INTRO LOG: BLACK CATS & WALKING UNDER LADDERS

Who: New arrivals and everyone else!
What: The intro log for February.
Where: The colosseum and all around the city.
When: February 10th-13th
Warnings: Fresh meat, creepy moving shadows, terrible luck, the screams of your loved ones.


Welcome to Hadriel, new friends. While waking up on the ground of a broken colosseum may not be the most pleasant arrival, you can at least find comfort in the fact that there's no giant monster immediately attempting to eat you. Plenty of the people already here will tell you that they weren't quite so lucky. But - wait. Is that something moving in the shadows, or is it just your imagination?

Of course it's not just your imagination. That would be way too easy. No, arriving along with everyone this time are wraiths, vengeful spirits that enjoy darkness, shadows, and misery. On the plus side, they won't try to kill you. On the minus side, their touch chills you and saps your energy, as well as inflicting a temporary curse of awful luck. Anything that can go wrong, will, including (and especially) things that might kill you. Wraiths are subtle and sneaky, so be sure to watch your back. That shadow isn't just a shadow.

Compounding the confusion the wraiths can cause, you just might wake up to the sound of chattering voices - only to be quite alone. A small flock of jabberjays has come through the Door as well. These genetically engineered birds are capable of mimicking entire human voices and conversations - as well as screams of terror and pain. Initially only in the arena and bringing only conversations from their world, they'll soon settle throughout the city and begin to learn the voices of those living in Hadriel. Your best friend screaming bloody murder just a street over? It could be them, or it could just be one of these lovely birds. Don't let it stress you out.

Once you've escaped the colosseum, hopefully without accidentally impaling yourself on your own weapon, 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!

PARK

[It's been only a month since Rey arrived to the underground city, and hasn't quite familiarized herself with the routine of newly arrivals. Hell, no one's really told her that there would be any new arrivals.

[Also being new here, it doesn't come as much of a surprise to find a new and unrecognizable face, either. There are still plenty of people whom Rey hasn't met yet.

[What is surprising is the destructive burst reverberating nearby in the park where Rey herself just happens to be exploring.

[However, Rey is a soldier, created from the ground up; she isn't one to be freaking out over a little explosion. She just might be on the offensive when she hears it, followed by the echo of some birds flitting through the area. Okay, now that's news to her.

[Lilith will soon come to hear a]
Hey! [that isn't her own voice coming from the vocal cords of some birds this time.

Are you trying to burn the whole place down?

[That's rich, coming from a firebug herself.]

[Annnd there's the company; she was starting to wonder if that guy from Hyperion was the only other person she'd be running into today.

Lilith squares her shoulders-- no telling whether this person will be accommodating enough not to shoot at her-- and turns to face the approaching newcomer. Her expression's casual, but by no means is she off her guard. Can't be too careful.
]

You're a little late for that. [She jerks her head in the direction of the jabberjay: it's starting to do SMG impressions now, a peppering of tiny gunshot bangs.] It's these dumb birds: they're copying the real deal from more than an hour ago.

[Sure enough, there's a burn the whole place down! up-tree. Lilith casts Rey a pointed look.] See?

[At first glance, Rey doesn't appear to be armed, so no. She's not going to be shooting at anyone anytime soon.

[She whips her head towards the sound of the gunshots. She blinks up at the bird that then shouts her words from just a moment ago back at her.]


Huh. That's... marginally annoying.

Innit? [There's some echoes of little late, little late and marginally annoying from the jabberjays. It'd be funny if it weren't already totally obnoxious.]

At least they're not divebombing people. I need a little break from things trying to eat me.
circumitus: Keep up the good work. (it's a 12/12/12 miracle)

[personal profile] circumitus 2016-02-11 06:42 pm (UTC)(link)
[Okay, now Rey is starting to wish that she'd brought her gun with her when she decided it'd be such a great idea to stroll through the park.]

Trying to eat you...?

Take it you've either come from the coliseum or the caves.

[Those are the places she knows of that are rife in things trying to eat people.]

Well, you got me.

[She hopes it wasn't too obvious she was fresh meat around these parts.]

I woke up in the coliseum today to those ghost... things. [Close enough.] As soon as I got out, I got ambushed by a bunch of giant blue cats.

Some welcome wagon they've got for us here.
circumitus: If you can't drink cheep beer and whiskey with me, I don't want you. (fuck it)

[personal profile] circumitus 2016-02-13 01:13 am (UTC)(link)
Ghost things? [That's also news to her.] Never seen them.

[Clearly she hasn't been around long enough to notice what is normal around here.]

Mm. Suppose someone should take care of that. The welcome wagon part, that is. Doubt everyone that comes here fresh out of the gate can do that exploding thing you did.

Let's hope you don't anytime soon, they're sort of assholes.

And I'd love to take care of that. Not, you know, constantly, but I'm not gonna say no to roasting some monsters. [Though that begs a question:] Are people always showing up through that Door thing, though? I knew I wasn't the first, but how long has this crap been going on?

Will take your word for it.

[And hope that the wraiths don't make a habit of coming to the city.

[Rey then shrugs. Hell if she knows.]
Just got here last month and never thought to ask. Though, judging by the fact that some people like to check out the parts where people tend to show up, think it's a pretty regular thing.

Welp. At least we've got a cute park to enjoy when we're not fighting stuff off. Or turning into the welcome wagon ourselves.

It's Lilith, by the way. You are?

Assuming that those things don't just meander into the park every now and then.

[It could happen.]

Rey. [Like Lilith, no last name given. Because it doesn't exist.]
