Chapter 1: The Journey Begins

Recommended Posts

"Robots, hmm? We'll see about that."

 

Shayuri stepped forward and flung her cloak back from her shoulders, freeing her arms. Her fingers twirled in a complex dance before her, locking, loosing, locking again in a rapid series of signs. In the air before her a circle appeared, drawn in midair by blue-white light.

 

She spoke then, in a loud, commanding voice that rolled over the field...carrying far longer than it had any right to. The language was rough sounding, maybe a little like German. As she incanted, runes appeared within the circle, one by one. Once the inner ring was filled with runes the entire array flashed brightly and erupted into a horizontal stroke of lightning that painted the entire battalion of robots in livid black and white for a camera-flash instant.

 

It struck one of the larger robots squarely, and immediately the target was enveloped by an oval of translucent blue light. The two energies writhed and snapped at each other, and finally the lightning lanced through and licked over the robot's armored hull, drawing a blackened line down it.

 

The dragon-sage swore under her breath. "All right then, the big ones have some kind of force field. Good to know!"

 

Spoiler

Rolled a 22 to hit, for 162 damage. Resulted per Justin in Discord.

Spent 8 ep to cast spell.

"Obviously," Ginka drawled flatly, back to her grumpy baseline, "I'll start thinning their numbers so we can collect a few stragglers after we're done. Try not to make me more work than you have to."

 

She shot forward through the air, a petite brunette of a saiyan in red-and-white with her palms pressed together as she concentrated her Ki into a purple sphere that bled one, two, five, seven streamers of energy in her wake. The streamers gained the faintest hint of scales, eyeslits, and nostrils as their creator came to a halt half-way between the (presumed) Red Ribbon Army and her... Well, allies if she forced herself to think well of them. Up and over the streamers curved and coiled, splitting at the tip to reveal pseudo fangs and an ominous pink glow at their core, leaking energy in the heartbeats before they were unleashed on the seven nearest grunts, writhing through the air with borrowed malice. "Hydra's. Flurry," she growled out between clenched teeth, eyes dancing as she fed more Ki into the shot. 

 

The universe rarely granted medics mercy, so Ginka's ancestors had long since stopped granting mercy to those who might make their work more difficult. 

 

Spoiler

Hydra's Flurry, weapon 10 with spreading 6 and homing 2.

 

# 29 (29 to hit on seven targets)

After Ginka finished her barrage of ki energy, Calvin flew in. Funny thing, for all his pursuit of mind and body, he'd never really fought before. Competitions were one thing, but truly aiming to hurt or even kill someone? This was new territory, and he wasn't sure how he felt about it, even if the Neo-Red Ribbon Army was just as dangerous as its predecessor. But practice and training took over as he landed and spun on his foot, delivering the other leg in a sweeping kick to the first soldier and using the momentum to jump and bring a two-handed axe strike on a second man's head.

 

Rinse, repeat.

Five actions, five unarmed attacks.

Shayuri's attack had indeed caused abit of a stir from one of the mecha, as systems blinked as the powerful forcefield took most of the brunt of the attack but some of the powerful surge got through to melt plating.   The machine was shielded, but still a machine, and Such an attack would not go unanswered.
 

It raised it's right arm and unloaded with a powerful blast from the energy cannon that was underslung.  (need a 23 or better to defend, otherwise it's 130 damage)  Even as the second mecha disgorged dozens of Missiles at Daturra(Defense 25 100 damage each the attacks are homing)
 

Ginka and Calvin's combined assault on the troopers was impressive.  Ginka's attack hit a fair number, and it didn't actually put them down, it cracked armor with each blow, forcing them to ackknowledge her as a threat.   Calvin meanwhile, registered even higher.  His blows were stronger, and while not fatal to the soldiers outright, the five he struck were out of the fight.  Their armor saved their lives, but none of their injuries were minor.   The remaining twenty-eight troopers tried to bring their  weapons to bear, but only a few managed shots.  (each of you needs to dodge dc 20 vs 3 attacks each at 55 damage a hit)
 

Goren was among the last to move, and not wanting to take the opponents of his new allies, he busied himself with something abit lesser, but needed.  He launched a series of energy attacks which disabled two of the transports, making sure they wouldn't be flying out of here on them.

Three dodges to attempt...

[2d6+20 (3 2)] [2d6+20 (1 3)] [2d6+20 (4 6)] 

So three successes with 25, 24, and 30.

Hitting back with a second Hydra's Flurry, same seven targets...

[2d6+19 (5 5)] So 29 to hit total, 69 damage a pop.

HP 450/450 EP 436/450 

 

"Tougher than they look," she begrudgingly acknowledged, dancing forward through the shots as if the rest of the world was moving in slow motion, "Pathetic aim though."

 

The Saiyan healer gathered more Ki between her hands, purple light birthing a brood of seven serpentine projectiles. The Red Ribbon soldiers she'd targeted before were treated to a second round of homing destruction, a writhing attack now from directly overhead. Ginka kept one ear out for the sound of her allies falling prey to the attacks of these ill-trained fighters. Between her and the refreshingly competent native male, they hopefully had the focus, but you never knew. Amateur fighters surprised you in the least pleasant way.

"The originals weren't trained for fighting ki-wielders." Calvin mused, flowing between the diffuse volley with ease. "Then again, their leader wanted the Dragonballs just so he could wish to get taller. And no," Calvin interjected as he drew an incredulous look from the Saiyan medic, "I wish I were making that up." He grabbed one of the shooters, flipped him in the air, and then Calvin flung him into a packed knot of the enemy formation.

dragon_symmetra___overwatch_by_totemos_dbr72jj-fullview.jpg.dcfdbcd54c532bf775dbbf8e20b7e9b2.jpgShayuri ducked down and somersaulted forward in time to let the blast from the robot howl over her and impact on the ground beyond as she nimbly leapt back to her feet.

 

"This is going to take forever at this rate," she muttered as she put her hands together. "And I have better things to do with my time."

 

Her fingers interlocked, then quickly made a series of rapid-fire, complex gestures. Immediately those that could sense chi felt a pulse of power from within her; like the distant rumble of a torrent that follows the opening of floodgates.

 

She flung back her cloak, throwing it to the ground. Under it Shayuri wore a suit of armor crafted of overlapping scales that seemed like metal, but of an almost organic sheen, not metallic at all. The Dragon-Sage tugged at releases woven into the sleeves, and the ties that held the scale mail together loosened.

 

...and just in time. Shayuri was beginning to grow.

 

Within seconds she was towering over what she had been. Her armor swiftly discarded even as black and red plated scales formed all over her body. Her hair was replaced by scales and her horns grew significantly, arching back and out from her forehead. A long, powerful tail took shape swishing behind her...and she opened wings that rose high up over her shoulders, dark and batlike and colossal.

 

Her eyes gleamed with a hellish yellow-orange light...and a similar light burned in her chest, leaking out from between the armored plates that had taken shape there. The light throbbed with each beat of her heart.

 

Then Shayuri opened her mouth impossibly wide, like a snake's unhinged jaw, and the glow from within her could be seen down her gullet as well. She inhaled and the light of dragonfire grew brighter and brighter until it was nearly too much to look at...

 

She exhaled.

 

A wave of unnaturally intense flame roared out from Shayuri, washing over the ranks of robots to her right, cracking the concrete and heating the metal of their hulls to a livid yellow-white, like steel in a forge. She then turned to her left and inhaled again. The ranks of robots to her left then found themselves likewise bathing in dragonfire as the smell of sulfur, burning vegetation and melting rock filled the air!


 

Spoiler
