  1. OOC: only took two years huh also i had the wonderful problem where you are auto-logged out while writing so i had to rewrite the dartakh section from scratch, love when this happens IC: Sir Dahkapa (Ko-Koro Gates) It had taken a while, but Dahkapa was finally back home. The cold and clean mountain air was a welcome relief from the hot and dusty winds of Po-Wahi. He had been right, leaving the Blackrock Canyon. There had been plenty of time to think about many things. Which included not going to Ko-Koro in the first place. Part of him expected the guards to already see him as an enemy instead of a friend, yet thankfully they seemed to let him enter. He had thought about how difficult it was to convert followers of Mata Nui without the conversion methods of the Brotherhood. Now he understood their grim necessity. But he still refused to use them. He had to be better than that. The easiest path was never the route to salvation. True redemption required trials and sacrifice. If it meant sacrificing a potential friend, so be it. He was willing to sacrifice so much more for Ak'rei'an. He looked around the gates of Ko-Koro, partially expecting to see Joskander. But he was nowhere to be seen. It did not matter. His mind had been set in stone. Fitting, after visiting Po-Wahi. His long steps followed the shortest route to a certain unremarkable alleyway. IC: Dartakh (The Dark Walk) While Dartakh was satisfied to be offered a free meal and hear his name pronounced correctly, he did not let it distract himself from what was happening. He watched closely as the Lieutenant fired the perfect shot. "Impressive," he muttered. Then came the order to move. In his mind, Dartakh criticized the Lieutenant for giving an unclear order. Who should move, and where? But now was not the time for lessons in leadership. They had to survive this ordeal first. Obeying his first order, Dartakh remained close to the Lieutenant's clone. But also obeying his new order, he moved in front of the clone, his shield raised and mace ready to strike. His eyes fixated on the enemy, yet his senses remained aware of his surroundings. He was ready to either attack or retreat if ordered to do so. OOC: @Endless Sea (Alaki Nuva)@Light
  2. IC: Xani (Streets of Atero) Xani offered a polite smile to Jeizmel. "Thank you for the compliment. Good luck with your endeavours, you two. I don't plan on leaving Atero just yet, even if I've already made a profit. Perhaps you two were just the first two customers of the day, and I'll find many more." She didn't believe her own words. She bowed respectfully to each of them, then turned to her chariot and the Spikit guiding it. The ravenous creature snapped its jaws at her, startling Xani. "Oh, right, I should go buy some food for this savage creature." She calmed herself and took out a whip from the cargo sled, then skillfully lashed at the Spikit several times. The creature whined from pain and bled a little, which seemed to subdue it somewhat. Xani then started to guide it back inside the stable, keeping herself at a safe distance from the twin-headed beast's salivating mouths. OOC: @That Matoran with a Vahi@Toru Nui
  3. IC: Xani (Streets of Atero) Xani nodded gratefully and gave Vraek the shimmering crystal necklace. Her remark about Iconox was so relatable it made her chuckle. "Thank you, thank you. Maybe this trinket will give you luck in battle." Then she turned to face Jeizmel, pleased to see she was already admiring her bracelet. "Thank you as well. As for Tajun... well, I haven't been there in a while, so maybe I should revisit it." Of course, she had no reason to go to a place that did not participate in slave trade. But maybe they'd appreciate her works as much as these two did. Already, she was fantasizing about returning to her old life. But these two felt like exceptions. Who could say if she'd find more good customers like this? At least, there was always demand for slaves. Always. At the very least, this "vacation trip" to Atero had already turned out better than she had expected, she thought as she counted the money. Now she could take it easy. "So, I suppose that's everything? You probably have places to go to or things to do. When's that tournament starting, anyways?" OOC: @That Matoran with a Vahi@Toru Nui
  4. IC: Xani (Streets of Atero) Xani smiled when Vraek pointed at a necklace and Jeizmel asked about the bracelet. It wasn't a wide smile, as they were far from being her most elaborate or laborious creations and thus she couldn't charge too much for them, but money was money. She did think about the fact that a single slave was worth about a dozen or more of her necklaces or bracelets. She offered the necklace to Vraek and the bracelet to Jeizmel. Both of them had small paper price tags attached to them. "Wonderful choices! Of course, I accept payment in any currency you have. I'm sure you two find the prices to be reasonable." They were rather expensive trinkets. OOC: what currencies are even used in bara magna coz i forgor and cant find any info so i improvised @Toru Nui@That Matoran with a Vahi
  5. IC: Xani (Streets of Atero) "Well, of course, of course," she said to Vraek with a slight chuckle. "My crafts are meant to be admired, not used in battle. Though you shouldn't underestimate the sharpness of crystal, either." She then turned to Jeizmel with a smile. "Anything helps. Money is hard to come by these days." Unless you were a slave trader, of course. Finally, she turned back to face the direction she had come from, and urged the two to follow with a motion of her hand. "Come, I have not yet unloaded by goods since arriving here, so everything is still in the stables. Follow me..." After a short while of walking, she arrived near the city gates. "Wait here," she told the two and walked inside the stables. Not much time passed before a rowdy two-headed Spikit pulled a chariot outside, guided by Xani. She then started to unload some of the crystal crafts from the cargo sled that was attached to the chariot. "Don't mind the Spikit, I haven't fed it in a while, I really should go buy food for it before it eats anyone... which you can help me with by buying any of these!" She showed various crystalline items to the two, such as rings, bracelets, masks, ceremonial weapons, necklaces, drinking glasses and so on. They were all polished to perfection and expertly made. "What do you think?" OOC: @That Matoran with a Vahi@Toru Nui
  6. IC: Sir Dahkapa (Blackrock Canyon) Dahkapa raised an eyebrow. It seemed like Joskander had decided to leave him behind. His previous bitter warning about lack of water now seemed pointless, as he probably wouldn't run out if he'd cross the desert at this speed. Joskander hadn't uttered a single word about what he was planning, but he knew it wasn't anything good. Part of him thought that returning to Ko-Koro would be a bad idea. And perhaps it was. But with Ak'rei'an on his side, he had nothing to fear. Let the heathen plot whatever he wished, he thought, and continued marching across the desert. Without a Mask of Speed, it would be a lengthy and slow journey. Plenty of time to think. OOC: Dahkapa to Ko-Wahi
  7. IC: Sir Dahkapa (Blackrock Canyon) "Back to Ko-Koro," he replied without turning back to face him or stopping. He was heading back the way they had come. "I care not if you follow, but the desert is treacherous to cross alone... especially without water, or ice. Might be wise for you to do so. But don't expect much generosity or kindness from me." OOC: @Endless Sea (Alaki Nuva)
  8. IC: Xani (Streets of Atero) "Thank you, thank you," she said with a smile. "And yes, of course I made it with my very own hands. I have a variety of masks, too, but I feel like this is one of my finest." It was good that there were some who appreciated true art. But it was a different question if they were willing to pay to acquire it, unfortunately. "If you have the time to spare, you could come with me so I can show you more of my work. And, of course, you can buy some of the crafts if you'd like, for a good price." If she didn't make any money on this Atero trip, she'd have to pay another visit to the... well, she preferred not to think about it for now. OOC: @That Matoran with a Vahi@Toru Nui
  9. OOC: xani wasnt directly speaking to jeizmel so i figured i can "skip turn" so jeizmel has something she can respond to IC: Xani (Streets of Atero) "Well... I am not exactly a 'fan' of the violent brutish tournaments. I am mostly just happy to see members of my tribe here! I feel like outsiders never really understand us or our practices, you see. Like crystal crafting for example. Speaking of which, would either of you be interested in seeing my works?" She blinked as she realized she had forgotten about something. "Ah, pardon my lack of manners," she said with an apologetic nod. "My name is Xani. Pleasure to meet both of you." OOC: @Toru Nui@That Matoran with a Vahi
  10. IC: Oliphko (Onu-Koro) "Aaaah okay I get it now. Interesting arrangement, we uh, didn't have anything like this in Po-Koro, at least back when I was last there." She walked behind Ferron, following him and somewhat anxiously glancing at any strangers who happened to pass by. "So uh... have you been to this place before? To the one we're going to right now, I mean. Is the staff there friendly?" OOC: @Geardirector
  11. IC: Sir Dahkapa (Blackrock Canyon) He sighed. "I see it is going to take a long time before I can disassociate my faith from the Brotherhood in the eyes of Mata Nui's followers. But it matters not, as I am patient. There is much to be done..." With his foot, he kicked the tablet on the ground, shattering it into pieces which scattered into the sands. Then, he walked past Joskander, not looking behind him as he headed out of the canyon. He said nothing as he left. OOC: @Endless Sea (Alaki Nuva)
  12. IC: Xani (Streets of Atero) "Ah, yes, that was the name," she said with a forced chuckle. "And well, some Glatorian fight for the highest bidder, not for their tribe. But I am glad to hear you're loyal to your people! There are more important things in life than money, after all." She glanced at the Agori next to Vraek. "And uh, is this an assistant of yours? Or a fan, perhaps?" OOC: @Toru Nui@That Matoran with a Vahi
  13. IC: Sir Dahkapa (Blackrock Canyon) "To an unbeliever I may indeed seem like a madman, but that could not be further from the truth. You do not know what it is like to be filled with zealous fervor. Being passionate about something greater than yourself is a great feeling... if only you were not so closed-minded, you could feel the same way." OOC: @Endless Sea (Alaki Nuva)
  14. IC: Sir Dahkapa (Blackrock Canyon) He let out a dry chuckle. "The way you said it makes it sound like Ak'rei'an is a god who gives death, instead of a god who can save us from death. It appears that you are once again prejudiced. I've been trying to make you understand that the Brotherhood did not define my religion, as its members were blinded by zealotry. But my eyes see everything clearly. Unlike yours." OOC: @Endless Sea (Alaki Nuva)
