This is the continuation from the RP thread “A Stately Knight Enters Oasis” for those who are going hunting Dragon Hounds and their masters
After several weeks of recovery, Sur Toruns people will finally be ready both physically and emotionally for travel home. In their time in Oasis they have pitched in when they could, assisting with building walls, carrying rubble and the like, but have all declined any guard or war like duties. All carry with them a heavy weight and tend to stare often into the distance.
Sur Torun will see them each off personally, giving each a kiss on the forehead and a father embrace. As the final caravan leaves, it will be only Sur Torun and his two Armsmen, ready for battle and gearing up for travel.
“We are ready”Sur Torun will announce
“Let us hunt and end this menace once and for all”August 9, 2019 at 9:38 am #87674
Flash will walk from the bunking area. “I am ready.” His Guandao was strapped to his back, the katana was on his hip. He wore his new jacket with his older armor over it. The big difference was the look of the armor. Parts of his armor was covered in gleaming black dragon like scales. “Ready to hunt.”August 9, 2019 at 2:12 pm #87683
Dusk strolls up to the group, his brown duster concealing two pistols and his medical bag. Strapped to his back is a large rocket launcher. He lights a cigarette, takes a long drag and then says ” Ayup, lets get a move on then.”August 11, 2019 at 4:31 am #88028
Flash gave a nod to Dusk. “Hello Dusk, how are things going for you?” Flash asked as he gave a small wave. Walking over to the man, he leaned against a nearby wall.August 11, 2019 at 5:32 am #88045
Checking to make sure he has all the necessary supplies and items for a trip like this Dusk looks over at Flash. He seemed in good spirits this morning, which was a good thing. “Day’s nice enough I suppose, cleared my schedule for the day at the office so we can get this done. Think anyone else’ll show?”August 12, 2019 at 2:07 am #88242
Flash gave a shrug, tightening the straps on his armor. “Hope so. From how these guys have been acting around Sparkles makes me think they are a bit stronger then just the two of us, a couple of stewards and an old Immortan Joe looking knight are gonna be able to stop.”August 12, 2019 at 3:49 am #88255
Looking about, Sur Toran will will proclaim ” We leave within the hour! This is an extremely dangerous hunt, I was hoping that more of your vaunted heroes would join us…”
Sighing, he will check a bag of holding, pulling more vials of a strange fluid than would normally be able to be held by the small pouchAugust 12, 2019 at 3:54 am #88256
Coming in from the way of Oasis proper is Kei. With his sword at his hip, bow in hand, and hardened look in his dark blue eyes the young man looks ready for a battle. He’d obviously heard talk of this man and his plight and if these animals were truly such a big threat they needed to be handled before they came to close and started to threaten the people of his city.
“Heard we’re goin’ hunting.” Flash, and maybe even Dusk, can see that their time strained within Oasis has tkaen a bit of a tole on them. There is still a bit of their normal nearly playful tone but it was a little duller. There was less of a spark of happiness in their eyes and it’s easy enough to tell that he was becoming more cinical, losing that light-heartedness he’d had once he felt safe within the fringe.
His life had been so simple before he came here. He had his family and his clan. He did what was asked of him but was still able to just be himself. He was allowed to act his age and be childish when he wished. Such a thing wasn’t really allowed anymore. He had to be a true adult. He had to help keep everything together and put others above himself. It was taking a tole on him that any who really knew him could see. He wore a mask well though and those who knew little of how he was before hand or just had little interactions with him wouldn’t be able to pick up on it.August 12, 2019 at 7:07 am #88277
Flash watched Kei closely as he walked toward them. He had seen this change so many times before. Bright eyed youth to hardened warrior but this one stung him hard. He knew it was partially his fault this had happened. Kei had moved up in his place when the two inside him had formed. Frowning Flash looked at the ground. Every thing he did seemed to just bite him in the ass as of late. Looking up Flash gave a warm smile to the smaller male and stepped forward wrapping him in a large hug. “Hey! Look at you! Glad to see your still alive and kicking.” Flash said in his usual big brother tone. He released Kei and smiled at him with a warm and friendly smile he had not seemed to have since after the emergence of the other two Symbiotes. “Not seen much of ya since the town meeting and even less before that.” Flash would look almost like a different person from what Kei had seen before. He seemed renewed and fresh, his hair was cut short and slightly spiked in the front and his armor bore dragon like scales over the chest and right arm and he had an overall feeling about him that he had not had before.August 12, 2019 at 7:29 pm #88427
A massive figure emerges from the nearby woods – eight feet tall, easily, it sports two enormous horns curving out from its head, and its body is broad and covered in a heavy suit of armor. A smaller figure is walking quickly to keep up with the long strides, looking up at the taller one as they approach. As they get closer, snatches of the conversation can be made out.
“… completely preposterous! My research would have shown if there were any dragons living in this area, and I assure you, my skills have not wavered in your absence!” The smaller figure is an elderly elf, with a monocle and notebook in hand. He speaks anxiously and quickly, as if afraid he doesn’t have much time to speak.
“Calm yourself, Elberen. I don’t doubt your skills, but be there truly a challenge to be had, a fool I would be to let it pass.” The tall figure is- or was, at least – a Beastman woman, but her head is a massive ox skull with no flesh, just two burning points of violet light in place of her eyes. A hammer with an eight foot haft and a blunt head the size of a barrel is strapped to her back, and the distinctive pouches of spell components array her bandolier and belt. Her voice is deep and lilting. The elf speaks again, clearly not happy but resigned nonetheless.
“M’lady, I will await your return in Castle Greymont. Shall I prepare space for a new trophy?”
“Do, Elberen.” With no more ceremony than that, the revenant turns to the assembled hunters and addresses them for the first time as Elberen bows stiffly and returns to the forest.
“A fair day to thee. I am Daisy, oft known as the Knight of Calamity, Stormbreaker, or the Risen Eternal. Word has reached far, and responded have I to the call, of Dragons to hunt. Pray speak details, that I may be prepared for this venture, fair Knight.”August 13, 2019 at 3:45 am #88524
There was a low whistle from Flash as he looked over the newcomer. “Now that is not something you see every day.” Flash smiled and stepped forward to the larger woman. Extending his hand. “Nice to meet you miss. I am Flash also know as Agent Venom but that is an older name, I go by Havoc now, these are the others.” As he finished he pointed up as a tendril of black lifted forming the face of Venom, two more joined suit as all the symbiotes looked up at the larger beastman woman. “Venom, Carnage, and Toxin.”August 13, 2019 at 4:06 am #88525
Sur Torun will look the newcomer up and down, then up again, obviously impressed by what he sees
“You are more than welcome, Lady Knight. Your aid is quite correct, that which we hunt are not true dragons, but bastardized monsters created with the blood and essence of one corrupted. The Hounds can grow large and dangerous enough that a mere few can tear through a squadron of armed and armored fighters in minutes, their masters corrupted souls obvious to any who can perceive such things”
Taking a drink from one of his vials, the ancient knight will seem to grow slightly, his arms and chest filling out as decades seem to fall from his face. With a youthful, powerful voice he will cry out
“It is time! We leave and we hunt! Leave no survivors and cleanse this world of yet another evil!”
Without looking to see if he is being followed, Sur Torun will stride purposely out of Oasis, heading north to where his caravan was attackedAugust 13, 2019 at 6:32 pm #88602
Daisy extends a gauntleted hand and returns Havoc’s handshake, her grip surprisingly gentle for the size of her hand. Her voice, when she speaks again, is anything but.
“Let not your passengers interrupt our progress, or between me and my enemies stand. Death is my reward, fire my offering, and indiscriminate is my ire once roused.” She nods once and releases Havoc’s hand, then turns to Torun.
“Disappointed am I that I must delay an addition to my trophies, but fearsome indeed do these foes seem. My aid in this combat is yours. Let the world tremble – our Hunt is on!” With that, she pulls a horn off her belt and, raising it to where the skull ends, blows a long note, followed by a staccato burst. Replacing the horn, she follows, long strides eating up the ground.August 14, 2019 at 2:59 am #88678
Dusk, sensing that this may not be much of a stealth mission with their new compatriot let’s the group begin to move forward and slips into the invisible realm.August 14, 2019 at 8:26 pm #88912
The small group will travel for half a day before coming to what is the obvious site of the one sided battle.
Demolished wagons can be seen about the road, as well as remains of broken weapons and armor, both high tech and not.
(I’m going to give 24 hours for those involved to PM me here or on Facebook with individual actions)
