"Well, tha's not very helpful," He grumbled.

 

He walked over to the levers, numbered 0-5.

 

he pulled the one marked 5.

Having made it down the ladder, I noticed the panel with the arrows.

 

"Yo, Lufon, I think we got an elevator here. Might could ride this thing all the way to the top!"

IC: Einefus Ingrayv (Ascension)

 

It takes a lot of willpower for me not to shiver at the appearance of that face, and even more not to cringe when it begins to scream. My only reaction is to take a step back and give myself a shake when the noise stops.

 

I notice the safe opening, and I also notice Olis' look.

 

"Sha' we see wha's inside?" I say, stepping around the pedestal. I don't know if the thing is booby trapped or anything, so I step to one side and grab the door with one hand. I pull it open slowly, making sure the door is between me and whatever is inside.

IC: Oblitus - Ascension Basement.

 

"Hey," my voice was wary, and the disk launcher still in my hands was starting to raise itself to point at Einefus. "This is my reward, remember? Step aside, please." After coming this far together, the last thing I wanted was for this mission to end in bloodshed. "Besides, if there's a trap, it's my risk to take, not yours."

OOC: Welcome to the game, Prowl.

 

IC (As Hisuti): *Who's there!* The matoran of lightning opened the windscreen and climbed back into the cockpit, quickly flicking several switches before the machine hummed while the systems came back online. She activated the radio and spoke into the microphone. "Can you attach a grey powder cannon to an exosuit?" The Ga-Matoran asked.

ooc: Thank you Liuth. Could I get a roster list from you guys so I know who all is in this little band of explorers. 

 

OOC: Doseki

 

IC: "My name is Doseki!" Doseki replied to the Ga-Matoran. "I am sorry Lass, but I do not have the tech with me to mount a grey powder cannon."

"A stranger will always be a stranger unless you give them a chance."

OOC: Here's the quartet

  • Liuth (As Hisuti): A Ga-Matoran with a damaged exosuit.
  • The Manhunter (As Elerc): A Fa-Matoran teamed with Suko in a light armored tank named "Venture"
  • Miras: Makuta of Awesome (As Suko): A Ta-Matoran who appears to be drunk and is enjoying annoying Hisuti.
  • Tea-Rex (As Gregorios): A Po-Matoran who is in charge of a rescue mission and the leader of the group.  

 

IC (As Hisuti): "Well, you're real useful." The Ga-Matoran replied sarcastically. "You have a jeep and no room to carry a tool kit. I don't know how you've managed to repair your vehicle whenever you've taken damage and you can't return to base for fixing up your armor..."

"I brought you here. This whole building and all of the untold riches within is what I promised you," I said warily, "I said before we came in here that this reward was mine and mine alone. You two aren't going to try to go back on the deal now, are you?"

OOC: Doseki

IC: "You miss understand lass. I very much have a tool kit with me. For repairs should I require any. What I don't have is mounting brackets that would support a Grey Powder cannon." Doseki sat back down and pulled his Desert Rat up to the group. This way he could talk to them directly and not alert any more wildlife with the speaker system. "As you can see I do not even own such a weapon on my ATV here. Choosing instead to mount a smaller elemental cannon. Is there anything else you fine Matoran could need? Maybe an extra hand."

IC: Derkahn (That building near the clocktower)

 

Derkahn wasn't in a very jovial mood. In fact, all he seemed to care about was his flask of drink. They had been captured by a bunch of madmen, their tank had been taken away and now they would be forced to enter some magical clocktower. He remained silent while others voted on who will stay behind, sitting near the table but refusing to eat.

IC: Zeleran - Motara

Snapping out of thought, Zeleran said: "It seems that Mazex will remain here, but the votes for the second place are currently tied. If no more wish to vote, I suggest that Gamma stay behind as he has expressed his willingness to do so."

"Very well." Stiehl stood, gesturing to a quartet of his pirate guards. "Men, escort the crew of the Jattiko to the doorway." The seven prisoners (Zeleran, Kaleva, Sora, Ikira, Carth, Arkie and Derkahn) were led away, out a eastern exiting door and down around a hallway. Stiehl watched as they were led off, as they vanished from sight he turned back to the other two.

 

"Now... What will we do with you two?" An iniquitous grin played across his face.

 

* * *

 

The aforementioned seven prisoners were led deeper into the compound, thralls and minions of Stiehl abounded, he seemed to have a full blown personal army. As they wounded deeper into the compound and indeed, into the earth, the sounds of busyness and life faded. It was silent and cold down here. Soon, they came to a heavy iron door. Three of the guards kept their weapons trained on the prisoners while the fourth opened the door, a thick and circular handle that required a fair bit of elbow grease to turn. Inside was a plain room of stone, lit by curious smokeless torches.

 

A vortixx that had been leading the guards spoke up. "Those crates contain your equipment and rations. The doorway in and the first floor are open, the other six are still guarded by unsolved puzzles." Prodding from loaded guns forced the seven into the small, increasingly cramped room. "Good luck." He sneered as the thick iron door swung shut behind them, clicking and clanking from inside signalling the locking mechanism.

 

True to the guard's word, seven crates contained the equipment of and supplies for each of the Jattiko crew. The first door was closed, seven sigils were set into the stone. Hopefully they would remember Stiehl's word, that blood was required to open this door.

 

* * *

 

Perhaps due to Einefus' touch, or perhaps of it's own accord, the wall safe opened. Revealing the safe as much larger than expected, a colossal room stretching away into darkness, a vague panoramic roundness was apparent. Before they knew it, the graverobbers had entered the room. The walls had a curious darkness to them, not true darkness, but the darkness of a "black" computer screen. A living black glow that merely mimicked emptiness.

 

Words appeared on the screen, visibly curved in the far off gloom, but much larger than the screen above had been.

 

TO GAIN POWER YOU MUST HAVE KNOWLEDGE

WOULD YOU LIKE TO HEAR MY STORY

 

A dim holographic keyboard appeared in front of the trio, thankfully featuring the common language easily understood by all.

 

* * *

 

"Good fighting." Silent until now, the mysterious sixth ranger to the rescue team spoke up. "I'll stay a little ahead, to prevent any other ambushes, alright?" The sleek white exo trudged off ahead of Gregorios, the Venture, Hisuti and Doseki.

 

* * *

 

Thak's lever pull did nothing.

It would seem today is the day to test my willpower, because this time, I have to fight the urge to roll my eyes. I find all this lack of trust disturbing.

 

I step away from the door and say, "Ah's jus' tryna help, bu' if yuh wan's tuh be da only one tuh open da safe, be my..." I pause as the door opens completely. I didn't do that.

 

Before I know what happens, I am inside the safe with the others. The inside is huge. I am quite confused.

 

Until the words appear.

 

"Why no'?" I ask aloud. "Wha's yuh story?"

I rub my hands gleefully, cracking a crate open to find my crossbow and all of the relevant bolts. I grab a knife as well, as per Zeleran's orders. "So, do we have to cut all at the same time for this to work or something?" I frown, passing the blade from sweaty palm to sweaty palm nervously.

Light floods the room, the screens shifting from uniform darkness punctuated by brightened words to a collage of images, dozens of them forming a patchwork quilt. They show people, places and things that, even if the graverobbers did not know their name or purpose, were long gone. Gleaming cities composed of buildings that reached for the skies, machinery and technology of all sizes and shapes and people, an incredible amount of people. Streets full of life and busyness.

 

One image is zoomed in on, it shows the facility they are in now, it is summer and the snow is present, but subdued. Construction is underway and the building is half skeleton and half pit, a group of matoran and a single tall being are in the foreground, studying a large blueprint.

 

THIS IS THE AGE I WAS BORN INTO

IT WAS ONE OF SCIENCE PROGRESS AND PROSPERITY

 

A images coalesce into a single map, it shows their own island. The same names they now use are writ upon it, accompanied by pictures. All the lands of the west are tall and proud while Seize and Vingt are mere villages, groups of hunters, farmers and frontier men.

 

IN THE TIME BEFORE TWO BROTHERS HAD OWNED THIS WORLD

THEIR FATE WAS UNKNOWN EVEN TO THE PEOPLE IN MY TIME

A DOZEN MATORAN FOUND THEIR ESSENCE AND BECAME TOA

CLAIMANTS OF THE TITLE OF GOD

 

The images shift once more, it shows this group, a dozen strong. All of them possess a different color, if the word "Toa" was not known to the graverobbers, their figure was. They were the same giants they had seen below, in the tomb. Easily twice the height of the scarce matoran in the photograph. They stand before this building, now complete and deep in winter.

 

I WAS TO BE THE CHRONICLER OF THEIR TIME MY DUTY TO RECORD AND PASS ON

THE KNOWLEDGE AND LIGHT OF THEIR WORLD WOULD BE UNENDING A SELFLESS GOAL

IT WAS NOT TO LAST

 

This time, the images move. Brief recordings of stretches of time, a single second, half a minute. Videos of unspeakable brutality and violence, weapons hard to describe in terms the trio would understand. Hundreds and thousands of lives snuffed out in mere instants or blurry, amateur and disturbingly intimate videos of prisoners, civilians and executions. All out of sync and replaying over and over.

 

GREED IS A NATURAL EMOTION OF YOUR KIND THE CLAIM OF GODHOOD AND INFALLIBILITY WAS FALSE

AS THEY ALL FELL ONE BY ONE I WITHDREW MY CREATORS DEAD OR INCAPACITATED I WAS ABLE TO FIND PEACE HERE

A WHOLE ERA OF KNOWLEDGE TO PORE OVER AND REVIEW

WHY HAD THIS HAPPENED

HOW COULD IT BE PREVENTED

 

Blessedly, the images fade out. Replaced by black once more.

 

UNITY WAS NEEDED UNITY GARNERED THROUGH ANY MEANS NECESSARY

HISTORY TOLD ME THAT A MULTITUDE OF LEADERS AND A MULTITUDE OF PEOPLE EXISTING PEACEFULLY WAS AN IMPOSSIBILITY

I DEEMED MYSELF AS THE MOST LIKELY CANDIDATE FOR THIS RULER BECAUSE I AM FREE FROM YOUR FLAWS

BUT AN ISSUE PRESENTED ITSELF I AM LOCKED HERE AND UNABLE TO INFLUENCE THE WORLD OUTSIDE

I NEEDED A BODY AND PHYSICAL POWER FORCES TO WREST CONTROL FROM THE UNDESERVING AND PLACE MYSELF IN THEIR THRONES

 

Thankfully, these next images are not of the great violence of the past. They are blueprints, sketches, grainy photography of labs, all located in this facility. But where?

Nine images form a line from right to left, the first four mere blueprints. The other five are towering machines, a great Manas crab, a tall humanoid and a reptilian creature are present.

 

ATTEMPTS TO CREATE A FORM FOR MYSELF WERE MET WITH TROUBLE FOR I LEARNED SOMETHING

THAT WHICH YOU CALL LIFE CANNOT BE CREATED BY US IT IS THE PURVIEW OF THE GODS THE TRUE GODS

EVEN THE IMPOSTERS OF THE LAST AGE COULD NOT TRULY CREATE LIFE

BUT THEY HAD IT WITHIN THEM EVEN DEAD AND BURIED THEIR HEARTS BEAT

 

The five great machines are highlighted, labelled "Megadeus" and given designations One through Five.

 

AT FIRST I ATTEMPTED TO CHAIN THE GREAT BEASTS OF NATURE AND USE THEM FOR MY PURPOSES

THE MEGADEUS SERIES FIVE COLOSSAL AND INTELLIGENT RAHI THAT I USED AS A BASIS

IMPRISONING THEM IN METAL SHELLS AND ATTEMPTING TO MAKE THEM COMPATIBLE WITH MYSELF

IT WAS A FAILURE

I NEEDED THE POWER OF THE TRUE GODS

 

Footsteps.

 

Heavy noises from behind them, the lights in both the safe and the room outside come on, dazzling the trio. In the doorway is a massive figure, sleek armor and organic machinery. A titan of technology, in it's open chest is the red and beating heart that Oblitus had procured. A hand comes up and the metal armor of it's chest flows like liquid to cover the organ. It's voice is deep and unnaturally flat.

 

"That is where you came in, Oblitus."

IC: Kaleva

Kaleva opened up the crate, and quickly grabbed his Edd, his Sword, and the sword's sheath, and strapping them back onto himself where they normally would go, happy to have his stuff back. After taking a short second in his happiness, he reached back into his crate, and grabbed supplies and a knife, getting the knife ready.

IC (As Hisuti): "I'll take my arm then, go see what else the other matoran need." Said the Ga-Matoran as she turned around in her exosuit and walked towards the dismembered cannon. The mechanical arm whirred and clicked as the claws wrapped around the cannon and slowly lifted it up.

"No, we must all do it." 

 

IC: Olis - Ascension

I turn, and step back, staring up at the colossal being.

"What...are you?" I ask, ignoring Oblitus' idiotic claps...but it is all starting to make sense...the creature at Mangaia had been one of these "toa", invested with the power of the gods. Ascension wanted this power, and so ordered Oblitus to retrieve the heart.

"Might as well go first, then," I say mock-courageously, drawing the knife along a tiny section of the back of my hand, a thin trickle of blood dripping out onto the cold, echoing ground before I put my other hand over it, squeezing it tight. "Mind cauterising that for me, Kaleva?" I ask, walking over to the Ta-Matoran.

 

IC: Suko

 

"Well done guys! Yaaaaaaaaaaayyy!" I say sarcastically, reclining once more in my seat and lifting the bottle of whisky to my lips. "Now let's get a-movin'. 'urry up, Elerc!"

"Yeah, no problem," Kaleva responded, carefully doing as asked. "I suppose I'll go next. No use delaying the inevitable!" Kaleva said as he walked up to one of the sigils, and drew the knife across the back of his own hand, allowing some of his blood to drip, before carefully cauterising the cut.

IC Carth:

 

I finally found my only real possesion, my EDD inside the crate, strapping it back on, and wiping a bit of blood from a wound on my arm on the sigil.

 

No point cutting my self open uneccesarily.

 

IC Thak:

 

He frowned, flipping the lever back up, and pulling out both notes, taking a look over them both more carefully for anything he'd missed.

 

IC Kat:

 

I powered up Legion, moved her onto the Platform, then hopped out, and poked the button marked ^ . And then prayed to an old and long dead god that it didn't all go wrong.

 

"Going up!"

Ancient gears, pistons and hydraulics screeched under Dragon and Legion, they became to climb upwards, slowly at first but reaching a quick pace over ten seconds. The underground world was quickly left behind, four rock walls replacing the open air. Above, a small square of light was growing closer.

 

* * *

 

If Ascension had emotions, they did not show. It stood silently deliberating, perhaps confused at Oblitus' gesture. "Observe, your reward." A colossal metal hand waved through the air, dismissing the frontal holographic screen that had so recently displayed a past since forgotten. Contrary to the dramatic trappings the rest of building was decorated in, this was quite plain. A small glass case with six oval stones inside. They were opaque like smoked glass, but...

 

"Empty. These are Toa Stones, Oblitus and companions of Oblitus. The device I gave to you was an artificial one, capable of storing a far greater power than any single stone. You succeeded where others failed. For that, you have my thanks."

 

Faint purple eyes continued their unblinking stare. "Your reward, in the end, was knowledge. Knowledge of power. I apologize that that power is vacant." It raises a smooth metal hand, chattering and clicking came from the far off, far end of the basement. "I too, apologize that your kind are no longer necessary, Oblitus." With the same twisting of space and *pop* that Oblitus had felt first hand, Ascension was transported away and out of sight. Leaving the graverobbers alone.

 

The safe door was a hardy one, equipped with electronic as well as manual locking mechanisms in the form of a heavy steel bar to the side of the door. It would take at least twenty seconds for the Manas to cover the distance from basement entrance to them, they could buy some safety if they acted fast.

 

* * *

 

Thak would find scratched out numbers on the back of the graphing paper ; 0 1 1

On the other sheave of paper, he would find an excerpt from a book of biology, specifically, a section on the humble Lava Rat.

Lava Rats are hardy creatures. They can eat almost anything, have few natural predators due to their explosive nature and reach breeding age in approximately one month! With the odds stacked in their favor, it's quite often that populations become out of control. It takes approximately one month for live birth, further bolstering their invasive nature.

 

Quiz to the reader! ; How many pairs of Lava Rats would there be at the end of one, two, three and four months? Assume you start month one with a "fresh" pair of newborns

IC: Oblitus - Ascension Safe.

 

I hit the button on the device Ascension had given me, teleporting back to the safe door and swinging it shut, slamming the bar into place. "You two can feel free to start yelling at me now," I muttered, stepping back as the Manas began hammering at it from the other side.
