    Waterstrider turns back to the corpse and begins beating at it with his fists and claws, tearing out massive chunks as he works out his anger on it. He doesn't think, unable to do so for now, and the sight of it fills Pathfinder with sorrow. The Shaman shakily makes his way over, a dozen feet away before speaking up. As soon as he even begins, Waterstrider shoves him to the ground with great speed, pinning him and breathing heavily as he raises a claw, ready to lash out. Only when Pathfinder looks right into his eyes does it cause his brother to pause. Slowly, the animalistic fury begins to fade as recognition enters his mind. The paw comes down, but instead of in anger, Waterstrider pulls his brother into a tight embrace, weeping as his form begins to settle down to it's original size once more.

    Jit notices her reaction and decides not to press the issue.
    Like I said, pain changes what's in control. Me, or the beast I created.
    The energy claws die out.

    (it's turned back to a whip)
    Silver struggles to stand up without the use of her hands and barely manages to stay on her two feet but she eventually makes her way up.
    "C-can you grab my whip and put it in my pouch please?" She asks, slightly embarassed.

    Jit moves to pick up the whip. Barring any interference, he'll then put it in the pouch.

    As Jit opens Silver's pouch he sees the head of her student and several thick books. All of which have a plain black cover.

    Jit doesn't seem to surprised. Plain black books and severed heads are part of the voodoo package.
    So, earlier you said something about the hunting grounds. What's the deal with that?

    "I'm not entirely sure...It was said to be created by a deity. The fact that we're here shows that we have to prove our worthiness to her. The hunting grounds are famous and well known in Nexus but there are very dangerous creatures that lurk this area and she expects us to defeat them with ease. That is why I'm trying to get out of here as fast as I can but unfortunately my sense of direction is horrible."

    "Well it's where I was originally born. I lived next to the river on the outskirts of town but it was just a twenty minute drive to get to the city. My parents would always go to a place called Trog's Tavern but before they did they would drop me and my sisters at our friends house...I remember once going into Trog's Tavern. It was very busy and there were so many races that I had never seen before. It was amazing...if only I could go back there..."

    Lightning strikes the earth a short distance away, a bow is left, large enough that Waterstriders enraged form could have wielded it easily, though the Welfen would have trouble wielding it normally. Despite this, its massive size lends itself to being able to shoot arrows with extreme power. underneath is an ornate carving knife, enchanted in some way. if picked up, it'll reveal that it can shape to any given length the wielder wants.

    The two brothers don't say anything to one another, as words weren't needed for the moment. The scents of love, loss, fear, sadness, and happiness wafting from the both of them explained everything they needed to know to one another. Slowly, the two proceeded to scavenge their equipment, letting their tired and beaten bodies to rest a bit. Unfortunately, Pathfinder's spear is lost, and so is Waterstrider's one dagger, leaving the former with just his two knives, and the latter with a single flint hatchet. Once those were gone, they'd be left with nothing but their claws, fangs, and sheer inner strength.

    Like the last time, they took the time and energy to crawl back into the corpse to find the creature's heart. While it's surely too large for them to eat all of it, they still gorge themselves during their ritual before crawling back out.

    The two ignore the lightning and the weapons, not even pausing to examine them this time before wrapping an arm around one another, providing their brother with support as they slowly walked on to continue their hunt.

    Edge of the Woods

    This place calls to a strange traveler, so far from it's home. The Bogeyman, as it was called by those who knew of it, had been walking for days, searching for a place to hunt. It hunts not for food, or to prove itself, but simply because that is why it was made. It's only purpose is to sow fear and disaster, and what better way than by stalking and killing any who come in it's way?

    Civilization has shunned it, and after a few incursions Inside the Bogeyman realized that it would likely be killed by some rogue demigod without fulfilling it's purpose. Here, however, it can indulge in its blood-lust until it was sated. And that wouldn't be any time soon.

    Standing over eight feet tall, it is a humanoid giant with green-grey skin. Twisted ivy creepers encircle its limbs, winding about it and forming living armor. Its face is covered by a wrought iron mask with no mark or feature upon it, and it wears a crown of brambles. Its arms end in warped metal shears, like giant black scissors that clack together constantly, twitching in time to it's movement. It walks with a slow, loping gait, as if conserving energy for the charge. Its masked face peers across the plane before it, searching for it's next prey. As it walks, the sky begins to darken, and fat droplets of rain fall to the dusty earth. The mere touch of this creature warps the world in strange ways, and rain heralds the coming slaughter.

    It stops, observing the area. Before it, a hilly plane, open to the elements. Winning in that environment would be a matter of speed and good eyesight. Perhaps not the best place for a beast of darkness. But...
    Turning, the Bogeyman stares at the thick woodland to it's left. The trees call to it, drawing it into their dark embrace. Places to hide, shadows in which to stalk it's prey. The Woods it is.

    Without a sound, the monster lopes into the forest, head low, sniffing the air with an unseen nose. Its bladed hands quiver in anticipation, readying themselves to tear through skin and bone. Snip. Snip.

    Silver closes her eyes, thinking of every single detail she could remember of the tavern. It's been awhile since she's been there but she tries her best to remember whilst keeping her mind at ease, allowing Jit into her memories.

    For the first time in a long time, M'Kota of the House Kerpach is active in the wilderness. The half-Klingon has been gone for a long while, but after nursing herself back to health she is as strong and tough as ever. As she walks along the edges of the massive plateau, she unsheathes her bat'leth, and makes sure her disruptor pistol is fully charged.

    As she looks for signs of any great beast, she recalls how a friend of hers stated that they would carve a name for themselves in this new land, and smiles. This place has indeed lived up to the challenge it had declared itself to be. And she is loving every minute of it.

    Oh, he only has to worry about being shot if he provided a scenario where it could be considered something other than an outright attempt to kill him. Alpha's being pretty passive-aggressive 'bout this. Or at least as passive-aggressive as you can be about shooting someone in the back.

    "Hope you're ready to march then."

    And with that they're off, moving at a breakneck pace in the direction Red indicated. This is where their supersoldier modifications really come in handy too, cause not only can they run faster than any normal human, but alterations in how their bodies handle lactic acid fermentation mean they can keep it up aaaaaaall day.

    Red might have to switch from child form to something a little more suited for running if he wants to keep up!

    Red sees the trio march in a rushed way. Red turns into an avian creature to keep up. After an encounter-less journey they reach Boltaria. In front of them they see a great opaque fog and a glowing green sword on stone.

    "This is the entrance to Boletaria. Touching the sword will give you access to our quarry but I have to warn you three touching this will give you a Nexial Binding, trapping us here until our prey is dead. Do you still want to continue?"

    The last part Red directs as a challenge to Alpha, if he decides to leave then Red will know him for a coward. hahahaha.......
