The Northern Winds

Post by Kurio on Tue Jun 11, 2013 12:06 am

Hello my friend. Stay a while and listen. For I am about to tell a rather long and old story, one dating back centuries ago. The second largest continent in the world, Menitiros, had been known for its everlasting peace among the nations. They had never been part of an official war since the nine year war between Tian'men and Grandiar and the forming of an alliance between all of the nations. There had certainly been conflicts and minor disputes over boarders and culture but never an official war. Though all good things must come to an end. There was no such thing as everlasting peace. Due to the actions of a single renegade group, they had ignited the flames of conflict once again. The alliance, made up of seven different nations, now faced a six-sided war among themselves.

In the seventh nation, the Theocracy of Balmamusa, there was no war going on between its people or other nations. The nation was far enough north and completely isolated from the other nations by the Ocean that they managed to be able to escape being caught within the flames of war. And even when the other nations attempted to reach to the kingdom for aid, traveling through the howling winds and endless snowstorms in the frozen tundra for several days proved to be too great a feat for them.

However, Balmamusa was not with its own worries. The late Archbishop's daughter, Princess Cordelia, had disappeared on the day after her father's death. For two weeks they've searched for her, but the child was nowhere to be found within the city. Fearing for the young princess's safety and well-being, several travelers were hired to form a search party to look for the lost princess.


---------------------------------

Okay here is another attempt at this rp after rewriting quite a bit of the story. I will have three people to be in this rp aside from myself and Gist.

1. Cordelia (Kuori)
2. Alla (Gist)
3. Liz (Zeri)
4. Kailara (Cerani)
5. Lance (Durn)

On the frozen plains of Balmamusa several miles away from the nearest city, there were a small group of travelers treading through the deep snow. Travelers in Balmamusa was already a rare sight to see, but what's even rarer is that these travelers were all the way out here, far from any civilization. The lack of any kind of food source, along with the biting cold and unforgiving snowstorm, was enough to drive almost anyone away from the general vicinity. But apparently it wasn't the case with this group, they had a task to complete. Though when they left the city they were warned to tread lightly, as the frozen plains were home to various predatory animals, all of them having adapted to the harsh coldness and endless snowstorms. The group, with most of them not being used to such harsh climates, would be at a natural disadvantage in the snow. However the journey so far had been going fairly smoothly with nothing besides the deep snow and low visibility to slow down their search.

Of course that peace didn't last for very long as the sound of a howl came from a distance away. Moments later more howling could be heard, they were louder now, or maybe closer. And soon after the howls ended the group could see yellow eyes and gleaming white fangs through the snowstorm; they were slowly approaching. The eyes and fangs belonged to four white wolves, all of which looked hungry and bloodthirsty. The wolves circled the group and surrounded them, there was no way for them to escape now.

Alla had weathered the environment for quite some time as she looked for her Princess. It was even to say that she was the most devoted in the search. Was that because of her royal duty to find her, or was it other things? Alla stood in the middle of the snow-covered field, the fierce winds whipping her skirts all about. She warily watched the circle of wolves that paced near them all, hoping that nothing too drastic would come out of it. Gripping her staff, she stepped away from the group towards the northernmost wolf and eyed it with a black conviction. A tear came to her eye as the wind bit into it, but to others, it could look emotional. "May the Goddess protect us and bless our swords as we march with righteous fury!"

Alla starts at [D5]!

Even with her big cloak and hood, the cold of the plains was almost unbearable. Snow crunched under her feet and clung to her boots, the wind bit through cloth and leather alike. And to top it off, there was a snowstorm, lowering visibility to the point where the landscape became but gray shapes in the flurries of snow. Give the assassin the relative warmth and ease of sight in city streets over this any day. And then, wonder of wonders, she and her 'companions' were set upon by wolves. "Really, can this day get any better?" With a sigh filled with ire, Kai drew her blades and studied the wolves. They didn't really look like much but she knew that in packs wolves were highly dangerous, not to mention the fact that the canines had home advantage. If she didn't look right at them they almost disappeared in the storm, given away by snarling teeth and black noses. "Right."

Kailara starts in F - 5.

Elizabeth casually hummed a small little tune to herself, despite the bitter cold that surrounded her. She did not feel the cold though, her coat protecting her and keeping her warm. From the ring on her finger, she allowed the tiniest bit of magic to waft around her person, heating the air around her so the cold could not touch the areas of her body that were unprotected. Even when the wolves appeared to attack them, Elizabeth, preferring to be called Liz by her friends, continued allowing her magic to escape and warm her body. It was such a minuscule amount of magic that it would hardly be missed. Besides, her connections to the leylines of the land allowed quick restoration of her magic.

The girl was a small figure, though Liz never seemed to mind her short stature. Sure, it was inconvenient at times, but it also helped her. Escaping through tiny holes in the world was somewhat of a specialty she had. Her young face also helped getting out of bad situations. As a witch, she had to prove that her intentions were good in nature while in this land. More than once she faced prosecution for acts that she did not do. But when she joined this group, those circumstances became few and far between. Which was probably the primary reason why she hung around with the group, despite whatever disagreements she might have with the individuals involved.

"Wolves hunt in packs right?" Liz asked rhetorically, rubbing the gem-encrusted ring on her finger in thought. "So if we only knock out a few of them, they'll run away. Right? I hope so. Hurting animals isn't something I can enjoy."

Liz starts in E-5

Lance starts at E6.

The blistering winds skated across Lance's eardrums with a whistling shriek that coldly bit against his cheeks relentlessly and unbearably so. Outside of his mind, sound had always been suppressed - suppressed from him since a young age - when a demon stole all sound from him, forever. He wanted it back. He wanted to hear his own voice, the voices of his allies, and the true sounds of the nature that surrounded him.

But do remember, Lance's mind had quite a strong voice of its own, and that voice could be manifested through his blade, and these wolves were about to hear his rage.

Kailara moves to G-5.

The assassin rolled her eyes at the girl, though kept her chosen wolf within her line of sight. "You'd better get used to it. These are feral animals, and I'm not saving you when they eat you." Though the girl would hardly make a meal for a pack of four wolves. Far too skinny, not enough meat on her bones. Might make a good chew toy for the pups though, if there were any. Kai shook her head, twirling one blade lazily. The winter predator in front of her wouldn't last long against her skill, if at all. She crunched forward through the snow, ignoring the wolf's low snarling and wavered her right sword as though picking precisely where to strike. Target chosen, she flicked her blade towards its throat but feinted more its side, piercing its flank, and then laid into the creature with a follow through thrust and slash. If all was well, in moments the wolf would lay splayed open at her feet, warm and dark red blood seeping into the snow.

Kailara uses Sly Flourish [-12 MP] on Wolf (4)! Links Basic Attack combo! 9 Atk damage first hit, then 8 Atk damage, 2 hits!

1 Stealth Charge added. Not like you can use it though. (1)

"I'm not saying I won't hurt them," Liz sighed, twisting the ring on her finger as she began focusing more and more magic into the core of the ring. "I'm saying it's a pain in the ass." With that, Elizabeth threw out her hand, a small flame escaping from her ring and forming an orb that swirled and smoked in her palm. With another thrust of her hand, the flame took a different shape, into a form of a serpent, it's jaw unhinged and ready to take in and swallow the beast. The fire swirled down onto the wolf, dousing the area around it in a great fire.

Alla listened to her allies as they settled into the fight. Hearing each remark as they shifted their positions, she was comforted a tiny bit. The only silence came from Lance, and she liked him best. He didn't make much sound, and he was eternally silent. Alla had tried to speak with him before, but he could not hear. She told him everything she had in confidence and knew that he would never tell. He was Alla's confidant, and she smiled at him as she turned to face the wolf again. "I see. That is the problem. Dæmons have possessed these innocent creatures! I must heal them! O Goddess! Please lend me your divine power and aid me in absolving these souls of their sins!" As she raised her staff into the air, a dark orb began to gather around the end of it. She pointed it at the  wolf in front of her and, with emotionless eyes, released it. "Be healed!" The dark orb flew from her staff and began tapering into a sinful blade, making sure it will remove everything from its target...

Lance waits.


He didn't need to hear their snarling growls. He didn't need to hear his allies tell him to kill the wolves. He didn't need to be told what was good, or what was evil. Lance could hear goodness; he could hear evil. He knew through his blade, which vibrated viciously and relentlessly as Lance held it toward the wolf. Evil slept within the poor creature, and Lance promised himself he would dissect it and remove all darkness from its heart.

The purging would then begin; the evil would then be removed.
