You remember the words of the strange, butterfly-masked man. You can here to protect a city, correct? And yet... you seem to be nowhere near one. Perhaps he meant that city in the far off horizon, barely seen against a reflecting shield of glass?

Either way, you don't feel safe around here. Maybe it's a hunch, but you need to move and get somewhere safe. Before whatever is lurking around notices you.

The problem is... where should you go?

The teleporter worked!

...Except you're not exactly sure where you landed. Thankfully, you have a map that will update as you go, courtesy of the MAGI. It does appears to be working, so now its a question of snooping around....wait what was that noise?

Make sure you've noticed where the teleporters are located. You wouldn't want to get stuck in this strange outside world...

[☿ Mercury Zone]
You have a feeling that the city you need to protect is not the one in ruins around you. Otherwise, it's already destroyed.

The stench of death is everywhere, from the cracked buildings to the water-logged homes missing their ceilings. Still, it's some form or protection against the elements, and there's sure to be canned food around here.

The cold, chilly air at night gets to your bones, but during the day, the hot weather makes you seek shade.

[♀ Venus Zone]
There is forest all around you, the trees hiding most of the sun. What you an see, the crystal-like shell of the barrier (not that you know it's a barrier) to Hinoto-Ri spans high into the sky. There's nothing to restrict your view here, otherwise. The climate is surprisingly warm if humid.

Maybe you should try to get out, or build a shelter. Either way, best not to stay too long before something finds you...

[♂ Mars Zone]
It's hot. Way too hot. You look around, with nothing but sand and dry bones scattered around you. not to far the sand dips inward, cracks of shining crystals that turn out to be salt hinting that this may have been a bit of salt water before everything evaporated.

Perhaps it would be best not to stay here for long. Nothing looks edible. There seems to be water on one side, and on the far horizon, you can spot a cavern.

Hopefully it's not caused by the heat. Let's start walking.

[♃ Jupiter Zone]
Giant mountain full of jagged sharp rocks that reach high into the sky rise in front of you. When you turn, you notice a city, but a crystal-like substance stops you from being able to go inside, no matter how hard you try pressing on it.

There's only on area you can go through. The metal and stone bridge that goes right through the middle is interesting, though. It looks like the remains of a rail system. Just be careful where you step, as the way down does not look in any way safe. Those crevices could kill a person if you fell down...

[♄ Saturn Zone]
Snow. There's so much snow. The temperature is cold, maybe in the middle of winter, but it's the winds that snap at your skin, making you shiver. You need better covering. Yet despite the weather conditions, you spot a city in the far off horizon. Maybe you could make it in a few hours. It's better than just standing here, right?

[♅ Uranus Zone]
You're surrounded by pieces of desolate abandoned city, the buildings crumbling but still standing. Skyscrapers, upturned cars, fallen road signs hint that this was once a bustling city but whatever happened to it must have hit hard...

Plants grow around each abandoned area, appearing to have become giants for several decades already... yet despite your worst fears, not a single remain of dead human skeletons can be found.

But something is off. Why is the plant floating in the air? There's a car flickering as if it's glitching. Things begin to whisper in your ear, laughing and giggling. Sometimes you swear you heard something move...

[♆ Neptune Zone]
It's humid, but not unpleasant. A giant body of water as far as the eye can see gently rocks its waves upon the sandy beach. Plants are growing around you, and you can easily spot fruits that are edible such as apples and avocado.

Yet there's an odd urge to explore the water. Maybe you could go take a dip...

[♇ Pluto Zone]
Rocky mountains greet you at your arrival The giant mountain range reaches into the sky, as high as the crystal-like barrier protecting the city, blocking you from being able to go inside.

You spot caverns farther down ahead, but it might take you a few hours to get there. Best be on alert...

[OOC: Hello new and returning characters alike! While characters will not know the zone names, we've provided you with a map to aid you moving around.

Keep in mind a few things:
▶ Pick the zone you want to appear in! It's entirely up to you.
▶ For newcomers coming into via this plot, each zone has a giant red X. This is where your character will appear in that zone. After that, they'll need to walk/fly/swim around. Maybe they'll get lucky and find tools to help them.
▶ For those using the teleporter, the blue summoning circles are where your charatcer appears. These lead back to the central MAGI building located under town hall.

▶ Monsters can show up during your posts from time to time
▶ The zones colors indicate how dangers the areas are. Also keep in mind that once your character hits an orange and red zone, persona and canon powers steadily begin to decline each hour. After a day, they are unable to use their powers until they return to the yellow and green zones, whereupon it will take an hour for all their powers to come back in full.
▶ Characters will be stuck here until at least the 15th, minimum, so feel free to have them move around! It takes about 5 to 12 hours to move from one zone to another in full, depending on the temperature and terrain.
▶ Your character may end up finding items and possessions from their world. Mods will be watching the threads and adding descriptions and items as we go along.
▶ Characters do NOT have their COMP system upon arrival, even if they were here before; everything is stuck inside the city right now! So you do not have a means of communication if you don't speak the same language for now, time to use those pantomiming skills you've been working on (probably).
▶ If a new character crosses someone who's already lived in the city, they will be able to share their watch with them for translation purposes until they return to the city.

▶ We suggest showing up in the same area as someone else to have a better chance of survival. Not that characters will die (as it is permadeath in this game) but the state of the characters until next week when rescue begins may be less... healthy than others if you throw caution in the wind.
▶ This being said, we won't make life too hard for you. If we see your character struggling, we'll provide them with something so they don't die two days into exploring either.
▶ There are surprises and clues waiting in certain areas.
▶ Please have fun, and enjoy the game!]

[ This was not what he'd had in mind.

First, he was whisked away from his homeworld to Hinoto-Ri by some strange person in a butterfly mask, and spent a year figuring out that maybe he rather liked not being in his homeworld. Then people had left and he'd felt guilty about having enjoyed it so much, and wished he were home again. And then he'd been home a month, and realized he wanted to go back.

He couldn't win.

And then he thought he'd be back, thanks to that masked person, and he found himself here.

He really, really couldn't win, could he!

At least he'd been too tired when he went to bed, to take off his makeup. A look in the lake's water, to see that his hair was back in its usual tight little ponytail, and then he got the heck away from it before he had any further suicidal urges. Pfff, go swimming. What next, play with a bonfire?

The sand, though.... he'd have to remember that, when he wanted a proper bath again later.

For now... figuring out where the heck he was this time, since this wasn't the city he'd been expecting, was what he'd do. He looked around, stretching up to get a better view, and then settled back down again with a sigh. Time to walk... and he didn't even have his sandals. Lovely.

If anyone comes across him, they might find him picking at some of the fruit curiously, but he's mostly just wandering around, exploring. Clearly, someone with wings wouldn't be lost and stay on the ground, right?

Pluto Zone Rescue | Motochika, Mitsuhide, Takakage

[personal profile] behisstrength 2014-06-17 12:02 pm (UTC)(link)
[While it has been a difficult stream of days, Motochika and Mitsuhide are surviving -- not comfortably, but stably. They have acquired necessary resources that are lasting thanks to carefully balanced rationing, and they have had periodic rest, sleeping back to back. Weariness is an ever-present companion, but at more managable levels than before. Relying on each other has brought them this far, and has been an invaluable defence against the cold.

Now they are back out in the open again, having navigated the full length of the caverns. Keeping in motion until they find a settlement is their priority. The chilling scream that hurried them into the caverns remains at the back of Motochika's mind as he walks, keeping him on-guard, but the simple truth is that they cannot survive indefinitely like this and so the danger is a risk that they have no choice but to take.

With his volume low enough that it doesn't compromise their awareness of their surroundings or draw unwanted attention, Motochika hums portions of a fresh composition to Mitsuhide, getting his friend to chose between small segments one by one then connecting them together. It is a small game to help to bolster their spirits and distract from their bodily aches and low-level but lingering hunger.]

Which do you choose now?

[He queries, before presenting two rather outlandish options while wearing a smirk. His gaze, however, remains sharp and continuously scans the horizon.]
