Emerald Facets
Many Facets; One Gem
Sharks in the Bawn! 
6th-Nov-2006 04:44 pm
((OOC: This post takes place on the same night as the moot. It is primarily for dai_swims and any characters escorting him, but other characters who could be in the Bawn are welcome to join in.))

The light of Luna's full face illuminates a quintet of half-human, half-shark figures on the outer edge of the bawn of the Mother's Open Hands.

The largest of the five, a truly enormous creature with a gaping maw of row upon row of sharp teeth, growls in a guttural voice clearly unused to human speech, "This does not concern you, dirtwalkers. Give us the abomination."

((Posted with the permission of the rest of Kentaro's sentai.))

Flanked by Ikki, Shun, and Tokiko, Kentaro bars the path into the caern. "Your pardon, honored guest, but when one visits another's home, there are certain formalities that must be observed."

**Mongoose, let Saki get back with help soon! I don't know how long the four of us can keep them busy!**

Next to his Lantern, Ikki moves from one foot to another, restless as a caged tiger. He just barely resists the urge to hiss.

Padding through the trees to the side of the path in panther form as part of Matt's escort, Lakshmi is almost invisible in the night -- a sleek black shape sliding through shadows.

At her first sight of the intruders, she catches her breath. **Mother Durga, look at them... All in their war-forms, and not sounding friendly. If this comes to a fight, we may end up wishing there were more of us here. But what is this "abomination" they speak of? The vampire Andreu spoke of finding? If that is the case, we can just tell them it's been destroyed... Perhaps that will stay their wrath. But still... I don't know. I have a bad feeling about this. **

Slowly, silently, she shifts to chatro form, and positions herself where she can see -- and if needed, leap into the clearing -- but not be easily seen, keeping her head slightly lowered so that her saber teeth don't catch the light of the moon. She glances over toward Matt for his reaction, readying herself for whatever this encounter brings...

Matt's changed into a hakima - a blue robe with whales decorating it. He also has on a pair of thong sandles.

Matt walks over in front of the group of shark-people and bows to them. "Welcome to the island! I'm Matthew Daisuke Oda. I'm hoping that you might be willing to explain a few things." **This seemed like such a good idea before. Now that I'm here... Well, it's too late now!**

((OOC: The following dialogue is only discernable to Rokea.))

:Is he the one we want?: Scent-of-Blood-in-the-Water Sends to the others. :Or is he just another of the dirtwalker Changers?:

Teeth-in-the-Enemy resists the urge to snap impatiently at his slew-mate. :Perhaps we should eat them all, just to be sure.:

"Eat them!" exclaims Matt. Pulling apart the tie on his hakima, he exclaims, "You just cant go around eating people! Even if you don't like them!" Matt doesn't actually slip out of his hakima yet, but he's all set to do so at a moment's notice.

Up until now, Talib's just been wary upon arriving on the scene. In homid, he made no threatening moves upon entering the clearing. When he saw their forms, he restrained his suprise as best he could. He kept silent when Matt greeted them...

...but with Matt's exclaimation, he winces as his eyes unfocus slightly. **How do they know? Why do they care? What is going on? ...tHEy'Ll nEVeR ACcePt YoU... SHUT UP! ...buT yOU KnoW... SHUT UP! SHUT UP! SHUT UP!** He snaps his eyes shut, then opens them again.

Lakshmi blinks in surprise at Matt's outburst. ** Eat who? What's he talking about? They didn't say anything... Unless the shark people have some way of communicating that we don't know about...? **

Her eyes narrow, and she crouches, ready to pounce at a moment's notice.

Andreu frowns. **Not good...** He reaches into his pocket, checking to see if he remembered his flute.

1st-Dec-2006 01:41 pm (UTC) - First round of combat
As Itchy barrels toward the sharkmen, six small, white objects fly at him. Three of them embed themselves in him, drawing blood. ((OOC: 3 levels of Agg. Damage got through the Soak.))

Hoping to avoid a repeat of the bloodbath when the Menehune attacked -- and still feeling more than a bit guilty for her part in it -- Lakshmi leaps at Itchy, pinning him to the ground. Her claws are pulled in, but her weight and momentum bring him down nonetheless. Shifting to Crinos, she growls, "Matt's folk! His choice! Not yours!"

Meanwhile, Andreu brings his Harmony Flute to his lips and begins to play.

As the sharkman spits teeth at Itchy, Talib launches himself at it. He strikes out with his claws, but they whiz harmlessly through the air only a hairsbreadth from their target. Two of the spit teeth sink into him ((OOC: Two levels of Agg. Damage got through the Soak)).

Seeing Ikki shift, Kentaro barks, "Ikki! Yamero yo!" ["Stop it!"] Next to him, Shun grabs at the scruff of the tiger's neck. "Niisan! Kenka shinaide!" ["Ikki! Don't fight!"] he pleads. Ikki growls, but remains where he is.

Matt lets his clothing fall, but doesn't change form. He seems to be concentrating, but then a confused look comes over his face.

As Andreu plays, an enchanting peaceful melody fills the air. All of the shark-folk stand transfixed, except for the largest of them. Teeth-in-the-Enemy struggles against the bodies of his slew-mates blocking his way, but the cluster of Rokea keeps him pinned for now.

((OOC: Effects of the Harmony Flute are as follows - "... the flute emits an enchanting harmonious melody, reawakening ancent memories of peace from the time before the Severing. When an aggressive creature hears the song, the Storyteller must make a successful Rage roll, or the creature ceases its struggles. Creatures without Rage may not resist the effects of the flute. Any being listening to the sound may still defend himself if he is attacked. The power of the fute affects only those listening to the music. Once the music stops, anything goes..." (W:tA Rev, P. 301)

Anyone wishing to continue fighting must make a Rage roll, Difficulty 6 [and send me the results]. For those who succeed on the Rage roll, deadline for next combat round is midnight Eastern Standard Time, Monday December 4.))

"Wait! I want to go with you!" exclaims Matt. "All I ask is that you promise you will not eat me."

Teeth struggles against the imprisoning bodies of his slew-mates. "I want to eat you, abomination," he snarls. "You are safe for now, but beware the next time you enter my world."

Matt looks taken aback at this. **Well that's a conversation killer...**
4th-Dec-2006 12:07 am (UTC) - Re: First round of combat
** Oh, I do not understand these people at all... Why do they hate him? He said earlier that he'd never even met one of his own kind before -- what could he possibly have done to offend them? **

(( The following depends on what other people, especially Itchy, are doing... ))

If Itchy seems to have gotten himself under control, and no one else is immediately attacking anyone either, Lakshmi shifts further, to Sokto (near-human) form, for clearer speaking, and lets Itchy up as her curiosity gets the better of her caution. "Why do you call him that, honoured guest?" she asks the Rokea. Her tone is polite, as she tries to follow hakken_sempai's mode of addressing them in hopes of defusing the situation. "He is one of your own people, is he not? What has he done to offend you?"

On the other hand, if Itchy is still in a near-frenzy state, she will stay Crinos and focus on trying to keep him from attacking.
