    (Walking to the Tavern. Since this is a public thread I felt it was polite to give people time to interfere. Time's up, moving threads)

    The pair finally make it out of the Hunting Grounds, and quickly arrive at the Tavern.

    The elf positions herself a fair distance away from the woman before she fires off her arrow, aiming it against one of the woman's legs where the armor is less thick.

    Her next moment is to drop the bow, even if the woman rushed her (which she pretty much assumes she is going to do) if the arrow missed, the next one was probably going to miss as well.

    She wasn't planning to fight the woman, not in close in combat in either case, but she will still pull her spare dagger and retreat away from the woman's sword.

    Red earns an irate look from Alpha, the latter well aware that the shapeshifter's trying to bait him. But even knowing that he can't back down. His pride won't let him, especially considering the previous altercation with Red.

    The triplet reaches out to seize hold of the sword and begin the hunt- Then catches himself just in time.

    No. No need to be hasty. Even if he refuses to back down, that doesn't mean he has to rush in blind. "And what precisely is our quarry?" Alpha asks, hand hovering just above the pommel of the sword.

    Silver takes a step back, her eyes wide with fear at the thought of Jit being contained. She sighs, looking into Jit's eyes.
    "I can't think of anyone who can help you with your condition...there might be someone that can contain you but...he's even more unstable than you are," Silver's begins to get angry at the thought of the person but calms herself, returning her attention to Jit.

    Silver looks at the ground.
    "I don't want to tell you this...but I'll let you decide on how you wish to live," she takes a long sigh then faces him directly, "His name is Binarion. He's part outsider, part human but his family bloodline consists of dinosaur blood as well. The last time I saw him I was a little girl. I have no idea where he could be but...he was taking care of my sister, Erin. If you find her you'll most likely be able to find out where he is but I haven't seen her in several years as well...I'm not even sure if she's still alive after what happened."

    Silver begins panting heavily at the thought of her past and going from the orphanage to the mental hospital where she was kept for five years. She falls to the ground and begins to cry but notices that she's crying in front of Jit. She immediately stands up, her head looking away from his.
    "My family...we were targeted by a demon...Binarion worked for him until he fell in love with my older sister Emily. He promised, he said that that he'd protect all three of us. We were trapped in the caves and there were only two paths...my sister lured the demon into one side whilst Binarion, Erin and me went into the other side...It killed my sister...and it's still here...in the hunting grounds. It's here, we have to run," Silver yells, grabbing Jit and trying to run as fast as she can.

The four are: Phalanx, a demonic form of the spartan way of fighting, Iron Giant, He is taller than the battlements, The Silver knight, a deadly foe and the boss Demon King Allant, even I don't know much about him. The bonus quarries are a red and blue dragon. If its too much for you then we can go hunt gnolls or something."

    Red never knew anyone who ever tried going with him to Boletaria if these three go then he'll gain newfound respect for the three.

    [Boletaria: Armory------> Gate Bridge]

    Looks like someone may have an inkling of the game Demon's Souls.......
    Anyway the party warps and arrives in a sort of armory. One can pick his own armor and weapons consisting of plate mail, bastard swords, longbows, etc. These will be important as I'm sure swords do not need ammo.

    After choosing armor and weapon or choosing not to get any they will be teleported to the castle bridge. If one is attentive they will see that on the right arm they now have a nexial binding in the form of a bracelet.

    Red himself absorbed a few weapons and armor into himself but still wore his Monolith armor, bulwark and a random sword.

    In the bridge a number of shambling corpses go near them and a few far away that haven't seen them yet. On the courtyard a red dragon toasted the shambling corpses in the courtyard and went further into the castle.

    In the bridge there are two paths available: the courtyard and the other side of the bridge where a path lay.

    "Welcome to the dread city of the fallen Boletaria!"
    Red shouts as he dodges a shambling corpses lunge.

    Tovpir's mood raise as he seems to manage to land a hit with his stone claw. Before he can do anything Tovpir has to grab ground. he just broke through the ground leaving a hole where he lands now. His small feets get the edge of the hole keeping him over the ground for some time. The tail swings bored behind Tovpir, maybe the dagger caused more than Adir thought.

    Adir has never been the most patient hunter. When he sees Tovpir steady himself on the edge of the hole, the stag decides it's a good time to attack. But the stag cheats a little - mostly by drawing a pistol and opening fire, attempting to shoot Tovpir's feet and send him tumbling back down his own tunnel. The dry crack of gunfire fills the canyon.

    The shoots hit and tovpir beginns to tumble, but instead of trying to stay above ground he let himself fall down into the hole. The tail following after. Tovpir digs himself down again leaving a tunnel Adir might only be able to crawl after.

    Tovpir first wanted to fight adir top, knowing that he only has a dagger, but after the shooting tovpir had decide to hide again. He isn't sure what the gun is able to do and better hides to think about a new tactic.

    The stag limps toward the hole, still a little winded from that whack Tovpir gave him. He looks down into the pit, once again deciding that it's better for his health if he stays above ground.

    Adir turns and starts to bound up one of the canyon walls, jumping off footholds and pulling himself up ledge by ledge. He starts planting C4 in opportune places, planning ahead. Hopefully Tovpir's still underground at this point.

    Wait we are in a canyon? That's it! Tovpir will go dig up into these canyons walls. He plans to let the walls fall into the canyon. with what he knows of his enemy this should after all give him an advantage or the winning situation.

    This process sure needs time and Tovpir will start a bit away from Adir. If he sense Adir climbing out the Canyon he will stop and react, but until then he continues.

    ((Wait... Is this still taking place within some sub-section or sub-dimension of the hunting grounds, or have they actually warped to another world?))

    Regardless of their precise meta-spatial whereabouts, the brothers are certainly not going to pass up a chance to better arm themselves. Truth be told they were running high on ammo and uncomfortably sparse on actual weaponry, with only what they could loot from Thessalonia to complement the measly combat knives and pistols they were issued before being sent on their ill-fated mission.

    Alpha selects a set of iron-forged knuckles and a sturdy battle-ax from the armory, which seems to him all he'll need to face whatever trials lie ahead and the most that can easily be carried. Armor is disregarded, but after a moment's thought he takes a simple kite shield as well, not really knowing how to use it deciding to err on the side of caution for once.

    First sticks more with the simple blades with which they were given training at Excelsior, clipping two daggers two his belt -one for parrying, one for cutting- and strapping a heavier claymore to his back. Unlike his brother he's only two happy to avail himself of the armor selection, stripping off his old and rather dirty uniform to don a set of chain mail. If there are any firebombs available he'll take a few of those as well, figuring that they're the closest to a grenade he's likely to see here.

    One is least concerned with melee weapons, having been the only one lucky enough to claim a magic blade of his own during the battle of Thessalonia. Instead he takes only a crossbow and selection of bolts, before moving on to the stock of armors, testing and weighing until he finds what he's looking for. A suit of black leather armor is his final choice, nearly as strong as steel yet almost weightless.

    And then they're gone, teleported into the thick of things.

    The sudden shift from armory to battleground surprises them, the unexpected nimbleness and strength of the shambling corpses they find themselves fighting with for their lives more so.

    Alpha finds himself putting his new shield to use immediately, raising it just in time to catch a brutal double strike that might have otherwise cut him down before counter-attacking, bringing down the axe in an overhand chop towards the offending undead's arm. First is right at his back, fending off another corpse with a combination of parries and short slashes towards arteries, major muscles and other such spots that he hopes might be vulnerable.

    One is forced away from his allies though, two dreglings on his heels. With no defense other than his agility he's forced to dodge and duck to avoid the wild attacks of the undead soldiers, each evasion forcing him farther away from the rest as he tries to find an opening in which to strike against his attackers.

    "Is there a safer way to the castle than through the courtyard!?" That would probably be useful if there were. The courtyard is open to the air and by the looks of it, one of the dragon's their looking for has already attacked it once. Getting caught by fire from above would hardly be an auspicious start.
