PostSubject: Ascension: The Immortal Emperor Test Run IC   Sun May 10, 2015 4:43 pm

Welcome to the Test Run for an upcoming RP. Only Ilya may post here as she summit as a live test.





The night was approaching and silence was starting to take control of the day as the birds and wild animals take refuse in the conforts of their homes. At the far corner of the city of Miros, stood an old house. More like a small cotage. There had been rumors of some bandits around the area, but most had dismissed that as some foolish rumor. After all, what dumb bandits would make a base so near a city controled by mercenaries? Nevertheless the cotage has an eary aura to it. But that did not stop Echidna, an inspirering mercenary from approaching it, she had been given a simple mission, scout the cotage and kill any bandits she may encounter. Whatever loot she may find, it's hers to keep.

Spoiler:
 

This is how you can see the structure looks like from the outside, unfortunately the windows are boarded up and you cannot see anything inside. However even with barely any light left you can tell on the ground close to the door human footprints, both entering and exiting the cotage.

Echidna surveyed the cottage, her lip curling in distaste. Well, it wasn't much, and most likely not worth her time. But she had heard that the bandits in the region had been looting valuable items, and there might be a legendary weapon in that trove. It couldn't hurt to air out her blades a bit either.

Removing Venom and Viper from their scabbards. Echidna strode toward the main door. Pausing several yards away, she swung her blades and unleashed a shockwave of wind toward the doors, bursting them open.

"Come out and play," she said, her smile sharp and cutting. "Or am I going to have to come in?"

The door was blasted open with ease by the woman's magic causing dust to pick up. Clearly she did not want to waste any time. She heard footsteps from inside as the dust settle. When she finally had a clear view to the inside of the house she could see two people, they were armed with duel sword but stuck in place, they did not seem to want to move from where they stood. From your position you can tell that they were just playing poker before you decide to ruin their party, perharps had you done it stealthy you could have even caught them by surprise. You can also see a lit fireplace and that's when you notice, just on the corners of the door, two shadows, just beside the door there were two more people, likely waiting for you to enter and ambush you. But you were to perspective for that.

Spoiler:
 

The bandit at the far end of the table smiles when he sees you. "Oh. And I thought it would be a monster from that, but it's just a woman. Hey skank, if you wanted to have some fun you could have just knocked." You can clearly tell that he is saying that just to provoke you.

Echidna smirked as her eyes scanned the room. Four. Child's play.

She sauntered forward with slow, deliberate steps, her eyes keep close watch on the shadows of the waiting ambushers.

"I like to make an entrance," she said, grinning. "That sort of thing is what sticks in people's memories, you know? That's how you gain a reputation."

She was close to the shadows now. She gripped her blades, poised to strike, as she stepped into the path of the ambushers.

As Echidna moved close to the door, the far end bandit yells "Kill that whore!" the two shadows moved, two medium sized men jumped at her swords striking down at Echidna, the strikes were sloppy and desperate at best, you could tell that they barely had any experience holding sword, much less swinging it.

However the room had more than just two people, the ones inside also moved, one dropped his swords and pulled out a crossbow, aiming at Echidna he fires an arrow bettwen the two attackers. The one who had spoken before stood there watching his comrads fight.

"Sloppy."

Echidna slid to her knees, tossing Venom to her left and Viper to her right. The fools had their blades raised high, leaving their torsos exposed. The thrown blades should gut them with ease.

Trusting to her skilled aim, Echidna did not watch them, but instead pulled into a roll as the crossbow bolt sailed overhead. Pulling up out of the roll, she unsheathed Phobos from her remaining sheath and gripped it with both hands.

"If you make this easy for me, I'll let one of you live to spread the tale," she said, smirking as she felt Phobos begin to feed off the fear in the room. "It's no good leaving a slaughter if no one knows who did it."

The thrown blades impale the two bandits and they drop in pain, but they aren't dead, no they were bleeding badly and their guts were coming out. But not dead, you can hear their groans of pain as they get up.

"I wonder who's the sloppy one *****?"

The loud mouth insults her again, by now it was clear as day that he was the boss of the group.

"Boss, she still has the sword."

The one with the crossbow talks, his fear feeding the blade without him knowing.

"Don't falter! We are 4, she's 1. Just slice and dice boys!"

He moves forward swinging his sword, with much more skill than the rest but still not impressive to you, and the two bandits behind you throw at your back. At the same time the one with the crossbow shoots another arrow at Echidna.

"Tenacious bastards," Echidna muttered. Now she was getting annoyed, especially with having to tap into the ace up her sleeve.

Eye of the Mind - the ability to see the best outcome for success in any battle.

The layout of the room, the position of the four men, and the various attacks they prepared against her all came to her mind in an instant. Then she reacted.

Phobos swung through the air and met the blade of the leader. Channeling wind into it, Echidna knocked both herself and the man backward with a burst of air. Allowing the momentum to carry her, Echidna fell backward to the ground, hearing the satisfying thunk of the crossbow bolt splintering into the wood of the cabin wall. She scrambled to her feet, pulling the bolt out of the wall, and turned to the crossbow man. With a cry, she hurled it through the air, giving it a sheath of air as if flew. Her aim at this distance wasn't perfect, but even if it managed to not hit a fatal strike, the shredding effect from the wind would likely take him out.

She turned back to the two wounded men. Her drop to the ground had dodged their attacks, but they were still on the move. And she still had to watch for their leader. Growling, Echidna sprang for them, drawing on Phobos' power as she slashed and twirled at them with graceful ferocity, aiming to give their guts some assistance in making it to the floor.

"What?!" The leader was surprised to say the least, blasted away, he hits against the wall and falls to the ground, his face showing trues terror as he catches just a glimpse of the woman throwing a bolt to his comrad.

The bolt was thrown with such ferocity that it actualy impaled the head and decapitated the man, his head getting impaled on the wall. His blood making a mess on the wall.

The two injured men had little to no power, doing their best to keep their guts inside, they are killed mercilessly and bloody.

"WAIT! WAIT!"

The leader yells in terror as he quickly understands that he's next.

"You just want the loot right?! I'll tell you where it is! Just let me leave!"

He begs while throwing the weapon away.

Echidna surveyed the damage, feeling satisfied. It had been a bit more work than she was expecting, but then again, a work-out was good now and then.

She retrieved Venom and Viper and slid them back into their sheathes, choosing to keep Phobos in hand. The delicious fear it was drinking in was quite intoxicating. Turning to the remaining bandit, she smiled and played with the sword in her hand, giving him a moment of breathless, dreaded anticipation of her answer.

"All right," she said at last, stepping forward and kicking his weapon across the floor. "Let's see what you've got. If it's worth my time, I might leave you mostly intact."

The leader slightly relaxes as he hears the woman's answer. He points at the fireplace.

"There. There's a mechanism to open a hidden passage. That's where we hid our loot."

As if to show that's he's speaking the truth, he gets up and walks to the fireplace, pressing a stone sticking out. Now you finally notice that the fireplace was made of stone, strange considering that the whole building was made of wood. In fact you don't even remember there being a chimney in the building.

As he presses it, you hear a faint click and the stones move and a secret passage is revealed. You notice that it's leading down and you can see some light comming from down there.

Echidna raised her eyebrows, mildly impressed.

"Not bad, for a bunch of scummy bandits," she mused. She turned to the bandit and waved Phobos toward the stairs.

"Go on, you first," she said, smiling. "You didn't think I'd wander on down alone, did you?"

She grabbed him by the collar and roughly shoved him forward, blade pointed at his back.

"Move," she ordered, following behind as they descended the stairs.

"Eep!"

He flinches as she holds him by his collar and shoved him down the stairs.

As you move downwards and notice a particular smell. Rotting flesh. Once reaching the end of the stairs you notice the bandit stuck in place, his face showing more horror than when he saw you kill his comrads. Looking forward you see the room.

Spoiler:
 

It seems to be some form of sleeping room, you can see several beds and several barrels put together to make what you assume to be makeshift tables. However the most glaring thing is the several skeletons on the floor. The smell of the rotting flesh is even more present in this room, but you see no flesh, only bones.

"NONONONO! I DONT WANT TO DIE!"

The bandit screams in panic and runs back up the stairs. From his reaction you assume that whatever happened here likely happened rather recently.

Echidna froze. The sight of the room was enough to give even her pause, to say nothing of what it did to her companion.

The bandit tried to run back up the stairs, but she turned and swiftly skewered him through the leg, pinning him to the stairs.

"Hey, you, I'm not done with you yet," she growled. "Now tell me what the hell is going on here?"

She kept one eye on the room, only too aware that whatever did this could still be around.

"ARHG!"

The bandit squeels in pain as his leg is skewered by a blade.

"I DONT KNOW! THEY WERE ALIVE JUST MOMENTS AGO!"

You can tell he's in panic and even if he wanted would be incapable of lieing while in that mind state.

"WE WERE JUST DOING OUR JOB! KIDNAPPING PEOPLE TO SELL THEM TO THE SLAVE MARKET!"

Looking around, you notice the eary pathway leading forward. From what the bandit said you can assume that it leads to where prison cells where they keep the people they kidnap, but other than that, you can help but feel and eary feeling looking at it.

So, the bandit really had no idea what was going on. Echidna grunted and removed the blade, then grabbed the man by the collar once more.

"Listen up," she said, dragging him toward one of the beds. "You sit here nice and quiet, and I might let you treat that leg before it bleeds out."

She pulled him against one of the beds and tied him up with a length of rope nearby. Satisfied with her work, she nodded and headed cautiously down the passage once more. Whatever had done this seemed vicious, but it had been working against unarmed rabble. She didn't feel too nervous, just yet. If things got too bad, she could always lead it back to the bandit and let it eat him while she collected the loot or escaped, preferably both.

As Echidna walks down the pathway she notices a particularity in one of the walls. A rock was sticking significantly in comparison to everything else. You know that this could one of two, either another secret passage or a trap. As a trap it seems rather random as it can only ba activated forcefully, in other words, as a trap it's too easy to ignore.

So do you move foward or activate the stone?

Echidna paused, her eyes catching sight of a rock protruding from the wall. A trap or a another passage opening? Surely the bandits weren't clever enough to make a trap that actually targeted the activator, were they?

Steeling herself, Echidna reached forward and activated the stone.

As Echidna activates the stone she hears a loud click and a mechanism runs and stones move apart revealing another pathway, this one much smaller. You can see what's on the other side, a chest. Stepping forward you examine the new room.

Spoiler:
 

You can tell that it's a small storage room, there's several sacks of gold spread by the room, a big chest in the middle of the room and you also notice another stone sticking out off the wall in a corner, clearly another mechanism.

Despite the stench of danger, Echidna allowed herself a smile. She strode through the passage and into the room, surveying the treasure within. The gold would always come in handy, and the treasure chest might just be what she was looking for. She opened it and examined its contents, then spied another stone mechanism. She frowned, wondering what function this one could have. She glanced down the passage, considering grabbing her loot and departing.

But curiosity won out, and she moved forward carefully and grasped the stone once more.

Inside the chest you find a small crystal, thanks to your magic experience you can tell that it holds power inside it. Unfortunately that's all you can tell from the crystal, perharps finding an expert in magic would tell you what the crystal is. You know you've heard that the guild master is one said magic master.

You grasp the stone with confidence that it could not be a trap. Again you hear a loud click and mechanisms begin to move, but nothing seems to happen.

As you walk outside the room back to the other pathway you now notice some differances.

Spoiler:
 

First, just a few steps ahead you notice a hole that was not there before. You are able to conclude that it was a trap, perharps the stone you pressed released all the mechanisms. Looking down you see a very strange green liquid. Whatever it is, it ain't water.

Looking forward, now you can see the end of the pathway, what seems to be an open cell with a woman standing in the middle. You're a bit far, but you can tell from her clothes that she's not just some random bandit. You also start to hear what seems to be claps comming from the woman.

Tucking the crystal safely away and loading the gold onto her back, Echidna made her way out of the passage and looked about.

It seemed that the rest of the trap mechanisms had been disabled. Inspecting the pit of green unknown, she swiftly avoiding it as she made her way down the passage, stopping at the sounds of clapping.

A woman stood at the end - no prisoner or bandit, she could tell. Eyes narrowed, Echidna slowly approached the end of the passage, alert for any tricks.

"Hey, who are you?" she demanded warily.

*clap**clap**clap*

"Not bad. Not bad. Given I didn't doubt your fighting prowess."

The woman dramaticaly declares. Now that you are closer you can examine her better. First of all, she's young, probably younger than even you. She's blond and has unique red eyes. She's also wearing a rather luxurious dress, leading you to assume that she's some form of noble.

"I'm also not impressed, rather I'm not disappointed. You behaved as I expected of you."

Still despite the her age you can tell from her words that she is no child. To careful and calculative with her words. Also now you start to realise, why would a noble be here so far away from the capital?

"However this is still not over. There is still much to do. You can fight with a bunch of fooder and can easily spot the secrets of a dungeon. Now let's see how to face against a monster."

As she talks you feel an ominous feeling on your spine. Unfortunately it was too silent for you to notice, as a giant green blob of slime towers over you from behind. You recognise the substance as the one in the hole from the trap.

"I'd be careful, you wouldn't want to turn up like those poor bandits."

The woman teases as the massive blob tries to fall on you.

Echidna cursed. Of course, this would be another trap. She dived out of the way as the blob crashed into the ground where she had stood. Her agility was not up to par, weighed down by the bags of gold, and she landed quite unflatteringly on the ground.

Muttering curses, she tossed the bags of gold to the side to free herself and returned Phobos to its sheath. Venom and Viper would suit her better here.

But how to deal with a sludge monster? She didn't know if the consistency of its body would be damaged by swords - and getting that close to its body didn't seem wise in any case.

She could try magic, but she wasn't sure she could mount that kind of offensive power. She was used to using it for augmentation purposes.

That left...

"Hey, you!" Echidna growled, turning and rushing for the strange woman with swords raised. "I don't know who you think you are, but I don't perform for anyone! Now call that thing off if you want to live!"

The woman rests her hand on her chin as she examines you comming closer to her. She seems unfazed by your atempts at your order. Still she also did nothing as you reached her with raised weapons.

"Hmmm... You seem uncertain on what to do. So you move to the next solution."

The blob seems to halt at her words. The woman raises her hands as you finally seem to notice a hint of fear. You assume that for all her confidence that she's rather weak physically.

"Rest assured Miss Echidna that I would never actualy harm one of my children."

You notice at this point that the blob disappeared, apparently flowing into the gaps of the floor. The woman takes a bow and finaly introduces herself.

"I am Thevana. That not likely has no meaning alone. But you might know me as the guild master."

She rests her hands on her waist as she looks at the ceiling. Probably trying to remember something.

"Anyway, a few sources had told me of you. Now before you start thinking that I put everyone through these things. You're quite mistaken."

She waves her hand in denial as if it's an embarressing reality.

"That's too much work for me to personally be involved."

That's when her eyes flashed in cold red. Eyes that felt that belonged to a predator.

"The thing is. You're a special case, what with your past and all. Not that I really care about what you did. But I needed to know how strong you were in case things went....well, you know, bad."
