Rye Simmons
06:24PM
“Insanity.” Rye answers Abygail, thoroughly deadpan. She looks at the Mop Haired Boy, sensing no immediate threat, and the blonde chooses to wait.
ThE MoP haiREd BoY
06:24PM
*behind him floats an elephant, that morphs into a tree and then into a dog and then into a tornado that shifts into a bowl of Jello. This morphing mass is joined by others, that lift and float and bounce and stretch, turning the field of infinite sameness into a screen of insanities behind his back.*
The mop haired boy raises his head, turning his blue eye on Rye.
“Exactly”
Magnus Burnsides
06:25PM
Magnus listens to the notes as he strides closer to the boy, trying to suss out of the melody is familiar to him. There’s another creature that sings, one he knows very well, but it’s unlikely it and this boy are within the same species. “Who are you?” he asks the boy, stopping roughly four feet from him, eyes drawn to the cavalcade of crazies behind him.
Abygail
06:25PM
*Looks at Rye my cat ears perking up* really
Echo Wilder
06:25PM
Owo

“You all came…”
Magnus Burnsides
06:25PM
(*if, not of lol)
ThE MoP haiREd BoY
06:25PM
“You really came.”
“The old tales are true.”
Rye Simmons
06:25PM
Oh, there was something vaguely familiar about this. She grimaces.
Abygail
06:25PM
yes we did now tell us why were here
Professor Chronotis
06:25PM
It had been some time since Chronotis found herself stranded on this strange, somewhat infuriating planet, with a ship that did not work, surrounded by people that offered her nothing but sass and a shocking amount of ignorance concerning their surroundings. But, if there was one thing she had to begrudgingly agree on, it was that if the answers weren’t given, they had to be taken. As such, when she heard the loud sounds in her office, she opened her doors, looked at the portals… and just grabbed a coat. “Fine.”
ThE MoP haiREd BoY
06:26PM
“You chose to come here, because you wanted something. Everyone wants something…”
“What do YoU want?”
Abygail
06:26PM
*Looks at Rye* who are you
ThE MoP haiREd BoY
06:26PM
?
?
Abygail
06:26PM
i want adventure
Rye Simmons
06:27PM
“Your mom.” She answers flatly.
ThE MoP haiREd BoY
06:27PM
*the mop haired boy turns his green eye on Abygail*
“YES!”
“Both of you”
Magnus Burnsides
06:27PM
“Ah, it… it wouldn’t be too much to fill a guy in, would it?” Magnus chuckles with a sheepish smile. Though at the question, he scratches his chin. “… I’d like to find my friends and get home, really.”
Abygail
06:27PM
*Looks at the boy* what
ThE MoP haiREd BoY
06:27PM
*The child, his features elfen, his eyes mad, his ears twitching with magic, pulls a long silver key from his pocket.*
Professor Chronotis
06:28PM
Portals made her stomach TURN. Such sloppy treatment of space and time, it was barbaric, but at least the destination was… pleasant enough. Adjusting her coat a little, Chronotis cleared her throat. “I am in search of knowledge. Mostly about where I am.” If this odd boy had the answers, or an opportunity to find them, she’d take either.
??? ??????g
06:28PM
“Oh, this is going to end welllllllllll.” Ash had stepped through the portal, driven by a nice little niggling pang of curiosity and mild discomfort. A big ol’ portal and everyone just decided to step right on through, oh this was surely going to end in some kind of disaster. Never the less, the bounty hunter was here; cautiously eyeing the strange, strange, strange boy.
Abygail
06:28PM
Watch it buddy *Watches the boy*
ThE MoP haiREd BoY
06:28PM
“This is the interpolation mechanism”
Rye Simmons
06:28PM
“Just as clueless as you are, dude.” Rye says to Magnus, shrugging in the fighter’s direction. “I could go for some bagels myself…” She’s eternally hungry.
Magnus Burnsides
06:28PM
“Though adventure wouldn’t be a bad thing either. Always up for a good adventure!” Magnus grins, trying to stay the positive one here.
Abygail
06:28PM
Rye your not my mom!
ThE MoP haiREd BoY
06:29PM
The child holds the key aloft, and a purple silver light glows from it. Rainbows begin to form, double, triple, quadruple splays of multifaceted light.
A choir sings.
Rye Simmons
06:29PM
“No SHIT! What tipped you off?” The girl laughs.
Abygail
06:30PM
*rolls my eyes and steps towards the mop haired but* i want an adventure now
Magnus Burnsides
06:30PM
Magnus watches, eyes wide with wonder. It’s a pretty sight to behold.
Abygail
06:30PM
boy*\
Professor Chronotis
06:30PM
“Interpolation mechanism? It manages interjected remarks? Or it inserts things of a different nature into things?”
ThE MoP haiREd BoY
06:30PM
Angels begin to descend from the heavens to float about the held aloft key.
Abygail
06:30PM
*Watches in awe*
ThE MoP haiREd BoY
06:30PM
The skies pour velvet roses down upon the massed congregation.
L?x, the Grey.
06:31PM
“I’d be worried if she was, honestly.” He jabs, suddenly appearing beside Rye, a bag of sour candies in hand. A lot of them already in hand, eating them heavily.
Magnus Burnsides
06:31PM
Magnus catches a velvet rose and decides to smell one.
ThE MoP haiREd BoY
06:31PM
“And I mean to use it.”
“This can bring us anywhere, and nowhere. It can gain us anything, or it can bring us to our greatest horrors.”
Abygail
06:31PM
*picks up a rose and smells its wonderful fragrance* such bueaty to behold
ThE MoP haiREd BoY
06:31PM
“Who is with me?”
Abygail
06:32PM
* puts the rose in my hair* me
Magnus Burnsides
06:32PM
“Do we, uh… get a say in where we go? Or is it just random?” Magnus asks, tucking the rose into his belt next to his goldfish. “I’d definitely prefer the not greatest horrors thing.”
??? ??????g
06:32PM
Maybe everyone had been drugged. That was Ash’s only explanation, it even made the bounty hunter inspect his hands for no more than a second before he just tucked them within the confines of his jacket pockets. “Certainly a cheerful sales pitch.” He mumbled, his eyes just jumping from key to boy, back and forth. back and forth.
Rye Simmons
06:33PM
“Ah?” Rye looks to Lux. “Yeah, well, I’m cursed with terminal sarcasm.” She tries to focus on the task at hand. “Yeah, do the thing!” She calls to the Mop Haired Boy.
Professor Chronotis
06:33PM
“…Are you saying it is some kind of… teleportation device?” Maybe that is what created those sloppy portals.
ThE MoP haiREd BoY
06:33PM
“Each who wishes to turn the key will get a turn. But not before me.” And with that the impish fae slams the key into nothingness, bare air, and a door opens into a mass of static white. Without waiting, he leaps through.
“Folloowww meeeeeee”
Magnus Burnsides
06:34PM
Magnus hesitates for only a few seconds, but like always, rushes in.
Rye Simmons
06:34PM
Rye doesn’t hesitate, following along without any snarky commentary for the time being.
Abygail
06:35PM
*follows the boy*
??? ??????g
06:35PM
With a small roll of his shoulders, Ash followed the strange boy. Still uncomfortable with the whole thing.
Professor Chronotis
06:35PM
This definitely seemed to be a maddening tool for abusing the fabric of reality. Just that door opening made Chronotis slightly nauseous. “Oh dear…” But, she needed answers, and sometimes that necessitated expedition. It had just been a while since she’d done field studies. “Nothing ventured, nothing gained.” Rather than jump, she CALMLY stepped through, either finding ground, or falling gracefully.
L?x, the Grey.
06:36PM
He grins at Rye’s response, taking handful of candies into his mouth, although rising an eyebrow at her action of following. “First sign of danger, and I’m outta here.” He follows the others, purposely lagging slightly behind of the group.
ThE MoP haiREd BoY
06:36PM
Stepping through the portal you immediately find yourselves to be drowning…..
Abygail
06:36PM
*Smiles with happiness* what an adventure wait for us beyond this point
*starts to panic but quickly swims to the surface gasping for air*
ThE MoP haiREd BoY
06:37PM
There is no air, only water, water, everywhere, a sickly reddish water that floats around you, thousands of meters high and low and in every direction.
There is no surface.
Aggi
06:37PM
.
ThE MoP haiREd BoY
06:38PM
But those who do finally succumb, will find that the air can be breathed.
Rye Simmons
06:38PM
“Cool, more adventure for me, dude.” She calls over her shoulder to Lux–then apparently is drowning! She flails about and attempts to find air. Not the most graceful swimmer–in fact, calling it swimming is generous. It’s a completely panicked motion.
ThE MoP haiREd BoY
06:38PM
You are underwater but you can breathe, there is little light, but you can see.
(waiting for the others to acclimate*
*the mop haired boy floats on his back like a lazy fish*
Abygail
06:39PM
*swims around trying to calm myself down and i panic more as i look around for the light*
??? ??????g
06:39PM
Glorious! The sensation of drowning…well, actually drowning…bugger. The bounty hunter flailed for just a moment, a slight onset of panic before…he let out a breath? Well, that was certainly strange.
Magnus Burnsides
06:39PM
Magnus is dragged down a little further due to the weight of his axe and armor, struggling to hold breath inside him. Steven, his goldfish, bangs on the walls of his tiny water filled orb. Eventually he can’t hold it any longer and coughs, yet air fills his lungs instead. Adrenaline coursing through him, he works on adjusting to breathing this strange air.
L?x, the Grey.
06:39PM
He simply didn’t react much to the water, not requiring air to survive. Although, the first movement he does is kick with his powerful legs thrust himself forwards towards Rye… he truly didn’t understand why. His stupid foolish body moved on their own, his arm moving to wrap around her waist.
Professor Chronotis
06:40PM
Thankfully, the Professor was an apt swimmer. Whatever fluid she was in, she didn’t quite know if it was water. Opening her mouth, she swallowed some, daring to taste. It seemed well oxygenated, maybe? No need to hold her breath, then. A shame, though; Chronotis quite liked her hair, and now it was in danger of being ruined.
ThE MoP haiREd BoY
06:41PM
“We’re looking for glowing green moss. It’s important.” The mop haired boy speaks and the words though bubbling are audible, and soon he swims off, hurtling kick legged into the waters in search of his treasure.
Rye Simmons
06:41PM
When she’s eventually forced to breathe, the blonde is bewildered, but attempts to calm down. She goes limp in Lux’s hold rather quickly, a little worn out from that moment.
ThE MoP haiREd BoY
06:41PM
“CoMe On!”
Abygail
06:41PM
*swims to the light then gasping for air* i hate water!!!!
ThE MoP haiREd BoY
06:42PM
“You”ll GeT used to It”
*bubble bubble*
Magnus Burnsides
06:42PM
Magnus works on treading water, though he swims toward the nearest person; the Professor. “You alright?” he attempts to ask, even if his voice is all bubbles and distortion. He glances around for the moss the boy mentioned.
Rye Simmons
06:42PM
“Hey, pal, might need help.” God, talking like this was weird, but she perks up enough to talk to Lux again. “I can’t swim. Never liked the ocean or nothin’.”
Abygail
06:42PM
i am neko i dout it *Growls and follows the boy*
Narrator
06:43PM
The ocean is vast and though you see, that is limited to a few meters in every direction. There are fish here, they rush by, rainbow schools of pink and orange, glowing fish, and dragon fish, and little unicorn beasts that hurtle through the depths around you.
??? ??????g
06:43PM
“No warning about the water then?” He bubbled out, not really enjoying the fact that he was in water. Following the boy, his mismatched gaze scoured the area. Moss? All this for moss?
ThE MoP haiREd BoY
06:44PM
*Swims, swims, swims*
*swims down towards a rocky outcropping, vanishing amongst the pointy peaks of bone white rock that jut up like jagged dagger towers from the outcropping stone shelf below. *
L?x, the Grey.
06:44PM
He felt irritated at himself, although trudged on. His legs kicking powerful as he held Rye comfortably underneath his strong, yet thin arm. “Noted, under the sea and all that.” He said, his cool demeanour seeming slightly shifted. Odd, no bubbles formed from his lips under the water…
ThE MoP haiREd BoY
06:44PM
“I didn’t know it’d be underwater… gurgle gurgle bubble pop”
Abygail
06:44PM
*looks around at the rocks and such* moss is everywhere how are we soused to find green moss when its all green
Professor Chronotis
06:45PM
“Quite fine, young man.” A thankful nod was given to Magnus, before she decided she may as well venture forward. Moss… In water this deep? That seemed unlikely, but perhaps it was a unique species on this planet.
ThE MoP haiREd BoY
06:45PM
“It’ll be glowing”
Narrator
06:45PM
Something swims by and nips at Aby’s leg
Abygail
06:45PM
*yelps* what the hell!!
Magnus Burnsides
06:45PM
“We should look for that moss. I think it’s supposed to glow…” Magnus is about to offer an arm, but she’s already moving. He smiles and follows suit, his excitement quickly overtaking his fear. He swims down further, still peering for that glow.
Narrator
06:46PM
A school of fish suddenly float around Chronotis’s head, their dancing bodies a chaotic rush of blinding colors.
ThE MoP haiREd BoY
06:46PM
“It’s down here, I can smell it”
Narrator
06:46PM
It is of course impossible to smell underwater.
ThE MoP haiREd BoY
06:46PM
*is doing it*
Abygail
06:46PM
*rubs my leg* ouch what the hell was that
??? ??????g
06:46PM
If he could hum, then Ash’d be happily humming ‘Under Da Sea’, of course, his focus was just on trying to find the moss. Though…his attention did get taken by a few passing fish. Such interesting colours.
Professor Chronotis
06:47PM
“Glowing?” Well… That made things hard. Light didn’t travel the same through liquid as it did through air. But, this liquid was breathable? Maybe the characteristics weren’t the same. Either way, she did her best to be on the look for glowing things. There was color, of course, from the school of fish that swam overhead. Nature was a fun thing to experience.
Rye Simmons
06:47PM
On instinct, like a cat chasing a laser pointer, Rye takes a swipe at a fish that gets near and misses. “How long until we find it?” She asks aloud. She realizes she has goggles that are thoroughly useless in this situation.
Narrator
06:47PM
The creature turns, then surges towards Aby, a snake like fish with tiny jaws clomping towards her.
As Rye swipes, a fish snaps at her underarm,. clinging there for a moment with razor sharp teeth.
Magnus Burnsides
06:48PM
Magnus stops as soon as the fish rustle around the Professor’s head, he offers a large hand her way. It’s tough to maintain buoyancy but he manages to grab her hand and tug her away from the glowing group. “Sorry, you can take a look later.”
ThE MoP haiREd BoY
06:48PM
“Not much further”
Abygail
06:48PM
you’ve got to be joking *swims to a rock* screw this
Narrator
06:48PM
The glowing school of fish follow the professor, and one of them, glancing a fin across her face, sends a jolting shock into her skin.
Rye Simmons
06:48PM
Rye shrieks and flaps her arm, ice starting to grow over her arm and threatening to envelop the fish. “DAMMIT!”
Narrator
06:48PM
The tiny fish pursues Aby, swimming faster, chomping more agressively.
Magnus Burnsides
06:49PM
“Hey!” Magnus shakes a fist at the fish, like that’ll really do anything. He tries to swim a little faster toward the mop haired boy, pulling Chronotis with him.
Narrator
06:49PM
Another fish latches itself to Rye’s ankle, and then one catches hold of her wrist. The first freezes off but more are coming.
Abygail
06:49PM
you’ve got to be kidding *swims around trying to get away* THIS IS WHY CATS HATE WATER HELP!!
??? ??????g
06:49PM
“If you know where it is…why did- Why do you need our help?” Always a curious one and always prying. He liked answers really, not knowing things made him uncomfortable
*.
Narrator
06:49PM
A couple of the rainbow fish float forward and casually strike Magnus with a couple of jolts of electricity.
ThE MoP haiREd BoY
06:50PM
“Because of things like the crazy ass fish that are coming to kill us all”
Professor Chronotis
06:50PM
“I’ll very well look where I please, actually.” The Professor yanked her hand away from Magnus, politely. Fish didn’t scare her! Even when one of them gave her a nice shock, all she did was jump. “A-ha! Defense mechanism, that’s all. Don’t harm the things, they’re just protecting themselves!” She smacked Magnus’s hand and elected to keep on swimming.
Narrator
06:50PM
A shark suddenly appears, surging towards Ash, spikes jutting from its body.
Abygail
06:51PM
lets fishys i’m having fish for dinner *Grabs the fish on rye’s ankle and slinging it away* were all gonna die
Narrator
06:51PM
An enormous octopus floats down from the abyss, and grabs at Lux, tentacle arms seeking to slam him into a rocky outcropping.
Magnus Burnsides
06:51PM
“Sorry, sorry…” Magnus mumbles and rubs his smacked hand ruefully, head bowed like a child caught stealing cookies. He winces as the jolts sting, but otherwise heeds the professor’s advice and doesn’t harm them. He continues swimming toward the mop haired boy.
Narrator
06:52PM
A half dozen eels sluice down towards Aby, sparks shooting from their slimy forms.
Rye Simmons
06:52PM
Ice sprawls over her body like make shift armor, and she veeeeery carefully shifts her goggles from her head to her face to keep water out of them. She mostly succeeds. “Dude, I’m gonna try to keep on the defense!” She speaks to Lux, and in her hands a spear of ice starts to form, polished and slick.
Narrator
06:52PM
The rainbow school of fish grows more aggressive, harder spikes of electric jolt lancing into Magnus and Chronotis the further they go, even as the cluster of sizzling creatures grows from a group to a cloud.
??? ??????g
06:52PM
“Good answers.” Ash replied as he noticed the spiky shark. Sharks? Oh dear. If his revolver worked underwater then he’d be a happy man, but it didn’t. Out of mild panic, he waved his hand towards the shark; distorting the water with a telekinetic wave, hoping to knock the shark off it’s course.
Abygail
06:53PM
nevermind i think i’ll take milk for dinner *Swims past the mop haired boy* betetr run
L?x, the Grey.
06:53PM
He seemed to move through the water, casually. As Rye starts to flail, he notices the schools of fish. He then thrusted forwards to avoid the fish that was nibbling on his… accomplice. Embarrassing as it seemed, he felt he should help her. The octopus gets a sword poked at it’s head almost too care-free. He hurries to avoid the animals.
Narrator
06:54PM
The shark is smashed off course by Ash’s attack, its tail crashing into Aby. But it quickly recovers and rushes back at its original prey, some of its spikes breaking off to shoot like spears.
Magnus Burnsides
06:54PM
Magnus, halfway through curling in pain from the shocks, realizes the belt buckle he has is his Defender’s Dial. What an idiot, he is. He grits his teeth and manages to switch the dial towards the lightning bolt. He’ll take halved damage from electric attacks, even if their stinging has gotten pretty painful. Determined not to agitate the fish more, he swims through them until there’s a break in the cloud.
Narrator
06:55PM
The headless octopus smashes a tentacle into Lux’s shoulder, a new head growing in turn.
Rye Simmons
06:54PM
She keeps ready to strike at anything that might come near Lux and herself, squinting through the tinted glass of her goggles.
ThE MoP haiREd BoY
06:55PM
“Did we take two lefts and a right? Or was it two rights and a left?”
Is a little lost.
Abygail
06:55PM
*feels a few ribs crack and i whimper and struggle to swim* we need to find that moss
Narrator
06:55PM
A swordfish slams its spear headed snout towards Ryes back, will she notice in time?
??? ??????g
06:56PM
Damn shark. Again, the bounty hunter sent a telekinetic wave the shark’s way. This one was more controlled; faster, harder, aiming to both knock the spike spears aside whilst also aiming to force the shark either off course once again or just crush it’s stupid head.
Narrator
06:56PM
The break in the cloud is filled by the form of a massive starfish. It floats before Magnus and Chronotis, twirling, sparking, and then sends a wave of red hot steaming heat towards them both.
Abygail
06:56PM
*looks at rye* RYE! *Pushes her out the way
Rye Simmons
06:57PM
Rye jabs her spear at the octopus, more preoccupied with the task at hand than paying attention where she cannot see. Although she does have icy armor!
Narrator
06:57PM
The shark has learned, it sends its own telekinetic wave crashing into Ash’s, the two crashing and cancelling, the massive beast surging through the wake.
Magnus Burnsides
06:57PM
“Oh come ON! I just switched it!” Magnus groans and, though slowed due to the water, pulls his silver shield from his back. Bracing himself behind it, he swims back toward the Professor to protect her too.
ThE MoP haiREd BoY
06:57PM
Aby sees something green and glowing, down in the cleft of a rock just underneath the flailing octopus.
Professor Chronotis
06:58PM
What to do, what to do? These fish attacks were most troublesome. Feeling around in the inside of her coat. the Professor found her sonic pen. It was a little thing, and she rarely used it, but maybe… Sound! Sound waves traveled faster in water! She just needed to make a big enough, disturbing sound to repel all these agitated creatures. Maybe. She calibrated it quickly, and then pressed a button, hoping the annoying frequency she sent out would deter the fish.
Narrator
06:58PM
Rye slams her spear into the octopus’s torso and acid spews out into the water, creating a cloud of death around the dying being.
Abygail
06:58PM
*Smiles* its my lucky day *swims towards it and grabs it* Mop haired boy look!!!
Narrator
06:59PM
The sound blasts rushes through the school of fish, and over a hundred of the tiny colorful shockers are stunned and sent belly up unconscious floating towards the watery sky.
Rye Simmons
06:59PM
“Ohhh… my bad…” She winces, wriggling a bit in Lux’s hold. “I’m trying to be /helpful,/ but I keep feeling like I’m not.” Yes, there’s still time to complain.
??? ??????g
06:59PM
Now that’s hardly fair. Ash’s face fell to a scowl and he motioned his arm in a upward curve. It was another telekinetic wave, much stronger than the two before but this one was aimed underneath the shark in an attempt to force it upwards, or break it in half if possible.
Narrator
06:59PM
Abygail swims down through the octopus acid blood and is burned savagely, her flesh crawling with chemical flames that char and start to melt her.
The wave crashes backwards again, this time slamming into a stony cliff, stunned by Ash’s attack.
Magnus Burnsides
07:00PM
Magnus stops halfway, the Professor’s capable of taking care of herself. She’ll be fine. He keeps his shield up as he swims toward the starfish, kicking fast to gain speed in order to ram into it.
L?x, the Grey.
07:00PM
He seemed to flinch, glancing at the blow to the shoulder. His hand surrounding by lightning, using a more dangerous method, using the lightning to dance all around the area at least a couple feet to shock the animals to at least keep him and Rye plenty of time to escape and follow the child. “This is more than I asked for. You owe me one.” He held Rye close to his body.
Abygail
07:00PM
*screams in pain*
Narrator
07:01PM
The flailing dying octopus swinging wild tentacles above Aby’s burned form.
is*
ThE MoP haiREd BoY
07:01PM
“Someone get the moss”
Abygail
07:01PM
*swims to a rock crying form the pain*
Rye Simmons
07:01PM
“Oh yeah, I was hoping I didn’t cause more trouble so I wouldn’t have to /owe/ you but looks like I’m stuck repaying you for this horse shit.” Rye sighs. She still holds her spear defensively, keeping on look out.
Professor Chronotis
07:02PM
Satisfied with her nonlethal method, Chronotis swam to rejoin these other souls that were with her. Someone seemed to be able to find the moss, thankfully. Maybe now they could go? Or at least relocate somewhere else with less territorial fish.
??? ??????g
07:03PM
Even with it stunned, pained or whatever the hell the damn shark was feeling, Ash drew his revolver. Things were on fire underwater and they were even talking so…bullets could work. Closing one eye, the bounty hunter aimed the pistol and fired off one simple test shot; aiming for the shark’s side whilst also seeing if it would work. If not? Well, mild panic would probably ensue.
Hamlet
07:03PM
And Hamlet appeared, blinking and looking around in curious excitement. It would take him a while to catch up.
Narrator
07:03PM
Magnus slams into the starfish, and as he does the creatures body and he does it explodes, searing light and energy radiating outwards, causing the waters to sizzle and steam even beneath the depths of the waves.
Abygail
07:03PM
*lays on a rock to weak to go on crying from the pain*
Narrator
07:03PM
Hamlet is underwater and once he allows himself to drown he can breathe.
Hamlet
07:04PM
Did Hamlet need to breathe to begin with? Do dreams need to breathe? Well, Hamlet will be out of commission for about five minutes as he panics, flails, and drowns. He did not like being underwater. He was reminded of his grandmother Night’s realm, which was surrounded by water, and was hellishly cold.
Narrator
07:04PM
The shark is just about to crash into Ash when the revolver fires at the beast, point blank. The creatures head explodes, blood fills the water, and its massive body slams into its prey, though only as a lifeless half headed corpse.
L?x, the Grey.
07:04PM
“Maybe we can just go out for a drink.” He grumbled, opening a packet of soaked sour candies and took some into his mouth. Kinda embarrassed about the whole situation, but handled it well. He narrowed his eyes, searching for something to kill.
Magnus Burnsides
07:04PM
Magnus braces himself behind his shield, trying to avoid the worst brunt of the ensuing burns. His calves get scorched a little, but the cold water’s soothing. “SORRY!” he shouts to everyone else present, that much light can’t be good.
Rye Simmons
07:04PM
“Did we get any moss?” A thought suddenly occurs.
ThE MoP haiREd BoY
07:05PM
The mop haired boy floats over to Aby and looks at her.
“Can I have my moss?”
Hamlet
07:05PM
Hamlet resurfaced from drowning, hacking and sounding half dead. “Why do you desire /moss/?!”
Abygail
07:05PM
oh if i could i’d hurt you *whimpers as i sit up and hands him the moss* next time get someone else to get it for you
Narrator
07:07PM
A group of electric eels float into view around Rye, like an oncoming storm front of electric energy.

Ohcomeon. Ash grunted for a second as the corpse slammed into him; his hands finding some non-spiked areas of the shark’s body so he could hold it back /and/ prevent himself from getting impaled. “Can. We. Leave. Yet?!”
ThE MoP haiREd BoY
07:07PM
The mop haired boy takes the moss, then he pulls out a pipe, and places the moss in its bowl. Somehow, he produces a light under the water, and as he does, he reveals that there are thousands of watery beasts around you all, lurking in the depths, waiting to strike.
Magnus Burnsides
07:07PM
Magnus, now that his starfish foe is defeated, swims over to Rye and the others. “Is everyone alright?” he asks, sliding his shield onto his back.
ThE MoP haiREd BoY
07:07PM
Then he lights and smokes, and as he breathes out smoke into water, the fish recede, the waters clear.
And, in an extra flourish of FaE magics, Aby’s wounds heal. Mostly.
She still has a scar on her right cheek.
“Thanks”
So, who wants the key?
Abygail
07:08PM
not me *scoots away*
Magnus Burnsides
07:08PM
“I’ll take it.” Magnus says, though he’s unsure exactly who he’s directing it too.
Narrator
07:08PM
(Alright, I need a volunteer, first come first serve, to be the DM for the next part of the mission, choose the location, and set the tone.)
Rye Simmons
07:08PM
Rye garbles something unintelligible before once they’re on land, she shoves away from Lux. “Oh, FUCK that was weird!” The blonde wheezes.
Professor Chronotis
07:08PM
Oh, there was that Hamlet boy, looking somewhat foolish. The last thing anyone needed to do underwater was panic, and yet he did. It was unfortunate that these other people couldn’t manage to deal with the local wildlife in a safe manner, leading to creatures that she’d never seen before being snuffed out. Swimming around, Chronotis elected to wondering if she was on the same planet anymore. Maybe? But where? Looking at this odd boy, she squinted. “You’re giving us turns with your teleportation device?”
Narrator
07:08PM
(With my full help so don’t be nervous.)
(Also, please reply ooc so I know you’re cool with DMing)
(Co-DMing)
Magnus Burnsides
07:09PM
(I’m willing to go first lol)
Narrator
07:09PM
(Magnus it is!)
??? ??????g
07:10PM
(I’m alright DMing, wouldn’t mind going last-ish, to formulate some kind of plan.)
ThE MoP haiREd BoY
07:10PM
The mop haired boy tosses Magnus the key, completely disinterested in the thing now that he had what he came for.
Abygail
07:11PM
*gets up and stretches* please can we go somewhere dry now
Hamlet
07:11PM
Hamlet blinked at the key. “I desire some explanation,” he said, hanging back near Chronotis, who he figured would be the most likely to rant an explanation to him.
ThE MoP haiREd BoY
07:11PM
And of course, the instant Magnus touches the key, a swirling vortex opens.
“Hell if I know”
Rye Simmons
07:11PM
“We’re on an adventure, Hamlet!” Rye calls to him. “It’s some dimensional bullshit!”
Hamlet
07:11PM
“I gathered /that/.”
L?x, the Grey.
07:11PM
“Apparently so…” He seemed to be shoved away, his hair drying already with a huge wisp of steam. He pops a squat and casually pokes into the ground, causing a rift to form. A portal, a portal home. A one way ticket, he was bored. He was… somewhat entertained, but bored regardless. His particles seemed to be pulled into the portal almost scattered-like. “That’s enough for me.”
Rye Simmons
07:12PM
“That’s all I know!” Rye says cheerfully. She pulls her goggles away from her face to empty water out of them before she snaps them back into place.
??? ??????g
07:12PM
“I don’t think it’s just a teleportation device.” He said, now looking over to Chronotis as he just managed to compose himself. Well, he had something to tell folks when he got home. He fought a spiky shark underwater with a revolver. With a small sigh, he just unloaded the single spent bullet from his revolver and reloaded it, fishing a bullet out from within his jacket pocket. This should be a fun night.
Rye Simmons
07:13PM
“Okay, dude. Have fun. Should I get you like some fries or something as payment for you help?” She grins at Lux. Still thinking with her stomach.
Magnus Burnsides
07:14PM
Magnus turns the key the minute he catches it. The swirling vortex shimmers silver and, instantly, everyone’s transported to a massive wooden bridge over a pit of lava in an immense valley. On one end of the bridge lies a dense forest, the other side a volcano that happens to be erupting and spilling the lava into this valley. The key vanishes and Magnus grabs onto one of the ropes for stability.
L?x, the Grey.
07:14PM
Eventually, he begun to sink into the portal, before becoming scattered into cube-like particles and they got sucked into the portal haphazardly without warning. Swept away just like that with the portal closing behind him.
Abygail
07:14PM
another adventure…yay *shakes my body drying off quickly*
Narrator
07:15PM
The heat is oppressive, the air thick, shimmering with waves of temperature and sparks of white hot lava that splatter against unprotected flesh.
Magnus Burnsides
07:15PM
“I was trying to think of someplace nice! I swear!” Magnus yells, shaking as he tries not to look down.
Hamlet
07:15PM
“I thought you needed sparks and powder to fire a gun,” Hamlet said, staring at the revolver. “How does it work underwater?” Hamlet clearly did not know how modern firearms worked. He was thinking of older tools that couldn’t work when wet. And then he shrieked when they appeared on the wooden bridge, and clung on to one of the ropes, sinking down almost into a fencing stance to give himself more stability. “Oh, God! Sir Magnus, where are we?”
Abygail
07:15PM
*my cat ears drop along with my long black tail* your joking
Rye Simmons
07:15PM
Rye trots after Magnus. Now no longer worrying about swimming, she’s more than excited to go explore. “So what’re we doing here, huh?” With ice still active, she easily stays cool, running right up to stick to Magnus’ side.
Professor Chronotis
07:16PM
“I don’t approve of such… blatant disregard for the effects this might have on space-time.” She wasn’t going anywhere near that thing. She almost wanted to request going home, but that would mean backing down from this chance at gaining ‘new knowledge and experiences’… So, instead, she endured another gut-wrenching, space-bending, sudden trip to a new location. She coughed up any liquid in her lungs, and QUICKLY checked her hair before taking note of her surroundings.
ThE MoP haiREd BoY
07:16PM
“Space time is a joke”
“You should look it up”
The mop haired boy is there, aloof.
Abygail
07:17PM
funny very funny *tries not to smack the mop haired boy*
ThE MoP haiREd BoY
07:17PM
*tries not to want it*
??? ??????g
07:17PM
Oh-okay, this was happening now. Ash found himself off guard for a moment as stood on the bridge, am arm flailing to grab a rope. Okay, fire, heat, scalding temperatures. He was actually fine with this. This was near enough the bounty hunter’s natural habitat, minus the lava of course. “I just shoot the things…Hamlet. I was…just as surprised as you.” Modern firearms were different but Ash knew that his revolver shouldn’t have really worked…at all.
Magnus Burnsides
07:18PM
“I don’t know! I was trying to think of like, a small town or a nice forest!” Magnus is a little flustered as the center of attention, glancing from Hamlet to Rye. The volcano’s still spilling lava down it’s side and there’s a loud crack from within. A piece of molten rock fires out of the top and hurtles down to the bridge, threatening to smash into one side and cut off an escape.
Hamlet
07:18PM
“Can you shoot the damn fire?!” Hamlet shrieked.
Narrator
07:18PM
A massive pillar of flame suddenly erupts next to Rye, a pilalr of heat and scorching death that sends splatter shards of fire spluttering before it recedes.
The bridge shakes.
Abygail
07:19PM
*Smacks the mop haired boy* thats for almost getting me killed!!!
Rye Simmons
07:19PM
Instincts firing off again at a fast object in her line of sight, she shoots a beam of ice at the molten rock. And then with a shriek she’s scrambling forward to avoid the fire.
ThE MoP haiREd BoY
07:19PM
*The MoP Haired Boy ISn’t There*
*he moans ALL the same*
Magnus Burnsides
07:20PM
Magnus pulls his shield out again, to defend against anymore fire pillars. The molten rock’s knocked enough off course by Rye that it simply falls into the lava below. Which is steadily rising, by the way.
??? ??????g
07:20PM
“Shoot it? No. Manipulate it? Yes!” Ash called back as he managed to just holster his revolver after a frantic bit of flailing. “Run to the forest, I presume?”
Narrator
07:20PM
Ice hits fire and the result is a massive gust of fiery steam that washes over the group and the bridge, causing twines and ropes to stretch and melt slightly in its wake, the rocky remains making the bridge shake even more.
Professor Chronotis
07:21PM
“Shooting fire is a waste of bullets.” And Chronotis didn’t approve of bullets. A volcano, though… That was interesting. “Hmm. Are we on the same planet, I wonder?” Because this might be a chance to gather geological data. If it wasn’t so dangerous, of course. The forest might offer safety. Maybe this experience wouldn’t be rewarding.
Narrator
07:21PM
Overhead, in the dark, midnight sky, flickering lights can be seen descending.
Magnus Burnsides
07:21PM
“Good idea! Everyone, we gotta move!” Magnus shouts and takes off running toward the forest side of the bridge, forcing himself not to look down. Or up, really.
Rye Simmons
07:21PM
“LET’S JUST BOOK IT!” Rye starts to scramble across the bridge, aiming to get off as fast as possible.
Hamlet
07:21PM
The bridge shook, and Hamlet let go of the melting rope with a cry of pain, staggering like he was drunk and stumbling, nearly falling to his knees on the bridge. He followed Magnus towards the forest as best as he could. He wasn’t moving particularly quickly, though.
Magnus Burnsides
07:22PM
With the excess heat from the fire pillar and the rising lava, the ropes that hold the bridge start to break off. One by one, with each rushed footstep, the bridge gets more and more rickety. It shakes with the excess weight and, almost from a bad action movie, planks start falling off the volcano side and dropping into the lava.
Narrator
07:23PM
The flickering lights above grow closer, blobs of fire, surging, watching, menacing.
??? ??????g
07:23PM
Shooting fire is most certainly a waste of bullets. The bounty hunter just grumbled as he found his booting, soon following the others with a good bit of urgency.
Abygail
07:23PM
hey lets throw the mop haired boy in the lave and say he fell *Smirks*
Narrator
07:23PM
One shoots a bolt of flame at Hamlet.
Another sends a spear of fire at Abygail.
Abygail
07:24PM
*Doges it* no no
Hamlet
07:24PM
“/No/!” Hamlet flung himself onto the bridge to try and avoid the bolt of flame, his weight likely causing it to shift a good deal, and then scrambled to get back onto his feet and run for the forest.
Narrator
07:24PM
The fire bolt misses Aby, and the other slashes past Hamlet and into the bridge, ripping a hole into it directly in front of him.
Professor Chronotis
07:25PM
These people were much too excited for her tastes. There was something to be desired when it came to grace under pressure? That was the Professor. She moved in a hurry, but not in a mad rush. Once she got her feet on firm ground, she chose to look back at the volcanic activity for a while.
Magnus Burnsides
07:25PM
Magnus glances over his shoulder to see just how many people bothered to follow him. He trips over his own feet as Hamlet’s fall shakes the bridge, but he scrambles back up in seconds. The planks continue to fall, gradually catching up to the group.
Rye Simmons
07:25PM
Rye hisses in annoyance, although she does whirl around to check on those behind her. “HEY, YOU ALL STILL ALIVE BACK THERE?” Helpful.
Hamlet
07:25PM
Well, shit. Hamlet was stuck, frozen in place and staring at the hole into the lava. “Not for long!”
Narrator
07:25PM
A blast of fire rips up through the bridge, directly in front of Chronotis, possibly singeing her face and chest.
The fiery beasts above are growing larger… closer…
More spears of flame blast down from the sky.
Rye Simmons
07:26PM
Rye starts to rush back. “I got this!” Power surging in her left hand, she flings a bolt of ice to glue up the hole in the bridge. “That’s not gonna hold so hurry!” Rye holds her hand out, just in case.
Abygail
07:26PM
*shakes my head* were all gonna die
Narrator
07:26PM
Blast, a flash of fire surges towards Ash.
Hamlet
07:26PM
“Thank you!” Hamlet was scrambling across the hole in the bridge and running to Rye.
Narrator
07:27PM
Flames flush down towards Aby, one, then another.
Magnus Burnsides
07:27PM
Magnus finally makes it to the solid forest side, the falling planks have caught up to Hamlet by now and shatter away mere seconds after he steps onto the ice.
Abygail
07:27PM
*runs* i don’t wanna die!
Rye Simmons
07:27PM
As long as Hamlet doesn’t fall again Rye gets moving. She doesn’t speak, focusing on the simple act of not falling down.
??? ??????g
07:27PM
Not a smart move from Hamlet there. Ash swore in some language of old as he stumbled slightly from the shaking bridge but he kept moving. As the fire came towards him, he held out his right hand, hoping to actually absorb the flames into his palm whilst also running like a madman. Oh, don’t die, don’t die, don’t die.
Narrator
07:27PM
SNAP, a rope breaks, and the entire bridge suddenly shifts sideways.
Abygail
07:28PM
why why why
Professor Chronotis
07:28PM
A light singeing was uncomfortable, with a pinch of pain, but survivable. Chronotis didn’t seem happy with the pace of everyone on this bridge.
Magnus Burnsides
07:28PM
SNAP, another rope breaks, and now the volcano edge has no more support. The bridge starts to tumble toward the forest side’s cliff face. Magnus lays down and reaches out his hand for anyone to grab.
Rye Simmons
07:29PM
Rye lets out another unintelligent screech, JUST at the end and clawing at anything she can reach to get off. She snags Magnus by the arm and clings for dear life. She’s not all that difficult to lift, being rather light weight.
Narrator
07:30PM
The flame beasts are now hovering close, hot, their presence a burn on flesh, their spears of flame lashing at the bridge and any who cling to it.
Magnus Burnsides
07:30PM
Magnus pulls Rye up until she’s at least halfway onto the forest side of the valley, leaning over and reaching farther with his other hand to anyone else. The remaining wooden slats slam into the rock face and now look to be some terrible makeshift ladder.
Hamlet
07:31PM
Hamlet was nearly falling, then, and scrabbling at the end of the bridge, just managing to cling on to it. “Heaven and earth! For the love of /God/, someone assist!”
Rye Simmons
07:31PM
She’s at least an accomplished climber! Rye pulls herself onto solid land with a sigh, flopping down onto the ground.
Narrator
07:31PM
A blast of fire crashes into the rocks to Hamlet’s right
A bolt of fire flings towards Magnus and Rye as he helps her up
Rye Simmons
07:32PM
No time to relax then. Pushing herself back up she throws a bolt of ice as an answer, aiming to intercept.
??? ??????g
07:33PM
Not. Fun. With a grunt, Ash jumped forwards; slamming into the edge of the forest with a heavy thump as he hit the rock face. All those weapons were a burden on him sometimes. Wincing, he tried to slowly pull himself up; fingers just clawing into the dirt and grass so he could find some kind of grip.
Narrator
07:33PM
Sizzling searing steam as ice meets fire, but the flame turns to rock and drops before Rye’s ice bolt.
Magnus Burnsides
07:33PM
Magnus doesn’t have time to put his shield up and instead just rolls to one side, clinging to the grass to avoid pitching over the edge. “Hang on, Hamlet!” he yells and grabs onto one of the bridge’s ropes, steadily climbing down the ladder-bridge to reach him.
Hamlet
07:34PM
“What do you imagine I’m…” Nearly the second Magnus was within arms length, Hamlet was attaching himself to him with an incredibly tight grip, nails probably digging into the man’s skin. “/Thank you/.”
Rye Simmons
07:34PM
Rye sees Ash, moving to grab his wrist. “Hey, I can help!” She offers.
Narrator
07:34PM
And on the other side, in the forest, are there eyes watching, are there creatures stirring?
Horns do blare and call.
Magnus Burnsides
07:35PM
The lava continues to rise as there’s another colossal BOOM from within the volcano. It’s roughly about four feet from Hamlet’s shoes, but Magnus quickly grits his teeth through the tight grip. A grunt and he pulls the Prince of Dreams on his back, climbing back up the ladder-bridge as fast as he can.
Narrator
07:35PM
A blast of fire from a creature above send the mountain shaking with the force of the impact.
Tremors rock the earth.
??? ??????g
07:36PM
“Not going…to turn down help.” Ash grunted out. He was a fairly heavy fellow thanks to all the junk he carried on himself but with Rye’s assistance, the bounty hunter managed to get a leg up onto the edge; allowing him to pull himself up and away from the pit of lava. “…Mater.”
Magnus Burnsides
07:37PM
The tremors sift the lava and buy Magnus just barely enough time to finish climbing. When he’s at the top he rolls Hamlet off of his back and onto the soft grass, collapsing himself on the edge and breathing hard. As the last people are saved from the fiery demise, the poor ladder bridge catches on fire from the lava’s heat and sizzles away.
Professor Chronotis
07:37PM
The Professor took the time, once she was on firm ground, to actually crouch down and briefly touch a hand to the ground, just to better get a feeling of the tremors. She hadn’t been so close to what seemed an epicenter of a major geological event before! That was uniquely exciting, for a change.
Rye Simmons
07:37PM
Rye grabs one of Ash’s wrists with both hands, pulling with all the strength she can muster. “It’s the least I can do…” The blonde murmurs, although groans in annoyance. “It just NEVER ends, huh.”
Magnus Burnsides
07:38PM
“Sorry… I should’ve… gone back sooner…” Magnus pants to Hamlet, coughing a little as he pushes himself onto his elbows. Even with ash dusting his auburn hair, he gives a wide smile. “But you’re okay… and that’s what matters.”
??? ??????g
07:39PM
“Most…folk should know this.” He muttered out, now rolling to the side so he could now lie on his back, staring up at the sky with a heavy sigh. “Anyone burnt?” He questioned, turning his head to just look over at the others with a small wince. Damn revolver smacked into his hip when he jumped.
Narrator
07:39PM
Magnus may notice something. A spear, wreathed in flames and magma and light. It is sticking out of the earth, directly beside him and if his attention wanders to it he will know that the spear of magma and flame is now his, he found it, even if he didn’t know he wanted it, and the power of volcanic mastery is his. If he so wishes.
At the same time the key appears, that magical key, floating in the air.
(I need a new volunteer DM)
(Who wants to choose the next adventure?)
Rye Simmons
07:40PM
(I can try!)
Narrator
07:40PM
(Rye is in)
The key descends upon Rye, light alighting upon her like a golden shroud, and then, it vanishes, and a portal appears.
Magnus Burnsides
07:41PM
Magnus makes it to his feet and eyes the spear, grinning wide. Without hesitation, he pulls it from the ground, hoping it doesn’t burn his hand. “… This is pretty sweet, even if we almost died.”
Professor Chronotis
07:41PM
“It was hot for a while, but I’m not damaged.” Eyes narrowed at that floating key again… Chronotis really needed to get her ship fixed, so that she wouldn’t have to endure these rapid changes in location. “I wouldn’t call almost dying in any situation ‘pretty sweet’, though.”
Hamlet
07:41PM
“Yes. Thank you.” Hamlet stared at the portal. “/No/….not /again/…”
Magnus Burnsides
07:42PM
“I, um… I moreso just meant the spear. Not the whole dying part,” Magnus tries to clarify, grinning sheepishly. He attaches this volcano spear to his person, somehow.
Narrator
07:42PM
The flames and lava and magma begin to fill the world until eventually only the portal remains as an option.
Magnus Burnsides
07:43PM
Without further thought, Magnus rushes through the portal.
??? ??????g
07:43PM
“Not everywhere we visit is going to be so bad, Hamlet.” Ash said with a slight wince as he just brushed some ashes of the shoulders of his jacket and even out of his hair. Always in his hair. “This next place could be nice-er.” With that, he went through the portal, albeit with a bit more caution.
Rye Simmons
07:44PM
“AGAIN!” Rye cackles, leaping through the portal. On the other side, it’s dead silent. Everyone who follows finds themselves ankle deep in water, it’s perfectly still until the adventurers step in it. They’re surrounded by gigantic trees, hundreds of feet tall. Beyond that, there’s inky blackness. There’s no knowing what’s out there. “Ohoho…” The blonde is entertained.
Hamlet
07:44PM
Are we sire
(fuck ou enter)
“Are we /sure/ it’s not going to be so bad?” Hamlet pushed himself up on his elbows, staring at the portal. He groaned, clambered to his feet, and went through it.
