Re: Free For All Zone

Sorry for the wait, guys. Been caught up in playing Chrono Trigger. XP

Anyhoo, welcome back, Harper. =3 I look forward to Updating you again. <3

Ziz's Mountain

Sandaa – You and Kal stand up with each other’s help, and you shoot a violent glare at the Golem, enraged at its relentless attacks towards you and your companions. Surveying your Pokmon’s condition, you bite your lip, realizing the full extent of physical damage that’s been rendered upon them. Your hand lingers by your belt for a moment, hesitating to send out someone else to finish off the battle. However, as you watch, Ramoth and Raphael gradually begin to regain their footing, and you allow your hand to relax, realizing that they’re not about to give up this fight, and neither are you.

Clenching the hand you would’ve you used to summon another Pokmon, you point at Raphael and Ramoth significantly in order to disguise your first intent. You proclaim your trust in them, stating that they must keep going if they refuse to surrender. The two turn to you and nod in agreement, their eyes blazing with fighting spirit. To back up their resolve, they let out aggresive war cries which display the abundance of power they still have remaining. You smirk and nod approvingly at their response before giving them your orders. Upon receiving them, they nod in understanding, and turn back to face the remaining Golem and Graveler, ready to execute their plan.

Raphael starts off by retracting once again into his shell and rotating rapidly once again, this time using the speed of his attack to drill a hole into the earth, vanishing abruptly from the opponents’ sight. Ramoth reacts simultaneously, flapping her wings in order to rise suddenly off the ground, although still remaining cautiously close to the earth as she feels she must still be wary of attracting Ziz’s attention. The Golem and Graveler glare at her, hovering above their reach so that they can’t do anything to harm her. She grins toothily at the earthbound beasts rolling around below, and fixes Golem with a stern gaze, staring it down with a fearsome countenance. Her glare is powerful enough to cause the Golem to balk a bit, unsure whether or not to attack either of these two fearsome warriors. Ramoth leaves it no room to make a decision, as she quickly opens her mouth and starts to spin around, spewing fire onto the earth. One of the Graveler who previously received one of Ramoth’s flame attacks starts to panic upon seeing the ground catch fire around it, immediately rolling up into a DEFENSE CURL again to try and protect itself (to little avail). Meanwhile the Golem is a bit calmer and attempts to put out the fire by stamping with its feet, while the other Graveler sees the leader’s actions and tries to mimic them.

Their attention effectively taken away from Raphael by the fire, he uses the time to quickly tunnel towards the Golem. He then re-emerges unexpectedly from the earth directly underneath his target, toppling the rock beast. Before the Golem can stand up, Raphael positions his cannons to fire two fierce jets of water upon the Golem’s back, forcing the boulder back down by focusing on one point. At last the attack finishes, and Golem slowly manages to rise, angrily facing its assailant. With an enraged roar it runs forward and attacks Raphael with a powerful STONE EDGE. The close proximity now becomes a double-edged sword for Raphael and he gets knocked violently onto his back. This final assault combined with the all the injuries he’s received thus far causes him to pass out, unable to go on any longer.

Ramoth remains hovering above the earth, still able to fight as her height prevented her from receiving any attacks. Two Graveler and Golem remain, however all three appear to be especially weak at this point.

*Blastoise has been KO’d*

What will you do now?

The Rock Garden

Harper – You give the locket to Wingull to wear, who shivers slightly as the cold metal touches him, but otherwise makes no complaint. The three of you then continue on past the pile of rocks, and enter another section you haven’t seen before. Or have you? After some studying, you conclude that this place is nearby where you first arrived. You realize you must have walked in a complete circle around the entire garden. Over there you can spot the tall rock with the shelf that you had lain under, and on top of it is…

You gasp. You hadn’t seen it before since the shelf had blocked it from view when you were lying down, but now that you’ve approached from the side, you can distinguish clearly the long, graceful form of a Dragonair curled up on top of the rock. Its elegance reminds you of the Milotic statue you’d witnessed earlier, only this figure appears more celestial against the ruby and lavender background. Its back is arched, the wings on the sides of its head represented by crude shards, which are spread open as if its about to take flight from a cliff. The tip of its tiny horn touches the small moon which has gradually begun to appear in the sky, appearing very magical and ethereal. Overall, the image looks so very alive, even though it’s only made of stone like the others. The sight of it absolutely stuns you.

Something catches your eyes, and you look a bit closer, examining the sculpture carefully. The sky is beginning to get dark, but there is still some pale light remaining from the sunset. Something on the Dragonair statue seems to be catching that light, causing it to sparkle brilliantly, like a small bright star. The location of the object seems to be somewhere around the creature’s neck. You move closer, but the stature is so high that you still can’t really see what it is. Looking at the statue’s pedestal, you find that there are depressions in the rock which could serve as hand and footholds for you if you wish to climb.

There’s also something else here that you hadn’t observed before. Behind the rock, standing a few yards away is, strangely enough, what appears to be an electricity pole. It towers high above you, casting a long, thin shadow across the ground. In fact, you’ve been standing in its shadow for a while now. Now that you’re aware of it, it feels a little strange. As if standing here it’s much too cold… When you try to see where the wires attached to the pole lead, you find your vision obstructed by tall trees. Wait, trees?

You blink. Again you encounter something you hadn’t picked up on when you’d first visited this place. To your direct right is a way out from the garden. The path leads through a grove of coniferous trees and into a deep forest, which is most likely the
Alpine Forest you’ve read about in the guidebook. As the earth recedes into the wood, it becomes covered in a light layer of frost. How come you never noticed this exit before?

You suddenly glance down instinctively. The pole’s shadow beneath you wavers momentarily, then straightens itself. You frown.

What will you do now?
