Intro Log: Death Comes

Who: New arrivals and everyone else!
What: The intro log for July.
Where: The colosseum and all around the city.
When: July 10th-15th
Warnings: Deathclaws. That's all you really need to know.

As usual, the new arrivals in Hadriel will be waking up on the dirt ground of the colosseum, and as usual, they won't be waking up alone. This month brings coat hangers of all shapes and, uh, sizes strewn about the colloseum floor around all of the new arrivals.

Get up, get out, meet and greet, find some new exciting interior decorating options, but don't forget about the more prominent threat: the (newly) local deathclaws roaming about in the inner halls of the arena. These deathclaws are vicious bipedal creatures with long arms ending in curved talons, horns ripe for goring and, of course, teeth as long as fingers. These animals have been engineered to be as deadly as they can possibly be, so you might want to buddy up before taking one on.

Have you escaped from the deathclaws? Made a few friends? Not died horribly? Great! 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 July 10th-15th.
► Feel free to make your own logs as well!
► All characters arrive with phones that have network communication.
► Please put your character's name and open/closed in the subject line of your starters!
circumitus: Your first mistake was not throwing your beer at the RA and running. (i literally hate you so fucking much)

[Having already dealt with an unpleasant run-in with the creatures on her own, Rey knows better than to go rushing into a fray unprepared and unarmed. Not that she's helpless without a gun, but something with a little more range would certainly be preferable to getting up close and personal with these things.

[Range, however, is something that she does not have. So a hot blur flashes by, just before Tazendra's field of view of the creature--

[--and finds that it's a woman, wearing a strange hooded armor, punching the deathclaw right in the face.

[Which doesn't seem to have done much other than piss it off and leave a burning hole in the side of its skull, but it's certainly knocked it back a few paces.

[Taking what few precious seconds she now has, she turns her head towards the woman.]

Hey, can you fight?

[They could also run, but if recent experience has taught her anything it's that they'll only be chased down, anyway. And these bastards are fast.]

I can, but I am without a sword, as you can see.

[Which is frustrating when there's this... individual is clearly fighting. And can knock back monsters with her fists. Life clearly is not fair.]

[A sword, huh?] Here!

[She unlatches a scabbard hanging at her belt and tosses it on the ground. What Tazendra will find is a claymore sword dropped in her path.]

You'll probably make better use of it, anyway.

[Good thing Rey had made a detour back home after her first encounter with a damned walking meat grinder.]
fearlessherosheart: Tazendra with a sword, parrying (sword face)

My thanks.

[and she does seem to know how to use it as she draws it and advances on the nearby deathclaw, trying an experimental slash. The monster, seeing that one target was approaching it with a sharp thing and a lack of tough armor, swung its claws at Tazendra, trying to grab her. She jumped back, parrying the blow but it did knock her a bit off balance.]
