Gunlocke Chapter 1 [Disembark]

Post by Asgore Dreemurr on Sat Sep 03, 2016 4:54 pm

First topic message reminder :

Spoiler:
In the year 2020, the world was quickly depleting many of its natural resources, mainly petroleum oil and fossil fuels. Pollution was on the rise, and temperatures climbed at an exponential rate. Because of this global outcry, countries began to demand other countries to share some of their resources. The constant feud over eventually sparked a global resource war, which quickly escalated into a new missile crisis. China, Russia, Iraq, Japan, Cuba, France, Great Britain, and the United States of America along with smaller allied countries began to fight their wars with fire. Nuclear bombs went off in major cities all around the world, killing millions. The radiation and debris caused a thermonuclear winter that eventually killed off 70% of the world population and caused a sixth mass extinction.

150 years later, the nuclear winter ended. Now, deserts plague the Earth with very little green patches left. Humanity began to pick itself back up after surviving in primitive conditions. Cities began to pop up, but they were nothing like they were before. There were cities made of metal. Everything ran of electricity generated by steam. It was a new steam-punk style era. Cities were vastly spread apart, so one would need to brave harsh terrain to get to another city or village.

A new natural resource was found as a result from the radiation. This strange new element, element 119, had new strange properties. They were magical in a sense, which gave it its new name -- Magium. It was dangerous to handle raw, so they were placed in specialized pills. These pills were eventually implemented in machines and weapons, primarily to combat a new threat -- Monsters.

The wildlife that once inhabited the Earth mutated as a result of the radiation. They turned into ravenous beasts. Humans fought back with their new magic infused weapons to keep them at bay. Humanity began to pick itself up again, but who knows what threats may come. Now, the year is 2250, 80 years after Magium's discovery.
   Haven is the largest city known to be using Magium as a primary energy source. It is clean, efficient, and has no pollution production. However, the city is slowly running out of this precious resource. A letter has been send out to all citizens as a call to action, a cry for help. Those who volunteer must be willing to venture out of the city and into the wastelands, where monsters and bandits call home. Very little people showed up, including you.

RP Goals:
Learn your weapons.
Interact with eachother.
Gain Gold.
Make friends.
Don't die.

You have been sitting in the hot sun for two hours. The heat is unbearable, and no one has much water left. You all find shade against the exiting gate of Haven, counting your Magium pills. All of you have 10 pills, 5 of which are stored in a special case. The other 5 are in your pocket, which risks the danger of them falling out of getting stolen.

Suddenly, you hear a deep male voice coming from a loud speaker atop a tall poll:
"All volunteers of the Haven Magium Recovery Project may now embark. Stay safe!"
There is a long dirt path that is hardly visible. It is implied that you must follow it.

YOUR HUD AND HP

You take damage when you are hit or when your defense/attack is beaten by another attack equal to the difference in power. Every post, your character loses 1 stamina. After all of it is depleted, your character will pass out due to exhaustion. During combat, it is 3 stamina per post. This is your HUD for combat:

@Valkoor The mound seemed to scream in pain when the sword pierced through it. It shook and shifted, revealing that under the mound was a massive scorpion-like insect. The sword slash only scratched its plated body when it bounced off its exoskeleton. The scorpion creature hissed violently, prompting the other mounds to burst and reveal more of the same creature. A strange liquid dripped from their mandibles that caused the dirt beneath them to dissolve almost instantly. The tip of their tails glowed a bright green, same as the sludge that dripped from their mouths.

Luri quickly drew her lance, preparing to counter attack.

Creature Info Index:
Creature: Clausolus
Type: Insect
HP: 30
Stamina: 30
RoA: 45
Information: A large creature measuring at around 4 feet in height. Its tail is double its height, and has a powerful acid that it can inject with its stinger to spit with once every three turns. May have an item drop when killed.
Weak spot: Underbelly, Joints
Weak to: Lance, Guns, Bow
Strong against: Gauntlets, Swords.

COMBAT, START! Turn 1:

Clausolus x 10 turn:

@Valkoor The large creature swung its tail in a horiztonal motion. It is not preparing to inject or spit acid.
@Tamashi The scoprion's mandible retracted then spat forwards a small spew of acid from around 15 feet away. (Easy to evade.)
@Voltage Cutlass Diana The clausolus near her attempted to snap at her with its left claw.
@soul kitten The creature shot acid towards him from 20 feet away. (Easy to evade)
@Führer Lunarnox  The insect near her prepared to stab her with its stinger by swiftly lunging its tail forwards from 9 feet away. (Easy to evade.)
@Necruta The large Causolus spat acid towards Madeline from 20 feet away. (Easy to evade. Will dissolve the rock if it hits it.)
@Videns Tristen was attacked when the creature jabbed at him with its stinger.
@Firebreath The creature suddenly spat acid from 20 feet away. (Easy to evade.)
@Trini Ousay was assaulted by the crap when it tried to jump over him, exposing his underbelly once it was nearly atop him. (Good punch to the gut?)
The final creature snapped at Luri with its claw.


Luri quickly jumped back, then jabbed forwards with her lance towards the center of the scorpion's head.

The Clausolus immediately was pierced by her lance, dealing 40 damage. -30 HP. The Clausolus was killed!

[HP] 100
[M. Pills] 10/10
[Stamina] 49/50
[Weapon] Lance
[Status] N/A


Once the Clausolus was killed, there was a small bag next to it. Luri gained 30 gold!

TURN 2: YOUR TURN!

Alexander remained calm and collected--which was unlike him normally. Typically, he would be running around happy as can be, but this, this was battle, something he longed for inside, something a part of him yearned for. Remaining silent, he jumped about four feet diagonally to the left, giving him enough space on the side to dodge the scorpion's spit while also moving him further away from the rest of the insects. With Whisper in his right hand, his left reached into his pill pouch and removed one pill, then placed it into his mouth. Once he gulped it down, his body would be filled with energy and his eyes would feel as though they became scopes, zooming in on his target--the scorpion that shot at him. Kneeling down, he attached Whisper's longer barrel to the end of it and took aim, readying his shot.

Taken aback by the site of this weird scorpion creature left Savannah dumbfounded. She was dumbfounded by its size but quickly snapped out of it when she saw it spit something at her. Quickly using her legs to kick herself towards the her side as she tried to avoid any form of contact with it, out of fear of what it could do to her.

Vanix, with his expectations on a creature under the sand, already knew an attack was coming. He nimbly jumped back out of the range of the tail, bringing his sword down on one of the many joints as it moved. His legs were spread wide enough to maintain his balance, while still goving him time to jump or bolt again if need be.

As the humidity intensified and the holy woman was finishing what she was saying, the mounds began to move. One got up and jabbed it's stinger towards Tristan. Caught slightly off guard, Tristan jumped to the left attempting to avoid the stinger. As he landed he felt a small twinge in his left arm while removing the his sword from his scabbard. The movement was swift and since the sword was pinned to Tristan's side in one fell swoop he managed to slice towards the stinger of the beast. While slashing Tristan would reach into his left pocket with his free hand and swallowed two pills. With a hard swallow, A large gust of wind came from Tristan's blade and made it's way to another mound that had not targeted another one of the group.

Skill used: Pills 8/10:

Name: Summit gust
Duration: 2 posts
Drawback: Tristan Cannot see the attack either which makes it hard to hit it's mark
Cost: 2 pills
Effect: Tristan slashes the air which easily bifurcate a stone wall from a distance. This attack in nearly invisible with only the outline being shown. Tristan has full control over this gust allowing him to control it as he sees fit.

As the creature came up to attack Ousay, he crouched down to create more room between him and the monster. While crulouches Ousay reached for the hilt if his sword and brought it down causeing the blade to swing upwards from his back aiming to slash the monsters underbelly. As the sword came up Ousay used his other free hand to hold the blunt of the blade to give it extra power, and to stop the cresture from crushing him if the slash did not kill.

Cress shook her head when the clausolai burst from the ground.
"Yep, I expected that..." She quickly assessed the situation. The tails and the mouths were dripping with an acidic substance. The claws looked fine, but chances were it would still hurt. Keeping a watchful eye on the tail and other claw, Cress jumped backwards to evade, flicking her wrists while in midair so two blades flew out of her sleeves, which she promptly caught by the handles. They were sharp and triangular, with insulated padding on the handles. She quickly brought the katars into a position in which she would be able to parry the next strike.

Kane wasn't ready for the sudden change in setting making him unable to react properly, this gave him less time to dodge the attack that was coming his way. But luckily the attack came from a far enough range allowing him to lunge himself to the left. He caught himself with both of his hands taking a good look at the creature, he was bewildered. Kane had never seen a scorpion that big, only the small ones, living most of his life near the village he'd only seen a specific amount of monsters.

Kanes first reaction was to attack the monster, quickly coming to the point that long range was the best option. Taking two pills from his pocket and placing one in each gauntlet, they both engulfed themselves in electricity that made a sharp and fast crackling sound, and a bolt of lightning formed in his right hand while two more formed in his left. In what seemed like an instant he threw the one in his right straight for the scorpions head, the moment the lightning bolt left his hand a thundering sound came from the sheer speed, to anyone who was looking at it from the side it looked like Kane shot a bolt of lighting at the monster. Kane took one of the two from his left hand and held it in his right. The electricity going through his hands was enough to start making his hair float up and his eyes glow, if he were to move the light in his eyes would move slower than he actually did, sort of like a doppler effect.

Thunderbolt:
-2 pills

Name: Thunderbolt (Will upgrade)
Duration: 1-5 posts
Drawback: He is unable to move while Thunderbolt is active.
Cost: 2 pills
Effect: Kane is able to create 3 spears, and only 3. Made out of electricity that look like lightning bolts, he can throw them like a spear, with the speed of a lightning bolt, these bolts will not go away until Kane turns off his gauntlets, or reach the 5 post limit. Kane is able to call back his Thunderbolts back to him.

Elaine waited until the last possible moment and dodge forward towards the giant insect, under the striking tail. In the same movement she unsheathed Elysium, gripping it by the hilt and the blade then pivoting on her right foot she slammed the tip of the blade into the Clausolus' face.

Madoline ducked under the ball of acidic spit the giant insect spat at her, then, atop her rock, she commanded it surge forward towards the monster to crush it like a.. like a bug..

Every Clausolus that was attack was killed. The other surviving Clausolus witnessed this and decided to retreat.

Everyone would find bags on the ground, each containing 30 gold.

"Well...that was easier than I expected."

"Interesting behavioral patterns..if you kill a few of the colony, the rest of them turn tail. Let's take that into account in case we ever run into more of those." Cress didn't seem too fazed by the matter, but then again neither was anyone. She simply slipped the blades back into her sleeves and looked ahead at the now clausolus-free path.

Elaine wiped Elysium on her clothes then sheathed the blade. Next she clasped her hand, bowed her head and offered a quick silent prayer to the Lord. With that done she turned to the party, "Hallelujah! Nothing to worry about, just a few pests! Shall we continue on our way? We have much ground to cover before nightfall."

"Those things died really fast, like..wow,"said Savannahwith pure disappointment in her voice as she stretches her back. She checks her arms and makes sure nothing serious got inside them. Her inspectiong showed no signs of snything thst could dsmsge the gears in there.

As the others began to put their weapons away and chat, Alexander did not. He remained silent, breathless, staring down the barrel of Whisper at the retreating insects. He knew from this distance he wouldn't be able to pierce their armor just yet, but he needed a body. He craved one; it was who he was in combat. Silently, he began shifting his aim around the group. First the zealot, then the spear-wielder, then the one riding the boulder much like the pioneers did. He was around for those days...Then he took aim at the silent one who hadn't said much and joined the group at the last second. A perfect shot lined up--his index finger ached and twitched, ready to pull the trigger. And then...

Alexander sighed and lowered Whisper. As much as he needed something to die, he needed this team more at the moment. Unscrewing the long barrel of Whisper, he placed it at his side and stood up, Whisper dangling in his right hand. Slowly he walked to meet up with the others, the effects of his magium pill wearing off and returning his eyesight to normal.

"Well that was disappointing. Oh well. Time to get going." Alexander strode past the others without looking at them, his left hand jingling the money that he had somehow obtained from the Clausolas.

Tristan was puzzled. The enemy had the advantage yet retreated. Still Tristan couldn't complain too much he got some gold for his trouble. Placing his sword back into the scabbard Tristan noticed a flicker of shifting light. Turning to meet it he seen the man in a suit with a gun put away his weapon. "Hmm weird. Coulda sworn I seen him- nah its this heat." Tristan mumbled to himself. Continuing on woth the rest of the group seemed to be in his best intrest for now. Everyobe seemed to be on the same page as no one seemed to stray too far from the group.

Tristan walked a little quicker than usual to catch up with Elaine. "So, anything else you can tell me of your religuon miss?" Tristan asked. He did not bother tending to his arm. It was a scrape if anything and wasnt even bleeding and as far as pain went it barely made a twinge. Everyone else seemed fine too.

Alexander hummed to himself as he placed his newly-found loot into his suit pocket. After adjusting his mask a bit he chuckled at Luri.

"Yes indeed my dear--too easy! They went running at the sight of my beautiful Whisper taking aim at their sorry hides I'm sure!" Alexander played up the fact that he did nothing but take aim--which still slightly bothered him although he didn't show it.

As Elaine walked thinking to herself about how wonderful the Lord was and how Blessed the group was to have him watching over them she turned to face Tristan, "Oh of course! But there is so much to tell! But first you must now, it isn't simply a belief or a religion. The Lord is simply the undeniable truth! We of the Brotherhood are simply His agents on Earth but you don't have to be in the order to know that following the Lord's wisdom and guidance is the only path to salvation!"

Elaine paused for a moment to catch her breath before asking, "Was there anything in particular you wanted to know?"


Madoline rode her rock up to Savannah and Cress before jumping off. In a flash she pulled out two small cards and handed one to each of the girls. The cards said "Rock Solid Deliveries" and had an address for the location of the shop. "Hey there! Those scorpions were pretty weak huh? Anyway I'm Madoline by the way. "

She nodded, "Man, I wish we had something harder, ya know? I like a good scufle! My lance just aches to drill into something and tear it apart. I love takin' skulls as trophies. If they're tiny, they get to be keychains!" Luri would hold up a tiny key with a ring, which had a small reptile-like skull on it. "Like this one. Ain't he pretty? I call him Earl."

"Yes, very." While his mask hid the fact that he wasn't actually looking at the object, Alexander kept walking, slightly quiet. He was thinking and walking at the same time. Reaching into his jacket pocket, he pulled out his familiar flask and tilted his mask up to only reveal his pale lips long enough to take a swig of his drink, then he fixed his mask and placed the flask away.

Cress shrugged and accepted the card. " 'Cress. Good to meetcha." She examined it for a minute before slipping it into her pocket. Always nice to have a way to get pizza.
"Alright, I'm with the guy with the hat. We should get going now, let's socialize while walking instead of sitting around." With that she strode in the same direction as Alexander, but following her own path.

"This is boring what the hell are we even doing," yelled Savannah as she falls to floor in pure boredom.

She looks up at the sky as she begins to contemplate as to why their first fight was so easy. Maybe it was just her over thinking things but either way it left her annoyed. Eventually she gets back off the floor an proceeds to speak with Luri.

"I never introduced myself, my name is Savannah," said Savannah as she reaches her hand forward to shake Luris

"Hmmm.." Tristanhad took in what Elaine had told him and wondered if there really was anything else he wanted to know. "Well, what you said answered most of my questions but raised a few." Tristan began, lifting his hand and rubbing his chin. "What wisdom and such would one need to follow to appease you- I mean The lord. I presume sacred text and such?" Tristan asked Elaine. "And My name is Tristan, very pleased to meet you." He said offering his hand to Elaine.

Elaine shook Tristan's hand, "And I am Elaine. As a normal citizen following the Lord is really very easy! One must simply accept the fact that he is the supreme being and that he will deliver all the faithful to Paradise. Beyond that He teaches us to show love and compassion to all, especially to other followers and to those who have not yet learned the truth of His love. However, there are some people in this world who would refuse the Lord's love and would preach hatred and war. The Lord's demands we cleanse the hate mongers from the world."

Elaine made a dismissive gesture before she continued, "But that's my job, not yours. Forgive me I get carried away, you asked about a 'sacred text'? We have 'historical events.' Ancient accounts from time immemorial when the Lord himself walked the earth as he will again one day. Some of the events are really quite amazing, like when the Lord and three of his most trusted generals lead a vast army to liberate a legendary city that had been taken over by a horrible tyrant. Times when the Lord guided a group of champions through the land as they fought to save all they held dear."

Pausing she looked around at the group around her, "Much like us I would like to think, I feel the Lord's hand guiding and sheltering us.. Oh, and of course there's the obvious one, the Lord created this universe, and everything in it, much like He created Paradise. Those are but a few of the many great things the Lord has done in the ancient times."
