It took Toast a bit to realize Sam was addressing him when he made his comment, but by the time the faunus realized the huntsman was using his real name, he was already in the mine.  Oh well.

In the meantime, Toast took stock of the surroundings now that there was an adequate source of light, and the environment surprised him slightly.  Whoever built these mines knew what they were doing.  Or, at least, it looked like they knew what they were doing.  Everything looked square and uniform, which made it seem like there was a degree of architectural planning involved.  The only real sign of mine’s abandonment is the faltering lighting system. 

Normally, Toast wouldn’t really think too much on any of this as the group wandered through the tunnel, but the jarring difference between what seemed to be the official, if abandoned, portion of the mine and the one off-shoot that lacked the support structure and clean-cut pathways of the rest was just too hard to miss.  Between that and the sounds of work and machinery, the cat faunus’s curiosity was piqued, and Toast started meandering down the tunnel without really waiting for the rest of the group’s opinion or comment.

He’s not being entirely lackadaisical, of course.  He is on a mission and treating it at least somewhat seriously…for him, at least.  He sticks close to the walls, using his acrobatic skill to keep light on his feet and stealthy and focusing on his aura’s natural “danger sense” to sniff out anything dangerous before it bites him in the ass.

1v1 Matches / Re: First Year 1v1 bracket- Round 2: Ayaka Miyamoto vs. Catalina Glenn

This one is not going to be easy to get out of. If she won't allow some distance, then just move the other way and get closer: the closer they are the more each bit of movement is worth. There's another thing he wishes to address with closing in, which is made obvious by the fact that he is wrapping her wires on her hands.

She asked an important question, Cat has almost forgotten about that. What did he fight for? He fought for equality, that people to be treated similarly and viewed only by their accomplishments and not by anything else, most relevantly not by race, sex or age. And if we're being witty, that includes fighting style as well. Or not, since fighting style has a great impact on your build and the proficiency of different attributes that are all important when determining the skills of a huntsman(-in-training). Point is, it doesn't make a world of difference to him whether she respected him with what he had shown. He'll just get to him, and then his more private reason will start to matter. He doesn't plan on telling that to Ayaka though. And he would've loved to tell her all about equality but for now, "I'll answer once I dodge that charged hit of yours."

Combat stats:
Aura: 62.88(repeating)%
Ammo for Take That!: 15/20 shots of piercing rounds loaded/1 magazine of piercing rounds/1 magazine of explosive rounds/5 shocking rounds/5 heating rounds/5 freezing round
Dust: 0% Fire/100% Earth/25% Lightning/0% Ice
Semblance: 2200 cm^3

"Yeah. that'll fucking happen." Cerulean muttered under his breath with a smile at the comment about calling for backup before casually pocketing his scroll.
"Names Cerulean Steel." he responded to the comment from their driver. Under the asumption the scouting effort had been done and relayed he would relay his plan.
"shouldn't that be obvious? we go and help them. we're huntsmen aren't we? Also if we're lucky they could be locals and we can earn some trust."

(That's a really neat way to do it, DEX, kudos to you)

Nathan was actually kinda enjoying this. Observing the game, that is. It also allowed him to glean some tidbits of info from the players' actions, reactions and expressions. Though, to be honest, Kisha's proposition/decision did crank up the fun factor a fair bit. The change that overcame Izzy's posture (facial featuers being obscured, minus the eyes) didn't leave much to Nathan's imagination and he almost burst out laughing at the sight.

Mentally, that is. In the real world, a subtle smile barely flashed across his face.

1v1 Matches / Re: Third Year 1v1 bracket- Round 1: Rufus Chocla vs. Jima Purpora
« Last post by Walter on January 15, 2019, 08:08:04 AM »
'Here it comes!' Rufus would have time to think before Jima's barrage of attacks came his way. He noticed her eyes being closed, but didn't assume that meant she would miss or not spot his own movements - she wasn't a rookie by any means. As such, he could only power through and hope for the best.

Rufus returned her charge, managing to side-step the first swing but taking the brunt of the second. Before the third could land - though it did - he threw a punch aimed at her gut. He was hoping to knock the air out of her and give himself some window of opportunity -  opportunity to do enough damage to put them back on even ground.

(Gut punch: 5%, hoping to stun)

Aura: 20%

”Gotta try harder than that.” Tieren snorted derisively, spinning counterclockwise to bring the edge of his blade slicing horizontally across the Creep’s body and sending the two decapitated parts flying across the arena. More growls surrounding him brought Tieren back to his senses, causing him to look up and take in the number of Creeps encircling the party, in addition to the uninvited tail that thought it was a good idea to join in.

Even though 11 of the things might have been a little too much for one person to handle, Tieren believed that the extra fire support from their team medic, as well as Kisha joining the fray would more than even the odds. ”Come on then, you pack of pansies! Scared of a single person?” He shouted, stomping the ground with his feet to entice a few of the Creeps to “come get some”.

Tieren’s Stats:
  ● Aura: [██████████] 100%
  ● Semblance: 0% active [0% DMG reduction]

Prism turns back to her notes, twiddling with her pen for a moment before it begins to write down Ms. Nahualli’s latest explanation. This technique only had a 85% success rate - it’ll kiss you by the first phase if you dared try it, and even then if it decides to be merciful, you’ll be permanently crippled for life. That’s not to mention that Prism might not even be possible of accomplishing it, given that creating and controlling large gusts of wind isn’t something that can be done with a person’s aura normally.

Prism’s pen stops for a moment as she bites her lip, a rare frown etching itself into her face. This wasn’t something worth learning if it weakened her, or weakened her semblance - she was perfectly aware that she couldn’t physically stand up to a good portion of the academy, and sometimes the only thing that kept her on her feet was an oversized aura and overpowering semblance, so-

When had that ever stopped?

Her mind made up about approaching Ms. Nahualli after class was over to evaluate her candidacy, Prism resumes her rapid chicken-scratch notetaking. Her hand flies into the air as per the norm at the end of the TA’s monologue, not waiting to get called on to ask her question. “Ms. Nahualli, if it’s so dangerous, why did you personally decide it was worth learning?” She asks, tilting her head to the side slightly.

Kin nodded at Lisa's words, grinning as he glanced at his own cards. Two Kings and a ten? He could work with this.

Although the pilot chuckled slightly Sam’s reaction mirrored much of Camelia’s in bewildered annoyance although the experienced huntsman managed to hide it reasonably well. ’There will likely be a little more to it than that Wabul but hopefully for all our sakes I hope the end result is the same. We need Falcon Haven secure if we are going to have a solid base here. But if there aren’t any questions I’ll leave you all to it, I have other debriefs that I have run so I wish you all the best of luck.’ Sam Copper remarked before terminating their call. The bullhead quickly flew away, a little higher than before with it’s lighter load making the ride look a lot smoother.

Illuminated by Ladybug’s headlights it was clear that despite these shafts hadn’t been in use for a while and the lights were playing up they were well made. Cut almost completely square with regular wooden supports showing little or no signs of rot or decay. Slowly going further and further up the shaft curved around itself until it would eventually reach Falcon Haven. It would make dragging Ladybug around difficult unless Revya rode it which would cause problems with noise and additional flammable materials.

The group started to find a fair few offshoots to different parts of the mining system. All of them carved out in the same high quality in craftsmanship and regular breaks to ensure the stability of the entire system. All of them except for one. Harshly carved out with a drill made this tunnel more circular than square and there was a complete absence of any wooden supports. More worryingly there was the sound of mining and heavy machinery coming from further down the tunnel.

If the impromptu group of hunters in training decides to check out this noise it wouldn’t take long before they could hear voices intermingled with all the sounds of industry. Luckily with all the excess noise going around, it would only require a moderate amount of stealth to sneak up on them and get within a reasonable distance of the group. There looked like there were two miners working heavy machinery and other four loading up mining carts The workers were all singing a song and working in time to the beat of the words. It was well timed which suggested this being a regular activity. If the group decided that they had to at least check in with Falcon Watch and begin their mission as soon as possible before diverting their attention there was an elevator a fair distance along the main mining shaft. It would bring the group to Falcon Watch quickly although from the look of it the noise could easily be heard over the mining machines.

”You know I’m always more than happy to listen to your ramblings, Prism!” Jocelyn laughed, still high off the adrenaline from watching the match - though if this was what she felt, Prism must have the equivalent of ten gallons of caffeine from winning her match. As they began the trek to the food court through the pristine white hallways filled with the bustle and chatter of the numerous other people, her excitement slowly began to fade to her more calm, usual self, and she began to observe her surroundings instead of just having 100% of her focus on Prism. Plenty of booths selling tasty snacks, the odd souvenir shop, smoking rooms, even a indoor heated pool. If they didn’t have a place to be, Jocelyn would gladly take a dip and relax.

”Oh, here we are.” Situated in one of the numerous large branches, even the vast food court couldn’t house the crowds of spectators eager to grab a bite before the next match, and the place was crowded. Lining the edges, stores offered nearly every single cuisine Remnant had to offer, with Atlesian food taking a small but well-populated corner of the hall. With so many people stuffed into one space, Jocelyn just couldn’t find her brother.

<I need healing> Where are you

<Overprotective> look up

She did just that and found that the crowd had cleared a small path, which - sure enough - led to a table where Setsuna sat, waving his arm and beckoning them over. "Hey sis, and good to see you again Prism! Congratulations on the wins so far!”
