Into the Dragon's Lair

⊙ The Gift of Forever
 
Who: Open to everyone who wants to go (along with the rescue teams who do not know they are rescuing right now)
Where: The Overworld
Summary: A Call to another world turns into an unexpected reunion and rescue
Warnings: Dragon Warriors
EVENT INFO: Read about it here if you're a newcomer!

The Dragon Quest
 
It happens in a moment. At first you're sleeping, out in town or tending to a job when you feel something yanking at you, forcefully pulling you out of this moment in time and right into another. For the rest of Hinoto-Ri it will be a simple blink of time. You were there in a minute; the next you are gone, leaving behind no trace.

For you, however, you see colors swirl as you feel the drop of hundreds of meters downwards somewhere you can't quite remember...but feels familiar.

Then it's all gone.

You awaken inside a city that is obviously inspired or could in fact be Egyptian in nature (if you've heard of that style, anyway). Merchants move about in tents and the town's warriors scramble at your arrival, pointing khopesh at you, shouting to get up and explain yourselves.

It is only when they realize you somehow speak their language that they manage to calm down. While still hesitant at some of you and your looks, the town's sultan seems oddly calm about your intrusion, especially when you explain you don't come from this world.

"Then thy mission here is clear. We have met such an individual hence a few weeks ago. However he is long gone from our place, off to search for a way to...contact you, I believe." For some reason, the man's speech was riddled with medieval speech patterns despite looking more Egyptian than anything else. "Please enjoy what we have to offer tonight, warriors. The sandstorm is nigh impenetrable, and there are dark energies to it barring passage. Tomorrow thou art free to continue onward, should fair weather greet thee. There are many monsters that haunt the town outside, but their pockets are filled with the golds which make our currency, if thou wish to trade with our merchants."

OOC Info:
 
(Your characters are currently in a town called Isis, found in the middle of a desert. Currently the sandstorm outside is making it impossible to leave the town for more than a short while away, so you may take this first day to look around, or kill the nearby monsters. Just make sure not to step too far into the sandstorm or you may be lost forever.

The map is here. Isis has the following establishments:
> A Bar which serves ancient Egyptian cuisine. Food is cheap, you should get enough money just by either looking around town for coins buried in the sand (it tends to happen a lot around here) or go fight a few monsters outside.
> Two stores, once which sells bladed weapons, and one which sells simple loin-cloth armor. You will need to defeat some monsters to be able to purchase them however.
> An underground gambling ring (as in it is located underground, part A on that map) where you can watch monsters fight each other and bet based on results. You may earn a lot more money...or lose it all.
> A priestess who gives out fortunes. (You are only allowed to have 1 character per player have their fortune read.)

Feel free to start your own threads anywhere in the city or the land outside! Simply post a new comment below the ones we have posted ourselves, stating if your post is open or closed to certain people.

For now, mingle and have fun. The plot part of this log will start later on.)
tyrantball: (FINAL BOSS POWER)

THOUGHT BOMB'D

So here's the thing: in response to the changes in her heart, Desco's Soul Persona changed as well: from Dragonlord, the Original Final Boss, to Yog-Sothoth, the Key and the Gate.

Yog-Sothoth is a Support-type Persona focused on healing and communications, which means it has the City CommLink ability.

Which is why you are currently hearing the high-pitched voice of a four-year-old girl in your head.

Hello! Final Boss Queen Desco here, checking in with all her vassals! As the duly acknowledged ruler of Hinoto-Ri, she is officially declaring a Rescue Mission to retrieve her vassals that are lost in this world. If time permits, she will also assemble a small force to help her conquer this world and bring it under her benevolent rule! Please look forward to further broadcasts from Desco!

[If Aggie knew this was what was up, she'd... well, she'd react much the same.

Which is basically placing a hand to her forehead and making grumbly noises. Right in the middle of dinner...and she doesn't know how to reply, either. Bleh. Might as well just forge ahead.]

Wake up somewhere strange? Obviously, that means the first order of business is to get smashed. Therefore, after immediately rummaging around town for spare gold (and seeing whether what gil she still had was usable here), it was time for a drink.

There's a purple-haired uh... man? woman? The other patrons can't seem to tell...

...either way, she's definitely having a good time.

cirquedeignis: (frown; wtf)

[personal profile] cirquedeignis 2013-12-07 08:26 am (UTC)(link)
Zioryle should have taken more thought when he was wandering around; the bar was the last place he would let himself get near, but with him still struggling to even get used to Hinto-Ri, and then suddenly finding himself in yet another world, his mind was starting to mix things up.

For a fire-breathing demon not wanting to cause any trouble, being surrounded by flammable liquids was the last place he wanted to be. So when he finds himself in the last place he wanted, he almost gets into a panicked state. He freezes up by a wall nearby the entrance and is extremely tense as he's clearly looking nervous.

paradiseshrinemaiden: (The things I put up with...)

Re: The Bar

[personal profile] paradiseshrinemaiden 2013-12-08 10:39 am (UTC)(link)
Of course Reimu can't pass up Alcohol. She could really use a drink after finding herself in yet another weird place. The problem is money though. Money was always the problem. Even more so because she hadn't been brought here with any.

Funnily enough however, she managed to find some just lying around somewhere while wandering around, and while she wasn't the kleptomaniac Marisa was, far be it for Reimu to pass up free money, even if someone missplaced it. Their loss.

So she's at the bar having a taste of the local stuff, which is pretty strong, but Reimu had drunk Suika's Oni Sake before, and while it was true that hadn't exactly ended well, she still figured she could handle it.

[Aggie is not partaking of the booze. She is underage and it would end badly besides.

She is, however, partaking of some dinner. It wasn't that difficult to find some of the local currency, though she feels a bit off about having taken some coins from the sand...it wasn't very much, but it still makes her uncomfortable.]

Zioryle was never that big on fortune reading. He knew someone from his home world, but they weren't with him when he arrived to Hinto-Ri.

When he's called by the tent, he looks down at the few coins he found in the sand a little earlier, in thought for a moment, before shrugging and entering the tent.

"...I'll listen for a fortune." Why not? He didn't have much else to do at the moment.

But since she has to wait for the sandstorm to pass anyway, she might as well find a way to kill some time. ]

During the sandstorm of that first night, the Visitors, or at least some of them, get a strange message in their minds that rings very clearly.

"What in blazes are you all doing here?!"

Wow, that's probably the second most insulting dream you've ever had.

"Don't tell me he's managed to throw everyone out to here! You can't have all been in the same location!"

Such politeness. Very trusting. Much Q.

Dream Girl was the one supposed to be having telepathic messages in the middle of her sleep, but Phantom Girl could handle these in a pinch. ...Not very nicely, though.
