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!

► This log covers April 10th-13th.

[Nick made good on her vow to never drink again for like a whole three days after recovering from the hangover from hell - so of course she's back at the bar, though drinking with a good measure more restraint than she had during Delight's big city-wide party.

To answer the question posed to her, she makes a quiet scoffing noise through her teeth and levels a sarcastic side-eye at Dean.]


Dude, this place has only been here for like, two weeks. Either nobody's a regular or everyone is.

[She takes a sip of her drink - whiskey, straight up - and continues:]

You must be new here.
kickingand: (pic#10177715)

all the letters!

[personal profile] kickingand 2016-04-12 02:38 am (UTC)(link)
[ Oh. Okay. That's.. interesting. A bar only being around for two weeks seems somehow strange, as if they pop out of the ground fully formed and having existed for vast years on end. Dean is too well acquainted with the grit of truckstop bars and those things? Have always been around for forever.

But alright fine, he finally offers up a singular nod, bowing his head towards his own glass.
]

Everybody's gotta be that new guy at least once in their life.
bekommen: (gimme shelter.)

[personal profile] bekommen 2016-04-12 02:53 am (UTC)(link)
[Nick almost-laughs at that, except it's not really funny, is it.]

Sucks for you that you get to be the new guy here, I guess. Welcome to Monstercave City - population: you.

[personal profile] kickingand 2016-04-12 03:30 am (UTC)(link)
[ It's.... sort of funny? Maybe?

Okay, no- no it isn't. But Dean still forces something that's half smile, half grimace. Just for the sake of argument. And because her comment is both worrisome and amusing.
]

I think that's where i've been living my whole life.
bekommen: (i can't get no satisfaction.)

[personal profile] bekommen 2016-04-12 04:39 am (UTC)(link)
[OK, that gets a full-on eyeroll from Nick, and she turns in her chair to face him, like she can't believe she's actually having this conversation.]

If you've lived here your whole life, you wouldn't exactly be the new guy, would you?

[Duh. That's just common sense.]
kickingand: (pic#10144540)

[personal profile] kickingand 2016-04-12 08:33 pm (UTC)(link)
[ OH JFC do not give him that look. Dean has such a low tolerance for these kinds of things, especially considering he's just as much of a sarcastic asshole about life in general. He all but heaves a sigh, cocking an eyebrow tiredly. ]

I wouldn't be asking around like a nerd at prom either, but here I am.
bekommen: (tip top ready for the rocket.)

[personal profile] bekommen 2016-04-15 12:08 am (UTC)(link)
[A slow, smug grin slides across her face.]

Nerds don't go to prom. Everyone knows that.

[Again - DUH.]

Not unless they're getting their revenge.

[ Come on have you never watched a terrible 80s movie. ]
bekommen: (come laugh get sick.)

[personal profile] bekommen 2016-04-15 04:00 pm (UTC)(link)
[Oh, she totally has. And she's definitely amused that Dean seems to be speaking her language, evident in the way her smile widens as she gives him an acknowledging nod.]

Prom's for losers anyway. I didn't go either. Don't feel like I missed a single damn thing.

[ Oh well hey okay, he's making some headway here. He thought he was doing it all wrong, but apparently not, at least he's made himself one buddy who has the same shady ass sense of humor that he does. ]

You and me both. I had better shit to do for most of highschool, actually.
bekommen: (i can't get no satisfaction.)

[personal profile] bekommen 2016-04-17 04:17 pm (UTC)(link)
No shit, dude. [She takes a quick sip of her drink, nodding.] I mean, what the fuck am I gonna use shit like quadratic equations for in the real world? Doesn't help me balance out the register at the end of the night, and it sure as hell doesn't do anything for fighting off monsters - if, you know, you consider this hellhole "the real world."

[And yep, she does the actual finger quotes around "the real world," rolling her eyes in an exaggerated fashion.]
kickingand: (pic#10144565)

[personal profile] kickingand 2016-04-19 02:17 am (UTC)(link)
[ Except if it is full of monsters, then it is everything the real world might be back home. But he's not going that far quite yet. ]

Tell me about it. Pretty sure the only thing I learned is that cafeteria foods shitter than what they sell at the gas station. And the crap they make you read? Worse'n kindling.
bekommen: (now you've made an offer.)

[personal profile] bekommen 2016-04-19 02:58 am (UTC)(link)
I know, right? Like - Romeo and Juliet? Yawnsville.

[She fake-yawns to emphasize her point.]

I didn't actually read it, though - I cheated. I watched the movie.

[personal profile] kickingand 2016-04-19 03:41 pm (UTC)(link)
Hell, I didn't even try that hard. And aren't there- I don't know, twenty versions of that shitshow?

[ It's not like Dean has any right to judge what with Dr. Sexy... ]
bekommen: (come over come quick.)

[personal profile] bekommen 2016-04-19 03:52 pm (UTC)(link)
Pfft, probably - it's old as shit. Believe me, I woulda skipped out entirely if it'd been up to me. I had this friend who was just determined I was gonna pass and graduate. He had a tape of the loud, crazy movie from the '90s - you know, all the guns and loud music and shit. "Come on, Nick," he said, "at least watch the movie, it's close enough you'll be able to answer the test."

[She laughs, but there's a note of darkness behind it as she raises the glass to her lips.]

[personal profile] kickingand 2016-04-22 06:40 pm (UTC)(link)
Hey, that's better than- what's that shit, those outta bounds "notes" books- [ you can most definitely hear the air quotes here ] the ones for idiots. Make you read a whole other book just because you don't get the first one they gave you.
bekommen: (i can't get no satisfaction.)

[personal profile] bekommen 2016-04-22 06:48 pm (UTC)(link)
Yeah, that makes total sense.

[Rolling her eyes again.]

Like if you just read more that's gonna make you smarter or something. Sounds totally reasonable.

[Not.]

Anyway - high school sucked. End of story. Don't gotta worry about that shit here, at least.
kickingand: (pic#10106325)

[personal profile] kickingand 2016-04-22 06:57 pm (UTC)(link)
[ Pretty much he is in full agreement here. 100% ]

Yeah, because school'd be a top priority the second I ended up in an alternate universe. Right after making sure all my shit's where it's supposed to be.
bekommen: (come over come quick.)

[personal profile] bekommen 2016-04-22 07:21 pm (UTC)(link)
Pal, I gotta tell ya - you are gonna shit yourself over this place. Nothing is what or where it should be. I mean, we're underground, for starters.
kickingand: (pic#10134923)

[personal profile] kickingand 2016-04-22 07:43 pm (UTC)(link)
Oookay- and wait wait, don't tell me- we don't ever get to go back above ground. Stuck down here like rats without a goddamn wheel?
bekommen: (tip top ready for the rocket.)

[personal profile] bekommen 2016-04-22 09:39 pm (UTC)(link)
[She laughs behind the half-full glass as she finishes a swallow of her drink.]

Got it in one. And as a bonus, these assholes running the place get off on our feelings.

[She sets the glass down and wiggles her fingers, jazz hands-style.]

As an extra bonus, there's all kinds of fucked-up monsters running around, trying to kill you. Oh, and a word of free advice - you might wanna skip eating anything with meat in it. Someone thought it would be hilarious to put people in the food supply a coupla months ago, and a buncha people ended up turning into fucking wendigos.

[personal profile] kickingand 2016-04-25 04:03 am (UTC)(link)
[ Wait.

Wait.

Fuck all that other shit you just said, fuck all of it (even fuck his whiskey that he was about to knock back) because--
]

They Soylent Green'd this shithole?

[ Apparently the Leviathan are back in town. ]
bekommen: (now you've made an offer.)

[personal profile] bekommen 2016-04-25 04:57 pm (UTC)(link)
Sure did.

[Nick's mouth quirks up in a grim, angry smile.]

The shitshow just never stops here. They buried us alive, a time before that. Fear's a real fucking creep, if you hadn't caught that yet.
kickingand: (pic#9340428)

[personal profile] kickingand 2016-04-26 03:47 pm (UTC)(link)
[ ... uh-huh. Yeah, okay- that's weird. And fucked up. What else is new. ]

Looks like you crawled out okay. [ Because now is totally the time for jokes, amiright? ]
bekommen: (tip top ready for the rocket.)

[personal profile] bekommen 2016-04-26 05:50 pm (UTC)(link)
Well, technically, I got dug up.

[She gives him a one-shouldered shrug and takes another sip of her drink.]

Anyway, the point is - this place sucks.
