Intro Log: Off my chest

Who: New arrivals and everyone else!
What: The intro log for April.
Where: The colosseum and all around the city.
When: April 10th-13th
Warnings: Newbies, explosions, and things that are definitely treasure chests and not evil monsters out to get you.

Welcome to your first day in Hadriel! Enjoy your surroundings, meet your fellow travelers, and be sure to start exploring so you can collect as much loot as possible!

On the ground around you may notice bang snaps, scattered haphazardly. Try not to step on any of them, or you might burn your feet! Feel free to gather them up and use these baby fireworks however you see fit; there are dozens strewn about on the ground. Popping them will emit clouds of smoke of various colors, and... well, not much else.

Is there anything else lurking around? Glad you asked! If you look around, you may find a few innocent-looking treasure chests. Which you know, normally means free loot- except, in Hadriel, nothing is quite the way it's advertised of course and the chests are actually dangerous mimics. Mimics- often disguised as treasure chests- are monsters with surprisingly quick movements and gaping maws filled with teeth. They exist to try and fool an unlucky traveler into thinking they've gotten something good... only to lunge at them in their moment of triumph and prove that life is actually terrible and nothing comes for free.

Good luck!

Once you've managed your daring escape from the colosseum, feel free to go explore the rest of the city! Find a house, find a new monster, or simply scavenge for supplies. Good luck, and enjoy your stay in Hadriel!

[Nick just happened to be passing by - out for a walk through the shops for supplies, on her own because it's been a few weeks since the last wendigo sighting so it's probably fine.

It's not that she's inherently nosy, or prone to starting conversations with strangers. But a grey-haired kid was unusual enough to catch her notice, so she stopped and shifted the makeshift backpack on her shoulder, giving the spire a cursory glance before speaking.]

Some people do. Some people don't.

[And, to quote a fairly famous movie, she pointed to her left with her right hand and to the right with her left and concluded with a smirk:] Some people do go both ways.

[ It was clear from the blank look on his face, that he very clearly did not get the reference. He gave her an apologetic look after a moment, reaching back to scratch absently at the back of his neck. ]

Ah... okay?
bekommen: (and now the old ways don't seem true.)

[Color Nick thoroughly unimpressed.]

What, you've seriously never seen The Wizard of Oz?
linefacingforever: (Oh really...?)

[personal profile] linefacingforever 2016-04-17 07:07 pm (UTC)(link)
Oh... yes, I've seen that animation.

[ A long time ago... it was a bit dated for him. ]
bekommen: (mad bull lost its way.)

[personal profile] bekommen 2016-04-18 09:22 pm (UTC)(link)
Nah, dude, not a cartoon - it's a movie. A really old one.
linefacingforever: (Oh really...?)

[personal profile] linefacingforever 2016-04-19 02:26 am (UTC)(link)
Sorry... I've only seen an anime, when I was really young.

[She looks singularly unimpressed.]

Well, I'd say you should check it out sometime, but we're not exactly flush with movie rental places here.
linefacingforever: (But this isn't my fault...)

[personal profile] linefacingforever 2016-04-19 04:01 pm (UTC)(link)
[ Why does he feel like he should be apologizing right now? ]

[Her face scrunches up in something like confusion.]

For what? Not seeing an old movie? Kid, I hate to break it to you, but some of the people here've never even heard of TV, or electricity, for that matter.

linefacingforever: (Yosuke what are you doing?)

[personal profile] linefacingforever 2016-04-19 11:35 pm (UTC)(link)
That's hard to believe.

[ Then again, so was falling into a TV, but that was beside the point. ]

[ He hesitated a moment, before offering his hand. ]

Yu Narukami. I just arrived.
bekommen: (gimme shelter.)

[Nick just. Stared for a moment, eyebrows raised. Seriously, who does that whole handshake thing, other than old dudes in suits?

Well ... OK, it was weird, but she'd go along with it, because why not. She took his hand, giving a quick, unpracticed shake.]

Nick Rivenna, been here a while. Your name is seriously Yu?
linefacingforever: (Oh um... hunh.)

[personal profile] linefacingforever 2016-04-20 04:02 pm (UTC)(link)
[ ...what was that reaction for? What did he do wrong now? ]

bekommen: (mad bull lost its way.)

[personal profile] bekommen 2016-04-21 10:22 pm (UTC)(link)
Do your parents hate you or something?

[Surely no one would name their child Yu.]
linefacingforever: (Rise's half naked again...)

[personal profile] linefacingforever 2016-04-21 10:40 pm (UTC)(link)

[ Ouch. Way to hit a sore point. ]

...I'm fairly certain they don't.
bekommen: (now you've made an offer.)

[personal profile] bekommen 2016-04-22 06:36 pm (UTC)(link)
Really? Did they just like, not think ahead? I mean, don't you get tired of hearing hey Yu?
linefacingforever: (But this isn't my fault...)

[personal profile] linefacingforever 2016-04-22 10:14 pm (UTC)(link)
Not... really?

[ Mostly because that wasn't how his language worked, but he had a feeling telling her as much wouldn't help him. ]

[What a weird kid. Well, he's not her problem. Nick shrugs.]

All right, man, if you say so.
