  1. In Search of the Past

    Taylel, weaving between the rocky outcroppings that feebly attempted to impede on their journey, caught Talia's question while he wedged himself through a crevice. He said nothing, helping the others behind him to make it through first, then with a smile playing on his lips he finally answered where she could hear him. "I happened to have a run in with her back in the capital. I was on my way to the frontier lands from there. I have an affinity for artifacts you see, and the frontier is full of them. So naturally, I have obtained quite a wealth of knowledge about the land. I was on my way out when I saw her advertisement for people with unique skills willing to travel and join. Of course, there's no pay, but I'm all right with that. So we've been traveling together since we left the capital," he explained half truthfully. He hadn't said anything false, but neither did he provide any specific information about himself, side stepping the latter half of the questions with the vague answer of I'm in it for the journey. Regalia paid close attention to his words, recording them all and analyzing them for anything that could help reveal himself, but it was nothing she hadn't heard. In fact, it was all surprisingly close to the truth, minus her advertisement. Rather than him finding her, she found him having heard that he was knowledgeable about artifacts. He wasn't much good for what she'd hoped, but knowing the land was enough to keep him around. After they'd gone a significant distance through the ravine, they came face to face with a stone wall that blocked their path. from there, they had to travel through the forest north along the mountain face until, finally, Tayel found the wide mouth that lead to the cave. "I knew it was around here somewhere," Tayel said with a slight chuckle. No one seemed amused at this and he proceeded to explain that the cave would take them to the other side, provided they don't get lost. By this time, however, it was already twilight, just on the verge of night. Regalia had no qualms travelling at all times of the day, but she couldn't make the same call for her companions. "Seeing as it's dark, I suggest we wait until morning to cross over. I'm sure you're tired after the trip all the way to the top, and then back down again," she said considerately, folding her arms and standing idly by. Though capable of complex emotions now, Regalia didn't display much in that way. She was one of very few of her kind that ever developed so much. However, as a queen and a war goddess, it was required that she quell any emotions that could interfere with her duty. Thus, while still feeling emotion, it was more like the emotions were hardly even surfaced, bringing into question whether she truly had any or simply faked it. Tayel, previously inspecting the cave, returned and asked, "Are we camping out here then? If so, I'll start a fire and cook something, assuming no one else feels like doing it this time around too."
  2. In Search of the Past

    "I agree with the lady. I say the demons can lick a shoe. A nasty one that some mutt has been chewing on for the last week before giving up and leaving to mold some back alley of Rak'Maun for several weeks, ignored by the disposal services because they get lazy and don't bother to clean such an alley," Tayel prattled on, then returned to the point, "We should venture on to Phaim! I know a couple who owns a tavern there we could stay for the duration of our visit. We might find leads there. After all, you said you searched most of Raxtin anyway, so there's no harm." Regalia heard him plenty well, but held Talia in her sight for a little longer than one might usually. Taking in the female's features and keeping a log of them. It wasn't as if Ragalia hadn't already memorized the woman's face, body, and voice, but something about her made it seem she was always ready to snap at someone. to avoid any unnecessary annoyances, she looked away and waved at Tayel. "All right. We'll take that course of action then. Since you're so confident in your knowledge and that's why I brought you along, do lead the way. I trust you know, but let's try to take the shortest route with the least hassle," she said, not withholding her motive for allowing him along. Tayel chuckled beneath his guise and adjusted the pack he carried. While mumbling his own amusement to himself, he turned from the cliffs and began heading along the ridge, aiming for a ravine cut into the rock long ago by weather that would carry them back down into the forest, and eventually into a cave complex that would come out on the other side of the mountains in Raxtin, the country of Iron Knowledge. Ironic to be named that when they imported more iron than any other country. In truth, it's title had nothing to do with iron, and only vaguely of their knowledge, It was the black ruins that gave them the name. Regalia had visited the black ruins once before when she first arrived, but was well aware that she wouldn't find anything of value there. It had all been secured either way, so no one went in or out anymore. with her own sigh and inner thoughts, Regalia stood analyzing the scene before her with less precision and more in appreciation, something she'd been lucky enough to obtain at birth. Then, like the wind that blew, she motioned with an elegant smile for the other two to follow and the scene melted as she focused on her footing rather than something trivial.
  3. It had already been more than three weeks since Regalia, running out of resources on her own, went in search of those who might aid her in the search for her lost comrades. As such, she had formed a hodgepodge group of people, the only ones who would even do so much as to humor and join her. Whether for their own goals or not, Regalia didn't care if they were in the group to benefit themselves, or just kill time. Any help was welcomed as long as it brought her closer to her goal. Standing at the edge of a cliff which had they'd been directed to before leaving town, Regalia sighed. She looked about from the vantage point and knew very well there was nothing even remotely close to the Synth in this densely mountainous terrain. One male human, one female healer, and one obligatory man in robs that no one in the group was quite sure about. He didn't say much, aside from the occasional quip for laughs, usually for his own amusement and more than just occasionally. It was just about the only thing he did. With his hooded robe, and a half-face mask, the man was quite the mystery. Any attempt to speak of himself was quickly, and rather skillfully side stepped, though sometimes obvious. Regalia saw through it, but eventually stopped inquiring. It wasn't worth the time doing it herself anymore, especially when the other two prodded enough as it was. Still, the man didn't let on anything, save that his name was Tayel. He claimed to know the lay of the land quite well and, despite his rather shady personage, he was true to his word. Their trip to the peaks of the canyons were made much easier by his keen knowledge. Regalia finally stepped away from the edge, brushing her long silver hair back from where the wind had blown, and sat on a large boulder. Her voice, the resonant lilt softened by the wind, rang out on the harsh terrain as she spoke to her current companions. "Well, I don't believe we will find anything useful here. as far as I can tell, there wouldn't be any way to safely traverse this area even if we there was. That aside, I believe that the other side of these mountains is occupied by the demons. It wouldn't be a fantastic experience running into them during a search," she said, straightening the nomadic cloak idly. "It'd be something all right, having an encounter with them. But hey! If you wanna turn back here, we can always take a trip to Raxtin rather than going to Phaim. This mountain range is the dividing border after all," Tayel said, using his hands as he spoke to hid his knowledge that demons lived close by there as well. Regalia considered this. The names of countries and continents were all new to her, and even if she could see an old map of the area, she probably wouldn't be able to make any kind of real correlation because of the drastic changes. She looked over to the other two and asked, "What do you think? I've no problems if it leads me closer, but you might have conflicting thoughts about going out of the country." (Sorry about the obvious exposition. I didn't work very hard to cover it up or progress the story. Still figuring things out really.)
  4. Ancient Arunian Empire

    Students are free to join too. I'm totally fine with that. Everyone has to get a start somewhere! ^.^ If you want to create a small character, do so here. Name: Age: Gender: Race: Appearance: Skills: (if applicable) Backstory: (sufficient backstory.)
  5. Chaotic Ripples

    Not a bad idea really. However, for the future, these threads should be made in the roleplay discussion section. The RPs themselves can take place here, but as the name implies, that's the place for talking through and signs up threads. ^.^
  6. Ancient Arunian Empire

    It is. There isn't really a story to follow at this point. it's really all just some background information and going to the starting point. From there, it's really up to the people who are doing the RP to start taking it in which ever direction. It's based off of my own story as I mentioned before, but they world delves much deeper into the foundations of everything, and it will eventually have a whole series of short stories leading up to this one here. In my own idea certain things happen, but I wanted to RP with it too since I love the idea of androids and mages/humans being together.
  7. //System Booting… //Loading Memory… //Running Diagnostics…Clean //System Check Pass… //Initializing Code::LUX… //Restoring…3…2…1… //DG_REGALIA_Q::N// After being locked in a pod for a century or three, the magic substance known as Luxcerium has been replenished on the planet Grudate in the lack of human presence. The pod activates and a woman escapes into dark, collapsed tunnels. Thinking logically, her best decision now is to escape the tunnels. With the layout still fresh in her mind, she makes her way through the dilapidated building and to a flight of stairs that would take her to the upper floors for escape. However, part way up they are collapsed and blocked as well. Sitting on the stairs and thinking of solutions, the rubble around and behind her collapses to reveal a young man, who is stunned speechless at the sight of a naked woman behind the rubble. Hey people who are still here. Thought I'd start up an RP for anyone who actually still likes this stuff. This is the beginning of another story I started writing, but never finished. In this story, there are three races to choose from: The returned Humans- Humans who came back to Grudate after centuries had passed and the planet was inhabitable again. The returned Mages- People who used the Luxcerium as a magic substance to cast spells and magic. The Arunian- A race of androids who run on the power of Lucerium. When the supple depleted, they all went into their life pods to wait for a day when they could thrive again. Their queen has awoken, but if any others have a well, they are few and far between. The story basically follows the queen after she wakes up, and the people who she interacts with from then on. You can be any race really, but remember Arunians are androids who were at war with the humans and mages when the earth was abandoned.
  8. AT LEAST LOOK, WOULD YA?! kthx~

    Well magma goes in red and comes out black. Is it just any water, or something specific? because I think, like, crustaceans do that when they are boiled for cooking.
  9. Welcome To The Jungle [OPEN Mini-RP]

    With red, irritated skin and eaten clothes, Gidget climbed the stairs at her own pace. She noticed that most of the chaos she'd heard from the others had faded, leaving only the sound of her boots, still mostly intact, that clapped against the stairs and the creaking of the building. She resisted the urge to scratch her wounds and instead focused on her scarf. It flicked and coiled, swished and swayed, all at her will. Occasionally, she would stop and listen for anything, but only once did she hear the sound of gunfire from elsewhere. Not my problem right now. I'll let them deal with that. Not like I have much in the way of surprise here, but whatever. Gidget slowed her pace slightly feeling something off in the atmosphere. It didn't take long to realize it was the radiation from the dragon's breath, however, it wouldn't do anything harmful to someone who shifted through different dimensions. She was built tougher than that.
  10. NC-17 Taken

    Crystal allowed Storm to touch and kiss her, a shiver from his touch running through her body and uncoiling some of the tension. When his hands came to rest on her hips her she remembered that they had come to shower, seeing the blood and dirt on her body again. "How about we get clean dear?" She said putting her hands on his gently turning around to look at him and smile, "I'll wash your back if you'd like."
  11. Welcome To The Jungle [OPEN Mini-RP]

    Coated in the layer of slime, Gidget could feel her skin start to tingle as she complained about how disgusting this was. Soon, however, her skin started to burn, and she realized it wasn't just slime, but it was eating away at her. Everything save her blade and scarf. "Geez! You stupid vampires! I swear I'm going to carve you up like one of those TV dinners!" she yelled out while trying to get the slime off. With no hope in the method she'd chosen, Gidget changed plans. Calming her breathing, she put the pain that had begun to seethe into her aside and focused. The air around her began to distort and an unusual power rippled through the space. Gidget's scarf began swishing back and forth as the power increased and then, without warning, she vanished in a cloud of purple petals. Not the third floor, but seven floors up Gidget reappeared with another puff of petals and the slime was absent from all her body, as well as a significant part of her clothes that were eaten away. "And I loved this skirt too," she said seeing how much have been eaten away. Though her skin was exposed, she paid no mind and continued up the floors, gripping and complaining about how she'd need a whole new outfit and a new bra as well having part of hers eaten away. I swear. When I get my paycheck for this one, I'm treating myself to something nice. I'll have plenty left after all. Especially if one of the others kicks the bucket. Guess I should watch out for more absurd traps. That Strigol isn't short of them is seems. C'mon girl. Fight on!
  12. Welcome To The Jungle [OPEN Mini-RP]

    Gidget waited expectantly, but much to her disappointment, there was nothing. Not a sound, not a change, not even a small money toy clashing cymbals. She tapped her foot impatiently and called again into the void around. "Hello? Anyone out there? It's rude to keep a lady waiting you know!" Still no response. "Geez. Nothing good all week. It's always gotta be something," she said to herself with a sigh, lowering her blade to her side briefly. Raising it with ease, Gidget braced one foot stepping forward and swung her blade upward diagonally into the nothing, then lazily and rather clumsily changed directions and swiped right in a straight line, the blade dragging her slightly before resting against the floor by the tip. She waited after this display then said, "I guess you're just afraid or something.Either way, it's boring I think I'll leave you here then." With an added rude tongue and eye gesture, She spun around and started heading for the stairs careful of anything that could happen as she set foot on the stairs again.
  13. Welcome To The Jungle [OPEN Mini-RP]

    Though the marking on the stairs piqued her interest, Gidget was far more curious about the stifling blackness that clouded the entirety of the third floor, or at least where she was. Casting a look at the mark, the pointed a finger and said, "You wait right there. I'll be back soon enough," adding on in her thoughts hopefully soon at least. Hearing the tell tale squeak again, Gidget spun around to address the matter, he scarf flicking slightly . "Alrighty then! I'm not entirely sure what's going on here, but since we're both aware of each other, how's about you pop out and chat for a bit," she called out, one hand on her hip, the other holding her weapon straight forward into the darkness.
  14. Welcome To The Jungle [OPEN Mini-RP]

    After waiting for no one to show in the end, Gidget decided to act on her own. She started into the building and pulled the curved blade from her back, scarf flicking slightly as she set out. Into the building and onto the first floor she went and with no further indications from the sound she'd heard. It could be real or not, but it didn't matter. Whatever the source it would show itself eventually have there a need for it. Gidget found a stair well and before she could start up the sounds of fight echoed from elsewhere. Guess they've already begun huh? I'm already unhappy with this, but I guess I can go it alone. She cast a look around the decrepit landscape with a shrewdness. It wasn't everyday she saw modern day relics in this world. A more rare sight than usual. She started up the stairwell and passed the first two floor before emerging onto the third floor just to view the sight. If they are fighting, I can take my time anyway. Best to go it silently rather than blazing like them she thought while weighing the blade on her shoulder. (sorry. Just kinda going along.)
  15. Welcome To The Jungle [OPEN Mini-RP]

    Gidget's ears twitched ever so slightly at the sound. For years she'd tuned herself to the sounds of nature and the sounds that didn't belong. To survive in the wilderness and the civilized alike, you must adapt in such a way. What was that? My imagination? C'mon girl, you know better than that. Get your A game on! Vampires could mean bats. Bats would make a sound like that, but I might have trouble finding something like that. Gidget quickly sought the source of this sound if there was one. In the midst of day she couldn't see this being likely, but there was always a chance for the unlikely just like the impossible. (Is there a bat 0.0?)
