[4/4 Beacon Students] The Lion's Blade

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. The very next day, a Friday...

You head up to one of several display boards throughout the room. It is Friday, and students have the option to take on missions during certain weekends for practice and bonus credits in certain classes. The missions required you go to with three other students, and were rated in difficulty by stars on the board. First years could only accept one and two-star missions, with each year gaining one extra star. As such, 4th-year students can take up any missions since five stars is the maximum. These missions were ranked based on the fact that they are available exclusively to students, and are intended to be available for practice so the difficulty is often low.

Only one two-star mission was left. Explode a whole bunch of Grimm in some place called Petros. A quick search on your scroll reveals that Petros is an old town, now abandoned, that sits on atop a cliffside overlooking the eastern oceans. It's a fair bit away from Vale, which could mean it's an extended mission. Sometimes missions take longer than a weekend and, as long as the instructor that's with you agrees, you can be permitted to stay longer. Hard to say without being there though. It's hard to just kill grimm day after day, all day. Regardless, you decide to sign up. You know you need three others, so you should find some like-minded individuals and get together with them.

From the details of the mission, you notice the transport is leaving tonight, at 6 pm. An overnight trip since its so far. Return is scheduled for Sunday at 10 am, meaning you'll have about two full days to crush a whole ton of Grimm.





Available Slots: 4

This mission has four slots for four students. You do not have to be on a team. You may choose you who signup with, but I am gonna do it as first come first serve.

I am leaving it open to you to decide how much your character knows about the story. It's semi-popular folklore in the same manner as say, The Odyssey by Homer is. If you can name the main character in that, your character has at least heard of The Lion's Blade story. In the same vein, up to you on how much your character has heard about the rumors of people going insane and the sword being found. They are fairly rare but growing.

I'm going for a bit of a smash and grab here. Expect explosions and heroics and tons of exploding grimm. Thread should be fun and easy to write and fast paced.
