Reposted so it's in the righ place. Minx/Ollie

Job Location:  Aconite Town
Job Description:  Stop a gang from extorting business owners for "protection."  Keep destruction to a minimum.
Job Reward (if applicable): Magic Item (if Holder), EXP (see ranking page)
Job Status:  finished by {Oliver} and *Minxie*

MInxie:: *The guild hall was abundant in guildmembers all having their own set of abilities, ranks and partners.The guild room was large and made of stone and wood, and had many types of furnature that had been taken up by the numerous groups of people.Minxie had yet to be placed into a guild. But luckely she was given permission to take on some small jobs until such a time comes up. Minxie stood 5'6 about normal size for a girl of 24 years. SHe had been standing infront of the billboard with her long brown locks curled around her finger in a wondering fashion. pink eyes scanning and rescanning the job listings until she finds one that would prove to be perfect for her abilities. The extortionist job. She reads it over after tearing it from the wooden object* i see..perfect...now i need someone to come with me... *She turns away from the board and wonders around the great hall sorting out who may be available or not. finally the bright idea of announcing the job would be best so she stands on one of the bar stools and calls out loudly* Who wants to join me in a e class job?! *she says and waits for a responce {OO} Oliver was spinning around on a bar stool, despite being under the age of twenty-one, at the bar (believe it or not, that's where bar stools are commonly found). He was minding his own business, pondering what to do today, and what to grab to eat. Though his plans (or lack there of) were derailed when a girl from out of whothehellknowsistan came and tried to ask him [well anyone in this case, but being the only one around, you know for help. Sure he was a D-rank now, but weren't there more qualified wizar-oh wait, it's a Monday, most of the B-rank and ups were sleeping off massive hangovers, because their guildmaster is an alcoholic, and he has come to terms with that. Oliver jumped up onto his bar stool, snatching the paper up out of the girl's hands with the sharp hook of his cane and holding it up to read the details. "Allllright, I'll tag along, just don't get anything broken inside your body. Breaking things outside of it are okay, but not advised. Let that be a lesson to remember, broken things are better on the outside than the inside." The kid was quite eccentric. "Now where do we go?" {OO} *Minxie blinks as the paper is taken from her by a cane. her eyes trailing after the item until the one who was holding the cane spoke and got her attention* oh uhm..Aconite Town...its a few towns over if im correct.tell me what rank are you sir? *She asks the alburn haired male who was seemingly as excited as she was to finally get a job. She gets off her stool and awaits an answer. giving him 1 minute to answer before she starts moving towards the couch she left her bag on. she didnt have a place to stay yet so she had been sleeping on the couches in the main room. She lugs it over ehr shoulder and heads to the door* i sure hope this goes well~ im so excited to show what i can do! *she smiles happily and extends her hand to the other wizard* Im minxie Spirito by the way its nice to meet you sir! {OO} Yea, Oliver was already out the door when the girl had introduced herself, the moment he had heard Aconite town he started going the wrong way. Despite coming from a line of dungeoneering and merchants, he was bad at his initial sense of direction whenver he went somewhere. The girl had better catch up to him before he got too far in the wrong direction. He did call back to her though, "I'm Oliver Oxford! the most dapper of fellows in the guild!" {OO} *Minxie watches the boy walk away, giving a light giggle when he called back* wrong way oliver sir! its this wayy! *She calls back and wait for him to catch up to her as she starts for the train station. Her heels lightly tapping on the cobblestone road. She ducks her head lightly as she blushes, being from a oisolated community she had not yet gotten used to the towns people. the guild was another thing she felt more at home with wizzards around. the mermaid peeks over to see if the other was following* ...so sir oliver what majoc is yours? im water make~ nothing outstanding but i can hold my own~ *she says trying to create conversation as they would walk* {OO} Turning on his heel when the girl told him he was heading the wrong way, turning on a dime and strolling off after Minxie. She seemed nice, if a bit of a novice, but that's okay, we all start somewhere right? Well while walking through the town and on the way to the locomotive station, he was questioned about what his magic did. He held his cane up over his head and pointed to the golden angled hook with his free hand. "This, it's this." Being a bit cryptic on purpose, he would rather show her what it did to blow a mind rather than drone on about how great the item was to catalog the unique magics instilled upon it by his ancestors. {OO} *Minxie looks up to the cane and regards it with fastination* that is neet~ so your cane is your magic item?? *She asks as she loosk it over. her hands play with the strap of her dufflebag. She tilts her head as she observes* well then this makes you a classy wizzard. the only thing your missing is a top hat~ *She jokes lightly and hops up the stairs to the large building that housed the train stops. large pillars sepperate the one side of the building from the other, and inside were many people comming and going from and to various destinations. A large screen positions over the main room shows off the information of each train. she spots their train and points to it* there! the 113 express! we must hurry! *she exclaims and picks up the pace wanting to make the train on time* tickets tickets~ *she sings lightly and trots up to the ticket booth* 2 tickets to Aconite Town please! *she says to the statiosn ticket manager* {OO} Oliver, just looking around at the architecture of the train station with his tongue running over the fronts of his teeth whilst his mouth was shut, just passing the time as Minxie handled paying for the tickets. It wasn't until after the tickets were paid for and Oliver was in his seat on the train that he brought up a topic to Minxie, "You know, you could have put the expense on the guild's tab. For future reference." He looked out the window as the scenery went by, tip-tapping away rhythmically against the window. He was more than capable to handle this mission, despite his rank that is, he was considered an unofficial A-rank thanks to the skills he showed during the tournament, having taken down three slayers of varying types consecutively. "So what brought you to Demon Howl?" He would listen to the story all the way to Aconite town and depart when the train stopped. {OO} *Minxie follows to their seats on the train and gets comfy, her bag under her head as she lays across her seat* well... i dont belong to the guild so i cannot pay with its money~ *she taps her fingers together and whispers* water make bubble~ *She plays with a small water bubble that slips out of her fingers* My village was distroyed. i had nothing left there but ruin. so i traveled looing for means to become stronger...to find a new home~ nothing all that fancy of a past you know..the usual mother was gone so i was raised by my dad who protected the village and got killed when we were attacked...he was my best friend. and i lost him...but he always told me 'be the best you can be and take care of your friends!' *she says in a cute fake boy voice. the bubble bouches between her finegrtips* what about you? whats your story?? {OO} After getting off of the train with Minxie, Oliver was walking along through Aconite town, trying to find the location where their job was. "Well I left my home country because I could not handle the glares and thoughts of my family's history -- I supposedly come from the bloodline of the King of Thieves, you see. And it all came from an artefact that one of my museum curating relatives had placed an exhibit on display. The item on display was a long lost piece of a royal insignia, which when discovered, people just decided to put one and two together to make five and decide that our entire family was a line of thieves. Our sales in the merchant district tanked, our reputation for getting people to go on exploratory expeditions was tarnished. We basically got the shit end of the broom used to clean up the mess left by the circus animals." He wasn't aware just how true the Thief of Thieves thing was though for his family history. {OO} *Minxie nods as she walks along with him listening to his story* well now...people are quick to judge without hearing the story besides finders keepers. *she says simply and looks at the paper then up at a group of merchants* ill ask these people if they know who this buisness guy is~ *she volenteers abd scurries up to the group* excuse me gentlemen... have you seen this buisness? *she gives them the name and nods to their answer* -just downt he road missy cant miss it, the sign is big and green' says a shop owner that was talking to the group- ah thank you sir~ *she waves to them and motions for oliver to come with her* its just up the road! {OO} Oliver, following after Minxie, found the shop in question and inside a portly man with a moustache extending from his sideburns a few inches out past his face Ulysses S Grant style. Well they were here for a job so, "Hello sir, we got word of your predicament and decided to come lend you our aid. Seeing as the dullards in question aren't around at the moment, we could lie in wait for them and then spring a trap like-" Oliver leapt up on a small piece of furniture, arms spread wide and his jacket ends held in both hands to spread it like wings, "-SURPRISE ASSHOLES!" Though Oliver didn't realize the group in question was already on its way to collect its 'rpotection fee' {OO} *Minxie giggles and looks around* yes yes we will help. to suprise someone you must blend in~ *she ties a scarf over her head to make herself look like a normal villager as she browses the shop* hmm letsee here... ohhh~ i love this little thing~ *she holds up a small stuffed sheep, pink in color with little button eyes* i think i shall buy this sir~ *she says as the goons walk in, she walks over to the till and puts the sheep on the counter. her back was to the group as she hums a nice tune, her ears listening in on them. getting a feel for the number and the wieght they carry with their footsteps. she looks to the hop keeper and winks* i heard from betty you have a nice statue of a dove~ would you be a gentleman and find it in the back please? how i love a dove statue~ *she says descretely dismissing the man to the backroom where it was one way in one way out and she would be the bericade between the shop keeper and the goons who were grunting behind her* {OO} Well they were dealing with a bunch of muscle speak mages it seemed, as by the looks of their inhuman muscle shapes and sizes. "You gentlemen look like you need a gym membership!" Seriously? He went there? Oliver has a death wish or something. But that wasn't the problem, the problem was that one of them who had a short temper tried to rush Oliver right away. Kicking his cane from underneath himself and spinning it in the air with a bright blue glow, a magical circle was created, "Stellar Circle Number Three!" A concussive blast of energy erupted from the circle, flying out like a short range laser that shoved the guy right on out through the open door and into a park bench. "You all saw that, self-defense aaaaand I seem to have annoyed the rest of you, fantastic." Hopping down to the floor and walking right between them with his hands held up high, Oliver walked right on by the gentlemen and outside, "Now guys, let's all just calm down, we can settle this like adults, you know, civilized and whatnot. Your friend is gonna get up just fine see? I mean it's not like I could take you all on my own, who am I to pressure you from stopping your extortion game? I'm just a single mage!" He was clearly stalling and trying to signal something. {OO} *Minxie watches the other and smiles as they seem to follow Oliver's lead. Minxie raises her hand like a police man would their guns, left palm open flat, and the right curled up in a partial fist, pointer finger extended forwards and thumb straight up* Water make Pistol! *she announces as water erupts from the cicle created forming a gun in the matter on a second. her hand grabs the new made weapon out of the air and aims it straight at the closest goon. she smirks excitedly and shoots, a twing! sounding through the air as the shot punctures into the muscle of the right shoulder of her opponent, the pain enough to make the goon wince and growl at her as he turns to look at the water wizard* awe did i poke the monkey?are you mad?wats wrong you monkeys into little boys?? *she asks as her hands redo the same hand sign*water make arsenal: shotgun! * minxie walks out of the shop having the group inbetween her and oliver* common you scum lets dance! *She cheers and pumps the berral a shk-shk sound comming from the h2o weapon* {OO} While one more of the muscle speak fools went down for a moment, the other that Oliver had toppled over was getting up and changing his muscles to focus on his calves and thighs, getting a great boost in speed and kick ability! This spelled trouble for Oliver who had just gotten punted by that calf crazy creepazoid, clearly clammoring for concepts with the letter C. Oliver, while midflight, was engulfed in a quick flash of light, changing his appearance entirely and the overall shape and function of his cane! "Twila!" Oliver's scarf changes into a super long scarf that has openings on the end to act liek gloves so that the scarf itself is like a pair of sleeves to go with a sleeveless top whose collar goes up to his nose with bagginess. A pair of white shorts that goe just past his knees and black shoes with white soles that goe halfway up his shins adorn his lower body. The cane changes from a single cane-length item to a pair of 'canes' that are so much similar in shape to the base shape with a wider arc as if scythe-like hooks, they are linked together by a magical tether that can solidify, extend and retract. The tether is metaphysical, meaning that it can be passed through and will give a shock to those it touches, but it cannot be grabbed. He spun his left hook around via the tether a few times before throwing it, "Great Reach!" As if caught in a vacuum that collapsed in on itself, the hook shot with great ferocity, latching onto by coiling around a light post. "Yank!" And then, just as quickly as Oliver had gotten airborne, he was pulled straight back to the ground, unleashng the hook from the light post, utilizing a third ability of the tethered pair, getting it to come right back to his free hand and getting a corkscrew spin from the torque, and while midair and coming toward the ground, there was another flash of light. Again Oliver's cane and outfit changed, into that of a squire's garb and a massive shield. The shield itself is simplistic but the adornments of the original cane being used as the handle and embroidered canes held in the mouths of different animals on the front of it. Oliver's scarf becomes a cloth veil hanging over the back of his head with light plating on the top to fasten the knight style face mask on the front of it. His top becomes sleeveless with a wrist length gauntlet on the left hand and a shoulder length gauntlet on his right. His pants become leather-ish with plating on the shins and down the feet, suspenders keeping the pants up over the shoulders due to the plates' weight. With that all done, Bulwark crashed into the ground with great force, sending cobble stone this way and that in every direction with Oliver in the epicenter of it all. {OO} *Minxie eyes the muscle creeps and lets out a small exhale when one chifts its form, kicking her teammate into the air. what looked to be utterly painful also seemed to give oliver a chance to get equipped. She squeaks when the earth shatters and rumbles, making her form shake with it. She was suprised at the power the other had in just his landing alone, add some nifty dress and weapon chnages and she was in awe* wow~ so thats what its like to be a higher class~ *she lets out a small girlish giggle and aims at the same muscle guy who she had shot a moment earlier. The brownette narrows her eyes refocusing* alright your mine! *She lets ehr shot fly a loud squishy broop! resounds as the shot rings out, hitting the man in the chest. the muscly wierdo flexes his chest and gets out a growling rawr as the shot simply pushes him back* are you kidding me?! how the hell do you not get blown in two?! *She squaks at the chuckling enemy in a squeakish voice* that is it! i hate you all! *she yells at the ape-like male in a feat to intimidate it into defeat* {OO} While hindered in terms of movement in this form, Oliver was more than capable of maneuvring around! "Egret!" Clacking his massive shield off of the ground and then lifting it upwards, he let himself get rocketed up about ten feet by a small bubble barrier beneath his feet, landing near Minxie. "Howdy." Spinning around and going on the defensive with the door sized shield to keep her from getting hit, "Soooo here's the thing. I know we aren't supposed to damage much if at all, but this thing ain't exactly a dainty ballerina. Gonna need ya ta get to the fightin, savvy?" He was absorbing blow by blow, the shield's animals starting to light up one by one as it stored all the kinetic output into it. He had to even grab and spin his colleague around to get to her other side and block an onslaught from two of the goons at once with the shield, backing up toward the store entrance, creating a good defensive bottle neck. "Also, just telling them you hate them isn't gonna make them stop trying to punch us, just an eff-why-eye." {OO} *Minxie smiles to her comrad and moves with him as he explains the plan* alright i got it~ *She inhales and thrusts her hands out the bottom of her palms comming together, a magic circle apearing between her fingers that she bends and connects at the tips, like a shark bite* water make shark! *She growls and a large whoosh of water shoots from the jaw-like makeup of her hands. Before the water forms it would move with high speed past the enamies that were hitting the shield. pushing them back with enough force to send them 6 meters backwards. The water jet collects into a large shark-like figure that lets out an earpiercing growl, its body was nearly see-through, jaws open wide showing off 13 rows of razor sharp teeth*shark bite!! *She shouts the order and moves her hands still together as the sharks tail starts swishing from side to side rapidly. The attack aimed to eat two opponents, if the attack shall fail it will result in the shark relocating in the sky above for another round* {OO} Well that was one guy taken down. Or rather, one guy sent flailing and screaming due to an intense phobia of sharks and having gotten bit by the shark spell that the water make mage had created. Meanwhile, Ari was getting tired of being on the defnesive and slammed his shield down into the ground, activating all the lit up creatures adorning the shield, creating a dome of interlocked hexagons that caught the next blow sent its way, "Tortoise." All the built up force and the latest blow got sent out half-fold from the shield. But even half power, the strength of twenty punches over the course of thirty seconds will feel like ten in a single blow. As was evidenced by the thug that got the blow straight in the stomach and was brought to his knees. "Okay, these guys might not be the toughest of enemies, but they are definitely persistent." {OO} *Minxie grins and opens her hands makign a butterfly with her palms* water make giant butterfly!! *She grins bigger as the shark morfs, slowly expanding into a large butterfly shape, her hands go from a virtical position to a horazontal and the butterfly comes crashing down on the group with the force of 1 ton. The water weight woudlnt cause danage to the earth as it splatters on the ground* i have a plan please keep them distracted~ *she says as the group is soaked to the boen with her water spell. She puts her hand to her chest and whispers* water make melt~ *her skin melting slowly into the ground out of eyesight of the men as the shield blocks the view* {OO} "Oh yea, no, don't worry. I will keep them occupied while you just, go wherever. No biggie." Oliver was just talking to the air by now as Minxie disappeared while Oliver was left getting a pummeling on his shield, just chrging up for another blast. The problem was that with only so much directional defense, he had no defense on other sides, where an ally could stand and defend his back. Something that the brutes were trying to take advantage of! Flanking around him, they tried to get Ollie's side, but he was already pulling himself up and over the top of his shield, kicking it so that it stood on one angled point and with a second kick, started spinning. "Stellar Circle number one!" A blue glow one second and the next a thin radial blast of magical energy sent them all backwards with some pain, and staggering them for a combo attack to finish them all off, "Any time now wherever the hell you went Minxie!" {OO} *Minxie was positioning herself inside the water as oliver takes the offensive and also their attention,her hands clamp together as she stares up through the waters surface, seeming like she was in a pool and looking up at the sufrace.circles form on the waters surface, pulling the thugs in one by one into what seemed to be just a wet street, the wizards yelp and disapear. She takes out three of the 5 and reamerges from the water clear at first then retaking her origonal form. water drips from her cloths and hair * 2 left~ what shall we do...hmm..*SHe grins hungrely at the two left over her hands slowly raising, her breaths comming out as pants as she takes a step forward towards them* they didnt hurt you did they oliver?? *she asks as she inches towards her partner* {OO} The other two, seeing their comrades disappear into the briney deep on a local street, just kind of give up out of sheer terror. Meanwhile, Oliver, who was now sitting on top of his doorshield, had a look of bewilderment and slight worry, looking at her, "Uhhh, I'm okay, are those three gonna be? I mean, you are a legal mage, you can't go drowning anyone unless you absolutely have to." {OO} *Minxie calms and giggles* yesh they are fine. they are being held in my prison~ *She answers and turns her head towards the fightened two left. She makes a flat palm with her left hand and culrs the fingers on her right, bringing them together she summons the water prison that lifts up out of the water, the three uncontious inside it. she swallows up the last two and they end up in the prison with the others* well all done, cant say we didnt leave anyting unharmed...*she lets go of her hands position and the prison and the criminals are stred away until she takes them out of their holding cell later. she walks back into the store and grabs her paid merchendise and lets the store keeper out of the backroom* your safe now. thankyou for the sheep~ *she smiles and leaves the store* {OO} "Well that's all fine and dandy about them being alive still, but you know we can't leave yet right? We have to wait for the Rune Knights to arrive to escort them away before we can leave. Gotta get the job paper stamped with approval." Oliver made a strong case for them to wait, and wait he would, until the Rune Knights did indeed arrive and exchange a stamp for the taking of the five criminals, carting them off to Whothehellcares Prison. {OO} *MInxie does as told and gives the criminals to the knights getting the first job done. her eyes shining as she stares at the stamp* WOW!!! we did it! we got it done!! eeee yayyY!!!!!! *she squeals and picks up oliver in a hyper spinning hug before she lets him go and skips around* heheheee~ i so kicked butt!!

Ringvale Hollow

-Rezz was sitting out in the training courtyard behind the guildhall enjoying some of the early morning air, he was half meditating half waiting for the new recruit to show up. Azuma had told him hed be testing a new candidate to join the guild and to test her in the usual fasion, and aside from her being a celestial wizard he didnt know anything else about who she was. He could feel someone approaching and stood up off the ground and tilted his head to the sides until his neck popped and then rolled his shoulders to loosen up his joints. Crossing his arms Rezz paced a bit as the sounds of light footsteps drew closer and spoke out before seeing who was coming. "I hope you're ready to be testedwhoever you are, we here at Ghost Smile strive to be the strongest wizards both in magic power and physical prowess" Rezz stopped his pacing and waited patiently for them to come out to face him so that this trial could begin.-

vampyrerah: Ahnesti walked up, still quiet and sighed softly. "I suppose there's only one way to find out." She said. her voice soft like a summer breeze. She was a petite girl with long crimson hair braided to one side, Her eyes a bright jade green and complexion like a porcelain doll. She stretched her arms and legs stood before him waiting. She looked at the man with his back to her and waited for him to turn to face her. One hand on her hip and the other hanging loosely by her side. She was calm and collected where she stood, though she seemed slightly reserved. 

-Rezz turned and faced her, she was clever being able to sneak around him like that when it sounded as if she was coming from the other direction. She was smaller than he was but the size of a wizard rarely determined their strength or their tenacity. "Indeed there is, now call upon your spirits and we shall begin the first part of your trial." Rezz took up a simple kung fu stance and surrounded his arms and legs in his shadow arms spell and steeled himself for what she might first throw at him, he had hoped she would have at least one or two powerful spirits for him to face off against. Rezz had never met the challenge of a celestial wizard before and was anxious for an oppertunity to square off against one, even if only as a test for acceptance in the guild.-

vampyrerah: She grabbed the golden key from her hip and moved it in a triangular motion, "I call upon the celestial spirit, Polaris!" She called out and when the tip of the key touched the tip of the triangle, it opened up and out burst a large, bear. She smiled lightly and looked up at the large creature. "Are you doing well today, Polaris?" she asked quickly. The bear looked at her and nodded, then looked at the man before them. It pointed at him and she nodded. "But it's just a test. Sparing basically." It nodded and took it's own readied stance. It gently pushed her back out of the way and she stood there, waiting quietly for what the man had in mind for them.

-Her spirit was protective of her, thats good it meant they cared for and trusted her. Rezz smirked a bit and charged in to close in on the spirit, when he was just a few feet away he jumped up and performed a series of roundhouse kicks ta the bears chest and head seeing how well it would block or absorb the blows without him using the full extent of his spell by it not using its detonating effect when his kicks either landed or were blocked. If Polaris asnt able to block the kicks it would be sent tumbling off to the side a few feet but if it did manage to block Rezz would bound off it and land about ten feet away back where he started again.-

vampyrerah: "Block!" she commanded with a deep respect for the spirit in her voice. The bear then instantly held up it's arms and blocked his attack. Ahnesti smiled and praised him. "Great job, big guy!" She looked up at the spirit the the greatest admiration. "keep it up!" She cheered him respectively. The bear then thrust his arms out and pushed back against the man kicking at him. She waited in anticipation to see if the man was deflected, her heart racing in her chest. She hadn't been so excited and anxious about anything in years. 

-Rezz's kicks were blocked well enough and he rebounded off the spirits defenses and landed back where he began as he planned, her spirit was tough but just how tough was it? Rezz planned on finding out just how much this spirit could take but to do that hed have to get though its defences and put in a little more effort. He gave the spirit a quick wink and melted into the ground using his shadow dive ability allowing him to move much quicker as a shadowy blurr on the ground. He quickly moved back in and ziped around the bear spirit in tight circles. in this form the bear wouldnt be able to hurt him by merely stomping or punching the ground but Rezz wasnt going to give it a chance. as he came up infront of it again Rezz leaped out of his shadow form directly infront of Polaris leading his sudden rise with a shadow covered fist aimed to punch the spirit in its lower jaw. wether Rezz's punch landed or not the full effect of his arms spell would be unleashed and at the moment of impact the shadows surrounding his fist would cause a concussive blast as strong as a stick of dynamite exploding and would send the spirit flying up and back if he hit it where he was aiming.- 

vampyrerah: The spirit took the hit, and he went flying into the air, then vanished into the spirit realm. "POLARIS!" she cried and looked at the man. She had no malice behind her eyes and she reached to her hip once again and grabbed a key quickly. She knew the ones she had by just the feel of them. "I call upon the spirit of, PISCES!" she cried out and moved her key in the triangular shape and once again the tip meeting the top of the triangle; the spirits of the zodiac Piscese appeared. "Ahnesti, honestly what trouble have you gotten yourself into?" the man said and smirked. "A test." is all she said and the woman smirked. "I see, you finally decided to join a guild. I was starting to worry about you." she said and the man huffed. "why? She has us? Aren't we good enough?" The woman crossed her arms and gave him a chastised look. He sighed and looked around at the man and pointed over his shoulder, "This him?" Ahnesti nodded softly and he pushed her back and to the side again. "Well, Shall we Mother?" he asked and the woman grinned a toothy grin and nodded. "Lets dance." she said and she readied her stance, as did the boy with her.

-Polaris was sent packing by Rezz's attack and as sure enough upset the young celestial mage enough for her to pull out her big guns, Pieces one of the twelve zodiacs was called forth and was a pair of fish like people. This threw Rezz off a bit as the stories behind these zodiacs sually described them as giant eals or fish, no matter though This is what Rezz really wanted to see from the girl her full extent of what she could summon and it seemed she wasnt going to hold back anymore. As she conversed with her spirits Rezz decided to get this next bit started and unleashed one of his more powerful spells "Shadow god cannon, storm." extending both his hands forward palms facing out a hailstorm of bullet sized shadows fired in rapid succession at the spirits feet. Rezz wasnt trying to actually hit them with this spell just yet he wanted to see how quick they could react and dodge the onslaught well enough for them to try and counter his attack by mounting one of their own. "You two better pay attention or you might get hit."-

vampyrerah: The pair instantly dodged and the woman huffed. "Enough of this," she grumbled and with one feld kick, created a cresent wave of water, soaking the area with water. The man with her smirked. "well, now that I'm limbered up, lets dance." he said and held the trident he had in his hand this whole time. He lunged toward the man and waves emerged from the tip of his trident, aiming to wrap around the man, water shooting toward him like a bullet connected to a string. "Do you prefer the tango or a waltz?" he jeered with amusement. Ahnesti stood back watching, but She was now tense and held herself in a determined stance. "Pisces cresent kick again!" She cried out to the woman and immediately she obeyed. With another kick of her foot, she sent a torrential wave of water that seemed to just push the male toward his opponent quicker, with more velocity. He grinned as he neared the man faster. 

-A coordinated attack, very nice indeed. These spirits used teamwork well enough and the wizard behind them directed them with practiced ease, this was turning out to be a fun morning so far. Water flooded the coutyard at the female spirits first kick and her second propelled her counterpart faster at Rezz with a jet of water coming at him with even higher velocity, this gave Rezz a fun idea on how to handle this it was risky but if he was able to pull it off would definately be amusing to anyone who might be watching off in the disatnce. Sweeping his left leg back in a wide arc Rezz turned his body to the side and arched his back to avoid the stream of water coming at him. He stayed like this long enough for the male spirit to get in close enoough and when he was Rezz reached out in an attempt to grab his trident and use it against him by pushing the tip of it into the ground and force him to polevault over it and roll along the ground. If Rezz somehow missed the trident there wouldnt be enough time for the zodiac to get out of the way and the two men would collide with one another and come crashing to the ground anyways, but Rezz woulnd be pinned under it for long as he would just resume his shadow form to get some distance again and reemerge ready and waiting for the spirits next possible attack.-

vampyrerah: The man had a feeling he was going to aim for his trident, and just before he could get close enough, he used his trident, aimed it at the ground and and vaulted over the man with ease, smirking at him as he rounded over him like an olympian vaulter over a low bar. As soon as he landed he took off for the man again with great speed, but instead of grabbing him looked over at the woman and smirked, "MOM! Cresent!" he shouted and she smirked. She used her cresent kick once more and he combined his power of his trident with hers and suddenly there was a torrent of water beams crashing down relentlessly. They combined their powers to create a move that was like a down pour in the middle of spring, yet with the strength of a meteor falling to the earth. it was both beautiful and extremely hard to avoid as the beams of water. Ahnesti looked at them with the greatest of admiration and respect. "CRECENDO!" Ahnesti called out and the two suddenly became their eel like fish forms and snapped at the man between beems of water that rained down still. 

-these spirits were quick and angile no doubts there, but Rezz was more or less toying with them at this levelbeing it was just to test Ahnestis abilities rather than fight against her in earnest. Torents of water were all around him and baring down fast as Rezz dove back into his shadow form and slipped away as the water came crashing down on where he was just a second before. With all the water that was pouring and crashing down made it easy for hi to slip away unseen and circle the courtyard, though it couldnt be seen Rezz had a playful smile on his face and decided to have a little fun and snuck up on Ahnesti ever so quietly and rose up from his shadow form just a few feet behind her and spoke loudly enough to hopefully make her jump a bit in surprise. "You know the grounds keeper will be furious when he finds out that the court yards been flooded like this, probably wont dry for at least days." If she turned to face him as he spoke Rezz would be asually standing there inspecting his gloved hand and acting as though he was picking dirt from under his nails as if he had been waiting for her for some time before lifting his gaze to her. "First parts done, you can send them home so we can begin the second part of your trial. Time to see how well you can use those swords of yours." Rezz stood ready and drew his sword feeling the tingling of its magic reading his as it always did when someone drew it and stood ready with his gaurd up  to see how she would strike at him.-

vampyrerah: She held up her fist and the torrent stopped, she nodded her thanks and appreciation to her spirits and they went back to the spirit realm. she quickly drew her swords and turned around, Looking at him calmly. She had a resolve behind her eyes. She smirked a little and as she turned she braced herself into a readied stance and waited quietly for him to make his move. Her heart skipped a beat. the thought of using her blades again excited her as much as summoning her spirits to her side. She licked her lips. She raised her swords and watched him intently. Her eyes unblinking as she watched his every step. She moved when he moved, not letting her guard down. She thought out a scenereo of moves he could start out with. "No magic. Meelee only." she stated, again her voice calm and soft. She thought different attack scenereos over in her head with every step and move he made. Noticing that he wasn't going to strike first, she tested the waters and brought one of her swords down at him. She hated striking first, but it was a test so she intitiated. She was quick and moved, striking from the left.

-He didnt reply to her request of no magic, this part of her exam didnt require the use of it and he wasnt about to spoil a fight of steel against steel with magic. She had to be tested in the three basics of wizards combat after all and Rezz was enjoying giving this exam. The feirceness of her eyes and the aura of determination coming off of her felt somewhat familiar as if she mirrored him at a young age when he was learning the basics. Her strike was quick but not very refined and Rezz quickly brought his sword up to defend and parry the blow away from his body with enough force that her arm would be stretched out to her side some leaving an opening for him to strike back at her, but instead of going after the opening he struck at her opposite side where she still had a sword ready and waiting to gaurd herself with. His strike came in as if he was to pierce into her stomach just below the ribs on her right side but he only extended his arm enough that if she missed blocking him the wound left would be quite shallow but still would make moving too fast somewhat painful, he didnt intend to kill herand wanted to make sure that if things went bad for her she could still walk away from this.-  

vampyrerah: She watched his movements, and drew her leg up and with her other sword, parried his attack and came down quickly with the other sword, aiming at his shoulder. She wasn't really putting her entire weight into it, she kept going over and over in her head, "It's just a test, It's just a test." She her eyes burned with determiniation. She swung her other sword at his torso, knowing he would dodge and block, but this gave her an opening to step back for a moment and see what his next move would be. She panted lightly and smirked, a soft giggle could be heard. She was actually having fun. She was enjoying this little bout of sword's play. She looked up at him and a lock of her crimson hair fell down into her face, framing her bright jade eyes and she readied her stance, waiting for his move now. She again played all the scenereos and possible attacks out in her head, waiting patiently. She took the time to also look him over better, taking in his features to memory and locking them away. Ahnesti was hoping with everything in her she could join this guild. Deep down, she prayed that she could pass the tests.

-His blow was stopped and she prevented herself from injury as expected and Rezz quickly brought his sword back and up at the ready again. rezz kept careful watch over her movements and postures while they dueled, whoever had taught her to use her swords didnt give her much more training than to just cover the basics it seemed. Or at least thats how it appeared on the surface but the look in her eyes gave something away, she seemed to be heavily concentrating on him infront of her and seemed to be loosing focus on the surroundings something that might have to be addressed later on but for now he Rezz had to keep evaluating her skills. She came at him with both blades this time one from above and the other following from the side. Raising his sword overhead and keeping th blade perpendicular to hers the two swords rang out as they clashed and Rezz sidestepped as they did and pushed the swod down with the gaurd of his own and have the two locked blades to clash with her second attacking sword. With the three blades locked together Rezz stepped forward and wraped his foot behind her leg in an attempt to trip her and make her fall if not to push her back some, ether she fell or not Rezz would take a few steps back and have his sword at the ready again for her to stand back up and ready herself again.-

vampyrerah: With swords locked, she stared up into his eyes. she felt his leg wrap around hers and she wrapped her other leg around his waist and pulled with a strength she didn't look as if she could have. This pulled her closer to him, her body pressed against his to stabalize her from falling, and an opportunity free her blades. She pushed up with her arms, using her leg as leverage and as she pushed up, she pushed back, freeing her blades and in one swift moved brought the hilt of one down into his ribs with a hard "thud." She unwrapped her leg from his and turned her body around and swung her blades together at the same time toward his other side. and she flipped them so the sharp didn't penetrate since she had such a strong swing. She aimed for his other ribs hoping to make contact. She knew that when it came to sword fights, there was no such thing as personal space. someone swinging a large blade of metal at you, you can either run from it, or run to it. She couldn't remember the last time she ran. This wasn't going to be any different. Her eyes flashed again and she readied her blades once more, panting and waiting, watching him quietly. 

Guest_Garousen: Azuma heard the sounds of steel against steel as he sat in his office, tapping at the annoying bright thing on his desk that simply would not cooperate. “Bah…if I could find a book on this…” he grumbled in frustration. He knew the odd white thing controlled the little arrow on the screen, but that was as far as it went. He shook his head, standing and walking to the elevator, which opened the moment he arrived. He entered, going down to the main hall, then walking around the side and up a flight of stairs to the training yard, intending to watch the potential new member’s test—from a distance, of course. Spotting Rezz and the new person…what was her name again? He’d figure it out later. Spotting the two of them at the opposite end of the courtyard—he’d obviously missed something, there was water everywhere—he moved in a bit closer, stopping just far enough away as not to impede them or put himself at risk.

"Ugh" Rezz grunted as the hilt of her sword hit him hard in his side and caused him to lose what grip he had on her and she freed herself from their close quarters and she struck at him again from the other side with both swords at once. She was clever using him to keep herself upright and to free her blades the way she did, but no time to admire her cunning now Rezz had to stop these swords from landing another blow on him. Her swing was strong and fast but Rezz was able to bring his sword up just in time to stop them from striking home and used his free hand to give him a bit more leverage in preventing them from pushing him back any. Rotating his blade as the swords were still close together so the three ran almost parrallel  Rezz made fast circular motions with his sword around hers until he was able to loosen her grip on them enough that with a quick motion he was able to seperate her hands from her swords and send them clattering to the muddy ground a few feet away.  "And now, on to round three. Unarmed combat." Rezz was smiling a bit at that as he stabed the tip of his sword into the ground instead of sheathing it and took a few paces away from it as he circled Ahnesti and stopped once she was between him and his sword and took up a kick boxing stance and had his arms up at the ready and used his hands to wave her in to try and attack him.-

vampyrerah: She immediately turned around watching him then watched his stance and eyed him carefully. She evaluated and then smirked, she thought to herself. "what the hell, it's hand to hand, you're going to get hit, might as well take it." then she bolted into a run and with started to punch and kick at him. She moved with speed and agility and strength fuled by determination and adrenaline. Her boots squishing in the mud, and splashes of water landed on the skin that she did have exposed. Sweat beading on her brow and hair sticking to her face she continued her assaults one by one, her fist moved toward him, her leg coming up and attempting to make contact. The fierce fire in her eyes with every turn of her body. Every muscle contracting and then extending. She put her whole heart into her swings. She knew she would have to take a few hits, but that's all part of the process. no one can walk away from a fight without one or two knocks. So, she again, ran to it.

-She didnt hesitate at all and ran headlong into this final bout, this pleased Rezz quite a bit with some serious training at his and the other members of the guild she would fit in nicely. But he wouldnt tell her that just yet as she was coming at him with everything she had. Throwing quick punches and fast kicks from multiple angles, Rezz was having a bit of a difficult time in blocking them all but kept his composure as he fended off her flurry of blows using his forarms and shins getting himself splattered with mud and water as much as she was. After a few more of her punches were pushed aside Rezz found the small opening he was waiting for and struck back at her by thrusting his palm into her right arm just below the elbow to push her arm accross her body to keep her from trying to throw another punch with her left and followed up with a kick to her abdomin and quickly stepping up with a follow up elbow to her chest, she had a smaller frame than most he fought against and so had to measure his blows more carefully but he wasnt holding back as much now. The point of fighting unarmed like this in the trial was to determine just how much punishment one could dish out and take in a fight so he had to put an effort into his attacks.-

vampyrerah: Ahnesti grunted and gasped and then held her breath, falling onto the wet, muddy ground. She growled out her breath and gritted her teeth and clenched her jaw. She'd taken worse and in the blink of an eye she jumped up and attacked with more fury and she managed to grip his collar and then pulled herself toward him, using him as her anchor. She wrapped her arms around his waist, locking her ankles and then let go, pushing herself back and down. She used her body to pull him over him, her fingers digging deeply into the soggy ground. She pulled him with every ounci of strength in her legs and flipped him over, letting to and slidding under him and swung herself up and over, her heels landing on his shoulders to push him farther down. she got up crouched, her face wet and muddy, only intensifying her eyes. She panted as her hair stuck to her face and neck. She panted and watched him. Waiting...

-He nocked her down but she didnt stay down for very long and was back on the attack again. Her small spry frame gave her an agile edge and she was able to grab hold of Rezz and wrap her legs around his waist and with all her might tried to flip him up over her and and to drop him on the ground. She might have agility on her side but Rezz had strength on his and when her upper body reached for the ground below her Rezz stepped back with his left leg and bent his right knee some to better anchor himself as his arms took hold of her by her waist and held fast his footing on the ground. For a moment they were locked in this position each of them pulling against the other trying to gain the upper hand in leverage until Rezz  used his right leg to push at Ahnestis arm to make them both buckle and drop down to the ground with his left leg under him. Rezz held onto her as they dropped and once he was sitting and her laying in the muddy ground Rezz leaned forward as he raised his right arm up and brought his elbow down on her body just where her ribcage would end, but stopped a mere inch before his blow would land with his eyes locked on hers. His gaze in his eyes said without words that he couldve easily struck her in this vulnerable position beforemoving his arm away and letting go with his other hand so that they both may untangle themselves and stand back up again as he spoke aloud again. "This trial is over, you did well...." As Rezz got back up he called out to Azuma who had been watching nearby "What do you think boss, she would fit in nicely here."

Guest_Garousen: Walking over to the pair of them, Azuma responded, “Indeed she would, though she could do with some training.” He looked at the new girl, offering a hand to help her up. “I am Azuma Matsumoto, the Master of this guild. And, I’m sorry, your name is…?” He knew he SHOULD know her name, Ringvale Hollow was by no means a large town—unless she’d come from somewhere else. “Of course, I see no issue allowing her to join, if you believe she’s done well enough to pass.”

vampyrerah: She took his hand and stood up. "Ahnesti Raganis. It's a pleasure sir." She said, her voice soft as the summer breeze. She then fell silent and looked to the man she had just fought. waiting for his reply. She was a mess and a half, mud in her hair, all over her face, and looking down, she noticed one of the straps on her top had snapped but she was thankful for her leather shrug. 

"I should introduce myself as well, Rezz Kain and let me be the first to welcome you into the Ghost Smile wizards guild." Rezz walked over to where their swords were and collected the blades handig Ahnesti hers and swatting the mud off his own before sheathing it and looking himself and her over as they were both covered in mud. "I guess i should show you to the ladies locker area so you can get yourself cleaned up before we get you situated here in the guild, his way." Rezz started walking back inside but waited by the door for her to catch up to him so he could direct her to where she could clean herself up and where she could find him in the main room afterwards and headed off to clean himself up as well.-

Black Tower

KanedaSoturi: An explosion can be heard in the distance, a cloud of dust kicking up as, just outside of Metarch, a tower began to rise. Black in color, adorned with what appeared to be gemstones, the tower soon loomed ominously over the town, casting a shadow reaching clear to the Guild Compound. Kaneda sat on the second floor of the Guild Hall, watching the tower ascend, wincing at the loud, grinding scrape sound as it stopped, then hearing what seemed to be a pitched, maniacal giggle echo surreally through the air. She blinked, not entirely sure what to make of it as she walked out to the balcony. "Just what in the hell was that...?" she wondered to herself as she looked a bit concernedly at the tower, motioning Valerius to her side. “Gather all the magic users you can, quickly. I don’t like the looks of this, we’ll need all the help we can get.” With that, the large man nodded and leapt off the hall, landing solidly on the ground and running at top speed across the compound towards the tavern, in hopes of finding any mage he could, guild member or not.
KatsuoOda: -A young man with bleach blonde hair and corn gold eyes was in town purchasing some sound lacrimas from the magic shop that fuels his guitar, as he exited the store people heard a large bang, crash, and started running while screaming and covering their ears. "Hey hey that wasn't me i dont even have it out..." he turned around, looming over the magic shop was an incredibly large and tall tower, black in color. "DAH HELL IS THAT THING?!" his jaw dropped and his eyes popped out of his head. his face strightened out as he put his shopping bag on his back and tied it to his guitar strap and started running back towards the guild hall. strangest thing was he heard something else getting closer, like someone was... he turned around a spotted a man running don the tower. "the fu-" he started running faster, only this guy was running a bit more faster. Aren made it to the doors of the guild hall panting his life away, that was a hard run. He face planted on the guild hall's cold surface. "I leave for 10 minutes to get more energy for my guitar and yall done fuckered somthin up..." he said between pants. "Let me lie here..." it looked like steam was comedically rolling off the soles of his shoes. "I'm pooped."-
Guest_roxas123243: Aetheros woke with a start, he woke up and got dressed, then looked at the black tower, as he sheathes his revolver, he stares at it, wondering what the hell that thing was. He Dresses in and starts packing his tent, and also shutting his camp down, he quickly doused the flames that he used the night before to cook his food, and also disposed of the remaining food so he can use the area again for his camp. He dove into the small stream and cleaned up. He headed to the town by using the woods as a back way in so whatever that was, or whoever it was did not see him. He briskly ran, advoiding the vines, and whatever else is in that forest. He appears outside the opposite end of the town, the side that is farthest away from the newly risen spire. He looks at it, now closer to it, then his camp in the woods, “Just, what in the hell is that thing?” shakes his head, that is still wet, he reaches back and then ties it back using a black hair tie.
Andikins: {OO} Oliver Oxford, riding a bit of the high from his championship victory at the Starry Sky Tournament, was resting with some well deserved break time as a day off. Though it was cut short by the violent shaking and loud sounds of a giant tower rising up from the ground. Oliver rolled off of the hammock he had set up in his room, planted onto the ground face first, "Bluh." Oliver got up off the ground, grabbing his cane and getting dressed, heading out of his room with a groggy look on his face until he saw what was rising up out of the ground, "Oh come on! Can we go one month without some cataclysm Guildmaster?!" He called up to the guildmaster when he finally walked outside, being one of the ready members to go. It was true that he was only a D-rank now, but Oliver's skill and cunning made him easily fight on par with A-ranks like in the tournament, so it was perfect that he would head off to the tower. "You uh, you want me to go there now or wait for someone else?" {OO}
GhostofSenyx: -Rezz had been back from his last job for a little over a week now, the man he encountered at the abandoned guild hall still fresh in his mind as was the debreifing he had to deal with upon his return. For nearly three hours he was in a meeting with the local guld masters telling them what he could of the man that called himself Gora. for all the time Rezz was drilled for information on what had happened Rezz didnt have much to tell them aside from this man luring in unsuspecting victims both mage and mundane to their dooms. After all that and word had spread of the dangerous madman on the loose Rezz began studying the tome he had aquired and started unlocking the secrets of poison god slaying magic, which it seems has taken similar effects on him as his shadow slaying magic did. Rezz's eyes have shifted from a gleaming silver to a menacing purple and his jet black hair was also gaining purple highlights. Learning this new magic was no easy task unlike when he had been forced to learn the shadow god slaying magic he was reputed to weild, He had infuzed the poison god slaying lacrema with his body as the book described so he was able to now consume poison as power like the shadows but refining his new abilities was difficult as the poisons he now weilded were highly deadly so finding a sparring partner to practice with was out of the question. Rezz had decided to take a break from his new found training and went out for a walk when he heard the rumbling sounds and the chaotic noises that followed. he watched as the ominous tower rose from the ground and he had a bad feeling about it, the tower was definately dangerous to the masses so something had to be done about it and quickly. Rezz looked about the guild compound and saw members of other guilds gathering outside and he decided to join them as there wasnt time to contact anyone from his guild and this would be better than trying to go at it alone. "If you all are going in there I'm going with you. Something tells me that tower holds something pretty nasty in its walls."
KanedaSoturi: Kaneda’s voice rang out over the arena’s loudspeaker: “Alright, now that we’ve all gathered. I’m sure you see that tower, if you don’t you’re either blind or oblivious. Does anyone know what it does, or where it-?” her voice was cut off as a male voice, tight with madness, overrode the speaker. “Good evening, ladies and gentlemen…I bring you the night’s entertainment. I am Gora; no doubt you know of me from that ABSOLUTE PUFFED-UP COCK of a Slayer. Ahem…but I digress. Before you, you see a tower. That was me, but you’ll never find me. So, I have a challenge for you: Solve my tower and defeat my champions, or I kill everyone in this –oh, not NOW, Bobbins!” a sharp crack and an animal scream could be heard. “As I said…solve my tower, defeat my champions or everyone dies. You have…oh, let’s say two weeks. Cheers and fishes!” With a snap, the voice was gone, causing most in the compound to panic. This was stopped when Kaneda spoke again, her voice urgent: “Alright…we need to neutralize that tower. Our lives could be at stake. Knowing that, who’s in?” A number of people stepped forward; she couldn’t see, but Kaneda knew all of her members that were in attendance were among them, as well as a few others from neighboring guilds.
KatsuoOda: -Aren sat up after a winded break, and spotted oliver, the guy that won part of the tournament using holder magic against that shadow slayer-person. Aren didn't exactly see many volunteer to join the escapade of the tower. He smacked in a new Lacrima for his guitar and fliped it to his back, and walked forward. "I'm not the best at fightin' with fists and magical power but if anybody needs a picker upper i got a few spells that'll help. I got family back home, i'm goin', for their sake, and for the sake of the children in town who be beleivin in me. I cin do this If'n ya give me a chance." he said, pulling his guitar around and holding it up in front of the guild master. she'd have her first Voulunteer. "them people out there is countin on us to save all their lives, If'n we don't step up to the plate an'do it now, Demon Howl, and the other guilds present will never hold the honor, bravery, and justice we guilds of light had for years. We just gotta try, for the sake of Magic, and everything that's right." the boy's face scrunched up a little at the end as he still held his guitar forward. "Let's give'em what for."-
Guest_roxas123243: Aetheros stars running towards the guild hall, he makes progress through the town, then he slows to a stop looking at the spire. He looks at what looks like jewels, and shakes his head. “With that, I can start a family.” Shakes his head again, then he advances to the guildhall. With twigs, small rocks, wet hair, and smelling like a fresh stream. His clothes still damp, but not giving him issues, he looks at the people there, and says “What happened? What is that thing? And most importantly, why is it here? Can’t we go two damn days without a cataclysmic event?” He sighs. “An’t no rest for the wicked. Right?” He looks over, at the guild hall. “Let’s see what there made of, Shall we?” He draws Pollux, his clothes changed, to lighter ones that he was wearing, and a cloth duster. The blade, still in gun form, he makes sure that it’s loaded, and also that his revolver is loaded with Enchanted Ammo. “All right, let’s give them a warm welcome!” He says, looking at the spire.”
Andikins: {OO} Oliver, looking over his shoulder the lad that helped him out in the gift shop from time to time, gave a smile as an idea got in his head, "Hey, Aren, what say you and me tackle the tower together? I'm sure ya know that I rely heavily on set forms, so something constant as a pick-me-up'll be great and a half." He then looked up at the guildmaster, "Did he say something about puzzles? And champions? Does anyone else think we should try to figure out what's in there if we can at all? You know, before we run in blind." {OO}

GhostofSenyx: "I cant tell you whats in there, but I know something about the man responsible for it being here" Rezz seemed to appear out of nowhere as he walked over to the Demon Howl wizards gathered planning to head for the tower and nodded at Oliver congradulating him for his victory in the tournament. He looked up at the Demon Howls guildmaster as he spoke loud enough for the assembled wizards to hear him clearly as he spoke. "His name is Gora, and a complete lunatic and powerfull wizard. I encountered him on my last job and gave a full account to all the local guild masters about him and I'll repeat myself now. Hes some kind of shapeshifting wizard from an long dissolved guild, he carries some kind of staff that from what i can tell uses some form of fire magic. He's definately off his rocker and should be considered highly unstable, granted I only saw him for a short time and this is all i know but its better than nothing. So if we're all thats going in we should do this as a team and i know I'm not a member of your guild but I will fight along side all of you to deal with this threat." Rezz looked each of the assembled wizards in the eye as he spoke this last sentence so they would see his earnesty as he adjusted the sword on his side "Master Kaneda, I didnt have time to send word to my guild at whats happening but if you could send word yourself I'm sure the boss will send some reinforcements to aid us both here and in the towwer"
Kaneda nodded as Rezz spoke. “Understood.  We have messengers en route to the other Council Guilds and their surrounding cities as we speak, anyone they can spare will meet us at the tower.”  With that, she spoke to the group.  “You heard the slayer—this Gora is dangerous.  No one goes off on their own.”  Valerius, Kaneda’s assistant, came up from behind her, tapping her on the shoulder and whispering in her ear.  “Right.  We should get going.”  Valerius nodded in agreement.  “Alright, any who are coming to help, with me.  And try not to get separated.”  At that, she turned, heading across the compound to the steps leading down the mountain, almost instinctively reaching for the pack of discs at her hip, just barely stopping herself as she remembered what they were dealing with.  Keeping this in mind, she slowly made her way down the steep but wide steps leading into town.
KatsuoOda: -Aren followed the others down the steps, but thought they wouldn't make it to the tower fast enough. "I have a faster means of transpertation... but it's not prefected yet. He rolled his guitar out and placed his fingers on the first key's alignment, this would be his first big show in front of other wizards, but he had to hold on to his excitement, as he started playing a beautiful melody on his electric guitar. As he did, it looked like silver dust was gathering in a circle around everyone. This spell was still in it's learning stages, and it was up tot he others to use it, but Aren wanted to give it a try. As the dust gathered, it started to form in the sky above everyone as Aren's song went into forte. ((https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n-Dh3ftkRAs )) then, as fast as it gathered, it exploded, and out folded magnificent shining silver wings, it was a dusty looking magic bird, it lowered and landed it's self and Aren walked up to it still playing it's song. "Does anyone wanna lift to the tower?" he asked while still trying to play. "we got two minutes to get there, i didn't finish writin the song yet. if you wanna ride get on it's back now, no worries he works like a real bird." he said as he hopped on the head of the bird and awaited the others. in order for the bird to stay, Aren must keep playing the sound magic that goes with it on his guitar, so he stood on it's head and continued as it raised it's head.-
Guest_roxas123243: Aetheros looks at the people entering the tower, he attempts to catch up to them, He also catches up with the group and also fallows along. He brushes the twigs, the leaves, and all of the debris that was caught in his hair. He also does this while walking, before he makes himself, known he makes himself look decent. “Ma’am, I wish to join you. My name is Aetheros, I use to be in the Military, and also I’m also a Re-quip mage. I am also looking for a guild. So, if it is fine, could I tag along with your lot?” He says, at the back of the line. He then smiles in excitement.
Andikins: {OO} Oliver walked up along the wings of the giant magical bird that his guildmate had conjured up. "This is one weird thing you got going for yourself here." Oliver plotted his rear right down on the center of the bird's back, "I like it." He just sat and waited, listening to the music while he polished the hook end of his cane with his scarf. "Think there will be in in flight movie?" {OO}
GhostofSenyx: -Rezz nodded one more time at the guildmaster and headed along with the grouphe considered getting on the magic bird with the others but wasnt sure whe he heard how long it would last and thought it best if he proceded on foot with the other half of the group so that if the tower were to attack they wouldnt all be at the same place at once and would have better chances of reaching it unscathed. "thanks for the offer but ill take the low road for now, but stay close to us on the ground so we dont get seperated and arrive at the tower at the same time" Rezz ran after and caught up with those still on the ground and proceded down the long stairs and headed in the direction of the tower with determination in his eyes. Whatever was going to happen in that tower Rezz would be ready for any of these champoins within no matter what they may know about him from what gora wouldve said about him.-
Kaneda looked at the man, who she vaguely remembered from the tournament.  “You may help if you like, the more we have helping the easier this will be.”  She shook her head as she looked at the bird; if she was going to fly, it would be on her own using her metals—she’d heard the two-minute limit, and was not about to risk it knowing it would take longer to reach the tower, even by air.  She walked quickly, the crowd parting to make way for the group as they started making their way through the town.  She took a small vial of metals, mixed in an alcohol solution, from her hip pouch and knocked it back like a shot of tequila.  This vial contained large amounts of the metals she felt would be most useful, these being iron, steel, tin, pewter, zinc, brass and cadmium.  As soon as the mixture was absorbed, she began a slow burn of her tin, heightening all five of her senses to be able to sense any threat before it presented herself; unfortunately, this heightened state also heightened her sense of touch, making her feel her every step.  She didn’t need to look back; she felt the others following.
KatsuoOda: -He was suprised, only one person wanted to hop on his musical silver bird. maybe it was because it wasn't perfected yet. The one that did climb on the bird's back did make Aren smile a little bit. He liked his magic, or was it his music? either or it didn't matter it made him feel like his magic and music was going to fulfill it's usefulness at last. "Ye'like it? Watch this!" he recognised the boy from the tournament, It was Oliver, the boy that offered to help watch the consession stand. As he said for the boy to watch, Aren strummed his guitar louder as the song rose to Chorus, as he did, silver dust whipped up under the silver bird's wings as the bird made from that dust. It twisted it's head as it lifted from the ground, totally see-though, "there be your in flight movie. Metarch, bird eye view." Aren didn't take the bird too high, but from atop the buildings Metarch looked so beautiful, he only wished he could make the landing just as beautiful as the rise and flight. "I'm gonna lower the bird when i have to, when i do, jump. It won't be that high a leap, but all this open space, the fresh air... a great calm before the storm, aye mate?" he stopped talking to do a guitar solo in the song for silverbird, as he did the bird's wings flapped as it held it's altitude.-
Guest_roxas123243: Aetheros smiles, “I’d be honored, ma’am.” Then he fallows them. He also looks at the bird, and then thought. ‘Man, they’re going to get themselves hurt. But, I’m not even sure if that’s a person, or some type of bird.’ He shrugs and fallows the small group of people, he also has the revolver drawn, not to hurt, as a reflex. He did that when he entered a building that he did not know If that was a trap. He could not think back to basic training, and smile. He thought about the weapons training, and the handguns part of it. However, at one time, he was late, but not for anything, the weapons assignment. He was the last in line, dressed in his Camos. The officer that was assigning weapons looked at him, and shook his head. “Man, you’re very late. You missed getting your weapon.” He said. “Unless, you want that thing.” He points to the gunblade. “No one has been able to ‘draw’ it.” As he used air quotations. “If you can make the blade go back and bring the gun part out, I’ll assign it to you.” He said. Aetheros looks over it, and said. “I need some grease, Sir.” The officer hands it to him, he puts some in it, and with a grinding sound, and the springs go back to their possession for the gun to be workable. He pulls the trigger, and then shoots the wood in front of it, and then the wood goes everywhere. Aetheros snaps out of it, fallowing the group, and says quietly, “That was a good day.” Then he advanced with the small group.
Andikins: {OO} "Alright, when it starts lowering just jump?" Oliver should not ever be given directions like that, EVER. The moment he felt the bird lower in the slightest, he ran toward its head and kicked off of it, his cane tightly in his hand. Now he was heading straight down for the ground, "See you when you get there! We should stick together!" Now he probably jumped off too soon, but he did hook his cane around a tree branch, going around in a couple of loops before jumping off and landing on the ground, rolling forward into a tree trunk. "Bluh." Oliver got up and dusted himself off, close enough to the tower that he could close the rest of the distance on his own, and then wait for everyone else. {OO}
GhostofSenyx: -The tower was huge even at a distance and seemed to grow more menacing as they all got closer. Surprisingly it didnt take very long to reach its base and when Rezz did he slowed and came to a stopclose enough to the tower that he could easily run in but still back enough that he could avoid any surprises that came out. The others soon caught up with him and Kaneda and her attendant and waited on her word to enter while Rezz surveyed the walls looking for a way in other than the main entrance but not finding any just carvings and what could either be jewels or lacremas. Rezz wanted in there there was no doubt about that but he wondered if there were enough able bodies here to pull this off but at the same time he prefered being in a small unit like this, there was less risk of losing too many lives nd they could better coordinate themselves too many people would make this mission more chaotic anyways. truth be told he rather just go in alone, he had unfinished buisness with this madman and Rezz had a sneaking suspiscoin that the tower being here was in part his fault for Gora wanting some payback at what happened when they last crossed spells, but he wasnt alone and would do everything he could to make sure the other got out of there if things didnt go their way. He drew his sword and felt the all too familiar tingle of it reading his magic as it always did when someone drew it and felt that its magics were at full power before sheathing it again and tilting his head to each side cracking his neck and rolling his shoulders as he usually did when he prepaired himself for a fight. "Well guildmaster, whats the plan?"
 
Stopping a bit away from the tower, Kaneda looked around for anyone that had come from somewhere else to assist; seeing none, she assumed they were already inside and responded to Rezz.  “Any plan we make will never survive first contact.  We enter in groups, no one goes in alone.  I’m sensing nothing good from this place.”  She turned, intending to address the rest of the group, speaking only after they were all there.  “Alright, the groups will be as follows—Rezz will enter with myself and Valerius.  Oliver and Aren will enter afterwards, and you” she motioned to the Requip user “will enter with them.  There is no guarantee that everyone will stay together, keep that in mind and be careful.”  She looked at the entrance then, and even burning tin saw only…black.  This unnerved her slightly, but she took a breath to calm herself before stepping forward, with Valerius at her left and assuming Rezz was following closely behind, burning pewter just slightly to increase her strength and physical resilience, and stepped into the dark abyss, for the first time in a long time not knowing what lay ahead.
 
KatsuoOda: -Aren watched as he leaped from the bird to soon, "ey hey! not..." he stopped playing, putting his hand out to catch the guy but it was too late, he jumped. It was awefully quiet now. "TOO QUIET!" he looked down, the bird shattered, the music had stopped. "oh shit..." Aren started falling directly out fo the sky. "shiiiiit!" he pulled his guitar out in front of him and started playing a snake charm melody, as he fell from the sky a snake made of sheet music and music notes stretched it's neck out for him, and caughthim in it's mouth, before he stopped playing the snake had him coiled. It too shattered away after he stopped playing. "eh...." he opened his eyes, turned his guitar around, and checked his torso for internal bleeding or breaking, then sighed. He made it back on the ground, "remind me never to take Oliver on a joy ride." he said,shaking the silver magic from the bird out of his hair. He looked up at the tower, this was it. he had to prove he was reliable, trustworthy, and his music was beautiful to someone, this was his chance to show how useful he and his family's magic was. that's all he wanted since he joined a guild, he wanted to be useful just once, appreciated, adored by somone other than children and local people. He wanted appreciation from a peer, a fellow Magician. Or at least acknowlegement, he feels like not even his own guild master wants to acknowlege him or his music. Maybe if he had a bigger, flashier rank, or rank up like Oliver did? he looked don a little, ashamed of himself. Only way to get noticed was to do what he loved best, giving people a boost, rock on, Aren, ROCK ON! His face scrunched up and he held his head high, hopes weren't lost yet, he could do this.-
Guest_roxas123243: Aetheros nodded, and went to see what the noise was about then he heard shouting, and a few more. He gone down the steps to see what happened. He went outside, and looked around for the source of the nooise, he looks and find the man on the ground. “You okay? I can help if you need it.” He smiles, as he would. In his mind ‘Never stop smiling.’ Rang throughout his head. He bent down to see if he is alright, and offered him an hand. He looks at him and says “ Are you Oliver, or Aren?” He says with a confused look, then he shethes the revolver, as the time was not needed to be drawn, and also that the time that it might scare him into thinking if he was going to rob them or something…
Discordia has left the chat
Andikins: {OO} Getting some help off the ground, Oliver gave a nod to the man that helped him up, "Oh thanks, I'm Oliver, Aren is still up th-oh no he's over there. 'Scuse me a 'mo." Before getting into the tower, Oliver ran up to Aren, "THAT WAS AWESOME! I never got to jump from that high before. You have to let me do it again some time!" He had an assortment of leaves and twigs sticking out of his hair and outfit from his trip through the treeline. Oliver was more one to experience the view on the move rather than sit still and watch it go by, so sky diving without a bungie chord into a forest was amazing for him, this kid has some sort of deathwish. When he heard that he was going to go into the tower with Aren, he gripped his cane fervently, "Betcha we make it to the top first, hundred thousand Jewel says so!" {OO}
GhostofSenyx: "Alright, lets do this then." Rezz followed in after Kaneda through the blackness. It was an odd feeling, this darkness isnt being brought by an absence of light but more of a veil created by powerful magics. It seemed as though that if Gora was in control of this place he probably wanted everyone inside before unveiling what the interior looked like so took up position at what he thought would be as a point man incase anything came out he would befirst inline for ambush and took the precaution of cloaking his arms and legs in his arms spell and steeled himself for what might happen as the other entered through the gates. Athought of using his new poison slaying magics floated accross his mind but decided against it for now as he didnt feel the need to display such powers until absolutely nessessary, the less that knew he could use that kind of magic the better for now until he had more control over it and could blend it with his shadow slaying magics. "Alright Gora we're here, why dont you come out of hiding and face us. Or are you afraid ill kick your ass again?" Rezz knew his taunts wouldnt do much to a madman like him but with luck this darkness would be removed and the teams could act at will with whats in store for them all.-
After what seemed an eternity, Kaneda and her small team entered a large, angular room; looking around, she saw they were the only ones there so far.  As they walked, she noticed the slightest shift in the floor; obviously, the room they were in was not the only one at this level and the madman intended to split them up.  This was confirmed as she looked at the entrance.  There was no longer a field of black beyond the arched doorway, but a patch of wall the same color as all the rest.  Noting that they were now sealed in, Kaneda swore under her breath, smacking her fist against a wall; this resulted in a loud rumbling, as in her frustration she’d forgotten her strength was buffed.  “Oh, lovely…another pr-“ she was cut off by the appearance of purple lettering in the air.  The lettering read:  A passage from one place to another, Many times does it have a brother. Surrounded on all sides but one by walls, It lies at both ends of most long halls.  What is it?  “Oh, what the loving fuck…?” Kaneda muttered to herself as she turned to the other two in her group with a questioning glance, hoping one of them knew the answer to this question.
KatsuoOda: -"whuh..." he was listening to Oliver like his bird, but in a much different way than anticipated. Aren looked down at his guitar then back up to Oliver. who was the guy chasing after oliver exactly too? oh wait the tower! Aren looked back over to the tower, it was making noises, as if the mechanisims inside it were.... moving. "the guild master and the others, they musta made it we gotta catch up or the enemy's gonna split us, c'mon you two lollygaggers!" Aren zipped his guitar on his back and reach out to grab Oliver and this whoever this guy was, by the shirts and dash toward the tower, but his hopes were too late, they were split by the enemy. Kaneda and the others were probably on a whole nother level by now. "Let's go..." he stepped inside the door and waited for Aren and the other guy to do the same, looks like they'd be a team today. Aren whipped his guitar back to the front of him so he could play it, and be ready for whatever this bad guy was going to serve their way. He'd already nodded, and swallowed his fear, he was determined to protect his team mates with his amazing spells no matter the cost. "BRING IT ON YAH CRAZY OLD COON!" he said fist pumping the air.-
Guest_roxas123243: Aetheros watches him run up the tower, and shake his head. “Better go after him.” He said drawing his revolver. Runs up the steps, and hoping that he does not trip over himself. He thinks ‘Child or not, this one’s a piece of work.’ He comes to the first corridor, losing sight of him. He checks the revolvers rounds. He spins it, and puts it back in its holster. He draws the Razorfeild Magnum. The fire shines a little light in the area, and then he looks around calling for Oliver, but, he thinks that he cannot find him. He starts working his way up the tower, humming a military tune. He remembers anouther thing what he was taught. He stands still and lesions to the walls of the place, knowing that the walls are bare, the acoustics are going to be great. He stands there, with the blade drawn, lesioning to the area.


Andikins: {OO} Adhering to the groups that guild master Kaneda appointed, Oliver went in with the vagabond and Aren, not at all bothered by the moving room and sudden darkness. If this old coot was as looney as he was made out to be, he would have some fair fighting along the way in here. While in the midst of the dark, Oliver acted a little cheeky, "Sooo think it's darker in a pitch black room when you close your eyes or no?" Just to be a little cheekier, he tapped his cane to and fro, pretending to be blind, "Does he expect us to play his game in the dark? Cause that's something spoiled rich teenagers do isn't it? You know like the foolish games royal kids play?" {OO}
GhostofSenyx: -The room cleared and revealed the gray ornate walls within, and Rezz turned his head back to where the door once was discovering along with Kaneda that they were nt only sealed in but seperated from the others as well. "Wonderful, already playing games with us." Kanedas banging on the wall in frustration sounded in the air and seemed to echo although the room didnt appear to be accustic in a way to make such an echo, thats when they began to glow. The letters in the air floated spelling out some obscene childrens riddle. Rezz circled the perimeter of the room searching for something that could get them out of there not paying much mind to the riddle they had been presented with. He muttered to himself as he patted down the wals feeling the rough texture of the stonework, "we need, wheres the...blasted hell...cmon" his words were more grumbled sounds than anything but his frustration mounted quick when he finally blurted out aloud, "The door!" Rezz kept searching around not finding anything or realizing he had answered the riddle and would be a bit offgaurd when whatever happened when the answer was given would happen.-

 
At Rezz’s angry exclamation, a section of the wall on the left side of the room began to shine a bright, violent purple color.  It shone for what seemed like ages, then suddenly vanished, only appearing to fade as an afterglow in their eyes.  Once her vision cleared, Kaneda saw an opening where the light had been, and motioned for Valerius to investigate.  The large man nodded, walking briskly into the blackness of the opening, speaking only three words:  “Rune Magic: Illuminate.”, this resulting in a magic circle even brighter than the door had been, which emitted several bright orbs to light the way.  Valerius then could be seen walking down what now appeared to be a well-lit corridor, stopping at the end and turning back.  “Looks like stairs, leading up to another floor.” Hearing this, Kaneda nodded. “Well, off we go into the wild…mildly intimidating darkness.”  She said, as she walked into the corridor, Valerius at her side and again assuming Rezz would be close behind, if not forging ahead, turning at the end of the long corridor and beginning to ascend the stairs, their journey aided by the brightly glowing orbs that cheerfully frolicked along overhead, in intense contrast to the dread the tower would make anyone feel involuntarily.




Guest_roxas123243: Aetheros reequips the carbine, and ignites it so he can use it as a torch. He walks over to the group, and looks at then, with a smile, he holds it at chest level. He walks towards the end of the hall. A runic script appears and translates it’s self into an language that we all can understand. The script glows on the wall, laminating the area that he is standing in, He looks at it and reads out load, “Which creature walks on four legs in the morning, two legs in the afternoon, and three legs in the evening?” He takes a step back and holds his hand to his head. Sheathing the blazing gun blade. He looks at it with a grin, wondering what the wondering is. He smiles, “An excellent puzzle! I love them.” He grins like a twelve with a puzzle. “Hey, guys, we got an puzzle to solve, however, I am also drawing blanks. Care to help?” He waves at them to come over.

KatsuoOda: -"oh oh ey i know this, is it old man wiggy down the street? in the mornings his back hurts so her gets on all fours to skip the back pain, in the afternoon he takes his pills so the back pain is bettre so he can walk on two legs, in the evening he trains his dog to squat to pee so he walks on a leg and two hands while lifting his other leg up." well, at least that was what Aren thought it was. It was already aparent that he wasn't good with puzzles and riddles. "the hell is with this old coot and making all this stuff? why don't ya just come out and face us already so we can kick your can and send ya flying like a rocket?" Aren crossed his arms and scoffed, he hated stuff like this.-

KatsuoOda: he*

Andikins: {OO} We're gonna be here for a while if this keeps up, is what Oliver was thinking to himself. Coming from a family line of merchants and opportunists as they preferred to be called, Oliver was accustomed to dungeoneering basics and puzzles. "That's KIND of close Aren, but it's 'A Human', arms count as legs when you crawl on them." The door would of course have its runes spin about in front of itself like a slurry of liquids before flushing into the central keyhole and the door slowly opened. Along the stairway was a set of magical torches that they could all see their way through and travel upwards, "Come on guys, that's one of the eastiest and most common riddle puzzles that go into dungeons." Though the next floor would have been less of a riddle and more of a puzzle fight. {OO}

GhostofSenyx: -Rezz had just blurted out the correct answer without realizing it and only noticed when the bright light of the new door opened and dimmed again. "Did I just...? Well that was easy enough i guess." Rezz followed in after Kaneda and Valerious, he found the large man a bit odd being as quiet as he was aside from his breif spell casting to light their way to the next floor up. Wether or not the others would be there as well would be a small mysetery in itself as none of them were in contact with the others. Rezz didnt like the fact there being allies in here cut off from him when he felt alot of this was riding on his shoulders, he didnt like it when he was a rune knight and he asuredly didnt like it now. It was easy to tell he was a bit on edge and wanted nothing more than to cut loose on one of these so called champoins, but as luck would have it he would have to reach a different floor to have that oppertunity. The new floor on which they traversed was more or less the sam as the one they had just left with only a small 2 carved into the floor infront of the door they just passed through. Once the three of them were inside the room the door behind them sealed shut again and thats when the fun began. the outer edge of the floor suddenly fell away leaving a two foot gap from the walls to the floor which then began to tilt and sink down on the side they were all still standing. If the three of them didnt move soon the floor itself would topple over completely and they would fall to who knows where. "Shit, we gotta move!" Rezz scrambled to get to the opposite side of the now teetering floor hoping to ballance it out and that Kaneda and Valerious did something similar, if any of them moved out of place theyd all fall.-

 
Kaneda flared her tin, using her superheightened senses to find just the right path to get herself and Valerius across without any of the three falling.  She turned to Valerius, who nodded with a grunt.  Moving carefully, Valerius made his way to the center of the square, assuming the stance of a sumo wrestler.  Lifting his left foot, the side which faced Rezz, he lifted his foot, weight still balanced, and slammed it down with a loudly shouted “DOSUKOI!” resulting in the dust on the floor kicking up in a wave as the balance shifted violently, tipping the floor to reveal a wide ledge with a ladder, which led to a small alcove with a doorway.  Giving Rezz time to jump to the ledge and ascend said ladder, Kaneda and Valerius ran across the floor—Valerius slightly limping, he’d hit the floor harder than he’d anticipated.  Once they had all reached the alcove, another test presented itself, in the form of a rotary lock on the door; each were separated into three: one bore the likeness of a cat, another a rat and the third a rooster.  She looked over at Rezz after studying this strange lock, inquiring “Think your luck extends to these?  Looks a bit more difficult.”





KatsuoOda: -Aren blinked, "well... I knew it was something close! hot dog let's get on this horsey and ride!" Ha said racing up the stairs as Oliver solved the riddle. He stopped, hearing what heard like crashing, banging, collapsing. the ground he stood on shook, he loked up but nothing was comming down. "I think something's goin on with the others above us, We better get to movin boys." he said, using his arms as legs to make it up the stairs faster.-

Starry Night Tournament: Round 1

Round 1 Match 1: Oliver Oxford v Rezz Kain

 
Distant drums beat heavily as people poured into the compound--the tournament was starting tonight, with its first match--Oliver Oxford, Cane Requip user of Demon Howl, versus Rezz Kain, Shadow God Slayer of Ghost Smile.  The arena was clear; the match hadn't started yet, and combatants were in preparation.  Lines in the shop were out the door, nearly reaching the stairway up the mountain as more and more people flooded in, a small detachment of Rune Knights encamped by the door to discourage shoplifting.  Kaneda’s voice rang out through a magical speaker system:  “Good evening, ladies and gentlemen!  And welcome, one and all, to our first annual Starry Night Tournament.  Tonight’s match will be between Oliver Oxford of Demon Howl and Rezz Kain of Ghost Smile.  Commentating on the match is a guest, known only as Magepool.  Please make your way to the arena, as the bout will begin shortly.  Enjoy!”  followed by a feedback screech and a small thump.

Andikins: {OO} Oliver kicked his cane's bottom upwards, twirling it about his wrist without grabbing a hold of it and then onto his shoulder with a light clank sound and he grabbed a hold of it. "Guess that's our cue huh ma boy?" Oliver rolled his shoulders forward, leaping toward the guy and getting a vault with his cane to get some extra height and distance, the gold hook of his cane glowing as he went forward and over Rezz hopefully with great speed, winging the cane this way and that, leaving angular lines in the sky where he slashed, "Lattice Cut!" Now normally that spell was used in melee attacks but as Oliver Landed, he pivoted about on his feet, swinging upwards from the ground at Rezz from behind, the same glow from before shining, "Lattice blast!" This was just like the lattice cut, but it fired off the blast for a short ranged attack, and sent all the other hanging blasts flying in the direction they were pointed from before, in this case, being at Rezz. Oliver just tried to get a teaser going to see if Rezz picked up any new tricks. That and he recalled to be very careful and close to the ground to counter the sudden onset of his shadow attacking him. While he might not have looked it, Oliver was keen at remembering minute details of adversaries or riddles and things of the like. {OO

GhostofSenyx: -Oliver seemed a bit more nimble now that he wasn’t using that big shield of his, this would make this fight more fast paced than when they did some training together as he wouldn’t be spending the whole time hiding behind his defenses. With a few quick moves Oliver was behind Rezz and he was surrounded by multiple energy arc spells coming straight for him with another blast from behind where Oliver now stood, but Rezz wanted to see just how well Oliver fought when he was on the attack and was so far pleased in the early stages. Rezz waited for as long as he could until all the arcs were on him and dropped down and became a shadow on the ground as the spells collided in the space he had just occupied. Once the arcs exploded above him and kicked up a cloud of dirt and debris Rezz used that as cover to dash about in shadow form till he was just outside of arms reach of Oliver’s offhand side (opposite side of what hand is holding your cane) and sprung out of the shadow form to unleash and struck with a superman punch with his right hand, detonating the concussive blast of the spell whether he would hit him or not. though the range of the burst was short it had the force of nearly a stick of dynamite exploding which would cause moderate damage to another wizard if they were struck with the full force of the spell. If Oliver was in close enough proximity to them if he was only able to dodge or block the punch he would feel its power and be thrown off his balance leaving him open for a spinning back kick from Rezz’s left leg to his chest with the same potential power as the punch. If either of these blows landed on him Oliver would be sent back rolling on the ground several feet and possibly have the wind knocked from him if he was struck by the kick or have his vision blurred if hit by the punch. Rezz's left hand and right leg would still be coated in shadow as he steeled himself for his next move with a few beads of sweat on his brow and breathing a little harder as he was still slightly winded from his sprint to get to the match.-

KatsuoOda: -"git'cha candy, drinks, and action figures 'ere..." Aren sighed, he knew Oliver told him to watch the stand, but no matter what he did people just didn't want to come over, which made him restless. He looked up on the screen towards Oliver, and that shadow slayers big fight, "Come on short stuff take that cane and smack the back of his legs with it...” that was when Aren's eyes lit up, he had an idea. He grabbed his guitar. What if he made up a song to describe all the stuff at the stand? Would that raise enough money for demon howl and the town? "hm..." he sat on a stool with his guitar and thought. "Oh!" he strummed his guitar and started playing a fast, active joyous melody, "Leeeeet's journey to the tourney now today! hay hay! Let's journey to the tourney now today!" he paused for a moment and strummed the guitar in the same tune, "Let's see what this guild has on display! Hay hay! Let's see all the toys of Kane in her unday!" he picked up a Kaneda action figure that only had underwear on it and gave it a squeeze to make it squeak twice then put it down, "I don't know about you, but today must not be gay, cause there's a tourney here everydayyy hey hey!" he lifted his guitar like he was having fun, but the tournament people just thought the song was weird and pushed themselves further back from the stand. "Aww...” Aren made a sad face and drug his guitar back to the stool.-

Andikins: {OO} Well a deft dodge was expected, but the guy disappearing completely was another story. Though Rezz' shadow remained, Oliver looked up and around at the angle the shadow was moving in case he was-wait-he IS the shadow! Oliver turned to get ready to dodge but he didn't have enough time for it. He stabbed his cane into the ground where the shadow was, hook tip down, thinking it could be some way to stop the guy, but with his free hand, he reached out and grabbed on to his opponent's arm with all of his might, his body shuddering when the blast force hit him, but he stared down Rezz while the spin kick happened, Oliver going with and letting go when he had the chance to, getting himself thrown toward a more shaded area of the arena. He wanted to test something out, yes his foe's power came from the shadows, but Oliver saw that only happening for shadows of the immediate area and when there is light around them, how would a shadow survive in the shade without getting swallowed up? But just to be safe, Oliver lifted his cane up high and in a flash of light, split it into two ninja Sai looking tools with one of the points aimed downward as a handguard and the other upwards while the middles were still in the shape of the hooks. His feet were now big-toe and sectional toe tabi while his shins were tightly wrapped and thighs in baggy cloth pants. He had a traditional sleeveless gi on and belt, his hat and scarf shifting into that of a ninja hood and mask, leaving only his eyes, His arms were adorned in fake tattoos chronicling his adventures and those of his ancestor Hayate, "Shino Canes." {OO}

GhostofSenyx: -So close Rezz thought to himself, had he been a little faster or Oliver just a little slower the fight would've been his right there and then even the crowd thought it would be over as they suddenly became more alive. Well if they wanted a show Rezz was about to give it to them, as Oliver amazingly avoided taking the full brunt of his kick and punch attacks he retreated to a shaded part of the arena whether he did this intentionally or not put him in a bad spot as he was in a way on Rezz's turf. Now adorned in what looked like a ninja monks robes with some serious looking weapons replacing his cane he looked ready for this to be a battle of blades than one with spells, though Rezz would be delighted in making himself some weapons to match his opponents and throw down with them he had a that gleam in his eye that his old rune knight comrades knew all too well that something big and dangerous was brewing in his mind he was about to pull off something that landed him in the brig on several occasions and kept him from ever being promoted within the ranks. Since Oliver was in perfect place as his shady spot was close to the arena wall Rezz turned to face him and took in a large breath and drew in the shadow that Oliver was standing on to add to his power. "Shadow god, HOWL!" Rezz lurched forward and opened his mouth wide as he shouted that final word and the breath attack spewed forth from his mouth, it was conical shaped and expanded rapidly reaching its full width at 20 foot diameter and was comprised of small black razor edged shadow shurikens that looked as if they could rip someone to shreds. The attack was powerful and moved with tremendous speed and coupled with its size made it extremely difficult to dodge as it flew through the air o where Oliver stood and continued past him to hit into and climb the arena wall triggering the protective barrier to stop it from spilling out into the crowd nearly causing everyone on the other side of it to panic as the barrier became staticy looking but would still hold strong against the attack. Odds of escaping this were small but if Oliver was hit by a full powered howl like this he may lose the fight here and now.-

Andikins: {OO} Oliver, now in his Balance form, was ready for more maneuverability. He was much more agile and nimble with the Shino Canes than Bulwark or the Base form of his cane. People would clearly be able to tell the difference as noted by his reaction time when he took note of the massive shadow he was in being sucked up by Rezz while he got into the pose that every slayer had to use their roar or howl. Having already faced off against the Iron Dragon Slayer once and Rezz once before already, Oliver was running backwards toward the wall, and then up it. Not even affected by gravity or the odd angle he was at along the wall, Oliver made a B-line to the side to get out of the path of the Howl, continuing along the arena walls. See the Shino Canes granted Oliver balance magic, his direction of mass was always getting pointed toward his feet no matter what direction he was at. Under his perception, everything seemed to shift around him as if the wall was now the floor. It took some getting used to at first, but Oliver now had a pretty good mastery of finagling himself around on nothing but the floor, because everything as the floor to him. Even the air, which he leapt off of with the help of a magical platform created at his feet when he rocketed off the wall to get toward the side of Rezz. Oliver gathered magical energy into his two canes, charging up from the wooden ends to the very tips of the golden hooks before they ignited into magical packets, "Solution 2!" He flung both of his arms at Rezz, throwing the explosive packets which would collide with one another at his location or each other if he moved and create a volatile pocket of air that would collapse in and create a flash of light to eliminate any shadows in the immediate vicinity. Time to mess with Rezz' food supply. {OO}

GhostofSenyx: -The nimble bastard got away again, is all he can do without his shield is run from me? A slight twinge of annoyance caused one of Rezz eyebrows to twitch as he ended his howl and tracked Oliver’s run along the wall and into the air as he made his countermove and used his arms spell to conjure two short swords of shadows in his hands. The shadow that Rezz consumed had been used solely to power his howl so he didn’t get much of a recharge off of it but his instincts worked faster than his mind sometimes and without hesitating Rezz threw the two blades at the oncoming spells Oliver sent at him. The spell collided in midair between the two and with two bright flashes of light would make the two cover their eyes briefly. Long thin shadows were being cast by all the shifted dirt and debris from the arena ground and from the two combatants themselves, those sources of light wouldn’t last long and Rezz immediately began to consume all the new shadows (aside from his own or Oliver’s) The flashes faded quick but the gave Rezz enough time to eat his meal and restore his strength. No longer winded and almost back to full strength, surrounding himself in shadowy energy Rezz went into a kickboxers stance with his legs spread to shoulder width and his arms up and ready to square off against Oliver’s next move.-

E Class Training

(Oliver Oxford/Rezz Kain)
GhostofSenyx: -teping onto the arena floor Rezz walks towards the center of the ring, the soft dirt ground kicking up small puffs of dust with each step. his scarf flowed in the breeze around him and the shadow on his right arm flowed as it usually did, the sun was hanging low in the sky casting long exagerated shadows on the ground and covered about haf the arena floor and seats in shadows. Once he had reached the center of the battlefield he stood and waited while he gathered his powers for his opponent to come out so that their spar could begin.-
GhostofSenyx: (bleh, that sucked)
Andikins: ((GRAVITY RUSH 2 CONFIRMED!))
GhostofSenyx: (??)
Andikins: {OO} Oliver Oxford was resting, actually napping as noted by the comical cartoon style bubble from his nose with his snoring. Seems no one wanted to use the guild's shop facility yet, or take him out on any other adventures. The ash brown haired lad was bored out of his mind that he was dreaming about work. So when he was awoken with a summons to get into a training fight with someone named Rezz and get some practice with Bulwark, Oliver eagerly grabbed his cane and got changed, wearing some basic cloth pants and sandals, as well as a shirt with a jacket over it and an enchanted scarf that seemed to change with whatever form he was using, wrapped around his neck and head to be like a mask and a hat. His hazel eyes deadlocked on the arena as he ran out with gusto, so much that he was nearly winded when he got there, huffing and puffing, "Hey--oh jeez--just, just a second, I need-I need a breather." He supported his weight on his cane, taking a few deep breaths then taking up position on the opposite side of the arena to the guy, "Ready when you are!" {OO}
KanedaSoturi: (That's actually a good idea. I'll put Oliver in charge of shop acquisitions.)
GhostofSenyx: -Rezz tilted his head slightly with a quizical look on his face as the other wizard ran up to his position, odd that he was already winded the way he was. Most likely an overexageration to throw him off before the bout started, clever but not a very original stategy. Rezz didnt let the possible ruse throw him off so as his opponent was catching his breath he readied himself and already began prepairing his attack. Shadows began to crawl over his arms and center themselves over his clenched fists and pulsate in rythm with his breathing . Thats when he heard it "ready when you are" once those words left his opponents mouth Rezz was charging in in a flash kicking up more dust and dirt with every step. Just outside of arms reach Rezz spoke the name of his spell and attacked "Shadow gad arms" as he spoke Rezz punched out with both hands aiming one high at his opponents head and the other low at his abdomen, striking with both arms would make the concussive force of his spell have more of an impact even if hs attack was blocked or dodged throwing his opponent off ballance at the very least for Rezz to continue with a follow up attack-
Andikins: {OO} Oliver, now that he was done being winded, looked up at the guy trying to kick up dirt and dust, "Uhh huuuuuh." When the shadowy fists blasted through the dust, Oliver had to react fast, "Oh shi-!" His cane flashed and his outfit changed with him. His outfit shifted into leather mesh with movable plate on the fronts of the legs and over the feet, a set of suspenders that went up to his now sleeveless cloth top with chained mail over it and a thick gauntlet on his left hand while a shoulder length gauntlet was on his right arm. His scarf changed to that eye cover that a knight's helmet would normally have but this one covered his entire face, the cloth of the scarf still covering his head and down past his neck a little bit. The biggest, quite literally in this case, change was a massive shield that was taller than Oliver and wider than he was, but still granted a little sense of what was going on in front of the shield as per magic standards. The cane had become the handle and a part of the cane's hooked sharp end pointed out of the shield and was designed with a couple of boars, porcupine, snapping turtles and prancing lions. The shield was thick and had a distinct angle at the middle which provided some protection on either side of the angle. The shield caught the brunt of the shadow punches, sliding him backwards and the shield scraping the ground with it. {OO}
GhostofSenyx: (exactly how big is the sheild again? saw a bit of it last night but want to make sure)
Andikins: ((six feet high))
GhostofSenyx: (width?)
Andikins: ((let's say 3 feet...2.5 feet))
GhostofSenyx: (ok thanks)
Andikins: ((It's biiiiiig))
GhostofSenyx: (and heavy ill bet)
Andikins: ((oh yea
GhostofSenyx: -that sheild came out of nowhere, instead of Rezz punching out his opponent his hands impacted on the sheild instead. Although it was massive the concussive blasts from his spell still was able to push it back a little but not enough to do much else, if this sheild was going to be taking the brunt of Rezz's attacks things will get real annoying real quick. He had to find a way to make the sheild more of a hinderance than a useful tool. There was almost a wicked playfullness in Rezz's eyes as he made his next move "Arms" more shadow energy coursed around Rezz hands but instead of the spell working as it did last time this time a long shaft of shadow formed between his hands as the shadows took the form of a large scythe. Taking a half step back to get the proper distance Rezz spun around and extended his arm with the scythe in hand to strike around the sheild, letting the shaft od the scythe impact against the sheild hile the blade went behind the sheild to cut accross the chest of the wizard who weilded it.-
Andikins: {OO} Oliver, While used to a little roughing up in a fight, was slightly appalled by the dangerous tactics employed by Rezz, "A frickin' scythe?! Come on!" Oliver hefted himself up and over the shield, tilting it onto a single corner, kicking his heel on the end of it to spin the face of the shield around and catch the scythe, landing behind his shield as he was getting accustomed to moving around the shield and keeping it close with minimal movement. When he landed he braced himself for the scythe, lifting the shield up and focusing as a magical barrier showed up, catching and absorbing the force of the scythe, "Huh...didn't know it could do that." Oliver, if he could see what was going on, was that the shield had actually absorbed part of the attack and was storing it to be shot outwards, "I shall call you Tortoise." As if speaking to the shield, or moreso the memory of his great great grandfather who developed Bulwark. He shot the shadow back out into the distance, not at Rezz, because the fuse time on countering with this was short but it could counter with nearly twice the force in a blunt blast. {OO}
Guest_LillyBlossomHeart has left the chat
GhostofSenyx: -for sucha massive sheild he moved with it fairly easily, Rezz could hear his complaints of his tactics from over the clang of scythe on sheild and called out as his shadowy weapon was partially absorbed into the sheild and dismissing it completely. "Oh relax, if it had hit you it wouldve just scratched along that armor of yours. This is just a spar after all, I'm just making it interesting" Rezz watched as the sheild fired off a force blast of the attack it absorbed, wondering why his opponent didnt try aiming it at Rezz himself instead of firing off into the distance, even if it was consistent of the shadow magic he used in the attack it still wouldve given him an opening to follow up with a more effective attack. "Hehe, shadow god puppet" Rezz spoke softly as he invoked his next spell, since his opponents attention seemed more on his sheild at this moment Rezz took the oppertunity to take his shadow and use it against him. Silently rising up from the ground was an exact copy of Rezz just a few feet behind of Oliver, Rezz took to making himself a distraction by comming at Oliver again and throwing a few punches and kicks at his sheild to keep his attention on him. at that same time the shadow puppet behind him made its move as Rezz had given the mental order, crouching the shadow puppet attempted to grab Oliver around the waist from behind and lift him up over his head in a suplex type move and droping him down on the back of his head. If the puppets sneak attack worked t would more than likely send oliver into a daze and trap him under his own sheild with the puppet still holding on should it not be forced to dissapear either-
Andikins: ((wait wait o3o you can contro my shadow at will?))
GhostofSenyx: (not control it persay but turn steal it and turn it into a copy of me, it cant use magic aside from merging with other shadows. if thats a problem i couldve just taken your sheilds shadow instead)
KanedaSoturi: (There's a folk legend that says if you harm a man's shadow, you can harm his soul.)
Andikins: ((kan? ruling on that?))
GhostofSenyx: (gonna go for a smoke while you work on your post)
KanedaSoturi: (as long as there's a post limit to the ability.)
Andikins: ((well now we gotta wait for him to get back o3o
GhostofSenyx: (back)
GhostofSenyx: (i can make 10 max but the more i make each one gets weaker and need a shadow for each puppet, its all in my bio)
Andikins: ((okay typing))
Andikins: {OO} Oliver, getting hefted up, hooked his foot into the handle of the shield, either getting pulled up and over by the puppet or staying put because of the added three hundred pound weight. "Noooooo nonononononono, cut it with the shenannigans!" He got pulled up and over for the suplex, hoisting the shield up into the air with him just a little bit, sending it to the ground first as he grabbed the handle before the suplex was finished, driving the top of the shield into the ground. "Hedgehog!" A radial jut of sharp blade-like barriers went outwards in all directions, seeking to slice the shadow away while Oliver was holding strong onto the shield. {OO}
GhostofSenyx: (so did you fall back from the suplex or did you manage to stay up?)
Andikins: ((i went with it but used it to move my shield))
Andikins: ((head didn't hit the ground, shield did))
GhostofSenyx: (what about the rest of you? are you up or down?)
Andikins: ((upside down holding onto the shield XD))
Andikins: ((btw we need to finish this tonight o3o))
Andikins: ((considering this is to get a new spell))
Andikins: ((kan you keeping track of this?))
GhostofSenyx: (alright, last question are you now between me and the sheild or is the sheild still between us?)
GhostofSenyx: (ill save the log)
Andikins: ((i am between you and the shield))
GhostofSenyx: (ok typing)
GhostofSenyx: -his trick worked but not fully as expected, Oliver was able to keep himself from getting his head smacked off the ground and used another of his sheilds powers to destroy the shadow puppet which popped like a water balloon and his shadow was returned to him resuming its natural position. that move also got Rezz a bit, the sharp blades cut up his arms a little but didnt do so much damage as he was able to back away just intime from being seriously hurt. "Well thats annoying, but its over now. Arms" blood driped from his arms through his tattered sleeves but he still managed to conjure up another shadow scythe, only this time it had no edge to it and used it to try and hook Olivers legs and pull them out from under him, whether he triped him and made oliver go down Rezz would continue the motion of spining the scythe around and come down on Olivers chest but stoping at least a foot away from stabing him. Rezz would hold the Scythe over him like that until Oliver saw it and either tried to defend himself and get away or surrender the fight "You wanna keep going, or do you yeild?"-
Andikins: ((typing))
Andikins: {OO} Oliver, holding his hands up like he was surrendering, "Take it easy man, I'm just an E-rank still. Kinda hostile ta point that at me huh mate? I don't even got a main lad in the guild yet." Well that was kind of the truth, that and Oliver was ust getting used to the Bulwark's style, it was much lighter than last time, as last time he used it it was much larger and over four hundred pounds. Oliver's Great-great-grandpa was quite a giant man. "I give up okay? Now just put the pointy shadow away." {OO}
KanedaSoturi: (updating EXP. Oliver is now at 70, for 2 trainings, an E Class job and an A Class co-op. Rezz is currently at 5.)
KanedaSoturi: you'll want to write those numbers down, I will very likely forget them by morning)
GhostofSenyx: -the blade of the scythe dissolved leaving just the pole arm in Rezz's hands and he lowered it to offer as an aid for Oliver to get up with easier. "Sorry about that, guess i got a little carried away. I'm actually E class myself but I'm used to having to fight alot so i tend to be a bit more forcefull than i should."
