Having little else to say Alizarin moved to find a way to steady himself as he waited for liftoff. Eventually opting to grab hold of one of the supports holding up the upper level.

"Of course." Infrared turns and complies before resuming her course of finding firing spots and browsing the ship while she's at it.

Akel hugged her weapon, having already sat down and not really feeling the whole relocate because of your weapon deal. Her weapon wouldn't malfunction on her, at least she hoped it wouldn't. "Ready when you are captain."

(OOC: Thanks for your patience with all the scene-setting and adventure prep, all. We're gonna go ahead and jump into the start of the action now. ;D )


Hearing that everyone was ready, Cordell looked around at her passengers and flashed each a smile. "I promise, ye won't regret this. It's gonna be one hellova trip!" She turned and raced towards a metal ladder, leading up to the second level. "I'm off to th' bridge t' get us on course -- if'n ye need anythin' just call out fer Delahaye."

With that, the pirate made her exit the same way she came in. A few minutes later there was a distinct shift as the disguised Red Corsair lifted off, leaving the landing pad and docking facility behind. The intercom crackled to life once again. "Attention passengers, this be yer captain speakin'. Our flight time today be just shy o' one hour. Once we reach cruisin' altitude ye'll be free t' walk about, at which point we'll break open some provisions t' ensure nobody be treasure huntin' on an empty stomach. Strap in or hang on, an' thanks fer flyin' th' piratical skies t'day!"

No sooner did the intercom cut out than the force of the ship in flight could be felt. Roughly five minutes after takeoff, when the ship was above open waters, that force briefly doubled as the fake hull around the ship was cut loose and left to splash down into the ocean. From there the ride became much smoother as the airship rose to a comfortable elevation and, at a prompting from Delahaye, it was safe to walk about.

True to her word Cordell returned shortly thereafter, cracking open a refrigerated storage crate containing a decent supply of various sandwiches and drinks; what's more, to help "set the mood", a bottle of the captain's rum was popped open and made available to those so inclined. With a metal tumbler in one hand Cordell flipped on the holo-map again, giving the group their first look at the destination.


"Based on what we've learned, th' hideout is supposed t' be around here." She pointed to a rough area on the main island encompassing the western face of a small mountain. "I got together all th' info I could on th' place, but it ain't much. Th' islands aren't safe or valuable enough t' merit th' investment it'd take t' clear 'em so everythin' we know comes from flyovers -- which I did m'self t' get this map together -- an' some fishin' villages t' th' north an' west. Grimm are spread out an' territorial, both in th' water an' up on shore. No idea why they like th' place so much, as people don't really visit, but from what I saw th' local ones ain't nothin' too serious: Breachers on th' beaches an' coves, Creeps inland, an' juvenile Nevermore roostin' in trees and whatnot. Shouldn't be a serious concern, as we'll have th' big guns o' me ship t' help clear 'em from our landin' an' cover us up 'till we find th' entrance."

"Past that, no idea."
She took a long draught of rum from her cup. "Everythin' suggests th' hideout be underground, though I've no blessed idea how th' Howling Storm put down there. No cave entrances I could find looked big enough t' fly an ol' airship through, though could be th' entrance they used collapsed at some point. It has been two hundred years an' all. I've got gear in case there's cause t' dig... though, honestly, I really hope it won't come t' that."

It wasn't long after that when Delahaye notified them that the ship was nearing the Anima coastline -- Cordell returned to the cockpit at this point to "ensure their safe arrival", which sounded rather like evading detection by Mistral's coastal watch. The wait for arrival was short but tense; every time the ship banked or shifted Quisling could be heard to whimper nervously from his seat and shuffle through his notes, as though they were somehow going to protect him. After the long anxious minutes passed Delahaye's voice could be heard over the speaker system. "Attention passengers: we have reached our destination. The captain requests that you be ready to disembark." There was a faint sound from the ship's internals suddenly, an electric-sounding thrum as quick as a heartbeat. "There are Grimm on the beach -- on-board weapons are clearing them now. However, expect minor resistance to remain upon arrival."

At the far end of the cargo bay, the main doors slid open, revealing sand and surf outside. The ship was in motion, hovering maybe thirty feet above the shallows and swinging to one side, its rapid-fire energy weapons strafing the beach in a cacophony of blue flashes and plumes of sand. The bodies of cut down Grimm could be seen in the distance ahead while more trickled out from a treeline of tall palms and woody scrubs. The upper cargo bay doors opened and Cordell, with a cutlass in one hand and a pair of pistols strapped at her waist, vaulted eagerly over the guardrail to rejoin the group.

"Right then, here we go! Should be less than a hundred feet from beach t' cave, an' these Grimm bastards are droppin' like flies. Del will drop us what we need once we find th' entrance, but fer now we flush out trouble so it can't stalk us from th' underbrush. Everybody ready?"

As the ship begun moving around Alizarin found himself regretting his choice to hang on to a support as he dug his claws into it in a failing attempt to keep his grip. When the forced doubled a scraping noise could be heard as Alizarin lost his hold and fell onto the floor with a metallic thud. When the ride smoothed out he hauled himself to his feet and went to examine the support and saw that his claws had left deep scratches in the metal. "Oh shit." A resigned sigh came from Alizarin as he looked at the damage he had done. "I suspect I'm going to be paying for that later."

A few minutes later Cordell came out along with food and rum which allowed Rust to forget about his mistake for a while as he went straight to eating and drinking a bit while vaguely paying attention to the plan. He was confident he could remember the broad strokes if nothing else and rather occupied himself with his food and the occasional half-nervous and half for his own benefit glance at Cordell.

Eventually the cargo bay door opened and Cordell re-emerged seemingly very excited. A sentiment mirrored in Alizarin's own crazed smile.
"Right then, here we go! Should be less than a hundred feet from beach t' cave, an' these Grimm bastards are droppin' like flies. Del will drop us what we need once we find th' entrance, but fer now we flush out trouble so it can't stalk us from th' underbrush. Everybody ready?"
Alizarin's initial response was a laugh. "Damn right I am. Just try to fucking stop me!" With that vote of confidence Alizarin strapped on Onyx Ripper and stood at the edge with his arms wide before jumping backwards into the open air and plummeting towards the sand back-flipping slowly as he did so.a few meters before he reached the ground he straightened out into a position to land and used his semblance to create a cushion of air the place him on the ground without hurting him to much. It did however have the unfortunate side-effect of spraying sand everywhere. Looking as if he had hit with the force of a hand grenade. Hopefully there was no one next to him at the time. With very little pause to think about it Alizarin began rushing forward to start taking out Grimm with claws fully extended and ready to go.

As Solar listened to Cordell from the engine room as she stuck her face on a nearby window, watching the scenery change as the ship started to take off. 'I always love this part' Solar watched with awe as the ship ascended higher and higher. Even though she knew the force from the takeoff was coming she remained fixed on the window wanting to watch as long as possible as there was nothing to hold on to nearby. Sure enough the force of the takeoff knocks Solar off her feet and bangs her head into a nearby pipe "Ow! Can never get used to that..." she says out loud as she massages the sore spot on her head. Learning her lesson Solar holds onto the various pipes and metal that lined the walls of the engine room.

As soon Solar felt the force riding on her calm down and a call from Delahaye prompting it was safe to walk about. Solar dashed off to the room where the others were and helped herself to her much wanted grub. "Food finally!" She exclaimed as she gorged herself on whatever she could get her hands on stuffing her face, no manners or etiquette what so ever. As she was eating she got a look around at the members that were hired for the mission they were to be together on. 'Huh 3 faunus including me' she thought thinking Akeldama (who she was sitting next to), wasn't a faunus. " Hri! Yer ave rully rong 'air! Wha' ar' yu 'earing on yur 'ead?" Solar asked Akel about her headphones with a mouth full of food making idle chit chat as the hour to their destination went by. As she talked she still wore an eye patch over one eye, whether she forgot it was there or intentional only she knew.

The time went by and Solar was finally eager and ready to jump off the ship the second the doors opened. Though the weapons on the ship were still raining lasers of energy down on the Grimm, Solar jumps down without waiting. "Woohoo!" She cries out as she falls. With a glow from her body she charges an attack aimed for the sand underneath her, the moment she reaches the sand she swings her weapon down making an explosion of sand that breaks her fall. "Woo! Time for a treasure hunt!" She cries out, ready to take anything down that stood in her way.

Akel kept her seating, not liking the idea of an airship without proper seating equipment. So she wrapped one arm around a large strap which kept the crate in place and moved her arm behind her head to prevent any jolting into said crate. Her idea proved to be very effective as she didn't really move much. The unpleasent sound of metal being ripped didn't register with her, the headphones blocking that particular sound by a preset done by herself.

The speaker letting her know that it was safe to get up, walk and get food was a relief. Unwrapping her arm from the strap and hoping up, albeit releasing that she did find her former seating  to not be so bad.

Akel grabbed a few pieces of food, not wanting to stain her clothes with food or waste any by dropping any on the ground. She took a seat back down where she previously was and started eating one of the sandwhiches: ham, cheese and strangely enough thin apple slices.

"My hearing is sensitive, without these I would be confined to a specially desifned room for my entire life". Continuing idle chat with her new friend along the journey with occassinally going back to the crate to grab a smaller amount of food each time.

The sound of weapons firing brought her attention, standing up and patting her clothing to get rid of any loose pieces of food that might of remained. Satisfied she stood at the main cargo doors and did a few basic streches as she saw Alizarin and Solar jump down ahead of her. "Make sure to limber up". in a joking fashion as they were already out of ear range with the sounds of the ships guns destroying the grimm on the beach.

Her streches done she unfolded her scythe and rested the handle on her shoulder. Taking a few steps back to get a running launch she boosted, the water receeding and her boots impacting the wet sand. She was a lot less battle crazed then her teammates and let herself take her time to scout out potential opponents as she reached the dry sand, putting the scythe in both hands she smiled and slashed a grimm that approached her down its centre.

Infrared planted her footing, shifted her center of gravity and leaned on a wall to avoid tumbling in the initial ascension, then started to walk around, looking out of the window and into the engine room to appreciate the intricate machinery, and on the deck from the terminals to find what she's supposed to do, finding firing spots. Although that proved tobe meaningless for now as the weapons on deck cleaned out the Grimm around their landing spot as should be expected.
Getting back to the cargo bay she wondered how to get her carts of rockets down there. Oh right. I've always wanted to try that.
Infrared walked down after pushing her cart slightly in a attempt to time her landing just before her cart's. She bent her leg a little in a landing stance and put one hand on her cart. At the moment she touched the ground she activated her semblance twice to both launch herself and her cart sideways along the beach. After it finally stops having flung a good 20 meters or so she pushes back her cart to meet up with the rest of the party.

Cordell watched with undisguised excitement as each of the other adventurers deployed, hitting the sands below and bringing a swift end to any Grimm unlucky enough to reach them. Turning to Quisling -- who was still seated and clutching his notes -- she couldn't help but toss off a barbed compliment. "Quite a crew ye found, Quizy! Join us fer a bit'ova tussle?"

The historian looked mildly terrified, cringing just a bit at the sounds of battle below. "I-i-if it's all the same, miss Cordell, I t-t-think I'll remain here until you've reached the entrance."

The young pirate shrugged her shoulders. "Thought ye might say so. Oh well. Del, keep an eye on our resident bookworm -- I'mma go bloody me blade."

With that, Cordell strode to the very edge of the doorway and aimed her cutlass, flicking switches on the handle as she went. The hiss of compressed air being released accompanied the blade flying from its socket, skimming just below the underside of the ship's hull until a jolt of electromagnetic force locked it in place. Drawing one pistol in her free hand Cordell swung out across the gap, taking aim and firing at Breachers and the occasional Creep as she found targets until she hit the nadir of her swing -- releasing the blade from the hull, she pulled herself into a flip and landed somewhat ahead of the others. Swinging the tether line whip-like, the pirate managed to embed her blade into the haunch of a Creeper that had dug under the killzone of the Red Corsair's guns, pulling the monster towards her and finishing it off with a point-blank double-shot.

"Right, then!" Cordell turned to the others, all grins and eagerness. "Let's mop this lot up, eh? Show me what you've got!"

Having relocated back to under the ship Infrared called on the top of her lungs. "Anyone need artillery support?"
While waiting for any of them to call back Infrared fired upon a few spots which she heard Grimm movements. She fires, the air roars and earth was spread. A round lands, pieces of creeps and nevermores turning into black smoke files into the air. Another explodes, another patch of dead Grimm smoking rises. Infrared keeps this up, changing target as she's being called. Pushing forward bit by bit the black-dressed rabbit faunus stopped on the edge of the forest waiting for instruction to advance.
(OOC:Meanwhile, feel free to replace the background music with the piano version of Credens Justitiam, by Animenz. Sorry for overriding your music Riven :P)
Artillery positions sure are nice. Just listen to the coordinates, load, aim, fire, repeat until otherwise, all while under the protection of infantries. Although this feels wrong and would probably warrant a tongue lashing from her officers.
Here's hoping I never have to do this to regular troops... I don't even want to imagine this replaced by people screaming and blood spilling.
(OOC: The usual accompanying music for artillery bombardment, 1812 overture, turns out to be a bit slow escalating for me. I just happens to be hearing that and decided this version of Credens Justitiam would be a good choice as I'm writing.)

In a playful pirate voice of a poor imitation of Cordell's Solar goes "Arrgh! These landlubbers be after me loot! Hehe" she ends with a mischievous giggle. The weapon on her back unfolds as she grips her crimson axe with two hands. She swings the weapon in wide arcs cleaving any Grimm in halves, utilizing it's weight to swing her own body with bone shattering kicks. "Woah!" She had to leap out of the way as she accidentally found herself too close to one of Infrared's artillery rounds. "Oh so that's what artillery is" she said to as her question she wondered herself when Infrared called it out.

Akel rushed the grimm that headed towards her, scythe in hand she opened up eith using a spin to slash a grimm by the legs to let it fall into the sand and receive the business end of her scythe in the side of its head. Several more followed through and she applied the same technique, changing her angle of attack to accomadate the direction that the grimm came from. All in all she took the creeps down without and trouble and any others that came towards her got hit by supporting fire from the ship.

Alizarin used his semblance to empower a mostly forward facing jump once again spraying sand as he did so. He flew straight past Cordell with a hand and claw outstretched. After he hurtled past Cordell he reached a creep and flipped over it digging his claws in underneath it's mask as he did so.Upon landing he pulled upwards and tore the "mask" clean off the Grimm. His maniacal laughter drowned out by the creep screaming before it dissolved into ash. With barely a pause he turned and singled out the next closest Grimm. A breacher. with a crooking of his finger the Grimm suddenly flew uncontrollably at him only to find the claws of his other hand embedded in it's center. Alizarin tore across the Grimm's midsection positioning his arm across it's body before firing off Onyx Ripper. Sending spikes through the breacher and into parts of various Grimm that happened to be in their path.

(OOC: No need to worry about music "overrides" -- think of what I post as just a suggestion, but if you find music that goes better with your post or the current scene feel free to post it up! Can never have too much awesome music, after all.)


In the midst of the battle Cordell called out a handful of targets to Infrared and cut down what Grimm she could, but the group overall was far outpacing her with their kills. After the first few minutes she literally just had the luxury to stand back and watch for the most part, and she liked what she saw. Infrared was just as deadly with that rocket launcher as one would expect, plus cool and composed in the heat of things. The placement of her shots was precise, deliberate -- no wasted ammo from this one. Solar's general enthusiasm carried into battle just like it seemed to with everything else, and she wasn't too shabby with that huge battleaxe of hers either. Akeldama was making it clear that any Grimm dumb or unlucky enough to get close were already dead, her precision blade work rendering one Creep after another into dissolving legless stumps. And Alizarin... well, the way he fought was enough to put a twinge of fear into the hearts of even his allies. He was a massacre on legs. Cordell wasn't sure whether to be worried by that or to get the man a drink as tribute to his sheer enthusiasm. Both, actually, seemed like a smart way to go. Definitely both.

Needless to say, it didn't take long before the beach was clear of threats. Cordell let out a long whistle, followed by a wide grin. "Well, blow me down if'n you lot aren't a force t' reckon with. Guess ol' Quizy's got an eye fer talent. Right, this way t' th' entrance cave."

The young pirate led them on a brief trek through the brush, hacking clear a path as she went. It wasn't more than a few minutes before they came to a gaping maw in the rising mountainside. The cave entrance was almost forty feet wide and opened onto a small inland lagoon -- even without going in it was clear that the water was less than a foot deep in most areas, fed into and out of by narrow underwater tunnels too small for a person to pass through. The back of the cave was mostly shrouded in darkness, though the Faunus among the group would likely see clearly that there didn't seem to be any other openings -- the back of the cave was solid stone, run smooth by water dripping down from the stalactites on the ceiling.

"Del, supply drop if'n ye please."

The shadow of the Red Corsair -- now in its true form after abandoning the fake hull -- fell over the group. From below the nose of the ship a hatch opened and a large metal box descended on a steel line. Quisling, now wearing a dark gray hard hat and knee pads, stood atop the box and clutched the line as he descended, finally hopping off with a relieved sigh upon touchdown. Cordell cracked open the case, pulling a rugged-looking backpack from the contents.

"Right, grab a pack an' take what ye think ye can best use. If our research be true th' entrance t' th' pirate hideout be just on th' other side'a that cave." She cracked an industrial-grade glow stick and clipped the radiant rod like a pendant over her cravat, then pointed to a few of the other items in the crate. "We've got a thermal drill an' mining charges in case we need t' get through rock, an' ten pneumatic support struts t' keep any low cave ceilings from collapsin' on us when we use 'em. Shouldn't come t' that, but it has been 200 years. Th' entrance is supposedly hidden in this here cave -- if so, I should be able t' find it. Let's gear up first, just t' be sure."

As the last Grimm fell Alizarin returned to the Grimm with a wide grin. "Well that was bloody good fun wasn't it?" Alizarin had to admit that he was really enjoying the piratical talk of a couple of his comrades. Having now adopted a minor pirate accent himself as he spoke.

As the group walked along Alizarin continued looking around at the environment. "Definitely one of the prettier places to go for a job. Corporate buildings covered in blood do get boring after a while."

As the supplies. And the nerd came down from the sky Alizarin tried and failed to stifle a laugh at the way the man looked. Especially with how afraid the poor guy was. Before he could go and either torment or comfort the man depending on perspective he was distracted by the mention of supplies. He reached into the crate and immediately pulled out the thermal drill. "Nice. I bet I could do some damage with this." before he pointed it in the general direction of Infrared and activated it for a second letting the drillbit spin. "Bet it'd work just as well on Grimm and people as it's designed to on rock."
