Cursed Wood

Dark and foreboding, the trees seem older than time itself. Larger than life, and equally as imposing, they stand distanced as if politely ignoring each other. Fog swirls around the bases of these trees, obscuring the earthy ground. Flowers dare not grow in this forest, for the canopy of leaves blots out the sun, and the temperature is stagnantly cool. There is something amiss about this forest.

Larger than life, and equally as imposing, they stand distanced as if politely ignoring each other. Fog swirls around the bases of these trees, obscuring the earthy ground. Flowers dare not grow in this forest, for the canopy of leaves blots out the sun, and the temperature is stagnantly cool. Here at night is is superbly dark, during the day a murky twilight. This is due to the curse of the Crawling Chaos, who blessed this land for all night walkers. A trade route runs through the Cursed Wood, stopping through Verinotte Hollow on the way north to Wing City, via the Abandoned Slums

Occurrences

Shadows whip between the trees. It can be quite unsettling

In certain areas, trees are torn into. Some cuts are
fresher than others. It appears as if there was a brawl.

There is a cluster of strange, strange eggs.

Unusual amounts of wolves can be

The reek of decay was still in the air, bringing a low snarl to her lips. Taking a few menacing steps forward she sought to provoke a response out of the vampire, be it fight, or flight. However, it would seem the latter was the case.

Had she not been wounded, Charles' retreat would likely have provoked her prey drive and driven her to pursue him. But as it stood, she would take her victory. Rising up onto two legs once more, she threw her head back and bellowed out a blood curdling roar that would roll through the woods like thunder.

The message was clear for all to hear. Her claim to these woods had been established, and beware any who trespass.

V Luhan grimaced as he eyed the trees, and the accompaning fog. He was regretting having let himself wander in the woods, despite not really caring about his being too well. He hadn't found much that could harm him, that he knew about.

Skirting around a tree, he kicked a rock and watched it bounce off, into the unknown, possibly hitting another tree. He sighed, shaking his head. He wished something would happen...

He continued walking.

Stalking along Maria paused to lower her snout to the ground, snuffling lightly at the trodden earth.

This whole wood reeked of vampire, a stench she could not abide. The very odor burned in her nostrils causing them to flare angrily. The vampire was the only creature that she hunted for the sheer pleasure of it. Such was the hatred that burned in her veins.

Every scent of vampire drew up flashes of past torments through her mind. Fragmented memories that were difficult to reconstruct, but the pain and the fear were real. Pain she would return ten fold to every vampire that dared tread upon these woods.

Rearing back she threw her head high and belted loose a bone chilling howl. Let it hear her. Let it know what awaited it within these woods.

V Luhan ducked, startled. He was sure that had to have been a wolf, though, judging by the howl, it was looking for someone...

He shook his head, standing straight again. The howl had put fear into him, the fear telling him to run out of the woods and far, far away, but he pushed it back. He was sure that it wouldn't find him, whatever it was, and that it couldn't hurt him.

Maria moved through the woods with astounding speed and agility for her massive bulk, but so long had she suffered her affliction that there was little humanity left to her anymore. The beast within had all but overtaken her, leaving her a creature of instinct and aggression.

Each step had the scent growing stronger in her nostrils and her breath grew heated, thick saliva spattering the ground as she moved. He was so close she could already anticipate the fresh spill of blood.

And just like that, the werebeast seemed to erupt out of the wood to land across Luhan's path with a skid that tore up the earth and splintered fallen branches and tree bark beneath her claws. Rising up on her hindlegs, she towered over the substantially smaller vampire and let out a blood curdling roar. However she didn't attack just yet. But rather, she seemed to be sizing him up as thick gobs of heated saliva dripped from her maw and the reek of her breath filled the air.

V Luhan inhaled quickly, almost wheezing, at the sight of the beast in front of him. He was well aware that air was not needed to keep him alive, but, out of almost human instinct, he started breathing in and out quickly.

The thing in front of him was bigger than him, by a long shot, and he presumed that it was much stronger as well. He didn't stand a chance against it, even if pigs flew.

Gulping, he analyzed his choices quickly. Fighting was out of the question, as was negotiating it seemed. The only thing left was to run, or at least attempt it. He didn't think he'd get very far but it didn't help to try.

He waited, though, to see what its first move would be.

The beast likewise seemed to be waiting for the vampire to make a move, though as he stood his ground, Maria took a single menacing step towards it, lowering her head as she hunched to get a better look at him. By this point he could feel the heat of her breath on his face as she let out a low menacing snarl, staring him dead in the eye.

V Luhan almost whimpered, taking a few steps back. The thing looked ready to eat him, and judging by the snarl, was considering it.

He couldn't stand it, and turned sharply, attempting to run. He doubted he'd get away.

Luhan's choice to run seemed to spark something off in Maria as it triggered her predatory instincts. It was running, and that made it prey. Coiling her muscles she leaped after it, closing the gap quickly with her substantially larger size. The vampire would have one advantage, and that was the density of the wood would allow him passage where it might not otherwise allow her.

That is if it could shake her enough to utilize such tactics. A single bound had her over-top of and skidding to a halt in front of the vampire once more. Blocking off its path of escape she spun and slashed a foreclaw across towards his chest.

The blow could well have been fatal to a human, but perhaps not to a vampire. If it hit, it would leave deep rends in his flesh, and send him hurtling off into the trees somewhere to the left.

V Luhan barely had time for a curse as he skidded to a stop, ready to run to his right, but being blown back from the blow, and to his left. He wasn't sure how far he went, though eventually he hit a tree.

He groaned, and attempted to stumble up and away from the beast, now throughly terrified. Whatever was attacking him, wanted him deader than he was already supposed to be.

Luhan would have scarcely time enough to right himself before Maria was upon him again, this time jaws snapping closed for that which was closest to her, his left leg. Fangs rend into flesh and the audible crack of bone filled the forest under her vice like jaws, and in a perhaps not so comical reenactment of a dog with a chew toy, she gave her victim a vicious shake of her head. However, in her frenzied state, and her large size, she was causing a great deal of damage to the forest around them.

The splintering of wood and the crack of tree branches could be heard all around. Dropping the no doubt battered vampire back to the ground she leaned in for the kill, but something jerked her back. The remnants of the broken chain links that still hung from the heavy set iron collar around her neck had become entangled.

Straining against the entangled chain she snarled and snapped her jaws for Luhan, but they would fall inches short, and she instead turned her outrage upon that which had her immobilized. And given the sheer ferocity that she subjected the surrounding trees to, it likely wouldn't take her long to free herself.

V Luhan screamed, the pain almost overwhelming him. He regretted wandering into the woods. Hell, he regretted laying eyes on them. The pain flowed over him, blurring everything else. He was aware that he was being shaken, but not much else passed through. Until he was dropped.

Instinct took over and, while he still felt the pain, he found that fear gave him enough strength to scramble back, and up, attempting to hobble/run/pull his way out of the woods.

Maria's head snapped back around as she made a last ditch effort to grab the vampire, but her claws would fall short, leaving deep rends in the earth at his heels. Redoubling her efforts she attempted to lunge after him but was again pulled up short and in a moment of outrage she threw her head back and let out a blood curdling roar, with fury enough to shake the trees around her.

Mariotto would just begin to look around only to kick at a couple of sticks only to shout out towards the sky. "Damn these woods!" Mariotto would get up and head back to the castle only to shadow step once to grab his things from the kitchen and then shadow step back now holding a sword still in its scabbard and a old flintlock pistol. "I am not going to enjoy this." Mariotto would whisper as he pointed the pistol in the air only to let off a single round before dropping the weapon. "Come out come out wherever you are!" The rogue of a vampire would begin to walk around the woods only to keep his wits about him and the sword at the ready.

Mariotto would begin to continue to look around only to curse a little. "Damn this entire group. Why did I have to be the one who needed to deal with this problem! I wish Casren was here to keep me occupied while I go to commit suicide." Slowly Mariotto would continue to walk around the woods only to stop and look towards the trees to see if the beast left any marks on the trees.

Prowling the wood, the sound of a gunshot in the distance brought Maria's head around as she listened to the echoing boom roll through the woods. Normally such a sound would have driven all manner of beast into hiding, but Maria did not fear guns.

Changing route she stalked her way through the woods, drawn to the sound of gunfire. However, Maria was a cunning and wily beast and she took the extra time to circle around the vicinity of the gunshot, to approach downwind.

Carefully scenting the air, she caught the smell of vampire, a stench she could not abide. The very odor burned in her nostrils as they flared angrily. It was faint though, as he had already departed the area to roam the woods.

Pausing she lowered her snout to the ground, snuffling lightly at the abandoned shell casing and the gun he had dropped upon the ground. Both reeked of vampire, bringing a curl to her lips and a low snarl. Having taken the time to circle around downwind had brought her up behind him.

Moving on, she kept her head low to the ground, following the scent of his footprints, though occasionally lifting her snout to the wind to make sure she was remaining downwind of her prey. Her last two encounters, while fruitful, had left her wounded and she was more cautious this eve than in nights past. Unlike the others, this one boldly traversed these woods and blatantly drew attention to itself.

Maria was closing in on her prey, and well within earshot as he began to shout through the woods. Such a bold challenge nearly drew another snarl forth as her lips curled back, revealing a vicious array of fangs. Catching sight of movement ahead, she froze, thick gobs of hot saliva dripping from her maw to land at her feet.

Her nostrils flared once more as the scent of vampire grew stronger, leaving her blood boiling within her veins. Such was the vehement loathing she harbored towards the creatures. She couldn't rationalize it, far too long had she been overtaken by the beast within, but the fragmented memories, disjointed as they were, still drew up old emotions of pain and fear. Pain of the likes she had never endured before. Pain that she would return ten fold to any vampire whom dared cross her path. They were the one creature that walked the night with her, that she hunted and killed for the sheer pleasure of it.

Coiling her muscles, she sprang into action with the loud splintering of wood as she closed the distance in the span of a moment. However, anticipating that Marriotto would turn to face his attacker, upon landing, she sprang high, clearing the vampire to land on the opposite side of him.

Skidding to a stop she turned to slash her left foreleg across for his hopefully exposed back. The blow could well be fatal, had he been a human. But for a vampire, perhaps not so. However, it would leave deep bloody rends in flesh should it strike.

Mariotto would fall for the trick and as he went to turn he withdrew his sword he carried and felt the sting of the wolfs claws against his back only to suddenly spring forward towards a set of trees while he still carried his sword. "Blasted beast!" Mariotto would explaim as he jumped up onto a tree and began to climb as fast as he could all the while keeping his head turned as to watch the beast to see if it would chase after him.

Not only would Maria pursue the vampire, but coiling her powerful muscles, she launched herself into the air to collide viciously with the side of the tree, just over Mariotto's head. Branches snapped under her weight and clawed hands splintered and tore at the thick bark beneath her grasp. Turning in place and braced against several stronger branches, she managed to head Mariotto off.

Inhaling deeply she let loose an ear splitting roar that would carry with it the reek of her heated breath, only a scarce foot away from Mariotto. Another vicious slash of her claws would rend and tear, splintering branches and bone alike, should Mariotto be caught in its path.

It was fast becoming apparent that Maria was not simply a behemoth. She was fast and powerful, with speed and strength to rival that of the vampires she so deeply loathed. Perhaps it is why their kind feared her so greatly. Though this realization was lost on Maria, as was the nature of their time-old conflict. Her actions after all, were born of pain and torment, not some ancestral vendetta.

Mariotto would simply catch sight of this and jump off the tree in a back flip and land upon the ground with sword at the ready. "Come on then you beast!" Mariotto would shout as he stared the the creature before him only to hiss as his fangs grew in size and his anger grew apparent. It was the damned fault of the bloody whore of a elder that he came out here and it would be because of her that he would either be severally injured or dead by the end of the night. "Come on and face me you beast!"

Maria didn't really give Mariotto time enough to taunt her as she was once again airborn almost simultaneously to him. Launching from the tree, she dove after him, colliding with the ground only a pace away with a devastating impact that left deep furrows in the earth from her claws.

Rearing up on her hind legs, she let loose another powerful ground shaking roar and again raked her claws across the form of the smaller vampire. Dodging her for long would prove difficult given her greater speed and strength. Not many would opt to take a werewolf head on after all, and Mariotto had abandoned his gun earlier that eve.

Mariotto would begin to have an almost manic smile as he ducked bellow the swipe only to rush forward in a blur of darkness bringing his sword he was carrying across the prey he had chosen to go out and hunt. Mariotto knew his blade was not of silver and knew because of that he would not most likely leave a dent but testing this creature was all he could do for now but with every blow he could successfully land it would become apparently obvious how much force he would have to put behind every attack of his. In the end the rogue of a vampire would continue to run after he made his attack not wishing to stay in one place to long.
