Everyone gets a gryphon! [Monsters and Men Quest]

Recommended Posts

Once again, Shishi Raenbush had left her job at Dawn Komturie to enjoy a change of pace and perhaps breathe the therapeutic fresh air of Genesaris' forests. However, she did ignore the rather strong taint of Whispernight on the very air she is currently breathing. The Knight Initiate strolled towards the woods at a slower pace than she was used to while her mind wandered to the events that which lead to this venture. 

At a nearby village, she had heard stories of beasts, particularly a pack of gryphons, which had been assaulting the poor common folk of said village. Her heart ached for the denizens of this settlement and thus vowed to exact vengeance against these foul beasts and give justiice to thoe victims of their savagery. That, and she was offered quite the large sum of money for her trouble. One can say that her heart were in the right place and so too was the will of her wallet whose contents had long since dwindled after her elder sister stopped sending her weekly allowance. 

She had already heard of these gryphons beforehand and was in fact planning to hunt them even without the village's request. Shishi was supposed to help her newfound friends from the Order find an adequate mount for them to..uh..mount. With that in mind, her steps halted and she looked back hoping to catch a glimpse of the latter friends which was so keen to put her in harm's way for the sake of friendship and of course...for mounting.

Instead of the person Shishi expected to see, she was greeted by the quiet rustling of armor, seemingly following her to the meeting point, slowly starting to draw closer as she stopped. After a few possibly worrying seconds, a familiar face showed itself. Irryn's calm visage showed itself as he stepped out of the shadow of a nearby building. Even though it didn't seem like it, he wasn't following her on purpose, just a coincidence that he happened to be there at the same time as she did.
He didn't expect to see anyone this early, most people he ever had to meet were at least a few minutes late, but he didn't mind the punctuality. 
"Good morning, Ravenbush." 
He calmly greeted Shishi, stopping a comfortable few meters away from her.

A little later after Irryn's arrival would come a teal haired man dressed in a black uniform reminiscent to that of a black royal naval uniform. As he walked up towards the group, his golden crest which was located on the top right corner of his chest would gleam and glisten brilliantly, radiating a strange and dazzling aura and energy. His accessories clanking as his teal eyes kindly greet the group with a sort of cheerful presence, a small smile on Kyoku's face.

"Sorry I'm a bit late guys! I had to sort out some stuff before coming here!" Kyoku exclaimed in a kind and cheerful manner as he scratched the back of his head, his cheerfulness comparable to that of a child's.

"Gooood!" exclaimed Ravenbush. She had briefly me these two way back in Dawn Komturie but only as mere acquaintances. They came with Addy the Master Knight to this realm and she knew too little about them. She gestured for them to come closer. "Are we going to stand in line? Or shall we walk side by side?"

Ravenbush would then wait for the two to catch up with her. Once they are set in a comfortable walking pace, she would start her inquiry. "I heard that you guys came from another world. Tell me about that place?"

While she waited for their reply, she would peer into the darkness of the woods hoping her eyes would notice something strange or peculiar. Unfortunately, there was nothing of note. For now that is.

"Hmm.. Where to start, where to start.." Kyoku said as he titled his head upwards, closing his eyes as he then put his right hand on his chin. 

"Well for starters, our world- err, or well universe, has similar principles and laws to this world, we have stars, we have animals, we have humans, we have magecraft and magic, all of that stuff." He said as he returned to a neutral position, facing Ravenbush.

"Well, I believe we should walk in a line, mountain terrain can be unforgiving. "

He answered, treading across the dirt, his shoes digging into the forest soil, quietly breaking leaves and branches, the partial absence of which marked a narrow stray path into the forest, going in the direction of the mountain they were planning to climb.

 

"Right, it's pretty much the same as this one just... technologically setback by a few hundred years."

He added to Kyoku's statement as they slowly reached the end of the forest. Irryn's head twitched violently to the left, his eyes wide open. He froze in place at the slightest out-of-place noise, searching for potential threats.

"Oh," said Shishi. "No need to walk in a line. The fact thay we are actually going into Whispernight tainted grounds."

Then she paused as if remembering something. "This realm have different eras of technology. Out here, we stil got medieval tech. Some places got even older tech like stone age but that's on the farther islands. Just keep on adjusting to the changes in technology. Perhaps even bring back this tech to your world-"

Her words cut off as she noticed Irryn's peculiar reaction. A queer being came scrambling out of a boulder and into plain view and headed for thw trio.

"Eldritch abominations," Shishi spat. "Prepare for combat."

Kyoku, with a calm look on his face, would shift his eyes towards the horrors as he then would swing his arm to the right. He'd open the palm of his right hand as he then closed his eyes, releasing some magical energy as he then used that same energy to materialize a brilliantly blue katana in his hand. Kyoku would then open his eyes as he then swung his left arm to the left, releasing magical energy as he then prepared some spells.

"Right, do your best everyone! Kyoku exclaimed.

 Irryn's muscles tensed up, his whole body preparing for combat against an unknown enemy, something the likes of which he had never seen before. He would have to adapt to fight whatever was there, the best way to do that being careful observation. 
 His knees slightly bent, feet shoulder-width apart, he reached behind his back, vines pretty much snapping his weapons into place. He fixed his grip on the handles, making sure all his equipment was in a position to fight.
 He put his hands up in a defensive position, one blade covering his torso, the other guarding his face.

Budget Brew: The Big Pig (43.5 tix) - ChannelFireball - Magic: The ...Eldritch or not, the enemy creature is still a boar and like all boars, the creature too is prone to charging its enemies. The beast was fast as its body thundered towards the group, closing the distance between them at a rather frightening pace. At a last ditch effort, Shishi had no choice but to leap forward to meet the beast in combat. 

Ever since a certain incident happened way back during the Space Stone Arc, Shishi had long since learned to take better care of her clothes. That and wear tougher clothes that can resist her enemy attacks and keep her nubile body covered all the time. This was also the reason why her older sister sent her the Heaven's Armor as a gift a few months back. With the armor having the special invisible mode, Shishi can wear such equipment without looking uncool. This also means that her arms which moved to meet the rampaging eldritch boar were fully protected. She braced herself against the rampaging beast but she was still pushed back for a few more feet.

"Attack it!" she cried at her companions while she kept the boar's movements pinned down. How long she can keep the boar contained was another matter.

Shishi's performance baffled Kyoku, he did not know such dexterity and strength was possible. Nonetheless, he did not let this thought falter him. Without a hint of hesitation, Kyoku would quickly, using his magical energy, form four magical circles behind him as he then shot four beams of light towards the beast, a single beam coming out from each corresponding magic circle. He'd then follow up by readying and positioning his legs and knees as he then swiftly leapt towards the Eldritch Horror. His speed comparable to that of raging river as he then, with the eyes and concentration of a wolf hunting down a rabbit, readied and prepared his brilliant blue sword.

 With Kyoku and Shishi already combating the abomination, Irryn thought his presence would just amplify the chaos, make the fight more difficult for all three of them. Still, he wanted to help his companions in any way he could. The most reasonable and possibly only option he could think of was the use of a gun. He loosened up his arms, his right hand dropping down to his hip, grasping the handle of his revolver before bringing it back up. 
 With a steady, trained hand he positioned the gun in front of him, his eye aiming down the sights, the barrel pointed somewhere at the torso of the boar. He placed his finger on the trigger, waiting for the right moment to fire as, in an unbroken motion, he tracked the hellish hog. 
 When he was sure the bullet would hit it's mark, he pulled the trigger, the sound of the shot ringing all around the forest. The shot would probably take down any normal foe, as he had learned in his many years of expierience, but this was no oridinary opponent.
 Almost immediately after the shot he tossed the revolver to the floor, holding his blades back up and taking a few aggressive steps forward.

While Kyoku's magical beams of light did not take the boar down, it did weaken its thick skin for a moment. Right at that moment Irryn's bullet reached the Eldritch adomination right at the weakened part of its body. The projectile pierced through it and dug deep inside its side. The boar stammered from the shot and Shishi found her opportunity. With a grunt, she took advantage of that imbalance in the boar's posture to heave its heave body to the side causing it fall down.

"It's not dead yet! Keep on attacking!" Shishi cried as her body also fell from her maneuver. "Kill it before it can stand up again!"

Realizing that the demonic boar was at it's weakest, Kyoku would quickly use this chance to ready and prepare a sword technique, forcing and infusing magical energy into his blade as it shined more brilliantly. His eyes blazing with the determination of a skilled hunter as his indomitable fighting spirit shows, thrusting his sword towards the boar's weak spot. His beautifully blue blade piercing the air like a well placed arrow as he then exclaims outloud. Icy particles following his blade as it's tip approaches the horror.

"Arcana: Sonic Polar Thrust!"

 He didn't see this point of the fight as a challenge, all he had to do was land one firm strike to the boar's skull. With the now short distance between him and his foe, he took the opportunity. 
 He lounged his left foot forward, firmly pressing his boot into the ground to act as an anchor for the final blow. Bringing his whole body forwards and swinging his right arm along a wide arc to bring it down onto the horror's most pronounced, main skull.
