    Big Game Hunting

    The vixen truly isn't having a very good day. The harpoon bites into the soft flesh of her stomach as she spun to face the car, bringing out a horrible yelp. She twists, biting at the chain. Rather than trying to break it, she tugs on it, trying to yank Fritz outta the car, or at least pit her strength against the car's engine to keep it from driving away and dragging her with it.

    Ow, ow, ow, ow, ow, ouch, ow, ow, ow, OW! With the explosion of the missile, the acrid smell of burning fur erupts into the air. Whimpering, burned and bleeding, the male fox is dreadfully frightened. What the hell kind of mouse spits fire and small, stinging metal pellets?

    Well, a terrified and wounded animal is the most likely kind to attack. And he is no exception. Whichever car contained the mouse with the rocket launcher will be the next target. Specifically the target of a frightened flurry of claws and teeth as the fox attempts to pick up the car in his jaws, give it a hard shake for good measure, and then conclude by tossing it at the others.

    The monolith beetle, like most insects, has an open circulatory system, meaning there are fairly large hollows running through it's body all the way to the brain. This means there's plenty of room for Red to resume slime-form and, as that shape is apparently acid resistant, he won't have to worry about being melted by the caustic qualities of the beetle's fluids either.

    Eating through enough of it's innards to kill it will take a while, assuming Red's not merciful enough to go right for the brain and kill the monolith beetle quickly, but with no way to attack an opponent within it's own body the creature's death is assured.

    Hill Overlooking the Desert; Up A Tree

    Thenadier frowns. Cloud Rams....charging....and he's stuck in a tree....He needs to get out of the tree! But...the bottom of the tree is on fire! Luckily, the tree is a springy palm tree. The kind found in most jungles. He jumps grabbin the sturdiest group of leaves and lowers the tree down to the ground with the use of his magic belt! The belt can weigh anything he wants. It's a gravity belt. He set the belt to weigh just enough to pull the tree down halfway. He waits for the tree to bend down until his feet dangle by the fire burning at the bottom of the tree. He can't step down or he'll get burned. He then makes the brelt weigh next to nothing with a push of a button, the poor tree launches him like a catapult as the tree stands up straight again. Thenadier is flung onto the bottom of the hill. It has not caught fire yet. He lands balanced too!"Heh. Do tha' demon." He'll then crouch down and continue peppering thew hill with fiore bullets.

    Unfortunately for Pathfinder, he lacks his brother's strength, and a growing panic rises in him as he finds his claws slipping from their hold. He gives his brother a look of complete fear before his grip is lost, causing him to fall...

    At this height, Pathfinder had a few moments before the ground hit him to think. He was amazed by how quick the fear faded, and once he closed his eyes, he could even smile a bit at the new sensation of the air rushing through his fur. He doesn't bother flailing about or looking beneath him.

    Call it cowardice if you like, but he simply didn't want to know when the end came.
    The latawiec doesn't seem to notice Pathfinder's fall. Or rather, it does notice that there's one less small creature clinging to it, but the other one remains, causing it pain. After a moment, its movements begin to slow, and its altitude drops gradually. The pain and loss of blood are taking its toll.

In many places, the path is lost to quicksand or over-run with weeds and he must double back to pick his way around. After about ten minutes of exploration, he begins to notice things are subtly wrong. If he looks carefully, he can see faint faces in the bark of the skeletal, leafless trees that surround him. Shadows twitch faintly like living beasts at rest. The overcast sky is choked with black clouds but somehow he can see faint silver stars through them.
    Wenomir grips the hilt of this sword tighly, peering around his surroundings. Looks like there's a danger far greater than a flying, ice-breating fish afoot. He tries to back up onto an easily defensible position, where he can't be attacked from behind.

    As he walks into the cave, he alters his eyes instinctively so they can cope with the lower light levels. So long as there's some light, Mateo can't tell the difference between the cave and outside the cave. But his wrists and ankles are bound, and Mateo panics slightly. His body bulks up, his clothes merge into his body and turn into thick black fur, and he grows large claws on his hands and feet as he starts transforming into a melanistic Kodiak brown bear.

    Hilly Plains

    Waterstrider can't help but watch his brother hit the ground, too shocked for words, but when the thrashing begins to slow, he lets out a howl of fury before squeezing his paws tighter, stronger than he has before. Abandoning the knife, Waterstrider begins clawing at the wound furiously, trying to make it large enough for him to put more of his body in. As enraged as he was, he still understood that the only safe place when this thing crashed would be to be inside it.

    Down below, after his brother has stopped paying attention, Pathfinder's eyes snap open with a gasp of breath. Through "divine" intervention, his spirit was sent back to his mended body. Even so, the process had tired him. He can't help but roll over and go into a coughing fit, getting rid of stray blood that had pooled before his resurrection. With the fit forcing his eyes closed, he doesn't notice a remarkably different thing about him.

    His right paw, was now completely white, claws and all.

    "Cool, free stuff!"

    Red straps the shield on his back and absorbed it so he can bring it out later. He also takes the time to absorb everything he can from the dead monolith beetle, since he needed to replenish his spell reserve.
    He heads out into the savanna and rests awhile near a lake.

    Perfect. The moment he feels the tug upon the chain, the Don kicks off, adding the surprisingly non-mousy strength of his jump to the vixen's attempt to yank him out of the vehicle. He tries to angle the leap so that with any luck it will land him on the vixen's back, but this being mid-air and all, he doesn't really have any way to control his arc past the initial trajectory.

    Well, technically he could have the harpoon gun reel the chain back in like a grappling hook, but as things are that would end with him being dragged through the fox's mouth.

    Elsewhere, the male fox will have a hard time of grabbing the offending car in his jaws, the vehicle having reached max speed with no signs of slowing down and just barely managing to keep a foot or so ahead of him. There is some hilly terrain up ahead though, and with the minuscule amount of traction provided by the car's tiny wheels that will no doubt force it slow down enough to end the chase.

    The three other cars zip by now, the first two aiming a volley of rounds towards the fox's eyes from either side before quickly pulling back to avoid counter-attacks, the third actually trying to buzz close enough to the vulpine for the passenger to stick what appears to be a plastic explosive pack on one of the fox's legs using a powerful adhesive. Risky, but so was going hunting here in the first place.

    Desert ==> Savanna

    Presumably sometime after that fight with the dragon that may or may not have been perma-deadtimed, the triplets pack up their camp and move on towards more hospitable climes. Soon enough the endless sand gives way and they find themselves trekking over rolling hills and dry, cracked earth spotted with small, spindly trees and tufts of buffalo grass.

    The heat stays the same as out in the desert though, arid and oppressive, weighing down on them like a volcanic cloud and making the ground beneath their boots shimmer with trapped sunlight.

    Two of the brothers are on their guard, rail-powered assault rifles in hand and eyes sweeping the surrounding hills for any sign of dangerous wildlife or other hunters. The third seems largely unconcerned with the possibility of danger that lurks around every corner, trailing a few feet behind the others, his rifle still strapped to his back along with the camping gear he carries. It would take a very careful eye to note the slight weight to his right sleeve, indicative of a hidden pistol.

    Red, does not like this. As it seems night was fast approaching and he was a daylight kinda guy. For a bit of protection he uses the carapace he absorbed earlier to make a really dense, hey the carapace was the size of a house, armor around his whole body. this makes him look like a small Kamen rider. He does not see anyone yet and his back is still facing the lake.

    All that flashing light and dance moves seems to do, as far as our knife-wielding psychopath is concerned, is telegraph exactly where What shouldn't be standing when the beam of death comes shooting out at him. He sidesteps to the right of the beam without too much trouble, before swinging upwards with his left arm, in an effort to lodge the trench knife just north of the strange elemental being's elbow.

    Oh, and speaking of elbows, is that a faint, teensy little dancing flame on What's own? Looks like he didn't dodge quite as effortlessly as I suspected. He doesn't seem to have noticed the embers just yet, too busy trying to kill the thing right in front of him, but it could easily become a serious problem if something doesn't put out the fire soon.

That weapon, his shock pistol with the railgun attachment.

    As the holes in his wings are being ripped open, Gordon aims the railgun at the creature's mouth, and tries to blow a hole through the creature.
    Boom. Head...errr...mouth-shot?

    The big ol' mass of flesh isn't really capable of moving very fast, so there's no way he's getting out of the way of that shot. So through the mouth the shots goes, there's a sickening squelch as it comes out the other end, and more green goop starts slowly oozing out of the creature's mouth.

    The creature makes a sort of...gurgling sound. Whether he was capable of really saying anything to begin with in this form is uncertain, but with a hole through his mouth, he can definitely only gurgle.

    Looks pretty unpleasant. There's prolly more goop oozing out the back, and goop collecting in that hole right through the body.

    Unfortunately for Gordon it seems to have done little to stop the tentacles. While most of them continue to furiously riptearshredrend etc etc at Gordon's wings, two of them aim for another...weak spot. One seeks to wrap around Gordon's head and restrain him a bit, and the other goes for his eye.

    Well, there is no way Gordon is going to let those things get his eye without a fight. Gordon tries to bite the tentacle attempting to hold his head, jerking back, very happy that he insisted armor to help protect his eyes.

    And since those are likely only tempory measures, especially with his wings getting badly damaged, he tries to shoot the creature higher up with the railgun, but it will take a little while, railguns need time to build up a charge.

    ((Now I'm not sure about the situation so I tell you what I assume:

    Tovpir, free before he normally should be, now starts reacting. Having something that caused damage to him, even if it isn't visible, makes him use his tal to kill it. (Assuming the demon is gone before/in the attack)

    The demon Rakshasa was already dismissed so he is gone. Grantz is heavily wounded and within a moment faints and falls on his face. Given time he may wake up but will be unable to do anything. that usually happens when you use your strongest attack without mastery over it.

    Decarabia sensing his master's weakening life force decides to go to Adir
    to ask for help.

    "I feel my master is heavily wounded, I urge you to please help my master."
    "Um. How? I can't get to him now!" Adir exclaims, looking down the short pit. Perhaps he could climb down and get Grantz, but that scorpion might skewer him. The stag's close to panicking.

    Red gets thrown forward but with his acrobatics, due to martial arts training, lands on his feet facing Jit. Gashes can be seen on the back of the suit but not much else. The beetle carapace armor is very dense. Red senses that his attacker is not full monster.

    "What's your problem numnuts! I'm not a monster for the hunt!"

    With his childish personality He'll want to get back at his attacker. Red shapeshifts into a cannonball after launching himself towards Jit. If this attack hits he will turn into a slime like creature and try to wrap Jit with energy absorbing tentacles.

    ((The tentacles are gross but easy to cut. Imagine cutting sticky water that easily attach itself. The slime is resistant to acids though not acidic in itself.))

    Serph I have the feeling that Tovpirs last action didn't do anything again. Since both are under ground and Tovpir can't think of any 'normal' human with the ability to do such things, he will go over and end his live. After all the attack did hurt.

    Using his string with the diamond on it's end he tries to impale Grantz. Mainly going to kill him fast since their seems to be another one to handle.

    [Mountain Path: underground]

    Tovpir impales Grantz in the chest. Blood spurts out of the big hole in his chest and his red tattoos go black. For now anyone would assume Grantz, as he only looks like a human with tattoos, is dead. Seeing that Grantz looks dead then I assume Tovpir will go to the next enemy.

    The Decarabia feels a change in his master.

    "My master...... he is gone..... and changed you could not save hiiiiiiimmmmmmmm.........."

    The Decarabia vanishes.

    ((Sorry Murkus think it's better to post since no action really involved your char.))

    Tovpir won't just leave him. Doing such things aren't human like and a change of tattoos isn't as well.He will go tearing the body apart mainly where the tattoos are. it's best to care about such things before there happens anything.

    ((As said Tovpir doesn't see him as a normal human and a color change of tattoo's is strange))

    After that he will go digging away from the corpse. Going to do the same thing he did twice. Sneaking underground near Adir, which he may notice . He tries to impale him.

    ((Sorry Murkus gotta post ahead, needed since I want a bit of character advancement. ))

    Uh..... ok. Grantz body is mutilated. Since Grantz Whole Body has tattoos I'm assuming nothing recognizable is left. Sometime later, when the fight is concluded between Adir and Tovpir, one will find an egg/cocoon object attached to one wall of the tunnel. the egg of course contains all Grantz had possessed and is made up of his flesh. I wonder what kind of reaction Adir will have if he decides to go looking for Grantz?

    Now that her last challenger has left, Catherine is sitting under a tree making a few normal arrows.
    So she doesn't always has to use her barbed ones.
    Looks like she's not paying attention to her surroundings at all!
    It would be a mistake to think that, though.

    With his childish personality He'll want to get back at his attacker. Red shapeshifts into a cannonball after launching himself towards Jit. If this attack hits he will turn into a slime like creature and try to wrap Jit with energy absorbing tentacles.

    ((The tentacles are gross but easy to cut. Imagine cutting sticky water that easily attach itself. The slime is resistant to acids though not acidic in itself.))

    Jit attempts to dodge, but the cannonball hits his leg. As soon as Red starts absorbing energy, Red will realize that is a bad idea. Something about whatever is powering Jit right now is simply foul. As in shouldn't exist kind of foul. As in could be fatal to continue absorbing foul.

    Jit snarls
    Sit still and die, prey!
    And then he slashes at the ooze on his leg. If Red is quick enough to move, Jit may very well strike himself in his recklessness.

    Adir grimaces at the sounds coming from the pit. "Sorry, pal." He says, clearly unsettled. No time to worry about Grantz right now though.

    The stag puts his ear to the ground and listens. Listens until Tovpir is just below him. Then, as the scorpion's tail erupts from the earth, Adir rolls aside. He coughs as the monster's stinger kicks up dust, and then draws his knife with blinding speed. The ranger leaps forward and attempts to drive his weapon through one of the gaps in the creature's tail.

    This is no ordinary dagger, either - it's been enchanted with a spell called Magic Fang. It is especially capable for wounding magical beasts, but whether or not that has an effect on Tovpir is yet to be seen.

    Gordon bites the tentacle!

    He...might regret that. To say the taste is foul would be quite the understatement. It's...really bad. Something that tastes this bad is almost certainly gonna do bad things to his insides if he's foolish enough to accidentally swallow any of it.

    Speaking of which, the tentacle's grip loosens, meaning he has enough freedom of movement to avoid the other tentacle going for his eye, but it keeps stabbing at him anyway. If he keeps biting down, he may well bite through the tentacle completely.

    Assuming Gordon doesn't try anything else before the railgun is ready to fire again, then the creature will have another hole through it...which sadly still doesn't seem to do all that much, though it does look a tad unsteady.

    Nothing seems to emerge. The swamp is as still and silent as it was before the fight with the fish. Barely visible vapours waft gently through the air like curtains. As Wenomir peers around himself, they begin to grow taller, thicker, more opaque. Soon the tall sheets of white and silver mist surrounds him, affording him only ten metres of visibility. All he can see is a short stretch of path and four or five skeletal trees looming up around him. The swamp seems to be growing cooler, too. Uncomfortably so. He may find himself shivering as his body tries to warm itself up.

    As he grows colder, Wenomir will notice the tree directly in front of him growing more and more human in appearance. Maybe it's just his eyes playing tricks on him, but it appears to have a definite two definite arms stretched out above her, which lead into a torso made of beautiful curves that flows into a full skirt. The willow-like vines falling from the top is long, beautiful hair. The tree has a face, too. A face that is unmistakably familiar. It is a woman he knew long ago, and her name is Jadwiga.

His body bulks up, his clothes merge into his body and turn into thick black fur, and he grows large claws on his hands and feet as he starts transforming into a melanistic Kodiak brown bear.


    The siren's lips part in surprise as Mateo transforms, but then she smiles. The smile is not the beautiful one she gave him earlier; it is the hungry, sharp-toothed grin of a predator who knows her prey is beyond salvation. As Mateo transforms, the pondweeds holding him tighten in their grip. They are joined by more and more, which wrap around his legs and snake up his body to tie down his arms. Another curves up his back. It curves gently around his neck like a lover's touch, before suddenly and tightly constricting. As her pondweeds try to choke him, the siren lifts a single finger to her lips and makes a soft hushing noise, as if to tell Mateo not to bother fighting, to make it easy on himself.

    Thenadier frowns. Cloud Rams....charging....and he's stuck in a tree....He needs to get out of the tree! But...the bottom of the tree is on fire! Luckily, the tree is a springy palm tree. The kind found in most jungles. He jumps grabbin the sturdiest group of leaves and lowers the tree down to the ground with the use of his magic belt! The belt can weigh anything he wants. It's a gravity belt. He set the belt to weigh just enough to pull the tree down halfway. He waits for the tree to bend down until his feet dangle by the fire burning at the bottom of the tree. He can't step down or he'll get burned. He then makes the brelt weigh next to nothing with a push of a button, the poor tree launches him like a catapult as the tree stands up straight again. Thenadier is flung onto the bottom of the hill. It has not caught fire yet. He lands balanced too!"Heh. Do tha' demon." He'll then crouch down and continue peppering thew hill with fiore bullets.


    Well that certainly is convenient. The hills barely count as a woods, so the fact that there are jungle trees here is truly a stroke of luck! It throws him into the air like a catapult where he lands to safety! Unfortunately, the two cloud rams deftly avoid the springing tree and continue their charge at Thenadier.

    The fire has now erupted into a roaring wild-fire that will surely spread and consume much if it is not stopped. Thenadier can't see any sign of Mercutio through the smoke and flames, but the ram he was fighting hasn't resurfaced yet so that could be a good sign.

    Meanwhile, Mercutio's player would suggest that Thenadier's use a spell-checker of some kind.

    Well, the idea was to bite the tentacle off, so continuing to bite down until it comes off. Gordon also keeps on trying to avoid getting his eye damage, so it looks like the creature gets another hole in it.

    Well, this is going not so good, but the railgun is doing some damage, so Gordon tries to fire it again. Man, these two combatents are a bit good at ignoring the pain, after all, at this point, both of them have big holes in them.

    ((Yay, foul energy, character advancement time!))

    Red thought that he was in the advantage absorbing energy but as soon as he started absorbing he felt foul energy. This foul energy reminded him of his, former, evil self. Recoiling as if he touched lava the slime instantly catapults away and turns into the child form without the monolith armor. He is a bit dazed, so for the duration of this fight he will not be able to shapeshift.
