January 24th 2014 | Friday | AfternoonEdit
The expedition crew has arrived to the lava river in the Fuji Dragon Shrine.
"I'm surprised that the mountain led us to an underground lava river," says the sheriff.
"Yeah you are right," says the other officer. "How do we get across?"
Zerxes walks up. "Wish I ahd those teleportation crystals... Hmm.." Zerxes begins using his surveying skills, and scouts out the area.
Arris walks up still covering his ears. "AHHHH I need to focus" Arris keeps slowly walking.
The Sheriff and the officers jump to the platform.
"What are you guys waiting on?!" yells Hart as his body starts to give out from the weight added to the platform. "Jump!"
Zerxes follows, and jumps across.
Arris does a Super jump across the Lava. He lands on a far Platform.
Hart takes away his Key Sword and the plat form begins to float across the lava river. As it floats across the lava river, he sees someone by the Dragon Shrine.
"Guys we got trouble," says Hart in worry. "And this trouble is no joke."
The creature jumps on the lava platform and it is easy to see in his eyes that he wants a fight.
Zerxes draws his bow and 5 arrows. He then begins to fire at the creature.
Arris jumps over to the creature and uppercuts it. "Hmm this might be easier than I thought," he says.
The creature easily puts up his shield and deflects the five arrows with his shield. When Arris tries to uppercut, the creature also easily blocks with the shield. This leaves Arris wide open and the creature slashes Arris's chest. The slash leaves a burning effect making the cut steam.
Hart stands back figuring out what to do.
Zerxes uses a Meteor Shot.
"AHHHH" Arris screams as he gets Slashed in the chest. Arris Super speeds around the creature and Punches it in the back.
The creature glows read and is now invulnerable to damage. It curls up his body as he if were about to unleash a strong attack.
Zerxes fires 3 Charge Shots.
Arris looks at the Creature with a shocked Expression on his face. "Uhh guys... WE GOTTA GO!" Arris screams to the crew.
The creatures lets a big wave of heat, knocking Arris back to the edge of the platform. Hart sees the opening and dashes slashing the creature on his back making him stumble forward, while only one arrow from the three charge shots stun him.
Zerxes simply fires 5 normal shots.
Arris nearly falls off the Platform but catches himself at the last second. Arris charges at the Creature saying "BRING IT ON!!!!!". Arris punches the creature Rapidly and dodges the Arrows coming at the creature.
The rapid fire of the arrow plus the rapid fire of punches creates an insane fury of damage on the creature. Getting hit from every angle.
The creature stumbles back and appears to be so injured he can't fight anymore.
The officers raise their gun preparing to fire. No, we might mess things up," said the Sheriff. "Let them kill the creature."
Hart slashes upwards on the creature knocking him up in the air, giving Zerxes a chance for an aerial shot.
Zerxes uses Aerial Shot with a long arrow.
The long arrow goes through the creatures body staying in there as the arrow sticks in the ground with the creature's half dead body on it. This leaves Arris a chance to do the finishing smashing blow.
Arris comes down with a Super punch to the Creature.
"That was the strongest opponent we have ever faced on this journey," says Hart. "I'm sure they'll be more."
"Yeah, he was even stronger than that ogre..." Zerxes says, as he tilts his head down a bit in shame.
"Ugh, that ogre was a Piece of cake! Why was he so hard?!" Arris exclaims. "Well anyway, I don't think we've introduced ourselves. I'm Arris Taylor"
"Yeah you're right," says Hart thinking. "I'm Hart Twilight and if you're wondering what kind of weapon I am wielding, I am wielding something called a Key Sword."
"I'm Zerxes, a ranger. I use to live in the forest near Newb York. In a village, I have to visit them sometime.. I enjoy reading, relaxing, and archery." Zerxes says as he scouts the area.
"Hmm I need to find some other clothes because I am sick of wearing this Armor" Arris says to everyone.
"Yeah I the construction worker said you were looking for clothes," said the sheriff. "I'll give you some clothes when the mission is over. You need to stay in that armor because we don't know when the enemy will attack."
Everyone finally reaches the end of the lava river. Hart jumps off the platform.
Zerxes jumps off, drawing his bow for safety.
Arris jumps off with Part of his cape landing in the lava. "CRAP!" Arris yells.
Arris's cape disintegrates. Everyone arrives on this long field of lava earth. "Woah," Hart says in amazement.
"So... This... Totally is NOT Creepy.." Zerxes says.
"More Lava? Seriously?! I forgot why we're even here!" Arris yells.
"We're here to find the source of the Ogres," says Hart. Hart looks further and sees a bag in the distance. "Imma go get that bag!"
"We have to stop 'em... Perhaps, I can continue my conquest after this. To be the best damned archer there is..." Zerxes says.
"Oh so you think we'll find THE OGRE KING!" Arris says to Hart.
"Yeah we don't know who the leaders of the Ogres are," says Hart while running to the bag. "It might even be someone who isn't an Ogre, I don't know." Hart grabs the bag and opens it.
"Since you helped me when I first needed it Zerxes, lets split it," says Hart while giving him half of the gold coins.
"We've been on this journey for like 3 days," says one of the officers. "We should eat."
"Thank you, Hart. That means a lot.." Zerxes says as he slowly puts the money away, and smiles. "Sure, I can go for some grub." Zerxes says excited.
"Aww no monet for me?" Arris says in Dismay. "Yeah I need something to eat"
"Okay lets cook that Ogre slime!" yells Hart. "Everyone give me their slime."
Zerxes gives you the slime, "What the hell are we gonna eat.. Their boogers?!" Zerxes says.
Arris gives Hart the slime, "Yeah Zerxes is right..what the hell are we gonna eat?" Arris says.
"We're gonna eat their slime," says Hart with a smile. "Nothing else to eat." Hart takes the jars from the officers. "Hey anyone know how to build a skillet from a lava rock?"
"I was a blacksmith back then... If you have a hammer, I can do it. It'd be rigid, but I can do it." Zerxes replies.
"I miss my cape" Arris says out of no where.
"Here use my Key Sword as a hammer," says Hart. "Don't worry it won't break." Hart throws Zerxes his Key Sword.
Zerxes catches, he poors water from his backpack on the rock to cool it. He begins to hammer at it, after a few minutes, its done. Its a small cracked, and rigid skillet.
Arris Grabs the skillet "Hmm" Arris Rubs his hand Across the Skillet to make it smoother."There yah go" Arris hands the Smoothed out Skillet to Hart.
Thanks guys. Hart pours all the ogre slime into the skillet and begins to cook it above a small pond of Lava. The slime begins to sizzle and turn solid like eggs. It eventually turns into thick chunks like meat. "Done!" yelled Hart happily. "I just need to add seasoning!" Hart uses plants from everyone's clothes and cleans it with water from Zerxes's backpack. He then adds it to the Ogre slime.
Hart serves everyone out in their jar. "Hope it's good," says Hart with a smile.
"Thanks" Zerxes says as he eats the slime, he stops.. His face is in disguise, then he smiles. "Heh, g-good" Zerxes says as he chugs the slime down and sits down.. "Phew..." He then begins to read an archery book.
"Well I'm kind of a Picky eater so.. yeah" Arris eats the slime "....MMMM THIS STUFF TASTES GOOD!" Arris yells he slups the slime down he then Sits down And looks at his burned cape in the Lava "I'll miss you"
Hart eats the slime. "Woah I cook better than I thought," he says in surprise.
"Yeah you can cook," says the officers with their mouths full.
When Zerxes tries to read the archery book, it is in so much detail he cannot comprehend. The techniques must be beyond his level.
"Urgh..." Zerxes says as he puts his book away and stands. "Best get moving, get past this lake of lava.." Zerxes says.
"So when do you think we'll pass to the other side?" Arris asks everyone.
"You're hallucinating Zerxes, there is no lake of lava," says Hart in a confused look. "You are too Arris. Snap out of it! Must be that Ogre slime."
Zerxes shakes his head, "oh!" Zerxes says as he looks around. He then says "Lets go then".
Arris looks confused "what the?" Arris says in confusion "Anyway, lets get a move on"
Hart runs into the distant field, and the officers follow along with the Sheriff. "C'mon guys lets go!"
Zerxes slowly follows, looking around.
Arris follows "Ugh all this walking is getting Tedious" Arris says.
Everyone finally reached to a stop. At the stop is the Ogre General.
"Ah so you have arrived," says the Ogre General. "How about we begin."
The general sends his four Hell Hounds to attack first.
"Guys we have incoming trouble!" exclaims Hart as he takes his Key Sword from Zerxes.
Zerxes draws his bow and arrows. He fires 4 meteor shots, one at each hound.
Arris charges towards one of the Hell Hounds screaming "BRING IT ON!!!!!!!"
The hounds all get hit by the 4 meteor shots but since they are hell hounds the fire has no effect on them. The hound Arris charges to opens her mouth wide to eat Arris alive, showing her sharp fangs.
And one hound charges to Zerxes, another charges to Hart, and the last charges to the officers.
The hound tries to headbutt Zerxes, the hounds against Hart tries to tail whip him. And the one against the officers roar to knock them over.
Zerxes fires a charged shot straight into the mouth of the hound charging him, he then jabs it in the eye with the blades on his bow.
Arris jumps over the Hell hound, grabs her tail and throws her far away.
The shot Zerxes shoots is successful and the Hell Hound begins to choke but when Zerxes tries to jab him in the eye the hell hound closes his eye lids and his thick fur successfully blocks the blades of his bow. Since the Hell Hound's eyes are closed it's another chance for Zerxes to attack.
The Hell Hound is thrown but flips in mid air and comes straight down to land on Arris and crush him.
Hart jumps over the tail whip and lands on the tail and begins to run on it stabbing his Key Sword into the Hell Hound's back.
The officers shoot at the Hell Hound but it's thick fur just absorb the bullets and it releases a roar knocking all of them down.
Zerxes fires 2 charged shots with long arrows into the head.
Arris gives the dog a Super Punch.
The Hound begins to fall over on the floor as it slowly begins to die.
"How dare you anger me," yells the Ogre General. He picks up a lava rock and throws it in the sky as it comes down so fast it catches on fire like a meteor. It begins coming down on Zerxes.
Due to the weight, size, and fur of the hound the punch does minor damage and Arris is crushed under the hound. The hound rolls over leaving Arris in a crater, and as the hound is rolling over it leaves an opening for Arris.
When Hart stabs his Key Sword into the hound the hound falls to the ground but then grabs Hart, to where he can't dodge and Hart is thrown.
"Don't open fire," says the Sheriff after getting up from being roared on. "I got this."
Zerxes runs from the way, he attempts to re-group with the officers.
Arris Jumps up into the air and comes back down with a Punch to the hell hound.
The Sheriff pressed his police badge which was star shaped, and his suit began to transform. It turns out the reason the Sheriff wasn't using guns was because he is a Brawler.
Arris got the Hell Hound in the stomach when he came down with a punch. The Hell Hound threw up some lava at Arris while Arris was still in his punch position.
Hart landed on his feet and begins to charge back on the hound as the hound charges back at him.
"Hey! You asshole! You almost killed me with that rock!" Zerxes says furiously and in raging stress.
Arris dodges the Lava. Arris Turns around in shock to see that the Sherrif is a Brawler. Arris runs and kicks the Hell hound then runs over to the Sherrif "SHERRIF!?!? You're a Brawler!??!" Arris said in Astonishment.
The ogre general ignores Zerxes's rude anger.
Arris knocks out the hound with his kick and the hound is hit by her own throw up.
"Yes and I forgot to introduce myself," says the Sheriff. "I am Brandon Griffin the strongest Sheriff to ever live in Erol!" Brandon Griffin dashes towards the hound and opens her mouth open. "Officers fire!" he exclaims. "Give her something to eat!"
The officers fire and the hound's insides get all messed up and it is defeated.
Hart collides with the hound and his high strength knocks it back. He then uses his Key Sword to make the finishing blow defeating the hound.
"Ah you humans are impressive," says the Ogre General smiling. "Time for the real fight." He gets up out of his chair and walks to the battlefield.
Zerxes stands there, he looks brave and is not scared. He pulls his bow. "Lets go then..." Zerxes says grimly as he walks foward and stops near his party.
"Yeah Bring it on..Mother fucker." Arris says as he stands near Zerxes.
"This guy's no joke," says Hart worried.
The Ogre stomps his foot and uses Shockwave. Hart jumps over the shockwave.
Zerxes does the same, in mid air he fires a charged shot at the eyes of the ogre general.
Arris jumps too, he Jumps high and lands on the ogre's head.
The Ogre swipes his hand at Hart and Zerxes while they are in the air. Hart lands on the Ogre's arm and begins to run up his arm to his head.
The Ogre General eats Zerxes's arrows and takes no damage only to tilt his face upwards to spit it back out with the same damage and speed at Arris while Arris is on his head.
Zerxes is hit, he hits a rock and stands. He begins to fire once more. Firing 5 charged shots.
Arris dodges the Arrows and punches the Ogre's skull.
The arrows move so fast Arris barely dodges and it cuts the front of his body. The hit on the Ogre's skull is successful and the Ogre General takes damage. The Ogre grabs Arris by his body and puts Arris in front of him to block the five charged shots.
Hart runs up his arm and hits the Ogre in his face to distract him, making the charged shots miss Arris and hit the Ogre. Arris is dropped on the ground safely.
"Call me when you need my help," says Brandon.
"Hey, Brandon! I'll create an opening!" Zerxes yells for Brandon's aid as he continuously fire arrows in the face of the ogre to distract it.
Arris jumps up again and tries to meet the Ogre with an Uppercut.
"Time to boost!" yells Brandon happily. Brandon warps through time and appears in front of the Ogre's face, charging his fist with gold energy to punch the Ogre General knocking the Ogre back. This causes Arris to miss completely.
"Oops looks like I took your spotlight," says Brandon. "I'll give you it back since I pity you." Brandon grabs Arris and launches him at the grounded Ogre General.
Hart uses the momentum of his Key Sword to launch himself up into the air.
Zerxes fires Meteor Shots, 3, as he stands back, being a ranged fighter.
"SHADDUP GOLD BOOSTER!" Arris screams as he is launched towards the ogre. Arris puts his fists infront of him and strikes right into the Ogre's chin.
The Ogre is knocked in the chin is now angry and hit by the meteor shots. "You dare disrespect the Ogre general!" The Ogre spins on his back sending lava rocks shooting through the air, and sending Arris flying into the sky.
Zerxes's mana is almost completely gone.
Hart begins to use his agileness to maneuver through the falling lava rocks.
Zerxes then fires normal arrows, dodging the rocks.
"Hmm I get in the sky alot lately.." Arris says as he's launched into he sky. Arris falls back down to the Ogre's Eye.
The Ogre deflects all the arrows, making Zerxes realize he needs to use more skill than that if he's going to defeat the Ogre.
As Arris comes crashing down the Ogre flicks his finger and doesn't even touch Arris sending a gust of power through the air from a simple flick sending him back to Zerxes.
Zerxes rolls from danger and fires a meteor shot at the Ogre's eyes.
Arris lies on the ground puzzled.."How do I take this guy down?"
Zerxes attempts to fires a meteor shot but doesn't have enough many to do it.
The Sheriff hears Arris's call and dashes over him. "You can't take the guy down, only teamwork can," he says.
Zerxes starts to sharpen the tips of his arrows on the rocky floor, and fires them.
Arris starts think about tatics that could make his attacks stronger.
"So you ignore everything I just said," says Brandon with a disappointed face.
Zerxes then begins to get closer, he continues to fire as he straves around.
"No I'm not my attacks aren't doing anything to help them so I might as well think of a way to make my attacks stronger." Arris says to Brandon.
The ogre begins to bleed from the sharp arrows and starts to lose strength as he falls on one knee.
"Time to boost!" yells Brandon as he dashes towards the Ogre general hitting him with multiple combos all over his body. The Ogre now begins to fall face first on the ground. "Someone attack and make it good!"
Zerxes runs in and jumps, he smashes his bow in which has spikes on it into the center of the ogre's skull.
"Hmmmm" Arris says as darts over to the ogre's face and unleashes dozens of combos.
From all the attacks to the head, the Ogre General is defeated from extreme skull injury.
"Huh?!" Hart says in surprise as the ground below everyone begins to rise into the air.
"Hmph?" Zerxes says as he stands with his bow and arrows drawn as he looks down over the edge.
"Woah" Arris said as the ground rises "HEY WE'RE FLYING!"
Hart jumps off the surface and runs down it as it upwards jumping to the ground. He rolls and stabs his Key Sword into it, causing the ground to stop rising. "I locked the ground with my Key Sword, and I have to keep my Key Sword in the ground to keep it locked since this area of the ground is rising at a constant rate," says Hart with a serious face. "You guys are gonna have to fight this battle without me, good luck," Hart says with a charming smile.
"So you have made it this far heroes!" yells a lady as she holds a weapon tilted back in her left hand. "I am the Queen of the Ogres, Kaiju!"
January 25th 2014 | Saturday | MorningEdit
"So why are the ogres attacking us?" asks Brandon.
"So foolish," Kaiju says. "Your race has enslaved us ogres, and now it's time for us to pay you back for what your race has done."
"Guys hold her off while I go investigate information," says Brandon as he dashes off around the area.
"Now it's just you and me boys," she says as she underhand swings her weapon upwards sending a pulse of pure Mana at Arris and Zerxes.
"I am a ranger, an Archer. I can assure you I protect your kind, I free'd a few in my times as well." Zerxes says, in a persuasive tone.
"I am a Brawler. We can all protect your kind." Arris said in a nice manner.
Both Zerxes and Arris gets knocked back onto their butts where they land at the edge of the surface. Kaiju walks towards the two pointing her weapon towards them. "How will one person protect my kind?" she asks to Zerxes. "Who is all?" she asks to Arris.
"The archers, we all attempt to help your kind and other animals. We care for the land, and its inhabinants." Zerxes says standing up.
"The brawlers can help too we are very much skilled in hand to hand combat and we have powers too" Arris says as he stands up.
"The brawlers don't care about the Ogres though, so that would be useless," says Kaiju in a serious face. "I thank you for your attempt to help though. So I will give you a reward."
"As for you, archer," says Kaiju as she looks down at him. "We are on good terms and for freeing my Ogres, I will give you the city of Ogretree, and make you the Lord of it. You will now be the Lord of Ogretree, or do you decline my offer?"
"I will accept, but on what terms exactly?" Zerxes says, honorably.
"Uhh thank you..and you're welcome" Arris says.
"Well you'll be the Lord of the city and basically command it and create all the laws," says Kaiju. "Since you are the Lord, the Ogres will listen to you and be under your protection. And now you'll be able to consider yourself complete allies with the Ogres. You too, brawler."
Arris's hearing starts acting up again and he starts getting extreme headaches.
'Thank you, m'lady." Zerxes says bowing.
"AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH" Arris screams as he clenches his ears and falls down.
"What is wrong?!" Kaiju asks in confusion and worry.
"AHHHHHHHHH MY EARS! THEY CAN HEAR EVERYTHING!!!" Arris screams.
Kaiju scratches her thumb making herself bleed and rubs the blood all over her hands. She then places her hands on Arris leaving her handprint on his body, and now inserts Mana into the handprint. "This is an alchemy seal that will make you be able to control your superhearing at will," says Kaiju.
Arris's hearing goes away and he can now activate it and control it at will to any extent he wants.
"You may leave now," says Kaiju.
Brandon flies back up and sees everyone. "I investigated and she is definitely the reason for all the Ogre attacks," Brandon says. "What happen to the fighting?"
"I shall take my leaving" Zerxes says as he stands on the ledge, awaiting the descend of the platform.
"There was no fighting...We negotiated," Arris says staring.
"Okay Hart, you can unlock the ground now," says Brandon.
Hart unlocks the ground and the platform descends.
"Boys, it was nice working with you," says Brandon as a tear comes from his goggles. "I know it must have been amazing working with me too, the Best Sheriff in Erol!," he yells as he does an egoistic cocky pose.
"Anyway this is where we part ways," Brandon says in a serious manner. "Ah I forgot something! The construction workers said a man with a big "S" on his chest needed some regular clothes. I only know one man with that on his chest, so it must be you. For that, my officers made you some regular clothes and put it in a box along with shades and brown hair dye." Brandon gives Arris the box.
"Now goodbye, it was amazing meeting you three," says Brandon. Brandon presses his star and begins talking through the speakers in Newb York. "Attention citizens, the Ogres are now our allies and returning to their city." All the officers including Brandon disappear using their teleportation crystals.
Kaiju descends into the lava and now Hart, Arris, and Zerxes are there by themselves.
"We should leave, ogre's wont bother us anymore. I should head to Naturia, tell about my journey." Zerxes says as he walks.
"Umm my hoodie has my Crystonian Army symbol on it..."Arris says as he looks at his hoodie.
In the distance, a tower is seen hidden by many clouds. Mountains are also seen.
Zerxes continues walking, he notices the sight, but has yet to say something.
Arris stands in silence.
Hart is suddenly gone.
Zerxes realizes he left his two horses at the hospital.
"I should have brung one of my horses, perhaps..." Zerxes says to himself.
"Hmm what happened to Hart?" Arris says.
Two ponds of swirling lava appear in the ground, swirling around glowing with energy. In one of the ponds, Newb York is seen. In the other pond, a swirl is seen, probably suggesting it is a portal to a random location.
Zerxes stops. "These seem to be portals, looks like we have a choice." Zerxes says. "No matter which you chose, follow your mind.." Zerxes says as he slowly steps into the one that seems to be random.
Arris steps into the same one silently.
As Arris and Zerxes step through the portal they both land in two different locations.
