. The group spread around the main room, choosing spots where they felt comfortable. On a nearby dresser Eita put a little stack of the small plates he had requested from the receptionist. He pulled out his metal knife and offered it to Ranok. "Care to do the honors?" OOC: @ARROW404 @Snelly @Rahisaurus @Harvali@Lady Takanuva @Tarn @BULiK @Umbraline Yumiwa @Mel @BBBBalta If anyone wants their character to try some of the cactus fruit, you're free to do so once it's all chopped up or whatever. What effects it has on your character are up to you!
  3. IC, Eita: Ga-Koro "Well. That sure took much less time than I expected! When you said 'cactus', I was sure we were off to Po-Wahi!" "Yes, I suppose we did get lucky that the Lesterin that Kanohi was tracking had one in his possession," Eita said with a slight smile. “I don’t suppose any of us actually have a house here?” Eita shook his head. "'Fraid I'm obviously no help on that end," he said, referring to the fact that he and his people had only barely arrived in the village. He turned to Nara. "You have a home nearby, right? Would it be okay if we all went back to your place for this? I mean- if you don't feel comfortable with that, that's okay. We can visit an inn or something instead. You've already been so gracious today, helping me and all, and I'd hate to impose an impromptu cactus-eating on you." OOC: @ARROW404 @Snelly @Rahisaurus @Harvali@Lady Takanuva @Tarn @BULiK @Umbraline Yumiwa @Mel @BBBBalta
  4. IC, Eita: Ga-Koro Eita glanced down at the bandages Kanohi was offering, nodding as he took them, understanding that the Matoran was giving them as a response to his query about tying the Lesterin up. Eita walked to behind the Lesterin and grabbed his arms. The Lesterin recoiled a bit, but relaxed as the realization that he was well and truly caught set in. Eita tied the bandages around the Lesterin's wrists, binding them together behind the being's back. *** It wasn't long until the Stone Ape had been dealt with, and some Marines had shown up to investigate the warehouse and take statements. Eita and the others were standing off to the side under the setting sun. The Dashi was holding the small potted plant in his hands. His eyes glanced around before settling on Ranok and Sigrus, since those Matoran seemed to have intimate knowledge of the cactus. "So I guess I just slice up its fruit and eat it, then?" OOC: a little bit of light timeskipping and bunnying @Snelly @Rahisaurus @Harvali@Lady Takanuva @Tarn @BULiK @Umbraline Yumiwa @Mel @BBBBalta
  5. IC, Eita and evil Lesterin: Ga-Koro The Lesterin scowled and made a hissing sound between gritted teeth. "Not particularly, no," he spat, responding to Hakari's inquiry. Eita withdrew his katana from in front of the Lesterin's throat, but kept it pointed at him still. "We should probably tie him up, or something," he said. OOC: @ARROW404 If Kimala and Lapu could help Timak stop the Stone ape, that'd be great @Snelly @Rahisaurus @Harvali@Lady Takanuva @Tarn @BULiK @Umbraline Yumiwa @Mel @BBBBalta
  6. IC, Eita and evil Lesterin: Ga-Koro The Lesterin slunk back into the foliage and reactivated his Volitak, content with leaving the intruders to deal with his "pets". "Oh no you don't!" Eita shouted as he began to run after the Lesterin, seeing as his allies who had been grabbed by the plant Rahi were okay. Meanwhile, the Stone Ape paused briefly to look at Hakari, who was shouting at it to get its attention. The possessed primate snarled, took a step forward, and then was immediately distracted by a high pitched whistle coming from outside of the warehouse's door. The Rahi began lumbering toward the sound. The Lesterin heard the whistle as well, and ground his teeth in irritation. "What? No..." he muttered. He sucked in a breath to let out his own whistle, but his muttering had unfortunately allowed Eita to pinpoint his location. Eita leaped and slashed with his katana. The blade caught the Lesterin's leg. The being yelped in pain and fell to one knee. Eita glared at him and lifted the tip of the sword to the Lesterin's throat. "Don't move," Eita growled. The Lesterin let out a crooked, wicked smile. "You wouldn't run that blade through my throat. You Matoran are all cowards." Eita's eyes narrowed; he moved the blade a little bit deeper into the Lesterin's throat. A small drop of blood began to trickle. "Try me." At the same time, the Daikau was almost fully absorbed by Lapu. As the last bits of its leaves and "mouthparts" disappeared, the plant Rahi let out a dying, unearthly hiss. Certain vines and foliage around the warehouse immediately withered and died. The vines holding the warehouse door closed turned to dust. OOC: @ARROW404 @Snelly @Rahisaurus @Harvali@Lady Takanuva @Tarn @BULiK @Umbraline Yumiwa @Mel @BBBBalta
  7. IC, Eita and evil Lesterin: Ga-Koro Another shrill whistle reached the group’s ears. Unbeknownst to them, while they had been focused on trying to find the source of the voice, they hadn’t noticed the vines snaking along the ground toward them. At the sound of the whistle, the vines grabbed ahold of the ankles of Nara and Nichou, and lifted them high into the air. A sickly gurgling noise was heard next to them; the large bulbous plant opened, revealing itself to be a Daikau, albeit one of unusually large size. The assembled group looked back and forth between the infected Stone Ape and their friends who now found themselves dangling upside down above a very hungry plant-Rahi. “I am doing research here,” said the voice. “Research that I intend to take back home. You’ve been having those memories of home, too, I take it? Memories of Seprilli…” A rustle of leaves was heard, and a tall, slender figure appeared out of the foliage next to the Stone Ape. He wore green armor with yellow highlights, and wore a Volitak, but was very obviously the Lesterin that Kanohi had been in pursuit of. “As for this Stone Ape here, well, I needed something to test my latest creation on. Of course, a more sentient being like one of you would be better, but I have a feeling that none of you would be willing,” the Lesterin continued with a scowl. “So, unfortunately, you will all have to die now.” The Lesterin puckered his lips and whistled one last time. The Stone Ape next to him roared and charged at the group. OOC: @ARROW404 @Snelly @Rahisaurus @Harvali@Lady Takanuva @Tarn @BULiK @Umbraline Yumiwa @Mel @BBBBalta
  8. IC, Eita: Ga-Koro Unfortunately for Hakari, it wasn't going to be that easy. Before anyone else had a chance to speak, a shrill whistle pierced their hearing. The plant life around them began to shift and stir, as if it were a single organism awaking from slumber. At the entrance of the warehouse, several vines sprang out in front of a very startled Ranok and yanked the door shut. Smaller branches grew out and covered the front of the door. Another rustling caught the group's attention. Footsteps. The Matoran, Toa, and Lesterin all readied their weapons as a large Rahi lumbered out of the growth. Timak and Eita didn't recognize it, but the more seasoned inhabitants of the island did. The animal's brown coloration and spines indicated that it was a Spiny Stone Ape, but one that was both out of its natural desert habitat and also covered in a plant's foliage. A plant, in fact, that Kanohi and Hakari would recognize as being extremely similar to they encountered parasitizing a Gukko in Le-Wahi. The beast paused before the group, several flowers that Kanohi had previously surmised to act like eyes pointing directly at them. But it did not attack- was it waiting for something? "Hrrmmmm..." The collective beings heard a mumble from somewhere around them. "I don't recall inviting any guests to my abode..." The owner of the slightly raspy voice did not appear, nor could the group pinpoint where it was coming from. "Who are you, and why are you here?" OOC: @ARROW404 @Snelly @Rahisaurus @Harvali@Lady Takanuva @Tarn @BULiK @Umbraline Yumiwa @Mel @BBBBalta
  9. Eita nodded. “Alright, let’s head out,” he said. *** Using the map Ranok had obtained, the group was able to quickly reach the suspected hideout. It was an older building in typical Ga-Koroan style, made of a mixture of wood, metal, and plant material. Overgrown plant matter poked out through holes and darkened windows. From the outside, it appeared that nobody had occupied the building in a long time. Eita approached the warehouse’s door and unsheathed his crystal katana. He turned back to the group. “Be on your guard,” he said in a low voice. “We don’t really know what to expect in there. If any of you don’t want to come in with us, you’re free to stay outside.” With a small grunt, the Dashi slowly pushed the door open and stepped inside. The interior of the warehouse was what could only be described as a miniature forest, one that the overgrowth on the outside of the building had only hinted at. Small holes in the ceiling allowed light to filter through to feed the photosynthesis of the plants inside the building, and where there were no holes, lightstones were instead hung from ropes attached to ceiling beams. However, there was a very clear path through the manmade forest that lead to what Eita presumed to be the main focus of the hideout. A small area clear of foliage save for a very large plant off to the side of it. Within the clearing was a table with several lightstones around it, as well as a shelf filled with books, empty vials that were stained green, and several small plants in pots. One in particular caught his eye. A small, spiny plant, with several flowers and a single fruit growing out of it. The Dashi pointed it out to the group. “I think that’s the cactus,” he said in a hushed tone. He began to make his way forward toward it. OOC: @ARROW404 @Snelly @Rahisaurus @Harvali@Lady Takanuva @Tarn @BULiK @Umbraline Yumiwa @Mel @BBBBalta
  10. 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
  11. 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
  12. 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
  13. 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
  14. 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.
  15. 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
  16. 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
  17. 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
  18. 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!
  19. 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.
  20. 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.
  21. 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
  22. 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
  23. 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
  24. 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
