Phillip took careful slow steps in the Jagd. He was to be careful as to not alert any of Clan Musin members if there were any in the area. He had no idea if he would be considered in trouble if he was found--he had no intention of finding out. Going past several run-down houses, he crept behind a box. He saw the looming tower of Sabel, it's height piercing the dark gloomy fog.
"What are you doing, kupo!?" Kevin shouted as Phillip gave a gentle punch at Brittany, knocking her out.
"Sssorry, Kevin. It'sss for your own good!" Phillip gave a knock on Kevin's head, and he fell too. He took the key that was for the door that leads to the upper deck, went outside, and locked it. "There. I won't have to worry about them coming after me...ssssorry, but I can't risk it."
He continued his walk, making sure there was no one in sight, and found himself near the collesium. He approached closer...
ooc: RDJ, please play the role of Musinians... :P

a gunshot is heard from somewhere, and a bullet wound is cut onto the colleseum's wall. The trajectory was nearly missed Phillip.
???: Disarm and identify yourself, outsiders...die.
DarkValkyr - August 20, 2006 03:48 PM (GMT)
Phillp slowly unsheathed his sword and put it on the ground.
"Ssso...this is how Clan Musin greets a new member, eh?" He raised his hands in the air.
Zvane the XIII - August 20, 2006 03:56 PM (GMT)
???: You? a Musin? don't ridicule me.
A viera disables his invisibility, wearing a desert travelling cloak, a crimson one.
???: It's either me or the Sniper now aiming at your throat...and I don't find jokes funny. Tell me who you are?
Strangely, the viera seems to be equipped with short bows and a pair of katars.
DarkValkyr - August 20, 2006 03:58 PM (GMT)
Phillip shook his head. "All right, fine. I'm Phillip...I wasss planning to trade sssome thingsss..."
Zvane the XIII - August 20, 2006 04:03 PM (GMT)
???: Phillip...I don't remember such name...I...
The viera stopped talking and remained silent. And suddennly...
his lower jaw was disconnected from his head, dropping on the floor, his eyes widened in utmost pain and a broadsword suddenly pared his body in two...leaving nothing but a heap of crimson cloak...and blood absorbing into sand.
Aredjay - August 20, 2006 04:06 PM (GMT)
And the Bangaa defender responsible brought his broadsword up and onto his shoulder. He seemed to glow with a strange aura, as if the ring he was wearing granted him a repreive from death.
"...Ssstate your busssinessssss."
DarkValkyr - August 20, 2006 04:07 PM (GMT)
"I came here looking for sssomething...that I can only find here." he answered mildly.
Aredjay - August 20, 2006 04:09 PM (GMT)
The bangaa eyed Phillip suspiciously, then adjusted his Clan Musin badge.
"What exactly are you sssearching for?"
DarkValkyr - August 20, 2006 04:10 PM (GMT)
"I came here looking for sssome Nectar. That'sss all I came here to do."
Aredjay - August 20, 2006 04:13 PM (GMT)
"Hmm. Yesss, well, I think I know where you can find sssome..."
The bangaa turned around, seemed to whisper something into his badge, then motioned for Phillip to follow him.
DarkValkyr - August 20, 2006 04:15 PM (GMT)
Phillip picked up his sword, and eyed around, then hurried off to where the Bangaa went to.
Aredjay - August 20, 2006 04:19 PM (GMT)
The bangaa stopped near a pile of crates.
"Here you are...some nectar."
He then whispered into his badge again, only his tone sounded a bit different.
DarkValkyr - August 20, 2006 04:21 PM (GMT)
Phillip gave a stern look on the Bangaa before moving towards the crates. He looked at them carefully. "Thisss isss it, eh?"
Aredjay - August 20, 2006 04:24 PM (GMT)
"Heheh...yep. Take sssome..."
The bangaa could hear others approaching from all directions. Perfect.
Zvane the XIII - August 20, 2006 04:30 PM (GMT)
???: OUTSIDER MUST DIE!
Many vieras unveils themselves from invisibility, and one of them took a lunge at Phillip for frontal attack with katars. While two other was aiming thier shortbows at Phillip.
Aredjay - August 20, 2006 04:32 PM (GMT)
The bangaa wanted to savor the fight, too. He pushed the katar-wielding viera out of the way just to explode in Phillip's face. Then, the aura disappeared from his body and he rose again.
"Heheheh...Aura and Meltdown. My favorite combo ever."
DarkValkyr - August 20, 2006 04:36 PM (GMT)
"Don't you know Bangaa have heigtened hearing?" Phillip said as he gave a roll to the side, effectively avoiding the remaining katars and the meltdown, though some of it managed to thrust Phillip off-balance. However, his White Monk technique enabled him to quickly regain balance. "No laws here, right? Then it won't be a problem if I do this!" Phillip forced his fist into the ground, and earth began to crack and unleash stalagmites at the Shortbow Vieras.
Brittany and Kevin were doing their best to open the door, but Kevin seemed to design the ship too good for it's own good. "That's it, kupo!" he said. He took out his prize dagger, Save the Friend, and gave a strong thrust that shattered the door open. "Sorry, ol' pal, but we got a friend to save, kupo!" Brittany and Kevin dashed out of the ship, and began running into the region of Jagdresia.
Zvane the XIII - August 20, 2006 04:45 PM (GMT)
The two shortbowsmen was different, take was stuck by the stalacmite, but thier face show no pain...just bleed and died. No other vieras show signs of fear, either.
???: FRIGATE FLIGHT!
Another viera charged at Phillip, while two other melee vieras approaches Phillip on his sides to force him to get hit by the Frigate Flight.
Frigate Flight -> Phillip
Submission -> Phillip
Submission -> Phillip
Aredjay - August 20, 2006 04:48 PM (GMT)
The bangaa, meanwhile, shoved the viera on Phillip's right away in order to cause a Tremor to knock him off his feet.
Bangaa - 50%
Tremor > Phillip
DarkValkyr - August 20, 2006 04:52 PM (GMT)
Phillip fell on the floor as the tremor shook him. As he fell, the Viera barely whizzed past him, though Phillip got a scratch, he placed his hands on the floor, used his legs to grab the Viera who did the frigate flight and smash him onto the floor, then leapt up. "Anyone wantsss more?" he taunted.
"This has to be where he is; because I overheard him talking, kupo!"
"But where do we start looking?"
"I don't know, but be sure to keep our voices low, kupo..."
Zvane the XIII - August 20, 2006 04:57 PM (GMT)
By falling, the viera also slit the viera on the left with his katar, blood poured onto Phillip's fallen body, so do the bodies. The Viera on the right was knocked into a dense group of vieras. And suddenly, arrows came whizzing from the back of the group, piercing through the viera up fronts, who emotionlessly fall to the floor, no pain. The "Frigate Talons" was heading for Phillip, regardless of the bodies fallen on him.
Ranged Viera1: 1hitKO/Normal
Frigate Talon -> Phillip
Ranged Viera2: 1hitKO/Normal
Frigate Talon -> Phillip
Aredjay - August 20, 2006 05:01 PM (GMT)
Feeling the need for power, the bangaa simply focused, enveloping himself in an aura.
Bangaa - 50%/Auto-Regen/Auto-Life
Aura > Self
DarkValkyr - August 20, 2006 05:10 PM (GMT)
Phillip tried to shrug the bodies off him, but that was a bad idea; it left him wide open for the Frigate talons. He winced as two or three arrows went right through him, then at last letting a roar. He noticed that he was bleeding by now, and he would eventually die, seeing no end to the vieras. He got up slowly, and a Viera with katars forced him into his knee by blocking a hard swipe. He quickly overpowered him, slashed the viera, and did a tumble to avoid another whizzing arrow. He knew it was pointless, but still---
His thoughts were cut off when several explosions errupted around the center, Kevin tossed firecrackers here and there, making sure to avoid Phillip from getting hurt. He looked down from a hole in the roof, and saw Phillip, waving and telling him not to overdo it. Brittany also took this chance to double cast cure at Phillip. Kevin did a quick jump down amidst the smoke. Phillip quickly whispered to him, "Get sssome Yggdrasil Nectar from these boxes, quick!" Kevin took to a box, opened it and examined it's contents.
Zvane the XIII - August 20, 2006 05:14 PM (GMT)
???: FRIGATE FLIGHT!
Another viera dashed at Kevin, but then skid to a halt behind him, and held a katar blade behind him.
???: Submit...submit...the drug...
Another arrow was shot at Phillip.
Melee Viera: 1hitKO/normal
Hold-up -> Kevin
Ranged Viera: 1hitKO/normal
Attack -> Phillip
Aredjay - August 20, 2006 05:17 PM (GMT)
The bangaa charged at Phillip yet again, exploding in a spectacular fashion, then acting as if nothing had happened.
Bangaa - 50%
Meltdown > Phillip
Revive > Self
Zvane the XIII - August 20, 2006 05:23 PM (GMT)
Several viera was blasted to bits, blood and gore splattered on the wall.
DarkValkyr - August 20, 2006 05:26 PM (GMT)
The Viera who held up Kevin was greeted by a fire whip coming from Brittany, while Kevin carefully slid a knife to the Viera's leg. Phillip quickly moved back as far away from the Defender before he was burned by the explosion, then was hit by the arrow. Barely standing anymore, Phillip drew a symbol, ready to be sent upon the Defender amongst the confusion...
-Holy Sign -> Defender
-Flame Whip -> Viera Melee
-Knife -> Viera Melee
Zvane the XIII - August 20, 2006 05:40 PM (GMT)
A viera "tapped" the bangaa with a light physical attack, just to activate his auto-life.
Five other vieras got into action, trying to lock Phillip in place, and dragging Brittany and Kevin into the radius of the detonation.
Melee Viera x 5: 1hitKO/normal
Submission -> Phillip, Kevin, Brittany.
Aredjay - August 20, 2006 05:42 PM (GMT)
The tap activated the bangaa's Dragonheart R-Ability, giving him Auto-Life again. Then the Holy Sign removed it.
"RAWR! What'sss your problem, missster cannon fodder?!"
The bangaa exploded on him/her, then crumpled into a lifeless heap.
Bangaa - KO (finally)
Meltdown > Melee Viera, Phillip, Kevin?, Brittany?
DarkValkyr - August 20, 2006 06:03 PM (GMT)
The smoke dissapated, and Kevin got up from a heap of dead bodies. Kevin searched around what remained of the warehouse. He still clutched a flask of Nectar in his hand, and tucked it away in his pack. Kevin could not believe his eyes when he saw what was in front of him.
"Phillip...kupo..." the Bangaa lay on the floor, barely breathing. Brittany was also in the same state of shock as he is, kneeling beside him. Brittany was casting as much cures as she can, but it won't have any effect--Phillip had too many injuries. "Kevin---" Brittany spoke, tears in her eyes. "I can't do it--if he doesn't get any help soon--he'll die!" Kevin slumped to the floor. He had no idea what to do. Phillip was the closest friend Kevin had next to Brittany, but he had nothing to do to save him. He couldn't find any words to say, any thing to do, anything at all.
"Don't cry for me." A soft, weak voice came from Phillip. His eyes were barely open, and it was barely noticable he was breathing or not. "All I've given you...was only trouble and ssadnesss. Even at the end of my life--I haven't returned the favor to you two."
"What favor? You never owed us anything!" Brittany was already sobbing.
"You've done ssso much for me...but there wasss never a time when I did the same for you..."
"Phillip, kupo! That's not true!" Even now, tears rolled from Kevin's eyes. "You've already given us so much, kupo! You were there for us! It didn't matter whether you caused more trouble--you stayed with us, became like family to us, kupo! How can you say that you've never done anything!?"
"Kevin...Brittany...thank you. Now run--more might come--I'm as good as...gone..." his voice trailed off, and his eyes closed for the last time.
"Kupoooooo!!!!" Kevin reached out and gave the Bangaa a hug. He didn't want it to end like this. He didn't want it to ever happen. But it did. Everything his father told him happened--he just couldn't believe it. He wished that Phillip would just reach out and hug him back. He wished it was all a nightmare. But it wasn't; his best friend was gone. Forever.
Brittany got up, and though still crying, lifted Kevin, and got him off Phillip. She wished she could've done something for their friend, but there was no time; she heard footsteps. She dashed as quickly as she could; crying with Kevin, they headed as far as they could.
Zvane the XIII - August 20, 2006 06:17 PM (GMT)
The scene of carnage, and the meat grinder squad of vieras was obliterated. The remaining of them stab Phillip with thier katars to ensure his death...slit thier own throats and died painlessly.
Can this be a doing of Musin, creating an army of emotionless drones that live to kill and willing to die? What is this abuse of this humankind? Questions remains in the hearts of the young intruders.
A single viera undo his mask and gave out a sigh.
He shed a single tear, leaving a dark corner of Jagd Zimorous filled with stench of blood...is this the new society Musin will build all over Fantasia?
The blood stained sand was blew onto Phillip's chest, forming into an emblem of Jagdhunters. His presence was answer by the spirit that remains here.
???: I wish no lives would die so meaningless...
The viera stares into the sky...his facial figure changed into more humanlike look, the look of Byomus...and the viera slit his throat, too.
