Akel was first to sprint to the grimm as soon as it started to reel back with her weapon in hand and rotating the silver ring to trigger the transformation into the scythe. Jumping onto the Deathstalker's armoured shell with her weapon transformed into its scythe form she went for a clean slice aimed at the tail, just before the stinger to get rid of a massive problem before it would really trouble them.

Now well and truly flustered by Calen's commentary, Rory was still trying to figure out how to respond when he basically disappeared, yanked with total abruptness behind some nearby crates of supplies. However, from where the shield fighter was standing it wasn't really possible to tell that Calen had been pulled -- the sudden motion was easy enough to mistake for Calen's Semblance, after all. Had he known the sudden peril his teammate was in Rory would immediately have rushed over, but as it was he was just left confused as to whom Calen had been talking to before he "ran off".

"What is it with the formal-wear guys...?" The question was half-muttered to himself. Doing his best to shrug off his embarrassment, Rory turned to Cami. "She should still be here, yeah I bet she's still here -- she was very set on meeting up with you Cami. Though I'm not sure if we should wait or go looking... and, unfortunately, our situation has become a bit more complicated. To bring you up to speed: we found Gaud but got chased all the way here by what was probably a full pack of albino Beowolves using the fog for cover. Unfortunately... well, there was a situation as we approached and one of the town's defense guns got taken out. Now the village chief has demanded we get a replacement from Navo, while one of us stays to defend the entrance."

"Sorry that your village tour is turning into so many extra problems..."
Whether or not an apology was really necessary, Rory felt compelled to offer one. This mess of a situation was not going to be fun to explain back at Beacon, to be sure...

Where Valkyries Fly

ARENA: Amity Coliseum
CURRENT TERRAIN: Default



Normally this sort of thing wasn't exactly Cordell's cup of tea -- pirates, after all, don't go looking for fair fights when an unfair fight can be had. Yet here she was, striding out onto the most renowned battle stage in all of Remnant. Amity Coliseum somehow seemed... bigger than it looked on the tournament broadcasts. Maybe it was all the empty seats? Or maybe it was the camera work and nimble fighters who made it seem more compact.

In any case, when one finds the famed arena making its way between kingdoms and its escorts are called away to deal with Grimm, who can be faulted for having a peek? It wasn't hard to imagine what it must be like, stepping out under the bright lights with thousands of cheering fans filling the stadium seating, the excitement, the anxiety, the anticipation of battle. Perhaps if life had taken a different turn she could've stood here legitimately, competing under the Atlas banner. Ah, it was a nice thought, at least.

Only, Cordell wasn't as alone as she assumed...

(OOC: Sorry for the long-delayed response everyone. I'll try to keep more up to pace in the future.)



As SLVA was nearly into position, the Death Stalker suddenly paused in mid-motion. Budonoki watched warily as it seemed to look around, possibly sensing for movement. There was a narrow window here, he realized -- Death Stalkers were known to be able to sense ground vibrations much like the scorpions they resembled, and if this one had picked up on the group then they would soon have to defend themselves.

"Cover me." Was the only instruction the aging Faunus gave, whispered to Luna and Rukt. There was no time to explain what he was about to do -- only to do it.

Placing his staff flat on the ground, Budonoki closed his eyes and concentrated -- immediately a tendril of fresh spring-like green slithered out from an almost imperceptible gap in the staff's gnarled woody exterior and tucked into the dirt. His breathing stilled and became almost imperceptible. The Death Stalker, meanwhile, suddenly became more alert, shuffling around slightly as if confused where its prey was. Then, all at once, a vine leapt up from below the ground and snared the creature's leg; the Death Stalker, startled, reeled back and quickly broke free only for another vine to emerge and grab onto another leg. Team SLVA had their opening to strike!

Infrared caught up when Cordell is explaining the situation. She blinks a bit to adjust to the light, and spoke when she did.

"So not me, I guess. ...We probably don't want to do that, as we don't know how well it's hull integrity is preserved. Plus selling the ship as preserved as possible is probably as profitable if not more than the crown. Speaking of which where is it? Would want to bring it into containment as soon as possible."

"...Wait. Why are we talking about sales? Aren't we supposed to hand at least the ship and the crown over to the society?"
..!
Realizing the potential implications, Infrared jumped away from them instinctively, Not making any aggressive or defensive gestures but attempted to keep being alert. She is now worryingly looking for the confirmation that she's just overreacting.

Character Creation / Re: Kozmo Royale
« Last post by Kingnoname1 on Today at 04:32:42 AM »
OK so now for the real review, one required change and one recommended. You should have some degree of limiting factor to the semblance itself, uses per *time period*/cool down/fixed amount of velocity transferred. I think it would be best for you to come up with a limitation of the semblance which best fits.

And as a recommendation, although you cover everything you need to I would consider looking through the approved characters if I was you just to get an idea of how much we are going to expect from you. Like I said this is enough for you first character but we would prefer more detail, particularly in history/combat behaviour.

"Considering I haven't met any of you before this--no." Setsuna said, originally confused by what he was implying but eventually figuring it out. That's all he's asking, right? Right. He looked around the room for the next hapless victim. "Julia? Truth or Dare?"

'Only way out is throught.' Calen remarked grandiosely as the door slammed behind them and that quite boyish voice rang out. Inwardly Calen cursed himself for this mistake and the circumstances it put both himself and Teddy in. Going onward seemed like the only option but it was definitely not looking very healthy even if it might be the fastest way out of this mess. Purposely trying to slow down his breathing as Calen kept going forward as the dark walls felt like they gathered closer around the gaunt boy it was almost a relief when they came to the light up door even with the sounds of combat roaring behind it.

Reaching towards the door Calen looked back at Teddy just in time to see his team mate mouth his warning/request. Thinking slightly about the request Calen seemed to back off and walk towards his team mate and gave Teddy a small smile but in reality was only giving himself a run up to the door. The green glow which emanated from Calen was enhanced by the darkness as Calen threw himself at the door with his semblance, augmented further by his aura, Calen slammed hard into the door trying to rocket through into whatever lies beyond.

     After a strong gust of wind pushed Topaz back through the open door she decided it wasn't worth wandering around outside in the violent winds, what if a strong gust of wind pushed her off the boat? She shuddered at the thought of being lost at sea, it was not something she wanted to think about. At any rate, standing around outside wouldn't do any good since the visibility was basically non-existent she decided. Right before she was going to give her brief report the ship violently jerked in a direction, knocking her into the wall and off her feet along with forcing a small yelp out of her. "What the heck was that" She exclaimed to the empty hall quicking getting back on her feet. The possibilities of what happened raced through her mind'Grimm? No that was too big even a giant sea monster couldn't do that, I think. Maybe we ran aground on some small uncharted island?...No these computers a-" Her train of thought process was interrupted by Avery's announcement.

     Topaz's eyes widened as the news that the ship was breached came out the speakers, of all the places possible this was really not somewhere where she wanted to be stranded at sea. Her thoughts quickly flashed back to being pushed off the boat by the strong storm's wind. 'Maybes it not too bad and it can be patched up quickly'She thought as she ran down the hall and down the stairs towards where she suspected the breach was. Practically falling down the stairs she arrived a minute after the initial breach at the bottom of the ship where her boots hit some water that had gushed in. At this point, there was an already considerable amount on the floor all flowing from an easy to spot source. A massive pillar jutting out of the side of the ship.Her mind raced trying to think of some way she could fix it before realizing that she should probaly contact her "leader" before doing anything hasty.

"Dorian do you hear me!? " She practically yelled into her masks microphone.

"The damage here is pretty bad, I'm not sure what to should do. If I had a welding torch I could try to fix it but even then I don't think its enough. I could try using Lithium but I don't think he can get hot enough for long enough."She said her voice filling with panic as the water rose higher the thought of drowning become harder to push away.
