Dungenering

 Tobais had brought his pals a long way in a short amount of time.  He'd already Lester a marker here for him to come back here. It was a thick dense wood with frozen soil. A little bit away smoke rose from the ground as the few banita unlucky enough to be chosen for guard duty guarded the entrance to the dungeon. Inside were all sorts of horrible creatures waiting for them. The bandits used an artifact to ward them off as they came to and fro about the place. Only going where they'd already explored. There was a sizeable bandit camp on the third level with  their treasure  often being stuffed in a chest at the entrance to the fourth. Unlucky bandits also got stuffed in there. As they used a spell to keep people from stealing from their leader. Making the normal chest a rather sinister device for those who got caught off guard. However while this was the focal point to feed their friend and earn some loot there was a massive horde farther below that floor. More elegant and brutal traps Laing in wait down there and blind elves to get in the way.

Treading foot steps echo like the bare corners of a room, deaf and dull white and without a colored sound or a pitch to fit a pleasant tune nor a feeling of discord. Casual steps they are. A multi-colored spectrum of a creation-- a doorway opens and closes like a portal of some kind or a door shut and the key tossed into a hole never to be seen. The figure's blue and black garb and the orcid colored furred mantle-- fashioned almost like pauldron's shake in the wind that covered his wake. Honey golden eyes shimmering with life-- a sparking determination that ceases to be broken. A marking underneath his left eye. The sign of the Majin. Glows a bright blue that seems to flow before stopping periodically. Right mechanically hand in his right pocket as his left palming the back of his neck giving it a nice crack to ease any tension. Any worries. He was ready now. Heart and soul in resonance. 

 

Stepping forth. He stands nearby the current crew ready to pursue the task ahead of them. His time studying, experimenting and constant practice brings him here. "Alright. Soon we'll get this shown on the road." He says casually yet a hint of excitement garnished his words that meant a million.

Fire. Water. Earth. Air. Shadow. Four of the five elements, and the power of darkness all manifested into her body, into her soul. One with her as she was one with them. She used them to her will, to her advantage. Fire mostly. But this was because of her tittle. She had appeared, she had appeared through the fear of earth that sprouted, like a newborn flower. She had pulled herself from the tear, as she yanked her left leg last, she noticed the blade in which followed her. She had never stated its call word. She pondered on how it suddenly appeared. Perhaps her own half of her soul was to blame. Shadowbane is a fully forged Katana, reaching the maximum length of its creation. Forged from the bits of its twin. But so different. The blade itself holds a dark glint, a glint that almost matches it's onyx hilt. Holding half her soul within means it manipulates her abilities. Anyone could use, Shadowbane. Though those with pure souls, untouched ones would slowly be devoured by the madness of her soul. Hence why she allowed no one to touch it. Her fingers slipped around the handle, she yanked it from the tear only to sheath it at her side. She faced the male, Leon. He had already been present. From the looks of it. He was excited. Very excited. The total opposite of herself. Opposites attract?

Tobais nodded with glee. " I Beilve Simone else is trying to take our prize. So are we all ready? First adventure in the land of Valucre for you tow I presume?"

He cleared a little path with mechanical like effiecentcy. Yet he still came across as human somehow.  While he knew they could do it them selves it still made things tidy and quite. " 4 guard who wants them?" He said to the two. He could only imagine how many times he'd been through this with how many different people. Some went loud others did it without sound. Some had chose to just bombard the area and kill everything. What were these people liked he wondered. Time to find out.

"I wouldn't mind taking on the task." The man spoke up with confident radiation in his own. Stepping several feet ahead of them both he'd stop. Extending his right hand. A vast esoteric pressure surrounds the area like a radial wave shooting up and expanding in a large burst. Invoking the arcane energies around him via his reserves and ley line's of this new land to him. 'Magick forces seems to be rich here.' A thought came to mind as a shroud of essence circled him with a sort of surging and flaming phenotype. This only lasting 1/8th of a second in three interval's. Only channeling enough to summon his Focus.

As a Mage-- a Arch-Swordmage at that. One of his Focus items being an orb made of ascended magic energies found in the inner planes as this had taken on a crystalline state bits of crystal fragments collected into one place; the center of his right palm that was opened and raised slightly above his navel. The orb finally taking form. Only five and a half inches in diameter with an eerie glow in blue vibrancy. At the core resides complex diagrams and symbols and some taken on a swors formation. The orb would float an inch above his palm as trails of arcane energy flowed about his entire arm; forming a armored like pauldron. Six hiltless Oakeshott 18 swords surrounded his person, slowly circulating at a steady 12 miles per hour. These sword blades contain a myriad of runic inscriptions and similar in color to the focus. 

This being one of his specialty magick types of holding both evocation and conjuration properties, with minor abjuration properties as well. The focus only to increase the feats of his paradigm.  A paradigm is the way in which a mage understands magic and incorporates it into their broader interpretation of reality. Advancing his art of Armament Magic into an what is now considered Awakened Magic. Allowing much more powerful feats. Shown by the potency increase of his arcane energy by several folds. Only to hide that presence to keep himself hidden by really just lowering the pressure. This occuring seconds in time. The youth would then swiftly extend his left hand-- the floating swords would act accordingly to his hand motions in a harmonic-- sentient way. The blades would shrink in size by 1.5 times as the blades would circle his arm before shimmering with a azure-white light as he would conjure a runic formation on the ground that would multiply leaving a trail of it; leading towards the guards. Happening in rapid succession. Raising hisbhand once more ans clawing his palm. The runic formation leading to the guards would unleash and quake silently as a spirling storm of sword blades in a circular formation would release around their positions. Aiming for flesh wounds to cutting vitals in one swoop. Hoping to incapacitate them instantly without screaming of pain. "Well. That takes care of that I hope." Standing by waiting to see what happens. Taking on a cautious approach.

The woman had yet to deal with an welcomed situation passing lurking monsters as she descended down another spiraling stair case as each step that she took that should have produced an echo along the walls threw the total darkness quite them selfies from her red heels. She gave off no sound not even the subtlety of breath could be heard as she continued down the spiral stairs, deeper into the dungeon. One noticeable thing was she seamed to be naturally producing an high amount of mana and releasing it into the air naturally as if it where he sent. Her mana did however carried the light smell of her making the first floors above her smell of strongly of apricots and burning pine as also a bit of snake root and water hemlock that would have a chance to give though who inhaled the mixture of extremely poisonous plants, a light headache.

Setting a heel delicately on the floor as she exited the stair case into a hallway. the staircase exits door was much like an house hallway in design as there was a small space of wall between the straight of the hallway and the door. Continuing walking she suddenly saw eight bandits each taking no time to charge her. She must have looked like an nobles princess or something of the sort for them to carelessly charge at her like so but they couldn't have made a grave mistake like that if only they knew the the where rushing their imminent demise.

Image result for Anime Girls Fighting Swiftly she stepped back, springing herself on the back wall near the door then again she dashed on to the ceiling above them. Shooting herself in the middle of the group she preceded swiftly in few movements she dispersed the group. Hitting them just enough to throw them from the center where she stood they sprawled, thrown to different angles in the hallway all there heads diapering as their corpses fell to the ground. The woman continued as if moving at such speeds where child'

All of her movements where silent and as she touched the men they all had become silent too like it was an infection spread threw touch. While the gif's movements are what she had done, the enemies in the gif aren't the same and that's not what she is wearing. While she is also a bit taller than that I just used the gif to save me some typing. Ill leave the look of the bandits that she was fighting to you guys imagination.

s play, again silently as all her other actions where.

Something moved in front of her path. As a monsterous laugh came from her path.  The dungeon shook with the steps of an electric blue humanoid stepped into her path. Again it laughed. " Suppose I should thank you for letting me roam free again." It said as of its voice were torn between two different worlds. " However I caaaant let you through." Now sounding staticy it laughed once more before flinging a bolt of blue lighting at her. Getting closed wouldn't be very wise as this beast was extremely electrically charged. Almost as if it was made entirely of lightning. 

 

 

Meanwhile--—

" Well that was pretty fancy to watch, he gestured for the two to move ahead. Immediately he searched  the bodies and found the key they used to keep the door locked with that he opened the door into the small dark palce. Blue lighting and shaking able to be felt and heard in its depths." Well shall we?

She silently continued, the lighting passing threw her body as if she was an illusion unaffected by it as the lighting reversed and shot the same path it had come from.

The girl continued walking without making a sound.

    She studied the male, his fancy moves were indeed impressive, yet she shown no interest, though she was rather amazed by the makes swift motions, by the delicate dance in his steps as he attacked and slain their foe. Akari would of approached in another matter, a matter that was destructive. She would go for the next creature to expose itself. She would take on that one, and slay it before it could even blink. Shuffling forward she passed the two males. Making her way into the area the male unlocked

@Akari Sirith as is the standard Val way. Sorry for taking so long.)

Tobais let her lead ladies first after all besides she has that determined look on her face. 

 

The He first floor was crawling with monsterous of all shapes and forms. A lizard looking one tried to take a poisonous bite out of the woman entering the floor. Going for her leg. 

 

On thw the second floor. The lightning beat crackled in furry and tried to let out an electric storm upon the girl.  Eveidently having no effect. Which do fused the creature she should be writhering in agony.

The lighting shot back at the creature as she simply passed it. She had no intention of killing the monster because she had no intention of wasting time. She didn't know herself but she wanted ... no she was beckoned into the dungeon by something that left her in a trans-like state. She was not herself.

Trailing nearby the party he'd keep himself alert. Anything can happen at any given moment. His foci still equipped as the floating blades now shrunk and orbited the crystalline focus. Portraying a myriad of patterns periodically. As the beasts attacked he'd act accordingly. With the beast of the lightning element he'd rush forth. A spring in his step only increase with pushing himself against the forces to burst in speed for a split moment. The air around his form was cut. An echo as if blades clashed against steel or a mechanical echo. The six blades shifted in color until entering a dull black-grey spectrum as traces of electricity discharged around the blades periodically. This being the system of his Elemental Rhythm. With full understanding of the elements themselves and auramancy. He would use the schools of magic of Enchantment and Evocation methods to place enchanting boons on his blades as they give resistance's and elemental force. This being the Tempest: Stormsurge. His blades acting as a lightning rod. The gales of the tempest enhancing his cutting properties by a milestone given good honing and esge alightment he'd cut the lightning course beast in two by the navel and rib area of the body only to then encase the cur in a sort of barrier of swords. A large number of them burst from a runic circle that had appeared as his intentions were met. The basics to spellcasting begins with initial thought. His was to keep the beast at bay as using the lightning resistance of this rhythm-- to keep from any further action. Unsure if his cutting action was effective enough-- being unsure of the beasts properties such as regeneration if plausible.
