Re: Tower Descent

Yuna seemed to curl up as they explored the webbed ruin, clearly not a fan of such places at all! Lilian meanwhile just shifted in her stance, the encounter just minutes before all too fresh in her mind still.... Zana however lead the way onwards, brushing past the spidery silks without much issue or worry "Hum~ Looks like the bandits picked the wrong forest to take refuge." she'd comment passing by the hanging cocoons, long since lifeless.

"L-let's just get out of here..." Yuna rubbed her forearms as she'd walk through the ruins, being very careful not to step on any webbings or dead spiders... The warrior leading her onwards remaining silent and not meeting either of the duos eyes for now. Though it seemed the dead had left a hint of what occured here... reading the notice, Zana wouldn't comment on it to the others as she'd focus on her task... however both Lilian and her had suspicion that these people, were not entirely victims, but crazed zealots..

Still soon enough the trio found exactly what they needed as Yuna would now lead them out of the ruined fort and back to the gates! Seemed they could take a breather or head onwards to their next zone "So~ Anyone feeling tired?" Zana asked smiling to them as she was the one holding the stone "Lets continue, I'm good for another floor." "Anywhere, but this spidery hell..."

The witch snickered and activated the portal choosing to continue onwards with their journey, they didn't quite have enough loot to sell nor the injuries to require a breather yet!

Re: Tower Descent

Seemingly okay and ready to go the trio stepped threw the portal only to feel the weightlessness take hold of them before dropping them in misty damp field.


Welcome adventurers to the fields of Dread forever swallowed by midnight a cursed land.


Looking about the trio saw several lights in the distance. Once seemed to be a town while the others lonely buildings off in the distance. It was up to them where to go.

Re: Tower Descent

Yuna winced as the booming voice echoed out, Lilian gripping her blade and shiled tighter as once again their enemy spoke out... "Well he certainly has a way with names." Zana joked lightly, once again sitting on her staff in a comfy position.

"Does he always have to boom out his intros?" "Hum~ I think it's quite charming. He atleast cares enough for his game to make them." "We're in enemy territory you two. Let's focus." it would be Lilian who'd once again have to bring the others in order as she'd take the first steps forward.

"Zana, what do we know of this floor?" Lilian looked to the witch for information she read in the library,

Re: Tower Descent

Combat d6 zombies will spawn every round!
initiative
Yuna
Lillian
Zana
zombies 1-6


Zana thought carefully going over mental pictures of the books she had read about this place. All the journals usually simply stated zombies. It wasn't very descriptive and all notes of it had been hastily written. As she pondered this a dull moan echoed around the group as six rotting corpses pulled themselves up from the long grass. Each one looked different, from peasant to solider the only thing in common was the red glow in their eyes.

Re: Tower Descent

"Nothing in particular, just one word was continiously mentioned regarding the 'Mist floor'." Zana smiled casually as the two looked to her "Zombies."

Just as the witch uttered the words, suddenly moans echoed out from nearby as six shambling figures slowly stood up! "Eeep!" "By the gods... Even more undead!" "Like those..." each girl turned to the enemies and quickly took on their combat stance!

Animated or not, the creatures were still just shambling corpses!

Lilian - Retaliation activation!

Yuna always seeming to be the first to act slammed the ground hard sending all of the zombies tumbling into the grass. This bought the time for Zana to charge up her fire ball while Lillian took on a fighting stance. As shambling corpse rose again the girls noticed one more had joined the fight. Still it didn't seem to bother them as Yuna let loose with kicks and punches her blows sending a trio of zombies stumbling back slightly. Lillian moved quickly to the fore and pounded her shield drawing the ire of the undead who all looked to her. It was then Zana let loose her fireball her elemental control preventing her from damaging her friends in the close on blast which seemed to take on a swirling flame ring appearance. Once of the zombeis was incinerated instantly its body readily falling into ash. The others now smoldering shambled into to attack Lillian. For the most part Lillian was able to fend off and counter each blow but the sheer weight of numbers meant she would no doubt take some damage from the assault. Still it seemed that these zombies where not match for her armor and where all quickly cut down in turn. Still after a moment one moaned and got back up seemingly not knowing when to die.

Re: Tower Descent

The girls utterly tore through the undead, their teamwork on full display as the slow and clumsy enemies proved all too easy to control and defeat! "Nice!" Yuna called out with a beaming smile and gave her group a thumbs up "Seems like thats the last of them." Lilian added only for with a moan and grunt for one of the undead to stand back up...

"Come on guy... Really?" Yuna snickered and cracked her knuckles casually waltzing over to kick the undead back into a small neat pile. Lilian aiding if need be, while Zana just relaxed and looked on with a casual smile.

[Yuna uses Hurricane kicks.
Lilian adds a mocking slash if need be

Each girl smiled or laughed as Yuna took it upon herself to kick the remaining zombie into a pile. All too pleased with herself she was the first to catch glimpse of more zombies standing up from the grass or moving into visual range of the group. Their fight was far from over.

Re: Tower Descent

Yuna dusted her hands off and smiled indeed quite pleased how that went... only to note even more undead?! "Girls... we've got a problem!!!" indeed an equal amount of undead seemed to appear! "Damnit..." Lillian cursed as she too almost relaxed at their swift victory, heck even Zana seemed a fair bit caught off-guard by the sudden surge of the monsters.

"Run?" Yuna looked to two, as Lilian tightened the grip on her weapons "Run." she'd nod and Zana smiled to her in agreement. Yuna would once again strike the ground to buy them some ground making the unstable undead fall for now, before the trio got to running! Zana would lead the girls forward and she seemed to be heading towards the lights they had seen before.

Atleast the zombies were hardly fast enough to catch up to them.

Re: Tower Descent

As the trio ran it soon became apparent that there were three different sets of lights. Off to their left a large collection of them could be seen hinting at a town. Straight ahead was a single lone light. On their right was another set of lights smaller than the town but higher up. The girls soon had to make a choice as all around them zombies moaned. They even had to vault a few pulling themselves up from the ground.

Re: Tower Descent

"Look a town!" Yuna called out pointing to the numerous lights with a smile "With these monsters here?" Lilian considered the option as well as they kept running only for Zana to zoom closer "The town is on even ground as the zombies." she'd motion to the third light higher up "If anyone is living here, we'll find them there. A little out of reach of our fans."

The girls looked to one another and came to a unanimous decision, Zanas logic seemed quite sound... zombies were hardly good climber and the location seemed to be a fair bit above ground, while any walls of a city would eventually fall. With that the three went towards the smaller set of lights higher up.

Re: Tower Descent

Adjusting their course the girls soon out ran their pursing zombies, though they had to dispatch a few who wandered aimlessly about but where directly in their way. As they went the ground became more rough and steep the gentle grasses giving way to stunted trees and short harsh grass. Ever the closer they drew to the lone fortress which became more defined each step they took. It was an ugly thing squat with high walls covered in spikes and the spikes covered in still twitching corpses. The dark grey and black stones loomed over the trio as they made their way to the wrought Iron gate which was still open. Just as they passed the gate it was brought down with a thunderous crash. Looking back at the noise and then back forward the trio saw two dozen or so men armed to the teeth quickly surround them. Most looked like proper soldiers, while a third looked like bandits and the rest armed peasants. "By the hells more adventurers will this night never end." One of the bandit type men spoke up next. "We should just kill them and be done. Eventually the dawn will come when they stop showing up." The soilder who spoke before glared at the man. "Don't be a fool the tower master would end us all if we interrupted his game."

Re: Tower Descent

Lilian narrowed her eyes at the words her body tensing as she prepared for a potential harsh fight. Zana meanwhile smiled subtly as she too planned out an attack if the lot made the wrong move... "Hey! Hey!" Yuna however had a different approach "Relax... We're just trying to escape from the zombies as well. We mean no harm." the girl raised her hands in a stop manner, smiling in a sheepish cute manner.

"Pretty sure the things we all want to kill are outside these walls. Not in here... for both companies. So let's relax and get to know one another in a calm manner." she'd grin to them "I'm Yuna, that's Lilian in the armor and the one on the staff is Zana."

Lilian and Zana looked to Yuna, before turning to see how this lot reacted to a far more pleasant retort than the girls were greeted with.

Re: Tower Descent

The soldier speaking frowned almost apologetically to Yuna. "Listen lass... those zombies and this thrice cursed night only happen when adventurers appear. Time will not pass until all you lot move on or... are defeated by the hordes of undead." It seemed Yuna's charming nature had worn at the old man's heart a little but the news was not helpful. "In truth if you stay here the night will never end. So its best if you find your way out of her right quick."

Re: Tower Descent

Yuna smiled to the man and nodded "Sorry... We didn't exactly plan to bring this upon you." seeing the girls charm and good nature ease the townsfolk Zana spoke up as well "I assume we're not the first, do you know how we can escape?"

With their discussion starting Lilian too relaxed, as she'd listen in for now.

Re: Tower Descent

"Well girls I fear these little sheep cannot help you." Looking up all three woman found yet another demoness sitting on the wall. All around them the people in the fort seemingly froze. "At this rate the Master will get bored and well we can't have that can we." Hopping down the woman walked brazenly past Zana and right up to Yuna and gave her a pat on the head. "Oh my your a cute one I think Ill keep you when this is all over." Turning to Lillian the girl leaned against her sensually, the knights armor plates seemingly freezing up to let the demon openly play her the girls assets. Both Zana and Yuna seemed to be stuck in slow motion neither one able to act with speed. "Oh dear Lillian you should just come with me and start your training right away our mistress is in sore need of a dark knight to protect her. Leaning forward the woman gave Lillian a kiss before backing off and turning to Zana. "Witch the way out of here is to kill the necromancer bitch hiding in the ruined temple. Consider this a freebie because damn your rack makes me jealous." Moving over to Zana the girl fondled her smiling. "Ta Ta! for now lovelies" And with that the demon vanished and time seemed to catch up all at once. The old solider looked at them a moment before frowning at the combined flushed cheeks. "You three alright?"

Re: Tower Descent

And thus, suddenly a strange unlike any the girls encountered up till now appeared. Time seemed to freeze in place as the creature went from girl to girl, sharing a comment with every one of them. As well as giving each girl a different appraisal, be it a pat, a sensual brush or a lusty grasp!

As time returned to normal Yuna quickly sprung up her hands clenched into fists as she prepared to defend... or attack herself! A light growl escaping her from the demeaning pat! Lilian meanwhile seemed to turn defensive as well the womans words echoing a kin a greatest insult to her!

While Zana seemed to have focused more on the words said, rather than the acts done "Where is the ruined temple?" she'd ask the confused townsfolk all the while smiling casually, while fixing her robe from the quite juicy fondle she received.

Re: Tower Descent

The old soldier thought briefly before speaking. "Its across the valley but you'll never make it there. The journey is too long and the zombies will chase you down." The rest of the people seemed to mutter as well at the situation till the trouble maker spoke up again. "Let them try old man the soon they are gone the sooner we get back to our lives in this accursed realm." This seemed to be the general consensus among the frightened villigers while the soldiers seemed to shake thier heads at the panicked folk.

Re: Tower Descent

"We've no choice." Zana spoke up, stating it to both the townsfolk and their company "Is there no other means to cross to the temple?" she'd continue inquiring, as Yuna and Lilian followed the witches lead. Zana always seemed to know what she was doing afterall.

Re: Tower Descent

The old vet shook his head. "Its all open ground and all the animals have been secured at the fortified farm house. Thankfully the zombies leave them alone if none of us are nearby." It seemed the girls would have to go on foot. "Its too bad only the witch can fly. You might be able to make it you all could."
