New Recruits! Off to join the Resistance.

Post by JMan on Fri Jul 01, 2016 12:01 pm

[Here we go!  A new RP!  Still in the midst of war, the balance of power in the world remains as fragile as ever.  A generation of youngsters born into a world of strife are beginning to grow up.  Many areas of the world remain untouched from direct confrontation, but not free from the prejudices of one side or another.  Some try to make a life as best they can, while others seek to join the conflict.  The best way to get noticed, or at least get a taste for the battlefield, is in one of the many famed gijinka arenas.

This story starts at one such arena.  It's an underground, dirty hole-in-the-ground kind of establishment.  The crowd is roudy, the winnings are crap, and the floor smells like piss and even more piss.  But, hey, everyone has to start somewhere!]


The crowd was intense.  Korvin could barely get close enough to the ring to see the fight currently taking place.  All he could tell was that one of them was getting pummeled mercilessly, and the audience wasn't exactly ready to call it a night.  Strangely, this didn't deter Korvin at all.  He felt his heart pumping, but it was more because this would be his first step towards following his dream...not that he was entirely sure he knew what his dream was.  All he knew was that it involved punching.

With a pout, he turned back to see if he could find his friend among the riotous audience;
"MANNY!?"  He called out, barely able to hear his own voice.

Manny and Korvin went way back.  He'd known the vulpix for as long as he could remember, and it was that companionship that steadied his nerves while thinking about the upcoming battle.  By some miracle they were set to fight alongside each other.  If only he could find the guy.

Manny was feeling the squeeze of the bodies as he pushed past toward the ring, "Will you stiff's MOVE!". He could see his friend searching for him and he was trying like hell to push past the crowd waving his hands "KORVIN! HEY KORVIN!". He felt a sharp jab to his side as and elbow made contact, but this wasn't going to stop him.

He made it past the last lot of howling spectators to his friend, his hand nursing his side from the elbow, "HEY MAN! DAMN ITS LOUD!", taking another look around before turning back to his friend with his trademark sly grin "How is it looking in there? You Pumped?".

Korvin smiled upon seeing his friend emerge from the crowd, unsurprisingly a little worse off for it.
"DID YOU SAY SOMETHING!?" He shouted back. The fight seemed to hit a high point, which made the crowd particularly loud in that moment. From the little he heard, though, he took a guess at what was said;

"Can't see squat, but I'm pumped. I think we'll both get broken noses!" He punctuated with a laugh...an odd follow-up, considering the subject matter.

The crowd suddenly seemed to return to a manageable noise level. A presenters voice could be heard;
"What a wild round that was. That won't be the last we see of that guy, I'm sure of it." Korvin tried to listen in, but he could tell the first half had been missed due to the crowds cheers;
"Grab a drink lads, we'll be right back with another round. Remember, if you want to pay half price, you get half a drink. You slimey c***s. We''l be riiiiight back!"

Korvin turned back to Manny, visibly grinning;
"You know what this means, Man-man?"

Manny laughed at Korvins suggestion of the two of them getting their noses broken "It means we are both about to become less pretty... Not that we are  much to look at anyway".

The crowd seemed to quieten up as soon as drinks were mentioned before a roar of excitement and enthusiasm burst almost out of no where. The air enriched with all matter of smells found a new hype as two of the ring girls jumped up on the ropes to feed more energy with a pre-match show of tits and ass.
Manny looked at his friend after a quick glance at the girls "So ready to kick some ass and then nail those asses after?" pointing to the girls. He was looking to Korvin, hoping his friend didn't see the worry of a broken nose had caused him.

Korvin's heavy-handed friendly pat on the back struck Manny, and he laughed excitedly; "I don't care about ass! But I do want to show them my battle scars afterwards."
He cracked his knuckles, and motioned for Manny to follow; "We gotta get ourselves to the pits, or else we'll miss our shot. Come on!"
Korvin began walking through the crowd towards the ring. It really was a hole in the ground. Some kind of old ruined building was providing protection from the elements above, but the floor had been ripped up and a 3 meter deep pit had been dug out from the dirt beneath. The ruin was large enough to fit a decent size audience, but there was no seating or any electricity aside from that provided by some electric types.
Korvin had no idea where everyone was getting their drinks from, but it was likely one of the vans parked outside. There was nothing professional about this establishment. As a result, fight matchings seemed to be determined by whoever happened to be first to the ringside. They had no idea who they might be up against, but as Korvin approached the 'pits' on one side of the arena, he did his best to scope out potential fighters. With such a huge crowd of thugs and crooks, they all looked like they were up for it, and not a single one of them looked a pushover.

Suddenly, the announcer spoke up again;
"SHUT UP, YOU LOT! Who wants to see some more teeth get kicked in, eh? Well we got some fresh blood up front."

Manny could see Korvin's excitement and the worry about his nose slipped away. They had been waiting a long time for this and Manny had plans to take advantage of this 'Golden' opportunity. His head filled with ideas, none all to bright. He settled up next to Korvin ready to leap in and get things started, grinning, "This is all ours Buddy, my brains your brawn.... well we won't rely on my brains" He laughed, Korvin seeing first hand what 'His Brains' had gotten them both into.

Korvin had neglected to mention how easy it was to gain entrance to these fights. Even if they missed out, there was always tomorrow night. The urgency came more from Korvin himself, who had become convinced he was ready to take the plunge.

"We'd be lost without your brains." Korvin remarked, still scoping out the competition. "I'm expecting you to come up with a winning strategy for us in the ring." This was perhaps a bit demanding of Korvin, but he had no doubts that Manny could deliver in a bind.

One of the ring girls, who had been hastily organising a spot of cleaning for the arena, was now lining up contestants for the next round. Barely able to hear her, Korvin pushed his way closer and cried out; "We're up next!"

"You the new blood I have listed here?" She shouted back over the mass of people.

"YOU BET!" Korvin flashed a thumbs up. It was almost as if the organisers had been searching for them, as the moment they'd been identified, they were hurried into the arena with the gate closing behind them.
It was a first for the night. Korvin was now in the arena, no longer contending with the audience for a sight of the action. He was IN it.

Across from him, the gates on the other side of the arena were opening. Emerging from the crowd were a pair of gijinka. A Metapod, and a Cacturne, by Korvin's reckoning. The crowd went wild as they stepped in. Clearly a pair of more recognisable faces than Korvin and Manny.

"Which one do you want?" He glanced back at Manny, smiling excitedly.

It didn't take long for Manny to rustle up a plan after seeing who they would be facing, "You take the Cacturne, you have a good mix for dealing with his type.". Manny looked toward the floor of the ring and smiled with the confidence only he had "That bug is mine, I'm gonna make him burn." He didn't go into much detail as he knew Korvin would 'read' him as the fight went on, always good to have friends who get each other.

He began to loosen his body, cracking joints and hoping about like a child high on sugar, Manny looked over at Korvin "Main thing is, keep the heat on."

The cacturne was a menacing looking character. One eye peered out from underneath the signature diamond-shaped hat, which also shaded heavily-pierced features. He wore a long, green leather outfit, studded from head to toe.

The metapod, despite its base species, looked no less experienced or menacing. With a segmented plate mask covering his mouth and nose, he looked like some kind of ninja. Albeit a very tired one.
The rest of his body was covered with a mix of plate and cloth, all of which was green.

It was clear from sight alone that the opposing team had a lot of strength defensively, and also the confidence to cover their weaknesses. Korvin didn't know what to expect from either at this point.

Korvin signaled a nod to his companion, punctuated conveniently by a roar from the audience. It seemed that the battle was about to begin. Korvin took up an even-footed stance and clenched his fists, which caused him to glow ever so slightly.

The announcer's voice boomed suddenly;
"WELL, WHAT ARE YAS WAITIN FOR!? FIGHT!"

Manny leaped into action, digging into the ground but finding it difficult to get through, so too gain some cover he fired off Ember toward the opposing gijinka. Manny glanced over at Korvin and called out "Korvin! GAS EM!". With that the ground started to give way and Manny made his way under ground, preparing for a tag team attack with Korvin.

Korvin and Manny both seemed to move at the very instant the announcer gave them the go, but their opponents seemed to be a little more relaxed and opted to wait at the other end of the arena.

Korvin charged ahead, with a growing stream of purple gas billowing out from his gauntlets. His opponent stood waiting, with hands tucked comfortably inside his own pockets. Korvin saw this as an opportunity for a first strike, and used his momentum to deliver a right jab to the Cacturne.

Unfortunately, Korvin was naturally a bit slower than his opponent. Before the jab could connect, the cacturne's boot connected with the right side of his face, and he hit the ground like a sack of door knobs. The cacturne smirked at the thought he might have an easy fight, until he noticed the poison cloud forming around the two.

As Korvin moved to stand and shook off the heavy blow he'd suffered, the glow that enveloped him earlier become a bit more bright.

The metapod, also waiting for his opponent at one end of the arena, did what metapods do best: Harden!

Manny heard a bit of a thump above ground as he worked his way toward his targets.He could hear where the other gijinka were placing their feet and concluded the thump must have been something to do with Korvin. Making his way toward where the Metapod gijinka was, he had a feeling it hadn't moved. Manny began to prepare ember as he dug up toward the Metapod, planning to hit it with a combo digemper crack! (A combination he came up with by himself, Dig+ember+a cracker of a punch to the jaw.... He has yet to try it even to see if it will work).

Because Korvin was on his knees and close to the ground, he could feel the faintest vibrations from Manny's tunneling. A plan came to mind, and he wiped the blood from his lip with one clenched fist.
At the same time, noxious fumes continued to spew from his gauntlets, clouding the arena and enveloping he and his opponent in a thick cloud. Within this cloud, Korvin's glow pulsed once more as he finalised his stockpiling.

<STOCKPILE used: 3>

The cacturne, quickly realising his upper hand might not be so assured, decided that a quick leap backwards and out of the gas cloud would be the best move. Still, unable to see Korvin, the cacturne opted for a defensive strategy. The studded spikes on his clothing sharpened and grew outwards, and the tips of those spikes turned purple as an unknown liquid seeped out. <GROWTH + POISON STING>

Meanwhile, the metapod had turned his attention to the ground around his feet. He was anticipating something, but all he could do to prepare was solidify his defense; <HARDEN used: 2>

Many burst forth from the ground "SURPRISE BEAN MAN!". Gripping the side of the hole he just made, he flung himself backward flicking his tail toward the chin of the Metapod, his tail alight with ember and preparing to follow up with a twin barrel kick to his chest.

The metapod was watching the ground intently, when suddenly a blur of fur and embers emerged beneath him. The display was so disorientating, he was caught almost completely off guard. The embers dazzled and singed him slightly, forcing him to react defensively. He held his arms cross-ways in front of his face, bracing from the impact of the follow-up kick, which also caused him to slide backwards a little.

As well as the attack seemed to hit, the metapod's defenses were so great that he was able to sustain the hit and follow up with a counter in the same motion. He pulled his arms away from his fore, and spat out a stream of silky thread towards Manny. (STRING SHOT used, d20 roll = 14)

Korvin remained completely hidden by his poisonous gas, and the gas itself seemed like it would quickly cover the entire arena if the source wasn't dealt with. The cacturne seemed short on options. An ABSORB would prove dangerous to him, and he was holding his other attack as an ace up his sleeve. This left him with POISON STING. He started firing off poison-tipped needles into the gas cloud, knowing the poison itself wouldn't have much of an effect on the koffing gijinka. Still, the pin pricks might do some amount of damage. (POISON STING, dice roll = 12)

Korvin, protected by the gas cloud, was never struck by the stings. He remained hidden for the time being, using the time to lay out a trap of TOXIC SPIKES.

Manny was stunned to see that the Metapod took it all and barely seemed phased, as he was getting over the blow to his confidence he sore a line of string heading for him, thinking quickly he Faint attacked toward the Metapod in a zig zag shedding embers to distract and confuse the opposing gijinka. As he closed the distance he charged a stronger ember and directed it to the Metapod.

The metapod could hardly keep up with his opponent. He lacked the movepool to deal with such a fast attacker, and so his best bet was to fire off even more string in an attempt to slow Manny down. (STRING SHOT, d20 roll = 11)

This occurred right before Manny's ember went off, splashing the metapod's front with red hot embers. He leapt backwards, shielding his face only too late to avoid the damage.

The cacturne stopped firing POISON STINGS, seeing how futile it had been. Korvin, on the other hand, was finally ready to make his move. This whole time, the cacvturne had focused on the last place he'd seen Korvin, but the gas had covered a larger part of the arena by now. Korvin moved quietly around until he was off to the side of the cacturne, before emerging to sucker punch the cacturne in the side of his dumb face. The cacturne was caught unprepared, and took the punch right on his jaw.

As soon as he shook it off, though, he took a wild swing at Korvin with a fist that seemed to grow to double its normal size. (GROWTH + REVENGE, d20 roll = 16)
The attack came quickly, and Korvin could do nothing to avoid the heavy hit. Still, being a fighting-type move he managed to sustain the damage fairly well.

Manny pulled back after seeing the Metapod take his hit "You like original recipe or extra crispy?" he taunted. Manny felt something uder his foot only to look down and see he was standing on a second string the Metapod had fired and reacted on impulse letting loosed an Extrasensory attack hoping to keep pressing forward.

The metapod felt an odd, unseeable sensation wash over him from the Extrasensory attack. It started off as a slight tingling, which gave the metapod just the right reaction time to take a powerful swing at Manny. He'd been pushed on the defense too long, and was just about at breaking point.
His fist shimmered like a mirror, indicating it had been hardened. (HARDEN used, focused on the fist. d20 roll = 16)

Meanwhile, the blow Korvin had suffered did nothing to stop his poisonous fumes from spewing out. This was making the cacturne increasingly more uncomfortable. He attempted to finish off his fight by taking a swing at Korvin, but the koffing gijinka was quicker to the punch. His fist struck the cacturne's chin in an uppercut motion, and unleashed a billow of poison gas from his gauntlet on impact.
(POISON GAS resistance check, d20 roll = 20. Passed.)
