Calen waves his hand across his face dismissively. ‘Don’t worry Master Setsuna, I’ll keep proving cakes if you let me huddle under that shield when times get rough.’ A smile tells Calen is mostly joking and after a moment looking around to take in his surroundings Calen continued. ‘It seems we’ve been following game trails rather than the prescribed path. Oh well the scenic route has its advantages.’

Game trail might have been a bit generous, the undergrowth had mostly reclaimed and trees were following quickly after forcing Calen to use minute amounts of his semblance to correct himself so he can maintain his graceful gait. ‘So I take it you are new to the Forever Fall? It’s as good as any a place to get lost in. Not only is it beautiful but it’s reasonably easy to navigate if you know what to look for.’ Picking up a rotting log Calen spins it round to show moss is only growing on one side. ‘The sap here does funny things so moss only takes up on dead wood and on the antisunward side. Gives you a basis of direction even at night or with cloud cover. That, combined with recognising slopes in the landscape generally mean there is a river downhill helps you roughly guesstimate your position. Up most streams you’ve got Mount Glen or at least the surrounding mountain range and downstream you have the sea or one of the few lakes which are still in the same direction.’

Pausing for a moment to take a closer look at the claw markings on the trees Calen looked back at his teammate. 'Enough wannabe survivor tell me about yourself, there looks like there is a clearing ahead so we probably don't have far.

Anna almost instantly became flustered by her newly-found comrade. Bowing her head down and letting her hair get in front of her face, she responded to him with a "...Y-Yeah." while , after a burst of her semblance to know where to go, shook the outstretched hand in a very, very soft and shy fashion. Dammit.

She answered Taro's second - wait, no, third - question with "W-We're supposed to rendezvous here with two others, th-then proceed to some ruins and retrieve whatever's worth it."

EDIT: (Gonna wait one day to post again after King to give Sesh the time to do shit if he so desires.)

Glancing at his new teammate striding along beside him, Setsuna commented: "Well, you seem to know worlds more than me on this subject. Care to elaborate on where you learned this..." He trailed off as he noticed Calen's sudden shift in mood, and not toward the good side either. "W-Well, maybe not..." he stuttered, taken aback by the look Calen shot his way. "What's with him all of a sudden? Probably shouldn't dive straight into someone's backstory, I guess." He thought.

Trying to find a topic to divert the sudden awkwardness, Setsuna pointed at the clearing ahead of them, partially covered by the red foliage that was everywhere in the forest. "I guess that's our stop. Who were the other two again? Anna Fall and Taro Espada? Are they there already?"

Brushing the dense leaves aside, Setsuna cautiously emerged from the bushes, Calen following suit, to see what looked like a small setup of rocks, reminding him of the "Knights of the Round Table" of old, hosting King Arthur and his legendary knights, except there were only two people there. One boy, one girl. They seemed to know each other already, given that they were shaking hands.

"Anna Fall and Taro Espada, I assume?" He called by way of greeting.

"W-We're supposed to rendezvous here with two others, th-then proceed to some ruins and retrieve whatever's worth it."

"Aaaah...so, it's an adventure then?" Taro asked beaming. Though, he noticed that his energy was making Anna visibly uncomfortable. 'Gonna have to tone it down a bit from here on out, I guess.' he thought. Some rustling in the bushes snapped his attention away from his thoughts. Taro turned to see two others emerging from the treeline and entering the clearing.
"Anna Fall and Taro Espada, I assume?"
Taro gave a smile and a nod.
"You assumed right. So, I guess you guys must be Calen and Setsuna?" he asked, slightly shocked that it was two males. 'So Setsuna is a guys name, hm?' he thought, getting a better look at his two teammates.

Stupid, stupid, stupid Calen. Calen thought to himself using his foraging as an excuse to get some distance between Setsuna and himself. First you go on and on for half an hour then you shut down at what should be an expected response. Calen was clearly angry but more at himself than his new team mate. Sleep is what I need, a few nights off. Losing control like this can't continue. As Calen continued to mentally berate himself he was managing to calm down and by the time they got eyes on Anna and Taro he was back in control.

Gesturing to himself when Taro said Calen and Setsuna when he said Setsuna, Calen walked over. 'Miss Fall and Master Taro, it's a pleasure finally meet the entire team.' Speaking cheerfully and offering his hand to both of his team mates. 'So exploring ruins, do we want to head out now or rest and eat before setting out?'

Calen was taking particular notice of Anna's chains which stood out a fair bit compared to the blades of everyone else present. Smiling as he continued his little guessing game hoping to improve his average.

(A'ight, seems Sesh isn't gonna be able to DM for us. He says he's sorry. :P )

Anna had thankfully heard the new duo's footsteps from far away, which prevented yet another tiny, surprised scream. However, when Taro took the initiative of answering them, she couldn't help but feel somewhat relieved. Oh good, that's that much less to deal with today.

When Calen came up to them and - somewhat formally - greeted them, Anna flashed her semblance's second stage to 1) get a look at her new comrades 2) know where to put her hand to shake another, if neessary - which, it turned out, was. She exchanged a light handshake with Calen, accompanied by an appropriately small "L-Likewise." Thank goodness, it was getting easier to breathe around here. The extra people finally allowed her to melt back into the background a bit.

At the guy's question, she answered a noncommittal "I'm fine with anything.", her voice slightly more relaxed than it had recently been.

"Same here," Setsuna responded. He was still feeling bad for upsetting Calen just a while ago, but that feeling had largely dissipated when he got to meet the rest of his team.

Taking the chance to observe the other duo while they were talking to Calen, Anna caught Setsuna's eye first, being the only girl on the team. Strangely, she hadn't opened her eyes once since he first met her, and those chains on her arms were especially interesting. Maybe her weapon of choice?

Taro, on the other hand seemed to be much more open and cheerful, putting Setsuna at relative ease. The guy seemed to have an abundance of energy, judging by his expression, albeit a tiny bit shocked. Another swordsman? Looks like Anna's the odd one out in more than one way.

"Umm..." Setsuna hesitated. "Since we're all here, in case I accidentally offend anyone," he looked apologetically at Calen, "maybe it might be for the better if we got a few things clear? Like, uh, what not to talk about?" he stammered in a small voice. Dammit, Setsuna! One moment you offend Calen, next you're making a fool of yourself!

"Hmm..." Taro thought, rubbing his chin in thought. "No, not really. Well, there is one thing I suppose. If any-one here ever talks about dying, I'll be pissed." He said smiling, giving his teammates another look over. Having three swordsman could actually end up being pretty helpful as it would be easy for them to all train each other and mentor one another in certain techniques or styles. Taro typically just used a standard two handed style, so he was eager to see what type of stances and attacks his team could bring.

Tightening the straps on his pack so it doesn’t jostle around in a fight Calen looks up at his new team and remarked ‘Well I suppose that decides it, we're heading off now. Calen's tone remained cheerful but his facial expression darkened as no one really answered him. 'It doesn't look like we've got many long range attacks so I'll take point.' Calen continued as he did his last minute tests, extending and collapsing his glavie and running his hand against his knife harness before setting out.

(OOC: Do students have another form of communication than scrolls during missions like Walkie-talkies or whatever? If so Calen gets everyone to exchange that form of contact information rather than scroll numbers)

Quickly calling out his scroll number Calen explains. 'Just in case we get separated or if we need to be.' Calen looks at Setsuna with a slightly puzzled look, hesitating to respond as he considers ignoring the question entirely. 'Lets just keep ourselves in the present please Master Setsuna but other than that I'm an open book.' Pausing again to think and a slight chuckle at Taro's response before continuing. 'But it would be a good idea to get a rough idea of what people can do against the Grimm which are no doubt waiting in front of us. My semblance makes me very agile so perhaps I can try to hold most of their attention while you all flank around? Or attack from unexpected angles if someone else has their focus.

Well, not per se. Unless somebody brings earpieces with them, there's only scrolls.

Also, did anybody else notice it? How Calen just acted like the leader out of nowhere? I'm not saying that's bad, on the contrary. Rather, I'm saying that it may be because Calen should be the leader. Although I agree his persona might be slightly... shitty in some regards, the important thing is that there is currently a conflict between the pre-planned plot (Setsuna = leader) and the more reliable, organically-developed one.

So if everyone/a majority is alright with it, I'll post a change notice in the Team List.

Anna pretty much listened to her companions until Calen talked about a lack of long-range attacks, prompting Anna to say "I-I can mid-range...", taking a singular knife out of her sash and holding it in front of herself for a few seconds before putting it back where it came from.

When Calen called out his scroll number, she quickly took out her scroll, wrote it down and sent a local notice - a useful function tucked so far down, few knew about it. The notice itself was empty, but the sender information was there anyway. As for what not to talk about... Well, that was a frustratingly complicated subject for her so instead of saying something mostly pointless along the lines of 'it's too complex to really explain', she remained silent. Shyness, be damned. Calen then talked about his semblance and some related strategies. Well, she probably wouldn't know much about strategy, so she said "M-My semblance allows me to... See... Really well for a bit, and my main weapon's behavior is generally confusing to others.", opening her eyes a bit for no reason - although she seemed to be looking at the ground a few meters in front of herself. Ooooh, wow, that was probably the longest sentence she'd said today, and she only stammered on the beginning. Things were looking up. Meanwhile, she busied herself in attempting to not be flustered from talking and mostly succeeded.

...Her voice was still kinda quiet, though...

Don't mind me just slipping on in with a worldbuild section of the initiation. Take as long or as short a time as ya'll need to get here, I don't mind.


Deep in the heart of Forever Fall, where the trees are so tightly packed together that the leaves tint the light red, lie the ruins of ancient civilisations. Who these people were has been forgotten to all but the learned few, those who adore the mystery behind the ravages of time and Grimm, who find the same satisfaction in uncovering forgotten knowledge as huntsmen and huntresses do in protecting the innocent. These ruins come in all shapes and sizes, some a mere slab of stone, or a carving in the ground. Others are towering structures that dwarf the trees that surround them and mask their secrets.

The ruins that Team ASTC are expected to encounter, should they continue their current path, is one of the latter, a collection of pillars that stand sentinel in an unnatural clearing. These pillars, while once a monument to their creators power, now seem small and inferior compared to their organic brethren just a dozen or so metres away.

These pillars, each a different height, increasing in stature in a pattern unknown for centuries, are covered in a long dead language, surround a central pillar of black stone. This pillar contains sections that have been carved out, and inside were placed relics, relics made of stone, of iron, of bronze and of wood, a collection of objects relating to the time, swords, statues of animals and the like. Not all remain, some falling to time or thieves lucky enough to stumble upon the site, but there are a few still there. Each relic has a pillar that matches it's height upon the central structure, though the meaning for this has long been forgotten.

Nearby, a mysterious collection of boulders, out of place considering the area, are almost perfectly hidden by the treeline, and would only be discovered by those with the sharpest sight or the luckiest step.

I originally was planning on slowly easing Setsuna into a more leader-based role, since I don't feel like it would be good if he just came into the group and started giving orders. That's not the kind of guy he is. Rather, when everyone was comfortable with each other, Setsuna would naturally stand out. But, if King does want to have Calen as leader, I will cede the role to him.


"A speedster you say?" mused Setsuna, hearing both Anna and Calen list their weapons and semblances. "As a matter of fact..." he activated his semblance for the first time since he stepped foot in the forest, "Mine might be similar to yours. I get extra speed and reaction time from mine, and it lasts for around a minute." Semblance fully activated, Setsuna glowed a pink-reddish hue, leaving images where he moved. "As for range..." he pulled out his own sword in the blink of an eye,"Dischord can do a bit of long-range too. Though, it's not very powerful."

"Generally speaking, I'm flexible when it comes to combat. However, since Calen seems to be more oriented to flanking, he could strike from any angle and disorient the enemy." looking at Calen. "And if your combat style is confusing to us, it'll be confusing to the others as well, which helps," speaking to Anna. "What I could fill the role of would probably be the tank? Draw the enemy's aggro and let the rest of you deal with it. Harmony should serve me fine," he gently stroked the surface of his precious shield.

"Taro, I'm not sure what your semblance is, or what your role would be, so mind filling me in?" Setsuna asked, his semblance fading and returning him to his original color. "All I know about you is that you're a swordsman. Sorry if that's a bit blunt, we just met after all," he chuckled.

"Taro, I'm not sure what your semblance is, or what your role would be, so mind filling me in? All I know about you is that you're a swordsman. Sorry if that's a bit blunt, we just met after all,"

Taro was happy to simply listen to his teammates talk about their own combat styles and take mental notes, though soon enough it came his time to speak up about it.
"Hey man, it's cool. I don't exactly expect you to know my life story, y'know?" He responded, chuckling slightly at the statement.
"In assuming I am a swordsman, you would be correct. My weapon is exactly as you see it now," He explained, pulling the plain looking sword from the sheathe on his back. Holding the sword out in front of him, Taro activated his semblance. Shrinking the blade and increasing the length of the handle, his sword had now organically morphed into a spear. "However when combined with my semblance, the ability to increase or decrease an objects height, width or length, I can morph it into various shapes and sizes." He rattled on, activating his semblance once more to return the handle to it's previous state, though he increased the length and width of the blade, creating a mighty 2.5 by 0.5 metre long greatsword, taller than Taro himself.

"In terms of combat strategy, if we have a tank, a flanker and ranged support." He said, nodding at Setsuna, Calen and Anna respectively. "Then I suppose I would be the primary attacker? Aiming for and taking out the strongest opponent in the battle. Because of my semblance's versatility in close combat, in a straight up slugfest I most likely would end up coming out on top."

Calen had already made his way a fair distance away moving in the direction of the ruins only half paying attention to his team mates answers. Before almost doubling over in laughter upon hearing Taro's semblance. 'Bet that makes you popular.' Pausing only for a moment to get another lungful of air before continuing. 'I know everyone is supposed to have their gifts but that's just a bit too on the nose don't you think?

Taking a swig from his canteen Calen is mostly silent for the next few moments, still letting out a few giggles and straightening out imagined creases in his suit. 'I'm not much for strategy but that sounds fine but we should get going, those relics aren't going to secure themselves and my instructor will kill me if I miss another recital.' With that Calen continues to make his way through the forest absolutely confident in his ability to overcome any odds.
No criticism is too harsh so hit me with your best shot.

Anna just sits there, passively listening to all. The overall ability seemd quite varied, which was good. She'd apparently drawn the short straw with the long-range, though. She felt that she far more terrifying a few metres away than 30 some metres back. Oh well, she'd be quite useful anyhow, especially with her accuracy.

Her state of mind was brutally shattered, however, when Calen pulled an innuendo regarding Taro's semblance. This time, she was not so successful at keeping her face a normal colour. She bowed her head down to let her hair cover her visage entirely - it was a neat trick, really - before assuming the position she previously had. Dammit. Dammit, dammit, dammit.

When she heard Calen strut off out of the clearing, the sound of crunching leaves being a not-too-subtle clue, she hurriedly got up and walked just as quickly towards the stiding man, pulsing her 2nd stage again. Sure, they may be leaving the others by themselves, but it was more important for nobody to be alone.
