The Lion's Blade[Plot][Closed]
« on: August 03, 2017, 05:08:17 PM »
OOC: Posting order will be set to Freeform, except during crunch time. In general, you can post in any order at any time, but don't get out of control if someone hasn't posted for a while. This thread is supposed to be lots of explosions and lots of fun. If someone is posting slow about how many Grimm they just mauled into the ground, we'll just press on and assume they mauled a lot. Just assume Michael Bay is directing it. Make sure you look away from explosions too if you cause them. Very important.





Prologue

The Lion's Blade. An ancient weapon said to be able to nullify Aura constructs, allowing it to easily cut apart humans and faunus as easily as Grimm. It could also take the shape of any bladed weapon instantly. The blade was forged hundreds of years ago for a traveling warrior named Leo. With it, he cut down thousands of Grimm as he and his band traveled the continent of Sanus, searching for a way to destroy the Grimm completely, once and for all.

The story of The Lion is a fairly well-known story wrapped in folklore and speculation. Keeping track of history has always been difficult on Remnant, and the truth of this story was lost to the ages. Still, it's often told to children in a way that portrays Leo as a great hero who saved villages and towns from evil.

The leadership in Vale was quick to act when word got out that some records containing evidence regarding the story of The Lion had been found. After verifying their credibility, the government suppressed information as best they could on it. If the blade really did exist, and after this find they were suspicious, then the weapon needed to be found and destroyed or safely stored. In the wrong hands, the weapon could cause untold destruction with its Aura suppressing abilities.

When their specialist returned empty-handed and suffering from what appeared to be dementia or maybe even insanity, they struggled to keep the information under wraps. People were growing curious of where these new rumors were coming from. They still didn't want to run the mission to collect the weapon through public channels. So they turned to Alban Inverno, headmaster of Beacon Academy. He would be able to send a team of students on a routine mission to Petros, the abandoned town the sword is supposedly lost at. Included would be a staff member from Beacon, who could then collect the weapon. This type of thing had happened before. There were concerns about sending student huntsmen to the location after seeing what happened to their specialist, but after experts claimed he would recover the vote passed.

And so, on an unmarked Friday, a mission became available to students to clear Petros of Grimm. Petros is an old city that has been abandoned for years. It is a relatively common training site for Beacon Academy to use, as it is always crawling with Grimm. The worst part was that it was such a far distance away. The trip was done overnight due to the length of the flight, and such lengthy missions could sometimes be delayed in their return.

And so, just before six o'clock that evening, four students arrived at the Beacon Docks. Their "instructor" was Kirkka Scarlet. Though she doesn't do any teaching, she does work for the Academy and is often tapped for missions. She was going over some data on her scroll when the others arrived. Behind her was an Air Bus, standard issue at Beacon Academy. Mia Brightspear, the owner of the "Loaded for Bear" Dust shop on the Academy grounds, was just finishing loading up what seemed like way too much cargo while her pet bear Waffle lazed about in his armor.

As the four students arrived, Kirkka spoke with them briefly and checked them all in on her scroll. As you pass her you can catch a glimpse that she looked to be reading Beacon's Profiles for each student. Good to know your allies.

Just a few minutes later, the Air Bus lifted off with Mia as pilot, Kirkka as Mission Advisor, and then the volunteers: Akeldama Blood-Heart, Fallow Russet, Airi Okairos, and Graham Dylandy. The trip was going to be quite long, and so Kirkka recommended that everyone get some rest during the flight. Refreshments will be available throughout the night.








A voice came through the cabin intercoms. "Briefing is in 5. Touch down in 10. Gear up."

The voice was that of Kirkka Scarlet, who was currently with Mia in the cockpit. The announcement that came through was hopefully enough to wake anyone still sleeping. Looking around the Air Bus, it is easy to tell this vehicle was made for comfortable long flights. It was like riding first class, or maybe even better. There were only 12 seats, two per row, with large windows that had variable tinting running along both sides, providing a great view. There was tons of room to walk around and store things as well. This was much better than the short ranged Bullhead transports. The chairs even reclined so far that they basically became beds. It was quite a nice ride to be transporting a bunch of students to a Grimm infested area so they could purify the area.

There is a ton of supplies being stored in the back end of the Air Bus. The supplies look like a whole bunch of Dust and Dust accessories, many of them catered to be of use to the students. There is even a crate labeled, "DANGER: CONTENTS UNDER PRESSURE", and another one with "DANGER: EXPLOSIVES". Mia comes prepared, it seems. The pile of supplies has a guard, as well. In the form of a large armored bear. He stayed put throughout the trip, only moving around a few times but keeping his distance from the students. He seemed quite okay with being on a plane and took a nap when the other students did. Currently, he is sitting next to the Explosives, leaning slightly against it. At the front of the cabin where Kirkka was sleeping earlier is a much smaller set of supplies, her property, no doubt.

It was still dark outside the windows, but dawn was on the way. The sky had changed from blackness to a faint blue color, and the ground below was faintly visible. They were quite a ways up but still well below cloud level as they flew over the darkness of some forested area. There was little to see other than that, though, since they had yet to arrive and it was just a little too dark.


Well... better gear up and make sure everyone is awake, fed and ready to go.

Akel rose up from two of the retactable seats which currently acted as her temporary bed. She didn't have the three vests that usually adorned her and neither did her coat, rather they laid beside her being used as a sort of pillow and she wore her turtleneck, pants and shoes that normally came with her attire, plus the belts and having gone to sleep with her hair tied up into a ponytail.

The ring of a vaguely familair voice eoke her up, albeit only just and she stirred around for a tiny bit before glancing her eyes through the window to see the view. Akel realised that the announcment was probably important so she got up from her "bed", grabbing the first of her three vests and glancing around at the same time to try and spot her teammate of team BTRA, Fallow Russet before putting on her other two vests and slinging her coat around her shoulders.

Fallow was lying in the row behind Akel on a fully reclined seat with his hat over his face while he slept. Having expected to get up and have little time to prepare he had decided to sleep fully equipped and ready to go. The announcement stirred him and he slowly rose into a sitting position and pulled his hat up to rest on the top of his head. He gave a smile to Akel in a morning greeting before getting to his feet and pulling his switchblades out and twirling them in his hands flicking them in and out with a strong smile on his face. Today I get to find out if all those rumours are true. Shouldn't be too hard to get separated and have a look around. This "Lion's Blade" is really interesting. Fallow had taken this mission almost exclusively for the purposes of learning for himself if the rumours he had been hearing about an ancient weapon being hidden here and driving the guy who went to find it insane were true. Sure it was dangerous. Though safety is seldom fun.

Airi slid Fateweaver onto her right hand.  She had already awoken before Kirkka had come to wake up the students.  Slowly bending the clawed fingers on Fateweaver, Airi inspected the weapon, examining its dust mechanisms in the upper gauntlet as well as making sure the thread spools on her hip flowed freely and smoothly.  She had read the mission briefing reports on the fabled Lion's Blade beforehand, but to be honest, she was not quite convinced yet of its existence.  Nonetheless, she reasoned that if the school was committing resources to follow up on leads, the claims couldn't be too outrageous.

Yawning as his seat slid upright, Graham lazily grabbed his butterfly tanto in his left hand and a drink in his right, spinning and flipping the blade over in his hand with swift, precise movements. He was in no rush whatsoever to leave the comfort of his reclining chair, not even to go over and try to pet the big armoured bear in the back, which he had developed an interest in during the duration of the flight. He would have loved to slide a pair of headphones on and blast music in his ears, but the announcement said otherwise. Stifling a soft groan, he reached over and removed Reformation from its temporary resting place, clipping it onto his belt where it belonged. Maybe, if those rumours about the "Lion's Blade" were true about it's shapeshifting, he could make it take on whatever shape he wanted. That warranted some consideration.

Waffle yawned at the back of the Air Bus before standing slowly and looking at the box he was just leaning against. Naturally, he can't read. The crate was wooden but was secured with metal bands. It looked quite nice as something that could solve his current problem. A fierce itching sensation had appeared on his back. Those metal bands would help. And so they did. Waffle awkwardly turned his body and used the wooden crate labeled "DANGER: EXPLOSIVES" to relieve the irritation on his back. The crate survived but moved two feet or so over the course of the event.

The safety hazards of having a bear next to a crate of explosives in an airplane aside, the flight had been smooth so far. During the night it got a little bumpy when they crossed paths with a swarm of small Nevermores, but they didn't cause much trouble. There were only a few minutes before the team was to land and begin their weekend long mission. Kirkka had just entered the cabin from the front, stopping at the first row of seats and starting to rummage through her already well-organized things. While she did so, she addressed the rest of the travelers.

"Good, you are all up. We just passed another swarm of flying Grimm and they are following us now. Mia does not think they will catch up before we land, but if they do it should be pretty interesting."

A small smile appeared on her face, her satisfaction apparent as she stood up straight and turned to face the others.

"Alright. We are officially here on a Destroy mission, which is simply to clear out the Grimm in the ruins of Petros. Full disclosure. We also have an unofficial mission, which you might already know a little bit about. Supposedly, there is an ancient sword in these ruins that comes from the fairy tale "The Lion". Long story short, it is about a warrior that lived a few hundred years ago and traveled the world saving people and destroying Grimm. The fantastical part about the story is that the weapon he used can change its shape instantly, and it nullifies Aura near it. The first part is neat, but the last part is outright terrifying. If this weapon really does exist, it will be quite dangerous. We are here to collect it and return to the Academy with it in hand so that it can be studied and then hopefully destroyed, but I doubt that will happen. She waved her hand, dismissing the thought before she continued.

"I... apologize if this is all news to you. The mission details were intentionally left vague for security purposes, but I am not going to send you all on a mission without you knowing why you are here. I did not say anything earlier because the knowledge of the weapon is being suppressed, though I am sure you have all heard some of the rumors.

On to the briefing. We will be dropping you four off in a clearing to the north of town. You will need to clear the area out so we can land the Bus. We will be using the Bus as a base camp, that you can use to rest and resupply at. Once the base camp is secure, Mia and I will remain here to run backend while you four head into the town and begin searching. All we know is that the catacombs entrance is in a church. It might be difficult to find as the town is so badly crumbled away that little more than foundation and rubble remains. Once you find the entrance, you are to contact me via scroll. Do not enter the catacombs before contacting me. If this weapon really does exist, we must be extremely careful in its presence."


Her eyes shift toward the stash at the back of the Bus as she points towards it. Waffle does not react. "Due to the unusual circumstances around this mission, we brought along plenty of extra supplies. We are not sure what the catacombs hold, or how large they are. We are not certain about the density of Grimm on the surface, either. Commonly, it is fairly sparse and this place is a regular location for Academy missions as it is easy to deal with."


Kirkka closed her eyes and exhaled. She feels like she is not the best at explaining things. She took a moment to collect her thoughts before reopening her eyes and looking around at the four. "Now then. What questions do you have?" The Bus shook slightly as it listed lazily to the left.

Once the briefing started Fallow walked over and leaned against a wall. He remained mostly quiet simply waiting for anyone else to ask questions and quietly contemplating the mission.

Well, that put a damper on his whole "take it for a spin" idea. Something that cut through Aura like a knife through butter sounded both incredibly dangerous and immensely powerful. And obviously Beacon-level students wouldn't have the clearance to even touch the thing, let alone use it. Still, Graham let a lazy grin adorn his face as he listened. Just because he couldn't use the weapon in question didn't mean he couldn't have his own fun kicking tons of Grimm butt. And boy, was he looking forward to it. The only thing, still, even more intriguing to him...was the bear. Seriously, he couldn't get over it.

Airi was usually one for questions concerning mission parameters.  She like to have everything clearly laid out and accounted for, as contrary to what some might believe about her, she disliked contingencies.  However, here, Kirkka seemed to have laid everything out as clearly as could reasonably be expected.  Still, Airi had a lingering question.  "Do we have an estimate as to roughly how many Grimm there are and what kind of Grimm could be expected?" she asked.  Given the nature of Destroy missions in abandoned and Grimm-infested areas, it was hard for any reliable estimate to be given, beyond the rough mission difficulty rating system employed on the listing boards, but Airi felt compelled to ask the question anyways.

Kirkka answered right away. She actually came here during her student days and recalls it being a breeze to purify the town. Although, one of her teammates did almost all the work... "It should be relatively normal levels for this area. Normally, there is not a very high density of Grimm here. I don't see any reason it would be different. That doesn't mean you should not be on your guard, however. There's nothing out of the ordinary. Creeps are the most common, but there are usually flocks of Nevermores as well. Just baby ones, hopefully."

Her eyes shifted toward the ceiling of the cabin as she recalled her memories and intelligence, trying to see if she was missing anything. Nothing came to her, however.

With the briefing out of the way and the students not having any more specific questions, Kirkka returned to the cockpit for the moment.

Just a few short minutes later, the first rays of sunlight reached across the land below them, illuminating the vast plainlands they were passing over. Their speed had dropped considerably, and before long they were making a large turn. Back on the intercoms, Kirkka spoke up once more. "We're gonna circle the town once at a safe distance. Get a good look of the layout. After that, we'll hit the landing zone to the north."

Slowly, the Air Bus approached the town which had become plainly visible out of the left windows, thanks to the slow banking turn the pilot was making. Petros was an ancient city. It looked something of a battlefield, due to the sheer around of craters and general damage that could be seen. Something to be expected considering students regularly come here for Grimm purification. The town was nearly a mile wide, with the buildings becoming less dense at the outer edges. A wall surrounded the place, with two gates that led northward and southwestward. Plenty of holes were visible in the wall, makings its effectiveness questionable in this day and age. Stone foundations were all that remained of almost every structure, though a few of them managed to maintain a support column, or perhaps a wall or two. The foundations would make for good cover, at least.

It was difficult to get specifics of the layout of the town from this altitude. But one thing that was plainly noticeable was the amount of Grimm. A reasonable estimate put the count to maybe 100 on the ground, then a few swarms of small Nevermores fluttered around. Hard to say how many could be hiding, as well. No sight of the church building either. Each "building" is just too lacking in detail.

As the Bus finished its counterclockwise circle, it slowly to nearly a halt and began a vertical descent. The clearing below you was less of a clearing and more of the beginning to the plains that were just flown over, but there was a few trees and debris on the ground that could provide some cover and protection. As the Bus got closer, Kirkka chimed in once more, in person this time. "Okay, we're here! If you failed your landing strategy, this one will be easier and less surprising." She stood next to the main cabin door near the front, opening it slowly as the roar of the engines overtook most sounds in the cabin. Kirkka stood by waiting for each of the four to jump out.

The distance to the ground was far shorter than the cliff you were likely tossed off of back during your initiation. It was still a fair distance, however, and there were about 12 grimm below you, most of them looking directly up at the Bus. Small fry mostly, except one particularly large looking Ursa.

[OOC: As a reminder, I will be throwing fairly large numbers of Grimm at you. Please feel free to auto hit and instantly kill them. I will note it in my post if you are unable to do so against any particular target.]

Akel took a look around town through the left window, remarking about its destroyed state and also about how some students just liked to use big weapons in place of skill. Grabbing her scythe and covering her ears as the doors opened from her near faunus level hearing. Looking down and spotting the grimm below she thought to herself for a moment of a landing strategy.

Happy with what she had in mind she took a step back and jumped out of the airbus. She let her scythe unfold in midair and having the dust discs turn to fire as she aimed for the Ursa. Swinging her scythe when she was close to the ground to impale the the blade and the Ursa's ugly face to the ground with its face cleanly split in half which also sent fire out towards the other grimm. A few of them running around on fire whilst others moved back from the heat. Akel ripped her scythe out of the ground with the head of the Ursa disappearing into nothingness and decapitated one of the other grimm behind her with a wide swing and bringing her scythe through the chest of a beowolf who tried to get her by lunging over the fire set off by her scythe.

Airi took a moment to survey the scenery of the abandoned settlement as she stood at AirBus's cabin door.  Without any hesitation, she jumped out of the aircraft.  Right before she hit the ground, she used her semblance to create a time remnant and immediately rewound back to it.  Because there was hardly any temporal gap between the time remnant and herself in the present, the resulting shockwave was not very powerful, but it was enough to knock the Grimm where she was going to land away.  Once the space was cleared, Airi did a rolling land to negate the momentum and drew her weapons, ready to fight the Grimm who were by now recovering from being knocked backwards.

Stepping to the side as Airi and Akel dropped from the airbus like fallen angels descending from the heavens, he quickly moved to fill in their gap at the door, looking down on the chaos that ensued. Grinning, Graham selected an unfortunate target, checked that Reformation and Trinity were both secured to his person, and leaned forward until he fell, his body spreading out and making a Y before he went into a forward roll, down the back of an Ursa, before turning, drawing his tachi from its sheath and neatly slicing the Ursa in half, before running the sword back into its sheath. Hooray for heroic landings.

As everyone else on board made a move for the exit Fallow did the same.  Unlike his allies however he reached the edge of the ship and came to a stop before jumping.  From his vantage point he quickly scanned the clearing and found an area none of his teammates had jumped into.  Fallow ran his hand over a page and held it outside the craft. A small glowing orb appeared in his hand and begun floating towards the ground.  He then ran his hand over the book again this time bringing it up past his opposite shoulder.  As he did so he leaped from the craft.  As he fell through the air his 1st spell hit the ground and detonated.  Wiping out a significant amount of Grimm and increasing the size of the clearing somewhat.  Though most importantly for Fallow the blast slowed his fall while his shield prevented it from damaging him as he landed.
