Where ever they are, or at their homes waiting, those who are Gifted would receive a letter, addressed to Them, with a white envelop and red wax Seal, with their name on it...

Xara, the destined hero... It has been a few months since the battle to save all that was of the mortal world she knew, and the Gods that ruled them. Though without help her journey would've been an impossible task to complete, however, in her final moments when her life was on the line she had to pull through alone... And she did.

The young woman sighed though, it was not a sigh of grief though, but a sigh of joy. She felt happier, more confident; even able to take off her casts just a few days before having made a full recovery. But something was off... She glanced over at the coffee table, a letter with her name written on it, "What... Is this?" she picked it, having not seen this letter before. It looked very nice though, pure white envelope, an authentic wax seal, and her name hand written...

She did the obvious thing to do, she broke the seal, and read what was inside.

In another world, in another time. In a ruined world where her inhabitants suppressed by the empire ruled under the demonic king. Leaving those who remained to survive from day to day that's resulted of a system created by the empire. However, this isn't about this world... As this starts with a letter falling from the night sky..

Guided by the cool winds, it gently floats in the air. Until a gloved hand caught it. The owner is a boy with red hair and pointed ears, covered in a brown cloak. Golden eyes looks at the object blankly, ...A letter? He said, though his tone is wrong as it sounded empty. The boy looks around as his current location is what seem to be the topmost floor of a building, a ruined and abandoned one like the rest of this old, small town except those like him who are using it for the night.

There's no one there, even outside of the building where the rest of the ruined town and to the extent, the barren lands of the wilderness can be seen.

Looking back to the letter, he noticed that it was addressed to him. Jun Becote. ...Odd. He commented. Then the boy named Jun opens the envelope and reads the contents of the letter.

On a ruined Earth, in another timeline out of the many out there, a twenty year old man put out the final ashes of his fire in the plains as the sun began to set. Smoke during the night meant a signal for raiders and those who preyed on those in the night. As a precaution, he felt for his revolver on his left side, alongside the rapier sheathed on his right side. His headphones from home still hung around his neck, though his music player was off to conserve battery during the night.

Over the ruined landscape, a small streak of white catches his attention. With the reflexes of four years of fighting, he draws the revolver in a heartbeat. However, there is no combat to be found. Just a small, hovering piece of paper. Catching it with his bare  left hand, he looked at it with scrutiny, wondering if this was an elaborate trap.

Two minute passed by with nothing else happening, Benjamin Fermont, though he was better known as Ben to most people, holstered his gun, but remained cautious. Seeing as it was safe for the moment, he examined the paper further. What he thought was a simple sheet of paper ended up being an envelope, specifically addressed to him, his name written in fanciful handwriting. "...Possibility of something laced in the letter?" Pausing, he thought of the possibilities, "...unlikely. Getting one's hands on something like that in this world would mean that they've been into the cities. I'm at least four days out from the nearest city, and I didn't hear a car nearby. Reward outweighs probable risk."

Checking around one last time and finding it safe, Ben opened the envelope, breaking the rather ornately designed wax seal, and read the contents.

in a pocket dimension between the hyperdimensions of Gamindusri, a young girl was relaxing in the hot springs with her sister. a flock of small fluffy bunny like creatures floating in the water with them. " Ahh, this feels so good! " Ciel said as she stretched  " We haven't had any problems in months. seems everything's Stabilized for a while" she continued as she turned in the water and rested her head on one of the creatures.  after a few moments of this she started to get drowzy from the warm waters and decides to get out. " i think i'm going to go do one final check on the dimensions and call it a night. good night sister.. " she said as she waved back to her sister as she played with the strange creatures. ' just where do those things keep coming from.. they aren't from gamindustri thats for sure ' she though to herself as she got dressed before noticing a letter in the bottom of the basket. in curiousness and a hope its from her father. she opened it. and began to read what was inside.

: Kimoto September 14, 2013, 03:23:35 PM
The letter read as followed, no matter what language the holder may be able to read, they'd understand it.

Informing troubled guys and girls with special gifts:

If you so wish to test your gift,
give up your family, friends, fortune, and everything in the world,
and join us at our "Little Garden"

And as soon as they finished reading it... There was a flash, as they ended up in a Dark Cavern underground, lit very dimly.
: Re: Gift Games
: EeveeandAbsol September 14, 2013, 03:30:03 PM
Xara read the letter slowly, but the ending... Was not what she anticipated.

When the light flashed , a second light pierced, as she quickly held her hand in front of her. "Terc... Do you know what's going on?" she asked outloud, summoning a magnificent blade in her hands, "I have no clue what the hell is going, but whatever it is, this "Little Garden" shit seems more serious than just a letter."

When all the light disappeared... It was all dark, "Be prepared, kid! Light up this room!" Xara nodded quickly, taking a defensive stance with her sword as it started to emit a bright light which lit up the dark cavern.
: Re: Gift Games
: Nask September 14, 2013, 04:01:57 PM
As soon as Jun finished reading, his eyes got caught by the sudden flash of light . Causing him to raise his arm to try to avoid being blinded. When the light faded, that's when he noticed that he's in a cave of some sort as indicated by the dim lighting.

Golden eyes glanced for the moment, seem to be in deep thought. Under the cloak thought, he placed his gloved hand on a weapon for defensive measure in case of danger. It is fortunate for him that he still have it with him.

That's when a bright light is emitted behind him, causing the boy to turn around to see the source of the light. A woman that seem to be older than him, wielding a sword, which it is seem to be the source of light, defensively. His senses indicate that there's other people in the same cavern as he is, although Jun kept his attention on the woman. Putting the red-head in a alert stance, not going to attack unless he's attacked by the woman or any others.

"Garden, huh?" Benjamin had a small grin on his face as he read it, just about finishing the letter, "Well, it couldn't hurt to see some nature, I suppose. But Gift...? Then again my power is fairly common around these parts. And it's not like I've got much to lose at this point. Let me just grab my stuff-!"

Before he could reach for his lighter, the world went white. He felt as if he was being tossed through the air, as the reality he knew around him crumbled and shimmered away.

Half a second later he felt himself hitting the ground, breaking into a roll. He hissed in pain as his heel slammed into a jagged wall, and while it inflicted little actual damage, it still hurt. Getting up, he started walking, ignoring the pain, "Sure is dark around here... Stupid thing warped me without my lighter..."

He kept to the walls, using his rapier's sheath as a walking stick to tell where he was going, "Alright... let's find a way out of here. Hey... is that a light? Best to keep quiet... wouldn't want to alert them to my presence at the moment. Unknown if hostile or not..."

Entering my house, I sat down on my couch.
My shipment of pins have arrive today... I really don't consider myself a fashionable person, but I like to collect these pins.
It seems to be all over everyone these days. But me? I pretty much stay in my own world, listening to music. Looking at my pins, I slip my headphones on.
But a letter...? I open it.
As soon as I was done reading it... A flash happened and I was in a dimly-lit cavern.
I think to myself... Right now, I'm in a random cavern after reading that weird letter.
Checking my pockets... I have all my pins.
Oh well, no time to question myself. Feeling the wall... I walk forward, while putting my hands on the wall.
Just need to find the exit...

" little Garden?" Ciel questioned just before the light enveloped her.  she looked around the cavern in a daze for a few moments before smiling slightly. " i always thought this place was a fairy tail.. but to think its real..." she said in awe, realising what most likely happened, she then took notice of the others in the distance and hid behind a corner, waiting for whoever summoned them here... though to be honest its more due to her shy nature. what with her lack of a social life and all.
: Re: Gift Games
: Kimoto September 18, 2013, 02:29:52 AM
At the middle of the cavern, in between all the groups, a young boy, who could be no older than 14, was ringing a bell, as the cavern lit up, showing that it wasn't really all that large.

The boy himself wore a black vest and pants, a red dress shirt and white tie. His hair was short and red... And had two red rabbit ears on the top, matching a tail he had poking through below. His eyes were a distinct shade of orange, as he waited for everyone to come to the bell, which gave the mall a strange... Compulsion to follow the sound.
: Re: Gift Games
: EeveeandAbsol September 18, 2013, 09:08:39 AM
Xara cautiously followed the bell, her light dimming as the cavern lit up, "Whoever they-..." as she made her way through the less than big cave, she took notice of the little boy. "It's... Just a boy?" she questioned, heaving the blade up and holding it on her shoulder.

She's seen weirder, and she didn't like to offend, but she had to ask... "Excuse me, little boy... Where am I... ?" she had came up to him, not taking notice of any others who might've also come.
: Re: Gift Games
: Lione Tabuukilla Fortuna September 18, 2013, 01:02:10 PM
Benjamin froze as he heard a bell ringing, drawing his revolver. Nothing happened, but he remained cautious as he continued his walk through the cave. The light he had seen before had long vanished, since he had tried to keep his distance from said light.

At this point he was growling, the pain in his leg starting to settle in, reducing him to a limp. "For the love of all hell," he sighed to himself, "What I'd do for a flashlight at this point..." He turned the corner in the sprawling cave system, noticing that the further he went, the louder the bell seemed to ring and the more it 'called out' to him. Soon enough, he found the light from before nearby the source of the ringing. He couldn't make out the details of the figures in the light at this point, but could at the very least see their outlines.

Ben kept silent, getting in close, his black jacket allowing him to blend in. He took a deep breath before stepping out into the light, his focus on the strange boy that stood, ringing a bell, which drew to it all of his attention, "...What in the blue blazes are you...?"
: Re: Gift Games
: Nask September 18, 2013, 01:04:47 PM
Jun felt the compulsion and follows the sound of the bell with seemly no resistance on his part. Follow to the source that the other girl is heading to as well, yet he kept his hand on his weapon to maintain caution. Even when the light is replaced by another light that lit up within this cavern.

It didn't take too long when he saw a rabbit-eared boy, which didn't surprise him much on seeing such a unusual feature. The girl is there as well, which Jun can hear the girl's question that he would've ask as he walk up to them.
: Re: Gift Games
: Akuma Killer September 19, 2013, 01:38:46 AM
*1st person is confusing as fak >.>*
After a while...well, Kotone reached the end by following the light. She sees a boy with a...bell?
"Strange...a boy?"
Whatever she's in, she better listen. She lowers her headphones to show that she'll listen to what he'll say, if he does say anything.

 "so, i take it you're the Rabbit from fathers tales then?" Ciel said quietly as she walked out form behind her corner to the forming group. her curiosity and mild excitement at possibly finding a lead to her father subduing her shyness a little. though she must admit she found it quite odd.. she could have sworn he said the rabbit wore a skirt that never flipped..
: Re: Gift Games
: Kimoto September 20, 2013, 03:32:30 PM
The boy didn't react to anything anyone said or asked. He instead just rang his bell once more, before it disappeared into thin air. He then looked around at the people that had gathered.

"... Welcome you all, from Far and Wide... To our home of Little Garden." He stretched out his arms as he said this. They weren't actually in Little Garden Yet, but in a cavern inside it, but it was close enough.

"You have been invited to stay here, and play in our Gift Games. Where anything can be bet, anything can be won, due to your special talents." And he was going through this quite professionally.

"If any of you would like to go home though... Please say so now."
: Re: Gift Games
: Nask September 20, 2013, 03:58:41 PM
Jun tilts his head at what the boy is saying, but didn't react to it. He readies himself to respond, seemly like he's going to take the offer back home. Truthfully, it's not; what he said next completely averts this action.

"...I'm staying. New opportunities." The red head bluntly answered and reason in a few words with a emotionless tone. It is hard to tell what he's thinking to conclude that answer.
: Re: Gift Games
: Lione Tabuukilla Fortuna September 20, 2013, 04:10:06 PM
The thoughts of the horrors he had seen over years flooded Ben's mind, causing him to shrudder, "Tch..." While he had saved towns, brought sweet justice to those that deserved it, there still was something in his heart he longed for. Maybe here, he could find his answers to the questions he had been asking himself forever.

"I'll stay." he asserted with a nod, "There's something I have to find out, and if years in my world didn't give me an answer, I might just find them here..."
: Re: Gift Games
: Slider Eclipse September 20, 2013, 04:54:23 PM
Ciel nodded still lost in thought. ' sorry little sis.. you'll have to keep things working on your own for a little while.. i'll be sure to bring father home someday..' then her mind brought her back to his tales of this world and left her with one nagging thought she had to bring up.. " err.. you wouldn't happen to be a crossdresser would you?" she asked meekly to the rabbit.
: Re: Gift Games
: EeveeandAbsol September 20, 2013, 05:04:09 PM
Xara looked around at this large group, keeping quiet...

Though the young woman may have looked innocent and shy, but the worn blade she held in her hand spoke different; the truth. Caledfwlch was the Legendary blade she was given by her second soul, the blade used to slay a God, Elithaz, whom sought to control reality and did so until Xara herself stood against him and won... Surely she may be of help, and despite being incredibly powerful, she had much to learn still.

"Well, Xara... It appears we've got a new calling." Terc spoke up, "Huh?" "This is a perfect time to train... These people are strong, but if there's stronger... Well, we might be able to lend a hand?" the young woman nodded silently, considering everything... Andensi, her mother, is immortal and may worry, but no harm is done if Xara is absent for just a while...

... And who knows, maybe Xara would be able to protect and learn from these people, "... I'll stay."
: Re: Gift Games
: Kimoto September 20, 2013, 05:05:40 PM
The rabbit boy stared a Ciel for a second... Before jumping up and kicking her in the side of the head, not hard enough to leave lasting damage.

"... No. I'm a proud Moon Rabbit, why would an Aristocrat of Little Garden Cross Dress?" He was obviously annoyed, when he landed.
: Re: Gift Games
: EeveeandAbsol September 20, 2013, 05:11:47 PM
In Xara's eyes... That was a possibly bad idea.

With a quick hand movement,  she switch the way she held her blade to an informal stance (The back of the blade resting against her forearm) and grabbed the Moon Rabbit behind his neck and held him with her incredible strength and lifted him into the air to prevent him from escaping. You see, in rabbit may have been just playing around or correcting the girl's comment... But to Xara, she viewed it as an attack on an innocent.
: Re: Gift Games
: Slider Eclipse September 20, 2013, 05:15:22 PM
Ciel let loose a loud MEEP before whispering double to herself and ducking under the kick into a scared possition. " i-i'm sorry mr, its just, my father used to tell storys of this place and he always mentioned the rabbit wearing a magic skirt... so i just assumed.." she rambled off in mild worry, not for herself, but that she offended him.
: Re: Gift Games
: Kimoto September 20, 2013, 05:23:53 PM
In less than an instant, the rabbit wasn't in Xara's hands anymore, and was being carried by a girl who seems to have appeared from nowhere. She had long black hair and dark brownish eyes. Her outfit was simple of camouflage boots and shorts, as well as a black tank top and black socks that stopped midway on her thighs. For accessories she had nothing but a whistle around her neck, and black gloves that went halfway to her shoulders.

"How rude!" The girl set the boy down, staring at Xara like she had just finished eating dinner but was refusing to wash her hands.

"You need to learn not to assault people!" Though really she should be saying that to the temperamental rabbit next to her... Who was rubbing his neck.

"... I'll now explain more." He seemed to have moved on though.

"This world... Is called Little Garden. You have been invited to play in what are called Gift Games, hosted by Communities. Gift Games..." The Rabbit was going to keep talking but the girl interrupted.

"Hey hey. Rather than explain, lets just play one! Everyone we are gonna play a gaaaaame! You gotta follow the rules to the letter or ya lose got it? If you win you get a fun prize! If you lose... We'll take one of the things you're carrying in your pockets!" The energetic girl was now smiling, as she got a table from seemingly nowhere, and held up a knife for everyone but the Rabbit.

" but.. i don't have anything in my pockets.. " ciel exclaimed softly
: Re: Gift Games
: Kimoto September 20, 2013, 05:41:43 PM
The girl looked at Ciel, with a weird smirk on her face, before blushing and covering her mouth.

"I'll just take something else then." She had the eyes of a predator when she said that, as the Rabbit sighed.

"Marcia..." He muttered, with a disappointed tone. No sign of stopping her though.
: Re: Gift Games
: EeveeandAbsol September 20, 2013, 06:00:47 PM
Xara remained silent, she stared intently at the two characters... Before the voice of reason spoke up, "Calm down, Kid. Calm... It looks like we'll have to play this game. Might owe an apology or two later." she reluctantly sighed, lowering down her guard as her sword disappeared in a flash of light. "I have no pockets from which to take from." she looked up, her serious tone from before being lowered down to a more calming one.
: Re: Gift Games
: Kimoto September 20, 2013, 06:03:21 PM
The named Marcia still had that look in her eye, seeming even happier after Xara told her that.

"Okay okay~" She snapped her fingers, as a scroll appeared in front of everyone but her in the Rabbit. It basically was the agreement to the play the game. If they win they get a prize, if they lose then the Host, Marcia in this case, can take one item of her choice from each loser.

All that it needed now was each of them to sign the bottoms of the scrolls, a pen provided.

The Game Details were as follows.

Game Name: 52 Pick Up

Rules: One will get a Deck of Cards, and place it on top of their left hand. They will then pick up as many cards as possible using the provided knife, to stab into the cards from above. It is impossible to get the 52nd card without stabbing the hand. No Interfering with another person while they pick up cards.

Winning Condition: Pick up More Cards than the Host.

: Re: Gift Games
: Slider Eclipse September 20, 2013, 06:05:45 PM
Ciel got up from her crouching position, not fully sure what marcia ment by something else and grabbed her copy, making sure to read it carefully so she understands the exact conditions and what she has to do.

" interesting.. if not a little insane.." she commented before signing the scroll.
: Re: Gift Games
: EeveeandAbsol September 20, 2013, 06:14:37 PM
Xara looked at the paper, reading intently and thinking.

"We've got an advantage, Kid..." Xara gave it thought, glancing down at her left hand... Before signing the contract.
: Re: Gift Games
: Nask September 20, 2013, 08:10:43 PM
Jun had pay attention to what's happening, didn't seem to react or defending someone. Instead as it happens right now, the red head read the contract of the game. Taking in the exact ruling within the contract and analyze the knife that they will be provided for game, then his left hand. After doing all of those things, he signs the contract in print.
: Re: Gift Games
: Lione Tabuukilla Fortuna September 20, 2013, 10:16:29 PM
Benjamin paused, weighing the risk and rewards. He knew he was an expert in knife usage, his hand also one of the steadiest due to his marksmanship and sword fighting skills. However, he was cautious about signing the contract impulsively. Losing could mean having his music player taken away, or worse, one of his weapons. He then took the time to inspect the knife, ensuring it was not collapsable or a trick knife in anyway.

"I would first like to ask," he said after much thought, "If I were to hypothetically lose, what item specifically would you take from me? And also, is it possible to respectfully decline this challenge?"
: Re: Gift Games
: Kimoto September 20, 2013, 10:20:40 PM
"If you lose I'll just take something fairly unimportant most likely! Like a sock! And if you don't wanna play, just hang back and watch the others." Marcia was happy since 3 people already signed to play.

As a side note, the knives were only long enough to hold all 52 Cards, and seemed to be slotted so the cards would get hooked on after stabbing through, but wouldn't come back off without ripping the card.

The Rabbit was getting ready for the game as well.
: Re: Gift Games
: Lione Tabuukilla Fortuna September 20, 2013, 10:29:26 PM
Benjamin narrowed his eyes. Most likely, he realized, left a very small window for someone unexpected to happen. And judging by his adventures, the least likely always happened. However... A prize was on the line, and perhaps a way to recover his supplies would lie there.

After a few minutes of pondering, he decided that a small stab wound was well worth the risk. He readied his sword hand, as he could rely on his powers in a melee fight, for the possibility of having it stabbed. His gun hand twitched, ready for a smooth and controlled motion. He took one last look at the rules, confirming there was no rule against stabbing your hand right off the bat. Nodding, he signed his name on the contract, "Here goes nothing..."
: Re: Gift Games
: Kimoto September 21, 2013, 09:12:06 AM
Marcia smiled as the scrolls disappeared from their hands, and instead a deck of 52 cards appeared in it's place, as she placed 4 knives on the table, one for each of them.

"Alright... All of you, get to picking up." As she said that, she lined up her own deck as well, preparing to stab into it.
: Re: Gift Games
: EeveeandAbsol September 21, 2013, 09:56:23 AM
"Don't show fear, Kid." Xara nodded, placing her hand down and the deck of cards in the right spot...

She inhaled lightly, though this really took all of 5 seconds in total in her mind time seemed to slow down a bit. She stared down intently at the knife and then the deck of cards, and without much thought, "..." 52 cards had been picked up correctly. Though blood was leaking out of her hand.
: Re: Gift Games
: Nask September 21, 2013, 12:42:24 PM
Jun place his hand down on the table and then the deck atop of it, which it is positioned slightly differently. As soon as he's done, the red head grab his knife and stab his deck through 52 cards, pickup is successful. Leaving a minor injury that's not on the back of hand, bleeding. The contract didn't specify location on the areas of the hand.

To be specific on the exact method, Jun had placed the deck on his fingers. Underneath the deck, he leaves a opening between his middle and ring fingers. Enough for the knife to go between them after pierce through the deck of cards and gave the table a tiny poke from the knife. Right now, the 52 deck of cards collectively picked up by provided knife and the knife's hook left a minor wound in the area between the middle finger and the ring finger. Along with a tear in the same area on his glove.
: Re: Gift Games
: Lione Tabuukilla Fortuna September 21, 2013, 12:52:52 PM
Ben realized there were always multiple ways of doing a task, and this was no exception. However, he understood what the game was supposed to be like, and thusly complied by putting the middle of the deck on his left hand, palm down.

His right hand grasped the knife, getting a feel for its weight and the amount of force it might take to stab through the cards. Pausing, he checked the knife, and upon realizing its length, saw that it would inflict on him a minor stab wound at worst, the best being nothing but a small break in the skin. With that, he plunged down the knife as if it was the neck of his foe, feeling a small amount of pain shoot through his hand. He sighed in relief as he checked all fifty two cards had been skewered, finding only a small cut that had little chance of bleeding, "Nothing but a scratch."
: Re: Gift Games
: Slider Eclipse September 21, 2013, 03:01:10 PM
Ciel took her dagger in hand and looked to her deck of cards. closing her eyes she stabbed.. and pulled up only 51, the 52nd had a hole in it, but wasn't caught on the dagger from her timidness.
: Re: Gift Games
: Kimoto September 21, 2013, 03:22:27 PM
Marcia smiled after watching them all, and smiled while lining up her cards... Before the Rabbit interrupted before she took her stab.

"Marcia..." He glared at her, as her smile seemed to freeze. In reality, the only way to win was to pick up more cards than her, which was impossible without tampering with her deck before she took her stab. By the rules of the Gift Games this was allowed and all, but was still considered a bit dirty.

"D-Don't glare at me like that..." She turned away, while stabbing down, sinking her knife deep into the cards... And once finished, she pulled up the knife, it revealed all 52 cards, and a stab hole in the back of her hand that was bleeding, as some skin was torn off that wasn't from it... Because it got stuck with the 52nd card.

"... Well. I win." The Geass Scroll appeared, showing the Host as the winner, As Marcia thought about what she wanted, before giving in to The Rabbit's piercing glare.

"H-Here... For being brave and playing, I'll give you the prizes anyway..." She muttered, as she held out a stack of green T-Shirts, that said 'Little Garden - Abnormal Alliance' on them, for each person to take from.
: Re: Gift Games
: Slider Eclipse September 21, 2013, 03:32:39 PM
Ciel blinked in confusion. " huh, but we lost.." she said as the shirt fell on her head..  so far things were not anything like she expected.
: Re: Gift Games
: Nask September 21, 2013, 03:42:43 PM
Jun blinks at what just happen between the woman named Marcia and the Rabbit, despite the host won this game. Either way, he accepted the shirt. "...Abnormal Alliance?" The red head half-elf blankly recited the words on the shirt, this cause him to tilt his head. Staring at the shirt like it was a foreign object.
: Re: Gift Games
: Lione Tabuukilla Fortuna September 21, 2013, 04:19:19 PM
Damn, Benjamin growled mentally, Should've seen that one coming... Note to self, pay more attention to the wording of these things and DO NOT take any bets unless wording is specific and clear. I can not afford to take chances.

He was a bit sore in how the prize wouldn't be a chance to recover his supplies (despite the fact he lost), which he knew he was going to need, that everyone here would eventually need. He also knew that she hadn't taken anything from them yet, which meant that the potential to lose something essential was still there. However, he was prepared to negotiate in the event something like that happened.

Taking another look at the T-shirt, he wondered what it meant, "Abnormal Alliance, huh?" He blinked before realizing that everyone had these shirts, meaning that there was a possibility they would have to travel together. While there were strength in numbers, that only went as far as when there were supplies... supplies they most definitely did not have. He silently hoped that there would be a place they could resupply soon... and also to get out of this damn cave.

Xara took out the knife, hearing that she'd lost but wouldn't lose anything in the process. "Should've... Fuck, I walked ya into that one, Kid..." "It's okay, Terc..." she said out loud, but to the others it... Definitely come out as her talking to herself, which is weird. Either way, she held onto the shirt and looked up at Marcia and the Moon Rabbit.
: Re: Gift Games
: Kimoto September 21, 2013, 05:21:21 PM
Marcia scratched her cheek, as she looked them over, while the Rabbit nodded. She then looked happy, as she looked them over, holding the scroll which was lighting up, to enforce her ability to collect her sides of the bet.

"Okay... I got it." Marcia had a happy look on her face, as she pointed at them one by one, starting with Jun, to Benjamin, then to Ciel and Xara.

"You can hand them over voluntarily or I'll force them out of you with the Geass Scroll, which enforces the bet. I want... Your Cloak, Your Hat, And you two... Since you have no pockets, and I don't see anything I want from your outfits, I'll take your panties." She said that in all seriousness, with a happy look on her face.

And meanwhile the Rabbit looked like he was about to cry from seeing this.

: Nask September 21, 2013, 06:04:00 PM
The half-elf shrugs before he folds the green shirt up and hold it with one hand. Then he voluntarily takes off his cloak and hands them over to Marcia. Revealing that he just wear a worn-out, long sleeved red shirt and grey camouflage pants. There's also a holster strap over shirt, where it holds what looked to be a gun. The holster that covers it, makes it difficult to tell what exact model.

Other than that, Jun wasn't affected by the defeat overall due to his act of acceptance to the loss.

upon hearing what she would lose she blushed so heavily that you could have sworn that it bathed the cavern in a red glow. " Y-You can't be Serious?!" she stuttered, shifting uncomfortably in place
: Re: Gift Games
: Kimoto September 21, 2013, 07:08:42 PM
"I am very serious." Marcia replied to Ciel with a smile, holding up the Geass Scroll as a threat while taking and putting on Jun's Cloak.
: Re: Gift Games
: Slider Eclipse September 21, 2013, 08:41:32 PM
somehow, ciel's blush grew even brighter.. " o-ok.. just let me go behind that wall.. " she muttered before running around a corner to hide from everyone else as she did the deed.. she then came back in hdd mode.. " here.." she stated bluntly before throwing the sky blue panties at the pervert.
: Re: Gift Games
: EeveeandAbsol September 21, 2013, 08:46:22 PM
Xara summoned the Meteor Chains, a golden flash revealed the steel-like links wrapped securely around her torso and gray outfit. Each end of the chain continued to wrap around her arms as she held the loose ends in her hands, though she had lost... Her face alone could've said she wasn't going to bow to such humiliation so easily, "..."

"Nice bluff, Kid... I figure these guys don't know who you are, a Legendary Hero. "

: Lione Tabuukilla Fortuna September 21, 2013, 09:04:10 PM
Benjamin sighed, taking off his hat. "Please take good care of it. This hat and I have been through a lot... I'd hate for it to be abused any more." His unkempt hair was unleashed with every step, having been tucked under the hat for who knows how long. As he extended an arm to hand over the hat, he mumbled "May this hat give you all the luck it has for me. They called me "Holy Hat" for a reason, after all.

With that, he handed over the hat before stepping back, thankful that he hadn't been forced to give up his revolver at the very least.
: Re: Gift Games
: Kimoto September 21, 2013, 09:10:20 PM
Marcia took the hat, putting it on her head, then caught the underwear, and shove it in her pocket, before sighing while looking at Xara. She then held up the Geass Scroll, as it lit up and disappeared, showing that she had collected all her prized.

Then just to taunt Xara, she held up her hands... Stretching out the underwear Xara had been wearing under her skirt a second ago, which was taken by the Geass Scroll since it was enforcing her item choice for winning the game.

"If you want your stuff back, we could always play another game~" Marcia obviously had another one in mine, though it'd probably help get their stuff back...
: Re: Gift Games
: Lione Tabuukilla Fortuna September 21, 2013, 09:17:48 PM
Ben's instincts screamed to say "Hell NO!" to the next game. He has trusted her for even a short while, which proved to be a mistake. To him, the girl should be put on the same threat level as a con artist, and all deals made with her would have to be explicit and thought about twice over. Besides, all he lost was his hat, which he had been meaning to replace, and while it had plenty of sentimental value, his natural survivalist kicked aside those feelings.

However, he knew he'd have to be very cautious. The girl was a troublemaker, and obviously enjoyed teasing others. And with someone with little to possibly lose... Well, that was a dangeeous combination on its own. "Unless you're willing to have a fair game, then I doubt I'll be playing for my hat."
: Re: Gift Games
: Nask September 21, 2013, 10:28:49 PM
Jun looks thoughtful for the moment upon seeing the new appearances that the girl and the woman have. He seemed to look for something, before sigh as he looks back to Marcia. Didn't seem to be surprised much if there's any from him toward the two girls. Instead, he respond to one of their guides.

"...One is enough for now on this place works." Jun said, crossing his arms. Seems like he don't need the cloak since it's just another piece of clothing.
: Re: Gift Games
: EeveeandAbsol September 22, 2013, 11:22:27 AM
Xara glared at Marcia with a stern face... Her body starting to let out an ominous purple fume from her body, the bladed chains surrounding her turned completely black and also started to release the same fume. But for all the people around her felt was the presence of it, the fumes being odorless but at the same time a feeling of uneasiness and anguish engrossed the entire cavern.

The only thing that didn't seem to be intimidating was her face, not the fact it looked a little cute while trying to look stern, but the fact she was blushing like a bride. Oddly enough though, the second soul in this hero's body was silent.
: Re: Gift Games
: Kimoto September 22, 2013, 12:50:22 PM
"Now now... Don't worry, I'm proposing something much simpler here. And I'll give them back even if you lose. How's that?" Marcia offered, as the Rabbit couldn't believe it... Either she had an ulterior motive... Or she loved games.

"The game is Rock Paper Scissors. One round, just gotta beat me. That's all. You win you get your stuff and I'll throw in a favor. I'll make a request though if I win. Don't worry, nothing weird, just want you guys to check out my community."
: Re: Gift Games
: Lione Tabuukilla Fortuna September 22, 2013, 01:05:55 PM
Ben paused again, thinking of every possibility. He utilized his gift of Tarot Mimicry to mimic the Justice Arcana, to get a better sense of righteousness and fairness, finding the deal to be simple enough. "So what you're saying is we play a game of chance. Should one of us win, we get our respective belongings back. However, upon losing, we have to check out your community?"

There definitely was an air of mystery and paranoia, as Ben wondered what sort of community it would be. He certainly didn't have any long term plans, and it couldn't hurt to check out how things operated around here. Switching to mimicing the Fortune Arcana, which he still wasn't sure if it actually did boost his luck, but it seemed like it had before,"I have no objections should we play a fair game. No mind reading should you have it, or anything of the sort. Just a clean and fair game of pure chance."
: Re: Gift Games
: Kimoto September 22, 2013, 01:09:36 PM
"... Well less check... And more of join. After all, that's why I had the Rabbit call you all here. I am Marcia F. Silver, Leader of the Abnormal Alliance. A Mid-Sized Guild around here!" She proudly declared that... Before the Rabbit revealed why she was going to make them join if they lost.

"She's lying. Our Guild definitely is Mid-Sized, but we are the last two members. Everyone else left to join a larger one."
: Re: Gift Games
: Nask September 22, 2013, 01:20:13 PM
"...How did that happen exactly?" Jun spoke up with a question to Marcia and the rabbit, cutting in before anyone else. Seem to kept calm despite the uneasiness that hangs in the air of the cavern. He kept his eyes onto them before continuing, "Is it involve conflict from the inside? Or was it outside?"
: Re: Gift Games
: Kimoto September 22, 2013, 01:51:41 PM
Marcia scratched her cheek as the rabbit spoke up. Neither of them seemed bothered, but Marcia kept glancing over at Xara.

"Well... Actually it was just because they didn't like how Marcia refused to use her right as a... Oh right did we explain what Communities are to you yet?" The Rabbit seemed to change the subject, while Marcia kept her hands close together, as if preparing to do something.
: Re: Gift Games
: EeveeandAbsol September 22, 2013, 01:56:08 PM
Xara held down her Chains... They vanished and she stepped back from the crowd, "I think it'll be best to not join the game..." she said quietly, the purple fumes vanishing.
: Re: Gift Games
: Lione Tabuukilla Fortuna September 22, 2013, 02:36:17 PM
A pang of guilt and nostalgia filled Ben, who had seen plenty of ruined towns, with a family or two futily trying to survive. Ben would often take those people and bring them to a better town where they could live and survive. He also had a policy of never leaving anybody behind, which his righteous self screamed for him to do, "I would like to hear about these communities... And how the story of yours. Everyone and everything has a story, after all."
: Re: Gift Games
: Slider Eclipse September 22, 2013, 03:22:47 PM
Ciel nodded in agreement, after all she couldn't see any loopholes in the rules so far, and she really needed her underwear back before she returned to normal.
: Re: Gift Games
: Kimoto September 22, 2013, 03:30:15 PM
Marcia just snapped, as the Geass Scroll appeared in front of Ciel, since she was the only one to really actually agree to play.

Game: Rock Paper Scissors
Rules: Play Rock Paper Scissors
Winning Condition: Beat the Host in One Game of Rock Paper Scissors

Prizes: One Item and One Request From the Loser

Meanwhile the Rabbit kept explaining.

"A Community is like a group of people who play games. We team up for them, share benefits, and joining one gives you a nice place to live usually. We have a large area for ours but few people to maintain it. Water, food, all that. We make it ourselves too. Lots of work if it wasn't for our leader of there but... People left because of her position. She's what's called a... Well some call it Demon Lord since they are cruel usually, but in her Case we just call her a Lord. Lord's can propose a game, and it's a rule... That you can't refuse a Demon Lord's game. She never executed this right though, and opted to play normal Gift Games instead. This made many members mad, and she didn't stop them from leaving because it was their choice in her eyes. So we were reduced to this. Calling up random people to make join our Community..." He seemed fairly upset about itall.
: Re: Gift Games
: Slider Eclipse September 22, 2013, 03:36:31 PM
Ciel read the scroll carefully for a few moments, only finishing and signing just after the rabbit finished his speech.
: Re: Gift Games
: Kimoto September 22, 2013, 03:45:27 PM
Marcia got ready, and once they played the Game she threw out her hand in a fist, making a rock.

Meanwhile the Rabbit drew a visual representation on a black board out of nowhere of people leaving due to Marcia not using her Lord Position.
: Re: Gift Games
: Slider Eclipse September 22, 2013, 03:48:45 PM
ciel threw her hand out as well, calling scissors. " ..." she said.. then started to think that being in normal mode might be less humiliating after this..
: Re: Gift Games
: Nask September 22, 2013, 03:52:11 PM
Jun listened to the Rabbit's speech, seemly more interested in what he is talking about than another round of the game with Marcia. The uneasy feeling from earlier that the red head had felt is gone. He seem to be thoughtful before murmur the line 'Not much different...' as he watches the visual representation... That looks like circles runs away from a large circle with Marcia's name next to it.

"..." He nodded, before responding. "...I see."
: Re: Gift Games
: Kimoto September 22, 2013, 03:54:32 PM
Before Marcia could say anything, she felt a harsh glare, as The Rabbit stopped drawing, and was looking over at them.

"... F-First... Here ya go..." Marcia handed over what she took the first time, shivering from The Rabbit's stare. "I-I'll just take what I want now..." And instead of another item like that, she just plucked a hair from Ciel's head, still shivering, as she then took out all her prizes from the last game, and returned them their previous owner's, while apologizing, with a ridged smile.

"... And that's the gist of it." The Rabbit suddenly seemed to be calm again, as Marcia was taking deep breathes.
: Re: Gift Games
: Slider Eclipse September 22, 2013, 03:56:55 PM
" thank you.." she said.. before going back around the corner with her "prize" and returning back to normal., rubbing her head slightly from the mild pain caused by the hair plucking.
: Re: Gift Games
: Lione Tabuukilla Fortuna September 22, 2013, 04:50:18 PM
"They left because you never imposed your will on them?" Ben raised an eyebrow, "That's stupid, if you ask me. I'd love to know that someone who leads me is at least willing to let people make their choices in life." It was now that he reevaluated his opinion of the girl. Perhaps she tried to play the playful type to draw people in.

He looked at the shirt again and nodded to himself. Part of him wanted to join, perhaps to see if this place would become the place he sought: home. But another part of him wanted to simply move on. He'd have to have a few more details first, "May I ask why you never exercised this right of yours?"
: Re: Gift Games
: EeveeandAbsol September 22, 2013, 06:35:45 PM
Xara stood back, accepting her item back... "... I'll join if I can do for the better..." she murmured, having no questions asked, "That's what I do, from what I can understand... I might've misunderstood you, I'm sorry too..."
: Re: Gift Games
: Kimoto September 22, 2013, 06:57:35 PM
"..." Marcia got silent when Ben asked that question as she put some serious thought into it. She also was saving her demand of Ciel for later usage.

"Well the real reason I never used it... Was cause it's a pain!" She declared easily, as the Rabbit sighed again.

"They won't play seriously if they are forced to play, cause it'll be too risky. Plus then they'll get all desperate and it won't be fun anymore."
: Re: Gift Games
: Lione Tabuukilla Fortuna September 22, 2013, 07:06:28 PM
"I see," Ben said with a nod, "Then I see no reason to object in joining your community then, if what you say is true. Perhaps I'll learn to call it home." He put a hand forward, "I don't believe I've properly introduced myself. My name is Benjamin Fermont, a wanderer of my world," he said, twirling his hat on his spare hand, "I have a few skills in survival, and hope we can get along."
: Re: Gift Games
: Nask September 22, 2013, 07:18:09 PM
Jun glance toward to the others as he put the cloak back on. "...I'm joining this community as well. You two did invited us and we accepted it." He said, before continuing. Following the other man's method of introduction. "...My name is Jun Becote. Just... Jun." He gave a small polite bow to the Rabbit and Marcia before straighten himself, his eyes then averts toward to the girls.
: Re: Gift Games
: Slider Eclipse September 22, 2013, 07:42:19 PM
" i'll join too.. at least, until i find a clue about my fathers whereabouts.. my names Ciel" she said, almost whispering the last part.. before entering hdd form again in front of everyone. " .. Chrono Heart.." she stated tonelessly before returning to normal... she was already beginning to feel a little drained from the lack of share energy.. hopefully they can get a few more members soon...
: Re: Gift Games
: Kimoto September 22, 2013, 07:50:45 PM
Marcia smiled at the four new members, as The Rabbit sighed in relief.

"... Well lets go to the base then! I think you'll like it!" The Rabbit suddenly declared happily, an actual smile appearing on his face for the first time, as he walked with a bit of a hop. Marcia on the other hand waved, before stating she had to go and disappear for the moment, before running off somewhere.
: Re: Gift Games
: Nask September 22, 2013, 09:11:57 PM
Jun then start to follow the Rabbit with silence steps. Taking his first steps to where the rabbit leads to their new base in this world of Little Garden. He seem to pay attention to where the rabbit goes.
: Re: Gift Games
: Lione Tabuukilla Fortuna September 23, 2013, 12:58:32 PM
Benjamin wanted to strike up a conversation with the others, but somewhat lacked the experience in actually beginning a talk. Often he was on the receving end when it came to talking, and he responded to whatever people had to say.

He opened his mouth to speak, but no words came out. Shaking his head and mumbling to himself, he decided to silently follow the rabbit to wherever it was taking them, seeing if there was anything that could be used as a landmark for navigation along the way.
: Re: Gift Games
: EeveeandAbsol September 23, 2013, 01:07:21 PM
Xara waited for all of the others to leave, staying behind for a moment to take a good look at the cavern before following behind.

In the meanwhile though she really took this as an opportunity to speak, without sounding insane to her new teammates, "This is kinda like how we met Erik and the others, Terc..." she smiled quietly, "Back then you could barely control yourself, now look at ya..." "I know... I hope I can be of use..."
: Re: Gift Games
: Slider Eclipse September 23, 2013, 08:10:01 PM
Ciel blinked for a moment, wondering just where these people came from is seeing her enter hdd didn't bother then in the slightest before realising she was being left behind and running to catch up.
: Re: Gift Games
: Kimoto September 24, 2013, 01:23:19 PM
The Rabbit led the out of the Cavern, right to the front of... What looked a giant white wall with a slight curve.
: Re: Gift Games
: Nask September 24, 2013, 09:48:17 PM
Jun had stared at the surroundings of the landscape while they are following the rabbit. It is as if he haven't seen that many plant life before, especially one that is so green. "...Is this what plant life... was like in the Old World...?" The red head had quietly murmured, yet it can be heard by those who are near him. A hint of about his world.

Then his eyes landed on the giant white wall itself.
: Re: Gift Games
: Lione Tabuukilla Fortuna September 25, 2013, 12:54:51 PM
"Dear God... Green grass... " Benjamin let out a impressed whistle, taking his time while walking, "I heard rumors before... but I never imagined I'd see grass that wasn't burnt nor brown..."

His eyes strained at all the new colors, especially at the bright greens and yellows that seemed to flood his eyesight, a stark contrast to the dark browns and grays of his world.

It wasn't long before he came to the white wall. His shifted his weight in order to sling off his backpack for his climbing gear... which is when he realized he didn't have it anymore, "Damnit, gonna have to get used to that. Gonna miss having everything I had..."
: Re: Gift Games
: EeveeandAbsol September 25, 2013, 01:01:22 PM
Xara was strayed behind the group a little, her wondering eyes seemed to also stray away from what was in front of her to the scenery instead; it reminded her more of her time with Erik's group and walking the plains for the first time, it was beautiful. That is... Until they got to the wall, she glanced around quietly looking for an entrance.
: Re: Gift Games
: Slider Eclipse September 26, 2013, 02:35:01 PM
Ciel was walking calmly behind the others at this point, taking in deep breaths of fresh air. " ahh, i haven't seen nature in years, its so.. refreshing!" she said mostly to herself, not even noticing the wall.
: Re: Gift Games
: Kimoto September 26, 2013, 03:32:26 PM
The Rabbit felt along the wall till he came to a protrusion, and walked to it's side... As there was a large gate style door.

"... Welcome... To Little Garden. Please don't wander off. One of the more... Known Communities on the opposite side has stories about that happening... I still don't believe a Water God can be beat by a simple kid with one kick..." He muttered as he walked into the gate, ready to enter the town.
: Re: Gift Games
: Nask September 26, 2013, 11:34:30 PM
Jun tilts his head at what the rabbit said, before continue to follow the rabbit into town. All he mutter is, "...A Water God...?" His eyes seem to stare up abit, but reflexive enough to know where he's going.
: Re: Gift Games
: EeveeandAbsol September 27, 2013, 07:43:29 AM
Xara nodded obediently to the Rabbit. And having her word on the line the hero just stayed closer to him, this all seemed far too familiar and reminiscent of her past journey which she loved.
: Re: Gift Games
: Lione Tabuukilla Fortuna September 27, 2013, 12:52:44 PM
"Water God, eh?" Ben shook his head, "And some kid kicked it and beat it? Must've been a hell of a kick..." He was a bit sore at being told not to wander off, since even if he had said he'd join, it didn't mean he wouldn't go walk around for a bit. Though if there were gods out there that were willing to fight, it was probably not worth wandering off. While Benjamin had been asked if he was a god or could call upon one, he knew that it was far from the truth, and would never say that he could or was one.

With a resigning nod, he wondered how else to get the itch of his inner wanderer out.

: Re: Gift Games
: Kimoto October 03, 2013, 12:06:56 PM
The Rabbit walked in, to lead them through the city. The city was a mix of old and new. The Architecture seemed modern, well for some, yet a lot of the appliances looked older.

"I hope you're prepared for a long walk. I don't approve of free use of the warp gate, and we live in the third ring." He told them that, following up with the fact the city had 7 rings, and the closer to the middle you are, the more powerful your guild usually was.
: Re: Gift Games
: Lione Tabuukilla Fortuna October 03, 2013, 01:42:44 PM
"Intruiging," Ben commented as he walked, seeing the city, "Nothing like the cities back home, but this one's got a quaint feeling to it. Especially since it doesn't seem to be ridden with crime and mobsters everywhere... That reminds me, is there a shop or someplace nearby where we could possibly stock up on supplies? Being left without anything in case of emergencies isn't really my way of doing things."

He wasn't sure if anyone heard his questions, but he continued to walk, having gotten used to the sort of aches and pains that came from walking for so long, sometimes to the point his feet would end up bleeding a bit, "Also, when you say third ring, is that third from the inside or third from the outside?"
: Re: Gift Games
: Nask October 03, 2013, 03:29:28 PM
Jun didn't seem to mind for a long walk, he glanced at the city and it's locals. Various races out in the open and very lively for whatever business that these beings are doing. "...Very different back where I lived." Then he noticed something. As it felt hotter... "The season here is different also... It's summer here, but... It was Spring back then." Back then referring to his world. "Why's that?"

Although it seem like his question can wait since Ben asked first.
: Re: Gift Games
: EeveeandAbsol October 06, 2013, 02:59:47 PM
Xara glanced around the cityscape, "Oh wow..." she seemed to be enticed, it's actually been awhile since she's been in a modern city.
: Re: Gift Games
: Kimoto October 14, 2013, 03:10:57 PM
The Rabbit kept walking as he answered the questions.

"There are shops but you'll have to earn money. I'm not giving free hand outs, or letting you raid the Community Storage. Don't bother asking Marcia or I'll kick you. Also I'm not sure why the seasons are different, things seem to just work out like that."

As he walked he ignored people calling out to him. It appears they wanted him to host a game various times considering what he was, but he pretended he didn't hear it.
: Re: Gift Games
: Lione Tabuukilla Fortuna October 15, 2013, 04:44:48 PM
Damn, lost most of my stuff... there goes my usual methods of buying and selling, Ben mentally grumbled, "Well, I wasn't planning on raiding anything. I prefer to play the hero rather than the villain. Does wonders for when you need help for once."

Ben ran through his mental list of options, ruling out stealing, raiding, intimidation, or straight up brute force robbery for obtaining supplies. While he wasn't fond of such options, when they were absolutely needed, he did what he did to survive. While he may have been willing to do it before, the previous mention of gods in this world made him think twice about having to be kicked out. Taking on a supposed god in this world alone would be far from his most desired outcome.

This left standard labor as an option of hopefully earning money, something he was used to. Hopefully there wouldn't be any absurd favors, "Well then, what tends to be the main jobs people do around here for money?"
: Re: Gift Games
: Nask October 15, 2013, 04:53:54 PM
Jun had seem to accept the Rabbit's explanation about the seasons, instead he just glance around the sights of the city. Still maintain his pace to keep up with the group and the Rabbit, seemly either listening to the remaining conversation or spacing out. That part is hard to tell. On the other hand, he didn't seem like the type to wander off into the city away from the group anytime soon or bump into someone by accident.
: Re: Gift Games
: Kimoto January 01, 2014, 05:09:29 AM
"Here." The Rabbit smacked a large door as they were finally at the Communities Base, the large doors opening. "The Setup is a bit strange but don't worry about it. The place is all ours since we only have a few members now. If you have any more questions... Ask me and not that stupid Demon Lord." He obviously meant Marcia, who was too kind to even abuse her power to force people to play Gift Games.

"If you want to go out, go in pairs. The Rooms are that way." The little one pointed in a direction. "And like I said, no raiding the storage. If you need something ask, and if, AND ONLY IF, I deem it important enough or reasonable I'll go get it for you."
: Re: Gift Games
: Slider Eclipse January 01, 2014, 04:58:43 PM
Ciel looks around a bit before nodding and heading for her room. sure the base was impressive.. but it was still nothing compared to the Great Processor. besides that she needed time to think.
: Re: Gift Games
: Nask January 01, 2014, 05:24:43 PM
Jun's eyes glance around to take in the design of the community base as they enter, then nods to the Rabbit on his warnings. Then he asks another question to the rabbit and the rest of the group, though he noticed the girl walks off ahead of them. "...What are the sleep arrangements?"
: Re: Gift Games
: EeveeandAbsol January 01, 2014, 06:49:09 PM
Xara also raised a question for rabbit as well, though it was out of curiosity more than anything, "Why should we go in pairs... ? Is there danger?" her voice was fairly quiet, almost like a whisper. But loud enough to be heard.
: Re: Gift Games
: Kimoto January 01, 2014, 08:55:17 PM
"Not really, but if you get into trouble I figure being in pairs will help you deal with it. As for Rooms... Feel free to room up how you want." The Rabbit waved them off, as there was loud clattering sounds from deep in the base that sounded like cookware
: Re: Gift Games
: Lione Tabuukilla Fortuna January 01, 2014, 09:30:32 PM
"Well, that seems reasonable enough," Ben mumbled with a shrug at why they should travel in pairs. Afterwards, he kept silent, mentally rejoicing that for once, he might have somewhere comfortable to sleep, unlike the unforgiving ground and rock he knew from home. At the same time he was also trying to figure out who he might work well with if they were working in pairs, being used to working alone most of the time. He decided to stay silent for now, not used to starting up a partnership, hoping that he would be approached rather than have to approach someone else.

Jun looked to be neutral at the prospect of partnerships, but he nodded at what the rabbit said. Then he looks at the rest of the group.

"Are you two coming?" Jun said to Ben and Xara, then the red head walks off. Based off the direction, he's seem to intend to check out the Rooms where they going to sleep from now on. Would not know what to expect if the conditions of the entrance is this decent.

"..." her question answered, Xara turned to Jun and followed him. She was also wondering which room she should sleep in... Though, another secret concern for her, was food.

From deep down the hall there was a loud shout that sounded something similar to GET OVER HERE, but it wasn't clear.

Ben had silently fell into step behind Jun and Xara, keeping alert for any sudden noises. He paused as a loud sound came through the hallways. It wasn't clear, but it was definitely something, "Did anyone else hear something?"
: Re: Gift Games
: Nask January 05, 2014, 11:45:39 AM
Jun pause upon hearing the loud sound as well. He nodded to Ben, his hand is on his weapon and looks alert. Too alert... Perhaps taking a sign of the loud sound from deep in the hallway as some form of coming danger, likely a trespasser this early?

Instead of continuing toward to the Rooms, he starting to walk toward to where the loud sound coming from.

Xara followed Jun, though with less stealth... Holding her left hand out, a bright flash radiated from her palm - summoning the blade Caledfwlch into it.

: Lione Tabuukilla Fortuna January 05, 2014, 11:58:01 AM
Ben followed their example, drawing his saber into his left hand while deciding to leave his revolver hidden. Moving quickly, he covered the rear flank in case anything came up from behind as everyone investigated the sound.

The source of the noise was... The Kitchen. Where Marcia was surrounded by what looked like large coal shaped objects, plates, and a ton of food, as she ripped up a piece of paper.

"Th-There... Now we can have a welcoming feast..." She was talking to herself, seeming tired, and covered in cooking ingredients.
: Re: Gift Games
: Nask January 06, 2014, 05:01:35 PM
When they reached the source of the sound, which is the kitchen and seeing what lay within. Upon seeing it, Jun seem to relaxes for the moment and noted the results of what Marcia did.

"...Is this the meals that this place usually eat?" He quietly murmured. Difficult to tell if he's confused or curious with that flat tone of his. He didn't move from the spot or move forward to try out the food, just staring at them with what resembles a thoughtful look.
: Re: Gift Games
: EeveeandAbsol January 07, 2014, 12:19:39 PM
"... Oh..." Xara looked over Jun's shoulder, and her mouth started to water. She was staring dead on at the feast. If there was one thing the heroine liked, and from her figure it looked like she needed desperately, was food.

: Lione Tabuukilla Fortuna January 07, 2014, 04:45:11 PM
Ben turned around as the group stopped, peering at the sight over their shoulders. After sheathing his blade, he rubbed his eyes, disbelieving of the sheer amount of food present. He had never seen so much food in his life, not even in the cities. However, he quickly turned his attention to their tired and covered in ingredients hostess, and dropped his voice to a whisper, "Should we perhaps help her? She looks rather tired."

"... Eh?" Marcia noticed the three, since she had been in the room still. "W-Welcome! I decided you have a meal to celebrate you guys coming!... So come on, and try anything you like! Just uh... Avoid the black stuff."

The black charcoal was what she meant, which she was throwing into a trash bag.

"Oh but... Just so you know... You can't open any room doors in the Community. Unless you'd like to play a game I set up here with the food. Don't worry it's just to get the room keys, and you'll play by eating." The bronze skinned girl clarified, while waving her hand.

It was probably obvious by now, she really loved playing Games.
: Re: Gift Games
: EeveeandAbsol January 08, 2014, 06:49:45 PM
Xara glared at the girl, from their first game... She wanted to hurt her. But her stomach soon growled, its loud roar telling her to defeat Marcia in this gift game.

"... I'm hungry. I want to eat..." she stepped forward, "Let's play..."
: Re: Gift Games
: Nask January 08, 2014, 07:24:33 PM
Jun looks at the amount of food on the table, one of them may contain the key. The key to their new bedrooms that they will be staying. From the amount of food that he can see, it would take quite awhile. He takes the step forward to join with Xara, nods to accept this game.
: Re: Gift Games
: Lione Tabuukilla Fortuna January 09, 2014, 01:37:05 PM
Ben looked back at the sheer amount of food, and was once again stunned, hesitating to take a step forward to join the other two. He then shook his head furiously, trying to come back to his senses, knowing it wouldn't serve him any good to panic. As he took a slow, calming breath, he stepped forward with a small shrug, "I'm in."
: Re: Gift Games
: Kimoto January 09, 2014, 05:46:22 PM
"Oh and it's not a Gift Game. Just a normal game. I hid the keys in the food so whichever keys you find are yours to keep." Marcia cleared that up.

"Feel free to start eating. It's just a bit of fun." Though the Lord seemed fairly happy they were playing along with her game this time, as she ate some of the ingredients that had been stuck to her.
: Re: Gift Games
: Nask January 13, 2014, 12:04:27 AM
Jun nods to Marcia in some form of understanding. He looks at where to start from and goes to one of the prepared plates. Then start eating... well. More like taste one piece  of the meat on the bone, which it caused him to pause for the moment. Stares at the food. Before continues to start eating like nothing happen, keeping his pace slow to avoid the possibility of swallowing the key.

Aside from that moment of pause, the food is normal for him.

"Ah," Ben mumbled, looking at the food, "So the keys are in the food... this is going to be tricky if we want to be efficient. Well, might as well get started." He closed his eyes and pointed around, before opening them and reaching for the first thing he saw his finger point at. He didn't really know what it was, but decided to take it regardless. It did remind him of a chicken from back home. "I hope that I don't find out that I happen to be allergic, if anything, to the smallest thing the hard way," he said, before slowly eating the food, hoping not to accidentally swallow the key.

"Well... Kid, time to eat. You'll need those, uh... Energy." Terc spoke up, "And a bed too..." unlike the other two, Xara not only needed much more food than the average person to function, but she also was oddly very skinny.

And if anyone could guess, she sat down and immediately started devouring anything in her reach, eating like a  hungry lion as she bit, torn, chewed, and swallowed... That is, until she bit down on a  key. Hard - the young heroine spat out the metal object; as well as the halves of all four incisor teeth. Hand over her mouth as blood started to seep through her lips and fingers. And all this lady did was make a painful grunt and wince at it.

: Kimoto January 31, 2014, 02:39:26 AM
The Lord stared at Xara for a moment...

"O-Oh god! Ju-Just hold on I'll get one of the healing gifts!" She seemed to start to freak out as she ran over to a cabinet.
: Re: Gift Games
: Nask February 01, 2014, 05:41:37 PM
Jun just paused eating when Marcia panics, he glanced over to the direction of the disturbance. Seeing Xara's bleeding mouth and the ripped incisor teeth stuck on her key didn't seem to get a reaction out of the red head like the others would have. Just plain staring and swallow the food he was chewing moments before, since he haven't found the key yet.
: Re: Gift Games
: EeveeandAbsol February 02, 2014, 10:37:58 AM
The woman suddenly opened her mouth, mouth wide open as she winced in pain, gripping the table as she ducked her head down... Anyone watching could visibly see the grotesque site; in a matter or seconds, new incisors grew in to replace the older ones, the half-broken teeth in her mouth fell out like the ones from the key to make way for the new set of teeth... She finished off by just spitting out blood into a napkin and looked up, "... Sorry."
: Re: Gift Games
: Lione Tabuukilla Fortuna February 02, 2014, 04:28:54 PM
"Sweet Thanatos," Ben mumbled, trying to contain his surprise as Xara spat into the napkin, "I uh... no offense, though. I just... have never seen someone do that before." He was a little more shaken than he appeared, not noticing that he was cutting across the handle of a metallic key in the food he was eating. Trying to remain casual, he quickly resumed to eating his food while keeping eye contact with everyone, but was still distracted, not noticing the key he was still cutting across.
: Re: Gift Games
: Nask February 03, 2014, 01:05:36 AM
Jun blinks at Xara's replacement of teeth, did not seem to be disturbed by it either. "It is fine." He said, before goes back to eating his food. Not even commenting about how Xara replace her incisors.

Soon he found the key when he tried out the soup, only to heard something metallic when the spoon comes in. Thus taking it out with the use of the spoon. He had wrapped it around with a napkin to dry and able to hold it after found out that it is still hot due to the soup. Now waiting for it to cool off and dry.

: Lione Tabuukilla Fortuna February 03, 2014, 08:41:49 AM
Ben grimaced slightly at realizing he was the only one who hadn't yet found a key... before looking down while wondering why whatever pie-looking food he was eating was so hard to cut through. Noticing the key, he pulled it out nonchalantly and set his food aside, taking a napkin and beginning to clean it off.
: Re: Gift Games
: EeveeandAbsol February 03, 2014, 09:07:44 AM
"... You would be surprised from what else I can do..." Xara looked up at Ben before looking back own at her foo... She took the key and pocketed it, and went back to scarfing down her meal. Being a bit more cautious this time - not wanting to lose her teeth twice in one night.
: Re: Gift Games
: Lione Tabuukilla Fortuna February 04, 2014, 01:36:10 PM
"Ah," Ben let out a small grin, "It seems this world is already much more interesting than where I came from." With that, he took off his hat before carefully laying the key on his hair, then pulled his hat down again to keep it there. After that, he silently resumed eating his food.
: Re: Gift Games
: Kimoto March 04, 2014, 03:52:17 AM
Marcia stared at Xara, before shaking her head.

"Ri-Right... Everyone found a key so I'll let you choose rooms... If anyone wants to choose a roommate please do so now..." She seemed a bit shaken, obviously not having seen many self-healing gifts like that.
: Re: Gift Games
: EeveeandAbsol March 04, 2014, 01:05:47 PM
"I'm fine with sleeping alone." Xara spoke up between shoveling into her mouth, chewing, and swallowing.

What was even more odd about this woman was the amount of food she ate, yet was still incredibly skinny for a full grown woman.
: Re: Gift Games
: Nask March 05, 2014, 11:37:01 AM
The red head finished eating, no longer hungry. He then picks up the napkin covered key and unwrapped, intending to pocket it.

"I do not mind having... Roommates." Jun made his input in the meantime. He had paused on the last sentence, trying to think of what word to look for. He looks at the others, "Anything is fine."

It seems like Jun is fine either way, alone or roommate.
: Re: Gift Games
: Lione Tabuukilla Fortuna March 05, 2014, 01:44:00 PM
Ben shrugged as he polished off his plate, "Not exactly used to sharing my space but if need be I'm willing to share."
: Re: Gift Games
: Kimoto March 10, 2014, 05:18:11 AM
"... Well I meant it more of... As so you don't get lonely or... Well whatever. Go choose your room" Marcia seemed a bit disappointed with them, as she herself got up to go to her own room.

Though she did forget to tell them where that was. As long as no one tried to pick the room with the only completely plain wooden door, things would be fine.
