Day and Night Posts
|Night 1: Troubles Begin|
The Bodyguard stalked the streets under the moon looking for their first victim. Geshtar saw Molly walking through a dark alley, lost after leaving the Pub's nightly party. He revved up his mech cycle, ready to mow down his target. At the last moment, a Scorpion Army Boy grabbed and drug Molly out of the way. Geshtar knew he was found out, and raced back to the castle.
Thanatos went about his own dark way. The first unlucky person to cross his path was Hirkala. "You!" Hirkala turned, startled. "You will have to do. Follow me." Hirkala obeyed, already loosing sense of reality. Thanatos led him to the castle.
Sheex was doing his job, stalking dark alleys. He saw araver far off and followed him, mimicking his every move. "Interesting. And useful." The Dark Stalker returned to the Emperor's castle.
The Resistance was also working late. Mara waited for any sign of life during midnight in Northtown. She watched Brandonb as he crossed the town square until she could recognize his face under the lamppost. She then returned to the base.
Krissie searched all over town, looking for Segul. He was a new face in town, and she wanted to make sure he wasn't in trouble. A few words with the townspeople and she learned he was sleeping in the inn. Safe and sound.
The next morning in the town square everyone was there, but Molly was still a bit shaken up...and Hirk was always spacing out...
|Day 1: A Curious Happening|
The gathering had been bickering all morning in the town square, pointing fingers every which way. When they finally made a decision, the group all looked at Segul. "Alright. It's got to be you." "Me??? Boss! Whatta we do now???" But he never got an answer as Sheex sneaked up behind him and planted a knife in the back of his neck. Segul fell lifeless at their feet, showing the scorpion tattoo where the knife had made contact.
As the group dispersed, one of them noticed Hirkala staring off into the sun. They walked forward and tilted his head forward so he wouldn't blind himself. Hirk took no notice. Apparently Jema hadn't arrived from Tasnica...
|Night 2: Steel and Stare|
Mara was up and wandering around late, peering around with suspicious eyes. No one noticed. No one cared. She was, after all, the town nut. Mara came across Hirkala, walking slowly in circles around the town square. He didn't notice as she studied his face carefully, and recognized his identity.
Krissie was also up late again. It was more unusual for her to be out at this time of night, but she knew how to go unnoticed. She was looking for the Darth Noob, but saw him nodding off in a park bench. Even if it was unusual, she could tell there was no need to fear for his safety.
Geshtar's blood was hot. He was ready to kill and make up for his losses. He steered his mechcycle with the engine off, relying tonight on surprise. He saw a figure go by. Nick Fleming. Geshtar nodded in approval and raced out into the streets in full blast. He carried Nick's body, impaled on the front ram of his mech bike, to the castle. Thanatos would appreciate this.
Brandon was out for a midnight stroll. There was once a time where this was a safe thing to do, but these days were ones of war and danger. He was being stalked. Several minutes passed and Sheex knew who he was working with, and returned to the Emperor. Brandon still wasn't alone. Thanatos wouldn't be at the castle to receive Geshtar's trophy at the moment. "Brandon!" Brandon wasn't prepared for the sight that would greet him when he turned around.
Anyone who saw them noticed the contrast as the two figures walked: one gilding, almost hovering, and the other one walking more like a robot.
|Day 2: Phantom and a Rose|
Darth Noob had no way out of this. They were all set against him, and he knew it. At the daily gathering, all stared at him. "Any last words?" They asked. Noob bowed his head as Sheex stood forward to kill him in the open. When the dark stalker wound up, Darth Noob said quietly. "Dyluck, I'm sorry." Purim fell dead in the town square, pierced through the heart.
Randi and Popoie were the last to leave.
Hirk and Brandon, in their wanderings, were coming closer and closer to the eerie haunted ruins in the east of Northtown. But where was Jema?
|Night 3: Ceremony|
Mara followed Molly tonight, and when Molly walked under a streetlight, she turned. Mara, still in the shadows, saw Molly's face, but no one saw her. The agent sneaked off, talking to herself. "Well that's good to know."
A Scorpion Army Boy walked the streets, his eyes wider than they usually would be, it was scary not having his buddy around. He went and looked for Maurice to try and see if he could be of any help. But he found Maurice in the pub, free from harm. No need to save him.
The bodyguard was fully active tonight.
Sheex was out doing his favourite hobby. Slick was hanging around outside the pub, open for all to see under the lantern by the doorway. Sheex sneaked up, and stood just outside the reach of the light. He could have stayed there as long as he wanted, but Sheex left as soon as he recognized Slick.
Geshtar was out riding his favourite mech bike. It was time to settle a score. He roared full blast into the park, where Molly Mae was. He came in fishtailing, knocking Molly to the ground. As his target got back up, slowly and painfully, Geshtar yelled at Molly. "Who's gonna save you now?" Molly was taken to the castle in the same manner as Nick.
Thanatos was out visiting his favourite place in town. The Eastern Ruins. There he saw Hirkala and Brandon staring at ancient statues in the old palace's courtyard. Near the entrance to the courtyard he saw a figure. The Dark Lich had an aura about him that allowed him to control any zombies in the area. Hirk and Bran went to investigate the figure, in a moment they came to Thanatos with Blablah, and his mind was already going. Thanatos nodded to his two minions. "Good work."
When morning came, Northtown was pretty quiet...
|Day 3: I Won't Forget|
No one argued today. They chose Woon as soon as they were gathered. Little did they know that things had taken a turn for the worst. Everyone gasped as Thanatos walked up to Woon. "Well. You had it coming with all the trouble you were giving me." With that, the Dark Lich gave a slight nod to Geshtar, seated on his mech rider a ways off, to make the avenging kill. Snickering, he powered up the engine and raced forward. Woon made his last effort. He whipped out his sword and jumped to the side. As the mechcycle raced by, he swung at Geshtar's leg and made contact. It was the Mana Sword. While Woon was distracted, the others heard something slice through the air. It was a ninja star, and it landed in the back of Woon's leg, crippling him. Geshtar raced forward in fury to finish the Mana Knight off.
The town square went quiet, but after several minutes passed, they all heard a scream from the east. Turning, those gathered saw Hirkala sprinting like mad, waving his arms, racing back into the town from the ruins. "That was not funny! Who would drug someone like me and leave me in that spooky old palace?!" Apparently his mind had cleared.
|Night 4: Morning is Here|
Hirkala was getting his last look at the world, and he knew it. He just wished it would be more than the quieted streets of Northtown. Blablah and Brandon were lost in the ruins and were probably never going to see the world through their own eyes again. He saw Slick coming towards him. They nodded heads as they passed. There was the sound of a roaring engine. Geshtar made quick work of Hirk.
Slick had escaped that encounter by a hair, only to find a ninja star in the back of his neck. "Gotcha!" Were the last words he heard.
That was all it took. Thanatos disposed of his zombies. The three Bodyguards, unfazed except for a bandage around Geshtar's leg, met in the town. They laughed together in the square, loud enough for all the town to hear.
But no one did. The Resistance had failed. The Scorpion Army was defeated. Sadly, no trace of them was ever found...
