IC: Dreenan The dark green armored Toa walked into the village of fire. Her armor was scared and pitted from fighting, and her metal boots clanked as she walked. She was here on an important mission. She was here to find someone, someone important. Her target's name: Nighting And wherever he was, she was going to find him.
IC:Miha "Virthee!" Miha called with a large grin on her face. "Look what me and Captain Morgan found!" Her pet Gukko, Captain Morgan, followed her, as loyal as ever. IC:Nighting Nighting was at the Lavapool Inn, relaxing at one of the tables. Drinking some Bula Berry juice. Just waiting for something to happen.
IC: Virthee The Toa of fire smiled, chuckling to himself as he followed after the Matoran named Miha. He lived here In Ta-koro, had for as long as her could remember. He had faced 1000 years before the Toa Mata had showed up, and felt great hope when they did. Now, nothing was different. "Hold on Miha, I'm coming." IC: Dreenan Her boots thumped against the ground as she headed toward the Lavapool Inn. She knew Where he would be, and she knew she had caught him red handed. There it was, the location of Nighting. It was time for him to pay. "Nighting, I know you're in there!" She roared as she stepped inside.
IC:Miha"Look! It's a purple bug!" Miha said, poking the beetle with a stick. "I've never seen this before!" The curious Le-Matoran was cheerful, although she had not lived on the island all her life like most locals, the Le-Matoran was hopeful that Makuta would be vanquished and that order and would be restored. Alongside this hopefulness, was also curiousness. There were few animals that she had not observed before, so the fact that she had not seen this species of beetle was quite strange.NightingNighting's Bula Berry Juice trembled in it's glass as Dreenan came through the door. He looked up to see Dreenan come in. "Uh-oh..." Nighting said with a grimace as Dreenan came closer. "Yes Dreenan?" he answered cautiously.
IC: Virthee He smiled at the purple bug. Miha always seemed to be interested in everything she found. She was quite curious about things, though he didn't know why. "Neither have I Miha, neither have I." IC: Dreenan The Toa of Plasma stormed up to Nighting's table, rather angry. Then she stopped, breathing slowly for a few seconds. "Look, I don't care if you won the bet. Give me my shield back."
IC:Nighting Nighting sighed. "Fine." he said, handing the shield over to the Toa of Plasma. "Now could you please stop yelling? You might disturb the other residents." he said calmly as he took a sip of Bula Berry Juice. Miha"I'm going to go show it to those people over there!" Miha said, rushing over towards a large crowd of people which dissipated when she came near, shoving the bug into many people's faces.
IC: Dreenan She grumbled to herself, heating Nighting's juice without him knowing. "Fine, sorry about that." IC: Virthee Virthee shook his head, chuckling at Miha's antics. "Don't hurt anyone!"
ICIn the corner of the Lavapool Inn, a (now slightly charred) notice had been nailed to the wall, bearing the following message.
IC:Miha Miha turned towards Virthee to tell him she would be careful but as soon as she turned away a hand slapped the bug and it flew out of her grasp, and landed right in a pedestrian's mouth. He gagged and accidentally swallowed. Nighting Nighting lifted the cup to his mouth and... "OW!" he cried, dropping the cup on the ground. "What was that for you dirty little...!"
IC: Virthee Virthee Shook his head and sighed. "Maybe we should just head back home... where you won't feed anyone else bugs." He suggested. IC: Dreenan She smirked, breaking into a chuckle. "Lighten up Nighting, you started this by stealing my shield."
IC:Miha"Yeah..." Miha said with a chuckle. "But that was kinda funny..." she said as she tried to hold in the laughter as the pedestrian flailed on the ground, trying to cough up the bug. Nighting"I started it my bow!" Nighitng said angrily. "You shouldn't have wagered it if you didn't want to loose it you little..."
IC: Dreenan She glared at Nighting very irritatedly. "Go ahead, finish that sentence. My fist hasn't hit anything ugly for a few days now." IC: Virthee Despite himself, Virthee had to agree, it was rather funny. "Maybe I should go help that person..."
IC:Miha"You probably should..." Miha said still chuckling. Nighting Nighting took a few short breaths. He couldn't get into a fight with Dreenan again. With a sigh he said, "Look, I shouldn't have over reacted, sorry for any offense." He turned to the bartender and tossed some widgets. "Keep the change." he said as he strode out of the inn. He looked back. "You coming?" he asked Dreenan.
IC; Virthee The Toa went over to check on the Choking Bystander, and within a few minutes, had gotten rid of the bug. "The insect has been removed from you airway." IC: Dreenan She tilted her head slightly, knowing it was her fault too. She was the main issue here. "Sure, right behind you!"
OOC: For some reason this new forum doesn't let me change the text color. Either I'm stupid or it's a problem. I'll probably figure it out like 5 seconds after I post knowing my luck. IC: Pragma Pragma stood in the Lavapool Inn, serving customers from behind his counter. (OOC: NPC's inluded) IC: Fehdran Fehdran walked through the streets of Ta-Koro, searching for old friends of hers. She could only wonder where Dreenan and Nighting were.
IC:NightingNighting walked until he saw Fehdran. "Hey Fehdran!" he called, walking over to the Toa of Water. Miha Miha just watched Virthee do his work as he extracted the bug from the pedestrian.
IC: Dreenan She grinned, seeing her Toa of Water friend. "Hey Fehdran. finally someone to talk some sense into sparky here." IC: Virthee "And Finished." Virthee stated, letting the bug go free, and walking back over to Miha.
IC: Fehdran "Oh no, what did he do this time?" she said, gesturing to Nighting. She gave a smile to the 2 of them.
IC: Dreenan She grinned back. "He stole my shield. Then complained when i kindly heated his drink for him." She made it clear with her tone that she was joking.
IC:Nighting"Oh would you look at that Fehdran? A brakas monkey that talks!" Nighting quipped with a large smile. Miha"So now what do we do?" Miha asked as they started walking back towards Virthee's house.
IC: Salamander A Toa stepped out of the Charred Forest, his orange eyes glowing through the smoke that surrounded him. He stared in the direction of Ta-Koro for nearly a minute before continuing on his way. After a few minutes, he arrived at the gate that marked the enrance to the Village of Fire. The Toa nodded to the guards in greeting as he walked in. Before he even made it out from beneath the gate, Salamander realized just how hot the village was. Somehow, when he had heard that it was located at the base of a volcano he had never realized what the average temperatures might be. Of course, it made no difference to him; after all, he felt most comfortable in intense heat. Salamander grinned slightly, and eagerly stepped through the gate and into Ta-Koro. OOC: Yes, I did start here simply because that's where Salamander started last time. I guess I felt like repeating that, for tradition's sake (if you can call it that ). Anyway, Salamander open for interaction.
IC: Fehdran Fehdran tried to suppress a laugh at Nighting's jibe at Dreenan. He had a great sense of humor. Maybe that was part of the reason she lov-- no, no, she can't have those feelings for him. She shook the thought from her mind. "So, what have you two been doing, you know, other than disturbing the piece?"
IC: Dreenan "We've also been disturbing the peace in a bar. That's different, right?" Dreenan joked, strapping her shield onto her back.
OOC: Oh I missed this! =D IC: "There have been 20 new incident reports over the last couple of days and we need them filed as soon as possible."The sandpaper-like voice belonged to Vahu, one of the Matoran working for the Ta-Koro guard as a archivist.To Agni sighed and rubbed his eyes. He could barely see the top of Vahu's Kanohi over the pile of tablets stacked up on the desk in front of him.For some reason, guard-duty at the main-gate didn't seem like such a boring activity anymore. It had been earlier in the day that the Toa of fire had received a message from the Captain requesting his help in archiving. Of course he'd responded in a timely fashion, that was the job after all. But this, this was definitely not what he'd signed on for.Taking a deep breath Agni flexed his fingers and began his work again. He'd wondered how the archivist he was covering for today was able to manage any reports at all with just a chisel. A faint sizzling rose up from his fingers as he used his element to quickly burn the report into the tablet lying in front of him.And now Vahu had just dropped off another twenty on the desk, to be turned from hasty scribbles into a neat protocol of events.Just for once, a Muaka would be a welcome distraction.Pushing his frustration aside, Agni took the next tablet and got to work.
IC:Nighting "Sure it is Dreenan. Sure it is." Nighting replied sarcastically.
IC: Dreenan "Gee, I'm sure not feeling wanted around here." She joked, glaring at Nighting. "Maybe I should just go set off a volcano or something."
IC:Nighting "Pfft, who on earth would set a volcano off a volcano this close to the village? You'd have to have absolutely no control over your powers!" Nighting said with a laugh.
IC: Dreenan "It was a joke." She grumbled, getting irritated with Nighting.
IC:Nighting "I know that." Nighting said. "It just so happens that I was also joking, I didn't mean you would do it, I meant that if someone were to do that, then they probably wouldn't have any control over their powers." Nighting said with a grin. "I'm sorry if I offended you."
IC: FehdranAs fun as this banter is, I feel a strong urge to go on an adventure of some sort.
IC: Dreenan "Any certain adventure in mind, or just want to go all around the island fighting whatever infected Rahi we find?"Dreenan asked, not hiding the fact she was ready for a fight.
IC:Nighting"And I agree." Nighting said with a grin. "So, how about we ask Vakama if he needs anything done?" Nighting suggested. OOC:This team needs a name.
OOC: It does. Should it be Matoran sounding or in English? I can come up with a good Matoran sounding one.IC: Fehdran"I had nothing specific in mind so let's go with Nighting's idea."
IC:Nighting "Alright, now we just have to decide who's gonna ask Vakama. You remember what happened last time Vakama was asked something like this..." Nighting said, remembering. "His house almost exploded!" OOC:So... Do you guys wanna contact FT or just make up a quest for ourselves?
IC: Dreenan "I told him I was sorry for almost blowing his house up, but that old dude sure keeps grudges." Dreenan muttered. OOC: I say we ask Tuck, and I think A Matoran sounding name would be good.
IC:Nighting"YOU did that?" Nighting asked shocked. "Well I guess you won't be asking him then." OOC:I also agree with Matoran name.
IC: Dreenan She shrugged slightly. "What can I say, I had some dirt on me, got too close to a torch, and it turns out the dirt was explosive."
IC: FehdranFehdran wasn't surprised by Dreenan's story."Destruction seems to be a talent of yours, Dreenan."
IC: Dreenan She shrugged modestly. "And if it wasn't, we wouldn't get far on our adventures. Walsl getting it the way, and not being melted, enemies not being fought, and more."
