Heya! I'm your friendly neighborhood Larsinny, a demon here to keep you updated on the current debacles going on within the site! Okay, maybe not debacles... Anyway! The Endymion Plot, our Third Main Plot, is underway! We also have our sideplot taking place called Junction! If you're a new member looking to join the new plot, you will want to choose Endymion. However, if you're interested in our sideplot, you may also join that one aswell. The choice is ultimately up to you! The Dungeon Master of the Junction plot is CWIS and the DM of the current Endymion plot is Godai and Grantus.

All templates on the site have been updated, and this also includes the rules aswell. When referring to the rules, please disregard any that say "Old" or "Obsolete" as we are no longer using those rules for the Endymion Plot. Oh, don't be mistaken! I love breaking the rules!

PostSubject: The Lamplight Reveals The Truth (Toryuki Awakening/ Investigation)   Thu Jul 26, 2018 5:52 pm


Slipping away from the crowds of the slums, the Dystoran warrior moved amongst the back allies of the slums. It bothered her in a way how much she'd grown used to these slums, even though there were features of it that tended to change due to the nature of Junction itself.

That was why she walked. Junction... What was this place? She could gather little tid bits of information here or there, but so far, all she knew were about individual residents. The mystery. The way back to her home... Her war. And did time work differently here? The whole thing... She couldn't just forget her own home world. She threw it into a large war. To forget would be to disgrace.

Letting out a long exhale, Toryuki moved past a sleeping alien. Judging from its position, it was probably drunk, but that didn't matter to her. What interested her more was the alley behind it. Matters to attend, she stepped over a piece of stone rubble, before moving into the somewhat damaged alleyway. Whether it arrived in Junction damaged or not didn't matter to Toryuki. Could something be hidden beneath the rubble? Whether it related to Junction or not wasn't important. Any information would be pleasing. Anything. Those thoughts in mind, the Dystoran began to search among the rubble, crouching cautiously as she carefully and slowly moved the rubble to the side to look around.

The alleyway would be constructed primarily of what looked like stone and concrete. Clearly it had originally been two alleys but the constant shifting of the city must have shoved them together. As toryuki navigates down it, a sound that could only be described as stones walking would be heard behind her. If she turned to investigate she would find the drunkard she had passes standing at attention as it smiled a wide toothless from at her. A deep blackness filled both if it's eyes as a thick black ichor seeped from its mouth.

"Run...."

It said without words as it began to give chase.

The alien appears to be a Baseline... human... You have a good ten meters on it but it is gaining fast... what do you do?

The sound of movement caused the Dystoran to turn on a dime, facing the drunken humanoid. This... Was different. And the appearance was unlike one of a cultural difference. To Toryuki, it smelled of pure malice, and dangerous intent. The fact that it began to move towards her in such a hurry only emphasised this.

Turning back around, the Dystoran put her legs to use, hurdling over a piece of what she had been inspecting before turning and kicking it towards the stranger. "Cease and explain your intent, or I will use force and retaliate!" She declared, legs shifting to a defensive stance as her arms emerged from beneath her cloak, which shifted with her every breath and movement.

The human would stumble over the protrusion that Toryuki had gracefully avoided and fall on it's face with a sickening crack. However instead of blood flowing from the man, more of the thick, foul smelling liquid would seep from where it lay. The liquid itself would smell of putrid blood and rot... along with something indescribable. Slowly the creature would shamble back to its feet and begin to shuffle towards Toryuki again.


"Void.... Void... give to me....Void!"

An omonus wind flowed from the creature... Down the alley was clear, but dark also there was no telling what else was down there. Perhaps there was some way to reason with it? Could Toryuki fight it?... Maybe push past it and try to escape.

In the many things she'd seen in Junction, this was certainly a first. A black liquid, auditory horror clichés. The options in Toryuki's mind were telling her that this was no ordinary citizen of Junction. For now, distance would be a good idea. Turning on her non-existent heels, the Dystoran moved further down the alley, before once more checking to ensure any distance had been made from this stranger that she at first had thought drunk. "I said halt! Explain your intentions, and speak! What do you mean by void? Answer me now, as I do not wish to enact needless conflict!"

Should the creature keep moving forwards with words undiscernible, the fighter clenched her fists and slammed it on the nearby wall in an attempt to intimidate with a loud thud, mint green blood leaking from a split in her scaly skin. If the creature stopped, Toryuki herself would also stop, preparing to listen.

The creature would not respond to Toryuki's demands for compliance, opting to instead continue it's slow shamble towards her. Merely repeating it's request for "Void" and leaving behind a trail of the viscous black ichor that it had spilled prior. Toryuki's show of strength and intimidation, however, would have an unintended second effect as the poorly connected walls around her would begin to shake and splinter. What little structural integrity the stitched together alley way had was quickly dispelled as chucks from above began to rain down on both Toryuki and the creature.

Toryuki had moments to react before what was basically a cave in crushed her. Further in the alley/tunnel was more stable, the creature still barred the way back...

An itch... Almost imperceptible... tickled the back of Toryuki's mind, yet at the moment, that's all it was.

Hearing the sounds of the wall at her side splintering and cracking, Toryuki realised that what she had thought was a proper wall, was instead a structural failure of architecture. As much as she was interested in how something could be built so weak, now was not the time. Leaping backwards away from the still advancing void mutterer, the Dystoran turned once more, this time deciding that for now, the only way was further ahead.

Not knowing how far she'd have to run in order to get away however, that was a problem. Not to mention this... Feeling. The whole thing was so surreal that she couldn't help but feel her body desire to run. It was only her instinct as a warrior that supressed this desire to flee, as Toryuki instead gave herself a short burst of running to get away from the falling rubble, before slowing down to a fast jog, every now and again pausing to determine the distance between her and her pursuer. This was not how she felt today would go.

As Toryuki escaped the collapsing roof she would hear in the distance behind her a sickening crack followed by an intense burst of the foul smell of decay that had prevailed over the being and it's black blood. Looking back she would see the creature crushed under rubble, its torso pinned to the ground and impaled on a long sharp fragment one arm crippled underneath a piece of wall, and the other still clawing after her.

Her rout back seemed to be blocked as the cave in quieted...

Before her was a path deeper into this untouched catacomb within the Slums... The air smelled stale and still...

From here, two paths, one leading straight and the other forking to the right... The path forward seems to be gently sloping down while the path to the right stays level.

A split path, and from what little she knew of foreign worlds, this was similar to what they would call a catacomb, the home of the valued dead being said to descend downwards. While normally she'd have loved to have paused and investigated, this was not a situation where such was a luxury. Not missing a beat or pausing from her fast paced jog, the Dystoran opted to go further down into the catacombs. Worst case scenario, below ground would be a good place to make a last stand. Best case scenario, the descended area would allow her to lose her unkind pursuer.

At no point did she turn back, using her natural height and size as her advantage by taking long strides, eyes darting back and forth ahead of her, intent on making sure her footing was steady enough. She would not die this day.

Further down the path, Toryuki would have to navagate  though an increasingly tight corridor that, while straight and narrow, sloped ever so slightly downwards. Dotting the ceiling every few feet were electric lamps that lit her way through the darkness. Yet, in the distance it would be obvious that the lamps only lit as she approached them, maybe ten feet out, and would go out shortly after she moved away from them.

Eventually she would come to a relatively open chamber bathed in light. The sound of light breathing, far off in the distance could be heard coming from the numerous paths on the side walls, yet something seemed to be dotting the wall on the far end of the chamber...

Slowing down to a walk as her sense of urgency was dissipated and her sense of pace required to slow due to the narrow halls, the Dystoran looked around her at the strange catacombs around her. The way the lighting worked was unique, and certainly intriguing. Was there an unseen sensor that activated the lights upon having something in the sensor? If so... Then the technology truly belied the supposed age of the ruins.

Traversing ever deeper, Toryuki looked into the bright chamber, stepping cautiously into the expansive room as darkness enveloped the way which she had come from. The light breathing around her didn't make this the most enjoyable experience, yet none of this was what she would particularly classify as normality. All she could do was press on. Moving forwards, Toryuki approached the far end, keeping herself alert as she made her slow approach to investigate and inspect what appeared on the wall.

While passing by the other hallways, Toruki would be able to hear, in addition to the sound of breathing, what could only be described as a constant low static. One that was very similar to the sound of a television receiving a bad signal.

As she reached the far wall it would become apparent that the dotting that she had seen from a distance was in fact dozens if not hundreds of bones from Baselines. Mostly skulls and femurs, each crusted with a dry form of that same black foul smelling substance. At the far wall the chamber split, a path leading to the left and right. From here it seemed that the walls would be solely constructed of this new material.

A wall of bones, an increase in varying sounds, and two opposing paths. The bones at the end were intriguing, clearly not Dystoran in nature, but from one of those... Humanoid races? The smell and mustiness of the area emphasised that these bones were the real deal, although Toryuki wasn't familiar enough with the subject to date them. It intrigued her however, far more than it did disgust or horrify her. What sort of race or culture would create buildings out of bone? After all, such a material was only brittle usually. Unless the bones were hardier than they appeared. With the rubble that fell before however, the Dystoran knew not to knock on the bones to test her theory. Instead, it was time to choose which path to take.

Letting out a light growl of frustration at the sound of static, Toryuki opted to take the right most path, making sure each of her steps were light footed, and slow, first testing for if light would occur in the corridor before proceeding. This was an incredibly intriguing experience to her, and one that Toryuki was being careful to remember every detail about for study at a later date. There was a device named the C.W.I.S system, right? Perhaps there she could discover answers to any questions she had that would not be answered by delving deeper.

Following the Right path for a short distance, Toryuki would find that it curved left rather quickly and lead back into another chamber just beyond the one she had just come from, and from the looks of it the left bone path would have brought her to this large antichamber as well. The room itself was large and rather empty, the center of the room held a large alter where a body seemed to be crucified, the black liquid seeped from it. Beside the crucifix, a cloaked figure wearing a tricorner hat decorated with a Jolly Roger stood, affixing what looked to be electronic parts to the body.

The Static sound grew louder… The pressure in the back of Toryuki’s mind grew stronger… Both struggled for dominance over the other. The static began to form a voice, the pressure screamed back at it.

“Tsssssssh Grasp Tssssssssshruoption to begin ressssssssssh transmission. You have Been chosen! Yes you, do not woTsssssssssssssshod Nyarlarthotep has granted you the power to resist corruption.”

The static grew, the pressure built…

One offered protection, the other salvation.

The corpse on the crusifix has locked it’s gaze on you.

The cloaked man continues it’s work.

The corpse’s mouth hangs open and begins to speak.

“Ahoy…Matey...”

Would you like to begin transmitting?

Or will you run from your fate?

Stepping into the room and investigating the surroundings would normally have been something Toryuki would have spent her time doing, not wishing to rush. Yet instead, before her caught her current attention for a time, eyes darting between the two strangers. Quickly, her eyes transfixed on the corpse that began to speak however, as words emanated into her mind from the two conflicting sounds that wracked at her mind, so loud now that her eyes were sharp and small, pupils shrunken from the pain.

Very little of her took the words in, yet there was something she understood. The power to resist corruption... Did that mean that such a situation was something to do with corruption? The one in the cloak? The one with the black liquid? To hell with that. Resist corruption? With power like that... Perhaps she could finally kill the Emperor of Dystor. Her hands grasped to her skull, as if physically holding in the voice and sounds, before the Dystoran looked forth once more, muttering beneath her words.

"Let the transmission begin, and tell me who I must fight for now, voice of Nyarlathotep."
