*The recruitment officer approaches the group* "Alright everyone, squad C is being sent to the residence of the man who ran into town. He lived about 3 miles north of the city, so you should be able to make it there close to noon." *He waits for Cathran to finish writing it down for Yeldrenin* "Your mission is to observe and report. We don't know what kind of beasts attacked the farms, but we know it was dangerous. Find out what you can, and return back here with that information." *Waits again. Yeldrenin nods after finishing reading the note and writes a small "Thank you" to Cathran*
*The group is walking along the road. Yeldrenin is trying to teach them some simple signs like hello, but they don't seem to be picking it up very well. As they come around a bend in he road, they see a few large beetles scuttling around. When they notice the group they all start rushing forward.*
"Cathran is not a fan of insects....Cathran will tear them apart!" Cathran screamed as she dashed forward. She grew grew giant draconic claws and rammed them into a beetle's shell, slicing it in half. Her skin was covered in gold scales and her eyes glowed yellow. The beetles began to run towards her in revenge but one of them was impaled by a harpoon, sliding down a bit before being pulled back by Yeldrenin pulling back on the chord. While they stared on in horror a third was sliced in half by a swift scythe slash.
"I'll admit I'm not fond of them either...." Lila said as she posed to strike again. Zeva prepared to shoot a blast of acid only to have it fizzle out in front of her. She looks at her hands in confusion and begins shaking them, as though they were a broken staff.
"Don't you dare touch me! You will all DIE!!" Cathran screamed as she grabbed one of the beetles and crushed it in her fist, throwing it at the other beetle, who meekly tried to run away.
"I REFUSE to let you LIVE!!!" Cathran roared. She ran over to it and stomped it flat, continuing to slam her foot into the corpse over and over, roaring and screaming in anger and frustration. Lila grabbed her shoulder.
"Calm down, it's over!" She said. Cathran looked around in anger but stopped. She began to pant as her scales and claws slowly vanished.
"I....C-Cathran is sorry." She said sheepishly, "Cathran tends to overreact to situations."

*Lila lifts her scythe in front of her before grabbing one of the disposable cloths she usually carries around with her and wipes the glowing goop off of it. She then buried the cloth in the ground where it would later dissolve before placing the scythe on her back once more*
*Yeldrenin walks up to zeva and pats her back then nods encouragingly and waves for the entire group's attention. He gestures a few things, then points down the road. Cathran picks up the word "go" in all the gestures.*
Zeva nods and just looks at the two them for their support and giggles at the 'space taco' translation. As Yeldrenin starts to head off, Zeva is right behind him. Zeva does smile to herself as she takes her cloak off and lets it drape her behind her, *Reference photo*, as she lets them all see and get a full look at her for the first time.
*the group presses on toward the farm, as they look out over the fields, they can see more groups of fire beetles (the overgrown fireflies you fought) crawling around in the shade of trees and areas of tall grass. None of them really pay attention to the group. As they walk, they can just make out the farm house in the distance. And nothing really looks wrong. *
Dingmamon: the sanctuary would help if the group tried to just murder hobo them from the start, or if they ran away, but if you describe them how you did, i don't think they'd just attack for no reason

shogungari: oh hey, we got a new guy
Jan 19, 2016 16:33:14 GMT
Dingmamon: yeah, i got the notification earlier. haven't heard anything from him yet
Jan 19, 2016 18:22:28 GMT
shogungari: I just posted another ad on Reddit so hopefully we can get another game set up soon
Jan 19, 2016 18:26:41 GMT
shogungari: you thinking of restarting tempest statum for the new players? I could even remake with a normal character

Doublewhip: Saw your Reddit ad. Don't forget to reach out to and affiliate with other similar forums!
Jan 20, 2016 1:29:36 GMT
Dingmamon: thanks Doublewhip, we'll keep an eye out for some similar forums.
Jan 20, 2016 14:50:50 GMT
Dingmamon: and possibly gary, though at this point i am having a hard time coming up with campaign ideas.
Jan 20, 2016 14:51:58 GMT
shogungari: Really? I have a few if you wanted to borrow them
Jan 20, 2016 16:32:44 GMT
shogungari: Also, welcome Doublewhip

Guest: This place still active?
Apr 13, 2016 7:01:34 GMT
Dingmamon: not really. the guy who started it is in the military now, and those of us that did stick around had life stuff come up
Apr 13, 2016 20:12:19 GMT
shogungari: Hey Ding, I see you still come here. Any incentive to revive this place?
Jun 29, 2016 23:20:30 GMT
Dingmamon: I would love to, but really the only time I have to actually check it is when i'm at work. If you want to revive it by advertising and stuff, I will do what I can to keep it up and running smoothly for you, but I probably wouldn't be able to actively
Jun 30, 2016 18:58:23 GMT
Dingmamon: participate in any games
Jun 30, 2016 18:58:33 GMT
Dingmamon: By all means if you want to set something up and run it, go for it. I still have Admin access since Zekey left it to me when he joined the Navy, and from conversations with him, he probably isn't coming back
Jun 30, 2016 19:00:30 GMT
Dingmamon: Alternatively, if you wanted to set your own one of these up, you would have the ability to shape it and tailor it to what you wanted a bit more, and I'd be willing to help keep things organized on it so you can focus on people and games
Jun 30, 2016 19:05:52 GMT
shogungari: Nope, just seeing if you had something planned.
