The Great Guild Fortune

Introduction

INTRODUCTION:
In a time long past existed a mythical world brimming with many magical creatures and races. And what bound and connected them all together was their chi: an energy within all living things. This energy could be controlled and eventually mastered to achieve great wisdom or conjure terrible power. Chi unifies all things, wicked and good, for better or for worse.

It is now the year 444 and the Yune Empire has spread over much of the world. It is an empire of conquest, with warfare and greed being the currency of the land. Though founded and ruled by Human nobility it is a melting pot of creatures and cultures, and despite it’s titanic size it remains the most stable entity in the world: richer and more secure than the kingdoms that surround it. With a dynasty crossing it's two-hundredth year, the empire is an ancient and established beast and will forever be remembered.

But all prosperity is eventually threatened. In the north the Empire of Ashura, a mysterious race of great power and ability, have also been expanding, and the two empires now find themselves nose to nose. War has erupted, and for the last six years the empires and their satellites have fought over land, sky, and sea. Armies clash and combatants on each side utilize their mastery of chi to fight.

Though the rest of the world has been coated in blood and iron the chaos of war has not yet reached the Yutan mainland, which is good, for amidst it all Yuwen Fortune rides for the port village of Poyo in hopes of recruiting warriors. He is on a quest for riches and glory- but he needs a team. And he’s desperate. Adventure awaits the future members of the Great Guild, they've only to join…



THE GREAT GUILD FORTUNE:
The Great Guild Fortune is a fantasy RP set in a fictional world and based on Asian mythology and culture. The Great Guild Fortune is a highly cooperative roleplay and requires lots of communication in group chats and on discord. This thread is a reboot of the The Great Guild Fortune (2014), and the opening acts will follow some of the same story beats and plots as the original thread. It was primarily designed for the members behind threads like Lords of Rock and Hadean. If you think you'd like to join submit a character or message me! We're happy to have new members come in and join the story.

THE STORY SO FAR:
Day 1 - 1st of June, 444: The village of Poyo is a peaceful community of farmers and fishermen, and it receives a great many travellers for it is one of the only ports along the northern river Gan. In hopes of recruiting travelling warriors from the north heading to the Imperial City of Yuna-Yae a young man of mixed blooded nobility rides for the village. Yuwen Fortune is his name, and he arrives at dusk to find the village celebrating the Emperor’s birthday.

CHARACTER CREATION:
Whether your character is a local who has lived in the village their entire life or a warrior passing through for the night, when our story begins your character find themselves in the village of Poyo for one reason or another.

RACIAL PROFILING:
Ashura
ImageDescription: The Ashura are a tall, blue skinned people. With six-arms and muscular builds they present quite an imposing presence. Their faces are long, straight and defined like sculptures. They typically have pitch black hair and colourful eyes. The Ashura have great physical strength and are a highly intelligent race. They live an average of 80 years and stand between 7 to 8 feet.

Culture: The Ashura are an ancient species and see themselves as an enlightened and majestic race, superior to all others. Their culture, though an empire based on trade and conquest, puts education at its forefront and has a concept of constant improvement. Be it physically or mental, the Ashura always pushed further perfection. They are the founders and masters of Chi Augmentation, used to both physically and mentally enhance their bodies. They are also the founders of necromancy, discovered in attempts to achieve immortality, though its use is now widely outlawed across the world.

Humans (Yune, Gwanish, Sunen, Byeonsu)
Description: The physical appearance of Humans range considerably depending on origin, though they all generally stand at 5 to 6 feet tall. Yune humans come from the land of Yutan and have flat faces, dark hair and folded eyes, with skin tones ranging from pale to brown tanned. Gwanish come from Gwanalai, and physically resemble the Yune humans save for darker hair, shorter stature, softer, rounder features, and more colourful and curly hairs. The Sunen humans have long, hard features with more open eyes and tan to brown skin, from their desert heritage. The Byeonsu humans resemble the Yune humans with paler skin and harder features. Humans live an average of 100 years.
Culture: Humanity has its origin based in unity and discipline. They were the first to focus their Chi in battle and use it as a weapon. But since their beginnings Humanity has been separated and divided, and their culture with it. The Imperial culture of the Yune humans is class and capitalist based: the importance of nobility, money, and honour the most important things in the empire. Racism and sexism are also ingrained in noble Yune society. In contrast the Gwanish humans are birthed from war and being a fighter or warrior is the most important thing in their tribal kingdoms and societies. The Sunen humans are honourless, the harsh conditions of the desert teaching that coin and happiness take priority over anything else. The Byeonsu humans are healers and growers, focusing their chi on communal preservation and growth.

Oni (Fire, Snow)

Description: The Oni are a large, horned race standing at 6 to 7 feet tall. Their faces are large, their teeth sharp, and their bodies more curvaceous and muscles than the average humans. They look genetically hardened in comparison to the other races, as though they physically came from the earth. Their skin’s range in different hues of reds, blues, greens, purples, oranges, and browns, with the Fire Oni from the Hokoru Islands typically having softer features and warmer skin tones and hair and the Snow Oni from Onium having harder features and colder, darker skin-tones. They live an average of 120 years.

Culture: The Oni base their cultures on the Earth, their religions worshipping it and their society built upon working with it’s power. They were the founders and the masters of Elemental Chi, using their inner Chi to tame and control the elements for their own use. But time and war have drifted the Oni apart. In the south the fire Oni fight among themselves in tribal wars and in the north the Snow Oni try to raid and enslave the world with their empire. The constant fighting has engrained a philosophy into the Oni: life is cruel place, and though they have great power it can lead to great destruction. The power they have must be used carefully to ensure their enemies are destroyed, but the destruction does not spread beyond that. This logic is the key to modern Oni culture, and leads to them having some of the most tactical and thought out warfare of the current age.

Goblins
Description: The Goblin’s are a short race of creatures standing an average of 3 to 5 feet tall. They have greenish skin varying in hues from warm yellows to deep cyans, with large ears and eyes of bright, piercing colours. They have thin, agile bodies good for scampering and climbing, and typically have dull brown or black hair. They live an average of 120 years.
Culture: The Goblins were once called the Dokkaebi and came from the earthen mountains where they remained unseen for ages. In the earth they developed an unusual lust for riches and gold, its touch like catnip to them. When the mountains were mined by the Snow Oni three-hundred years ago the Goblins and their obsession were discovered, and soon the Oni manipulated them into becoming servants and eventually a race of slaves. Exploited and taken away from their original nature, the original goblin language was lost to time. After a few generations the goblins revolted against their Oni lords ran off into the Byeonsu wetlands south of the mountains, where they started a civilization anew within the swamps. Their obsession with gold remains, though much more subdued in the modern age.

Tengu
Description: The Tengu are a lanky race of red-skinned winged men standing an average of 5 to 6 feet tall. They have well defined features, long, human-like noses and large smiles, as well as two feathered wings coming from their backs, allowing them to fly. Their hair and eyes are bright and colourful. They live an average of 100 years.
Culture: The Tengu birthed the concepts of democracy and have been a peace-loving people throughout their history. Their mountains in Tengala were a safe haven, unreachable outside of flight and guarded not by armies but instead clans of trained Tengu warriors. In their meditations the Tengu managed to manipulate the world around with their Chi, and created the art of Telekichisis. But peace would not last, for the nations around them advanced more and more, until they too could scale the mountains of Tengala. And with them came chaos. War and conquest have now scattered the Tengu across the land, their flight making them agile travellers, and those who remain in the mountains are very defensive and battle worn as war continues to rage. Though now untrusting and hostile to outsiders, the Tengu remain a spiritual and fun loving people to their own kind. 



Image


Beast-Men (Askian, Gwanish)

Description: Unlike the other races the Beast-Men are not a single species but hundreds part of the same genetic family. Humanoid animals, from tortoises to leopards, from wolves to lizards, Beast-Men vary as much as the animals of the wilds do and range in size and appearance equally. They live an average of 100 years.
Culture: Beast men culture varies from tribe to tribe and species to species, based on what animal they are, where on Gwanalai or Askia they are located, and what their history is. Warm weather beast-men tend to come from Askia while cold weather beast-men come from Gwanalai. Beast-men have spread widely, and with their massive numbers they are a common sight across the land.

THE NATIONS: The world has nine major nations listed below, and various smaller tribes and societies.



The Yune Empire - A massive empire based in the land of Yutan. They have conquered many civilizations and are one of the richest nations in the world, with societal organization and a strong navy being key aspects to their prosperity. The empire is ruled by the Emperor and strictly human nobility beneath him, though it's peasantry consists of all races. Slavery is legal, but only Beast-Men and Goblins can be legally enslaved, the other races considered "too human", though the true reasons over which races are and aren't slaves are forged by political concerns. They are currently allied with the Empire of Hokoru and at war with the Empire of the Ashura, the Kingdom of Hui Lake, the Kingdom of Teng, and, in certain places, the Empire of Onium, as well as various other tribes and rebel factions, particularly in their conquered provinces.



Kingdom of Yeuxkyen - An island nation of Gwanish humans who currently maintain an uneasy peace with the Yune Empire and the Empire of Onium, both of which have recently invaded and conquered parts of their island nation. Following a long war and subsequent invasion by the Yune Empire the Yeuxkyen tribes reached a peace agreement, though how long it will last on the unstable island is unsure. It is ruled by the King of Yeuxkyen and the lands beneath him are ruled by warrior chieftains. Slavery is illegal in the Kingdom of Yeuxkyen save for Oni, a law passed as a direct response to the Oni invasion of the island's north. They are currently at peace.



Kingdom of Gwan - A nation in the lands of western Gwanalai formed by a unification of Human Gwanish tribes. They are a fierce battle-bred society that have won nearly every war they have been a part of, and constantly terrorize and pillage the unaffiliated villages and unprotected lands surrounded them. This has caused a wide array of hostile relations for the kingdom, and it is generally considered barbarian and uncivilized by the other nations. They are ruled by the Queen of the Gwanish and the lands beneath her are ruled by warrior chieftains. Every race can be legally enslaved in the Kingdom of Gwan, though it is rare to see a Gwanish human in servitude. They are currently at war with the Empire of Onium, the Kingdom of Hui Lake, and the Empire of Hokoru.



Kingdom of Hui Lake - A small nation of Goblins in upper Byeonsu. It is a trade based nation, and its bog towns are bustling with illegal deals and activity. The Goblins have had a long-time hostility toward the Snow Oni who originally enslaved them, but following the recent conquest of lower Byeonsu by the Yune Empire they agreed to ally themselves with their former Oni masters. The King of the Goblins, who is immune from prosecution, rules over the lands with nobility and peasantry beneath him. Slavery is legal in Hui Lake for all races, though Goblin's enslaving and selling other Goblins is most common. They are currently allied with the Empire of Onium and at war with the Yune Empire, the Empire of the Ashura, and the Kingdom of Gwan.


Image


Kingdom of Teng - A new nation formed following the surprise invasion of Tengala by the Yune Empire. The Tengu, a normally democratic and decentralized people, sought leadership in light of the war. One of their wise women took the opportunity and declared herself Queen. The Kingdom of Teng is focused on surviving and defending themselves in their war-torn mountains. There is the Queen and the populous under her with no other social class. Slavery is strictly illegal. They are currently at war with the Yune Empire and the Empire of the Ashura, as well as the rebel Tengu tribes that rejected the newly established Monarchy.



Empire of Onium - An ancient empire formed in the frigid north by the ice wielding Snow Oni. From their conquest of the goblins to their invasion of Yeuxkyen, Onium history is steeped in invasion and raiding, though trade and naval ingenuity have been equally crucial to their success. The Emperor rules with absolute power though the council of nobility beneath him can challenge his decisions. The slavery of Beastmen and Humans is legal. They are currently allied with the Kingdom of Hui Lake and at war with the Kingdom of Gwan, The Empire of the Ashura, and in certain places, the Yune Empire.



Empire of the Ashura - Little is known about the Empire of the Ashura, though it is said they rival or outdo the Empire of Yune in almost every way: from military size to lands conquered. The empire is ruled by an emperor, and there are several social classes beneath them, though there appears to be more safeguards and democratic decisions in the system than in many other nations. Slavery is legal but which races are subject to it remains unknown. They are currently at war with the Empire of Yune, The Kingdom of Teng, the Empire of Onium, and the Kingdom of Hui Lake.

Empire of Sune - An old kingdom built in an old land, the Empire of Sune is supported by trade and the mercantile exports of the valuable minerals abundant beneath the desert sands. Over the years the empire has secured itself with a strong military and a policy of total neutrality in relation to the other nations, maintaining them all as constant trading partners and ensuring that Sune has always prospered. This changed with the Ashuran invasion, the first successful breach of the Sune mainland. The Sune defence was strong and eventually the war became a stalemate, both sides agreeing to a temporary truce. Since then the Sunes, while still remaining neutral, have set policies to aid the Yune Empire over the Ashurans in hopes of weakening their foe enough to reconquer their lost lands. The emperor rules with many lesser kings beneath him, and nobles beneath them. Slavery of all races is legal as is polygamy. They are currently at peace.



Empire of Hokoru - A nation spanning across Hokoru’s largest island; the Fire Oni's empire began as tribal allegiance and still mainly operates as one. The empire has little control over the land and mainly deals with international affairs, while each King beneath him rules their tribe like separate countries. Still, the rich land of the Hokoru islands has made the empire a prosperous nation, and the empire’s combined force would grant it an army and navy more powerful than their northern cousins in the Empire of Onium. Slavery is illegal. They are allied with the Yune Empire and are currently at peace.

ImageTHE WORLD: The world consists of eleven lands, listed below.



Yutan - Homeland of the Yune Humans. Yutan is geographically diverse and massively populous. The eastern coast of Yutan is rich with flowing waterways, forests, and jungles, while the west is covered with deserts and dry plateaus. It is a generally warm province and winter does not last long, snow being a rare occurrence everywhere outside the mountains in the north. The Yune Humans have lived on Yutan as old as time can tell and the land is covered in thousands of settlements, many of which have ancient roots and deep traditions attached to them. In it's heart is Yuna-Yae, the monstrous capital of the empire.



Gwanalai - Homeland of Gwanish Beast-Men and Gwanish Humans. The land of Gwanalai is harsh and inhospitable, housing massive rivers, towering mountains, and vast forests. Winter lasts the longest of all seasons in Gwanalai and when it does not snow it rains heavily. The ancient forests of Gwanalai were home to tribes of Gwanish beast-men who lived in isolation until Gwanish humans migrated to the land from across the Full-Moon Sea. It was a violent migration and set the tone of hundreds of years of Gwanish history to come. Gwanalai has no ancient settlements, most of its towns being along rivers and newly made out of stone or wood as they are so frequently rebuilt and reconquered. There is also magic hidden deep within it's borders, and lots of creature unimaginably to most.



Tengala - Homeland of the Tengu. The coasts are mainly cliffs as the entire land of Tengala is elevated, covered by the highest mountains in the world and housing massive steppes between them. Tengala has a very balanced climate, rarely shifting from extremes and maintaining a cool temperature. Snow is common on the peaks of the mountains and lower down it rains often. The Tengu were born from the land and the ancient cities built across the mountains are very inhospitable for those who cannot fly.



Sune - Homeland of the Sunen Humans. Sune is ancient and filled with desert. Sand covers the land though rocky mountains filled with great gems and riches are sprinkled across the dunes, and greenery and rivers sprout from the coasts. The climate stays the same in Sune year-round: burning hot in the day and freezing cold at night, sprinkled with chaotic sandstorms. The Sunen Humans have been around as long as the Yutan, and both trace back to ancient history. From the great cities to the smallest of tribal settlements in the desert, almost everything in Sune is made of stone and sand.

Kakan - Homeland of the Kakan Peoples. The land of Kakan is a wasteland bloodied with disease and savagery. Covered in desert and rock, bordered by imposing walls of mountain, and with the only greenery being the sparse thorn forests in the south, Kakan is not suitable for life of any kind. But it's filled with it. Beneath the rocks water flows and so for as long as time can tell peoples of all races have come to forge a life in Kakan, making it once a rich and populous farmland. That was before the deathly Kakan plague hit, which eventually forced the Yune Empire to build a giant wall between Kakan's two largest mountains in the north, cutting the land off from the rest of the empire completely. Now Kakan is filled with disease and violence forged from the need to survive in the harsh wasteland.



Byeonsu – Homeland of the Goblins and Byeonsu Humans. The lands of Byeonsu are vast and spotted with hundreds of lakes, bogs, and rivers, and are crowned by rocky peaks along it's northern borders. The skies above Byeonsu have almost constant rain or clouds, with sunny days being a rarity. The human inhabitants of Byeonsu live in wooden settlements on high stilts atop flowing, reed-filled lakes, bogs and paddies. The goblins live in more naturalistic environments, their houses built within trees and in swamp huts.

Askia - Homeland of the Askian Beast-Men. Warm beaches line Askia's northern shore followed almost immediately by vast jungles. The great rainforest of Askia stretches along it's entire shoreline far into the south, with savannah and warm dry lands scattered within it's borders. The wildlife of Askia is predatory and vicious, even the bugs being deadly. The climate of Askia remains tropical and hot, the concept of snow completely foreign to a native of the land. Though there are kingdoms and even empires further inside the land it is mainly filled with hunter-gatherer tribes of Beast-Men.

Hokoru Islands - Homeland of the Fire Oni. The land of Hokoru consists of tropical islands curving across the Full-Moon Sea. Covered in beaches, green fields, plentiful jungles, and the occasional volcano the islands of Hokoru have rich lands threatened only by their chaotic weather. The temperature remains warm though tsunamis and storms constantly threaten the communities built there. The Fire Oni lived on Hokoru as long as history recalls, and most of their settlements are built near the highest points of the islands, away from the coasts threatened by the sea. The Fire Oni often considers volcanoes and other sources of fire sacred places and they have vast temples and cities built near them.



Image


Onium - Homeland of the Snow Oni. The land of Onium is a freezing ice covered mammoth of earth. Littered in snowy mountains, icy lakes and rivers, tundra valleys, and rocky coasts, Onium is the coldest of all the known lands. Its temperatures are typically below freezing and the snowfall is constant. Onium is the birthplace of the Snow Oni who live mostly in the south of the land, by the waterways, valleys and coasts where they've built mighty fortresses and cities of stone and ice. The north has small tribal fortresses scattered throughout it's landscape. 


Vahira - Homeland of the Ashura. The land of Vahira is a hostile and unwelcome place for humans, and so little information on it is known. The Ashura have a great civilization and have thousands of settlements across their large lands, their capital apparently rivalling Yuna-Yae for size.



Otoro - Unexplored land beyond Kakan. It is unpopulated and few explorers have returned from its depths…

"From the words of a dead man deep in the frozen north," Yuwen replied grimly to Suiken as they walked down the passage. "Not far from your homeland, I'd imagine." Yuwen spoke with a smile, but there was something in his voice that made the Snow Oni uneasy...

Yuwen continued down the passage without bothering to explain how he had managed to escape the "bandits" in the swamp, or how he had managed to fabricate a report and slip it to Poyo's mayor in the twenty minutes it took him to arrive from the North-gate. It was flustering, but Yuwen obviously wasn't alone on this heist. The Monkey-man at least was working with him, perhaps everyone who had volunteered him their blade before the explosion.

Most of them seemed perfectly at ease around Yuwen, even though he was more suspicious than a two-tailed cat in a graveyard. She had to assume it was a show of duplicity, rather than idiocy; he was not a stranger to them, and their meeting down here was far from coincidental. Making sure that she was at the back of the group, Ginchiyo reluctantly followed the strange charlatan and his "associates."

"Dofuzi?" Snorting, she continued, "Dao Dzu, his senior, laid all the foundation for his work, the only reason we talk about Dofuzi is that he has a catchier name."

Xanth's expression went from forlorn and lost straight down to hostile as she glared after Yuwen. People just couldn't hold themselves back from making such comments, but knowing they meant well didn't make it any less exhausting. She made a flurry of colourful, weaving gestures in his absence to assure herself of her own voice. The dog nuzzled his head into her chest and she petted its head, when he wormed his snout into her palm and began snuffling. Xanth quirked a brow. The dog sniffed at the scrap of cloth from the Tengu bandit still stuck to her palm. His wet twitching nose traveled away from her hand, down to dirty street - then he took off. Xanth leapt up, letting out a screeching whistle that the dog didn't heed, then dashed after him and jumped upon his back. She wrapped her arms around its meaty neck right before the dog jumped into the hole.

A whimper and a crash announced the presence of the woman and dog to the party. The dog quickly got over his painful landing and hurtled ahead with his nose glued to the ground. Xanth, dumped unceremoniously into the scene with no knowledge of the prior discussed plot, gave the crowd an odd look on her way past as she let the dog carry her.

Yamato made his way through town. His expression fierce, causing all to flee from him. He'd encountered a few town guards that dared to rope him in with the attacking Tengu and he quickly showed them the error in their judgments by separating their heads from their shoulders.

He had to get out, away from the town. He made his way into the underground tunnels after hearing a townsperson mentioning "heroes" going after the culprits.


"Well, it's a wonder the town wasn't simply invaded from below and above. Foolish Tengu, had they properly planned their assault they may have actually made some sort of memorable experience," he muttered making his way into the tunnels.

Voices ahead confirmed what the townsperson had said. "So-called "heroes" eh? Well, let's see what they're after."

The tunnel had begun to get crowded and voices filled the space. She was walking ahead of the others, ears turned back slightly as they all conversed. The obvious conversation of Yuwen's dubious nature had quickly sidetracked into one of philosophers without any sort of confirmation from Yuwen as to his intentions. Lo-Muna found this pretty damning but she figured getting to the chest first would render the point moot overall. With the treasure, she could perhaps bargain with the remaining Tengu for information on...

More footsteps, a hard landing, and someone... sniffing?

Lo-Muna finally turned around to face the group of fools and stopped dead. Her ears pointed straight up and her mouth agape. She saw the small human on top of the massive dog who seemed to be on some sort of scent. Her plan to avoid them seemed pretty dumb now that the human woman had chosen the same path as her. Lo-Muna could feel her heart beating faster, wondering if they were tracking the bearwoman's scent down. Down to the rabbit who had been in the vicinity of the beastwoman. And if she had been in the vicinity...

Thoughts raced and Lo-Muna was fully aware of how odd she looked. She started breathing through her mouth and she suddenly had an urge to preen her nails. She lifted her hand up to examine them, calling out to the group first, "IF you all have time to discuss philosophers, perhaps we could move faster? The Tengu have a lead after all."

"And you..." she began, looking up from her nails to look directly at the poofy-haired woman. There was a nervousness in her gaze as she tried to urge herself to just ask. If she was wrong, she could end the anxiety. If she was right, well... They couldn't catch her right?

"Did you... did you happen to be traveling with a bear beastwoman?"

All Xanth's features grew wide. The whites of her eyes and teeth stood out bright on her surprised face. She shuffled forward on her mount, when the dog's head jerked, catching a different scent. Kaor lingered here, mingled with the Tengu and the scents of new arrivals. The dog's ears flattened and he let out a low growl at Lo-Muna. Xanth's face didn't look so bright anymore. Her teeth were sealed behind tight lips and her eyes narrowed down at the dog. She whistled a few calming notes to him, something akin to a lullaby, and he stopped growling. Xanth turned her head back up to the beastwoman and gave her an apologetic smile. She gestured to the dog, made bunny ears with her fingers atop her head, then made quick scratchy, galloping motions on the back of her left hand. She patted the scar on her throat, shook her head, then made claw gestures at the air, and shook her head again, as she and the dog got closer.

"Ah, understandable. Have a nice day," Lo-Muna said as she walked away awkwardly.

Lo-Muna felt a little pressure on her back. Xanth, who'd gotten close enough to reach out to her, had planted her hand there. Her immovable hand. And her smile was dropped for a look that was less than pleased.

'Where is she?' she mouthed.

"O-oh uh," Lo-Muna felt her heart beating faster as she slowly looked behind her. Out of the corner of her eye, she could see the female's face very clearly. It was not one of mercy. A chill ran down her spine, the very same one the tiny human pressed on, and she swallowed loudly.

"I, uh, I..." she began, looking for some kind of excuse. There was none however. She didn't know Xanth. Lo-Muna didn't even know any of the group in the tunnel. She hadn't even known Kaor. But she knew that look in Xanth's face.

Her white ears drooped and Lo-Muna laced her hands together, rubbing her thumbs over each other. Her bangs hid her eyes, turning away from Xanth, as she shakily responded, "I... I couldn't save her."

"The Tengu... They had secured her. Fortune and I tried to stop them but with everything going on, they managed to take off. I chased after them but..." her voice cracked and she bit her lip. Her nails dug into her skin and she gave another small grunt, trying to pull herself together. "I couldn't catch up. They were too high. Too close to the wall. I slipped.. I lost sight."

Slowly, she turned her face to face Xanth once more, guilt and sorrow clear in the beastwoman's gaze.

"I'm sorry."

Xanth squinted at her, trying to read her true intent, and she was just left with... real empathy. It was bizarre to her to see a stranger that truly cared. Especially when the hand behind her was flirting with the hilt of her dagger. She looked around in bewilderment. Xanth's hand unstuck from Lo-Muna's back to awkwardly pat it. Coming in for the third pat, with a little hesitation, she picked up Lo-Muna's hand and started to trace something on the beastwoman's palm with her finger.

X...

... A...


She wasn't real hot on the writing thing, but Kaor had at least grafted into her memory the lines that made Xanth's name. She folded up Lo-Muna's hand like she was wrapping her name up in it and passed it back. Then she pointed to the both of them, shook the piece of fabric that had been torn from a Tengu's shirt and crumpled it up in her fist before slamming that fist down into her palm. Xanth glared very intently at Lo-Muna, awaiting her answer.

"I love charades." Samyan remarked, curling her forefingers over the tips of her thumbs and striking them together at a ninety degree angle. "She said she hates clothing and you two should get naked."

"Ah, so that's what she said," Suiken noted, idly watching the situation whilst chowing down on a pork bun.

Xanth's face turned red and her eyes popped angrily. She promptly twisted around and ditched one of her daggers at the ground right in front of Samyan's feet. It wiggled like a worm poking its head through the dirt and Xanth made a blur of gestures Samyan's way that judging by her expression couldn't mean anything good.

Lo-Muna blinked at the two idiots before Xanth sent them a little gift, the dagger gleaming in the torch lights. The beastwoman looked away for a few seconds, clutching her massive chest as beads of sweat ran down the side of her face. Was she about to stab me!? the beastwoman thought, suddenly much more relieved she had diffused the situation so quickly.

As she straightened herself however, a snort escaped her. Laughter followed, the pitch of it seeming to vary and bounce around the tunnel as though it were a bouncy ball. As she reached up to wipe a tear of joy, she stopped. She could still feel Xanth's finger gliding across her palm, spelling out specific characters. Lo-Muna's gaze lingered on her palm before she cleared her throat with another small grunt.

"Xanth," she said, hoping she was pronouncing it right (What if she has more daggers?). "I will aid you in crushing any Tengu that remain. Perhaps one of them can tell us where they possibly took your friend."

Getting down on one knee, Lo-Muna bowed her head to Xanth, adding, "I will get her back."

Or at the very least, find out what became of her.

Samyan stepped over the dagger, entirely nonplussed. "You dropped something," she said, touching her right hand to the bottom of her chin before rubbing her thumbs across the fingers of their same hands twice in a sort of shrugging gesture.

Yamato walked the tunnels, the voices of those who'd entered before becoming clearer with every step he took. It wasn't long before he came upon a Beastwoman, an Oni, a girl on top of a large dog, and a woman whose race he couldn't quite place. There seemed to be some tension lingering in the air between them all.

"What a motley crew." He said with a grin, "I trust one of you can tell me where the exit might be?"

As the Tengu had been driven off, Ren watched somewhat helplessly as the bear beastwoman from earlier got carried off. There was a moment of thought where he intended to give chase, but it was already too late. Others had tried, and failed, and his attempts would likely do no better. He felt his jaw clench as he cast his gaze to the ground, forming a silent prayer in his mind, either for her safekeeping, or painless end.

Once gone, warriors from around the battlefield began to charge towards the destroyed tower, throwing themselves down what he overheard was some kind of pit, or a hole? Ren shrugged, and promptly walked the opposite direction. "I guess we're done here. Town's safe, probably time I start deciding how to leave." He muttered mostly to himself, and passingly at Prefect Ro.

Ren walked for a few minutes before the docks and market stalls came back into view, and with it a rather pleasing sight. The citizenry he'd armed earlier were fast at work putting out fires, where directed by the local guards, and a few of them carried off the bodies of Tengu that apparently they'd managed to fight off. He couldn't exactly remember the faces, but he noted very few casualties seemed to be among them, mostly just those who were wounded.

He looked back at the ruins of the tower for a moment, milling over in his mind what was truly the best course of action. Well, the likelihood of being paid at this point was... Questionable. And a roaming warrior needed to eat...

With a sigh, Ren turned around and charged for the tower, and once he reached the lip of the tunnel, allowed himself to slide down with relative grace. At the bottom of the hole, there was no one to be found, but he could hear the sound of voices from ahead. He moved forward, quietly so as to not cause too much of a ruckus. At the back of the group was an incredibly tall woman, with a slim figure and long black hair.

"S'cuse me..." He muttered to her in quieter tone than most of the others. "I'm a little late for all of this, did I miss anything important?"

Yuwen held out the torch, it's light refracting and illuminating off the stones lining the tunnel. He'd heard a few of the conversations, snippets and words, but had not spoken himself. From the distant-growing hole to the town-square more had climbed down and joined. He'd been leading them for several minutes now. He occasionally gave a glance back at the assembled group but for the most part kept his mouth shut. But there was one thought that prevailed in his mind when he looked back. A feeling unmistakable in the glint of his olive eyes. This was a guild.

"This way," Yuwen said as he marched, noting the boot-prints on the ashy floor before them. "We're getting close."

"Sir, I urge you we must go," A snivelling Tengu pleaded as he looked back at the tunnel leading to the chamber where two Tengu soldiers stood, spears in the air: preparing for any intruders who may come storming in. "Sir, the others are dead... we came with a force of forty and only the four of us remain," The Tengu whispered to his leader. "The Emperor must have known. Why else would this village house so many mercenaries?"

The leader, an elderly, grey bearded Tengu shook his head slowly. "No one knew, Shinji... we were simply unlucky." The leader reached forward and placed his hand on a door at the end of the chamber. His long fingers traced the stone carvings until they reached a mechanical key-hole. "...It seems this chest needs a key," The leader whispered, before raising his hand. The honey stones built into the stone began to glow, as the statue above had earlier. Then they abruptly burst into flame. The burning disappeared after a second, and the smoke a second after that. The rock door was damaged, bit it still stood. "...for I cannot open it with force."

Suddenly a sound echoed from the passage. The leader glared at his assistant. "They've arrived."

The assistant nodded and began to move with the other two Tengu back toward the pit entrance. The leader swallowed. "It needs a key..." He repeated to himself before raising up and flying toward the ceiling of the chamber. "And it's a key they will have." His sharp boots hooked into the rock and he knelt behind a stalactite. And so he'd wait, on the ceiling, in silence...
