  1. Spiders chase after Keto. There is no much brainstorming required to know how to do this by now: stick to the beams, block, squash and stab. Luckily, spiders' brains obviously have not grown enough to realize the flaw in their attacks- it is unorganized. One jumps right in front of Keto and then attempts to attack her head on ending splattered over the rafters. A few more spiders attempts different stunts, but they all ultimately end up the same way- either they get stabbed or squashed. Fighting without the queen in the front lines was a mistake for them. However, as soon as Keto cleans that mess up there comes the Queen again. Can't say by the look of her face, but she seems kinda pissed. Well, Keto just turned a few more of her children into pudding right in front of her eyes. Who wouldn't be angry? Queen makes quick maneuvers around the place and then leaps towards Keto. Keto jumps aside, but queen shoots her web at Keto. After binding the girl by her arm queen pulls her back and opens the gigantic jaw to devour her arm. "You're wide open!" Keto confidently shouts at the spider and pulls the knife out again. She misses queen's head, but rams her in the back. Queen panics and lets go off Keto and jumps aside before turning towards Keto again to attempt another attack. Keto begins to feel a bit dizzy and tired from the spider venom. "Damn it... You're stubborn." Keto mutters. Figures she will have to go all-out if she is to beat this spider. How humiliating. This combination of terrain and opponents really does not do it for her. Maybe going up here alone was a bad idea.
  2. *5 minutes later* "Ugh..." Keto mutters. Against her expectations, she is having quite a difficult time with the queen. Despite the giant body queen moves very quickly around the beams and rafters and can jump almost as fast as her kids. Who could have expected something of that size to be so fast? Queen climbs up the rafter and then leaps towards Keto who has to avoid so she would not get crushed. With little ones Keto could have waited and then crushed them, but do that with a spider that probably weights over 100 kilos. Even Shield Stance is not guaranteed to help Keto since she can still get pushed down. Keto draws her kitchen knife and runs towards the queen and strikes to destroy the head. However, queen quickly leaps aside and then leaps towards Keto slamming her with the massive body. Keto flies into a beam under that force and breaks the beam. "Ugh... Who's gonna pay for that...?" Keto asks rhetorically. Bet owners will make her pay despite the fact that she is risking her life jumping up there and killing cat-to-horse-sized spiders. Other spiders quickly run up the rafters and three of them jump on Keto who is barely making sure she does not fall off. They sink their teeth into her left biceps, back and left thigh. Keto squeals in pain and jumps up and purposely falls down on the beam with her back squashing one spider. She quickly stabs the remaining two spiders and stands up. By the time she realizes what is going on queen spider is already preparing to make another leap. Keto looks left and right, but there is no good spot to jump to without being exposed to more attacks. Queen leaps towards her and Keto jumps on another beam and then just continues jumping from one to another until she finds herself in the middle of the construction. Jumping is a bit more difficult now with that annoying pain in her body from spiders' bites. And worst of all, she notices a few more spiders incoming from the sides. "Oh, Jesus Christ on a bike..."
  3. It takes a minute or two, but Keto reaches her destination. It is the right place- temperature is much higher here and disgusting smell fills Keto's nostrils. Beams become sticky to walk on- this must have been oozing out of those monsters' queen. "Eww..." Keto mutters. She makes a few steps forward into the darkness and loud sound of scratching catches her attention. Slowly, from the darkness, giant insect legs emerge and, soon, the rest of the body. And guess what hot supermodel it is. A giant freaking spider. Big surprise, yes, but wait, there is MORE. This spider is not as big as a cat- it's gargantuan, like a giant dog or a smaller horse. It's the queen. If that lovely lady bites you she can tear off your entire arm. And her webs must be stronger than of her 'cute' little kids. "You're a big one, aren't ya? Oh, you're gonna pop so nice." Keto says in a dark tone and smiles. She then takes her little bottle and takes one good sip. She puts it back in the pocket. "Alright... LET'S DANCE!!" Keto yells and leaps forward at the spider queen to smash her head into bits.
  4. Spider queen should not be too far now. Little by little, Keto has been climbing, jumping from one beam to another. This quest mainly consists of jumping and climbing rather than fighting the spiders. Quite a workout, but Keto is not complaining. She is more-or-less used to such activity thanks to all the treasure-hunting she has been doing over the past 6 years. All this jumping around and dealing with creepy crawlies is a regular Monday for her. And also, the more advantage enemy has the more satisfying is the victory. If a bunch of ugly spiders got the best of Keto she would throw herself off the bridge. A few spiders make their way up, but Keto takes her time with them. She gets them one by one; some being squashed, some being stabbed with the kitchen knife. Ultimately, she racks up the score of 12-13 spiders and paints the beams with their insides. "Aww, damn... the owners are gonna force me to clean this up, too." She complains. Sounds of crawling stop completely. So that leaves Keto with one more mission- kill the mother of pests.
  5. While Keto is handling one spider other one seizes the opportunity to attack. It jumps at Keto aiming to bite her face. Keto reacts quick enough and blocks the spider with her left arm, but spider still remains attached. It starts crawling around Keto's arm to quickly find a spot it can bite into. Keto reaches for a small sheathe on her back with her right hand and pulls out a sharp-looking kitchen knife. Spider produces long strings of silky web and binds Keto's left arm completely. Bind is too strong to resist and Keto's left arm becomes unusable. Spider continues to make webs binding her elbow and coming close to the shoulder and face. "Not today!!" Keto yells angrily and rams the kitchen knife right into spider's head making it fall off. She then throws spider on the ground squashing it with her foot. Other spiders have been knocked down a minute ago and they do not seem to be coming back. Perhaps they're still climbing up or perhaps they gave up? No point in staying here to find out. The sooner the queen is killed the better. Keto cuts webs off with the knife, sheathes it and jumps up grabbing onto a beam. She then climbs up further to look for the spider queen.
  6. *5 minutes later* Keto has not yet killed a single spider. They have been working together and forcing her to move from beam to beam. Because she cannot keep her composure and fight them simultaneously with equipment she has this proves to be quite hard. For someone with a wide array of magical attacks, or ranged attacks in general, this would have been a piece of cake. After another united jump of spiders Keto is forced to jump on another beam to avoid getting hit by them all together. She makes several jumps making a few meter distance between herself and spiders. This gives her a little time to think. "If I am to worry about getting hit I will never land a single blow." Keto thinks. She then turns towards the spiders and takes a deep breath. Spiders jumps towards Keto and she silently growls without jumping away this time. She puts both her arms over her head to protect the eyes and the face. "Let's change the game a little bit. Shield Stance!" Keto yells. Surge of energy goes through her body and surrounds Keto briefly with translucent blue light. Three or four spiders land a direct hit on Keto, but are just deflected and sent back flying. Two spiders land near Keto; one on the left and one on the right. One remains still and the other one quickly grabs on Keto's right leg. It quickly goes up and nearly crawls up under her skirt. Keto quickly grabs it with her right hand and lifts it. "Just what are you trying to do!?" She angrily yells and clenches her fist crushing the little crawler and splattering its insides around. Luckily, Keto wears gauntlets so it should not harm her. Keto did not intend to use her Chi to fight these bastards, but it appears they leave her with zero choice.
  7. *3 minutes later* "Pesky little buggers, aren't you?" Keto thinks. She cannot afford wasting breath on them. This task is proving itself to be quite tricky. Keto knew what she was signing up for, but these spiders are really annoying. They are very tiny and quick, maneuvering around Keto and trying to catch her off guard. She manages to kill one or two by punching them and crushing them against the beams. Using the beams she manages to preserve her balance and attack any incoming spider. But that tactic ceases to work as the number of spiders beings to grow. A few of them jump at her simultaneously. Keto jumps off and grabs the edge of another beam quickly climbing up to regain her composure. "This is going slow... but, at least, it's working." Keto thinks. If she can just repeat this tactic all over and over she could exterminate a dozen of spiders or so. But there is no guarantee her luck will last. And this might last for an hour or so considering how it has been so far.
  8. Keto left her backpacks down in the Tavern for staff to protect. Whether someone steals anything or not does not concern Keto- she will sniff it out. But what did she leave them for? She took up a small task to eradicate spiders in the near. And those are some giant spiders. And a whole freaking bunch of them. Those little creepers will be nice punching bags for Keto to cure her boredom. Keto slowly walks up towards the roof. She looks forward, right, left, up and down. There is not a single spider in her sight at the moment, but she sure can hear those annoying things crawling around the walls and rafters. She puts her battle gauntlets on, leaves her knife on standby and pulls out a little glass bottle. "That ought to warm me up..." Keto says with a smirk on her face and takes a quick sip from the bottle. "Aye, that's the stuff!" She says and puts the bottle back in her pocket. For such a young girl she sure is into this liquor she always carries around. Hopefully she can refill later in the Tavern. "Now come out, vermin." She yells energetically. Crawling becomes louder and louder; spiders are coming from every direction. This should be fun... not for the spiders though.
  9. open

    Keto has just returned from her travels to the North. Treasure hunting has not been very successful with all the bandits having raided all the ruins already. "What a bummer..." Keto mutters as she sits on a little wooden chair in the Tavern. This makes her want to punch someone in the face. And all this noise in the Tavern just makes it impossible for her to think. She has been reading her map hoping to think of some place she could go... But inspiration does not serve her well now. In these situations she has a very unhealthy way of getting rid of stress. Overhearing the word 'spiders' gives her an idea. "Hmm... I have nothing better to do." She says hoping she could squash some of those disgusting little creepers.
  10. Hello. I am planning to start my first quest, Arachnophobia, in the tavern and admin pointed me here to ask if anyone wants to tag along in the quest. All I can reward you with are fresh chocolate cookies.
  11. Ah, so that's how it goes. Then I will aim to make an intro according to recommendations. That will be easier. I will make 1-2 more paragraphs in my 'bio' and then get to it (or maybe contact someone for a quest :3 ) Anyway, thanks again, admin. You and others have been a great help to me ^_^ Now I don't need to ask questions on why this RP site is so successful.
  12. Ah, I understand now. For making non-quest threads in ToL do I need to contact someone? I might have forgotten if rules said anything on that topic. For example, just starting off something simple and plain, as a newcomer, like my character traveling for long and deciding to rest in the tavern.
  13. Ah, now I recall one question I wanted to ask. If I want to participate in a quest in ToL and if that quest is currently ongoing do I have to contact anyone for joining or I just read 2-3 previous posts and... jump in?< I know you need to contact someone when starting a quest and making a new thread for the quest, but not what we do if we join an ongoing quest.
  14. Thank you for that ^_^
  15. (I agree on this one. Quickest admin I've seen on an RP site :3 ) These answers really help me out a lot, thank you. This will definitely help me out with narrowing down on what I want to put in that story for Keto. I was going for a typical anime character- a tiny mean girl who will punch the hell out of you. ^_^ Thank you very much for your answers. I will post again if question pops in my head. And again, thank you both :3
