Of Scum and Villainy - Team Decimation
« on: October 28, 2013, 06:38:34 AM »
The designated time arrives and you find yourselves in the utter darkness of the Void. Moments pass and the darkness changes, leaving a system of black beams in odd geometries on a background of black nothingness. In spite of the lack of light you find yourselves able to sense the shape and color of things, a fashion of sight without sight. Among the structure, a great thing of grey appears. Vaguely spherical and made out of nothing but sharp edges, thorns, spikes and razors, the few cracks in its form reveals a nothingness that seems even deeper than the void, not just empty blackness but the dizzy feeling of staring into a blind spot. The thing lets out clanging sounds of metal upon metal and after a moment the clangs begin to form a pattern, then words as if the rythm of a battlefield or a great machine working through some freak coincidence formed words

"The time is nigh, this is the beginning of the end and you are its harbingers and its creators. Go forth and leave nothing but ruin and desolation in your wake. Many will rise to oppose you, mortal and divine alike. You must destroy them all. Of all your foes, the greatest will be d'Cardin. When you face him, strike with all your fury."



The darkness changes, the great sphere and the geometrical structure disappears, but you find yourselves in darkness all the same. A cavern of some sort or other. You are not exactly wanting for space, but it is fairly small all the same.

Aphelion Asmodai appeared in his 'disguise', a cloak thrown over his form to hide his true nature on the rare occasions he needed to stay his blade. He peered from under the hood as his eyes accustomed themselves to the darkness. His mind raced, immediately, instinctively, to the thought-

how can i draw blood here

-scanning for chokepoints and bottlenecks to lay traps and lay in wait, straining the auditory membranes on the sides of his head to hear signs of life not emanating from his mutual benefactees, carefully folding his hood back to more clearly hear.

His head, as it were, was strange, dominated by a single eye along the front. The beast had a mouth, and it was full of teeth, but it seemed almost decorative, put in for no other purpose than to intimidate.

The cloaked creature slowly tensed into a crouch. Astute observers would see a strange shifting around where a humanoid's elbows and waist would be.

After examining the room, he looked to those his benefactor had charged with a similar task, seeing how they would impact his plans, or what plans could be made around them.

((OOC : I'm going to assume that Aphelion took 20 on his bluff check to put on his cloak prior to the meeting. He's a punctual sort.))

A small serpent-like creature floats slightly above the ground's surface, "looking" about the place it was thrust into. It felt rather cozy in here, with the shapes and the darkness and the giant beast floating in the middle of the room. Or machine, or whatever it was. WAIT, wasn't that thing talking about some kind of job? Killing things, maybe some gods, and some other guy? Whatever it was, it quickly faded fro view, leaving nothing but darkness. With the figure gone, Gok-rei was left with a few other creatures in the room. The thing did mention others to aid in the destruction. Might as well say something.

"Hello!" Gok-rei replies in a cheery tone, it's voice containing an unnatural reverberation. "I'm Gok-rei! Who're you guys? Are we going to be killing together? Or am I supposed to start with you guys first?"

Also in the dark place stands a vaguely humanoid being, with a strangely unnatural appearance. His skin is traced with glowing lines, all angry, hateful colors, and his eyes glow with the most rage of all. His eyes click and whir as he looks around the 'room'.
Varseil carefully analyzes his surroundings with his metallic eyes, wondering what sort of place it may be. When the abomination speaks, he turns his attention to it. "I believe we are meant to kill together, or else we would not have all been told the same thing." He scans across the group, examining each. "I am Varseil, and some call me the Inhumane."

The demon looms tall over the strange creature, Soulstealer in hand, and begins to speak.
"I am Kathanok, Lord of the damned, and I agree. We are supposed to destroy this realm together." He crouches down and nudges Gok-rei with the side of his weapon.
"Although if that is the case, your tiny body better be hiding some very nasty surprises."

"....Aphelion Asmodai." The creature's voice was quiet, soft, and unused to...well, USE. It readjusted it's hood carefully to put it back over it's head.

Gok-rei swats the finger away from the demon that pokes it. "NEXT TIME, I WILL SWALLOW YOUR SOUL FOR YOUR IMPUDENCE, FEEBLE BEING. So, where are we supposed to go?" Gok-rei looked around, as if it had never made an outburst in the first place.

"That is certainly an excellent question." Varseil looks at the others. "Does anyone have an answer, or do we just start moving?"

A grin spreads over Karthanok's face at gok-rei's outburst.
"We'll see who is or isn't feeble soon enough, little one."
He returns to full height before addressing the rest of the group.
"This cave seems empty enough, so I think we should see what is outside."

"Righto!" Gok-rei speeds away in a random direction, hoping to do something more exciting that just stand around.

Seeing as there is only one way to move that doesn't involve digging through rock, Gok-rei finds that randomizing his choice of direction doesn't really affect the choice much. Progressing further down the cave for a bit, Gok finds a hole in the floor with a large spiderweb across, the carrying strands nearly a full foot thick.

Aphelion crept along the path Gok sped down, stopping at the spiderweb.

"Careful." He insisted as he moved around the web. "Could be useful ambush point."

Karthanok decides to join the others further in the cave, easily flying over the web.

Varseil follows suit, maneuvering with a surprising amount of grace around the spiderweb, his left hand idly flexing with a flame dancing around it.

Gok-Rei follows suit, moving with the crowd going around the web.
