First topic message reminder :

Field Theme:
 

Battle Theme:
 

A large mansion just on the bottom of the Alps, perpetually covered in snow and ice. Some travelers use this place as a respite from the harsh environment, although many who come here swear there are signs of someone living here, even though supposedly no one has inhabited the place for years. It doesn't look terribly different from what one would expect of a manor. Clearly, someone of a high stature owned the place...

Shades found in this area:

Gul'ka's jaw clenches slightly, another level of wariness setting in. He draws his knife with his free hand, and moves to gently push the door open.

Yoren has his warded sword in hand, and draws on his reserves to be ready to cast magic if needed.

Another similar sound comes from the far back of the room... Along with the sound of a person's scream. Instinctually, Miyuki runs towards the direction of the scream.

Kazuya watches her go through the corner of his eye, while starting off in another direction, a little faster than he should be able to.

Tod first thinks that the scream is a trap. Wondering how long he should remain relatively quiet, he checks his pocketwatch - a nervous habit, by this point, though it isn't exactly calibrated - and it seems to pick up something from... outside?

He stores this in the back of his mind. Is it malfunctioning? Should he tell someone? But... talking would give away his presence. He debates what to do. He settles for watching, seemingly frozen in indecision.

Gul'ka slowly opens the door, revealing the inside while keeping his gun pointed into the room.

Yoren peers within the room, but is still several feet back.

As Miyuki charges into the room where the scream came from... The door shuts, sealing itself off. At the same time, several pairs of yellow eyes glow in the room Gul'ka and Yoren are investigating. It's clear they're not alone in there. At the same time as THAT, the sound of someone fighting just outside the door can be heard.

The old man has wandered off down another corridor, at a speed that makes the cane look more like a hinderance than a help despite him still pulling most of his weight on it.

Tod notices everything happen at once and instantly makes up his mind. He follows the old man at a quite brisk pace, though he masks his unease and makes himself look quite professional here.

Gul'ka utters a short growl, unable to help being somewhat frustrated with the situation. He starts firing into the eyes, hoping that even if they're cloaked or else somehow invulnerable, it might at least make them hesitate.

Yoren discharges two of his guns into the creatures and then draws his sword.

Reacting to its master's tensions, the blade flickers to life and Yoren stabs into the nearest creature

One of the creatures dashes towards them, with a sharp blade incoming. The second creature flies around, seemingly in a panic, until it flies into a spear hung up on the wall. The spear floats up, controlled by the Anima.

As Tod and the old man approach another door up and to the left of the large set of stairs in the center of the room, more eery sounds can be heard, along with a faint female voice.

Kazuya listens for a moment, then looks at Tod. "Excuse me sonny, but can you open the door?"

Tod masks his apprehension with professional serenity. "Certainly, good sir," he says with a bow, then turns to the door and turns the handle. There's a prayer on his lips, and he's hoping he chose the right one. Ready to speak as soon as the door opens, he pulls. It creaks ever so slightly.

Gul'ka quickly empties the rest of his clip into the charging shade, bringing the knife to bear as he goes for a reload.

Yoren slings a very small orb of concentrated fire at one of the shades, which somehow targets the shade and not the house.

The fireball hits the spear, but it didn't seem to do a whole lot of damage. The other Shade appears to be momentarily stunned.

Beyond the door is a woman in a rather fancy looking dress standing cornered in the room, a couple of Soldiers approaching her.

The front door of the Manor busts open as someone charges in, heading towards the room Gul'ka and Yoren are currently battling in. "Ilya!" A man's voice calls out with concern.

The old man pushes past Tod and brandishes his cane as he addresses the soldiers. "Now now, let's not do anything rash here... What's your business with this lady?"

Tod begins muttering the words to a ballad of hope or some such. Nothing happens yet, but it seems like it's about to. This should increase the dexterity and reaction time of the old man and the lady by just enough to be helpful.

Gul'ka takes the moment to finish reloading and starts firing again.

Yoren keeps cutting at the creatures with his sword.

The katana cracks, beginning to break.

The big Shade takes a swing with its blade... But is immediately parried by a man with his own blade, leaving an opening for a finishing blow.

The Soldiers don't answer the question, of course, and deciding quick action was in order, begin to lunge at the woman.

"You shouldn't ignore your elders..." He suddenly straightens out his hunched form, lunging forward and forcing the blunt cane straight through one of the soldier's backs and out the chest.

Tod grins widely at the action, but worries on how to get the woman to escape. Voice rising to a high chant, he pulls out his knife and takes aim at one of the shades.

Suddenly he realizes what he's doing and drops the knife, jumping back several steps.
