Title: Another Plane...
Description: 2.0 Kickoff
Cyrus - July 17, 2007 01:56 AM (GMT)
It was a normal day. Well, as normal as normal is anymore, since the rifts began. People were going about their everyday business.
Ryu Planeswalker was in Australia, studying rifts, while his companion Neko waits in their Australian safehouse. The mage known as Notty was continuing his travels and studies. In Latveria, the country's ruler was meeting with two of his top commanders... and chef.
Then rifts opened. All over the world, strange rifts opened near select individuals... you. Normally, portals are static rifts. They need a force acting on them to transmit the object through, like someone trying to walk through. Or gravity. But these rifts actively pull you towards, and into them. As you are pulled through the threshold, everything goes black.
You come to in an odd room. You can't see the walls, but the floor is made of something that looks like stone but feels like flesh.
Trevor, Immolation, and Nefidean all find themselves together. Dark Hawk, Notty, and Ryu are in a room with each other. Cyrus, Neko, and Red Silvers wind up in the same room. Iyestorm, Algasir, and Newb are in a fourth room. Daniel Kainson, however, finds himself alone.
In the shadows around you, there are faintly glowing eyes.
Newb - July 17, 2007 02:05 AM (GMT)
Newb looked around himself, not recognizing either of the people with him, or his location. Cautiously, he reached into a side-satchel and pulled out a plastic container, and ate the carrot donut within, peering at the shadows to see what he could see with enhanced vision.
Notty - July 17, 2007 02:09 AM (GMT)
Notty maintains some level of composure as he's sucked into the strange rift. His fingers make their way to two of the blades on his belt, but he waivers, his curiosity overwhelming his sense of self-preservation....
When he awakens, he hops to his feet, keeping one hand on his belt, as he looks around. Seeing the two others in the room only heightens his sense of precaution.
"Well, this is new." He remarks, mostly to himself.
Algasir - July 17, 2007 02:13 AM (GMT)
Algasir pulled himself up, a mop and bucket in his...fins.
"Where the fuck am I, dood?"
Placing the mop and bucket in his fanny pack (don't ask), he looked around and got his bearings. He noticed a guy eating...something, then squinting into the shadows. "You know, it's usually nice to sh-"
Then he noticed the eyes.
"What the fuck, dood? Where are we?"
Nefidean - July 17, 2007 02:15 AM (GMT)
Nefidean poked the floor a few times, either oblivious to everything else, or just completly facinated by what she had dubly named the bouncy squishy floor. She pokes it more and more wondering what would happen if she did it enough times, a child like giggel escapes each and every time she pokes. A small white cat watches nervously around the two of them sighing in abarrsment from the girl's habit.
"Seareana*!" The cat hisssed. "Now is not the time to be doing such things... I do not think we are alone."
The girl's red violet eyes blinked in oblivious cuirosity as she turned to the cat. "We're not... there's people over there, didn't you know that?" She said pointing towards the other two people.
The cat looked away and cleared her throat. "Yes... yes I did..."
Nefidean stood to her feet and waved at the two men. "Hi-oh!!"
*Seareana: Nefi's Home world Title for Princess.
Red Silvers - July 17, 2007 02:23 AM (GMT)
"What the... It can't be!" Red says, getting over his intial disorientation. "I didn't open a Warp!"
He fiddles with the device on his arm a few times, but it doesn't seem to respond. "Great."
Then he realizes he's not alone. "Does anyone know what's going on here?"
ryu planeswalker - July 17, 2007 02:26 AM (GMT)
The planeswalker looks around, refocusing his eyes to the dark before attempting to shift himself into the blind eternities and reappearing exactly where he was before
"Hmm there must be another Rift close, oh well not everything can be solved with My powers." a staff forming in his left hand as he disregards the eyes and the other captives
Cran - July 17, 2007 02:26 AM (GMT)
"Aiya, not so loud!" the dark-haired teenager, Trevor Gates, shot back, grasping his temples. "I have got the biggest gorram headache..."
Dark Hawk - July 17, 2007 02:28 AM (GMT)
Dark Hawk had manag to land on his head some how. DAMN this portal.
Righting himself up and dusting himself off he surveyed his surroundings and noticed the two people nearby.
"Did a rift open up in front of you two?" He asked in an even tone.
Before having a small conversation in his mind.
Hey...EXE why is there always glowing eyes?
........Because all Gods hate you.
ryu planeswalker - July 17, 2007 02:30 AM (GMT)
"Yes, and quickly enough I did not sense the buildup of energies."
Ryu says tapping his staff on the floor
Nefidean - July 17, 2007 02:32 AM (GMT)
Nefi put her finger to her lips and gave a loud hiss. "Shhhh! He has a headache!" She said in a reather loud whisper.
The cat's tail flicked as she stared at the young girl, obviously not ammused. "I can hear you know."
"HE HAS A HEADACHE!" She shouted in a rather loud voice pointing towards the scrawny young man.
The cat hung her head. "I said I can hear. CAN... unlike some people."
Nefi giggled shyly, rubbing the back of her head.
Notty - July 17, 2007 02:32 AM (GMT)
Notty mostly ignores the two, in favor of looking around the room they were supposedly 'trapped' in.
He places a hand against the flesh-like floor. "Hm, this is odd..."
ryu planeswalker - July 17, 2007 02:35 AM (GMT)
Ryu looks down at the floor and kneels down, pulling forth some black mana from his memories and presses his hand to the floor sending the pure killing energies into the flesh like material to see how it would be affected
Cran - July 17, 2007 02:36 AM (GMT)
The ringing in Trevor's head was second only to the jackhammer in the center of his brain.
"What I wouldn't give...for a prairie oyster right now..."
Dark Hawk - July 17, 2007 02:37 AM (GMT)
Dh reached inside his bag and put on his IMW and Flamethrower and went towards one of the eyes.
"Now Now....Who do we have here?"
Notty - July 17, 2007 02:41 AM (GMT)

Notty turns and looks at the green-robed individual. 'Another mage...? That's odd, I thought...'
"...I don't think that's a very good idea..." Notty mumbles.
ryu planeswalker - July 17, 2007 02:42 AM (GMT)
"Well we must surmise our surroundings" Ryu says looking towards the eyes
"And its not like there is anything here truly dangerous, to me atleast."
Immolation - July 17, 2007 02:45 AM (GMT)
Immolation groaned, pulling himself up to a decent sitting position.
Nefidean - July 17, 2007 02:45 AM (GMT)
Nefi looked around the black room of shadows. "Does any one know where we are? This isn't like going through the last time..." She said pulling out a pendent from inside her shirt.
After a few moments of stareing at the aqua jewel in the middel she sighed. "I think it's broken."
"We're in a void of some sorts, it doesn't suprise me." That cat said cleaning her paws for a moment before shaking her head in digust and putting her paw down.
Nefi began shaking the pendent by her ear and poking it a few times. "Nope... I'm pretty sure it's broken."
"I went through this before, it's interfeance."
"Look it's not even...." The color of the pendent changed from aqua to green. "Oh wait... yea.. it's interfearence."
Cran - July 17, 2007 02:48 AM (GMT)
"Where we are? This is..."
Trevor looked around for a minute.
"...Oh, this is just great. I have a hangover AND my beach is gone. What a load of..."
Notty - July 17, 2007 02:49 AM (GMT)

|"Well we must surmise our surroundings" Ryu says looking towards the eyes|
"And its not like there is anything here truly dangerous, to me atleast."
Notty rolls his eyes, "Well, you're certainly not lacking in confidence. But..."
'Whatever. Let him make his own mistakes. I should try and see if this place has any walls....'. He starts taking small steps in a single direction, away from the other two.
Immolation - July 17, 2007 02:50 AM (GMT)
Immolation shook himself awake, then looked around the room, noticing Trevor and Nefidean.
As a percaution, while standing up, Immolation slipped his hand into his right pocket before speaking.
"Uh, do you two know where we are?"
Cran - July 17, 2007 02:54 AM (GMT)
"Uh..." Trevor thought for a moment, trying to clear his head and ignore the head...ache. "Yeah, I think I read it on a billboard somewhere...This is the sixth level of Hell where awesomeness goes to die. Guh!"
Nefidean - July 17, 2007 02:55 AM (GMT)
Nefidean raised her hand eagarly. "Yes! I do! I do! I am right here, and you are over there, and that guy is laying on the ground!" She said placing her hand besider her mouth and added "He has a headache. Oh! And we seem to be in an endless void of a black room with squishy floors and red eyes watching everything we do."
The cat's fur stood on end as it jumped to his feet. "Red Eyes?! Where?"
Nefi pointed behind where the other man spoke. "Right there! They seem to move alot... unless there are many of them, but they seem to be watching. I wonder if they're waiting for us to do something."
Immolation - July 17, 2007 02:59 AM (GMT)
Immolation listened, then turned around to admire the scenery for a few seconds.
"...Well, if we're ever going to get out of here, I think we should cooperate."
Cran - July 17, 2007 03:02 AM (GMT)
"Right, cooperate, do either of you have any water? Or pickles?" Trevor asked hastily, wobbling on his feet as he cupped a hand over his eye.
Nefidean - July 17, 2007 03:02 AM (GMT)
Nefi smiled slapping her heals together as she stood up striaght and saluted. "Yes sir! Uh... how do we do that?"
Immolation - July 17, 2007 03:04 AM (GMT)
"Sorry, I don't have much in the way of supplies." immolation said, starting with Trevor...
"Uh, well, I guess we could tell each other our names." Immolation continued with Nefidean, thinking a fake name to use.
Cran - July 17, 2007 03:09 AM (GMT)
Trevor heaved a heavy sigh. Propping himself on one leg, he proceeded to pat his head, rub his stomach, and spin clockwise while whistling "Row, Row, Row Your Boat."
Falling over a few moments later, Trevor shook his head violently. "And that...doesn't leave this room. Stupid folk remedies...Anyway..."
He stood up, putting a hand on his hip and pointing to himself with his thumb, proclaiming, "Trevor Gates!"
Nefidean - July 17, 2007 03:11 AM (GMT)
Nefidean looked at the scrawny young man who had the headache. "I have a bunch of stuff. I have water and pickels... and cookies and flashlights and aspirn and pillows and swords and weapons of mass distructions... " She said getting cut off by the other man's suggestion. "Ahh yes! My name's Nefidilous Falon, and this is Kirranna Nedda, my bodygaurd."
Immolation - July 17, 2007 03:16 AM (GMT)
"Alright, well my name happens to be Edward Balis." Immolation said, hoping that he could keep the keep the fake name for awhile.
Cran - July 17, 2007 03:18 AM (GMT)
"Balis?" Trevor repeated. "That's a funky name. Meanwhile...
"Pickles? ASPIRIN?! Sign me up!" he exclaimed, rushing toward Nefi.
Nefidean - July 17, 2007 03:23 AM (GMT)
Nefidean giggled. "Edward! That's a funny name!"
She turned towards the scrawny man who was now next to her, blinking in cuirosity. "Gee... didn't know you liked pickels that much." she said. "How many did you want now?"
Immolation - July 17, 2007 03:32 AM (GMT)
Immolation took another breath of air since they apparently bought it and tries to feel around for a wall.
Cran - July 17, 2007 03:33 AM (GMT)
"Any you wanna spare!" Trevor replies. "Not a pickle fan, really, but they're great for hangovers!"
Nefidean - July 17, 2007 03:38 AM (GMT)
Nefidean held up her pendent and looked at it for a few moments, muttering some words under her breath as the jewle began to glow. The light gave form to a small vegitable type form before solidfying and tunring into a pickel. "Here you go."
Cran - July 17, 2007 03:40 AM (GMT)
Trevor blinked several times. "You just...make that necklace glow. And a PICKLE came out! What the hell!?"
Nefidean - July 17, 2007 03:49 AM (GMT)
Nefi smiled and waved her finger. "Magic!"
Cyrus - July 17, 2007 03:50 AM (GMT)
As Newb peers into the darkness, he sees that the eyes have nothing but the wall behind them. They themselves are attached to the wall, shifting around. Always staring...
There is no visible exit to the room.
Cyrus blinks rhythmically and looks around the room, before settling on Red Silvers. "I do not know. This is very unusual, the portals do not normally act like this. And... given our surroundings, it would be prudent to find an exit."
Nothing in particular happens in the room with Immolation, Nefidean and Trevor. They haven't made any overt acts.
As Ryu poured the killing energies into the ground, the surrounding floor turned ash black, and then quickly reverted to its stone-like color. The eyes in the room shut.
All around, in every room, the eyes shut and dissapeared (or, from Newb's vantage point, retracted back into the walls). A few moments later, they all reappeared, moving forward. as they came towards the like a large set of fanglike teeth could be seen. All attached to an odd lizardlike body, stone grey like the floor, and with the limbs all bending the wrong way. They are about three feet tall. And there are a lot of them.
They aren't very friendly, leaping forward, gnashing at those in the rooms.
Notty - July 17, 2007 03:53 AM (GMT)
"Surprise, surprise." Notty said, groaning, "Whatever this thing is, it didn't like what you did..."
He draws one of the daggers at his belt, a sparkling silver blade.
